Fire Every Obama Holdover Now

Fake Obama

This is war.

Did the Obama Administration Try Stacking the Deck Against Trump at the Justice Department?

Amid Thursday’s over-hyped brouhaha about Jeff Sessions meeting with the Russian ambassador, a curious detail emerged. In Sessions’s recusal memo, it was explained who at the Justice Department would be handling any investigations into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. “Consistent with the succession order for the Department of Justice, Acting Deputy Attorney General and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente shall act as and perform the functions of the Attorney General with respect to any matters from which I have recused myself to the extent they exist,” reads Sessions’s official statement on the matter.

Except that if the Obama administration had its way, Dana Boente wasn’t supposed be the U.S. attorney to handle these matters in the event that Sessions recused himself. On February 10, USA Today reported the following:

Seven days before he left office, President Obama changed the order of succession without explanation to remove Boente from the list. Obama’s order had listed U.S. attorneys in the District of Columbia, the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California.

That seems like awfully suspicious behavior. In fact the USA Today story noted this is pegged to the news that Trump quietly signed an executive order restoring Boente to the line of succession. The Obama administration chicanery was likely brought to White House’s attention after Obama holdover and acting Attorney General Sally Yates tried to usurp the powers of the president and countermand his immigration executive order, actions for which she was summarily fired.

Why would the Obama administration make this eleventh-hour change to the line of succession at the Justice Department? “At the time, I was told it was done in consultation with Trump transition,” Gregory Korte, the USA Today reporter who wrote the story quoted above, told me Thursday. “Looking back, that’s clearly not the case.”

In fact, it seems like it was quite obviously not the case. The man Obama placed at the head of the line of succession is D.C.’s U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips, who is quite cozy with President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder. He is a former senior adviser to Holder, and he stayed on to work under Obama’s next AG Loretta Lynch before Obama appointed Phillips D.C.’s U.S. attorney in 2015. But Phillips goes way back with Holder—Holder first hired Philips in the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1994. It’s also safe to say that the AG offices in the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California are not hotbeds of Trump supporters.

Here’s the cherry on top:

As soon as it was evident Boentes was going to be handling any Russian investigations, Schumer called on him to appoint a special prosecutor.

Ever been so angry you wanted to scream and break things? That’s me right now.

Trump needs to fire every single Obama holdover. Now.

    First, until he gets his cabinet in he can’t get rid of all the appointees — the ones he has in are doing that (see: Tillerson, 7th floor of state; McMasters at NSA, etc).

    Second, I’m watching Tucker and that Rep. Sean Maloney (D-NY) is a smug, lying bastard. Anyone who watched the tape of Franken’s question knows that Session did not commit perjury –he answered the question that was fucking asked of him. Sorry it wasn’t the question they *wished* was asked and they are *pretending* was asked (hence Sessions’ need to “clarify”). This is grade-A bullshit.

    But I’m not worried — Trump outsmarted the entire GOP and beat 16 candidates, including the anointed and well-funded Jeb!, and then he outsmarted the MSM and DNC by beating Hillary. And these numb-nuts think they can beat him now? LOL

    • Venus says:

      Please note: Trump already quietly outsmarted them with Boentes, right?
      Everyone is running around with their hair on fire screaming RUSSIANS!!! Trump quietly executes his agenda.

      • Constance says:

        HA! I love it!! The Dems got Trumped.

      • lateblum says:

        Boente is not the name I heard on NPR less than 30 minutes ago. I listened for her name; it was not reported. I was so surprised. But I can’t tell you what name the reported. If they rebroadcast that segment, I’ll listen for it.

    • You and I both know that perjury is hard to prove – if there is any ambiguity or wiggle room in the question or the answer that is reasonable doubt.

  4. Oh, it gets better:

  5. lateblum says:

    You have ppl like Maxine Waters running off at the mouth talking “impeachment”. You have people like Rachel Maddow saying we “must get rid of him (Trump)”. Cabinet nominees have not even had hearings. Congress members are demanding resignations of cabinet after setting them up to “fail”. I know I tend toward conspiracy theories. But the treachery is too widespread and seemingly coordinated for it to be merely a paranoid notion.
    This is such obvious gaslighting. I can hardly stand to be near people who I used to be close to because they think anyone who supports or voted for Trump is “deplorable” or stupid, or racist, etc., etc. That’s rich, I’m deplorable, and THEY are trying to overthrow the honestly and democratically elected POTUS. Just because they don’t like him.

    • lyn says:

      People are sheep.

      • Constance says:

        Democrats are sheep. But the Dem leadership is smart in that they realize God’s favorite model of human is stupid and gutless and they give the stupid and gutless someone to follow and a simple ideology with lots of chanting and emotionally satisfying outrage. That is what Republicans are missing. Stupid people can vote and you need to have a strategy to deal with them.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Confirmation only needs a simple majority, GOP is the majority, why not finish off the confirmation hearings with only GOP if Dems want to delay and obstruct ?

      Cripes, we got that stupid Obamacare passed without a single GOP vote.

    • elliesmom says:

      My problem isn’t getting my head around the idea that Bill Cosby had sex with a lot of women or that drugs were involved. I can also believe the price of getting something the women wanted from him included sex. What has bothered me from the beginning is none of the women stepped forward while he was a media darling, but so many came out of the woodwork when he said things about the black community they didn’t like.

      • We all know that there is a world out there where attractive young women give themselves to powerful men in exchange for financial rewards.

        • What is really disgusting is when parents basically pimp out their kids. That includes the kids that were abused by Roman Polanski and Michael Jackson.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Exactly what Trump meant on the Billy Bush tape, only with more colorful words that seems to have unhinged the ladies of the vile prog left. Like they have a chance with a powerful man! 😀

          • Constance says:

            I think the Democrat ladies auxiliary is pissed because they sold out Hillary in 2008 and let the Black Man go first and they thought they had the promise that the White Woman was next in line. But the Progs couldn’t deliver for Hillary. Why the ladies are pissed at Trump and his deplorables instead of at the Progressive Grand Poobah’s or themselves is beyond me. Maybe they’re wallowing in cognitive dissonance.

      • votermom says:

        Yeah. It’s always:
        “I innocently went with the horny celebrity who had been making moves on me to his hotel room. And there he *gasp* plied me with intoxicants then demanded sex . Unexpectedly! I was so shocked!
        I have been so traumatized I waited decades until Gloria Allred came knocking to talk about.”

        • DeniseVB says:

          Has Allred ever had a successful lawsuit with her parades of bimbos? I knew she drove Herman Cain out of the race, which seems to be her only intention, since those accusers simply disappeared. As did Trumps. Funny that Bill Clinton’s have a longer shelf life, they’re still around 🙂

  6. mothy67 says:

    I’m wondering if Trump won by a much larger margin and it was so yuuuge that all the duplocity could not stop the train.
    I am so pissed little girl has never gotten a B in math. This year she brings home an A one day then an F. Then an A then a C. I can’t help her. The common core stuff makes no sense. I will not let her fall behind. Yesterday was an F. You betcha I got on the horn asap. Today she takes a n evaluation for 200 then 550/month. Just maybe if a small school wasn’t saddled with immigrants that don’t speak and/or read I wouldn’t have the need. Go Betsy.

    • Her grades right now don’t really matter. Was is important is that she learns the basics (3 R’s) and that she learns how to learn. Her HS grades and SAT/ACT test scores matter. So do her race, gender, and sexual orientation. You can’t do anything about the last three, but unless things change she will be judged for college admissions as much by those as by her intelligence and grades.

      Basic Rule of Parenting: If your kid reaches 18 and isn’t fucked up, you succeeded. Anything more is gravy.

      • mothy67 says:

        Math is cumulative so if you fall behind and it becomes a chore you hate it. She’s going to pull off a B for the year, but she won’t be in top math class. I don’t care about the grade it’s the understanding. They have no texts and almost no homework. Common core sidelines parents. Pup does not have a math brain, but she can work to get it. I fucked up by missing a little while my dad was in a coma. It might cost me some money now but will be worth it down the road. I’m not so sure the teachers know what they’re doing. Only second year of common core. It’s an easy fix she will enter 6th prepared.

        • I started school before the “New Math” came along. My kids went to school before Common Core. They keep improving education and things keep getting worse.

        • Constance says:

          I found the way they teach math now is not cumulative. They jump around to unrelated topics. My son got lucky because he got a young energetic male teacher who pulled out some really old, worn out math books and taught through them. The modern books were not understandable.

    • elliesmom says:

      Worrying about the fluctuation of grades day to day isn’t as important as how she’s doing at the end. If she didn’t catch on to a new concept immediately, but she did after she saw it a few times, it’s perfectly fine. It’s like losing weight. In the natural process, we gain a bit and lose a bit over the course of time on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, and as long as the net trend is down, we’re moving in the right direction. Common Core math isn’t the bogeyman it’s made out to be. It’s a way of teaching kids to “think in math” instead of learning rules and how to follow them. Kind of like learning a new language through immersion instead of through grammar and translation. It’s too bad her teacher feels a need to put a grade on everything.

      • mothy67 says:

        That’s why I think spending the money now is worth it. She takes an evaluation today. She is not thrilled. The joy of a cell phone. Fine don’t go no phone. Yes one hour tops a day on phone and two on weekends. I am not some maniac insisting on perfection I see problem I can fix.

        • The most important factor in Pup’s life is that she has a loving, caring, involved parent. I wish all kids had a parent like you.

          • mothy67 says:

            Thanks Im going to read her that today each time she informs me I’m an ogre. Some of her friends are buddies with their parents. Don’t see how that works out.

          • Every parent that has ever lived has been called an ogre by his/her kid at some point.

          • Constance says:

            When my daughter was a teen and first got her phone she put a happy energetic ring tone for her Dad who never did any child direction or responsibility and put on some Gothic organ music for me. They get over it. Especially in College when they find out that some kids got there and don’t have the basics or know what to do when the going gets rough. And my kids do feel the fact that I demanded they were prepared for life showed that I love them.

    • votermom says:

      When my kids were younger I used to wonder if I should look into the local Kumon center. They are franchises so they vary depending on who’s running it. But for Math all the practice is good I’ve heard.

      • mothy67 says:

        This is a chain as well but it is located in between the the #11 and #21 high schools in the state (#11 is highest ranking in Western PA). I do my homework. I figure those people are more likely to give a shit.

        • votermom says:

          There are online equivalents too – not Kumon but sites or apps with exercises/problems to get through.

          • mothy67 says:

            Oh no no no. We are moving into the age where I have to be an asshole or so she thinks. What age does it end. She’ll sit with a tutor which frees up our time to argue about why at ten she can not watch 50 Shades of Grey — I kid you not some of her friends have seen it. She is 10! I dreaded Twilight.

          • Constance says:

            I found the sooner they went into their contrary years the sooner they came out of it. Although with boys there is the two alpha males in the same house problem and that can be volatile.

        • Somebody says:

          Tim there are so many things available to help. There are free online programs. There are all sorts of math games, which for some kids is a great way reinforce skills without the grill and drill. Then there are actual math programs used for homeschool. Math U See, Singapore, Saxon, Horizon, Teaching Textbooks, Miquon, Abeka. The list goes on and on.

          I would strongly suggest you pick up the book “What Your 5th Grader Needs to Know”, by E.D. Hirsch $16.59 on amazon. The one for sale now is revised to conform with common core. If you would prefer you could buy a used one for less money that is pre common core. In addition to that book you can pick up the workbook that goes along with it called “Making The Grade”, obviously you’d want the 5th grade one. HINT you could also buy the 6th grade versions and use some of it to give her a jump on 6th grade.

          The Hirsch books are based on a classical education, they include a lot more than most students get in any public school. Buy the book now and look it over, figure out things she may not have been exposed to and areas where you think she needs a little help to completely master a skill set. Use this book as a guide then branch out from there and make a plan of attack. Summer will be here before you know it. Trust me you can spend as little as an hour a day working with her and it will make a significant difference. If she can master everything in the Hirsch book she will be well ahead of her peers, I promise.

          Learning doesn’t have to be grill and drill. You can plan fun things both of you will enjoy to help her master whatever skill you feel she needs help with. The Hirsch books will help you figure it out, then let google help you. Search for unit studies, you’ll find some really creative and fun ideas. Search simply for lessons or homeschool lessons on a particular topic or skill, you’ll find a variety of ways to present information. There are a lot of homeschoolers that share ideas and there are also a lot of classroom teachers that share things. You know your daughter better than anyone else, so you’ll know what approach would work best. If she’s not into dinosaurs then an approach using dinosaurs would fall flat for example.

          Trust me on this, it will be a wonderful experience for you both, it will cost a lot less than tutoring and as a bonus it will make your bond with your daughter stronger.

          • mothy67 says:

            I will get that, but she has hit an age where a third party might be better. Socialization has become way too important. Partly my dad’s fault for yelling look at me I’m in a coma. Intubated, anything for attention.
            She isn’t arguing about going. Not happy. I said I love ya kid and we are nipping this in the bud. She said no you don’t you just don’t want to be a waitress. Whatever that means. Wasn’t aware it was an aspiration.

          • mothy67 says:

            Oops also thank you.

          • tpcelt says:

            Try the Khan Academy app. The math tutorials are free and grouped by grades. They’re used by homeschoolers a lot and are well-regarded. I’ve looked at them for refreshers on stuff like decimals and learned more than I ever did in class. (There are also free tutorials on other school topics.)

        • tpcelt says:

          For socialization, you might want to check a 4-H program. 4-H is now into a lot of stuff other than farming if that’s not your interest. A popular one in NYC that I’ve heard about is in robotics. Info about 4-H is available on their website.

    Rahm Emanuel ‘sez

    “We have repeatedly made specific requests of the administration for greater law enforcement integration and resources; a higher priority placed on federal gun prosecutions; and funds restored toward mentoring and after-school and summer jobs programs that have proven to be positive alternatives for our young people,” Emanuel said in a statement following Trump’s address.”
    “…and funds($$$) restored toward mentoring and after-school and summer jobs($$$)programs that have proven that have proven to be positive…”
    So successful and positive that Chicago had for the year 2016
    716 shot and killed
    3,663 shot and wounded
    Total shot 4,379
    Total homicides 801
    Now there’s a Democratic Party success story if I’ve ever heard one.
    Yep, send more money so the Dem’s who have run Chicago for the last 50 years can piss it away.
    But don’t spend any of that billion$ plus that is spent harboring illegal’s.

          • Lulu says:

            They never mention cheap drugs from Mexico flooding the streets of Chicago do they? The gangs fight over drugs, selling drugs, territory to control drugs, drug culture “honor”, etc. Politicians are financed by it and like it and don’t want it to stop. Cartels like the mafia set up fake businesses and organizations to launder money and to keep money flowing to entities to keep it all running. The cartels want blacks killing each other so they can move in and take over the territory, schools, city, county and state government with the self genocide going on. What does Emanuel care? Both pay him off. Money from either side is still green. A wall, deportations, targeting cartel networks messes up the business model for old Rahm. The Mexican cartels are gaining control of Chicago both in crime, politics and demographics. Rahm gets paid either way. His “needs” have nothing to do with going after the core problem which is the border and the flow of drugs into the interior of the country.

          • lateblum says:

            What Lulu said. And now it has moved even further north and right into my little town (as well as west and south into those little towns as well). We had a primary election on Tuesday. It was the first primary for mayor ever… well, at least in the 40 years I’ve lived here. There were no good choices. I had intended to vote for the guy who went to school with my son, despite my belief that no one my son’s age should be mayor of this little town. Then I read more about the candidates and when the word “progressive” entered into his biography, I decided against him. (There were other things that raised flags for me, but that was the big one.) I had given some thought to voting for the man who had the most business experience. He is a developer and owns his own businesses. But he was endorsed by the current mayor who supports and encourages our being a “sanctuary city”. So, No. A couple of the others (and this is why there was a primary – so many candidates), had less experience and so I went with the guy who had a history of drug dependence. I figured that if we already knew of his prescription drug dependence (treated) and gay life style, what might we have missed. Well, I totally missed his support from “my” Congressperson. Yes, the inestimable Ms Schakowsky endorsed him. So now, when the election is held in April, I have to write in my own name or vote for someone who will either support sanctuary city status or endorse sanctuary status for this little town where high taxes go toward housing and feeding druggies, freeloaders, gangbangers, or illegal immigrants. ffs

  8. CiscoKid says:

    That’s why when I hear “gun violence” and not drug war, I tend to get p’od.
    Chicago has a very large gang population, they’re armed and fighting over territory.
    It’s so bad that there is fighting inside the same gang.
    The drug market is very lucrative as I suppose it is anywhere.
    You laid it out pretty well.

    Yes! It’s more than about time!


    It’s time to turn a spotlight on Barack Obama ­ the real Barack Obama

    It is time to get hold of those college transcripts that Obama has hidden so carefully, the ones that probably show him pretending to be a winsome African student so as to get admitted despite grades that I’m quite certain are mediocre at best.

    It is time to explain what kind of a marriage Obama and Michelle have that sees Valerie Jarrett move into their new home with them.

    It is time to find out just what kind of ties Obama had with violently-inclined pro-Palestinian activists ­ and what’s on that tape from a pro-Palestinian luncheon that the Los Angeles Times protects so fiercely.

  17. taw46 says:

    “This bullshit about Russia is a lame excuse to explain away Hillary’s failure to run a proper campaign. And Barack Obama, the disgraceful wreck that he is, wants to discredit Donald Trump. Trump, apparently, has finally realize this fact that has stopped providing Obama with ammunition. Obama is a traitor. He is guilty of sedition. His Presidency was a disgrace and now he is working covertly with supporters to try to sabotage Trump. We can hope he is eventually arrested. Short of that, Trump needs to press on with keeping his promises.”

  20. Somebody says:

    I read an October 2016 edition of Time magazine yesterday in a doctor’s office waiting room. It was the one with the melting Trump on the cover titled total meltdown or something like that.

    It was quite interesting reading given the current environment. Inside it talked about the cease fire brokered by Kerry and that there was strong push back from the pentagon that still sees Russia as a major foe. The article went on to say that unfortunately the day after the parties finalized the cease fire that the pentagon made an oopsie and bombed troops in Syria……things that make you go hmmm. Then from there it mentioned that evidence was surfacing that the Russian interference in the election was more troublesome than first believed and the Obama administration had to figure out a balance…..blah, blah. It also mentioned that Russia was pulling out of previous agreements and treaties.

    Reading that article in retrospect a few things popped out at me. The whole Russia, Russia, Russia thing seems to be coming mostly from the pentagon and intelligence community (deep state or military industrial complex). I don’t think it was an invention of team Obama, I think it was wielded against them and they decided to use it against Trump. I don’t know that getting rid of Obama holdovers will necessarily solve the problem because I think the problem has much deeper roots and didn’t originate with team Obama. I would be willing to bet there are plenty of GOPe in on the whole thing, in fact maybe more so than some of team Obama. This is clearly a multi-faceted front, the question is though why. I can think of a lot of answers, but which one is the right one??

Read this and let me know what you think because I don’t ever see a way to work with people who believe this. I think they need to be institutionalized and kept away from people like us. They do not see what is true they do not get reality. What do you think?

    This is where I stand:
    I believe that our 45th President, his Cabinet and administration, and the majority of Republicans in Congress are a real and active threat to me,and to the people I love.
    Some people are saying that we should give #45 a chance, that we should “work together” because he won the election and he is “everyone’s president.”
    This is my response:
    •I will not forget how badly he and so many others treated former President Barack Obama for 8 years.
    •I will not “work together” to privatize Medicare, cut Social Security and Medicaid.
    •I will not “work together” to build a wall.
    •I will not “work together” to persecute Muslims.
    •I will not “work together” to shut out refugees from other countries.
    •I will not “work together” to lower taxes on the 1% and increase taxes on the middle class and poor.
    •I will not “work together” to help Trump use the Presidency to line his pockets and those of his family and cronies.
    •I will not “work together” to weaken and demolish environmental protection.
    •I will not “work together” to sell American lands, especially National Parks, to companies which then despoil those lands.
    •I will not “work together” to enable the killing of whole species of animals just because they are predators, or inconvenient for a few, or because some people want to get their thrills killing them.
    •I will not “work together” to remove any persons civil rights.
    •I will not “work together” to alienate countries that have been our allies for as long as I have been alive.
    •I will not “work together” to slash funding for education and privatize our schools.
    •I will not “work together” to take basic assistance from people who are at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder.
    •I will not “work together” to get rid of common sense regulations on guns.
    •I will not “work together” to eliminate the minimum wage.
    •I will not “work together” to support so-called “Right To Work” laws, or undermine, weaken or destroy Unions in any way.
    •I will not “work together” to suppress scientific research, be it on climate change, fracking, or any other issue where a majority of scientists agree that Trump and his supporters are wrong on the facts.
    •I will not “work together” to criminalize abortion or restrict health care for women.
    •I will not “work together” to increase the number of nations that have nuclear weapons.
    •I will not “work together” to put even more “big money” into politics.
    •I will not “work together” to violate the Geneva Convention.
    •I will not “work together” to give the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party and white supremacists a seat at the table, or to normalize their hatred.
    •I will not “work together” to deny health care to people who need it.
    •I will not “work together” to deny medical coverage to people on the basis of a “pre-existing condition.”
    •I will not “work together” to increase voter suppression.
    •I will not “work together” to normalize tyranny.
    I will not “work together” to eliminate or reduce ethical oversight at any level of government.
    •I will not “work together” with anyone that thinks its OK to put a pipeline to transport oil on Sacred Ground for Native Americans.
    •I will not “work together” with any proposed legislation that threatens marriage equality for all.
    •I will not “work together” with anything or anyone that threatens the rights of LGBTQ individuals in any way.
    This is my line, and I am drawing it because “winning”, “being great again”, “rich” or even “beautiful” means nothing when others are sacrificed and our most important Democratic Institutions are being devalued, disrespected, attacked and undercut in the process by the holder of the highest office in our land.

      Further proof that liberalism is truly a mental disease.
      My response would be, “you don’t want to work together, fine, don’t need you. Now just get the hell out of the way and watch and be amazed as America prospers and is made great again without your help”
      By the way, you haven’t worked since you graduated college with a degree in 16 century French romantic poetry.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Prolly need ACW2. It won’t go the way they hope it will, though – they’ve never been much bothered by reality.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Ignore them for your own sanity. 🙂 There’s so much positive stuff out there to dwell on, we’ll be fine !

      • jenlyntx says:

        I hear you but a fair amount of Americans believe this crap. They are jury members, they vote, they sit on school boards, they own papers…..

        • Lulu says:

          When the money starts getting cut off in earnest they will start changing their minds. These are “followers” and they follow who has the money. It is their rationalization for staying in line. It is easier than thinking for themselves.

    Most of the people my relative knows are jews and/or people with higher education. It scares me that so many can be so utterly disconnected with even a scintilla of reality. What is even scarier is that 2 of them are people I will be caring for as they age….catch my drift 😦

    • Constance says:

      They may have aged to the point where they need help already. Sorry to point that out.

    A new take on an old topic …

  32. Dora says:

    You know what this means? It means they are talking about this in Germany. 🙂

  33. DeniseVB says:

    More juicy Biden Bits in the Daily Mail. VM was right, the affair stated about two years before Beau’s death. Also a close connection to the Obamas.

    I think I found the Worst Spelling Nazi in the Worrrrrrrrld ….. 😛

    • lyn says:

      KO is a crazy pussy.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Actually I put the blame on auto-correct.
      I can easily see that Trump ment, tapping, but tapp came out instead.
      ☠to the machines.

      • Lulu says:

        “Tapp” could mean some other form or means of surveillance that only the spooks and insiders know about. Since he has been flushing out leakers, warning them and scaring the shit out of them, I think this is a term or art or a surveillance program of some kind. This is just a wild assed guess but President Trump uses interesting language that “elites” don’t always understand mainly because they think they know everything which they don’t. It could be an NSA term or program or supercomputer or something. Just saying. And Sessions little smiles were just so telling like he knew that whoop-ass was about to be unleashed and he was amused.

        • taw46 says:

          • Lulu says:

            Holy shit. That is either a WAR cabinet or they are celebrating the pants pooping going on in DC. They flushed out Obama and made him make a non-denial denial.
            And I have this weird premonition that the FISA court order is either fake (they made one up and forged it) or lied YUGELY to get it. The Obama-ites didn’t expect to be flushed out and certainly not this early.

          • blowme0bama says:

            Yeah, that’s quite a gathering. Definitely not “just … guy[s] around the neighborhood”.

        • Constance says:

          I love the smug Sessions smiles which is really odd because I usually don’t like smug people.

          • Lulu says:

            His smirks are kind of smug in a way but he seems genuinely amused too. He is a very restrained and gentlemanly older man. I have known many southern men like him. I find it funny that he and Trump are great pals since they are so obviously opposites in every way except both being very intelligent and the same age. Of course they have both been singled out for abuse by the “elites” who hate them. They are a formidable pair.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Hmmm, maybe stand for Treason App, Tapp or T-App? 😉

  35. CiscoKid says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Secretary of Energy, Rick Perry.

    I’m sure he is driving the secret service crazy. 🙂

  38. Dora says:

    Love this one. 🙂

    • driguana says:

      We were going to go as it is just up the road from us but decided not to. Wish we had gone.

      • DeniseVB says:

        There was one about 5 miles from us, but it got so freakin’ cold, I bagged out. From what I’ve seen from most of the cities reporting on twitter, great turn outs all over. Trump people are such happy bats compared to the oppo’s Debbie Downers, who are always miserable and angry about something, everything 😉

  39. This all reminds me of the Mad Magazine comic Spy vs Spy…remember that?

    Thanks for all the feedback about tutoring/ study aids. We just got back from evaluation. We have a meeting next week to discuss her results. I know they are going to try and sell me something I don’t need or at least upsell me. I’ll do 100/so until school is out.
    I don’t care about her letter grade – it’s the grasp of the material that concerns me. Kid never does anything wrong so I don’t really need to be authoritative. Only power I have is her phone. Swear if I hear “in a minute” one more time. She is changing I strive to understand, but I’m a dude. My mom is her great grandmother. Straight A’s still in her other classes. Math is it. Last year she was in calcusolve and went to Duquesne to compete. Never a B and now I don’t know.
    I think it’s the teacher. She told them there is nothing wrong with a C. Sorry I believe my kid can do her very best if that is a C fine. She has taken voice lessons at The CLO. She knows she is not a singer. Fine move on. Everything including singing is math. Also the teacher has to teach lesson twice. Once in English and then again using Google translate in Spanish. Same 50 minutes per class. Do not tell me there is no effect
    Again I can’t tutor her. “I can’t do it” then tears. Little girl that sat on my lap on snow days using Google street view to meander through London, Paris, Prague now gets to frustrated with me trying to teach her. I know not what madness they have contrived to find least common denominator. I can teach her how to get there, but it has to be their way. Makes no sense to me. I always looked at math as telling a story. Anyhow I can’t do it, teach that is. Not going to let one bump in the road distract Her.
    Even though I am not her favorite person right now I think she knows that I care. I found the crumpled E in her book bag and had her engaged to stop it by 7pm. Next day evaluation. Even if the school is a ripoff she gets I care even if I don’t understand anything as she readily informs me.
    Worth 195 to break through. Schools are fucked up. I think they need to go back to 3 Rs. You would not believe the drama about ” fairness”. Ugh. My pup is being raised by a great gay uncle, her oxygen toting COPD great grandfather who post coma is yet again coaching softball and my mom who is an unmitigated bitch. When she was hatched we had a one eyed black lab. Gentle dog but she ate one eye out of every stuffed animal for real only one eye. Broken collarbone at 4. What to do with a wee one. I read her every word of every book in the Potter series aloud to her. Her mom(who is having her fourth child) was busy cutting herself and checking in for three hots and a cot. Her dad seems to prefer prison food.
    There was no way in hell I was going to allow her to be a victim. I used to blast Linda’s Poor Poor Pitiful Me when she’d whine. I bet a prog would want me arrested as, ouch, it opens with a suicide attempt. I had never listenned to the beginning. Oops.

      I am convinced Linda Rondstadt is Dora the Explorer and Gov Brown is Boots.

    • Somebody says:

      Like others mentioned there is the Khan academy which are videos. Math U See is a video based course, there are others. Hell there are video based courses for every subject. You just grade the papers and if you spring for the teacher’s book for yourself, the answers are in the back…..takes a couple of minutes to grade. You got this. Trust me whatever skill it is there are a dozens ways to present it. There are video games and board games that cover just about any and every skill. They don’t really teach geography anymore in school, at least not like they used to. There are many really good games to teach geography and cultures. Great way to engage with your kid and it’s educational. You can plan a project that will enhance her math skills or have cooking lessons…..yes there is math involved in cooking. Tim, you got this.

    If Ron Paul is right, this calls for an indictment!

    • lateblum says:

      It never happened, #FakeNews. Just ask the obama and OFO (obama for obama) cronies. Trump is paranoid, maybe schizophrenic and quite possibly dangerous for America. Go ahead. Ask them.
      Buncha sheeple.

  43. lateblum says:

    So, just now heard (on radio news) that obama denied “EVER” spying on or ordering spying on any US citizen. Is James Rosen not a US citizen? Are his parents not citizens? or are journalists (who question the president) not considered citizens?
    Really, it just gets crazier and crazier every day. Someone ought to put bronco out of his misery. Take him to Dubai and leave him there………

    Nice turnout for Trump in Virginia Beach. More photos on Scott’s timeline. Just to let you know that “mountain” behind those Trumpkins was a former pile of trash that the city turned into a park about 3 decades ago….hence….Mt. Trashmore 🙂 Trashmore 2 will open in a few years next to my neighborhood. Some lucky folks on the lake will have a “mountain view” too.
