    The time has come,” Walrus said,

    Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
    Of cabbages–and kings–

      I hope they find their Spines. 😀

    • Constance says:

      Flipping through the channels this morning and the NBC talking heads looked stunned. They seem to have stopped blabbering their excuse and outrage narrative and are acting afraid of a real investigation. Maybe they are just waiting for a Democrat “narrative of the day” update.

    Its like they’ve been lying their ass off and are now forced to admit it.

    The NY Times; the Washington Post. Wow! In the words of Steve and Edie – “This Could be the Start of Something Big”.


    Leaks and unnamed sources fuel media’s plan to destroy Trump
    By Michael Goodwin

    To start with, the unprecedented alliance against him clearly includes remnants of the Obama administration, and probably the former president himself. The recent New York Times report that Obama and his team dropped intelligence findings like bread crumbs so they would get wide readership and to prevent the Trump administration from burying them reveals an attempt to undermine if not subvert a legally elected president.

    Aldous Huxley on silencing Charles Murray

    “I believe that the world’s rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience.” Aldous Huxley

    • CiscoKid says:

      But, but, their sooo much smarter than us.
      Still covering Obamas ass.

    • Ann says:

      Oh come on, that’s not real…. and if it is, I am lmao.

      • DeniseVB says:

        It’s sad we can’t tell anymore between truth and truthiness. 😀 MSM has brought this on themselves.

      • Jadzia says:

        I have conversations like that with opposing counsel every goddamned week.

        • blowme0bama says:

          Lawyering is fun, isn’t it?

          • Jadzia says:

            Only the parts that don’t involve actually interacting with other lawyers, ha ha. (Other than my colleagues, who are awesome.)

          • blowme0bama says:

            I always am puzzled by the type who like to spend week long continuing education “vacations” at bar conventions. I get enough of being around these assholes every day, I sure as hell don’t want to spend my free time with them.

          • Jadzia says:

            I cannot imagine paying money to spend time with other lawyers. Cross my palm with silver, or I’m skipping it.

      • blowme0bama says:

        No, its not real, but during the campaign, MSM “fact checkers” were putting crap out equally as damning. It was almost as if a Trump mole was on their staff.

    • Lulu says:

      He MEANT for it to be secret because he used his “inside voice”. His problem was that the Russians don’t pay kickbacks like the Iranians do. He was probably shopping for bids.

    I’ve watched that BasedStickMan video a couple of times because I thought I saw something odd.
    At the very beginning there’s a white guy yelling at BSM “your a white man”.
    Maybe he’s a male version of Rachel Dozell.

    Why won’t credit card people leave me alone. They keep offering me money. I want to accept all offers and go to Vegas

    • CiscoKid says:

      I remember getting credit card solicitations every week.
      I’m not sure if it was Visa or American Express, but the cards they offered started as basic card. Then a couple of weeks later, I could get a Gold Card.
      Finally they offered a Platinum card.
      Never took a card, but miraculously I worked my way up to a Platinum card.

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Poor Shaun King, so stupid.

  15. mothy67 says:

    question for lawyers
    is there any such thing as hate speech under American law first amendment seems pretty clear. I can be an asshole. I keep reading about hate speech.. that is not a thing. am I wrong? I know Skokie from an ethics class in 1987. has law changed? I have no idea what hate speech could mean. can I say you are fat?

    • 49erDweet says:

      Truth is usually an absolute defense.

    • blowme0bama says:

      No. There are limits. I *think* “fighting words” are still capable of being prohibited, being language which would naturally provoke imminent violent outrage – and the statutes which treat that are limited to face to face type situations, but “offensive to some people” or “offensive to a lot of people” or “offensive to everyone” language is protected.

    The Sierra hillsie-willsie behind Myiq had a lot more white stuff yesterday. So much water weight on the ground might be holding back our normal allotment of earthquakes.

    I just tried Siggi’s 4% milkfat yogurt coz it was on sale and I have a rumbly tummy today.

    I like it – not very sweet at all.

  18. Dora says:

    I can’t believe this! I mean, I believe it from the NY Times, but I can’t believe they are actually promoting this idea! If that makes any sense at all.


    Pause This Presidency!

    The American people must immediately demand a cessation of all consequential actions by this “president” until we can be assured that Russian efforts to hack our election, in a way that was clearly meant to help him and damage his opponent, did not also include collusion with or coverup by anyone involved in the Trump campaign and now administration.

  19. Somebody says:

    This is an interesting run down of the possible issues Obama and his lackeys face if they in fact did what Trump said they did.

    • Lulu says:

      They exposed themselves to huge prison sentences in their madness and lunacy to spread secret information obtained illegally that proves nada. It is one of the dumbest things ever. They broke laws, serious laws, to obtain and spread information to damage a political rival based on fake or innocent business contacts that isn’t even unethical much less “criminal”. And all this “Comey said” shit? He hasn’t said jack squat in public yet so I think it is another Trump White House rabbit hole the ever gullible and trying to be useful for Obama, Inc has gone down.

      • Somebody says:

        Isn’t that the truth about Comey. If he has something to say, come out and say it. He’s never had a problem speaking his mind in the past.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Very good article.
      Damn good summary of the issues.

    • AFVet says:

      That is an excellent find.
      Makes perfect sense to me.
      Now all we have to do is sit back and watch it all unfold.
      Buy popcorn futures. 🙂

  20. votermom says:

    Does it matter if Obama ordered the wiretaps? Nixon didn’t order Watergate either.

    • Lulu says:

      No. His “legacy” will be ruined if all his flunkies land in prison. That is not successful leadership. And Loretta’s whiny “blood” screed sounds like she is designated goat, knows it and wants the serfs to come out and riot to break her out of jail or something. She had that fake concerned, “oh shit I’m the goat” look on her stupid face. She was a late comer to the Obama cartel as she was a previous Clinton appointee so she got the black bean. AND she is female.

      • AFVet says:

        Obama’s ‘legacy’ also includes filling his administration with nefarious people.
        She is just one more example.

    • Constance says:

      I like that line and I’m going to steal it and start dropping it on the Dems I know.

  21. mothy67 says:

    I wish my shopping cart knew how to write. she has seen a lot. yesterday I was tugging her up the steps from grocers. yes. I never learn I had water. young couple asked if I needed help. I declined but I wanted to make a point with my thank you. of course she was a social worker with an msw. I had 1.75 litres of cheap vodka and beau went to caribou to buy mixers. she voted for Hillary because she felt she had to. her job everyday is trying to make sense of a mess. she welcomes dr carson. what is is not working. they were maybe late 20s. I asked them about pussygate. point blank I said have you ever said cunt. they both had. she allowed thatvTrump was a roller coaster but an msw gubment employee drinking house vodka with a middle aged fag she met on the stairs discussing common law

    • CiscoKid says:

      Some of the best and not so best argument’s have been over a water glass or two of cheap vodka, although I prefer the term inexpensive vodka.
      Between 3 or 4 people a 1.75 liter doesn’t last long.
      I use the term argument in the courtroom sense, like, “your honor, the defense would argue that the prosecution is full of 💩. Just trying to funny it up, but you understand what I mean.

  22. Dora says:

    These dems can drive a person nuts. I don’t know how the president is dealing with them. He must have patience.


    Senate Dem Will Try To Block Confirmation Of Jeff Sessions’ Deputy

    “I’ll use every possible tool to block DOJ Deputy AG nominee unless he commits to appoint independent special prosecutor,” Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal said on Twitter on Sunday.

    • Lulu says:

      They say that with every single one. Sessions needs to tell McConnell to get it over with or Elaine is going to be left out of cabinet meetings.

    • CiscoKid says:

      The desperation is getting more obvious.
      I think that the corruption in DC is so deep that those that are involved are afraid of being discovered by a Sessions DOJ.
      Not all, but I’d say many.

    • Constance says:

      Trump doesn’t need patience to deal with Dems, he needs implied blackmail. He needs to turn the screws on them each time they act out. It is the only way to deal with this sort of person. You need to make them so miserable everytime they act out that they go away. You have to create aversion to interacting with you.

    • SHV says:

      That would be Rod Rosenstein, the current US Attorney for the District of Maryland; his nomination has been blocked for almost 2 months. He was also nominated by Bush in 2000 to be a Federal Judge and that appointment was blocked by the Dems.
      Sounds like the right person to go after Obama thugs.

    • AFVet says:

      Remember Blumenthal was the asshole that lied about serving combat duty in Nam when he never set foot in country.
      He needs his ass kicked out of congress.

    • Somebody says:

      Memo to Blumenthal, your vote doesn’t matter. Wish in one hand and shit in the other buddy, oh and you can thank Harry Reid. Schadenfraude!

  24. DeniseVB says:

    This is from 2014, but I just found it. Good read, because the reasons she’s no longer a leftist are so much worse in 2017.

    • CiscoKid says:

      And the left haven’t changed one bit.
      Hopefully more will follow her.

    • taw46 says:

      Could have been written yesterday. Basic reasons are still there. The left is evil and I am sorry it took me so long to see that. That is the one good outcome of 2008, it began to open eyes.

  25. Dora says:

    Juicy stuff – if true.


    More EXCLUSIVE Information From DHS Insider!

    As Promised By Our DHS Insider – FBI ANON Resurfaces!

  26. taw46 says:

  27. Lulu says:

    The new EO orders State to stop issuing visas for anything (especially refugees) in the six countries. A court will not be able to order the SOS to start issuing visas for non-citizens. They got ZERO jurisdiction. This shuts down the refugee “money racket” since almost all of them come from the six countries stated. In 120 days safe zones for refugees may be established and they can stay there, the refugee industry can go there and do good works which they won’t because there is no money in it.

  28. AFVet says:

    Cool cat.

  29. Dora says:

    This is awful. Just awful. Whatever happened to all those “California Girls” the Beach Boys used to sing about?


    Shock Video Exposes Tent City Crisis In Failing California

    Homeless epidemic exploding as globalists cater to illegals, “refugees”

  30. That’s not a thong.

  31. DeniseVB says:

    LOL !

  32. DeniseVB says:

    Of course he has.

    • CiscoKid says:

      It’s not watered down, it’s even stronger and better.

      President Donald Trump’s executive order halting the importation of refugees from six terror-exporting countries also includes a section requiring the government to publicly release information on crimes committed by foreign nationals, including honor killings of women.

  33. CiscoKid says:

    Oh my.
    Head’s gonna be ‘sploding
    President Donald Trump’s executive order halting the importation of refugees from six terror-exporting countries also includes a section requiring the government to publicly release information on crimes committed by foreign nationals, including honor killings of women.
    It’s about f’kng time.

  34. taw46 says:

    I am so glad he did this. It pissed me off to hear “journalists” calling him a right wing conspirator who made up things when he READ quotes from the NYT and WaPo.

    “I simply put together the stories that YOUR profession reported, on the public record. Do you deny there were two FISA applications? Do you deny the first was turned down? Do you deny the second was approved? It’s called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. It is about surveillance. The fact that we cannot discern all the details because of the secrecy, except for what the media have revealed and selective leaks by the government, should cause you to want to know more, not to trash those who point it out.”

    • taw46 says:

      Mark is going after the lying reporters on Twitter today. He will be on Hannity show tonight.

  35. DeniseVB says:

    LOL, Paul Joseph Watson is super cute in this vid discussing Trump Derangement Syndrome.

  36. Dora says:

    Sad news.

    Anyone who watches TCM will know who he is.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Not surprised. It was obvious on his last couple of appearances that his health was fading. He had a true affection for the industry. Also a great deal of respect for its history.I have noticed many of the younger & guest hosts have a tendency to pontificate so I hit the mute button. I am trying to recall the movie -he had a guest co-host that went on and one about some horrid slight to women in the film – and you could see he was baffled because he had no clue how anyone could read that into the classic film. But then realized his guest had no understanding of the era in which the film was made not the era is was portraying. I recall understanding his bafflement because you really had to view the films upside-down and in reverse while squinting to find anything vaguely anti women.

    • taw46 says:

      It is sad. Where will they find another like him with such love of film and its history?

  38. elliesmom says:

    I’ve been hearing a lot of schools are closing for the day w/o women temper tantrum. Teachers are paid for 185 days of work. Contrary to popular belief, they don’t get paid vacations. You can ask to have your pay spread out over 12 months, but if you don’t, you get your last paycheck the last week of school, and you don’t get another one until school is in session in the fall. The schools that are closing will have to add a day at the end of the year to make up the day so teachers lose nothing. They just get the day off shifted. But a lot of parents are going to have to take the day off to take care of their kids- many of them w/o pay.
