    Maybe next time she runs against Mitch McConnell, she will win. That would be so sweet.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Nancy primaried Lindsey Graham and she had a pretty good shot, but the state GOP added a couple more candidates to suck off her votes, so Miss Lindsey won, of course.

      • swanspirit says:

        That’s what happens when I post at some obscene hour of the morning, when I should be asleep. Thanks for the correction. I wanted her to win!

      • elliesmom says:

        Like when Marissa DeFranco got more than enough signatures to challenge Elizabeth Warren in 2012, but the delegates to the MA Democratic Convention refused her space on the ballot because they knew Marissa would sink Lizzie in a debate, the fake Indian stuff would all come out, and while the anointed one might still win the primary, she’d be a much weaker candidate against Scott Brown. Marissa is a lot younger than Lizzie, but so far having the audacity to try to challenge the pretIndian has kept her locked out by the local Dems. She’s an immigration and national security specialist

    I really don’t know who she is. Maybe I live in the wrong state. I wish her luck anyway.

    President Trump’s attorney is all upset about the glitch.

    Jay Sekulow is furious after the DOJ blamed a “glitch” for withholding ‘missing’ Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting docs from the ACLJ.
    How convenient. A glitch in the DOJ’s sophisticated software.

    I have a great deal of respect for Nancy Mace. I have firsthand knowledge of the kind of strength it takes to be one of the women who breaks down the doors to the boys’ club. There were two women in the class ahead of me. The one whose two older brothers were already at the school and who lived at home made it through the whole four years, but the other one gave up and left. The school decided it would only continue the “experiment” if they could put together a class of 20 women or more for the next year. Even so, we woke up to dead rats outside our doors, profs who either harassed or ignored us, and fellow students who thought the school had bought them “camp followers”. The campus priest had a lottery going on which coed would be pregnant first. On top of that, we had a reporter from the local city paper who stalked us. Nancy Mace went through worse and endured it under the watch of the national press. I think she’s going to be a force to be reckoned with in DC, and I wish her all the best.

      I do think it’s bigger than Watergate. MUCH bigger.

      • Lulu says:

        Oh much bigger. As to why spying on Trump? Butthurt and insult over Bronco’s tacky and trashy birth certificate. It embarrassed him. And he is a very spiteful little shit. And I think they spied on EVERYBODY. Because they could.

  8. mothy says:

    Prepared to be totally disappointed by #ReleasetheMemo. Can’t get my hopes up any more only to see no justice. Only positive I can see is that balloon juice slob was uncharacteristically mild in it’s scrant( screed + rant). Usually the writings are crazier.
    Sorry for being off topic.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Even if the memo is juicy enough to send Obama and Clinton to jail, media will ignore it and congress will sit on their hands and do nothing.

      • Lulu says:

        It has to be done in stages. It’s complicated and can’t just be Ta-DAA! as it would confuse everyone especially me. Like I said it is rolled out like a thriller movie. And the agony factor for the guilty parties. LOL. They don’t know what they don’t know on who knows and doesn’t know and what they will do to them and where can they hide or brazen it out or slit their wrists or move to a trailer in Idaho or will Soros pay my mortgage, will Hillary Arkancide me!

        And some of them are flipping or ratting each other out. Going to jail sounds cool and noble and shit for the cause until you have Trump and Sessions grinning at you. And that EO taking all your money, and pension, and kids college fund, and house, and your big, fat murderous brother in law wants a piece of your scalp when your kids have to live with him.

    Since we are in an open thread, I’ll be bragging a little: three weeks into my heavy-weights program and got my first “dayum” (or the French equivalent thereof) from one of the meatheads at the gym. Not because I’m bringing the sexy, but because I’m lifting a fuckton of weight for a laaaaa-dy.

    This. is. a. Harvard. PhD.

    • elliesmom says:

      The “scenario” is Trump is impeached, Pence is impeached, Ryan becomes POTUS. He chooses Hillary for VP and then resigns so “the will of the people” is realized, and Hillary becomes POTUS. If I had known they had such good drugs at Harvard, I might have applied there.

    • Lulu says:

      She could be president of some bureaucrats, academics, and no military and no economy. Who would pay for it shit-head Lessig? The closer the doom comes the crazier and more delusional the Obama/Hillary-heads get. I used to not want either she or Obama really punished. I just wanted them to go away and STFU. I don’t want them in a prison cell because we would have to pay for them. I want both of them so broke-ass and poverty stricken just like they wanted this entire country except for whoever would bribe them. Poor, shunned, out in the boonies for their won “protection”, bored, drunk or choomed, and rotting. And jail their serving acolytes who serve as reminders to never do this kind of criminal shit again.

      • Anthony says:

        True. Complete and perpetual irrelevance would be a punishment far worse than years in the slammer for both of them. Wandering the earth aimlessly, shouting at the top of their lungs for attention while nobody pays the slightest bit of attention to their ravings lol

      • taw46 says:

        I am of mixed feelings about punishment for Obama/Clinton. If there are no charges brought against them, some people will believe justice is really dead. Because they know an average citizen would face charges/serve time. But I also realize what the reaction would be from the left. Not just the crazy Marxists, but the ones that have adored Obama since the media put him on a pedestal in 2008. So, perhaps better just to expose it all, let everyone see the truth about them, ESPECIALLY Obama. And definitely poor and shunned as you say. But somebody needs to go to jail for this.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Losing their pensions and protection would be good enough for me.

          • jenlyntx says:

            NO. Not enough. You are I would go to jail. Children learn from SEEING not HEARING. Just say no to legalizing drugs (ESPECIALLY POT sorry Clown just look at what is going on in CO it is bad bad bad) and just so no to letting criminals off because they are rich and powerful. Take their MONEY and take their FREEDOM. They would certainly wish and do that to you.

    • Lulu says:

      Trump is rolling it out like a action-movie thriller. I think this is the suspense-dread phase. Notice the Dems freaked and the continuing resolution squeaked (sans DACA shit and its passionate PR virtue signalling) through the House while “squirrel” was going on with a “memo”. The emo-DACA protesters didn’t even make into the building and got bum-rushed into the street.

  14. mothy says:

    I am unplugging for a few days. Not healthy for me to endure this drip drip. Be well.

    • Lulu says:

      I get it. And do it all the time. Enjoy a stress free weekend!

    • taw46 says:

      Sometimes I quit reading for awhile, and luckily, we have lots of events going on down here to help me forget the craziness for a couple of days. That said, I don’t think I could unplug right now, so much going on, lol!

      • Lulu says:

        Me either. I think it is fun. But since I enjoy novels more than movies I am staying away from “broadcast” or MSM printed news. It is crap. With reading you can take breaks, digest or think about it, pick it back up instead of having it all SPIT at you at once.

        • taw46 says:

          Agree. I mostly read articles, will watch parts of FNC opinion shows at night. But if I check in for “news”, it will be FBN.

      • mothy says:

        I made it through breakfast. Oh well.

    • Anthony says:

      It’s so easy to get caught up in the (false and ratings generating) momentum that even our favorite broadcasters foist upon us. When I find myself furiously fact checking and searching for sources, I remember it’s a signal that I’m taking this shit far too seriously. If I survived 8 years of GWB and BHO, I’ll survived this too. Unplugging is akin to Indiana Jones jumping off a speeding locomotive seconds before it crashes.

      It’s also helpful to escape into an activity you enjoy. In my case, that would be photography. My Instagram account has been shamefully neglected over the past month. Time to bring my equipment to the park and capture some winter images.

      Hang in there

      • DeniseVB says:

        Did you see I tagged you on FB via NYCcurbed ? Women’s March up in your neck of the woods 🙂

        • Anthony says:

          I’ll check it out later lol. Fortunately I’ll be leaving for my out of town office long before it begins and returning hours after they swarm midtown. I hope it rains like hell all day.

    • Lulu says:

      There is something slightly off about her. She does a little “look over here not there!” misinformation. And when she got hired by the Murdochs to “comment” I knew she is sort of handled if you know what I mean.

      • Somebody says:

        Agree Lulu. She came out of nowhere suddenly with all these sources, interesting no? What of Herridge or Griffin, Sheryl Atkinson or many other reporters that have groomed sources for decades. Somehow none of those seasoned reporters get any scoops, but all these sources have Carter on speed dial???? Something is off indeed

    I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it was found out that Obama had been spying on Trump, since Trump questioned the birth certificate.

    • votermom says:

      I bet you’re right
      like a true commie, Obama would have an enemies list and keep tabs on all of them

      • cynic says:

        We know Hillary had an enemies list. I heard that one on Morning Joe, years ago. (Haven’t watched that show in over 1 1/2 yrs.) I saw yesterday that Joe & Mika won an award. Isn’t that a joke!

    • taw46 says:

      The sane people do want a combination of a wall and technology. I usually hear around 700 miles of wall, they realize there are areas where you cannot put up a wall. There is a reason for the insistence on that wall. Changes in administration can drop all that technology surveillance, but cannot knock down a wall. At least it helps stop some of the invasion and some of the drugs.

    • Somebody says:

      I got no issue with using both, but technology only is a non-starter with me. Technology cam be turned off or hacked and like all technology will quickly become obsolete.

    EXCLUSIVE: Six U.S Agencies Conspired to Illegally Wiretap Trump; British Intel Used as NSA Front to Spy on Campaign
    From the beginning it was a set up to find dirt on Trump campaign insiders and if possible to topple Donald Trump’s presidential aspirations.

    Before and after the 2016 election. And while this operation had many moving parts and alternating players, the mission to unseat Trump never changed. And it remains ongoing.

    Paul Manafort was wiretapped. Cater Page was wiretapped. Donald Trump Jr. was wiretapped. Jared Kushner was wiretapped. Gen. Michael Flynn was wiretapped. And likely there were others.

    Here is what we now know, per intelligence gleaned form federal law enforcement sources with insider knowledge of what amounts to a plot by U.S. intelligence agencies to secure back door and illegal wiretaps of President Trump’s associates:

    Six U.S. agencies created a stealth task force, spearhead by CIA’s Brennan, to run domestic surveillance on Trump associates and possibly Trump himself.
    To feign ignorance and to seemingly operate within U.S. laws, the agencies freelanced the wiretapping of Trump associates to the British spy agency GCHQ.
    The decision to insert GCHQ as a back door to eavesdrop was sparked by the denial of two FISA Court warrant applications filed by the FBI to seek wiretaps of Trump associates.
    GCHQ did not work from London or the UK. In fact the spy agency worked from NSA’s headquarters in Fort Meade, MD with direct NSA supervision and guidance to conduct sweeping surveillance on Trump associates.
    The illegal wiretaps were initiated months before the controversial Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
    The Justice Department and FBI set up the meeting at Trump Tower between Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner with controversial Russian officials to make Trump’s associates appear compromised.
    Following the Trump Tower sit down, GCHQ began digitally wiretapping Manafort, Trump Jr., and Kushner.
    After the concocted meeting by the Deep State, the British spy agency could officially justify wiretapping Trump associates as an intelligence front for NSA because the Russian lawyer at the meeting Natalia Veselnitskaya was considered an international security risk and prior to the June sit down was not even allowed entry into the United States or the UK, federal sources said.
    By using GCHQ, the NSA and its intelligence partners had carved out a loophole to wiretap Trump without a warrant. While it is illegal for U.S. agencies to monitor phones and emails of U.S. citizens inside the United States absent a warrant, it is not illegal for British intelligence to do so. Even if the GCHQ was tapping Trump on U.S. soil at Fort Meade.
    The wiretaps, secured through illicit scheming, have been used by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election, even though the evidence is considered “poisoned fruit.”
    Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who spearheaded the Trump Tower meeting with the Trump campaign trio, was previously barred from entering the United Sates due to her alleged connections to the Russian FSB (the modern replacement of the cold-war-era KGB).

    • taw46 says:

      “Yet mere days before the June meeting, Veselnitskaya was granted a rare visa to enter the United States from Preet Bharara, the then U.S. Attorney for the southern district of New York. Bharara could not be reached for comment and did not respond the a Twitter inquiry on the Russian’s visa by True Pundit.

      Federal law enforcement sources said Bharara was simply following the orders of Attorney General Lynch, who lobbied the State Department to issue the disavowed Russian a B1/B2 non-immigrant visa. This permitted Veselnitskaya entry into the United States for the sole purpose of entrapping Trump associates to use as fuel to commission wiretaps, federal sources said.”

    • taw46 says:

      I think some of this (or all) must be in that FISA abuse memo. #ReleaseTheMemo

    • John Denney says:

      The agencies didn’t conspire, but rather, political operatives within the agencies conspired.

      Admiral Rogers of the NSA discovered illicit activity within his organization and reported it up the chain of command in October of 2016. For his troubles, higher up political operatives demanded Obama fire him. Obama declined. After Candidate Trump became President-elect Trump, Rogers took the unprecedented action of going to Trump tower without his superior’s knowledge. The day after, Trump moved his transition team out of Trump tower. Easy to conclude that Rogers could say nothing to a candidate, but could inform a president-elect about national security issues. Like, “rogue elements in the intelligence community are spying on you.”

    Denise something is wrong with the format on my phone it keeps shrinking. I know we had that issue before and Lola or VM fixed it I believe, something on the backside.

    • Anthony says:

      It’s the size of the image. Facebook posts are larger than most images. Does that on my phone too but when I open the post it all falls in line.

  22. Anthony says:

    The Democrats are saying that the “Shithole” remarks made by Trump are the reason they’re willing to stop funding the government. The problem with that argument is everybody in the room with the exception of Durban says he never said it. But, they’re backing the odd man out.

    The truth is they want DACA to be funded, even though it doesn’t expire until March 9, per the EO that The Changeling signed into law to avoid having Congress debate it. Most of us can figure out that if you keep the government funded, there’s more than enough time for a debate and a workable solution, but the Dems believe they’ll have less political leverage if they don’t shut down the government now.

    Bottom line – it’s about political leverage. Nothing to do with the will of the people, just political leverage. But you knew that already…

    • Somebody says:

      Yep and with any luck they will end up with egg on their faces. They are putting illegals interest ahead of citizens. The R’s need to bring their A game and hang that turd around the D’s necks. It won’t be easy because the MSM will be in defense mode for the D’s.

      Les Deplorables need to step up and own social media. ….let the meme war commence!

      A short term shut down won’t be felt too much, but I’m hearing rumblings the D’s want to drag this out to the March 9th deadline or close. A prolonged shut down will begin an erosion unseen at first but the longer it goes on the more it will snowball. Many of the so called non-essential jobs are essential but not critical if that makes sense. IOW if they aren’t on the job a week or two no big deal, but many of those jobs support the “essential” or critical jobs and their absence for an extended period will begin to impact the more critical positions.

      • Anthony says:

        DACA is really about indentured slavery. Illegals earn about $3 per hour working here as opposed to $3 per day in their own country. Sweet deal for them AND the gov owned farms they work on. DACA gives them access to welfare benefits, free education, housing, food, spending money. The most important perk is a State ID (I thought that was racist…) with which they can obtain a valid US drivers license and also register to vote. I’ll say it again: REGISTER. TO. VOTE.

        Who gets the vote? The Democrats. And also the GOPe, who along with the Democrats, think what they’re told to think and pass legislation they’re told to pass by their DONORS and LOBBYISTS.

        In short, 5 families of donors who hire lobbyists to do their bidding control our government.

    It is a feat so great that President Barack Obama was unable to accomplish it.
    President George W. Bush did better than his republican predecessors, but still fell a bit short.
    Even President Bill Clinton came under fire from women’s organizations for his shortcomings on delivering a cabinet that “looks like America.”
    The unattainable feat?
    Hiring an astounding number of women for senior-level positions in the White House.
    Luckily for women everywhere, in 2018 it has finally been accomplished.
