    Actually, that one is considered pretty clearly anti-Semitic by a lot of people. It features “Rothschilds” and “Bilderberg” as part of the swampy conspiracy. At least it doesn’t quote the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

  2. DandyTIger says:

    New rule: if you were so ignorant as to use the word “treason” or “traitor” against Trump about the Trump-Putin Summit, you should not be allowed to vote or to publicly participate in political discussions for the next year. We’ll call it a stupidity time out.

      Dan Bongino linked to the GoFundMe page too. A “stroke” at 42 ? I guess it’s possible, but Fed agents are required to undergo strict PE exams twice a year. How was this missed?

      • blowme0bama says:

        Usually, when someone dies of a heart attack or stroke, my mind immediately goes to drug use, but I’d imagine a SS agent is subject to drug tests (?).

        • blowme0bama says:

          Should have added – at such a young age.

          • DeniseVB says:

            A lot of stress on that job, but all the USSS books I’ve read, no one stroked out. The PE’s and daily workouts pretty much rule out sudden deaths. After reading Dan Bongino and Gary Byrne’s books, they should be dropping like flies 😉 R.I.P. and prayers up for the Remagen family, yes, such a young age.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Yeah, I doubt use of anything traceable. They do tend to crowd “party time” into short bits so anything else is possible.

      • SHV says:

        “A “stroke” at 42 ?”
        My WAG, at age 42, is ruptured cerebral aneurysm. Distant second is Paradoxical Cerebral Embolus. (Blood clot from lots of air travel)

      • votermom says:

        maybe all the air travel caused a clot that travelled to the brain?

    Oh FFS, not sure of this link, but if it’s true, FFS California…..

    I don’t know how Sarah does it, these reporters get worse every day. They don’t even try to hide their hatred of the President. Not trying to get information, just using their questions to insult him.

    • Cisco says:

      Yea, it’s becoming hard to watch.
      But I do enjoy April Ryan’s dumb question of the day.
      Voter suppression was today’s.
      California is going to let illegal’s vote, is April that clueless as to what’s going on?
      Don’t sound like suppression to me.
      More like voter fraud.

    One of the many many reasons the morale of the Chicago PD is so low as to be nonexistent.
    The picture on the bottom is how the District commander of the 4th District showed up at the scene of last weeks police involved shooting.
    Another merit hack appointee.

    • Cisco says:

      Forgot the picture from the police video that shows the “unarmed” rocket scientist that the community sez’ he didn’t no gun, he doesn’t even one.

      • DeniseVB says:

        This is why, kids, when Officer Friendly tells you to put your hands up, YOU PUT YOUR FREAKING HANDS UP! Then there’s no question you want to blow his head off. Do you understand?

      OMG there is a Wikipedia battle going down on Paul Erickson’s page. He’s named in the above article as a contact of Butina. Article says they attended DJT’s inauguration together. I had never heard of him so I looked him up…..his Wikipedia page changed 3 times in 5 minutes.

    Go Jesse!

  10. Cisco says:

    😊I know, I’m bad for even suggesting, but Lady Karma you out do yourself now and the.😊
    “An Uptown man who has been awaiting trial for multiple weapons cases in the North Side neighborhood has died in rural Calaveras County, California, after he jumped from a moving SUV that had been used in the robbery of a large marijuana shipment, according to media reports.”

    Donter Essex, 29, was free on bond while awaiting trial in Chicago for two separate gun charges in Uptown. Now, it looks like he took his criminal show on the road while Cook County’s wheels of justice turned.”

    • Lulu says:

      It is disturbing how many criminals are re-locating (or just on extended visits) to CA to pursue their avocation of crime. It is a like a gold rush for criminals. A bunch of wanted types from Texas get offed in CA it seems all the time.

    I’m taking a sick day today.

  12. SHV says:

    “I’ve been staying up all night (can’t go to sleep),”
    Have you tried Melatonin? My usual thought is that vitamins, supplements, organic, etc. are scams, however, the MIL has been complaining about not sleeping for 2-3 years, feeling tired, etc. Wife suggested that she try Melatonin, figuring at least a placebo effect might help. Now sleeps 8 hours, feels great, back to running 30 miles a week and enthusiastic about training for races again. She is 77. It may all be psychological but I don’t have to hear about sleeping poorly.

    • Lulu says:

      I’ll ask my doctor about it. I’m not allowed to take anything without clearing it through him including vitamins. I take NINE meds! I go through cycles of weirdness then it goes away. Usually my sound machine and reading put me to sleep but for some reason it isn’t right now. I suspect the heat or lengthy amount of sunlight is throwing me off cycle.

      • DeniseVB says:

        The heat ? I have to have the room at 70 with ceiling fan blasting or I’m miserable.

      • blowme0bama says:

        OMG, I have got the cure for insomnia. Go to amazon and order a student case book on Secured Transactions – Article 9. I was never able to complete more than a page and a half before I fell asleep.

        • Lulu says:

          I have a book on Charlemagne that does that usually. I’ll have to look for it for the joy of the 1910 or so stilted and pompous prose. Oh lord it is boring.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I started using an eye mask to help block light and it also usually helps my eyes settle which in turn helps my mind relax.

        Mom’s doctor permitted both she and one of my aunts to use melatonin because they were already on several meds each. Sundowners had their clocks off and in turn mine. It did most nights. Doing something light like reading or drawing helps. It does not work for everyone but if your doc says ok, give it a try.

        • Lulu says:

          Usually my clock goes off kilter when I’m home alone and not on a strict schedule. But I really do think it is the intensity of the light right now. I love light and keep drapes and shades up in the summer. I think I will try adding the eyemask to my beddie-time routine. Thanks. I did sleep from 3-5 so I’m going to tough it out today to try to sleep tonight.

    • Lulu says:

      She’s so dumb she doesn’t even know she is crossing the Dem machine. She was supposed to fall in line but she didn’t know she was supposed to do so. I find her endearingly idiotic.

  13. DeniseVB says:

    True story…..

    • taw46 says:

      I decided to spare everyone here, so I didn’t post the video I saw of Obama dancing in Africa (he can’t dance worth a shit). Even worse than that was a USA Today article raving about how toned and fit Michelle was at the Beyoncé concert. And then I saw the photo, that white outfit was short shorts. 🤢

    • Island Girl says:

      I love that they no longer rule us, every single day. 💕

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Who needs a feel good story? (dabbing eyes)

  15. DeniseVB says:

    Nice surprise, the first part of this video is Kirsten Gillibrand’s GOPchallenger (didn’t catch her name, but she’s awesome) then Brandon Straka’s interview on OAN.

  16. Cisco says:

    Pretty soon in Chicago, you won’t need to go to work.
    Read and weep.
    This will bring in the votes, that’s for sure.
    A snippet.
    “Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend — no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported.”

    It is 107 outside. That is way too fucking hot for fat people.

    • swanspirit says:

      Please take extra precautions while this heat wave lasts!!! That is too hot for anyone.

    • Somebody says:

      Hope your A/C keeps running strong! That kind of heat is dangerous.

      • Somebody says:

        Is your mom’s A/C running strong? The elderly often don’t notice until the situation is dangerous. My MIL sat in a sweltering house once. She didn’t notice the A/C was kaput until she was too weak to get out of bed. We hadn’t heard from her in a day or so and she wasn’t answering her phone 😮 So I went over to check on her. Thank God I did. She was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks.

    • Anthony says:

      That’s too hot for anyone. Period. Last week we had that kind of heat here in NYC. Stay inside til the sun sets, keep the AC on. I keep mine at 73 and use the energy saver setting. Keeps things comfortable and dry and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Feel better!

    • Anthony says:

      Bingo! Brennan hatched Crossfire Hurricane to take down Trump. Now the Trump Tornado is about to strike back. Sad thing is that our intel community has many fine people who have been tainted by that commie bastard. It could take years to restore confidence.

    Slow AP …

  24. Anthony says:

    Anyone catch Swalwell on Tucker tonight? I wanted to slap the stupid right out of him.

  25. lyn says:

    I agree. The hate on Facebook is crazy.

    • Lulu says:

      Remember that these mobs on social media are the “good” people. Let that sink in. They rationalize their “goodness” with all kinds of self delusion.

      • lyn says:

        That’s so true. That “Are Trump supporters bad people” video was exactly how these wretched souls think. Their hate is good. They are nut jobs.

  26. Dora says:

    I don’t know when this was taken. I found it on CTH and it supposedly has the women swooning. 🙂

  28. lyn says:

    It’s not treason when Hillary said this?

    • lyn says:

      Statements accusing Trump of treason and calling for the military to overthrow him are terrifying. They demonstrate that Trump’s opponents are so obsessed with delegitimizing his presidency, and presumably with impeaching him that they are willing to risk a world war to achieve their domestic political goals.

      When we consider the hysteria of Trump’s critics on the one hand, and Trump’s extraordinary accomplishments in Helsinki on the other, we need to be thankful that Trump was willing as he said, “to take a political risk in pursuit of peace,” rather than “risk peace in pursuit of politics.” The U.S. and the world benefited greatly from his courage.

    Did The FBI Ignore Evidence That A ‘Foreign Entity’ Hacked Clinton’s Emails?

    Email Scandal: Last week we learned that a “foreign entity” may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton’s emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information. And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its “investigation.” The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets.

  33. Dora says:

    It wouldn’t shock me at all considering how the left is so out of control.

    WHOA: Disgraced FBI Official Peter Strzok Grew Up In Iran & His Father Supported The 1979 Iranian Revolution

    The Deep State rabbit hole just got a little deeper. Did you know anti-Trump FBI official Peter Strzok grew up in Iran and Saudi Arabia? Strzok’s father, Peter Strzok Sr. was in Iran when Muslim hardliners stormed the U.S. embassy, took hostages, and overthrew the U.S. friendly government.
    Since that time Iran has been a “death to America” fixture in the Middle East.

    Strzok Sr. was supportive of the Iranian revolution. Fast forward several decades later and you want to know who headed the Obama-era outreach to Iran where hundreds of millions of dollars were given to the radical Islamic regime and a nuclear green light granted? None other than Peter Strzok.

    What the hell is going on here?

  35. taw46 says:

    I saw this last night. For 3-4 yrs, FBI knew and did nothing. Why?

    • Lulu says:

      It was to be a set-up to discredit the gun groups. They probably invtied her in and got paid to do it to boot. Getting rid of the Second Amendment is one the most important goals. That they had to yank her now shows how pathetic and weak they are with Trump. This type of crap used to result in a grab, quick trip to the airport with a ticket back to Russia and a stern warning “never come back”.

      • taw46 says:

        Byron York was on Tucker’s show last night. So far, she has only been charged with violating FARA. As both he and Tucker pointed out, there are thousands of people in DC who lobby for foreign governments, but never register. Bullshit at this point. (Oh, and they never charged Tony Podesta for doing the same thing, not registering. But they did charge Manafort).

    • Lulu says:

      “Social justice is a surveillance culture, a snitch culture. The constant vigilance on the part of my colleagues and friends did me in. That’s why I’m delivering sushi and pizza.”

      This all is their reaction to losing not just power literally but influence. I keep talking about “preference cascades” which is the only social study words that come close to describing an entire society not waking up so much because it has been aware something was deeply wrong as finally pushing back. The trigger can be anything (I think Bronco’s migrant hordes did it). It is also the swing of the pendulum and self-correction of standards and mores (the essential or characteristic customs and conventions of a community) that have been forced off track. Media, popular culture, economic titans all are losing influence and thus fighting back with increasingly outrageous and disgusting language and social tactics because they are becoming powerless and ignored. All they can do is “serveil” Trump and scream lunacy and increasingly bat-shit crazy lies and weirdness. They act like dumped crazy girlfriends (or boyfriends) who can’t move on. They have been rejected. En masse. So they double down.
