The Democrats Colluded With The Russians

For the last year the media wing of the Democrat party has been working to convince people Donald Trump and his team colluded with the Russians in order to win the presidential election and this media wing has been assisted by Democrat politicians who continue to ignore the evidence that nothing happened. These Democrats are harping on the collusion story because they refuse to believe that the chosen one, Hillary Clinton, could have lost to Donald Trump. There must have been cheating for him to win.

The president did not collude with the Russians. His son had a meeting that included Russians that the media wing reports as having ties to the Kremlin but they are not, as far as anyone can tell, part of the Russian government. Trump went to the meeting because he was enticed with the prospect of information harmful to Hillary Clinton. Instead, the meeting only involved discussions about adoption of Russian children and how to remove the barriers to them.

The meeting lasted 20 minutes and did not involve collusion since the discussion was not about the election. As an aside, even if there had been collusion it would not have been illegal. Collusion is a crime in antitrust cases, not in politics. Hell, Hillary Clinton colluded with many foreign entities to get information on Donald Sr. Politicians have done this for a long time and even the drunken saint Ted Kennedy colluded with the Russians to try and hamper Ronald Reagan.

There have been calls of trying Trump Jr. for treason. We are not at war with Russia so he can’t have committed treason under the definition clearly spelled out in the Constitution (liberals do not read that).

There is increasing evidence that the Russian and the others who arranged the meeting with Jr. have ties to the Democrat party and that the meeting was a ruse to allow the Obama administration to spy on the campaign. Here is how it worked.

Loretta Lynch approved the entry into the US of a Russian who had been denied entry prior to Lynch’s intervention. The Russian, through contacts, sends word to Jr. that she has dirt on Hillary and he agrees to meet with her (and others). The meeting is used as a reason to get a FISA warrant to spy on the people at the meeting under the guise they are meeting with these foreign agents (those dastardly Russians). The warrant is issued and used to spy on the Trump campaign who were “caught up” in the Russian surveillance.

This is the kind of underhanded and sneaky thing a Democrat would do and there is increasing belief that the Obama administration manufactured the whole thing in order to justify spying.

So if that is the case the Democrats would have had to have worked, or colluded with if you will, with the Russians to arrange all of this.

Tell me again why we are wasting time on all this Trump/Russia nonsense…

Buffett Should Stick To What He Knows

I don’t know how many times Warren Buffett will have to be wrong before people stop listening to him. I know he is pretty good at investing and he has billions of dollars but he should probably stick to the things he knows in order to avoid looking like a fool. Buffett once quipped about the fact he paid a lower tax rate than his secretary despite making so much more. His income was from capital gains and hers was ordinary income. Both are taxed at different rates (capital gains are lower). The liberals ran with his statement to make the claim the rich do not pay their “fair share.”

Buffett was recently interviewed on PBS and he stated that America needs to go to a single payer health care system like the one in the UK. He stated America could afford it as a wealthy nation and that this is what will solve the health care issues.

To be fair, Buffett did state he was not an expert on health insurance. He probably should have ended there but he kept going and that made him the fool once again.

WOODRUFF: “Something that affects all businesses is the cost of health care in this country and you’ve been vocal about that. You argue right now, in fact, that the cost of paying for health care can affect a company even more than taxes.”
BUFFETT: “Well it does. I mean in terms of our competitiveness in the world; health care in 1960 was 5 percent of GDP. And there’s only a hundred cents to the dollar. So it’s gone from 5 percent to 17 percent. And it keeps going up. Corporate taxes have gone down from 4 percent to 2 percent. So corporate taxes are way less of a factor in American competitiveness than overall business than medical costs.”
WOODRUFF: “As we sit here today in Omaha, the Republicans in Congress are madly trying to figure out what to do to replace ObamaCare, the Affordable Care Act. Do you have a firm idea in your mind what ought to be done about ObamaCare? Everybody acknowledges there’s been some problems.”
BUFFETT: “I think that’s way outside of my circle of competence. But I would say this. You can’t have that five go to 17 and move on to 20 and 22 or 24 percent, because there are only a hundred cents in the dollar. Health care is gobbling up well over $3 trillion a year. It’s just about the same as federal, the federal budget, I mean it’s getting up there.”
WOODRUFF: “Are we now at the point where the country does need to think about some sort of single-payer system in some more or another?
BUFFETT: “With my limited knowledge, I think that probably is the best system. Because it is a system, we are such a rich country, in a sense we can afford to do it. But in almost every field of American business, it pays to bring down costs. There’s an awful lot of people involved in the medical — the whole just the way the ecosystem worked, there was no incentive to bring down costs.”
WOODRUFF: “It sounds like what you’re saying with a single payer system it’s easier to figure out a way to?”
BUFFETT: “More effective, I think.”

We can’t afford 22 or 24% of GDP going to health care but the government can afford to pay the bill? Now I know that Buffett thinks a single payer system will reduce costs but he is wrong. The government never does anything efficiently and it never does anything UNDER budget. One only needs to look at Medicare (>$79 Trillion in unfunded liabilities) to see how inefficient government is. That program costs billions upon billions more than it was ever estimated to cost and shortfalls are addressed by reducing the amount doctors are paid for the care they provide. And what assurance do taxpayers have that once government controls health care it won’t start adding to the program? Look at Social Security (>$15 Trillion in unfunded liabilities). The government established that socialist program many decades ago and has added to it along the way so that now we have untold numbers of people on disability or some other aspect that was added. We can’t afford to sustain that program because government mismanages it and keeps adding treats to the Christmas tree…

Any person, and Buffett should pay close attention here, who thinks single payer government run insurance is good should look closely at the Veteran’s Administration. That program is a single payer government run program that only involves a small portion of the population as a whole but it is rife with waste and abuse. It is a fiasco that costs so much there are talks of decreasing other military programs to move money to the VA. There are long lists and veterans wait for months, or longer, to be treated. Many die before they are ever seen. This is the kind of program the uninformed like Buffett want for all of us.

Buffett tells you we are a wealthy nation and can afford it. This flies in the face of reality because the government is 20 TRILLION dollars in debt and has unfunded liabilities that exceed 100 TRILLION dollars. We are not a wealthy nation. We are dead ass broke because of people like Buffett and their belief that government can provide, do it all and afford it.

Government can’t because the taxpayer can’t and that is the bottom line.

A few more notes. Buffett is old and will be dead before anything like he proposes would ever take place. He won’t have to deal with it and even if he lived his wealth would ensure he never had to deal with it (neither will his heirs). It is also important to note that in the interview Buffett claims that businesses can’t afford health care costs but government can [so basically, the burden should be shifted]. I have already shown government can’t afford it but the bigger picture here is that Buffett, a business man, is talking about how to make his (and all) businesses more profitable. He wants to do that by putting the burden of health insurance on the government thus clearing businesses of that debt and burden. Of course Buffett would claim government (read the taxpayers) can afford it. He wants people to embrace this socialist crap so his businesses will be more profitable.

Buffett admitted this was not his expertise. Perhaps he should have left it at that instead of offering his opinion on something he is woefully unprepared to address.

To recap, Buffett does not know what he is talking about, single payer is a terrible idea, increasing the GDP will lower the percent of GDP health care costs and opening the market for insurers will give people choices that will reduce costs without involving the government. The government cannot do anything on a budget.

Anyone who wants single payer should move to the UK and live there for the rest of their lives. They get what they want and the rest of us are not burdened by their stupidity.

Comey Raises More Issues

James Comey testified last week in an event that the media treated like the second coming. The networks preempted their regular programming to show Comey’s testimony because all of them thought he would drop a bombshell that would mean the end of the Trump presidency.

Comey did not drop any kind of bombshell and he left the media and their liberal puppet masters in distress. For months they have been anticipating a death blow to the Trump presidency and they knew for sure they had that blow in Comey. But as luck would have it, Comey confirmed what Trump stated about being told three times he was not under investigation and while Comey said he was concerned that Trump was trying to influence the investigation into General Flynn, his testimony told a different story.

Comey told us that Trump hoped that Flynn would be let go or the case would be dropped but Comey also told us that Trump told him that if anyone from his campaign were involved with the Russians it would be good to know. Rather than try to thwart the investigation it appears as if Trump wanted it done with as quickly as possible so he would not have a cloud hanging over his head.

That cloud could have been removed if Comey had been decent enough to inform the public that Donald Trump was not under investigation. That would have settled a lot of things but Comey did not do that.

As was stated in the Senate hearing, it appears the only thing not leaked was the truth about Donald Trump.

Comey also admitted he was the one who leaked his memos to the NYT through a surrogate. This was probably a criminal act since Comey took those notes after a meeting with the president, took them on a government issued computer in a government vehicle on his way to his government office. The notes he recorded were government property and Comey leaked them to eh media.

What else did Comey leak?

Comey also pointed his finger at former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the things he said indicate she was involved in illegal activity.

There are things here that can be easily cleared up.

Was there collusion with the Russians? Yes, Obama was recorded telling the Russians he would have more latitude after the election (to do things that might cost him reelection if they were done prior to Election Day). Was there an effort to impede an investigation? Yes, Loretta Lynch told Comey to call the Hillary INVESTIGATION a “matter” and this was done solely for optics. It was done to keep from casting an unfavorable light on Hillary over her illegal server and mishandling of classified information. Did Trump try to influence the outcome regarding Flynn? Comey said he took it that way and if that is the case then he must have taken Obama that way when he said Hillary should not be charged because she did not intend to do anything wrong. That was a public statement and Comey made sure she was not charged. If the liberals are going to say Trump tried to influence Comey they must then acknowledge that Obama DID influence Comey.

As for these memos and the information that the liberals waited on with baited breath, how do we know they really exist and if they do how do we know they were written when Comey said they were? He never took notes on all these other people who he had concerns about but he immediately started taking them with regard to Trump. I bet if there are notes he wrote them after he was fired and did so from memory. Without a third party to confirm it boils down to Trump’s word against Comey’s. Trump denies some of the substance of the notes and that means, barring another source, we will never really know what was said.

It is important to note that Trump said Comey told him he was not under investigation on three occasions and the media all panned that claim. During his Senate hearing Comey proved Trump was being truthful.

I think Comey put himself in a bit of a spot. He could well be charged with crimes and end up in real hot water.

The Russians tried to interfere with our elections as they have for decades (we do the same thing). However, Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians and had no contact with them regarding it.

Comey wanted a special prosecutor appointed and that is, according to him, why he leaked information. It appears that there is really no need for a special prosecutor. Perhaps it is time to realize this entire story is concocted by the people who lost the election and need someone to blame.

They lost and they are doing everything they can to keep Donald Trump from doing his job.

We need to make them pay for this.

Comey through the years

Special Counsel Could Be Nightmare For Trump’s Attackers

The liberal left, never Trumpers, and establishment Republicans have been attacking Donald Trump since he won the election. He was not supposed to win. Hillary Clinton was the next liberal to be anointed and she was so far up in the polls that she should have won so Trump must have pulled some shenanigans to win.

There has been a nonstop barrage of allegations that Trump Colluded with the Russians to win the election. The actual claims were that Russia interfered with the election and this is not in dispute. Here is a newsflash, Russia has been interfering in and trying to influence our elections for decades. The problem is that the Obama administration illegally gathered intelligence on some of the folks in the Trump campaign. What? It was not illegal and they were caught up in surveillance of the Russians? Yeah, you go ahead and stick to that. What really happened is the FBI solicited some former British spy to get dirt on Trump. The guy produced a really outrageous report that no one with two brain cells would give any credence to (and the guy himself said none of it was verified). Then Brennan used that report as the impetus to surveil the Russians in a fashion that would just happen to catch Trump campaign folks in the net.

A little questionable unmasking of those names, some manipulations and distributions to juuuusssst the right people and boom, there is a scandal totally comprised of BS and manufactured from phony information and information that was obtained illegally.

And yes, Obama was involved in this in some fashion.

The chorus has been never ending and it is now at a point where everything Trump does is questioned, equated to Watergate, deemed illegal and impeachable and spread out in the echo chamber of the Democrat Party and the media (but I repeat myself).

The liberals have manufactured stories and associations and then shamed people into recusing themselves from the investigations. Then the Democrats, all of whom were calling for FBI Director James Comey to be fired just eight short months ago, got all worked up that Donald Trump actually fired him.

Comey reacted to his firing by claiming that he wrote a memo about a meeting with Trump in which Trump said Mike Flynn was a good guy and hoped the investigation would end. This hit the proverbial wall with liberals and some establishment Republicans claiming that obstruction of justice might have occurred and that if it did it was impeachable. Interestingly, no one has seen the memo and the news reports it differently than the original context. I quoted above what was originally reported. The MSM, on the other hand (as well as the liberals), have reported that Trump told Comey to drop the investigation. It is being reported as more than it allegedly (no one has seen the memo) is. Top this off with the mindless reporting that Trump disclosed classified information to Russians he met with and the anti-Trump (anti America) crowd is in full tilt.

So now that everyone has been whipped into a frenzy because Donald Trump fired the guy they all wanted fired, said he hoped an investigation into a good guy would be ended and disclosed information he WAS ALLOWED TO DISCLOSE to Russians, the Department of Justice has decided to assign a Special Counsel and even that was reported incorrectly. He was appointed to investigate whether the Russians tried to influence the election (they did and we all know it) but it is reported as if he is appointed to investigate whether Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russians. That will certainly need to be looked at but remember what I stated, the MSM and the Democrats have made these two items the same in everyone’s minds.

Barack Obama’s administration was reported in The Washington Post in 2016 as considering sharing intelligence on ISIS with Russia. WAPO reported it as if it was a wonderful thing. Donald Trump did share the intelligence and the very same newspaper reported it as Trump disclosed classified information.

Democrats and their media wing (the MSM) are tickled pink that a Special Counsel has been appointed (The Wall Street Journal, not so much). They think this will lead to the impeachment of Trump. They are wrong and they really did not think this through. You see, the special counsel will have broad authority to investigate and that means he can sweep up all the Democrats who have been involved in wrongdoing.

There is no doubt that James Comey will be interviewed and while the Democrats think he will say Trump tried to influence the investigation proving obstruction of justice I highly doubt that will take place. James Comey is on the record, under oath, saying that he has not witnessed anyone trying to influence investigations. He gave this answer AFTER the alleged incident reported in the yet to be seen memo. Comey also never reported to the DOJ that Trump tried to influence the investigation, something he is obligated to do under the law. Given that he said he never witnessed such a thing and he did not report Trump one can only conclude that Trump broke no law and did not obstruct justice. Comey is too smart to claim that he felt Trump was trying to obstruct justice or he would be admitting to breaking the law (by not reporting it) and to lying under oath to the Senate. This is a nonstarter.

It is unlikely, barring any surprises, that the investigation will result in harm to Trump. It will harm the country because it will stifle the Trump agenda as spineless Republicans resist working on anything for a guy who has a special counsel investigation going on. Since many major law enforcement agencies and their leaders have already stated there is NO EVIDENCE of collusion between Trump and the Russians I fail to see how that evidence would suddenly appear. We already know they will discover the Russians tried to influence the election. Our country knows they did it and have done it in the past. Right now the Democrats are screaming about it and saying we can’t let it happen and express their righteous indignation but the Russians have done no more than our country, and most recently Democrats like Obama, has done.

Obama’s group that used to be Obama for America and is now Organizing for Action worked, under the direction of Barack Obama, to undermine and interfere in the Israeli election in an effort to oust Benjamin Netanyahu. What they did is no different than what the Russians did.

Recently, Barack Obama publicly injected himself into the French election by telling the people of France they should vote for Emmanuel Macron instead of Marine Le Pen. Now how is what he did any different than what the Russians did? I know he was public and they were sneaky about it but they did the same thing, injected themselves into the election of another country in order to affect the outcome. So excuse me if I ignore the Democrats and their selective outrage over the Russians trying to influence our election.

The special counsel will be looking at a lot of things and will have a lot of latitude to investigate. How many leakers will be identified? How many of the people who have been leaking secrets will be brought to justice? Will the ties of John Podesta and Hillary Clinton to the Russians be disclosed as part of the investigation? Will Susan Rice be prosecuted for unmasking the names of Americans who were targeted for illegal surveillance (see above)? Will the investigation look into why James Comey did not seek to charge Hillary Clinton for her crimes in setting up a home server and then using it to illegally transmit classified information? Will the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch (when Hillary was UNDER INVESTIGATION) be revisited?

There are many moving parts to all of this and the sweeping investigation could derail a lot of people including members of Congress. Wouldn’t it be a sweet bit of irony if the investigation by the special counsel the Democrats begged for caught a bunch of Democrats and Trump came out clean?

One good thing for the administration is that it can ignore questions about Russia and all the things that the left has been buzzing about by saying that they can’t discuss it because of the investigation. It will also take away the thing Democrats have been overwhelming the news with and take their message away.

They might have to actually get to work.

Speaking of which, if I were Donald Trump I would play hardnosed with these pukes in Congress. I would not allow them to recess in August and I would keep them in session with no other time off until they passed tax reform and a budget for fiscal year 2018.

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information on the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States. Article II, Section 3 US Constitution [emphasis mine]

I would say that not having a budget is an extraordinary occasion. If Congress does not like it then it should try doing its job…

The country is heading for another civil war. The left is inciting violence and is interfering with the duly elected president because it does not like the outcome of the last election and it is imposing its will on the people and causing harm. It will not take very long before the right starts fighting back and when we do we will eliminate the left. Just remember, the left started this but they will not be able to finish it and they will not like the outcome.

Or as I read on one of the feeds, Impeach Trump and there will be war.

Proceed at your own risk.

As an aside wouldn’t it be great to see that prick Schumer frog marched out of DC?

Look at him. That is what you get when they remove the foreskin.

Maybe the Democrats are making noise to distract the public from the good news. Can’t have people knowing Trump is good for the economy…

TDS Leaves WAPO Mindlessly Attacking President

…and his family

The Washington (com)Post is a far left wing newspaper that is in bed with the liberal establishment politicians and it serves as part of the media wing of the Democrat Party. The WAPO is more like a stenographer for the left.

For years the WAPO ignored the indiscretions and illegal actions of Democrat Presidents, explained them away or provided cover. The same paper never missed a beat when attacking Republicans. Nixon was a target of the WAPO and they got him.

It is not that Nixon did not deserve to go down (it depends on how you look at it) but is more about how the WAPO ignores the same or worse from Democrats like say, Bill Clinton who actually did go down, so to speak. Obama and Clinton have basically received a pass (and continue to receive it) from the WAPO while that publication continues to hammer away at Republicans.

The target this time is Donald Trump. The WAPO is all over him for anything he does and the paper even uses hacks to attack Trump’s daughter Ivanka. The hat trick is that the WAPO attacked Trump and included a Nixon reference while suspiciously ignoring Clinton. It appears in an article by Lawrence Tribe who is supposed to be a Constitutional Law Professor at Harvard Law School. Considering that is what they said about Obama I have no hope this guy is competent.

In any event, here is what Tribe had to say in his article detailing why Trump must be impeached:

No American president has ever been removed for such abuses, although Andrew Johnson was impeached and came within a single vote of being convicted by the Senate and removed, and Richard Nixon resigned to avoid that fate. Washington Post

Notice anything missing? Tribe did not mention that Slick Willy Clinton, the serial rapist and sexual predator, was also impeached. Now later in the piece Tribe mentions it but in the context that Nixon did really bad things and Clinton just had an embarrassing tryst and even those pesky Articles of Impeachment demonstrate that. Actually the articles are quite similar and it is important to note Clinton was not impeached for his sexcapade, he was impeached for lying under oath and obstructing justice.

Tribe suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome so much so that he wants Trump impeached for things he might do or could do or has allegedly done. Tribe is also full bore on the debunked collusion with the Russians probe. You see, there is no evidence, as stated by a number of officials including outgoing Obama appointees, that Trump colluded with the Russians. The professor is doing the same thing the democrat controlled media and the stenographers at the WAPO are doing. He is conflating the story that Russia tried to influence the election (no doubt about it as they have done for decades) and the unfounded allegation that Trump colluded with Russia to win in order to confuse the public and have them think that because Russia tried to influence it must have been working with Trump when that is not the case. Perception is reality for these people and if they can alter reality to harm a Republican president they will.

Trump fired James Comey, big deal. Democrats wanted him fired months ago and those bashing Trump for firing him openly admit that if Hillary had won and fired him they would be OK with it. These mindless morons, Tribe included, have become the mindless drones of the left and the hypocritical thought police who want punishment for what others were alleged to have done or because they might do something bad in the future.

Keep in mind the folks who want Trump impeached are the same who defended Bill Clinton, who ignored the lies of Hillary and Obama regarding Benghazi and who think Hillary did nothing wrong when she sent classified information through a private server. These people ignored scandal after scandal involving the Clintons and Obama but are now manufacturing scandals to take down Trump.

I just wonder how long it will be before Trump returns fire and takes out a whole lot of people.

Tribe is not the only deranged liberal to attack a Trump. Some deranged liberal chick named Christine Emba has written a hit piece about Ivanka Trump. The piece discusses how much hope people had for Ivanka and how, despite her father, was a hard working successful business woman who, though born of privilege, made her way in the world. Emba is disillusioned and now claims Ivanka is not hard working, does very little, hawks her products, is outclassed and outmatched in dealings with other women in other countries and wrote a terrible book that was shredded by other columnists. To Emba, Ivanka came in with so much hope but demonstrated she had no real business acumen and was only able to get by because she was born into money and used daddy’s name to make her way.

I would like for someone to find me the article Emba wrote describing Chelsea Clinton is similar fashion. The description Emba paints of Ivanka would be more fitting for Chelsea Clinton. She was not necessarily born into money but the family had a ton of it before she became an adult and that money helped her immensely. Clinton has had a number of jobs she was not qualified for just because her mommy and daddy are well connected. She was paid handsomely for doing little actual work and is not much of a business woman.

Ivanka is a successful person with her own business and her own direction. She is unfairly attacked because of the TDS caused by her father and the liberal hatred for him. Chelsea Clinton is loved by the left and any attack on her is met with a swift response. She continues to be honored on magazine covers and with awards that she did nothing to deserve. So please, show me where this hack Emba wrote something similar to the Ivanka hit piece about Chelsea.

Tribe and Emba suffer from TDS and they write for a publication that has a huge case of it. These people are working in concert to take down President Trump no matter whether they have an actual case or not. They are manufacturing the stories to impede him and they are abetted by the Obama holdovers left in government for the sole purpose of attacking Trump.

This will all come to a head and it will not be pretty. I just have two things to tell people like Tribe and Emba. If you and your libtard followers keep causing problems you will not like the response and there will be no crying from you or those who suffer the consequences.

Political violence has been increasingly common as left-wing organizations have whipped up mobs against Republicans and supporters of the president. The Daily Caller

And two, one day a Democrat will retake the White House and Democrats will control other branches of government. I don’t want to hear a word from either of you if violence starts and you are treated the same way you are treating Trump and the Americans who support him. Keep in mind, we have the people who actually know how to prosecute and win wars. So keep it up. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
