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…

Is Pelosi On Drugs Or Naturally Confused?

Or does she think we are stupid?

Nancy Pelosi is working hard to pass the health care takeover that Obama wants even though it looks like she is currently a few votes shy of the needed number of Democrats to pass it. The House and Senate have been working on this health care stuff for about a year and both chambers have a bill. They could have passed anything they wanted without Republican support because they had large enough majorities in both chambers.

The Democrats could not agree on the legislation and it is they who are at fault for this not passing. If it is so wonderful that they are going to ram it through now whether we like it or not then it was just as wonderful when they had enough votes to get it done on their own. They did not get it done because some of their own did not like it.

This is important because the Democrats keep blaming Republicans for obstructing. Republicans could not obstruct, they could only delay the inevitable, as long as all the Democrats were on the same sheet of music. They were not.

Plus, they know that if they are the only party to vote for it then they own it. If it turns out good then they will look like heroes and if it turns out bad it will be entirely their fault. They must know that it is not as wonderful as they say because they do not want sole ownership of it.

But what about Pelosi and her drug problem? She must be on drugs. Read this portion of a transcript from an interview she had this weekend with Candy Crowley of CNN:

CROWLEY: When we looked at our polling numbers just from yesterday, we had almost three-quarters of Americans who said they need to drop this bill, just stop talking about health care and move on to something else or they need to start new. So don’t the Republicans have a point?

PELOSI: The point is, is that we have a responsibility here, and the Republicans have had a field day going out there and misrepresenting what is in the bill, but that’s what they do. That’s what…

CROWLEY: So it has been messaging thing?

PELOSI: … they do. No…

CROWLEY: You think people don’t understand the bill?

PELOSI: No, I don’t think — there isn’t a bill. When we have a bill, which we will in a matter of days, then that is the bill that we can sell. Our bill, the House and the Senate bill, had some major differences which we’re hoping now to reconcile. [emphasis mine]

Nancy Pelosi starts off by saying that Republicans have had a field day misrepresenting what is in the bill. We could argue all day as to whether this is true and whether things were misrepresented but that is not important. Pelosi and her minions tell us this is wonderful and people just don’t understand it. They had enough votes (provided they all voted for it) to pass it. If things were misrepresented then they could have passed it and let America find out how wonderful it really is.

They did not do that for a reason. It stinks and they know it. They do not want to own it so they blame Republicans. Let me be clear for the moonbats who have trouble with this, Republicans did not obstruct because they could not block passage.

Next, Pelosi goes on to say that there is no bill. She said there is no bill now but when they have a bill they will be able to sell it. If this is true then how did Republicans misrepresent what was in the bill? You cannot misrepresent what is in a bill if there is no bill (her words were technically there is not a bill).

Maybe Pelosi is defining bill as the reconciled product from the Senate and House. If that is her definition of “the bill” then Republicans could not have misrepresented what is in “the bill” because “the bill” does not yet exist.

This is all misdirection and deliberate confusion created to make it appear as if Republicans had anything to do with the Democrats being unable to pass their health care takeover. They do not want to own up to the fact that they had enough votes and could have rammed it through at any time and still could not get it done. Now that they do not have a filibuster proof majority they want to ram it through with reconciliation and claim they had to because Republicans obstructed the process.

This is a lie and they should be called on it every time.

I do not agree with the health care process going on and would not have been happy if they had passed it when they had the chance, especially since a lot of people oppose it and I know it will be bad for this country. But, they should have the integrity and honor to admit that they hold all the responsibility for that failure.

No matter what, Pelosi is out lying about the process (or should I say misrepresenting) and whether or not they have a bill and trying to paint Republicans as obstructionists.

Republicans showed at the summit that they had ideas and were willing to work but like I said before, Obama’s idea of bipartisan is when Republicans do what he wants. He said it before and he intimated it at the summit, he won.

Fine, but man up and admit your own failures and the failures of your party. You blew your chance to pass it when you were unobstructed and now you might not have the votes to ram it through even with little used and inappropriate procedures. You can’t admit to your base that you could not get it done when you were completely unobstructed so now you need to blame it on Republicans to try and salvage the November elections.

It is your fault Mr. Obama and the fault of your Democrats.

Keep this in mind America as they use “obstructionist Republicans” as their reason for ramming it through (or at least trying) with reconciliation.

It really is too bad the Democrat party lacks men and women of honor and integrity.

Obama’s Unspoken Comment on Drilling

Barack Obama, faced with flat polls and the inability to put away John McCain, has switched positions on drilling for American oil. Obama had been opposed to drilling and had maintained that it would not provide relief in the short term but now says that he would like to see us drill. This is nothing more than pandering to the majority who want us to drill here and drill now. But what were Obama’s unspoken words?

“If, in order to get that passed, we have to compromise in terms of a careful, well thought-out drilling strategy that was carefully circumscribed to avoid significant environmental damage – I don’t want to be so rigid that we can’t get something done.” [emphasis mine] My Way News

What Obama has indicated, whether he realizes it or not, is that the position of the Democrats and specifically Nancy Pelosi, is obstructive. If he is saying that his change of heart is because he does not want to be so rigid that something can’t get done then he is also saying that those in Congress who hold his previous objections to drilling are being so rigid that we cannot get something done.

It is obvious that Obama changed his position for political expediency and in so doing he has called those in his party who still object, obstructionists. I can’t imagine Pelosi or the other obstructionists will be too happy with the chosen one but I am sure they will embrace his position in some fashion so as to make it appear that they are putting aside their objections to help the people out of $4.00 gasoline.

It would do us well to remember that if they really wanted to address the problem they would have done so before they went on a five week vacation. If Obama wanted us to believe he was sincere he should have called for Congress to stay in session and address the problem. Instead, he announced his new position after it had adjourned for the entire month of August.

The important thing to remember in all of this is that Obama has outed his party as being so rigid that we can’t get something done.

Of course, those of us on the right already knew that.

Nancy Pelosi’s Oil Hoax

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the worst Speaker in the history of Congress, opposes America using her own resources. Pelosi is opposed to any kind of oil exploration that involves American property. Oh sure, they talk about already leased property that is not being drilled by oil companies but they fail to tell you it is because there is very little oil there. We know where trillions of barrels of oil are located and we have the technology to extract those barrels but Congress, full of idiots like Pelosi, refuses to allow us to drill. Nancy Pelosi has called the plan to drill a hoax.

“Once again, the oilman in the White House is echoing the demands of Big Oil.

“The Bush plan is a hoax. It will neither reduce gas prices nor increase energy independence. It just gives millions more acres to the same companies that are sitting on nearly 68 million acres of public lands and coastal areas.

“If the President wants to bring down prices in the next two weeks, not the next two decades, he should free our oil by releasing a small portion of the more than 700 million barrels of oil we have put in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

“It’s time to tell the oil industry: ‘You already have millions of acres to drill. Use it or lose it.'” Pelosi Website

This air head is so out of touch, even for a liberal, that it is mind boggling. I have already addressed the millions of acres. If any appreciable amount of oil was there the companies would have drilled for it. As for the oil man calling the shots of big oil, Pelosi is following the playbook of the environmental whack jobs who funnel money to her and her Democratic colleagues. One of these two is trying to solve the problem. Pelosi says that the plan is a hoax and that it would not lower prices. The fact is, if we were to remove the restrictions then the market would see a decrease in oil prices because of the very speculators Congress says drove the prices up. Oil companies can be pumping oil in 2 to 5 years and we will be well on our way to lower fuel prices. So what if the prize is a few years away. I don’t imagine farmers say “well, it is spring and we have no crops to sell so let’s NOT plant any for later.” The only way to reap future benefits is to start NOW.

The Democrats continually say that drilling will not solve the problem (it will) but they never offer any other solution. Pelosi is the one who promised us she and her fellow Dems had a plan to get this all under control. Where is that plan? The only thing I see from them is obstruction. If Bill Clinton had not vetoed drilling in ANWR we would be getting that oil now and the price would not be a problem.

But let’s get this straight. Pelosi and her ilk do not want us to drill and they claim that it will not make a difference. But, according to these geniuses, releasing some of the strategic oil reserves will. I think the oil reserves might provide relief but even if we released it the relief would only last about 2 months. Then where will we be? Right back on the world oil market paying high prices but doing so with an empty tank where our reserves used to be. Only in Congress will trillions of barrels have no affect but 2 months of reserves will. This, by the way, is how they manage our money.

This is the problem with politicians and Democrats in particular. They cannot think into the future. They are reactive rather than proactive. They only care about what they can do to get through the next election. Pelosi would love to have the reserves released in the next few weeks so that prices would go down going into the November elections so that the voting public will forget that the ENTIRE oil crisis has been caused by those in power. She does not give a rodent’s derriere what happens to the price after November because the election will be over.

Keep in mind folks, the taxpayers pay for their leased vehicles, the insurance, the registration, and for ALL the gas they put in them so they are not feeling the pain at the pump. Pelosi couldn’t care less what you have to pay for gas. She only wants prices to go down so Barry Obambi can get elected. Then she and her ilk will have 4 years to screw up even more (assuming they win the mid-terms).

Nancy Pelosi’s “plan” to release the oil from the strategic reserve is the real hoax in this story. Her “we have a plan” claim was a hoax and the idea that a move, which might affect the market for a few months, will solve this issue is a hoax. Nancy Pelosi is not a forward thinker and she is not a leader. She certainly does not care about people or this country. If she did she would stop blocking us from using our own resources to get out of this mess.

Remember this on election day folks. President Bush lifted the Executive Order banning drilling and now the process is being held up by Democrats in Congress. Democrats who do not care about you.

It adds insult to injury to know that after you put $100 in your gas tank your taxes put $100 in theirs.

They have a 9% approval rating. What say we bounce them all out and start with some fresh people with fresh ideas.
