Honestly when one listens to "pencilneck" Adam Schiff, democrat Congressman from SoCal regarding the "memo" or just about anything else, I can't imagine he is from planet earth. The man is a total skunk.

Congress voted 517-5 to impose sanctions on Russia,,,Trumpski is owned by the Rooskies so he says NO!!!

Off your meds again? The only Russian conspiracy involved madam liar liar pantsuits on fire and the bosses at the FBI.

DonB 540pm - It would help if you gave a one sentence summary of the naked links you provide, to bolster the chances that your point will get through. The alternative is to hold fast to a fervent belief that other readers will always complete their research along the minimal directions you have cited.

Hey Doug LaMalfa got that choice seat that lady with the big hats usually gets because she is boycotting with the congressional black caucus.

Pelosi seems to be chewing her cud! Certainly not clapping.

Bill Tozer

I lied. It’s not all about the little upcoming IG report. Nah, it’s all about Humpty Dumpty sitting on the wall and Humpty Dumpty beginning to slightly sway back and forth, now just starting to rock before he has a great fall. We have seen but just the scratches on the surface.

This is bigger than anything many have seen in their lifetimes under American governance. The slaying of a rouge domestic government that is fighting for all she is worth to wrestled power away and rip out the moorings to the Constitution. It has happened before and will happen again, but you got to go way past Watergate to see what we are witnessing now playing out before us. McCabe left with his head hung low.

You know, Woodward and Bernstein were not such great journalists. They got lucky. Felt handed them all the goods neatly stacked and organized. Fell right into their laps.
Boy, Felt was enraged when Nixon did not make him head of the FBI. Nixon made him Associate Director. Felt was out for revenge. Hmmm. Wasn’t McCabe a Deputy Director or Associate Director or something too? Rod Rosenstein’s name keeps circulating. He is Deptuty Director of something as well. Et tu, Brute?

This makes Watergate look like a kid blowing out candles on their birthday cake.

Don’t think identifying as an America is what the SJWs had in mind with their politics of Identity. Trump was so unPC tonight. Warmed the cockles of me weary heart.

Good to see POTUS give a nice polite center of the road bipartisan speech and graciously extend the olive branch across the aisle.

Not bad for Trump’s first crack at it.

No apologies necessary, Mr. Russ. The second post included the missing piece, “CBS Poll 75% Approval”. Besides, it was worth reading twice. Guess Our Popinjay will be running over here sometimes mumbling something about “ABCNEWS: 'Divisive... Gloomy... Sad...'. Oh, how sad is right.

Ok, was Carrot Top really drooling? Or was he just imitating Great Uncle Drunk Teddy? Now that Drooling Joe speech of was one gloomy speech.

Mail in ballot fraud. How widespread is it?

Breitbart Texas recently reported that Nueces County Clerk Kara Sands told her commissioners court that candidates reported various forms of election fraud. A city constable candidate received what was described as “constant” complaints from voters about mail-in ballot coercion. Others were reported to be perpetrating election fraud by “cultivating and harvesting votes in large quantities.” Another candidate was approached by someone who promised they could get 250 ballots in exchange for a payment of $1,000.

Huff-n- Puff Post is huffing and puffing again. Looks like it is up to Bernie to save the globe.

“A shocked Huffington Post has named and shamed the key Democrats who could have spoken out but didn’t:

In his speech, Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) didn’t bring up global warming, sea-level rise or the surge in global greenhouse gas emissions, which threaten to become worse as the Republican White House ramps up fossil fuel production to unprecedented levels.

and

Even the State of the Union statement issued by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), considered one of the most hawkish Democrats on climate issues, snubbed climate change.

It was left to Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) to keep the faith:”

Finally skimmed one of your links. Did not see Sessions weighing in, which would make sense (to moi) since AG Sessions has recused himself from anything dealing with Russiagate. The FISA request deals with Russia and a Russian spy.

“FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, both Trump appointees have grave concerns about releasng the Nunes Memo.”

Maybe you meant DOJ officials, aka, the deputies.

Bill Tozer

PS: From your link. He swings and misses. Strike two and 7/16.

Asked if the Justice Department backed the FBI’s position, a department spokesperson noted that the FBI is part of DOJ, and did not immediately respond to a follow-up question. A spokesperson for Mueller’s office declined to comment.

Paul Emery

Trump is aiding the Mexican drug dealers by doing NOTHING about the opiate epidemic which kills a hundred times more American citizens than terrorism of immigrants.

Bonnie McGuire

President Trump's state of the union speech was the best I've watched since Reagan. Even better because of the recognition given to ordinary people who experienced, overcame and achieved something special. Like President Trump, Abraham Lincoln also said that America (because of its Constitution) was a place where ordinary people could achieve their dreams. President Trump obviously knows who create the health and wealth of America's economy, and is actively working for and with we the people. What a contrast watching the show time sour grapes faces of Senator Pelosi and friends who only care about money and power for themselves. It's kind of humorous in that they definitely appear to be anti-Americans carrying on their destructive war within this country for many years.
Here's the entire text of the President's speech you can read.

Scenes

Saint Paul sez: "Trump is aiding the Mexican drug dealers by doing NOTHING about the opiate epidemic"

Oh, just be quiet you silly little turd.

The DOJ has about a million regulations, efforts, and rules on opiates. There's a fine line between those who really really need the things to just get by and those who abuse them.

Try working in that world, assuming you've ever had a real job, and you'll see what I mean.

Inventing a set of rules for handing them out is a tricky thing.

Gregory

The "America First" toon reproduced at Crabb's is a real misappropriation. Gerard LK Smith, the "America First" party presidential "nominee", got a whopping 1,700+ votes in 1944. He was denounced as among "professional anti-Semites and lunatic nationalists" by the Anti-Defamation League in the 1950's. A real "Denier", he claimed the Holocaust never happened and the six million missing Jews were moved to the USA during WWII.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America_First_Party_(1944)

No RL, those people are not seen at every Tea Party/GOP event, and the whole country said "Ugh!" to his campaign.

Earl keeps reaching for the baseless cheap shots, as does his BFF Chris Peterson. Crabb's blog is a verifiable echo chamber now.

Todd Juvinall

Paul Emery | 31 January 2018 at 01:19 PM
Could you not find anything to praise from his speech? You are simply unimportant and your opinions have become so reliable for derision you appear deranged. Opiates certainly are killing a lot of people and it must be Trump stuffing the pills down their throats. I suggest your pals that love the dope are the reason there is a market for the death pills. And we will see more now that the voters of Califonia agreed with you drug pushers about MJ.

Todd Juvinall

Regarding Crabb and his ilk writing about the signs at Tea Party rallies and claiming some sort of racial and moral superiority. Makes me laugh my ass off. Crabb is a racist and so is Frisch and Peterson. They try their best to blame others and deflect from their own foibles but they cannot make that work. They are projecting their own shortcomings onto others and Crabb just makes crap up. What a joke he is.

Gregory

Todd, I think you should stop using "ilk" in your postings; you just don't have the knack.

Todd Juvinall

Oh I do have the knack. You should leave well enough alone.

Todd Juvinall

Gregory, chew on this. It is being used correctly.

ilk
ilk/
noun
noun: ilk

a type of people or things similar to those already referred to.
"the veiled suggestions that reporters of his ilk seem to be so good at"
synonyms: type, sort, class, category, group, set, breed, strain, bracket, genre, make, model, kind, brand, vintage, stamp, style, family, variety
"a film of this ilk comes packaged with a fair deal of violence"

Bonnie McGuire

The America First Committee (AFC) was organized in September 1940 to oppose America`s potential intervention in World War II. Its best known leader was Charles Lindbergh. He'd attended the Pacific Conference and felt those involved didn't care about America, but were using us. He thought Russia was more of a threat. The propaganda was pretty intense. Years ago I read his Wartime Journals. It was really interesting....1000 pages of narrative, that takes the reader from March, 1938 to June, 1945. A detailed personal record of events from the time of the German invasion of Austria to Lindbergh's visits to postwar Europe's ruined cities.

Gregory

Todd, it wasn't a question of your grammar. It's like a kid writing a term paper or answering an exam question and running out of things to say about a person or issue, and using "et cetera" to intimate they have more to say.

If you think he's placeable on the list of synonyms you copied above, name it specifically, don't just bloody well hope we'll pick the one you're thinking of. "Ilk" doesn't cut it; it's a cheat otherwise.

Paul Emery

So Trump gets off the hook Scenes because, as you put it

"Inventing a set of rules for handing them out is a tricky thing."

Here's the numbers
"More than 64,000 drug overdose deaths estimated in 2016, the sharpest increase occurred among deaths related to fentanyl and fentanyl analogs (synthetic opioids) with over 20,000 overdose deaths." Source: CDC WONDER

Care to estimate the number of deaths in this country from Terrorism or illegal immigrants? Give it a try. There have been only 32 Deaths from terrorism since 9-11.

If Trump wants to "Make America Great Again" why not give more than a token effort to opiate and related substances abuse deaths. The States are crying out for help and have received little increase in financial assistance from Trump.

"If you look at Trump’s actions, well, it’s a very different story. There has been no move by Trump’s administration to actually spend more money on the opiate crisis. Key positions in the administration remain unfilled, even without nominees in the case of the White House’s drug czar office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). And although the administration’s emergency declaration was renewed this month, it has led to essentially no action since it was first signed — no significant new resources, no major new initiatives."

Posted by: Gregory | 31 January 2018 at 02:00 PM - Trump's appropriation of "America First" would seem to predate Crabb's. The "lunatic nationalist" sure describes Trump.

While China gina and many of our trading partners are making all kinds of trade agreements, Trump is taking our marbles and going home.

We will see how that plays out long term. Sounds to me like we are going backwards, but I guess all that buddy buddy international trading is the stuff of Agenda 21.

BonnieM 308pm - Happy to hear that you also read Lindbergh's wartime journals; that was one hell of an enlightenment for me. Lindbergh was a man totally misunderstood after 1 September 1939 by most people in power, and even those considering themselves educated. The man was self-made and a selfless American patriot.

Paul Emery | 31 January 2018 at 03:19 PM

Actually, Paul Emery, it is the attitude you have along with your ilk that is the cause of drug overdoses. MJ is a gateway drug to worse and since you state you are a "libertarian" about what a person can do with their own body perhaps you personally are the reason there are drug OD's. Think about your own part of this scourge and leave Trump alone. He neither smokes or drinks and does not so drugs. You should emulate him rather than disparate him and his lifestyle choices.

Mary Wanna

Do we need to create some definitions here: Recreational Opiates (RO) and Medicinal Opiates (MO)?

RO gets all the publicity. If MO use is up it is because a large percentage of the population is aging and more people are trying to manage pain.

Todd Juvinall

Paul Emery you are the self-proclaimed green-libertarian. You are the one who is constantly telling us that any substance one wishes to take is their business. Yet you cry that Trump is overlooking the "opiate" issue. So look in the mirror as it is you that is the hypocrite here, not I or Trump.

And as far as majority votes. I can certainly disagree with the issue but still support the process. Unlike your ilk that that did not do the same for the Prop 8 vores. So preach to some ignorant people and play those dopey head games you try somewhere else.

The "America First" party was neonazi, and your cheapening "lunatic nationalist" to describe Trump just shows you to be a lot like Michael P. Anderson who is given to such ugly rhetoric. Do you know him and his bullshit games?

Last night was a most inspiring speech. After eight long years of being pushed aside into the darkness hearing the constant drumbeat that America is bad, our founding is bad, our founders are bad, our military is bad, our country, our flag,our culture, our borders, our patriots, our police, our thinking, our speech are all bad bad bad.....after 8 long dark years, last night finally someone came out and proclaimed to the World it is not only ok to love America, it’s great to love America.
I love America and America is great. Trump laid forth in too many ways to list here how and why America is exceptional and American Exceptionalism is a fact and is alive and thriving. I love my country, home of the brave.

My soul has been watered and my spirit revived. My whole being has been rejuvenated.
I will skip the specifics of Trumps address for another post.
I loved how Trump used Natural Law to tie it all in, from the man with crutches to the rotunda, Capital Building, the monuments to great men in DC, to the Capital City itself as the beacon of love of liberty that beats inside the breast of all men seeking to be free. The love of God, family, flag, and country. The love of America and pride of being an American.

Ours indeed is a righteous cause.

State Of The Union: Trump And U.S. Democrats Ignore Global Warming Completely


SOTU: Trump Does Not Mention Global Warming Once
Global Warming Policy Forum, 31 January 2018

While President Donald Trump touted policies to make the U.S. into an energy superpower, his first State of the Union (SOTU) address to Congress left out a hallmark of Obama-era speeches. Trump’s address is the first in eight years to not refer to manmade global warming — nine years if you include former President Barack Obama’s 2009 address to Congress. Instead, Trump emphasized deregulation and boosting energy production — many of the regulations Trump rescinded were Obama-era global warming policies. --Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller, 30 January 2018


Democrats Ignore Climate Change In State Of The Union Rebuttal
Huffington Post, 31 January 2018

The Democratic Party omitted any mention of climate change in its rebuttal Tuesday to President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address. In his speech, Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) didn’t bring up global warming, sea-level rise or the surge in global greenhouse gas emissions, which threaten to become worse as the Republican White House ramps up fossil fuel production to unprecedented levels. --Huffington Post, 31 January 2018

It snowed in Africa, global warming must be over.

Under the heading ‘A blind squirrel finds a nut’

“For years, the fundamental complaint of the right in the culture wars has been that the left is hypocritical, and the Nikki Haley episode perfectly confirms the point: A prominent Republican woman is smeared. The author who does the smearing is celebrated by all the A-listers, including the most prominent Democratic woman in the country, who herself has a history of giving a pass (or worse) to men accused of sexual assault and harassment. And yet the arbiters of American culture cheer the Democrat and, in the words of the actor Don Cheadle, tell the Republican who has the gall to defend herself: ‘Sit down, girl. You’re drunk.’” —New York Times’ Bari Weiss.

I have so proud of my country. I am so proud to be an American. I an so proud of how Trump articulated how making America is great for all Americans.

But, not all see it that way.

“When the president comes to make the State of the Union address, he will try to characterize his initiatives as something positive. But 2017 was a very bad year for the American people because of the failure on the part of the Republicans in Congress to get the job done.” —Nancy Pelosi

“President Trump was handed an already healthy economy by his predecessor. Like many things in his life, he inherited the healthy economy. … Obama created more jobs in the last year of his term than you created in the first year of yours. So if you’re going to pat yourself on the back, give a shout out to Barack Obama.” —Chuck Schumer

Time to look in the mirror: “While I am always willing to work with my colleagues across the aisle, the president’s call for bipartisanship and unity rings hollow. You cannot reject bipartisan plans to improve health care and protect Dreamers or sow hate and division — and then turn around the next day and say you want to work together.” —Sen. Kamala Harris

Oh my. And to think she taught a class. I believe that was one class too many.
“I went to the #SOTU. I wanted it burned into my eyes. If there’s ever a moment when I’m too tired to keep fighting, I just have to close my eyes & see [Donald Trump], [Mike Pence] & [Paul Ryan] applauding themselves for punching working families in the gut, & I’m back in this fight.” —Elizabeth Warren raging over the fact that Americans can now keep more of their money

“President Trump said the word ‘America’ more than 80 times in his speech. Yet, after a divisive first year, we hear and feel how exclusionary that ‘America’ is, with policies that have harmed so many vulnerable American communities. The ACLU stands ready to protect these communities, both in the courts and at the polls.” —ACLU national political director Faiz Shakir

And last, I include one “conservative” voice: “The Democrats certainly did themselves no favors by refusing to applaud job growth and higher wages.” —Jonah Goldberg

I remember when incoming First Lady “elect” Michelle Obama said it was first time in her life she is proud of her country. That comment generated a lot of heat. In a way, I can relate. After Tuesday night’s SOTUA, it was the first time in awhile that I felt great pride in my country. Pride. Great pride. Swelling pride.
