P. Emery sez: "Sarah Sanders believes that Trump was personally picked by "God" to be President. I didn't make this up. this is real. Check out the video."

I never thought about it much, but you could make that argument.

It's darned amazing how a guy with a microphone, boundless energy, and a Twitter account rode in at the last minute to save the country from you and your people. Surprising events tend to be blamed on deities and this certainly qualifies.

History will tell the tale. It could still be that some future Caliphate or Mandarin-speaking official will view Trump in the same light as they might Constantine XI, but it's best to be remembered as someone who gave it a good shot.

George Rebane

PaulE 853pm - Do you think that it is somehow reprehensible, ignorant, politically incorrect, ... for Sanders to publicly express her own belief viz Trump's election?

Todd Juvinall

Scenes has it right. Thank GOD Trump got elected. Hillary and Paul Emery would have driven the country into the ground by now. Funny though how Paul Emery does not hold his democrat pals to the same standards. Pelosi and other top dems have cited their "moral" thoughts to running the place. And also mention GOD a lot. But that is why PE has no creds here.

As far as Trump saying Tim Apple. Yes he said it. An error we all make from time to time. I call my brother by my sons name and vice versa sometimes. It just happens. But the media thinks it is crucial. What a hoot!

Paul Emery

Not at all George. She's entitled to her opinion. I just think her religious inspiration is a bit bizarre. I mean did her Guy in the Sky God actually contemplate that what we needed was a Trump type to straight things out to his liking then with a wave of his cape invent Donald Trump to become the savior of Christians and the USA?

George Rebane

PaulE 1007am - I think you'll have to find someone else to indulge your follow-on fascinations with Sanders' statement. But if you're really serious about the theology involved here, I recommend John Sanders' 'The God Who Risks' treatise on open theology.

Many scientists and techies, including me, share this view of God and 'his' role in the universe, or better, the universe's role in 'him'. FYI, open theology is not uniformly shared in Christianity.

Bill Tozer

@9:53 am Triggger Warning: Controversial and no doubt will offend many....

Did God raise up Donald Trump?

Interesting conversation. No way to prove it and no way to disprove it. Recently listened to a couple of interviews by an old author peddling his latest book. An agnostic, born and raised by two card carrying Communists in NY. He puts forth the agrument that Protestant Christianity (sorry Catholics) is the origins of the individual liberties we have today, from women’s rights, civil rights, religious liberty, and the list goes on and on.

He traces it back to the Reformation where prior to that the Christians in Europe had to go through the Catholic Church clergy for Absolution for sins. The Refomation removed that step and made man accountable directly to God without the middle man. The individual, individual responsibility, and indivual accountability. Those that fled England to the New Word came over to practice Protestantism. One can see the roots of that individualism in Rights bestowed by the Creator and the founding, limited government. Who did the Pilgrims give thanks to on the first Thanksgiving? To themselves? Interesting proposition put forth by an agnostic.

The recent eruption over Ilhan Omar’s statements and those defending her using intersectionality, group identity, identity politics to absolve her from individual accountability was quite telling and exposed another telling rift in the Great Divide.

I often wondered why when Mao took over China, the number two person on his top hit list behind Chiang Kai-shek was a relatively unknown Christian author who was not involved in government or politics. I see now he was an ideological threat to Comminism and the herd mentality. The group above the individual.

From a different link I posted on another thread that dovetails with this train of though.

“America is the only country in the world founded on a belief in limited government. It is a uniquely American value. And that is precisely the problem: It is uniquely American. Very few immigrants to America bring with them a belief in limited government.”

The book by a devout anti-communist agnostic.. I probably won’t buy it, but one never knows.



Well,, Paul's worshiping of rocks played out well,, well,, before he decided those rocks,, were just that... Rocks.
Then decides he will follow whatever "religion" he decides to follow on any given week.

I have to agree with her. Thank GOD Trump was elected. Paul would be fighting for scraps today if Hillary was elected. Or maybe just would die in the Kmart pharmacy line. You know,, that "free health care" he was hoping for.

Paul Emery

Thanking God is one thing Walt. Believing Trump was installed by God, as Sarah Sanders clearly stated is another. Do you agree with Sarah Sanders when she says "I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that's why he's there'?

Bill Tozer

Agenda 21 Wildlands Project....circling the barn

Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable.…” (Italics added)

Throughout this UN document the socialist model for private property rights are set forth as the basis for future United Nations policy:

Public ownership or effective control of land in the public interest is the single most important means of…achieving a more equitable distribution of the benefits of development…. Governments must maintain full jurisdiction and exercise complete sovereignty over such land…. Change in the use of land…should be subject to public control and regulation…of the common good. (Italics added)

Our vision is simple: we live for the day when Grizzlies in Chihuahua have an unbroken connection to Grizzlies in Alaska; when Gray Wolf populations are continues from New Mexico to Greenland; when vast unbroken forests and flowing plains again thrive and support pre-Columbian populations of plants and animals; when humans dwell with respect, harmony, and affection for the land…3


Todd Juvinall

What is wrong thinking GOD wanted Trump? I think it is great! Better than Goat lovers and sheep handlers in charge.

Paul Emery


Do you "think" God prefers Republicans over Democrats?

Todd Juvinall

Well, of course, GOD does. You secularists don't believe in him so take your medicine.


Emery.. Consult your granite slab, and the ring of quartz crystals.
Let us know what they say.

Don Bessee

Too woke and pissing off everyone, not bad for a Monday -



Don Bessee

Anyone near the po' ol' fakenewsman get him to his fainting couch!



Paul Emery

So Todd believes God watches Fox News every day to see how Trump is doing and sends encouragements to Sarah Sanders to get the word out that he's on board with MAGA movement.


Is that what the $29.95 crystal skull is telling you Emery?
How many chickens lost their lives for the reading?


Since Emery is now the self appointed expert about religion,
then an explanation of why LIBS hate the Jews is in order.

Bill Tozer

Lol. AOC’s brother put AOC’s name in a casting call that went out. That’s how it all got started. She did not even know until they called her for an interview.

—But an interesting aspect of the “Mr. Reagan” video is that it puts that in perspective for us by developing the case that Ocasio-Cortez was recruited via a sort of “casting call” to be a prototype Justice Democrats candidate. She came in without an electoral politics background and with no political experience, other than reportedly joining the pipeline protest at Standing Rock for a brief period.

So it’s certainly informative that the first thing such a candidate did was get embedded in the funding mechanism.

For those who aren’t sure quite what to believe about the “casting call” characterization, I suggest watching this Justice Democrats video, starting in particular at the 2:00 mark. In a conversation with Chakrabarti, Rojas, and Trent, Ocasio-Cortez describes how her brother nominated her for the Justice Democrats vetting process, and she went through a series of what were basically auditions, until she was selected to go to Kentucky for what the theater world would call a “reading.” Justice Democrats apparently called it a “summit.”

Justice Democrats
Interesting to note the Green New Deal as written over one weekend .

Bill Tozer

A link

and some quotes:

For the record: “The caricature of environmentalists is that they are just using climate change as a stalking horse for their true agenda, which is to socialize the entire economy. And lo and behold, what does the Green New Deal resolution call for? Net zero carbon emissions in 10 years, universal health care, guaranteed jobs for all, paid family leave, paid vacations, refurbishing every single building in the country to meet environmental standards, eliminating nuclear power and on and on. In fact, most of the resolution doesn’t even address climate change.” —Mona Charen

Friendly fire: “We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was. And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.” —Ilhan Omar (Omar feels not rebuked but emboldened. She voted for a resolution to condemn generic “hate” and then promptly attacked the Democrats’ Dear Leader.)

Race bait: “The founders were imperfect geniuses. They wrote a lot of our bigotries into [the Constitution].” —Cory Booker

Demo-gogues: “I always used to laugh when people would say about my tax policies: ‘He just wants to tax you to death.’ First of all, I’m the guy who pays the max tax. … For me to be able to pay my fair share of sustaining this amazing nation so kids coming up behind me are going to have the same opportunities that I do is something that I insist upon.” —Barack Obama

The BIG Lie: “It is a fact that we can change human behaviors without much change to our lifestyle and we can save the future generations of our country and this world.” —Kamala Harris (What about “get your laws off my body”?)

Shot across the Left’s bow: “The central and most serious question in this investigation, the reason Robert Mueller started it: Did the current president of the United States assist the Kremlin in an attack on our democracy? And if Mueller, after two years, comes back and says, ‘I don’t have the evidence to support that charge,’ that’s a reckoning. That’s a reckoning for progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election. It’s a reckoning for the media. It’s a reckoning across the country if in fact after all this time there was no collusion.” —ABC’s Terry Moran

And last… “The New York Times editorialized the other day that Trump declared ‘that there’s a crisis at the border, contrary to all evidence.’ Then, the paper ran a news story headlined, ‘Border at 'Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Migrants Cross in a Month.‘ Both of those pieces can’t be right. There’s manufacturing a crisis, then there’s ignoring one for fear of conceding anything to Trump.” —Rich Lowry

Bonus: Hell hath froze over

Even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer couldn’t fault Mr. Trump this time. “I was pleased to see the president recognize North Korea’s unwillingness to strike a comprehensive deal,” he said. “President Trump did the right thing by walking away and not cutting a poor deal for the sake of a photo op.”



Let me translate Modern Christian for you:

If it happened, it can be considered to be God's Will. Period.

An alleluia! can be added if one wishes to celebrate God's will and you're talking to anothe Christian.

If Trump had lost, that would also have been God's Will. Especially when one Christian is talking to another.

There is nothing terrible about this... it's just their way.

Whichever it is, it takes prayer to decide what that means.

Does that make you feel better?

Paul Emery | 11 March 2019 at 01:49 PM

I realize you get your instructions while dancing naked on a rock at the Yuba River. I don't question that. Even when you sacrifice a goat and dissect its entrails I even accept that is your gig for religion. In my case, yes, GOD talks to many of us, some deserving some not.


,,,gosh, people are ranting and raving over AOC and that Muslim gal. Try to remain calm. They are just the Congressional Froshies who are on the learning curve.

,,,remember when a clueless businessman became President? People thought he was out of control...

But now we know he is a very stable genius brought by God to save the MAGA meatheads!!!


"a clueless businessman".. Really? How so? He's outsmarted every damned Lefty and made the U.S. a MUCH better place.
I guess that's how one can get when your an anally violated dude.

How schizo are the Dems? Poll says 60% say the Dems would prefer their Presidential candidate to not be an old white heterosexual male. Same poll shows Biden (undeclared) leading the pack and Sanders second, ROFLMAO.

How schizo are the Dems? On a radio interview today, Kamala Harris had to explain why she, as a prosecutor, put black men convicted in a court of law for serious crimes in prison. Explain yourself!
In the same interview, Kamala Harris had to explain her blackness and explain herself as to why she married a white man. “Because I love him” was not a good enough answer. Loving a white man so much you would want to marry him somehow brings into question her credentials as a black woman, ROFLMAO. What year is this? 1919 or 2019?

Sure, Kamala may not be an African-American, but she is black.. But not black enough. I am sooo glad I am not in the Democrat Party.. That’s too crazy for even moi.

Trouble in ol' hickory state for team socialist-

The other entities controlled or run by Chakrabarti at the time that were housed at 714 S. Gay St. during the period of occupancy of Brand New Campaign LLC included:

Brand New Congress, a PAC
Justice Democrats, a PAC
Brand New Congress, LLC, a private consulting firm apparently controlled by Chakrabarti
The Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaign, which filed its statement of organization with the FEC that listed the building as its offices on May 17, 2017 and listed its email as “admin@brandnewcongress.org,” the email address of Brand New Congress, the PAC.
Six congressional campaigns which filed their original statements of organization with the FEC in May 2017 that listed the building as its office and listed its email as “admin@brandnewcongress.org,” the email address of Brand New Congress, the PAC: Robert Ryerse 2018, Letitia Plummer 2018, Adrienne Bell 2018, Sarah Smith 2018, Chardo Richardson for Congress, and the Anthony Clark campaign

Five additional congressional campaigns that filed amended statements of organization with the FEC in July 2017 that listed 714 S. Gay St. Knoxville as their headquarters, and an email address of the Brand New Congress PAC (admin@brandnewcongress.org) as their campaign email address: Cori Bush 2018, Paula Swearengin 2018, Committee to Elect Ryan Stone, Hector Morales for Congress, and the Perry for Pennsylvania campaign.

Some of the congressional campaigns subsequently filed amendments to their statement of organization listing different addresses for their offices.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, however, did not file an amended statement of organization with the FEC changing the address of her campaign headquarters from 714 S. Gay Street, Knoxville, Tennessee to a location in New York until November 20, 2018, two weeks after she won the general election to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, and more than six months after the Brand New Campaign LLC lease of the Knoxville office space ended.

All told, at least 16 different organizations, all controlled or managed by Chakrabarti and, in the case of two of those organizations–her own campaign beginning in May 2017 and Justice Democrats beginning in February 2018, by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez– listed the 714. S. Gay Street location as their headquarters during the 2017 to 2018 time frame of Brand New Campaign LLC’s occupancy of the office space there.

Coordination between PACs and congressional campaigns is a violation of election law, and in the rare circumstances where PACs and congressional campaigns have been known to share office space, FEC regulations require firewalls–“walls of separation” to help ensure that illegal coordination does not occur.

But sources in Knoxville who visited the office while it was occupied by Chakrabarti and his associates among the 16 or more entities housed there that he controlled or managed say that the physical layout of the space gave the impression that it housed a single, integrated entity.

John O'Sullivan, editor of the Democratic review writes it is "Our manifest destiny to overspread the continent ...for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions."

And there is this gem,

: Horace Greeley writes in the New York Tribune: "We can easily defeat the armies of Mexico, slaughter them by thousands, and pursue them perhaps to their capital; we can conquer and "annex" their territory; but what then? Who believes that a score of victories over Mexico, the "annexation" of half of her provinces, will give us more Liberty, a purer Morality, a more prosperous Industry...?

"It's a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful large corporations and political entities. Just look at what this corrupt establishment has done to our cities like Detroit, Flint, Michigan, and rural towns in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and all across our country...

We've seen this first hand in the Wikileaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks, to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global interest powers, her special interest friends, and her donors.”

Lets go for the socialist trifecta, how long till a Maduro villa on the shores of the Caspian sea, he can chose from the northwestern quadrant or the whole of the southern part coast?

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, speaking in an exclusive interview with FOX Business’ Trish Regan, is telling those on the far left, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, that the root of Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis is directly tied to socialism.

"It’s about a lack of information,” Guaidó said about Ocasio-Cortez and Omar on Monday. “So if you want to talk about the economy, we’re seeing 53 percent rates, 1,000 percent in inflation, lack of basic products, medication and food. If we look at the day-to-day suffering of the Venezuelan people that’s not about numbers it’s about human beings. It’s about lives, people who are suffering right now who see their lives in danger and who cannot provide for themselves as human beings to sustain a society and the world. So regarding the crisis going on in Venezuela, I invite everyone to see what’s going on in Venezuela.”

Guaidó is back in his home country after a 10-day absence and defying a travel ban imposed by the country’s Supreme Court controlled by Nicholas Maduro.

His opposition party has declared a state of national emergency as the country enters its fifth day with nearly no electricity.
Wide spread looting is causing more havoc in the capital City of Caracas and other parts of the South American country as conditions continue to deteriorate.

Guaidó said he will invoke a constitutional article allowing the Congress to authorize foreign military operations to intervene in the country’s humanitarian crisis.
“There is part of Article 187 of our National Constitution, which is not only for Venezuela, but it allows for an outside country to cooperate or to assist Venezuela in this sense,” Guaidó said on "Trish Regan Primetime." “As we’ve stated in this article of our constitution, which empowers me, as the person in charge, to employ whatever measures are necessary to enact this cooperation and this assistance for Venezuela.”

And to think the baby killer supporters do not like being called baby killers. Ok, when a infant is out of the womb and laying on a steel tray, and then later killed, what is the name for that besides baby killers? Think a blackface distraction will make it be swept under the rug?

“So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen," Northam, a pediatric neurosurgeon, told Washington radio station WTOP. "The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother."

The Democrats were the ones doing the lynching. The lynchers. The Left hates the Jews. The Left hates America. The Left cheered wildly from sea to troubled sea for legal infanticide. The Left has always been the violent ones. The Left has always been the haters. Violence and death is left in their wake. Evil people do bad things.


"The electorate must be competent for a Democracy to function. Today being incompetent, or illegal, or a felon, or even dead are qualities prized by the Democratic party."

Remember fellas when we used to have that wack job running over here sayin Trump was in bed with Putin, that Trump was in Putin’s backpocket,, that he had bigley concerns that Putin had blackmail stuff on Trump, blah, blah, blah. That was a couple of years ago only to have the psychosis flare up again in the past couple of weeks? Wonder where he got such crazy notions? Nobody is that stupid to come up that one on his own. Must be the new designer drugs or some cheapo rot gut Irish whiskey. You can drink yourself insane drinking that poison.

“Back in July of 2017, Pelosi promised there is “cold, hard evidence” of collusion between Russia and the Trump family.

Less than a month ago, Schiff was even more bullish on the collusion question. He told CNN, “You can see evidence in plain sight on the issue of collusion, pretty compelling evidence.”

One thing is clear to any fair observer: if Pelosi and Schiff really believed their outlandish rhetoric on Russian collusion, they would be moving to impeach the president. If they believed, as they previously claimed, that there is clear evidence to show Trump is in bed with Putin, they could not move fast enough to present that evidence and force Republicans to defend an obviously compromised commander in chief.


Hmm. “Outlandish rhetoric on Russian collusion? Trump in bed with Putin?”
We should take a second look at Prohibition....of rot gut cheapo Irish Whiskey.

In the meantime, I don’t believe one word that Nancy said. Oh, they will move for impeachment alright, when the timing is better....for them. They just needed a distraction from their Kiitchen Sink Resolution fiasco last week.

Believe those liars? Surely you jest. We are still waiting on Nancy’s promise to negotiate in good faith if Trump reopens the gobberment, lol.

Daily quotes from our space in time. Especially yummy today. The last quote explains the glum lot. :(

Friendly fire: “Earth to Democrats: Republicans are telling you something when they gleefully schedule votes on proposals like the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, and a 70 percent marginal tax rate. When they’re more eager to vote on the Democratic agenda than we are, we should take a step back and ask ourselves whether we’re inadvertently letting the political battle play out on their turf rather than our own. If Trump’s only hope for winning a second term turns on his ability to paint us as socialists, we shouldn’t play to type.” —Rahm Emanuel

If work is irredeemable, what does that make socialist handouts? “To me capitalism is irredeemable.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Non Compos Mentis: “We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work. We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited by it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die. And that is, at its core, our problem.” —Ocasio-Cortez

Oh, that must be it: “I don’t think our colleague [Rep. Ilhan Omar] is anti-Semitic. I think she has a different experience in the use of words, doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning that she didn’t realize.” —Nancy Pelosi

Trafficking hate: “Absolutely not. … One is human the other is not.” —Ilhan Omar asked if Barack Obama and Donald Trump are the same (“Anti-Semites who dehumanize their opponents? Who could have predicted that?” —Ed Driscoll)

“I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party. And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution. More of us need to get elected, but more of us need to understand as we come into this institution that I have a lot of work to do with my colleagues.” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib

Dezinformatsiya: “I think the question should be, is Fox [News] state-run TV or is the White House state-run government by Fox TV? … The fact is [Fox anchors] work at a place that has done tremendous damage to this country.” —CNN President Jeff Zucker

The jack of all trades: “I’m trans. I’m a person of color. I’m an immigrant. I’m a lesbian. I’m a gay man. I’m the disabled. I’m everything.” —Alyssa Milano (You’re also a nut.)

The BIG Lie: “Women aren’t the only people who get pregnant or the only people who need to access abortion. The fight for reproductive freedom is a fight for ALL.” —NARAL

And last… “I remember a time when you could enjoy — or not enjoy — a movie based on its merits. Now we have to worry about the politics of casting, the social implications of the film and even the validity of the reviewing process. The joy is being sucked out of pretty much everything.” —Pat Sajak

Now these are not consistant with control problems, sound more like a possible explosive in the hold -

Tamirat Abera, 25, was walking past the field at the time. He said the plane turned sharply, trailing white smoke and items like clothes and papers, then crashed about 300 meters away.

OK Men!! You nuts are about to be regulated by WOMEN!!!
TODD,, better pay extra close attention..
"The bill would require men to ask permission from their partners before taking Viagra or erectile dysfunction medication and wait 24 hours before purchasing a sex toy. The lawmaker wants to classify sex without a condom as “aggravated assault” and ban vasectomy procedures.

Men would also be forced to begin paying child support before a woman reaches eight weeks in pregnancy."

LIB men(?) get a pass.. They would have to prove ownership of said weapons.

So you expected something else when you bring in unskilled, uneducated masses you take from the American kids mouths -

In recently released research by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), analysts discovered that about 63 percent of noncitizen households, those who live legally and illegally in the U.S., use some form of public welfare while only about 35 percent of native-born American households are on welfare.
Likewise, roughly 50 percent of naturalized citizens — those who legally immigrated to the country and became citizens — use taxpayer-funded welfare, as well as about 55 percent of all households headed by legal immigrants, those who are naturalized citizens and those who are not yet citizens.

re DonB 413pm - We again await our progressives to present data showing how illegal aliens in the country are providing America with a net economic benefit. So far their crickets have not supplied such information to back their unsupported claims.

The joys of londinastan -

With 50 to 70 per cent of members of the Somali community in Islington, north London, “directly affected” by knife violence and ‘county lines’ drugs crime, mothers who arrived from the troubled African country during the 1990s told the Observer they felt they had “no choice” but to send their children away from an increasingly dangerous UK.

Time to fill the judiciary slots and cut the leftists crap! BAM!

Rule XXII is designed to force debate on legislation. Historically it has generally not been used on presidential nominations. You can amend legislation, but a nomination is a simple yes-or-no proposition.

Article II of the Constitution specifies that all federal judges require Senate confirmation, as do senior positions in the administration. Currently, 1,200 positions out of 4,100 political appointments in a presidential administration are “principal officers” that are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

Theoretically, the Senate could use its confirmation power to keep seats on the federal judiciary – including even the Supreme Court – open indefinitely. Senators could also employ it to hamstring a presidential administration by denying a vote to presidential nominees for key positions in the government.

In fact, that is what Senate Democrats are doing now. Judges are being slow-walked, with more cloture votes being required in two years for President Trump’s picks than all the judicial nominations of every previous president combined since the filibuster was created in the late 1800s. Similarly, hundreds of the 1,200 Senate-confirmed positions in the Trump administration are still vacant.

After two years of debating what to do about this unprecedented obstruction, Senate Republicans now appear to have the votes to reinterpret Senate rules to rein in this practice. It takes a two-thirds supermajority vote in the Senate (67) to change the chamber’s rules, but it only takes a simple majority (51) to reinterpret existing rules.

Under a reinterpretation proposed by Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), nominees for the Supreme Court, federal courts of appeals, the Cabinet, and certain commissions can still receive 30 hours of post-cloture debate. However, nominations for federal trial courts – called district courts – and all other administration posts will be limited to two hours.

It wasn't a joke, Punch. My 11 March 2019 at 02:39 PM was dead serious.

Basically, you were making fun of a Christian's standard viewpoint. I wasn't.

Paul Emery


It's hard to take seriously that Trump was installed as president because of some divine Christian intervention in our election process Really you don't believe that do you?

Don Bessee

G man @ 756 - I have to say it is more a general hate for religion from the left unless its in the approved victim list. You know like why nobody was saving Christians from ISIS and the rest. Look at the numbers. Team 0 didn't find christens in the jihadi caldron were worthy of refugee status. But unknown approved victim lists were foisted on small municipalities with associated mandates across the land.

What you don't know Pashtu you infidel teacher in Montana!?!


George Rebane

PaulE 847pm - Whether or not Trump was elected president through divine intercession is a matter of personal belief and not a matter of public policy. Your attempt to drag such expressions of religious freedom into the policy arena smacks of snark.

Lisa Page testimony released:

"According to Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code ... and, in essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute."

It was previously reported that a chart had been shared inside the FBI which did not include "gross negligence" on the list of potential criminal violations that Clinton could’ve been charged with. In front of Congress last year, an email containing the chart was reportedly shown to the assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division Bill Priestap. He testified that he didn't know why the email said, “DOJ not willing to charge this.” Page’s testimony indicates that the decision not to charge Clinton with gross negligence came directly from the DOJ.

Page’s testimony raises further questions related to the decision not to charge Clinton with any crimes, including gross negligence, following a lengthy FBI investigation into her email practices that potentially put classified information at risk. After the revelation that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on a Phoenix tarmac in June 2016, while Hillary Clinton was running for president, Lynch refused to recuse herself from the case while also saying she would accept Comey’s decision on what charges to bring against Clinton. But Page’s testimony indicates that DOJ had shut the door on gross negligence.


Interestingto note that any conviction under the statue would preclude the guilty from ever holding a federally elected office.


Old clay face herself, Trump's spokesthing, drug expression of religion into the Trump arena like a cat with a dead chipmunk long before Paul even dreamed of it. "God wanted Trump to be president" She smacks of snark.

Don Bessee

So the trolls would have you believe that an expression of faith that the WH spokesperson defended sends our faithful to a time out and all the snowflakes run to the crayons and playdough and their dabs @ 908!

Thanks! I could not have illuminated your inner self's better.



"It's hard to take seriously that Trump was installed as president because of some divine Christian intervention in our election process Really you don't believe that do you?"

There you go again, Punch.

I'm not a born a'gin Christian, a preacher's daughter, talking to a Christian reporter. And you just don't get the Born A'gin talk.

It isn't a divine intervention as much as a "G-d works in mysterious ways" statement between true believers.

Again, by your latest misconstruing, it's clear you still don't Grok Christians.

For example, Rush Limbaugh used to say he had "Talent on Loan from Gawd"... was that a boast of superiority because of God's particular gracing of his talent, or was it tweak of people like you from someone who knew everyone in the know would accept it as a standard view... everything is on loan from Gawd?

Bill Tozer


Bull shit. Punchy was freaking out and going anti-Christian nuts when he thought that Syrian Christians would be allowed in during the temporary Muslim ban. Bullshit. There is a genocide against Christians going on in Iraq and Syria and Punchy dances a gig. He and Steve can hate on Christians all they want....free speech and all, but don’t dare try to blame anything on Sara Sanders’s comments. Punchy is a hater and been hating for a long time....call it a pre-existing condition. It’s who he is. I call Bull shit!


Toes 1039pm

Naw, it wasn't Punchy freaking out. It was Punchy seeing a weak spot and throwing a punch. And another one. And another one.

Only he didn't understand what he was punching. As usual.

Lock her up?

Bill Tozer

1) No, no lock her up? It’s too late. And I don’t hold out much hope, despite strong evidence of violations of statues as written and defined on the books, that Comey will be brought to justice for Obstruction of Justice and others for abuse of power. Basically, there are no real consequences for those types.

2) belief system: hot off the press: one more Christian, one less Chinese.

“Over the past five years, police say he has also been arrested on charges of possessing drug paraphernalia, burglary, battery of an officer and resisting arrest. In the months leading up to the killing, he was released from the Santa Clara County Jail twice.

For their part, ICE had ordered Carranza to be detained on several occasions, but California’s sanctuary policies prevented him from being turned over to authorities. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for Thursday.”


Hmmm. What is it with these battery on a police officers types? Reminds me of that case 3 weeks ago.

“Since then, ICE had issued four separate detainers for him related to various arrests including suspicion of driving under the influence, battery on a peace officer and unknown probation violations.

ICE said detainers were issued to Napa County Jail in 2014, 2015 and 2016 while Sonoma County Jail received one in 2016. None of the detainers were honored by jail staff.

John Solomon: Did we need a special counsel probe?

“It’s a reflection of us still not knowing,” Page told Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) when questioned about texts she and Strzok exchanged in May 2017 as Robert Mueller was being named special counsel to take over the Russia investigation.

With that statement, Page acknowledged a momentous fact: After nine months of using some of the most awesome surveillance powers afforded to U.S. intelligence, the FBI still had not made a case connecting Trump or his campaign to Russia’s election meddling.

Page opined further, acknowledging “it still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing” to connect Trump and Russia, no matter what Mueller or the FBI did.

“As far as May of 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” she said at another point.

It might take a few seconds for the enormity of Page’s statements to sink in. After all, she isn’t just any FBI lawyer. She was a lead on the Russia case when it started in summer 2016, and she helped it transition to Mueller through summer 2017.

For those who might cast doubt on the word of a single FBI lawyer, there’s more.

Shortly after he was fired, ex-FBI Director James Comey told the Senate there was not yet evidence to justify investigating Trump for colluding with Russia. “When I left, we did not have an investigation focused on President Trump,” Comey testified.

And Strzok, the counterintelligence boss and leader of the Russia probe, texted Page in May 2017 that he was reluctant to join Mueller’s probe and leave his senior FBI post because he feared “there’s no big there, there.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general asked Strzok shortly before he was fired from the FBI what he meant by that text, and he offered a most insightful answer.

Strzok said he wasn’t certain there was a “broad, coordinated effort” to hijack the election and that the evidence of Trump campaign aides talking about getting dirt on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton from Russians might have been just a “bunch of opportunists” talking to heighten their importance.

Strzok added that, while he raised the idea of impeachment in some of his texts to Page, “I am, again, was not, am not convinced or certain that it will,” he told the inspector general.

So, by the words of Comey, Strzok and Page, we now know that the Trump Justice Department — through Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — unleashed the Mueller special counsel probe before the FBI could validate a connection between Trump and Russia.

Which raises the question: If there was no concrete evidence of collusion, why did we need a special counsel?



re: BillT@9:31AM

The problem is that they just haven't looked long enough yet. There's bound to be something, anything, to defeat Orange Hitler. Just keep looking. I feel it in me bones that there is something out there. Keep digging. Investigation without end, amen.

Heck, I wouldn't mind hearing what 'collusion' even means in a legal sense.

scenes 946am - Re 'collusion', this might help.
