Mueller Report Fizzles. Prepare For The Reckoning.

Original Article

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Now that Mueller has concluded his witch hunt, it is time for Barr to investigate. It is time for President Trump to release all the 302´s and FISA details. America needs to see what the Obama administration was perpetrating on this country.

Trump has been patiently waiting to unleash his counter offensive, which he had to do until the Mueller investigation was complete. Had he responded earlier, the Dems and the MSM would have accused him of interfering in the investigation. Get ready. The hammer is going to fall. Sit back and enjoy.

I don´t want to see any gloating. I don´t want any witty articles. I want justice.

This was a patently fraudulent investigation in an attempt to frame and remove a duly elected President of the United States. The people who perpetrated and perpetuated this 2-year long and $30-million plus fraud need to be indicted and incarcerated. That´s the ONLY thing that will stop such evil games. And it´s the only thing that will bring real justice to this country and to this unjustly maligned President.

And yes, everyone maliciously prosecuted and convicted of process crimes unrelated to the original assertions should be immediately pardoned and compensated for the damage done to their lives.

DoJ and FBI people, present and former need to be prosecuted for FISA abuse, and fraudulent use of the whole NSA system to harm a Presidential candidate, and the fraudulent effort to use the Spec. Pros as a political hitman.

Legal jeopardy for those folks should be serious, and should includ Rosenstein for signing multiple times on to a fraudulent FISA request.

So, just what did we get for the $30 million?

Zip zero nada nothing nein squat.

Dims, prepare for your day to reckoning for this fraud. Who do we start with? Comey? Brennan? Strozk? Page? Lynch? Holdie? Valjar? Riceroni? Muellie? Hoskinen? Lerner? Billary? BJ? Obie? Panetta? McCain (yeah, I know, he´s gone)? Podesta? Pelousi? Schoomer? Various members of the msm?

Gen. Flynn, Gates, Manafort, Papadopoulos, and Stone et al should now be pardoned and given all the help and money they need for putting their lives back together. Those who destroyed their lives must pay.

Dims and msm, the Big Ugly has arrived.

Friends, I’m still antsy about all of this. Do you remember back during the Lewinski affair, how we were told by the media that there was a hug bombshell gotcha moment in Clinton’s grand jury testimony which was going to be devastating? So we all got suckered into watching it and there was nothing?

I’m praying that we aren’t getting led by the nose again only to be shocked and slammed with something awful when the report is finally released.

If there’s no evidence of criminal activity in this report, there’s no way they should make it public. The Democrats have wasted so much tax payer time and money, there’s no way that they should now get to use the product of this sham investigation as oppo research. They need to be held accountable, all of them, the media included, for what they’ve put this country through. Time for Trump to take the gloves off, and go on the offensive.

Discovery is taking place here in Oklahoma, home of the I´m Drawing Muhammad ranch. Carter Page´s civil suit and tort case against just about everybody is ongoing and the few search engine articles about DNC lawyers winning trying to shut it down are bogus. It isn´t shut down. The MSM is silent because any more reporting they do, whether accurate or fake will help Carter´s case and they know it because they are named, along with individual reporters. If Carter wins and if Sandmann wins, Carter will make Sandmann´s 500 million dollar win against WaPO and CNN look like an old, rusted, useless Mattel Hot Wheels compared to a brand new and very real Bugatti. I certainly hope they both win. THAT will be the reckoning.

We´ll see.

Fortunately the America people have become rather used to government waste and fraud so nobody will be too outraged about what Mueller has done. If the average government slug is given an open-ended job with no specific requirements, no budget and no deadline, who else in that endless quagmire would have performed differently? This is status quo for Mueller´s type.

We won´t get a refund of course but seeing Clinton´s, Comey´s, Obama´s, McCain´s and a dozen other real crook´s names dragged through the mud and sent to prison would be very satisfying.

Also, various writers and fake news creators at the NYT, the WaPo, CNN and others should be imprisoned for their disgusting scandal-a-week campaign perpetrated against the President.

People like the smarmy Chris Wallace who try to salvage something from the Mueller report, by talking about ´´Process´´ crimes, should consider the fact that all the people snared by Mueller were guilty of their crimes whether Trump was President, or not. Would they have been investigated and prosecuted if Hillary had won? Of course not.

Bottom line: President Trump is clean and innocent.

The Mueller investigation was, indeed, a witch hunt. In the interest of transparency, I would like an investigation into who was involved with Hillary and the others involved in propagating the Mueller witch hunt. Name the democrat congress men and women who conspired against the President and the American people, by trying to perpetrate a coup against the President of the U.S. Just who, in the congress, was working behind the scenes to commit sedition? That is where transparency is critical!

We knew it from the start. It was a fake investigation conducted by fake investigators at the behest of fake leaders and reported by fake journalists working at fake news organizations.

This isn´t governing. This isn´t justice. There should be a major league reality check, with consequences, for the people that pushed this.

What a total complete waste.

I, frankly, am absolutely astonished they found NOTHING to hang on Trump. He is a very successful businessman running deals all the time. To be doing that and done nothing criminally questionable seems almost superhuman. How many politicians or businessmen could survive such a deep dive into their affairs? Trump, as far as legal issues are concerned, is squeaky clean.

Yes, the dems will continue on the attack because they have nothing else to offer (Socialism? REALLY??) and their candidates are a joke. In fact, I can´t think of a dem that can be taken as a serious contender, especially in the face of Trump´s various successes.

But who is going to take dem investigations seriously? Sure the media, whose own status is circling the bowl and as who are as desperate as the dems, will HAVE TO jump on board. They too have nothing else to offer. But few listen to the media except committed dems looking for their daily fix of hate and hope (for lightning to strike Trump).

After almost 2 years, $30 million, and a rabid team of investigators WHAT is likely to be found? A blue dress? Oops, that was a dem.

I believe that Mueller originally welcomed the nomination of William Barr. For Barr would have surely protected his old buddy Mueller, right? But when Barr took the job, he had to have informed Mueller that he was not going to protect the kabuki any longer. IMO, Mueller fully intended to drag this out for at least another year.

I think it has shocked the Swamp that Trump has an actual AG who is loyal to HIM, and is going to do the job Trump needs doing. You can see by the reactions of democrats in DC that they know what is coming, they know Barr is not going to let them slide. I am cautiously optimistic about Trump´s administration for the first time in about a year now.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

China’s Holdings of U.S. Treasury Securities Hit 22-Month Low 10 replies

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination.

Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
