Their message to Iran: Don’t take Trump’s bait. Stay calm. Conversations between former Obama officials and Iranian government officials have been ongoing since November 2016. Th Obama alumni are also reportedly passing messages from the Iranian regime to congressional Democrats:

Of course they are. Fits perfectly with obama's program to hobble our nation's ability to influence world affairs. Dare we hope that our intel services are following the action?

The Iranian regime will probably figure out pretty quickly that these people aren't half as smart as they think they are and certainly aren't smart enough to be telling them how to deal with Trump. He is usually about 3 steps ahead of anything Obama, Hillary and their ilk have tried to do. It's fun to watch, it would be more fun to watch any or all of them scrambling to stay out of jail. If and when that happens I hope they start at the top and work their way down the chain of command.

Since they are working advising a foreign government, they must register as agents of that government. Failure to do so is a crime. Specifically the crime that Manafort is accused of.

Is there any avenue of leadership that the Dems are not tring to block? If they cannot be held legally accountable for messing in foreign affairs, can we not name every one of them and bandy their names about so they cannot hide on the darkness?

With border crossings at their highest level in more than 12 years and congressional Democrats intent on blocking desperately needed humanitarian aid and border security resources, the Trump Administration is once again left as the last line of defense at the border. On Thursday, the administration rolled out a new policy aimed at encouraging Mexico to do more to crack down on the thousands of Central American migrants passing through their country on the way to the United States to claim asylum. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan described the three efforts the United States wants to see from Mexico:

All your interests are belong to us…. There was previous discussion of how Beijing would respond if/when their economic interests were challenged. In essence, the prediction was that China would drop the panda mask and revert back to their oppressive totalitarian tendencies.It is an interesting dynamic because the more the communist state moves to punish and control western business interests, the less likely any western investment flows into China. It’s a simple question: Why would anyone want to engage a business relationship inside a totalitarian system that could move at any moment to control your business?

In his muddled, obfuscatory farewell remarks, Special Counsel Robert Mueller strongly suggested that, although he and his cohort of Hillary Clinton acolytes had reached no conclusion as to whether President Trump had obstructed justice, Congress should address that question by means of the impeachment “process.” Why? Because Team Mueller had not been able to “exonerate” the President. But exoneration is a non-legal standard which completely inverts and perverts our system of justice which places the burden on the prosecution to prove its case.In every criminal trial across America, the judge instructs the jury that the burden of

Opening his speech to British parliamentarians in 2011, President Barack Obama said, “I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall." It is an honor that will not be extended to President Trump next week during his first state visit to Britain, one of a number of differences from the trips made by his predecessors. British and American officials have played down concerns about protests and insist that Trump is being afforded every bit of the usual hospitality — from dinner with the queen to bilateral talks with Theresa May, the prime minister.

What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”Markle has since moved to England after marrying Prince Harry, but apparently, her distaste for President Trump remains,

In a half-hour at the lectern, his remarks ranged from emotional tributes to his audience and their personal endurance to condemnations of President Donald Trump.“It’s wrong and it is immoral what they’re doing,” Biden said of the Trump administration.

President Trump and his defenders can successfully attack former Special Counsel Robert Mueller or congressional Democrats on impeachment – but not both. The independent voters who will decide the 2020 election don’t have time for multiple sets of arguments. Moreover, independent voters have limited interest in all things political. So the president and his advocates should keep it simple and focus on Congress, not Mueller, who resigned Wednesday. Mueller didn’t say anything when he spoke to journalists Wednesday that hadn’t already appeared in his report. That was the point of his news conference.
