The status of the Eastern District of Virginia case against former partner of Michael Flynn, Bijan Rafiekian is bizarre. Apparently U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has not engaged into this case, and the current status is a mess. The head-scratching FARA case was tenuous from the outset as the prosecution was arguing a rather odd legal interpretation of FARA statutes; and now the DOJ could be handed a dismissal, even if the jury returns a guilty verdict. Yes, when you stretch legal interpretation beyond evidence, it’s a mess.

Democrats in Virginia have declared they will snub the President of the United States if he attends a commemorative event scheduled for later this month. The White House has not made any official announcements about President Trump’s plans to attend the 400th anniversary of American democracy, to be held in Jamestown on July 30. But Virginia Democrats have not missed the opportunity to grandstand, defiantly announcing they will essentially put partisan politics ahead of America’s heritage.
Ocasio-Cortez says Trump's bid to

"All you need to do is hear what the President did this week to know this is not about immigration at all. Because once you start telling American citizens to quote 'go back to your own countries,' this tells you that this President's policies are not about immigration, it's about ethnicity and racism," Ocasio-Cortez said during a town hall on immigration held in her district in Queens, New York, in reference to Trump's tweeted racist attacks at her and three other minority congresswomen known as "The Squad." Her remarks are nonsense. Is she trying to tell us that were the border surgers pouring over the border without papers Caucasian,

The French movie Hiroshima Mon Amour is based on human memory and forgetfulness as recounted by two lovers. The tale of the congresswoman who calls herself Ilhan Omar is a tale of an anti-Semite bred-in-the-bone corruptocrat whose rise in political power rests very largely on complicity by the media’s airbrushing of her history because they thought this physically attractive African Moslem “refugee” was just the ticket to defeat Donald Trump. The media counts on our forgetfulness and ignorance.
Donald Trump Jr. Savages Michael Avenatti:

Donald Trump Jr. trolled Michael Avenatti on Saturday, sharing a photo on social media of himself with the befallen lawyer’s ex-wife at a recent event. “Hey Creepy Porn Lawyer, appreciate you flagging this,” Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter with a photo posing with Lisa Storie at a joint event for the Lincoln Club of Orange County and the New Majority. “By the way, really enjoyed meeting your ex wife at my speech last night. It was a packed house unlike your presser.” The event was in support of Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for Donald J. Trump for President the Republican National Committee (RNC).

About 15 years ago, I convinced one of my doctors to prescribe some generic Wellbutrin (bupropion XL ) for me. The product had been advertised as a game changer for depression. My doctor, at that time, was reluctant at first; but he eventually succumbed to my repeated requests and wrote the prescription.

Author Stephen King took to Twitter Friday to express his disdain for President Trump, telling his five million Twitter followers that he hopes to fire the “vile, racist, and incompetent bag of guts and waters” in 2020. “I think we all agree that Donald Trump is a vile, racist, and incompetent bag of guts and waters. How happy I would be to tell him ‘YOU’RE FIRED’ next November,” King tweeted. (Tweet) The Pet Sematary author has a history of lashing out against Trump and Republicans.

There is a new trend in politics that’s a hit with all the kids. It’s been around for a while, but was never really as popular as it is right now. So, in the interest of science, I’ve decided to hop on “The Squad” train and try thinking like a progressive member of Congress. How hard could it be? I was driving to the grocery store the other day and the person in the left turn lane ahead of me did not turn when there was clearly enough room for him to go. I sat there, angry, and then I asked myself, “What would Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez do?”

"Blexit" and "Jexit" -- those are the movements by conservative activist Candace Owens and me, respectively, to get blacks and Jews to leave the Democratic Party and support President Donald Trump. Meanwhile, last week was another great week for President Trump. That must be why the Trump-hating national media have turned a Sunday tweet by the president into the biggest news headline in America. Trump's achievements were so fantastic in the past week that they had to once again use a tweet to try to destroy him. I'm betting you haven't heard a word about these Trump accomplishments in the mainstream news: -- The Dow crossed 27,000

Girls Jeffrey Epstein Abused?
Posted by Pluperfect 7/21/2019 5:19:47 AM Post Reply
Since Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest last week, we’ve been inundated with disturbing revelations about how he allegedly abused underage girls for years in plain sight. The case is full of horrifying details, from Epstein’s elite social circle, to his private “Pedophile Island,” to his friendship with Donald Trump. But the part of the story that’s often missing is the voices of Epstein’s accusers. This is partly by design. Epstein and his lawyers have worked for years to keep his victims out of the press. According to the Miami Herald, Epstein’s accusers have already filed two-dozen lawsuits against him, some dating back at least as far as 2009.

Elon just admitted something that is getting very little coverage — and no explanation. He announced that Tesla will no longer be selling the “affordable” $35,000 Model 3 he promised would be Tesla’s first mass-market electric car. Like so many of Elon’s promises, that one’s out the window, too. The price of the least expensive Tesla just rose to $39,000. Well, technically $38,990 — to make it go down easier. That’s still a $4k decrease in “affordability” — and a reality check. Elon is admitting that electric cars aren’t mass-market cars.

LONDON — Boris Johnson, the far-ahead front-runner to become Britain’s prime minister this week, waved a vacuum-packed fish over his head and railed at the European Union. A kipper smoker on the Isle of Man, Johnson said Wednesday, “has had his costs massively increased by Brussels bureaucrats who have insisted that each herring fillet must be accompanied by” — he paused to reach for another prop — “a plastic ice pillow! Pointless, expensive, environmentally damaging, health and safety.” The audience roared. Johnson, populist charmer, always gets a laugh.
Race cards? Deal me out replies

Just when you think our political culture can’t sink any lower, the race card gets tossed onto the table, as those who know how to play that game reach from the gutter to portray themselves as enlightened. It’s a tired old tactic, yet in the right hands it remains regrettably effective. More than 30 years ago, in one of his most inglorious moments, the late Ted Kennedy went onto the Senate floor, ostensibly to philosophically oppose Ronald Reagan’s nomination of Judge Robert Bork to the Supreme Court. Fair enough. They surely had philosophical differences.

The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) are mobilizing thousands of volunteers in more than a dozen battleground states, including a handful that President Trump lost in 2016, as they seek to expand the electoral map ahead of 2020. Trump Victory, a joint operation comprised of the Trump campaign, the RNC and state Republican parties, kicked off a “National Week of Training” on Friday in a bid to train more than 6,000 volunteers and register voters in 14 states that Republicans have set their sights on for 2020. At the same time, the committee is adding to its roster of state directors

Three significant anniversaries passed this week. Only two have truly been noted. First, of course, is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing on Saturday, July 20. The second was the 20th anniversary of the deaths of John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife Carolyn Bessette and her sister Lauren Bessette in a small plane Kennedy was flying to Martha’s Vineyard. Only one of those deserves the hagiographic treatment both have been given, but I’ll get to that later. The third was also a 50th anniversary, one that passed just two days after JFK Jr.’s and was, in many ways, related.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., suggested on Saturday that her presidential campaign plan to combat climate change was analogous to former President John F. Kennedy's efforts to put a man on the moon. "The Apollo 11 mission is a perfect reminder that if we dream big enough, fight hard enough, and invest in American ingenuity, we can accomplish incredible things," she tweeted after promoting her "Green Manufacturing Plan." "In fact, we can protect our planet for generations to come," Warren added. Her comments came on the 50th anniversary of the first time man walked on the moon.

Buzz Aldrin may have been the second man to walk on the moon, but he was the first to knock a troll into outer space. The famed Apollo astronaut faced possible battery charges back in September 2002 after he was confronted by a moon-landing conspiracy theorist who claimed that his famous moonwalk with Neil Armstrong never happened. "Why don't you swear on the Bible that you walked on the moon?" Aldrin was asked incessantly by the heckler as he tried to go about his daily business.
