Little Lindseys gonna issue another subpoena. Not that anything is likely to ever come of it, but Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted this on Sunday:
Grahams latest bit of Kabuki Theater came after the former Special Counsel had an op-ed about the Roger Stone case published in the Washington Post under his name. No one knows who actually wrote op-ed for Mr. Mueller, but obviously someone did since he clearly demonstrated during his House testimony last year that he is barely able to put two sentences together without reading from a prepared text.
In any event, Mueller wont be shaking in his house slippers at the prospect of getting a subpoena from Senator All-Hat-And-No-Cattle. Graham talks a good came from time to time mainly during appearances on Fox News with Captain Tick Tock, Sean Hannity but his follow-through leaves a lot to be desired. In fact, its pretty much nonexistent.
Two weeks ago, I told you that the next step by the BLM/Antifa domestic terrorists would be to come after your churches. This weekend, we saw this:
The Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama was burned Friday night.
On Saturday, an attacker drove his car into a church in Ocala, Florida and released an incendiary device to set it on fire while worshipers were inside.
Saturday night, the 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California almost burned to the ground due to a suspiciously-set fire.
These burnings follow a wave of incidents over the past few weeks in which BLM thugs have invaded churches around the country to disrupt their services and attempt to goad parishioners into fights.
Theyre coming for your churches. Make sure your own church employs appropriate security measures.
Speaking of suspicious fires The Naval landing vessel Bonhomme Richard was the scene of a mysterious explosion and fire on Sunday in San Diego, where it is docked:
Witnesses reported a loud explosion followed by a huge fire that broke out in several different areas of the 800 foot-long ship. As of this morning, it is a mystery what could have caused such a huge explosion and fire on a ship that typically does not carry significant explosive ordinance.
From a report at the Navy Times:
While the precise cause remained unknown Sunday night, [Rear Admiral Philip] Sobeck said there was nothing toxic in the ship, and that the black smoke billowing from the amphib all day was caused by office and berthing items burning.
The fire is believed to have started below those spaces, in the lower cargo hold of the ship, known as the Deep V, Sobeck said.
It is a huge open area where you store a lot of (Marine Corps) equipment and everything else, he said. Thats where we believe it was started.
Bonhomme Richard had 1 million gallons of fuel onboard but it is well below where any heat source is, Sobeck said.
Sobeck noted that some sort of internal explosion had occurred earlier in the day aboard the ship, but said that what we cannot ascertain is what that explosion was caused from.
Oh. Given the highly suspicious nature of this incident, you can be sure that you will hear little if anything more about it from the corrupt news media.
Great idea! But what idiot would buy it? The New York Times has a story this morning alleging that President Trump considered the potential sale of U.S. territory Puerto Rico as its Marxist leaders attempted to shake down the federal government in the wake of Hurricane Maria:
From a report at The Hill:
President Trump mulled selling Puerto Rico as the territory struggled in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in 2017, former acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke told The New York Times. Duke, who served in the role for four months, told the Times on Friday that she was shocked when the president raised the suggestion of divesting or selling Puerto Rico.
The presidents initial ideas were more of as a businessman, you know, she said. Can we outsource the electricity? Can we sell the island? You know, or divest of that asset?
The newspaper noted that Duke said the idea of selling of Puerto Rico was never seriously considered or discussed after Trump proposed it.
Ok, so, this person was shocked when the President, in a brainstorming meeting, momentarily raised the possibility of divesting the U.S. from the constant, incessant Marxist money pit that is Puerto Rico. This is supposed to be a major scandal. And of course, if you are an economic ignoramus working for the New York Time or The Hill, you no doubt believe that to be the case.
But Trump has the mind of a businessman, not a corrupt politician or corrupt fake journalist, and the purpose of a brainstorming session in a crisis is to guess what? consider all possible plans of action. Given the chronically, utterly corrupt nature of that islands government, why in the hell wouldnt a sane U.S. Administration consider selling the damn thing to the highest bidder?
The divesting of a corrupt, constant money drain on the nation that has no true intrinsic value to the country as a whole would in fact be the intelligent thing to do from a business standpoint. But what nitwit would buy the place for any amount of money that would make a deal worth doing? Maybe Venezuela or Cuba, whose socialist governments are equally corrupt and simpatico to Puerto Ricos, but hey, those countries are flat, dead broke.
Thus, the idea, as good and merited as it was, was quickly discarded, as the Times admits.
Just another fake news hit piece from the most corrupt newspaper on earth.
That is all.
China would take it, in a heartbeat.
So would Russia.
That id didn’t happen or even considered, is proof enough that the idea was just people blowing smoke up their ‘assets’.
—I’ve always thought we should give PR back to Spain—look at the unjust way we got it—
Wonder if they would take it back....
Wonder if they would take it back....
Cut PR loose.
Excellent idea. Thing is, no one in his right mind would buy it.
How about just giving them independence and getting rid of them?
China woukd take it?
They are welcome to it.
What use is PR to America?
Apart from draining tens of billions of dollars every year especially after the hurricane?
The leftists are the ones who want independence for PR.
As long as we get them off our hands.
Nobody needs colonies. This is not 1860.
Why are churches burning and selling Puerto Rico?
Who would buy it after it’s burnt?
It will be a waste of time to subpoena Mr. Mueller. His dementia is going to require hours of questioning and repeating the questions. He has no knowledge of anything because he cannot remember anything except what his aides tell him.
What are we supposed to think about or acquiesce to this week FReepers? Dunno. Lets tune in to the programming so they can direct us.
Such as it is, the press has become the greatest power within the Western World, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and judiciary. One would like to ask; by whom has it been elected and to whom is it responsible? - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Good morning America...how are ya?
Trump likely joking re: the sale of PR (jokes about swapping Greenland for PR were all over the Internet).
The Chinese likely weren’t joking with their generals talking about how they should sink an American ship or two: they have a history of directly stating the nature of their planned aggression before acting out on it.
And the war on churches (two-pronged from the “pandemic” and street rioters) has clearly been picking up speed:
“China would take it? They are welcome to it. What use is PR to America?”
Are you really serious?
Such a coincidence the Puerto Rico story comes out after Goya CEO supports Trump and radical boycott fails.
They might as long as its debts were dissolved.....they would get a developed country with a generally Spanish speaking populace and a world class radio telescope. Developed ports and airport. Farms and generally a 365 day a year growing season. Spain would take it back in an instant!
We should grant all of the “territories” immediate freedom, with a 5-year payout just to help them get on their feet. There is no reason for our country to still own “territories”, and we don’t want them as states.
Yeah, the scum come after dark to burn our churches. They think they are getting away with it, but one day they WILL answer for it, that I can GAR-RUN-TEE YOU!!! Come to our church during the day and see how it turns out that is my offer to them. 90% of the men are armed!! And a good deal of the women, including my little lady.
