    Jesse Kelly® Verified account @JesseKellyDC This is the first time I've thought the GOP will lose the House in the midterms. If Trump signs this #omnibus bill, we're through. I suspect Trump does not realize how many people have tolerated his antics solely because he was doing conservative things. He's about to find out. 10:33 AM - 22 Mar 2018 402 Retweets 974 Likes I get the feeling that Washington believes the current unrest is just another Tea Party they can ignore, ridicule, co-opt, or shut down.

    There is nothing that expressly forbids a line-item veto. It is a common business practice. It is time for Trump to just DO IT. Refuse to spend on useless things. Obamacare, for example, is a multi-trillion -dollar failure.

    “Absolutely, there is a deep state, because the deep state is the intelligence agencies that do not have oversight,” he said. “Only eight people in Congress know what they’re doing, and traditionally, those eight people have been a rubber stamp to let the intelligence communities do whatever they want. There is no skeptic among the eight people that are supposedly overseeing the intelligence community.” “John Brennan and James Clapper were doing whatever the hell they wanted, without any judicial warrants, and I think there were numerous people in the Obama administration who were using intelligence — one, to try to...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. (Photo: Giffords)National gun control organizations still use the former presidential candidate and secretary of state to garner attention for events and fundraisers. Hillary Clinton, who received the quick public endorsement from both Everytown and Giffords during her failed 2016 bid for the White House, still weighs in on gun politics and is feted by the groups. This week, the umbrella organization backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg emailed invitations to attend some 800 Everytown-sponsored March for Our Lives gun control events signed by Clinton. “I have...

    "Several recent stories regarding Trump’s space policy has prompted David Livingston to quickly schedule a Bob Zimmerman appearance on The Space Show for Monday, March 19, 7 pm (Pacific). The show will last at least ninety minutes. David especially wanted my analysis of Trump’s comments about the Falcon Heavy and SpaceX and how those comments have the big space contractors Boeing and Lockheed Martin quaking in their boots. Their fear and terror is further compounded by the present lack of a NASA administrator, which is made even worse by the announcement that the acting interim administrator is retiring at the...

FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom told FNC's Maria Bartiromo on 'Sunday Morning Futures' that "high-ranking people throughout the government... had a plot to not have Hillary Clinton indicted, so that she could remain the flawed candidate that she was." Kallstrom said the "plot" to fix the 2016 election goes "right to the top," meaning President Obama and former CIA director John Brennan Kallstrom cited text messages from FBI counterintelligence chief Peter Stzrok which appear...

    “This is much larger than just texts between two FBI agents.” A high-ranking FBI official confirms a number of the missing 50,000 FBI text messages — as well as other text and email messages among FBI brass — reportedly discussed initiating physical harm to President Donald Trump. The FBI official urged the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — which oversees the U.S. Secret Service — to launch an investigation of the Justice Department, the FBI and all text messages missing and otherwise that threatened the President.

    All those Very Confident Statements about what was contained in the Carter Page FISA application may be put to the test sometime soon. USA Today reports that DOJ may release parts of the Carter Page FISA application that so far has been only described in the Devin Nunes #ReleaseTheMemo and the Adam Schiff response: In dueling memos released last month, Republican members — led by California Rep. Devin Nunes — alleged that Justice and FBI officials abused their authority in targeting the former campaign adviser by improperly relying on an unsubstantiated dossier prepared by a former British spy.

    We're all expecting and anticipating Hillary's descent into madness. Given that, I'm thinking a tie-in to Lady Macbeth might be appropriate. No time soon, perhaps. Months, years? Yet madness will overtake her I think. With apologies to William Shakespeare... At the beginning of Act 5 of Bubba Macbeth, Lady Hillary, who has apparently dropped out of the story is brought back upon the stage that we may see how she too pays the penalty of her crimes. The strong will that enabled her to defy her woman's nature has broken down utterly; left alone in her castle while Bubba is...

  • Sessions Should Fire McCabe (VANITY)

    I think that Sessions should fire McCabe right away. That way McCabe won’t be eligible to get a government pension right away (at age 50) but will have to wait until his normal retirement age (a long time). However, if McCabe later FULLY cooperates with criminal investigations into the Mueller/Comey/Rosenstein/Lynch/Clinton/Holder/Obama criminal enterprises and their various co-conspirators then he can be technically “rehired” for a very short period after which he can go out on an immediate retirement.
  • Midterms Going to Be Much Worse Than GOP Can Imagine Because of Tech...Targeting of Conservatives

    03/15/2018 9:02:32 AM PDT · by MNDude · 38 replies
    Niall Ferguson: The midterms are going to be worse, a lot worse. Because never again will the network platforms in Silicon Valley allow them to use them as Donald Trump’s campaign used them in 2016. The sound of heads exploding on November the 9th of 2016 was deafening in California. They couldn’t believe that Facebook advertising had been so vital to Trump’s success. Which it was. I don’t think he would have become president without Facebook. As people think more and more about this they will I think begin to grasp the power of the platforms. I think the Russia...

    Deep State is playing offense now and has moved into its next phase of action. The most prominent Reddit board fighting Deep State, CBTS_Stream, which had been building rapidly in readers, was just shut down. The page says: This community has been banned This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the prohibition of content that encourages or incites violence and the posting of personal and confidential information. Banned 13 minutes ago. This is totally bogus. There is no content on the page that “incited violence.” Evidently, Deep State is calling the shots on Reddit...

  • Don Lemon: The Term 'Globalist' Is Racist, Anti-Semitic

    RCP Video ^ | 3-10-2018 | Ian Schwartz
    CNN host Don Lemon addressed what he called the "ugly history" of the term 'globalist' "and how far-right extremists use it to suggest racial and anti-Semitic ideas" on the Thursday edition of CNN Tonight. Lemon argued because people like Steve Bannon and Alex Jones use the term that a dog whistle is automatically attached to it. He said it is popular with the 'alt-right' and anti-Semites. "That word globalist keeps popping up, it sounds like a pretty mainstream term, a description of an economic and political ideology," Lemon said. "But it's more than that. It's also become a dog whistle...

    In the United States, we’ve arrived at a pair of mutually exclusive convictions: that liberal, capitalist democracies are guaranteed by their nature to succeed and that in our Trumpist moment they seem to be failing in deeply unsettling ways. For liberals — and by this I mean inheritors of the long liberal tradition, not specifically those who might also be called progressives — efforts to square these two notions have typically combined expressions of high anxiety with reassurances that, if we only have the right attitude, everything will set itself aright. Hanging on and hoping for the best is certainly...
