Swamp Grass Grassley – Bumbling Tool of Rinos and Dems Attacking Trump

by /rickwells.us

{ /rickwells.us } ~ Senator Charles Grassley is the embodiment of the kind of do-nothing, tottering old fools that have infested the Republican Party… and which permit the globalist Democrats and establishment thugs to run all them over. He’s like an unarmed cop holding up his hand and blowing a whistle to stop a terrorist. He’s useless and isn’t handling things with the sense of urgency the deserve. Judge Jeanine is polite but asks questions that expose the simpleton for what he is. She asks what he thinks about the letter to AG Jeff Sessions from eleven Republican House Members, calling for him to investigate Crooked liar-Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Lynch and others. She says, “Here we are, almost a year and a half into the Trump administration and they’re still asking Sessions to do what they’ve been asking him to do for almost a year.” He plays dumb, or maybe he’s not really playing at all, saying, “I wouldn’t be surprised that some of that might be going on and we don’t really know about it, because of the traditions within the Justice Department and the FBI not to talk about ongoing investigations.” He says everybody involved in law enforcement should follow the facts where they take them…  https://rickwells.us/swamp-grassley-attacking-trump/

FEC Sued for Ignoring liar-Clinton-DNC Money Laundering Operation

by Alice Greene

{ punchingbagpost.com } ~ A pro-Trump PAC is suing the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for ignoring its complaint regarding a money laundering scheme… that allowed liar-Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign to bypass legal donation limits. In a complaint filed last December, the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) claimed the liar-Hillary Victory Fund instructed big-name donors to send money to state parties, which would send that money to the DNC. In some cases, the entire transaction took less than 24 hours. This method enabled deep-pocketed donors to circumvent federal campaign donation limits by sending money to state and local organizations rather than donating directly to liar-Clinton, even though the money ended up going back to her campaign. The FEC in December said it received the CDP’s complaint and would conduct an investigation, but, like most crimes involving Crooked liar-H, nothing happened… http://punchingbagpost.com/fec-sued-for-ignoring-clinton-dnc-money-laundering-operation/?pb_list=pb_list

Iran threatens to ‘annihilate’ Israel, as Hezbollah boasts of reach of rockets

by timesofisrael.com

{ timesofisrael.com } ~ The head of the Iranian army on Saturday said Iranian forces were working to “annihilate” Israel… and predicted they would achieve success within 25 years. The threats from the Commander of Iran’s Army Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi come amid almost daily warnings of conflict from Tehran and Jerusalem, heightened by an alleged Israeli strike on an Iranian base in Syria earlier in the month. “When the arrogant powers create a sanctuary for the Zionist regime to continue survival, we shouldn’t allow one day to be added to the ominous and illegitimate life of this regime,” Mousavi told a ceremony in Tehran on Saturday, according to the Fars news agency… https://www.timesofisrael.com/as-iran-threatens-to-annihilate-israel-hezbollah-boast-of-reach-of-rockets/?utm_source=The+Times+of+Israel+Daily+Edition&utm_campaign=b8cfcd7a03-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_22&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_adb46cec92-b8cfcd7a03-54638825

As tensions rise, Zarif says he doesn’t believe Iran heading to war with Israel

by JACOB MAGID

{ timesofisrael.com } ~ Despite rising tensions and mutual warnings traded between Tehran and Jerusalem in recent weeks… Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an interview to be aired Sunday on American television that he did not believe the two countries were “headed towards regional war” “I do not believe that we are headed towards regional war but I do believe that unfortunately, Israel has continued its violations with international law, hoping to be able to do it with impunity because of the US support and trying to find smokescreens to hide behind,” Zarif told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “And I do not believe that the smokescreens work anymore,” he said, according to a transcript released ahead of the screening. But he stressed that Israel was escalating tensions “by violating Syrian airspace, by violating Syrian territory… on a routine basis.”… What the hell is Iran doing in Syria anyway.  https://www.timesofisrael.com/as-tensions-rise-zarif-says-he-doesnt-believe-iran-heading-to-war-with-israel/

One Percent Chance Comey Not A Self-Dramatizing Fruitcake

by: Ann Coulter

{ freedomsback.com } ~ There have been a lot of questions about why Trump fired James Comey, ever since he announced to NBC’s Lester Holt — incomprehensibly — that it was his decision, citing, by my count, at least a half-dozen different reasons.

On Sunday night, that question was answered. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Comey for showing the American people why he was so badly in need of firing.

Interviewed on his new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” it quickly became apparent that one of Comey’s favorite formulations is: I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether so-and-so sodomized a chicken. It’s possible. I don’t know.

Here he is on ABC News, accusing Trump of hiring prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed in Moscow possibly — I don’t know:

“I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It’s possible, but I don’t know.”

And here he is on ABC accusing Trump of colluding with Russia:

“More words I never thought I’d utter about a president of the United States — but it’s possible that he is compromised by Russia. It is stunning, and I wish I wasn’t saying it, but it’s just — it’s the truth. … It’s possible.”

And here he is being interviewed by USA Today on Russian influence:

“I don’t know if President Trump has been compromised by the Russians. And these are words I never thought would come out of my mouth about an American president, but it’s possible. I’m not saying it’s likely, I don’t know, and the honest answer is it’s possible.”

None of this says anything about the president. It tells us only that Comey has a low opinion of Trump, which I already knew.

But ABC’s George Stephanopoulos replied to one of Comey’s “it’s possible” formulations, saying: “That’s stunning. You can’t say for certain that the president of the United States is not compromised by the Russians?”

It’s not “stunning.” It’s a sleight of hand. Ask me to give you my odds that Hillary Clinton eats small children for breakfast. IT’S STUNNING! COULTER SAYS 1 PERCENT CHANCE!

HERE’S ANOTHER: I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I can’t say that James Comey was not a transvestite prostitute in Laredo, Texas, for 20 years, turning tricks at $5 a customer. I cannot say that. It’s possible.

Comey says that based on his years of experience in “the criminal investigation business,” the fact that the prostitute story bothered Trump so much suggested that it was true.

“Trump’s continuing focus on it surprised me,” he said. “When someone constantly brings up to deny something you’re not asking about, that’s an interesting fact. I think I put in the book the proverb, ‘Only the guilty flee where no man pursues.’ And so that struck me.”

1) Bringing up the prostitute story a handful of times hardly constitutes a neurotic fixation. CNN has brought it up 1,583,749,996 times. Trump has brought up the size of his inaugural crowd more frequently.

2) I don’t find it particularly suspicious that someone would be obsessed with the one accusation that could do him the most damage. Name one other thing in the dossier that anyone knows about. The prostitutes peeing on the bed is the weirdest — it stands out. I can see both a guilty man and an innocent man fixating on that story.

Comey only sees the guilty man.

Speaking of neurotic obsessions, I couldn’t help but notice that Comey is obsessed with telling us how ethical he is. In the ABC interview alone, Comey used the word “truth” 42 times; “honest” 28 times, “ethical” 10 times — “integrity,” “principle” and “moral” at least five times apiece.

That’s more than I hear in church on Sunday, and the preacher isn’t taking about himself.

Comey’s talking about himself.

“The lesson I’ve learned,” he said, “is that … it helps you see things more clearly and realize things like truth matters, integrity matters. Those ethical values are what are going to last. And when you have to explain what you’ve done someday to your grandchildren, that’s what will matter. Your grandkids won’t understand that people — angry at me, or the vice president of the United States was telling me people were going to die because of me. What they’ll want to know is, ‘What was your North Star?’”

The “Real Housewives” engage in less self-referential preening.

Comey even takes the time to tell us that other people think he’s a pillar of integrity, too! For our edification, he recalled liar-nObama telling him: “‘I appointed you to be FBI director because of your integrity and your ability.’ And then he looked me in the eye” — had he been staring at Comey’s crotch? — “and he said, ‘Nothing has happened, nothing, in the last year that has changed my view of that.’”

I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the former director of the FBI carries 8-by-10 glossies of himself wherever he goes. It’s possible. I don’t know.
