Sessions Hiding DNC Server Evidence From Public Until After Midterms

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ As with seemingly everything that involves the FBI, DOJ or Intelligence agencies, they claim a privilege of operating beyond… the reach of the American people, including to a large degree, Congress, and when they are pressed for compliance, do so only begrudgingly, at the last possible moment, and to the minimum extent possible. The same is true for their political comrades in the Democratic Party. They even pay substantial amounts of money to keep the knowledge of their corruption private, with the DNC paying third party contractor CrowdStrike $521,000 to analyze their supposedly hacked server, something the FBI would have gladly done free of charge. The FBI also paid CrowdStrike $150,000 in July of 2015, in what was supposedly an unrelated expenditure. That’s over 2/3 of a million bucks for secret services which Democrats could have obtained for no charge, if they didn’t feel the need to prevent their actions from being discovered. For a political party in need of funding, wasting almost $700,000 would seem a bit reckless on its face, but we don’t know what they’re hiding… https://rickwells.us/sessions-dnc-server-evidence/

The Transparent Positioning of Brennan, Clapper and Comey

by sundance

{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ There is a great deal of discussion about the combative and hate-riddled language coming from Comey, Clapper and particularly Brennan… Be aware their combative posture as an actual risk avoidance strategy. Each of the three heavily corrupt officials engaged in the most substantive abuse of their intelligence positions for political purposes. Each of them weaponized their offices against their political opposition. The scope and severity therein is a story yet to surface; and unlike prior examples of weaponizing the DOJ and IRS, there is no administration in place to protect them from investigative sunlight. Therefore the Comey, Clapper and Brennan defense strategy is to position themselves politically and lean on their like-minded media allies for support. Their adversarial posture is intended to draw the Trump administration into political combat, thereby diminishing any investigative outcomes behind a false shield of political prosecution…  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/04/29/the-transparent-positioning-of-brennan-clapper-and-comey/

scum-Schiff: Fair to Say Trump Deserves Credit for North Korea Coming to the Table

by Andrew Kugle

{ freebeacon.com } ~ Congressman scum-Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said during an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week”… that it was fair to give President Donald Trump credit for North Korea coming to the negotiating table. ABC anchor Jonathan Karl asked scum-Schiff if the president deserves at least some credit for the progress that is being made on North Korea. “Doesn’t the president deserve credit for at least partial credit for what we’re seeing unfold on the Korean peninsula?” Karl asked. “I think it’s more than fair to say that the combination of the president’s unpredictability and indeed his bellicosity had something to do with North Korea’s willingness to come to the table,” scum- Schiff replied. “But before the president takes too much credit or hangs out the ‘mission accomplished’ banner, he needs to realize we may go into a confrontational phase, and he may not want the full blame if things go south.”…  http://freebeacon.com/national-security/schiff-fair-say-trump-deserves-credit-north-korea-coming-table/?utm_source=Freedom+Mail&utm_campaign=a232ea0aee-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_29&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b5e6e0e9ea-a232ea0aee-45611665

Judge upholds Texas’ voter ID law in major defeat to scum-Soros legal efforts

by patriotnewsalerts.com

{ patriotnewsalerts.com } ~ Texas has once again given conservatives hope there is some common sense in our judicial system… After years of battling, the United States 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Texas voter identification laws, dealing scum-George Soros a huge blow. Liberals challenged the Texas voter ID laws, saying the laws were racist and preventing the poor people and minorities in Texas from being able to vote. (thats a lie) Trying to appease the Democrat cry, Texas expanded the types of IDs that could be used to register to vote. The court has appeased them even more, further extending the types of IDs acceptable as well as lengthening the term for expired IDs to be used. State Attorney General Ken Paxton was delighted with the ruling… https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/judge-upholds-voter-id/?utm_source=boomtrain&utm_medium=morning&utm_campaign=CNA_20180430-1

The Can’t-Do Republicans

by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham

{ cnsnews.com } ~ Back in ’92, the late Paul Weyrich and I held a press conference during the Republican National Convention to make two announcements.

First, we were endorsing George Bush 41’s re-election. Second, we’d just made the most meaningless endorsement in history. He had so thoroughly bungled his first term that there was nothing to be done to save him. And we were right.

The Republicans are now facing the same future in November. At this point, they will certainly lose the House and quite possibly the Senate. Worse, they’ve so botched their opportunity that only they can save themselves now. Their $1.3 trillion omnibus bill was not just the most reckless spending bill in history, it was an abject surrender on every single political and policy pledge made to those who put them in office, save helping the military.

It’s been this way from the start. First, they asked for control of the House and its appropriations authority to right the fiscal ship, and as importantly, to end liar-nObamacare. In 2010, they got it — and immediately stated they could do nothing without the Senate. In 2014, they were awarded that, too — and just as quickly declared they could do nothing without the White House. So, in 2016 they were handed that, and with it complete control of the legislative process, but now with no more excuses available.

And what have they done? They surrendered without a fight. Any real advance, be it Justice Gorsuch, regulatory relief, minimal border security, minimal tax cuts or minimal changes in liar-nObamacare, has all been driven by the White House. Congress has done nothing.

Here’s the difference between the two parties. For the past eight years, the GOP has been the party that begins each conversation with, “This is why we can’t do it.” The Democrats begin theirs with, “This is how we’ll get it done.” The crisis for Republicans is so grave that not even a rhetorical shift will save them. Only action, concrete action, might. They must come up with victories.

Here’s what they need to do, in six easy steps.

1. Like it or not, they must wrap themselves around the president to save him from impeachment. This means publicly embracing him as their leader. More to the point, it means supporting everything he puts on the table from here through November, and doing it with brio.

2. Reverse that disastrous $1.3 trillion omnibus. This talk about a revision, or worse, a balanced budget amendment, is the height of hypocrisy and the public’s not going to stand for it. It’s like committing rape and then joining the #MeToo movement. Only tangible results, legislation that reduces the deficit and puts the government on the road to fiscal sanity, will work.

3. Kill liar-nObamacare. Nothing less will do. The public that voted these Republicans in has had it with excuses and half-measures.

4. End the funding of Planned Parenthood. The pro-life movement is leaving the GOP, and for good reason. When Republicans award the operation that proudly massacres more than 300,000 babies annually with $450,000,000 dollars taken from American taxpayers, there’s no difference between the parties.

5. Fund border security. The base will not stomach any more of the GOP’s public displays of affection for Chuck clown-Schumer while denying funds for Trump’s border wall. Promises made, promises broken.

6. Deliver real personal tax cuts. What they came up with last year rewarded big business nicely while excusing nearly 50 percent of Americans from the responsibility of paying taxes altogether. Everyone else was given a small amount of relief. Those were your voters, GOP.

Here is the bottom line. On Sept. 30, five weeks before the election, there will be the need for a new spending bill to keep the government running. Everything listed above can be accomplished in that one piece of legislation. No more excuses. No more punts. No more stalling.

It’s so obvious, really. At this point the GOP faithful are set to make a devastating declaration in seven months: “We gave you complete control, and you not only accomplished nothing, you broke your word on virtually everything. Good-bye.”

And you know what, Republicans? They’re right.
