Sara Carter, Joe diGenova _ The Coup Now and The Next Steps


{ } ~ Joe diGenova begins by opening up on Sally Yates, the COUP participant who was Deputy AG during the liar-nObama regime… and acting AG when President Trump first took office, who was later fired for insubordination to the President. He mocks Yates for her comments about the rule of law, “when she and Brennan and Comey and others destroyed the rule of law in the liar-nObama administration,” destroying the Department of Justice and the FBI. “It is going to take a decade,” says diGenova, “to rebuild the public trust in the FBI and the Department of Justice, because Sally Yates, who just joined a fancy law firm in Atlanta, is going to need to lawyer up.” DiGenova continues, “The disgraceful performance of her, and of course, even more disgraceful, John Brennan, who led a conspiracy against a campaign of the opposing party’s presidential nominee, and then when he won, did everything they could to frame him and his compatriots with false crimes. It is the greatest political scandal in American history and shame on Sally Yates and shame on John Brennan.”…

Connecticut Votes to Scrap the Constitutional Method of Presidential Election

by Joe Wolverton, II, J.D.

{ } ~ The “dream” of popularly electing the president of the United States just got “one step closer to reality,”… according to an article published recently in the Washington Post. Christopher Ingraham, in a piece promoting the perceived benefits of electing the union’s chief executive by means of a simple vote tally, reported on the latest move toward that goal: Lawmakers in Connecticut have approved legislation that would add the state to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, bringing electoral reformers closer to their goal of sidestepping the Electoral College to elect presidents by a nationwide popular vote. Under the compact, states pledge to allocate all their electoral votes to the winner of the nationwide popular vote in presidential elections. It would not go into effect until it’s adopted by states representing at least 270 electoral votes, a majority…What a big mistake that is going to be. Calif and Texas can always be in control by over voting all those states.

Devastating 2016 Strzok Text Found: liar-nObama’s WH is Running Trump Investigation


{ } ~ For more than a year, the Democrat-aligned media has denied and scoffed at allegations that elements within the liar-nObama administration… had spied upon the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. That all changed recently with the leaked admission of an “informant” who’d been querying marginal Trump campaign associates for information about supposed connections to Russia on behalf of former President Barack liar-nObama’s FBI. That admission, combined with the voluminous ream of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page that had previously been released, have made it abundantly clear that liar-nObama’s FBI was indeed running a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, one that was directed from the highest levels…



Trade War Ceasefire?

by Nate Jackson: From the beginning, we argued that President Donald Trump’s planned tariffs were a negotiating chip with China. That became even more clear over the weekend, as China announced that it would buy “significantly” more U.S. goods and services. According to a White House statement, that will include “meaningful increases in United States agriculture and energy exports” with the goal being to “substantially reduce the United States trade deficit in goods with China.” Let’s hope it also brings back some American jobs.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declared that the U.S. was “putting the trade war on hold” as negotiations continue, but U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer insisted tariffs remain on the table if needed to “protect our technology.” Good cop, bad cop.

Keep in mind that trade is tied together with negotiations over the nuclear weapons program of China’s puppet, North Korea. The upcoming June 12 summit between Trump and Kim Jong-un is crucial, and sorting things out on the trade front with China is key. Hence other chess moves like canceling a planned training exercise with South Korea.

In short, this isn’t nearly as simple as the mainstream media sometimes portrays. Trump’s negotiations are all part of a long game.
