Joy in Mudville

The media whores are going wild. They haven’t been this happy since they carried an unknown Muslim street hustler to the presidency. The DOJ, as always, folded under relentless pressure to name a special prosecutor to investigate whether the Russians called 66 million Americans and urged them to vote for Donald trump. There aren’t even any specific charges stated. That doesn’t matter. All they want is an investigation to avoid having to answer why they do nothing but attack the president from every quarter. Nothing positive, no efforts to improve the lot of the everyday working class who make this country go.

After SCOTUS intervened in 2000 to keep the Dems and the Florida Supremes from blatantly trying to steal the presidency, they raged at George W. Bush for the entire eight years of his presidency. I didn’t think they could be any more vicious. I was wrong. When Donald Trump shattered their fantasy of a socialist utopia under the first (woman) president they flew into a mindless, white-hot fury that seems to intensify every day.

Dems hail Mueller pick for Russia probe: a ‘master stroke’
In the Senate, Democrats had threatened to block Comey’s replacement until a special counsel was named.
The decision fell to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had stirred a political storm of his own last week when he provided Trump — at the president’s request — a justification for Comey’s firing.
Democrats howled, questioning Rosenstein’s integrity and dedication to the law. But on Wednesday, after the Mueller announcement, the Democrats were singing a different hymn.

It’s a Coup!
They have termed this coup “The Resistance” and with the aid of our activist judicial system, educational institutions, Hollywood, the press, and social media; they are leading a full blown war against President Trump on various fronts. With the aid of the propaganda media establishment, akin to the old Soviet Union’s Pravda, they proudly obstruct President Trump’s every move. Their aim is impeachment, but to impeach they need to have grounds; thus, they have concocted a conspiracy theory of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians without a shred of evidence to support that theory.

Nets Flock to Special Prosecutor News, Knock Trump and Mock GOPOne thing all of the networks agreed on was how brilliant Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s pick of Mueller was. They championed him as a man of integrity that could not be swayed by Washington’s political pressures. “David, just a reminder about Mueller, after serving ten years as FBI director he was asked by President Obama to re-up for an additional two years. He was reconfirmed 100 to nothing,” noted ABC’s Pierre Thomas.
Mueller’s record is outstanding, so it will be interesting to see if and how the liberal media’s attitude about him changes if he doesn’t prosecute the people they want.

DNC Not Satisfied With Mueller, Demands Independent Commission on Trump and RussiaAlthough many public Democrats have backed him, the Democratic National Committee made clear Wednesday that it considers the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election to be inadequate.
An email sent out by DNC chair Tom Perez said that Mueller’s appointment “underscored the seriousness of the investigation.” It insisted that, “Donald Trump didn’t want this. The White House didn’t want this. Republicans didn’t want this,” and called on readers to add their names to a petition calling to “demand an independent investigation into Trump and Russia.”

What is the 25th Amendment, and could it be used to remove Trump?
Briefly, the 25th Amendment is intended to clarify what happens in the event of the president or vice president’s death, resignation or removal from office. It also outlines how an Oval Office vacancy should be filled if the president becomes disabled and cannot fulfill his or her duties.
There are four separate sections to the amendment. Section 4, which concerns presidential disability, has gotten the most attention from Trump critics.
According to Section 4, if the vice president and a majority of his cabinet say that the president is disabled and cannot “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” then the vice president becomes president.

House Democrat Introduces Trump Special Counsel Act
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) introduced the Trump Special Counsel Act on Wednesday in response to President Trump firing former FBI Director James Comey, according to the Washington Examiner.
“The onslaught of scandals surrounding the Trump presidency have led our democracy to a crossing point,” Jackson Lee wrote in a statement on Facebook. “Will we uphold the rule of law or allow for the continued obstruction of justice by a chief executive who brazenly abuses his power?”

British bookies say gamblers are betting Trump won’t finish his term in office
The Betfair bookmaking website reports that gamblers have wagered more than $6,400 that Trump will leave office before January 2021
Oddsmakers are now predicting a 55 per cent chance that the president will depart the White House early
A Ladbrokes spokeswoman said ‘barely a day goes by without a Trump scandal, but money talks, and punters are becoming increasingly convinced’

It is a certainty that the democrats will never be satisfied because they have no inner core beliefs. Even in 2008 when they controlled everything they were never happy.
Another certainty is that the Republican party is going to let Trump to his own devices. Not one of them will show any support because their main interest is staying out of the spotlight and keeping their positions on the gravy train.

    Trump Under Siege: More than 60 Percent of NSC Employees Placed by Obama

    The source said there are “whole departments” at the NSC with only one Trump appointee.

    “I think the lesson here is that these things are going to continue to happen until the Trump White House does a serious housecleaning,” said Fred Fleitz, a former CIA and Bush administration official.

    “Now under civil service rules, it’s difficult to fire them and I’m not sure they should be fired, but they can be reassigned. And people who are going to promote the president’s policies rather than undermine them — he needs to put those people in place,” he added.

    Michael Flynn won’t honor subpoena to provide documents

    President Trump’s disgraced ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn will not honor a subpoena issued by a Senate committee looking into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, the panel’s chairman said Thursday.

    The decision comes as no surprise, legal experts say, given that Flynn would be waiving his constitutional protection against self-incrimination by turning over personal documents to the committee. Flynn, though his lawyer, had earlier asked for immunity from “unfair prosecution” in exchange for agreeing to cooperate with the committee.

    Forbes: If GOP Lawmakers Don’t Pass Tax Relief They Will Lose House and Trump Will Be Impeached

    Economist Steve Forbes told Stuart Varney if Republican lawmakers don’t pass tax relief they will lose the House and President Trump will be impeached.

    Steve Forbes: I think they will cut tax rates. Bigger reform may come next year. But the bigger thing is to get those barriers down now on the corporate tax side and individual tax side…

    Judge Placed On Leave When Officials Discover She’s Not A US Citizen

    Despite a city ordinance that requires municipal judges to be U.S. citizens, the South Korea native originally took her job because there wasn’t a question about citizenship status on her application for appointment, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reported. Instead, the application only asked whether the candidate was eligible for legal employment in the state, according to City Councilman Rudy Garza Jr.

    Media Hysteria: WaPo Treats Kevin McCarthy Joke as Proof of Trump-Russia Link

    he Washington Post released the latest salvo in the media’s effort to take down President Donald Trump on Wednesday: a joke made last year by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin pays Trump.

    The joke occurred during a private conversation involving the House Republican leadership. The conversation was recorded. The exchange — from the transcript alone, since the Post has not made the audio available — is as follows:

    McCarthy: The Russians hacked the DNC and got the opp [sic] research that they had on Trump.

    McCarthy: laughs


    Ryan: The Russian’s [sic] hacked the DNC…

    McHenry: …to get oppo…

    Ryan: …on Trump and like delivered it to…to who?

    McCarthy: There’s…there’s two people, I think, Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump…[laughter]…swear to God.

    Ryan: This is an off the record…[laughter]…NO LEAKS…[laughter]…alright?! [Laughter]

    Ryan: This is how we know we’re a real family here.

      Not unlike the way the Slime Stream NEWS shows repeatedly played a clip of SNL’s Tina Fey satiring Sarah Palin’s true statement that there is a place in western most Alaska where it is possible, on a clear day, to see a place in eastern most Russia. Surveys showed that many voters believed Palin actually said, “I can see Russia from my house.”


  9. Thanks for another news roundup, Pete. Even if I am getting to it a day late.

    “British bookies say gamblers are betting Trump won’t finish his term in office…”

    I seem to recall that bookies were so confident in Hill’s victory they were paying out before the election was over. Whoops!

    Just like all these Laughingstock Media and Dems and DIABLOs calling for Trump’s impeachment are the same ones who were opposing him all the way to the White House. Look how that worked (not!) for them.

    Through the dust kicked up by the propagandist commies, you can see some daylight:
