Well, who would suspect that the Nunes memo is just a Squirrel ?


Nothing to it, substanceless, but no one is allowed to examine it, and debunk the claims...

The overwrought rhetoric, and near-total lack of substance, suggests that the contents of the memo may not live up to expectations

Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said in statement that the memo, is “rife with factual inaccuracies” and “is meant only to give Republican House members a distorted view of the F.B.I.” But the panel has moved to prevent Democrats from releasing a minority report characterizing the intelligence upon which the memo is based. As a result, the only thing the public knows is what lawmakers are saying about a partisan document—again, written by Nunes and his staff—based on confidential information that cannot be disclosed.




G.O.P. lawmakers are reportedly considering publicizing the memo through an obscure legislative process that would establish a five-day window for Donald Trump to approve or deny its release. If he were to choose the latter, the decision would be kicked to the full House, which would hold a closed vote on the issue. But releasing the memo could diminish its power—especially if the alleged smoking gun is more smoke and mirrors. Republicans could feasibly bolster their claims by releasing the source material. And Trump could choose to declassify the entire thing, if he actually wanted to. But unless there’s a there there, it’s not clear there would be a point. If the memo is just Nunes’s ramblings, team “witch hunt” loses both credibility and leverage.

ABC News has obtained the "secret society" text...

It's a stand alone message from Lisa Page:

Fox TV info-tainment helped out by presenting something, and giving something to Emperor Carrot Head to rant about, after which FOX infotainment took it back, by calling it nonsense

The "missing text" story ginned up by Fox News has already been contradicted by Fox News, but that didn't stop Trump from going on about it.

Fan fiction for Trump trolls- It would be funny, if it were not so damaging and harmful.

Twisting reality


A sweeping technical glitch prevented texts on thousands of FBI cellphones from being stored in bureau archives, seemingly debunking Republican suspicions that anti-Trump messages between two FBI agents were purposely deleted, a Justice Department official said Wednesday.


Justice Department official familiar with the matter told the Daily News on Wednesday night that the gap in storage was actually due to a widespread glitch that affected cellphones of almost 10% of the FBI's 35,000 employees.


Justice Department officials are working to recover some of the thousands of text messages lost in the glitch, a source said.

Another possible reason for the Nunes memo Squirrel



The memo Republicans believed was “worse than Watergate” and would stop the Russia investigation, turned out to be... pretty much nothing. On Friday, after weeks of unearned build-up, Republicans released the lackluster House Intelligence Committee memo alleging that the FBI relied on former British spy Christopher Steele’s unverified dossier (of Pee Tape fame) to obtain and renew surveillance on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. But the four-page memo doesn’t shed light on much new information, its claims of liberal anti-Trump bias comes from mostly Republicans, and the document excludes relevant context that doesn’t support their argument. [HuffPost]



Friday, more than 2 million acres of formerly federally-protected land will now be open to mining, thanks to Trump. [HuffPost]



https://theslot.jezebel.com/thats-th...g-k-1822680984

More than 2 million acres of Utah wilderness — land that President Donald Trump cut from a pair of protected national monuments — will be opened early Friday to new mining claims.

Trump signed a pair of proclamations to dismantle the 1.35 million-acre Bears Ears National Monument and the 1.87 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in December. The move is the largest reduction of national monuments in history.

According to Reuters, the protections that banned new hard-rock mining claims will lift at 6 a.m. Friday. The Bureau of Land Management is preparing for an influx of gold, silver, copper and uranium claims under the General Mining Law of 1872. The 150-year-old law allows for private citizens and companies to claim mineral rights on land using nothing more than a hammer, stakes and a written note. The claimant then must record the claim within 90 days at a local BLM office and pay a nominal fee.

“We’re working on getting information and new monument maps ready for people interested in claims,” Utah Bureau of Land Management spokesman Michael Richardson told Reuters.

Keep Throwing Things at It, Something Might Stick


The point is, is that Donald John IQ#45 continues indiscriminately throw things at the wall.

It does not matter if it the truth or not, or if the gestures are false. It was said, it was done, by him, his minions, or his Trump enablers. He has a cast of thousands to echo his message in the media.

Donald John IQ#45 will just throw it out there.

It does not matter to him.

What does matter to him ?


Maybe, Russiagate makes him feel anxious.

wheeeee! a A Godzilla sized squirrel

"Bonkers"

Trump threatened to force the Department of Justice to adopt his own chosen priorities, ignoring the “phony” charges against him, and prosecuting the “real” ones against his opponents:

You look at the corruption at the top of the FBI, it’s a disgrace. And our Justice Department – which I try and stay away from, but at some point I won’t – our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia. There is no collusion with me and everyone knows it.

At this point, astonishingly, the embarrassed hosts ushered Trump off the phone, insisting he must be busy — likely the only time in memory a “journalist” has cut short an interview with the president of the United States. Trump is making his intentions perfectly clear. He wants the Department of Justice to lock up his political opponents and witnesses to his misbehavior. And he wants it to stop investigating his own misdeeds. The Department of Justice is constructed around restraints designed to prevent any such interference, because the power to use federal law enforcement as a weapon to protect the president and his party, and to harass the opposition, is so terrifying it has to be prevented at all costs. Trump is, on national television, making existential threats to the rule of law.

Donald John IQ#45 threw a large load of horse barn waste into the media, via a phone call to FOX TV info-tainment


Not quite inconsequential.

A bill, just a bill, to protect Mueller and the investigation

April 26, 2018

Even senators who voted against the legislation warned Mr. Trump against trying to dismiss Mr. Mueller. Senator Orrin G. Hatch of Utah, the longest-serving Senate Republican, said that “firing Mueller would cause a firestorm"

Trump Says Stupid Things On Fox, Within 2 Hours Prosecutors Use It Against Him In Court

April 26, 2018

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/201...t-Him-In-Court



At the end of the free-wheeling Fox interview, Trump returned to the issue a third time, accusing top FBI officials of corruption, and in particular criticizing McCabe, who was recently fired by Sessions over allegations that McCabe had made misleading statements about his actions relating to the FBI’s 2016 investigation into Clinton. “Our Justice Department—which I try and stay away from, but at some point I won’t—our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia,” the president said.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics...nvestigations/

At Georgetown Law School on Thursday, a group of former Justice officials from both political parties held an event called “Democracy in the Balance,” where they warned of how Trump is violating long-held norms.

As of Thursday, more than 900 former Justice employees had signed an open letter calling on Congress to “swiftly and forcefully respond to protect the founding principles of our Republic and the rule of law” if Trump were to move on Mueller or other Justice Department officials. Trump has long raged about Sessions recusing himself from the investigation that Mueller now leads. Those inside the Justice Department have been on edge since the FBI earlier this month raided the home, office and hotel room of Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Emperor Carrot Head threatens to use ‘the powers granted the presidency’ to end investigation


Donald J. Trump

A Rigged System - They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved


At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency


Trump has laid out his case simply enough. He has important work to do. The investigation is “a hoax.” And he has the right to fire anyone.

He is signaling his willingness to act on that “right.” Trump thinks that everything that appears to go well is simply more fuel for his authority. At the moment he’s charged up by Korea. If the stock market was still high, Mueller would likely already be gone.

And he has his legal team to spread the propaganda that backs his play.

-Mark Sumner


https://www.dailykos.com/user/Mark**0Sumner


In a remark that was apparently directed at Mr Mueller, he quoted comments from former US attorney Joe Digenova, who had suggested the president had power under the constitution to fire “any executive branch employee”.

Nobody will notice or care or riot.

Hey Donnie, if you stop acting guilty, people won't think you're guilty, and prosecutors won't look for guilt. Hey Donnie, just smile at the cameras, make nice with critics and reporters and other scumbags, be decent -- and release your financials to prove you ain't owned. You ain't owned, is you? Prove it.

This Looks Bad

Quick! Throw The Glowing Neon Cross
with Bright Red Blood Light

A Grand Proclamation!

Executive Order for Evangelicals


While even President Obama had a version of this office catering to religious Americans, Trump’s is radically different and will likely give more power to evangelical Christians.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendl...ligious-right/

Unlike faith-based initiatives by previous administrations, Trump’s initiative will require every department of the federal government to look for ways to partner with religious groups, not just faith-based offices, under the coordination of the new White House office.

https://www.atheists.org/2018/05/tru...-prayer-order/

And this week, the New York Times reported that new federal policies are diverting disaster relief funds away from victims and public services and instead directing them to churches and religious schools.


https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/01/u...gency-aid.html



(Donald John IQ#45) signed an executive order creating a "White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative" that will, among other things, make recommendations on policies that affect faith-based and community programs. Trump said the new office will help ensure such groups have "equal access" to government money and the "equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs."


https://www.sfchronicle.com/news/tex...photo-15497040

May 3, 2018

The ceremony was held on the National Day of Prayer and featured prayers from various faith leaders, including Cissie Graham Lynch, the granddaughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham; Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Catholic archbishop of Washington, and Levi Shemtov, the longtime D.C. leader for the Chabad Lubavitch movement, and also the rabbi where Jared and Ivanka attend services in town.(Southern Baptist pastors Jack Graham and Ronnie Floyd; conservative Focus on the Family founder and radio host James Dobson; and author and speaker Eric Metaxas in the Rose Garden)


Trump confirmed Thursday that lawyer Michael Cohen was reimbursed but said that they payments were through a “private agreement” and did not come from campaign funds. Trump said last month that he didn’t know anything about payments to Daniels.




It wasn’t clear if there were concrete changes that would come with the executive order, though Johnnie Moore, spokesman for the president’s evangelical advisory group — his only faith advisory group with regular access — said the initiative included an order to every department “to work on faith-based partnerships.”



Moore said this new executive order is part of the White House’s broader efforts to promote religious freedom.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.afa3a6f7599a

Trump lied about his success while he gave them their executive order


Trump tried to repeal the Johnson Amendment, which would have allowed pastors to tell their congregations who to vote for and turned churches into dark money conduits for politicians.

New executive order aims to protect religious liberty from government overreach

Squirrels are useful to the current White House.

Not only do they help Republicans to dominate the headlines, they drown out the opposition, and drown out inconvenient facts, reality based news, by sheer numbers of headlines.

Outrages have attention grabbing shock value. They do not need many words.

Instant headlines!

A woman, formerly an opinion editor for The Washington Times, (credentials that any normal person would be ashamed of) heartlessly uses John McCain's cancer as a joke.

She is a special assistant in the communications office .She helps manage talking points for Trump allies. This was not a random, off the cuff remark. She knew what she was saying would be leaked. No matter what line it crossed, it would be broadcast all over the country.

She made the comment about McCain during a discussion among the White House communications staffers about Gina Haspel’s nomination for CIA director, which the Arizona Republican announced Wednesday that he opposed.


"It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” she said.

Said during a closed-door meeting of about two dozen White House communications staffers on Thursday morning. The staffers continued their meeting, as if she had not said this.

She threw a perfectly constructed Squirrels, and it found its way into the media.

She was an opinion writer, with the Washington Times. With the reputation that writers that participate, have, is it possible identify it as a newspaper ?

https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-h...federate-ideas

https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-h...l-right-agenda


gsgs comment- To the point, John McCain has opposed the current White House on many issues. John McCain is not a young man, struggling to succeed, and build for his future. He could afford to break with the horrible alliances made under Trump. McCain can afford to defy the aims of the current regime. He can ignore the threats of loss of campaign support, and the threat of being frozen out.

Now, more than ever, his cancer gives him liberty to break with The Confederacy of Monsters. He is free to follow his conscience. He is facing the ultimate reality. He does not have to fulfill the requirement of living on the Other Side of Alice In Wonderland's Looking Glass. Death gives him the ultimate exit door. The reality is that he is 81 years old, and is battling cancer.


https://www.azcentral.com/story/news...way/600349002/

That did not stop many from attacking him. When you live on the Other Side of Alice in Wonderland's Looking Glass, you have already taken a step too far. McCains attackers have invested themselves so deep, and so heavily, that are not many boundaries they would not cross.


They will toss out hideous, inhuman, massive Squirrels and prove themselves to be monsters.


After, all, that is what happens, On The Other Side.

People become monsters on the Other Side. Afterwards, they do not recognize that they have done, or said, something that only a monster would do.


A human being knows instinctively, what is a step too far. OTOH, we have Trump. There is no step too far over the Boundary, for him.

Trump is their ultimate General, and Caesar, On The Other Side. If there is a war against the Americans that oppose,there are no boundaries that they will not cross. McCain was part of a world that had diplomacy. Many from across the divide visit him, during his recovery.


Diplomacy is gone, now we have atrocity, used against Americans by Americans. That is part of war.

@realDonaldTrump
Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!
8:45 AM · May 17, 2018



gsgs comment- They know, because Trump, himself, personally invited a Russian spy to travel with the campaign ?



The tweet refers to the claim, increasingly popular among Trump’s most ardent defenders, that the FBI had a spy in his campaign. The theory was given more fuel Wednesday by a line in a New York Times story, which said “at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos,” referring to Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

Through the world, into the Other Side of Alice in Wonderland's Looking Glass, and out, again. Returned to the real world, but no longer recognisable, as the original item.

Using a Squirrel as bait, to lure the Shark into opening its jaws.

Nunes has struggled to look at what Mueller has. Nunes has had no success.


Republican Trump supporters play the Insinuation Game-

The Trump Gremlins have dragged the Photoshop of Robert Halderman's body, (former CBS News producer who in 2009 was accused — and later convicted — of attempting to extort late-night TV host David Letterman.) and President Obama's head, out of the trash bin.

It was Halderman that was cuffed and frog-marched. Times are a bit gloomy for Trump Gremlins. They have not heard a "lock them up!" from their cult leader, for such a long time. Pretending cheers them up.

Sadly, Republicans are pretending, too.


A contributor to the National Review that suggested the FBI spied on the Trump campaign.

Trump on Wednesday also continued to gin up conspiracy theories that the Obama administration may have illegally surveilled him during the election. He called the theory “bigger than Watergate.”


https://www.motherjones.com/politics...-a-witch-hunt/

The term “government informant” cited in the Times piece in no way establishes the government had embedded a secret agent with the Trump campaign. Rather, it could suggest someone who may have had repeated contacts with the Trump campaign spoke with investigators about what they had heard or seen — a whistleblower, in some sense.

Both Trump and conservative pundits and journalists alike have run with the “embedded agent” theory regardless.



https://thinkprogress.org/trump-clai...-79f90a7e5fe2/

While the president takes to Twitter to spread obvious lies about public information, his chief communications official is refusing to take any responsibility for his false communications.

Trump has steadily fed the newstream with accusations against the Obama administration, of spying-

I equate the accusations, with fishing for information, and testing. Trump and associates were actively attracting attention.


The most simple technique, possible- Make wild accusations, with no basis, and no proof.


Let us not mistake attacks and attempts to mis-direct, as creativity.

Mueller's investigation looms, quietly, solidly.

Frantic activity on the Republican front, is glass thrown at a wall of titanium. Republicans have worn down images, through constant friction. It took every alliance, to accomplish that. The Republican front is not allowed anywhere near the "witness."


Republican Congress is pitting itself against the FBI, in an effort to get to the "witness."


Trump tweeted on Thursday about reports that there was a spy "embedded" within the Trump campaign — a claim that goes far beyond the publicly known facts — suggesting that he may back his congressional allies' efforts to have the information revealed.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.176c7b915384


The FBI is so concerned about the demands, the report found, that it is actively taking steps to reduce the risk.

Justice Department and the FBI have dread, for a direct order from Donald John IQ#45

Hyper-Partisan Republicans in Congress, seeking to push Donald John IQ#45 to take the ultimate action


Donald John IQ#45 is making noises about it

His own supporters in Congress say Do Not Do It

Are they meaningless noises ?

Not to Donald John IQ#45's base.


Everything is centered at the moment Comey remained silent, on what the FBI had on Trump before the day of the election.

There should have been a disruption of the election. Have President Obama step down, as if a new President was stepping in. Promote Joe Biden forward, as if there was a tragedy.

There was a tragedy. Both candidates were damaged. Hillary, through no fault of her own. Comey felt compelled to speak to Anthony Weiner's emails. (There are rumors that a rogue division of the New York FBI, was forcing the issue. This group threatened to leak news of the existence of emails connected to Hillary Clinton.) Comey was divided about Trump's campaign's involvement with Russia. There is a long record of Trump's objection to being "wiretapped," under observation, and spied on. All the operations the Russian spies were conducting in America were illegal. They were not obeying any laws. There was nothing to prevent the Russians from observing American surveillance of Trump. We now now there was constant communication with Russians. There is no such thing as a living ex- Russian spy.)

Black Cube and Obama aides

Black Cube is a private intel company staffed by former agents of the Israeli spy agency Mossad. In a Pulitzer Prize–winning report about Weinstein, which was published in October, Farrow revealed that Black Cube investigators, using false identities, met with McGowan and a journalist in attempts to extract information that could be used to stop the publication of allegations of abuse against Weinstein.

On Sunday night, Farrow said the tactics used in the Iran and Weinstein operations were remarkably similar. Emails McGowan and Farrow received from someone claiming to be “Diana Filip” contained almost identical language to messages Norris and Kahl received from “Adriana Gavrilo” and “Eva Novak.” When Farrow dug into their backstories, their online identities started disappearing:


Laura Rozen
@lrozen
On Reuben Capital Partners, cover firm used in op to suppress negative Harvey Weinstein stories, per New Yorker, &in email to Kahl’s wife 1/
1:28 PM · May 6, 2018


Black Cube has also been linked to Cambridge Analytica, the now-shuttered, super-shady data firm founded by the Trump megadonors Robert Mercer and Rebekah Mercer, which worked for the Trump Campaign in 2016

Is there anything such as an ex-Mossad agent ?

yikes

Laws are not built on a whim.

Laws are not fickle.

Comey did not nail Hillary Clinton, because he followed the rule of law. There was nothing in the law that could nail her. It was within the law, for him to examine the emails for the possibility, that there was a connection. Where his responsibility to the elections was, is beyond the scope of my knowledge.

As it is, the legal system is unpacking 35 years of Russia/Trump relations

A million voices, amplified with media megaphones, produce millions of Squirrels


Trump invited to Giuliani to the White House, and gave him a megaphone

Giuliani admits it was a Squirrel


http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...peachment.html


Asked to confirm that these efforts to discredit the Mueller probe were just a political tactic, Giuliani first demurred, insisting that he and Trump have just been calling attention to the suspicions, not creating them.

(Just how are Mueller and his team expected to publicly defend themselves, when the investigation is ongoing ?)

Appearing somewhat flummoxed, Giuliani tried to explain that he was only able to go on the attack because “they’re giving us the material,” meaning the missteps or alleged misconduct of federal law enforcement officials — though actually referring to Trump’s allies in Congress and in the conservative media. Then, surprisingly, he veered toward transparency:


Quote:
"Of course we have to [be aggressive in these attacks] to defend the president. We’re defending … um — to a large extent remember, Dana, we’re defending here … It is for public opinion. Because eventually the decision here is going to be impeach or not impeach."


Did ex-intelligence chief Clapper say FBI spied on Trump campaign? No

Behar: "I ask you, was the FBI spying on Trump's campaign?"

Clapper: "No, they were not. They were spying on — a term I don't particularly like — but on what the Russians were doing. Trying to understand were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence which is what they do."

Clapper repeated his point the same day in an interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.

"The objective here was actually to protect the campaign by determining whether the Russians were infiltrating it and attempting to exert influence," Clapper said.

You're absolutely right. He's doing "quite."

You seem to be having a hopped-up morning, TG. Building up to another massive stroke, are you? Didn't your doctors tell you that giving the alt-right crap a miss would help alleviate that?

A billion dollars...No, two billion dollars, in tax payer cash!

Why did the Congressional Picnic on the White House Lawn cancelled ?


Is tRump's comment about signing an executive action to end the forced family separations ( that he repeatedly claimed he couldn’t stop) just a gigantic Squirrel ?


The oozing, putrid rot of tRump's campaign to get his Wall, is about to enter the nostrils of the voters. A witness stepped forward, and people said that is sad, but it is not very abusive. That was just a little pin hole air leak out out of the balloon.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics...e-that-i-quit/


The children are being treated like adult political criminals in a Russian gulag. The balloon is about to burst, and spill its rotten contents into the fan.



Inquiries into the unfathomable abuses occurring in the greedy, unscrupulous contractor's buildings.


Drugged, abused, abused, injured, neglected, mistreated, and deaths of children. Just like any other privately owned child prison in the USA. They have been making mad profits on the preferred prisoners- under-aged adult boys. The new child prisons are a billion dollar business. No problems with rebellion or violence with traumatised children. Easier to frighten into compliance, and small bodies that do not weigh very much.


FFS, if you are going to drug the children, until they are stumbling zombies, at least have them wear sports helmets so they do not have brain injuries, when they fall.

Lawsuit Alleges Private Shelter Forcibly Injects Immigrant Children With Powerful Drugs

Move the assets (children)

'I will no longer comlpicit"
29 year veteran flight attendant quits


Flight attendant: I won't work flights that separate immigrant kids from families Is the government required to separate families at the border


On board these particular flights were ICE agents and migrant children (approximately four to eleven years old) who had been separated from their families and were being flown to a "relocation" site.


I learned from a fellow flight attendant that he was lied to by an ICE agent who said the children on the flight were part of a soccer team. When pressed, the agent finally admitted that they were, indeed children who were being relocated to assigned camps.

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/loc...hp?src=hp_totn

The I.C.E agents lie to everyone, in order to grab anyone they target. I.C.E. has been caught telling lies to local police. The Border Patrol agents lie to the baby's parents, and say the baby needs a bath, break to play, or sleep, or medical care. Many never see their children, again. Is this deliberate ?



Fuck, no! Profits from jailing babies, has got to go!

Former shelter, Star of Hope on 419 Emancipation Avenue is leased to Southwest Key

The application with the state requests a general residential operating license to hold up to 240 children between the ages of “0 to 17.” Several stakeholders who work with immigrant minors said they have been told the facility would largely serve “tender age” children who are younger than 12, as well as pregnant and nursing teenagers.

The federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is in charge of unaccompanied immigrant children, did not return calls or several emails seeking details.

Orange Horror IQ#45 to Congress- Stop confusing my (cult) base. The disaster that I created was just a
Quote:
Squirrel
My (cult) base will never believe that I did this deliberately."


Quote:
"While House Republicans struggled to win support for a compromise immigration bill this week, President Trump on Friday urged lawmakers to drop the issue until after the November midterm elections."
(Despite his denials, he did- because Stephen Miller convinced Orange Horror, that we "need to separate parents and children as a deterrent." This idea was brewing for two years. There was no office created to track the children, because of course there was not.)

gsgs comment- Everything the Republicans have tried to create was poorly built, falling apart, and incomplete. They have been constructing obstruction bills for so long, they could only produce Potemkin bills.

(Potemkin ? Think of an old fashioned billboard on the highway. You drive by them quickly. You do not stop your vehicle, and examine the image on the billboard. The man who built the Potemkin villages was not successful. He did not convince the person driving past the Potemkin village, that the village was real. That person was the leader of a nation, and their palace was filled with people that told the leader the truth, and kept the leader informed. It was a wasted gesture, but the gesture was appreciated. The creator of un-convincing house front facades was not punished, for trying to create a false impression.)


Today, someone would use photoshop, and add pictures of new houses, so they would have a convincing picture to show them on their smart phone.)

The various factions of GOP, could not get it together to construct a bill to make their wet dreams come true, though each had the Golden Ticket. As usual it was a clusterfuck situation- The 1% wealthiest got their tax break, but the Republicans almost blew the deal of a lifetime. Look at France- that is the USA, now. We are fucked, because Republican weasels could not lose.

Republicans To Hold 2020 Convention In Charlotte, N.C.


July 20, 2018

Not Charlottesville, Virginia where 32 year old Heather Heyer was deliberately mashed to death by a car driven by a White Supremacist.

But, Charlotte, N.C



White supremacists evoked Trump’s name during a demonstration in Charlottesville, Va., last year that resulted in clashes with counter-protesters and left three people dead and dozens injured.


At the 2012 DNC, police worried about protesters confronting officers. Now they must figure out how to reduce the chances of violence between pro- and anti-Trump demonstrators, said Eugene O’Donnell, a nationally known expert on policing and professor at the John Jay School of Criminal Justice in New York.

“This is going to be the mother of all protests,” O’Donnell said. “Who in their right mind would want to police this?”


https://www.charlotteobserver.com/ne...215123995.html



gsgs comment-

Trump, the worst that America has to offer, and his greedy, craven, cowardly, corrupt entourage, will attract the dregs of the lowest that America has to offer. Charlotte needs the money, because Trump robbed America. The city will need more money, after the GOP is finished with Charlotte, N.C.
/end gsgs comment


Charlotte Council voted 6-5 Monday to pursue contracts with the national GOP after more than three hours of high-pitched debate. Four Democrats and two Republicans voted in favor of the convention bid.


Despite the contentious debate over the Charlotte bid in which constituents packed the Government Center meeting chamber to lobby against the convention – primarily in opposition to President Donald Trump and party policy on a state and national level – U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis was conciliatory.

http://www.thecharlottepost.com/news...nvention-host/

Winston took a jab at Trump, calling him out for bigoted comments and policy that have upset the nation's political discourse.

“I don't see him as a Republican. I see him as a human avatar of white supremacy,” Winston said to applause. “He has hijacked the democratic process by taking advantage of the gray areas in our experiment in self-governance.”

“I actually believe it is an opportunity for us to take an active role in the democratic process, and I would hope that everyone would exercise their rights," Lyles said after the vote. “I think it is also an opportunity to share the values this city believes in through peaceful protest.”

Said Winston: "We should not let this vote change our focus, regardless of where it lands.”

http://www.thecharlottepost.com/news...nvention-deal/

July 20, 2018

Over the last five days, the White House has attempted to manufacture a permanent state of uncertainty, in which when Trump says or does anything — even with the world as witness — we can be talked into believing the most harmless interpretation of the facts.



"Don’t believe what you see."

-Kellyanne Conway



With Trump, there is always a lie, involved. Trump called a Cabinet meeting, to provide a photo-op to push Helsinki off of the page. The joke was that Trump's own intelligence agencies had cut off the electric power to the room. John Kelly, the president’s chief of staff, had shut off the lights. We are expected to believe John Kelly would make such a stupid mistake.

Who is writing these scripts ?

(Anyone have suspicions that this was pre-planned ? Simple action, catches the press off guard, and in the dark, unable to film. A prank provides a joke.)

gsgs comment-

In our modern, new world of spoofs, satire based video clips, outright hoaxes, it is a sensible caution, to doubt what you see, read, or hear. But, in the this instance, Kellyanne's words are applied to an absurd situation. Everyone that cared to look and listen, to the Helsinki meeting, were witnesses.

I, gsgs, could hardly believe my eyes and ears.


Disbelief, that Helsinki could be real.

Reality clashes with disbelief, there is a baby, with toddlers in a prison built for innocent children. A toddler too young to speak, stands before a judge, to defend itself. A baby returned to parents after five months, cannot recognize its parents. A nursing baby, taken from its parent's arms.

Disbelief and shame.

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer...ite-house.html

Most people enter the position of their highest level of incompetentcy, where they can do the least harm. Enough people and rules to provide a safety net, to protect the highly placed incompetent from himself, protect themselves, and potential victims.

Trump had reached his level of incompetence, before they raised him higher, to enable him to perform hatchet jobs.


At this moment, Trump"s White House picks are guaranteed to be incompetent. The hopes that competent people would protect us from Trump, are long gone. Each pick performs their hatchet job, and exits.
