    ROD ROSENSTEIN GOES TO THE WHITE HOUSE – RESIGNATION EXPECTED
    Steven Ahle

    Rod Rosenstein is no longer in charge of the Mueller witch hunt and on top of that, his protector, Jeff Sessions was fired by Trump. Sessions said a couple of times that he would resign if Rosenstein was fired. It’s Rosenstein’s turn to do the same. He is heading to the White House and he could resign at that time. Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker is expected to take over the Mueller probe.

    That is probably the end of the Mueller investigation. In the past, Whitaker said that Mueller has crossed the red line in his investigation. He said that Mueller does not have to be fired. He said that the AG of the DOJ could just cut his funding, effectively killing the investigation. He also wrote in an op-ed that Hillary Clinton should be indicted. He now has become the Democrat’s worst nightmare.

    Trump will nominate someone to take over permanently. Whitaker could be the nominee as well as others. Confirmation of Trump’s nominee will pass through the Senate easily, if not now, in early January, when the new majority takes office.

    Via The Daily Beast:

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is reportedly on his way to the White House after Jeff Sessions was asked to resign Wednesday.

    Shortly after Sessions turned in his resignation letter, a US official said the Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker is expected to take over the Mueller probe.

    Matthew Whitaker is described as a “Trump loyalist” who has been privately described as the West Wing’s “eyes and ears” in the Justice Department, says the New York Times.

    Now that Rosenstein no longer has control over the Mueller probe, he may resign from his position as DAG.

    Trump just keeps on winning and Schumer is now weaker than he was before. Not only has he lost Democrats, he has also lost RINOs like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker. That means many of Trump’s judges will be confirmed faster. He could give the courts a conservative slant for two or three decades.

    Trump just keeps winning.

  • 20,000 INVADERS ENTER EUROPE’S EXTERNAL BORDER, NEARLY ALL ARMED WITH KNIVES
    Steven Ahle NOVEMBER 8, 2018

    I WONDER IF ONE CAN GET GEORGE SOROS TO PROMOTE AN INVASION OF BARBADOS WITH A CARAVAN ON SOME BARGES?

    JOIN IN THE DISCUSSION, YOU NEVER KNOW HOW EXPRESSING YOUR VIEW MAY MAKE A DIFFERENCE. LOL!

    That’s a lot of knives. I hope George Soros got a good price for buying so many at one time. The invaders are trying to cross the Bosnia/Croatia border. Austrian Intelligence has determined that most of them are armed, mostly with knives.

    The invaders have been getting bolder, and many think they are just days away from breaking through. Croatia is trying to handle it on their own but the invaders are beginning to get more violent, throwing rocks and any other object they find in their path. Hungary will be spared. They have a wall.

    From Breitbart News

    According to Italian news agency ANSA, local media reports the groups send numbers of young people and children towards the police line to chant “open border, open border”, while clashes see mobs of young men charge at police, and throw stones and other projectiles.

    “The Croats are trying really hard to handle this alone, and have even positioned special forces in the area”, but authorities in the Balkan nation are struggling to cope with worrying developments at the border, according to sources at the Austrian Interior Ministry reported by Austrian bestselling newspaper Kronen Zeitung.

    “More [illegal immigrants] are arriving — there are no more families and there are hardly any women left,” sources at the ministry’s migration department are claimed to have said.

    DID THE BRAINLESS SHITYBAMA REALLY REALLY MESS UP SO BAD?

    REPORT OBAMA FAILURE: 5 FREED TALIBAN LEADERS TRADED FOR US SOLDIER RETURN

    WATCH DPD COME AND TELL US DAT DIS AINT TRUE
    Daphne Moon

    The five Taliban commanders that former President Barack Obama freed in exchange for United States Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is now back in action as Islamic terrorists.

    Despite warnings that swapping terrorists for Bergdahl would end up in the Taliban leaders waging jihad against American once again, the Obama administration continued its controversial deal to release the “Gitmo 5” from the high-security U.S. military prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba – which Obama attempted to completely evacuate by the end of his last term in office, according to One News Now.

    Bergdahl was originally freed in 2014 after former President Barack Obama transferred five Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo bay to Qatar in exchange for his release by the militant group. All five Taliban militants were senior figures in the insurgent force and assessed as major threats to U.S. interests during their detention at the military prison.

    The terrorists include Mohammad Fazl, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Mullah Norullah Nori, Khairullah Khairkhwa, and Mohammed Nabi Omari. Sen. John McCain of Arizona described the men as the “hardest of the hard core” at the time, criticizing Obama’s decision to release them without consulting Congress.

    Others fear the five, all of whom were close to the insurgent group’s founder and hard-line leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, bring with them the same ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam that characterized the group’s five-year rule that ended in 2001 with the U.S.-led invasion.

    A Taliban official familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press that talks ended with an agreement to meet again. Key among the Taliban’s requests was recognition of their Qatar office, said the official, who spoke on condition he not be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

    In an unexpected development, Pakistan also bowed to a long-standing Afghan Taliban demand that it release its senior leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who had been in jail in Pakistan since 2010. At the time, Baradar was reportedly jailed after bypassing Pakistan to open independent peace talks with Hamid Karzai, who was then Afghanistan’s president.

    Baradar’s release followed Khalilzad’s first visit to Pakistan since being appointed Washington’s peace envoy.

    Baradar issued an audio message after his release to the Taliban. The Pashto-language message, heard by an Associated Press reporter, seemed to indicate he was preparing for a role in the insurgent movement moving forward.

    Hakim Mujahed, a former Taliban member who is now also a member of the Afghan government peace council, said the presence of the five former Guantanamo prisoners in the Taliban’s Qatar office is indicative of the Taliban’s resolve to find a peace deal. He said the stature of the five within the insurgent movement will make a peace deal palatable to the rank and file, many of whom have resisted talks believing a military victory was within their grasp.

    WHOA: POLL WORKER IGNORED AFTER BLOWING THE WHISTLE ON A NAME THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN THERE!
    Daphne Moon DAPHNE MOON 17 HOURS AGO
    Just before the midterms, a whistleblower volunteering her time at the polls recognized a name she had not seen in more than 14 years! There is a good reason she hasn’t seen this particular name in over a decade- the person has been deceased all this time but somehow managed to end up on the approved voter’s list?

    Isn’t it interesting how stories like these never made it through the mainstream media?

    A volunteer poll worker in Ohio noticed something interesting on a signature poll book: her deceased neighbor appeared on the active voter list. The kicker? Her neighbor died 14 years ago, according to Town Hall.

    The worker, Linda Zgoda, has volunteered at various polling places in Hamilton County for the last 20 years.

    “I feel like I have to have honest elections, you have to have good officials,” Zgoda told WEWS-TV. “I feel like it’s a civic responsibility for people to work at the polls.”

    She pays close attention to details.

    “It was initially when we had the signature poll book that I became aware that my neighbor was still on the rolls,” she said. “Then after it had been on for so long, I became curious about it.” That’s when she began to dig.

    “I’m concerned that by someone being on the rolls, someone could improperly vote in their name,” she said.

    But when she brought this ‘error’ to the attention to the proper officials was the mistake corrected? No! In fact, Zgoda was practically handed scissors and told the family of her dead neighbor would have to cut through miles of red tape to get their loved one’s name removed.

    As Reported By ABC Action News:

    She contacted the Hamilton County Board of Elections and was told a family member needed to turn in her neighbor’s death certificate to have that person removed.

    “Since this has been brought to our attention, we did more research, and we’ve been able to obtain some more identifying information, and that person has now been canceled,” Hamilton County Board of Elections director Sherry Poland said.

    Poland said the state and county usually do a more thorough job of removing deceased voters from the rolls, but this time was different.

    “We did receive a deceased Ohioans report at that time (in 2004), and (it) included his name but didn’t include his address,” Poland said. “The report did have a date of birth, but we didn’t have a date of birth on file.”

  • America will be unable to continue for much longer through the “give and take” of Congressional politics when one views the reality of the Democratic Party as thinly veiled Communists of today, who simply take and never give in any so-called “compromise”. Look at the violence that followed President Trump’s election and the tacit support given violent rioters of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and one will understand that the far and wide disparity between the ideology of the Democrats and the Republicans will only lead to greater civil strife, if not an eventual civil war.

    Today, Americans hear young socialists and communists within our nation talking about “fundamentally transforming” America, which simply means creating a new authoritarian socialist state for America and destroying the Constitution and the Republic, “by any means necessary”.

    And now we see a self-avowed socialist from New York elected to the House … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez … who has the sense God gave a mushroom, exhibiting just how immoral and greedy the people of her district are and how far New York has fallen. We also see an anti-American Muslim … Keith Ellison elected as the Attorney General of Minnesota.

    The recent talk by leading Democrats of coming together in unity for the sake of America is just that … Talk … wait until they are sworn in.

    The Battle for the Heart and Soul of America will continue for some time. . The war is ahead of us – and the ending will be much like that of the final Fall of Rome.

    Mob chants threats outside Tucker Carlson’s DC home

    A self-described left-wing Antifa group posted videos of a mob outside the Washington, D.C., home of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening, chanting, ‘Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.’

    A self-described left-wing Antifa group posted videos of a mob outside the Washington, D.C., home of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening, chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.”

    The now-deleted video was posted on social media by Smash Racism, D.C. The same group made headlines in September after activists confronted Sen.Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife inside a restaurant during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

    The group posted on Facebook that Carlson spreads “fear into our homes,” and said it wanted to even the score.

    “Each night you remind us that we are not safe. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either,” the group posted. They also chanted, “Racist s—bag, leave town.”

    The post was later removed.

    Tucker has 4 children.

    Carlson, host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was not home at the time. He said his wife, Susie, was home alone and heard the commotion from the kitchen. She called the police and locked herself into a pantry, he said. His brother — who lives close by — arrived about the same time as law enforcement.

    The host said activists rang his doorbell, broke his oak door and one protester was apparently caught on security video mentioning a pipe bomb.

    D.C. police did not immediately respond to a Fox News email early Thursday.

    Carlson said he was at the Fox News office in Washington working on his opening monologue when neighbors texted him about the commotion outside his home. His wife of 22 years did not contact him because she didn’t want to distract him before he went on air, he said.

    The group eventually scattered. It was unclear if there were any arrests. Carlson said the group posted online the home addresses of his brother and his former college roommate, Neil Patel, who co-founded the Daily Caller with Carlson.

    Carlson said he is used to being confronted in public and has no interest in playing the role of victim, but he said his wife and his four children should not have to be exposed to the aggression while at home.

    “Here’s the problem, I have four children,” he said by phone. “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show.”

    Twitter reportedly removed a photo of Carlson’s home address that was posted by the group. Smash Racism DC’s account was suspended early Thursday.

    Brit Hume, a Fox News commentator, took to Twitter to denounce the protest as “revolting, and frightening.”

  • LIBERALS WIN THE HOUSE AND THEY ARE STILL MISERABLE

    Liberals blame white women for Democrats’ failures in midterm elections — and they’re vicious

    Liberals blame white women for Democrats’ failures in midterm elections — and they’re vicious
    Prominent liberal voices attacked and blamed white women for ruining their “blue wave” of Democratic votes in the midterm elections.

    Prominent liberal voices offered scathing critiques of the demographic they blamed most for the lack of “blue wave” victory in the midterm elections on Tuesday — white women.

    White women uphold white supremacy

    Despite the onslaught of free campaign publicity for Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) in his uphill attempt to unseat incumbent Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and the millions that poured into the contest, Cruz was able to hold on to his seat. Although the House of Representatives fell under control of the Democrats, many were disappointed at the lack of greater electoral successes.

    Many on the left saw this and the deflation of the “blue wave” as evidence that white women were not pulling their weight at the polling booth to help their progressive vision come to fruition.

    And they aired out their frustrations on social media.

    Liberal activist Marisa Kabas tweeted, “white women uphold white supremacy through their vote. they have no qualms about hurting women of color, and that’s an objective truth.”

    “Black women voted 95% for Beto. White women did what white women do,” said comedian and writer Travon Free, adding an image showing that 59 percent of white women voted for the re-election of Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

    Some conservatives on social media saw the irony of blaming white women for voting for a Hispanic candidate, simply because he’s Republican.

    “59% of white women voted for Ted Cruz,” said white female comedian Chelsea Handler. “I don’t know what it is going to take for us to be sisters to other women, but we have to do better than this.”

    “We need to vote for the best interests of others, and stop thinking only about ourselves.”

    “White women are a Republican constituency, and in many states they again voted as if patriarchy would protect them,” said frequent MSNBC guest Jamil White. “50 percent or more for DeSantis, Cruz, and Kemp.”
    I am unsure when they will understand the damage that they do, and not just to themselves.

    “Really, truly embarrassed that 76% of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp. It’s shameful. Humiliating,” said New York Magazine writer,
    Thinking about driving my ass down there next election and personally talking to as many of these fools as possible.

    “We have to do better, white women. Doing f**king SOMETHING would be a g***amn start,” tweeted liberal writer Courtney Enlow. “Have the awkward conversations, take the emotional labor off the backs of women who have more on their g***amn plate than we ever will. Do. Better.”

  • PLANS AFOOT TO GET THAT CARD CARRYING PUSSY GRABBER!

    Top Democrats in the House are reportedly planning to invite Robert Mueller to testify on Capitol Hill in televised hearings if President Trump takes action to fire the special counsel and shut down the Russia investigation.

    Senior Democratic aides told Politico that if Trump were to fire Mueller and other members of the Justice Department’s leadership in a scenario similar to Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre, Democrats would respond by inviting Mueller to testify before the House in a televised hearing.

    “I think you could expect Democrats to take pieces of what they shut down and expose it publicly,” a senior aide familiar with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) thinking told Politico.

    “This is a report paid for with taxpayer dollars. So taxpayers would have a right to know what Mr. Mueller found,” the aide continued.

    Trump has attacked Mueller and the special counsel investigation, which he calls a “witch hunt,” for months despite several top members of his campaign being ensnared in criminal charges related to the investigation.

    In April, the president suggested that he has been advised to fire the special counsel, and it was reported that Trump had previously attempted to do so last year.

    The White House has publicly maintained that Trump has no plans to fire the special counsel or other top leaders at the Department of Justice, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is expected to exit following this week’s midterm elections.

    “As we’ve said many times before, we have no intention of firing the special counsel,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a press briefing in April.

    “We’ve been beyond cooperative with them, we’re continuing to cooperate with them,” she added.

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who is set to become the new chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said on MSNBC that Democrats could protect Mueller the way Republicans would not do.

    “I think that the chances that Bob Mueller will be able to finish his work improved for the reason that our committee and others like the Government Reform Committee and the Judiciary Committee, which under Republican leadership served as basically surrogates for the president in their efforts to batter down the Justice Department, to give the president a pretext … to fire people in the Justice Department, all of that tearing down of the independence of these institutions is going to end,” Schiff said.

    “Now that doesn’t mean the president can’t still act in ways that are antithetical to the rule of law and the interest of justice, but it does mean that we’re better able to protect our institutions and see this investigation, I hope, complete.”

  • Trump Devastates Obamacare
    President Trump has announced changes in how Obamacare will be enforced. Fox News reports:

    In a post-midterms one-two punch to ObamaCare, the Trump administration on Wednesday finalized major rule changes aimed at rolling back the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage mandate and tightening restrictions to ensure that taxpayer subsidies aren’t used to fund abortions.

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that the changes would allow some employers with religious or moral objections to opt out of providing no-cost birth control for female workers.

    Last year, the White House vowed to provide “full protection” to a wide range of companies and organizations that claim a “religious or moral objection” to providing the coverage.

    Under former President Barack Obama’s health care law, most employers must cover birth control at no charge as a preventive service for women. Accommodating religious objections has been a sticking point with conservatives for years, and was the subject of legal challenges.

    This is welcome relief for religious organizations, who will no longer be persecuted by the government for simply exercising their religious freedom.

    David Mr Blogmaster the elections are over and now on we go to 2020…but there is time for pause to parse these results and what they portend, so ideally there is further chat on that.

    One important change is the rearrangements of state house with more Democratic governors and even more importantly the blunt push back from the courts of ridiculous gerrymandering done by Republican legislatures…the action in Pennsylvania to reset that type gerrymandering was crucial to the Dem victories there.

    The repubs did well in the Senate and Florida appears to be more red than blue once again which is awesome for their electoral numbers but key shifts in the same Penn. and places like Michigan and Wisconsin where the former repub presidential candidate and current gov Walker was defeated are strong pluses for DEMS on that electoral scale.

    And all that should mean ONE thing for the avg Bajan: all politics is local and the work on the ground can yet dispel the person at the top of the ticket..thus our local DEMS can feel motivated to win back some serious ground in five years…😎

    And a two cents on POTUS and this acting AG.

    I was wondering how the POTUS could circumvent the Senate approved dep AG or other Senate spproved legal officer in DOJ and appoint the man he did…I thought he was contravening the constitution, so I went in search of the facts….

    And of course law being law, differing opinions abound…what a surprise 😂.

    Suffice to say tho this could definitely be a constitutional issue and may reach the courts.

    The other amazing thing of all this is that the POTUS was also going to fire the dep AG when the news broke of his 25 Amendment perfidy so it’s perhaps rational that he was not appointed to act and then the third person in line who was Senate approved left the DoJ a few months ago.

    The entire affair is about palace intrigue and deep concerns about the legal health of the US but it seems that no Republican leader is concerned in the slightest, which is very strange considering a senator had threatened “holy hell to play” if Sessions was fired!

    The only thing guaranteed from all this is that the Mueller investigation will not be stopped…POTUS is hoisting himself by his stupidity if he actually believes he can somehow muddy the probe with his shenanigans.

He has now been vested with the law enforcement authority of the entire United States government, including the power to supervise Senate-confirmed officials like the deputy attorney general, the solicitor general and all United States attorneys.

    We cannot tolerate such an evasion of the Constitution’s very explicit, textually precise design. Senate confirmation exists for a simple, and good, reason. Constitutionally, Matthew Whitaker is a nobody. His job as Mr. Sessions’s chief of staff did not require Senate confirmation. (Yes, he was confirmed as a federal prosecutor in Iowa, in 2004, but Mr. Trump can’t cut and paste that old, lapsed confirmation to today.) For the president to install Mr. Whitaker as our chief law enforcement officer is to betray the entire structure of our charter document.

    In times of crisis, interim appointments need to be made. Cabinet officials die, and wars and other tragic events occur. It is very difficult to see how the current situation comports with those situations. And even if it did, there are officials readily at hand, including the deputy attorney general and the solicitor general, who were nominated by Mr. Trump and confirmed by the Senate. Either could step in as acting attorney general, both constitutionally and statutorily.

    Because Mr. Whitaker has not undergone the process of Senate confirmation, there has been no mechanism for scrutinizing whether he has the character and ability to evenhandedly enforce the law in a position of such grave responsibility. The public is entitled to that assurance, especially since Mr. Whitaker’s only supervisor is Mr. Trump himself, and the president is hopelessly compromised by the Mueller investigation. That is why adherence to the requirements of the Appointments Clause is so important here, and always.

    Prince Charles is on the second leg of a tour of three African nations.

    Britain’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade was an appalling atrocity that has left an “indelible stain” on the world, Prince Charles has acknowledged.

    The heir to the UK’s throne made the comments in a speech in Ghana, from where many Africans were shipped away to a life of slavery, most across the Atlantic, on ships from Britain and other nations.

    Charles said the “profound injustice” of that legacy could never be forgotten, adding: “At Osu Castle on Saturday, it was especially important to me, as indeed it was on my first visit there 41 years ago, that I should acknowledge the most painful chapter of Ghana’s relations with the nations of Europe, including the United Kingdom.

    “The appalling atrocity of the slave trade, and the unimaginable suffering it caused, left an indelible stain on the history of our world.”

    Charles had visited Christiansborg Castle in Osu, which originally operated as a Danish slave trade fort and from where it is estimated more than 1.5 million Africans were forced into slavery.

    The castle later became the seat of the Ghanaian government after the country’s independence from Britain in 1957.

    Britain had been involved in the transatlantic slave trade for more than 200 years by the time it abolished the trade in 1807, although the full abolition of slavery did not follow for another generation.

    The British taxpayer paid out large sums in compensation to former slave owners, though none was handed to the people who had been enslaved. Many of them were even forced to work on for years without pay after slavery.

    When will Britain face up to its crimes against humanity?

    “While Britain can be proud that it later led the way in the abolition of this shameful trade, we have a shared responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten,” Charles told his audience in Ghana.

    Charles’ intervention was a significant step towards officially acknowledging the damage the UK helped to cause during the period, with the royal family having faced repeated calls from some quarters to apologise for the country’s part in it.

    The prince and his wife, Camilla, are on the second leg of a tour of three African nations, having already visited Gambia, which he congratulated for turning its back on autocratic rule and returning to the Commonwealth, before he heads to Nigeria on Tuesday.

    In his speech in Accra, Charles, who was approved as successor to his 92-year-old mother, Queen Elizabeth, as head of the Commonwealth earlier this year, spoke of the role the loose alliance of 53 member states could play in tackling climate change, a key campaigning issue of the prince.

    “In such an uncertain and changing world, none of us can know what kind of a planet our grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, will inhabit, but the Commonwealth … offers us a vital mechanism to help ensure that it is not poisoned and polluted and that its vitality is not compromised,” he said.”

    I think the Democrats and their supporters took issue with the way in which Jeff sessions handled cases involving black people…as far as I could remember …but I am not quite sure if he was characterized as a bigoted…

    However, John, here is the question I have for you though: since America is regarded as a Melting Pot or a Salad Bowl … why isn’t it that Trump’s cabinet does not reflect this reality?

    Nonetheless, why is that this country which was inhabited by the Native Indians prior to the European Expansion … does not have any of the Native American Languages as a National Language?

    The reason I think is this!!

    “Each state elects two senators, while seats in the House of Representatives are apportioned by state according to population, with each state receiving a minimum of one representative.”

    States with higher population are equal in the Senate but not in the Congress hence the lament of the Democrats on popular vote!!

    Simpletons who don’t understand how the Unites States of America was formed and can’t reason it out for themselves follow suit.

    States that are more equal (California, Texas, Florida, New York) in the Congress are prizes to be won at any cost!!

    Same logic for the election of the President.

    The Democrats need Texas and Florida at any cost, California and New York just aren’t doing it for them!!

    So, they are extending themselves beyond normalcy to get those two and so risking exposure.

    If Trump excises voter fraud and ballot box tampering we may see a true result which given observable Democrat actions may favour the Republicans … … and if he also exposes the press as an arm of the Democrat party (or vice versa) … could be the difference is …. bigly

    America is properly called the United States of America and by definition, not the United Peoples of America!!

    The Senate is the equalizer, hence the wailing and gnashing of teeth this time around when the Democrats best laid plans in Texas and Florida did not produce the results!!!!

    Looks like they may now risk exposure!!

    The elections being over so too is the so called “pre-election quiet period” so this news can be released: POTUS has been subpoenaed…🤔…

    OK thats fake for now 🤣…but it sure seems like real news!

    So no wonder POTUS wants his man in charge to get the details of exactly what Mueller has in his tool kit… lets get ready for this knock-out Thriller in DC !

    Oh …why the the idea of the subpoena …that’s based on the interesting analysis of a former federal prosecutor and Senate/WH aide writing in Politico some weeks back. He perceives that Mueller has launched his final request for a POTUS interview before the grand jury….he makes a compelling argument.

    *He notes that a little noticed court filing was made around August 15 when Mueller prosecutors submitted a sealed grand jury case in US federal district court.

    *Then very swiftly the judge hearing the case issued his ruling.

    *And very promptly thereafter that ruling was appealed

    The speed of those actions were stunning for the DC court system and was noticeable enough to him….but then…

    *The party appealing requested an en banc hearing..that is, he wanted ALL the appellate judges to hear the matter not the regular three judge panel.

    Why and who would demand that for a standard case … thus likely this was a most important matter of the highest order he surmised.

    And then he noticed that a judge appointed by Trump and who had worked with McGahn in the WH counsel’s office as a deputy counsel had RECUSED himself from this sealed matter.

    Voila…his deduction: Subpoena fire from the old war horse Muelller.

    The spectacle continues…

    David Mr Blogmaster, there is nothing special needed to be done by the Dems during this so called lame duck closing of the 115th Congress. Beyond the expected jostling for leadership (the attacks on Pelosi as new speaker in particular) it will be all about what REPUBLICANS do to shore up, complete or otherwise manage affairs to save any embarrasments (and here I think partucularly of Nunes).

    I am bemused by your note to @John tho. What point exactly is taken?

    It can’t be this nonsense of ballot fraud surely. That is a canard…no actually an absolute falsehood…as projected by POTUS. Obviously there are cases of fraud but absolutey not to any widespread level that can affect a presidential ir senate election.

    Moreover, the fraud that has been exposed over the years has been from both parties…as you alluded to…so its disingenuous BS for anyone (Dem or Repub) to get on any soap box on that issue.

    The Dems have had issues with their get out vote programs and accusations (as above) of dead folks voting and so on….but realistically can a few zombies put a POTUS in office.

    Now on the other hand Repub are much smarter…they work to do unbelievable gerrymandering to get amazing districts of red republicans to ensure their representatives win.

    Yes its also true that any one congressional district cant elect a POTUS but savvy republicans know that entrenched republican majorities means CONTROL of the state house (and ideally congress where they can CONTROL the laws) and do like that guy Kobach and suppress voting with these ridiculous claims of widespread voting fraud!

    So help me understand exactly what is his point!

    I also thought that the racist bigot would have won the election given the “America is for Americans” that is rampant and the sentiment that he was and continued to promote but…and I saw the lines…that sentiment is alive and well, it is just that most of the people who live it, get tired standing in the lines, but they are there still there.

    Fortunately they are old school and they also have a useful? aversion to mail in ballots.

    It was close though.

    Now the Impeachment Process begins and let us Welcome President Pence.

    Barring of course another orchestrated? vice president airplane skidding off the runway

    And lest we forget “…
    Oct 27, 2016 · Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence said Friday he is “fine” following his plane skidding off the runway at LaGuardia Airport on Thursday night, adding there were about “10 seconds of uncertainty…”

    Three scenarios that POTUS WILL RELY ON TO STAVE OFF HIS IMPEACHMENT ARE

    1.War with some inferior, warfare incapable nation…

    2.A failed incident targeting himself or a successful one targeting a relative or friend or substantial person in the Republican party

    3.A contrived national security or financial incident which requires his presence for an extended period

    4.A proxy war that, because of its geographical or geopolitical elements will need some hands on requirements from POTUS.

    And yes, while my posit seems to be of a Tom Clancy type disposition, you must remember that Trunk runs his presidency from a chair in front of a television set, watching reruns of Mission Impossible.

    The real president is his advisers and their puppet masters

    I’m sorry if I dont fall in the mould of ascribing proactive intellect to Trunk himself, he is quite a simpleton himself.

    The real manipulators are off stage pulling his strings AND THEY ARE THE SHADOW GOVERNMENT TO FEAR.

    But bo not take de ole man’s words on this, look at Mike Pence.

    Do you or have you ever seen Mike Pence in anything controversial AT ALL?

    All he does is clap for the POTUS DUFUS and grin sheepishly

    Nothing else.

    Oh deeply biased acolyte…the Russian impact on the US elections is 1) a NATIONAL SECURITY issue 2) It was very widespread according to ALL the evidence from Facebook and the other social media sites 3) so it is obviously more insidious than the stupid claims by Klobach et al and cannot be compared to his nonsense of paltry incidences 4) The ONLY people who do not understand that impact of all that on the elections are sycophants like YOU.

    No reasonable (Dem or Repub) has every said that there is evidence of POTUS colluding in any way directly with Vladimir to ‘stuff’ ballot boxes, change votes or any such thing to successfully sway the elections.

    THOSE are FACTS!

    So are you so disturbed and a rabidly pissed partisan that you COMPLETELY dismiss the sensible men and women of the US senate Intel Committee (with majority Republicans) who said in part that:

    ++ … the Kremlin directed Russia’s meddling, interfering specifically to hurt Hillary Clinton … and help Trump

    ++ *…”Our investigation thoroughly reviewed all aspects of the January 2017 ICA, which assessed that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign to target our presidential election and to destabilize our democratic institutions. As numerous intelligence and national security officials in the Trump administration have since unanimously re-affirmed, the ICA findings were ACCURATE and ON POINT.”

    ++ …when the Intelligence Committee said that “Russia interfered in the 2016 US presidential election to help elect Donald Trump” that the assessment was “WELL SUPPORTED AND THE TRADE CRAFT WAS STRONG’.

    Bro you can curse me as much as you like but that does not change the FACTS….your president is a LIAR and you and his acolytes here SUPPORT obfuscation, disinformation and more fibs with personal attacks and utter bunkcum!

    The PROBE is NOT wicked nor unnecessary unless you are a Russia citizen or lacking an once of basic commonsense and integrity!

    “almost certainly invalid
    By DAILY NEWS EDITORIAL BOARD
    NOV 08, 2018 | 5:25 PM

    Our illegal AG: Matthew Whitaker’s appointment is almost certainly invalid
    No good. (Charlie Neibergall / AP)

    Plot twist: The appointment by President Trump of Mueller investigation foe Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, filling the shoes of ousted Jeff Sessions, is probably illegal and unconstitutional, rendering his every order invalid.

    So say leading legal lights across the political spectrum, from former Obama Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal to George Conway (who happens to be married to Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway) to top George W. Bush aide John Yoo.

    To serve, a principal officer — which is what the head of the Justice Department is by any definition — must first get advise and consent of the Senate. That’s well established legal precedent drawn from a plain reading of the words of the government’s founding document.

    Of course in a pinch, before the Senate gives its okay, someone else in the Senate-confirmed DOJ chain of command can step up and fill a leadership gap. But that’s not what Whitaker is; he was Sessions’ chief of staff, not next in line and Senate-approved.

    If Trump wants to argue otherwise, let him make the case to the Supreme Court. See if he can convince five men who purport to revere the original meaning of the Constitution to jump through the logical hoops necessary to flagrantly disregard its plain intent.”
