Donald Trump On North Korea In 1999 – Meet The Press w/ Tim Russert

For those who still think that Donald is some yahoo that knows little, take a look at this interview done in back 1999.  Meanwhile Clinton, Bush and of course, Obama let North Korea get the big one.

Grassley to hold hearings on ‘Russian interference’ no mention of sins of Obama clan for review

Interesting isn’t it. The GOP can’t get themselves together to repeal Obamacare, but they sure can pull themselves together to beat on Trump. We have the usual suspects. But let’s pile on. Senators prepare bill to block firing of special counsel – Chicago Tribune

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is working on legislation that would block the firing of special counsels without judicial review. DemocratsSheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Thursday they are among the senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee who are working with Graham on the effort.

Oh, but that’s not enough. Grassley will pull out the Bazooka and hold hearings to try to nail Trump et al. No time for hearings on the zillions of illegal activity by the Obama clan, but plenty of time for Trump. Just wait until 2018. In one big last hooray, let us primary these sad representations of the GOP back to their home towns for keeps:

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is amping up the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, weighing whether to issue subpoenas for Donald Trump Jr. and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Bloomberg News first reported Monday.

Grassley’s committee is conducting its probe in addition to the Senate Intelligence Committee and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigations, which some– including Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn — have said they feel is inappropriate.

While the move has received some pushback, Grassley stands by his decision to push forward with the investigation alongside Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, arguing it’s their duty to look into whether there was any sort of obstruction of justice.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham praised Grassley’s efforts, saying he is loyal to the party but concerned with the greater good of the country.

Al Gore and his galloping paranoia – or how to sell his ‘sequel’

No doubt you have caught the new purge coming. Time to rid ourselves of our pets because they are adding to Global Warming. Whats happening? Russia, Russia, Russia wearing thin with the media? So lets’ resurrect Climate Change again. Let’s help Gore’s new sequel to his ” convenient lies’

While trolling through the news of the day,  I bumped into Al Gore who breeches into the news cycle. First glimpse was his pronouncement that he indeed had won Florida. Okay, the guy needs to feed the fake news cycle, I will let that one be. Then I bumped into this little video clip and what became clear is the poor feller had lost his marbles. I mean can you blame him? All but for some “hanging chads” he might have been king. So in case we weary of Trump just remind ourselves of the IED’s in the form of Gore and Hillary that we didn’t step on. Enjoy the clip… I think you will. We will learn about “rain bombs.”

CNN had a Town Hall meeting with Al Gore called “The Climate Crisis” where he made even more predictions about the end of the world from global warming.

Half of Detroit’s eight Mayoral candidates are felons

What to post on a Saturday. How about this one for a change of pace? Detroit is preparing to live up to their high standards of superb candidates for Mayor. I don’t seem to see any GOP candidates in the collection. For the previous Mayor’s agenda –What Do You Do With Detroit? Bulldoze It

Well, Detroit’s mayor has an idea: Bulldoze it.

Mayor Dave Bing is apparently working on a radical plan that would bulldoze a quarter of the city — some of the most desolate areas — and return it to farmland, the way it was before the automobile. Any residents still there would be relocated to stronger neighborhoods.

Detroit — Half of the eight mayoral hopefuls on Detroit’s primary ballot next week have been convicted of felony crimes involving drugs, assault or weapons, a Detroit News analysis shows.

Three were charged with gun crimes and two for assault with intent to commit murder. Some of the offenses date back decades, the earliest to 1977. The most recent was in 2008.

Political consultant Greg Bowens said there are candidates with past hardships in every election cycle. It’s not something unique to Detroit or the political arena in general, he said.

“Black marks on your record show you have lived a little and have overcome some challenges,” said Bowens, a former press secretary to Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and NAACP activist. “They (candidates) deserve the opportunity to be heard, but they also deserve to have the kind of scrutiny that comes along with trying to get an important elected position.”

Comey and McCabe back in March, blocked the arrest of Awan’s wife as she was fleeing UPDATE!

Desperate Debbie

Wasserman Schultz Says Laptop She Sought To Keep From Police Was Awan’s, Not Hers

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz never actually saw the computer she fought to block the Capitol Police from examining as evidence in a criminal case against her IT aide by saying it was hers, she told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Thursday.

She threatened “consequences” on May 18  for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.

See earlier post:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz threaten’s Police Chief over hacking scandal, wants evidence returned to her

Back to the original post:

What is amazing is that the FBI did stop Imran Awan at least at the airport. Someone apparently didn’t get Comey’s message to let the Awan clan get out-of-town. The rest of the family was permitted to leave by apparently no less than okayed by Comey. Just more proof that the swamp includes the FBI and Comey in particular:

Debbie threatening Capitol Police

Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March.

But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States. Her arrest in fact was blocked by then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI sources said.

So federal agents and Capitol Police watched as the former Democratic congressional aide and suspected bank fraudster stepped onto Qatar Air1ines Flight 708 to Doha, Qatar, on her way to Lahore, Pakistan with her three daughters, bulging luggage and $12,400 in undocumented cash — a federal crime in itself. Awan had essentially been given a license to disappear from the clutches of US law enforcement, never likely to return to the United States. She was in the wind, courtesy of the FBI.

 “This was a call from the top, Comey and McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.”

Comey has since been fired and McCabe was Acting FBI Director until the new FBI director was recently sworn in.

As a sidebar, Alvi Awan would also have served as a key witness in the emerging case building against Wasserman Schultz, the DNC, and what role Hillary Clinton played into the emerging labyrinth of Awan-related security breaches.

Dick and Loretta Durbin – Feeding at the trough of the American Taxpayers

Don’t you love these sanctimonious tweeps who feed at the trough? The new thing is you just have your wife scurry about Congress and other governmental agencies in the role as a “lobbyist” and guess what happens? A little “something” finds its way into a bill. One of the most egregious is Congressman’s Mike Rodgers wife, In case you missed it and why the Benghazi hearing never got anywhere. Rodgers faux Benghazi report and his wife’s Defense interests But let me not get ahead of myself. Let’s look at Durbin.

Flashback to The Chicago Tribune . It appears Senator Dick Durbin’s wife is a lobbyist . It appears Dick Durbin voted on the Department of Education budget which had money that wound up with Eastern Illinois University.

Loretta Durbin, the wife of Sen. Dick Durbin, began lobbying in 1998. The following list at the link below includes her clients since 2000, the earliest year for which state lobbying disclosure records are available online. Her Springfield-based firms have lobbied the governor’s office, the General Assembly and state agencies for its clients, but she said she does not lobby at the federal level to avoid conflicts of interest with her husband.
