The more time I spend away from the toxic waste dump the more difficult it is to wade back into it.

My trip with RJ last Friday went really well. We caught a variety of fish, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and he caught is first walleye. He wanted to keep it, but it was about 3″ too short to be legal.

On Saturday, I watched RJs baseball game and yesterday was Big Sis’ first game of her summer volleyball league.


I enjoy my beautiful grandchildren so much, it’s difficult to consider the violence, the anger, the lies and the blatant hypocrisy that is American politics today.

The one takeaway from the Comey hearings last week was that he was perfectly willing to lie for Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton, but NOT tell the truth for Donald Trump. There were a lot of people, including yours truly, that felt Trump should have canned him, along with every other influential member of Obama’s regime.

The president got some bad advice from Priebus, among others, and he has suffered for it as the leaks and the sabotage of his agenda has gone on from day one. The latest is that he is considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. He never should have given in to the Democrats and appointed anybody. Mueller is a close friend of Comey and his investigative team is stacked with former Obama operatives.

Comey and Mueller have a history as a Deep State tag team

According to Michael Isikoff, writing in 2006, the FBI (then headed by Mueller) and an unnamed “senior Department of Justice official” were advised in October 2003 that Armitage was the man who leaked Plame’s identity – and yet two months later, upon his appointment to be deputy attorney general, James Comey appointed his friend Patrick Fitzgerald to investigate the leak. It’s hard to believe he didn’t at the time know full well who the leaker was.

Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection indicates that Comey’s testimony suggests that Mueller is already going beyond the narrow mandate of Acting Attorney General Rosenstein and considering whether the president’s discussion with him about General Flynn constitutes “obstruction.”

Trump at risk from Comey/Mueller: If “they don’t get you on the crime, they get you on the process”

Robert Mueller, if he is going to consider the alleged obstruction of justice asserted by James Comey,  should not be the prosecutor or investigator in this because he is friendly with a key witness, James Comey.  So that’s what I meant when I said ‘friends should not be investigating friends.’  And Robert Mueller, if he is considering Trump’s asserted obstruction of justice, cannot and should not be the investigator on this case.”

Members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Legal Team Donated To Democrats -FEC

One of the lawyers, James Quarles donated to Barack Obama and to Hillary Clinton.
Once again, nothing to see here….

Three of the five lawyers have donations in FEC records. They gave overwhelmingly to Democrats, totaling more than $53,000 since 1988.

James Quarles, whom Mueller brought over from his old firm, WilmerHale, has given nearly $33,000 to political campaigns over the years. He gave money to Democratic presidential candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Comey’s SECOND Meeting With Loretta Lynch Reveals He Confronted Her About Political Interference

Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.

In multiple private sessions over the last few months, Comey has told lawmakers about a second, later confrontation with Lynch shortly before the email probe was shut down.

Trump Considering Firing Special Counsel Mueller …Update: Not Likely

The whole purpose of the special counsel is to have a prosecutor from outside the government and outside of the normal chain of command because inherent conflicts render the Justice Department incapable of handling it. So, now the special counsel is a close friend (mentor/mentee relationship) with the star witness, who by his own admission leaked the memos at least in part to engineer the appointment of a special counsel. Only in Washington. You can’t make this stuff up.”

Take a chill pill, Anti-Trumpers

2017_05 19 Outrage du jour by Terrell

The following is from Catholic Vote:

The facts at present are plain: ongoing investigations by Congress and the FBI have yet to uncover any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. And those responsible for pursuing the truth have repeatedly affirmed that their investigations continue, unencumbered, as they should.

The appointment of Robert Mueller now allows a widely respected former FBI Director to carry out a fair and responsible investigation without the hysterics we’ve seen the past few days. If there is evidence of criminal activity, obstruction of justice, or collusion with Russia, then the facts will eventually emerge — and appropriate action should be taken.

Until then … we must resist calls to bring the government to a halt over speculation and anonymous leaks. Talk of impeachment at this juncture is simply reckless. The public deserves facts, not partisan hit jobs.

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.
