Peaks and Valleys

Some days our little garden draws a lot of visitors, other days not too many. There is no way to gauge what people are interested in or looking for, because they’re mostly lurkers. That’s fine, most people never comment on anything publicly. Except me, because I don’t much care what anybody thinks. That much should be obvious after more than 6 1/2 years here. Still we persevere, much like the loser of the last presidential election. Except we have morals…and a conscience….and we’re not liars and thieves.

Trump says he won’t fire Mueller, wants probe to wrap up
SOMEBODY, MAYBE THAT BALD-HEADED PRICK TO HIS RIGHT, IS GIVING HIM VERY, VERY BAD ADVICE. MUELLER HAS NO INTENTION OF WRAPPING UP ANYTHING. HE’S GOING FAR AFIELD TO KEEP THIS CHARADE GOING UNTIL THE MIDTERMS OR AFTER.

FBI raid on Paul Manafort’s home indicates aggressive nature of Russia probe
An FBI raid last month at one of the homes of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, provides the clearest evidence so far that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is aggressively pursuing the investigation into the campaign’s dealings with Russia and of possible wrongdoing by Manafort.

WHY WAS THE NEWS OF MUELLER’S RAID ON MANAFORT LEAKED SOONER??
WHY IS IT ONLY NEWS THAT WILL HURT TRUMP GET LEAKED?

Michael Savage on Manafort Raid: “Mueller Trying to Flip Someone”

It was Mueller and Comey by the way, mainly Mueller, in his period, where he had the FBI do the biggest Mafia roundups in New York history. And they have a standard operating procedure, which is that they flip people on the bottom and turning them into cooperating witnesses. And once they have a cooperating witness, they bring the next one down and the next one down.

There’s no question in my mind that this raid on Manafort, which came out of the blue, is Mueller trying to flip someone, if he hasn’t already flipped someone. Maybe he got someone underneath Manafort who flipped, and they got Manafort. They get Manafort, and Manafort’s gonna flip. It’s gonna go right up the chain. And they’re gonna get … a couple of them as cooperating witnesses.

[CtH: And what if there’s no one to flip and no evidence of wrongdoing despite this massive witch hunt?  Wouldn’t that be sweet?!]

Federal Judge Orders State Dept To Search Hillary Aides’ Accounts For Benghazi Records
NO NEED TO GET EXCITED. THE LAW HAS NEVER TOUCHED THE CLINTONS AND NEVER WILL. THEY OPERATE WITH IMMUNITY SINCE THEY ARE, FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES (NOT INTENSIVE PURPOSES), ABOVE THE LAW.

Washington D.C. District Court Judge Amit Mehta, an Obama appointee, ordered State to search the accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s top aides at the State Department, in response to a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Mehta said that the State Department did not do enough to search for all emails it has on its computer systems regarding the Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead.
“It is remarkable that we had to battle both the Obama and Trump administrations to break through the State Department’s Benghazi stonewall. Why are Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions wasting taxpayer dollars protecting Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration?”

[CtH: Here is me praying Pete and I are both as wrong about this as we were about Trump.]

[CtH: I’ll say!  How SICK is it to compare this vile woman with the Son of God!]

“You, our nation, our world, is experiencing a black Friday,” Rev. Bill Shillady wrote to Clinton on Nov. 9, 2016, CNN reported. “Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while.”  One day after Clinton’s stunning defeat at the hands of Trump, Shillady wrote that “life is filled with a lot of Fridays” and Good Friday “represented the day that everything fell apart.”

“Today, you are experiencing a Friday. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming!” Shillady wrote.

Judge Jed Rakoff is handling the defamation lawsuit filed by Sarah Palin against the NY Times in June. “The Complaint alleges that the allegedly false statements of fact that are the subject of the Complaint were contradicted by information already set forth in prior news stories published by the Times.” He continues, “However, these prior stories arguably would only evidence actual malice if the person(s) who wrote the editorial were aware of them.”

So Much Stuff, So Little Space

It was a difficult decision where to begin, since the world is spinning so quickly these days. So I decided to post a memorial for an incredible man and musician who made an indelible mark on America.

Glen Campbell, hit singer and guitarist, dead at 81


I REMEMBER MY GRANDMOTHER LOVED WATCHING THE VARIETY SHOW HE HAD AS A REPLACEMENT ONE SUMMER.

Glen Campbell, the upbeat guitarist from Delight, Arkansas, whose smooth vocals and down-home manner made him a mainstay of music and television for decades, has died, his family announced on Facebook on Tuesday. He was 81.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell … following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease,” a Facebook statement said.

Campbell is best remembered for a string of country-inflected hits that ran from the mid-’60s to the late ’80s: “Gentle on My Mind,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Southern Nights” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” among them.

BY THE NUMBERS: President Trump’s Historic First 200 Days – Promises Kept and Records Broken

YOU’LL NEVER HEAR A WORD OF THIS ON CNN.

Government Assistance — Food Stamps

  • More than 1.1 million fewer Americans on food stamps under President Trump.

Jobs

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,290,000 jobs in his first 200 days (January through July 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than (4,154,000) million jobs in his first 200 days.

Inflation

  • According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trump’s energy policies that are helping average Americans in their pocket books with cheaper gas and electricity. The rate has not yet been reported for July. (Under Obama the inflation rate sank to a scary -2.1% by July of 2009.)

Housing

  • Sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

Regulations

  • One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

After the Coup, What Then?

EXCELLENT READ BY PAT BUCHANAN

If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win.

This is a collaborative enterprise, where everyone protects everyone else’s sources, because all have the same goal: the dumping of Trump. If that requires collusion with criminals, so be it.

Deep State Teams with Fake News: Email Evidence Proves New York Times Soliciting Anti-Trump Bureaucracy Leakers
Emails from a reporter for the New York Times to government employees obtained exclusively by Breitbart News demonstrate that the newspaper’s employees are not just on the receiving end of leaks, but are actually soliciting government employees to become leakers. What’s more, the emails demonstrate the Times colluded with the president of the government union to encourage and solicit these leaks—something that may become highly problematic for both institutions.

Impeachment and Other Liberal Fantasies

The hosts on Redeye Radio overnight yesterday played a cut from some idiot Democrat pundit claiming the party will seize on Trump’s unpopularity to gain the majority in the House in 2018 and “Gasoline” Maxine Waters will be the Speaker. It is hard to imagine anyone more corrupt, amoral, or more fit for residence in a facility for the criminally insane than Nancy Pelosi, but this racist tramp certainly fills the bill. Apparently the Democrat party has devolved into a herd of braying jackasses without humanity and only desiring to control the country until they run it into ruin.

Waters has been screaming incoherently about impeaching the president almost from the day he was elected. You can get away with that when you have a district of single-IQ voters who have re-elected you 22 times based on nothing more than the fact you’re black. Never mind you’ve steered millions to your husband’s bank or paid your daughter 3/4 of a million to mail campaign flyers. They don’t care; steal all the white man’s money you can.

The problem is they believe all the polls showing Trump’s approval rating at about 30%. Polls can be made to show anything, depending on who’s taking them but if they actually try to remove a sitting president based solely on the fact they have a personal animus toward him they may find the going rather difficult.

Is Mueller’s Grand Jury Impeachment Step One?
Sometimes, however, to vote yea or nay on a proposed indictment is not the grand jury’s only option. In certain situations, federal law authorizes a grand jury to file a report detailing its findings, even if criminal charges are not forthcoming. One such situation involves investigations of public officials. Instead of returning an indictment, a grand jury may issue a report that recommends an official’s removal from office.

Rep. Maxine Waters: Trump ‘Believes in Nothing’ and Will Be Impeached by December

“I think he believes in nothing,” Waters said. “I think that he cares about nothing. I think that he’s capable of doing outrageous things.”

“I believe it is possible to impeach him,” she said. “How long is it going to take? I don’t know, but I give it to about December.”

The interviewer then reminded her that the vice president would then become president.

“Could be and we’ll get him next,” she replied.

Maxine Waters Won’t Rule Out All-Black Party

Waters joined “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Monday morning and was asked if it was time for black people to form their own political party.

“No, not at this point,” Waters said. “You have to show that you’re willing and you’re able to put the numbers together and exercise your influence.”

“We still are not voting our influence yet,” she continued. “What we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because that’s where most of us are.”

Waters then suggested that when black people are “strong enough” they may branch out into their own party.

Michael Moore Proposes Plea Deal: Resign and Your Kids Won’t Be ‘Thrown in Jail’

On Friday, anti-Trump activist film producer Michael Moore proposed a plea deal he says only a “malignant narcissist” would turn down.

In a Twitter post, Moore implied that President Donald Trump could trade his presidency for his children’s freedom.

Moore suggested that Trump would be “a malignant narcissist” if he didn’t agree to resign in exchange for criminal investigation and prosecution of his children being dropped – apparently, referring to Democrats’ push for a probe into potential Russian interference in U.S. elections.

The Coup D’Etat Rushes Forward

The media helped him win the Republican nomination and chuckled with glee. This reality TV star, this ego-maniacal showboat would pose no challenge to Mme. Hillary as she pursued the prize she coveted above everything. He drew turn-away crowds of tens of thousands. Hillary couldn’t fill a high school gymnasium. Not to worry, she has the vaunted “blue wall” of states that always, ALWAYS vote Democrat. Then the sh!t hit the fan.

Trump has been a marked man since the day he won. The Democrats and their sycophants in the media have savaged him every day. He wasn’t even allowed a peaceful inauguration day. He had no support from his own party as they have stood on the sidelines, preoccupied with not doing anything that would jeopardize their personal fiefdoms.

The president has assembled a staff through the process of trial and error. Some of his picks have worked well, others he got very bad advice about. The first thing he should have done is fire every last Obama appointee and Democrat career politician. It would leave huge gaps in differing departments, but when you rid your home of pestilence you must be thorough.

He waited far too long to fire James Comey and the Democrats bullied Jeff Sessions into recusing himself. This infuriated the president, who expected loyalty from those who serve under him. This led Rod Rosenstein to appoint uber-liberal Robert Mueller who was given unlimited power and resources and a mandate to find SOMETHING with which to try to force Trump out of office. He has a hand-picked squad of 16 professional Democrat assassins and has just empaneled a grand jury and moved if from Virginia, where Trump has support, to DC where he can get away with almost any dirty trick he chooses. Keep in mind that a grand jury is completely one-sided. The defense is not allowed in the room, the prosecutors can compel anyone to testify, they submit any unsubstantiated evidence without proof and this particular panel is sure to be made up of people who despise Trump. It will not end well. If they can’t pin anything on him, they’ll get his son.

Grand jury subpoenas issued in relation to Russian lawyer, Trump Jr. meeting

Mueller’s use of a grand jury could give him expansive tools to pursue evidence, including issuing subpoenas and compelling witnesses to testify. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported a grand jury was impaneled.


http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/grand-jury-subpoenas-issued-in-relation-to-russian-lawyer-trump-jr-meeting-sources/ar-AApnlMA?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=UE12DHP

3 Reasons Why Trump Should Be Very Concerned That Mueller Impaneled a Grand Jury

#1: The Grand Jury Has Subpoena Power

Federal grand juries have the power to subpoena documents, and witnesses. That means that witnesses who may refuse to speak with investigators will be forced to testify under oath. If they lie, they can be charged with a a crime.

#2 Grand Jury Investigations Often Lead to Criminal Charges

“Typically if you are going to devote prosecutor manpower and agents to investigation, then usually charges will result,” Hockeimer said.

#3 Mueller made this move despite another federal grand jury investigating in Virginia.

We already knew that a grand jury was meeting in Alexandria, Virginia, to probe former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn over his work in the private sector on behalf of foreign interests. The fact that Mueller empaneled another grand jury means that the investigation has grown even wider.

Senators propose bill to protect Robert Mueller from being fired
The bill, introduced Thursday by Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Chris Coons, D-Del., would allow a special counsel who is removed to challenge the firing in court. There, a three-judge panel would decide whether the special counsel’s removal was justified. If the judges decide there was no good cause for firing, the person would be reinstated as special counsel over the wishes of the president.

EVERY MOVE HE MAKES IS LEAKED TO A SAVAGE PRESS

Someone Leaked Classified Transcripts Of Trump’s Phone Calls With Foreign Leaders


The Washington Post on Thursday published portions of classified transcripts of combative phone calls President Trump had earlier this year with the leaders of Mexico and Australia.

The transcripts portray acrimonious conversations between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, largely on the issues of immigration, border wall funding and refugees.

Warner, Ranking Senate Intel Dem: Congress Ought to Investigate Leaked Trump Transcripts


Warner, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told the Daily Beast that the leak is “disturbing.” He said that the president must be able to speak in private with foreign leaders.

“A president of the United States, a governor would tell us they’ve got to be able to have confidential conversations,” Warner said. “And I think it was disgraceful that those [came out].”

http://freebeacon.com/politics/warner-congress-investigate-leaked-transcripts/

THE MOST SHAMEFUL THING TO ME IS THAT NOT ONE REPUBLICAN HAS COME FORWARD IN SUPPORT OF THE PRESIDENT. NOTE THE CLINTONS AND OBAMA HAVE COMMITTED BLATANT REPEATED FELONIES AND NOT A WORD OF PROTEST WAS HEARD. THE DEMOCRATS CIRCLE THE WAGONS WHEN ONE OF THEIR OWN IS IN TROUBLE. THE REPUBLICANS ARE ONLY CONCERNED WITH PROTECTING THEIR ON SORRY ASSES.

The Friday Dish

Given the manner in which the special counsel, Robert Mueller, is expanding his hyper partisan witch hunt into all things Trump it would be no surprise to me if, at some point, the president fires him. He is well within the scope of his executive authority, but the hue and cry from the left would be deafening. I just can’t see Trump allowing this carnival of pain to continue much longer.

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.

MISS OLIVIA IS PLAYING BASEBALL THIS YEAR. TRIED TO CATCH IT WITH HER HEAD.

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.”

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.

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.”

THE DEMOCRATS ARE ALREADY IN A FRENZY TO BRING DOWN TRUMP ANY WAY POSSIBLE. WERE HE TO FIRE MUELLER, A MUSHROOM CLOUD WOULD FORM OVER THE CAPITOL.

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
I’LL BET THE CABBAGE ON JACKASS LEE’S SHOULDER IS SMARTER THAN SHE IS.
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?”

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.

HOW I WISH THAT WERE TRUE. PROBLEM IS WE’RE TOO CIVILIZED.
