“Making this memo public will almost certainly impede our ability to conduct clandestine activities operating outside any legal or judicial system on an international scale,” said Wray, noting that it was essential that mutual trust exist between the American people and the vast, mysterious cabal given free rein to use any tactics necessary to conduct surveillance on U.S. citizens or subvert religious and political groups. “If we take away the people’s faith in this shadowy monolith exempt from any consequences, all that’s left is an extensive network of rogue, unelected intelligence officers carrying out extrajudicial missions for a variety of subjective, and occasionally personal, reasons.”
Al Franken is staying in the senate. John Conyers is staying in the House. Bill Clinton will die a free and wealthy man.
If anyone needs to rationalize a vote for Roy Moore, there it is.
“But what Roy Moore
did is accused of is so much worse than what Al Franken is accused of actually did.”
Fine then. Let us remember then that a Democrat Congressman sodomized a sixteen or seventeen year old House Page, was re-elected six times by his Democrat constituents, and had a Wildlife Sanctuary named for him by his Democrat colleagues. (He remains an LGBT hero.)
So, basically, the voters of Alabama have a choice between a guy who was possibly forty years ago a moral reprobate, and a guy who will vote in lockstep with Kamala Harris and Chuck Schumer on abortion, gun control, tax policy, and amnesty for illegal immigrants. for a lot of people, this is a sucky choice. But it is what it is.
When this story broke, I was sure Roy Moore was toast; and he probably would have been if the Al Franken story hadn’t broken on top of Gloria Allred getting involved and promoting an accuser with a forged yearbook and a story that fell apart like an IKEA entertainment center. He probably has a shot now that the Democrats have demonstrated it was always about power and never about women. He really should send Al and Gloria a nice thank you note for the lifeline they threw him.
I also don’t think it’s gone unnoticed that certain Republicans who were outspoken about Roy Moore have been conspicuously silent about Al Franke.
On an unrelated note, Colin Kaepenick is old enough to run for Senate against Dianne Feinstein. Wouldn’t that be fun to watch?
The recent White House shake-ups (resignations of Spicer, Priebus and Scaramucci) seemed to have driven the previous “Trump Jr” frenzy from the news. But it’s back. And all of it may be connected – on the themes of leakers, scheming advisers, and Trump (possibly) not being in control of his own crew.
The new brouhaha is a story from The Washington Post which claims that President Trump personally dictated the initial Trump Jr. statement about Trump Jr.’s short meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2016. Naturally, WaPo tries to make it all sound worse than it is. The question arises: How did WaPo get the story?
One clue could be that the WaPo story praises Jared, Ivanka, and White House aides Hope Hicks and Josh Raffel. The praise is traditionally a signal that they are valued sources.
But the leakers of this particular story could be others. Cernovich claims that leaks are coming from White House interns, and/or civilians related to Air Force One. He says:
With Mooch out of the way, Jared Kushner’s interns feel free to record conversations and leak away. Indeed, people on Air Force One are leaking damaging stories to the Washington Post…
Pro-Trump interns were blocked by Kushner and Reince Preibus, as I reported back on May…These [actual, anti-Trump] interns are now recording White House conversations and sharing those recordings with the media…
Trump gave the power of personnel to swamp monster Johny DeStefano, who squeezed out Trump’s most loyal supporters…HR McMaster has also been hard at work purging the NSC of anyone who puts America First…McMaster has been pulling security clearances of Trump supporters…Never Trump’er Brian Hook is in complete control of the State Department…Hook is using this power to block Trump hires at State…Trump is being abused like a beta male by the GOP establishment, McMaster, and Never Trump’ers like Brian Hook.
Interesting, if true. Is it? All I know for the moment, is: Cernovich’s pattern is to wrap hyperbole around grains of truth that nobody else had (also known as “scoops”).
*IF* Trump’s presidency does fail in the end, the probable reason will be this set of issues: that his people were working at cross purposes, allowing The Swamp to infiltrate and consume them all.
The “Trump Jr.” story is evolving into a story of *Democrat* collusion with Russia.
- We learned yesterday that Natalia Veselnitskaya is basically a Democrat activist (as well as anti-Magnitsky) and in 2015, the Obama administration moved Heaven and Earth to get Veselnitskaya into the U.S.
Why would Democrats want her to meet (under false pretenses or whatever) with the Trump campaign? Well…
- Loretta Lynch allegedly wiretapped Manafort’s phone during the Trump Jr. meeting. If true, it would be illegal wiretapping; in June 2016, the Obama administration had not yet gotten the FISA warrant(s) to do surveillance on the Trump campaign.
- Was Fusion GPS (hired by Democrats to get the infamous, fake “Trump dossier” going) present at the meeting, as part of Natalia Veselnitskaya’s party? Why, yes they were. From the same link:
The meeting included Donald Trump Jr., Manafort, Jared Kushner, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Fusion GPS associate Rinat Akhmetshin – a Russian-American lobbyist who confirmed today that he was present during the June 2016 sit-down.
Incidentally, Akhmetsin was an unregistered Russian lobbyist working against the Magnitsy Act – same as Veselnitskaya and, for that matter, same position on the Magnitsky Act (against it) as Hillary Clinton.
- Is Fusion GPS now lawyering up? Possibly.
Fusion GPS, the firm behind the discredited 35 page Trump-Russia ‘dossier,’ was co-founded by Glenn Simpson, who abruptly canceled his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week in light of recent events linking the democrat opposition research firm to a second attempt to take down the Trumps.
Also discussed in this article.
- For fun: In 1996, Time magazine openly cheered U.S. interference in Russian elections.
First, a few items on the “Trump dossier” (which I previously backgrounded here).
- The Washington Post has further discredited one of the dossier’s most salacious claims.
- Did John “Landslide” McCain have anything to do with the dossier? A British defamation lawsuit shows that, at the least, McCain had exceptionally early access to it.
According to a new court document in the British lawsuit, counsel for defendants Steele and Orbis repeatedly point to McCain, R-Ariz., a vocal Trump critic, and a former State Department official as two in a handful of people known to have had copies of the full document before it circulated among journalists and was published by BuzzFeed…Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Moscow and a Russia adviser to former Prime Minister Tony Blair, discussed the 35-page dossier with McCain…
The British court document also confirmed that Washington research firm Fusion GPS, co-founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, had been hired to conduct opposition research by one of Trump’s GOP primary opponents. Later, Democrats paid for the same research on Trump’s past and alleged Russian ties.
It’s funny how Fusion GPS keeps popping up. But I didn’t know that Fusion GPS also had GOP (probably #NeverTrumper) connections, as well as Democrat.
- Natalia Veselnitskaya drips with Democrat sympathies and ties to Fusion GPS / the “Trump dossier”.
Apart from her social media posts, photos of her sitting with Democrats at a Senate hearing, and so forth, the Obama administration explicitly gave her a special pass into the U.S. in 2015. Why?
That makes it all the more possible that her intent in getting a fake meeting with the Trump campaign was to set them up for the FISA warrants that enabled the Obama administration to spy on them.
Either Congress or a Special Counsel should now investigate those FISA warrants and the Obama administration’s spying on its domestic political opponents.
- Are TrumpRussia and #NothingGate really Hillarygate? The connection between Hillary/DNC, Fusion GPS and the “Trump dossier” needs investigating because:
This connection has raised the question of whether Kremlin prepared the dossier as part of a disinformation campaign to sow chaos in the US political system. If ordered and paid for by Hillary Clinton associates, Russia Gate is turned on its head as collusion between Clinton operatives (not Trump’s) and Russian intelligence…
Former FBI director, James Comey, refused to answer questions about Fusion and the Steele dossier in his May 3 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Comey responded to Lindsey Graham’s questions about Fusion GPS’s involvement “in preparing a dossier against Donald Trump that would be interfering in our election by the Russians?” with “I don’t want to say.”…
The dossier was not, as the press reports, written by Steele…In Stalin’s day, some of the most valued KGB (NKVD) agents were called “novelists,” for their ability to conjure up fictional plots and improbable tales to use against their enemies…
- In keeping with the hysteria, House Democrats are jumping the gun on impeachment.
- News of the Weird: Gavin Newsom tells Morning Joe that the whole Trumprussia issue is a loser for the Democrats. (Weird for Newsom to be that honest.)
- Remember how Hillary gave away 20% of America’s uranium supply to Vladimir Putin, apparently in exchange for a huge speaking fee for Bill and millions in Clinton Foundation donations?
Here’s another aspect, that I hadn’t realized: Hillary was a key opponent of the Magnitsky Act that punishes Putin. So, more Hillary-Russia collusion?
- The FBI has released some documents on the Hillary e-mail investigation. Quick hint: She non-cooperated, in a way that obstructed justice.
Another piece falls into place, of a mosaic in which Democrats set out in 2016 to create a false appearance of collusion between President Trump and Russia. It’s pretty devious.
First, you need to know about something called the Magnitsky Act.
- Congress passed it in 2012, “intending to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009.” (Wiki; or BBC’s account here.)
- It prevents 18 Russian officials from entering the U.S. and freezes their assets.
- The Russian government (Putin regime) disputes how Magnitsky died and therefore, furiously disputes the act’s appropriateness.
- Russia responded in 2012 with their own blacklist on 18 U.S. officials.
- The list included Preet Bharara, former US Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara went on to be fired earlier this year by Trump, then hired by Special Counsel Mueller to investigate Trump.
- Russia also responded by banning U.S. adoptions of Russian children.
- Natalia Veselnitskaya is a lawyer connected to the Russian government, who lobbies against the Magnitsky Act (e.g., to get it repealed).
The report is that on June 9, 2016, Jared Kushner and Donald Trump, Jr. met briefly with Veselnitskaya. Per The New York Times, Trump Jr. said: “We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children…there was no follow up. I was asked to attend the meeting by an acquaintance, but was not told the name of the person I would be meeting with beforehand.”
Guess what? The name Fusion GPS pops up again.
Mark Corallo, a spokesman for President Trump’s legal team, told Circa:
We have learned from both our own investigation and public reports that the participants in the meeting misrepresented who they were and who they worked for. Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier.
I’m not taking a position on the Magnitsky Act, here. (It may be a reasonable response to Putin regime corruption or murder.) The point is the intrigue.
- Democrats pay Fusion GPS to dirty-up Trump. Among other things, they create that fake Trump dossier, alleging a variety of non-existent Trump-Russia connections.
- As part of it (and this is the new bit), a Fusion GPS operative gets Kushner and Trump Jr. to take a brief meeting – probably “for the children” or something – with someone who turns out to be Veselnitskaya.
- I’m guessing that Fusion GPS adds the meeting to the Steele dossier, making it seem Trump could be involved with Veselnitskaya/Putin to undermine the Magnitsky Act. I’m guessing that the meeting also alienates Preet Bharara, when he hears of it.
- Then the dossier is used as a basis for getting the NSA and FBI to investigate or surveil candidate Trump.
- Which is then a basis for Susan Rice “unmasking”, leaks to create constant suspicion in the media, etc.
I admit that, if Fusion GPS weren’t involved, I’d be less sanguine; the Veselnitskaya meeting could seem suspicious. But, on current information, Fusion GPS is involved. That screams “election dirty tricks”; the more so as it fits into a known pattern of Democrat misdirection on Russia.
So much for the Veselnitskaya meeting. The larger questions remain:
- When the DNC was hacked in 2016 (allegedly – I still figure it probably wasn’t), why did the DNC withhold critical evidence from the FBI? What were they afraid of the FBI finding out?
- Were they afraid the FBI would find out the extent of the DNC’s dirty tricks with Fusion GPS? Or perhaps, the extent of AG Loretta Lynch’s alleged collusion with Hillary or the Democrats?
As Rush, Hannity, etc. have been pointing out lately, eight months of baseless Trump-Russia collusion allegations seem finally to be blowing up in the faces of the Democrats, Controlled Media and Deep State.
In a recent poll, 73% of Americans said the investigations are causing Congress to lose focus, 64% said they’re hurting the country, 56% said it’s time to move on, and 52% said they don’t believe Trump did any collusion.
And the story itself is taking a few turns. First, I’d like to give the background on something called the Trump Dossier.
- It’s a salacious report on candidate Trump that was put together (in 2015 or 16?) by a former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele.
- His work was sloppy, containing (among other things) provably-false tales of Trump associates meeting Russians in Europe, and probably-false tales of Trump doing bizarre sexual practices. (OK, tame practices by gay standards.)
- Steele was paid to produce the dossier by a company called Fusion GPS.
- Many suspect that Fusion GPS was paid ultimately by Democrats and/or #NeverTrumpers, and was hired precisely to do a hit piece (something shoddy and salacious).
- The dossier was passed to the FBI and other U.S. agencies. Although they knew it was false in its most serious claims (or should have known), they appear to have used it as a basis for investigations on Trump and as a roadmap for questioning witnesses.
- Also, some suspect that the Obama administration may have used the dossier to obtain their secret FISA warrants and/or NSA surveillance on Trump, during and after the 2016 campaign.
- We need to know on that last point because, *if true*, it would be explosive: one would have to “connect the dots” of Hillary or DNC paying a foreigner for a bogus report on Trump, Obama using the report as a bogus reason to spy on candidate Trump, Susan Rice “unmasking” the data and distributing it within the Obama government, and then leakers possibly leaking Trump campaign secrets to media, DNC and/or Hillary. Quite a trick.
It’s backfiring on the Democrats because at long last, the Senate Judiciary committee is investigating Fusion GPS and who was behind the bogus dossier.
Next, I’d like to discuss The Washington Post’s blockbuster article last Friday on Russian election hacking, a game-changer.
WaPo is known for “burying the lede”: putting a title/frame on a story that tries to mask the important revelations within it. This article is titled “Obama’s secret struggle to punish Russia for Putin’s election assault”. Thus, WaPo’s frame is: Russian election hacking is real and isn’t Obama a lonely hero for having tried to punish Russia?
But the article’s details tell a different story.
- Everyone agrees, still, that Russia didn’t change a single vote. In that respect, the 2016 election was perfectly fair and un-hacked.
- The CIA did report to Obama in 2016 that Russia was trying to do cyber-crime on various U.S. targets, including both the DNC and RNC.
- For five months, Obama dithered and considered various responses and, in the end, he did…nothing. Until after the election (when he expelled some Russian diplomats, tightened some sanctions, and fanned the flames of protest and questioning Trump’s legitimacy).
“It is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend,” said a former senior Obama administration official involved in White House deliberations on Russia [in the months before the election]. “I feel like we sort of choked.”
I want to make clear that I still do not take this “Russia hacking” narrative at face value. My reasons:
- Still no evidence. The WaPo article doesn’t actually provide any.
- After Wikileaks Vault 7 (including revelations that the CIA itself routinely hacks things and leaves Russian fingerprints), there is no reason to take the CIA’s word on anything – without evidence.
- Also, Russia could have tried to hack into stuff – but with little or no effect.
- In regard to the “DNC emails”, at least, it is still very plausible the leaker was Seth Rich, a DNC insider. Because Wikileaks dropped many hints about it. (At this point, yes I trust their hints more than the CIA’s.)
- And it still doesn’t matter who leaked the “DNC emails” because they were 100% true and relevant information that American voters deserved. If it was Russia, they did not attack our nation or our democracy; only our 2 major-party Establishments. (Big difference.)
- It is still exceedingly odd that the DNC denied FBI investigators access to their computers after the leaks. Instead, the DNC spoon-fed the FBI a report on supposed Russian hacking from another shoddy, DNC-paid company, CrowdStrike.
But let’s say it’s all true. Most observers agree that the major countries all try to hack each other (or spy), and to influence each other’s elections. And that Russia and the U.S. have been doing it to each other for 70 years or more. Why should 2016 be an exception? In that case,
- It is all the more strange and inappropriate that the DNC didn’t let the FBI in to look at their servers and network, after the alleged “DNC email” hack.
- It is strange and inappropriate that Obama didn’t defend the U.S. constitution (as his oath requires) by telling the American public. Obama was no stranger to stirring up trouble with Russia (see: Ukraine coup, 2014). Why wouldn’t he, here? Some guesses:
- He’s just ineffectual?
- The Russian interference was routine (see above); much less of a deal than WaPo is now making of it?
- Obama didn’t want to draw attention to Hillary’s corrupt Russia dealings?
- He didn’t want to draw attention to Democrats having serious problems with security; like, you know, Hillary’s e-mail scandal?
- He didn’t want to draw attention to Hillary’s hypocritical interference in Russian elections?
- He thought Hillary would win, and didn’t want any Russia messes tainting her presidency in the public’s mind? (This is WaPo’s theory. But then, when Trump won, Obama was suddenly OK with tainting the next President?)
- Or: Deep down, Obama didn’t want Hillary to win? (This is Rush’s theory.)
- It is still strange and inappropriate that leading Democrats want to blame Republicans – and the American people – in all this. For example, from Rep. Adam Schiff:
He said many groups inadvertently abetted Russia’s campaign, including Republicans who refused to confront Moscow and media organizations that eagerly mined the troves of hacked emails.
In other words, damn the American people for opening their eyes and reading those 100% genuine DNC emails!
In short: If WaPo’s story is true, then instead of Trump-Russia collusion, we should be looking at Obama-Russia collusion and Obama-Hillary collusion. This is the game-changer.
Trumprussia was always “mostly bullsh*t”, as we learned Tuesday. The real story would be if the Russian government interfered in U.S. elections – and President Obama let them. Then made a big deal of it later – just to undermine President Trump. Now *that’s* attacking American democracy.
In every plausible version of this mess,
- Someone in the government spread around the fake Trump dossier (when they should have ignored/discredited it).
- The DNC hid an alleged crime scene from FBI investigators.
- Susan Rice wrongly “unmasked” data on domestic political opponents.
- Obama failed to do a thing about Russian interference; until it was time for him, and various Deep State leakers, to undermine a lawful new President whom they just didn’t like.
Figuring out what’s happening in Washington – under the surface, with the Deep State factions – is a guessing game. Highly uncertain. Of course I don’t “know anything”, in the sense of having sources. I read the tea leaves as best I can, and I guess.
When President Trump unexpectedly did a huge Saudi arms deal, I had a feeling that former FBI Director Comey’s testimony would then turn out as a net win for Trump. What’s the connection? Hard to explain. I’m going to say some stuff now which could easily be crap; feel free to shoot it down in the comments, or to add your own ideas.
…in which Our Brrrrrrrrave Gal approved the transfer of 20% of the U.S. ongoing supply of uranium to Russian control, while taking millions in Russian- and/or deal-related donations.
I’m following this New York Times article from April 2015:
…the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, [took] over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal…brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain…
At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
…the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States…the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among [them] was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
At the time, both Rosatom and the United States government made promises intended to ease concerns…Those promises have been repeatedly broken, records show…
Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown. [ed: Riiiiiight.] But the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors…
The article continues with pages of details. One tiny sample:
The path to a Russian acquisition of American uranium deposits began in 2005 in Kazakhstan, where the Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra orchestrated his first big uranium deal, with Mr. Clinton at his side.
…several months later, Mr. Giustra had donated $31.3 million to Mr. Clinton’s foundation.
Did the Clintons hide some large donations, possibly showing consciousness of guilt? Yes. Example:
To judge from [Clinton] disclosures…the only Uranium One official to give to the Clinton Foundation was Mr. Telfer, the chairman, and the amount was relatively small: no more than $250,000, and that was in 2007, before talk of a Rosatom deal began percolating.
But a review of tax records in Canada, where Mr. Telfer has a family charity called the Fernwood Foundation, shows that he donated millions of dollars more, during and after the critical time when the foreign investment committee was reviewing his deal with the Russians.
By the way, I didn’t know that “While the United States gets one-fifth of its electrical power from nuclear plants, it produces only around 20 percent of the uranium it needs, and most plants have only 18 to 36 months of reserves…”
- Why would NYT publish such an article? Why in April 2015? On whose hidden agenda?
To be clear: I’m glad they gave us the info. But NYT is usually pro-Hillary. Why would they do something that undercuts her? Because Schweizer’s book was about to come out anyway?
- Why has no Special Counsel ever been appointed to look into all this?
UPDATE: Do the Clintons profit personally from the Clinton Foundation? [Read more…]
For the last 100 years – and, especially for the last 8 years under President Obama – more and more Americans have become feckless dependents of government.
They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.
And they are indeed feckless. They gladly believe and spread the most ridiculous things on zero evidence. For example, they choose a criminally dishonest politician (Hillary Clinton) to be president. When she doesn’t quite win the election, they gladly believe and spread rumors that the guy who did win is a Russian spy – on zero evidence, again – and chant “F*ck [him]!” at important political conventions.
On the other side are ordinary Americans who more-or-less believe in God, common sense, and supporting themselves through work. Again, they may be rich, middle class or poor. They choose 2 business people in a row to be president. The most recent one might not be a great role model in some ways, but at least he says sensible things in a forthright, unafraid manner. When he wins the election, he sets himself to the task of reviving America’s economy and manufacturing base – only to be undermined by the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents, spreading their nonsense.
It’s a mortal conflict. And one side knows it: the feckless government dependents. Because America is fast reaching the point where it can’t afford to support them any longer. They, the cancer, are about to kill the host. They, the cancer, must be controlled and cut back – so that the rest of America can survive, and perhaps revive a little.
They, the feckless government dependents, know it deep-down. And, being out-of-control like any late-stage cancer, they are desperate to deny it and to continue a system – their own system – that promises to extract every last drop of life and treasure that can be extracted from normal Americans.
It’s Producers vs. Looters. Understand that the Producers are people of all classes and walks of life. Likewise, the Looters are people of all classes and walks of life.
And so we arrive at the political struggles of the last seven months. President Trump isn’t perfect. I did not support him. I still don’t support him, whenever and wherever I may disagree with him. But, somehow (and although I never wanted it), he became a leader for the Producers – or at least for the opponents of America’s looting, criminal Establishment. Imperfect Mr. Trump is the president we’ve got. And the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents are determined to destroy him.
Thus the endless, utter nonsense they spew each day. I’m not sure what to do about it. I know that supporting Trump blindly will not help. But tolerating nonsense will also not help.
The only thing I know how to do, that might help in some tiny way, is to keep telling the truth as I see it unfolding around me.
Or posting links.
- Kurt Schlichter rightly calls the last several months of nonsense a ‘coup’ attempt against the People’s lawfully elected President.
- As does William A. Jacobson.
- Stephen Kruiser on the media’s new lows in the Age of Trump.
Schlichter sums it up well: “Someone came to Washington who wasn’t part of the club, and that’s intolerable. So they are desperate to expel him, and by extension, us. Every day will be a crisis, every action he takes will be the worst thing that has ever happened, and every step towards keeping his promises a crime.”
Each day, let us dedicate ourselves anew to rejecting the nonsense. And to offering truth, in its place.
