Evidence that the Chris Steele “Dossier” was actually laundered intelligence information pulled from the U.S. system is exposed by the Cohen-Prague "mistake". They got the wrong Michael Cohen. The FISA search turned up a Michael Cohen traveling to Prague. It was the wrong Michael Cohen. However, that mistaken result was passed on to Chris Steele and it made its way into the dossier. Absent a FISA…
“The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very…
For five days now hundreds of Central Americans — children, women and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made…
Apparently, Google execs have yet another issue with Lionel Nations talking about the "birther" issue by refusing to allow any forum discussion. It's going to be time soon to regulate these giant social-media forums.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program in the executive branch of the American government, allows the children (who are not American citizens) of illegal aliens to legally reside and work in the United States. According to …
I certainly hope Pres. Trump's tax plan achieves all he wishes, and more, but I see it dimmed just a tad by the Senate's failure to eliminate the "Carried Interest" loophole, and the Child Tax Credit omission, allowing illegal alien parents to receive these benefits.
As I am writing this post, something has just occurred to me. What do these two omissions have in common, something that may well explain why they were left out of conference negotiations?…
I sure hope this so-called: "Child Tax Credit expansion" proposal isn't a ploy to continue allowing illegal aliens to collect the Child Tax credit using their children's TINs rather than their working parent's social security number? If true, this would represent the opening salvo of a new conspiracy by the Gang of 8 to use Pres. Trump's Tax Cut initiative to force incentives for illegal aliens down our throats.*
“The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit,” *stated Judicial Watch Tom Fitton.* “Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.”
I know this is somewhat off subject, but I want to give a big shout-out to the NFL's fledgling attempt to cover its games in the new 3-D format. It's outrageous! It's as if you are standing right there on the sidelines. Marvelous! I mean, there is one scene from Week 10 where the Falcon QB (Matt Ryan) fires a pass into the end zone from about the 10 yard line and it seems like the ball is coming straight at you when, all of a sudden, a Falcon receiver (Hardy #14 ) comes across the field…
Bill Moyers: Interactive Timeline: Everything We Know About Russia and President Trump.
When it comes to Donald Trump, his campaign and their dealings with Russia past and present, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the players without a scorecard. We have one, of sorts — a deeply comprehensive timeline detailing what actually happened and what’s still happening in the ever-changing story of the president, his inner circle and a web of Russian oligarchs, hackers and government…
As a strong Trump deplorable, I think I am going to be sick over Trump's support for killing a new rule allowing class-action lawsuits against banks. What is he thinking? His flimsy excuse for supporting this U.S. Chamber of Crypto-Fascist, Crony Commerce sponsored legislation is to avoid litigation costs, which would simply be passed down to consumers. What nonsense! Even if that was true, market competition would deal with this issue, assuming there still is a robust competition within the…

After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama Household Income Hits 50-Year High
Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.
As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.
By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.
So, how’s The Donald doing?
Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.
That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.
The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!!
Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It
A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...
That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.
“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.
“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”
That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.
A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.
The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.
Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.
Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.
While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.
Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
