Dobbs, Jarrett – MUELLER CHEAP SHOT,
State Dept Angers Judge, Still No CLINTON COUNSEL
{rickwells.us} ~ Lou Dobbs and Gregg Jarrett discuss President Trump’s response to the predawn raid at Paul Manafort’s home and the juvenile nature of the obvious tactic and what message it was intended to send... Trump was asked if the raid was appropriate, to which he responded, “I thought it was a very, very strong signal or whatever,” adding, “they do that very seldom, so I was surprised to see it.” Dobbs points out that President Trump was clearly being very careful with his words, but that this was “sort of a tin-horn, two-bit move on the part of the not so special counsel.” Jarrett agrees, saying, “It was exactly that. It was an effort to try to instill fear and intimidate Paul Manafort.” Jarrett says, “I wouldn’t be surprised if his defense attorneys really went after the FBI and the special counsel for this raid. They allegedly seized some documents that are completely privileged and protected. The attorney-client privilege and work product communications. So, the FBI and special counsel could get spanked over this thing but clearly a federal judge signed off on it. I really wonder why since he was cooperating and providing them with information.”...  http://rickwells.us/dobbs-jarrett-fbi-cheap-shot-state-dept-angers-judge-still-no-2nd-counsel/

Mauro on Fox: If North Korea
Has Mini Nukes, So Does Iran
by Clarion Project
{clarionproject.org} ~ Clarion Project's national security analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro, explains that if North Korea has miniaturized nuclear warheads to fit onto ICBMs, then we should assume Iran does, as well. He also advocates a strategy aimed at empowering the North Korean people as the best way of pressuring Kim Jong-Un and ultimately ending the threat.  https://clarionproject.org/mauro-fox-north-korea-mini-nukes-iran/

The liar-nObama Unmaskers:
Why Trump Doesn’t Just Expose Them?
by J.E. Dyer
{lidblog.com} ~ Andrew McCarthy asked a good question last Thursday: why hasn’t Trump publicized results of the investigation of the unmasking of his campaign/ transition teams by liar-nObama officials?... As McCarthy points out that Trump has the ultimate authority to do just that: The president is in charge of the executive branch, including its intelligence agencies. He has the authority to decide what intelligence information, and intelligence abuses, can be declassified and made public. Because Trump hasn’t done this, when surely he would be motivated to, McCarthy feels compelled to at least consider the possibility that the “unmaskings” probe may be a way for Republicans to dangle Democrats, just as the “Russia” theme is a way for Democrats to dangle Trump...  http://lidblog.com/the-obama-unmasking/

Eric Bolling Fights Back!
by Jeff Dunetz
{lidblog.com} ~ Fox News host Eric Bolling filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit Wednesday against Yashar Ali, a freelance writer who wrote a story in the Huffington Post that Bolling had sent lewd texts to female colleagues at the network... Bolling is the latest in a long line of Fox news hosts/anchors accused of sexually harassing women, but the first to fight back. The Huffington Post reporter Ali’s article was published  on August 4th and claimed that more than a dozen sources told him Bolling sent “an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News.” The day after the story was published Fox News suspended Bolling...  http://lidblog.com/eric-bolling-fights-back/

Judge Orders Tillerson To Stop Covering
For liar-Clinton – Give Up The Emails
{rickwells.us} ~ The deep state fortress that is the US State Department got a bit of a smack down with the decision by DC District Court Judge Amit Mehta... He instructed the agency to search in the one place it hasn’t for liar-Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators’ Benghazi emails. The logical location where there likely are incriminating documents. In their apparently deliberate attempt to be able to say they’ve searched Benghazi related emails and found nothing, State Department officials searched the 30,000 emails that liar-Clinton turned over to them in December of 2014, as well as personal email accounts of her fellow criminals, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan. They thoroughly searched the most unlikely places, where they knew for a fact that nothing of any substance would be found. The crooked liar-Clinton associates surely made certain there were no records of interest in any of those locations, nothing that could implicate them. Judge Mehta was not fooled by the diversion. Despite being an liar-nObama appointee, he ordered that the State Department search their own system, something that should have been the first place checked and would have been, if John hanoi-Kerry and company weren’t engaged in a deliberate, full scale cover up...  http://rickwells.us/judge-orders-tillerson-stop-covering-clinton-give-emails/#prettyPhoto

Who’s in Charge Here…Ain’t You?
by Allen West
{
townhall.com} ~ The movie “Apocalypse Now” came out in August 1979, it was Francis Ford Coppola’s film on the Vietnam War centered on the mission of Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) to assassinate a US Army Colonel gone rogue, played by Marlon Brando. I was beginning my freshman year of college at the University of Tennessee, and as a student enrolled in ROTC, I went to see the movie. Of course, it took me three viewings to really come to grips with the film and understand it. However, everyone remembers the memorable character, and lines, of Robert Duvall who played an eccentric Air Calvary Squadron Commander who said, “Charlie don’t surf” and “I love the smell of napalm in the morning, it smells like victory”. And yes, that scene with the air cavalry attack against the Viet Cong village coming in over the water while Richard Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries was unforgettable.

But there is a different scene, vignette, from that movie that is the subject of this missive. It was when Captain Willard and his Navy riverine boat escort him to the frontlines on the river, the last American outpost at night. It was there Captain Willard was supposed to link up with an Army officer for an intelligence update. Willard walks into the fighting position and asks a black Soldier manning an M60 machine gun the question, “Who’s in charge here?”, to which the Soldier responds, “ain’t you?”

Imagine if you were to walk into Washington, D.C. right now and ask the same rhetorical question, “Who’s in charge here”? It is the month of August and the US House of Representatives, the US Senate, and the president are all on vacation…or as they refer to it, recess. When I was a kid at Our Lady of Lourdes School in Atlanta, recess was a reward. If you had finished your work and were good in class, then you were able to take a recess after lunch. You could not be denied lunch, but doggone Sister Judith had a policy that teachers could deny recess. You did not get playtime unless you had met the requirements, a lesson that needs to be taught in Washington, D.C.

For those of you who do not know, here is the history of August recess. Washington is literally built on a swamp, no joke. The month of August is notorious for being the most unbearable with searing heat and high humidity, with little flowing breeze. Back in the day when there was not any air conditioning, Congress would recess for the month of August. However, recess also meant that these citizen legislators went back to their normal occupations, since it was never the intent of our Founding Fathers to have “career politicians”, but true representatives, servant leaders. Now, recess has come to mean something completely different, and we do have career politicians.

We are told how important it is for these legislators to be in their districts for the entire month of August. The need to meet with their constituents, I would love to see the town hall meeting schedule for every member of the House and Senate for this month. But, ask yourself, is this recess a reward, a time to decompress from a hard and productive legislative session, or just a taxpayer funded 30 day plus vacation? Only someone suffering from massive delusion would believe the former. That is what frustrated me in my term as a U.S. congressman coming from a career in the military. We did not leave until the job, the mission, was done, and we met the expected standard, if not surpassed it.

I learned in my time in uniform that leadership is the ability of one to take a diverse group of individuals and focus them towards the accomplishment of a singular goal. And so I ask again, “who’s in charge?”

There is no reform of our healthcare system, which we must all admit is collapsing. There is no tax reform plan that will ensure the incredible economic growth we have seen in the past six months will be sustained.  We do not have a budget. Show me an everyday citizen and business owner that has the luxury of abdicating the responsibility of having a budget.

Over the past seven to eight years we have had a Republican party that asked to be put in charge. And mind you, I do not ever want the progressive socialists of the Democratic Party to hold the leadership position in the House, Senate, or White House. The left in America fails to grasp a simple maxim, “a free people are not equal, and an equal people are not free”.

What concerns me is that the GOP has achieved that which they asked to attain, via the hard work and efforts of the American people who supported them. Yet, where are they, who’s in charge? Yes, I acknowledge the economic success, growth, we have seen, but we need those two major legislative policy agenda items that were promised by the GOP to their support base. Amazingly, the GOP has members who have betrayed their commitment, promise. Now we learn that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will seek a bipartisan measure to ensure the insurance companies receive a “bailout” in order to reduce the pain of a rate increase. This is nothing more than the implementation of the liar-nObamacare risk corridor, part of that we were told would be repealed.

This means that the GOP failed, and they went home, so the resolution is to just continue with the status quo, business as usual. We were told that the Senate would not recess in August unless they got their work done. Maybe we need to resurrect Sister Judith and her policy when I was in elementary school. There was no doubt in any of our minds who was in charge, it was Sister Judith.

Do I want to see a Chuck clown-Schumer leading the Senate, Nancy Pulosi as House Speaker again, or worse, Maxine Waters, of course not? What I want to see is someone accepting the mantle of leadership and being in charge, fulfilling the commitment made to the American people, and willing to work to that end. I freely admit, if I were still in Congress I would be embarrassed. I also admit that what I am witnessing inspires me to consider a return, the American people deserve better.

Who’s in charge…right now it ain’t the liberty loving American people.

ALERT ALERT

Breaking: Jury Sides With Sheriff Joe
Smacks Down Establishment GOP’s Lawsuit

A jury has sided in favor of conservative icon, former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, against the lawsuit filed by Austin Flake, the son of GOP establishment Senator Jeff Flake, and Austin’s ex-wife, Logan Brown.

Flake and Brown had filed a lawsuit against the Arizona sheriff for “malicious prosecution” after over a dozen dogs died on their watch at a Gilbert dog kennel.

The jury decided Flake and Brown had failed to provide sufficient evidence to back up their accusations of malicious prosecution by Arpaio, The Associated Press reported via Tucson.com.

Flake and Brown ran the kennel while Brown’s parents were out of town in 2014, the AP reported.

The two were still in college.

Initially, Flake and Brown were charged in the incident, but the charges were dropped at the prosecution’s request. Later, Flake’s in-laws pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after an expert determined that the facility air conditioner failed because it was not properly maintained.

Thus, the owners of the kennel were responsible for the death of the 21 dogs, and they answered for their crimes.

Nonetheless, Flake and Brown reportedly alleged that Arpaio had charged them to gain publicity and deal damage to Senator Flake — an establishment fixture within the GOP.

The two “contended the charges caused them emotional distress, contributed to the demise of their marriage and led the senator’s son to being suspended from college for an honor-code violation,” according to The Associated Press.

Despite the jury’s decision, the U.S. District Judge Neil V. Wake will not issue a final verdict until the defense explains why it didn’t turn over documents that may have benefited the plaintiffs, according to a statement from the plaintiffs’ attorney to The Associated Press.

“The struggle to hold government officials accountable has always required a steep, perilous climb,” the plaintiffs’ attorney said in a Friday statement according to KNPX.

“Although we disagree with the jury’s verdict, we are grateful we had the opportunity to force former Sheriff Arpaio and his subordinates at Maricopa County to account for their indisputably reckless conduct. Near the end of the trial, we discovered that the County failed to turn over documents that might have helped us prove our case,” he continued.

“The Court has ordered the County to explain its failure and indicated that it will not enter a final judgment in the case until a satisfactory explanation is provided. We will access our future options in this fight when the County complies with the Court’s Order.”

Charges that didn’t pan out are an annoyance to those affected — there’s no question of that.

But to claim that those charges — which were dropped — were the reason behind a failed marriage, and that Arpaio needs to pay is completely ridiculous.
