between Trump campaign and Russia
by Brooke Singman & Chad Pergram & Catherine Herridge
{ foxnews.com } ~ The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said Monday it found “no evidence of collusion... coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” as its Russia investigation starts to come to a close. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, who has led the committee’s bipartisan investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election, announced Monday that the panel had completed a more than 150-page draft report, with its initial findings and recommendations. “We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” the committee said in a statement Monday...  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/12/house-intel-finds-no-evi...

Gordon Chang: 85% Chance North Korea 
Will Promise to Give Up Nukes 
by DEBRA HEINE 
Asia expert Gordon Chang thinks there's a very good chance President Trump's upcoming meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un... will result in a Kim promise to give up his nuclear ambitions. Chang also predicts that if the United States keeps the pressure on against the Communist regime and its allies, Kim will be likely to fulfill such a promise. During an appearance on Fox News Sunday morning, Chang -- an author, blogger, television pundit, and Daily Beast columnist -- told host Leland Vittert that North Korea is at its weakest point since the end of the Korean War. "The money flows are not there. We've see, for instance, that Office Number 39 -- which is the Kim family slush fund -- is running out of cash according to Chinese sources, and South Koreans say that the regime in Pyongyang is not going to have any more foreign currency reserves by October at the current rate of depletion. That's a real indication that the sanctions are working. And that's the reason why I think that Kim Jong-Un actually has come to the table right now -- because he wants sanctions relief."...   https://pjmedia.com/trending/gordon-chang-85-chance-north-korea-cri...

Are Racist, Sexist Rednecks – “That’s 
Why She Lost” 
{ rickwells.us } ~ The whole concept of gratitude that she isn’t already in a tiny room behind locked gates... and the idea of keeping a low profile and her mouth shut are completely foreign to the would-be heir to the liar-nObama throne, liar-Hillary Clinton. She’s daring anyone to file criminal charges against her. Once again her actions are those of someone who believes she is above the law.  liar-Clinton, who surprisingly still has her passport, traveled to Mumbai to sit on the stage at the India Today Conclave. It’s customary for liar-Clinton, anytime she has an audience in front of her, to rewrite the events of the election and make excuses for why the American people didn’t elect a treasonous career criminal intent on our destruction as their leader. This time she blames it on the stupid Americans, the unsophisticated rednecks that President Trump appealed to...Lock her up.  https://rickwells.us/clinton-americans-racist-sexist/

Dallas County DA investigating more than 
1,200 mail-in ballot applications 
for potential voter fraud
by Gromer Jeffers Jr.

{ dallasnews.com } ~ Dallas County prosecutors are investigating whether someone committed fraud in the handling... 
of more than 1,200 mail-in ballot applications for the 2018 elections. The applications, which came from West Dallas, Grand Prairie and parts of Oak Cliff, generated 459 ballots that were considered by a county board that reviews provisional and questionable ballots. The ballots came from the same areas where voter fraud was alleged in municipal elections last year. "Some of the applications were suspicious because they were filled out in September and October of 2017, but not submitted for a mail-in ballot until January and February of 2018," said Andy Chatham, an assistant Dallas County district attorney...  https://www.dallasnews.com/news/2018-elections/2018/03/12/dallas-co...

Time to Get Over the Russophobia 

by Pat Buchanan 
{ townhall.com } ~ Unless there is a late surge for Communist Party candidate Pavel Grudinin, who is running second with 7 percent, Vladimir Putin will be re-elected president of Russia for another six years on March 18.

Then we must decide whether to continue on course into a second Cold War, or engage Russia, as every president sought to do in Cold War I.

For our present conflict, Vladimir Putin is not alone at fault. His actions have often been reactions to America's unilateral moves.

After the Soviet Union collapsed, we brought all of the Warsaw Pact members and three former republics of the USSR into our military alliance, NATO, to corral Russia. How friendly was that?

Putin responded with his military buildup in the Baltic.

George W. Bush abrogated the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty that Richard Nixon had negotiated, Putin responded with a buildup of the offensive missiles he put on display last week.

The U.S. helped to instigate the Maidan Square coup that dumped over the elected pro-Russian government in Ukraine.

To prevent the loss of his Sebastopol naval base on the Black Sea, Putin countered by annexing the Crimean Peninsula.

After peaceful protests in Syria were put down by Bashar Assad, we sent arms to Syrian rebels to overthrow the Damascus regime.

Seeing his last naval base in the Med, Tartus, imperiled, Putin came to Assad's aid and helped him win the civil war.

The Boris Yeltsin years are over.

Russia is acting again as a great power. And she sees us as a nation that slapped away her hand, extended in friendship in the 1990s, and then humiliated her by planting NATO on her front porch.

Yet, what is also clear is that Putin hoped and believed that, with the election of Trump, Russia might be able to restore respectful if not friendly relations with the United States.

Clearly, Putin wanted that, as did Trump.

Yet, with the Beltway hysteria over hacking of the DNC and John Podesta emails, and the Russophobia raging in this capital, we appear to be paralyzed when it comes to engaging with Russia.

The U.S. political system, said Putin this week, "has been eating itself up." Is his depiction that wide of the mark?

What is the matter with us?

Three years after Nikita Khrushchev sent tanks into Budapest to drown the Hungarian revolution in blood, Eisenhower was hosting him on a 10-day visit to the USA.

Two years after the Berlin Wall went up, and eight months after Khrushchev installed missiles in Cuba, Kennedy reached out to the Soviet dictator in his widely praised American University speech.

Lyndon Johnson met with Russian President Alexei Kosygin in Glassboro, New Jersey, just weeks after we almost clashed over Moscow's threat to intervene in the Arab-Israeli War of 1967.

Six months after Leonid Brezhnev sent tank armies to crush the Prague Spring in August 1968, an inaugurated Nixon was seeking detente.

In those years, no matter who was in the White House or Kremlin, the U.S. establishment favored engagement with Moscow. It was the right that was skeptical or hostile.

Again, what is the matter with this generation?

True, Vladimir Putin is an autocrat seeking a fourth term, like FDR.

But what Russian leader, save Yeltsin, has not been an autocrat? And Russians today enjoy freedoms of speech, assembly, religion, travel, politics, and the press that the generations before 1989 never knew.

China, not Russia, has the more repressive single-party Communist state.

Indeed, which of these U.S. allies shows greater tolerance than Putin's Russia? The Philippines of Rodrigo Duterte, the Egypt of Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the Turkey of President Erdogan, or the Saudi Arabia of Prince Mohammad bin Salman?

Russia is nowhere near the strategic or global threat the Soviet Union presented. As Putin conceded this week, with the breakup of the USSR, his nation "lost 23.8 percent of its national territory, 48.5 percent of its population, 41 percent of its gross domestic product and 44.6 percent of its military capacity."

How would Civil War Unionists have reacted if the South had won independence and then, to secure the Confederacy against a new invasion, Dixie entered into an alliance with Great Britain, gave the Royal Navy bases in New Orleans and Charleston, and allowed battalions of British troops to deploy in Virginia?

Japan negotiates with Putin's Russia over the southern Kuril Islands lost at the end of World War II. Bibi Netanyahu has met many times with Putin, though he is an ally of Assad, whom Bibi would like to see ousted, and has a naval and air base not far from Israel's border.

We Americans have far more fish to fry with Russia than Bibi.

Strategic arms control. De-escalation in the Baltic, Ukraine and the Black Sea. Ending the war in Syria. North Korea. Space. Afghanistan. The Arctic. The war on terror.

Yet all we seem to hear from our elite is endless whining that Putin has not been sanctioned enough for desecrating "our democracy."

Get over it.

ALERT ALERT

 Dem Governor Threatens Trump: “Something’s Got To Happen To This Guy… He’s Sabotaging The World Order”

“If we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”

Another Democrat has called for ‘something to happen’ to President Trump in order to save the democratic process in America.

California Gov. Jerry Brown made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing the death toll during hurricanes last year in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown declared.

“I mean he’s not telling the truth. He keeps changing his mind. He’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.” the Governor claimed.

“So it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country,” he continued.

“The Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.” Brown urged.

The tacit threat comes in the wake of Maxine Waters encouraging anti-Trumpers to “knock off” the President.
