Fein-stein Trashes Trump for Standing Up for America - 
Should Have Rolled Over like liar-nObama
{ rickwells.us } ~ The left has successfully diverted attention away from President Trump’s summit with Kim Jong Un through an orchestrated stunt by Justin Trudeau... after the G7 meeting had concluded. Even when Trump is making history the long knives of the globalists, which never see the inside of a sheath, are out and slicing away at President Trump. His supposed crime is that of standing up for America after liar-nObama’s globalist choom buddy Trudeau demeaned both our nation and our leader. To the liberals we’re not a sovereign nation, we’re global citizens subordinate to the UN and President Trump should learn to kowtow to them in the proper liar-nObama manner, allowing them to pillage the United States. It’s the civilized thing to do, they tell us, and after all, the US is not exceptional and like Trump, we’re to blame for all of the world’s problems. These aren’t just any nations, after all, they’re our G7 “partners,” the ones who have been smiling and telling us “this might sting a little” as they raped us with their own tariffs and predatory trade practices as well as parasitic agreements for decades. We’re supposed to just bite our lips and let them do whatever they want, like liar-nObama did. He and Trudeau were best friends and their common view of the legitimacy of exploiting the American people was a big part of it...   https://rickwells.us/feinstein-trump-rolled-obama/

Supreme Court gives green light to Ohio's voting roll purge
by Bill Mears and Brooke Singman
{ foxnews.com } ~ The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Ohio is allowed to purge eligible voters from the state’s registration records if they have not cast ballots in a while... In a 5-4 ruling issued by Justice Samuel Alito, the high court ruled that Ohio’s law to trigger the removal of inactive voters from the state’s registry can be enforced. State officials argued that the process used by Ohio for more than 20 years is constitutional and legal, and meant to ensure election security. Civil liberties groups challenged the state’s program for removing thousands of people from voter rolls based on their failure to vote in recent elections, claiming it violated the National Voter Registration Act...   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/06/11/supreme-court-gives-gree...

Panic time at Camp Mueller 
by Wesley Pruden 
{ washingtontimes.com } ~ If this is June, it must be time to indict Paul Manafort again. The clock is ticking, and the tic-tocs are getting louder... Robert Mueller is clearly feeling the hot breath of public impatience on the back of his neck. He was the great black-and-white hope for bringing down Donald Trump, and a year later the president is still not in prison stripes. Mr. Mueller has indicted Paul Manafort twice, and threatens now to jail him for tampering with a witness. If he tampered with a witness while out on bail, and Mr. Mueller can prove it, jail is where he belongs. But bringing down a witness-tamperer is not what the special counsel/prosecutor was commissioned to do. Mr. Mueller was commissioned to bring in the head of Donald Trump. Not by any means necessary, as Mr. Mueller and his team of thousand dollar-an-hour Blackstones seem to think, but by legitimate means, with evidence that would stand up in a court. They might not have the evidence they need to nail the president’s scalp on the court house wall, so the Manafort scalp might have to do, hence the multiple indictments and now the threat of prosecution for witness-tampering...

EU President Donald Tusk Worries About “New
World Order” Being Dismantled – The Peasants are Revolting
y sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ European Union President Donald Tusk worries about the Bush-liar-Clinton/Bush/ liar-nObama legacy being dismantled... “What worries me most is the fact that the rules-based international order is being challenged, quite surprisingly, not by the usual suspects, but by its main architect and guarantor: the US.” Every parasite needs a host. As soon as the host refuses to remain co-dependent to its own demise, the abusers begin to panic.   https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/06/10/eu-president-donald...

'Fake News' Is Not a Fake Term 
by David Limbaugh
{ townhall.com } ~ The left and Trump-opposing right are predictably annoyed at President Trump's persistent description of the liberal media as "fake news." Like it or not, the term as he uses it has merit.

Trump's opponents hysterically claim he threatens the free press when he uses that term to describe them, just as they accuse him of other alleged abuses of constitutional power. In fact, unlike President liar-nObama, Trump has governed within his constitutional authority. If his rhetoric scares them, then maybe they should find a safe space.

Before you accuse me of your favorite discussion stopper, "whataboutism" -- supposed efforts to excuse Trump's alleged misbehavior by citing equal or worse behavior fromliar-nObama, liar-Hillary Clinton or other Democrats -- let me repeat: I am arguing that Trump has not abused his executive powers, so I'm not seeking to excuse him at all.

As I've said before in response to Trump critics, not every criticism of liar-Clinton and liar-nObama is designed to take the heat off Trump. It is important to hold Democrats accountable, even for their past actions, and to showcase their hypocrisy.

I have often detailed President liar-nObama's misdeeds and the liberal media's deliberate refusal to report on these and therefore won't provide another comprehensive list here. But it is important for us all to understand that Democrats, as a rule, don't much care about abuses of constitutional power -- by the executive branch or by the legislative and judicial branches, not to mention the unaccountable administrative state -- when they advance their leftist agenda.

Before you scoff at this, there's a logical reason for this beyond their hyper-partisanship. They don't care as much as we do about the Constitution -- at least not as originally written. It's undeniable from their history of supporting liberal judicial activism alone, wherein liberal judges bend, amend and upend constitutional provisions and principles when it suits their policy preferences. Liberals speciously accuse conservatives of activism when our constitutionalist judges merely reverse their lawless rulings, just as they accuse President Trump of abusing his executive authority when he dips his executive pen into White House ink to lawfully repeal liar-nObama's unlawful orders.

As just one example, President liar-nObama repeatedly and publicly lamented his lack of executive authority to change immigration laws when he was trying to pressure Congress to pass the DREAM Act. But when his efforts failed, he dipped his executive pen into his executive ink and grossly abused his authority to advance his cause. And he did these types of things routinely -- thwarting the will of the people by usurping the authority of Congress.

The liberal media, who hold themselves out as objective journalists, rarely, if ever, criticized liar-nObama for such lawlessness. They are advocacy commentators disguised as journalists, and reporting on these abuses didn't serve their agenda. Seems pretty fake to many of us. Yes, many commentators on the right are biased, as well, but they usually admit their biases rather than masquerade as objective observers.

Those who insist Trump is abusing his executive authority are the same ones who are hot and bothered about his "fake news" moniker for the liberal press, arguing that it somehow threatens the First Amendment. This is nonsense.

Trump doesn't jeopardize anyone's free speech rights by calling them fake. At the risk -- again -- of whataboutism charges, Presidents liar-nObama and liar-Bill Clinton were often in public fights with Fox News and conservative talk radio. Did they threaten free speech in such instances? Moreover, are critics suggesting that Trump has a constitutional or moral duty to remain silent in the face of endless criticism from the media -- the media that are so preoccupied with discrediting him and undermining his agenda that they spend almost all their time on scandal-mongering and almost none on reporting substantive news?

The critics' incessant and unsubstantiated claim that Trump is a threat to the Constitution is itself irresponsible. Most of the examples they cite have to do with his tough rhetoric rather than his actions. They just can't stand him and have an irrational fear that he's going to end the world, maybe even the universe.

So please, the next time someone casually asserts that Trump is a danger to the Constitution, have the person specify and connect the dots between Trump's action or statement and an actual threat to our democracy.

And when you are considering Trump's claim that he's being attacked by fake news, keep in mind that the leftist media 1) aren't honest about their biases and mask their editorial opinions as news; 2) grossly underreport substantive newsworthy events; 3) make things up about Trump -- such as that first lady Melania Trump may have been in hiding to conceal evidence of physical abuse administered by this most evil of chief executives; and 4) deliberately conceal or deny indisputable evidence of Democratic abuses and corruption, the latest being the liar-nObama administration's clandestine assistance to Iran to facilitate its circumvention of financial sanctions -- and its overt lies to the American people about it.

When it comes to political reporting, the liberal media are often fake news, so don't just assume that Trump's repeated claim to that effect is nothing but counter punching noise. It's about time someone called them on it. It's wholly proper for the press to hold public officials accountable when necessary, but there's nothing whatsoever wrong about a president's holding the media accountable, as well. After all, collectively, their bully pulpit is arguably bigger than his.

ALERT ALERT

 Will  Tea Party Hand The Liberals Their Ass On Election Day? 

It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign.

Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later.

It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong.

“Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living déjà vu,” Ferguson said. “I just don’t know which yet.”

Ferguson is one of many Democrats who felt the string of unexpected defeat in 2016 and are now closely — and nervously — watching the current election near its end, wondering if history will repeat itself. This year, instead of trying to win the presidency, Democrats have placed an onus on trying to gain 23 House seats and win a majority.

The anxiety isn’t universal, with many party leaders professing confidently and repeatedly that this year really is different.

But even some of them acknowledge the similarities between the current and previous election: Trump is unpopular and beset by scandal, Democrats hold leads in the polls, and some Republicans are openly pessimistic.

FiveThirtyEight gives Democrats a 76.9 percent chance of winning the House one month before Election Day. Their odds for Clinton’s victory two years ago? 71.4 percent.

The abundance of optimism brings back queasy memories for Jesse Lehrich, who worked on the Clinton campaign and remembers watching the returns come in from the Javits Center in New York.

“I was getting texts after the result was clear – including even from some political reporters and operatives – texting me, you know, ‘Are you guys starting to get nervous?’ or ‘What’s her most likely path?’” he said. “I was like, ‘What do you mean, starting to get nervous? What path? They just called Wisconsin. We lost.’”

“People were so slow to process that reality because they just hadn’t considered the possibility that Donald Trump was going to be the next president,” he continued.

Lehrich said he sees similarities between 2016 and 2018. But he said he thought Democrats were cognizant of the parallels and determined not to let up a month before the election, as many voters might have two years ago.

Other Democratic leaders aren’t so sure. Asked if he thought his party was overconfident, Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton responded flatly, “Yes.”

Democrats could win a lot of House seats, he said, or could still fall short of capturing a majority.

“The point is that we’ve got to realize that this not just some unstoppable blue wave but rather a lot of tough races that will be hard-fought victories,” Moulton said.

If Democrats are universally nervous about anything after 2016, it’s polling. The polls weren’t actually as favorable to Clinton and the Democrats as some remember, something 538’s Nate Silver and some other journalists pointed out at the time.

But Clinton’s decision not to campaign in a state she’d lose, Wisconsin, and the failure of pollsters everywhere to miss a wave of Trump supporters in red areas are mistakes Democrats are still grappling with today.

“Clearly last cycle, polling was off,” Ben Ray Lujan, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told reporters last month. “There were a lot of predictions that were made last cycle that didn’t come to fruition.”

Lujan emphasized in particular how pollsters missed the rural vote, calling it a “devastating mistake.” He said the DCCC has taken deliberate steps since 2016 to get it right this time around, but underscored a congressional majority still required a tooth-and-nail fight.

“So I’m confident with the team that’s been assembled, but I’m definitely cognizant of the fact we need to understand these models and understand the data for what it is,” he said.

One Democratic pollster said the data he’s seen makes plain that the party is favored to win a majority — but that it’s still not a sure thing. He said even now it’s unclear if the political environment will create an electoral tsunami, or merely a good year where Democrats might still fall short of a House majority.

“We’ve all learned a lesson from 2016 that there are multiple possibilities and outcomes,” said the pollster, granted anonymity to discuss polling data one month before the election. “And if you haven’t learned that lesson, shame on you. That 20 percent outcome can happen. That 30 percent outcome can happen.”

This year, Democrats have history on their side: The incumbent president’s party historically struggles during midterm elections. That wasn’t the case in 2016, when Democrats were trying to win the presidency for three consecutive terms for the first time in their history since Franklin Delano Roosevelt (The GOP accomplished the feat only once in the same period, with Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.)

Some Democratic leaders say the reality of Trump’s presidency — unlike its hypothetical state in 2016 — changes the dynamic entirely.

“Democratic energy is at nuclear levels,” said Steve Israel, a former DCCC chairman. “Democrats would crawl over broken glass to vote in this election.”

Israel said he still has concerns about November (political operatives always have concerns about the upcoming election). But he waves away the notion that the party might fall short of a House majority.

“Most Democrats and a heck of a lot of Republicans I speak to believe that Democrats will have the majority,” he said. “The real question is, by how much?”

Ferguson is, of course, of two minds: He thinks the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the day-to-day reality of Trump’s presidency fundamentally changes how voters will see this election.

But he’s also gun-shy about what could change in the next month, after the multitude of surprises that occurred during the last month of the 2016 race, whether the “Access Hollywood” recording or then-FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was re-opened.

Many Republicans argue the 2018 election has already seen its October surprise, with the confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh finally motivating conservative voters to vote.

“I don’t know what the October surprises will be,” Ferguson said. “But we make a mistake if we assume that what we’re seeing today is what we’ll see for the entire month. We lived through it two years ago.”
