Democrats Move the Goalposts Again
by Steve Feinstein } ~ The ridiculously long, drawn out, overdone "Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election" investigation proves an ages-old political maxim..
. the benchmark of proof that a political accusation has to satisfy in order to be considered true will constantly change as the needs of the accuser shift in response to new information. In other words, if the original charge proves to be baseless, the complainants will invariably lower the threshold of guilt so that even a lesser transgression will be sufficient to condemn the accused. President Trump is the latest example of that. Let's be candid here — everything about President Trump is anathema to the Democrats. 
*He beat scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, depriving the Democrats of boasting how they elected the country's first female president.
*He is direct, unequivocal, and absolute in his policy pronouncements, eschewing the usual "nod-nod, wink-wink" of Washington speak. What makes it even worse is that President Trump's policy pronouncements are conservative, and his direct, clear-meaning speech rips the cover off years of oh, so carefully developed liberal deceptions.
*President Trump calls out the Democrat-sympathetic liberal media for who they are, enraging his enemies for not rolling over and meekly accepting mistreatment at the hands of his liberal opponents the way his milquetoast Republican predecessors did.
*His policies — the withdrawal from the Paris Accords, his dismissal of the Iranian nuclear agreements, his tough stance regarding NATO paying its fair share, his position on border security and illegal immigration, his desire for greater domestic American energy production, the re-negotiation of international trade agreements to be more advantageous to this country, and many others — are so blatantly pro-American and popular with the average voter that the supposedly sophisticated liberal Democratic intelligentsia are infuriated over the way his approach resonates in such a positive, commonsense manner with so many people. 
Therefore, with Democrats unable to accept Trump's 2016 victory no surprise, really, in light of how they and the liberal media refused to accept George W. Bush's election victory over scumbag-Gore in 2000 or Bush's defeat of hanoi-John Kerry in 2004, blaming that on Ohio voting irregularities and unscrupulous, deceptive "Swiftboating" attacks, the Democratic Party desperately searched for a reason to explain scumbag/liar-Hillary's defeat, a reason they could take to the general public and convince them that Trump's election win was illegitimate. At the best, the Democrats hoped to somehow delegitimize his victory, and have it voided by some vague, never explained, nonexistent legal mechanism; at the very least, they hoped to sully him so badly that they'd force a disgraced resignation or completely torpedo any possibility of his re-election in 2020. Hence, the dirty cop-Mueller investigation was born. It's not necessary to recount here the questionable basis on which the investigation was founded, the highly partisan make-up of the roster of "impartial" investigators, or the blatantly improper legal procedures that were swept under the rug by both the dirty cop-Mueller panel and the liberal media such as the erroneously granted, baseless FISA warrants. These are all well known and have been documented before in great detail...
dirty cop-Mueller report shows probe did not 
find collusion evidence, reveals Trump 
efforts to sideline key players
by Brooke Singman  
{} ~ After two years of suspense, Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s report was released into Washington’s partisan scrum Thursday showing... investigators did not find evidence of collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia – as Attorney General Bill Barr declared last month – but revealing an array of controversial actions by the president that were examined as part of the investigation’s obstruction inquiry. This included President Trump allegedly telling his White House counsel in June 2017 to inform the acting attorney general that dirty cop-Mueller had conflicts of interest and "must be removed." The report said Trump also fumed over the original appointment -- lamenting it would mean the "end of my presidency" -- first telling then-DOJ leader Jeff Sessions he should resign, and later trying to get Session to take back control of the probe. dirty cop-Mueller ultimately did not reach a conclusion on whether the president's conduct amounted to obstruction, stating: "While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." But even though Barr's DOJ determined they did not have evidence to pursue such a case, the details in the report only fueled Democrats' mounting calls to not only see the unredacted report but have dirty cop-Mueller testify. "This is exactly why we need to hear directly from Special Counsel dirty cop-Mueller and receive the full, unredacted report with the underlying evidence," House Judiciary Committee Chairman scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler tweeted, highlighting that section. Trump and his legal team, though, declared victory upon the release of the report. "No collusion, no obstruction," Trump said. The swift reactions indicated the release of the report is only likely to fuel, not quiet, the long-raging debate in Washington over the Russia probe and serve as fodder going into the 2020 election year...
Top Democrat calling for full dirty cop- Mueller 
report had different view when scumbag/liar-
Bill Clinton was investigated
by Jerry Dunleavy } ~ Rep. scumbag liar-Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is the leading Democrat demanding the release of the dirty cop-Mueller Report “in its entirety” without redactions... 
His committee is planning to subpoena the Justice Department for the full report. But back in 1998, as a member of the same committee, he vociferously opposed the release of the full Starr Report, saying that “as a matter of decency and protecting people’s privacy rights, people who may be totally innocent third parties, what must not be released at all.” Then, the president was scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton. Now, it is a Republican, Donald Trump. Ken Starr, the independent counsel investigating then-President scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton, delivered his report to Congress on Sept. 9, 1998. That night, scumbag liar-Nadler went on Charlie Rose's show to push back against the Republican demand that the voluminous report should be made public. “It’s grand jury material. It represents statements which may or may not be true by various witnesses," scumbag liar-Nadler said. "Salacious material. All kinds of material that it would be unfair to release,” What scumbag liar-Nadler, 71, said in 1998 echoes what Attorney General William Barr told Congress last week. Barr, 68, wrote that he might redact grand jury testimony, information related to ongoing investigations, sensitive or classified information, and “information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties” from the report that he provides to Congress and the public...  
DOJ Delivers dirty cop-Mueller 
Report to Congress
by Mairead Mcardle } ~ The Justice Department on Thursday morning delivered a redacted version of Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s final report to Congress... Attorney General William Barr presented the House and Senate Judiciary Committees with copies of the redacted report, which was also published on the Justice Department website. Barr held a press conference earlier in the morning in which he said President Trump and Trump’s lawyers offered no input on any of the redactions. “No material has been redacted based on executive privilege,” Barr said. “The president’s personal lawyers were not permitted to make, and did not request, any redactions.” dirty cop-Mueller’s team was not able to reach a conclusion that “no criminal conduct occurred,” according to the report.“The evidence we obtained about the President’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred,” the report says. “Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” The report added that Congress still has the authority to find Trump obstructed justice, i.e. to “prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.” The special counsel’s team also said it concluded that it could have subpoenaed Trump to testify, but decided against it in the interest of avoiding the “substantial delay that such an investigative step would likely produce at a late stage in our investigation.” “We had sufficient evidence to understand relevant events and to make certain assessments without the President’s testimony,” the report says. Many Democrats, including House Intelligence Committee chairman scumbag-Adam Schiff, have requested Mueller testify on Capitol Hill about the report... Thats not going to happen.
Socialist eras and errors: Accounting for the popularity of commie-Bernie and commie-AOC
by Clifford D. May } ~ Socialism is cool again, thanks not least to septuagenarian Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders and millennial Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (aka AOC). Socialism has been cool before, of course, notably during the Great Depression...
 and what became known as the Sixties, the era of Vietnam, the civil rights movement, hippies, and the old New Left. As a reporter for my high school newspaper in the later period I interviewed Earl Browder, who had been general secretary of the Communist Party USA during the 1930s. He coined the slogan: “Communism is 20th century Americanism.” I read a fair amount about socialism back then and, on my application to a reasonably prestigious college, I named Norman Thomas, six-time presidential candidate of the Socialist Party of America, as someone I admired. Had I chosen William F. Buckley instead I suspect I’d have wound up at a lesser institution. The summer preceding my freshman year – exactly 50 years ago, I’m afraid – I went to the Soviet Union on a study program. Like Mr. commie-Sanders, I was impressed by Moscow’s subways he called them“absolutely beautiful, including many works of art, chandeliers that were beautiful” and by the “palaces of culture” and the theaters where, he enthused, “the highest price of a ticket that you could get was the equivalent of $1.50!” I decided to major in Russian and, a couple of years later, won a place on the only undergraduate exchange program between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. A little learning can be dangerous: I soon comprehended what Mr. commie-Sanders never has: Communism is toxic to freedom and prosperity. Yes, theater tickets were cheap but, like other luxuries and even many necessities, such goods were obtainable only po blatu – through political power, wielded exclusively by the nomenkatura, the communist elite...

Flooding the Sanctuary Zones

Cal Thomas


In the category of Mad magazine’s “scenes we’d like to see,” comes President Trump’s threat to transport migrants to cities and states that have declared themselves sanctuaries. Apparently he thinks such a move would force Democrats in Congress who represent these places to vote to fund the wall along our southern border.

Speaker Nancy Pulosi calls the president’s threat “unworthy of the presidency.” In fact, it is Congress that has been unworthy for a long time. Here is a body that passes laws everyone else must obey, but in too many cases is exempt from adhering to some of them.

In 1995, the House and Senate passed the Congressional Accountability Act, which finally applied many civil rights, labor and workplace safety statutes to the legislative branch, yet two very important laws, the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act, do not apply to Congress. There are others.

Wealthy members of Congress might take offense should immigrants move into their neighborhoods. They don’t seem to care about the harm caused to ranchers and other property owners in states along the southern border.

Legal experts say it would be illegal under current law to move people to sanctuary cities and states. This crosses the border of ridiculousness. Some governors and mayors are protecting those who enter the country illegally from the law. If they were protecting other lawbreakers — drug dealers, or murderers, for example (which the president argues they are) — the law would consider them accessories after the fact and they would face prosecution and prison time. But because politicians refuse to update laws that are full of loopholes the current problem is their doing.

For those unfamiliar with the concept of sanctuary cities, here is a short lesson. Sanctuary cities were established in Old Testament law (Numbers 35:11) to protect someone who had killed another person by accident and without malice aforethought from “the avenger of blood,” who might be a close relative of the dead person. Under the priestly code, the accused was removed from the city and put on trial. If he was found innocent of murder, he was returned under guard to the sanctuary city in which he had claimed asylum. He enjoyed protection until the Jewish high priest died, at which point he was free to leave the city without fear of harm.

The Mishnah, the oral law given alongside the written Torah, states that the high priest’s mother (not the government) would traditionally supply clothing and food to those claiming asylum in the cities of refuge, so that relatives of the dead person would not wish for the death of her son because he harbored the accused. The Talmud argues that the natural death of the high priest was a type of atonement because he was considered pious. Maimonides argued that the death of the high priest was an event so upsetting to the Israelites that they dropped all thoughts of vengeance.

Today’s sanctuary cities and states have nothing to do with their original intent or outcome. Those living in this country without legal permission have broken the law, but are simultaneously protected by the law. Does this make sense? Name other laws American citizens could break and not be held accountable. Try breaking the tax laws this week and see where that gets you.

One of the president’s problems has been his lack of focus. He throws proposals against a congressional wall to see if any will stick. He should stick with one and bring public opinion with him. The ultimate solution lies with a do-nothing Congress and only it can solve the problem. For political reasons, members of both parties refuse to do so. Those who support sanctuary cities ought to experience the consequences of that support in their own front and backyards.  ~The Patriot Post

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
