Heavenly Father, Bless Our President

Psalm 71 New King James Version (NKJV)

God the Rock of Salvation

71 In You, O Lord, I put my trust;
Let me never be put to shame.
Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape;
Incline Your ear to me, and save me.
Be my [a]strong refuge,
To which I may resort continually;
You have given the commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.

Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked,
Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
For You are my hope, O Lord God;
You are my trust from my youth.
By You I have been [b]upheld from birth;
You are He who took me out of my mother’s womb.
My praise shall be continually of You.

I have become as a wonder to many,
But You are my strong refuge.
Let my mouth be filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all the day.

Do not cast me off in the time of old age;
Do not forsake me when my strength fails.
10 For my enemies speak against me;
And those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together,
11 Saying, “God has forsaken him;
Pursue and take him, for there is none to deliver him.

12 O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, make haste to help me!
13 Let them be [c]confounded and consumed
Who are adversaries of my life;
Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor
Who seek my hurt.

14 But I will hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more.
15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And Your salvation all the day,
For I do not know their limits.
16 I will go in the strength of the Lord God;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.

17 O God, You have taught me from my youth;
And to this day I declare Your wondrous works.
18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded,
O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come.

19 Also Your righteousness, O God, is [d]very high,
You who have done great things;
O God, who is like You?
20 You, who have shown me great and severe troubles,
Shall revive me again,
And bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 You shall increase my greatness,
And comfort me on every side.

22 Also with the lute I will praise You—
And Your faithfulness, O my God!
To You I will sing with the harp,
O Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You,
And my soul, which You have redeemed.
24 My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long;
For they are confounded,
For they are brought to shame
Who seek my hurt.
Thank You, Father
We pray it and receive it now in Jesus' Mighty Name, Amen and Amen

When I Grow Up, I Want to Be a Night Janitor For the Federal Gumment

Hey, It's an Important Job;

They get to sell uranium to Putin at the State Department and file FISA wiretap applications at the FBI!

(via the Donald)

Dear Diary and the New York Times,

I just remembered something for a change; President Trump obstructed justice!

I was talking to my beach friends and it all came back to me. 
It was at a party. I remember hiding in the drapes. Lewandowski held down 
one of my arms and Jim Acosta held down the other one, 
while Trump obstructed me over and over again. 

It made my skin crawl. 
More than it does usually, I mean.

I'll never forget the laughter. It's seared--seared-- into my hippokam...hypo...hippa...memory.

Hold me. Hold me now.

--Professor Director Jim Comey-Ford

UPDATE: Highly Confidential, Secret and Personal--Release to All Media Outlets At Once!

"All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop... I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be, but they have to win. They have to win."
--Jim Comey to Democrats, 2018

"All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop... I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be, but they have to win. They have to win."
--Jim Comey to Democrats Strzok, Page and McCabe, 2015

Muh RUSSIA spent $4,700 on Facebook. The FBI spent $160,000 on Steele's Fiction.

That means Comey meddled in the election 33 times more than Putin did.

Trump and His Enemies: "They're quite mad, you know."

"The professional republicans and the professional democrats, ie. “the uniparty”, have a common enemy in President Trump.  The vulgarian leader of the deplorable coalition never asked for permission; never paid the indulgency fees; never attended the necessary cloistered club meetings paying homage; and never offered the indulgent team of political elites terms for his takeover. Thus Donald Trump, just like the Tea Party, would never be accepted.

Why is this important now?

Current events highlight the resurgence of a never disassembled GOP Bush clan influence. For the past two years it’s been a never-ending game of whac-a-mole as each of the establishment minded embeds surfaces at different times. Within the dynamic, the one commonality within the internecine conflict inside the Trump administration is the establishment GOP -vs- Trump MAGA. ,,,

When you think about the actual structure of the Republican state party machines; it’s enough to make you wonder if the mid-term outcome and lack of structural fight was not part of this dynamic.  After all, “their” party was taken over by a new base and a new leader.

The same UniParty dynamic is visible in the way the FBI/DOJ and aggregate intelligence community were weaponized against Donald Trump – with Democrats and Republicans participating in the unlawful processes.   Now, in the downstream consequence phase, we see a UniParty defense approach to block Trump from revealing what happened.

I’m not sure people fully completely understand this dynamic within “spygate”.  It was not a targeting operation by democrats; republicans were just as complicit. The ongoing goal to eliminate candidate and president Trump is *not* partisan.

Which brings me to the current state of the advisers around the executive.  Remember, there are trillions at stake here – and the downstream benefactors are both Republicans and Democrats who make up the UniParty.

Within the UniParty dynamic, in order to retain full financial benefit, the political class need to align with Wall Street priorities.  That alignment means the UniParty needs to eliminate Main Street priorities that are adverse to their interests.

Border controls and immigration enforcement are adverse interests to the UniParty.  Additional cross party alignment to benefit Wall Street surrounds: •budgets and massive government spending; •government controlled healthcare retention; •government controlled education (common core); •and most importantly the removal of any national economic and trade policy that would threaten the structure of the multinationals.

There are no MAGA lobbying groups in Washington DC advocating for policies that benefit economic nationalism.  On this objective President Donald Trump stands alone.

We don’t need a third party in Washington DC, we actually need a second one." …….

Z-Man: The Lincoln Option: "Trump needs to accept that things have a reached the breaking point. It is no longer possible for him to strike a compromise with the establishment. They must be brought to heel and reform must be imposed upon them. They know this, which is why they are endlessly bluffing on what they are doing. Trump needs to call their bluff and fire Mueller, end his investigation and begin the process of investigating the rampant corruption in the intelligence services. More important, this has to be done with flourish.
Imagine news breaks one Friday that the Secret Service has raided the offices and homes of the Mueller team. Their computers, phones and materials were seized and their access to those materials revoked. All of them fired on the spot. Imagine the media hysteria over that move. Now imagine Trump addressing the nation that night, telling the country he has fired Team Mueller and is instructing his new AG to appoint a new special counsel to get to the bottom of the Mueller cover up of the FBI corruption.
That would turn Washington on its ear. When it is further learned that all of the material in the Mueller probe is under 24-hour armed guard and off-limits to everyone until the second investigation is commenced, the game is on. That means the new prosecutor can and will prosecute leaking information in those files. Bob Mueller goes from being the grand inquisitor to a person of interest. His flunkies suddenly become a liability to him and the rest of the conspirators. The rules of the game are suddenly very different.
Would the House Democrats commence impeachment proceedings? Probably. Even if they went forward, would the GOP senate convict? Maybe. There are plenty duplicitous cowards in the Republican Party. A craven loser like Mitt Romney comes to mind. Regardless of how it goes, Trump suddenly becomes an inflection point in the nation’s history. If they remove him from office, exactly no one will believe American democracy is anything but a sham to protect a corrupt ruling elite. The system will be discredited.
That’s where Trump is right now. In a very different context, he is in the same place Lincoln was at when he assumed office. Lincoln could only fail by maintaining the old order, so he had to end the republic. Trump can only fail if he tries to restore the old civic order he fondly remembers from the 1980’s. His choice is to fail or overthrow the current order. The former is a slow death of his administration. They latter does not guarantee success, but it means the end of the old order, for which he will be remembered." …….
I think that's right. And given the demonic nature of the Democrat opposition, they won't be able to stop themselves from going full-rabid sewer-rat.

President Trump came to rebuild America. But to do so, he's going to have to crush those who are invested in Keeping America Servile. And he'll need a good Attorney General at his side.

Will William Barr serve his nation and take on the Swamp...or will he serve the Swamp and take on the nation? Barr was strong on immigration enforcement once--that's a good sign. But so was the compromised Sessions. This is also a good sign, however:

Weasel Zippers: "Dems are prepared to delay and obstruct any and all nominees.
Via Fox News:"Barr in particular drew concerned statements from Democrats — particularly in the shadow of FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Barr’s pick “deeply concerning.”
“Barr has spent the past two years auditioning for this job by stoking partisan attacks on our nation’s law enforcement community, and encouraging the President to use the Justice Department as a political weapon to pursue his rivals and undermine investigations into Trump and his family’s scandals,” she said, before saying Barr’s selection was “the latest in the President’s pattern of installing partisan hacks in the highest reaches of our government who will happily do his bidding.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., expressed concern about Barr’s “expansive views of executive power and partisan statements about pardons, the Mueller investigation and Hillary Clinton.”
She said, “Barr must commit to supporting Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation and allowing him to follow the facts. He must also commit to resisting political pressure placed on the Justice Department. I look forward to receiving his answers to questions in these and other areas during the confirmation process."
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., appeared to predict a lengthy confirmation hearing, issuing a laundry list of issues Democrats want to discuss with Barr." …….

Thomas Lifson: "An aggressive AG would be a welcome contrast to Jeff Sessions, particularly since there is so much internal resistance to Trump’s agenda within the DoJ.  When absurd redactions are made from documents merely to protect the DoJ from embarrassment, an aggressive reaction from the top is required to overcome resistance.

AT author … Mark Wauck pointed out to me in an email the ultimate reason to think that Barr is on Trump’s side in reforming the DoJ and supporting his initiatives:

“The guy is obviously no fool. He knows he's letting himself in for nothing but grief by going for this job, so he probably has a strong sense of right and wrong and duty.”

That's exactly the kind of person needed to reform the DoJ.

So, we will be treated to the spectacle of Democrats in Barr’s confirmation hearings arguing that a guy who was unanimously confirmed for AG during the presidency of George H.W. Bush, recently beatified in the media, now is a moral leper unfit for office. Will they bring Prof Blasey-Ford in to recover some memories of him?"...….
Another Good Sign: Dirty Cop Keeps an Eye on Good Cop...

Servility by Civility

"If only a future populist president and his Deplorable Minions would heed the better angels of their Angelic Betters in Washington, D.C. ..."--Stuff Lincoln Said On the Interwebs
Did the Elder Bush eat a dog, or refrain from eating a dog?

Because Obama ate a dog. ...
Michelle Malkin called out the press for this passive-aggressive, femmy-bitchy habit of degradation disguised as "elevation:"

The Washington Post's lead article on Bush's passing bemoaned: "'Honorable, gracious and decent': In Death, Bush Becomes a Yardstick for President Trump." Yes, it's a virtue-signaling yardstick to wallop Trump with in hopes of beating him into Beltway media submission.
Over at CNN, correspondent Jamie Gangel derided Trump’s somber visit to the U.S. Capitol to pay his respects as Bush 4'’s casket arrived at the rotunda to lie in state. Gangel trashed Trump's ceremonial salute to Bush as "theatrical" and rejected veteran Beltway commentator David Gergen’s assessment that Trump deserved credit for his decorum.
"I'm concerned that we shouldn't give credit to someone for not kicking dirt on the grave of a person who just passed away," said Jeffery Engel, rebuking Gergen during an interview with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper. (Yes, that’s the same Cooper who demonstrated his commitment to civil discourse by infamously mocking Tea Party conservatives by using a degrading slang term for an oral-sex act -- also in an interview with poor David Gergen.)
Let’s stop pretending and give the historical whitewash a rest. This isn’t about celebrating "civility.” It's about weaponizing "civility.'
"Weaponizing civility"? That sounds like fun!

But first, here's more praise from the Left for President Bush:

The Daily Beast: How George H.W. Bush Rescued the CIA and Earned Its Respect
The agency's reputation was at a low point when Bush was brought in to help repair it—an assignment he thought was President Ford's way of burying his political career.

"When George H.W. Bush took the helm of the CIA in January 1976, the place was in a shambles. A little more than a year earlier, in December 1974, the New York Times disclosed how the CIA violated its charter and spied on U.S. anti-war groups. Seymour Hersh’s piece was based on part of a secret CIA history, known as the “family jewels,” that detailed everything from domestic wiretapping to assassination plots against foreign leaders such as Fidel Castro. By the time Bush became director, two congressional committees were investigating the CIA’s darkest secrets.
It was in this environment that Bush charmed the CIA at its most vulnerable hour. John McLaughlin, who remembers briefing Bush on communist parties in Europe, says he was “extraordinarily gracious.” “Every time you briefed him, you got a personal note thanking you,” said McLaughlin..." …….
Now fast forward three decades to 2016: you've got a president who was mentored by the very Communists that the CIA used to wiretap, and a CIA Director who voted for the Stalinist Gus Hall and the murderous revolutionary Angela Davis. Say what you will, but George H. W. Bush never took advice from bloodthirsty Commies. Except for David Gergen.

The wheel had turned full circle; instead of J. Edgar and the CIA wiretapping domestic Communists, you now had Commie Brennan and Corrupt Comey wiretapping a Revolutionary Republican, Donald J. Trump.

You see, Candidate Trump has a dangerous, crazy, revolutionary idea: that the American Government should be run by the American people. No wonder they all lost their minds.

As Pres. Ford's CIA Director, Bush never used British and Australian spies to wiretap Jimmy Carter or paid off reporters to smear him. CIA Director Bush had too much respect for the office to do that.

And as president, Bush did not allow Secretaries of State Larry Eagleburger or James Baker to run a world-wide bribery ring out of the back-door of the State Department. He was just funny that way.

Nor did he weaponize the entire National Security apparatus as a campaign arm to wiretap, smear and frame Bill Clinton. He would have regarded that as sedition. And rightly so.

I'm gonna miss that guy.

Here, Lt. Bush is pictured not ordering the illegal unmasking of Tank Commander Mike Dukakis.
He was better than that.
