"Communism the Disease" by Ronald Reagan

Radio Commentary, May 1975

"Mankind has survived all manner of evil diseases and plagues. But can it survive Communism?

I’ll be right back. ...

When a disease like communism hangs on as it has for a half century or more, it’s good, now and then, to be reminded of just how vicious it really is. Of course, those who have the disease use all kinds of misleading terms to describe its symptoms and its effects. For example, if you and I in America planted land mines on our borders, ringed the country with barb wire and machine gun toting guards to keep anyone from leaving the country, we’d hardly describe that as “liberating” the people.

But we’ve grown so used to communist doubletalk. I sometimes think we’ve lost some of our fear of the disease. We need frequent vaccination to guard against being infected until the day when this health threat will be eliminated as we eliminated the black plague.

Now the Associated Press brings another story from Berlin illustrating how the communist sickness looks upon human life—even the life of a child.

Berlin is divided, as we know, into the East or sick-with-communism side and the well or Western side. Between the two flows the Spree River. Around noon on May 11, a 5-year-old boy fell into the river. Firemen from West Berlin started to go to his rescue. An East German patrol boat barred them from entering the water because at that point the stream flows wholly on East Berlin territory. The 5-year-old boy drowned.

The Mayor of West Berlin described the refusal of the East German guards to permit the Westerners to come to his rescue as “an incomprehensible and frightful act—placing political considerations before the saving of a human life.” Which is exactly what they did. Remember they were in a patrol boat—they chose to prevent the West Germans from entering in their Eastern water rather than go to the child’s rescue themselves. But they did tidy things up—3 hours later East German frog men recovered the body.

Communism is neither an economic or political system—it is a form of insanity—a temporary aberration which will one day disappear from the earth because it is contrary to human nature. I wonder how much more misery it will cause before it disappears." .......

The Good News

Matthew 5:16  The Message Bible (MSG)

14-16 “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.

Thank You for Your Word, Heavenly Father. In Jesus' Name we pray, Amen and amen!

Fusion GPS and the #ProfessionalLiar Media: A Match Made in Moscow!

"...and if you help me with Iran, I'll be your human doormat. Deal?"
Via Powerline, Kimberly Strassel:

"We know that at the exact time Fusion was working with the Russians, the firm had also hired a former British spy, Christopher Steele, to dig up dirt on Mr. Trump. Mr. Steele compiled his material, according to his [Trump Dossier] memos, based on allegations from unnamed Kremlin insiders and other Russians. Many of the claims sound eerily similar to the sort of “oppo” [former Soviet counterintelligence officer] [Rinat] Akhmetshin peddled. [Akhmetshin attended the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner.]

We know that [GPS Fusion co-founder Glenn] Simpson is tight with Democrats. His current attorney, Joshua Levy, used to work in Congress as counsel to no less than Chuck Schumer. We know from a [Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck] Grassley letter that Fusion has in the past sheltered its clients’ true identities by filtering money through law firms or shell companies (Bean LLC and Kernel LLC).

Word is Mr. Simpson has made clear he will appear for a voluntary committee interview only if he is not specifically asked who hired him to dig dirt on Mr. Trump. Democrats are going to the mat for him over that demand. Those on the Judiciary Committee pointedly did not sign letters in which Mr. Grassley demanded that Fusion reveal who hired it.

Here’s a thought: What if it was the Democratic National Committee or Hillary Clinton’s campaign? What if that money flowed from a political entity on the left, to a private law firm, to Fusion, to a British spook, and then to Russian sources? Moreover, what if those Kremlin-tied sources already knew about this dirt-digging, tipped off by Mr. Akhmetshin? What if they specifically made up claims to dupe Mr. Steele, to trick him into writing this dossier?".......

Legal Insurrection:

GRAHAM: You believe that Fusion GPS should have registered under FARA because they were acting on behalf of the Russians?
BROWDER: That’s correct.
GRAHAM: I want to absorb that for a moment. The group that did the dossier on President Trump hired this British spy, wound up getting it to the FBI. You believe they were working for the Russians.
BROWDER: And in the spring and summer of 2016, they [Fusion GPS] were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official.
GRAHAM: Okay. So these are the people that were trying to undermine Donald Trump by showing he had nefarious ties to Russia. Is that what you’re saying?
BROWDER: Well, what I’m saying with 100% certainty is that they were working to undermine the Magnitsky Act.
Then Graham brings up lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya:
GRAHAM: Is she working for the Russians?
BROWDER: She is definitely working for the Russians. No question about it.
GRAHAM: So here’s the deal in June of last year. Allegedly she is meeting with Donald Trump, Jr., and the premise of the meeting was the Russian government’s behind Trump and you need to meet with these people. They can help your campaign and Trump says I love it and they met with this lady. Is that the general idea what happened last June?
BROWDER: That’s apparently what was reported happened in June.
GRAHAM: So she’s working for the Russians and she’s trying to communicate with her oligarch friends that the Russians are on Trump’s side. Got an email to that effect.
BROWDER: Right. Yes.
GRAHAM: Is it common for Russia to play both sides against the middle?
BROWDER: Yes. What you need to understand about the Russians is there is no ideology at all. They’re just in the business, Vladimir Putin, is in the business of trying to create chaos.
GRAHAM: You’ve looked at this closer than anybody I know. You believe Fusion GPS is actually backed by the Russians. They’re trying to find dirt on Trump. You believe this Russian lawyer Natalia is working for the Russians, she has been introduced to Don, Jr., by a business partner of the Trumps, saying the Russian government’s behind you, they want to help you, you need to meet with this lady. That’s kind of interesting."

And the Clintons oppo$ed the Magnitsky  Act--just like their employer Vladimir Putin! Free Beacon:

"Hillary Clinton opposed Russia sanctions in 2010 when her husband, former President Bill Clinton, was paid to give a speech at the Russian bank Renaissance Capital, Fox News reports.
The bank was connected to the fraud case that led to the sanctions posed by the Magnitsky Act, and after the former president gave the speech, Russian President Vladimir Putin called him to say thanks.".......

Ace of Spades:
Mollie Hemingway digests Browyard's testimony.
The full testimony is here, and I strongly advise you to read it. It's gripping as hell.
It's also alarming -- not just about the incredible brutality, venality, and corruption of the Russian government, but the even more frightening Shadow Media in the US which takes money from corrupt governments to get stories friendly to them planted in US media accounts, or to kill stories they don't like.
This tweet also has some of the highlights.
Lee Smith also checks in and digests the accusations flying about Fusion GPS. This is amazing stuff.
I'm not going to get into the details -- you'll have to click for those; this all seems very scary to me, scary enough I don't even want to mention this stuff -- but here's Lee Smith's conclusion:
It’s one of the peculiar paradoxes of the media today that the firm that sparked the anti-Trump resistance, and fueled the patriotism of those newly awakened to the dangers of Russian interference in American political institutions is working with companies intimately linked with Moscow. Fusion GPS is working to undo the U.S. sanctions on Russia implemented by the Magnitzky Act, and has been networked into Gazprom’s investment in Venezuela’s energy sector alongside Derwick Associates. And yet the U.S. media is focused on the Great Kremlin Conspiracy, the fruit of what appears to be only one in a series of smear campaigns waged by Fusion GPS. Sure, the reasons are partly ideological—Trump is not the press’ preferred candidate. And financial—the daily campaign against Trump is driving traffic that print and broadcast haven’t seen in a long time. The press has its hands tied. “If they report that the Russia dossier is probably nonsense,” said Halvorssen, “and Fusion GPS is running information operations across the media, then that calls into question all the other stories that Fusion GPS has fed journalists in the past. Why are so few journalists willing to look into Fusion GPS?”
In order to report honestly on the Trump scandals, a weakened press would have to report honestly on Fusion GPS—which would mean lifting the lid on the incompetence and malfeasance of their own institutions and colleagues, which would reveal a scandal as threatening to democracy as anything Trump has said or done. “Imagine if they subpoena Fusion GPS’s emails,” said a veteran Washington reporter, “there are going to be lots of journalists in there who’ve taken stories from them. Big names, senior figures in the field. It will look like an apocalypse.”

Well, well, well. Whaddaya know?

Our much-vaunted Democracy-Dies-In-Darkness-Media is taking dictation from Putin.

And calling it "journalism".

It sure is.

Here's a journalistic question:

Was Imran Awan tasked with finding Seth Rich?
Debbie Does Dulles

Collusion News Networks Hide Their Own Collusion-UPDATE:

Daily Caller: "Spy Christopher Steele leaned on anonymous Russian sources in crafting the dossier for Fusion GPS. Steele’s lawyers revealed in court filings that, in September 2016, Steele briefed reporters from The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo! News, The New Yorker and CNN on behalf of Fusion GPS. Steele later held another meeting with reporters from the NYT, WaPo and Yahoo. ...
Fusion GPS, which is headed up by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, was working for a Democratic ally of Hillary Clinton at that time, although that ally’s name is not publicly known.
Those same media outlets that worked with Fusion GPS to receive information on the Republican nominee now appear to be helping Fusion GPS stay out of the public spotlight.
Bill Browder, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that “in the Spring and Summer of 2016 they [Fusion GPS] were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official” for their work to undermine the Magnitsky Act, a human rights law fiercely opposed by Putin that sanctions Russian criminals. At the same time that Fusion GPS was crafting the dossier allegedly exposing the Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russian government, they were also working to advance Russian interests...

The NYT, WaPo and CNN have all appeared disinterested in digging into Fusion GPS’ shady ties. The three outlets have combined for zero articles mentioning Fusion GPS since Browder’s testimony, despite the explosive allegations contained within it. (RELATED: Grassley Blasts Dems For Blocking Hearing On Trump Dossier)
The only mention of Fusion GPS on CNN after Browder’s testimony on Thursday (and in the days since) came from Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who went out of his way in an interview Thursday morning to stress the seriousness of the matter, despite CNN asking zero questions about Fusion GPS.
“Fusion GPS was on the payroll, apparently, according to this guy of the Russian government. And I want to know what they did in terms of trying to compromise Donald Trump, who is now our president. So what should we learn from all of this? That the Russians were involved on both sides, they definitely tried to tip the scale against Clinton and for Trump. But the Fusion GPS organization that was trying to get the goods on Donald Trump was backed by the Russians,” Graham said.
CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to steer Graham back to talking about Trump, asking a question about Donald Trump Jr., but Graham returned to the subject to emphasize just how grave he believed the Fusion GPS situation to be.
“The GPS, Fusion GPS situation, the guy’s not coming. If we have to subpoena the people at Fusion GPS, we need to subpoena them. Because Mr. Browder has now accused them of — working for the Russians,” Graham said. “And at the end of the day, if that’s true, the Democratic Party is working with somebody who was working with the Russians, whether they knew it or not.”

CNN’s next question changed the topic

They gleefully and uncritically published Russian propaganda
and are now trying to bury that fact with a News Black-Out...of their own Russian Collusion.

Arro-Care: There's No Cure For Arrogance

But We're Working On It!

"My health care plan will make it easier for more Americans to find and keep good health care insurance. His [Obama's] plan will force small businesses to cut jobs, reduce wages, and force families into a government-run health care system where a bureaucrat stands between you and your doctor."--Sen. John McCain, 2008

Don Surber:

"While Congress voted to give Charlie Gard a meaningless U.S. residency, they just voted to keep a system that will segue into the National Health Service, which is the British government's way of deciding who lives and who dies.

To recap, the taxpayers just moved heaven on Earth to fund minor eye surgery/brain surgery/cranial transplant for John McCain, then spared no expense to fly him back to Washington so that Obamacare can live until it devolves into the National Health Service.

It is easy to blame voters in Arizona for this mess, but 50 other senators enabled him to do this, didn't they?

It's not just McCain and every Democratic senator and a few RINOs.

Age limits and term limits might help, but there is an ample supply of replacements out there who are even worse. Barbara Boxerbot gave way to Kamala Harrisbot.

Vote them out?

We did that with Donald Trump.

He isn't our last chance. He is theirs. They either shape up under President Trump, or they may really see trouble next time.".......

Maybe ObamaCare should be called "John-JohnCare", since it was rescued by John Roberts and John McCain.

When Chief Justice Roberts rescued ObamaCare, he had to make words mean the opposite of what they mean. He said he was respecting democracy, but really he was short-circuiting it; many lawmakers had then been elected because of ObamaCare, and they would have had to work it out with Obama but for Roberts' scofflaw meddling.

Fittingly, that was the same court term which produced same-sex "marriage". Obama lied to the voters about being against it, while packing the Court with leftists he knew would impose it. Those arrogant hacks didn't let him down, decreeing that American society was too stupid to have a say in defining the institution that is a major building block of that society.

This is what passes for governance today; arrogance, Big Government statism, subterfuge and judicial tyranny.

But let's not forget hypocrisy and greed:

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 7 hours ago
"If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!"

The President is referring to the Illegal Obama Exemption given to Congress and their staffs, a subsidy worth $5,000 per individual and $12, 000 per family that Congress has enjoyed for years, courtesy of the taxpayers. An un-American exemption granted by an anti-American president.

And soon-to-be ended by a real American president.

If he can live with Washington's handiwork, so can the Congress. Let them live under their own rules.
Rescind the Congressional BAILOUT, Mr. President!

Preview: "What Happened" by Hillary Rodham Clinton

New York Times Best-Smeller!

"Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with... geometric logic... that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox DID exist, and I'd have produced that key if they hadn't of pulled the old Macedonian Content Farm-trick on me!".

"It was a dark and stormy-3 a.m. phone call from Libya-kind of night. Or would be, if I took 3 a.m. phone calls from Libya.  The tension in the room was as thick as the bulge in Sandy Berger's underwear at the National Archives. Oh, who are we kidding; Berger doesn't wear underwear. Or socks. But that's another book. Which is what the librarian told him.

The temperature inside the Russian Embassy reception was a blistering 68 degrees and I was beginning to feel faint, when suddenly, our eyes met from across the crowded room. Or would have, if I hadn't been wearing my coke-bottle Frensel Prism lenses to stop the double vision.

It was him; the Macedonian cyber-criminal mastermind Gucifer. The man who had cunningly tricked Podesta into setting his password as "password". The hairs on the back of my neck stood up. Or would have, if I weren't heavily sedated by the Diazepam/vodka cocktail I'd just swallowed in the bathroom.

Yes, I knew why the Macedonian was there; he had been sent by Putin and by the people and forces that cost me the election, including, but not limited to:

the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, spam-bots, civil rights opponents, Republican donors, Citizens United, The Supreme Court, Republican governors and legislatures, Cambridge Analytica, Twitter, content farms, Fake News, Facebook, 1,000 Russian Agents, the RNC, the Democrat Party, ORCA, the Mercers, Brexit, psychographics, Kushner, Bannon, Conway, machine learning, algorithms, Macedonia, Info Wars, the Mainstream Media, rural voters, Governor Scott Walker, Pennsylvannia, rumors of my lizard-hood, Republican allied data, people screaming, “Lock her up, lock her up,”, the GRU, network executives, the profit motive, Netflix, local television stations, radio, the internet, Fox News, Sinclair Media, birthers, America’s political underbelly, racism, sexism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, stupid people and Philadelphia suburban women, to name but a few.

But mostly by Putin.

I knew what Gucifer wanted by the crazed look in his eye and his list of demands. But I could have told him it was Mission: Impossible. And would have, if the Paxil, gin and L-dopa smoothie I guzzled in the van weren't making me slur my words.

Putin sent Gucifer to get his money back. It seems Bill only gave a 12-minute speech in Moscow for the half-million, but Putin wanted the full hour of Bill's wise counsel and sage advice.

Here's some advice, Vladimir: We're the Clintons; We Never Give the Money Back.

Anyway, Gucifer is in prison now. Ya' know, it's funny; every time Bill or I get in trouble, it's always somebody else who ends up in jail or face-down, bleeding out on a D.C. sidewalk at 4 in the morning.

I guess we're just lucky that way.

And to all those who think I should step aside, I've got news for them; I'm going to persist in leading the Resistance and keep my hand in the game. After all, America still has 80% of it's uranium supplies...and they're up for sale!

Or would be, if I were your president."

"You've let me down, peasants!"

Oh, Wait... was the House Democrats' tech guy from their own homegrown Muslim Brotherhood, not Trump's.

That explains the total media blackout by the #FakeNews Alphabet Networks.

Because Democrat Schemes Die in Daylight.

Semper Fi-UPDATE: Remember that oath Marines take that says "against all enemies, foreign and domestic"?

From last week: EXCLUSIVE: FBI Seized Smashed Hard Drives From Wasserman Schultz IT Aide’s Home

"Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.
One of the new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”
The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and, not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.
“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”
Wasserman Schultz resigned as DNC chief in July 2016 after the committee’s IT system was hacked. She has since refused to fire Imran despite learning that he is a target of a criminal investigation.
The Marine said Imran wanted the hard drives back so desperately that he threatened to sue the renter for stealing them.
“It was unbelievable. I don’t know where they get off thinking they’re going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto,” he said.
Imran came to the house for the items “three to four times,” but the Marine wouldn’t let him enter.".......

Being Donald Trump: An Investigation in Search of a Crime--and the Crime is Being Donald Trump

"Don't be deceived because you are not hearing the sound of gunfire, because even so you are fighting for your lives."--Ronald Reagan, 1957

"Nemesis does not work that way: those it destroys, it first makes mad."--Victor Davis Hanson

"A fondness for power is implanted, in most men, and it is natural to abuse it, when acquired. ...What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the Spirit of Resistance?"--Thomas Jefferson

The Daily Rushbo:  RUSH: "Here’s what else is going on, folks, because Mueller has no limits. He’s hired, as we all know now, a staff of at least 14 lawyers, and it may be more, and each of them have assistants and clerks. This is a massive, massive amount of people that Mueller has hired.
Last I heard, they were all Hillary and Bill Clinton supporters and Obama supporters. They were all either donors, fundraisers, bundlers. They are liberal activists for the Democrat Party, Clinton and Obama, and that’s who Mueller has hired. Now, there was an original theory that the reason he did that is because at some point Trump’s gonna be exonerated and it wouldn’t fly unless there’s a bunch of Hillary and Obama people on the investigating committee. I think that’s all wet. I don’t think they want to exonerate Trump. I think they’re gonna keep looking.
This is the point. They don’t have any limits. There are no parameters. The Justice Department has not limited the scope of Mueller’s investigation at all. So here’s what this also is. As it stands now, the Mueller investigation is probably going to be the biggest, most massive opposition research operation ever conducted in American politics. With this investigation having no bounds and no limits, this team can go anywhere to find any dirt whatsoever. In fact, for the presidential election in 2020, this is a godsend. A team of Obama-Hillary donors investigating every aspect of a sitting president that they detest.
An opposition research festival that has been sanctioned by law, an opposition research investigation that can go anywhere as deep as it wants to dredge up anything they can find on a sitting president and to heck with what comes of the investigation. The data being produced here, I mean as much as things leaked now, it wouldn’t be a challenge at all to have some of whatever they find end up in the presidential campaign of 2020. An investigation certified by the president’s own Justice Department to investigate him! A free pass with an unlimited budget! There has never been an opposition research examination or investigation or operation that even gets close to this!
And the message here is, “Outsiders beware. You think you can come in here and totally take over what we, the insiders, own and operate? You think you can come in from outside and just grab control of the establishment and of the levers of government and do what you want to do with it? No way.” And that’s exactly the message here. You want to have your life destroyed, you want to have your life turned upside down, you want to have an official investigation into everything you’ve been doing and everything you are, this is what we in the establishment do.".......

SteynOnline: The Real Crime:

"On Saturday morning, Mark started the day with Abby, Pete and Clayton on "Fox & Friends" discussing the latest ructions inside and outside the White House:
The "selective leaks" of sensitive information that have plagued this administration are the real crime, Steyn said.
Mueller expanded the Russia probe this week to include Trump's personal finances, including a 2008 Florida real estate deal. The president hit back in a statement, saying the intrusion was beyond the intended scope of the probe.
The only interference in the 2016 presidential election was not by the Russians but by the "deep state, the permanent bureaucracy, the media, the Democrats, and half the Republican party, who have not accepted what happened on a Tuesday night in November and have determined to interfere with it."
Click below to watch - or if that doesn't display properly (as apparently it doesn't on some browsers) you can watch the full interview here".......

Even Mark Steyn's commenters are top-notch:

Paul GianakonJul 22, 2017 at 22:04
"Yay Mark Steyn. Having run roughshod over the Constitution during the past 8 years, the Obama holdovers are now doing their best to gut the crowning glory of America-- the peaceful transition of power. Like FDR the progressive statist before him, Obama despises Washington's humble example of self restraint for which George III called him the greatest man in history. The Constitution has always been first in the hearts of Washington's country men because they read the Old Testament and Shakespeare and recognized the ruthlessness and savagery of the struggle for power throughout history. Now that those pillars are being banished from the curriculum, a fool like Justice Ginsberg can go to the then Moslem Brotherhood ruled Egypt and inveigh against the inadequacy of our founding documents without fear of societal condemnation. And Sally Yates is feted at the foremost law school in America for refusing the fact that power had passed via the election to a new Constitutional designate. I am hopeful that Jeff Sessions is not the avuncular Polygrip spokesman he appeared to be at the recent Senate hearing , but that somewhere a grand jury is examining the actions taken in the waning days of the Obama administration to undermine the incoming administration, and that there will emerge a series of indictments and one jug-eared unindicted co-conspirator."

Rick Moran:
"Can anyone doubt the Russian game? Russia hacks the DNC and Podesta seeming to favor Trump in the presidential election. Innocuous -- or otherwise -- meetings with Trump campaign people, including Donald Jr., are subsequently blown far out of proportion by the American media who are now being played by high-level Russian government officials -- including Putin and Lavrov -- to fan the flames of hysteria against Trump.
This is not Russia favoring Hillary or Trump. This is Russia sowing the seeds of chaos and division in America They're not interested as much in who is running America as they are in weakening the government and cleaving the country in two.
The American media has been Putin's willing partner is creating this terrible situation. They are being played by experts who have studied the American press for decades and are experts at misinformation, disinformation, and outright manipulation. In truth, the Russians didn't have to try very hard or be very subtle about it.
Whatever Putin wants to do in the near future -- invade the Baltics, pressure Eastern Europe, annex part of Ukraine -- the US will be too divided and weak to stop them.
For Putin: Mission accomplished.".......

"...and that's how our system of  government works, Susie; we elect a president, and the Permanent Blob works night and day to subvert our choice because They Know Better(tm)."
I was willing to give Mueller the benefit of the doubt. But we know now that he is just another player in the Perma-Blob's Cockroach Coup.

1.) Sessions never should have recused himself, especially knowing how slimy Democrats painted him as a Klansman when in fact he prosecuted Klansmen. Sessions is playing by "My Esteemed Colleague"-rules in a Puerto Rican knife-fight. It's one thing to choose that for himself, but he's inflicted it on the nation.

2.) If Mueller were honorable, he would not have accepted a dishonorable assignment.

3,) Mueller has a huge conflict of interest, given his friendship with Comey and his institutional bias in favor of the FBI. He will not challenge Comey's or the Bureau's misconduct.

4.) Mueller was the Director who stripped all Islamic references from the FBI's terrorism manuals, proving that he puts political correctness ahead of the safety of Americans.

5.) Mueller has hired only partisan Democrats to persecute his targets.

6.) Mueller even hired Preet Bharara, who hinted darkly that he was fired for investigating Trump. That was false, malicious and unprofessional--yet seems to have qualified him to a place on Mueller's team to further his vendetta.

7.) Mueller's legal hacks are already leaking; unethical, unprofessional and possibly criminal.

That said, this entire travesty of justice isn't really aimed at Trump. It's aimed at you.

It is meant to tell you that the Government belongs to the Swamp Creatures. You need to sit down, shut-up and take whatever they dish out because you are Property of the State. A subject. A peasant. A peon. A mere worm to be crushed by the Feddle Leviathan. You have no business trying to govern yourselves.

Their team can collude with Russia, commit treason with Iran and sell pardons and take bribes all day long without a special counsel. But as soon as the people fight back, they invent a fairy tale to repress those reforms and cling to power--the power that has corrupted them absolutely.

These viciously corrupt and arrogant slugs mean to put their boot-heel on America's neck. Now--and forever.

Go to hell.

“Obamacare was a big lie. You can keep your doctor? Lie. You can keep your plan? Lie. It was a lie, directly from the president. Twenty-eight times, he said it. Twenty-eight times. It was a lie and he knew it was, and now it is hurting this country irreparably.”--President Trump, telling the truth

Sen. Rand Paul:

"Some say Republicans must act or lose their majority in Congress, and that it is political suicide to do nothing. I say it is worse to do the wrong thing.

If Republicans accept, as they appear to, the Democrats’ premise that the federal government has the prerogative to subsidize a private industry, there is no end to the mischief that may yet occur.

“New car prices are too high,” they will cry. Why not a new car stabilization fund to bring down car prices?

And on and on. Now that there is virtually no Republican opposition to government intervention in the marketplace, how long until capitalism withers away or is stamped out by Republocrats?

Some say Republicans must act even if the bill is not that good; we must act or risk losing our majority. But would it be worth it after all, after knowing Adam Smith, Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman, to simply act for action’s sake but forfeit our liberty’s soul in the process?
The last remaining vestige of the freedom-loving soul, the dying embers of belief in the marketplace, will expire before our very eyes.

Upon this crucible, this false hope of cheap insurance through massive subsidies, burn the beliefs that made America great.

The freedom of exchange, the freedom of choice implicit in free transactions, is consumed by this bill. With a whimper of defeat, capitalism is cast off without a second thought.

It is not really so much about the loss of prosperity that comes from central planning, though  there will without question be a loss of prosperity as the Obamacare philosophy slowly ebbs its way into every corner of the marketplace.
If we are to subsidize health insurance, why not food? Or water? Or housing? You may respond, yes, but we already do that. You are right we have subsidized, for the poor, food and housing, but we didn’t, until now, attempt to subsidize a market item for all.
With this bill, Senate Republicans declare they have overcome Hayek’s protestations about the pretense of knowledge — the idea that no central planner can know enough to engineer an economy successfully.

With this bill, Senate Republicans declare they have the knowledge to determine and correct prices for millions of Americans who purchase health insurance. Pretense? You bet it is.
Markets are incredibly complex interactions between millions of people in a nearly simultaneous bazaar of trading. No one man or woman possesses that knowledge, so anyone who sets or attempts to set prices for health insurance is doomed to fail.
And mark my words, this Senate Healthcare bill will fail just as its twin Obamacare has, for they suffer from the same pretense of knowledge. No one is smart enough to plan even the simplest of marketplace prices — no matter how much data is available.

The Soviet Union failed for one simple reason: they could not determine the correct price of bread. Instead of allowing demand to intersect with supply to distribute the greatest amount of bread to the most amount of people, the Soviets decided upon a moral price as determined by a dictatorship of the proletariat.
The results are now history — look it up. Sometimes the politburo guessed a price for bread too high, and the bread rotted on store shelves. Sometimes the politburo guessed a price too low, and the shelves were bare of bread. The people, though, learned quickly. Without even knowing of Friedrich Hayek’s pretense of knowledge they learned that an abundance of bread existed whenever and wherever the black market or freedom existed. Because the black market was that place where demand met supply, and prices were democratically determined by capitalism.

Some estimate more than a third of the Soviet GDP came from the freedom of black markets.
If only the Senate had a notion of knowledge or history, they would reject Obamacare. The Senate would dispel any pretense to special planning skills. The Senate would evict the notion of centralized planning and show sufficient confidence in freedom.".......  

He's right, of course--and probably a hundred years too late.

The Federalist: "Senate leadership will only move to a vote on the 2015 repeal bill—which some conservative groups have argued for—if it knows it will fail."

Kimberly Strassel:

"The House bill isn’t perfect—no bill ever is—but it amounts to the biggest entitlement reform in history. It repeals crushing taxes. It dramatically cuts spending. And it begins the process of stabilizing the individual health-care market and expanding consumer freedom.
None of this is good enough for a handful of senators, so now it’s time to make this exercise all about them. Mr. McConnell should make clear that the overwhelming majority of the Republican Party stands ready to make good on its repeal-and-replace campaign promise—and that it would have done so already were it not for a cynical or egotistic few. It’s time for some very public accountability.
That rests in Mr. McConnell giving his caucus a drop-dead date to broker a compromise, after which he will proceed to bring up the House bill. And any Republican who votes against moving forward, “a motion to proceed,” will forever be known as the Republican who saved ObamaCare. The Republican who voted to throw billions more taxpayer dollars at failing entitlement programs and collapsing insurance markets. The Republican who abandoned struggling American families. The Republican who voted against a tax cut and spending reductions. The Republican who made Chuck Schumer’s year.
And that’s only a short list of the real-world accountability.".......

End Their Illegal Exemption, Mr. President

Fox: Hillary Clinton sided with Russia on sanctions as Bill made $500G on Moscow speech

"The Russian lawyer who landed a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. during last year’s presidential campaign with the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton had one big thing in common with the Democratic candidate: Both had opposed Russia sanctions targeting human-rights abusers. 
Further, former Secretary of State Clinton’s initial opposition coincided with a $500,000 speech her husband gave in Moscow – a link her 2016 campaign fought to downplay in the press, according to WikiLeaks-released documents.
Trump White House officials now are trying to draw attention to that speech and the Clintons’ ties to Russia in a bid to counter criticism over Trump Jr.’s now-infamous meeting.
“If you want to talk about having relationships with Russia, I'd look no further than the Clintons,” Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a briefing last week. “Bill Clinton was paid half a million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank, personally thanked by President Putin.”
“With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC’s opposition to the Magnitsky bill a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow.”
- May, 2015 email from Clinton campaign staffer
The former president indeed had received a personal call from then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressing his appreciation for the speech. According to Mrs. Clinton’s ethics disclosure form filed while she was secretary of State, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 by the Russia-based finance company Renaissance Capital for his June 29, 2010, speech in Moscow to its employees and guests attending the company's annual conference.
The speech is now coming back to haunt the Clintons, considering the company that cut the check was allegedly tied to the scandal that spurred the Global Magnitsky Act, a bill that imposed sanctions on Russians designated as human-rights abusers and eventually would become law in 2012.                                          
This was the same law Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was lobbying against during her sit-down with Trump Jr. last year. And back in 2010, it would have put the Clintons on her side.
Shortly before Bill Clinton’s speech in 2010, when members of Congress pushing the sanctions bill had asked Hillary Clinton to refuse visas to Russian officials implicated under the policy, the State Department denied the request. The Obama administration initially was opposed to the Magnitsky Act because then-President Barack Obama was seeking a “reset” with Russia and did not want to deepen the divide between the two countries.
Former President Bill Clinton’s speech to Renaissance just weeks later was all the more curious, considering Renaissance’s Russian investment bank executives would have been banned from the U.S. under the law.
Fast-forward to 2015, and the timeline apparently had caught the attention of Bloomberg News.
According to a memo from Clinton’s presidential campaign team later published by WikiLeaks, however, the Clinton campaign was able to stop the presses.
“With the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC’s opposition to the Magnitsky bill a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow,” Jesse Lehrich, on the Rapid Response Communications team for Hillary For America, boasted on May 21, 2015.".......

The Good News

We serve a God who answers prayer. Thank You Heavenly Father, in Jesus' Name we pray, Amen and Amen!
Hat Tip: ONT 

Boris and Natasha Weren't Russian Agents; They Were Democrat Agents

Sent By Obama To Set Up Donald Trump, Jr. For Wiretapping

Which one is the puppet?
A: Trick Question!

Don Surber:

"The irony of last week's Big Leak on Don Jr. (likely by Robert Mueller) is that it is helping reveal that the real criminal activity was by the Democratic Party.

Lying Loretta Lynch sought a secret warrant to wiretap Team Trump in June 2016. The federal court turned her request down. Now DC Whispers reported the Administration wiretapped anyway -- just like President Trump said on March 4.

From DCWhispers:

The sting operation was put in place via a Russian attorney/operative named  Natalia Veselnitskaya whose social media history marks her as an adamant anti-Trumper and who was granted a special exemption to travel into the United States by the Obama Department of Justice. The sting was further facilitated by a Russian-born American citizen named Rinat Akhmetshin who was granted citizenship during the Obama era and who as as D.C. lobbyist is well-connected to the D.C. political establishment and is said to have been instrumental in the creation of an anti-Trump dossier Trump’s political opponents were preparing to use against him during the campaign. (And then sought out and turned over to the FBI by anti-Trumper John McCain – see related story HERE )
It appears that once Veselnitskaya received confirmation she would be granted an audience with Donald Trump Jr. and other members of the Trump campaign, Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered an illegal recording of that meeting.".....

*Veselskitnaya appeared at a Congressional hearing eight days after her Trump meeting-- a reward for helping to set up Trump, Jr.? Obama's Russian Ambassador McFaul testified and stressed how she was not a government agent, but just a private Russian citizen. Now Democrats say the opposite. Which is it?

*When the Clinton campaign accepted oppo research from the Ukranian government, did that violate the law against receiving a "thing of value" from a foreign government to affect an election? Democrats say that it's okay because Ukraine is our ally and Russia is an enemy. If Russia is an enemy, why did Sec. Clinton arrange for American technology to be transferred at the Russian Silicon Valley in Skolkovo? And why did she let an enemy have 20% of America's uranium? While her husband was giving half-million dollar speeches in the enemy's capital, no less? And if Ukraine is our ally, why did Obama deny them arms to fight our enemy, the Russians?

*Loretta Lynch personally let Veselnitskaya in after she was denied entry. Lynch then personally extended her extremely rare "parole" a second time until January 2016. Yet somehow she's either back or never left in June 2016. And she's hired commie "Red" Dellums to help her lobby.

June is a very interesting month. Trump clinches the nomination in late May. On June 3, Goldstone emails Trump, Jr., using words that seem designed to justify a FISA warrant. On June 9, the meeting takes place, but there is no oppo research presented, only Magnitsky Act issues. On June 14, Veselnitskaya appears at the Congressional Hearing. She has since denied any knowledge or intent to talk about Hillary, leaving Goldstone as the sole instigator.

On June 27, Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch hold their Tarmac Summit, even though his wife is under investigation.

And on an unknown date in June, the FISA court turns down a request for the first time in many years, a request to wiretap Trump.

It would be interesting to know if that FISA request was made a day or two after the Tarmac Summit, wouldn't it?

And while the political appointees in charge of our intelligence agencies enjoyed spying on Trump, I wonder how those FISA Court judges feel about being drafted by Obama and Lynch, who turned the FISA Court into a de facto arm of the Clinton Campaign?

"FISA Court Jesters For Hillary--I'mWithHer!"?

Someone ought to ask them.

"This warrants a meeting!"

No One Likes an "Ayatollah You So!"

Time to Rescind Obama's Illegal and Arrogant Obamacare Exemption for Congress

“When you can't make the see the light, make them feel the heat."--Ronald Reagan

JustOneMinute: Health Care That's Always There

The Republican Senate "leadership" unveils the latest version in their "Health care that's always there - right around the corner" legislative train wreck.

"It's good for you, kid--not for us, but good enough for you!"

Jenny Beth Martin:

"as the January 1, 2014 implementation date for ObamaCare’s individual and employer mandates approached, members of Congress were worried less about how the law would affect their constituents than they were about how the law would affect themselves and their staffs. Buried in the law’s 2,000-plus pages was Section 1312(d)(3)(D), which requires members and their staffs to leave behind their generous Federal Employee Health Benefits Program health plans and instead purchase their health insurance directly through the ObamaCare exchanges, without benefit of an employer subsidy. That requirement, like the individual and employer mandates, would kick in on January 1, 2014.
After heavy lobbying by leaders of both parties on both sides of the Capitol dome, President Obama came to their rescue. He directed the Office of Personnel Management to issue a rule – now codified as 78 Fed. Reg. 60653-01 – declaring Congress itself a small business (!), the necessary subterfuge to set them up for the kicker: Because Congress was deemed a “small business,” “the DC Health Link Small Business Market administered by the DC Health Benefit Exchange Authority is the appropriate SHOP from which Members of Congress and designated congressional staff will purchase health insurance in order to receive a Government contribution.”
It was necessary to find a way to let members and staff into the small business exchange for a simple reason – it was the only way they could maintain their “employer contribution” toward their premiums. Those “contributions” – illegal taxpayer-financed subsidies, in reality – are worth about $5,000 for an individual policy, and close to $12,000 for a family policy. If members and staff had been required to purchase through the individual exchanges, as the law clearly intended, they would have had to pay their premiums on their own.
The good news is, what was done by one president with unilateral executive action can be undone by another president with unilateral executive action. Doing so would raise the temperature on Congress to get a real repeal bill on his desk before the end of the fiscal year, or suffer real personal consequences.
Further, taking such action would show that Trump is taking another step toward fulfilling his promise to “drain the swamp.” Little rankles the heartland as much as the perception that there are different laws, rules, and treatment for the benefit of the national capital’s ruling class. In this case, perception actually is reality. I’ve never seen a poll that showed less than 75 percent support for ending Congress’ illegal special exemption from ObamaCare.
So, President Trump – send a memo to the Office of Personnel Management directing them to announce that Congress’ illegal special exemption will be removed, effective October 1, 2017. Light a fire under Congress to come to agreement on a bill living up to your promise to repeal ObamaCare, and drain the swamp at the same time. It’s a winner all around.".......

There is no excuse, absolutely NONE--for Congress not living under the same laws they impose on the rest of us.

It's arrogant, perverted, disgusting, haughty, aristocratic, greedy and indefensible.

It's wrong and they should be ashamed that they haven't rejected this royal treatment themselves.

No wonder they won't do their jobs--they don't have any consequences for their malingering.

President Trump should give them one.

Pres. Antoinette's Cake-for-PeasantsCare
* If Obamacare is as wonderful as Democrats say, why did they immediately exempt themselves? Above the law much?

* It is the height of Orwellian perversity and Newspeak to allow Big Government  to call itself a "small business" to avoid the laws they passed themselves.

Congress has been doing something, though. They just voted to keep tax-payer-funded sex-change operations :

Rowan Scarborough: "Two-dozen House Republicans broke with their pro-defense brethren Thursday and helped Democrats kill an amendment that would have barred the military from funding transgender sex reassignment surgeries and hormone therapies.
The amendment to the annual National Defense Authorization Act, which sets out policies on America’s $696 billion military budget, failed 214-209, with all Democrats and 24 Republicans opposing.
It means the military health care system will be called on to provide such surgeries as routine treatments for the first time, unless the Trump administration changes Obama-era policies that allow transgender troops to remain on duty.
The amendment was brought by Rep. Vicky Hartzler, Missouri Republican and a member of the House Armed Services Committee, who said the military will be obligated to spend $3.7 billion the next 10 years on sex change operations."

You know--the Way the Founders Intended(tm).

"She said the money could better be spent on weapons and readiness accounts at a time when troops are fighting Islamist terrorism and facing possible showdowns with North Korea and Russia."......

They can't fix your healthcare, but they can "fix" Pvt. Manning's. Priorities, people!

We now have one set of laws for King B. Hussein Obama, the Clintons, illegal aliens, transgendered traitors and Congress...and another set for everybody else.

And every bit of it diametrically opposed to the founding principles of America; limited government, ordered liberty and the Consent of the Governed.

Worst. Political. Class. Ever.

And getting worse all the time, Doctor.

The Theme is Freedom

You Remember Freedom, Don't You?

Rumack: “You’d better tell the captain we’ve got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to Congress!”
Air stewardess: “Congress? What is it?”
Rumack: “It’s a big building with mental patients, but that’s not important right now--just like freedom isn't important."



While All That Our Disgustingly Hideous Narcissistic Political Class Can Do is Fixate and Obsess on Their #Fake-"Russia, Russia, Russia!"-Horse Shit, Millions and Millions of People Are Striving To Be Free.

And, yes--even in America

We'll do it without you.
