Four members of Mueller's team have donated to Democrats

Four members of special counsel Robert Mueller's team on the Russia probe have donated to Democratic presidential campaigns and organizations, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Michael Dreeben, who serves as the Justice Department’s deputy solicitor general, is working on a part-time basis for Mueller, The Washington Post reported Friday.

Dreeben donated $1,000 dollars to Hillary Clinton’s Senate political action committee (PAC), Friends of Hillary, while she ran for public office in New York. Dreeben did so while he served as the deputy solicitor general at the Justice Department.

Jeannie Rhee, another member of Mueller’s team, donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign PAC Hillary for America.

The political affiliations of Mueller's team have been spotlighted by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) an ally of Trump.

Jim DeMint says Washington 'will never fix itself'

Via Billy

Jim DeMint is the Forrest Gump of the Tea Party. He's been everywhere from the halls of Congress to the beating heart of the modern conservative movement at the Heritage Foundation. But after the better part of two decades, DeMint says it's all for naught.

"I've finally realized the most important truth of our time," DeMint said in a Monday press release. "Washington, D.C. will never fix itself." And so with that mindset, the fiery former South Carolina senator and Heritage president got himself a new job.

DeMint just signed on with the Convention of the States Project as a senior advisor. His goal is nothing short of redrafting the Constitution.

Judge Napolitano: Sessions Will Be Testifying As A Witness; Dangerous Position, He Should Not Testify

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano weighs in on Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to testify in an open hearing about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 election.

Bookmark for 2:00 pm Tuesday: Watch Live: AG Jeff Sessions Testifies On Contacts With Russians In 2016

JUDGE NAPOLITANO: [Newt Gingrich] is partially right in that Bob Mueller is not neutral. Prosecutors are not neutral, they prosecute people!

They believe that their targets are guilty and they amass evidence to justify that belief, that is what they do. They fact that Bob Mueller and Jim Comey may be friends, and colleagues, is also of no [matter]

It All Grows More Than A Bit Tedious And Predictable. But It Remains Dangerous For The President.


Having been both sorely disappointed and newly out rates that ex-Director Comey didn't create Donald Trump's bleeding corpse into the Senate hearing room the left is now embarked on pursuing even the most absurd of notions as if to try and prove him guilty by either ignoring recent example or crude simplistic analogy to a 400 year old fictional play. I kid you not.

News was released today that the Attorneys General of both Maryland and the District of Columbia are filing suit claiming that Donald Trump's businesses receiving money under legally executed contracts from foreign entities constituted a "conflict of interest" that they of course want the courts to interpret for them as an impeachable offense.

Never mind of course the millions if not billions of dollars the Clintons pocketed from everyone from the poor storm ravaged citizens of Haiti, to Kremlin linked Russian banks, to every corrupt and xenophobic Muslim Potentate between the Pillars of Hercules to Straits of Oman. Nope, no collusion or influence peddling involved there. "Move along folks there's nothing to see here."

Comey got 'steely silence' after confronting Loretta Lynch about Clinton's email probe

Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.
During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, Comey alluded to the second exchange after publicly discussing an encounter with Lynch, where she ordered him not to refer to the criminal probe of Clinton’ handling of classified emails not as an “investigation” but rather as a “matter.”  He suggested it smacked of political spin rather than the way professional law enforcement officers talk.

H.R. 2581, to ensure that illegal aliens cannot qualify for taxpayer-funded health insurance credits.

Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.) has introduced the Verify First Act, H.R. 2581, to ensure that illegal aliens cannot qualify for taxpayer-funded health insurance credits. The House of Representatives will vote on this bill on June 13.

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs reported that more than $700 million in Obamacare subsidies had been paid to ineligible aliens by 2015. The Verify First Act simply requires the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to actually verify the citizenship or immigration status of every applicant for a credit under the AHCA before the Treasury Department issues the credit.

Hard-working Americans and legal residents already are struggling to pay for their own health care. There is simply no excuse for the Federal government to force them to subsidize health care for illegal aliens through taxpayer-funded credits.

Socialists Crushed in First Round of French Parliamentary Election

Via Billy

France’s official socialist party looks set to be wiped out after a dismal showing in the country’s parliamentary elections.

The Parti Socialiste racked up just over 7% of the popular vote in preliminary voting on Sunday – a calamitous fall after five years of being France’s foremost political force.

The socialists were in government until just a few months ago under President Fran├žois Hollande, who by the end had approval ratings as low as 4%.

New Perspectives Show Comey Connived to Protect Obama at All Costs

Americans are sick and tired of the elites in the US getting away with crimes while average every day hard working Americans are held to a different set of rules.

The disgust with politicians in Washington who hold themselves to a different standard is boiling over. Last year during the Presidential campaign Americans at the Trump rallies screamed out ‘Drain the Swamp’ in reference to getting rid of the corruption in DC.

Vermont Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders gave former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton a difficult run in the 2016 primary, but the list of his recent endorsements reveals his political clout could be receding.

The senator has so far formally endorsed seven candidates for their respective offices since the November 2016 election, according to a historical analysis conducted by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Sanders formally endorsed Keith Ellison for chair of the Democratic National Committee, James Thompson for U.S. Representative, Tom Perriello for Governor, Jon Ossoff for U.S. Representative, Heath Mello for Omaha Mayor, Steve Zimmer and Imelda Padilla for Los Angeles School Board, as well as Rob Quist for US Representative.

Purchasing Our Own Demise.

Sometimes I would like to say screw the internet. Yes it's great for communication with people far away and commerce for finding those rare items or those thing only available from a vendor hundreds or even thousands of miles away. But it's not just killing the small local merchants who depend on walk in traffic, it's isolating us from our immediate neighborhoods and businesses.

I can't be the only one who wants to pick up and feel and examine an item before I buy it. Plus I like the ability and satisfaction of not only going to a store and getting what I want today but also of building relationships with small vendors with whom I share an interest.

For example over the last couple of years every single hobby shop in my city has closed its doors. Sure there are still places like Michael's and Hobby Lobby that are glorified big box stores that carry either very limited selection or none of those particular items you want because there is no volume or limited demand that don't meet their precious dollars of return per square foot of space requirements. They have no interest in getting to know their customers. Their attitude is buy what we offer at price we ask or get lost.

Must I disavow the Southern Baptists?

Via Iver

I was once a member of a Southern Baptist church. If this resolution passes, I will no longer consider myself a Southern Baptist, as the Southern Baptist Convention has been thoroughly cucked and is now officially an anti-nationalist and anti-American globalist institution.

Which "Christ" is that? Judeo-Christ or Anti-Christ? They're cloaking it with the scare quotes and the modifier "that violates the biblical teachings with respect to race, justice, and ordered liberty", but it is obvious that they are now globalists in service to the Prince of this world like so many of the other formerly Christian denominations.

The Alt-Right is not deceived. To the contrary, the Southern Baptists have embraced the wide and easy way in pursuit of the world's approval. It won't be long before they'll be featuring female pastors performing same-sex marriages before empty pews. Convergence always ends the same way.

Delta, Bank of America drop NYC theater sponsorships over Trump-like ‘Julius Caesar’

Via John

Delta Air Lines Inc. and Bank of America Corp. dropped their sponsorships of New York Public Theater on Sunday over a production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” that shows the main character, made to resemble Donald Trump, being assassinated.

“No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the airline said in a statement Sunday afternoon. “Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste.”

Hours later, Bank of American tweeted that it, too, was withdrawing its support, saying the interpretation was designed to “provoke and offend.”
