BLACK TUESDAY

Yes, voters were stupid enough to give them the House

Yes, voters were stupid enough to give them the House

If we were tired of winning, we’re going to get a respite. Possibly a long one.

Here’s why you shouldn’t pay much attention to my prognostications and speculations:

I thought Republicans would gain 5 to 6 seats in the Senate, gain a governor, net, lose no more than 18, probably not more than 15 seats in the House. I was really really wrong.  November 6 was Black Tuesday.

It was dismaying to lose races I thought we would win (Arizona, Nevada, Montana). Doubly dismaying to win narrowly races we should have won big (Texas a purple state?). Triply dismaying so many of the Dem candidates were such obvious dirtballs (Sinema, Tester, Gillum, Abrams.)

Even more dismaying we should do so poorly when the economy is roaring, peace with North Korea is in the offing.

Yes, the Dems have cheated their way to victory in many close races – but they shouldn’t have been close in the first place.  Have most voters – especially middle class white women in the suburbs – lost all judgment and all moral sense?

RED WAVE ON THE HORIZON

Surf’s Up!

Surf’s Up!

According to most published polls, Democrats have a 50-50 (or better) chance to win control of the House of Representatives, while Republican gains in the Senate likely will be minimal.

The signs on the ground, electoral history, and logic say something very different.

Thanks to early voting (walk-in and absentee), 35 to 40 percent of all votes in most states will be cast before election day.

According to polls, Senate races in Florida, Arizona, Indiana and Montana are nail biters. But Republicans are crushing Democrats in early voting in Florida, Arizona and (especially) in Indiana and Montana.  This is yuge, because in every election before this, Democrats “won” early voting, typically by large margins.

The other big sign is the phenomenon of the Trump rally. There has never been anything like this. The president is drawing enormous, enthusiastic crowds wherever he goes.  People who line up eight hours or more before a rally are highly likely to vote.  Zero, by contrast, can’t fill high school gyms in deep blue territory.

So here’s why polls differ from reality.

HALF-FULL REPORT 10/19/18

Jack Wheeler is traveling home from Israel today, so he asked me to fill in on the HFR.

This has been a great MAGA week. Things got off to a fast start Monday, got better as the week wore on.

For some reason, Fauxcahontas Warren thought Monday (10/15) was a good day to make public a DNA test that indicates maybe, between six and ten generations ago, she had an ancestor who was an American Indian, or Hispanic.

That would make Lieawatha between 1/64th and 1/1012th Native American, or Hispanic. At the 1/1012th number, Warren would be 99.999 percent white, less Native American (or Hispanic) than the average white person.

In almost as breathtaking a stupid as Fauxcahontas making her DNA test public, George Soros and other wealthy leftists financed a caravan of 4,000 Honduran “migrants” who planned to enter the U.S. illegally.

That's ending badly for the Dems.  But this HFR is just getting started -- let's go...

UNLOCKING SPYGATE

spy-gateWhat we’ve learned in the last few weeks about the conspiracy to frame President Trump should make us rethink much of what we thought we knew about it before.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to a meeting at the White House to gather information that could be used to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office, the New York Times “reported” Sept. 21.

The story was based on a memo written by disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

The “Rosenstein-McCabe feud dates back to angry standoff in front of Mueller,” said this Washington Post story Oct. 10.

The key takeaway from the WaPo article is that McCabe perceived Rosenstein as a threat,” noted ThunderStrzok.

Rosenstein won. Which is good, because McCabe is a very bad guy.  Spygate is being unlocked.  Here’s how.

HALF-FULL REPORT 09/28/18

believe-in-somethingJack Wheeler asked me to fill in for him on the HFR this week. What a week it’s been!

After yet another stunt by the despicables, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted, 11-10, this afternoon (9/28) to send to the Senate floor the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

There was to have been a cloture vote Monday, a confirmation vote Tuesday (10/2).

But late today, President Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update the file on Judge Kavanaugh. The investigation is to be limited to current allegations, and completed in less than a week.

The president issued the order because Sen. Jeff Flake requested it at the Judiciary Committee hearing today.

Flake caused hearts to flutter when he said he might vote against Kavanaugh unless there is another one week delay for the FBI to investigate. But this was largely kabuki.  Here’s what’s going on behind the curtain.

GRASSLEY’S PERJURY TRAP TODAY?

kavanaugh-hearing-insanityAmericans now view the GOP more favorably than they do Democrats, according to this Gallup poll.  Which, Gallup notes, hasn’t happened often:

“The Republican Party’s favorability rating for the last decade (averaged) 39%, compared with the Democratic Party’s 44%.”

 In most polls this year, more Democrats than Republicans have said they’re likely to vote in the midterm elections. But “voter enthusiasm” among Republicans is spiking, has “soared past” Dems in some battleground states.

“In some cases, we’re talking MAJOR gaps now, with the Rs on top,” says political analyst Larry Schweikart.

Pastor Bill Kent explains why: “We are willing to walk barefoot over broken glass and hot coals to vote GOP after this repulsive smear campaign by Democrats.”

Later today, we may know a lot more how this backlash will play out – if, as I suspect, Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley will spring a perjury trap on Chrissy Blasey Ford.

TRUST THE PLAN?

field-of-fightChristine Blasey Ford’s dubious, ever shifting charge she was molested by Judge Brian Kavanaugh when both were teenagers is getting blanket coverage from the Enemedia.

The Lying Swine play down the really important news this week -- President Trump’s order Monday (9/17) to declassify and “unredact” portions of documents pertaining to the FBI’s investigation of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Democrats in Congress and the Enemedia fear full disclosure will reveal the “investigation” was a sham, part of a plot to frame President Trump.

In which they were complicit. Exposure likely will lead to electoral disaster for Democrats, could result in jail time for lawmakers and journalists who knowingly took part in it.

Why am I confident of this?  It has a lot to do with that signature you see above.

THE DEMS HAVE SHOT THEIR BOLT

tool-of-the-loserLeftists rejoiced Tuesday (8/21) because it seemed Inspector Javert… er, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, was closing in on the evil Drumpf. Impeachment is back on the table.

On Tuesday, a jury in Alexandria Va. found Paul Manafort, the president’s former campaign manager, guilty of 8 of 18 counts of tax evasion and fraud.

Also on Tuesday, Michael Cohen, formerly Trump’s personal lawyer, plead guilty to eight counts of tax fraud.  It was announced within an hour of the Manafort verdict, even though Cohen’s plea bargain was signed last April 24.  Just a coincidence, right?

What’s most important about the simultaneously-timed Manafort conviction and the Cohen plea deal is they’ve happened during the dog days of August.  As per usual, leftists will grossly overplay their hand. Over the next few days these facts will dribble out:

HALF-FULL REPORT 07/20/18

angry-liberalsJack Wheeler is in the Arctic this week. He asked me to fill in on the HFR.

************ President Trump had a summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki Monday (7/16). Leftist heads exploded.

If meeting with Soviet/Russian leaders, saying nice things about them during summits is treason, then every president from FDR onward committed it.

************ Trump sought the summit to finalize a deal to end the civil war in Syria, I speculated in the HFR July 6. Putin also seems willing to abandon his support of the mullahs in Iran, and to help Trump free North Korea from Chinese influence.

The tell good deals are being made was the ear to ear grin on the face of Jon Huntsman, our ambassador to Russia, during his appearances on Fox News Sunday and Meet the Press the day before Trump and Putin met.

************ Leftists accuse adversaries of what they themselves have done. Their prolific use of the T-word may soon come back to haunt Brennan, Comey, Clapper et al.

Former intelligence officers Fiona Mikayes (Air Force/DIA), Bryan Dean Wright (CIA), and Kevin Shipp (CIA) say Brennan is the eminence gris behind efforts to insert “informants” into the Trump campaign, which began soon after.

They detect in the increasingly hysterical tweets of Brennan, Comey and Clapper the distinctive odor of flop sweat.

************ Members of the cabal had another sphincter tightening moment this week when Republican lawmakers said Lisa Page has been a very cooperative witness.

Page’s testimony “tends to confirm the suspicion that the Mueller probe is a cover-up operation to obscure the criminal use of counterintelligence capabilities to spy on a rival presidential campaign and then sabotage the presidency that resulted,” Thomas Lifson said.

************ Is Peter Strzok an agent for Iran? Did the mullahs blackmail Obama? If so, that would make sense of Zero’s puzzling behavior, and John Kerry’s panicky reaction to a threat from the mullahs to reveal all about Western collaborators.

MUELLER’S COUP HAS FAILED

peter-strzokAmericans got their first good look last week (7/12) at Peter Strzok, the FBI agent at the center of the cover up of Hillary’s email scandal and the plot to frame President Trump led by Robert Mueller.

Sharp questions from Reps. Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan, John Ratcliffe and Louis Gohmert triggered Strzok, who looked less like a victim of GOP persecution, more like a smug sociopath who tells preposterous lies.

That, and the content of Mueller’s indictments released the next day (7/13), are clear signals that Mueller’s Deep State coup attempt to overthrow an elected government of the United States has failed.  Read on…

TRUMP IS NORMAL – SWAMP THINGS ARE NOT

Why do Swamp Things criticize absolutely everything President Trump says or does, when it exposes them as shallow, dishonest, hypocritical jackasses?

Establishment elitists and NeverTrump fellow travellers got the vapors over what the president said at the NATO conference. Watch above – and smile -- as Trump utters the words that triggered them so.

It’s a bad idea for Germany to buy natural gas from Russia because it makes Germany vulnerable to blackmail, and because what Germany will pay for the gas could finance Russian aggression, the president said.  And it’s way past time for the 28 other NATO nations to bear their fair share of the common defense.

In what alternate universe must one dwell to think prodding NATO allies to spend more on defense, and depriving Russia of billions of euros of hard currency helps Putin?

HE CHOSE WISELY

Democrats, so demented with hate they are morphing into violent Nazi Fascists, have chosen poorly.  The President by contrast has chosen wisely.

It should be embarrassing to some social conservatives that they refuse to see this.

In hindsight, we can see why President Trump chose wisely for Kavanaugh over social conservative favorite Amy Coney Barrett.  Here’s why…

HALF-FULL REPORT 07/06/18

independence-day-2018Jack Wheeler is giving some lucky TTPers a tour of lovely Portugal today, so he asked me to fill in on the HFR.

No really big news broke this holiday week, but there were harbingers of big shoes soon to drop, starting Monday.

************

More than 20,000 Americans work for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. How many ICE agents do you think will vote for Democrats this year?

************

If President Trump were worried about Special Counsel Robert Mueller, would he be planning a summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin?

************

President Trump won’t announce his nominee for the Supreme Court until Monday, but the MSM, relying on the usual “anonymous sources,” say the frontrunners are District of Columbia Circuit Court Judge Brian Kavanaugh and 7th Circuit Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

************

Associate Deputy Attorney General Scott Schools, “the most important unknown person in D.C.,” will leave the Justice Department Monday. It isn’t clear whether he jumped, or was pushed.

************

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt resigned yesterday (7/5). leftists will hang his scalp on their lodgepole, go after other administration officials with renewed vigor.

Reading between the lines of Trump’s tweets, I get the impression there is some substance to leftist charges of ethics abuses.  “Within the agency, Scott has done an outstanding job.”

In terms of policy, Acting Director Andrew Wheeler is Pruitt on steroids. So leftist joy may be short lived.

TRUMP’S PATIENCE AND OURS

how-to-lose-the-battleWhat impresses me most about the very stable genius in the White House isn’t the brilliance and thoroughness of his strategic planning, his boldness in going where no political leader has gone before, or his determination to drain the swamp.

It’s Trump’s patience. He’s holding fire until as many Swamp Things as possible are in the kill zone, the cases against them are airtight, and their exposure will have the most effect on the midterm elections.

Many conservatives think we know more about what’s going on in FBI/DOJ than in fact we do. Some think they know more about that than President Trump does.

We don’t know what’s happening behind closed doors. All warfare is deception. The president can’t fool our enemies without also misleading us.

THE MORE FAKE NEWS LIES ABOUT TRUMP, THE MORE POPULAR HE BECOMES

Headline, May 7, 2018: Reuters/Ipsos Backs Away from Own Poll Showing Trump Surge

“Follow Stormy Daniels so you can stay informed of what’s important in our country,” satirically tweeted Roseanne Barr.

The Fake News Media gave more coverage last week to the claim of an aging pornslut that she had consensual sex with Donald Trump than they did to actual news.

Despite this, the president’s job approval rose. Which mystifies the Lying Swine.

Perhaps the most surprising result at the end of a week convulsed by scandal was a Rasmussen poll finding President Trump with a positive approval rating of 51 percent, the highest level since March of last year,” wrote Tina Nguyen in Vanity Fair.

Reuters, as you can see above, is so stunned by Trump’s approval gaining 10 points since last month they refused to publish their own poll.

Most Trump supporters think he did have a fling with Stormy, knew lawyer Michael Cohen paid her $130,000 to keep her mouth shut, this poll indicates. But we don’t care.

Why aren’t we as scandalized as leftie journos think we ought to be?

ISRAEL’S MOLES IN IRAN, IRAN’S MOLES IN DC, AND THE FALL OF THE MULLAH REGIME

iran-secret-nuke[This astonishingly insightful analysis of Jack Kelly needs to be read by your Congressman and Senators – please consider sending it to them –JW]

There was “nothing new” in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dramatic news conference Monday (4/30) in which he exposed Iran’s nuclear weapons program, say Obamunists and NeverTrump fellow travelers such as Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN).

In one way that’s true. Those who have been paying attention have known for years the mullahs were Hell-bent on obtaining nuclear weapons, that Obama’s Iran deal would do nothing to stop their pursuit of nukes or slow it down, almost certainly would accelerate it.

But that’s not what Obamunists and Corker – who turned the Senate’s treaty making power on its head to get the Iran deal through – told the American people.

By dismissing Netanyahu’s disclosures as, yawn, “nothing new,” Obamunists are telling us they are not the most easy to bamboozle dufuses in the history of humankind. They are, instead, bald-faced liars –  either the most corrupt cowards ever to head and staff a U.S. administration… or traitors.

Everything President Obama did during his eight years in office has harmed the United States. It is becoming ever more likely that this was not by accident.

HALF-FULL REPORT 04/27/18

north-south-shake-handsHave a napkin handy. The glass this week is filled to overflowing.

Democrats are tearing their hair out because we got very strong evidence yesterday that North and South Korea are burying the hatchet, the Norks will give up their nukes and ICBMs.

After CNN went to great lengths to give the credit for the historic meeting at Panmunjom between Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in to the Norks, South Korea’s foreign minister told Christiane Amanpour that “clearly credit goes to President Trump.”

If the Norks keep their word, this will be the greatest diplomatic triumph in modern American history, acknowledged Trump hater James Fallows.

Senate Dems tried to block the nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo, the key negotiator with the Norks, as Secretary of State, because they’d rather have Americans under the threat of a nuclear strike than permit President Trump a diplomatic triumph. They failed.

************ Possibly even more consequential news is the cultural revolution sparked by Kanye West and Chance the Rapper as they blaze a broad, smooth trail for blacks to follow as they walk away from the Democrat plantation.

“Big things are happening and eyes are being opened for the first time in decades,” President Trump tweeted today.

The muh Russia narrative suffered fatal blows. The DNC punched itself in the nuts trying to breathe life into the corpse. The end of the Mueller probe is imminent.

AFTER THE MCCABE APPETIZER, COMEY AND LYNCH ARE ON THE MENU

trump-tweets-041718President Trump’s tweets indicate the hammer soon will fall on former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey.

The potshots they took at each other this weekend suggest Lynch and Comey think so too.

“Slippery James Comey” is a “slimeball” who “committed many crimes,” will go down as “the WORST FBI Director in history, by far,” the president said in a tweetstorm Sunday (4/15), and again Monday.

Trump was responding to Comey’s criticisms of him in Comey’s book, in bookstores this week.

Reviews – even by lefties – have not been kind.

THE STORM COMMENCES

The first hammer dropped at 10 p.m. last Friday night (3/16). The responses to it have been enlightening.

The storm about to hit the Deep State

The storm about to hit the Deep State

Two days before former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe planned to retire with a full pension, Attorney General Jeff Sessions formally fired him. FBI Director Robert Wray “removed” McCabe as deputy director Jan. 29. He’s been on terminal leave since.

President Trump was delighted McCabe got the axe. But he didn’t swing it. McCabe was terminated on the recommendation of career professionals in DOJ and FBI who were appointed during the last two administrations, not Trump’s.

Which didn’t stop the Waste Stream Media from pushing the evil Drumpf is persecuting the poor FBI guy narrative.  Well, what alternative do they have?  The storm to hit the Deep State away has begun, and they know they’ll be swept away with it.

WHY TRUMP IS RIGHT ON TRADE

trump-tweet-030318Many conservative “intellectuals” responded to President Trump’s proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum with hyperbole, bromides and cliches, delivered in the tone of a professor lecturing a dense pupil. Here’s an egregious example by Ben Shapiro.

Humbug.

In The Wealth of Nations (1776), Adam Smith devastated the prevailing orthodoxy of mercantilism, which viewed international trade as zero sum. A nation gained only by screwing its trading partners.

We sing the praises of Adam Smith, but the Chinese are mercantilists. They screw all their trading partners, us especially.

Since the 1990s, our trade deals have been negotiated by people who (a) aren’t very smart, (b) know little about business, (c) don’t care what happens to blue collar workers, and (d) don’t like America very much.

Everyone else wants access to our market. Our trade negotiators hold four aces, but – until Trump – they’ve folded to bust hands.

The most egregious example is NAFTA. We had a $1.35 billion trade surplus with Mexico the year it was ratified. Since then we’ve run deficits totaling $1.069 trillion. What is it Mexico produces we can’t live without? How did we live without it before NAFTA?

DEMS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA SPEND A WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S

It’s entertainment even funnier than the movie – watching a lá Weekend at Bernies, Democrats and their Fake News propaganda machine struggling to prop up the corpse of their muh Russia narrative after its burial by Bob Mueller last Friday (2/16).

In his announcement of the indictment, Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein said clearly and succinctly what Special Counsel Robert Mueller tacitly admitted: Russians meddled in the 2016 election to disrupt, not to support a candidate; no American knowingly collaborated with them; Russian meddling did not affect the outcome of the election.

RIP, Russia collusion narrative.  In response, Dems and Fake Newsers spent last weekend at Bernie’s. One example:

The only thing more stunning than the scale of Russian interference uncovered… is the fact that an American president is taking no action to protect our country from an ongoing threat,” said former (Carter) Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Now you know why everyone on the 7th floor of Foggy Bottom in the Carter years called her “Secretary Half-Bright.”

THE RATS ARE GETTING CORNERED

rat-corneredIt’s fun to watch the rats scurry as the walls close in.

On Inauguration Day last year, January 20, 2017, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice emailed a lengthy memo to herself about a meeting in the Oval Office January 5th.

Ms. Rice sent the memo at 12:15 p.m., 15 minutes after Donald Trump had become president, at the last possible time her email could be included in Obama administration archives. And after anyone else in the Obama administration could have seen it.

Attending that meeting, she said, were President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and herself.

The topic was the Steele dossier and the FBI investigation of “collusion” between Team Trump and the Russians.

What it exposed was collusion between Comey’s FBI and the Obama White House to lie about Trump.

DEMS IN A PANIC

panic-attackPanic makes people stupid – especially if they aren’t too smart to begin with.

The hysterical, hyperbolic, hypocritical and often hilarious efforts of Democrats and the WSM (Waste Stream Media) to prevent publication of the Nunes Memo backfired, bigly.  Though old news to TTPers, this was the first time millions of Americans heard about FISAgate.

You’d think Dems/WSM would learn from experience. They haven’t. Now that the memo’s been published, Democrats say it isn’t true. Rep. Adam Schiff, ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has written a counter-memo.

BEEG mistake. There’s a mountain of evidence, still classified, that proves what Nunes said is true. By saying it isn’t, Democrats play into the hands of Republicans who want this evidence made public.

Last Friday’s HFR (2/02) outlined the batting order. Nunes leads off, followed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz bats cleanup.

I watch in slack-jawed admiration as a very stable genius and his allies choreograph release of evidence of the literally unbelievable corruption in his predecessor’s administration.

A SCANDAL OF DEMOCRATS

If any of these five scandals got half the attention Watergate did, each would be considered the worst in American history.

DEMS BEING SCHOOLED ON DACA IN THE ART OF THE DEAL

The VSG – Very Stable Genius – at work

The VSG – Very Stable Genius – at work

If you watched the opening of DACA negotiations Tuesday (1/09), you saw a master negotiator play a strong hand flawlessly.

Playing the role of an even-handed moderator earnestly seeking a deal, the president dominated the room. Breitbart was impressed. So were normally very critical MSM journalists.

Not bad for a senile moron who spends 17 hours a day watching the Gorilla Channel. Just by permitting the session to be covered by the news media, Trump slew the leftist narratives arising from Michael Wolff’s hilarious book and Yale Psychiatry Prof. Bandy Lee’s preposterous long distance diagnosis.

“Brilliant move by POTUS,” said Martha McCallum of Fox News. “In the middle of the Wolf onslaught he allows live coverage of him working the table with Dems/GOP on immigration. Thoughtful, policy proficient, and determined to get a deal.”

The president has framed the debate so that if there is a deal, he wins. If there isn’t, Democrats lose.

WHY WOULD FLYNN LIE?

sperry-trump-tweetsMy esteemed TTP colleague Michael Ledeen offered his explanation to this puzzle today: Nothing About Collusion.  I have a conjecture that might serve as an alternative.

For ‘tis a puzzle.  Why would LTG Michael Flynn lie to the FBI about telephone conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak that were not illegal, improper, or unusual?

As a career intelligence officer, Flynn had to know we were listening in on Kislyak’s phone calls. He ought to have assumed the FBI would listen to the intercepts, or read transcripts of them.

As in fact the FBI did, the Washington Post reported the day before Flynn's interview.

Since the FBI already knew what Flynn said to Kislyak, determined he’d done nothing wrong, why was the FBI interviewing him?

We may get answers to those questions – and much more – very soon.

ROY MOORE IS GOING TO WIN

Judge Roy Moore

Judge Roy Moore

The decision of Senate leaders to have the Senate Ethics Committee “investigate” the charge of sexual harassment against Sen. Al Franken is a blunder for which the good guys should make the bad guys pay dearly.

What’s to investigate? The photo (taken by Al’s brother) proves beyond a shadow of a doubt he felt up Leeanne Tweeden while she was sleeping. Franken admitted it, though he claims it was just innocent fun.

All there is to decide is if feeling up a sleeping woman is an offense grave enough to warrant expulsion from the Senate.

If it isn’t, the hypocrisy with regard to the treatment of Roy Moore is glaringly obvious.

If it is, the fact McConnell et al think the charge against Franken should be investigated before any action is taken against him offers Moore a clear line of attack/defense. Either way, Moore wins.

HALF-FULL REPORT 11/10/17

Saudi Arabia is shaking up the world. Among those most rattled are Iran, Islamist terrorists, DC swamp things, Democrats and Twitter.

The earthquake began last weekend when police arrested dozens of prominent Saudis – including 11 princes and 4 government ministers-- in an anti-corruption crackdown.

The biggest fish is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founder, whose personal fortune is estimated at $17 billion.

Alwaleed bin Talal is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, a client of the Podesta Group, and – bye the bye – the guy who paid Barack Obama’s tuition at Harvard.

The Saudis intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen at Riyadh Saturday (11/4). KSA’s foreign ministry blamed Iran, called this “an act of war.”

Aggressions by Hezbollah are tantamount to a declaration of war against Saudi Arabia, KSA’s Gulf Affairs minister said Tuesday (11/7).

Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged Paul Manafort and business partner Rick Gates Monday (10/30) with money laundering and failing to register as foreign agents.

Though the fact Manafort worked (briefly) for Trump led MSM reports, the charges stem from work Manafort did for Viktor Yanukovych, a former Ukrainian president who was a Kremlin stooge, between 2006 and 2015.

The indictment of Manafort and Gates is damning on their financial dealings, but it makes no mention of Trump, collusion or the campaign,” noted ABC White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.

Manafort’s indictment is “bad news for Trump,” the MSM said. The opposite is true.

To keep moonbat hopes alive, the Lying Swine grasp at this slender straw:

A CONVERGENCE OF SCANDALS

hillary-likes-moneyFor leftists, the fit is hitting the shan at an ever accelerating rate.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC “helped” pay for the controversial Steele dossier, the Washington Post reported Tuesday (10/25).

The WaPo has known this for at least a year. Why report it now?

Bear in mind the Post publishes major stories only if (a) they advance a leftist narrative, or (b) they’re doing damage control.

So why would Fusion GPS – and the WaPo – throw Hillary under the bus?  For a clue, read this NBC report from Monday (10/24).

HALF-FULL REPORT 10/20/17

russian-bribery-plotThe Hill newspaper broke Tuesday (10/17) what is, hands down, the worst political scandal in American history. So far, crickets from most of the rest of the MSM. But the frantic efforts of the Lying Swine to cover it up, and to distract attention from it, will fall apart soon.

After massive donations were made to the Clinton Foundation, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved the sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium reserves to Russia, Peter Schweizer of the Government Accountability Institute reported in 2015.

Now The Hill provides the sordid backstory:

************

What most of the MSM “reported” instead of the Uranium One scandal was the claim by Rep. Frederika Wilson (D-Fla) President Trump was insensitive when he telephoned the widow of Army Sgt. LaDavid Johnson, killed in Niger Oct. 4, to express his condolences.

Gen. John Kelly, one of whose sons was killed in Afghanistan, let her have it yesterday (10/19). Watch the whole thing. If your eyes are dry when you finish, you have a heart of stone, feces for brains, vote Democrat.

* * * *

The Russia collusion story shifted sharply away from the leftist narrative this week.

Officials of Fusion GPS took the Fifth Amendment Wednesday (10/18) rather than tell the House Intelligence Committee who paid them for the phony Steele dossier, which looks more and more like Russian disinformation.

After all these months, the only evidence of collusion with Russia is of Democrats colluding with Russia. It’s piling up.

New FBI information about corruption in a Clinton-approved uranium deal with Russia raises questions about Clinton’s actions after the FBI broke up a deep-cover Russian spy ring in 2010,” the Daily Caller reported today.

Why yes, Director James Comey did indeed draft a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton months before the investigation into her sending classified information on an insecure private server was completed, the FBI has confirmed.

HALF-FULL REPORT 10/13/17

Iran isn’t complying with the terms of the nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated with the mullahs, President Trump said today (10/13). He laid out a new strategy to make certain the “radical regime” never acquires nuclear weapons.

The president’s speech was nuanced and masterful. Even McCain liked it.

************

President Trump issued an executive order yesterday (10/12) to permit people to buy health insurance across state lines. Rand Paul explains here why this is a big deal.

Trump also will end subsidies to health insurance companies. The subsidies are expensive, and illegal.

Earlier, Trump overturned Obama’s contraception mandate. He’s just begun to dismantle Zero’s pride and joy, the president tweeted today.

Harvey Weinstein was fired Sunday (10/8) from the company he and his brother founded, accelerating his startling plunge from one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood and most influential Democrat contributors nationally to pariah.

Catalonian independence isn’t working out the way the Russians and George Soros hoped.

The NFL inched closer to capitulation as the most epic blunder in the history of marketing bled into its third week.

It’s difficult to overstate how much harm the Harvey Weinstein scandal does to President Trump’s enemies, and ours.

HALF-FULL REPORT 10/06/17

It wasn’t the worst mass shooting in American history. But what happened in Las Vegas last Sunday night (10/1) may have been the domestic equivalent of 9/11.

Or the worst Islamist terror attack since then.

Just one shooter – Stephen Paddock, 64 – killed 58 people attending a country music festival, injured 489 more.

But just one shooter doesn’t mean no conspiracy.

We presume he must have had help,” Clark County (Las Vegas) Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Wednesday (10/5).

************

When leftists call conservatives “haters,” they’re projecting.

She’s “not even sympathetic” to the shooting victims because “country music fans often are Republican gun toters,” said Hayley Geftman-Gold, a vice president in the legal department at CBS, on her Facebook page.

CBS, to its credit, promptly fired Geftman-Gold. This sleaze bitch should be fired too.

************

Also last Sunday, a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” stabbed two young women to death at the train station in Marseilles, France.

In Edmonton, Alberta the night before, a man drove a white Chevrolet Malibu into a police barricade outside the stadium where the Edmonton Eskimos play, striking a police officer.

Both “lone wolves” were known wolves.

************

Operation Katrina began last Friday (9/29) when San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz blamed President Trump for SNAFUs in providing aid to Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria.

************

The most epic blunder in the history of marketing bled into its second week, with the NFL trying – and failing – to find a way to declare victory while surrendering.

************

The New York Times outed big shot Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein Wednesday (10/5) as a serial sexual predator, embarrassing Democrats generally, the Clintons and the Obamas in particular.

TRUMP SUCKERS THE NFL TO GO FULL KAEPERNICK

turn-off-the-nflI live in Pittsburgh.  You can imagine the contempt I feel for the Steelers right now and their execrable coach.  But I also love the way Trump is playing them, and the entire Leftie cabal, like a fiddle.

Coach Mike Tomlin thought he’d found a way around the dilemma the NFL created for teams with its knee jerk reaction to remarks President Trump made Friday night (9/22).  Tomlin hadn’t.  Same with scores of players on other teams.

Isn’t it amazing how easily the president goads adversaries into cutting their own throats? He baits the hook, they snap at it like trout.

With a few remarks and a couple of tweets, he triggered an indefensible “Full Kaepernick” PC response, for which Social Justice Warriors in the NFL will pay dearly.  Yet that’s only half of Trump’s two-fer here.

Often, the president tweets or speechifies provocatively to make the Lying Swine chase rabbits. Was there something he wanted to divert their attention from?  Could it be it was “the Rod from God”?

THE ART OF THE PRESIDENT’S DEALS

art-of-president-dealsRelax. Calm yourselves. Things are going lots better than President Trump’s enemies – and some who claim to be his friends – say they are.

Read and watch President Trump’s speech to the UN General Assembly yesterday (9/19), up on To The Point today. No president before him has told so many truths so directly to pompous jerks who needed to hear them. This president didn’t kiss ass. He kicked it.

His UN speech is the clearest statement of MAGA Mr. Trump has yet made. This is not a president who has “flipped” to Democrats, or is being bamboozled by them.

Nor is this a president who is intimidated by, or being drugged by “globalists” on the White House staff.

This is a president who is clearly in charge, who knows what he wants to do, is doing it.

Mr. Trump revels in deal making, which involves give and take. The key to success is to give up what is unimportant to you to get things you really want.

A REQUEST FOR PATIENCE

patience-grasshopperIf Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller were wearing waders and carrying a rod and reel, he couldn’t signal more clearly he’s on a fishing expedition. Every lawyer on his staff contributed to Dems. He’s said to be looking into things that have nothing to do with the election, employing Gestapo tactics.

Meanwhile, Robert Wray was confirmed as FBI director Aug. 1. I haven’t heard a peep from him since. Perhaps he’s still hanging pictures in his office, finding his way to the rest room and the cafeteria. I’m pretty sure he’s doing something. But I’ve no idea what it is.

Many conservatives want Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired, because he hasn’t indicted Hillary or fired Mueller yet. I think haven’t figured out the Trump-Sessions feud was theater; that the president wouldn’t have gone through that charade without some purpose in mind.

Which is why this is a request for patience.
