Another Major Trump Associate Disappoints Donald By Heaping Strong Praise On Mueller, While DESTROYING Trump's "Witch Hunt" BS



We all remember the prominent lawyer, with the white handlebar mustache, Ty Cobb, who, not long ago, was still still a member of the Trump Legal Team.

Well, Mr Cobb, in an interview with ABC News, just said this: "I think Bob Mueller's an American hero. I've known him for 30 years as a prosecutor and a friend. And I think the world of Bob Mueller. He is a very deliberate guy. But he's also a class act. And a very justice-oriented person." Mr Cobb also strongly stated, that the Mueller investigation "is NO Witch Hunt".

BTW, besides Witch Hunt, Trump's talk of Mueller (who's actually a Republican) supposedly having "angry Democrats" on his team is more Trump BS, for 2 REASONS. 1. Under the law, Mr Mueller ISN"T PERMITTED to ask what the political affiliation (if any) is of those he hires, or adds to his staff. 2. The political preference of Justice Department, or FBI, investigators and prosecutors, is of little importance, anyway, because THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT like politicians in Congress, their loyalty is to the law they're sworn to uphold, so they have ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE ON them to follow the leadership of any political party, UNLIKE members of Congress who usually must follow the policies of the party they happen to belong to. But Donald Trump has made the CALCULATION that most Americans simply ARE NOT BRIGHT ENOUGH to be able to GRASP such a Basic, but Critically IMPORTANT DISTINCTION. (Donald always assumes folks are stupid.)

Even as a Democrat, who CAN'T STAND Trump, I wouldn't worry if EVERY ONE of Mueller's People was a REPUBLICAN, because if members of the Mueller team uncovered CRIMES by Trump, if ANYTHING, such Republican investigators and prosecutors would probably tend to want to COME DOWN on Trump EVEN HARDER for being a 2nd Republican President who's DISGRACED the party they belong to.

As for the President, and loyal ASS KISSERS of his, such as Sean Hannity, PISSING and MOANING that House Democrat investigations of Trump, that have JUST BEGUN, are going too far, Trump has NO ONE to blame but himself for these probes, because Donald's UNETHICAL and SUSPICIOUS behavior since being SWORN IN, in January 2017, basically DEMANDS that he be investigated to make sure that POTUS #45 isn't allowing the Public Interest to TAKE A BACK SEAT, in FAVOR of GREATER PROFITS for the Trumps.

Because, from the beginning, Trump has been MORE SECRETIVE than Tricky Dick Nixon, by Donald REFUSING to release his Tax Returns, even though Richard Nixon, WHILE he was President, RELEASED his TAX RETURNS even though Nixon was UNDER IRS AUDIT while he did that. Because all of us ARE the OWNERS of our Tax INFORMATION, and CAN RELEASE it, Anytime, EVEN if we are UNDER IRS AUDIT.

But folks, what's MUCH WORSE than Trump SNUBBING the Tradition of every POTUS, since the EARLY 70s, MAKING PUBLIC his Tax Info, is that UNLIKE Every Wealthy President of the PAST Who owned MAJOR Businesses, Trump REFUSED to DIVEST his Business Interests, and Put the PROCEEDS from them in a BLIND TRUST, which EXPERTS on ETHICS say is the 1 WAY to be SURE that NO CONFLICT of INTERESTS can OCCUR, so that Presidential Decisions are ONLY BASED on what's BEST for America, and NEVER BASED on a President being CONCERNED about the effects he could see on his business interests, if he goes ahead with certain choices he was considering.

Early in Donald Trump's Presidency, the head of America's Office of Government Ethics, repeatedly implored the new President to divest himself of his business interests, which was, and still is, a much needed move, especially since the Trump Organization is reputed to have about 500 separate businesses, across the world. When Trump still refused, that government ethics officer resigned his job in disgust.

But to try to smooth the waters, a little bit, Mr Trump had a woman lawyer give a presentation to the press, in which she relayed Donald Trump's promise, that during the entire time that he would be in office, as President, neither he, nor the other Trumps, would engage in ANY NEW business deals in foreign countries. But of course, as is always the case with Donald, that statement from him, that the lady lawyer passed on to the press, has TURNED to be just ONE MORE Trump LIE.

So folks, it's LITERALLY Trump's OWN UNETHICAL and SUSPICIOUS moves, and choices, as President, which have PLACED a DUTY on the Democrats to STUDY EVERY bit of Trump's Business Interests so the American people can KNOW if Trump's insistence on being LESS OPEN with the public than EVEN DISGRACED President Nixon was, may MEAN that Trump is a man who conducts his Presidency MORE for the BENEFIT of the Trumps, THAN FOR the GOOD of our COUNTRY!

On Monday, Anon talked about a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC poll which showed Trump's approval level of 46% matching that 46% level of the popular vote that Donald got in 2016. But what Anon DID NOT mention was that the exact same poll he was quoting, asked people about their preference between re-electing Trump or electing a nameless generic Democrat in 2020, and the result had a generic Democrat BEATING Trump by 48% to 41%.

But today things look CONSIDERABLY WORSE for Donald because UNLIKE the Poll that Anon was QUOTING Monday, today's NEWLY Released Quinnipiac Poll was CONDUCTED AFTER Michael Cohen's televised testimony. And the results are AWFUL for Donald!

When asked who they believe more President Trump or Michael Cohen the score was:

35% Believe the President MORE and 50% Believe Cohen MORE.
Also 64% Believe Trump Committed Crimes before his Presidency began.

And in another bit of news, today, the President, in briefly making a few comments on TV, to journalists, quickly interjected "This Witch Hunt continues", so he AGAIN used that FALSE Description, which everyone but the most hardcore Trump supporters is getting sick of. Donald ONCE AGAIN, proved the POINT that he's about the only Politician on the national scene, WHO KEEPS REPEATING a Lie, LONG AFTER it's been thoroughly DEBUNKED. Even a former member of Trump's legal Team, Ty Cobb has DEBUNKED Donald's use of "With Hunt". And Attorney General Barr, along with Chris Christie, BOTH call Trump's "Witch Hunt", NONSENSE.

It's SIMPLY STUNNING, that as Shepard Smith said, a while back: "It's CRAZY, just CRAZY, the way President Trump comes out, every day, and REPEATS the SAME ridiculous LIES!"

Yup, Donald SURE LOVES to keep INSULTING the INTELLIGENCE of people, but SADLY, judging by the way that Trump's LIE INFESTED C-PAC Rant THRILLED THEM, Poor Anon and Skyhawk AREN'T sharp ENOUGH to KNOW that Donald ROUTINELY INSULTS the INTELLIGENCE of people who ACTUALLY HAVE SOME!

But fortunately, as this BRAND NEW Quinnipiac Poll indicates, Trump's constantly REPEATED bullshit, is really starting to WEAR THIN with Americans of AVERAGE, or Higher, Intelligence.

I'm glad that you're STILL basing all of your hopes & expectations on polls, LovesWomenFrenching! Trump will NEVER beat Hillary, right?

Actually, Hillary knows that she'd lose FAR WORSE to Trump in a 2020 re-match, which is why she's opted not to challenge him next year. But other Democrats are wanting that opportunity. In some of the early polls, Kamala Harris is running third behind the party's two old white guys: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders - both of whom have bases considered to be shallow. For Kamala Harris, as an African American child of immigrants (from Jamaica and India), she'll no doubt get support from those black Democrats who didn't turn out in 2016 for Mrs. Clinton. Bernie Sanders’ base continues to consist of ultra-liberal white progressives, while Joe Biden is the establishment candidate (who hasn’t even said yet whether or not he’s running.)

Looking ahead, let’s say that these three emerge from the early primaries ahead of the rest of the pack and that Harris looks especially strong because California and the southern states vote in early March, which should give her a boost. Meanwhile, Sanders may have to duke it out with Elizabeth Warren in New Hampshire because they both appeal to the same voters. A recent national NBC-Wall Street Journal poll found that being a “socialist” and “over 75” were the two characteristics respondents identified as least desirable in a presidential candidate. But Sanders has a devoted core following, which is probably larger than Warren’s.

After the early primaries, Sanders & Harris will probably lead the delegate count. In third-place, it could be Biden, Beto, Booker, Sherrod Brown, or possibly even Amy Klobuchar. This third-place candidate, while no conservative, will be perceived as far more moderate than either Sanders or Harris (the exception being far-left lib Senator Sherrod Brown.)

Here the nomination rules used by the Democrats become important. Unlike the Republicans, the Democrats don’t have any winner-take-all-primaries; delegates are allocated proportionally to votes, except that candidates who receive less than 15 percent of the vote get no delegates. The 15-percent threshold will knock out many poorly performing candidates, but the proportionality rule opens up the possibility of a contested convention in a fragmented field with no single dominant figure.

A contested convention is also more likely because of the new rules about superdelegates, who are barred from voting on the first ballot, though they can vote on later ones. As a result, the superdelegates can no longer give a first-ballot victory to a candidate who comes out of the primaries just short of a majority with pledged delegates alone.

So let’s now imagine what happens in our three-way race if Harris, Sanders, and the 3rd-place candidate (Biden/Beto/Booker/Brown/Klobuchar) emerge as the top three, but none holds a majority, which forces the convention to go to a second ballot. If any one of these candidates is close to a majority, the superdelegates voting on the second ballot will decide the nomination.

If it's close, and the superdelegates give the nomination to Harris or somebody other than Bernie, Senator Sanders and his supporters may claim the party has cheated him a second time and the outcome is illegitimate — a nightmare for Democrats, who want to go into the general election united.

But before any second-ballot bargaining, Harris likely becomes the pivotal player because the other choices and Sanders are probably ideologically incompatible. In addition, while Sanders could offer Harris the vice presidency, Sanders accepting the vice presidency on a Harris ticket seems implausible. So a deal between Harris and one of the others is far more likely, with the question of who takes the top spot depending partly on their relative position in the delegate count.

If Joe Biden leads the delegate count, Harris may agree to be his vice president; if Biden is behind, he may just throw his support to Harris and step aside to stop Sanders, with one of the others getting the vice-presidential nod, although a ticket with both Harris and Corey Booker, or even Harris with another woman, seems unlikely.

It’s actually way too early to engage in this kind of speculation, and no matter WHO ends up winning the nomination, he or she will almost certainly go down in flames against President Trump. The Democrats are fragmented and lurching hard to the left, exactly as they were in 1972. And 1972 was NOT a good year for Democrats!

The Democratic Party's national committee has announced that it is refusing to allow the FOX News Channel to televise any of its presidential candidate debates, according to the Washington Post.

DNC Chair Tom Perez alleges that FOX is simply too close to the Donald Trump White House. Sean Hannity works for FOX. And FNC news hosts Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, Shannon Bream, and Chris Wallace are all far more objective than their counterparts at OTHER major media outlets. And while liberal Trump critic Shep Smith may also be employed at FOX, that network remains hugely unpopular with the anti-Trump left, which prefers networks like CNN, where hosts like Jake Tapper, Brian Stelter, Chris Cuomo, and Don Lemon regularly mix their liberal opinions with the news.

Just a few examples of acknowledged non-FOX-related media bias:

NBC sat on evidence exonerating Justice Brett Kavanaugh, discrediting Michael Avenatti and his clients’ accusations.
CBS published false documents to smear President George W. Bush.
CNN fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton before a primary debate.
ABC helped Democrats launch their “war on women” campaign strategy in 2012.
CNN attacked Mitt Romney during a debate when he said true things about the Benghazi terror attack.

And those are just scratching the surface. The media and the Democratic Party regularly collude on political stories so frequently as to be considered a crisis.

NBC’s Chuck Todd recently demonstrated his legendary extreme bias on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” show. He falsely claimed Rep. Jim Jordan was sharing opinion, not facts, when he accurately discussed Michael Cohen’s testimony that he’d never been to Prague — a central claim of a discredited dossier, secretly funded by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, secretly fed to media outlets and intelligence agencies, and used to undermine the Trump administration for more than two years.

But when Sen. Mark Warner claimed there was evidence of collusion with Russia, Todd didn’t push back in ANY way, despite the complete lack of evidence. Last year, CNN's Jake Tapper, a gun control advocate, hosted a rally that spun up a mob against gun rights and Dana Loesch while letting a corrupt sheriff off the hook.

The Democratic National Committee, which regularly picks which news stories to run, also frames those stories, writes & even edits what nearly ALL of the other major media outlets put on the air, has every right to use its media-enabled power against FOX, which tends to be less aligned with Democrats. It makes perfect sense that the DNC would only want friends and ideological allies to question them in debates, particularly when they only need to ostracize one media outlet to accomplish that.

The question is, WHY do establishment Republicans allow G.O.P. conservatives to regularly be treated like second-class citizens? WHY sit back and lamely accept the false narrative that FOX is a crazy right-wing propaganda network while the other media outlets are honest/valid news sources?

Which mainstream media outlets (NBC, CBS, ABC — not to mention the cartoonishly biased MSNBC and CNN) — are NOT severely biased against Republicans and their domestic policy goals?

The Washington Post is CLEARLY NOT neutral, based on its efforts to utterly destroy the life and reputation of Brett Kavanaugh, as witnessed last summer - assuming that nobody figured that out in the previous five decades. One recent example being that newspaper's smear of a Christian judge, which reads as if it were lifted directly from the public relations arm of the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center.

In what sense is The New York Times not ALSO considered to be the propaganda arm of the Democratic National Committee? So WHY do Republicans allow their declared enemies to set the terms of their own debates?

Instead, the G.O.P. plays a big game of PRETEND, dutifully going on shows hosted by activists like Chuck Todd and former Bill Clinton spokesman George Stephanopolous — two hosts who are far, far, far less impartial than Baier and Wallace.

The excuse the DNC is using to boycott FOX is a story spun by Jane Mayer, a woman known at least as much for her sloppy journalism as for her far-left activism. She was one of the bylines on a journalistically indefensible smears of Kavanaugh before his confirmation. The first “conservative” Mayer quoted to attack FOX News was Bill Kristol. I stopped reading when the second alleged “conservative” was the Post’s Jennifer Rubin.

The liberal activists at other networks and media outlets lapped up Mayer’s story. In response to the DNC boycotting FOX, CNN’s anti-Republican media analyst Brian Stelter wrote, “Yes, FOX has a news division. But Fox is mostly defined by its opinion division, where hosts and guests demonize Democrats from morning til night.”

THIS from the network that has for years obsessively pushed its opinion programming, including an insane conspiracy of treasonous collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 election. This from the people who got in a bit of trouble when one of their employees was caught passing debate questions to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 primary.

In any case, one of the reasons Trump successfully won the presidency was that he declined to play the game, treating the media as if they weren’t biased and facing massive credibility problems. Do OTHER Republicans enjoy being treated like second-class citizens? Do they think they must accept it?

What are they going to do going forward? The media AREN'T getting better. They’re getting WORSE. And the alliance between Democrats and the media grows stronger every day. Is this of interest to establishment Republicans?

It's time for Republicans to acknowledge that nearly all of the major media outlets view Republicans as their political enemies. Given the media response to Democrats blacklisting the FOX News Channel, the precedent has now been set that it's perfectly acceptable for Republicans to do the SAME THING with liberal media outlets who show no desire to honestly and fairly moderate political debates, much less intra-party debates or discussions that include Republican officials and the views they hold.

The good and patriotic people of the heartland living, working, and paying taxes in flyover country are very aware of what the left wing extremists are doing. They are aware that the Democrats have completely forgotten about them in the socialist's progressives frenzied desire to unseat Trump.

Why should anyone vote for these fools anymore? Their core beliefs seem to be open borders, confiscatory gun control, abortion to the day of delivery, and perhaps beyond, politically based witch hunt investigations without end, free everything for everyone, including those who don't care to work, and on, and on. And the new face of the Democrat party and media darlings are Ms. Omar, Ms Tlaib, and AOC...the "terrible trio"

It is not a winning formula for the left wing nutters, but they are apparently too blindly stupid to realize it.

Pelosi's ambiguous excuse about specifically excluding Ms Omar.

"And that's what we're working on — something that is one resolution addressing these forms of hatred, not mentioning her name, because it's not about her. It's about these forms of hatred."

She previously had said that Omar's remarks were not "intentionally anti-Semitic".

So the latest is that Shrillary Clinton is not going to run in 2020. I trust her about as far as I could throw her. But it is consistent with her history insofar as the fact that the last opportunity she had to take on an incumbent back in 2004 (George W. Bush), she passed on it.

It will be fun though to see all of these dems who are in the running making fools of themselves in not only seeking to undermine a popular, successful President, but also attempting to out-pander each other in earning the nomination.

My guess is that when all is said and done it will be Joe Biden challenging the POTUS. But you could bet your bottom dollar that he will be bullied and harassed every step of the way should he attempt to drift to the center, as the far left crazies of the party such as AOC, Bernie, Kamela Harris, Cory 'Spartacus' Booker, Elizabeth 'Pocahantas' Warren, and Amy Klobashar will not tolerate any compromise from their socialist platform. What is really disturbing is that Bernie Sanders, who stood out like a sore thumb in 2016 is now just another one of the freaks in the democrat circus tent. Shows you how hopelessly far left this party has gone.

Fasten your seatbelts folks. It is going to be a wild ride. Heck, if all else fails the dems could always bring out the gimp ('Pulp Fiction' reference) in having Mad Maxine Waters froth from the mouth. Or they could always bring in Michelle Ma belle Obama to rally the troops. But all kidding aside as Anon stated this race has landslide written all over it a la 1972 when Nixon trounced McGovern or 1984 when Reagan destroyed Mondale.

The Dems Will Lose the House in 2020

Anti-Semitism, socialism, and giving the vote to illegal immigrants is a losing agenda.

If you find it difficult to grasp how a handful of leftwing extremists managed to win last week’s battle with the nominal leadership of the Democratic Party over a House resolution originally written to condemn anti-Semitism, Margaret Thatcher explained the phenomenon four decades ago: “The one thing about leftwing politicians is that they are always fanatical. They never let go. It’s their religion.” She was describing how the Labour Party had been destroyed from within by a small minority of radicals. Thatcher eventually exploited this process, led the Conservative Party to victory over Labour, and became Prime Minister for eleven years.

The Republicans will deliver a similarly humiliating defeat to House Democrats in 2020 if its alleged leaders fail to rein in their own cadre of fanatical leftists, the core of which consists of recently elected social justice warriors Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Rohit Khanna, Raul Grijalva, and Pramila Jayapal. But the internecine fight that preceded the cowardly revision of the anti-Semitism resolution into a denunciation of generic bigotry suggests that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer may not hold enough sway over their own caucus to prevent it from self-destructing.

Before their epic defeat in 1994, the Democrats held the House majority for no fewer than four decades. Yet, after 12 years in the wilderness, they clearly had learned nothing. After finally winning it back again in 2006, their irresponsible antics condemned them to the minority after only four years. If they pursue their current agenda for the next 18 months, they will be in the minority again after only two years. Not only can they not muster a majority to condemn anti-Semitism, their most visible members are unabashedly embracing socialism, and the first piece of major legislation, H.R.1, literally gives illegal immigrants the vote.

The Democrat majority jammed that bill, ironically titled “For the People Act of 2019,” through last Friday. At a time when the voters say immigration is the most important issue facing the nation, this pernicious bill actually loosens restrictions on voting by illegal aliens. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996(theoretically) prohibits noncitizens from voting in federal elections, but H.R.1 permits them to vote in local contests such as school board elections. The GOP attempted to amend the bill so that only U.S. citizens can vote. The Democrats rejected this, of course, as Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) tweeted:

Today I offered a motion to recommit #HR1 reaffirming that only US citizens should have the right to vote. Dems rejected it. Next time you go to the ballot box, keep that in mind. The future of their party is in cities like San Fran, where illegals can vote. Let that sink in.

It goes without saying that H.R.1 is a classic Democrat power grab that attempts to usurp the authority of the states to regulate the voter registration process. It would vitiate the accuracy of registration rolls by automatically registering anyone who acquires a driver’s license, prevent election officials from verifying voter eligibility, and render state voter ID laws null and void. H.R.1 also takes the power to draw congressional districts away from the states, and requires inclusion of illegal aliens in all redistricting plans. Moreover, it violates the 1st Amendment so brazenly that even the American Civil Liberties Union bestirred itself:

The American Civil Liberties Union, on behalf of its 3 million members, supporters and activists, opposes H.R.1.… We strongly urge the Rules Committee to allow floor amendments that would mitigate our concerns with the provisions that unconstitutionally infringe the freedoms of speech and association.

Having thus used H.R.1 to unconstitutionally seize control over our elections, and presumably using that power to create a permanent majority in Congress as well as a series of compliant presidents, then the Democrats would get down to implementing their socialist agenda in earnest. First on the list will, of course, be the single-payer health care system for which they have yearned for so long. Dubbed “Medicare for All,” it will eliminate all private and employer health plans, and come with an annual price tag of $3.3 trillion. It will allegedly save us money pursuant to “lower administrative costs.” Yet even the Washington Post confesses:

The public piece of the American health-care system has not proven itself to be particularly cost-efficient. On a per capita basis, U.S. government health programs alone spend more than Canada, Australia, France and Britain… expanding Medicare to all would not automatically result in a radically more efficient health-care system.

Not coincidentally the latest version of this pie-in-the-sky plan was introduced in late February by one of the above-named Social Justice Warriors, Pramila Jayapal. It boasts 100 Democrat co-sponsors, and a number of Democratic presidential candidates have embraced the plan, including Senators Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren. The only Democrat who has shown reticence about a full-throated endorsement is Amy Klobuchar, who describes Medicare for All as an “aspiration” rather than an add-water-and-stir cure for what ails U.S. health care. This is also how she talks about the absurd “Green New Deal.”

This brings us back to our six Social Justice Warriors. The Green New Deal is not, as most people seem to think, a plan conceived by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her staff to save the planet. It is, in fact, a program concocted by the Justice Democrats, the main PAC that supported the divine AOC and the other five SJWs listed above. One of its founders was none other than Saikat Chakrabarti, AOC’s chief of staff, who is facing scrutiny by the Federal Election Commission pursuant to a lot of “dark money” that has been sloshing around between the Justice Democrats PAC and a Chakrabarti-controlled LLC called Brand New Congress.

Republicans will welcome confirmation that AOC et al., who have been so vocal about the political influence of “the Jewish lobby,” are just a new generation of Democrat grifters. That revelation will be considerably less satisfying to Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the party’s leadership. In 2020 the GOP will target 50 to 60 seats held by Democrats in purple districts they narrowly won during the last two cycles. Most of those seats will flip after AOC and her fellow travelers drag the party to the far left. The voters will associate the Democrats with anti-Semitism, socialism, and illegal immigration, and they will lose the House majority again.
