The media is continuing their unfounded attacks on President Trump, and true to form, the GOP is folding in the face of pressure.
Republicans in Congress are increasingly dispirited over the chaos surrounding Donald Trump, with several saying the nonstop revelations are imperiling their legislative agenda and the top Senate Republican signaling he’d go his own way on some of the president’s top priorities.
What legislative agenda? You assholes have done nothing – nothing – since January, and you expect us to support you?
Those concerns mounted after news broke Tuesday evening that Trump asked James Comey to close the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
That’s bullshit and fake f**king news. Comey’s memo said nothing about Trump asking him to close the Flynn investigation. “I hope you can let this go,” if Trump even said that – no one has seen the memo yet – can be interpreted many ways, but Trump never specifically asked to have the investigation shut down. It’s an out and out lie.
Comey wrote a memo about the conversation immediately after it occurred in February. Democrats said Trump’s request amounted to obstruction of justice while Republicans demanded information from the administration.
Really? A self-serving memo no one has even seen is now evidence of a crime? I must have missed the day they taught that in the police academy.
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’s prepared to block Trump on many of his proposed budget cuts and won’t support major tax cuts that add to the deficit. Nor would he commit to building Trump’s border wall.
Wow, there’s a shock. McConnell and Paul Ryan are despicable pieces of human filth, and their continuous Trump obstruction will lead to their demise in 2018. The GOP will lose the House next year, because they have given people nothing to vote for. No agenda, no accomplishments, nothing.
By reading his tweets, one would think Donald Trump is the greatest media troll of all time. The man posts comments solely to drive the MSM insane – well, more so – and while he is arguably a master troller, Trump does have one equal.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed any secrets onto Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week and that he could prove it.
Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of Trump’s meeting with Lavrov over to U.S. lawmakers if that would help reassure them.
Obviously I’m no fan of Putin, but this is a work of brilliance. Not only is the Russian strongman trolling the media, but he’s also trolling the Democrat snowflakes shrieking about the latest “impeachable offense.” Bravo, Vladimir. Bravo.
After Obama, I don’t expect much from presidents anymore. They’ll disappoint me, break promises, and outright lie, so when a POTUS goes out of his way to do the little things, I am appreciative. Donald Trump gives me that.
President Trump announced Monday that he’ll light the White House blue to honor police officers for Monday’s Peace Officer Memorial Day.
The president signed a proclamation Monday declaring the day “Peace Officer Memorial Day” and the upcoming week “Police Week.” At the signing ceremony, Trump said that he would also request that American flags fly at half-mast to memorialize fallen officers.
“During Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, we honor the men and women of law enforcement who have been killed or disabled in the course of serving our communities. Police officers are the thin blue line whose sacrifices protect and serve us every day, and we pledge to support them as they risk their lives to safeguard ours,” Trump said in the text of the proclamation.
A president who appreciates police officers. What a concept.
Sources claim President Trump is considering axing many of his top advisers, including the feckless RINO Reince Priebus. This is the best news I’ve heard all month.
At the urging of longtime friends and outside advisers, most of whom he consults after dark, President Trump is considering a “huge reboot” that could take out everyone from Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon, to counsel Don McGahn and press secretary Sean Spicer.
If true, I wholeheartedly support this decision. Priebus is a snake, Bannon is an ignoramus, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a much better choice for press secretary.
In a move which has been expected for weeks, President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey yesterday. Naturally, leftists are raging over the move, despite the fact they vehemently wanted Comey fired immediately after the 2016 election.
“The president has accepted the recommendation of the attorney general and the deputy attorney general regarding the dismissal of the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters in the briefing room.
The White House said that Trump “acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
But wait, don’t unleash your joygasm quite yet. There’s more…
Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign team was quick to denounce President Trump’s Tuesday firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Campaign manager Robby Mook said the move “terrifies” him.
You should be terrified, Robby. Justice is comin’, and Hell’s comin’ with it.

An American citizen who was imprisoned in Egypt for three years has been released after pressure was applied by the Trump administration.
An Egyptian American charity worker who was imprisoned in Cairo for three years and became the global face of Egypt’s brutal crackdown on civil society returned home to the United States after the Trump administration quietly negotiated her release.
President Trump and his aides worked for several weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to secure the freedom of Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian, and four other humanitarian workers. Trump dispatched a U.S. government aircraft to Cairo to bring Hijazi and her family to Washington.
The Washington Post, ever the liberal stalwart, added, “The Obama administration unsuccessfully pressed Sissi’s government for their release..” Uh huh. I’m sure Obama fought tooth and nail to get our citizens released. /sarcasm
The couple and their co-workers had been incarcerated since May 1, 2014, on child abuse and trafficking charges that were widely dismissed by human rights workers and U.S. officials as false. Virtually no evidence was ever presented against them, and for nearly three years they were held as hearings were inexplicably postponed and trial dates canceled. Human rights groups alleged that they were abused in detention. (H/T – Kevin)
Look, I don’t agree with everything President Trump does, but the effort he has put forth so far has been nothing less than incredible. This is reminiscent of the transition period between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. America is strong again, and both our allies and enemies know it.
President Trump the launch of over fifty Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian military installation. The order was given in retaliation for Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons.
The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was Syria’s use of banned chemical weapons that killed at least 100 people.
Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea fired 59 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha’irat in Homs province in western Syria. That’s the airfield from which the United States believes the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fired the banned weapons.
There was no immediate word on casualties. U.S. officials [said] people were not targeted and that aircraft and infrastructure at the site were hit, including the runway and gas fuel pumps.
While I am all for punishing the murderous Assad, the players in this civil war are equally unsavory. Assad is backed by Putin, and the “resistance” is reportedly in bed with ISIS. In my opinion, an escalation in Syria would be a mistake.
Obama hack Susan Rice, the woman who lied about the Benghazi attacks on national television, was behind the unmasking of Americans caught up in the surveillance of the Trump transition team.
White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.
The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.”
Rush Limbaugh has continually reminded people the one name which has never come up during the alleged Russian hacking scandal is Barack Obama. It is clear now that Obama not only knew about the surveillance and unmasking, but also approved it. The former president needs to be dragged before Congress immediately.
Believe it or not, there are still plenty of jurists who rule on the facts and not by their emotions. One such judge in the Eastern District of Virginia believes the former is more important than the latter.
Judge Anthony Trenga of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia found that Trump was within his legal rights to impose the travel ban and that it was not discriminatory toward Muslims. The injunction had been brought forward by Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who was represented by an attorney from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Trenga, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in his opinion that “the President has unqualified authority to bar physical entry to the United States at the border.” He said that the executive order makes no mention of religion and has a “state secular purpose” of protecting U.S. citizens from terrorist attacks.
The primary duty of an American president is to protect the citizens. This travel ban goes a long way toward doing that, and is another protection against European/Britain-style terror attacks.
The House Intelligence Committee Chairman announced yesterday U.S. intelligence services had President Trump’s transition team under surveillance since the November election. Chairman Devin Nunes claimed what he read “bothered” him and should bother the president and all Americans.
The U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump’s transition team and the information was “widely disseminated” in intelligence reports, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Wednesday.
“I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition.”
The intelligence collected has nothing to do with Russia or the investigation into Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to Nunes.
Nunes later told reporters he believes the details should “bother” the president and his team because some of the collection seemed “inappropriate.”
Nunes did not go into specific details, but one wonders who ordered the surveillance, and for what reason. Interestingly, President Obama changed the way intelligence is shared a week before Trump’s inauguration. Now, if I was a conspiracy guy…
As serious as this story is, what amazes me is how every “crazy” accusation the president has lobbed at his detractors has come to fruition.
