Low-class humors using sinister words and crude images.
Choosing a Profession
An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should
give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young men, the boy didn't
really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it.
One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects: a Bible, a silver dollar, a bottle of whiskey and a Playboy magazine.
"I'll just hide behind the door," the old preacher said to himself. "When he comes home from school this afternoon, I'll see which object he picks up. If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me and what a blessing that would be!If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a businessman, and that would be okay, too. But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunkard, and, Lord, what a shame that would be. And worst of all, if he picks up that magazine, he's gonna be a skirt chasin' bum."
The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's footsteps as he entered the house, whistling, and headed for his room. The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room, he spotted the objects on the table. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them.
Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped it into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink while he admired this month's Centerfold.
"Lord have mercy," the old preacher disgustedly whispered, "he's gonna run for Congress.”
A man finds a genie who says that it will grant him three wishes but that every pollitition in the country would get double.
The man says, "Ok, I wish for $1 million"
"Granted", says the genie, "but remember every pollitition in the country will get double"
The man says, "Ok, now I wish for a Ferrarii"
"Granted", says the genie, "but remember every pollitition in the country will get double. Your final wish?"

Fake News --- Donald Trump Has Been Nominated For The 2018 Nobel Peace Prize.
Real News --- Donald Trump (5/9/2018): " 'Everyone thinks' I deserve Nobel Peace Prize."
"Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it," Trump said when asked by a reporter in the White House if he thinks he should win the prestigious award.
(Sources: MSN News Multip[le sites)
If you protest the possibility of Trump winning the Nobel peace price, just think of how Obama won his.
Donald Trump was driving down a country road, when he spotted Obama standing in the middle of a huge field of grass. He pulled the car over to the side of the road and noticed that Obama was just standing there, doing nothing, looking at nothing.
Donald Trump got out of the car, walked all the way out to Obama and asked him, "Ah, e-x-c-u-s-e me, Kenyan boy, but what are you doing?"
Obama replied, "I'm trying to win a Nobel Prize."
"How?" asked Donald, puzzled.
"Well, I heard they give the Nobel Prize . . . to people who are out standing in their field."
Donald Trump vs The National Football League (NFL)
In a fiery Alabama speech on Sep 22, 2017, President Trump ripped NFL players who have kneeled in protest of the national anthemin:

President Trump called NFL player who have kneeled in protest of the national anthemin
'SON OF A BITCH'.
Samples of NFL players respond:
Chris Baker (Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle): So the BLACK NFL PLAYERS are SON OF A BITCH now WOW.
Eric Ebron (Detroit Lions tight end): "Does anyone tell trump to stick to politics, like they tell us to stick to sports?"
Richard Sherman (Seahawks cornerback): The behavior of the President is unacceptable and needs to be addressed. If you do not Condemn this divisive Rhetoric you are Condoning it!!
LaSean McCoy (Bills running back): It's really sad man ... our president is a asshole.
Doug Baldwin (Seahawks receiver): I’m not surprised by Trump’s comments. He has shown, since the beginning, his dehumanized nature. To think he would be anything different is to not know the reality of his presidency. He has surrounded himself with like minded people and has removed anyone who challenges him. He acts like a child craving attention and any attention will do.
Although these recent comments are not the worst things he’s said or done, I do believe that this will be a unifying moment for the sports world. And with as much influence as athletes have on the younger generation, this can be an opportunity for us to change the narrative of society and point to the president as a poor example of what you can become if you remain close minded, ignorant and uneducated.
For all the hate and negativity that has come from Trump’s presidency, I am still hopeful for justice and love to win out. As I continue to my efforts with the youth of our communities and engage with this hatred, I will resist the urge to return hate with hate and instead react in love and compassion for those who simply can not.
Samples of Celebrities respond:

To Kneel is a freedom of expression
To the Editor:
Donald Trump objects to professional athletes “disrespecting our flag” by kneeling during the playing of our national anthem at athletic events to protest inequalities experienced by Americans of color, although our Constitution expressly allows such freedom of expression.
Meanwhile Mr. Trump himself shows actual disrespect for our flag, our Constitution, the rule of law, the separation of powers and even basic personal decency.
Disrespect? Donald Trump is disrespect personified.
(CHRIS WEINMANN, NORWICH, VT.)
To Kneel is unpatriotic
To the Editor:
I’ve been a National Football League fan for 50 years and a season-ticket holder for more than five. After this weekend’s protests against the flag, I will not watch another game this year.
I support every American’s right to free speech and protest. My disappointment is in these millionaire players’ choice to take the easy route by turning their backs on the flag. Why not take your money and invest in an inner-city revitalization project, community policing program or a multitude of other programs that would actually do something? Actually get involved rather than turning your back on the flag that men and women have fought and died for!

“Fema [the Federal Emergency Management Administration] asks for documentation, I think we’ve given them enough documentation.”
“They had the gall this morning – look at this [gestures to two large binders filled with paper] – they had the gall this morning of asking me: ‘What are your priorities, mayor?’
“Well, where have you been?
“And I have been very respectful of the Fema employees. I have been patient but we have no time for patience any more.
“So, I am asking the president of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives.
.......... .......... ............
“I will do what I never thought I was going to do: I am begging. I am begging anyone that can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying. And you are killing us with the inefficiency and bureaucracy.
.......... .......... ............
“So I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell because my people’s lives are at stake. And we are but one nation. We may be small, but we are huge in dignity and zealous for life.
“So I’m asking members of the press to send a mayday call all over the world. We are dying here. And if we don’t stop and if we don’t get the food and the water into people’s hands, what we we are going to see is something close to a genocide.
“So, Mr Trump, I am begging you to take charge and save lives. After all, that is one of the founding principles of the United States of North America. If not, the world will see how we are treated not as second-class citizens but as animals that can be disposed of. Enough is enough.”

“It’s a sample from María from West Side Story. I knew that name would forever have a destructive connotation in the island and yet, I have a musical theater brain, so that’s where I went in my head first and I thought, I can flip the sample,” Miranda shared during an interview on NBC’s Today show. “The hook of almost like praying - thoughts and prayers are great; thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need supplies, we need aid, we need a government response that matches the response of our people, and that’s what the song’s about.”

In Defense of the Truth
The New York Times/OP-ED/Charles M. Blow (September 4, 2017)
Once again: Donald Trump is a liar.
The Department of Justice confirmed in a Friday court filing what we all knew to be true: that Trump’s slanderous assertion on Twitter in March that President Barack Obama had Trump’s “ ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower” just before the election was in fact a total fabrication.
According to the filing, both the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice’s National Security Division “confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described by the March 4, 2017 tweets.”
To some this lying may seem small, just another defect among many, but to me it is so much more. Honesty is the foundation of character. The truth is the common base from which all else is built.
And yet, this man feels completely unbound by it. He has no respect or reverence for it. For him, honesty is an option, one that he feels no compulsion to choose.
Before Trump’s bigotry, race-baiting, misogyny, corruption, bullying and vindictiveness, there is the lying. One could even argue that the lying is a core component of all the rest.
............... ........ .......
This is not simply about a flawed man, this is about the function of our democracy and American positioning in the world. How is one supposed to debate policy with someone who almost never tells the truth? How can a liar negotiate treaties or navigate international disputes? Without truth, everything falls apart, or more precisely, nothing can be established.
I vacillate between rage and sorrow that our country has come to such a pass. And yet, what is done is done. America made a colossal mistake, and it cannot be easily undone.
It is cold comfort that most of the country now believes that Trump isn’t a steady or moral or compassionate leader and half believe he isn’t honest, according to a Fox News Poll released last week.
But that acknowledgment doesn’t change the fact that we must develop a societal strategy for protecting the true in a post-truth world, and the first step is that we must never stop saying: Donald Trump is a liar.

President Trump’s list of false and misleading claims tops 1,000
The Washington Post/Meg Kelly, Glenn Kessler and Michelle Ye Hee Lee (August 22, 2017)
We have been tracking President Trump’s false or misleading claims for more than seven months. Somewhere around Aug. 4 or Aug. 5, he broke 1,000 claims, and the tally now stands at 1,057.
That’s an impressive number by any standard. In fact, we are a little late with this update because we have simply been overwhelmed keeping track of the deluge of claims made by the president in the later part of July. Things slowed down during the president’s “working vacation,” so we have finally been able to catch up.
At the president’s current pace, he averages nearly five claims a day. Many are repeats of claims that have been previously debunked. We also include statements that are unacknowledged flip-flops from previously held positions, such as touting new highs in a stock market that he previously derided as being a “big, fat bubble.”
More than 30 of the president’s misleading statements have been repeated three or more times.
Trump’s most repeated claim, uttered 50 times, was some variation of the statement that the Affordable Care Act is dying and “essentially dead.” The Congressional Budget Office has said that the Obamacare exchanges, despite well-documented issues, are not imploding and are expected to remain stable for the foreseeable future. Moreover, Congress has been unable to pass a law that would repeal Obamacare, making the continuation of the law Trump’s problem.
Trump repeatedly takes credit for events or business decisions that happened before he took the oath of office — or had even been elected. Forty-two times, he has touted that he secured business investments and job announcements that had been previously announced and could easily be found with a Google search. And 19 times he has boasted that he achieved a reduction in the cost of Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighters, even though the price cut had been in the works before he was elected.
But some of the president’s repeated claims have nothing to do with policy but instead rehash discredited campaign rhetoric, such as the false charge that Hillary Clinton gave 20 percent of the U.S. uranium supply to Russia or that the deputy FBI director got $700,000 from Clinton. Both claims were deemed Four-Pinocchios false in 2016. Yet Trump brought them up 11 times.
Some of Trump’s favorite claims are simply odd. Eleven times, he has said that the United States has already spent $6 trillion on “Middle East wars,” money that could have been used instead on building roads in the United States. He often suggests this is a recently calculated figure, but it combines the cost of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (which is actually in South Asia) and then includes future obligations for veterans costs and interest on the debt through 2053.
At the six-month mark, the president was averaging 4.6 claims a day, but he has now increased his pace. At his current rate, the president won’t break 2,000 claims in his first year in office. But with five months to go, all bets are off.

Trump wiretapping claim: Did Obama bug his successor?
BBC News Service (20 March 2017)
They were arguably Donald Trump's most striking claims to date: a series of tweets, accusing then-President Barack Obama of wire-tapping Trump Tower during the election.
They were not backed up by any evidence, and Mr Obama's spokesman and former US intelligence chief James Clapper denied that any wiretap had been ordered.
President Trump urged Congress to investigate, alongside its current investigations into allegations of Russian hacking during the election. But still no evidence has emerged.
What does the FBI say?
FBI Director James Comey for the first time on Monday confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee that the agency is investigating possible links between Russia and Mr Trump's associates as part of a broader inquiry into Moscow's interference in last year's election.
He also disputed Mr Trump's wiretapping claims.
"With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI," he told the panel.
After Mr Trump's tweets earlier this month, the New York Times quoted unnamed senior officials reporting that Mr Comey had said the claim was false and had asked the justice department to publicly reject it.
Mr Clapper said the intelligence agencies he had supervised did not wiretap Mr Trump last year, and nor did the FBI obtain a court order to monitor Mr Trump's phones.
As intelligence director, he told NBC, he would have known about a "court order on something like this".
This is a reference to the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which can grant wiretaps on the grounds of national security.

Trump Tower Was Wiretapped
Operation "Get Trump"
Trump Campaign Adviser Was Wiretapped Under Secret Court Orders: CNN
The New York Times/Reuters (September 18, 2017)
WASHINGTON — U.S. investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the 2016 election, CNN reported on Monday.
The secret court that oversees warrant requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act initially authorized monitoring of Manafort but discontinued it at some point in 2016 for lack of evidence, CNN said, citing one of its sources.
The FBI resumed surveillance under a new FISA warrant at some point last year and continued to monitor him into 2017, CNN said. The second warrant was obtained as part of the FBI's investigation into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian operatives, it said.

Comment: The real "target" of second FISA warrant to wiretap Paul Manafort was @realDonaldTrump. The Deep State's plan was to wiretap Trump Tower, where Manafort has a residence, in order to find the "smoking gun" for an impeachment-- a polite form of 'bloodless coup'. Liberals are polite people, you know.
They also beefed up the surveillance on Soviet Embassy and caught Michael Flynn, Trump's national security adviser. Hopefully, Flynn will blink and, then, "Happy Days Are Here Again."

Former DNI James Clapper: ‘I Can Deny’ Wiretap of Trump Tower
NBC News/Kailani Koenig (March 5, 2017)
WASHINGTON — Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Sunday denied any suggestion that Trump Tower communications were wiretapped before the election.
For the part of the national security apparatus that he oversaw, "there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign," Clapper told Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview on Sunday’s “Meet The Press.”
When Todd asked him whether he could confirm or deny if a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Act) order for this existed, Clapper declared, "I can deny it."
Asked again whether there was a FISA Court order to monitor Trump Tower, Clapper said, "Not to my knowledge."
Clapper said that if any wiretap like that occurred, he would “certainly hope” that he would be aware of it.
Clapper was responding to questions surrounding President Trump's accusation — without evidence — that former President Barack Obama personally ordered wiretap surveillance of Trump Tower before the November election.
Former President Obama's spokesman Kevin Lewis released a statement saying, "Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false."

CHUCK TODD: Let me start with the President's tweets yesterday, this idea that maybe President Obama ordered an illegal wiretap of his offices. If something like that happened, would this be something you would be aware of?
JAMES CLAPPER: I would certainly hope so. I can't say-- obviously, I'm not, I can't speak officially anymore. But I will say that, for the part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as DNI, there was no such wiretap activity mounted against-- the president elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign. I can't speak for other Title Three authorized entities in the government or a state or local entity.
CHUCK TODD: Yeah, I was just going to say, if the F.B.I., for instance, had a FISA court order of some sort for a surveillance, would that be information you would know or not know?
JAMES CLAPPER: Yes.
CHUCK TODD: You would be told this?

Clapper: "Possible" That Trump Was Recorded On Manafort Wiretap, "Conceivable"
RealClear Politics/Ian Schwartz (September 21, 2017)
Wednesday (9/20/2017) on CNN, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said it is conceivable that then-candidate Donald Trump was picked up in a wiretap of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
DON LEMON, CNN HOST: Is it possible the president was picked up in a conversation with Paul Manafort?
JAMES CLAPPER, FORMER DNI: It's certainly conceivable.
LEMON: Is it likely?
CLAPPER: I can't say. I wouldn't want to go there, but I will say it's possible.
The president's allies say the fact that Manafort was wiretapped proves that the president was right to accuse the former president of wiretapping him and you were wrong. What's your response?" Lemon asked Clapper.
"Well, again, I stand on that statement that you just replayed and I cannot comment on the media reporting, which is all we have, about a FISA warrant allegedly lodged against Mr. Manafort. I can't comment on that. I will simply reiterate what I said in March, and I stand on that," Clapper responded.
Clapper told Lemon he did not know about a FISA warrant against Manafort and once again that he stands by what he said on Meet the Press.
"I stand on what I said on the 5th of March on Meet the Press," the former intelligence director said.
"Again, I have to say that what we have is media reporting only. And actually, commenting on -- FISA's are classified and so, you know, even if I knew something about it I couldn't [talk about it] and I don't. And again, I will just conclude by saying I stand on what I said on the 5th of March," Clapper told Lemon.

James Clapper stuns: Yes, Trump could’ve been recorded.
The Washington Times/Cheryl K. Chumley (September 22, 2017)
James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence, made a rather astonishing admission during a CNN interview about the truth of Paul Manafort’s wiretapping.
He said, in answer to a question from host Don Lemon, that it’s “possible” President Donald Trump could’ve been captured on audio during the federal wiretapping of Manafort.
It’s not the content of what Clapper said that’s astonishing. That’s just common sense; that’s just speaking the obvious. Manafort, after all, maintained a residence at Trump Tower at or around the same time he was reportedly being tapped by feds. Chances are he ran into Trump on at least one occasion and engaged in a conversation — a conversation that went straight into the feds’ ears.
No, what’s astonishing is that a member of the intel community — well, former member, to be technical — and a high-ranking one at that, would actually admit the president’s voice could’ve been caught by wiretap.
But Clapper, as a quick side note, is the same guy who told a “Meet the Press” audience back in March that his intelligence community — the one he oversaw under Barack Obama — never wiretapped Trump or Trump campaign officials. He also said he would’ve known if another law enforcement agency, like the FBI, had obtained a FISA warrant to conduct surveillance on a member of Trump’s campaign.

Obama spied on Putin, not Trump

Two things can be true at once: 1) Trump lied. 2) He was picked up on surveillance.
NEWSWEEK/Graham Lanktree (September 20, 2017)
Legal experts say that the disclosures about Manafort and that Trump was picked up during surveillance don’t make true the president’s claims he was wiretapped by President Barack Obama.
“Two things can be true at once: 1) Trump lied. 2) He was picked up on surveillance of suspected foreign agents or criminals,” tweeted the watchdog group American Oversight, headed by a team of legal experts. The group’s executive director, Austin Evers, recently served in the Department of State as senior counsel for oversight and transparency.
“If Trump was talking with foreign agents who were under FBI surveillance, he may have been recorded even if not the tap target,” the nonprofit group wrote. “Trying to downplay Trump’s lie by showing he associated with suspected criminals hardly seems like a robust defense of his honesty.”
The alleged existence of “FISA warrants targeting Manafort still have nothing to do with what the president talked about in his March 4th Twitter rant,” Moss wrote in a legal analysis challenging the Fox News pundits’ claims that Trump has been vindicated on his accusation against Obama.
At the very least, the surveillance shows “Manafort was the subject of lawful surveillance, and it certainly is plausible that his communications with the president were caught up incidentally in that surveillance,” Moss wrote.
But this is a “rather far cry from the president’s hyperbolic claims from March and his references to Nixon and Watergate,” he wrote.

CNN, March 5, 2017: "Trump's baseless wiretap claim"
CNN, September 5, 2017: "Donald Trump just flat-out lied about Trump Tower wiretapping"
CNN, September 18, 2017: "Exclusive: US government wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman"
(Tweets from actor James Woods)
Donald Trump still has no evidence that his wiretapping claim was right
CNN/Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large (September 19, 2017)
Manafort wiretapped under secret court orders
(CNN) In the immediate aftermath of CNN's bombshell reporting Monday night that the FBI had wiretapped one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump allies -- and some people affiliated with the WikiLeaks efforts -- argued that the reporting was proof that the President's much-covered March tweet about being wiretapped had been proven right.
This tweet, from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was typical of that reaction:
Trump: I was "wire tapped"
CNN: Haha. That idiot @realDonaldTrump thinks he was wiretapped.
..Six months later..
CNN: Trump was wiretapped
Here's the thing: The Manafort wiretapping doesn't even come close to proving that Trump's claim was or is right.
Let's start from the beginning.
1. "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"
2. "Is it legal for a sitting President to be 'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!"
3. "I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!"
4. "How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"
It is important to be very clear about what exactly Trump is alleging there in his tweets: That President Obama had ordered a wiretap on Trump's own lines -- he repeatedly uses the term "my phones."
During the period of time covered by the second Manafort wiretapping, Trump and his former campaign chairman were still in contact. It's not known whether any of the conversations between the two men were picked up on the wiretap. While Manafort does have a residence in Trump Tower, it's not clear whether any FBI surveillance took place there. Is it possible Trump meant "my phones" as a catchall for every phone line associated with a person at Trump Tower? If that's the case, why has neither Trump nor the White House made that clear before now as this allegation has festered?
........ .......... .........
It's worth noting here that even if those conversations between Trump and Manafort were picked up in the surveillance, they would be eliminated unless the conversation had to do with Manafort's ties to Russian officials. This is a process called "minimization" which is described in the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 this way:
"Information acquired from an electronic surveillance conducted pursuant to this subchapter concerning any United States person may be used and disclosed by Federal officers and employees without the consent of the United States person only in accordance with the minimization procedures required by this subchapter. No otherwise privileged communication obtained in accordance with, or in violation of, the provisions of this subchapter shall lose its privileged character. No information acquired from an electronic surveillance pursuant to this subchapter may be used or disclosed by Federal officers or employees except for lawful purposes."
But, let's keep our eye on the ball here: The Justice Department tapping Manafort's phone -- even at his residence at Trump Tower (which we don't know if they actually did) -- is not the same thing as Obama ordering Trump's "wires tapped." It's just not. Even if -- and that's a real "if" -- conversations between the two men were picked up in the wiretap on Manafort.
........ .......... .........
And the fact that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has also definitively ruled out that Trump's phones were tapped.
"For the part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as DNI, there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the President-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign," Clapper said on NBC in March. Asked directly whether there was a FISA warrant to tap Trump's phone at Trump Tower, Clapper responded bluntly: "I can deny it."
........ .......... .........
Details and words matter -- particularly in a story this complicated. And the details and words reported by CNN last night do nothing to exonerate Trump from his still-spurious claim that he was wiretapped.

Comment: Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large wrote on September 19, 2017 that Donald Trump still has no evidence that his wiretapping claim was right and that the details and words reported by CNN on 9/18 do nothing to exonerate Trump from his still-spurious claim that he was wiretapped. Well, James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, came to CNN on 9/20/2017 and said: "It's 'Possible' Trump Was Recorded on Manafort Wiretap. It's certainly 'conceivable'."
By the way, the real "target" of second FISA warrant to wiretap Paul Manafort was @realDonaldTrump. The Deep State's plan was to wiretap Trump Tower, where Manafort has a residence, in order to get something juicy from Trump. This is a process called 'bloodless coup' understood very well by Chris Cillizza, who pretends that Obama and his team are so honest that they will never violate the process called "minimization" described in the FISA Amendments Act of 2008. Well, you don't think that they will leak the tappings to CNN and The New York Times if they are able to grab Trump by his balls? Have you forgotten the way they leaked the phone conversation between Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak? Not even Donald Trump could control himself and had to take a 'leak' all over Billy Bush when he got the chance grabbing hot women by the pussy. Just look at the way he took the 'leak' on CNN in the cartoon above.
Deep State Exists!
The deep state refers to career federal employees who advance their own agenda and manipulate public policy without accountability to our elected leaders or voters.
Left: Just How Did Obama Do It?
Right: Trump Has Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself.
The target was Trump, not Manafort
On November 7, 2016, Louise Mensch reported in the right-leaning Heat Street, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had twice sought Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants in connection with its investigation of the Trump campaign's links to Russia. According to Mensch, the first request for a warrant which "named Trump" was denied in June 2016 and, a second, more "narrowly drawn" request was granted in October 2016. Mensch wrote that this warrant gave "counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of 'U.S. persons' in Donald Trump's campaign with ties to Russia," and to "look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons". Mensch further claimed that the October warrant was granted in "connection with the investigation of suspected activity between the server [in Trump Tower] and two banks, SVB Bank and Alfa Bank," and that "it is thought in the intelligence community that the warrant covers any 'US person' connected to this investigation, and thus covers Donald Trump and at least three further men." Mensch's article cited reports from two anonymous "sources with links to the counter-intelligence community."
(Source: Wikipedia Trump Tower wiretapping allegations)
Comment: If this report was true, the real "target" of FISA warrents was @realDonaldTrump. Since the first request for a warrant which "named Trump" was denied, the second "narrwly drawn" request was used as a Trojan horse. if Trump’s juicy voice was "accidentally" heard on any recording, then, we can all sing "Happy Days Are Here Again" except the bitter 'Kenyan-born' Obama, who prefers "I Got You Babe" and "NOW WE ARE EVEN".
Now you know why Trump fired Comey, the tall guy who requested the FISA warrants --- "No, No, No, you are not under investigation, Mr. President, but, Good Luck!"
"If the federal government wants to 'get you,' they will find a way."

Obama spied on Putin, not Trump
TheHill.com/Brent Budowsky (September 22, 2017)
President Obama did not tap or spy against President Trump. Obama spied on Putin, not Trump, but if Trump’s voice is heard on any recording of any Russian attacking our democracy, he would have nothing to fear unless he did something legally wrong, which I am NOT suggesting.

Paul Manafort wiretapping shows the deep state is real and dangerous
TheHill.com/Gayle Trotter (September 21, 2017)
One need not subscribe to intricate conspiracy theories to believe that career bureaucrats and prior-administration holdovers systematically work against the current political leadership. Federal agency employees gave a staggering 95 percent of their campaign contributions to oppose the current administration. Political appointees leading these agencies are hard-pressed to counter the effects of their employees’ nearly unanimous and daily efforts to undermine their goals.
When President Trump tweeted in March 2017 that the prior administration wiretapped his campaign and the Trump Tower, the media treated the president’s claim not merely as untrue but downright deranged. Intelligence officials responded immediately with steadfast and categorical denials. DNI director James Clapper and FBI director James Comey both insisted that President Trump’s tweet was not correct or that they had no information about the alleged wiretapping.
We now know that Manafort, who by the way has a residence in Trump Tower, was indeed subject to a federal wiretap, according to media reports. Now Messrs. Clapper and Comey, and their mainstream media defenders, are left with semantic arguments about “wiretapping” reminiscent of president Bill Clinton’s infamous claim defending his own sworn testimony because his veracity “depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”
Consider also the tale of two investigations. Special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigators deployed brass-knuckles tactics against Manafort, designed to terrify and disorient him and his wife. Intimidation tactics were on full display, bypassing the locks on their residence while they slept and subjected his wife to a weapons search during a predawn raid of the Manafort home. These are highly unusual measures for white-collar offenses, as former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy explains.
In contrast, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton received kid-glove treatment for her own involvement in national security and corruption offenses. The FBI permitted her to arrange a time to come in and talk with the investigators. There was no search of any of her residences, much less a traumatic predawn raid and spousal body search (can you imagine?).
......... ....... (Then-attorney general Loretta Lynch's chat on the tarmac with former president Clinton.)
Afterwards, Lynch directed Comey to use the term “matter” rather than “investigation.” New evidence suggests that Comey predetermined that Clinton would not be charged, before investigators had even interviewed her or more than a dozen other witnesses.
Other examples abound. Former United Nations ambassador Samantha Powell allegedly requested unmasking U.S. citizens at an average rate exceeding one request for each working day in 2016, including in the final days of the prior administration. Sheryl Atkinson, a former CBS reporter, outlined how she and other journalists also became targets of the deep state.
......... ....... (Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative nonprofit groups.)
Unprecedented unmaskings, wiretapping opposition campaigns, spying on journalists, directing federal agency power against political opponents: All of these actions were committed by unaccountable federal agency personnel in pursuit of retaining power and influence.
Is there a deep state working against the president’s agenda, protecting its own and targeting usurpers? Perhaps we will never know for sure, but this week’s revelation of the wiretapping of Paul Manafort during and after the election is clearly relevant to this inquiry.

Robert Mueller vs Donald Trump
The Obama Regime Caught Spying on the Trump Campaign
Rush Limbaugh (Sep 21, 2017)
RUSH: Samantha Power has been unmasking Americans in the last year of the Obama Regime at the rate of one American every working day. Two-hundred-and-sixty different Americans unmasked by someone not even in the intelligence community. She was a U.N. ambassador. It would be the equivalent of Nikki Haley today unmasking a bunch of people that she thought not — Now, I don’t know that too many people know much about Samantha Power.
........... .......... ...........
Obama didn’t need to send her a memo. The fact that she was working for Obama was all anybody needed to know. She doesn’t need to be told that conservatives are to be discriminated against. She doesn’t need to be told that conservatives are corrupt. She doesn’t need to be told to believe that conservatives pose a threat and therefore they should be penalized, limited, or what have you. She’ll just do it. As Samantha Power would clearly, if she believes that, for example, opponents of Obama, be they in the Trump campaign or anywhere, just the very fact that they are opponents makes them suspects, the very fact that they oppose Obama.
........... .......... ...........
They rely on the fact that most people are not nearly as involved and therefore not nearly as suspicious, and therefore they are free and able to operate above the line and above the radar. They’re able to operate in plain view. Nobody’s gonna care, except the opponents, and they don’t think we can do anything to stop them. The average, ordinary American, if this is learned, like it has been, the answer will be, “We didn’t know she was doing it. I don’t recall. But so what. So what. If she was exposing people, if she was unmasking, they deserved it.” That would be the reaction.
Here’s Catherine Herridge. Catherine Herridge at Fox News is the source authority for the realization that Samantha Power has been unmasking Americans.
HERRIDGE: Fox News is learning new information about the rapid pace of unmasking in the final months of the Obama White House. Two sources not authorized to speak on the record said the requests from Samantha Power, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, exceeds 260, with one request coming in the days leading up to the inauguration.
RUSH: Now, for those again who might be thinking, “What’s the big deal here, what’s unmasking?” Unmasking is a crime, can be a crime. Michael Flynn — everybody knows that name now — Michael Flynn forced to resign from the Trump administration, he was unmasked.
The way it happens is the intelligence community, the DIA, the CIA, the NSA, the whoever-A, the FBI, conducting wiretap or other kinds of surveillance on known foreign agents. For example, the Russian ambassador, whoever he is, is gonna be surveilled. The North Korean ambassador is gonna be surveilled, wiretapped. They know it. We know it. And so the Russian ambassador, the guy goes to lunch all the time, Kislyak, was under surveillance. And he talked to Flynn one day. Well, the intelligence people hear this. In this case it was Obama intel people. It was before Trump was inaugurated, and they hear Flynn, they hear the conversation.
Flynn’s not supposed to be made public. His side of the conversation’s not supposed to go made public ’cause he’s not the target of the wiretap. But if somebody comes along and unmasks him, which happened, then of course it ends up in the newspaper, like it did, and Michael Flynn is destroyed. He’s considered to be an agent for a foreign government. He’s talking to the foreign ambassador, the media deep state sources can run stories in the newspaper, Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, put it on TV, and Flynn after a few weeks is destroyed.
All of that is not legal. You have to get permission and there has to be a legitimate reason. The unmasking happens within the intelligence agency so they’re never supposed to be public with this because these people are not the target. Unmasked names are people who were not targets. But Samantha Power thought everybody needed to know what they’re saying and doing. And why? Because they’re conservatives or because they’re Republicans and because they’re not Obamaites. And simply because of that they deserve to be unmasked. That alone will be enough for her.
She’s no different than the snowflakes on college campus that will engage in riots if somebody shows up and says anything that’s unapproved. She’s no different, that mind-set. And she’s not alone. So 260 names. And of course Manafort we now learn was surveilled. That means Trump had to have been overheard talking to Manafort. Manafort was being wiretapped, he is talking about Trump. It is a foregone conclusion, it’s inarguable that Trump was overheard and whatever.
Now, Trump found out about it and claims that his wires were tapped at Trump Tower. Everybody laughed and mocked and said he didn’t even know how to say it. Your taps don’t get wired. Your wires don’t get tapped. Trump doesn’t even know what he’s talking about. But he always does. He always ends up being, to one degree or another, right.
Now, people said, “No, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. Trump was not targeted.” Exactly. That’s the easiest way out. Trump was not targeted. Manafort was. Well, Trump is still not wrong. It’s a little overlap here. They might be able to credibly say that they didn’t target Trump, that there were no wiretaps targeting Trump, but at the same time they would know they didn’t have to target Trump in order to monitor what he was saying to certain people. You target those people. You get a FISA warrant to wiretap or surveil somebody, people you know Trump’s gonna be talking to, and bammo.
........... .......... ...........
So let’s go to the audio sound bites here. This was March 5th on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd speaking with James Clapper, an elderly version of Mr. Clean, if you add some earrings in there. He was the Director of National Intelligence for Obama. Chuck Todd says, “If the FBI, for instance, has a FISA court order of some sort for surveillance, would that be information you would know?”
TODD: You would be told this?
CLAPPER: I would know that.
TODD: If there was a FISA court order —
TODD: — on something like this?
CLAPPER: Something like this, absolutely.
TODD: And at this point you can’t confirm or deny whether that exists?
CLAPPER: I can deny it.
TODD: There is no FISA court order?
CLAPPER: Not to my knowledge.
TODD: Of anything at Trump Tower?
RUSH: Well, there was. That’s the problem. There was. There was a FISA court order to wiretap Manafort. Manafort had an apartment at Trump Tower. But you heard Clapper, “No. No. Not to my knowledge.” So did he lie? Did he not know? He said he would know. At the beginning of the bite, yes, he would be told, “I would know this.”
“So no wiretapping at Trump Tower?”
“Not to my knowledge.” So Clapper goes out, this is when the media starts laughing at Trump, what a buffoon, what an idiot, shouldn’t use Twitter, he’s lying and doing all that. So yesterday, last night CNN, Don Lemon goes and gets Clapper, brings him back, says, “CNN has some exclusive reporting involving Manafort, specifically investigators got a FISA warrant to wiretap Manafort before and after the election. You said that you would know that and that you didn’t know it, so it didn’t happen. What’s your reaction to it now?”
CLAPPER: I can’t comment on a specific FISA order.
CLAPPER: I said some things about this on Meet the Press on the 5th of March, and —
CLAPPER: — I stand on, uh, that statement. Uh, I can’t, uh, I can’t confirm or deny it. I cannot comment on the media reporting which is all we have about a FISA warrant allegedly launched against Mr. Manafort. I can’t comment on that. I will simply reiterate what I said in March, uh, and I stand on that.
RUSH: What a dodge. What a dodge. I can’t comment on it. What do you mean, you can’t comment? You’ve been commenting on it every time anybody asks you until — this guy sounded like Gergen yesterday, or two days ago, when he found this all — (stuttering) The court of approval. Anyway, so they’re chasing their tails now. They’re lying either now or then about this. And they have been caught. But they are also confident nothing’s gonna happen to them because even though Lemon uncovered it here, it’s gonna die there, or will. They will not pursue it.
........... .......... ...........
LEMON: Is it possible the president was picked up in a conversation with Paul Manafort?
CLAPPER: It’s certainly conceivable. Yeah, that’s —
LEMON: Is it likely?
CLAPPER: Uh, I can’t say. I wouldn’t want to go there, but it – I will say it’s – it’s possible.
RUSH: Well, obviously. Obviously he was. They had a FISA warrant on Manafort, if we are to believe the media. And who’s the source for the media? The people that did it. Yeah, they are supposed to be classified. But 95% of the crap that’s been in the newspapers about this for the last nine months has been classified, and it’s leaked anyway.
So a long way of getting there, but Clapper says (imitating Clapper), “Well, it’s certainly conceivable, yes, that President Trump was picked up in a, uh, certainly conceivable. I don’t know, uhhh. And I stand by –” These people are caught. Samantha Power is caught. Clapper and Brennan and all of these people are caught. They have been exposed here. And so now the effort to make it appear like there’s no big deal and that nobody really knows is what’s underway.

Left: Even Angelina Jolie was clearly impressed; but not the man beside her. ------ Boring!.
Right: @oprah speech was the exact time Reese Witherspoon divides her life into pre-menopausal and post-menopausal periods.
Oprah Winfrey's rousing Golden Globes speech (1/7/2018)
Recy Taylor was a young wife and mother walking home from a church service she'd attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church. They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case and together they sought justice. But justice wasn't an option in the era of Jim Crow. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted. Recy Taylor died ten days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday. She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.
Their time is up. And I just hope -- I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years, and even now tormented, goes marching on. It was somewhere in Rosa Parks' heart almost 11 years later, when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery, and it's here with every woman who chooses to say, "Me too." And every man -- every man who chooses to listen.
In my career, what I've always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. To say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere and how we overcome. I've interviewed and portrayed people who've withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights. So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me too" again.

Did Harvey Weinstein use Oprah Winfrey to lure stary-eyed actress for an unforgetting night?
What does Oprah represent? Fake science, hucksters and greed
By Maureen Callahan (New York Post
Copy) January 8, 2018
Have we learned nothing?
One speech at the Golden Globes — admittedly a barn-burner — and here comes the drumbeat for a billionaire celebrity with no governing experience to run for president.
“I’m on the bus with Oprah,” Jimmy Kimmel said.
“I want her to run for president,” said Meryl Streep.
“She’s running,” tweeted former “Hamilton” star Leslie Odom Jr. “A new day is on the way.”
Even a major network endorsed her. “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” read a tweet on NBC’s verified account (since deleted).
Oprah, who until Sunday night insisted she would never run for president — “I will never run for public office,” she told The Hollywood Reporter in October — is apparently having second thoughts. “It’s up to the people,’” her partner, Stedman Graham, told the LA Times. “She would absolutely do it.”
She should absolutely not.
A run for the White House should never again resemble a reality show.
On her eponymous daytime talk show — which ran from 1986 to 2011 — Winfrey routinely endorsed fake science and spiritual hucksters. She cast herself as America’s foremost secular deity and seems to still believe it. Logic and reason don’t guide Oprah Winfrey; feelings and money do.
In 2006, Winfrey endorsed one of the most anti-intellectual products of the decade: a book and video called “The Secret,”
That same year, a woman named Kim Tinkham appeared on Winfrey’s show. ... She died in 2010. ....
Winfrey also gave a platform to Jenny McCarthy. .....
Other Oprah-backed grifters include Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, and Suzanne Somers. ......
Yet for all Winfrey’s spiritual searching, at her core she’s deeply materialistic.
.......... .......... .........
Oprah, it turns out, is as relatable as Trump. Her greed is limitless. .......
“Thank you for your money,” Winfrey told a crowd in Michigan upon departing. “I know how hard you all work.”
Winfrey’s materialism extends to her Leadership Academy for Girls .........
Within months of its 2007 opening, Winfrey’s school was embroiled in a child abuse scandal.......
For all her good intentions, it seems she threw millions of dollars at a deep, seemingly intractable problem and walked away.
If she runs as a Democrat in 2020, Winfrey will be called to answer one of her most controversial statements, ... why she hasn’t invested in educating America’s neediest.
“I became so frustrated with visiting inner-city schools that I just stopped going,” she told Newsweek in 2007. “The sense that you need to learn just isn’t there. If you ask the kids what they want or need, they will say an iPod or some sneakers. In South Africa, they don’t ask for money or toys. They ask for uniforms so they can go to school.”
What happens when Oprah explains that statement to the Dems’ most impactful bloc: black voters?

There’s An Elephant In Harvey Weinstein’s Hotel Room
(10/18/2017, by Bim Adewunmi, BuzzFeed Senior Culture Writer.)
The elephant in the room in discussions about the alleged crimes and misdemeanors of Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein looks eerily similar to an elephant of the past. It is the Race elephant. And among the allegations, the question of race is one that we are not really looking to engage with, because it is knotty and gnarly. But it bears talking about, because there are black women in Hollywood, and not talking about it does us all a disservice.

Elephant In The Room Of Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment Scandal Is “CASTING COUCH RACISM” (Oct 23, 2017)
Rush Limbaugh: “Buried beneath the sickening story of Harvey Weinstein’s abuse is another story ----(chuckles) ---- Let me sum it up for you. There aren’t any black women that made the trek to Harvey Weinstein’s hotel suite; therefore, in addition to everything else this is, it’s racist. This illustrates and demonstrates the problem of African-American women being cast in Hollywood.
Because if the casting couch is the route — and if no producer wants an African-American actress on the casting couch — then there is casting couch racism."

Mike Pence doesn't dine alone with other women.
How Pence's Dudely Dinners Hurt Women. (MAR 30, 2017, by Olga Khazan The Atlantic
The vice president—and other powerful men—regularly avoid one-on-one meetings with women in the name of protecting their families. In the end, what suffers is women’s progress.
Pence is not the only powerful man in Washington who goes to great lengths to avoid the appearance of impropriety with the opposite sex.... Social-science research shows this practice extends beyond politics and into the business world, and it can hold women back from key advancement opportunities. ....
When men avoid professional relationships with women, even if for noble reasons, it actually hurts women in the end. “The research is irrefutable: Those with larger networks earn more money and get promoted faster. Because men typically dominate senior management, there’s evidence that the most valuable network members may be men,” wrote Kim Elsesser, a research scholar at the UCLA Center for the Study of Women, in the Los Angeles Times recently. “Without access to beneficial friendships and mentor relationships with executive men, women won’t be able to close the gender gap that exists in most professions.”
Clara Jeffery (@ClaraJeffery) asked: "If Pence won't eat with a woman alone, how could a woman be Chief of Staff, or lawyer, campaign manager, or..."
Comment: Harvey Weinstein should be applauded for his courage and willingness to have one-on-one meetings with young actresses in private. However, in order to avoid the appearance of racism, he should, from time to time, invite Black and Latino actresses as well.
Mike Pence doesn't eat alone with women. That speaks volumes
(31 March 2017 by Jessica Valenti The Guardian Copy)
Never mind what it means for the (very few) women who work in the White House, who apparently can’t count on business dinners or mentorship over a meal. The underlying message of a rule like Pence’s is the same one that’s taught to teens in abstinence-only education classes: men can’t control themselves when alone with women. ... It’s an insulting view of men, a limiting role for women. ... But perhaps this explains the noticeable lack of women in White House.
if Keith Ellison – who is Muslim (the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress[)– “refused to dine one on one with women and used his religion to justify it, the political right would lose their minds”.
Pence is a misogynist. We know it from his voting record, we know it from the things that he’s said about women’s rights and now we know it because of his odd personal rule not to dine with women alone. But let’s not let one man’s sexism distract us from his whole party’s sexist agenda.

Lind's costar Kevin McNally, who was stood next to Hind in the photograph, tweeted his 'full support for @heatherglind for speaking out about the horrible event in Houston. All of which is true'
Alexander Rose, author of Washington Spies, added on Twitter that he had also attended the event and had witnesses the assault. 'Her account is 100% accurate. I was there. It was not a 'joke' gone awry,' he tweeted.

Second woman claims George H.W. Bush grabbed her butt.
Following allegations against him by Heather Lind, a second woman, Jordana Grolnick, has come forward to say former US President George H.W. Bush grabbed her butt while telling a dirty joke about his favorite magician being 'David Cop-a-Feel'.

Ms Grolnick shared a photo (above left) of the moment the alleged assault took place on her Instagram page showing her standing next to Bush, whose hand appears to be near her butt (circled).
"He’s a dirty old man,’” she says.

Third woman accuses George H.W. Bush of grabbing her butt
A third woman is accusing former President George H.W. Bush of grabbing her backside — and making the same corny “David Cop-a-Feel” joke.
Author Christina Baker Kline recalled the horrifying butt-grab in April 2014, when she lunched with the Bushes at the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy Fundraiser.
“President Bush put his arm around me, low on my back. His comic timing was impeccable,” Kline recalled. “‘David Cop-a-feel,’ he said, and squeezed my butt, hard, just as the photographer snapped the photo. Instinctively, I swiped his hand away.”
As of 10/30/2017, 5 women have come forward to accuse George H.W. Bush of sexual assault. Among them is former Maine Senate candidate Amanda Staples, who said on Instagram that Bush groped her in 2005 as she posed for a photo with the former president. (Source: www.democracynow.org)
George H.W. Bush's apology
Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath responded with a statement that reads: 'At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures.
'To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women's rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner.
'Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.'
The act of mysteriously fondling a person without her/him knowing it was an intentional act of perversion.
david copafeel is a perverted magician who cops a feel while performin a magic trick on you.
Me and my lady went to see a magic act done by david copafeel and he picked my lady out the audience to particapate and wouldnt you know it he did copafeel while she was in the disappearing cabinet.

Presidents Behaving Badly
By Brian Abrams February 13, 2015
Presidents of the United States have vomited at state dinners (George H.W. Bush), nicknamed their penises (Warren G. Harding, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson), had a meaningless fling in Bermuda while the wife was stuck in New Jersey (Woodrow Wilson), had a meaningless fling inside the White House (Bill Clinton), unapologetically belched on recorded telephone calls (LBJ), exhibited an excruciatingly dry sense of humor that was often lost on colleagues (Calvin Coolidge), channel-surfed until driving the old lady batty (Dwight D. Eisenhower), took chest-bursting bong rips on Mount Tantalus (Barack Obama), polished off 12-ounce steaks for breakfast (Taft), and popped prescription pills as though they were Skittles (Richard Nixon), among other bad habits, health hazards and career killers. (The Washington Post Presidents are every bit as flawed as all of us. Let’s celebrate that.)
The Best of Butt Grabs
Colin Kaepernick vs The Flag
Left: In a fiery Alabama speech on Sep 22, 2017, President Trump ripped NFL players who have kneeled in protest of the national anthemin:
'Get that son of a bitch (the one with the big Afro) off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired!'"
Right: Colin Kaepernick was portrayed on the cover of Time Magazine, dignifiedly, without the Afro.
Comment: President Trump did not call Colin Kaepernick a Nigga. Instead, Trump called him SOB because Colin has two white mamas.

Brian Ross's bombshell report
December 1, 2017 (Friday)
ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent, Brian Ross, reported this morning (at 11:00 a.m. EST) that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had pleaded guilty in the Russia probe, and “is prepared to testify that President Trump – as a candidate, Donald Trump–ordered him, directed him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.”
The report was such a bombshell it prompted a dramatic reaction in the financial markets, and the Dow fell more than 350 points.
The video clip of Ross’s announcement was shared by ABC News in a tweet, and it sparked a feeding frenzy and was retweeted over 26,000 times within hours before it was deleted.
All kinds of celebrations broke out across the U.S.A.

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it's beginning to look a lot like collusion," said the guest Ana Navarro, a Republican-Strategist.

'The View' studio erupts with cheers after hearing the Flynn news
The women of The View heard the Michael Flynn news live on air Friday morning and the reaction in the studio was jubilant to say the least.
Host Joy Behar got the honor of revealing the bombshell that Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty about lying to the FBI about working with the Russians.
During the episode, she was handed a card from a member of the production team and read out the news with increasing excitement.
"Michael Flynn promised full cooperation to the Mueller team ... and is prepared to testify that as a candidate Donald Trump directed him to MAKE CONTACT WITH THE RUSSIANS," she shouted before throwing her prompt card in the air with, well, unfettered joy.
The crowd erupted with cheers and applause and chants of "lock them up" filled the studio. Behar in her excitement mimicked the Oprah refrain with, "He goes to jail, he goes to jail!"
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it's beginning to look a lot like collusion," Ann Navarro added.
Conservative host and daughter of Sen. John McCain, Meghan McCain wasn't in such a celebratory mood, but she conceded that "this is significant" and that she would give Democrats and liberals this moment. She also warned that any indictment would seriously divide the country.
'The View' Celebrates Report
Posted by Tim Hains On Date December 1, 2017
The hosts of ABC's 'The View' celebrate upon hearing reporting from ABC's Brian Ross that Michael Flynn promised full cooperation to the Mueller team and is prepared to testify that as a candidate Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians.
"Yes!" host Joy Behar said. "Yay!"
"He goes to jail! He goes to jail! He goes to jail! Lock him up, lock him up!"
"Take this moment, joy, take this moment," co-host Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, laughed. "I give this to you."
"For me, this is the antithesis of election night," Behar said. "On election night, I had to wear a veil, I was in mourning. So this is like the antithesis of that hideous night, and that is why I am happy."
"There is no legal definition for collusion, but there is a legal definition for conspiracy," co-host Sunny Hostin said. "Conspiracy requires an overt act from one person to another, I could prove an overt act, easily."
"I remember Richard Nixon, and Richard Nixon stepped down, and so should Donald Trump," Behar said. "If he is going to be taken down for what he did, and this country can start to heal... that is a happy day," she said later. "Justice is messy."
"To me it is not a happy day, it is a sad day," former Jeb Bush staffer Ana Navarro said. "For me what it is, first of all, we're still in this process, it is a scary day. The idea that this guy, he was having contact with the Russians, during the election, was then named National Security Adviser -- the power that that has. The intelligence, the clearance, the access, the influence, the profile, the international implications -- this guy, this former general who knew what he was doing, had been having contact with the Russians and was able to get that position, and that Donald Trump continued protecting him, over and over again... is scary as hell."
Rush Limbaugh Nailed It (Again)
How did he do it? Rush Limbaugh was immediately skeptical of Brian Ross report.
This is how he started his Friday show at noon:
RUSH Limbaugh: "Yeah, I don’t mean to be talking down here, but everybody calm down. Just calm down. ABC News and Brian Ross are exactly who we think they are. Brian Ross reporting that Flynn promised to tell Mueller anything he wants to know about Trump and his family. Folks, it’s Brian Ross. It’s ABC. It’s much ado about nothing. Hang on."
ABC was forced to first 'clarify', then 'correct' Ross’s reporting online and on air.
Ross' original reporting was also not included in the networks online story. The decision not to post the report online suggests ABC News doubted its accuracy from early on. A CNN reporter called ABC News asking why and was later told that a 'clarification' will be announced on "World News Tonight"
Brian Ross did announce a 'clarification' of his story on “World News Tonight with David Muir” at 6:30 p.m.
Ross said: "And David, a clarification tonight on something one of Flynn's confidante's told us and we reported earlier today. He said the President asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He's now clarifying that statement, saying, according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots and then after the election, the President-elect asked him — and told him to contact Russia on other issues, including working together to fight ISIS, David."
On Twitter, ABC News released a similar "clarification,"
That 'clarification' turned into a 'correction' after an avalanche of criticism. Jim VandeHei, the CEO and co-founder of Axios, tweeted, “Astonishing. The story moved markets, set off a media frenzy, suggested worst possible outcome. This is called a massive correction, or retraction, not clarification.”
Incidentally, the liberal "fact checkers" at Politifact and Snopes have so far ignored the story.
Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted:" “the truth doesn’t fit the narrative."
A correction was not issued until hours later and well into Friday night.
The source for Ross’s report appears to have been Richard Frankel, former senior aide to Flynn and an ABC News contributor. After Ross’s segment, ABC News published an article quoting Frankel at length.
“I don’t know how much General Flynn knows about any criminal activity that took place during the campaign or in the White House,” said Frankel, who retired earlier this year from a senior role at the FBI.
“However, General Flynn was a top adviser to President Trump in the campaign and a top adviser to him when he entered into the WH so if there are bodies buried so to speak, General Flynn would know about them in my opinion.”
The Daily Caller reached Frankel after Ross’s initial report.
“I have not had discussion with the General regarding these issues. I cannot comment in that I am with ABC News,” he said through email.
DON’T ARGUE WITH TRUMP
A neighbor accuses Trump the casserole he'd given him was returned broken. They can't settle the case and so go to house of justice.
"Your Honor, none of this ever happened", replies Trump.
"Please explain", says the judge.
"First, this man has never given me any casserole",
"Second, I've returned it all in good shape",
"And third, it was already broken when he handed it to me".

Trump Wants to Deport American Indians to India?
Trump Wants to Deport American Indians to India?
On 13 February 2017, the entertainment web site The Postillon published an article reporting that President Trump had expressed an intent to deport Native Americans “back to India”:
As part of his plan to improve national security and combat illegal immigration, US President Donald Trump intends to send around 3 million American Indians back to where they came from — India. He is to sign an executive order to this effect this week.
In an interview with Fox News, President Trump described Indians living in the USA as lawless warriors with a history of attacking and killing US citizens. He claimed, “I’ve seen it in all kinds of TV documentaries. Horrible attacks on good Americans using hatchets or bows and arrows. You can’t trust these Indians.”
President Trump consulted with the appropriate members of the government and found that most Indians do not possess the relevant immigration documents. “That means they are here illegally. I had to act.”

Marco Rubio told supporters last week that GOP presidential rival Donald Trump is "always calling me 'little Marco.'"
"He is taller than me, he's like 6' 2", which is why I don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5' 2"," Rubio joked. "Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands -- "
The crowd erupted.
" -- You can't trust them," Rubio said.
Rubio’s comment may come across tasteless for a presidential hopeful, but that was not the first time someone has questioned the size of Trump’s hands.

What Caused Russian Tu-154 Plane Crash?
On 25 December 2016, a Tupolev Tu-154 jetliner of the Russian Defence Ministry crashed into the Black Sea shortly after taking off from Sochi International Airport, Russia, while en route to Khmeimim Air Base, Syria. All 92 passengers, including 64 members of the Alexandrov Ensemble choir of the Russian Armed Forces, and crew aboard died.
What Caused Russian Tu-154 Plane Crash?
The Russian Tu-154 plane crash was likely because of pilot error or technical fault, the country’s transport minister Maxim Sokolov said early Monday, ruling out terrorism as a cause. His comments were in complete contrast to earlier reports that the jet was technically sound before takeoff.
Technically speaking.... why was there no mayday call or urgent cockpit to tower report of instrumentation failure as the jetliner "plunged downward"? Still smells more like islam to me.
always suspect the CIA, unless proven otherwise....
Obombie did promise retribution for fake election hacking....
Very likely the globalists elite that wanted to start a war with Russia did this. Wouldn't be surprised at all if Obama and Clinton had a hand in this.
Donald Trump who likes very much twitter missed an opportunity to make new friends at little cost. It would have been elegant to send condolences to the families of the victims of the crash of the Russian plane. It transported all the musicians of the Russian army choirs, an extremely popular choir in Russia and even in Europe. It is a real cultural disaster for Russia. It would have been elegant to put a small kind word on twitter at least to dissipate the doubts that it could have been a coup of CIA through a cyberattack on the driver software of the plane.
"Which means that something sudden and [un]expected occurred seven minutes into the flight. So, I cannot blame the crew, and when there is a technical problem, it is seldom so sudden. [...] They have even found a man near the coast who was injured by the falling debris. Which indicates that fragments of the aircraft were scattered as they were coming down, suggesting that the aircraft exploded in the air,"
CIA is the real criminal and the son of Lucifer on earth, they killed 92 musicians on Christmas. CIA is the antichrist.
this is punishment from God
If Russian had really shot down the MH17 then this is the absolute meaning of Karma.
The Russians thought it was a passenger plane and shot it down by mistake.

KGB, FBI and CIA
The KGB, the FBI and the CIA are all trying to prove that they are the best at catching criminals.
The Secretary General of the UN decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it.
The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that the rabbit does not exist.
The FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and make no apologies: the rabbit had it coming.
The KGB goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling: “Okay! Okay! I’m a rabbit! I’m a rabbit!”
Here's one from Hungary: The lion calls the congress of forest animals and declares: thanks to the tireless work of our scientists, we now know two times two is six.
Everyone claps loudly. Only the old rabbit sighs to himself, the way I learned in school, two times two is four.
Two giant timber wolves appear, haul the rabbit away and noone sees the rabbit for years.
A few years later, the lion calls the congress of forest animals and declares: thanks to the tireless work of our scientists, we now know two times two is five.
Everyone claps loudly. Only the old rabbit, quite haggard now, sighs to himself, the way I learned in school, two times two is four.
Two giant timber wolves appear and invite the rabbit to the pub across the street and tell him: - Look comrade, you can think whatever you want but do not be so loud about it. Or do you want it to be six again?
An Englishman, a Frenchman, and a Russian were once discussing the meaning of true happiness.
The Englishman said, "True happiness, my friends, is rising early on a frosty fall morning, getting on top of a good horse, and galloping off behind the hounds in pursuit of the fox. A hard ride over fields and fences and rivulets until the fox is brought down. A ride back with the ears and the tail and then sitting before a roaring fire with a glass of good port. Ah, that is true happiness."
The Frenchman said, "That is not true happiness. That is merely animal pleasure. True happiness is meeting with the love of your life, having an excellent meal in a topnotch restaurant with champagne, and then retiring to a wonderful hotel room, where you can make frantic and impassioned love all night long. Ah, that is true happiness.
The Russian said, "That is not true happiness. That is merely a good time. True happiness comes when you are sitting in your apartment after a hard day at the factory, your little Ivan on your knee, and reading your copy of Pravda. There comes a knock at the door. Three men in ill-fitting brown suits come storming in and say 'Stepan Stepanovich,' and you say, 'He lives in the rooms upstairs.' Ah, that is true happiness!"

"Right," says Wlodek, "I want to make sure my 50 zlotys are safe. Like, what happens if someone robs you and takes everything in your vault?"
"Oh, don't worry about that!" says the smooth bank manager. "The main branch in the city would cover you!"
"Okay," says Wlodek. "But suppose the whole bank went bust? I know these things happen."
"Well," says the bank manager. "People have a right to be worried, of course. So that you can feel completely secure, the Polish Central Bank still guarantees your savings."
"But suppose the Polish Central Bank ran out of money?" asks Wlodek. "What would happen then?"
"This is very hypothetical," says the bank manager. "But if it ever happened, we have a treaty with the Soviet Union. They would still make sure you weren't out of pocket."
"But what if the Soviet Union went bust?" asks Wlodek stubbornly.
The bank manager sighs. "Look," he says. "Wouldn't that be worth 50 zlotys?"

Honecker walks into his office, looks out the window and says "Good morning, dear sun!" and the sun replies "Good morning Erich!"

Finally, at the end of the day Honecker walks to his window and says "Good evening, dear sun!". But the sun doesn't say anything, so he says once more "Good evening, dear sun! Is something wrong?". The sun finally replies, "Kiss my ass I'm in the west now!"

No political jokes, please !
Three men in a platzkart train are telling political jokes on their way to Moscow.
The fourth is coming in and he hisses "Oh my, do not tell those, you'll be taken".
"Oh, come on, man, says one of the three".
The alerting guy than goes to the stewardess and asks for four cups of tea delivered to that platzkart seats in exactly 4 minutes.
Four minutes later he continues to hiss on his travel companions "Guys, if you won't stop to tell political jokes, they will take you!", getting the same "Come on, man" in response.
"All right he says, look here". He stands up near the small lamp in the corner and says "Comrade mayor, four teas to platzkart seats 14, 15, 16 and 17, please".
The stewardess brings the tea. Everyone shuts up, and soon goes asleep.
In the morning, our hero discovers that his three travel companions' seats are empty. He asks stewardess whether they took off in Tver?
"No", the stewardess says, "they were taken".
"And why they did not took me too?". "Because comrade mayor liked your joke about the tea very much".
