The Washington machine has been ratcheted up to full power. Groups from both sides have converged with the main stream media to bring down a sitting president.
Trumps team is trying to play by the rules, they terminated Flynn, AG Sessions recuses himself, they do their best to appease the GOPe, all the while the “Machine” is taking these offerings and twisting them into a political weaponry. It’s past time trying to play fair, it’s time to get down and dirty. The swamp. aka the “Machine”, is a filthy corrupt extortion ring that has been pilfering the countries treasure for decades.
The government behemoth has no edges, it’s a circular being that absorbs scandals back into itself where people like Lois Lerner can walk away unscathed. I can’t think of one person who has been a part of a congressional investigation that has been removed from their position, lost their pension, publicly shamed and banished from ever working in government again, it just doesn’t happen.
Trump is facing a deep state and media that’s not worried about repercussions. If you tell a lie enough times people begin to believe it.
Wolf Blitzer whispers impeachment.
Rachel Maddow ponders impeachment
Anderson Cooper wonders why impeachment proceeding haven’t begun
Dem Congressman demands impeachment from the House floor
Jon McCain blurts out “Watergate” in reference to Trump
A Republican Congressman gets on board with impeachment talk
I wouldn’t say that Trump’s in over his head, I would say he is fighting an uphill battle. The amount of resources being brought to bear against him is enormous, his people may be savvy but the rats are clever, they are bringing body blows while Trump throws haymakers, problem is he’s not landing them.
I hope he keeps fighting but he may want to re-think his strategy, you can’t fight fair when the other side has no issues with hitting below the belt.
This isn’t a smear campaign, this is an organized coup by the Washington machine that refuses to concede power to a political newbie like Trump.
Lest we forget, this is what the rats in Washington look like

Just a few thoughts on this second round series featuring the Warriors and Jazz.
First off, I’m from Utah. I’ve followed the Jazz ever since they moved from New Orleans. I’ve seen the bad times to the good times and back to the bad times, I’m not a fanatic just a fan and I don’t give the Jazz much of a chance in this series. That being said I have a few complaints.
Last night ESPNSJW had a quick preview of the series. They joked about Salt Lake City having “zero” night life, they lamented the only way to have fun is to go to Vegas in between games, they even had a graphic showing a twelve hour trip to Vegas from Salt Lake and the cost to lease a car to get there. Well, it takes five hours to get to Vegas from Salt Lake, I have taken that trip more times than I can count, it never varies unless there’s weather.
The arrogant asses at ESPN just threw out a number because in their minds who cares, it’s Utah, whose gonna fact check. Sound familiar?
Next, the Golden State players have jumped on the Salt Lake City bash fest. Steph Curry say’s in his snide way he will go snowboarding, forward Matt Barnes said “there’s no nightlife in Utah.” Forward Andre Iguodala said being in Utah “can kind of lull you to sleep” and the SLC vibe is “just like, ‘Man let’s just get out of here.'”
I don’t get the insults about the city, plenty of places to party in Salt Lake but that’s not the point. This is the Golden Boys from California against the upstart team from Utah. West coast against fly over country, hip millionaires that do commercials and endorsements versus buttoned down wannabes from Mormon country. High life versus family life. New York versus Indiana. It’s kind of a microcosm of the current divide in the country.
Personally I could care less about what the opposing players think. When Utah sent the Clippers packing in game seven Sunday night I was amused noting that Jay Z and Beyonce were on the front row. They had to do the walk of shame out of the arena because the other Golden Boys from LA La Land were just dismissed from the playoffs. If I get nothing more out of this years Utah team that image was enough for me.
Golden State has built a wonderful team and they’re fun to watch, I can say that with indifference to the Oakland-San Francisco area, I have no reason to go there, never have. I would imagine that Golden State players would trade their state tax liabilities, property taxes, and cost of living for Utahs, but I digress.
I will enjoy the series whether it’s a sweep or Utah wins a few games. I give Utah little to no chance of actually winning the series, and that’s OK. I still have a wonderful place to live regardless of the weird liquor laws and California will still be California, my life won’t change because of a few basketball games.

All of these people recusing themselves from various investigations is infuriating. Nunes being the latest, Sessions, and of course Mike Flynn being let go just gives credence to the Democrats claims that the Trumpapalooza tour is in disarray.
The thing that I don’t understand is, if Trump is such a fighter why allow the lefties to run his bus off the road? We/I wanted a brawler in the White House, somebody with some balls to take on the left with brass knuckles and a bad attitude. Unfortunately, starting with Flynn, were watching the left and their media bully their way around Washington as if they are still untouchable. How can this happen when Republicans have what they have always coveted, the house, senate, and White House, all under their control.
I know that they went the “Nuclear Option” on Gorsuch which does show some semblance of wielding power but that should have been a no brainer. How long before the next
whispers leaks of a Trump roadie getting railroaded off the team with some bullshit tactic by the left? They’ve gotten away with three victories so far against what I thought was a formidable opponent, a Republican majority.
Time for Republicans to grow a pair and start busting heads. Expose the reports Susan Rice scrubbed, call out Schumer and his minions and demand proof of Trump/Russia collusion, if they can’t produce it, demand an apology on the Senate floor to be written into the federal registry. If no wrong doing is found by Mike Flynn reinstate him in a position that was vacated by an Obama holdover that was fired by Trump. Let Schumer and Pelosi know that any more shenanigans will result in charges by Trumps DOJ against Hillary and her bathroom server.
Quit acting like Republicans have some moral authority to do the right thing, this is a street fight and the left is cheating, time to grab the ball bat and start fighting dirty.
“Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”
“Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan Statement:
“Devin Nunes has earned my trust over many years for his integrity and dedication to the critical work that the intelligence community does to keep America safe. He continues to have that trust, and I know he is eager to demonstrate to the Ethics Committee that he has followed all proper guidelines and laws.
In the meantime, it is clear that this process would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in our election. Chairman Nunes has offered to step aside as the lead Republican on this probe, and I fully support this decision. Chairman Mike Conaway, a senior member of the Committee, will now lead this investigation in the House. I am confident that he will oversee a professional investigation into Russia’s actions and follow the facts wherever they lead.”
Interim Chairman Mike Conway Statement:
“I have been a member of the House Intelligence Committee for over eight years now, and it is a responsibility I take with the utmost seriousness. My profession as a CPA and auditor has taught me to be objective and methodical, and that is how I intend to help lead this investigation. I am confident that Ranking Member Schiff and I will be able to work together to conduct an effective, bipartisan investigation.
“I must emphasize that this is a temporary position- Chairman Nunes has my full support, and I am confident these charges levied by outside activists will be proven false. I thank Speaker Ryan and Chairman Nunes for entrusting me, along with Representatives Rooney and Gowdy, with this matter of critical importance to our national security.”

Our government started with roughly 50 employees in three departments. All government employees, which numbered nearly 4 million in 1939, number over 22 million today, with nearly three million federal employees and the rest state and local (and that excludes military).

The overwhelming majority of those federal employees who donated to a presidential campaign, more than 95 percent, gave money to Hillary Clinton. Ninety-nine percent of contributions from State Department employees went to Clinton in the 2016 elections. You can be sure they aren’t excited to be working for Trump. keep reading….
I can’t repeat this enough. Unions representing public service employees should be eliminated.
Unions pay into campaign funds of politicians who in turn bargain with the same unions on benefits and pay for public employees funded by the taxpayer.
Private companies held captive by unions make decisions based on company finances, politicians and unions bargain with taxpayer money with no regard for cost as long as the quid pro quo continues.
Then you get this shit;
The National Treasury Employees Union Chapter 280 sent an invitation to the rally on the EPA email system during work hours, encouraging employees to rally for “respect.”
“Please join NTEU members from across the country as we rally at the U.S. Capitol for fair pay, a secure retirement, and respect,” the email, which was sent Wednesday, states.
“We really need you to come for this,” the union said. “Now, more than ever it’s important that EPA employees stand together.”
The rally comes at a time when government bureaucrats, including career employees for the EPA, are vowing to resist the new Trump administration.
In an unprecedented effort, EPA employees called their senators last week pressing them to vote against Scott Pruitt as the new EPA administrator. The New York Times called it “a remarkable display of activism and defiance that presages turbulent times ahead for the EPA.” Pruitt was confirmed by a vote of 52-46. here…
And this is what the taxpayer gets for our hard earned money.by jeffli6 with 1 comment
Back in the late 70’s early 80’s I recall vividly that I was concerned about polar bears, I don’t know why, it must have been something I heard or read during my youth. I checked the google machine and found little to no information or articles from that far back on the subject. Wiki has a polar bear information page and there are a few other mentions about populations but nothing I could find to acknowledge my worries at that time.
I started raising my family about that same time so my concerns about arctic wildlife ended rather abruptly, but from time to time I thought about the bears. The point being is I was influenced as a young man or child that the polar bear was endangered, no facts, no figures, it just was….and I believed it.
It’s 2017 and there is a large population of adults, teenagers, and children that have their own worries. No facts, no figures, it’s just the way it is….and they believe it. Leftist propaganda running rampant from elementary school to college have this generation worried, worried about the LGTB community, open borders, global warming, racism, ect. all through the skewed lens of a liberal education, not to mention Hollywood and the main stream media.
It took decades for the old hippies to indoctrinate all these people but they were very successful, academia has been consumed by liberals. It’s gonna take a generation to reverse the propaganda that the new students are having shoved down their throats as we speak. The snowflakes of this generation are the byproduct of their liberal education and they don’t even know it. If there was a physical scar for a liberal lobotomy there would be a bunch of scary people walking around. But instead of a scar there’s just a bunch of mentally altered snowflakes walking around that think they know everything because their angry lesbian feminist college professor gave them a
participation trophy diploma and boom….your kids Rachel Maddow.
One republican administration isn’t going to change fifty years of indoctrination, nor will it stop the millions of Maddows currently wrapping their progressive tentacles around your kids and grand kids. One thing I do know, if we don’t reverse this liberal subversion quickly, whether or not the polar bears are in danger somebodies gonna be breaking windows, blocking traffic, and protesting for the rights of the polar bear.

With all of the bullshit the left is throwing out there, companies who are liberally biased or scared to offend the moonbats are taking a stand with one side or the other. Nordstroms decision to drop Ivanka’s clothing line is as transparently political as the 9th Circus court ruling against the travel ban. With all of these companies liberally lobotomized by decades of progressive indoctrination there is only one way to deal with the shenanigans. Don’t do business with them.
Kelloggs, who came out against conservatives and their values, is shuttering 39 distribution centers and laying off 1,100 people. It’s a bummer for their employees who are getting the axe, but the people in charge should have worried more about their employees than their political ideology. It my be sheik and hip to come out against Trump and conservatives but it also has consequences.
Liberals are ecstatic that Nordstoms has dropped the daughter of the Presidents wares, but with every action there is a reaction. The Under Armour CEO has come out backing Trump, Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors is considering dropping them as sponsors. Well, I used to enjoy watching Curry play basketball, I didn’t care that he was a big fan of Obama, I do care that he is making a political stance. Bye bye watching Golden State games, hello Under Armour, I will be purchasing my sports gear from you now…exclusively.
It’s very simple, you don’t have to riot and break windows, they are replaceable. But when share holders and board members see their profits tank because one of their lefty administrators decides to go all social justice warrior with their brand, they may think long and hard before they mix business with politics.by jeffli6 with 3 comments
