Skull and Bonesman and Deep State traitor to America, John Kerry. This meeting constitutes a serious crime, a violation of the Logan Act.

On Saturday former Obama Secretary of State was seen dining with several Iranian regime officials.

An onlooker snapped this photo as Kerry left the restaurant.

Jason Osborne, a former Senior Advisor to President Donald Trump’s campaign, posted this tweet earlier today:

So John Kerry just left a meeting @ L’Avenue in Paris w/3 Iranians. A friend was sitting next to their table and heard JK blasting @realDonaldTrump. The Iranians had a 5 person security detail and left in diplomatic vehicles. Is he FARA registered?

Newsweek today: “Trump repeatedly accused the former Obama administration's secretary of state of violating the Logan Act—a federal law dating back to 1799 that criminalizes negotiations by unauthorized persons with foreign governments currently in dispute with the United States.

"What I'd like to see with Iran, I'd like to see them call me," Trump said Thursday. "You know John Kerry speaks to them a lot, John Kerry tells them not to call. That's a violation of the Logan Act."

What a press onslaught today.

Meanwhile, AG Barr and his team are quietly setting everything in place before they attack. It reminds me of the US military setting up right before the Iraq war invasion. (btw - I hated that war, but that's another issue.)

Has anyone noticed that, bluster-wise and clueless-wise, the fake news media and the anti-Trumpers are sounding like Baghdad Bob these days?

S,

Robert used to be a friend of mine and we are still cordial.

It's a term of affection (even when we disagree).

Lighten up.

In fact, I can do this the other way. Why do you feel the need to do micromanaging PC language control freak behavior on everyone?

You make terrible presuppositions about people you don't even know.

Is this fair? Broward County and Palm Beach County will get all the benefits of immigration to themselves.

 

expect two planeloads of immigrants each week, starting in about two weeks. The 270 weekly passengers — about 1,000 each month — would be split, with half going to Palm Beach County and half to Broward.

“The federal government isn’t offering to help,” he said. “No accommodations for transportation leaving there. No accommodations for shelter or a place to live. Just no real plan what is going to happen to these people,” Bradshaw said.

Housing, food, health care and schooling for the children will be up to local communities, he and Bogen said.

I asked if there was an end date to this and they said no,” Bradshaw said in the news conference.

There’s always a lot of insults and name-calling going on in politics. President Trump is good at it—he is able to crystallize his opponents with memes and labels that stick. Hillary was called ‘Crooked Hillary’ and it summed her up nicely. Trump calls Biden ‘Sleepy Joe,’ which to me seems to be an upgrade over his other moniker—“Creepy Joe.”

Hillary made a big mistake when she smeared Trump supporters as ‘deplorables.’ This did not help her win over anyone right of center. Joe Biden, not to be outdone by Hillary, downgraded Trump supporters to ’the dregs of society.’

HELP LAUNCH WEAPONIZED MAGA CARTOONS- GET READY FOR 2020 BY SUPPORTING BEN GARRISON CARTOONS- DONATE NOW

These are all mild insults compared to the smears that gush from the mouths and pens of the Left. They routinely call Trump and his supporters ‘racists,’ ‘white nationalists,’ ‘bigots,’ the ‘KKK,’ and ‘Nazis.’ This kind of invective only underlines a fact: The radical socialist Left has no argument. After all, socialism goes against reason, logic, human nature, and nature itself. History has proven its failure time and time again.

There’s a reason the left uses words such has ‘racist’ or ‘Nazi’ without any evidence whatsoever. Those words are meant to dehumanize opponents. Once people are stripped of humanity, they become ‘monsters’ and it then becomes acceptable to use violence against them. The Catholic Church once used this tactic to torture and murder Protestants. They simply labeled them has ‘heretics,’ which made them synonymous with demons. Eradicating demons is a good thing.

GRRRGRAPHICS IS NOW ON SUBSCRIBESTAR, A FREE SPEECH SUPPORTING ALTERNATIVE TO PATREON, SUPPORT US THERE! CLICK TO JOIN

Being against socialism, globalism, and open borders are positions now seen as ‘racist’ by many on the left. Trump supporters are the new heretics. It’s why we see vicious attacks against people wearing MAGA hats.

It’s why we see bike locks used to crack skulls during protests. It’s why we now see milkshakes being thrown. Tossing them at people you disagree with has become the new trend among the left. While not dangerously violent, getting hit by one is definitely messy and humiliating. Burger King even indirectly virtue signaled for their use—and that’s shameful.

As the next presidential election approaches, I expect the divide to widen and the name-calling to intensify. Sticks and stones may break bones and words can sometimes lead toward using sticks and stones. I’d rather stick with rational debate.

From "Time" online today: Although Pelosi has urged Democrats to stay away from impeachment talk for now, she did tell them that that Trump’s all-out fight against congressional oversight and other actions seemed to her to amount to a cover-up. end quote

Any new thoughts about Limbaugh alleging The Dossier was paid for by the Dems and specifically by Old Hickory Clinton . . .  and every Democrat and some deep state Republicans involved knew that The Dossier was a pack of lies from the beginning but still went forward with it, just to harm the President?

And does anyone have any new legal theories about the Dem’s talking about impeachment again? In other words, if a person knows a document is a pack of lies is it impeachable to scuttle it? I don’t think so. You are scuttling a lie . . . not the truth. It’s akin to listening to a liar, throwing up your hands and then shouting, “Oh shut up!”

Two trillion dollars on the line and Pelosi shoots off her mouth right before the meeting.

I know she did it on purpose for show in order to control the division in her party , but she couldn't speak at the presser afterwards without stuttering all over the place.

After all, two trillion is two trillion.

Her money people must be overjoyed it went down the tubes for God knows how long.

From the article below: “Everyone knows that the prospects of a successful move to impeach and remove the president from office by two thirds of the Senate finding that he has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors, as the Constitution requires, are less than zero.”

I think I detected very serious outrage from President Trump tonight. It’s closed up in the article below and I deleted a few paragraphs about Nixon. Peter

For Democrats, the Party’s Over by Conrad Black at The National Review. If the Democrats are really tempted by impeachment, bring it on. Since the day after the 2016 election they have been threatening this, placing their chips on the Russian-collusion fantasy and then on the phantasmagoric charade of obstruction of justice. The attorney general accurately gave the ingredients of the offense of obstruction of justice in his four-page summary of the Mueller report: a corrupt act for corrupt purposes in contemplation of a legal proceeding. The attorney general, William Barr, the then deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, and the Justice Department counsel concurred that none of the elements was present in the conduct of the president as recounted by Mueller. The dream died, except in the febrile imagination of the Democrats, who launched an unfounded attack on the attorney general’s integrity. Everyone knows that the prospects of a successful move to impeach and remove the president from office by two thirds of the Senate finding that he has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors, as the Constitution requires, are less than zero.

The turn of the tables has been exquisite and complete. The idea that anyone ever nominated by a serious American political party would collude with a foreign power to rig a presidential election is insane. No one, not even a scoundrel such as Aaron Burr or a third-party naif such as Henry Wallace, would have dreamt of such a thing. But in their desperation and denial after the unimaginable victory of someone pledged to clean out the entire political class that has ruled America since the Reagan years, the Democrats paid $10 million for a false dossier on Trump, corrupted and politicized the intelligence services and the FBI, set up an echo chamber of self-verification with the national media Trump had already reviled as dishonest, and provoked the creation of a special counsel to look into Trump–Russian collusion. The Republican congressional leaders sat on their hands to see if the leader none of them had supported would be impeached, and the Democrats and their scripted media choristers smugly carped and waited like noisy crocodiles for their victim to be reduced to inert helplessness. Guess what.

Mueller did his best, with a character assassination of the president from selected Star Chamber testimony of no legal relevance and an attempt to pull the pin on a damp grenade by citing a series of legally innocuous facts and declaring an inability to exonerate for obstruction, though collusion with Russia was hopeless. Mueller knew that that was not his brief — no one had asked him to do anything except state whether or not there was valid reason to impeach the president. His spurious and cowardly recitation of legal fineries that fulfill none of the requirements for obstruction combined with a sorrowful statement of inability to exonerate on that charge is, in fact, an exoneration. It was the best Mueller, a slab-faced Trump-hater who assembled a famished wolf-pack of pathological Trump-haters as his investigative team, could do: He failed the Democratic lynch mob because he couldn’t find any evidence, and he failed the country in not producing a fully honest and impartial report. The Democrats are left at a crossroads: keep swinging like punch-drunk prizefighters lashing out when they hear the bell of a passing streetcar, or abandon the impeachment ship while there is still room in the lifeboats.

The president has won his spurs with his own party. While they waited as mute and spineless spectators, he wrestled the Russian-collusion leopard off his back and slew it. He is right to stonewall the Democratic House committees on their much-touted blizzard of subpoenas. The porcine judiciary chairman, Jerry Nadler, a virulent enemy of Trump for 30 years, splutters with righteousness, but he has no legal right nor the decisive political support to start all over again after Mueller has come up empty-handed. President Truman determined in reference to the House Un-American Affairs Committee, and President Eisenhower stated in reference to the various Joseph R. McCarthy hearings, that they would not tolerate any federal executive-branch employee’s being subpoenaed about any advice they gave the president, that they would accept and honor no such subpoenas, and that anyone who responded to such subpoenas would be fired at once. This was established pre-Watergate practice and is sound law. No one should imagine that Nadler is more virtuous than McCarthy or the other red-baiters.

. . . . The response of the executive branch to this threat has evolved and become more resourceful, like immunity to an affliction after recurrences of it. Where President Nixon spared the country the agony after it had made probably terminal inroads, President Reagan in the Iran-Contra affair, a minor matter involving a popular president near the end of his term, with plausible deniability, just said “I don’t recall,” and it passed. President Clinton, as Whitewater was transmogrified into the red dress and likely perjury to a grand jury, fought it out, and his opponents got a 50–50 split on one count, but did not come close to removal. Now, finally, comes a president armed with a decisive legal and political advantage who is happy to meet his accusers and massacre them if they charge. If Speaker Pelosi can’t restrain the far-left imbeciles from voting impeachment, they will not even hold the Democrats in the Senate. There is no evidence to convict this president of anything, and the country will be outraged.

The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner. They must put up or shut up, impeach or back down. The president has called their bluff and the game is about to end, either an embarrassing defeat for the Democrats or political annihilation. Pelosi is no galvanizing leader, but she is a cagey veteran. She has tried to warn her more-furious caucus members of what they are getting into but is obviously having trouble controlling her partisans. I assume contemplation of what awaits will induce the House Democrats to opt for a trip to the woodshed over the political gallows, but it would be impetuous to bet a five-cent cigar on their collective judgment. Their attempt at regicide has failed completely; it’s still a bit of a long shot, but they might just manage suicide, not from justified conscientious shame, but out of witless antagonism. One way or the other, the papier-mâché Damoclean sword of impeachment will disintegrate just as the prominent Democrats who grievously abused their offices in trying to destroy Trump get ready for their own trials. Both sides come to bat in this legal game, and the Democrats have struck out.

Thanks again William. I went to the site and Pierre is really funny. And so is our guy. He just posted an obviously fake video of Pelosi that makes her look drunk and feeble. Ha!

I wonder what life would be like if we had “stayed with England” like Canada and Australia? Are we freer than countries affiliated with Great Britain today? I suppose so. So home, home on the range, and “Give me liberty or give me death!” But England and its colonies didn’t turn out so bad.

I have been watching “The Crown” and “Victoria” on our public broadcasting channel. On “Victoria” some episodes were from 1848, and England seemed more civilized than we freer people did back then. What a weird dilemma. I don’t know. If we wanted a monarch in our country’s history could we do better than Vicky or Eliza? Maybe not.

If anyone wants to see a very funny skit from Saturday Night Live just type in something like “Lindsey Lohan pretending to be Hermione Granger from Harry Potter” and watch it. Behzinga! Yow! That soup is hot, hot, hot! Obviously I am also a big fan of classy English Lit like we get from J.K. Rowling. I had a bad thought when I watched it though. I remember she was arrested for DUI and possession and I think those male SNL guys might have corrupted her. Boo! Hiss! Peter     

An excerpt from Pierre Trudeau’s famous Washington Press Club speech regarding Canadian policy and the United States, comparing the situation to "sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly or even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt."

Is there any fading or growth of the impeachment cancer? I got this link from The White House at The White House info@mail.whitehouse.gov I have closed it up and gotten rid of some pictures, etc. Peter

CNN. Updated May 30, 2019 Carrie Sheffield. Despite spin from congressional Democrats (and Republican Rep. Justin Amash), special counsel Robert Mueller was not secretly gunning for impeachment in his statement on Wednesday. And it would be divisive for the nation and a boon to our global competitors if Democrats choose to hobble our national agenda with superfluous, partisan impeachment.

During his press conference, Mueller said that Attorney General Robert Barr acted in "good faith" in his handling of the report. He also said that he was resigning from the Justice Department and returning to private life. Clearly, Mueller is moving on and it's time for us to move on as a country, too. We should focus on stopping Russian intervention in the 2020 elections. Parsing a non-convincing argument about a hypothetical obstruction case -- one not definitively outlined by Mueller and that the Department of Justice has completed -- is a waste of time.

Former George W. Bush White House spokesman Ari Fleischer accurately characterized Mueller's statement and overall behavior in a tweet: "Mueller is the anti-Comey. He wants no PR ... And (on Wednesday) he made no new news..."

Mueller's statement and the reactions to it were a continued example of a political Rorschach test: People who despise the President saw it as further ammunition and supporters saw absolute vindication. Regardless of one's views, the political reality is that House Democrats would be foolish -- and Russians will rejoice -- if they push forward with impeachment.

By a nearly 20-point margin, the American people do not want impeachment, according to polling by the Washington Post and ABC News. Let's move on and focus on issues that actually help the country, like opioid crisis alleviation, national security, infrastructure and health care. Strategically, Democrats seeking to take back the White House would be diminishing their 2020 prospects if they ramrod through impeachment. According to the Washington Post, "about 6 in 10 independents are against impeachment now." Pursuing impeachment could cause Democrats to lose some of these voters, putting their goal of defeating Trump in 2020 in jeopardy.

It appears Speaker Nancy Pelosi so far isn't part of the impeachment chorus, yet a half-baked, ongoing investigation would likely have the same effect on the country's morale as impeachment. Continuing to undermine our President's good faith efforts to improve our economy, protect against foreign threats, reform our immigration system and more is the opposite of uniting our country at this polarizing time. On issues like criminal justice reform, combating the global criminalization of the LGBTI community, suicide prevention and more, the Trump administration has shown its willingness to work across the aisle. It's time for Democrats to follow suit.

Do we have any constitutional or budgetary process experts at OL? I have heard that President Trump is spending all the tariff proceed billions as he sees fit (this has been going on with China for a while now, it’s many many billions) because the purse–string control Congress has only extends to monies raised internally.

On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,..

Cool.

I used to like Noonan. I remember an article I really liked about manliness in the culture. She used the example of a guy who decked a shark in the nose to save his woman and saying that was a real man. 

Then I saw her interviewed on TV looking down her nose at the mic as she spoke in a vague affected upper-class accent.

Then I started paying attention to her words and she did seem simplistic--often striving way too hard to sound profound when no profundity was called for.

Then Trump happened and she went haywire.

:)

After reading her new stuff, I lost all respect for her.

Now, for me, she's one other elitist idiot who used to make sense but now doesn't.

I am considering whether I will subscribe to Robert Tracinski again. But I am not sure. I keep thinking he will become a fan of freedom, prosperity, and safety even though he personally does not like President Trump. We shall see. Peter

Good evening folks. This is George Carling, your hippy dippy weatherman with my morning report. It will be partly cloudy in the morning, with the economy looking healthy. It will become cloudy in the afternoon and the gross domestic product is slightly down because of the discussions of tariffs with Mexico and China. The low will be around 55 F. tonight with winds from the South at 5 to 10 mph while the inflation rate remains steady, here and in Hong Kong. Economic growth could reach 4 percent by the end of 2019. So America and Canada are in the goldilocks zone for weather and prosperity with no damaging gusts or busts forecast.
