Good morning. I don't have time right now to read any further in the thread but wanted to dash off this response. * * * God bless ya, RG, but the day the JEF gets indicted is the day I win the $348M lottery. PS I’ve never bought a lottery ticket in my life. No way on God’s green earth that happens. Alas... Posted by: lyle | October 16, 2018 at 09:32 PM I presume you know I'm having a bit of fun with this, right Lyle? This is my version of CAPS LOCK GUS entering the lake and making some ripples. And in having this fun, I acknowledge what you write is likely true. But I also assert this is precisely what the Obama crowd relies upon with a certainty that mirrors the certainty of the Clinton crowd. Do you acknowledge the Clinton crowd are now in serious jeopardy? Do you see the deal offered to James Wolfe? He's a key player among the Bottom Bitches because he had illegal dealings with Senators/Congress, with the press, lobbyists, Team Clinton *and* Team Obama. People are curiously howling about why has he only been charged with lying to the FBI. Is it really that hard to figure out? And if it isn't that hard to figure out (and, for the record, it isn't), might it be time to wake up? No matter how many times people doubt Donald Trump and wonder what is Jeff Sessions doing, the answer remains the same: he's doing his damn job. Thus, is it really that hard to believe Donald Trump isn't bound by a conventional wisdom that says Barack Obama is untouchable? That Jeff Sessions, in fact, would have precisely the same view? Not for me, it isn't. But I hear you. We'll see how it shakes out. It remains remarkable to me how many people, in the face of obvious and incredibly disruptive political change, a change that has aroused the nation, keep insisting on relying upon old political conventional wisdoms with respect to what will or won't happen, what is and is not possible. The deal offered to Wolfe is a delicious clue, if only you'll allow yourself to see it. It might be time, gang, to take a step back and take a fresh look at the possibilities.

Do these criminals have a fool proof excuse for why they spied on the Trump campaign. I don't know if it's fool-proof, but many of them can say that they really really thought the Russkies had infiltrated the Trump campaign, and they were just doing their patriotic duty. It would be difficult to prove otherwise, except in the most extreme cases. Posted by: Extraneus | October 16, 2018 at 02:26 PM No, I don't think it would. IMHO the difficulty comes in forcing the top-heavy prosecutorial move(s) far too early, something too many on this board seem to have been A.O.K. with. Their path forward is to pit the Team Obama Bottom Bitches vs Team Clinton Bottom Bitches, recognizing that they are two very different groups, and then let the investigatory nature of things take its course . . . pitting "teams" against one another. This has, in fact, clearly been done as far as I'm concerned. Team Clinton is more guilty, more compromised, much more exposed -- right ??? -- and a much easier prey, given (let's face it) that she was never President of the United States. Sufficient numbers of the Obama folks may be in all kinds of trouble, and certainly will be punished, but the Clinton folks are totally screwed. Sundance barked up this tree today, right? 1. For those who don't know, when Hillary left the Obama administration January 2013, she made a political agreement with POTUS team to insert John Podesta to watch out for her future 2016 election interests. That's the origin of "two camps". pic.twitter.com/Sb3hmiweaZ— TheLastRefuge (@TheLastRefuge2) October 16, 2018 9. If the "Spygate" fiasco fully explodes (still TBD), it will be team Clinton's people who will be exposed in the collateral damage. Team Obama will escape with the help of the media and a more favorable DC alliance willing to protect them. Anyone on Team Clinton knows this. pic.twitter.com/OGqdr6Qs7x— TheLastRefuge (@TheLastRefuge2) October 16, 2018 I know I'm likely in the extreme minority on this issue but for me the only remaining substantive question is what does President Trump want to do with Barack Hussein Obama. This may be outrageously wrongheaded on my part (I know, I know, what's new) but . . . given his very successful outreach to the black community, given the strategically brilliant prison reform effort he will likely support in some form or another, given the DOJ push to help in Chicago [notice how much the Administration has zeroed in on the carnage in Chicago; that's a bullet aimed directly at the heart of Obama] along a wide range of other factors, I think he's going to juxtapose all of his Trump Administration activity addressing SUBSTANTIVE issues within the black community in his first 2 or 3 years with what BigBabyBarry did *not* do in 8 full years. This will ultimately allow him the option of doing what I was convinced he would never do: indict Barack Obama and then, perhaps, extend mercy (meaning, offer a pardon) to Barack Obama.

Good morning. Well, the kid is still without power. The city has announced 90% of customers have been restored; guess I'll have to be satisfied to be that top 1% guy! * * * I see the Democrats are still whistling past their graveyard but all you really need to know, as far as I'm concerned, is this: The New York Times called Florida's 27th Congressional District "the best Democratic pick-up opportunity in the country" because of Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's retirement. In the 2016 presidential election, Florida CD27 favored Hillary Clinton by 20 freaking points, her highest margin for *any* Republican-held district (Cook Political Report’s Partisan Voting Index says the District is a +5 Democrat lean). And a quick note that may be relevant: Miami-Dade County is the only one of Florida’s 67 counties that does *not* have an elected Supervisor of Elections; the County mayor (a Republican) appointed the current supervisor. So, it's "the best Democratic pick-up opportunity in the country," huh? Well, this poll says the Democrats are toast: https://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000166-6518-d0b1-a57e-ed9bb4d40001 http://floridapolitics.com/archives/277425-poll-shalala-in-trouble She's more than likely going to lose because she's about as unlikeable as Hillary is. But even if she wins . . . she'll only barely squeak by. There is no blue wave; the possibility of a Red Tsunami, however, is still out there. It may not be probability but it remains a very real possibility.

Trump is probably trading RR's black hat in for a MAGA hat now that he has some leverage. "Rod, you did some bad things.. Very bad. But I always find the best in people and bring it out. Will you join me in MAGA? Or do I destroy you?" 4Ders will say this relationship began when RR was a newborn. Posted by: Threadkiller | October 09, 2018 at 09:33 AM Dadgum, TK. You're still mad at not getting an invite to the 4D Pre-Launch Party ??? For realz !?! I told you, man . . . OPSEC !!! * * * I just got off the phone with my 92 year old mother, who says she is blind and deaf, and pretty much is. She started by saying how upset she was about Kavanaugh, (that he got in) then turned to how worried she is about climate change, and finished by saying that Trump is a puppet being controlled by rich men. I asked their names and her reply was: "Follow the money". I said that wasn't happening and she replied - "yeah I'm sure that's what Fox says." Sometimes it's hell being me. Posted by: Jane | October 09, 2018 at 02:21 PM Ha !!! They just can't let go, Jane. They just can't. Another damn Hurricane is about to bear down near us. All of you people with property on 30A or who love to vacation there . . . that beautiful beach may be in trouble. Or, maybe, Panama City Beach. So it goes.

I had a bunch of comments but I've flushed them in favor of this: * * * What you have with Trump and his team of military leaders is a fusion of both business and military subject matter experts who have developed a long term strategic plan to implement the MAGA agenda and defeat the domestic enemies of the US (Progressives, Deep State, Uniparty Establishment, etc). That gives me a lot of optimism for the future. Posted by: Tom R | October 03, 2018 at 12:49 PM I think that deserves a . . . Boom BooYahKahShah Boom Boom Boom !!! I suspect a bunch of people here are going to be embarrassed by their incredible negativity in the face of what is the rather obvious success of a brilliant plan. Especially some here who are overly reliant upon business practices and what has previously passed for standard politics. And yes, JMHanes, Tom R's experience with military planners *does* make his own expertise more salient than that of others on the issues before us. It's the primary reason Trump won, and it's likely the primary reason Trump was recruited to run. Our political class, dominated by Ivy League idiots, didn't know how to engage the economic war being waged on us, and -- in fact -- didn't know how to acknowledge it. Our military guys didn't have that problem and after Benghazi . . . enough of them said, to hell with this bullshit. Enter Donald Trump. The world has changed. Y'all might as well go ahead and acknowledge that. Trump, with tremendous support from a range of Americans, forced that with some hellacious 4D chess. As I've repeatedly said, we've already won. Life is short, gang. Some of y'all need to learn how to enjoy some of these wins and begin participating in the effort to *maintain* this victory. You don't do that by bitching and moaning about what the hell you can't see that's not six inches in front of your nose. Competent professionals are in charge and handling their business. The Democrats aren't going to come close to winning the House . . . and they know it.

An article for some background: Brett Kavanaugh and Rod Rosenstein both learned to 'tune out the noise' while investigating President Clinton. Now they're at the center of it http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-kavanaugh-rosenstein-starr-20180926-story.html

Come on, henry. When are you going to see the 4D chess? They are all cold-busted. All of them. And now, the nation has tuned in to this crazy spectacle on the nomination. I think this is where you were on the money when you said FBI has been already investigating this in July. This might be a Team McCabe (Clinton guy) vs Team Rosenstein (Kavanaugh on same Ken Starr team) battle behind scene.— thepatriotpaine (@thepatriotpaine) October 3, 2018 This makes sense to me and helps to explain so much. It was, internally and externally, a Team McCabe ( he's a Clinton guy) vs Team Rosenstein (he and Kavanaugh on the same Ken Starr investigatory crew).When not leading back to Obama, it all leads back to the Clinton crowd. https://t.co/Ua39WJNs8P— J.B.

Posted by: James D. | September 27, 2018 at 02:53 PM Thus I remain on The Ledge. But then we'll have the Verandah 4D advocates tell me how wrong I am, and that this is all part of Trump's master strategy at work. I just think, long term, the Left has already won the culture war, and nothing's going to change for the better until the next Revolution occurs. Posted by: fdcol63 🇺🇸 | September 27, 2018 at 02:56 PM Faith and patience, man. I still can't figure out why this is so hard. * * * Does anyone think the R questioner was a net positive? I realize she was there to shield the men from asking questions because of the talking point 27 years ago that it was all men asking questions of St. Anita, but even so, was it worth such an ineffective display? They couldn't find another female questioner better than "Miss Mitchell"? Posted by: Extraneus | September 27, 2018 at 07:08 PM I thought she was outstanding. Instead of going after the accuser, she essentially went after Feinstein. Good move. As for Kavanaugh, she went hard on him to cut off suggestions / claims she was partisan. Then, quite appropriately, the Senators took over and carried this thing home. Y'all were *far* too negative early in the day. Like Jane, I seriously can't believe I essentially spent all damn day on this but that's mostly what I did. I was super pleased with Kavanaugh. * * * Daddy, the Florida Boy in me says Go Canes! (many, many Gators would hate me for that but that's how I roll)

She seems pretty crazy to me. Posted by: Porchlight | September 27, 2018 at 11:32 AM Agreed. And although some are complaining, I think the prosecutor having five minute blips is a *very* good approach. Not for us viewing, but for her not being able to keep straight her rehearsed prevarications. This prosecutor is quite likely very clear on obvious weaknesses in her statements, etc., and efforts today to mitigate or fix them. I don't think things are going well for this woman, or the Democrats.

Hmmmmmm . . . Naomi Osaka has a Haitian father and grew up in / lives in Florida. I think I'm getting even more pissed at Serena. But Osaka is an interesting cultural context icon for what I so often try to argue when I warn my leftwing friends not to navel gaze when discussing America. Her father and Japanese mother, in order to mitigate things in Japan, decided she would be given an all Japanese name. My point is: America deals with cultural and racial prejudice better than most anywhere else on the planet. That's a fact, jack.

Y'all may know I'm a big, big, big Serena Williams fan. However: * * * Serena playing by Obama rules. Posted by: jim nj | September 09, 2018 at 05:19 AM Yep, yep. And it was shameful. I love Serena, she's my Alpha Female, but that was outrageous behavior made all the more outrageous by her standing in the Tennis world. The most incredible (and telling) thing to me is this . . . the mostly non-black crowd tagged right along, beclowning themselves in the process. And this occurred at the United States Open !?! There is an unhealthy culture of celebrity that has swept over all things liberal. Or, it seems, activities loved by the liberal set and said celebrities must not be, cannot be, questioned or rebuked when acting inappropriately. We can but hope the return to an unabashedly American standard, evidenced (to me) by the election of Donald Trump, also allows for a re-set in the culture where this sort of foolishness would be seriously frowned upon and would generate an immediate rebuke by those in attendance at the arena.

I'm in deep mourning, DebinGA (/sarc). Kentucky earned the win and the streak had to end at some point. For competitive reasons, this is a good thing. * * * Buckeye, my 4D chess take on that op-ed delivered by a trusted intermediary to the New York Times: it's accurate, but they've been played by the Trump Administration. Think about it; that piece verifies the existence of a Deep State and tries to justify the existence. Who does that, to all but the blinkered idiots on the far left, help ??? Additionally, the language directly ties back to Fiona Hill by using *her* prior explicit language in the opinion. By doing this, they've brilliantly pulled her into the speculative sunshine -- *and* her web of very interesting establishment / globalist links via Brookings, etc. Keep thinking there isn't a plan if you must, keep thinking there is no 4D chess being masterfully played. The Trump crowd have set out to destroy the presently-constituted Democrat Party, their Republican UniParty cohorts, and their globalist enablers. I previously blew that kind of talk off as hyperbole. No more; they're doing it. They are definitely doing it.
