Not sure that Trump really wants to cut down on all the entitlements in fact he is creating a new entitlement with family Leave. He just wants to govern more efficiently by eliminating some of the corrupt behavior in contracting. In fact if you listened to Bannon at beginning of administration , they were going to do a lot of infrastructure taking advantage of near ZIRP cost.

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday we seemingly had a truce on what color hat the various characters had and today we are back to bickering. My own view is that Trump is slow walking the FBI DOJ issues so that foreign adversaries such as Iran , Russia and China miscalculate Trump's political strength. We have to realize with the calendar having turned to the election year these foreign adversaries feel that Trump will be limited in his actions to any mischief they may create. In other words , if Trump would reveal all of the shenanigans that went on during the Obama administration, there would be a different calculus by Russia, China and Iran in dealing with Trump since they would have to be quite certain that Trump would be reelected.

Wonder cause and effect of the recent spate of anti semitic attacks in NYC area. The left blames Trump rhetoric encouraging antisemitic sentiment. My view is that lax law enforcement by voting in DAs that decriminalize everything as part of the Soros project has led to even more juvenile delinquency and radicalization of the youth since there seems to be no repercussion to their violent acts.

Mary, in the current climate where the left has influenced us in deconstructionism, we have to ask whether our religious leaders are infallible as we once believed or have the same temptations as us mortals. Most of us have come to conclude that the pope is a mere mortal and is subject to criticism and that his decrees are not divinely inspired but as a reaction to current events and as rse notes a way to brainwash the youth in the future

Not sure why McGahn ever spoke to Mueller in first place, plus who cares since the whole Mueller report should be deemed fruit of the poisoned tree.

Scott Adams labels Trump as the Great Persuader but I think the Great Promoter is amore Apt title. Trump in his WWE showmanship borrowed from Linda McMahon and his association with Don King knows how to promote a product and that is Maga that America can be exceptional if we allow it to be. This whole impeachment seems to be a Trump production and I hope the curtain rises with the imperial wizards of the IC exposed rather than falls sometime in late October.

So Tom R what hat is Mueller wearing so why allow the 19 page executive summary and not include grand jury testimony like Barr requested. Mueller was not on Team Trump and my opinion is that neither side wants a resolution at this point since they still have to sell a narrative for the next ten and half months to keep the viewers watching.

McGahn left in October ,2018 before the Ukraine dustup, so only issue is with obstruction in regard to discussion of firing Mueller. After Horowitz report in which FBI fudged the e-mail on Carter Page in March of 2017 and before Comey's firing which now everyone can agree was justified, any Mueller grand jury testimony should be deemed fruit of the poisoned tree.All 3 dem cases, on grand jury testimony, tax returns and executive privilege should be tossed by the supreme court.

Playing Tom R for a moment and conspiracy theorist, why has Carter Page not sued the DOJ for infringing on his privacy and/or made a martyr for his CIA affiliation being exposed a la Valerie Plame. We can speculate that he was part of CIA and one of his tasks was to keep any GOP candidate policies within the deep states preferred world view. Mirroring Rattler gate view of Trump and OODA there were lessons learned from the Plame affair and how to handle Comey, Ignatius and the like. Bush did not lift a finger for Libby even though it was clear from the beginning that Armitage was the leaker and in fact that Joe Wilson outed Valerie by going to Nick Kristoff at the Times. Bush also did not fight back when the deep state and Pillar tied his hands regarding IRAN by filing the bogus 2002 Iran nuclear assessment. Trump has shown that the deep state are a bunch of elite useful idiots and that was displayed by Vindman and Fiona Hill and is not bound by the consensus opinion of 17 intelligence agencies that collectively have no intelligence. Although Comey may claim that he did not know that Mccabe was abusing the FISA applications his memorializing his conversation with Trump and leaking them to change the counterintelligence investigation into a criminal investigation. How do you obstruct justice when the individuals investigating you are altering the facts. Comey at Politicon proud of altering the definition of family by changing our values Not ethics at a bout 36 minute mark of the interview.

Stephanie, it is Jonathan Winer who was at the state department and was getting disinformation from Sydney Blumenthal and Cody Schearer similar to the Steele Dossier. The whole impeachment sham yesterday was to distract from the devastating Horowitz testimony yesterday in front of Homeland Security. https://www.c-span.org/video/?467350-1/justice-dept-ig-testifies-origins-fbis-russia-inquiry Several points, Senator Johnson asked why the NY office started counter intelligence on Carter Page in April 2016. MCCabe appointed Strzok over the objection of Priestap who opened Crossfire Hurricane investigation and Strzok immediate supervisor. Of Course MCabe had amnesia about most things in that area. Alsoif you go to the 42 minute mark, Peters the Democratic senator from Michigan tries the no political bias talking point on Horowitz and Horowitz basically shot it down. That may be openedwith no political bias but either gross incompetence or malicious behavior in continuing the farce. Also, Evans was questioning Steele's veracity back in October after Steele met with Winer at State and McCabe over rode Evans objections which were in Page Strzocktext messages. Sundance at CTH alsopickedupthat Callahan and LIU weretransferredorlet goat DOJ right after unredavtion ofdate of third FISA which was in April and not in March asthat is how they caught Wolfe banging Ali Watkins of the Slimes.

Also do you not just love the progressives, under Obama Ezra Klein complained that the constitution was over a hundred years old and should be overhauled since Obama could not do more destruction than he actually accomplished. Now Feldman props up the Constitution to allow Pelosi run roughshod over executive privilege,

On the Ujraine front had a couple of questions. Why did Schiff have Ciamarella be the whistleblower and have the ICIG rewite the whisteblower protection when they ultimately had to rely on Vindmand and Vindman gets exposed anyway. Also why the whisper campaign on Yonakovich just fire her and be done with it. This one is easy since the whisper campaign is Yonakovich assertion since they were end rounding her anyway. In additionSchiff wanted to exposeJohn Solomon as Nunes mouthpiece hence the phone call record ofLev Parnes. They wantto taint the evidence that Guiliani ,Nunes and Solomon obtained from Parnes as being manufactured. e

Tom R if Mueller white hat why one sided coverage on George Nader. Levine is habving Dershowitz on Sunday to hawk his new book about being smeared by Epstein's clients via Boies. Boies did not comeoff well in latest NY times article on how we was replacing Epstein posthumously in blackmailing the rich and famous. Dershowitz should not get a pass for taking funds and smearing girls for Epstein and being a member of the Lolita express. What the TRump era exposed is that Gloria Allred and Boies are scum and have done the NDA bugaloo like Avenatti.

News moved so swiftly that I could not comment on that Professor Karlan seemed to be Jennifer Rubin's twin sister and that Noah Feldman reminded me of Leslie Howard in The Scarlet Pimpernel. Besides Feldman working on the Iraqi constitution, my real impression of him was his article in the New York Times Magazine which if you google is entitled The Orthodox Paradox https://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/22/magazine/22yeshiva-t.html . In the article , Feldman complained that he was left out of the 10 year class reunion photographer since he married a woman of Korean ancestry. What was really astonishing in the article was in his liberal mind he converted the exception to the rule and branded Jews as terrorists for Baruch Goldstein having massacred arabs at the Cave of the Patriarchs and for Rabin's assassination. The school responded to the article that many members of the class were not in the photo and that it was not an intentional cropping of the Your So Vain Feldman from the photo. Which leads us to the the subject of the last three years as to motives and intent. The liberal mindset has cast all of Trump's lawful acts as being criminal since he had the wong motive or intent, but if he had the right to fire Comey and Yovanovich at will do we really need to get to intent and is it obstruction of justice or bribery. In Feldman and Karlan's mind it is but that is the liberal mindset and as Feldman says in the second last sentence of the article. Isn’t everyone’s life a mass of contradictions? So Tom R is it 4D Chessand why look to motive or intent since we are not behind the scenes and we are not mind readers.

Barr only has to keepupthe integrity of the FBI and DOJ . He can point the finger at Brennan, Clapper and Baker at Department of Defense for deceiving the FBI into opening up the investigation.

In the twitterverse, no one has the patience to read a full report and a heavy reliance is placed on the executive summary. That is why the dems were so upset with Barr's 4 page summary prior to the 19 page executive summary to the Mueller report. Barr had blunted any effect of the excutive summary. Similarly the executive summary of Horowitz report blunted the real bias that were in the Page Strzok e-mails which actually in the report. Page and Strzock may be free but public opinion of them and FBI is low.This goes hand in hand with Wretchard's latest https://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/the-last-hurrah-of-the-oracle/ about controlling the narrative which Page and her ilk with their media accomplices are still trying to do with hopefully little success.

Threadkiller, Page and her attorneys would only have review of her testimony and not to the conclusions of the report. Her statement that she has been exonerated in the upcoming report is pure speculation and not the fact currently.

Threadkiller, Lisa Page no longer in FBI so she was not consulted on final draft of IG FISA report. She may have been conflating the earlier IG report with the new one so she can claim victimhood. That they are holding up Flynn case does not bode well for her.

Everyone upset about the slow motion of draining the swamp. Not sure if everyone read Bill Gertz column about China trying to extradite someone by bribing Eliot Broidy, the vice chair of Trump Inaugural Committee and his lawyer wife to the tune of some $40 million. Broidy is the one who had the playmate have an abortion. It is why Trump never complained about inquiries into the $107 million raised for the inaugural. He was watching who Gates and Broidy were getting contribution. Funny how they think Kuwait hacked Broidy i think someone else did and it was to expose China via Broidy e-mails. Took a long time to surface. Also compare the outrage for Kashoggi murder versus Epstein suicide. Just saying.
