for all the Trumpanzees, this is one of the very many chickens, strutting through the door of the roost, as they come home...

 

The prosecutor personally selected by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Mueller probe says he can't find any evidence to support the theory that the probe was a setup by American intelligence agencies. U.S. Attorney John Durham was contacted by the office of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and asked whether a Maltese professor who had early contact with the Trump campaign was actually a U.S. intelligence asset. U.S. intelligence have agencies denied the claim, and Durham informed Horowitz's office that his investigation had also produced no evidence to support it. The previously unreported interaction between Horowitz and Durham is documented in a draft of Horowitz's forthcoming report on the Russia investigation, which argues that the FBI did have sufficient evidence to launch the investigation in the first place. (Washington Post / CNN / The Hill)

I was speaking to a good friend of mine from the old days today. He echoed what I have thought was the case and it makes more sense now. He doesn't like Trump. He doesn't like the antics. But he said he was/is driven to Trump more for his disdain for what is going on with the Democratic party/left of center issues, mainly culture issues, where he thinks the country is going. There are some people who support Trump for bad reasons. They actually like the bigotry, etc. and openly and gladly wear the MAGA hats. And there are some like this guy I know who do it holding their noses. They won't admit they support him but they will vote for him.

California:  LARGEST OPEN AIR INSANE ASYLUM IN THE WORLD

Interesting that the LA Times did this.  All the others are staying away from it. 

Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, this should be of great interest to you! 

Just One State - be sure and read the last part... Try for 3 times. 

Again, this is only one State ... If this doesn't open your eyes, nothing will! 

From the LA. Times: 

1.    40% of all workers   in LA County (10.2 million people) are working for cash; and not paying taxes This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.  

2.    95% of warrants   for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens. 

3.    75% of people   on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens. 

4.    Over 2/3 of all births   in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers. 

5.    Nearly 35% of all inmates   in California detention centers are Mexican nationals; they are here illegally. 

6.    Over 300,000 illegal aliens   in Los Angeles County are living in garages. 

7.    The FBI reports   half of all gang members   in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border. 

8.    Nearly 60% of all occupants   of HUD properties are illegal. 

9.    21 radio stations   in LA are Spanish-speaking. 

10.  In LA County,   5.1 million people speak English; 3.9 million, speak Spanish .  (There are 10.2 million people, in LA County.) 

All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times. 

Less than 2%   of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. 

Over 70%   of the United States' annual population growth, (and   over 90%   of California, Florida, and New York), results from immigration. 

Also,   29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens. 

We are fools for letting this continue. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP? 

Send copies of this letter, to at least two other people.     To 100, would be even better.

This is only one State... If this doesn't open your eyes nothing will, and you wonder why   NANCY   PELOSI   wants them to become voters! 

IF YOU DON'T AGREE, JUST DELETE -- IF YOU DO PASS IT ON! 

WHERE DO WE GET THESE MORONS? 

Windfall Tax on Retirement Income ... Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people "you're so darn stupid that we're going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you."   Nancy Pelosi   wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income.  In other words, tax what you have made by investing toward your retirement.  This woman is a nut case!  You aren't going to believe this. 

Nancy Pelosi   wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits (including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds)! 

Alas, it is true - all to help the 12 Million (only 12 million?) Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities!

This woman is frightening.    She quotes... 'We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income, (didn't Marx say something like this?) in our country; and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest. 

When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:   "We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities.  For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities.    Stock market windfall profits taxes   could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as Americans. 

(Read that quote again and again and let it sink in.)  'Lower your retirement; give it to others who have not worked, as you have' for your money. 

Send this on to your friends.  I just did! 

This woman is out of her mind!!!

I"m a California resident. And the one thing that has been marketed is that the state may as well be The People's Republic of California. Home of "Hollyweird" as some have labeled the entertainment industry.  This is a complete fallacy. There are not only very conservative areas of California (Orange county being probably the most famous), there are far right enclaves. Very, very far right if you get my meaning. LA and SF are NOT California. The state is huge physically, economically (it would be a G8 nation by itself) but also ideologically. 

Remember, this is the state that gave us both Nixon and Reagan and presently Nunes, Trump's chief attack dog. California was once a rich, prosperous state, with surplus. Both parties have done their fair share of the once slow but now quickening rot. 

From 1966 to 2006 when most of the damage was done. In that 40 year period, only 12 of those years had a Democrat governor. 2 specifically and years apart. From 1983 to 1999 there was nothing but Republican governors.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_governors_of_California

Los Angeles has zero say about illegal aliens, that's a federal issue at the border. And frankly, whisper it, the federal government WANTED those undocumented workers to work the farms of California which supplied so much of the country's produce. 

America (and frankly EVERY nation that ruled its era historically) was built on slave and cheap labor. There was no collective will to solve the porous border because it was in America's economic interest NOT to. Slavery ended, cheap European immigrant labor ended and so, a new cheap labor force was needed.  The circular cruel irony was that the undocumented were both encouraged to come with a porous border and said labor demonized for votes. I guarantee you those Republican big farm owners, Napa Valley vineyard owners in red counties of California do not want that wall built. 

There is also a fact that no one repeats and is that there has been a NET loss of people going back to Mexico. And this has been happening for several years. Why not? Our manufacturing base has been relocated south of the border via NAFTA, which although was a Clinton presidency legislation, it had Republican support.

As for the stats, hmmm..the may in fact be true, all or in part but they don't seem accurate on face value.

My observance is that areas do well when both parties share power. One checks the other. One party dominating is never good, be it Democrat or Republican because one party eventually leads to a ton of corruption. Cities like NYC did well when they had both parties as mayors. My hometown, Philadelphia devolved when Democrats dominated all facets of government. Republicans made some headway into the city and it helped stopped the rot. 

Same for Republican dominated areas. If Republican rule was the solution, then why is Mississippi still a 3rd world state in a first world country?

A word or two about gangs. In America, gangs have always been a symptom of economic inequality. Good economic times for a community stifles gangs. LA is no different. The city has been known and is known as a liberal bastion going back decades but this is the same city that has had riots from the underclass going back to the Zoot Suit riots involving latinos in the 1940s. There was also the famous Watts Riots in 1965 as well as the Rodney King verdict riots in 1992.  

I'll provide further examples. Jews had been a pariah in Europe for centuries. The word ghetto came from the Jewish quarter of cities. Despite being literally run out of town in various cities over the centuries in Europe, Jews never resorted to criminal gangs and organized crime UNTIL they came to America. So, one has to ask why were there Jewish street gangs as well as organized crime that gave us famous names like Dutch Schultz, Meyer Lansky, Bugsy Siegal among many, ,many other lesser known gangsters. Why would a people who never resorted to crime before, form criminal gangs. The lower east side of Manhattan was a Jewish stronghold and one of the most dangerous parts of NYC as well as America at one time. Why did they go into crime? Simple answer is the antisemitism they faced was so bad they chose criminality. It was a symptom of the Jewish immigrant masses being excluded from the economy. Yes, there were many Jewish merchants and even some very rich Jews but the masses, especially eastern European Jews, were excluded, even from within Jewish society. Western European jews wouldn't allow them into their synagogues and if you trace the lineage of the most ardent Jewish gangsters they were almost always from eastern European stock. 

Why don't you have them today? That's easy. 

Same with Italian, Irish and other ethnic group youth street gangs and organized crime of the adults. I've read that the Italian mafia has a hard time recruiting. They have even started letting in half Italians as long as the father is Italian. Why is it so tough to recruit? Because Italians are now regarded as the same as WASPs when they weren't at one time. Same with Jews and the Irish. The aforementioned three groups were not deemed 'white' at one time in America. Sort of a purgatory...lol...not WASP but not Black but somewhere in between and were the targets of so called 'nativists' the precursor to the term WASP. The Immigration Act of 1924 was enacted specifically to ban these groups as well as others from eastern Europe (Slavs, etc) 

Anyway, those same dynamics have not changed. The plethora of black and latino street gangs are a result of economic marginalization. This was also the case with certain Asian street gangs. Chinese triads, Vietnamese gangs in Orange country, California. Samoan gangs as well. Middle California, Stockton, Bakersfield and other desolate white areas are a breeding ground for white gangs as well as white biker gangs. Those areas are economically deprived and mostly poor white. 

It's tough in LA to make enough of a living wage if you are low or unskilled. Hence the drug dealing and the gangs. Simple really.

We knew they would be going after Pence too. How else are they going to take over the White House without an election?  If both Trump and Pence are booted out of office, guess who becomes president. That's right, Nancy Pelosi! My liberal fruitcake sister has even told me she can't wait for that to happen.   :yay::chili::tuxedo:

If the Dems could manage to pull that off, right or wrong, you really would see a civil war in the USA, and the Dems aren't the folks with guns. Are they so blind that they can't see that? They could probably get away with dumping just Trump, but no way they could by seizing the White House but such a method.

Pence is not involved in any way? Let's look at the facts. He pressured the Ukrainians. Surely, we have to know his role as its germane to the investigation? I'm not seeing the problem here. The committee would not be doing their duty if they didn't. No? 

 

The VP and the main Republican on the committee also involved. Don't you think he ought to recuse himself?
