    meanwhile....

    Two Somali-Americans were arrested at Tucson International Airport for conspiring to join the Islamic State. What is striking about the arrest is how images that repulse ordinary people will attract those people with extremist or twisted mentalities. Ahmed Mohamed and Abdi Hussein were arrested at the airport on July 26th and the FBI released communications from the men, including Mohamed telling the undercover agent, “[I]f I go to Syria I want to be the beheading person.

    Hi Diane,

    I still recall racist Jessie Jackson spitting in white folks salad!

    Once he told of his days as a waiter at the Jack Tar Hotel in his home town of Greenville, S.C. Just before leaving the kitchen he would spit into the food of white patrons he hated and then smilingly serve it to them.

    Who can forget Rev. Al Sharpton would not admit the Tawana Brawley rape case he drove to national prominence was a hoax and on Morning Joe Tuesday, saying he had no regrets

    however on the bright side....................

    This is absolutely brilliant. With OVER 308,000 followers gay-pro-Trump activist Scott Presler is actually doing something about the problems in Baltimore.

    A conservative activist just threw down a challenge to liberals who are up in arms about President Trump’s recent remarks about Baltimore.

    As Democrats and the talking heads on the left continue their bashing of the president as a racist for stating the obvious on the shameful conditions in Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Maryland district, one Trump supporter is taking action — and challenging the critics to join him.

    Scott Presler, a gay Republican from Virginia Beach, announced a trash clean-up day in Baltimore as a way to push back on the anti-Trump rhetoric, calling on volunteers to join the effort.

  • How To Fight Trump?   7 weeks 4 days ago

    If you the democrats, also known as the party of death, want to beat Trump in 2020, the solution is relatively easy. All they have to do is come up with some better ideas.

    Sorry, but free everything will not work. Doing away with private health insurance plans will not work. Open borders for all will not work. Abortion anytime, anywhere, and for any reason will not work. No support for the poor and working classes will not work. Calling everybody who disagrees with you a racist will not work. No mention at all of foreign affairs and foreign policy will not work.

    Now....if you want to beat Trump, come up with something that will work.

    Good Tuesday morning HotCoffee and Coalage3,

    Coalage, you are right on. Race is a business and two masters at keeping things up are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Both are complete scum and do nothing to help but everything to promote themselves by threatening companies to shovel money into their "foundations". Sharpton who owed the government millions in back taxes sold his life story to his own charity for $530,000 in cash. Add to the likes of those two con men the thousands of bleeding heart leftie/socialists burdens with their own self inflicted white guilt and you now have created a huge $$$$ making business to be exploited.

    Little coverage from the printed media or ventriloquist dummie radio talking heads on this,

    Trump grants presidential pardons, commutations to seven people

    How can we be civilized as long as portions of our major cities are "rat infested"? Everyone, and I mean Everyone, knows that what Trump said about Baltimore is more truth than rascist. And Cummings knows it. There have been several stories about this problem including by the Baltimore Sun. This is old news.

    The democrats and their pals in the liberal media just can't stand the fact that Trump fights back. If you say something about him or his policies that he doesn't agree with, he says so. If you continue to speak out against him, he just doubles down even more.

    The mysterious Mister Mifsud and why no one wants to discuss himBy Jonathan Turley, opinion contributor — 07/27/19 10:00 AM EDT

    Joseph Mifsud: The name of the generally unknown character in the Russia investigation came up, over and over, in the long-awaited House committee hearings with former special counsel Robert Mueller. Republican Jim Jordan of Ohio invoked the name as if it legally required the accompaniment of horror movie theme music; Mueller immediately snapped back that he would not discuss that man. Yet that did not deter Republicans. “Joseph Mifsud,” “Joseph Mifsud” — the mantra continued until the shadowy professor had emerged as the Keyser Söze of the Mueller hearings.

    Söze was the mysterious figure in the film “The Usual Suspects.” Another of the film’s characters, “Verbal” Kint, explained to an FBI agent that Söze was a criminal mastermind who committed horrible acts and then disappeared: “Nobody has ever seen him since. He becomes a myth, a spook story that criminals tell their kids at night. Rat on your pop, and Keyser Söze will get you.”

    Mifsud appears to be the story that Republicans tell their kids at night. However, it is a new story for most of us. Political analyst David Gergen acknowledged as much during CNN’s live coverage of hearings, saying that Republicans “presented things, frankly, we haven't talked about much on CNN, aspects of this that are on the right but we don't — you know — we haven't visited because we don't put much stock in a lot of what they're arguing.”

    Indeed, despite the nonstop coverage of the Russia investigation, most news shows have rarely “visited” the allegations linked to Mifsud. Certain subjects are rarely visited by CNN or other networks, at least not substantively. Media largely dismisses the fact that the Clinton campaign also solicited political dirt from foreign intelligence sources, including Russian intelligence, through investigator and British ex-spy Christopher Steele and the research firm Fusion GPS. Few programs mention that Glenn Simpson, a co-founder of Fusion GPS, had dinner with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya both the day before and the day after she met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016.

    Many figures are now household names, such as resigned Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. But not Mifsud, despite his central role as a catalyst of the original investigation. For Republicans, it is like what Kint said about Söze: “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

    Two years ago, I wrote about Mifsud and his curious role in the unfolding scandal. He was variously described as a “Russian stooge,” a “KGB cutout” or an intelligence handler. Mifsud had worked as a “full-time professorial teaching fellow” at the University of Stirling in Scotland and was a professor at the London Academy of Diplomacy. He had a degree from the University of Malta and ran in diplomatic circles as a type of dealmaker for grants and conferences. He was said to be a fan and claimed acquaintance of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    For Republicans, if there was a Garden of Eden in the Trump campaign, Mifsud was the snake. It was Mifsud who, in a 2016 meeting in London with then-Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, suddenly broached the possibility that the Russians might have emails and dirt on Hillary Clinton. Notably, he had that meeting just after returning from Moscow and allegedly referred to “thousands of emails.” Papadopoulos later repeated what he had been told to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer in a London pub, and Downer reported that to the U.S. government.

    C'mon Now, Do You REALLY Think Your Food Delivery Order Would Not Be Munched On By The College Dropout SJW Who Delivered It?

    (WSET) -- Ever wondered if a delivery driver took a bite of your food while on delivery? A new study says your fears might be real.

    A new study done by US Food shows the habits of both customers and delivery drivers.

    The study shows 28 percent of delivery drivers have taken food from a customer's order.

    54 percent of delivery drivers polled also said they are often tempted by the smell of the food they deliver to customers.

    The US Food study also shows that 17 percent of customers complained their food was not warm or fresh, and 16 percent complained their food was delivered late.

    Customers weren't the only ones with complaints about food delivery. The study also says 60 percent of delivery drivers complained of receiving little or no tip, while 39 percent complained that the customer's instructions were unclear.

    The study covered 1,518 American adults who have used food delivery apps, including UberEats, Grubhub, DoorDash and Postmates from May 9 to 13.

    They also surveyed 497 American adults who identified as having worked as a deliverer for at least one food delivery app.

    Hmmm

    And before they call for more gun control in Ca. over the garlic festival...here are the laws now....

    Why aren't the DEMS screaming gun control over this one??

    Not politically correct? Don't want to counter gun crime here??

    By Sun-Times Wire Jul 29, 2019, 6:02am CDT

    Write On, Sister... DJT, The Salty Sailor And The Fireman

    Sometimes you just run across thoughts that prick you when touring various boards.

    Here's one:
    Great analogy!! I think her writing represents so many people's feelings

    Read this once, pause for a minute or two to think honestly about it, then read it again. I can find no fault with it...

    The views this mother has about Donald Trump are much like many other people. Her characterization of Trump as the "Salty Sailor" or as “The Fireman” paint an excellent picture!! She has written many great books about her son and family. This is a Comment from KAREN VAUGHN, Mother of Aaron Vaughn, Navy Seal.

    Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn't mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn't even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he's necessary for such a time as this.

    I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House to give this nation one more chance in November 2016. Donald Trump is what he is – and he is still the man he was before the election – and without guilt. I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.

    He's not like me. That's okay with me. I don't want to be like him. I will never behave like him. I know we've NEVER had a man like him lead our nation before. It's crazy and a little mind-blowing at times. But I can't help admire the stamina and ability he has – acting with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script. I still believe that is WHY he became our President and WHY he's been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.

    I'm THRILLED with what he's doing for my nation, for the cause of Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn't matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding America and putting her FIRST. I will not be ashamed of my position because others don't see him through the same lens.

    Should it matter to me if a fireman drops an f-bomb while he's pulling me from a burning building? Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments? Heck no! I'd CARE about what he was DOING. He wasn't sent there to save my soul and I'm not looking to him for spiritual guidance. All I'm thinking in those moments is, "Thank you, GOD, for sending the fireman." AND DONALD TRUMP IS OUR FIREMAN.

    I'll soon post this article again for those who still might not understand me. This man is crass. Okay. He's not careful with what he says. Okay. You feel offended that he's not a typical statesman. Okay. But he is DOING THE JOB of rebuilding the nation my son died for... the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause.

    Forgive me if I'm smiling."

    And the hits just keep on coming............

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) once referenced North Korea to slam the conditions and lifespan of residents in Baltimore’s “poorest boroughs,” calling it a “disgrace.”

    This comes in the wake of far-left politicians slamming President Trump over criticisms of House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who represents Baltimore’s district.

    In 2016, Sanders slammed the conditions in Baltimore’s “poorest boroughs,” claiming that residents have “lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea.”

    “That is a disgrace,” he added in May 2016.

    Residents of Baltimore’s poorest boroughs have lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea. That is a disgrace.

    — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) May 5, 2016

    Days later, he added: “Horribly, someone born in Baltimore’s poorest neighborhood can expect to live 20 years less than a person born in the wealthiest area.”

    Horribly, someone born in Baltimore's poorest neighborhood can expect to live 20 years less than a person born in the wealthiest area.

    — Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) May 13, 2016

    This comes in the wake of criticisms from far-left lawmakers aimed at Trump, who slammed Cummings Saturday for “shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border.”

    and now on to Sara Carter....

    Butina’s lawyer, Robert Driscoll, also confirmed the relationship between Byrne and Butina. Driscoll stated that he also had relayed the information to the FBI and prosecutors earlier during his trial, and asked repeatedly about any Brady material -exculpatory information – that the bureau may have collected from Byrne on Butina, to no avail. The bureau denied it had any information regarding Byrne and Butina’s relationship, said Driscoll.

    On Thursday, Driscoll sent a letter to United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham, who was appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation; Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is conducting an investigation into the bureau’s origins of the Trump probe and Corey Amundson, with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

    And a great Sunday to you Diane,

    Having a second cup myself....

    I just love Collies I grew up with 3 full size collies, very smart dogs! my best friends had border collies and they are the same, just smaller. After the collies passed on I 've had shepard huskie mix, they are smart too..a cop stopped my son when he was young for riding his bike and not stopping at a stop sign, he warned him it was dangerous and our shepard took the cop by his wrist and brought him to our house about a block away. Good thing the cop loved dogs.

    Got Kamala right!

    This whole 3 years has been nothing but a cover hillary and cohorts butt session.

    Nolte – MSNBC Host: We’re Not Going to ‘Play Fair’ to Put Trump in Jail
    by John Nolte

    During a Friday appearance on Morning Joe, MSNBC host Donny Deutsch promised the world, “We’re not going to necessarily play fair” to put President Trump “in jail.”

    “We may not have won the battle of impeachment,” Deutsch squealed, “but we’re going to win the war of putting him in jail — whatever we have to do, and we’re not going to necessarily play fair.”

    So what you have here is an anchor for a major cable news outlet assuring everyone that when it comes to putting an individual in prison, “we’re not going to … play fair.”

    This is how far gone the media now are…
