‘C’Mon Man’ — Judge in Manafort Case Accuses
Mueller’s Team of ‘Lying’

The federal judge presiding over Paul Manafort’s tax- and bank-fraud case chastised attorneys representing Special Counsel Robert Mueller Friday for misrepresenting the aim of their investigation and overstepping their authority in bringing fraud charges against the former Trump campaign chairman.   During the hearing, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis pressed Michael Dreeben, the attorney representing Mueller’s team, to explain where the special counsel derived the authority to prosecute Manafort for decade-old financial crimes.
“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said.
Dreeben reportedly argued that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein provided them broad authority to pursue any criminal activity they discovered in the course of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.   Ellis was unconvinced, pointing out that some of the relevant information in Manafort’s case came from an earlier Department of Justice investigation, not the special counsel’s probe, according to Fox News.
The judge then proceeded to summarize the prosecution’s case: “We said this was what the investigation was about but we are not bound by it and we were lying,” he said. “C’mon Man!    In a fortuitous turn of events for the defense team, Ellis went on to question the prosecution’s entire motivation in bringing tax- and bank-fraud charges against Manafort.
In addition to the tax- and bank-fraud charges Manafort is facing in Virginia, he is also dealing with charges of money laundering and failing to register as a foreign lobbyist in a separate D.C. court. The charges are related to lobbying work he did in Ukraine before going to work for the Trump campaign.
Manfort’s attorneys asked Ellis to dismiss a criminal indictment against him Friday, citing the special counsel’s dubious authority.   Ellis suggested the case should be brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Virginia rather than the special counsel and asked the special counsel’s office to provide him a copy of Rosenstein’s memo outlining its mandate.

Trump signs executive order to further protect religious liberty

Trump signs executive order to further protect religious liberty
This is good as far as it goes. How far it goes is limited because the primary threat to religious liberty is cultural more than it’s governmental. And I think the Christian community is taking its eye off the ball if it thinks access to government funding is the key to ushering forth the Kingdom.



Is This the End of the Boy Scouts?

I predict that the new “Scouts” will be a thing of the past as parents will shun the new concept as well as their boys and girls. What a shame !

Is This the End of the Boy Scouts?
For over the past 108 years, many of our leaders, in both the public and private sectors, were once part of that proud, patriotic organization called the Boy Scouts.  I was a Boy Scout (first I was a Cub Scout) of less than attributed success.  I started out as a “Tenderfoot” and ended my career as a “Boy Scout” as a “Tenderfoot”.  At that time in my life, my main goal and interest in life was to become a big league ballplayer, not an “Eagle Scout”.  (I never made the big leagues, but I did play for three years in the minor leagues).  I do have fond memories of the short time I was exposed to the activities of the Boy Scouts.

We owe Hillary Clinton a big “thank you.” Yes, your party is a hotbed of socialists. We appreciate your efforts to point that out

Now Hillary’s blaming her love of capitalism for her 2016 loss. Yes, really.

Now Hillary’s blaming her love of capitalism for her 2016 loss. Yes, really.

OK, let’s do this one more time. It’s not Hillary’s fault that she lost the 2016 election.  It was, in no particular order, the fault of white men, white women, misogyny, racism, Christianity, backwards states, low-info voters, deplorables, Barack Obama, James Comey, Jill Stein, Vladimir Putin, nefarious hackers, the media, Bernie Sanders, Bernie Bros, the DNC, Wikileaks, and her own staff.  At least, that’s what Hillary Clinton tells us. Now and then she’ll say something like “there are things I could have done differently” but there’s never any real acknowledgment that she was the biggest part of her own problem.
Now, we have a new – and completely ridiculous – scapegoat.  Hillary Clinton claims that she was hurt by …being a capitalist. Yes, really.
The logic goes like this: 41% of Democrats are self-described socialists, so when Hillary was asked if she was a capitalist – and answered in the affirmative – she doomed herself.
If that sounds too ridiculous to be true, watch the following clip:

President Proxy Robert Mueller III

But horrid as Mueller really is, he’s only
‘President Proxy’. The real danger is with
whom he and the progressive/left plan to
replace Donald Trump after they cancel
the results of Election 2016

President Proxy Robert Mueller III

No one in America ever cast a single vote for Robert Mueller III—but America got Mueller for president anyway.
If you don’t realize that Mueller is America’s 45th in all but name, you haven’t been paying attention.  The Special Counsel head honcho has been running the show ever since May 17, 2017, and was culmination of the Dirty Tricks Campaign of the Deep State from its inception.
Most important of all of the Mueller trajectory to power: President Donald Trump interviewed Robert Mueller as a potential replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey the day before the former FBI director was named special counsel.   Call Mueller the leader of the raving wolf pack out to get Trump,  5-star General of the Witch Hunt. Call Robert Mueller III indefatigable leader of America’s boldest coup d’etat in history.
You can count on the crazed Democrats calling Mueller in to lay a laurel wreath on his head when the metaphorically corpse of the man who wasn’t supposed to be elected president is put out on public display.  The saddest truth is that Robert Mueller III is, in reality, President by Proxy; serving office while Obama waits in the wings for the third term in office he would have pulled off had only his protégé Hillary Rodham Clinton won the election.
There’s a Big Game Plan afoot here and it’s as visible as the nose on your face.
When Mueller was brought forward, his mission was to keep President Donald Trump from having any of his policies made into law.
The wall is being blocked from funding. Immigration reform has never happened with illegals still flooding unprotected U.S. borders.  DACA has not ended.  The Senate is still blocking Trump’s nominations and the Deep State is weaponizing security clearances.  Mueller is roping everyone in to his ‘investigation’, and even after a full year and a half of no proof of Russia-Trump collusion,  is now reported to be entertaining subpoenaing the POTUS for questioning.
So who is really America’s 45th?


The coup to take over our government and country has arrived, folks. The FBI, DOJ and the “intelligence” agencies are in the process of shredding the US Constitution before our very eyes

Are Mueller, Rosenstein et al now Trying to Cover up their own Crimes?

Are Mueller, Rosenstein et al now Trying to Cover up their own Crimes?

It is beginning to appear that free-wheeling ‘Special Counsel’ Robert Mueller and his leftist team of Clinton sycophant lawyers may have no evidence on, virtually, anyone connected with the Trump Team.  It is also becoming increasingly clear to many that Mueller’s intent is to so thoroughly destroy—financially, physically, emotionally—and intimidate anyone who helped now-President Trump achieve the presidency that no one will ever try to bring down the Stalinist Deep State government…that now rules we-the-peasants.
 Could Mueller and his malevolent marauders be banging down doors, picking the locks of private citizens to enter their homes and wake them up in the middle of the night to perform body searches with no evidence that they’ve done anything wrong?  In Paul Manafort’s case it appears that it’s true.  To refresh memories, Manafort’s home was broken into in by Mueller’s Marauders in the middle of the night.  Manafort and his wife are roughly awakened and pulled from their beds while agents perform a body search of his wife and all of Manafort’s files on business dealings were taken (aka “stolen”) from Manafort.  Note:  At the time and since then, Manafort has been told by the Mueller team that he is being charged with “involvement” with the Russians and a “Russian Billionaire.”  I had no idea that involvement with any Russian—let alone a Russian Billionaire was a crime.  If so, why do we have any of them living in this country?  In any event, Manafort has been ‘allowed’ to be under ‘house arrest’ and has to wear an “ankle bracelet” tracker.
