    How much does this change with the report now there was no collusion. Time will tell!!

    Tres Bebe! Tres!!!

    I still think trump is guilty and he paid for abortions.

    You can make any argument you want, NYmike is still first.

    I had nothing to do with that….

  7. Cash Cow TM says:

    Mueller Report lets Trump off hook–no collusion.

    But what remains is:

    –DJT is still an asshat and a jerk

    –lots on the left still have TDS and hate DJT and will not rest until he is removed from office, whether any facts exist or not to warrant removal

    –Cash Cow still gives the best milk around

  8. lisab says:

    he may be an asshat and a jerk,

    but he is still half truth corey’s and robbie’s president


  9. lisab says:

    the poll numbers above are looking pretty good for trump

    those are the numbers before they attack each other and before they are on political ads showing how they promise to raise taxes to 70%

    the dems need biden to win

    7. “Cash Cow still gives the best milk around.”

    Be careful Cash Cow. Your days are numbered. I spent a lot of time on a dairy farm when young, so can relate to the following comments:

    “I grew up on a dairy farm. Baby cows were pets until they were a year old. Then they got pregnant from the hired bull. Then 9 months later they gave birth and we could milk them. When they were too old to get pregnant, and were thus not providing much milk, they got slaughtered. Some of them we slaughtered ourselves and then we ate them. Similar with our “pet” rabbits and geese and chickens. Fun to play with when they are young, and yummy to eat when they are old.”

  12. Bitterlaw says:

    Damn. Quite a cast reduction on The Walking Desd Tonight.

  13. Tina says:

    Mark Meadows
    My Democrat colleagues keep seizing on this line that the Mueller report “doesn’t exonerate” the President. Folks, prosecutors don’t exonerate people. They either find evidence or they don’t. They looked for 22 months and found none. It isn’t there. No collusion, no obstruction.

  14. dblaikie says:

    I can’t believe the stupidity of the media and talking heads tonight. There was no obstruction because Trump had no reason to obstruct anything — he was innocent of what they were all charging. If he was guilty of conspiracy with Putin than he would have something to obstruct! Come on two plus two still equals four!

  15. jason says:

    I predicted Buttigieg will the the Dem nominee.

  16. Wobbles says:

    I still think trump is guilty and he paid for abortions”

    I still think Trump had a 15 minute stand with Stormy.

    I know she said it was 10, but I don’t believe her.

  17. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    14. “Folks, prosecutors don’t exonerate people. They either find evidence or they don’t.”

    Exactly right. Mueller was possibly miffed over Trump’s refusal to talk to him, so did not “exonerate” him — whatever that term means in the context of Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

  18. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    17. “I predicted Buttigieg will be the Dem nominee”

    Wasn’t Buttigieg the explorer who set out to find the East Pole?

  19. lisab says:

    Mass Protest Vowed If Demand for Public Release of Mueller Report Not Met: “Hundreds of thousands of Americans stand ready to take to the streets in cities and towns across the nation to demand the truth.” (

  20. Bitterlaw says:

    Release the report. Take away another Dem talking point.

  21. Tina says:

    Yes, release the report.

    But exclude the shenanigans that led to the coup, right?

  22. Tina says:

    Well some of the 13 angry drats, would naturally believe the firing of Comedy was obstruction,

    The problem here are many fold:

    1. Sessions and Redactstein encouraged the firing. So, if firing comedy was obstruction, both sessions and Redactstein also obstructed. See how stupid this is?

    2. The coup plot began with a counter intelligence investigation. The president could not obstruct this investigation since he is a consumer of it,

    3.Several times during the investigation trump was told specifically by Comedy or Redactstein that was not part of the investigation. So, how could he obstruct it?

    4. Seems like some of the angry drats were upset about the tweets. Tweeting is not obstruction. It is out in the open and in the public arena,

  23. Tina says:

    Governor Christie
    We are all presumed innocent under our constitution whether you are President or any other citizen. Prosecutors don’t exonerate folks because that’s not their job—they either prosecute or they don’t. When they don’t, no other exoneration is needed-we are innocent under our laws.
    Bill Mitchell Retweeted

    Governor Christie
    On the charge of obstruction of justice, Bob Mueller’s report “does not conclude that the President committed a crime”. That’s an important finding because that is what prosecutors do—they prosecute, they do not exonerate. Why? Because we all enjoy the presumption of innocence.

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – I said release the report. I put no qualifications on it. Maybe the should also release a Russian translation of it just as GFY to the Dems.

  25. Tina says:

    Bl, It is not in the report (Mulehead). We need to know what led to the coup plot since it’s origins date back to 2015 (and likely before that).

    The coup plotters must be prosecuted.

    So, IMO, release everything.

  26. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is Trump’s victory dance after yesterday’s AG Barr’s vindication letter.( This is very funny so Robbie, Messy, CG and Wes should not watch it.)

  27. Bitterlaw says:

    The coup to take out Trump started when Trump was a Democrat and had not announced he was running for President? Wow. Dems DO play to win.

  28. Phil says:

    Robbie has assured us there was no coup.

    That’s good enough for me.

  29. Tina says:

    Dottie also assure us there was collusion and obstruction.

  30. Tina says:

    Giuliani says there will be accountability for what happened.

    Trump must destroy the coup plotters.

    Peep walk them.

    No knock warrant.

    Put them in solitary.

  31. Tgca says:

    Trump as POTUS has governed more GOP than the last few GOP Presidents so it does not matter what his past political leanings were in the past just like Reagan was a die-hard FDR Dem until he realized how that was working out for the US. What he does as POTUS now is important.

  32. Tina says:

    August 5, 2016

    Pete the cheat to the mistress:

    The Wh is running this.

    August 6, 2016:

    Her Thigness tweets, what is up between trump and Russia,

  33. Tina says:


    Wp has asked trump to apologize for calling Mulehead names.

    Mulehead should be apologizing to us for wasting gubment resources.

  34. Phil says:

    The Washington Post must be on drugs.

  35. Chicon says:

    All the shenanigans need to be exposed. If crimes were committed, indictments should follow.

    Two big scumballs that should have a ton to answer for are Brennan and Clapper – who knew all along that there was no evidence of collusion, yet were promising there was. Garbage humans.

  36. Tina says:


    Robert Ray, comer Sc, has indicated that Barr has reigned in the SDNY. He will,no longer allow them to go on fishing expeditions.

    Looks like one of the main leftist nut jobs out of that office is leaving,

  37. jason says:

    I think the guidelines for “releasing of information” should be followed, I am not on the “release the report” bandwagon.

  38. Tina says:

    There is no way that the entire report will be releases.

    Doj guidelines still apply.

    Also, there are likely documents that are executive privilege and classified,

    Looks like Mulehead spent time with the British intelligence services, They have a h/t into the coup.

  39. Chicon says:

    Generally agree, Jason. Especially about grand jury testimony regarding innocent people. Sources and methods of intel, also. Release the rest. And declassify and release the FISA warrants, with the same caveats. And when the Dems bark about it, ask them if it is okay for Trump to do the same in 2020/2024.

  40. lisab says:

    would releasing the report make the dems happy?

    or would it just cause them to focus on what mueller determined was not obstruction?

  41. lisab says:

    politically of course, it might be better to give it to the dems, so they would start impeachment

    but it would be bad for the country

  42. mnw says:

    Sheep 28

    That IS funny. I wonder where in the wide world of sports they found that demented thang.

  43. Tgca says:

    It does not matter what is released. Jesus Christ could issue a report finding no crimes and it would not be good enough. This is not about justice for the Dems. It never was. It’s about politics and grandstanding and fundraising. Lefty districts will defy Pelosi on impeachment calls because they know their constituents will re-elect them. It’s the purple districts and the seats the Dems gained from the retired GOP that matter. That’s where the pressure will be. It will not be difficult to flip 18 seats if the Dems continue with this madness because the Indy’s will flee them as they realize the House majority is now trying to become the Justice Department.

  44. mnw says:

    I know that I’m a minority of one on this, but… as I noted on the previous thread, I would drop the “counter-probe” into Comey et al like a sack of stinking garbage.

    Get rid of it. Let it GO.

    Not gonna happen, though. All the retaliatory “counter-probe” (my term for it) will accomplish is to keep this in the public eye even longer– instead of talking about good economic results , etc.

  45. Tgca says:


    Horowitz and others are already looking into abuses. They should not be dropped because then it allows for the continued weaponizing of DOJ and FBI. There must be an independent report on the actions. Otherwise, DOJ and FBI are ineffectual and no longer serving justice.

  46. Chicon says:

    Mnw,I’m generally attracted to your position. However, if the FBI and FISA courts were used to try to influence an election and hamstring a sitting President, that’s too serious to let go. Or it will happen again. Just my take.

  47. Tina says:

    John Roberts has not done a good job with the FISA judges.

    Souter 2.0 will continue to be a disaster for us.

  48. Tgca says:

    Walking away from DOJ and FBI extreme abuse of power and trying to undo a presidential election is extremely serious. More serious than Watergate or any other scandal. If they had gotten away with these false allegations and lies, Trump would be facing removal from office. Lawyers at DOJ and FBI conspired to delegitimize POTUS with doctored evidence while much lesser crimes get prosecuted. If this is ok then we mind as well rip up the Constitution now because justice is no longer needed when select lawyers in power dictate what should be.

  49. Chicon says:

    Tina, Roberts just voted with the conservatives on a big immigration win. Roberts is a bit scary, but he’s no Suter at this point.

  50. Phil says:

    No, the stuff from the intelligence agencies, fbi and the deep state is not something you let go. Undoing an election with lies and manipulations is not something you just let go. About as serious as it gets.

  51. Tom says:

    47. MNW – I would normally agree that it’s time to move on but for two points. One, the Dems are not going to move on. They are going to continue to beat this dead horse.

    Two, the deep state exists and must be confronted. A few jail terms would get their attention. I’m retired Federal Gov. and I saw the deep state in operation every day. I had one supervisor tell me (during George H.W. Bush’s term) “I was here before he got here and I’ll be here after he’s gone. All we have to do is bureaucrat him to death and engage in malicious compliance until he’s gone and then we go back to doing what we want.”

    Those IRS agents that harassed the Tea Party groups absolutely knew what they were doing was against IRS policy and the employee code of conduct, but they were liberal democrats and willing participants. Every one of them should have been fired. Every one of the IT people that lost Lois Lerner’s e-mail need to be fired. And Lois Lerner needs her pension revoked and prosecuted.

    Nothing terrifies a bureaucrat like the threat of losing his or her job. The perpetrators of this fiasco need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and this will shake the deep state to it’s core.

  52. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if the Deep State agents still use all their vacation days and retire as soon as they can. Pretty weak commitment to their secret plan if they do.

  53. Chicon says:

    Bitter, the term deep state is loaded a bit, eh? I assume you don’t think it is ok to use the powers of the FBI and FISA to try to win an election or damage a sitting President. There is tons of evidence that this may have occurred. Plenty more evidence than existed against Trump prior to Mueller. We should find out.

  54. jason says:

    Sharyll Attkisson at the Hill

    “With the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe now known to a significant degree, it seems apologies are in order.

    However, judging by the recent past, apologies are not likely forthcoming from the responsible parties.

    In this context, it matters not whether one is a supporter or a critic of President Trump.

    Whatever his supposed flaws, the rampant accusations and speculation that shrouded Trump’s presidency, even before it began, ultimately have proven unfounded. Just as Trump said all along.

    Yet, each time President Trump said so, some of us in the media lampooned him. We treated any words he spoke in his own defense as if they were automatically to be disbelieved because he had uttered them. Some even declared his words to be “lies,” although they had no evidence to back up their claims.

    We in the media allowed unproven charges and false accusations to dominate the news landscape for more than two years, in a way that was wildly unbalanced and disproportionate to the evidence.

    We did a poor job of tracking down leaks of false information. We failed to reasonably weigh the motives of anonymous sources and those claiming to have secret, special evidence of Trump’s “treason.”

    As such, we reported a tremendous amount of false information, always to Trump’s detriment.

    And when we corrected our mistakes, we often doubled down more than we apologized. We may have been technically wrong on that tiny point, we would acknowledge. But, in the same breath, we would insist that Trump was so obviously guilty of being Russian President Vladimir Putin’s puppet that the technical details hardly mattered.

    So, a round of apologies seem in order.

    Apologies to President Trump on behalf of those in the U.S. intelligence community, including the Department of Justice and the FBI, which allowed the weaponization of sensitive, intrusive intelligence tools against innocent citizens such as Carter Page, an adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign.

    Apologies also to Page himself, to Jerome Corsi, Donald Trump, Jr., and other citizens whose rights were violated or who were unfairly caught up in surveillance or the heated pursuit of charges based on little more than false, unproven opposition research paid for by Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

    Apologies for the stress on their jobs and to their families, the damage to their reputations, the money they had to spend to hire legal representation and defend themselves from charges for crimes they did not commit.

    Apologies on behalf of those in the intelligence community who leaked true information out of context to make Trump look guilty, and who sometimes leaked false information to try to implicate or frame him.

    Apologies from those in the chain of command at the FBI and the Department of Justice who were supposed to make sure all information presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) is verified but did not do so.

    Apologies from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court judges who are supposed to serve as one of the few checks and balances to prevent the FBI from wiretapping innocent Americans. Whether because of blind trust in the FBI, or out of ignorance or even malfeasance, they failed at this important job.

    Apologies to the American people who did not receive the full attention of their government while political points were being scored; who were not told about some important world events because they were crowded out of the news by the persistent insistence that Trump was working for Russia.

    Apologies all the way around.

    And now, with those apologies handled — are more than apologies due?

    Should we try to learn more about those supposed Russian sources who provided false “intel” contained in the “dossier” against Trump, Page and others? Should we learn how these sources came to the attention of ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who built the dossier and claimed that some of the sources were close to Putin?

    When and where did Steele meet with these high-level Russian sources who provided the apparently false information?

    Are these the people who actually took proven, concrete steps to interfere in the 2016 election and sabotage Trump’s presidency, beginning in its earliest days?

    Just who conspired to put the “dossier” into the hands of the FBI? Who, within our intel community, dropped the ball on verifying the information and, instead, leaked it to the press and presented it to the FISA Court as if legitimate?

    “Sorry” hardly seems to be enough.

    Will anyone be held accountable?”

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    Deep State storage system?

    Maybe the real killer of JFK lives there next to the Ark.

    Are there bad individuals? Yes. A super secret group committed to controlling the nation for decades? No. That requires a lot of effort and dedication – not the first two words that come to mind when somebody says “Federal employee.”

  56. jason says:

    This is way beyond “bad individuals” unless Bitter agrees it seems lot of bad individuals got together to try to reverse the results of the election.

  57. Bitterlaw says:

    Chicon – I did not say to not investigate it. Charge those who broke the law. However, in a stunning moment at HHR, I lean towards mnw’s point of view. The Democrats did not get their dreams fulfilled by Mueller. Keeping this story alive with more investigations of “the deep state” by Trump is their back up plan.

  58. Bitterlaw says:

    Let’s compromise on “some” bad individuals.

  59. JulStol says:

    “in a stunning moment at HHR, I lean towards mnw’s point of view”

    Nothing stunning about it. You’re both lawyers.

  60. jason says:

    Mark Penn, hardly a conservative:

    ‘Two plus years, thirty million dollars, our fbi and doj compromised, thousands of fake news stories, millions of people all entranced in a false story of Russia collusion based on oppo research that was always unsubstantiated and preposterous.’

  61. jason says:

    Let’s compromise on “some” bad individuals.”

    Let’s compromise of some bad individuals colluded.

  62. jason says:

    Have Messy and Paul apologized yet?

    I know Proud ObamaCON is busy trying to prop up his Marxist hero Maduro in Venezuela so I know he doesn’t have time for apologies.

  63. jason says:

    compromise “on” not “of”.

  64. jason says:

    Don’t agree with mnw.

    This is too big to “let go”.

  65. mnw says:


    Well, one nice thing for you, then… you’re going to get your wish. They’re NOT letting go. They want to talk about this krap right up until election eve, I guess.

    Keeping all this boiling is not going to help Trump or the GOP in Congress. The public is bored with it.

  66. Tina says:

    I cannot day how you eat this go

    This was fraud.

    This may have cost us the house.

    This cost $40+ million on lawyahs and diverted resources.

    This is the biggest scandal since watergate.

    You cannot let it go. Drats okay to win. We need to start.

  67. Tina says:

    JUST IN: President Trump told reporters he is glad that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was over.

    “We can never ever let this happen to another president again” he said. “Treasonous things were done. Those people will be looked at.”

  68. Chicon says:

    Mnw, you could very well be right politically. I respect your opinion, despite your status as a Backes lover. I think this is an integrity of the system issue that can’t be ignored for political reasons.

    I’m okay with a traditional, quiet investigation until a decision is done.

  69. Tina says:

    This is framed excellently.

    It can not happen to another president.

  70. Tina says:

    And trump cannot take the lead.

    Hopefully, Huber working with the it has been looking into this,

    I am very surprised by Barr.

    He is cleaning house and not accepting bs like sessions.

  71. Wes says:

    Tom Udall (D-NM) will not seek re-election.

    Udall must not think Dems have much of a chance of recapturing a Senate majority next year.

    Since NM is, like most Mountain West states, a place where Trump is hated I wouldn’t expect the GOP to have much of a shot here; however, this surprise move is probably a sign Dems realize a path to Senate control next year is a dicey one.

  72. mnw says:

    Tina, conservative warrior princess:

    I just think the point has already been made. The FBI got the worst black eye in its history. I don’t believe they will ever be sucked into this kind of thing again. Who wants to end his/her career the way that McCabe & Strzok did?

    I certainly agree that this was a massive scandal. I resent it as much as anybody. However, I think it’s a mistake to continue this conversation– & the PUBLIC will see all of this as a SINGLE story.

    Ignore it now. Let the DEMs wallow in it until the public gets sick of their obsession.

  73. mnw says:

    Barr signed my credentials in 1989, btw.

    I didn’t know he was still alive. Who says there are no second acts in American lives?*

    *Scott Fitzgerald said it, but he was wrong.

  74. Tina says:


  75. Tina says:


  76. Tgca says:

    This was an effort to destroy POTUS! As the leader of the free world, had this happened, we no longer would be free because a few folks in power would now have had the ability to dismantle the constitutional process of electing leaders and controlling them.

    What message does this say to US adversaries? Why go to war when you can weaken and cause chaos in a democratic process by using useful idiots to frame POTUS? Some of these govt folks willfully manufactured and used information they knew was inaccurate and fraudulent. This is like cops framing a person to get a conviction. The response has to be swift and severe to deter this behavior or it will happen again if folks thinks it’s no big deal and the worst they get is a slap on the wrist. Folks like Comey, McCabe, and others not only engaged in this unlawful behavior but they lied under oath (they sent others to jail for similar behavior) and then profited from their deeds by writing books and doing paid lectures to continue spreading lies.

    If folks don’t tgink this is serious then truly they have lost sight of the Constitution and what it means to be loyal to the US. Folks mind as well work for Russia or China then to help weaken the US.

  77. Tgca says:

    The IRS was severely reprimanded by Congress in the 90s for abusive techniques against taxpayers that led to congressional hearings. That “black eye” did not stop Lois Lerner and friends from abusing their IRS power and engaging in illegal behavior against tax entities.

    The only way to deter bad behavior is to prosecute lawbreakers. We’re not talking about folks accused of political talking points here, we’re talking about serious crimes that involve attempting to remove POTUS by falsifying information and providing it to courts for further weaponizing use.

    That is way beyond most crimes today against individuals such as one individual rape or murder since it goes to destroying and controlling our democratic institutions and impacting the ability to remain a free democratic nation. This borders on communistic behavior when a select few can control the will of the people.

  78. Chicon says:

    Tina, two separate cases. Fraud related to his firm’s bankruptcy, and extortion of Nike.

    This piece of trash was all over the networks – could they have more egg on their collective face?

  79. dblaikie says:

    Can’t understand it, but it seems that the largest glacier in Greenland is growing again and has been for the last two years. I wonder why? Of course, in order to keep the climate change folks from going crazy, the Scientists who discovered this surprising result comfortingly say that it is just a blimp and soon the Greenland ice cap will be shrinking once again.

  80. lisab says:

    This was an effort to destroy POTUS!

    yes, but i think more importantly, it was an attack against democracy.

    they wanted to overthrow an election.

    it should be investigated and the people involved should be SEVERELY prosecuted.

    there are few things where a country has to be completely above board, but elections is one of them. you just cannot have the fbi or other intelligence agency spying on a candidate without overwhelming evidence.

  81. lisab says:

    Michael Avenatti
    Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball.

    and then he got arrested 🙂

  82. Phil says:

    Does this mean Avenatti has actually closed the door on a presidential run?

  83. Tina says:

    Cn and n is having a bad week

    You make some worthy arguments about the counter-probe of Comey, et al.

  86. NYCmike says:

    “Nothing stunning about it. You’re both lawyers.”

    -Jul pops in with a good one!

  87. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw, mnw,

    Sorry about that, but law school definitely tends to teach individuals to avoid certain fights (going to trial), as one never knows how the 12 individuals will ultimately react.

    Am I incorrect in that assumption?

  88. Chicon says:

    NYC, you are indeed incorrect. Law school teaches how to bill the file as long as possible before settling the case. Except for government types, that is….

  89. Tina says:

    And papadope will be releasing his book tomorrow.

    He will mention more Fib issues.

    Hopefully, it is still ok to mention; the corrupt former fib leadership. Remember, the jebots said we were attacking “the entire men and women of the fib.”

  90. Bitterlaw says:

    93. You are wrong, NYC. Law school does not teach you how to settle cases or reach plea deals in criminal cases. It does the opposite because it trial strategy classes are not going to give a grade for a settlement or deal. The students spend s semester preparing a case that would end after 2 phone calls in the real world.

  91. NYCmike says:

    I stand corrected. Much appreciated.

  92. Wes says:

    Jose Serrano (D-NY) will retire next year. Probably meaningless given how old Serrano is. Still, he and Udall are noteworthy retirements.

  97. Tgca says:

    This is an interesting summary of some key reporting errors by the MSM in the Russian collusion. I would characterize some as just sloppy reporting but the MSM will never admit they often rushed to judgment and 2x checked sources and facts later. I don’t think this was as much Trump hatred, though the MSM has that, as much as I think it was who was going to scoop whom 1st. Again, sloppy reporting.

    So I think it’s funny all of a sudden all the Trump haters like Brennan, Comey, Lemon, Kristol, etc all are relieved there was no collusion. WTF are they kidding? They wanted to see Mueller make a case for collusion but now that its backfired and everyone is questioning the MSM and their judgment in hindsight, they’re like, we were hoping all along it just wasn’t true. Yeah, right!

    These are spineless cowards who are trying to change the narrative now that it is clear their extreme bias and hatred clouded their judgment and they were 100% wrong. In corporate, America or sports when someone goofs that bad over and over, they get the boot because they longer have no value to add that can be relied upon. In the MSM, it’s ignored.

  109. jason says:

    Kristol will be fine, he will still be making appearances as a “conservative”, much like David Brooks is the “conservative” at the NYT.

    Amoral Scumbag will still quote whatever he says on CNN and MSNBC.

    So Don Lemon and Avenatti were buddies according to article last year interviewing Lemon’s main squeeze, Tim Malone. Now CNN folks deleted photo from their Twitter showing them partying with Avenatti at Lemon’s House (2nd link).

    Am I misremembering or did Lemon make some sort of suggestions about Trump and the company he kept? Hmm…

  114. CG says:

    It’s nice that people want to hear from me. I have always said I would trust the conclusions reached by Robert Mueller and I stand by that. I have also said it would be good for the country if Trump is “cleared” of collusion charges and I stand by that. That doesn’t mean I do not have questions about the conclusions, and I believe the entire report should be released, as even Trump says he agrees, but I trust Mueller did his job by the book and that the people who deserved to be indicted and convicted were and those who were not did not deserve to be.

    I think the system worked. This was no “witch-hunt.” Illegal activity was found and prosecuted. Mueller did his job and now Trump must do his, and that is admitting that Russia attempted to interfere in the 2016 election (on his behalf- although that’s not the most important factor) and work to make sure that Russia understands they can never again attempt to do this.

    As a lay-person who of course did not have access to evidence, I think Trump is lucky to be “cleared” but I felt the same way about Hillary Clinton not being indicted in 2016. I trusted that was the appropriate conclusion as well and accepted it. Her fans “celebrated” and she led her party to defeat. It is very likely that Trump will do the same thing to his party.

    So, congrats to Trump for not colluding with Russia. He is still a miserable liar and a wretched person across the board. Nobody can clear him of that and the fact that so many of his fans have to go so overboard to “celebrate” this on his behalf I think demonstrates the guilt they feel for having to defend such an individual.

    If a case can ever be proven that he has broken the law in any regard, be it campaign finance, or perjury or whatever, he deserves to be held responsible. Nobody is above the law.

  115. lisab says:

    I have also said it would be good for the country if Trump is “cleared” of collusion charges and I stand by that.

  118. jason says:

    It must suck to be a bitter, revengeful, petty jerk like Corey.

    You can condense his whole post into ” I still can’t get over the fact Trump trashed my candidate”.

    If Corey was honest he would admit he was hoping somehow this “investigation” based on fake news and partisan officials was going to overturn the results of the election.

    We should all celebrate that it didn’t.

    Corey sounds sad and pathetic. What a surprise.

  119. NYCmike says:

  122. CG says:

    Yes, root for him to determine the truth. I trust he has, according to the letter of the law. I doubt Trump fans would be saying the same if something was “found.”

    From a purely political standpoint, this makes it more likely that Trump will be the 2020 GOP nominee, but we all pretty much accepted that months ago anyway. People who actually want Republicans to win in 2020 should not feel good about that.

    I have always said I hope it is true that the POTUS did not conspire with Russia to try to steal an election so I am glad that is the apparent finding. I also have said from the day Donald Trump came down an escalator that he should resign from public life and I still think he should.

    He is bad for conservatism, the Republican Party, and most of all America.

  123. CG says:

    Who is going to attempt to make the case that Donald Trump is a good person?

    You all know he is not, but most of you concede you simply do not care.

  124. CG says:

    So, while I do not challenge the apparent findings that he did not collude with Russia to influence the election, I think there are several people here who would indeed defend DJT if he shot a person on Fifth Avenue. You all know who you are.

  125. jason says:

    “For now, the best thing to do is to root for Mueller.”

    LOL. Nice catch.

  126. lisab says:

    Yes, root for him to determine the truth.

    nice try, that was not the context,

    you wanted mueller to force him out of the election

    (tee hee 🙂 )

  127. CG says:

    And as I said, I applaud Mueller for doing his job well. I consider my “rooting” validated. Even Trump is now saying today that Mueller, the guy who was regularly referred to on here with Nazi terminology, is a man of honor. What a change.

    If Trump goes down to defeat in 2020, many of you will wish that something had happened to get Trump not to run again or for the party to not be blindly loyal to him.

  128. lisab says:

    Who is going to attempt to make the case that Donald Trump is a good person?

    who can claim to look into a man’s soul?

  129. CG says:

    Finding the truth comes before the particulars of an election. I wanted him to find the truth as it relates to any individual. I also want Trump to resign and/or drop out. Both can be true.

  130. NYCmike says:

    “I doubt Trump fans would be saying the same if something was “found.””

    -I actually agree with you putting the word “found” in “”.

  131. CG says:

    Trump (and his defenders) should also admit he was wrong that George W. Bush was guilty of impeachable offenses, as Trump claimed many times, and that the 9/11 Commission made it perfectly clear that 9/11 was not an “inside job” as Trump claimed many times, up through the last election.

  132. NYCmike says:

    “And as I said, I applaud Mueller for doing his job well. I consider my “rooting” validated. Even Trump is now saying today that Mueller, the guy who was regularly referred to on here with Nazi terminology, is a man of honor. What a change.”

    I need to start applying my political standard to “CG”……ignore 90-99% of what he says.

  135. CG says:

    So who is right?

    Tina who called Mueller “Fuhrer” or Trump who now calls Mueller a man of honor who acted with integrity?

    I’ll to with Trump on this one, but I recognize Trump just likes to kiss up to anyone who validates him in anyway. It’s a clear psyche issue with Trump.

  136. jason says:

    Who is going to attempt to make the case that Donald Trump is a good person?”

    The goalposts are moving…

    Is that the only standard to judge Trump on?

    Corey has no credibility on who is or isn’t a good person, having been on record here as saying Hillary Clinton “was a better person” than Trump.

    Obama was a compulsive liar and a complete fraud for 8 years.. was he a “good” person. Was JFK a “good person”? Lyndon Johnson? Nixon?

    I prefer to judge Trump on his policies and the results of Presidency, not his “person”. I think he has been a good President even if I don’t agree with a lot of his polices. He has certainly been much better of a President if you are a conservative than Hillary would have been.

    I didn’t vote for Trump because I didn’t think he was fit for office. He has proved me wrong. Corey should admit he has proven him wrong too and move on.

  137. CG says:

    You will ignore it because you cannot answer it. It’s too inconvenient for you.

    Trump joined in with the radical left-wingers in saying that GWB was a war criminal who needed to be impeached and in saying that 9/11 was caused by the U.S. government.

    So, you just toss it aside, but if I criticize Trump on here for having a crooked tie (which I never have), you will scream and cry about how unfair I am being.

    Trump also should apologize to the “Central Park Five” and to Barack Obama for continuing to push the “Birther” issue long after it was proven to be demonstrably false.

  138. CG says:

    All those people named are better people than Trump. Many of them had serious flaws of their own of course.

  139. CG says:

    I think I have been proven right that Trump is unfit for any office.

    We all have to reach our own conclusions. I stand by my convictions, unlike some.

  140. Wes says:

    Is Corey Diogenes now, walking through the streets looking for a good man?

    I’m no Trump supporter, but let’s be realistic. Trump has always had the persona of a pompous, sanctimonious windbag. He hasn’t changed an iota in office. As I’ve said many times I keep hoping Trump will grow in the office and quit irritating people with his thin-skinned pettiness.

    I’ve never thought he was a good man though.

    At least in contrast to his predecessor he hasn’t tried to declare himself dictator of the Senate with the ability to determine its schedule.

  141. CG says:

    Now, since jason is here, but I am leaving in a couple minutes, let me know when you want to arrange a wager on your Buttigieg predictions.

  142. jason says:

    I never subscribed to a lot of the attacks on Mueller here. I always said I thought he basically was an honorable person.

    But I do think he was influenced by a lot of partisan hacks working for him or giving him information.

    I am not convinced he should have prosecuted a lot of unrelated cases against Manafort and Flynn, I think he did that to get them to turn on Trump, so he used them as bait and destroyed their lives in the process.

    I think he himself was lead to believe in the collusion theory and may have been surprised to find out it was bogus. I commend him for not digging a deeper hole so to speak.

  143. jason says:

    Corey, I will take 10 to 1 odds on Buttigieg, which is actually more generous than Predictit.

  144. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Please rejoice with me Trump’s granting annexation of the Golan Heights to Israel. As a fellow member of the Tribe, you can, at the least, thank the President for a job well done on this issue.

  145. Wes says:

    On a nondivisive (I hope) note, things in the Senate are shaping up nicely for the GOP.

    Dems have failed to attract their top recruits in MT, CO, and NC, leaving them with C-listers against capable incumbents in each race. By retiring, Tom Udall seems to be indicating Dems aren’t sanguine about recapturing the upper House.

    Meanwhile, Doug Jones increasingly looks like a political Dead Man Walking even as John James is mulling the race in MI, where he would be a competitive underdog against nondescript incumbent Gary Peters.

    Republicans haven’t gained seats in the Senate in a presidential year since 2004. Early on, 2020 seems to be bucking that trend.

    Of course things can change, but currently this cycle feels friendlier to the GOP than 2008, 2012, or 2016.

  146. Tina says:

    The 13 angry drats chose Mulehead,

    Mulehead did not choose them,

    Pretty clear what the scheme team did here.

  147. jason says:

    I disagreed with Trump on his attacks on GWB, the birther issue, and certainly some of his 9/11 comments.

    So what? I disagree with him on the wall, on protectionism, tariffs, NATO…

    I can disagree with him on issues and still support him on where I think he is doing a good job. Energy, judges, deregulation. climate change, taxes.. these things are now more important to me than his stupid birther crusade against Obama.

    You have to be able to process new information, Corey is still stuck with what Trump said about Obama? Geezus.

  148. Tina says:

    Yes, I called Mulehead Fuhrer. There is no honor in this “war hero.”

    I also called Rhee, Tito

    And Weissman, Benito.

    Thank goodness when Benito was knee capped by Barr, Fuhrer quit.

  149. Tgca says:

    When race baiter Obama…remember those who cling to their Bibles and guns…apologizes to the US for continuously race baiting for 8 years, then he can deserve an apology for birther comments.

    When Jeb Bush apologizes for his sexual predator father grabbing young women by the @$$ which by the way would get you arrested and convicted in most places, we can apologize for comments on the Bushes.

  150. Tina says:

    And I am laugh8 g my arse off that the jebots are calling Mulehead, Putin’s Agent.

  151. Tina says:

    Makes no sense that Mitchie8# blocking the report in the senate,

  155. Bitterlaw says:

    Who is going to attempt to make the case that Donald Trump is a good person?

    You all know he is not, but most of you concede you simply do not care.

    Not me. I think he is a vile dirtbag. If he was in my neighborhood, I would hide my wife and daughter from him. I would cross a busy highway on foot to avoid shaking his hand. If I needed change for a dollar, I would not trust him to give me more than 60 cents in return.

    Still, I am thankful every day that he defeated Hillary.

  156. Chicon says:

    CG says “I think the system worked. This was no “witch-hunt.” Illegal activity was found and prosecuted.”

    Half-truth strikes again. He’s well aware that not one of those prosecuted was charged with anything relating to Russia and the election. Mueller actually said Russia tried, but failed. So it was a which hunt in the fact that no collusion was ever in the picture.

  157. mnw says:


    RE: Senate 2020

    U asserted that the mountain west, in which you included NM, “hates Trump.*”

    What would that make Gardner & McSally, then? I don’t see this as shaping up as a promising GOP year in the Senate races at this point.

    *Personally, I believe that the mountain west is trending DEM for the same reason CA did; demographic change based on mass immigration.

  158. mnw says:

    “Who is going to make the case that Trump is a good person?”

    1) I didn’t vote for him to be my pastor.

    2) He seems damn fine to me.

    3) I don’t care whether he’s a “good person.” I just don’t care. Most of the Presidents during my lifetime have been jerks.

    The “best person” we’ve ever had was probably Jimmy Carter, btw. Anybody want him back?

  159. Tina says:

    John Cardillo
    I told you guys I had become a big AG Bill Barr fan.

    Since his confirmation:

    – IRS guy who leaked Cohen’s bank records prosecuted
    – Rosenstein sidelined
    – Weissmann kicked out of DOJ
    – Mueller’s witch hunt ended
    – Trump cleared
    – Avenatti arrested

  160. Wes says:

    I mentioned Gardner, Mnw. Dems haven’t been able to lure Hickenlooper into the race and are left with also-fans who have a history of blowing races. That doesn’t mean Gardner is a lock for re-election, but it does mean the GOP Senator in the worst position for reelection can breathe a bit easier.

    I neglected to mention McSally because I was focusing on the races naturally opening up next year. She is a question mark because Dems May have a divisive primary. If that happens McSally is clearly favored, as she will be if Trump carries the state again.

    Of course if Dems avoid a divisive primary and Trump loses AZ—both distinct possibilities—then McSally is in trouble. Trump had the weakest showing of any Republican presidential candidate since 1996 in AZ three years ago and was definitely a factor in the state’s leftward trend last year. Ultimately McSally will most likely rise or fall based on whether AZ continues its trend against Trump. If so, she likely loses. If not, she almost certainly wins.

  161. Wes says:

    I’m curious as to why you’re pessimistic on the Senate races, Mnw. I posted my reasons for thinking the GOP will do well based on recent developments. Of course I noted things are subject to change, but from what I’ve seen thus far, Dems look unlikely to make significant gains, if any at all, in the Senate.

  162. Wes says:

    I could be reading too much into Udall’s retirement, but I have a hard time believing a Senator from a safe seat with plum committee assignments is going to forego re-election if he expects to be in the majority in two years.

    That’s just my take.

    Most of the seats up next year are in states Dems have structural problems in and are at best unlikely to carry. That makes me think 2020 will be a reverse 2012 barring a major sea change.

    For instance, if the KSGOP puts Pat Roberts’ seat in danger by nominating Kris Kobach, Dems may well see a resurgence in their hopes of capturing a majority.

  163. lisab says:

    it has been said a good way to judge a politician is by his children, because it is difficult to hide your flaws as a parent

    167. *Personally, I believe that the mountain west is trending DEM for the same reason CA did; demographic change based on mass immigration.”

    Agree on the impact of mass immigration.

  165. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    John Brennan certainly changed his tune:


    “@JohnBrennan Hmmm…your bizarre tweets and recent temper tantrums reveal your panic over the likelihood the Special Counsel will soon further complicate your life, putting your political & financial future in jeopardy. Fortunately, Lady Justice does not do NDAs.


    “Brennan on MSNBC: Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was. I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government over our election.”

    And his guy once heading the CIA?

    Why does Brennan’s behavior signify surprise just because he headed the CIA? Grandpa Groper Bush headed the CIA too and that did not stop him from monitoring their ASSets.

  168. Bitterlaw says:

    Where does Tg find these obviously fake recipes? Who would actually eat that?

  169. Barrett says:

    I was very confident that Mueller’s report wasn’t going to hold any damnable evidence – simply based on the fact that it took 22 months.

    As the investigation drew out longer and longer, I realized that Mueller had probably covered all the bases he thought that he needed to. The extension of the investigation was likely to tie up loose ends and make sure no new information from Manafort, Stone, etc. came forth.

    Also, it was probably political manuevering by the Mueller Team. An extended investigation meant that their findings would be released when Dems held the house.

    Either way, it’s good news. To have the “opposition” investigate you and say “I couldn’t find any collusion, despite a two year investigation and all resources at my disposal” is an indication that we got the truth on this one.

    Does Trump have shady dealings? I’m sure of it. But did he work with the Russian government or Russian individuals to change the results of the election? Extremely doubtful at this point.

    Good to talk to you guys again, the last couple of months have been crazy.

Of course, in order to keep the climate change folks from going crazy, the Scientists who discovered this surprising result comfortingly say that it is just a blimp and soon the Greenland ice cap will be shrinking once again.”

    It is not just Greenland, it is in Iceland as well:

    DECEMBER 6, 2018
    According to researchers from the University of Iceland, ALL Icelandic glaciers are projected to expand this year, this would make it the first time the glaciers wouldn’t have shrunk year-on-year in a quarter of a century.
    The researchers were shocked by the discovery that all of Iceland’s glaciers, including Vatnajökull, Langjökull, Hofsjökull and Mýrdalsjökull, have expanded in the last twelve months, from autumn to autumn. With Mýrdalsjökull showing a really “significant addition of ice this year.”
    “[This] is unusual over the last 25 years,” said project manager Finnur Pálsson”.

    Likewise many areas of California had record cold this winter.

    Many scientists now believe we are going into a cold period, based on solar forces. This theory is horrifying the global warming crowd, which has become almost cult-like in its belief system.

    The Pentagon notified Congress late Monday that it authorized the transfer of up to $1 billion to erect 57 miles of “pedestrian fencing” along the U.S.-Mexico border in direct support of President Trump’s national emergency declaration from last month.

    The fencing, which will be 18 feet high, is to be erected in the Yuma and El Paso sectors, the statement read. The Pentagon’s announcement was notable. A reporter from the New York Times tweeted that it is the first time the funds will be transferred under section 284 for the border wall.

    Robbie and CD;
    Now this is WINNING!!! A new Appelate Judge on the Ninth Circuit with true conservative credentials.

  180. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    I would think that most Americans would like a reckoning for the Main Stream Media.

    Let’s start with FOX News and the first head to roll should be Judge Andrew Napalitano, who in December, 2018, stated that Don Trump, Jr. was going down. In his distaste for Trump, Andrew has claimed other falsehoods and exaggerations.
    Then, FOX should consider axing Shep Smith, Chris Wallace, Kennedy and Charles Gasparino. Can you think of others?

  181. Chicon says:

    Sheeple – that would make Fox more the conservative version of CNN and MSNBC. No thanks. A little bit of balance is ok.

  182. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    These two videos of the Gaza conflagration have gove viral. One shows the world of being Israeli and living in the Southern part of the Country and the second shows Israel’s military might.

  183. dblaikie says:

    At the least I want Judge Napalitano to say he was wrong about there being a sealed indictment against Trump.

    And as for Smith, he had the gall to lead off his news program with Avenaniti rather than there being no collusion. For the last two years he has been belittling Trump and has been unable to hide his excitement that the Mueller investigation was going to verify that the President was just as bad as he was reporting. Shep needs to go!

  184. Bitterlaw says:

    The solution to biased news is to have more biased news but from the other side? Got it.

    How about justvreporting the news? Let the opinion segments have OPINION scrolling at the bottom of the screen. No need to become a conservative MSNBC or CNN.

    Hardly. FOX has the great attorney Andy McCarthy to replace “Eddie Munster” Napalitano and a whole slew of Never Trumpers(Stierwalt, J. Goldberg etc) and Liberals(M. Marsh, Harf, Charles Lane, AB Stoddard etc) who would continue to provide news and commentary.
    If conservatives expect MSNBC and CNN to clean house, then FOX should lead the way in canning their reporters and commentators who engaged in unfair falsehoods and innuendo during the Mueller investigation.

  188. Wes says:

    Andrew Napolitano has always been a kook. He once claimed Obama had no right to order the strike against bin Laden because that somehow meant the President could have anyone he wanted killed.

    Pure lunatic.

    SanDiegoRetard’s great proof against global warming is a fake news website called a site with no credentials and a handful of twitter followers. None of its “facts” are cited whatsoever.

    Are you that f*cking stupid or have you spent too much time in an echo chamber?

    Oh wait, it’s both.

  194. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    Despite Trump’s attempts to corrupt our nation’s institutions the trend is clear in terms of average temperatures:

    “The 10 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1998, and the four warmest years on record have all occurred since 2014. Looking back to 1988, a pattern emerges: except for 2011, as each new year is added to the history, it becomes one of the top 10 warmest on record at that time, but it is ultimately replaced as the “top ten” window shifts forward in time.”

    “The concept of an average temperature for the entire globe may seem odd. After all, at this very moment, the highest and lowest temperatures on Earth are likely more than 100°F (55°C) apart. Temperatures vary from night to day and between seasonal extremes in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. This means that some parts of Earth are quite cold while other parts are downright hot. To speak of the “average” temperature, then, may seem like nonsense. However, the concept of a global average temperature is convenient for detecting and tracking changes in Earth’s energy budget—how much sunlight Earth absorbs minus how much it radiates to space as heat—over time.

    “To calculate a global average temperature, scientists begin with temperature measurements taken at locations around the globe. Because their goal is to track changes in temperature, measurements are converted from absolute temperature readings to temperature anomalies—the difference between the observed temperature and the long-term average temperature for each location and date. Multiple independent research groups across the world perform their own analysis of the surface temperature data, and they all show a similar upward trend. ”


    So unbelievably f*cking stupid. Hopefully SanDiegoRetard becomes SanDiegoObituary soons enough.

    Hopefully TIPW takes a remedial English course “soons enough,” (sic) too. Once an illiterate adzclown, always an illiterate adzclown.

    If the planet was warming because of natural factors, there would be a string of warm years recently. However, that would also happen if people were causing it. So, the recent trend does not prove one over the other.
