  1. More questionable behavior and illegal snooping on a CBS reporter from Obama’s DoJ. And what looks like an attempt to cover up their illegal deeds by the DoJ’s IG..

    “Everyone hopes the Department of Justice’s inspector general (IG) will fairly investigate surveillance activities conducted on U.S. citizens by the FBI and intel agencies. Just like we hope the IG’s office will reach fair conclusions in its probes of alleged FBI misconduct concerning the Hillary Clinton investigation, leaks to the media and conflicts of interest.

    But, for me, there’s reason to be wary.

    I turned to the IG’s office in 2013 after independent forensics proved my computers had been infiltrated by remote intruders using software proprietary to a federal intel agency. Instead of fair findings, I got a lot of mischief and stonewalling.”

    “Not long ago, my forensics team asked if I used that Apple computer after the IG returned it. My team was conducting a new exam. “No,” I replied, “it hasn’t functioned since before I gave it to the IG. I just stored it when they returned it. Why?”

    “Because — that’s not your hard drive inside the computer they gave back to you,” they told me. “… We know the serial number on the hard drive when you bought it. We recorded the same serial number on our earlier forensics exams. This is a different hard drive. Completely different serial number. Not even close.”

    I would never have known if we hadn’t gone back in that computer for additional forensics.

    In addition to somebody changing the scope of the IG investigation midstream, and the office withholding from me the notes and the report on my own complaint, somebody also switched out my hard drive before the IG returned it to me.

    What does all this mean to the integrity of the DOJ’s inspector general?

    You decide.”

  2. Sure. Let’s politicize and rile the mentally ill.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    “A Texas Antifa student group hosted a six month health program to “politicize” students with “mental illnesses,” according to a Thursday report.

    The Revolutionary Student Front at the University of Texas at Austin hosted a “Revolutionary Mental Health Program” “to address the mental health needs of students in a way that would primarily serve to politicize and strengthen them, to become more committed to revolution and more capable of carrying it out,” reported Far Left Watch.

    The UT Austin Antifa student group based its 2017 program on “Turn Illness Into A Weapon,” a book charting the neo-Marxist Socialist Patients Collective group’s actions in Germany, which placed the blame of mental illness on capitalist oppression.

    The Revolutionary Student Front sought to create a health care system that not only treated students for their mental illnesses, but also mobilized them to fight capitalism.

    “The primary method of combating the symptoms of mental illness that we face under capitalism must be organizing those suffering to come into violent class conflict with the system that creates their illness,” said the group in its 13,000-word manifesto.”

  4. Of course it is Kizzie, it’s CNN 🙂

    It’s called a joke Ricky, and he’s got a million of ’em. 🙂

    Even CNN knows this. Apparently you lost your sense of humor, and you also missed this from your twice posted Tweet link.

    “The remarks, delivered inside the ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago estate during a lunch and fundraiser, were upbeat, lengthy, and peppered with jokes and laughter.”

    See, a joke.

    “Here are a dozen of the President’s top jokes from the dinner:

    On Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation:

    “I offered him a ride over, and he recused himself. What are you gonna do? But that’s OK.”

    On the “failing New York Times”:

    “You, The New York Times, are an icon. I’m a New York icon, you’re a New York icon. And the only difference is, I still own my buildings.”

    On Vice President Mike Pence’s “Graham rule:”:

    “The other day we were in line shaking hands with men and women, and a woman came over to shake his hand and he said, ‘I’m sorry I can’t do that, my wife is not here.’ He’s 25 years ahead of his time, folks.”

    On talk of impeachment:

    “Lately, [Pence has been] showing a particularly keen interest in the news these days. He starts out each morning asking everyone, ‘Has he been impeached yet?’ Mike, you can’t be impeached when there’s no crime, please remember that.”

    “On the “opposition party”:

    “It might be hard for you to believe, but I do love gatherings like these. They give you a chance to socialize with members of the opposition party, it’s very important. And it’s also great to see some Democrats here also.”

  5. By you did manage a public service for me and the others. You have now shown me two more Never-Trump frauds, one at the WaPo and one at the NYTimes that can now be skipped when I see something they wrote.

    If they are too lazy to do a little research to determine he was joking, then they aren’t worth my time. Or they knew he was, and just lied due to their bias.

    Either way, I’ll skip ’em, so thanks for that, I guess.

  6. The Gridiron dinner is an exclusive gathering for the elite press and is expected to be humorous:

    “The Gridiron Club is best known for its annual dinner which traditionally features the United States Marine Band, along with satirical musical skits by the members and remarks by the President of the United States and representatives of each political party. The skits and speeches by various politicians are expected to be self-deprecating or otherwise sharply comedic.”

  7. Good evening, Debra. The speech on which CNN reported was not to The Gridiron Club. It was an earlier speech to Republican donors. Someone secretly taped the speech and gave a copy to CNN.

  8. Supporters of a lifetime dictatorship in China were buoyed by Trump’s words. Other world leaders (like many Republican “leaders”) were frightened into silence.

    Is not referring to the Gridiron affair either. The fundraiser was the same. It was a joke, but unlike the joke of a reaction from Never-Trumpers, his was actually funny.

  10. More than funny, Xi found Trump’s remarks absolutely inspiring. It is amazing what a little flattery and the red carpet can do with some “leaders”.
