I Do Not Understand How The Left Can Be So Consumed By Hate Over This Touching Moment

As President Trump signed the "Right to Try Act" into law Wednesday afternoon a little boy, 8-year-old Jordan McLinn, was by his side.
Jordan suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a terminal degenerative genetic disease.  DMD is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness appearing in patients as early as age 3 first affecting the muscles of the hips, pelvic area, thighs and shoulders and later the skeletal (voluntary) muscles in the arms, legs and trunk. By the early teens, the heart and respiratory muscles also are affected.
Children afflicted with DMD are likely to be wheelchair-bound by the age of 12. Life expectancy was until recently very short.  Many do not survive beyond their teens.
The insidiousness of the disease is that due to a mutation in the dystrophin gene, the body stops making the protein that holds muscles together.  Over time, all of the muscles degenerate. Finally, the disease causes breathing complications and destroys the heart.
Supporters say the legislation signed by President Trump Wednesday could help McLinn get access to experimental drugs and treatments not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The President was a vocal supporter of efforts to gain access to experimental treatments while on the campaign trail in 2016 and in his State of the Union address he called upon Congress to pass the bill saying, “patients who are terminally ill should have access to experimental treatment immediately” and “should not have to go from country to country to seek a cure”.
The new Right to Try act allows patients with life-threatening diseases to bypass the FDA’s application process for “compassionate use” of experimental drugs. Patients seeking access to “investigational drugs” now need only the approval of their physician and the drug manufacturer.
The new bill protects doctors and companies from the legal risks of allowing unapproved treatments unless they intentionally harm a patient. The policy that patients must have exhausted all other approved treatments and clinical trial options still remains.
Little Jordan has dreamed for all of his short life about being a firefighter when he grows up. He likely will not live long enough to realize his dream. 

The fury of #theresistance is bottomless.  They are angry at Americans for electing Donald Trump as President and are outraged by anyone who supports him.  They have not yet found a way to quell their anger and each day brings with it a new reason to stoke the fire.  The rage has actually diminished their ability to be kind.  They can’t put aside their political differences even for this sweet moment:

Guy Who Couldn’t Get Re-Elected By His Own Party Wants To Challenge Trump In 2020

Ever since January of this year, Sen. Jeff Flake (RINO-AZ), has had a bug up his ass.
Flake decided last year not to run for re-election in 2018 after opinion polls in his home state made it brutally clear he had zero chance of winning.  A central figure in the Never Trump movement, Flake recently compared Trump to the savage communist dictator Josef Stalin.
He is said to be exploring a possible run for president in 2020.  I’m sure he’s had his dangly parts tickled by Cap’n Bill Kristol who is desperate to primary President Trump.
Joseph Curl described the senator this way, “Jeff Flake has got it all: He’s tall, buff and handsome, with a made-for-TV smile. He lives in a huge house in a gated community (with high walls, of course), has a pretty blonde wife and five fabulous children. Plus, he’s a member of one of the most exclusive clubs in the World: The Senate.”
Curl continues, “The telegenic senator now spends more time in green rooms than he does in the Senate chamber, with liberal networks clamoring for a Republican who will diss the sitting president.”
“The mainstream media loves him now, slamming his fellow Republican at every turn, but if he were to run as a Republican, he’d suffer the same fate Mr. McCain did: The MSM turned on him and diced him up into little pieces.”
“Mr. Flake will do what all the others do when they leave Congress: Slide right through the revolving door and get a cushy job with a massive salary. That way he can build a bigger wall around his house.”
On May 29th, in a speech delivered at Harvard Law School's 2018 Class Day Flake criticized President Trump and Congress, saying the presidency has been "debased."
“Not to be unpleasant, but I do bring news from our nation’s capital. First, the good news: Your national leadership is… not good. At all. Our presidency has been debased by a figure who has a seemingly bottomless appetite for destruction and division and only a passing familiarity with how the constitution works.”
“And our Article I branch of government, the Congress (that’s me), is utterly supine in the face of the moral vandalism that flows from the White House daily. I do not think that the founders could have anticipated that the beauty of their invention might someday founder on the rocks of reality television, and that the Congress would be such willing accomplices to this calamity. Our most ardent enemies, doing their worst (and they are doing their worst), couldn’t hurt us more than we are hurting ourselves.”
“Now, you might reasonably ask, where is the good news in that?”
“Well, simply put: We may have hit bottom.”
“My sounding this alarm against a government that was elected under the Republican banner and that calls itself conservative makes me no less Republican or conservative. And opposing this president and much of what he stands for is not an act of apostasy — it is, rather, an act of fidelity.”
You can read the rest of his pathetic drivel here if you have the stomach for it.

President Trump: “A Moment I Will Always Remember”

During his second Memorial Day trip to Arlington National Cemetery, President Trump laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. During customary remarks following the wreath laying ceremony, he recognized military figures including Bob Dole, the former senator from Kansas; 106-year-old Navy veteran Ray Chavez, the oldest living survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor; and a little boy named Christian Jacobs whose daddy is buried on the sacred soil of Section 60 in Arlington.
Last year little Christian showed President Trump his father’s grave. The President called  it  “a moment I will never forget.”
Christian's dad, Marine Sgt. Christopher James Jacobs was killed at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, CA on October 24, 2011 during a training exercise. Christian was only eight months old when his daddy was killed.
"He looked me square in the eyes and gave me a firm handshake," President Trump said regarding their 2017 Memorial Day meeting. "That 6-year-old stood strong and tall and proud in front of the Commander-in-Chief just as his dad would have wanted. It's extraordinary."
Heart-wrenching photographs of Christian and his mom Brittany visiting his father's grave at Arlington have been snapped by Defense Department photographers for at least the last three years.
According to, it was unclear whether the pair had ever spent time with former President Obama during his Arlington Memorial Day visits.

Cap’n Bill And The Mailman’s Son Want To “Save America”

The effete aristocrat who loves opera, Greek philosophy and battles President Trump in his magazine The Weekly Standard, on CNN and MSNBC and his quirky Twitter account has come up with a stratagem to save America.
During the 2016 primary season he watched in abject horror as one GOP candidate after the other (Rick Perry, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich) surrendered to the man he called “loathsome”, “a con man”, “a charlatan and a demagogue”.
Trump didn’t just steamroll the Republican field he made a mockery of the cherished conservative ideals Kristol has spent more than 30 years touting.
Each year The Weekly Standard embarks on an annual cruise for which its subscribers pay several thousand dollars for a cabin on the ship and a chance to spend time with its founder Cap’n Bill Kristol.
During the 2017 cruise, Kristol’s sardonic sense of the gallows began to anger his readers. His unrelenting drumbeat of criticism for the Trump Administration grew pointless and his readers told him so every chance they got.
To Trump, Kristol IS the rigged system he’s fighting against, the personification of an elite establishment overdue for a rude awakening.
Kristol has a reputation for predictions gone wrong. In 2002, he said military action in Iraq “would start a chain reaction in the Arab world that would be very healthy.” He insisted the Bush tax cuts would ease the deficit, rather than exploding it. In 2008, he predicted Obama would not win a single presidential primary; in 2011, that Rudy Giuliani would run for President; and, in 2015, that Joe Biden would. On different occasions late in the Obama era, Kristol declared that Jennifer Granholm, the former Michigan governor, was about to be picked as a Supreme Court Justice and likely to wind up on a national ticket as Obama’s Vice-President.
Kristol badly wants a Republican to primary President Trump in 2020. The smarmy “conservative” has been traveling to Iowa and New Hampshire in search of that someone.
In New Hampshire this past Wednesday, Kristol, speaking to an audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics said two-term Ohio Gov. John Kasich would be "the most obvious candidate" to primary Trump though the governor’s personality and moderate politics have turned off leaders in Kristol’s orbit. No shit, Sherlock.
Kristol acknowledged that he could be wrong about the state of the Republican Party—that it’s possible Republicans won’t be convinced they made a mistake and will re-nominate Trump.

Don’tcha just love the manner in which Brit Hume humiliates the RINOs?  Yeah. Me too.

He Who Gigglefits Last Gigglefits Best

Nancy Pelosi got whipsawed today. 
Before her weekly press conference, the letter President Trump sent to North Korea’s Kim Jong Un informing him he had canceled the June 12 summit in Singapore reached members of Congress and was being widely reported across all news outlets.
When she took the lectern, she was queried about the news.  She said the North Korean leader was the “big winner”.  Pelosi said, “I think it’s a good thing for Kim Jong Un. Here you had a thug, a person who killed his own family members, a person who runs a police state, being legitimized by the President of the United States. They were on par with each other. He got global recognition and regard. He’s the big winner. When he got this letter from the president saying ‘OK, never mind’—he must be having a giggle fit right there in North Korea.”
She added, “This takes preparation. This takes knowledge. This takes judgment. And clearly it takes preparation, which the President didn’t make. It’s clear he didn’t know what he was getting into, and now he’s walking away from it in this very chummy, palsy-walsy letter to Kim Jong Un. He, Kim Jong Un, is the big winner. It’s unfortunate because as you say you want to be optimistic.”
Around 7:00 PM reports were coming in that Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-Gwan had issued a statement in response to the President’s letter vowing to continue to pursue peace and signaled it would give Washington more time to consider talks.
“Our goal and will is to do everything for peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and mankind remains unchanged and we are always willing to give an opportunity to the U.S. side with a big and open mind.  We express our intent that there is willingness to sit at any time, in any way to resolve issues.”

You Can Meet Me In Singapore Now Or You Can Meet My Little Friends Later

While The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer prioritized stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, he failed to consider Russia, China and North Korea as threats and maintained the United States shouldn’t build any new nuclear weapons. 
The last time America’s nuclear posture was reviewed was in 2010.  In the eight years since the world has changed dramatically.  Russia has emerged as a serious adversary, China began a massive land grab in the South China Sea and North Korea has developed and launched test missiles at an ever-increasing pace.
Mutually assured destruction from nuclear powers terrifies us all.  Most of us envision silos with massive ICBMs.  Yes, those still exist but a new class of smaller nuclear weapons comprise our arsenal.
The proliferation of precision-guided low-yield nuclear weapons now means that smaller explosives hitting closer to targets preclude the need for massive nuclear explosions that would almost certainly, in any use case, kill civilians.
The Washington Times reported today that North Korea stood up U.S. officials in Singapore who waited for three days to take a meeting that was intended to set the stage for the now-canceled summit.
The snub was but one part of a “trail of broken promises” and a “strange lack of judgment” by the hermit kingdom that led to President Trump canceling the summit today.
Like the old Fram oil filter commercials of the late 70’s where a car repairman warns, “You can pay me now or you can pay me later,” President Trump said during his remarks before signing into law the bill that rolls back the onerous Dodd-Frank bill, that he had spoken with Defense Secretary James Mattis who assured him the U.S. military is “ready if necessary” if “foolish or reckless acts” are taken by North Korea.  He held out hope the summit would get back on track adding, “Nobody should be anxious.  We have to get it right.”

Can’t Wait To Find Something New On Netflix?

Netflix announced on Monday that it had formed a “storytelling partnership” with the Obamas. The multi-year agreement paves the way for the Obamas to produce anything from scripted series to documentaries and features.
“We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world,” the former President said in a statement.
Netflix’s content chief Ted Sarandos said in a statement that the Obamas are “uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better.”
According to Fortune, some Netflix users have complained that the move could turn political and have voiced their concerns. A day after the news was announced many people are still taking to Twitter to say they’re canceling their subscriptions.
For its part, Netflix declined Fortune‘s request for comment on the complaints and instead said it had nothing more to share beyond its statement on Monday. It’s also worth noting that Twitter complaints do not necessarily translate to subscriptions. And since Netflix has 125 million memberships to its streaming service, it’s unlikely the number of cancellations will put a dent in that number.  Hmmm.
It's not the first time Netflix has faced conservative backlash. In March,  The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer’s UN Ambassador Susan Rice joined the Netflix board of directors. Some subscribers were outraged because of inaccurate statements Rice made in 2012 after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings was critical of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Hastings endorsed Hillary Clinton and said, "Trump would destroy much of what is great about America."  Double hmmm.

The Mentally Deficient Ramblings Of Someone Who Is Reliving The Same Day Over And Over And Over Again

The forecast for New Haven, CT on Sunday called for rain, so the Yale Class Day festivities were moved from the Old Campus to Woolsey Hall.
The Ivy League school called upon one of its alumna to speak to the Class of 2018.  The alumna was none other than Granny Clinton─the pathetic shrew who gave Putin a reset button, got wrecked in the 2016 Presidential Election and now suffers from Stockholm Syndrome.
As I mentioned above, the forecast called for rain.  So, the dreariness of the day was intensified by an equally dreary speaker who spoke for an hour about losing.
“Right now, we’re living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy,” Granny said during her Class Day speech. “No, there are not tanks in the streets, but what’s happening right now goes to the heart of who we are as a nation, and I say this not as a Democrat who lost an election but as an American afraid of losing a country.”
“There are certain things that are so essential they should transcend politics. Waging a war on the rule of law and a free press, de-legitimizing elections, perpetrating shameless corruption and rejecting the idea that our leaders should be public servants undermines our national unity. And attacking truth and reason, evidence and facts should alarm us all.”
Congratulations on your graduation, Yalies.  Enjoy!
The Ice Cube In Heels at first made light of her searing election loss. “I am thrilled for all of you, even the three of you who live in Michigan and didn’t request your absentee ballots in time,” she said. She also poked fun at the investigation of Russian meddling in the election. It is a Class Day tradition for the seniors to wear silly, imaginative headgear and Clinton held up a Russian ushanka hat saying, “I brought a hat too—a Russian hat. Look, I mean, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!”
Her second run at the presidency didn’t work out, her book sales flopped and now she’s trying her hand at standup comedy?
Please run again Hillary. 
Your sour-grapes-fueled pity party lacks any shred of humor.  Can you imagine anything less inspiring than the mentally deficient ramblings of someone who is reliving the same day over and over and over again with her clumsy, lame attempts at humor and her forced folksy references?

Crush Iran: The Strategy We Should Have Pursued All Along

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered his first major foreign policy address saying Monday the United States is prepared to level the strongest sanctions in history on Iran if its government does not reverse course on its nuclear ambitions.
Two weeks ago, President Trump withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) because its fatal flaws failed to guarantee the safety of the American people.
The JCPOA, Pompeo said, “permitted the Iranian regime to use the money from the JCPOA to boost the economic fortunes of a struggling people, but the regime’s leaders refused to do so. Instead, the government spent its newfound treasure fueling proxy wars across the Middle East and lining the pockets of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Houthis.”
“We should remember, too, that during the JCPOA Iran continues to hold Americans hostage: Baquer Namazi, Siamak Namazi, Xiyue Wang and Bob Levinson who has been missing for over 11 years,” continued Pompeo.
Later in his speech at the Heritage Foundation the Secretary of State said, “It is clear that the JCPOA has not ended Iran’s nuclear ambitions, nor did it deter its quest for a regional hegemony. Iran’s leaders saw the deal as the starting gun for the march across the Middle East.”
Then came the diplomatic body slam of demands on Iran:
First, Iran must declare to the IAEA a full account of the prior military dimensions of its nuclear program, and permanently and verifiably abandon such work in perpetuity.
Second, Iran must stop enrichment and never pursue plutonium reprocessing. This includes closing its heavy water reactor.
Third, Iran must also provide the IAEA with unqualified access to all sites throughout the entire country.
Iran must end its proliferation of ballistic missiles and halt further launching or development of nuclear-capable missile systems.
Iran must release all U.S. citizens, as well as citizens of our partners and allies, each of them detained on spurious charges.
Iran must end support to Middle East terrorist groups, including Lebanese Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Iran must respect the sovereignty of the Iraqi Government and permit the disarming, demobilization, and reintegration of Shia militias.
Iran must also end its military support for the Houthi militia and work towards a peaceful political settlement in Yemen.
Iran must withdraw all forces under Iranian command throughout the entirety of Syria.
Iran, too, must end support for the Taliban and other terrorists in Afghanistan and the region, and cease harboring senior al-Qaida leaders.
Iran must end the IRG Quds Force’s support for terrorists and militant partners around the world.
Iran must end its threatening behavior against its neighbors many of whom are U.S. allies. This certainly includes its threats to destroy Israel, and its firing of missiles into Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. It also includes threats to international shipping and destructive cyberattacks.
The list is long. Neither President Trump nor Secretary of State Pompeo created it, the mullahs did.
Pompeo made it clear this is America’s strategy. It’s the strategy we always should have pursued.

Codename: Crossfire Hurricane

Stefan Halper, Director of American Studies at Cambridge University and a partner at Cambridge Security Initiative along with former MI-6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove is the informant spook who provided information to the CIA and FBI for the Russia investigation before and after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment on May 17, 2017.
It has now been confirmed the Trump campaign was subjected to spying tactics via FISA surveillance, national security letters and covert intelligence operatives who work with the CIA and allied intelligence agencies.
CNN, NBC, The Washington Post and New York Times are more nervous than a virgin at a prison rodeo awaiting the release of the much-anticipated Department of Justice Inspector General’s report on the FBI and DOJ’s investigation and handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
The Clinton report is expected to be followed by a third report on the IG’s investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application on Carter Page, a former volunteer for the Trump campaign. The IG announced this investigation in March.
The good Roger Simon bluntly wrote, “What is being exposed now is an attempt by our highest law enforcement agency working in concert with our intelligence agencies and, evidently, the blessing of the former administration itself to block the candidate of the opposing party, even to defraud and spy on him, that is to, as others have said, "set him up." And then, if they were unsuccessful, make it impossible for him to govern. In addition, in all probability, the same players conspired to make certain Hillary Clinton was not indicted for a crime for which virtually any other American would have done jail time.”
If all that made your blood boil, watch former U.S. Attorney General Joe di Genova predict what’s coming for Brennan and his friends in the press.

Where Oh Where Has My Context Been Taken?

Chuck "The Schmuck" Schumer never fails to entertain the electorate with his gleefully obtuse mischaracterizations of conservative opinions.  In his latest thigh slapper Schumer  destroys the entire contextual universe in order to accuse President Trump of insulting the great-great grandparents of millions of Americans. President Trump was actually talking about the savages who belong to the Salvadoran criminal organization known as MS-13.

Schumer naturally took the President's words and ran them through the prevaricator vortex.
NBC News icon Andrea Mitchell led the media-Democrat hit job on President Donald Trump over remarks he made about deporting illegal immigrant gang members, calling them “animals” when he was asked about MS-13 at an illegal immigration roundtable at the White House Wednesday. Mitchell and others falsely said Trump called all immigrants ‘animals’, with several equating Trump to Hitler. Well, despite EVEN the left-leaning AP deleting their “animals” tweet, Schumer is doubling down. Of course. 
This time, hilariously comparing all of our “great-great-grandparents” to MS-13 gang members. Twitter is not having it.

Schumer quote: "When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either.
I have several layers of immigrant great-great-grandparents; all of whom came to the US shortly after the Civil War.  My maternal great-grandmother's father was a minor French noble. My maternal great-grandfather's father was a crippled Irish shepard boy. My paternal great-great grandparents were both from Hungary.

I did a lot of research on and although two people on my father's side did time in NYS prisons, *blush* absolutely no one raped, beheaded or dismembered a single soul. No one sold heroin or cocaine. Booze - well yeah - Prohibition and all that - but no drugs!

President Trump was not referring to my great-great-grandparents and only an uniformed idiot would think so.

More here.

Every Voter In A Red State With A Democrat Senator Should Ask: Are MS-13 Members “Animals” And Vote Accordingly

The speedy dissemination of lies and the much slower propagation of corrective truths have a very long history. Literary figure Jonathan Swift wrote on this topic in “The Examiner” in 1710:
Besides, as the vilest Writer has his Readers, so the greatest Liar has his Believers; and it often happens, that if a Lie be believ’d only for an Hour, it has done its Work, and there is no farther occasion for it. Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it; so that when Men come to be undeceiv’d, it is too late; the Jest is over, and the Tale has had its Effect.
It all started yesterday during a meeting with President Trump and law enforcement officers and mayors from California sanctuary cities.  In asking about the savage MS-13 gangs, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said, “There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them.”
As you clearly heard there, the President referred to dangerous MS-13 gang members as “animals” but anti-Trump media organizations conveniently took his comments out of context to make it appear that he was talking about illegal immigrants.
Long after it was clear that Trump was talking about MS-13, news organizations continued to inaccurately use the quote to rile up the left.
Trump haters at the New York Daily News published on its front page: “Trump hurls hate at immigrants: ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’”
CNBC’s John Harwood, who has close ties to longtime Clinton crony John Podesta, took things a step further and admitted that he sympathizes with the dangerous gang members.
“However repugnant their actions, MS-13 gang members are human beings IMHO,” Harwood tweeted.
NBC Universal did not respond when asked for comment on Harwood’s tweet.
During today’s White House Press Briefing, Sarah Sanders was locked and loaded when the subject was predictably raised:
Then along comes Nancy Palsi who defended MS-13 gang members:
The parody account @sean_spicier tweeted something hysterically funny and I just had to create a graphic to illustrate how ridiculous the Left’s defense of these monsters is.
Every voter in a red state with a senator who is a Democrat should ask them if MS-13 members are “animals” and cast their vote accordingly.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: “I’m Ready For My Close-Up Mr. De Mille”

Last night CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.  Just a few days earlier, Kimmel the host of the show, revealed to Deadline he’d be pulling back on the anti-Trump rhetoric that’s become a signature of his late-night monologues.
"I don't know. I don't know how much focus there will be…I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump."
Kimmel introduced Acosta as “the persistent thorn in the flabby underbelly of the Trump Administration from CNN, please welcome Chief White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta.”
Kimmel told Acosta, “I love watching you bust their balls. I love it.  I can’t get enough of it.”
CNN has strayed into naked partisanship in pursuit of ratings and allowed Acosta to turn the White House Briefing Room into a personal editorial page because it makes for what the network believes is good television.
Acosta has become the epitome of the #Resistance while repeating the talking points of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. 
Kimmel concluded the interview by asking the guy with the punchable face, “Will there ever be a scenario where you get to interview the President one-on-one?” Acosta replied, “I don’t think that’s ever gonna happen.  I don’t want to blow up the world.”  “Why,” asked Kimmel, “Do you think he’s scared to sit down with you one-on-one?”
Acosta babbled on about Sam Donaldson, the ABC News reporter notorious for hounding Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal and Kimmel asked, “Do you dare the President to sit down and do an interview with you?” to which Crybaby Acosta boldly proclaimed, “I dare him to sit down for an interview with me.”
Kimmel ended the interview saying, “I’m enjoying you tormenting them. I will say that.  It’s a small consolation. It really is.”
Ari Fleischer, former White House Press Secretary for George W. Bush, said Acosta’s combative tactics remind him of Helen Thomas.  Thomas was pro-Hezbollah and once asked Fleischer, “Does the President think the Palestinians have a right to resist 35 years of brutal military occupation and suppression?”  Fleischer said, “I loved it.  I’d let her talk all day because you could practically hear the American public disagreeing with her from the Briefing Room.”
So, yeah Jim, keep talking about Stormy Daniels, Russia, DACA and the human side of MS-13 gangs.  America will enjoy watching the “blue wave” dissipate into a muddy puddle come November.

Kim Is Skeer’d

Yesterday when news broke through the North Korean state-run Yonhap News Agency casting doubt on next month's summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump over joint Air Force Max Thunder drills taking place in South Korea, the news agency declared, "This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across South Korea, is a flagrant challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and an intentional military provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula."
"The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities.”
Today, the hermit nation decided pissing and moaning about drills, which have taken place for decades, wasn’t a suitable enough excuse and took aim at National Security Advisor John Bolton for remarks he made about “the Libya model” in April on CBS’s Face the Nation.
“I think we're looking at the Libya model of 2003, 2004. We're also looking at what North Korea itself has committed to previously and most importantly I think going back over a quarter of a century to the 1992 joint North-South denuclearization agreement where North Korea committed to give up nuclear weapons and committed to give up uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing. Now we've got other issues to discuss as well; their ballistic missile programs, their biological and chemical weapons programs, their keeping of American hostages, the abduction of innocent Japanese and South Korean citizens over the years. So, there's a lot to talk about.”
"In the case of Libya, for example, and it's a different situation in some respects...One thing that Libya did that led us to overcome our skepticism was that they allowed American and British observers into all their nuclear-related sites." (It should be noted Gaddafi allowed certification that his nuclear and chemical weapons program had halted after the U.S. invaded Iraq and deposed the brutal dictator Saddam Hussein.)
The bluster coming from Pyongyang apparently is emanating Kim Kye-gwan, a senior figure in the North Korean hierarchy who has negotiated with the U.S. before. In 2003, North Korea refused to participate in multilateral talks if Bolton was present after he labelled then leader Kim Jong-il a “tyrannical dictator”, a memory which the regime invoked on Wednesday.
"We do not hide our feelings of repugnance towards him," said Kye-gwan, warning the Trump Administration to remember the lessons of the past. 
If the “Libya model” comparison carries dark connotations for the  rogue nation, perhaps someone needs to forcefully remind them Muammar Gaddafi was killed on October 20, 2011.  Bolton left government service on December 31, 2006.
Who was POTUS? Barack Obama.  Who was Secretary of State? Hillary Clinton.  Who was Secretary of Defense? Leon Panetta.
On August 22, 2011 the cumulative efforts of the international coalition bore fruit when exuberant rebels stormed the Qaddafi compound in Tripoli. The dictator was still at large, but his reign was over.
Hillary Clinton’s old friend and political adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, who regularly emailed her political advice and vaguely sourced intelligence reports on Libya, urged her to capitalize on the dictator’s fall.
“Brava!” Blumenthal exclaimed. As always, he was thinking about Hillary’s presidential ambitions. “You must go on camera. You must establish yourself in the historical record at this moment.” She should be sure to use the phrase “successful strategy,” he wrote. “You are vindicated.”
The first news reports of Qaddafi’s capture and killing in October 2011 reached the Secretary of State in Kabul, Afghanistan where she had just sat down for a televised interview with CBS News. “Wow!” she said, looking at Huma Abedin’s BlackBerry™ before cautiously noting that the report had not yet been confirmed. But Hillary Clinton seemed impatient for a conclusion to the multinational military intervention she had done so much to organize, and in a rare unguarded moment, she dropped her aloofness.
The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer said the biggest mistake of his presidency was the lack of planning for the aftermath of Muammar Gaddafi’s ouster in Libya that left the country spiraling into chaos and coming under threat from violent Islamic extremists. He conceded the intervention “didn’t work”.
A year later four Americans were brutally slaughtered in Benghazi.

Former Clinton Circus Midget Takes Denial To A Preposterous Level

On May 4, former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reichhhhhhhhhh (BTW that's not a typo) cross-posted a piece from his blog to Salon.  He began by asking, “Why did working class voters choose a selfish, thin-skinned, petulant, lying, narcissistic, boastful, megalomaniac for president?”
Reich is searching for ways to prevent having “future Trumps as far as the eye can see.” He admits, “Hillary Clinton offered a plethora of small-bore policy proposals — all sensible but none big enough to make a difference. If Democrats really want to stop Trump, they will need to address the causes of Trump’s rise.”
Nine days later, the Clinton flunky who’s never been right about anything, tweeted the following account of a phone conversation he had with a “friend” he claims is a former Republican member of Congress.
If you’re a “deplorable” like me, you’ll just point and laugh at the little squirt who Rush Limbaugh mocked for his absurd policies, diminutive 4’11” stature and exaggerated sense of self-importance.
