Political prosecution, not legal prosecution

Political prosecution, not legal prosecution
Several people now have pled or been convicted of crimes because they associated with Trump. Michael Cohen even pled guilty to a bundle of crimes that include non-crimes. If Flynn, Cohen, and Manafort had not associated with Donald Trump, no charges would ever have been brought against them.

We are not seeing a criminal conspiracy investigation going on, we are seeing the Impeach-Trump dossier being assembled. All criminal charges being leveled are actually political charges. In other words, the charges originate from a political strategy not from a specific alleged criminal act sparking an investigation.

BernieCare thirty-two trillion increase called a decrease

BernieCare thirty-two trillion increase called a decreaseA recent Mercatus working paper from George Mason University that detailed the tremendous cost of Bernie Sanders’ health care plan spread like wildfire the last few days with false headlines from Leftist media outlets saying it showed government health care spending would decrease by 2 trillion dollars.

But‪ the Mercatus white paper itself says right off, in the first paragraph, that the $32.6 trillion is NOT the TOTAL cost, to be compared with the current cost, but is a lowball estimate of the INCREASE IN COSTS over current spending:

Trump avoids media trap in press conference with Putin

Trump avoids media trap in press conference with Putin
President Trump hit the mark yesterday in his press conference with Vladimir Putin. Instead of following the direction the press wanted to go, accusing Putin of turning the 2016 election in Trump’s favor.

The key thing missed by Leftist media and much of that on the Right is that by making the press conference about Russian “meddling,” it would have meant Mr. Trump was accepting the “collusion” myth and his campaign’s complicity in this imagined conspiracy.

Russians indicted but still no collusion

Russians indicted but still no collusion
As preparations are being made for President Trump’s meeting next with Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced Friday that Special Prosecutor Mueller had charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with crimes related to the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee. That’s right, the investigation meant to prove President Trump worked hand-in-hand with Vladimir Putin to fix the 2016 election, again presents results that show no collusion.

Rosenstein even said so in his statement, that “there is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime.”

Despite media, Trump approval on the rise

Despite media, Trump approval on the rise
During the 2016 Presidential campaign I reported, once in September and again a few days before Election Day, that a composite of polling indicating rising support for Donald Trump was proof that the widely held belief and/or propagandizing going on that Trump could not win needed to be reconsidered. In other words, Trump could win.

In a similar way, President Trump has been increasing in popularity as the single party Deep State media continues to portray him as being on the verge of defeat, that is, impeachment.

Media refuses to get Trump sarcasm

Media refuses to get Trump sarcasm
On Friday morning, President Trump tweeted the following: “Wow, the highest rated (by far) morning show, @foxandfriends, is on the Front Lawn of the White House. Maybe I’ll have to take an unannounced trip down to see them?” He then proceeded to do just that.

Leftist disinformation causes Samantha Bee meltdown

Leftist disinformation causes Samantha Bee meltdown
Amazing how the Leftist talking heads are determined to outdo their propagandized portrayal of Donald Trump. Example 1, Samantha Bee: “The fracas started when Bee lambasted President Donald Trump about reports of more than 1,500 missing migrant children allegedly lost by Customs and Border Protection. The host went on to accuse Ivanka Trump, who serves as an adviser to the president and has positioned herself as a leading voice of feminism in the administration, of inaction.”

Bee continued her tirade, which had its basis in Leftist disinformation about current immigration policies, with profanity and vulgarity in her description of Ivanka Trump.

By attacking Ivanka Trump, Samantha Bee, a comedian on TBS, whose bigotry against non-Leftists poses as humor, showed us that purposely using vulgar speech on the job to express her heartfelt bigotry toward those with whom she politically disagrees and hates is OK by her employer as long as she apologizes afterward, since it’s not a Leftist she is demeaning.

The crime of unspecified illegal acts

The crime of unspecified illegal acts
If the GW Bush administration had the CIA director and people in the FBI and Department of Justice spying on and investigating the Obama campaign throughout 2008 for unspecified illegal acts that were still unspecified two years later (no proof of anything illegal, just “connect the dots”), I’m certain the Democrats would not have been saying the Obama administration exceeded its authority by investigating alleged malfeasance and abuse of power by individuals in the Bush administration.

Purpose of Mueller investigatIon is impeachment

Purpose of Mueller investigatIon is impeachment
While not knowing, at the time, the extent to which President Trump’s FBI Director was conspiring against him, James Comey was fired by the President on the recommendation of the Attorney General’s office. The firing of Comey was not obstruction of justice but part of an effort to stop what we now know to be an unconstitutional effort to conspire to overthrow the President of the United States.

The Special Counsel investigation, as it is operating now, is simply an attempt to concoct a charge against President Trump which will be used for bringing impeachment charges against the President by what Democrats assume to be a soon Democrat-majority Congress.

The Leftist shadow state

The Leftist shadow state
The American Left, their subordinate Democrat Party, and their media outlets, the mainstream media, have been wholly functioning in the tradition of Pravda and Communist Party centralized decision-making for several years now.

And the defeat of the Democrats in holding onto the White House by the election of Donald Trump to the White House has now revealed the extent to which the Democrats have gone to try and abolish a multi-party system and replace it with a government wholly run by one Party.

We caught ‘em

We caught ‘em

President Trump tweeted: “Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper! Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) took the bait and responded to President Trump’s tweet with an “ignore what is behind the curtain” response. As Dorothy’s dog Toto did to the Great Oz, the curtain is being lifted, revealing a wholly made-up conspiracy that says Russia elected Donald Trump to the White House.

Media propagandists attack General Kelly

Media propagandists attack General Kelly
Here’s how false propaganda generates hate. White House chief of staff General Kelly says Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL), during the dedication of an FBI facility in Florida, began bragging about her role in legislation in regard to the dedication.

Kelly mistakenly says she was bragging about getting the FUNDING for the facility RATHER THAN what the legislation actually was, the NAMING of the facility.

The Brave New World of Demokratika

Jul 17, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

Democratika - the nation formerly called the United States after the Left has deposed all political forces from power who believe that the America that came into being 241 years ago represents a good force in the world and has a rich heritage that needs to be preserved and built upon.

The political movement I call Demokratika had a plan for the 2016 Presidential campaign that I will call Plan A:

  1. Defeat a Republican that had no chance of winning.
  2. Continue Obama’s Fundamental Transformation.
  3. Destroy any remaining evidence of criminal wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.
  4. Continue to pack the government with people who hate our American heritage and are willing to abandon the Constitutional process in order to establish Demokratika.

A crime of willingness to commit collusion?

Jul 13, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

It’s not even, as CNN‘s Jake Tapper described it, that Donald Trump, Jr. is guilty of “evidence of willingness to commit collusion.”

Tapper looked serious when he said that, but what does that even mean? As Greg Jarrett on Fox News says, there is no collusion statute except in antitrust.

That’s what its come down to now with the Democrats. Obstruction of justice didn’t work, so they try this. Even if collusion were a term defining criminal behavior (which it’s not), who has ever been prosecuted for evidence of willingness to rob a bank if the bank never got robbed, or evidence of willingness to murder someone who never gets murdered?

Evidence of efforts to sabotage Trump

Jul 11, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

We can be almost totally assured, after months of almost daily leaks to the press by anonymous executive branch sources, that Democrats would be leaking evidence of Trump malfeasance from the Special Counsel investigation by now if they had something. Yet we have heard nothing.

Yes, that Special Counsel. The one set up as a result of James Comey illegally leaking his infamous memos (we know there are at least 4 at this point) and packed with attorneys that represented and donated to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats.

And if the Washington Post had given the Democrats and Obama when he was President the same scrutiny used to report on Watergate, we would all be aware that something much bigger than a “third-rate burglary” had gone on in the process of trying to assure the victory of their party’s candidate in the November 8 presidential election.

The Left is fulfilling their prophecies of us

Jun 19, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

Democrat Leftists are great at making predictions of the future that do not come to pass - at least by those they accuse. Yet, alarmingly so, it appears that they are more and more becoming what they are “prophesying” that their political opponents would become.

I can remember the Left’s “prophecies” of Republican Presidents from Nixon on (every Republican President since I was 14) - that their presidency was taking us into a Hitler-like dictatorship and freedom was on the verge of becoming extinct.

That prediction, and so many others by the Left, have, of course, proved to be utterly false. Yet time and again their political opponents treat these statements as if they were reasonable political perspectives.

No collusion or obstruction of justice

Jun 10, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

Testifying on Thursday, June 8 before the Senate Intelligence Committee, former FBI Director James Comey showed us why we should be glad he was fired as FBI director.

I watched as Senate Democrats on the committee tried to get former FBI director James Comey to give them some sound bites to “prove” that President Trump obstructed justice by making Comey stop an investigation of him.

How absurd! They knew the day before, after reading the text of Comey’s next-day statement read before the Senate committee, that there was no investigation of Donald Trump going on. There can be no obstruction if there was no investigation!

Driven batty over Paris treaty rejection

Jun 3, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

President Trump goes after the Left’s sacred cow of global warming by rejecting the Paris climate treaty and you would think we were suddenly under a DEFCON 1 alert of imminent nuclear war. Some even called it treason to reject the Paris Accords treaty.

And as happens now after any statement or action by the Trump administration, the liberal/left media leads the way with the talking points for all the leadership of the Democrat Party to cry out as one about how terrible they think President Trump is.

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” President Trump explained.

They hate Trump so that makes him guilty

May 14, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

What “collusion?” Who are the alleged individuals Donald Trump is colluding with and the alleged crimes he is committing? Answer: THERE AREN’T ANY!

It’s like having to prove you’re not guilty of speeding only if you can absolutely show you’ve never driven over the speed limit.

But it has to be first alleged that you did something, then that specific crime is prosecuted.

More Putin agent hype as Trump does the opposite

Apr 16, 2017 — Rolf Yungclas

In the last week so-called “Russian puppet ruler” Donald Trump’s administration has:

  • attacked the airbase of a Russian ally with 59 cruise missiles;
  • worked to strengthen Russia’s 68 year-old adversary NATO by meeting with the NATO Secretary General and working to get the nation of Montenegro into NATO;
  • met with the President of China, one of Russia’s major competitors on the world stage;
  • demolished Russia in several UN Security Council session debates US Ambassador Haley had with her Russian counterpart;
  • chided Russia for their bad acts when the US Secretary of State said our relations with Russia were at a low point on his visit Moscow to see Putin and the Russian Premier.
