Some Weekend News On The Investigation
Spygate or informant? The issue continued all weekend. Did the Obama administration and FBI spy on the Trump campaign, or did they did investigate to determine Russian involvement? Trump, Guilani and Republican congressional leaders claimed “spying”. The Democrats (supported by the MSM) said “no way”.
We think the work was for investigation purposes and not to spy. There were legitimate questions to look at with people like Carter Page. That said there was no evidence of collusion and the question for us is more this. Did they use the work of the informant to get the FISA charge and lead to the special counsel?
We think they did and that would be an issue.
The meeting with the congressional leaders to share information the the DOJ refuses to turn over was a joke. You had the MSM and Democrats yelling that the President’s attorney and John Kelly had no right to be there. They gave the impression that the two were at the meeting. They were not. They said a few words at the outset and left before the DOJ presentation.
Second, no documents were shared. It was a presentation. Did you know that?
There’s more to come in this.
Other News You Have Missed (and really wasn’t covered)
Remember Rachel Dolezal the woman who passed as black and led an NACCP chapter? She was in the news, and is now facing a lengthy prison term on welfare fraud charges.
It seems she received assistance by reporting that her income was usually less than $500 per month in child support payments, a statement contradicted by bank records obtained by state officials.
“The bank records, court documents say, showed Diallo had deposited about $83,924 into her bank account in several monthly installments between August 2015 and September 2017, without reporting the income to the Department of Social and Health Services.
While on charges and payments, you heard that Stormy Daniels was honored and received the key to the city (West Hollywood, Ca,). Did you hear this about the Mayor who honored her?
Mayor John Duran “who honored” her for leading “the resistance” to the President, faced sexual harassment claims of his own! The charges led to the city paying out $500,000 on his behalf in 2016.
As we’ve said before, you can’t make this up.
Here’s an example of Washington at its best.The Washington Post (no friend of the President) said this yesterday.
A Saudi Arabia signal to ease limits on oil production led to oil prices falling after a three-week rally, and OPEC cited an angry tweet by President Donald Trump as a trigger. Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Energy Khalid al-Falih said “I reiterated Saudi’s commitment, in collaboration with other producers, to guarantee availability of sufficient oil supply to compensate for potential loss & to meet rising demand.”
At the same time:
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer declared that Mr. Trump was “missing in action” when it came to fixing rising gasoline prices. “President Trump and his administration are clearly more committed to helping pad the pockets of corporate executives and wealthy shareholders than helping middle-class families,” said the New York Democrat. “It is time for this president to stand up to OPEC on behalf of the forgotten man and woman he promised to remember and do what is necessary to lower gas prices.”

Here’s a story from the Washington Times:
President Trump signed a trio of executive orders that reform civil service rules by expediting termination for cause, revamping union contracts and limiting taxpayer-funded union work at agencies.
“Today the president is fulfilling his promise to promote more efficient government by reforming civil service rules,” said Andrew P. Bremberg, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council.“These executive orders will make it easier for agencies to remove poor-performing employees and make sure taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used,” Mr. Bremberg said. The move will promote efficiency, save taxpayer dollars and create better work environments for “thousands of employees who come to work each day and do a great job,” said another official.
Here’s the other side. Democrats backed this union statement.
“This is more than union busting – it’s democracy busting,” said AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. “These executive orders are a direct assault on the legal rights and protections that Congress has specifically guaranteed to the 2 million public-sector employees across the country who work for the federal government.”
Remember the uproar over the President calling MS13 members “animals”. The MSM and liberals went crazy and coverage was extensive. Well here’s a poll on the public reaction:
Taken in the wake of a controversy that swirled around President Donald Trump for using the term at an immigration meeting, the Harvard Caps/Harris Survey found 56 percent of adults think the word was acceptable, while 44 percent said it was unfair.
Fifty-two percent added that comments which “dehumanize” MS-13 members are acceptable.
The media forgot to cover this.
Another story they didn’t have time to cover was the President’s pardon of former Heavyweight Champion Jack Johnson. Johnson was boxing’s first black heavyweight champion, and in 1913, he was convicted for accompanying his girlfriend across state lines. Johnson’s relatives and others said it was a racist conviction that forced him to serve 10 months in prison.
I guess the narrative didn’t fit what they want to cover and convey.
