His Retirement Effective April 1st…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/6/2018 6:40:00 PM

It was the Mississippi primary race between 40-year-term Senator Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel in 2014 that revealed just how far the GOPe would go to keep a grip on their power. The establishment and Mitch McConnell were willing to do anything to protect Thad Cochran despite his infirmity and near certain senility. Senator Cochran was barely awake for the past few years. Today his staff announce his retirement effective April 1st: (Snip) Chris McDaniel (pictured above) was already planning a primary challenge to Mississippi GOP Senator Roger Wicker. It will be interesting to see what comes next. Chris McDaniel is not

Dittos to all the above comments. That doddering old man should never have been elected in the first place. McConnell and his dirty friends like Haley Barbour, used ugly tactics against Chris McDaniel to get that old RINO elected. Good riddance to him. He was only a warm (barely) body guaranteed to vote with the RINOs.

That primary election was the moment I realized that the republican elites were every bit as sleazy as the democrats. I changed my affiliation to independent that week.

Yes, and McCain too. Maybe these two can get a double room at the nursing home. Duct tape them to their walkers and keep the door bolted, please.

I suspect #3 just might be on to something here. But April Fool´s day is appropriate for his retirement, since his reelection was such a bad joke.

As I wrote a few days ago, the American media is broken. That description already sounds outdated as we now witness the media’s rebranding of the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign as a vital national security effort: “Of course the Trump campaign was being spied on! It was for their own good!” A brave group of journalists—aided by key amplifiers in social media, cable news, and talk radio—continues to push back on the media’s sycophantic service to the Democratic Party in which so many reporters, news personalities and political pundits are invested. Now, reporters who tried to convince us

This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper. --T.S. Eliot One strange trait of the die hard NeverTrump Republicans and progressives is their charge that Donald Trump poses an existential threat to democracy. Trump, as is his wont, says a lot of outrageous and weird things. But it is hard in his 16 months of rule to find any proof that Trump has subverted the rule of law. Most of the furor is over what we are told what Trump might do, or what Trump has said, or which unsavory character in Europe likes Trump. These could

After getting their hands caught in the proverbial “we were illegally spying on the Trump campaign” cookie jar the Deep State was quick to organize a coordinated media response that is now trying to convince Americans it wasn’t spying but merely the Deep State trying to “protect” Mr. Trump and his campaign from Russian influence. One of those media reports was authored by Asha Rangappa. Guess what? She’s Deep State. Yup. Besides Alternative Media there is no real and honest reporting in the United States. It’s all propaganda.

As I read the New York Times tribute to the collapse of Time magazine ("An oral history of how the pre-eminent media organization of the 20th century ended up on the scrap heap") I thought about the Bamboo Lounge in the movie "Goodfellas," a ruthless depiction of the ruthlessness of the mafioso. For all their talk about family and loyalty, the gangsters turn on one another in the blink of an eye.

78 Per Cent of 9,000 Afghan ‘Children’

A proposal to allow some 9,000 young Afghan migrants to stay in Sweden has been controversial among voters, as a new report shows that at least 78 per cent are really adults. Last month, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and his government announced a plan to allow some 9,000 “underage” Afghan migrants to stay in the country after a wave of protest against deportations to Afghanistan. The issue has remained a highly controversial topic ahead of this year’s national election, but now it has been revealed that the vast majority of the migrants were not underage Expressen reports.

President Donald J. Trump announced his decision to demand an official investigation of former President Barack Obama’s administration on Sunday for infiltrating or surveilling his presidential campaign for political reasons. “I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

PUNA, BIG ISLAND - Two major developments in the ongoing Kilauea eruption came late Saturday night. Civil Defense (CD) officials confirmed around 11 p.m. that lava from fissure 20 has reached the ocean. As the flow pours into the water and creates new land, officials warn of the threat for laze. In addition, a critical access point to lower Puna communities was cut off when lava reached Highway 137 around 10:30 p.m.(Snip)All day Saturday, powerful rivers of lava threatened homes and roads in the lower Puna area where volcanic activity is steadily increasing.

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

"No, I’m not over it, I still think about the 2016 election, I still regret the mistakes I made,” Clinton said during an address as part of Yale University’s Class Day. “Today, as a person, I’m Okay.

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap
