Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Refuses
to be Interviewed By Joint
House Committee…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/11/2018 9:37:49 AM

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was scheduled to testify tomorrow to a closed-door joint House congressional committee (Judiciary/Oversight) chaired by Bob Goodlatte. (Snip)Exposing the FBI/DOJ dirty deeds is a major priority for a contingent within congress and a multitude of Trump supporters – but for the office of the President, in the immediate future, not-so-much. When you have this much leverage on someone, you don’t want them to quit. You want to use their damaged and tenuous position to your advantage. President Trump is in no hurry to fire Rosenstein (not yet), because the DAG is so weak

Comments:
Leverage.

Naught to worry.
There´s some genius Trump plan at play here.
He didn´t fire Rosenstien (sp) when they recently flew together on Air-force 1 but they talked. Be patient. Trump is in control.

Congress can pass a law saying if you refuse to talk or take the 5th - you immediately lose your Secret Clearances.

Also, if you lie to Congress you lose your Secret Clearances.

Rosenstein was NOT duped. Special Counsel was appointed under fraudulent pretenses. That is the key that must come out undeniably before the polls.

Shame on Trump. Trump claims he has a very good relationship with Mr Peepers, he said so on Fox And Friends this morning. Now how could that be when this Rosenstein was the one who picked Mueller to go after Trump and allotted all this money to be spent on this investigation. Something don´t smell right

How many democrats will be impeached from the House and Senate after the elections? Even if the democrats manage to win the House, using voter fraud and other means, I think enough of them will be removed- either impeached or indicted- that their efforts will be nullified. Some RINOs are probably not sleeping too well either!

Rosenstein is totally in this whole Mueller mess right up to his epaulets. Mueller and Comey both are considered by Rosey´s wife Lisa to be her mentors.

Having said that, this notion he can refuse to talk to a committee of congress needs to be quashed. If you have nothing to hide Rosey, why not talk to them? Afraid the jig´s up??

If RR works for and answers to PDJT---and not the other way around---Trump should order him to undergo this interview. If RR refuses, fire him for insubordination. And stop his pension. Then investigate him for conspiracy to undermine our president.

Debunking a Few Myths
About Mitch McConnell
American Greatness, by Rachel Bovard    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 11/18/2018 9:17:38     Post Reply
The Weekly Standard published a gusher last week on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Fred Barnes, the magazine’s executive editor, fell all over himself praising McConnell’s “pragmatism and political skill . . . [which] allows little to get in the way of winning.”(Snip) In 2013, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) unleashed the so-called “nuclear option” on the Senate, eliminating the 60-vote threshold for confirmations of judicial and executive branch nominees. With the 60-vote hurdle out of the way, McConnell’s “success” in confirming judges has been less about his leadership skills, and more about simple scheduling, and prioritizing

Protesters waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted ´Out! Out!´ on Sunday in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc, just one mile from the US border. They accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana and complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an ´invasion´. And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group as they wait possibly months to apply for US asylum.

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Before killing himself with a drug intended for rapid and painless animal euthanasia, Richard A. Morrisett had endured a nightmare at the University of Texas in Austin. The 57-year-old tenured professor of pharmacology and toxicology was once a rising star in the College of Pharmacy – a man regarded as a first-rate research scientist and teacher during his 21 years at the state´s flagship university. Morrisett´s research offered new insights into alcohol-related brain disorders and alcoholism – an arcane area of research among neuroscientists. Some colleagues called him “brilliant.” Morrisett´s career, however, was destroyed by a single newspaper article. Published
