Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran Announces
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.

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.

High school student turned anti-gun activist David Hogg deleted tweets about Friday’s second National School Walkout stating that the event — taking place on the anniversary of the 1999 attack at Columbine High School in Colorado that resulted in the deaths of 12 people — would include more than just students pressing for gun control. “It’s been just over 2 months,” David Hogg, a student at the Parkland, Florida, high school where 17 people died after a former student shot them, said in a now-deleted tweet. “We have walked out of school and now, on 4/20, we walk out everywhere.

During a Tuesday interview with “Good Morning America,” former FBI Director praised Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, saying he learned a lot about leadership from the future Hall of Fame. “I admire LeBron James, and he’s probably about to find out I used to talk about him all over the FBI and say he illustrates what the endless pursuit of excellence looks like,” Comey told host George Stephanopoulos. He continued, “Every offseason, I’ve read, he tries to find a part of his game to make better — which is crazy, because he’s already better than everybody else.

A group of young people on Monday sued Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) to force him to take action on climate change. The group of eight young Florida residents — represented by Oregon-based Our Children´s Trust — sued Scott to demand that the state begin working on a court-ordered, science-based "Climate Recovery Plan," the Miami Herald reported. The group, which is reportedly made up of individuals ranging from 10 to 20 years old, is alleging Scott is not taking steps to combat climate change. The suit says Scott and his administration have not passed any legislation meant to measure or

Ingraham’s Viewership Increases 20

Fox News host Laura Ingraham´s viewership has gone up by 20 percent since gun control activist David Hogg initiated a boycott of her advertisers late last month. Hogg went after "Ingraham Angle" advertisers on March 29, and that week Ingraham´s ratings had averaged about 2.23 million, but last week she returned from vacation and her ratings climbed to around 2.7 million, NewsBusters reported. Hogg, a 17-year-old student who survived February´s mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., targeted Ingraham´s advertisers last month after she tweeted an article about him being turned down from four different campuses in the University of California school system.

What a delicious hors d’oeuvre Michael Horowitz gave the world on Friday! The inspector general for Department of Justice finally issued his eagerly awaited (eagerly awaited by some of us, anyway) report on Andrew McCabe, the disgraced former deputy director of the FBI. Note that this is only an appetizer. In the coming weeks, Horowitz will follow up with entrees on the FBI’s partisan activities in the 2016 presidential election and, later, another report on (if I may employ the term) collusion with the State Department. (Snip) Speaking for myself, I hope the desert course includes a close look at

Mueller Targets Sean Hannity
Following Cohen Raid

While the court proceedings took place in New York, make no mistake those proceedings were being guided by the hand of D.C. Special Counsel and former FBI Director, Robert Mueller. The U.S. District Court raid on Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen’s offices was a direct offshoot of the Mueller investigation. Today that Mueller-influenced (and many feel highly illegal) raid forced Mr. Cohen to start disclosing names on his client list. First and foremost was Fox News personality and avid Trump supporter, Sean Hannity.

The Uranium One scandal is rearing its ugly and multi-sided head again. During that highly controversial agreement that sold 20% of U.S. uranium stock to Putin-controlled interests in Russia then-U.S. attorney Rod Rosenstein was charged with investigating the deal as allegations of bribes, extortion, and money laundering involving the Clintons and Obama-related figures, quickly mounted. And guess who was the FBI Director at the time? None other than Robert Mueller, the man now charged with investigating Donald Trump.And now longtime Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas is raising the possibility of impeachment charges against Rosenstein: @replouiegohmert: “I have no problem with impeaching Rosenstein.

James Comey’s first interview since President Trump fired him as director of the FBI has enraged his former agents, who deluged The Daily Beast with their disdain as they watched him tell his side of the story to George Stephanopoulos on Sunday night. Seven current or former FBI agents and officials spoke throughout and immediately after the broadcast. There was a lot of anger, frustration, and even more emojis—featuring the thumbs-down, frowny face, middle finger, and a whole lot of green vomit faces. (Snip)When a promo aired

Don’t Botch the Steele Dossier
Story Again, GOP

A stunning admission by former FBI Director James Comey is an infuriating reminder how badly the Republicans screwed up the Steele dossier story in the critical early months of 2017—and a warning that they are at risk of doing it again before they potentially lose control of Congress in November. In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Comey admitted he did not tell President Trump about the dossier’s origin during a private meeting on January 6, 2017. Here’s the exchange: Stephanopoulos: Did you tell him [the president] that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents? Comey: No. I didn’t even

Call it a pole-dancing standoff between the Siren Stripper and the Leakin’ Lyin’ Nasty Giraffe, code-named “Slimeball” by the highest levels of the United States government. As Stormy Daniels jiggled her way through West Palm Beach this weekend collecting bills stuffed in her bikini pants, ex-FBI director Jim Comey was similarly shaking his moneymaker on camera, desperately trying to gin up attention and shakedown some loot after being spectacularly fired last year by the president. As many Americans know, losing your job and being out of work for a year can be both financially devastating and emotionally torturous. “Slimeball” has coped the best

n the desperate hope that countless photos and videos of former Vice President Joe Biden’s “handsi-ness” with women and children can be wished away, the far-left Politico published a lengthy piece Monday dismissing the problem. The overall piece is a typical overlong, Politico blah-blah-blah about how Biden is the frontrunner to challenge Trump in 2020 and that his real problem is not his “handsi-ness,” but that he is not far enough to the left. (Snip) Trump would also provide cover for another often-discussed Biden drawback: the overly familiar mannerisms that seem terribly out of place in the #MeToo era. Next to Trump’s

During a hearing on Monday, a judge revealed that Fox News primetime host Sean Hannity is the mysterious third client of lawyer Michael Cohen.

Daniels appeared on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday morning with lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Gerry Connolly, Virginia Democrat, said on CNN that Mr. Hannity is untrustworthy because he did not disclose his ties to Mr. Cohen while commenting on or covering the Trump administration. “I think he is so into this like a pig in the mud he can’t get out of it. And I think he deserves to be fired. His word can never again be trusted,” Mr. Connolly said, calling the revelation at a court hearing earlier Monday “a big stain on Hannity

Clifford performed less than five miles east of the "Winter White Hous,e" Mar-a-Lago, at the Ultra Gentlemen´s Club in West Palm Beach. The club also lies between Trump International Golf Club and Mar-a-Lago. The club announced her performance last month. The porn star is leading a "Make America Horny Again" tour to draw attention to her alleged affair with President Trump.

Late Saturday night, patriotic actor James Woods asked anyone who attended Columbia University and recalled Obama as a student there to please respond by tweeting a picture of him at Columbia. Twitter erupted and the responses were hilarious. Barry Hussein Obama’s records are still sealed so we don’t know what his grades were like nor do we know the content of any papers he wrote. People who attended Columbia University at the same time as Obama do not recall seeing him or having any classes with him.

The city announced on Monday a new partnership with the Denver Housing Authority that would involve boosting Denver’s affordable housing fund to $30 million annually and issuing more than $100 million in bonds to support more affordable housing over the next five years. “We can all agree – more resources are key to addressing this challenge,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said. “The Housing Authority has been a trusted partner

SAN DIEGO - Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Donald Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office. Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump´s election and policies. But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many

A group of kids is suing Florida Gov. Rick Scott, claiming he “endangered” their future and violated their constitutional rights by not doing anything to combat climate change. The youngsters filed their lawsuit on Monday in Leon County Court. “It is the responsibility of the state to uphold the constitution, and these young people have a fundamental right to a stable climate system,” said Guy Burns, lead counsel for the eight plaintiffs, most of whom are teens. The youths are being represented by the Oregon-based nonprofit organization Our Children’s Trust, which is supporting similar suits from children across the country.
