The secret to Buttigieg’s publicity run was no secret, wrote Matthew Yglesias in Vox. Like Molly Bloom in his favorite novel, Ulysses, he can’t stop saying “yes”—to media invitations.(Snip)Was it only weeks ago that the press began swooning for O’Rourke like a drunken conventioneer, writing about him with the same frequency it does for Buttigieg today? Impeachment? Hoyer Says It´s ´Not Worthwhile´; Schiff Is Doubtful; Nadler Sees ´Possibility´ Fri, 19 05 2019 04:05:34 GMT d5780712449fe02145ab1d3955915d20b328f7db Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 19 05 2019 04:05:34 GMT House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D'Md.) told CNN´s Dana Bash on Thursday that the Mueller report does not demand Trump´s impeachment: "Based on what we have seen to date, going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point," Hoyer told Bash off'camera. "Very frankly, there is an election in 18 months and the American people will make a judgment." (Video) Rep. Adam Schiff (D'Calif.), the chair of the House intelligence committee who has been pursuing Trump since he became president, also hedged on impeachment Thursday, telling CNN: Well, you know, that decision (impeachment) is above my pay grade, but Indiana farmers uncover ancient mastodon bones Fri, 19 02 2019 04:02:15 GMT f3e55ae1ea3d50daaf3ec32d8edafce4b236c4d9 New York Post, by Staff Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 19 02 2019 04:02:15 GMT Workers installing a new sewer on an Indiana farm made a mammoth discovery this week — 13,000'year'old mastodon bones. The Schepman family of Seymour first thought cow or chicken remains had been found during the renovations, but when they saw a giant tusk and 4'foot'long thigh bones, they realized the beast was much larger and more ancient. “It’s amazing to think about something this large roaming around this area,” Joe Schepman told the Seymour Tribune. “The weight of them is unbelievable,” he said while holding a bone. “When the tusks were on the animal, they were about 9 feet long Why Crazy Bernie will lose in 2020 Fri, 19 35 2019 03:35:18 GMT a0984dd575396c4293902cfaa53c69276c2704ae American Thinker, by Jacob Dreizin Posted By: PageTurner- Fri, 19 35 2019 03:35:18 GMT Fifteen months from now, Democrats will nominate their least electable (with the possible exception of Kamala Harris) candidate for U.S. president, who will then go down in flames. This is not just because he´s a Castro-loving nut who traveled to Russia to bond with his fellow commies in the 1980s — voters have short memories and will forgive or ignore history that ancient. And Democrats themselves would not lose sleep over the irony of pitching Crazy Bernie after years of collusion delusion. The specific reasons for Crazy´s pending loss (if he lives that long) are as follows. Tom Steyer’s Itching, Scratching Need to Impeach Fri, 19 22 2019 03:22:05 GMT b8ec516561718bf0f09edeed091eb6a2fe38fe0a American Greatness, by Hayden R. Ludwig Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 19 22 2019 03:22:05 GMT As special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s two'year, $34 million investigation into the Trump campaign’s supposed “collusion” with Russia in 2016 turns out to be the “nothingburger” it was always believed to be, the investigation at least did reveal the Left’s ongoing inability to accept the results of the 2016 election.(Snip) Chief among them is Tom Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned Democratic mega'funder. Steyer, better known for his insistent pushing of an environmentalist (and given his investments, totally altruistic) agenda, is now the key funder behind the impeachment cabal, even after Mueller’s report greatly diminished the likelihood The Mueller report becomes a tar baby for the Democrats Fri, 19 18 2019 03:18:33 GMT d7a3f414087565b7246b7f96141a8f168be68b14 American Thinker, by Monica Showalter Posted By: PageTurner- Fri, 19 18 2019 03:18:33 GMT Now that the Mueller report is out, Democrats are in a quandary. Unable to admit that they were utterly wrong about sleazy Democratic operative Robbie Mook´s original Trump'colluded'with'the'Russians'to'steal'the'election'from'Hillary Clinton narrative, they´re now scanning every nook and cranny of the Mueller report to find something useful to use to impeach the president on. A very good analysis from the San Francisco Chronicle´s John Wildermuth and Tal Kopan, points to how problematic that is, given that the report had far fewer redactions to holler about than they´d hoped: Trump wants to evict illegals Fri, 19 14 2019 03:14:44 GMT 1c97fb290bda8d848e074dcdff9eb980f929477f, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 19 14 2019 03:14:44 GMT The Housing and Urban Development told Congress it plans to scrap a Bill Clinton rule that allowed illegal aliens to get public housing assistance. This is part of President Donald John Trump´s plan to remove bad policies from all prior presidents, not just Obama. The Washington Times reported we stopped asking more than 20 years ago people if they are citizens or if they are even here legally. Taxpayers just shelled housing subsidies out, no questions asked. The money goes to landlords, who had no incentive to check whether a renter is legal or not. Media doubles down on stupid Fri, 19 10 2019 03:10:09 GMT 4f7f64960dd18b627d34c4c66f0a7e65c9c71469, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 19 10 2019 03:10:09 GMT Having debated whether to boycott Bill Barr´s press conference on the Mueller Report, the press decided instead to boycott reality. Many in the media now portray the report as worse than an indictment. They want to salvage something because they bet the farm on his indictment and wound up as losers.The Washington Post declared, "Mueller´s report paints a damning portrait of Trump´s presidency." Gee, 17 Democrat lawyers are forced to admit they have nothing on him, and so they shoved a lot of unsubstantiated (and insignificant) gossip to pad their report. Australian Government Confirms Official Role in “Spygate”… Fri, 19 03 2019 03:03:10 GMT aa735cb708dcb1ffef91a0d7e056a674e01d86f2 Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 19 03 2019 03:03:10 GMT In response to media inquiry and FOIA demands, the government of Australia formally admitted today to the role of High Commissioner Alexander Downer and his engagements with George Papadopoulos in 2016. The timing coincides with the Mueller Report (released today), which states it was information about this engagement from Alexander Downer that opened the FBI counterintelligence investigation in July 2016. The Australian government cited the conclusion of the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation as the background for their willingness to comply with an 15'month'old FOIA request from Buzzfeed News. Venezuela’s Guaidó waging election-style campaign in a country with no plans for an election Fri, 19 57 2019 02:57:41 GMT 3e634855464eca51f47b70e493e4397f811289a6 Washington Post, by Arelis R. Hernández and Mariana Zuñiga Posted By: Moritz55- Fri, 19 57 2019 02:57:41 GMT The pot-banging crowds lined busy Avenida San Martin on a weekday afternoon, shouting his name: “Guaidó! Guaidó! Guaidó!” A caravan of armored vehicles pulled up. Throngs broke through a rank of police officers to get close to the man. Juan Guaidó stepped out, leaped atop a pickup truck and seized a microphone. “I’m not asking you to trust me, but to trust yourselves,” he said. “It’s our job to reclaim our lives, our normalcy and our Venezuela.” The crowd erupted in cheers. This is not how it was supposed to go for Guaidó. It´s time for Schiff to put or shut up Fri, 19 48 2019 02:48:24 GMT b2a3c3c138b37015073b8f162d39142c4e0bd5d2 American Thinker, by Silvio Canto, Jr. Posted By: JunkYardDog- Fri, 19 48 2019 02:48:24 GMT The Mueller, redactions and all, is out. The conclusion is no collusion or something like that. Nevertheless, there is a still a man out there who claims that collusion did happen. His name is Representative Adam Schiff or "The Media’s Pin'Up Doll" as Julie Kidd calls him: An original architect of the Trump'Russia collusion fable since the summer of 2016, Schiff shamelessly continues to lie to the American public with claims that the president and his team conspired with the Kremlin to win the presidential election. Robert Mueller Interviewed President Trump Six Days After Criminal “Obstruction” Investigation Began… Fri, 19 33 2019 02:33:11 GMT 1b37d13724901e4082d24cd78aed32fc20721d50 Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 19 33 2019 02:33:11 GMT Now that people are starting to absorb the intent and motivations of the Special Counsel investigation, it’s worth remembering Robert Mueller interviewed President Donald Trump six days after the FBI launched a criminal “obstruction of justice” investigation, and ten months after the FBI launched the counterintelligence investigation…. ..The May 16, 2017, Mueller meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office. The Mueller Report shows there never was a Trump Russia'Collusion'Conspiracy case to begin with; and with the report showing how most of Mueller’s investigative time was spent gathering evidence for an ‘obstruction case’; Exclusive–Bill Cassidy Designing Republican Federalist Healthcare Plan Fri, 19 23 2019 02:23:23 GMT 83cd82448c8bcda9a1fdd4bce919dd663ce1f331 Breitbart Politics, by Sean Moran Posted By: M2- Fri, 19 23 2019 02:23:23 GMT Sen. Bill Cassidy (R'LA) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview Thursday that Republicans need to counter Medicare for All with their own proposal. Cassidy revealed that he continues to work on his own proposal, based on the successful CHIP program, that would allow states to design a healthcare plan that works best for their citizens. Sen. Cassidy, a doctor and one of the Senate’s foremost experts on health care, spoke with Breitbart News regarding his many many proposals to lower healthcare costs, as President Donald Trump recently declared that the Republican party would become the party of health care. George Conway: Congress Has ‘Constitutional Duty’ to Remove ‘Cancer’ Trump Fri, 19 20 2019 02:20:37 GMT 2a2705e52a855a9fd3328e910c48714fdf502460 Breitbart Politics, by Joshue Caplan Posted By: M2- Fri, 19 20 2019 02:20:37 GMT Attorney George Conway, husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, called on Congress to remove President Donald Trump from office following the Thursday release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. “What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion'editorial. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.” The frequent Trump critic went on to argue that Mueller’s findings lay out how the president committed wrongdoing disqualifying him from the presidency. “The investigation that Trump tried to interfere Mueller Report: No Collusion or Obstruction.

Rush Limbaugh here and the Excellence in Broadcasting Network. I’m just jumping straight into it. This report is exactly what I thought it was gonna be, and it is being reacted to exactly as I thought it would be reacted to. There is no need for a 400'page report. There’s only one reason for a 400'page report, and that is to create the news environment that is occurring right now. This report could have been issued in one page: We found no evidence of collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, period, and we don’t have enough to The three colors of martyrdom Fri, 19 25 2019 01:25:21 GMT 0741b0b8d4bbc346480f9e39ec5632a51b161b40 PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez Posted By: Hazymac- Fri, 19 25 2019 01:25:21 GMT In April 2019 letter Pope emeritus Benedict wrote an article describing how the church lost the ability to govern itself and found many of its formation centers turned into hatcheries for sexual abusers. It was a two step process. First the Popes lost the culture war within the Church. "In the 20 years from 1960 to 1980, the previously normative standards regarding sexuality collapsed entirely." Efforts to reverse the trend were dismissed conservative claptrap.

The Mueller report has been released and guess what; Attorney General William Barr’s summary was accurate. There was no collusion. There was no conspiracy. On the obstruction charges, there wasn’t enough evidence to bring forward formal charges. Here is where Democrats will make their last stand. Obstruction junction is ahead. It’s the only thing the Left can keep going from this clown show. I’m all for it. The longer the liberal media looks like idiots, the better it is for us. And if the Russian collusion myth was bad, The Notre Dame Fire: Our Fault, Our Most Grievous Fault Fri, 19 00 2019 12:00:58 GMT f27aff1ba97b45fa3ceb6f4e21ded6bb0cbc4e93 FrontPage Magazine, by Milo Yiannopoulos Posted By: Tianne- Fri, 19 00 2019 12:00:58 GMT Buildings like Notre Dame do not erupt into flames spontaneously. That’s not how God works, even to punish a civilization as deep in moral ruin as ours. My suspicions, and those of almost everyone I know, are hardly calmed when we see Fox News—yes, even Fox—repeatedly refusing to host an honest discussion of the possibility, even as experts tell French TV that eight hundred year old timber simply doesn’t burn that way without an accelerant. I mean, it’s not as though news networks restrain their hosts from wild speculation during other crises. So, understandably, the first reaction from anyone who has Bill the DNC for the Mueller Report Fri, 19 11 2019 11:11:32 GMT 6b03b3c0d8452fb0ff055d100c33abf47c6f4d53 FrontPage Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield Posted By: Tianne- Fri, 19 11 2019 11:11:32 GMT After 22 months and $32 million, a team of 19 prosecutors with twice as many staff members, wielding 2,800 subpoenas, 500 witnesses, and 500 search warrants, produced nothing multiplied by zero. Nothing except over 400 pages of allegations, innuendo and slime with a great big hole in the center. Mueller and his intrepid team of Democrats had set out to investigate a great conspiracy. After all those millions of dollars, the raids and indictments, there’s no collusion. The supposed counterintelligence investigation turned up nothing on President Trump except his hostility to the witch hunt against him. If firing an FBI director is a Outbreak of Colorblindness Strikes Chicago Reporters Fri, 19 08 2019 11:08:28 GMT 18730a5cd93f75c467149fc3255d1c743c9318f7 American Thinker, by Colin Flaherty Posted By: magnante- Fri, 19 08 2019 11:08:28 GMT Chicago picked a strange time to go all colorblind on us. The occasion was the occasional riot in one of America’s premier high'end shopping districts: the Magnificent Mile. Wednesday night, 500 people rampaged through downtown looting, destroying property, attacking white people, defying police, stopping traffic, threatening tourists, and created lots of mayhem and chaos. (snip) If local media is to be believed, race had nothing to do with the fact that every single one of the rioters was black. Strange behavior from a local media that is obsessed with race Mueller’s Despicable Parthian Shot Fri, 19 39 2019 10:39:09 GMT 779deecd99506191797e2b8e8a62ae6a8d4cbb87 American Spectator, by David Catron Posted By: garnet- Fri, 19 39 2019 10:39:09 GMT When special counsel Robert Mueller finally finished his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, he produced a report that confirms much of the criticism President Trump has leveled at him during the past two years. It clearly reveals that Mueller’s partisan investigators were determined to “get Trump,” and that they were frustrated by their inability to do so. This is most obvious in the section dealing with obstruction of justice. As it is phrased in the Introduction to Volume II, “[T]his report does not conclude that the President committed a crime.” An honest evaluation would have stopped there. Mueller, Trump, and ´two years of bulls*it´ Fri, 19 34 2019 10:34:33 GMT cff8dbc0d15d2c38ccf6a36ddfd597621abd19eb Washington Examiner, by Byron York Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 19 34 2019 10:34:33 GMT Late last month President Trump met with a group of Republican senators on Capitol Hill. He discussed a lot of topics, but his most memorable comment came when he called Trump'Russia special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation "two years of bulls*it." Now, the public has Mueller´s 448'page report, and it tends to support the president´s assessment. In this sense: At its heart, the Trump'Russia probe was about one question: Did the Trump campaign conspire, coordinate, or collude with Russia to influence the 2016 election? Mueller has concluded that did not happen. Once more, only lumps of coal in certain Christmas stockings Fri, 19 22 2019 10:22:37 GMT b57409d983b129d2cb69c7a389949a5f39681393 Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 19 22 2019 10:22:37 GMT It was Christmas again this week and all the Democrats got in their stockings were two or three lumps of coal. Or maybe it wasn’t Christmas, but Groundhog Day. The earlier summary of Robert Mueller’s findings was only a summary, after all, and everyone knew the actual report had all the good stuff. Mr. Mueller wouldn’t let us down. Ah, but he did. Great expectations dashed again. The Democrats, but for the dwindling number of grown'ups in the party of Jefferson, Jackson, Harry S. Truman and FDR, were so sure that Mr. Mueller would deliver the goods
