YES, TRUMP WAS UNDER SURVEILLANCE

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. says members of the intelligence community collected "incidental" communications of the Trump transition team during legal surveillance operations of foreign targets in November, December and January.   Nunes said the surveillance collection was "legally collected foreign intelligence under FISA incidental collection." But he also said he was "alarmed" the intelligence "ended up in reporting channels and was widely disseminated."  

Asked if he thought Trump was spied on, Nunes replied: "I'm not gonna get into legal definitions here, but clearly I have a concern."

So there it is: the truth is finally leaking out and, where there's smoke... there's fire.  Those who have been trying so firmly to paint Trump as a lying psychopath are now certainly going to apologize, aren't they? 

Well... aren't they?

DOES GRAHAM WANT TRUMP IMPEACHED?

The illustrious Senator Lindsey Graham, the guy who ran for president against Trump in the Republican primaries and who lost his shirt doing so, hammered away at Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, and demanded to know whether or not Gorsuch thought that Trump could be impeached if, for example, he allowed waterboarding when waterboarding is against the law.  Gorsuch answered appropriately when he said that "No man is above the law."  

This is not the first time that Graham has indicated his disdain with Trump.  Ever since he got blown away in the primaries, Graham has been outspoken in criticizing Trump, although he softened his  rhetoric once Trump won the election.  

But the suggestion underscores the fact that not everyone in the Republican Party is yet on board with the Trump machine.  And putting the question out in the manner that he did surely shows that Graham would probably salivate at the prospect of a Trump impeachment.  

With jackals like Graham in leadership positions within the party, the possibility of another Republican debacle looms like never before.

STARBUCKS IN DEEP TROUBLE?

Right after President Trump initially announced he was temporarily suspending travel from seven Middle Eastern countries, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that he disagreed with the move and that Starbucks would hire 10,000 immigrants from those countries over the next ten years.  Consumer confidence and perception of the Starbucks brand took an immediate nose dive, and stock values soon followed. 

Starbucks has been quick to downplay the Schulz move; Schulz will at least temporarily stay on the management team to "shift his focus to innovation, design, and development of Starbucks Reserve Roasteries around the world, expansion of the Starbucks Reserve retail store format and the company’s social impact initiatives and focus on Starbucks next wave of retail innovation.”  

Anytime you see a top executive step down to a lesser position, you know he's on his way out.  And so it should be, in my humble opinion.  People like him are to blame for this incessant division we are faced with in the country today, always putting their own political agendas well-ahead of the best American interests.

WOW! TED CRUZ FINALLY GOT SOMETHING RIGHT!

Regarding the pending Republican attempt to pass a  "new" health care plan, Ted Cruz said yesterday on FACE THE NATION, ”My biggest concern with the House bill is it doesn’t lower premiums.”  He added, “If Republicans hold a big press conference and pat ourselves on the back that we have repealed Obamacare, and everyone’s premiums keep going up, people will be ready to tar and feather us in the streets and quite rightly.” 

You are quit correct, Mr. Cruz, and it will mean the end of the Republican Party.  If this "new" plan doesn't get the government out of health care and eliminate the associated ObamaCare bureaucracy, the Republicans will be very lucky to come out of the 2018 elections with a single seat left in the House.... and once again, the Republicans will have nobody to blame except themselves.

SAVAGE HATE CRIME

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage and his dog were brutally beaten as they exited a restaurant in Tiburon, California, when a man charged up and began yelling “Hey Weiner,” referring to Savage’s given name.   An eyewitness reported that the assailant kicked Savage’s poodle out of the way before grabbing Savage and tossing him to the ground.  Savage's dog Teddy was not injured, but Savage himself was bloodied, bruised and shaken.  The attack obviously appears to have been a hate crime directed at conservative Americans.  
 
It was only a matter of time before the vitriolic hatred which permeates the Democrat Party and left-wing radicals of this country would boil over into physical acts of violence.  That the Democrats and their propaganda media machines would cover this atrocity up by failing to make it front page news and by failing to demand an end to this current era of intense hostility is reprehensible.  

They are not Americans; they are nothing more than fascist street thugs who by their actions demonstrate the scourge which has infested our society.

MEGYN WHO?

Remember Megyn Kelly, the used-to-be informative FOX NEWS host who got too big for her britches and turned on her audience, as well as her mentors, by setting Trump up for the kill during the first Presidential Debates?  She's the one who, when her ratings started to plummet, decided she'd rather jump ship than come to grips with the reality that she had lost her way... and her voice in the evening TV lineups.  

Well, she struck a deal to take her act to NBC.  That was back in January and NBC has yet to air her first show.  Don't you wonder why that is?  

In the meantime, Tucker Carlson has taken her time slot at FOX NEWS and he's knocking the ratings out of the park.  In fact, eyebrows are being raised at FOX NEWS as they begin to understand the significance of what is happening.  Did they overpay her?  Was she really not all that popular?  

Maybe someday she will wake up and realize that she is to blame for her own demise.  

But somehow... I doubt it.  Liberals never do.

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS IN DEEP DOO DOO

The full extent of the information technology data breach in Democrat's Congressional offices is coming to light.  Pakistani IT employees employed by the Democrats have been caught stealing confidential information by the truckload.  “They had access to EVERYTHING. Correspondence, emails, confidential files – if it was stored on the Member system, they had access to it,” a former House Information Resources technology inside employee with first-hand knowledge of the situation told The Daily Caller News Foundation. 

Imran Awan bullied central IT to bend the rules for him so there wouldn’t be a paper trail about the unusually high permissions he obtained.  So their actions were not logged and members have no way of knowing what information may have taken.  

In their arrogant elitism, the Democrats have once again proven that they are dumb as posts.

WHAT A PIECE OF WORK

Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara, who was just fired by Trump after he refused to resign for Sessions, is now intimating that the real reason he was fired was because he was investigating corruption in the Trump Administration.  

These jerks never quit, do they.  I mean, Trump has only been in office for about six weeks and he's supposedly got a corruption machine in place and operating already?  

Bharara, like his left-wing counterparts, is a disgrace to the legal profession and he's definitely a very sore loser.  His poor little feelings probably got hurt because Trump didn't personally invite him up to the White House to do the firing.  I mean, after all.... He did have a meeting with Trump way back when at Trump Tower and came out jubilant that Trump had asked him to stay on, didn't he?  Well no, not exactly.  Trump had asked him if he would be willing to stay on if asked.  

Obviously, the sniveling little tyrant got his feelings hurt and his ego crushed, and in the process he let the whole country know who is really to blame.

EVEN THE NAME IS ALMOST THE SAME

ACA = Affordable Care Act = ObamaCare

AHCA = American Health Care Act = RyanCare

Not only am I surprised, but I'm very disappointed that Trump thinks this smoke and mirror game is acceptable.  

Just who do they think they're kidding?

SENATORS DEMAND MORE FOREIGN WORKERS TO REPLACE U.S. BLUE COLLAR EMPLOYEES

A recent report by BREITBART.COM says 31 Senators are asking for more lenient restrictions on foreign visas, so more foreigners can replace American workers and reduce labor costs. 

For the record, they are:  
Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), John Cornyn (R-TX), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Chris Coons (D-DE), John Barrasso (R-WY), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Susan Collins (R-ME), Tom Carper (D-DE), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Patty Murray (D-WA), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Angus King (I-ME), Tim Scott (R-SC), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Richard Burr (R-NC), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), James Lankford (R-OK), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), and Bob Casey (D-PA).

 I somehow don't think Americans will be lining up to vote for them in November 2018.
