Mueller is Out for Trump’s Head!


: Interesting James Comey insight...

Our Columbine Correspondent, Joe Rhodes has forwarded to us an intriguing  piece with very interesting viewpoints of the James Comey scenarios by which we have recently  been absorbed .  It brings out scary aspects of the  SWAMP!!..as well as lifting a dark curtain that hangs between the public and the trash that breathes inside the beltway.  If any of you happen to have college aged kids or grandkids in "Snowflake  Village" you might want to share this perfect history lesson with them.  It is a shining example of the bullshit found in the liberal morass of the beltway.

Thanks Joe.  We will attempt to locate the author. 
Found the author!!  Rob Gray, a political writer for "Medium" (?)F.


 "James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover  for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC."

 He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at  exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without I getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swam denizens.

 Begin by noticing how the  President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his  files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.

 The swamp is on notice that the I President is on to them, they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are roadkill.

 THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE COMEY SCAM. 


Taken from credible public sources (readily available if you want to look.

 The Highlights:

 Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90’s. He only gained power and money by being the DOJ official who "investigated” and cleared Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clinton's totally corrupt pardon (for huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as
 Clinton was leaving the Presidency.

 This is how Comey began his career as a creature of the “swamp” years ago, as a servant of the Clintons. Comey provided “cover” for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the  Clintons upped their corruption game and
>> gained incredible wealth  through their foundation after leaving the White House. A huge part of the scheme was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison, and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be part of the corruption  machine, making him powerful and wealthy.

 Immediately after doing the  Clinton’s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney (Counsel) of the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in that position Lockheed became a major contributor (millions) to the Clinton Foundation and its fake charity spin-offs. In return for these payment to Clinton Inc., Lockheed received huge contracts with Hillary’s state department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.
 In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheed’s successful relationship with the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down from  Lockheed and received a $6 million dollar payout for his services.

 In 2013, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a scandal. investigations by federal authorities and law enforcement had revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for Mexican Drug Cartels, channeling money for Saudi banks who were financing terror, moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major criminal activity. HSBC’s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the Bank and its officials.> HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor (many millions) throughout the “investigaion” and Bill Clinton was being paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events (while Hillary was Sec of State). Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were paid to do, and let HSBC off of the hook for a paltry 1.2 Billion dollar fine (paid by its stockholders), and not one Director, officer or management member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal crime. Exactly when everyone involved with HSBC Bank (including the Clintons and all of their “donors”) were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a Director and Member of the Board of HSBC (in the middle of the fallout from the scandal). He was part of the effort to cover up the scandal and make HSBC “respectable” again.

 After about a year as HSBC  director, despite his lack of any law enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications for the job,  Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama. The only qualification Comey had was that the Clinton’s and their cronies knew Comey was in bed with them, was compromised and was willing to do their
 dirty work. Comey was appointed to the FBI right when Hillary was leaving the State Department, and was vulnerable to the FBI because she had been using a private-server,
 mis-handling classified information, selling access to favors/contracts from the State Department to Clinton Foundation Donors (including Comey’s Lockheed Martin), and much more. Remember that this was about the time the Inspector General of the State Department found over 2 billion “missing” from the State Department finances during Hillary's tenure.

 The obvious conclusion is that Comey was appointed to the FBI (along with other reliable Clinton-Obama cronies) to run interference for the Clinton’s and Obama’s at the nation’s federal law enforcement agency(in conjunction with a corrupt Department of Justice). Comey was and is owned by the Clintons. He owed all of his power and wealth to being part of their machine and providing them with cover.  In late 2015 and early 2016,  information began to come out about the Clinton Foundation and its use by the Clinton’s as a multi-billion dollar slush fund for  corruption and political favors. (even Chelsea’s wedding had been paid for by the “charity) This was right as Hillary was beginning her campaign for President. It was revealed that the Foundation had never completed required reports or had an audit. Supposedly the FBI, under Comey, began an “investigation” of the Clinton Funds. A “professional” accounting firm was brought in by the  Clintons to do a review, file some reports, make recommendations to the Clinton Foundation Board, and provide a veneer of
 legitimacy to the Clinton Fund operations. Predictably, one of the  partners in the firm that was chosen (and paid lots of money) is the brother of James Comey (FBI Director). This brother owes James  Comey $700,000 for a loan James gave him to buy a house, and presumably some of the money from the Clinton Fund was used to  make payments to James on the loan. Over 2 years later and nothing has happened as a result of the FBI “investigating” the Clinton Funds under Comey.

 No one in congress or federal law enforcement was intending to actually> pursue the Clintons, but Judicial Watch and other independent sources server, sending out classified information, etc. This information began to come out right in the middle of her campaign to be coronated as President. A “show” investigation had to be performed to appear to look into it and clear her. Who to use?...the reliable shill James Comey. As head of the FBI, Comey (and his lackeys in key positions) deliberately screwed up the investigation into Hillary’s use of a private server and her plain violation of national security law on
 classified information. The investigation was deliberately mis-handled in every aspect. Comey gave immunity to all of Hillary’s lackeys, did not use subpoenas or warrants, lost evidence, allowed the destruction of evidence,  failed to do any searches or seizures of evidence, did not use a grand-jury, did not swear witnesses, did not record testimony, allowed attorneys to represent multiple suspects (corrupting the testimony). Everything that could be done toruin the FBI  investigation and to cover for Hillary was done. A “slam-dunk” case became a mess. Immunity was given every witness even though
>> they provided no help. Maybe more importantly, by focusing the FBI on the email scandal, attention was drawn away from the much  bigger scandal of the Clinton Foundation that could bring down a huge number of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, and even governments.

 Originally, Comey’s job was  simply to totally botch the Hillary investigation and ruin the case against her and her minions within the FBI regarding he emails. At the same time Comey also started work on a parallel  assignment to illegally “wiretap” and surveil Donald Trump and every other person involved in the Republican campaign. He was tasked with digging up any dirt or fact that could be used to hurt the Trump campaign later. This included using a fake “dossier” paid for by the Clinton campaign to obtain authorization for the surveillance and to try to associate Trump’s campaign with the Russians. Under Comey’s direction the Trump/republican campaign was monitored and surveilled and all
 information was provided to  the Obama White House and the Clinton camp all during the campaign.
 Lorretta Lynch was supposed to complete the cover up for Hillary as Attorney General by issuing a finding that the deliberately botched FBI “investigation” did not  justify prosecution of Hillary. But someone screwed up and Bill Clinton was video’d meeting with Loretta Lynch in Arizona shortly before she was supposed to make her decision on Hillary (interference with a federal investigation), and Lynch could no longer credibly squash the Hillary scandal.
The solution, give the job to James. The Clinton’s owned him and he would have to do whatever is necessary to provide cover.

Comey goes on national TV and violates every rule of the FBI, the Justice Department and American law enforcement by revealing some of the FBI’s “evidence” of what Hillary did (enough to make it look like the FBI and Comey did some investigation), then declaring that there was no “intent” and clearing Hillary. He did what he was ordered to do. The Justice Department and Obama backed Comey’s cover up and it looked like Hillary had survived the scandal.
Found, classified emails from Hillary on the Weiner laptop. 
The NYPD began leaking details to new-media outlets, and the story was about to explode. Comey once again stepped in to cover Hillary. He short-circuited the NYPD leaks by publicly acknowledging the  laptop and the emails, but then claimed just days later that hundreds of thousands of emails had all been reviewed and “nothing new” was on the laptop. Once again, he had done his job. Providing cover and FBI “protection” for Hillary on the newest scandal when it broke.
If Hillary had won, Comey would have kept right on providing cover for the corruption of the Clinton machine. He would have kept the FBI paralyzed, prevented the Clinton Fund from being investigated, and continued to do his job as the Clinton’s personal scandal eraser at the FBI.

 BUT TRUMP WON!

 The Swamp and its bottom-dwelling denizens realize they are at risk from this political outsider who is not connected to the uni-party machines. Before Trump takes office, a “failsafe” plan is implemented to ruin Trump’s administration and try to force him out of the
 Presidency. The key players committed to the plan are the democrat politicians, the RINO establishment, the media, the Obama-Clinton operatives embedded throughout the intelligence agencies and the entire bureaucracy, and most importantly, the Obama DOJ and JAMES COMEY. The scheme is to smear Trump with Russian “connections,”  through a fake FBI “investigation” and more importantly, to trap him into a charge of criminal interference with the FBI.

 COMEY IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE SCHEME TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP.

 The surveillance of the Trump campaign is continued after he is elected, all participants are
 “unmasked” illegally, and the transcripts are leaked throughout the government and to the media. When General Flynn appropriately calls Russian officials on behalf of Trump, they brush off the old fake “dossier” and all of the surveillance of the campaign, and Comey creates the “Russian Conspiracy” investigation. With help by RINO swamp kingpin and warmonger sell-out McCain, the fake "Russian pee dossier” is leaked to the press. There is no actual evidence of any collusion or connection between Trump or his campaign with Russia, but that does not prevent Comey from initiating an “investigation” at the FBI.This provides Comey with  protection from Trump firing him immediately.

 Comey (or his minions)  constantly leak news of the “Russia Investigation” to the media, and the media does its scripted part by screaming constantly about “Russia.” The Democrats fill their role and constantly scream about “Russia.” McCain and the RINO
 establishment do their part by promising to “investigate” how the Russians influenced the
 campaign.

 Immediately after Trump is  sworn in, the DOJ, Hillary/Obama operatives and Comey start the direct attack. This is before Sessions has been appointed to the  Department of Justice and the DOJ is still controlled by Obama operatives. DOJ Obama appointee Sally Yates approaches the White  House with news that General Flynn had been in contact with Russia and alleges that he might be compromised. She reveals that there is an FBI “investigation” into the Russia ties (which they are constantly leaking to the media themselves). The White House Counsel (who Yates talks to, not Trump) asks for some more information.

 The day before the promised additional information is to be provided by Yates to the White House, Comey sets up a dinner with Trump. If he can get Trump to ask about Flynn or try to intervene regarding Flynn or Russia then Trump can be charged with “interfering with an FBI investigation.”

 MY OPINION IS THAT COMEY SURVEILLED AND “TAPED” THIS MEETING IN HIS ATTEMPT TO SET UP TRUMP.

 This is a two-pronged attack. It protects Comey and DOJ democrat holdovers from being terminated by the new administration because they are involved in an “ongoing investigation” that they control the timetable on (albeit one with absolutely no evidence). If Trump fires Comey then he is “interfering with the investigation” which is itself a federal crime that the FBI could then “investigate.” Alternatively, if they can get Trump to question Comey about Flynn or try to get him to back off of Flynn or the “Russia” investigation, then they again have him “interfering.”

 Trump knows it is a set up by Comey and that he is probably being recorded (tips from FBI or DOJ who are not part of the corruption?) Maybe because his phone calls in the Whitehouse as President have already been bugged and released to the media. (FBI is in the best position to do this). maybe because he was used to the Mafia in NY trying to shake him down every time he built a hotel. Comey tells Trump that Trump is not under investigation regarding Russia, but that others involved with the campaign are being investigated. Trump does not take the  bait and attempt to intervene about Flynn or
>> the Russia scam. Later, Flynn is cut loose because he is being used by Comey and the Obama-holdover Justice to try to damage Trump. He did nothing wrong, but if he stayed, the charge of “interfering with an investigation” might seem to have teeth. Comey verbally tells Trump on two more occasions that he is not being investigated, but refuses to state this fact publicly or when testifying in Congress.

 Trump knows everything I have gone through above about Comey. But he has to move carefully. He has to get his Attorney General and Deputy AG in place, get enough leverage on the Russia narrative, and ideally get rid of Comey in a way that allows him to obtain all the information that Comey has been accumulating (if he is taping Trump he is> taping others). Comey, and others testify in Congress. Under oath, both Sally Yates and Intelligence officials from the Obama administration State that there has been no actual evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. More>> importantly, Comey, while refusing to say that Trump is not under investigation,  testifies that he has informed the Senate Intelligence Committee heads who exactly is under investigation regarding Russia.

 Trump tells almost no one at White House that he is moving against Comey (so no leaks… no listening in on his conversations). Trump somehow contacts Sen.  Grassley (the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee) and confirms that Comey told the Senator that Trump was not under  investigation personally. Trump gets both the Attorney General and the new Deputy Attorney General to legitimately review Comey’s unprofessional actions at the FBI and to recommend in writing that Trump terminate Comey. Somehow Comey goes to California (at the request of AG Sessions or already scheduled and someone at FBI telling Trump?).

Trump seizes the moment and acts. While Comey is in California, 3000 miles away and 7 hours from his office, Trump prepares a letter firing him (with Sessions and the Deputy AG recommendations attached). In the letter Trump states that he had been told 3 times by Comey that he (Trump) was not under investigation. The letter is hand-delivered to the FBI headquarters by DOJ officials to lock-down and seize everything in Comey’s office, including all surveillance files (“tapes”) of Trump and others. All of Comey’s files, docs, computers and “tapes” are taken to Sessions at DOJ. They are not taken to the Whitehouse or Trump, but to Sessions, who has every right to have them. Sessions can tell Trump that Comey had surveillance tapes of  Trump that contradict what Comey has been telling Trump, and perhaps tapes of conversations with other swamp “conspirators.” But Trump does not have them personally or at the Whitehouse.
 Comey learns he has been fired when the media broadcasts it in California. He had no idea it was coming and he is ticked. On cue, the Democrat politicians and media begin screaming about Trump’s “interference with the Russia investigation” in accordance with the plan
>> to set up Trump for that charge. The Swamp wants to blow up the Russia narrative using Comey, and Comey is set to testify before Congress to try to hurt Trump by saying he was interfering with the FBI investigation. Comey intends to follow through with the plan to take down Trump. But because of his brilliant timing on this, Trump has Comey’s files, documents and information safely with Sessions at DOJ. Trump sends out a “crazy” tweet that says: “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”

 The media and the politicians go crazy about the “inappropriateness” of this tweet. They accuse Trump of “taping” everyone at the WhiteHouse (forgetting that the Presidents phone calls with foreign leaders have been “taped” without his knowledge.).

 Notice that Trump did not say he taped anyone, or that he has any tapes at the White House. It seems apparent that Trump is telling Comey that the DOJ (who has every legal right to possess it) has the surveillance information and files from Comey’s office, the “tapes" obtained and kept by Comey. Comey and all the Swamp Creatures understand the clear message… their plan has failed and Trump’s DOJ is now holding all the cards.

 The whole Russia interference scheme crashes and burns. While the mouthpiece media, Hollywood and the insane fringe continue to scream about Russia and Comey being fired, the politicians who will soon be in the crosshairs of a legitimate (and ticked) FBI and DOJ are starting to fall strangely silent. Comey realizes all the leverage is with Trump and that he will be lucky if he is not added to the Clinton Death List because of any baths near an electrical outlet or get on any airplanes).

 Comey tells Congress he will not testify and writes a public letter to the FBI accepting his firing and telling them he does not want to discuss why or how he was terminated. Senator Grassley and Senator Feinstein (she must be covering her butt in fear …) issue public statements confirming that Comey told them that the “Russia Investigation” does not involve President Trump personally.

 AG Sessions and his Deputy AG use the Comey trove of information to determine who has been part of the Comey Syndicate at the FBI. They will be appointing an “interim” Director of the FBI shortly who has not been compromised by Comey, Clinton or Obama. That “interim” Director does not have to be approved by Congress or anyone, and can immediately begin cleaning house at the FBI of all Comey/Clinton/Obama minions, initiating investigations of the Clintons, Clinton Fund, violations of intelligence confidentiality laws by Susan Rice and Obama, human trafficking in DC, political corruption… draining the Swamp. Using the Comey files they can be fairly certain they are not getting another Comey as an “interim", and they do not have to wait for the circus of appointing a new permanent “Director” through Congressional approval. Most of the heavy lifting on rooting out FBI corruption and starting
 investigations into the swamp will be done by the “interim” before a new director is appointed. I suspect the Trump administration hopes the approval FBI Director process will be slow and tedious, so there is no political interference with the housecleaning that is starting.

 In one masterstroke, Trump has eliminated a truly toxic and dangerous enemy to his administration, and our country, dealt a horrendous blow to the Clinton/Obama and deep state machines, begun the restoration of the integrity of the FBI and the DOJ, and gained incredible ammunition to begin hunting the foul creatures in the swamp.
-James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama.

See what happened when Work Requirements for Food Stamps became required..

WHAT A SURPRISE!!!

Participation in the food stamp program plunged by 85 percent in 13 counties in Alabama after officials required that recipients must work, look for work, or get approved job training, a state agency says.

In those 13 counties, enrollment in food stamps dropped over four months from 5,538 able-bodied adults without dependents to 831 such recipients. 
Statewide, a total of 13,663 able-bodied adults without children or other dependents were enrolled in the food stamp program before the change implemented Jan. 1, according to the Alabama Department of Human Resources, As of May 1, the statewide number had dropped to 7,483.
In December of 2014 Maine Gov. Paul LePage, a Republican, enforced work requirements for food stamp recipients beginning.

Within three months 
Maine officials reported the number of those on food stamps who were able-bodied adults without dependents declined from 13,332 to 2,678!!!

Caseworkers in Maine attribute that huge decrease in enrollment to many recipients’ choosing to go without benefits rather than perform a minimum of only six hours per week of community service,  or other aspects of the work requirements.


Wouldn't you think that with all the smart asses we send to congress they would be able to figure this one out????
F.

Things the NY Times didn't mention:


Remember when ?

   Remember when Donald Trump was business partners with the Russian government  and his company got 53 million from the Russian government investment fund  called Rusnano that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as "Putin's Child"? 
Oh wait that wasn't Trump it was John Podesta!
Remember when Donald Trump received 500 thousand for a speech in Moscow and paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies? 
Oh wait that was Bill Clinton!
Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of US uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State which gave control of it to Rosatom the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation? 
Oh, wait that was Hillary Clinton!
Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn't a part of approving the deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his emails were leaked showing he did lie about it? 
Oh, wait the was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump got 145 million dollars from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians? 
Oh wait that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian Oligarchs like the chairman of a company that's part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster, the wife of the mayor of Moscow, and a close pal of Putins? 
Oh wait.. that was the Clinton Foundation.

Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records? 
Oh wait that was Hillary  

Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the 80s called and it wanted its Russian policy back. The Cold War is over?
Oh wait that was President Obama.

NOTES FROM THE " Big Agenda" by David Horowitz

Editor's Note:   In anticipation of several hours of travel for a little golf in Mexico (Playa del Carmen) I picked up David Horowitz's new best seller, "The Big Agnenda".  I could not resist sharing a couple excerpts with you before boarding.  I highly recommend it.  It really peels off the layers of "mental illness" that lurks on the "Dark Side".

2. It’s Time to Take the Gloves Off

"THE PROGRESSIVE VISION OF American society as a hierarchy of races, genders, and classes

is delusional and destructive, but it has been the dominant force in America’s political culture for more than half a century. It is the creed of America’s society-shaping institutions—schools and the media—and its party line of political correctness is now the conventional wisdom in America’s boardrooms and courts. How can conservatives and Republicans hope to resist the societal transformation Democrats are bent on achieving? How can they stop a movement that is antidemocratic and socialist and determined to weaken America even further in the face of grave threats from powers in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East "

2. It’s Time to Take the Gloves Off

Middle East? 

Resistance begins with the will to confront the adversary head on. That is the attitude that characterized Donald Trump’s campaign from its inception. But for many conservatives, no-holds-barred, in-your-face brawling is problematic to begin with. Unlike progressives, conservatives are constrained by temperament and precept from engaging in politics as a form of warfare—even though their progressive opponents do so as a matter of course. Conservatives are also realists about human nature and are therefore prone to resignation. Reluctance to go for the jugular and willingness to accept defeat can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you are reluctant to fight, you are inevitably headed toward defeat when the other side is relentless and despises you. It is only for those who persist in the battle and never let up that the possibility of changing the result comes into view.

PIN DROP. (A clasic !)

JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in  France  in the early 60's when
DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO.  DeGaulle said he wanted all US
military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded,
"Does that include those who are buried here?"
DeGaulle did not respond.

When in  England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury  if our plans for  Iraq  were just an example of
'empire building' by George Bush.

He answered by saying,
"Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders.  The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."

A  U.S. Navy Admiral
was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies  At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the

Think on this: ...20 requirements and lessons of their religion.

1] Kill any one who insults Islam or Moham-mad. (Koran.33;57-61).
2) Kill all Muslims who leave Islam. (Koran.2;217/4;89/Bukhari.9;84-57).
3) Koran can not be doubted. (Koran.2;1).
4) Islam is the only acceptable religion. (Koran.3;85).
5) Muslims must fight (jihad) to non-Muslims, even if they don't want to. (Koran.2;216).
6) We the non-Muslims are pigs and apes. (Koran. 2;62-65/Koran.5;59-60/Koran.7;166).
7) We the non-Muslims cannot be friends with Muslims. (Koran.5;51).
8) We the non-Muslims sworn enemies of Muslims and Islam. (Koran.4;101).
9) We the non-Muslims can be raped as sex slave. (Koran.4;3 & 24/5;89/23;5/33;50/58;3/70;30).
10) We the non-Muslims the vilest of creatures deserving no mercy. (Koran.98;6).
11) Muslim must terrorise us (non-Muslims). (Koran.8;12 &59-60/ Bukhari.4;52;220).
12) Muslims must strike terror into non-Muslims hearts. (Koran.8;60).
13) Muslims must lie to us (non-Muslims) to strengthen and spread Islam. (Koran.3;28?16;106).
14) Muslims are allowed to behead us (non_Muslims) (Koran.47;4).
15) Muslims are guaranteed to go to heaven if they kill us (non-Muslims). (Koran.9;111).
16) Marrying and divorcing pre-pubescent children is OK. (Koran.65;4).
17) Wife beating is OK. (Koran.4;34).
18) Raping wives is OK. (Koran.2;223).
19) Proving rape requires 4 (four) male Muslim witnesses. (Koran.24;13).
20) Muslims are allowed to crucify and amputate us (non-Muslims). Koran.8;12/47;4).

It is claimed that in the the vast majority of Muslims are "Peaceful"!!  Where the hell are they?

'The most terrifying words In the English language are: I'm from the government

'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.'

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too
strong.

'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress..

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works For the federal government but

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is government
program.' 

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned
that it bears a striking resemblance to the first'

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:
If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it'

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.'

A very interesting Dick Morris piece re: an "off the radar" infiltration with Muslim money.

You have to be pretty dense to keep voting for the Democrats !....

On Tuesday,(4/18) the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) released the 10th edition of its Rich States, Poor States study, and it shows that red states have better economies than blue states in 2017.
The study, co-authored by economist Dr. Arthur Laffer, Heritage Foundation fellow Stephen a pro-growth trend across the nation for 2017.” Some of the worst-performing states, though, are run by Democrats.
Moore, and ALEC vice president Jonathan Williams, shows “
Democrats control either the legislature, the governor’s office, or both in each of the bottom ten states in ALEC’s study.
Those states are, from #41 to #50:
  • #41: Oregon (Dems control the legislature and governor’s office)
  • #42: Maine (Dems split control of the legislature with Republicans)
  • #43: Hawaii (Dems control the legislature and governor’s office)
  • #44: Illinois (Dems control the legislature)
  • #45: Minnesota (Dems control the governor’s office)
  • #46: Connecticut (Dems control the legislature and governor’s office)
  • #47: California (Dems control the legislature and governor’s office)
  • #48: New Jersey (Dems control the legislature)
  • #49: Vermont (Dems control the legislature)
  • #50: New York (Dems control the legislature and governor’s office)
Also of note: all ten states went for Hillary Clinton in 2016 (with the exception of Maine’s second congressional district).
ALEC is a nonpartisan organization that advocates for the conservative principles “of limited government, free markets and federalism.”

Clinton Foundation 2014 tax return - WOW

These figures are from an official copy of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation for the tax year 2014.  HAVE YOU EVER, EVER, SEEN THIS INFORMATION ON CNN, ABC,
a
NBC OR MSNBC???  And...the brain dead Democrats are whining about Trump's tax returns!


 The foundation's tax return is from the National Center for Charitable Statistics website where you  can get the latest tax return on any charitable organization!

Total revenue (line 12) ...................$177,804,612.00
Total grants to charity (line 13) ...........$5,160,385.00 (that's less than 3%)
Total expenses of............................ .. $91,281,145.00 and those expenses include: salaries (line 15)....$34,838,106.00 !!!
Fund raising fees (line 16a) ..........$850,803.00
Other (?) expenses (line 17) .....$50,431,851.00
They list 486 employees (line 5)!

It took 486 people who are paid $34.8 million and $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1MILLION WHICH IS LESS THAN 3% OF TOTAL REVENUES!

Line 22 shows ending year net assets/fund balances of $332,471,349.00 which is up $85,171,891 from the previous year's tax return!

A CHARITY?

Part IX reflects some “interesting” expenses.  Travel of almost $8 million and meeting expense over $12 million.
Because the Deomocrats would find a way to start sending it money!!!.

The Brothel (A smile for the weekend.)

The madam opened the brothel door in Winnipeg and saw a rather dignified, well-dressed, good-looking man in his late forties or early fifties.

"May I help you sir?" she asked.
The man replied, "I want to see Cindy."

"Sir, Cindy is one of our most expensive ladies. Perhaps you would prefer someone else" , said the madam.

He replied, "No, I must see Cindy."
Just then, Cindy appeared and announced to the man she charged $5000 a visit.

Without hesitation, the man pulled out five thousand dollars and gave it to her, and they went upstairs. After an hour, the man calmly left.

The next night, the man appeared again, once more demanding to see Cindy.

Cindy explained that no one had ever come back two nights in a row as she was too expensive. "There are no discounts. The price is still $5000."

Again, the man pulled out the money, gave it to Cindy, and they went upstairs.  After an hour, he left.

The following night the man was there yet again. Everyone was astounded that he had come for a third consecutive night, but he paid her and they went upstairs.  After their session, Cindy said to the man,

"No one has ever been with me three nights in a row. Where are you from?"

The man replied, " New Brunswick ."

"Really," she said. "I have family in New Brunswick ."

"I know," the man said. "Your sister died, and I am her attorney. She asked me to give you your $15,000 inheritance."

The moral of this story is that three things in life are certain:

1. Death      2. Taxes     3. Being screwed by a lawyer

The Vicious Snake.

Don't mess with Ted Nugent. (Too good to delete!).....

 
Ted Nugent, rock star and avid bow hunter from Michigan , was being interviewed by a liberal journalist who also happens to be an animal rights activist.  The discussion came around to deer hunting. 

The journalist asked, "What do you think is the last thought in the head of a deer before  you shoot him?  Is it, 'Are you my friend?' or is it 'Are you the one who killed my brother?'"

Nugent replied, "Deer aren't capable of that kind of thinking.  All they care about is what am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. 
 
They are very much like the Democrats in Congress."

The interview ended.

Howabout a little math lesson to put things in perspective?

The next time you hear a politician use the Word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about  whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.     

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
 
A billion hours ago our ancestors were Living in the Stone Age.
      
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
  
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes ago
at the rate our government Is spending it.
 
While this thought is still fresh in our brain...let's take a look at New Orleans ....
It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
 
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu was asking Congress for
250 BILLION DOLLARS To rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...
What does it mean?
  
Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman and child    You would each get $516,528!
 Or... If you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
 Or... If you are a family of four..
Your family gets $2,066,012.
  
We spend 300 Billion a year on Illegal’s...!!!!  Check out the picture above...and under stand 

WE HAVE A SPECIAL REPORT ON THIS SUBJECT FROM ONE OF OUR POLITICAL BUDDIES.

Our politicians, not only casually toss around billions of dollars...but now the conversations are spiced with TRILLIONS!!  Our Columbine Contributor, Joe Rhodes is a skilled accountant and math whiz.(especially when writing down his golf score) so I asked him to give us a few figures using ONE Trillion dollars to get some more perspective.   Below is his reply:

"Hey Fred.  Off a precursory calculation, while having coffee and doing my puzzles
 Trillion years is before the Earth even existed!

13.7 billion years ago - The Big Bang beginning of the universe as we know it!
13.3 - 13.7 billion years ago - The Dark Ages, after the formation of hydrogen and before the first stars.
4.55 billion years ago - Formation of the Solar System.
4.5 billion years ago - Formation of the Moon.
4.45 billion years ago - Formation of Earth complete.
4 billion years ago - First life on Earth.
3 billion years ago - Formation of the first known continent.
1.3 billion years ago - First plants.

I did a study like this about 50 years ago, using a Billion rather than a Trillion.  Maybe I will get the bug and give you a more detailed synopsis. It's good to put my mind to work occasionally.

Hope all is well.
Joe
PS..Politicians try to convince the populace that they are making fiscal progress when they reduce the annual deficit, but any deficit adds to the total debt, and an annual surplus is required to attain any reduction in our total debt.  
 

In case you missed this.....(I did !)

Tesla will begin taking orders for its solar roof tiles next month, a product unveiled before the company's acquisition of SolarCity. Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed no new details on cost, but previously said the new roof tiles will cost less to manufacture and install than a traditional roof, even before savings from the power bill.   

Start your week with Ben...

They are bankrupt, a laughing stock, the businesses are deserting and they are a cesspool of criminals.  Why not???

But… California government says that the only places they can cut expenses is Police and Fire...
 
It doesn't matter if you are Democrat, Republican or Independent.

All of these people get salaries, medical coverage and pensions at our expense and almost all are unionized.
