American who met a young woman on line and went to Venezuela to marry her was arrested on bogus charges and locked up during Obama’s watch.

Released and will met the president in the White House. No doubt all the credit in the MSM will be to the dictator of Venezuela, if they mention it at all.

How bad it is in Venezuela:

Vanity Fair hates Trump, we know that.

They have decided devoting 100 percent of their time complaining about him, sucks all the air out of the room, leaving the Dems with no message.

So they came up with one. Trump is raising gas prices. The Dems are demanding lower gas prices.

But lower gas prices leads to more driving, big SUV’s and more global warming, oh my.

They should boycott and refuse to buy gas if it costs more than $2 at the pump. For as long as it takes.

Newly revealed e-mails show that former Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) deputy director Andrew McCabe was keenly aware of CNN’s internal understanding of a secret briefing about the infamous Steele dossier, days before CNN published any stories on the matter. The e-mails, which were obtained by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), also reveal that top officials used coded language to refer to the salacious and unverified allegations made by Steele.
I hate this, because I used to have such respect for the Security Branch of the DNC (AKA “FBI”). But I’m afraid that it has become entirely a political machine, used by the left to target opposition candidates. Whatever honest agents are left, who are still working on the various kinds of criminal investigations that are ACTUALLY part of agency’s mandate, must be feeling pretty much betrayed and left out in the cold by the filthy animals that pass themselves off as FBI leadership.
TAM, don't be discouraged by innuendo or conjecture from congress. Mueller has all the info and is making impressive progress. If FBI or DOJ is off base in any way his report will show it. It really makes no sense for congressional committees to be doing any intelligence investigations.

I total disagree with the congress not investigating intelligence matters. I no longer trust the FBI or the DOJ. I believe checks and balances are warranted.

Everything (and everywhere) is politics. At least congressional review is public or semi-public. Everything within FBI and DOJ is a black box and there is no telling what strings were pulled or leads were ignored to get a certain result.....

Congress has constitutional oversight powers, and traditionally, the various committees which provide oversight to agencies like the IRS, the FBI, and the CIA recieve cooperation from those agencies in matters of oversight. The reasons the committees receive that cooperation are twofold:
  1. those agencies are mandated by law to cooperate; and
  2. Congress controls the pursestrings to their budgets, and has the power to “punish” said agencies for refusing to cooperate.
To the extent that any federal agency refuses to cooperate with the congressional committee charged with that agency’s oversight in specific matters, they are operating outside of the law.

Under Obama, the FBI stonewalled a congressional committee requests for information relevant to investigations by that committee into the Clinton email scandal. Under Obama, the IRS stonewalled committee requests relevant to a congressional committee’s investigation into abuse of power over non-profit applications by conservative political groups. Under Obama, the DOJ stonewalled congressional committee investigations into criminal malfeasance by both ATF and FBI in the Fast & Furious matter of illegal gun-running. Etc., etc., etc.

Under 8 years of Obama, federal agencies have learned that the law no longer applies to them - even when the current POTUS or Congress tries to force compliance. How is that not a coup?

Ivanka photo posted with her hugging her son slammed by left as govt has lost 1500 children refugees who showed up at the border were found homes and have disappeared since then. Probably some lied about there age. Some sold into slavery. All Trump’s fault encouraged them to come.

North Korea back on back off back on.

Rudy Guillani booed at Yankee stadium on his birthday by NY fans.

Roseanne cancelled by ABC after tweet.

Trump tweeted Muellar influencing November election colluding with the Dems.

Sure, but I'm really referring to the congressional committees that are trying do a part of what Mueller is already doing anyway. Mueller has the resources, expertise, time, integrity, and a nonpartisan mission to investigate foreign election influence, campaign collusion, obstruction of justice, and anything resulting from investigating those topics. I'm sure it's nigh impossible for everyone on a team to be completely unbiased in any governmental endeavor but correct results can still be had even with personal biases.

You have more faith in Mueller’s integrity than I do. I think he’s a political animal, and the reason that his “investigation” has lasted as long as it has, and the reason that its direction has strayed FAR afield of his original mandate is because he’s on a fishing expedition, and has set himself up above any accountability to anybody .......and that lack of accountability in gov’t anywhere is distinctly un-American. Mueller is a willing tool of the DNC to overturn a lawful election result.

In any other terms, that is called a coup.

Mueller is dirty. He is part of the Deep State. He has financial ties to Soros, Obama and the Clintons. He is admired by Dale almost as much as he is lauded by Eric Holder. Give me a break, please.

Mueller seems to have widespread respect and support in congress, including the Republican leaders of House and Senate. The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill on a bipartisan basis that protects Mueller from inappropriate termination.

Political animal? Nope, he is well known for keeping a low profile.

Well, there is the favorite of most trolls, Wikipedia :banghead: , and then there is the judgment of an actual sitting member of the Texas Congressional delegation:

Dale, the fact that you just keep repeating lies about how much integrity Mueller allegedly has reminds me of the old communist tactic: "repeat a lie enough times and it becomes the truth".
