Assange meets U.S. congressman, vows to prove Russia did not leak him documents – The Hill

Bravo to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican congressman from California.  Although The Hill couldn’t resist taking a cheap shot:

“Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican who is friendly to Russia and chairs an important House subcommittee on Eurasia policy…”

I’m shaking my head, laughing as I read this.  You can’t make this shit up.

Regardless, it’s extremely encouraging to see a member of our government actually engaging with WikiLeaks.  If you’re a politician in this country and you view WikiLeaks as an enemy, you’ve got something to hide.

Another interesting tidbit:

Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC emails during last year’s presidential election,” Rohrabacher said, “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.
Pressed for more detail on the source of the documents, Rohrabacher said he had information to share privately with President Donald Trump.

“Julian also indicated that he is open to further discussions regarding specific information about the DNC email incident that is currently unknown to the public,” he added.

While everyone was getting psyched for the civil war (part deux)…

…in the staredown between Trump and Fatty Boom Boom (Kim Jong In), Fatty Boom Boom blinked.

North Korea tensions ease as Kim Jong-un backs down on missile threat – Evening Standard

The tense stand-off between North Korea and the United States eased today as Kim Jong-un appeared to back off over his threat to target missiles at waters near Guam.

But the rogue regime’s leader warned he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions”.

Pyongyang’s state media reported that while Kim had decided against firing four missiles at the US territory in the Pacific Ocean for now, the launch could still happen at any time.

It would, said Kim, be a “most delightful historic moment” and “wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks”.

The big talk is a fundamental part of North Korean leadership, and to an extent, relations with Asian countries in general.  But this kind of bluster is far less dangerous than an explicit thread to nuke Guam.  Another foreign policy win for Trump that will be ignored.

While everyone was getting psyched for the civil war…

The Atlanta branch of the Federal Reserve announced that they’re predicting 3.7% GDP for the third quarter of this year.

We never hit 3% under Barack Obama, but of course, that was intended.

Trump Factor: Federal Reserve of Atlanta Predicts Massive 3.7% GDP for Third Quarter – Gateway Pundit

Trump has been quietly dismantling hundreds of regulations enacted during President Fuckhead’s two terms.  Regulations cost money and jobs.  There’s no free lunch.

Justice Turns Up the Heat on Hillary – NewsMax

Donald Trump’s troubles dealing with the fallout from the racial violence in Charlottesville, Va., may pale by comparison to the grief that is in store for his presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Last week, I reported in “Ed Klein Confidential” that the Justice Department has reopened the investigation of Hillary’s mishandling of classified material on her private email system while she was secretary of state, and is considering offering her a plea bargain if she’ll agree to plead guilty to charges of breaking the law.

Since then, I’ve learned that the prosecutors at Justice also are planning to expand their investigation beyond Hillary’s emails to include the Clinton Foundation’s finances and Hillary’s pay to play relationships with foreign businessmen and governments.

When Trump first won the election, I was of the opinion that he should break his campaign promise and not seek to prosecute her for her many, many crimes, the worst of which are not public knowledge.

But as all of you have seen in the past 7 months, the Deep State and the politicians it controls will not allow him to govern, the positive of which has been cementing his authenticity as a real, genuine President.  While Trump has been spectacularly effective at repairing the damage of the last sixteen years while under siege (not that the FNM reports on any of those accomplishments), this is not a tenable situation long term.

The only way to deal with this siege is to start taking heads.  High profile criminals must be put in jail to send the cockroaches scurrying.  Doesn’t matter if they’re Democrat or Republican, only that they’re part of the establishment trying to take down the President.  But Clinton would be a hell of a way to start.

Mr. President, you must start putting people in jail.

Think you’re smarter than Bill Binney?

The Trump/Russia hysteria is dying out, as evidenced by the Left’s pivot to a new meme: Trump and all of his supporters are Nazis.  But just to stamp out the dying fire a bit more, I wanted to post a recent interview with ex-NSA chief turned whistleblower, Bill Binney.  Binney is a bonafide genius and if you disagree with him on this, well then good luck to you.

UPDATE:  Even Salon (of all outlets) is starting to question the validity of the hysteria.

Sorry…

…for the slowdown in posts.  I’m honestly a bit overwhelmed and dismayed to the point of avoiding politics at the moment.  The country has lost it’s goddamn mind over an event so contrived, even I didn’t think it could fool the Lefties.

It’s a full court press, corporations, media, pundits, never Trumpers within the Republican party and Liberals are gobbling it up.  I’ve tried having rational discussions with a number of them on forums and they basically just shout “Trump is a racist” at increasing volume.  No proof, not evidence, no examples.  He didn’t say exactly what they wanted to hear at the exact right time.  So now they don’t have to engage intellectually, because Trump is the bad man.

We’re fucked.  The Left has shut down, what little dialogue is gone.  Basically it’s time to just chill out before civil war starts.
