Did Rod Rosenstein con the President?

Did Rod Rosenstein con the President

Many were surprised earlier this week when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein seemed to be cleared of wrongdoing… at least in the eyes of the President. He traveled with the President aboard Air Force One and whatever he said seemed to be enough to not only keep the President from firing him, but to get the President leaning towards his corner as other questions and accusations surfaced.

Rosenstein has been accused of offering to wear a wire to tape the President so he and members of the cabinet could invoke the 25th Amendment and have him removed from office. Rosenstein and others in the room at the time claim he was being sarcastic, but a pair of prominent figures claim he was dead serious.

He has been invited to testify on Capitol Hill as many lawmakers aren’t convinced by defense that he was joking. He has declined.

Trump ‘surprised’ Rosenstein won’t testify, after hearing his side of the ‘wire’ story

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-surprised-rosenstein-wont-testify-after-hearing-his-side-of-the-wire-story“I’m a little surprised that Rod wouldn’t do it,” Trump said during a lengthy interview on “Fox & Friends.”

The president was referring to the stalled negotiations to bring Rosenstein to Capitol Hill as early as Thursday to testify on the allegations. Those talks reached an impasse Wednesday, and some GOP lawmakers have even called for Rosenstein to be subpoenaed in response.

My Take

The President has been known to fall for convincing sale pitches and takes people at their word. This has been demonstrated in his hiring practices where people who sound good in an interview but turn out to be less than truthful about their past. There are several examples, but the most glaring is the case of E. J. Ridings.

He billed himself as a top executive at one of Wall Street’s most prestigious investment banks, an established leader in the mortgage industry, and a rising star with 15 years experience in the financial industry. Trump hired him to be President and CEO of Trump Mortgage.

As it turned out, Ridings had been at Dean Witter Reynolds for three months and was a registered broker for six days before quitting. He had no other verifiable experience in the industry before Trump tapped him to lead his mortgage company.

If Rosenstein sounded convincing and seemed credible to the President, it’s possible that the many who ordered the Robert Mueller investigation conned the President into thinking he was on his side. Then again, the people who are claiming Rosenstein was serious about wearing a wire, two “senior FBI officials” according to former FBI general counsel James A. Baker, were likely not allies of the President.

The President seems to trust him which is all that really matters. Then again, the President trusted Omarosa Manigalt, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Jeff Sessions, and many others who haven’t been very helpful.

Kristy Swanson, Dean Cain receive death threats over Strzok-Page ‘FBI Lovebirds’ production

Kristy Swanson Dean Cain receive death threats over Strzok-Page FBI Lovebirds production

Conservative actors Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain are receiving death threats over a planned stage performance based on the extra-marital texts sent between FBI cohorts Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The two members of federal law enforcement have been accused of conspiring with others during the 2016 election in an effort to prevent then-candidate Trump from winning as well as possibly taking him down if he were to win, which he did.

FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers,” will be directed by Phelim McAleer and is seeking an audience from the President himself. But shortly after buzz started building around the production, threats came in on Twitter.

Watching replies in their Twitter feeds, it’s clear the abuse continues even after offenders have been reported.

What makes it worse is that this is being framed by many in the media as a “pro-Trump” production. They are literally going on stage to read publicly available text messages verbatim. If the words of FBI agents texting each other is somehow considered to be “pro-Trump” by the media, then anything that isn’t blatantly pro-Democrats can be construed as pro-Trump.

The hardest thing in show business isn’t winning awards or getting good roles. The hardest thing in show business is being conservative and handling the relentless attacks from the unhinged. Stay the course, Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain.

New Mexico county commissioners, sheriffs demand immediate action on border emergency

New Mexico county commissioners sheriffs demand immediate action on border emergency

In a letter signed by County Commission Chairs and County Sheriffs across New Mexico, Republican House Leader Jim Townsend called for all of their lawmakers on Capitol Hill to render immediate relief and to work with President Trump to end the crisis at the southern border. They declared the situation had reached the stage of full emergency in the border state and American citizens were being harmed as a result of DC’s inaction.

We elected officials in our respective New Mexico counties hereby declare that we believe the southern border immigration crisis has reached the level of an emergency situation.

This emergency must e addressed and it must be addressed immediately. Our communities do not have the resources nor the budgets to handle the massive influx of immigrants we are experiencing and are expected to experience in the very near future. Our scarce resources are in danger of being rapidly depleted to the point that we will be unable to effectively care for our own citizens and our existing homeless population, many of whom are American veterans.

We, whom you represent, request that you put politics aside and support the President of the United States in his request for the supplemental funding necessary to effectively address this crisis and provide the New Mexicans you serve with the relief we so desperately need. We implore you to protect the border and proved processes that protect immigrants and/or asylum seekers crossing into the United States properly and legally.

It is with our constituent’s [sic] support and with their well-being in mind that we request you exercise your elected duty to the people whom you serve and act now in this emergency situation to overcome the politics in addressing this humanitarian crisis with no further delay. Please work with the President to give relief and security to both New Mexicans and the immigrants entering through our southern border.

The letter was retweeted by the official White House account.

Opinion

The letter is much kinder than I would have worded it considering the untenable attempts to subvert the truth by Democrats and mainstream media. They pretend like there’s not a real problem to appease their base on the coasts. Meanwhile, American citizens and migrants alike are suffering horribly as a result of Capitol Hill’s unwillingness to act.

Until the American people acknowledge this emergency and demand the Democrats cease their indefensible stance on the crisis, they’ll continue to delay and distract as long as possible. One might argue this is their attempt to normalize illegal immigration just long enough until they can regain the White House and set us down a path of full-blown open borders.

This isn’t an immigration crisis. It’s an illegal immigration crisis.

This isn’t about bigotry. It’s about the reality of the situation.

We, as conservatives, must regain our footing on this issue. The left wants to portray this as somehow racist when in reality it’s all about our sovereignty and making sure we’re defending our borders from literal invaders. No other country is as generous to those whose first interaction with our country is to break the law by crossing the border away from designated ports of entry. Yet the Democrats continue to paint this as an issue regarding race.

We either have a country or we don’t. We need immigrants. We need those who come into the country legally, not the masses who intend to file for asylum so they can be released to the interior for a time. The truth of this situation is such that if we had an honest media, the vast majority of Americans would be allowed to recognize the truth based solely on the facts alone. But we don’t have an honest media. We have a media that has a progressive agenda and they’re willing to defend that agenda to the detriment of the nation.

Quote

“We must protect our borders now!” – Jim Townsend

Final Thoughts

New Mexico is ground zero of the migrant crisis. While citizens and migrants suffer, both the whole of the Democratic Party and most of mainstream media continues to stick their heads in the sand. This has reached the point of lunacy.

President gives AG Barr unilateral authority to declassify 2016 campaign spying documents

President gives AG Barr unilateral authority to declassify 2016 campaign spying documents

The investigation into the investigators is now in full swing as President Trump signed an order for U.S. intelligence organizations to quickly and fully cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s multiple investigations into spying that took place against the Trump campaign during the 2016 elections.

In a statement by the White House, the President also noted that Barr would have unilateral authority to declassify documents related to his investigations.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.”

Final Thoughts

If this is handled properly, and there’s no reason to believe it won’t be, the President will have ammunition to use against Democrats while they continue to try to collect their own. It bodes ill for the nation that Democrats continue to press investigation after investigation, but this can act to counterbalance their narrative.

Meanwhile, Congress is unable to get anything done while the left continues to do focus solely on taking down the President and winning the White House.

The positive in all this is we may finally get to see the depths of the conspiracy against the Trump campaign and how our elected officials as well as law enforcement and intelligence agencies tried to defy the will of the people.
