Russia!  Not.

Now we have former Obama trooper Jeh Johnson testifying, and all it did was to make the Dems look even worse. 

Of course Putin tried to influence our election.  But he failed.  According to Johnson, Russia failed to alter "ballots, ballot counts or reporting of election results."  There goes one huge Dem screaming point.

But then Johnson, either accidentally or deliberately, let it slip that Obama and the Dems knew for months before the election that Russia was trying to play games, yet did nothing about it.  According to Johnson:  "The FBI and the DNC had been in contact with each other months before about the intrusion, and the DNC did not feel it needed DHS’s assistance at that time."

We're investigating the wrong people.

More schadenfreude. Losing presidential candidates always gain in approval rate after the election. Except for Hillary. Her favorability rating was already in negative territory before the election, and went DOWN after she lost, and is stuck at 41%. I guess she isn't quite the darling that the lefties try to portray her to be.

There's a difference between 'influence' and 'interfere' Nothing new with Governments influencing elections.
Although we ALL influence, Not even the Russians would attempt to interfere.

Grandma "McBotoxFace" says she's "worth the trouble." I can think of a few women "who are worth the trouble."

1). Kate Upton
2). Jennifer Lawrence
3). Eva Mendes
4). Ambrosio
5). Hanna Jeter

If I have time maybe Fat Hilda and Nance make this list when it expands to 'Hot Women Worth The Trouble' at a trillion or more...

Obama should have notified the 50 Secretaries of State of the Russian attempts to hack election roles. They are the ones who needed the information.

"Democrats, FBI Collaborated on Trump Smear"

Well well. This news from the NY Post, Drudge and other blogs. It's clear the Russian dossier that started all this 'Trump-Russian collusion' was bullshit. The sickening problem is what was the FBI doing giving Fusion GPS the firm contracted by dems to smear Trump $50,000 last August? The FBI is stonewalling the Senate on details for the reason for the payment. When you have the DOJ and FBI so politicized that they're in the business of picking Presidents we're screwed.

Many people have said the worst thing about "Former President Shit Show" is how he politicized the DOJ, FBI and IRS as political arms of the Democrat party..Obama is a truly horrible man...

"Mr. "Man of the People" is ripping off banks to enrich himself.."

As always, Metropolitan St. Louis's Dumbest Sh*! is wrong, or can't read.

No one's alleging Bernie Sanders ripped off a bank to enrich himself. No one, except one Perpetually Wrong Missouri Loudmouth. The chair of Donald Trump's Vermont campaign filed a complaint alleging Sanders' wife misrepresented the collateral she had for purchasing land for ....her employer. I guess we'll find out whether it's true. My guess: NOT.

King of the Dumbasses swings and whiffs again. Or, in other words, "Monday."

This Youtube recording of a top Democrat in Nebraska needs no additional comment. It speaks for itself.

June 26, 2017 at 09:47 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Jane Sanders misrepresented potential donations in order to get a loan to expand a college campus. Lying to get a loan is usually referred to as fraud. Her actions bankrupted the Burlington College.

What a tangled web she weaves, when first Jane Sanders practices to deceive.

June 26, 2017 at 10:01 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Thanks for the link, Duff, man. It pretty well corroborates what I said and confirms Tom doesn't have the faintest idea what he's talking about.

The story supplies a lot of details, saying there's quite a bit of evidence that feds are investigating how Jane Sanders characterized certain promises to get collateral for a loan to her employer.

Did Mrs. Sanders misrepresent potential donations in order to get that loan? That is the issue apparently being investigated. (She's not been *charged* with anything, much less convicted, although, yes, IF she lied to get a loan that would be fraud.)

I don't see any evidence whatsoever "her actions bankrupted" the college, could you supply some please?

I don't see any evidence whatsoever she enriched herself personally, could you supply some please?

If all this is true--if Jane Sanders mischaracterized collateral to get a loan so her employer could buy some land--I'm still baffled at how anyone gets from that (yes, it would be fraud) to "her husband enriched himself by ripping off banks." That's just asinine. I don't see a shred of evidence Jane Sanders enriched herself, much less her husband.

I guess when you're still competing to remain World's Wrongest Man making Bernie Sanders out to be a bank robber is a good opening gambit.

"Burlington College to close under weight of debt'

It's fu*king mystery to DF........

Yeah I SUPPOSE Janie could of got that $10 mi loan without Bernie knowing about it. Maybe he was too engrossed in writing his latest rape-murder fantasy novel.

DF; two ways to rob a bank:

1). Come in with a note and gun.

2). Lie on a loan that defrauds the bank of the money.

Keep up........

Nepotism for chaser? Apparently, Winston, Jane Sanders were using the Clinton Method of Family Business Management.

You don't have the faintest idea what nepotism is, do you, Duff?

June 26, 2017 at 11:31 | Registered CommenterWinston

As Tom mentioned, the big news today (eclipsed only by the sheer noise of Winston's irrational defense of Bernie and Jane) is that SCOTUS is allowing most of the Trump travel ban to take effect. Full review in the fall.

ACLU, CAIR, and assorted flea-infested leftie groups are in full meltdown mode. Good.

The Most Enormous Loudmouth Dumbf&&& in the Metropolitan St. Louis Area RETURNS to smearing college president's husband as bank robber, having acknowledged that how debt works eludes his negligible powers of comprehension.

Meanwhile Duff attempts the audacious dumbassery of a Trumpster whining about nepotism, but FAILS BIGLY because he hasn't the faintest idea what nepotism consists of.

Winston is possibly just lashing out because I recently pointed out the intense hatred and condescension in everything he writes. Winston being Winston.

June 26, 2017 at 12:39 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Poor Winifred. Apparently, when hope for an open-borders socialist paradise is lost, the result is a steep rise in shrillness and anger. I'm sure there are professional services to help him deal with this crisis, but first he must admit that he needs help. And judging by past experience, there's not much chance of Winifred becoming self-aware. Nor, for that matter, admitting that he hasn't the ability to use a dictionary correctly.

June 26, 2017 at 13:00 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Nothing could be more uproariously hilarious than pious lectures from Trump partisans on allegations of nepotism, as sourced to bizarre wingnut propaganda outlets. Alex Jones too busy?

Thanks. i needed a few belly lauighs today!

June 26, 2017 at 13:06 | Registered CommenterWinston

Per Winston, our resident broomstick-up-ass schoolmarm, always first to savagely criticize the form of other people's posts:

"i needed a few belly lauighs today!"

I guess the irrational shaking rage took over, and made him careless. Counseling needed. Maybe a pill.

June 26, 2017 at 13:16 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Another gem from Winston the Obtuse:

"...deciding whether the Constitution is still good for anything besides toilet paper..."

Perhaps Winston would care to point out which article of the Constitution calls for allowing immigration from countries rife with death-to-America terrorism. I've looked, and so far I haven't found any such wording. In fact, Article I, Section 8, gives Congress the power to regulate immigration and naturalization. Maybe Winnie didn't read that far. In that vein, there is black letter law in the Immigration and Nationality Act, which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate."

Dammit HuffPO you stop it... Why ## sniff, sniff ##, **tear, tear** Bernie and Jane are good people and you quit smearing them....

June 26, 2017 at 14:01 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Hahahahahaha! Irrational shaking laughter is more like it....

As Consta Toosh Anal Skoller has many times himself pointed out, the Constitution doesn't "allow" things, it creates a structure of checks and balances. Maybe The Anal Skoller can state exactly where the Ninth Circuit went astray in concluding the President's Executive Order exceeded the scope of the authority Congress delegated to him, and that
"(I)mmigration, even for the President, is not a one-person show," or where the Fourth Circuiit was wrong in concluding the EO violated the First Amendment's ban on government establishment of religion.

Or maybe he's just a bag of foul and noxious hot air.

I'm inclined to think the latter.

But hey' for comedy value keep posting "Deep Legal Thoughts From the 9th Court of Appeals"

June 26, 2017 at 14:54 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Hooboy. For a supposedly educated man, Winnie is a total ignoramus about the Constitution, probably due to his severe reading comprehension deficit. It's all there, in the Constitution and in the immigration law, in black and white, and not really all that difficult for most of us to understand. But out there on the fringes of LeftieLand, words don't mean what they mean. Or something.

As for the 9th Circus, Thomas Sowell nailed it by suggesting that at the rate they're going, they would soon declare the Constitution to be unconstitutional.

"In fact, Article I, Section 8, gives Congress the power to regulate immigration and naturalization. Maybe Winnie didn't read that far."

If we didn't know better from his Endowed Chair of Judicial and Jurisprudential Dumbassery we might imagine that Anal Skoller actually does not understand the distinction between the President and the Congress.

However that cannot possibly be the case for his Consta Toosh Anal Skollerness is a marvel to behold and impresses us all. All Marvel at CTAS's massive impressive endowment! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

June 27, 2017 at 06:23 | Registered CommenterWinston

Poor, poor Winifred. Still can't read nor comprehend the two pertinent bits of law quoted to him, the one in the Constitution granting Congress the power to control immigration and naturalization, and the law Congress passed under that constitutional power that gives the president the authority to put a travel ban in place.

There are really only two possibilities. Either Winnie is truly an incompetent imbecile, or he's spinning desperately, slinging spittle as he goes, trying to bluster his way through what he very well knows is an indefensible position based upon falsehoods. Neither possibility reflects well on him.

Ah, the delightful lefties at the LA Times are at it again. They're reporting that three CNN "news" people have resigned over a withdrawn story about Trump and Anthony Scaramucci. The Times headline gives the impression that the three must have resigned in a huff over their sterling work being questioned, when in fact they were canned for putting out another fabricated story that CNN was forced to scrub.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch in Ohio, Kasich's 'expansion of Medicaid' has run a $138M deficit. An MCO tax was rejected by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services meaning hundreds of thousands could be removed from the role. Federal Gap payments are scheduled to end and the state has no way to bridge the gap.
