Ohhh…, hello FISA court!  Where ya’ been?

According to Fox News, “FISA court slams FBI over surveillance applications, in rare public order.”

Ohhhh my gosh!  The FISA court “slammed” the FBI soooo hard.

I don’t know if they’ll ever recover!

afisa 11

“In a rare public order Tuesday, the chief judge [Who is the Chief FISA Judge by the way…, and why are these people never identified? I’ll identify these individuals a little later in the article.] of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISA court] strongly criticized the FBI over its surveillance-application process, giving the bureau until Jan. 10 to come up with solutions, in the wake of findings from Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.”

Ohhh…, the FISA Court “strongly criticized” the FBI?

What exactly makes “strong criticism” different from normal criticism?

Do they shake a finger at you while criticizing you?

Do they raise their voices while criticizing you?

Ya…, when I get a speeding ticket or I accidentally blow through a stop sign, that’s what the judge usually asks me…, “What solutions are you going to come up with to make sure this doesn’t happen again?”

afisa 9

“What is the future of the FBI following the revealing IG report on FISA applications?”

afisa 5

What is the future of the FISA Court for that matter?

afisa 7

afisa 8

afisa 6

And why has it taken so long for the FISA Court to address this whole matter of the FBI breaking the law (on numerous occasions) regarding the FISA process?

Especially considering that Congressman Devin Nunes sent two official letters to the FISA COURT, beginning over a year ago, alerting them to these exact circumstances!

afisa 3

It would be my contention that the FISA Court cannot be that blind or that stupid…, which means they must have been a willing part of the deep state’s coup attempt!

And the reason they’ve now, finally, decided to open their mouths is because they were literally forced to, based on the evidence we now have.

afisa 4

So who are these FISA Court pillars of justice?:

Rosemary M. Collyer, District of Columbia /D.C. Presiding Chief Judge: May 19, 2016-Dec. 31, 2019

afisa 2

James E. Boasberg, District of Columbia / D.C. Presiding Chief Judge: effective Jan. 1, 2020

Rudolph Contreras, District of Columbia / D.C.

Anne C. Conway, Middle District of Florida

Louis Guirola, Jr., Southern District of Mississippi

James P. Jones, Western District of Virginia

Robert B. Kugler, District of New Jersey

Michael W. Mosman, District of Oregon

Thomas B. Russell, Western District of Kentucky

George Z. Singal, District of Maine

John J. Tharp, Jr., Northern District of Illinois

 

Judges Collyer, Boasberg and Contreras, are the ones who I especially would like to hear from.

Perhaps John Durham, the Justice Department’s “investigator of the investigators” will eventually hold these co-conspirators’ feet to the fire.

We’ll see.

Only if there is any justice left in our world.

Comey, Comey, Comey, Comey, Comey Chameleon, You come and go, you come and go-o-o-o.

acomey 2

Ahhhh, Mr. James Comey…, the FORMER FBI director…, the FBI director who was FIRED by President Trump.

acomey 12

It’s funny how a little evidence can totally change your tune, isn’t it Mr. Comey?

This the same James Comey who basically called President Trump a liar.

This is the same James Comey who repeatedly declared that neither he nor any of HIS people at the FBI did ANYTHING wrong regarding their usage of the FISA process or their treatment of President Trump.

Now, according to Business Insider, Comey says, “He [Inspector General Michael Horowitz] was right, I was wrong [regarding defending the FBI’s use of the FISA surveillance process].”

“Former FBI Director James Comey on Sunday said he was wrong to defend the bureau’s [the FBI’s] use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act process when applying for a warrant to surveil Carter Page, a foreign-policy aide on the 2016 Trump campaign.”

Oh…, it’s “the bureau’s use” now?

You were the Director of the FBI at the time Mr. Comey, and YOU signed off on the FISA application!

“His statements marked a reversal from last week, when he said a Justice Department inspector general’s report on the origins of the Russia investigation exonerated the FBI of wrongdoing.”

“In fact, the report revealed that there were 17 ‘significant errors and omissions’ in the FISA applications involving Page.”

That’s all?!

Only SEVENTEEN errors and omissions?!

That sounds like we’re taking ineptness, stupidity and/or disingenuousness to a new level!

Or…, these “omissions and “errors” were intentional.

Which do you think is more likely?

‘“He was right, I was wrong,’ Comey told the Fox News host Chris Wallace, referring to the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, who wrote the report. ‘I was overconfident, as director, in our procedures.’”

acomey 8

Please allow MrEricksonRules to translate what exactly Mr. Comey is saying here in the language of the liberal, deep state, turds.

What he means is he was overconfident at the time that he could get away with doing whatever he wanted because he was confident that no one would ever be the wiser.

But President Trump messed all of that up by winning the election!

In my estimation, you are a long, long way away from just being “wrong.”

You, Mr. Comey, are a treasonous criminal, whom I am sure will get nowhere near the level of punishment he deserves.

acomey 4

‘“These errors and omissions resulted from case agents providing wrong or incomplete information’ to the Justice Department National Security Division’s Office of Intelligence and ‘failing to flag important issues for discussion,’ the report said.”

And these “errors and omissions” or just “providing wrong or incomplete information” were allowed to be shabbily submitted in an application having to do with a presidential candidate, his campaign, and later a president?

That’s taking professionalism and obeyance of the law to a new low as well.

“Horowitz also found that an FBI employee no longer working at the bureau doctored an email to make it appear as if Page wasn’t a source for another government agency. Had the FISA court been aware of this, it might have been exculpatory for Page [in Page’s favor].”

This is most certainly a crime…, and I don’t care if this person is no longer working at the FBI or not, I DEMAND that charges be leveled against this person and anyone else who was aware of this.

“Testifying before Congress last week, the inspector general didn’t mince words, saying there were ‘significant, serious failures’ on the FBI’s part when applying for the warrant to surveil [Carter] Page.”

“Asked whether his report vindicated Comey, Horowitz replied, ‘It doesn’t vindicate anyone at the FBI who touched this, including the leadership.’”

“Comey on [a recent] Sunday [show] downplayed the role of the so-called Steele dossier in the FBI’s obtaining a FISA warrant to monitor Page. The Steele dossier is an explosive collection of memos alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. The information in it is still largely unverified.”

acomey 5

acomey 11

Not only is it largely “unverified,” it is largely accepted to not be worth the paper it’s printed on.  In fact, less.

“Comey said the dossier was ‘not a huge part of the presentation to the court,’ though he acknowledged that ‘it was the one that convinced the lawyers to move forward.’”

‘“We determined that the ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ team’s receipt of Steele’s election reporting on September 19, 2016 played a central and essential role in the FBI’s and the Department’s decision to seek the FISA order,’ the report said. ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ was the FBI’s code name for the Russia investigation.”

acomey 10

“Horowitz found that one portion of the first FISA application alleging possible coordination between Page the Russians on the 2016 campaign ‘relied entirely on’ information from the Steele dossier.”

This is completely the opposite of what Mr. Comey contended.

“Comey on Sunday said he hadn’t misrepresented the relevance of the Steele dossier in the Page FISA application process, but he added that ‘if I was, then I’m sorry that I did that.’”

I have been sorry when I’ve been caught speeding a couple of times, but that didn’t stop me from getting a ticket.

You didn’t “misrepresent” anything Mr. Comey…, you straight out lied.

acomey 3

Shame on you, James Comey.

I really hope you and your treasonous co-conspirators get what’s coming to you.

acomey 13

President Trump’s accomplishments…, America’s best kept secrets!

If you haven’t tuned into FOX for the news from time to time, or watched/listened to a Trump rally…, you may not be aware of any or many of President Trump’s accomplishments for our country.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is not prone to give President Trump credit for accomplishing anything, or airing anything that might be construed as positive in nature.

In case you haven’t heard…, President Trump’s list of accomplishments, so far, is long and historic in nature.

Here we go!

aacomms 5

7 million new jobs have been created since President Trump was elected.

An all-time record of more than 158.5 million Americans are employed.

There are 10,000 more factories in America today than on Election Day in 2016.

The unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The unemployment rate for disabled Americans is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The youth unemployment rate has reached the lowest rate in nearly 50 years.

Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

African-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

Asian-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

Women’s unemployment is at the lowest rate in over 65 years.

Income per household has increased $5,205 since 2017 and is still growing.

Average wages have been on the rise for the first time in over 20 years and are still on the rise.

The U.S. is now the largest producer of oil and natural gas, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia. We are a net exporter of energy for the first time since 1957.

Established 8,764 “Opportunity Zones” to promote new jobs in low-income communities.

Poverty rates for African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans have reached new all-time lows.

aacomms 2

In addition to all of these historically accomplishments, the President has:

Donated all of his quarterly salaries to different departments within our government,

Seen all-time highs in the stock markets on his watch,

Lowered personal and corporate tax rates,

Seen over 7 million people come off the food stamp program,

Signed the “Right to Fire” VA bill, which has seen 500 incompetent employees fired, 200 suspended, and 33 demoted,

Signed the VA “Choice” law, which allows veterans access to private medical care if their VA care is unresponsive or inadequate,

Renegotiated unfair trade deals with China, Canada, Mexico, Japan and South Korea,

Rebuilt our military,

Established the creation of the U.S. Space force, a new sixth military branch of the armed forces,

Signed the Criminal Justice reform Bill, which reforms the system by reforming sentencing for a wide range of first-time misdemeanors or by eliminating incarceration time. It also got rid of mandatory minimum sentences for felony drug offenses.

Signed the “Right to Try” law giving critically ill patients access to potentially life-saving cures,

Been the first U.S. President to meet with a leader of North Korea, and the first President to actually step foot in North Korea.

Removed thousands upon thousands of business and progress strangling federal regulations.

And I’m sure there more that I failed to mention.

Perhaps the most underappreciated and under-reported accomplishment is the end of our dependence on Middle Eastern oil.  This is a game changer regarding national security, our economy, and our foreign policy capabilities.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

aacomms 6

My point is…, there has been no other president in our nation’s history who can produce a list of accomplishments (in only his first three years no less) that even comes close to that of President Trump.

Promises made…, promises kept…, PLUS!

WINNING!

For “The Deep State,” an apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!” 

Yes…, for “The Deep State,” democrats and liberals in general, a disingenuous apology seems to be a “get out of jail free card!”

adoj 1

At least in their eyes, the eyes of their “Deep State” comrades, and the eyes of their propagandistic fake news media conspirators.

An apology, of course, is only begrudgingly performed when the evidence against the “swamp rat” in question is SO overwhelming that the preferred strategy of lying, denying and pleading ignorance cannot be employed.

Republicans, conservatives, and all the rest of the law-abiding peons, however, are expected to operate under the laws as they were written, and receive punishment accordingly.

adoj 2

Case in point…, an article by Ronn Blitzer of Fox News, titled, “DOJ recommends maximum sentence for former GOP Representative.”

You will NEVER see or hear the words “DOJ recommends maximum sentence” before any liberal bureaucrat’s name or any liberal politician’s name.

In this case, ‘“The Government believes that a sentence at the top end of the Guidelines range is necessary in order to satisfy the objectives of Title 18 United States Code, Section 3553(a), and in particular to promote respect for the law, to provide just punishment for the offense, and to achieve general deterrence,’ prosecutors with the Southern District of New York said in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Vernon S. Broderick.”

So in other words, they’re saying that there are cases where you don’t need to “promote respect for the law,” “provide just punishment,” and “achieve general deterrence?”

It seems like that’s what they’re saying.

adoj 8

And in fact, we’ve seen many cases where our “justice” system IS NOT promoting respect for the law, IS NOT providing just punishment, and IS NOT achieving general deterrence…, especially where liberal bureaucrats and liberal politicians are concerned.

Do the names Lois Lerner, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, James Clapper, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey ring a bell?

adoj 7

adoj 9

adoj 6

Another such case is the case of Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, a former top Treasury Department official.

When someone is using three last names, that’s a good tip-off that we are dealing with someone who is extra pathetically liberal.

adoj 5

According to Gregg Re of Fox News, “A former top Treasury Department official pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy for leaking confidential banking reports associated with members of the Trump campaign, following her dramatic arrest in October 2018 as she toted a flash drive full of sensitive documents.”

“Natalie Edwards, 41, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court, where U.S. District Judge Gregory H. Woods set sentencing for June 9. Although the conspiracy charge carried a potential penalty of up to five years in prison, Edwards signed a plea deal with prosecutors that recommended a potential prison sentence of zero to six months.”

A plea deal you say?

What exactly is she pleaing?

She doesn’t seem to have much leverage here.

She must be pleaing that her special liberal privilege be recognized.

“Edwards was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, also known as FinCEN. Prosecutors said her crime began in October 2017 and continued for a year, with Edwards sending a BuzzFeed News reporter numerous Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”).

Oh…, she was a senior adviser at Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network!

Beautiful!

She should be held to an even higher standard here then.

“As law enforcement swooped in, she was carrying a government-issued USB flash drive containing not only thousands of SARs, but also ‘highly sensitive material relating to Russia, Iran, and the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,’ prosecutors said.”

Am I just stupid or does this seem like a pretty serious crime?

‘“I am sorry for what I have done and I apologize to you, your honor, and the court,’ Edwards said.”

THERE IT IS!

She played her “get out of jail free card” apology!

Also notice she’s apologizing to the judge and the court and not to the victims of her crime, her department, or the American people.

“Her arrest came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which had pledged to go on the offensive against leakers whom the president has called ‘traitors and cowards.’”

Exactly, Mr. President.  I would classify her as a coward and a traitor as well.

Traitors should not receive bogus plea deals.

In another case, we have the F.B.I. (Director, Christopher Wray) apologizing to the Court for “botching surveillance of a Trump adviser,” and “pledging to fix their [the F.B.I.’s] procedures.”

According to Charlie Savage of The New York Times, “The F.B.I. acknowledged serious errors and omissions in the facts it put forward for wiretap applications targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“[The] F.B.I. told a secretive court on Friday that it was increasing training and oversight for officials who work on national security wiretap applications in response to problems uncovered by a scathing inspector general report last month about botched surveillance targeting a former Trump campaign adviser.”

“A secretive court?”

What exactly is a “secretive court?”

I’m guessing “secretive” means “rigged” in this instance.

‘“The F.B.I. has the utmost respect for this court and deeply regrets the errors and omission identified by’ the inspector general, wrote the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, in a statement included with the filing. He called the conduct described by the report “unacceptable and unrepresentative of the F.B.I. as an institution.’”

Senate FBI Director

I’m sure you are very appreciative of this liberal leaning court, rigged in your favor, Mr. Wray…, and Oh…, THERE IT IS…, he played their “get out of jail free card” apology!

Excuse me Mr. Wray…, but you are so full of sh#t I can smell you a million miles away.

Believe me my friends…, these “Deep Staters” have no respect for their employer, the American people, and they think we are all idiots who will continue to keep falling for this crap.

Well…, it’s a new day Mr. Wray.

Our eyes are wide open now, and we recognize you people for what you are…, enemies of our country, and enemies of “We The People.”

“Under FISA — a law for surveillance aimed at monitoring suspected spies and terrorists, as opposed to ordinary criminals — the government must convince a judge that an American is probably an agent of a foreign power. Because the FISA court hears only from the government, and what it says is never shown to defense lawyers, the Justice Department says it has a duty to be candid and tell judges every relevant fact in its possession.”

Oh, sure, why wouldn’t we believe that would happen?!

“But the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, uncovered that the F.B.I. had cherry-picked and misstated evidence about the Trump adviser, Carter Page, when seeking permission to wiretap him in October 2016 and in 2017 renewal applications.”

In all there were 17 “serious errors and omissions in the facts” regarding the FISA warrant applications.

17!!!

That, Mr. Wray, raises the bar here from extreme incompetence to a treasonous disregard and manipulation of the law.

We are all painfully aware of our two-tiered justice system…, us being on the lower tier.

Apologies are not going to suffice here.

Our last hope of seeing any justice served, at least for a while, is U.S. Attorney John Durham and his investigation into all of this FISA stuff.

His report should be submitted to Attorney General Barr before this summer.., hopefully along with his recommendation of criminal charges for more than a few of these treasonous individuals.

I’ll be very disappointed if we just continue to see more of the same…, more apologies and more “get out of jail free cards.”

I’ll keep you posted.

President Trump is toooo funny, and right on point…, again!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reported that, “President Trump retweeted a ‘photo-shopped’ image depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in Muslim headwear with a backdrop of the Iranian flag, in the midst of a Monday morning Twitter spree where he shared a number of posts accusing Democratic leadership of supporting the Iranian government.”

ademsiran 2

I don’t really think President Trump’s tweets should be characterized as “accusations,” but rather as restatements of actual events.

“The president’s political opponents have blasted him for ordering the drone strike against Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who has been linked to numerous attacks on American forces and more. Meanwhile, they largely have remained silent as the Iranian people have staged massive protests against their leaders, in the wake of the government shooting down a passenger plane and initially denying it.”

‘“The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue,’ said the original tweet from user @D0wn_Under.”

ademsiran 1

“Trump later summed up his views on the matter, stating, ‘The Democrats and the Fake News are trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years.’”

“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members. You’re not hearing China. You’re not hearing Russia,” Former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said.

“The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

EXACTLY!

How true and how pathetic.

Well…, you could add the fake news media and your usual collection of Hollywood elites to the mourning mix as well.

But, we, of course, are forced to endure our dose of propagandistic mis-information administered to counter the truth.  “This kind of statement is ridiculous, inflammatory and dangerous. Rather than inform viewers, Ambassador Haley wants to divide Americans,’ said former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile.

On the contrary, Ms. Brazile…, it is your statement which is “ridiculous” and divisive…, not ambassador Haley’s.

Tony Shaffer for the RealClear Politics website added, “As someone who went toe-to-toe with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Afghanistan, I can assure you that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani got exactly what he deserved when he perished in a U.S. drone strike. What he certainly doesn’t deserve is praise from Democrat lawmakers who would rather mourn a war criminal than credit President Trump for making the world safer.”

ademsiran 9

ademsiran 7

“As the leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force, [“Quds Force” is Iran’s unconventional arm that operates outside of the Iran’s borders] which has been designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, Soleimani was among America’s most vociferous and aggressive foes. He was personally responsible for the deaths of thousands, including the killing and maiming of hundreds of American soldiers. He was an evil, remorseless man, and his death is a positive development for the entire world — including his own country.”

“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, is currently considering a resolution that labels the strike that killed Soleimani ‘provocative and disproportionate.’”

ademsiran 12

ademsiran 11

ademsiran 8

“Disproportionate?”

How many more American soldiers would have to die to make this a proportionate action in your eyes, Nancy?

Another fifty?

Another hundred?

“Predictably, the Democrats have been stoking fears about Iran’s potential response ever since they’ve learned about Soleimani’s death, pretending that the strike jeopardized U.S. security rather than enhanced it. It seems no liberal lawmaker is immune to the lure of political opportunism in the midst of a presidential election campaign.”

ademsiran 6

We’re not supposed to send a drone strike…, we’re supposed to send pallets of cash to those that regularly chant “death to America,” ala Obama and Biden, and hope for the best.  That’s the preferred democrat strategy for dealing with Iran.

ademsiran 10

“But while the Democrats join our enemies in mourning Soleimani’s demise, those with knowledge of Soleimani’s terror campaigns are celebrating the death of a genuine war criminal.”

“This man was a terrorist in charge of an IRGC element that had been declared a terrorist organization. He was traveling, in violation of U.N. sanctions, to Iraq, with the apparent intent of inflicting harm on U.S. service members in the region. He was in a combat zone as a combatant in uniform — the legal basis to target him could not have been clearer, and the same goes for the moral justification.”

“The Democrats are politicizing this issue the way they’ve politicized every other issue since President Trump took office. They don’t even seem to care that they have to take the side of America’s enemies in order to criticize Donald Trump.”

Well said…, but who is taking the side of whom exactly?

Hmmm?

Don’t worry, be happy!

That doesn’t mean be blissfully ignorant, however.

We need to keep the faith, and we need to use our brains.

There are a lot of people out there intentionally trying to get others to worry.

There are a lot of people out there intentionally and knowingly pushing false narratives and pushing fake news in an effort to cause worry and anxiety in our lives.

anxiety 5

Jesus talked about worry and anxiety more than a few times, and he reminds us of how much God loves us, and how He can give us peace.

Whether you’re a Christian or not, Jesus’ words are worth our consideration.

anxiety 13

Matthew 6:25-27 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”

Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. “

Luke 21:14-15, 18-19 “But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict….  But not a hair of your head will perish. Stand firm, and you will win life.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Romans 8:31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Others have had some wise words regarding worry and anxiety as well.

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength. – Corrie Ten Boom

“A hundredload of worry will not pay an ounce of debt.” – George Herbert

“Worry, like a rocking chair, will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” – Vance Havner

So Jesus is saying He’ll help us with the worrying part…, but it’s up to us to be smart…, think for ourselves…, find the truth…, and see things for what they are and not what we’re told they are by people that may not have our best interests at heart.

anxiety 14

The other day I ran across Bishop T.D. Jakes addressing this exact topic while I was flipping through the channels.

anxiety 3

I was impressed by his message, and it was the inspiration for this blog actually.

“I came to tell you this mornin’ the devil is after your mind. He’s after your mind, brother. He’s after your mind, and let me tell ya somethin’: That’s why the car broke down. That’s why the roof started leakin’. That’s why they threatened your job. Let me tell ya somethin’: The devil don’t drive, and he don’t wanna go to work, so he doesn’t need your car, and he’s not after your job. He’s just usin’ that stuff to go after your mind ‘cause your mind is your power.”

If you acknowledge that evil exists…, that “”he” the Devil, the enemy, Satan, exists…, then you have to ask yourself, “Who and what is Satan using on the earth to help him deceive us?

Think about it.

Who is propagating lies and deception on Satan’s behalf?

anxiety 8

 

anxiety 6

anxiety 12

anxiety 7

“He don’t want your kids. Sometime, you don’t want ‘em! You know the devil don’t want your kids. He’s just usin’ what you care about to drive you crazy because he’s after your mind so that you will lose your power. Your mind is your power. Your power is your mind.”

“So Jesus says, ‘Take no thought.’ I’m goin’ to go deeper. Can I go deeper? So when he said, ‘Take no thought,’ I was uncomfortable with it because I didn’t really wanna preach it, and I thought, you know, because I’m really tryin’ to get us to think, and he says, ‘Take no thought,’ and I had to really look into it to understand that he’s not telling us to be mindless. You know what I think? He’s actually tellin’ us not to be distracted. Do you not know, you can be so into the possibilities of what could happen tomorrow, that you miss the pleasures of today? You could be so engrossed trying fend off what could happen that you don’t embrace what is happenin’?

“Worry is a computer that keeps buffering. Worry is when you keep thinkin’ the same thing over and over and over again without resolution. He’s sayin’, ‘Do not buffer, do not buffer, do not buffer.’”

Amen, Bishop Jakes…, Amen.

CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo is a big-talking baby who can’t handle his booze, just like the real Fredo!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CNN host Chris Cuomo doesn’t appreciate being nicknamed ‘Fredo,’ but has no problem labeling the president ‘Dirty Donald.’”

‘“Cuomo Prime Time’ on [a] Friday [last month] concluded with a segment in which the on-screen graphic referred to the president as ‘#DirtyDonald’ and the namesake host encouraged the moniker to trend on social media.”

Of course!  Isn’t that the liberal way?  Do unto others but don’t do unto me?

I’m not sure why I’m even bothering to comment on this, since I’ve never actually watched Cuomo’s show, nor has anyone else apparently.   It just seemed funny to me…, so here we go!

“Media Research Center analyst Ryan Foley wrote that the use of the nickname makes the CNN host ‘indistinguishable from a Democrat activist.’ The CNN host is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York, and was caught on video threatening a man earlier this year who called him ‘Fredo.’”

“Political satirist Tim Young told Fox News that Cuomo’s newfound fondness of a nickname [for President Trump] is hypocritical.”

“President Trump has mocked CNN’s Chris Cuomo by comparing him to ‘Fredo’ from ‘The Godfather.’”

‘“Cuomo is now officially playing the game that we’ve seen the left play since Trump won the Republican nomination in 2016, where if a joke or joke nickname I made about them, they scream that it’s the end of world… but when they do it, it’s perfectly alright,’ Young said.”

‘“Fredo’ is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile brother in the movie ‘The Godfather,’ who was played by John Cazale. The confrontation, which took place at a bar on New York’s Shelter Island, went viral when a man taunted him with the nickname.”

‘“I thought that was who you were,’ the man said.”

‘“No, punk-ass b—-es from the right call me “Fredo.” My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,’ a heated Cuomo responded. ‘“Fredo’ was from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur — are any of you Italian?… It’s a f—ing insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f—kin’ people. It’s like the N-word for us. Is that a cool f—ing thing?’”

afredo 9

No, Mr. Cuomo, it’s not an Italian slur…, it’s a personal slur directed directly at you. You’re the weak wuss of a younger brother just like Fredo.  Being Italian has nothing to do with it.

“After the man sarcastically told him, ‘You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television,’ Cuomo reacted, ‘If you want to play, we’ll f—ing play.’”

You tell ‘em Fredo!  Ooops…, I mean you tell ‘em Chris!

‘“If you’ve got something to say about what I do on television, then say it, but you don’t have to call me a f—in’ insult,’ Cuomo continued.”

Can I suggest you put your “big boy” pants on and chill, Chris?

‘“Hey man, listen, I don’t want any problems,’ the man, who appears to be holding the camera from below, told Cuomo.”

‘“Well, you’re gonna have a big f—in’ problem,’ Cuomo shot back.”

So hostile!

Just like on TV, you’re big on words, but obviously light on action.  All of the people in the bar were probably a bigger audience than you usually get as well.

“The video ended with multiple people attempting to separate the two men.”

Ha!  Ya…, I can see Cuomo now, acting like he didn’t want anyone holding him back!

“President Trump mocked the video, tweeting that he ‘thought Chris was Fredo also.’”

‘“The truth hurts,’ Trump tweeted. ‘Totally lost it!’”

Well…, you’re right again Mr. President!

I’m really tired of all of this Pit Bull bullsh#t.

How many times do we have to hear about Pit Bulls mauling some poor kids and then hear how Pit Bulls are getting a bad rap?

And this is coming from someone who loves dogs, someone who’s had many dogs in his life and someone one who owns two dogs right now.

The latest headline I read was “Man saves baby, girl from pit bull attack.”

I’m sorry but, “[I] never once heard, man saves baby from Golden Retriever.” – User “Foxisright1” from FOX news commentary

True that.

According to Charlotte Alter for TIME Magazine, “Pit Bulls make up only 6% of the dog population, but they’re responsible for 68% of dog attacks and 52% of dog-related deaths since 1982, according to research compiled by Merritt Clifton, editor of Animals 24-7, an animal-news organization that focuses on humane work and animal-cruelty prevention.”

As glaring as these numbers are, they’re still not telling the whole story.

There are “dog attacks” and then there are “dog attacks.”

I’m not concerned at all about a dog attacking an intruder.

I’m really not concerned about a dog attacking someone they perceive to be a threat to themselves or their masters either.

It’s these attacks by Pit Bulls on helpless children that bothers me to no end.

Like I mentioned earlier…, I’m sorry but, “[I] never once heard, man saves baby from Golden Retriever.” – User “Foxisright1” from FOX news commentary

Clifton adds that, “For the 32 years he’s been recording, there has never been a year when pit bulls have accounted for less than half of all attacks. A CDC report on dog-bite fatalities from 1978 to 1998 confirms that pit bulls are responsible for more deaths than any other breed.”

“Another report published in the April 2011 issue of Annals of Surgery found that one person is killed by a pit bull every 14 days, two people are injured by a pit bull every day, and young children are especially at risk. The report concludes that ‘these breeds should be regulated in the same way in which other dangerous species, such as leopards, are regulated.’ That report was shared with TIME by PETA, the world’s largest animal-rights organization.”

Doesn’t this pretty much tell the whole story and make my case?

Yet with all of this being said, we still hear the “bullsh#t” from dimwitted Pit Bull lovers.

“Supporters say Pit Bulls are getting a bad rap. Sara Enos, founder and president of the American Pit Bull Foundation, said that it’s wrong to blame dog attacks on pit bulls, because it’s the owners who are to blame. ‘It really boils down to being responsible owners,’ she said. ‘Any dog from any breed can be aggressive, it matters how it’s treated.’”

I totally agree that Pit Bull owners need to be held accountable for the behavior of their dogs as well, but that doesn’t give the dog carte blanche to tear up whoever they want.

“Many Pit Bull advocacy organizations, including BAD RAP, did not want to comment for this story. But there is a growing backlash against the idea that pit bulls are more violent than other dogs. ‘There is not any breed of dog that is inherently more dangerous,’ said Marcy Setter of the Pit Bull Rescue Center. ‘That’s simply not true.’”

These people can peddle this “bullsh#t” all they want, but again, like I said, I’m sorry but, “[I] never once heard, man saves baby from Golden Retriever.” – User “Foxisright1” from FOX news commentary

“Pits are IEDs [homemade bombs] just waiting to be triggered….I know several who are super cool dogs and great with kids…until they aren’t.” – User “Foxisright1” from FOX news commentary

“Even PETA, the largest animal-rights organization in the world, supports breed-specific sterilization for Pit Bulls. ‘Pit Bulls are a breed-specific problem, so it seems reasonable to target them,’ said Daphna Nachminovitch, PETA’s senior vice president of cruelty investigations. ‘The public is misled to believe that pit bulls are like any other dog. And they just aren’t.’ Even the ASPCA acknowledges on its website that Pit Bulls are genetically different than other dogs. ‘Pit Bulls have been bred to behave differently during a fight,’ it says. ‘They may not give warning before becoming aggressive, and they’re less likely to back down when clashing with an opponent.’”

“But Nachminovitch said PETA stands by breed-specific sterilization as a common-sense solution to what has become a human-safety issue. ‘These dogs were bred to bait bulls. They were bred to fight each other to the death,’ she said. ‘Just because we’re an animal-rights organization doesn’t mean we’re not concerned about public safety.’”

I’m glad someone at least is concerned about the public’s safety.

What you talkin’ ‘bout Sleepy Joe?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Mr. Excitement?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Creepy Joe?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout #2 (Obama’s #2)?!

What you talkin’ ‘bout Quid Pro Quo Joe?!

Speaking to overflow “crowds” of 10 to 20 people, Joe Biden has continued to call President Trump’s Iran policy into question.

abiden 1

As if Joe Biden has a clue regarding any matter of foreign policy!

It’s a well-known fact in Washington that Joe Biden hasn’t shown ANY ability to properly understand and/or strategically react to any foreign policy situation over that last 40 years in an advantageous manner!

I’m sure Creepy Joe would prefer we fly a plane load of cash over to Tehran…, beg for their forgiveness, and hope for the best.

Oh wait…, Quid Pro Quo Joe and his “friend” Barack already tried that!

And as for Crazy Bernie, Lizzie the bag lady, and Pistol Pete…, I’m sure the Ayatollah and his friends have been having a good laugh at their expense.  They’ve also been praying to Allah that Americans are stupid enough to elect one of these “special” people!

However President Trump chooses to react to Iran’s latest missile attack, I’m sure his course of action will project American strength and resolve, and not American weakness and fear.
