Alan Dershowitz, everyone’s favorite right-wing nutjob thinks Mueller should be investigated for his role as FBI Director.

Dershowitz on Mueller

Palin’s “drill, baby, drill” is finally reaping rewards.

IMHO, Greenspan was pulling a Francisco d'Anconia on America. 'You like paper money? Here, have it. Have more. Have as much as you want. See what good it gets you.'

Remember, even back around then, he was still claiming to be an advocate of gold-back currency. The quickest way to return to hard currency would be to accelerate the demise of fiat dollars.

Well, well. well....that's what my Granny meant by "What goes around, comes around"“The mob takes the Fifth - if you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” - Quote by Trump at a campaign rally in September 2017.

25 April 2018 - Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen says he will plead the Fifth Amendment in the case brought by adult film star Stormy Daniels.

How else do you think Trump would get a chance to bone a woman 40 years his junior who also bears a passing resemblance to his daughter? His good looks and charm??

And if it turns out the funds were from the campaign, itís a violation and a fine, just like every other violation committed by pretty much every political campaign, Obama, Bernie et al of both sides.

She is now a thing of the moment past, hence the new DNC collusion lawsuit.

it really would be nice if the kindergarten would spend half as much time working for the American people as they both do playing gotcha.

When, not if, the cost of servicing the debt becomes unmanageable, entitlement programs fail, it will not be Trumpís fault, look to both sides. They sure put aside their differences to vote our monies away didnít they.

i am neither for or against Trump, he is simply the result of a lot of regular folks that are sick and tired of politics as usual, being told how and what to think and do, PC, on and on.

Inside the Beltway its all about power and money, who has it, who wants it, who are the king and queen makers, regular folks, promise the moon, lie to them, works every time but the last one. Personally I donít ever see that happening within the Democrat party, Bernie II would be replayed, however the Republicans seem to spend most of their time in fractious cliques, making it somewhat easier for a disrupted to succeed.

Now I see Bernie is promising $15/hr + benefits Govt jobs to anyone that ďwantsĒ one, that should really speed up the now what do we do moment at Treasury.

Really is no common sense out there any more, none at all.

GF,

You left out one word, makes a difference if you are a lawyer:

Alan Dershowitz: Maybe Mueller should be investigated

What I meant about the IRS was whether this has been disclosed as income by Stormy. If not then the can or worms just got nastier.

Hempy,

I have to ask, did Trump turn you down for a date at some time, or did his daughter turn you down?

Now for some good news. Not exactly politically related, but tangentially related to policy changes.

Boeing reports record profit for quarter. ConocoPhillips Q1 beat estimates, up nicely. MGM reports near record earnings and profit. Shell profit exceeds target handily. Visa card services going gangbusters. Durable goods orders up 2.6% in March after ~2% increase in Feb. Hard to find losers in the US economy these days. There's a few out there, but the overall picture of my 401k is pretty much all green(I'm heavily invested in stocks and risk based investments, no annuities or govt bonds). Also plenty of reports of mass migration out of blue states into red states fleeing cash strapped economies with loads of debt. Sadly, that will result in a sprinkling of lefties trying to ruin my conservative county and state. Maybe we can build a wall with CA? heheheee

Unfortuntely EC good economic news, folks having more money in their 401kís, take home pay doesnít sell well, hookers, lawsuits, investigations do.
Please wait on the CA wall until after November, letís see if folks finally wake up and repeal the gas/car tax, none of which so far have gone towards the roads as promised.
