Where in the world is MEGHAN MARKLE?
Written by

WHERES MEGHAN 4Now you see them, now you don’t.

Poof!

Just like that, media outlets blasted out the announcement that Meghan Markle, the American-born actress-wife of Prince Harry of the United Kingdom, had flown the royal coop and had taken off for Toronto.  Supposedly, royal retainers sent formal letters to Air Canada that they were to ensure that Meghan was isolated from her fellow passengers and that nobody would be allowed to photograph her or molest her.

guiliani truth 5

“The truth isn’t the truth,” according to Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Sunday. This echoes Trump’s recent statement to veterans, "Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what's happening” and blamed “fake news” for the confusion. Author Ambrose Bierce had this to say on the topic, “The truth (with the comfort it brings) is open to all who grope in the night, crying for wisdom’s holy light.” Unfortunately, the light Giuliani and his boss have shed on Russian interference in U.S. elections has been diffuse to date, despite U.S. intelligence’s high beams.

Am I missing something?

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s embattled former Campaign chairman is looking at a possible life in prison as he awaits for the jury to return his future with a verdict in the first trial against him. He has been accused of bank fraud, tax fraud, a total of 18 counts.

Many of those watching the case unfold feel that the special counsel’s office, led by Robert Mueller, has a slam dunk of a case. Manafort refused to testify or call any witnesses in his defense. He has a trial set in one month, although he now wants a continuance.  Obviously, innocence or guilt is up to the jury, not Trump, Mueller, you or me. No matter how any of us view this case, the jurors' viewpoints rule.

Yes, he might win the case against him as getting reasonable doubt is very difficult, although the federal prosecutors have a great track record when they bring cases to trial, in part because the prosecutor staff and FBI are professionals, not politicos and are well-funded.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump blames Mueller, of course.

Today, the country’s number one-crime fighter told the media after being asked whether he would pardon Manafort:

THE PRESIDENT: I don't talk about that, no. I don't talk about that. I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad. When you look at what's going on there, I think it's a very sad day for our country.


He worked for me for a very short period of time. But you know what? He happens to be a very good person. And I think it's very sad what they've done to Paul Manafort.
Thank you very much.


What the heck is going on with this administration, this president and his firm ardent supporters who will rationalize everything the President does? Remember when President Obama intervened in the very controversial Trayvon Martin-Zimmerman case? The president waded into the tragedy of the death of Martin, not pre-determining that trial, but reminding the world that Martin could have been his son.
The right wing crowd blew a gasket. How dare the president throw the power and influence of his office around the judicial system like that! And they were right. Not only would a statement like that risk the tainting of a jury, but, it is just wrong on so many fronts.

But now, President Trump has a different view. His own presidency is at risk as well as possible liabilities of his family. The drum is beating deeper and louder calling for impeachment after recent events that have shocked the nation.


Manafort is being charged for very serious white collar crimes. Yet our President is blaming the prosecutors.


Where are those right wingers who were rightfully outraged when Obama stepped over the line in the Zimmerman case? Trump has been using this "blame the government" tactic now ever since Manafort got indicted, if not before.


The silence is stunning. Trump’s behavior shows his state of mind. He will do whatever it takes, I believe, to ensure that he does not meet a similar fate as his former chairman.



His statement today is just one more piece of evidence of criminal intent in an obstruction of justice case and abuse of power charge.

Instead of telling the world to wait for justice to be heard, he has blasted Mueller team, regardless as to what the jury might determine and knowing that another trial is right down the road.


That the president of the United States has brought this country so close to this type of division, discourse and suspicion is profound.
Borrowing his words from today, I think it is very sad what this president has done to our country.

The Mississippi River Ship Channel could be the first port complex on the Gulf Coast to reach a depth of 50 feet now that the Director’s Report has been signed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Elected officials and industry leaders have long worked to increase the channel’s depth to 50 feet, which is the same depth of the expanded Panama Canal.

There seems to be a wealth of fabricators at the state capitol in Baton Rouge.  Gov. Edwards is accusing U.S. Senator John Kennedy of making "untruthful comments" on the early release of state prisoners.  Kennedy has countered back calling out the Governor for “bending the truth.”  Two state senators physically squared off against each other in a local bar.  And both Democrat and Republican legislators have accused each other of “hiding the truth” as to just whose at fault over the state’s perilous financial condition.

Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, there have been over 60 million abortions throughout the country. According to former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton, these abortions have been great for the U.S. economy.

At the August 11 “Rise Up for Roe” event dedicated to stopping the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, Clinton said, “It is not a disconnected fact … that American women entering the labor force from 1970 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy.” Clinton connected this economic impact to the legalization of abortion.

Retaliation or national security?  Just why does John Brennan no longer have security clearance?

Today, Sarah Sanders sent shockwaves across the nation’s intel community today as she read a statement from President Donald Trump which announced  that former CIA director John Brennan's security clearance has been revoked.








African trump 7

The liberal mainstream news media has a narrative about Donald Trump and they do not deviate. The constant refrain is that the President is unhinged, idiotic, tyrannical and especially racist. Recently, the President was labeled a racist when he criticized CNN’s Don Lemon and NBA star LeBron James. Their latest obsession is the new book written by fired White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman.

Is whacky Royal Family Di cast for Thomas Markle?
Written by


royal whack

British royalty has been whacking people for thousands of years.

Whacking people you don’t like, who are obstinate, who are doing things like standing in the way of your next marriage—well, whacking those people and almost anyone else, without any fear of punishment or retribution, that’s been one of royalty’s most powerful perks.

 

scalise trump 5

Steve Scalise, the Republican House Whip from the 1st Congressional District of Louisiana, who was shot during a baseball practice last year, is the leading candidate for Speaker of the House, as per the most recent Politico, Morning Consult poll.

Scalise has not declared his candidacy for the position as he has supported the House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, but indicated that he might run if McCarthy did not.  According to this poll, Scalise might want to keep the gavel warm as McCarthy is at bottom of pack.

 

ellis caesar

Judge T.S. Ellis, III once referred to himself as “Caesar in [the] Rome” that’s his courtroom though, by the jurist’s own admission, it’s a pretty small place. An exquisitely educated Reagan appointee, since 1984, Ellis transforms himself from mere mortal into mini-deity every time he dons a black toga to judge the accused arrayed beneath his bench who must contend for favor.
 
Donald Trump praised Ellis, recently, for the scoldings he’s been giving prosecutors from the special counsel’s office during the trial of Paul Manafort, ex-chair of the Trump campaign. Manafort is accused of evading taxes, money-laundering, and a passel-full of other financial crimes, mostly having a nexus to unreported income earned from pro-Russia work he undertook for the Ukraine’s former president, Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko, who fled to Russia before the axe dropped.

HARRY MARKLE 2
Did Thomas Markle, Sr. “lie” to Prince Harry?


That’s the question burning up the Daily Mail and British radio waves this weekend.

Commentators claim that Prince Harry telephoned his soon-to-be father-in-law, Thomas Markle, on May 11—eight days before Harry’s wedding to Meghan, and asked him…well, we don’t know exactly what.  Because Harry and Thomas had never met nor had they ever spoken before then.  So, how do we know for sure who said what to whom, when Thomas Markle can’t even be sure himself who exactly was speaking to him on the telephone?
