Democrats may not know much about history (except if they can blame America), and don't know much biology (HOW many genders??), but when it comes to Donald Trump, they know their “three R’s”: Russia, racism, and recession.

They tried to take him down with their made-up “Russia” narrative, going so far as to accuse candidate Trump, President-elect Trump, and finally President Trump of being a Russian agent, Vladimir Putin’s puppet, a traitor to his country who should be swinging from the highest tree. After faking the reason to investigate him and turning his campaign and later his administration inside out for over three years, they found that nothing was going to come of this incredible accusation, and impeachment started looking like a shattered dream. Now we know that THEY, obviously, were the ones who “colluded” and “meddled” in the 2016 election.

So Democrats had to quickly replace that burnt-out narrative with another one. Never mind Russia –- Trump was a hard-core racist, a white supremacist, even though no one in their dealings with him throughout his life had found that to be true. They twisted his words and used their misinterpretations as evidence. The drumbeat of “racist, racist, racist” continued and even escalated, ridiculously, until polling showed that not enough Americans were changing their minds about this but were, in fact, getting sick of hearing about it. So the narrative is morphing again, this time to “recession,” and that’s where we are now.

The new phony narrative is that Trump is causing America to go into a recession, mostly because of his strategy with China to correct longstanding trade inequities. Never mind the natural fluctuations of the business cycle, the super-low unemployment rate, and how well we’re doing compared to the rest of the world, which, overall, is declining economically. This is where Trump’s political opposition has parked for a while, and they will try to do some damage. To support their rhetoric, they would like a recession now, please. Bill Maher was at least honest enough to remark, “I’ve been saying for about two years that I hope we have a recession....” Interesting how the people who think this way are too rich and successful to be affected by a weak economy.

Sure, send millions of Americans to the unemployment line if that’s what it takes to get rid of a President you don’t like. Talk us into a panic that in itself could bring on bad economic times. Bring back the very real malaise of the Obama Years that we’ve managed to climb out of; it’s worth the pain, in their minds, if they can blame Trump for it.

Another reason a new phony narrative is needed is to distract from the original phony narrative: RUSSIA. That’s because its perpetrators never planned on getting investigated themselves. But they know these investigations take time, and if they could use the “recession” narrative to keep Trump from getting re-elected, the door would slam shut on Attorney General Bill Barr’s investigation into the origins of the probe, if it were yet to conclude because Barr would be out on his ear. U.S. Attorney Durham would be off the case. Lindsay Graham in the Senate would be the only one left to forge ahead.

But in the meantime, RUSSIA is not going away. Thanks to new books such as Andrew C. McCarthy’s THE BALL OF COLLUSION, the full story is being told. And more moving parts are being exposed, as in a new story from the Washington Times that involves the Pentagon and one of the informants who penetrated the Trump campaign. Pentagon analyst and whistleblower Adam S. Lovinger, who was suspended from the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA) for complaining that it wasn’t doing its job but was assigning questionable contracts for outside academic-style reports to the likes of Stefan Halper. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because he happens to be one of those accused of spying on Trump campaign associates such as George Papadopoulos.

The Department of Defense went after Lovinger, suspending his security clearance and rushing to terminate his employment before the inspector general could even look at the case. They accused him of leaking “sensitive” information to the press. Then, after an NCIS report cleared Lovinger –- nearly a year ago –- his lawyer wasn’t even told. Lovinger was still fighting, unsuccessfully, to get his job back as recently as this spring. The exculpatory evidence has finally turned up only because Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court to obtain the Pentagon’s file against Lovinger.

So, why was FBI informant Stefan Halper getting paid by the Pentagon in the first place, and why was it so important to keep the lid on that? Stay tuned.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/aug/14/investigation-clears-analyst-accused-of-leaking-da/

John Solomon has written an excellent piece on the reforms needed as an outcome of the Russia case. For one thing, the FBI needs a clear set of rules governing when they can investigate (SPY ON) a political campaign, which is supposed to be protected by the First Amendment. The evidence in the “Trump/Russia” case was so unbelievably flimsy, this should have gone without saying, but let’s go ahead and spell it out.

The other reform involves the use of “confidential human sources” (see Stefan Halper, above). Solomon mentions a finding from just this month that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was paying other officials at the Homeland Security Department’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to work as informants. (According to Solomon, “The IG spared few words in decrying the idiocy of allowing government security officers collecting a federal salary to double-dip into taxpayers’ money by receiving informant pay to report criminal activity they were required by their jobs to disclose.”) And, of course, we already know the problems with the FBI’s use of severely biased and unreliable source Christopher Steele, basing a FISA warrant application on his work and continuing contact with him through the DOJ’s Bruce Ohr, whose wife was working under contract essentially for the Hillary Clinton campaign. This sort of conflict appears to have been business as usual within the Justice Department...and State Department...and, it seems, the Pentagon.

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/457628-new-evidence-shows-why-steele-the-ohrs-and-tsa-workers-never-should-have

Anyway, of the “three R’s” --- Russia, racism, and recession --- that Democrats have incorporated into their ever-changing narrative, the one to really pay attention to is the RUSSIA story, as it has turned out to be incredibly significant, just not at all in the way Democrats had intended. The tables have been turned on them. Let’s hope that in the end, they’re made to feel very, very sorry they ever created that sham. Of course, they’ll never be sorry they did it --- only sorry they were found out.

    The democrats are already starting to put a dent in the economy in such a way that if you complain or point out the flaws they will easily turn it around to conservatives want to destroy our world. The 5th largest city in Oregon recently passed a law against plastic bags. I suspect this is a trial run for the green thing. This may seem insignificant, but when you consider the amount of people involved in the making, marketing, shipping and other factions that jobs will be affected, it is a big deal. Keep in mind the shopper has to purchase paper bags as well. In my opinion let the supporters of green thing inconvenience themselves. If they are really all that concerned they should start taking busses instead of buying autos, as cars contain enough plastic to supply bags for a whole family for years. Let them start buying all fresh foods to avoid plastic bottled items, and drink tap water. Perhaps start making their own condiments, chips and other items. I appreciate the children that came up with the idea and wanted to do something, but since when do we let short sighted children dictate what should be legal or policy. Another thing that wasn't considered was how it would affect the poor. Having been poor just buying a candy bar became a major decision. Let the wealthy politicians do their part, by stopping buying plastic wrapped or bottled items, instead of inconveniencing others or putting it on the poor. Banning plastic bags to save the world is like banning toothpicks to save a forest.

    As Galatians 6th Chapter, 7th verse, says, "Be not deceived; God 8s mot mocked: for whatsoever, a man soweth, that shall he also reap." That means Male man, and female man, who both make up mankind. I truly believe that President Trump is God's man of the hour for our nation, and they that come against him, are fighting against God's will for our nation, and will now by his hand, fall into his judgement, and I truly believe that the curses of the book of Deuteronomy chapter 28 are going to begin from on high and fall upon them now.

    I remember recently hearing that the Federal Government is bringing back the death penalty. Isn’t Treason against an Elected President punishable by death. We could send a strong message about weaponizing the very agents that were supposed to be protecting the law biding citizens by (excuse the expression) cutting the head off of this serpent. I have found a new fondness for the irony.

    Reading today this article and hearing of free health care I find that many are growing "tired" of the stories in the news. Many are turning away from the news all together. As you stated Democrats and a few rino's seem to be on the highway to h3ll as we both know that there is only a stairway to the right place! As for the deal about health care, a few things that might be considered that seniors on SSI should not have to chose between eating and their medication (hospital and Pharmacy's should bite the bullet on Excess billing charge, also veteran be in that group. If we took the money Democrats are giving fence jumpers for medical treatment, that would save millions also well it all my opinion to both problems.

    How can leftists label people racist because of their skin color? Leftists accuse their perceived opponents of what they are —race mongers. Leftists prove it with every headline screaming falsities. Many fled Europe in early 1900’s to escape starvation, oppressive governments, only seeking opportunity to work and live freely. How are they responsible for slavery? We’ve shut off news media, quit social media, and pray President Trump lives to fight another day against New World Order supporters.

    I am so sick of the way the Democrats has done toward our President & our country. I will never vote for a Democrat ever. There is so much crime & deception in our political system that to me I think every one serving in office now should be wiped our of office and a new campaign for limited term offices be done with new candidates for those offices.

    Dear Mike, what you just said could be summed up in one word, EVIL!...And you know all too well that EVIL is authored by the EVIL ONE himself and, while the "fruit" that identifies one as a follower.of Christ is His LOVE, the fruit that identifies one as a follower of the EVIL ONE is his HATRED!...Below I am going to copy and paste, how I just basically expressed this in response to an email message I received from, supposedly, the president;

    Yes, I AM one of your ..(like I BELIEVE that President Trump is going to be the one who will read this...nevertheless, I AM responding to what he wrote)... TOP supporters and, if God arranges for my voice to be heard, I might wind up being your greatest supporter....especially since I live in Charlotte, NC!

    UNDERSTAND ONE THING...I am only a supporter of you because I am a supporter of Jesus Christ!....and,.BECAUSE this is true, can I state TO you that there can be no talk of America being great until parents can send their children to school without worrying that they may get shot IN school! Out kids are now going back to school with bullet proof school bags! THIS IS SCANDALOUS FOR A COUNTRY THAT CLAIMS TO BE GREAT!

    Here in Charlotte our kids are dropping like flies!.. Because, on the news we hear daily reports of one of our (HIS) kids being shot to death, this whole city is crying for an ANSWER.....Since it is HATRED that is authoring these shootings, it will only be LOVE (Christ's brand of unconditional love) that stops them!

    This BEING true, your message about America being great should INCLUDE this truth.....which will then open the door for you to point out that THE DEMOCRATS' HATRED TOWARD YOU IS THE SAME HATRED THAT IS KILLING OUR KIDS!

    You need to Google the name Kendal Crank and read about how this precious 27year old mother of two lost her life on her way to one of her nursing classes (because she was studying to become a nurse) when, while she was stopped at a traffic light in downtown Charlotte, she was caught in a crossfire shooting between three kids and died!

    I have joined forces with Kendal's parents and I can almost guarantee you that, by the time you arrive here in Charlotte, our cry for our kids, who are going to early graves, WILL be heard because our cry reechoes HIS cry for His dying kids....who are dying at the hands of our hurting kids because their anger and hatred only masks their pain...

    And SHOULD our voices BE heard, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that our miracle-working God WILL arrange for you to meet us....so I don't need to join a contest in the hope that my name may be drawn so I CAN meet you!

    AND in contrast to the HATRED being promoted by the SQUAD, is a Muslim cab driver who said to me, quote, "YOU HAVE A MESSAGE TO GIVE THE WHOLE WORLD!"

    Talking ABOUT "messages", did Paula White ever talk to you about WHY our Lord was called a "Man of Sorrows" ...and how we who claim, as Christians, to be in relationship WITH this Man of Sorrows, not only share HIS love for His kids, but also share His tears OF sorrow, and great, WHEN hatred sends them to an early grave?

    AND if Paula White has NOT so "advised" you OF this, then get yourself another spiritual advisor who IS sharig our Lord's grief over these tragic shootings that, ultimately, are being authored under the influence of Satan himself and, in the process, making a mockery of the words, "one nation UNDER GOD" , that was intended to explain WHY the word "great" DID define the nation OF America!

    IN His brand of love, Kay

    Interesting (cough, cough) that Adam S. Lovinger lost his job, and he and his lawyer were never advised he was exonerated? But, look at the list of names of wrong-doers on the left. So, the names are "out there," some, at least, but heaven knows how long any will be brought to justice. And, doesn't bruce ohr still have a job in the US Government? Wasn't what HE did called leaking? Much like good ol' comey leaking his memos/emails to a good buddy for the purpose of leaking that to the press? Well, sure, comey lost his job, but I sure hope the other shoe is going to be dropping on him. And, I wonder, all these disgraced (although I'm sure they don't think so) former officials who are now commentators or analysts or whatever for msm--If (hopefully WHEN) they are carted off to prison--will msm continue to use them? Paying hefty salaries, I'm sure. But the big financial backers of the leftist/socialist movement can afford it.

    Ah, recession. Not a positive word from the left when the markets mainly rose and rose and rose after Donald Trump became President. The headlines I read were for 3 days in a row where the market fell--I did not read to see by how much. Not plummeted, not tanked, but "fell." Didn't hear a word about the next headline I read which was that the market had bounced back. The spouters of recession must have taken the same economics college course as ocasio did.

    The conspiracy against President Trump is unbelievably HUGE!

    The entire Fake News Media is spinning the recession story to actually erode consumer confidence, kill spending, and cause a recession.

    The economy is Trump’s ace and the Dims & MSM need to kill it.

    The fundamentals of the economy are incredible; wage growth across middle and lower incomes, increase in US manufacturing, lowest unemployment across all sectors, low interest rates ... Only thing driving the stock market is historical reaction to inverted yield curves. In the past that signaled a coming recession. Today it's caused by investment in US treasuries from around the world because the US is the safest place to put money.

They are in the same boat as a group of bloodthirsty pirates!! They have no morals or no allegiance to America,! All they care about is filling their pockets with money (stealing it from American citizens) the eight years of obozo proved that, the most corrupt president in the history of America!!WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE WE BECOME ANOTHER VENEZUELA!!

    Thank you for your newsletter! I always look forward to reading intelligent, real information about the political pulse of America. I also want to Thank You Very Much for the photo of you and President Trump I just received in the mail today from Your Faith Votes. I love the photo and I will show it to my son and his children as they are firm supporters of President Trump and God, and America.

    Now for some not-so-good news from the Liberal, Socialist lover Governor of New York State, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, new law now in New York State, it is against the law in New York State to leave your pet unattended in your vehicle in hot or cold weather. Mind you not a suggestion, but a Law now. But it is okay to abort your child up to a week before the 9 months gestation period. So, in New York State Government, they are more worried about animals than people. Which is typical of Liberal Control of the New York State Gov.

    My husband and I, and our families, the ones left in New York State, are, but we shouldn't be, dumbfounded that things can get worse with Liberals controlling every aspect of govt. in New York State. They don't even count our votes if we live outside of New York City. It is a fact, but no one will be successful at finding the proof of that. So, to show a micro-cosmism of what the whole country would be like if Liberals controlled all aspects of the Federal Government, just look at New York State. That's proof enough of how horrible and dangerous it would be to let Liberals win. Their new tactic now is to paint President Trump as a racist. But the only ones promoting racism IS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS, located, of course, in New York City, where AOC is a rep. from. New York City actually charges fees and taxes for 'air flow acreage space' when companies want to purchase buildings in New York City. Another reason probably why Amazon said NO to New York City. It is worse than what is, of course, ever reported in the media. The only way to tackle the Liberals in New York State, is to get New York City on the Conservative side, and that would be an act from God, or His assistant, Mother Nature.

    I am so glad that most Americans do not follow the politics as maybe seniors do we have a little more time than our working citizens; while working and raising my family the only politics I cared about was our Healthcare costs and level of good care and who was helping me get the best dollar per hour and other benefits. Way back the Democrats seemed to be on the side of labor and the Farmer you guessed it I was a Democrat today that party is the dinosaur gone, they now push communist and Socialist agendas to be a member all you really need to know what can I do to destroy what is America. Our education system for the last 30 years has leaned toward that agenda that why we have these in my opinion moronic views. The old verse of nothing of value is free is true, and a lot of numbskulls just don't believe that. Mike this is for you, as you are on the set at Fox with I feel are questionable panelist Williams Marsh Smith Tarov Brazil you know them please stand or sit strong with the facts indicate where the truth is you don't have to worry if you loose them as friends they won't help you anyway; you have so many great people with you. as friends out here away from NY and Washington DC, the mentioned above panelist are as valuable as human waste on a storefront entrance.
