Nervous about what?

And some of you are making an assumption with the tone of your posts that I am some type of liberal Democrat. Far from it. I am actually fiscally conservative and somewhat socially liberal. I really do not label myself as a Republican or a Democratic. I think tying yourself to a political party is not the right thing to do. But, with that said, I have voted far more times Republican than I have Democrat. Heck, I even voted for Trump (although it was by no means an easy decision...I just disliked Clinton more than I disliked Trump and thought maybe something new would be a better choice). However, I will not vote for him again. I simply cannot stand who I think he is, a pathological liar and who appears to be nothing more than one more corrupt, self-serving politician.

With that said, I do not believe in attacking fellow forum members. I believe everyone has a right to their opinion. Although I am new here, I am not new to the internet or internet forums. I have been around the block a few times and this is not my first rodeo. I think you will find I will try to be polite, and my posts respectful and thought out, with maybe a bit of humor every now and then.

This is the internet, and nothing we will say will change anything.

well ok, this deserves a serious answer. unfortunately that's not happening right now: Poiseuille Jr is racing (in the rain) in upstate NY at the moment so too much distraction. I'll try to reply later tonight or tomorrow.

^
Did he win?


My thoughts:
Friday is Rosensteins last day.
Word is out that Mueller is leaving the DOJ.
DOJ policy is no trash talking someone who was not indicted. He can if he leaves.
He leaves, testifies with a string of open ended accusations that he and the Democrats rehearse between now and then.
The script is followed when they question him. Republicans try and counter afterwards.
This gives the MSM ammunition for months and the Obama spying gets no coverage. Keep the Trump bad narrative on full blast so as to help their goal...no Trump win 2020. THIS is their only goal. They know impeachment is not going to happen.

Found nothing.
Leaked the goofy letter.
Cross the wires of the letter and Barr's responses to it...pretty darn clever by Mueller but still tacky as hell, and what did we get? 'Barr BAD!'
Add it to the 200 page volume II op-ed and the TV people have ammunition. Toss in some upcoming snippets from Mueller that paint a 'he is guilty', we couldn't prove it gets swept aside, of something and we'll let people decide for themselves whatever they want.

This is more than disturbing if it actually happens. But look at the past two years. They're going to keep it alive.

Then...
Horowitz releases his report. The White House speed scans it for FISA abuse. If present, Trump will fire the other barrel of the shotgun and order all FISA documents be declassified.

No matter what all the TV people have said to that point, it will be buried by the IG's report and the full story on FISA applications and the aftermath.

The dems scorch them all business model will be buried by indictment after indictment.

Again, my personal forecast and nothing more.

Mucho popcorn.

How many of Muellers prosecutors were Republicans?
Just thought I'd get ahead of any 'But Mueller is a Republican' nonsense.

Mueller is a DC device party member.

Yeah the R's they had on the team were as much R's as McCain was. Just more sneaky, lib swamp creatures.

And another investigation to add to the list. This time it's the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community and the former FBI lead investigator into the Russia story Peter Strzok. Strzok emailed colleagues at the FBI that he believed the CIA was leaking large volumes of damaging and inaccurate anti-Trump information to the media. But but but I thought senior level bureaucrats going after Trump was a conspiracy theory?

Yup.
I posted that early this morning.

Brennan is a hot target. Clapper on deck.
This morning Wray testified he doesn't want to release the FISA docs because of FBI secrets being exposed. Welp, Chris, that is just too bad because it's coming.

But yeah, Trump is the dirty one.
Patience, it's going to be beautiful.

lol!

You try to find a news that fits your worldview, period. Nothing else.
Have you tried reading or posting anything from an objective news source, that's not blatantly biased?

Wray had her discussions with Steele marked secret LAST week and not to be released unredacted until 2045.
The blacked out blitzkrieg he had to turn over was enough, however.

The discussion was before the election. The only part that wasn't blacked out is damning. Steele told her he had a deadline...'Before the presidential election.'
All the rest of their talks must be an FBI DOJ corruption goldmine.

Then, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, you are going to need some lawyers.

Oops.

Slow ride, take it easy.

This web is going to need some serious untangling.

Former State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary Kathleen Ann Kavalec’s nomination for Ambassador to Albania was withdrawn recently by President Trump, according to a Senior White House official.


Girl, they onto you.
Run Kathleen, run!
