Angry unemployed children, AKA Antifa, held another Trump protest today in Berkeley, CA. It’s Trump’s fault of course that they took out 6 figure student loans and haven’t been approached by numerous employers to put those English majors to work.
Unlike the UC Berkeley riots which shut down a Milo Yiannopoulos speech, several Trump supporters showed up today to counter-protest the Antifa idiots – resulting in civil discourse.
This may be it folks; Watergate 2.0 is here. Finally an appropriate scandal worthy of the stupid ‘gate label.
Last night on Fox, Paul Ryan sat down with Brett Baier – who asked Ryan to opine on new bombshell revelations that the Obama administration made two requests to wiretap Trump and his associates. Tellingly, Ryan acts like he doesn’t know what Baier is talking about, then keeps robotically returning to the talking point that no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign was found.
Baier: There’s a report that [in] June 2016, there’s a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) request by the Obama administration to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several campaign officials. They get turned down, and then in October they renew it, and they do start a wiretap at Trump Tower
Ryan: Well, again… [stammers] and like I said, nobody in congress has been presented with any evidence to the contrary of what you just said.
Baier: So you believe it to be true?
Ryan: Yeah, that… that, we have seen no evidence that anybody in this campaign, um, or any other American was in on it with the Russians to meddle in our elections. We know they meddled. Russia’s an adversary, and that’s something we have to work to counteract.
Baier: I got it, but the point is that the Obama administration was pretty aggressive – a couple of FISA requests.
Ryan: No, I hear your point, but I’ve seen nothing of that – nothing come of that. That’s my point.
And for those who want to argue semantics – whether Obama ordered the wiretaps directly or not:
Watergate has always been mired in controversy over whether or not Nixon actually ordered the break-in; evidence going both ways exists, yet it was enough to impeach Nixon:
Who ordered it? “There is no evidence,” Dean writes, “in all the Nixon-Watergate-related conversations that anyone in the White House had advance knowledge that Liddy was going into the Watergate.” –MSNBC
…the articles of impeachment drawn up against Nixon by the House Judiciary Committee in 1974, the “smoking-gun” tape that forced him to resign, did not link him to the original order for the break-in, they link him only to the cover-up afterward. –The Observer
We’re not talking about an impeachment, of course… Just one more nail in the coffin of credibility within the Democratic party as all their narratives unravel.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) appeared on Fox’s First 100 Days Thursday evening after a closed door briefing earlier in the day by FBI director James Comey concerning the agency’s investigation into claims of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The interview begins with host Martha MacCallum mentioning that Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who attended the same meeting, was “rattled” over the lack of information Comey gave concerning Russian involvement in the election.
Gowdy, on the other hand, seemed shocked at Schiff’s apparent lack of enlightenment:
Jim Comey did more today to update us than I have ever had done in the 6 years I have been there, and for Adam to treat it that way – that dismissively, clearly he and I were in two separate rooms this morning.
I have never heard a Federal law enforcement agent give, with that degree of particularity and detail, an update on an inquiry. As you may recall, I was a federal prosecutor for 6 years, so I have talked to lots of FBI agents. He went so far beyond what any other administration official has ever done, whether it’s Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, or his predecessor Robert Muller – they never gave us this level of detail and specificity. Hebent over backwards.
When pressed on whether or not FBI Director Comey revealed any new information in light of [former CIA Director] John Brennan and [former Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper finding no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, Gowdy deflected – citing the confidential nature of the briefing. He did, however, make a statement concerning the New York Times ($NYT) and Washington Post – publications included in what President Trump and top advisor Steve Bannon refer to as the media “opposition party”:
I will tell you this – to the extent people are relying on media reports, whether it’s the New York Times or the Washington Post, upon which to base their factual assertions, I would tell them to be very very careful. I’m not gonna say any more than that, other than to say that the person leading the investigation on behalf of the Untied States government, the head of the FBI, listen to what he has to say – don’t listen to anonymous sources who leak classified information which, oh by the way, is also against the law. Between Jim Comey and a reporter from the New York Times, give me Jim Comey.
Takeaways: Rep. Gowdy clearly heard a lot of things he liked during the closed door session, while deflated Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff did not. Second; FBI director Comey obviously discussed the dissemination of leaked classified information to the mainstream media – to the extent that Gowdy, an attorney and former prosecutor, is advising people who rely on the leaks to be “very, very careful” in doing so.

Question for progressives; are you still buying the Russian scourge / Trump puppet story your fearless communist leadership is selling? To normal people, this Russia bullshit is nothing more than a bunch of sore losers who keep beating the same dead horse to explain away the fact that they just suffered their biggest defeat in decades.
SUCH A THREAT:
Of course, then there was that time Obama promised Putin he'd have "more flexibility" after the US election. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/q2RQ2q5utQ
Democrats have two major problems; compulsive lying, and they suck at technology. The DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign being hacked by 5 to 7 foreign intelligence agencies whereas the RNC and Trump’s data was secure is a great example of the latter, however perhaps the best combination of questionable ethics and technological ineptitude was the episode in which Hillary Clinton’s incompetent IT guy crept onto Reddit during the Benghazi investigation to ask how he could strip Hillary’s email address from (legally) archived records.
The latest example of lying while sucking at technology comes to us from Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO), who tried her best to pile on in the Russophobic Jeff Sessions witch hunt by emphatically tweeting about how she’s never had a call or meeting with the Russians. Ever. Unfortunately for Claire, she forgot about the two times she not only did that, but tweeted about it!
Witness this epic fail:
Too bad Claire didn’t think to use Twitter’s advanced search like Redditors did about 5 minutes after her tweet. Considering the fervor over Jeff Sessions today – with top Democrats demanding he step down for lying (which was debunked within hours, yet still resulted in his recusal from any inquiries into Russian election interference), we are left to wonder when Claire McCaskill will tender her resignation, you know – for actually lying.
NYT repeated as truth Claire McCaskill's lie that she never met or spoke to Russia's ambassador, then stealth deleted it w/o any note. pic.twitter.com/1adhWZdksE
Shares in Caterpillar ($CAT) are down sharply after Federal authorities executed search warrants at three facilities, including the corporate headquarters in Peoria, IL. The multi-agency raid is being conducted by the IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division, the Commerce Dept’s Office of Export Enforcement, and the FDIC’s office of Inspector General. The reason for the investigation is presently unknown.
At the Downtown Caterpillar global headquarters building, at least some company employees were directed to the building’s cafeteria and were told to remain there and not leave, according to one employee at the facility. Another source with direct knowledge indicated those sequestered there include employees in the tax and accounting divisions, as well as from executive offices.
Some of the agents entering the headquarters building wore jackets bearing an Internal Revenue Service logo, others appeared to be from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Others simply denoted that they were federal agents. A placard in the window of one of the federal vehicles noted it was used by police from the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security Office of Export Enforcement. –pjstar.com
A harrowing scene unfolded as an Argentinian DREAMer missing her earlobes was detained by ICE and held with no bond, after giving an anti-Trump speech about deportation – while currently overstaying her visa.
Daniela Vargas, 22, has resided in the USA since she was 7 years old under the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) immigration policy – which requires recipients reapply every two years to retain legal residency. In February, more than 50 undocumented immigrants were picked up in an immigration sweep – including Vargas’ father and brother. During the February arrest, Vargas allegedly hid in the closet – only to be discovered, handcuffed, and subsequently released.
Not this time…
After her father and brother were detained, Vargas previously told The Clarion-Ledger she planned to go into hiding. She came out of hiding to speak at the conference.
Since she came into the country on a visa waiver program, Vargas could be processed without a hearing, Peterson said.
I’m not going to question Vargas’ intelligence for flagrantly challenging the Trump administration’s ICE agency after barely avoiding arrest only weeks earlier. Who am I to judge? Follow your heart and stick your dick in a beehive for all I care, but don’t get mad when you get stung.
Before being detained Wednesday, Vargas said she planned to move out of state with her mother and pursue her dream of being a university math professor. –Clarion Ledger
Perhaps this is for the best? The Vargas family will now be deported together, and can enjoy life back in their home country of Argentina where, according to sources, they still teach math.
The DNC is dead. Muerte. Fin. Let’s take an inventory of how the elitist left has been fucking up in spades;
Out of touch:
Skeletor’s mother, aka Crypt Keeper’s next ex wife, aka nutsack ear – Nancy Pelosi, led a parade of miserable shrews to Trump’s speech last night, wearing KKK-esque cult outfits.
Given how epic Trump’s speech turned out to be, perhaps a course correction was in order? A hand signal or something? Nope, this gaggle of dumb bitches stomped out after Trump finished – back to snake mountain, while 78% of respondents in a CNN poll reacted positively to Trump.
Following Trump’s speech, the official DNC response was issued by a life-alert representative / heaven’s gate cult leader.
NEXT, we have a top volunteer for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Dan Grilo – a perfect example of liberal sociopathy, who called a navy seal widow an idiot. When the internet exploded with rage, he deleted the tweet, and then his entire Twitter account – not before backpedaling like a bitch of course. Now he’s unemployed; most assuredly only because he got caught.
What’s this? Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her horrible soul-glow perm couldn’t be bothered to applaud for the same widow during the two minute standing ovation.
Speaking of out of touch bitches, Chelsea Hubbell Clinton, of recent “driving a Clinton Foundation official to the brink of suicide” fame, keeps making retarded tweets and is getting BTFO every. single. time.
Chelsea Hubbell, raised in a bubble, shitposting every day. Along came THE ENTIRE INTERNET WHICH FUCKING DESTROYS HER ON A REGULAR BASIS. End of story.
Please tell your mother not to destabilize the Middle East and slaughter thousands and thousands of Muslims. Oh wait. https://t.co/0VlN12r3a3
Liberals – from millennials to old commies, can’t stop making ass:
Comments sections across the blogosphere are full of bitter, snarky, self-confident losers who don’t seem to understand that now is the time to shut the fuck up and attempt introspection. They demand their participation award, as the generation raised on Nickelodeon and MTV can’t help but substitute arrogance for a wholesale lack of substance. These people are truly empty shells, and when humility is in order – it’s file not found. Most of these bitches need to plug in and download the “losing with grace” algorithm into their angry little snowflake robot brains, because their kung-fu sucks and most of them don’t realize they’re acting like twats.
The liberal MSM is overt propaganda – and the next generation of voters knows what’s up:
Thanks to the WSJ led assault on PewDiePie – in which they called a lovable guy with over 50 million fans a Nazi and vomited forth a heavily edited a video with no context, Generation Z knows they’re being lied to. Oops!
The most recent lie is of course Sweden – which the MSM and Swedish government has repeatedly claimed is A-OK, yet a different picture emerges when people pop over to Zerohedge, Breitbart, iBankCoin, Twitter and YouTube to follow “boots on the ground” journalists like Tim Pool who’s being chased around the country by riotous Muslims issuing death threats. Result; the MSM opposition party is once again exposed – both their narrative and reputations have been utterly destroyed.

The DNC, Globalists, and their MSM mouthpieces have lost control, and the left – what’s left of it, continues to double down on hate and vitriol like petulant children. There’s an entire generation of kids about to vote in the next few election cycles who are now fully up to speed, and are smart enough to let facts inform their opinion. If only the rest of the “progressive” movement would follow their example…
Following Trump’s very Presidential speech to congress – which pundits on the left are having a hell of a time criticizing, equities are soaring. In particular, coal stocks, private prisons, and of course – Harley Davidson are on fire after being singled out by the President for growth.
I just met with officials and workers from a great American company, Harley-Davidson. In fact, they proudly displayed five of their magnificent motorcycles, made in the USA, on the front lawn of the White House.
We have undertaken a historic effort to massively reduce job‑crushing regulations, creating a deregulation task force inside of every Government agency; imposing a new rule which mandates that for every 1 new regulation, 2 old regulations must be eliminated; and stopping a regulation that threatens the future and livelihoods of our great coal miners.
To protect our citizens, I have directed the Department of Justice to form a Task Force on Reducing Violent Crime.
I am going to bring back millions of jobs. Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration. The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.
Is it any wonder stocks are off to the races today?
And let’s see how Harley Davidson ($HOG), Coal stocks ($ARCH), and private prison stock CoreCivic ($CXW) are doing:
It should also be noted that Harley Davidson ($HOG) was flagged oversold by the iBankCoin Exodus algorithm 4 trading sessions ago, and CoreCivic was flagged overbought 5 trading sessions ago. While it may seem intuitive that OB = going down and OS = going up, that’s not always the case – and you have to look under the hood. Many times, stocks climb a wall of worry – and Exodus keeps careful track of performance once signals are thrown. You can see that after just 7 days, Harley Davidson ($HOG) has gone up an average of 5.78% 7 out of 7 times, while CoreCivic’s ($CXW) overbought has gone up an average of 3.29% 6 out of 9 times.
When analyzing an investment in Exodus based on these indicators, it’s important to note the % of times up, the average return, and the number of days held since the flag was thrown. While no single indicator should be solely relied upon for an investment decision, it’s helpful to know how stocks have performed following a flag in the system.
