He Who Gigglefits Last Gigglefits Best

Nancy Pelosi got whipsawed today. 
Before her weekly press conference, the letter President Trump sent to North Korea’s Kim Jong Un informing him he had canceled the June 12 summit in Singapore reached members of Congress and was being widely reported across all news outlets.
When she took the lectern, she was queried about the news.  She said the North Korean leader was the “big winner”.  Pelosi said, “I think it’s a good thing for Kim Jong Un. Here you had a thug, a person who killed his own family members, a person who runs a police state, being legitimized by the President of the United States. They were on par with each other. He got global recognition and regard. He’s the big winner. When he got this letter from the president saying ‘OK, never mind’—he must be having a giggle fit right there in North Korea.”
She added, “This takes preparation. This takes knowledge. This takes judgment. And clearly it takes preparation, which the President didn’t make. It’s clear he didn’t know what he was getting into, and now he’s walking away from it in this very chummy, palsy-walsy letter to Kim Jong Un. He, Kim Jong Un, is the big winner. It’s unfortunate because as you say you want to be optimistic.”
Around 7:00 PM reports were coming in that Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-Gwan had issued a statement in response to the President’s letter vowing to continue to pursue peace and signaled it would give Washington more time to consider talks.
“Our goal and will is to do everything for peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and mankind remains unchanged and we are always willing to give an opportunity to the U.S. side with a big and open mind.  We express our intent that there is willingness to sit at any time, in any way to resolve issues.”

You Can Meet Me In Singapore Now Or You Can Meet My Little Friends Later

While The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer prioritized stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, he failed to consider Russia, China and North Korea as threats and maintained the United States shouldn’t build any new nuclear weapons. 
The last time America’s nuclear posture was reviewed was in 2010.  In the eight years since the world has changed dramatically.  Russia has emerged as a serious adversary, China began a massive land grab in the South China Sea and North Korea has developed and launched test missiles at an ever-increasing pace.
Mutually assured destruction from nuclear powers terrifies us all.  Most of us envision silos with massive ICBMs.  Yes, those still exist but a new class of smaller nuclear weapons comprise our arsenal.
The proliferation of precision-guided low-yield nuclear weapons now means that smaller explosives hitting closer to targets preclude the need for massive nuclear explosions that would almost certainly, in any use case, kill civilians.
The Washington Times reported today that North Korea stood up U.S. officials in Singapore who waited for three days to take a meeting that was intended to set the stage for the now-canceled summit.
The snub was but one part of a “trail of broken promises” and a “strange lack of judgment” by the hermit kingdom that led to President Trump canceling the summit today.
Like the old Fram oil filter commercials of the late 70’s where a car repairman warns, “You can pay me now or you can pay me later,” President Trump said during his remarks before signing into law the bill that rolls back the onerous Dodd-Frank bill, that he had spoken with Defense Secretary James Mattis who assured him the U.S. military is “ready if necessary” if “foolish or reckless acts” are taken by North Korea.  He held out hope the summit would get back on track adding, “Nobody should be anxious.  We have to get it right.”

Can’t Wait To Find Something New On Netflix?

Netflix announced on Monday that it had formed a “storytelling partnership” with the Obamas. The multi-year agreement paves the way for the Obamas to produce anything from scripted series to documentaries and features.
“We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world,” the former President said in a statement.
Netflix’s content chief Ted Sarandos said in a statement that the Obamas are “uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better.”
According to Fortune, some Netflix users have complained that the move could turn political and have voiced their concerns. A day after the news was announced many people are still taking to Twitter to say they’re canceling their subscriptions.
For its part, Netflix declined Fortune‘s request for comment on the complaints and instead said it had nothing more to share beyond its statement on Monday. It’s also worth noting that Twitter complaints do not necessarily translate to subscriptions. And since Netflix has 125 million memberships to its streaming service, it’s unlikely the number of cancellations will put a dent in that number.  Hmmm.
It's not the first time Netflix has faced conservative backlash. In March,  The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer’s UN Ambassador Susan Rice joined the Netflix board of directors. Some subscribers were outraged because of inaccurate statements Rice made in 2012 after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings was critical of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Hastings endorsed Hillary Clinton and said, "Trump would destroy much of what is great about America."  Double hmmm.

If eight years wasn’t enough for you America…welcome to Obama’s Ministry of Propaganda.
A NOTE FROM OUR ATTORNEY:  The screenshot above is a Photoshop™.  Not real.  But then, you knew that unless you’re reading this with your therapy ferret.

The Mentally Deficient Ramblings Of Someone Who Is Reliving The Same Day Over And Over And Over Again

The forecast for New Haven, CT on Sunday called for rain, so the Yale Class Day festivities were moved from the Old Campus to Woolsey Hall.
The Ivy League school called upon one of its alumna to speak to the Class of 2018.  The alumna was none other than Granny Clinton─the pathetic shrew who gave Putin a reset button, got wrecked in the 2016 Presidential Election and now suffers from Stockholm Syndrome.
As I mentioned above, the forecast called for rain.  So, the dreariness of the day was intensified by an equally dreary speaker who spoke for an hour about losing.
“Right now, we’re living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy,” Granny said during her Class Day speech. “No, there are not tanks in the streets, but what’s happening right now goes to the heart of who we are as a nation, and I say this not as a Democrat who lost an election but as an American afraid of losing a country.”
“There are certain things that are so essential they should transcend politics. Waging a war on the rule of law and a free press, de-legitimizing elections, perpetrating shameless corruption and rejecting the idea that our leaders should be public servants undermines our national unity. And attacking truth and reason, evidence and facts should alarm us all.”
Congratulations on your graduation, Yalies.  Enjoy!
The Ice Cube In Heels at first made light of her searing election loss. “I am thrilled for all of you, even the three of you who live in Michigan and didn’t request your absentee ballots in time,” she said. She also poked fun at the investigation of Russian meddling in the election. It is a Class Day tradition for the seniors to wear silly, imaginative headgear and Clinton held up a Russian ushanka hat saying, “I brought a hat too—a Russian hat. Look, I mean, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!”
Her second run at the presidency didn’t work out, her book sales flopped and now she’s trying her hand at standup comedy?
Please run again Hillary. 
Your sour-grapes-fueled pity party lacks any shred of humor.  Can you imagine anything less inspiring than the mentally deficient ramblings of someone who is reliving the same day over and over and over again with her clumsy, lame attempts at humor and her forced folksy references?

Crush Iran: The Strategy We Should Have Pursued All Along

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered his first major foreign policy address saying Monday the United States is prepared to level the strongest sanctions in history on Iran if its government does not reverse course on its nuclear ambitions.
Two weeks ago, President Trump withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) because its fatal flaws failed to guarantee the safety of the American people.
The JCPOA, Pompeo said, “permitted the Iranian regime to use the money from the JCPOA to boost the economic fortunes of a struggling people, but the regime’s leaders refused to do so. Instead, the government spent its newfound treasure fueling proxy wars across the Middle East and lining the pockets of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Houthis.”
“We should remember, too, that during the JCPOA Iran continues to hold Americans hostage: Baquer Namazi, Siamak Namazi, Xiyue Wang and Bob Levinson who has been missing for over 11 years,” continued Pompeo.
Later in his speech at the Heritage Foundation the Secretary of State said, “It is clear that the JCPOA has not ended Iran’s nuclear ambitions, nor did it deter its quest for a regional hegemony. Iran’s leaders saw the deal as the starting gun for the march across the Middle East.”
Then came the diplomatic body slam of demands on Iran:
First, Iran must declare to the IAEA a full account of the prior military dimensions of its nuclear program, and permanently and verifiably abandon such work in perpetuity.
Second, Iran must stop enrichment and never pursue plutonium reprocessing. This includes closing its heavy water reactor.
Third, Iran must also provide the IAEA with unqualified access to all sites throughout the entire country.
Iran must end its proliferation of ballistic missiles and halt further launching or development of nuclear-capable missile systems.
Iran must release all U.S. citizens, as well as citizens of our partners and allies, each of them detained on spurious charges.
Iran must end support to Middle East terrorist groups, including Lebanese Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Iran must respect the sovereignty of the Iraqi Government and permit the disarming, demobilization, and reintegration of Shia militias.
Iran must also end its military support for the Houthi militia and work towards a peaceful political settlement in Yemen.
Iran must withdraw all forces under Iranian command throughout the entirety of Syria.
Iran, too, must end support for the Taliban and other terrorists in Afghanistan and the region, and cease harboring senior al-Qaida leaders.
Iran must end the IRG Quds Force’s support for terrorists and militant partners around the world.
Iran must end its threatening behavior against its neighbors many of whom are U.S. allies. This certainly includes its threats to destroy Israel, and its firing of missiles into Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. It also includes threats to international shipping and destructive cyberattacks.
The list is long. Neither President Trump nor Secretary of State Pompeo created it, the mullahs did.
Pompeo made it clear this is America’s strategy. It’s the strategy we always should have pursued.

Codename: Crossfire Hurricane

Stefan Halper, Director of American Studies at Cambridge University and a partner at Cambridge Security Initiative along with former MI-6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove is the informant spook who provided information to the CIA and FBI for the Russia investigation before and after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment on May 17, 2017.
It has now been confirmed the Trump campaign was subjected to spying tactics via FISA surveillance, national security letters and covert intelligence operatives who work with the CIA and allied intelligence agencies.
CNN, NBC, The Washington Post and New York Times are more nervous than a virgin at a prison rodeo awaiting the release of the much-anticipated Department of Justice Inspector General’s report on the FBI and DOJ’s investigation and handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.
The Clinton report is expected to be followed by a third report on the IG’s investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application on Carter Page, a former volunteer for the Trump campaign. The IG announced this investigation in March.
The good Roger Simon bluntly wrote, “What is being exposed now is an attempt by our highest law enforcement agency working in concert with our intelligence agencies and, evidently, the blessing of the former administration itself to block the candidate of the opposing party, even to defraud and spy on him, that is to, as others have said, "set him up." And then, if they were unsuccessful, make it impossible for him to govern. In addition, in all probability, the same players conspired to make certain Hillary Clinton was not indicted for a crime for which virtually any other American would have done jail time.”
If all that made your blood boil, watch former U.S. Attorney General Joe di Genova predict what’s coming for Brennan and his friends in the press.

Where Oh Where Has My Context Been Taken?

Chuck "The Schmuck" Schumer never fails to entertain the electorate with his gleefully obtuse mischaracterizations of conservative opinions.  In his latest thigh slapper Schumer  destroys the entire contextual universe in order to accuse President Trump of insulting the great-great grandparents of millions of Americans. President Trump was actually talking about the savages who belong to the Salvadoran criminal organization known as MS-13.

Schumer naturally took the President's words and ran them through the prevaricator vortex.
NBC News icon Andrea Mitchell led the media-Democrat hit job on President Donald Trump over remarks he made about deporting illegal immigrant gang members, calling them “animals” when he was asked about MS-13 at an illegal immigration roundtable at the White House Wednesday. Mitchell and others falsely said Trump called all immigrants ‘animals’, with several equating Trump to Hitler. Well, despite EVEN the left-leaning AP deleting their “animals” tweet, Schumer is doubling down. Of course. 
This time, hilariously comparing all of our “great-great-grandparents” to MS-13 gang members. Twitter is not having it.

Schumer quote: "When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either.
I have several layers of immigrant great-great-grandparents; all of whom came to the US shortly after the Civil War.  My maternal great-grandmother's father was a minor French noble. My maternal great-grandfather's father was a crippled Irish shepard boy. My paternal great-great grandparents were both from Hungary.

I did a lot of research on Ancestory.com and although two people on my father's side did time in NYS prisons, *blush* absolutely no one raped, beheaded or dismembered a single soul. No one sold heroin or cocaine. Booze - well yeah - Prohibition and all that - but no drugs!

President Trump was not referring to my great-great-grandparents and only an uniformed idiot would think so.
