Definitely not CNN Fake News, genuine sad faces at Ossoff loss. Then you had potential Ossoff voters living in their parents' basement and on their parents' phone bill which made it harder for Democrat organizers to reach them. Republican parents didn't necessarily run down to the basement to help out the opposition-Rush Limbaugh, 6/21/17

CNN sad faces at Ossoff loss, 6/21/17





6/21/17, "My Bold Pajama Boy Prediction Comes True," Rush Limbaugh

"Somebody sent me a screenshot of CNN right after they had to project that Ossoff was gonna lose. It’s David Chalian, Gloria Borger, some guy I don’t know here, and Dana Bash, and I’m telling you, it is funereal, the look on their faces, utter despondency....

A Democrat consultant...Jessica Ziegler said to Slate.com   referring to the Republican parents of the young Democrats... “When you are targeting their child, or heaven forbid their child might not think the same way as them, it becomes ugly.

So now the parents of these Democrat kids living at home have become the targets of Democrat organizers. Jessica Ziegler, Those were the angriest people,” referring to Republican parents of the young Democrats who are impossible to reach ’cause they still live at home with Mom and Dad. “When you are targeting their child,” when Democrats are trying to reach their children, it becomes very, very ugly because their kids are Millennial Democrats and they’re voting in ways that Mom and Dad don’t agree with and don’t understand.

So Mom and Dad are helping shelter their own kids from Democrat outreach, making it harder for Democrats to reach potential Millennial voters because they’re still living at home and cannot be independently sought.

Ossoff, Pajama Boy
Ziegler, who has been quoted in a number of Slate articles and a NY Times piece, added that the police had even been called on Ossoff volunteers on a number of occasions. Ziegler focused on encouraging young voters to turn out by recruiting recent high school graduates to get in touch with their peers over social media.”

They’re lost. And now in the New York Times they’re openly complaining, “Our brand is worse than Trump’s.” Do you realize for a Democrat to say that, do you know how bottom of the barrel that is?"

Karen Handel thanked President Trump for his support of her campaign, prompting the crowd to interrupt with cheers and chants of "Trump, Trump, Trump"-CNN, 6/20/17

Voter turnout in April was already high for a spring special election, and it soared during the runoff, to more than 240,000, from more than 190,000. Nearly 150,000 voters cast ballots before the polls opened on Tuesday, nearly three times the early vote in the first round. And nearly 40,000 of those people had not voted at all in April.

"In this district, Donald Trump only topped Hillary Clinton in it by 1.5 percentage points." Handel won by 3.8% (see above) 

6/20/17, "Don't sugarcoat it--Ossoff's loss is a big disappointment, and a bad sign, for Democrats," Vox, Andrew Prokop

"Democrats need to outperform Hillary Clinton to take back the House. Ossoff did worse than her." [sic]...

"But it’s the Ossoff defeat that’s particularly painful for the party. Though former Rep. Tom Price (R) repeatedly cruised to victory in this district, Donald Trump only topped Hillary Clinton in it by 1.5 percentage points. This meant that, on the presidential level, the district was by far the most favorable to Democrats of those four open seats....

This race was indisputably the highest-profile contest, and therefore perhaps the most like what we’d expect the 2018 midterms to be — Republicans weren’t caught sleeping, like they were in a few of these other races.

Furthermore — and crucially — Donald Trump won the median House district by about 3.5 points. 

That means that if Republican candidates in high-profile contested races slightly outperform Trump or even slightly underperform him, the GOP will keep the House. Handel’s victory shows that, at this point, that’s still a definite possibility....

[Near end of article] Since Trump’s victory, there’s been a debate among Democrats about whether the party’s best chances for retaking power lie in improving their performance in areas full of educated, well-off white suburbanites, or whether the party is better off making a case to the white working class. To oversimplify, the Hillary Clinton wing of the party tends to like the former theory, and the Bernie Sanders wing tends to prefer the latter. 

Ossoff’s disappointing performance is a blow to the Clinton wing’s theory. Despite Trump’s sinking approval ratings, the Republican candidate still won an affluent suburban district that Trump himself barely pulled it out in. 

But the Sanders wing doesn’t have the clearest-cut counter-theory either. Sanders-friendly candidates like Rob Quist in Montana and James Thompson in Kansas have done better than Hillary Clinton did in their respective districts — but so did Archie Parnell, the former Goldman Sachs employee who lost the South Carolina race Tuesday night. 

All special elections are on different turf and have different issues and candidate dynamics at play. The one thing that is clear, though, is that Democrats haven’t found a winning formula for victory yet."

In 2012 Rockefeller Republican George Shultz endorsed a carbon tax--you were surprised? In 2010 'Republican Elder' Schultz partnered with Dem. Tom Steyer to defeat Calif. prop 23. Rockefeller Republicans are lifelong parasites devoted to preventing the Republican Party from being a party of the people-July 13, 2012, GlobalWarming.org

.
6/20/17, "Exxon, BP support Republican elders' climate proposal," Reuters, by Richard Valdmanis 

A carbon tax proposal co-authored by James Baker, Sec. of State for George H.W. Bush, and George Shultz ran as an advertisement in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday 6/20/17. The ad was paid for by the so-called Climate Leadership Council. Why in the name of God can't these people leave us alone? Are their lives so empty?

..................
 
7/13/2012, "George Shultz Endorses Carbon Tax – You Were Surprised?" GlobalWarming.org, Marlo Lewis

"This pattern is becoming boringly familiar....

There has always been a wing of the GOP — the “establishment,” “Country Club,” or “Rockefeller” Republicanswho care more about controlling the party than about advancing liberty or even about winning elections. AEI’s Ken Green (a colleague of Hassett’s) hits the nail on the head. In a story on Shultz’s endorsement of carbon taxes, Green told Climatewire: (subscrip):

There seems to be an eruption of conservatives — very moderate-seeming conservatives, non-tea party, old country club-style conservatives — who are suddenly enamored of carbon tax,” said Kenneth Green, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

“I think this is mostly vanity and egotism on the part of these people who are coming forward, to try and reassert the Republican establishment over the tea party revolution,” he added.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we have more of these guys weigh in.” (begin parag. 11)...

As noted here, earlier this week, former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) launched a new institute with Rockefeller Family Fund backing
[oil money] to promote carbon taxes as a ‘Republican idea.’...  

"Yes, that George Shultz, President Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of State. But not everyone who served with Reagan was a Reaganite. Reagan’s VP, G.H.W. Bush, famously campaigned on a platform of “Read my lips: No New Taxes.” Not two years later he raised taxes in a 1990 budget deal that torpedoed the economy and sank his presidency.

Yesterday, in an interview puff piece (July 12, 2012) penned by two associates, Shultz, a distinguished fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, called for a ‘revenue-neutral’ carbon tax. This is unsurprising. As the article reminds us,
in 2010, Schultz, partnering with Tom Steyer, a democrat, “led the successful campaign to defeat Proposition 23, a California ballot initiative to suspend the state’s ambitious law to curb greenhouse gases.”"...

11/8/2013, "The Sabotage Republicans," Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

If Establishment Republicans happen to win, they merely carry out the Democrat agenda. If they don't win the primary, they sabotage the choice of Republican voters. In 1964, Nelson Rockefeller "criss-crossed the nation" warning people of the danger of "extremists" like Barry Goldwater. The popular JFK had been assassinated less than a year earlier, his chosen VP LBJ was sworn in as president standing next to a blood spattered Jackie Kennedy (see photo below), and no one was going to beat JFK's VP. Goldwater's loss to LBJ was entirely predictable but is used to this day as "proof" that Establishment Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller were right. Sabotage by "fellow Republicans" prevents the US from having an opposition party to the Democrats. Meaning the US is a dictatorship.

 

11/22/1963, JFK's VP LBJ was sworn in as US president, a blood-spattered Jackie Kennedy beside him.

San Jose, Calif. gov. homeless policy leaves neighbors no choice but to build stronger wall to protect themselves from garbage, drug paraphernalia, and the consequence of their kids not being able to play outside-KPIX San Francisco...(US political class ongoing genocide of America and you're 'mean' if you don't like it)

.
June 19, 2017, "Crews Build Controversial ‘Homeless Wall’ In San Jose," KPIX San Francisco, John Ramos, San Jose

"Caltrans is building a taller, stronger wall in San Jose to stop homeless individuals from returning to an encampment.
 
Caltrans has repeatedly cleaned up the large encampment under I-280, but the homeless keep returning.

While this new solution has some homeowners pleased, it is generating a lot of anger in the community.

Laura Nunez, who has lived on Macredes Avenue in San Jose most of her life, said everything changed on her street when homeless people began using the rickety chain link fence at the end of the block as a doorway to their encampments along I-280.

“Every time Caltrans would come out and repair itas soon as they left they cut a hole in it and they just use that…that was their main access point to go in and out,” said Nunez. We’ve had to live with their garbage. We’ve had to live with drug paraphernalia. The kids haven’t been able come out to play. 

Caltrans and the city heard the neighbors’ complaints and on Monday, workers were out building a taller barrier at the freeway on-ramp and on Macredes Avenue.

Some critics are comparing the new wall to President Trump’s proposed border wall.

Jaime Foberg, the founder of “In Their Shoes” homeless advocacy said, “I think of Trump. And I think how horrible it is that they would keep people out. It really does make me sad.”"...

[Ed. note: US political class conducts genocide of America via garbage, drug paraphernalia, kids not being able to play outdoors, and if you object you're "mean."]

(continuing): "The new 8-foot-tall fence is rigid and much stronger, with smaller holes to make it difficult to cut or climb.

Neighbors hope it will make the campers move on, but those who work with the homeless argue the city is giving them nowhere else to go....

But Nunez says,Take them to your neighborhood and you live the way we’ve been living the past few years, and then you’ll sing a different tune after that.”

They say good fences make good neighbors. It will be interesting to see if that holds true once this one is completed.

Neighbors say there are about 60 people living at the homeless encampment. It’s believed most moved there after the city closed down the huge encampment known as “The Jungle” two years ago."

Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland say no thanks to poisoned Kool Aid, refuse to commit genocide of their own country by allowing flood of Muslim so-called refugees as ordered by EU genocide crew-Daily Caller

.
EU actions fit the definition of genocide as described by the term's creator, Raphael Lemkin: "Genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. 

It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of  culture, language national feelings, religion, and the  economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, 
liberty,  health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups."...


June 13, 2017, "EU Sues Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic For Not Taking Enough Muslim Refugees," Daily Caller, Jacob Bojesson, Foreign Correspondent

"The European Union launched legal action Tuesday against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic over their refusal to take refugees.
 
The case stems from a decision to relocate 160,000 migrants proportionally across the EU. Hungary and Poland have refused to take a single refugee under the plan while the Czech Republic let in 12.

EU is now launching infringement procedures, arguing the three countries are violating their obligations as member states.

“Regrettably, despite…repeated calls, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, in breach of their legal obligations stemming … and their commitments to Greece, Italy and other member states, have not yet taken the necessary action,” the European Commission said in a statement. “Against this background…the Commission has decided to launch infringement procedures against these three Member States.”

The European Court of Justice will decide whether the countries failed to meet their obligations. A financial penalty may be imposed if the countries continue to refuse the quotas after a ruling in favor of the EU.

Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said his country has no intention to reverse its immigration policies any time soon. 

With regard to the worsened security situation in Europe and dysfunctionality of the quota system, it will not participate in it,” Sobotka said after EU’s announcement, according to Reuters."

Illegal alien from El Salvador murders 17 year old Muslim girl with baseball bat and dumps her body in a pond in Virginia-ABC News

.
"ICE said in a statement Monday that they have filed a detainer on Torres, a citizen of El Salvador, for potential deportation as he is believed to be in the U.S. illegally."

Torres, illegal alien from El Salvador
June 19, 2017, "Police say road rage incident led to the death of Virginia Muslim teen," ABC News, Karma Allen, Courtney Connley 

"Virginia police believe a road rage incident led to the death of the 17-year-old Muslim girl whose body was found near a mosque [article later says killer dumped her in a pond], officials said in a press conference Monday evening.

The body found in a Virginia pond Sunday has been identified as 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen of Reston, Virginia, officials confirmed Monday. Hassanen went missing earlier in the day Sunday after she and her friends left a mosque, according to police. Fairfax County police confirmed Monday that they are not investigating the case as a hate crime.

"Based on the information our detectives have at this point, there is no indication that this was a hate-bias motivated-related crime," police said. "If that changes as the investigation progresses, we would certainly pursue that aspect."

Julie Parker, director of media relations for Fairfax County police, said in Monday's press conference that the incident started early Sunday around 3:40 a.m. local time when a group of about 15 teens were walking in Fairfax County to get some food after participating at an overnight event at the ADAMS center (All Dulles Area Muslim Society). Parker said detectives believe the suspect drove up to the teens when a male teen on a bike started arguing with him.

The suspect, who has been identified as Darwin Martinez Torres, then drove up on a curb and the group of teens ran, said Parker. She added that detectives believe Torres became enraged from the argument when he got out of his car and began chasing the group with a bat. He caught Hassanen and hit her with the bat before taking her in his car to a second unidentified location in Loudon County, said Parker.

 Hassanen, whose body was found in a pond around 3 p.m. Sunday in Sterling, Virginia, died from blunt force trauma to the upper body, Parker said. 

Nabra Hassanen, 17, dead
Fairfax County police arrested Torres, 22, of Sterling around 5:15 a.m. and charged him with murder in connection with the case. Torres was arraigned Monday morning and held without bail, according to an official at the Fairfax County courthouse. It is unclear if he entered a plea and it was not immediately made clear whether he had obtained an attorney.

Police said they looked into whether the killing was a hate crime, but said they found no indication “that this was a bias incident.” Officials do believe Torres acted alone, and are not looking to arrest any other suspects.

ICE said in a statement Monday that they have filed a detainer on Torres, a citizen of El Salvador, for potential deportation as he is believed to be in the U.S. illegally.

The ADAMS center in Sterling, where the teens are believed to have been attending an overnight event, released a statement in regards to Hassanen's death.

“We are devastated and heartbroken as our community undergoes and processes this traumatic event,” the center said in a statement."... 

The investigation of the case is ongoing and said the case may be prosecuted in Loudon County instead of Fairfax County because of elements of the crime and where they occurred."...

FBI offered $50,000 to author of 'Golden Showers' anti-Trump dossier in early October 2016 to keep investigating Mr. Trump-NY Times, Washington Times, April 2017

. 
Mr. Steele, author of the 'Golden Showers' anti-Trump dossier "met his F.B.I. contact in Rome in early October (2016), bringing a stack of new intelligence reports....The agent said that if Mr. Steele could get solid corroboration of his reports, the F.B.I. would pay him $50,000 for his efforts....Ultimately he was not paid."...

April 25, 2017, "Ex-spy admits anti-Trump dossier unverified, blames Buzzfeed for publishing," Washington Times, Rowan Scarborough

"Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the infamous anti-Donald Trump ['Golden Showers'] dossier, acknowledges that a sensational charge his sources made about a tech company CEO and Democratic Party hacking is unverified.

In a court filing, Mr. Steele also says his accusations against the president and his aides about a supposed Russian hacking conspiracy were never supposed to be made public, much less posted in full on a website for the world to see on Jan. 10.

He defends himself by saying he was betrayed by his client and that he followed proper internal channels by giving the dossier to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to alert the U.S. government.


Mr. Steele has not spoken publicly about his disputed opposition research project, but for the first time he is being forced to talk in a London court through his attorneys.

Barristers for Mr. Steele and his Orbis Business Intelligence firm filed their first defense against a defamation lawsuit brought by Aleksej Gubarev, chief executive of the network solutions firm
XBT Holdings.

Mr. Steele acknowledges that the part of the 35-page dossier that identified Mr. Gubarev as a rogue hacker came from “unsolicited intelligence” and “raw intelligence” that “needed to be analyzed and further investigated/verified.
 
Democrats in Washington have embraced the unproven dossier as an argument for appointing a high- powered commission to investigate President Trump and his aides.

In his final December (2016) dossier memo — his 16th — Mr. Steele accused Mr. Gubarev and his web-hosting companies of hacking the Democratic Party computer networks with pornography and bugging devices. Mr. Gubarev calls the charge fiction and filed a lawsuit in February.

Mr. Steele’s court filing portrays him as a victim of Fusion GPS--the Washington firm that hired him with money from a Hillary Clinton backer.

Fusion specializes in opposition research for Democrats and circulated the Steele dossier among reporters in an effort to injure the Trump candidacy and presidency. Mr. Steele said he never authorized Fusion to do that.

“The defendants did not provide any of the pre-election memoranda to media organizations or journalists. Nor did they authorize anyone to do so,” Mr. Steele said through his attorney. “Nor did they provide the confidential December memorandum to media organizations or journalists. Nor did they authorize anyone to do so.”

“At all material times Fusion was subject to an obligation not to disclose to third parties confidential intelligence material provided” by Mr. Steele and his firm Orbis, the court filing reads.

Mr. Steele personally signed the seven-page filing. He is represented by two London barristers who specialize in defamation cases: Gavin Millar and Edward Craven.

Mr. Steele says the ultimate responsibility lies with BuzzFeed, the liberal news website whose editor, Ben Smith, decided to post the entire 35 pages — memos from June to December — on Jan. 10 even though Mr. Smith said he doubted the far-flung accusations were true.

That momentous web posting sent Mr. Steele into hiding. He re-emerged March 7 in London, made a brief statement to the press and went inside his Orbis office.

The Steele dossier’s major charge is that the Trump campaign entered into an elaborate conspiracy with Russian agents to hack Democratic Party computers.

The Trump White House denies the charge, as do at least four people whom Mr. Steele's unidentified sources accused of breaking the law.

The final Steel memo in December targets Mr. Gubarev and Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s personal attorney.

That memo, after accusing Mr. Gubarev, then recounts from previous memos a supposed trip Mr. Cohen took to Prague in late August to meet with Russian agents and devise a plan to cover up the purported Trump team’s role in the hacking.

Mr. Cohen calls the dossier “fabricated.” He has shown that he was in California at the time and has never been to Prague. He told The Washington Times that he has instructed his attorneys to investigate a lawsuit against Mr. Steele.

The fact that Mr. Steele acknowledges that he put unverified “raw intelligence” into his December memo casts further doubt on his research techniques for the entire 35-page dossier.

Although Mr. Steele portrays himself as a victim of Fusion and BuzzFeed, he acknowledges in his court filing that he provided “off-the-record briefings to a small number of journalists about the pre-election memoranda in late summer/autumn 2016.”

The narration of the involvement of Mr. McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a vocal critic of Mr. Trump, reads like a spy novel.

Andrew Wood is a former British ambassador to Moscow and is an associate at the Orbis firm. After the Nov. 8 presidential election, Mr. Wood met with Mr. McCain and David J. Kramer, a former assistant secretary of state who is director of human rights and democracy at The McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University. By that time, Mr. Steele had written 15 memos for the dossier.

As a result, Mr. Wood arranged for Mr. Kramer to meet with Mr. Steele “in order to show him the pre-election memoranda on a confidential basis,” the court filing says. The meeting occurred on Nov. 28 in Surrey, England.

“Mr. Kramer told [Mr. Steele] the intelligence he had gathered raised issues of potential national security importance,” the court filing says.

Mr. Kramer returned to Washington, and Fusion agreed to give a hard copy of the dossier to Mr. McCain “on a confidential basis via Mr. Kramer,” according to the filing.

Mr. McCain then asked Mr. Steele, through Mr. Kramer, to provide any additional information on Russian interference in the election. U.S. intelligence officially has concluded that Russia directed a hacking operation into Democratic Party email servers and orchestrated the release of stolen emails via WikiLeaks to help the Trump campaign.

Mr. McCain has confirmed publicly that he personally turned over the dossier to FBI Director James B. Comey. But at that time, the FBI already had obtained the dossier from other sources and had been using it to investigate the supposed Trump-Russia connection.

Afterward, Mr. Steele continued to receive “raw intelligence,” including the Gubarev accusations. He wrote the December memo after his work for Fusion had ended.

He provided that memo to British national security officials and to Fusion through an “enciphered email,” with instructions to provide a copy to Mr. McCain.

The court filing says Mr. Steele has worked with Fusion for “a number of years” and was hired in June to begin investigating Mr. Trump. It was in June when the Democratic National Committee disclosed publicly that it had been hacked and its cybersleuths singled out Russia as the likely culprit.

Mr. Steele does not mention another American contact he made: The New York Times reported that the FBI, during an October meeting in Rome, offered him $50,000 to continue investigating Mr. Trump. Presumedly, Mr. Steele would continue to investigate the president as a surrogate for the FBI. The deal, however, did not go through."...

4/22/17, "Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. from Politics. Then He Shaped an Election." NY Times, Matt Apuzzo, Michael S. Schmidt, Adam Goldman, Eric Lichtblau

(subhead): ‘Exceptional Circumstances’...

(parag. 7): Just a few weeks later, in late September (2016), Mr. Steele, the former British agent, finally heard back from his contact at the F.B.I. It had been months, but the agency wanted to see the material he had collected “right away,” according to a person with knowledge of the conversation. What prompted this message remains unclear.

Mr. Steele met his F.B.I. contact in Rome in early October (2016), bringing a stack of new intelligence reports....

The agent said that if Mr. Steele could get solid corroboration of his reports, the F.B.I. would pay him $50,000 for his efforts, according to two people familiar with the offer. Ultimately, he was not paid."...]

(continuing): "Some Republicans have questioned why the FBI would try to put a Democratic-paid opposition researcher on the payroll, especially one who produced a dossier that remains unproven. The Times said the FBI wanted Mr. Steele to provide more proof of his charges.

Mr. Gubarev also is suing BuzzFeed for libel in Florida, where XBT has an office and where his firm Webzilla is incorporated. The lawsuit calls BuzzFeed’s posting “one of the most reckless and irresponsible moments in modern journalism.”"

Trump admin. still runs on skeleton staff, vast majority of key positions are unfilled. Many Obama holdovers remain in White House and especially Nat. Security Council-Spengler, David P. Goldman...(Elected to drain the swamp, Trump instead has added to it, thus putting all Americans in danger. He even agreed with them that Putin hacked the election, so he thinks he's in office by fraud)

.
June 16, 2017, "The lawyers’ civil war," David P. Goldman (Spengler), Asia Times

"Trump is under siege by shock troops from the left and right an illegal and unconstitutional mutiny, says Spengler."...

"The attempted massacre this week of Republican Congressmen and their staff by a deranged partisan of Sen. Bernie Sanders turned up the heat a notch, but it would be mistaken to attribute much importance to this dreadful outburst of left-wing rage. The augury of American fracture will not be street violence, but a constitutional crisis implicating virtually the whole of America’s governing caste. The shock troops in the cold civil war are not gunmen but lawyers....

Podesta and his gang at the DNC used unethical and perhaps illegal means to sandbag the campaign of Sen. Sanders, leaks about which embarrassed Hillary Clinton. Sanders, knowing on which side his bread is buttered, declined to make an issue of the sandbagging, allowing Trump’s enemies to transform what should have been an investigation of corruption in the Democratic Party into a fairy-tale about Russian spies stealing an American election with implied collusion by the Trump campaign.

The Trump-Russia collusion story is nonsense, as its disseminators know better than anyone else. The object of the exercise is not to support the innuendo, but to launch an investigation which can provoke the White House into responses that might be construed as illegal.

The intelligence leaks involved in framing the story alone are probably sufficient grounds to put several dozen senior officials in federal prison for double-digit terms. That consideration gauges the scale of the problem: the mutineers have committed multiple felonies, and their downside should the mutiny go wrong is not ignominious retirement but hard time at Leavenworth.

For the moment, the mutineers have the momentum. The Trump administration continues to run on a skeleton staff, with the vast majority of key positions still unoccupied. If my surmise is correct, it was unable to persuade the director of the FBI, the nation’s chief watchdog, to undertake vigorous countermeasures against the mutiny, for example, a comprehensive screening of electronic communications by the reporters who received leaks of classified materials.

Most mainstream journalists consider Trump a threat to a desirable social order and are not squeamish about the means they might employ to undermine him. And there are any number of former Obama appointees, for example, former US Attorney for New York’s Southern District Preet Bharara, prepared to convict the president in the media.

Bharara claimed earlier this month that “there’s absolutely evidence to begin a case” for obstruction of justice against Trump, although he allowed that as a private citizen he had no access to the evidence.

The White House and in particular the National Security Council meanwhile remain riddled with Obama Administration holdovers, forcing Trump to rely on a close circle of trusted advisers. That limits the president’s ability to reach out for allies against the mutineers.

The installation of former FBI director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to chase the Russian McGuffin also constrains the counterintelligence operations of the White House. If senior intelligence officials claim to be engaged in counterintelligence investigations against Russian interference in US elections, is it obstruction of justice to investigate their illegal contacts with the media?

The mutineers also can count on the support of Establishment worthies like Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), for whom Trump’s election was an intolerable humiliation. Trump ran against the Bush wing of the Republican Party as much as he ran against the Democrats.

The NeverTrump Republicans are complicit in the destruction of Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and the Sudan, and would have wrecked Egypt had Gen. al-Sisi not overthrown a Muslim Brotherhood government that the Establishment Republicans helped incubate.

The President’s free-wheeling style, more suited to the management of a family business than the Executive Branch, makes minor missteps more likely. Minor missteps are dangerous when a desperate and determined enemy is ready to exploit them. 

Trump’s one great advantage in all of this is that he has done nothing wrong. He did not obstruct justice because there is no crime. The mutineers’ only hope is to provoke him to take actions which might be construed as obstruction of justice in an investigation with no crime and no victim. Still, it is a moment of great danger for the American Republic.
 
The mutiny has burned its bridges on the beach, and its perpetrators will risk everything to make it succeed. Whatever the outcome, the legitimacy of a political system designed to be litigious and oppositional will be called into question, and the polarization of American opinion will become more rather than less extreme."

We don't need unity, we need robust, civilized disunity in which people can debate and disagree without being beaten or shot. The left doesn't want this, it wants to prevent debate. Simply put, the left has to be willing to engage in debate with people that disagree with them-Mark Steyn, June 14, 2017

.
6/14/17, Mark Steyn: "We don’t actually need unity. We need robust, civilized disunity — people honestly recognizing that they disagree with each other on health care, on immigration, on Islam, on transgender bathrooms, and a bazillion other things, but that doesn’t make the other person a hater. Simply put, the left has to be willing to actually engage in debate with people that disagree with them....They don’t want to win the debate. They want to prevent the debate from taking place....You’re basically saying, there is no form of civilized political discourse possible....Instead you riot and you beat them up, as they do at Middlebury....Or you open fire on them. You make politics impossible if you do that.”...

6/10/2016, "I’m voting for Donald Trump, so I went to see him speak. Protesters broke my nose." Washington Post, Juan Hernandez, Santa Clara, Calif.

Blood on shirt and hat
"Last Thursday, I left work about 5 p.m. and drove to the San Jose Convention Center to hear Donald Trump speak.

 I’ve been voting for conservative candidates for 15 years and a registered Republican since 2015.

 Now that the general election is underway, I believe Trump is the best candidate to fix our country’s many problems, and I believe he’s going to be the next commander in chief. So I was excited to hear him, and to show my support. Walking into the rally with a friend, I was a little wary: Trump’s speech to the California Republican convention in Burlingame had been disrupted by protesters, and I wasn’t sure whether to expect a similar scene in San Jose. But we got to the event early, and we must have been inside already by the time a crowd of protesters gathered in the streets near the convention center. 

The speech really got me energized. I got a new sense of appreciation and respect for Trump after a Bernie Sanders supporter interrupted him with a sign. Trump didn’t blink:

“Darling, there’s no way he can win, but keep your sign high,” he said. That is the president that I want. It was great being around so many Republicans — in the Bay Area, we don’t have a lot of that, so it was great to feel the camaraderie of being part of the GOP. 

My trouble began once the rally was over. 

My friend and I joined a crowd of Trump supporters who had all left the convention center around the same time. The garage where we had parked our car was right next to the building, but police were directing everyone around the block to another garage entrance instead. The farther we walked, the fewer Trump fans were with us — people began peeling off to go to restaurants or bars in the area, or to other garages nearby. 

And suddenly, there were protesters everywhere. Some were holding Mexican flags, or burning American ones. They were yelling “F— Trump!” at us and cornering us. Some of them started grabbing Trump supporters — they were going up and slugging people, sucker-punching people, just picking random people out. As much as we wanted to help, because our fellow Republicans were getting hit, I knew any moment that could be me.

So my friend and I just kept walking — sometimes, we’d be running. We saw police standing nearby, but they didn’t do anything. That scared me, because I thought, “Okay, if I’m next, there’s going to be no cops.”

 About a block from the garage entrance, we turned down the street and found a line of protesters standing in our way. To get back to our car, we'd have to go through them. My friend and I were wearing “Make America Great Again” Trump hats. We were targets, and I was terrified. I could feel it coming — they would look at me and start walking up to me. 

Before we could make it into the garage, four or five men surrounded me, and another four surrounded my friend. They just started swinging. We swung back as best as we could. My main thing was I didn’t want to fall; I didn’t want to be knocked down. 

I’m not a big guy, but I can defend myself as best I can if it’s one on one — but not when they have so much anger against us. One of the blows caught my nose, and blood just started pouring out. That kind of stunned them, and they backed off a quick second. My adrenaline kicked in; I felt punches on my head, and I felt the punch that hit my nose, but I was in survival mode by then, and I didn’t realize until later how much it hurt. I called my friend, “Okay, let’s go!” 

We ran into the parking garage, and we thought we were safe, but there were another few dozen protesters there, too. We got in our car and headed toward the exit. Some protesters jumped on the cars in front of us, but we eventually made it out. My friend drove me to the emergency room because my nose was pouring blood. I had a broken nose, and because I was covered with scratches, I had to get a tetanus shot, too. It took a lot out of me, much more than I realized at first; my headaches and soreness didn’t start to go away until a week later.

After nose broken
I still can’t believe how poorly the police handled the protests. I live by Levi’s Stadium, where the Super Bowl was. They had every single cop out there. Yet knowing the violence that’s been breaking out near Trump rallies, San Jose wasn’t prepared for it last week? So the Los Angeles chapter of Log Cabin Republicans held a news conference back in San Jose on Wednesday, to get some answers from the city’s mayor, Sam Liccardo, and its police department about why they let me and other people get attacked and only made a few arrests. 

The whole thing made me angry. Here in Northern California, I feel like I’m a unicorn: I’m a gay Hispanic who’s a Republican. It was much harder to come out as a Trump supporter than it was to come out as gay— the minute you say you’re for Trump, everyone comes at you — but this has pushed me out of the closet about it completely. 

I should be able to vote for whom I want, and I shouldn’t have to deal with violence to go hear my candidate speak. If people really want to protest at rallies, they should do it peacefully. I have a young niece and nephew, and I don’t want them to think this is how politics work in the United States. We can’t let our freedom of speech and our freedom of assembly be tarnished by politicians like those in San Jose who do not have our safety at heart."
