It’s amazing that they can’t even frame Trump competently!:
Here we go — the Trump Russia canard is crumbling so the media has drummed up another fake scandal to harass President Trump.\
Alva Johnson, 43, a former staffer to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign claims he kissed her without consent at a small gathering just before a Florida rally, an encounter she says still haunts her and causes her anguish.
And she wants money!
The Washington Post reported:
In interviews with The Washington Post, and in the lawsuit, Alva Johnson said Trump grabbed her hand and leaned in to kiss her on the lips as he exited an RV outside the rally in Tampa on Aug. 24, 2016. Johnson said she turned her head and the unwanted kiss landed on the side of her mouth, which she called “super-creepy and inappropriate.” “I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” she said. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.” Johnson said she told her boyfriend, mother and stepfather about the incident later that day, an account all three confirmed to The Post. Two months later, Johnson consulted a Florida attorney about the unwanted kiss; he gave The Post text messages showing that he considered her “credible” but did not take her case for business reasons. The attorney gave Johnson the name of a therapist, whose notes, which The Post reviewed, reference an unspecified event during the campaign that had left her distraught.
The White House responded to the allegations.
In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed Johnson’s allegation as “absurd on its face.”
“This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts,” she wrote.
Alva Johnson said she’s a registered Democrat who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and in 2012 — but became interested in the Trump campaign because of a politically active Republican family member.
Alva Johnson was so traumatized that she attended one of the inaugural balls and twice applied for jobs in the Trump administration.
Dagny: Not very attractive either if you ask me:
Cortez Goes Power Mad:
“I’m at least trying and they’re not,” AOC said of her Green New Deal critics. “If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power, you’re driving the agenda, you’re doing all this stuff.”
“Like, I just introduced Green New Deal two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else is even trying — because no one else has even tried!”
AOC clapped back at her critics, “I’m like you try! You do it! Cuz you’re not!” AOC said pointing her finger.
“So until you do it, I’M THE BOSS! How about that?” AOC yelled.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) not only wants to control how many hamburgers Americans eat, she’s now lecturing young people to reconsider having children because of climate change (hoax).
Ocasio-Cortez posted a kitchen hangout to her Instagram account Sunday night where she actually questioned if it is “moral” to have children.
Leftists are eugenicists and they don’t even hide it anymore.
“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping food. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”
“The lack of urgency is going to kill us,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

Meeting for breakfast with our Nation’s Governors - then off to Vietnam for a very important Summit with Kim Jong Un. With complete Denuclearization, North Korea will rapidly become an Economic Powerhouse. Without it, just more of the same. Chairman Kim will make a wise decision!
I hope our great Republican Senators don’t get led down the path of weak and ineffective Border Security. Without strong Borders, we don’t have a Country - and the voters are on board with us. Be strong and smart, don’t fall into the Democrats “trap” of Open Borders and Crime!
Former Senator Harry Reid (he got thrown out) is working hard to put a good spin on his failed career. He led through lies and deception, only to be replaced by another beauty, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer. Some things just never change! Nationwide Conceal Carry
At the moment, concealed carry permits are issued by individual states. For example, a permit issued in Mississippi, where gun regulations are relaxed, does not allow a person to carry a weapon in California, where gun laws are much stricter.
But a bill that would mean each state has to recognise another state’s permit, in the same way it does driving licenses, recently passed the House of Representatives and a version of the legislation is now being considered by the Senate. In 2013, a similar bill failed by three votes.

Many of the features of today’s crony politics and Venezuela’s implosion were foretold by Rand in her 1957 novel “Atlas Shrugged.” This 1,168-page “doorstopper” of a book has inspired many of us and explains the banality of Democratic class-envy rhetoric. I offer the following passage from “Atlas Shrugged” called “Francisco’s Money Speech.”
Entrepreneur Francisco d’Anconia is confronted at a party by a liberal interloper who indignantly murmurs, “Money is the root of all evil.”
“So you think that money is the root of all evil?” d’Anconia replies. “Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?
“When you accept money in payment for your work, you do so only on the conviction that you will exchange it for the product of the work of others. It is not the moochers or the looters who give value to money. Not an ocean of tears nor all the guns in the world can transform those pieces of paper in your wallet into the bread you will need to survive tomorrow. Those pieces of paper, which should have been gold, are a token of honor — your claim upon the energy of the men who produce. Your wallet is your statement of hope that somewhere in the world around you there are men who will not default on that moral principle which is the root of money. Is this what you consider evil?
“But you say that money is made by the strong at the expense of the weak? What strength do you mean? It is not the strength of guns or muscles. Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think. Then is money made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who did not invent it? Is money made by the intelligent at the expense of the fools? By the able at the expense of the incompetent? By the ambitious at the expense of the lazy? Money is made — before it can be looted or mooched — made by the effort of every honest man, each to the extent of his ability. An honest man is one who knows that he can’t consume more than he has produced.
“Money demands of you the recognition that men must work for their own benefit, not for their own injury, for their gain, not their loss — the recognition that they are not beasts of burden, born to carry the weight of your misery — that you must offer them values, not wounds — that the common bond among men is not the exchange of suffering but the exchange of goods. Money demands that you sell not your weakness to men’s stupidity but your talent to their reason; it demands that you buy not the shoddiest they offer but the best that your money can find. And when men live by trade — with reason, not force, as their final arbiter — it is the best product that wins, the best performance, the man of best judgment and highest ability, and the degree of a man’s productiveness is the degree of his reward. Is this what you consider evil?”

A Catholic Whistle-blower was apparently killed after she went public about sex trafficking by a close associate of the Pope.
Church Militant reports that Natacha Jaitt died two weeks before she was scheduled to give court testimony against Gustavo Vera, whom she accused of sex trafficking.
Ciudad Magazine reports the investigation of the tragic death of Natacha Jaitt (41), who was found dead at dawn on Saturday 23, in a complex for events of La Ñata, Benavídez, generated new hypotheses. Although the autopsy is still ongoing and the cause of death is not known with determination, a police doctor who went to the scene of the death informed that Natacha “does not show signs of external violence, having been his death a possible cerebrovascular accident produced for the ingestion of alcohol and cocaine. ”
“THEY FOUND DRUG DISCARDED IN A SEWER, AS IF SOMEONE HAD RUN AWAY FROM THE PLACE AND THROWN AWAY THE DRUG, THEY KIDNAPPED A MOTORCYCLE AND A VERY IMPORTANT CELL PHONE.”
After her appearance on Mirtha Legrand’s talk show and the resulting controversy over her accusations against Vera, Jaitt tweeted, “Notice: I will not commit suicide. I won’t be bought off or drown in a bath tub, nor will I shoot myself in the head. So, if that happens: I wasn’t me. Save this tweet.”
US Supreme Court: Dead Appeals Judges Can't Vote
Judge Reinhardt died while in office. All the cases he participated in prior to death, the 9th circuit released rulings on with his name. SCOTUS ruled what they did was unlawful. A log list of 2017 and 2018 cases are being send to other districts. See .PDF for list of cases.
