    Every allegation made against Trump was proven false by the details given by those making them.

    Similar to what happened with Moore.

    Hard evidence of collusion to sway the election is in fact piling up – against Obama, Clinton and the Democrats:

    The FBI’s Trump ‘Insurance’
    More troubling evidence of election meddling at the bureau.

    Democrats and the media are accusing anyone who criticizes special counsel Robert Mueller as Trumpian conspirators trying to undermine his probe. But who needs critics when Mr. Mueller’s team is doing so much to undermine its own credibility?

    Wednesday’s revelations—they’re coming almost daily—include the Justice Department’s release of 2016 text messages to and from Peter Strzok, the FBI counterintelligence agent whom Mr. Mueller demoted this summer. The texts, which he exchanged with senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, contain expletive-laced tirades against Mr. Trump. Such Trump hatred is no surprise and not by itself disqualifying. More troubling are texts that suggest that some FBI officials may have gone beyond antipathy to anti-Trump plotting.

    “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office—that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Mr. Strzok wrote Ms. Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 text. He added: “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

    Meanwhile Putin, of all people, accurately sums up the lunatic left’s infatuation with Trump/Russia conspiracy theories:–business.html

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday the United States was in the grip of a fabricated spymania whipped up by President Donald Trump’s opponents but he thought battered U.S.-Russia relations would recover one day.

    Putin dismissed those allegations and the idea of a Russia connection as “fabricated.” He shrugged off accusations that Russia’s ambassador to the United States had done something wrong by having contacts with Trump campaign figures saying it was “international practice” for diplomats to try to have contacts with all candidates in an election.

    “What did someone see that was egregious about this? Why does it all have to take on some tint of spymania?,” said Putin.

    “This is all invented by people who oppose Trump to give his work an illegitimate character. The people who do this are dealing a blow to the state of (U.S.) domestic politics,” he added, saying the accusations were disrespectful to U.S. voters.

    Tavis Smiley asked several questions about Michael Brown.

    Here are some answers for him:

    Did Michael Brown deserve:

    access to high quality public school instruction?

    Only if the leaders in his community provided it and only if his parents and the other citizens of his community paid for it. Apparently they did not feel it was a priority, so no, he didn’t deserve that, according to them.

    an affordable college education?

    No more or less than anyone else – and due to government involvement in education and the greed of those who provide it – who tend to vote Democrat, who apparently feel it’s appropriate to pay them obscene amounts to become propagandists for the Democrats instead of using that money to provide an affordable college education – apparently not. But why was an affordable college education supposedly not available to him? Millions afford college every day – but they work for it. I guess he is the one most responsible for his inability to afford college, since he chose a life of petty crime, drugs and sloth. The real question is why wasn’t he interested in getting even a basic education?

    a living wage job and not a lifetime of minimum wage employment?

    No – a “living wage” is a myth. We now have real world evidence that any company that either embraces the concept or has it forced on them is forced out of business. The only people who get stuck in minimum wage jobs are those who don’t work to better themselves, get marketable skills and advance beyond them. It’s not easy – for instance in my case, unwilling to impose the burden of the costs of higher education on my parents (who did offer to assist me as long as I got good grades and made progress towards a reasonable goal), I had a full time job, a part time job and was going to school, all at the same time. It was hard, but it was worth it. Michael Brown wasn’t interested in employment. He was a typical moonbat Democrat (whether he voted that way yet or not) who figured he could just coast through life and have others pay his way as he did drugs and engaged in petty crimes.

    first-rate healthcare?

    No, not at all. He did nothing to deserve or earn any but the most basic health care but despite this probably did have ready access to much better health care than he deserved. Health care is not a right. It’s not free – you have to earn it like everything else. Yet most major medical facilities are bound by the law to provide it even if you can’t pay for it. And this is part of what is driving the spiraling costs for health care in America.

    to live in a community unpolluted by toxic waste?

    This is the first I’ve heard of any suggestion he may have lived in a community that had a toxic waste issue. It leads to the question, “Why did his parents choose to live and raise him in a community that had toxic waste issues?” Personally I would tend to think this is just a false claim.

    to live in a city where community based policing is embraced, where the cops who work the beat by day actually live in the neighborhood by night?

    No, this is another myth of the left. Another ridiculous “entitlement” that is part of their overall quest for UTOPIA, a concept that has been with us for a long, long time and has proven itself impossible every time it’s been attempted. If the community comes up with the resources to train, hire and employ proficient officers from within then the answer would change to yes. But apparently, again, it wasn’t a community priority.

    What else did he deserve as a citizen living in the world’s greatest democracy?

    Nothing. You don’t automatically deserve anything. Government is not some magic fairy that provides all. The idea that it is or should be is part of why our country is on it’s way to failure.

    But I’ll tell you what Michael Brown DID deserve:

    He deserved to die.

    And here’s why:

    He engaged in a strong arm robbery. He called attention to himself by walking down the middle of the street. He grabbed for the officer’s gun, causing it to discharge. He began to flee, but when commanded to stop he instead turned and advanced menacingly on the officer. He ignored repeated commands to stop.

    His death is his fault and he did deserve it – of any of the cases I’ve read or heard about he is the one who most had it coming.

    But on the subject of Tavis Smiley:

    Tavis Smiley’s PBS Show Pulled From Air Amid ‘Credible’ Misconduct Allegations

    Allegations which he denies. He makes oblique references to a “consensual relationship” and it may be a woman scorned making this up, for all I know.

    “The Simpsons” totally predicted that Disney would take over Fox — almost 20 years ago.

    An episode called “When You Dish Upon A Star,” which first aired on November 8, 1998, depicted a sign on the front of a building that read “20th Century Fox, a Division of Walt Disney Co.”

    The thing about predictions is that thousands are made and nobody looks at the ones that don’t come true – only the ones that do. Example:

    The episode from the long-running Fox cartoon focuses on an unlikely relationship between Homer Simpson, Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. The sign appears toward the end, as Ron Howard successfully pitches a movie about “a killer-robot-driving-instructor that travels back in time for some reason” and “a talking pie,” and receives bags of money for the project.

    So far, at least as far as I’ve heard, Ron Howard didn’t pitch any such project nor did anyone else.

    Finally, a Republican who fights back – other than Trump, anyway.

    Not that it is likely to succeed.

    Roy Moore refuses to concede Senate race, puts hopes on recount

    Roy Moore has frequently said, in social media posts, that he will never give up the fight.

    And after he lost the Alabama Senate election on Tuesday to Democrat Doug Jones, Moore is sticking with that mantra — refusing to concede the race to Jones.

    He waited more than a hour after the race was called to address supporters in downtown Montgomery late Tuesday night, then told them to wait some more.

    “Realize when vote is this close, it’s not over and we still have to go by the rules,” Moore told the crowd, which cheered when he appeared on stage.

    Even as Moore refused to surrender, Alabama GOP Chair Terry Lathan issued a statement late Tuesday night acknowledging Jones’ win — concluding her statement with “now that this race has ended.”

    “Alabamians are conservative and have no intentions of moving toward the policies of the Democrat Party,” Lathan said in her statement. “If Mr. Jones aligns himself with the liberal Democrats in Washington, Alabama voters will remember his choices in the 2020 U.S. Senate election.”

    It’s not safe to be in power in Korea, unless you’re the boss:

    KIM PURGES PALS… AGAIN Kim Jong-un’s death squads ‘executed North Korea’s second most powerful man General Hwang Pyong-so’ days after leader’s visit to a sacred mountain ‘predicted’ a blood-letting
    He was once described as the ‘second-most powerful man in North Korea’

    A TOP aide of Kim Jong-un, once described as the “second-most powerful man in North Korea”, has disappeared from public life, sparking speculation he may have been executed by death squads.

    General Hwang Pyong-so once held the most senior military position in the hermit state as a Vice-Marshall after the supreme leader.

    But now he has been expelled from the party for “taking bribes” and not been seen since October.

    His deputy Kim Wong-hong is said to have been banished to a prison camp.

    The South Korean JoongAng Ilbo reported: “If Hwang was indeed kicked out of the Workers’ Party, it would practically mean the end of his political career, and possibly his life, though it is unknown whether or not he is still alive.”

    Last week Kim visited Korea’s most mystical mountain, Mount Paektu – something he typically does before ordering the death of his top brass.

    He was also there in April 2015, just before executing former defence chief Hyon Yong-chol, and in November 2013, before disposing of his own uncle Jang Song-thaek among other top officials.

    “Kim Jong-un is following in his father’s footsteps in visiting the mountain at times of important decisions regarding the state,” a South Korean government insider said to Korea Joongang Daily.

    South Korean spooks believe Hwang’s demise was orchestrated by another of Kim’s trusted advisers Choe Ryong Hae.

    Hwang has been accused of having an “impure attitude” towards the ruling party, amid allegations of bribery.

    Skunk guarding the chicken coop:

    A top congressional ethics official who oversees investigations into misconduct by lawmakers is accused in a federal lawsuit of verbally abusing and physically assaulting women and using his federal position to influence local law enforcement, according to a complaint filed in a federal court in Pennsylvania last month.

    The ongoing lawsuit against Omar Ashmawy, staff director and chief counsel of the Office of Congressional Ethics, stems from his involvement in a late-night brawl in 2015 in Milford, Pennsylvania, and includes a range of allegations relating to his behavior that evening and in the following two-and-half years.
