    Michael Cohen, the longtime attorney of President Trump, is under federal investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations, according to three people with knowledge of the case.One person familiar with the probe said investigators have been gathering material on Cohen for weeks, including bank records. Two of the potential crimes being investigated – bank fraud and wire fraud – suggest prosecutors have some reason to think Cohen may have misled bankers about why he was using particular funds or may have improperly used banks in the transfer of funds. Among the records seized by investigators were...

    If you have a NETFLIX account, I suggest watching Deep Undercove, episode 7, called Operation Casablanca. There is a reason the swamp likes Mexico. In this episode US customs has infiltrated the world of Money Laundering by the cartels. It also tells how DEA and the DOJ shut it down and why. It really got my blood to boiling and why I fear for the Presidents safety in his quest to shut down the cartels.

    GOP Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby said on Monday that he did not vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore in the state's Senate special election. "No, no, no, I voted absentee. I didn't vote for him. I voted for a distinguished Republican write-in," Shelby told reporters when asked if he would vote for Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.
  • Vanity - All Alabama Voters, should vote for Judge Roy Moore for their next Senator.

    11/12/2017 10:09:37 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 11 replies
    Every legitmate, registered voter in the great state of Alabama should cast their votes for Judge Roy Moore to be elected the next US Senate, Senator from Alabama. Why? Because the Washington Post, The Mainstream Media, the entire Democrat Party, the Republican Establishment RINOs, etc., are all bad mouthing and mocking all Alabama residents and voters for their way of life, thirty and forty years ago, trying to make them all look like buffoons, idiots, sex maniacs and offenders for a way of life that was practiced in many states across the nation. And...these same low lifes, all of them,...
  • U.S. Embassies Around World Still Refuse to Hang Trump Portrait, Swamp Still in Control

    PJ Media ^ | November 4, 2017 | J. Christian Adams
    In multiple embassies around the world, particularly those staffed entirely by career Foreign Service officers, no portrait of President Trump or Vice-President Pence has been hung. Up until last week, the swamp had an excuse – there was no official portrait and the swamp refused to go to the trouble to find unofficial ones. But it’s not just the entrances to embassies where it seems the 2016 election never happened. All throughout the government, Obama-holdovers who rabidly oppose President Trump and his policies still hold positions of extraordinary power. The swamp is alive and well. Consider the National Security...

    RUSH: Hillary Clinton says the Republican Party is “imploding,” and she’s saying this because of Jeff Flake and she’s saying it because of Corker, and she is saying it because of things related to that. She’s so out of touch and doesn’t know where to look to find out whether or not the Republican Party’s imploding. The only way the Republican Party could be imploding is if Trump voters were abandoning him, and that’s not happening. Mrs. Clinton, what’s really happening here is Trump is draining the swamp. The establishmentarians who are admitting and demonstrating that they don’t have what...

    Former White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon revealed in a Sunday interview that he believes it will take decades to drain the swamp of Washington, D.C. “The permanent political class, as represented by both parties … you’re not going to drain that in eight months,” Bannon said during an interview with CBS News anchor Charlie Rose for 60 Minutes. “You’re not going to drain it in two terms. This is going to take ten, 15, 20 years of relentlessly going after it.”

  • Historically Has Any Empire Won A War Of Counter Insurgency?

    Historically speaking has any Empire won a war of counter insurgency? I'm hearing this talk about Afghanistan, and do not know the answer? I think the odds are not good when you think of the American Revolution, Vietnam, Kashmir, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc.. and an added bonus the "rules of engagement". For the record, I am very strong President Trump supporter. Love the guy and will support him 100%. Just looking for good answers. Thanks!

    Full title: State Department lawyers removing references to ISIS 'genocide' against Christians, other religious minorities The State Department's top lawyers are systematically removing the word "genocide" to describe the Islamic State's mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies. Additionally, Democratic senators are delaying confirmation of Mark Green, Trump's pick to head the U.S. Agency for International Development who has broad bipartisan support. These efforts guarantee that Obama-era policies that worked to exclude Iraq's...

    Jamie Gorelick, a veteran of President Bill Clinton's Justice Department and a Hillary Clinton supporter, explains why she's working for Trump's daughter now. Attorney Jamie Gorelick had just finished vetting potential Cabinet secretaries for Hillary Clinton — and raising money for the failed 2016 Democratic nominee — when Jared Kushner called her last year, seeking legal counsel. Gorelick, who served as deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton and a former member of the 9/11 Commission, was recommended to Kushner by former News Corp. executive Joel Klein, who now serves as chief strategy officer at Oscar, the health insurance company...

    Draining the swamp means cleaning out the remaining Democratic government underground too. President Donald John Trump is reported to be furious with his communications staff for steadily being outsmarted by well-timed and –placed leaks from Democratic operatives, suggesting collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government agents in preventing Hillary Clinton’s election, even surmising that this may have involved treasonous activities by Trump operatives. With so far not an iota of evidence in support of such collusion, and completely ignoring that not only Hillary Clinton lost the election but the Democrats all over the country by failing to achieve expected...

    Feds Clear DeLay. He Calls Pelosi “The Swamp”Chad Pergram | August 16, 2010 It's been a long time since former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) got the chance to come out swinging in public. But that's exactly what the feisty former GOP leader did Monday when the Justice Department told his attorneys it closed its inquiry of DeLay after a six year probe. DeLay was his vintage himself during a telephone conference call with reporters. "They didn't have anything," DeLay boasted. "The case was so weak I never did meet with anyone from the Justice Department and never appeared...
