  1. Last week Trump bragged that the Japanese Prime Minister nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Now the truth surfaces: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last autumn after receiving a request from the U.S. government to do so, the Asahi newspaper reported on Sunday. Team Trump made a quiet request to the Japanese Prime Minister to nominate Donald for the Actual Genuine Nobel Peace Prize after Trump (1) threatened war with North Korea, (2) called the North Korean dictator rude names on Twitter, only to (3) cap it off with a face-to-face meeting that North Korea has been itching for decades as confirmation of their “world power” status but which has, to date, produced little in return.
  2. Someone is lying . . . . I wonder who? President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to apparently circulate a call for the jailing of those who investigate him, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “‘These guys, the investigators, ought to be in jail. What they have done, working with the Obama intelligence agencies, is simply unprecedented,’” Trump wrote, quoting conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh. “‘This is one of the greatest political hoaxes ever perpetrated on the people of this Country, and Mueller is a coverup.’” He later added that “The Mueller investigation is totally conflicted, illegal and rigged! Should never have been allowed to begin, except for the Collusion and many crimes committed by the Democrats. Witch Hunt!” The president’s tweets came hours after House Intelligence chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday that there’s “evidence in plain sight” that Trump colluded with Russia. “All of this is evidence of collusion, and you either have to look the other way to say it isn’t or you have to have a different word for it, because it is a corrupt dealing with a foreign adversary during a campaign,” Schiff told CNN’s Dana Bash.
  3. As America grapples with the fallout of yet another mass shooting the long and bitter debate over gun control in America will inevitably be reopened. After Sandy Hook, Will Oremus highlighted the lessons of Australia’s strict gun laws and the resulting success in preventing subsequent mass shootings there. The original post is reprinted below. On April 28, 1996, a gunman opened fire on tourists in a seaside resort in Port Arthur, Tasmania. By the time he was finished, he had killed 35 people and wounded 23 more. It was the worst mass murder in Australia’s history. Twelve days later, Australia’s government did something remarkable. Led by newly elected conservative Prime Minister John Howard, it announced a bipartisan deal with state and local governments to enact sweeping gun-control measures. A decade and a half hence, the results of these policy changes are clear: They worked really, really well. At the heart of the push was a massive buyback of more than 600,000 semi-automatic shotguns and rifles, or about one-fifth of all firearms in circulation in Australia. The country’s new gun laws prohibited private sales, required that all weapons be individually registered to their owners, and required that gun buyers present a “genuine reason” for needing each weapon at the time of the purchase. (Self-defense did not count.) In the wake of the tragedy, polls showed public support for these measures at upwards of 90 percent. What happened next has been the subject of several academic studies. Violent crime and gun-related deaths did not come to an end in Australia, of course. But as the Washington Post’s Wonkblog pointed out in August, homicides by firearm plunged 59 percent between 1995 and 2006, with no corresponding increase in non-firearm-related homicides. The drop in suicides by gun was even steeper: 65 percent. Studies found a close correlation between the sharp declines and the gun buybacks. Robberies involving a firearm also dropped significantly. Meanwhile, home invasions did not increase, contrary to fears that firearm ownership is needed to deter such crimes. But here’s the most stunning statistic. In the decade before the Port Arthur massacre, there had been 11 mass shootings in the country. There hasn’t been a single one in Australia since.
  4. SNL is COMEDY . . . . . . BUT Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2019 The president of the United States has called for “retribution” against a media outlet for daring to criticize him.Let there be no mistake about it—Trump has announced in capital letters that he does not believe in the First Amendment. This tweet is the act of a dictator. Imagine if a Democratic president tweeted this about Fox. It would be dangerous and wrong then, just like what Trump the dictator said today was wrong.
  5. Trump might be laying an insanity plea in the event he gets nabbed for something.
  6. Trump is referred to by all kinds of derogatory handles but one thing I'm sure of, he's not brain dead and not out of the loop on is when it comes to what Manafort and Stone have been up to. I can guarantee Mueller knows how he's involved and is making it air tight.
  7. USA Today 4PM WASHINGTON – White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed on Friday that she has been interviewed by investigators working for special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. “The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel,” Sanders said in a statement. “I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them.” Sanders wouldn't discuss the topic or the timing of the interview. Investigators working for Mueller have interviewed a series of people linked to Trump in recent months, including former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
  8. After Trump’s national emergency declaration in order to obtain funding for a border wall, one legal scholar who is among those arguing the time has come to pursue a far more direct and effective method of combating the president’s lawlessness: impeachment. With Trump’s national emergency declaration expected, international law professor Francis Boyle said there is no time to lose. “This should be initiated immediately,” said Boyle. “All you need is one brave member of the U.S. House of Representatives to meaningfully assert that body’s Power of the Purse. Trump’s indications that he will override that legislative power and the seeming acquiescence by some Democrats is illegitimate and dangerous and subverts a fundamental premise of the Constitution. * Boyle: Received a Bachelor of Arts degree (1971) in political science from the University of Chicago in 1971, then a Juris Doctor degree magna *** laude from Harvard Law School, and Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in political science from Harvard University.
  9. I had to shut it off. Once off the teleprompter he becomes his normal self >>> the world's biggest A**hole.
  10. Interesting Confessed Russian spy Maria Butina may be gearing up to testify in another trial, according to sealed court papers briefly made public on Friday. Federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C., filed a motion to file under seal, prosecutors asked to file an authorization for transportation in secrecy so that Butina could testify in an unspecified “pending criminal investigation.” The Washington Post’s Spencer Hsu first discovered and published a portion of the document on Twitter. Butina pleaded guilty this week to acting as a foreign agent for Russia and attempting to use her access to conservative groups to build a secret backchannel between the Kremlin and the Trump administration. As part of her plea deal, Butina agreed to cooperate “in any and all to matters as to which the Government deems this cooperation relevant.”
  11. If I had to face his BS another 6 years I'd rather pour gasoline all over myself and lite it.
  12. I've witnessed enough lying and irresponsible acts on his part that can only be described as done by someone mentally incompetent. Imagine what damage Trump could do were he competent! He's done so much already to damage our eco system, our justice system, our checks and balances, our 75 year-relations with our best allies, and our Constitutionally protected freedoms. And all this despite being a bumbling, ignorant, lazy, corrupt, self-enriching, gold-bricking President! It's truly terrifying to think what he could destroy if he was focused, motivated and determined to do what's right and not divide this country so bad.
  13. The Patriot players spent time today at Mass General and brought the trophy for the many children hospitalized. Kraft and Bilichick lead one h.ell of an organization. No wonder Gillette Stadium is packed each and every game. Season is over, how many teams are still out in the community spreading good will?
  14. Too much hem hawing around. He should have made up his mind long ago. Is he waiting for someone to beg him?
  15. Coming to Pensacola towards the end of next week from Atl. Hope the rain threat goes away.
  16. True because Canada's 'for all' plan causes them a big delay in getting care according to what I've read.
  17. Put it to better use by taking it. Smart move. Trump gets his wall, everyone happy.
  18. Who gives a sheat where it comes from. Basically all seized funds have a degree of blood on it.
  19. What time do I arrive?
  20. @WhenFalconsWin When will Trump supporters finally wake from their admiration comas?
