“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.”~ Ronald Reagan.
Seriously, did anyone believe that Donald Trump could be bought?
Of course not.
Any time there is money on the table, the Clinton’s believe it belongs to them.
Finally, the truth is told, it’s time to put both Clinton’s and perhaps Chelsea before a grand jury and let justice be done.
“Slick introducing the Skank.”
Let us not forget the Clinton’s pay to play where they sold U.S. Government secrets to the enemy. (Source)

Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and the author of “Clinton Cash,” explained on Fox News Tuesday how a Russia connection to the Clinton campaign and Obama presidency is much bigger and more troubling than anything Democrats have accused Team Trump of.
During his appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Schweizer alleged that Clinton campaign chair John Podesta probably violated federal law when he failed to disclose his stock holdings in a Kremlin-funded company.
“In 2011, John Podesta joins the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts,” Schweizer said. “About two months after he joins the board, a Russian entity called Rusnano puts a billion rubles — which is about 35 million dollars — into John Podesta’s company. Now, what is Rusnano? Rusnano is not a private company, Steve. It is a fund directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact, the Russian science minister called Rusnano Putin’s child. So you have the Russian government investing in one of John Podesta’s businesses in 2011, while he is an advisor to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.”
“Does anyone in Trump’s circle rise to the level where there’s this kind of money involved?” asked host Steve Doocy.
Schweizer answered that he hadn’t seen anything like that yet.
“Nobody that has an advisory role in the White House has had this money exchange.
And certainly the money hasn’t exchanged as far as we know while they have advised the president,” he said, pointing out that while he was an advisor in the Obama White House, Podesta owned stock shares with “Putin’s Child” and failed to disclose it.
Ridiculously, Senator Warren has some questions about Ivanka Trump.
It’s ironic that she would question her ethics as the Squaw who claimed to be 1/89 Cherokee Indian used that lie to get her into law school and then later a $350K teaching position at Harvard University.
She grossed over $700,000 over a two-year period teaching at Harvard while she was double dipping as a United States Senator and a very scary one at that.
Warren is so far to the left she would even scare Hillary Clinton.

BOSTON — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to know how Ivanka Trump plans to follow federal ethics rules.
President Donald Trump’s daughter will have a security clearance, a West Wing office, and the ear of her father, but won’t be called an employee.
That would trigger transparency and ethical provisions, including a law prohibiting conflicts of interest.
The Massachusetts Democrat sent a letter to the Office of Government Ethics on Wednesday asking them to determine which ethics rules apply to Ivanka Trump.Warren also wants to know which disclosures Ivanka Trump will be required to make to demonstrate compliance and whether her compliance will be monitored and enforced.
If you believe that Warren hasn’t got the machinery in place for a presidential run against Donald Trump in 2020, you just haven’t been getting around much have you?

Ivanka Trump, the elder daughter of President Trump, is becoming an official government employee, joining her husband in serving as an unpaid adviser to her father in the White House.
Ms. Trump already has an office in the West Wing, and she said last week that she would serve as an informal adviser to her father.
But that plan prompted criticism from ethics experts, who said it would allow her to avoid some rules and disclosures.
“I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees,” Ms. Trump said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Throughout this process, I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role,” she said.

“We are pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as the first daughter and in support of the president,” a spokeswoman for the president said in an email.
“Ivanka’s service as an unpaid employee furthers our commitment to ethics, transparency, and compliance and affords her increased opportunities to lead initiatives driving real policy benefits for the American public that would not have been available to her previously.”
Ms. Trump’s lawyer, Jamie S. Gorelick, said that her decision stemmed from “her commitment to compliance with federal ethics standards and her openness to opposing points of view.”
“She will file the financial disclosure forms required of federal employees and be bound by the same ethics rules that she had planned to comply with voluntarily,” Ms. Gorelick said.
Pelosi has been in Congress for 29 years, in that period of time the dimwit has only secured one award. It figures.
The moment she uttered, “I guess we’ll have to read the bill before you find out what’s in it,” (Source) she forever sealed her fate as the dumbest people in congress, including the entire Congressional Black Caucus.
Either Morris or Dennis Miller are likely correct, I just happen to be more fond of Miller calling her “Bat shit Crazy.
Dennis Miller on the issue when the “Big-eared bony assed negro,” when the was playing president.
Bat shit crazy, but senile still has a nice ring to it.
Simply Linda tells me Upstate New York is a wonderful place to live.
Never mind the high taxes and the fascist leadership.
We now have evidence that Adolph Hitler is still alive and reasonably well, living in New York.
But, wait, now they want to take her First Amendment Right of Free Speech from her.
Perhaps she’s ready to move to an equally nutty place, California,
Seriously, the bill contains no exception even for material of genuine historical interest; after all, such speech would have to be removed if it was “no longer material to current public debate.” Nor is there an exception for autobiographic material, whether in a book, on a blog or anywhere else. Nor is there an exception for political figures, prominent business people, and others.
But the deeper problem with the bill is simply that it aims to censor what people say, under a broad, vague test based on what the government thinks the public should or shouldn’t be discussing. It is clearly unconstitutional under current First Amendment law, and I hope First Amendment law will stay that way (no matter what rules other countries might have adopted).
In a bill aimed at securing a “right to be forgotten,” (Source) introduced by Assemblyman David I. Weprin (Source) and (as Senate Bill 4561 (Source) by state Sen. Tony Avella, (Source) liberal New York politicians would require people to remove ‘inaccurate,’ ‘irrelevant,’ ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive’ statements about others…
Within 30 days of a ”request from an individual,”
“all search engines and online speakers] shall remove … content about such individual, and links or indexes to any of the same, that is ‘inaccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive,’ ”
“and without replacing such removed … content with any disclaimer [or] takedown notice.”
“ ‘[I]naccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’, or ‘excessive’ shall mean content,”
“which after a significant lapse in time from its first publication,”
“is no longer material to current public debate or discourse,”
“especially when considered in light of the financial, reputational and/or demonstrable other harm that the information … is causing to the requester’s professional, financial, reputational or other interest,”
“with the exception of content related to convicted felonies, legal matters relating to violence, or a matter that is of significant current public interest, and as to which the requester’s role with regard to the matter is central and substantial.”
Failure to comply would make the search engines or speakers liable for, at least, statutory damages of $250/day plus attorney fees.
As The Washington Post’s Eugene Volokh rages, (Source) under this bill, newspapers, scholarly works, copies of books on Google Books and Amazon, online encyclopedias (Wikipedia and others) — all would have to be censored whenever a judge and jury found (or the author expected them to find) that the speech was “no longer material to current public debate or discourse” (except when it was “related to convicted felonies” or “legal matters relating to violence” in which the subject played a “central and substantial” role).
He has “obtained passports for an AQ associate in Syria, provided medical supplies to an injured Syria-based AQ associate,” and “worked with an [Al Nusrah] associate to provide hundreds of thousands of dollars to [Al Nusrah] members in Syria.”
He has also “solicited donations” for Al Nusrah members, sending “approximately $20,000” to one of them in late 2015.
At some point in 2014, al-`Anizi “was appointed as AQ’s representative in Syria by AQ senior leadership.”
The US Treasury Departmentannounced today that Muhammad Hadi al-`Anizi, who is “based in Kuwait,” has been designated as a terrorist. Al-`Anizi, a “terrorist facilitator, and financier,” has “provided extensive material and financial support” for both al Qaeda and its arm in Syria.
Today’s designation is the latest in a series targeting al Qaeda’s support network inside Kuwait.
Treasury traces Al-`Anizi’s career back at least a decade to 2007, as he allegedly supported al Qaeda at the time.
Much of his work since 2014 has been in service of al Qaeda’s Syrian branch, formerly known as Al Nusrah Front.
“From raising funds to facilitating the travel of terrorists, al-`Anizi is responsible for providing key financial and logistical support to Al Nusrah Front and Al Qaeda,” John E. Smith, the director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), said in a statement. “The Treasury Department will continue to aggressively target Al Nusrah Front’s and Al Qaeda’s financial structures to further disrupt their ability to conduct terrorist attacks.”
