February 28, 2018, T+38: court refuses to stop Trump's wall. On guns: Obama, the most ineffective president we have ever had. NRA: tone-deaf. Trump: not tone-deaf. Wants to take guns first, due process later. Exactly right.

February 27, 2018, T+37: quiet.

February 26, 2018, T+36: quiet.

February 25, 2018, T+35: Obama's DACA implementation was clearly unconstitutional, but an appellate court upheld it on appeal. The Supreme Court refuses to get involved; won't take the appeal.
In the big scheme of things, the Dreamers (the ones currently here) are the least of many of our problems in the US. The worst thing about moving them to the head of the line for citizenship, it screws all those who are legally here and going through the process, and it encourages more to come over.

But Congress won't pass any legislation on this -- or gun control -- because it's a huge fundraiser for both parties.
February 24, 2018, T+34: Dems release their minority opinion, FISA warrants; released on a Saturday; little fanfare; doesn't deny GOP findings.

February 23, 2018, T+33: quiet.

February 22, 2018, T+32: quiet.

February 21, 2018, T+31: not being reported by the mainstream media --

February 20, 2018, T+30: say what?
  • "There is not serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America's elections, in part because they're so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved." -- Obama, 2016
  • "The Russians rigged the elections." -- to paraphrase the special prosecutor handing down indictments against 13 Russians for meddling in US elections, 2018
February 19, 2018, T+29: Others agree that FBI director, Christopher Wray, and several of his deputies need to be fired. By the way, on another note: has anyone heard any blowback from Trump's decision to release the Democratic memo rebutting the GOP memo documenting DNC collusion with the Russians? Trump wants to release the Democratic memo but the FBI needs to redact certain names and methods before it can be released. Haven't heard a thing -- the memo must have been on the president's desk about ten days ago. Haven't heard a thing. I'm sure Rachel Mad Cow is all over it.

February 18, 2018, T+28: A second passenger plane in about as many has crashed: the first, a Russian plane; the second, an Iranian plane.

February 17, 2018, T+27: World's fastest skier, Lindsey Vonn, said she would decline an invitation to the White House following the Korean Olympics. Not to worry; she won't be invited. Trump generally doesn't invite losers to the White House. Yes, color me "troll."

February 16, 2018, T+26: Mueller indicts 13 Russian nationalists (and more) for interfering with 2016 election, saying they were hurting Hillary in order to help Trump. Of course, Hillary will say she is completely vindicated: that she did not run a bad campaign; she was undermined by the Russians. More fake news, of course.

February 15, 2018, T+25: if FBI director Christopher Wray doesn't have the "right" answers for President Trump regarding the Florida shooter, someone needs to resign. Later (February 16, 2018), we learn that the FBI was tipped off, but the "information was not sent to / received by the Miami field office.

February 14, 2018, T+24: it's become abundantly clear --
  • the Watergate scandal began with an attempt to bug the DNC headquarters
  • the Russian dossier scandal began with the successful attempt to bug RNC (Trump) headquarters through a fraudulently-obtained FISA warrant
February 13, 2018, T+23: Tuesday, the Mueller-Russian collusion continues to fall apart. Now, it's Susan Rice who got caught with very interesting e-mail.

February 12, 2018, T+22: Monday. Last week, a correction of sorts in the market. Lots of hand wringing. Last Friday it finally had a good day, gaining 300 points by the close. Today, if it holds, the Dow will close up 550 points.

February 11, 2018, T+21: Sunday, quiet. Olympics in South Korea with very, very low television ratings.

February 10, 2018, T+20; Saturday, quiet. Anyone following the Mueller investigation from an unbiased view, can see that the Trump investigation is falling part. It is now clear that the fake Russian dossier began within the DNC. The #3 person at the DOJ announced she was leaving the DOJ to take her dream job at Walmsrt. She was clearly caught up in the "Deep State" shenanigans and is now getting out (of Washington, DC).

February 9, 2018, T+19: Rand Paul was able, single-handedly, able to shut down the government for the second time in less than a month. Rand Paul's shutdown lasted ... six hours? The good news: although Paul Ryan (GOP; House leader) said it was a "good bill; a good compromise", in fact, Trump got everything he wanted except funding for the wall. The Dreamers can again see where the real obstacle lies. They could care less about funding for a wall -- even the movers and shakers know that funding the wall doesn't mean it's going to happen (think lawsuits) but if a piddly amount was earmarked for the wall, President Trump would fight for fast-tracking the Dreamers. But now, it's over. March 5th is no longer a budget deadline; the new budget agreement extends for almost two years, well past the 2018 mid-term elections. Friday, government back up and running. Quiet.

February 8, 2018, T+18: because it's political, it could still end badly for President Trump, but now that the facts are trickling out, it is clear to say that Robert Mueller, himself, was duped by the dossier. He's been at this for a full year and has been focused on the wrong individuals. An honest broker would start over and focus on how the dossier story all began -- with Hillary and the DNC.

February 7, 2018, T+17: it's now clear how the Obama administration -- from Obama to Hillary to the DOJ to the FBI were all involved in illegal activities during the Hillary-Trump presidential campaign. Not much will come of this though. We might see a book come out in 2025, but that's about it.

February 6, 2018, T+16: see Vic Hanson; if no action is taken on the memo, by default it is now
"legal" for a sitting president to "weaponize" the FBI and the DOJ.

February 5, 2018, T+15: largest point drop in Dow's history, down 1,100 points; down 700 points the previous day; some see "conspiracy" against Trump; whether conspiracy or not, the Dems love this market crash; Americans' pain is Dems gain.

February 4, 2018, T+14: Trump's instincts were correct - we're not going to win in Afghanistan. Time to pull out. But his generals convinced him otherwise. Huffingtonton Post, et al, and Trump are on same page: get "troops on the ground" out of Afghanistan. Blood on his hands: why Trump has not issued an executive order of "GPS - positive control" on AMTRAK by now is beyond me. The industry has stonewalled for years.

February 3, 2018, T+13: James Wood won "Twitter gold" for this one sentence tweet -- "So Obama’s government, the DNC, and members of the MSM all conspired to fix a presidential election by deceiving a secret court allowed to spy on American citizens? Russians couldn’t have done a better job destroying sacred American institutions than Democrats have." And the disgraced former FBI director who was part of the conspiracy tweets in response: "That's it?" Another Obama "guarantee":

February 2, 2018, T+12: Dems waiting breathlessly for FISA memo. Big question: does FBI director fall on his sword? My hunch: no. On another note, now that the FISA memo has been released and the implications thereof, it is incredibly how concerned Hillary, the Deep State, the Swamp, the DOJ, the FBI, and the outgoing Obama administration were about Trump getting elected. And finally, someone needs a better speech writer: after the FISA memo was released, Jeff Sessions' response: "No department is perfect." Was he a Hillary appointee? Or a carryover from the Obama administration? A "never-Trumper"?

February 1, 2018, T+11: January stock market surge -- best run since 1959. Even with the pullback yesterday.

January 31, 2018, T+10: Trump speaks, market soars. Psychiatrists are now suggesting that Pesky Pelosi was catatonic during the SOTU address. Some suggest she has an underlying dissociative disorder. More likely she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She has previously been diagnosed with MSNBC personality disorder (DSM-V -- falling into three of the five major personality disorders: Antisocial/Psychopathic, Avoidant, Borderline.

January 30, 2018, T+9: there's no doubt now that the FBI colluded with Hillary in the 2016 presidential elections -- at every level. Everyone knows that. That's history. The more important question is whether this was simply a one-off or whether we now have an incestuous, corrupt FBI that is firmly planted within the deep state. I think the answer is obvious but the Hollywood elite and the alt-left should be very, very concerned. Although I think they can think that deeply. The swiftness in which McCabe was fired after his boss saw the memo suggests the memo was a very, very serious issue. Also, considering that McCabe had only more month before he could retire and not leave under this cloud suggests the memo was worse than boss imagined.

January 29, 2018, T+8: FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe resigning -- LOL. That's the official story. In fact, he was fired. Summarily told to take "vacation" immediately after director read an incriminating memo -- will retire a month from now. Apparently stayed on long enough to max out his pension. The spin will come out later, but the tea leaves certainly suggest that the FBI's credibility is imploding. However, it turns out, it is clear that McCabe's resignation speaks volumes about how corrupt the FBI was under Obama.

January 28, 2018, T+7: President Trump has clearly been the "man of the week," and yet, on CBS Sunday Morning, the bulk of the program was given over to Bernie Sanders and commercials.

January 27, 2018, T+6: from yesterday --

January 26, 2018, T+5:
January 25, 2018, T+4: Trump in Davos; first president since Bill Clinton to attend. He has already met with some leaders whom he could not meet in their home country. This must drive the Brits nuts; they were so hoping for mass demonstrations when Trump came to England. LOL. On another note, apparently, Schumer has taken DACA completely off the table for next round of budget talks -- not sure if that's accurate. That's how Rush interprets Schumer's recent statements.

January 24, 2018, T+3: at least we know where they stand:
  • one says, "No wall. Period."
  • the other says, "No wall, no DACA"
January 23, 2018, T+2: Davos -- US corporate tax cut is a game changer. Everything changes.

January 22, 2018, T+1: Dow up 60 points as government funding is re-instated. Trump's "infrastructure plan" has been leaked.
