OPINION: Nightmare Photo of Mueller Just Surfaced With Russian He’s Prosecuting Manafort Over

Published

on

I’ve only been catching snippets of the Paul Manafort trial. From what I understand the judge has little patience with Mueller’s team and has set a very high bar for conviction. The trial is now in full swing and is purportedly not going well for Manafort. He is being charged with fraud and tax evasion among other things. Crimes that pretty much occurred years ago, long before he was on President Trump’s campaign team. Mueller could not get Manafort on the charge of collusion with the Russians or get him to flip on President Trump, so he nailed Manafort with process crimes and got Rick Gates to flip on Manafort. It reminds me a great deal of how the FBI ensnared Al Capone.

Gates has admitted to a number of things including an affair, embezzling funds from Manafort and assisting in tax evasion as I understand it. It makes it pretty clear at least from his testimony that he assisted Manafort in breaking the law. Manafort is Trump’s former campaign manager. Other charges being leveled at him include money laundering, failure to file reports of financial accounts overseas and acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Most of the charges have to do with work he did for former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Russia candidate. I might just point out that Manafort was during that time doing business with Tony and John Podesta, who are Democrats and lobbyists as well. However, they won’t be prosecuted it would seem. Rumor has it that Tony Podesta may have been given immunity by Mueller. We’ll see.

Mueller’s team has tried to use Manafort’s wealth and his ties to Russia to convict him in the courtroom. This has drawn the ire of the presiding judge. The prosecution has introduced as evidence a loan from Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and financial accounts abroad controlled by Konstantin V. Kilimnik, who prosecutors allege has ties with Russian intelligence. The problem is that those don’t seem to be illegal acts.

Remember that Manafort was not with Trump for very long and was introduced to his team by establishment Republicans in an effort to help Trump when it became apparent they would have to get along. Trump fairly quickly dumped Manafort and went with Kellyanne Conway, who led his campaign to victory. Trump is not a politician and he seems to only go astray when he takes advice from long-time Republicans who don’t understand or desire what he is trying to accomplish.

It’s a small world out there and a nightmare photo has surfaced of Mueller with Yanukovych during his time at the FBI. Awkward.

From the Conservative Tribune:

“For fans of the theory that President Donald Trump is somehow a puppet of the Kremlin, Mr. Yanukovych figures heavily. In terms of the satellite regimes Vladimir Putin has tried to set up in post-Soviet states, Yanukovych’s was one of the most transparent. Before he was deposed as part of the Ukrainian revolution in 2014 he was as reliable a pro-Russia politician as any.

“It’s ironic, then, that Robert Mueller is the individual whose special counsel investigation is tackling the case:

“Regardless of how you feel about Mr. Posobiec and his promotion of various conspiracy theories, the point still bears making: Mueller worked with Yanukovych during his time as director of the FBI.

“The meeting in Kiev took place two months after the Boston Marathon bombing, according to The Daily Beast, and centered around counterterrorism operations.

“‘Ukrainian-American cooperation efficiently develops in many spheres of mutual interest,” Yanukovych said during Mueller’s trip, according to a Facebook post from the time by the Ukraine Embassy.

“‘Your visit is very interesting for Ukraine and relations between our law enforcement bodies have established good traditions of cooperation and communication in the course of 20 years. I am confident that there is a potential for further broadening of cooperation.”

“At the meeting, the Ukrainian leader said that he was very close to signing an agreement with the European Union.

“‘There are some preparations left but I hope that we will fulfill everything and sign the agreement,” Yanukovych said during the meeting, according to The Daily Beast. The agreement, which The Daily Beast describes as “a key focus of Paul Manafort’s lobbying work for Yanukovych” — was never signed.”

This doesn’t mean much all by itself. But if Mueller is pushing guilt by association, this goes to conduct… his own. The FBI was working with Ukraine at the time concerning anti-terrorism efforts. Regardless, the optics are terrible here. This is the guy who Manafort’s being charged with lobbying for in a case many Trump supporters feel is being used to try and tie the administration to the Kremlin. And you have Mueller glad-handing with him and beaming over this guy just five years ago under the Obama administration. Everyone already knew that Yanukovych was a Russian stooge but Mueller didn’t seem to have an issue with it then. He does now because of President Trump. For this alone, Mueller should have recused himself from the investigation.

On Monday, the judge in Manafort’s case told the lead prosecutor Greg D. Andres that he didn’t want to hear any more speculation about why oligarchs might have wanted to pay the lobbyist for his advice. He instead advised him to “go to the heart of the matter.” The judge has frequently done this and I heard this morning that one of the prosecutors got so upset he was crying over it. That hasn’t been verified yet, but you get the point. “Judge, we have been at the heart of the matter,” Andres said, exasperated. That’s the problem and why so many Americans don’t trust Mueller’s team or this investigation. A photo surfacing of you posing with one of your alleged bad guys doesn’t help either.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
