Jonathan Ossoff, latest contestant in the Trump Repudiation Sweepstakes, has gone down to defeat in a special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district
The Democrat, who does not live in the district he was running in, spent $23 million on the race –which together with outside spending made this the most expensive House race in the history of the Republic.
The Republican victor, Karen Handel, is now the first female Republican from Georgia elected to the House, despite being outspent 7 to 1.
Ossoff’s campaign spent $22.5 million, compared to Handel’s $3.2 million, according to reports. That is a ratio of 7 to 1 in favor of the Democrat. Despite not being a resident of his district, a fact Handel ably capitalized on, Ossoff took in almost nine times more donations from California than from Georgia. One media analysis indicated a mere 3.5 percent of Ossoff’s donations from late March to the end of May came from within the state. Celebrity endorsements from entertainers Samuel L. Jackson, Chelsea Handler, Alyssa Milano, and John Leguizamo couldn’t save Ossoff. Nor could donations from traitor Jane Fonda, and actors Sam Waterston, Kristen Bell, Connie Britton, Jessica Lange, Lynda Carter, Rhea Perlman, or Jon Cryer get Ossoff across the finish line.
Yes, the Democrats keep touting these special elections as a referendum on Trump, and giving Americans a chance to repent. And Americans keep voting Republican.
“Contrary to some of Mueller’s fans, no one “deserves respect” because of the recommendations of friends and colleagues, least of all a political appointee unknown personally to the vast majority of voters. Respect is earned by doing the right thing not as defined by partisan, professional, or ideological interests, but because it is lawful, moral, and just. As the Journal writes, “The country needs a fair investigation of the facts, not a vendetta to take down Mr. Trump or vindicate the tribe of career prosecutors and FBI agents to which Messrs. Mueller and Comey belong.””

Where Democracy Dies in Darkness
The Washington Post is claiming that President Trump is under criminal investigation.
Citing unnamed “officials” once again, the dubious news source says
The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.
The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.
What a great way to change the subject from Democrat hatred and gun violence.
Disgruntled former FBI employee James Comey overcame his habitual anxiety symptoms long enough to assure the president on three occasions that he (Trump) was not personally under investigation. But apparently he (Comey) was lying, or things changed as soon as:
1- Comey became unemployed:
The obstruction-of-justice investigation of the president began days after Comey was fired on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter.
2- Democrats demonstrated their usual penchant for political violence.
Rep. Steve Scalise, a congressional staffer, a lobbyist and a member of the Capitol police force were shot Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia
3- The never-ending
witch-hunt investigation into Russian collusion STILL failed to come up with any evidence that would implicate the Trump campaign,
Where is the evidence of President Trump’s collusion with Russia?
The Wall Street Journal – no particular fan of Trump – characterizes the DOJ charge to Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, as fatally open-ended, vague, and flawed. His instruction lists no federal statutes and invites a fishing expedition into trivial matters. Journalists covering the story appear to disagree on what Mueller is supposed to do: Is he to “oversee the investigation into ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials” or “investigate possible coordination between President Trump’s associates and Russian officials?”
so . . .
4- Special Counsel Mueller had to come up with something, anything, to investigate.
Mueller has not publicly discussed his work, and a spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment.
Psssssst! Rumor has it he’s looking into obstruction, which could end in IMPEACHMENT!
The interviews suggest that Mueller sees the question of attempted obstruction of justice as more than just a “he said, he said” dispute between the president and the fired FBI director, an official said.
Investigating Trump for possible crimes is a complicated affair, even if convincing evidence of a crime were found. The Justice Department has long held that it would not be appropriate to indict a sitting president. Instead, experts say, the onus would be on Congress to review any findings of criminal misconduct and then decide whether to initiate impeachment proceedings.
This brilliant investigative reporting by the crack journalists at the WaPo was immediately picked up by every single news outlet in the world, which quoted the WaPo’s
imaginary friends “unnamed sources” extensively.
Washington Post Editor Marty Baron said this week that his paper is treating the Trump administration the exact same way it would a Clinton administration, and they’re absolutely not the opposition party.
There are some things Democrats just won’t put up with.
Like allowing the lawfully elected President to take office without endless challenges to his legitimacy, endless evidence-free insinuations of electoral interference, endless calls for violence against him and his supporters.
And today we saw that the Democrats can really get behind that “gun violence” thing.
Despite his decision last November not to pursue prosecution of Hilary Clinton, President Trump may have no choice, depending on what former FBI Director Mueller ‘s independent counsel probe turns up.
Any investigation into Russian interference in “our democracy” must include an examination of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s close ties with Russia, contributions from Russians to her family’s Foundations, and her eventually enabling Russia to obtain 20% of US uranium reserves.
As Peter Flaherty writing in The Hill says
No investigation will be complete or credible, however, if it does not include a review of the relationship between the Russian government and its favored business entities with the nonprofit Clinton Foundation, and political and business associates of the Clintons.
Unlike the inferences that have been made about President Trump and his campaign, many of which rely on rumor, innuendo, conspiracy theories and deliberate falsehoods, the Clintons’ extensive relationship with Russian interests has been documented and reported by some of the nation’s leading journalists.
In a Fox News interview, former Speaker Newt Gingrich pointed out that the Clintons have extensive ties to Moscow, and received foundation donations while Hillary was the Secretary of State.
Bill Clinton received $500,000 from a Russian investment bank for a speech in Moscow while Hillary was secretary of state, Gingrich reminded the audience.
Between 2009 and 2013 a Canadian company involved in a uranium deal with Russia donated millions to the Clinton Foundation, which then Secretary of State Clinton failed to disclose, despite a promise to President Obama to do so.
So if Comey’s BFF Robert Mueller wants his investigation to be taken seriously, he will have to direct some of his attention to the other side of the campaign as well, rather than simply continuing the witch hunt against the President.
“I just want to make people laugh. That’s all I want to do,” sobbed Kathy Griffin in one of her many, many, many self-pitying public statements.
It is claimed that she has apologized, a patently untrue statement. Griffin posted a statement to her twitter followers, claiming to be sorry, and saying that she went too far because she’s “an artist” (right), and begging for forgiveness.
One problem: an apology is supposed to be addressed to the wronged party –in this case President Donald Trump, and his family, especially his 11-year-old son Barron.
But clapped-out old unfunny alleged comedian Kathy Griffin would rather cut off her own head than apologize to the President.
Griffin said she has received death threats following the incident. “I’m teasing the President. This is America and you shouldn’t have to die for it. The death threats are constant and they are detailed and they are serious and they are specific. Today it’s me and tomorrow it could be you.”
Uh-huh. Tomorrow it could be you if you do a mock-up of an ISIS-style execution of the President. Which I guess means that old Kath hasn’t been singled out at all. Funny, that.
Remember that first episode of the Walking Dead, where the zombies take down Rick’s horse?
Or maybe the city of New York has revived it’s 19th century practice of letting herds of pigs roam the city to eat butcher’s offal and other garbage to keep the streets clean.
No, that can’t be right. The pigs wouldn’t be segregated by sex.
Perhaps they’re kneeling to beg forgiveness for the recent Muslim mass murders committed in the name of Allah.
Not likely. If that were the case they wouldn’t be appropriating a major public thoroughfare for their private use.
No, the true explanation is provided by Cristina Laila at The Gateway Pundit.
There is no reason for this other than Muslims letting the infidels know that they [are] here and working on their Islamic takeover.
Yet more Islamic terror attacks are being reported in the UK, this time from London.
The eyewitness told the BBC that a van veered from side to side along the bridge, slamming into groups of people, and even throwing one woman “20 feet in the air.”
The eyewitness described injured people lining the bridge in the wake of the van’s path. According to the London Ambulance Service, at least 20 people have been taken to six hospitals following the London Bridge incident. The BBC is reporting that more than one person has died.
Witnesses reported seeing a van slam into a bus stop and hitting a bus, attackers stabbing people with knives, and several incidents of gunfire. The attacks occurred on London Bridge and at Borough Market.
Beware, the “holy month of Ramadan” still has weeks to go.
