I’ve had it. Not only have I had it – there’s an over-flow of company crowded into this corner of opinion.
How can you sit there and fail to take action to remove Mueller from his apparent “free to do whatever he wants” position?
Mueller is making a mockery of the rule of law and so are you by your inaction.
In real life, where the rules count more, Mueller would not be allowed to proceed with all these OBVIOUS “in your face” conflicts of interest. And, no doubt, someone would have filed numerous ethic violation complaints on him, Comey & Rosenstein right at the onset. Yet, in your world of political calculation – you turn a blind eye to his inappropriateness and pretend not to hear us. How politician of you!
Maybe in the past, you were able to blow off the silent majority because they didn’t rock the boat too awfully bad, but times have changed. The silent majority is silent no more, as many have told you over the past year or so. They meant it. I mean it. It’s time you realize it.
You, by your inaction, are making a mockery of the rule of law. You are showing us that we have no reason to trust the system ruled over by the Federal government. You are showing us we have no reason to trust you.
The short of the story is…
Mueller should never have been appointed to anything, but he was.
Upon realization that Mueller does have a conflict – he should have been immediately removed.
You have thus far failed to do anything about correcting this error. That is not acceptable. It will never be acceptable.
Should you continue to ignore our rightful complaint about this wrong and wrongful behavior – you will have broken your oath of office and therefore – have no further right to be a member of Congress. Instead, you will be an accessory to any violation and law broken as a result of your failure to take appropriate action.
It’s up to you to do the right thing.

To say I am quite disappointed with you as a body, and with some in particular, would be the ultimate understatement. You have been shockingly ineffective in all good ways and reeking of betraying, backstabbing, low-blowing, tantrum throwing, shameful individuals walking among you. Unbelievable.
How many of you knew that President Trump wasn’t under investigation but allowed media to spread the false rumor that he was? Did you ever step forward and announce to the world that was untrue? Or did you gleefully allow the public to believe a lie and watch as so many then judged the president based on that falsehood? Worse, how many of you were part of keeping the false illusion going? How many of you slyly made suggestive comments knowing how the public would take them due to the previous lie tainting their reactions and opinions?
Shameful doesn’t touch what I perceive of what you all, with exception, have done. You have been deceitful in so many ways. Yes, even you, who turned your heads and pretended it had nothing to do with you – are guilty of deceit because you allowed – by your silence – an outright lie or distortion be presented as the truth.
Let’s be simple.
Congressman X and Congresswoman X were at dinner together. Someone that doesn’t like one or both starts a rumor that they are seeing each other romantically. You know differently. You were sitting close enough to hear & knew it was a working dinner. You also knew there was other staff that had merely gotten up from the table briefly for the restroom, taking a call or whatever reason. You know and you say nothing. You are guilty of the rumor as well. You have allowed it to continue by your silence.
Do I need to spell it out or have you figured out what the example is suggesting?
Those of you, who have not spread the lie, are still guilty because you know the truth (or suspect it) and have done nothing to put a halt to the outright lies and innuendoes that are meant to taint and destroy the president because you don’t like him either.
How would you feel if your career (or entire life) was destroyed by lies simply because people didn’t like you and they got enough media coverage to make the masses believe that lie? After all, as we all know, the lie is always SHOUTED OUT and the correction, if any, is a meek whisper hidden amid the pages or reporting.
I can’t remember how many times I have heard some of your members admit there has been no evidence of collusion with the Russians only to follow it by something to the effect – that is why we need an investigation. Do you know how irrational you sound?
Some have brought up Benghazi hearings. There is a difference. We know there was an attack. We know four people died. We know certain people lied about the video. We know someone is responsible. We know information has been hidden from us.
Do you see the difference yet?
The Benghazi investigation began with an actual incident. Something actually happened.
The Russian collusion investigation is based on what? A collusion incident didn’t happen and an investigation ensued. Instead, an investigation ensued to look for an incident. If you don’t see the irony in that or understand the danger of such inappropriate use of power – you are part of the danger to our free society.
It’s easy to make an innocent situation look otherwise, if one has a mind to do so. It’s easy for words to be twisted, taken out of context and dissected to mean something totally different than what the person meant. Easy. And you in Congress seem to be among those who are making it even easier.
Where are you when your president is being openly lied about?
Where are you when some of your members are shouting that articles of impeachment are being presented? Just like those members, whom I believe to be acting unethically, you know that many will either be hopefully ignoring facts or ignorant of the facts. You know, but you do nothing as the members go on television and get in front of those mics. You allow them, by silence and lack of action, to make claims untrue and unproven.
Where are you when they try to claim that Trump is mentally ill? (Fear mongering) Have you noticed that many, of those throwing that claim out there, actually give the appearance of having some sort of problem themselves? Many of us have certainly noticed.
Where have you been when members of Congress try to suggest Trump is disrespectful, while they themselves have been and are being disrespectful?
Where have you been?
With exception – you have been allowing the lies, distortions and disrespect to flow through the halls of Congress. You have been as guilty, if silent, as any member that has lied, twisted words & thrown out innuendoes to suggest a lie. You have allowed it to be what people think. So you have allowed it to happen.
I could continue, but will, instead, move on to a few other points.
Should any of you politicians take the time to look beyond your ideology, as well as hate and dislike of OUR president and the opposite party, you might find that Trump has some excellent ideas that can get us out of the mess that politicians have made. And, though it’s obvious that many of you don’t want Trump to succeed at anything, you might want to think beyond that. If Trump’s ideas win, or ignite ideas that are winners, you all win too. People will remember that good happened because you supported and voted for it. Might want to think about that for a moment, as you think of coming elections.
To all that hate Trump so badly that you will sacrifice something good happening for America and its citizens – you need to resign and go into some other field. You are disrespecting the duties and office you were sworn to uphold. You are a liar and a cheat. A cheat because you are cheating the people you represent of the truth and good results. A liar because you are suggesting you are doing it for the good of the country and people, when, in fact, you are only doing and saying what you are doing and saying because you do not like Trump and want him to fail at all costs.
Shame on all of you who have put your feelings before those you have been elected to represent!
Shame on all of you who have allowed lies and half-truths (full lies) to be reported far and wide by the liberal leaning networks, publications and people, who are more than happy to provide the platform to spread it all!
Shame on all of you who aren’t man and woman enough to stand up with integrity and respect to end the rash of wrongful attacks and disrespect towards the president!
Shame on all of you who are putting your petty thoughts, feelings and reactions before our country because you didn’t get the president you personally wanted!
Shame on all of you who are looking for some technicality to void the election results because you don’t like them! (Remember: If this one can be voided – so can all future ones. You open the door to chaos.)
I’m so tired of waking up every day to all the lying, sneaking and cheating of many politicians and lots of media – that I could scream loud enough for even you all to hear me.
The behavior of some, for all to see, is outrageous.
It’s worse than having to deal with out-of-control children.
It’s worthy of being expelled as one would be in a normal school setting where ethics and rules matter.
All of you who have acted inappropriately whether by action or inaction – know who you are. (Your fellow members know, too.) You all need to do some serious reflection and ask yourself why you ran for office and what it was you wished to accomplish. If you had, and have, good intent – I hope that you will be able to turn your behavior around. On the other hand, if it was your intent to get only what you wanted, line your pockets, create chaos or destroy America from within – I hope your fellow members will out you and take steps to make your wrongful efforts ineffective.
To all of you who stand up against wrongful behavior, wrongful attacks on the president and acts to destroy our country regardless of how unpopular it makes you among other members – thank you! Thank you for striving to be the honorable representative that lives with integrity and truth! God bless you & may you be rewarded for holding the line in our behalf!
Members of Congress, we are watching and listening. The ball is in your court. It’s all up to you how you play the game. However, remember that it is up to us whether you will be on the team for another term.
“No Justice! No Peace!”? Sounds like a plan to me. After all, actual justice (via the rule of law) would be deporting all the illegal aliens. Peace would be in not having to hear the insults, attempts at intimidation and rude chants demanding what is not your right to demand.
I’m a compassionate person as are most people. However, demand I bow to your will simply because that’s what you want and your wants trump mine (in your mind) – I’ll be doing anything but bowing. And that is where we are today. You demanding and me refusing to bow along with a great many other people.
Just who do you think you are to make demands and threaten to create havoc if those demands are not met?
I didn’t bring you to the United States and neither did anyone I know. If you have a problem with the results of being brought here illegally – take it up with those responsible for having made that choice for you. Be mad at them for putting you in the awkward position in the first place, if you are going to be mad at anyone at all. Don’t be mad at me for what I had nothing to do with. That’s justice.
I might have been more interested in your plight, if it weren’t for the attacks suggesting anyone not 100% on your side is a racist.
I might have been more interested in your plight, if people tried to win me over, rather than immediately go into attack mode and attempt to shame, mock and intimidate me. How dare I not group-think with all the group-thinkers. Darn!
I can’t know why you are being so aggressive, rather than diplomatic in your approach, but you have lost a great many people by your choice of attitude. Count me right on that opinion. I know I am.
The United States owes you nothing simply because you are here. A fact you need to come to terms with.
People can believe all immigration should be “legal immigration” without being the slightest bit racist.
You don’t like being labeled “illegal”? Well, many don’t like being falsely accused of being racist either.
Your behavior – you that I am addressing – is liken to slugging someone and then expecting them to be your friend and oh so grateful. How dare they not wish to welcome you into their home? How dare they not rush to every hilltop and claim you to deserve all things you wish for simply because you do?
The irony… the big irony… is all that you missed in the rescinding of DACA, as you reacted emotionally, rather than with thought.
President Trump actually did you a favor.
Obama’s Executive Order was unconstitutional. It’s coverage – your deportation – was always pending and placing you all at the mercy of a court order that could come at any moment. There was no safety or security to behold. How could you have missed that little fact? Shouldn’t that have upset you just a little bit?
Trump rescinded an unconstitutional Executive Order and bumped it over to Congress. You know, that body of elected officials that draft, propose & pass legislation? He did you a favor. If you hadn’t let emotions get the best of you – you might have realized that.
Take note of all those people in Congress that think Trump is simply awful for having rescinded the Executive Order and then ask them what they are going to do about it. Ask them what legislation they are going to submit (or vote for) to address this problem that has been plaguing all of us. Yes, all of us. You aren’t the only ones affected by all that has transpired.
I know it is easy to think you got the short end of the stick, but it isn’t just you. Lot’s of people have been badly affected by this whole mess. It’s time that reality be faced. It’s time that activist, or simple rear-ends that love to stir trouble, stop with all these false accusations and attempts to destroy and demean any that don’t jump on the band wagon of their choice and yours.
It’s time to think with logic, rather than respond with emotion.
Trump did you a favor!
Perhaps it is time for you to figure that out and start acting with respect, rather than tantrum protesting with all the screaming of demands and hurling of insults. Yes, perhaps it time you stop and think how you got in this position, who didn’t fix it when they could and how insecure your position has been all along. Then think who has taken steps to bring about a permanent fix. That would be Trump – the President of the United States! The man you wrongly curse.

Dear Representative Gowdy:
It is with great sorrow that I write to you today! Yes, sorrow. I feel as though I am at the execution of my best friend and finding there is nothing I can do to stop the wrongful killing of justice. A killing so wrongful that the cries of the people are relentless and piercing. Can’t you hear them?
You trusted Mueller in spite of the teams he was compiling? How is that possible? Even us lowly voters saw the deck was being stacked and not in a good and fair way, yet you were never suspicious? I don’t understand.
The leaks continue. Leaks that are always meant to harm our president and his administration. Leaks that are meant to take him down and void our vote. You know – the vote of the people. The vote that made Trump the legitimate President of the United States. Does that even matter anymore?
We watch as the liberals lie, cheat and bully in an attempt to de-legitimize the election and take down the president we voted for. We watch as few Republicans do anything to stop this wrongful attempt. We watch as people who claim to believe in the Constitution and our system – just shrug their shoulders and pretend all is working as it is supposed to.
Well, it’s not. It’s not working as it is supposed to.
The FBI director selectively answered questions. He answered when it would look bad on President Trump and claimed he couldn’t answer, if it would look good for him. You know, like the fact that Trump wasn’t under investigation though media & officials made the world think he was.
Lie by omission matters. It matters a great deal.
Rep. Gowdy, I have no doubt you have lived a squeaky clean life, but I bet even you are vulnerable to the evil and corruption that we are witnessing. Yes, I bet that if the media and so many in Congress set out to discredit you, that even your reputation and proven action couldn’t withstand their relentless attacks – not if you were standing against them alone. How would you feel then? How would you feel if it was you, rather than Trump, that was targeted for wrongful destruction?
I’m disappointed that you and a few others that I have trusted are doing so little, if anything to stand up for President Trump.
It’s simple really.
You don’t have to like Trump. That isn’t a requirement. However, if you are to claim you believe in the Constitution… believe in our system… believe in justice and the courts – you must stand up and fight fiercely even for Trump- the man we elected president. Otherwise, there is little hope of anything being right ever again.
Today we helplessly watch the corrupted laugh. We watch it because those in power are either using their power wrongly or not at all. We watch it because those who could make a difference have chosen not to and have closed their ears to our pleas to be the warriors they were sent to Congress to be.
Today we helplessly watch as truth and justice are being devoured in a pit of the wrongfully executed.
We may be helpless to fight the swamp beasts but you are not. Will you help us by helping President Trump?
With Hope that Evil Hasn’t Already Won,
A Legally Registered Voter
KAREN HANDEL FOR CONGRESS. She will fight for lower taxes, great healthcare strong security-a hard worker who will never give up! VOTE TODAY
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 20, 2017
Trump won. It is reality. It doesn’t matter if people like it or not. It doesn’t matter if liberals (some allegedly paid) take to the streets and destroy every city block in every city throughout the US. Nothing is changed. Nothing except the new ways that the liberals try to change the results to fit their reality. New ways like the alleged death threats to members of the electoral college and Dr. Jill Stein’s sudden last minute recount demands to supposedly ensure the integrity of the election. The madness is upon us and only getting more bizarre.
According to The Detroit News article, “Michigan electors cite threats over Trump vote“, (Michael Gerstein – 11/17/16) Michael Banerian has received numerous emails wishing him to change his vote – some even threatening him if he didn’t.
“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”
The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth. Banerian said he deleted the rest of the emails and messages “because as you can imagine they’re clogging up my email.”
Are we to assume the radical liberals misread the memo that suggested the Trump supporters would turn violent and thought it was a call for them to do so? Or… perhaps… it is the radical liberal that is prone to the violence they claim of others.
Banerian is merely one of the victims of the liberal attack. There are others. Simply put – one is too many. It isn’t acceptable behavior by anyone or any side. It needs to be stopped and it needs to be stopped immediately. As a matter of fact – those who threatened violence – should be arrested. Perhaps a visit in the local jail and appearance before a judge will finally lead them to realization that threatening someone’s life is actually a serious matter that gets people in serious trouble – even them.
But who knows.
Modern day radical liberals seem to live in some other universe, where they see themselves entitled to have all things their way at all times.
Truth and integrity seem to be irrelevant.
Intolerance is their way of life as hate is spewed in the name of love and tolerance.
Irrational is a kind description as the liberals stand with those who kill women, children and gays, while calling the conservative a threat and so awful for having offended by word or differing opinion.
The radical liberal can’t seem to accept a loss. Instead, this type of person appears to seek out technicalities to destroy wins they don’t like. Dr. Jill Stein seems to have joined the latter group with her last minute attempts to call for recounts in three states. Not surprising, the three states she picked are ones that Trump won.
Liberals have asked what Trump supporters are scared of. Unbelievable. The radical liberal trying to play innocent, when the death threats, riots and destruction makes quite clear they are not.
The madness is no longer a mere annoyance. It is destroying our country. It is destroying our relationships. It has no path to righteousness, justice or the pursuit of happiness. It is time to stop the movement of insanity and tantrums and return to logic and common sense. With Trump – the one who fairly won the election – we shall have a chance to escape the madness of radical liberalism and return to the United State of America where PC once again stands for Personal Computer.
The madness of radical liberalism is on notice.
Time for change.

Chris Christie: ‘Imagine if it were me who deleted my emails?’
By Lloyd Marcus
My brother texted me in Florida reporting from Baltimore, our hometown. He said the thugs have gotten crazy and need to be dealt with. My nephew who is a video journalist said it was appalling witnessing local black ministers arguing over street corners for their group of protesters, jockeying for position for the TV cameras.
A friend called interrupting me watching Bizarre Foods TV show, wanting to know if I was watching the coverage of the Baltimore riots. Upon turning the channel to watch the mainstream media coverage, I had to turn the channel away from it. It was too much to stomach.
All I saw was people behaving badly; from Baltimore’s insanely liberal mayor to black talking head liberal operatives spewing idiotic excuses to domestic terrorist thugs turning the city into a war zone.
I thought, I have seen this stupid evil horror movie before (Ferguson) and I “ain’t gonna” watch it again.
The media is reporting that some black leaders are calling for peace. Well, I am sorry, but that is too little too late. How do you expect black youths to react to the Left’s orchestrated campaign to convince them that white Republicans and conservatives are racist and out to get them; white cops murder them at will, the rich got rich stealing from them and business owners are selfish and evil?
These lies have been sold to black youths by the highest black voices in the country – Obama, Oprah, Democrats, Sharpton, Holder, Jackson, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and assorted other race exploiting scumbags. If I sound angry it is because I am.
What was that mantra George’s dad on Seinfeld used to keep calm? Oh yeah, he said, “Serenity now! Serenity now!”
Enough with this hogwash that Christians should not get angry. The bad behavior destroying peoples’ livelihood in Baltimore and the nuanced response to it should make decent honorable people angry.
The Baltimore riots and other incidents of black mob attacks and assaults on innocent whites across America are the result of the Left’s hoax that blacks are victimized in America; perpetrating hate for political gain. http://bit.ly/1GEgNAf Such evil should make decent Americans angry.
When Jesus turned over the tables of the crooks in the temple, he was angry. Jesus even called evil doers names, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Jesus pretty much expressed my thoughts regarding modern day black so-called civil rights leaders.
I am not advocating bad behavior from our side. The Bible says, be angry, but sin not. I am advocating that we stop putting up with it. These thugs do this stuff because they can.
I still can not wrap my head around the mayor of Baltimore saying the thugs must be protected and given space “to destroy.” http://bit.ly/1bA6vUa
In essence, the liberal mayor is saying that taxpayer businesses are acceptable collateral damage. I mean, who cares? Most of the trashed businesses are probably owned by rich white racists. Their ancestors probably owned slaves. So, they deserve it.
I am sick of it folks, liberal officials, liberal talking heads and liberal media justifying, tolerating and even celebrating bad behavior.
My brother asked if I noticed that all the blacks heralded as modern day civil rights heroes are criminals? I said, “Great observation grasshopper,” impressed by my low-info-voter brother.
Trayvon Martin was shot while attacking George Zimmerman. http://usat.ly/1HUg2Dp I remembered watching a youtube video of Alabama State marching band honoring the thug, spelling out “Trayvon” on the field. I thought, you have got to be kidding me. http://bit.ly/1DTmGm3
Equally frustrating is that all the black outrage, anger and violence is based on lies. For example. It has been proven that witnesses lied about Michael Brown after robbing a Ferguson convenience store and assaulting the clerk had his hands up in surrender to police. Brown was shot while attacking a police officer. http://bit.ly/1PSQYh8 And yet, from the Grammy Awards to pro football players running out of the tunnel with their hands up, the lie, slander of America’s police and hatred was furthered and nurtured.
Serenity now! Serenity now!
Meanwhile, truly extraordinary black role models such as retired black neurosurgeon Dr Ben Carson continue to be rejected and despised by black civil rights leaders. Only blacks who hate America with victim mindsets need apply for membership in their black civil rights movement club.
Blacks angry because of high black unemployment and poor economic conditions need look no further than their messiah (small m), Obama and his job killing policies and mountain of new outrageous regulations.
So please forgive me folks, my blood pressure can not take getting sucked into watching 24/7 sympathetic media coverage of this latest episode of Blacks Behaving Badly, Baltimore edition.
If the mayor of Baltimore and liberal media are going to take a don’t-make-the-black-kids-angry approach to dealing with white bystanders being brutalized http://bit.ly/1J6G3fZ, businesses being destroyed, looting and chaos in the streets, there is nothing I can do about it. Someone said voters get the government they deserve. Baltimore is notorious for electing liberals.
While I pray for my former hometown, I must emotionally sit this one out.

Hillary Clinton thinks it is all a big joke that she lied? She thinks it is funny? So funny that she tells Jay Leno on the Tonight Show that she was afraid she wouldn’t make it to the studio because she was pinned down by sniper fire? And this is a person running for president?
Did Hillary also think it was funny when Zeifman is said to have fired her and one of the reasons claimed was for lying? (“Shocking Revelations about Hillary Clinton’s Watergate Committee Job” by Rick Moran – April 2, 2008 and More on Hillary’s Unethical Watergate Conduct by Bob Ellis – April 3, 2008 .)
There is something wrong with someone that can get caught lying and then go on television and try to make it a comedy routine. Lying should bring feelings such as regret and shame — not light-heartedness, laughter and the attitude of, “Yep, I lied. Hehe isn’t that funny? You caught me! Hehe oh my side hurts from laughing so hard. Want to hear another one?”
People need to take a step back and give this matter some serious thought.
Parents need to consider how they would feel if their child lied and then acted like it was a joking matter — something to brag about. Employees need to consider how they would feel if a co-worker or boss lied. What if it was a teacher, minister, police officer, or doctor? Wouldn’t there be a trust issue? Wouldn’t people note the inappropriate reaction to being caught in a lie and wonder what was wrong with the person?

I woke up to a clip of Bill Clinton blaming the media for what he considers unjust coverage of Hillary’s “misstatement” of the 1995 Bosnia trip. Poor Hillary, it was late at night, he claims. Besides the fact that the trip was in 1996, rather than 1995, he had some other facts wrong, too.
Hillary made the sniper fire statement on more than one occasion, contrary to his claim of once and at 11 at night when she was supposedly tired. But, of course, it wasn’t his fault he brought it up again, or that Hillary lied in the first place — it was all the fault of the media.
Speaking of confusing the facts when it is late at night — if Hillary gets that confused at 11 PM, just how confused is she going to be at 3 AM when that phone rings?
Then we have Bill, who apparently can’t get things right in the light of day, yet he has no hesitation blaming the media for worrying about it or reporting it. How dare they? That’s unfair coverage according to Clinton it would seem.
The Clintons also suggest that Hillary was the only first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to visit a combat zone. Guess Pat Nixon and Barbara Bush don’t count. Maybe the Clintons meant to say the only “Democrat” first lady and it just “slipped their minds” to add that little added description.
Bill did give me an additional chuckle. He suggests when others get to be 60 (which Hillary is) that they might forget something when they are tired at 11 P.M., too. Is he saying, that at 60, people start getting to be feeble-minded and we should over-look their forgetfulness on major issues — like being shot at? Yep, I want a feeble-minded president that confuses smiles, hand shakes, welcomes and a little girl’s poem with sniper fire and need to duck and run immediately to waiting vehicles.
Did I mention that if Hillary gets THAT confused at 11 PM, we might have concern about a 3 AM call? Oh well… never mind, I’m sure if she gets too confused, it will be the media’s fault and she can always go talk to Jay Leno about it.

Greta Van Susteren slammed the mainstream media for its lack of reporting on the U.S. Marine veteran who has been held in Iran’s worst prison for more than three years.
On Thursday, Williams returned to the show to discuss the case again, in light of the announcement by the Obama administration of a framework agreement on Iran’s nuclear program
Hekmati, an Iranian-American, was born in Arizona but held dual citizenship when he flew to Iran to visit his ailing grandmother.
Hekmati was arrested and charged with spying for the United States. He was sentenced to death, but that sentence was reversed and he was sentenced to 10 years in prison on a lesser charge.
Williams said a few days ago that Hekmati is in a dire situation, being whipped and forced to take drugs so that he could be tortured with the withdrawal symptoms.
On Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry said conversations are continuing on the release of American prisoners. Others known to be held include American pastor Saeed Abedini and former FBI agent Bob Levinson.
Williams said he has “no idea” what Kerry meant with that statement.
President Obama declared Thursday that the proposed agreement satisfies the United States’ “core objectives.”
Williams pushed back, asking Greta how Obama could say that while these Americans remain imprisoned.
“Would not getting an American soldier back from the grips of a terrorist country that is torturing him be one of our objectives? So I don’t understand what that meant,” said Williams.
He added that the State Department may think he’s “pompous” for speaking out about this and demanding to know more.
But he said he only wants the administration to provide more information to the public.
“Don’t call me. Tell the American public what you’re doing. Since you and I started talking about this, there have been 18 million impressions of people in America looking at the story. That means America wants to know: how dare we make a deal and even contemplate signing one in a month, without bringing our citizens home? I don’t get it,” he said. (Click to continue reading)

Montel: How Dare We Make a Deal With Iran While Americans Are Still Held?!
Screams pierce the night, as sirens wail against the blasts that light up the darkness in a fury of pure hatred. Smoke smothers the air. People seek to flee, running in desperation, but with no destination, except away… away from the blasts and the stench of burning flesh.
How long? How long has there been warning unheeded? Warning mocked as mere delusions of some? How long has the laughter rolled from the lips of the all-knowing and all-enlightened ones? Does it now matter?
Hearts pumping wildly as sweat flows freely. Blasts closer and closer. Breathing loud and labored against the sounds of people stampeding in blind flight. Away. Away from the nightmare and the murder surrounding and encircling. The nightmare devouring hope, with lungs fighting frantically for the next breath. Just one more breath. The breath that doesn’t come. The awareness of suffocation.
The terror. The tears. The prayers.
Suffocating. Falling. Numbness. Nothingness.
A silence that no one hears.

‘This Is Wrong!’ Megyn Takes on Richard Fowler Over Reid’s Romney Tax Claim
“I just think it’s politics at its finest,” Fowler said, arguing that it’s the job of politicians to evade the truth.
They believed Obama’s truth but not Romney’s truth?
Excuse me, Mr. Fowler! A lie is not someone’s truth.
It is a lie!
It remains a lie no matter how many times someone claims it to be the truth.
Dear Fellow Citizens:
Do YOU believe that “lying” is politics at its finest?
Do you believe the best liar should win?

On March 18, 2005, my sister, Terri Schiavo, began her thirteen day agonizing death after the feeding tube – supplying her food and water – was removed. Terri was cognitively disabled and had difficulty swallowing and therefore needed a feeding tube. Terri was not on any “life support”, nor was she sick or dying. Nonetheless, she received her death sentence ordered by Circuit Court Judge, George W. Greer of Pinellas County Florida.
Greer’s order to remove Terri’s feeding tube was in response to her estranged husband and guardian, Michael Schiavo, requesting permission from the court to kill his disabled wife. This was after Schiavo began cohabitating with his fiancée and stood to inherit Terri’s medical trust fund, which at the time was close to $800,000.
However, more disturbing was that the judge ruled to kill Terri, despite her mother and father pleading with Schiavo, and the court, to allow them to take her home. In fact, a guardian ad litem urged Judge Greer to refuse the dehydration request. Instead, this legally-required protector of Terri was dismissed from the original case by Greer and no replacement was ever appointed.
March 31st marks a very sad day; and this year, it will be the ten year anniversary of Terri’s death. Rush Limbaugh described it this way, “the day our country hit rock bottom”.
Terri’s case divided the nation and it will be discussed in high schools and college medical ethics classrooms for years to come. It is the anniversary of the death of a young woman who simply had a disability and needed basic and ordinary care to live, and a family who wanted to love and care for her just as she was.
With it being the 10 year anniversary, calls from the media have increased. Most of the articles are excoriating Governor Jeb Bush for his defense of Terri when he was the Governor of Florida back in 2005. But I have noticed one question has been asked more than others – “What, if anything, has changed since Terri’s death?”
Yes, things have changed – they’ve gotten worse. Exactly how many persons are being killed like Terri every year is difficult to know, although I think the numbers would shock us. What we do know is that we have a very active and aggressive right to die movement.
There are many dynamics involved to successfully convince our general public that it’s “okay” to dehydrate and starve a human being to death. If I had to point to one of the major accomplishments, it is how the right to die forces have been able to reclassify feeding tubes as “medical treatment”. However, just as effective is how they’ve influenced the masses to buy into the notion that some persons are in fact, not persons. Consequently, these human “non-persons” have no “value” and can be killed.
This should be frightening to read. But it is true. Even more frightening is how this ideology has impacted and been accepted in our culture, in particular, our health care community.
This, along with changes in public policies, now puts life and death decisions in the hands of physicians, hospitals boards and ethics committees – basically strangers – in the place of family members.
After Terri died, my family’s experience, contesting this powerful right to die movement, led us to establish the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network, which seeks to raise public awareness of the looming culture of death, and to educate the public about care potentialities. Most importantly, however, is to help families in situations similar to what we experienced – loved ones in danger of being killed, like Terri.
Indeed, the calls from families for help have increased, and increased significantly, as the years have passed.
Why is this? How has the right to die agenda been able to efficaciously shift our attitudes to the point that is has become everyday practice to starve and dehydrate a person to death. The issue may see complex, however it seems to me that the answer is very clear. It is because they lie.
I saw it in my sister’s case and I see it in the stories from the families who call us. And one of the most pathetic lies out there is that killing someone by denying them food and water is a “peaceful” and “painless” experience, and the patently absurd notion that it is a “death with dignity”.
It’s important to differentiate that Terri’s condition, and countless others like her, is quite different from a situation where it may be medically appropriate to withhold food and fluids because a person is actively dying and their bodies are shutting down, no longer able to assimilate their food and hydration.
Nonetheless, the never-ending propaganda about the peaceable nature of forced dehydration compelled me to make public this image of my sister created from my memory. This (right) is what Terri looked like just before she died. It was horrible to see.
And yet, Schiavo’s attorney falsely told the public during a press conference, just days before Terri’s death, that she looked “beautiful”. This is what they want you to believe, not the harsh truth about the madness of what we permit in the rooms of hospitals, nursing homes and hospices every single day across this country.
These are the hard facts my family and I will have to live with for the rest of my life: After almost two weeks without food or water, my sister’s lips were horribly cracked, to the point where they were blistering. Her skin became jaundice with areas that turned different shades of blue. Her skin became markedly dehydrated from the lack of water. Terri’s breathing became rapid and uncontrollable, as if she was outside sprinting. Her moaning, at times, was raucous, which indicated to us the insufferable pain she was experiencing. Terri’s face became skeletal, with blood pooling in her deeply sunken eyes and her teeth protruding forward. Even as I write this, I can never properly describe the nightmare of having to watch my sister have to die this way.
What will be forever seared in my memory is the look of utter horror on my sister’s face when my family visited her just after she died.
Those pushing this agenda will certainly deny this, they have to. But there was a reason the court ordered that no cameras or video be permitted in Terri’s room while she was being killed. They claimed privacy issues. My family knows otherwise. And they do too.
So when will this heartlessness end? When will the lies end? When will the American people decide this insanity has to stop?
I don’t know. But I do know this – the lies will never end.
