Just Cannot Get Over It And Deal With and/or Accept Reality. Nunes Explains. Bad Humor.

Last night we went to a performance of The Savannah Music Festival and a very prominent citizen and his wife were sitting close by.  During intermission we said hello to each other and I inquired how he was and he responded he would be better but for Trump.

I should have asked him to cite some specific examples that caused him indigestion but instead I said I thought Trump was doing fine and would be doing better if the opposition did not seek to road block him and Trump's own party was not so schizophrenic.

My wife said I took his comments too seriously because he was only trying to make small talk. Perhaps she is right but I am sick and tired of listening to Liberal Jews mouth off about Trump.  The man has been in office some 60 plus days and is trying to undo the damage of 8 years.

What has he done that is so bad?  He has lessened illegal immigration, he is trying to end sanctuary cities whose continuance is being fostered by those who believe in anarchy.  How can anyone justify defying a federal law that demands illegal aliens, who commit heinous crimes, not be detained and  turned over to Federal Agents be deported?  How can anyone claim they should be protected so they can repeat their offenses against American citizens?  I thought we fought a Civil War to determine that secession was not a good idea? I also thought we were a nation that was based on adherence to the rule of law.

Let's see what other nefarious endeavors Trump has been engaged in doing?  He claims Obama bugged his building.  Obama did not bug his building but, no doubt, he saw to it that others did bug many of those engaged in Trump's campaign. Obama is smart enough not to have his finger prints on anything so revealing.

Trump, acting through his Sec. of State, has informed the Chinese and N Koreans we do not like what they are doing.  Trump has informed the U.N, through Amb. Haley, they should stop with their anti-Semtism.  Trump has sought to rebuild our relationship with Israel. Trump has dispatched troops to rid the Middle East of ISIS and has called them Islamic terrorists.  (How dare he!)

Worst of all, Trump  supported the leader of his party in the House to rid the nation of Obamacare and was led down a path of defeat because The Speaker did not have the necessary votes to support a new piece of legislation that was probably worse than Obamacare.

Trump is now seeking to change our tax laws in the hope they will stimulate the economy and open job opportunities.  He has eliminated, by executive order, many rules and regulations that have stifled economic growth and strangled entrepreneurs.  He told Iran he will be more restrictive towards enforcing Obama's terrible legislation that allows Iran to become a nuclear power and thumb its nose at the world while threatening The West and our Middle Eastern allies.

Yes, Trump has engaged in tweeting which drives the mass media up the wall because it downplays their power and displays as much contempt for them as they display towards him.

He is seeking legislation that will end federal funding of many projects, some good some not so good, in order to rebuild our military without radically increasing our deficits. Yes, his wife has chosen to stay in New York until June when she will assume a more active role as First Lady.

I am sure I have missed a few things but, unless you are just unwilling to accept the fact that Trump was duly elected, I find nothing he has done to date that offensive but then I voted for the dude.

Liberals get testy when they cannot have it all their way.  They consider themselves to be special, to be above whatever law they do not like and believe they know best. When they speak they believe what they say must be so because they say it and they find it very difficult to accept defeat.  In fact they reject their own role in their own defeat because they believe they can breathe even though they bury their heads in the sand or worse stick them up some other place.

Liberals feel they are very special and to prove it they have tied our nation up in knots with PC garbage. If God really cares about America I beg him to save us from the do gooders.
What did Nunes say he did. (See 1 below.)
These jokes were falsely attributed to Andy Rooney.  I culled some of the more distasteful and kept these 5. (See immediately below.)

1. My wife is a sex object. Every time I suggest sex, she objects. 

2. I tried phone sex once, but the holes in the dial were too small. 

3. Marriage is the only war where you get to sleep with the enemy. 

4. Question: Why do men find it difficult to make eye contact?
                Answer: Breasts don't have eyes. 

                5) Despite the old saying, 'Don't take your troubles to bed',                         many men still sleep with their wives!

1) Devin Nunes explains what he did at the White House

By Eli Lake

For the last few days, much of Washington has been obsessed with what Rep. Devin Nunes did last Tuesday evening. That was the night before Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, made the explosive allegation that he had viewed dozens of intelligence reports, obtained through government eavesdropping that inappropriately included details about the Trump transition team.

According to a Daily Beast report later over the weekend, Nunes went off the grid that night to meet a source and view dozens of intelligence reports, including accounts of meetings involving President Donald Trump's advisers.

Then it gets weirder. CNN is now reporting that Nunes had in fact slipped off to the White House grounds last Tuesday to view the documents. And then on Wednesday, after briefing reporters on what he had found in those intelligence reports, he went back to the White House to inform the president.

On the surface, none of this looks good for Nunes, who is in charge of his committee's bipartisan investigation into all things Trump and Russia. Why would Nunes need to brief the president on documents he viewed at a facility on White House grounds?
In an interview Monday, Nunes told me that he ended up meeting his source on the White House grounds because it was the most convenient secure location with a computer connected to the system that included the reports, which are only distributed within the executive branch. "We don't have networked access to these kinds of reports in Congress," Nunes said. He added that his source was not a White House staffer and was an intelligence official.

Nunes, it should be said, has a history of cultivating independent sources inside the intelligence community. He made contact, for example, with the U.S. intelligence contractors who ended up saving most of the Americans stuck in the Benghazi outpost when it was attacked on Sept. 11, 2012. More recently, Nunes has reached out to his network of whistleblowers to learn about pressure inside the military's Central Command on analysts to write positive reports on the U.S. campaign against the Islamic State.

In this case, Nunes had been hearing for more than a month about intelligence reports that included details on the Trump transition team, and had been trying to view them himself. He told me that when he finally saw the documents last Tuesday evening, he made sure to copy down their identifying numbers so he could request access to them formally for the rest of the committee.

So let's look at the bigger picture.

Trump has claimed that what Nunes found out vindicates his tweets from more than three weeks ago accusing Barack Obama of illegally tapping his wires at Trump Tower. Nunes has repeatedly said this claim is literally false.

Yet Nunes has also said the reports he viewed included information that should not have been widely distributed inside the government.

In some cases, he said the names of Trump advisers caught up incidentally in the eavesdropping were not expunged from surveillance reports as those of U.S. persons should have been.

Most important, Nunes told me these reports were sent to the Obama White House among other executive branch agencies.
Nunes until now had only said the reports he viewed were widely distributed inside the government.

"The reports included details about the Trump transition, meetings of Trump and senior advisers, they were distributed throughout the intelligence community and to the White House," Nunes said. "In some cases, there was additional unmasking of Trump transition team officials."

This is suggestive, though not yet proof, that White House officials privy to the Russia investigation wanted keep tabs on Trump and his advisers in the period after the election and before his inauguration.
It also fits together with other facts in this story as well.

For example, on March 1, the New York Times reported that Obama White House officials sought to preserve intelligence in the final days and weeks of his presidency on Team Trump's connections to Russia and Russia's campaign to influence the election.
Though Nunes says the reports he viewed had nothing to do with Russia.
