[Townhall] Well, well, well‐what do we have here; FBI officials discussing a media leak strategy during the Trump-Russia investigation, specifically when key developments are about to be revealed to the public. The new batch of texts was released by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), where disgraced former FBI Agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page communicate about a possible media leak strategy between FBI and DOJ officials between April 10 and 12 of 2017. The Daily Caller has more:
Sort of began at the top with director Comey and the NY Times did it not? By his (Comey's) own admission, and nothing has come of it.

[ZeroHedge] We may never know why Rahm Emanuel decided to drop out of the Chicago mayoral race. But the media is certainly giving him a pass. They say he simply dropped out for fear of losing. But there’s a far more likely reason than that.
Emanuel is smart, and the smart reason for leaving is glaring: He doesn’t want to risk becoming "mayor bankruptcy." Chicago is a ticking time bomb and Emanuel is jumping ship just in case it goes off.
Don’t dismiss that scenario too quickly. Despite his lofty intentions when he first took office, Emanuel has failed miserably to reform the city’s finances. Now the risk of insolvency is rising.
Chicago’s financials are dire and the city has no plan and no reserves to survive an inevitable recession. In fact, the city has barely kept its head above the water despite a decade of national economic growth. Chicago Public Schools was already at the brink of bankruptcy just one year ago.
Rahm knows the risks of collapse are rising. He’s passed property tax hikes, emptied the reserves and employed every budget trick he can to make the numbers "better." He’s even sold off public assets ‐ the city’s future sales tax revenues ‐ to "shore up" the city’s finances, and yet Chicago is still junk rated by Moody’s.
CPS is in even deeper junk territory ‐ far lower than even Detroit. And that’s after the state poured more money in as the result of a new funding formula.

House Republicans on Monday released plans for a second round of tax cuts, which follow comprehensive tax legislation enacted in December, just two months ahead of the midterms. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) on Monday unveiled the package of three bills touted as a sequel to the 2017 GOP tax law.
...The three pieces of legislation proposed by Republicans on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee would make permanent lower individual rates, eliminate the maximum age for some contributions to retirement accounts and allow new businesses to write off more start-up costs, among other provisions Reuters reported.
[NEWSBUSTERS.ORG] A famed Broadway actress is joining Hollywood’s crusade against President Trump ‐ by asking for president-assassinator John Wilkes Booth.
On Sunday, TMZ asked 94-year-old television and Broadway actress Carole Cook (Sixteen Candles, 42nd Street) about President Trump and a recent performance of Frozen. During the musical’s curtain call, one actor grabbed and threw away a "Trump 2020" banner from an audience member. While Cook hadn’t heard of the incident, she responded, "Where is John Wilkes Booth when you need him?"
Her husband, Tom Troupe, explained who Booth was: "He killed presidents," or, more particularly, he shot President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. He’s just a few years too late to hunt Trump. "He killed presidents?" Plural? Did he get Garfield and McKinley, too?
"Don’t say that," Cook joked back at Troupe. "They’ll get me for that." A few seconds later, she checked, "Will I be on an enemies list? My God, I hope so." If there really was one, she wouldn't be so insouciant.
"Just keep me out of jail," she concluded. "Or maybe not."
The Secret Service wants to hear from the veteran TV star who thinks it would be a good idea for someone to "John Wilkes Booth" President Trump.
Sources connected with the Agency tell TMZ, Carole Cook's comments to our photog when she left Craig's restaurant Sunday night were enough to trigger an official inquiry.
Waterboard her. She's 94 and thinks she's got nothing to lose for being a pretension attention-whore asshole. Remind her how "95 looks pretty good". Any any of her posse that put her up to this.
"You were born in 1926. You've seen incredible evil. Don't go out as a joke or stupid"

Jesus, couldn't you just take away her sucralose or something? Okay, I just watched the clip... never mind. Feel kinda bad for her, though. Imagine the poison she's been steeped in for the past fifty-plus years... McCain, if he'd never come home, like.
To be highly amusing for all involved except the named gentlemen and their supporters...
[MEDIAITE] President Trump is expected to declassify, as early as this week, documents covering the U.S. government’s surveillance of Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the investigative activities of senior Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr, according to allies of the president.

The left is wratcheding up their attacks before the midterms (anonymous op-eds, Woodward, etc.) to drain the enthusiasm of Trump voters, along with other "impeachment" bullshit to fire up theirs.
It does seem like Trump is very much aware of it and is slowly releasing things that make the left look like the crooked body it is.
Quick, Nurse — her green pills! She’s frothing at the mouth and twitching again!
[AmericanMirror] Mad Maxine Waters is obsessed with President Trump.
The California Congresswoman went after the president while accepting an award from the Stonewall Young Democrats on Saturday in Los Angeles.
At one point in the 20-minute speech, she bragged about threatening Trump supporters.
Speaking about Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s apology to Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the dozens of people interrupting his confirmation hearing this week, Waters said, "We don’t ask permission to protest. We protest," triggering cheers.
"When we understand that we have to make America hear us and see us, and understand that we all have something to say," she said, before adding she was going to give Feinstein a piece of her mind.
Waters went on to boast about when she urged her supporters to find Trump administration officials and harass them.
"There are those who said we lacked civility when I got up and talked about the President’s Cabinet, and I said if you see them anywhere, if you see them at a restaurant, if you see them in a department store, even at a gasoline station, just tell them you’re not welcome here or anywhere," she said to wild cheers.
"And so, it frightened a lot of people, and of course the lying president said that I had threatened all of his constituents," Waters said.
"I did not threaten his constituents, his supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do it that time," she said.
Speaking about the Stonewall group, Waters said, "When I compare what you’re doing with what we have in Washington, D.C., in the highest office in the land, I wake up in the middle of the night and all I can think about is I’m gonna get him.
"I’m gonna get him. I’m gonna get him," she repeated.
"I’m in this fight and I’m not gonna move," she told the crowd. "And, as you know, there’s a difference in how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this.
"They say, ’Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore.’
"And when they say that, I say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment," she said to applause.
Waters told the crowd she won’t stop with Trump.
"I had a conversation here today with someone asked, ’Well, what about Pence? If you are able to impeach, Pence will be worse,'" she recollected.
"Well, I said, ’Look, one at a time.’
"You knock one down, one at a time," she said.
"You knock one down, and we’ll be ready for Pence. We’ll get him, too," she vowed.

If Mad Max is so obsessed with impeachment, maybe we should impeach her. I think if one follows the money, there are in her background impeachable offenses. She has a $4.3 mil mansion on a $174,000/yr salary.
[Front Page] Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing was the beginning of the Democrat 2020 primaries, and the winner was the Senate Democrat who yelled the worst possible thing.
That was Senator Cory Booker.
Unlike some Senate Dems, Booker didn’t just confine his attack to Brett Kavanaugh, a mild-mannered man widely beloved by both the Democrats and Republicans who worked with him, he went for broke.
The Founding Fathers were racist geniuses, Booker insisted. Their constitution was flawed. Originalism, interpreting the Constitution as it was written, rather than whatever social justice activist the Dems had managed to plant on the bench, is going to be racist and sexist, because its authors were deplorables.
“Native Americans were referred to as savages, women weren’t referred to at all, African Americans were referred to as fractions of human beings. As one civil-rights activist used to say ‘constitutu, constitu, I can only say three-fifths of the word,’” Booker bloviated.
Much have I travell'd in the realms of brass,
And many coastal states and boroughs seen;
Round many longish islands have I been,
Which bards and politicians hold first class.
Oft of one grey expanse had I been told
Where Satchmo slept serene beneath the green,
But never knew its queen, well-spoken, clean,
Till spoke out Alexandria loud and bold:
Then felt I like some connoisseur of lies
When new dissembler spins into his ken,
A wise barista, say, with crazy eyes
Who makes one minute chatting seem like ten,
Her face uplifted toward a distant prize
Or braying on the stump in Darien.
It was Western civilization that came to reject slavery as an institution.
It was Western cultural imperialism and intolerance that greatly reduced the global practice of slavery in the 19th century.
The 0.6 compromise was the result of the political rejection of slavery by a large faction of the Western populace.
This trivial historical insight is probably beyond a "civil rights leader" who changed his name to honor failed, corrupt, totalitarian sh*thole despots, who btw, as despots did claim ownership to their subjects.
