It seems Republicans would not have approved of the Boston Tea PArty – but just 8 short years ago – came the tea party.
Oh I see. Only Republicans can protest………

“Since the election of President Trump, Republican lawmakers in at least 18 states have introduced or voted on legislation to curb mass protests in what civil liberties experts are calling ‘an attack on protest rights throughout the states,’” the Washington Post reports.

“The son of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was detained for hours by immigration officials at a Florida airport,” a family friend told the Louisville Courier-Journal’.
“Officials held and questioned Ali Jr. for nearly two hours, repeatedly asking him, ‘Where did you get your name from?’ and ‘Are you Muslim?’ When Ali Jr. responded that yes, he is a Muslim, the officers kept questioning him about his religion and where he was born’.
‘Ali Jr. was born in Philadelphia in 1972 and holds a U.S. passport.”
Did Donald Truup direct Lt. General Mike Flynn to talk to the Russian Amabassador about sanctions?
Did Donald Trump direct Reince Priebus to talk to FBI Director Comey to deny to reporters that there was contact between the Trump people and the Russian people?
The later is a direct violation of policy – the White House trying to influence inestigations by the FBI.
But if Trump DID NOT direct Flynn and Priebus – then who is in charge at the White House?
Apparently not DOnald Trump.
DOnald J. Trump is lying and trying to cover up his ignorance of how governement is suppose to work – you know the Constiturion.
Of course if FBI Director Comey has not discussed another open investigation, we wouldn’t be looking into Trump’s cover up.
Washington (CNN) ‘The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump’s associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, multiple US officials briefed on the matter tell CNN’.
‘White House officials had sought the help of the bureau and other agencies investigating the Russia matter to say that the reports were wrong and that there had been no contacts, the officials said. The reports of the contacts were first published by The New York Times and CNN on February 14′.
‘The White House official said that Priebus later reached out again to McCabe and to FBI Director James Comey asking for the FBI to at least talk to reporters on background to dispute the stories’.
‘Comey rejected the request for the FBI to comment on the stories, according to sources, because the alleged communications between Trump associates and Russians known to US intelligence are the subject of an ongoing investigation’.
How far do Americans let this go?
Fox News host Sean Hannity recently shared a tweet calling Republican Arizona Senator John McCain a “globalist war criminal” and linking to a fake news story about the senator.
“Wow if true,” Hannity tweeted Wednesday night. [UPDATE (12:07 PM): The tweet has been deleted]
Hey Sean…..Ever here of ‘screen shot’?
‘In related news, Gateway Pundit has just been granted White House press credentials’.
‘McCain is a decorated veteran who spent six years in a North Vietnamese prisoner-of-war camp and was subjected to frequent torture. He has never been credibly accused of war crimes’.
‘The tweet Hannity shared links to notoriously inaccurate conservative site Gateway Pundit. “Wikileaks released documents this week following the sudden death of Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin…” they report’.
“According to Reddit users, John McCain illegally asked for campaign donations from the Russian Ambassador (the same ambassador that died suddenly on Monday.) This globalist shrieks about Russian influence while he himself participated in it.”
‘The document the story is based on is old however, released by WikiLeaks back in 2008’.
‘The Russian embassy told the BBC at the time that there wasn’t a nefarious request from McCain, they just received a standard McCain fundraising appeal in the mail’.
“It sounds like they’re having a little fun at our expense,” said McCain’s spokesman Brian Rogers. “It’s just an error.”
“It’s evident that [the letter] was a mistake,” his Russian counterpart agreed. “It happens.”
