    We’re getting several conflicting stories re Rod Rosenstein and his temper tantrums, threats and insubordination. Perhaps the President plans to take charge and order the DOJ to release the requested information if it doesn’t conflict with any ongoing investigations. Who knows?

    Devin Nunes: Staff have felt threatened by Rod Rosenstein

    • If something isn’t actually DONE, meaning the corrupt are punished as the average person would be for the same actions, then this is all theater, a waste of time and our money, and our republic will continue to deteriorate, no matter how good the economy is.

      Only Nunes and Ryan will be given the documents. Ryan is totally corrupt so that leaves Nunes being the one person who will read them as written.

      Nunes is ready to hold Rosenstien in contempt and impeach him.

      Notice that when Nunes said that he is ready to move toward impeachment that he used Paul Ryan’s title “The Speaker of the House” rather than simply using his name. Why? Moving toward impeachment is being thwarted by Paul Ryan โ€œThe Speaker of the Houseโ€ because Ryan is a traitor. Laid it right in Ryanโ€™s creepy lap.

      President Trump knows exactly who Paul Ryan is, in the president’s own words an ineffectual leader and he is what President Trump finds most distasteful in any human being, disloyal.

      If you have friends still on the fence because of President Trump’s positive remarks about folks like Ryan have them watch the video that Trump had put together (or had put together) for Kim Un.

      Does anyone think that President Trump thinks that Kim Un is on equal footing with the President of The United States? Of course not. But. What is the greater good? Massage Kimโ€™s ego, give him an out, stand behind him and give the world the possibility of the denuclearization of North Korea.

      President Trump has said again and again, โ€œPeople donโ€™t understand that I am humble.โ€

      As Scott Adams says President Trump uses ego as a tool.

      President Trump also uses humility as a tool.

      One day all of these evil people such as Paul Ryan realize that they have been โ€œKimmed.โ€

      President Trump is going to demand the documents at the appropriate time.

      President Trump has showed us how he works.

      What he said about that swine Mitt Romney during the campaign;

      Mitt Romney โ€” Lost to Obama, Nasty, Angry, Jealous, Failure, Disloyal, Zero credibility, One of the dumbest and worst candidates in the history of Republican politics, If I told him to get down on his knees and beg he would have gotten down on his knees.

      Then candidate Trump became President Elect and said โ€œMehโ€ โ€œMaybe Iโ€™ll pick Mitt for SOSโ€.

      Then he gave us this beautiful picture, Mitt left empty handed but you can bet a buck President Rump learned more about his enemies during their โ€œinterviews.โ€

      โ€œHey Mitt, youโ€™ve just been Kimmed!โ€

  2. Morning everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Today’s state flower is the Massachusetts โ€“ Mayflower

    The above photo is a closeup, as this little flower is just 1/2 inch across when open.

    Early American settlers called the Massachusetts floral emblem (Trailing Arbutus) Mayflower because they saw it as the first flower of spring, & named it after their ship which carried them to North America in 1620. The mayflower was suggested as the state flower as early as 1893, & bills proposing it were introduced in 1900. Eventually school children would choose it as the stateโ€™s floral emblem in 1918. The delicate mayflower has been on the endangered list since 1925, & in 1925 it was protected by legislation stating that anyone who harms the Mayflower in anyway, on any public property, or ON ANYONEโ€™S LAND without written authority will be fined $50. Anyone who harms the mayflower WHILE IN DISGUISE OR AT NIGHTTIME will be fined $100.

    The Trailing Arbutus belongs to the Heath family & constitutes the only species of the genus. There are only two species of Trailing Arbutus, one in Japan, & the other is in North America. Technically, Trailing Arbutus is a shrub. A PATCH 2 FEET IN DIAMETER IS AT LEAST A DECADE OLD. It has oblong, hairy evergreen leaves as rough as sandpaper, 0.75โ€“2.5 inches long. The highly fragrant white, pink, or rosy five petaled flowers, which spread open in the form of a star, grows in dense clusters. The pink form is more unusual, as most wild colonies are white. Cross-fertilization, is accomplished largely by insects, as the plant is not adapted to wind fertilization. In order to blossom extremely early each spring, even with snow nearby, the Trailing Arbutus flower buds are already formed the previous autumn under leaves, resting close to the ground. You must search among the fallen leaves in early spring to see this well camouflaged wildflower with it’s exquisite fragrance. The small fruit is a fleshy, 5-chambered, many-seeded capsule that splits open at maturity. Ants then disperse the seeds. The Trailing Arbutus is a fussy little plant to say the least. Partial shade, an affinity for being near evergreens, sandy, woodland, aerated, acid soil below 5.0PH, a sufficient layer of partially decomposed organic debris, on a gravelly, well-drained subsoil, with a slope of at least 8%, & shelter from cold winds are its requirements for perfect conditions. The Trailing Arbutus generally does not do well when attempts are made to take it from its natural surroundings Gardeners should not transplant trailing-arbutus from the wild because it will perish.

    The above photo shows the plant on the forest floor, with a closeup insert of it being held to show the approximate actual size.

    The flowers are not large & showy, & the whole plant is easy to ignore, but those flowers have a marvelous fragrance, similar to jasmine. The scent hangs in the air if you get a sunny day, & then walk by the plant you can catch the fragrance. In spite of its demanding needs, it enjoyed a wide distribution generally in the eastern half of North America. This large area might lead one to imagine that these flowers are abundant, but actually they are becoming increasingly rare every year. This tiny flower with beautiful waxy, white to pink, flowers, coupled with their ambrosial scent, have sadly led to their almost total disappearance in many sections of their original range. A hundred years ago picking trailing arbutus was a popular spring time activity enjoyed by Victorian nature enthiusiasts. It was a fashionable custom for many years for people to decorate their homes with bowls & trays full of Trailing Arbutus lacing the air with its heavenly, spicy, fragrant perfume The tradition ended in the early part of the 20th Century after publicizing that the plant was becoming extinct, even though the mayflower originally covered entire hillsides, because of over-picking. Today, relatively few people have ever seen or even heard of the trailing arbutus (& maybe that’s a good thing), but a good many do commonly refer to several different native wildflowers as the Mayflower.

    Have a great day everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

    From our friend, Jack Cashill:

    How deep is the deep state? Look at history

    http://mobile.wnd.com/2018/06/how-deep-is-the-deep-state-look-at-history/

    โ€œDonโ€™t worry when you go on,โ€ Tommy Corcoran told John Stewart Service as he was about to enter the grand jury room. โ€œThis is double riveted from top to bottom.โ€ By โ€œdouble rivetedโ€ Corcoran meant the deal was sealed in every which way.

    When the DOJโ€™s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, releases his report on the Hillary Clinton email scandal, presumably on Thursday, the nation will have its first real sense of whether this investigation is โ€œdouble rivetedโ€ as well.

    For those wanting to know what a double riveted spy case smells like, there is no better source than M. Stanton Evansโ€™s indispensable 2007 book on Sen. Joe McCarthy and his era, โ€œBlacklisted by History.โ€

    This first act in John Serviceโ€™s own drama played out in 1945. Service, a foreign service officer in the employ of the State Department, had been arrested on espionage charges for passing confidential documents about China to his friends at a flagrantly pro-communist magazine called Amerasia.

    The FBI had Service dead to rights. J. Edgar Hoover called the case against him โ€œair tight.โ€ At the time, however, Hoover was struggling against a deep state far deeper than the one Donald Trump confronts today.

    In control of all branches of government for the previous 12 years, Democrats had allowed, in some cases encouraged, communists and their active sympathizers to root deeply into every relevant branch of the federal apparatus, State and Treasury most consequentially.

    Tommy โ€œthe Corkโ€ Corcoran, had served for years as FDRโ€™s fixer-in-residence. In the Service case, he proved to be as good as his word. The grand jury cleared Service on a 20-0 vote, which was proof enough for the media and many historians of Serviceโ€™s innocence.

    Unbeknownst to Corcoran at the time of his โ€œdouble rivetedโ€ comment, the new president, Harry Truman, had had the FBI wiretap his phones. He did so largely out of spite. Corcoran had opposed Trumanโ€™s nomination as vice-president in 1944.

    This is how honest historians like Evans know about Corcoranโ€™s mischief. The dishonest ones, and they are legion, prefer to think of Service and his cronies as victims of Republican witch hunters…

      Cashill brings up very good points. I always appreciate his writings. For those defending freedom and who desire the protection of American citizens from a leftist takeover, it’s always been a hard road. So much easier to go along and get along.

      Non-communists/leftists/progressives/liberals/Democrats do it for the money and the left does it for the same reason…they just lie to themselves a little bit more about why they need money. “Love of money is the root of all evil.” Money equals power. POWER OVER OTHER PEOPLE. Satan whispers that power to tell people what to do, when to do it, how to do it, where to do it, and why to do it makes you like God. As for the communists, satan just uses different language since they don’t believe there is a God; but they buy his song and dance just the same.

      Like I posted nextdoor, I was watching CBS doing a piece on the immigrant children’s center in Brownsville. They took videos of children without showing their faces, spewing the ‘borders on child abuse’ rhetoric while the videos showed kids playing video games, taking martial arts classes, watching big screen TV, making phone calls in booths set up for them…all in clean and modern surroundings. One major complaint was that while there were pictures of American presidents in the building’s corridor (quote)”ther first picture you see when entering the building is President Trump. Well duh, it’s standard procedure in any Federal property to post the picture of the sitting president front and center in the entryway.
      They showed children getting medical/dental care, eating HUGE trays of food (one kid had a burger twice the size of a Whopper) and all were sporting haircuts and new clean clothes. MSM talking heads were going on like these kids were being held in Mengele’s block at Auschwitz. I realize they were not being held in the same warm, comfy and opulent conditions they were used to at home and their food wasn’t in the same quantities and perhaps or culturally appropriate but we do what we can…
      First thing that came to my mind was that there are lots ofkids in my GGS’s elementary school that don’t have the perqs these illegal kids do – the school district is funding a summer feeding program for kids that normally rely on school lunch/breakfast programs. MSM isn’t pointing that out though.

This gem comes from the chemical composition of rock from the Mt. St. Helens eruption. Experts have indicated that the material ejected came from 10 – 20 miles below the earth’s surface.

      Olivine is rather common to Hawaii but not the gem quality known as Peridot. The first time I visited Hawaii in the late 60s, vendors were selling lots of jewelry with small bits like this. It was relatively inexpensive. When I got back home, I went in search of some really nice Peridot rings and they were uber expensive then. Not so now.

    Hmmm Just got home and I see Trey Gowdy throwing a fit about the IG report. Gowdy knows darn well that if a prosecutor can’t show motive, conclusively, beyond a reasonable doubt, then motive cannot be assumed. Comey worked for both republicans and democrats so it is a legal call to say that his insubordination and Clinton bias was not “politically” motivated.

    Lawyer speak. Wait for people to catch up this report (the little I’ve heard and read of it) is very damning for Comey and his FBI cohorts.

    I read that the IG report agreed with Comey that Hillary did not commit a prosecutable offense with her use of an independent server. Hmmm…. I’m gonna call BS.

      Yet early on in the report the IG talks about how Comey changed to wording numerous times to make the report on Hillary less and less damning, hiding her crimes under a blanket of softer words to describe them. In the summary the IG endorses that, fails to call the obvious out. I’m wondering if he did that because the reputation of the FBI is tattered and the public’s trust heavily frayed and he didn’t want to totally shatter it. He chose to pass Comey through the needle’s eye rather than destroy the Bureau.

        Did you see Wray? He is pained. Really the OIG report is an internal report that by the nature of its gravity was anticipated by the public.

        It was a defense of the FBI and DOJ while damning the parts of its sum. People are going to jail. You know better than most how slowly and perfectly these indictments must be handled, the people who are actually working for justice are infiltrated by the rats.

        He chose to pass Comey through the needleโ€™s eye rather than destroy the Bureau.

        I would say it is more like he inserted an infected needle so deeply into the Team Comey/Obama/Clinton/Lynch eye and is now waiting for the disease to be revealed.

          This is the latest blow to the Bureau, over the last few decades they’ve been caught manufacturing evidence, performing illegal searches and using phony ‘experts’ to convict people. This is nothing news, it’s evidence of a corrrosive internal culture that goes back to Hoover.

      Of course, I have gotten spoiled in my old age. I buy the packages of rotisserie chicken at Costco so that I don’t have to cook or strip the chicken. It makes quite a few meals when I want to be lazy. But it’s not as good as the thighs.

        I only like breast meat of the chicken. However, I have finally accepted that you either have to have a whole chicken, or at least the thighs to make good chicken and dumplings.

          I respect your love for breast meat, as long as you don’t call me a peasant for liking thighs!

                  My grandmother used to make strawberry shortcake using bisquick and I don’t know what she did, but I have never had a better one.

                  Yeah, they are big and fluffy and moist and I leave all the fat from the chicken in the pot> Delicious.

                    For shortcake, add sugar to the biscuit mixture. To get big and fluffy, make the biscuits in a pan with sides so that the biscuits are touching. They grow up rather than out that way. (tip from Menagerie). Don’t overwork the dough, because it will make your biscuits tough.

                    I had to check; haven’t made in a while. My BC recipe says:

                    1/3 Cup shortening
                    2 Cups AP flour
                    2 TB sugar
                    3 tsp baking powder
                    1 tsp salt
                    3/4 Cup milk

                    Mix like the dumplings. Roll out and cut; bake on ungreased baking sheet.

                    Bake 450 for 10-12 minutes.

                    NOTE: I just revised my comment to add shortening to the recipe.

            Northern or southern? I make the northern kind (big and fluffy), and I use the Betty Crocker recipe. Pretty much like biscuit dough, but looser, dab mix on top of the hot bubbly mixture and cook 10 minutes uncovered, then 10 minutes covered (don’t peek!)

            I think of my mom when I say that, because she always wanted to peek. The pan I use now has a glass lid, which solves the problem!

            3 TB shortening
            1-1/2 Cup all purpose flour
            2 tsp baking powder
            3/4 tsp salt
            3/4 Cup milk

            Cut shortening into flour, baking powder and salt until mix resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk (I use a fork). Dop dough by spoonfuls onto hot mixture (boiling). My recipe says to try to put the dumplings on top of meat and not directly into the boiling liquid, but if it isn’t too deep, it shouldn’t be a problem. Cook 10 minutes uncovered, then 10 minutes covered.

      LOL, that’s funny. People actually label others because of what they like to eat? Too funny.

    LOL I have been watching FOX and FRIENDS like I do every morning. The President came out of the WH and did a 30 min interview with Steve Doucey. He commented on the SS and that they were not happy.
