"THIS IS BIG: Erdogan Dealt Stunning Blow as Istanbul Elects Rival Candidate: Opposition gets more votes than Erdogan ever did in Istanbul. “Losing Istanbul is much more than ceding control of Turkey’s largest city and commercial powerhouse. The mayor’s job was the springboard for Erdogan’s own political career, and if Imamoglu, 49, performs well in the position, then the president may find himself with a future challenger. . . . Defeat in Istanbul, home to about a fifth of Turkey’s 82 million people, also strips Erdogan’s party of a major source of patronage and handouts. By some estimates, the city absorbs a quarter of all public investment and accounts for a third of the country’s $748 billion economy. Istanbul erupted in celebration over the first opposition victory since Erdogan came to power 16 years ago. Major thoroughfares were packed with cars honking their horns, passengers hanging out of windows and waving Turkish flags through sunroofs.”

Listening to Devin Nunes' interview, at the very end he reveals that subpoenas go out tomorrow to Twitter, Facebook, Google etc. because he is filing a $250 million lawsuit against the social media companies.

He wants their books opened and their algorithms explained because it is pretty obvious that conservatives are being discriminated against.

They go to court in August.

There certainly are some creative and patriotic people in this country.

take away anything that could be political, like counter-intelligence. Put that under military intelligence.

Yeah, like, what could go wrong with that.

MissMarple2

Well, sbwaters, what IS wrong with it, compared to having a whole bunch of political hacks running it out of the Hoover building in DC, covering up any infraction of the democrats and framing Republicans?

Not to mention a good chunk of them feeding info to China or Iran or Russia for cash!

I am willing to entertain another suggestion. Have you got one?

Catching up, MM's link to that tweet about Schumer had this:

You had 8 years under Barry Soetoro O’Bozo to get this wall built. Instead you were busy getting your daughters best friend pregnant and paying for her to have ... Abortions. This poor girl committed suicide because you told her you loved her.

Is that a real story that I'd somehow missed?

The guy who wrote that was either a New York policeman, EMT, or fireman.

Because I am from the Midwest and have only passed through at JFK airport, I had no idea if that was true or not.

Well, sbwaters, what IS wrong with it

First of all, the military has the firepower but not yet the inclination to misuse it for personal gain.

Second, the military is forbidden to engage in domestic policing.

I’d rather begin to hold people accountable for violating the law.

sbwaters,

OK, but who is going to hold people accountable?

I have avoided being pessimistic, but that article of Sundance's sounded to me like about every damn person in the FBI is in on the cover-up. And probably at least half of the DOJ.

I feel like running through DC like Gomer Pyle yelling "Citizen's arrest, citizen's arrest!"

Trump accuser with Lisa Bloom (see link below)

And in case you forgot, I'll remind you: Lisa Bloom, daughter of Gloria Allred, was exposed during the 2016 election to be bribing women to accuse Trump. We have her emails that show the offer getting bigger the closer to the election. She even wrote "We're running out of time"

The: tearing down FBI/DoJ:

It’s like a house that has an infestation of termites. If it gets bad enough, and they do sufficient damage, eventually you have no choice but to tear eveverytging down, right to the foundation.

Yes, you have to rebuild, because you need a house. And yes, the new house will likely look a lot like the old house. But you need to tear it down and exterminate all the termites that were there.

And, yes, you’ll eventually get termites in the rebuilt house, too. But st least the new infestation will start small and be easier to fight, at least for a while.

MissMarple2

Next week we will have to keep our eyes open.

Possibilities:

1. Dems and intelligence tried to entrap Trump into starting a war. I am hopeful he cause some of them leaking info to the Iranians, since he was smart enough to have a photographer from the White House take that video of Pelosi and Schumer reacting with glee after they met with him.

2. Nunes hinting about criminal referrals for important actors in this (possibly Wray and Boente).

3. Clinton connections to the NXIVM cult came out Friday.

4. The President leaves for the G20, with meetings with Xi.

5. Border crisis 2-week dedline with the dems looking bad and Mexico improving their standing.

That's all I can think of now, but things sure do seem to be heating up!

I’ve been noticing a lot of people lately, like the much maligned PDJT, giving references like Two Thessalonians or One Corinthians. Is that Confirmation Bias or The Mandela Effect?

Anonamom,

The craft community has gone insane. I was just about to post that Ravelry news. Apparently, there was a knit designer who posted there under the name "Deplorable Knitter" and presented patterns supportive of the president. Someone on the site used the flag function designed to bring awareness to pattern errors to report the pattern content to the owners of the site, and because of how this reporting can't be done anonymously, Deplorable Knitter doxed the complainer on Instagram. So Ravelry pulled down all her patterns and have issued this ban on Trump support on the site, including discussions on forums.

Captain Hate

A former top CIA official warned of dire consequences from the Justice Department's review of the origins of the Russia investigation.

Fuck this guy in particular.

So this NXIVM case is really real? Have any of the networks, including Fox Business, said anything about it?

During the Jerry Sandusky case, there were a lot of wild ass things being reported that were never resolved; like an earlier investigator disappearing with his car abandoned and laptop innards removed, and how there was a link to highly placed people that proceeded nowhere. Frankly having an ex FBI director conducting an investigation all of a sudden leads more in the coverup territory than previously thought.

I hate to be lied to, whether gaslighting me over nothing or covering something major up. I voted for Trump in large part because I trusted him not to do that. If he disappoints me in that, and I'm not saying he has or will, I'll try to find someone better.

Trump was a major step in getting our country back but he's surely not the only one.

Narciso79

It's real, but as usual mist are covering with a cloth, just like the Panama papers faded out when it affected the wrong people like the leaders in Ecuador and venezuela.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

Melinda and I have followed it on Twitter. The only coverage has been from the upstate New York papers. It is absolutely real.

Also, what's important is that Kirsten Gillibrand's father was involved in it, I think her stepmother as well, and the cult bundled a bunch of individual donations to Hillary. I think Podesta had some contacts with them as well.

They also had about 11-12 large daycare centers scattered around the world, including Mexico and the UK as well as the US.

Melinda probably could add more.

Just like the awan bros hack, but we see how there are interests that protect the perpetrators. I didmg put much stock in q, because the premises didnt make sense.

This explains (according to the source) some of the problems with the vetting process for administration hires.

Looks to me like it got shoved off on inexperienced people in the RNC, who didn't know how to dig into backgrounds. Trump should hire someone like Corey's Digs to do it. That gal can find out anything!

Captain Hate

Idiot Jellobrain's father involved is a BFD but we might be getting close to a "what if there was a really big story that the MFM refused to cover" territory. Fortunately we have a President who loves to crash that party.

Today on CNN @AdamSchiff pulled back his support for impeachment saying he does not feel comfortable to recommend impeachment of @realDonaldTrump! Does anyone else find that odd considering for 2 yrs he said he has concrete evidence that Trump colluded, obstructed & broke laws?
============================
This is odd, assuming the poster is correct. (I don't get CNN so have no idea what he said.)

One wonders if he has pulled back because of information that Barr has on him.
