More Evidence of GOP Collusion With Russian Spies

It wasn’t just the Chumph colluding with the Russians. This collusion was offered as a package which was taken by over 40 Republican candidates.

This is why the GOP is trying so hard to quash the Chumph Treason trial.

GOP operative asked Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 for help — and got 2.5 gigabytes of stolen documents: report

The Russian hacker who helped President Donald Trump win the 2016 election also allegedly collaborated with a Republican consultant in Florida.

A Wall Street Journal report published on Thursday revealed that Republican operative Aaron Nevins made a plea last year to Guccifer 2.0, the same hacker who is accused of helping Trump by revealing stolen Democratic National Committee emails.

According to the Journal:

Learning that hacker “Guccifer 2.0” had tapped into a Democratic committee that helps House candidates, Mr. Nevins wrote to the hacker to say: “Feel free to send any Florida based information.”

Ten days later, Mr. Nevins received 2.5 gigabytes of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee documents, some of which he posted on a blog called HelloFLA.com that he ran using a pseudonym.

The report said that the hacker then sent Trump ally Roger Stone a link to the blog post.

During conversations with the Guccifer 2.0, Nevins observed that the documents were “probably worth millions of dollars.”

“Hmmm,” the hacker replied, “ok u owe me a million :)”

In an interview with the paper, Nevins defended his actions as standard political practice.

“I just threw an arrow in the dark,” Nevins explained, noting that when he analyzed the documents, he “realized it was a lot more than even Guccifer knew that he had.”

“If your interests align,” the operative concluded, “never shut any doors in politics.”

Congress Reacts to Trump Treason

The Chumph can’t keep his mo-freakin’ mouth shut around the Russians…

As if it wasn’t bad enough this stupid POS allowed his Russian butt-buddies in the Oval Office and most secure areas of the White House to plant bugs!

Trump Russia

Putin’s Bitch Report to His Russian Handlers What a Good Bitch he Has Benn for Massa Putin

President Trump revealed “highly classified” intelligence to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Segey Kislyak last week, according to a report in The Washington Post.  

The extremely sensitive information was gathered by a U.S. ally united in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and given on the basis that it remain private between the two parties. According to U.S. officials who spoke to the Post, Mr. Trump potentially jeopardized that relationship while also disclosing key ISIS-related intelligence.

In a briefing Monday evening, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster denied on behalf of the White House that Mr. Trump shared the reported classified intelligence.

The Post’s report sent shockwaves through Capitol Hill on Monday, shaking up lawmakers who last week called into question Mr. Trump’s relationship with Russia after he fired FBI Director James Comey.

“[O]bviously they’re in a downward spiral right now, they’ve got to figure out a way to come to grips with all the that’s happening,” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, said when asked by asked by the story by reporters Monday evening.

“You know the shame of it is there is a real good national security team in place and there are good productive things that are underway through them and others. The chaos that is being created by the lack of discipline is creating an environment that I think makes, it creates a worrisome environment.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, expressed concern for national security, saying in a tweet, “a week ago Trump fired Comey. Now this.”

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, called the situation “a slap in the face to the intel community” and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Rhode Island, said if true, Mr. Trump is “sabotaging our war against ISIS.”

Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-New Mexico, drew comparisons between Mr. Trump’s own alleged handling of the classified information and Mr. Trump’s criticism of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, also describing the behavior as part of “a pattern of recklessness.”  

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, also commented on the Post’s report.

“Even if President Trump unwittingly blew a highly classified code-word source to the Russians, that would be dangerous enough,” she said in a statement. “If the President outed a highly classified code-word source intentionally, that would be even more dangerous.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, who also serves as chairman of the Armed Services Committee, tweeted of the report: “If true, deeply disturbing,”

Supreme Court Rejects North Carolina Discriminatory Voting Law

0 for 4, it looks that NC Racist Republican led Legislature is out of luck… again.

Up Next is the North Carolina Racist Republican Gerrymandering of districts.

Likely up by this fall is the legality of stripping Education Funding from Democrat and minority districts.

Supreme Court won’t review decision that found N.C. voting law discriminates against African Americans

The Supreme Court will not consider reinstating North Carolina’s 2013 voting law that a lower court ruled discriminated against African American voters, the justices said Monday.

A unanimous panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit had found in 2016 that North Carolina legislators had acted “with almost surgical precision” to blunt the influence of African American voters.

Although Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. took pains to note that the court’s decision did not reach the merits of the case, Democrats, civil rights groups and minority groups celebrated the demise of the law. It was one of numerous voting-rights changes passed by Republican-led legislatures in the wake of the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision striking down a key section of the Voting Rights Act that effectively removed federal oversight of states with a history of discrimination.

“This is a huge victory for voters and a massive blow to Republicans trying to restrict access to the ballot, especially in communities of color,” said Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez.

The appeals court did not allow the law to be used in the 2016 election, and voters replaced Republican governor Pat McCrory with Democrat Roy Cooper.

Cooper and the state’s new Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein told the Supreme Court they did not want to appeal the lower court’s decision that the law violated the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act.

“We need to be making it easier to vote, not harder — and the court found this law sought to discriminate against African-American voters with ‘surgical precision,’ ” Cooper said in a statement after the Supreme Court acted. “I will continue to work to protect the right of every legal, registered North Carolinian to participate in our democratic process.

As is its custom, the justices did not give a reason for declining to review the lower court’s decision. But in an accompanying statement, Roberts noted the particular circumstances of the appeal, in which the Republican legislative leadership attempted to continue the appeal and the Democratic governor and attorney general sought to abandon it.

“Given the blizzard of filings over who is and who is not authorized to seek review in this court under North Carolina law, it is important to recall our frequent admonition that ‘the denial of a writ of certiorari imports no expression of opinion upon the merits of the case,’” Roberts wrote.

Last summer Roberts and the court’s other conservatives — Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. — said they would have allowed the law to be used in the 2016 elections while the appeals continued.

But they were unable to find a necessary fifth vote from one of the court’s four liberals.

The battle against the law, considered one of the nation’s most far-reaching, consumed years of litigation by the Obama administration and a wide coalition of civil rights organizations.

“An ugly chapter in voter suppression is finally closing,” said Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project.

“Today we experience a victory for justice that is unimaginably important for African Americans, Latinos, all North Carolinians, and the nation” said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, president of the North Carolina NAACP, the lead organizational plaintiff in the case.

North Carolina legislative leaders did not immediately respond to a request for comment about what the next step may be.

The Supreme Court will soon rule on a case about whether the state’s congressional districts were racially gerrymandered, as a lower court found. And federal judges have also said the state must redraw state legislative districts for the same reason. That decision is being appealed.

In the voting rights case, a unanimous panel of the 4th Circuit on July 29 agreed with allegations from the Justice Department and civil rights groups that North Carolina’s bill selectively chose voter-ID requirements, reduced the number of early-voting days and changed registration procedures in ways meant to harm African Americans, who overwhelmingly vote for the Democratic Party.

“The new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision” and “impose cures for problems that did not exist,” Judge Diana Gribbon Motz wrote for the panel. “Thus the asserted justifications cannot and do not conceal the state’s true motivation.”

Farmers Get the Shaft Under Chumph’s Immigration

Image result for illegal immigrants picking tomatoes

This is a common sight in the fields around where I currently live. Immigrants, mostly undocumented, picking the crops. These guys disappear…Say goodbye to your spaghetti sauce and pizzas. The pick tomatoes green, and then turn the red by gassing them with nitrogen. Otherwise the tomato is so soft it rots before getting to market. Last year, the tomato field was planted with cantaloupes –  the same crew (rounded up by an entrepreneurial ex-illegal – now citizen) was out there to pick them.

The Chumph’s Immigrant crackdown is getting ready to cost Americans greatly, and where it hurts – at the grocery store. We have become spoiled since the 50’s days to terrible TV Dinners and certain fruits and vegetables only being available during certain parts of the year. You don’t realize that until you go to a country which doesn’t have the agricultural infrastructure the US has.

A number of crops cannot be picked by machine. Tomatoes are too delicate. Add spinach, kale, cucumbers, lettuce, grapes, oranges, apples, pears, and a host of other fruit and vegetables which have to be picked by hand. Since the 60’s, and almost elusively now those crops are picked by undocumented immigrants.

That may be fine out there in the mid-west, where the principal crops of wheat and corn can be picked by machine. But unless you plan to subsist on a diet of popcorn and wheaties…

If the undocumented disappear, so do the strawberries, blueberries, and and damn near anything except bananas (they are gown in Latin America) to go with your cereal.

What happens to the independent farmer who provides those crops?

One last note…
