STOP THE DRUMBEAT TO WAR WITH IRAN.....

https://www.fcnl.org/updates/stop-the-march-to-war-with-iran-2040

Pompeo, the Secretary of State is suggesting that Trump already has permission from Congress to go to war.


Fortunately, a bipartisan group of senators and representatives are taking steps to prevent an unauthorized war. Sens. Tom Udall (NM), Rand Paul (KY) and Richard Durbin (IL), and Reps. Anna Eshoo (CA-18) and Mike Thompson (CA-5), recently introduced the “Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act of 2019” (S. 1039/H.R. 2354). These bills would ban funding for a U.S. military attack against Iran without specific, prior authorization from Congress. The legislation would thus assert the constitutional authority of Congress to determine if and when the U.S. goes to war.

Forbes republishes 1990 investigation of Trump's wealth

This article is lengthy...as well, another article why Forbes took the pos off Forbes 400 most wealthy during his decade of tax losses...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/forbes-republishes-1990-investigation-of-trumps-wealth/ar-AAB67iQ?ocid=spartanntp

The Forbes piece from 1990 estimated Trump "bleeding at the rate of at least $40 million a year."

Leaning on nonpublic documents, Forbes writers Richard L. Stern and John Connolly identified the same sort of profitability problems that are still making headlines 29 years later.

Chairman Nadler is sooo ready..from his home page...the timeline at the link - enough...

“Tonight, in the middle of good faith negotiations with the Attorney General, the Department abruptly announced that it would instead ask President Trump to invoke executive privilege on all of the materials subject to our subpoena. This is, of course, not how executive privilege works. The White House waived these privileges long ago, and the Department seemed open to sharing these materials with us earlier today. The Department’s legal arguments are without credibility, merit, or legal or factual basis.

Top 4 Things To Look For in Mueller Report in Light of Barr's Letter - Just Security

The more we question - my excerpts don't do the article justice..

https://www.justsecurity.org/63377/top-4-things-to-look-for-in-muellers-report-in-light-of-barrs-letter/


Barr’s determination that “the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense” has rightly generated considerable debate already..

1. Counterintelligence findings on coordination with Russia.

Will Mueller’s report shed light on the intentions of the American participants in the infamous summer 2016 Trump Tower meeting, the intentions and actions of members of the presidential transition team who met with Russian officials including allegedly to create a “backchannel” with the Kremlin, and apparently coordinated efforts on the part of the Trump circle to conceal all their Russian contacts?

2. Counterintelligence findings on whether Trump is compromised.

Barr’s letter also sheds no light on what Mueller found, if anything, regarding Trump’s ongoing relationship with the Kremlin. In particular, may Trump’s financial interests in Russia present a national security threat?

3. The “several matters” Mueller referred to “other officers for further action./b]

Potentially unfinished business (Jerome Corsi and individuals who may have made false statements before Congress) or hitherto undisclosed active criminal investigative matters?

4. Alleged conspiracy and coordination with Russia.

But that’s not to say Mueller failed to find evidence of those crimes. As former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance explained, it may mean anything from Mueller finding zero evidence to his finding a mountain of evidence just shy of beyond a reasonable doubt.

Barr's letter IS NOT the Mueller Report..but then, you know that!!!!

I just don't understand - I consider the Rams a good team...they also just happen to be lucky to

be playing in the 2019 Super bowl against the GOAT!.....Goff will be a better QB because of it..and the Rams for that matter.....

Coaches on both sides need NOT make stupid calls...and the refs need to do their job - NOT throw a game....

AFA Kraft and the POS in the WH...as a life long PATS fan - I really don't give a chit....I will NOT let my sports be tainted by politics...

They don't call us Titletown for nuthin''' wicked great teams over many, many, years.....We invite ALL to Boston Garden (screw TD Garden name) - Celts and Bruins games are always fun - or Fenway Park - oh, World Series Champs 2018 - Gillette Stadium, formerly Foxboro Stadium, formally Sullivan Stadium - nuff said...

I love when people post about autos...this particular OP takes me back to '66..I bought a '62

hard top, soft top, red corvette...what was funny, my Dad had to put a block of wood on the clutch pedal, so I could reach it...imagine, $1300.00 - I got married, so had to sell after kiddos came along..I sold it to my brother for $3000 - he used it for years, as collateral when he bought his car carriers....he still has it, but the place where he stored it in the winter, was broken into and the hard top stolen....

One of the most memorable trips was North on RT 1 to Ipswich Mass....going through Topsfield Mass. was like being on a roller coaster, ups and downs....best seafood at MacIntyres, and Cranes Beach of course..but that wood block allowed me to sit upright in the seat...

Thanks for the trip down memory Lane...

The GOAT, Tom Brady makes everyone better....others chase success on the field

of football - the Patriots are a TEAM of men who aspire to greatness.....who doesn't want to be a Patriot? Name One who declined ..

There are books written about those who hate others for their success...I don't much like the word "hate" - may I inject "friendly rivalry" in its place....

I think Mahones is an up and coming skillful Quarterback for KC...I believe Garopalo is as well - barring any further injury, and a successful recovery...Goff too - and Prescott....

In title town we appreciate the level of play, whether it is the RED SOX World Champs, or the Bruins..no matter where they fall in the hockey power ranking, and the Celtics, when you visit TD Garden..look up into the rafters and check out the many flags of recognition over the years...many years....


May the BEST TEAM win tomorrow.....GO PATS>>>>>
