Morning Greatness: Democrats, Media Ramp Up Hysteria Over Non-Violent, Process ‘Criminal’ Roger Stone

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president participates in a meeting with the Governor of New York State

Democrats continue meltdown over Roger Stone

The Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself, are continuing their hysterics because the DoJ “interfered” with derp state, Mueller operatives dishing out a ridiculous sentence recommendation for Roger Stone. The DoJ attorney’s recommended a staggering 7 to 9 year sentence for the 67-year-old Stone, who was convicted of non-violent, process crimes.

The real issue here is that “justice” is not being applied in a neutral manner. Clapper, Comey, Brennan, the lawyers who signed the FISA and then lied to the FISA court, the FISA court, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Hillary Clinton and her gang etc., when will they be held accountable? People see what’s going on here and they don’t like it. Only one side of the political equation seem to end up in jail, bankrupt and ruined. It’s not fair.

Even so, the fact that Stone would be sentenced more severely than violent criminals or pedophiles is simply not mentioned or debated. Is 7 to 9 years fair? No one talks about that, they just used the occasion as a springboard for their Trump deranged outrage. By the way, where are the criminal justice reform crowds?

A.G. Barr has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee at the end of March. The Democrats are trying to claim that Trump told Barr to lighten up Stone’s sentence. There’s no evidence of that in fact there is evidence to the contrary. The DoJ told Fox News that the derp state attorneys mislead the DoJ on their sentencing recommendation. “The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” an official told Fox News. “The sentencing recommendation was not what had been briefed to the Department.” Well that certainly seems serious. Perhaps these liars might be brought to justice?

As I said yesterday, this really isn’t about Stone, this is about forcing the DoJ to step in so the institutional state and their media terror proxies can step in and shriek about how the Trump has politicized the Justice Department.

It turns out the lead juror in the Stone case is a left-wing activist. How on earth did this lady get on the jury?!? Amazing. Click the link and read Deb Heine’s round up of this partisan zealot’s history.

The Nevada caucus is going to be a hot vomit-filled dumpster fire

We still don’t know who won the Iowa caucus, it seems. Now Nevada is next on the primary agenda and it doesn’t look pretty.

“All the state has said to us is, ‘Don’t worry, we’re getting it figured out,’” Seth Morrison, a site leader who will oversee six precincts at Legacy High School in North Las Vegas, told Fox News. “This seems like a recipe for disaster.”

I know a little about this because I am from Nevada and my mother is a registered Democrat (don’t @ me, bro, she’s my mother) and she doesn’t know WTF is going on so she keeps asking me, just like she asks me about her Roku, Fire stick, iPad, iPhone and Apple watch. She tells me the Democrats aren’t answering the phone, when I told her to call the party because the Democrats have their own rules so they can steal the victory should the “wrong” candidate win. The Nevada Democrats have an early voting system along with the February 22 caucus. My mother doesn’t want to go to the caucus because she will be forced to stay there for hours and hours and she already has a luncheon planned with her lady friends. My mother has volunteered for the Democrats and Hillary before, she’s not just a rando who wants to go vote. (Again, don’t @ me bro, she’s my mother.)

She plans to go vote early. “Lizzy, which one has the best chance of beating Trump?” Me: “None of the above. You should write in Hillary.” Her preferences are Amy! and Mayor Pete because she’s a “moderate” but will vote for any freak put out by the party because she wants to beat Trump. Sigh.

When she votes early, she will pick 5 candidates in order of her preference according to the rules but she is worried her vote won’t count because she has to fill out some kind of scantron sheet and that will be entered into a computer program (app?) to be used later at the caucus. After the Iowa fiasco, she’s skeptical and tells me all her Democrat friends are worried too. (This is the part where I try not to make it sound like I am laughing.) “It probably won’t be counted, but don’t let that dissuade you. If you go and vote you will have standing to complain or sue.”

The Nevada Democrats have 9 days to get their act together. We will see what happens.
