The Q-tards seem think something big is going to happen today based on some vague hint someone saw somewhere on the internet.
well it IS going to be VERY HOT today.

And spontaneous human combustion IS settled science (according to climate change activists).

So put 1 and 1 together, and POOF...PENCE would have been incinerated...spontaneously, if he had landed in NH

Fact check: Trump’s false claims about Rep. Ilhan Omar
Trump said that Omar has talked about “how great” and “how wonderful al Qaeda is.” He claimed that Omar had said, “‘When I think of al Qaeda, I can hold my chest out.'” There’s no evidence Omar has said any of those things.

Trump, July 15: I mean, I look at the one — I look at Omar — I don’t know, I never met her. I hear the way she talks about al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has killed many Americans. She said, “You can hold your chest out, you can … when I think of al Qaeda, I can hold my chest out.” …

And politicians can’t be afraid to take them on. A politician that hears somebody, where we’re at war with al Qaeda, and sees somebody talking about how great al Qaeda is — pick out her statement — that was Omar. How great al Qaeda is — when you hear that — and we’re losing great soldiers to al Qaeda. …
Here's the full interview, so you can make up your own mind:

It's pretty clear that President Trump's "quotation" of her words was not literally accurate, but IMNSHO if one listens to the whole section in question (15:45-18:15), and do so in the context of the rest of the interview, the tone of her words are somewhat mocking of American concerns WRT Al Qaeda. She and the interviewer then put forth the idea that referring to terrorist groups by their Arabic titles is somehow an attempt to put down the entire Muslim community.

Furthermore, she and the interviewer repeat the excuse that Muslim terrorism @ 11:40-12:45 is just a reaction to Western aggression. Later in the interview they go further and assert that the transgression of Western aggression is greater than that of Muslim terrorism because it is perpetrated by governments and nations whereas the terrorist reaction is by individuals.

In her defense, she does indicate @ 10:00-10:10 she does not share Al Shabaab's ideology, but I did not find anywhere that she was quite so clear WRT Al Qaeda.

I listened to most of the interview, and came away with the feeling that they were dismissive of Muslim terrorism and attempting to deflect the discussion into one of the victim-hood of American Muslims.

So, IMNSHO, while President Trump's exact words were inaccurate, I find the gist of his assertion to be generally accurate. While she may not explicitly support or be proud of Muslim terrorism and terrorist groups, she is certainly dismissive of them and their threats to the West, and is more negative about the US than she is such terrorist groups.

IMNSHO. YMMV. IANAL. I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Remember now Trump is the crazy one..

Video Goes Viral of Rep. Tlaib Losing It at 2016 Trump Event: 'You Guys Are Crazy!'



Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has been in the news a lot recently. She is one of the most vocal progressive new Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives and an outspoken enemy of the great state of Israel. She's also a member of the so-called "Squad": the four Democratic congresswomen — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley — who have made a name for themselves insulting President Trump, Israel, and the American people.

Although her earlier remarks about the holocaust made it clear that she is a radical leftwing activist, Tlaib always hid that aggressive activism behind a veneer of respectability. Now, footage has emerged of her being forcibly removed from a 2016 Donald Trump event in Detroit because she completely lost it. No, that is not an exaggeration. Just watch this video:

I was going to post this if it wasn't posted by someone else. This thing, Tlaib, is an animal that hates the US!

It made the news because it was a last minute cancellation. The gov was at the airport waiting on the VP and he never showed. That allowed the press jumped to conclusions. AF2 never took off.

Someone actually was looking out for the Pres and VP. Interesting short article.
---- ETA I cut and paste too slowly.

Behind Pence’s Air Force Two cancellation: A drug dealer

Vice President Mike Pence was one short plane ride away from shaking hands with an alleged interstate drug dealer.

Pence abruptly canceled his trip to Manchester, N.H., earlier this month but never said why he was pulled from Air Force Two at the last minute.

The vice president’s aides and even President Donald Trump himself kept up the suspense. “You'll know in about two weeks,” Trump told reporters at the time. “There was a very interesting problem that they had in New Hampshire.”

Among the problems was a federal law enforcement probe involving individuals Pence would likely encounter, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the incident. If Pence stepped off the vice presidential aircraft, one of the people he would have seen on the ground was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for moving more than $100,000 of fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire.

Jeff Hatch, who agreed in federal court Friday to plead guilty and will face up to four years in prison, works for an opioid addiction treatment center in southern New Hampshire that Pence was set to visit. A former New York Giants player, he has spoken publicly for years about his own challenge with drug and alcohol addiction, which ended his football career.

Have to say one of the comments raised a good point. Is it really easier to divert the VP's flight and cancel his appearance rather than just have that one guy removed?

Didn't read the article yet, but if the subject didn't know he was about to be busted he might wonder why he was shuttled away. If he DID know, then the exercise was simply about keeping distance due to inevitable media distortion.

Without going into great detail I do know getting involved with POTUS one and two has an amazing amount of detail.

I learned the outskirts first hand. The innards are stupid.

Doesn't today mark two weeks since Pence nixed his NH trip? And didn't the White House say they'd tell us in two weeks why the trip was nixed?
Pence canceled New Hampshire trip to avoid meeting a drug trafficker - The Boston Globe
Before Vice President Mike Pence cancelled his planned visit to Manchester, N.H. to speak at an addiction treatment center earlier this month, one of the people he was likely to encounter was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency for trafficking fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire, Politico reported Monday.

That person, Jeff Hatch, agreed on Friday in federal court in New Hampshire to plead guilty to a charge in connection with the case and will face up to four years in prison, the website reported.

Hatch, a former player in the National Football League who battled addiction himself, was terminated Monday from his job at Granite Recovery Centers, CEO Eric Spofford said in a statement to the Globe Monday night.

Spofford said he was “shocked, disappointed, and heartbroken” to learn about Hatch, and said no one at GRC was aware of Hatch’s actions.

“Granite Recovery Centers has over 200 of the most dedicated passionate people that go above and beyond to fight in the mission against addiction every single day,” Spofford said. “The actions of one do not discredit the amazing work they all do.”


Spofford said he learned about the situation around 11 a.m. Monday, and fired Hatch immediately. Spofford called addiction insidious and said it affects people from all walks of life.

“This situation highlights why those of us on the front lines need to remain vigilant and must battle every day against addiction and the opioid epidemic,” he said.

According to a 12-page plea agreement filed in federal court Friday, in the spring of 2017 local and state law enforcement began an investigation into a Manchester, N.H.-based fentanyl supplier who obtained large quantities of the drug from a source in Lawrence.

Investigators identified and arrested several of the couriers involved in the transactions.

“During the morning hours of July 25, 2017, the defendant utilized his cellular telephone to arrange with the MA Source to pick up approximately 1,500 grams of fentanyl for the NH Source,” according to the plea deal. “Shortly after, the defendant met the MA Source and obtained the NH Source’s fentanyl. The defendant brought the drugs back to his residence in New Hampshire.”

The “NH Source” obtained a portion of the fentanyl from Hatch’s home, and distributed nearly 200 grams of the drug to an undercover law enforcement officer in Manchester, the agreement stated. That person, who was not named, was arrested on a charge of drug trafficking.

A search of that person’s vehicle found more fentanyl and $7,500 in cash.

Hatch pleaded guilty to using a telephone to commit a crime, according to court filings.

FBI Rocked By Public Suicide of TOP FBI Agent Who Investigated Clinton Foundation

FBI agents are mourning the death of one of the Bureau’s top financial crimes supervisors who reportedly shot and killed himself on a crowded nite-club dance floor, according to top FBI insiders.

Salvatore “Sal” Cincinelli, a former Wall Street broker who joined the FBI in 2010, died last week during a night out after an FBI training session, sources said.

Cincinelli was one a supervisory special agent who spearheaded many of the FBI’s high-profile and complex Wall Street investigations, including probing the finances of the Clinton Foundation. After leaving his Wall Street career, Cincinelli was first assigned to the New York field office (SDNY) and later promoted to HQ in Washington, DC. He was a native New Yorker as well.

“Very very bright guy,” one FBI insider said. “Such a young guy, it really gets you in the gut. He put in the hours too, was always working hard.”

Cincinelli was 41.

If i followed the fractured amateurish reporting out there....the perp was under surveillance, but not yet alerted to it. So if they removed him, the feds would be tipping their hat

Left a Wall Street career for the FBI. Poor guy was an idealist who thought he'd be doing some good.
