It is really hot here in the Sacramento area.  Yesterday we spent a lot of time in the pool.  Then, late in the evening, we spend some time on the patio.  It was nearly 10 o’clock at night, the sun was long gone, and it was still hot.  We turned on the news and found out it was still 99 degrees out.  Several people make jokes about how global warming may be true after all.

The reality is that scientists actually know a lot about why we get this kind of weather.  It turns out to have nothing to do with Global Warming at all, The real culprit turns out to be:  WAVENUMBER-5.  What?  You live in California.  You endured all those droughts, wet winters and heat waves and you never even heard of wavenumber-5?  Well, weather (I know, I know) you believe in wavenumber-5 or not, it explains a lot.

Wavenumber-5 consists of five pairs of alternating high- and low-pressure features that encircle the globe about six miles (10 kilometers) above the ground. It is a type of atmospheric phenomenon known as a Rossby wave, a very large-scale planetary wave that can have strong impacts on local weather systems by moving heat and moisture between the tropics and higher latitudes as well as between oceanic and inland areas and by influencing where storms occur.

It turns out that wavenumber-5 is not exactly a new development, it is just newly discovered.

To determine the degree to which the wave pattern influenced the California drought, Teng and Branstator used three specialized computer models, as well as California rainfall records and 20th century data about global atmospheric circulation patterns. The different windows into the atmosphere and precipitation patterns revealed that the formation of a ridge by the California coast is associated with the emergence of the distinctive wavenumber-5 pattern, which guides rain-producing low-pressure systems so that they travel well north of California.

This must be fake science; because there is no hint that wavenumber-5 is caused by CO2 or even hydrocarbons.  What if we wasted all this money studying Global Warming when we should have been focusing on wavenumber-5?  Oops…there’s the problem.  Even Governor Brown came up empty trying to find a way to tax wavenumber-5.



We are in the midst of a civil war.  The liberal left is, once again, trying to conduct a silent coup against a Republican President they despise.  In 1972 they did this to Richard Nixon, successfully.  An unholy alliance between the left wing of the Democratic Party and the main stream media turned the nothing burger of the Watergate Burglary into obstruction of justice.  The Washington Post launched an all-out assault on the President of the United States investigating anything and everything until finally they lured Richard Nixon into ordering a cover-up to shut them up.  They then turned this into the crime of the century.

The liberal left is trying the same tactic to remove Donald Trump.  But this is 2017, not 1972 and the main stream media no longer controls the way Americans get information.  The President of the United States is Donald Trump and not Richard Nixon.  Nixon was a lawyer and he tried to fight in the legal arena.  Trump will not make that mistake.  He knows that there is not and never will be a legal case for charging him with obstruction of justice, but that will not stop liberals from putting him on trial.  Well-meaning but dangerously wrong advisors are telling Trump to shut down his twitter and let his attorney’s handle this legal battle.  Trump knows better.  He knows this isn’t a legal battle at all.  This is a political battle for the hearts and minds of the American people.  He will fight this on the battlefield of his choice, not theirs!

Abraham Lincoln used 272 words to deliver the Gettysburg Address.  That speech changed the way the country viewed the civil war.  Trump is changing the world and he doesn’t even need 272 words, he only uses 140 characters.

If you read his twitters they are brilliant.  They are brilliant because Trump is able to tell us what he really thinks in the blink of an eye.  While the liberal left routinely accuses him of lying, the opposite is true.  Trump’s tweets are so powerful because of their brutal honesty.  His twitters today are a splendid example:

“After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my “collusion” with the Russians,” nobody has been able to show any proof.  Sad!

The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media – over 100 million people!  I can go around them.

Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America the economic & job numbers are great.  Regulations are way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!

I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director.  Witch Hunt.

The news media believes they are on the verge of success in their plot to remove Trump from office.  They are wrong.  We are engaged in a great civil war, but it will be fought on twitter not in the main stream media.  A 70 year old man is schooling the young progressives on how to really use social media.  It’s a beautiful thing.  Sooner than you can imagine the liberal left will find itself standing alone in the middle of the field surrounded by no spectators wondering, again, how they lost to this clown.  At some point they may figure out that Trump beat them because he never even played the game.


After every shooting liberal democrats make a mad rush to the nearest microphone to scream out demands for more gun control.  Gun control is not a solution to this type of violence.  Gun control only takes guns away from people who are not a problem.  The only reason this didn’t turn into a real massacre is that GOP Rep Scalise had armed security and they took action.

In order to fix the problem we need to fix the blame.  It should be no surprise that someone would respond to the hate speech on CNN, MSNBC, CBS and ABC every night by acting violently.  We have already seen this on the streets of Berkley and Portland, Oregon.  We have seen it all over the country.  This is why Kathy Griffin thought it would be cool to pose with the severed head of Donald Trump.  This is why Fareed Zakaria praised the mockery of a Shakespearean play clearly showcasing a mock assassination of Donald Trump.

Unlike liberals, our solution must not be to become intolerant and suppress free speech.  The only real solution is to confront those who are inciting violence with the fruits of their deception.  My suggestion is that we launch a Gum Control campaign.  We can start by setting up a go-fund-me account to buy mirrors for the folks at CNN.



I have read the transcripts of numerous depositions during my years managing litigation for a major corporation.  There is often testimony that seems very credible and it is hard to know who is telling the truth and who is lying.  I have seen some very convincing liars. But even the most skilled liar is often tripped up by things that seem trivial.  The problem is that they often make serious errors in answering routine questions.  People who are telling the truth do not have this problem, because they don’t have to remember a narrative, they just tell the truth.  People who are lying try to fit their response into a rehearsed narrative and they often make mistakes when answering a question they are not expecting.

This is exactly what happened to James Comey, on at least three occasions.  The first was when Senator Kamala Harris asked him what she clearly considered to be a softball question:

“So was there any kind of memorandum issued from the attorney general or the Department of Justice to the FBI outline the parameters of his recusal?”

Comey said: “Not that I’m aware of”

This should have been an easy question for Comey, but instead he claimed he did not remember seeing any kind of memorandum issued from the Attorney General or the Department of Justice. Comey’s answer doesn’t make sense and the DOJ quickly released an official press release to set the record straight.

It is impossible to read Comey’s testimony on this subject without realizing he was lying.

Another instance came when Senator Susan Collins asked him an important question.

Question: “did you show copies of your e-mails to anyone outside of the Department of Justice.”

Comey answered “yes”

That was bad enough, but then Comey tried to justify this by saying he did this in response to a tweet by President Trump.  The problem is that the New York Times published articles based on leaked information before the Trump tweet. In his haste to stick to a narrative that puts Comey in the best possible light, it sure looks like Comey got his facts wrong.

Comey also tried to justify his decision to document every conversation with Trump.  He testified that he did not do that with either President Obama or President Bush. That is demonstrably false.  This is well documented by Law Newz:

Comey has been crowing about his meeting with George W. Bush for years.  But in his haste to slam Trump he apparently forgot his prior testimony and said something that is simply not true.

On the other hand, Donald Trump is saying he is willing to testify under oath.  I doubt that Trump would have said this without clearance from his attorney and he would not have been given such clearance unless they know “exactly” what was said.

Although the main stream media constantly accuses Trump of sending tweets that are lies, I cannot find a single instance where Donald Trump was forced to retract anything he said in a tweet.

Most famously he tweeted that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower.  The main stream media went nuts, because in their opinion this proved Trump was a liar.  But Trump has never backed down from this claim.  When researching this it became obvious that the strongest evidence that Trump was lying came from public testimony by James Comey.  This is the same James Comey who was just caught lying under oath.

Perhaps someone in the main stream media will eventually figure out the obvious.  James Comey has been caught in several obvious and well documented lies.  Since he lies so convincingly how can they be sure he is telling the truth about anything.  Are they sure they want to continue riding across the political desert on this highly suspect horse?





“A comet is an icy small Solar System body, that when passing close to the Sun, warms and begins to release gasses, a process called outgassing.”

There is an old saying: “it is better to stay silent and have people think you are stupid than to open your mouth and prove it.” Comey made a huge mistake by testifying publicly under oath today and he is likely to pay a very high price for this mistake.

Democrats will interpret this meeting as proof Trump obstructed justice. The opposite is true.  If anything, this exonerated Trump. Republicans, sadly, will wait to see which way the wind is blowing before they make up their minds.  In reality this was nothing more and nothing less than a public “outgassing” by a pissed off former employee.

The main stream media missed the entire point.  They thought that Trump was going to respond by becoming defensive because Comey said Trump lied.  However, the only lie, according to Comey, was when Trump criticized Comey’s reputation at the FBI. Comey offered zero proof that anything Trump said was a lie, other than the obvious fact that Comey was insulted.

Trump sent out his attorney, Marc Kasowitz and it was the opposite of defensive.

He pointed out, correctly that Comey admitted that not only did Trump not impede the investigation, he said “it would be good to find out in that investigation if there were some satellite associates of his who did something wrong.” This is an admission under oath that Trump not only did not impede the investigation, he encouraged it.

Comey also admitted that he did tell Trump that he was not under investigation on at least three occasions and Comey knows of no current investigation of Trump.

But it gets worse. Comey testified to actions taken personally by him that may be a criminal act:

Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he unilaterally and surreptitiously made unauthorized disclosures to the press of privileged communications with the President.  The leaks of this privileged information began no later than March 2017 when friends of Mr. Comey have stated he disclosed to them the conversations he had with the President during their January 27, 2017 dinner and February 14, 2017 White House meeting.  

Comey has now turned over his notes to the Special Prosecutor.  That is an admission under oath that he considered these to be privileged conversations that should be handled appropriately.  He can’t both give his notes to the press and then claim they can only be entrusted to a Special Counsel.

It gets even worse,  Kasowitz provided evidence that Comey lied under oath:

Today, Mr. Comey admitted that he leaked to friends his purported memos of these privileged conversations, one of which he testified was classified.  He also testified that immediately after he was terminated he authorized his friends to leak the contents of these memos to the press in order to “prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”  

Although Mr. Comey testified he only leaked the memos in response to a tweet, the public record reveals that the New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which belies Mr. Comey’s excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to entirely retaliatory.  We will leave it the appropriate authorities to determine whether this leaks should be investigated along with all those others being investigated. 

Finally he drove a nail into the Comey coffin:

In sum, it is now established that there the President was not being investigated for colluding with the or attempting to obstruct that investigation.  As the Committee pointed out today, these important facts for the country to know are virtually the only facts that have not leaked during the long course of these events.

Kasowitz made a crucial point.  The only thing that wasn’t leaking out of the Russia investigation was the FACT that no one was investigating Donald Trump and he wasn’t obstructing any investigation.  CNN may not understand that, but my guess is that the American people will.

I don’t think we will see much of James Comey for some time, because he is about to lawyer up and the first thing any smart legal counsel will do is tell him to shut up.



The Senate Judiciary Committee sent a bi-partisan letter to Comey asking him to answer seven questions and to provide his notes regarding his conversations with Trump and others.  Comey refused because he “is a private citizen.  That makes no sense.  In my opinion, it is very close to Comey refusing to answer the questions based on the 5th amendment.  It totally destroys his credibility.

Comey also refused to testify in closed session.  One has to ask why?  We already know Comey loves the spotlight.  But perhaps another reason is that testifying publicly allows Comey to decline to answer questions he doesn’t like because of “classified information.”

Comey has already testified, under oath, that Trump did not interfere with the Russian investigation.  If he thought Trump was obstructing justice and he didn’t inform congress, he committed a crime.  The best he can say now is that upon further reflection, he now believes Trump was trying to influence him.  If he says that at least one Senator is going to ask him about those memos.

Comey also has another problem.  He was fired on May 9th.  Less than one month later, the FBI has already arrested someone for leaking classified information.  This begs the question: why didn’t this happen while Comey was director of the FBI.  The leaking of the Michael Flynn conversation was a crime.  Comey never seemed interested.  He was so obsessed with seeking the Russian collusion rainbow that he ignored the clear and present danger to national security going on under his nose. The Washington Post and the New York Times reported that the real reason Trump fired Comey was because he would not investigate leaks of classified information.  Based on the arrest yesterday, it looks like Trump got it right.

I predict the hearing will be a major bust.  Comey will say very little and he will be caught in numerous contradictions.  He will spend more time avoiding questions than giving answers.  The main stream media, in their lust for a bombshell are likely to grossly exaggerate the slightest hint that Trump might be investigated for something.  For example Comey is very likely to refuse to answer a question because it involves an ongoing criminal investigation.  The main stream media will assume that means Trump, because they want to believe that.  That will, of course, be nonsense, but this is what we have learned to expect whenever Comey opens his mouth.

In the meantime more and more people, in both political parties, want both James Comey and Hillary Clinton to do the same thing.  Sit down, shut up and go away.



Both Kathy Griffin and Hillary Clinton self-destructed on national TV this week.  It is unlikely that either can even hope to recover.

It was hard to imagine anything more stupid than Kathy Griffin posing with Donald Trump’s severed head covered with blood.  Yet she accomplished the impossible with her press conference today.  She literally tried to blame this on the Trump family for “overreacting.”  No one is buying that.  Even Al Franken threw her overboard.  This press conference was so bad I suspect the Secret Service will be meeting with her to discuss a few things.   I don’t think Kathy Griffin is a serious threat to Donald Trump or anyone else, but she is certainly a threat to Kathy Griffin.

Then there was the meltdown by Hillary Clinton.  They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder.  That has never been more true than in regard to Hillary Clinton.  If she had just stayed home and shut up, the liberal left would still be fawning over her.  But when she tried to explain how Russia stole the election she just exposed this as delusional nonsense.  John King literally laughed about Russia covering up Wisconsin so Hillary couldn’t campaign there.

Hillary has done something Trump could not do.  She has blown up the Russia collusion conspiracy theory.

Kathy Griffin is beyond gone.  Hillary Clinton showed the entire world her true self and it is beyond obvious that the primary reason Hillary Clinton lost that election is that she is Hillary Clinton.  She is a lonely and bitter woman destined to spend the rest of her bleak future crying in her beer wondering why fewer and fewer people give a damn.  Trump doesn’t need to put her in jail, she is already imprisoned by her own delusions.



The Trump colluded with Russia myth is now in full meltdown.  Those people in the media that refused to abandon this story long ago are about to be embarrassed and humiliated.

Carter Page has now demanded that he be allowed to testify in a public setting.  It is going to be hard for the Intelligence Committees to say no when they agreed to this with regard to James Comey.

Now that Comey is gone, the attorneys for Carter Page have been in contact with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other DOJ officials regarding the multiple outstanding requests for immediate release of “illegitimate” FISA warrants that were allegedly filed by the Obama administration in 2016.  They wouldn’t do that unless they already know what is on those FISA warrant applications.

It is clear that there never was just cause to investigate the Trump campaign. To put this in perspective, listen to the testimony by Brennan.  What is missing is a legitimate reason to request a FISA warrant on someone connected with a Presidential campaign during an election:

“I encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals.  It raised questions in my mind about whether Russia was able to gain the cooperation of those individuals.”

 Why didn’t any of the geniuses on the House Intelligence Committee ask Brennan a really obvious question?  “Where you aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Clinton campaign?”

 It gets worse.  John Sununu was interviewed by Alisyn Camerota and he literally laughed her out of the room.  This is really fun to watch:

But it is much more than that.  After desperately trying to come up with “something” to support the Russia collusion scandal Camerota was pinned down by Sununu:

Sununu: “I don’t see any evidence of collusion, Do you?

 Camerota: “Nope”

 In the meantime, Harris Faulkner just may have put the final nail in the coffin:

“If it’s true, (Kushner was trying to set up a back channel) wouldn’t that signify that there was not collusion?  Why would you need a back channel with the Kremlin, if in fact, you already had several established”

The Seth Rich case has not gone away.  Kim Dotcom sent a letter to Robert Mueller volunteering to testify with regard to Seth Rich.   Hmmmmm.  The attorney representing the Seth Rich family has sued the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department to release its file regard this murder.  The only thing certain, at this point, is that there are more questions than answers.

Sean Hannity was back on the air last night and he hammered the main stream media.  USAA forgot that when you sell insurance to military and veterans they are unlikely to choose Rachel Maddox over Sean Hannity.  USAA stopped running ads on Hannity and kept running them on Maddox.  The backlash was enormous and USAA quickly caved.  Hannity didn’t exactly let them off the hook.  It is rare for a news commentator to criticize a sponsor, but Hannity did exactly that last night.  He was sending a message.

Meanwhile, Scott Pelley, the CBS anchor on a mission to destroy Trump, was fired.  He wasn’t even allowed to “go on vacation.”  They cleaned out his desk while he was away on assignment for “60 Minutes.”  This is more than a firing, this is being publicly humiliated.

The news coverage has turned the page and soon the focus will be less on whether or not there was collusion and more on why so many people fell for such a stupid and implausible story in the first place.



There are four stages to recovering from a traumatic event: denial, anger, depression and acceptance. Liberals confronted with the trauma of President Donald Trump are caught in a Ground Hog day cycle of denial.  They cannot bring themselves to acknowledge the fact that Donald Trump is President of the United States, so they engage in fantasy after fantasy in a desperate search for a different tomorrow.  They have literally become insane and as a result they are making irrational choices with long term deadly consequences.

This reminded me of the Panama Canal and the problem with Yellow Fever.  Carlos Juan Finlay, a doctor from Cuba, figured out that Yellow Fever was spread by mosquitos.  The medical establishment did not take him seriously.  The French literally lost thousands of people because they could not bring themselves to believe Finlay.  Major Walter Reed, yes that Walter Reed, showed up in Panama with an assignment to investigate the cause of Yellow Fever.  Finlay met with Reed and tried to convince him to kill the mosquitos.  Reed was skeptical, but at least he decided to test Finlay’s theory.  He needed volunteers so he started with Spanish immigrants figuring they would be unlikely to be immune, they were desperate for money and if they died it wouldn’t matter all that much.  Incredibly American Soldiers were pissed that they were denied the chance at glory, so they volunteered too.  One group of volunteers was locked up for 20 days in a poorly ventilated building full of clothes and sheets saturated with the blood of people who died from yellow fever.  These incredibly stupid folks actually survived, since this Garden of Eden didn’t include any mosquitos.  In another building he put in one volunteer in a room with 15 mosquitos that had bit yellow fever patients and another room with no mosquitos.  The guy that got bit by the mosquitos predictably died hard.

It still wasn’t enough.  They tried fixing the problem by injecting people with blood from yellow fever patients who had miraculously survived.  Those people stupid enough to volunteer for this program quickly died.  Eventually they followed Finlay’s original advice and killed the mosquitos.  Yellow fever went away.

It seems obvious that the liberal left’s approach to defeating Donald Trump was copied from the French and American playbook on how to defeat yellow fever.  I predict similar results.  Donald Trump is and will be President for the next four years or more, if Democrats are lucky.  If something happens to Donald Trump or a member of his family as the result of some crazed lunatic inspired by liberal lies, the backlash will literally destroy the last remaining shreds of the late great Democratic Party.  If they find some other excuse to get rid of Trump, welcome President Mike Pence who makes Donald Trump look like a flaming liberal in comparison.

In the meantime someone is consistently leaking highly classified information to the main stream media and they are rushing to report it.  This was great fun when it could be used to embarrass Donald Trump.  Now this have blown up in their face.  CNN is routinely reporting highly classified information regarding the Manchester terrorist attack.  Great Britain is royally pissed because this is hampering their ability to stop the next terrorist attack.  This is the same CNN that brutally criticized Trump for allegedly telling Russia secrets about how terrorist attack airliners.  By carelessly releasing this classified information the entire main stream media is openly aiding and abetting terrorists.  Whether this is done deliberately or solely because of stupidity the result is the same.  The response of Great Britain not only gives Trump cover for going after the leakers, it frankly demands that he go after them.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions is already on it and there is no way the main stream media can spin this as some vague attempt by Trump to silence critics.  Game on!

There are rumors that the White House has already identified some of the leakers and is preparing to take action.  Watch for entertaining videos of people led off in hand-cuffs.  This story is about to go nuclear and a whole lot of self-righteous liberals will be desperately seeking to distance themselves from this nightmare.  This is what happens when people are too stupid to realize that when you resist a duly elected President of the United States you endanger all of us.  Like I said, results a lot like the French attempt to defeat yellow fever.



The truth is always elusive, but perhaps we now know the real reason Democrats have been pushing so hard on a ridiculous Trump helped Russia Steal the Election” myth. Remember when the intelligence community allegedly said that Russia hacked the DNC servers. That would be the same intelligence agencies we now know were definitely running surveillance on people in the Trump campaign. Everyone ignored the huge red flags telling us to be very suspect of this conclusion for a lot of reasons.

Someone hacked the DNC, but it almost certainly was not Russia intelligence. This should be obvious, even to liberals. If, and that is a big if, Russia had hacked the DNC server, they would have left no trail and they would have been more likely to use the information to blackmail Hillary then to merely embarrass her. During World War II Great Britain had broken the German Enigma code. They learned that there was going to be a raid of Coventry. The decision was made to order no evacuation or give any advance warning. If the Germans were confronted with evidence that Great Britain had broken the Enigma code, they would have certainly changed it. That could have literally altered the course of history. When the intelligence agency of a country like Russia hacks your computer, they are extremely unlikely to leave a trace. That is the whole point.

For example, Russia almost certainly hacked Hillary’s e-mails but, as James Comey testified, we would never know for sure because they would have erased their tracks. Then we are led to believe the same people hacked the DNC e-mails, which they considered to be irrelevant, left bread crumbs proving they were responsible and leaked the information to WikiLeaks. If Comey really believed that he was too stupid to be Director of the FBI.

Now, after several months of work, a private investigator claims to have proof that Seth Rich was in contact with WikiLeaks. In other words he did the investigation that James Comey should have been doing rather than looking for the Russian hacking unicorn. To make things worse, we may have a real hacker going public, saying he (or she) can prove that Seth Rich was leaking DNC e-mails to WikiLeaks and is willing to testify before congress.

Breaking: ‘Complete Panic’ at Highest Levels of DNC Over Kim DotCom’s Seth Rich Announcement

Note:  This story is not fully sourced and may not be accurate.  However, there are numerous stories like this all over the web and the private investigator is definitely very real.

This anonymous source may be a dud, but the Seth Richard’s bomb is still about to go off. Congress and the main stream media may still ignore the story, but the DOJ is run by Jeff Session, not Loretta Lynch and odds are someone capable is going to get this assignment.

When you think about it, the docs leaked by the person who hacked into the DNC did not reveal any national secrets; they just showed that the DNC is full of lunatic self-righteous jerks openly colluding with the press. Most of the people who voted for Donald Trump already knew this about Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Why would we be surprised to learn that a DNC staff member, treated like crap by these people would be motivated to leak this to WikiLeaks? Maybe he wasn’t trying to elect Trump; he was just trying to warn people about the DNC scum pond.
