I’m back!

Everyone is waiting for PDT’s nomination to the SCOTUS, so I decided to do a quick recap of the day’s other stories to hold everyone over in the meantime. Hope you find it useful.

MIRACLES IN THAILAND

.

.

It really has been all that and more.

Eight boys have been brought out from the cave in northern Thailand where their soccer team and coach have been trapped for more than two weeks, on the second day of a daring series of rescues involving special operations forces and helpers from around the world

Four boys and the coach, Ekkapol Chantawong, are thought to remain in the cave.


 

About 7pm, the official Facebook page of the Thai navy Seals – who have played a key role in the rescue – posted a message: “Two days. Eight boars. Hooyah,” it read, referencing the Wild Boars soccer team the boys belong to.

The Thai prime minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha, visited the site a short time later, meeting the families of the boys.

Divers at the site had said this morning they were preparing to re-enter the cave where they spent more than eight hours on Sunday guiding four of the 12 trapped boys to freedom and safety.

Officials later confirmed the divers had entered Tham Luang Nang Non cave at about 11am local time. “At 11am we sent the second team,” said Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the joint command center co-ordinating the operation.

Declining water levels

.

The conditions that had triggered Sunday’s operation – declining water levels in the cave, the readiness of rescuers and the physical and mental health of the stranded boys – were the same this morning and the rescue had commenced five hours earlier than expected.

“The factors are as good as yesterday [and] the rescue team is the same team with a few replacements for those exhausted,” Osatanakorn said.

Asked which boys would be coming, he said: “The perfect ones, the most ready ones.”

An official from Thailand’s forestry department said water levels were still declining in the cave thanks to thousands of pumps operating inside and had not been substantially affected by the intermittent rain of the past 48 hours. “The water level is not worrisome,” he said.

The boys who were rescued on Sunday were strong and safe but needed to undergo detailed medical checks, according to the interior minister.

“This morning they complained that they were hungry and they asked for khao pad krapow [basil chicken with rice],” Mr Osatanakorn said.

The freed children are yet to meet their parents, who late last night were yet to be told which of their sons had been evacuated.

Wow, imagine being one of them.


.

Doctors quoted by Thai media have said the delay is to manage the mental health of the parents whose children are still inside the cave, as well as to ensure the boys can be tested for any diseases they might have picked up inside its dank, flooded interior.

Authorities said today a medical team was assessing whether to reunite the boys with their parents soon.

“The medical team is considering whether to let closest relative visit them,” Osatanakorn said. “It could be a visit through transparent glass rooms. We are discussing this with doctors at the hospital.”

The freed boys would not yet be officially named due to “doctor-patient confidentiality”, he added.

OMG DID YOU HEAR THAT?? DID YOU KNOW THAT, IN THE REAL WORLD, THERE ARE SITUATIONS IN WHICH CHILDREN MAY NEED TO BE TEMPORARILY SEPARATED FROM GUARDIANS?? NAZISM HAS MADE ITS WAY AROUND TO THAILAND!!


.

BOTTOM LINE:

.

Thank God that brave men and woman have been working around the clock to rescue these young men and their coaches.

Rescue operations have been delayed until Tuesday (tomorrow), with only 4 more boys and 1 adult left to get out. By all indications, they will be able to be rescued, though nothing is set in stone. It remains a dangerous situation.

Please keep them in your prayers.

BREXIT IN DOUBT, BRITAIN IN DISARRAY

.

.

British TINO (Tory in Name Only) Prime Minister Theresa May is struggling to keep her government from imploding after the resignations of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and David Davis, respectively. These aren’t your everyday resignations, of course, especially as they relate to Brexit.

Johnson, on top of being the friggin foreign minister, was one of the loudest voices in the Brexit campaign and was looked upon to help lead the way as Britain sought to rid herself of the globalist, tyrannical EU. Davis, on the other hand, was her once-loyal “Brexit minister” in charge of negotiating the country’s split from the bloc. Brexit was literally his entire job.

It’s not hard to understand why folks are having trouble finding a way forward.


.

There have been signs of this for over a year now, as ever since PM May bungled the 2017 election, losing a majority in Parliament, there has been speculation over how long she would hold the top job. Now those asking how much longer she’ll be in power have turned their voices all the way up to 11. When globalists smell blood, they go for the kill. But those aren’t the only folks May must watch out for. An even more formidable opponent may be those within her own party who feel she’s been too soft on Brexit from thre start, the hardcore “Brexiteers,” if you will. 

As May prepares to meet with PDT in his first official visit to Britain this week, Brexiteers are openly debating a no-confidence vote that could sweep her from power.

Johnson, a flamboyant politician and former mayor of London, once said, “My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars.” He is divisive, and his stock has fallen lately. But the Whitehall mandarins and British political class have long assumed he covets the keys to 10 Downing Street. His resignation may be anything but, and may actually serve as a launching pad from which to challenge May’s leadership within the party.

Gotta love British politics. Not so much different from our own. 


In his resignation letter, Johnson wrote that the Brexit dream “is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt.” He said that Britain was “headed for the status of colony — and many will struggle to see the economic or political advantage of that particular arrangement.”

“I am sorry — and a little surprised,” May wrote in reply.

Johnson’s allies say he did the honorable thing by resigning. His critics see selfish maneuvering.

May replaced Johnson otoday with Jeremy Hunt, formerly the health secretary, who successfully secured a big bump in spending for the socialist black hole of money known as the National Health Service. Hunt campaigned to remain in the EU but later said he had changed his mind. May named as Davis’s successor 44-year-old Dominic Raab, a leading pro-Brexit campaigner who served as her housing minister.

But the bombshell resignations expose May to further confrontations with restive Conservative Party members outraged over what they see as the prime minister’s plan for a “soft Brexit” that keeps Britain tied to many EU rules and regulations after it leaves the bloc in March 2019.

Sounds like the TINOs were looking for a BINO (Brexit in Name Only).

And so now, the *actual* backers of Brexit, or as the Brits call it, a “hard Brexit,” are now in revolt. They denounced May’s latest road map as a fudge, a timid capitulation, a BINO that ignores the 52% of voters who opted in June 2016 to tell the EU where to stick it.


.

TRUMP TO THE RESCUE?

.

PDT is scheduled to arrive in Britain this Thursday for a visit that will be closely watched for any comments on Brexit and U.S. relations with the EU. Asked today about how the political shifts in Britain might affect the trip, Sarah Sanders said, “The president continues to look forward to his working visit with the Prime Minister on July 13, and further strengthening the U.S.-U.K. special relationship.”

But there is some talk, most of it in whispers but some aloud, that PDT would be just what was needed to get Britain on the right track with Brexit. Last month, Johnson told an audience at a private gala dinner that he thought Trump would do a much better job at negotiating Brexit than his prime minister.

“Imagine Trump doing Brexit,” Johnson told his audience of Tory activists. “He’d go in bloody hard. . . . There’d be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos. Everyone would think he’d gone mad. But actually you might get somewhere. It’s a very, very good thought.”

While PDT could never represent Britain on the world stage, though (sorry Brits, you’re stuck with your TINOs), there is a push to get a Trump-like figure in the place of the pitiful PM they currently have in place.
The incomparable Nigel Farage said yesterday: “For Brexit to succeed we must get rid of this awful, duplicitous PM.”
But how does that work, exactly?
.

Well, something like this, If May refuses to toughen her joke of a Brexit plan, angry Tories could seek a no-confidence vote. At least 48 Conservative parliamentarians would need to write letters to trigger it. Then May would need to win over the majority of Conservative lawmakers to stay in power.

Many analysts, myself included, think she has the numbers to win such a vote. If she failed, a leadership contest would ensue — and in might step Johnson, among others.

.


.

BIG PICTURE:

.

Theresa May better get strong on Brexit and she’d better do it fast, or the downward spiral that has become her administration will continue until a hard ground provides its fate.

This isn’t the end of her reign, at least not yet, but this would be a good time for her to show some courage, tell the Muslim mayor Kahn where to stick his Donald Trump balloon and court PDT as an ally in the fight she has ahead of her.

Together, the US and UK could deal a huge blow to globalists everywhere. 

PDT is certainly game for it. Britain, on the other hand, remains to be seen.

THE LOVEBIRDS TESTIFY

.

.

It appears that everyone’s favorite anti-Trump FBI adulterers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, are just getting warmed up with their visits to Capitol Hill.  Page will be testifying before two congressional committees this Wednesday, but as you probably guessed, the testimony will take place behind closed doors. From ABC News:

The House Judiciary Committee has issued a subpoena for Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer who exchanged text messages with FBI agent Peter Strzok critical of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, to appear on Capitol Hill for a closed-door interview Wednesday morning, according to congressional officials familiar with the subpoena…

Page’s attorney Amy Jeffress said they have been “working with the Committee staff to arrange Lisa’s voluntary appearance,” suggesting her client needs more time to prepare for an interview.

“We asked the Committee staff to explain the scope of the investigation and provide sufficient notice that would allow her to prepare, which are normal conditions for congressional committees, but these committees have not followed the normal process,” Jeffress said in a statement. “The FBI has agreed to provide Lisa with her notes and other documents to allow her to prepare, but they have not provided those documents to date, so we are still waiting to work out a reasonable date for her interview.”


.

Page’s testimony is set for 10 am, so we can expect leaks on how she’s holding up sometime Wednesday afternoon. Who knows what kind of news she will make, but we do know it will likely be overshadowed by the (now) public testimony of her loverboy Peter Strzok which is scheduled for Thursday:

FBI agent Peter Strzok, whose disparaging text messages about President Donald Trump prompted his removal from the ongoing inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, is to give public testimony Thursday at a joint meeting of House committees…

Angered by lawmakers’ selective leaks of that meeting, Strzok’s lawyer has called for the full transcript of that testimony to be released before Thursday’s session. Strzok was subpoenaed earlier this week to testify publicly.

Strzok gave similar testimony last month, but, like Page on Wednesday, was behind closed doors. That testimony, by many accounts, left much to be desired. The answers he gave to questions regarding his obvious bias during the Hillzdawg and Trump probes were reportedly less than convincing, with some lawmakers calling them “absurd” and “completely not credible.”  

Strzok is the big prize for Jim Jordan and co., as it’s he who provides the common link between the Clinton probe, Trump probe and even Flynn probes. If there’s a cookie jar, chances are Strzok has had his grubby hands in it. And those hands were the #2 set of paws in the FBI’s counterintel division. Make no mistake, Mr. Strzok knows a lot about what happened in the J. Edgar Hoover building leading up to the 2016 election. He expects to be protected by the Swamp. It will be up to the congressional GOP, and possibly the Trump White House ultimately, whether his expectations are met. 


.

As for his floozy Lisa Page, she left her job at the bureau in May, so there’s not as much on the line for her. And between her and Strzok, she seems to dislike PDT more but Strzok was the one who raised the “insurance policy” idea and the one who promised he would “stop” Trump from being elected.

Still, it will be interesting to see what she can offer about comments like this under questioning: “Are you even going to give out your calendars? Seems kind of depressing. Maybe it should just be the first meeting of the secret society.”

Perhaps she was being tongue in cheek when discussing the “secret society.” I tend to believe she was, considering actual members of secret societies are stupid enough to label themselves as such in electronic communications.

Then again, these two were also stupid enough to discuss an “insurance policy” to take down the POTUS on phones issued to them by the FBI. Counterintelligence masterminds, they are not. 

.


.

BOTTOM LINE:

.

Strzok is infinitely more important than Page from an investigatory standpoint, but Page needs to be gone after 100x harder.

The reason being, and don’t take this the wrong way ladies, but females in white collar jobs such as hers tend not to hold up well in these types of situations. If I were an interrogator I’d be licking my chops. Page may no longer be with the bureau, but she’s still susceptible to intimidation.

It’s a big week, Trumpers. We’ve got Page testifying on Wednesday, then her NeverTrump boytoy following suit on Thursday.

Will we find out anything new? I’m sure there will be at least a couple things, though both of them are probably lawyered up to the point of memorizing answers to any tough questions that come their way, assuming they don’t go ahead and plead the 5th to begin with, which many expect Strzok to do in the open session.

As for Page, crank up the pressure, fellas. She’ll break. I can see it in her.

Don’t squander this moment, GOP.

  1. Since Strokz is protected by “The Swamp”, my hope is that the GOP wussies we have known them to be don’t fail us now. Jordan deserves this collar and if we have to I hope the White House makes it’s moves. Wonder what the chances are that of happening are?
