As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Senate to Probe Russia Hack, Trump Connection

The Senate Intelligence Committee will conduct a bipartisan investigation into Russia’s pre-election hacking, including a probe into “any intelligence regarding links between Russia and individuals associated with political campaigns,” the Washington Examiner reported.

The decision comes a day after top intelligence officials briefed Senate lawmakers and left Democrats angry that they were not informed prior to the election about the Intelligence Community’s knowledge of Russian hacking. Democrats also want more information about unverified intelligence that the Trump campaign was in contact with Russian operatives.

  1. A prayer for this time, and the coming “100 days”:
    Father God, please protect the “new Cyrus” you have sent us, and guard Donald John Trump, his family, all who voted for him, and everyone who supports him, from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Psalm 83:
    “O God, do not remain silent;
    do not turn a deaf ear,
    do not stand aloof, O God.
    2 See how your enemies growl,
    how your foes rear their heads.
    3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
    they plot against those you cherish.
    4 “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
    so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”
    13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
    like chaff before the wind.
    14 As fire consumes the forest
    or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
    15 so pursue them with your tempest
    and terrify them with your storm.
    16 Cover their faces with shame, Lord,
    so that they will seek your name.
    17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;
    may they perish in disgrace.
    18 Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord—
    that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.”

    • Thank you Tina. That was wonderful. I want to know what makes the democratic communist party think that they own America and they alone should run America? Where do get the dumb idea that America belongs to them and they can tell the American people how to live by their immoral rules? We truly need a revolution to get rid of these people, they will not stop, they are fanatics just like the Muslims! Bloodthirsty for Trump’s blood, when in truth, Trump has never did anything to these monsters who prey on people and fabricate and lie about Trump and other people! This “democratic” party is un-American, hates America, most of the party is filled with imbeciles that follow their leaders like sheep, without a brain in their heads. I only hope that God will rid these morons and evil ones from the earth so that we can have a loving beautiful country again to work hard in and not be afraid of bombs bursting in our neighborhoods because the democratic party (communists) are trying to turn our country into a middle eastern third world where bombs exploding and death and destruction is an everyday occurrence. Hate and knives and guns all around. Chicago has become like that with gangs roaming and killing and hopefully, Trump will right some of the wrongs that the Mayors in New York, California, Chicago, etc. have done to this country which is slowly becoming a hell hole because of people like Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Mayors of Chicago and other places like San Francisco which was so beautiful and now it has turned into a filthy place overrun with desperate people who will kill or shoot you for no reason whatsoever. What has happened to America? Can it come back? Can we have decent people living here like we did? Let’s all pray for Trump that he can do something without interference from envious and evil people who have no loyalty to their country and want to destroy it because they are low I.Q., riddled with jealousy of Trump, and WILL DO EVERYTHING TO UNDERMINE HIM BECAUSE THEY CAN! THEY LEARNED A NEW TRICK, SUBVERT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SAY ANYTHING, DO ANYTHING, AND THE CIA AND FBI WILL DO NOTHING TO STOP THEM SO THEY CONTINUE TO DO AND SAY THESE EVIL LIES BECAUSE THEY CAN!!!

      • Bernie, agree, what makes them think they own the country ? And I also believe they will do everything to undermine Trump, starting with the Inauguration. It is beginning to get dangerous. The toxic Deep State at work.

      • Great rant, Bernie! Loved it!

        “What makes the democratic communist party think that they own America and they alone should run America? Where do get the dumb idea that America belongs to them and they can tell the American people how to live by their immoral rules? ”

        What indeed! Hubris! Your own answer is correct. Like all abusers, they stomp on others “because they can!” Abusers will always abuse any time they can get away with it, for no other reason than because they want to. They never learn and they never change (excepting of course Jesus Christ’s saving power to change).

        Nice people give them the benefit of the doubt. I remember in the last days of Obama’s first campaign thinking “these people are acting like abusers” by the way they bullied the Press Corps and the way Obama would very nicely say the exact opposite of what he was doing, and ESPECIALLY the way the entire Left would project all of their own sins and faults and actions onto innocent conservatives….
        but I talked myself into giving them the benefit of the doubt for awhile. And I have a pretty strong BS meter!

        We can’t continue to give them any leeway. From now on, my answer to any of their accusations is “I. Don’t. Care.” Because I don’t. Their opinions no longer matter to me any more than the opinion of a termite.

        • Trump said at the very beginning, he wears a bullet proof vest and he packs and knows how to shoot too! Let’s hope he doesn’t have to. My father said don’t worry too much UNTIL it happens. We all have to be brave for Trump.

  2. I don’t know about this.

    I don’t believe anybody on this issue — not the intelligence community, certainly not the Dems but Congress as a whole, and not the “media”.

    This will only further politicize the issue and turn into a long long long path of challenging the legitimacy of a sitting President and an established Administration.

    Bad idea. If the Senate Intelligence Committee wants to investigate it, do it in private and responsibly. This will be a can of worms.

    • This is being done on purpose to Trump, the people have to rise up and have a real revolution if we want to save America from these political evil ones. If the FBI was really on the level they would have charged Hillary Clinton. There is also 6 billion dollars missing from the State Dept. when Hillary was there and no one ever says a word about that and the deals the Clintons made with foreign governments. They only want to ruin Trump, so now we don’t even have an honest FBI and CIA anymore, which is astounding to me! If we did they would have charged Clinton and not be going after fake news about Trump! It is so obvious that there is a conspiracy with the FBI, IRS, CIA etc. regarding Trump. A revolution by the people is needed otherwise we will be a socialist/communist third-world country in the future.

        • I know, and you what really kills me, is that all these democrats (communists in reality) want to let in all foreign people from any country BUT NOW THEY ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT TRUMP IN CAHOOTS WITH RUSSIA? So, these liars love all the terrorists coming here but they are suspicious about the Russians and Trump? Who are they kidding. All of a sudden they don’t want a foreign country in our eleletion! But if they won with Clinton they wouldn’t be saying a word. All these commies are 24/7 trying to get Trump while they the dems let in all these foreigners who could be terrorists. They are so full of it! And they getter leave Trump alone but that won’t happen unless the people rise up, and tell that phony civil right leader that Trump doesn’t need a turncoat at his party, so all these dumb un-American people who dont’ want to attend the inaug., like who cares? Trump shouldn’t want people like that at his inaug. He doesn’t and shouldn’t work with people that are so blatantly anti-American. Let them go move to another country, we’ll all be better off without them. Merrill Streep included with all her friends, Barbra Streisand and Rosie O’Donnell, definitely, all these people are traitors, horrors.

    • Grace, it is so crazy. It is Russia, Russia, Russia again. Are they trying to brainwash people ? What is so bad about Russia, a country with white, Christian people, people crazy about hockey, winter sports, theater,movies, music,tourism, people who every year participate in our grand European Music competition, in our various sports arrangements etc ? People like us. What about all the money and links between Saudi and Hillary ? I am not going to describe in what evil ways this country differs from ours, you know it. And the nationality of most of the criminals in that September attack…

      • Swedish Lady, you are the best! Yeah, why Russia? Because thats all they have, say and do anything, so jealous of our Trump man. All of a sudden they hate Russia, but LOVE all the other foreigners who could be terrorists, come into our country. They are so full of it, such dumb people are the democrats. they are not the dem party of old, they are now filled with fanatics, low-class people, low I.Q. people, racists too! Nothing but trouble they are. And like I said above, they say and do these things because they can! In another country they would be in jail or dead for the things they do. They are too stupid to realize that. This is what they are taught in colleges and schools now in the U.S., socialism/communism. If America is to be saved, we need leaders who will stop these nuts.

    • I agree with you Grace. It is impossible to know since everything is so convoluted. We just have to make up our own minds. How did everything get so twisted?

      I have “liked” the pages of each of my Federal and State Reps and Senators, and am committing to post there thanking them when they do good, and telling them when I want them to oppose or support something. Nicely, but I’m going to try to at least do that. I will oppose giving any oxygen to this issue. Your phrasing is very good and I may plagiarize your post as a rationale if you don’t mind :-)

      As to whether foreigners interfered, honestly? I. Don’t. Care. Not any longer. For once, the best person won the Presidency and I’m standing on faith that God’s work is being done, whatever betide and however it looks from here.

  3. Ben Kingsley in the movie “Sneakers” “Listen Marty, in the future, power comes from information, whomever controls the information, will control the world!”
    Or something like that. Have to watch it again..

  4. So instead of getting down to the real issues that plague our country and brought about the election of DJT, the Senate is going to spin their wheels and waste valuable time and money on pursuing utter nonsense.
    Seems the more things change the more they stay the same.

  5. I’m wondering if there will be any investigation into any possible contact between the Clinton’s and Sanders’contact with foreign governments for the purpose of impacting the election. I remember reading that Edward Kennedy did that back in the day.

  6. Political theater is what they’re doing and they know it. The Deep State is just pushing back against the Trump Administration and all they have is some unsubstantiated claims that Russians “hacked” the election. Pathetic.
