Pictures below were off the Internet to show my support for “recreational weed” If I could have bought it legally I could have saved THOUSANDS of prescription dollars during the past year buying opioids to stop the horrible pain from Peripheral Neuropathy!…..The amount of medical Marijuana I was offered would not have been enough besides the amount of government paperwork I had to fill out would have filled a dumpster! It was easier and quicker if I made $100,000 a year, was a minority with a long criminal record to receive EBT which is short for a debit card called the Michigan Bridge Card to purchase food products and access cash benefits!…….Papa Mike
The attorney general announced a new marijuana directive on Thursday. And he forgot to tell anyone in advance.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has pulled off something that would have been unthinkable just a few years back: he managed to rally Republican lawmakers behind weed.
Sessions announced on Thursday that he would be rescinding a policy from the Obama administration that had discouraged prosecutors in states where marijuana was legalized from bringing charges for marijuana-related crimes, unless they involved distribution to minors, revenue sale benefiting gangs or cartels and a few other federal priorities. In its place, federal prosecutors would be given discretion (not guidance) to pursue marijuana-related prosecutions.
The announcement was a reversal of a memo authored by former Deputy Attorney General James Cole in 2013, who wrote the Obama-era guidelines after Colorado and Washington voted to decriminalize marijuana for recreational use. And it managed to tick off a number of lawmakers from those states as well as the eight others—in addition to Washington D.C.—who have voted to legalize recreational marijuana use since.
Charlie Baker, the Republican Governor of Massachusetts, called the Sessions policy “the wrong decision,” while pledging to “review any potential impacts.” Republican Governor Brian Sandoval of Nevada told The Daily Beast in a statement that he believed “Nevada’s marijuana industry is a model for other states.” Bill Walker, the Independent Governor of Alaska, called the decision “disappointing,” adding that he was “committed to upholding the will of Alaskans on this issue and maintaining our State’s sovereign rights to manage our own affairs while protecting federal interests.” Alaska became the third state to legalize recreational marijuana in 2015.
And on the Hill, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) went a step further saying that he would hold up the confirmation of future Department of Justice staff unless the Sessions policy was changed.
“The decision today blindsided me and many others who were under the belief that this wouldn’t happen,” Gardner told reporters. “If the Department of Justice wants another nominee confirmed, they better fix this.”
Give them the support they need. It’s both in their interest and in ours to get rid of the mullahs.

As fierce protests continued across Iran for the sixth consecutive night Tuesday, among the thousands taking to the streets were those who widely appreciate words of support from President Donald Trump – and hope for more substantial support.
“Here is real hell,” a 31-year-old protest leader in Tehran, who Fox News will identify only as Azi, said in a telephone interview during the early hours of Wednesday morning. “This is a real revolution against the mullahs. Iran is uprising. I thank Mr. Trump for his support, but we need more.”
President Trump has taken to Twitter several times to note the protests in Iran, and on Wednesday morning hinted the U.S. could become more involved – in due time.
“Such respect for the people of Iran as they try to take back their corrupt government. You will see great support from the United States at the appropriate time!”
While the protests – a jolting, collective response to Iran’s receding economy, flagrant corruption and the escalating cost of fuel and goods – sprung up unexpectedly, the turmoil had been brewing for some time. According to one U.S-based intelligence source, the possibility of large-scale demonstrations – or “riots” as described by Iran’s state-owned media – have been on the table for the last two years.
The seeds of protest were sown months after sanctions were lifted by the Obama administration as part of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – commonly called “the Iran deal” – when many felt that they had not benefitted from the fiscal boost. Younger Iranians in particular people banded together as advocates for change, largely through social media and apps such as Instagram and Telegram.
Iranian authorities have responded by shutting down social media access, making it more difficult for protesters to organize, but making demonstrators more creative in their quests to circumvent the ban.
“Obama betrayed the Iranian people. He gave the mullahs are ransom and cooperated with (Supreme Leader) Khamenei, he betrayed the Syrian people too. But Trump did not. So we have real expectations,” said Azi. “We want sanctions against the Iranian regime. They plundered our money. The U.S should not pay the mullahs.”

Backstabbing, Harassing, Lying’: Don Jr. Slams Bannon After ‘Treason’ Remarks
‘Trump Governed Without Him’: Gingrich Says Bannon Has ‘Exaggerated Sense of Self-Importance’
The former assistant FBI director who oversaw the bureau’s office in North Carolina said “nothing about the [Hillary Clinton] investigation was right.”
Chris Swecker said that the FBI always uses grand juries and search warrants to obtain information about suspects or witnesses.
“It doesn’t take a Congressional investigation [to show that] nothing about that investigation was right,” Swecker said.
Tucker Carlson noted that James Comey’s FBI began drafting Clinton’s exoneration document before all evidence had been gathered and before all witnesses were interviewed.
“That’s not how a real, thorough… investigation is conducted,” Swecker said, adding that the FBI normally doesn’t go to witnesses and ask “mother, may I?” to obtain information.
Swecker said that when he ran the FBI criminal division and Comey served on the corporate fraud task force, both men “played hardball.”
Swecker suspected Comey let his “inner circle” dictate the Clinton and Trump investigations, which led to them being allegedly tainted by political actions like Agent Peter Strzok’s text messages.
He said Comey’s “inner circle” had “predetermined opinions” about Clinton and Trump.
“That’s not the FBI that I know,” he said.

The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it…..
The American flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died serving it.
AIRLINE CAPTAIN – You will not regret reading this one. I Promise
My lead flight attendant came to me and said, “We have an H.R. on this flight.” (H.R. stands for Human Remains.)
“Are they military?” I asked.
‘Yes’, she said.
‘Is there an escort?’ I asked.
‘Yes, I’ve already assigned him a seat’.
‘Would you please tell him to come to the Flight Deck. You can board him early,” I said…
A short while later a young army sergeant entered the flight deck. He was the image of the perfectly dressed soldier. He introduced himself and I asked him about his soldier.
The escorts of these fallen soldiers talk about them as if they are still alive and still with us. ‘My soldier is on his way back to Virginia,’ he said. He proceeded to answer my questions, but offered no words.
I asked him if there was anything I could do for him and he said no. I told him that he had the toughest job in the military, and that I appreciated the work that he does for the families of our fallen soldiers. The first officer and I got up out of our seats to shake his hand. He left the Flight Deck to find his seat.
We completed our preflight checks, pushed back and performed an uneventful departure. About 30 minutes into our flight, I received a call from the lead flight attendant in the cabin.
‘I just found out the family of the soldier we are carrying, is also on board’, she said. She then proceeded to tell me that the father, mother, wife and 2-year old daughter were escorting their son, husband, and father home. The family was upset because they were unable to see the container that the soldier was in before we left.
Here’s the thing about road rage, it strikes at any given moment and 9 times out of 10, the madness that people exhibit is on dangerous, volcanic levels. Watching people scream bloody murder at you or those around you is probably more terrifying than climbing Mount Everest or swimming with sharks or getting into a heated argument with your wife that lands you on the couch. Yeah, it gets THAT bad. That’s precisely why we decided to round up not just the funniest windshield notes that get left behind, but also the insanely scary ones that may lead to some online counseling. Take a look for yourself and you’ll see just what I mean.

A couple on an African Safari witnessed a small antelope being chased down by a cheetah.
While the kill was about to happen before their eyes, the husband casually remarked, “I’ll bet the antelope gets away.”
The wife answered, “If that antelope survives this one, I’ll give you sex every day for the rest of your life.”
The deadly chase was recorded below!
Patriotic actor James Woods called out ‘groping Joe Biden’ late Tuesday night on Twitter.
Thank you James Woods for bringing attention to ‘Groping Joe’!
James Woods tweeted a picture of former Vice President Joe Biden grabbing a child’s face with a caption, “Hope this guy runs in 2020… then he hash tagged #GropingJoe
TGP’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, former Vice President Joe Biden has a reputation for being handsy and a hugger with women and girls; being quite shameless about intruding on women and girls’ personal spaces. The media treats that aggressive sexual behavior as ‘Biden being Biden‘ because he is a gregarious pro-abortion liberal who deserves sympathy because he lost his first wife and a son to tragic early deaths.
