We are eating Zucchini noodles and Spaghetti Squash instead

Tonight’s Dinner

I’ll post the Recipe and update it after Supper tonight!

If it sucks I won’t print the recipe

It Definitely doesn't suck!, Just finished Dinner-Liked it


1 medium spaghetti squash (about 2 1/2 pounds)

2 teaspoons olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound large shrimp (16/20), peeled, deveined and tails removed

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter

1 tablespoon grated garlic (about 4 cloves)

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, plus more for serving

1/3 cup dry white wine

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley, plus more for serving

Freshly grated Parmesan, for serving

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise with a serrated knife and remove the seeds with a spoon. Brush the flesh of each half with 1 teaspoon of the oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Put the halves flesh-side down on a baking sheet and cook until the flesh can easily be flaked with a fork and the edges just turn brown, about 45 minutes.

Separate the strands of squash by scraping the flesh with a fork. Transfer the scraped strands to a large bowl. Cover with foil and keep warm. Reserve scraped squash bowls.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in the skillet. Add the shrimp and cook until golden pink, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the shrimp to the bowl with the squash strands.

Return the skillet to medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the wine and lemon juice. Increase the heat to high and boil until the liquid thickens slightly, about 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and the parsley.

Pour the sauce over the shrimp and squash strands and toss to combine. Transfer the mixture back into the squash bowls and top with grated Parmesan, more parsley and red pepper flakes.

Seven Damning Revelations From the IG Report

At long last the IG report is out, and while it’s found plenty of wrongdoing, the DOJ won’t be holding anyone accountable for anything.
It’s the lack of consequences that the media is viewing as proof of vindication, overlooking entirely the reasons for why there should’ve been some.

As Mike Cernovich discovered in Chapter Five of the report, there’s extensive documentation of the FBI not following FISA procedures, and then lying to judges. The evidence includes:

1. Omitted information the FBI had obtained from another U.S. government agency detailing its prior relationship with Carter Page, including that Page had been approved as an “operational contact” for the other agency from 2008 to 2013, and that Page had provided information to the other agency concerning his prior contacts with certain Russian intelligence officers, one of which overlapped with facts asserted in the FISA application;

2. Included a source characterization statement asserting that Steele’s prior reporting had been “corroborated and used in criminal proceedings,” which overstated the significance of Steele’s past reporting and was not approved by Steele’s handling agent, as required by the Woods Procedures;

3. Omitted information relevant to the reliability of Person 1, a key Steele sub-source (who was attributed with providing the information in Report 95 and some of the information in Reports 80 and 102 relied upon in the application), namely that (1) Steele himself told members of the Crossfire Hurricane team that Person 1 was a “boaster” and an “egoist” and “ma en a e in some embellishment” and (2)

4. Asserted that the FBI had assessed that Steele did not directly provide to the press information in the September 23 Yahoo News article based on the premise that Steele had told the FBI that he only shared his election-related research with the FBI and Fusion GPS, his client; this premise was incorrect and contradicted by documentation in the Woods File- Steele had told the FBI that he also gave his information to the State Department;

5. Omitted Papadopoulos’s consensually monitored statements to an FBI CHS in September 2016 denying that anyone associated with the Trump campaign was collaborating with Russia or with outside groups like Wikileaks in the release of emails;

6. Omitted Page’s consensually monitored statements to an FBI CHS in August 2016 that Page had “literally never met” or “said one word to” Paul Manafort and that Manafort had not responded to any of Page’s emails; if true, those statements were in tension with claims in Report 95 that Page was participating in a conspiracy with Russia by acting as an intermediary for Manafort on behalf of the Trump campaign; and

7. Included Page’s consensually monitored statements to an FBI CHS in October 2016 that the FBI believed supported its theory that Page was an agent of Russia but omitted other statements Page made that were inconsistent with its theory, including denying having met with Sechin and Divyekin, or even knowing who Divyekin was; if true, those statements contradicted t he claims in Report 94 that Page had met secretly with Sechin and Divyekin about future cooperat ion with Russia and shared derogatory information about candidate Clinton. None of these inaccuracies and omissions were brought to the attention of OI before the last FISA application was filed in June 2017. Consequently, these failures were repeated in all three renewal applications. Further, as we discuss later, we identified 10 additional significant errors in the renewal applications.

And that’s all just from one chapter of twelve in a 476 page report.

Barr approves unredacting Christopher Steele information ahead of report release

Christopher Steele, the British ex-spy and author of the anti-Trump dossier, was reportedly told that the Justice Department will release information about him that was previously blacked out in the department’s internal watchdog report on the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign due on Monday.

The New York Times, citing two individuals with knowledge of the situation, reported that Attorney General William Barr approved the release of the previously redacted information in Michael Horowitz’s 400-page report. The report called Steele’s heads-up unusual and said he was not given any indication of whether the information would benefit or hurt him. An after-hours email from Fox News to the Justice Department was not immediately returned.

Steele is poised to be a notable figure in the Horowitz report because he provided opposition research into the Trump campaign's connections to Russia which was funded by Democrats and the Clinton campaign.

Much of the Steele dossier has been proven discredited or unsubstantiated, including the dossier's claims that the Trump campaign was paying hackers in the United States out of a nonexistent Russian consulate in Miami, and that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen traveled to Prague to conspire with Russians.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller also was unable to substantiate the dossier's claims that Carter Page, who worked on the Trump campaign, had received a large payment relating to the sale of a share of Rosneft, a Russian oil giant, or that a lurid blackmail tape involving the president existed.

Horowitz's report, as described by people familiar with its findings, is expected to conclude there was an adequate basis for opening one of the most politically sensitive investigations in FBI history and one that Trump has denounced as a witch hunt. It began in secret during Trump's 2016 presidential run and was ultimately taken over by Mueller .

The report comes as Trump faces an impeachment inquiry in Congress centered on his efforts to press Ukraine to investigate a political rival, Democrat Joe Biden — a probe the president also claims is politically biased.


Still, the release of Inspector General Michael Horowitz's review is unlikely to quell the partisan battles that have surrounded the Russia investigation for years. It's also not the last word: A separate internal investigation continues, overseen by Trump's attorney general, William Barr and led by a U.S. attorney, John Durham. That investigation is criminal in nature, and Republicans may look to it to uncover wrongdoing that the inspector general wasn't examining.

Trump tweeted Sunday: "I.G. report out tomorrow. That will be the big story!"

Barr can declass anything he wants, POTUS Delegated to him

Americas Traitors

Every Person in this Photo deserves Capital Punishment

Today the Dept. of Justice Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, will release the much anticipated report covering a 21-month review of FBI and DOJ compliance with legal requirements surrounding FISA and the application against U.S. person Carter Page.

The report is rumored to be well over 600 pages. It will BE RELEASED HERE.

According to estimates, leaks and prior IG report releases, the report will likely be released to the public shortly after lunch around 1:00pm Eastern Time.

Expect the Media to report from pre-prepared talking points (spin) and actual analysis to take several days, the report length is estimated to be 600-1000 pages

Gonna be a tough read but that was a lot of Criminal Activity being pulled by Comey, McCabe and the their partners in Crime

Pete Hegseth Banned From Twitter For Sharing Anti-American Manifesto Of Pensacola Shooter

Fox and Friends host Pete Hegseth said he was banned from Twitter Saturday after he shared an anti-American manifesto said to have been written by Pensacola shooter Mohammed Alshamrani.

The TV journalist, 39, posted screenshots Sunday which showed his tweet, calling the actions of the gunman 'Islamist terror', was 'no longer available'. He followed up with a picture of his appeal regarding the decision.

Saudi military student Alshamrani, 21, killed three people and injured 12 when he opened fire at Navy Station Pensacola on Friday.

Hegseth shared a grab from the shooter's Twitter account Saturday, writing: 'Here's the (now blocked) tweet from Saudi Islamist Mohammed Alshamrani, who murder 3 brave Americans in Florida.

The coward posted it just hours before his terrorist attack. This is Islamist terror. No reason to ever mince words. Saudi Arabia must be held to account.'

Alshamrani's social media, which was taken down subsequent to the attack, appeared to show a variety of anti-Israel postings and a quote from deceased al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Looks Like Lindsey Graham is on the Ukraine take too. Swamp Rat

Senator Lindsey Graham appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo and announces he will take all appropriate efforts to stop the truth about Ukraine from being exposed in the Senate. This interview is a critical first step to understanding motives. CTH will expand in the next few posts that will highlight *WHY* Graham will bury information.

First, watch Senator Graham say unequivocally he will not call witnesses and will quickly move to dismiss the House impeachment effort. Pay close attention to the part where Graham says calling congressmen to testify is dangerous, and he will not call Adam Schiff because he does not want to go down this path.

These comments by Senator Lindsey Graham are very self serving. Why?… Because Senator Graham participated in the exploitation of Ukraine for his own benefit. In essence Graham is fearful that too much inquiry into what took place with Ukraine in 2014 through 2016 will expose his own participation and effort along with former Ambassador Marie Yovanovich.

Graham is attempting to end the impeachment effort because the underlying discoveries have the potential to expose the network of congressional influence agents, John McCain and Graham himself included, during any witness testimony.

The Republicans are no better than the Democrats, Thank God for President Trump

Schiffs going to be sued over phone records

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the smug and dishonest chair of the House Intelligence Committee, the impeachment guru, has potentially abused the power of his office over phone records. Most recently, he obtained secret subpoenas of phone logs of the President’s attorney and Rudy’s former associate Lev Parnas. Along with that, came phone logs of calls with reporter John Solomon, Rep. Devin Nunes and his aide Derek Harvey.

We don’t know for sure how Schiff got all the records. We need more information.

Presumptions and lies followed, based on records the ranking member said are inaccurate.

The issue of attorney-client privilege arises in this seizure of personal records. And what happened to the 4th Amendment? What was the probable cause?

Trump has the Democrats by the Balls and they know it
