The wreckage was impossible to avoid as it fell over the entire nation and obliter- ated all those who lied and believed the lies. For 2+ years, Democrats and their media propaganda minis- ters lied to the entire coun- try. Everything they said, EVERYTHING, about Trump-Russia collusion was a COMPLETE LIE. There was NO COLLU- SION between President Trump, his election cam- paign, and the Russians. LAST WEEK, the Muel- ler Report was released. In bold letters, the report was stamped, "NO COL- LUSION" Robert Mueller headed an investigation that employed 19 pro- Hillary lawyers and 40 FBI agents. Their task was to find evidence that anyone associated with Donald Trumps election campaign colluded or conspired with anyone in Russia to rig the 2016 election. Mueller had an unlimited budget and no timeframe. It was a carte blanche investiga- tion and a certainty that Trump had colluded; all Mueller had to do was find evidence. After two years of investigating that included 500+ warrants issued, 2,800 subpoenas for documents and records, and over 500 witness in- terviews, the investigation determined that the Trump campaign DID NOT COL- to the Trump- Russian collu- sion narrative. When I say almost every media outlet, Fox News, conservative talk radio, and conservative websites were the only ones not part of the lie. NBC, MS- NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NPR, Holly- wood celebrities, late night comedy, late night talk, ev- ery major newspaper (NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tri- bune, St. Louis Post-Dis- patch, Seattle Post-Intelli- gencer, USA Today, etc.), Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, etc. were all part of a complete lie. For 2+ years, every one of them repeated a ver- sion of the same lie. They didn't buy into a lie; they were part of the lie. Over 500,000 artides were writ- ten about Trump-Russia " collusion. Network news spent 20% of their entire news coverages on collu- sion; CNN and MSNBC spent upwards of 75% on collusion. It was impossible to not hear about Trump- Russia collusion. Non-stop, 24/7, the likes of CNN and MSNBC harped on Trump-Russia collusion. News anchors, guest com- mentators, news colum- nists, and former Obama officials constantly and continually said "I've seen the evidence of collusion" or "Trump is a traitor" or "Trump-Russian collu- sion is irrefutable:' Dozens and dozens of times, John Brennan, former CIA Di- rector, and James Clapper, former national security adviser said they've seen evidence that Trump col- luded. Every single da ; for over two years, Democrat 5/oo O/;v'er politicians such as Hillary, Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, and Cory Booker went on network news and Sunday talk shows repeat- ing the Trump-Russian collusion narrative. If you doubted collusion or asked for proof, you were mocked, ridiculed, and belittled by the leftist elites as being as ignorant as are "flat-earthers." Turns out - NONE OF IT WAS TRUE. There was no Trump col- lusion. It never happened. THEY ALL LIED and every one of them knew they were lying. ASK YOURSELF, why did the Democrats and the media invent and perpe- trate this lie? Simple, they wanted to insure that Hill- ary got elected; and then, onceTrump was dected, to nullify the results. The media says they don't like being called Fake News or Enemy of the People. Tough Shyster. The media is Fake News. The Dems, the Deep State, and the media attempted a coup against the country and against the 60+ million who voted for Donald Trump. They engaged in SEDITION against the country and against the American people. That makes the Dems, the Deep State, and the media - En- emy of the People. And it makes those who believed their lies culpable. TRUMP'S SUPPORT- ERS knew he didn't col- lude. Mueller's report only told us what we already knew. Over the past two years I've written at least a dozen articles about the phony collusion narra- tive. I'm not elated that Mueller's report vindi- cated President Trump. I'M ANGRY AS H*LL. From the get go, anyone with any common sense knew there was no collusion. You had to be a complete idiot or a Democrat (I repeat myself) to believe that any collusion occurred. I'm r ANGRY that for 2+ years , we were misdirected from the country's real problems (the opioid crisis, immi- gration crisis, improving ,: education, foreign policy, building infrastructure, etc.) to an attempted coup. I'm ANGRY that we were lied to by elites who know 7 they're smarter than you and know what's best for you. For 2+ years, we've endured media lies, after Democrat lies, after Hol- "" lywood lies, after more me- dia lies. Their level of deceit is criminal. People are sent to prison for lying under oath or lying to investiga- tors (for only one lie); yet, we've been lied to by every single Democrat and 95% of the media - for over two years. I've never been more " disgusted at anything as I am at the dishonesty and "' deceitfulness of the media :' and the Democrats. Un- believably, the NY Times " and Washington Post " even won Pulitzer Prizes ': for reporting a fake story. ": They HAVE NO SHAME *' and no humiliation. Proof will be that, despite their " dishonesty and deceitful- " ness, NONE of the LIARS will resign or get fired or apologize or show contri- '; tion whatsoever. They will " continue to lie, and their ' viewers and voters will ' likely continue believing :: the lies they're being told. : As a country, I don't know " how we survive the level " of deceit, sheer dishon- " esty, and utter stupidity as ' we have in the Democrat - Party, as we have in the ' media, and as we have a constituency that doesn't ' care and cannot figure out " that they're being lied to. God Help Us All! Continued from Front heard some popping sounds from the home and turned around to find the house was on fire. The men ran inside to get Fuller out of his upstairs bedroom. In the rush, one friend fractured his heel on the stairs. Nevertheless, they were able to awake Fuller and everyone got out of the home safely. However the couple is still looking for three cats and a dog, their reddish-brown-tan Laborador Retriever named Briley. They were able to find Sam, their half Beagle, halfBassett Hound, alive after the fire. The log cabin-style home was quickly engulfed in flames. A neigh- bor, Buck Penland, said the blaze was simply massive. "I'm 72 years old,' said Penland, "and I've never seen a fire like that." Catherine Kehl Fuller said she had two missed calls from her neighbor and soon after received the most dev- astating text of her life: "house on fire, boys are ok." In a panic, she quickly headed to the home. Monroe County firefighters could only beat down the massive flames as the main house was considered a total loss. They were able to save a small adjacent home on the property. Macon obstetri- cian Dr. Thomas Kehl had bought the home for his daughter Catherine last summer. His wife Claudia Kehl was helping clean on Monday and said all they can figure is an electri- cal issue started the The log-cabin style fire. Fuller before the Despite the setback, Kehl said they have found some good in their loss. For one, her daughter's wedding dress was still with the seamstress, so it was saved from the fire for use the next day. The bride, Catherine Kehl, also had their wedding rings and their passports with her. The latter allowed them to take their honeymoon cruise to Co- zumel despite the disaster back home. Kehl told the Reporter on Monday that her daughter and son-in-law love the area and plan to rebuild on the same lot. "Like the phoenix rising from the ashes,' said Claudia Kehl.

"They are very special people, a sweet couple;' said Mrs. Penland. The Penlands said the wedding, held at a Peach County farm, was beautiful even though neither bride nor groom had slept the night before. Claudia Kehl said she thinks Cath- erine Kehl Fuller, who is 19 years younger than her other daughter, will emerge stronger from the setback. "If this is the worst thing that hap- pens to them" said Kehl, "we'll be aMght" Friends have already raised $9,000 through a GoFundMe page to help the couple re-build.
