    Trump Tames Billary
    TRUMP WILL COUNTERPUNCH SO WELL EVEN BILL WILL BE CALLING HER CROOKED HILLARY

    Back in the days of the peace dividend, “Read my lips,” and “It’s the economy stupid” we were told we got two for the price of one. And we sure did. One president to chase skirts in the Oval Office and one harridan to persecute his victims: Billary, the corrupt couple from Whitewater. Remember back in the Sleazy Nineties when the Clinton interlewed between George I and George II lowered the standards for what was acceptable public conduct. Remember all the fun we had with these two madcap political savants: Chinagate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Filegate, the Cattle Futures Miracle, Lootergate, Drug Dealer Donor Scandal, Ponzi Scheme, and the Political Favor Scandal.

      Thank you, tuskyou, for sharing this link from Ammoland. Americans like the Terry family have suffered so much and then when they have tried to get answers, they are stonewalled and ignored.

      Always remember and never forget those that sacrificed for our great country. Devote a few minutes of your weekend to honoring those that fought the good fight. Well done, good and faithful servants.

          I agree with you whole heartedly. Whenever I saw him I got a very uneasy feeling about him. This matched the evil feeling I got from Al Gore. The two of them together was revolting. As the years have gone by Al Gore has lived up to the evil feelings I got from him. One of the worst treasonous things they did was when Clinton designated the Grand Staircase Escalante monument in Utah. This monument locked up one of only two clean coal resources in the World. Meanwhile Gore was over in Asia making deals for a foreign resource. This was despicable because the land and clean coal resource were to be used for paying for Education in Utah. This is what globalists have done to be able to control the states in this country. As recent events have progressed the clintons and gores have continued to sell U.S. resources to the world. I think that is one of the reasons that World Leaders seem rattled, because they know that their gravy train and theft of our resources will end.

    The following begins a series of four comments from a new commenter to the Tree House … “carol of Australia”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    carol of Australia says:
    May 28, 2016 at 12:05 am (Edit)

    This begins a four part comment on Obama’s pronouncement that World Leaders are now rattled by Donald Trump. As POTUS, Mr. Trump will save the US from coming under the future rule of a New World Order and One World Government controlled by a powerful international elite to which these World Leaders belong. A One World Government would fulfill a decades-long plan devised by Austrian diplomat and Freemason, Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi (1894-1972) regarded as the founding father of the current European Union although not much is known about him today.

    His 1925 book ‘Practical Idealism (Praktischer Idealismus) sets out his plan for a United Europe, backed by the Vatican, under a centralized unelected government envisioned as the prototype for the US and the rest of the world when a New World Order is finalized. It’s simply not possible to buy this book today. It is censored in Germany despite not being present on the official list of books censored by the German government!

    The essence of Kalergi’s Plan is outlined by Austrian writer Gerd Honsik: “Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination and, subsequently, the elimination of nations by means of ethnic separatist movements or mass allogeneic (genetically dissimilar) immigration in order to create a multiethnic flock without quality, easily controllable by the ruling class. Kalergi characterized the resulting multiethnic flock as cruel and unfaithful but maintained the elite must still deliberately create them in order to achieve their own superiority: ‘Then the elite will first eliminate democracy – the rule of the people. Next, the elite will eliminate the people via miscegenation, thereby replacing the ruling white race with an easily controllable mestizo race. By abolishing the principle of equality of all before the law, avoiding and punishing any criticism of minorities, and protecting minorities with special laws, the masses will be suppressed.’”

    Part II – World Leaders rattled!
    Kalergi’s ideas were the basis for the European Union’s policy of high levels of immigration combined with laws protecting these migrants under the guise of humanitarianism aimed at destroying European identity and creating a single race under the rule of the elite, i.e., white genocide! The European Union has been indoctrinating Europeans to tolerate and accept politically correct multiculturalism and infiltration via forced mass migration of hordes of Africans and Asians with the real goal being to completely denature the European people by converting them into a collection of individuals with no ethnic, historical or cultural cohesion. The initial low birth rate justification has now been replaced with Merkel’s ‘All Refugees Welcome’ declaration, thereby speeding up the process.

    Western Europe’s current political leaders know full well that Kalergi was the author of the European Union. It was he who suggested Beethoven’s hymn as the EU’s national anthem and he was very active in connection with the design of the EU logo. Europe’s Coudenhove-Kalergi prize was created in his honor to be awarded to Europeans who have excelled in promoting his depraved plan. Better known today as The Charlemagne Prize, the official p.c. description is: “for those able to exercise a political influence and make an outstanding contribution to the process of European integration.” Among those awarded this prize are Angela Merkel, Herman Van Rompuy (former Prime Minister of Belgium and first President of the European Council) and this year’s recipient Pope Francis.

    Part III – World Leaders rattled
    President John F. Kennedy said in an address on Freemasonry to newspaper publishers on April 27, 1961: “The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers cited to justify it.” (No wonder he was assassinated and I fear there is now a high danger of Mr. Trump being eliminated in the exact same way.)
    In his book Kissinger on the Couch (1975), Rear Admiral Chester Ward, Former Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Navy and CFR member for sixteen years, stated: “The CFR has as a goal submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government. In the entire CFR lexicon there is no term of revulsion carrying a meaning as deep as ‘America First’” That is the very term now frequently being used by Mr. Trump, in conjunction with ‘Make America Great Again.’ Ward also says in this book: “Once the ruling members of the CFR have decided the U.S. Government should adopt a particular policy, the very substantial research facilities of the CFR are put to work to develop arguments, intellectual and emotional, to support the new policy and to confound and discredit, intellectually and politically, any opposition.”

    Part IV
    The underlying truth behind the politically correct ‘diversity’ and ‘multicultural’ labels, as well as the ‘racist’ and ‘Islamophobia’ charges, occasionally leaks out. In 1955, G. Brock Chisholm, a known Kalergi disciple and former director of the World Health Organization, said: “In all places, people must practice the limitation of births so as to create a single race in a new world that is dependent on a central authority.” Under the media’s dual pressure of misinformation and the propaganda of humanitarianism, Europeans and the rest of the West are being induced and pressured to deny their origins as some kind of progressive humanitarian act and to believe that holding onto their origins and cultural identity is ‘racism’ except, of course, for the elite who will remain entrenched at the top.
    America, formerly the home of the brave and the free has become the home of those who think they are free. None are more enslaved and manipulated than those who think they are free. The threat is whatever the Ministry of Truth and the complicit news media says it is. This is behind the agenda to have all guns banned so that those who would resist will have been totally disarmed. Next is to have the people accept solutions to problems that will instigate the changes the government wanted but which the people would have initially been unwilling to accept. This is intended to likewise lead to worldwide solutions which will firmly establish a One World Order.

    My fear is that those who have long been planning for this NWO will be loath to accept an 8 year delay by allowing the possibility for Mr. Trump to become POTUS under a pledge of ‘America First.’

    This female’s ambition just won’t die. Seems she wants more out of life than being Cruz’s mommy. With loser groups like RedState puffing her, she thinks she’s got that “something extra.”

    “She’s confirmed! Come see Carly Fiorina, along with other leading conservative speakers, at this year’s RedState Gathering in Denver, Colorado. Make plans to join us today at our early bird discount rate.

    Mrs. Fiorina is a tested leader in the conservative movement, standing alongside Americans who refuse to settle for a status quo that no longer works. She believes we must end crony capitalism by fighting the policies that allow it to flourish, and that we must hold our bloated, inept government bureaucracy accountable. Carly is a champion of conservative principles that lift people up and recognize that all Americans have the right to fulfill their God-given potential.

    Join us in Denver for your chance to see Carly and ask her your questions. Visit Redstategathering.com for more information and a complete list of this year’s speakers. If you missed Carly’s speech from last year’s event in Atlanta, you can catch up with the video below.

    One of the interesting and probably deliberately underreported aspects of Trump’s rise is his growing global following.

    I don’t have a lot of Facebook friends (and I’ve had to unfriend a number of Cruzbots and liberals who were making it unpleasant for me to even visit my own page), but I’m received a number of friend requests from Trump followers overseas. I’ve been chatting with a very well-spoken and educated 19-year old Austrian who watches Trump’s rallies online. I find that amazing. Two Germans and two Englishmen have also friended me recently. All pro-Trump.

    BTW, my FB page has basically become a pro-Trump propaganda page so I welcome anyone to visit (click on my profile). I cull through it regularly to delete stuff that is more than a few days old.

      That’s been a big problem in real life for me: friends who are addicted to Glenn Beck and thus have a very twisted view of, well, everything, most notably of Donald Trump. A couple of weeks ago I called one friend to find that she had been crying all morning because she thinks the country will be ruined now that Cruz is out. My closest friend for many years seems to be in a serious depression now. I told all of them long before this campaign season that they should stop listening to that crazy man. It seems to be an addiction. They are miserable listening to it, but can’t seem to stop. Normally news junkies, they’ve now narrowed their news input to Beck with a smattering of Rush. Ugh! I don’t even like spending time with them because they just sound so stupid, plus it’s a bummer being around them. And they are missing out on the .most amazing miracle of modern American politics: Donald J. Trump and the beautiful people on the Trump train!

There was a link on The Blaze from a poster who I see here every now and then or at least I think it’s the same person because the name is the same. The research and sources are the best around.

      I hope @realDonaldTrump will be the next US President.
      Good for America, good for Europe. We need brave leaders

      Geert Wilders also came out to Australia to the launch of a new Party, Australian Liberty Alliance, of which, Bernard Gaynor is a founding member and running in our upcoming Federal Election.

      This really is a “Must Watch” –

      The ADF, Islam and Australian Values

      16 Sep 2014
      Former Army Intelligence Officer Bernard Gaynor presents an unfiltered insider view into the mindset of the current ADF leadership.

      Politically correct blindness as to the motivation of the enemy combined with a policy to accommodate the desires of minority pressure groups over traditional Australian values, increasingly confuses, alienates and endangers our men and women in uniform.

      Is this the ‘Rainbow ADF’ to protect Australia in the volatile years ahead?

      Launch of the Australian Liberty Alliance

      October 23, 2015

      On Tuesday, the Australian Liberty Alliance celebrated its official launch in Western Australia. The party was fortunate to have Dutch parliamentarian, Geert Wilders, as its official guest and keynote speaker.

      Wilders is a man of great courage, leadership and vision. His Party for Freedom has endured years of hate-filled derision from the ruling class and the media. But it is now the most popular party in the Netherlands because Wilders has had the foresight to oppose Islam and to protect the Dutch people and Dutch culture.

      We need to do the same in Australia: we must stop the appeasement of a minority that has more of its sons fighting for the Islamic State than the Australian Defence Force. It’s time to put Australia first again.

    It is puzzling to me how this election is even close. Hillary is married to a former president that was impeached for lying under oath. Hillary herself is under FBI criminal investigation. Yet the polls are neck to neck and trump has had to rise 11 points in one month just to make them neck to neck. What the hell is going on here? Do you guys understand that the democrats could run an actual literal donkey as a candidate and the election results would still be 51/49?

            • Hi TrumpIllinois2016. The majority of the media in the West, not just the US, are aware of the elite’s plan for no borders to bring about a one world government composed of unelected members of that elite. They know that they are and will continue to be highly useful to that elite in implementing this plan. Being at that ‘in the know’ level, they see themselves as just a slightly lower level of that elite, so well above ‘the masses’ and protected from any possible downside of a future undemocratic culture.

              Self worth is important to us all and the assessment of their own self worth for those ‘in the know’ is thereby enhanced. So they will continue disseminating the elite’s p.c. propaganda, justifying praising and aiding the planned path to the intended ultimate outcome. Choices have consequences and most are likely to find they have become more like Pravda in the old totalitarian USSR but by then it will be way too late.

              At this stage, the possibility of Donald Trump as POTUS, first amusedly dismissed, has become a severe threat. If they are unable to deliver the expected result (whether Clinton or Cruz) their self worth is diminished. If Mr. Trump remains safe and is, as I fervently hope, elected President, they can be expected to continue to criticize every move he makes and to attack him at every level. As is usual practice, they will also promote every prominent individual of note who wishes to criticize him and/or what he does. Their views of their own self worth also mean that any individual within their ranks who has the intelligence and courage to run counter to this general theme will be either demonized or demoted and ignored.

      most people haven’t paid attention to Trump stirring the pot leading up to the supposed debate acceptance. Trump’s only interest here is getting both sides in the Dem primary as mad at each other as possible. His tweets days and weeks before about “they’re stealing it from Bernie”, “the process is so corrupt” was doing just that. anyone who thinks different doesn’t understand how mental chess works. Also the rules from the DNC and probably RNC forbid this because Bernie isn’t declared the Blue team champion unlike Trump will be the Red team nominee. Bernie saves face from not having to back out himself and his supporters get even more fired up that he was supposedly dissed by Trump and the DNC rules. if Bernie can close the gap enough with Hillary among pledged delegates it will lead to another Dem contested convention similar to 1968 and that will ensure a huge Trump landslide victory.

    Bernie lost all credibility when he gave Clinton a pass on the email crimes. I visited Burlington Vermont fairly frequently during his time as mayor and even then it was obvious he was trying to create a little pacifist/hippie enclave detached from the real world. He was known as an eccentric ‘character’ back then but had a certain populist streak that kind of charmed enough of the locals to elect him. I recall many a conversation about him at the Rusty Scuffer on Church Street!

    It’s somewhat amazing that he has managed to endure politically for so many years. Tolerated as a gadfly, he was harmless nationally and barely made a serious impression of any consequence. But the Democratic Party has never really progressed from that radical leftist mindset many of their current leaders grew up with. It was under the radar somewhat, but the last eight years have brought it back unconventionally via Obama’s reframing of the issues. So we have the evil self absorbed Clinton machine representing the globalist orientation of liberalism forced to deal with Rip van Sanders and his neo-modern revival of a socialist youth crusade.

    Both paths are just erroneous and misguided. Sanders at least may be more authentic and sincere in his ideals, but is helplessly and hopelessly out of touch with the dangers of the present world. As hated and flawed as he was, Nixon was a necessarily corrective force in 1968. And Reagan also was a shining light at a dark moment. Trump may be facing an even more ominous set of problems but somehow, someway, America produces the right man when absolutely necessary. Destiny moves in mysterious ways, beyond the grasp of human understanding.

  24. Election of Trump and a common sense Congress is only the first step. We have to take a sledgehammer to the Supreme Court and the judiciary and knock it back down to what the founders intended. The way things are now, they are an oligarchy and there is no political will among the people to put them in their place. The politicians prefer it this way because it gives them cover. Judicial review is nowhere in the Constitution and it was usurped by them in the Marbury vs Madison case. When we had stronger leaders who knew when they overstepped their bounds they simply ignored their orders. Jefferson, Jackson, and the wretched Lincoln all ignored the Court and the Republic survived. Congress has the power under Article 3 Section 2 of the US Constitution to tell the Court what cases they can and cannot hear. The Warren Court started this judicial nonsense back in the 60’s and it is time to take a stand to it now, because even if Trump gets 100% of his platform passed thru Congress and some left wing hack brings a suit against it on some insane, spurious, view of the Constitution, odds are that some left wing hack on the bench will discover it in our founding document, and attempt to strike it down. The time to act on this is now.

        JFK had begun the issuance of United States Notes before Nov 22, 1963 and if I recall correctly some $20,000,000 worth had been printed. Read somewhere that his father suggested this to him before the elder Kennedy suffered a stroke. His old man said something to the effect of why borrow when the gov’t can print its own. The printing ended with JFK’s murder. The notes today are probably worth more than their face value.

        In 1964 LBJ also ended the silver coinage except for some silver washed coppers and that ended within a few years. He also ended the silver certificates that year.

        In Chicago during the mid 1990’s there was a political scandal the feds named SILVER SHOVEL. It began when a mobster in the Chicago Outfit was given the task of laundering two million dollars of old silver certificates that had belonged to the late Outfit boss Tony Accardo The man the mob guy contacted was named John Christopher and he was a federal informant. The feds used him to bring down some crooked politicians. I never did find out about what happened to the old money, but I did receive an old crisp $5 certificate in change at a bookstore. Then there is this – in 2007 several top mob bosses were convicted in a federal trial called FAMILY SECRETS. One of the mobsters, Frank Calabrese, was convicted and is now deceased. After his death the feds received information about a large stash of cash Calabrese had hidden in his home. They found it and later auctioned it off. These were old $500 and $1000 certificates and Calabrese had hundreds of them. Maybe this was part of the old Accardo stash?

    Dear Friends,

    Not much to report this week that you haven’t already heard. The House was set to consider the annual Energy and Water Appropriations bill, but between increased spending levels over last year and a poison pill amendment successfully inserted by a House Democrat, the bill went down in flames (112-305). It’s unclear whether or not the Appropriations Committee will make the necessary changes and try again. It’s probably just as likely that they give up on the rest of the individual appropriations bills and instead roll all of them into a giant package once again. I’m not sure how many times over the last five years I’ve had to write you all lamenting these massive single spending bills, but it’s far too many. It’s a sorry way to do business, but it’s the status quo / path of least resistance in DC. Hopefully it will change for the better next year.

    Cashill dedicated the book to ten CTH posters and concluded with “and especially, Sundance.” In the Acknowledgments Cashill states, “Kudos to those good souls in the blogosphere (naming CTH as one) who did the serious reporting on this case that the major media failed to do. Their reporting helped secure George Zimmerman his acquittal and make this book possible.”

    Chapter one is exclusively about the origin of CTH. I felt as if I were reading about my kinfolks. It was wonderful, and I look forward to reading about my “kinfolks” throughout the book. Thank you so much for all you have done. You have certainly made a positive impact on my life.

    This article, written by Philip Klein who is a Never Trumper and Rubio supporter, made me laugh. Klein is now realizing that Rubio is an empty suit.

      I think Klein more than anything reveals himself to be a small minded person who holds grudges far longer than is good for him.

      Rubio by supporting Trump now is keeping the pledge he signed to support the nominee. I commend him for being a GOP team player.

      When the fight is over, one should be magnanimous, gracious and professional, not bitter and personal.

        Really? Do you really think that Rubio is being magnanimous?
        More like his party is getting fully behind Trump and after the North Dakota deletes moved over to him he knew that career is going down the tubes and he had better get on the bandwagon while he still can.
        I agree with you on Klein overall though.

    Ted Cruz Negates Texas Vote At GOP Convention!!!

        Snowy, Lame Cherry is referring to the ‘roll call’ at the Republican Convention – there is a ‘process’ by which each state votes on the first ballot for the nominee – it is ordered alphabetically – I think Lame Cherry Texas will be embarrassed because they must vote for Cruz and not Trump – other states might be as well –

        “The voting method at the conventions is a “rolling roll call of the states” (which include territories). The states are called in alphabetical order (Alabama is first; Wyoming is last). The state’s spokesperson (who begins his/her speech with glowing comments about the state’s history, geography, and notable party elected officials) can either choose to announce its delegate count or pass. Once all states have either declared or passed, those states which passed are called upon again to announce their delegate count. (Generally, a decision is made beforehand that some states will pass in the first round, in order to allow a particular state – generally either the presidential or vice presidential nominee’s home state – to be the one whose delegate count pushes the candidate “over the top”, thus securing the nomination.)”

    Trump Sanders Debate

      I’m afraid Trump got snared here. I’m not sure he fully appreciates how much these people — personified by Jimmy Kimmel — hate him. The atmosphere was all loose and jokey, and this was intentional as they know Trump is basically a bonhomous gentleman and that this was the only way they could get at him. His guard was down. Unfortunately he can’t let it down — EVER. I hope he learned that it isn’t just the MSM “journalists” that are despicable and dishonest, but the entire cultural Left.

        Yeah – Kimmel was lobbing “insults” in his joking little bearded way.

        Well – the protesters holding the SOCIALIST signs – Bernie Supporters, I assume – people are not stupid. Let the socialists scream and yell…that’s about all they are good at – flapping their lips.

        Give them a shovel or a broom and they will run to their safe space.

        This country can not survive any more nonsense.

        Hopefully the majority of the people see this and vote accordingly.

        Awww…paul – appreciate your concern – however, I disagree – Trump is going to be 70 years old – he is a successful businessman – who has had to deal with all sorts of nuts – the NY mafia to name one – do you really think he did not see this as a set-up – I think he knew – he is not only business savvy – he is people savvy – he knows the liberal media and Hollywood as well – he uses them to his advantage – he is a LEADER and a MANAGER – the job of the leader/manager is not to tell people what to do but rather, to bring out the best in people and expose those who are not team players – it is typical group management of all who are part of the team as well as the competition – why do you think he calls Sanders – ‘Crazy Bernie’ – because he knows him inside and out – and Bernie is crazy – Kimmel did not fool him either – Trump has always been 3 steps ahead of the pack – he got what he needed from this game and made it ‘pay to play’ – lol – while exposing them all – read Lame Cherry’s article about the debate – it’s all in there – this ‘trap’ was set long ago – and Trump trounced the trap and called it – ‘inappropriate’ – and now, we have seen just how far Bernie Bots will go to make fools of themselves – believe me, paul – Trump knows what he is doing – he may have appeared to be a rookie in the political process, but he never was – even though it seems like he has learned much along the way – he continually exposed the fraud – even after he reached the required number of delegates – Trump has emboldened us all – to stand up and speak out against this leftist ideological takeover of our country – and we are!

            paul, all I can say is many people do not know how difficult it is to succeed in NY – the construction industry is fully controlled – the regulations and the taxes are deterrents to making a profit – Trump had to fight his way through, and that gave him the experience to deal with China – here is a man unlike other businessmen who did not stoop to illegal means to get things done or be successful – I respect that, and I respect him!

              duchess — I do understand. My father was a native New Yorker and a successful CEO in Manhattan – the leader in his industry in his time. I was conjecturing only that Trump enjoys the loose give-and-take in moments like the one with Kimmel and may have let his guard down. No none is perfect. I could be wrong of course. But the larger point is that this will continue, and the they will push the narrative that Trump says things he doesn’t mean. .

                Ah, they will never quit bashing Trump – you know that – however, it has done nothing, but to increase his popularity – BernieBots are brainwashed – they cannot even define ‘socialism’ nor do they know enough about history to understand its evil – I am concerned about the children of the future – they are being indoctrinated in the public schools – with everything from Islam to Transgenderism – the universities and colleges are no better – if we cannot help them understand now, we may save our country for 8 years only to lose it, again – when the BernieBots come of age – their immaturity and ignorance is alarming – Generation Z is worse off – they cannot function without technology – with them, it must be fast or it is no good – this is not something that just happened yesterday – it was planned long ago – to destroy the family and destroy the nation – that is why we need a strong VP – a person we can elect when Trump finishes his time – turning this country around is not going to be easy – but, turning an entire generation around will be far more difficult –

                Oh, and btw…what has Trump said he doesn’t mean – to them, everything – lol – so nothing has changed –
