    Treepers I want to thank you. Most of all you Sundance (who we suspect is the “independent analyst who wished to remain anonymous” that was with the Trump campaign on election night keeping them calm. Can’t really thank you enough for your upbeat, informed posts and comments as well as for many, many laughs. Now, let’s kick some UniParty ass!

    Thanks Sundance. What a treat! Predicted he’d wait until 0400 21 Jan 17. That’s ok, I don’t mind at all and shoulda known. Sleep well tonight, Donald. “Take two of these and call me in the morning”…seems to be the Plan Of The Day…! Also great to see NYMA in the parade! ‘Boola Boola’!

    That ‘desk’ never looked better! Hope we all get to see HIS ‘DAILY RUSHES’…!

    I know Brennan was out of a job as of 12:01 today. Did Clapper hand in his resignation too? I’ll feel our country and President Trump is safer when BOTH are gone and his people are in place!

We have received our reprieve and give all thanks and honor and glory to the One who in His Mercy gave us this reprieve to restore and rebuild this mighty nation this time restored our foundation in Almighty God in Whom was the reason she was blessed at the start. May we never forget the SOURCE OF LIFE and GOVERNMENT that is upon His Shoulders that we may prosper and grown and His Truth is marching on in the hearts of those that bear His Light, let us never hide nor be ashamed of Him in Him Whom all things are possible and onward to an American Golden Age with Him as our Captain, the Author of Life and Son of the Most High God.

    A big hug from the majestic mountains of might and of which there are many like them in the land we call America.

    May we united as one people, under One God and One flag as One people, onward to the next level of enlightenment.

    Thank you Sundance for heeding the call and remaining steadfast in your wonderful work in His Wisdom and Gift of communication in writing and humbleness and truth. Amen and Amen.

May mountains of might and strong trees who stand against harsh weather always remind us of the power and tranquility and steadfastness in our souls and let today be a day of peace in our hearts to reflect and enjoy the BEAUTY and THANKSGIVING. Tomorrow we can return back to the fight for truth and righteousness.

      Well stated Monique!

      We have graciously been given a window of both time and opportunity by our Creator.

      Now is a time to pause and reflect both God’s grace, and our stewardship of the precious gift we have received from Him going forward.

  13. And to the wolverine for serving as a symbol of the fight and stance that helped remind us of protecting the homeland!

    Wolverine’s are extremely territorial & will defend their territory against any Animal no matter of it’s size. Even Bears, Big Cats and Wolves tend to avoid confrontations with Wolverine’s as they are known & feared for their aggressiveness, fearlessness & fighting skills.

    But let us not forget to have a day of fun and play in the winter wonderland running at top speed displaying our agility and zest for life! One day of rest and utter joy!

      Hah! Reminds me of a poster in my younger son’s bedroom. It sports the picture of an ethereal appearing wolverine-like animal with the caption: My petronus is a honey badger! I take it these animals are not be trifled with.

  14. And our dear Pepe who continues to inspire and delight and bring smiles and warmth to our hearts! A cartoon but an animated fun symbol of our bond of brotherhood against the globalists throughout the world. And a constant reminder of just how silly the globalists are for thinking they can master the universe. After all, it was a plague of frogs that God sent down to Egypt to LET HIS PEOPLE GO! O does the Holy Spirit have a sense of humor and the Author of Creativity and Drama, true drama perfect in its delivery.

  15. And gratitude and thanks to the man Donald J. Trump for heeding the call and stepping into the lion’s den many many MANY times. Only a lion could do that! And thanks to his family who stood by him under threat of death and to the many who stood by him throughout his campaign. Glory be to God for exposing the wickedness in high places and using his servant and special pick for the job to lead America back to God and greatness by proclaiming God as our protector and the anointing bestowed upon Donald Trump and his wife Melania, they are onne; in His way and His timing, not Frank Sinatra, not that way, but His way: that would be God. O THE GLORY!

    “So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again!” ~ President Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States, Washington DC Presidential Inauguration, January 20, 2017

    “It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots!” ~ President Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States, Washington DC Presidential Inauguration, January 20, 2017

    To Americans: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. Your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

    Together we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again – and yes, together, WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

    Gold curtains replaced Obama’s red ones, and a new(?) statue of cowboy on horse in back shelf (Remington??). That was quick!!!! Not to mention Churchill bust back in place.

    I have also been wondering how much of all the bedding, towels, etc were replaced by Trump’s super-duper hotel staff from down the street — ALL OF IT!!!!

    Trump is a germaphobe — and even if not — EVERYTHING must go!! mattresses — ALL OF IT!!

    There was a bit of luck involved along with the hand of God and the fickle finger of fate. What we got was one small reprieve from losing it all. We must take that small gift and turn it into a movement of decent people throughout the world. We have a good thing going here and don’t want any of that marxist/islamist change we were being sold. The Dems are like a guy you just beat up. Broke his nose 2 black eyes and rib sticking out and he’s still spitting and snarling at you calling you names and cursing you to do it again…..As you slowly walk away…….I think I deserve 1 more day to absorb the victory. We took the big hill now lots of mopping up to do…….

    Hey, does anyone know who the very tall dark-haired man is during the signings in the Oval Office? There are two men are standing behind the desk – behind President Trump. I recognize “Special Counsel to the President” McGahn – but who is the other guy standing next to him? Just wondering… and I don’t mean chief of staff Reince Priebus or VP Pence, of course….

    Just curious …

      Ok – found an article that identified the tall dude handing documents to Trump for signing.

      Apparently, that’s Rob Porter, the White House Staff Secretary. Wikipedia says that Rob Porter previously served as Chief of Staff to the “President pro tempore” of the US Senate, Orrin Hatch; he’s got a JD from Harvard and an mPhil from Oxford. His father was a George H. W. Bush aide.

      Are you referring to the Secret Service guy “Todd Madison” who had been assigned to her? As President, Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary are likely still entitled to Secret Service Protection for Life. So maybe it is still the same guy.

      Yes – i like these better, also.

      Most people probably already know by now that the White House is undergoing some remodeling/security renovations – that might take another 6 months or so.

      Maybe it is a good idea that Melania and Barron stay in New York – because i think they’d all have to live in the Blair House for several months, until the most of the renovations are completed. And this give Barron a chance to finish his school year.

      After the renovations are completed, then an Interior Designer can assist with changes, especially to the Oval Office.

      What REALLY got on my nerves weren’t so much the draperies, which i didn’t like, but the atrocious colors combinations – the colors in the floral arrangements didn’t match the interior – and the furniture looked like something very cheap and too squarish – a very déclassé look for a room that needed to look elegant. I know bad design when I see it – and i’m sorry – the Obama’s seemed to have had terrible advice on decorating the Oval Office. Or perhaps they had good advice – but didn’t take it.

      • As evidenced by what MO was wearing yesterday I’d say that they have bad taste.
        Since you are Spencer’s mom, imagine getting up in the morning of the last day in the White House and you know that you are going to be on TV all day long and you also know that Melania Trump is a former model and dresses to the nines……what would you wear?
        I think she just gave up and didn’t give a darn what she looked like….her hair was just pulled back and her dress was horrid (regardless of what the fashion reporters said) and it made her look dowdy. I am no fan of hers but I’ve seen photos of her where she’s done up nicely….but yesterday she just gave up…almost as if she was saying “f-you” to everyone…..but in reality what she did was show the world what real class looks like…she actually elevated Mr and Mrs Trump.
        Glad she’s gone and hope we can forget her.
