    Very glad Spicer is doing Skype questions….

    Today I heard one of the local elites ask about DJT’s actions which DJT already explained yesterday… (Asking something like ” Is this as far as actions go against IRAN………….”

    This elite press core is so stupid, most any of us (whom followed CTH for awhile) could ask more intelligent questions ……….

      I love how the guy from Alabama slapped them all in the face with his comment about the reporters living in the DC bubble. His question was also exciting because Sean shared that more immigration reform will be taking place in a week or two. Smart not to tackle any of it right now with Sessions not yet appointed.Once that occurs next week, the real fireworks will be unleashed.

      You think the riots were bad these past 2 weeks, there may not be enough popcorn for what we will see in a week or two. SD was absolutely right about us having to be patient and understand the long game.

      Lurker99,
      I’ve thought along the same lines that we could ask far better questions, especially when we seem to be more informed than they are.

      In addition, a few days ago as I was walking past the tv I thought, aw, bloody heck, I could give a more informed answer than the pundit that was on, after a pause I realized I could’ve done better than all three of them. I then had a wishful thought, if small time journalists could get in the press room why couldn’t we small timers get on tv? I would think the ratings would be good having someone like us once a week to straighten these loony pundits out. America would love to see their representation giving it to the old boys and holding our own.

      Just a thought and a dream with a bit of wishful thinking.

You’ll be surprised at how hard it actually is! But it really good practice a learning how to formulate a complex question on the fly!!!

      It is important that while it is easy, and fun, to call them stupid, these people are anything but stupid. Their questions and methods are carefully crafted with the end goal in mind of destroying this country and bringing about complete globalist control.
      They badger Sean about certain things under the facade that they are “just trying to get the facts” when what they are really doing is attempting to get him to make a yes or no comment to a question that is designed, by nature, to be used against the President in the future.
      “event: Jesus walks on water. Headlines next day: Jesus can’t swim!”. It is an old joke, but the truth behind it is the evil of the news media. They will “edit” video/audio to fit their narrative, and are professionals when it comes to twisting words around. Most of these so-called “journalists” that they allow into the white house are sociopaths at best.

      They are not media, they are propagandists. They are paid just like the anarchist protesters that destroy property and steal our free speech rights. The democrats own both groups. If you know any demos in your neighborhood, shove this stuff right back in their faces when you talk to them. Ask them if they like being associated with liars and thieves?

    • Correct, but then again there is only so much he can do. I am sure he wanted to laugh, but then scream at the same time (I know I did) for that very question. There is so much going on so much this meeting./press conference gave in such a short amount of time. Why would they ask a question like that, I bet you wanted to scream at them as well. I also agree I love that they are doing SYPE questions, it proves that they do want to be transparent, that they DO want the American public to not just, well, be in the know, but to give so many a chance and not just the big leagues. It was such a refreshing conference he did go all around the room in answering questions from the back of the room to sidelines and much was indeed covered, but there is a better decorum and seems to be some respect growing there, wow, so refreshing,
      Thank you Sundance for sharing so that I was able to witness this. I am home sick today and am actually able to read all my emails and of course come to you as much as I can. You have helped me so much in these trying times, I have a daughter that goes to Columbia University and she is just so mad at me for supporting this administration-this split between me and her is ever so hurtful, so you help me in convincing me that I am not wrong in my unending support that I have for our President Trump. Even though I could never convince my daughter (I guess I’ll have to wait until she is 40 years old right?) You have convinced me and give me my daily affirmations, Thank you again Sundance and thank you friends that post your comments after each and every blog that is here ! I read and appreciate them all!

        Clearmorning7,
        I hope you feel real better soon and the weekend will help in your recovery.

        As a daughter, I didn’t get along with my Mom when I was a young adult. We clashed on more than the a few important issues. Heck, we didn’t get along in my late teens either. And then I grew up, and low and behold, I found my Mom to be right in most cases. It took a bit of time, but my Mom and I grew very close. We talked all the time and helped each other too. She became the person I looked to for advice on so many important things and even the trivial.

        Now it’s hard for me to understand where we went wrong and why with how we had gotten along so well later in life. We made a great team and the love and respect for my Mom was off the charts, still is.

        I pray the same will happen with you and your daughter. Please don’t give up, and know it hurts your daughter as well even though she may not admit it to you. I carried a deep emptiness when I was separated from my Mom, and a lot of hurt. So of course I blamed her. I don’t now, it was both of us and mostly me.

        Now that I am a Mother, I know the pain I put my Mom through, the same pain you are feeling right now. I am ever so sorry for both of you. It’s not right and it’s not fair, especially with all you have done for your girl throughout all of her years and all you have sacrificed to get her where she is. I’m sure you’re more than likely paying for her education. I paid for my own, but then I didn’t go to Columbus or any university close to that.

        Anyways, have faith you two will come back and become stronger than ever. She still needs some growing up to do, and all you can do is be patient and let her know the door is always open for her. I pray that you two will have the relationship my Mom and I eventually had. I will keep you on my prayers for as long as it takes.

        Stay strong, get well, have faith it will all work out, and know you are loved,

        Ma’iingankwe

        You are not wrong in your support for Pres. Trump, and we are all in that basket of Deplorables with you! Sometimes people have to get into the real world to realize that liberal policies don’t work. It helps if they pay quarterly taxes instead of having them deducted from a paycheck. It also helps to own a business. I think the immigration issue is a little trickier for that generation because they grew up in a “multicultural” society wth no realization of the changes it was wreaking on our culture.

        This is too extreme, but just a thought: Either tell her you will no longer lock your doors (home, car, etc.) or tell her you no longer want her to lock hers (I know, impossible to tell her that!). Just open your arms and let everyone in. You have taught her to have boundaries, and a country has to have them as well.

        Hang in there!

          They are now celebrating on Twit and elsewhere that they succeeded through all of their hard work etc.

        Congress should only be back in DC for a couple of weeks twice a year.

        Th rest of the year they must legally be in their districts or states available to their constituents.

        Our elected federal officials and their families should live with us.

        Their kids should go to school with ours.

        Their wives should grocery shop with ours at the local Safeway.

        No more big, fancy, gated gated homes in DC with just a few trips back to their “home” states.

        They should have a very, small CHEAP apartment somewhere in DC.

        They can stay there temporarily when Congress is briefly, very briefly in session.

        Then they will hustle right back to their families and us.

      Just more neo-con BS. Maybe a history lesson and a better understanding of current international politics would help.

      The default for humanity was always very collectivist. That changed when the British introduced classical liberalism to the world which spread throughout the Anglosphere. History has shown that the rest of the world, including Continental Europe, is a collectivist and fascist nightmare waiting to happen.

      Classical liberals decided many decades ago to implement a pro-active foreign policy whereby hostile foreign regimes would be prevented from becoming long-term threats by seeking out the best strategic alliances that would ultimately deliver the best peaceful and stable outcomes.

      Costly world wars were avoided by preventing fascist and collectivist regimes from building power and influence. This was the neo-con strategy. It worked.

      Then the policy changed.

      People with an idealistic view of the world took control and started deposing regimes. It was a complete reversal of policy supposedly by the same people. Wrong.

      So who were these people? Neo-liberals, of course. But people like to jumble everything up under the banner of American Interventionism. If you seriously cannot comprehend the difference between neo-con and neo-liberal policy then you shouldn’t be commentating on world affairs.

      FYI, everyone who is against Assad is a neo-liberal. Everyone pro-Assad is a neo-con.

      Neo-cons: Reagan, Kissinger, Trump, Putin.
      Neo-liberals: G W Bush, H Clinton, McCain, Rubio.

      And the fact that Putin is a neo-con is rather significant. Russia and many Eastern European nations have essentially defected to our side which, if true, would arguably be the biggest and most important geo-political ideological switch in human history especially given that the collectivist mob once again is rising.

    I think Spicer gets quite a bit covered by the way he speaks so quickly. He also moves pretty fast from one question to another, so more can get theirs in. At least that is how I see it.

    I sure didn’t appreciate the cackling by the hens when the radio man thanked Spicer and mentioned the bubble the main journalists live in. He spoke the truth, I guess they still feel they’ve far better than us lowly peasants.

    However, I did like the camera showing who was asking questions. Now all they need are signs of who they work for, or for Spicer to mention their affiliation. I have no idea who Linda or Sarah works for, but at least I have a face to go with for now.

    The only issue that I had with this press briefing is that Sean did not answer the question as to why work permits are being given to illegals…that was part 2 of the last Skype questioner…does anyone know what the status on this is, please?

    Happy again! Feeling safe. Thank you, Mr. Press Secretary Spicer. Well done, Sir!

    May I suggest the use of, “Asked and Answered” for the stubborn?

    (There is some satisfaction watching those squirming in attitude still, it shows cognitive thinking, yes? Still testing the waters. LOL! )

    Milo Yiannopoulos, the conservative provocateur and Breitbart News columnist, said he was going to attend the White House press briefing on Friday. I couldn’t see him in any of the shots of the press. Maybe he was in back.
