    IMO President Trump has strategically decided to expose early on the hyproceacy and deception of the globalists.

    Perhaps he is already setting the 2018 stage blowout. Now it is done or die for the globalists.

    Too bad for them. They are taking on the lion.

    A thought for the military minds here to play with –
    “U.S. should expand missile defense due to North Korea, Iran: lawmaker” http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-congress-missiles-idUSKBN15L2CY
    The “lawmaker” saying this is Max Thornberry.

    FTA – “…Jim Mattis, Trump’s defense secretary, told South Korea last week that Washington and Seoul would stand “shoulder-to-shoulder” to face the threat from North Korea.

    Both South Korea and the United States have recommitted to plans to deploy an $800 million advanced missile defense system in South Korea later this year….”

    Give our allies missile defense, bring our soldiers home to protect us here?

      The THAAD missile system to be installed in South Korea threatens China and Russia because its missiles used to shoot down N,K. missiles could easily be missiles to attack China or Russia.

      S400 Russian and Chinese missile defenses will be positioned to nullify the THAAD missiles. They have no choice. They can’t wait to see missiles flying are actually going into North Korea and not into China’s petroleum sector in Heilongjiang Province or into Russia’s Far East oil, gas and crucial port areas.

      Though missile defense systems sound defensive they use cruise missiles and those missiles are nuke-capable. A Tomahawk missile in the air is a mortal threat, and China and Russia have legitimate concerns about the US installing these in So. Korea.

      Similar concerns about the Aegis-style missile defenses in Romania and Poland. These upset the viability of nuclear defenses. Upsetting the balance of strategic nuclear deterrence is a real global stability issue.

        Thanks. Found this from World Socialist Web Site (yup, that it what it is called).

        “US defence secretary backs Japan, threatens war against China over disputed islets” https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/02/06/matt-f06.html

        FTA – (Mattis said) “What we have to do is exhaust all efforts, diplomatic efforts, to try to resolve this (Japan/China) properly, maintaining open lines of communication. At this time, we do not see any need for dramatic military moves.”

        Perhaps these poor socialists need to learn to speak U.S. Marine American? what a bunch of dummies…

    Earlier today Kelm wrote a good post on the propaganda that the left is pushing. During lunch I read an article someone had posted on FB – “Intolerant Liberals”. It is far from pro-Trump, but it certainly looked that way from the thumbnail.

    That article is saying exactly the sort of things all my Democrat and Leftist ‘friends’ actually think. Reading it after reading Kelm’s post gave me insight into how the propaganda is spread. It sounds so reasonable and well thought out and if anyone didn’t agree with everything in it you were a bad person. The leaps of logic in the article were amazing. So were the absolute lies that have been repeated so often that the left take them as truth.

    If Betsy DeVos can’t make it through Senate Confirmation because of the leftist arguments that she has no experience with public school systems, then Pres. Trump should nominate Eva Moskowitz. She definitely has public school experience and is a no holds bar advocate for children in New York City. So the leftists couldn’t use that lame excuse. I am kind of surprised Trump did not nominate her from the get-go. Of course, Ms. Moskowitz’s nomination would set the teacher’s unions on fire.

    Please don’t take this the wrong way, I absolutely love President Trump, campaigned hard here in Ohio and attended the Inauguration. But, honestly, the SNL skit of Sean Spicer was the, by far, funniest thing I have ever seen on that show. I don’t know how to post videos, and maybe other posters would be offended, but it was seriously hysterical.

    Eric Holder’s Airbnb Runs Controversial #WeAccept Multiculturalism Ad/

    JEROME HUDSON 6 Feb 2017/

    “The tens of millions of Americans watching Super Bowl LI Sunday night were treated to a politically-charged advertisement from home-sharing company Airbnb, which launched its #WeAccept ad campaign with a 30-second spot highlighting diversity and multiculturalism.
    “No matter who you are, where you’re from, who you love, or who you worship, you deserve to belong,” Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky wrote on Sunday with a link to the #WeAccept campaign, which shows the faces of people of various ages, races, and religions along with the inspiring message.

    Former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder — who was hired by Airbnb last July “to help craft a world-class anti-discrimination policy” — also tweeted about the #WeAccept campaign.

    In his role at the $30 billion home-sharing company, Holder is crafting the company’s anti-discrimination and housing policy, according to Chesky.

    Airbnb users received an email on Monday morning detailing the company’s intentions to provide housing for 100,000 people over the next five years, including refugees.”


    PREDICTION/ Holder’s AirBnb Policies = DISASTER/

    America is not a flop house, and Holder is a dangerous ‘progressive’ with a chip on his shoulder.

    So many dangerous individuals planted in high places, over decades. The long game that was supposed to have ended in checkmate with Clinton vs. Bush.

    Trump Is Facing More Than 50 Lawsuits Just Two Weeks Into His Presidency http://www.forbes.com/sites/niallmccarthy/2017/02/06/trump-is-facing-more-than-50-lawsuits-just-two-weeks-into-his-presidency-infographic/#70037a707317

    “lawsuits against Trump’s travel ban were filed in 17 different states by doctors, professors, students, refugees and Iraqis who worked together with the U.S. military. All in all, 40 lawsuits were brought against the travel ban, nine were related to civil rights and four were about general immigration. Trump also faces a further lawsuit about financial conflicts of interest and federal funds to sanctuary cities.”

    We are making the alt-left spend all their time and money on attorneys. Quick, more Executive Orders please. Throw in a few more Senate Cabinet Confirmation battles, Freedom Caucus in the House let’s make some noise! Gotta keep those little kids in the media busy, yes?

    Records: Soros Fund Execs Funded Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John McCain, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham in 2016/

    by MATTHEW BOYLE 6 Feb 2017Washington, D.C. 244/

    “Employees of a hedge fund founded by the king of the Institutional Left, billionaire and Democratic Party mega-donor George Soros, donated tens of thousands of dollars to top Republicans who fought against President Donald Trump in 2016, donation records compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show.

    But more importantly, perhaps, than the unsurprising giant lump sums of cash funneled into Democratic Party and Clinton coffers is the revelation thanks to the Center for Responsive Politics that employees of the Soros firm—now run by his son Robert Soros—pumped tens of thousands of dollars into the campaigns of top anti-Trump Republicans over the course of 2016.”/

    Got the following from Marco Rubio

    Dear Mr. Lepore,

    Thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts regarding Rex Tillerson, who President Donald Trump nominated to be secretary of state. Understanding your views helps me better represent Florida in the United States Senate, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

    Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution states the president “shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States[.]” Like other previous U.S. presidents, President Trump will carry out this responsibility throughout his time in office. He will fill thousands of positions in the federal government, and some of these nominations will require confirmation by the Senate.

    As a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, I have the responsibility to evaluate the president’s nominees for high-level positions at the Department of State. I have no doubts about Mr. Tillerson’s qualifications and patriotism. He has an impressive record of leadership and the proven ability to manage a large and complex organization. What I focused on from the beginning is whether as secretary of state he will make the defense of liberty, democracy and human rights a priority.

    While I have reservations about Mr. Tillerson’s positions on certain issues, I appreciated his acknowledgement of Russia’s illegal invasion of Crimea, and his support for providing defensive weapons to Ukraine. In considering and evaluating Mr. Tillerson’s nomination, I must balance my reservations with his extensive experience and success in international commerce, and my belief that the president is entitled to significant deference when it comes to his choices for the cabinet. In the days ahead, I will be working to hold Mr. Tillerson fully accountable to the commitments he made during his nomination hearing. It is my hope that Mr. Tillerson will work to advance our nation’s values and moral principles.

                 It is an honor and a privilege to serve you as your United States Senator. I will keep your thoughts in mind as I consider these issues and continue working to ensure America remains a safe and prosperous nation.

      Except, Mr. Tillerson is not going to provide “defensive weapons” to any country or terrorist organization whenever he feels like it. He is not President.

      These days are over, Lil Marco. Tell Soros you failed.
