      I just received a WSJ update that the Trump Admin is considering letting go General Michael Flynn. Is this just another false flag? Our satellite is down from a storm, and I haven’t seen any other account.

      Thank you so much for posting. This was interesting to watch. One can’t help to question if voter fraud contributed to the election of this Politician. Who in their right mind would vote for this disingenuous crook? Seriously, would you buy a used car from this guy?

      This has been my argument all along. If politicians, celebrities, and TAX-PAYING “activists” (a minority) really believe in open borders, they need to prove it by declaring their own homes, cars, boats, and airplanes sanctuary properties open to all illegals and “refugees,” Mexican, Muslim, or otherwise. All locks should be removed from gates and doors, and keys to engines should be placed in open-view. In addition, they should agree to financially support, educate, feed, clothe, and provide medical care to, anyone and everyone who shows up to live in their structures, use their boats and cars, and fly their planes. They should also willingly accept responsibility for any damages caused by those they have taken it (just as the sponsors of legal immigrants do). It isn’t fair for them to expect tax payers in general (who oppose open borders) to subsidize their virtue signaling. Let them pay for it themselves. Only when they do this will I believe they actually believe in open borders and freebies for illegals.

      It’s so easy to fake generosity and benevolence when someone else is paying for it and suffering the consequences. If these do-gooders were for real, they’d walk the walk.

      I hope someone challenges them at the Grammys to do just this: Put “SANCTUARY” signs on their houses, apartments, condos, vacation homes, cars, boats, and airplanes, and then make it so.

      • GREAT idea!!! I am close to Big D and may do this exact thing…call the media to cover the signs that I make.

        I’ve decided that unless and until the illegals are removed, the fruits of my labor simply support illegals and I am THEREFORE A SLAVE.

        So…I refuse to lift a finger. I’m taking a “wait and sit on it” approach – just like the Muslims and illegal aliens and gimmedats.

        Now I have time to make signs and create all sorts of mischief. Win, win!

        That would be awesome. Their heads really would explode trying to explain why they won’t do it. I’d also add that none of these refugees/illegals can be vetted by the people taking them in. It’s a lottery. If you get a good person, then good for you. If you get a murderer, oh well. Also, if these illegals commit a crime, the activist can be charged as an accomplice to said crime.

    OK – Tree House needs to do a “Call to Arms” — these Leftists are planning to take over all the GOP Town Hall meetings and cause as much ruckus as they can so the Media gets to report how much the “people” hate President Trump. I’ve seen 2 of these and you can bet they plan to take this Nationwide. The call themselves the “new Tea Party”.

    The majority of folks ignore these Town Halls – you have to really pay attention to even know when they are being held. You can take it to the bank that these Marxist Losers are “paying attention”.
    Get the word out for everyone to start attending the Town Halls and fill up the room early. It’s the only way to stop them.

    It doesn’t matter whether you like your CongressCritter or not — it’s NOT about the CongressCritter — the entire plan is an attempt to make ‘news’ against President Trump.

    Have just read a lengthy and verbose political hit piece by “noted” ex-British diplomat Alastair Crooke (now there is a Fraudian slip of a name if one has ever seen one).

    This poor deluded “diplomat” lugubriously cites clinical psycho-babble using every psycho-linguistic tool available in the PDR.

    Only Mr. Crooke’s last sentence comes anywhere close to the actual truth.

    Excellent advice, Mr. Crooke, enjoy the ride. Now, how about some English lessons in the proper use of its, it’s, and its’? We’ll talk about code-breaking and ciphers at a later date. dummy

    Just had a back and forth with a friend about a documentary on Netflix about concerning sexual assaults on campuses. It was apparently done by 2 girls who say they were victims and essentially saying the opposite of what I understand the tribunals created on campuses are doing. My understanding is that the accusers civil right are being violate because of lack of due process, these girls are saying the opposite is happening, that the assaults are being covered up and the victims are being silenced.

    I do not have Netflix. Does anyone have any info?

    I have seen a lot of fake assaults exposed like the “Rolling Stone” article which has made me question every story like this. The only thing I can think is, that if something is covered up, it may be the demographic of the perpetrators. Maybe they are Muslin? I hate to be jumping to conclusions but I have wonder why we haven’t heard more problems here seeing how bad it is in Europe. Does anyone have any knowledge about the validity of this documentary?

      Interesting that he says Trump will not be able to defeat media. Based on current strategy, I would have to agree. Trump has not declared war on the media. He’s engaged in skirmishes, but he has not committed himself to their destruction. In my opinion, he must do so.

    An Alleged Muslim Spy Ring – Is This Why Rex Tillerson Cleaned House?/

    by Tyler Durden
    Feb 12, 2017 11:50 AM/

    Submitted by Duan via Free Market Shooter blog,/

    “Shortly after Trump took office, and before Rex Tillerson was even confirmed as Secretary of State, a slew of State Department officials were removed from their positions (or were forced to resign) as part of an effort to “clean house” at the State Department. The whole affair was haphazardly covered by the media, especially by Jeff Bezos’s blog, which insinuated that the departures were “an ongoing mass exodus of senior Foreign Service officers who don’t want to stick around for the Trump era.”

    Further analysis revealed that the officials were actually removed from their positions shortly after Tillerson visited the State Department office in Foggy Bottom prior to his confirmation:

    “Any implication that that these four people quit is wrong,” one senior State Department official said. “These people are loyal to the secretary, the President and to the State Department. There is just not any attempt here to dis the President. People are not quitting and running away in disgust. This is the White House cleaning house.”

    And, just a few weeks after the fact, it appears we know why Tillerson was so quick to purge existing staffers: he just didn’t trust them. It also appears his mistrust was more than justified.

    (fast forward here/ but read the whole article/ UNREAL)

    So, in case you’ve gotten lost, here’s a recap of the timeline of events:

    Jan 20 – Trump takes office, and DoD officials are expecting him to be more willing to approve dangerous missions
    Jan 26 – Rex Tillerson visits State Department headquarters prior to his confirmation, and either terminates or forces the resignation of many existing State Department personnel
    Jan 29 – The botched Yemen raid is executed, resulting in the death of Navy SEAL Owens
    Feb 1 – Rex Tillerson is confirmed by President Trump as Secretary of State
    Feb 2 – The Awan brothers are terminated on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission

    As Mad World News previously stated,

    “…it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to connect the dots. The firing of the Awan brothers is linked to the Yemen raid where al-Qaeda knew we were coming, and it tragically ended with Navy SEAL Owens being killed in action.”

    The mainstream media seemed far more interested in obfuscating the details regarding the Tillerson terminations than they were in covering what could be one of the most dangerous intelligence leaks in years, of which there has been but a peep out of any major news outlet. Captain Joseph R. John (Navy-Ret.) has stated that he believes the Muslim Brotherhood “fifth column” has “infiltrated U.S. Government,” and if he is correct, the Awan brothers could very well be a part of this infiltration.

    Yet, there as been but a peep of information about the Awan brothers from nearly all major news outlets. Are they in jail? What are they accused of? Does the Trump administration suspect them of leaking details about military operations to terrorist organizations? And most importantly, if so, did these three men directly or indirectly contribute to the death of Owens during the Yemen raid?

    One thing is for certain – as Politico seemed to take delight in stating, “Trying to nail down who the leakers are is like trying to count the cockroaches under the couch.” However, it seems most of the “leaks” are coming from Obama holdovers. Which makes Tillerson’s “cleaning house” look like not just the correct move, it leaves you wondering if he did enough cleaning house.

    Truman is great here!!!!!!
    After Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line, President Donald Trump quickly tweeted his disapprova.

    Before Twitter was available, President Harry Truman backed his daughter the old-fashioned way. Truman sent an angry letter to a Washington Post music critic who wrote a less than favorable review of one of Margaret Truman’s concerts.
    In response to Washington Post Music Critic Paul Hume’s December 6, 1950, review of Margaret Truman’s singing performance at Constitution Hall, stating,

    “Miss Truman is a unique American phenomenon with a pleasant voice of little size and fair quality (she) cannot sing very well is flat a good deal of the time more last night than at any time we have heard her in past years has not improved in the years we have heard her (and) still cannot sing with anything approaching professional finish.”

    President Truman responded with the following letter to Hume:

    Dec. 6, 1950

    Mr. Hume:

    I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an “eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.”

    It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

    Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below

    Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.

        Not that everything on the internet is true. But I would be careful with this one. I’ll leave it to others if someone wants to pursue this more with a virtual machine session, and see if we should try to shut it down.

    The alliance of Graham, Franken, corrupt Intel agencies, WSJ and Fox gunning for Flynn’s head.
    Supposedly Preibus running the investigation, Pence “very upset”, and Bannon and Jared not fully backing Flynn.

    The most dangerous moment in Trump’s presidency. This is about nothing. Completely a nothing story. Trump has four or five pipelines into Russia since last year. All of them are useful for him.
    Flynn is key to stability of his foreign policy. Irreplaceable cog in reforming the Intel Agencies.

    And who created the phony Russian reports of pissing on hotel beds, prostitutes, Putin rigging the election, Russians hacking everyone? Intel agencies.

    This is deep and huge. If Trump caves on Flynn over nothing, they have him. His foreign policy won’t be one bit different than Bush-Obama. TRILLIONS, folks.

    Has nothing to do with whatever Flynn and the Russian ambassador spoke about.

    This is the neocons and Libs destroying the one and only military man who brought in all the other generals after he campaigned from the getgo. Flynn went to Trump in early 2016 or sooner. He warned him of what was coming from where.
