      Yes. Overwhelming. Disheartening. Frightening even. I am looking forward to what President Trump has to share with us ‘deplorables’ at this upcoming rally in Florida. Hope my heart lasts that long.

      Exactly what I was posting. Yes, worse than the campaign! A) I felt we could do something about it. B) It was corruption I could imagine. What has been revealed for all to see is so much more than I realized. I, too, feel overwhelmed by the reality of it all.

          The thing is, they are kind of stuck I think. They DO NOT want the “evidence” to come out, because they’d probably be laughed off the planet. If the “evidence” was any good, they certainly would have leaked it by now. They have no problem with leaking things.

          Seems they wanted to create a media shit storm but can’t really follow through with it, because it traps them if they do.

          At the same time, the “deep state” is on everyone’s mind now – and they don’t like sunlight. They are pushing more and more people across the spectrum into supporting Trump or at least condemning them.

        It is maddening, isn’t it. They refuse to give Trump the information he needs, because he’s a “national security risk” – by their own authority, without any over-site. They release it to the press illegally, which causes a – national security risk. But at the same time, they don’t release any actual; evidence for anyone to see. My common sense dictates it’s because the evidence must be shabby and threadbare.

        I believe TRUMP had a pretty good idea of what he was/is now up against. I imagine it was an entertaining and interesting discussion in which somebody suggested “Drain the Swamp” as a description of what was necessary. Fortunately, he agreed to use the phrase…
        Now we know what Swamp actually means, and should not be too suprised by its extent: it has had decades to accumulate dead organic material and its many feeders, and draining it is exposing its true ugliness.
        We know TRUMP gathered information long before he announced his candidacy…and even if he was only aware of the many iceburg tips, he knows where to look, and it seems to me for the most part his Cabinet members are confident and unafraid, as is he.

          Gorka made a comment that trump hired him a couple YEARS before he announced to give him advice. Trump takes it seriously despite his off the cuff remarks. This rally, really, I see these now as Trump’s board meetings with the team owners. He is the CEO but the people are in charge. We need each other so lets shoot the sh@t a bit, get fired up, and carry on deplorables!

    I think about all of the movies where machines take over and rule the humans that created them when I think of how the government is so much more massive, with tentacles everywhere and almost absolute power, that I ever before realized. The NSA and all the rest were created by representatives of We the People and then it became the monster that has taken a life of its own and empowered itself over We the People.

    I am completely surprised at the depth of corruption and the behemoth that the Deep State has become. They are acting as the head of gov rather than our own elected President. Completely out of control. Many of the readers and Sundance are not surprised but I am, despite reading here for so long. I truly had no idea and am overwhelmed by what has been revealed for all to see.

    I have to admit that I did not realize the depth of evil that has taken over this country. I knew we had crooked politicians I just did not realize how much pure evil was just below the surface. I have to believe it is God’s will that it is being exposed. I thank Sundance and CTH for the truth, this is the only place I do trust the information I read.. For those of us that believe that President Trump is God’s (Isaiah 45 – Cyrus) candidate, I would like to suggest a day of prayer. Every top of the hour on Friday let’s say a prayer for President Trump, his family and his team.

  32. I know it’s from a movie, but I sure wish we as a country could do if we were only able to appeal to the better angels of our nature. Perhaps that time is irrevocably lost. Perhaps it never existed. But my heart breaks to see the country tearing itself apart, and I am genuinely concerned about our future. Glad I’m in my early sixties and don’t have the futures of children and grandchildren to worry about.

    I ‘ve just heard John Bachelor being questioned in his radio program by one of his hosts if some of their friends should be chosen/apply for some political appointment related to Asian politics. I dont remember the details but what I very distinctly heard John answered was: “no, he is ok where he is because the longevity of this administration is in question”. I was flabbergasted that he could say such an alarming thing so publicly , o non chalantly like if it is vox populi that Trump will go soon. Does anybody have an opinion about this? I mean, a reassuring opinion better still. I always considered John Bachelor a serious and restrained man.

    I’ve been thinking (dangerous pasttime for me, I know) and this has been mentioned by Treepers whose knowledge and smarts dwarfs mine, that either Trump planned this (to expose the deep state) or is taking advantage of the IC move. Think about it: Now, Trump can totally and completely clean house in the intelligence communities and he has an “excuse” to get rid of the whole lot of them. He can just say that we have to root out the traitors and leakers and these people are criminals. Also, how many people that aren’t in to politics who would think the “deep state” is tinfoil conspiracy theory are now seeing that it is real. I wish I could have stated this more eloquently and clearly (perhaps one of you Treepers can do that for me). All I know is I believe that President Trump is going to drain the whole freaking swamp. I truly believe that God is using Mr. Trump to expose these evil, corrupt b@sta@rds. And if they try impeachment, it is on, D.C. here I come. And I’m sure I’ll have millions of my friends with me.

However, if they knew the Bible they’d tremble if they even demoted Trump to flawed Samson, as they may have captured Samson but then he brought everything down on their own heads.

    Reddit has uncovered pedophile busts where Biden and Obama hang out…auto shows in Detroit,, and, the big bragging child pedophile traffickers, the Clintons:

    The left knows very well about the pedophile ring and is covering up and diverting attention with all of this chatter. Kind of hard for Sessions to stay focused on the pedophiles when Obama is springing his months-long Trump trap.

    Human trafficking aside, that’s the Clinton Foundation’s M.O.
    Find corporate donors → collect $$ → hold conference/PR event to announce the “partnership” → establish some vague ‘commitment to action’ → publish execuspeak report on the company + CF’s mercurial goals → follow up with yearly reports until the money’s gone.
    Rinse, repeat until desired graft is achieved.

    Over at HillaryIs44.org, a fav poster of mine wrote this:

    February 15, 2017 at 5:24 pm
    Admin: I have it on good reliable authority that Trump has the highest regard for General Flynn, believes he did nothing wrong, and wanted him to stay on. So we can forget about that humiliation of a president meme that WashPo is peddling.

    This is what I am told:

    On the day in question, the Russian Ambassador called General Flynn to discuss the deteriorating situation Eastern Europe, wherein Obama, who was still president at that point, after eight years of doing nothing, began acting irrationally, moving troops to the border, whereupon Putin felt threatened and moved in his weapons. The purpose of the call was to discuss that dangeroussituation, and to find out whether the incoming administration would continue Obama’s mindless sociopathic march toward World War III.

    Was the subject of sanctions discussed? No. It was not discussed, it was deflected. The statement from Flynn was that with the new administration, everything is on the table. General Flynn had between thirty and forty calls that day, and the situation was very serious. Thus he answered Pence truthfully when he said the subject of sanctions was not discussed.

    Or, in the vernacular, other than that Mrs. Lincoln, other than impending nuclear war, how was the play?

    Now Pense could have done what a skilled politician would have done when asked that question by the press. He would have finessed it by saying received a summary, it was not discussed it was reflected, move on, nothing to see here.

    Instead Pence got holier than thou, acted like he was lied to, and that is when the press saw blood and moved in for the kill.

    I am told that while Pence’s resume is magnificent as far it goes, alpha dog leadership is not in his bag of tricks. He always prefers the #2 position and is tight with the RINO establishment that opposes Trump. He is tight with Ryan and Preibus.

    Thus the pertinent question is how will Pence react when it get too hot in the kitchen?
