        Don’t like her representation at UN so far either. After POTUS said we could have a one state solution for Israel, she publicly states we are committed to a two state solution.

        I’m not a South Carolinian but I’ve done a lot of business there and known many people. I don’t know that I agree with you about Haley not representing them. They consistently vote for lousy politicians who prove to be not what they profess to be. Of course Lindsey Graham is the best example, but along with him and Haley you have people like Trey Gowdy who has proved himself to be GOPe. It appears to be much like Arizona voters. So, based on who they elect it appears that she does fit well with what they choose. What appears to be needed there is for more people to wake up and walk away from those kinds of politicians.


        • Marygrace Powers says:

          Also, there is the “FULL MISSISSIPPI” tactic/
          as outlined brilliantly by Sundance/

          The ‘choosing’ is done behind close doors by the entrenched DEEP STATE
          Uniparty unbeknownst to the voters/ They go to great lengths to keep
          OUTSIDERS OUT/

          “When little known Chris McDaniel beat entrenched republican senator Thad Cochran in the first Mississippi primary of 2014 his successful campaign triggered a series of events that became known simply as “Mississippi ’14“.

          “In July of 2014 – the entrenched DC republican elite developed a plan to destroy McDaniel before the run-off primary. They decided to call McDaniel a racist, pay for print and broadcast attack ads, request help from black Mississippi pastors, and pay Democrats, preachers and voters to vote in the run-off election. Republicans in DC attacking a republican outsider using every dirty trick at their disposal.

          Their Machiavellian plan worked. In the run-off Chris McDaniel again beat Thad Cochran with republican voters, but the paid-to-vote Democrats lifted Cochran back onto the throne in the elite Republican Chamber.”

          Against the desperation they feel with a South Carolina victory for Donald Trump, followed by a Nevada victory for Donald Trump, and with the looming Super-Tuesday races mere hours away, the DC Republican team have re-enlisted the exact same players to roll out a similar nuclear attack approach against the ‘outsider republican’.

    A number of years ago, the EPA declared that CO2 was a pollutant. That decision went all the way to the supreme court, not to argue that CO2 was not a pollutant, but that the EPA didn’t have the authority to decare CO2 as a pollutant, and, therefore, be able to control it. The EPA won.

    So, when the new leadership of the EPA comes into control, the EPA can declare that CO2 is not a pollutant, and, I think, a whole raft of federal regulations can be done away with almost immediately. Lots of money saved here!

      You can do variations like “Tillerson fires 7th” if you want.

      It’s out there. The tv news is too busy with the “poor scared immigrants” who should not have broken the law, and then would not be scared.

      The tv news will get around to it soon enough, as soon as they can line up a sob story or two.

    I’d like to see President Trump order a couple of U.S. Navy jets to buzz that Russian spy ship just off the east coast. They should fly at supersonic speed causing simultaneous sonic booms that would rattle the sailors out of their bunks.

      “The Viktor Leonov was spotted approximately 65 nautical miles northeast of Norfolk, Va., in international waters heading south, a U.S. official told Fox News. The U.S. territorial line extends 12 miles from the coast.

      The Russian spy ship likely was returning to the Caribbean and Havana Harbor, according to the official…”

        With all the communication of top secret and classified material being on offer to various reporters, probably on unsecure smart-telephones and therefore also via unsecure computers…

        Could getting within 30 miles help them pick up all that more easily and faster?

        Another reason why the MSM are actually traitors and seditionists themselves.

          The United States and Russia have never been at war with each other; actually we have been allies. Russian loss of life in WWII is estimated at 20,000,000! More than any other country.


          We have strong relations with Germany and Japan, yet; we were at war with them. The Japanese attacked “US” (Pearl Harbor) killed innocent civilians, The Germans, (see above link) weren’t firing rubber bullets at our soldiers!

          The Russians are the bogey man under the bed of the fools who believe MSM.

          MSM is trying to convince the American public to pick a fight with a Grizzly bear…

          News flash!!! They (MSM) picked one with a lion and they have been ripped to ribbons!

          Who do you want to back you in a fight??? A lying jackal or a Lion

            • Blade says:

              Yes they were. That is, they were until Germany took them out of the war by facilitating the return of Lenin to Moscow via the hapless Europeans who were hosting him during his exile years ( however to be perfectly accurate, Russia was in World War I, but Communist controlled Russia as part of the USSR was in World War II ). This act changed world history as it meant Germany could now emerge victorious in World War I or at a minimum maintain the perpetual stalemate with France/England, meanwhile Lenin and Stalin could now safely set about conquering the largest country on Earth and begin expanding everywhere else.

              When you really step back and zoom out, we find Germany by accident and by design at the center of much of the world’s carnage. By accident they spawned both Marx and Engels who wrote the Idiots Guide to class warfare, but by design they unleashed the Marxist revolutionary Lenin back into Russia to implement it. Later on, by accident they let a wimpy little Austrian socialist slip in as a corporal into their Army, but that’s another story.

              I’m not Russian but imagine if you were and woke up one day and developed a nationalistic sense of pride, and realized hey, France invaded “us”, Nazi Germany invaded “us”, Germany purposefully helped Lenin return and hook up with Stalin and Trotsky unleashing civil war and the ensuing purges and famines during endless totalitarian regimes, and yet even now in 2017 after being freed from that yoke for 26 years are still treated like their metaphorical Klingon counterparts in Star Trek. And listening to our own Enemedia today, and our warmonger politicians, there seems to be little hope at all for The Undiscovered Country.

              BTW it is a stretch when they say that “we were allied with Russia in both world wars”, it is more accurate to say it never happened at all. Russia was out by the time “we” came along in the First World War. And in World War II the Soviets were never our allies really, They went in allied with Hitler, simultaneously invaded and planned on dividing up Poland and perhaps the entire planet had he not double-crossed Stalin. When FDR and Churchill met Stalin that partnership also was a stretch as the USSR never actually did anything except fight for its own survival as it had already been doing prior to the “partnership” ( nothing ever changed, what was the point again? ). Once they got to Berlin and they were now perfectly safe, Stalin made plans to enter Japan. In truth Stalin grabbed practically the whole of liberated Europe in one form or another ( directly behind the Iron Curtain, or indirectly by flooding stupid western Europe with Communist and Socialist political parties. ) When they say he was our ally they must mean that FDR and Churchill secretly agreed to replace all the swastikas on the map with hammer and sickles because that was what happened.

      He speaks the truth.

      Just yesterday an acquaintance from my church, who is a small farm farmer, brought us some old straw they can’t use. They do this for us occasionally, for our ducks, chickens and garden. They told me that three years ago a Mexican national, and illegal, asked for work. They hired him at minimum wage, gave him free housing with free utilities. They said the Mexican worked all hours with the family during their busy season. He would go back to Mexico during down time.
      Last year the Mexican showed up with his entire family. The farmer housed them also. Within two weeks the Mexican had state medical insurance, EBT card, kids in school with free lunches, etc. Then the Mexican told the farmer that he was advised that he needed a pay raise and he would only work 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No more working at all hours with the family during the busy season like he did previously.
      After a few months the Mexican asked the farmer to help them move to Phoenix because they can get more benefits in Phoenix.
