  1. I’m not giving up on anything our President has promised….Nothing worth it is ever easy. The changes he wants for us are complicated and will no doubt take time to work through. I don’t accept this setback as defeat but rather an opportunity to get it right. Time,patients,determination, and strength is needed to get to where we need to be. Smile and appreciate his willingness to take these arrows for us. God bless you President, treepers and United states of America. A new day has come the sun has arisen anew on this day, tomorrow is yet another opportunity and we are all so very blessed. Let’s pray for not only ourself a but also for those who have not yet seen the light.

      maybe consider this a learning experience for President Trump regarding the way congress operates. Now that he knows how Paul Ryan manipulates, maybe there will be another opportunity for President Trump to take Paul Ryan to the cleaners.

      Remember what Eric Trump said about his Dad in the campaign. “I have seen my Dad make some incredible deals—-where “impossible” was the starting point”

    For all the people who have called me a troll on earlier postings:

    I have been one of the most loyal Trump supporter and commenting on this site for the past 3 years. Old timers know me.

    I was fully supportive of his entire cabinet and loved every pick but have recently been suspicious of most. Why is DOJ not more aggressive in Obama wiretapping/surveillance? Why did his strong advisors Bannon and others let him walk into that Healthcare Ryan trap? Until today, Preibus has been MIA on defending President’s agenda on TV and with MSM.

        Absolutey correct Cheshire and I posted that very quote by Patton several days back. TCTH is by far the most infotmative site I read, but at times there is a “group think” and rather than have an exchange of ideas or rational argument on differing opinions, some will quickly label you a troll and want you to shut up or be removed. Those behaviors are too similar to the left and troll is pulled out like the race card. Conservatives, in general, are more varied in ideas and aren’t sheep that blindly follow. Sometimes it won’t get a bill passed, but we bring more to the discussion, if it is allowed.

          Well I feel your pain, Rafaella. Ever since I was labeled a ‘concern troll’ by our Leader for daring to question something then candidate Donald J. Trump said, I have been a BIT leary of exercising my freedom of speech on this site. However, I certainly do continue to support President Trump. I just wish we could have some honest-to-goodness thoughtful discussions without all this pollyanna rah rah stuff (albeit that, too, has its occasional place.)

              I don’t think the old timers are participating in what you describe. I’ve watched them drop out slowly.

              CTH has grown tremendously. Most of the old timers have something significant and informative to say while others just parrot thoughts, or as you imply, participate in group think. These parroted comments are boring to read. I seek the more informative comments and have begun to skip the parrots.

              I read here every day but I’m finding that I can actually skip a day of reading the comments and just read SD’s articles and still be informed. I’m very sorry to see that happen to CTH as I have been educated enormously here.

          I’m an old timer here, OldSchool. It’s not so much “group think” as it is “expel troll think”
          There are real trolls that swarm this site. “Correct the Record” was a daily hassle before the election. Before that, Cruzlim trolls.

          People want to keep this place as troll free as possible – so that people CAN speak freely. Real Trolls can and will wreck a place. But some go too far and call ANY criticism or dissent, “trolls” when they are just expressing a different opinion or skeptical. Which can give the place a cultish flavor.

          Not to mention that people are passionate, which can make the place very intense. Throw in the general roller coaster ride we are on, and then people misfire and lash out, and then everybody is a “troll”. I assume you can see my point.

          I’ve been called a troll wrongly, and have called other people trolls wrongly. Probably no solution, but overall this is one of the best sites I have ever participated on. But it can get too much, so it’s a good idea to take a break and step back from time to time

      I was watching videos of Mike Cernovich who said Ryan was “Trumped” on healthcare and that it was a setup to get rid of Ryan as Speaker because NOTHING will be done with Ryan in charge especially “building the wall” which was Trump’s signature campaign promise. He makes sense. HFC gave Trump a standing O when they met with him and maybe he gave them a wink and a nod!
      The House has been complaining that Ryan shut them out of everything so now get rid of him for good. Ryan should now be “boehnered” and the House should nominate someone who will work with Trump on his agenda to get the country going again.

      The interesting thing about the health-care bill is that PDJT asked the bill to be pulled
      – I see this as strategy, a warning, part of “Art of the Deal”.

      It didn’t get voted on and lost – PDJT had control over the outcome. Powerful optics?

      Definitely an interesting 66 days so far – NEVER seen a president have to fight most members of Congress because he wanted to put the people first. CALLING OUT and EXPOSING the decades long elephant in the room –> A Compromised Congress.

      Jared is useless.

      What we have is the inner circle are not up to the class. They don’t understand the enemies of the Movement, the President, the policies. It is clear.

      This is not negative thinking by us.

      Thousands, maybe as many as hundreds of thousands of people are amassed against reforms, change and honesty.

      Trump loves America. He loves work. He loves people. He wanted everyone to bake a pie of success or have a piece of pie of success.

      This is not a shared dream by anyone in Washington. It means risk. It means sincerity. It means merit. And it means hard work and integrity.

      America has changed. Trump represents values from 60 years ago and earlier.

      So, we expected all the inner circle to protect him and deliver the goods.

      They all failed so far. He will shape them up or change them for others.

      There can be only one agenda. America First. This has to be first order of business by all the closest people to him. That has not been done.

      We saw this unfold for 60 days and sensed things were askew on the big policies.
      We were correct.

      Now, he must bring in all the Congressional resistors and break them down in person, individually. He has to crack apart all caucuses. There can be only one oath of fealty and it must be to America First, not some contrived conservative or worse ideology.

      He’s a listener. They need to put up or resign and get out DC. America needs loyalty.

        I pray you are right Bull. I don’t have as much faith that President trump will replace any in his close circle of advisors, but it would be very encouraging if he did. I think he leans on them because they are familiar with governing in Washington and he is not. In many ways, I could never touch his knowledge or intelligence. In other ways, like figuring out who the good and bad guys are, I feel as though I know more than he does. Which is scary.

        However – like so many of you, I am a faithful, praying person. God sees it all. I knew this was great site when one of the first things I saw here was the Lord’s Prayer. Let us hang together, dear Treepers, and send our prayers to God Almighty that He will continue to have His hand on our brave president. God bless America and all of you.

    OK peeps … time for a reality check. Donald Trump was very interested in politics for many, many years. He comes out of New York City …. one of the toughest places in the WORLD to succeed as a real estate developer! … and he succeeded to an extent none of us can imagine! He knows and has known for a VERY long time just how crooked politicians are and just how low they will go to line their pockets as he himself had to do a lot of pocket lining to get things done on his projects ….. you can all take that to the bank! Don’t you all know that he knew EXACTLY what he was getting in to here? He had no motive whatsoever as at 70 years of age worth many billions of dollars he was set for life! His only motive was LOVE for the USA and for US!! But he is NOT stupid, he is NOT naive, he is NOT over his head, he does NOT need anyone telling him who to trust, he does NOT need anyone telling him who not to trust, he does NOT need anyone second guessing his cabinet picks. He knows what he is doing! He knows how tough a job he has chosen! If only all of us could believe in him HALF as much as he believes in himself then we could render the support and love and backbone he needs us to show the world and help him MAGA! So all the trolls can go f**k off, all the doubters and second guessers need to take a break. Say your prayers, trust in the Almighty God, and trust Trump! God Bless President Donald Trump.

    “Defame Islam”? I wonder if President Trump knows that his Secretary of Defense – “Mad Dog Mattis” is an apologist for Islamic terrorists who are acting in complete accordance with the tenets of Islam as commanded in the Quran and the Hadith’s?

    The more I learn about Mattis that more I believe he was a horrible pick for Defense Secretary.

    ~~~

    Veteran news anchor Ted Koppel tells Sean Hannity to his face that he is ‘bad for America’ and his Fox News show hurts the American people ‘in the long haul’
    26 March 2017

    Ted Koppel had some harsh words for Fox News host Sean Hannity this morning.

    In a CBS ‘Sunday Morning’ segment, the veteran news journalist said he thinks Hannity, a Fox News commentator, is ‘bad for America.’

    Hannity said, of the difference between commentary shows such as his own and actual news programs: ‘We have to give some credit to the American people that they are somewhat intelligent and that they know the difference between an opinion show and a news show.’

    Hannity then called Koppel ‘cynical,’ which Koppel affirmed.

    Hannity asked: ‘Do you think we’re bad for America? You think I’m bad for America?’

    Koppel said ‘yes’ and that ‘in the long haul’ such ‘influential’ talk shows as Hannity’s hurt the American people.

    Koppel added: ‘You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.’

    Hannity said that Koppel’s rebuke was ‘sad.’

    On the television program, Hannity also said that ‘liberalism has to be defeated’ and said that ‘angry snowflakes, a ‘Democratic establishment’ and ‘the press in this country’ are all obstacles

    Hannity later tweeted about the news segment and referred to it as ‘fake edited news.’

    He wrote that his 45-minute interview was cut down to two minutes and that and that his examples of ‘media bias’ and of how ‘liberalism has failed’ were edited out

    He tweeted at CBS: ‘Release the Unedited 45 minute interview so people can see the BS games you play in the edit room. I dare you!’

        Youme, that is depressingly convoluted thinking on the part of Muslim sycophants on the courts and Muslim “persons of standing” but they are right about one thing…much of America believe Islam is the enemy.

        Muslims who adhere to the strict tenets of their political religion join ISIS. Those who are afraid to walk away from the death cult have my sympathy…I mean, who wants to have his head severed from body? The nation is under siege from those who believe in Sharia; from those who are “moderates” and try to lull us infidels into thinking they are trying to “moderate” their religion; from those who practice taqiyya; from those “persons of standing” who basically hate Western civilization; and from those who wish us dead. Where is our “Person of Standing” to represent us who wish to remain alive?

        Leftism and all its adherents are willingly brainwashed. It was a sad day when Obama was elected. His destructive actions and words will have consequences for the next 100 years and likely well beyond.

Likewise, isn’t Priebus supposed to know what Ryan is doing and shouldn’t he have known Ryan didn’t have the votes? And where was Pence? Wasn’t Pence supposed to manage Congress, except of course when he’s working on voter fraud, which as far as I can see he hasn’t done anything about. I do not think these people are doing their jobs.

      Vice President Pence is doing what President Trump assigns him. He has no Constitutional authority to do anything else except preside over the Senate. Looks to me that the Vice President’s calendar is quite full. If he’s been assigned the voter fraud investigation, then he’s doing it. Or do you think the President doesn’t check up on what he assigns others to do?

        President Trump said that Pence would “oversee” what was happening in Congress. If I had that job and Ryan kept saying he had the votes and other top senators were saying he didn’t, I would have made it my business to get my own count and report any problem (like not having the votes) to President Trump. I suppose Priebus has more of an excuse since his main focus in the WH staff, but I still think he should have checked when top senators started saying the votes weren’t there. So, no, I don’t think Ryan, Pence, and Priebus are doing their jobs because none of them, to our knowledge, gave President Trump the facts. If you want to argue and say that Pence and Priebus may have told President Trump, okay, maybe they did, but somehow I think that would have changed the way the deal played out. Bottom line: these people are not dong their jobs.

          Type A hands-on keep-me-informed personalities like President Trump do not just assume a job is being done. It does not matter how busy a Type A is. He not only wants to be informed, he MUST be informed or it will swarm around in his mind until he gets satisfaction. I’ve worked for men like this. Everyone toes the line and keeps him in the loop. His underlings report on progress like clockwork or they are called on the carpet or out the door.

          Bottom line, yes, they did not do their jobs of keeping him properly informed…everyone concerned–without exception–lied to him instead. That the only conclusion that can be made. Because there is no way he would not have been reported to on something so tremendously important to him, his campaign and the American people.

        Pretty clear from his schedule that he has no time other than to trust that people are getting things done right. So far, some people have failed. Trump has excelled and we assume others are doing their jobs. If so, we would not have roadblocks, failures, leaks, and incredibly inept messaging.

        Trump is the whole game. In that Oval Office it is hard to see who is doing well other than Trump.

        They just let Boris Epshteyn go, and he was in charge of TV spokespeople. We know that’s been a botch. He’s a close friend of Eric. They are looking for some job in some department for him, but not the WH.

        He argued with Fox and other cable outlets about who they wanted and who he wanted to put on. The important thing is WH is backing down instead of doubling down.

        I’d tell them you get Stephen Miller, period.

        This is why leaving the boys out of it was not smart. For one year, Don Jr. and Eric should have been spokespeople. No worries about conflict of interest. They just take a year off.

        The boys were great at speaking for Trump and policy.

        With Miller, Don Jr. and Eric, the press would have gone nuts.

          Trump had a pretty tight schedule during the years he built the Trump Empire. If he would just rely on the judgement of his management team, his business could most likely fail. He knew what’s going on, and I bet, he knows now. The MSM plants lots of false impressions into heads of their consumers. That’s the reason, I refuse to watch TV and refuse to read MSM commentaries. Even so called “right wing” media outlets are full of shlt… To ask yourself why and try to give a rational answer to the question helps.

    I just tuned into Fox for Judge Jenine and caught a few minutes of Martha Maccallum holding a “town hall” abut health care.

    The panelists were Clinton’s campaign manager, Robbie freaking Mook and David Bosie, a Trump surrogate.

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ROBBIE FREAKING MOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      What has happened to common sense?

      The Left has worked hard to replace it with Political Correctness.

      Common Sense would tell us that it is insane to welcome in people who have vowed to kill us.
      — But Political Correctness dictates that he have to.

      Common Sense would tell us that with 94 million people out of work…that it would be crazy to keep letting in even more people.
      — But Political Correctness dictates that we have to.

      The list is long, of the crazy things we are allowing right now.
      And we can attribute pretty much all of them to…political correctness.

      Political Correctness is a clear and present danger to our survival.
      And it must be abolished!

    I loved the Clancy books Debt of Honor and the companion follow-on Executive Orders. I am so pissed-off at the Washington cabal that I would actually cheer out loud and throw a party if the climax of Debt of Honor were to happen in real life. That’s a pretty sad statement–but it is true and honest.

    I have reached the point where it is time for me to turn it all off, including this site, which is rapidly morphing from a once intellectaully-stimulating exchange of ideas into a group-think rah rah club. I am not the only long-time poster here who has been called a ‘troll’ today by newbies because I dared to question the plot line and the players who surround the President.

    The budding Trump/Ryan/Democrat alliance is just too much for me to bear. Even though I hate the #nevertrumpers for their pre-election antics, there is no damn way that I am going to choose the side that Trump currently ‘fully supports’ over people who at least mouth my concerns. That’s a lose-lose scenario for me personally.

    It’s been fun getting to know some of you old-timers here the past couple of years–but it’s time for me to self-impose an exile and just tune out and turn it ALL off for at least a little while and perhaps for good.

    Nothing ever really changes and until/unless Trump and his people actually do something of substance besides posture and talk then there is simply no point in exposing myself to this continual psychological abuse and disappointment any longer. There is nothing good gained by wasting precious time and life being angry and disappointed all the time. I did all I could do to help get Trump elected and am personally responsible for red-pilling many people. He’s the President now in small part becaue of me. I want to see this administration arrest and jail some folks who have commited high crimes…not cut deals with them. Until that starts happening, I am out of the fight and off-line.

    I leave you with this thought…the Uniparty is very much like the Harlem Globetrotters show. Every night the ‘Globetrotters’ (Democrats) would play the same ‘Washington Generals’ (Republicans) and the Generals would make it look like there was a game on–but the end result is always the same…the designated winners (Democrats) always come from behind and beat the designated LOSERS (Republicans). It would be just as foolish to bet on the Generals to ‘win’ against the ‘Globetrotters’ as it is to bet on the pathetic and feckless Republicans against the Democrats. The last time the Washinton Generals won a game against the Globetrotters was in 1971! Over the years they have lost 13,000 games.

    Don’t you think it is apropos that the designated ‘losers’ have a name that sounds strong and intimidating…’The Washington Generals’, whereas as the designated ‘winners’ are the ‘Globetrotters’. Globetrotters sounds a lot like ‘globalists’ to me.

    Enjoy the Globetrotter show folks, but just remember how it almost always ends.

    Adios everyone.
