    “I disavow! I disavow! I’m off the Trump Train now! Trump is a stupid idiot and a weak baby who’s being duped and controlled by the psyops of super geniuses like Bill Kristol and Karl Rove!”

    I’ve seen too many variations of the above nonsense since last night – too many “true conservative pundits” who turned out to be self-interested frauds. I’m trilled with our President so far and he’s been doing exactly the kind of measured, strategic bottom line actions I voted for.

    Hillary Clinton Here’s Why I Lost to Trump

    — Russia … she blames Putin for meddling in the election and having an aversion to strong women

    — Misogyny … she thinks a lot of people just couldn’t handle a woman Prez

    — FBI Director Comey … she says he torpedoed her with his email probe 2 weeks before the election

    — WikiLeaks … she says the leaks and Comey were like a 1-2 punch

    She does admit she could have done some things better.

      She never stood a chance. Only a libtard who believed in her own fake polls and fake news would have thought otherwise. I’m glad she’s learned nothing and I hope she runs again, if she survives her next few liver transplants.

      Never did I hear that a voter, man or woman, just didn’t want a woman to be president.

      I heard the SCOTUS and our Constitution, that she had a HUGE track record as a liar, Benghazi being just one example, that she left our men to die in Benghazi, her far left view on abortion up to the minute of birth/40 weeks, socialism, and many other left issue stances – but never just because she was a woman! And many made a point of saying that her being a woman was Not the problem but her track record and her stance on the issues.

      “Russia … she blames Putin for meddling in the election and having an aversion to strong women”
      — still waiting for evidence of how he manipulated the paper ballots in key swing states, let alone worked all sorts of other nationwide changes. He might have missed out on the strong woman part when she delivered on the uranium deal, or when she couldn’t face the music on election night.

      “— Misogyny … she thinks a lot of people just couldn’t handle a woman Prez”
      But if she would’ve won without Boris meddling, doesn’t that mean that a majority DID handle it and actually voted for her? Which narrative are we going with?

      “— FBI Director Comey … she says he torpedoed her with his email probe 2 weeks before the election”
      Uh, didn’t he go against the legal standard in the first place concerning what she did server-wise by claiming supposed lack of intent meant he could let her off the hook? Plus, he rushed through with speed unseen in other investigations to deliver the word that she was clear of investigations (something he’s yet to do with her opponent).

      “— WikiLeaks … she says the leaks and Comey were like a 1-2 punch”
      Yes, leaks of deleterious facts that even principals involved like Harwood indicate happened will impact the voting totals.

      “She does admit she could have done some things better.”
      No, we’re fine with you on the sidelines.

    After what happened last night, I think watching this will give everyone some perspective on how certain events are shaping the Trump presidency. This video does mention the almost vote on phase one of the health legislation and so I knew this was very recent. This is Mark Taylor btw. He speaks a lot here about unity but he talks about Gorsuch and the supreme court for just a brief minute or two. Some of you may remember him talking about things getting rocky in the first few months of this presidency and of course we are seeing that now. He said that things will probably get really bad for a while with possibly several incidences of civil unrest but he kept emphasizing about praying for POTUS and he also mentioned about praying for the removal of these unelected judges and even some members of congress. He’s basically telling us not to give up the fight and to continue praying.


  5. Remember when Iran was talking a bunch of trash to Trump, essentially stating test him. Trump displaying his strength, don’t test the Alpha Male. He made an example out of Assad and told the world to kiss his @$$ if they didn’t like it. Trump is now testing world leaders to see how they respond.

    Key mission for China at Xi-Trump summit: learning who has his ear

    Following a period of great uncertainty since Trump was elected, China has learned to adopt new ways of communication in dealing with the unpredictable US leader, mainly through his trusted advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is seen by Beijing officials as a “pragmatic” man, according to Chinese foreign policy experts.

    For some, the pedestal on which they have placed PDJT teeters and wobbles, due to their own pacing, wringing and overwrought fandom.

    Some perspective is in order. Remember that the choice was stark – no chance, or every chance. Either you trust, or you do not.

    I’ll go for the former.

          I can’t comment, because I am freaking out a little myself. The news on twitter is all over the place. Bannon is being pushed out by Ivanka and Jared (I’ve don’t think either of them should be in the position they are in. Trump needs his sons around him, not his feminist daughter and her hubby). No, he is not. Trump did the right thing, No, Trump has flipped. It happened so fast, it takes some time for a fella to sort it out. I don’t know what’s going on, I’m apparently the only person who doesn’t know what’s going on.

          There are real Trolls, who no matter what, Trump can do no right. There are the cultists. where Trump can do no wrong. I am neither. I don’t know what’s going on, I’m apparently the only person who doesn’t know what’s going on.

            Relax. Look at the crap we stayed strong with during the primaries and the election. Trump always owns the downside and always hits that counter punch.

            What Trump ordered last night had to be done. He passed the Presidential test with flying colors. He had to smash the Obama failure.


    • wheatietoo says:

      One of the first things Pres Trump did was sign an EO to halt the invasion of ‘Syrian refugees’.
      That was blocked.
      He did another one…and that was blocked too.

      I think he saw what was coming next after this latest chem weapon attack:

      “We cannot stop taking in the ‘Syrian refugees’ because chemical weapons!!11!!!”

      That’s right. Renewed calls for even more muslim invaders to be let into our country…”because chemical weapons!”

      Candidate Trump said repeatedly, that he would “wipe ISIS off the face of the earth”.
      How did people figure he was going to do that?
      With harsh language?

      We have 1000 troops over there now, in Syria, fighting ISIS.
      Learning that there are chem weapons there…well, that added a whole new level of urgency.

      All these people who are saying…”OMG. He used some bombs!”…are just not making a whole lot of sense right now.

      Sorry for my harsh reply but look. I and others don’t think the influence that Ivanka and Jared have is good or appropriate. I understand Trump loves his daughter, but neither her or her husband are qualified to be advising him on foreign affairs, which apparently they have been doing. The talk is that they are trying to push Steve Bannon out, which would be a disaster.

      Ivanka’s name came out as one who pushed for the removal of Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s original campaign director, who was very VERY loyal to Trump. What the heck does she know about Presidential campaigns and foreign affairs? she is in over her head. She is also quite a feminist, and can’t help but try to push Trump to the left.

      Whether they are Jewish or not doesn’t matter. They need to be looked at with a critical eye..


      • cozette says:

        Corey was loyal but loyalty isn’t everything. Competence is also important. Corey was perfect for stage one. Manafort was perfect for navigating the Byzantine Convention attempt by Never Trumpets to deny Trump the nomination and Bannon and KAC were perfect for the general election phase. If Ivanka was a part of these decisions then bravo to her. Trump has a right to his advisors and staff. Period. I really dislike this narrative that Ivanka is the enemy because she is a democrat. One, she is an independent. Two many democrats voted for Trump which is why he won and many Republicans actively or passively supported Hillary. This NOT about party. It’s about Americans versus globalists. Attacks on Jared and Ivan’s ignore these realities and serve the globalist goal of dividing Trumps coalition into warring factions. Shame on anyone who participates in this obvious splinter strategy.

          Agreed. I’m not here to prop her prop her up when she does something i feel “awesome” and degrade her( and Jared) when she does something i find “horrible”.


      • wheatietoo says:

        Pres Trump has sacrificed sooo much…for us.
        For example, he has five other homes that make the White House look like a dump.

        I think that having Ivanka near him gives him comfort.
        Sometimes even the most powerful man needs the simple comfort of a hug…from someone who loves him, unconditionally.

        So I am not going to deny him that comfort.

        Ivanka and Jared are a package deal; they are married, with three little ones.
        I think it gives P45 sheer joy to see some of his grandbabies on a regular basis.

        Jared is a smart guy.
        So far, I haven’t seen any harm in the work he’s done for us.
        Maybe I missed something…in which case, perhaps you can let me know what I missed.

        All these rumors such as “Ivanka wants Bannon out”, are just rumors, aren’t they?

        As far as Corey leaving…well, I don’t think he had the experience to handle the enormity of a National Presidential Campaign.
        Love Corey. He’s a great guy & very loyal.
        But the mission was to Win.

          I hope you are right on this wheatie. In general, it is not good to have family involved in business, but the Trumps seem to pull it off. There has been too much being said on the Bannon/kushner conflict and KAC certainly didn’t offer strong denials on the subject tonight. I am not liking it. Seems to be some truth to it. Hope not.


          • KitKat says:

            I read just above that Bannon said he advised against the attack on Syria because it wasn’t America First. After Trump’s surge of general popularity after proceeding, he might draw conclusions about Bannon’s advice from that. I hope not, but I can see it as a possibility. From what I read today, Farage and Bannon were essentially on the same page re the attack.


        • WSB says:

          My only concern is that Jared and Ivanka retained Jamie Gorelick as their attorney for separating their investments. If true, she may be a very bad element and advisor, not to mentionand leaker. She has direct lines of communication to Soros, Brock, and others.

    The rumors I am seeing that “Syria’s President Assad has suffered a stroke” or is dead would be an interesting new dimension to the puzzle.

      I was wondering what the three choices were. An earlier post today said he was given three choices to consider and at the meeting, quickly eliminated one option and focused on two in particular.\\

      So now we know two of them. 1. The strike that he did, and 2. the option to eliminate Assad’s whole air force on six bases.

      I wonder what the third choice was, and which two he seriously looked at.

      Then the fake Intel can be exposed by independent investigators which will help Trump CONTINUE to drain the IC swamp. Consider this a sting by team Trump. Trump did not have the power or political capital to straight out call the “patriots in the military IC” liars. Remember the neocons are trying to impeach Trump for treasonous collusion with Putin. How could he side with Putin over our military’s Intel to protect Putin’s puppet? The dying babies videos were constantly on the air. Trumps solution was brilliant. He did a symbolic strike which shut the neo con narrative up. Assad is safe. Tillerson can now negotiate with Russia next week without fear of being called a traitor. Neo cons btfo.

Also, they’re hyping a Russian ship “steaming” towards the area with the USS Porter (RT story says routine return to port in Syria with one month stay).
