    For Oregon Representative Sal Esquivel, a Republican who has served in the statehouse for 12 years, the Trump administration’s hard line immigration stance is long overdue.

    Sal Esquivel: This is America. We have borders. We have laws. We’re a nation of laws, so therefore we should adhere to those laws, and we should not ignore the laws that we don’t want to adhere to.

    Sal Esquivel: The state needs to get its act together. And comply with federal law.

    As Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently made clear, federal law requires cities and counties to work with immigration authorities.

    Elizabeth MacDonald, subbing for Deidre Bolton on Risk and Reward/FBN this afternoon, has just blown the doors open on Susan Rice. She is now reporting that Rice targeted other candidates, and other Congress critters…resulting in collection of salacious information that would be very harmful.

    Remember the word, ‘sick’?

    Are all the signals from “45” and news stories about Bannon signaling that he’s leaving?

    He’s been close to Stephen Miller since the campaign and all the key speeches. I hope Miller is safe.

            Most of us prefer to multitask. And it wasn’t the TEA Party we’re talking about, it is Conservatives period having representation. The only place where we are less represented than Congress is the White House ( from what we can see here on the outside ).

            I don’t understand your point though. Is it that getting rid of Bannon is part of MAGA? You can’t mean that, can you? How does having less Conservatives in that city full of jackals MAGA?

              Conservatives is a term that has been hijacked. I have no problem with Bannon and what he brought to the table. Do you believe Neil Gorsuch is a conservative? What about Jeff Sessions? What about T-REX? What about Ben Carson? Tell me one policy our President has not came through on that is not Conservative??? Real conservatism is being well represented just not from your favorite talking head.

                You are correct about the word “conservative”, but I am using it in the real traditional sense: pro-American anti-Globalist Constitutionalist.

                There are two of these conservatives in the White House with the President’s ear. That is what this is about. Going from two to one is bad.

                What talking head? You are incorrect if you think this is some Levintard posting here. If you have convinced yourself this is astroturfing and that the disillusionment is not real then you are not paying attention or are spending all your time in a bubble of cheerleading. You can do that, it’s your right, but we’re also doing what is our right,. And if you know your history of the District of Criminals, this is our duty.

                  You and I are not far apart, except on one crucial thing. You’re plan is to wait until something happens and then apparently react, somehow. When it won’t matter. Others like me do not plan on waiting again.

                  I wrote tthis thing the other day here using the time travel analogy, if you have time to read it. I’m not under the illusion that we can expect to change by b!tching and moaning, but there is no harm in trying. And the window of opportunity is now before it closes.

                  The reason I am perplexed by this effort by some here to quiet the discord is that we just had what was likely the last Presidential election that a (R) could win ( actually that time likely passed already, so it took a Trump hybrid (R) to achieve victory ). They are on the verge of flipping TX and AZ and then it is game over. Once that happens elections will be like Cuba or Venezuela, big shows scheduled every 4 years.

                  After that 16 month campaign everyone here at CTH knows full well the capacity for dirty tricks from the uniparty. They are all still there! So when watching the Administration day-to-day we know there is no room for error and some of us are sensing the makings of such errors. Read what I wrote at that link and understand that almost everyone here complaining about the complainers will also be in our shoes at some point. I won’t be trying to stop you from getting motivated to complain when that happens!

                The policies Trump ran on are his policies that he’s held and championed going back, in some cases, to the 80s. He was a Goldwater Republican then a Reagan Replican, something VERY unusual for a New York Republican. Phylis’s Scraggly, the founder of the Conservative movement announced Trump as the champion she’d been waiting for. Please note, Banning at that time was backing Cruz. Bannon may wind up being a Corey. The bottom line is the ideas are Trumps and will remain, with or without Banning in the WH. This whole narrative is professional propaganda intended to divide Trumps base so he doesn’t have the support to get his MAGA legislation passed. Remember too that Trumps style is to reshuffle staff. Remember the pearl clutching around Corey? It turned out to be very smart to move Corey out. Fight the coordinated divide and conquer strategy.

      I just emailed the WH.

      I am a bit disgusted over the stories, if they are remotely true. Someone should come out with a statement. I could have thrown Charlie Gasbag out a window today if I had been near him.

      Steve Bannon asked us to hold their feet to the fire. I named off all of the cabinet picks who have now been thrown by the wayside. There are quite a few. I also mentioned that I am not interested in what the younger more left wing family members’ agendas are, just the two Steves and Trump’s.

      For what it is worth. Still keeping an open mind, though.

We explained how confident we are in Steve Bannon being his advisor and by his side. We know that the globalists have a hard time getting at Trump if they have to go through Bannon.

        Explained that Bannon carries the Baton from Andrew Breitbart, and speaks with the voice of the late great Phyllis Schlafly. We take comfort when we know that the voice of true Patriots have the ear of our president. Wish there were more like him in Trump’s Inner Circle.

              And why do you even care that others are upset with this possibility of his exit? Why try to tamp down their right to express their feelings to the President they voted for?

              I’ve seen this just happen with the Syria situation as well. It is like a brick wall of protection being thrown up to block even the possibility of feed back getting to the President. Even the RINO GOPer Chief of Staff doesn’t do that.

              Let me tell you something, exactly 30 years ago from today we wish we had today’s ability of getting messages to the President to block Simpson-Mazzoli, the uniparty grant of amnesty to over 3 million illegal aliens.

                  Yep. The media is part of a coordinated propaganda effort to divide Trumps base so he doesn’t have the support to pass his MAGA legislation. Then the propaganda will pivot to Trump did not keep his campaign promises. Trump supporters getting involved in staffing issues are unintentionally supporting the propagandists divide and conquer strategy. Bannon did NOT come up with Trumps platform. Trumps been saying the same things for decades. Now if people want to actually HELP, they’d focus on Pence getting off his ass and doing the job Trump gave him IE preventing cheating in the 2018 election. Palace intrigue gossip is distracting people who don’t know enough to have a valid opinion from focusing on what really matters. This distraction is ABSOLUTELY intentional. The wall and taxes and Obamacare and fair elections are in serious peril and people will sacrifice that to get input on Trumps hiring and firing of staff? Incredible.

              Similarly to handicapping someone with one voice of the opposite opinion, but Bannon carries a lot of weight with President Trump’s constituents, so rather than being necessarily pushed out by the press and the Rinos like Priebus and his BFF Paul Ryan, a voice close to your core voters is just good strategy.

                  How the heck do any of us know what’s going on and what Steve Bannon or anyone else in the WH is really doing? We don’t. It will be what Pres. Trump decides and it is going to have to be what we accept. We really have no say in the matter. By all that we hear through the so called ‘sources’, Bannon is on the outs with certain inner circle people and on the exit ramp. But we don’t know for sure. We don’t know what he is doing or what is happening on a daily basis.

                  I saw him today, on tv, at the press conference with the NATO guy, sitting with the other Trump team members looking like he was one of the group and doing his job whatever that might be. He looked relaxed and happy.

                  From what I have read here and eleswhere, he’s a guy we should want to stay put where he is. I agree and I like what his influence and advice has done for the President as far as I can tell from the credible information known. But honestly, how can any of us be sure that his staying on is the right thing? We cannot and speculating on every rumor that is thrown out there by the media isn’t going to change that. He may leave. He may not. He may work in a different capacity for the President. He may not. We will find out sooner or later.

          Didn’t Bannon support Cruz at first? Are you saying Breitbart and Phyllis Schlafly would have supported Cruz? We know Ms. Schlafly did not.

          Do you think that people bombarded Trump with messages when Lewandowski was no longer his Campaign Manager? Did he listen? How about Manafort? And in the end, who was correct? Why, that would be Trump.

          Look, Trump is the one who has to work face-to-face with these people on a regular basis. Practically trying to force him to work with someone he doesn’t want to work with seems counter-productive. Trump is old enough to know who he wants to work with and who will get him to the winning goal.

          As for the daughter and son-in-law, why does it seem that some people think that Trump has suddenly turned into an easily led and manipulated mush-for-brains? If anyone tried to push him to retain Lewandowski or Manafort, it didn’t work did it? But NOW Trump can be controlled?

                Winning is our goal, but removing a Patriot voice from the innermost circle is not a win, we know that from history and from common sense. But it does please the enemy who wants him gone. Why are so many people arguing the actual enemy position all of a sudde. The enemy are the left, RINOs, neocons, globalists.

                  If criticism and advice from experience == “attacking” in your mind and logic, then you will never understand what is going on I’m afraid. Exactly what did “holding us accountable” even mean in your opinion? Is “accountable” in your vocabulary?

                  I would suggest we should instead try to help him.

                  What does that mean “help him” ? Does it mean cheerleading? That’s already going on. Trump can hear both points of view, which by the way is the very point here …. hearing both points of view … the over-represented RINO neocon globalists versus the pro-American patriots. If you are okay with ejecting the latter, God help us.

                  Why on earth would we pile on Trump at this point?

                  Criticism =/= “Piling on”. By your standard, since the enemy is attacking him then any criticism equals “piling on” so you leave zero room for any criticism. Nice gig if you can get it.

                  And you don’t have to do anything, lead, follow or get out of the way.. If you think that everything is peachy then sit back and watch how events unfold. Not me, I’ve seen this movie before. The enemy is going to try to ruin and then capture the administration through attrition through targeted Enemedia propaganda pogroms demanding this person leave, then after you lay down, submit and quench their thirst they will move on to the next target. You will keep supplying the bodies.

                  You don’t realize it yet but anyone believing that throwing people out targeted by obvious enemy propaganda are unwittingly working for that enemy as useful idiots who Lenin and Alinsky counted on. In fact some folks here have all but said EVERYONE is dispensable and only Trump is indispensable which is as throughly ignorant of enemy strategy as anything I have heard. That is practically fifth column activity.

                  If you do not understand that the enemy is undermining Trump ( as all other before him ) by picking off his people one by one, the most key people first, then there is no reasoning with you. All I can do is pray that he never follows your advice which is servicing the enemy desires.

Or are we going tribal now. Do you think we have the luxury of som many voters in our tribe that we can reject the crossovers? Trump won with crossovers.

            As for Lewandowski and Manafort, I have seen no information that they are of the caliber Bannon is ( who we have a written and audio record of his Patriot credentials ). But there were some anxious people when Corey left because it looked like he was dumped ungraciously to some. But the change was an upgrade. Bannon was a strategist in the USN, he is a (C) who is connected to Hollywood and Media ( a rarity ) and is a billionaire. Like Trump he is not in this for the money, doesn’t need it and is “keeping the faith” in a District of Criminals that has no faith.

            It sure sounds like a lot of people really believe that one man can solve 100 years of corruption of our country. That is faith, but alas, it is not enough. Trump surrounds himself with lots of inputs and then makes the call given available information. Removing this spigot of advice literally goes against his method of operation.

            In the past ( 31 years ago Simpson-Mazzoli, uniparty amnesty to 3+ million illegal aliens.) we had no mechanism to express opinions loudly and urgently to the White House except phone and snail mail. Now there are viable methods and they need to be used before mistakes are made. Trump still can ignore the feedback if he chooses, but at least let him hear it.

In fact, his strategy to focus on the “blue block” states paid off in spades.

          Trump’s agenda has been “evolving” (changing). We should hold Trump accountable for those changes and any he makes in the future.

            Hold him accountable how? By attacking his family? I would hope not.

            I really don’t see this “change” in his agenda that some people keep throwing out there. Someone leaving the administration does not automatically mean an agenda change.

            Besides no one has left yet anyway so all this whining and complaining is a moot point. At this time anyway.

        Bannon said to hold Trump accountable for achieving the concrete GOALS he promised while campaigning. Trump never detailed his strategy for achieving those goals. If we insist that Trump explain every step he will fail. The opposition propagandists know this and are trying to get us to do just that. What would help is if we focus on getting the Russia investigation wrapped up. Find out the answer to the question “Where did this fake story come from and how did it spread.?” Get Howdy on it. Then focus on Pence. Get him to clean up the 2018 voting process. Look at the promises Trump has kept and moves he’s made to set up for future success in less than 100 days then leave Trump alone. Bug Howdy and Pence. They’ve achieved nothing, unlike Trump.

      Miller was on the team way before Bannon. If Bannon goes I think it will be more personality. President Trump has had basically the same message from day one and it was refined , but the battle now is with Congress, not Ivanka or anyone else.

      I’m not exactly sure what people think Bannon is influencing so much at this point…It’s healthcare and taxes, but I do hope he stays…

      I didn’t get any signals that Bannon is leaving. He was in the front row today smiling at the T-Rex presser with Russia. The ones pushing this story are the MSM, Charlie Gasbag, Dobbs, and Laura. Mulvaney was on Laura’s radio show today, and said it is all a bunch of hogwash. He said that they all get along and work very well together. He said sure they have differences of opinions, but that is all. He said this stuff in the media is not true.

          Lol. Trump represents the populist, Conservatives in his coalition. He was a national voice for these ideas before Bannon was out of high school. The opposing views help him sharpen his thinking, understand and overcome objections to his ideas. Finally, no one seems to care that forcing Bannon to work out of the WH is keeping him in hell. This job is so not his style. It’s too static and methodical. I bet Bannon is chafing to get free from the WH routine without damaging the cause.

    This story writes its own ending. Trump-hater and general all-around moonbat Shia Lebeouf has a new art project, now that his latest movie sold all of three tickets. You may remember how well the “He will not divide us” art project went for him once the weaponized autists at Reddit and 4chan got involved. They chased him from NYC to rural Tennessee to Liverpool.

    He’s now vowed to spend a month alone in a remote Finland cabin, linked only by a message line to a museum in Helsinki. He expects his fans to send him encouraging messages from the museum. See the problem? If the autists don’t own the message line within days, I’ll be amazed. Should be quite amusing.

    Hard to say which is slipping faster for Shia, his grip on fame or his grip on sanity.

      What’s really funny about this last move is that, out of all the W. European countries he could have gone too, Finland is probably the one that is the LEAST receptive to his message.

      That’s the first place they got together one of those groups like the Guardian Angels here in the States that patrolled areas prone to “refugee” problems. And that was 2 or 3 years ago.

      They’ll be building a border wall between themselves and Sweden at some point. They were patrolling border areas waaay before other western Europeans were even thinking about it.

The guy is so corrupt and I am sure PTrump cannot stand him but what if there are forces that will not allow it. What if he cannot get rid of that piece of crap Ryan either .

    There are many trying to sabotage PTrump…I said this before this is all like a minefield for him. I am not sure he cannot just do whatever he wants….he has to BE CAREFUL. Perhaps that is why he has family around Am I just being paranoid or what??

    You pointed out that everyone in the world was attacking Trump then seemed to suggest Patriots should too?

    If criticism and advice from experience == “attacking” in your mind and logic, then you will never understand what is going on I’m afraid. Exactly what did “holding us accountable” even mean in your opinion? Is “accountable” in your vocabulary?

    I would suggest we should instead try to help him.

    What does that mean “help him” ? Does it mean cheerleading? That’s already going on. Trump can hear both points of view, which by the way is the very point here …. hearing both points of view … the over-represented RINO neocon globalists versus the pro-American patriots. If you are okay with ejecting the latter, God help us.

    Why on earth would we pile on Trump at this point?

    Criticism =/= “Piling on”. By your standard, since the enemy is attacking him then any criticism equals “piling on” so you leave zero room for any criticism. Nice gig if you can get it.

    And you don’t have to do anything, lead, follow or get out of the way.. If you think that everything is peachy then sit back and watch how events unfold. Not me, I’ve seen this movie before. The enemy is going to try to ruin and then capture the administration through attrition through targeted Enemedia propaganda pogroms demanding this person leave, then after you lay down, submit and quench their thirst they will move on to the next target. You will keep supplying the bodies.

    You don’t realize it yet but anyone believing that throwing people out targeted by obvious enemy propaganda are unwittingly working for that enemy as useful idiots who Lenin and Alinsky counted on. In fact some folks here have all but said EVERYONE is dispensable and only Trump is indispensable which is as throughly ignorant of enemy strategy as anything I have heard. That is practically fifth column activity.

    If you do not understand that the enemy is undermining Trump ( as all other before him ) by picking off his people one by one, the most key people first, then there is no reasoning with you. All I can do is pray that he never follows your advice which is servicing the enemy desires.

    The policies Trump ran on are his policies that he’s held and championed going back, in some cases, to the 80s. He was a Goldwater Republican then a Reagan Replican, something VERY unusual for a New York Republican. Phylis’s Scraggly, the founder of the Conservative movement announced Trump as the champion she’d been waiting for. Please note, Banning at that time was backing Cruz. Bannon may wind up being a Corey. The bottom line is the ideas are Trumps and will remain, with or without Banning in the WH. This whole narrative is professional propaganda intended to divide Trumps base so he doesn’t have the support to get his MAGA legislation passed. Remember too that Trumps style is to reshuffle staff. Remember the pearl clutching around Corey? It turned out to be very smart to move Corey out. Fight the coordinated divide and conquer strategy.

    Wait, whut? Phylis’s Scraggly ? You mean Phyllis Schlafly ? Courageous anti-Feminazi pro-life conservative woman who just passed away last fall ? That snide remark comes from a deep dark place Cozette, sounds like you got a helluvan axe to grind. She’s done a lot more than you or I in her lifetime. Especially you from what I can see.

    I won’t bother correcting your wafer thin knowledge of the “Conservative movement” except to say that you really don’t even understand our President Trump’s own history. I will again adress one thing, and it is the only thing you managed to get right in that comment …

    “This whole narrative is professional propaganda intended to divide Trumps base…”

    It is an enemy action, yes. To oust each of Trump’s team one by one, it is the enemy’s go-to strategy. They are doing it as we speak. Have been, since he was elected.

    But guess what? Despite your acknowledgement of the enemy campaign here, you immediately pivot and like many others, are abetting it. For each of their targeted Trump Team members, we now see that you and others will happily toss them overboard as the enemy demands. Accommodate the enemy. Appeasement. Helluva plan.

    Will you comprehend what I just said or not is the question. I think not.
