    Posted this in another thread….do you think POTUS drops these tweets just to watch the MSM buzzards come in for the kill?? And was this dinner with Comey when he was under secret surveillance? Maybe there IS something there?

      Linda, I think you’re correct POTUS tweets come with a purpose directed at the MSM. However, Sundance has stated many times the surveillance narrative is a big nothing-burger. I believe Trump knows this and is using this against his adversaries.

      Strategically, if Trump keeps the MSM in a feeding frenzy with all their energy focused on the Russia/Firing stories, then it leaves the Trump team plenty of open space to do all the other important work — jobs, trade deals, the wall, swamp draining, etc. with minimal MSM interference.

        Darn you busted my bubble. I thought the President was posting those tweets to make me smile and even sometimes laugh out loud. I thought he and I had a telepathic link somehow. Oh well I will still continue to enjoy them.

      Some thoughts on today’s press briefing:
      Listening to McMaster, America First has morphed into America chained to Globalist agendas.

      McMaster ignores who Mohammed is and what he directed, commanded all muslims to do, violent Jihad. Why??

      Partners vs Dhimmi’s Islam has no non muslim ‘partners’.

      Unity, what does that mean to Mohammed?
      Peaceful vision? Look at what ‘peace ‘ means to Mohammed.
      World Unity, a true globalist.
      UN brings rape and pedophilia with their ‘peace keepers’, accidental?

      Will the NATO sandbaggers pay back $?

      McGlobalMasters is a true NeoCon.

      What are the mustering Jordanian troups getting ready to do on the Syrian border?

      American ‘leadership’ sounds a lot like another military adventure about to occur when McMaster says it.

      Afghanistan minus the US = Zero. They run. CIA weaponized the Taliban and ISIS. To unwrap this requires the reverse.

      McMaster tried to be a report to Trump, tried.

      The press seem to like McMaster, any wonder why?

      Assad is not an issue. Iran is only a problem if Saudi is a problem. Iran = Saudi Arabia = Islam.

      These press question-readers in the press briefing are incredibly snotty, why?

      Move the press to the nasty bathroom and put a Skype video station there.

    That briefing was a disaster for Spicer.

    According an anonymous GOP lawyer on twitter that I follow, Spicer just opened up the White House to having to produce the tapes or confirm they don’t exist (i.e. the President was lying), the concept of…’Legally Discoverable’. (which doesn’t apply to Twitter posts apparently)

    When asked about their existence he should have said “No Comment”, not waffled on.

    Of course it could just be Trump’s plan all along to release said tapes.

    And on a different note….had to chuckle at the Youtube Ad at the top of CTH home page. Keith Olberman’s Resistance video…..

      Yeah I saw that. In my view, there are some inter-related self-sabotage issues going on.

      T45 reportedly only gave his comms team 1 hours to prepare for the firing. In hindsight that does not appear to be adequate. If he can’t trust his comms team and key staff not to leak, well that is a major problem, the leak(s) needs to be found and replaced. If he has other reasons for not giving them more than 1 hour on major developments, then a major upgrade is needed to the comms team because they did not handle it well on short notice and ended up feeding into the media frenzy.

      Also T45 needs to be careful to not overuse Twitter. It is such an effective weapon but if he over uses it, and it starts getting tuned out, then he has lost one of the few advantages he has. It is certainly understandable why he has resorted to so much Twitter this week as if we are all incredibly frustrated, imagine how he must feel with the never ending Russia saga and now the firing being completely twisted into a story about leaking, staff turmoil, FBI retribution, etc. But relying too much on Twitter is not a good long term solution, so again need to fix comms team.

      For those that say this is a masterplan to draw attention away from other initiatives or to smoke out opposition, I say hogwash. This was not a good week for the President. Instead of focus on all of the progress being made, we will now have a full weekend of coverage over possible tapes.

        Your opinion. Comey is gone – awesome. The globalist cult is unhinged and increasingly desperate. They are dedicated to overturning the election and they seem to be getting closer to a by any means necessary approach. Do you think rolling out the decision to fire Comey in a slightly different manner would change this dynamic? If you are going to base decision making on what the MSM does than you are accepting defeat. Buckle up because this is only going to get more intense.

    That was really well done. They’re finally finding their role and nailing the correct attitude. “The tweet speaks for itself, I have no further comment” is exactly the right response.

    Just look at all of the snarky, trashy articles and fairy tales that are not being published about all of the great work the President has accomplished in MakingAmericaGreatAgain daily.
    If it were not for Sundance and CTH; I would not be aware of much of these daily accomplishments.

    So here’s my idea: Each day, let the swamp media blabber on about whichever manufactured crisis they want, but, each and every one of the conservative, or objective media, should ensure that ALL of their questions relate only to important matters, i.e., the trade agreement with China, or something that is REAL. Over time, more and more people will realize – hopefully – who are the ones who are presenting REAL news and who are the ones who are continuing to propagate nasty agendas.

    I think that Trump should say that since he was elected, approximately half the country wants to hear his perspective at press conferences and half probably wants the adversarial (lib) press. Therefore, he is going to adjust the attendees to be approx half from each camp.

    Then call from each camp alternatively when taking questions. It would be a far more informative press conference, and although the MSM would squawk, no thinking person could argue with this arrangement. Why should the press represented be 99 percent liberal just because press is 99 percent liberal? The voters obviously are not in that ratio or Trump would not be president.

    There are three problems in the Oval Office.
    Trump is not his own press secretary.
    Trump is not his own communications director for coordinating all media releases.
    Trump is not his own chief of staff.

    If he was all of those also, he would solve all his problems with the vulture press.

    When he gives pressers and rallies, he owns them.
    Because, in those situations, he functions as all those roles.

    So, the problem is Trump is so masterful as Trump that all his staff are Lilliputians in comparison.

    Even today, the bluster of McMaster seemed manic just describing what Trump has laid out as policy goals and relationships for the ME, NATO, Religious tolerance, Trade and getting allies to pay up. ‘America First’ seemed it would give McMaster a stroke.

    Trump never seems so stressed. And all McMaster was doing was reading the itinerary for next week. Huffing and puffing.

    It reminds me of Bruce Lee. “Be like Water”. Trump flows.

    Dear friends. I am Israeli and a Trump supporter. On the 22nd May Trump is coming to visit Israel for two days. He will be also visiting Masada and is likely to give a speech there. This is very exciting because Masada is a very special place. Masada is a mountain and an ancient fortress. (I will add a video later here to show you the beauty and power of this place). Some Israeli Special forces are doing their graduation ceremony there and they swear that “Masada will never fall again”. It has a very special meaning in Israel. The story is that in around 32 BC the Roman king built this place with very advanced water storage and systems and food storage. He wanted to have a safe place in case of trouble.
    When the Romans took over Israel about 1000 Jews escaped and managed to take this magnificent place. They fought and resisted the mighty Romans for about two years but the Romans built a slope of stones that reaches up to the top of the mountain ( you can see it at the beginning part of my video). The Jews realized they can’t win against that massive Roman army and they didn’t want to fall hostage and have their women abused and children become slaves. So they decided to die. But suicide is not permitted on Judaism so it was a problem. Eventually they killed each outher including women and children and the last one had to commit the sin and kill himself. In Israel it is a symbol of choosing death over slavary. We say “Masada will not fall again” and we mean we will fight to death and stay free. I now attach the video and after it a link that shows the plan for Trump.

    Dear fellow Treepers,
    My undergraduate degree major was in Journalism. I minored in Marketing (Public Relations degree). My livelihood was that as a marketing teacher at the beginning (vocational education-high school level). I retired as a marketing professor at an accredited university on the BBA level. Post retirement, I was an MBA Dean at a “for profit” university.
    I watched most of this but I could not endure it all the way through. These “Journalists” would have flunked out of the program at the accredited State University (not Ivy League) in which I earned my undergraduate degree. If one is an investigative reporter, one does NOT post ones opinion. Instead, one is objective and seeks the facts.
    God had this election. Please run from this negativity and please pray for President Trump and all he holds dear!
    Happy Weekend All,
    Deb

    About the “hacking”. Clear back in 2015, I read that in order to receive emails sent through SoS Hillary’s “unsecured server”, the State Dept had to drop their “firewalls” until the sent email pushed through to the State Dept.

    I know nothing about how these things work, but it seems to me this action would open portals into the entire federal governments “secured” computer system. As a result, our “hacking tools” were “hacked” with this access originating through that pesky “unsecured server” belonging to Hillary. How deep does this worm go?

    I would greatly appreciate any feedback on this issue. In other words, would dropping “firewalls” within the bowels of the “secured” State Dept’s computer system allow these portals to be opened to nefarious entities hanging out in that “unsecured server” that was located in Hillary’s basement.
