    FYI: It sounds like the presser starts again around the 8:00 mark of the video. Thanks Sundance 🙂

    Audio only so imagining the scene… the thought that sprung to my mind is that I hope they don’t waste money on providing parachute for FakeNews Media Hacks?

    Also.. I assume that the media following Trump overseas and lying about it, have to provide their own security?

    It seems that the Sundance thesis is there is only one factor, economics, and that is no doubt a large factor, however, I have found that there is never just one factor in any issue. In this case I would posit at least two more, control of outcome (to stay in dominance or in the circle of dominance), and second, Islam political Jihad, the following of Mohammed (CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood). There may be at least another such as pure power for power sake, possibly more.

    • Economics is universal and most powerful.

      Islam is central to Islamic states, but peripheral elsewhere until people PERSONALLY witness an existential threat kill or maim others close to them.

      Without the economics, the army falls apart. The billionaires who run Hollywood can survive losing tons of money… sure… but the actors aren’t going to take a 50% paycut because they support Hillary or whatever the hell.

      It always goes back to money.

      By the way, Trump’s been telling people this for 15 years.

    Spicer should require every single questioner to state their full name and organization they work for before he takes a question. That way the enemy self identifies themselves. The media office really needs to get much more agessive against these perveyors of VeryFakeNews who suffer delusions of grandeur.

      Yes I agree, good point.
      Enough with these fake news stories that don’t have a name attached to them.
      If they can’t sign their name to an article they’ve written, then the article should automatically be dismissed as propaganda and partisan speculation.
      I’m not buying ANY of their reasons for the author to be anonymous.
      The term “unnamed source” should be synonymous with “fake news”.

      I agree.
      I perceived that the presser after Trump gave that Judge P interview, in which he said he may stop the televised press conferences, was markedly more subdued and the press treated Spicer a little better. But then all those hit jobs happened each successful day. I think those WaPo and NYT hit pieces were timed more about trying to undermine Trump’s first overseas trip and his foreign policy. I really believe Hillary has already decided to run in 2020 and this is a choreographed effort, led by her, carried out by her donor bought media, owned Dem and GOP politicians (who will get cabinet positions), and deep state to undermine the public’s and foreign leaders’ confidence in this President. Hillary really believes that she will be viewed as the experience choice in 2020 after a chaotic Trump presidency
      This foreign trip for Trump was going to be monumental and it was very smart. The Hillary “resistance” was terrified that this trip was going to be a success.

    This is the last time I am going to comment on this website. I’ve enjoyed this web site a lot. I really think congress will throw Mr. Trump out of office. It won’t be justified, of course. But, life isn’t fair. As someone once wrote; ” There are trillions of dollars at stake.” I hope I’m wrong. If I am, I’ll come back and enjoy reading clear and precise information about media and governmental malfeasance and outright mendacity, about which I cannot do anything about.

I’m hoping for the best, but deep state gonna deep state, and I don’t see how Muhler will do anything by try and preserve establishment. What are you seeing that leads you to believe he will make public any of the true malfeasance which has gone on?

          They have already created something from nothing – they got special counsel appointed in the wake of false accusations and innuendo. Last week they were pushing for a special prosecutor, this week the chorus line is singing impeachment. They keep moving the ball down the field as they always seem to do.

          I’m saying if they have been willing to go to these lengths to get this far, do you really think manufacturing some ‘evidence’ to put the ball in the end zone is really a stretch? What I was asking is why Sundance seems so confident that Muhler will do the right thing and go after those that have actually carried out the misdeeds?

          I wrote my GOP congressman tonight and said that I expected him not only to publicly defend the President we voted for, but to also stand against those in the GOP who are frothing at the mouth to diminish him. Trump voters need some sort of collective call to action to push back against the haranguing of our President.

Remember this when you go vote next time and remember it is the left and the media who are screaming about Trump this-Trump that and causing the problems. Not one bit of remorse or concern for the taxpayers, but they sure will beg for your donations and your votes. Idiots one and all on the left. Remember it well.

    After reading our President Trump’s statement, I thought it certainly would be nice if we sent him some postcards, thank you cards or letters to let him know how greatfull we are and how we will continue to stand with him.

    I know he’s a tough, old bird, and can take quite a bit of arrows, but it never hurts to let someone who you care about know how much you appreciate them. We are all human, and a bit of humor can really bring up one’s spirit as well as words from the heart filled with kindness.

        I lost a close AA friend over the Trayvon shooting. I had previously taken him to the shooting range, and helped him get him Permit and pick out and buy a gun he liked.
        I had been lurking at the Refuge for about a year, then Zimmerman shot the black boy.
        I used the information I learned Here, to counter the Disinformation he got from the S. Fl. Enemedia.
        He disowned me for a while, and when he learned the Truth (what I had been Shareing with him from Sundance!), he started comin’ back around.
        I attributed our temporary unfriending to Enemedia, his Age (20yrs my senior), and his Race.
        If you Love, or think Highly of someone, never write them off completely.
        The Conservative Treehouse, has never intentionally mislead me.
        I proudly say, that my AA friend lurks here now, and Voted Trump!
        He was very excited for Us to go to the Inauguration.
        This was the First Time, in his 76 years, voting Republican!
        Now I’m tryin’ to keep him from goin’ Back to the Dim Side.
        Never Quit.
        And Never Give Up!
        Thank You All, at the Refuge!

    The calmness around Trump is WELL DOCUMENTED during times of ‘turmoil’. He gets calm. The reason is because he knows he’s in the right. Let me illustrate with a picture.

    The night President Trump was elected, as the results came in and it was clear that he had won, here is the picture that Dan Scavino took and posted to twitter of Trump’s reaction.

      President Trump knows the most important thing he has going for him is his intellectual capacity and refuses access to anything which may serve to block, cloud or limit that intellectual capacity. High emotion, whether positive or negative, clouds intellect. Drugs and alcohol cloud intellect. And in the picture of Trump facing his attacker also shows he favors “fight” over “flight” any day of the week.

      I identify very well with President Trump in this regard. I do not identify with this other “mannerisms” which many find horrifyingly objectionable, but I see right through all of that — it’s the kind of theater which makes the point to those with lower intellectual and analytical ways of seeing things.

      He is calm because it is necessary to remain calm. He is fearless because it is necessary to be without fear. He is “responsive” without being “reactive.”

    Does anyone other than PDJT and his very closest advisors really know what is going on?

    I do know that your President has been written off a thousand times. Yet he stands taller than ever.

    He has terrific friends around him. Lou Dobbs, Hannity, Mike Huckabee.

    Cory Lewandowski was on Tucker tonight and was tremendous in his support or PDJT.

    My instincts are usually pretty good, and I am comfortable in saying that should, and that is a highly unlikely should. PDJT be irrepreably damaged by this, or any other fiasco. The U.S. will see real violence, and a vociferous condemnation your entire system of government.

    The hatred for those hurting your President and his family is palpable.

    Perhaps maybe one good thing about the Mueller appointment is at press conferences when 99.9% of the questions continue to be about this faux story, they can very rightfully say, “as you are aware, that is an investigation independent from the White House.

    The Deep State will never stop trying to remove, or at least hamstring, PDJT.

    But they fail to appreciate just how difficult it will be to convince the public that a republican president would in any way compromise national security.

    The Dems have a long standing reputation for being soft on national defense and, by extension, national security. Conservatives know this – so do Independents.

    Recall that after the fall of the USSR, the KGB archives were found to contain details on Ted Kennedy’s ACTUAL collusion with the Russians to thwart President Reagan.

    The Left is merely projecting onto POTUS what they have done before and would do again, if it served to elevate and then keep them in power.

    I am “bet my firstborn” certain that no one that President Trump has added to his team would EVER give away the store to any of our adversaries, foreign or domestic.

    This investigation will in the end be a nothingburger with respect to Mr Trump.

    However…

    If the Left (and GOPe) makes the mistake of impeaching and removing PDJT, they will have effectively pushed 60+ million citizens into a corner. We voted for PDJT because we knew that we were about one term of a President Hillary from losing our beloved country.

    Remove Mr Trump, and I believe that we’ll see a significant percentage of that 60+ million march on DC in order to physically remove the Left and GOPe from power, citing the following as their reason for doing so:

    “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations,… it is their (the people’s) right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government…”

    So, go ahead – remove the President from office – the result will be your physical removal from yours.

    Go ahead – give us an excuse counter your efforts with the same tactics you use on us – go ahead – MAKE OUR DAY.
