    Hello fellow Treepers.
    I just got off the phone with the Michigan GOP office and have some interesting information (speculation/inside rumors) from the gentleman I had a discussion with regarding disbursement of donations (wanted to ensure money I donated did not go to Amash or Upton).
    Scuttlebutt is that Amash is not running for re-election (explains his exploding anti-Trump behavior since he’s in a pretty lib area) because he’s planning to run for a governorship. At least it would keep his crap local if it comes to pass.
    Upton apparently thinks he can graduate to a Senate seat so that rumor needs monitoring.

    Trying this again from the last page….fixed this time!!

    Can’t blog when you’re creating. This is the second chapter in my Weeper story. The first, Just a Dream, dealt with the “what”, this one is the “why”. There will be a third one, in due time, but that story is still unfolding. I “think” I’m getting the hang of this

    Tryin’ to Keep Up With You

    People born with a passion for reading and writing are consumed by both daily. I don’t know many, if any, who do one and not the other. The two fit together, like hand and glove. You read to learn the stories of others, and you write to teach readers yours. I consume reading material like food, and while I’ve “dabbled” with writing, I’ve only recently been able to share it.

    Writers each have their own style of writing. A way with which they tell their story, the way they get their point across, to captivate and teach their readers. It called prose, or their “voice”. Those that write in the same speaking voice have an automatic connection. Reading the words of someone writing in your voice is the most joyful thing in the world. Favorite authors, poets, columnists, posters. You read what they say, whether you understand the topic or not, because you understand their language, and you learn. You get what they “say”, even if that isn’t what they “said”.

    So what does this have to do with PDJT? I was on the train from the beginning, but I was skeptical. I was trying to validate what I felt and could not find anyone to help me. Enter The Treehouse. While searching for information on his rally in Baton Rouge in February 2016, I stumbled here, and never left. Every post, even the ones that came before me, I read…..as well as the comments. I fell in love with this book, and all of you were my favorite “characters” in it, with Sundance as the Master Storyteller, and PDJT as the Hero.

    I wanted to join in, but couldn’t. When I reached a point where I felt I had to, I sent an email that was never posted. I posted it the other day. Sundance did a post that night, on North Korea, and out I came. It didn’t say….come join us, but it did to me. Let’s call it a “wink”. My job then was to figure out how to introduce myself, so on Easter Sunday, on a very quiet open thread, late in the afternoon, I made my first “real” post. People saw it, liked it, and welcomed me. It wasn’t until the next morning, when I went to the new open thread and saw that fleporeblog, one of my many idols, had pulled my post to the first page, that this game was really on. I got my bullhorn and started making noise. Wolfmoon’s, a second idol, rollercoaster is the journey I’ve been on over these last few weeks. Sometimes it overwhelms me. Half the time, I have no clue what is going on, and the other half I’m having the time of my life. No one achieves greatness, in their heart, without overcoming challenges. PDJT is our example of that.

    When you have a talent, but have no audience, it goes untapped. It causes you to be depressed, because you have things to give, to share, but no one to receive them. I think I’ve found an audience, at least for now, here at my beloved Treehouse. Supporting PDJT’s “dream”, using mine.

      What a sound choice. Kudos. What sense does it make for anyone to “put on” the symbols of a religion that is not their own? Religious symbols are not part of a polite go-along-to-get-along…willingly putting them on your person has spiritual ramifications. Should these visitors enter a Mosque, yes, but government dignitaries visiting outside of a mosque, no. There are only a handful of female government representatives that have not put the flag of Mahomet on their head in an Islamic country.

    ATTENTION MUH RUSSIAN BOT COMRADES:

    To the best of my knowledge, the only evidence that “The Russians hacked the election” and/or that “Trump colluded with the Russians to deny Queen Hillary her coronation” is the “Russian Dossier.” It contained a wild tale of urinating Russian hookers and was mocked to death while it was being debunked.

    We will never see an actual real investigation based on facts. That’s because any competent attorney working for Trump will flush this to the surface. It’d make those pushing for an investigation look like incompetent clowns engaging in a sham and a con, which is exactly what they are doing. The media sure doesn’t want this to get to the public either, as it would make them look even more hack-like and fake news-like that they already do.

    No, it’ll be an ongoing public smear job with “sources” and “intelligence experts” who “allege” yada yada yada. Hopefully, and i think it’ll happen at some point. Something unforeseen will put an end to the sickening Russian nonsense.

    The LaRouche PAC folks have a personal beef with Special Counsel, Mueller. He was a leader of the “Get-LaRouche Task Force” which framed-up Lyndon LaRouche on false charges in 1988.

    https://larouchepac.com/20170519/things-will-work-out-just-fine?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20170519-daily&utm_content=20170519-daily+CID_a498e62366500ac4c2cb1eb8159abe0e&utm_source=CampaignMonitorEmail&utm_term=Things%20Will%20Work%20Out%20Just%20Fine

    From the article:

    Wednesday’s appointment of Robert Mueller as a “special counsel” was a fraud, a farce and an outrage from the get-go. To begin with, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s order starts out by stating it as fact that Russia interfered in the U.S. elections—even though no evidence of that has ever been presented. And then, the man named as “special counsel,” former FBI Director Robert Mueller, has a long record of proven corruption. He was a leader of the “Get-LaRouche Task Force” which framed-up Lyndon LaRouche on false charges in 1988, after years of efforts. Then he was named FBI Director days before the Sept, 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and spent the next twelve years as FBI Director covering up the evidence of the Saudi-British authorship of those attacks.

    A Beautiful New Phase of Human History —Do You Know About It?

    On Sunday and Monday of this week, history will show, we entered a new phase space of human history. If you are able to fully appreciate what just happened at the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing, China, you are jumping with joy. Most Americans, however, have been kept in the dark about the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by mankind, connecting all continents through infrastructure — tunnels, bridges, rail — and lifting billions out of poverty. Instead, we are besieged, daily, by a news media apparently determined to take down a President, rip this country apart, and sour every aspect of the human spirit. There is something, far, far superior happening in this world, and the United States has been invited to be a part of it. If you haven’t already, please avail yourself of this short video overview of the Belt and Road Project.

    It’s a work to be proud of, one of the best.
    You type it all up, then paste it all in.
    You wait forever, but it doesn’t appear.
    Then you know. You’re caught. You’re in the Spam Bin.

    Why would this happen to you at this time?
    You pound your keyboard and scream and shout.
    You were good, but not careful enough, ‘cause
    The Spam Bin’ll getcha if you don’t watch out!

    You beg for help to get out of this trap.
    Ad Rem will help you, but where is she at?
    You wait and wait but there’s no reply.
    She’s off somewhere with her puddy tat.

    Finally, she’s back and with some kind words
    Has released you from that perilous place
    Where posters go that don’t follow the rules
    To stay and suffer in utter disgrace.

    So heed this warning, posters everywhere,
    There are rules here that you shouldn’t flout.
    But be advised, even though you’re careful,
    The Spam Bin’ll getcha if you don’t watch out!

        Georgia (660,708), North Carolina (561,811), and Illinois (542,065) lead the 28 states studied in potential duplicated voter registrations across state lines.

        The study shows that more than 916,000 people appear to be registered multiple times within their state of residence. North Carolina accounts for 90 percent of potential intrastate duplicates.

        Guess I can stop wondering how Roy Cooper(D) beat Pat McCrory(R) in NC. The margin of Cooper’s victory was small. It was less than 10,000 votes iirc.

          Had a coworker, ( nice guy, but deluded dem) was in on
          voter registration around Rockdale County, GA. He was
          trying to get out the vote (for Obama, that’s where the
          deluded part comes in).

          He went to many listed addresses in the county for
          registered voters to knock on doors. The homes
          were vacant, the occupants had long moved, or
          the persons listed had gone on to meet their reward.
          It happened numerous times a day, in a county that
          wasn’t heavily populated by metro Atlanta standards
          at the time ( Fewer then 100,000 persons, adjacent
          Dekalb and Gwinnett Counties have over 3/4 million
          apiece.) He knew the dems were lying, but he was
          still intent on getting the one elected. This was all
          back before the 2008 elections. The dead have been
          voting in Georgia for decades.

    Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.

    They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:

    Here is CNN with a ridiculous article attempting to discredit President Trump:

    Travel ban architect writing Trump’s speech on Islam
    The author of President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban, which targeted people from six-majority Muslim countries, is the principal speechwriter for the President’s speech on Islam in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.
    (…)
    The official said the speech has been put together through a collaborative process inside the White House, but that Miller was the primary author.

    The speech, which will be given in front of about 50 Muslims leaders, could be a flashpoint in Trump’s eight-day, five country trip. Trump has long derided Islam, proposed banning all Muslim immigration into the United States during the campaign and is expected to use the term “radical Islamic terrorism” throughout the speech in Saudi Arabia, the cradle of the 1.6 billion-member religion.

      We shall see if the Saudis really are serious about this… given that they are the originators of Taliban, AQ, Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR etc etc which all are rooted in Wahhabism. They literally have an entire division of their kingdom devoted to Muslim Brotherhood type stuff.

    two other general thoughts –
    something i’ve not seen discussed so much – obama was a true secular god to the liberal sheep
    as far as your average, out of control Trump hating and dopey “resistance” goes, that is the PRIMARY factor, no?

    also SNAKE deep state operative lindsey graham on Mueller yesterday –
    “this is a CRIMINAL investigation now”
    No it’s not you Trump hating liar – Rosenstein took pains to clarify that

    REALITY

    Early morning raids end in arrests of nearly two dozen MS-13 gang suspects!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-ms13-sweep-20170517-story.html

    From the article:

    Twenty-one people accused of being part of the notoriously violent MS-13 gang were arrested Wednesday as federal and local investigators forced their way into homes and businesses across Los Angeles County in a pre-dawn sweep that came as a result of a more than two-year racketeering investigation.

    The detainees were among 44 gang suspects facing federal charges — including murder and racketeering — listed in a 41-count federal indictment unsealed Wednesday, officials said. Twenty suspects were already in custody, and three are considered fugitives.

    Acting U.S. Atty. Sandra Brown said the operation against MS-13 was the largest ever conducted in Los Angeles and is expected to “deal a critical blow to its leadership.”

    Even the sad state of California can’t stop all the winning!

    There is one good piece of news. The Koch Brothers are funding a multi million dollar campaign to pass tax reform. That should get the Rino’s who get donations from the Koch Brothers to vote for tax reform. The Koch Brothers are also paying for commercials pushing for tax reform. If President Trump passes even tax cuts, he should win in 2020. Economic recovery means a lot more to people than rumors in the press. As James Carville so famously said “It’s the economy, stupid.”

    I’ve been thinking about Joe Biden a lot today.

    What a hoser. He didn’t do anything but creep around all day and now he thinks he should/could be president. Compared to Trump, all action all the time, Biden is a toddler,
    Completely embarrassing.

    But I bet if we held the election today, 60 million voters would vote him in.

    So here is my idea: fire Pence. Replace him with Gingrich immediately. charter Newt with being the real bad arse. He is the best at taking down the press , while trump governs. Hire Pence as chief along staff.

    The cries for impeachment will come to a halt tomorrow.

    Pence is far to palpable for the establishment. Nothing personal.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Our POTUS is winning the world over. Do not doubt us.

    From Russia With Love – Russia’s take on Erdogan’s recent visit to see our POTUS.

    Erdogan checked in Washington
    “There is no doubt that Recep Tayyip Erdogan came away from Washington on Wednesday with egg on his face”

    “Whatever the case, it’s Moscow and Washington in Syria and over Turkey. Period.”
    http://www.pravdareport.com/world/asia/19-05-2017/137772-erdogan_checked-0/

    Make no mistake. We are not besties with Russia. Russia is our economic competitor, not our BFF.

    But Russia is laughing hard at our Very Fake News, and appears to quietly marvel at Our POTUS’ ability to rise above the noise and Git ‘Er Dun.

    Watch the Middle East closely the next few days. You will witness history being made, once again, by the Master Builder and Negotiator.

    And the Very Fake News? They R Dun.

    Last I checked we won the election, so I’ve decided to tune out most of the noise. Going on almost a full week with Treehouse being my main news source. No more BB, or anything else really. A little Rush here and there, and that’s it.

    I will no longer participate in clickbait, even if it’s for sites that are on the “good side”. Will no longer read anything that has the words “Washington Post” or “New York Times” associated with it. As soon as I see anything with the word “Russia” attached, I know to instinctively avert my gaze. You can figure that accounts for about 75% of what is out there.

    If I’m concerned that I’m missing something important by ignoring every panic inducing headline, I just ask myself some simple questions. Is Trump still the sitting president? Have impeachment proceedings started? If not, will Trump most likely still be the sitting president tomorrow? Are impeachment proceedings likely to begin tomorrow? Knowing the answers to these questions saves me a lot of stress and wasted time following rabbit trails of news-o-sphere. I feel much better overall.

    This place is a great filter. If Sundance isn’t writing about it, or if it isn’t being talked about in the daily thread, I’m not interested. The media and the rest of the left wants us to forget we won, I’m not playing along anymore.

    It would appear Israel is with Our POTUS. Ignore the Very Fake News. Here is some Truth.

    “The bilateral summit on Saturday comes with Saudi leaders rebuilding crucial ties with Washington after feeling that Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama tilted too much toward Tehran.”

    “The summit is part of preparations for a new US strategy mobilising the Muslim world against the Sunni jihadists of the Islamic State group, as well as against Iran-backed groups such as Lebanon-based Hezbollah, said Mustafa Alani, a senior adviser to the Gulf Research Centre.”

    ““We are witnessing now a change in the tone, change in policy” from Trump, he said.”

    Take a deep breath. The swamp creatures are in retreat (for a short while). The air is now clear again and the darkness retreats. There’s a palpable feeling of freedom again. Please keep up the prayers though.

    There’s a Gateway Pundit article today saying the Dems did some polling about impeachment and they seemed to get such an angry blowback that they decided to back off. Their media slaves are also changing their headlines accordingly. On the Republican Party front, Richard Baris of PPD Polling (the best of the last election cycle and he’s a good guy) says his new polling shows a big hit against the Republicans. Voters apparently see no reason to vote for them anymore, he says. This is guaranteed to scare the GOPe and you may see them tepidly showing support for President Trump. This would be Ryan’s 2nd coup attempt that FAILED. Sadly, I once thought he’d make a great VP. He’s just another swamp creature now.

      One thing I think about (note the clever avoidance of the word “concerned”) is if enough Republicans make themselves distasteful to the voters, the effect could be the election of a Dem majority in the Senate (or House, I suppose). Loss of majority in either House or Senate would throw a big monkey wrench into the wheels of progress, but would be a victory for the Uniparty.

        Democrats would view regaining power as a mandate for impeachment. We need to be careful for what we ask when we know who Democrats are and how Democrats are committed not just to being our opposition but working for our destruction. We need to start going to Republican meetings, getting the right people elected to local and state offices, and campaigning for the primaries.
