      Come on…The filibuster was set up to give the opposition a voice, not block legislation with 60 votes…Do they ever wonder why you had to continually speak…

      Do they feel we should have 60% in all elections…Why not? The Supreme Court has legalized gay marriage and called a mandate a tax….Who voted for that….

      We are suckers. Sure we could have single payer and you could take it away. You have to fight from a principled position or your always making excuses.

    FLORIDA — Officers rushed to the scene after multiple reports of a gunman at Orlando International Airport Tuesday.

    Orlando Police and Orange County Deputies have the scene contained at a rental car area in Terminal ‘A’.

    According to News13, the armed suspect ‘has threatened to do harm to himself and to others.’

    Passengers were diverted from the area.

    “I couldn’t make out the words but he was screaming really loud,” a witness told the Orlando Sentinel, “Everyone there told me right before this happened a man said to everyone ‘you’re going to need mental therapy after this’ then he pulled out a gun and everyone ran.”

    17yo “joined the jihad” asylum-seeker suspected of planning a suicide attack in Berlin has been arrested in the German state of Brandenburg.
    In April, a German court in the western city of Cologne convicted a 16-year-old Syrian refugee for planning to carry out a terror attack.

      Can they be forced to release information on an open investigation? I don’t think so – that’s probably one of the reasons it’s remained unsolved.

    Just watched/listened to Bill Mitchell. One of the people on is Adam Gingrich who had some interesting info. about who to expect for a new FBI Director (interviewed today) and some intelligent comments on T-Rex and the Paris Accord. Both of those discussions occurred in the second 1/2 hour. I recommend it. Encouraging.

    Hundreds of Iranian-backed militiamen, fighting alongside government troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad, are amassing near a U.S.-training base located near the country’s border with Iraq, the Defense Department confirmed Tuesday.

    Pro-Assad fighters supported by Tehran have begun conducting patrols near the southern Syrian town of At Tanf, which is home to a U.S. training camp for moderate Syrian militias battling the Islamic State, said Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis.

    American commanders and their Russian counterparts, deployed to Syria in support of the Assad regime, have designated At Tanf and the surrounding areas as a deconfliction zone, which bars any interference by any outside forces of coalition operations within the area.



    Guccifer 2.0: Game Over

    Metadata suggests it took only 30 minutes to go from a DNC tech/data strategy consultant creating documents to Guccifer2.0 tainting them – all occurring on a date that Guccifer2.0 claimed to be after he was locked out of the DNC Network – occurring on the same day that Guccifer2.0 emerged.

    Data found deeper in files now also demonstrates there was a misdirection effort, that, in its larger scope – seems to have been intended to discredit leaks by having leaks blamed on Russian hackers
    –This has all the research,contacts responses,confirmations and analysis. long read but good.

      ha ha ha.

      “Security” concerns? Why doesn’t he keep doing what he’s doing, and keep having it leaked by rogue intel agents?

      “Secrecy” concerns? He’s the president. And he’s probably getting pretty darn tired of the rogue intel agents disrespecting American security.

      You can’t make this stuff up. This is like the Kushner “back channel” stuff. OF COURSE he wants a back channel, because you people in the ‘front channel’ are crazy and are trying to start a war. Oh yeah, and the back channel seeking means there is no collusion.

      Leakers back at work. They are panicking now. Muh Russia and impeachment isn’t flying, to it’s back to “incompetent, devious Trump.”

      Like Sununu with Camarota today, people are growing weary of this laughable exercise.

    Has anyone noticed that any time Trump says something it has already been “discredited” by the press?

    “Today Trump said he is making America great again, a claim that has been largely discredited by the left because they never believed it was great to begin with.”

    But I disagree with their anti-Trump sentiment. Therefore, I hereby discredit it.

    I’ve enjoyed watching Liz Wheeler’s Tipping Point on OAN the past week. She just had a great interview with Corey Lewandowski. She asked him several questions, and you know what? She let him answer without interrupting. What a novel approach to interviews. At 26 years old, I believe she has a promising future in the Media.

      Hey…I said the same thing, months ago.

      Maybe Kudlow reads here.
      But I was told by other Treepers that it couldn’t happen that way, because a ‘tax cut bill’ falls into a different category and would have to be separate.

      And I think they were probably right about that.

    What Is the Washington Post Hiding About Its Jared Kushner Story?

    “The Washington Post editors refuse to publicly release the smoking gun ‘anonymous letter’ that serves as the foundation of their sensational charge that White House advisor Jared Kushner sought a secret, back-channel to Russian officials….To date, there has been no independent verification the letter is real or that WaPo’s description of its contents is accurate. The Washington Post editors also never explain why they withheld the letter.”

    John Oliver frequently uses his HBO show “Last Week Tonight” to run impassioned segments on the topic of net neutrality. He calls on viewers to comment on the topic at the FCC’s website during his 13-minute “rants” demanding the FCC commit to net neutrality, the Internet regulations enacted by Barack Obama. His viewers left many extremely racist comments against FCC chairman Ajit Pai, the first Indian-American to hold the post. John Oliver has not disavowed these racist attacks, despite repeated requests to do so.

    Further, what John Oliver has not admitted is that his “rants” were planted by a lobbyist for Google named Marvin Ammori. Ammori is the founder of the Ammori Group, a law firm and public policy firm based in Washington, D.C. and Silicon Valley, that lists Google as “the largest and most established client we counsel.”

    Ammori is also listed as president of the Fight For The Future Education Fund 501(c)3 board, which is a project of Hungarian billionaire George Soros.

    Citizen researcher Larry Kawa is pressing the government to release the contents of a taping system that is required to have been installed on Lynch’s government airplane.

    “General Dynamics installs the recorders in the planes,” Kawa told Big League Politics, referring to VoIP recorders that he said must be installed on airplanes like the government jet used by Lynch, where the conversation took place. “(Lynch) could not have un-installed them if she wanted to.”

    Kawa’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the NSA was denied, citing national security, but the NSA did not deny that the tape exists.

    I’m here to serve in this company of heroes until we force every leftist faculty member of academia to retire, until we bring to light the corruption and sickly pedophilia of every member of congress Republican or Democrat, until we rightfully take down every MSM organization and make them report actual news again. Until every radical Islamic organization is wiped from the face of the earth whether be from bombs or the embarrassment we’ll lob on the “losers”.
    I’ll be right here fighting the entire way, because you bet your ass the left is trying to do the same to us and even worse.
    The 2016 election was really just the beginning. The left hasn’t seen what we’re capable of yet. And when they do, we’ll take them down so fast they won’t know what hit them. The revolution is afoot and we’re at the front lines. Let’s go!!

    some comments:

    The reason it scares them so much is that unlike their soldiers :
    A. We’re not mercenaries. We’re not doing this for money. We’re true believers, and cannot be bought off. We’ll do this on our own time, at all hours, and there’s no way to know just how many of us there are.
    B. We’re not “part of the party”. This is also what scares the living shit out of the GOPe swamp, and globalists in general. You cannot shut us up or shut us down with political threats or backroom deals. There’s no “dirt collection” on our side vs. their side that can be used to set up a cold war framework.
    C. We’re extremely loyal, and if one of our own were to be taken out, we would only push that much harder. It’s literally at a point where it’s worse for them to try and “eliminate” us individually than to do nothing.
    D. Fighting us is expensive and ineffective. They have sank untold millions of dollars into trying to stop us….and it has accomplished nothing. They keep throwing good money after bad, and it is worse every time. In their world, all problems are solvable for sufficient amounts of expenditure of funds, and this one just will not be solved with money. It has to be bewildering them to the point of insanity. You literally could buy senate seats for what they’ve spent trying to stop us.

    I agree too. We are the red pill army of American loving Constitution enforcing people from all party’s, …. left … right …. center. We will Support Trump on a Republican Ticket because he will kick over the tables and drain the America hating swamp in Washington. We love Seth Rich, because this DEMOCRAT was one of US… he LOVED America. He fought for fair elections. He refused to tolerate the corruption of the swamp. We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will not stop. This is America. We are the people who are no longer silent.

    Comedy requires wit and the ability to observe truth. Our side has that in spades.

    (mine)-I think you could restock congress and the senate easily from here. They would meme themselves into office.This generation has what it takes.

    I just scrolled all the stories here on the treehouse from a 30,000 feet perpsective. Real news, real events, real history is being made everyday by Trump at the speed of Trump and NOWHERE is it being reported. Jaw dropping, unbelievable or mind boggling are all gross understatements. While I have appreciated this site since the moment I found it, tonight it has risen to a whole new level. It is with deepest gratitude and sincerety that I thank Sundance, administration and all the Treepers who put forth such effort and intellectual information, analysis and commentary. God bless you all.

      If you want to really have them opened more, then do a search on this site onTrayvon Martin and the articles Sundance wrote…It is the type of journalism found in few places and that is not an exaggeration…

      This site was the Treehouse during election as well…I’m not sure if you were here…We banded together to block out the insanity…I have found a bit too much linking to Fake News on some days now, but my prediction is after 6-8 months it will wear out. My guess is by August-October most will give up the Drudge and other muckrakers that twist their thoughts with Fake News links…

      This is one of my few sites. I listen to a few talk radio, Dobbs and a handful of others…

    Confused. Why is this guy part of Trump’s White House?

    Registered Democrat and White House Chief Economic Adviser, Gary Cohn shut down a proposal to crowd-fund the Mexican border wall, according to a new report by GotNews.
    Cohn felt that deciding to use wall bonds to finance the border wall through private financing would “upset House Speaker Paul Ryan and Congress”, despite bonds being “perfectly constitutional”.
    Back in March, Republican Congressman Don Young put forward an idea wherein the government could “sell bonds to finance the wall, and offer public finances 2.5% interest”.
    Based on public records from the New York state Board of Elections, and courtesy of GotNews, Cohn is still a registered Democrat.
