          Jl, wife rich and money buys most anything in so many countries. Macron seems typical useless Frenchman to me and like most socialists/communists, open borders is acceptable no matter how many of your fellow mankind are killed. EU is owned by muslims and so sad to see it. On the other hand both the French and English created a lot of hate in the MidEast since, I believe the 18th Century thru part of the 19th, so their reward is being allowed in to murder them. Karma ain’t nice but effective.

              True that. We built our first Navy post-Revolution to fight the Barbary Pirates, Barbarian Pirates, Muslim Raiders & Slavers, sound familiar anyone? If Colonialism happened after that, it wasn’t just envy of the US, they already had over a thousand years of Muslim Monstosities killing and enslaving them, endlessly seeking to take their lands and Religion. Same people, same hate.

                Thanks, last 3 posters. I do get tired of the victims of islamic jihad (and Hijra – conquest by migration) being blamed, when this has been going on for centuries. Any country not islamic is the “House of War” and must be conquered. If anything, we should be learning from Europe rather than blaming them for the position the globalist elitists have put them in. We were so close – only the last election saved us, and the danger is still there..always.

          Because people prefer to listen to fantasies than face reality. Neville Chamberalin returned from Munich with a worthless piece of paper in his hands to a heroes welcome and “Peace in our time”. 11 months later Hitler invaded Poland and WW II in Europe started.

          The majority want the party to go on until there’s a disaster that forces them to face hard facts. I saw this most perfectly when George W. Bush was trying to reform social Security. When asked by a liberal woman why we should do this and answering that the system was going to go bankrupt in 25 years. She replied, What’ll that matter to me, i’ll be dead”. That her children will have too pay the bill was lost on her.

    The PRESS better be very careful with their two questions today after the major revelation about the Russian lawyer!

    It is all falling apart right in front of their eyes! It is actually a glorious sight to behold. These creatures of the devil thought all along last year that there was no way in HELL that our Lion would win the presidency. They were so confident that every illegal act they did was without thought of ever getting caught. This latest example takes the cake. This woman was a part of their scheme to have our president prosecuted and his name and family destroyed once Satan’s wife on earth won the WH. I have no doubt in my mind that they were going to go after DJT to destroy him and kill anyone from outside the “Establishment” from ever running for the presidency again. What Don Jr. did a few days ago has completely paralyzed them. This bastard, in their mind, would never ever release the entire content of the emails and the content of the conversation. They thought they could play this out for as long as they wanted.

    Now the boomerang effect has taken hold in less than 48 hours after the release by Don Jr. We have the fact that this Russian woman that “Nooooo speaaaakkkkkk Englishhhhhh” sitting in a congressional hearing with the then Ambassador to Russia (Barry’s appointee). We now know that Loretta “Lets Go Hot” Lynch’s DOJ approved her visa request. This woman becomes the newest nuclear bomb for these morons. If the DOJ gave, the DOJ can take away! If they bring her in to tell her that they are revoking her visa and putting her on the next flight back to Russia where Vlad the Impaler will be waiting her arrival, she will sing like it is nobody’s business.

    This video talks about us Deplorables and what SD describes as our “Cold Anger”

    http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/341788-exclusive-doj-let-russian-lawyer-into-us-before-she-met-with-trump

    From the article linked above:

    The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

    This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.

    Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Trump Jr., Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearingon Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.

    The Moscow lawyer had been turned down for a visa to enter the U.S. lawfully but then was granted special immigration parole by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for the limited purpose of helping a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, her client, defend itself against a Justice Department asset forfeiture case in federal court in New York City.

        Call me crazy but there seems to be a pattern with the media and the left that they go after Pres. Trump in ways that are so obviously going to be found to be false. One time I would buy as dumb accident, but it seems to be a weekly occurrence now.

        Why do they keep deliberaely putting themselves in a bad way by letting these fake stories dominate the news only to watch them fizzle like a used up sparkler? If they are truly this obsessed and stupid, then great for us. They deserve what they get in spades and they will get it quickly every time. But if they are purposely releasing these attacks knowing they will be exposed in short order to their extreme detriment, what is their actual agenda with it all? I mean it only took one day for someone to post the pic of the lawyer sitting behind that guy testifying to Congressional committee or whatever it was. Did they think no one would find it? Really? Or did they plan for it all to fall apart and to what end? Clog up the news cycle? Create a false perception and characterization that lingers in the public mind about the first family and this administration? Make the repubs shun Pres. Trump’s agenda even more? Help the Dems in 2018? (not a good way to do that).

        What is the enemy doing really????

          cjzack they may not pay us enough to get into their heads! You have asked some incredibly insightful questions. I ask them myself as well. My brother continues to tell me that they still think they have power over the masses. That even though it will blowup, they got it out there first and have left the impression. I also think they can’t say anything positive about our President. The problem for them is that in everything he does, he is getting incredible results and has base loves him more today than yesterday. How can you talk about the economy, international relations, healthcare, immigration etc when the results are showing that Trumpism is far far superior to their messiah! 24 hrs is a lot to kill each day when you take Muh Russia away!

            Remember that towards the end, God hardened Pharaoh’s heart, because the time of judgment was at hand. What Pharaoh and his advisors had lived through already would have constituted manu major “duh!” moments for a rational person, but Pharaoh and his advisors were blinded by their own arrogance (and by God, who had appointed that time to judge them). Many people do not realize that each of the plagues represented things that the Egyptians worshipped. Jehovah’s kingship was incompatible with their world view.

            I guess what I’m suggesting is that I strongly suspect it is God’s time to judge all of this. Judgment has already started. Before it is over, there will be legal tribunals that will be must-see TV.

            We should be praying for the honest and faithful people in our government, from President Trump down, that God will give them grace and favor and uphold them during the days and months to come, as if this is correct, the shaking will continue (as it must).

          It’s quite simple actually
          There was a time when these stories were consumed part and parcel without any real questions.
          With the explosion of social media we are able to see it quite clearly as if we’ve developed an enhanced sense. Eyes have been opening hence the term “woke”
          The media has been e posed and are no longer our primary source for news. The problem for them is that like a huge lumbering train they haven’t figured it out yet and it will take time for them to adapt or die. I’m praying on the latter.

          They have never, ever, ever, ever, in any meaningful way, had anyone, other than Reagan, not only fight back, but punch 10X as hard. They have always gotten away with the lies and propaganda and there have never been any consequences for their duplicity. 11/8/16 was a game changer and they have never transitioned from their decades long dominance to a new game with new rules. Hence all the constant face plants.

          Re media motive: It’s all about perception. We know nothing they accuse Trump of doing is based in fact, and so do they, but repeated often enough, accusations take on a life of their own. Globalist lackeys have created and are attempting to maintain a PR problem for the president, because regardless of the absence of any real wrongdoing, a PR problem is a real problem. What they didn’t anticipate was Trump’s own PR nous and agility in side-stepping them.

      Thanks so much for your great analysis. If I can add this:
      It may well be that “Vlad the Impaler” is waiting for Ms. Natalia to be booted out of the United States to return to Russia—without completing the “task” that I believe she was entrusted with: to lay the groundwork for President Trump to be removed from office.
      But it ALSO may well be that Ms. Natalia will be punished for her lack of task completion in a very “KGB way”—something like, for example, some POLONIUM slipped into her tea here in the U.S….

      Flep– you do such great research- thank you. I wanted to get your take on an issue has been nagging at me. When President Trump was at one of the debates, he stated, that if he were President, Hillary would be in jail. People cheered as she deserves to be in jail. Based on the LAW. He said he would be OUR LAW and Order President. Then he walked that back and said ‘ she had been through enough”. Then and now I strongly disagreed with that position, to me that was like saying a murderer should not have to go to jail because the trial was too stressful. I do think this was a major mistake because it was such a strong statement. In light of the treasonous behavior of the Democrat party, and in light of the criminality of Hillary Clinton et al– do you believe he should have said look, if there is evidence that she violated the law, then the court of LAW should decide punish her ? What am I missing here?

        The corruption in the swamp runs deep and has penetrated entirely too far. We didn’t get into this mess overnight (it took decades) so we can’t expect to get out overnight either.

        There are way too many judges that are activist and/or entirely too liberal who cannot be trusted to rule fairly. If effort is made to prosecute certain criminals too soon, they may wind up making their escape with the help of others with low character.

        There is lots of clean-up that needs be done before one could hope to successfully prosecute some of these criminals. Making a move too soon can lead to failure. Besides, biding time helps to lure criminals into a false sense of security.

        I know it is hard to be patient, but I trust that the results will be well worth it. In the meanwhile, I would recommend praying for PDJT and all his appointees and all who work for him. Also pray to make PDJT enemies even more ridiculous than they already are! And then remind your congress critters and senators that if they will not support PDJT, that you will vote for someone who will.

        Great question! There is a piece of me that thinks he wants her to run again in 2020 where he will destroy her by winning 43+ states and the popular vote. If that is the case, he has to leave her hanging for now. Plus as sickening as she is, he and AG Sessions have their eyes on Barry and his minions right now. I think if HRC doesn’t run or loses the nomination, than all bets are off. He would have tremendous cover in his second term to nail all of them because regrettably their won’t be a third term.

        Both men are intelligent enough to allow the military of both countries to have their deserved honor be the emphasis of the visit and will not be seduced to upstaging it by uttering political gotchas for the cameras.

        A credit to both men for their wisdom.

          Considering that Sgt. Alvin York and Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, along with their brothers in arms pretty much won the war for the allies in a matter of months after entering, France would have had nothing to commemorate, other than having become part of the Prussian Empire, without the USA. For that matter, if the USA and her military, active duty and retired, wanted to participate in a commemoration of their forebears’ valiant deeds and sacrifices on French soil, invited or not, any Fwench resistance would be as futile as their silly Maginot Line.

      Yes, I have been guilty of dissing Macron with great pleasure, but Richard Grennell, nominated for a diplomatic position to NATO I believe and a staunch supporter of PDJT, is telling us there is value to this meeting.

      It isn’t just flying overseas to have lobster at the Eiffel Tower and show off our lovely First Lady. PDJT thinks he has found or can find some areas where he and Macron can work together.

      One theory I saw today is that France is aware of their position as Germany’s poodle and they aren’t happy with that and are looking to strengthen their relationship with the US for some leverage in dealing with Merkel.

      I have no idea, I’m not bright enough or knowledgeable enough to know what is up and why, but if PDJT thinks there is value to pursuing this alliance, then I say go for it Mr. President.

    Good presser. Trump is a master at this. Simply a master. He’s what presidents should be. He thinks logically, and knows what he wants, and communicates it clearly.

    Macron needs Trump. Merkel and the EUSSR will eat him alive, if he has to face them alone. Trump can give him options and leverage, which he’d need if he’s to make significant changes, which France desperately needs. And it gives Trump leverage over the EU and Merkel and the UK, which is still trying to jettison May and the globalist EUcratic banksters and elites, who have a stranglehold there. France has never liked that, and could provide Trump help in eroding their influence.

    This trip is another Trump masterstroke. The imagery is spectacular, it makes friends, and I’m guessing some solid work is getting done. Nice to have a president who can think on his feet, and grab opportunities on the fly, like this one.

      You are right. This has been France’s policy ever since deGaulle. Then France tried to play both the US and the USSR, now France definitely needs a friend in the US to balance the might of Germany. France’s economy is imploding – and one reason for that is the fact that France is tied to the D-Mark (or rather the German economy) via the Euro. Ever since the EMU (European Monetary Union) was instigated there has been a cold war between France and Germany who is going to run the common currency. That fight is going to be even more serious now when both France and Germany are talking about a common eurozone budget and a Euro finance minister.

      President Trump is definitely the man to find an opportunity in such a situation.

He also seemed to take a strong stance on ISIS in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Mali (where the French are fighting). He never responded to the border wall of Muslim ban and most importantly in my mind is that he backed our President for trying to work with Russia in Syria and asking China to do more than they have to date with NK.

OUR President TRUMP has shown himself to be a fighter and a doer. You cannot call him a slacker. He gets things done and expects results, therefore he gets results. People want to emulate his work ethic, because they see IT WORKS! Both in government and out. EVERYTHING he does is $UCCE$$FUL.

      Think about it i terms of all of the firsts we have achieved with President TRUMP In less than six months. Think about the stock market. The pipelines projects. Coal miners. Beef in China. The list is ENDLESS.

The reporter asked about Trump’s comments about Paris not being safe among other things. The Don came out just fine, defused the tension and cleared the air. Political judo at its finest.

    If you only have time to watch a little bit, watch that bit. Just great.

      Indeed, a salient part of the presser to bring up, Trump’s incredible expert diffusion of a potential rough, but truthful campaign comment, reminds us why Trump is a billionaire and won the election. And expert footwork while being jet lagged.

    Macron ignored the “question” about “Muslim ban” and the Wall… or did I miss his answer?

    He was very polite and respectful. Whether fake or sincere, it was the right tone. Good for Macron.
    There was no confrontation on display which is probably driving libtards mad.

    Trump was wise to lavish praise on everyone and everything. Taking the lumps out. And not giving the media their sound bites. The real action is taking place behind the closed doors, as it should be.

      Macron knows who pulls his strings, but there is no way that the Trump charm did not win over Macron’s and the French people’s hearts.

      But remember the story of the frog and scorpion.
