    The threats to sue Trump is he cancels DACA are mere cases of political virtue signaling. Any person with a brain in their head who’s been following the Obama Administration’s legal challenges with DACA know that the case will be destroyed in the courts.

    More political grandstanding from the Left.

      It surely would have been destroyed if Texas had sued, but now it will be in a court with an activist judge preselected by the left.

      Remember how these bozos kept declaring that the President has no authority to protect us by halting refugees traveling from terrorist nations?

      Watch them both declare it to be a constitutional act by Obama, and at the same time rule that Trump has no authority to end it, or to send them back.

      It will be years before they get put in their place by the Supreme Court.

      And there won’t be a countervailing precedent because Texas did not do to DACA what they did to DAPA.

        Good points. You’re right, the Left may win in nutty areas like the 9th Circuit. But I doubt they could win in SCOTUS. Obama’s action was way beyond the scope, it would seem.

    Donald Trump – “Take the oil”

    “The US will provide an air support to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the expected advance against ISIS in the province of Deir Ezzor, Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend, the commander of the US-led anti-ISIS coalition in Iraq and Syria told reporters via a video teleconference from Baghdad.”

    “The US general said that the final battle against ISIS will take place in the Middle Euphrates River Valley, which includes the oil-rich countryside of the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor.”

    “A large part of the Deir Ezzor city is besiged by ISIS terrorists…Washington and US-backed forces clearly aim to seize oil fields in the Deir Ezzor countryside.”
    https://southfront.org/us-vows-provide-air-support-kurdish-led-forces-advancing-deir-ezzor/

    Now there is a man of his word. How refreshing.
    No worries. All was coordinated with Russia, who is onboard with our strategy, according to RT.

  5. I know that ethics are not taught by parents these days but this is something my mother drilled into me. I went to the grocery store and purchased two boxes of Macaroni the lady said the name brand is buy one get one free so you will save money. I swapped them out. When I loaded the groceries in the car I was looking at the receipt realised she had removed one of the original boxes of macaroni and a large bag of wide noodles. The difference was two bucks more or less to my favour.

    I took the macaroni and the noodles back in and had them correct the difference. That two bucks did not belong to me.

    Just like those dreamers! This country does not belong to them, once of the age of majority they must realize that, and apply for a legal entry or leave. It’s basic ethics.

        Just read this piece on Kushner that one of Wictor’s followers posted in a reply to that tweet stream.

        Now I know why Trump trusts Kushner and I know why Bannon hates Kushner. Kushner was the guy who Bannon pretended to be. The guy who helped put Trump over the top.

        And so when push came to shove and Bannon couldn’t get along with “Mr Perfect” (among other Bannon failings), Bannon was always going to go. Not just because Kushner is family, but because Kushner was actually in on the action early whereas Bannon came in late yet was trying to hog the glory for himself.

        I had no idea about Kushner at all, like what he actually did or does. Now I feel a lot better about him and his role.

          Interesting article, a bit too gushy for my taste but some good info.

          But I did not like his remark that his political affiliation is To Be Determined!

          “In his political affiliation, he defines himself thus: “To be determined. I haven’t made a decision. Things are still evolving as they go.” He adds: “There’s some aspects of the Democrat Party that didn’t speak to me, and there are some aspects of the Republican Party that didn’t speak to me. People in the political world try to put you into different buckets based on what exists. I think Trump’s creating his own bucket–a blend of what works and eliminating what doesn’t work.”

            Lot of good stuff there, I agree. And I didn’t know any of it.

            Yeah, Kushner sounds a lot like Trump himself on politics — more pragmatist than ideologue. But there are hints he’s GOP, as the author points out.

I thought that’s why folks liked Trump — you know, because he is not UNIPARTY? Did I miss something…..OK for Trump not to be an ideologue, but his advisors all need to be ideologues?

    I don’t agree with everything Thomas Wictor. He doesn’t provide enough substance sometimes to back up his conclusion. Trump won because Deplorables and Americans of all walks came out in droves to volunteer and help out the vote. Please let’s not assume 100 people did it all. If JK indeed run the campaign, it felt disorganized and messy. We have to not assume one individual was some brain child behind a massive national win! This by no means diminishes JK’s efforts but please no ungrounded conclusions because evidence has to match our experience, and it didn’t. The worst is to assume incorrectly and lose future elections on it.

    We need all hands on deck, on state level for 2018 and 2020! Thank you for listening.

              from Fox News: During his two terms in office, Obama – himself a graduate of Colombia University and Harvard Law School – filled his administration with Ivy League brethren. From Harvard’s faculty alone, Obama recruited Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power and top economic aide Lawrence Summers to name just a few. Of the 22 cabinet-level positions in Obama’s White House, 13 of them are held by people with either undergraduate or graduate degrees – or both – from an Ivy League school.-

        Honestly, please save it. My message is that it was Americans on the ground, not 100 people hired by JK who cinched the presidency. If you were around at the time, you would be aware here on the threads that locals were expressing there was confusion from head quarters, and now I find out it was JK being attributed the spoils of the win in a very short time frame. He is to be commended for his hard work, but let’s not deny real Americans who went out on the streets against all odds and fear of retaliation …who did the real work. Wictor is over-reaching and it is dangerous to allow complacency and dependence on 100 people to do the job.

      Wictor’s new shtick is to say “Do your own research, I’m not here to spoonfeed you” when people ask him WHY or HOW he reaches the conclusions he lectures about on Twitter. That indicates he’s working from gut instinct (he says he can see what others don’t) more than fact, and a lot of what he says can’t supported by anything besides “Because I say so.”

      Wictor is a very intelligent man and he might be right, but I’m increasingly wary of his conclusions. In his world, the deep state doesn’t exist at all (he’s said this), no spies are ever rogue (they’re all white hats), everybody in Trump’s orbit is 100% trustworthy, and everything that seems to be wrong is always, always, always fake leaks created by Trump to deceive and confuse.

      I’ve come to believe that many of Wictor’s tweetstorms don’t reveal hidden truths that only he can see so much as they reveal Wictor’s hopes and wishes that he’s stating as facts.

        From Chief Investigative Reporter at Judicial Watch re: Jared Kushner
        By December 2016, Mr. Kushner had troubles of his own. His flagship Kushner Companies property at 666 Fifth Avenue in New York had been bleeding money for years and it was getting worse. In 2007, Mr. Kushner, then 25, had paid $1.8 billion for the property—too much, in the view New York real estate industry mavens, and on the eve of a steep dive in the market. The property had never turned a profit. By 2016, escalating fees and interest payments on the deal were kicking in and the bulk of a $1.2 billion mortgage would soon come due. At the time of the VEB meeting, Mr. Kushner also was secretly pursuing a $4 billion development deal with the Anbang Insurance Group—a Chinese company linked to princelings of the Chinese Communist Party—that held the possibility of ending his problems with the Fifth Avenue project.

        Mr. Kushner sold his stake in the family real estate business to a family trust in January. White House officials have said Mr. Kushner did not know that VEB was under sanctions and did not discuss Kushner Companies business with Mr. Gorkov. A statement from VEB said that during 2016, the bank’s executives met with “a number of representatives of the largest banks and business establishments of the United States, including Jared Kushner, the head of Kushner Companies.” No word from VEB on where and when those other meetings took place. The Anbang deal fell apart in early 2017 after the New York Times reported on the China connection and Congress raised concerns.

        So, to recap: while a critical business deal was drowning in debt, the president’s son-in-law asked the Russian ambassador for a secret channel to the Kremlin, met with a powerful Putin-linked banker, and sought $4 billion from Chinese financiers connected to high Communist Party circles in Beijing. This same son-in-law coordinated his Russia contacts with the incoming national security adviser, an important Trump campaign surrogate who was furious at being fired by the previous president and at war with the U.S. intelligence community, who himself took money from the Russians, and who soon would be fired for lying about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

        I didn’t know or care about his politics and didn’t go to concerts for him to figure out mine.
        When the music reaches into your soul and talks about your life you follow.
        He’d tell stories about his mom and dad. His life growing up in Jersey. How they put the band together. How they fought the established norms and made their own way.

        NOW, that has turned out to be one lie after another. No song he ever wrote and poured his heart out to make come alive is who he is now.
        But the reality sinks in when he now preaches to live audiences the left leaning political corruption he is firmly embracing.

        To your point Sedanka I’m here to be entertained by Hollywood and the music industry. Not to be told how bad I am and how wrong I am. I see these people now for who they are. Phonies who live their lives doing one thing and preaching another.
        Maybe I’m just older and wiser. Maybe I’ve never been one to be told how to conform. But I have my own life and really do not need anyone telling me how to live it.

        Especially an entertainer who can’t seem to get their head out of their own butt long enough to figure out that whether they are right or wrong, their job is to entertain.
        Maybe I should have saved every receipt and should ask for the money back. Since he never like or respected the person I am, maybe he should have put a disclaimer on the ticket telling everyone on the right, you’re now welcome.

        I see them all for what they are. Hypocrites willing to take all the money they can from all the people they hate or will never agree with.

          You sound just like me. However, I pegged Springsteen a little bit earlier then you. After all those songs, just as you said, about blue color towns and racing in the streets, when he went and married that actress/model Juliann Phillips, and bought a house in Beverly Hills, I knew right there he was a phony. Then he divorced her and until this day she has a gag order about discussing the marriage. Don’t even start me about his politics.
          Yet he has you believe he is just a good old Jersey boy.

      Mainly because if a butterfly flaps it’s wings in China, the government of the US will not care if gas prices go up for no reason.

      The game remains the same. Let things cost more for consumers and the donations go up to the election campaign.
