      The simple fact is that the GOP never wanted to really repeal/replace anything. They always had Obama’s skirt to hide behind. If the masses were really awake or aware, they would vote these clowns out every election. But they don’t. Just keep electing the same schmucks in, year after year. And the wheels keep on turning. They are all about keeping their place at the dinner table…ie money feeding trough.
      Even now, fully exposed…the pushback still goes on against MAGA.
      I hate them all!

          Shows you what complete puppets they are knowing what the American voters want, knowing how low their approval rates are, ignoring the tremendous strides already achieved by the Administration in numerous areas. The financial payoff must be so tremendous they are eager to sell their souls to the Devil to keep obstructing. Whatever respect I once had (and it was great), has totally disappeared. They are no better than the Antifa street monsters…just wearing suits and not getting their hands dirty.

        After seeing the number of out of state licenses (5300) used to vote in New Hampshire that swung most of the state from President Trump and ousted Kelly Ayote, I no longer fully believe incumbents are reelected without cheating.

            I think the results should be nullified…hold special election. Ayotte was a RINO, but the fact we let fraud stand is unacceptable. In the meantime, Hillary and her braindead supporters keep up the lie that she actually won the election. If California was examined, they’d find 3 million fraudulent votes.

          I know. I think I was actually shocked by how high the number was in NH. That is such a significant percentage of the vote!

          Somewhere on the Daily Thread yesterday someone said it was out of state college students. Yeah, maybe, but I keep thinking about Scott Brown talking about bus loads coming in from Massachusetts.

          To me, this smacks of an organized effort not just a few goofy idealist college kids who usually can’t be bothered to vote. I smell good old time Democrat politics. Down and dirty. And who oh who do you suppose paid for those buses???? I’d bet it was HRC’s campaign.

            Many people are really upset because they believe the students also vote in their home town of residence but vote in their college town as well.

They should not be allowed to vote at their college location…they elect our county commissioners and state reps..really bad decision to have done this. Also, imo, you used to have to be 21 to vote…18 is too young…personally, 30 would be better (just joking young’uns).

            I was hoping Ayotte would demand a recount but after she researched, she said there was no way she could make up 1017 votes based on past history of recounts. I was furious because of the bus loads flooding our communities. Soros et al determined this race was winnable so the state was flooded with democrat money. I forget the numbers but it was nationally funded. Hassan spent her whole term out of state raising money to the point she wanted the legislature to appoint a CEO to do her job. Bwahahahaha, I’m not kidding. They also laughed at her. She was useless, incompetent, in lockstep democrat soundbites throughout, not an original idea. All 4 NH federal democrat congressionals are in lockstep, despicable behavior. I just get typical form letters from them when I sign protests and petitions, totally useless. The “Live free or die” state is being over run by Massachusettites who come here demanding their taxachusetts’ services destroying the entire state in the process. Always on a slow boil when elections happen because we are invaded by them.

          And if it happened in New Hampshire, it happened in other states. Exclude all the voter fraud and President Trump would have also won the popular vote–in a landslide. They can look at license plates on election day and they can go back and look at license plates on vehicles parked at campaign rallies. HRC could not draw enough crowd to fill half the bleachers in a middle school gym and Trump rallies drew tens of thousands from near and far. It was nothing for people to drive 10-12 hours to the rally then stand in line another 8 hours to see Donald Trump.

          This story abt New Hampshire will be buried and ignored. Democrats and the media love voter fraud when it favors them. When they get exposed for allowing non citizens to vote, people voting multiple times, dead people and pets voting, denying deployed military votes from being counted, it’s time to run with some rehashed Fake Russia ‘news’.

              There was a book with the phrase like “if it is not close, they can’t cheat”. Written quite some time ago, but long after many famous cheats had been acknowledged.

              I agree, but only in part. LBJ having some hack waiting to see what the margin is that they need to overcome before discovering uncounted ballots enough to put Kennedy over the top doesn’t happen if it isn’t close. On the other hand counting votes from Chicago’s cemeteries doesn’t only happen when it is close.

              Most voter fraud is designed to run up the vote count, and they have been intentionally making this easier with all sorts of laws and judicial decisions. Voter ID laws are struck down, motor voter laws create both illegal voters and register hordes of nonvoters that can be used to cover multiple voting. Mail in ballots, great for 80 year old shut ins and military, are also abused.

              And simply, no matter how the country splits, there are always close elections. Cheating as a policy allows you to win the close ones (LBJ), but it also shifts the split (Chicago). It allows a smaller group to control the majority.

              Democrats are becoming more and more blatant about their cheating. And about their efforts to shift the country away from its founding to the next Venezuela. The hosers helping them just want in on the power and are happy to hurt others in doing so.

              So, more than slipping one past them, we overpowered their cheat. And in doing so we thwarted their power grab. Hence the splodey heads and the doubling down on hurting people who stand in their way.

            Great point. It is becoming clearer that our UniParty may indeed be political engineers, with aiders and abettors making the assist.

            Karl Rove gave it away on Election Night 2012 when he was astounded that Mitt Romney did not ‘win’ Ohio. I believe both sides attempted to fix Ohio, but the Democrat fix excelled. And we have known for years that Kennedy was installed by the Chicago machine. Why wouldn’t the same tactics be used in state and local ‘elections’?

            Wish there was a solid way to audit some of these races.

          (0350 PST.).

          Upon discovering CTH, Bluto and fluffy dog were among the first CTH supporters I followed.

          The insight, coupled with humour was brilliant.

          Sitting up here in comfort, yet with a heavy heart for those fine CTH supporters in Florida.

          I selfishly became angry at the thought of the organized corruption in your elections.

          Then along comes Bluto, as usual he is spot on, Your President is a genius, hence Kobach and his commission were off and running from the get go.

          Although my instincts suggest to me that Sessions will come through bigly, the level of frustration at his apparent inaction is understandable.

          His job was massive. Few, even on this site had a real understanding of the ” swamp.” Its complexity and its depth. Goodness me, the FBI and DOJ have been concealing and destroying evidence unfettered.

          Nor the utter corruption of your political system.

          Look. I am a real cynic, and skeptic. Work and experiences have reinforced these outlooks.

          That said. Optimism abounds with PDJT in the wheelhouse. Nearly all of D.C. is against his agenda. An agenda that puts Americans first. The media and much of corporate and entertainment industry too.

          Yet here is in the wheelhouse, guiding the country through. Hurricanes, international threats. Trade agreements, unfounded personal attacks on he and his beautiful family…

          There are several Canadians in my neighbourhood, that support your President to the fullest. We despise his enemies, and we discuss them often. Particularly your RINOs ( they by far, in our view are the worst.)

          So my guess is that there are tens of millions of Americans that are near apoplectic with their elected officials. These same American patriots if they go down, will go down scrapping.

          Thank you Bluto, PDJT will not roll over.

          That my friends is why the RINOs are so scared, one sees it in their eyes, and hears it in their whining.

          God bless PDJT.

          Best wishes to all in Irmas path.

              They know PDJT holds several aces up his sleeve, and will play them as required.

        “The simple fact is that the GOP never wanted to really repeal/replace anything.”

        Exactly. Sundance “stole a march” on everyone by beginning to talk about how the UniParty discretely operated for literally decades to co-opt both Democrats and Republicans. Trump tore the facade away and revealed them and their bought-and-paid-for politicians for what they are. Like Bannon said in his interview, their loyalties are to the American people and now both the Ds and Rs are working alongside the Deep State, and the crooked media to destroy the Trump presidency. But now that President Trump has shown the American people just how corrupt the “good conservative” lawmakers really are, it’s going to very hard for them to go home and pretend to be conservatives when their insurgency voters know the truth. I fully expect the president to start campaigning against those Republicans who sold him and us out. Change is coming.

          Let’s review the timeline, as Sundance always recommends:

          – In 2009+ Obama and the Dems had the House, the Senate and the White House. They ran wild and the Repubs DID NOTHING
          – Then the Repubs won the House and DID NOTHING. They needed the Senate.
          – Then the Repubs won the Senate and DID NOTHING. They needed the White House.
          – Then the Repubs won the White House and did so with a strong outsider with a commitment to MAGA. And again they DID NOTHING.
          – So now we have to wait for the next election?

            Then in November 2016 the “masses” went right to the WH and elected a LEADER who can transform the useless GOP into an AmericaFirst unit. Amazing progress has been made, including turning the Freedom Caucus into a unit that might actually some day be effective. Since 2009, the “masses” recruited a bunch of GI’s, but in 2016 they appointed a “fighting” General. THAT is why GDP goes from 1 to 4% in a heartbeat, the border FINALLY gets closed, and ISIS is being exterminated, and we’ve ONLY JUST BEGUN.

            So as Bill Mitchell says today, maybe better to leave the time machine PAST and like Trump, his TEAM, and his supporters, get on with the FUTURE.

            One of these scenarios will unfold after 2018 midterm elections. Best scenario: MAGA puts up “trustworthy” candidates who will primary out all GOPe incumbents, and we retain the majority, while voting in true patriots to MAGA. The rest of GOPe will either clambor aboard MAGA, or they will peel off to vote with the Democrats, same old, same old,
            until all are eventually voted out. #draintheswamp

            Scenario #2 : GOPe uses splitter strategy to deliberately lose their seats to the Democrats in 2018 and republiCONS continue to posture but now have a plausible excuse (lost the majority) for getting nothing accomplished to MAGA.

            Scenario #3: A combination of scenario one, Cantoring of GOPe incumbents, combined with President Trump negotiating with the Democrats to pass legislation that pushes the MAGA ball forward, until Trump patriots are eventually voted in to replace every last incumbent.

              The senate voted UNANIMOUSLY to thwart MAGA by preventing President Trump from making appointments during their August recess. They ALL did that. Not just a handful. This unmasked the entire senate as being untrustworthy.

              Never forget that, had one of these republicans, just one, peeled away from the group, then President Trump would have had a HUUGE opportunity to make MAGA appointments. Instead, they all voted in unison to thwart MAGA.

        SUBJECT: Individual Accountability for Corporate Wrongdoing

        “[…]There are, however, many substantial challenges unique to pursuing individuals for corporate misdeeds. In large corporations, where responsibility can be diffuse and decisions are made at various levels, it can be difficult to determine if someone possessed the knowledge and criminal intent necessary to establish their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This is particularly true when determining the culpability of high-level executives, who may be insulated from the day-to-day activity in which the misconduct occurs. As a result, investigators often must reconstruct what happened based on a painstaking review of corporate documents, which can number in the millions, and which may be difficult to collect due to legal restrictions.[…]” https://www.justice.gov/archives/dag/file/769036/download

        #2. MOST IMPORTANT:
        A method to dishearten people so they are no longer will FIGHT for MAGA or to KICK THE B@$T@RD$ OUT!!!

          So failing to punish government workers for abusing American citizens en mass to deny them their constitutional rights, overcome their political power, and conducting a cover up after being found out, is part of “the good that Trump has done”?

          Are the DOJ staff that she illegally gave tax records to still on staff? Could they be involved in exonerating her? Or their buddies? Or someone appointed by Obama who still hasn’t been told to leave?

          Sessions is doing good things for Trump and for the country. And Trump never stops doing good things for the country.

          But they both have displayed blind spots to trust malicious people in law and law enforcement. This has caused Trump harm. And will continue to do so until they overcome this weakness and drain this part of the swamp. A part of the swamp that they have control over, political appointees and people who committed crimes.

          But they no longer have control over the worst, Mueller, as he continues to try and take revenge for Comey, who was justly fired.

            President Trump and AG Sessions cannot effectively drain the swamp all by themselves. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of maggots to pick off, arrest and convict and that takes more time than we’ve got.

            Furthermore, there are unionized DC imbeds who can’t be fired, as well as radical judges, who actively work against Trump and impede any legal actions taken.

            Our best bet now is to look in the mirror. Either we elected these snakes who obstruct MAGA or we slept while they illegally stole the elections. THIS we can, and should, remedy ASAP.

The card I had them billing my program to does not EXP. until 2022. I thought that was a strange email so I saved it and tried to contact Equifax today to see what that email was all about but when I called It would just go to voice mail.

        MM, that might have been a phishing email, and perhaps it snared others or allowed a vulnerability that was breached.

        Don’t open it again, but I’d suggest in the listing of emails (1 line each) hover over the “From” column and right-click “Properties”. I get a pop-up menu that has a tab “Details” that I click. Then I have a good look at the “From” address, sometimes you can see that it’s not really a valid email from the expected sender, instead it ends with a foreign suffix or something that doesn’t quite look like the valid company address.

        Other symptoms are a salutation that’s odd, overly formal, or overly casual (I get a bunch of solicitations “Slim ! try this …” and my name ain’t Slim.

        That’s what I do with any suspect email. Some get shunted to my junk folder but some don’t and I’m especially careful with those.

        The other issue I get a lot is when my friend’s email has been apparently hacked.

        Symptoms include others on the “To” or “Cc” list that I know (friends of friends) and the real bell-ringer is if they’re in alphabetical order (their email has been hacked and the spoofer is spamming to their entire address list, in alpha order).

        So I’ll have a look with this right-click Properties and often don’t even open the email, I just delete it. And above all, I never click on a link in a suspicious email, that can start an executable job that burrows into your system.

        You may know all this but not everyone does, a buddy of mine last week clicked on something and his computer locked up with a ransomware demand. Had to take it into specialists to get it cleaned and restored.

          Same goes for emails. I never open attachments or click on links, even when it seems legitimate. And clicking on the sender often reveals a different email address hidden behind the one shown which, as you say, is a dead giveaway to phishing.

        Google ‘placing a fraud alert on my credit cards’ and you’ll get 800/888 #s for all 3 credit reporting cos. Call one of them (probably not Experian, however) – follow the prompts, and you can place a 90 day fraud alert on your credit info. Placing the alert with one of the companies results in a notification as to the remaining two. This will prevent anyone who may apply for credit using your name/social from obtaining it – plus you will be notified by mail should someone try to do this. You can extend the alert once the 90 days is up, simply by repeating the process. Very simple process and worth the peace of mind. No cost involved.

          Covfefe, I did something similar after getting notice from the State of IL (Dept. of Employment Security – jobs site) about a hack of their program administrator in April of this year. Rather than the 90 day fraud alert, I went a step further (w/all 3 major agencies) where it does the equivalent of “freezing” (or something comparable and it is indefinite) my account. Last night, when I contacted Equifax via the link they provided about their hack, their site indicated that it “appeared” I may have been affected… I am wondering if their response is a result of the action I took in April (their hack occurred in May). I am suppose to register for their whatever program (related to this mess) on Monday, 12th. If they try to charge me a fee, they can go pound sand – they created the problem and I”m not paying to rectify it.

          New White House Chief of Staff Has an Enforcer
          By MAGGIE HABERMAN and GLENN THRUSHSEPT. 8, 2017

          [snip]
          Lost in the scramble to cope with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the response to North Korea’s nuclear provocations and the shock at President Trump’s instant alliance with Democrats was a little-noticed bureaucratic earthquake that shook the White House this week.

          At a staff meeting on Wednesday, Mr. Trump’s new chief of staff, John F. Kelly, announced a number of seemingly quotidian internal moves, capped by the appointment of Kirstjen Nielsen — his brusque, no-nonsense longtime aide — as an assistant to the president and his principal deputy.

          Few outside the White House marked the moment, but inside the building, this was a big deal. Mr. Kelly had just handed day-to-day operations to a forceful, empowered aide some of her new colleagues are already comparing to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the feared Vatican enforcer who eventually became Pope Benedict XVI.

          Perhaps the biggest problem Mr. Kelly, a retired Marine general, faces in taming his meandering, leaky, infighting-plagued West Wing staff is getting them used to the idea of functioning more or less the way previous White Houses have.

        Net, you build your case quietly and powerfully.

        When you’re ready, you get an indictment and let the justice process begin.

        And given the IRS abused people in virtually every state, you pick your venue.

        Until a senior swamp creature is indicted, nothing will happen.

        And don’t kid yourselves. Lack of progress on indictments emboldens to swamp creatures on both sides of the aisle to thumb their noses at the Trump agenda.

      Is there anybody on her side that she hasn’t blamed yet? Is there anybody in the world that she hasn’t blamed?

      I still haven’t seen her blaming Huma. Nor Bill. Nor the Clinton Global Crime Foundation. Nor her attempt to cover up her participation in selling out the country for donations by using an illegal server. Nor an apology for giving away national secrets in her attempt to hide her other crimes.

      And nothing believable about those health issues. Nor why she hardly campaigned. Nor why she spent so much money and vote fraud in running up the vote tally in states she would win if she were in a casket. ( NY and CA) Nor why she didn’t spend money and effort in the swing states Trump was targeting.

      But somehow, with all of the world working against her, the MSM, her own campaign, her own political party, the DOJ, the FBI, the sitting President of her own party, even the mighty Putin, who of course can sway American elections with only a nod of his head while riding a bear bare-backed and bare chested in the deepest darkest freezing winter night in Siberia, someho, with all of that against her, she was a shoe-in who was somehow cheated of her coronation over the serfs in America.

    Why weren’t the women outraged BEFORE I lost? Now Clinton blames female voters for her defeat in new book – and attacks Matt Lauer too
    7 September 2017

    Hillary Clinton has added another name her long list of grievances about those who cost her the election, this time singling out energized anti-Trump women marchers for failing to deliver before her historic loss.

    Clinton referenced the throngs of protesters who took the streets of Washington and other cities in a Women’s march shortly after his election. But her thoughts moved from the calls to resistance to the Trump agenda to why they hadn’t summoned that same passion for her own campaign.

    ‘I couldn’t help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage and passion had been during the election,’ Clinton writes in her new memoir, ‘What Happened.’

You then find out he used the bleach bit app so that they could not be recovered. When you ask him what was deleted, he tells you it was workout routines and recipes. Then you find out he has 11 more cell phones that he never told you about. When you ask to see them he tells you he cannot give them to you because he smashed them all with a hammer after you asked to see the first one. Would you ever trust him again?

    Pres Trump has given the green light to down any missiles launched.

    NK officials have been called on the diplomatic carpet in the UK, EU, Germany as well as the cutting off of all trade in SE Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, et al.

    Pres Xi, has the 19th Party conference to face. His allies are calling him ‘lingxiu” “Supreme Leader” (Mao’s designation that was outlawed in the 1980s to stop cult of a leader). Xi has demoted three top PLA generals (Fang Fenghui, one of the most senior PLA officers is in trouble. Fang recently met with the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen Dunford in Beijing and was part of the PRC delegation at the Trump-Xi “Citrus Summit” in April.).

    However, there may be some dissent from Xi’s drive for supreme power and his machiavellian maneuvers to eliminate all rivals who do not buy into his hard Marxist line. We will only know if the Party congress lasts longer than a week.

Trump has done deals with an enormous number of people over his life, many of them unsavory.
      As a business person myself, I understand being friendly to all comers. Pres Trump may have made a decision to let Koskinen retire later this year, instead of creating another battle front when he already has dozens already. Who knows.

    So the pubs are upset that Trump made a deal with the dems on the short term lifting of the debt ceiling and claiming he was fiscally irresponsible. How is removing the debt ceiling for 18 months instead of 3 more fiscally responsible? As far as making deals with the dems is concerned, what was that crap every single member of congress pulled to block recess appointments?
    I wonder if the focus on the debt ceiling could be a misdirection, since Trump actually wants to reduce the debt anyway. Let them negotiate for something that could become irrelevant. We need to reduce spending to reduce the debt. Playing games with the debt ceiling is just political theater.

    This is from a speech given by Mother Teresa how abortion is the “greatest destroyer of love and peace”…she is right on the money with her explanation–simply put.

    Then the sister said something that made everyone very uncomfortable: “But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because Jesus said, ‘If you receive a little child, you receive me.’ So every abortion is the denial of receiving Jesus, the neglect of receiving Jesus.”

    “By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. [Abortion is] really a war against the child, and I hate the killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that the mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? … Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love one another, but to use violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

He’s pulling DACA out of moratorium for everyone so that those who broke the law when given a chance to register, have criminal records, lied on their applications, have to leave, leave, so America can get on with building. The executive branch does not have legislative authority to make DACA permanent. Those liberal haters hate just for the sake of hating Trump. People have to stop blaming him!

    Harvey and Irma rightfully occupy our prayers and attentions right now. Lots of folks are and will be needing a helping hand. I can’t help being grateful, however, that the wise Citizens of our Great Land, put Donald Trump into the WH. The thought of ToxicTed or Hillary in charge right now gives me great pause, tremors actually. I was contemplating about this some yesterday.

    There is very little that concerns me about the Left or the MSM. They may not know it, but they are finished. Most of my surprise centers around Trump “supporters” who so often remind me of the movie “Groundhog Day”. They howl and pine over some negotiating ploy by The President they fail to comprehend, he then WINS, and fulfills his campaign promise….and then without pause, on to the next “OMG, TRUMP IS BETRAYING US!” narratives. A lot like the way one by one, “supporters” go after his Personally Handpicked Team.

    Trump keeps his cards close to the vest which confuses folks a lot. I don’t know why though. He now has a track record. He clearly stated his Agenda, or End Gae during the campaign. “Unfulfilled” promises are merely “unfulfilled” YET. The President simply will not give up leverage during negotiations simply to mollify doubters. How silly would it be for an of us to approach a deal for a house by saying to the seller: “You are asking 150K; I will offer 140K hoping that you will sell the house to me for 145K.” Really, I mean, WHO would negotiate that way? CAREER POLITICIANS, that’s who.

    Only Ted Cruz would take the Oath, and then order Hillary, Lois Lerner, Loretta Lynch and Obama handcuffed on day one; pick up the phone and begin negotiations with the Speaker of the House by calling him a RAT and with Senate Leader by calling him a “LIAR” and a Turtle; and then propose building a Wall with El Chapo’s money after no one will anymore work with him. The result? Yet another eight years of a George W. Bush administration of losing, losing , losing……Including, by the way, blowing the chance to actually bag some of the Big Swamp Fish due to impatience and sloppiness that ensues all in the interest of pleasing the Cruz/Coulter zealots who act as if revenge is the only way to run a country of 330 million folks.

    Trump people strategy and the “disposable people”.
    Put yourself in Trump’s position. You want to win the election and you want a smooth transition in your first 6 months.

    1) Priebus. Brought in to try to bridge to GOPe. Did it work? NO!!

    other downside. Did Priebus leak? Yes to his GOPe buddies on inside scoop and hearsay. To try to let them gain leverage over Trump on GOPe issues.

    Was Priebus ever really loyal to Trump? No. He only saw Trump as gaining Republican voters and donations.
    ==> Result – Fired.
    –> Has Priebus stayed loyal to the President after his release? Yes Sort of. He has kept his mouth shut unlike his buddy Ryan. And Priebus still likes Trump’s donation and people drawing power.

    2) Bannon. Brought in to bring in the strong right voters to win the election. Did it work? Yes.

    After the election, to keep the right side people on Trump’s side for again a smooth 6 month transition. Did it work? No.
    Right side people went back to attacked PDJT almost immediately after the election.

    Did Bannon leak? Yes. To his right side people to try to leverage PDJT to do Bannon’s agenda.
    Bannon thought he could control the President and his cabinet to do Bannon’s agenda. Bannon was never really loyal to Trump. He only saw the possibility to push his agenda.

    ==> Result. Fired.
    –> Has Bannon stayed loyal to the President after his release. No. Bannon does what Bannon does for himself. He was never loyal to Trump.

    3) Cohn. Brought in to quiet the Wall Street people and stock markets for the first 6-9 months. Trump knew he needed a quiet Wall Street and stock markets for a while and them not attacking him financially. So what better way than to bring in the President of the much favored Goldman people.
    Did it work? yes. very much.

    Yes I know publicly they say he was brought in for tax reform. But others could and can do that job. Cohn was mostly to gain favor with the financial people.

    Charlottesville – The turning point in several ways.
    (1) Cohn and his mouth. Not a leaker but boy his mouth.
    (2) Wall Street not so calm anymore. I hear some talk of bringing the markets down some just to spite Trump. Certainly smart people are already positioning for that. And their words have changed.

    You now hear more often about how extended the markets are, etc. They were not over-extended just a few months ago as Trump agenda was helping companies revenues and profits. Now they are massively over extended and no mention of how PDJT has helped corporate revenues and profits. Now talk of world wide slowdown from 3 months ago world wide boom.

    Wall Street Trump haters are positioning themselves and their words to stall the markets.
    (3) tax reform. Most of his work on tax reform is already done. After that he can leave.

    ==> Cohn will not be fired but will be pressured to leave on his own if one more bad thing happens.
    He is on tight probation and being tested to see if he really ever wanted this job or not. And was he ever really loyal to the President.

    Tests – (1) keep mouth shut and (2) get Trump tax plan in place NOT Wall Street favored tax plan. They are different in key areas.

    ==Other Strategically disposable people?==
    Yes more possible. And they now know it and maybe have been scared into behaving and doing their jobs better.

    Comments and differences of opinion welcome as always.

      So, his eight months has been a very limited success. Not his fault completely. No President has ever had so many enemies working so effectively to frustrate the Will of the People and to destroy the man.

      But his tactics have been failing.

      He now has shifted, has a “second half” adjustment he clearly has made.
      Ryan and Turtle are in trouble.
      12 weeks. Trump needs to destroy his enemies like he did the 16 bozos in the Primaries.

      Cohn would be a good “scalp” to take.
      Ryan would be even better. He should get Ryan out.

      Trump needs to get some big scores in this second half.

      No one ever thought this was going to be easy.

      MAGA lives.

        Very good analysis, from a particular point of view course. I don’t know Trump and can only guess at his comprehension level of the frustration among the country. But he was voted in based mainly on this enormous frustration. He has decidedly NOT taken a path that addresses or satiates this frustration, and in many cases his silence and lack of action on key fronts has exacerbated it. No significant swamp draining, spotty counter-attacks against Left, hundreds of missed opportunities to degrade the media (the “fake news” meme is exhausted at this point and Trump should long ago have taken this issue to another level — such as a speech on the national crisis of a toxic and mendacious journalism industry), nothing on the war on free speech raging across campuses and the country, erratic and mushy public communication team. My surmise is that Trump is not really an actual warrior as much as a very competent and tough pragmatist who wants to work with people. But people DO NOT WANT TO WORK WITH HIM. And I really don’t think he understands the Left as well as he needs to. This non-action with Louis Lerner was terrible — an easy call, easy redemption for Sessions, and a backdoor case that could have led to the top.

          Both of you are overlooking his strong presence in foreign affairs. He is re-structuring ME alliances, he is boxing in China to get action on NK, he is pushing ISIS into smaller and smaller confines. Not to mention relieving America of TPP and the Paris Climate Accord which would have been deadly to our economy—and tightening borders and taking Wall prototypes. Sorry Bull—don’t agree his first 8 months have had limited success !

          Where have you been?

      Palace Intrigue stuff, irrelevant. That’s Trump’s area of expertise, and the cacophony and blather of second-guessers has no impact on MAGA. It is ideological bloodlust and peanut gallery stuff.

      Your economic worries echo the more Socialist view of “government doing something” to get growth. Companies will figure out how to grow themselves. Trump’s efforts thus far have been to get Government out of their way, and he has done tremendously with a GDP of 4.0 coming up end of Sept. “Overextended markets” is a Globalist term used to manipulate investor psychology. As Reagan used to say, there are no “limits” to what the American capitalist can do.

      Trukmp’s “political” efforts to get Legislation passed, are going along nicely, but turning Congress from Wall Street loyalty back to Main Street is a task that takes more than a few weeks. And yet, Budget, Tax Reform and Repeal will get done, and by the way, these are also measures to get Government out of the way.

    Alright, who are you more sick of – Barry Hussein or Hillary? That’s a pretty difficult question.

    I’ve become very disappointed in Jeff Sessions.
    Am I being impatient or missing something?
