      I just received a survey from of all people….. Lyin Ryan and asking for $$$$ to support TRUMPs agenda …. REALLY……. Well, he got an ear full from me, basically telling him ALL money will be sent straight to our President until they get on board with TRUMPs agenda and that McCon man and Lyin Ryan need to step down for lying to the American people since 2010……. It just made me feel good to do that ……

    btw: has anybody heard from Sec Tom Price? I haven’t seen him in months. He wields a lot of “at the Secretary’s discretion” power in the obysmal non care non system that we have right now.
    What has he been up to?

      My point is this, Sec Price is the main player in the obysmal non care chicanery that the congress can’t figure out how to repeal.

      He was supposed to do a few thousand things “at the Secretary’s discretion”.

      Yes, Georgia I checked his twitter before I commented. Nothing on there except a few words supporting the house and senate in their lame attempts.

        Blacksmith, I believe President Trump knows he has another hand, albeit temporary if Congress thwarts him.

        One: DACA. Everyone keeps saying that Congress has jurisdiction over immigration. They do not. They have jurisdiction over crearing a uniform rule over naturalization. Trump and the Executive Administration has power over immigration.

        Two: Healthcare – The reason Sundance had so urgently been backing any law to be pssed on Obamacare, is that Sec.Price has sweeping jurisdiction over the law after a fix could be passed. It would be preferable to have the Congress pass something. But please, anyone tell me that if nothing passes, that Price cannot radically change the entire nature of the law?

        Ideologues are very easy targets b/c they cannot and will not be pragmatic enough to find their path to victory; it’s all about their ideals and if winning fits in, Great! If Not, well, they stood on principle and their ideals are tucked safely in place BUT, the bigger question is:
        How does that help the American people in their district who are now going to be hurt more with a radical, progressive, liberal pushing their agenda?

            As a retired politician of more than 30 years working on local, state and national campaigns, I was only expressing my thoughts on what any and all democrats will do in any and all campaigns with republicans; it is just who they are, regardless of where they live. The DNC will make the call if they want to push the rhetoric and there is always the possibility that Moore is a splitter so the dem wins. That’s been done before, and I’ll bet it’s been done once or twice in Alabama.
            Just sayin’.

Research his life and career for your answer; he is known in the business world as a ‘never quitter’, achieving the ‘impossible’ and more importantly, ‘his handshake sealed the deals’, then he’d get the attorney to write the contract. He was and still is respected by his enemies in business around the world, even if he beat them. He earned every $ of his billions.
                Both Pres. Nixon and Reagan believed him to be presidential material. I believe he has a letter framed in the Oval Office by one of the Presidents’ or their wives’,(Nixon Or Reagan), stating this.

      He nailed it.
      Inside the thread was this article from Moore’s former law school professor.

      “As a practicing lawyer since 1974, lay minister, Vietnam veteran, Roy Moore’s teacher at Alabama School of Law, and close observer of Justice Moore’s two tenures on the Alabama Supreme Court, I feel compelled to share some concerns.

      As a preface, I share Justice Moore’s devotion to the Ten Commandments and am thrilled for any public person to espouse the values we share. So are those who twice removed Justice Moore as Chief Justice: many are devout Christians.

      One: Roy Moore did not get along with his colleagues in law school or on the Supreme Court. The arguments were not over Christianity.
      In law school, the arguments arose from what Disraeli called “falling into a deep groove of illogic and being helpless to allow reason to pull you out.” If Moore’s analysis of a case was tantamount to thinking 1 + 1 = 3, and his classmates reasoned otherwise, there was no backing down by Moore. The class was willing to fight to the death against illogic that no legal mind but one in America would espouse.

      Moore never won one argument, and the debates got ugly and personal. The result: gone was the fulfillment a teacher hopes for in the still peace of logic and learning. I had no choice but to abandon the Socratic method of class participation in favor of the lecture mode because of one student: Roy Moore.

      Two: As Chief Justice, Moore continued that trend. He violated years of precedent, established by Jefferson.

      Three: The conservative cause is seeing fragile times. I serve an organization dedicated to promoting free enterprise, and desperately want to see change, including, as one of many examples, elimination of regulations choking our nation’s spirit. To help this nation change, we will need senators who get along. Who can convince.

      This is not an endorsement of Strange or Jones. This is a wake-up call: the instant Moore wins the runoff is the instant his tarnished reputation as a twice-removed Chief Justice will scald the airwaves of CNN and MSNBC.

      The DNC will pour money into the campaign coffers of Doug Jones, smelling blood in solid Democratic support for Jones and from moderate Republicans.

      In Washington, Moore would be Senator Irrelevant, the poster child for stubborn resistance to common sense legislation such as repeal of ObamaCare and decrease in taxes, standing on some piece of sideways’ thinking nobody in or outside the Swamp would respect.

      A vote for Moore will be a vote for Doug Jones and against the conservative cause.”

          Actually he did. He said Moore will be a Senator in the mode of someone who always says no until he gets only his narrow (principled) way. So, nothing will get done but this guy shows he is perfectly happy with himself in doing so.

          It’s a fair criticism.

            When I see someone make claims about facts I know to be false or skewed, and it’s not a simple mistake…they are in a position that they should know better and are using that position to promote misinformation, to bolster their argument or both…I tend to discount his/her opinion as a valuable source. I might even agree with an isolated line or two, but that person would not be the reason I agree, nor would it improve his or her credibility.

            That’s just me. I find that people who lie, especially when the truth would serve as well or better than the lie, usually show their “motive” in the lie. My skepticism of this law professor is not an endorsement of either candidate. It’s Alabama’s decision. My point is to view all sources with equal standards for truthfulness, regardless of the side they appear to be on.

        My questions, along similar lines of thought re: trusting what Bannon and Gorka are up to, the other day while listening to an interview of Gorka (on the Bill Mitchell periscope thing) was that a new PAC was being formed by Gorka and several others involved with the Sinclair Broadcasting group –

        and two questions arose. The first was isn’t the Sinclair group the ones that finance all the pretend MAGA radio talking heads and the second was, I thought that people who took on jobs within the White House signed an agreement to no lobby for 5 years, and isn’t a PAC just another form of lobbying?

        So my thoughts are that yes, Gorka was fired, and the reason may become apparent sooner rather than later and maybe Bannon was fired too?

              I particularly don’t appreciate it when they steal the MAGA line with candidates like Roy Moore who come off being truly racist. There were a fringe group of loopy alt-Right freaks who misinterpret MAGA to represent the “white narrative” when President Trump long ago has said MAGA is America First for all Americans from every legal beginning. To agree to bearing torches by Kessler the Occupy agent is proof of how loopy these pretend MAGAs are.

                I get the impression that Sarah is a little needy and she responds to being valued. It would explain how she could go from McCain to Cruz to Trump to Moore. I don’t believe that Sarah is choosing candidates and trying to be a kingmaker, I think she is being asked by candidates and she wants to support whoever wants her in their corner.

                That’s just the impression I get and I don’t mean it as an insult. She is a very intelligent woman and her heart is on the right side of things, but her specific choices have been all over the map. A needy personality would explain a lot.

                  BTW, I think we should also be vigilant to ShareBlue trolls, pretending to be Moore supporters. Don’t know if we can tell the difference but I had a back and forth about Moore vs Strange on another site and afterward I thought it was the same talking points that Keiser Roll had last night/early morning, including mentioning Javanka, Cohn, Powell, and McMaster. We don’t know if either Breitbart has brainwashed these people so badly they’ve become automatons or it’s Shareblue who is being savvy. The Dems want Moore to win just as much as Bannon.

                  Read through that guy’s tweet, above about all the cases the “Conservative” won a primary in a red area only to lose to the Dem because the stupid things they’ve said or done. We already know what Roy Moore has said and done. Bannon is going to ruin the country if he gets his way.

                  ShareBlue is the same thing as that “Correct the Record” during the election by David Brock/George Soros where they have an online army to combat or sway people in comments. And they cry about Russian facebook ads!

                  I tried to give Bannon the benefit of the doubt but this has finished it. He isn’t out to help Trump, he is out to keep Trump checked. I found out Cernovich through here during the election, looked at his twitter from time to time. I think everything went to heck with these guys when Trump did the Syrian missile strike. I wasn’t quite convinced myself either, having read all of Sundance’s previous analysis. I will say I’m still not convinced Assad should be removed but I won’t get into that. Anyway, as you know, Breitbart just kept getting worse.

                  I am so angry at those two and what the heck is Sarah Palin thinking? They should ALL know Moore will make Trump the laughing stock when he gets in, if he can even get elected. And he will be so principled he won’t vote on anything or compromise. And now they think they are the movement and will be the gatekeepers of the movement. Get out of town!

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    For Immediate Release – September 23, 2017
    WSJ Editorial: “Obamacare’s Tax on the Poor”

    “More than 75% of penalized households [under Obamacare] made less than $50,000 and nine in 10 earned less than $75,000. . . . These Americans are paying a fine to avoid purchasing a product they don’t want or can’t afford but government compels them to buy.”

    ObamaCare’s Tax on the Poor

    Editorial

    The Wall Street Journal

    September 22, 2017

    Democrats claim to have a monopoly on caring for the poor and suffering, and this week the left is portraying a GOP health-care bill as an attack on society’s vulnerable. So check out the data on how ObamaCare is a tax on some low-income families.

    Spoiler alert: The payers aren’t Warren Buffett or any of the other wealthy folks Democrats say they want to tax. More than one in three of taxed households earned less than $25,000, which is roughly the federal poverty line for a family of four.

    More than 75% of penalized households made less than $50,000 and nine in 10 earned less than $75,000.

    These Americans are paying a fine to avoid purchasing a product they don’t want or can’t afford but government compels them to buy.

    The unfortunate irony is that ObamaCare destroyed the private market that offered options that in some cases made sense for these people.

    The Treehouse is one of the very few political sites I read regularly as I finally gave up on Drudge and Brietbart. I don’t post much since many of the people who regularly post here say what I am normally thinking when it comes to the Trump agenda.

    Anyway, The GOP-controlled congress is pathetic! They had SEVEN years to find a solution to repealing and replacing Obamacare. McConnell must be replaced since he is incapable of getting the job done. Even the Paul Ryan-led house passed a bill and I despise Paul Ryan (he has to go as well). Too bad Trump can’t just bypass the idiots in the Senate sign the house bill into law.

    McCain is pure evil and I can’t stand him! Shouldn’t he retire from congress and fight his cancer instead of being vindictive towards Trump? I had figured that he would be in favor of the latest bill since his BFF Lindsay Graham co-sponsored it. Ungrateful b#%#^#% just because he hates Trump. Still mad that Trump did in his 1st try that he couldn’t to in two attempts; win the presidency. He gave us Obama for 8 years! (and would had likely took a dive for Hillary had she became the candidate instead in 08)

    I don’t trust the GOPe as I think they are intentionally stalling just to undermine the President’s MAGA agenda. Collins (who should just change party affiliation to Dem and be done with it), Murkowski, Heller, and the others won’t come through as usual.

    All that said, the “muh principles” wings of the GOP from the Libertarians (Rand Paul, whom I’m very disappointing in since I normally like the man) to the religious conservatives (such as Roy Moore if he becomes the next senator of AL) are also underwhelming the Presidents agenda. Paul is too stubborn. Even though his plan is better than the GOPe plans, he doesn’t have enough votes to have it passed! None of the Dems will vote in favor of it. As horrible and obstructionist as the Dems are, at least they stick together no matter what None of the moderate Dems will break ranks with the evil Chuck Schumer and vote in favor of the Graham/Cassidy bill either.

    Why can’t the different wings of the GOP put aside their differences and be team players on Trump’s behalf. like the Dems did with Obama & the Clintons? I know, I know. Uniparty. Who exactly in the GOP side of congress has Pres . Trump’s back and can be reliable? The Graham/Cassidy isn’t perfect by any means as it does keep most of the Obamacare taxes, but the GOP ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare. They have to start somewhere!

    Finally, to hell with all these multimillionaire athletes (NFL, NBA), entertainers (Kimmel, Colbert, and many others), and other Trump haters who are still butthurt over last year’s election. Trump is your president and not Hillary! Get used to it!

    End of rant.

      Now these are things that the dems want as well, so they can collect the bucks and all vote the same way.

      The republican voters do not want these things, so we elect people who promise to represent our views, but they go through elaborate charades to -almost- pass what we want. Therefore, they keep their donor bucks coming.

      It looks like the republican party is disorganized, but actually it is a highly choreographed organization pretending to represent us. And as Maxwell Smart would say “Missed it by -that- much”.

      This was that liberal slush fund at the DOJ that was discovered a few months ago. This is outrageous:

More, penalties in such cases are deposited into the Bureau’s now-$170 million-plus Civil Penalty Fund, which has, in turn, channeled almost $30 million to “consumer advocacy” groups.

      CFPB director Richard Cordray is an Obama holdover, whose special five-year term doesn’t expire until 2018.”

      I’m tired of these idiots falsely labeling Pres Trump as a “white supremacists” without hardcore proof. The race card doesn’t work anymore just like the tiresome “Russian investigation”. Trump got more minority support than Romney or McCain did in their elections.

      I’m in my early 30s (which makes me a Millennial, a voting block that sadly voted for Crooked Hillary) and multiracial. Trump was the 1st person I actually voted for. I actually registered to vote solely to vote for him. Russia didn’t make vote for Trump. If Trump actually was an actual white supremacist. obviously I wouldn’t be voting for him but he’s not of course. (For the record, I wouldn’t vote for any black supremacist, Latino supremacist, or Asian supremacist for president either.) In fact, Trump is anti-white supremacist. The media, fake pollsters, Hollywood, SJW athletes continue to lie about Trump and his MAGA agenda. SMH.

      Minorities are slowly waking up but too many are still stuck in the Democrat plantation. How the hell does importing illegal immigrants (who are being used as pawns for cheap labor), unvetted Refugees, and radical Islam help poor & working class American families and homeless veterans struggling whether they be black, white, Latino, Asian, Interracial, etc?! None of this makes any sense! The politicians in this country need to help the American people and LEGAL immigrants who became American citizens first and deal with the illegal immigrants later!

      Just because the NFL and NBA has mostly black players doesn’t mean its automatically racist whenever they get criticized. If a bunch of idiot white players were protesting the national anthem, Trump would do the same thing and call out these unpatriotic SOBs. If you don’t like the USA, than leave! I’m pretty sure North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, or Iran will welcome these people with open arms.

        Welcome to the Treehouse, good to see you posting.

        I cannot say the same for many your age.

        Why do the lefty loony libs encourage and support illegal aliens (they are NOT immigrants), and why won’t others step off the plantation?

        Theirs is a strange, symbiotic relationship. The libs need voters to keep them in power and the less fortunate brain washed need those dimms in power to survive. They are convinced the government owes them everything.

        That was, until the big, bad government said – get up off your butts, roll up your sleeves, become self-sufficient and contribute to society.

        Yes, they need each other.

        Until President Trump was elected.

        He is trying to make America great again for EVERYONE, in spite of the obstructionists.

    I find it amusing how so many people give Steve Bannon the credit that they do. Sure he’s an intelligent guy with an admirable record both in the military and private sector.

    I’ve been with Trump since the day of his announcement and just as Coulter I never waivered. Every controversy I knew Trump would get an ounce in the polls. When people were screaming that he was done I would laugh.

    Somewhere during that time I discovered the Treehouse and Sundance was my primary source of motivation.
    Sundance was NEVER wrong and his word was bible.

    From the Treehouse and Sundance’s words he outlined Trumps plan. He’s a builder in Phases.
    Corey Lewindowsky was the laid the foundation.
    Manafort erected the framework.
    Bannon helped closed the deal.
    Trump hired these guys for a purpose. It was Trumps decision to find the talent. Trump steered the ship. Trump brought in the personnel to perform a specific task at Trumps direction.

    Bannon. He was at Breitbart. I listened to him on SiriusXM. He was a never Trumper. A cruzbot. At first he was fair towards Trump but then developed a vitriol that I rejected. He called Trump supporters hobbits. He was getting more venomous. He stuttered a lot. But he did know politics.

    When he went on board with Trump I was glad because of his reach and knowledge. He also seemed to have the balls to call it as he saw it plus the left was angry.

    Sundance said “let Trump be Trump”
    Always. And Trump always came through.

    Bannon was a closer and he stayed to help build a cabinet and form a Government

    Make no mistake. Trump built it all. I’ve followed him since I was a young private in the Army back in the 80’s. I saw him on Oprah. I honeymooned in the Grand Hyeatt. I was in uniform. A Paratrooper. President Trump comped me and through the desk receptionist he thanked me for my service with zero publicity.

    Again if the President wants Strange I support him 100%.
    McMullen wants Moore. Enough said.
