Many of us are very supportive of MAGA and our President, are not snowflakes, have real jobs, don’t wear female anatomy on our heads, don’t support BLM/kneeling at NFT/MLB/NBA etc games, do not support the Maoist Antifa, and majored in things a hell of a lot harder than the fake “gender studies.”

          The first thing we have to do is litigate up to the supreme court the eligibility requirements for non-natural born citizens who keep running for and even winning the presidents office. ie, macstain, rubio, Lyin Ted, obummer.
          No more should sealed files concerning birth right be permitted for presidential candidates. No more presidents without both parents being USA citizens.
          In short if you are not a yankee doodle dandy, you can not be president. If this is not addressed, we will have more continued subversion of our Nation!

            And here we go again. After more than 7 years studying the question, I sadly have to say that the definition of a natural born citizen is inapplicable in the 21st Century. In a nutshell, the original definition derived from the Natural Law, which says that a male child born to a male member of the tribe, is a member of such tribe. At the time of the writing of the Constitution, the concept of citizenship was embryonic at best, and none of the concepts of woman eligibility, dual citizenship, soil citizenship, woman filiation rights were in existence. The original definition is very clear: Only male children born to male American citizens are eligible. All the other definitions floating around are adjustments to the evolution of the Citizenship/International Law after the writing of the Constitution. As it stands the application of the original definition would strike off half the population (women) but would let in the Obama of the world (multiple citizenship acquired in consideration of both parents’ nationality and the location of the birth) in contradiction to the original intent of the founders. The founders only wanted yankee doodle dandies that’s clear, but nowadays it ain’t written so.

    The next GREAT Senator of TN will be Marsha Blackburn! Her and our Lion have such admiration for each other. With Corker’s announcement today, it clears the hurdles for her to run for his seat!.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jul/31/marsha-blackburn-senate-needs-to-show-some-spine-o/

    From the article linked above:

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn said Monday that the Senate needs to “show some spine” and help fix the heath insurance problem.

    “President Trump, I believe, is looking to solve the problem. The problem is we’ve got the Senate who cannot seem to — you know they like to work in gangs. We’ve had the gang of seven or eight. I want the gang of 51. I want the Senate to show spine and fix this problem,” Ms. Blackburn, Tennessee Republican, said on CNN.

    http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2017/05/16/rep-marsha-blackburn-defends-president-trump-wake-russia-report/324676001/

    From the article linked above:

    Last year, Blackburn and other Tennessee congressional Republicans repeatedly called for punishments, including criminal charges, when the FBI said former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” with classified information.

    “She cared more about her personal perspective and what people would think about her then she cared about keeping the secrets of the country,” said Blackburn in a television interview last summer posted to her official Facebook page.

    I’ve noticed a problem repeatedly that the Conservatives fall for over and over again. I’m talking about the voters.

    We get a complete fool in the Senate, who’s burned himself out and completely exposed himself as a swamp creature. So Flake, McCain, McConell, Ryan, you know the usual names. Everybody knows what a turd they are.

    So eventually we get rid of them, and just elect someone else… who then boinks us behind our back for at least 4 years before they’re completely exposed. Ted Cruz is a good example. Still lots of people supporting the guy because he hasn’t been 100% exposed yet.

    So while I’m excited Corker is gone, the shameful thing is that so called conservative voters will just vote in another wolf in sheep’s clothing… and it’ll take us at least 4 years to expose that new globalist to the level we’ve exposed Corker.

    Part of me would prefer that we blackmail, manipulate, threaten and twist Corker instead of getting a new guy it’s going to take us 4 years to be able to have as much pressure on.

    Hoping for the best.

      I would think that fielding new primary candidates would be a vital component of President Trump’s MAGA agenda. I sure hope that he has somebody trustworthy in his administration who is up to the task! There seems to be an endless parade of posers and backstabbers to obstruct President Trump at every turn.

      A true Republican congress would quickly approve his cabinet and DOJ appointees. They would also Impeach radical judges who subvert constitutional laws. Voters really need to give the President a real majority to work with, instead of recycling the same old RINOS who have openly opposed him.

        Maybe those that have left the President Trump’s administration, like Bannon, Gorker and other patriots like Palin will find and endorse fresh faces to run against First the encumbents in the primaries and against the Demoncraps in the elections.

        Those that come with endorsements from outside the GOP are the ones to embrace and vote for in numbers. Every Conservative and Trump Movement voter must flood the election and thereby beat even Demonrats in so called safe seats.

    Interesting that he decides to leave in mid term. The possibilities are fascinating.
    1) Family issues are a real possibility, but being a RINO, I doubt everything he says.
    2) He doesn’t think he can be re-elected so he wants to be free to do as much damage as possible.
    3) He thought Hillary was going to win. His gravy train of swamp water is drying up.
    Perhaps this deserves the 48 hour rule, just in case of any surprises.

    You can bet that a big part of this decision is the absolute total backlash that Corker and the TN Republican Party got when Corker decided to pop off Trump’s remarks on Charlottesville. Corker sounded just like the total weasel he is. Two-faced, playing for his donors.

    I wrote and phoned him and the Republican Party and his office in Nashville. First, for two days you couldn’t get through and when I did I could tell the lady on the other end of the phone was getting worn out. It was a pathetic display by Corker and by extension the GOP in TN.

    I do remember PDJT a couple of weeks later making an off-the-cuff remark about ‘people in TN not real happy with Bob Corker right now’…. or something to that effect.

    I’m convinced, the key with the RINO’s is number 1 – exposure and number 2 – make the local party offices and officials feel the heat. (the local GOP offices are much more likely to be principled conservatives anyway)

    People of Arizona, for example, rise up and throw McCain out now via your local GOP…. it will work.

    Others… take down Flake, Sasse, Heller, Portman, the despicable Mark Warner, etc…. all of them must go and Romney-McDaniels can’t do it from her perch…. call your county GOP and do NOT let them off the hook. They need to feel the heat and will do something about it.

    Now evermore, is the time, to write our congressmen a heartfelt letter / email / call, to express one’s great disappointments in their capacity as public servants. Their abysmal record in accountability to their constintuency and in their constitutional duties. Their failures of confirming POTUS appointments and his agenda (BUILD The Wall!, Stripping ACA, TAXES) and his promises to the American People. Failure at listening to our will.

    Past failures: accountability: IRS; FBI; DOJ; the soft recession; catering to the COC and lobbyists; the lawlessness that has wrecked our nation’s tranquility; the rise of JIHAD; opiod deaths; military-suicides; illegal aliens / benefits; unconstitutional ACA; drug-trafficking; sex-trafficking and child-pornogrophy; political conspiracies; political weaponization; MSM propaganda; behaviors unbecoming in public servants.

Same people/companies who fund his illegal account have told him for years when you see the writing on the wall from your constituents (for betraying them) resign and you will have that $10 million, and at least $1 million a year in ‘salary’ for doing our bidding. I GUARANTEE it. Same case with most of the other RINO’s.
