    Yrs. of FBI involvement with U1, knowing the scam and corruption was on going and they did nothing. Except lie and cover up which is still being done while Sessions looks on between his naps.

      Thank you, this is good stuff. I did some personal research into neoconservatism a while ago so that I could understand it better. History of neoconservatism is still being written but what we do know is that neoconservatism was born when certain pro-war, pro-interventionist Democrats were thrown out of the Democrat party during the Viet Nam years. The first infestation of the Republican party occurred with the selection of George H.W. Bush as Reagan’s running mate in 1980. Neoconservatism came to power in 2000 with the election of George W. Bush. There is agreement among conservatives that neoconservatism includes Globalism in its platform. It’s also been argued that Globalism came about with the collapse and destruction of the Soviet Union.

      There is strong evidence that Globalism is associated with Trotskyism – which is an arm of marxism. Marxists knew that international “revolution” would be required to overthrow capitalist societies. It’s easy to draw comparisons and associations between Neoconservatism, Globalism, Trotskyism, etc.

      Needless to say, *anyone* associated with Globalism is knowingly or unwittingly evil.

        If George Bush was neo con then his time at the CIA, as both a worker bee and the head, were times of building power for the neo cons, right? And, from what I read, the CIA was very busy building influence and influencing in its favor and in the direction in wanted foreign policy and politics to go via underhanded/propaganda means since at least WWII in mainstream publications without the public’s knowledge of who was behind those magazines and think tanks. And many were aimed directly at those in foreign policy, politics and our universities. So, the influence of the neo cons and intellectual liberals that these people were before they adopted the persona of neo cons have been busy, present and influential for much longer than when G Bush became VP, right?

        With the CIA underpinnings, is globalism really a US based “new world order” that is US control of anything, anyone and all geography that the CIA/Deep State consider in the US interests but done via dark/underhanded methods and via fronts like the UN, corporations, etc.?

        Is this why, when seemingly released from US “influence”/control Saudi Arabia is becoming a very different country and the ME is finding a way to work out their issues (at least to a degree)?

        Was “making the world safe for democracy” really about making the world safe for and receptive to US interests abroad v. making the world’s democracies safe from attack and from being undermined from abroad?

        By the way, if we are a Constitutional Republic then why were we so focused on democracies v. democratic republics? Yet another question I have not understood!

          Agreed. All of the pieces are coming together at this point in history. I said previously in the latest thread about Merkel’s inability to form a government that the US, for the last 25 years, has been the primary exporter of Globalism. The United States.

          Since Neoconservatism shares expansionism with the Leninist/Marxist/Trotskyist ideologies, it’s fair to say that the CIA has been the expansionist agent of Globalism. We learned that the State Department under the previous administration was also engaged in these types of efforts. The reason for this is actually pretty simple. The CIA and State Departments have a greater degree of latitude to carry out paramilitary operations without Congressional oversight or approval. However, this type of oversight actually exists when neocons in Congress (John McCain, Rubio, Graham, others) are overseeing these activities. We have evidence of this in Syria. We have pictures of Evan McMullin with a tactical loadout when he was supposedly working in the effort with the CIA to ‘resettle refugees’.

          The CIA isn’t really just part of the intelligence community. It’s a paramilitary group that is participating in expansionist neoconservative activities throughout the world (mostly in the Mid-East).

          Has anyone ever asked why an agency, primarily tasked with gathering intelligence, would be operating drones in Pakistan and conducting air strikes on terrorists there?

            Good pionts!

            By the way, the things in my original post were all from Wikipedia, not a “conspiracy” type web site.

            More thoughts about globalism/US international control:
            -even if the original intent was just to promote good will toward the US, protect allies and thwart dictatorships, once the clandstine apparatus was in place then it could be used for various means depending on who is in control. We saw a very odd alliance with the Muslim Zbrotherhood in recent years….

            -globalism v. America first… So, does America first policy mean corporate interests on American soil over American corporate interests abroad? Do we, the U.S. Have an obligation to equate national interests with corporate interests?

      the march toward globalism requires constant revolution and war as a means to the end.
      the trotskyites (as opposed to the marxist/leninists) believe that socialism must be establish globally through constant revolution. trotskyites are far more dangerous than the standard marxist/leninist as they are far more violent and driven. hence the reason trotsky met with an ice-pick in the head in mexico.

      globalism and socialism are one in the same. in the end its a small group of elitists who appoint themselves as leaders of the revolution at expense of everyone else. i would like to interject a bit of marx here to remind everyone that there can be no revolution if there is a strong and secure middle class. you do the math.

      Katherine,
      I went back to read your first post.

      First, it is truly possible he changed over time. Chambers did. But suspicion is warranted. How many communists just went into hiding, only to come out when their red diaper babies had power and control?

      Second, Communism is about imposing control through duping people into belief in a utopia. In short it is all about who has the power to kill. Winners have been Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Chávez, etc.

      Just like Che Guevara was Castro’s killer, Trotsky was Lenin’s killer. At the time Stalin outmaneuvered Trotsky, he could do so because Trotsky was in the field with his armies winning by killing, and Stalin could invoke fear of Trotsky in other party members.

      Communists outside the communist states first deny the horrors, then ditch the hero worship and follow new heroes. This repeats with each atrocity.

      When the mass murderer Trotsky was exiled, he presented an opposition to Stalin that was intellectual, and basically held out that we could have a purer form of communism. (Which proves anybody who followed him was stupid.). And he pushed for more revolution.

      Trotsky was murdered on Stalin’s orders in 1940. The year between Stalin allying with the hated NAZIs and Hitler invading the Soviets.

      I suppose. Kristol could have been like the stooges in CPUSA, flipping from hate of NAZIs, to love, and back to hate. But Trotsky and his followers were always enraged by NAZIs.

      So his hero was dead at the hands of the evil traitors to the cause. At the same time you say Kristol stopped being a Trotskyite. This makes it rather easy for him to be an anti-communist. But still be a ‘socialist’ leftie. One of those constant changes I mentioned for communists outside of the hell they create on earth.

      Also, Kristal was an intellectual who followed the ‘intellectual’. He made a living in intellectual circles making intellectual arguments. It stands to reason that he would keep this up even if he changed.

      Seems to me you have made a good case for him to feel betrayed each time he joins a new cause. Another reason to justify personal changes.

      But, if you are serious, the best way to find out would be to read his writings. That is how he made a living. Trying to persuade intellectuals and lead causes. Changes have to be justified in his writings.

    Heres a a wholesome Thanksgiving story. This isnt what you might think at first. What a fantastic idea, and a very excellent way to build civics and model citizens, not to mention giving these boys a mentor and showing them someone cares. I love it!

    “GREENVILLE, S.C. — At Thomas E. Kerns Elementary in Greenville, South Carolina, some students are getting more than a textbook education and that starts with what you wear, how you wear it and how to eat.
    Welcome to the “Gentlemen’s Club.” The school’s most sought-after group of 48 fourth and fifth graders.
    “The Gentlemen’s Club is not just teaching you how to be a gentleman,” Elijah Shanks, a fifth grade student said.
    “It teaches you to respect others and treat them how you would want to be treated,” Gavin Curtis, a 10-year-old fourth grader added.
    “Love who you are. Accept yourself for who you are and don’t let anybody get in the way of that,” Shanks said.
    “I think the Gentlemen’s Club impacts these young boys with a sense of belonging,” said Principal Mark Adams, who started the club last year.
    “We look at it as preparation for academics. Preparation for behavior, preparation for citizenship, because it’s our responsibility to prepare them for the next level,” Adams said.”

        That’s nice treehouseron. Now without trying to sound rude, I have to ask what South Carolinians are doing to rid us of the lousy people like Lindsey Graham, Trey Gowdy and others that they’ve put into both houses of Congress? Graham is easy to see through, yet he still gets reelected time and again. Gowdy has too many people fooled into thinking he’s a conservative, yet he has proven over and over again that he’s not and gets nothing significant done (e.g.; his Benghazi committee that did nothing). South Carolina is a lot like Arizona. Lots of good people there but for some reason they keep putting these lousy politicians in Washington.

          Why single out SC? Go ahead instead and name a state where “lots of good people” have AMERICA FIRST Senators serving them?

          Easy to blame “lots of good people” for bad Senators. But what choices do “good people” have in most of these Party-rigged primaries. Come general election, what are “good people” supposed to do, vote for the Democrat? Even the “lots of good people” of the Tea Party starting in 2009 made some horrific boo-boos like Toxic Ted, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee. All of us held our noses for the Presidential races in 2008 and 2012. What a disaster when “good people” had a lousy Presidential “choice” in 1992.

          One thing that 2016 showed us, is that both Parties have been rigging elections for some time now. Money, media, and outright lies have fooled THE BEST OF US……Good news is that we be awake now, thanks to a powerful Leader at the head of the powerful Trump Movement.

Wonderful way to show these kids they’re loved and valued by people in their school and community. Now, we need some classes on how to be a lady and be proud of it.

      Treating others as you’d like to be treated doesn’t mean others will always treat you well, but it does mean you know you did the right thing and you aren’t a lesser for doing, saying and thinking what’s right. These fellows are doing great. A blessing for the food and a blessing for them.

        Ironically, I forwarded the story to some friends and was quite surprised to get a reply that the parents should be doing that. I found this to be very shortsighted. How many times have out children, even in above average home situations, have worn a tie to even a special occasion dinner at home? Or, used stemware or cloth table linens? We are going to a beautiful, stately Southern mansion for Thanksgiving…but “please wear very casual clothes.” When living in the semi-tropics, many a Xmas saw us in shorts for dinner. When these young “gentlemen” go out into the work force, hopefully the lessons learned in this club will serve them well.

          It’s pretty obvious too many parents aren’t teaching this. Maybe many parents don’t know either or they think it’s unimportant now. Even if parents do teach appropriate behavior and dress, it’s also important for schools to reinforce the importance. It’s human nature for people to react more positively to well mannered, neatly dressed people with a good attitude.

          You’re right that these skills will serve them well. It’s just part of the real world. Knowing the rules of the road gives these budding gentlemen a competitive edge. I hope they all take it to heart and all do very well in life. Let’s also hope they don’t go to Berkeley.

    I wrote the following yesterday and found new data today that hammers home the point that the Economic Train is taking no prisoners!

    https://www.peoplespunditdaily.com/news/economy/2017/11/21/chicago-fed-national-activity-index-cfnai-soars-expansion-high-october/

    From the article linked above:

    The Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) rose to +0.65 in October, an expansion high that is significantly stronger than the forecast and average. The consensus forecast called for a +0.20 reading and ranged from +0.05 to +0.25.

    The 3-month average is also near a high, increasing to +0.28 in October from +0.01 in September.

    https://www.peoplespunditdaily.com/news/economy/2017/11/21/nar-existing-homes-sales-october/

    From the article linked above:

    The National Association of Realtors (NAR) said existing home sales in October rose 2.0% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.48 million, the strongest pace since earlier this summer. Existing home sales activity–which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops,–picked up for the second straight month in October.

    All four major regions saw increases and, after last month’s increase, sales are at their strongest pace since June (5.51 million).

    “Job growth in most of the country continues to carry on at a robust level and is starting to slowly push up wages, which is in turn giving households added assurance that now is a good time to buy a home,” Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist said. “While the housing market gained a little more momentum last month, sales are still below year ago levels because low inventory is limiting choices for prospective buyers and keeping price growth elevated.”

      Listening to this has reminded me of a frequent thought. There are occasional “official” events to which the current President has traditionally invited previous Presidents, real and faux, and they all rub noses and pretend to be great friends.

      After all of the vile badmouthing of President Trump, and all of that we have learned even since the election of the true motives of his predecessors, I want President Trump to break another tradition. I can’t bear the thought of any of them visiting the WH for any reason.

I feel bad for those ladies who were definitely harassed and abused, but I guess I have a hard time not seeing some of the problem was allowing more women to be in the dark about these men before they got tangled up with them which is why these ladies should have spoken up at least privately. If some of the new women knew, were told privately who to watch out for, and chose to get tangled up anyway to promote their careers, then they have no business crying about it now. It is truly astonishing how many, all over every field of employment, have come forward about all these men so recently. Zero tolerance should mean no one is afraid to speak up in the workplace if they need to, female or male.

    One of the women, who worked for Rose, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, wrote on her Facebook page:

    (Here is how women have enabled this…Zephyr)

    To my friends, family and community I wanted to explain why I lent my name to this story:
    When first approached by a reporter few weeks back, it was because former co-workers had identified me as a person who received public treatment that was clearly abusive. I decided to share some of my experiences with the reporter, off-record. To be completely honest, the entire exploration of re-living some of my time working with the show over these last few weeks have been heavy because it brought two obvious truths into focus: 1) When I was in my early 20s my self-worth was decimated, even before working at the show, and that is a major contributing factor to why I stayed in an abusive situation as long as I did. 2) We are living in a time where it is blindly apparent that the current systems we have created as a society have allowed for, and supported, layers of abuse. Abusers, and those they abuse, rarely operate in isolation. At the show, I was working in an environment that supported a spectrum of misconduct from unhealthy boundaries to outright physical abuse.

    Still, I had no desire to allow my identity to be public in this story. I do not revisit this time in my life often and I felt no need to take anyone down. I am also in a moment of incredible highs in my professional life and feel that I am fully living out my purpose; the last thing I want or need is to attach my name to a sexual assault story. Then late last week I was read excerpts of transcripts from the other women. Though many came before me, some women were attacked violently and repeatedly after the time I worked there. These stories helped me reframe my perspective. I felt that by withholding my identity, I was de-legitimatizing the experiences of these other women. I couldn’t be complicit in what silence meant for them, so I allowed my name to run with the story.

    My heart goes out to all the people who have been injured on an emotional, physical, sexual and spiritual level from this story and the thousand’s others across our nation. As overwhelming, challenging and all-encompassing the fallout from the #MeToo Campaign has been, it has allowed light, clarity and transparency into a very dark wound we all share. Change is hard; there is a lot of anger and confusion right now. When the dust settles, from this report and the dozens of others that will continue to come out about many other people, I am truly hopeful about our future. I do not believe this is a male problem, or a female problem, I believe we have a societal problem; a problem that can be solved if approached with honesty, humility and compassion. In my own life, I am surrounded by the most amazing men and women every day, I know what it looks and feels like to be seen, supported, valued, safe, and to truly thrive, because that is the life I live now. I know that my children will not live in the same world I was raised and part of that means that some of the broken systems must evolve.

    I love you all – thank you for being part of my life and helping to create and reflect a better future together.
    With Love

      Interesting that she never realized before now that her silence allowed Rose to continue abusing women who came after her.

      Seriously?

        Because sexual abuse by a liberal man isn’t a crime in a liberal womans minds. The victims are just disposable afterthoughts.

        At teh Second Clinton Trump debate my wife and mother in law were angry at Broaderick, Willys, and the other victims of Slick Willy.

      I clearly remember during the Clinton presidency a wonderful male coworker with impeccable manners talking about having to explain oral sex to his 8th grader. And of “lipstick parties” by jr. high age children. Vile, I tell you, just vile. Who ever heard of oral sex at 13?!! And all because “I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky…” And it depends on what the meaning of is, is”. Is there any wonder the culture deteriorated to common trash and abusive music lyrics and crotch grabbing and no dating in high school- just “hook-ups”? And lots of sexual abuse in Hollywood.(nothing new there, imho)

      But thankfully, the bleaching and cleaning of the country is well underway…

        I don’t have children, but I remember thinking the very same — oral sex talked about nonstop on the nightly news (aka the dinner hour) and then that man and his wife just continue to double down on the shame brought to the highest office in the land all these years later. How either of them can look themselves in the mirror is beyond me. No repentance, no shame — just their belief that they somehow deserve to be in the people’s house AGAIN. Spit.

        I vividly remember it because my sons were 11 and 13 at the time. The only thing they recall about President Bill Clinton is that a b-job is not really sex. Hubby was busy at that time trying to keep a lid on it. What happened after that (in the country as a whole) was an explosion of casual sexual behavior among the teens who did not deem what they were doing as sexual, despite the fact it clearly was.

    I have always disliked Donna Brazile but if anyone heard her being interviewed by Stu Varney this morning ……just pathetic. She is a sickening liar just like HRC and company and I believe she is out there at the direction of HRC. I believe the ONLY reason why she is out there is to keep blacks and Bernie supporters from jumping ship. One example….after admitting to giving the answers to HRC for the debate she is now walking that back with a spin. What a sickening stupid liar. So let’s not fall for her BS. She is no friend of the people.

          Nah. Brietbart has the ” Make Perpetual Middle East War” faction, e.g. Pollack and

Ben Shapiro used to be part of that “No Mideast Peace” Brietbart cabal, until he quit when they wouldn’t pile on Corey Lewandowsky over that Michelle Fields babe…..They don’t need a WH leaker to spew bile over McMasters. It upsets them that General McMasters has a realistic view of including Saudi’s and the GCC in a Peace Deal with Israel and the Palestinians.

          Even though McMaster’s strategy recommendations have succeeded brilliantly, they are still resentful that Erdogan’s consultant, General Flynn, was ousted in his favor. Breitbart is the Standard Bearer for Trump opposition from the Right.

      All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten
      Poem by Robert Fulghum

      Most of what I really need
      To know about how to live
      And what to do and how to be
      I learned in kindergarten.
      Wisdom was not at the top
      Of the graduate school mountain,
      But there in the sandpile at Sunday school.
      These are the things I learned:
      Share everything.
      Play fair.
      Don’t hit people.
      Put things back where you found them.
      Clean up your own mess.
      Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
      Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
      Wash your hands before you eat.
      Flush.
      Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
      Live a balanced life –
      Learn some and think some
      And draw and paint and sing and dance
      And play and work everyday some.
      Take a nap every afternoon.
      When you go out into the world,
      Watch out for traffic,
      Hold hands and stick together.
      Be aware of wonder.

  30. Asking my fellow Treepers to help me publicize this possible disaster in the making. PDJT is considering appointing Mohamed el-Erian as Vice Chair of the Fed. This man was, at one time, being considered for Prime Minister of Egypt under Morsi!!!! Good grief! Like we don’t already have enough MB agents embedded within our Federal agencies! I have posted on FB but would appreciate any of you who are on Twitter sharing this as well. I have also posted on the WH website – more doing that would help also. Thanks.

    And these social media accounts are allowed. Outrageous.

    Pro-ISIS internet channels are calling for the assassination of President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, and have shared personal details of the child’s life on its social media networks, including the address of his school, according to a media monitoring organization.

    ISIS supporters, on a well-known Telegram channel, shared the name and address of Barron Trump’s school and are calling for backers of the terrorist organization to assassinate him, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.

    I haven’t had time to read through all the posts for today so I am probably addressing something that’s been brought up already. But I think it should be said so I’ll say it here. I’m sure many saw the notice that Mark Levin is getting a show on Fox News. I would hope that would be yet another good reason for people to finally turn Fox off. He was a big anti-Trumper throughout the election. Regardless of what he’s saying now, he’s no better than his favorite politician, Ted Cruz, who we all know that Trump was right about him. Fox may be adding some new shows that appear to be better than Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly (although it wouldn’t take much to be better than either of those two), but it doesn’t change the fact that they still overall don’t do American any good. If you have to watch TV news, then watch OANN, but preferably you will rise above the mindlessness of getting news from the TV and get it from other sources you can find online.

        OANN is good, but TV is basically a mindless format. There is little, if any critical thinking.
        As I mentioned before, if you have to use TV as your source, then they’re the only good one. But they still do not give nearly what reading will give. As for not having time to surf the internet, do what many people do and skim through the comments here at CTH and check out the links the readers provide. You’ll get much more information than you will on TV. And one last thing that most people will find offensive, but it’s true. Years ago I was challenged to read more and watch and listen less. I said I didn’t have time and the person who said it told me that we make time for what is important to us. He was right. I changed my priorities and gave up other stuff to read more and become more informed. Our society’s weaknesses stem from lack of educating our selves and practicing critical thinking. No information format will challenge us to use our minds more and think deeper than reading will.

    The only person in Senate anywhere near not pumping out standard form answers is Luther Strange. It’s time to extract his name from the Moore campaign and Breitbart’s tentacles of unproven slurs. No matter who Ala votes for, truth is clarity and Breitbart-Bannon has muddied the waters for far too long. We barely have enough good people with intelligence working on Maga side, we don’t need to be shooting them down on suppositions. There will no doubt be a role for Luther if not Ala, so please don’t start parroting Bannon sound bites. He’s a loose cannon.

        __________________________________________
        Bannon failed Trump by badmouthing Strange and the people of Alabama took Bannon as their elder and voted for Moore. That is how it looks o me looking into Alabama.
        I personally find Strange more acceptable and was pleased that POTUS supported him.
        Concerning McConnell supported Strange because he was already in he Senate.
        Bannon , Gorka and Farage turned their back on Trump for heir own agenda. By the way anyone who supports Cruz the way Bannon and Gorka have do not become instant friends of Trump. Moore is going to be a problem for MEGA and whee is Bannon now…?
        Trump said “Strange voted for everything he Trump as for.” If we do not believe P Trump then we are saying he lied.
        Now we are stuck with Moore and lets hope Alabama goes out and votes for him .

    the latest polls in Germany:

    CDU and SPD down, FDP (who broke the talks, saying “better a no than governing wrongly”) up, Greens also up, AfD and Left stagnating (all with error margins).
    So the most positive force is FDP with Lindner, they are the most clear and have the most workable positions. Kind of Macronish positions, but of course they are much smaller than he now.
    They have one interesting position, that I just found: 3% of BIP for international security, which is in the following para (german sorry) which also says, relations to US should be top priority:

      Charles Payne has been making similar statements. He does frequent segments where he sort of looks under the hood, if you will, of the economic situation and reviews the fundamentals that are underpinning the current economic boom. He believes the fundamentals are on solid ground and are true indicators of what is fueling the boom.

      So Charles tends to hit on a lot of Main Street, small business type, economic factors that are experiencing a significant boom.

      Thank you, PDJT. Those fools who prate about this all being a result of BO’s policies finally reaching fruition are so drunk on the Kool Aid they have lost their senses.
