  2. Got to laugh at the IOC and Russia.

    We forget about Marion Jones, and Justin Gatlin and Lance Armstrong. And here is a list of the current ones under suspension.

    http://www.usatf.org/About/Anti-Doping/Doping-Suspensions.aspx/

    And from the IOC, a group filled with so many corrupt individuals.

    Why does this have to be related to nations, and not individuals? So many other nations do it too, including China. The latter may even be state sponsored. I think we all know this is political.

    But here is the danger as I see it. They will allow the clean ones to compete under no affiliation to Russia. What they are trying to do, is to make the Olympics shake off it’s nationalistic tendencies. They want to get others to compete under the world flag, and not their nations flag. Just watch. This is their end game. They get to punish Russia, which they just can’t help themselves from doing as they can’t let their own politics go; they get to have athletes compete under no national affiliation, and they get a platform to push their globalist agenda. All the while blaming Russia.

    You watch. In 20 years time, no athletes will represent their nation. Just the globe, under their one world government ideals. Like the EU, they may even have their own flag and anthem by then. Man, these people are insufferable.

    • Four years ago in May, I was witness to a miracle. I’ve never been pro choice. But this day the whole world changed.
      My granddaughter was born at 27 weeks. She was 2 lbs 14 oz. at birth.
      I spent the next 2.5 months in a NICU unit with my daughter. Watched in that room things I never dreamed possible.
      They had to operate on her 7 days after she was born.
      Today at 4 years old she is as perfect as perfect could be.

      I also became friends with others in that room. One child was born at 24 weeks. One was born at 23 and one born at 20 weeks.

      Ever since that experience every time someone brings up abortion, my blood boils.
      I saw with my own eyes babies born and babies fighting for life like my granddaughter at ages where so think it’s fine and legal to abort.

      You can not just walk into those rooms at the NICU. But if you ever did, your life would change forever on the subject.

      To give you some idea about size. Her first clothes were doll clothes. I have a picture of a doll that belongs to my other granddaughters wearing that outfit. The doll is about the size of a remote control for cable TV. Her first hat, knitted by volunteers for the unit was to small for any doll my other two granddaughters had.

      To me there is no doubt when life begins. I’ve seem it and lived it.

          But Isabelle was so tiny, for the first week we could only use the holes in the sides to touch her.
          My daughter is not a big girl but the baby would hold her finger and not let go.
          Her hands were so small she couldn’t wrap them around my daughters pinky.

          Please don’t tear. The stories and the thoughts have brought all of us to a new understanding of life.
          It’s hope and miracles. She is the youngest of my 3 granddaughters. But something very special happens every time she sees me and hugs me tight and tell me she loves her Noono.

          It reminds me that life and what there is out there is so much bigger and better that what we can ever imagine.

            I have a couple of friends who made the choice to have an abortion. There is not a year that goes by that they don’t think of what they loss. They are only a small % of those who wish they could turn back the clock and have the child they recklessly gave up. Actually it was one of these friends of mine that turned me on to this song.

    “Astonishing And Disturbing” Email Exposes Mueller Deputy As Anti-Trumper

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-05/astonishing-and-disturbing-email-exposes-yet-
    another-mueller-agent-andrew-weissmann-

    “… Judicial Watch has released emails obtained via FOIA that reveal another agent and a Mueller deputy, Andrew Weissmann, praising former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ efforts to defy a direct order from President Trump on the enforcement of his travel ban executive order.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Weissmann

    Weissmann Served as the FBI’s General Counsel Under Robert Mueller
    Weissmann Led the Enron Task Force but Not Without Controversy
    Weissmann Donated Money to President Barack Obama

    Some Conservatives Have Noted That Weissmann Was in a Position of Power During the Clinton Uranium Controversy
    Fox News explained of conservative objection to Mueller: “Hill investigators also are looking into a Russian firm’s uranium deal that was approved by the Obama administration in 2010 despite reports that the FBI – then led by Mueller – had evidence of bribery involving a subsidiary of that firm.” The Wall Street Journal called for Mueller to step down because the FBI once considered paying the dossier author. The Journal’s point is that Mueller, as a former FBI director, is too closely tied to the FBI to independently investigate its role in the Russian matters.

    Notes National Review, “Interestingly, as the plea agreement shows, the Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section was then run by Andrew Weissmann, who is now one of the top prosecutors in Robert Mueller’s ongoing special-counsel investigation of suspected Trump collusion with Russia.”

    http://heavy.com/news/2017/10/andrew-weissman-weissman-mueller-investigation-lawyer-attorney/

    Back in July Fox News reported:

    Mueller probe: Meet the lawyers who gave $$ to Hillary, now investigating team Trump

    “… Of the 15 attorneys currently on staff for Mueller, at least seven have donated to Democratic candidates and campaigns, including Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton. The rest have not made political donations, according to federal records; and none of the attorneys on Mueller’s roster donated money to Trump. ”

      Reporting this meaningless gossip is all about demoralizing the base so we won’t turn out in the 2018 midterms and the Dems can say they won because of a PDJT backlash. They really don’t understand cold anger at all.

      Turnout in midterm elections is historically low, and I believe the Dems will pull out all the stops on their election fraud schemes. We need to get out the vote, 2018 is as important as 2016 was. We all need to get to work.

        In MO I am concerned, Josh Hawley has tossed his hat in the ring, but after just being elected AG (saying that he was NOT using it as a stepping stone to higher office), and, though I have no beef with him otherwise, he was recruited by Ret. Sen. John Danforth, an emphatic and vocal NeverTrumper.

        I was planning on looking at a couple of the very legitimate unknowns (both retired Navy), but now President Trump has endorsed Hawley. Don’t want to create another Alabama situation.

          Here in WI we have Drate Sen Leah Vulke and a Marine veteran named Kevin Nicholson. Nicholson is also a former Dem, and he was endorsed by the Club for Growth. He is trying to align himself with Trump, saying he is a political outsider like the President. Vulke has a solid conservative record, she’s blasted as “extreme” by the left because of her support of defunding Planned Parenthood and blocking the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare.

          Eric Hovde is also considering throwing his hat in the ring. He’s a business man and investor who came in second in the last primary for this seat. That election the Republicans used the splitter strategy and a GOPe former governor Thompson won and then ran a terrible campaign against Tammy Baldwin.

They’ve got the big money, but just being a vet doesn’t mean you know how to get things done in politics. Leah does. I wish I had more than a few dollars to help her.

        Would like to ask about the % of Illegal and children of Illegals & DACAers in the schools involved.
        From what I have been seeing not only do most of the children of Illegals enter school speaking very little English if any, but DACAers are sending their kids to school with very little English knowledge. It appears that these groups do NOT speak any English at home, & feel it is up to the school to teach their children English.
        When a teacher has a class filled with with a large % of non-English speaking students it is hard to teach any type of academics to the students. I have many teacher friends at the elementary level who just don’t what to do since their hands are tied, and the English speaking students are the ones getting robbed of a decent education.

      An angry Zinke called the claim — made in large type on the company’s home page — “nefarious, false and a lie.”

      Zinke told reporters the land targeted by Trump remains protected because it is still under federal control.

    here we go – Franken’s one foot out the door as they keep eating their own

    The stunning fall of Democratic Rep. John Conyers — who resigned Tuesday amid a growing sexual-harassment scandal — has left confusion, anger, resentment and bewilderment inside the ranks of the Congressional Black Caucus, a group that Conyers helped found nearly four decades ago.

    Many CBC members see a double standard at play. They won’t say the treatment of Conyers was racist necessarily — and all express strong support for his alleged victims — but they think white politicians accused of similar misconduct like Blake Farenthold, Al Franken, Roy Moore and Donald Trump get a “benefit of the doubt” that black politicians don’t enjoy.

        Why does Bannon-Breitbart rehash this tabloid stuff? Oh right…..cheap clickbait. The best is to not give Zervos any publicity …..but that would defeat Bannon’s purpose. The Roy Moore allegations is enough, we have to feed it further and lump President Trump into the dirty laundering. I’m sick of BB and its subterfuge. I’ve noticed ever since Bannon was kicked off the Trump team, people are avidly linking BB garbage here. BB is depressing – not MAGA at all. Toxic mind rot is its effect.

          I said BB, but it was actually TGP. After reading the whole article, Zervos DID subpoena PDT. The subpoena dates back to March, but the court record was not available (or found) until last month. Buzzfeed is also involved in this story, so I’m taking an extra tsp. of salt.

    • Impeachment articles he introduced in October state that Trump “brought disrepute on the presidency” and “undermined the integrity of his office” but did not make criminal accusations.

      Seems you can say anything you want as long as you do not have to prove it.
      Funny it seems the only people in the world that believe any of that are the Democrats, the North Koreans, Iran, the UK and German leaders. France is to wishie washie to commit to anything. So they were not included.

    EX-CIA AGENT: H.R. McMaster Authorized NSA to Spy on Donald Trump Jr. — Sent Intel to Facility Owned By George Soros

    December 5, 2017 by Joshua Caplan

Maguire, reportedly revealed during a fund raising meeting for an intelligence gathering operation in Afghanistan, that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster “authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.” (WTH)

      Well – THAT linked-to article is, guess what, ANOTHER unsubstantiated The Intercept story.

      So it goes with TGP… unsubstantiated regurgitated fake news TGP itself “props up” by pointing to their own other “reporting” on other fake news. Fake news on top of fake news on top of ..

          I trust zero…. I take in information in from all over and use common sense & critical thinking to take it apart and decide whats credible, what’s pure propaganda and what is the agenda behind it. – I tend to pay zero attention to what is obviously a talking point being tossed from left to right at every outlet. I see that sort of thing as a “bone” to chase so I look the other way to see what am i being distracted from instead,

          These days the news tends to be the opposite of truth so i look there first.

          I form an opinion of my own, then I mull it over and compare it to others like CTH and I often find that Sundance has thought of or paid attention to different things than me and has a different take based on that additional detail that i then take into my own considerations. which is why i love coming here.. no where else can you find so many details and connections that are based on critical thinking rather than based on an agenda to deceive.

      Why do so many accede to the Leftists decision to refer to illegal aliens as illegal “immigrants”? I keep seeing that from sources who should know better.

      Framing the narrative. Criminal alien = illegal alien = foreign national illegally present = illegal invader. NOT an immigrant. My great-grandfather was an immigrant, he went through Ellis Island with his family where they were checked for diseases, it was verified that he had a skill, and there was a sponsor for the family. My sister-in-law is an immigrant, she applied, waited in line, took her test, went through the Dept. of Naturalization, took an oath, and paid her fees. It is an insult to immigrants that the same label is given to criminal entrants.

      Flake went public to brag how he would only sign the tax bill if Senate was willing to discuss DACA at some future date, and Breitbart ran with it thoroughly altho many liberal outlets are touting Flake’s success too. What likely happened is that PDT agreed in concept that when considering legal immigration he would consider those applicants who were here out of “no fault” of their own first provided they meet unmet corporate hire needs. Legal hispanic immigration has an allotment anyways and Trump is fair.

          Here at the treehouse, we really underestimate the power of media propaganda and the numbers who buy it. It is where the majority get their information. They do not spend time verifying info. That is a fact and we need to be aware of that. Plus, this tax bill(yet to be determined) is confusing. I bet half the people here don’t know how much they are getting back. I know I don’t.

          The most simple and effective way to give people immediate relief, as well as gain their support and trust, would have been to cut payroll taxes. So very simple and straightforward. See that in your check immediately. One bill, 2 or 3 pages to cut taxes and then work another bill to address small business and corporate reductions. These big bills have just become vehicles to hide all the pork projects and con the people. Business as usual in the swamp.
