    Do you know where the President was today? After his victory yesterday?

    via the Daily Caller:

    There were no official events on President Trump’s White House schedule Thursday. Many assumed that was in order to have leverage to orchestrate the signing of the Republican tax bill.

    So when the president exited the White House unannounced, many reporters we’re puzzled.

    Instead of a ceremony for the legislation, Trump spent his day at Walter Reed Hospital.

    The hospital is the largest military hospital in the country and is the first stop stateside for many wounded American military members.

    Trump’s unannounced visit included meeting with wounded active-duty service members and their families. When the president arrived at the hospital, he sat with family members of the wounded.

      Obama betrayed Americans on the field of battle.

      “Then something unexpected happened. While agents waited for the green light, the al Qaeda operative’s name, as well as information about the CIA’s classified surveillance and plan to kill him in Pakistan, suddenly appeared in the U.S. press.

      “Abdullah al-Shami, it turned out, was an American citizen, and President Obama and his national security advisers were torn over whether the benefits of killing him would outweigh the political and civil liberties backlash that was sure to follow.

      “In interviews with several current and former officials, the al-Shami case was cited as an example of what critics say was the Obama White House’s troublesome tendency to mishandle some of the nation’s most delicate intelligence — especially regarding the Middle East — by leaking classified information in an attempt to sway public opinion on sensitive matters.

      You know, I have been paying attention and I agree. I haven’t had ONE PERSON, not one person, give me the careful corporate “Happy Holidays.” Every single person has greeted me with Merry Christmas.

      And this year I have so far only received two cards that say Happy Holidays, and one of those was from a couple where one is Christian and the other Jewish.

      And I had to do some driving around today and I was noticing the Christmas lights. As others have noted there are more in my area this year, bigger yard displays and more lights.

    NEW IG REPORT

    Great Thread need to unroll and view

    The goal of this thread is not so much to point out the incompetence/corruption of the Obama VA. We all knew that. The goal is to illustrate how to access the IG Reports and the ever important findings and recommendations in advance of Michael Horowitz forthcoming report on Department of Justice’s handling of the 2016 Election and Hillary Clinton investigations. Michael Horowitz created oversight.gov on October 1st, 2017. He wants the public involved in the findings and recommendations of the Inspectors General. Let’s oblige him.

      They would say that “immigrants commit fewer crimes than native born” which has NOTHING to do with Illegal Immigrant crime rate!!!! I have started looking at the numbers behind the numbers (including polls, surveys and statistics) as Sundance has taught me. And in every study citing lower crime rates by immigrants they are actually citing lower crime rate by actual “immigrants” only not illegal immigrants.

      Another aspect is that they throw that stat at those of us wanting to stop illegal immigration. The majority of Trump supporters, conservatives and those against illegal immigration are not in the high crime areas of large cities and other Dem controlled areas. Native born rural and Native born urban have 2 different crime rates. Take away the urban high crime rates and the US is actually pretty safe and low crime.

        • Far lower compensation beginning in 2018.
        • Far lower compensation-base for figuring Retirement Compensation, beginning in 2018.

        CEOs are flying the coop at the moment they can MAXIMIZE RETIREMEMNT COMPENSATION.

            While I, on the other hand, have no problem believing the Clintons are involved in far worse than kidney harvesting on the black market. The tie-in for this “Dr.” and the Clintons will be human-trafficking and/or pedo-gate.

            It perplexes me that people can’t (or refuse to) wrap their minds around how evil these people are. It’s all right there, the evil is right in front of your face, for DECADES.

            And yet many people, even those like Kyle who are predisposed to believe and can believe lots of other horrible crimes committed by the Clintons, still have psychological lines they won’t or cannot cross.

            I would not be surprised to find the Clintons caught on videotape participating in the re-enactment of the Satanic rape scene in Rosemary’s Baby. We’re WAY past the point that anything should surprise us about these people.

            There was a three-part article on Breitbart earlier this year about Sally Quinn’s ‘memoirs’ in which she admitted to being an occultist who used hexes and black magic to harm people, and believes she has caused other peoples’ death by doing so.

            She runs in the same circles as the Podestas, who we know from Wikileaks attend ‘Spirit Cooking’ parties. Parties where people like Marina Abromovich (sp?) have recipes including ‘morning urine’, blood and fresh semen.

            This is openly Satanic.

            And Podesta was chief of staff to the woman who would be POTUS.

            So what exactly would Satanists NOT do?

            What should surprise us?

            I think we’re going to find out a whole lot more that the political-class in general and the demonrat leadership in particular are involved in.

            Things a lot of people will have a hard time believing.

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Dick Clark Productions says it has cut ties with the Miss America Organization over internal emails by pageant senior leadership that ridiculed past winners’ appearance, intelligence and sex lives.

    The Huffington Post reported Thursday that the Miss America Organization’s CEO, Sam Haskell, exchanged emails with a writer for the televised pageant and others that included harsh and sometimes defamatory comments about past winners.

    Dick Clark Productions, which produces the nationally televised pageant broadcasts, tells The Associated Press it has cut ties with the pageant over the emails, calling them “appalling.”

    The comments are in stark contrast to the glowing, supportive statements Haskell repeatedly made in public about past title winners.

    Haskell told the AP he would respond on Friday; the Miss America Organization says he has apologized to the board.

    UK Economist states the obvious: There are plenty of economic opportunities outside of the EU, if that’s what the EU wants to hang their hat on as pressure to go against Brexit.

    I want to apologize to Everyone for my barrage of posts today – I’m so wound up about the EO and all that it represents…it’s like 100 watts went on, and I finally Realized what the moment below actually meant for America. I thought back to all the times the media screamed “You’ve never sacrificed anything for your country!”. If this hasn’t been a sacrifice, I don’t know what is.

    God Bless the Trump Family – and many many other Patriots – who are giving us back our Republic
    “Enjoy the Fireworks!!”

      I have my fingers crossed that all the wealth gets confiscated from these crooks (remember what Sessions was working on first thing?) and goes back to our country to pay down the debt the Loser left us with (or build the wall!) They’d better not walk away with slaps on the wrists and still enjoying a lavish lifestyle off of our backs 😡

      I’ve enjoyed your barrage of posts but have to admit, some of them were mysterious. So I will just wait for further information and an explanation.

      Regina, Please don’t apologize, you provide a plethora of information, you and many others, which I would never otherwise find all in one place. I had to abandon reading the Open Thread after a few weeks at the CTH when it seemed to be purely [at that time at least] a long sequence of cat pictures and therefore a waste of time.

      Regina, oh thank so much for posting the most glorious fireworks display I‘ve ever seen .
      Yes I have over 60 years seen many but none ever had as much important meaning as these on PDT’s inauguration day.
      Yes this American man has sacrificed much for country, ( not ever to take away from our brace military that have given all! ) but PDT as a private citizen, not a politician to have stepped up to the plate and put his family in the background to put Americans in the foreground. To put our country first!
      Watching this again made me greatful, and glad with tears of joy, relief, and thankful to God for hearing our prayers for a good leader, and a decent man.
      I truly believe that PDT loves this country.
      Thanks for a reminder, a nice early Christmas present. Merry Christmas….bkitty

    Christopher Steele … was a lot more confident of his charges when he wrote his now-notorious 2016 dossier than he is today in defending it in a libel lawsuit. – https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/dec/20/christopher-steele-hedges-russia-dossier-claims-ag/

    I expect the sexual abuse cases will be opening people’s minds to accept the truth about what’s happening to the children around the world with human trafficking. I’ve heard these people described as sick individuals especially with the satanic spirit cooking. With all the weird symptoms showing up in HRC and Pelosi, I thought I would see if there’s a disease that cannibals are susceptible to. God’s law of consequence always has a way of biting evil in the butt. Then I came upon this, a disease called Kuru. Look at the stages, this sounds like Hillary’s health problems.

    Kuru:
    [9] Before the onset of clinical symptoms, an individual can also present with prodromal symptoms including headache and joint pain in the legs.[11]

    In the first (ambulant) stage, the infected individual may exhibit unsteady stance and gait, decreased muscle control, tremors, difficulty pronouncing words (dysarthria), and titubation. This stage is named the ambulant because the individual is still able to walk around despite symptoms.[11]

    In the second (sedentary) stage, the infected individual is incapable of walking without support and suffers ataxia and severe tremors. Furthermore, the individual shows signs of emotional instability and depression, yet exhibits uncontrolled and sporadic laughter. Despite the other neurological symptoms, tendon reflexes are still intact at this stage of the disease.[11]

    In the third and final (terminal) stage, the infected individual’s existing symptoms, like ataxia, progress to the point where they are no longer capable of sitting without support. New symptoms also emerge: the individual develops dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, which can lead to severe malnutrition. They may also become incontinent, lose the ability to speak and become unresponsive to their surroundings, despite maintaining consciousness.[11] Towards the end of the terminal stage patients often develop chronic ulcerated wounds that can be easily infected. An infected person usually dies within three months to two years after the first terminal stage symptoms, often because of pneumonia or infection.[12]
