    Cavuto is really pushing Wolfe’s statements about the President being unstable. He has asked every person he has on today about it hoping to get someone to agree with the statement. All have brushed it off as lies, and unfounded. I never watch Cavuto, just happened to have it on while folding clothes, the guy is a pos hack who tries to undermine the President every chance he gets, but today he went way beyond his usual hateful rhetoric.

    ok if you want a laugh follow the Iron Sheik on twitter. Yes it is indeed THAT Iron Sheik. He’s a Trump supporter who says the funniest things. He doesn’t actually type this – his manager does. But Sheik’s dictations will make your sides split with laughter. He hates Crooked Hillary. This is one of his tame posts. Everything else is too graphic for here. Go look.

    Note to NeverTrumps: Trump’s Character Is Admirable/

    January 5, 2018
    By Karin McQuillan


    “As more and more people who hate Trump are forced to admit his achievements as president, they are doubling down on character assassination. Even Trump voters often preface their satisfaction with Trump’s actions by criticizing his tweets or his personality.”

    “Here’s an alternate take on things: Trump’s character is responsible for his outstanding performance in his first year as president. If you want to know who someone is, you look at what he does. What we have: a booming economy, growing jobs, more lawful governance, fewer regulations, more global security. What character traits this took: hard work, focus, commitment, courage, honesty, independence, incorruptibility, self-confidence, love of excellence. The list of Trump’s positive character traits goes on and on. You don’t get achievements independent of character.”

    I think Trump’s character is excellent.

Yep- that’s proof right there he’s illiterate in incurious.

    The collective nobody, no-nothing, no-talent, no-achievement loosers that are given a voice in this great country baffles me. How did so many nare-do-wells get a public forum? When did we become a nation who pays attention to the musings of retards?

    Adm Mike Rogers has announced his retirement in the spring. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/nsa-director-to-leave-agency-in-the-spring-report/article/2645144

    Fake News says Adm Rogers’ retirement is one of many leaving NSA in droves due to “low morale” at the Agency.

    What Fake News will not tell you is that the loss of talent and low morale at NSA began under Gen Keith Alexander and reported by CyberScoop on 6 Dec 2016.

    “The retired general (Alexander) and other insiders say a combination of economic and social factors — including **negative press coverage** — have played a part.”

    “The rate at which these cyber-tacticians are exiting public service has increased over the last several years and has gotten considerably worse over the last 12 months”

    “20 percent of the workforce (are) doing 80 percent of the actual work…At some point watching this behavior even for motivated people becomes highly demotivating.”

    Call the Fake News out for what they are – LIARS.

    Odds are D.C. knows that Adm Rogers is the one who caught Obama Inc doing illegal 702(17) spying on Pres Trump, which means Adm Rogers is now dead man walking in D.C.

    All the best to Adm Rogers in retirement. And thank you, sir, for protecting the constitutional rights of Americans.

    ‘PANIC LEVEL ABSURD’: Limbaugh BLOWS APART The Idea That Trump Is Childlike

    Liked by 2 people

    • Rush Limbaugh loves Trump more than just about anyone that has ever come along.

      Before Trump got involved in the political arena, is was Rush that was the one brave enough to take a tomahawk right through the phony leftist anti-American agenda and expose that the entire media complex is nothing but liberal slanted fake news, and that liberalism is the root of all evil in America.

      And they treated Rush just like they did Trump. Rush was the ONLY conservative voice in the the entire country at one point. There were no conservative newspapers, there were only a few channels on TV and 100 percent of it was lunatic leftist drivel. You had to go into the trenches and far crevices of outsider society to get any right leaning periodicals – usually ordering some magazine that came once a month, that 99 percent of the country had never heard of.

      And then Rush came along with a blow torch and blew the left’s stranglehold on media to pieces almost single handedly, while no one else in the world had the guts to challenge them and call them out, and tell the truth, and speak to the country like a regular person —- not some egg head academia that’s never had a job in his life.

      And they attempted to destroy Rush’s life for it. But he never wavered. Ever. And he just kept going and going and going. Almost everyone that tried it caved. They couldn’t take the negative press, the lying fake media, and the violent, radical hateful leftwing.

      Rush paved the way for Fox News. Rush paved the way for all conservative voices that came to find a home in modern society. He showed that they were the majority, not the tiny bubbles of Hollywood DC.

      The one thing he didn’t want to do, was ever run for President. He admitted it wasn’t worth the trouble and it was a giant step backwards in terms of riches, privacy, etc. etc. He admitted that he had guts, but not those kinds of guts.

      Thankfully… Trump was willing to. And he’s better at it than anyone.

      I am grateful that Rush got to see Trump come along in his lifetime… cause he’s exactly what Rush has been waiting for all this time.

        For well over a year I was unable to listen to Rush. He followed his usual non-endorsement of candidates and didn’t endorse Donald Trump during the primaries. But at the same time he didn’t endorse anyone else. It annoyed me that he didn’t look deeply into Ted Cruz but kept saying positive things about him one day and then Donald Trump the next. He seemed uninformed about who they both were and was lackluster, even boring, with an undercurrent of apprehension that Hillary just might pull it off in the final.

        After the Republican convention, though, Rush was bucked up and started once again being the guy we’d listened to for years…funny, plugged in, happy even, allowing himself to hope that Donald Trump just might win and keep our nation from going over the cliff. When our man actually won the Electoral College, Rush was a very happy boy. I believe he was sincere about that, and each day his joy at being with the winning team gets stronger. Yes, there was talk about him being a sell-out, a shill for globalists, in it all for himself only. But that criticism seemed a bit too much to me.

        It’s interesting at the end of this show clip he says, “Each and every day I find out just how wrong I was when I was assuming certain positive things about people who live and work in Washington. It’s just something to admit I have been this naïve but at least the learning never stops.”

        Yes, indeed, the learning never stops.

When I think back to 1988 when Rush first made his appearance on the air, THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE! No Fox News, no Hannity, no Levin, no Savage, no nobody…just a lonely voice in the wilderness paddling against the current and taking the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. He paved the way for EVERYBODY…and to some degree even Mr. Trump himself. We have so little going for ourselves in terms of media, what other choice do we have? Who else would I listen to when I’m driving around, but I guess I’m just a glass half-full guy, sigh.

        Excellent post, Politik. Rush was a life saver for me when I started listening to him in the 1990’s. I think 1993? Anyway, I totally agree with your evaluation of him and what he has done for conservatives in America. I have been educated and entertained all these years and I have to say that today, Rush was about as “worked up” and explicit in his dialogue in defense of Trump as I have ever heard him. It was wonderful to listen to him fight back against the lame stream, dishonest, cowardly, dirty, disgusting msm. They sicken me. Thank you, Rush.


        • WSB says:

          Rush was tasked with fawning over Cruz and Rubio and blasting Donald Trump after he signed his new contract with his little handlers who were anti-Trump…iheart Radio and a subsidiary of Bain Capitol, if I am not mistaken. There were others like Laura Ingraham, etc. if you want to look up those names in the CTH archives, the articles are there.

          Sorry, I know Rush is attempting to get back into the good graces of President Trump…we’ll see.

If carried out as described, by 2027, about 970 miles of the 2,000-mile southwest border would have some sort of fencing or wall separating the U.S. from Mexico

      The pending 2018 budget includes $1.6 billion to build 60 miles new barriers in Texas and to upgrade 14 miles older barriers in California……

        Trump’s DHS Says 700-Mile Border Wall To Cost Just $1.8 Billion Per year
        5 Jan 2018

        President Donald Trump’s 700-mile border wall would cost just $1.8 billion annually for ten years, according to the Wall Street Journal.

        The expected construction cost is only 1 cent for every $20 spent by the federal government.

        The Journal‘s article said the Department of Homeland Security’s unreleased plan had been sent to a group of Senators: […]

        The proposed cost $1.8 billion per year cost would consume less than one-2,088th of the 2018 federal budget, expected to be around $3,800 billion. In turn, the wall’s cost would be offset by a reduced northward flow of illegals and drugs, so cutting the federal government’s cost for welfare, unemployment and policing.

        Democrats denounced the 1-cent-for-every-$20 construction plan: […]

      LARP or not (I’m leaning toward not), there’s been an incredible amount of research done on the Chans, Reddit, VOAT and elsewhere since QAnon’s first post. I’ve followed the “saga” from the very beginning and have learned so much.

      There’s a wealth of potentially relevant information now archived, in multiple locations/on multiple platforms, as a result of the digs, and it’s reasonable to assume that a signigicant number of people are even more awoke than they were two months ago.

      Further, if and when the Big Ugly goes full public (televised perp walks, for example), the database of players and their possible nefarious connections and activities already exists, for quick and instant reference (and confirmation), all as a result of QAnon.

      I suspect the mass chaos on 8ch tonight means at least two things:

      1) We are directly over target.
      2) The REALLY Big Ugly is finally at hand.

There has been a concerted and rather obvious effort to delegitimize Q because he is for real. They never make such an effort to destroy things that are false.

    Chuck Zito Sick of H’wood Witch Hunt And Just Try Me, Trump Haters!!!

    Chuck Zito’s letting his shirt do the talking when it comes to pledging allegiance to President Trump … but he’s also got a mouth on him and probably a fist, too.

    The former “Oz” star, and real life badass, was in Bev Hills Thursday when we asked about Trump’s sexual misconduct accusers — his shirt led us down the path — and Chuck went off.

    First, he called the wave of allegations in Hollywood a “witch hunt” that was hurting his close friends. When he addressed Trump’s accusers, his response was pretty much … see my shirt.

    But a bit more menacing. Basically, Chuck’s begging haters to make a move.

    Do believe that at least 10% voted for Trump primarily due to Trump’s campaign promise on Illegals, most likely it more than 1/4.
    If Trump gives in even a milometer on Illegals/DACAers then I will make a bet that a good 25% or maybe more will be screaming, & not voting for him in 2020…
    Putting Non-Americans, who are actually criminals over legal law-abiding Americans will and is not setting well with Trump supporters.
    The Last Refugee is full of Trump do or die supporters, however it quite obvious by the thread on Trump’s DACA meeting that a good percentage on here are NOT happy with giving into DACAers.
