    I figured everyone here could use a laugh. My mother was getting her house cleaned, and one of the cleaners said, “So, what do you think about Trump?” It was apparently said in a condescending way, making it clear that she didn’t like him. My mom replied that she liked President Trump very much. She loves our President. The cleaner replied, “So you like Chris Christie too then? I guess you’re Catholic and a Republican.” I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean considering the ridiculous comments by the Pope. My mom was so angry. She’s planning to call the cleaning company and tell them to never send this cleaner to her house again.

      Know someone who had to call an electrical company and tell them about a creepy anti-Jewish guy they had making calls.

      I was there when he came. The guy was so disgusting, hope they fired his A$$, frankly.

      I got lucky! I had a painter here recently working in the basement, and discovered he was a Trump fan. As a bonus he was also CTH fan. After some time yakking, I realized I was keeping him from his work. I would go upstairs to let him get back to work. It wouldn’t be long until he would find an excuse to come and ask me something, and the conversation would change quickly to politics again. This happened time and time again.
      I kept his business card, definitely will call again.

    Statement by the President on the Iran Nuclear Deal

    No one should doubt my word. I said I would not certify the nuclear deal—and I did not. I will also follow through on this pledge. I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States in fixing significant flaws in the deal, countering Iranian aggression, and supporting the Iranian people. If other nations fail to act during this time, I will terminate our deal with Iran. Those who, for whatever reason, choose not to work with us will be siding with the Iranian regime’s nuclear ambitions, and against the people of Iran and the peaceful nations of the world.

        And I agree with him that he should start recording his meetings with the crummy demonrats to keep them from telling lies about what he said. Just the fact that he’s recording it, even if it is never shown, will keep them from putting words in his mouth. I’m just amazed at the amount of this which goes on as though the dems are teenagers consumed with jealousy.

      What bothers me most about her tweet is the fact she is tweeting at all. I would think if she felt threatened, or concerned with all the investigating and evidence coming to light that she would be quiet. This just makes me feel she is not worried, as she feels emboldened enough to speak like this and call out the president.

      How the Clinton Foundation Got Rich off Poor Haitians: (by Dinesh D’Souza)
      I don’t blame the Haitians for falling for it; Bill is one of the world’s greatest story-tellers. He has fooled people far more sophisticated than the poor Haitians. Over time, however, the Haitians wised up. Whatever their initial expectations, many saw that much of the aid money seems never to have reached its destination; rather, it disappeared along the way. Where did it go? It did not escape the attention of the Haitians that Bill Clinton was the designated UN representative for aid to Haiti. Following the earthquake, Bill Clinton had with media fanfare established the Haiti Reconstruction Fund. Meanwhile, his wife Hillary was the United States secretary of state. She was in charge of U.S. aid allocated to Haiti. Together the Clintons were the two most powerful people who controlled the flow of funds to Haiti from around the world.

    U.S. Treasury: 90% of Americans Will See Larger Paychecks in February
    http://www.oann.com/u-s-treasury-90-of-americans-will-see-larger-paychecks-in-february/

    The Treasury Department released new withholding tables that ensure many Americans will see higher pay checks.

    According to the department, 90-percent of Americans will see larger paychecks starting next month.

    “This new guidance means that workers and their families will receive larger paychecks starting in February,” announced Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

    The money going into the pockets of Americans is a direct result of the tax cuts promised by President Trump.

    The changes implemented by the Treasury Department will work with existing W-4’s filed by employees.

    This means that American workers don’t have to do anything to receive the savings.

        Pam, I’m going to disagree with your post. You’re right, it isn’t likely. You’re right, Dershowitz said legally it is unlikely. Totally. The author of the article has made mincemeat of the argument and the person leading the charge, Dr. Lee.

        But his larger point is the judiciary branch of government is not trustworthy and he points out numerous examples of how they have told PDJT he has authority to do his job.

        I wouldn’t characterize this article as fear mongering but more of a reminder that the Left will try anything and the clash between the branches of government that the Left likes to set up are brutal.

      So, I did read the article because I read Daniel Greenfield’s earlier article that just shredded this Dr. Bandy X. Lee who seems to be leading the charge. I had decided that her 15 minutes of fame were officially over, so I was surprised to see Greenfield talking about it again.

      The article is sadly well reasoned. After acknowledging and quoting experts on the ridiculousness of the notion, he went on to say:

      “…Conventional norms are expiring quickly. We’ve seen some insane usurpations of power by Federal judges in only one year.

      Federal judges have insisted that President Trump has no right to set immigration policy, no right to set military standards, no right to suspend an ad-hoc policy of the previous admin like DACA amnesty, and really no power to do anything that the left disapproves of.

      Could a Federal judge rule in favor of some coup troika of left-wing activist shrinks, lawyers and politicians? I wouldn’t rule it out. It would be a completely illegitimate decision. But so is declaring that the President of the United States can’t pause immigration from Syria because it would inconvenience the University of Hawaii.

      Fundamental legal norms have been routinely tossed out by the left. And the Obama generation of judges is particularly notorious for a combination of radical politics and constitutional ignorance.

      The left is trying to get inside every door. It’s like a zombie outbreak. This is one door. Not the likeliest one, but the left has a hundred more.

      The real issue this raises is the inevitable collision between the elected branches of government and an activist judiciary. And this would be the breaking point for such a confrontation as it would involve a judge, effectively, removing the President of the United States.

      Judges have done things like that locally. Trump would be the ultimate test case of judicial supremacism. And while I would like to think that this crisis isn’t coming, it may well show up before we know it…”

        But a judges ruling is based on respect for the bench. Sort of like a traffic light. When it is red we stop because we follow the law. However, at some point the judges ruling is so far outside of the law that we say, screw you.

        A judge has no way to enforce. He can pound his hammer all day long but if the executive decides to ignore it what can the judge do?

        That is why what the left is pushing is so dangerous. At some point the executive needs to make arrests for sedition because that is what they are doing.

        Rosatom is the Russian Co that ends up with all of it via stock purchases, ownership changes… it is a complicated path. This indictment is on the path.

    Gunman’s girlfriend deleted Facebook account after Las Vegas shooting
    https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/gunmans-girlfriend-deleted-facebook-account-after-las-vegas-shooting/

    Authorities released the name of mass murderer Stephen Paddock about an hour after Danley deleted her account. By 5 a.m., she had been located and identified as “a person of interest” in the shooting.

    Within hours of the Las Vegas massacre that left 58 people dead, the gunman’s girlfriend had deleted her Facebook account, according to search warrants unsealed Friday.
    From a 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay suite, Stephen Paddock rained gunfire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest festival minutes after 10 p.m. on Oct. 1.
    Metropolitan Police Department investigators noticed that Marilou Danley, the gunman’s girlfriend, who was in the Philippines at the time, set her Facebook account to private at 12:30 a.m. on Oct. 2 and deleted the account by 2:46 a.m., according to an affidavit among more than 300 pages of documents handed over Friday by federal prosecutors after U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey ordered them unsealed.

    Saw this on facebook, on a page about will you vote for Trump in 2020. Fred Clary Yesterday I was enjoying a day at the Magic Kingdom of the Walt Disney World complex. I had the opportunity to attend the Hall of Presidents attraction while I was there. Now I assume that the demographics at the park is a pretty fair and equal sampling of the American people. The show is a good overview featuring our elected leaders. Now, when the new Disney animtromic figure of Donald Trump stood to make its little speech, the audience absolutely exploded with applaud and cheer. So I figure if the people get that excited over an animtromic Trump, the real president will have no problem securing the election in 2020. No body does it better than Disney, the happiest place on earth.
