    Austrian Interior Minister Says He Wants to ‘Concentrate’ Migrants in Specific Areas to Keep Austrians Safe
    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/01/12/interior-minister-concentrate-migrants-keep-austrians-safe/

    (posting here because immigration’s quite a Presidential topic, especially lately; and edifying that at least someone in Europe is interested in protecting their own citizens, as with our Pres)

          Well, yeah, we’ve all seen the denial. Thanks for posting it yet again.

          But the narratives and counter-narratives in the public forum go on regardless of the denial or what explicitly was said or not said by PresTrump. The dogs bark but the caravan rolls on. The story now has it’s own life.

          The article I posted is highlighting consequences of the narratives, some of which may be beneficial to our cause.

          We don’t have the power to bat each and every author out there over the head with the denial and shut them up.

          So I’m happy to take pleasure in – and repeat – some of the more beneficial consequences.

            Unfortunately, too many people won’t have a clue that PDJT did NOT say “s-hole” because the msm has made it a top priority – getting that out there to the low information voters who get their news on the commercial channels. I’m sure it will be on all the talk shows Monday. Did SNL do a clip of it last night? [SMH. And the people who watch this “s” are allowed to breed, walk among us, AND vote! Pretty dayum scary thought!!]

            Thank you, Dear God, for allowing us the opportunity to correct so much that is wrong “out there” and for your gift of PDJT!

          “Additionally, one of the larger reasons to feel confidence is from Trey Gowdy (aka Rooster head) being given the Chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee. His placement there will explain everything y’all need to know about his recent rather stunning increases in personal wealth. Go look it up, you’ll see. Gowdy was purchased by the Uniparty as the replacement for Jason Chaffetz, who was the replacement for Darryl Issa.

          Rooster-head’s job is now to lead the Chaff and Countermeasures routine. That’s why his personal wealth jumped so significantly. (Again, go look it up.) That’s also why his first official duty was to undermine Devin Nunes yesterday in the Washington Post.

          Gowdy is on the other side. The UniParty purchased him. Don’t forget Gowdy is the House version of Ted Cruz so he was always predisposed in that direction. Never forget that. Look at everything Gowdy does as intended to distract you from anything that matters and it will all make sense to you – Clear Eyes. Rooster proved his worthiness for the UniParty while leading the Benghazi “Special Committee” to clear Clinton.

          Thankfully the White Hats have set this up to allow Rooster-Head to crow poetically, yet not be in a position to do any substantive damage. [Though he might try to get some republicans wiped out in the 2018 election. So, watch out for that.]”

                “Inherent contempt Edit
                Under this process, the procedure for holding a person in contempt involves only the chamber concerned. Following a contempt citation, the person cited is arrested by the Sergeant-at-Arms for the House or Senate, brought to the floor of the chamber, held to answer charges by the presiding officer, and then subjected to punishment as the chamber may dictate (usually imprisonment for punishment reasons, imprisonment for coercive effect, or release from the contempt citation).”

        I used to think that Gowdy just couldn’t get the Obama-DOJ to prosecute anything that he found in his congressional ‘investigations’.

        I hoped that he would start raising hell about all the egregious wrongdoing, once Pres Trump took office.
        But…no. He didn’t.

        Gowdy has had almost a Year now to call for prosecutions…and he has been silent.

        For example, what about all those Benghazi Witnesses that have been under ‘gag order’ to keep them from telling what they know?
        How come Gowdy hasn’t been calling for those gag orders to be lifted?

    This is an article about President Trumps meeting on DACA Thursday. It is well worth reading.
    It is straight news. How refreshing!

    I found the article by using DuckDuckgo.com for the first time. I had been using Google trying to find out who the gang of 6 Senators were, but all I was getting was left wing garbage in response to my queries. When I found this article I found so much more than the Senators names. I had no idea the gang of 6 proposed amnesty for 9 million illegal aliens.

    DuckDuckGo.com gives back random sites including left, right, center, and apolitical. It also gives Christian sites in response to queries. It has been so long since I had seen a Christian site popup within the first few responses I was taken aback.

    Anyway, if you are having trouble getting anything except lefty garbage in your Google searches try DuckDuckGo.com (https://duckduckgo.com/).

    This is the DACA news article I found by search DuckDuckGo. It is titled “Pres. Trump Rejects ‘Gang of 6’ Deal that Would Give Amnesty to 9 Million Illegal Aliens”

          From what I understand about Startpage, it’s essentially a Google search but it submits it without your identifying information. Purportedly. So Google won’t place a cookie and know your entire search history.

          So it maintains privacy but results should be close to a google search results because it submits to their query engine.

          There is a “family” type filter by default, you have to get into the advanced search panel if you want to disable it. But you probably meant filtering conservative stuff.

    I have been thinking about this all day and want to toss this out. Did the democrats just try to start a nuclear war?

    It is well known on the right that the left accuses their ememies of what they are doing themselves. This mainly comes from many historians study of Stalin. Stalin was so consistent that historians are comfortable assigning him responsibility for events where the
    only evidence is that he accused someone else of committing the act. What leftists also do is to project motives and behaviors onto their opponent not based upon evidence, but of their own opnion.

    These days, the American left is all about “Temperment”.

    The Democrat’s accusation against Donald Trump is that he doesn’t have the temperment to be President. It isn’t just a smear, they believe it. They PROJECT it.

    Early after the inaguration, one of President Trump ‘s first actions was to limit refugees from a few countries because they could not be vetted. A circuit judge from Hawaii ruled it unconstitutional, despite the fact that the rule was based upon long established statutes. What did the president do? He patiently followed the law, appealing it all the way to the Supreme Court, and won.

    Next, another Circuit Judge, again from Hawaii, overulled the Supreme Court and ruled it unconstitutional again, this time with an even more illogical excuse that it would have been constitutional for another President, but not for President Trump.

    What did President Trump do? Did he just ignore the ruling? No, he again patiently went to the courts in established legal procedure.

    So what were the Hawaiian judges doing with these stupid rulings? Since democrats believe that President Trump does not have the temperment to be president, I think they tried devising traps that an impulsive man would fall into. If President Trump was an impusive man, he would just override the judge’s obvious overreaches and implement his policy. Then democrats would attack him for violating the seperatioin of powers, and the impeachment would begin.

    Today we have another odd story about “temperment” coming from Hawaii. This time, we have an alert go out that there was a missile attack happening. What would a President with bad temperment do if he got an alert of an imminent missile attack? Would he take the time to confirm what is happening, or just send missiles in retaliation and ask questions later? More importantly, what would democrats believe President Trump would do?

    The only evidence I have that this was a “false flag” are the words “Hawaii” and “test of Trump’s temperment.” Is that enough? Is the contents of the IG report, due in a couple of days, so dangerous to democrats that they would be willing to risk an accidental nuclear war in order to get it off the news? ( and President Trump impeached)

        No, WE don’t. But that isn’t the basis for this theory. The question is, what do DEMOCRATS think this president would do? Do THEY think he would fall into a trap, or carefully follow procedures? This is why I brought up that they project their opinions onto him. If they learned from the judges, they would have learned by now that a stunt like this would not work. But if they are still projecting their own opinions onto him, then yes, I think democrats might think this could work. I don’t know the truth, but the odds of this being deliberate comes from what kind of man they think Trump is.

      Here are a couple of more thoughts for the skeptical:

      After the alert was cancelled, the Hawaiian government claimed that it was easy to create one of these alerts, “just pushed the wrong button.” First, I doubt that, I think there are procedures and a chain of responsible people required to send something like this out to the whole state. Who were the people involved?

      Second, if it actually is easy to do, then why did it happen in Hawaii? Why not Vermont, or New Mexico? The odds of an accidental message send would probably be distributed evenly across all states. But it was Hawaii, and Hawaii is one of the few states most directly threatened by North Korea, and therefore is one of the states that you might believe if they sent out an alert. Hawaii is also almost completely run by democrats, so everyone in the chain of authority to send the alert would be a democrat.

      Third, although they claimed that they realized the mistake early and were trying to cancel the alert, they did not actually cancel it until several minutes after any missile from North Korea would have hit them. Its kind of odd that the window of uncertainty was held open that long, as if they were giving the federal government as much time as possible to launch a response before they had to correct themselves.

        Maybe Judge Jeanine suffers from battered conservative syndrome, there seems to be a lot of it going around, including the media presumption that Trump lied about not having used the language that Durbin says Trump used in a private meeting.

        The entire narrative about Trump using the term “shithole” could be FAKE NEWS being used to sabotage negotiations and make the excuse that any impasse is due to Trump being a “racist”. Durbin could very well be telling a calculated lie and “leaking” false information as part of a con and misdirection about who is acting in bad faith in the DACA negotiations. Games were being played in the televised meeting so is it any reach that games would also be played by Democrats (or RINOS) in a meeting that was private?

        Truth and good faith seems to be scarce commodity in Washington DC and the media can become liars reporting on liars without even realizing they are being played.

        The baggage Arpaio has whether it is deserved or not, causes him not to be a viable candidate and the issues that are that baggage are not something to be relitigated during a campaign for election. In that regard Arpaio encounters the EXACT same situation as dif Roy Moore and that is NOT a winning formula. It doesn’t take a genius to recognize this FACT. The nature of the politics is that if Arpaio is seeking validation whether that should happen or not…it won’t….and instead what will happen whether it is right or not, is that in losing then whatever rebuke has already occurred, right or wrong, will be repeated. I’m not saying that is what should happen in a perfect world, just saying that is what will happen in this one.

      This woman has an interesting background…

      McSally served in the United States Air Force from 1988-2010, rising to the rank of Colonel. After leaving the Air Force, McSally ran for a seat in the United States House of Representatives, representing Arizona’s 2nd congressional district as a Republican. McSally was one of the highest ranking female pilots in the history of the Air Force. She was the first American woman to fly in combat.

      She sued the DOD in 2001 challenging the military policy that required U.S. and U.K. servicewomen stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the body-covering abaya when traveling off base in the country. McSally had been fighting for a change in the policy for seven years, and had filed the lawsuit after she had been threatened with a court martial if she did not comply and wear the abaya.

      United States Central Command (USCENTCOM), announced in 2002 that U.S. military servicewomen would no longer be required to wear the abaya, although they would be “encouraged” to do so as a show of respect for local customs. Commenting on the change, Central Command spokesman Colonel Rick Thomas said it was not made because of McSally’s lawsuit, but had already been “under review” before the lawsuit was filed.

      ( riiiiiiiiight )

      Eventually the U.S. Congress “approved legislation that prohibited anyone in the military from requiring or encouraging servicewomen to put on abayas in Saudi Arabia or to use taxpayers’ money to buy them.

      McSally has voted with her party in 96% of votes so far in the current session of Congress and voted in line with President Trump’s position in 100% of the votes.

      She has been criticized for dodging questions, not taking firm positions, and for avoiding media.

      “You want to talk about a war on women? Walk in my shoes down the streets of Kabul. Walk in my shoes down the streets of Riyadh; where women have to be covered up. Where they’re stoned, where they’re honor killed if they’ve been raped, where they can’t drive and they can’t travel without the permission of a male relative. That’s a war on women.”

      Paco, I agree. I went to Oahu about 6 years ago and was completely shocked at the number of homeless families living under tarps on the beaches! It did not look like paradise to me – I couldn’t wait to leave. They also have an absolutely horrendous drug problem there as well.

      Even with Democrats in almost total control of the state, fruitcake liberals like Jamie Lee Curtis think President Donald Trump is responsible for their massive screw-up!

        MSNBC interviewed senator – it’s true , she blamed trump and his “pattern” of being a racist.

        They have no argument over trump, only keep calling him fascist for saying and doing what got him to 304, over and over again. Idiots.

        I am reminded of this truth teller on November 9th, 2016 talking to his progressive base – salty language/raw emotion the day after trump stole his cheese…he outlines exactly why MAGA will continue to win – progressives do not argue ideas , only insults. All talk, no action. It explains everything we hear and see since June 2015, it’s all they got and they can’t learn – trumps base knows he is not a racist. Next try?!?

          Step back from all the noise and he outlines exactly why we must stay focused and not be distracted from all the noise the left distracts us with -“racist is NOt an argument! The left has lost its ability to win because it doesn’t articulate an opinion anymore – you can’t win the argument when you run around being offended all the time!” Love this clip – just awesome, raw emotion. He’s right, 100%! Meanwhile, Hillary thinks she would have won if not for Comey / Russia. Lol.

    Interesting- – – Oct 25, 2016 the About Queries are permanently stopped. The next day, James Comey agrees with his agents to get a warrant for HRC’s emails from Weiner’s laptop, AND “felt obligated to inform Congress”.

    “On October 26th, 2016, full FISC assembly, NSA Director Rogers personally informed the court of the 702(17) violations. Additionally, Rogers also stopped “About Query” permanently.”
    Then…
    “When agents formally recommended on Oct. 27 that the warrant be sought, Comey agreed and then felt obligated to inform Congress — which he did with his letter the following day. Comey’s only reference in the letter to the timing of his involvement was that he had been briefed the previous day. FBI spokesmen declined to comment on the timeline of Comey’s knowledge or on internal tensions.
    The FBI obtained a warrant Sunday to analyze the messages for the Clinton investigation. It remains unclear if any of the newly discovered emails contain classified or other relevant information.”

    Excerpt:

    As I’ve said a gazillion times (or so it feels), the endless virtue signaling and hair on fire lunacy of our political press corps has destroyed their credibility.

    They’re so hellbent on proving what they believe to be true rather than reporting facts, that we spend most of our time correcting the record. And still, they haven’t learned.

    Because it must be said again, this, dear media, is why everyone hates you.

  44. As a British born person, I would like to bring to your attention the diplomatic soup the UK is in right now.

    A Royal wedding is taking place this year. Ahhhh. How nice. A British prince is marrying an American citizen. The last one in 1936 didn’t go well, but I digress.

    Donald Trump has cancelled his visit to open the Embassy this year. He doesn’t feel safe there, and he is spot on to think that. Not a good look for the British government. add to that, the fact that this new embassy is no longer in the heart of London, but has been relegated to a piece of land on the outskirts.

    They clearly don’t want Trump there, and especially at the wedding. The people hate him, and the media have formented this hatred to uncontrollable levels. I would imagine Trump doesn’t want to go either. It would be bad PR. Because the UK have gone so overboard in their hatred of Trump, his attendance would overshadow the attention being focused on the happy couple. It would not be smart.

    However, they do want to invite Barak Obama. This makes it awkward diplomatically. Up until a few weeks ago, this discomfort would be mainly felt by the US government. Until this week that is.

    It is now becoming clear, that Obama had asked, successfully, for the GCHQ to do all their dirty work and spy on Trump, to prevent him from winning the presidency. Unfortunately, the American citizens strongly disagreed, and voted him into government.

    Just sit back, and think about those optics for a moment. They couldn’t be worse. Obama at the wedding. The man who illegally spied on Trump, and got the British establishment to do it, being invited to the Royal wedding, and Donald Trump not being invited.

    Added to that, the EU have made it clear that they no longer want the UK in the EU. They have been too much of a head ache for them. They function better with the UK not a part of their club. In other words, that horse has bolted. The UK has to stand on it’s own. Clearly, the default position, is to resume their “special relationship” with the USA.

    But it doesn’t look so special now, does it?

      “The key to seeing Obama’s motives lie in what you don’t see or hear. Believe everything he says is a lie and you’ll be much closer to the truth about him.”

      I think that the relationship between our countries will be fine, but now is a time for getting dirty more than concern over optics.

      The British royals are great for tourism, but aside from the pomp are irrelevant in today’s world. I really don’t think it would take very many more missteps and scandals for the British public to dissolve the House of Windsor. Good riddance.

    Our President is a genius.
    A very stable genius.

    How does one ‘say something’ without actually saying it?
    Answer:
    You quote someone else saying it.

    What if our President said something like this:

    ‘I’ve heard people say, “Why do we have to have people from shithole countries coming here.” But I tell them that’s why they come here, to get away from that.’

    See what I mean?
    That would been saying it…without saying it.

    Remember, our President is a genius, especially when it comes to judging character.
    He knows that guys like Durbin are crapweasels who would run to their media buddies with anything ‘salacious’…to use to win points with the media.

    Pres Trump may have even said the phrase “shithole countries” several times, for effect.
    But he said it as a ‘quote’…quoting what someone else said to him.

    I believe our President when he says that’s not what he said.
    But I also know he’s a genius…and he’s also a genius about trolling the press and the crapweasels who hate him, on both sides.

    If what I have suggested is the way it happened, then it explains why the R-Senators who were in the room, didn’t quite know how to answer the question of:
    “Did the President say that?”
    They didn’t come right out and say ‘he didn’t say that’…it was more like ‘that’s not what we heard’.

    The fact that PDJT let it stew overnight, is what has made me think it happened this way.
    He could have come out immediately and denied it.
    But he didn’t.

    Why would PDJT do this? What does it accomplish?
    It has made all the Dems have to declare that…”Those countries are not shitholes!”
    Haaaa.
    So now, when we send all these illegals back to their countries, the Dems can’t say that it would be ‘terrible’…because they’ve been declaring what great countries those are!

    Genius.

    Remember the power of Covfefe.

      Wheatietoo, his statement was carefully crafted to reject the full quote/wording as reported. I think he likely used the phrase on African countries….but it had nothing to do with race.

      What’s missing is the context.

      It was a private conversation and he was blunt. It’s a lot easier to say “sh*thole countries than to go into a politically correct statement about importing in mass (visa lottery) from troubled countries and listing the concerns (ms-13, drug dealers, radical extremists, etc).

      Trump has ended many of the temporary humanitarian visas and has been deporting those who were here from Haiti, El Salvador, Somalia, etc. According to one of the media reports Trump got upset because the amnesty Senators wanted to not only keep them here but put them on a pathway to citizenship.

      Trump agreed to DACA plus security….not legalizing a bunch of other groups (which he was deporting).

      He wants to bring immigrants here based on merit system where they aren’t a security risk, and won’t be on welfare.

  46. Sundance, in his post today (Pandora’s MOAB – President Donald John Trump…) is looking a few chess moves down the line. I am so grateful he has begun this process. He is telling us that this is not about FISA 702 searches, although for now, this is what we are going after. It is about how the whole government is corrupt from the top down, in almost every sphere of life, and has been for 30 years. It is run for a few overlords, and the rest of us are slaves to their system. Yes, “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.”

    But they have become lazy, incompetent, sloppy and negligent in their illegal scheming, and they find themselves with an outsider as POTUS, and they remain clueless as to how that even happened.

    The USA has been for sale to the highest bidder since 1989. This is the New World Order that GHW Bush promised us – the one that we never asked for. This is not one crime we are discussing, but the gateway to a generation of crimes, with the government apparatus weaponized against it’s own people for the financial benefit of a few.

    When the truth is revealed, the people will be stunned. There is only one way we will ever recover when it all comes out. We should expose it all, and try the leaders, and their enablers for treason. All of them. This should be a military court. How can they be tried in courts that they own and control?

    “No way, they would never arrest them. Or try them for treason and hang them. That is impossible. Nothing like this has ever been seen before. Ever!”. If these are your thoughts, then they are the same thought patterns that preceded every major revolution.

    Your thoughts betray you. History tells us a different story……………..

    • …………… The most powerful nation in the western world in 1787 was France. The USA was a baby, just out of a revolution it had only just won by the skin of it’s teeth, and for which there was no overwhelming support. In 1789, The USA, as a concept, was a very insecure one, with no guarantees of survival and success. 1815 is the date the USA became a fully functioning nation, accepted by all as an inalienable truth. And in both conflicts with the British, it was achieved with the invaluable help of the French. The French. That behemoth super power, with the ability to control events on all of the world’s continents.

      BUT

      If you told the French in 1787 what they would do to their leaders in 1789, they would have laughed at you. And, when The French Revolution did happen, it was not a unanimous decision. It was pretty much 50/50 within the populace, and had no support from abroad, and yet their revolution killed all their Royal Family, and all those that enabled them. Heads did indeed roll.

      But the French peasants were so poor, I hear you say, and the rich were so rich, that they made revolution inevitable, and this is not our scenario.

      Well, where did the French get that idea from? Why, the British of course. In1649, even a few months before the event, if you had told the English that they would execute their King, a deity appointed by God under The Divine Right of Kings, they would have locked you up for madness. After all, the economy in England in the mid 17th century was strong.

      History would never repeat itself, would it? Au contraire. No one ever learns from history. It’s just a road map that informs us of what will happen in the future. Ask Dr Phil.

      This battered, raped and abused nation will not move on, ever, unless our very thirsty tree of liberty is replenished with the manure of treasonous blood. It’s not fancy words. Jefferson was referring to historical fact. He wrote that in the past, for what will happen in the future. Well, the future is now. Our leaders have been playing with fire.

      That Zippo lighter of Sundance’s may ignite an explosion that nobody can control. Every revolution needs a symbol. An American made Zippo lighter, designed for the troops, by men of ingenuity, in a world of free market capitalism, is the perfect symbolism.

      When our people suffer…businesses suffer too.

      We want to attract Big Corporations to relocate here.

      We have corruption by political operatives embedded in top levels of our Justice Dept and Agencies.

      Having a fair and uncorrupted Judicial System is vital in attracting Investment in our country.

      When our President says…”Make America Safe Again”…he says this because he knows that it is an integral part of getting our whole country back into prosperity.

    Just some food for thought on Martha McSally.

    She is a Representative in a tight swing district. You have to appeal to independents to win. So some of her mild distancing remarks from Trump may have been to keep her appeal to her voters.

    She does think Trump’s tweets can be a distraction (sometimes they are), but also said she doesn’t want to be asked to play a pundit and comment on them.

    She has, however, voted with Trump 97% of the time, and if you look at her stances on the issues she seems really good (repeal Obamacare, terminate Planned Parenthood funding, balance budget, supports military, supports school vouchers, supports keystone Pipeline and energy independence, supports border security and deporting illegals, supports gun rights, pro-life, and was opposed to gay marriage. The only area where she may be weak is regulating C02.
