    Time to stand strong for America & Americans
    Dear America, I promise you, I’ll teach my children of your freedom and your grace
    And of the Founding Fathers’ wisdom in the writings that they made
    “Dear America, I won’t let them forget the sacrifice that your men and women made
    And that our flag still flies from the dying breath they gave.
    I give my word that I will not forget that dark September day,
    When we learned that others hate us, and it took our breath away.
    Dear America, no I won’t forget the families who hold a photograph,
    and the thousand vivid memories, and a neatly folded flag.”

    I had Fox & Friends on early this morning. Rachel Campos Duffy, wife of Rep. Sean Duffy, was the girl on the couch this morning. She and her hubby are Trump people.

    She said that Congressmen always talk to their staff about the tenor or the phone calls they get. Last time the gov’t was shut down they got lots of angry calls. So far, this time, they haven’t. The calls they are receiving are “Release the Memo” calls.

    So, they really do pay attention! I was happy to do my part and call my stupid lazy corrupt Rep yesterday and tell her to go read the memo and then do something to Release The Memo!

    Also, I saw on Fox & Friends that the special forces went to visit the prototypes of The Wall to test them for weaknesses and “breachability.” I thought that was encouraging, and smart.

      Now we have McGarrity appointed as Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division at FBI Headquarters

      There are supposedly two divisions of the intelligence operation run by the FBI, one is the Domestic Intelligence division – aka Counterterrorism and the other is Foreign Intelligence – aka Counterintelligence….so anybody want to guess whether this is Priestap’s replacement or does McGarrity replace Russ Travers?

        Not to cloud or cast aspersions on anyone mentioned, but isn’t it interesting.

        It’s simply fascinating to me that the agents have been working diligently to fulfill their obligations, yet have had direct interference from the DoJ who steps in and allegedly issues “stand down” orders. And then, the Special Agent listed as the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York group leaves to become a Chief Global Security Officer in a communication company. Finally, we have a new special agent in charge who has Afghanistan and Loretta Lynch possible ties to all of this malarkey seven days after Comey’s letter to Congress when the Clinton/Democrat machine has had time to gear up, strategize, and put certain actions in play.

        Move along folks, nothing out of the ordinary here. Simply a golden opportunity for one to move into the corporate world and another to clean up. Let the washing machine handle this and don’t forget the “bleach”.”

    Anyone wondering about the FBI has to understand the way the FBI hires. They hire people with law degrees, accounting, foreign languages, mathematics, etc. In the past, they have hired some agents under the “diversified” heading, meaning experienced law enforcement officers. But they largely have their own culture and their own rules. It’s not really accurate to compare them to any regular law enforcement agency, they’re not really steeped in a culture of integrity, duty and honor. The people running the show are lawyers. Do the math.

    Okay, here it is, as succinctlyput as anyone could. From ZeroHedge:

    NSA “Sincerely Regrets” Deleting All Bush-Era Surveillance Data It Was Ordered To Preserve

    There is a growing consensus among many observers in Washington that the national security agencies have become completely politicized over the past seventeen years and are now pursuing selfish agendas that actually endanger what remains of American democracy.

    As Philip Giraldi notes, up until recently it has been habitual to refer to such activity as the Deep State, which is perhaps equivalent to the Establishment in that it includes financial services, the media, major foundations and constituencies, as well as lobbying groups, but we are now witnessing an evolutionary process in which the national security regime is exercising power independently.

    Nowhere is that “independence” of the ‘state within a state’ more evident than in the blatant and egregious news this week that The National Security Agency destroyed surveillance data it pledged to preserve in connection with pending lawsuits and apparently never took some of the steps it told a federal court it had taken to make sure the information wasn’t destroyed, according to recent court filings.

    As Politico reports, the agency tells a federal judge that it is investigating and “sincerely regrets its failure.”

    Snip… Antiwar activist Justin Raimondo believes that something like a civil war is coming, with the war party Establishment fighting to defend its privileged global order while many other Americans seek a return to normal nationhood with all that implies.

    If true, the next few years will see a major internal conflict that will determine what kind of country the United States will be.”

To make matters worse, backup tapes that might have mitigated the failure were erased in 2009, 2011 and 2016, the NSA said.

    Just like Sundance predicted:

    “Because the underlying material supporting the memo’s conclusions is highly classified, Democrats noted, the document cannot be taken as proof of the allegations it contains.

    “I think the whole political purpose of this is to make a misleading case to the public, perpetuate the president’s political narrative, but not let the public see the underlying materials that would show just how distorted it is — I think that’s by design,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee.

    “The problem is, we can’t point out the inaccuracies without relying on the underlying material,” he said.”

                  I do not know if some are truly this concerned…or ‘concerned’…if you know what I mean. However, there is a certain group of commenters that always seem to come out as if on command.

                  I read a write up on trolls about a year and a half ago that exposed some of the advanced trolling tactics…as we know $trillions$ are at stake.

                  One of the tactics is to infiltrate a group pretending to be part of the group…getting along and gaining trust. It can literally go for months on end…then slowly sow the seeds of doubt, concern, and division.

                  If that sounds far fetched…I know that I had thought about the process myself long before I saw somebody else actually report on it. I know I could do it…it is not rocket science. I bet I would actually be pretty good at it. 😛

          I just dont know what the game is here.
          They held a vote to show the “memo” to congress. Why not just hold a vote to declassify the memo at the same time? They are now talking about holding a vote to declassify the memo, that would take us to the first week in April given the congressional calendar.
          They have said nothing about declassifying the underlying intelligence. So I guess this master plan involves releasing the memo in April, waiting for the Dems to claim its simply a partisan opinion piece, then going through the whole declassification process again with the intelligence? Where does that bring us June/July?
          Whats the point? If you have the goods, slap the cuffs on. These people are still employed for crying out loud. There is zero chance of winning a public relations battle, given the state of the media, so I see no STRATEGIC value to this approach.
          If there is something that can happen in July that cannot happen now, id love to hear it, and could be persuaded to change my mind.

            Declassifying can’t be decided by Congress critters. That’s up to the President with advice from his intelligence people. You might remember there is also an IG report which will be released early March. Lots of breadcrumbs are being dropped. The media will what they do, if they don’t have a story, they’ll make up one. They’re the biggest enemy, but feeding their machine doesn’t do our side any good.

      Sundance talks about four options for “Releasing the Memo” and explains why only two are legal and why one of those two would be harmful to PDJT leaving one option–the one that is currently unfolding.

      I know many of us, including myself, want to rip the darned band aid off RIGHT NOW and take the consequences but I can see the wisdom in doing this “the proper way” as PDJT says so often.

        Is it official, have they voted to release? or have they only promised to vote?

Then we could at least understand what steps have to be taken and in what order, and quibble over do they mean days, calendar days, business days, days the Congress is in session, or some other kind of day that requires you to have a special decoder ring to figure out?????

            They should have to work in a hospital, and deal with cardiac arrest.

            I am in agreement this should NOT be leaked, something this important should not be diminished by leaking.

            I also agree that President Trump should not have to be the one to declassify and announce, however, if the congresscritters drag their feet it’s a different story.

    I have a great idea!

    Henceforth, should HOUSE and SENATE together fail to have a complete budget passed into law by the October date which is proper and legal:

    The House and Senate AND their entire staffs and bureaucrats must go without pay for that entire year, in order to help fund the branches they might wish to deprive with a shutdown: especially military members.

    Absolutely NO PORK, no special interest funding, no travel, fancy meals, parties, or extras in that year can come from even one dime of taxpayer money.

    Senators and Representatives will be forced to cut staff, pay from their own grafty pockets for all help, BECAUSE THEY FAILED to do their jobs. It is not as if they did not know the date.

    Their failure to pass a real budget in the proper time alloted to do so should hurt THEM in their own pockets, not citizens and military and border patrol.

    Mick Mulvaney will no doubt have prepared a budget for them from the Executive Branch by February this year to be worked upon and passed before October for the NEXT year, 2019!

    But they are still not ready to pass a budget from the one he gave them Feb 2017 for 2018.

    Last night the Dems were unquestionably outed as obstructionists who would have received in the proposed CR virtually all of what they sought sans an amnesty for illegals, but they chose to shut down the government using the only card left for them to play in their mindless mission to force amnesty for illegals. Already, there is a significant and growing national consensus, even in many liberal news outlets, that their intransigence on immigration reform has become the cornerstone of their resistance to the President’s agenda and it is hurting all American citizens

    The silver lining to last night’s CR debacle is the complete unveiling and public exposure of the political war that has been contested for years. It took President Trump’s determination, genius, and fortitude to induce the GOPe to take the stand it has so long been unwilling to adopt. No doubt, it was painful for numerous GOP senators, but they were forced to vote as they did purely for their own electoral preservation.

    Even among casual observers, there should now be no doubt whatsoever that our two-party system of government is irreparably broken, and any concept of cooperative, bi-partisan government is a fantasy. There is no point to the Repubs continuing to posture themselves as facilitators of compromise with an opposition party fully dedicated to impairing and impeding the President’s agenda, by any means possible.

    The short-term solution for the Repubs is a bare-knuckles approach to governing. I expect the resolution of the shutdown will come quickly, and the catalyst will be McConnell’s changing the voting rule to a simple majority. It is clear that unless that happens, the Dems will be empowered to seriously damage the country indefinitely, be it by government shutdown or deferral of critical legislation,

    The wailing from the left and MSM will be intense and prolonged, but the outcome, the well-being of the country, easily justifies the change in voting rules. BTW, it was the Dems who initiated the “nuclear voting option” in 2013 to accelerate confirmation of Obama’s nominees. “What goes around…”

    The Dems have completely eliminated the need for any pretense of bi-partisanship until they change their negative and confrontational behavior. I don’t expect this to happen in the foreseeable future without a change in their toxic leadership.

    Most of us are not surprised that open political warfare has finally become obvious. Moreover, when the Clinton/Obama/FBI/DOJ scandals are fully revealed to be unprecedented in their seriousness, multiple, additional battles will be joined, all of which, though actually brutal and figuratively bloody, will eventually serve to strengthen the Republic.

    This is not going to be a short war, but I believe President Trump will lead the good people of America to victory.

      I completely agree, Dan. It is becoming evident what President Trump realizes must happen. We have come to a point where one party has been infiltrated by the traitors of the other.

      These next next nine months will be more intriguing than we have anticipated.

  20. If Mueller and Fusion GPS are still trying to find the Russian collusion, there’s more to this story then we are being told. WHAT could be so hard to find that it takes that kind of investing?

    My theory is that HRC/ Dems and Google/Eric Schmitd had a fail safe rigged voting system to get HRC elected. It was iron clad, UN hackable. When FL went to Trump and the 3 hours when no vote totals came in, Eric Schmitd was panicking because States were going to Trump that were never supposed to. Their hack proof rigging had failed.

    I think the Mueller team and Fusion GPS are blaming the vote rigging malfunction on Russia and Mueller believea it must somehow be because of Trump.

      Apparently, they were instrumental in opening portals for the vote, but impeded by a few white hats who denied the steal on Election Night.

      All the more reason why no one could complain. If you remember, Jill Stein attempted to open up ballot reviews in a few states, but the ballot totals were so far off from the voter rolls, the recounts were officially abandoned.

  24. What are your issues with illegals ?
    Here are mine…
    My dad, Grandfather , Great Grandfather and Great Great Grandfather etc. fought, bled and one died fighting for their off spring , for the family! NOT for some people who have NO ties to this country, and in fact don’t give a rat’s ASS about it. They fought for me, and you! They gave EVERYTHING for our freedom. NOT for some poor hapless people who can’t fix the country they come from. I don’t blame them for trying to come, I’m sure I would too if I were in that situation, I blame our liberal Govt. people who don’t value what we have, who don’t care what it cost. Going back to my distant relative Luke Kelly, who came from Ireland and fought with us against the British my fore fathers fought and bled for us, NOT them…….

      Good post Coveyyouthband. My forefathers in that generation all fought in the Revolution.
      Some of my greats whether fathers or uncles have fought in every battle since.

      But here is the thing. LAW AND ORDER. Without following law, there will be no order.
      Without order civilization breaksdown.

      Coming here illegally, or sending children here illegally is against the law. Period.
      But the law has not been followed nor enforced. So our nation is in disorder already.

      And there is no way IMO that any “new” law can change the fact that the law was broken.

      Making a law that allows retroactive acceptance of breaking a former law is wrong. It undermines order.

      Any new law should say “From henceforth the law is such and such, for any further instances of this matter, but those who already broke previous law must still pay the afore described legal penalty for it.”

      Enforce the law in effect at the time the crime was committed. Period.

      And stop using previous case law to judge by: a previous case might have been judged Wrongly, and going by previous errors merely compounds the errors. Judge by the LAW, not by what some other judge said.

      Again without Law there is no Order. Without order=chaos.

        Like you, my great grandparents immigrated legally and came through Ellis Island, bringing my then 5 y.o. grandfather. My father is therefore first generation American; Mother’s people go back to the Mayflower.

        There are nearly 8 billion people on the planet, and I sometimes wonder if leftists truly believe that, no matter how many come to America or how they arrive, we should be forced to support them.

        I too believe if we are a country of laws then that is what we should be (enough of the leftists manipulating the population by tired emotional references to the chilluns, etc.).

        Earlier today someone posted a very good article here on the thoughts of our Founding Fathers on this topic, all of which indicated a concern about newcomers understanding our system of government and appreciating our liberty and independence versus bringing their customs learned from their mother country, here is a quote which captures what I believe is currently happening:

        “In conclusion, the following commentary was offered by Justice Joseph Story, who wrote the most widely read and respected commentary on the Constitution of the 19th century. With respect to Congress’ power to create a uniform law of naturalization, he observed:

        It is of the deepest interest to the whole Union to know, who are entitled to enjoy the rights of citizens in each state, since they thereby, in effect, become entitled to the rights of citizens in all the states. If aliens might be admitted indiscriminately to enjoy all the rights of citizens at the will of a single state, the Union might itself be endangered by an influx of foreigners, hostile to its institutions, ignorant of its powers, and incapable of a due estimate of its privileges.[11]”

      In honor of PDJT’s first year anniversary, I sent him an email congratulating him and thanking him.

      I also asked him to hang tough on the Wall, and that I had come to believe he was right during the campaign when he said anyone here illegally has to go. Has to. If they are good folks, they can come back in “the proper way.”

      Like everything else BO touched, DACA is a scam. The requirements the “kids” are supposed to meet are ludicrous and not there to ensure they become productive members of society and worse still were only ever rubber stamped without vetting or just ignored.

      Nope. Out. And if the good ones want to return, apply legally.

    • You have asked an important question.
      The answer is they are here illegally.
      That is an insult and it takes away from every individual that waited their turn, that worked hard to put funds together, that sacrificed everything to come to this great country.

      That is the problem and the anger I feel every time the left makes the words interchangeable. Legally here and illegally here are not equal.
      Legally here means you worked hard to get here. Played by the rules and paid your dues.

      Illegally here means you worked the system, stole services, use things to your own personal advantage and never once cared about anyone but yourself.
      In every instance you are a drain on the taxpaying citizen.
      By coming here illegally you have stolen from everyone who came legally the pride, courage and honor of all those who now call themselves Americans.

Yep. I know how she feels.

        The way the Moslems look at the handouts they get as refauxgees is that it is payment of the (J)Yizrah, the “non-Moslem” tax, i.e. we “owe” it to them to pay their food, clothes, housing transportation, entertainment, etc., and supply them with compliant, young, German girls to do their bidding (and bedding).

        Then Merkel &co. (who have NO clue) can’t figure out why things are going so badly, and why the electorate is royally pi$$ed.

        If the refauxgees can’t keep their own countries in order, and stay out of fighting everyone from a different nation or tribe, how in the world will they keep the peace here?
        [Short answer, they can’t; cf Kurds, Turks, and other detritus in north Germany]…

        And look REALLY closely at the USA’s southern border: a lot of those “Mexicans” are NOT Mexican, but ISIS plants. And they’re nothing you can smoke, but they do make things go BOOM…
