    Sundance, what is the deal with this DACA situation. Sorry, but I was a prosecutor for years and gained an appreciation for the Rule of Law, as well as the importance of one’s word…not so pleased with where he is going on the amnesty thing. Watch Texas turn blue within a decade, it is closing in on blue even now…illegal immigration, legal immigration, relocation within the states to Texas…just sayin’….

      He’s just playing the Democrats. It’s all part of The Art of the Deal. He threw them a bone, knowing or thinking that they wouldn’t take it. In fact, “crying” Schumer not only rejected it but also wanted more concessions. Now, Trump can blame the Democrats, again, for not making a deal.

      I understand where you are coming from to a certain point. I live in NC and we have a lot of illegals in this state also. We had voter ID at one point and it was later taken away by a federal judge but president Trump carried the state anyway and so did Romney in 2012.

      As effective as voter ID is, it doesn’t solve the entire issue with the fraud. We’ve seen what has happened recently with federal judges trying make states go back and redraw their congressional districts which what I think you were going with this. We were fortunate last week when our case went all the way to the US Supreme Court and fortunately, the lower court decision was overturned.

      The thing is, it’s not just about the illegals even though that’s a big part of it. The other part is the voting machines. George Soros controls a big majority of them. I guess my point is that we have to address the other big elephant in the room which also doing away with the machines. Even if we assume that DACA talks fall apart and people are deported, then we still have to deal with these voting machines. Getting rid of those machines would be a huge step in combating the fraud problem. States need to go back to using paper ballots. Those states that president Trump were not supposed to win were the states that used paper ballots which were the same states Jill Stein called for a recount in.

      To be honest, I’ll be shocked if we manage to get a deal on DACA. I believe the president knows what he’s doing and that he fully intends to put Americans first. He has said from the very beginning that he won’t take DACA in exchange for the wall. Schumer doesn’t want to budge on DACA and doesn’t want the wall built and thankfully, the president isn’t budging on the wall. It will be interesting to see what happens between now and February 8th.

        I’m in NC District 3 and we still use paper ballots, BUT they are counted by machines too. No receipt and no way to determine if all marks were counted correctly, but maybe that’s taking it too far and to the point of paranoia?

        Thanks, Pam, you do such a great job of posting the tweets of greater interest which is the only way I would ever see them.

        And now, we’ve slid off topic for this thread and I’ma gonna shut up.

      I agree that Trump was playing the Crats, he knew they are obstructionists, and he draws it out when they refuse such a deal and he can always say he offered but Shroomer turned him down.

      While I was watching Trump discuss DACA and the wall, he spoke of the great Senators that have positions and want to settle this issue, he spoke of the ‘dreamers’ who are wonderful people and my stomach turns over. That is DC political BS. What about the ‘wonderful’ Americans that voted for Trump that do not want amnesty! He never mentioned us. i have been a Trump supporter since he walk down the escalator and I am pissed!

    Yup, this video puts to sorched earth the MSM narrative that PDJT is raving stark unhinged mentally unstable simpleton.

    MSM will now say it is all choreograph.

    Well, you dimrods in MSM land, that is what happens when you speak with conviction, passion and truth in what you believe…

    I wish Trump would’ve minimized the repetitive political talking points and had a more substantive business discussion with Kernan. I think Joe wished the same.

    But I understand why Trump is compelled to spread the word of his admins. accomplishments. Every day of the year is a campaign day now and any opportunity to counter the flood of negative press is irresistible.

    However, Wilbur, Cohn (?) and Mnuchin are the more articulate and knowledgeable business wing of the WH and have no problem engaging in detailed and substantive discussions about economics. It seems, Trump doesn’t like getting bogged down in the details and astutely delegates those jobs to others. Wilbur is the most amazing to listen to.

        They most certainly are, and their refusal to let the media in scares the hell out of me. It’s also unfortunate and very telling our msm along with others throughout the world won’t go near this story.

        I wonder if there were any Americans in that meeting, and if so, who the heck were they?

        Think about it though, they’d have to get every country on board and imagine the logistics of setting something like this up. Crazy.

        The first thing that came to my mind was what Q had recently stated. He claimed that the hag among other global leaders would start wars all over just so they could drastically cut the world population. This tells me nuclear would be involved.

        Obama deliberately hindered our military by cutting funding, growth, taking out military leaders who wouldn’t conform to their ideals etc., The hag was to expand what he had done and introduce even more ways of hindering our might throughout the world and at home.

        These two, along with their masters had sixteen years planned out in making our country equal to third world hell holes. Once those plans were implemented, I’m sure global identification would’ve been much easier to implement.

        I wouldn’t doubt if they were planning on how to get our President Trump out of the way. Or what they could do while he is still in office and waiting until he is out of the picture. I sincerely doubt this is something they will let up on. These people are scary evil, and I wouldn’t mind knowing who were all in that room for that meeting.

          I read the Q drop that you read and also watched the video about hillary being on the ground floor many years ago about that chip that takes down anything moving which then went on to cover the id chip. (Wondered if that’s what happened to JFK Jr.)

          I don’t know who went to that meeting but I feel safe in saying that I’m sure all the global elites from this country were there. Bill Gates, IT and other corporate big shots and any other wealthy persons who have ever mentioned the word global.

          I hope Zuckerberg wasn’t invited to Davos at all. His ego is already big enough. Maybe we’ll eventually learn more about this.

          Not liking where this is going……I agree with you, it is scary.

    I am taking the following two statements about the 4th Quarter and the Annual GDP Rates that were just released from the link in my tweet.

    4th Quarter GDP:

    The increase in real GDP in the fourth quarter reflected positive contributions from personal consumption expenditures (PCE), nonresidential fixed investment, exports, residential fixed investment, state and local government spending, and federal government spending that were partly offset by a negative contribution from private inventory investment. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.

    2017 Annual GDP:

    The acceleration in real GDP from 2016 to 2017 reflected upturns in nonresidential fixed investment and in exports and a smaller decrease in private inventory investment. These movements were partly offset by decelerations in residential fixed investment and in state and local government spending. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, accelerated.

    In both cases what is holding our country and economy back is the IMPORTS that we are reliant upon. Notice in the 4th Quarter and for the 2017 year, there was an increase (acceleration) of imports which is subtracted from our totals. Our President and his Killers absolutely understand that this was the plan of GHB, Bill Clinton, GWB and BHO. NAFTA and China becoming part of the WTO are the two creatures that was born and nurtured by these POS.

    The fact our President was able to grow the Economy by 2.3% in 2017 versus BHO 1.5% with imports increasing is a testament to him and his team. Our President is right when he says that growing GDP by 1% adds an additional $2.5 Trillion dollars and an additional 10 million jobs. He nearly accomplished that in hist first year by outpacing his predecessor by 0.8%.

    Realistically, a goal of 3% for the 2018 year is what we should all aim for. The idea of 4% or 5% is not realistic at this time. The reason being our need for imports. We saw Chrysler announce they are closing a factory in Mexico and expanding their factory in Michigan. Campbell Soup is closing their factory in Toronto, Canada and bringing their entire operation back to the US. Samsung and LG are opening new factories in SC and TN this year. Mazda and Toyota are expanding their production in the US with their factory in Alabama.

    If the Mexicans and Canadians don’t agree to our terms with NAFTA, we need to get the hell out of there immediately. This will cause many new announcements of companies coming BACK to the US. Putting these tariffs on solar panels and washing machines may effect the price by $50 but it allows Whirlpool and other US companies an opportunity to compete. Our President will be announcing massive tariffs on steel and aluminum within the next 90 days. Once again it will cost US consumers some additional money but it will bring our steel and aluminum companies back to life.

    Everything I described and much more that will occur that I didn’t mention will truly have AMERICA BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER! Cutting our need on imports has a multiplier effect. Our GDP by 2019 and 2020 will be closing in if not at 4% Annual GDP. By the time our President walks away in January 20, 2025, 5%+ GDP will become the new normal because factories will once again be up and booming like they did before NAFTA and China’s introduction into the WTO.

      Nailed it.

      Protectionists are rare creatures nowadays, but we will have plenty of evidence that it works by the time Trump leaves office. The republicans have the opportunity to win the entire working class by protecting American labor. And by the way we solve income inequality by making American labor the highest paid in the world.

      Growth rates should be above 5% as they often were during the Republican golden era starting with Lincoln and his 50% tariffs on imports. By 1900 the USA went from a developing country to the world’s industrial super power.

      Time traveler Trump will be proved right when he said to invest in abandoned rust belt factory buildings back during the campaign.

        Great. That will cause a real awakening to find useful purposes for old abandoned factory buildings and will cause a healing in my soul for those old buildings.

        We’ve got some of the most beautiful huge brick abandoned factory buildings in the South too. Some are starting to disintegrate but they only need TLC. Same goes for old brick school buildings. Wish someone would find a use for them instead of tearing them down. What a waste.

    I happily watched the entire interview and it was just BRILLIANT!!! I am so proud to have voted for Trump! He is IN CHARGE! He inspires confidence and optimism!

    And while watching I remembered seeing crybaby Joe Scarborough, the day before Schumer caved on the shutdown, saying Trump was “blubbering” and “doddering”, that Trump had to be “led around” by his staffers, and that Trump even suffered from “pre-dementia”. Really Joe? Joe, did you watch this interview? lol

      We had been told for many years to accept that in a global economy, we needed to get used to settling for less.

      I remember W saying, with a smirk, that on a level playing field, American workers could complete with any workers in the world. Sure, if America became more like the third world.

      And that’s where we have been stuck – being told we had to get with the progressive idea on the right side of history that America was no big deal anymore, and probably was never a big deal.

      President Trump has delivered on his promises.

      I had been so utterly discouraged. But here we are, in an exciting new time for badly needed American leadership and innovation. This is a great time to be alive. This is a great time to be young.

      God bless President Trump!

    So that is what a real interview is supposed to look like!

    I thought it went well and liked the interviewer even though I’ve never seen him before, (probably because I don’t watch his network). 🙃

    I just thought it was a nice interview. There weren’t any gotcha questions, there weren’t any set ups in hopes our President would bite and fail. It was just a nice interview, and I found it to be refreshing and interesting.
    Thank you for posting this for us.

    If all msm journalists presented themselves like Joe Kernen just did then we wouldn’t have fake news.

    I’m so used to msm “gnashing of teeth” interviews these days, it was hard to believe an interview like this could ever exist again.

    I’ve always liked Joe Kiernan of squak box, he has always conducted himself respectfully and is a great interviewer. He is however, wearing a purple tie in this interview. I watched the other interview with snarky Becky and Ross Sorkin of cnbc, Secretary Wilbur Ross completely dismissed them, and their snark…..Joe K. fiddled with his phone during that interview.
    BTW, wasn’t it Cnbc’s Chicago exchange reporter, Rick Santellu, (who actually was the first to express outrage at the Obama administration on the floor and live tv) that sewed the seeds of the Tea Party.
    Don’t watch cnbc anymore, but I do love Maria Bartiromo, the money honey….she’s the best!

    Revealing in the beginning of the interview is how our President Trump does not bring “prejudcies” of the globalists and elites. The roundtable intros revealed their respect of President Trump also.
