    I am a longtime lurker with a few comments – I am not as informed as the average long time Treepers, but I saw this video from the Rebel Media. It seems Dr. Sebastian Gorka has his own ongoing program there called The Gorka Briefing, looking into FISAgate or as he describe it> OBAMAGATE. Hopefully it is of interest and worthy to spread:

    (Further – Gorka do have 6 other short videos before this one: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGy6uV7yqGWDeUWTZzT3ZEg/search?query=gorka )

    I am throwing out red meat bait to the easily triggered over at Yahoo. Twice in the last 2 days and not a peep. See below my comment on pretty much any story I could find on Trump. I did get one thumbs up yesterday. I am trying to get some response. Some thumbs down, a snide comment, anything. I am getting nothing, nada, zilch. The entire web world is stone dead quiet regardless of the Olympics. Wow. Nothing even on Huff Po. How about fellow treepers? How are you finding things? How about Facebook? Are those commenters going quiet?

    Yo libs…..where are all the Trump/Russia, Trump gonna fire Mueller, Rosenstein, Sessions, everybody stories? After a year plus of every day, there has not been any story for 2-3 days. What happened? Libs, care to explain? I’ll give a hint, From Rice, To Rice, 1/20/17 @ 12:15PM. Libs, do you really really think the thinking Americans will act like the last year never took place and let your toadies in politics and the media skate away so easily? We have wasted an entire year plus on your total BS.

          Dear Lord, the stuff we are forced to waste our hard earned money on…..Mueller and his gang of hacks.

          Wouldn’t it be great if AG Sessions would destroy the Mueller special investigation by calling for another special investigation to investigate Mueller? Since Mueller still can’t find any crimes and the rest of the country is seeing all kinds of them he’s conveniently ignoring, turn the tables on him and end this BS now.

          Remember how all those American designers said that they would not dress her? Someone in lame-stream media complained about her wearing something European a month or so ago and that was the reply by someone on FOX. Can’t remember exactly who, probably Laura Ingraham or maybe Michelle Malkin. Starting to have “senior moments” is a bummer.

        Along those lines, something I’ve been thinking about………with the “trillions at stake” it seems now would be a good time to start exposing where the dollars have gone to. “Follow the money” Seems to be the best way to expose these huge criminal cartels. I don’t believe these people were conspiring against our country for years without hoping for some type of monetary reward. There has to be some kind of payoff. They don’t strike me as loyal “soldiers” like so many of the patriots you and I are acquainted with.

          Not all are in it for a future monetary payoff. Remember that the bigger names who are pushing the Russia meme (and anything else that obfuscates the truth and obstructs Trump) are already quite comfortable monetarily and in cushy Establishment positions in academia, entertainment, media, or politics. Then there are the meathead snowflakes in college or fresh from college who are too ignorant to understand the implications and consequences to their own futures of their mindless support for Leftwing causes including the takedown of Trump; they’re simply brainwashed.

            Same with the Russia scenario…although..it also may be for more money and power..

            But number one is: They NEVER want us to be friends with Russia. That would be their downfall.

If anything this plays right into Trumps’ hands, if he has the courage to follow through, which based on what he’s done so far, I can’t doubt.

I read a blind item that said that was put out to distract attention away from her having an affair with Trump (ya ok.) But it honestly begs a lot of questions. How did this guy manage to fly under the radar enough to be close to the President as well as Hope? Is he that much of a smooth operator? I mean, he’s obviously smart, good looking, successful, so I can see the initial attraction. But the timing seems very suspect in that literally one day after pics surface of Hope and her new “boyfriend” all this comes out.

      “Red meat” for Democrats always includes unproven allegations provided they’re against a Republican. Read the Daily Mail story carefully, re-read Wrays statement, and in neither will you find any actual confirmation of the accusations by the former wives. If we are to follow “innocent until proven guilty”, and knowing how the anti Trump forces have weaponized old claims of sexual abuse or in this case physical abuse that heretofore have not been prosecuted, then the WH had reason to be hesitant to dismiss an otherwise well-performing professional. I’d withhold judgment until knowing exactly what was written in those background reports.

    The path for citizenship for DACA is clear.
    They get to be first through the big beautiful door in the WALL after it is completed. They go out and come back after the Wall is completed. Then wait 12 years. That’s fair. That’s national security. The good ones who run businesses that employ Americans and/or who served honorably in the military or who work in Emergency Services get visas to stay. They don’t have to go out and return.

    Even if you write a law that says they all can stay and wait for the Wall, some judge will overturn the law.

    Thus, get them out now. Return later.
    Pay them to go now. Incentivize them to go.

    After all, their parents are illegals. And they are squatters, intruders, living illegal existences even though they didn’t choose it as children, they all choose illegality now.

    There is one paragraph in her email that is giving me pause.

    “From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

    1st paragraph: “We had a meeting”

    2nd paragraph: “Pres said to do it by the book”

    3rd paragraph: “HOWEVER, Pres said we can’t necessarily disclose everything to the next admin.”
    I think THIS paragraph is the whole point of this email, nothing else extraordinary in the email. This one word paragraph, with the word HOWEVER, stands out to me. Trying to say that the President ordered us not to tell the incoming team everything.

    4th paragraph: Classified/redacted; Has House intel committee seen this paragraph? Footer said its part of Presidential record, which remains classified I thought.

    5th part: Comey said “Ill keep you posted”

    This theory is the only thing I can come up with to suggest that maybe she DID do this to distance herself from Obama. Combine that with the time she did it, 15 minutes after Obama was out and Trump was in, and the email would be kept by the incoming admin, and I think it may shed some light on the intent of her email.

    Thoughts?

            Now, 6 months of claimed, new rearview mirror as compared to 1400 years of contrary rearview mirror… not a thing to ignore. Further, when we have the upper hand and give them no choice, it is hard to call them a friend. Moreover, this is clearly a tactic Mohammed used when the opposing force had the upper hand. Immediately upon gaining the upper hand Mohammed attacked.

            Being a sucker is not recommended. As soon as Mohammed’s deeds, words, commands are burned, and 100 years passes and there is no reversion to the old ways, then we can say that we are looking out the front window.

      I have no assurances that my suppositions are correct, but I’m beginning to think that at the next hearing of this case, Judge Sullivan will hear Mueller dismiss the case. Here’s how I come to that.
      The new judge in the Flynn case is Emmet Sullivan. The name might be familiar. He is the judge that found that the prosecutors in the Ted Stevens case withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense. So, now, not trusting that the DOJ will follow the rules, he has issued an order in this case:
      …Judge Sullivan issued a tough demand of the prosecution. They are compelled immediately to turn over all exculpatory material in their possession to General Flynn. The last paragraph of the order is particularly strong:

      Finally, if the government has identified any information which is favorable to the defendant but which the government believes is not material, the government shall submit the material to the Court for in camera review.
      The article is worth the short read.

    Well, for what it’s worth, here is my two cents on the current situation with Wray and Rosenstein. I believe that it’s all going to work out. Trump new that what was about to happen as far as revealing the corruption; it was going to be historical and earth-shattering. By having people like Mueller, WRay and Rosenstein, it is going to be much harder for the Press and the Democrats to claim, oh this is just partisanship. These people have credibility with the left. We have been told for over a year now that they are all above reproach. Wray specifically has responded pretty harshly and took action to the people within the FBI that he knew were guilty. Once he has the IG report and evidence in hand, I don’t see how he can help but take action. And I don’t see how the left or the media has any credible route to attack or undermine his credibility when he takes more action. The Porter thing was a screw-up. period. The White House should own it and move on. Kelly should definitely not resign. He certainly wouldn’t if he were a Democratic administration chief of staff! Wray calling it as he sees it just gives him some cover for what he has to do to the dirty players about to go down. I remain hopeful that a reckoning is coming beyond anything this country has ever seen and rightly so! Prayers continue that it is so!

          I agree, Sandra. They both could be telling the truth. 

          What we know: 2 ex-wives and 1 previous girlfriend accused Porter of domestic violence. I ex-wife has a picture she claims resulted from abuse. 1, maybe the same one, claims she got a restraining order against him. Ex-wives say they were interviewed by the FBI. Girlfriend came along after the rumble started.

          We also know the FBI has more investigative tools than the average bear. They could have gotten the restraining order to see what evidence was presented to get the order. If there’s a restraining order, there are police reports. What did they say? Did any of these women press charges? What did the accused say? There would likely be witnesses who saw, at least, verbally abusive behavior or knew about physical abuse when it reportedly happened. Did any testify under oath for the restraining order or were willing to testify under oath or willing to make supportive statements to the FBI? What evidence did the FBI find that verified that the claims went beyond just a he said/she said?

          Apparently none. 

          When the file went to the WH Personnel Management, if the FBI had evidence the claims were true or likely true, why would Personnel Management start their own investigation to figure out what to do, which has apparently been the hold up for full clearance? This looks like a unverifiable he said/she said.

          I’m not saying these women are lying, but neither am I saying women should always be believed. Taken seriously and treated with respect, yes, but it shouldn’t be a news flash that women have been know to stretch the boundaries of truth or tell outright whoopers. 

          So, dimwit reporters, ask the right questions. Did the FBI find any evidence the claims were true?  Why did Personnel Management start their own investigation?

      Looks like this Evangelical Christian who supports Israel needs to give you a Bible lesson as it is apparent you do not know God’s Word based on your comments.

      “Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” Mt. 22:21

      Bible Lesson #1: This is Jesus saying all, including Christian churches in J’lem, should pay their taxes to its government. It is a command and Jesus did not stipulate that the Church didn’t have to pay if USA gives $3B in aid to Israel.

      Your charge that Evangelicals “blindly” support Israel is additional indication of your lack of knowledge of God’s Word so you blindly attack what you not naught.

      Bible Lesson #2: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:3

      Christians should bless Israel as the holy land and all Jews.

      Are you a Christian? I doubt it. You lack knowledge of God’s Word, ignorantly attack His people and Church. As such you might read Deuteronomy 27-28 as the curses are specifically stated for those who curse not bless as commanded.

    One more day (2/14/2018) until Judge Amy Berman Jackson decides on this FOIA case:

    The James Madison Project vs Department of Justice

    …..”USA Today reporter Brad Heath and the James Madison Project, seeks a copy of any application to the FISA court to collect information related to the Trump Organization, Trump’s campaign or people associated with Trump, and any order approving that application. The case is pending in the federal district court in Washington, D.C.”

    How #ReleaseTheMemo Could Undermine DOJ in FOIA Cases
    If the president authorizes the release of a House memo about the FBI, some plaintiffs suing for Justice Department records could get a boost

    Here is what Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered the DOJ to answer on 2/14/2018:

    “A federal judge told the Department of Justice to explain why the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s memo today shouldn’t force investigators to acknowledge the existence of more records related to foreign surveillance.

    Until this point, the Justice Department said it couldn’t confirm or deny the existence of foreign surveillance-related records regarding Donald Trump and his business and campaign associates. That disclosure would hurt national security and could interfere with the ongoing special counsel investigation into Russian collusion and the election, the FBI has claimed.”

      Here’s some disturbing rulings by J. Jackson. I’m not holding my breath on the release of FOIA docs.

      Why wouldn’t she be recusing herself based on the Manafort/Gates case in here court?????

      n December 2013, Jackson ruled that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Washington, D.C. must cover birth control and abortifacients for its employees under the Affordable Care Act despite a ban on abortion or contraception in Roman Catholic doctrine.[14]

      On May 26, 2017, she dismissed a wrongful death suit filed against Hillary Clinton by the parents of two of the Americans killed in the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.[15]

      On October 30, 2017 Jackson was assigned to preside over the criminal case that Special Counsel Robert Mueller brought against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election. She accepted their “not guilty” pleas, granted bail, confiscated their passports, and ordered them to be held under house arrest. She also warned defense lawyers not to discuss the case outside of court.[16]

            Unfortunately, no. What you are pointing at is an lagging economic indicator, not the real problem.

            The real fly in the ointment, as you probably know, is the total US debt….currently $20.6 trillion (and counting).

            While the US has been running up that debt, interest rates been artificially kept low, for a very long time now, in turn creating a massive credit bubble….exponentially larger than the sub-prime bubble. Attempting to normalize interests rates now would have a catastrophic effect on the carrying cost of that $20.6 trillion, in that it would quickly swell our gov’t’s interest payments to unsustainable levels. The problem is we are beginning to see wage inflation start to creep in, usually a sign that the Fed needs to raise interest rates to keep the inflation cat in the bag. And yet, the problem re: the normalization of interest rates REMAINS. Bump up rates, interest payments go up to. We’re in a real bind now.

            Think of interest rates as dancing along a sword’s edge. Too little or too much has very bad consequences. This is all a result of the economic policy decision made by Obama’s crew…including socializing all the bad bank debt from sub-prime (’08-’09).

            Going even further, if you were to suspect that Obama/Clinton/Soros were actually trying to take down the USA while gaining total control over the gov’t in service to “globalism” and eventual one-world-govt, you could hardly conceive of a better plan than to DOUBLE the debt run up by the previous 43 US presidents COMBINED while creating the credit bubble that currently exists. Which is precisely what Obama did.

            That all said, I have no idea how Trump, Ross, and Mnuchin plan to undo this giant credit bubble without a hard landing, but I have confidence we have the right people in place to deal with it regardless of what happens. Trump has chosen his economic team with great wisdom.

                I heard one time that the Total Worth of the US Govt is around $1 Quadrillion.

                That includes all the millions of acres of land, buildings, equipment…and also the estimated worth of all the oil, gas and minerals beneath the surface.

                It is probably more than that now, and will grow as we add more ships to our military fleet.

                Now, that’s just the US Govt.
                The private sector is another story…and is in ‘addition’ to that figure.

                So the $20 trillion in debt is actually small compared to the Total Worth of the USA.

      From the DailyCaller:

      “President Donald Trump released his eleventh wave of judicial nominees Monday, submitting candidates for three powerful federal appeals courts.

      The nominations could precipitate a conflict with Senate Democrats, as several nominees were named to vacancies in states represented by prominent liberals.

      The nominees include Andrew Oldham for the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Amy St. Eve and Michael Scudder Jr. for the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and Mark Bennett for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

      Circuit courts are appeals panels that supervise federal trial courts. They make the final decision on the overwhelming majority of cases in the federal system. The 5th Circuit is based in New Orleans, La., the 7th Circuit is based in Chicago, Ill., and the 9th Circuit is based in San Francisco, Calif. The 5th and 7th Circuits each cover three states while the 9th Circuit covers nine states.”

      —————————-
      From above:

      “Circuit courts are appeals panels that supervise federal trial courts.”

      Very important to remember folks… Trump Admin can’t bring charges to a court that will rule against us… that’s an exercise in futility. Remember that next time you feel the urge to ask “where are the arrests!!!”

    (11) Nobody’s EVER done anything as audacious and painful and General Flynn.
    He is the definition of a patriot.”
    I am following all this since about 2 years from distant Germany, coming closer and closer. During the campaign I fell in love with Trump, but also with this more serious general at his side opening the ralliies. I was very sad, when he left the White House and in awe now.

      It’s been a long time since I read it, but some say that Flynn had very strong opposition to the Iran dealings and planned to strongly address it as part of the administration. The mullah-lovers in the outgoing administration had a lot of fear about what Flynn was going to do so he was their target, secondary only to DJT. Hopefully his work is carried on (but as I type this I wonder if he’s being surveilled constantly by Muller’s team as part of his plea).

      A few quibbles that should NOT take away from Flynn’s valor or sacrifice…

      “nobody asked him to do it, AND he didn’t tell anyone.”

      What he did was entirely with the foreknowledge of Rogers, Trump, Mattis, and Sessions.

      “It cost him almost everything.”

      At the end of all this, Flynn will have VERY strong civil suits against a LOT of people who collectively have a LOT of money, all the way up to the Clintons…to say nothing of the Fed. gov’t. He’ll get his back, and more, including vindication and the restoration of his public and professional reputation. It’s part of what will make the fallout from The Big Reveal so delicious!

    Good article over on Townhall, Dennis Prager, “Liberals and Conservatives Are Unhappy For Different Reasons.

    FTA – (paraphrasing) – Unhappy conservatives (Americans) generally believe they are unhappy because life is inherently difficult and tragic, and because they have made some unwise decisions in life.

    But unhappy liberals (Americans) generally believe they are unhappy because they have been persecuted (by America).

    He goes on to demonstrate how the Left needs victims, the more oppressed the better, the more hate, the more anger; therefore, Leftists aren’t capable, nor will they even allow themselves, to be happy. (Rush has alluded to this for years as well.)

    Consider the Left’s typical victims: women, blacks, Latinos and gays. As an example, a woman may claim ” yeah, being a woman in America, continuously subjected to American misogynists, is just sooooo hard, blah, blah, blah;” What if someone could convince them that as bad as it might be, at least they’re an American women? Ditto for an American black, an American Latino, an American gay, etc.

    The solutions are many and have been well discussed in the past. The most obvious ingredient missing is Patriotism, IMHO. Seems to be a foreign concept to the Left.

    Good article: https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2018/02/13/one-of-the-most-important-differences-between-the-right-and-the-left–one-that-greatly-helps-to-explain-their-differences–is-the-difference-between-unhappy-liberals-and-unhappy-conservatives-n2448253

      Also FTA – Happiness requires gratitude. Hateful, oppressed victims can’t seem to overcome the anger of “gettin’ screwed” by America/Americans. There probably aren’t a lot of hateful types that can espouse gratitude. Sadly, anything but the impossibly elusive ingredient to which they are blind.
