    Nikki Haley has taken names and is kicking butt today at the U.N.

    The Palestinian lead negotiator recently told Haley to “shut up.”
    “I will not shut up.”

    Haley calls out the previous administration (Obama/Power) for the “serious error” made in not backing Israel as Obama walked out the door.

    If anyone ever doubted Nikki Haley’s resolve, doubt no more.

    If one needs a pick-me-up tonight, Nikki Haley delivers.
    8 min 57 sec of pure joy.

    Sec Tillerson was in Egypt today, kicking reporter’s butts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxR6fLV77Ok

      All Treepers that are on Twitter, please follow Harmon Wilfred and tweet out his story! He is ex CIA whistleblower who is stuck in New Zealand, separated from his family who is stuck in Canada. He wants to come home. For non Twitterer, he has a website under his name. His story is heartbreaking. Thanks all!

    I posted earlier today that I am reading “Behold a Pale Horse” …
    “Q” recommended it a few days ago… book was published in 1991
    William Cooper died in November 2001

    You can find the book online… pdf


    And look what I found on pages 225/226… remember, published 1991

    “For many years the Secret Government has been importing drugs and selling them to the people, mainly the poor and minorities. Social welfare

    Chapter Twelve The Secret Government • 225

    programs were put into place to create a dependent, nonworking element in our society. The government then began to remove these programs to force people into a criminal class that did not exist in the ’50s and ’60s. The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of
    military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated
    the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment.

    Author’s Note: I have found that these events have indeed happened all over the country. In every instance that I have investigated — the incident at the women’s school in Canada, the shopping center incident in Canada, the Stockton, California, massacre, and the murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane — the shooters were all ex-mental patients or were current mental patients who were
    ALL ON THE DRUG PROZAC! This drug, when taken in certain doses, increases the serotonin level in the patient, causing extreme violence. Couple that with a posthypnotic suggestion or control through an electronic brain implant or microwave or E.L.F. intrusion and you get mass murder, ending in every case with the suicide of the perpetrator. Exhume the bodies of the murderers and check for a brain implant. I think you are going to be surprised. In every case the name of the murderer’s doctor or mental treatment facility has been withheld. I believe we will be able to establish intelligence-community connections and/or connections to known CIA experimental mindcontrol programs when we finally discover who these doctors of death really are.”

      I previously said the Russians involved in this have already made the trails pretty cold. Including the deaths of two possible “sources” in a plane crash.

      Steele only had evidence from third party hearsay. I heard it from A who heard it from B who heard it from C say that this is what happened. Steele who has not been in Russia to verify any sources for over a decade.

      Old old contacts desperate for some easy money from US Democrats. Easy money. Tell them far off stories that they know Dems would Love to be true and know the Dems would never check anything out until way too late if ever.

      Dems paid big money for stories not even worthy of a Russian tabloid publication.

      Steele is in hiding and all other people are in hiding (or dead). So only choice is to make up some additional hearsay stories. Paying more big buck for more pure lies.

      Or they can just pull on one of their other already prepared faked up dossiers.

    I am happy to say we have forced Jennifer Lawrence to take a year (or forever) off from acting because she has become a toxic asset if she is a main character in a major movie,

    So she says now she will take a year off acting and “do” politics. Her agent cannot her get any more good parts, people will not go to her movies.

    She is just doing things to try to keep her ego in the news.
    Her toxic statements: F* Trump, F* Trump supporters. F** America. F** Christians.

    Her last two “B” level movies
    Mother! – an attack on Christians
    Red Sparrow – just now coming out. she is a Russian spy who attacks the US.

    Her themes = She totally hates America and all that it stands for and all that made it great and gave her a job to make millions.

    I started working this campaign against Jennifer Lawrence two years ago and pushed it hard all over. Looks like she is now finally admitting she has become a toxic asset to a movie. Winning. One Hollywood trash at a time.

    She is in the new X-men movie already filmed a long time ago. But I see the studio is featuring less of her as a promo for the movie. and seems to have delayed the opening for a while now for some reason?? yea right. letting toxic JL headlines cool down.

    Lindsay Vonn blew her signature race today, the downhill, and lost. Seems to be bad karma to criticize the President.

      So Vonn gets the bronze, when a gold was expected.

      Let that be a lesson to Trump haters everywhere.

        In a (sort of) off topic there is this:

        I just saw what for me will be the highlight of these olympics:
        Young woman Toth from Hungary (my adopted underdog country at these Olympics, because of their politics of course) just skated the women’s short program in a black leather jacket with sleeves cut off to AC/DC.

        Was great!!!

      Mikaela Shiffrin who placed fifth in the final training run skipped the finals to let another person ski. She did that for two reasons. Shiffrin already has a gold medal and one more race to try for. Plus the team event.

      1) Because of much bad weather there the skiing schedule has been too compressed for Shiffrin to ski all she wanted to.

      2) The US has 6 pretty good downhill women skiers and Shiffrin gave up her spot to let one of the other women get a chance to ski an Olympic final. A country cannot have more then 4 participants in any ski final. So Shiffrin did the team thing to give her slot to a person to help develop more of the young talent – post Vonn era in downhill.

        Shiffrim seems like a sweetheart.

        A little bit too comfy in front of the camera for my taste, but she seems like a good kid.

          Shiffrin is a usually quiet shy and very hard working person. She trains and works so hard that seldom sees many people. But when she does come out in public her open and friendly personality shines. A country girl at heart.

          She just loves people and wishes them to do well, but wants to do better of course. She likes to win fair fights. But will gladly congratulate someone when they beat her. They other women like and respect her a lot.

          All the other women watch Shiffrin. They all film her and study her; So most of the time she has to stay isolated until the competition is over. Then she has 10 minutes to bubble over and let it out and then back to training and recovery.

          PS. Her nickname from many athletes is “Sir naps a lot”. She often will lay down and take a nap in the snow between runs, naps at other times on the lift going up. Naps in the chalet while others are chatting and drinking. Sleeps 9 hours a night. Trains 8 hours a day.

    Let’s get back to Illegal aliens and voter fraud. Chicago is issuing Municipal ID cards so that illegal aliens can vote in elections in Chicago.


    Does this mean I can go vote against the Mayor of London if I vacation there on election day? Maybe someone should sponsor “Let’s go vote in Mexico” vacations. Something for Americans to do on Mexican election days.

    Larry Elder – What Left-Wing Educators Don’t Teach During ‘Black History Month’
    Inconvenient historical notes left on the cutting room floor during Black History Month.

    “About slavery, do our mostly left-wing educators teach that slavery was not unique to America and is as old as humankind? As economist and author Thomas Sowell says: “More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than blacks brought as slaves to the United States or to the 13 colonies from which it was formed. White slaves were still being bought and sold in the Ottoman Empire, decades after blacks were freed in the United States.””

  20. sorry but I’m just not playing the white hat/black hat game – i’m a patriot, not an ideologue

    once a swamp weasel, always a swamp weasel

    everything that sessions has done (which is precious little) and everything he HASN’T done, makes me want to break something

    here he is taking his cues directly from the globalist thug puppet swamp “democrat” playbook…
    russian interference – the latest narrative that they desperately want the President to endorse…to try to CONTROL him and to further weaken him

    observe how the WH press corp slime operatives were hammering that today – that’s all you need to know

    and JS bends over once again for his swamp masters

    “At the Department of Justice, we take these threats seriously. That is why today I am ordering the creation of a Cyber-Digital Task Force to advise me on the most effective ways that this Department can confront these threats and keep the American people safe.”


    another meaningless investigation…more empty lip service, more damage done to the promise and potential of Donald Trump

    this spineless AG needs to be fired or resign – neither of which is happening…like yesterday

    from the FOX comments on the linked article:
    “Dear Mr. Sessions,
    Find out where Obama and Hillary are hiding and put them under oath.”


    • georgiafl says:

      So far, AG Sessions task forces/investigations have been very fruitful.


      • like what? I see Sessions doing anything but tackle the REALLY pressing issues that he should as Trump’s AG…to OPPOSE the relentless assault coming at the President from every direction,

        I see him hiding from them in fact…

        you know – Benghazi / Uranium 1 / Lerner and the IRS targeting conservatives / prosecuting barry RODHAM bill lynch holder rice yates podesta wasseman etc etc etc etc the REAL criminals with actual public domain verified crimes against the American people and the Constitution / STOPPING LEAKING like he promised vowed and threatened to do, and which has continued unabated (oh right we got cartoon leaker “reality winner”)…

        Or WINNING a single case in district court regarding sanctuary cities, implied consent etc etc etc etc

        How about Sessions starts a REAL investigation into the foul VOTER FRAUD that we ALL know the swamp “Democrats” have engaged in HEAVILY – esp in 2016 with the illegal alien vote, instead of the swamp resistance FAKE NEWS Russian meddling fantasy that is simply the latest transparent attack on the President, whom they falsely accuse of “denying” it?

        MS13? please – Marijuana? give me a break

        distraction to the big picture…simple as that


  21. Sounds similar to the handling of clinton emails.
    1. Proof: How the DOJ intentionally threw the Jeffrey Epstein case.
