    FBN has done an EXCELLENT job of cherry-picking the two segments from that whole 1 hour long meeting that either ARE Anti-gun, or can be edited down to SEEM they are Anti-Gun.

    They’re showing the young male HS student who’s freaking about AR15’s, and the very emotional father who spoke about School Security- but they edit out the part where he clarifies that it’s Security that he’s talking about.

    Trump tweets:

    Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!
    So where in the world is he???????????? Looking more and more like a gray hat.

    Here is the White House link to today’s, over 2 hour, Vice President Pence Hosts Second Meeting of the National Space Council.

    The opening statements by the council members, from VP Pence, to Commerce Sect. Ross, to the different panelists who came up and answered questions – there is a lot going on and a host of new ideas on how our nation will be up to the task of what’s happening in space, not only exploration but competing with other nations, there is a lot of stuff learned about what China has been up to mixed into this session.

    Worth listening to for getting an idea of what will be coming up in our nation’s future regarding space, business, taxes, regulations.

    After a very long time of not listening, today I listened to Rush Limbaugh just out of curiosity and to hear what he is talking about these days. Anyway, he said that the Dems have been winning in special elections and have flipped several districts that are in supposed red districts where POTUS Trump did well, and in some cases he did exceedingly well.
    He went on to say that the Dems and the Left MSM are keeping this trend in sort of a quiet mode, intimating that their strategy is to keep flipping as many districts as they can and then surprise the GOP in the Mid-Term elections.

    There are many Treepers that are very politically well informed and understand this well, and I pose my questions to them: How well positioned is the GOP to hold or even add to the House, and especially to add to the Senate?

    I keep hearing that we should expect to lose the House and most likely the Senate because traditionally the president’s party loses traction during the Mid-Term elections.
    Is this what we are headed to?

      I think the Left MSM are keeping quiet about it because the Dems are maxing out their voter/election fraud credit card right now. There’s no way I believe they are winning all these elections legitimately. I keep hearing there is a voter/election fraud bombshell coming from the DHS. It better get here soon. They have been caught red-handed mistabulating votes (Michigan recount), with impossible vote counts (EVERY county in California had a higher percent of votes than registered voters), stuffing absentee ballots (Broward County poll was caught doing this in the 2016 presidential election), busing out of state voters in (New Hampshire was won by Massachusetts Democrats and there have been eyewitness reports of busloads of people being brought from out of state), all of this stuff is of course ignored by the MSM, but it’s all over alternative media. It is the one thing that infuriates me, and I’m tired of hearing about how we need to gather evidence to prosecute because this is so shamefully out in the open and has been for some time.

    • These are State houses where the race is always close. In Kentucky’s election (yesterday or day before) the Dem narrowly lost the seat before. This time around the Republican committed suicide and his wife stepped in at the last minute. Hardly something to point to with concern. I imagine Rush wants people to engage and not lose interest. Republicans are notorious for not voting in Special elections.

      This article in the first link does make me a bit nervous, I admit. This article is ONLY about special state house positions, but it is a bit disturbing.

      However, I saw yesterday where the Rep. House fundraising for the upcoming Congressional races this fall was ahead of the Dims, so that is good news.

      AND, in the second article I have linked, there’s this good news:

      “A new Gallup Poll finds that nearly half of all Americans are satisfied with their perception of the U.S. position in the world. That’s the highest that collective national perception has been in 13 years.

      And, get this, the 45 percent who feel that way is fully 13 points higher than it was just a year ago.

      Why do you suppose that is? A year ago. Hmm, what happened in the winter of 2017 that could possibly explain a surge in positive self-perceptions of the U.S. global position? The Patriots winning the Super Bowl? No, not likely…”

      I think there is a lot of room for optimism, but we have to get out and work for backup for PDJT. The Dims are fueled by irrational hatred and Satan’s imp, Eric Holder, is out there spending Soros’ filthy lucre getting state’s redistricted to favor Dims, so we can’t take our foot off the gas!

      We’re in trouble. The Congressional approval poll is tilting back toward the Republicans but that doesn’t measure passion and probably hasn’t baked in the stock market fluctuations. The out party always has the passion. Right now, we’re toast. We didn’t get any solid accomplishments out of the gate last year because the GOPe was too butthurt to work with Trump and Sessions committed treason against the MAGA agenda by opening the door to a special prosecutor and then sucking up to the deep state.

      We need infrastructure and a wall and 3%+ GDP between now and late October.

      Also, the Dems won’t be able to help themselves. They will turn the identity politics up to 11 around mid-summer. Right now, Rush is right. They are in stealth mode. But the leftists can’t help themselves. They will overplay their hand sooner or later.

        I think that POTUS Trump has had a very successful first year and people’s attitude about the tax cut/reforms is beginning to show up in recent polls (don’t have link, but heard about it on the radio). They are seeing how much larger their paychecks are and are more optimistic about economic outlook.

        Also, according to some polls, the American people are not buying the Left Media’s narrative about the Russia collusion and believe the Ozero44’s administration spied on Team Trump and on POTUS Trump.

        So, I don’t think we are in irreparable trouble as much as we need to spread the positive narrative of the first year’s successes and highlight the corruption the Dems are part of to subvert the will of the American people and the election results.

        Having said that, it will be a lot of work. Everything has been a lot of work for the last few elections and will continue to be an uphill battle going forward, because the Dems play dirty and cheat and lie, and we have to find ways to counter all that. It will be difficult, but we can do it because we have an unusual president who is a fighter and he will do all he can to retain the House and expand in the Senate.

          Impeachment is what is motivating the Dems. Beyond that they have nothing. Though they may think that impeachment is a viable political message, they have no evidence of any Russian collusion between team Trump and the Putin/Russia. No evidence. If there were any evidence we would have heard it already, because the Dems in Mueller’s team would have leaked it already.

          Not being naive and knowing that many in the Left would vote for the Dems just on impeachment as a message, I don’t think that people in the Rust Belt who are now gainfully employed and have good paying jobs, and all those whose paychecks are larger and who can actually enjoy the fruit of their labor a bit more will be persuaded to vote for the Dems when the Dems don’t have a message other than ‘hate Trump/impeach Trump.’

        Please don’t assume that I watch CNN. Like I wrote in my original comment, I had stopped listening to Rush and listened yesterday out of curiosity when he was talking about all the special elections the Dems have won.

        Having said that, I tend to agree with your optimistic outlook as also poll numbers have fluctuated to the GOP side and maybe they will hold until the Mid-Terms. But I do think that every race will be strongly contested by the Dems and they will resort to all their usual cheating and tricks. Their friends in the media will help them again, as always.

        I would like for the Senate to add more true conservatives that are on board with the Trump agenda, because as it is we have many RINO’s who hate him and will do everything to discredit him. And if it were the case that they have a bill to impeach him, they would go along with the Dems and impeach him.

      You would think that if he was spying for Russia that he would have flown straight there and been welcomed with open arms.
      It is very difficult to figure out why he did what he did. We will probably never know because we can’t believe out government and we can’t believe him. However if Soros and the left wants him free then I don’t.

  18. Donald Trump TODAY: “Ask Jeff Sessions!”

    true patriots and conservative ideologues who have been apologizing for this SWAMP embedded OBSTRUCTIONIST in the WH, need to WAKE UP and call for Sessions’ immediate resignation.

    This is getting ridiculous.

    He continues to SEVERELY compromise and damage the Trump presidency and by extension, the America First agenda.

    It’s simply counterproductive and ridiculous to celebrate him as an advocate of “Trumpism”, but NO ally of Trump…and absurd to contend that PDJT’s CALLING out JS repeatedly is some type of chess, or the strategy from the beginning…

    He CAN’T fire him – Sessions, Cryin’ Chuck and their pals, plus the coordinated, relentless DOMINANT swamp media POLITICAL narrative have assured that…

    All he can do is to continue to tell Jeff Sessions and the American people on Twitter how he feels about it, and IMO hope that he can force him to resign

    Time is quickly running out on the promise and potential of Donald Trump and MAGA!
    He deserves better, MUCH better. And so do we.

      Time for a reality check.

      At the start of the administration there was a decision by DJT to keep Comey against the recommendation of Sessions and RR. The Buck Stops There.

      Don’t like RR? The Buck Stops in the Oval Office.

      Every Law and Order success of the last 12 months have gone through Sessions.
      ICE, the plan and action to destroy MS-13, the actions against sanctuary cities, the strict enforcement of deportations, the demand for full sentencing for felons, the 27 investigations on-going into Leaks of Secrets, the secrecy for a year around the Arkansas investigation (and three other cities) into the Clinton Foundation.

      As the election crimes fade away from view, Sessions is on top of all the other crimes you moan about. Uranium One will be coming when ready to go public. Every other crime within the FBI and DOJ is being investigated. All of them. the IG will have some covered, and Sessions has the others of newer vintage.

      It takes time to do federal investigations. Often well over a year. These categories of crimes are compounded with National Security patina, making them very difficult to explore, document, get indictments and prosecute.

        That is the ONLY way the President can replace him w/o the swamp interfering or giving them ammunition for impeachment, were Donald Trump to fire him. His hands are tied.

        And the only hope of ending the relentless assault from Sessions’ swamp and media buddies that has so damaged the possibilities of MAGA from DAY 1 of Trump’s term…and of course since he announced in 2015, really.

      As a U.S. Attorney in AL before he became that state’s AG and a US Senator, Sessions earned the nickname “The Silent Executioner”. Why? In part, because the most effective prosecutors always keep their mouths shut, and no one sees them coming.

Since Mueller is already on Manafort, I’d hammer him to get Podesta. Podesta is the key to taking down the Clintons. The Clinton Foundation looks to be nothing but a money laundering scheme to clean bribe money for the Clintons.”

            So this move of Mueller’s against Manafort could be black hat or it could be white hat. I fear it is the former, but hold out a glimmer of hope for the latter. For what it is worth, Q some time back predicted that Mueller would wind up cooperating with the good guys, but would come out of it with his career blemished, or something to that effect.

    John Helmer, a real journalist who has lived in Russia for decades, has an excellent (but lengthy) piece on the Mueller indictments.

    Helmer includes some glorious take-downs of the 37 page indictment. The best observation may be the one at the very end.

    “If Mueller’s small numbers are correct, then (Mueller’s principal defendant Yevgeny)Prigozhin may have spent much less money, and to lesser effect and purpose than he had led his client to believe and pay for. If there’s a difference between what Prigozhin was paid and what the Mueller indictment suggests he spent, Prigozhin may have a case for fraud to answer to Russian prosecutors…”

    Lol. Prigozhin may end up in jail afterall (not).

    As for “Project Lakhta” –
    “Lakhta is much better known these days in St. Petersburg as the name for the Lakhta Center. This is the 462-metre skyscraper being constructed to serve as Gazprom’s headquarters, and as a recreational and commercial complex. It is planned to be the tallest building in the city, in Russia, and Europe-wide.”

    —>>>”Many, if not most St. Petersburgers didn’t want the building, so the prominence of the name starts with strong negative connotations. Budget overruns, corrupt tendering, and construction contract kickbacks under criminal investigation by the city authorities add to the Lakhta name’s notoriety. The likelihood that a Russian government intelligence or security agency would give such a name to one of its operations is zero, Moscow sources believe.”

    “That Prigozhin would have named his operation Lakta hints at a link to Gazprom which the company, already under several different US sanctions, will be embarrassed to contemplate. Mueller doesn’t make the link, and the US media have failed to cast the innuendo.”

    Catch that last? Yup. Gazprom. Ring a bell? Too bad we have an incurious media.
    ***note – Helmer’s site has been down in the U.S. for a few days now. One may need an alternate route for access.

    I’m watching this CNN ambush “town hall” which is misnamed as it’s pure advocacy for gun control. This is terrifying me. I really, really, REALLY hope the GOP in Congress has enough strength to resist any calls for an assault weapons ban.

    I really thought when Trump was elected President that we wouldn’t have to worry about gun control for at least four years but yet here we are. And Marco Rubio cucking isn’t making me feel better.

      I used to be hugely anti gun. From sandy hook onward my thinking has changed. This week I’m ready to stock up on guns and donate to the NRA.

        I was the same way, until a friend of mine who is a swat team sniper made me learn how to shoot because my husband was getting deployed and was going to be gone for several years and I needed away. to protect myself and my daughter. What’s funny is he taught me using a AR-15 because it really is the easiest gun for a woman to shoot. I was hooked within minutes of shooting it! And now I have several.

      It just comes down to common sense. You absolutely cannot convince the majority of people that the way to stay safe from Guns is to give away all your guns. They can talk all they want, but the reason Obama didn’t do it when he had the chance is because the American People will not stand for it.

      Pay close attention that you rarely see average black people advocating gun control. Regular folks living in the hood know that the only protection you have against thugs is if you have a gun yourself.

    Rubio just did as good as is possible for Rubio in this town hall thing. I gained a little respect for him having the balls to do it. Of course he floundered and flip flopped and looked like a little boy, but at least he showed up. I wouldn’t have because nothing good can come out of it, but at least he tried.

    I don’t have any experience that would relate to being in a mass shooting situation and confess that I can’t predict what I would do.
    Is the overwhelming reaction when these start is to take the “flight” route and cower in the classrooms and closets?
    Without a gun in the hands of a good guy to fight back, you wonder why no one fought back for survival?
    Parkland went on for minutes, 17 killed and many more injured.
    No one tried to grab the gunman to overpower him, fight back to try to stop him?
