      Oh, they work so hard, don’t they. They have been off for over a week and a half. They start again Monday night and piddle paddle around with a few votes, and now the final votes of the week are tomorrow (Thursday). What a life.

    y’all best have lots of popcorn. I think a number of MOAB’s are about to drop. Everything is pointing in one, and only one, direction.

    Amb Haley states we “and our partners” will handle Iran ourselves after UNSC tells us NO the other day; same day 45 calls a couple of Crown Prince’s (KSA/UAE); the massive 1100+ page OFAC list just published; and now on top of it he body slams the AG and says DO SOMETHING!!

    All you Session’s haters gonna be eating crow for the next 6 months. To Hades with the lot of you…

    Oh, you can all follow the Mad Mullahs thru the door, their time is now extremely short. I think 45’s comments re: assisting the Iranian Resistance “at the appropriate time” is almost upon us. Imminent, one might even say.

    I trust our Lion. He’s got our backs.

    Some things do need to be accomplished/implemented immediately in order to provide an additional layer of protection for schools. IMO, those would be:
    1. Remove “Gun Free Zone” designation for all schools.
    2. Place a trained guard at each entrance. Temporary “Deputy US Marshall” status could be used to enable US Military to supplement local law enforcement for a period of up to 1 year to allow for additional local resources to be hired and trained.
    3. Remove all programs related to Executive Orders creating school policies such as the ones developed by Broward County and others since 2012. Authorize any existing funds towards additional security personnel and infrastructure at all schools.

    Upon completion of the above, then we can discuss additional firearm purchase screening requirements and/or training requirements that would be consistent with the Founders intent of for an armed citizenry capable of defending themselves, their home, and their communities from criminal activity, both private and public.

      If any of these are possible through EOs they’d be a damned sight better than making noises of support over dumb and duplicitous legislation that will take months to go into effect and will have no impact anyway.

    Nine kinds of hell breaking loose at our house.
    Son called from college, phone call laced with expletives.
    “Mom”, he starts in, “What do you mean I can’t buy ammo from Wal-Mart anymore?”.
    He will be 21 in a few months, but a few months, when one is 20 is light years.
    “Mom”, he continues, “Mom!!!!!!! You have to call Trump on this right away”.
    I very calmly told him to call his Congressman, whom he worked for, and voice his opinion.
    Yeah……. I think he will definitely vote in the mid-terms.

    This latest attack on the 2nd amendment is just a small step in the liberals end game.

    They claim they want “assault rifles” banned. What they really want is semi-automatic rifles banned.

    Then the next step is semi-automatic pistols.

    And then ………

    Something I don’t understand. Why has Trump leaving in all these Bush, Obama appointees in offices of FBI, State Dept. and the rest of the Gov’t.? These are some of the very people who are hurting our President. They are all part of the “Deep State” ! So Sundance would you kindly explain why nothing has changed? Regards

      If you are referring to Hicks’ testimony, and it being a reason for her sudden departure; it’s a reasonable conclusion.


        • amber says:

          From the article…

          “Rooney, a member of the committee, slammed his Democratic colleagues for leaking former White House communications director Hope Hicks’ testimony, where she admitted to telling white lies for President Donald Trump.

          “That’s why tonight I’ve asked our Chairman (Mike) Conaway that we need to end this investigation,” he told CNN’s Erin Burnett on “OutFront.” “It’s been going on for a year. We’ve interviewed scores of witnesses and now we’ve gotten to the point now where we’re literally bringing people in for nine hours just so the Democrats can leak to the press something as ridiculous as ‘white lies.’ ”
          Once again Democrats leak testimony to the media. Should Sessions add this to the 31 ongoing leak investigations

  17. Get this crap!!!!

    “Engagement on Donald Trump’s Facebook posts have dropped by approximately 45 percent since the platform introduced a new algorithm change, following a year of pressure from left-wing employees and the mainstream media for “allowing” the President to win the 2016 general election.

    In January, Facebook introduced a major change to its algorithm. In a post, CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed that the change aimed to give greater emphasis to posts from “friends, family and groups” and less to “businesses, brands and media.” The change was followed by a promise to promote what Facebook calls “broadly trusted” news sources on the platform.

    In the month following the algorithm change, engagement on Donald Trump’s Facebook posts dropped sharply. Total engagement dropped by approximately 45 percent, according to data from leading social media analytics firm NewsWhip. In an email to Breitbart News, a representative of Newswhip confirmed that Breitbart’s reading of the data was accurate.”

      I have a business and the way Facebook runs their ‘business’ pages is infuriating. I don’t even use my facebook business page anymore.

      We would make posts, and it would go out to all our followers; we didn’t buy any followers, and only had local people who actually could buy something from our brick and mortar store as followers, essentially . So we grew our followers 1 at a time. We didn’t try to get followers from out of state, or advertise all over the world (on facebook)… and ended up with a pretty tight base of 1000 or so followers who were actual customers that had actually been in our store.

      So facebook changed how they work, about 3 years ago or so. Now, instead of sending your post to all your followers…. they would only send it to like… 5 percent. So most of your followers never even see your posts.

      If you don’t post anything for a month, then post again, they send the post to all your followers… as soon as you start posting frequently again, though, they go back to their old ways.

      It makes it a big waste of time for a small business to use facebook, at least in our situation.

      They’ve changed the way they do things again it seems with politicians (or right wing politicians) but I’m positive President Trump and his team will work around that.

      Trump carried/carries a concealed weapon.

      I remember all the “sky is falling” over DACA. Nothing came of it. Same here and every time there has been a shooting. I’m beginning to think the uniparty likes decisive issues like immigration and guns. Nothing will be solved, but they can keep raising money every time an issue comes up. Never let a good crisis go to waste.

        At least with immigration there is an actual solution to fix the system it’s just untenable to the Uniparty. There is no way to stop violence. People have murdered each other since Cain gave Abel a love tap with a shovel.

        But yes, much of this is about raising money. Hopefully it doesn’t translate into legislation. I still put blame on POTUS for even entertaining this conversation. I don’t need more heartburn, Donald!


    • Hey, I started out headed over the brink until I came here.


    • Michael says:

      There is a legitimate divide in the MAGA camp after Trump’s meeting with legislators today and his openness to passing gun control. There are people attacking the President for breaking his campaign promises on one side and people defending him on the other saying he’s not serious and it’s another fake out like the DACA amnesty meeting.

      I don’t know what the President actually wants but in my book he dropped many places today because he allowed gun control to even be discussed. Hopefully nothing comes of it (Paul Ryan is oddly our hero tonight for saying the House won’t pass any gun control, who would have thought that would ever happen?) but he still messed up by even considering it.

      Another self inflicted wound in communications from the White House. Just the latest in a long string of communications disasters like the Syrian airstrike and DACA and the Rob Porter thing. It’s all so tiresome.

            Which is exactly the same as voting for the Democrat, except that you get to feel good about yourself.

              Oh, I fully admit that. I will NEVER abide a gun controller with my vote but I feel it’s my civic duty to turn in a ballot at every election. Thus I’ll have to vote third party.

        Do people who always want to find fault with PDJT ever get tired of spreading the BS? Just curious, because I simply don’t get it.


  22. Folks prepare,prepare..
    ALL this isn’t going to end well…
    Again Folks… I think this summer/Fall will go **HOT**
    I DO NOT want this to happen.
    But the winds are definably blowing that way..


  23. Reminds Me of “Game of Thrones” …
    Trump,,, We ALWAYS pay Our Debts..
    “The Trump for President campaign sent a $4,000 check to UNC Wilmington Wednesday, more than a year and a half after it held a rally at Trask Coliseum for then-Republican nominee Donald Trump.
    The issue of the existing debt came to light after WECT started investigating whether presidential campaigns paid their bills from public rallies held in Wilmington during the 2016 presidential campaign.
    The rally at Trask Coliseum appears to be the only event where a candidate continued to owe money.**
    Paid.. #maga
