    It’s been an amazing two days. President Trump made history as the first US President to meet face to face with the leader of North Korea. The media over here swept it under the rug and minimized it but foreign news did not. I am confident that the entire Asian region followed the summit closely.

    It’s also a show of respect to President Trump that the Koreans had shirts that copied President Trump’s campaign slogan. Make America Great Again turned into the Korean version of Make Korea One Again! And on the front of the shirt, pictures of the SK and NK leader and President Trump with his classic double thumbs up. To me, that shows great respect.

    And today, a major league never Trumper went down the tubes. I guess ole Sanford believed the media about President Trump rather than his constituents. bad move, his constituents FIRED HIM!

    So, we have much to feel good about and it’s only Wednesday. That’s the thing about President Trump, he keeps doing great things for We the People and the entire world as well. He is single handedly, despite the lying world media, bringing hope to the people of the entire world. President Trump is inspiring them to make their countries great also. He wants everyone to be safe and prosperous but he puts the responsibility on them to do so. As he said, he is President of the USA, not the world. Some of the incompetent fools that were previous Presidents thought they had the right to dictate how things should be in other countries, Obama the most recent and in every case, they created a disaster while incompetently running the USA.

    I hope that every never Trumper is crapping in their pants tonight. We the People are coming after them and We the People WILL PREVAIL!!!! God Bless President Trump and God Bless the USA!!!

        Great comment. Many try to convey Trump’s ” nationalism” as
        a kind of self- centered U.S. arrogance. Yet again and again he demonstrates respect for other nations, a true capacity to listen, and his greatest assets as a deal-maker are, IMV, a respect for fairness and TRUTH, an honest assessment of what IS happening, and what CAN happen, and a relentless demeanor and will that convinces others that what CAN happen WILL happen, with door number one being hardline, and door number two often being MUTUALLY beneficial. Trump’s ” nationalism” is rooted in respect for the good in disparate nations.

          Excellent point, “David A”…and I think President Trump is a daily, walking, engaging reminder to other countries that an America that “leads from behind” is no good for the entire world. America must lead… must be the brave, innovative, bright light our country was meant to be. Who else is going to do it? History tells us the answer to that.

          What a truly ridiculous motto — “lead from behind” was…an oxymoronic phrase if there ever was one.

          God bless America… and President Trump.

          • Interesting comment LandoftheFree…,

            I was reflecting on a number of things, one of them being that Trump once called his presidency ” a vocation”.

            Vocation is a call from God, and men (here I mean mankind which includes women), who respond to God’s call are following their vocation.

            God Our Father has given mankind free will. We can choose in freedom to follow God’s call or not follow it.

            It makes sense too about the USA, where freedom is cherished. Freedom can only flourish where Truth reigns. God’s Truth is the only truth, regardless what men might say. One might say that America has a vocation too, which is to be a world leader of freedom and truth because America’s constitution seems to embed those two concepts: Freedom and Truth. Did not one one of your founders say the the Constitution was made for a moral people?

            So it seems that America can only flourish when she follows her vocation, which is to be a leader. Not a leader that imposes, but a leader that offers choices to other countries and ‘urges’ them to take ability to take responsibility for those choices. (Sundance has described this many times…I believe he calls it the Trump Doctrine)

            This is what PDJT is doing: in following his vocation, he is also enabling America to follow her vocation.

            May my nation. Canada, find her true vocation under a true leader. I pray for Canada.

            God bless PDJT (& his family) and America in their vocations.

            Apologies for my awkwardness in expressing what I have been thinking about).

      @FL_GUY – Great post! We here at TCTH support our President Trump, and it appears that those outside of our landscape are picking up on the messages from our President.

      My instinct is to continue to strike while the iron is getting hotter – we here need to do what we can to keep the momentum going well into November and past onto 2020.

      Continue to be proactive by helping the local and state candidates that our President might suggest. Watch and question our local political machines and keep them honest about MAGA by whatever means are necessary (phone calls, letter campaign, social media).

      I just wish there was more we could do about the Corporate MSM – which I see as the most serious problem for our President – who has suggestions?!

      Yes – God bless President Trump/God Bless the USA!!

    In HUGE Win for Trump, Xi Jinping Pulls Missiles from South China Sea Leading Up to Successful North Korea Summit

    Leading up to a successful summit in Singapore between President Trump and North Korean leader Chairman Kim Jong Un, new data released by Israeli Private Intelligence Firm ImageSat shows that China removed anti-ship and anti-aircraft missiles from Woody Island, in the South China Sea last week.

    Woody Island, also referred to as Yongxiang Island, is the largest of the Paracel Islands claimed by China in the South China Sea.

    Excerpt:
    The removal of missiles from the South China Sea marks a major victory for President Trump, who has long been seeking to completely demilitarize the critical trade route.

        What you said does point to several of the issues that have plagued Germany by which they will defeat themselves: theirs is an export driven economy (bad move: they should have shored up their domestic markets, but that would not help the neo-Junckers of Germany only the little people!); they stick with the old paradigm of “you lose and I win” (if you destroy your neighbors — and trading partners — economies to boost yours eventually your, very export driven economy at nearly 43%, gets crashed because you have picked your buyers’ carcasses clean and then they hate you, and if they are in the EU you get to pay for their bankruptcies; not a long term winning situation); German schadenfreude with regards to America knows no bounds — this is diplomatic suicide; America is a very large market for your goods and militarily powerful ally…eventually if you poke a bear long enough it will turn around and swipe you, and you will lose.
        Also, never think that anything is a sure thing: they never thought the conditions would change; best laid plans of mice and men Germany — once again you have royally screwed yourself (and the elites deserve it; they have screwed the people of Europe, not least their own ‘forgotten men’ since forever…I hope their chickens come home to roost if just for that).

They are an anachronism, because their original role (along with Czech and Pole observers) was to make up the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission to investigate armistice violations, and there have been thousands upon thousands of violations over the years. After the end of the Cold War, the Czech and Pole missions went home, but the Swiss and Swedes are still there. So Sweden has a little tie to Korea.

    First, President Xi recommended that Eurasian countries focus on China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) “to build a powerful engine to achieve common development and prosperity.” It is understandable why he would do so.

    Established in 2001, the SCO is a Eurasian political, economic, and security organization, which now has eight member states; China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and India. Aspiring member states include; Afghanistan, Belarus, Iran, Mongolia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Turkey.

    FTA – Who would have thought a real estate developer from New York City, famous for plastering his name in big letters on his buildings, would be a champion in foreign policy? Big surprise: It turns out that being confident, tough, and aggressive works well for a president dealing with dangerous pipsqueaks like ISIS and North Korea.

    Trump isn’t intimidated by anybody. Not by business rivals, not by critics, not by rogue FBI agents, not by foreign leaders. Certainly not by failed experts who urge meekness, caution, and limited goals.

    Our president is devoted to one thing: winning for America.

      • It’s a nice piece of paper, but sorry, there’s still a nuclear threat. Aside from the two leaders meeting face-to-face (which is good), nothing concrete has changed.

        This isn’t the first, second or third time NK has “promised” to denuke. That’s gone on for decades. Every previous time they reneged once it got down to the verification process. Or NK declares a new “crisis” requiring them to keep their missles and program for a bit longer until the “threat” passes. Or they decide they don’t like a new US president’s policies as much as the previous president, and they void any agreements. KJU has not said when, how, or declared all of what he wants (aid, $$$, withdrawals of our forces in the region) in return for a verifiable denuclearization.

        Once I can see inspectors signing off on the dismantle of their operational devices, I’ll believe it’s real. Otherwise IMO we’re still in Neville Chamberlain’s “peace for our time” cloud cuckoo land. Good first step though.

Previous sanctions did not stop their programs from continuing to develop, and now they have functional warheads, as well as bio-weapons, plus that little matter of old-school artillery and munitions aimed at Seoul.

            It’s a noble goal to contain this threat. My point was that it’s not going to happen with one, or ten meetings.

          Best to consider the Singapore Summit as a “kick off”meeting and a first step in the diplomatic process of getting DPRK positioned to execute a step by step plan to denuke. The MSM and lefty pundits for some reason see the meeting as “one and done” when this is just the start of a negotiated settlement of the Korean War and disarmament.

          • Agreed. My point was the US and DPRK have done this same dance before repeatedly, always ending in failure because they never run out of ways to back away from completing the process of dismantling.

            So, when I see inspectors and real documentation, not just photo-op explosions of an empty facility, I’ll consider it a meaningful breakthrough.

      On October 10, 2016, amid reports that the Republican National Committee was withdrawing resources from the Trump campaign to focus on down-ballot races, Stewart joined a pro-Trump women’s demonstration in front of the Committee’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. Following the protest, Stewart was fired by Trump Campaign CEO Steve Bannon to “placate” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, who was reportedly “infuriated” by Stewart’s actions. Days later, the RNC and the Trump Campaign announced that they were withdrawing from Virginia, again drawing the ire of Stewart, who blasted the decision as a betrayal of the grassroots and “totally premature.” Despite his firing, he continued to support Donald Trump.

      “Do the rest of the states have to accept any of these three new states?.

      The Constitution makes it plain that we don’t.

      ARTICLE IV, SECTION 3: “New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

      “The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.”

      The three new states would be territories of the United States, not states. Congress can dictate to the three new states the terms of acceptance. For example, Mormon-dominated Utah had to ban polygamy in its state constitution.”

      The affectation of referring to professional media personalities collectively as “the press” is an old PR/ad campaign trick that arose AFTER the US Constitution was written. They want the public to believe that the Constitution is specifically referring to them in the First Amendment, but the truth is that freedom of the press, just like freedom of speech, is an individual right added as a corollary to freedom of speech. Your right to have your thoughts permanently recorded in any available medium is just as protected as your right to voice them out loud.

      There is no constitutionally protected special class of citizens with rights not enjoyed by every other citizen. The authors of the First Amendment were not granting preferential treatment to newspaper barons of the late 18th century. They were protecting individual’s right to publish political pamphlets like the Federalist papers. The corporate sales-staff media are no more “The Press” of the United States than they are the religion of the United States.

        Thinking this through in a completely new way based on what you just said. Freedom of The Press…freedom of the literal presses to print whatever the print setter inserted based on whatever an author wrote. We have the freedom to voice our opinions freely and we The People have the freedom to print our opinion and distribute to others for them to read, thereby giving our opinion power. We have the freedom to have our opinion heard and to have it read.

        The freedom of the keyboard/press to print/post our opinions, insights and facts we/author deems important to distribute to the public. We have the freedom of expressing through the presses in writing for public consumption, the freedom to then distribute and others then must have the freedom to access and read.

        At least that is where I end up from your explanation. Is that the logical conclusion? This actually means more freedom, and more responsibility, for us as individual citizens.

    California Man Has Home Raided, Guns Confiscated After Trying to Register Firearm

    A California man had his home raided, guns seized, and will appear in court this week to face a dozen state felony charges after attempting to register a rifle in accordance with state law.

    Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann attempted to register an AR-15 with the California Department of Justice last month but instead found himself in significant legal trouble. The California DOJ accused Kirschenmann of illegally modifying the rifle he attempted to register. Law enforcement officials raided his home in Bakersfield before ultimately confiscating a dozen firearms and a few hundred rounds of ammunition, then charging him with a dozen felonies, KGET reports. Kirschenmann was accused of possession of assault weapons, two silencers, and something referred to as a “multi-burst trigger activator.” He does not appear to have been charged with any violent crimes.

    The issues stem from a new California gun law, one of the strictest in the country, which redefined an “assault weapon” and required anyone with a gun that fell under the new definition to register it with the state. Joe Pilkington, a court-recognized firearms expert, told the news station that California’s continually changing gun laws can be very difficult to navigate without professional help.

    WHOOP DE DOOOO

    Katie Arrington defeated Mark Sanford in SC. THANK YOU SOUTH CAROLINA! M A G A.
    and here in VA with my and my spouse’s help, Corey Stewart won the opportunity to compete against The star of Steven King’s “IT” (Tim Kaine) for the Senate. If any of Stewart’s advisers are reading this, you might want to use “It’s” VP debate footage to show the people of VA just how loony Kaine came off as. I thought he helped Hillary immensely. If something happened to her, a man who came across as a total nutjob would have become president. (Was that her rationale for picking him? VA had great governors Dem OR Repub until Kaine. He was the first total loser.

    A little background — Corey Stewart vied for the governorship primary last year and gave Establishment candidate Ed Gillespie a run for his money and (my view) only because Frank Wagner ALSO was in the race. Wagner split the vote against Establishment Gillespie. Still the count went late into the night.

    Once nominated, Establishment choice, Ed Gillespie, then distanced himself from President Trump and embraced George W. Bush (Bush campaigned for him in northern VA where all the lessor bureaucrats live so they don’t have to live the liberal Utopia of Washington DD and send their kids to the DC schools). Gillespie at last minute asked Trump to endorse him which Trump did (I’ll bet holding his nose and gagging) but Gillespie still lost BIGLY — so the media and other lefties and never trumpers et al piled on to say Trump couldn’t deliver. True in one way. Trump could not deliver an anti-Trump establishment Republican over the bloc voting of Northern VA.

    Now Corey — a REAL Trumpster — is being painted as “far right” by the likes of the NYTimes and CNN, a sure endorsement for us Virginians who despise the NY Times, CNN and believe NOTHNG they write. By the way, Hillary thought VA was in the bag was close deep into election night. Only after Washington DCs swamp dwellers got home from work in the swamp to vote did VA go to Hillary.
