      Great video. I have friends/colleagues that live and work in Alberta Oil & Gas industry. I used to live there myself. They are all watching this disaster (for Canada) occur and are powerless to do anything about it. Canada gov doesn’t listen to any of the conservative provinces in the middle or to the west. Unlike the US, Canada does not have a Senate, so the power comes purely from population, which >50% reside in the Ottowa-Toronto–Montreal-Quebec region.

      Anyhow, one of my friends recently told me that he “is watching this disaster happen in slow motion”. Funny to hear that same comment in this video.

    This is a very important case for asserting the Presidents power to appoint officers of the US. This has implications for Special Counsel Mueller who is an illegally and unconstitutional appointed officer. Only the President has the power to appoint a Special Counsel if it was made legal and constitutional.

    LUCIA ET AL. v. SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

    JUSTICE KAGAN delivered the opinion of the Court.
    The Appointments Clause of the Constitution lays out the permissible methods of appointing “Officers of the United States,” a class of government officials distinct from mere employees. Art. II, §2, cl. 2. This case requires us to decide whether administrative law judges (ALJs) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC or Com- mission) qualify as such “Officers.” In keeping with Frey- tag v. Commissioner, 501 U. S. 868 (1991), we hold that they do.

      Wonder if Special Counsel Mueller finds it curious that both Hillary Clinton and James Comey voiced their most recent oppositions to this Administration from Dublin, Ireland? Hillary, there to receive another meaningless Fake Award and Comey, there at the very same time to sightsee.

      Now, Special Counselor Mueller has power vested by RR to go after anything and everything he so chooses. Doesn’t he find it a bit more than coincidence that the woman that paid for the Fake Dossier and the man that let her off the hook for it just happen to end up in the very same tiny corner of the world at the same time?

    I’ve been seeing where Soros thugs have been trespassing on ICE property and blocking ICE transports. Here’s what I’d like to see done to them.

    The Israelis apparently developed an artificial skunk spray for crowd control that is hard to get off. The FEDs need to tell these people they have 1 hour to vacate the area. After one hour, they need to hose every one of them down with the stink. It will render them useless. Most will disperse and those that don’t can then be arrested. Apparently, it takes days to get rid of the smell so if they had a job before they attacked ICE, they won’t afterwards. The ones that get locked up will be REAL popular with the other inmates.

    One round of this tactic is probably all it will take to end this criminal activity. Something needs to be done because not taking action only encourages more of it. This way, the courts are not clogged and the thugs neutralized.

    And for Administration officials being harassed in public places or at their homes? Put a team of undercover FEDs with them. Start arresting and prosecuting these people for assaulting a FED official. Make it widely known that you will have a felony prosecution. It will stop happening. The thugs will not know if there are undercover agents or not around. They will be afraid to cause a problem if they think they are about to really get into trouble. JMHO

      I like it but…. assault is a specific thing… and I suppose the legal definition varies state to state. I tried looking up laws about noise, shouting and stuff is disturbing the peace… It seems that there should be a real law they are violating… Another one is trespassing.. If they are shouting (harassing) on private property, that could be one, but the property owners have to complain about violations.. *sighs
      The law is a mystery many times… You would thing it would protect people, but I don’t think it does. 😦 It protects the criminals,,, we all know it.

        Not a q follower or believer, but that is one of a very few reasons acceptable to keep the vegas massacre veiled in secrecy. This was the first time I was aware of that POTUS “lied” to us. He told the nation he would let us know everything in “a few days”. Never happened and I am quite sure he knows what happened, unless his FBI is keeping info from him. More likely it is a national security issue and he cannot speak to it. Either way, good, innocent people continue to be massacred on the streets and I am becoming more suspect of LEOs everyday.

              Cold anger > hot anger

              Hot anger is rash and acts without thinking.

              Cold anger is deeply calculating, patient, and thorough.

              It is cold anger that leads to the greatest and best revenge, while hot anger leaves it’s practitioner in prison.

              PDJT practices cold anger. It’s why I’m willing to be so patient. He’s got a plan, and the plan is obviously working. The left is increasingly becoming unhinged with hot anger.

      and many elected Trump to fix this. The only change that has been brought about is increased numbers invading, increased cost to us ( bet more than tax relief for most) and countries openly calling for invasion laughing at Trump and revealing his ineffectiveness. Sorry guys, but that is what’s happening. We thought ( at least I did) border would be secured, wall started, money transfers would be taxed or stopped, welfare/food stamps restricted, fed grants to orgs like Catholic charities would stop. None of that has happened. Lol Ivanka personally funding “the children”. Would have preferred her purchasing air flights for their return. I STOPPED donating to my Lutheran church because of this.

      At this point, imo, border is the only thing that matters. No border, no country. Illegal immigration and border has consistently driven the last 20 years of elections like no other issue. That has not changed. It will be the issue. We will see how the deplorables react.

Congress, courts, DOJ are all handcuffing POTUS, daring him to act then slamming him. Think about the obstacles and consider the time frame. To my knowledge we do not have a completed architechtural plan for the project, have not even bid this out yet to the companies who did the prototypes or others for alternate security where there can be no wall. After those steps which take lots of time, how many lawsuits will be launched by environmental groups, landowners, eminent domain and unfriendly states. A decade at best provided we keep control, keep the desire and the will. Not likely. IMO, the quickest way to get it going is militarize the border. It would bring the opposition to the table OR the effects of a secured border would be so noticed and so positive, you red pill millions more into the future. That would be a “win/win” JMO

Why do you think the media does not ask your average md or nurse (on TV) what the real problem is with healthcare cost?

Some may have been legal, but they were definitely not trying to assimilate. When my daughter needed minor medical treatment in two different countries, they demanded cash upfront before being seen….but not so in US hospitals. When I went to my local Social Security office to sign up for SS after working and paying into it for 35 years, I was one of the few English speaking people applying.

          Mad Max wanted her fellow leftists to target anyone in the Trump Administration, but so far they have only targeted (with respect to Scalise & Rand) the women in the Trump Administration and I believe the reason for that is twofold.
          First, they expect the women to be cowed by this–but I do not expect these strong women to be deterred much myself and second, these leftists themselves are cowards–do not expect them to target men who would easily strong arm their way past these I-think-I’m-tough-when-I-wear-pink soyboys and feminazis.

        Politico has an article up today (I know, I know) that says this is all justified payback for the town hall meetings after Obama was elected. You’ll recall that the Tea Party confronted lawmakers about Obamacare.

        Does anyone have thoughts on this? I think it’s a poor comparison because townhalls are intended to be the time and place for confronting lawmakers. That’s where the communication is supposed to occur.

      From Kurt Schlichter’s article linked above:

      “Many of us are predicting that eventually these foam-spitting, psycho liberals are going to embrace violence out of frustration at their inability to recover the power we stripped from them, but we’re already past that point. Just ask Steve Scalise, alive today only because the Bernie bro who tried to massacre a bunch of Republicans, as well as Jeff Flake, did not know how to shoot.

      But we Normals do know how to shoot, and that’s significant…”

      Everywhere I turn the last couple of days people are writing about the feeling that things are about to get ugly. I hope not. I pray not. But the hate and hysteria over the last week or so has been breathtaking. And there has not been one single Dim leader to condemn either the actions or the rhetoric, has there? Did I miss it somehow?

      The Left has tried their usual lies, they have tried intimidation. If that doesn’t get us to obey their commands and they hate us and think we’re evil, what on earth is left for them to get power but to try to destroy us?

      As Kurt says in his article when someone tells you they want to hurt you, you should believe them. So be careful out there.

    “It’s Crazies All the Way Down

    Just in the last few days, the liberal outrages have been hard to keep up with: hounding the Secretary of Homeland Security out of a restaurant, then “demonstrating” on her lawn with chants and blaring audio of crying children; denying the White House Press Secretary and her family dinner at a Virginia restaurant; trying to get Hall of Fame basketball player Kevin McHale fired from his job as an NBA announcer because he attended a speech by the President of the United States; falsely accusing an ICE agent who is a double amputee as a result of an IED explosion in Afghanistan of being a neo-Nazi; confronting the Attorney General of Florida as she left a movie theater. And that is only a partial list, covering only the last few days.

    You will note that usually, when harassment takes place in person, the victim is a woman. I suppose members of the fascist “Resistance” are afraid of getting punched. They should be.

    How many Americans know about these outrages? How many understand that the Democratic Party’s most stalwart supporters are stark, raving mad? Not enough…”

    Insurrection is Here; How Long do We have Until Civil War 2.0 Starts?
    By Peter Barry Chowka

    Organized lawlessness is spreading to cities across the United States but the news is almost totally ignored and blacked out by the mainstream media.

    These ominous uprisings are taking various forms but the most visible and aggressive ones involve Antifa-style “occupy” socialist and anarchist street mobs dedicated to taking down ICE – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal government policing agency that is part of the Department of Homeland Security…

    Cities around the country including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and in Washington State and Utah have seen waves of demonstrators assemble at local ICE headquarters in attempts to shut down the agency’s operations enforcing immigration laws, including processing deportation orders against illegal criminals…

    One of the largest such actions is well into its second week in the leftist haven of Portland, Oregon, and it’s growing into a semi-permanent tent city of hundreds of radicals dedicated not only to frustrating ICE’s work but to totally abolishing the agency…”

    Trigger Warning–Source is Sucky CNN!!!

    But I thought this was interesting. I had a discussion with Treeper Coloradochloe yesterday about the 100 mile rule where Border Patrol could stop and question people. It is notable that I read yesterday where the always delightful Diane Feinstein has introduced legislation to remove the 100 mile rule. Those Dims! Such scamps they are! Always full of the dickens and trying to pull something!

    So now, I’m totally all in for a northern wall as soon as the southern border wall gets built.

    “Border patrol agents are stopping people on highways in New England to check their citizenship

    Far from ground zero in the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration along the southern border, US Customs and Border Protection checkpoints on highways in Maine and New Hampshire are catching the eye of civil liberties groups.

    On Interstate 95 near the remote northern Maine town of Lincoln this week, the Border Patrol said it made nine drug seizures and two arrests for immigration violations during an 11-hour checkpoint operation in which agents asked motorists about their place of birth and citizenship status…

    Customs and Border Protection says the US Supreme Court has affirmed the agency’s ability to ask motorists’ citizenship status, even if they have no suspicion. Agents use training and questions to make decisions about a traveler’s citizenship or residency, it said…

    Armed with search authority to conduct immigration checks within a “reasonable distance” of 100 air miles from US land borders and coastlines, the Border Patrol also set up a checkpoint last weekend on Interstate 93 near Woodstock, New Hampshire.
    The June 15-17 operation resulted in the arrests of five undocumented immigrants from Brazil, China, Ecuador, El Salvador and Mexico as well as the seizure of drugs, according to Customs and Border Protection…”

    “Once Anderson became responsible for the office’s finances, she found that Clarke’s office had for years been ordering abnormal quantities of equipment, much with seemingly dubious business value, she later told House investigators, according to multiple congressional officials with knowledge of the probe who spoke with TheDCNF. After some investigating, Anderson told investigators she believed Davis was working with Abid to steal taxpayer funds, the officials said.”

        I think that a hanging would mobilize the Left and media into a higher state of frenzy. 1000 hangings and a relative reign of retributive terror would be required, but this would horrify the country and ultimately empower the Left. The answer, I believe, is a campaign to demoralize and delegitimize the Left and media through concerted, fearless and exuberant confrontation at every social level. This means that EVERY Trump spokesperson and cabinet official would be charged with directly challenging the media professionally and personally both for their argumentative premises and their professional qualifications and history. In short, a “get in your face” campaign — exercised with total impersonal cheerfulness. The media and Left need to be made to understand what defensiveness means, to be denied every presumption of the moral legitimacy they exploit, and to be exposed by happy warriors as miserable merchants of hate and lies.

This entire ramping up of violence leads back to one thing, IMHO, and that is Trump is illegitimate President because of “mu Russia” Again IMHO it is time for him to step in and declassify everything, this will lead to the resignation or firing of Rosey, will shut down the Muller fiasco, and possibly even lead to resignations or firings of Wray and Sessions. Too many people are being harassed or destroyed because of this. It has to stop and the only person that can do this is our President. I don’t understand why he would let this escalate any further, We could loose people in Cabinet positios that are very good, which is what the left is trying to do, or possibly Sara, which would be a tragic loss. You have unstable nut jobs like Maxine Waters calling for more of this violence, I mean when is enough enough?

    WHY THE LEFT IS HAVING A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN

    QUOTE;

    “Trump is what the shrinks call the “presenting complaint.” The real problem, as is often the case in psychotherapy, is something entirely different. And it is this: The left is dead. It’s not only dead, it’s decomposed with no there there or anywhere.

    Only dopes or con artists believe in socialism anymore (hello, Venezuela!) and identity politics has been exposed as the racist shell game it is with blacks and Latinos actually doing better than they have in decades under the current pro-capitalist administration.

    So the left has nothing to say, only most of them don’t quite realize it yet. But this blockage, this reluctance and even inability to deal with what is actually happening shuts down the brain and emerges as anger, the hamster wheel of constant rage against Trump.

    And that, of course, feeds on itself, as we have seen for the past year and a half, making matters worse, not just for the obvious reason — the aforementioned alienation of the public — but for what it does to their own minds.

    . . . . . . . . . . .

    As an ex-leftist myself, I am acutely aware how ideology can be used as an excuse for destructiveness. I attended meetings in the sixties and seventies where people endlessly discussed violent action, but almost never discussed what they really wanted to do if they took control. Sound familiar?”

    Call the House Ethics Committee 202-225-7103 to impeach Maxine Waters from Congress.
    Get Maxine Waters charged for advocating & encouraging bullying, harassment & violence from mobs before she gets us all killed by the loons who listen to her hate of government officials.

    Get out of your car when you see them in public places & GATHER A CROWD to assault them??
    You mean gather an illegal flash mob made up of people you don’t know, don’t know their mental status, don’t know if they have guns & don’t care if they use them? In order to target a group, stop & overthrow the government because of their right to be in public, because of their right to a secular creed (which thank God is different from hers).

    Which “god” does she think agrees with her -Satan? Not just ball fields anymore for Maxine.

    In Online Sales Tax Decision, Supreme Court Completes Its Inversion Of The Commerce Clause

    (Awesome piece -IMO)

    “….In other words, the only way these taxes can be enforced is ultimately through the kind of restrictions on interstate trade that the Commerce Clause and the entire Constitution itself were written to prevent. That’s why the Supreme Court was right to decide, for 50 years, that a state’s ability to tax requires the retailer’s “physical presence” in the state—and a physical presence more substantial than the Sears Catalogue or Kennedy’s preposterous insistence that “a business may be present in a state in a meaningful way without that presence being physical in the traditional sense of the term.”

    In the traditional sense of the term? Have basic metaphysical categories like “presence” and “physical” suddenly changed their meanings? (There are a lot of howlers like this, as when Kennedy declares that in 1992, “the Court could not have envisioned a world in which the world’s largest retailer would be a remote seller.” Let me introduce you to the Sears Catalogue. I don’t know if Sears was ever the world’s largest retailer, though it must have been close, but it had exactly the status 100 years ago that Amazon has today.)…”

    VDH is keeping track of the left/never-Trump/msm absurdities

    FTA – A month from now there will be a new manufactured news story that Donald Trump is savage, represents an existential danger, or is unhinged. We will hear of another Trump official cornered and driven out from a liberal-owned Beltway or New York City restaurant. An unhinged Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) will rant some more about impeachment.

    And then the current hysteria over the border detainments will be filed, and go the way of the “s—hole countries” frenzy or Melania’s jacket melodrama.

    The GOP should require the Democrat Party renounce Maxine’s comments. She is trying to start civil unrest in our nation. By requiring the Democrat Party to renounce her comments, the GOP is acting responsibly for our nation, but also fomenting unrest among the Democrat Party.

        The democrats passed a tipping point under Obama, probably with the Obamacare vote. There are few remaining moderate dems holding high office. As a result, the only dems who are elected to Congress are from very wacked blue districts or states. These people have risen to the top of the party and taken it further left. They’re doomed nationally.

    For any and all who said IG Horowitz did NOT effectively “indict” Peter Strzok et al, Sheryl Attikson out with a barn burner…

    WHAT DID PETER STRZOK DO?

    QUOTE;

    “The earth-shattering finding on Strzok by the inspector general (IG) confirms a citizenry’s worst fears: A high-ranking government intel official allegedly conspired to affect the outcome of a U.S. presidential election.

    The IG’s report found that:

    – Strzok showed bias in his decision to prioritize the Trump-Russia investigation over the Clinton probe.

    – His texts “potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions they made [re: Clinton and Trump-Russia probes] were impacted by bias or improper considerations,” “appeared to mix political opinions with discussions about” the Clinton classified email probe, and included “statements of hostility toward then candidate Trump and statements of support for candidate Clinton.

    – “Most of the text messages raising such questions pertained to the [Trump]-Russia investigation, which was not a part of this review.”

    – Strzok had a “biased state of mind but, even more seriously … a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects” and demonstrated behavior “antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice.”

    – He brought “discredit” to himself, “sowed doubt about the FBI’s handling” of the Clinton classified email probe and “impacted the reputation of the FBI.”

    – The damage “extends far beyond the scope” of the Clinton probe and “goes to the heart of the FBI’s reputation for neutral fact-finding and political independence.”

    – He showed “extremely poor judgment” and “a gross lack of professionalism.”

    – He used personal digital accounts for FBI business.

    If you’re still not sure what to think, read the IG report for yourself: https://www.justice.gov/file/1071991/download

      An immediate result of the release of the IG report was that Strzok was thrown out of the FBI offices and stripped of his security clearance(s).

    QUOTE:

    In politics, as in life, lucky is the person with clumsy and incompetent enemies. By that measure, President Trump is the luckiest man on Earth.

    As illustrated by the growing proof of FBI bias against him and the left’s incoherent rage over his immigration policies, Trump’s political enemies these days resemble the passenger list on a ship of fools.

    Because stopping illegal immigration is popular in much of the nation, it is not surprising that an early poll finds most criticism directed at the Central American parents who risk their children’s lives by bringing them on the dangerous journey or sending them with smugglers.

    Rasmussen reports that 54 percent of likely voters said the parents are more to blame for the crisis, against 35 percent who say the government is more to blame.

    Meanwhile, the left is going in the opposite direction by uniting behind California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who turned 85 last week and is seeking another six-year term. Trying to rally the far-left base in her blue state, Feinstein ­authored a bill that would, among other things, prohibit an arrest for illegal entry anywhere within 100 miles of a border.

    Incredibly, the other 48 Senate Dems signed on, meaning they’ve all cast their lots with an outlandishly radical policy.

    Yet Feinstein and others insist they don’t favor open borders. OK, then, let’s put it this way: They favor no borders and want the US to admit the whole world, free of charge and no questions asked.

    Yeah, that’ll sell in November.”

      With respect to the blame being on the government, I can see how some might easily blame the government.
      This choice does not diminish the blame due the parents.
      If “government” had done its job years ago, we would not today have as severe a problem.
      Either choice is correct. Sufficient polls post election of PDJT show vast majority are sick of illegal immigration and want legal immigration reduced.
