  1. I’m sure all of you have read this old article, but I just discovered it, and absolutely LOVE it! If anyone ever says Trump isn’t focused like a laser on a long term goal, send them to this.
    1984 The Expanding Empire of Donald Trump – William E. Geist

      Fascinating article/only 37 years old in 1984. –

      “IT IS NOT YET 9 AM SPENDING A DAY WITH Donald Trump is like driving a Ferrari without the windshield. It’s exhilarating.”

      Reminds me that we are having the ride of our lives
      with PDJT and to think it is just the beginning/SO LUCKY.

    • He says that his concern for nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.

      His greatest dream is to personally do something about the problem and, characteristically, Donald Trump thinks he has an answer to nuclear armament: Let him negotiate arms agreements – he who can talk people into selling $100 million properties to him for $13 million. Negotiations is an art, he says and I have a gift for it.

      The idea that he would ever be allowed to got into a room alone and negotiate for the United States, let alone be successful in disarming the world, seems the naive musing of an optimistic, deluded young man who has never lost at anything he has tried. But he believes that through years of making his views known and through supporting candidates who share his views, it could someday happen.

        No, but we are still being lied to and severely undermined by them. They still control the Deep State and Congress. And with a very few exceptions they still control the overwhelming majority of the US news media.

        So while we enjoy reading accurate relatively bias-free information here in CTH, the vast majority of our population do not. Stupid and badly misinformed people are still everywhere. They control much of corporate America, Silicon Valley, the entertainment industry, academia, and the news industry.

        Thank God for President Trump and some of his staff, but as a country and culture we have a long long way to go.

        Reading it now. Must admit I like Katie Hopkins better then Piers Morgan

        presidential M&Ms complete with Donald Trump’s signature on the back.—– I want one!!!!

        Piers doing dumb things like trying to ‘play with the phones’…. too much filler…and BS. I want an interview not his opinions and little jabs here in there. Oh the tape. Trump likes to brags…

        Example:

        I’ve known Trump for 12 years now and genuinely like him whilst disagreeing with many of the things he says and does.—- Why is this important?!?!?!

        That day, the Secret Service detail was just eight agents. Today, President Trump has over 300.— Wow

        I couldn’t resist stopping at the top, turning and waving. I was later told this is technically a breach of protocol – only the President is supposed to ever do it.—- oh look breach of protocol I’m sure CNN will get right on that…

        ‘Some of them are protesting in my favour, you know that?’ he insisted. ‘There are many, many protests in my favour.’
        Hmmm. I must have missed those.—— I really hate Piers Morgan. What the heck does this have to do with the interview.

        I guess he’s blind

        Great to see you,’ Trump said, as we shook hands again. ‘Now get off my plane! – we’re late!’—– That’s our Trump MAGA

        The crew and I grabbed our stuff and raced out the back of Air Force One, past the White House Corps – knocking some of their pre-packed meals as we did so. They get charged $20 per meal apparently.—– LOLOLOLOLOL

      That picture is everything you need to know about Donald Trump. He knows most things in life are hard to get, and even harder to keep. He knows if you are incapable of defending what is yours, you will lose it to someone more determined. He takes that position as our President, in defense of our country. It’s amazing, and long overdue.

          TatonkaWoman, the one reason why is to exploit the market which America represents. Not just to the cartels but to all the illegals, America is a market and it is to be exploited. They do not care about some silly assimilation bullcrap. They flit seamlessly to and fro across the border.*

          What they want, all they want, is access to the market. To the cartel it is the drug market and control of distribution. To the illegals it is the benefits of the market, the ‘free’ this, the ‘free’ that. America is like a giant ATM to them.

          I’ve lived in California since the 1970s. I have watched and studied and observed. I have seen what the drug operators did in the ’70s (which was a more dangerous time until the last few years), what the politicians in Mexico, and Central America and our own country have done, and what the illegals have been doing.

          The politicians in those other countries are pushing the illegals into the USA. Meanwhile our politicians are welcoming them, sucking them in like a Hoover. People can say the illegals are merely pawns caught up in the political graft of their respective countries but that is not entirely true. It is they who ultimately make the choice to come. They are as complicit as the politicians. The commies (leftists) want the political base, the Rs are yellow bellied cowards. In either case they are hellbent to extinguish the middle class. Just look at stagnant wages in time of record profits as proof. Our so-called representatives hardly bother to return calls or letters, e-mails, etc. What they want is a complete lack of accountability, that’s their pie in the sky.

          Anyway, this is more than you asked. What you asked for is explained as America is open for business to any grifter that comes along. That’s right, the illegals are running their own con game. They want your tax monies. And they are getting it, they have better than even chance of getting it for ‘free’. Incidentally, it is not too much hyperbole to say the CA state symbol is a teenage female illegal with two kids and one in the oven.

          With the increase of MS-13 into the USA, our country is now becoming as dangerous as it was in the 1970s.

          *It is not at all unusual that an illegal working in the USA is back at work three days at most after having been deported by ICE. Very likely they will not deport the illegal for when he is deported he will change his identity and if he was being surveilled (a very good chance of that since they often are active in narcotics distribution) and the agency will have to start all over again. And the illegal will boast of how he was fed and treated very well, as if it were a vacation.

          Apprehensions by ICE is largely the ‘raw meat’ at the border. They are not too active in the interior with the massive number of illegals already established here. There are 3rd even 4th generation illegals living here. Imagine 50, 60 year old and older not knowing English or even how to read or write. This is not only Southern California. I have traveled to many states and the locals tell the same tale.

          Wowsah. Couldn’t load this when it was first posted. What is it with the O admin and Iran? What are the odds of so many of them being linked to the Islamicist régime?

          Is the Muh Russia a blind for Muh Iran? Which is probably in fact Muh USSR. I’ve read many of the docs from the Congress whatever it was, and it’s striking how many of the things they decided to do to bring us down, eg spread sedition amongst Black Americans, have come to fruition.

          I don’t think O needed to be blackmailed. He is naturally on their side. But the relationship was prolly the same as China and Lil Kim.

          Back in 1979, age 16 or 17, I saw the footage of Iran, and my blood ran cold. I knew this rising of Islam was very bad for us, and would endanger, very probably destroy our way of life. This came to fruition with 9/11 for you and The 2nd Gates of Vienna for us.

          It has already in Europe. I used to go and sit at the cafe next to the Louvre bookshop under the Carousel pyramid and then take in the Philippe-Auguste fortifications on my way home. I literally wouldn’t know where to go to find them today. The last time I went 20 years ago, there were about three bag searches and hours of queue. I’m guessing the bookshop had to move. And the cafe is probably a distant memory.

          I thought we were a gonner, and no shots fired.

          Then came Brexit and Trump. I truly believe T has the capacity to break the Islamicist Gordian knot and save our bacon. I haven’t felt so hopeful in years.

          I can’t be prouder and frankly surprised at the strength of our institutions. We ARE doing this through the ballot box.

Wictor goes through his father’s past and Strzok’s ascension in the FBI. Add that to the fact that he has failed TWO polygraphs and still has a job to his over-the-top arrogance, it all makes a sick kind of sense.

      Maybe not so much what we don’t know — but what we do know and they don’t want the Russians called on it.
      The Russians work all sides in many elections (not just ours). Their goal is to create chaos, corruption (that they can blackmail and bribe), and above all else to sow seeds of distrust within a society. This is how they manage to get governments to fall, and then they take advantage of that.
      This is also how, in spite all of their cleverness and schemes, they get caught up. (ps. don’t think for one second this helps the average Russian: it would be better if their government plotted domination games less and worked to better their own country more — but then Russian elites have never been kind nor considerate to their people).
      I’m sure they’ve got all manner of dirt on everybody, every party in our political system — and we may have hold of all of their dirt (or at least enough of it). So if we call Putin out…will he drop some dimes? Especially if we have some information that he does not??(remember back not long ago when Iran was threatening this very thing if the sanctions were put into place, and there was an interesting flurry of activity from John Kerry)

    Looking beyond Strozk and the corruption at the FBI and DOJ there’s light at the end of tunnel. That light is President Trump’s two Supreme Court nominations and hopefully at least two more. With the Supreme Court in Conservative control the Leftist ability to legislate a progressive agenda through Lawfare will abruptly cease.

      You are so right! It is not just the Supreme Court that our President is transforming, it is every Federal Court in the USA 🇺🇸. Hat is just as if not even more important. I wrote this the other day:

      Our President is changing every single Circuit Court. 22 appointed Appellate Judges so far with another 2 next week.

      District Courts are also being changed in record numbers. Two SC Justices. When the time is right people like Rosenstein and Wray will be thrown out and real MAGA folks will assume those roles. He needs this November Election to bring in another 6 to 8 MAGA Republicans. Mitch, Lindsey and others will be up for reelection in 2020. They won’t mess with our President’s nominations.

      As a matter of fact, Ole Turtle 🐢 is loving that his legacy will forever be tied to the SC selections by our President and the transformation of the Federal Courts. He decided to piss on the Democrats yesterday with this tweet:

      Look what happens when we transform the Courts with real Conservatives!

      From the article linked above:

      A fiercely contested bill to make residency a condition of voting in New Hampshire was determined by the state Supreme Court to be constitutional Thursday, in a major ruling that clears its approval by Gov. Chris Sununu.

      In a 3-2 ruling, the court found that the bill, House Bill 1264, is not a burden on the right to vote, but rather a means to better organize state laws “in order to place voters and residents on equal footing as New Hampshire citizens.”

      On that program, the Howie Carr Show, Sununu gave the clearest picture of his feelings on the bill.

      “So what I did is I’ve taken that bill, I’ve sent it to the Supreme Court, I say, ‘Give us your opinion on it,’ ” he said in an interview June 20. “So that assuming they come back and it’s affirmative and they assure that it’s constitutional, we can sign the bill with I think great confidence that we’re protecting the integrity of the system, we haven’t violated any constitutional rights, and finally New Hampshire’s laws are kind of up to par with everybody else.”

      I have my grandfather’s WWI Purple Heart which he was awarded for his service in France where he spent months in a hospital and was severely injured, almost died but for his buddy going back for him in the trenches and lived with a physical disability his lifetime.

      What a mockery Cohen has made of such service and of the Purple Heart and what is stands for.

      He is a very low level person, imo, and does not deserve to serve as a district’s representative nor in my Congress where he votes on bills for all Americans. May we target his defeat and honor all our servicemen/women and send a clear message that we will not accept nor put up with his sick views.

    President Trump recently met the Queen of England and he did not bow down to her. He respectfully shook her hand. The Twitter outrage mob attacked the US President calling him vulgar and disrespectful. They are wrong.

    Obama enjoyed humiliating America. That’s why he genuflected to anyone and everyone. That aside, American presidents should bow to NO ONE. Especially royalty.

    We fought a revolutionary war to avoid doing it.

    Unfortunately, too many Americans continue to pay homage to the toffee-nosed British royalty and remain transfixed by a so-called superior caste of human. Recently a royal wedding took place in England and they spent millions of dollars stripped from their ‘subjects’ to do it. Many Americans gushed. I refused to give it one second of my attention.

    Aragorn earned his throne through leadership and his willingness to put his life on the line. He earned it by merit. Today’s ‘royal people’ have simply won the genetic lottery. They inherited their rings of power.

    They are not superior to us—especially in the morality department.

        If I may tack my thoughts on to here, Trump is a Scot. There is nothing that he values more than truth, loyalty, and as Mel Gibson so plainly said it, FREEDOM!!
        Lolz! Love the LotR/RotK meme.
        I saw the video yesterday when Trump outwalked the queen. I’m wondering if, when he stopped to admire the troops, that was his polite way of waiting for her to catch up without embarrassing himself or her.
        Rumor has it that none of the other Royals, particularly Charles or William, wanted to meet the Trumps. I hope that rumor is incorrect.
        Just as Billy Graham was our Methuselah, heralding the end of an Era for the United States, I think that, when Queen Elizabeth II passes, drastic changes will happen within the monarchy Which will affect Charles and William the most.
        I also think that it’s hilarious, in my humble opinion, that because Trump has recognized Israel and moved the US embassy, it forced a British royal to visit Israel/Jerusalem for the first time in living memory.
        Lastly, Meghan Markel reminds me of the mermaid who fell in love with a prince. She gave up everything to walk on dry land with him. The price she paid was that each step was excruciating, like treading on the sharp points of knives. Sigh! It is painful to watch MM struggle, literally like a fish out of water. I wish that she and Harry could escape all the pomp and circumstance and go be themselves somewhere else.

      The House of Windsor came into being in 1917, when the name was adopted as the British Royal Family’s official name by a proclamation of King George V, replacing the historic name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. It remains the family name of the current Royal Family.

      Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel; later The Prince Consort; 26 August 1819 – 14 December 1861) was the husband of Queen Victoria of Great Britain and Ireland. He was born in the Saxon duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. At the age of 20 he married his first cousin, Queen Victoria, with whom he would ultimately have nine children.

      The royal family are of German descent. Is it any wonder that now they acquiese to the German ruled EU, and fail utterly to defend and promote Brexit? Brexit is the will of the peasantry, not of the royalty.

    What ever happened to the Montgomery Mass Surveillance Case?
    As I have written in this Newsmax blog and elsewhere particularly of late, my client, former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery, holds the keys to disproving the false claims of those representatives and senators on the House and Senate intelligence committees, reportedly as well as FBI Director James Comey, that there is no evidence that the president and his men were wiretapped.

    Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of which is classified, and sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama’s former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.

      Obama was the exception, not the rule. Leaders of countries are on equal footing. American presidents have never bowed to royalty…until Obama. Americans don’t bow or curtsy to foreign sovereigns, because we are not their subject. Bowing is submission (fealty) to the authority of the person who sits on the throne. Subject v. citizen

      The Japanese bow to one another as a sign of respect, not submission, so following that custom isn’t the same as bowing to royalty. Apparently Eisenhower did some bowing to ladies, priests, the Pope and Charles De Gaulle, for some unknown reason, but again, none was the single-person royal sovereign power/figurehead of a foreign country to whom anyone pledges fealty. Cultural custom v. submission/fealty.

      U.S. protocol has always been no bowing to royals. Feudal-loving liberal-regressives are sadly just stupid.

            This is perhaps the stupidest of all leftist agendas, and the one which will boomerang significantly once Islam has the demographics to exert great power in western cities, as we have now seen with London’s Sadiq Khan.

            Despite being portrayed as a victim group by the left, Islam is the absolute negation of everything that western liberalism stands for.

            They are against women’s liberation, they despise homosexuals, they despise social degeneracy …….wait……I’ll let that go…..

            They don’t look favorably upon non-Muslims, they are super patriarchal, and they aren’t out protesting terror attacks in western countries caused by their own people.

      Why has nothing has been done regarding this referral made three months ago? Why isn’t Congress demanding the DOJ explain their inaction?

      Well let’s see about this. If a grand jury heard evidence but declined to send up an indictment we wouldn’t know of this ever ( theoretically ). If a grand jury was even seated for this purpose, or an existing permanent grand jury was reused we wouldn’t know of this ever ( theoretically ). If a US Attorney even presented a case to a grand jury we wouldn’t know of this ever ( theoretically ). If a grand jury heard evidence and did vote to send up an indictment we still wouldn’t know of this until it was unsealed. In every case we’re not supposed to know anything – until we’re supposed to know!. [ This is because of that innocent until proven guilty mantra the Framers stuck in the Constitutional Amendments to elevate the USA above the quick justice alternatives enjoyed in the rest of the world ]. But you knew this I’m sure.

      Not much we can do unfortunately. I guess this is where we all separate. Commenters suffering from battered victim syndrome immediately jump to the pessimistic conclusion that DoJ has back-burnered the referral or ignored it completely. I guess that is possible considering the discretion of the decision makers. Their reasoning might be that even though they might get an indictment from a grand jury ( usually majority vote ) they believe the criminal trial will be futile ( unanimous vote of O.J. jurors pulled from the District of criminals who voted 93% for Cankles and quite possibly are employees of FedGov in some manner ) especially if the perp hires a dream team of leftist sharks and makes a spectacle of the thing. What would you do? Run a case anyway? A not guilty verdict would be an embarrassment. Like it or not, it is a consideration.

      What is unfair is to jump to the conclusion that DoJ is covering up, or incompetent, or lawless based on this alleged inactivity on the referral. That is childish and classic low-info scapegoating to assuage one’s terminal pessimism. What can you do? Not much. But to make yourself feel better you can vent to the right people, but doing it here is ludicrous because they won’t ever see it, and you merely spread your misery to others ( pessimism is like panic, it can infect those around you, which may be your intent, I don’t know ). Here they are if you are interested …

        You are correct to note what I call the Menendez Problem. It is impossible to empanel a jury in a blue jurisdiction that does not include at least one die-hard Democrat who would never, ever vote to convict a Democrat, no matter how damning the evidence.

        “What is unfair is to jump to the conclusion that DoJ is covering up, or incompetent, or lawless based on this alleged inactivity on the referral.”

        I base my conclusion on what I have heard from Rosy and Wray, the IG executive summary, and their failure to release documents. We still do not know what started the IC investigation on PDT. Sure looks like an obvious cover up. The institution is being protected. Mcabe not charged Strzok being protected by FBI lawyers. I have lost all faith in the DOJ and FBI and I doubt it will ever be restored. Transparency on what happened would be a step in the right direction.

        For an example of easily provable crimes which have yet to be prosecuted, Congress’ April 18, 2018 criminal referral cites the February 2018 Justice Department Inspector General’s report documenting McCabe’s transgressions. This report was made public on April 13, 2018.

        Congress cited the following violations:
        18 U.S.C. § 242 – deprivation of rights under color of law
        18 U.S.C. § 1001 – concealment, false representations
        18 U.S.C. §§ 1505, 1515(b) – obstruction – making false or misleading statements, or withholding, concealing, altering, or destroying a document or other information
        18 U.S.C. § 1621 – perjury

        Would a grand jury need five months, or three months, to confirm the veracity of the Inspector General’s report and whether it supports Congress’ charges? It shouldn’t even take thirty minutes.

        As for your paragraph two et seq, it is gratuitous character assassination and condescension unworthy of a response.

          For an example of easily provable crimes which have yet to be prosecuted

          In the criminal trial that word does not mean what you think it means. Provable beyond a reasonable doubt requires reasonable people in the jury box. Be honest, how much luck have you had recently convincing Obamatards or Clintontards to come over to our side and accept and cheer President Trump? That is who will populate the jury pool. Have you ever talked to these ‘tards? We’ve had 3 years to perfect our arguments to them, can you now say you have a perfect argument that would convince 12 of them to convict one of their fellow travelers? Whether they admit it or not, jury nullification is the default among the enemy. Even a videotape of the perp would not be enough in a jurisdiction made up of 93% leftist scum.

          It is very difficult to obtain justice in the District of Criminals or any leftist controlled enclave. In the criminal trial you have a leftist judge appointed by leftist politicians ( or elected by leftist citizens ), you have a dream team of usually leftist defense attorneys, you have a jury populated by leftists ( the rare non-leftist is likely hard at work in his day job and not available for jury duty, or got stricken during jury selection by the leftist sharks ). Then you have the prosecutor, a US Attorney or underling whose heart may not exactly be MAGA by our standards.

          Another concern is what happens before and during the criminal trial. In discovery and later, evidence is disclosed and presented. Now we have to deal with real and bogus national security concerns and believe me, the government errs on the side of the government, that is to say over-classification is the norm and criminals go free rather expose something perfectly harmless. They take the easy path, not the right path. The defense team will exploit this by demanding stuff far beyond what is needed and will throw the trial into chaos. That’s one more thing for the prosecutors to worry about.

          Finally, notwithstanding that referral, are we sure we even have hard evidence at all? Just because Congress critters with dusty law degrees are playing Perry Mason doesn’t guarantee it. These perps are not all stupid despite believing Hillary would win. Hillary destroyed devices and evidence on purpose, as did Lois Lerner. I’m sure many others did as well. Like it or not they have all learned from Nixon’s 18 minute tape gap and figure that was a good plan. They had almost 10 weeks between election and inauguration to get their ducks in a row, and much longer to hide the early FISA/Steele/Fusion and other stuff we do not know. If the enemy left any evidence then perhaps we’ll nail them.

          All these things are considerations for the prosecutors, i.e., the government, aka We The People. We may not like it but they do have to decide whether or not to proceed based on all these real concerns. The prohibitive financial cost of a trial ( or re-trial after a mistrial ) may be used as a scapegoat, but behind the scenes the decision to proceed or not has more considerations than mere money.

          The truth is, *We The People* as plaintiffs cannot get a fair trial! It will take extraordinary effort to obtain justice. The enemy knows this and exploits it. If you think you know the magic formula to bypass the reality on the ground in the District of Criminals, pass it along to them. I posted some of their contact information upthread ( or downthread, I can’t remember ). But there is no point handwringing about it. What will happen, will happen. Its pretty much on autopilot now. What evidence they did not destroy will be found. Prosecutors will proceed based on what they find. All the considerations listed above ( and more ) will be weighed. Events will unfold as they were destined and meant to.

    This is a very interesting speech by Sen. Rubio. I know he is an object of derision here, so I was very surprised how clear and focussed he was.

    There seems to be this weird new belief that indictments are written then sealed for many months for no good reason. Unless there is a good reason (like locating an accused of no definite address) indictments are served soon after being written. Perps sought out and arrested (or voluntarily turn themselves in after being contacted)

    If justice worked as slow as some comfort themselves in thinking…. indictments sealed and left to mature for many months… then many perps may well die of old age and never face justice.

        There are some indictments that may remain sealed for a very long time.
        please remember how the Trump administration fought to retain FISA! It is certainly conceivable based on known probable cause, ( unlike the faked evidence in the phony dossier) that Mueller and every one of his attorneys, HRC, her family’s and foundation, the entire Obama administration, all Obama hires currently working for the Federal Government and no longer employed, and Obama himself are ALL under FISA court

      Under the false claims act. a private-party whistleblower may bring an action to recover money paid by the government as a result of fraud. The action is filed under seal, without notifying the defendant, and the government is given 60 days to decide whether to take the lead in the case. 31 U.S.C. § 3730(b) (“Actions by private persons.”)

      Yes, some posters like to dwell on the negative and when it’s pointed out to them, they respond with more negativity. Constantly looking for negative aspects of things is no way to be successful.

      President Trump spent many years attending the church of the father of positive thinking, Norman Vincent Peale. It’s clear that President Trump practices the power of positive thinking. Although it may come as a shock to the avowed pessimist, positive thinking works. It’s not mysterious or complicated. Action follows thought. If you believe you can’t do something, you will never do it because you won’t give it a serious try. If you really believe you can do something, eventually you WILL do it. It’s a combination of faith, deeds and persistence. President Trump is the greatest role model for positive thinking in action I’ve ever seen.

      When President Trump gives a rally, no matter how serious the topics, he uplifts the people attending. President Trump inspires people to greatness. President Trump gives people hope. People leave a President Trump rally uplifted and inspired. IMHO, that is one of the great aspects of the power of positive thinking.

      I appreciate the posters who take the time to post about positive things that are going on. It doesn’t mean the negative things are being ignored.

      For myself, I trust President Trump knows more about what is happening than we ever will because what we hear is only a fraction of what is really going on and cherry picked nuggets to boot. I believe President Trump has created a plan to deal with the traitors and I trust him to do it on his terms and schedule because he has the data to deal with it properly. In this really messy situation the traitors have created for the USA, the Revolutionary War command “Do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes” is very applicable. President Trump will give the Fire at Will command when the time is right. I’d personally like it to be sooner rather than later but it will happen when the time is right for maximum effectiveness.
