    Interesting to see this interview that President Trump gave just after the press conference and before social media and the liberal corporate media blew up post conference.

      Hannity and Dobbs appear to be the only talking heads who are supportive of the President’s press conference comments and the result of the summit meeting. I do not recall such consternation and anger among his opponents since election night. It must really suck to be them.

        I can’t listen to Hannity.. he gets to me… but I’ll speak to your comment because Lou Dobbs was awesome tonight. He gets it. I loved how Lou pushed back with Rollins and the NY Post guy. Also the later segment with Simone and other guy were very good, but too short! Both of them agreed with Lou.

        Scott Adams had a good periscope today after the presser, and he had good insight. I am totally watching a different movie than what I’ve heard today.. I liked the presser and thought the President handled himself well. He triggered some folks and got the Awan server stuff into fray.. something DC and the press have been desperately trying to ignore. And the good question… ” Where’s the server? “. That was genius.

          So proud of the Trump-Putin Summit and glimmer of world peace.

              • That wasn’t it. HE was looking to have Moore respond with some fiery rhetoric against the scurrilous attacks. Hannity knew that Trump cannot have milquetoast people of good character who lack the fire and charisma to bring in more people. Sessions and Moore and Sheriff Arpaio all have wonderful conservative history, but none of them are front line warriors.

                Trump and Hannity talk all the time and so Hannity would have known Trump’s reservations about Moore’s drawing power. When I watched that interview with Moore I could see Hannity HOPING that Moore would fire back some salvos that would shut up the thuggish media and politicians. Hannity’s disappointment and frustration were visible to me and likely to others. He had said quite a few good things about Moore on radio shows prior to the television appearance. I was quite the news junkie in that period and so I didn’t have just a one off seeing that television show. Hannity had hoped for Moore to show a warrior side.

              Hannity is necessary and like most people we all meet in life, you take the good with a little annoying character flaws. I do believe when Hannity is interviewing someone he doesn’t respect or someone he thinks knows less than he does, he does not handle himself as well as he could or should.
              He sure as heck isn’t going to talk down or interrupt the President, especially DJT.

              Does anyone remember how the MSM used to treat a TV interview of Obama. It was as if God was speaking. The world stopped and everyone had praise for what a wonderful speaker he was until most of us figured out the teleprompter. LOL

            Hannity was literally hired to play the Tom Grunick character from Broadcast News, knowing he wasn’t bright enough to do other than what he was told(to read).

            I’ve heard hannity on radio say he was a small government libertarian in one breath and in the very next say he wanted 9 new supermax prisons built to lock up pot smokers. However being stupid like hannity doesn’t make you evil, it just makes you not very bright.

            When it comes to Russia/Putin Hannidiot listens to his bestest little pal, the shrill little Levin who tells anyone who will listen just how bad Russia and Putin are, apparently because they won’t bow down to Israel, Levins only real cause, well that and shilling for goldman sachs.

          • There is not one thing that you said that is accurate. Hannity gets along with NOBODY else in the FOX studio and he is no fan of Murdoch.

            Perhaps if you’d actually listened to him – with as much tolerance as you have for your egregiously acid attitude – you might discover that a person’s style might not be to your liking, but the substance is worth attending.

            And as always, NOBODY covered the government allowed murder of Terry Schiavo, starved and dehydrated in a way that no animal lover would ever permit towards an animal,…except for Sean. Because of his coverage a new pro life group was formed by Terry’s family and her brother has become a hero for the pro life (whether pre born or at threat of euthanasia).

            And the 20th century, especially the first part was FULL of GED educated people who rose to the top and who would knock the oh so specially educated elites on there as_es!

      • Pres Putin threw a flaming bomb into the room when he made the comments regarding the missing $400 million that went to the Clinton Foundation. Quite a few people are speculating that Pres Trump has “something on Pres Putin” to be able to get him to do that. I disagree. Pres Putin has said, if anyone has been listening to him the past 18 months, that he resents being labeled the “bad guy” from the American election. IMO he is letting the enemedia and Clinton know that he’s not going to put up with it any more and he’s going to start naming names and amounts. It was those comments today that caused the enemedia to go bonkers. They were broadcasting live when he said it and it came as a response from a “reporter”. No putting the genie back into the bottle there.

The deep state tried everything in their power, including issuing the fake Russian indictments on Friday, to prevent Trump and Putin from meeting knowing they would speak directly to the people regarding accusations that countered the coordinated narrative (4 am talking points). Loved that Putin lobbed a $400M bombshell against crooked Hillary. I believe President Trump set the stage to now justify declassifying everything. Boom.

      • What really sucks, in their view, is that President Trump is openly expressing skepticism about the “intelligence assessment” that is the only thing allowing them to justify their attempted coup against him. Everyone needs to know that the intelligence community, in the specific persons of Brennan, Clapper and Comey, were the authors of that “assessment”, and it is a lie — THEIR lie. Their frothing against the President amounts to that old line, “methinks thou dost protest too much”, or as Sundance’s other article today says, it is just the collective response of the co-conspirators.

      What our President and President Putin are doing for PM Netanyahu and Israel 🇮🇱 is really magical! The Mullahs aren’t able to eat today. Their days are truly numbered. Russia 🇷🇺 is going all in when it comes to Israel 🇮🇱 and their right to defend themselves. The Iranians are getting the CRAP 💩 beat out of them in Syria 🇸🇾 every single day by the Israelis. They have the blessing of our President and President Putin.

      Not sure how many of you are aware of the following:

      Russia 🇷🇺 has met twice since June with Israel 🇮🇱. They assured PM Netanyahu that they will not sell their s-300 anti aircraft missiles to Iran 🇮🇷. They also said that Israel 🇮🇱 can continue to do what it has to in order to get Iran out of Syria 🇸🇾.

      Russia was one of the 5 that agreed to the Iran Deal. They are showing through their actions that they will not fight the USA 🇺🇸 for walking away and implementing sanctions.

      The June meeting!

      http://www.businessinsider.com/after-netanyahu-met-putin-russia-halts-s-300-missile-defense-to-syria-2018-5

      From the article linked above:

      Russia is not in talks with the Syrian government about supplying advanced S-300 ground-to-air missiles and does not think they are needed, reportedly.

      The news follows a visit to Moscow by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week, who has been lobbying Putin hard not to transfer the missiles.

      Israel has made repeated efforts to persuade Moscow not to sell the S-300s to Syria, as it fears this would hinder its aerial capabilities against arms shipments to Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah.

      The meeting last week:

      http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-russia-israel-putin-netanyahu-20180711-story.html

      From the article linked above:

      On Sunday, Netanyahu told his Cabinet he planned to underscore two basic principles of Israeli policy at his meeting with Putin.

      “First, we will not tolerate the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies anywhere in Syria — not close to the border and not far away from it,” he said, according to a statement from his office.

      “Second, we will demand that Syria, and the Syrian military, strictly uphold the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement,” a deal that set out a demilitarized zone along their frontier and limited the number of forces each side can deploy within 15 miles of the zone.

      The 3 European countries can’t say a word against us bailing and putting severe sanctions on Iran. They tried very quietly to see what our President would say. They got their answer today and won’t say a word come tomorrow given Russia’s stance on Iran!

      From the article linked above:

      The United States rejected appeals from the European Union to give exemptions to EU countries that would be affected by sanctions on Iran.

      In a letter to EU officials, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the US government wants to maximize pressure against Iran as sanctions begin to be imposed next month.

      This man is the go to guy on all things pertaining to Iran 🇮🇷! Here is what he had to say today:

        Many, many Jewish people immigrated from Russia to Israel. And many Jdws still live in Russia and are not oppressed at all by the Russian government.

        Also Putin has met with and supported Israel for years without issues.
        Russia is not our enemy.

        The military industrial complex developed during World War II needed to survive and to do that they needed an enemy. They chose Russia. And have made trillions from it.

        Regarding the press conference. The swamp tried to set our President up.
        First it was a meeting between the two most powerful countries in the world.

        The swamp wanted it to be a “cat fight” over election meddling. Our President did not fall for it. If he would have, this would have re-validated Mueller’s investigation and may have even implied complicity by our President from Mueller’s point of view.

        It is a big nothing burger. The President stayed the truth and had a good press conference.

        If you don’t believe it, watch it. It was nothing like the MSM portrayed.

              The important thing here is that both the USA and Russian are nuclear powers. Our country must remain open to conversation and meetings with them. This has happened since time began.
              Perhaps Trump was just too close to the one who knows the truth and the whole truth today and their heads and minds freaked out.

          Coats said in a statement. “We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security.”

          Coats’ statement came hours after Trump stood next to Vladimir Putin at a news conference in Helsinki and accepted the Russian president’s denials of interference in the U.S. election.

          “My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me, some others, they said they think it’s Russia,” Trump said at the news conference. “I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

          We lived in Indiana when Coats was the senator from there. He always struck me as being establishment even then. I was kind of surprised when President Trump chose him but thought maybe the President didn’t have a lot of options from which to choose.

            PDJT’s genious is in OODA Loop, (observing, orienting, deciding and acting). He does this with all his advisors. Coats is a barometer and will either be gone shortly, or kept only as a deepstate barometer.

      There has been no evidence of “hacking” ever made public… I suspect there is none. The pivot to “meddling” is deliberately vague so that the public will still THINK it means hacking (and likely involving Trump), whereas the “meddling” is the usual stuff that everybody concedes all countries do (even USA).

      Trump is right to NOT go along with the “Russia meddled” narrative…. unless some actual REAL evidence is presented… and tested in court of law. Putin has called Mueller’s bluff on that.. as well as the trial underway of Concord Management… which when I last looked was NOT going well for Mueller. He has NOT been forthcoming with actual real evidence even now the case is in Court.

        All Hannity-isms considered, I give him a B+. He kept his interruptions to a minimum (there were a few), was respectful in that, and asked some good questions.

        Aside: I REEEEALLY get the sense that there are a TON of questions that Hannity wants to ask, but the “timing” isn’t right and he just won’t go there without POTUS’ “ok”. If true, that means there is a lot PDJT doesn’t want revealed yet, which in turn would be direct evidence that there is a grand plan unfolding and PDJT has ’em right where he wants ’em.

        I continue to believe….for good reasons….that the dims/Deep State/Uniparty/Globalists are backed into a corner from which they cannot escape, and time is on PDJT’s side.

        FACT: Polls show more and more people are getting “woke” to the Mueller witch hunt, and the details behind same. A majority of American now think it is exactly that….a politically motivated witch hunt. Time, therefore, is NOT on the Deep States’ side.

        Am I alone in seeing this?

        We’re 18 months into the Mueller investigation, and it’s looking more and more pathetic by the day. Even Never-Trumpers are beginning to cross the aisle., to say nothing of the #WalkAway movement underway.

    Great interview.

    Many good things in here. I think may favorite may have been, however, when Trump said something like “Tucker gets it” and Tucker Carlson, off camera, could be heard laughing.

    The Lion is unruffled by the faux brouhaha of the left and its media.

    The best part of all of these attacks and set ups — Muh Russia, Charlottesville, Family Separation, Muh Putin Summit — is that they are forcing Trump and his team to get better and better. Like an organism being put through a rigorous evolutionary process only to emerge stronger.

    In the end, this will make Trump even more formidable than he is today. Same with the people around him. It’s not fair, what has happened, but you only get better as you fight through the attacks.

    One example of this improvement: Trump is not going to the baseball All Star Game tomorrow in DC. He’d only be booed. He knows it. And Trump has not awarded any medals for like the humanities or something. Cant recall the exact thing. From a NYT article in the last few days.

    Trump is avoiding these things to not give his opponents a platform. If the NFL guys want to take shots at you, don’t invite them to the White House. Same with the NBA. Same with not go to the baseball All Star Game. Same with not give artists medals who might refuse them.

    Trump is POTUS. No one else is. And he is learning, more every day, how to wield that power and position in a way that maximizes his prestige and leverage and minimizes the prestige and leverage of his opponents.

    Been one heck of a learning curve. Imagine this was the first 1.5 years you spent in elected office? lol. A lesser being would have been crushed by now.

    Good work by Hannity. Eager to see the Tucker interview, and really glad that Bill Shine was hired as Comm Director.

    Trump needs people he can trust around him, Shine and Hannity fit that bill. It’s a bunker environment, for now, and that means you only want “foxhole” people to watch your back.

Newt has just made himself as relevant as Karl Rove or any of the National Review bunch. Can you imagine being stuck on a boat with them for a week on one of their annual cruises?

    P45 could take a two year vacation now and would still be easily the greatest POTUS of my lifetime. And he makes it look so easy. Wow!

    The meeting with POTUS & Putin was just themselves and 2 translators…will not having a written transcript help or hurt? Or did they record the meeting to be transcribed afterwards?

    Trump’s alleged “high crimes and misdemeanors” and treason is not saying exactly what sourpuss Brennan, Dem Schiff, Dossier McCain, CNN and MSNBC anchors and other deranged or faux outraged lefty operatives wanted him to say. He hasn’t given anything away to Putin.

    It is illogical to expect Trump to jump joyously jump on the Mueller bandwagon indictments when Mueller has been hounding him and his admin officials at will and indicted Trump’s “brief” NSA Director Flynn for allegedly lying to the discredited Comey FBI about something that wasn’t illegal; for raiding his personal attorney Cohen’s home, office and hotel room looking for dirt; indicting Papadopoulos who was confronted by “entrapment spies” and indicted for “making false statements and omissions” and no other crimes. Then there’s the FISA surveillance of Carter Page and prolonged attempts to ruin his life and on and on.

    This was a co-ordinated set up. Rosenstein and Mueller’s indictment timing was a deliberate dirty political trick and the organized Resistance was prepared to condemn Trump no matter what he said or did. He might have prepared a better answer to the “gotcha” question but it isn’t worthy of the latest outrage.

    I shouldn’t be, but I am surprised at how quickly some FNC on air personalities are attacking or condemning Trump.

      I dropped Cavuto several years ago but he is being widely quoted as saying Trump’s performance was disgusting or something like that. Hmmm. I’ve found about the only semi-safe spot on Fox is Fox & Friends in the early morning .. the 6:00 to 7:00 hour is usually solid. After that it starts going off the rails and I switch to FBN to check the ridiculous markets. Then no more Fox until Lou Dobbs at 7:00 and as much Carlson as my nerves can take. Usually a little more screaming than my nerves need after 8 pm. LOL

    This to me was an important interview, the President named names. You can tell he’s got the swamp sighted in by all of the Swamp gas throughout the chattering class. It was a great interview and to me is the harbinger for what’s to come. The President is getting ready to start swinging his battle ax.

    MAGA!

  23. While the “for TV” interview was benign, and necessarily so- I suspect that behind the scenes action was intense.

    Russia is still weak from the Soviet Era depreciation of everything but misery and laziness. Their economy needs the world’s biggest market (Us for those in the Media) to prosper. Putin’s favor toward Bibi was a surprise, but further consideration causes me to conclude that Putin does what’s best for Russia. Alliance with Israel (for now) serves Russia well.

    This is a complex business, folks. Statecraft with the overall backdrop of “We are America Bitchez” is new to most of us under 90 years old. President Trump is cutting new roads- actually superhighways into the world for America’s sake.

    Additionally the idea that these 2 superpowers would have a meeting on life or death issues ON TV is ABSURD!!!! How effing stupid do the American Bolsheviks think we are anyway?

    The collective avalanche of BS is nearly overwhelming. Thank God for the Last Refuge!

  24. Jim Comey was on Browder’s Board of Directors at HSBC. The company’s press release is linked announcing the appointment.

    Six months later, Comey resigns from HSBC to become Director of the FBI.

    Putin said yesterday that Bill Browder made a $400,000 contribution to the Hillary Clinton Campaign for President.

    Campaign contributions from non-American companies or persons are illegal.

    Browder grew up with Hillary Clinton in Chicago. Their fathers knew each other too.

    Videos of Putin’s remarks and Browder’s arrest on Russian television are linked in the post too.
