      Once more I come to know of thee, King Harry,
      If for thy ransom thou wilt now compound,
      Before thy most assured overthrow:
      For certainly thou art so near the gulf,
      Thou needs must be englutted. Besides, in mercy,
      The constable desires thee thou wilt mind
      Thy followers of repentance; that their souls
      May make a peaceful and a sweet retire
      From off these fields, where, wretches, their poor bodies
      Must lie and fester.

      Who hath sent thee now?

      The Constable of France.

      I pray thee, bear my former answer back:
      Bid them achieve me and then sell my bones.
      Good God! why should they mock poor fellows thus?
      The man that once did sell the lion’s skin
      While the beast lived, was killed with hunting him.
      Let me speak proudly: tell the constable
      We are but warriors for the working-day;
      Our gayness and our gilt are all besmirch’d
      With rainy marching in the painful field;
      There’s not a piece of feather in our host–
      Good argument, I hope, we will not fly–
      And time hath worn us into slovenry:
      But, by the mass, our hearts are in the trim;
      And my poor soldiers tell me, yet ere night
      They’ll be in fresher robes, or they will pluck
      The gay new coats o’er the French soldiers’ heads
      And turn them out of service. If they do this,–
      As, if God please, they shall,–my ransom then
      Will soon be levied. Herald, save thou thy labour;
      Come thou no more for ransom, gentle herald:
      They shall have none, I swear, but these my joints;
      Which if they have as I will leave ’em them,
      Shall yield them little, tell the constable.

        I’ve always thought that President Trump could be compared to Henry V of England and other great English monarchs, such as Henry II and King Alfred the Great. But to me, the one with whom he has most in common, in sagacity, situation and stature, would be Queen Elizabeth I. Queen Elizabeth was a ginger, survived many domestic plots and conspiracies and fought off threats from other countries. The Elizabethan era was also a time of expansion in trade, navigation and exploration, and the foundation of England’s greatness as a nation in the modern era.

        Great quote from the bard.

    This should be fun! The WHORES will be all in on trying to stop the Kavanaugh hearings. That is the reason you had what occurred yesterday. The know that their base is going to be destroyed in two weeks once he is confirmed.

    They ALL realize their days are numbered! All they have left is the November Election. Each and everyday more and more data is being released that shows this Blue Wave theory is just that. Look what is happening in the State of Florida. Unheard of when you look historically at Early Voting.

    Look what happened to the Rasmussen Generic Ballot when they switched from Registered Voters to Likely Voters.

    Don’t allow the WHORES to get you down! WE ARE KICKING ASS!

    I love how the press goes right to: screw Hawaii, screw Mollie.

    Love the illogical inference: If the president used his own $$ to finance his own campaign – then isn’t ALL HIS MONEY CAMPAIGN.

    Really getting beyond fed up with this. I’m pretty confident that all VSGPDJT’s shots at Sessions are to provide him “cover”, because we all know if DJT was that disappointed in someones performance, he would tell them YOU’RE FIRED.

    And I know, TIMING IS EVERYTHING. I’m pretty good at 3D chess – even though DJT is playing 6D+ right now. There are a lot of moving pieces, and we ARE WINNING on many fronts (none of which actually get any airtime from MSM).

    ANY moves against the “demon left”,. are going to be seen as RETRIBUTION anyways – so it’s REALLY TIME for the perp walks to begin. I’m getting tired of having to shove my hands in my pockets, to prevent myself from becoming an “unlicensed oral surgeon”, and doing “multiple simultaneous tooth extractions” without anesthesia.

    Sadder still, I do IT for attorneys office – and most of them DON’T GET that the 2 (supposed) crimes that Cohen plead to – ARE NOT ACTUALLY CRIMES.

      Also the point that if POTUS gave the campaign $60 million, it would be stupid to have the campaign pay personal expenses, just give less $ to the campaign. You don’t give & take with the same hand unless you are a Leftist. Then any manner of nonsense seems like wisdom.

    I’m genuinely trying to understand why some people think Trump committed a crime by paying Stormy Daniels. Anyone able to explain the other side’s thinking on this issue?

    I saw John Roberts in this press conference allude to the notion that since Trump paid for so much of his own campaign expenses that any payments he made must therefore be connected with the campaign. Doesn’t make sense to me, but I’m trying to understand the other side’s view.

      You wrote: I’m genuinely trying to understand why some people think Trump committed a crime by paying Stormy Daniels…..

      Actually, in these deranged people’s minds, the “crime” that President Trump committed was stopping HilLIARy from stealing a bought and paid for election. They had already distributed the “HilLIARy State Wins list” to the media which is why they delayed calling those critical states for Trump.

      Like petulant children, they continue to stomp their feet and shout insults to the WINNER of the game they thought was totally rigged for HilLIARy.

      I have every confidence that when the time is right, on his own terms, President Trump is going to destroy every one of them! We are impatient at the lack of speed but remember, IKE caught hell for not invading W Europe for several years. Ike knew that he had to prepare the battlefield first by attrition of the enemy. It took 3 years before the Normandy invasion but when it happened, it was successful because the Nazis had been diminished over time.

      President Trump IS the BOSS and he will prevail. I trust him. God is guiding him just like God guided George Washington who faced similar challenges in his day. God Bless President Trump!

    I hope we all remember “sticks and stones.” Sarah sure does and since she is intelligent and can think she can run circles around the thick-brained ones. I pity them for their stupidity and single-mindedness (if one can even call it that — probably more like programmed-mindedness). They have been raised and trained not to be able to think or feel — imagine how painful and depressing this is when they are alone (especially at night) with their souls.

    Sarah is the fortunate one — and she has a great father.Mike and mother Janet.

            “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with BROIDED hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array.” ( 1 Timothy 1:1 Ephesians 2:9 )
            It also says, “women should be keepers at home” so if you want to make a biblical defense of my comment, you have to take ALL the verses, or none.

            Now before you kitties start sharpening your claws some more, 1. I never said Sarah should stay home 2. I stated an opinion about her having her wardrobe bumped up by a professional. “Clothes make the man,” they also make the woman, especially in the workplace. I stand by the comment AND how it was worded.

            Excuse me now. I have to go strangle her cat so you actually WILL have something to defend. Sheesh!


            • I can see you didn’t like the push back but it was an odd suggestion at best.

              Sarah is always neat and in well tailored outfits, well groomed. I think its incongruous to suggest that she be dressed to look professional by some arbiter of fashion. The suggestion is demeaning and sexist.

              Sarah’s demeanor and her amazing grace under fire clothe her more beautifully than any outfit chosen to impress. Leave Sarah’s clothes be a reflection of her good sense and leave others, who choose to dress for attention, to their frivolity.

You’d think it was ALL OVER!!! Oy! Anyway, all I managed the past 24 hours was a short dose of Levin and a short dose of Rush and a bit larger dose of the rally and I feel GREAT!

    Now that all said, how’s everyone else feeling? Are you ticked off now or what? This is such an obvious attack on everyone and anyone even closely connected to Trump in order to do everything to take him down, but more importantly, make his base feel deflated, flip the congress and just make everything he tries to do miserable.

    But look at him. He’s not deflated. He’s not giving up. Heck, he’s laughing it up as seen in literally one of his most hilarious tweets of his presidency. Based. Boss. Savage as the kids say.

    This is why I love Donald J. Trump. Honestly, he is my hero and, next to my dad, I admire him more than any other person I’ve known. I wish I could personally thank him, Melania and the rest of his family and close supporters who have given up so much for US. That’s what I answer people when they ask me how I can support President Trump. I tell them – I don’t support HIM – HE supports me!

What struck me is how so many of the questions are asking Sarah about how the POTUS feels or thinks…questions which are meaningless and she certainly doesn’t know or should know…how does one know how the President feels? I mean the questions are so simple and meaningless…anyway, that is probably why I was able to watch the whole thing as nothing really went on except Sarah doing her usual excellent job. And, btw, I think she looks good in black.

      Excellent observation. The presstitutes’ vapid questions glaringly illustrate the dumbed-down, low-bar, limited intellect they and most of their readers must have. We are witnessing the fruits of American education, both primary and college level.

      A recent article in American Thinker briefly but succinctly addresses the crisis in our education system caused by the Left’s near-complete domination of academia. The author ranks the education problem as #2 out of 10. That’s pretty serious.

      A 1992 article The Decline of American Journalism in National Review (June, 1993) was classic and if it was updated to include the crap that has happened since then, it would be half again or possibly twice as long. Education has played a significant role in producing the low-IQ snark weasels sitting in the WH Press Conference Room.

      • That’s a good article. What I was thinking, is that most of these questions are feminine in nature (and I am a woman so I can’t be called a sexist,I don’t think. They are all very touchy/feely in nature. They don’t ask for facts, they ask for opinions, the opinions of the Press Secretary? Very strange, imo. I guess i doesn’t matter what the facts are anymore, since what the press writes has no relationship to that. You would think the male reporters would be embarrassed, but since Obama, being a female in men’s clothing is normal.

          Haven’t linked this for a while- why it’s all about the FEELZ and how to combat it:


        • I think, Littleflower, that the pressitudes don’t ask the questions for the answer.

          They ask them so they can insinuate that the President is (lying, rewarding people that praise him, punishing those that question him, etc). They are using those questions to paint a picture of President Trump that is the most damaging they can manage. They want to sully his brand with their words. That’s why they spend so long drawing a picture with their words even for a straightforward question, using repetition to drive home POTUS supposed incompetence & venality.

          That is why Sarah has started calling out the questions as ridiculous, saying the administration doesn’t agree with your premise, pushing back and turning their insinuations back on them or on past administrations or the Dems. They seek to defeat him with a thousand small cuts, sow doubt in the minds of his supporters. That’s what swamp critters do.

    The jackals smell Trumpian blood and their hearts are racing with great hope and vengeance. With a Justice System blinded in one eye only, they have good reason to be hopeful. Their good eye is focused entirely on Trump and his associates while the other blind eye sees nothing. But it’s not totally one sided as Trump has recused Jeff Sessions and the invisible Huber on his side.

    Here are a few of the People and “nothing burger” issues that the MSM find excruciatingly boring and cause them to nod off to sleep:

    —The DNC/Hillary funded, foreign composed, Fake Dossier that was undeniably intended to damage POTUS before and after the election.

    —The following “personnel matters” that are being dealt with by HR:

    –The indictment of James Wolfe “for one petty incidence” of lying to the FBI but no charges for allegedly leaking classified info to damage POTUS before and after the election.

    –Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr’s and Nellie Ohr’s alleged close relationship with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele etc. to damage POTUS before and after the election.

    –Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and other’s alleged actions as high level FBI and DOJ officials that were intended to damage POTUS before and after the election.

    –Sen Feinstein’s Chinese spygate

    Perhaps the non Trump stories that make the MSM most sleepy are reports of Americans murdered by illegal aliens.
