          Yup! When I was a little girl about age 15 I had a pervert expose himself to me and my best friend at a basketball game, of all things. I remember, to this day, pretty much everything about it. It isn’t something you forget. We told our teacher who was at the game, she told the police, and then we told our parents. This stuff gets spread around. Come on, man. These women are liars. If my best friend hadn’t been with me, I would have told her FIRST!

        The ONLY reason this is being allowed to drag on is to increase the #walkaway numbers. Democrat voters are either gloomily silent on this or are actually speaking against this as ridiculous. The number of people in support of this obstruction are decreasing steadily.

        That said, I am starting to get concerned about this increasingly stupid behavior from the Democrats. If it isn’t pure stupidity, then what sort of plan could the uniparty have in mind here?

          There’s an executive order that is going to be challenged on the use of military tribunals to try treason cases. Trump needs SCOTUS majority before it is challenged. That’s part of the reason no prosecution or perp walks have happened yet.

    It’s time to review Ephesians 6:10-18

    10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

    18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people

        It’s MAGA. It’s Deplorable Trumper. It’s Economic populist/nationalist.

        It’s US, and we are LEGION!

        IT is NOT Democrat vs. Republican, or liberal vs. Conservative. It’s is worldwide, and it is growing.

        It is Economic Populist Nationalist, vs. Globalist Elitist tyranny, and both DO transend borders. We are in Poland, Hungary, and other Eastern European nations, that have recent experience throwing off the oppression of a tyranical elite. We are in Italy, we are in England, where they voted out such tyrany, but the barstuds refuse to follow the will of the voters.

        We are in France, probably other Western European countries, as well.
        We are in Canada, in the provinces, and in Australia, too.
        Mexico and other central and South American countries, undoubtedly have some, as well.
        We are legion, we will never submit to the tyrant of the oppressors, the elitists, whether I’m Tehren, or Brussels, or D.C.

        We may experience setbacks, but we will never be defeated, and ultimately we will prevail.

        And the U.S. will be the ‘shining city in a hill’, that leads the rest of the world, in throwing off the oppressors.

        Why? Because of American exceptionalism.

        Because our founding father’s has the foresight and wisdom to divest the power of the government as much as possible, and to put the ultimate power in WE, the PEOPLE.

    I’m sorry for reposting this. Maybe I’m just tired but how can Blasey know 3 days in advance that Kavanaugh was going to be nominated?

    I thought President Trump kept the Kavanaugh nomination secret until the last day. Kavanaugh was nominated on July 09, 2018. Why did Blasey notify her representative on July 06, 2018 regarding her concerns about nominee Kavanaugh. Blasey clearly states she notified her representative on July 06, 2018 in her letter to Feinstein regarding nominee Kavanaugh. I don’t believe the rest of the world knew Kavanaugh was the nominee until July 09, 2018? Is Blasey a mind reader or have inside info?

She may have gotten the date wrong, or thought it would be clever, like she had a jump on the competition. Just another miscalculation among many in the dirty saga. At this point there’s no reason to think any of it is going to make sense.

      Kavanaugh was on Trumps original list published during the general election. When Kennedy announced his retirement Trumps picks were quickly narrowed down to 4 candidates. One was Kavanaugh. The Democrats had a smear campaign set up to assassinate each of the 4 candidates. Actually, they have an character assassination game plan for everyone on the list. So in answer to your question, yes, you were missing something; the level of organization employed by Democrats, which is why you were confused.

    • The dems don’t leave anything to chance. In 2012 a list was published of the “likely” SC nominees if Romney was elected. Judge Kavanaugh was at the top of the list. Coincidentally, it was 2012 when Christine Ford “happened” to remember her high school trauma and reported it to her lawyer. IMO it was a just-in-case move. Then, voila, 2018 and Brett Kavanaugh is nominated to the SC and here comes Ford with her allegations.

    The POTUS / Ainsley Earhardt interview of 23 August plus the Ingraham Panel featured by Sundance on 22 September refer.

    In this interview POTUS “lets slip” (volunteers – not in answer to a question) that he appointed Chris Wray on Rosie’s advice. Why does this matter? 3 things on that……….

    1. Wray was appointed June 7 by POTUS, Mueller was appointed May 17, 3 weeks before. This means that POTUS is signalling to the world that Rosie had his trust AFTER Rosie appointed the SC. People noticed – especially Andrew McCabe. Also…..

    2. POTUS talks about interviewing Mueller for FBI director and not hiring him because conflicts in the past. Then Rosie appoint Mueller as SC next day, apparently “sticking it” to POTUS twice, by appointing a SC in first place and secondly appointing a man POTUS does not like because of past conflict. STILL POTUS takes Rosie recommendation on Wray, regardless of this DOUBLE slight??????? Then, thirdly, as to timing………………..

    3. I recall seeing/hearing somewhere that the NYT worked on the McCabe piece for some 3 weeks. If true, this is very interesting. POTUS “lets slip” that he trusted Rosie even after points 1 and 2. Why does this matter. The (almost) whole world thought Rosie was POTUS’s worst enemy, including all the Dims, RINO’s, MSM and thus the coupists. NOW (Aug23) they hear that Rosie had the confidence of POTUS to the extent that POTUS appointed Wray, meaning both Mueller and Wray owed their jobs to Rosie and that POTUS was cool with this. So, McCabe hears this, goes WTF(?) and calls his lawyer. They game out a strategy for about a week, contact the NYT and it takes another 3 weeks to produce this hit on Rosie. The timing works, and why did POTUS drop that little nugget………..mmmmm……………….?

    POTUS has brought the sting into the open to see what falls out of the tree…………………… 🙂

        🙂 I think like most here in the Treehouse, I find it hard to think of Rosie positively. He is insufferable, with his arrogance to the oversight committee, and he always appears to have this self satisfied smirk. Tough to warm to that. But the thing is, this theory that he is running a “sting” even explains these two traits, to a point.

        He seems to be swanning around DC like he knows something no one else knows, and is not very good at disguising just how superior that makes him. And re the behaviour towards the oversight questions and doc release delays – well if it is a sting, well there is no way you can let the “cat out the bag”. Of course, these things are just as readily explained by the conventional theory, that he is a ratbag traitorous coupist.

        But that is where PDJT’s interactions with Rosie point towards the “sting” theory. If this is correct, and POTUS purposefully outed the sting, we should see action soon……

    I am gobsmacked by many of the running commentaries here on the Kavenaugh bogus accusations.

    So many here rail against the infiltration of the educational system, and the MSM narrative skew, yet accept their first premises. It’s not just the youngsters but the parents who have somehow bought into their twisted logic. Ostensibly Trump supporters, but somehow bought into the illogic of the left. Some are even doing right-wing Alinsky tactics. Doh, and fail.

    The first premise is that Judge Kavenaugh has been fully vetted for his previous appointments and this one to the Supreme Court. If even an inkling that he had skeletons in the closest, (and social media would have made that easy as it does for the detractors now and their takedown) this would have stopped his nomination. It did not.

    No way, according to the current logic here, a spooked and risk adverse and weak minded GOP would have put his name forward. Another logic fail.

    This is a Left-wing, desperate, and coordinated effort spearheaded by the Lying Dems and their media wing, scorched earth policy to stop a well qualified and exemplary candidate to the Supreme Court. They have, in their suicidal way, have nothing to lose. They do however. The mid-term elections and as the President likes to say, sadly, they are bringing shame on the American people and our system of government. Americans are better than this travesty of foolishness. Don’t play. They are wrong.

      I was a follower of 4 major sports, but gradually lost interest as the corruption of professionalism eroded the ethos over time as well getting sick and tired of letting my attachment to a particular outcome determine my mood for an afternoon.

      Well, I have very recently disengaged emotionally from the Kavanaugh saga. I have noted the Lefts despicable behaviour, but I refuse to let them cause a deterioration of my physical/mental health. There is a lot of emotion in the Treehouse, for behaviour that we all must have expected. My advice, note the behaviour, calmly send out messages to your relevant DC reps outlining your expectations, then simply note the outcome and vote accordingly. It is not easy, but DO NOT GIVE THE LEFT THIS POWER OVER YOU. I have found that this works wonders.

      I’d hope by now that anyone reading would be able to realize that I’m not buying this story.

      I also don’t think the GOP is that spooked or weak spined (at least some key players aren’t) — I think they’ve figured out how to deal with the Dems.
      This isn’t just hurting the Dem attempt to not seat a SC justice (don’t think it will work) and possibly rally their base (also don’t think it will work as well as firing up their opponent’s base) but it’s going to destroy even more of their credibility methinks.

      Of the three, the only I have my doubts about is the firing up of Trump’s base: because a lot of them seem to have just decided to sit on their arses and whine if the President doesn’t do it all, do it now, and no effort from them, and/or going weak in the knees .

      It could be argued that Obama did the world a favour by beating McCain and Romney. We got here faster than otherwise. Romney would have delivered globalism without the added element of racial division and would possibly have been followed by another globalist.

            In the most extraordinary five-six minutes of Trump’s campaign speaking, President Trump explains that he knew this day would come. He knew he was going to have to run to stop the establishment from enslaving us. It was just a matter of when. He bided his time.

    “Pentagon Identifies First 2 Of Korean War Remains Recovered From North Korea”
    By WILLIAM COLE, THE HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER on September 21, 2018

    A 25th Infantry Division soldier and an Army medic whose dog tag was recovered are the first two Korean War identifications to be made from 55 sets of remains turned over to the United States by the North in July, officials said Thursday.

    One of those soldiers, Pfc. William Hoover Jones, who was 19 when he died, was part of a segregated African-American unit within the Hawaii division that suffered the effects of racial prejudice — in addition to the equipment and training shortfalls that followed the Army as a whole into Korea.

    President Donald Trump announced the identifications on Twitter, saying, “These heroes are home, they may rest in peace, and hopefully their families can have closure.”

    Master Sgt. Charles McDaniel, 32, a medic with the 8th Cavalry Regiment Medical Company, also was identified. The unit was engaged with enemy forces of the Chinese People’s Volunteer Forces southwest of Unsan in North Korea, the accounting agency said. The Indiana man was reported missing in action on Nov. 2, 1950.

    The sole military identification tag that North Korea provided with the 55 boxes of human remains belonged to McDaniel. The Army in August returned McDaniel’s corroded dog tag to his sons, Charles Jr. and Larry.

    Charles, 71, told reporters at the time he was moved to tears when he got the phone call at home in Indianapolis informing him that his father’s dog tag had been returned.

    The brothers were so young when their father was reported missing that they had little recollection of him.

    “It’s a very mixed, jumbled moment for us,” Charles said. “At least we have this,” he said of the ID tag, imprinted with the name Charles Hobert McDaniel and a service number.”

    This was interesting. Orascom’s Koryolink JV granted right to operate in North Korea

    CAIRO, Sept 23 (Reuters) – Egypt’s Orascom Investment Holdings said it has been granted an exemption from the United Nations to operate its Koryolink venture in North Korea, sending shares up to the daily trading limit.

    Last year, the U.N. Security Council agreed to tighten sanctions on North Korea, banning its textile exports and capping fuel supplies, and making it illegal for foreign companies to form commercial joint ventures with North Korean entities.

    Orascom sought an official exemption to allow it to continue to operate Koryolink, its joint venture with North Korea’s Post and Telecommunication Company, the company said in a statement.

    The group said it received notice from the Egyptian embassy in New York on Thursday that the exemption was granted but did not provide further details.

    The company’s statements sent shares in both Orascom Investment Holdings and its sister company Orascom Construction up nearly 10 percent each.

    The stock exchange had suspended the company’s shares earlier on Sunday until it responded to an inquiry about the status of its operations in North Korea.

    Orascom had said it officially “lost control” of its 75 percent stake in Koryolink in 2015. Despite the mobile network’s rapid rise, the Egyptian firm has struggled for years to repatriate its cash from Pyongyang, filings reviewed by Reuters show.

    OK, Post and Telecommunications. LOL. I wonder who will be listening?

    Creating Conflict and Destroying Community – Agent Provocateur Infiltration Part 2 of 3

    Last night, I posted part one of a long report of infiltrator tactics to destroy comment sections of conservative and Pro President Trump sites. If you missed it, here is the link:

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/09/23/september-23rd-2018-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-612/comment-page-1/#comment-6016227

    This is an important topic because as we get down to the wire for the Nov election, the infiltrators will be working overtime to disrupt, demoralize and destroy positive communication. We need to avoid falling for it.

    Yesterday in response to part one of my report, commenter cozette provided some valuable information as to some tactics used by the infiltrators. Cozette said:

    ….They seem to work in teams of from 2 to 5. They can all be run by 1 person using several accounts. Two common tactics seem to be consensus building and consensus cracking. I’ve also noted the seeding of outright lies into the information stream on comment threads. Its fascinating to watch shills throw out toxic comments to bait people into reacting in order to derail a conversation or chain of info sharing……

    Yes, destroying the community is their goal. I feel it’s professionally organized and run because they are using psychological tactics and techniques I’ve studied for years. It takes training or trained direction to function as effectively as most infiltrators do.

    Most times, the infiltrators work as teams or one person using different accounts acts like more than one person to fake consensus. When one of them post something negative, almost immediately there will be someone, or more than one person, making a supportive sub-comment. It is so obvious.

    Also, when there is a big event, such as with Kavanaugh, they will flood comment sections on all conservative sites with negative interpretations and hopelessness, e.g. Kavanaugh is finished, the Rs are weak, the Rs are betraying us, etc. At these times with a big event, the turd droppers descend and nuke the comments while the rat pill droppers flood the comments with doom and gloom. The turd droppers will be bounced but the piles of rat pills will remain in the comments slowly releasing their toxicity. Just look at all the negativity that has been generated by the Kavanaugh situation which hasn’t even reached a conclusion yet.

    These organized agents of destruction depend on feedback. They want to build on the negativity, even if it is just someone taking them to task by calling them out thereby stopping honest discourse. Ignoring them chokes off their air supply. Although it is tempting to let them have it, the fact that they want that reaction makes it important to not give it to them. I make note of these commenters and skip over them forever more totally ignoring their negative comments. You cannot reason with or counter someone who is playing a role from a script. It’s not real but their negativity IS real!

    In identifying and dealing with these agents of destruction, all you have to do is analyze what they are saying. This is a pro President Trump site where his supporters can come and share positive things about President Trump and his accomplishments. If a commenter is constantly criticizing the President or his personnel, are they REALLY supporters? TO BE CONTINUED…..

      What a great question!
      And thank you, FL_GUY, for asking it.

      We have some of those here, who are embedded like ticks.

      It you ask them this question…the one you’ve posed…they get all indignant and claim they are here to give us a “reality check”.
      Or claim that we are an “echo chamber’ or “cheerleaders”…and say that we “should criticize Trump when he screws up”.

      It’s nonsense.
      There is plenty of ‘criticism’ going on out there to give us a “reality check”, as if we needed one.

      Just because someone has ‘been here a long time’, doesn’t mean they weren’t on a mission all along.

      Our enemies are patient.
      I do not think for a minute that they wouldn’t have implanted their operatives here, some time back, as ‘sleepers’ to be activated when told to.

      And yes, ignoring them is best.
      Except that…Silence means Consent.
      Silence is often taken for ‘agreement’ with the disruptive and demoralizing statements that are made.

      So it’s good to see some push-back and defiance against the deceivers, when it happens.

      Thank you for another Great Comment, FL_GUY!
      I hope it will help people to see through the disinfo-agents who are here to spread negativity.

      I used to see the same types of comments at lucianne where I was a regular before discovering the treehouse. They intensified in clusters around the 2012 election. There was also a yuuuge amount of Sarah bashing during the 2008 election.

      In retrospect I see that Romney in 2012 would have continued globalization, but I also see much evidence that there was heavy-duty fixing of that election, voter fraud, media complicity, deep state machinations – ALL the same stuff they tried on Donald J Trump. They had to make sure that the Obammunist got his second term, to continue the destruction he started in the first 4 years.

      Some of the same user names from lucianne popped up over here not long after Sundance’s brilliant analysis of the FISA scandal started getting attention. I noted them mentally at the time – now wish I had noted more carefully!

            McCabe et al did not cotton on until 3 weeks ago, and only because POTUS “leaked” it in the Ainsley Earhardt interview. We figured it out cause we were looking for anomalies as tells, cause nothing made sense until we spotted them.

President Trump nominates his Cabinet, they in turn pick their staff. PT expects, and rightly so, for Cabinet members to vet their own and hire MAGA folks. RR was a JS failure. POTUS cannot be expected to hire EACH employee in EVERY department!
          The one thing that McCarthy did shed light on was RR motivation. Initially RR thought he would get Dem support for writing the Comey firing letter because he thought they hated him too. When that backfired on him, he tried to get back into their good graces by going along with McCabe(Comey) and appointed Mueller. RR is definitely Blackhat Swamp, always has been, another JS failure.

    send in the clowns….this week we will see all sorts of carnival freaks in an never ending sideshow in DC….protest of all sorts …all geared to play to the media….
    every thing will be thrown perhaps even the kitchen sink at the SC pick….
    anything to stop Prez Trumps efforts to MAGA…
    war is an ugly thing ..but do not look away..learn from it…use common sense…be fearless and make a stand….think for yourself…..
    each day the evil and bad news gets covered …but do not fool yourself each day also good folk are doing kind and wonderful things….it just does not get covered by the fake news.

    Things worth fighting for never come easy…..take a stand

      Good article!

      Personally, I am hoping to see some retro-designs coming out of our American Auto Factories.

      Cars with some heavy metal protection for passengers…like the autos of old.
      Instead of the little lightweight cars that crumple up like a tin can in an accident.

      We have lots of oil and gas…and gas prices will be coming down when those new refineries come on line.

    This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name—and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building—against these last-minute allegations.” – Judge Brett Kavanaugh
