  1. Deplorable_Infidel says:

    For those that want to get together and make some plans with like-minded individuals (since actions speak louder than words), here is your chance:

    The Joy of Being Together


    We as conservatives, share the same beliefs. We are Christian, Jewish, or spiritual. We trust Donald Trump; we fight pedophilia, we want to see a great America and a great Europe with all its sovereign nations. We fight Communism, cherish the country, family, flag and the anthem. We don’t kneel for the anthem!

    We want each other grow, we want freedom for each other, and we love. We have everything pleasant to be together. Where can we find a trip that we share so many things like this with all the guests?

    And this is not all. Two-Three hours of our each day program will be a workshop. Our first trip “Victorious November” is from Nov 23-30 is the #War workshop and regarding what happened with Judge Kavanaugh, our approach needs to take an aggressive shift and will focus on the strategies that each one of us can work on and our action plan during and after the trip. After these daily two-three focus hours we can still bring up the issues while we have our fun programs, but we won’t be on our Pcs. Those who are not interested in our workshops and need to relax, can follow their plans and just ignore us for those hours. We will be together again right after.

    It is incredible how some of Trump supporters are well educated and well mannered, and it is sad that some of these good people are alone or can’t find a place worthy enough to share their mind.

    Just a thought. Anybody think right now it’s possible Hillary and Bill are being black mailed for the money that was donated to them charity/speeches.

    From other countries you get our money back or else, we’re going to drop some bombs on you. They seem awefully desperate now days. Book tours, Traveling speeches etc.

    Just a thought? She didn’t think she would lose.. Took millions upon millions, I’m sure a few of those people want their money back seeing the bargain didn’t hold up.

      I was wondering myself what Bill’s motivation on this tour was.
      He had it made; if he could have had a third term in the White House immediately following his second, he certainly would have.
      Post Bush, he was definitely still supportive of his wife’s goal of obtaining the presidency.
      After Barack Obama, I could see that the fire had gone out of him.
      He was doing work, some of it good work, over in Africa, as much as he could handle. He had plenty of money. He seemed content with the idea of spending as much time as possible with the grandkids.
      Hilary’s stubborn insistence on making another run ended up trashing his legacy.
      I don’t see what he gains in doing this.
      What you are saying is a very plausible scenario.

      I think they need the money. They have an expensive life style and no-one is financing it anymore.


      • lurker2 says:

        I’m in total agreement with you. After Hillary lost the election the big donors probably weren’t interested in funneling money into the Clinton Foundation any more. None of the Clintons hold political office now so their influence is greatly diminished. However, if Bill or Hillary still have security clearances and access to briefings they could sell classified info to make money. They are phenomenally greedy.

        You know a recess appoint would end immediately when the next next (not a typo) Congress takes over, not worth the effort just about ever for a Judge. In fact it would be detrimental as the Ds might take over then they would get to make the lifetime appointment; that is why I think it is a bad tatic.

        Article II, Section 2, Clause 3, prescribes the power:
        “The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.”

        Eisenhower, was pointed out to me by a lurker, in an email gave 3 SC Justices recess appointments, then the Senate Judiciary Committee made a statement that they would not confirm any more after the fact appointments. I will have to see why Ike made them.

        Presser in Lansing noted a recent pole D.S @ 51% and J.J. @ 42. That is 9, he is up over D.S. w/ Independents, and only @ 18% saturation w/ GOP voters. If he gets all GOP-er’s aboard is this an even money race(?), I’d say so. PDJT brings a 5 point bounce when he comes to a state, so the question begs, when will POTUS go to MI again. Add some good performances in the debates, Candidate James has no place to go but up IMHO. This would be a big pick up in the Senate.Note, this rally coming up is in Pontiac, which is Oakland County, and what I want to know is what are John James’s numbers in Macomb County, the swing district that was home of the Trumpocrats and the Reagan Democrats.Wish I could make the rally, I can’t, in attendance will be Don Jr. Kimberly Gilfoyle, Kid Rock and John James.

        Maybe soon Kayne West can join them 😉

            Tough road for him to go, but he is out there working his ))) off. He a good candidate has the people skills, his campaign is a little rough, not so sure of his extemporaneous speaking (he seemed a little stale in an interview I saw, but that was inexperience I am sure); will watch that debate as he is an interesting strong man. It would be an fantastic pick up for the Republicans if he won. Very glad to see Don Jr helping him, it clearly is winnable. 9 points in a poll for a challenger 30 days away is doable.

        Unfortunately, the Dimm hack who has been in office forever has been very active on air with commercials. John James has finally started to air commercials, but he is not really identifying as a GOP and a Pro Trumper on the ads I have seen. I can’t figure out his campaign strategy. I voted for him in my absentee ballot yesterday, but I was way more optimistic about him winning 6 months ago than I am now. His opponent is awash with money and she is spending it.

      This man has been on the road every day, criss-crossing the state and getting in front of real voters. Unlike Stab-a-cow, who only cozies up to the establishment flunkies in Detroit, New York, and DC.

      Eric Trump was with him campaigning earlier this week……but yes, the exposure level has been low due to the crooked MSM. They refuse to give him air time.

      Michigan IS in play. I hope the President can please, please, please find some time in his schedule to help John make it over the fence.

    Florida Vote-by-Mail Data

    ♦ Republicans – 47.1%
    ♦ Democrats – 34.5%
    ♦ Margin (+12.6% for Republicans)

    Updated: 10/11 Latest Florida Early Mail Voting 14,517 (+6,401 from 10/10) more registered Republicans have returned an Early Mail-in-Ballot as of 10/11 (+12.6% Lead down from 15.1% on 10/10 {-2.5%})

    Voted-by-Mail Provided (Not Yet Returned)

    ♦ Rep: 1,066,392 (down -14,792 from 10/10)

    Other: 14,947 (down -48 from 10/10)

    Total Returned: 2,802,598 (down -23,010 from 10/10)

    ♦ (Rep): 38.1% (down -0.2% from 10/10)
    ♦ (Dem): 41.5% (down -0.1% from 10/230)
    Other: 0.5% ( same from 10/10)

    Other: 0.7% (same from 10/10)
    No Party Affiliation: 17.7% (Up +0.4% from 10/30)

    As a Registered Voter in the State of Florida, you are given the option to have your ballot sent by mail for 2 Election Cycles. The reason I point this out is that there will be voters in Florida that will not vote in the upcoming Election that are provided a ballot by mail. That is why the Returned Vote-by-Mail Data is so important and should be what you focus on.

    You can find the data I provided at the link below. If you are interested in a certain County, that data is also provided.

        That’s why she’s such a nitwit. But she’s young and stupid. Trump might have said something like this: “well, she’s young and influenced by her peer group. But if she really looked into it, into freedom of artistic expression and who really supports it, she’d have to be a republican. She should ask herself — if she decided to take a view or write a song unpopular with her current peers, what would they do? Would they celebrate her individuality and free expression? I don’t think so.”

      “‘The Music Modernization Act closes loopholes in our digital royalties laws to ensure that songwriters, artists and producers receive fair payment for licensing of music,’ Trump said just before signing the law. ‘I’ve been reading about this for many years and never thought I’d be involved in it, but I got involved in it. They were treated very unfairly. They’re not going to be treated unfairly anymore….’

      Soul legend Sam Moore of Sam & Dave noted that the legislation has been a long time coming. ‘With Mr. Bush we couldn’t get it done. When Mr. Obama was in we couldn’t get it done. But we got it done with this man,’ the ‘Soul Man’ singer said in brief remarks….

      Another component of the bill, the Classics Act, will finally make sure that artists with pre-1972 records will receive master recording performance royalties; while a third component codifies a process by which SoundExchange can pay producers and engineers the royalties accorded to them by their agreements with artists….”

    This President is simply awesome. God is sure working his wonders.

    The amount of work that this President does in one day is just jaw dropping. He makes every modern day President before him look lazy. Some of them had 8 years in office and what the heck did they have to show for it? President Trump has been there for around 2 years and he has accomplished more in that short time, than some President’s have achieved in 8 years.

    In addition he is slowly demolishing the left in a way that only he could do. No other Republican could do this. It requires an intellect and fighting spirit that few posses. It is resulting in a split in minorities with the Democrats, and exposing, actually unmasking the Dems for the far left goons they are. He is literally placing them in a position to show the world just how insane they are. I don’t think that even they believed they would ever have to reveal themselves in quite this way, and hoped to keep it hidden, or at least their true intentions.

    It is stunning what we are seeing unfold here, and if I was to make a prediction. I firmly believe, that the Republicans will hold the house and expand their power in the senate. Polling indicates movement in this direction and the horror of what the Dems perpetrated with the Kavanaugh confirmation has given the Republicans an enthusiasm that could well be off the charts by the mid term elections.

    The fake polls will be issued to imply the opposite, they will try their usual bag of tricks, but they have awoken a sleeping giant, and this will be no normal mid term. This one will buck the trend, and after the mid terms, and assuming I am reading this right, and the Republicans hold the house and senate, the gloves will come off, and the hammer will come down. It will be the previous two years on steroids, what President Trump will achieve in domestic and foreign policy as well as destroying the opposition, will be breath taking.

    We are still in the early days of MAGA, what comes next, will make your head spin, and the media and Dems will continue to implode.

  40. Jeff Carlson and Dan Bongino seem to have figured out what was the initial narrative used in paragraph one of the FISA report and links it to a Glenn Simpson article written in 2007 when he worked for WSJ.

    In other words—they recycled a decade old report to create a Trump/Russia collusion narrative claiming that a Trump Tower server was using back-channels to communicate with Russia. The problem for the FBI is that even the NYTimes debunked that story—and that is a major reason why the FBI is fighting so hard to keep the FISA reports from being declassified.

    To top it off, Glenn Simpson’s 2007 article has so many similarities with the current Fake narrative—to include names like Paul Manafort and Oleg Deripaska—the article was obviously recycled to form the basis of the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.

    They never expected Trump to win—so it got even crazier from there when they realized their potential exposure. The FBI then had to create other narratives to explain the FISA report—Papadapolous, Carter, Downer, etc….

    They will never be able to bury this. Of course, POTUS must already know this. Rosenstein is under control.

    Bongino gives the details…MUST LISTEN!
