    George Soros continues to seditiously fund anti-Trump conflict, protests, and leftist violence.

    I used his baggy eye as the theme of this cartoon, based on a familiar “The Lord of The Rings” metaphor, the eye of Sauron.

    Excerpt:
    They know he is a Trump ally in favor of restoring equal justice under the Constitution. Deep State lawbreakers such as Obama, Hillary, Brennan, and many others could be facing tribunals.

    For far too long the Deep State ‘Big Club’ has been able to conduct illegal operations including drug running, money laundering, graft and outright treason by means of controlling government power. Obama himself made sure his politicized Department of Justice and FBI rammed through a fake dossier so that he and Hillary could conduct spy operations on the Trump campaign. They used the ‘Russia collusion’ lie to deflect attention away from their own scandals, which are myriad.

    To be sure, the Deep State encompasses more than Democrats—many Republicans in…

      The quote that if you’re not a liberal in your youth you have no heart is based on a lie. I have never been a liberal and I don’t mean to brag I have a very soft heart. So what gives? The answer is Jesus Christ. For that matter, the answer is always Jesus Christ.

      The lie is earthly lacking acknowledgement of Christ. The soft heart is also of Christ. My homage is firstly unto Christ Jesus.

      If anyone should think that is easy for you to say but you don’t know my life and the troubles I have had. I will answer that I will slap my trials on the table and match yours one for one. Friend, it is you who have no idea of what I have been through. I do believe that most people, after hearing of mine, would say no thanks and gladly stick with their own. Actually, more than a few have told me as much. Yet I stand because of Christ Jesus.

      It is because of His grace that I do boast of my sufferings. The glory and honor is to Christ alone.

      Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities. For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
      2 Corinthians 12:5-9

        Reflecting 4am on Kenya’s visit to the WH I realized that he was speaking to his people in the inner City.
        He began telling about void of father. Most kids are estranged from their father.
        He spoke about about the head how it makes him feel. Many inner City kids join a gang and have clot color that binds them in a group and make them feel strong.

        One can almost take any talking point it was laced with symbolism.
        Kanye is very bright. The talk he gave was not for us. POTUS understood.

The leftist prejudice against those who genuinely suffer from incredibly disabling illnesses is astonishingly strong. Utterly devoid of enlightenment, leftists are as crude as the dark ages they pine to recreate, wiping out progress as they strut their ignorance in lockstep with the worst elements of intolerance and destruction.

      Every day leftist provocations are spinning out a wealth of reasons to a wider and wider swath of the voting public to cast filthy leaders of the evil spawn out of office. It will be a great pleasure and immense relief to see them gone, it can’t happen soon enough.

      In no way do I want to make a value judgment of whatever has happened to Mr. Khashoggi. Let’s remember this. The challenge in Saudi Arabia has been for generations, to bring a population that wants to live in the ninth century into the modern world. MBS has taken some small steps in that direction. I don’t know Mr. Khashoggi’s politics. But look how immediately this became entwined with US arms sales. 30 years ago, Mr. Khashoggi’s first cousin was the largest arms dealer on the planet.

They mistook, too, the people of Middle America. They were a peaceable people but an earnest people, and they would fight, too. They were not going to let this country be destroyed without a mighty effort to save it. Besides, where were your men and appliances of war to contend against them? Middle Americans had and could use both, you could hardly even pick up and fire a BB-gun You rushed into war with one of the most powerful, ingeniously mechanical, and determined people on Earth — right at your doors. You were bound to fail. Only in your hate and propaganda were you prepared for war. In all else you were totally unprepared, with an evil cause to start with. At first you would make some headway, but as your limited resources and even more limited courage began to fail, , your cause would begin to wane. If your people would have but stopped and thought, they would have seen in the end that they would surely fail.

        To some extent, the left is trying to provoke such responses — using words to incite actions they can point at to then justify their words.

        I think it is more effective to ignore and mock the left and leave them hanging and let people see how nutty they are. Not follow the script they lay out and make it real.

        There would need to be years of left-wing violence, bombings and assassinations not handled properly by law enforcement to warrant civilian response. Not “tweets” from pathetic losers like Holder or Hillary, though their communications appear within people’s homes and seem a direct affront in that sense.

        The more they communicate, the more they expose themselves. Let them talk so people will know them mad. Don’t fulfill them. That will likely mean “sucking it up” for some time to come through some outrageous insanities not yet imagined.

      We need to be careful not to conflate Black Lives Matter -or any predominantly black group-with today’s SJW/Antifa mobs. Black Lives Matter was created by the Obama administration. It’s leaders travelled to wherever crisis could be found. With the help of the media, they whipped up the very real emotions of predominantly black communities. The speaker in the above video mentions the mass shooting of 5 cops in Baton Rouge a few years ago. That shooter travelled to Baton Rouge from another state-he wasn’t a local.

      For the most part, BLM and the Black Panthers have been quiet since PDJT took office. During the general election of 2016, leaders of the Black Panthers as well as the Nation of Islam softened their views toward Candidate Trump. Even Farrakhan took his policy proposals into consideration.

      The SJW mobs of today may hate authority (cops) and they may include a few blacks but most of them are white. Their cause -or lack thereof-is probably retarded and silly from the perspective of most black people. Look at them closely. We don’t see too many black people wearing pink hats or Antifa gear in the name of transgenders, pro-choice abortion, the #metoo movement, amnesty/open borders, etc.

      Like the rest of us, black Americans want equal justice under the law. There is corruption at every level of our justice system-not just the top. We DO need prison reforms. POTUS and the MAGA agenda has opened up some real opportunities for blacks and whites to communicate and unite. We don’t need to alienate blacks with rhetoric that automatically places them into the opposition camps. Just my opinion.

      Other than this, I agree with the content of the video.

        If McCabe is more than the weasel he seems he will have his book published no matter the FBI. Could it be he has already been personally threatened? Can we expect bodies?

    There is an excellent video at BitChute (free speech supporting alternative to youtube) by Tim Poole, but I can’t get the video to embed here. It’s just under 15 minutes long and pretty darned positive for conservatives. Here is the URL

    https://www.bitchute. com/video/Pum1sSi1cQDX/

    I put in two spaces after the word bitchute in hopes that the URL will appear so anyone interested can find the video. It’s titled, “Study Shows Conservatives Outnumber Progressives 3 to 1.”

    Tim’s description underneath the vid:

    “New Study Is Bad News For Progressive Activists as it shows 80% of Americans think political correctness is a problem. It shows that progressive activists only make up 8% of the country but conservatives make up 25%.

    Even more interesting for those focused on social justice and diversity is that the “politically disengaged” group actually shares its values and concerns with conservatives. This probably explains why media companies and politicians that chase social justice and progressive issues don’t do that well.”

    Finally, here is a link to the study Tim is referencing in his video:

    https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5a70a7c3010027736a22740f/t/5bbcea6b7817f7bf7342b718/1539107467397/hidden_tribes_report-2.pdf

      Only 8% are in the progressive activist “wing”, the report suggests. And 25% in the conservative wing.

      Yet the country seems split basically 50/50.

      Now would the fact that the progressives dominate Hollywood, the MSM and Social Media have anything to do with that, do you think?

      If the truth of where the progressives want to take us could reach the 26% of politically disengaged, then we would have close to two thirds of the country behind us.

      IMO even “liberal” judges won’t sling mud at Kavanaugh lightly, they know they could very easily be subject to bogus charges themselves, it’s not hard for enemies to do. Rather likely it will be handled expeditiously and quietly.

    by 2022, they will have decided that there’s no way to beat Trump, but at least he can only serve 8 years. After that acquiescence, the sorrow we put them through when the MAGA party wins, after Trump, will be the sweetest victory.

    Trump, Declassification, and Leverage
    By Mark Wauck 10/10/18 (excerpts + sundance HIGH FIVE)

    “There’s a reason why President Trump has not unilaterally declassified the documents exposing perfidy against him: leverage.

    But Sundance spells out very specifically where the greatest risk – and therefore the greatest leverage – lies: ………

    There are many other players, in addition to Rosenstein, who are at serious risk. But from the perspective of leverage, Rosenstein is the key because he created the special counsel part of the hoax and because – as a result of A.G. Sessions’s recusal – he remains in charge of the special counsel operation. Rosenstein can exercise as much or as little control over Mueller as he wants. Trump’s threat of declassification of the “origination material” gives Trump complete leverage over Rosenstein and therefore over Mueller.

    Trump’s leverage ensures that Rosenstein will very much want to restrain Mueller. If Rosenstein wants to restrain Mueller, Mueller will be restrained. This may explain why we are now seeing key members of Mueller’s team leaving and returning to their old jobs. The importance of this is that Mueller has posed the greatest threat to the Trump administration, the greatest annoyance. That threat is now defanged for the immediate future. If Mueller steps out of line, boom! Declassification. By putting declassification on hold, Trump maintains his leverage. And Congress continues to investigate and slowly reveal the truth.

    The benefits of this leverage via threat-of-declassification extend well beyond the Russia hoax to other practical political matters. I believe we saw that at play in the Kavanaugh nomination battle. Rod Rosenstein, as DAG, directly supervises the FBI director, Christopher Wray. To say the FBI acted with alacrity and efficiency in exposing the machinations behind the accusations leveled at Kavanaugh would be an understatement. But consider: Sundance himself was distinctly alarmist during the Kavanaugh hearings, alleging a plot of Deep State FBI-DOJ insiders to torpedo the nomination. As we’ve seen, however, exactly the opposite occurred. The FBI leaped to Kavanaugh’s defense, and I attribute that to Trump’s leverage over the DOJ-FBI through Rosenstein. …..

    Let’s turn to that global perspective now.

    Justin Raimondo at Anti-War.com has a blog post up that complements Sundance’s “leverage” perspective quite nicely: “The Final Truth of Russia-gate: As the hoax unravels, the real story of ‘foreign collusion’ comes out.” Raimondo focuses on the role of foreign “allies” in the plot against Trump. As on the domestic front, there were multiple players: Australia, Ukraine, Estonia, Israel. The key player was undoubtedly the U.K. Without massive intelligence involvement by the U.K., the entire Russia hoax would likely never have gotten off the ground. Here, Raimondo encapsulates that involvement sufficiently for our purposes (much more could be said):

    This entire episode has Her Majesty’s Secret Service’s fingerprints all over it…..

    Leverage, anyone? Declassification would expose all these foreign players, but the heaviest hit by far would be against the U.K. and its Australian poodle. And so we learn that “key allies” “begged” Trump not to declassify that “origination material.” Raimondo notes:

    Trump’s decision to walk back his announcement that the key Russia-gate intelligence would be declassified tells us almost as much as if he’d tweeted it out, unredacted. For what it tells us is that public knowledge of the contents would constitute a major break in relations with at least one key ally.

    Yes, Trump smoked them out and got them begging for mercy, as reported by the major media in all too transparent detail. Trump ends up with all the leverage he needs over “Her Majesty’s Government” for as long as that leverage is useful.

    Well played, Mr. President!”

      In business there was a tenet I held to which was to give a man enough rope to hang himself. It seems the president is doing the same. But let’s not over inflate the leverage he has vis a vis FISA, et al. I see an executive officer, President Trump, trying to regain some leverage against those who hold great leverage. Namely, the recusal of the indolent AG Sessions.

      So the president is at once wanting to extract from his opponents as much as possible and to create infighting amongst themselves. His thrusts and parries are themselves parried. Will he succeed? Past performance suggests he will. Will it be soon? Well, other than following the mid-terms who can tell when. There is also the crumbling of his foe, which even if it does not accelerate will certainly be prior to 2020. But what will occur in the mean time?

      I reckon more names will surface but the walls will remain. Even Sundance has not a crystal ball to foresee. So we watch and we wait. But in the meantime…it is the meanwhile which captures my attention. The thing is, there is plenty enough rope and those misfits, as they are wont to do, will continue as to their likeness. That should be their comeuppance. I look to what will transpire in the meanwhile. New names and new faces will spring forth. I love it when they self-identify.

    This my third post about the fate and repression of Christianity North Korea. The first two did not elicit much interest, though it should.

    It was reported His Porcine Majesty wants to invite the Pope to NK. It is not the first time this was mooted. According to high-level defector, Thae Yong-ho’s memoirs (a must read), They were mulling inviting Pope John Paul II in 1991, but changed their minds as it was thought it might reinvigorate the last generation of ‘Jerusalem of the East’ cohort. Of course now those Christians have either one foot in the grave or are no more (RIP).

    For a history of why Pyongyang was called the ‘Jerusalem of the East’, here is a good article:
    http://www.hrnkinsider.org/2018/04/remember-jerusalem-of-east.html

    It should be read with this report on what has happened since, and how things stand now.
    https://www.nknews.org/2013/09/north-koreas-irreconcilable-relationship-with-christianity/

    My third post rounds it out of what NK Christians face with eye witness and victims testimony. As sundance has often said, do not look away.

      I finished reading “Back to the Jerusalem of The East” recently. Billy Graham’s wife, Ruth, was educated in one of the missionary schools in Pyongyang in her teens and trully loved the people. So the Graham family has connections to NK.

      Kim il Sung’s father was actually a minister in the NK underground church (Presbyterian, which is Trump’s faith). They fled to China during the 1920’s famine. Kim il Sung’s father died while he was still a child. He attended Communist schools in China, turned away from his Christian influence, and joined the China Communist Party.

      Kim il Sung was eventually trained by the Soviets who put him in power to form a new government in NK. Christianity (and other religions) were purged violently from NK at that time.

      The Chinese underground church has had an influence in NK and is the best hope for further rebuilding and growing the underground church in NK.

      I’m not sure how China’s Sinicization plan could eventually effect the Chinese underground church’s effort to fulfill their “Back to Jerusalem” plans to spread Christianity all the way from China back to Jerusalem (though it doesn’t sound good).

      I would think Kim Jong UN would be as controlling over religion in NK as China is. Hard to say what kind of influence South Korea may eventually have though if their relationship continues on the current path.
