    “I’m With Kanye”. How about a T-Shirt? Any suggestions for appropriate graphics?

      Well, instead of invoking the Hildebeast’s failed slogan, how about turning it around?

      “Kanye’s with US!”

      (Both “us” and the “US”, as in USA.)

      As for graphics, perhaps the map of the 2016 election results, presented by COUNTY, with the # of counties for PDJT as percentage of the total, may work.

      On the back – a HUGE RED TSUNAMI.

      Just a couple thoughts for ya …

          Thanks!

          Additionally, I’d say make the t-shirt available ONLY in black, with all graphics and text ONLY in red, white, and blue.

          And, maybe a slight edit to the slogan, “KANYE FOR US!”.

          Multiple versions also could be used, like “CANDACE FOR US”, and others.

          Get ’em done quickly – QUICKLY! – for sales / distribution within a week MAX, to let them be seen at as many MAGA rallies as possible. Site vendors would EARN bigly! (And why not?)

          Marketing 101 … lol!

            Kanye is fine, he is just a very bright individual who has a lot to say. He has more to “say” then regular words allows him to. I do not recall him attaching any individual, in fact the opposite, but he is attacked routinely. The world is made up of many, some do not always use words we like, or should use. While I do not believe in using bad words, but he was not swearing, or cursing (in the real traditional meaning of the words) or trying to hurt any individual.

            As far as his mental health he seems good in my view, as I said he is extremely bright. I do believe he was misdiagnosed 9 years ago, from what I read and observed. Unfortunately, many in the mental health profession make bad diagnoses like the one made on him, when it comes to exceptional bright people. Most Mental health people try to “adjust” the patient to norms of what they view as “normal”; this unfortunately this is bad for truly bright people. What they need and apparently his new people did was to make sure that the patient mind is healthy. Being truelove bright is a blessing and a curse.

            The stigma of Mental health is bad, many people are made better with some help (most cases temporary); more would if it was not for the stigma . There are many people who have problems, diagnosed or not, who’s work and ideas greatly benefit the world.

            He was speaking the way he raps. If you have ever listened to his music, you would have understood him. I’m not a huge fan of his music, but have heard some of his songs. He is actually very intelligent and can reach out to a large group of voters that our President needs. I, as a Trump supporter am greatful he has the courage to speak his mind.

          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 for 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.

            It is BAD for DEMOCRATS folks when Slate is writing this:

            From the article linked above:

            Democrats who’ve white-knuckled their way through the difficult 2018 Senate map, then, are counting the minutes until all this will be over, and the party can make its Senate comeback in the 2020 cycle.

            After all, that’s how it usually works: In 2014, Republicans picked up nine Senate seats in their response to the 2008 Obama wave; in 2016, Democrats clawed back a couple of the seats Republicans won in the 2010 Tea Party wave. Republicans this cycle are trying to unseat all of the Obama coattail-riders from his 2012 re-election. By the laws of our alternate-turn politics, it should come full circle in 2020 when Democrats avenge that 2014 Republican wave.

            But the next cycle is the one where the harsh reality of the Senate’s structural bias towards smaller, less dense states truly begins to sink in for Democrats. All those seats that Democrats lost in 2014? Good luck taking them back.

            The TRUMP ARMY is volunteering and working like crazy!

            I guess having the Lowest Unemployment Rate Ever has Latinos happy!

          Possibly, the President is negotiating a surrender to civility by the press. 60 Minutes is the grand doyenne of broadcast news. If they treat him with respect as well as lobbing hardball questions, the other media are given a template which permits them to climb down from the unsustainable high pose of nonstop Trump-bashing. A truce has to be struck, broadcasters and print journalists are starting to realize, or else they all will go charging off into shabby irrelevance, just like CNN has done.

      President Trump has had nearly two years of experience with MSM now and knows how to handle them. He also knows how important it is for Republicans to win these midterm congressional elections. 60 Minutes has a lot of viewers who may not have the time to watch his rallies. And there likely are many undecideds who’ll watch 60 Minutes and that’s very smart to appeal to them.
      I think it’ll go quite well. CBS isn’t as obviously biased and vicious as ABC or NBC.

  7. Excellent article on the Khashoggi story. As usual, he was a much more complex figure than originally reported. That said, some worrisome indications of what we always knew was a less than free state in Saudi Arabia (they have kings/princes, for goodness sake–never a recipe for liberty).

      Having read the article, it sounds like he was as much an enemy of Western Civilization as Linda Sarsour is, just a different flavor of Islamist. The need to document his destruction to me seems to be an intent to use the video to cow MBS opponents within Saudi Arabia. The timing is certainly bad for Trump, the Democrats will certainly try and use it to turn the tide in the Mid-terms.
      When you say Kings & princes are not a recipe for liberty I think you mean RULING kings and princes, as many Western European countries still have them as nominal heads of state.

      Very good article. Thank you for posting. This is not how a professional hit is done. Every attempt is made to keep things secret – you don’t pull off a murder in one of your embassy. As Tars says it may be a near media event to scare off opponents of MBS or it may be such a public execution to drive a wedge between the ruling clan and well – the rest of the world, including US and Israel. Note Turkey’s involvement and other current news out of that place.

    Witches to Hex Justice Kavanaugh in Occult Ritual in NYC

    (CNSNews.com) — Witches plan to place a public hex on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh through an occult ritual on Oct. 20 in New York City, an event sponsored by Catland Books, which describes itself as “Brooklyn’s premiere occult bookshop & spiritual community space.” The planned ritual has been advertised on Facebook.

      Now, if you argue with me that witchcraft DOES exist, or that it DOES have power… then I can use your belief in the supernatural to suggest that you are now admitting that Jesus Christ exists….

      And Jesus Christ is the ultimate Trump card. So either Witchcraft is nonsense, or it exists and Jesus exists too.

      He is a christian I am sure he prays the Lords Prayer and it is the Lords Prayer that keeps us free from any hex and spell.
      Always remember the Lords Prayer is the key .

    Is it the Kavanaugh effect? Is it revulsion with angry, unhinged mobs? Is it pollsters recognizing the election draws near and continued push-polling will destroy what little is left of their credibility?

    Who cares because the trends look beautiful..

    Go to RealClearPolitics and look at their house and senate maps. Not two weeks ago they estimated for the house – 206 D; 189 R; 40 Undecided. Today – 204 D; 199 R; 32 U… And nearly all the U’s are being fought in friendly Red district territory…

    For the senate – two weeks ago – 47 R; 44 D; 9U… Today – 50 R; 44 D; 6U… They are already conceding we will hold the Senate… And some states still listed as leaning D may, in fact, actually be in play as they have not been polled recently… Call me Suspicious Cat for wondering why Missouri and Indiana are polled so infrequently… I guess MSM doesn’t want us to know the truth…

    And, surprisingly, I will endorse a New York Times thing I was cued to by another treeper. Their “Live Polling” looks amazingly honest… Everyone else had Marsha Blackburn in a nearly dead heat a week or so ago. They just finished her poll today and show her up +14!!!! Not only that they provide alternate voter profile weightings so that you can make your own judgement. For instance, with a 2014 turnout model (the last mid term), she would be up +21!!!! I have not complimented the Times since election night when their real time tracker first gave indications that DJT could beat the odds and win!! This seems similarly fair minded… Go figure…

    Canada shuts down the NAFTA loophole:

    Finance Minister Bill Morneau will impose immediate global tariffs and quotas designed to deflect a damaging flood of steel imports into Canadian markets as a result of U.S. levies.

    The “provisional safeguard” measures on seven steel products — considered emergency actions by the World Trade Organization — will apply to all countries including China, but will provide specific exemptions for the United States, Mexico and developing countries.

    The government will also provide relief in the form of refunds on import tariffs paid on imported U.S. steel and aluminum products that are in short supply in Canada.

    “This is an adjustment mechanism giving the industry time to take a breather and deal with the surge of imports into this country,” said Lawrence Herman, an international trade lawyer at Herman and Associates, who is representing smaller steel firms involved in the issue. “Steel was flowing into Canada, there was a need for the government to take action.”

      Ethanol causes real problems with small engines. Gasoline with ethanol is only good for 30 days before it starts to degrade. The bacteria in ethanol gas releases acidic sulfur compounds that react with brass parts and coat them with a solid blue-green precipitate .It will plug the fuel jet. The fuel jet in the carb is made of brass & it gets clogged with sulfate precipitate from ethanol fuel… Remove the float bowl, slide the float pin that holds the float in place out, remove the float and needle valve. Then using a small socket remove the main fuel jet – it looks like a brass nut blow the float.. There is a very small hole through the fuel jet (it looks like a small brass bolt) .. you can clean out the jet using a fine piece of wire strand cut from an old lamp cord to poke out the hole in the jet… Clean any powder out of the bottom of the float bowl and reassemble…. It should work fine if it had been running ok when last used… Replacement carburetors can be bought on e-bay for usually less than $20… A small engine shop will charge you around $120 to do the same thing or try to sell you a new generator.

    Trump’s List: 289 Accomplishments in Just 20 Months….

    “As Trump nears the two-year mark of his historic election and conducts political rallies around the country during which he talks up his wins in hopes it will energize Republican voters, the administration has counted up 289 accomplishments in 18 categories, capped by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    They include 173 major wins like adding more than 4 million jobs and another 116 smaller victories, some with outsized importance such as the 83 percent one-year increase in arrests of MS-13 gang members….”

      It is easy to see why the people in our country will vote overwhelmingly again for this man and vote for those who support him in the mid-terms. Black people are working, Hispanics are working, Asians are working…..All in record numbers.

      The element of success is ingrained in the human genes and spirit to achieve success. When you allow people the freedom to achieve, people are happiest. American Exceptionalism is why the rest of the world aspires to be like us.

      Americans are tired of sitting around collecting welfare checks, food stamps, and wallowing in crap that Obama governed them into. That is why they love the road to exceptionalism that President Trump has paved for the country.

    Haven’t seen much discussion here about healthcare. Just about every dem ad and candidate are making this their primary platform here in NE PA. Endless ads with cancer patients who are claiming that Trump is eliminating pre existing conditions and how they would die with his plan. Of course they also include his cuts to medicare. This is really playing to the uninformed and those who are now benefitting from free obamacare. What is more disturbing than their lies and fearmongering, is I have yet to see any pushback from R’s. While we are all distracted by palace intrigue, many Americans polled state this is their primary issue. Not sure why we are silent on this. I believe Trump admin are very engaged with solutions to our obamacare nightmare, but their silence is curious. Maybe some new plans will be unveiled before midterms?

    “What differentiates Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from all other mental disorders? The difference is in its origin or what’s known as the trigger. Other such disorders, in general, are dateless, they may erupt because of genetics or a dysfunctional upbringing, or response to substance abuse, but little is known about when they actually began. With PTSD, however, there must be an event, a specific event that can be identified as related to the ensuing psychological and emotional state of an individual. With PTSD, the accompanying symptoms are easily identifiable and are related to the event or trigger.”

    The “Memo Smear”

    I read yesterday that shortly after Comey was fired, Rosenstein tried to get McCabe to recuse himself from the Russia probe. McCabe then argued that Rosenstein should be recused. This seems at odds with Rosenstein shortly thereafter offering to wear a wire to secretly record the President. Suddenly McCabe are working together only a short time after they wanted each other to be recused? There is something about Rosenstein’s alleged offer to wear a wire that doesn’t quite fit.

    It struck me that leaking memos to the press might be an FBI tactic used to set up an innocent man. It seems Comey and McCabe may have used a similar tactic. Nancy Pelosi might call it the “Memo Smear.”

    Comey wanted to set up President Trump. Comey had plenty of reasons to want President Trump impeached, to prevent the revelation of FBI FISA abuse and the handling of the Clinton Email scandal. After a meeting with the President he prepares a contemporaneous memo of their conversation. The memo states that the President told Comey “I hope you can let Flynn off.” Comey’s memo notes he felt the President was exerting pressure and obstructing his handling of the Flynn matter. Comey’s memos of other conversations also suggest the President is using undue influence. Later on, after Comey is fired, the memos are leaked the press and the Special Counsel is appointed. President Trump denies ever saying what Comey quotes him as saying. However, the Memo Smear worked. Mueller is still in place.

    Recently McCabe employs the same tactic against Rosenstein. Around the time Mueller was appointed McCabe met with Rosenstein and some other officials (perhaps other officials who were part of the “small group”). McCabe’s contemporaneous memo of the meeting indicates Rosenstein offered to wear a wire and secretly record the President in an attempt to invoke the 25th Amendment. After the meeting McCabe spoke with James Baker and other, and to add support for what the memo says, he tells Baker and others that Rosenstein was “ully supportive of wearing a wire. Later on, after McCabe has been fired and is about to be indicted, the memo is leaked to the press. Suddenly Rosenstein looks like the bad guy. Rosenstein was McCabe’s boss at the time. Rosenstein signed the final FISA warrant. If Rosenstein favored continued surveillance of the President, then McCabe was simply following orders. McCabe did offer to drag others down with him.

    I’m not saying this is what happened, but I wouldn’t put it past McCabe to employ against Rosenstein the Memo Smear tactic he learned from his mentor Comey.

    Was the McCain Institute the Same Deal as Clinton Foundation ?

    Posted Oct 12, 2018 by Martin Armstrong

    COMMENT: The view of John McCain from outside the United States is completely opposite of how the American press portrays him. I even heard like Hillary, he too had a foundation that people had to donate to for him to sponsor certain bills.
    HJ

    REPLY: Oh yes, there is no question that the press outside the USA never portrayed McCain in some glowing light. He was always protected by the American press. It is just hard to say why or what was going on behind the curtain in this matter (see South China Morning Post). As far as the McCain Institute, he started it with $8 million in cash from political contributions he did not spend and they get to keep, which nobody ever talks about. The McCain Institute has accepted money also from George Soros and from Teneo, which was the company of Doug Band, the former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.” Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals. It has even been alleged that the Clinton’s told McCain how to do it. Hillary even defends McCain.

    McCain Institute has refused to disclose how much money big donors have contributed to get influence with John McCain the Senator. McCain was against Trump because one of the things Trump has targeted to “Drain the Swamp” is this type of set up like the Clinton Foundation and McCain Institute that allow people to bribe politicians. Trump has publicly stated that is what he use to do and the Clintons even showed up at his wedding. USA Today back in 2014 reported that people with actions before the Senate were donating to McCain. This is outright plain corruption that they exonerate themselves on all the time.

    One rumor is that Bill Browder allegedly donated to McCain Institute and in return, he sponsored the Magnitsky Act. No politicians should be allowed to have any such parallel “foundation” or “institute” that is really part of the Swamp. This has to be made illegal and jail time for any politician OR their family to run such a thing on the side. You will NEVER read about that in the NY Times, Washington Post, or hear it on CNN. They all love the Swamp and defend it every chance they get.

    The President: A Man In Full

    First, America always does the right thing … but only after exhausting every other option.
    Second, the biggest winner is President Donald Trump. Notch another victory on his belt. The score after 21 months in office is Trump 100, Democrats 0. Against all odds, Trump just keeps winning.
    Remember, last week Trump also won the Mexico-Canada trade battle; unemployment dropped to the lowest level since 1969; Hispanic unemployment dropped to the lowest level ever; manufacturing jobs growth was the best since 1995; and Trump’s approval rating soared to 51 percent at Rasmussen. Polls show Republicans pulling away in Senate races across the country. This was the best week of the Trump presidency.
    In Trump’s world, it’s all about the fight and your fighting spirit. It’s all about your ability to bare-knuckle brawl. Winning isn’t about brains or IQ. It isn’t about brilliant ideas or unique strategy. Winning is all about being a relentless fighter. Being a bulldog. Being a bull in a china shop. It’s about fighting spirit. It’s about believing in yourself and your goals. It’s about fighting so hard, so passionately, you never let go until victory is achieved.
    It’s about who wants it more. Trump always wants it more.
    That’s what Trump is all about — the fight. Sure, you get bruised and battered and slandered. Sure, it hurts. But anything worth having is worth fighting for.
    Trump proved it in the 2016 election. He was attacked, denigrated, slandered and humiliated more than any politician in history. But he never backed down. Instead he doubled down. He came right back at his critics. Winston Churchill said, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” Trump just kept going … and fighting.
    And after being slandered and called all those bad names, he’ll now be, for the rest of all-time, President Donald J. Trump. Was it worth it? You bet it was.
    Churchill also said, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never.” That rule is more important than anything else. It’s the reason Trump keeps getting his brains beat in and yet always comes out ahead. He’s bloody, dizzy and staggering, but his arms are raised in victory. You can’t beat Trump, because you can’t outlast Trump.
    The other big winner was Brett Kavanaugh. The vicious, soulless, American left tried to destroy him, ruin him, eviscerate him. They never imagined a wimpy, middle-aged, judge from Yale had it in him to fight back like a no-holds-barred street brawler. But Kavanaugh studied Trump. He learned from Trump.
    All his brilliance, eloquence and fancy Yale education didn’t win the Supreme Court for Kavanaugh. He had to take off the suit, get down in the mud and fight for it. Kavanaugh channeled the “Trump Rules.” If you want something in life, you’ve got to fight for it. Just as Trump proved, once you’re on the other side of the battle, with your hands raised, it is all worth it. The ugliness, lies and slander are all forgotten. All that matters is they call you Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
    The final winner was the entire GOP. Republicans have always been the party of wimps, cowards and “nice guys who finish last.” Trump changed all that.
    This isn’t your father’s GOP. This is the party of Trump. This is now a party of brawlers, head-bangers and New York street fighters. Heck, even our judges are willing to get in the ring and go 12 rounds!

      And there you have it… the spin that will be spun to slam President Trump.

      If the guy is dead… well, he wasn’t a good guy, even if he has been working for WaPo, so I won’t be crying any tears. Also, it didn’t happen here, it happened in Turkey and he is not an American Citizen (although he does have a green card).

      This whole Kashoggi/Brunson thing sure smells like a Turkish Muslim Brotherhood setup.
      The timing of these events is way too convenient…

        Yeah. Takes some heat off the Turks, leaving only Saudi Arabia out there as so-called bad guys. Now who do you think may have helped with the timing? If the MusBro is involved, I smell the stench of VJ and BHO in this little hoohah.

        Totally agree poker. The tell is msm. If they are treating this as a major global story, it’s fake news aimed at Trump.

        While I will NEVER trust Saudi, I sure as heck don’t trust Turkey. They never act like a NATO partner and should have never been admitted. Why on earth would Saudi do anything against US/TRUMP? Makes no sense. I would be more apt to believe Saudi carried out a hit for us. Trump knows.

      Does anyone else think this Khashoggi thing is an international deep state operation design to derail the Prince’s reforms and derail the working relationship between the President, the Isrealis, the Saudis and the Jordanians?

        It definitely has the overkill, zany accusation nature that comes with the modern deep state / liberal party attack. In the age where the deep state imagines hookers peeing on beds and teenagers holding gang rape parties, simply killing someone, or just imprisoning them is too lame an accusation. Why else would you need to blindly accept that 15 agents cut him up and snuck the pieces out in small diplomatic pouches? How many agents does it take to cut up somebody and serve them with fava beans?

        In some sense it makes all the usual complaining subjects just sound ridiculous. “If SA killed him, and if they cut him up, and if they snuck his body out in little pieces, and if they made a video tape for MBS to enjoy, why then there will be hell to pay.” I actually heard words like these on the radio today. What if they didn’t cut the body up? Or they didn’t sneak it out in little pieces? Is everything just fine if one of those two things didn’t accompany the supposed murder?

        And is it coincidence that the accusation comes out of Turkey at the same time that Turkey agrees to release the American Pastor? Almost looks coordinated to influence America pro-Turkey and anti-Saudi Arabia.

        And hardly anybody is referring to the victim as another Muslim Brotherhood change activist. No, they all depict him as some pro western crusader.

        On the other hand, maybe all that is just the deep state being the deep state and there really was an arrest and or an execution.

        that is exactly what it is. and the more people dig they will find. but that’s the thing, they create a story, slam it down our throats, blame the president, and then they know by the time the truth is found out the lie is already embedded in everyone’s brain…

      Makes sense Mifsud being in British pay. Malta was a British colony for many years, and was also an espionage hotbed because of its position in the Mediterranean long before it became famous for being one.

      What! The press somewhere is still acting like the press used to act! You know where overtly asking the president of another country to keep embarrassing information secret is a cue to find it and make it public regardless of who it hurts.

      Nowadays the press usually just takes their cues from the parties. If liberals want it kept secret, then we keep it secret. If conservatives want something then we do the opposite.
