      I like Manchin personally, but politically he votes with Cryin’ Chuck almost always.
      Elections have to be about policy, not personality. Kevin McCarthy is right ….it’s come down to America vs Socialism. Vote accordingly.

      It can’t be Manchin.

    Regarding the caravan… Apparently Sara Carter is down there (as PDJT advised the WH Pool) doing some actual investigative journalism. She said there are a few women, carefully placed at the front of the caravan but she has yet to see any babies. Although she did see a baby stroller, but when she walked up to it she observed it contained luggage. She said there are definitely gang members, some MS13 and some other gangs.

      Hi Sylvia,
      I say one of Sara’s vids yesterday… apparently she speaks Spanish. She was conversing in Spanish w/ couple members of caravan. I have tried to find English translation of vid…

      A week or so ago I saw women with babies and women w/ toddlers. After that there were reports that about 2,000 had turned back. Perhaps some of these were women with very young children.

      Sylvia, Sara skyped to Hannity night and presented some video and commentary. Coincided with what you posted.

      It was great when PDJT gave a presser yesterday and Jimmy boy [Acosta] was trying to give PDJT a hard time. Asked how does he know there are terrorists in the Invasion march. PDJT of course is not going to divulge his sources. After the third time PDJT replied “why don’t you take your cameraman and go down there and see for yourself.”

      Bet PDJT has people down there and probably knows Sara is there.

    Yesterday I mentioned to my wife about the supposed bomb sent to Soros. She asked why I was saying it in a sarcastic tone, and I told her this would be the new tactic. She didn’t seem to understand. And so when I just woke up an hour ago (yeah, I stayed up REAL late last night), the first thing she did was told me all about the news… “Look, they say there’s a bunch more bombs today.” And before I bothered to check or ask her any names, I was like, “Let me guess. Hillary got one. Obama got one. All the other Trump Haters got one, right?” She looks at me confused… “Yeah, I think so.”

    I haven’t read these comments here yet, but I’m assuming I won’t be the first person saying this: It’s either one of two things… it’s either some crazy person who may, indeed, be a Trump supporter but is too wacked out and stupid to realize that such action DON’T help Trump. Or in my opinion, more likely it’s just the opposite, it’s an ANTI-Trump person pretending to be PRO-Trump… for obvious reasons. Of course I’m hoping it’s the latter. But even if it’s the former (actually a Trump supporter) it’ll be fine as long as we don’t stick up for that person, and Trump and the rest of his administration handle it the right way, which they seem to be doing. Of course we know the MSM will do everything in their power to make this a negative for Trump/us, but so what… nothing new.

    Regarding the midterms… Yesterday morning on Fox and Friends I caught an interview with Mia Love, Republican, running for reelection in her Utah congressional district. She came up through the Tea Party but deeply disappointed me by joining the Utah Never Trump contingent.

    Nonetheless, this is war so if I lived in her Congressional District I’d hold my nose and vote for her. But she has been smeared by her Dim opponent, accused of election campaign financing misdeeds. She has been cleared by the FEC of any wrongdoing, so this was essentially like filing a false police report. But her Dim opponent continues to accuse her saying this matter hasn’t been cleared.

    And it gets worse. Supposedly the claim against her was made by some “independent organization” with an altruistic name like “Utahans for Honest Government” or some bland name like that. In reality, the head of the group is deeply involved with her Dim opponent and the group is financed by/tied to the Dim opponent and his campaign.

    Just another example of dirty tricks. Politics is one ugly business and those Dims are truly experts at the dirties of the dirty tricks.

The Unit evaluates each request on a case-by-case basis to determine the need for Amtrak Police resources, and to determine an appropriate course of action. We’ve found this to be mutually beneficial as we can assure the safety of the individual/group as well as keep the flow of pedestrian traffic moving.’”

    Some desperate October surprises have been launched this month.

    First there was eternal fifteen year old Ph.D. Blasey pointing out that even the most boy scoutingist looking Republican (Brett Kavanaugh) was a secret rapist. Even though we all paid lip service to “she was credible and something must have happened to her” to which I reply Toro Manure…No 15 year old represses memories until she’s 50, for once the GOP refused to go into a defensive crouch.

    So they moved on to Trump’s pulling out of the Paris accord causing Hurricane Micheal to take out Florida. When “we the people” said, don’t think so. Hurricanes have been around a lot longer than even Paris itself, they moved on to the Muslim Brotherhood-Washington Post dead journalist. That was supposed to drive us away from POTUS and the Republicans — Trump being mean about fake news supposedly putting journalists in danger — We went ho hum. Sorry he’s dead but he got dead in another country in another embassy and it’s their business not ours. And besides, nobody in the news media was all that upset when four dead American turned up in Benghazi. In fact, they sided with the administration that abandoned them.

    So then they went on to the invasion force which they call a “caravan” as if they are pilgrims in the Canterbury Tales. We were supposed to open our arms, checkbooks, welfare rolls and hearts to 4K desperate Hondurans and San Salvadorans who only want to come here to turn us into Honduras and San Salvadore,

    If that didn’t work, the biggs were going to crash the stock market and the Fed raise our interest rates.

    Still no blue wave?

    All right then, here it comes. BIG BERTHA. Our beloved Former FLOTUS, president, former CIA chief and dearest CNN received bombs! Yep, B O M B S. Doncha know it had to be Republicans’ doin? Couldn’t be no false flag or nuthin’ like that. Had to be them dastardly Republicans.

      “Republican State Sen. Karin Housley is making her battle against Sen. Tina Smith, the Democratic incumbent, into a real horse race, as she trails only 41% to 47%. That marks a swing for Housley since an NBC/Marist poll that concluded October 4 found Smith with 54% of the vote and Housley with 38%. 62% of those planning to vote for Housley felt strongly about their vote; 58% of Smith voters felt that way about their candidate.

      On Sunday, KSTP had planned to host a debate between Housley and Smith but Smith never showed up.”

      Marist Polls suck.

    A year ago today, thanks to Devin Nunes, the preposterous Russian collusion narrative began to implode….and we’ve learnt A LOT more since then. . . . . with MUCH MORE TO COME.

    The alleged bombs mailed to Obama, Hillary, Soros and others on the radical political fringe have already garnered more media coverage than the time that a Bernie supporter opened fire on Republicans at a charity baseball practice.

    And that’s sad, but not surprising.

    Acts of left-wing political terror, whether it’s the Southern Poverty Law Center inspired shooter at the Family Research Council or the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, the numerous acts of vandalism, harassment and even physical attacks, not to the murder of 4 police officers in Dallas by a Black Lives Matter supporter, rarely carry any political consequences for the movements behind them.

    Just got home from taking my dad for his pre-dr. Appt Blood work, in Carbondale, Illinois.

    On The way home, we cruised over to the Southern Illinois Airport where TRUMP rally will be held on Saturday, so i could reconn the place. (airport is actually a mile or so north of Carbondale & about 7-10mi east of Murphysboro- has always been known as Carbondale airport. SIU-southern Illinois university, has a flight school there as well).

    I wanted to plan ahead of time, just where we will be parking…not alot within the airport. 2 huge corn fields on either side of one lane/one way road into the airport. This road circles around (drove right next to hanger 6)& exits out another one lane road, with corn fields on either side.

    Most of fields are harvested & cut shorter than usual. One was being harvested as we cruised through. I hope they are going to tamp down the fields with heavy equipment, it’s supposed to rain on friday (1/2″ on the weather horoscope, I mean forecast) I’m thinking it’ll be muddy!

    They’ve been redoing the main road in front of the entrances over the last few months….i dont see parking happening along there….1/4 of a car- wide shoulders, with sharp drop off on either sides. I saw electrical workers working on new power poles along this road too.

    Back to the corn fields, Hanger 6 is about 2-2 1/2 football fields away. I saw no porta potties (yet?). I did see 1×2 or 2×2 stakes in the middle field with string connecting them…possible the maze of lines, we will be in, before SS check?

    As we drove through, school was in session. Students watching a dark grey, possibly DC-5 that had landed on one of the runways.

    Last night, I bought two $6.00 portable folding chairs for the wait, snacks & nicotine gum lol.

    And that, is my reconnaissance ground report for the Saturday TRUMP MAGA rally. Hope it somehow helps outta town & outta state Treepers planning to attend.

    Look for me, I’m the one with 2 full-sleeve tattoos, 2 nosebridge piercings, one lower lip piercing & wearing a medium blue TRUMP/PENCE t-shirt….Ya can’t miss me 😄

I remember when had lefty protestors at Trump rallies and some were overheard bragging about tactics and one was called “birddogging “ – have a woman protester walk near a Trump male supporter going into rally and fall down screaming that he hit her and sidekicks would run over and tend her and shout that guy hit her , create a false scene . They got caught in NC I believe where woman targeted a legally blind man holding on to his wife’s hand for guidance , but he had to go through a police report before hoax uncoversd. Are the “ bombs “ any different? , especially with list of “all star “ recipients , that frankly who would waste the postage on . Another case of Dem /lefty sympathizer “over -egging” the omelette perhaps.

      Birdogging they call it?

      Sounds exactly like what Michelle Fields did (with Ben Shapiro) – an act of birdogging. I didn’t know it had a name.

      Due to that episode, I still can’t pay Shapiro any mind. As far as I know he’s not addressed his role in that fiasco – but, until he does, he’s persona non grata to me.

    “A suspicious package sent to the Florida office of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder but had the wrong address, two law enforcement sources said. It was returned to the Democratic congresswoman because that was the return label on the package, the sources said, adding that it was the same return address for the packages sent to Obama and Clinton.”

    And, continueing to rack up points, simultaneously getting things done, for American people, WHILE maintaining an unbelievable campaign schedule.

    And on the OTHER SIDE, they are also trying to leave it all on the field.
    Kavanaugh debacle, caravan invasion, and now phoney bomb threats, …

    The choice couldn’t be clearer. I KNOW I’m ‘preaching to the choir, but
    VOTE, NOT because your life depends on it. Their are things far more important than your life,!

    Vote because the liberties of ALL our grandchildren depends on it, as well as the continueation of America.
