    Why hasn’t the Florida Dr. Kevorkian of Republican votes been fired? According to Sundance this is a well-known issue. Why wasn’t she fired or locked up long before this? Pam Bondi IS and WAS the AG. Voter fraud is a crime, RIGHT????

    That’s the only question that really needs to be answered immediately.

    Elected Republicans in Florida smarten up…..

      I agree. He’s been on this since Thursday night when only the people in California were tweeting about it. It spread so quickly when the wind picked up to 50mph+. I couldn’t find any loca CA stations covering it live so thought about Steve, checked, and there he was… up at 2:00AM his time.

It is going to hit the fan. Back to prepping. 2 years to another shot at them. It is going to be ugly. Nuke them now Mr. President…What have you got to lose at this point. I am going to retire from all this political insanity soon.

    So I thought I’d put this out there.
    7PM Eastern CBS Radio News report includes NO MENTION of President Trump being in France for the 100th anniversary of the original Armistice Day. Only talks about Merkel and Macron (sounds like a bad comedy team moniker) meeting at the clearing in the forest where the fighting stopped in November, 1918 and then going into the train car where the Armistice was signed. That’s bad enough. But wait, there, more:
    Next part of the “news report” was about how the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION (CBS called it “the migrant caravan”), after resting in Mexico City, began the next run to OUR border courtesy of transportation furnished by the MEXICAN GOVERNMENT. Then the “news report” said that President Trump had put over 5,000 US military troops at the border to keep them out AND WITH NO PROOF, the President “claimed that there are drug runners and even terrorists” in the caravan.
    So—WHY hasn’t our government broadcast the proof that there ARE these types and more, in the INVASION HORDE? I haven’t seen any real wall to wall publishing of proof. There must be embeds in the INVASION who know.

      the media is ignoring the reports from the embeds and spinning it to favor the Dems (just like you aren’t seeing proof of voter fraud in FL). Sara Carter saw MS-13 and other drug runners when she was there. Griff Jenkins interviewed a guy who was deported for murder. Mexico is probably sick of them as they are a caravan of gimmies and criminals. Last I heard, the buses are heading for Tijuana for a warm and friendly welcome in Commiefornia.

  8. I just wanted to say one thing since the ‘Q’ thread is locked to replies and i’ll leave it alone, many here and elsewhere know my feeling and opinons on the issue. Anyways, it is supposedly a dangerous LARP. Ok premise accepted. Then answer me but ONE question. If it was dangerous, and NOT fulfilling a purpose for Trump. WHY hasn’t he shut it down? It would take 4 words in ONE tweet to kill it FOREVER (Q is not real ). WHY hasn’t he simply done that? I’ll wait for THAT explanation.

    Right now any one of those is going to be tough. He needs the new NAFTA and the trade war with China to be over with by election time.

            However, Nikki Haley cannot be eligible for VP because her parents were not legal aliens when she was born. She is an anchor baby, and would not be certified for eligibility.

            If Nikki somehow got the nod for VP, the Dems would scream about her status, and they would be correct.

    CA treepers and anyone interested in CA republican party leadership please read this blog post. Travis Allen and 2 others potentials to take over. Interesting and we should pay attention to exactly who is MAGA or not. This is a partial post of the entry.

    https://rightondaily.com/2018/11/travis-allen-update-being-talked-to-about-running-for-ca-48-or-cagop-chairman/

    “I have been active in California Republican Politics for 21 years and counting.

    I have had a front row seat to watch 20 years of Controlled Failure.

    First off, let me say that I think it is absurd and insane for anyone to talk to Travis Allen about running for Congress. Dana Rohrabacher is not gone yet and Scott Baugh needs a clear avenue to get his clock cleaned once and for all should Dana lose the final tally. Travis has a young family and a financial planning business he is trying to get cranking again.

    It is alleged that Harley Rhouda had about 3,000 paid operatives on the ground in the final days of the election as they appear to have made over 100,000 door knocks in the final 72 hours before election day. The GOP had not much more than a standard token ground game. I am not sure anyone outside of a Rich dude looking for a new adventure in CA wants to mess with that kind of fire.

    The CAGOP is going to need a religious experience to manifest 3,000 volunteers in Orange County, let alone a Congressional District.

    Having seen first hand what happened in Northern Nevada, I get 100% what happened. I saw canvassers sometimes 5 deep in precincts in Central Reno (think dem areas). I know of several people in Reno that were not contacted by anything other than mail (Registered R’s). Heller and Laxalt got beaten on the ground, period.

    I’ve watched a generation of Republican consultants that eschew the ground game. You can’t win with just a ground game, and you can’t win with just media.

    I’ve watched a generation of CAGOP Chairman talk a good game about grassroots but the grassroots and ground games continue to degrade. Jim Brulte was successful at digging the CAGOP out of Bankruptcy and holding a shrinking, fractured party structure together. Most of his predecessors that I knew failed at one or the other.

    I have also watched as big money has allowed a very small oligarchy of consultants to basically take over the skeleton known as the California Republican Party. They dictate everything that goes on behind the scenes and had ironclad control until Chad Mayes’ very public meltdown shattered that paradigm of control. They are scrambling to regain that stranglehold.”

Jesse Jackson), announced that ANY cooperation with ICE from “his” department is OVER. He joins the new Sheriff of Wake County (Raleigh), also a self-proclaimed black, in non-cooperation with ICE.

    • That’s where I live..Buncombe County, NC. Not to worry….I have lived here 13 years. During that time, Asheville…big city here, most of population..has had 3, maybe 4, police chiefs. There have been one or two white males, one black male, and one white female who has just resigned. I suggest the next police chief to be a transgender Muslim native American…that should make everything good.

      This guy is the third sheriff…one white male in jail for corruption; one white male took a big payoff from totally corrupt county manager investigated and indicted by FBI; now this dude, black male…former Asheville police officer, not exactly good credentials since there is obviously some type of rats nest in that department.

      This is Democrat Party politic at its finest.

    Granted this is an absurd hypothetical but bear with me. Assume Snipes “found” enough ballots to actually flip the race to Nelson without even a recount. Now imagine the Florida Gov, SOS and AG were all Dems and simply said “We stand with Snipes” and called it for Nelson despite that the fraud was patently clear. THEN WHAT?

    It’s absurd but whatever step can be taken at that point is essentially the same avenue that must be taken should Bondi, et al just sit back and let what’s happening happen. Yes, this is a Florida issue and they should get to deal with their own dirty laundry but there are national implications too. So…should Florida fail to protect the rest of us from the effects of its own corruption, what IS the recourse?

    Glad I’m not living in NC. Three new sheriffs got elected. Carolina Public Press interviewed two of them. Both are planning for chaos, disorder, and evil to exist. Interview excerpts below.

    Quentin Miller, Buncombe County
    ————————–
    As usual for anti-gunners, he gaslights, saying he’s for the 2nd Amd, which always means they’re for their OWN interpretation of the 2nd Amd.

    CPP: Your policy platform included stricter gun laws, such as universal background checks for gun show and internet sales, a two-week wait period for gun purchases and getting guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. How do you plan to advocate for those changes?

    Miller: I am in support of the Second Amendment. My real issue is with these assault weapons. I call them weapons of war. I’m talking about the ARs. … I spent time in the military and I trained with the M16. I know that weapon is meant to destroy or kill the enemy. I do think that law enforcement should be the ones with that weapon. I don’t think you should be able to get that as a civilian. … I’ve told people we haven’t had a shooting here in Buncombe County in our schools, but we have to keep in mind that it’s happened all over the country. In the places where it has happened, they didn’t think it was coming, but it did. … (In some cases) we know this person had a problem, but they didn’t go further. I also advocate for more counselors in schools.
    ==========

    Paula Dance, Pitt County
    ——————————-
    Pitt County elected its first African-American woman sheriff Tuesday night, when voters picked Paula Dance, D-Greenville. Great! A Democrat operative with badge, gun, and arrest powers!

    CPP: You mentioned during the campaign that you wanted the demographics of the Sheriff’s Office to match your community. How will you accomplish that?

    Dance: Sometimes you have communities that are more disenfranchised than others. Typically, African-Americans and Latinos can’t afford to quit their jobs for four months to go through basic law enforcement training. That’s a big hit when you’re talking about needing to take care of financial needs in the home. … I will be looking at ways to try to identify people who may be in that disenfranchised group and get them vetted and ensure they have the ability to get through the law enforcement academy and possibly go ahead and hire those people after vetting them … and then send them to the academy. That way they draw a salary as they are going through the academy.”

    I was listening to this Lawfare podcast that jeans2nd posted (along with great comments) in the “Countermeasures and Questions” thread (https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/11/10/countermeasures-and-questions)

    I encourage everyone to listen if you have time. It’s very interesting, sometimes frustrating, sometimes laughable, but definitely worth your time IMO. jeans2nd posted her own takeaways in that other thread. Here are a few things that I thought were important:

    Whitaker might just be a temporary replacement to fill Sessions’ absence and might not have any purpose beyond that. If true, then we should not pin our hopes in Whitaker ending the Mueller witch hunt or taking any other significant action. We might need to just wait for the new AG. Hopefully the RINOs that some of your states elected into Senate seats will not pull a John McCain and vote down a good nominee. Thank God we still have the majority in the Senate.

    Anything that happens between now and the new Congress (Jan 3) will be under a microscope and the Dems are watching carefully and will take action when they take control of the House. If Whitaker does move forward to end the Mueller witch hunt or take any other significant action, you can be sure the Dems will fight it tooth and nail. They are already obsessing over Whitaker’s alleged need to recuse himself. And as Sundance pointed out earlier today there is a narrative that Trump purposefully selected Whitaker.

    To those of you Trump supporters who didn’t vote during the mid-terms or who voted for Dems or candidates from other parties rather than your GOP candidates, here are a few of the painful results of your choices:

    Jerry Nadler becomes the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee (currently Bob Goodlatte)
    Elijah Cummings becomes the Chairmain of the House Oversight Committee (currently Trey Gowdy) ,,, this makes me want to puke
    Adam Schiff becomes the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee (currently Devin Nunes) … this makes me want to puke even more

    Expect all of those investigations into FISA abuse and other misdeeds to be hobbled if not completely shut down. Fortunately Trump holds some pretty powerful cards, but IMO it would be better if he didn’t have to play them.

    I swear, our US House seat may have a similar issue in NY. I am going to try calling our candidate to find out if he, a retired State Police captain, has any knowledge of any similar issues.

    NEWS PRESS RELEASE | NOV 11 |
    PHOENIX — Statement from McSally Campaign CEO Jim Bognet on the current state of the Arizona senate race:

    “Today our vote total grew at a greater rate than expected, and we expanded our vote margins in rural areas counting mail-in ballots dropped off on election day. The latest release provides compelling evidence that the remaining uncounted ballots are favorable to Martha. And we will continue our effort to make sure all lawful ballots are counted.”

    BACKGROUND: As county recorders across the state continue to report numbers, the largest remaining category of votes to be counted strongly favor Martha because significantly more high propensity Republican early voters had not turned in their early ballots as of Election Day.
