    Just wanted to say – we got through Thanksgiving and now THEY the dear ones from the Liberal North have left –

    question: has anyone else experienced this

    – you know your loved one was in Paris in the late 1980’s when he brought some artwork home – you were there yourself (1985) –

    you have not been there since but you have seen numerous videos on youtube of what has happened in Paris in recent years (plus at least one eyewitness report from someone who lived there for many years) . . .

    however, when you ask your loved one about a recent trip there (Aug. 2018) –

    “remember when you were in Paris back in the late eighties and your brought back that painting – would you say Paris has changed much?”

    “no – not very much”


    I was dumbfounded at such blatant denial of reality – but would this be a form of gaslighting – to deny the reality of what is happening in Paris because to accept the reality would be to agree with President Trump and others alarmed with what has happened?

    Plus, no discussion about it from the wife and daughter of the dear loved one, no photos beyond just a few from scenic view points – what was the name of that in the Soviet Union? Pravda.

    I am decompressing from Thanksgiving!

        Subjective Statement:

        Is a statement that has been colored by the character of the speaker or writer.
        It often has a basis in reality, but reflects the perspective through which the speaker views reality.
        It cannot be verified using concrete facts and figures.

        Objective Statement:

        Is a statement that is completely unbiased.
        It is not touched by the speaker’s previous experiences or tastes.
        It is verifiable by looking up facts or performing mathematical calculations.

    Hillary Clinton also favored Skolkovo, an “innovation city” near Moscow, which enjoyed some $5 billion in Russian-government seed money. She discussed Skolkovo with Russia’s then-president, Dimitry Medvedev.

    Under Hillary, State encouraged American companies to participate in the Skolkovo project.

    By 2012, Skolkovo boasted 28 “Key Partners” in the U.S., Europe, and Russia. Among these major supporting organizations, three-fifths had donated or pledged funds to the Clinton Foundation or paid speaking fees to Bill Clinton.

    in 2014, the FBI wrote companies that operated in Skolkovo or backed the Skolkovo Foundation “may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research development facilities and dual-use technologies with military and commercial application,”

    The U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Program at Fort Leavenworth concluded in 2013: “Skolkovo is arguably an overt alternative to clandestine industrial espionage.”

    The Clintons actually did these things. This is no unicorn hunt. No theory, speculation, or breathless, Cold War fantasy is required. These actions (and inactions) happened.

    When it comes to Team Trump, Democrats and their journalist pals are as relentless as bloodhounds chasing escaped jailbirds. And yet, regarding the Clintons, the Democrats and old-guard news people are as ferocious as puppies enjoying a roaring fireplace.

    By all means, let Congress and the media get to the bottom of what, if anything, Russia may have done to influence last year’s elections and what, if anything, Team Trump did to help.

    But let’s also root out what, if anything, the Clintons did to advance Russia’s strategic position, while feathering their nests.

    Today in the beautiful city of Tijuana, we saw with fear an event that left many people frozen. The Honduran caravan moved to the sentry box of San ysidro, and between so much presumed migrant with necessities of a better life, this subject “Irenio mujica” was seen in a focus of attention. Who some point as one of the leaders who organized and encouraged the Honduran and Salvadoran citizens, leave their countries of origin and seek a better life in the United States.

      For those who, not understanding Spanish, chhose to skip the video, here is the upshot:

      This mob organizer (Irenio Mujica) said that the caravan was encouraged to come to America by Pres. Trump, via his twits in an attempt to irate Americans and bring them out to vote Republican in the recent elections. Now, Pres. Trump, having achieved his goal, has changed his mind, he said, and added: we don’t what to do next.

      This is a typical communist maneuver. Lie, lie, cheat, deceive. That’s what they do.

      My final coment: if thousands of caravan participants believe what this guy says they probably believe that they are qualified for asylum on the merit of being utterly stupid and gullibile.

    emails show Clinton Foundation staff pushed Hillary Clinton’s State Department to approve a meeting between Bill Clinton and a powerful Russian oligarch as her agency lined up investors for a project under his purview.

    The Clintons’ relationship with Viktor Vekselberg, the billionaire whose name appears in the documents, has taken on new significance amid an expanding criminal investigation into his company.

    Vekselberg had been named head of a partnership dubbed the “Russian Silicon Valley” [Skolkovo] just three months before a Clinton Foundation employee began pushing the State Department to approve Bill Clinton’s proposed meeting with Vekselberg and a handful of other Russian executives.

    Vekselberg’s Renova Group has donated between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, donor records show. Another firm associated with Vekselberg, OC Oerlikon, donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation.


  9. JX says:

    Bill Clinton sought State Department approval to invite a powerful, Putin-backed Russian oligarch with an expansive history of corruption to the Clinton Global Initiative’s 2012 meeting while Clinton’s wife was secretary of state, according to an e-mail newly obtained by National Review.

    The June 4, 2012 message was sent by Amitabh Desai, Bill Clinton’s foreign-policy director at the Clinton Foundation

    “Would [the U.S. government] have any concerns about CGI inviting Viktor Vekselberg, President of Renova Group, to attend CGI Annual Meeting in NYC in September?” Desai asks Clinton confidantes Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, and Michael Fuchs under the subject line “Russia/Viktor Vekselberg?”

        POTUS knew what he was getting into. He promised to stimulate the economy through deregulation, tax cuts and fair trade deals. Check. He put two Conservative justices.. and counting.. on the Supreme Court. Check and check. He fought for law rnforcement, War Veterans and he rebuilt the military. Foreign policy exacts pressure on China and Iran on economic fronts, NK is on the verge of ending its 60+ year war with SK and Israel is solidified as our ally with the US embassy move to Jerusalem. Those right there are one historic achievement after another, and all of them inside his first two years, with the entire government swamp working against him
        and MAGA.

        POTUS has promised he would drain the swamp. He read The Snake at every rally. He was also focused on the illegal border jumpers issue. Now there is a new, unrecused, AAG Whitaker in place. I know we are anxious to see more action on these fronts, but I say “All in due time..”

        We are in a fantastic spot to continue to MAGA, as people the world over are realizing how the New World Order’s oppressive policies threaten their own national sovereignty. Many nations are jumping on the MAGA bandwagon.

        It helps not to watch the fake news as they minimize or ignore these monumental achievements. But they are right there for the entire world to see!

    Viktor Vekselberg is being designated for operating in the energy sector of the Russian Federation economy. Vekselberg is the founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Renova Group. The Renova Group is comprised of asset management companies and investment funds that own and manage assets in several sectors of the Russian economy, including energy. In 2016, Russian prosecutors raided Renova’s offices and arrested two associates of Vekselberg, including the company’s chief managing director and another top executive, for bribing officials connected to a power generation project in Russia.

    Now that I have a college aged niece who spouts utter nonsense every chance she gets;
    whenI find a site like this it REALLY helps me understand the nonsense, and we can have an actual debate, about why she believes the nonsense.

    Snip*The persistence of Postmodern ideas, despite their fundamental emptiness, is only partly due to their confusing nature. Within the academy, their acceptance is taken as a sign of membership in the intellectual elite, where their incoherence can posture as profundity. In this environment, the smug hatred for traditional culture can be palpable, and angry dismissal of their jargon as bullshit only fuels their sneering disdain while they indoctrinate another class. Why does this nonsense not go away? Because it is nonsense, only no one can see clearly enough because the texts make no sense, and universities made it the coin of the realm. It isn’t the failure of philosophy that matters here; it is how a failed philosophy became the basis of social standing within the nation’s trusted thought leaders.

    I thought someone here may appreciate the site- very illuminating!

    RR gets sent to Dubai, presents keynote at INTERPOL and calls out Russia in the process??

    This is rich.

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recently traveled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to deliver the keynote address at the 87th INTERPOL General Assembly.

    The Deputy Attorney General’s remarks focused on the opportunities and challenges faced by law enforcement in the cyber age, and emphasized the need for member nations to uphold and advance the rule of law. Although the Internet “holds immeasurable promise as a repository of ideas, and as a forum for speech and commerce,” he stated, it also can be “exploited by wrongdoers” “to damage information systems, steal data, commit fraud, violate privacy, attack critical infrastructure, and sexually exploit children. They also launch misleading schemes to influence people’s opinions, seeking to foment division and disrupt democratic processes.” In light of the risks posed by “malicious actors [who] use the Internet for evil ends,” the Deputy Attorney General called out those nations—like Russia—that have refused to extradite cybercriminals and instead have recruited them to carry on their crimes safe from international criminal process.

    “Ann is absolutely right. She saw this problem decades ago and has been a clear, persistent, knowledgeable voice. It’s not personal, it’s saving our country. There are many voters who did not like Trump but voted for him because he promised to build the wall, secure the border, restore our sovereignty.”

    Too bad Oldschool did not bother to read the comments at the top of the page where the following information was posted:
    Jun 02, 2018 · “A 14-mile section of President Trump’s border wall is under construction in San Diego….”

    “At 20 miles long, the segment being built at the Santa Teresa border entry point is a good start. But Trump has repeatedly said he wants the wall to cover 1,000 miles of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico…”

    Santa Teresa and San Diego are 577 miles apart so these are two different sections of wall. THESE WALLS GOING UP ARE 18 to 30 FEET HIGH WALLS not fences!

        • Jim in TN says:

          Bush authorized 700 miles of wall. Much of what Trump has succeeded in getting funding for is repairing or improving or finishing what Bush started. Don’t know if there is additional wall being built or not. It all matters.

          If jerks like Coulter would have focused their ire on those who failed to support Trump’s attempts to get funding, instead of on Trump, they may have been able to force them to behave. It has happened before. Instead, by attacking Trump, they insidiously support those who opposed Trump.

          Funny that. If she really wanted the wall, why tear down Trump instead of those who stopped Trump?

  17. MakeAmericaGreat says:

    When I read the other day that Schiff was hiring experts in forensic accounting and money laundering (think it was), I recalled some old posts here on Treehouse from a commenter named oldiadguy. Here’s a link to one of them:

    In that comment, iad says that Felix Sater is a “ticking time bomb” for Trump. Who is Sater?

    Sater is supposedly a childhood friend of Michael Cohen. Sater was born in Russia. Sater had been (don’t know if he still is) a business associate of Trump’s, I think. He also, apparently, was an intelligence asset.

    If Schiff and the House Dems go after Sater (to attack Trump), they will do so with the “cover” of the witch hunt being part of the “Russia investigation.” Here is the reason for that, among others:

    “FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.”

    The “Russians buy Trump apartments” and “Trump sold to Russian oligarch’ angle.

    Is any of this legitimate or relevant to the 2016 election? Doubtful. But that doesn’t mean that the witch hunt won’t bring it up to try to hurt Trump. Also, I believe, Fusion GPS’ Glenn Simpson has apparently done a fair amount of research on Sater. So Simpson and his Dem allies are ready to go on that line of attack, it seems.

    Not trying to be a doomsdayer here, just giving people a heads up on where things might be headed come January.

    Just a thought on Mueller Investigation versus upcoming House Dem Investigations.

    Are the Dems going to go berserk on Trump with investigations? Absolutely.

    I’m most concerned about Mueller, however, because Mueller (I think) is the person who can provide cover for the Dems to impeach Trump. Because the special counsel is supposed to be some kind of ‘neutral arbiter’ (even though that’s a farce here) and the Dems do not have to necessarily take a political hit if they act on something handed to them by Mueller.

    However, if the Dems do their own witch hunt that’s blatantly partisan and one-sided and try to impeach Trump from that, it’s unlikely to have the same effect with the public. And it would be a lot harder for Dems to make the case then. And it’s much likelier that they would pay a direct political price for doing so.

    Of course, a real threat is the House Dems working in concert with Mueller. Which seems like it will be happening as soon as the new Congress begins. And this is one reason, among others, you keep Mueller going as long as you can (if you’re a Dem).

    Unless Trump is impeached, my guess is the Dem investigations will mostly be a continuing opposition research dump and smear of Trump heading towards 2020. Much as Fusion GPS provided before the election, as Comey and Mueller have provided since the election, and so forth. Basically a 4-year PR campaign to smear Trump if you cannot remove him from office, to sink his chances at reelection.

    I’m not happy about that, of course. But I don’t fear the smear as much as I fear Trump possibly being impeached. And I think Mueller has to be involved for impeachment to take place. The House Dems, in my mind, are not likely to be able to get that done unless Mueller is still in play.

    $1.5 billion spent on vessels with “no operational capability”
    By Matt Potter, Nov. 23, 2018

    The Navy’s fleet of 51 attack submarines, a portion of which is based in San Diego, is suffering from a series of “significant maintenance delays and operating and support cost expenditures,” that could jeopardize the national defense, according to an audit by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

      Part and parcel of the “fat Leonard” scandal. The U.S. navy is commanded by an excessive number of grifters and rent seekers and the officer class is a sewer in the midst of a secular nation. We have long lost our Christian teachings

      “The US Navy is now investigating more than 60 admirals and hundreds of other Navy officers because of their possible involvement in a bribery and fraud case that has become the worst corruption scandal in the service’s history.

      As the Washington Post’s Craig Whitlock reports, the admirals caught up in the so-called “Fat Leonard” scandal allegedly attended fancy meals — and post-dinner romps that sometimes included prostitutes and lots of alcohol — throughout Asia, paid for by a defense contractor named Leonard Glenn Francis. Francis is already in jail in San Diego because he pleaded guilty in January 2015 to charges of bribery and fraud; his bribes and fraudulent invoices helped him overcharge the Navy for his services by around $35 million. He’s now cooperating with authorities.

      In total, 440 active-duty and retired sailors are currently under scrutiny for possibly violating ethics rules in their dealings with Francis’s company, Glenn Defense Marine Asia. So far, criminal charges have been filed against 29 people, with at least one retired rear admiral serving prison time.”

    Sundance and Friends!

    What do you think Trump Team should do, force Mueller to show his report, or have acting AG for Mueller to show him everything he has on Trump in 3 days.

    I’m thinking it would be wise if Trump forced his hand, and boxed Mueller in, maybe releasing FISA and other docs showing corrupting of FBI/DOJ/CIA and “frame job”, and also have acting AG start arresting people this week.

    Dragging it to Jan 4th , seems like a mistake. I can understand that Trump was not sure he would win both House and Senate, so he could delay until after Jan 4th, if he wanted, but it didn’t turn out that way.

    What do you guys think? Trump Team should expose the “scan” and expose Mueller and the 17 angry dems and Obama fbi/doj/cia … NOW or wait?


    • Dutchman says:

      jack, i’ll ‘bite’;
      First off POTUS Trump shouldn’t DO anything, with regard to Mueller, as it would be seen as ‘obstruction’ of an ongoing investigation.
      The Acting AG, on the other hand, has a variety of options, as it is now HE, and not Rosie, that is ‘overseeing’ the Mueller investigation.

      The ? Still hanging in the air, that has us ALL on the edge of our chairs, is WHAT WILL AAG DO?

      He could go bold, and shut it down.
      IMHO, unlikely.

      However, he has other less,..’bold’ options. He could ‘free up Horowitz, to issue his report on Fisa and unmasking, free from the editorialising put in by Rosie.

      He could, as an administrative matter, simply cut of Muellers funding.

      He could demand a written report, or a status report,…he definetly has options.

      I have already posted, I am very sceptical that VSGDJT gets ANY political advantage, or ‘capital’ from releasing the kraken, and it MAY even be politically harmful.

      On the other hand, he MAY gain leverage, by having the cards in his hand, and NOT playing them.

      Personally, while I’d love to see Hillary in leg irons, and Obummer too, not sure it would benefit MAGA, ay leadt in tje short term.

    Okay, our guys in this fight must stop being punching bags for the other side. Our guys can and *should* play the same game. A white hat senator or rep, or a conservative watchdog group (JW?), should file a complaint with the Ofc of Spcl Counsel against John Kerry for Hatch Act violations. Unlike the “possible” violations the American Oversight group postulated, Kerry’s violations are actual, not possible.

    I can’t be the only one quite fed up with those in power on our side not taking any shots back at these criminals, liars, and sociopaths. In fact, I almost wish the shooting war would start so we could get it on and get it over with. We’re to turn the other cheek if we get slapped. But if someone’s attempting to kill us, we’re obligated to defend ourselves with whatever force is necessary to halt the attack(s), and prevent the aggressor from re-attacking.

    Ka-Boom: Putin, Barack and Hillary’s Skolkovo
    Friday, March 03, 2017
    Diana West

    Thanks to Peter Schweizer, we have a foundational base of information about Skolkovo, “Russia’s Silicon Valley,” but there is so much more to learn about this dangerous, time-bomb of a legacy of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. That foundational base of information is his report, “From Russia, With Money: Hillary Clinton, The Russian Reset, and Cronyism.”

    But there is something much worse than the cronyism that Schweizer shows us. Knowingly or unknowingly, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton presided over the modernization and advance of Russian military, including nuclear, and intelligence capabilities. They did this through their “reset” with Russian which included massive technology transfers from the US and wider West through the establishment of the Kremlin’s Skolkovo “Silicon Valley” project.The Schweizer headline points to Clinton corruption. The worst implications for the American people in the report, however, point to treason. As Schweizer writes, “Skolkovo’s link to the Russian military-intelligence apparatus is not in dispute.” Then what explains the Obama/Clinton administration decision to create it? Gross stupidity or more American betrayal, or some mixture thereof. I don’t see any other possibilities to explain this unreckoned national security disaster, and I don’t think they’re stupid.


    If reporters and opinion writers have been documenting this for years why didn’t AG Sessions act on any of it?

      And, that means Huber hasn’t been doing jack, all this time. And its Sessions appointing of Huber, even more than things like letting the IRS gal off the hook, that (to me) clearly shows he was complicit.

      The Congressional Black Caucus claimed to represent the interests of black communities, but then devolved into a disgusting orgy of corruption. CBC members are the easiest to bribe, the most willing to put out for corporate lobbyists, using the rhetoric of civil rights to cash in on their communities.

      Even when it comes to the #MeToo movement, the CBC proved exceptional with a sexual harassment scandal forcing Rep. John Conyers to retire while Rep. Bobby Scott was accused of harassment by a member of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.
