      I agree. It’s been 2 years and other than a new tax bill, believing in trust the plan, silent Sessions, OIG Huber, White Hats/Black Hats, Clinton skulduggery, border wall, Russia Russia Russia, leverage have gotten us nowhere. We are still on square 1 and now the House goes democratic. What I believe in is exactly what I see: notta! But the dems will certainly do what they have advertised: endless House investigations and a movement to impeach. What I do see is that Speaker Ryan and the Senate Majority Leader, other than judicial approvals, have done nothing to advance Trump’s agenda. Where were they on the campaign trail?

              dissent, spoke at a supermarket to a lady from the Central Valley and we said yes, we do want to secede but CA democrats won’t let us. We are close to the Central Valley and want to secede together. We are tired of dictators, illegal votes, higher taxes and nothing replaced or repaired but the money “disappears”, and the local newspaper lauding Newsom who we know will be twice as bad as moonbeam. Too many aliens voting and can even get a license to practice law or run for office! Many thousands of people and businesses have already left this state. We have requested sending the military and ICE here to stop “sanctuary” anything as illegal as well, so mayors and governors must be fined and n jail and better yet in prison. We did not vote for sanctuary anything but in a dictatorship you don’t get to vote for what’s right and win. We know many republicans votes did not get counted so the could declare the democrat winners. Enough already. Send the military with weapons to take back this state and imprison the traitors of which there are many in this state. Should do the same n Texas and AZ so they can get back to being real states again.

            Flepore,

            While Jim Jordan is correct that the border wall and RR are the two remaining pressing topics or issues for this House in 2018 and while I always look sooooooooo forward to your posts; I have one question for you on each of the above named topics.

            On the Border Wall…According to Numbers USA, 600,000 illegals came into the country through catch and release in 2017. If this 600,000 illegal populace, through chain migration brings an average of 5 additional family members and if 78% apply for some form of assistance, that’s an additional 2.4mm illegals on the dole and onto the democrat voting roles. The Democrats know this and will do everything to fight the wall in both the House and the Senate! And…if these illegals are “assigned” to live in the “correct states” like AZ, FL, TX, OH, MI, VA, NC…then those states will turn blue in 2020. Yes, I know the illegals are NOT supposed to vote but someone has this list and I guarantee you these individuals are voting, have voted and will keep voting “D”. Are you fearful of this intentional action and this voting math?

            On the topic of RR:
            If VSGPOTUS is telling the House not to continue down the investigation path or he will unleash investigations on them for the crimes of LEAKING classified information etc… doesn’t this suggest VSGPOTUS knows the details behind the DEEP STATES’ actions and who did what when, including RR? OF COURSE, he knows!

            Therefore, if VSGPOTUS knows the crimes committed by each of them (including but not limited to RR, Comey, Lynch, Yates, McCabe, others ) does VSGPOTUS have an obligation as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer to act expeditiously? (versus holding the information close to the vest for timely leverage?)

            I do smell the coffee, the roses, the fresh air, and I remain thankful for MAGA and VSGPOTUS; however, I don’t think anyone can afford another 2 years or even 2 months MORE of these criminal investigations!

            Other than badgering our Congress Kritters and Senate, what else can we do here? (OK this is question number 3).

              A nice set of questions. I agree, the intent is to change the voting demographics to Socialist. This coupled with the illegal voting practices and he apparent indifference of the DOJ and FBI will insure their intent. Criminal investigations without prosecution as exemplified by Hillary Clinton. Tells us, that all we are watching is a stage show.

              If President Trump is able to save them from themselves, he will deserve a place on Mount Rushmore.

              Why don’t WE the real Government don’t get it together and close down Congress comletely and start fresh. Hire employees to represent us and remain in the state/city/
              district and use real time video for business. This is the way we keep an eye on our employees. We have allowed them to call themselves the government, but they are NOT but only the Legislative Dept. and nothing more. No come useless committees ending n nothing done, no more spending our tax money without our authorizing same, no more cheap meals/haircuts or expenses for Lord knows what. Yes, time to take back the reins and own our Republic once more. The empty buildings n DC can be rented out, sold, made into clinics or apartments, and we make money to help bring down the national debt the 2 in 1 parties have caused to rise and rise and rise, and they will have to cough up money they have been holding in shall we save “reserve” and bring that out NOW and the the Wall will get built, permanently removed ACA and no more delaying on that either, readjusting the 14th Amendment back to its real meaning, working with ICE and Trump to remove all aliens whether from Latin America, the ME, the Asian countries, the EU, Africa and clear the stench from our soil. We we don’t remember who are are under the Constitution, then we won’t get the rewards we are seeking. We must work with Trump to MAGA and not depend on him to do it all. We have been blessed by God to have a real American-loving leader so let’s know blow it all to pieces. Or as the saying goes you are either with us or you are not. This is our land and we must protect it and keep it not allowing aliens to enter from either N or S, nor on the East Coast ports by boats.

              Those 600K came in illegally! There is no chain migration for them. I work for the NYC DOE. We have been hemorrhaging kids like crazy over the past two years. Close to 25K. Many are self deporting. Plus ICE is picking them up left and right. The Hispanic vote is a myth for Democrats. I have to find data I saw last night. As legal Hispanics reach older ages, they vote just as much for a Republican as they do for a Democrat.

              As for Rosenstein and this BS investigation, read this thread by Larry. He lays out exactly the game plan our President is using. He is BRINGING IN AN ARMY OF MAGA JUSTICES to preserve his legacy and eventually overwhelm the Federal Judiciary.

                The Repubs set up the mid term losses by the 40 + vacancies and retirements———and left POTUS with too much ground to cover. He opted to defend the Senate to keep his judge appointments safe,

                I believe he allowed the blatant fraud in Florida to be exposed and the Feds have watched many other areas—-so lets wait and see. I know they will be looking hard at Eastern NC, as they have filed already but agreed to hold off til after the mid-terms. Luckily we lost no Republican seats in the House from NC.

                  NC Patriot, one thing I am enjoying and I think this was Trump’s plan as he thinks miles ahead of us and democrats was for democrats would be vote cheating and taking over the House, but most of what they want should die in the Senate as they have the majority needed and McConnell better make sure that we stop/block their ridiculous plans and get on with the 51 votes and stick to the democrats. Also, I think Trump saw that many of the young newbies coming in January will cause a fight with the oldies and we will see a lot of nasty stuff happening within the DNC. Just think not even in Congress yet and Cortez protests against Pelosi. That is like lighting the fuse to a bomb and I don’t think the newbies will win much but will cause a lot of concentration on the democrats in the House to lose a lot more than they thought. Impeachment? No way, Jose. Impeaching your members like Maxipad would certainly be beneficial to the current democrats in Congress unless they would like Cortez n that position, she who can’t make 2 and 2 = 4. Infighting starting already so more popcorn, please.

              Thank you.
              The pity part after the elections was understandable but this constant pessimism is wearing (AS DESIGNED)

              President Trump ONLY GAVE US A CHANCE and NOT a promise that he could turn around our head long rush over the cliff. — So I’ll take it and do what I can to help.

              TWO POINTS

              First the clock on the STATUTE of LIMITATIONS STOPS with an indictment.

              […]The phrase “statute of limitations” refers to the time period within which formal criminal charges must be brought after a crime has been committed…. Therefore, in most instances, prosecutions are barred if the defendant can show that there was no indictment or other formal charge filed within the time period dictated by the statute of limitations….

              The statute of limitations runs until an indictment or information is found and returned to the court […] https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL31253.pdf

              Second as the Ninth Circus has shown again and again JUDGES have a lot of power. President Trump has tweeted he may be able to fill the Federal Judgeships so over 50% are CONSERVATIVE.
              ……

              “Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The gavel is passed to the “den of thieves” in January, never for the corrupt individuals to pay the price, rather two more years spent in trying to unseat a president who is the people’s choice. At 79 I thought I had seen it all – but the next day something worse happens. In all my years observing, this I do know – China, Russia not even the border issues – will destroy/control us. If we lose this war on saving the Republic – the traitors will come from within – and most of them are in government positions as we speak.

      This morning on F&F Jim Jordan talked about the fleeting amount of time the House has left to accomplish anything under (so called) Repub majority. He spoke of what SHOULD be done but didn’t mention anything that WILL be done.

      Jordan’s a good man. Too bad he won’t be the Minority Leader. Even more too bad, Paul Ryan didn’t relinquish the Speaker’s seat as soon as he said he wasn’t seeking reelection.

    We must quickly discern the difference between “asylum seeker” and a “I wanna live in your country seeker”. The DC Swamp refuses to make that distinction.

    Also the Swamp has to determine if every human being on Earth has an inherent right to immigrate to the United States. Do current Americans have any say as to who and how many foreigners are allowed into our country?

    In particular, the GOP is terribly frightened to advocate even a modest reduction in incoming immigration numbers because they know (correctly), they will be labeled RAYSIS by “the Media”, which today is so prevalent, so omnipresent, that it is hopeless to fight against it. Of course, many GOPers don’t want to reduce immigration, for their business owning donors want the inflows to continue, which creates an over-supply of labor, thus putting downward pressure on salaries and wages.

      This stopped my mother dead in her tracks when I told her about the caravan over a month ago. She’s a die hard Dem and a Trump hater. She told me that the people in the caravan just want a better life. I asked her how many people we should take in? What’s the limit? 90% of the world’s population live in poorer, more violent, more dangerous conditions than we do here in the US. How many of them are we supposed to take, if being poor and unsafe is the only criteria? Where do we draw the line? And why isn’t Mexico good enough for them? They were offered asylum in Mexico, and according to International Law you are supposed to seek asylum in the first country you reach. Why not live in Mexico?

    As for the Border Funding, I don’t give a RATS ASS what Mitch McConnell wants. I am a fan of the Turtle. Our President will shut part of the government down if the $5 billion dollars is not included in the final Appropriation Bill. The great news is that every other Appropriation Bill was passed and signed by our President on September 30th. This shutdown will only effect HHS.

    With the illegals rushing our Border, let the Democrats tell the American people why they aren’t supporting the funding. THEY WILL ABSOLUTELY GET DESTROYED! Our President will leave that shutdown in place for as long as needed. He will not sign that bill without the funding.

        Interfering in our election by the Brits to help hillary/DNC is effectively an act of war. There is no reason for President Trump to withhold the FISA Warrant and other evidence of british and australian agent collusion. The perps know what they did, names are already known.

        There is no reason whatsoever to keep this evidence of crooked collusion from the US public.

        It is disappointing that President Trump has even protected the “deep state” in the JFK assasination records over half a century ago, After promising to release them for the public and historian evaluation.

        We cut our repub financial support and enthusiasm way back because of the actual corrupt protection of DOJ/FBI/CIA criminal behavior by the republican House and Senate leadership when they had a majority, and President Trump’s refusal to release the corruption/bias evidence, as did many others. PDJT could easily have directed that these materials be provided to Congress in unredacted form, a year ago. Comey and rosenstein and mueller could have been subpoenaed by congress a year ago. This showboating delay behavior is intentional swamp protection.

        Greenwald: It Is Possible Paul Manafort Visited Julian Assange. If True, There Should Be Ample Video and Other Evidence Showing This.

        For obvious reasons, the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London where Assange has been living since he received asylum in 2011 is subjected to every form of video and physical surveillance imaginable. Visitors to that embassy are surveilled, photographed, filmed and recorded in multiple ways by multiple governments – at least including both the Ecuadorians and the British and almost certainly by other governments and entities. Not only are guests who visit Assange required to give their passports and other identification to be logged, but they also pass through multiple visible cameras – to say nothing of the invisible ones – on their way to visit Assange, including cameras on the street, in the lobby of the building, in the reception area of the Embassy, and then in the rooms where one meets Assange.

        In 2015, the BBC reported that “Scotland Yard has spent about £10m providing a 24-hour guard at the Ecuadorean embassy in London since Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claimed asylum there,” and that “between June 2012 and October 2014, direct policing costs were £7.3m, with £1.8m spent on overtime.”

        &

        It’s an especially inexcusable omission for the Guardian not to discuss its significance given that the Guardian itself obtained the Embassy’s visitors logs in May, and – while treating those logs as accurate and reliable – made no mention of Manafort’s inclusion on them. That’s because his name did not appear there (nor, presumably, did Roger Stone’s).

I’m afraid that in the next Congress some Repubs (in leadership) will even stand aside and let the Dems do what they want during any and all investigations. There are too many Repubs in DC who would enjoy Mueller torturing Trump and a final report that leads to an impeachment. Sorry state of affairs, but that’s the way it is. There needs to be a sudden and dramatic environment change caused by an external event. Releasing the redacted docs or a Korean War settlement coupled with a break in the China trade atmosphere etc. Something so dramatic and beyond challenge that even the anti-Trumpers couldn’t say anything.
