    “Push Their Propaganda” is actually an understatement. The US Government passed a act to allow Propaganda to be used on American citizens, but it does not end their. It seems what passes as our government now thanks to Obama and Congress, allows for the same government, to pay news, outlets and reports for distribution of their Propaganda. Think I am telling you a lie, check it out yourself. Notice how they all seem to be reading from a script!

    Has anyone considered that since America has turned its back on God, that God is turning his back to America and will allow totalitarian Demosocialism as a tribulation?

            Marc, I like to recall the story of Nineveh…when Jonah preached to them, they repented of their wickedness, so God did not destroy them.
            BUT, they later went back to their old ways, and, well, turns out their respite was just a parenthesis.
            I do think the USA was given a gift.
            Remains to be seen what we do with our gift.
            God be with President Trump, and may we continue to pray.

        You are correct – God doesn’t turn His back on individuals who want to be connected to him . . . but “turn His back” may have different meanings depending on your point of view.

        Some people my think God is turning His back by allowing Christians to be killed in the Roman arenas for sport, or used as burning candles by Nero, or killed by the thousands every year by Muslims.

        However, when God says “I will never leave you nor forsake you”, He is speaking about Christian souls. We made be snuffed out well before our 70 years on earth, but we look forward to an eternity with God in heaven. “So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” ”

        So, if God will shortly allow our nation to be taken over by those who are antithetical to Him, we may lose everything, including our lives as a consequence, but He has our souls safely in the palms of His hands.

    Some one soon needs to convince the President that if he does not do something quickly about putting out all the paper work that he has, he will not get a chance again before they impeach him There is an article out today with a poll done by a writer at the HILL, SAYING THAT OVER 40% of people believe Trump should be impeached, my big question again, is what do these people know that I don’t, I didn’t realize that he had done anything wrong Today, I feel sadness in my heart that this is exactly what the left will do if for no other reason than prove they can..
    I hate Obama and I hate Clinton because of what they have done to him.. If I was him I would
    never give in to any of their paper demands I would just throw them in the trash and as for them having any proof What ever he did as a business man years ago can not be held against him as he is the President of the United States.. They are saying that Mueller now wants to sit down With Trump even though he said he would be satisfied with the answered Questions Well now Mueller is making it sound as if because he has other questions He didn’t believe what the President put down as his answer Well MR Mueller take it and stuff it where the sun does not shine and if
    Juelanni allows a sit down with Mueller then he should be disbarred Mueller Comey Obama and Clinton should be put in Gitmo. and the key broken off in the lock so no one can get them out

    Ret. Gen Jack Keane on WSJ/fox slot today, paraphrase: “Without missiles being fired over Japan and Guam and things settled down, it’s hard to negotiate getting a list of missile sites or put pressure.”

    His micro expression? “I can’t believe I just said that.”

    45 wanted to stop the missiles. Mission accomplished!

    Perhaps some uniparty types are starting to hear themselves talk as exampled by Keane’s body language due to VSG 45 making it clear as to the point of war and the point of dialogue. Even if they can’t hear themselves, I know sensible Americans do and that 45 is very good at making the case for his choices on the world stage.

    I’d be surprised if you find this story in the MSM.

    FTA – Concerned about U.S. Coast Guard forces losing a paycheck in the partial government shutdown, President Trump personally urged his team to find a solution that would allow the administration to make this week’s $75 million payroll, according to officials.
    Trump stepped in on Wednesday, calling on top lawyers and staffers to determine if the Coast Guard could make payroll despite being included in the shutdown that has impacted about 25 percent of the government, including the Department of Homeland Security, which houses the Coast Guard.

    FTA – President Trump took a brilliant, gutsy step in confronting China over its parasitic trade strategy, and the signs today are unmistakable that he made the right call.

    Consider two developments in the last few days.

    China’s principal stock market in Shanghai has closed out 2018 with the world’s worst decline. The South China Morning Post in Hong Kong reports:

    Shanghai’s stock benchmark ended 2018 as the world’s worst market performer for a second year, falling 24.6 per cent over 12 months as an unprecedented trade war between China and the United States weighed on the Chinese economy and crimped corporate earnings.

    The city’s key stock index closed the year at 2,493.90, while the benchmark on the smaller Shenzhen bourse fell 33.2 per cent during the period to 1,267.87. The combined capitalisation of the two exchanges fell by US$2.4 trillion to 43.3 trillion yuan (US$6.3 trillion) during the year, overtaken by Tokyo as Asia’s largest equity market.

    “The stock market is often the barometer of a nation’s economic health, and the weakness in China’s A-share market reflects the serious troubles in the Chinese economy,” said Li Wenhui, an analyst for Huatai United Securities.

    Don Surber looks at this data and concludes:

    Chairman Xi’s refusal to compromise with President Trump has cost his country $2.4 trillion so far in 2018.

    That’s enough to build 96 Mexican walls.

    The Nation is an extreme left-wing magazine, and the most widely-read weekly publication of left-wing political and cultural news. They have just published a report that I found interesting: “New Studies Show Pundits Are Wrong About Russian Social-Media Involvement in US Politics: Far from being a sophisticated propaganda campaign, it was small, amateurish, and mostly unrelated to the 2016 election“.

    An extract from the report is below.

    ===========

    Entertaining the possibility that Russian social-media posts impacted the election outcome requires more than just a contemptuous view of average voters. It also requires the abandonment of elementary standards of logic, probability, and arithmetic. We now have corroboration of this judgment…..

    Hillary Clinton was quoted posing what she dubbed the “real question”: “How did the Russians know how to target their messages so precisely to undecided voters in Wisconsin, or Michigan, or Pennsylvania?” In fact, the Russians spent a grand total of $3,102 in these three states, with the majority of that paltry sum not even during the general election but during the primaries….

    There is no indication that the disinformation spread by employees of a St. Petersburg troll farm has had a discernible impact on the US electorate. The barrage of claims to the contrary is but one element of an infinitely larger chorus from failed political elites, sketchy private firms, shadowy intelligence officials, and credulous media outlets that inculcates the Western public with fears of a Kremlin “sowing discord.” Given how divorced the prevailing alarm is from the actual facts—and the influence of those fueling it—we might ask ourselves whose disinformation is most worthy of concern.

    ===========

    When The Nation publishes something like that, it is clear that the “Russia, Russia, Russia” smears are seriously failing.

      Writers for The Nation have a long tradition of supporting everything from the USSR to its successors. Scholarly sorts (including Distinguished Harvard Faculty) have built reputations on such “engagement”.

      They’re correct on muh-Russia; it’s also Party line.
      ZeroHedge frequently carries articles linked to “Strategic Culture”. That’s Putin. So is “Unz” – posing as Orthodox Christianity (Russian State-vetted Orthodox Christianity).

      Of course Russia sponsoring alternative media doesn’t invalidate the content. We get better coverage of the Moslem invasion of Europe from RT and Sputnik than the current EU-crop. Uncle Vlad is still doing the divide-&-conquer routine.

      This does NOT mean Mueller will close up shop. He will just keep widening his investigation forever. Mueller must be terminated because his initial appointment was bogus in all ways.

    Summary: FPC v. Whitaker is a federal constitutional, statutory, and APA challenge to the DOJ/ATF ban on “bump-stock” devices brought President Trump’s ban on “bump stock” devices by executive fiat

    Arguments:

    The President’s Designation of Matthew Whitaker Violated the Constitution’s Appointments Clause
    The President unconstitutionally assigned the Attorney General’s responsibilities to a non-officer
    The President’s designation of Mr. Whitaker violated the Appointments Clause because he is serving as a principal officer
    The Government’s arguments defending Mr. Whitaker’s service under the Appointments Clause are non-responsive
    Applying the canon of constitutional avoidance, the Vacancies Act is fairly read not to give the President the power to appoint a non-confirmed official in these circumstances
    The AG Act automatically designates the Deputy Attorney General as the Acting Attorney General
    The Government’s contrary arguments are unpersuasive

    NYT Report Pushes Credit Card Companies To Monitor Gun Buyers
    In an advocacy piece imperfectly dressed up as a news story, New York Times financial reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin observes that some perpetrators of mass public shootings have bought guns and ammo using credit cards, and asks why credit card companies and banks should not be made to stop this. How? Well, they could “create systems to track gun purchases that would allow them to report suspicious patterns” and “prevent [customers] from buying multiple guns in a short period of time.” Invoking the Patriot Act – you knew that was coming, didn’t you? – the piece goes on to ask why the sweeping financial-snooping powers bestowed on the feds by that act should not be deployed against everyday civilians who purchase more guns than would seem fit for them to buy.

    The piece notes with apparent approval that “several payment systems — including PayPal, Square and Apple Pay — already [have] established rules that ban the sale of guns and gun-related items using their systems” but says no banks have done so. (Following an earlier Sorkin report, Bank of America and Citibank announced that they would discontinue relationships with gun companies – all part of the burgeoning movement that has been called financial no-platforming, in which payments providers like Patreon and PayPal, following pressure groups’ demands, refuse to serve lawful but disapproved clients and causes.)

    Trump’s demise has been greatly exaggerated
    By Kyle Smith
    July 28, 2018 | 9:45am | Updated


    The walls have been closing in on the Trump presidency since the day he was inaugurated, according to liberal pundits.

    [snip]
    This time they’ve surely got him. Pack your bags, Mr. President. The game is up. Because this week we learned that . . . that . . . well, there’s this tape, see, recorded by Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in September 2016, during which the then-presidential candidate discussed setting up a company for the purpose of paying off alleged former paramour Karen McDougal to make her go away.

    Did Trump and Cohen actually pay her off? No, but . . . but . . . c’mon, it would have been a campaign finance violation! If it had happened. Or it was sort of a campaign finance violation once removed, because the company that owns the National Enquirer paid for the rights to the McDougal story but then never ran anything on it, and maybe Trump knew about this!

    Trump-is-doomed stories are one of the media’s favorite fairy tales. Remember when you saw “Peter Pan” when you were 4 and you actually thought that clapping for Tinkerbell would bring her back to life? Pundits think that if they cheer loudly enough for Trump to get eighty-sixed, it’ll happen. His (first?) term in office is more than a third over, and the Very Serious Commentators have been ushering him out the door the entire time. Or at least they’ve been trying to. It turns out that Trump doesn’t pay a lot of attention to the usher-pundits.

    https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/423178-donald-trump-is-completely-transforming-the-dem Washington has long been a stranger to principle … other than the principle of self-advancement. Yet, something new seems to be emerging in the country. Politicians have long felt the need to disguise raw political agendas in the pretense of principle. That pretense is now gone.

    In this age of rage, voters seem to have no patience, let alone need, for leaders speaking of abstract principles. They want immediate, unequivocal action in supporting or opposing President Donald Trump. For Democrats, that unequivocal, all-consuming purpose has led to the abandonment of core unifying values, including many that first drew me to the Democratic Party. While they would vehemently deny it, Trump is remaking the party in his inverse image. This past month has shown just how far that transformation has gone.

    The remaking of the Democratic Party was most evident last week with the reaction to Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria. There was a time when a sizable number of Democrats opposed undeclared wars and unending military campaigns. Now, however, Democrats are appalled that Trump would not continue a war in one of the myriad countries with U.S. troops engaged in combat operations. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the withdrawal a “Christmas gift to Vladimir Putin,” while Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) and others called it “irresponsible” or “hasty.”

    TRUCKERS….
    When the US Swamp Critters ALLOWED Mexican drivers to TAKE jobs from American truckers they put a whole heck of a lot of truckers out of business and lowered the wages for the rest. (I have heard a real earful on that subject)

    AND it was only a few years ago that it happened:

    Now those truckers are FINALLY back to work AND they have ZERO love for those Mexicans that took their jobs. Whose side do you think they will be on if Trump shuts down the border???

    All it would take is blocking the food supply to Washington DC and selected other cities for THREE DAYS…

    Disaster Is Inevitable When America’s Stock Market Bubble Bursts
    Sep 5, 2018

    “Unfortunately, this unusual market strength is not evidence of a strong, organic economy, but of an extremely unhealthy, artificial bubble economy that will end in a crisis that will be even worse than we experienced in 2008. In this report, I will show a wide variety of charts that prove how unsustainable the current bull market is.”

    Not sure why this is suddenly being retweeted like crazy again, nearly 10 days later. I wonder if the DNC got their wires crossed and ordered their bots to retweet the wrong message?

  33. Too bad not ONE of the Republican Senators back our President enough to allow recess appointments by keeping the Senate officially in session. With that amount of support, there just may be enough turncoats to convict if indeed the President is impeached. McConnell is a snake – do not underestimate his hatred of the President.

      I don’t trust the Senate either, including the ones who are only there because Trump campaigned for them and pulled them across the finish line.

      People who have an urge to go into politics mostly – not all of them, but I’d say the vast majority – suffer from delusions of grandeur and a desire for power over others. Their senses of loyalty, morals and ethics are extremely dubious. We simply can’t trust the Senate not to vote for impeachment.

    Democrats: A plague on the nation
    By Patricia McCarthy – December 29, 2018

    The Democrats in office today, and those about to take the majority in the House, are anti-Americans. Of that you can be sure.

    Trump, as the outsider he is, is a grave threat to all of those who believed they were in control in perpetuity. They are ready and willing to do anything, no matter how illegal or immoral, to depose him, to expel him from office.

      Last 2 paragraphs:

      The Democratic Party of today is an abomination. The assault on our constitutional republic began with Woodrow Wilson, and their long-range plan to overhaul what the Founders built is still operational. The left has nothing but contempt for ordinary Americans, especially those who voted for Trump.

      Leftists are dangerous when challenged, like a pack of jackals dismembering its prey. They need to be defeated, indicted, arrested, tried, convicted, and imprisoned. They are a scourge on the nation as founded. They do not love this country; they seek to destroy all that was and is good within it.

        Democrats are irrational communist mental-moral “major malfunctions” that ought to be culled from the herd of rational and healthy humans. Those pussy hatter culls need to be relocated to dumpsters and hauled to the landfill for fulfillment of their Darwin Award.

    Yes she is. (Don’t shoot me some infor is from he who is not to be named)
    The Isreali managed to get a look at Iran’s nuclear program and found they were indeed continuing weapons research.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/papers-stolen-in-a-daring-israeli-raid-on-tehran-archive-reveal-the-extent-of-irans-past-weapons-research/2018/07/15/0f7911c8-877c-11e8-8553-a3ce89036c78_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.9d044a430691

    Praying Medic commented months ago that part of the plan with Uranium One was to ship uranium to Russia BUT also to ‘steal’ some of the uranium and ALSO ship it to North Korea AND Iran. The uranium would have a signature from impurities marking it’s origin as being Uranium from the US mines (and shipped to Russia)

    The hope was either North Korea AND/OR Iran would lob nukes at the USA and start a war involving Russia. The reasoning was once Russia and the USA were involved in lobbing nukes, it would take out the two countries most resisting the lose of sovereignty and the UN could clean up the mess afterwards, declare National Sovereignty ‘Too Dangerous’ and install a world government modelled on the EU.

    This dovetails with my independent research showing the Elite now have enough data on Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Subsequent Weapons Testing as well as Chernobyl that they would not be afraid of a nuclear war. Especially if they had advance notice and were nicely settled in their New Zealand Strongholds ahead of time.

    However I though it would be China (North Korea) lobbing the bombs.

    Remember it was Bill Clinton that gave China the nuclear weapon technology. link
