      So all that hand wringing on the fake news about the Republicans may keep the house, vote out all those rinos, actually worked, We need to stop paying attention to these fake people who keep telling us what we should do, Just vote your conscience, you know they will be doing this again, and nothing happens to them, they influenced the midterms, and the Alabama race, but it’s ok, they’re not Russian.

      Sad that his tactic works so well.
      If anyone has been observant, We have a lot of new posters here in CTH who were (and still are but to a lesser extent post-midterms) saying the same things as Reid Hoffman’s Trolls. The exact same things.

      Constantly whining about PDJT and creating internal dissension here in the treehouse. Saying they’re not going to vote because they’re fed up, sick and tired, blah blah blah. Or telling us that the midterm was a sure thing for so many races where it really wasn’t. The lack of sufficient Republican votes put races into such close margins that the DimmicRAT fraud operatives were able to manufacture enough votes to win.

      Lesson should have been easy. Vote your conscience and ignore ANYONE who casts any doubt. Too many people don’t trust their instincts because of years of “compliance training” by the Establishment MSM.

  3. Of course just like the republicans they never really wanted border security, but they no that the majority of voters do so they preach it before elections. None of them ever expected to have to deal with a president that actually meant what he said before an election. Busted or what?

    I have to get this off my chest. More than the disingenuousness of blaming PTrump for the shutdown, I’m beyond fed up with the media/dem narrative of the poor federal workers. Hey, guess what? I DON’T GIVE A SHIZ ABOUT THE FEDERAL WORKERS!!!

    Now, many of them are fine people – but I have my own problems. These folks, on the other hand, are getting an extra vacation during the holiday season, which will be paid for. All they have to do is enjoy themselves and wait until they start getting some whopping paychecks with back-pay.

    It’s practically impossible to get fired once you’re hired by the US gov. There’s one known risk, where you might have to wait for your paycheck while you earn money doing nothing on the taxpayer dime – a shutdown. And in this case, POTUS gave plenty of warning it might happen.

    If you can’t support yourself for 2 months (let alone 2 weeks) while waiting for your guaranteed paycheck from the Fed’s, I have no sympathy. You’re irresponsible and living beyond your means.

    The media/dem’s are completely out of touch with the majority of Americans. Most of us don’t have “job security.” Most will never have cushy benefits like the federal workers do. Many have crappy hours, and work straight through the holidays. We’ve all been warned to try to save enough to get by for a couple months in case we lose our jobs – or fall ill.

    If these fed workers are having trouble paying their mortgages or feeding themselves after less than 2 weeks, they can get off their arses and get their hands dirty. I have coworkers who work fulltime, yet can’t make ends meet. They don’t qualify for assistance, so they clean houses in their spare time. I’m sure many of you know folks who work hard at a regular job, but also try to do what they can for some extra income.

    The Dem’s & MSM are totally removed from how most Americans live, work, and think. Yet they trot out people to give sob stories about how the shutdown has caused them to be unable to eat out as much, or take their kids to the movies. Shut. Up.

      I’m an ex fed and never minded shutdowns for the points you make.
      But even if they have no savings, the federal employee credit unions are giving them zero percent interest loans against their future back pay. So they essentially won’t even have the inconvenience of delayed income.

        AND they can apply for unemployment.

        I know GS employees on the military side that are pissed that the military is funded and they can’t get a paid vacation like their non-military counterparts.

        Plus…with “800,000” non-paid federal workers, we sure don’t hear a lot of bitching from them.

        Just wow. I don’t know any fed employees who don’t know how lucky they are, but the media sure is trying to push the case for the Dem’s. Now they’re reporting stories of not being able to buy food to feed their children, and losing their homes.

        In a couple of weeks? No sympathy for those idiots. Not Orange Man Bad’s fault.

          I am GLAD the Dems are trying to generate sympathy (with the American people) for the ‘poor, innocent federal workers’, while POTUS is trying to generate sympathy for families who have lost family members directly as,a result of the actions of illegals, as well as indirectly thru drugs, and even for the migrants,who are so ruthlessly exploited.

          Thats a compare/contrast I’ll take (POTUS’s side) ANY DAY.

          Whats even better, you got two hacks in Pelosi and Schumer, who have never developed the,skills to ACTUALLY fight and win.

          After all, with a complicit Rino partner, all they have done for many years,is have staged, phony fights. That doesn’t give you the experience to REALLY fight, and so they are totally out of their element.

          AND IT SHOWS

    Below is the email I sent to my Congresswoman and Senator today. It would take about 5 minutes to find the website for you to contact yours, cut and paste this message, and submit.

    I am contacting you to voice my support for the Border Wall proposed by President Trump and to ask that you state for me your position on the matter.

    I support erecting a physical barrier along key portions of the border with Mexico. First, it seems only common sense that a sovereign nation requires a secure border, and it is equally clear that the USA does not have a secure southern border. Second, the cost of the wall is far less than the cost of the illegal immigration that is made possible by the lack of a secure southern border and sensible immigration policies and law. The cost of the wall has been described as being $5 to 6 billion, while the annual cost of illegal immigration is much greater. The report entitled The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers (Federation for American Immigration Reform, September 2017) estimated the net cost to American taxpayers at $116 billion per year. I know this value has been criticized as inaccurate, but my understanding is that one of the primary facts underlying that criticism is that there is significant uncertainty on the actual number of illegal immigrations, which merely serves to underscore the extent to which the southern border is insecure and illegal immigration is out of control.

    Please confirm your support for President Trump’s border wall. If you do not support President Trump on this matter or have “strings attached” which undermine his position, please explain your position to this constituent. I look forward to hearing from you on this matter.

    TMZ put up some video of Ginsburg leaving her DC apartment to to somewhere. It’s not the best but you can see that she’s in a wheelchair. She then rises up into more of a standing position but I get the feeling she’s in some kind of special chair that stands her up, because as she is moved closer to the car it looks like she’s rolling, not walking. She then has trouble getting into the car, she has to go in backwards, all hunched over, then pivot, and then someone lifts her legs into the car. I think Ginsburg can’t even walk at all. TMZ says she was leaving her apartment at 9am, but she didn’t go to the Supreme Court. Probably a doctor appointment.

    The recent Revelations about Barr and Mueller being close friends feels like flashing red warning lights.

    However, at the same time I am aware that Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing strongly support the Barr nomination and have known Barr for 25 years. In fact, I think I read DiGenova may be the one who recommended Barr to Trump. DiGenova is also a strong critic of the Mueller investigation.

    It’s confusing and hard to reconcile.

    Here is the op-ed DiGenova and Toensing wrote last month supporting Barr:

      Someone’s gaslighting somebody.

      If you get back to basics, DiGenova has been far, far more consistent in support of the President than Lindsey Graham. But someone needs to press diGenova on this purported long, strong friendship between Mueller and Barr. Why are we only now hearing it from Graham?

    Should anyone care for a respected, educated, and well-informed opinion re: Spygate, Team Mueller, et al, one could not ask more than to read Jed Babbin at The American Spectator.

    Mr Babbin has a slightly different view of SpyGate and Team Mueller. Mr Babbin believes they have already succeeded.

    “the FBI and the Justice Department have succeeded in the most significant coverup in American political history. The abuses of power and crimes they have succeeded in covering up are not only against the law: they are crimes against our system of law and government. They were perpetrated by employees of the government, under color of law, with the intention of affecting the outcome of an election.”

    “The stain on our system of justice and the 2016 election created by the abuses of power and probable crimes committed by FBI and DoJ officials during and after the 2016 presidential campaign will not be erased. Their coverup has succeeded.”

    Should one care to listen rather than read a lengthy piece, Mr Babbin is intervfiewed by John Batchelor tonight, in two parts.

      Excellent article. I still don’t think Trump, who surely knows all the crimes done against him, will sit back and let this corruption pass. I don’t know how you expose this, but if anyone can find a way to … it will be Trump.

    Although the official NK press has been rather silent over Kim3’s birthday bash in Beijing, The Global Times (CCP mouthpiece) headlines with: “Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un hold talks, reaching important consensus”. The US-China Trade Talks relegated to a second feature.

    (Excerpt) “In a cordial and friendly atmosphere, the two leaders had an in-depth exchange of views on China-DPRK relations and issues of common concern, and reached important consensus.

    The two sides agreed to make joint efforts to push for continuous new development of China-DPRK relations in the new era, constantly advance the political settlement process of the Korean Peninsula issue, bring more benefits to people of the two countries, and make positive contribution to peace, stability, prosperity and development of the region and the world.”


    Many suspect that Xi’s birthday present was most likely a big fuel shipment (evading sanctions) to DPRK, something they did after the third meet and greet in Beijing.

    I suggest President Trump direct his staff to immediately compile the list of 4,000 murder victims, age, city; murderer; and possibly a brief description of the crime.

    Then post it in multiple formats.
