    State of the Union:

    National Security at the Borders is not of any concern to the Dems.

    China talks are not talking.

    Syria–more war for Bolton and Bibi.

    North Korea–another in person talk that may clarify what and how Kim will disarm and what and how the US will leave the Peninsula.

    Iran–hybrid war by US underway to topple the government. Come back in ten years and see if it worked.

    Afghanistan–worse each day. Spend more money.

    Russia–forbidden to talk to the Russians. Can’t say more . . .

    All these things are affecting the economy and the stock market negatively.

    None of this is good for MAGA, or 2020, or America.

    DJT needs more prayers and new plans.

        Did you really mean “having to wheel RBG out on a dolly” or in a coffin?
        If she doesn’t show up alive soon this treachery will come to a screeching stop. Chief Justice John Roberts may be playing with Napalm?


        • 🍺Gunny66 says:

          Well a coffin would work also, but the President just requested the Court have an emergency session and decide on the question:

          “Are you an American Citizen?” for the 2020 census.

          This was the issue with a district judge “Blocking” this question.

          Sundance just put up a thread.

          The guy knows how to play:

          First: We get to see if Ginsberg is alive, even then she may not last for the court decision.

          Second: Soon the President can nominate another Justice. put Barrett up.

          Third: Having the citizenship question would take away reps from the Dems. Especially in California.

    4. Paul Manafort Visited Julian Assange Three Times in the Ecuadorian Embassy and Nobody Noticed (Guardian/Luke Harding)
    On November 27, 2018, the Guardian published a major “bombshell” that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had somehow managed to sneak inside one of the world’s most surveilled buildings, the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and visit Julian Assange on three different occasions. Cable and online commentators exploded.

    Seven weeks later, no other media outlet has confirmed this; no video or photographic evidence has emerged; the Guardian refuses to answer any questions; its leading editors have virtually gone into hiding; other media outlets have expressed serious doubts about its veracity; and an Ecuadorian official who worked at the embassy has called the story a complete fake:

    3. CNN Explicitly Lied About Lanny Davis Being Its Source – For a Story Whose Substance Was Also False: Cohen Would Testify that Trump Knew in Advance About the Trump Tower Meeting (CNN)
    On July 27, 2018, CNN published a blockbuster story: that Michael Cohen was prepared to tell Robert Mueller that President Trump knew in advanced about the Trump Tower meeting. There were, however, two problems with this story: first, CNN got caught blatantly lying when its reporters claimed that “contacted by CNN, one of Cohen’s attorneys, Lanny Davis, declined to comment” (in fact, Davis was one of CNN’s key sources, if not its only source, for this story), and second, numerous other outlets retracted the story after the source, Davis, admitted it was a lie. CNN, however, to this date has refused to do either:

    1. Donald Trump Jr. Was Offered Advanced Access to the WikiLeaks Email Archive (CNN/MSNBC)
    The morning of December 9, 2017, launched one of the most humiliating spectacles in the history of the U.S. media. With a tone so grave and bombastic that it is impossible to overstate, CNN went on the air and announced a major exclusive: Donald Trump, Jr. was offered by email advanced access to the trove of DNC and Podesta emails published by WikiLeaks – meaning before those emails were made public. Within an hour, MSNBC’s Ken Dilanian, using a tone somehow even more unhinged, purported to have “independently confirmed” this mammoth, blockbuster scoop, which, they said, would have been the smoking gun showing collusion between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks over the hacked emails (while the YouTube clips have been removed, you can still watch one of the amazing MSNBC videos here).

Per Baseball Reference, nobody with at least 1,000 career innings has a better park- and league-adjusted ERA+ than Rivera’s 205 mark (105 percent better than average) — and it’s not even close (Clayton Kershaw is second, with a 159).”

    Nearly half – 49 percent – said that they see border security as a “serious problem,” while another 36 percent said it was a “minor problem.” Only 16 percent said it is “not even a small priority.”

    • Did the Poll questions online include a question on whether they were a US Citizens or not? I’m Illegals would say that the border is NOT a problem……

      Here in California the State colleges and Universities are giving HIGH “priority” status to
      1. First time college students in families (ie illegals, anchor babies or refugees or student VISA holders)
      2.Low income families on subsidies (ie illegals, anchor babies or refugees or student VISA holders)

      In other words – the US American citizen student is low on the acceptance list. Regardless of grades, HIGH ACT/SAT scores……..they also filter OUT by names – (American names).

    Egard “Answer to Gillette Ad” is a success!

    I was over checking out watches at Egard Watch Company (spouse has birthday coming up) since I loved their “Answer to Gillette Ad” and noticed two things.

    First, they are sold out of almost everything.

    And, they had a message posted:


    The positive response to our message has allowed us to start donating to charities! We will be donating $10,000 USD To the Bob Woodruff Foundation this week! We hope to continue making numerous donations year round. Thank you all for giving us an opportunity to give back.

    Due to the unexpected overwhelming response we are back-ordered on many units. Please bear with us. We are accepting pre-orders as we are making new inventory. The response is beyond appreciated. Every order will be fulfilled. We want to be completely transparent about the wait.

    Speaker disinviting the President from the Constitutionally required annual report to Congress

    John Kerry – and others – calling for our best President to resign, not just publicly but while visiting foreign countries, on a near daily basis

    Catholic schoolboys visiting our nation’s capital for an important event are thrust into a national spotlight and unfairly maligned, threatened, hated …

    These are all symptoms of an irreversible “fundamental transformation.” Apparently electing an anti-American Marxist of 3rd World mindset and behavior WAS enough to rend the nation. It is hard to imagine any of the above mentioned radical actions taking place before the disastrous poseur’s regime. President Trump has tried so hard to be a good and faithful president of ALL Americans, but I don’t see how even he can bridge such an intentionally stoked divide.

        My next door neighbor has pointedly not spoken to me since President Trump’s inauguration.

        Almost my entire circle of friends has turned into a bunch of rabid p***y hat wearing feminists, to the exclusion of reason. Of course, since they base everything they know on what the MSM tells them, it is very difficult to tell them that they are all wrong; they simply don’t believe me, and in fact I think they resent me for supporting President Trump and the agenda that he represents. They probably discuss it behind my back.

        A large number of people have expressed such venom towards my beloved president and his supporters that I can’t bring myself to interact with them at all anymore.

        My local news has happily joined the nationwide effort to report everything to do with Trump with snark, malice, twisting of context, or deliberate omissions. I live in a blue city and I AM AFRAID TO WEAR MY MAGA HAT in public.

          I genuinely feel for you! I live in a similar situation. One mother I had a coffee with started to bash our President and I quickly had to tell her that I proudly voted for him. She began coughing up her coffee (like out of a bad movie). After that, she was pretty icy and well that ended that contact. But the couple of mothers who have an issue with it are really confused as how to argue their points with me because, 1)I’m divorced, so no man influenced my opinion, 2)I have a law degree , 3)I studied at Hillary’s alma mater (she was my commencement speaker! I didn’t shake her hand even back then),4) I lived in several countries in Europe (experienced socialized medicine ) and 5) I speak fluent Spanish because I was born in Puerto Rico. It’s actually really funny! To top it off, I read the Conservative Treehouse and I have learned so much from so many brilliant Treepers!

            Thank you for that Carrie, I too am a retired lawyer but thankfully I am old enough that there was no chance of Hillary being commencement speaker! Ugh! Can’t even imagine.

            You are ahead of the game speaking fluent Spanish, I never wanted to learn Spanish and increasingly resent that I am going to be pushed into it. In America that should be optional, not obligatory. Decades ago we citizenry tried to get the powers that be to make English our official language; too late now of course.

    NetworkDeath Of Russiagate: Mueller Team Tied To Mifsud’s Network

    Good rundown of how RussiaGate was really launched using UK/US Counter Terror personal (not Counter Intel) to launch the Russia Hoax.

    ‘We return, now, to this issue and specifically the research of Chris Blackburn, to place the final nail in the coffin of the Trump-Russia collusion charade. Blackburn’s insights are incredible not only because they return us to the earliest reporting on the role of British intelligence figures in manufacturing the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, but because they also implicate members of Mueller’s investigation. What we are left with is an indication of collusion between factions of the US and UK intelligence community in fabricating evidence of Trump-Russia collusion: a scandal that would have rocked the legacy press to its core, if Western establishment-backed media had a spine.’
