      God bless Senator Paul.It is inconceivable that only one Republican Senator stood to support our President.It is in our national interest to bring our troops home for several reasons; the cost in American lives and treasure without an end or accomplished mission in sight is far too great.The money spent fighting for corrupt foreign entities is needed at home to fight those who invade our nation in order to destroy it from within,and last but certainly not least,it is always prudent to allow Muslims to kill other Muslims unfettered and unobstructed.

It does not matter that McConnell was such a craven coward as to attach this BS to the Bill authorizing aide to our allies in the Middle East. ALL 3 go back to POS status in my book. As for Ted Cruz, count on me to vote to primary your sorry butt.

      My feeling is that Trump made a big mistake quoting the Drudge Headline! Big Mistake! why?

      I was mediating the other day, and the thought came “Teflon Don” referring to Donald Trump . And I came out of Mediation, and had the gut feeling that this label will be the way Trump’s Enemy’s can bring Trump down!

      “Telflon Don” … is a term used for Mob Head Pin!

      Finally, the Enemy came up a NAME for Trump … and Trump just used it right before his speech tonight for the first time today! (Trump may have fallen in the nick-name trap today, just like the flamboyant Malfia head used it a number of years ago. He was a smart dresser, and people in NY loved him (rascal criminal). The FBI/DOJ lied, using the same type tactics they used to bring down the DON!

      The media will start painting Trump with this NAME! And the way to take down the MOB King Pin is the FBI/DOJ/Mueller!

      I was going to post my hunch 2 days ago, but decided NOT TO PUT IT OUT there, so the Enemy doesn’t use it. So I didn’t post it anywhere!

            Well the mafia imagery has been an old attack. That was stuff never Trumper and Hillery through at him back in Primaries and presidential it did not stick.

            I mean they can try and recycle the story line just I don’t think it is going to work as that attack has been used 2 or 3 times now.

            Maybe I should sometime record the NEVER TRUMP and dem attacks from 2015 to 2017 when he was sworn in.

            For example Glenn beck in August made accusation the Melinia Trump was a porn star and that he had the photos and ran with that on his show for a month. <—- he should be sued for that attack and should feel lucky Trump does not listen to his show as he would of been probably if that was the case.

            This is the garbage people forget was pushed some 2 years ago. The mafia stuff was pushed back then how he was construction and no way he did not have some ties with mafia as a result yet none ever really surfaced.

            just look up "Trump mafia ties" in a google search you will see tons of articles writen by news services on the subject that never stuck.

        Reagan was our First Teflon POTUS. Actually, I think Washington and FDR were before him but the term was first applied to Reagan. This article below has an interesting graph showing the relationship between unemployment numbers and approval. When bellies are full, people are happy!

        Obama also display some teflon abilities as POTUS but I think this was due to the media’s Very hard work to create and maintain a narrative, to the unity that Dems do so well & to the shelter than being half black gave him.

          I think there are several reasons that President Trump is “teflon” like:
          1) so much of what the media and uniparty think ought to stick is just fake news and we know it
          2) the economy is strong
          3) President Trump does not pretend to be something he is not so when truth come out such as his love life/marriages – we already know and he has already been open about it
          4) He already owns the downside of what they try to throw at him. He says, sure that is true but… and explains the upside
          5) President Trump is still pursuing the goals he set out as promises in the campaign and has Already fulfilled many. It is too late for them to convince he won’t do what he said because he already has done so much

              Maybe I have just given away my age that I automatically think of Reagan v. the newer uses of the term with mafia. “Teflon” was used many times for Reagan as the Dems and media were frustrated with his consistently high ratings that he enjoyed as the economy revved (except for the Iran Contra scandal). They tried hard to tarnish him but did not succeed.

              And, yes, this site has great contributors and writers from whom I have learned much! This site has truly changed my life in many ways as I am now more informed, more involved and more effective.

        TOP DEFINITION
        the teflon don
        Nickname given to John Gotti because he was charged with different crimes multiple times but he was never convicted (before he was finally convicted). The charges would never stick, hence the name.
        The teflon don was responsible for the beginning of the end of the gambino crime family because of his big mouth.

        They will be sorry – you really think PT does not know about this – he grew up in NYC – he had to deal with the unions to build his buildings – do not sell him short – he is so far ahead of these knuckleheads – it would make your head spin – PT also knows about Drudge – and that he gets everything wrong – no mistake, jack – believe me

        BTW…Gotti was silenced – PT does not have to say anything about any of the players – only what they themselves reveal – easy peasy – they will hang themselves – just watch

            By identifying from where the term came – he has outed Drudge – he does not need to play their games – remember – he has names for them all – maybe – he got a ‘nudge’ from ‘drudge’ – the Dims have skeletons in their closets far worse than they could ever pin on PT – and he knows about them – all of them – even the worst of criminals make mistakes – how they get caught – they will hang themselves – look at the outrage about NY Law – Virginia Law – the LSM had to change the narrative because people were upset – now – it is the ‘blackface’ smear – and the ‘sexual assault smear’ – why – because people are seeing the culture of death the Dims are promoting – they are seeing they care more about illegals, drugs, and human trafficking than they do about the American people – believe me – PT knows – that is why they fear him – that is why they want to get rid of him – common sense – imho

    ——————————————————————-

    Dear Senator Feinstein,

    In spite of our recent disagreements, I still pray to G-d that you will ultimately see the light and remember your oath to protect the American citizens, country and the constitution.

    I want to see you:

    1- Release the names and dollar amounts of congress people that have used tax payer funds to hush up sexual harassment on Capitol Hill! Any and every sexual predator must be exposed and expelled!

    2- Step up to the plate and demand in public that you believe all women’s claims of sexual harassment, like you did with Judge Kavanaugh. The lieutenant governor in Virginia has been accused of sexual harassment by a woman represented by Mrs. Blasey’s former legal team and I have not seen any visible signs of support for this unfortunate woman, by any Democrats. Is it perhaps, that it is excusable to commit a crime when you are a democrat? As a former, life-long democrat, your lack of action is very hypocritical. But I’m starting to expect this type of behavior. You did leak Glenn Simpsons testimony after taking too many meds!

    3- Build the wall already! You used a bit of fake news in your last reply to me as a reason not to support the Trump wall. You stated Trump desires to build a wall from “sea to shining sea.” You misquote by omission, as he has always stated that a (wall, barrier, fence) is not needed everywhere, as there are natural barriers (rivers, mountains, quick sand) that already prevent entry. If you are going to argue a point, stay classy! I was part of the California democratic wave that voted you and Barbara Boxer into office. You promised us border security!

    If you wish to tell me that walls don’t work, please tell me why we require (walls, fences, barriers) around nuclear facilities and Increased Control Sources of radioactive materials, in addition to alarms, cameras and armed security? Could we just tear down the walls and rely on the sensors? Protect US citizens from this illegal invasion now!

    4- Killing a baby after birth or even in the third trimester is murder any way you look at it. It is disgusting to think that Democrats in New York and Virginia support this practice. I would hope you would come out with a statement that you think it’s disgusting too!

    Have a great day,

    I email her, She emails me,

    Over and over, eternity!

    Given the Typhus outbreak in L.A, I though people would like this comment by George E. Smith from 2010 over at WUWT

    Kings Canyon National Park is adjacent to Sequoia National Park in <b.California's Sierra Nevada mountains. Remember we have the illegals camping in our parks too!

    “”” In other news, Former Governor Sarah Palin is blamed for starting all this by making it Marmot Day instead of Groundhog Day in Alaska. As everyone knows, marmots can’t forecast a darn thing, but they can model. /sarc

    From a KU press release:
    Well that simply is not true; Marmots are great forecasters ! Back in the dark ages; round about the time when the Chinese invaded Mongolia; those northern nomadic tribes were great hunters and trappers; and traded in furs, including Marmots.

    Once in a while; every few years or so, a Trapper would come back into town from his trap rounds; and tell the villagers that he had observed some Marmots up on a mountain that were all acting silly as if they were drunk on something.

    At that news; the villagers would collect up all the recently collected pelts, in the town center, and burn the whole lot up; then they would burn the entire village to the ground; and move off into some adjacent valley, and start all over again.

    Nobody knew why; it was just part of the tribal lore that they had learned from their ancestors; the Gods would be angry if they didn’t follow the ritual.

    So when the Chinese invaded, and took over the place, and confiscated all the furs for themselves to send back to China; nobody thought to mention the ancient traditions that must be followed; and so when the Marmots started acting silly again; nobody dared to tell their Chinese masters, that they had to burn the town down.

    The furs went back to China; along with the Bubonic Plague that the Marmots were the vector for; and those furs subsequently made it to Europe; and the great Plagues took off in Europe.
    So Marmots are great predictors; if you know how to read them.

    Every now and then the ground squirrels in the Kings Canyon National Park, all come down with Bubonic Plague and they have to close regions of the Park to campers. Plague needs a burrowing rodent like vector that hibernates through the winter; so the fleas that carry the virus don’t all die during the winter cold.”

    “I hope it’s Biden,” Trump said in regards to 2020. “Biden was never very smart. He was a terrible student. His gaffes are unbelievable. When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.”
