    POTUS speaks to reporters at Space Force event. Video starts around 8 minutes in and runs about 9 minutes or so.

    The last thing POTUS says to the reporters is hilarious. Don’t want to ruin it for you. But a must watch.

    And today, while at the Douglass Houses with reporters, she got stuck in an elevator
    At issue is that a ton of federal money goes to NYC yet the buildings are in horrible shape. This has gotten the attention of the president:

    Lynne Patton (HUD)

    To those who wanted to know what my “stay in @NYCHA” would accomplish, how about a direct call from @POTUS angry about the inhumane conditions of his fellow New Yorkers when #HUD gives $30 MILLION PER WEEK for repairs. The federal monitor will ensure its being spent effectively!

    Federal housing official @LynnePattonHUD told PIX11’s @monicamoralestv today that President Trump is “angry” over NYCHA conditions. http://via.pix11.com/NdqRM

      They ought to come look at what is going on in the Richmond VA area. It is unbelievable how bad the section 8 apartments are… out of town :management” charging up to $2k per unit and they are not fit to live in. Who ever heard of a dump being worth $2k per month?

      This is a huge scam that could be thrown into the sunlight. Who are these people that own these complexes and why are they charging such high rents without doing any repairs?

      I have seen on the news: no heat, no water, falling ceilings, mice, roaches, sewage backups, outside stairs that crumble when you step on them… MOLD. Unlivable conditions.

      Local news does stories on the apartment complexes just about every week. Always some terrible story. The shocker was learning just how much the rent is for these hovels! Average rent for a very nice apartment is around $800 or so… who the heck would pay $2k for a hovel?

      Taxpayers are being ripped off and poor people are being done a great disservice.

      I really loved the story about Lynne Patton.

      First, the type of person she is:

      She slept on a blow up mattress in the housing building for five days. She talked directly to the people to find out what is wrong. One person wasn’t able to get their shower fixed for 7 years and has to wash up with only the sink. Millions of dollars, but nothing ever got fixed?

      How does Trump know and see everything going on around him? Some CEOs are talented that way.

      From the article:

      “It is a national emergency,” Patton said of NYCHA conditions. “I’ll break the news right now on your show. Yesterday, the president saw me on TV, called Secretary [Ben] Carson and wants to have a conversation about NYCHA.”

      President Trump wants to talk to Patton and Carson as soon as possible about NYCHA. Patton says President Trump was angered about the cost and the conditions inside NYC public housing, and what he saw on television.

      “The president is angry. The President is a New Yorker first and foremost. He wants to know where the money is going, like the residents. And why does it still look like this when we are giving NYCHA money,” said Patton.

      Also, Ben Carson is a quiet man….but he is on top of this. He worked out something with DeBlasio for a Federal Monitor to oversee the problem


      Federal government to impose monitor and shake up top brass at NYCHA


      Although the new plan calls for a powerful federal monitor, it stops short of receivership — which would have amounted to a full federal takeover the system — and what would have been a crushing defeat for de Blasio, who has championed affordable housing in his quest for national stature.

    Today There was a piece on Fox about the Smollette guy and even though Fox leaned the Guy had brought about his own Hoax they have decided to keep him on with the show empire, and this morning again Judge Nap never says anything that is right, but we are suppose to believe what he says sorry He has not been right since Fox fired him for being a trump supporter and when they brought him back he was a real hater. Sorry to but I am done with Fox They are just too stupid to understand what keeping this guy knowing he is a slime bag might mean to some of the Trump supporters .
    I have been wanting to continue to support the President and his campaign but I have heard enough about what the Republicans did and I refuse to support any of those in the senate and
    will support some in the house but I am totally disgusted today. also trying to Remember McCabe is nothing but a liar who is more than willing to take the whole country down with him.
    I am not sure if you give to the Great American Pac if that money goes to help the President and his Campaign or just putting out messages so if anyone knows how I can give just to the President please let me know ok.. Thanks

      rusty, I hear you! Especially about loss of faith in our GOP senate. Today I tried multiple times to call Majority Leader McConnell to request he respond to Andrew McCabe saying he too was informed of the “counter-intelligence investigation” but said nothing. I lamented the lack of adults in the room speaking up when the public needs to hear as well as that we are a “Country of Laws not of Men (Women).”

      First I tried to call Majority Office in Washington D.C. Their inbox was full. Darn it Majority Leader, empty that inbox to hear from we the people. Wise to that, I called individual offices focused on his primary office, just to be disconnected 4 times over 2 hours this morning. Finally, I called fresh at 1 p.m. and got a human voice in Lexington KY.

      I asked Majority Leader McConnell to please speak up a) in response to McCabe’s claim of no response to initiation of counter intel briefing and b) as an ADULT Speaker of the Senate in the room to address McCabe’s claim to proper use of the 25th Amendment.

      We seriously lack adults in the room right now in Congress! it’s raising rancor within the USA. Not biased politicians, but serious Adults! So speak up please Majority Leader McConnell! I know you can do it! Ty.

        Skippy donaldjtrump link you posted is the ONLY way to get $$$ directly to Trump.
        Even so, 20% goes to RNC. I think this was agreed upon by the President.
        ALL other solicitations go somewhere else.
        Some of these “places” may be an issue you choose to support, and that’s great.
        But if you want the biggest bang for your bucks, want the max going to Trump’s re-election, or to be used at HIS discretion, stick with this site.
        In the fine print of all others you will see who is sponsoring the solicitation.
        (I think most of us are bombarded weekly with solicitations from these other “places”.)

        Hillsdale – January 2019 • Volume 48, Number 1 • Alex Berenson
        Alex Berenson
        As for the marijuana-reduces-opiate-use theory, it is based largely on a single paper comparing overdose deaths by state before 2010 to the spread of medical marijuana laws— and the paper’s finding is probably a result of simple geographic coincidence. The opiate epidemic began in Appalachia, while the first states to legalize medical marijuana were in the West. Since 2010, as both the epidemic and medical marijuana laws have spread nationally, the finding has vanished. And the United States, the Western country with the most cannabis use, also has by far the worst problem with opioids.

            SD has explicitly stated the same in several of his commentaries. Barr will not wreak judicial havoc on the FBI and DOJ. He will try to repair their reputations. SD “liked” my comment to his first (IIRC) article on Barr when I said he (Barr) would trade justice for tranquility.


          • dallasdan says:

            From SD’s article on Jan. 15, titled “AG Nominee William Barr Testimony to Judiciary Committee…”

            “However, it also appears the most purposeful goal for Mr. Barr, in direct alignment with his close personal friend Robert Mueller, will be the preservation of the DOJ institution as a historic apparatus. That “preserve-the-institution” at all costs means Barr will necessarily have to bury any/all systemic corruption to achieve a larger institutional goal.

            I Do not anticipate Barr will deliver any sunlight to expose how badly corrupted the DOJ has become. Instead he’ll likely apply bondo to cover the rot and apply a fresh coat of paint.”

            “covered”? Yes.

            Barr is the perfect person to calm the nerves of politicians who participated in the weaponization of government against Trump.

            Bondo Barr will calm them down, tell the Deep State usurpers not to worry about being exposed, and Trump will benefit from lessened opposition….

            It is the way of DC, and Bondo Barr is the perfect person to do the work.

            Fear of institutional collapse and accountability for their prior conduct is why the Deep State has blocked transcripts from being released; manufactured redactions to cover the worst aspects; and road-blocked congress. Bondo Bar dissuades that fear and lets them all know to settle down.”

                I will respectfully disagree. IMO, McConnell and Barr’s former cronies made the decision on his nomination, and McConnell presented it to the President as a “Barr or nobody in a reasonable time frame.”

                I could be wrong, but McConnell is clearly the shot-caller in the Senate, whether or not his objective supports the President (e.g. Syria resolution the President was forced to support) regarding confirmations, and I believe he is slow-walking the confirmation of the President’s nominees to exercise his influence/will on the President.

                The President calling out the Senate during the SOU for not confirming 300+ nominees showed his frustration.

        Thank you. Here are Mr. Scaffer’s specific comments regarding Ms. Powell:

        Sidney Powell, you interviewed Sidney Powell a few days ago, Sidney is an amazing woman who is an extraordinary litigator. She’s well respected, a practitioner. One of my closest friends and colleagues who is one of our distinguished members of our board is Bud Mcfarlane, the national security adviser for President Reagan, Jim Woolsey another extraordinary fellow, distinguished fellow, who actually is one of the backbone of our organization. The common thread of the people that we have within our ranks and our purpose as practitioners, we are very big on examining practical issues from the perspective of what policies work. We don’t deal well with theoretical papers. You don’t see us do a lot of papers because, while we do have academics I publish editorials, your organization publishes my editorials, we’re very much into educating the public in a very academic and factual way. We deal primarily in fact, in fact relating to this process worked in the past. We believe if you adapt this process for this current challenge the chances of success are pretty good. And I’d like to believe that if we’re brought into a situation; we were brought into Venezuela recently by certain senior leaders at the State Department, we’re being brought in because they want to have practical answers which will result in some outcome that is favorable to the national security interests of the United States.

    We need to stop making heroes out of non-heroes and any anger people have toward Ryan, McConnell and Burr needs to be directed to Nunes as well…I mean, if we REALLY are opposing duplicity and corruption rather than just finding ways of complaining about GOPe.

    I am really shocked and had been convinced we could trust Nunes. Not sure who to trust now.

      when did the briefing take place? was it while Nunes was undergoing “ethics” training?

      The gang of 8 CANNOT openly discuss ANY of the briefings that come thru the committee…PULEEZE guys, follow this stuff accurately!


    • lolli says:

      AM. Digging deep in my memory, but wasn’t this discussed and they were not all briefed at the same time. So each briefing personalized?
      Could be wrong.

        You, tea rose and snarkybeach could all be correct. I was just shocked by it.

        It seems everytime I start to think PDJT has people who are in his corner (I thought this about Sessions, for example) I am amazed when I find out how wrong i was. I dont know how people can be so weak or dishonorable. If I had their job and DeepState had something on me that kept me from doing the right then, I would resign. If it wasnt a case of DeepState having something on me but rather I didnt agree with PDJT on what needed to be done, i would just resign and move on.

        I am a flawed human being but I certainly fear God enough to not want to answer for the sins that it appears others are almost proud to commit. I have enough of my own to fret over and try to overcome without screwing the President, country or other decent people in the process.

          Like a kick in the guy daily I see all these twisted evil people we are allowing to actually run our country at our expense. And you are so right, I keep hoping to spot a good guy.
          They will answer for their actions one day.
          I do believe they are all controlled through blackmail to some degree.

        That is what I am thinking. They were briefed individually, which sounded very suspicious to me. Also, I thought it was Brennan who did it.

          Brennan testified 5-23-17 that he briefed gang of 8 between Aug 11th & Sept 6 (separately).

          McCabes book says he did his May 17th 2017

          CNN snip
          “In his new book, “The Threat,” McCabe briefly explains that on May 17, 2017 — the same day Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller — McCabe informed a bipartisan group of top lawmakers, known as the “Gang of 8,” about the case files opened on four individuals connected to the Trump campaign and some “additional steps” the FBI had taken, but he did not elaborate in the book.”

        I recall them as separate briefings.


    • Robert Smith says:

      Doubtful his briefing, if there was one, was the same as the other members of the gang of eight.


    • Joemama says:

      It sounds like Dobbs is parroting what McCabe said as if his word could be taken as the truth. I still believe that Nunes is one of the few good guys in congress.

    Although this post has likely been re-posted, I find the writings of “Autopsy of a Dead Coup” by Victor Davis Hanson a superb addition to the knowledge from this site…

    “”At the same time, liberal attorneys, foundations, Democratic politicians, and progressive activists variously sued to overturn the election on false charges of rigged voting machines. They sought to subvert the Electoral College. They introduced articles of impeachment. They sued to remove Trump under the Emoluments Clause. They attempted to invoke the 25th Amendment. And they even resurrected the ossified Logan Act—before focusing on the appointment of a special counsel to discredit the Trump presidency. Waiting for the 2020 election was seen as too quaint.””

      That is odd because Marc Short was on Chris Wallace’s show last weekend, defending President Trump vigorously.

      He even had a kill shot to Chris, asking why we need to even talk about McCabe when Hillary Clinton received $145M for her foundation from Russia.

        I just read through the article.

        Short is Koch brothers , open border.
        If even half of this article is true, he should not be near the White House.
        Short can say all he wants on TV, remember Gowdy, but this article is saying basically he was let go for insubordination
        There is more
        Now VP brings him back.

        Brietbart is a bit untrustworthy when it comes to white house people. The problem is they have an agenda on who they want.

        This stems from Bannon influence so when it comes to breitbart realize they have a vested interest in certain people failing and others winning when it comes to jobs in the executive.

        Not saying their wrong this is a warning that they have a bias in this aspect that does not always align with what is best person for the job and more who is our guy.

      I just got to thinking that when PTrump is considering or is firing or has fired somebody for not, for example, implementing the Trump agenda, it may merely mean that the person was trying hard but was incapable of the skills necessary to ram a reasonable agenda down the throats of the stubborn GOPe senior staff that infest the upper reaches of our government.

      So, not implementing the Trump agenda was just too difficult, and PTrump wanted some new blood in the position to see if it would be more effective.

    Unless I’m reading fake news, this #REDFORED movement appears to be a serious major problem brewing but not getting much attention by the conservative media.

    Looks like the Communists have found another path to seizing power in America. The environmental movement really didn’t work well for them in the long run; there was enough oppostion to their extreme claims to render much of it politically unpopular.

    But public education has always been conservatives’ weak side – no apparent energy or interest to get aggressively active in academia in any significant way. But it may be politically fatal to continue to ignore what’s developing…..

      Political beliefs aren’t a protected category. They’re not listed in Krazy Kamala’s lynching bill. And how could those three rambunctious men know you were gay? There’s no news here . . . just another instance of a Trump whacko getting his just desserts. Instead of complaining, you should be glad they didn’t beat the crap out of you! Ho-hum. Not news . . . not news at all.

      Now if you were a Dimm, there are the serious matters the FBI would be looking into, very soon.
