    Trump should ask China to exchange these bonds for the US debt they hold now.

    That would be a riot.

How much more proof do they need?Even the video where Our President is talking to the media with the room full of generals and others about this the calm before the storm! And he makes the Q sign with his left hand as he is talking! Also the recent rally in El Paso when Donald Trump Jr. is giving his speech and talking with his hands and making the Q sign with his left hand! And many more signs! So Obvious. General Flynn signing things with WWG1WGA! Really sad that oh we aren’t allowed to discuss Q here! No freedom of speech?

    Just in time for election season… I expect there will be more of this coming:


    “WASHINGTON (AP) — Prosecutors say a Coast Guard lieutenant is a “domestic terrorist” who wrote about biological attacks and had a hit list that included prominent Democrats and media figures.

    Christopher Paul Hasson is due in court on Thursday in Maryland. He was arrested on gun and drug charges last week.

    Prosecutors say Hasson espoused extremist views for years. Court papers detail a June 2017 draft email in which Hasson described an “interesting idea” that included “biological attacks followed by attack on food supply.”

    Federal agents found 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition when Hasson was arrested. Prosecutors say he also had compiled a list of prominent congressional Democrats, activists, journalists and media commentators.

    Hasson’s attorney declined to comment on Wednesday. His arrest was first noted by researchers from George Washington University.”

      “‘I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on earth’: A self-proclaimed white nationalist planned a mass terrorist attack, the government says ”

      “Christopher Paul Hasson called for “focused violence” to “establish a white homeland” and dreamed of ways to “kill almost every last person on earth,” according to court records filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland. Though court documents do not detail a specific planned date for an attack, the government said he had been amassing supplies and weapons since at least 2017, developed a spreadsheet of targets that included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and searched the Internet using phrases such as “best place in dc to see congress people” and “are supreme court justices protected.”

      “The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,” the government said in court documents filed this week, arguing that Hasson should stay in jail awaiting trial. “

        AOC could be the opposing force to broaden the Overton Window before the 2020 presidential election.

        The Overton Window represents the boundaries of “acceptable” public policy and discourse — what a politician can support without seeming too “extreme.” Opposing forces try to broaden this window (or shift it to one side) to make formerly “radical” ideas seem more “mainstream.”

        We need to unmask her handlers to fully understand the intentions of the AOC useful idiot phenomenon.

    If this has been brought up today already, please forgive me – just got home from work and haven’t caught up on the whole thread. The SC ruling today overturning the asset forfeiture stuff (which in the surface feels like a good thing in limiting government overreach) worries me that it’s timed to stop the early move made by the President to go after the funds of those trafficking in children etc as part of the set up to get to The Big Ugly. The Clinton money as so forth. Does this ruling affect or negate that stuff? I got a bad feeling about this for some reason… anybody know about this? Thanks!

    “The representatives said the purposes behind labeling the specific cartel factions as terrorist organizations are:

    To make it unlawful for any person who knowingly provides “material support or resources” to the cartel to enter the United States.
    To prevent any member of a designated drug cartel from legally entering the United States.
    To allow the Secretary of the Treasury to block all assets possessed or controlled by the drug cartels.
    To further stigmatize these groups both at home and abroad.
    In the letter to Secretary Pompeo, the Congressmen note:

    Given these harrowing circumstances, law enforcement needs to have every tool at their disposal to dismantle drug cartels. Labeling cartels that utilize terrorism as FTOs would make it unlawful for any person who knowingly provides “material support or resources” to the cartel to enter the United States, prevent any member of a designated drug cartel from legally entering the United States, and allow the Secretary of the Treasury to block all assets possessed or controlled by the drug cartels. It would also further stigmatize these groups both at home and abroad.”

      Ha- she went to Rosenstein’s office 3 mo ago (story from beginning of Dec)

      Leah Millis/Reuters
      The Justice Department officially has a new top spokesperson: Kerri Kupec has been named director of its Office of Public Affairs, The Daily Beast has learned.

      Sarah Isgur Flores, the previous director of public affairs for the department, has moved to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office, multiple Justice Department sources confirmed. Flores has been one of the most visible advocates for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who resigned from the department the day after midterm elections. She worked on the team that guided Sessions through his contentious nomination process, and previously was a spokesperson for Carly Fiorina’s presidential campaign.

      Kupec, the new top spokesperson, formerly represented the conservative group Alliance Defending Freedom. She also spent time at the White House helping with Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

      Is Eric going to make his 2020 announcement ? This is the type of posts all the other candidates are doing. Got their PR , MO on watch.

      2 days ago in Iowa. The Gazette — snip

      SIOUX CITY — In a visit to a Sioux City home, U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., teased an audience about a potential 2020 presidential bid.

      Swalwell, an Iowa native who represents California’s 15th district in the House of Representatives, said Saturday night he has eight staffers in Iowa and is putting together staffers in South Carolina in anticipation of tossing his hat into the ring. But the formal announcement is yet to come.

      “Yes, I imagine, we’ll have an announcement fairly soon,” he said while standing in the living room of local Democrat Jim Sorvaag. Several dozen supporters crowded into Sorvaag’s Sioux City house to hear Swalwell’s speech, which was put on as a Woodbury County Democratic Party Truman Club event.


      • Bigbadmike says:

        Stalwell was about 4 to 10 years old when his family moved to California. Of course, being born in Iowa makes him a Hawkeye. John Wayne was also born in Iowa, but he lived there a bit longer than Eric. He is 38 years old, half the age of Bernie. If he announces, it will be another loser that will throw their support to Hillbag. Biden is being pressured to be her stooge in 2020 because it would be really boring to watch a redux of Bernie and Her flatulence again.

    Did not watch the clip, but wanted to post this here, anyways. Andrew McCarthy told Lou Dobbs tonight that he thinks there is a 75% chance that the Dems impeach POTUS.


    BUT…he also says he doesn’t think there is any chance POTUS is removed from office.

    Not sure I agree with McCarthy here (impeaching without removing is not considered a political winner for the party that impeaches), but wanted to post the clip anyways.

    One thought I had on this, before, was that the Dems could try to wait until closer to the 2020 election to impeach POTUS. That is, have Trump “impeached” going into the election (to hurt him politically) without actually having to immediately face the voters (Dem House) when and if the impeachment fails in the Senate. Then you hope Trump loses in the election and the Senate trial never happens.

    If that scenario took place, my guess is the Dem House would let the SDNY investigation (and their own) string out as long as possible before drawing up impeachment articles as Fall 2020 hits.

    We will see. We know the Dems and their helpers in the media and the Deep State will do anything they can to hurt POTUS politically. Tank his polls, hurt the economy, etc. So nothing would surprise me, even though I don’t think there is any chance (right now) that POTUS could be removed by the Senate.


    • Johnny Dollar says:

      “Andrew McCarthy told Lou Dobbs tonight that he thinks there is a 75% chance that the Dems impeach POTUS.”

      Your quote is not correct.

      Andrew McCarthy said : “Well, I think we have to be clear about what we’re talking about with respect to impeachment. I still think the president will be, I think there’s probably three chances out of four that he will be impeached in the sense that the Democrat controlled House will file articles of impeachment.”

      “Filing” by a house member, any House member, is a far cry from voting to impeach by the full house. Lots of steps in between the two events.

      In fact, Mr. McCarthy is a bit off, too. The chances for a filing of articles of impeachment by the democrat controlled congress are not 75%; but, actually, 100%. Because, a Democrat has already filed articles of impeachment. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6554663/California-Democrat-files-articles-impeachment-day-House-power-shift.html
