    Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey Attended Closed-Door Meeting With President Trump

    The meeting lasted 30 minutes, and touched on “the health of the public conversation on Twitter,” according to an internal Twitter email obtained by Motherboard.

    • Intelligence meets wisdom.
      Wisdom trumps intelligence.
      Wise people hire intelligent people to work for them.

    Connecticut’s U.S. Attorney investigating FBI media leaks in Russia probe

    “Connecticut U.S. Attorney John H. Durham is investigating a former top FBI lawyer and possibly others in connection with media leaks from the agency’s initial probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion by then-candidate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.”

      Seems the investigation claim is not what it appears to be: ( Lawfare blog source could also be lying )
      “Durham’s investigation had nothing to do with the Russia investigation or the Steele dossier. I have first-hand knowledge of this because, in my former capacity as general counsel to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, I was interviewed by Durham as part of that investigation. I’m not at liberty to disclose what Durham was investigating, but it concerned events that occurred long before the 2016 election and were unrelated to Russia or the dossier. Others have reported that Durham has cleared Baker”

        The fight is ongoing until the end, BW – however – if there is no consequence – as has been the case for quite some time – nothing changes – the effort now is toward paying for the crimes committed – no more paying off judges – prosecuting the guilty relentlessly – this is hopeful – little by little they are being exposed – the truth will set us free – and God is in charge – perhaps, this is what He wants – for people to fight back – and evil exposed.

    Here they go again… trying to block building of the wall:


    “In both the initial complaint and the motion filed Tuesday, the House says this action violates the appropriations clause of the Constitution. Trump declared the emergency after lawmakers refused to meet his funding demands for the wall, giving him access to as much as $8.1 billion, even though Congress only approved $1.38 billion for the project.

    The injunction motion states the Trump administration has already started awarding contracts for the wall, making the case a pressing one. The House says it is willing to speed up the schedule in the case so the court can decide quickly on the merits of the claims.

    “If defendants are permitted to spend funds on border wall construction while this case is being litigated, those funds cannot be clawed back,” the motion states. “There is no question that the House will be irreparably injured absent an injunction.””

    Ha, here’s another loser:
    Gov. LARRY HOGAN (R-MD) is mulling entering the 2020 Presidential race, against President Donald J. Trump. HOGAN says he’ll make his decision by November 15, the last filing day to run for 2020.
    Yeah, right. LARRY HOGAN is a NeverTrumper. Maryland—I wouldn’t retire there under any circumstances—getting a permit to own a firearm is like trying to get one in GERMANY. Not only that, but Maryland doesn’t recognize a CCW license from any other state. if you’re pulled over in Maryland with your weapon (EVEN unloaded, in a locked case, and the case stowed in the trunk of your car), you can get arrested because of having with you as you travel in the state.

      I particularly liked this comment posted below the article:

      “Several things that did come out of the Mueller Investigation:

      1. Many in the FBI CIA were moles working on their own Agendas. Many got Fired……and these Agencies lost a lot of Trust, Respect and Credibility from the Public.
      Note: Comey , Strzok , Page, Clapper and Brennan will go down as the most Arrogant, Pompous, Worst Scumbags of All time within these Agencies.
      2. Hillary , Obama and John “Lurch” Kerry are Guilty of Collusion , Obstruction and Treason.
      3. John McCain was a Mole, Traitor and showed his True Colors.
      4. The whole Investigation was All about going after Trump for any Reason.
      5. The Democrats Hate for Trump is Stronger than their Appreciation for the Hard Working, Tax Paying, Legal Law Abiding Citizens.
      6. The Democrats have lost it. That’s what happens when you have “Schiff” for Brains.
      7. The Traitors behind the Walls are worse than the Barbarians at the Front Gates.”

      There is a Mormon “prophecy” that a Mormon will win the presidency and save the constitution from destruction. Some of them really think PDJT is destroying the constitution and we need a savior.

      I don’t think Mitt really believes any of this, or he wouldn’t have taken a dive against the man who actually was shredding the constitution, Obama. Mitt is a globalist who can’t win without playing the Mormon card.

      We’ll see if decent Mormons can see through all this BS, or if they’ll just vote the way the corrupt church leadership tells them to. They must be desperate to bring in the big guns like Mitt, and not another creep like Egg McMuffin.

        Whether true or not, and whether Mitt “He’s so Bain” Romney believes it or not; none of that means that Mitt isn’t a “false Prophet”. Just because he happens to be Mormon doesn’t make him automatically the one to fulfill the prophecy.

          It is a good bet that one of the two parties will field a candidate to run against Trump. Right now their only chance is to prevent an electoral win and throw the election to the house for president and the senate for vice-president. We will eventually start hearing about faithless electors who will change their pledged vote. This in addition to the states trying to change the way they allocate their vote points to the strategy of putting this election in the hands of congress. The leadership of both parties will work out the details.

      More proof that the White House reads the CTH?

      I believe they have added a visa idea I have posted here several times. Not my original idea, but an idea from recently deceased scientist and inventor Dr. Bill Wattenberg of Northern California.

      A brilliant man who was an advisor to several presidents, “Dr. Bill” offered sage advice on topics from nuclear weapons to the strategy for rapidly extinguishing oil fires in Kuwait.

      His idea to curb Visa overstays: have an applicant deposit say $3,000 (this was maybe the year 2000); if they overstay their Visa, they forfeit the monies. The confiscated funds can be used to fund more visitor and immigration enforcement.

      The White House proposal

      “The Trump Administration will develop measures for implementing admission bonds as a potential way to improve compliance with visas.”

      Dr. Bill was a weekend talk show host on KGO Radio for over 20 years. Some if his more colorful calls are posted on YouTube.

      I’ve said it here before. A “controlled” primary challenge to POTUS isn’t the end of the world. There are a few positives to be had in addition to the fund-raising. The funds can later be rolled over into the general election campaign.

      First, it keeps the Dems from sucking up all the media oxygen during the long primary season. That’s big.

      Second, it gives POTUS the opportunity to hone his message for the general election campaign, and try out different themes.

      Finally, it keeps him in top fighting shape for whomever the Dems throw at him in the general.

The unethical and over the top surveillance done to even collect the information it had- was that permissible? The obvious issues with the EC and the sketchy Papadopoulus predicate. Etc…

    “I know that God is using me to expose certain epic truths at trial and I know that as I walk each day in His Light and listen to the guidance of that still small voice within, the whisper of God, I will be victorious in His name. My strength, my confidence comes from Him. I have stepped from the darkness into the Light and I will prevail. The course of history is about to be changed through His guidance. I now know exactly what I must do.”



  37. Kim and Putin are meeting right now, because they believe Pompeo and Bolton are running the show. They have given up on Trump, after Trump allowed Bolton to swoop in and undermine him in Hanoi. Why is Trump allowing These Neocons to humiliate him? Does Trump even realize that every beautiful thing he has done is being “undone” by these maniacs? Even if this isn’t the case, the world sees it this way.

    I detest Mike Pompeo and John Bolton.
