    Huawei. I know next to nothing about it. I have been surprised at how quick big tech got on board. Esp since from bad orange man. Didn’t Trump have a big tech meeting several weeks ago? What was said? Did China think big tech wouldn’t follow the big orange man? Was there a bit if a game that Trump and big tech played out?

      You having nothing to say,but your disrespect is coming through.


      • Brant says:

        If referring to me, no disrespect. My “orange man” should have been in quotes (big tech/media/leftist quotes) etc since all big tech has been after Trump since say one. I’m just fascinated that they got on board so quick. I was fully expecting them to be all against him. They were on board in 24 hours.

      Brant, I think our country is waking up to what China decided it wanted to become. I’ve been seeing a lot of support for what President Trump is doing from some very unlikely places. The right man at the right time

        Maybe its like this; theres a bully, intimidating whoever he knows he can get away with. Those who aren’t bullied, don’t LIKE what bully is doing, but don’t say anything, cause they don’t want to confront bully (scared) either.

        Then a bully buster walks in. Sees whats going on, walks right up to bully, grabs by collar and,slams up against wall.
        “KNOCK it OFF, punk!” lets go and walks away. Now, others aren’t intimidated, and say “Yeah, we ain’t afraid of you, either!”

        I agree there is support coming from a lot of places, some surprising, some not so much. THIS is what happens when you rip everybody off; everybody gets p.o.’d about it.

        Nobody LIKES a bully, or someone who doesn’t ‘play’ fair. Why ‘play’ with someone who always CHEATS? Especially when you can play with someone who DOESN’T cheat (and who has the BIGGEST game in town!)?

        I don’t think he wants a trade deal with them at all. I think he will push India as a substitute and perhaps Vietnam and put China out of business. Why any country would wish to keep giving them money so they can try and dominate the world is ridiculous. Of course we still have my leader May and Merkel who seem to do just the opposite of what makes sense and that is a hindrance.

    It’s all downhill from here for the Dems.

    POTUS knows this, which is why he shut down the infrastructure meeting yesterday.

    Pelosi tried to counter today, but going to the played-out 25th Amendment Card is unlikely to succeed. Nor is the appeal to emotion of the most recent migrant child’s death (Bad Trump).

    The public wants the Dems to move on from Muh Russia. But the Dems cannot move on from it, both because the Kook Fringe sold their voters on it, and because without Muh Russia the Dems have no power and no relevance. They become irrelevant. Unless they work with POTUS.

    Pelosi knows this, but she’s stuck with her party civil war. Hence the hysterics today, to try to distract as the House takes a recess for the holiday.

    India’s Modi Heads for a Landslide Win; Hindu Nationalists expected to get around 350 out of 542 seats
    “Early election results indicate a landslide victory for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu Nationalist party.
    “It looks like the Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and allies will receive around 350 out of 542 seats, well over the 272 majority mark.
    “India’s grand-old socialist Congress party, which ruled the country for 54 of its 67 years since independence, may pick up around 80 seats, slightly better than its worst ever showing in the 2014 elections. The electoral landscape has mostly wiped out India’s other left-wing and Communist parties, traditionally strong in the eastern and southern states.”

      Fact is he never was the front runner, it is all a media narrative creation. Sanders is the front runner and likely will be the eventual winner of this horrific slate of candidates.

      Butt Plug will likely be a goner as soon as the primaries kick in, and real votes are tallied. Another media creation. Has zero substance, a left wing moon bat, but speaks in a nice moderate tone. He does look like Alfred E. Neuman for sure, but he always reminded me of another cartoon character I just could not remember which one, now I have it figured! Bugs Bunny, just deranged and without the ears 🙂

      BTW notice how Butt Plug always make a nasty snide remark about Trump, like the Vietnam comment earlier today. This guy needs the oxygen of publicity, so he wants Trump to bite, and in doing so elevate him. Fortunately Trump being a VSG, sees this for what it is and ignores him, the only time Trump comments on him, is when he is asked a specific question about him, or when he does something goofy like a Town Hall with FOX, it also gives him the opportunity to knock FOX as well LOL 🙂

      Butt Plug is so out of his depth he is already taking on water, will likely be drowned once the going gets tough!

      This guy his wrong. Miles & Miles have been built.

      This report linked below is from 6 months ago. Add up the mileage of what was already built as of 12/18 & what was already scheduled for the upcoming months.

      What was budgeted in 2017 was constructed in 2018. What was budgeted in 2018 is being built in 2019. We are only 2 yrs and 4 months into a 4 year term. President Trump can not go outside of Congress to get money except for exactly what he is doing after declaring the National Emergency and redirecting funds from defensive use overseas, etc.

      We need to decide if President Trump has fulfilled promises not 6 months, 18 months, 24 months or 29 months into this 48 month term. Let’s see how close he is -> Despite >> the GOP in Congress the 1st two years did Not give him the money and authority to do more. And now the Dems won’t fund border security either.

      What do his critics expect? What did his critics say about the National Emergency declaration? Are they the same who have criticized his every move toward border security?!

      • Katherine McCoun says:

        Other media, Never Trumpers and Dem talking heads will use talking points such as:

        1) its see through v. solid concrete: Within weeks of President Trump taking office he began to say that it might need to be see through and within a couple of months had switched to the fencing/wall absolutely being see through. Why? Because he listened to the experts, to the boots on the ground, and then respected their experience, expertise and recommendations. I respect President Trump for changing rather than sticking to his vision before he learned from the experts. That is a mark of a real leader!

        2) its not 2,000 miles/the entire border: In real figures, he always said we needed to secure the entire border but we have natural barriers on parts. It was expected that about 1,000 miles of border would be fenced and about 1,000 left unfenced due to rugged mountains and other natural barriers.

        3) Mexico would pay: He said Repeatedly, from June, ’15 forward, that Mexico would pay via trade, that we were being “killed” on trade with Mexico, etc. Just because the media either didn’t pay attention or were too stupid to catch on doesn’t mean that he was wrong. With the renegotiation of NAFTA to the USMCA Mexico will loose money, the US economy will gain money and that “pays” for the wall as promised.

        Mexico has changed some of their actions based on Trump admin demands including keeping some asylum seekers in Mexico & deportation of some of their illegal immigrants. They have not done enough and need to do more but Trump as gotten action from them.

        –>> On a side note, many of us do not care who pays for the wall and would gladly pay out of our own pockets while we have a POTUS willing to build it.

        Katherine: Regarding building the border wall. Some unpleasant truths.

        First of all it takes the government over two years to actually spend any given years congressional funding and start building walls. The government considers anything approaching 2 years to very very aggressive!

        We know President Trump is pushing for 2 years whenever he can verses say the usual 3 years plus!

        Case in point: Only 39.5 miles of 40 miles of 2016 has been built with the remaining wall to be finished sometime after June 2019! That is like less than a mile per month over 3 plus years!

        2018 Congressional funding has only just started to be contracted out late spring 2019. The last 12 miles of 2018 funding is not due to be awarded until December 31, 2019!

        None of 2018 wall constructionill be finished until sometime in 2020! Again 2 years plus!

        We have not even gotten close to the point where 2019 funding will be awarded! The earliest that will happen is sometime in 2020! That means construction won’t be finished until 2021! Again 2 years plus!

        You see President Trump has to push very hard just to compress 3 plus years down to 2 plus years! Governments by nature always move slowly even with President Trump pushing hard!

        For President Trump pushing the government is like pushing on a string! Big time frustration!

        Now here is the good part.

        There wall is slowly but surely being built! We are well past the point of just talking about building the wall! We are actually seeing real action! That big inert body called government is being forced to move against it’s wishes!

        The most critical parts of the old porus wall are being torn down and replaced with new real walls! Replacing old porus existing walls should be finished late 2019.

        Sometime in likely late 2019 we may start to see some of the first miles of Normandy walls being replaced with new walls.

        By 2020 we should definately start seeing even more Normandy walls being replaced. These sections should go up quicker because they are on flatter groun making construction easier.

        Yeah the wall is going up too slow but it is going up never-the-less!

    The memo directs government agencies to enforce legislation signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996 that requires sponsors of immigrants to the U.S. to reimburse the government for any welfare benefits received by the person they are sponsoring.

    Immigrant sponsors will be informed by agencies that they are required to pay back the money, and that they will be sent to collections if they fail to do so. Agencies will have 90 days to update their guidance and will report back to the president on their progress in 180 days. That act was cosponsored by then-Sen. Joe Biden and Democratic Sen.

    I believe Sundance referred to this Brennan inter agency group a year or so back, but I don’t recall him mentioning it in a while.

    FYI, the Connecticut attorney has an active crew of attorneys in Conn. (Recent state indictments, convictions.)

    Paul Sperry noted, “According to Main DOJ sources, Durham’s portfolio for looking into the provenance of CH includes examining docs generated by an interagency ‘fusion cell’ Brennan set up in mid-2016 on Russian election interference + pre-election briefings Steele gave to UK intelligence”…


    • gsonFIT says:

      Fusion Cell or Fusion Center are used interchangeably. I corrected one CTH poster about this about a month ago and apologize. The FBI seems to prefer Fusion Center. These are inter-agency intelligence sharing groups as the name implies. I had always thought of Brennan’s team as a “working group”

      Couple of observations from my internet research:

      1) They typically begin with a Memorandum of Understanding. SunDance blogged about a 2012 MoU on 5/2/2019 and this connected things for me.
      2) DHS promoted their use after 9/11
      3) They incorporate “Activity based Intelligence” from “Patterns of Life” surveillance – Is this O Admin’s unmasking?
      4) FBI had details on their website under “community service”
      5) They seem to have become popular in second Iraqi war

      I read about “patterns of life” surveillance in comments sections of a NY times article when reading about Spygate. I had seen Brennen’s working group referred to as a Fusion Cell and became curious when I saw Fusion cell/center in additional research. Then SunDance’s 5/2 blog. It seems this has been going on since mid 1980’s. MoU in 1986 where FBI provided domestic intel for CIA.

        I wish I had the link readily available but one of the twitter accounts that jeff@themarketswork retweets sometimes had a very compelling theory that this is the source of the 702 search abuse. One of these fusion groups was caught by NSA accessing the databases improperly. The dates lined up. The most compelling bit of evidence to me was a bill introduced in Congress addressing the 702 access by these groups using the MOU language in the FISC opinion that would match precisely with the time when Congress would be expected to have wanted a bit of CYA in case this got exposed.

        I’m gonna have a look around and see if I can find it because it really ties a lot together if theory works. It ties Sundance’s 702 search bit in with the great research from the war economy on twitter into the early actions of Brennan. Essentially the fusion group that breached protocol was likely the one set up by Brennan. The outside contractors are not necessarily outside of government but rather people accessing the data in an improper way (essentially using FBI credentials to look up US persons info on a CI pretext but sharing it with agencies who have no business seeing it). It has seemed suspect to me that the FISC did not react more aggressively to the FBI sharing info with outside contractors but this theory would put the info with other agencies (so they had security clearances just not for the info they were accessing) which is more in line with the type of reaction we saw from the court IMO and fits a lot of other data points that pop up regarding MOUs with other agencies.

        If I find the thread I will post it as a reply to your message.


      • Hmmm... says:

        Found it:

        If his theory is correct it would be extremely amusing how it was exposed. I also think he is highly underestimating the amount of abuse that was occurring. So one MOU breach was discovered but it lead to a review of other MOU’s (Brennan’s working group). Dunno if we will ever get enough disclosure to prove this either way but it’s an interesting theory.

        The wikipedia entry for “fusion cells” is pretty interesting too. They have been a source of political targeting before.

      There is an export licenses somewhere in the bowels of the Department of State, approved before January 2017, that has this export and contract as part of the documents. Granted the judge did not feel the need to consider national security, but this highlights why the President must order the State Department to freeze all export licenses related to anything CCP for review as well as possible cancellation.

      There are many more of these about to surface. The IP theft is part true and part SCAM by the very US companies claiming to have IP stolen by the CCCP.

      Technically the China Inc. has legal documents to pre-empt the President’s orders until the licenses are addressed.

      Given the number of deep state actors McConnell has allowed to remain in the State Department, DoD and INTEL, by slow rolling the President’s appointments, it would not be surprising if some export licenses have been renewed, with the few President Trump appointees even knowing it happened. The President needs to halt issuing all new licenses and renewals, especially to the CCCP NOW.

      It’s a dead heat toss up on who’s
      the most utterly dislikeable: Cornell
      Race Card or his buddy Tavis Frowney.

    following events yesterday & today, I am reminded of a comment from years ago that the representatives do not write legislation. they sign legislation written by lobbyists. as I recall it was during the roll out of the Obama care disaster, tho I am sure it has been happening for a long time.
    Today’s exhibit by Pelosi (and POTUS comment re: USMCA that she does not understand it) leads me to wonder if the real problem is that they no longer know how to write legislation. The older members like Pelosi may be incapable and the new members are illiterate on the matter.
    POTUS is asking them to do what they were elected to do – and they don’t know how to do it. worse, they won’t admit the real problem, hence ‘we’ll keep investigation’….

    FTA – This week, Attorney General William Barr joined Vice President Mike Pence in condemning the harrowing recent rise of “nationwide injunctions” as anti-constitutional judicial power grabs that disturb the carefully calibrated separation of powers system that the Constitution’s Framers so sagaciously devised.

    Apparently we can no longer refer to POTUS as a VSG.

    He’s now an ESG : Extremely Stable Genius

    There are four or five video incidents of Chuck and/or Nancy claiming banging on tables and temper tantrums. It doesn’t play anymore.

    FTA – President Trump signed a presidential memorandum on Thursday cracking down on welfare-dependent legal immigration to the United States in an effort to protect American taxpayers.

    The order ensures that federal agencies will enforce the existing 1996 laws which seek to save American taxpayers by having their public welfare funding benefits reimbursed when they are used by a legal immigrant. The first function of the order mandates that a family member or business sponsor of a legal immigrant looking to permanently resettle in the U.S. is responsible for paying back the welfare costs previously used by that immigrant.

    WILLIAM WELD, trying to run against POTUS as a “Republican” in 2020, said this about President Trump on Tuesday night during a speech to the Kennedy Institute:
    “I celebrate that America has always been a melting pot. IT SEEMS HE [POTUS] WOULD PREFER AN ARYAN NATION.”

    Well, President Trump again failed to get money for the border crisis. Again kicked down the road, and Mr. Shelby there (R) being a Decepticon?

    “We’re going to try and push that separately when we come back; it’s needed,” said Sen. Richard Shelby (R., Ala.), chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “We’re sticking with disaster now—that’s the way to pass the bill. It’s been months.”

      Good riddance. They were vile. Maybe someone can go back and revisit the FBI raid of last year. (also a DB story)

      “In late 2016, federal agents showed up at the Fort Myers, Florida, homes of brothers Brian and Edward Krassenstein, seizing computers and financial records, and hauling off “at least 20 to 30 bundles of stuff.”

      At the time, the story was just a notable blip on local media’s crime blotter. But in the two years since, the Krassensteins have become more than a pair of local businessmen. They’re now prominent members of the online anti-Trump “resistance.”

      According to the feds, the brothers also, until recently, ran websites that propped up fraudulent online financial scams. Law enforcement officials last year seized nearly half a million dollars from the brothers, money that prosecutors say was derived from wire fraud. The Krassensteins, who have not been charged with any crimes, maintain that they did nothing wrong or illegal.”

    Wife was looking at family stuff on Facebook, when an article appeared that said, “President Trump self-identified as a woman and he claimed the title of first female President”. No attribution as to source but it would be a major league troll if he really did it. That will light some hair on fire for sure.


  46. Those two were idiots! Paid to troll POTUS!

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    May 23, 2019

    ** Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.
