    Evidently Trish Reagan made some strong comments on China on Fox and the Chinese responded. then she challenged the Chinese media to a debate over the issues.

    Hey #China State TV – let’s have an HONEST debate on #trade. You accuse me of being ‘emotional’ and not knowing my facts – wrong! You name the time and place, and I’ll be there! #TrishRegan

    Now this:
    CCTV official Weibo promoting the upcoming “debate” between Fox News anchor Trish Regan and CCTV host Liu Xin to air on Fox News after a back and forth on air feud between the two.

    Not sure how this will turn out especially since Chinese audiences will only see the redacted version.

      The thing about state run propaganda, is that everybody knows they are being told lies or half truths. Here in America, there are still about a portion of the people who think our mainstream press is telling the truth, so they get sucked into the fallacies easily and usually base their trust in the Big Names in media that historically brought them the news—the “Old Guard”. In communist countries, the people know it is all a facade.

    Report: Obama’s Spying On The Press Was Far More Extensive Than Previously Thought

    President Trump might be openly hostile to the mainstream media, but it was the Obama administration that was engaged in a widespread effort to thwart the media. Which do you think is more harmful to a free press?

    The full extent of Obama’s actions against the press are only now coming to light.

        You don’t get a pass for intentionally disseminating *classified* information, nomatter who you are. Ask Julian Assange.

        Although Hellary insists that her emails with Obama, hidden on her private server, were not classified, to her knowledge, so why would the FBI then harass Mr Assange? Are they just acting as Hellary’s private goon squad, or are they investigating *her* treasonous actions as well?

        Which is it then? Is FBI with *her*? Or do they work to secure the interests of our Constitutional Republic? Hmm

        I remember hearing about all of those wonderful reporters during WWII who kept a LOT of military secrets while covering the European and the Pacific war news.

        Not one of them that I am aware of ever leaked anything about any of our military plans and quite a few of hem were able to figure out by troop movements just exactly what was coming up.

        So much was at stake back then and so many young American soldiers lives were at stake and the reporters back then were aware of this and did their jobs very well.

        The media now days does not care who is hurt.

He justified this by adding, “the public would not have accepted the deal had it known that Iranian hard-liners were still calling the shots.”

      This map is missing two very key elements to fully illuminate the emerging geo- economic Battle of the Pacific.
      1. I suggest high lighting the Yellow Sea. The critical major bases of the Chinese Navy as well as major economic gate ways to China Inc. are on the Coast of the Yellow Sea. All the way back to the feeble dynasties at the turn of the 20th century, China had a huge concern over control of the Yellow Sea. This is a major issue with respect to the Korean Peninsula.

      2. The Malaga Straights needs to be high lighted as the critical maritime economic highway of the Pacific and an objective of China Inc. to control.

      3. The South China Sea for minerals.

      Points 2 and 3 are the reason for the China Inc. fortress Islands in the area, as well as the secondary objective of isolating Taiwan.

        My practice is changing the provider of our online patient portal, and two of the three vendors who submitted proposals proudly touted their ability to accommodate multiple, non-traditional gender categories from which our patients may choose to identify themselves. Among the choices were: Male, Female, Androgynous, Stemme, Agender, Bigender, Pangender, Transgender, Transsexual, Transition, Intersex, and Not Applicable.

        During their product demonstrations, we asked them to modify the gender selection options to only M and F. Both refused, claiming (my paraphrasing) “their advanced, socially progressive software was appropriate for modern businesses focused on the latest trends in customer relationship management.”

        It took only a few moments of eye contact and no discussion among me and my three co-founding practice principals before we told them they had self-eliminated their products and companies from consideration in the bid award process.

        They were shocked and insulted, to our great delight. Their rebuttal was a thinly veiled, harsh criticism of our intolerance of and lack of respect for individual differences. Moreover, we were “out of touch” with our current and future client base.

        My most outspoken partner replied that their product was morally offensive to the large majority of the population, and we had too much respect for our patient-clients to expose them to such an absurdity. We calmly ended the meeting and left the conference room. Our security guard supervised their packing their display and presentation equipment before escorting them out the door.

        I suspect that comments made by any of the four of us in casual conversations with friends on the golf course, at parties, or wherever caused the news to travel quickly on the medical “grapevine.” Happily, the resulting phone calls, emails, and texts from fellow physicians and various other medical service and product providers were nearly 100% supportive. All of the several very ugly, negative comments came from unidentifiable email and phone accounts. To our surprise, there has been no backlash which, IMO, is likely due to the vendors in question not wanting to advertise the discomfort created by their product. Additionally, I believe they understand how ridiculous they appear to be in attempting to profit from their faux-progressive posturing.

        Many of my colleagues in multiple practice disciplines have acquiesced to the pressures imposed by the LBGTQWTF community and changed their manual/automated patient records systems/processes to accommodate the gender craziness. One of my more economically-driven physician friends told me her patients could self-identify as reptiles and she would address them as such if it got them into her office.

        My status of semi-retirement has never looked so good.

And the training is tracked in such a way that employees who have not demonstrated their completion of the compulsory instruction are terminated. No exemptions.

              You are correct, and it is deplorable. Hospitals of all sizes, including those that claim to be “faith-based” in both name and philosophy, are forcing staff members to complete “sensitivity” training of the kind you mentioned, or their employment is terminated.

              For those institutions, I am totally convinced their behavior is entirely motivated by profitability, and “rolling with the flow” of liberalism, no matter how outrageous, is the presently preferred approach.

            I found this appalling! The female skipped over the pronouns and got right down to business.

            For the record, those beta males should have chosen different pronouns. My daughters have more testosterone.

            Greetings chloe.

            I admit not knowing the definitions of several of the gender-descriptive terms I saw when the vendors made their presentations, and neither I nor my partners cared to hear the definitions. Later, out of curiosity in a time of complete boredom, I Googled them.

            Stemme refers to someone whose gender expression is both masculine and feminine. I am proficient in reading the King’s English, but I have no concept of how that is manifested in reality.

            Bigender is similar, but differentiated from Stemme in an illogical, scientifically ridiculous manner.

            I encourage you not to clutter your mind with any further inquiry regarding this nonsense.

              But it was kind of you to try.

              To me all of these so called new gender choices sound like the kind of goofball things we would come up with in high school while sitting in the desert around a bonfire and after we had more than our share of too much Coors beer.

              I was so glad when I outgrew that stage and moved on to higher intellectual pursuits.

              But it sounds like some of the kids from my “woodsy” days are back.

                I often enjoy thinking about the carefree times prior to my pursuing higher intellectual activities. Hay rides, rodeos, dances, muscle cars, keg parties, and dates at the drive-in movie were staples of my youth.

                Now, I am a responsible adult deeply concerned about improving/saving lives, politics and the future of my country. The burden of maturity is weighty.

                My partners and I have had many hearty (see what I did there? :-)) laughs at the expense of the “gender jokers” as we now refer to them.

      Prop 187 1994 was a seminal moment for CA and the country as a whole. Prop 187 passed 60% to 40%, but the liberals and the cabal rushed to friendly judge who set aside the will of the people, and we as a country sat on our hands. Pete Wilson at that time didn’t have the political heft or will to fight it.

      That’s when 50 states should have dawned their yellow vests. We were already showing our teeth in 92 with Perot and then with the House flipping with The Contract With America 94. But DC and we still sat idly by as our country was invaded. We made the mistake of believing that our politicians loved the USA, and this great land. Oh well. I know what a silly notion.

        To make a long story short.

        My son is an engineer and has his own business so he can work his own hours.

        Several years ago he started working as a substitute teach in his son’s junior high school in the science and math classes.

        He did not have a teaching degree but because of his experience in the area of math and science the state he lived in allowed him to teach part time.

        Like I said to make a long story short, he and my daughter in law were so horrified by the atmosphere of the classroom and the over all lack of professionalism of the teaching staff that they started homeschooling their children.

        I wonder if more parents knew what was going on, or better yet what was NOT going on in our schools they would be a lot more upset.

    I’ve commented a couple times about recent populist type elections recently. I noted maybe the global intel/5 eyes pipeline may be drying up thanks to Trump. The electoral playing field has been tilted to the left for decades. I said the Farage win was another sign. I thought his was UK and not EU. But it’s EU and the entire EU may be in for a surprise. This makes my theory even bigger. The intel pipeline from US to EU is dry. It’s a level playing field now.

    Wow. And further, can the entire “successful” elections and start of EU (especially the last couple decades with immigration flooding) be attributed to intel sharing all the way back? If Trump dries this pipeline up, it’s incredible.

        No proof obviously. Just thinking like we have heard/read infiltration of tea party, IRS sharing info here in country to disrupt opposition. Any global 5 eyes intel that could be used to infiltrate and disrupt opposition to the global/Soros direction was used and shared. Now that pipeline is dried up and the electoral field is more leveled now. The left has to work on the ground to get votes. They haven’t had to do that in decades. I’m sure 44s intel was shared to all countries in the EU and beyond to infiltrate and target nationalist type movements. That may not be happening now.

        It’s like conservatives are always up against the dems and the media. Imagine if media was somehow neutered or even remotely balanced. For decades, dems in this country have barely had to lift a finger to get votes. Example. Alyson Camerada (sp?) asked Kamela Harris who/what her favorite music was. Do conservatives get that type of question. I know this has dragged on. Just putting thoughts down.

    It really is time for us to form a MAGA Party here in the US and kick as many Dems and fake Republicans out of office. The Republican Party like the Democrats IMO has lost its way and what they were originally founded on.

Before the end of President Trump’s second term in 2024, I believe we may see the emergence of a third party of these registered INDEPENDENT voters who currently wish not to aline with the D’s Or R’s. After all, if you think of it, most independents are conservative yet moderate, President Trump is more an Independent than a Republican.

    • Also want to mention that more than anything else this lawsuit and the Complaint are really all about Gen. Flynn and his alleged romantic involvement with Ms. Lokhova that were a big part of the reasons that the Weissman/ Mueller storm troopers went after Flynn in the first place as part of the phony Russia hoax conspiracy.

      Treepers are no doubt familiar with a lot of the general facts of this story, but I have never seen the entire Russia plot against Flynn so nicely explained with great detail. Lokhova gives a lot of info too about the sleaze bag Halper that I have never read about, plus proves that he has always worked as a spy for the US agencies.

      As our President Trump has made the move to declassify everything, this document makes a good roadmap for some of what will no doubt be revealed about the entrapment of the hero, Gen. Flynn.

      I am more convinced than ever that POTUS must issue Flynn a pardon at the earliest opportunity.

    Was Assange’s arrest, incarceration, and subsequent US indictment in a UK jail pending extradition a Barr plot to protect him, and bring him to the US for a friendly cooperative debrief?

    No, and here’s why.

    As miserable as Assange may have been in self exile in the Ecuadorian embassy, it was undoubtedly far better than jail. Where he has been subject to a full body cavity search, and is locked up in a tiny cell alone without his cat. His every movement is scrutinized 24-7 with no chance of any privacy at all. His meals are now limited, barely edible, and a far cry from enjoyable, or satisfying.

    Those suggesting that Assange would be more cooperative by making his bad situation far worse fail to consider just how miserable his existence has become.

    The only logical explanation for turning up the heat on Assange is to give him a clear understanding of his situation. Leaving two distinctive choices, one sets him free, and the other guarantees a life of constant disrepair.

    Either he is a journalist who received leaked information. Or he is a spy working with a foreign government involved with espionage.

    While it is tough to give up a source, it is the only way for Assange at this point and time, to save himself.

    Also if Barr cut a deal with Assange through his attorneys it would have to include the only thing he wants, and needs. And that is someplace to go that he would want to be. Because if Assange had that he would have left the embassy long ago. Make no mistake, Wikileaks has the support, and financial wherewithal to finance an extraction. Because face it, the Ecuadorian Embassy in London isn’t exactly Beirut.

    I said it before and I will say it again, Trump has held his cards close, and has allowed the swamp to lead out. But Assange is the river card, an ace of spades to fill a Royal Flush. Trump’s got the nuts, and has been slow playing his hand to trap the left into going all in. The time to put the cards on the table is upon us, and Barr is the dealer checking to see if the pot is right.

      Assange gave up his cat long before he was removed from the embassy… apparently, he wasn’t taking care of it so it was given to one of his friends.

      Assange is actually getting the medical attention he needed but couldn’t get while holed up in the embassy. He will also be forced to take showers instead of living in filthy clothing and not bathing.

      Assange was prosecuted in Australia as a teenager for hacking US military systems.

      Assange is anti-American and anti-government.

      Assange knew what he was doing and the consequences. He chose not to face the bogus Swedish rape charges and instead, ran into an embassy seeking asylum. He had truth on his side and could have won his case.

      Yes, Assange showed us Podesta emails during the election season, and the DNC materials. But that is not what he is being prosecuted for – it is for his role in Manning giving him top secret US war materials DURING wartime and attempting to assist him cracking a password. There was an FBI informant close to Assange during that time period… they have the goods on him.

      He can make a deal if he does get extradited to the US for the Manning related charges… but he will have to give up his sources for the DNC/Podesta stuff. That is his only chance of getting out of this mess and finally being allowed to go home.

      I am ambivalent to the guy. He is dangerous but also a hero in some respects. His situation is of his own making.

    EXCLUSIVE: Rumors Swirling that Fired Italian Spies Were Connected in Plot to Eliminate Trump

      “Rumors are swirling that the recent firings of top Italian spies were related to Obama and a plot to set up candidate and President Trump in a Hillary email scandal.

      Earlier this month Italian Prime Minister Conte asked for the resignations of four top intelligence officials after his call with President Donald Trump.

      And now another Internet Sleuth has uncovered some shocking news related to the recent removal of these top Italian intelligence ministers from their positions as top spies in the government.

      The story begins in January 2017 when Computer World wrote about alleged crimes committed by Italian Giulio Occhionero:

      The Tuesday arrest of Giulio Occhionero and his sister, Francesca Maria, has brought to light what appears to be the biggest, and highest-profile, hacking of institutional and corporate accounts ever reported in Italy.

      The siblings have been planting the Pyramid Eye remote access Trojan on computers using a spear-phishing technique over several years, according to the arrest order.

      They attacked at least 18,000 high-profile targets, including former Prime Ministers Matteo Renzi and Mario Monti, President of European Central Bank Mario Draghi, as well as employees and heads of various ministries including Internal Affairs, Treasury, Finance and Education.

      But Giulio Occhionero claimed that he and his sister, Francesca Maria, were set up. A piece reported by Frederico Punzi, writing in The Atlantico, notes their denials and more:

      Occhionero complained to the Prosecutor of the Republic of Perugia and wrote to the U.S. Congress and the FBI. In fact, there are a number of contradictions and suspicious circumstances in the case.

      Occhionero provided the letter that he claims he sent US Congress and the FBI:

      Occhionero claims and it’s reported that:

      Members of Italian intelligence were approached by Hillary Clinton, the Obama Administration, and the Deep State in order to frame Trump by PLANTING EVIDENCE on American servers to force Trump to step down from office.

      In other words, members of Italian intelligence found a target in Occhionero, a Republican-sympathizer who had two servers for his company, Westland Securities, located in America. One was in Washington State, and the other in West Virginia.

      The plan was for Italian Intelligence to hack into these servers, plant classified emails from Hillary’s servers inside these servers on American soil, and then alert the FBI.

      The FBI would then raid these locations, “discover” these e-mails, investigate, link these servers to Trump…

      And then force Trump to resign.

      Occhionero believes that Obama and the former leader of Italy, Matteo Renzi, worked together on this plan and he provides reports of their meetings in Italy before the 2016 election and in early 2017.”

      Should anybody be surprised. Many central banks around the world are buying securities and managing stock prices. There is not a link between business cycle and market cycle any longer because ‘the machines’ of these interventionists have screwed market integrity.

      From Kelly Evans at CNBC on Japan Central Bank:

      “this is my eyebrow-raising stat of the week, courtesy of the WSJ’s Mike Bird.

      Japan’s central bank has been buying stocks – specifically, ETFs – for nine years now to try and support/stimulate its economy and hit its inflation target. (Nine years!! And that’s not even my stat yet.) If you think that would have goosed the Japanese stock market, wrong. Japanese stocks actually trade at a lower forward multiple now, and instead of following the central bank into the market, global investors have been selling to them.

      And because the central bank has been buying Japan’s Nikkei stocks until lately (akin to our Dow, instead of their equivalent market cap-weighted S&P), it’s resulted in some pretty lumpy ownership.

      As a result…drumroll please…the Bank of Japan now owns 20% of Uniqlo’s parent company (Fast Retailing Co.). That’s my stat. Twenty percent! Imagine if the Fed owned 20% of Macy’s or Gap!

      Japanese bonds already don’t trade (okay, that’s an exaggeration, but only slightly). Are Japanese stocks next?

Making him an illegal President resulting in the nullification of all his Presidential actions including but especially his Federal Judges who are appointed for life! Some how his college transcripts must be declassified showing he was a foreign student! Short of that some sort of mass impeachment of all obama Federal Judges! This is just absurd! But all these obama Federal Judges are doing nothing more than the bidding of the deep state not ruling on the Constitution. A plague on all of them!

    Charlie Daniels: Only Two Things Protect America–The Grace of Almighty God and the US Military/

    CNSNews | May 24, 2019 | Charlie Daniels
    Posted on 5/25/2019, 9:43:44 AM by jazusamo

    “It’s the grace of Almighty God and the United States military are the two things that protect America. And the day we stop honoring either one is the day we’re going down.

    To all the families, friends and brothers and sisters in arms who have lost a loved one in the service of this nation, from Hazel, Charlie, Jr. and me and all the folks at The CDB and Twin Pines Ranch, we salute you. We join you in honoring their memories on Memorial Day and the other 364 days of the year.”

    Did anybody hear the Joe DiGenova segment on Howie Carr Show? He said there was a blowup about the situation of the stonewalling of Barr by Wray and the FBI that lead to the arrangement between POTUS and Barr regarding Barr’s authority regarding declass, etc. IG Horowitz has beem so hamstrung that the IG report will be delayed for months because it would be so incomplete without the documents they are hiding. The best part is that Barr is going to go ahead with his investigation and is not going to wait for Horowitz to catch up.
