  1. The Federalist carried this story about what Hope Hicks did say during her testimony … further demolishing the “Russia collusion” hoax.

      Excellent article.

      Another one worth a read is here:
      https://thefederalist.com/2019/06/24/top-8-takeaways-hope-hickss-congressional-testimony/

      Both pieces from Margot Cleveland are fantastic.

      My opinion of Hope Hicks went up significantly. Very smart Young woman. Witty, too. Kept her calm when few people would. She very impressive and would get my vote if she ever ran for office.

      From the 2nd article (linked above), near the end:

      “Hicks’s testimony also proved that, in addition to being beautiful, smart, and funny, she’s patriotic. Although the Republicans yielded the majority of their time so as not to waste Hicks’s time, Rep. Louis Gohmert posed an interesting question:

      Now you’ve been through a great deal on behalf of your country. I can’t help but be curious, if you had known the hell that you would be put through as a result of the Clinton campaign hiring a foreign agent to get information from Russians and that people within the FBI and the DOJ and potentially intel would be working against the president, would you still have gone to work for the president?

      You could almost hear the refrain for the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” in the background as Hicks replied: “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity I had to serve, and yes, I would do it all over again. . . . I would do anything to make a positive contribution for our country, and I’m very grateful I had that opportunity. I’m proud of my service, and I thank all of you for your service as well.”

      Wow. Good answer, Ms. Hicks. Well done.

        You may not understand. Denial of accusations by Leftists is to them confirmation of those accusations. They will simply conclude that she lied under oath and proceed accordingly.

      FTA “By the end of her nearly eight hours of testimony last week, Hicks obliterated many of the Russia-collusion talking points pushed by Democrats and the media for the last three years, even more expertly than Mueller did in his special counsel report. As one Democrat noted during the hearing, Hicks was “with [Trump] every day,” during both the primary and general election. She would have known had the campaign colluded with Russia….Yet her testimony made clear there was no Russia strategy, significant contact, collaboration, or collusion, which is why when Hicks was asked whether she thought the president “might be angry about [her] testifying before Congress today,” her ready reply punctuated her significant—but unreported—testimony: “I think the president knows that I would tell the truth, and the truth is there was no collusion. And I’m happy to say that as many times as is necessary today.””

      Not a word of this by the co conspirator msm! No wonder Margo Cleveland was furious at the msm! Aren’t we all!

We seem to be just a “case study”.
      we have a large google plant close to me and They are expanding constantly. I happened to talk with a contractor just yesterday who mentioned they are expanding all over the U.S.A. And other countries. Huge facilities, enormous amounts of money. Nobody in our region even compares.
      They are also trying to keep everything secret? The contractors all sign up to never discuss the place. I guess it’s a big deal or maybe hype for publicity. You would never think Pryor Oklahoma would be home to this place. Infrastructure alone must be massive.

        Yes, and there’s really an uphill battle to deal with the apportionment scam Democrats are running.

        Simply asking the question “are you a US Citizen” on the census won’t allow for changing the apportionment process for the House and the accompanying electoral votes. It’s just asking the question.

        The SCOTUS has long held that apportionment based on “persons” includes all people, not just citizens. Even Congress passing a law to change apportionment to be based on citizens only would face some serious court challenges.

        The good thing is that the 2020 elections won’t be affected by the 2020 census. But the 2022 elections most likely will.

        Asking the question is just the first step, and hopefully the Democrats lose their challenge to merely asking the question.

    • The basic problem here is that no one can create “peace in the Middle East” except the people who actually live there. A large amount of territory was conquered in a war that lasted six days. They’ve been warring about it ever since, and no one can make them stop doing it except they themselves.

      Others can’t tell them – nor compel them – to do anything at all “in the name of peace.” What is actually happening in each case is that one party is attempting to use third-party nations as a proxy in their fight … and they will tell that third-party nation whatever they want to hear in order to persuade them to do it.

      We should also remember that these are and always were tribal people. They live in harsh desert country where “national boundaries” are not meaningful. Nonetheless, such boundaries were drawn … by conquering Allies following World War 1, who were carving up the spoils of War after the Ottoman Empire picked the wrong side. These people don’t recognize these boundaries, because they were never decided by them. They were imposed by conquerors.

        • I submit that the solution – if these people actually want one – can only come from the people themselves. As long as they define themselves by their hostility towards their own kin, they’re going to continue to live in this bed of their own making. The USA can’t directly intervene and make them do differently.

          For instance, President Carter signed the “Camp David Accords” and felt really good about doing it. But did the behaviors actually change because of it? Unfortunately not. So, well-intended actions supported by well-intended words (written and oral) did not “change another’s mind.”

          Peace, if these people want it, is going to be very hard. A lot of people on both sides are going to have to swallow their pride and their nationalism and realize that they have common interests which are ultimately more important than their bombs and guns. And no one on Earth can do it for them.

Peace will only come when people on both sides want it more than they want anything else in the world, and override the will of their war-loving leaders to force it to occur.

          • There is plenty of “bigotry and hatred” in the Christian Bible, too. The first several books are filled with passages where God orders genocide. (There’s even a scene where the prophet Samuel eviscerates a king that was allowed to live, and orders the Israelites who allowed it to be killed for disobeying God’s command to have destroyed “every living thing.”) (Samuel 15.)

            And, by the way, there are also repeated instances of “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” Same God. Go figure.

            No, belief in Islam does not automatically make you a murderer who believes that “God told me to.” What you do comes from you, not from books or “God’s words” that you cling to for justification of your evildoing. Whether you are Muslim or Christian or Anything-Else or Nothing-At-All.

            No, there’s a lot of truth in the song lyric that says: “I can’t make you love me if you won’t.” Peace in a region has to come from within that region … when the desire for peace among the people grows strong enough to silence the voice of leaders who are demanding war. Golda Mier was absolutely prescient, and absolutely right.

              “I can’t make you love me if you don’t, You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t.”You make some fine points about a people having to love peace instead of war.

              Still, If you consider God to be the creator of life, and also the One who decreed death upon mankind as punishment for disobedience, the fact that those who were disobedient to His command in the early books of the bible, were ordered to be killed, takes on a different perspective.
              God also can bring back those who have died , to life again. His outlook is different than ours, in that regard.

              The world is in chaos,often, and we are used to it.
              Gold tells us “Thou shall not kill” and “Do unto others, as you would as you would have them do unto you. Again, God desires men to love and obey His Word for everyone’s peace..But we won’t do it!

              When God told the Israelites to wipe out a group of people & all their animals & property, these groups were Nephilim (offspring of the fallen angels that mated with humans – known as Giants) these giants all through the bible (since the curse in Genesis) tried to destroy the Jews to wipe out Jesus’ bloodline.
              One figure was left alive, disobeyinf God’s order, his descendant was Haman. Haman talked the Persian king into killing all the Jews, until Queen Ester stood up & saved her people…Haman & all his sons were hung on the gallows built for the Jews. Former ambassador of Israel, Dori Gold, told the story of the Nazis on trial in Nuremburg: when the trial was going on the Nazis called themselves Haman.
              God’s command to go to war & wipe these mutant peoples out did not contradict the 6th commandment. War & murder are 2 different things.
              Bible believing Christians believe Jew Hatred is Satantic!

        This is more than just agitation by corrupt leaders to distract the populace while the leaders rob them blind. There is a lot of that. But there is a stronger, uglier hatred. One that will kill it’s own, for daring to want peace. One that will never stop, barring a complete repudiation of the religion that breeds this hate.

        It is really hard to achieve peace in places like Northern Ireland where every grievance is cherished and memorialized. And when peace is achieved in places like South Africa, it is greatly endangered by political revivals of old grievances. Grievances that never die.

        But those places can’t hold a candle to the cherishing of grievances perpetuated in the area of Israel. Grievances were an essential part of the founding of that religion. And bloody massacres against the perceived offenders were also part of the founding. And both have continued nonstop since.

        Peace is just not going to happen. These are great ideas, but making people’s lives better just won’t be accepted.

          Todays “religion” is merely an ideological vehicle to defeat opposing views through lawlessness, intimidation and abuse of the justice system. Citizens of third world countries are used to it.

          Your personal opinion is Biblical and 100% accurate! Our Lord and Saviour does restore peace upon His return. The deception is (for many, not all) that when the world is crying out, “Peace, peace, we finally have peace” it will be Satan fooling the unlearned that he is the true christ. But he comes at the 6th Trump, 6th Vial, & 6th Seal (666) not at the 7th. Those who wait and don’t worship him will witness and worship the True Christ.

        You’re right about the Middle East. There’s a reason it’s called The Graveyard of Empires. However, the biggest issue is a perfect fit for tribal cultures like the ones we find there and the most difficult one to deal with: Islam. 

        As we all know, Islam is a violent political conquest ideology, veiled as a religion. Its mandates supersede tribal conflicts, but may still contain the tribal element, since tribes will are generally of a specific sect or one of their around 72 sub-sects. Islam is a complex cognitively dissonant system that can be understood though. Westerners once understood it, but today, our biggest mistake has been to view it through a Western world view and to accept, or be silenced by, the propaganda of Islamic apologists, both Islamic and infidel. That works well for Islam and its goals (and globalist destabilization), but for us, it’s a wholly inaccurate and very dangerous view.

        The Sykes-Picot Agreement sounds manipulative and it was, but it also came when Westerners knew what Islam really is. Europe was well acquainted with Islamic invasions. I can fault the deceptions and methods used, but I cannot fault the goal of trying to keep Islam in its post-Ottoman weakened state. Who would have guessed that decades later, the very people who sought to thwart violent Islamic expansionism from reoccurring would be the very people who aid and abet it today?

        Unfortunately, the idea only slowed Islam down for a short while anyway. The Muslim Brotherhood was born in the late 1920’s to reform Islam back to its true roots. Instead of marching invader armies to conquer lands, they learned to recapture the Middle East and expand outward through the hizrah (migration to spread sharia), cultural and violent jihad and greasing palms with oil and its wealth. Sykes-Picot or not, Islam would have still been, and still is, Islam.

        Make no mistake, just because the Sunni and Shia blow each other up, doesn’t mean they don’t subscribe to the same 3 “holy” guide books, with a few nuances that aren’t relevant to us or their goal of a worldwide caliphate, or that they won’t join together to fight a common enemy. They have, they will and they do.

        No matter what internal conflicts exist, removal of Islam’s “religious” duties is nearly an impossible hurdle. Islam does not believe in free will, the Golden Rule or individual rights. Only allah has rights and they are required to force and enforce them through sharia law. It would require removing mandates they believe are divine revelations from mohammed/allah. That’s like telling Christians that what God and Jesus said must be removed from Christianity.

        It’s not wholly “impossible”, but it will take, first and foremost, exposing the truth about Islam to take away Islam’s ability to deceive and to open the door for change from within and without. Then apply other means of pressure, such as leveraging the removal of the death penalty for apostasy from sharia-compliant countries and instituting penalties for apostasy murders, so Muslims can safely leave Islam, removing sharia blasphemy laws, to open the exchange of ideas, severely restricting the Islamic population percentage in non-Islamic countries, and not allowing sharia, in any form or disguise, to darken another door, etc.. Islam must see that adhering to Islamic Doctrine has no positive benefits anymore.

        IOW, Islam must fail completely for its adherents to see their god is not THE God and cannot deliver success into their hands. Only then will many be able to grasp the deception they’ve been taught and open their minds to being individuals with choices.

          Excellent analysis. I strongly concur that Islam is a Political movement, dressed up in religious garb. It also is supposedly in its final stage of perfection and therefor, its adherents are not disposed towards any reform. I believe the MB strongly opposes even a discussion about it.
          I believe the most peaceful approach is separation of our realms. If the totalitarians want to pursue war, well, we will have to give it to them good and hard.

          Great post. Very well explained, and not news for the few who have studied the Koran and followed the documentation of their modern ‘world take over’ as they see it.

          “It’s not wholly “impossible”, but”

          The only error in the entire post, it IS wholly impossible. Hard though it may be to grasp for some, Islam IS the worship of Satan. Aside from the obvious, blowing up children, decapitations, genital mutilations, etc. it’s more important to note the Biblical Prophecy regarding whackadoodle Islam.

          It’s a very deep study in Hebrew & Greek, too deep for a simple post here, but be aware, the locusts of Revelation are these same whackadoodles. They WILL rise against Jerusalem en masse, in this generation (Fig Tree generation) and we all are going to witness it before Christ’s return. Anti (‘instead of’, not ‘opposite of’) Christ will be here first, fooling most that he is going to rapture them away.

          2 Tim. 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God…not to be ashamed…” (by believing Islam or the rapture).

            kp, don’t disagree with a word you wrote. My possibilities are the only ones I see, other than the Enemy’s army being defeated by salvation, which is what I pray for. Both are connected. As I said earlier, changing Islam would require removing mohammed and allah. “Nearly” impossible, but with God, all things are possible and maybe it’s more about the perspective of how mohammed and allah are removed, not about changing Islam. I pray for Muslims to get that reprieve of a more open and free society and that no matter how temporary or long it may last, it will be enough.

            Remember in Revelation when the Wh*** of Babylon is destroyed, pitch will run like rivers, from Yemen to Dudan, the topographical descriptions of deserts, mountains and sea shores, etc. and that God will call His children out of her before it’s destroyed? IMO, the best candidate for that painted lady is Saudi Arabia. A reprieve from Islamic dominance in the Middle East, where people who have never heard the Truth, will have the opportunity to find “the Truth” that will set them free, is my hope and prayer. There would be no children for God to call to safety…unless God has a plan for them to hear the Gospel and to multiply them greatly. Of course, as soon as Islam regains strength, it’ll go right back to the Median mode of conquest. I suspect that will be their last “reformation.” 

            Islam is the inverse of Christianity. A dark mirror image…an opposite and an “instead of”. It’s not a battle between the ummah and the infidel. It’s the battle between good and evil…God and the angel (or light) that fell from the sky, the morning star, the Great Deceiver…only a few of the names found in the Qu’ran for allah that are also found in the Bible for Lucifer. I think you’re right.

              Some things aren’t possible.
              He cannot lie. He always tells the truth.
              He cannot make us love Him, else it’s not true love. He wants us to freely GIVE Him our love from our hearts. Anyone who has ever loved and lost, understands this truth.

              His Word states clearly that He “wants everyone to come to salvation, but they all won’t”. Thanks for responding…Love deeper studies by all Brothers & Sisters in Christ. Bless you and yours…kp

There are plenty of needy people and only so much money to around. Those who “game” the system are literally(!) stealing money out of the mouths of the genuinely poor.

      Instead, they want to shoot the messenger. No one’s talking about combing through the rolls of beneficiaries to determine how many of them are frauds. It’s as though nobody really wants to know. And I would certainly like to know why not. If someone has easily demonstrated that a hole exists through which deliberate fraud can be perpetrated, why isn’t the first order of business to fill that hole, and maybe to compel fraudsters to refund the money which they weren’t entitled to?

      I became a Medicaid whistle-blower in November 2018. I won’t divulge company names but we, professionally licensed employees, were asked by our employer to fudge medical documents so they could collect a larger sum of Medicaid money for their community program. I refused. I was threatened with repercussions. I reported them to the State. The State at first seemed to be outraged, they had heard it was going on in several companies, and they were going to take a “hard” line. Long story short… the company I worked for got their wrist slapped, the person in charge of ordering us to falsify state medical documents did not get fired, I and several other professionals like me, were forced out.

      I struggled for a while wondering why the hammer did not come down on their heads, after all it was blatant Medicaid fraud. Then one day it dawned on me. The State was “in bed” with these companies, colluding if you will. It kept the Federal money flowing and they were not about to give that up. In fact, these programs have been expanded. I could tell you things but I must stop here, let me just say their push towards American socialism has already much begun and is up and running in many areas.

      At least they will draw away the most left Dem voters as a splinter effect. And it highlights the inroads that communism has made in America the past few decades. Will be interesting to compare and contrast the Dem vs Comm platforms when published. Bet there will be only a hair difference. Could finally convince the few quasi-rational Dems left in the Party that perhaps they should shift right.

    This is becoming absurd. Ravelry is a knit and crochet community for the love of Pete. I used it to buy designs as I can store them and my project notes in a library. In some cases, it is the only place some designers use to sell their designs. I have to wade through all sorts of anti Trump rhetoric, but now, I am forbidden from so much as responding, or putting up a Trump-positive design, comment, project, etc. They took the tool for reporting internet censorship down, ggg.

    CDN: Barack Obama’s shadow government of coup plotters in exile
    written by L.J. Keith
    Jun 24, 2019

    WASHINGTON: “It used to be a truism of American politics that we only have one President at a time. That there was a strong tradition ensuring the ‘peaceful transition of power” from one administration to the other. President Barack Obama is obliterating those quaint traditions of American democracy. Indeed he seems to have set up a government in exile, in Washington DC, while he seeks to undermine and sabotage the sitting President. (Trump claims ‘Obama had to know about’ efforts to undermine presidency)…”

    All, I cannot believe this is happening. I am a serious knitter. I’ve belonged to Ravelry, a knitting website where members can get patterns, sell yarn and patterns. There’s forums and groups And millions of members all over the world. Yesterday the following policy was announced:

    New Policy: Do Not Post In Support of Trump or his Administration
    Sunday, June 23rd 2019

    We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry.

    This includes support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content. Note that your project data will never be deleted. We will never delete your Ravelry project data for any reason and if a project needs to be removed from the site, we will make sure that you have access to your data. If you are permanently banned from Ravelry, you will still be able to access any patterns that you purchased. Also, we will make sure that you receive a copy of your data.

    We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.

    Policy notes:

    You can still participate if you do in fact support the administration, you just can’t talk about it here.
    We are not endorsing the Democrats nor banning Republicans.
    We are definitely not banning conservative politics. Hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions.
    We are not banning people for past support.
    Do not try to weaponize this policy by entrapping people who do support the Trump administration into voicing their support.
    Similarly, antagonizing conservative members for their unstated positions is not acceptable.
    You can help by flagging any of the following items if they constitute support for Trump or his administration:

    Projects: Unacceptable projects will be provided to the member or made invisible to others.
    Patterns: Unacceptable patterns will be returned to drafts.
    Forum posts: right now, only posts written after Sunday, June 23rd at 8 AM Eastern
    Profiles: Please do not flag profiles yet if the only banned content is an avatar or avatars. There is not yet a flagging system for those.
    Much of this policy was first written by a roleplaying game site, not unlike Ravelry but for RPGs, named RPG.net. We thank them for their thoughtful work. For citations/references, see this post on RPG.net: https://forum.rpg.net/index.php?threads/new-ban-do-not-po

    Update history

    Sunday, June 23rd @ 8:00 AM Eastern: First version
    Sunday, June 23rd @ 8:12 AM Eastern: Clarify that if you are permanently banned from Ravelry you will receive a copy of your data including any purchased patterns.

    This is EFFING KNITTING! Knitting. WTF?

    The above is an example of what happens when OUR SIDE plays up threats, tick tocks and such.

    Those that support PDJT need to EITHER deliver on whatever they are constantly going on and on about, LIKE exposing the Russia hoax, OR switch topics to the many accomplishments that PDJT has achieved for our country.

    What does it take to get people to see that constantly raising false hopes in people MAY work temporarily but does LASTING harm if it continues too long.

    The Tick Tocks, threats to declassify and the trust-the-plan BS neither to STOP or be fulfilled. Otherwise, OUR SIDE is going to hand next year to the Democrats because a hell has no fury like a scorned woman or single issue base. And neither immigration nor exposing Deepstate are my priorities, so this is not a threat to abandon PDJT, who I consider the greatest president of my almost 60 years.

    The Supreme Court on Monday struck down part of a federal law blocking trademarks for names or logos bearing “immoral” or “scandalous” images — including profanity and sexual imagery.

    The justices said in a unanimous ruling that the law violated the constitutional rights of designer Erik Brunetti. Registration for his clothing brand “FUCT” (pronounced as the individual letters F-U-C-T) had been denied by a federal tribunal.

    The decision, which the justices did not immediately comment on Monday, will leave in place the U.S. Court of International Trade’s ruling from March that allowed the president’s tariffs……
    ……The legal challenge is at an early stage before a federal appeals court has weighed in. The case could return to the Supreme Court later.

Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I take vengeance on them.’”

In-state as little as $2,500 and you could easily get a scholarship to pay for it all. “Student loan debt” is nothing more nor less than a Wall Street scam, adopted when they couldn’t sell more derivatives based on “sub-prime” (sic) mortgages. That $500,000 that you can never repay might be $5 million in “securities” on ten or more separate balance sheets … none of whom can actually trace a (legally-required) chain of custody back to you.

          Student loan debt is a “Wall Street Scam”?

          You do realize that over 85% of the student loans made since 2010 have been directly from the government, and not by banks, right? And that about 80% of the $1.5 trillion in outstanding student loans is owned by the federal government, not securitized by banks?

          Further, I haven’t seen any evidence that there are nearly the same level of side betting on student loan defaults as there was in the housing industry. Do you have any evidence that credit default swaps on student loan trusts are significant, or are you just guessing? Goldman Sachs, for example, won’t write CDSs on student loans.

          The only “scam” is the fact that credit is so easily granted by the largest predatory lender in the known universe – the Department of Education.

          So please tell us how it’s a scam by Wall Street again?
