    Regarding “The Coup” the link below is a really good read. CTHers have heard most of this before but it’s a good summary piece. It also put’s the bulls-eye on Brennan and Obama who in my mind are the primary culprits. Hard to imagine Obama going down, but this postmortem has to ensnare Brennan (and others) or it is a failure.

        By my math that’s 18 illegal searches against Americans everyday for 5 years. Or if you prefer 126 a week for 5 years or 6552 a year for 5 years according to the info in the link in Teeheemans post above.

            The answer is simple – Obama sought intelligence and leverage over political foes and allies and the ordinary citizen. O’bama’s anti-American agenda was seen as such by most people. O’bama just twisted enough arms to get things like O’bamacare, by the skin of his teeth, and his other policies get enshrined through lack of any opposition.

    Quick thought on Greenland: it’s all about another country altogether, whose leadership would normally be able to predict that cooler heads will prevail when push comes to shove, and therefore they can offer no concessions and in fact can rattle the cage to show their superior position. But that’s too big a risk if Trump is liable to fly off the handle and cancel talks or a deal at the slightest provocation.

        And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority

        Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.

    Crazy stuff going on in Hong Kong. How long are the kids in Hong Kong who have access to the internet, and can see the freedom of the western world, going to stand for their communist government not allowing them those same freedoms?

    How long is the communist government of China going to allow those kids to act out on international television?

    Communism only ends one way.

    How long is the western World going to be alright with buying Nike shoes, when Nike shoes are made in sweatshops in China by a company owned by the same communist government that will soon be cracking kids on the head with billyclubs on live television? When the Chinese government starts shooting college age women in the chest on live t.v. because they’re protesting, do we still have the stomach to purchase Chinese electronics and sleep good at night about it?

      Whatever happened to one of the men who sees this or is around, snatching his ass off the bike, slappping him on the head and telling him if he disrespects a lady like that again next time he gets his arm broke?

      We had a kid about the same age breaking into abandoned buildings a year or so ago near here in a sleepy small little town, that’s exactly what we did. We saw him walking out of somewhere he shouldn’t have been and made sure he knew if we saw him down there again he was going to have a really bad day, now he calls us sir when he rides by on his bike and there’s no more problems.

      I’m not saying you have to be violent to kids I’m just saying when they look for a boundary, you show them where the boundary is. This kid slapping women’s backsides isn’t a bad kid but if somebody doesn’t show him some consequences how will he ever learn?

        Exactly right. Kids with no consequences are not being taught respect for others nor good manners. Kids need structure and being shown correct ways of being members of society. To not do this for them is a form of child abuse and will result in chaos down the road when there are no adults who have any respect for each other as a result. We are seeing this happen already in our schools, media and in the anything goes philosophy that is being pushed by the left. Scary stuff to think when our generation goes away, what’s to become of a sane, rational, productive, functioning society? Adults need to step up now and help correct this.

      • Absolutely right! When my son was 14 years old I discovered some items in his room that obviously didn’t belong to him. And after questioning him I determined that he and a couple of older kids had committed a burglary. I marched him right over to that house knocked on the door and had him return the items. Boy was he pale and shaky. The homeowner turned out to be a police officer who proceeded to explain to my son that if he had been home at the time of the burglary, my son would have been shot dead.

        That certainly made an impression.

        He certainly never did anything like that again. He’s a fine Christian husband and father now in his 40s.

        Oh, stop this cry-baby “sexual abuse” crap. A slap on the butt is not. A slap right back and knocked off the bike is the best answer. Best if done by a father-type man to this boy; maybe even better if done by the “ADULT woman”. This behavior is never permitted (even though we know that adolescent males might try it.)

        We need to stop the cry-baby stuff to “authorities” and respond immediately. I would sure teach my daughter to do so. No one will mess with her. And she respects and likes boys and men. Strong women and strong men is the answer. Includes standing up for oneself.

It sure would not be to cry “sexual abuse.” That is in the territory of hyperbole and snowflakes. I think President Trump would have a quick and easy answer – with strength.

        When I was in college, in one psychology class, one of the girls did the entire class presentation for an hour on female genital mutilation. I am not exagerating when I say sitting there listening to her presentation, I had a panic attack just thinking about it.

        It was a small class, only about 15 of us in there, and she was droning on and on, and the subject matter when examined for an hour was so disturbing, that I literally thought I was dying. I had a full blown panic attack, I thought I was paralyzed, my last thought before everything went dark was that I hoped if I fell out of my chair, maybe the professor could go get a nurse to save me or something, LOL.

        That honestly happened. Eventually I figured out I was just being hypnotized and I slowly came out of it, but let me tell you , this female genital mutiliation stuff, if you look into it, is one of the greatest horrors in the history of the world. Not only do they cut things off, they sew things shut and many, many, many women bleed to death on their wedding night, things like that. Obviously I can’t get into it too much here or I’ll have another panic attack, lol.

          What I was so stunned by is the ignorance of the people on both ends of it; the people who actually perform the mutilations and those on the receiving end. They are so misinformed, uneducated, ignorant, backward; they actually believe it makes childbirth easier. Some very young girls are so brainwashed, they actually look forward to having it done.

          I see this mentality as a big part of the problem with having so many Muslim “refugees” coming to the west. They do NOT assimilate, nor do they want to. As soon as there are enuf of them, they will demand that it be legal, which it isn’t, not here in the US anyway.

            Other parties have to offer up something if they want US Navy protection. No more free rides. US leaving NATO because of welching members is also an option IMO.

            I agree with driving a wedge between Germany and other countries. They’re going to have to look hard at the consequences of having to pay for their own military, namely, that the US is declining to subsidize other countries’ socialist programs.Germany has a permanent position on the shit list at this point, so if they listen to Germany it’s at their own peril.

    We have now had over a half a century of institutionalized Black Privilege. Affirmative action, racial preferences in hiring, contract set-asides, racial preferences in college admissions, free cell phones, free cable TV. And what have we gotten from it? Calls for ever more free stuff and now outright calls for free money, “reparations.”.

    Children of all races sitting in the same classrooms, reading the same text books, hearing the same teachers, and some still fail. Why? Clearly there is more to it.

    After half a century it is time to declare the Black Privilege experiment a failure and begin to examine what aspects of African American culture are perpetuating failure from one generation to the next. It’s clearly not racial. Every successful African American proves it is neither racially dictated nor a product of racism … black president.

    Yeah. LET’S talk about race. But let’s make the topic African American culture.

      Yep Trapper, You’ve hit the nail on the head.
      I realized this years ago and the communists had this knowledge when they made the push for integration part of their “Destruction of America” plan.
      You probably won’t get many “likes” on your post though because most people (and that includes most here) are completely indoctrinated by the “We’re all the same, just a different shade” propaganda that’s been pushed since I was a kid 50 years ago.
      P.C. will forever keep peoples mouths shut on this and the communists know it and depend on it.
      I read arguments here that if Trump does this or that for blacks that they will “walk away” from the dems and vote in their own best interests. Sorry, you’re dreaming.

        A Constitutional Republic provides the opportunities for this kind of life better than any other political system.

    But the progressives make it racial. Education has to be changed because: African American students can’t be expected to write cursive, speak and write “standard” English, have a broad vocabulary, do math, etc. The latest educational “thinking” is that education is a product of the White supremacy, the latest trend is in college English/writing…evaluation should be based on “effort” and not quality of work and for math, it’s #mathequity…..math is White and therefore “unfair’. Calculus prevents POC from becoming scientists, engineers, architects, etc. and should be “dumbed-down”. The latest concept is that the concept of “time” is a White racist concept and expecting African Americans to be “on time” to work, class, meetings, etc. is racist.

    A lot of this crap is articulated by White “educators”; it’s as if they are doing a massive social experiment on how can a “demographic” be made uneducated by the educational system. They are trying to prove “The Bell Curve”.

      • P.S.: Whether or not you think that this is the right thing to do, my point is that this is what you would be doing. You’re trying to lower costs but you’re not taking away the profit motivation. Therefore, to a company that still operates on a “for profit” basis, you are taking away profits. As long as the profit motivation is there, that’s going to be king. You can’t have your cake and eat it at the same time. Which is what they’re trying to do here.

        Removing the profit motive would result in less or zero innovation. Health care is not a fundamentally different economic good that it can thrive and advance without profit motive.

        • Okay, Justin, “we agree to disagree,” and that’s perfectly fine with me.

          I think that the “for profit motive” has been an abject failure – producing neither profits for shareholders nor sustainable, available health care for patients. I think that health care all-around would be vastly improved if people weren’t forced to look at the bottom line. I also think that accessibility to treatment is more important than any innovation. You’re sick or injured and you can go get help and no one is looking at a balance sheet. The focus of the system is availability of the highest quality care to the greatest number of people, not the company’s share price.

          And – “we are America.” So, we can do anything we want if we set our minds to it. Yes, we can afford it. Given that we spend trillions on the business of blowing people up, we can afford to spend a fraction of that amount on healing them. If we choose to do it, we can. Now, we have a lot more factors to consider than other nations do, but if we want to change things, we can.

    10 declassified Russia collusion revelations that could rock Washington this fall
    20 Aug 2019

    https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/458173-10-declassified-russia-collusion-revelations-that-could-rock-washington-this

    But the long wait for transparency may soon end.

    The foot-dragging inside the intelligence community (IC) that occurred under now-departed DNI Dan Coats and his deputy, Sue Gordon, could halt abruptly. That’s particularly true if Trump appoints a new IC sheriff, such as former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the current ambassador to the Netherlands, or longtime national security expert Fred Fleitz.

    Likewise, the president has an opportunity to speed up and organize the release of declassified information by simply creating an Office of Transparency and Accountability inside his own White House, run by a staffer empowered at the level of a formal assistant to the president. That would prevent intelligence agencies from continuing their game of public keep-away.

    Nunes, who helped to unravel the Russia collusion farce, has identified five buckets of information he’d like to see released. One of those buckets, the FBI’s interview reports on Bruce Ohr’s cooperation, was released last week — ***not through a Trump declassification order but, rather, through litigation brought by Judicial Watch, and with heavy redactions.***
