        I don’t know why ANY nation meekly accepts the premise that hordes of muslims should be shuttled around the world like nomadic tribes.

        What happened to drive them out of their own countries? I remember Muslim women on TV demanding that their men return home to Syria!

        The only people hell bent on shaking everything up, are those who start the wars, those who loot and pillage middle east oil and gas, unleashing angry muslims into neighboring countries like a plague of locusts.

        Note to muslims: Wake up and smell the covfefe! You should be back with your families protecting your own homeland. This whole open borders / social justice concept is a scam to herd people like cattle, at the whim of some greedy UN oligarchs. Good grief.

    I have come to understand how the Left/Dimmies love to create fake crises or over-dramatize real ones to pedal their poisonous beliefs at the top of their lungs, then yell “victim” when anyone else dares to question/refute/challenge said beliefs. I have learned this through Treepers patiently explaining of all the craziness we see in these events so as not to fret, but to trust Right will win. It drives me to read my Bible and rest in those words of comfort and security that will triumph over all. Thanks, Treepers, for providing sanity in these days.

Let’s hope by next election, these opportunites at the voting booth will be nationwide.

      You may have missed the Progressives’ fundamental shell game. Fake or overblown crises allow for more unquestioned money to be extracted from whatever source to quickly and comprehensively fix “the emergency” or “the problem”. But then one opens their eyes and sees there is no progress fixing the problem and people start to question how the money is spent. That is where the yelling of “labels” at questioners comes into play. It is a distraction forcing people or groups to defend themselves rather than the continued pursuit of understanding why the spend has been ineffective. At the heart, this is all theater for the political money-grab.

      Obama had tax payers spending Trillions of tax dollars of our money, not his, on Paris Accords because the oceans are rising. When no one is looking, using a fake buyer’s entity, he buys a $15M mansion 15 feet above sea level on the ocean. Riddle me that one.

        We were the only country in the Paris Accord whose legislature did not approve, let alone by the super-majority vote required by the Constitution. Obama enacted an illegal One-Man Treaty simply by calling it by another name–you know, the sort of dictatorial fiat that the Left always projects onto President Trump.

        Hamilton saw Obama coming and Alexander Hamilton doesn’t trust him:

        “It would be utterly unsafe and improper to entrust Treaty power to an elective magistrate of four years’ duration. An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents. The history of human conduct does not warrant that exalted opinion of human virtue which would make it wise in a nation to commit interests of so delicate and momentous a kind, as those which concern its intercourse with the rest of the world, to the sole disposal of a President of the United States.”–Alexander Hamilton arguing for the Constitution to his fellow citizens in the newspapers, the internet of his day, in Federalist #75

        The whole gist of our Constitution is to divide power to keep government limited–in order to protect your freedom. Obama and his henchmen believe in Unlimited Government and their own Undivided Power. Your freedom is their obstacle.

I propose a blue ribbon commission led by Dennis Prager, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and David Horowitz on the state of free speech in social media to report findings in six months. I’ve offered about a dozen other ideas to the WH. As for Brad Parscale, I have no idea how hard he is work. I only know I’ve heard NOTHING from him on the most critical issue of the campaign and the one most critical to our freedom.

    Notice very little on the agendas about healthcare any more. I healthy economy spends, on the high side 10% of its GDP on health care. The U.S. is at 18% and rising. It was a big issue under Obama, but they almost saw it disassembled save the vote of Chief Justice Roberts. 4 Trillion dollars, almost all of it being extorted in the name of “the elderly”, the “Poor”, and “the children”. They almost lost it their bold greed of ObamaCare trying to squeeze even more money out of us. But now they are being vewy vewy quiet about health care.

        Took a Medical Ethics class at the local community college (something I would recommend to everyone, because a lot of politically contentious topics are covered). One of the interesting facts I learned is that our medical insurance system was totally thrown off budget by kidney dialysis, once it was covered. Additionally, I had no idea that kidney transplants are often rejected by the immune system. Nobody talks about that… we work on the positive expectation that kidney transplants will work, and often they do… but often they don’t.

        By targeting the expensive kidney problem, our President is getting aiming for one of the biggest budget-busters. And if he succeeds… his clueless opponents can bite the dust. Kidney expenses are a huge, huge problem not only for families dealing with kidney disease, but for everyone who pays into the system. There may be better options out there, and researchers can find them.

          Not sure this is accurate… a matched donor will have a kidney “take” 95% of the time for over 5 years (in the US). One from deceased is still well over 80% success rate. The average length of kidney function from a replacement kidney is over 30 years and growing. Some genetic kidney diseases attack only the original kidney, but the replacement would be good for the balance of a person’s life. But with a disease like diabetes, the same body imbalance that attacked the original kidney right away begins attacking the replacement. As with anything, its complicated, but huge strides have been made in the past 30 years. Also remember, Melania has had kidney issues, which has helped bring this opportunity into focus.

            Many, if not most, of our societies health problems and consequently the high medical costs can be traced to our Government recommended/mandated dietary guidelines. Type 2 Diabetes is related to high insulin resulting from processing our high sugar/carbohydrate diet. Heart disease, kidney disease, and various other such maladies can be traced to the insulin resistance (hyper insulinemia). There is some evidence that dementia is also related to this with some calling it type 3 diabetes. The information is available but this is being resisted by those groups that make their living providing products that make us unhealthy and those providing medication and services or procedures that address the symptoms. The cure (or management of) Diabetes was known in the late 1800’s by minimizing the consumption of sugar and carbohydrate foods. When synthetic insulin was developed in the 1920’s this was relegated to fringe medicine.

            Ancel Keys had a belief that all health ills came from high fat (animal based food) and promoted the high carbohydrate diet. His research was seriously flawed as he chose only the data that supported his hypothesis. (Draw your curve, then plot your data!) His faulty concepts were incorporated in the dietary guidelines the McGovern committee forced through despite the objections of other researchers. By the way, his staff member who created the “food pyramid” had no dietary or science background and was a vegetarian. Thus, in the late ’70s, began the grand experiment that has resulted in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and many others.

            Why does this continue? There are literally billions of dollars at stake in the processed food, pharmaceutical, and health industrial complex. Legitimate research and findings are beginning to surface over the caterwauling objections of groups that have some economic, political, or emotional interests in promoting the current diet guidelines. The evidence is slowly being exposed. The data is available but the internet “noise” creates a challenge for most to discern the reality.

            Oh, yes, synthetic meat?? Yet another questionable idea to “save the planet”. The evidence is being exposed in unusual places. An interesting article:

              Diet may help with type 2 diabetes, also drastic weight reduction. Doesn’t help with type one, total loss of insulin production. Nothing but insulin will save you from that. A cousin of my father in WV in the 1920’s died of what they called ‘sugar diabetes’ before insulin became available there, my father-in-law lived in a more civilized area at the same time was able to get it and lived.

              I worked “type 3 diabetes” and Alzheimer’s link in the early 2000’s with a drug that decreased insulin resistance. About 50% of the folks with Alzheimer’s has the gene where this is linked. Showed lots of promise until there was cardiovascular signal (which has since been disproven).

          …looking a the paper the blog cited from 1978 regarding Fluoride and kidney patients…it makes sense…Kidney “patients” would retain more fluoride than non-kidney patients because it’s how fluoride is eliminated. Same with all drugs that are eliminated that way…so kidney patients shouldn’t drink fluoridated water.

          What it doesn’t PROVE, is that fluoridated wafer CAUSES kidney disease. That was why you were inferring. No data to suggest that.
          Uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes is the vast drivers.

            Thank you, interesting observation. Agree that uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes are the biggest part of this problem, and a major health target. I note that it’s difficult for people with kidney disease to obtain unfluoridated drinking water if the public supply is treated as a matter of course. It takes extra energy and money to get the unfluoridated water, and sick people don’t have a lot of either.

              Well, then it goes to the next step of the question is it detrimental? A paper actually came out looking at that and it concluded no.

              The kidney foundation actually has somewhat addressed this.

              Obviously the 7th day folks take it to the next step. It’s their right, but as someone who works in research, we need to follow the data.

              I think the real question is, “Why are they putting fluoride in everybody’s water?” A dentist explained that fluoride needs to be put on the teeth for it to work. Very little stays on the teeth when you drink water with it in it. I have always had great teeth, never drank fluoridated water, why should I have to drink it because Joe Blow doesn’t want to take care of his teeth? That doesn’t make sense to me.

                I believe the idea behind fluoridated public water was trying to treat for spotty teeth, when one of the doctors trying to ‘cure’ that problem also noticed that none of his patients had caries, even though they had the same diet people elsewhere did who had bad teeth. Study showed a natural high level of fluoride in the water.

                auscitizenmom, you may have a low level of natural fluoride in your water below the ‘spotty teeth’ threshold, you also may eat a healthy diet that also involves a lot of chewing (American Indians pre-western civilization and I believe Native Australians were known to have good teeth).

            As bottled water has taken the place of tap water what has changed in cavity stats?
            I lived on well water, as most did in the country, we had cavities coming out of New York actually many tooth problems and after a few years of country living that subsided. I had a good friend from New Jersey who had same exact problems with his teeth. We both were born with no enamel on our teeth. I do not know if living off well water changed anything, but my enamel did grow over my teeth over a ten year period or so.

      Kidney disease, especially End Stage Renal Disease on peritoneal and hemodialisys is one of the greatest chronic burdens of U.S. Medicine, much of the care monopolized by ancillary companies (DaVita) that do dialysis and supply companies for peritoneal. So it is a good target with a good Return on Investment of health care costs.

      My point on topic, however, was noting the absence of health care on the agenda. The globalists do not want healthcare to have sunlight on it, they are milking the U.S. economy to 4 Trillion dollars with it. Many foreign industries involved, milking the U.S. consumer need for health care. Much profit being extorted out of the U.S. consumer in that area.

    This of course caused all sorts of aghast angst among the chattering.

    To me, it seemed he was simply setting a table for Fox News to actually provide a decent panel of moderators. Fox News now has a data point in their considerations, that they might be well advised, to not take for granted their ingoing place. After all, even if many have forgotten, PDJT no doubt has not forgotten, the panel of Baier, Wallace, & Kelly which sought to destroy him from the beginning.

    Eleven months ago, POTUS unambiguously directed our “great and good” government bureaucrats in the DOJ, FBI and the IC to release some specific documents that would tell US some of what we have a right to know about the last Administration’s covert efforts to derail a Presidential candidacy and later to undermine a duly elected President of the United States.

    POTUS quickly withdrew this instruction, citing the objections of “key allies” and our IG’s “agreement” to review these documents on “an expedited basis.”

    Nearly a year later, almost nothing of substance has been declassified and released, and we continue to learn more from George Papadopolous’ twitter feed than from our own government.

    I agree with Sundance that every day spent focusing on other issues is another day that Bill Barr avoids scrutiny for not only his failure to release anything, but for allowing his subordinates to actively obstruct any and all relevant releases.
