    • To me, Donald Trump is the very first President that we’ve ever(!) had who is a sophisticated(!) negotiator. (He is also the first President since Eisenhower, to my knowledge, to repeat Eisenhower’s coined phrase: “military industrial complex.”) He’s the first to realize the enormous economic power of the United States, and to know from this that, even when you’re carrying the world’s largest Big Stick, it’s probably not the right thing to do to simply use it as a bludgeon.

      He knows that his country routinely struts around wearing a coat covered with Big Buttons that all say, “Push Me!” Instead, he is a Chess player. “Here’s the man who is in command of The World’s Biggest Stick,™ and you don’t(!) know what he will do next.”

Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.

        • Not many years ago, “derivatives traders” were selling “securities” supposedly based on “sub-prime” (read: worthless) mortgages. They made no attempt to link any of their securities to any actual worthless-loans: they simply sold them, knowing that in the end the Fed would wave its magic wand.

          Lately, they’ve enslaved a generation of College students under mountains of debt … even though “a college” is really just a collection of classrooms, much like any public school … once again merely to sell “derivative securities,” and once again with no serious attempt to link their paper to any actual obligation.

          Messrs. Glass and Steagall were extremely wise men who, having begun to emerge from the Great Depression of 1929, identified some of its true causes and passed legislation to stop it. Messrs. Dodd and Frank then proceeded to sweep them aside.

          Face it: “The Emperor Has No Clothes.” New York City “traders” will stare slack-jawed at computer screens with numbers (all prefixed by “currency symbols of various sorts”) whirling past far too fast to count, and – being the Institutional Fools that they are – they will Believe It. Knowing that the Government will on-cue produce more toilet paper … from somewhere, don’t ask dumb questions … with which to wipe their asses.

          Wanna turn this – and this nation – around? Make things. Here. No other nation on Earth can do what we can do. Make our computers, our phones, our shoes, our socks, our toasters, our blenders, our … everything … right here, just like we used to do. The rest of the planet won’t stand a chance. We’ll be making so much “real money” that we don’t have to keep staring at those screens.

    FTA “A former ethics lawyer predicted that President Donald Trump will be impeached from office.
    Richard Painter, who was the chief ethics lawyer for former President George W. Bush from 2005 to 2007, tweeted a video of House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler on Thursday morning, writing that the current president would be impeached. “It’s happening,@realDonaldTrump is getting impeached. Anyone who doesn’t support@JerryNadler and the work of his committee has no respect for the Constitution,” Painter wrote.”

    Just more evidence of the uniparty! I have absolutely no use for George W. Bush or his brother from another mother Bill Clinton! So according to this idiot Richard Painter I have no respect for the Constitution but that fat tub of lard leftist Nadler does? Good grief this is such BS!!! Another NeverTrumper exposed!

      In due time, Chairman Nadler will play his … deuce. The Articles will be carried before the House with some appropriate ceremony, and I frankly predict now that they will fail there. Because not every Representative in that room is actually a Lemming, even if they’re wearing a blue T-shirt.

      Face it: “if you want to Impeach somebody for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ you’ve got to have a crime” … and you simply don’t. Sure, you want to, but if you actually did you’d have no reason to be thumping your chest. It would be “a simple matter of Law,” irrespective of whether anyone [politically …] “supported” you or not, just as it legitimately was, in the case of both Nixon and Bill Clinton. (I can’t speak for Andrew Johnson.)

      Yes, it really sucks for you that you have a $40 million dollar nothing-burger … that the Justice system reached a legally binding conclusion that there was no cause to pursue criminal charges based on everything that you did. That the Constitution also specifically declares that the Congress is not a Court. That your quarry stands innocent of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and that you in fact have no authority to find differently – without which finding you cannot impeach.

    • Fuel costs for unnecessary premium fuels, hybrid/battery-system recharging/replacement
    • Insurance costs for both Collision Damage & Medical

    This will drive them to RETHINK, REINVEST in and RELOCATE their SUPPLY CHAINS
    • Changes to Materials for strength and affordability rather than lightweight at all costs
    • Changes to Design for strength and affordability and safety, using new Materials
    • Retooling of Manufacturing for new Designs of Components, Modules and Subassemblies
    • Re-Automation of Assembly at every Stage of their Supply Chains
    • Re-Location of every Stage of their Supply Chains to the USA wherever possible
    … to avoid making the same mistake of investing in China/Asia for fleeting market/labor access
    … to leverage Automation and AI that minimizes Labor content-and-cost
    … to protect Intellectual Property and avoid Unfair Trade Practices
    … to avoid Tariffs and lost USA Brand Loyalty to Make-in-USA Competitors
    … to avoid the inevitable Buy-from-National Producers in less-than-free Economies

      • Number one, they’re too expensive. 
      • Number two, they’re not nearly as safe. 
      • They’re lighter, much thinner, much more flimsy.

    From the day POTUS apppointed Barr as AG I’ve repeatedly posted Barr’s extreme anti-second amendment past record. Some here pooh-pah’d my postings. Well, here’s what we got when POTUS appointed the attorney who defended paid federal hit man Lon Horiuchi. Defacto gun registration that’s in *complete contravention* to the Gun Control Act of 1968 which states, in effect, the federal government shall not create or maintain a registry of gun owners.

    But Barr doesn’t give a poop about that. He’s an anti-gunner. He’s now the USAG. And he’s gonna make sure he gets yours and my guns registered. By any means possible. Even illegally.

    If this passes you can kiss your gun rights goodbye. And I’ll stay home for the 2020 election if Trump signs it. Trump NEVER WAS a true second amendment supporter. He’s done great work on everything else but he’s thrown me under the bus on guns. If Americans have no gun rights, they have no America because they open wide the door to confiscation and the final subjugation of what was America. If that happens, you can thank Trump.

    And don’t give me any cr@p about that or start on your ‘if you don’t like Trump go away’. Guns are all we have against tyranny. If you don’t know that now, you will when America is like Paris, Berlin, and every other free country overrun by Muslims and run by progressive communists.

    From Gun Owners of America;

    The Daily Caller has released a memo being circulated by Attorney General William Barr to coerce weak-kneed Republican Senators into passing gun control. He’s bringing the Toomey-Manchin Universal Background Check and Registration Bill back from the dead after Republicans defeated it in 2013.

    What’s different this time? Barr is lying to Senators about what this new bill would do.

    Here’s the truth: under this bill, virtually every single gun owner would have a Form 4473 or an indistinguishable “Bill of Sale / Chain of Title” for your firearm. And given that ATF is already illegitimately scanning 4473 forms into a national registry, this will only exacerbate an existing problem.

    We need your help cutting through Barr’s lies and getting the truth out to Republican Senators before they take our country down a dangerous road where Americans like YOU are added to a government registry for exercising our constitutional rights. Please add your name to our pre-written letter informing Republican Senators about the TRUTH behind this deceptive gun grab and warning them that if they vote to slash our rights, gun owners won’t vote to re-elect them.

    >>>>> William Barr claims that this bill would deal only with “commercial” transactions, but deceptively defines “commercial” to include virtually EVERY private sale. <<<<>>>> And because your purchase will be on file with the ATF, when a future President Beto O’Rourke (or Joe Biden) decides it’s time to come “take your AR-15,” they’ll know who has them and where you are. <<<<>>>> Gun Owners of America tried to warn the Senate and President Trump about nominating an anti-gunner like William Barr to be the Attorney General of the United States, given his previous support for a semi-auto ban. Now we’re seeing the consequences. <<<<<

    We hope that this time — with the help from voters like you — we can successfully warn the Senate to strike down Barr’s gun control push and prevent America from taking a dark and dangerous turn.
    Please add your name to our pre-written letter informing Republican Senators about the TRUTH behind this deceptive gun grab and warning them that if they vote to slash our rights, gun owners won’t vote to re-elect them.

Tillerson served as the US top diplomat for 14 months – from February 2017 to March 2018 – until Trump fired him via twitter.
    According to the Harvard Gazette, Tillerson said that Netanyahu was “an extraordinarily skilled” politician and diplomat, although “a bit Machiavellian.” He said that the prime minister builds good and “useful” relationships with leaders and countries that he figures he will need in the future.

    “In dealing with Bibi, it’s always useful to carry a healthy amount of skepticism in your discussions with him,” Tillerson was quoted as saying, adding that Israel would share “misinformation” when it fell it was necessary to persuade the US.

    “They did that with the president on a couple of occasions, to persuade him that ‘We’re the good guys, they’re the bad guys.’ We later exposed it to the president so he understood, ‘You’ve been played,’” said Tillerson. “It bothers me that an ally that’s that close and important to us would do that to us,” he said.

    A spokesman for the prime minister responded by saying, “Secretary Tillerson, Israel is the good guy.”

    During his short term in office, Tillerson – a former CEO of ExxonMobil – had little to do with the Israel-Palestinian diplomatic efforts, with that issue placed instead in the hands of of Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

  33. POTUS is ENDING CATCH-and-RELEASE in 2 weeks!

    RE: Press gaggle yesterday on Air Force One,

    ACTING COMMISSIONER MORGAN: Yes, sir. So hopefully, within the next couple of weeks, because of the network of initiatives and policies by this administration that’s really been supported by several different entities within DHS — USCIS, ICE, as well as CBP — we’re confident that in a couple of weeks, we’re going to be able to end catch and release at the southwest border.

    THE PRESIDENT: There will be no more catch and release. Nobody coming into the country.

    ACTING COMMISSIONER MORGAN: That’s right.

    THE PRESIDENT: It would be a big — a big step. And that’s without the Democrats. It would have been easier — you know, if we could have done it the other way. But because of what we’ve done through regulation and what we’re doing with Mexico, we won’t have catch — within two weeks, we’ll be free of catch-and-release — releasing people into the country.

      I hope PDJT is going to catch and then remove them to Hawaii while they wait for their court date. They can’t escape from there on aircraft to the mainland – everyone leaving Hawaii for US has to show passport or visa for landing in the US mainland.

      Let the radical dems running hawaii support them while they wait for their court hearing to be deported for illegally entering. Far cheaper to fly them to Hawaii and release rather than hold for 30 days. Of course, you give them the choice – we bus you back across the border to mexico or get on the airplane to hawaii and take care of yourself there.

        I hear you, and if it weren’t for the many Hawaiians who don’t agree with or support their liberal leadership, it at least makes conceptual sense…..although I’m not sure it would make as much practical sense….wouldn’t gitmo be more appropriate?

        But this does raise a still hugely overlooked issue that still hasn’t broken through the msm’s longstanding barrier of reality-based coverage of Illegal immigration, which is that illegal immigration hurts people.

        It hurts individual American families and neighborhoods, that are made up of hard working, law abiding people just like you and me, who suffer the nastiness and crime, over-crowding and hostilities of it every day. It drives families and communities out of their homes.

        Unless one has experienced it firsthand, it seems easy to joke about putting illegals on islands… or any other location……except our own communities, of course.

        I wish we could impose the caretaking duties of housing awaiting deportees on those responsible for using our money to create the crisis, but it’s not going to happen in pelosi’s community or wasserman-shultz’ or patty murray. It’s going to happen to yours and mine.

        Fortunately, the President is taking many of the right steps to make such arrangements unnecessary by enacting the means to eliminate the invaders’ ability to enter.

        And just as importantly, he continues to take back the the language used in the American discussion of illegal immigration. He’s busting the chains of political correctness imposed by the left and their lapdogs in media. We’re back to calling it by its real name and dealing with it for what it is: crime. It’s not a matter of opinion. It’s a matter of law. The fake news media have lost their cover thanks to POTUS’ big mouth and loud twitter habits.

        He’s giving illegals the best up-front choice of all: Don’t. Come. Here.

    A message to all trolls visiting CTH or other web sites, who are either playing or actually are stooopid:

    When PDJT was asked during his 2016 campaign how Mexico would pay for the wall, he consistently pointed out that it would be easy because Mexico’s balance of trade with the USA was about +$70 billion per year. Clearly, and obvious to anyone with at least two functional brain cells, if the wall cost some $20 billion or so, eliminating the $70 billion deficit would offset the wall cost several times over.

    Yet, the stooopid and/or disingeneous trolls contend that candidate Trump “lied” because Mexico isn’t writing a $20 billion check payable to the USA treasury.

    I ask myself: how can they really be so stooopid? There are two possible answers: 1) yes, and 2) they are trying to convince the lo-fos who seem to represent the vast majority of their constituents, with a phony argument. Either answer is pretty bad for the communists who have taken over the demo/socialist/communist party. To them, I say: keep banging your heads against a brick wall and cooking up lies, it’s good for your health.

    California has long been an ATM for politicians of both parties. But even so, Trump’s haul this week is expected to be eye-popping. At Tuesday’s secretive Portola Valley luncheon, where ticket prices ranged from $1,000 to $100,000 and attendees were whisked to an undisclosed luncheon by shuttle, Trump raked in $3 million. Later that night, at a Beverly Hills soiree hosted by billionaire developer and longtime Trump supporter Geoffrey Palmer, the president added another $4 million to his tally. On Wednesday, he’s expected to bring the trip’s grand total to $15 million with a Los Angeles breakfast and San Diego luncheon.

    That’s $15 million in a single state in less than 24 hours. By comparison, Kamala Harris raised $11.8 million nationwide during the entire second quarter of 2019.

    “So, when you look at all these emails that Judicial Watch had to uncover, not Congress, not the Justice Department voluntarily, certainly not the media, you have these DOJ documents confirming that the [25th Amendment] coup discussions did take place, that there was a dishonest effort to try to the mitigate the DOJ’s involvement in this, where’s Congress on this, where’s law enforcement on this? For all the noise you’re hearing, I don’t hear anything about investigations by the Attorney General and by his US attorney in Connecticut. Are they investigating this? I don’t think so. I hope so, but I haven’t seen any indication that there’s anything serious going on in that regard.”

      “And we were wrong about that.”

      The leaders then went on to describe what they call a “two steps back strategy,” which will involve putting together a team of almost 100 business leaders to call on the Trump administration and lawmakers to end the trade war with China. Some of these executives have ties to the farming business, an industry that has been negatively impacted by the tariffs.

      They’re also aiming to educate 100,000 activists in at least 35 states about the potential negative impact of using tariffs to battle China. Those volunteers will then be expected to start reaching out to their congressional leaders. The network hopes these activists can convince lawmakers on Capitol Hill to stand up against the administration’s current trade policy. The latest phase of the Koch campaign is expected to cost the network millions of dollars.”
