  2. According to Granny, the whole world is full of Russian assets–except the Downtown Moscow branch of Putin Savings & Loan, where Bill gives those fascinating half-million dollar speeches. When Hillary says “Russian assets”, it always means America’s uranium $upply.

      Whenever Bill makes a “Russian assets” joke at the dinner table, Hillary just rolls her eyes and takes a long sip of her Rosé, while Chelsea gives him dagger eyes and a swift kick under the table.

    PDJT knows Hillary allegedly motivated and helped plan the framing of PDJT of criminal acts that was behind Russia/Ukraine to “Protect” Hillary and the Coup from going to Jail.

    PDJT and Common sense knows; the alleged goal of Hillary and the Coup (when PDJT leaves office) is to have PDJT and Family spend the rest of their lives in prison for criminal acts that allegedly Hillary/Coup actually did.

    PDJT and Common sense knows; without Justice for these criminal acts Hillary and the Coup will be back after PDJT leaves office; 1000 X’s more powerful to ensure their original plan to eliminate the U.S. Constitution and replaced it with a Global Constitution will be accomplished.

    Tom Fitton Tweet;
    It was never about Russia (nor is it about “Ukraine”). The targeting of @RealDonaldTrump serves to protect Hillary Clinton (and now Biden) and her enablers/co-conspirators in Obama administration from prosecution. @JudicialWatch #StoptheCoup

    Tom Fitton Stated at Judicial Watch #StoptheCoup; anyone who thinks Hillay is out of the woods yet is naïve and the reason she is not out of the wood yet is because of attacks on the President, it shows you they are very nervous that if things settle down and law enforcement focus became regular, someone like Hillary would still be facing significant criminal liability.

    IMO-I 100% agree with Tom Fitton. I was 100% confident from Nov 2016; PDJT planned to have Hillary face Justice in the future when the time is right.

    Hillary Clinton is allegedly partnered with the Globalist and allegedly the Clinton Foundation a subsidiary of the Globalist Universe. Hillary Emails was allegedly used to communicate (33,000 missing emails) to the Clinton Foundation and the Globalist.

    Hillary and the Clinton Foundation is allegedly one of the largest criminal organizations in U.S. history.

    Hillary allegedly motivated the FBI/DOJ and helped plan the framing of PDJT of criminal acts that the criminals/coup actually did.

    I wanted (hoped) for a long time now that the coup/criminals continued daily attacks against PDJT because this guarantees not 100% but 200% that all criminals will be going to jail for a long time. The coup/criminals have no other choice than to fight till only once side is standing.

    PDJT Tweet;
    @TomFitton HUGE: HUNDREDS of Security Violations Tied to Clinton Emails; CRIME?-Deep State Enemies List Targets @RealDonaldTrump Family and Journalists–To Protect Biden; Senate CAN #StoptheCoup; TRUTH About Obama/Clinton’s Syria mess. MASSIVE @JudicialWatch Update: https://youtu.be/shRo1rSHfjg

    As President I have an obligation to end CORRUPTION, even if that means requesting the help of a foreign country or countries. It is done all the time. This has NOTHING to do with politics or a political campaign against the Bidens. This does have to do with their corruption!

    This isn’t about a Campaign; this is about Corruption on a massive scale!

    As the President of the United States, I have an absolute right, perhaps even a duty, to investigate, or have investigated, CORRUPTION, and that would include asking, or suggesting, other Countries to help us out!

    PDJT knew all of the above and strategically planned from Nov. 2016; Hillary and the Coup must face Justice.

    PDJT knew in Nov 2016; President has an obligation/duty to End CORRUPTION.

    PDJT knows the President is 100% responsible and has a duty/obligation (Power) to the Constitution and the American People to ensure all criminals are brought to Justice. PDJT has no other choice; even if the President has to Micro-Manage the DOJ/FBI and take extraordinary extreme actions to ensure Justice is implemented.

    Judge Jeanine is now using the precise/penetrating language along with Greg Jarrett, Rudy Giuliani, Jay Sekulow and many others; the President has an obligation and is duty bound to implement Justice. Finally it is being stated; PDJT must Investigate/Indict/Prosecute these Criminal Acts or it would be dereliction of duty; referring to his failure through negligence or obstinacy to perform one’s legal or moral duty to a reasonable expectation. In other words, it means willful or negligent failure to perform assigned duties or performing them in a culpable inefficient manner.

    PDJT is fighting for the American People. This is not really about PDJT; it is about the Globalist long time plan in the intentional destruction of the U.S. Constitution and replacing it with a Globalist Constitution. Trillions of Dollars and Power is at stake for the Globalist.

    PDJT knows and common sense tells the American People every second of the day; at the end of this Legal Civil War there will only be one winner and the loser will disappear forever, AND PDJT has only 1-weapon (ONLY ONE) to Win this War; going nuclear with the Criminal Codes. Let me repeat; the criminal codes is the only weapon available for the Constitution to have an on-going concern.

    Criminals/Globalist only concern for the last 3 years; PDJT using his Presidential Powers to easily implement the criminal codes, not MAGA which can easily be reversed in 5 years.

    The criminal codes are Kryptonite to the coup/criminals/globalist; it will guarantee their destruction forever.

    The Criminal codes (Rule of Law) are the shield that protects the Constitution and our way of life.

    PDJT since Nov. 2016 has strategically set up this perfect stage for prosecutions that will all be; one of the easiest cases to prosecute in U.S. History.

    PDJT has an unbeatable Legal Civil War hand to Save the U.S. Constitution.

      Great Summary as Always; Everything stated by you is directly/indirectly stated (implied) and acknowledged by many daily; Fitton, Jarrett, Powell, Giuliani, Sekulow, Carter, Solomon, Levin…

      Paul, periodically you have consistently summarized since year 2015 (Comey not prosecution Hillary) the importance of Equal Justice and the Rule of Law with “logical” and “factual” thinking. Thank You Paul!

      100% correct! It is becoming clear to the American People that Justice must happen for this republic to live on.

      Only the Rule of Law can fight and Win this Civil War against the; Coup, Criminals, Rinos, Media, Business Round Table, Chamber of Commerce who all joined the Globalist and sold the U.S. Constitution for a Globalist Constitution for more Money/Power.

      P/T Micro-Managing (Extremely Important Leverage) the DOJ/FBI is “one” of many of P/T Insurance Policies for implementing Justice. This applies pressure on Barr/Durham; do your duty or else. P/T has a sworn duty to Micro-Manage the DOJ/FBI if needed to save the Constitution and the American People.

        Thanks Paul and Kathy, seems most treepers are in accord with all you’ve stated and the absolute necessity for the rule of law to be strictly applied to punish all lawbreakers or we lose this Republic.

        We have a smattering of eyores ‘no body’s going to jail’ to even ristvan saying Judicial Watch is tilting at windmills re hildogs emails- statute of limitations expired.

        I’ve got $5 bucks with a buddy that Hillary will go to jail. If she doesn’t the President will have failed and we are a lawless country. I am not worried, God is still on His throne and His mercies are new every morning.

          Hello Rhi…EXCELLENT! If I may add a few thoughts of others;

          Hillary Emails Statue of Limitations Expired;
          1. There are so many criminal statutes that have been broken and some have not gone past the statute of limitations. (Judicial Watch, Gregg Jarrett)
          2. The cover-up is current and the penalties are harsh.
          3. How is Hillary going to not perjure herself when under oath? Have you ever heard Hillary state the truth? It is 5-years for each count of perjury. After days of depositions can the accumulation of perjury charges add to hundreds of years?
          4. Let see…if Hillary states she (approved) deleted 33,000 emails than she is stating she committed a criminal act. If Hillary states she did not delete 33,000 emails she will have committed perjury.
          5. There are several hundred traps for perjury because there is a paper/digital and testimonies and whistleblowers and Plea deals etc….

          Nobody is going to Jail = No Constitution = New Global Constitution = American People will not be free….

          IMO- throughout U.S. history battles have been fought and won to protect the Constitution and our way of life. If “negative thinking” of not understanding the importance of the Rule of Law and Justice would be transferred to George Washington battling the British; George would have surrendered to the British several hundred times…apply this to ww1 & ww2.

          Great Generals in Major Battles throughout U.S. history never lost sight of Victory and Marched Forward to achieve Victory. Great Leaders never lost sight of Winning Wars just because of losing a few battles.

          P/T business dealings throughout history has shown that he is not a negative person and is not a linear thinker; he strategically plays the long game to win.

          The formula is extremely easy; either implement the Rule of Law or lose the Country. Start from that point and work forward and never surrender to anything less than Equal Justice.

          This formula is much easier than what George Washington and the founding fathers did for the birth of our Constitution and the United States.

      As we know, President Trump came into office with a long and well established reputation for not losing legal cases.

      Yes, this case is in a league of its own, with nothing in his or the Nations’ experience to compare to, but I think you’re spot on in your analysis and that the President will keep consistent with his winning record in this battle against principalities and hidden dynasties.

  6. Lindsey Graham’s has a singular Defense-Complex-Funded obsession with arming the Mideast and making War to consume the arms.

    • Make the USA Energy Independent to end our interest in protecting Mideast Energy
    … while creating an Economic Upside in the event that Mideast Supply disruptions occur
    • Export USA oil and gas to eliminate Mideast & Russian profits that fund war and terrorism
    … creating an economic foundation for nations to ally & reciprocally trade with the USA
    … and cutting USA energy costs to attract manufacturing and suppress inflation
    • Assign ownership to Mideast Nations for keeping neighborhood stability and peace
    … creating a need to buy USA-produced arms for defense
    … and requiring that Mideast Nations fully fund any support from our military
    • Allow the Mideast’s fanatical Tribal and Religious Factions to wear each other down
    … Just as Iran and Iraq did during Saddam’s reign
    … and as the Kurds have done with Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran throughout recent history

    Make it harder for Mideast Radicals to reach and enter the USA than it is to enter the EU!!!

    Posting here under the presidential politics thread as I hadn’t realized until reading this that there are parallels to the constant barrage of prosecution/bias against President Trump as there seems to be against the Netanyahu of Israel who has been under a constant 3 year legal battle for seeming quid-pro-quo (this instance based on positive news reporting supposedly meant to be in exchange for favorable political pay-back to the news organization/reporters).

    It’s almost as if Schiff et.al are merely copying the Israeli prosecutors playbook in this latest impeachment inquiry. The outcome in both instances, here in the U.S. as well as Israel would appear to be an end to democratic, republic, representative forms of government.

And it wouldn’t be that hard to take the hard drives, or a copy of the hard drives, unless the DNC kept the bums under constant supervision.

          Maybe the DNC wanted to keep doing whatever it was they were hiding, but made sure to move it out of country. But if that were the case, a no extradition type country makes more sense than a corrupt hell hole that you have bought off and control. You never know when a higher bidder has outbid you.

It lasted hundreds of years so measuring earth’s temperatures over the past 150 years (the thermometer wasn’t invented until 1840) is certainly going to show a warming trend. That’s what happens when an ice age ends!

    • Good, simple summary of climate pattern history, and I agree that news media doesn’t get science in general (never has). At a point, too much oversimplification renders ideas and concepts unusable.

      One small correction. You’re about two millennia off on the thermometer. It isn’t an instrument that had a specific invention date. It was more of a process of developing methods of measuring technology that became more and more accurate over time.

      Hero of Alexandria wrote about the design of his air temperature-measuring device, and he died in 70BCE. Galileo probably made the greatest contribution toward improvement in accuracy, and that was in 1592. You can buy modern replicas of Galileo thermoscopes today. They’re beautiful. Here’s a very brief history on thermometers, from a company that makes temperature gauges:

    Sundance, I have a request, will you write a essay telling us the consequences of impeachment.
    I honestly, perhaps naively, am not sure what will happen if Congress succeeds in impeaching and convicting President Trump.

    Will President Trump have to leave office?
    Nancy says We The People do not get a vote on impeachment, is that completely true, if she gets him out – is he out permanently
    Or can he be re-elected in 2020?
    If his name is not allowed on the ballet can we write him in?
    If we write him in and he wins. what happens then.

    For some reason I think it is important for all Americans to be told, in absolutely the clearest terms the consequences if Pelosi prevails. We get dazzled by the day to day skirmishes, and all they do is obscure the big plan what is actually going on.
    Or maybe it is just because I can not credit what they are doing so I poh-poo it, but that needs to stop.

      Oh Betty, it is all in the Constitution, have you read it?
      In short – House impeaches (indicts), Senate holds the trial (convicts).
      Any real indictments for law-breaking are pursued after removal of the President – see Bill Clinton, who lied under oath.
      What the House is doing now is a political impeachment, not criminal, against all established rules, procedures, and norms.

        I know that, but i seems to me she has hinted that she is using the star chamber technique to gather all the ammo she can and then will spring the whole thing, stamped Congress and the waiting Senate into voting while We The People are still trying to sort our her “evidence”, and within days it will be all over and we will be like “wooh, what just happened?”.

        What I would like is something I can copy, paste and source to spread all over the internet to try and promote a sense of urgency in We The People.

        I am uncomfortable with post and comments that tell us “don’t worry, it will never happen” when there is a whole concerted effort by know and unknown actors who are hell bent on getting it done.
        The Hillary/Jill Stein skirmish/distraction is an example what we used to call “shiny thing”, or “Look, Squirrel”. They are keeping their eye on the ball and we are being distracted daily, hourly.


    • @ChicagoBri says:

      Impeachment = indictment. Unless the Senate votes to convict, which requires 67 votes, all that will happen is that President Trump’s base will crawl over broken glass to re-elect our very stable genius.

    • As the other commenters correctly noted, IF convicted (not just impeached), President Trump would have to leave office, VP Pence becomes president AND Mr. Trump would be permanently barred from holding federal office in future. No automatic additional penalties unless pursued in court, subject to statutes of limitations.

      But it’s an awfully big “IF”.

    There are no media accomodations at Camp David. I really hope Trump chooses Camp David and then says, “There are no media accomodations at Camp David. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. But of course there would have been great media accomodations at Doral. Oh, well.”

    That right there would get him 1 million more votes.

      Maybe even 2 million more votes. At his news conference, Mulvaney made the point about Camp David, what a lousy venue it was for the G7. It has NO accommodations for the media, reporters have to commute an hour in/out to events.

      Comes under the category of being careful about what one asks for. Let ’em grouse about the inconvenience, serves ’em right.

      Not just no media accommodations at Camp David … about the best there is in the area is a Super8. Most of the cabins at CD are pretty rustic. No chance at all for any protests and media allowed in is very restricted- they are bused in and out daily.

      They hated the 2012 G-8 that was held there. President Trump can explain repeatedly that is was the Choice and Demand of the Democrats and Leftist Press/Media. Not his choice .. their choice. Only President Trump will be able to fly in. It’s a hoot!
      Sincerely hope this is the choice. Perfect for PDJT, he works at these meetings, no play time for him.

    I can’t wait for Sidney’s filing that she mentioned coming this Tues.

    Something tells me she is going after earlier spying on Flynn. And if so she could be going after all the contractor spying and maybe even the Hammer spying to show this has been their game since 2009.

    This has been a hot button of hers for a long time and she would be the perfect one to expose all of their illegal spaying.

    It could blow EVERYTHING up IMO!

    Well, the World Series is coming to town…the nation’s capital, that is. Now, I realize in the great scheme of things, this is no big deal to most, but it is the first time the fall classic has been played in Washington DC since 1933…and, the last time a DC team won it was in 1924 (with the great Walter Johnson, I might add). If the current ownership has any guts, it would invite the President to throw out the first pitch for game #3 when the Series moves from Houston to Nats Park on Friday, October 25. BTW, Calvin Coolidge did so in 1924 and President Trump is certainly in his “league” as chief executives go IMHO! Anything would beat the image of Obama’s girly throws over the years in his “mom” jeans…SMDH!

    That being said, I peruse a Nats fanblog on occasion and it is evident that many of their fans hate President Trump, so I don’t know what kind of reception he would receive at the park, but I bet he would go if asked. The owner of the team, Ted Lerner, is 94 years old…being born a year after the Washington Senators won the World Series in 1924. I’m not certain of his politics, but he grew up in the DC and Maryland area, so I would suspect he leans to the left, but what do I know? OTOH, he is a big supporter of Israel so perhaps the President’s maneuvers in that area would appeal to him a bit…who can say? In any event, I think a ceremonial first pitch from our POTUS would be a nice touch, but I doubt it will happen, sigh

      Probably some of each, but another venue at this point is believed by some cool heads – who are on PDJT’s side – to be a better idea… He is already getting the message out, along with the info that it will be more expensive to go elsewhere. They never get him down…
