          The Narrative has succeeded. It’s been established in the public mind that Trump committed some crime. It is now a matter of assessing the degree and impeachability of the crime. Did it cross the threshold or not? Congratulations, GOP. You’ve let them do it again.

          Exactly, 5thranch. There is NO case but we hear more and more that high crimes and misdemeanors are exclusively defined by the House–in this case, Nancy’s House of Horrors. Make it up as they go is now how they run our govt.

          The precedent is now set. After DJT, if another Republican is ever elected president, the Left will automatically impeach. They will not stop until we are under one party rule, no matter how many years it takes. And, if future Republican senators are as spineless as the Lindsey Graham/Mitch McConnell Cabal, cheered on by uniparty thugs like Romney, trials in the Senate will always result in removal. The people will tune it out, bored with more of the same, contrary voices will be silenced. We’ll be too overworked trying to pay their tax requirements to have energy to fight back.

          Donald Trump’s presidency is their grand Petri dish experiment. If they pull this off, the Constitution is dead and buried right between the rule of law and equal justice.

          As millions upon millions of Americans got up yesterday and went to work, gave an honest day’s labor for a day’s pay, and our President put in a full day of work for no pay or thanks, our Overlords continued to preen in front of cameras, wasting millions.

          President Trump should put together one of those electronic signs that shows minute by minute how much money Pelosi’s House of Horrors has and continues to waste on presidential ‘investigations’. Mueller got up and left the table sticking We, the Taxpayer with a mega million bill. How many House staffers have and continue to spend their entire work week on digging for more lies to concoct? And BTW, are We, the Taxpayers still subsidizing those staffers health insurance premiums?

          The tweet from Mrs. Pinky Thoughts begs the question as to what motives could our govt use against us. We’re neck deep in those motives, Pinky. Try to keep up.

No one will be able to be President without having to put up with the administrative state. If these Representatives and Senators don’t see that they will be the administrative state’s next targets they are as foolish as I believe them to be.

            It should have ended after Wednesday’s opening act.

            These Senators that are already scoping out how they are going to hold their version of the show trial are cementing the end of what has been, up until now, a shining beacon and breath of fresh air for the whole world. Selfish scum is what these Senators are to even be giving their House counterparts the silent support by going along with this coup.

        Thing is a person need not be an adherent of any particular religion or even be “religious” in traditional ways to comprehend the unmistakable reality of evil. Examples both big and small are constantly in our faces—we have only to be willing to see it and accept evil for what it is. Doing something to thwart it tends to be hard to accomplish, a task for the truly courageous, those who are willing to step into those shoes deserve our admiration, respect and gratitude.

        Thank you for posting this Rynn69. The second reason he states as to why God chose Trump struck me the most. He is making the elites and the rulers reveal their true spirits. How many politicians have claimed they wanted to move the embassy to Jerusalem? How many claimed they wanted to secure our borders? How many have claimed they wanted to help the people such as the poor and middle class?

        As a former Democrat that usually voted independent, I always thought of myself as informed. I used to believe the Pelosi’s and Schumer’s, and many of the others (yes, many Republicans as well), that they actually wanted to help the people. But oh how their ugly side has transformed them into visceral, hate filled, spewing liars. I now see the lies, the hate, the rage, and most of all, their true spirits.They want power, and will do anything and everything to get it, and care nothing about the cost.

        I am only one person; think of how many others are awakening at this moment.

            We need voices on our side who direct our actions NOW. Who tell us the path forward..NOW. By the time this gets to the Senate, our chances for victory are greatly reduced.

            There are Americans who do not read Sundance and who do not wake up everyday daydreaming of tearing down federal institutions but who DO support PDJT and share many of his policies and values. THOSE people are the ones who will tune out if WE do not lay out a clear, concise defense of the President and if we do not conduct ourselves reasonably.

      I agree with that list, very suspect of the retiring senators.

      Several of those on your list would have to be bought, because they’d never be elected to anything again in their states. Rubio, Shelby, Portman, Sasse and Ernst, would be done. Maybe Burr and Tillis.

      Your list comes to 17, five short. Chuck Grassley is also retiring in a couple of years. There may be others that have no intention to run again and might opt for a golden parachute.

      Then you have McConnell, Cornyn and Graham, none of which I trust. Now you’re up to 21.

      The last vote? Tim Scott? He seems quite easily influenced. Cruz’s revenge? The possibilities are endless. However, we have to look at the other side of the aisle. There are susceptible D’s in red states that would be ending their careers too with a vote to convict.

    “Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state. “We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

    “Markowitz demanded the National Guard’s help just an hour before Bloomberg’s press conference, claiming that the NYPD and FDNY are “brave — but overwhelmed” by all the challenges Sandy brought when it visited the borough on Monday night: flooding, power outages, and looting.”

    Great day for the good guys. I didn’t think the Dems could pull another choke job on the level of Mueller’s hearing, but today was in the zip code.

    Also happy that Chris Wallace again exposed his Trump hate to the nation today. Let everyone know now, before the 2020 election heats up.

    Without being complacent, I’m feeling good about all the impeachment proceedings. Just going to set that aside.

    Biden looks done. More and more is coming out about Hunter (and Joe). There’s a reason why Bloomberg jumped in and I’m guessing it’s because big-time Dem donors know Biden just won’t hold up.

    That leads me to an old concern — Deval Patrick. I’ve talked about him in previous comments like this one:
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/06/12/june-12th-2018-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-509/comment-page-1/#comment-5496907

    If Deval is in — and it seems he is — then he’s the Obama guy, the Axelrod guy, the Valerie Jarrett guy. Axelrod is the ‘dad’ to both Obama and Deval. Same tactics, same rhetoric, same everything.

    Patrick concerns me because Axelrod understands how to operate on what is termed “white guilt”. He’s very proficient at this, as was/is Obama.

    POTUS has increased his standing among minority communities. If POTUS has a weakness now, it’s with Elite Whites and Wannabe Elite Whites. That’s the Achilles Heel. And a candidate like Patrick can do damage with those groups.

    It’s similar to how Joe Biden can do damage with the older white crowd and POTUS. Scranton Joe still has some believers, people who might vote for him over POTUS but who would not vote for anyone else over POTUS. i know people like this.

    Patrick will work on a similar split group, just not the same one.

    I’m still feeling very good about things overall, and very good about Trump 2020.

    But, before, I only had concerns about Biden. Now I have really no concerns about Biden but am now concerned about Deval Patrick. It will be very hard for Patrick, for sure, but he’s the only one of the Dem candidates who I look at now and think “they might be able to win in 2020.”

    Hopefully, the Dems will continue to make mistakes as they have up to this point. And Patrick is not the opponent. Bloomberg? Nah. He has no base. No charisma. And he’s a “bad guy” because he’s a billionaire, whom the Progs say they hate.

        I hope so. I don’t think his chances are great, just better than any other potential Dem.

        Obama is coming back on the scene soon with his memoirs. I expect a heavy dose of “woe is me because of Trump’s birther stuff” in that book. Michelle will also be making the campaign rounds.

        One good thing about the current zeitgeist is that the Obama Era is over. The Trayvon Martin moment (which Obama used for 2012) is fading.

        It’s not easy to recreate that vibe. So there is a lot of work to be done by the Axelrod gang if they are serious about Patrick.

        Still, it’s possible. I am optimistic and wishing only for a POTUS 2020 win, just trying to look over the terrain and see what might be on the way.

      Deval was my governor here in Massachusetts. The guy is a nincompoop. He’s not smart, he’s not witty, he’s not charismatic and he has skeletons in his closet, including a rapist brother-in-law whom Deval tried to get off the hook. IIRC, he also tried to get another felon freed, a man who committed an assault, or something along those lines. POTUS would make mincemeat out of him.

        Patrick only came in after Bloomberg did. Definitely a desperation play (like “I’m not letting Bloomberg take the easy road here and I don’t”). And Patrick flamed out fast when he ‘explored’ entering the race the first time.

        The sooner he fails, the better. IMO.

      At this point it is a mistake to apply pre-2016 political calculus to today’s landscape. Too many are aware or becoming aware of the failures of the past and the deceptions that were used to entice an outcome by guilt or by the false promise of hope and change.

  16. Greetings, Treepers…
    I hope this is a appropriate venue to ask this question:
    I have a friend who is a Trumpster, but hasn’t voted in years. He says it is due to the Electoral College which renders his vote useless. Can someone please give me a clue concerning his reasoning? I don’t want to argue with him, I just want to understand his reasoning. No one has been able to help me this far. Thanks in advance!!

        Look at Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. If Trumpsters in those states had such an attitude in 2016, things would have turned out differently. If more Trumpsters had gone to the polls in NH, CO, NM and NV the electoral college landslide would have been even bigger.

        Last, but not least look back to 1984. Reagan won blue states. Why? Because R’s showed up in droves and voted, along with some D’s that crossed over. The Mondale voters were discouraged and stayed home. Every vote counts, it’s true. Look at Florida in 2000. If some R’s had your friend’s attitude we’d have had President Gore.

        One last thing, down ballot votes. So many of the house races lost in 2018 were razor thin margins. Down ballot votes are critical too. Maybe he’s in a solid blue house district, but he can add his vote to senate or maybe he can just help elect one republican to a local seat. That’s important because local elections have the biggest impact on his day to day life. Who knows, by electing that one person locally he may help launch a career……a star is born, like the people that helped elect the new AG in Kentucky.

        If he doesn’t vote he has nobody to blame but himself for the representation he ends up with.

      • Tell him that his vote will be counted. Even if his vote does not get Trump an electoral win for his state then a popular vote would not have either. BUT!!! If everyone who was a Trump supporter went out and voted (even in a blue state) then the everyone will discover that he has millions of supporters even those stuck behind the blue wall. Wouldn’t it be amazing if Trump amassed millions more votes (even in blue states)? That would shut down the whole “he lost the popular vote” whine. Plus it would encourage others in blue states to walk away from the dem party or those who are pro-Trump to not feel so alone.

        I may not be able to wear a MAGA hat outside but MY VOTE on election day will let these commie dems know how many of us Trump supporters there really are. The MSM and the commie dems want to make us feel isolated. Your friend’s vote will show them that there are even millions more than they thought.

      Tell your friend that according to Brad Parscale there is a high percentage of people attending Trump rallies that have never voted (but will in 2020). He is NOT alone. There are also a lot of Dems attending his rallies that will vote for Trump. If there was ever a year his vote could matter it is 2020.

      There were blue states who voted for Trump in 2016….there may be a couple more in 2020 (they are targeting some to flip).

      Also, the down ticket matters. Trump is going to bring people out to vote….his vote could effect down ticket also.

      He is NOT alone….others that don’t normally vote will be showing up. Who knows what difference it could make.

    Who is in Charge?

    Seems Mr. Taylor and Mr. Kent (and many others in government service) have much the same issues as a young West Point graduate had while I was his battalion commander. When I took command of the battalion the young officer was serving on the battalion staff. During my first staff meeting I laid out the basic standards I expected of each officer to include I wanted each of them to feel free to render their professional opinions regarding any/all administrative/operational activities of the unit. I also stated that for all operational planning I wanted a minimum of two courses of action with complete staff coordination completed before submitting the final recommended plans to me. Within a month of my arrival we received a rather intensive mission. During the decision briefing the young officer raised his hand, and to the aggravation of the executive officer/other officers on the staff stated he wanted to insert his suggestions (that were apparently presented during staff planning sessions, but not included in the final plans). In that it was the first major operation we were assigned since my arrival I listened to him, thanked him, and dismissed the staff after informing them to be back in my office the next morning for my decision/final orders. At that meeting I announced my decision, issued a couple of plan adjustments, and dismissed the staff with an execution order. The young officer asked to speak to me in private so I told him to stand fast. By the time the other officers had left my office the young officer was almost in tears and stated: “Sir, you told us you wanted us to feel free to offer our opinions. Sir, I feel you should have included my recommendations in the final plans because they are text books. It was my impression that you were going to run this battalion with some democratic principles!” My response was: “Son appears your understanding of my remarks was made leaving out one glaring fact. As long as the Army and my superiors hold me personally responsible for every single thing that happens or does not happen in this unit, the best you can hope for is a benevolent dictatorship!”
    Seems Mr. Taylor, Mr. Kent, and many others in government service do not realize why the American people put Donald J. Trump in charge!

    Xi and his gang are at full on murderous and now reaching out to PornHub to spread their propaganda,

    Does the US really want to make a deal?

    “China’s messaging against the Hong Kong protests has found a new outlet: PornHub

    As Twitter, Facebook and YouTube shut down accounts spreading China’s narrative about the Hong Kong protests overseas, resourceful patriots are putting their videos on another extremely popular platform: the world’s biggest porn site.

    Beijing has been waging a disinformation campaign against Hong Kong’s protests since June, when the city began to see mass protests sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill. Chinese state-owned media outlets have depicted the protesters as violent separatists advocating independence, although that is not a key demand among protest participants, who have been calling for greater democracy and an inquiry into police brutality. As the disinformation efforts extended to overseas platforms—often quite clumsily—first Twitter announced it was suspending tens of thousands of accounts, followed by Facebook and YouTube, which shut down 210 channels that posted videos about Hong Kong in a way that suggested a “coordinated influence operation.”

    Shu Chang, a Chinese online commentator with over 3 million followers on Chinese social media platform Weibo, said in a post (link in Chinese) on Tuesday (Nov. 12) that she and other internet users had uploaded a number of propaganda videos on PornHub after being unable to put them on YouTube.

    “YouTube would not allow us to upload those videos so we have no other way but to post the videos to PornHub,” said Shu. While Shu did not identify the videos she and other users had uploaded, searches by Quartz on Wednesday (Nov. 13) for phrases like “Hong Kong rioters” found at least a dozen recently uploaded videos. Since PornHub and other porn platforms are blocked in China amid a crackdown on “spiritual pollution,” users would need to use a virtual private network to leap the great firewall and access it.

    Six of them were from a channel named “CCYL_central” that joined three months ago, and has so far uploaded 11 videos in all. Its videos on Hong Kong ranged from Hong Kong citizens expressing their praise for Hong Kong police, to news clips from Chinese state broadcaster CCTV condemning the protesters for violent behavior. The channel describes its acronym as standing for the Chinese Communist Youth League—but it’s unlikely to be actually affiliated with the youth wing of the Communist Party. The channel, which said its favorite book is one written by Chinese president Xi Jinping on politics, has so far garnered 9,000 views and 32 subscribers.”

    Come on senators, do what’s right and begin sanctioning the bloody bastards. Pass the Hong Kong Human rights and Democracy Act.

    Unless the economy craters in the next year, Trump has an incredibly strong hand to play.
