    So Sweden has dropped is investigation into Jullian Assange alleged rape case.

    Does this open the door for Assange to be extradited to the US come Jan to be silenced some more by the DS?

    If you want to know IMO if Barr is a white hat or a black hat with regard to PT (not the institutions) then ask if he has yet spoken and deposed Jullian Assange about his comment that the DNC emails were NOT given to Wikileaks by the Russians.

    There is absolutely no acceptable reason Barr and or Durham have not had a direct conversation with Assange IMO.

    He is a FACT witness to a major piece of evidence the Special Counsel sold Americans on that the DNC Server was hacked by Russians and they gave the emails to Wikileaks and thus this whole Russia Collusion BS

    Good gosh, Mr. Barr isn’t it time you level with the American people and tell us if you and your team have spoken with Assange?

    A man lost his life on the streets of DC, who worked for the DNC where various people are on record saying the emails came from the inside and you and have one of the premier IT spy guys in Binney saying the emails had to have been downloaded internally.

    To ignore this evidence would be equivalent to if the government ignored the rifle and bullets of Lee Harvey Oswald.

    IMO, Watch what people do or don’t do vs what they say.

      Why is he still being held in the UK? I realize the US has charged him. Is the UK holding him because of the now-dropped Swedish charges or the US charges? If the latter, why haven’t they extradited him to the US already?

        I think the answer to my questions is in the wikipedia page for Assange:

        On 11 April 2019, the Metropolitan Police were invited into the Ecuadorian embassy and arrested Assange in connection with his failure to surrender to the court in June 2012 for extradition to Sweden.

        The US tried to get the UK to extradite Assange to the US:

        On 2 May 2019, a first hearing was held in London into the United States request for Assange’s extradition. When asked by the judge whether he consented to the extradition, Assange replied “I do not wish to surrender myself for extradition for doing journalism that has won many, many awards and protected many people”. […]
        On 13 June, British Home Secretary Sajid Javid said he had signed the US extradition order. On 14 June, a procedural hearing at Westminster magistrates’ court decided that a full extradition hearing should begin on 25 February 2020.

        OK, so if his extradition hearing isn’t until Feb 25 2020 and Sweden dropped their charges, should the UK release him and let him return to Sweden?

  7. The whole “Quid Pro Quo” is BS.

    If you give someone money you generally expect something in return. If I give money to a baker I expect a bread in return.

    The problem is that we give these countries money but the USA gets nothing in return. What does however happen is that corrupt politicians – or their children – (Pelosi, Biden, Schiff, Romney) and special interest groups (military industrial complex) get benefits.

    With over 20 trillion in debt and broken infrastructure, what really should happen is to stop paying other countries and take care of America First.

    The other long term solution is to reduce the size of government to 10% of what it is now. If you remove the incentive, the corruption will go down automatically. This is how you drain the swamp.

    We should get rid of whole agencies (CIA comes to mind), downsize others and move most of the agencies out of D.C. (e.g. Dept of Agriculture should move to Iowa).

    This would really drain the swamp and corruption.

    It will not happen overnight, but by getting more Republicans in and throwing Dems and Rinos out we will hopefully get to it closer step by step.

    US National Debt Spiked by $1.3 Trillion in 12 Months

    The US Gross National Debt has jumped by $1.28 trillion as of today, compared to 12 months ago, to $23.04 trillion. And these are the good times. The economy is rocking and rolling, we’re told. How will this debt balloon during the next economic downturn? Yes, that was a rhetorical question. It’s better to not even think about it. And no one is thinking about it

        I read the article, and I think the author gets a few things wrong. Unfortunately, I’m not enough of an expert to completely refute his contention. That said, the FED has always “bought” debt, but never on the open market. One needs to understand the difference between “public debt” — the bonds and bills issued by the Treasury to anyone who wants to buy them, and “intragovernmental debt” — which are non marketable bonds that the FED issues to represent IOUs that one part of government owes another. The biggest example of this is the stuff in the SS and Medicare “Trust Funds”.

        The overall National Debt is a combination of the public debt and the intragovernmental debt. Currently, about one third of the Debt is intragovernmental debt.

        When Treasury has to redeem any of the special bonds in one of those phony trust funds to pay benefits because it doesn’t have enough cash from SS or Medicare tax revenues, Treasury has to issue new public debt to cash the IOUs. This action DOES NOT increase the National Debt, but it does transform the debt from intragovernmental to public debt — and thus require Treasury to pay more interest.

        One of the very first things that President Trump did after taking office was to send his Treasury Secretary to Fort Knox to determine if the gold was still there.
        He has also put forward three people for positions on the Federal Reserve board that support a gold standard.
        I suspect that in the next crash when the banks need another bailout they will not get one and will be broken up. The president could just re-value the dollar against gold and reduce the debt buy 90% in one stroke.
        I do believe that this is what he is planning.
        There is a very good reason why for the first time in 30 years central banks are buying tons of gold.

        In today’s utterly broken system of so-called “finance,” one person’s debt … to be paid-off someday, and whether or not it ever actually is, is “money in someone else’s pocket, right now.” This is called a “security,” and now here comes the disco mirror-ball: “derivative securities,” which is a security interest in somebody else’s security interest (in somebody else’s… you get the picture).

        So this is how financiers parlayed billions of dollars in worthle… pardon me, “sub-prime” … mortgages into a mythical paper fortune. Then, when nobody believed that fable anymore, that’s why they put every college student in America half-a-million dollars in debt (no joke …).

        This emperor is of course butt-naked, but we are still left with millions of times more “money” in circulation than assets which exist on this planet. And plenty of people who count themselves powerful and rich, and who intend to stay that way.

      The Tea Party is why the deficit dropped.

      As Sundance has said many times, the Democrats had locked in their trillion dollar extra crisis spending by using CRs instead of budgets.

      Republicans won the House and passed sequestration in 2011 to start in 2013. And that is exactly when the deficit dropped. But to pass it and get The One on board, it had to hurt the military most.

      But the tea party was harrassed out of relevance. R’s took the Senate in 2014, and the drop stopped to be replaced by a slow increase.

      Then Trump won in 2016 and rebuilding the military was added to the slow increase.

      The graph only begins to estimate the high price we are paying for putting Pelosi back in charge of the House.

    Notice this letter is generated 9 days after PT July 25 2019 call with Ukraine.

    It also fits with a lot of what Glen Beck spoke about last week.

    I wish Sundance would do a thread on this as IMO this whole Ukraine BS is about the money and where a bunch of it went.

    I was charmed yesterday by the brave Jim Jordan’s attempt to argue the facts of the Democrats’ impeachment case, but I’ve come to the gloomy conclusion that we, Democrats and Republicans, left and right, we no longer share enough common ground to amicably settle big questions. There can only be winners and losers. The dinosaurs like John McCain or Mitt Romney who pine for the bipartisan world of the ’50s are, at best, fools and nuisances.

    Adam Schiff is conducting a Soviet-style show trial. Trump has been implicitly declared an enemy of the state, and they long to punish him. Fill in the crime later, if necessary. I look down the Bill of
    Rights, and I see Trump’s rights being violated, or the attempt to do so, again and again. The latest was Pelosi demanding he testify against himself (Amendment 5, of course). The Whistleblower is still anonymous in the Democrats’ eyes, violating Trump’s right to confront witnesses against him (Amendment 6; in fact they seem to be systematically violating every clause of the Sixth).

    Any earlier generation of Americans or Democrats would not have done what Schiff is doing because, they were Americans. The Constitution would have supplied the moral guidance to deter these authoritarian impulses.

    This day has been coming since the end of World War II. The International Socialists, worldwide, believe they won the War, and thereby won the right to rule the world. While the Soviets lost the Cold War, the Globalist Left, inside America and out, remain convinced their ideology must prevail.

    I have no prescription to offer, except know the truth, and the prediction that our fate rests in the hands of a few brave men and women.

      Today during the hearing was when I learned of it. It’s my understanding nobody knew about this (except the few people Vindman told) until the hearing today. Well Trump probably knew about it, and his intelligence people.

    Am on hold with the White House waiting to leave a message of encouragement for President Trump. 202-456-1414.

    When Donald Trump became our President we had letter writing campaigns to make sure he knew we were fully behind him. Today we need to have a letter writing campaign to show him that now, more than ever before, we are fully behind him — and will stand in front of him if necessary.

    Every day lately I ask my husband if he is ready to head to Washington, D.C. in support of President Trump.

    He asks what we will do there. I say we can chain ourselves to the White House fence. Two old people acting like dumb college kids might make the news, but most likely not knowing they censor all things positive concerning President Trump. I consider chaining myself to the White House fence a positive thing to do in this upside down, Lord come back soon world.

    Please, write to President Trump now. Please pass this call-of-action to write to President Trump onto everyone you know ASAP, and ask them to write to President Trump now.

    Please give words of encouragement and support to a man who once squeezed my hand for giving him a kind word of support. . . he is an unbelievable worker, smart, lets stuff roll off his back, forgives others easily, loves his country and her people, and looks as though nothing bothers him. But he is a human being with feelings, and, when I told him he was doing a great job months before the election, he reached out, grabbed my hand and squeezed it, thanking me for my simple words. They meant something to a rich man running for President of the United States, they meant something to a man who was and is mercilessly attacked every moment of every day.

    God, please bless our President, his family and his staff. Please lead and guide him in all he does, and, by Your bountiful goodness, protect Donald Trump as he fulfills the role you set him on as leader of this country. In Jesus name we pray.

    President Donald Trump
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20500

    Dems getting a taste of thier own medicine.
    Daily mail reporting story from Stephanie Grisham
    that the Obama people left mean notes behind when
    they left that said things like “you will fail” “your not going to make it”
    Three former Trump officials confirmed the story.

    Susan Rice called it a ‘bald face lie”

    They would find the notes in cabinets in office cabinets filled with
    Obama authored books.

    • “Actually, gentlemen, the Founders of our Country foresaw exactly what you are facing now … and intended their Constitution to be proof against it.” Let me explain.

      No matter how they eventually arrive at it, the locus of the present Democratic gambit will consist of what is called a Bill of Attainder. (This is the thing that they then intend to use to “find” the Constitutionally-required “high crimes and misdemeanors,” utterly ignoring the underlying reasons why the Constitution requires this.)

      A “Bill of Attainder,” first of all, is specifically prohibited:

      “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed.” (§1.9.3)

      Now … what is a “Bill of Attainder?” There are three bright-line tests:

      The Legislature, claiming Judicial powers, finds the subject “guilty,” then …
      • … punishes the subject (by removal from office) …
      • … without benefit of trial. (Or, in this case, any rights at all.)

      The single most critical backbone of our Constitution is the separation of powers among the three Branches. Our Founders perfectly well knew (from history) that, if the Legislature had Judicial powers, “Bills of Attainder” would be the inevitable and oft-repeated result … just as we now see here. This entire action is therefore a direct frontal assault upon this Constitutional principle.

      To me, it is therefore inevitable that this will finally result in: Trump v. US House of Representatives. The Supreme Court case that future historians will write about endlessly. The most important case that the Court ever considered in its entire history.

    So they have charged two Epstein prison guards with falsifying records. They also say they have video of the cell, showing nobody else coming into the cell. So it would seem they have a cut and dry case. They would have video of the guards checking the cell, or not checking the cell. But prosecutors offer them a “plea deal”. Why do that? It would seem pretty easy to prove falsifying records if you have the video.

    Prison guards pleading Not Guilty. Their lawyer says they are being “scapegoated”.

    It seems like thats exactly whats going on here.

    Prosecutors say “Look, just plead guilty to this and we will go easy on you.” But it doesnt sound like they have a case.

      If we back off now, it would be destroyed regardless.

      At least by standing up to their decades of intimidation we have a better opportunity to get back to our grass roots.

      Last night, someone on FreeRepublic made a point about Trump Derangement Syndrome which I’ve been turning over and over in my mind. That is, that TDS is a sort of demonic possession. I know, it seems crazy. Except that I know so many otherwise intelligent people who have a completely irrational hatred for our President that permeates every single area of their lives and when you ask them for specifics, they draw a blank. It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. I mean I detested Obama and Clinton but I dealt with it by focusing on my family and other, more positive things. I barely gave them a thought. Additionally, if you’d asked me why I despised those two presidents, I’d have had a laundry list of policy decisions for you (and in Clinton’s case, personal corruption which left him open to blackmail). But these TDS sufferers can offer only the most vague generalities, e.g. “he’s a racist!”, “He’s abusing his power!”, etc.

    Massive protests happening in Iran. It’s become vicious with Iran’s “security forces” killing hundreds of protesters. Many banks and regime facilities have been set ablaze by protesters. Internet shut down to prevent this info from getting out. Now armed groups are shooting at each other. Not clear where this is going, or when it will end.

    Mark levin just had a 17 year SCIF expert call in and who listed all the violations in chain of command Vindman committed. He explained Vindman a chain of command was the White House.

    He needs to be prosecuted. This sleaze needs to stop!

      with so many promises being fulfilled why focus on “news” reports v. accomplishments of the Trump Admin? What is your point? To ridicule the “news” orgs? Is that the point of your post?

      I have not seen those phrases used much less overused by Sundance. Why are you posting that here?

        Get off your high horse, Katherine. When did i EVER say Sundance is a culprit in this? And you are right that PDJT has LOTS of accomplishments. Unfortunately, the fantasy plan of coming justice is all that gets OUR side talking on OUR media.

        If you think tick-tocking and waiting for declassifications and releases are going to win next year, you are sadly mistaken.

        In my opinion.
