      Always amazes me the extent a politician such as Pelosi will put themselves ahead of the best interests for masses of millions.

        To people like Pelosi, it’s a game played with other people’s lives. No matter to them as long as they gain and maintain power and wealth. No love of country or compassion, only greed.

        The “best interests” of their side include the chaotic breakdown of the inner cities, civil strife, etc. — for them, those are features not bugs, because they make the country weak and ready tp be plucked by the “transformative” ideology that they favor.

        Exactly. Pelosi and her cohorts are gollums. They are addicted to power and money. How many they sent to war and died? Then bill us with billions and trillions of dollars.

          The deal. USMCA will collapse.

          President Trumps still wins, though. He’ll withdraw from NAFTA and we’ll go back to pre-NAFTA rules, which favor the U.S. bigly.

          Mexico wants USMCA because it’s Win-Win for them. Pre-NAFTA is just a Win for the U.S. only. The multinational corporations lose either way.

    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/12/07/december-7th-2019-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1052/comment-page-1/#comment-7633372)

    – – – – – –
    Saturday update – 12/7/19
    – Older Fisher Industries video from 2017 showing various projects they have worked on. Gives a sense of their capability.
    – Tweet with TennesseeStar article.
    – Brian Kolfage tweet with same Official statement posted on WBTW’s instagram account yesterday.
    – Tweet about fake news article from TheHill.
    – Tweet with Guardian article.
    – WBTW Instagram post with call in phone #.
    – Retweet of CBP twitter report.

    ***Praise: 🧱🧱🧱 Fisher Sand & Gravel has been awarded “mammoth” border wall contract (receiving 268M of this 400M project) to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona. Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020. (12/2/19) (2 days of posts here & here.)
    ***Praise: Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House. (12/4/19) (RSVP Confirmation from WH & 2 photos.)

    Prayer for the work crews.
    Pray:
    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction for the work crews, security personnel, legal team, CBP, DHS, Army and all involved in Project’s 2, 3, and other projects
    – that work would go smoothly with quality construction; with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)
    – that any Temporary Restraining Orders that may have been put in place this week to halt construction would be resolved/dropped and work will continue so that the 3.5 mile project would be completed by WBTW’s January 15 goal (Date may be pushed further as video was made a few days before Fisher Industries was ordered not to build wall.).

    – that Project 2’s wall demonstration will provide the evidence necessary to overcome any objections and show that WBTW/Fisher Industries can rapidly complete large sections of wall, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that this demonstration of the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain would provide undeniable proof that the design is sound and they are able to safely and effectively build it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley

    – that the Government would purchase all projects that WBTW builds so the funds can be rolled into new &/or larger projects in the future and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.
    (This, in addition to ongoing fundraising, will allow WBTW/Fisher to continue to self fund projects, build their reputation/resume, while they continue to pursue other avenues which could lead to government contracts down the road.)

    NYC: Hizballah sleeper agent gets 40 years for jihad terror activity, New York Times sheds bitter tears

    Jobs Report Takeaway: It’s Morning in America
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/12/07/jobs_report_takeaway_its_morning_in_america_141911.html#2

    Excerpt:

    In addition, those wage gains now flow overwhelmingly to workers previously left behind. For example, blue-collar wage growth exceeded white-collar wage growth; non-college grads outperformed those with degrees; and black incomes surpassed those of whites. The point here is not to engage in the divisiveness of liberal identity politics. All Americans presently enjoy robust wage growth. But it is also important to highlight the tangible benefits to groups that most needed a leg up on the economic ladder.

    Beginning with Comey giving HRC “a pass” on “the matter”, why is our government only concerned with Thought Crimes versus facts? And by Thought Crimes I mean what “The Government” thinks you were thinking. It is bizarre and makes no sense to me, yet no one is fighting it.

      “It is bizarre and makes no sense to me, yet no one is fighting it.”

      It’s not historically bizarre at all, and it will make perfect sense to you when seen in the context of the Left and their history. Our side could have easily, and should have, seen this coming years ago. “Thought crimes” are necessary to the totalitarian reality, and must play a part in the construction of that reality during the transition from a period of due process and presumptions of objective reality into their parallel dimension of power, control and oppression. You are right — we are not fighting it for what it is, and because of who these people are. And that may be our undoing. The Left has made moral clarity and courage very perilous undertakings.

      The House Judiciary Committee released a report Saturday in which it argued that a president may be impeached for “illegitimate motives” even if his actions are “legally permissible.”

      The report states: “The question is not whether the President’s conduct could have resulted from permissible motives. It is whether the President’s real reasons, the ones in his mind at the time, were legitimate.”

    Harry Reid – delusional with and without chemo.

    FTA – Harry Reid may be the only person who can keep the Democrats from killing one another before selecting a nominee. But will he live long enough to do it?

    Moreover, opposition to Trump will unite Democrats, he predicted, and heal the rifts among them. “We know that to say four more years of Trump will not be good for the country is a gross, gross understatement.”

    “What happens if he wins is a nightmare I don’t want to get into,” he added later. America’s standing in the world is in danger, he said, as is the basic functioning of our government, not to mention the future of the climate.

    https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/473545-trump-gop-shifts-focus-from-alleged-surveillance-abuse-to-durham-russia-probe

    My reply:

    “Jordain Carney leaves off a number of damning facts.

    1. Horowitz has allegedly already made 2 criminal referrals, including former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith. Ha! Lead attorney.
    2. Spin already out: senior lawyer Clinesmith allegedly altered evidence, but Swamp spinners are labeling him a “low level” employee.
    3. Durham is now officially conducting a criminal investigation, and has a Grand Jury seated.
    4. Democrat Horowitz already pulled previous punches; for example, claiming nutbag partisan Peter Strzok had no bias!
    5. A recent court submission by attorney Sidney Powell reveals new text messages showing top FBI & DOJ officials altered General Mike Flynn evidence!
    6. Who gave Ms. Powell those text messages? Horowitz or AG Barr?
    7. How could Horowitz write a report w/o interviewing Carter Page?!
    8. We know the FBI / DOJ withheld exculpatory CP evidence, incl. the Steele bias; and the State Dept & UK noting his unreliability!
    9. The FBI / DOJ withheld that the DNC, HRC, and FBI funded the Steele dirty dossier!
    10. Horowitz has a limited time frame & scope; Durham’s timeframe & scope have expanded, incl. the allegedly corrupt ONA.
    11. Horowitz is friends with disgraced James Comey.”
