    Concerning our Deep-State corrupted judiciary, allow me to quote a saying by Publilius Syrus, a Romanized Syrian who lived in the First Century B.C.:

    Iudex damnatur, ubi nocens absolvitur.

    “The judge is condemned, when the guilty man is acquitted.”

    The opposite is assumed to be true: “…when the innocent man is convicted.”

    If President Trump is removed by RINOS bribed by Leftist money (Soros, etc.), we all stand condemned unjustly.

        How would that allow them to hide from us? What would they gain by being open? Is this even being brought up for a vote? Or just “discussed”? This is all very simple for me: Convict my duly elected president for nothing..you convict your self. ALL get convicted, not just those who voted a certain way. I see through their scheme..ALL democrats/republicans get the same. Keep it simple, don’t get lost in the minutiae…..they are all in on it. Their goal now is to incrementally dilute our belief in his total innocence. this is the beginning of it. They have a series of maneuvers in place to try to stop us from physically revolting. don’t fall for it..stay true. They will wilt in 3 days when their water is cutoff and they can’t get their laundry from the cleaners. THIS is our opportunity, our chance to really take this thing back for his kingdom.

      This post reminds me of the conversation I had at the local VFW watching the KC Chiefs play the Houston Texans. Down 24-0 at the end of the first quarter, ALL the Chiefs fans were whining, sniveling and crying in their beer with this same “woe is me” attitude. I told them all that this will be our finest hour Ye of little faith! The Chief’s have them just where we want ‘em. Never give counsel to your fears. Point is, Donald Trump vs. the deep state is early in the game. He has five more years. This impeachment coup, like the Mueller coup attempt and Stormy, and Access Hollywood, and a dozen other so called “bombshells” are going no where. It is our nation’s finest hour and President Trump is a great leader, the man for the job. Like the KC game 51 points….Donald Trump will run the tables and win the Nov 2020 election, complete the wall, replace two or three more SCOTUS nominees, continue the economic miracle we call the USA.

        I understand the positive thinking and the pep talk, but get real – it is not early in the game. Election Day is 10 months away. The President has been impeached. Not a single coup member has been prosecuted. It’s now or never.

        I’m going to say here, the Access Hollywood attack (which is what it was) should be considered Deep State.
        Think of who it was, doing this.
        Too far in advance, to be a planned operation?
        Think of the name of the show, and the name of the man they hired for it.

        Remember someone saying here, to assume they have dirt on everyone?
        By “Hollywood”, these days they mean not only those in the entertainment industry, but “journalists”, politicians, and celebrities, which Donald Trump certainly was.
        BTW, that tape was made in 2005, which was well after 9/11, and Donald Trump was saying things in public that he was perhaps not supposed to be mentioning.

        Amen – do the research on wind power. Seems “green” but the environmental cost to build, maintain and eventually remove/replace them EXCEEDS the value of power they will ever generate. Monster 150 ft+ blades that have to be replaced in 15-20 years due to stress of operation as well as the gear boxes that wear out. Blades are made out of petroleum based fiberglass and can’t be economically recycled.

        A school district in Iowa found that instead of it being a money maker, their $1M investment 10 years ago is now worn out and not worth repairing. It will cost $200K to remove.

          IMO there would be no wind power without the huge government subsidies supporting the installations. It is not low cost and never will be. The public could agree to have electricity only when the wind blows and wind power would still not be economically viable.

          This fact is true of most green energy programs if you look at the true upfront and long term costs. I go to my local hardware store and buy a “green” light fixture with LED bulbs, you can not replace a burned out bulb, you have to replace the entire fixture. Despite claims, they do not last longer and In addition you have to pay as much as two or three times the cost of a normal fixture. In the end you have done nothing to “save the planet” rather you made it worse.

Were the water doesn’t have to be there on any specific timetable and can then be gravity fed. There are places were wind power makes sense, but it isn’t a winning place to produce power for the masses.

        True tale.

        Primarily, I am in the Oil & Gas Production business. Late 1990’s we positioned ourselves to be heavy in natural gas. We were purchased in the early 2000’s. Not wanting to jump right back in, during a boom when costs were high, we looked at other things to do with the cash we were sitting on. A wind farm was one possibility.

        Long story short, The only way you can make “money” with a wind farm is due to government subsidy. When the subsidy is gone, the party is over. Might be different now, but somehow I doubt it.

        Concerning wind power, I have read of (but not seen personally) the studies that show a net energy loss after mining raw materials, manufacturing, setup & installation, then maintenance and repairs on the wind mills.

        Personally I love alternative energy where it is competitive and makes sense. Not where it has been propped up by government for virtue signalling.

I was in Vietnam on my third tour when it was announced that America was withdrawing troops and turning the fighting over to the Vietnamese even though the communists had not been defeated. It was at that point I knew we who were fighting had been deceived by our government and used for political gain rather than for what is right.

          In Viet Nam pilots were briefed the mission for the days sortie. These orders and mission details came from the pentagon. The Viet Cong also had intercepted the orders and set their SAM missiles accordingly.

          The pilots in order to survive would deviate from the Pentagon briefing orders and fly at a different altitude and tactics in order to attempt to avoid the Viet Cong SAM setting the Viet Cong got from the Pentagon briefing orders.

          I remember one squadron starting with 24-aircraft and in short order being down to 4-aircraft before it was realized the Viet Cong were intercepting Pentagon briefing orders.

    • Yes, it looks like the Dept. of Just Us is using this terrorism case – which they solved without needing Apple phone digital keys – as a pretext for attacking this company policy. Zerohedge notes, “Apple and other Silicon Valley tech companies have routinely been ordered by the FBI to provide digital keys to unlock encrypted data of customers, and this has been met with fierce resistance from those companies.”

      Why is it so important to the FIB, the Dept. of Just Us, et al to destroy one of the few remaining bastions of privacy in the digital age? If the goal is to protect the public, as Barr suggests, how about not letting Muslim terrorists into the U.S. in the first place? How about actually investigating the biggest mass shooting in U.S. history – Las Vegas – instead of covering it up? How about not utilizing all of those Deep State resources on a coup against the duly elected President of the United States?

      Bill Barr . . . why don’t you take real ACTION to deal with the widespread corruption in your own house before trying to create new avenues for abuse and corruption? Enough with the Big Talk already. You’re starting to sound like Miss Lindsey . . .

          Why did no one at DOJ speak to either U1 Whistleblowers?

          What happened to the 47 Hard drives that Montgomery gave the FIB?

          Allows the President to be branded an impeached President when thousands of documents could have and should have been declassified to show the American people everything they have done and accused PT of was a fraud?

          Why has no DOJ investigation begun when you have clear hard evidence from Rudy’s docucuments, Ukraine officials comments, the Biden video and millions in missing money?

          And now we get 180 degree stories from Barr vs Apple, why?

          How many more examples where there is or has been real hard evidence of crimes IMO and yet this DOJ seems to ignore it all and does not provide any transparency to the people.

              Fair enough and I agree with your last sentence.

              One other point, IMO Barr has to see all of this abuse and corruption.

              He clearly sees the findings from Collyer and Adm. Rodgers on all the FISA spying abuse.

              He has to know IMO about the Hammer Program and the 47 Hard Drives.

              He has to know that amongst the 33K HRC emails via the unsecured server there were to and from emails by Obama himself.

              He has to know what was on the Wiener Laptop

              But yet have we ever heard him come out criticizing the FISA process, demanding that a full audit is conducted from 2012 – 2016 to better understand the depth of the spying abuse that Collyer and Rodgers brought forward from just their 6 month audit?

              Has he ever spoken about the FBI contractor abuse via non stop NSA database searches where these contractors allegedly had unfettered access??

              Has he ever questioned why the FIB would have 3,100,000 searches conducted in just one year, 2017?

              Finally, don’t you think a person who knows that the American people have lost faith in the FBI and DOJ and who speaks continually of integrity and justice, that this person would be actively trying to restore that lost faith by bringing transparency via real actions against all of this illegal and corrupt spying done on Americans???

              IMO in the end the world MUST judge AG Barr on his actions to actively end this abuse and corruption by our government.

              So I agree with your last sentence, so far…………..

                  I guess I err on the side of caution, though I have never been a pessimist.
                  I think the reason I post that way is because of all the trust the plan mess.
                  It is so much easier to say “PT has this” than “we need to go to Washington”.
                  We remove any responsible action on our part by trusting some plan to transpire.
                  If by some tiny chance PT is actually removed from office, it will be too late.

                  I hang on to your confident belief that will not happen, but I do not trust turtle or gop. They have the UN and big global money to step in and shut us all down.

                  I guarantee President Trump will never give in, he is fighting for his and his family’s life. PT will never be able to walk away and go back to just being a business man. No way.

                  I do wish you would say what you think Durham will do. A guess, not a prediction. 😉

                  Not sure they need to worry about re-election if they succeed removing PT.
                  Voter fraud, machine hacking, and illegals flooding the country and voting in some states. I actually think the vote is covered (or they just retire handsomely)for those who help the cause. IMO, that is why nothing was done in 2018 as we watched districts outright stolen over days of vote harvesting. Now it is acceptable to harvest votes, and ok for illegals to register while getting a drivers lic (to run us over. Lol)

                  I don’t even calculate the 2020 vote in the equation. If I did, I would see it exactly the same.
                  If we lose PT, we lose it all.
                  Again, you have consistent judgment and I consider all your posts, like a few others on here.

                Yet when the FBI was handed information that would have prevented the Parkland shooting, handed it on a silver platter, they chose to pretend they never got it.
                Of course, the entirety of the MSM let that miserable excuse lie too.

                I have said this since the Uniparty passed that infernal Patriot Act. If they are too short-handed to keep an eye on the people they know they should be watching, how is allowing them to spy on every man, woman, and child in America going to make it any better?
                There is an interview with John Miller, right after the Boston Marathon bombings, where the interviewer (Katie Couric, I think) asks him why the FBI didn’t keep an eye on the Tsarnaev brothers, after being warned about them. He didn’t see that one coming, and didn’t even have an answer ready!

        If every one of us emailed AG Barr whenever he slips and lets us know he is not (or does not know how [snark]) preserving our Constitutional Government, email him with the details we see, he might get a clue that we are on to him and his (globalist) Bush beginnings.

        Maybe this is what we’ve got; maybe not. I am suspending judgment. However, I only trust while I verify. At present I have my suspicions – thanks for coverage, Sundance.

        At the very least if there is a shred of a patriot in him, we, patriot citizens, can hold his feet to the fire – every time. Perhaps he simply has forgotten how to be a patriot in law enforcement.

        Perhaps he believes that our Constitutional government should know everything about every citizen all the time — spying, or more “kindly” data gathering. Wow, then law enforcement hardly needs to work. They just sit and sift through data. And how much data can be manufactured?

        If AG Bill Barr is biding his time for the big kill, I will gladly praise him. At the same time, he should not be afraid to hear from Americans in the meantime.

        The permanent stance for citizens of a Constitutional Republic is never, never, never trust “government.” We must be scared enough to return to dealing with Reality, I think. Always verify, and if necessary thrown the bums out. Oh, yes, we must have honest voting for that to happen (snark).

    • The Second Amendment says that “national security” begins and ends at home. The Fourth Amendment … which we now utterly ignore at our own peril … says the same thing.

      Donald Trump has ripped the covers off the fact that Governments will be corrupted by those who pursue power, and that there is no limit to the degree to which they will abuse their powers in pursuit of it. For instance, does it really make sense to conduct tens of thousands of searches each and every day of a Government database which can tell you the receipt number when a friend of a friend of a friend of your enemy orders a chicken sandwich for lunch? No, but they do it every day because they can. Because the Fourth Amendment is not standing in their way anymore.

      We have therefore decimated our own national security and subjected hundreds of millions of people to dangers of which they are not allowed to be aware. George Orwell only got it wrong by twenty years, but even he lacked imagination.

        https://www.conservapedia.com/John_Carter_Vincent

        John Carter Vincent worked for the U.S. State Department as a China hand during World War II and the Chinese Civil War.

        Vincent was one of Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s numbered cases given to the Tydings Committee. During his tenure as chief of the Division of Chinese Affairs, Vincent played an important role in hastening Mao Zedong’s conquest of China. The McCarran Committee concluded that “over a period of years, John Carter Vincent was the principal fulcrum of IPR pressures and influence in the State Department.” Louis F. Budenz testified in the summer of 1951 that Vincent was a member of the Communist Party. In December 1952, the Civil Service Loyalty Review Board found reasonable doubt regarding Vincent’s loyalty. In 1953, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles requested Vincent’s resignation. Vincent is McCarthy’s Case #2 and Lee list #52.[1]

        Owen Lattimore

        https://www.conservapedia.com/Owen_Lattimore

        Owen Lattimore was U.S. political adviser to Chiang Kai-shek in 1941; after Pearl Harbor he became Deputy Director of the United States Office of War Information for Pacific Operations.[1] According a unanimous report of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee (SISS), he was also “from some time beginning in the 1930’s, a conscious articulate instrument of the Soviet conspiracy.”[2] He was Director of Research for the American Council of the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR), identified by SISS as “a vehicle used by Communists to orientate American Far Eastern policy toward Communist objectives,”[3] and editor of its flagship publication, Pacific Affairs. He managed to become Director of the Walter Hines Page School of International Relations at Johns Hopkins University (where he styled himself “Dr.” Lattimore), though he had never earned even a bachelor’s degree.

        In the years between 1928 and 1945 Owen Lattimore wrote eight books about Asia and China. In his first book, Desert Road to Turkestan (1928), Lattimore wrote, “I should be inclined to say that a very strong case can be made out for the Soviet position.”[4] In a later book, Manchuria, Cradle of Conflict (1935), Lattimore writes, “Russia appears to be the only nation of the modern world that is ‘young’ enough to have ‘men of destiny.’ It creates its Lenin and its Stalin. . . . Russia, more than China and more than any nation of the West, is launched upon a career of growth”[5] Lattimore characterized China, which was to become the victim of this communist “growth,” by such adjectives as “aggressive,” and “expansionist.” Lattimore depicted China as an aggressor in Manchuria, writing that the Soviet Union, China and Japan all had ambitions in Manchuria, but that the Soviet Union had more right there than China or Japan. In 1940, Lattimore characterized Soviet policy in Mongolia as “in the interests of the Mongol people as a whole.”

    Horowitz’s team reviewed Paarmann’s communications from 2012 through 2017, which showed “extensive contacts” with members of the media, especially in 2016 and early 2017, laying out interactions with at least six reporters. These contacts included hundreds of texts, calls, and emails; over a dozen rounds of golf, including one where the reporter paid for both and another where Paarmann did; private drinks and dinners, including instances where investigators couldn’t determine who paid; a media member’s housewarming party where Paarmann brought wine as a gift; and a $225-ticket dinner, which was free of charge thanks to a member of the media, in violation of FBI rules.

    Paarmann and Wilber exchanged 55 calls and emails and met for dinner or drinks four times. The watchdog report pointed to a 2016 article citing a “U.S. law enforcement official,” a “counterterrorism official,” and a “law enforcement official,” which, by matching the phrases, is an article by Wilber about Orlando Pulse nightclub mass shooter Omar Mateen. The report cited another 2016 piece that quoted “a federal law enforcement official who was not authorized to speak publicly about the case,” a phrase that appears in a co-authored piece by Wilber and two others on Dallas cop killer Micah Johnson.

    Paarmann acknowledged making many improper disclosures when confronted during an interview with the DOJ’s watchdog, telling investigators in one instance: “I may have dorked that one up.”

    But, when texts pointed to lengthy phone calls with reporters regarding investigations but didn’t explicitly show what the conversations were about, he denied leaking. Horowitz’s team didn’t believe Paarmann, saying his demonstrated willingness to divulge sensitive information to these reporters, his knowledge of the cases they were writing about, and his failure to report his media contacts to the FBI made it “more likely than not that Paarmann violated FBI policy by providing law enforcement sensitive information to these reporters.”

      The only thing that these “experts” actually understand is War, but even they do not understand War as it applies to this region of the world. It never occurred to any of them to use economics as a more-powerful weapon. It never occurred to them that these are and always have been a tribal people, who for centuries have lived and prospered and built some of the world’s finest civilizations in the most inhospitable places on Earth. They were repeatedly taken advantage of, in their so-called “expertise,” by other men who were cunning. People who boldly sought, and obtained, appeasement from all of Europe, and who matter-of-factly expected also to get it from America. (And, for many misguided years, did.)

      And so we have very old men sitting in hardwood halls, listening to the experts. Not to the first President to prove them totally wrong. To the first President who was and is an expert negotiator.

I see here a place where both perspectives can be and are intelligently discussed by people who know what propaganda looks like when they see it. And, I definitely believe that “propaganda cuts both ways.” We see propaganda that is “hard left” and that is “hard right.” But, here we find people who see through it, who speak their minds, and who actually have something to say. The group is generally polite and self-policing, adhering to the guidelines that Sundance periodically repeats. Here we find real(!) “Freedom of the Press.” Which is exactly what this nation needs to navigate through the diabolical attacks on our system of governance that are right now taking place.

Our Founders clearly understood the pure-political implications of Impeachment, because they came from a country where “maladministration” was, and still is, a valid cause. They wrote very extensively about this particular subject, and with very good reasons that we are now seeing being played-out here.

      If the Senate does accept a trial, then Lawfare, Inc. will kick into high gear to pass one Bill of Attainder after another after another. Mitch is aware of this and has already commented about it. To these evil lawyers, “the law is a weapon of war,” and it means anything you want it to as long as it lets you get your way.

      Like it or not, Lawfare has put our country into a position where brand-new precedents will be set by the Senate. These should include that the Senate, like any court, does have the power to reject charges that are defective … Unconstitutional … and that it may so declare.

    $232Million dollar Nancy is losing her grip on the loony bin aka the democrat party and her own fleeting sanity. I for one am loving it. The swamp is doing what they’ve always done, protecting their fiefdoms. But it requires the consent of the governed and that’s slipping away with their overt hysteria, “he won’t be president one way or another in 10 months” or “there are not 51 votes to dismiss the impeachment articles.” and on and on it goes.

    The President has a massive Ace-in-the-hole, his Deplorable Army. Their crap will only work if we allow it. Maybe the President calls for a 10million man march or maybe one happens spontaneously. If the swamp believes that we Deplorables, I’d guess 100million strong and growing, are going to sit back and allow them to remove our president based on specious made up charges, they’ve got another thing coming. That will mark the point that it is time to have it out. They are beginning to fear us and that’s a good thing, because they should. They work for us! …or at least they’re supposed to.

    Their biggest fear is, they know that the ballot box will not work in 2020, at least not the way they want it to work. Because “We the People” are pissed and have been for some time. We will stick with our Great President Trump, and we will crush them.

    20 Republican Senators would have to turn on Trump to impeach.

    “Mitch used to have 18 Decepticons in his caucus. However, he’s now down to 14. He lost Cochran, Corker, Hatch, Flake and McCain, but picked up Romney…. Now McConnell manages 14 GOPe (owned by Tom Donohue, Globalist Chamber Of Commerce) Senators. Those 14 *would* vote to impeach w/ right political winds.”

    “McConnell will never allow a vote, any vote, even an anti-impeachment vote, that exposes his Decepticon caucus. Never happens. EVER Protecting his crew is paramount!”

    It would take 51 votes in the Senate to dismiss the articles of impeachment. Simple Majority.

    It would take 67 votes (75%) in the Senate to impeach. 45 Dem + 2 Ind + 20 Rep.

    Currently there are 53 Republican Senators and 47 Democrats, including 2 Independents who caucus with Democrats.

    In order for the Senate to convict Trump and remove him from office, two-thirds of the Senate would have to vote in favor of removal which means 20 Republican Senators would have to turn on Trump, a highly unlikely scenario.

    20 Republican Mitch does not have. The 14 won’t vote to impeach, on Mitch McConnell’s insistence, as they don’t get the 2/3 of the senate. They loose and expose their Globalist Anti-Trump Agenda.

    Obama Passed the Buck. Trump Refused to Play.

    “The most infamous payoff was the $1.7 billion in cash the administration shipped off to the IRGC on wooden pallets in exchange for U.S. citizens held hostage by the regime. The White House said that there was no “quid pro quo,” that it was Iran’s money to begin with—$400 million the pre-revolutionary government had deposited in 1979 to buy U.S. arms, plus interest. But the U.S. had already used the $400 million to compensate terror victims of the Islamic Republic. That was Iran’s money. The $400 million the Obama administration used to “pay back” the Iranians belonged to the U.S. taxpayer.”

    “If this all seems unbelievable, it’s because it is—and also because you’re probably still imagining that Obama’s goal was to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. But once you understand the real purpose, these moves become much clearer. To wit: Why did Obama give the regime enough uranium to make 10 nuclear bombs? To pressure the incoming Trump administration to stick with the nuclear deal. If Trump chose to leave the JCPOA, he’d have to deal with the fact that with 130 tons of uranium already on hand Iran had an easier path to the bomb. In effect, the last president handed the Iranians a loaded gun to be pointed at his successor.”

    How many patriotic Americans are going to tolerate President Trump’s much vaunted USMCA once it begins being implemented by the powers of the UN globalist, once our patriots see what the USMCA really does. It will:

    Take our sovereignty,
    Override our Constitution,
    Circumvent our Congress,
    Take jurisdiction over our Courts
    Override our Property Rights with the UN’s Sustainable Development/Agenda 2030
    Establish a Single Energy Grid for Canada, Mexico and the US run by the UN
    Establish a Supranational Bureaucracy for all three countries
    Establish Open Immigration among the 3 countries
    Climate Change regulations & taxes will be implemented
    “Gender Identity” and “gender-related issues” (aka LGBTQ) will be promoted
    Control our Customs Duties
    Effectively make us a member state of the globalists run North American Union

        At its height, the Gulag network included hundreds of labor camps that held anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 people each. Conditions at the Gulag were brutal: Prisoners could be required to work up to 14 hours a day, often in extreme weather. Many died of starvation, disease or exhaustion—others were simply executed. The atrocities of the Gulag system have had a long-lasting impact that still permeates Russian society today.

      These aren’t just Bernie people. These are the new Democrats: the AOC / Ilan Omar/ GreenNewDeal / young socialist wing of the Democrat party. For every glowing story about AOC as the “future of the Democratic party,” well, here it is.

      They are the end product of a culture and an education system that has been subverted by anti-American, anti-Western, leftist propaganda; the steady destruction of morality, and social conditioning to accept an all powerful state as the answer to every problem. They have been taught to hate America, hate the West, hate their gender, hate their skin color, hate Christianty, and love the state.

      They are Democrat voters. And whichever Democrat wins the nomination desperately need their votes in 2020.

    How will the Democommunist mayor of Milwaukee respond if other Democommunists start burning down his city.? Including a brand new arena that has a big investment from the Milwaukee Bucks owners (most well known Jamie Dinan) who are big Dem donors. Otjjer D mayors have let Antifa types run wild and we all know D’s are against rule or law and law enforcement.

    Should be interesting living within the Dparty conflicts.

    Fox News is told a House vote on sending the two articles of impeachment to the Senate is expected Wednesday, at which point more details will emerge on Democrats’ plans.

    Well, how about that… Calculating and sneaky all in the same breath.

    First, when the House voted on the Articles, that was the vote to send them to the Senate. Period. EofS.

    The Speaker has deliberately sat of them. Now there is to be a vote, ya right. Six, ten months from now, when everyone is still arguing about the Impeachment. There will be people in the MSM being feed their marching orders and citing this vote as a bipartisan vote because there will be many Republican Representives to vote to send the Articles to the Senate.

    • They don’t have to vote again to send them over; the Republicans are so dumb. They broadcast how they don’t have the votes for dismissal, so now she won’t send them over. When will the dimwits get the picture…

      So maybe the House republicans should vote “present” so there are only dem yes or no votes. Or maybe refuse to vote on the basis House process was unconstitutional with no due process.
