      Thank you for praying for President Trump’s well-being! He is a STRONG man, but this is unprecedented abuse! The left wants him gone, but they want us gone too! Witness the utter hatred of the FakeMedia, Antifa, the “Bernie Bros” as exposed by Veritas.

      You mentioned his number of supporters as “63 plus million.” Yes, I think we all see that his supporters have massively swelled in numbers since the 2016 election. And some of his original supporters, who started out as “anyone but Hillary” voters, now are “I’ll walk through glass to vote for Trump” voters.

      Victor Davis Hanson has written a must read column about how our Constitution has been shredded, how foul this whole process has been with SpyGate, RussiaGate, FakeMedia. He summarizes the entire corrupted process in his own inimitable style.

      Psalm 27 New King James Version (NKJV)
      An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
      A Psalm of David.

      “The Lord is my light and my salvation;
      Whom shall I fear?
      The Lord is the strength of my life;
      Of whom shall I be afraid?
      2 When the wicked came against me
      To eat[a] up my flesh,
      My enemies and foes,
      They stumbled and fell.
      3 Though an army may encamp against me,
      My heart shall not fear;
      Though war may rise against me,
      In this I will be confident.
      4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
      That will I seek:
      That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
      All the days of my life,
      To behold the [b]beauty of the Lord,
      And to inquire in His temple.
      5 For in the time of trouble
      He shall hide me in His pavilion;
      In the secret place of His tabernacle
      He shall hide me;
      He shall set me high upon a rock.
      6 And now my head shall be [c]lifted up above my enemies all around me;
      Therefore I will offer sacrifices of [d]joy in His tabernacle;
      I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
      7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!
      Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
      8 When You said, “Seek My face,”
      My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
      9 Do not hide Your face from me;
      Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
      You have been my help;
      Do not leave me nor forsake me,
      O God of my salvation.
      10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
      Then the Lord will take care of me.
      11 Teach me Your way, O Lord,
      And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
      12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
      For false witnesses have risen against me,
      And such as breathe out violence.
      13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
      That I would see the goodness of the Lord
      In the land of the living.
      14 Wait[e] on the Lord;
      Be of good courage,
      And He shall strengthen your heart;
      Wait, I say, on the Lord!

      Thank you Grandma and Stillwater for you daily prayers – and thanks to all the treepers who pray with us and/or post their own prayers.
      Q – why do we pray? I learned long ago that thoughts are things, and prayers are surely the very best of our thoughts.
      With that in mind, and with the fearful days ahead, I beg you to be mindful of negative thoughts. I hate folks who post ‘so and so… should (or should not)’, so I don’t mean to do that.
      Re: the impeachment trial – we all knew this was coming. While I appreciate ‘facts’ about what is brewing, I cringe when reading negative (and fearful) thoughts. None of us has that magic crystal ball on the future, but I personally believe God is steering the ship. Exposing the swamp and cleaning it up was never going to be easy.
      As others have asked, if not VSGPDJT, then who?
      All in favor of more winning say ‘aye’

    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/01/16/january-16th-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1092/comment-page-1/#comment-7751677)

    – – – – – –
    Thursday night update – 1/16/20

    – Misc. content. (No time to make a complete summary today.)

    – – – – – –
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    (Fisher receives $268M of this $400M project)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.) (2 days of posts here & here.)
    ***Praise: (12/4/19)… Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House.

    ***Praise: Fisher Industries and crews were able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing (while still working within the limits set by the Temporary Restraining Order) up through Dec 12th, after which they agreed to stop until Jan 4th, the day after the amended TRO expired.
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Although Judge Crane extended the TRO another week to Jan 9, he lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher may now continue to shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge Randy Crane lifted/removed the TROs from both the Federal government’s lawsuit (on behalf of the IBWC) and the North American Butterfly Association’s lawsuit (on behalf of Marianna Trevino-Wright’s National Butterfly Center) against Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.
    ***Praise: 🧱 Fisher was able to begin installing bollards on Sunday (Jan 12) and work is progressing well. Approx. 1,500ft. completed as of Tuesday (Jan 14) evening. (To be completed 8 to 10 days later, depending on weather.)

    ***Praise: (Reported on 12/11/19)… Although WBTW doesn’t have $50 million for Project 2, as a result of the success on Project 1, investors have united to come together to secure that stretch of the border on Project 2.
    (Update)… Fisher is taking the lead on Project 2 and is covering most of the money for the wall costing ~$42 million. (Haven’t heard any more about other investors with the exception of WBTW as a minor investor. Not sure what the discrepancy is between 40M and 50M; perhaps it’s because Fisher plans to sell Project 2 back to the government for $14M per mile ~ $49M for 3.5mi.)
    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***Praise:🇺🇸 (12/22/19)… Brian Kolfage was awarded Patriot of the Year award by Turning Point USA at their Student Action Summit for his work with WBTW in helping to securing our border.

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name:
    – for safety and good weather for the work crews as they work on Project 2; that they would be able to continue uninterrupted (w/ no new TROs) until completion (~ 8 to 10 days later).

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned.
    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill,HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – 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, 4, and other projects; and for WBTW/Fisher’s working with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; 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 Project 2’s wall will prove that WBTW/Fisher Industries can rapidly complete large sections of wall, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that this wall would prove that the design is sound and they are able to safely and effectively build it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley (Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain)
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW to build 250 miles on Private Property in Texas

    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW’s projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.
    (This, in addition to ongoing fundraising from public/investors, will allow WBTW/Fisher Industries 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.)

    🌟 “The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you must be that you must keep pushing ahead. Because it’s the outsiders who change the world and will make a real and lasting difference. Nothing worth doing ever came easy. Treat the word impossible as nothing more than motivation.” ~ President Donald J. Trump 🌟

    • Pity this can’t be taken to a one-off national referendum. Then we would truly see what the people think. Accepting the findings of proven haters and colluders against the defendant is preposterous. With such a major decision, USA is backwards in this regard.

      The impeachment is a carefully orchestrated, multi-year plot to embarrass the President, and perhaps remove him with enough rouge votes, prior to the 2020 election, and McConnell is “on-the-record” stating he will “play it straight” and allow the trial to occur.

      All outward indications are that McConnell and his RINO cabal are not interested in quickly dismissing this unconstitutional travesty, as it is now officially underway with the known to be compromised Roberts presiding.

      We’ll see if McConnell compounds his subterfuge by acquiescing to the Dems regarding their witness demands, using the guise of “fairness” to the prosecution.

      “Trust the Plan” is increasingly appearing to be a slogan that is appropriate for the DS.

          This video is a bit rambling, but the guy is spot on. I could have skipped the first 10 minutes.

          2A has been a threatened “red line” for many, and if people in VA don’t care enough or are so intimidated that they won’t stand up peacefully and say “NO”, then I doubt anyone will stand up should they remove PT.

          I am hopeful that the President’s attorneys will make fools of Schiff and company and that Mitch isn’t really given a chance to shiv the American people. I am hopeful that Ralph Northam is put in his place.

          Count me among the growing list of people that do NOT trust Mitch and the rest of the cabal to “do the right thing”. They will be watching VA with great interest. If Virginians don’t show up (unarmed I hope) then the senate has their green light. This is a trial balloon. We shall see.

          I saw a comment the other day that said “I self censor here to keep out of jail”. There is a perfect example of someone that has fallen into the second trap and can’t be counted on.

          Reagan fired the air traffic controllers that illegally went on strike. If only massive numbers of federal workers would decide to strike, that would be like pushing the easy button. Maybe we could troll sites they frequent and try to incite them to strike 😂

          Otherwise the next best recourse would what is called a RIF or reduction in force. There are rules in place for how that is handled and unfortunately seniority counts heavily.

          The President is Constitutionally required to enforce the laws enacted by Congress.
          EVERY law passed by Congress then requires someone to administer or enforce it, and President has no alternative but to enforce.

          Point is, CONGRESS created the administrative state. They set its budgets, it pay scale, and they hold oversite authority over it.

          So, WHO do the civil service employees in the Federal Gov. actually WORK for,…the POTUS, or CONGRESS?

          I don’t know about you, but before I retired, I took orders/directions from the person they detirmined my pay, and could call me on the carpet for screw ups, and could fire me.

                I think a good indicator of the President’s situation will be whether or not Mitch supports the Dems’ witness demands. If Mitch acquiesces to them and agrees, I think the President will be in serious trouble.

                I don’t have a firm feeling what the outcome will be. I am not optimistic because Mitch and his leadership cabal had no interest in quickly and summarily dismissing the unconstitutional charade asap.

                IMO, the President’s incessant tweets about his innocence and the travesty of the trial indicates he, too, is concerned about the outcome.

    Here are my impeachment trial predictions:
    1) Turtle does not have the vote to dismiss.
    2) 4 GOP senators will vote with dens to force witness.
    3) Dems will call few witnesses including pernas. Trump will exert privilege and block others (Mcghan and Mick). Dems might have other dummies as witnesses.
    4) cant predict about Rudy
    5) GOP might force whistle blower to testify..
    6) Finally trump will NOT be removed. i think GOP traitors fear the base and cant afford trump removal although some may very well want it to happen.

They will not for the President’s witnesses, or at least not any “controversial” ones like the Biden’s or the WB. When it comes to the WB Grassley may join in to vote against him being called to testify.

      In the end Romney is the one I think is most likely to vote with the D’s to convict. He’ll fake being pained by his decision and spout some crap about moral leadership, but his main motivation will be jealousy.

      I actually think in the end, Collins and Murkowski will not vote to convict. They’ll only vote to convict if some “bombshell” arises that they think gives them cover. Collins can’t afford to alienate Trump supporters, neither can Murkowski. By the same token, Doug Jones nor Joe Manchin can afford to alienate so many of their constituents.

      The wild cards to me are the 4 republican senators retiring, nobody talks about them. Lots of possibilities to offer up lucrative deals and they have no fear of reprisal because they aren’t running for office again.

      FTA “So did Obama national security director James Clapper, who played a key role in both creating the Russian collusion hoax and perpetuating it over the next two years as a CNN contributor. According to a declassified congressional report, “Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.”…..As The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway reported, Clapper’s leak seems to have been done in coordination with Comey as a setup to give the false dossier legitimacy. Regardless, Washington Post factcheckers went to bat for Clapper, purporting to prove that he wasn’t really lying when he lied to Congress. The outcome is not only the end of credibility for Clapper but also for the Washington Post.”

    Excerpt:

    Ms Shelton, confirmed by the Senate in 2018 as US director for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, has close ties to other Trump political appointees, such as Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, and David Malpass, the president of the World Bank. She was an adviser to the Trump campaign in 2016.

    She has questioned the basic role of the Fed, telling the Financial Times last year: “How can a dozen, slightly less than a dozen, people meeting eight times a year, decide what the cost of capital should be versus some kind of organically, market supply determined rate? The Fed is not omniscient. They don’t know what the right rate should be. How could anyone?”

    Ms Shelton has advocated pegging the dollar to the gold standard.

          Matt’s claim that P Trump was not mentioned in the resolution is ludicrous because everyone but Matt realized that the toothless exercise in the House was intended to condemn the sitting PDJT.

I still hope this unfortunate schism will heal but I don’t know if the disappointed will ever trust him again.

The comedy team of Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff offer a palace coup to undo the hopes and free choice of the American people and lead to economic collapse and a Third World justice system where there is no due process, no right to confront your accuser, or to call witnesses in your defense, and an Alice-In Wonderland world where hearsay and presumption trumps, no pun intended, actual facts, actual crimes and real evidence..

      That’s the calculus of the moment. But politics is dynamic. Here’s my view of the strategy of the coup plotters (democrats, GOPe, media). The impeachment trial is the legitimized platform for a “critical mass” dumping of new conspiracy-theory material added to existing charges and driven to peaks of hysteria by the media. There is nothing subtle about it. The goal is to “flood the zone” with new allegations — supported by massive media propaganda — sufficient to create a political hothouse frenzy to “finally” be rid of Trump.

      This is the moment, the opportunity, the political/legal means to get rid of Trump, and the Deep Staters (DNC, media, GOPe, et al) are NOT going to squander it.

    FTA – Sen. Rand Paul is waging a fierce campaign to prevent the Senate from hearing witnesses in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, vowing to force tough votes on his fellow Republicans if they break with the president or back Democrats’ demands for new evidence.
    Paul says if four or more of his GOP colleagues join with Democrats to entertain new witness testimony, he will make the Senate vote on subpoenaing the president’s preferred witnesses, including Hunter Biden and the whistleblower who revealed the Ukraine scandal — polarizing picks who moderate Republicans aren’t eager to call. So he has a simple message for his party: end the trial before witnesses are called.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has warned Republicans not to divide the party and endanger his slim GOP majority, but Paul’s play could be useful to him. If the pressure campaign stifles the small group of Republicans open to hearing from witnesses like former national security adviser John Bolton, McConnell will be able to conclude the trial in the swift fashion he’s long sought.

    But if a majority of the Senate agrees to hear witnesses, Paul is ready to go all out to make sure everyone in the Senate is on the record about whether they stand with Trump.

          “Since the fifteenth century, dominant nations have developed strong states to gain a superior position in a world system of capitalism. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, national sovereignty had been eroded amid the rapid flow of goods, investments, and knowledge that spanned the globe. In their book Empire (2000), Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri argued that capitalism still requires state power; not in the form of a colonizing nation but rather in the form of international elites and institutions backed by the military power of the United States.”

        The issue with the ideology of some utopian ‘brotherhood’ of every able bodied person working towards the benefit of everyone else is it ignores the human nature of the mob where so many want something for nothing. There is no ‘universal drive where people want to do good for each other’….it is not universal throughout the population. 60% or more of the kids in Detroit are starving and have no food at home even though the family is getting food assistance. People will not even care for their own let alone their neighbor.

        We don’t need to try the ‘experiment’ again where the outcome is that reality trumps dreams each and every time!

        The structure of the original ‘Star Trek’ where there is no money, everyone works, everyone gets along, and everyone takes care of each other without regard to physical form, species, or biology is unsustainable. They don’t even have bathrooms on the starships because they cannot figure out how to make them usable for all! Okay, that was sarcasm right there….
