    • I have been thinking that we should add Stephanie Grisham to our treeper prayer list, she has been smeared so viciously lately, and remains stalwart, forthright and loyal, though I think at heart she is an introvert. Anyway, it struck me that she could use our prayers, and might appreciate knowing our communal concern for her and the vile behavior/language to which she has been subjected.

      Thank you again, Grandma! I hope President Trump is aware of your daily prayer posts. He says he’s aware of many prayers for him, and always appreciates it when he meets someone in the public who says they are praying daily for him.

      Huge praise for the wonderful 2 hour rebuttal to the impeachment crap. Many are saying, including leftwing media, that the President’s lawyers did a masterful job, and in CNN’s words, “The Republicans are winning.”

    Friday night update – 1/24/20 – (See link above.)

    – Brian Kolfage tweets about ACOE wall and private property owners in Texas.
    – 2 articles about Arizona bill HB 2084.
    – Video of Arizona House Federal Relations Committee hearing on HB 2084. – (57:40)

    – – – – – –
    Saturday night update – 1/25/20

    – Very informative TheMonitor article covering a wide range of issues on Project 2. The tour was given on Wednesday, Jan 15, at which time Tommy Fisher said the wall could be completed in 2 weeks (end of month), if weather holds. Contains additional detains about construction, ongoing legal case, objective regarding turning the Project over to the federal government, and many other topics.
    All 3 legal parties will probably be meeting in court again on Wednesday(Feb 5).
    – The Monitor photo gallery from Project 2. (12 photos)

    – – – – – –
    ***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: Although the Temporary Restraining Order(s) were in place, Fisher Industries and crews were still able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing to Dec 12th (off for the holidays), 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 for another week, he lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher was able to continue to shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge 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. Looks like at least 1.5 miles have been completed as of ~ Wednesday (Jan 22). (Original estimate for completion was 8 to 10 days, depending on weather.)(Looks like Fisher will take longer than 10 days.)

    ***Praise: (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 42M and 50M(mentioned by Kolfage); perhaps it’s because Fisher plans to sell Project 2 back to the government for $14M per mile ~ $49M for 3.5mi.; and assuming the distance is shorter ~ $42M for 3mi.)
    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE’s 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.
    ***Praise: (Reported on 1/22-23/20)… WBTW gained a major construction equipment company as a corporate sponsor & are looking for more. (See prayer below for specifics.)
    ***Praise: (Jan 22)… Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill,HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona, moved out of the Federal Relations committee with 4-3 vote in favor. The bill will now go to the House Rules Committee(on Jan 27) before a full floor vote.

    🙏 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.
    – for Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. as all 3 parties are expected to meet in court again on Wednesday(Feb 5) regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking at solar LED security lighting next. They are looking for a manufacture or even a supplier who wants to be involved and help with lighting.

    – 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.
    (Jan 22)… Bill passed out of Federal Relations committee with 4-3 vote in favor. The bill will now go to the House Rules Committee (on Jan 27) before a full floor vote.
    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; and 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 Industries as they work 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/Fisher Industries to build 250 miles on Private Property in Texas

    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries 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 🌟

      A very informative article. (TheMonitor article.)
      This article might explain some of the politics around why Jeff Rainforth(WBTW cameraman) isn’t at Project 2 for the time being.

      Challenges remain for private border barrier – 1/19/20
      https://www.themonitor.com/2020/01/19/challenges-remain-private-border-barrier/

      Excerpts (Emphasis added. Worth reading the whole article above.):
      – Here and there, verdant sprouts of Bermuda and Johnson grasses dotted the bare soil where it had been seeded to replace the cane.
      – The installation continued westward, with several Caterpillar excavators holding 40-foot sections of wall aloft on steel frames as workers poured the concrete base. The heavy machinery remains in place for approximately an hour and 45 minutes as the concrete sets, Fisher said. After that, the frame can be removed, freeing the excavator to position another section as the concrete continues to cure.
      – Each 40-foot section contains 36 free-standing bollards set in a 4-foot wide pad of concrete that is sloped slightly to allow water runoff toward the river. The zinc-galvanized steel will allow the wall to stand for more than a century, Fisher said.
      – Each bollard will also be filled with pea gravel and topped with a small, four-sided concrete pyramid that is at once meant to repel climbers, and to evoke images of the Washington Monument.
      – Once all the bollards are installed, crews will then construct a concrete service road, for a total of approximately 24 feet of paved surface. “That’s what we like to call our whole system — a no rust, no dust solution to border security,” Fisher said.
      – The project also includes lighting, surveillance cameras, fiber optic vibration sensors, and “anti-tunneling down to 30-some feet,” Fisher said.
      – If the weather holds, Fisher estimates he can have all the bollards in the ground within two weeks.

      – Fisher was hesitant to say how much the TRO-induced month-long work stoppage impacted overall costs, but he did say the 3-mile project would come in at approximately $42 million, or approximately $14 million per mile — well under what the government pays for its wall projects, he said.
      – As to where that money is coming from, the CEO said much of it is coming from him. “Through my years of work,” he said with a wry chuckle. “Profits from Fisher (Industries), borrowing from the bank, you know, no different,” he said.
      – He estimated approximately half the funding is coming from “cash flow” and half from financing.
      – Financial questions also remain regarding the land itself. Fisher testified in court that his company had entered into a lease/purchase agreement with Neuhaus & Sons, but has declined to speak about the purchase price. Private property sales are not subject to public disclosure in Texas.
      – Fisher did, however, reveal new details about the land agreement Wednesday. The deal will be finalized after construction, he said. “What we do at the very end, we’re gonna take a string line off these (light) poles, 15 feet, draw the line, and that’s gonna be my line,” Fisher said, describing the property line that will be delineated from the riverbank landward.
      – “I’m gonna be his (Lance Neuhaus’) neighbor — or, hopefully, the federal government will be,” Fisher said.

      – And with that, Fisher also revealed his ultimate goal for the project — that it be taken over by U.S. border enforcement agencies. It’s something he hinted at several times throughout the tour. “Once everything’s done, we’ve invited them to come down and see it,” Fisher said. “Then, hopefully, they like what they see and we can talk about not only moving this project to them, but several more.”
      – Nor did he rule out the possibility of reaching a lease agreement with the government. “It just depends on what DHS wants to do in the long run — if they wanted to take an option where we maintain everything,” he said.
      – Meeting government specifications aside, Fisher may soon encounter new obstacles to his plan: federal lawmakers. Two local congressmen addressed the issue during visits to the Valley this week.
      – Rep. Vicente Gonzalez said he would be interested in forming a roundtable of experts to explore the legalities of the government taking over privately built wall.
      – But Rep. Henry Cuellar took it one step further… “The same way we added language to protect the butterfly center… add language there to say that the federal government shall not acquire from a private individual, private company, a fence on the border,” he added a few moments later in English.

      – Meanwhile, neither the government’s, nor the NBC’s lawsuits have been resolved.
      – In the wake of Crane’s twin rulings, Fisher’s attorney, Mark Courtois, has filed to have the lawsuits dismissed. For the government, the Assistant U.S. Attorneys continue their work on the case, and have submitted requests for transcripts from the two days of evidentiary testimony.
      – Peña has also filed a motion to have the butterfly center’s suit remanded to state district court to continue litigating the property rights issues.

      – Throughout the process, Tommy Fisher has insisted his project is safe. “We’ve replanted a single row of silver trees that never shed a leaf, never shed a log,” Fisher said.
      – Too, his company continues to work with the IBWC on the predictive modeling, saying his own engineers have successfully run the updated data. “We’ve checked it with three different computers and we know it works,” Fisher said.
      -A spokesperson for the IBWC declined to comment on the status of the agency’s attempts to run the data, citing the pending litigation and deferred questions to the Department of Justice. A message left with the DOJ went unreturned as of press time Saturday.
      All three sides are expected to meet again in court on Feb. 5.

      Good Morning Stillwater:. It looks like February 5th is the critical construction date for Fisher to meet. The veritcal wall part needs to be completed by then.

      The February 5th date was likely used by Fisher to set the pace of construction.

      I would think we should be at or pass the 2 mile mark by now.

      Likely the follow-up stuff like roadway, lighting, planting grasses can be done afterwards if court allows. Just guessing these activities are more likely to be allowed since it is the wall they really wanted to stop and lost.

      Once the wall is up, it can do 99% of it’s job.

      Too bad, the bad guys can just go around each end of the wall. Just guessing for some reason this stretch of the river was more convenient than elsewhere on the river.

      Bet border patrol will love this wall being there!

        Hi WES, I believe they’ve already done the seeding of grass and the planting of trees for the first 1.5 mile stretch back in December, even before they started the wall. You can see some of the grass starting to grow already. Not sure if they seeded all the way up to the wall as worker would be tramping through there while the wall is being built.

        On Jan 9, Judge Crane removed section 8b from the TRO allowing Fisher to be able to continue to shave, grade, or cut the riverbank. So they could finish preparing the riverbank and base on the remaining mileage in preparation for the wall. (Btw, I’m starting to think it might be closer to 3 miles that 3.5 miles.) I expect they did the planting as well then but not sure how long it takes how it might interfere with wall construction if the plantings take longer. Though you could be right about them saving some of the planting until after the wall is up as the wall is the priority. The plantings prevent erosion so likely to be allowed either way like you were thinking.

        I also think most of the trench for the lighting was completed ahead of time as I don’t think the TRO didn’t prohibit this. I’m not sure how many of the poles were set up though.

        Yea, Border Patrol will love it !

I also thought perhaps she had plans before or following her show, hence why she was more “done up” than normal. I noticed she had on long sleeves which is unusual under the lights, that’s why I thought she might have another event.

        I doubt she had surgery, she doesn’t need it, at most some kind of injections? She’s beautiful and does NOT look her age, just one of those women blessed with good genes.

        On Rudy… he either wont listen to those asking questions, or he couldnt hear… and there was a delay. All those things together made that interview unwatchable and defeated the purpose Rudy wanted. Janine wanted the info, but Rudy is pushing his podcast and wants to be in control of the information coming out. Im not sure that is a good idea if he wants this information on the Bidens to be out there full blown.

      I don’t think the dinner with Parnas was at the WH, my understanding is it was at a Trump property. I’ve heard his DC hotel and I’ve heard one of his Florida properties.

      I agree it is concerning that this shyster was able to record the President. That being said, what he recorded in my opinion isn’t damning. If anything it’s damning toward Pompeo that it took a year to get rid of a sabotaging, left wing hack, political activist ambassador. She should have been gone pronto, as soon as her antics were known and verified.

      It was in Florida. I think it was Robt. Barnes who pointed out such recording was a violation of Florida state statute (Chapter 934). The statute requires prior consent from all parties to the conversation. Violation is a felony. An exception is if it is a meeting open to the public, i.e. government meeting, and the recording is not disruptive to the proceedings.

      Was this dinner open to the public or a ‘government meeting’? Was Lev Parnas acting as an officer of an agency? (Such officer acting in discharging his official duties would be exempt.)

          FYI: I think it quite amazing that you have a world of information literally at your fingertips but decide to forego that to run with your frustration. Arising from the aforementioned comment by Barnes, I was curious so I – gasp! – looked up the pertinent information.

          BTW: why are you even frustrated? Do you not have something germane to what I wrote about the FL statute and the actions of Parnas?

          P.S. I’m over 60 yrs of age. So I’m not some millennial saying, ‘Get with the program, pops.’ The reason I put the acronym you object to is it occurred to me I was beginning to sound like I had special knowledge.

          P.P.S.: I reckon you were never near the military.

          Anyway, this comment is meant to be lighthearted. It’s a wonderful day.

People say he’s not interested in details, he doesn’t need details. He has a fundamental understanding of most things, yet is still open to new information if it makes sense, and he can get to that point of understanding in a fraction of a second. Impressive dude.

        Right now, they are working their plan for impeachment, milking the taxpayer funded opportunity for negative press, no morals, no judgement.

        The first date (when the impeachment trial is over) is not clear yet — not set in stone. But if the dems have failed to remove him, they will escalate to other plans they have in the making.

        When the door is closed for new candidates to throw their hat in the ring for POTUS, it will be clearer what the odds are for beating POTUS. Unless they have an ace to run for Dems, they will escalate. If no other republicans run with a chance of winning, ,they will double down their focus on eliminating HIM, not just their agenda.

    Following the news on the Chinese flu epidemic has left me feeling morbid. So much of the frivolity and unseriousness of the western world post-WW II flows from the miracle of antibiotics, and antibiotics aren’t working against this flu virus.

    Throughout most of world and American history, death was a mundane and omnipresent thing.
    Calvin Coolidge’s son got a blister playing tennis on the White House court. It got infected, and killed him. Working people didn’t play recreational sports under that reality. The amateur qualification for the Olympics was code for sons of the rich.

    Teddy Roosevelt’s mother, and his wife (in childbirth) died on the same day. Teddy went a little crazy and entered his cowboy period. Infant mortality and women’s mortality in chilldbirth were much higher then: no talk of abortion in such a world.

    Mark Twain outlived his younger wife (10 years) and 3 of his 4 children. Lonely people would routinely have picnics in the cemetery to spend time with their loved ones; that’s why they resemble parks, although the fashion seems nearly gone.

    Speaking of changing fashions, death was a more common topic of popular songs (along with God and country) than love. Try finding 19th century love songs: they’re scarce. Barbara Allen and Beautiful Dreamer are songs to dead girls.

    Another frivolity that will end soon is the dream that Americans in their seventies can campaign and then serve as United States President, over a grueling period of several years. Bernie’s already had a heart attack, Biden faces looming dementia, yet these are the Democrat frontrunners. The incessant impeachment campaign against President Trump seems aimed to damage him physically and emotionally.

    We can’t risk a backlash against older candidates, where a pinhead like AOC gets nominated because of her vitality.

        Also thieves oil. Again during the pandemic grave robbers avoided contracting the flu by dousing kerchiefs in what became known as thieves oil, they would slip them over their face when they robbed graves of flu victims.

        Lastly AHCC is a mushroom extract that boosts your immune system and helps it fight not only flu, but studies have confirmed it aids in fighting certain cancers.

            It AIDS in fighting cancer in combination with other therapies, it’s particularly good at helping with metastasized cancers. It is a Japanese mushroom, they’ve used for years, it boosts your T-cells. As for studies try Harvard and MD Anderson, those are the most prominent US studies.

            Once again, it HELPS, it AIDS, it COMPLIMENTS other therapies. It is not some miracle cure for cancer, if I came across that way I apologize. It does in fact boost your T-cells.

            It also is clinically proven to kill most strains of HPV, in fact the vast majority of studies are related to HPV. Once again it is not magic. To kill HPV it must be taken at high doses for months and should be under a doctor’s supervision. I would say there is nominal evidence it kills other viruses, mostly Asian studies.

            It is in fact a studied compound with well documented evidence, my Mayo clinic doctor is familiar with AHCC. It is expensive however and to my knowledge there are only 3 certified US suppliers.

            Elderberry extracts were studied in the 1900’s, specifically because of the flu. Once again there are studies out there even from the US government, also Europe and Israel. It was recommended for my own child during cold and flu season during her 2.5 years of chemo for leukemia. Yep, that’s right my own child battled cancer and no I didn’t try to treat her naturally nor did I give her anything outside of what her doctors prescribed. Echinacea, btw also boosts your immune system, but should not be taken by leukemia patients.

            Thieves oil is more in the wives tale category. It is a blend of essential oils, typically cinnamon, cloves, eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary. Taken individually each has various astringent properties. Rosemary also has anti-viral and anti-fungal properties as do thyme, oregano and tea tree oil.

            I’m not really into essential oils, but I am familiar with thieves oil and the story behind it. You don’t ingest the oils, you diffuse them in the air is my understanding. So I presume if nothing else you’ll end up with a fragrant house or car.

            We are a traditionally center right Nation, its where the Constitutional Republic form of govt. ‘naturally’ takes us.

            So, no way we should have gone as far left as we have gone,…IF we had a conservative party accurately reflecting our policy choices.

            The Republican party became the fake “conservative alternative” PARTY, just like faux news is the fake conservative alternative network.
            And for the same reason: to occupy that space, in order to prevent a REAL conservative party or network from forming.

            And being taken over by globalists, masquerading as conservatives, undermining us.

            Hence, Uniparty; ONE party, two-faces. The Conmunists/globalist/marxists at the top of the Dem party, operated in stealth mode, for many years in order to recruit “useful idiot” moderates to their side, but are now ‘out of the closet’.

            The Republicon face is still in stealth mode, undermining us behind closed doors, while espousing our views in front of cameras and while campaigning.

    Is it true that Lev broke the Florida laws by recording conversations without the other persons permission. If so why is he not being prosecuted for that?

    I have a feeling that Rudy has been set up and that the two people he has relied on are part a Ukrainian setup in league with Pelosi and gang. Nancy Pelosi’s daughter says there are more tapes to follow. Remember, the first tape released was recorded in 2018.

    The Pelosi Mafia is going to try and muddy up the President’s impeachment defense. We can safely assume that if the President is acquitted there will be another impeachment right behind it.

        “When State Department officials saw the [information], they attempted to ring alarm bells and strategized to correct the record.” The article then describes the efforts of George Kent to label the allegations as “Complete poppycock”.
        “State Department can confirm that these materials were provided by the Department to the Inspector General [Steve Linick] on May 3, 2019 for his review and for such action as the Inspector General deemed appropriate”.
        There doesn’t appear there was ever any action by Linick and he then sat on the Giuliani documents until he packaged them up with “20 pages of communications between State Department employees working to push back against the [allegations] that Giuliani was pushing” and gave that to Dems in October 2019. This whitewashing by the same players at State implicated by the allegations is where Dems and the media get their ‘totally debunked conspiracy theories’ lines.

    As Zelensky stormed to a landslide victory in the April election, Parnas and Fruman flew to Israel to meet Ihor Kolomoisky, a Ukrainian oligarch who is alleged to have stolen $5.5 billion from the country’s largest private bank. Earlier that month, the Daily Beast reported that Kolomoisky, who is a key Zelensky backer, was under FBI investigation for financial crimes.

    Fruman and Parnas were introduced to the oligarch by Alexander Levin, another pro-Trump Ukrainian-American businessman, on the pretence that they wanted to talk about their plan to sell gas to Ukraine, Kolomoisky said in an interview.

    However, once inside the meeting, the two men told Kolomoisky that they wanted his help getting in touch with Zelensky, in order to help set up a meeting between Giuliani and the president-elect.

    Offended, Kolomoisky said, he then stormed out of the meeting.

    “I told them I am not going to be a middleman in anybody’s meetings with Zelensky,” Kolomoisky said. “Not for them, not for anybody else. They tried to say something like, ‘Hey, we are serious people here. Giuliani. Trump.’ They started throwing names at me.”

    In response to inquiries, Levin said of Parnas and Fruman: “I met these gentlemen for the first time in March of 2019. I have no information about what they have done in the past, or what they have done since they met with me. I plan no involvement with them in the future.”

    The best site for following the ‘China Coronavirus’ is Caixin, and they have lifted their paywall. The Daily Mail UK is also posting accurate information.

    Why? Because the PRC again, has lied and covered up the incidence since early December.

    They are quarantining millions of people, stopping all transportation links, rail, bus, private cars, planes from major cities.

    The best the rest of the world may do is find, test, identify folks flying in from China. That must be extended to flights from other reporting countries last count ten , and increasing.

          It’s only the true poll – the one at the ballot box – that wakes them up for just a moment every 2 or 4 years in the fall. And then, if the results don’t correspond with what they’ve been propagandizing to us, we are just rubes that don’t understand what is good for us.

    Due to an inconvenient but necessary personal commitment, I didn’t have the time or access I would have preferred to listen to the entirety of the Democrats presentation this week but could only tune in when I found myself with a bit of time on my hands. Not being able to listen to all of it was actually a blessing but I’m trying to listen to as much as I can (as SD says, don’t look away) so as to be armed to refute and inform the willful ignorance of some open but intellectually lazy and left-leaning acquaintances. During one of the times I was able to listen, something caught my ear when CA Representative Zoe Loftgen was speaking wherein she denigrated “crowdsourcing conspiracy theories” when I believe she was discussing Ukraine. The statement was made either during Wednesday’s or Thursday’s presentation in the afternoon. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific. I suspect the statement was made to get ahead of likely upcoming revelations of inconvenient truths to the democrats narrative but does anyone else who listened to this testimony recall the context (I think it was in reference to Ukraine) in which Rep Loftgen made it? If someone has pointed this out previously, I apologize in advance.

      I do know who my Precinct Captian is. It’s me. Trump won our state primary, but our state establishment gop fought us all through the campaign.

      The only way to ensure Trump got our state’s votes for the nomination was to start at the precinct level. You find out when it is and GO. You elect the person who supports your candidate to go to the county, then state convention. The winner at state will be the delegates to the National Convention to vote for your candidate’s nomination to run on the gop ticket for President.

      It is possible for a candidate to win a state’s popular vote in a primary, yet lose the state’s delegates to another candidate. This won’t be a problem in this year’s nomination.

      The gop, a private organization, can decide who you are allowed to vote for because people don’t realize how the process works. They don’t want you to know. Go to a precinct election. It’s the same place you vote. Call your state gop to find out when it will be. It’s not publicized much as they don’t want you there. People announce they are running to represent the precinct and who they support. It’s simple and shouldn’t take long.

    FTA “A previously unnoticed passage in Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on federal surveillance abuse suggests Bruce Ohr and his compatriots were willing to bargain with a Russian oligarch to take down Donald Trump.
    Two-hundred-plus pages into the IG report, while discussing former Associate Deputy Attorney General Ohr’s continued contacts with Crossfire Hurricane dossier author Christopher Steele, Horowitz revealed a significant detail that to date has been overlooked: “On December 7, 2016, Ohr conveyed an interagency meeting (including representatives from the FBI) regarding strategy in dealing with Russian Oligarch 1.”
    The IG report added that after the meeting “one of Ohr’s junior Department colleagues who attended the meeting” asked “Ohr about why the U.S. government would support trying to work with Russian Oligarch 1”—the moniker used in the IG report to refer to one of Vladimir Putin’s closest confidants, the aluminum oligarch Oleg Deripaska……..Adding this chronology to the facts the IG report reveals about Ohr’s December 7, 2016, interagency meeting raises serious questions concerning whether Ohr and his compatriots discussed Ohr leveraging his position as the director of OCDETF to push for a deal for Deripaska, with the end goal of getting Manafort and, in turn, so they thought, Trump.
    While it is too late for Horowitz to consider these questions, the same cannot be said for U.S. Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham.”

    After all that we’ve learned in recent days, it seems to me that our entire Intelligence community, all those tens of thousands of taxpayer funded government drones with their cushy jobs, have done nothing since 2015 except go after our President Trump.

    There were tyrants and terrorists who were the sworn enemies of our Country that they ignored because of their blood lust to take down Donald J. Trump. What does it say about these Satanic degenerates that they considered our duly elected President more of a threat than any Russian, Iranian or other dictator?

    Now we are unraveling the twisted mess and it is clear to me that they felt they needed only the flimsiest excuses to do their dirty work. They were/are so self righteous and had so much power that they believed they would never get caught let alone punished. Sadly, they may be right about that.

    The evil and destruction that these scum of the earth have wrought is worthy of Satan himself and I have no doubt that that is where their true allegiance lies. Only a man like our President who I believe was sent here through Divine intervention, has been able to get this far in the battle. A lesser man would have perished by now or given up the fight.

    Make no mistake about it. The Demonics will never give up as long as they breathe. They are all literally insane and consumed with hatred for US and our President. It is therefore imperative that when our side has the chance to take out ANY of them, from the lowest FBI or Govt. employee, to the highest director, Congressmen or women or agency head, it must be done and done ASAP.

    We simply cannot allow this evil to prevail and infect our Republic any more than it has. Enough is enough. NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW. Right?
