I am so proud of these kids and also the store for hiring them! They were both very mature and very nice.

        Bannon has the goods on these people. He is ex CIA (I think) and Military Intelligence which means he has friends in place that could rock the boat if they go after him and they know it. Having said that, Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff might just be stupid enough to try it.

        Bannon is correct about Bloomberg. He is the Chinese and World Bankers candidate. He is their savior in their eyes. According to Laura Ingraham, he has extensive ties to China and they are in a hard place with trade right now.

        I don’t think it will be Bloomberg’s money alone, I think he may team up with Soros to enhance his ground game or there will be a battle between the two of them for control of the party. Bloomberg hinting that he will bring Clinton on board as VP is setting up Clinton to enter the race. It will be his way to take away that possibility of a potential battle between himself and Soros.

        Clinton is a Soros candidate to establish communism, she always has been. Very sad that Bloomberg would even countenance this. His safety will most definitely be compromised.

        It’s all hands on deck for deplorables and independents. And I mean starting now.

    Joe diGenova interview. A few items.

    – he believes some people will be indicted; no assurances anyone will go to jail.
    – he reminds us that allegedly, Durham has a Grand Jury seated. (George P. slso said he appeared before a GJ.)
    – White House personnel is a disaster.
    – McMaster was s disaster; no McMaster, no impeachment.

    If you will forgive me repeating myself. Sundance has told us that your institutions of government are too rotten to remove. To root out the corruption would leave nothing standing.
    As a visiting commentator from my own shores, I reply:
    Rot is not eliminated by neglect or blindness.
    Rot must be thoroughly and completely cut out. All that is gangrenous must be thrown into the trash bin of history and set ablaze.
    The thin tender shoots of green will rise again if the system itself is not infected.
    Systemic disinfection began upon PDJT’s appointment.
    He is fearless and is just the right man to tell the country about this rot and why the CIA, the FBI and parts of the DOJ are functionally unable to perform their duties.
    This will take patience from the people and they will give it.
    They have tried this blustering, hyperbolic man and found him to be true.
    They believe he is on their side, and what’s more, he is.
    This is the man.
    This is the moment.
    May God (continue to) Bless America.

    Saturday night update – 2/15/20

    – Misc. content.

    – – – – –
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… WBTW/Fisher Industries was able to build a half mile wall up the side of a mountain in 11 days (with zero safety incidents), cutting off 19 major drug cartel trails, and closing off one of the worst areas along the border… (Began building over Memorial Day weekend in Sunland Park, NM., just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, TX.)
    ***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: While 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 (after which they were off for the holidays).
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Judge Crane 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 the wall itself is nearly completed as of Sunday (Jan 26). (They’ll probably start building the concrete service road next. Not sure what stage of completion the lighting and cameras are at.)

    ***Praise: Fisher has taken the lead on Project 2, covering most of the money for the wall($22M bank loan; total cost is ~$42M). (Haven’t heard any more about other investors with the exception of WBTW as a minor investor. Fisher plans to sell Project 2 back to the government for $14M per mile, or $16.5 million with 10 years of complete upkeep included.)
    ***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.
    (Jan 30)… The bill failed on the house floor.
    (Feb 6)… The bill passed house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    🙏 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 WBTW / Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (Feb 5)… Judge Randy Crane granted a 60-day extension to all parties. The three sides will reconvene on April 8.
    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. (They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking for a solar LED security lighting manufacturer or supplier next who wants to be involved.)

    – 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.
    (Jan 30)… The bill failed on the house floor as one Republican sided with the Democrats.
    (Feb 6)… The bill passed AZ house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    – 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 of wall 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 🌟

    Going back, the first time I really noticed President Trump getting traction and media attention, was when he commented on the tragic murder of the young lady on San Francisco’s pier 14. President Trump spoke up and said aloud what most Americans thought, that here was a crime that should have never happened. A killer who should have never walked our streets. The murder had a galvanizing effect, and sympathetic Americans seemed to tune into the Trump message.
    The irony of the case is that the killer, Jose Zarete, was about to be turned over to ICE ERO (having completed his Federal sentence), and deported.

    Prior to the transfer, prison officials noted the outstanding warrant from San Francisco for a 20 year old marijuana charge, and dutifully notified the SF Sheriffs office. I can tell you to a certainty that prison officials were greatly surprised when San Francisco said they wanted him. It would require two officers on an 800 mile round trip from San Francisco to pick him up, only to face zero chance of prosecution. It just does not happen. The crime would have to be very serious, and even then a city might only extradite no further than an adjacent state, for example. Nevada is an exception. Don’t ever write a bad check to a Nevada casino. And pay your markers. Trust me on this.
    So why Zarete?
    Photo op, that’s why.
    Sheriff Mirkarimi’s political prospects were going dim.
    He was a disaster as a member of the SF Board of Supervisors, and he was worse as Sheriff. Nobody liked him. He beat his wife up, and plead out to false imprisonment. The city was trying to
    oust him. One thing after another. But then he got the
    idea if bringing Zarete to San Francisco. He could publicly give the finger to ICE, which he hated, and show the progressives that he was saving an illegal alien from deportation! He could count on accolades in the SF Chronicle!
    Zarete had a few problems. A long arrest record, five deportations, involvement with heroin. But that could be airbrushed. The big problem they found out was…he was as crazy as a bed bug. And repulsive looking. Not looking good for a photo op, nor looking good to release a mentally unbalanced criminal onto the streets.
    The judge as expected dismissed the marijuana charge, but what to do with Zarete? Well, they just kept him in jail while they thought about it. The same Sheriff always crying about the rights of illegals, was holding one, well, illegally.
    After about 10 days, which I am sure included plenty of interesting meetings, they finally turned Zarete loose to join the thousands of other crazy street people. With tragic results.
    So, one may reasonably say that the Sheriff helped elect President Trump.

      Okay, I watched almost all of this race, and I am very curious about this.

      This car started dead last so I thought maybe it’s a backup car and I let it go.
      But then, and especially at the end of the race…

      Every shot from Fox that could’ve showed this car always cut before you could see it. EVERY shot. Sure, you could catch blurry bits of it when the camera zoomed out. But every time they panned through the field and would’ve shown this car they immediately changed camera angels so you could see this car.

      And then at the end of the race, this car fell out of the line and deliberately lost ground to the leaders. A couple big accidents at the end of the race put this car in 12th position. He then literally pulled out of the line on the restart and fell back to 20th or so. And then another accident on the final lap would have advanced his position more but he fell back yet again. Seriously.

      Am I crazy? Did anyone else see this or know anything about this?

      I know they did stuff like this to have real shots for the Days of Thunder movie but that was fiction. There’s no rule against this type of behavior but there’s no way that a pro driver would tank a race for money. I just don’t get it.

      Go to 11:13 in this NBC highlight video.

      Troublemaker– from your “journal on line” piece.

      Meanwhile, a mishap far from Florida caused a second Trump 2020 entry, a Chevy Silverado in Friday night’s NextEra Energy 250, to drop out, said Port Orange driver Tim Viens.

      A disappointed Viens said Friday afternoon as his car was traveling from Chicago, its hauler slid off the road somewhere in Tennessee. The car was unable to make it to Daytona Beach by 8 a.m. Thursday morning, so it was scratched from the truck race.

      Viens, who found a PAC willing to sponsor his and Nemechek’s rides, said the idea was borne out of his political stance.

      “I support the president. I support him and I’m gonna continue to support him,” Viens said.

      “I was sitting with a buddy at South Turn, having wings and a beer, and we were talking about different ideas,” he said. “He goes: “The president is running for office. How cool would it be to put Trump on

      A Zogby Poll taken in January 2018 showed NASCAR fans gave the president a 64% approval rating, as opposed to 46% of the American public.

      So barring any last-minute change, no one will be high-banking a Bernie, Biden or Buttigieg car.

    I keep wondering what, if anything could these scumbags be holding over PDJT’s head? And it hit me…
    NOTE: This is NOT to say he’s done anything wrong.

    Something that stuck with me– Back in the beginning, when Nunes gave his very FIRST Presser, having just learned about what they’d really been doing to PDJT +++… He approached the Press visibly shaken, looking white as a ghost. He said what he’d just been shown, had absolutely NOTHING to do with Russia. (That video soon disappeared)

    So if you factor they were invasively SPYING on PDJT & his family (unlawfully so), & on EVERY aspect of their PRIVATE lives… It’s not a stretch to think how far beyond reasonable they likely took it. I recall someone early on saying in relation to the spying, they had cameras in bathrooms/bedrooms, essentially EVERYWHERE!

    Speculation, but what if they have pictures/videos of this everyday living? People doing ordinary things we all do– but things that might be generally embarrassing if others were to see it.

    Now imagine if that unjustly gathered material was not just of you, but those you cared most about? Even if you personally dgaf, would you want to spare the others such an experience? See my point??

    If you think these sickos wouldn’t dare– you are seriously underestimating them! Blackmail is DC’s SOP, it’s how they CONTROL people. And if they can’t find anything, well they’ll just create it by any means possible.

    I also fully understand how intrusive & nasty they can be. I’ve been through targeting… the hacking/ harassment/ stalking (on/offline), my privacy unjustly invaded. I’ve been falsely accused of the most asinine things, having zero basis in fact. I’ve had my own life, & my childrens’ threatened. I can also detail the cyber-tools & methods they utilize– things I should know nothing about! I have endured not just emotional, but physical injuries. I finally MOVED several states away for safety!

    Somebody needs to be paying CRIMINALLY for all the BS!! And I am NOT alone in this plight!

    Realize, I’m just a stay-at-home mom. One who happens to be good at digging online, a/o piecing things together in analysis. But it’s simply a hobby, one I do to pass the time. The problem… my only loyalty is to the TRUTH– & it’s on the wrong side of certain objectives.

    However, I REFUSE to be silenced! My motto: “– I have acted fearless and independent and I never will regret my course. I would rather be politically buried than to be hypocritically immortalized.” ~Davy Crockett

          maybe what he saw that so unnerved him wasn’t necessarily classified but simply outrageous that it had been surveilled

          or is any surveillance product by CIA / NSA defacto classified simply because it’s them doing the recording?

      (Sorry this got long!!)

      As for the ROT in DC…
      I say (as far as all the DC scumbags), much if not ALL of the “leverage,” needs to be dumped into the Public realm. It’s only 1 of 2 ways the power is taken back, & rightfully placed back in the hands of the people.

      I guarantee whatever is held over the vast majority of DC Players– is FAR more sinister & humiliating than anything they could ever have on PDJT.

      I just can’t comprehend how so much of those infesting it, should have NEVER entered Politics/Gov! If you’re shady, or a crook… Uncle Sam does NOT need or want you!!
      You are NOT a PATRIOT if your very existence jeopardizes the integrity of not only JUSTICE, but the COUNTRY! It’s NOT a hard concept!

      But I learned this at a young age from my Grandfather. He was a highly respected man in his community… one who’d been asked many times over the years to enter Politics (local & beyond). His answer was always: “I have too many skeletons in my closet.”

      He was being honest, as he wasn’t a perfect man. Yet he spent much of his life making up for what he could. While I suspect he refrained mostly to spare his family, he deeply understood The SYSTEM. He also had the SELF-AWARENESS, & RESPECT for his country to recognize his potential for being compromised. And as such, he could not fairly represent any constituents he be representing. So he CHOSE Not to.

      He was an old-school Democrat… although I seriously doubt he could align with the lunacy of the Party today! He was an avid hunter, an extensive gun collector– I never saw him go anywhere w/o one. He could “shoot a tic off a dog’s back,” but a knife was his “weapon of choice” (he could back that claim 🤫).

      He was a WWII Navy Veteran (aerial gunner), a FREEMASON (31st Degree). We’ll just say back in the day, his “cover-job” was Pan-Am. He worked on some of the early NASA projects. After his retirement from his regular job, he’d still be called on as an armed escort for foreign dignitaries at the airport, traveling from one gate to another.

      He was the kind of guy who gave up a love of drinking, just to know his grandchildren. Up until his passing, “Mountain people,” under the cover of darkness, would venture into town to leave Mason Jars of Moonshine on his Porch steps. He always appreciated the anonymous gesture, & pass it on to family & friends.

      When I was 11/12, first teaching me to shoot– we were using a BB-gun (Pistol), my target was on the garage door. I may have aimed a little too high, shooting one of the windows out. He chuckled saying, “boy is your grandmother gonna be pissed!”
      Me in a panic, “What do I do?” He looked at me & said, “RUN! I’ll take the heat on this one.”
      He didn’t need to tell me twice– I RAN… & he took the blame! 😁

      So my longwinded point down memory-lane… IF you can’t do your job as intended– GTFO of GOV!!

      Other “Grandfatherly Wisdom”:
      * “NEVER register your guns, it’ll depreciate the value.” He also kept them behind a hidden wall.
      * “Never point a gun at someone you don’t intend to shoot.”
      * “Always shoot to kill.”
      * “If someone’s breaking in your home (say a window)… shoot him first, then pull them the rest of the way– BEFORE you call the Police! You may want to hand them a knife, just in case there’s any question later.” 😏

      I have thought this for a long time. I remember Trump saying this about Obama and he seemed thoroughly disgusted by what he said he had found out about Obama spying on him at Trump Tower. His choice of words seemed to imply that Obama had done much more than simply listening in to conversations on the phone or at meetings. https://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2017/mar/04/trump-accuses-obama-phone-tapp-calls-obama-bad-or-/

      By The Associated PressSaturday, March 4, 2017 6:42 p.m. CSTUpvote0
      #PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of tapping his telephones during last year’s election, lodging a startling allegation of abuse of power without evidence or explanation.

      #An Obama spokesman declared the assertion “simply false.”

      #In a series of angry morning tweets, Trump suggested his predecessor was behind a politically motivated plot to upend his campaign. He compared the alleged events to “Nixon/Watergate” and “McCarthyism!” He called Obama a “Bad (or sick) guy.”

      I saw that also. It’s a mess. The protesters are mostly led by well know agitators and have blocked commuter rail trains, busy downtown intersections in several cities etc and the police just escort them to their revolving protest areas. Some court injunctions have been issued to prevent them from blocking various gov’t offices etc. but the commuting public is getting screwed without any action.

      I looked up the progress of the USMCA and its in 2nd Reading in the House of C or Parliament with several weeks left for 3rd reading, then Committee discussions after each step and the Senate for completion. I don’t remember which Republican it was but he was boasting about how the Trump economy is doing great with all the trade deals in effect including the USMCA. But its not even finalized. But he is right about the booming economy.

    FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) – Growth ground to a halt at the end of the year in Germany, Europe´s largest economy, as manufacturing remained in a slump and exports fell. The figure underlines the challenge facing the eurozone.

    The state statistics agency said Friday there was zero growth in the fourth quarter and a mediocre 0.6 percent increase for the whole year.

    Lots of speculation on whether the treasonous perpetrators of the attempted take down of the President will face justice. We had better hope so. And here’s why. Let’s say a Democrat gets elected in 2024. Who do you think is going to be running the FBI and the Department of Justice? Did you see how all the Clinton people got recycled into the Obama Administration? If Comey and McCabe are not in prison, they will be available to run the FBI again. Sally Yates, how would you like to be Attorney General? There is a reason that most revolutions end in nasty purges. I’m not advocating that we have mass executions, but there is something about a felony record and incarceration that retards the possibility of a second act in a federal administration. I think Bill Barr and John Durham are on the clock. They will either get results, or they will be replaced by somebody who might. President Trump absorbs information constantly. If we are thinking about these issues, you can bet he’s thinking about them ten times as much. All he needs is one brave honest man in the AG position.

      I agree. We know Trump will try as best he can – whether it gets done or not is anyone’s guess. I think Trump knows that it is an existential crises for the nation as we knew it and for his family.

    Whilst president Trumps policies undoubtedly effects the German economy, it should be understood that their suicidal global warming policies also hurts.
    They have shut down virtually all grown up energy production to rely on windmills and Russian gas.
    They have probability the highest energy prices in the world and are bell bent on “saving the world” from the dreaded global warming ghost by killing the old ones with unaffordable energy bills.
    Then their industry also becomes uncompetitive despite illegal tax payers subsidies.
    So it’s a win win for the U S mainly thanks to your great President.

      Pointman wrote an elegant essay about his volunteer efforts tending to elderly who are freezing to death in their own homes because they can’t afford their inflated heating bills / energy costs that result from Britain / Europe putting all their eggs in the “renewables” basket.

      A couple excerpts:

      “I got the ones nobody else could get near, but eventually weaseled inside their defenses to get them out of bed, change the linen and introduce them to disposable diapers.Get some liquids down them, a regular infusion of some soup I’d bring along …

      “Putting a straw in a Styrofoam cup of soup and clasping your hands around theirs because they’ve got some shakes …

      “I learnt to spot the proud ones who’d never leave their house for some f#cking animal shelter pretending to be a care home …

        It appears most people in the US have no idea who stupid our so called leaders are.
        Without exception every European country is a fully paid up member of the global warming cult religion.
        Here in the UK we have an idiot Boris Johnston as prime minister.
        His present concubine is a died in the wool greenie, consequently he is a firm believer in the great global warming fraud.
        He has promised to ban all internal combustion engines by 2035 (or sooner). He has promised to make every house in the UK rip out our gas boilers and replace them with some type of electric system by the same date. All to be powered by windmills.
        He has banned all our abundant gas exploration and recovery by rock fracturing (cracking).
        Our biggest power station – Brax in Yorkshire – was deliberately built on top of a 600 year coal seam. It has been converted into wood burning by importing wood pellets from the southern States of America thousands of miles away.
        Now this imbecile is the leader of a conservative government – and you think you Americans have got problems?

    Viral Alarm: When Fury Overcomes Fear
    An Essay by Xu Zhangrun, Translated and Annotated by Geremie R. Barmé

    Translator’s Introduction

    In July 2018, the Tsinghua University professor Xu Zhangrun published an unsparing critique of the Chinese Communist Party and its Chairman of Everything, Xi Jinping. Xu warned of the dangers of one-man rule, a sycophantic bureaucracy, putting politics ahead of professionalism and the myriad other problems that the system would encounter if it rejected further reforms. That philippic was one of a cycle of works that Xu wrote during a year in which he alerted his readers to pressing issues related to China’s momentous struggle with modernity, the state of the nation under Xi Jinping and the mixed prospects for its future. Those essays will be published in a collection titled Six Chapters from the 2018 Year of the Dog by Hong Kong City University Press in May this year.

    Although he was demoted by Tsinghua University in March 2019 and banned from teaching, writing and publishing, Xu has remained defiant. His latest polemical work—“When Fury Overcomes Fear”—translated below, appeared online on February 4, 2020 as the coronavirus epidemic swept China and infections overseas sparked concern around the world.

    Read it here:


    As reported, he has disappeared.
    This may be the last piece I write’: prominent Xi critic has internet cut after house arrest
    Exclusive: professor who published stinging criticism of Chinese president was confined to home by guards and barred from social media.


    It seems now no can find his whereabouts.

        I accept corruption in government as a near-permanent phenomenon. As the saying goes, power corrupts. Thus, sooner or later, all Establishments become corrupt. That’s when it’s time for a change–hopefully peacefully. I don’t believe we were once pure and only now have become corrupt. That’s why, for the most part, I’m anti-Establishment. I was when the Establishment was ruled by the right and I am now when the Establishment has been ruled by the Left for the past 50 or so years. If our side wins decisively, which I hope and pray for and fight for every day for decades, sooner or later I will probably switch to the other side.
