      It looks like Trump will have to threaten to put ever-increasing tariffs on Mexico again if they don’t control their border with the US. It worked the last time Trump warned them.

        PT could use the virus to close the border. Mexico now has a confirmed case. Since everyone is crying “pandemic” to crash the market, PT can agree with them, and shut down our borders.
        We still have illegal aliens coming in every day all day long, including Chinese.
        Shut down the pedestrian traffic completely.
        Hopefully, we will not let them in or the caravans forming.

    • The human traffickers desperately want to keep making their “deliveries.” The person enters the US and then disappears. Of course he will never appear before a US court. He will obediently hide from the US law and never say ‘no’ to anything that the company which is harboring him may tell him to do. If his farm-boss tells him to jump into a poisonous tank of insecticide he will do it instantly, less the Federales show up at his front door that night.

      This is the true reason why corrupt judges want to pass injunctions that prevent US immigration law from being applied: they want to assure a continuous supply of slaves. Forget the 13th Amendment. Both “slavery” and “involuntary servitude” (“indentured servants” created by non-immigrant visa programs) are very lucrative indeed.

      “The Wall,” and policy enforcement issues like these, are the tip of the iceberg of a truly vast criminal enterprise that right now brings “immigrants” to the American border from Africa. (Hint: you can’t get there by walking.)

      This was posted yesterday too. The doctor suggests we stay away from sick people. The problem with coronavirus (and many other illnesses) is that people can be contagious before they develop symptoms. So it makes it very difficult to follow his advice.

      Also, if you are flying or taking any other kind of transportation where you are in close quarters with other people, are you supposed to take everyone’s temperature? Check them for other symptoms?

      Washing your hands is a good thing, but it doesn’t stop viral particles floating through the air from landing in your eyes or being inhaled into your nose or mouth.

        Bottom line….considering the death rate ….would you rather be around someone with the flu or this virus?. Same sort of people fall victim…the elderly and people who have pre existing conditions …this has gotten so out of hand.


        • No symptoms and no increase in temperature. Value of travel restriction! I get the influenza vaccine every year. The current vaccines are best guess (influenza type A genetics makes for interesting reading and explains much of the yearly individual vaccine failures) but taking the vaccine is a positive action. A better version of “which would you rather” would be: Would you rather have the influenza vaccine and encounter someone with the flu or would you rather not have the flu vaccine, have a chat with an asymptomatic Covid-19 individual and then a few days later meet someone with the flu. From what is known infection with one of these viruses is not going to preclude a concurrent infection with the other. Both seem to have immunosupressive characteristics and use different receptors for cell invasion.

      Something I’d forgotten – the unhappiness over Stop & Frisk is a primary reason why a Communist was elected Mayor of NYC.
      Stop and Frisk does work. It was also abused. Whenever those in power wield it in an unconstitutional manner, it ends up interfering with the rights of innocent Americans.

        “….stop and frisk works….Whenever those in power wield it in an unconstitutional manner…”
        Curious to know where in the 4th amendment, or anywhere in the constitution, stopping and groping US citizens is allowed. If the constitution is a charter of government limits, then what’s not expressly permitted is expressly denied.

  12. Reserved55 says:

    “A common example in defamation law is illustrative. If a food critic writes in a restaurant review that the soup was tasteless, he is offering an obvious opinion. He didn’t like the soup, although others might disagree. It is a matter of subjective judgment that can neither be right nor wrong.

    However, if the critic writes that the soup was cold instead of hot, this is a verifiable statement of fact that can be either proved or disproved. It just so happens that the waiter secretly snapped a photograph of the table showing steam rising from the cup of soup as the critic blew on his spoon.

    Therefore, the critic’s culinary review contained a knowingly false statement of fact that damaged the good name and reputation of the restaurant, which is the definition of defamation. The owners of the restaurant would have a viable case for libel.”

    I’m not buying into the idea that Joe and Jane Sixpack are freaked out over the coronavirus.

    Many people in my everyday travels whom I have asked about it didn’t even know what it is. The MSM of course is doing their doom and gloom to hurt President Trump. But they are preaching to the choir. People who are watching the MSM are either already Trump haters or are smart enough not to be freaked out because the media says so.

    The stock market is definitely having a negative impact on the working man’s 401k etc but it will come back. And the Main Street economy is still rolling along in spite of all the made up panic.

    President Trump’s policies have moved us away from an economy where every drop in the stock market is a big deal. Wall Street vs. Main Street.

    Chill out peeps.

      I think the people most freaked out are the casual consumers of news. People who rarely watch the news and people that are very well-informed are less freaked out.

      This is actually the case with many issues: the person who never watched the news actually knows more because he bases his opinion with what he says with his own eyes. The news, by its very nature, distorts reality because normal things are not news.

    FISA TO BE RE-UPPED, SPYGATE REFORMS DELAYED: Careful reading of the coronavirus emergency funding bill that will pass Congress soon will likely also uncover a reauthorization provision for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

    Just don’t expect to see any of the reforms Republicans say must be enacted to prevent future recurrences of the FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign in 2016. Most important among those reforms is a ban on bulk metadata collection derived from telephone calls by individuals within and without the country.

    So sad. The Swamp being the swamp.


  18. the_donald was more or less kicked off of reddit. 700K subscribers is a lot of support for President Trump and reddit couldn’t stand that.

    Fortunately hhey have a new site thedonald.win off of the reddit plantation.

    If you can, show them some love and sign up. I just recommended the other direction as well for them to come and visit this site: https://thedonald.win/p/4AkRNry/the-conservative-treehouse/

    Basically satire at this point. Yup. the ICA can be read as satire too.


    From the ICA:

    pg 1

    In trying to influence the US election, we assess the Kremlin sought to advance its longstanding desire to undermine the US-led liberal democratic order, the promotion of which Putin and other senior Russian leaders view as a threat to Russia and Putin’s regime.

    pg 4

    Russian media hailed President-elect Trump’s victory as a vindication of Putin’s advocacy of global populist movements—the theme of Putin’s annual conference for Western academics in October 2016—and the latest example of Western liberalism’s collapse.

    BREAKING NEWS: Mike Pompeo will sign peace deal with the Taliban TOMORROW says Donald Trump – opening way for thousands of U.S. troops to leave Afghanistan
    Pompeo will fly to Doha, Qatar, to witness agreement with the Taliban
    Event will see America’s top diplomat stand with leaders of militants, who harbored al-Qaeda before the 9/11 attacks
    They are responsible for the deaths of thousands of American servicemen and women
    Signing comes after a week in which both U.S.-led forces and the Taliban committed to a reduction in violence
    Under the plan being signed, the U.S. is to reduce the number of troops in Afghanistan to 8,600 from about 13,000
    Much of the plan remains vague, except to say that American troops will withdraw
    In return Taliban promise not to let extremists use the country as a staging ground for attacking the U.S. or its allies

    President Trump flipped the 9th. WTH?


    • Eric says:

      The flipping story wasn’t correct. There are still more Marxists than conservative judges in the 9th circuit, but it’s getting close to being flipped.


      • thedoc00 says:

        That is correct these are two different sets of judges. This is the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The primary case and Prager case were heard before the new judges appointed by the President the 9th Circuit Court were seated.

    The wife has the local NBC BS station blasting away downstairs. Just heard the President “has officially put Radcliff back up as DNI candidate.” So, it appears SD potentially made a good call on the trade off last night, Radcliff for FISA.

    Chris Matthews dared to criticize Sanders. Now he’s accused of sexual harassment. Totally appropriate.

    Radcliffe for FISA renewal.

    Looks like we got sold out just like declass threat was sold in exchange for Killing Mueller Report.

    Very disappointing!


    • IGiveUp says:

      yeah hope we use it to spy on everyone red while we’ve got the chance because it won’t be that long til the periscope is turned around again and looking at us.


  40. IGiveUp says:

    So what was all that bs about Grenell?


  41. citizen817 says:

    So what exactly has changed the dynamic, that the SSCI would allow Ratcliffe to the ODNI position?

    Because of their direct role in confirming the officials who would have access to the evidence of their compromise, the SSCI can block anyone who would be a risk to them.

    President Trump nominated John Ratcliffe for the position of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).  Senator Burr informed the White House that nominee does not align with their interests.  President Trump withdrew the nomination.



    • Eyes Opened says:

      I believe that under the Federal Vacancies Act Grenell can remain Acting DNI as long as Ratcliffe’s nomination is pending and for an additional 210 days after the nomination is withdrawn. I’m not yet convinced that Trump traded FISA for Ratcliffe. I think he’s maneuvering the RINOs into either confirming the guy he wants or leaving Grenell there to do the job anyway.

    The CN&N not only politicizing but also lying

    2,876 deaths 84,173 infected = .03 rate not “2.0”

    In the next hour of New Day, Gupta was joined by the infamous lying political animal Zeke Emanuel, who further politicized it and demeaned the President, just as Gupta did in this segment.


    • WRB says:

      2,876 deaths 84,173 infected = .03 rate not “2.0”

      What are you trying to say? It appears you are confused, and are spreading that confusion.

      The empirically observed 2% mortality rate (which may be much lower in the US, with its better health system) means 2 out of 100 cases. Your calculation shows a rate of 3/100 (or 3%), which is comparable. What is your point?
