    I love Lou Dobbs but I worry about his temper lately. He has been very quick to shut down and or interrupt his guests lately even allies like Dr. Peter Navarro if he senses any minute disagreement.

      A few times I had to yell to my television from my couch – ‘Calm Down Lou. You’re going to make yourself sick’.

      Soon he will have trouble arranging for guests to be on his show. Nobody wants to get into an argument with Lou Dobbs.

      I do understand how he feels. It gets awfully frustrating trying to have a conversation with people lately, but he has to get himself in control.

      Agree. The anger gets in the way of his job and then it becomes all about Lou. If I want that I will go to an event where he is speaking. I want him to interview the subjects professionally.

      We have noticed that too. I’m not quite sure what is going on with him. He needs to calm down, listen to his guest’s responses, then pose his next question. I know Lou reads Sundance so maybe he’ll take our advice.

    Rubio sounds alarm that peddling (Trump) conspiracy theories does Russia’s disinfo work. “It’s imprtnt to remind everyone that Putin is not a Republican or a Democrat,” Rubio said. “What he seeks more than anything else is to put us at each other’s throat”

      Rubio is a RINO who hates Trump, which is why traitor Mitch put him in Burr’s place. It will be VERY difficult for Nunes to get any help from that committee now.

      Although Rubio’s statement about Putin creating more contentiousness is true, the RINO’s have been more than willing to go along to get along due to their own corruptness. Rubio fits that description. His colors will be revealed soon enough. With Turtle appointing him we probably already have our answer.

    Although the depth of corruption within the DOJ, the FBI and the rest of the Deep State federal bureaucracy more than a little astonishing, what is really placed in high definition relief by these revelations is just how badly the soft coup has failed. And as Sundance shows here, the more we find out, the more we can see just threatening these guys were to the president. There is, however, an old saying that fits here; If you are going to attack a king you better make damn sure you kill him. In their arrogance the Deep State conspirators believed their own propaganda and thought President Trump would be easy to get rid of. But, instead of having insight into Trump, the plotters actually had absolutely no idea just who they were dealing with. Now they are about to find out.

      Unfortunately for us, we would not see that event, because the king before Trump would have killed US. To speak against the king was treason and death by hang draw quarter, and there was zero defense, zero proof required.

      Know the history of kings in England at changes of reign, and how it affected the people.

      Presidents have limits because our forefathers were sick of kings and split the powers.

      So China is doing it–totally blowing off their part of the 1997 agreement with the UK and is taking Hong Kong–and the real catcher is, China is blaming the U.S. for the expected ‘conflict’ they are planning.

      In addition, I know China has amassed great numbers of troops on the border they share with India (a concerning build up that India promises to match).

      We know about China’s aggression in the South China Sea and accelerated agitation over Taiwan.

      Forgive me, but I have serious thoughts that Covid-19 may be playing a role in communist China’s bold (and wreckless imo) moves.

        The best analogy of the Wuhan Virus release is the massive gas attacks that preceded assault in WWI. The aim was to incapacitate and/or slow the enemy’s ability to respond to the actual physical assault. Later in the war, the Allies and Germans used gas to also attempt isolating the region under physical assault.

China Inc. needs the access to cash and will barter for death’s of 1,000 cuts vs flat out relocation and occupation. The mountainous border region in India and Taiwan are secondary and diversionary attacks.

          I think Henry is saying that this is all half-measure and posturing; the real problem is not being dealt with or fixed; that the only solution at this point is extreme action that would never be possible under our current regime.

          And yes Henry, I share the frustration. But as tempting as it is to think about Commissar Yarrick dealing with this situation in his very direct manner, that option isn’t open to us. I’d love to see the hammer brought down on these people too, but any action the government is capable of taking is going to be slow and not entirely effective.

    Governor’s Hypocrisy Exposed In Local Television Investigation: Lujan Grisham Violates Her Own Non-Essential Business Shutdown Order And Goes Shopping!

    Excerpt:

    Albuquerque, May 27– A KRQE investigative report reveals that days after Gov. Lujan Grisham shut down non-essential businesses and sternly lectured New Mexicans to stay home, she discreetly used her political power to reopen an Albuquerque jewelry store to make a personal purchase. While locally owned mom-and-pop businesses were shuttered, Lujan Grisham slipped under the radar and compelled a store employee to get her jewelry. Her sneaky and deceitful action violated her own order and the public trust of New Mexicans.

      So once again most world leaders will “voice concern” over what is happening, but will not step up to the plate to ensure freedom, liberty, or basic rights.

      They do this because they are afraid of the tyrant that they themselves have helped create by feeding it money and power while ignoring the many broken “contracts” and laws that China has left strewed and broken behind in the wake of it’s destructive march to rule and control.

      Will they all sit and watch while once again we are reminded of; “First they came for the……………..”? We’ve seen this before, time and time again, and it never ends well.

      My heart and prayers go out to the people of Hong Kong. And to all people across the globe that are being crushed under the heal of government and ideological tyranny as it is happening across the world including here in the US.

      Stand!
