    Any opinion on Michelle Obama as VP pic?
    O bummer is out there…she is no where to be seen…Horror show if this happens


    • Perot Conservative says:

      Is this plausible?

      1. Rice or Michelle as VP pick.
      2. Biden implodes at debate.
      3. Country realizes he isn’t capable.
      4. Rice / Michelle become the candidate.

      I get the impression Michelle might like being POTUS for a short time, but wouldn’t like campaigning. She already knows everything.

      And BLM will back up the Brinks truck. No guess there.

      AOC also offered an amendment that would preclude using any digital delivery methods to aid in recruiting our armed forces.
      This would mean no tv, radio, web, or print ads, as digital is used is every one of those.
      AOC’s amendment was just barely defeated by a very few Socialist democrats in red districts,, who should be voted out of office anyway.

    Number Eight COVID-19 is lab creation

    French scientist who discovered HIV insists COVID-19 is lab creation
    Published May 1, 2020 4:32pm
    Updated May 1, 2020 10:14pm
    A 2008 Nobel Prize recipient for discovering the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has weighed in on the controversy about the origin of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and insisted that it is laboratory-made.


    EXCLUSIVE: There is increasing confidence that the COVID-19 outbreak likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.

      Cov 2 is a bio weapon.

      Released intentionally by the CCP.

      The CCP (Jan 2020) emphatically denied creating COV2, saying it was a “natural” disaster emanating from a virus infected human who had been bitten by a cov 2 infected animal in one of their “wet markets.”

      The “natural” disaster story didn’t fly .

      So now they are close to admitting they created it in a lab. The current story line is the lab was working on developing vaccines to stop the spread any virus pandemic. They were trying to save the wold; but, in the process, accidentally dropped the ball by releasing the stuff.

      The CCP lines the pockets of lots of scientist in the virus field. Which gets the CCP lots of support in important science journals. It’s hard for scientist to wrap their head around the idea this is a bio weapon.

      Not so for this guy. https://nerdhaspower.weebly.com/

        Thank you, I continue to learn.

        Be advised that we have strong reason to believe virus was created for a purpose. Since lab in china was funded by Soros and Obama primarily.

        Admitting it, would likely put Soros and Obama in a position they could not justify.

    Hong Kong Legislative Council election to be postponed for a year due to pandemic concerns


    “ Asked whether foreign countries would implement more sanctions against Hong Kong, Lam said Hong Kong’s affairs are China’s internal affairs. She said China’s policies for Hong Kong benefit the city, adding that she did not understand the logic nor reasons for foreign sanctions.

    Lam said she has no assets in the U.S. and does not want to go to the U.S. She also said she would “just laugh” at any potential sanctions against her and other Hong Kong officials.”

    Hong Kong’s top criminal prosecutor quits over differences with justice secretary

    “ Hong Kong’s top criminal prosecutor has resigned from the Department of Justice, citing differences with the justice secretary in an emailed memo that also mentioned his exclusion from cases pertaining to the recently enacted national security law.

    David Leung, the director of public prosecutions, has been working at the Prosecutions Division for 25 years and is due to leave by the end of the year.“

    He said being a prosecutor is a difficult but honorable job.

    “We never strive to get a conviction. Rather, we ensure that the charges laid are a proper reflection of the criminality on the available evidence, proper disclosure has been made, the defendant has a fair trial and finally the sentence passed is within range,” he wrote.

    In his email, Leung also said he understood that some staff members harbored concerns about the uncertainty of being suddenly posted to the division handling national security cases.“

    Number nine, COVID-19 Had a Lab Origin

    That COVID-19 Had a Lab Origin
    By Jonathan Latham, PhD and Allison Wilson, PhD

    Was Sars-CoV-2 created in a lab?
    In his statement, Petrovsky goes on to describe the kind of experiment that, in principle, if done in a lab, would obtain the same result as the hypothesised natural zoonotic transfer–rapid adaptation of a bat coronavirus to a human host.

    Viruses in prolonged culture will also develop other random mutations that do not affect its function. The result of these experiments is a virus that is highly virulent in humans but is sufficiently different that it no longer resembles the original bat virus. Because the mutations are acquired randomly by selection there is no signature of a human gene jockey, but this is clearly a virus still created by human intervention.”

    In other words, Petrovsky believes that current experimental methods could have led to an altered virus that escaped.

    Questions for lockdown apologists
    John Pospichal
    May 23 · 7 min read

    “…We now have mortality data for the first few months of 2020 for many countries, and, as you might expect, there were steep increases associated with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in each one.

    Surprisingly, however, these increases did not begin before the lockdowns were imposed, but after. Moreover, in almost every case, they began immediately after. Often, mortality numbers were on a downward trend before suddenly reversing course after lockdowns were decreed.

    This is an astonishing finding. But before I discuss its full import, and pose some questions to those who still defend the utility of lockdowns, I want to present the data that proves it.

    Here’s a series of charts by the Financial Times showing overall mortality and “deaths in excess of normal levels” in 2020 for a number of countries,,,”

    • Super elite covfefe999 loves her President! says:

      I don’t find that to be so inconsistent. The person is looking at deaths. People didn’t die on day one of the infection or symptoms. Some people have been hospitalized for weeks before they died. Cain was in the hospital for a month. The person ought to look at hospitalizations, not deaths.


      • WhiteBoard says:

        in summary if i want to kill you – i generate a lung covering – or lung attracted to rna molecule – it will inhibit proteins tht provide lung function by simply binding to them incessantly.

        then i utilize my media outlets to preach ventilators -so you first treatment stresses and fastens your death and offers no help.

        I next mask covid with cold antibody test – and mix in all deaths to be attributed to it – and i use aerosol’d cans to walk through strategic areas and spray to infect EXAMPLES I’ll use to scare you with media stories from the media companies i own.

        you arent thinking closely. you are thinking closedly. because you think people are nice like you. wouldnt use baby parts like a car tune up, wouldnt destroy villages for profit (Haiti), wouldnt make children into furniture or things that feel that doing 1 function their whole life is normal (having feet cleaned on them).

        if its bizarre – its because of our military has kept us from seeing it on our soild ‘openly’


    • Carrie says:

      When I see those charts, I think of the Utah study that had over 60% of all transmissions occur at the home. Well, the lockdowns sure made sure that happened!
      Oh, and where’s the one place most people refuse to wear their mask (rightfully so), in the sanctity of their own home.
      All these politicians and Fauci’s were just prolonging the inevitable! Sweden had it right.

    Treasury Sanctions Chinese Entity and Officials Pursuant to Global Magnitsky Human Rights Executive Order

    “ Washington – Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned one Chinese government entity and two current or former government officials in connection with serious rights abuses against ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). These designations include the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), Sun Jinlong, a former Political Commissar of the XPCC, and Peng Jiarui, the Deputy Party Secretary and Commander of the XPCC. The entity and officials are being designated for their connection to serious human rights abuse against ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, which reportedly include mass arbitrary detention and severe physical abuse, among other serious abuses targeting Uyghurs, a Turkic Muslim population indigenous to Xinjiang, and other ethnic minorities in the region.

    “As previously stated, the United States is committed to using the full breadth of its financial powers to hold human rights abusers accountable in Xinjiang and across the world,” said Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.”

      Commerce Department to Add Nine Chinese Entities Related to Human Rights Abuses in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region to the Entity List

      The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced the impending addition of the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Public Security’s Institute of Forensic Science and eight Chinese companies to the Entity List, which will result in these parties facing new restrictions on access to U.S. technology. These nine parties are complicit in human rights violations and abuses committed in China’s campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, forced labor and high-technology surveillance against Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR). This action will supplement BIS’s first tranche of Entity List designations in October 2019 involving 28 parties engaged in the XUAR repression campaign in Xinjiang.

      The Entity List additions restrict the export of U.S items subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to persons or organizations reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose a significant risk of being of becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The EAR imposes additional license requirements on, and limits the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, re-exports, and transfers (in-country) to listed entities.

      The listing will identify China’s Ministry of Public Security’s Institute of Forensic Science and Aksu Huafu Textiles Co. for engaging in human rights violations and abuses in the XUAR. An additional seven commercial entities will be to the list for enabling China’s high-technology surveillance in the XUAR: CloudWalk Technology; FiberHome Technologies Group and the subsidiary Nanjing FiberHome Starrysky Communication Development; NetPosa and the subsidiary SenseNets; Intellifusion; and IS’Vision.

    Please spend a second scanning this – and at some other time – help

    What was the reason again they released ( or submitted in the IG etc) the 03/17/17 clerk dated one to the public? the Official cover?

    I am aware of the cover for the leak… but what was the official STATED REASON they gave it to us?

    Can someone please refresh us.

    On July 21, 2018, the Justice Department released a heavily redacted version of the October 2016 FISA warrant application for Page,

    Am i correct in that it was ONLY released due to a FOIA from Judicial Watch?

    and instead of released the Original copy – they slipped in the Clerk dated one to take advantage of the release (to provide cover).

    Is this even important to talk about ?

    I see a Binder in the article of “briefs Continue” on 07/31 https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/31/briefings-continue/

    i see the arrow in the picture – You do too.

    i see a binder in the picture (you do too) that loooks like one you would use to brief.

    the clerk date at the end of the arrow shows Complicit!

    (this was an FBI release- FBI ! not a Senate Intel requested documents release; but would the FOIA request cover LEAK INVESTIGATION exhibits because it request all fisa content? ) – using a FOIA release to cover your Senate Intel – SHOWS COORDINATiON between handshaking WARNER and HANDSHAKING comey.

    Did Judicial Watch request the CLERK copy of the FISA? what was their actual request? its not whats in it, its whats on it.

    per judicial watch

    “The document production comes in a February 2018 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the DOJ rejected a July 19, 2017, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00245)). The lawsuit is seeking:

    Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

    Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

    Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.”

    SO WHAT DID WOLFE PLEAD TOO? (pay attention to his lie of unclasified, unclassified, unclassfied!)

    “Wolfe, 58, pleaded guilty last October to a felony false statement charge for lying to the FBI, but did not admit to leaking classified information. He did, however, concede discussing unclassified but non-public information with reporters in violation of Senate Intelligence Committee rules.
    Wolfe and his lawyers argued that he deceived the FBI because he wanted to cover up an extramarital relationship with a reporter. He feared that its disclosure would distress his family and cost him his job, they said.”

    extramarital affair cover to justify why they lied – WAIT FOR STRZOK pulling this.

    He talks of DISCUSSING IT – not SENDING IT (no interstate).

    and he says he is discussing unclassified info ( Pages request was unclassified when????)
    Pages fisa was unclassfied when??????????? how does WOLFE say he talked of unclassfied info? (because it was declassified for FOIA in Feb 2018?)
