    Wilbur Ross was a member of an international panel at Davis discussing global trade and possible US tariffs. After listening to the globalists on the panel decry the impact US tariffs would have on international trade, Ross asked one question that left the panel speechless. “Name one country in the world that is less protectionist than the US?” Crickets. There is none.

    Uncle Sap has been taken advantage of by the rest of the world and to the detriment of American workers. Industries and good paying jobs have been exported. We run a trade deficit with almost every country in the world. Trump wants fair and reciprocal trade. China, the EU, etc. protect their domestic markets using border taxes, e.g., VATs, and regulations. It is not a level playing field.

    I heard her speak at a local Rep luncheon. She is an amnesty supporter. She says we can’t deport the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens. She wants them to register, learn English, and get to the back of the line. This is amnesty.

    Attrition thru enforcement is the answer.

    Now that we are there, we need to finish killing ISIS before we leave.

    We have 2,000 on the ground now in Syria. We have been bombing Syria since September 22, 2014 on almost a daily basis. We deployed ground forces since November 2015. In March 2017, the Trump Administration deployed an additional 400 U.S. Marines in Syria to expand the fight against ISIS in the Raqqa offensive where they could provide artillery support for U.S.-backed local forces that were preparing an assault on Raqqa to liberate the city from IS militants.

    We can fight ISIS without making a major investment in ground troops. The danger is that with Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies cleaning out the last remnants of the rebel forces, there is the increasing possibility that our troops on the ground will become targets. The Russians lost over 200 "mercenary" troops advancing on US positions.

    Trump's instincts are to remove our ground troops from Syria. The neocons and allies like France are pressuring us to stay. Macron will be lobbying Trump to keep our forces in Syria and to remain in the Iran deal. Easy for him to say since France has very little skin in the game while we continue to contribute our blood and treasure into the Middle East meat grinder.

    We are the world's largest debtor nation. We can't afford to act as the world's policeman. Great empires throughout history have declined due to overextending their resources in foreign entanglements. Regardless of what Corker supports or not, we need to examine our involvement in the Syrian civil war using the criterion of our national strategic interests. Regime change is not a good reason. Do Assad or the Russians and Iran want to provide a sanctuary for ISIS?

    The Saudis want us to take out Assad because of his Iranian support. Israel is concerned about the Iranian presence on their border as is Jordan. In terms of the danger posed by Syria to the region, Iran is a bigger danger than ISIS.

    Who is telling him what to do? Obama is a sinister, malevolent force who has never changed his stripes since his Marxist community organizer days. You seriously underestimate him and his leadership abilities.

    These are your generals and they are fighting to keep their electorate ignorant and malleable.

    The political class depends on an uninformed, disinterested electorate who can't challenge their assertions. They do the bidding of their corporate paymasters. Our Founders never envisioned a well-paid professional political class that makes a career out of government.

    We will agree to disagree. IMO Obama was totally involved in what was going on. Hillary was supposed to be an easy winner. None of this would have been disclosed if Hillary had won. They were supremely confident that they could do anything with impunity.

    Obama detested Trump who humiliated him with the birther issue. Obama was forced to produce the "long form" BC because Trump pressured him. At the WH correspondents dinner where Trump was present, Obama ridiculed Trump. No doubt this contributed to Trump's decision to run. IMO Obama (and Hillary) wanted to destroy Trump even if Trump had lost.

    The Steele dossier was used to get the FISA warrant in October 2016 after failing to do so in July 2016, which is when the FBI launched its investigation into the Trump campaign. The January 6, 2017 intel report was more of a justification for starting this whole mess to begin with. It also set the stage for discrediting the Trump presidency. The narrative was that Trump was a puppet of Putin who won the election for Trump.

    What I learned this past week was that Comey never briefed Trump on what was in the entire Steele dossier, just the salacious piece on Russian prostitutes. He never told Trump about the inclusion of Cohen and Manafort and that the dossier was funded by the DNC and Hillary. In that regard, I find it incredulous that Obama did not know anything about what was in the dossier until Comey briefed him and Biden the day before they briefed Trump. That briefing was probably used to discuss the strategy on how to brief Trump. Anyone who thinks that Obama was not kept apprised about the dossier funded by the DNC and Hillary is a fool. Obama is up to his big ears in this conspiracy.

    Couldn't agree more. This is a highly politicized intel community issuing a report based on little facts and more on conjecture. It is a political document, not an intelligence product. It was done by three agencies (not 17) and rammed thru by Clapper to meet the artificial deadline set by Obama. It was ready in time to brief Trump and set the narrative two weeks before Trump was sworn in. This has all the hallmarks of a conspiracy.

    Obama, Clapper, Brennan, and Comey all knew that their plot was going to be revealed and needed to do a hastily prepared cover-up.

    I would hope that the DOJ IG report would investigate this plot, but I am not sanguine about the raised expectations by some about what the IG will conclude. It must always be remembered that this is an in-house investigation and the IG will try to protect the institution no matter how objective they purport to be. There needs to be an outside investigation. IMO we already have a constitutional crisis. If those responsible are not held accountable, it makes equal treatment under the law a joke. If Israel, Brazil, South Korea, the Philippines, etc. can hold their highest officials accountable, so can we. The Republic will be stronger for it.

    “I understand I’m going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush,” Stone said in an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. “She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She’s not going to heaven. She was a bad person.”

    Stone also reportedly wrote on Instagram that “Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days.”

    Stone was slated to be the keynote speaker for the group’s Lincoln Reagan Day Dinner on May 12, but chairman Mark Franks said that in light of his comments, he “ended our contract” with Stone.

    This report was used to push the entire Russia narrative.

    I knew the report was a pretext for something when Obama said it had to be on his desk prior to leaving office. It was used as a cover up for the entire Russian investigation into the Trump campaign, which the FBI began in July 2016 based on the Steele dossier, the Papadopoulos nonsense aside. It was also used to justify the monitoring of the Trump transition team and subsequent leaks when he took office. This was the fig leaf providing the rationale for the unmaskings and leaking.

    This is the text of the January 6, 2017 report that was signed off by Clapper. It was drafted and coordinated by the CIA, FBO, and NSA. One of the findings was:

    We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him. All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence.

    Notice that NSA (Mike Rogers) did not go along totally with the finding. I wonder how much Strzok contributed to the report.

    N.B.: Never forget that Russia and China are also signatories to the JCPA (Iran Deal). The Russians constructed Iran’s nuclear reactor and there are plans for three more. Corker is the one who led the bogus deal that allowed Obama to get Senate “approval” for the deal by turning the Senate rules on their head by requiring that two-thirds of the Senate had to vote against the deal for it to be rejected.

    Corker and Alexander are supporting legislation that will require Congressional involvement in future US actions in Syria. IMO this is not a bad thing. We are in Syria to eliminate ISIS, not for regime change.

    The author must have missed Cohen’s tweet re the McClatchey story. Cohen still denies vehemently that he was in Prague and met with the Russians. He claims he has never been to Prague.

    Cohen dropped his suits against Buzzfeed and Fusion GPS for a number of reasons. He must conserve his resources now that the Feds are building a case against him. And now that his records have been seized, Fusion and Buzzfeed could use it as a pretext to scour his records under discovery and use the information to discredit him even if it nothing to do with the dossier.
