    During a portion of an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” released on Thursday, former Secretary of State John Kerry criticized President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and stated he didn’t believe President Trump’s walk back of his comments, asking, “how can anyone buy walk back after walk back, when you take positions here, and then you take positions over here and you’re repetitively walking back and changing?” Kerry said he found the Helsinki presser “shocking. I found it to be one of the most disgraceful, remarkable moments of kowtowing to a foreign leader by an American...

    19 Jul 20181 President Donald Trump said he looked forward to running against former Vice President Joe Biden in 2020, calling him a “dream” opponent. “I dream about Biden. That’s a dream,” Trump said in an interview with CBS anchor Jeff Glor. Trump said that Biden ran for president three times and never won more than one percent of Democratic support in the primaries. “President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did,” Trump said, adding that Biden was able to do “fine” as a vice president.

    Speaking of treason, is it true that President Obama ordered his Intel and law enforcement agencies to stand down while Russia was actually in the act of meddling into our elections? And seeing that Hillary brought it up during the campaign, then she knew about it too. What did the president know and when did he know it? Why did they take no action at the time?

    NYU Russia expert Stephen F. Cohen and FNC's Tucker Carlson discuss the president's meeting Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and calls of "treason" from Democrats and Intel officials. TUCKER CARLSON, FNC: Assess, if you would, the reaction today to this press conference and to the summit between Putin and Trump/ STEPHEN F. COHEN: The reaction by most of the media, by the Democrats, by the anti-Trump people is like mob violence. I've never seen anything like it in my life. This is the president of the United States, doing what every other president before him, since FDR in 1943...

    This is not an anti-Iraq war rant; i fought in the streets in 2003 with Freepers & groups like Protest Warrior counter protesting the "peace protestors". Nor is this a rant against law enforcement- my dad was NYPD for almost two decades. Rather this is a reminder with facts for those who believe we should just blindly follow our politicized "intelligence" agencies. The same intelligence operations telling us russia interfered in our elections: 1- told us Iraq possessed WMD 2- never connected the dots in the lead up to 9-11; the worst terrorist attack on US solid 3- dismissed evidence...

    The Truth
    The one thing the Deep State fear the most against President Trump is the truth - that is the truth about them being exposed unadulterated and unfiltered, where the deep state media can not massage (filter) and hide information from the American people. Trumps ‘trump card’ is to declassify all relevant Russian investigation/FISA documents. Obviously elements within the DOJ is slow walking documents to Congressional oversight committees or outright refusing to release them upon repeated requests. Everything is being coordinated to damage and bring down President Trump in any fashion. They won’t stop until Trump is gone and Trump knows...
  • Should President Trump trust the CIA/FBI/DOJ deep state swamp?

    07/16/2018 1:22:31 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 189 replies
    Oh, my. The media and the leftists (including GOPe RINO NeverTrumpers) cannot understand why President Trump doesn't trust the deep state CIA/FBI/DOJ political operators, ie, the deep state swamp. Can't be that these same deep state swamp dwellers have been colluding and working overtime for the last several years using and abusing their government offices trying to prevent Trump from winning the nomination, prevent candidate Trump from being elected, prevent president-elect Trump from taking office, trying to overturn President Trump's election? President Trump was elected specifically to drain the swamp. No one said it was gonna be easy. Looks like...

    The question is, if Russian intelligence agencies successfully hacked into the DNC servers and worse, our election systems, shouldn't someone in our government be held accountable? What were our own intelligence and law enforcement agencies doing at the time? Sleeping at the switch? Why didn't Obama, Hillary and the democrats harden their systems and train their people in cyber security? Why was Hillary not prosecuted for her illegal and obviously NOT secure personal server that had classified government documents flowing through it to Russia and whomever, including assorted sexual perverts laptops? This all happened on Obama and Hillary's watch! Thank...

    The latest batch of Axios/Survey Monkey polls shows that Democrats are in real danger of losing three U.S. Senate seats, which means they have no chance of capturing that chamber in 2018. In order to take control of the Senate, Democrats must hold on to all 10 seats currently up for grabs in states President Trump won in 2016. On top of that, they must snatch two seats from incumbent Republicans. According to these polls, Democrat incumbents in Florida, North Dakota, and Indiana are losing to their Republican challengers by three, five, and two points, respectively. Another endangered Democrat incumbent,...

    MSNBC’s “AM Joy” host Joy Reid lamented Sunday how the media viewed former President George W. Bush and Sarah Palin as authentic and enchanting because of their speech while also “disparaging” former President Barack Obama for “being almost too erudite and articulate.” “There is a thing in Republican Party politics where not being erudite as a speaker is seen as a virtue,” said Reid. “It was with George W. Bush, the idea that he’s plain-spoken, and so, when he would mangle the language — even the media would read that as authentic and great, right? He would make up words...

    The media is saying trump caved. And that we are back to catch and release. Is this true or are they lying? Keeping children with parents is fine. BUT NOT if it means illegals aren't being held accountable. if this EO makes it harder to enforce our border laws than I'd rather go back to separating children from parents. the liberals are demographically destroying our country. that can't be allowed to happen.

    If your kids don't know these things, it's time you seriously considered educational alternatives for your child. And please don't say you can't afford it, because you can't afford not to. If you love your children, take them out of public school, find a good private/parochial school, homeschool, or simply keep them at home. They'll learn a lot more watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune than spending seven hours in a government-run holding tank for the children of dysfunctional parents. Below are subject matters that my peers and I learned between the ages of 10-17. These issues and facts were...

    "FACT CHECK: Are Democrats Responsible For DHS Separating Children From Their Parents?" "In an interview with NPR's Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep Tuesday, former President Barack Obama's domestic policy director, Cecilia Muñoz, stated unequivocally that separating children from their parents was not a policy the Obama administration followed. "The Obama administration did not do that, no. We did not separate children from their parents," Muñoz said. "This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general," which Muñoz said "puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world's history."https://www.npr.org/2018/05/29/615211215/fact-check-are-democrats-responsible-for-dhs-separating-children-from-their-pare
