    • lovely says:

      I am believing more and more that President is the revolutionary that he claimed to be on the campaign trail. He has toyed with running for president since the 80’s . He is a builder, he knows what is under the ground on which he is going to build, he knows what permits are going to be easy to get and what permits are going to take negotiating he knows about air rights, municipal sewer laws, and everything in-between, he is prepared to build before he puts a bid in on land or a building.

      President Trump could read a blueprint while standing on his head and tell you what is right and wrong with it.

      He lived and prospered in the cesspool of NY real estate because he always did his home work and he is naturally sharp, a sharpness that he honed over the years which has made him even more dangerous to his foes. He reads people better than any previous president, he used Reince but Reince was never let inside, nothing Reince leaked was truly damaging, Trump played the RNC like a fine tuned piano. Reince was used to make the RNC and DNC think that they could let their guard down a bit. RNC and DNC sighed with relief, they had an inside man sitting on Trumpโ€™s lap.

      I think Sessions is on Team Trump. Remember the public tif between President Trump and Sessions and Sessions recusing himself over the Russian campaign connections? ๐Ÿ˜‰Sessions even offered to resign.

      Remember Comeyโ€™s testimony was that Putin hates Clinton! he said it 3 times during a legal proceeding in while he was under oath, remember I commented on how weird it was for an attorney to say such an odd thing as soon as it happened. Remember it seemed rehearsed? But I was wrong about the impetus. Think of the rhetoric of Trump and Clinton, if someone was playing a role who is more likely to say such a grandstanding statement Trump or Clinton? President Trump.

      This is laughable, there was a video of Comey saying โ€œPutin hates Clinton !โ€ three times in less than 3 minutes but I canโ€™t find it. Look at Comey’s face he is slightly nauseous looking throughout the testimony. Remember Comey threw Loretta Lynch under the bus during his testimony and said that Lynch pressured him over Hillary’s emails and made him “uncomfortable” ๐Ÿ™„. That was a huge indicator if we knew what we were looking at.

      I believe this is spot on;

      If we knew about the Uranium before the election, candidate Trump knew a heck of a lot more than we pedestrians knew. If we knew about the Uranium before the election so did Sessions. It is that simple.

      Mueller and Comey, who are very good friends have probably been given blanket immunity long ago. They are both bright men, they are both dirty, they know what is happening, go down with the ship or take the lifeline President Trump is throwing to them. Blanket immunity allows them to lie in the capacity as a tool of the State. If they lie about anything else their immunity is gone immediately.

      Mueller has filled his team with enemies of Trump. Trump smiled. Let them dig, they are digging their own graves.

      The Manafort indictment is a joke, insofar as the Trump Russia collusion is concerned. The MSM cried and Hillary raised her right eyebrow. President Trump knew exactly who Manafort was before he allowed him on his team, Manafort was a perfect patsy.

      President Trump seems especially at ease lately. The only time I have seen him tense up was when he had someone extremely uncomfortable next to him, the traitor Paul Ryan. Look at both of their body languages, President Trump actually crosses his arms when he is talking, closing himself off from the gawking bobble head Paul Ryan.

      Candidate Trump said during the primaries that Hillary rigged the primary. President Trump knows things that would curl the toes of the Clinton Clan.

      Does anyone think President Trump sits around whining about why something isn’t getting done? President Trump knows exactly what the DOJ and FBI are both doing.

      So well played it is stunning. President Trump scored in the 98% on his entrance exam for Wharton. He is a genius, he is a revolutionary, he has a vault of ammunition to use against the enemies of America and he has played them like a fiddle.

      President Trump thinks they are all morons and he is right. He labeled Hillary โ€œCrooked Hillaryโ€ a long time ago. Trumpโ€™s โ€œcrazyโ€ tweets are proven right, again and again.

      Wait for it.

          Not sure if you mean go time as in unleashed or getting the boot ๐Ÿ™‚ .

          My best guess is that President Trump is doing what President Trump always does going directly to the people and forcing the MSM to cover his tweets. Ley the MSM defend the Clintons and then attack Trump over Russia the MSM and the Clintons are boxed in.

          I think we are so used to being screwed over by politicians that it is hard for us to believe that Trump is actually who he presents himself to be and we are waiting for the rug to be pulled out from under us. For me I am finally putting a little trust in the rug.

          Did you read any of the excerpts from Donna Brazileโ€™s book ๐Ÿ˜‚. Hillary has got to regret calling her a water buffalo.

          I was in a meeting and reading on my phone during a lull and I burst out laughing, Brazile said she felt like a slave of Clinton, that Hillary was inept, that she wanted to replace Hillary with Biden, she said all kinds of terrible things about Hillary, that never ever would have happened if Trump wasn’t president. Brazil would still be a slave on the plantation.

          We get to see the Clinton dynasty crumble!

          According to Brazile Obama (the Leftโ€™s Sacred Cow) left the party in such disarray and debt that Hillary literally bought the DNC.Wait what? Hillary bought the DNC with money she got from Russia, so russia did influence our election. I was literally laughing so hard I cried. This book in my opinion is huge. Clinton is defeated. The reign of terror is coming to an end.

          ISIS is 90% contained, President Trump told his generals โ€œjust kill the bastardsโ€ the GDP is at 3% President Trump knows a lot more than he will ever reveal. Meanwhile Hillary is probably stone cold dead drunk and having nightmares. Bill looks like death.

          I think you know Iโ€™ve criticized Trump, I am not putting him on a pedestal but I am more impressed with him today than I have ever been. He is smart as a whip and he has planned for this to some extent for decades.

          IMO he is the best chance we have of getting the cart back on the cliff.

          And I will admit I am getting more and more annoyed with people who stomp their feet and say โ€œI know more than Trump, why wont he listen to me!!!โ€ What arrogance, we only see 10% of what is going on, just remember Rubioโ€™s face when candidate Trump exposed Rubioโ€™s real estate scam, that is the moment I knew that Trump had enough aces up his sleeve to take them all out.

          I have to believe that President Trump knows who Sessions is and that may mean Sessions gets the boot, maybe the Clintons have something on Sessions, ( I doubt it but nothing surprises me any more. President Trump though I have faith that he knows way more than me and way way more than the internet political geniuses.

          Just chatting Sand so I hope this doesโ€™t come across as argumentative though I fear it might. That is not my intention Iโ€™m just trying to say President Trump has given us every reason to believe that he has a very very long game in mind and he plans on bringing radical reform to our government that has become as corrupt as Putinโ€™s Russia.

          I am giddy happy about Brazileโ€™s breaking ranks and think that it is a huge tell of things to come.

          Optimism from Lovely. PS I did say for weeks ahead of time that we should all relax and that Trump was going to win.

    I wish I had started getting acquainted with George Washington’s Farewell Address a few decades ago instead of only in the last few years.

    We are so used to the operation of political parties and President Washington blew the whistle way, way, way back when – warning against the very idea of political parties.

    “He cautioned against three interrelated dangers that threatened to destroy the Union: regionalism, partisanship, and foreign entanglements. He warned his countrymen not to let regional loyalties overwhelm national attachments: ‘The name of Americanโ€ฆmust always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.’ At this time, many Americans primarily identified with their state or region, but Washington reminded the citizenry not to allow such attachments to divide them, lest ‘designing men’ convince them that differing local interests made the Union unworkable or unnecessary.4

    “In particular, Washington feared that geographic identities would serve as the foundation for the development of political parties. Indeed, this process had already begun with the emergence of the New England Federalists and Southern Democratic-Republicans. While we currently view partisanship as inseparable from the American political process, in the early republic, most condemned parties as divisive, disruptive, and the tools of demagogues seeking power.5 ‘Factionalism,’ as contemporaries called it, encouraged the electorate to vote based on party loyalty rather than the common good. Washington feared that partisanship would lead to a โ€œspirit of revengeโ€ in which party men would not govern for the good of the people, but only to obtain and maintain their grip on power. As a result, he warned Americans to guard against would-be despots who would use parties as ‘potent enginesโ€ฆto subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government.’6”

    I note that even the yahoo representing Bernie Sanders in this interview says that we are a democracy. Grrrrrr.

    I met the CUTEST 3 year old boy this morning. Stopped in to visit with my friend, Barbara, and catch up on things. While I was there, her daughter and her two children, 4 year old girl and 3 year old boy came in.

    They were busy with other things (in her large house) and Barbara and I went into her large kitchen to sit at a large table there to continue our visit. In a couple of minutes, the little boy came into the kitchen and Barbara suggested that he stay in the living room with his sister while we visited. So he disappeared. For a minute.

    Then he came back, very quietly, and (as quiet as a mouse) came to the chair that was next to me, pulled it out, and got up and sat on it. Very quietly. Barbara was just watching him at this moment.

    Then he quietly laid both arms, crossed, on the table in front of him (almost at the top of his little head) and looked at her. She reminded him that he had been asked to go into the living room, and asked him if he might do that.

    Very soberly he explained, “I decided I needed a break.”

    Three years old.

    I about lost it. I turned and made eye contact with him (and he with me) and I asked him (didn’t know up ’til this point), “How old are you, honey?”

    Three years old.

    I told him that he had a great advantage in the life ahead of him because he has already figured out what some adults never figure out: sometimes a human being just needs a break.

    What a treasure contented children are – – – and especially those who are willing and able to engage meaningfully with big people.

    Made my morning.

    U.S. Embassies Around World Still Refuse to Hang Trump Portrait, Swamp Still in Control

    In multiple embassies around the world, particularly those staffed entirely by career Foreign Service officers, no portrait of President Trump or Vice President Pence has been hung. Up until last week, the swamp had an excuse โ€“ there was no official portrait and the swamp refused to go to the trouble to find unofficial ones.

    But itโ€™s not just the entrances to embassies where it seems the 2016 election never happened. All throughout the government, Obama holdovers who rabidly oppose President Trump and his policies still hold positions of extraordinary power. The swamp is alive and well.

    Consider the National Security Council, where Fernando Cutz is enabling Trumpโ€™s most mortal enemies โ€“ George Soros and the globalist Left โ€“ to threaten to topple the pro-American government of one of Americaโ€™s closest allies, Guatemala.

    Cutz is the director of South American policy at the National Security Council. He is a graduate of the Clinton School of Public Service, managed Obamaโ€™s cozying up to the Communists in Cuba, was on the Obama National Security Council staff in the โ€œglobal engagementโ€ office, and is a committed swamp creature of the foreign service genus…

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
