Last weekend, snow fell in parts of the United States, including Washington DC.

Although I am neither a fan of snow nor DC, people took great photographs that revealed how picturesque both can be.

President Trump has been working at the White House since before Christmas, waiting to resolve the shutdown with the unresponsive Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-New York). Despite having had no escape for either the holidays or a game of golf at the southern White House at Mar a Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, even he was impressed:

This is why:

Here’s a short, yet evocative, video:

No photographic catalogue of America’s capital would be complete without scenes of the Washington Monument:

This splendid photo should win an award:

As should this one:

Here’s another scene I particularly liked:

Of course, 30 Democrats missed it all by being in Puerto Rico on a party junket.

They missed DC looking beautiful, adorned by snow — like a treasured grandmother wearing her heirloom pearls.

On Wednesday, November 28, 2018, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participated in their second ceremonial lighting of the National Christmas Tree in Washington, DC, near the White House.

Earlier that day, the First Lady defended her choice of red Christmas trees along the main corridor — the Grand Foyer — inside the White House:

This was the president’s official schedule for the tree lighting ceremony at The Ellipse in President’s Park:

Entertainment was provided and, afterwards, the tree was lit:

President Trump then gave a six-minute address, in which he thanked everyone who decorated the tree and made the event possible:

Tonight’s ceremony is only possible because of the hard work of the many talented individuals. They were working late at night. They were working early in the morning. They were working all the time. And my sincere thanks to everyone at the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. (Applause.)

He also thanked the entertainers:

There’s great talent. They’re going on to big things, many of them. I’ve seen them and they are something very special. Thank you very much. That was a great job tonight. (Applause.)

And this includes one very special group that has topped Billboard charts multiple times: the Dominican Sisters, who I met backstage, from Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Applause.)

These, by the way, are traditional Dominicans, not the ones who have gone trendy in recent years. These women are doing very well in expanding their community. This is one of the orders women want to join. May God bless them in their work.

You can read more about their 2017 Christmas album here. It was recorded in their chapel at the Ann Arbor Motherhouse:

But I digress.

President Trump retold the Christmas story beautifully — as he did last year (emphases mine):

For Christians all across our nation, around the world, this is a sacred season that begins 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ was born. An angel declared to the shepherds tending their flocks, “Behold, I bring you good tidings, great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is a born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” (Applause.) There in Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph held in their hands the son of God; the light of the world; and, through Him, the promise of eternal salvation.

He then went on to discuss the time that Americans selflessly give to each other and a spirit of national unity. I am certain that Stephen Miller helped to write this speech, evident in the fourth paragraph:

No matter one’s faith or beliefs, the Christmas season reflects all that is best in the American spirit. This is a time of the year for rejoicing with our family and friends, for spreading charity and goodwill in our commitment all over this country in all of our communities, and for giving thanks for all of the blessings in our lives.

We are especially thankful for the countless Americans who have given their time and passion to help those in need. Here in the audience today are a number of extraordinary foster families and guardians joined by the beautiful children they have welcomed into their homes. And beautiful children they are. Your devotion inspires us all. To every child in foster care: You are the precious loved one and gift of God. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.) Very, very special.

At this time of the year, we renew the bonds of affection between our fellow citizens, and we awaken the faith in our hearts that calls each of us to action. As we gather loved ones, our thoughts turn to those who are rebuilding their lives after devastating wildfires, destructive hurricanes, and terrible tragedy.

We are one American family. We hurt together, we heal together, and we will always pull through together. This is the United States of America. We are the best in the world, and there’s nobody close. (Applause.)

He ended with these words:

We ask God to watch over this nation’s heroes, and to shed his almighty grace upon our nation. And we pray that America’s light will shine more brightly and stronger than ever. And it will.

On behalf of Melania and myself and the entire Trump family — many of whom are with us tonight — I want to again wish you all a very, very Merry Christmas. May this Christmas season bring peace to your hearts, warmth to your homes, cheer to your spirit, and joy to the world. Merry Christmas, everyone. Merry Christmas and God bless you. Thank you. Thank you very much. (Applause.)

Something must have been on the radar, because the Trumps left quite quickly:

The press corps moaned:

Well said.

The Trumps’ safety deserves more concern than the inconvenience a back-biting member of the press corps experiences.

One hopes that the 2019 tree lighting is free from threats, real or anticipated.

The funeral for former president George Herbert Walker Bush took place on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at the National Cathedral (Episcopalian) in Washington, DC.

I’m not featuring too much on this, because a) most people have seen the funeral coverage in the media and b) Bush I was the only American over 60 who said he could not remember where he was when John F Kennedy was assassinated. I certainly remember where I was, and I was only a small child at the time.

That piece of Bush history came to light only a few years ago, thanks to the online world. Others might have already known it through lesser-known political writings.

Until that point, I admired Bush I a lot. I was delighted with the ‘Thousand Points of Light’ speech, which Peggy Noonan (Obama supporter, anti-Trumper) wrote. Bush delivered the speech when accepting the Republican nomination for president in 1988.

On the whole, I think he did a good job as president and was certainly worlds better than his opponent, Michael Dukakis from Massachusetts, would have been.

My two objections to Bush I’s presidency were ‘no new taxes’ which, strangely, ended up as new taxes, thereby enabling Clinton’s victory four years later. The other was the end of the first Gulf War, which seemed a bit incomplete. It was not surprising, therefore, that a second Gulf War ensued.

Historian Doug Wead appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight to discuss Bush’s presidency:

My condolences go to the Bush family, which is large and close-knit. They lost their two most important family members this year. Barbara Bush died in April. I believe that the former president, despite his chronic ailments, died of a broken heart.

Before moving on to Bush’s funeral, one must look at John McCain’s service, which was held three months to the day earlier: September 5.

Something happened at his funeral that recurred at Bush’s.

At McCain’s funeral, George W Bush passed a piece of candy to Michelle Obama:

Caption: ‘Thank you!’

Now on to the former president’s funeral. President Trump was informed of his death whilst at the G20 in Buenos Aires, on the evening of Friday, November 30. He and Melania issued a joint statement. He also spoke with Bush II and Jeb the following morning.

President Trump took this event very seriously, as he said at the G20 summit, when he cancelled his press conference:

A media moratorium on any in-depth interviews ensued. On Monday, Dennis ‘Nate’ Cain, who underwent a six-hour raid on his home, even though he is a protected government whistleblower, tweeted:

Meanwhile, the Bush family assured President Trump that no one speaking at the service would criticise him. They did that because the notional eulogies at McCain’s funeral were a Trump hate-fest.

The morning of the funeral, President Trump recognised the service as a time to celebrate life as well as to mourn:

The Secret Service paid a final tribute to the 41st president of the United States:

His Secret Service code name was Timberwolf:

At the funeral service, once again Melania Trump was seated next to Obama, just as she was at Mrs Bush’s funeral. On that subject, a group photo of presidential couples appeared after Mrs Bush’s funeral. Mrs Trump was cropped out in many articles using it. Here is the full photo, with Mrs Trump standing next to Michelle Obama.

On Wednesday, Bush II was not seated with the Obamas, as he was giving his father’s eulogy. However, he remembered Mrs Obama with candy on his way in:

It looks undignified to me, too, but I know nothing of Washington DC funerals for dignitaries.

A few unusual things happened.

One was the representation from Saudi Arabia:

Another is that Hillary Clinton had a moment:

Yet another was this silent exchange between former first lady Laura Bush and her brother-in-law Jeb:

And, finally, for whatever reason, the Trumps refused to recite the Apostles Creed.

That aside, President Trump, in the media’s eyes, could do nothing right.

The media are wrong. He shut down Washington DC — and post offices across the nation — on December 5.

Here’s another thing the media falsely criticised him for:

In closing, may President Bush rest in peace.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News has had quite a time of it lately.

So have his family members.

Radical leftists — an ‘Antifa’ element — have verbally attacked his wife and daughter in separate incidents because they oppose his on-air viewpoints, especially on the Latin American caravan.

On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, a group from the US capital — Smash Racism DC — ambushed the Carlson family home:

The Gateway Pundit posted a tweet from Smash Racism DC about making a visit to his home as well as this (bold emphasis in the original, those in purple mine):

The group is threatening Carlson and demanding that he leave town, saying that “tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either.”

The leftists were also chanting, “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!”

Smash Racism DC also posted a picture of a sign on Carlson’s door with his address written on it — which was removed by Twitter after inquiries from journalists. The account remains active however, despite all the threats made on their feed.

The group dispersed a couple minutes after the police arrived. No arrests were made.

According to a source, Carlson has been being harassed so much that he cannot go out to eat or safely use the front entrance at Fox News.

Tonight’s incident appears to have been organized by the same group that was behind chasing Senator Ted Cruz out of a restaurant in DC in September.

It is important to press home the point that DC police made no arrests:

The Daily Caller, which Carlson co-founded before he joined Fox News two years ago, had more to report on Smash Racism DC’s ambush. It took place shortly before Carlson was going on air (emphases mine):

A left-wing mob showed up outside Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house Wednesday evening, posted pictures of his address online and demanded that he flee the city of Washington, D.C.

Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller and host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was at the Fox News studio when the angry crowd showed up outside of his house.

At least one of the protesters went all the way up to Carlson’s front door, where they left a sign with his family’s home address written on it and rang his doorbell. Carlson’s wife Susie was home alone at the time

“Tucker Carlson, you cannot hide from the people you hurt with your rhetoric, your lies, and your hate,” the group wrote on Twitter, adding the hashtag “#KnockKnockTucker.”

The left-wing group’s Twitter account was suspended shortly after midnight on Thursday.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace released a statement Thursday denouncing the mob’s actions.

“The incident that took place at Tucker’s home last night was reprehensible. The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable,” Scott and Wallace said, adding:

“We as a nation have become far too intolerant of different points of view. Recent events across our country clearly highlight the need for a more civil, respectful, and inclusive national conversation. Those of us in the media and in politics bear a special obligation to all Americans, to find common ground.”

A Fox News article explains what happened:

Carlson, host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was not home at the time. He said his wife, Susie, was home alone and heard the commotion from the kitchen. She called the police and locked herself into a pantry, he said. His brother — who lives close by — arrived about the same time as law enforcement.

The host said activists rang his doorbell, broke his oak door and one protester was apparently caught on security video mentioning a pipe bomb.

D.C. police did not immediately respond to a Fox News email early Thursday.

Carlson said he was at the Fox News office in Washington working on his opening monologue when neighbors texted him about the commotion outside his home. His wife of 22 years did not contact him because she didn’t want to distract him before he went on air, he said.

The group eventually scattered. It was unclear if there were any arrests. Carlson said the group posted online the home addresses of his brother and his former college roommate, Neil Patel, who co-founded the Daily Caller with Carlson.

Carlson said he was not worried so much for himself as for his family:

Here’s the problem, I have four children,” he said by phone. “I never thought twice about leaving them home alone, but this is the reaction because this group doesn’t like my TV show.”

At least Twitter suspended Smash Racism DC’s account early on Thursday, November 8.

SFGate from San Francisco reported on Carlson’s conversation with the Washington Post about the incident:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson was at his desk Wednesday evening, less than two hours before his 8 p.m. live show, when he suddenly started receiving multiple text messages

“I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post in a phone interview. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. … Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”

Roughly 20 people had gathered outside Carlson’s residence, said Lt. Jon Pongratz with the Metropolitan Police Department of D.C. Authorities received a call at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and responded “within a few minutes,” Pongratz told The Post.

Pongratz said that the police were still outside the Carlson residence hours later and continue to patrol the block in case the protesters return.

SFGate reported the support that journalists who are politically left, right and centre gave the Carlsons.

Carlson also said that:

he went to “great lengths” to keep his home address private because of his family, who were all “very upset” by the protesters. He added that he loves his home and neighborhood and does not want to move.

“They think of Northwest D.C. as a tranquil sanctuary where they know everyone and everyone is nice,” he said. “They think of this as the greatest place in the world.”

Now, Carlson is worried about leaving his family alone at home.

“How can you go out for dinner and leave the kids at home at this point?” he said. “If they’re talking about pipe bombs … how do you live like that?”

He added that he also doesn’t know what he’s going to do about checking the mail. In October, pipe bombs were mailed across the country to high-profile critics of President Trump.

“I probably won’t open another package sent to our house from now on,” Carlson said.

Wednesday night’s events are the latest in a spate of harassment aimed at prominent politicians and media outlets, ranging from being heckled in restaurants to receiving packages containing explosive devices.

While he is no stranger to threats, Carlson said this time things went “too far.”

“I don’t think I should be threatened in our house,” he said. “I think I should fight back, and I plan to.”

He added: “I’m not going to be bullied and intimidated.”

The Gateway Pundit revealed that, in addition to Carlson and his brother Buckley, other conservative journalists have also been doxxed (had sensitive information revealed by a malicious third party):

the addresses of Ann Coulter, Daily Caller’s Neil Patel, and Sean Hannity.

The article added:

Someone affiliated with DC Antifa told The Gateway Pundit that the protest at Carlson’s home was “just the beginning.”

Tucker told his story to Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade on November 8. Much of the interview contains the aforementioned information, but Tucker did emphasise that his wife is ‘apolitical’ and said that one never discusses politics in DC, because so many people are friends across the aisle. Tucker, incidentally, was supposed to be enjoying a few days’ holiday. Instead he had to deal with the aftermath of a home ambush. No, it wasn’t a protest. As Tucker said, it was a threat.

Even worse, Tucker told Brian Kilmeade that he thinks one of the culprits could have been a guest on his show:

A few days later, news emerged that one of Tucker’s three daughters had been verbally abused at a DC-area country club in October. This incident involves a man — the alleged verbal abuser — who is a client of Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels’s lawyer. Several weeks ago, Carlson dubbed him Creepy Porn Lawyer, a name which has since gone viral.

Avenatti was arrested and later released on November 14 on charges of domestic violence:

But I digress.

Back now to the story about Tucker and his family. On November 10, Breitbart reported (language alert):

A Virginia country club revoked the membership of a man accused of verbally accosting Tucker Carlson’s teenage daughter last month, according to the Fox News Channel host. Conversely, the man referred to as Juan alleges Carlson assaulted him and is purportedly being represented by television lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Carlson provided a lengthy statement to The Hill’s Joe Concha Saturday, detailing the eyebrow-raising incident that reportedly involved the unnamed man, Carlson, and two of his children.

On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia,” Carlson’s statement begins. “Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘f*** c***.’ ”

“My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed,” Carlson continued. “My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘c**t.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.”

Carlson said he notified the staff at Farmington Country Club immediately following the incident, prompting a three-week investigation by the management. Juan’s club membership was annulled last week, the prime-time newsman told Concha. “I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do,” added Carlson. “I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger.”

Avenatti took to Twitter to refute allegations against his client Juan, who is Latino and gay. Carlson said that:

neither he or his college-aged son assaulted Juan, nor did he know he was Latino or gay. “What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics,” he said. “It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”

Responding to Carlson’s statement, Avenatti said the Fox News host’s version of events is a “lie,” while accusing him of being “intoxicated”. As pointed out by podcaster Jamie Weinstein, a previous collaborator of Carlson, the newsman doesn’t drink alcohol. The lawyer also alleged Carlson’s son committed “assault and battery.”

On November 12, The Daily Caller reported that Avenatti’s client Juan is considering suing Carlson.

On November 14, American Thinker revealed that Juan had been on the board of directors for The Women’s Initiative at the time of the country club incident. Oh, the irony! He stood down on November 13:

Hmm. One wonders whether the aforementioned lawsuit will go ahead.

Regardless, Tucker Carlson is a decent man with a decent family. He is actually pretty centrist and somewhat libertarian in his political outlook. Neither he nor his family deserve these horrifying verbal attacks on their privacy. Please keep them in your prayers.

On Saturday, August 11, 2018, leftists attempted to revive the peculiar melee that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017.

Meanwhile, on August 11, President Trump hosted his biker supporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club.

Charlottesville

In Charlottesville this year, the Left showed their true colours once again:

A Unite the Right 2 demonstration took place that day, just as it did last year. However, very few participants must have shown up, because Antifa were the stars of the show.

Antifa verbally abused reporters — ironically, the very people who defend them.

Breitbart reported (language warning in the link):

A crew with the left-wing anarchist group “Antifa” attacked and shouted at a USA Today reporter and photographer during a counter-protest in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

In a counter-protest to the “Unite the Right 2” protest, Antifa mobs descended on the streets of Washington, D.C., attacking police and threatening onlookers. The Antifa group also threatened and shouted down members of the media, including a USA Today reporter who said she was simply trying to do her job.

Exclusive footage taken by Breitbart News shows two members of Antifa cursing at and shouting down the USA Today reporter, telling her to “Stop taking pictures!”

“Are you going to report how many people they tear-gassed?” the Antifa member shouted at a photographer.

“If we knew,” the USA Today reporter responded.

The Antifa members then verbally abused the USA Today reporter with foul language. An AFP (Agence France Presse) photographer was also caught up in the incident:

After the altercation, the USA Today reporter and a photographer with AFP said they were just trying to do their jobs.

Then, there is the curious attitude of NBC towards Antifa then and now in Charlottesville. As NewsBusters reports, last year, their political director and news programme host Chuck Todd (emphases in the original):

used his MSNBC program, MTP Daily to elevate Antifa’s violence as a legitimate tactic against the right. He even doubled down and allowed them to use the formerly prestigious Meet the Press as a platform to push their hate and violent methods. Todd has never condemned them.

How ironic, then, that last Saturday night, an Antifa protester shouted foul language at two of Todd’s colleagues:

Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters.

On Twitter, Perry was documenting the protesters as they marched through the streets of college town when they started to get “very aggressive with the media” and trying to block their camera shots. “Yeah. We’re getting a lot of this. Protesters trying to grab our camera,” he responded to one Twitter commenter telling him to “f**k off national media vulture.”

NewsBusters included a Cal Perry video and even warned about the language content.

Meanwhile, protesters were also assembling in front of the White House. The NBC reporter there, Garrett Haake, said there was violence in Charlottesville, but instead of showing Perry’s video of the altercation involving him and a cameraman, showed their other coverage.

The following day, Chuck Todd ignored the abuse of his colleagues and launched into another anti-Trump diatribe. NewsBusters has the relevant part of the NBC Sunday Today transcript.

This is worth noting:

CNN’s Brian Stelter was in no position to be indignant about Antifa’s attacks on the media:

Washington DC

On Sunday, the scheduled right-wing protest, beefed up by the media, was, in fact, a damp squib. The violent Left dominated once again. The building in the background, by the way, is the Trump International, formerly the Old Post Office:

Here’s more irony about the media, especially CNN, defending Antifa past violence:

Bedminster

Some of President Trump’s longest and most loyal supporters are the Bikers for Trump.

Trump welcomed 180 of them to his Bedminster golf club on Saturday:

The Daily Mail has coverage of the event, including photos:

President Donald Trump has met with a group of 180 bikers at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, reveling in the group’s loyal support as they bashed the press and recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

The group, made up of veterans and members of the New Jersey chapter of Bikers for Trump, descended on Trump National Golf Club on Saturday in a procession of chrome and roar of exhaust pipes.

Claiming nearly 100,000 members across the country, Bikers for Trump is a major grassroots organization that supports the Trump administration’s agenda.

Driving rain at first pushed a planned outdoor photo-op into the club’s ballroom, where the White House press pool was ushered in at around 3.30pm and greeted with noisy chants of ‘USA, USA!’ 

Here, Trump greets the bikers:

When it began raining, Trump opened his clubhouse to his guests:

This video summarises a happy, fun event which served as a generous ‘thank you’ for their continued support:

Afterwards, Trump tweeted:

Indeed they are Americans who love the Great Republic. May God continue to bless them — and President Trump.

Brendan Dilley is a Congressional candidate in Arizona and YourVoice™ America Co-host.

He receives intelligence messages from a source he keeps anonymous. Dilley’s Twitter account has many positive messages about life. His Periscopes have the intel data.

Someone on 8chan watches the videos then summarises the content. I’ve read this intel several times over the past few days and found it interesting enough to share. The source page is here.

Part 1 covers excerpted drops from January 17 through January 27, 2018.

Part 2 covers intel from January 29 through February 1.

Today’s post covers February 2 and February 3. I have covered these in the order the 8chan contributor did. Not everything is in precise chronological order, but that won’t matter when you read the content below. Excerpts follow (along with correction of a few typos), emphases mine.

My one caveat is that the penalty for sedition is probably not the death penalty, as the intel source says. Treason, however, does carry the death penalty. No matter, I’ve left the text as is. We’ll see.

The Nunes FISA memo was released on Friday, February 2. This has tremendous implications:

Dilley AM Periscope, 2.2.2018, Reading of the Memo

It’s one thing to have conjecture about treason. It’s one thing to report of treason. It’s another to have it come from the House Intelligence Committee, and this is the very first memo.
Who knew what was going on?
Yates, Comey, McCabe, obviously Steele, Preistrap, Strzok, Rosenstein…
This is the beginning—this points 100% that Obama knew. All Obama’s people, they all knew.
This makes Watergate look like a parking ticket.
McCabe knew, Strzok knew, Comey knew—they got Comey’s signatures on this stuff.
They’re all going down.
They have names of reporters who were propagating this fake news. The goal was to make sure Trump never became President.
They all knew.
And people wonder why there’s going to be Military Tribunals, why there’s 13,000 sealed indictments now, if you go look on Pacer.
They’re screwed.
The MSM is going to try to downplay it. It won’t work. It’s too late.
Hillary Clinton is mentioned in there. They’re all in there. Unbelievable.

After reading the memo and just prior to signing off, Dilley got some intel that he shared:
Sedition = death penalty.
RICO = life in prison
Which category is top tier?
That’s right, sedition, hanging time.
Sessions will talk to POTUS shortly.
Sessions can now unrecuse himself and kill Special Counsel and instruct Gowdy and NEP to start the ball rolling.
Storm is here, and it’s beautiful.

I’ll add; “Wow!”

On February 3, Dilley gave an update:

There are 9 total memos. Dilley believes only 4 will get released.
Memo #5 states…Obama’s Daily Briefings (top secret), which he passed on to Hillary, with daily updates on Trump’s campaign via the wiretap. So HRC got all the intel of BHO’s DB’s on the wiretaps of Trump along with OTHER intel updates. SEDITION!
The content of the wiretaps is amazing. They, the O admin, were passing top secret intel to people who had no security clearance to read it.
OIG report is a shocker. Still being compiled. No date when will be released. It goes back ‘really far’.
Gallo[w]s being built.
Uranium One section in Iran is beyond comprehension.
FYI, RICO cases have no statute of limitations. There will be at least one if not 2 very large cases.
Media is complic[i]t.
In the FOIA release of HRC emails last night proves the daily briefings …

sedition = death penalty
rico = life in prison
which category is top tier? that’s right, sedition…hanging time …

The chap on 8chan added a note:

(My note: earlier it was posted that Dilley’s source said Gowdy and [NE]P were ready to roll. Dilley actually spelled it out tonight and specifically stated NEP)

Someone on 8chan said that NEP could stand for National Economic Prosecutor, however, no one was able to find any such post. I also searched but couldn’t find it. We shall see.

The 8chan contributor returned to a fuller drop from Dilley’s source dated February 2, most of which follows:

FISA memo. MSM downplaying significance, trying to pretend one-off memo saying it only covers a small window of people.
Memo a product of nearly a million documents.
Memo product of hundreds of hours of testimony.
Memo is smoking gun.
Unequivocally states that Comey, McCabe, Susan Rice, Yates, Priestap, etc., used the Steele fake dossier, planted in Yahoo news, they then took the dossier and the Yahoo article and took it to the FISA court.
The FISA court gave them the warrant to tap the phones of the Trump campaign.
This is not the full scale of it.
Not easy to get FISA warrant. Very difficult. Have to be a foreign actor doing intelligence, they think you’re a spy, to get FISA warrant.
This means FBI conspired with Obama admin and HRC campaign to spy on US citizens who were running for office.
This is called a coup.
This is how you take over an entire country and usurp democratically elected government.
This is treason.
This is sedition.
This will get everyone who’s on that thing h[anged], that’s the penalty. No getting locked up for this.
You signed that thing, you signed your fate.
Obama had this information, he was complicit in this.
Don’t let the media fool you.
This is one of many—there are more memos coming out.
Backed up by hundreds of hours of testimony, millions of pages of documents, black and white.
This is history you’re seeing, the media is complicit and they know it.
The State Dept. has a memo coming out against them.
His one was the FBI/DOJ memo that showed they conspired.
You weaponize the Intelligence Community (IG) and your law enforcement community, the top, to fix an election.
This is something you would see in third world countries, not in the USA.
This is what you get shot for in front of a firing squad.
This is how you literally usurp 340 million people and the will of those people, and you plug in who you think should be the next president.
It’s way worse than many of you guys probably realize.
Get the word out, intel coming in a moment you won’t see ANYWHERE ELSE.
This is huge. Intel coming straight from the top (remember that when you’re voting) …
Memo #5, a nu[ke] about to drop on you guys, memo #5 states: “Obamas daily briefings [Top Secret], which he passed to Hillary, with daily intel updates on Trump’s campaign via the wiretap.” Along with other information.
This is called SEDITION.
This is what you would get h[anged] for in the USA.
This is the highest level of crime that you can actually perpetrate, aside from treason, which Obama will have an opportunity to face those crimes as well.
Especially when you guys find out about the weapons and everything else.
But we’ll stick to the topic at hand.
This dude was literally, illegally sp[ying] on a candidate for the Presidency of the United States
They took that information that they were spying on him about.
And passed it to another candidate in that race.
Even if they believed their nonsensical lie that they thought President (Candidate) Trump was actually a Russian spy, well, that whole narrative goes out the window when the next memo comes out and shows they were passing information to that political candidates opponent.
Now you’re done. Dead in the water.
Now you have broken so many laws that it’s not even funny.
This is why Obama lawyered up, why McCabe lawyered up, why Comey lawyered up, they’re all lawyering up.

It seems Dilley’s source is referring to the Grassley memo from the Senate, a post about which will follow.

The next drop from February 2 went over the above material but in slightly more detail. Dilley’s source also said that Senator John McCain (R-Arizona and presidential candidate in 2008) is in trouble:

Dilley Intel Drop, 2.2.18 PM, via Facebook PART 2

The content of the wiretap is amazing. Can only share this one portion, not cleared to do the rest yet.
Touches on people without clearance involved and being shown top secret intel.
They were passing along the most sensitive intelligence that you can receive in government and they were allowing average Joes with no security clearance to read it.
This other part is really bad. Cannot read it yet (aroused anger) but it will give you the most respect for the President of the United States.
Inspector General (IG) Report. Unbelievable, it’s going to take a while, not confirmed when it will be released, but it’s a shocker. Gallows being built. Uranium One section in Iran stuff is beyond comprehension. This is what source telling Dilley.
It goes back really far.
As said before, you will be facing/observing is going to be military tribunals for those at the top, because treason and sedition are punishable by death, and that is not to be tried in a normal, everyday courtroom.
That is to be tried in a military courtroom.
However, also mentioned 13,600 sealed indictments now, of which we don’t know ho[w] many people that actually is.
There will be multiple RICO cases.
Why is that significant?
Fun fact about a RICO case: there is no statute of limitations.
So if you broke the law, part of organized crime, back in 1975, and the evidence is found in 2018, you’re getting charged.
You can’t out run a RICO case.
In a RICO case, you can be sentenced, maybe not to death, but life imprisonment.
We’re going to have a really big RICO case. Probably two of the[m], maybe more.
This is organized crime.
Media is complicit.
[Dilley covered some information specific to the AZ Dist 8 Congressional race he’s in.]
McCain has got major problems.
There’s a reason he’s not be in public in two months.
Five of the memos you won’t ever get (raw intelligence), and you won’t really need them.
The four you will get will be the breakdown of this whole mess. These will suffice …
Don’t let anyone tell you that that memo that came out today wasn’t significant. You’ve got to start paying attention
They have evidence that, not only did they weaponize the IC, they also weaponized the Judicial Branch. They weaponized judges, just so we’re clear. And there’s actual evidence.
That’s way they (Dems/MSM/GOPe) are trying to downplay this. They are freaking out.
This is how you end up with a banana republic.
Been saying for nine months, the only way to save this country is with law and order, restore law and order.
The rule of law must be established and respected or your country will fall apart.

The 8chan contributor ended his post with this:

[There was a Dilley Periscope that aired just prior to this that I didn’t listen to, but I was told by a friend that this podcast covered it all.]

Dilley made a Periscope before the FISA memo was published on February 2. A few points concern the public mistakenly becoming emotionally involved with certain personalities they deem to be good guys. Dilley’s source says it is not a good idea to do this, because we might end up being disappointed when the truth emerges.

Before I go into the pre-FISA memo drop, on January 23, the intel source advised — and this is well worth keeping in mind:

Get away from Paradigm on who is “Good vs Bad”… find out who can get leveraged.

I read a lot of online questions elsewhere about ‘black hats’ and ‘white hats’. There are some of both hats that we have surmised from the outset. However, there are a lot of ‘grey hats’, too: people who agree to be leveraged to save their families from harm or to preserve their reputations. Washington DC is not an environment for ‘good’ and ‘bad’ in terms of a moral compass. People work there because they are ambitious or because they have connections. A lot of people in DC can be compromised. Others switch sides when money or a better position comes along. For the most part, they are not like the rest of us. DC has a dirty atmosphere, a stench, about it. Many years ago, I spent a week there, met many people just out of university who worked there, and I hated it. The only nice part about my holiday visit was meeting up with a former classmate of mine. I’m not sure he was cut out for that atmosphere, either. That was the last time I ever heard from him, so I don’t know what happened.

Now onto the intel source’s advice from February 2, before the FISA memo was made public:

“#HappyMemoDay w/Congresional Candidate Brenden Dilley”
https:// twitter.com/Hublife/status/959450833850064897
(Part 1)

Summary: Late to this party. Some Anons have dropped later FB streams. No new INTEL in this older post, just a lot of review and insight. IMHO, End is some valuable insight for Q followers …

The left has played directly into Trump’s hands AGAIN!
Trump “lets this build” & “CREATES EVENTS” (Must-See TV)
Americans – “It’s not about politics anymore” “We want the truth” “enough is enough”
The (Deep State) Objective was to “change the narrative” the other with the train station, but that only lasted only for a few hours because they weren’t successful.
About Trey Gowdy and Christopher Wray: This isn’t “Days of Our Lives” don’t get caught up or emotionally invested in characters in this movie. The only person you should be watching is POTUS.
(Dilley personally believes) Trey Gowdy has very important role in all of this LATER, and that’s why he stepped down.
But once you started getting emotionally attached to people in this story, you start having a hard time accepting new information or even accepting THE TRUTH
This is one of the risks of getting emotionally vested (mockingly – “But I liked him :(“)
Let the information come to you and then let the truth “rise to the top” and who gives a damn about personality.
“THIS IS WHY THE LEFT IS SCREWED UP (in the head) RIGHT NOW”
Think about how emotionally invested they became in Obama.
I don’t think the LEFT doesn’t want the truth. They just don’t know what to do with that information.
If you find out that the character you’ve elevated in your household is a treasonous scumbag, what does that mean about you? (self-identity loss)
You do this with actors/athletes as well – stop
It’s important that everybody be really patient …
Reviewed the previous drop that FBI/CIA being completely broken up and “Done”
FBI will be rebranded as something totally different because of how pervasive he corruption is
CIA has quietly been absorbed as part or underneath the NSA
Part of what’s going on even if you go back to the “Snowden stuff”, the CIA didn’t like the threat that the NSA Posed – technologically, financially, & influentially. This is part of what went with the Snowden situation.
Reiterates Bill Binney is a hero,
Snowden is CIA, went to NSA, tried to bring them down for what they were doing, back and forth.
Dilley has to continue reiterating “I am not Q. Just a guy who likes to problem-solve & people like to talk to me”
Periscope keeps asking who is ‘good’ vs ‘bad’, Brenden Dilley responds “it’s not that simple”
John Brennan is “awful”. He droned American Citizens illegally.
He has a major problem & a lot of dirt on him.
Periscope asks ‘Why are all these corrupt people still working?’
Dilley responds: “You don’t really know anything.”
“When you see Strzok or Page working at the FBI, what if you care that he’s cleaning the latrine?”
One of the most effective ways, until you’re ready to execute your plan, to keep from being attacked, is allowing your enemy to believe that they’re safe. So you keep them under your thumb wherever they’re working.
All the misdirection is done to keep people safe. There’s people whose lives are on the line with this entire deal. Operators who you will never know have their lives on the line doing this.
The value of disinformation is in keeping people safe.
The White Hats lie to keep people safe. The black hats like to try to cause chaos. Unfortunately you have to use deception, that’s the name of intelligence. Keeps people safe and off of the trail of where your interests actually are.

The 8chan contributor continued a summary of the Periscope in a second comment, wherein Dilley explained his hesitance to release some of the intel he received late last year:

“#HappyMemoDay w/Congresional Candidate Brenden Dilley”
https:// twitter.com/Hublife/status/959450833850064897
(Part 2)

You’ve got to be okay with the fact that you’re going to be lied to by people. No choice.
You’re going to be lied to by good ppl. Dilley acknowledges that they lie to him.
“I had to willfully enter into this situation knowing looking I could look like a collossal idiot because they might use me for disinformation. I had to consider that – that they might use me. Cause I had a brand & a certain level of credibility that I was afraid to put on the line with this stuff which is why I kept a lot of -“
I kept a LOT of information in November and December back
An average Joe would’ve probably released everything, but when you have a public brand like Dilley – life coach, talk show host, congressional candidate, it’s risky because you could end up with egg all over your face and ruin everything that you’ve tried your whole life to build.
“Part of the anxiety of all of this is that they might use me for disinformation to keep people safe, but it might end up destroying my credibility which is something I obviously don’t wanna do – I’ve worked very hard to be someone that people could trust and believe in” …
At the end, Dilley took the risk to do this because he had faith in his critical thinking to discern intel from disinfo.
I believe my source is legit, but what I believe in more than my source being legit, is my ability to recognize true information.”
“I know how to sniff out BS”
And I’m still trying to… no one is infallible.
If you don’t believe Dilley, look at the outcome over the last year…
The end of CNN, MSM, everyone’s credibility has been destroyed…
Even the early new media 2017 characters on the MAGA side who broke “HUGE” stories and then crumbled. Then a new character came into view because HE drops a huge story, everyone follows him, then HE crumbles. You’ve seen this over and over – the build-up and destruction of new characters on Twitter/Social media. That’s because none of these guys realized that they were being used.
They thought – oh “I’m going to keep dropping this intel because they’re going to ALWAYS gonna give me good information.” – WRONG

There is a final part to this Periscope, again, on the same topic, with an ending about Q and how valuable the Socratic method is to thinking and our personal makeup. It is much better to muse on questions and do research than to always be told something. What if we disagree with it? Isn’t it better to come up with answers based on evidence. That is where Q has done such a great job. Dilley explains that his source tried the same thing:

Dilley states that his source sometimes does the “cryptic Q messages” and Dilley replied “Nah Bro! You wanna deliver Q messages, go take that nonsense over to the Q boards and they can break it down, cause obviously, it’s good information, but I’m not that guy. Don’t give me the information that way.
Q Drops/Socratic method is very effective way of educating people.
Once the slow drip of breadcrumbs start to make sense, it’s an effective way of penetrating the brainwashing.
Once you’ve breadcrumbed people with logic, it can break through the emotional brainwashing. It works, it’s smart.

Tomorrow’s post has the last of the intel from Dilley’s source thus far, from Monday, February 5.

2018 might well end up being the most historic year — or one of them — in recent American history.

We need to prepare ourselves for it, because Big Media won’t be reporting on it fully.

Currently, the US government is shut down. That has happened before. However, a serious dynamic lies behind this particular one.

Before I go there, this is the latest status of the shutdown:

Procedurally, this is what is lies behind the shutdown:

Now to the deeper side of the story. Roger Simon of PJ Media explains the animosity in the American capital in his January 20, 2018, article pithily titled, ‘Washington: City of Hate’. Excerpts follow, emphases mine:

You wouldn’t know these were boom times with the stock market at all-time highs and unemployment near all-time lows if you were in the nation’s capital.

Washington, D.C., is a city of hate.

When you visit, it appears no one can stand each other. The two political sides are at each other’s throats so constantly it’s hard to imagine they sleep. Maybe they don’t. And then there are the sides within the sides, always ready for more gnashing of teeth, mutual hostility, and endless contempt.

Hence, the shutdown, one battle in the ongoing political war between the Democrats and the Republicans.

For over a year, Democrats and Republican Never-Trumpers have been pushing the Russia dossier. The Mueller investigation is ongoing, yet, after all this time, no charges have been brought against President Donald Trump.

The Mueller investigation might come to an end soon. A four-page memo by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is based on classified information gathered over the past several months which says that an incredible amount of surveillance of not only Trump but also ordinary Americans has been going on:

Yes, after more than a year of “Russia, Russia, Russia” (translation: I hate you. I hate you, I hate you.), it’s all coming down — or may be coming down — to a memo to the House Intelligence Committee.

Only we’re not supposed to see it — that and all the attendant documents, emails and texts that prove or disprove its contents.

Was a forged document by a sleazy coterie of wretched political attack dogs actually used by our government to justify spying on U.S. citizens and upending a presidential campaign? Inquiring — or normal human — minds should want know.

‘We’re not supposed to see it’. That is the Democrat perspective. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California), also on the House Intelligence Committee, spoke with CNN on January 21. He does not think that the American public will understand. Schiff is saying that because he wants to protect his political party and the players in this surveillance. Schiff does not like President Trump. Nor does he appreciate the electorate. He is telling Americans — nicely — that they are stupid:

The Conservative Treehouse helpfully provided a partial transcript.

Schiff explains more about the memo:

It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge they’ve not even read. So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out.

The only Republicans asking for the memo’s release are those who have seen it. Several of those who have wrote to Nunes to ask that it go through the official 19+-day process to open it up to the public.

Note that Schiff does not mention the Democrats outside the House Intelligence Committee do not want to even see the memo. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) speaks in the video below:

Then, Schiff adopts the standard Dem talking point saying that everyone clamouring for the memo’s release on Twitter is a Russian bot:

Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause, once again, with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Julian Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hashtag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this.

Schiff calls the memo ‘spin’, an attack on the FBI in order to get Mueller’s investigation to stop:

… the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is. The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a fulsome attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the Bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.

False. Those who have written to the committee have asked for ‘ancillary information’ to also be released. The Washington Examiner has an article about the letter and, as of January 20, 65 legislators have signed it:

The Examiner explained what release involves, beginning with a quote from Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio):

“Here is the process: Chairman [Devin] Nunes in the Intelligence Committee in the House he can he bring the committee back together. They can have a vote. If the majority of the committee votes to release these documents, the executive branch gets a certain amount of time to review them. If the executive branch gives the thumbs up they go public,” he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “This could happen real quick. Chairman Nunes is committed to getting this information to the public.

Rep. Mark Meadows, asked House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to authorize a vote on releasing the memo, and Ryan chose to defer to Nunes for the decision, Politico reported.

Both Jordan and Meadows, top members of the conservative Freedom Caucus, signed onto the Gaetz’s letter.

Members have been blocked from discussing the memo in detail due to a waiver they signed, according to The Hill. They have described it as being supported by classified documents and interviews that most lawmakers have not been allowed to see — putting knowledge of its veracity in doubt.

Gaetz, during an appearance on Fox News on Friday, went further with his assertions about the memo, saying the special counsel investigation into Russian interference and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin is “built on a false premise.” Gaetz has previously called for the removal of special counsel Robert Mueller.

So far, no vote has taken place.

For those empathetic to Democrats, over the weekend, former special prosecutor and practising attorney Joe diGenova gave an interview to Ginni Thomas of the Daily Caller News Foundation about what lies behind this surveillance and the dossier. He explains everything simply and clearly. This is a half hour well spent, because this will be in the news one way or another this year. People need to be prepared for it:

The information in a summary of the interview on The Daily Caller site points back to Roger Simon’s premise (top of this post) regarding the hate on both sides of the political aisle. When more information is made known, it is going to blow the doors off of Washington:

Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, connects the dots on former Obama administration Justice Department and FBI officials who may have “violated the law, perhaps committed crimes” to politicize law enforcement and surveillance against political opponents.

He says former FBI Director James Comey conducted a fake criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they “followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, with no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants. That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.”

DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants. Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.”

Please read and think about this seriously.

Remember: Donald Trump was not supposed to win! Hence the hate!

Tomorrow: the 16-year plan to bring down America

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump left the White House for Mar a Lago on Friday, December 22, 2017.

Earlier that day:

Crowds welcomed him upon his arrival in Florida:

On December 24, the Trumps fielded telephone calls from American children eager for the arrival of Father Christmas. The Daily Mail has a report with spectacular photos:

… the first couple surprised kids who had called in to NORAD to find out where Santa Claus is.

The president and first lady were patched in to a handful of NORAD’s expected 150,000 Christmas Eve calls from the living room at Mar-a-Lago where the Trumps are celebrating their first Christmas in office.

‘What would you like more than anything?’ Trump was overheard asking a child named Casper from Virginia as members of the media briefly listened in.

Reporters were unable to hear Casper’s response, but the president gave the request away in his answer.

‘Building blocks. That’s what I’ve always liked too,’ said the president, who was a successful real estate developer before jumping into politics. ‘I always loved building blocks,’ Trump continued.

‘Well, I predict Santa will bring you building blocks. So many you won’t be able to use them all,’ said the president, using his trademark bombastic language.

Speaking to another child, Trump was impressed by the boy’s Santa request.

‘So you want your grandma to get out of the hospital?’ Trump said. ‘That’s what your wish is?’

‘That’s great,’ the president continued. ‘That’s better than asking for some toy or something, that’s better right?’

He then assured the young boy that grandma would be alright.

‘So your grandma’s gonna be good, OK? She’s gonna be good,’ the president said.

At another moment he told a child, ‘When you’re in Washington, you’ll come and see me.’

In total, the president chatted with 11 kids, while the first lady talked to ten.

This video — trending at No. 27 on YouTube on December 28 — has the conversations:

Trump held a teleconference with various branches of the military to send Christmas greetings:

The US Navy and the crew of the USS Sampson tweeted their appreciation.

The military sent some exceptional tweets this year. I especially liked the Navy’s video. Open in new tab, if necessary:

Trump tweeted another seasonal message later on Christmas Eve:

His friend in Israel sent customary Christmas greetings to the American people. This year, however, is a special one for Benjamin Netanyahu:

The president and Mrs Trump attended the 10:30 p.m. service at the Episcopal church they go to, Bethesda-by-the-Sea.

The Palm Beach Post reported:

Bethesda-by-the-Sea is just under a five-minute drive up the Atlantic Ocean from the president’s Mar-a-Lago Club. The historic sanctuary — it is the oldest Protestant church in the region — has played a major role in the first family’s lives: The president and first lady married there in 2005. Their son, Barron, was christened there the following year. And the couple, occasionally joined by other family members, have attended Christmas Eve and Easter services there.

When Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie Abe, visited Trump at Mar-a-Lago in April, first lady Melania Trump took Mrs. Abe to Bethesda-by-the-Sea. “Proud to share part of my family history with Mrs. Abe at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea where @POTUS & I were married, where we celebrate and we pray,” the first lady said in a post on her @FLOTUS Instagram account accompanied by a photo of the church’s garden.

Security was tight:

Since his election, the president and first lady enter Bethesda-by-the-Sea from the south side of the building, a side entrance that allows more direct access to the seats set aside for them toward the front of the church.

The service was not on Trump’s schedule released to the media, and church officials have declined in the past to confirm whether Trump would attend.

But regular attendees are becoming familiar with the security practices put in place ahead of Trump’s arrival: Worshippers are ushered through metal detectors. Women’s purses are searched. Men in dark suits with earpieces walk the line of parishioners waiting to enter the 500-person capacity sanctuary.

Once inside:

The church was standing room only, but the Palm Beach Post article stated that a few people in the congregation managed to make contact with Trump:

During the greeting, several people gathered around the president to shake his hand. As Communion was offered, people who lined up next to Trump — who was seated on the center aisle — paused to say, “Merry Christmas,” offer words of encouragement or, as one woman did, mouth, “Thank you.”

The Gateway Pundit had a great write up with videos and tweets that I’ve used here, including one of the service. The article says that the choir’s version of Silent Night is ‘hauntingly beautiful’:

I won’t include any of the sermon, as it was the usual Social Justice Warrior material we have come to expect from a once-great denomination.

On December 25, Mrs Trump released a selfie:

Trump tweeted a brief video of the White House — along with a special greeting:

The Palm Beach Post reported:

“Melania and I are delighted to wish America and the entire world a very Merry Christmas,” Trump says in the video. 

Trump also quotes a verse from the bible in the book of Isaiah, noting what the celebration of Christmas is about.

Melania speaks about celebrating our blessings as Americans and “prays for peace all over the world.”

Fox News had more:

… the president and first lady Melania Trump released a video message, with Mrs. Trump saying “at this time of year, we see the best of American and the soul of the American people.” President Trump added his own remarks, calling on Americans to “renew the bonds of love and good will between our citizens —and most importantly we celebrate the miracle of Christmas.”

“For Christians we remember the story of Jesus, Mary and Joseph that began more than 2,000 years ago. As the book of Isaiah tells us, for to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This good news is the greatest Christmas gift of all, the reason for our joy and the true source of our hope.”

Here is the YouTube version, which, even on December 28, is No. 8 in YouTube trends:

The same Fox News article also reported that Trump laid on a grand Christmas dinner for people often taken for granted:

… administration sources confirmed to Fox News that the president also provided and paid for hundreds of Christmas dinners served up to the U.S Secret Service agents and officers, military service members and Palm Beach County sheriff deputies who were working Christmas Day at Mar-a-Lago.

Described as a “Christmas feast,” served in the Mar-a-Lago ballroom, the buffet meal included a menu of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and dessert. The buffet was offered from the early afternoon into the evening, in an effort to cover two of the shifts for security personnel working the holiday.

Christmas is a one-day celebration for President Trump:

The Trumps are still at Mar a Lago. On December 27, the president visited firefighters and first responders in West Palm Beach:

Meanwhile, although the president has to be the most people-oriented and transparent for generations, Trump Derangement Syndrome continues unabated.

And I’m still getting Christmas card messages from across the pond denigrating a man who truly loves his country!

What on earth is wrong with people?

An 11-year-old boy had his dream fulfilled at the White House on Friday, September 15, 2017.

Shortly before his birthday, Frank wrote to President Donald Trump:

The lad’s penmanship needs work. Another thing is the crossed out signature. Why couldn’t his mother or father print out a fresh copy of the letter for him to sign? But those are small quibbles about a heart-warming story.

On Wednesday, September 13, press secretary Sarah Sanders announced that Frank would be visiting the White House:

I’d like to announce that Frank from Falls Church, Virginia, whose letter I read last month offering his services to mow the White House lawn, will be here on Friday. He’ll work with the grounds-keeping crew here at the White House and will help cut the grass in the Rose Garden.

The President is committed to keeping the American Dream alive for kids like Frank, and we’re all looking forward to having him here.

This was the scene last Friday:

Lefties went crazy, accusing the White House of using child labour. On Sanders’s tweet thread, one person said that Frank’s mowing the lawn was much better than what another little boy was doing. (How true. I pray that little boy is safe. I cannot imagine a parent consenting to that.)

Someone on The_Donald started a thread with this title:

Liberals think 11-year-olds are too young to volunteer to mow a lawn, but are mature enough to undergo sex-change treatment.

Yes! That said, I do wish people would stop calling lefties ‘liberals’. It legitimises them. If anything, they are the most illiberal people alive.

The_Donald’s thread has amusing mock CNN and PBS headlines for the story. Those posting to the thread recalled mowing the lawn as children. So do I. There were also enterprising pre-teens who would shovel people’s drives after a snowstorm for a small fee. That’s all changed. I understand from several Americans that boys haven’t done that for years.

Here are a few of the comments.

This one:

My cousin used to mow lawns for extra cash in high school.. then after high school he was like, “school is for losers” and just mowed lawns full time.. he now runs a lawn care business that employs dozens of people and he’s 25. wew.

The reply:

Friends[‘] kid did same thing, began at 10, hired his first crew at 14 – was worth a million before he was 21.

And this one:

If the same kid wanted to get pumped full of sex hormones, that’s progressive. But apparently he’s too young to choose to operate a push mower? I don’t get it.

The reply:

You “don’t get it” because you have a fully functioning brain… 🙂

In case you think I’m being hard on the Left, recall that Obama invited Clock Boy to the White House in 2015. The New York Times reported:

Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Texas boy who became a cause célèbre after he was detained and handcuffed for taking a homemade clock to school, visited the White House on Monday for its second astronomy night.

After Ahmed’s detention on Sept. 14, President Obama invited him to bring his clock to the White House. “Cool clock, Ahmed,” Mr. Obama said on Twitter, adding: “We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”

As the Daily Wire explains, Clock Boy is somewhat dubious. After going to the White House, he and his family moved to Qatar. Then they returned to Texas. In May 2017, CBS News reported:

A federal judge has dismissed a discrimination lawsuit brought by the family a Muslim student who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school that officials believed to be a bomb, saying the student’s attorneys failed to prove he was treated differently based on his race or religion.

Now he’s back in Qatar in secondary school. But, I digress.

Frank is a very different character. In fact, he wants to be a Navy SEAL when he grows up.

For now, though, he just wants to do his work well. In fact, he was concentrating so hard on mowing the Rose Garden lawn that he did not even notice President Trump approach him:

Frank’s nickname is FX (Francis Xavier?). Here’s the White House video. Frank’s father accompanied him:

The Daily Mail has a charming summary of Frank and his day:

The_Donald has another thread about Frank, sorry, FX. I particularly enjoyed the following exchange (and have substituted A and B for the posters’ names):

A: Loved watching this kid today. Lines weren’t perfect. That lawn mower weighs more than he does…then the freaking PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES walks up to him and he is like “sorry, got a job to do sir” and just keeps mowing.

Some presidents would have been annoyed to be ignored like that. Trump was beaming with pride. It’s that kind of work ethic that he absolutely loves. Which is why he’d rather rub shoulders with construction workers and cab drivers and bricklayers than the putzes he usually has to deal with to keep his brand afloat in the past.

I’m telling you, he was just admiring this kid for his focus on the job. This is a good kid. He may never be rich or famous or any of those things, but he will always have a job because he is willing to work and commit to the work.

It’s Americans like this that built this country. Not the snobs that run it.

B: Best internship ever!

Although if Trump had pulled a $100 from his wallet, given it to him, and ruffled Frank’s hair, it would have been totally awesome.

A: Frank would have given it back I think. Kid is on a mission.

After Frank helped make lawns great again …

… he got a great reward …

… and was the subject of at least one news show that night:

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Sarah Sanders’s father, came up with a great suggestion:

Along with millions of Americans, I wish Frank ‘FX’ Giaccio a lifetime of happiness and success. His parents are doing a great job of raising an all-American boy. I wish the world had more people like them.

On Tuesday, July 11, 2017, after the G20 and before President Donald Trump’s trip to Paris for Bastille Day, the Trump administration met with a group of Evangelical pastors who are members of the Office of Public Liaison.

Later, they were invited into the Oval Office to meet President Trump. Among them were Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne of Revival Ministries International and his wife Adonica.

The group prayed over the president.

Pastor Howard-Browne has got to know Trump over the past year or so, and he is also well acquainted with certain American politicians.

The following day, he received shocking news from a Congressman who has been in office since 1996. The two met privately for three hours that night.

The Congressman revealed to Howard-Browne that ‘news on the Hill’ is that a bi-partisan plot to ‘immobilise’ Trump is in the making.

And, there have been rumblings in the media that this is true. Here is a video of CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewing John Brennan, Former Director, Central Intelligence Agency and James Clapper, Former Director of National Intelligence. The three appeared together recently at the Aspen (Colorado) Security Forum:

An accompanying article on Zero Hedge says that Brennan told Blitzer (emphases mine):

if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president[‘s] orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch …

“That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

Meanwhile, Pastor Howard-Browne relayed to his congregation what the Congressman told him. You can see what he said in this clip from Infowars which also features an interview with him that aired on Wednesday, July 26:

Howard-Browne told CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network, founded by the Rev Pat Robertson) of the story but they were afraid to run with it.

Howard-Browne is originally from South Africa and became a naturalised American citizen several years ago. He believes it is his civic duty to speak out and ask for people to support Trump, especially via prayer.

Howard-Browne told Jones that if he took no action, he would feel obliged to renounce his American citizenship!

If only more Americans felt that way!

On Monday, July 24, Infowars posted an article about the pastor’s conversation with the congressman:

He said there is a plot on Capitol Hill to take the president out, I said you mean by impeachment or by indictment – he said no, to take him out, he will be removed suddenly from office,” said Howard-Browne, before adding, “you can read between the lines”.

Howard-Browne said the congressman used the word ‘immobilised’.

Also:

The Congressman, who the pastor revealed had been in office since 1996, went on to tell Howard-Browne “there’s nothing we can do to stop it.”

Howard-Browne said there is always something we can do to stop it and started a two-week prayer vigil at his church. He said there are people there praying for Trump, day and night.

He urged all Americans to pray for the president from the privacy of their own homes — and to let people know about the attempted coup.

Howard-Browne understands, that, if it occurs, this removal from office, would take place within the next several weeks, no later than September.

Pastor Howard-Browne has informed the appropriate authorities.

Let’s get praying, folks. We are not out of the woods yet. There are more battles to be fought before Trump can settle comfortably into the White House.
