Yeah, Trump is no Ronaldus Magnus, but he is the most conservative President since him. I think maybe even he might have lost it a bit if exposed to todays' Democrat party. Today the impeachment against him will finally implode, slowly, of course.

If you're looking for a Reagan speech, here's a good one. It starts a little slow, but gets interesting quickly. It amazes me how much of what he said over 50 years ago needs to be said today

There are three truths I can readily admit to:

1) Ronald Reagan was the last President I voted for... I have voted against someone in every election since.

2) Donald Trump has done more to fulfill his campaign promises than any other President in my lifetime has, and

3) Looking at the economy, unemployment, hell look at your own 401k, you cannot argue with the financial health of this country.

Donald Trump is no Ronald Reagan (not even close) but once you get past the simpering snowflakes, one can not argue with bottom line results.

I've watched that speech a few times. It should be shown is school but it tells the truth. The dems certainly don't want that.

"Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.” - Ronald Reagan. "A Time for Choosing", 27th October, 1964.

EDIT: to add, thanks for sharing that EK

...and don't forget as Nancy Pelosi was signing the articles of impeachment with gold engraved pens and passing them out as souvenirs - - the President was signing a US$200B deal with China with a $1.99 Sharpie...

How does that old adage go: "Actions speak louder than words."

wait for it... wait for it... and the House Democrats open with a letter to Trumps lead attorney:

“In preparation for the trial of Donald J. Trump before the Senate, we write to notify you that evidence received by the House of Representatives during its impeachment inquiry indicates that you are a material witness to charges in both Articles of Impeachment for which President Trump now faces trial,”

...

“You must disclose all facts and information as to which you have first-hand knowledge that will be at issue in connection with evidence you present or arguments you make in your role as the President’s legal advocate so that the Senate and Chief Justice can be apprised of any potential ethical issues, conflicts or biases,”


Really? Clearly they don't get "Executive Privilege", but surely they have watched enough episodes of Perry Mason and Matlock to get "Attorney-Client Privilege"?

I think shiftys opening where he was talking about a fair trial... As he was standing there explaining a fair trial, all the while proving just how UNFAIR the house investigation was... There was no crime, no law broken, no misdemeanor... Case dismissed...

Sekulo and Siclion kicked their butts today. I heard earlier today that buried in the house impeachment papers was the wording to remove the President's name from the November ballot. What??? Talk about election interference. How evil...

But yet the left is saying the president has to be removed because he plans to cheat in the 2020 election ?

I'm quite impressed with the President's restraint, as thinned skinned as he appears to be, (or maybe as thinned skinned as the media characterizes him) he has handled this non stop 2 year assault on his personal character, not to mention his family and loved ones incredibly well. Better than I thought he would. I've never in my 50 years, seen this type of hatred for a major figure, let alone a President, accepted as ordinary.
Of course he's no Reagan...Ideologically..Personally..or Politically. BUT, he is the man for our time. As long as he keeps pushing back on Democrats, undoing everything they have done for the last 50 years he will have the Republics (if We can keep it)hearts and votes.
....I mean hell, I can barely hold it together thinking about Adam Schiff... I get pissed thinking about him standing before the House reading his lying version of the President's Ukrainian phone call...I seeth when I think about him lying about Lev Parnas...How must Trump feel? If you ask me, the President has shown that he's very capable of showing restraint.
I hope he takes some action against these rats ...Nadler..Schiff...Pelosi...the whole vessle full of the Central Planning Big Government Democrat Wretched Rats...
I'm not a really a Bucket List type guy, but if I were a Bucket List type guy, up towards the top of that list would be:
See Hillary Clinton and corrupt Rat Democrat (mostly) Politicians held accountable for thier lives of crime.
Trump is the only one who could help me achieve this lofty goal, though it is probably unattainable. ;)

FROM: Giddy Up – IMF Outlines “Global” Danger From Trade War With President Trump…

Giddy Up – IMF Outlines “Global” Danger From Trade War With President Trump…

An article from Reuters discussing the position of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is interesting. Essentially the IMF is warning that “global economies” will contract by $455 billion next year due to the ongoing trade conflict between the U.S., China, the EU and to a lesser extent, Japan. Yes Alice, there are hundreds of billions at stake.

There’s really no reason to doubt the amount estimated, though I think it’s on the short side, but the yearly value seems in line. I have no doubt President Trump will cost the “Global Economy” $455 billion…. because that money will be transferring back to the America First economy. That’s what happens as MAGAnomics reverses the IMF trade (wealth distribution) model.

The IMF is correct in part (the effect), incorrect in part (the cause), and mostly hypocritical. The Euro-minded IMF rails against the high value of the U.S. dollar, but simultaneously ignores the motives behind the intentional devaluation of currencies that are pegged against the dollar.

  • WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The International Monetary Fund said on Wednesday the U.S. dollar was overvalued by 6% to 12%, based on near-term economic fundamentals, while the euro, the Japanese yen and China’s yuan were seen as broadly in line with fundamentals.
  • The IMF has been at odds with U.S. President Donald Trump over his use of tariffs to resolve trade imbalances, but its assessment that the dollar is overvalued is likely to give Trump more fodder for his frequent complaints that dollar strength is hampering U.S. exports.
  • Trump has railed against European and Chinese policies that lead to what he calls a devaluation of the euro and other currencies against the dollar.

    […]
  • The Fund – which has warned that the U.S.-China trade war could cost the global economy about $455 billion next year – said recent trade policy actions were weighing on global trade flows, eroding confidence, and disrupting investment. But they had done nothing to reverse external imbalances thus far.
China and the EU have devalued their currency in an effort to block the impacts from President Trump and the ‘America First’ trade policy. Because those currencies are pegged against the dollar, the resulting effect is a rising dollar value. In essence, the globalist IMF is now blaming President Trump for having a strong economy that forces international competition to devalue their currency.

That’s the stupid hypocrisy of global banking outlooks. They make a decision to devalue their currency, which causes the dollar value to rise, and then turn around and blame the U.S. dollar for being overvalued.

The root cause of the devaluation is unaddressed in their argument. The EU and China are trying to retain their global manufacturing position and offset the impact of President Trump’s tariffs by lowering the end value of their exports.

In the bigger picture this is why President Trump is the most transformative economic President in the last 75 years. The post-WWII Marshall Plan was set up to allow Europe and Asia to place tariffs on exported American industrial products. Those tariffs were used by the EU and Japan to rebuild their infrastructure after a devastating war. However, there was never a built in mechanism to end the tariffs…. until President Trump came along and said: “it’s over”!

After about 20 years (+/-), say 1970 to be fair, the EU and Japan received enough money to rebuild. But instead of ending the one-way payment system, Asia and the EU sought to keep going and build their economies larger than the U.S. Additionally, the U.S. was carrying the cost of protecting the EU (via NATO) and Japan with our military. The EU and Japan didn’t need to spend a dime on defense because the U.S. essentially took over that role. But that military role, just like the tariffs, never ended. Again, until Trump.

The U.S. economy was the host for around 50 years of parasitic wealth exfiltration, or as most would say “distribution”. (Note I use the term exfiltration because it better highlights that American citizens paid higher prices for stuff, and paid higher taxes within the overall economic scheme, than was needed.)

President Trump is the first and only president who said: “enough”, and prior politicians who didn’t stop the process were “stupid” etc. etc. Obviously, he is 100% correct.
For the past 30 years the U.S. was a sucker to keep letting the process remain in place while we lost our manufacturing base to overseas incentives. The investment process from Wall Street (removal of Glass-Stegal) only made the process much more severe and faster. Wall Street was now investing in companies whose best bet (higher profit return) was to pour money overseas. This process created the “Rust Belt”, and damn near destroyed the aggregate manufacturing industry.

Fast forward to 2017 through today, and President Trump is now engaged in a massive and multidimensional effort to re-balance the entire global wealth dynamic. By putting tariffs on foreign imports he has counterbalanced the never-ending Marshal Plan trade program and demanded renegotiation(s). Trump’s goal is reciprocity; however, the EU and Asia, specifically China, don’t want to give up a decades-long multi-generational advantage. This is part of the fight.

One could argue that China’s rise happened inside this period, and as a consequence they have no comprehension of an economic history without the institutional advantages. They’ve never competed with the U.S. under any terms of equivelence or fairness; they’ve only ever known the advantages. Combine that with the Chinese communist mindset and you get the extreme severity of their position.

So yeah, there’s going to be pain – for them; massive economic pain – as the process of reestablishing a fair trading system is rebuilt. This dynamic is the essence of reciprocity that benefits Main Street USA. Unfortunately, putting ‘America First’ is now also against the interests of the multinationals on Wall Street; so President Trump has to fight adverse economic opponents on multiple fronts…. and their purchased mercenary army we know as DC politicians.

No-one, ever, could take on all these interests. Think about it… The EU, Asia, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, China, Russia, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Iran, U.S. Congress, Democrats, U.S. Senate, Wall Street, the Big Club, Lobbyists, Hollywood, Corporate Media (foreign and domestic), and the ankle-biters in Never Trump…. All of these financial interests are aligned against Main Street USA and against President Trump.

Name one individual who could take them on simultaneously and still be winning, bigly.
They say he’s one man. They say they have him outnumbered. Yet somehow, as unreal as it seems, he’s the one who appears to have them surrounded.

Incredible.

Lord knows we can’t spare this man.

He fights!

Wow!!! Good info, but damn I'm getting dizzy! I've been saying that the U.S was stealing my/our money for many decades and sending it to countries that were abusing that good natured giving.
Yes they did include removing Trump from the 2020 ballot in the articles of impeachment.

If what he has to say is so important, why didn't the House Dems subpoena him? Now they claim he has critical information- how did they impeach without it?
They have no case- nothing was withheld- the lethal military aid (that Obama never gave) was delivered on 12 Sep, before the fiscal year-mandated deadline of 30 Sep. That is how Gov spends it's money, programmed throughout the fiscal year

I spent 3 hours watching the OANN presentation (t, t, t, too much time on my hands). While not very surprising, very detailed, informative and more than a little upsetting. I haven't been a fan of Googliani from some of his NY moves but he puts it together very well and knows his sh!t. I was gratified to visit my Dad this afternoon and noticed some blonde chick from the right explaining some of those very details in the 'peachy hearing.

Haven't heard what Bolton has to say. As a reputed hot-head, war monger and now a disgruntled, fired employee looking to cash in on a book deal, he better have something more to say than the same old hearsay and manipulation of 1/2 truths we've been shown to date... but I can't imagine it's anything but more TDS sh!t at this point. I honestly can't even believe I'm reading headlines of the left patting each other on the back, in light of the yuuuge amounts of nothing presented so far. It's like the Emperor Wears No Clothes... but in real life.

Somebody needs to go to jail... a lot of somebody's really and none of them are on the right, so far.
