    Thanks for that. Confirms for me a similar decision I had early last year when I was dating a pretty thing from Manhattan whose recently passed father had been a surgeon there.

    Only problem was her father was a refugee in the late 1950s to Canada from Turkey and later got medically trained in Manhattan.

    I thought she was secular like so many others from Turkey and I, as a Christian thought she would respect my Orthodox faith. But she began showing her Muslim sympathies and I detected the usual arguments for Islam over Christianity.

    When I found out she preferred only ‘Halal’ food, that was too much for me so I stopped answering her phone calls while trying to figure out what to say. She called and left a nasty message about how I was “leading her on”. And then I knew I had made the right decision.

    Christians and Muslims simply do not mix.

    Many of the pastors have already appeared in Trump’s office in Manhattan before. He knows these people very well and has prayed with them on many occasions.

    Trump’s people are pros. They don’t put out an announcement without having everything confirmed.

    What happened is yesterday there were some social media facebook, twitter like discussions from some pastors who said they had been invited but who declined because they dod not want to be seen as endorsing Trump. But the 100 that were announced were not interviewed, only the apparently disgruntled ones who weren’t attending anyway.

    So the scumbags in the media jumped in and tried to make it look like Trump had overstated when in fact he had not. The 100 who are endorsing him are still attending but their names are going to be kept private for their security.

    The leftist press is scum. But too bad for them that the American people are now on to them more than ever before.

    Sounds like you’re swallowed the narrative of the media scum hook, line and sinker.

    Trump’s people are pros. They know the media is scum and seeks to attack them at every turn. Guaranteed when they sent out invitations they were told who would be endorsing and who would not be. So there announcement is genuine and sincere.

    Then the media found a couple of disgruntled pastors via social media who were invited but who declined to endorse so they were not going. The scumbag media then sent out reports that Trump lied about the endorsements and you’ve bought into that.

    Now, seeing the scumbag media poised for attack, the Trump people elect to keep the meeting private so that the pastors who are attending and endorsing won’t be harassed and targeted by having their names publicized.

    So the media gets whipped because the Trump people will still be able to announce the endorsements but without revealing the names. One of the pastors will likely vouch for the endorsements thereby putting an end to the expected narrative that the Trump people are lying about the endorsements.

    As conservatives and patriots sharpen their swords, they will ensure the scumbags in the media are frustrated and made to look foolish every day from now into the indefinite future. It’s so easy to set traps for the media A-holes.

    Bit concerned here that Donald is giving this moron more ratings points than he deserves.

    Journalism and broadcast journalism have attracted the dregs of subgrade intellectualism.

    When the old networks and print media finally go belly up, these cretins will try to pop up in the new thing and continue to spew forth their despicable, shallow, half-baked and false views on society.

    The new media when it emerges more should mature to the point that there will always be an ignore button and a like button so that viewers and readers are always in control of who gets promoted as their favored reporters.

    I have trouble imagining what line of work people such people as F. Chuck Todd should land in. Their dishonesty and bias is so thick, they seem lost and unrecoverable. They should not be anywhere near any form of reporting to the public but where could they be safely and productively placed? Park Ranger? Prison Guard?

    Any job profession would seem to be at risk of being tainted and damaged by these kinds of people.

    Where do you direct people whose ethics and views are so twisted and dishonest?

    I’m stumped.

    No, I meant T as in Trillion.

    I was in Dubai for many meetings. When you travel the world you get an eyeful and earful that you would never get with some slouch crap magazine like Forbes. Arabs know and are proud that their Prince is so wealthy.

    He’s probably worth half of the T’s he was about 3 years ago due to his own demolition of oil prices and the correlative value in gold.

    I know it’s hard to believe, for most Americans to believe, but all I can say is listen to Donald Trump and trust what he says about international finance and trade. He knows what we’re up against.

    When Trump says America is 3rd World, he’s not kidding or exaggerating.

    The rest of the world has gotten rich at our expense over the last 2 decades and those that have gotten rich all say that America is in decline. In other words, the magnanimity and generosity of the US is not appreciated. Our weakness and charity minded foreign policy including nation building and so forth have only engendered a disdain and disrespect for us. The recipients actually turn the charity on its head and claim to their people that it is reparations from America who stripped their resources and exploited them. See how that works?

    The wealthy of the world see us as stupid and in decline. The only reason they are not more vocal about it is because we are still a huge military power and they want to use our military as a mercenary force to their ends.

    Again listen to Trump, he’s telling the truth.

    And yes it was T not B. If you don’t believe it, that’s fine. But just listen to Trump and you will get the picture in time.

    Prince Alwaleed was known to be worth 27 T about 3 years ago, half of which was in gold.

    He’s the one that’s behind the attack on US domestic oil producers.

    The Saudis $6 extraction cost compared to $32 in the US enables the Saudis to prevail unless we take action to counter. Donald Trump will find a way because it’s much more than just oil. It’s also enormous quantities of natural gas that comes out with the oil and it’s also about US leadership in world trade.

    Freereign, did not read post #33?

    The Saudis are causing a flood to the US market by REFUSING TO CUT production and for refusing to influence OPEC to do the same.

    The US oil terminal storage infrastructure is filled to the brim with oil. If the Saudis had cut production, that would not be the case. And they refused to cut production in order to see the US system flooded by its own production.

    The comparative amounts of what the US is producing to the what the Saudis have produced are IRRELEVANT. It has nothing to do with the Saudis causing the US oil production to rise and exceed their volume to the US. That has nothing to do with it.

    The Saudis saw the US oil production increasing rapidly and they had a chance to cut their own and OPEC’s production to stop prices from collapsing. But they chose not to do that so that they could cripple the US oil production industry.

    They are responsible for the flood of oil in the US. You might say no, the US oil industry is responsible for the flood of oil. But US oil producers are working on US land, and the Saudis are trying to force their product in so that the US producers quit the field. The Saudis want to control the market. So they are the culprit. They are the cause for the flood of oil.

    The Saudis have a lot of control over OPEC. The Saudis have deliberately refused to CUT the production of oil in order to keep prices high. Hence, the price of oil has collapsed. The Saudis caused that.

    And the collapse in oil prices was by Saudi design for the sole purpose of crippling the emergent US Oil industry. That’s documented fact.

    What is needed now is a floor price to oil imports, either by tariff or by other means.

    The average cost of extracting a barrel of oil from the ground in Saudi Arabia is about $6.

    The average cost of extracting a barrel of oil from the ground in the US is about $32.

    A floor price of $40 to oil imports will allow the US oil industry to survive and will allow for domestic gasoline prices to hover about $1.65 which is great for the economy.

    She has achieved a notable level in filmmaking. What are needed now are new forms of syndicated distribution and marketing, likely via social media. Without that part of the industry, films like this won’t penetrate enough to make a difference.

    A profit has to be made to create funding for future projects. That means marketing and distribution are essential.

    However, the downside is that the popular culture seeks film subjects that allow for escape or for fun and excitement. This subject is a hard reality. Sorry, just telling it like it is. That means commercial marketing and distribution may never be adequate to attract enough viewers to make it profitable. That calls for alternative means to get the message out accompanied by metrics to assess efficacy.

    The documentary films made about the diabolical deeds of Kermit Gosnell (http://3801lancaster.com) were also very well-made (extremely so) and were viewed fairly broadly but they were not enough to move the ball to a goal of knocking out the abortion industry.

    The undercover films of Planned Parenthoods involvement in the harvesting and sale of baby body parts should have resulted in defunding PP, but so far nothing has been done.

    Perhaps President Trump or President Cruz will call for a Commission to study ways to come to grips with the evils of abortion and alternatives to abortion. Legislation is needed to address the problem, but it must be well-thought out and it must anticipate unintended consequences. For example, reforming policies regarding adoption may allow women to bring their babies into the world to infertile couples willing to pay for the blessing of having a child in their lives. Such couples are so distraught that they think nothing of paying $25,000, $40,000 for a healthy baby because they could easily pay more for fertility treatments which may produce nothing. But the unintended consequences of such policy reform would amount to an industry where babies are for sale and that thought is abhorrent. However, there are couple that travel the world over to find that baby for their lives. I know of woman that found her daughter in Kazakhstan and the price she paid was of no consequence to her because the blessing of having a child to love and nurture was paramount.

    This is an extremely tough nut to crack, but it must be done.

    > “You didn’t say anything about congress passing laws, you said you would advise POTUS to have banks restructure debt. He doesn’t have any such authority (and neither does congress).”

    The President and Congress have the authority to make laws together that gives them vast authorities limited only to what the Constitution enumerates. The Constitution allows Congress and the President to regulate its money and to tax directly and indirectly. They are authorized to make laws to fund O&G companies so that they survive for the public good. They can do this easily through long-term field contracts.

    Right now there is an oil war between Saudi Arabia and the United States. The Saudis have clearly stated their goal is to cripple the emergent US oil industry. Therefore, it is for the public good that the US oil industry has protection from attempts by outside foreign entities to cripple it.

    The same with the rest of your rant. One advises the President on what he should do and he then proposes to Congress what is to be done. If Congress doesn’t agree, it better have good reasons or else the voters will throw them out.

    How is the last paragraph ‘utter nonsense’? The Fed calls bonds back routinely and retires them. They created the money from nothing, they can take it back.

    In the case of US non-foreign debt, they can call a large series of bonds back valued in the trillions. It would demolish a good deal of the bubble bond market but no one cares because that bubble serves a very few.

    The extremely low yield on those bonds does not serve banks, insurance companies or pension funds very well. They simply do not have enough capital to stay afloat on those bond yields. They rely instead on the carry trade with channeling the NY Fed digitally created money to treasury bonds. Once that carry trade goes belly up, they will need to direct their efforts to traditional investments which is what Trump has in mind for them. They will eventually be happier, but first they will bitch and moan because traditional investments are not so easy as the carry trade gravy train.

    It is evident you are grasping at straws at some of the things that Trump can do to save the United States. Your argument is extremely weak and emotional. That indicates you are somehow affected and that your life may be turned upside down. The bad news for you is there are very few people that give a damn. You should exit what you are doing that is tied to the coming reforms and get into something else. If I was you, I would liquidate and work 24/7 on a new thing that is completely separate from the government bond market.

    Disagree with you on all three.

    Congress can pass laws that provide relief to O&G companies and that provide incentives for banks to restructure the debt of O&G companies. Nothing in the Constitution says they can’t do that.

    Putting a floor price on oil imports can be carried out in a number of ways. The historical way is to impose a tariff. It is entirely constitutional and is necessary to protect American industries from foreign dumping.

    Deleting the money created out of thin air by the Fed in exchange for a BBA is entirely legal and necessary. The Fed must call the bonds back that were bought by bond traders who used Fed notes to purchase them. The Fed then disposes of the bonds as unrecoverable. The bond traders and hedge funds will be upset but ... who cares other than them? They had a good run. Party’s over for them.

    From a recently pulled (zotted) thread, you wrote something I responded to. Here is is:

    > “Trump has certainly benefited from crony-capitalism.”

    I don’t see this and I’ve researched and studied it at length. We may be looking at the definition of crony-capitalism different. I define it as first order government to favored contractors facilitated by banking contacts.

    In my findings, I have not found him to have benefitted from any large government contractor enterprise. Most all of his wealth has derived from prime real estate deals that have executed on a very large scale. His wealth is private. He reminds me of Leo Linbeck Jr. in this regard.

    > “The question for voters is if he would govern that way or if his financial success through that route insulates him from future temptations.”

    Trump has already mentioned the carry trade and currency manipulators who are at the heart of crony-capitalism. They hate him as he plans to end their gravy train. In fact, a lot of the political establishment, the US Chamber of Commerce, K-Street and the NY Media which comprise most of the national news media want to see him destroyed. It does not seem at all to me that he would be in bed with the crony-capitalists when these forces are aligned against him.

    Trump is very old school. He’s actually earned a lot of his wealth that I can see. It’s also evident that he has street smarts and can talk to trades people as if he is one of them.

    He has evidently by his own admission been involved in buying favors for his real estate deals such as zoning permits, legislation that benefits his development projects, etc. But I do not see where he has taken large government grants or contracts that would mark a crony-capitalist deal.

    One strong indicator of a candidate who would support continuing a culture of crony-capitalism would be whether the establishment supports or endorses the candidate. I see no endorsement coming from establishment types for Donald Trump.

    This is exactly what the Saudis have been waiting for. And it looks like the Obama White House will hand it to them on a silver platter.

    If Donald Trump were President I would advise him to have banks restructure debt for the O & G Companies, put in a floor price for oil imported into the US, say between $35 and $40 per bbl, negotiate massive LNG deals with South Korea, other Asian nations, and Europe.

    With America exporting excess natural gas in liquid form (LNG) and exporting excess oil, the economy would be greatly boosted for decades to come, millions (no exaggeration) of well-paying secure and stable jobs would be created, and domestic gas prices could hover around $1.50 per gallon giving a further boost to the economy.

    I would also suggest to President Trump to ***delete*** electronically the treasury debt arising from domestic Fed monetization (foreign debt would continue to be serviced) which accounts now for more than 70% of the treasury debt IN EXCHANGE for a BBA, and to have the BBA budgets set on a glide path to save Social Security.

    Interest rates could then rise naturally so that savers, pension funds and shareholder bonds would all see a real return on capital.

    The downside would be the demolition of the carry trade in the bond markets, but no one would care much except hedge funds and bond traders. They’ve pigged out at the money trough for so long now that they are due for a downsizing. The benefit to society would be at the expense of these persons who make hundreds of millions every year virtually tax-free. I see nothing wrong in that.

    Young nube, Regan was hated hated hated in 1979, 1980.

    And he did not win because he was a conservative in 1980.

    He won because of the Iranian Hostage Crisis and was perceived to be a 1st class badass hardline son of a b*tch who was ready to start WWIII with the Soviets.

    And Jimmy Carter was perceived as a major embarrassment, causing democrats to stay home in droves.

    So Reagan slid in due to Carter’s incompetence and the first day Reagan took office, the hostages were freed because the Iranians *ssholes were scared out of their wits.

    It was later, about two years into his first term that the American public began to fall in love with Reagan’s conservatism and eloquence, Thus started the Reagan Revolution.

    Donald Trump will be feared, so feared that he will set the world agenda and later into his term, Americans will wake up to just how classy he is.

    You’re suggesting that Donald Trump kowtow to the scumbags in the media.

    Not going to happen.

    And if by fantasy he did, his ratings would slip into Pataki Land.

    Yes, his campaign announced an endorsement. And his people are not dummies, by any stretch. And they know there’s a bunch of scumbags in the press. So they know the scumbags are going to push any negative they find or can make up.

    Trump’s people announce a gathering of pastors that will endorse Trump for president. He’s met them before and they’ve agreed.

    So pretend for a moment you’re working with the scumbag press. What do you do to attack? You scour social media to see if there’s any hint of some disgruntled pastors. You find some, do a quick phone or text interview, and you print crap that sounds like the Trump team doesn’t have the endorsements when in fact they have plenty of endorsements. Propaganda is part of war.

    Uh...you’re wrong about Donald lacking grace. As long as one is not in his way, then they are ok. As soon as Perry dropped out. He was a ‘nice guy’. As soon as Walker fell out, he became a ‘good guy’. See how that works? So simple!

    It’s somewhat disturbing to see this turncoat appear so smug and confident. Either the money is so good that he puts on a convincing act, or he knows of plans for his group to cheat their way to grabbing power. I pray it’s the former but will prepare for the latter.

  • Donald Trump taps into deep Republican anger at government

    The anger is both a shield and defense against further hurt. The hurt originates from fraud and deception.

    But anger is only one facet of the overall profile of the electorate.

    With respect to Donald Trump, his message is liberating (from the stifling effects of PC) and uplifting (Americans can and must do better).

    If anger were the only reason to support Donald Trump, he would be so low in polls that he would have withdrawn by now.

    What adheres voters to Trump is trust in his patriotism and track record of delivering on terms. He has a long record of taking hopeless things and making them golden.

    Ted Cruz also engenders trust but Donald is able to unite many more factions which is why he is leading.

    Those who fall into either the Trump or Cruz camps are to be congratulated for their perceptiveness. We must ensure that one of these two incredible Americans go the distance to become our President.

    Yes, you are right. Thanks for the correction. I knew that VA was open, but post #3 led me to think that RPV was trying to close their primary.

    So the goal is to piss off independent and democrat conservatives and make them stay home. I wonder if it will work. I have my doubts as it seems clear those that are disgusted with the GOPe are generally more aware and alert.

    Cochran and Barbour of MS were also democrats that found it convenient and expedient to change parties during the Reagan Revolution, not because of principle, but as a means of retaining power.

    Are you sure you understand their tactic?

    Many conservatives who are disgusted with the GOPe have registered as independents and therefore, are not allowed to vote for conservative republican Ted Cruz or Donald Trump in the VA State GOP Primary.

    Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Washington DC, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington State, Wyoming.

    That’s 24 states and DC.



    Observing the fraud that McConnell, Cochran and Barbour pulled in Mississippi against tea party conservative Chris McDaniel, one must also be on the alert for open primary states where the GOPe can pay democrats to crossover to vote for a republican to ensure a conservative is defeated.

    Some democrats, or more accurately leftists, in a red state will register as republicans (or independent as the rules allow) so that they can vote for the weaker or less conservative republican. This is how McCain keeps winning the GOP primary in AZ senate races and because AZ is a red state, he keeps getting elected.

    Maybe. But ‘gay’ was/is defined as lighthearted, nonserious, humorous and pleasant. There may be a coincidence of terms.
