Weekly Reminder, She’s Running


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 22, 2021 | Sundance | 246 Comments

In the annals of modern political history the one constant in an ever-changing universe is the entrenched tone-deafness of the establishment republican class.  Actually, it is not so much they are tone-deaf, as it is they just don’t care.  The reminder this week is that Nikki Haley intends to run for President in 2024. {Go Deep}

(Via The Hill) Nikki Haley will headline the Iowa Republican Party’s most prominent gathering of the year, a move that’s likely to fuel speculation about a potential 2024 presidential bid.

The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations will head to the first-in-the-nation caucus state in June to host the Iowa GOP’s annual Lincoln Dinner, the party announced on Thursday. The dinner is a major fundraising event for the state party and one with a history of drawing Republican presidential hopefuls. (Read More)

…”“I don’t think [Trump’s] going to be in the picture,” she said, matter-of-factly. “I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.” […] “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”  (link)

I would drive railroad spikes through my kneecaps before I would vote for Nikki Haley, the Mitt Romney of John McCains’.  However, that said, the professional political class don’t give a tinker’s hoot what the base voter wants.  They will pull every trick out of their DeceptiCon hat to help her.  Watch, you’ll see.

If we don’t fight her off now, she will scheme and connive her way into position for the republican primary.  You can see the library of information we have about all her moves HERE.

Right now the most likely top four candidates appear to be: President Trump (if he runs), Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (will be #1 without Trump and will likely get the Trump endorsement), South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (Maga-lite with twist of Koch and open border Wall Street support), and Nikki Haley (full throated establishment class with zero authenticity for MAGA policy)…..

The strategic primary splitter(s) will likely be lyin’ Ted Cruz and Kristi Noem if Trump doesn’t get rid of RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

Pence “Laying Groundwork” For a 2024 Presidential Bid?

Not an April fool’s joke, but it might as well be.

Two media reports [Here and Here] about former VP Mike Pence considering a potential run for President in 2024 present the most laughable political hypothetical in recent memory.   Particularly, and specifically, because even President Trump would likely not include Pence in a short list of people for endorsement.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump recently rattled off the names of those he viewed as future leaders of the Republican Party, including Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz along with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Conspicuously absent from the list: Mike Pence.

The former vice president is steadily reentering public life as he eyes a potential run for the White House in 2024.” (read more)

Newsmax has a similar story outlining steps Mike Pence appears to be making to lean forward to the 2024 GOP primary.  However, as pointed out by both articles, President Trump has not included his former VP in any positive affirmation about the future of the republican party.

NewsMax – […] “Since leaving office in January, Pence, who was Indiana’s governor and a member of Congress before being tapped as Trump’s running mate, has kept a lower profile. He’s pieced together a portfolio aimed at maintaining influence, paying the bills, and laying the groundwork for an expected presidential run.

He’s forged a partnerships with the conservative Heritage Foundation and has even been discussed as a potential president of the organization, according to two people familiar with the discussions. He’s joined the Young America’s Foundation and a top speakers’ bureau, penned an op-ed for the Daily Signal about the 2020 election, and recently toured a Christian relief organization in North Carolina. He will make his first public speech since leaving office next month at the Palmetto Family Council’s annual fundraiser in South Carolina, another crucial primary state.

Pence also has discussed writing a book, according to aides, has been in continued conversation with his evangelical allies, and plans to spend much of the next two years helping Republican candidates as they try to reclaim House and Senate majorities in 2022. (read more)

Sunday Talks, Senator Ted Cruz Discusses GOP Border Visit and Ongoing Border Crisis


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 28, 2021 | Sundance | 130 Comments

Sometimes it is difficult to bite your tongue and not respond negatively to the manipulative public positioning of well known sanctimonious hypocrites.  Today, as I watched this interview with Senator Ted Cruz, my prayers were for grace amid the face the stunning & historical hypocrisy.

You see, there’s a problem with Cruz’s current position of advocacy regarding the southern border crisis… a position he must first reconcile before any credibility can be given to any statements.  Back in 2014 Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck and Dana Loesch attacked anyone who challenged them on their ridiculous public spectacle at the U.S. southern border; during their Teddy Bears and Soccer Balls tour.  More on that in a moment….

Here is Ted Cruz discussing his ‘new found’ concern about illegal aliens under the Biden administration.

In 2014 Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck and Dana Loesch went to the Texas border to deliver gifts to the incoming illegal aliens during the first of many crisis involving “Unaccompanied Alien Children.” Yes the same Dana Loesch that went on to become the spokesperson for the NRA was at the border handing out gifts to illegal border crossers under the guise of a humanitarian crisis. {Full Details Here}

Beck and Cruz were passing out Teddy Bears and Soccer Balls, while Catholic Charities and Baptist Child and Family Services were getting millions. The inner-city American kids? Well, nothing for them…. not even a word from DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. But, oh yeah, Black Lives Matter, right? I digress.  All of this is well documented in the links above. It’s all there for those who have eyes to see and a capability of being intellectually honest.

When Clarice Feldman, Thomas Lifson (American Thinker) and myself called-out their enabling conduct, the trio of Cruz, Beck and Loesch went bananas and launched a full-throated attack against us for calling them out. Seven years later Ted Cruz apparently wants everyone to forget what he did to create the environment that now exists as the UAC issue on steroids happens again.

♦ Ted Cruz was for South American Refugees (2014 – link) “Soccer Ball and Teddy Bear Delivery” before he was against SA/Mexican refugees and promoting a border wall (2015) – He cannot square that factual circle ~ Research Outline
♦ Ted Cruz was for Trade Promotion Authority (2015 – link), before he was against Trade Promotion Authority (2015) – He cannot square that factual circle. ~ Research Outline
♦ Ted Cruz was for Taking More Syrian Refugees (2014 – link), specifically dismissing the threat of terror embeds, before he was against taking Syrian Refugees (2015 – link) – He cannot square that factual circle. ~ Research Outline
♦ Ted Cruz was against Ethanol Subsidies (2013 – link), before he was for Ethanol Subsidies (2016 – link) – He cannot square that factual circle. ~ Research Outline
♦ Ted Cruz was for Anchor Baby Birthright Citizenship (2011 – link), before he was against “birthright citizenship” (2015 – link) – He cannot square that factual circle. ~ Research Outline
♦ Ted Cruz was for the Iran Deal “Corker Cardin Amendment” (2015 – link), before he was against the Iran Deal (2015 – link) – He cannot square that factual circle. ~ Research Outline
♦ Ted Cruz was for Mitch McConnell (2014 – link), before he was against Mitch McConnell (2014 link) – He cannot square that factual circle. ~ Research outline
♦ Ted Cruz was against Chris McDaniel (2014 – link), before he was for Chris McDaniel (2015) – He cannot square that factual circle – Research outline

Yes, we have a crisis at the southern border; however, it is a crisis that Ted Cruz has always wind-tested his response toward.

The Fraud in Georgia


Armstrong Economics Blog/Conspiracy Re-Posted Mar 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The Washington Post has been forced, no doubt begrudgingly, a retraction from two months after they published a story that made it sound like Trump was trying to rig the election speaking to an elections investigator in Georgia. The Post reported in January that the then President had spoken to Frances Watson in December, asking her to “find the fraud” in the state and that she would be a “national hero” if she did. The Washington Post has said that the quotes were based on “information provided by a source” which was obviously anti-Trump. Biden had won Georgia by 12,000 votes and the last time any Democrat won that state was Clinton back in 1992. Our models clearly showed that Trump should have won Georgia with 3 out of 4 models confirming that.

A staffer investigating the election fraud in Georgia was killed in an accident that was a fireball and highly unusual. The prosecutor then investigating this accident was found dead shot in the head. There was just no way our model was wrong on Georgia. After the Washington Post ran the story with the fake quote, CNN, ABC News, NBC News, and USA Today all subsequently claimed that they had “confirmed” that the Washington Post’s reporting was true.

Now what is really interesting is that the phone call that was erased from Ms. Watson’s device and was recovered by officials responding to a freedom-of-information request. The quotes that were then attributed to President Trump by an anonymous source were outright lies.

Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump simply told the investigator to audit ballots in Fulton County, stating he believed she would find ‘dishonesty’ there and that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now’.

There is no question that a TON of money was in play to overthrow Trump to push this Great Reset on a global scale. Interestingly, Biden said he would immediately rejoin the UN’s Paris Climate Agreement and he would use the power of the US to force China to comply. China, the world’s top producer of carbon pollution, looms large in any climate discussion because it pledges to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2060.  The UN has been pushing itself as a new one-world government over the environment claiming that a single nation cannot solve the problem.

The fraud in the US elections was ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to pushing the World Economic Forum & Klaus Schwab’s agenda. This was not about Trump v Biden. This was an election that was interfered with from international sources combined with domestic. Claims this was China interfering I do not see has solid merit. The real source of funds for all the brides and threats did not come from China. They are desperate to create this Cancel Culture which is the same political agenda used by the Communists during the Russian Revolution.

It seems very curious that now the US Intelligence is pointing the finger at Russia and Iran influencing the 2020 election in their latest report which was declassified and released Tuesday by U.S. intelligence officials. However, to ensure it does not upset Biden, they quickly added that U.S. officials did not find evidence that foreign actors tried to alter “technical” aspects of the voting process, such as voter registration files or vote counting. They merely “spread false or inflated claims about alleged compromises of voting systems to undermine public confidence in election processes and results,” according to their latest questionable report. In truth, what they are trying to do is now claim that Russia engaged in a broad effort to undermine U.S. public confidence in the election. This is really double-talk because the US does the very same thing in all foreign elections. Remember Obama telling the Brits to get to the back of the line if they dared to vote for BREXIT.

This is just part of the latest smoke-screen because the real interference was a direct assault on the election process and that did not involve either Russia or China. Both had everything to lose with a Biden victory for Biden has simply handed power to the United Nations to impose Climate Change agenda with the argument it will take one government to save the planet.

Our models are also warning that the March 2020 COVID Crash was also an attempt to create another economic collapse but far worse than 2007-2009. In that respect, they failed because the smart money smelled endless government debt at artificially deflated interest rates.  The high in the PE Ratio took place in 2009 at the bottom of the share market as capital moved to equities fearing both government and banks. Note that as of March 2021, we are retesting the 40:1 level illustrating that capital is once against starting to seek shelter from bonds, banks, and governments.

Mitch McConnell Prepares For Democrats, Actually the UniParty, to Eliminate The Senate’s Legislative Filibuster


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 16, 2021 | Sundance | 73 Comments

Mitch McConnell gave an anticipated speech in the Senate today positioning himself against the end of the Senate filibuster.  Unfortunately for those who understand how McConnell operates, methinks he doth protest too much. 

Let me be perfectly clear… every word in those prepared remarks was/is an act.  This is what Mitch McConnell does.  CTH has pointed out for several months how McConnell is personally preparing for the end of the filibuster.  [Here and Here] He knows it will likely end, because he has seeded the framework for the end of the process.  What McConnell is doing now is pure positioning.

The number of McConnell’s specific DeceptiCon caucus no longer running for re-election is a key indicator the McConnell crew know the filibuster is about to end.  They are all pre-positioning for that result.   Do not think it will not happen, because the odds are the filibuster is about to end.

“Senators Richard Burr (NC), Ron Johnson (WI), Pat Toomey (PA), Rob Portman (OH), and Richard Shelby all previously stated they were not going to seek reelection; Senator Roy Blunt made the same announcement.”

This is not a surprise. McConnell is fully exposed now; people can finally see through his schemes and understand his motives and maneuvers.

As we noted following the election, the business model of selling votes is no longer as lucrative. McConnell and Harry Reid created and then held the UniParty power system as a system for affluence and influence. However, McConnell’s signature legacy item will be his role in eliminating the filibuster and turning the senate into a simple majority system.

In order to give the appearance of his opposition to this move, despite his years of working earnestly toward it, McConnell will exit very soon after the filibuster is eliminated. He will then blame the elimination of the filibuster as the excuse for his departure. This is the Machiavellian way he operates.

WASHINGTON DC – […] Top Democrats, including the two highest-ranking party members in the Senate, have stepped up rhetoric in recent days about the future of the filibuster, a parliamentary custom that requires support from 60 of the chamber’s 100 members to pass most legislation.

The filibuster has long been seen as a mechanism requiring bipartisan consensus that distinguishes the Senate from the House of Representatives, where only a simple majority is needed on legislation. With the current Senate split 50-50, Democrats have said they may need to do away with the filibuster to pass Biden’s priorities, including a House-approved bill intended to facilitate voting in elections.

“This chaos would not open up an express lane to liberal change. It would not open up an express lane for the Biden presidency to speed into the history books. The Senate would be more like a 100-car pileup. Nothing moving,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said on the Senate floor.

“Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin … to imagine what a completely scorched-earth Senate would look like,” he added, saying Republicans would require votes on all parliamentary moves, drastically slowing the pace of business. (read more)

Will the Democrats Indict Trump?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Mar 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is a classic example of why someone like him will do anything to save his skin. The indictment process is a joke. The prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich. There is no defense allowed and whatever he tells the grand jury is secret. Indictments really do not mean a lot. They will typically be vague enough to ensure the defendant does not really know what the issue is. Cohen has met with the prosecutors 7 times. That is an indication that they are moving to try to indict Trump for a political agenda.

In one of the Mafia cases in New York, one of the defendants subpoenaed his own phone recordings and the prison produced the recordings of the guy who was going to testify against him. There was the same prosecutor telling the witness he needed him to testify in another case against someone else. He told the prosecutor he did not know that person. On the tape, the prosecutor told him “Don’t worry. By the time I am finished, you will know him as your brother.”

The defendant took it to I believe it was Judge Kaplan who refused to consider it and said that was in another case. This is how corrupt the legal system is. There is no justice. New York State Chief Judge Sol Wachtler was famously quoted by Tom Wolfe in The Bonfire of the Vanities that “a grand jury would ‘indict a ham sandwich,’ if that’s what you wanted.”

The bottom line is that the Democrats are working overtime to indict Trump. This is all about trying to stop him in 2024. Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. (D) is pursuing a wide-ranging investigation into Trump’s family business and finances to desperately bring him down for political purposes. His probe is looking into several aspects of Trump’s finances and businesses focusing in particular on his Seven Springs estate in New York. Previous reports have indicated that Vance is looking to find out if the value of the property was inflated in order to reap greater benefits from financial institutions.

Vance is looking to make a big show out of Trump and can’t wait to have him arrested. That would then involve even an extradition charge with Florida who would then review his indictment to see if there is any real validity to it. So this could turn into a real shit-show and Trump better never travel to New York City.

Interestingly, Governor Cuomo was looking to divert money Vance has been pouring out of every crack to indict Trump. There are new discovery requirements in New York that will need $2 million to be provided to prosecutors statewide. Criminal discovery law reforms, which took effect on Jan. 1, require prosecutors to turn over evidence to defendants within 15 days after arraignment and limit cash bail for most non-violent offenses. This was all in response to criticisms that the state has not provided enough money to help district attorneys comply with the new requirements and they have been denying defendants the right to defend.

The Report of Meghan Markle “Preparing a Bid To Become President” is BURYING THE LEDE


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 13, 2021 | Sundance | 90 Comments

By now several people have reviewed a Daily Mail article based around a premise, a media hook, that Meghan Markle might be “preparing a bid to become president” and that’s why she did the Oprah Winfrey interview.   If you focused on that media hook, you likely missed the lede.

Media stories often contain the fingerprints of motive, a slight truth hidden in a background of obfuscation, and you can find the leftist activity if you know what to look for.  The buried lede in the story is this short segment:

[…] “One senior Labour figure – a veteran of Tony Blair’s Downing Street administration with strong links to Washington – claimed to The Mail on Sunday that Ms Markle, 39, was networking among senior Democrats“… (read more)

There it is: “networking among senior Democrats.”  That’s the data point to focus on.

That’s the part of the story that tells us exactly what was going on in that Oprah interview; and it is exactly what we suspected it was HERE and HERE.

Of course she was “networking” with “senior Democrats”, specifically she was networking with Obama’s Chicago crew; and that leads to Oprah, Obama’s biggest narrative engineer.

The Markle interview was purposefully orchestrated, racism claims intentionally injected, recorded, and then timed to be released/broadcast the day before the trial against Derek Chauvin while the George Floyd protestors were activated.  This is how the Obama crew operate.  This is how the leftists work.  None of this is accidental and that statement by the “senior Labour figure” is 100% correct…. except for the cover story to hide the motive.

As we shared last week:

“People who have watched the way the Obama team use pop culture to advance Marxist political objectives have already seen through the ruse of the Meghan Markle comments with Oprah Winfrey. It was not accidental the interview comments about racism were organized, timed and released to coincide with the George Floyd trial in Minnesota. It’s how the cultural Marxists work.

If any group of people can see through to the orchestration of this, it is you, the CTH community. We have researched the Obama use of racism as a political tool for years; that technique includes using media figures like Oprah. The Chicago fingerprints of the familiar architects are clear as day on this ridiculous story.”

“Considering the Oprah angle; and considering Oprah is one of the primary conduits, advance agents and protectors of all things related to President Obama; it would not be surprising to discover that Obama’s team of Chicago provocateurs are in the close-background of the Markle network. Useful division based on advancement of racist accusations is a classic Maoist approach to achieve modern Marxist outcomes.”

Well, there you have it. Today we discover that prior to the interview: “Ms Markle, 39, was networking among senior Democrats.

Explosive Statement – Attorney Sidney Powell Alleges Kelly Loeffler Staffer, Harrison Deal, Was Murdered


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 13, 2021 | Sundance | 139 Comments

On Friday December 4, 2020, a 20-year-old campaign worker for Senator Kelly Loeffler named Harrison Deal was killed in a fiery three car crash on Interstate 16.  On Thursday night March 11th, during an explosive interview carried on BEK TV with Doug Billings, Attorney Sidney Powell alleges the crash was not an accident.

When responding to questions about why Bill Barr let us down and did not pursue legal cases/investigations about election fraud Ms. Powell responded: “frankly I think it is something much darker than that”, and then comes the bombshell:

“I do have knowledge of other people being threatened and horribly intimidated by threats and extortion, and even the murder of Kelly Loeffler’s young staffer in Georgia. That was no car accident he was vaporized by whatever the explosion was.  Some people who know more about it than I do tell me it had to have been thermite to have triggered such a fireball such as happened in that car.”

WATCH:

This is a stunning allegation from Ms. Powell who goes on to outline some of the current standing issues with the investigations into the election.  From the overall interview it appears Sidney Powell is optimistic about ballot fraud eventually being exposed in the 2020 election.  A remarkable interview.

Minneapolis City Council Agrees to Give Family of George Floyd $27 Million in Taxpayer Funded Settlement


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 12, 2021 | Sundance | 163 Comments

The Minneapolis City Council has agreed to give the family of George Floyd $27 million in the largest settlement in the city’s history.  The massive civil settlement comes on the heels of congress passing a massive city and state bailout bill under the auspices of COVID.  [Statement from Ben Crump HERE]

It is not a stretch to see a situation where Minneapolis is paying out this $27 million settlement because they now have an influx of federal cash to support or replace it.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The city of Minneapolis on Friday agreed to pay $27 million to settle a civil lawsuit from George Floyd’s family over the Black man’s death in police custody, even as jury selection continued in a former officer’s murder trial.

The Minneapolis City Council emerged from closed session to announce the record settlement, which includes $500,000 for the neighborhood where Floyd was arrested. Floyd family attorney Ben Crump called a news conference for 1 p.m. that was to include family members.

Crump, in a prepared statement, said it was the largest pretrial civil rights settlement ever, and “sends a powerful message that Black lives do matter and police brutality against people of color must end.” (read more)

Pressure Increases on Governor Andrew Cuomo to Resign Following Sexual Harassment Claims, Cuomo Defiant Says He Will Not Resign


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 12, 2021 | Sundance | 198 Comments

Half of New York’s democrats are now asking Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign following six women stepping forward with details of sexual harassment.  However, the New York governor, who is also guilty of killing thousands of elderly residents with his COVID nursing home rules, is defiant in his media statements today.

ALBANY, N.Y. — (AP) — As the Democratic Party turned sharply against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and he faces growing allegations of sexual harassment, he insisted Friday he wouldn’t resign and castigated politicians calling for him to quit as “reckless and dangerous” and engaging in “cancel culture.”

“I did not do what has been alleged. Period,” he said, again calling on the public to let ongoing investigations into his conduct to play out. “Wait for the facts.”  “Politicians who don’t know a single fact but yet form a conclusion and an opinion are, in my opinion, reckless and dangerous,” he added.

With a sprawling coalition of congressional leaders joining dozens of state lawmakers in calling for the embattled governor to step down, the Democrat hit back.  “You need to know the facts before you make a decision,” he said. “People know the difference between playing politics, bowing to cancel culture and the truth.”

Cuomo’s growing list of detractors now covers virtually every region in the state and the political power centers of New York City and Washington. His allies insist he will not resign, but as allegations of sexual harassment grow, his political isolation has reached unprecedented levels. (read more)
