Democrats Planning to Use Senate “Reconciliation” Process to Enact Amnesty Legislation


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 23, 2021 by Sundance

Beware… it is likely the JoeBama amnesty plan will pass through the Senate in exactly the same way as Obamacare.  Through manipulation of the budgetary reconciliation process.

According to numerous outlets the JoeBama amnesty legislation has been created by the White House for congressional approval.

The House will likely pass such a proposal along party lines, just like ObamaCare; and then it goes to the Senate where Chuck Schumer will likely do the same reconciliation process to pass amnesty with a simple majority.

By stripping out a budget bill of substance, or using a COVID relief bill, the Senate amnesty bill will be inserted.  It will pass along party lines and then be reconciled with the same amnesty bill from the House.  The conniving leftists will do anything regardless of public support.

Watch carefully for them to move the execution of this up right after the House sends the impeachment article to the Senate.  They will use the period between receiving the article and the February 8th trial to pull-off this amnesty scheme when everyone is distracted. It’s how they roll.  Remember, at the time Harry Reid passed Obamacare (Dec ’09 reconciled in 2010) it was opposed by 74% of the voting electorate. They did it anyway…  Expect the same here.

(Vox) – […] The bill, known as the US Citizenship Act of 2021 and outlined in a four-page summary shared with reporters, would represent the most sweeping immigration reform package passed since 1986.

It marks both a symbolic and substantive break with the restrictionist immigration policies that have defined the last four years under Donald Trump, setting the tone for what Biden promises will be a more welcoming era for immigrants in the US. At its core is a long-awaited proposal to legalize the more than 10.5 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the US, many of whom have lived in fear of being deported and uprooted from their families for years.

It’s an early signal that the Biden administration is prioritizing immigration, despite an otherwise full agenda in Congress, including confirming the president’s Cabinet officials, conducting Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate, and passing additional Covid-19 relief. That draws a contrast with the Obama White House, which faced criticism for squandering its best opportunity to pass comprehensive immigration reform in 2013.

“We made a mistake,” Biden said when asked about why voters should entrust him with passing comprehensive immigration reform during an October presidential debate. “It took too long to get it right.”

[…] But even if the bill doesn’t survive in its entirety, Democrats and immigrant advocates are working to ensure that at least parts of it go on to become law in other forms, including through a budget reconciliation bill, which could pass by a simple majority, and in future pandemic relief packages.

DIA Purchasing Smartphone User Location Data Without Search Warrants


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 23, 2021 by Sundance

A rare but solid piece of reporting from the New York Times connects and outlines an issue that CTH 2.0 has been reviewing for several years with increased attention.

Essentially the U.S. security apparatus uses private sector data on cell phone users; purchasing as if they were commercial consumers of data; as part of their investigative and monitoring processes for Americans.  This is a big privacy issue that has been the subject of several hours of backroom discussion amid the CTH 2.0 tech team.

WASHINGTON — A military arm of the intelligence community buys commercially available databases containing location data from smartphone apps and searches it for Americans’ past movements without a warrant, according to an unclassified memo obtained by The New York Times.

Defense Intelligence Agency analysts have searched for the movements of Americans within a commercial database in five investigations over the past two and a half years, agency officials disclosed in a memo they wrote for Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat of Oregon.

[…] The disclosure sheds light on an emerging loophole in privacy law during the digital age: In a landmark 2018 ruling known as the Carpenter decision, the Supreme Court held that the Constitution requires the government to obtain a warrant to compel phone companies to turn over location data about their customers. But the government can instead buy similar data from a broker — and does not believe it needs a warrant to do so.

[…]  The government’s use of commercial databases of location information has come under increasing scrutiny. Many smartphone apps log their users’ locations, and the app makers can aggregate the data and sell it to brokers, who can then resell it — including to the government.

It has been known that the government sometimes uses such data for law enforcement purposes on domestic soil. (more)

On the whole this issue has been the subject of much research and discussion amid our archives.  When CTH was deplatformed by WordPress/Automattic; and anticipating a new regime in the White House would/could weaponize user data for political targeting; we began an exhaustive review of how to secure the CTH community and create a place where the rebel alliance could assemble without concern of metadata exploitation.  That effort is ongoing and more information will available soon with updates to the CTH optimization process currently underway.

Knowing the objectives of a JoeBama administration and aligned with the ideological intents of Big Tech we can easily see how “contractors” within the U.S. intelligence apparatus would likely operate as brokers to retrieve private sector information from big tech suppliers of user data.  This process allows U.S. intel organizations like the DIA to purchase information without search warrants exactly as described in the New York Times article.

When you overlay the intent of the JoeBama team to identify subversive voices, and then accept they will assign the “domestic terrorist” label to those who stand against the totalitarian policy of the regime, you can see how the privacy issue can be weaponized.

From our perspective…. Why would the government need a warrant if the information is available to anyone who wants it, for a fee or otherwise? The real solution would be to prohibit collection in the first place; anything else is chaff and countermeasures.

The Rebel Alliance is currently formulating anti-fragile technology platforms that block this intrusive exploitation.  CTH is leading this process.

Yes, there are more of us than them…. and we are smart.  Stay small, live Bigly.

Biden’s Parking Garage


Re-Posted from GrrrGraphics.com JAN 22, 2021 AT 4:02 PM

WELL THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG!

The Fraud In Chief,  barely 24 hours into his illegitimate presidency, betrays our troops.

Contrary to the glowing praise heaped upon Biden from Marxist boot-licker news networks such as CNN, Joe is a screw up. He always has been a screw up and he always will be. He used thousands of military men to protect him at his inauguration. He also wanted them there to provide an illusion that there were actually people there in attendance. After he was done with them, he tossed them aside like a kid does when he’s finished playing with plastic army men.

After Pelosi screamed for more and more troops to protect ‘her’ capitol from a non-existent threat, our military were forced into a cold parking garage instead of being provided sleeping quarters in a warm building.

The story is that a member of the National Guard was not wearing a mask on federal property (just like the Cheater in Chief) and some Democrat congressworm freaked out. This resulted in the troops being forced into an underground parking garage with no sleeping mats and only ONE bathroom.

Compare this disgusting treatment of the military to how President Trump treated the troops…tells you everything!

Cheater in Chief Biden is not our president, and many in the military seems to agree with our opinion!

This morning OANN reported that President Trump has given permission for the troops to stay at his lavish Trump Hotel in Washington DC.

TRUMP LOVES THE TROOPS. BIDEN USES THEM AS DECORATION AND CANNON FODDER.

A Message for the U.S. Military


SUPPORT YOUR COUNTRY. Honor your oaths, and dust off the perhaps neglected virtues of honor, integrity, bravery, righteousness, and love of country

Re_posted from the Canada Free Press By Jim ONeill —— Bio and ArchivesJanuary 22, 2021

I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office

I have a question for our military: Did you not take an oath, a solemn oath, to “support and defend” the United States Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic?”  And is it not your DUTY to protect and defend the American republic and its citizens?

We the People have just experienced an in-your-face “what you gonna do about it” election fraud of historic proportions

That’s what I thought.  So why aren’t you doing it?  Why are you standing around with your thumbs up your butts and ignoring your DUTY while your country gets flushed down the toilet.  And don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about.  You know damn well what I am talking about.

Although some in our military have no doubt been paid off by the Chicoms, or are hypnotized by some twisted ideology, or are weak and feckless for other reasons, I believe that there are still enough true patriots, strong, committed patriots, to save our republic from its imminent ruination.  It is to you uniformed patriots that I direct this article.  You are our last hope…and that is not hyperbole.

What we have here is a unique situation in America’s history.  We have no legal sitting president at this time.  By legal I mean a president elected in accordance with the rules set down in the Constitution.  I assure you that nowhere in the Constitution does it condone the winning of a presidential election through fraud and chicanery – in fact, quite the opposite.

Those who believe that it will mean anything if Trump starts a new political party, or the Republicans take back Congress are idiots.  We the People have just experienced an in-your-face “what you gonna do about it” election fraud of historic proportions.  There will never again be free and honest elections of any importance.  In the future The Powers That Be will elect who they wish to see elected and block who they don’t want.  It’s a given, you can take it to the bank.

Each branch of the military has its own intelligence service, and unless they are doing one piss poor job of gathering intelligence, then they know, THEY KNOW, that the only reason that Biden “won” this past presidential election was through deceit and foreign interference.  You are fine with that; you are just going to let that slide?  If so, then you are a disgrace to your uniform and nothing but a sad, sick joke.

America stands on the brink of an abyss

Unless you are prepared to turn your back on your country and your oaths (and perhaps you are) then you need to step up and DO YOUR DUTY, now.  Your country needs you like never before; this is no time to go all weak-kneed and spineless on We the People.

Now is an excellent time for you to step up and take charge.  As I say, there is currently no legal POTUS, so you would not be committing a coup – there is no president to commit a coup against!  You would simply be filling in this peculiar gap that presently exits between one legally elected president and the next.

America stands on the brink of an abyss, and she is going over the edge for sure unless you step up and take charge.  Or would you prefer to be held on a short leash by Chinese communists?  Some of you no doubt would…but I am betting that most of you would not.  Ask your intelligence services what the Chicoms have in mind for you.  If your intelligence services are worth anything then I doubt very much that you will enjoy what they have to tell you. 

You didn’t enjoy President Trump’s financial largesse – you would rather go back to the “more porridge if you please sir” begging of the Obama/Biden years?  Somehow, I doubt that. 

For your own blasted self-interest, if for no other reason, you need to support your country in this direst of times…and I mean SUPPORT YOUR COUNTRY.  Honor your oaths, and dust off the perhaps neglected virtues of honor, integrity, bravery, righteousness, and love of country.

Do it for yourself, for your pride.  Do it for We the People, do it for past patriots, and future generations.  Do it because it is the right thing to do.  Do it for the United States of America.  Do your DUTY, or go down in history as the craven spineless cowards that you will have proven yourselves to be.

Chuck Schumer Outlines Impeachment Schedule – Senate Trial Scheduled February 8, 2021

Speaker Pelosi Will Send Trump Impeachment Article to Senate on Monday, Senate Trial Likely Next Week


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 22, 2021 by Sundance

Friday afternoon House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed she will be sending an article of impeachment against President Trump to the senate on Monday.  Chuck Schumer confirms the senate trial will likely take place next week.

Any GOP Senator who goes along with this insufferably political scheme to target former President Trump will face a primary challenge in their next election.  We will ensure.

WASHINGTON DC – […] In a statement later on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed the plan and dismissed concerns by Republicans that Trump’s legal team wouldn’t have adequate time.

“The former president will have had the same amount of time to prepare for trial as our Managers,” Pelosi said, referring to her hand-picked team of House Democrats who will essentially serve as prosecutors in the Senate trial.

“The House has been respectful of the Senate’s constitutional power over the trial and always attentive to the fairness of the process,” Pelosi later added in a letter sent to her members, noting that Monday would be a “momentous and solemn day.”

Democrats have not yet offered details on when the trial will begin, but Pelosi’s decision to formally deliver the article of impeachment on Monday means that the Senate trial will likely begin early next week, absent a consent agreement between Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Under Senate rules, an impeachment trial must begin within one day after the House sends its article if the chamber is in session, unless Schumer and McConnell agree to a different timetable. (read more)

The goal of the entire democrat effort is to use Alinsky tactics against President Trump, and make sure he is not able to: run for office again, retain secret service protection.  Everything now is about targeting political opposition.  It’s all ugly… Big and Ugly.

Regime Change Back as Policy? JoeBama Sends More U.S. Troops into Syria


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 22, 2021 by Sundance

There is general agreement that George W Bush sent troops into Iraq as an outcome of the industrial war machine policy to advance U.S. interventionism; thereby completing the job his father President HW Bush was prudently not willing to escalate after the liberation of Kuwait.

President Donald Trump attempted to draw-down U.S. military all around the globe, specifically Europe and the middle-east.  However, as history often repeats, now it appears we are see the JoeBama administration sending troops back into Syria; perhaps to attempt the same regime change objective they failed in 2013 and 2014.  The mid-east war machine is oiled with American blood.

SYRIA – A convoy of 40 trucks and armor vehicles said to have entered Syria from Iraq

A large US military convoy entered northeastern Syria on Thursday, Syrian state news agency SANA reports, citing sources on the ground.

According to the report, the convoy included some 40 trucks and armored vehicles and was backed from the air by helicopters.

It entered Syria from Iraq via the al-Waleed crossing to bring arms and logistical equipment to the bases in Hasakeh and Deir Ezzor provinces. (read more)

It is rather ironic to hear the justification around a need for U.S. military to continue fighting ISIS, al-Qaeda and al-Nusra.  Ironic, considering the Obama-Biden administration specifically armed the Islamic extremists within Syria who shortly thereafter became known as ISIS.

BACKGROUND – We know the Obama administration was arming ISIS as part of the larger Syria strategy because Secretary of State John Kerry went on record admitting the Obama Syrian strategy was actually to arm ISIS and extremist Islamic groups (al-Nusra) against Assad.

We also know Secretary Kerry was being truthful in that media-hidden, albeit recorded, admission because CTH specifically tracked and investigated the CIA weapons shipments as an accidental outcome of the finalized Benghazi Briefing material in 2013/2014.

♦ In August of 2014 President Obama (wearing a tan business suit) gave a press conference where he stated he “did not have a strategy” against ISIS. –Video Link

♦ Two months later, in October of 2014, Josh Earnest gave a press conference where he stated: “Our ISIS strategy is dependent on something that does not yet exist” –Video Link

However, on September 30th 2016 the New York Times quietly released a leaked audio recording of Secretary John Kerry meeting with multiple factions associated within Syria.
When you listen to the audio recording (embed below) it becomes immediately obvious what was going on when both of those 2014 statements were made by the White House. In addition, you discover why this jaw-dropping 2016 leak/story was buried by the U.S. media and how it connects to over 5 years of perplexing U.S. mid-east policy.

This evidence within this single story would/should forever remove any credibility toward the U.S. foreign policy under President Obama. It also destroys the credibility of a large number of well known republicans. What the recording reveals is substantive:

♦ Firstonly regime change, the removal of Bashir Assad, in Syria was the goal for President Obama. This is admitted and outlined by Secretary John Kerry.

♦ Secondly, in order to accomplish this primary goal, the White House was willing to watch the rise of ISIS by placing their bet that ISIS’s success would force Syrian President Bashir Assad to acquiesce toward Obama’s terms and step down.

♦ Thirdly, in order to facilitate the two objectives, Obama and Kerry intentionally gave arms to ISIS and even, arguably, attacked a Syrian government military convoy to stop a strategic attack upon the Islamic extremists killing 80 Syrian soldiers.

Pause for a moment and consider those three points carefully before continuing. Because this audio (below), along with accompanying research now surfacing, not only exposes these three points as truth – but also provides the specific evidence toward them.

The problem in the Obama/Kerry’s secret strategy became clear when ISIS grew in sufficient strength to give the White House optimism for the scheme – however, instead of capitulation Assad then turned to Russia for help.

When Russia came to aid Bashir Assad the Syrian Government began being able to defeat ISIS and the Islamic Extremist elements within Syria. For the hidden plan of Obama/Kerry (and also McCain, Graham, et al), Russia defeating ISIS, al-Qaeda and al-Nusra, upended their objective.

The revelations within this leaked audio are simply astounding. The 40-minute discussion took place on the sidelines of a United Nations General Assembly in New York. The meeting took place at the Dutch Mission to the United Nations on Sept. 22nd 2016:

[…] Kerry’s off-record conversation was apparently with two dozen ‘Syrian civilians’, all from US backed opposition-linked NGO’s in education and medical groups supposedly working in ‘rebel-held’ (aka terrorist-held) areas in Syria.
This opposition conclave also included ‘rescue workers’ which can only be ambassadors from the White Helmetsa pseudo NGO which serves as Washington and London’s primary PR front in pursuit of a “No Fly Zone’ in Syria, and it’s being bankrolled by the US, UK, EU and other coalition states to the tune of well over $100 million (so far). (link)

Listen to the audio.

Key Kerry moments at 02:00, and again at approximately 18:30 forward.

The discussion from 18:30 through to 29:00 are exceptionally revealing and should be listened to by anyone who has wondered what was going on in Syria. Kerry even makes mention of the “Responsibility to Protect, or R2P” principle. A policy created by Samantha Power (former U.N. Ambassador and Cass Sunstein’s wife):

Further consider how this Kerry audio tape, and the now transparent Obama policy toward Syria, absolutely confirms our previous research as it is contained with the Benghazi Brief surrounding Syria during the Obama-Biden years:

(JULY 2012) As they stood outside the commandeered government building in the town of Mohassen, it was hard to distinguish Abu Khuder’s men from any other brigade in the Syrian civil war, in their combat fatigues, T-shirts and beards.

But these were not average members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year.

They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs.

According to Abu Khuder, his men are working closely with the military council that commands the Free Syrian Army brigades in the region. “We meet almost every day,” he said. “We have clear instructions from our [al-Qaida] leadership that if the FSA need our help we should give it. We help them with IEDs and car bombs. Our main talent is in the bombing operations.” Abu Khuder’s men had a lot of experience in bomb-making from Iraq and elsewhere, he added.

[…] Abu Khuder split with the FSA and pledged allegiance to al-Qaida’s organisation in Syria, the Jabhat al Nusra or Solidarity Front. He let his beard grow and adopted the religious rhetoric of a jihadi, becoming a commander of one their battalions.

“The Free Syrian Army has no rules and no military or religious order. Everything happens chaotically,” he said. “Al-Qaida has a law that no one, not even the emir, can break.

The FSA lacks the ability to plan and lacks military experience. That is what [al-Qaida] can bring. They have an organisation that all countries have acknowledged.

In the beginning there were very few. Now, mashallah, there are immigrants joining us and bringing their experience,” he told the gathered people. “Men from Yemen, Saudi, Iraq and Jordan. Yemenis are the best in their religion and discipline and the Iraqis are the worst in everything – even in religion.”

At this, one man in the room – an activist in his mid-30s who did not want to be named – said: “So what are you trying to do, Abu Khuder? Are you going to start cutting off hands and make us like Saudi? Is this why we are fighting a revolution?”

“[Al-Qaida’s] goal is establishing an Islamic state and not a Syrian state,” he replied. “Those who fear the organisation fear the implementation of Allah’s jurisdiction. If you don’t commit sins there is nothing to fear.” (link – more)

al-Qaeda’s goal was to establish the Islamic State, that’s the origin of ISIS. Against the backdrop of ISIS formation in Syria, and understanding the Obama objectives were regime change first and foremost, we can now reconcile all of Obama’s foreign policy surrounding Syria.

President Obama, Secretary Clinton and later Secretary Kerry, together with John McCain, and the CIA tentacled team within the Republican party, were willing to support ISIS (under all factional names) in order to overthrow Bashir Assad…

THIS WAS THE POLICY. Nothing else mattered.

Now, does THIS  and the moves today also begin to make more sense.

Tools For The New Regime – Troops Used as Narrative Props in DC Sent to Sleep in Parking Garage by Lawmakers


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 22, 2021 by Sundance

If ever there was an example of how the DC elites think about the military, this series of events provides the highlight.

No-one has yet to provide a reasonable justification for 25,000 national guard troops dispatched to Washington DC for the JoeBama inauguration.  There were no issues with protests either in DC or any state capitol, despite the drum-beating narrative from the media in advance of the event.

The inaugural “domestic terrorist” narrative needed props, ergo the military were called-in.  Once their optical usefulness was exhausted the democrat politicians wanted them gone from the Capitol buildings and sent them into a parking garage.

WASHINGTON DC – Thousands of National Guardsmen were allowed back into the Capitol Thursday night, hours after U.S. Capitol Police officials ordered them to vacate the facilities, sending them outdoors or to nearby parking garages after two weeks pulling security duty after the deadly riot on Jan. 6.

One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.

[…] All National Guard troops were told to vacate the Capitol and nearby congressional buildings on Thursday, and to set up mobile command centers outside or in nearby hotels, another Guardsman confirmed. They were told to take their rest breaks during their 12-hour shifts outside and in parking garages, the person said.  (read more)

On His First Day in Office JoeBama Destroyed Women’s Collegiate Sports Allowing Biologically-male Athletes to Compete


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 21, 2021 by Sundance

On day 1, Joe Biden has unilaterally eviscerated women’s competitive sports. According to the executive order any educational institution that receives federal funding must allow biologically-male athletes to compete individually, on teams, and reward scholarships.

Yes, that means U.S. Women’s soccer will now be played by men.  Ridiculous.

(WHITE HOUSE) By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love. Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports. Adults should be able to earn a living and pursue a vocation knowing that they will not be fired, demoted, or mistreated because of whom they go home to or because how they dress does not conform to sex-based stereotypes. People should be able to access healthcare and secure a roof over their heads without being subjected to sex discrimination. All persons should receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation. (read more)

Are The Democrats Really in a Bear Market?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: You say that the Democratic Party is on the decline but it would appear to be the exact opposite. The GOP proved to be traitors when they turned against Trump, and many people I know have said they will never vote Republican again. Also, now that the Democrats are able to rig elections and get away with it this means that future elections will be like communist countries where they get 100% of the vote. The same is true if there is a third party because neither can they win a rigged election.

RR

ANSWER: It may appear that way, but the Democrats are united only in their hatred of Republicans. They are deeply divided on issues even on climate. Nevertheless, Biden day one made it mandatory to wear masks in all federal buildings, and he immediately rejoined the United Nations. The trend is the trend. This is not my opinion. Each high is lower. Just look at the chart as if it were a market. If the Dow kept making lower highs since the Great Depression, you would not be investing in it and you would not call it a bull market.

The Democrats may seem to be in power, but that has dwindled to 50.4%. I fully agree that the Republicans under Mitch McConnel are trying to repudiate everything Trump stood for. He forgets that Trump did not start the anti-establishment movement. The people voted for him because it was a vote against the establishment – not necessarily for Trump as a person.

The Republicans will split and they will lose at least one-third of their support and as much as 70%. By the time we get to 2022, we may see a new 3rd party form and you will even have conservative Democrats abandoning the AOC climate extremists. Following the Paris Accord will cost so many jobs and unemployment will rise, thus even the Democrats will lose ground. So 2022 looks to be chaotic and that seems to be shaping up by our computer forecasting a Panic cycle in politics for 2022.
