Mitch McConnell Up To His Dirty Tricks Again – Now Targeting Hershel Walker to Block Potential Georgia Senate Race


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 24, 2021 | sundance | 225 Comments

Mitch McConnell has a long history of using dirty tricks to target grassroots Republicans who do not fit his view of the Senate.

Readers will long remember McConnell’s dirty and underhanded tricks in the 2014 Senate Race in Mississippi, when his DeceptiCons crew targeted candidate Chris McDaniel in order to protect a brutally senile McConnell ally, Senator Thad Cochran.  McConnell, working with a very corrupt Haley Barbour, paid Mississippi Democrats to vote for Cochran after McDaniel successfully forced a run-off election by gaining more votes in the primary race.   The dirty “racist” accusations in the election were typical of McConnell tactics. {Go Deep}

Well, now it appears McConnell’s little Decepticon cronies are back at it with presumptive attacks against likely Georgia Senate candidate Hershel Walker.  Mr. Walker is a well known sports icon and a strong supporter of President Trump.  Walker is very much MAGA-minded, which makes him a target for the DeceptiCon establishment crew.

As noted by an article a few months ago, President Trump really wants Hershel Walker to run: …“It is abundantly clear to all Republicans how badly Trump and his family want Herschel Walker to run. Publicly, the former president has encouraged Walker to run against Warnock. But his behind-the-scenes push has been even more robust. In recent weeks, Trump has personally asked GOP senators to call Walker and urge him to get in the race, according to two people familiar with those conversations.”

The level of support by President Trump would position Walker as a shoo-in for the 2022 GOP primary, which puts Trump and Walker in an adversarial position to Mitch McConnell who wants another controlled member like former Senator Kelly Loeffler.  It is not accidental that Loeffler’s husband owns the New York stock exchange; yup, the GOPe wing of the UniParty loves their Wall Street candidates.

In a very familiar play, McConnell now dumps his opposition research on Hershel Walker into the media, likely through his former Chief-of-Staff Josh Holmes.  This is just how McConnell operates.  [AP hit job here]

The good news is that people are more tuned-in and awake to McConnell’s dirty tricks.  As a result, these types of assassination hits do not carry the same weight with voters as they did before.   This is one of the upsides to the MAGA awakening brought about by President Trump.

Hershel Walker may be a flawed person, isn’t everyone… but that doesn’t disqualify him from being a great representative of common working class values in office. Quite the contrary, these attacks hold no weight and Walker would easily win the Georgia election.   Once you realize how vile, manipulative and corrupt the political class is, it changes your entire perspective on the qualifications needed to battle that corruption.

As I said in 2015… Donald Trump could show up to a debate in 5″ heels, wearing a Carmen Miranda hat and start twerking at the podium of the opponent and I would still vote for him.  It’s new rules.  We are looking for fighters now.  The same outlook applies toward Hershel Walker.

Are you willing to use common sense and speak directly, honestly and clearly?

Do you believe in “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”?

Will you stop government from reaching into our lives with rules and dictates?

Will you support America-First and the U.S middle-class?

Will you fight, nasty if needed, for those simple issues and values?

If so,… WE GOOD!

Mitt Romney sells $23.5M home after years fighting with neighbors


Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Jul 12, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Mit Romney is finally selling his home on the beach and the neighbors are saying thank God. Romney moved in and tried to change the fact that he wanted people to be prohibited from walking the beach in front of his house. I have lived on the beach for probably half my life and the one thing that is definitive is people are allowed to walk the beach even when you own out to the high water mark for tax purposes. You cannot buy a house in the middle of a public beach area and then try to use your political pull to block the beach. This was amazingly arrogant.

President Trump Delivers a Message to Liz Cheney and the DeceptiCon Caucus


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on May 5, 2021 | Sundance | 219 Comments

President Trump delivered a brutally honest statement to Liz Cheney, the professional republican apparatus and the decepticon caucus therein:

DONALD TRUMP – “Warmonger Liz Cheney, who has virtually no support left in the Great State of Wyoming, continues to unknowingly and foolishly say that there was no Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election when in fact, the evidence, including no Legislative approvals as demanded by the U.S. Constitution, shows the exact opposite. Had Mike Pence referred the information on six states (only need two) back to State Legislatures, and had gutless and clueless MINORITY Leader Mitch McConnell (he blew two seats in Georgia that should have never been lost) fought to expose all of the corruption that was presented at the time, with more found since, we would have had a far different Presidential result, and our Country would not be turning into a socialist nightmare! Never give up! (LINK)

Additionally, President Trump puts his support behind a replacement for Liz Cheney in Elise Stefanik:

Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership. We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator!” (LINK)

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?


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 30, 2021 | Sundance | 349 Comments

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.

FBI Rleases New Video of Suspect Planting Pipe Bombs in DC on January 5th – But Wait for it….


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 9, 2021 | Sundance | 128 Comments

According to the FBI: …”The FBI’s Washington Field Office has released new information and video regarding the pipe bombs placed in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C., on January 5, 2021, and is seeking additional information from the public. Identifying the person responsible for placing these pipe bombs is a priority for the FBI’s Washington Field Office and our partners at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; U.S. Capitol Police; and D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

Accept the statement at face value and then ask yourself:  what is wrong with this picture?

(Screengrab Source)

Seeking your help.  Comments turned off.

See the problem?

Actually, it’s not a problem… it is just an affirmation of intent.  The FBI is in the business of creating, engineering and supporting political narratives.  The FBI is a political institution, that’s why the request doesn’t align with the system… they don’t really want the public’s help; because it is pushing and promoting the investigation itself that is the goal.

Once you accept the FBI is a political organization with political interests, expectations and objectives, then everything makes sense.

On the evening before the violence at our nation’s Capitol, between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., two pipe bombs were placed near the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters and Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters. One device was placed in an alley behind the RNC headquarters, located at 310 First Street Southeast, and the other was placed next to a park bench near the DNC headquarters, located at 430 South Capitol Street Southeast #3.

“The American people have provided invaluable assistance in this investigation, and the FBI and our law enforcement partners are very grateful for that cooperation,” said Steven M. D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. “We still believe there is someone out there who has information they may not have realized was significant until now. We know it can be a difficult decision to report information about family or friends—but this is about protecting human life. These pipe bombs were viable devices that could have been detonated, resulting in serious injury or death. We need the public’s help to identify the individual responsible for placing these pipe bombs to ensure they will not harm themselves or anyone else.”

[…]  The FBI is asking the public to watch the videos of this person—you may recognize their gait, body language, or mannerisms. We are asking the public to come forward with any information that could assist us, including any odd or out-of-character behavior you noticed in a family member, friend, or coworker, leading up to or after January 5. Regarding the evening of January 5, we are asking for information about an individual who you may have observed matching this description in the vicinity of North Carolina Avenue SE and Folger Park between 6:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.. This person may have entered a vehicle or taken an item from a vehicle and placed it into the backpack. (more)

Battered Conservative No More


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 9, 2021 | Sundance | 434 Comments

The headline here is a twist on a great book about how to not be a participant in your abuse called “Codependent No More“.  The message directly relates to something CTH discusses frequently in both articles and in the comments section.

In order to stop being abused, you must first stop making excuses for your abuser.  Accept things as they are, not as you interpret them to be.  This tweet by Robert Barnes is a great example:

At first blush Barnes is saying something we can all agree with.  Yes, Liz Cheney is toxic to the base of support within the republican party; and yes, the GOP putting Cheney into a very visible position of leadership tells us something.  However, the visiblity of Liz Cheney is not because the GOPe are stupidly disconnected from their base, Liz Cheney is purposefully visible because the GOPe wants her there.  She is a feature not a flaw or mistake; and the GOP totally gets it.

The Republican party believes the conservative voter base of the party is the problem, not the leadership.  Please accept that as an empirical fact or we will continue to have discussions that are misinterpretations of motive.  From the mindset of the institutional Republican party YOU are the problem, not Liz Cheney.

When you finally accept that the RNC wing of the UniParty hates you, literally hates their base of voters, only then can you begin to break the cycle known as “Battered Conservative Syndrome.”

However, to break this toxic mindset we must stand firm against the abuser.  THEY are the problem, not you.  THEY work for you, not vice-versa.

The GOP leadership is supposed to represent your priorities, not carry out their priorities while managing your angst.

We The People are being abused by them.

Everything they are doing – they are doing because what they are doing is exactly what they want to do.

The institutional republican leadership are not making mistakes.  Accept who they are.

Battered Conservative No More!

If you are a regular reader of this site you are generally a person who engages in intellectual discussion on daily events and more than likely a root cause thinker. Meaning you are able to grasp events at their cause and not at their consequence.

However, for some reason, many of those who understand big picture dynamics are still comfortable sticking their heads in the sand about “motive”.  Many people are still clinging to actual beliefs around a principle of ‘rule of law’ that applies to National Leadership.

You’d better change that thinking quickly – or you’ll be asking ‘what happened’ far too late.

There seems to be a willful blindness on the part of the American people, a chosen refusal to acknowledge the implications of the unAmerican and unConstititional behaviors, actions and outcomes we are being served on a daily basis.

It can no longer be presumed to be a matter of “I can’t see what’s happening” because a whole lot of normal Americans really are clean and articulate.

I can’t see it” just doesn’t cut it anymore.

DeceptiCon Senator John Barrasso Vows to Back Lisa Murkowski


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 8, 2021 | Sundance | 135 Comments


Following in the footsteps of Mitch McConnell, Decepticon Senator John Barrasso vows to support DeceptiCon Senator Lisa Murkowski (U-DC, via Alaska) if she seeks re-election.

Murkowski voted to impeach President Trump and Trump has vowed to campaign against Murkowski in the 2022 GOP primary.

WASHINGTON DC – Sen. John Barrasso said Sunday he’d back Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski for reelection, breaking with former President Donald Trump not long after he vowed to campaign against her.

“I want to always make sure we nominate somebody who can win in November,” Barrasso, the No. 3 Senate Republican, said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” of the 2022 midterm elections. “Lisa Murkowski knows Alaska better than anybody, and she’s an incredible fighter for American energy.” The Wyoming Republican cautioned that Murkowski — who has held her seat since 2002 — has not officially declared she would seek another term, but “if she does, I’m going to support her.”

[…] Murkowski is one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial but is the only one of that cohort to face reelection next year. […] Murkowski, who succeeded her father, Frank Murkowski, in the Senate, has also proved a difficult person for Republicans to unseat. She managed to win as a write-in candidate after losing a GOP primary in 2010, and Alaska has since switched to a ranked-choice voting system that will pit candidates of all parties against one another in an open primary, with the top four vote-getters advancing to the general election.

Barrasso also said he stood by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (read more)

FOIA Release Showcases FBI Small Group Coordinating With Media To Push Russia Narrative in 2017 Exactly as Suspected


Posted originally on the conservative tree house March 8, 2021 | Sundance | 88 Comments

HatTip FOIA FAN who continues digging on the Sypgate operation, to keep the historic record accurate.

This latest affirmation of 2017 coordinated activity with media comes amid new text releases from internal conversations of the FBI small group.  Peter Ztrzok, Lisa Page, Mike Kortan (PIO), Jennifer Boone, Andrew McCabe and others.  Essentially it confirms what we previously outlined on January 10, 2017, immediately after CNN broadcast their false narrative about Trump Russia collusion.  (source):

Jim Sciutto, Evan Perez and Carl Bernstein were coordinating the attack against Trump through Jake Tapper’s show on CNN.  The FBI small group were well aware of what the CNN crew were planning.  FBI Spokesperson Mike Kortan was coordinating the narrative on behalf of the FBI team.  The FBI knew the underlying premise was entirely false and likely so too did the CNN crew as we outlined in “The Anatomy of a Political Smear.”

I’m not going to waste time going over the issues again.  {Go Deep Here – Go Deep Here}  At this point highlighting the accuracy of the past holds no value.  Suffice to say the larger American electorate, ‘We The People’, just need to train ourselves how to spot this stuff when it happens.  As long as people continue to believe in the U.S. media apparatus, it will be more difficult to break the cycle of abuse.

Our nation deserves better.  We deserve better.
