Big Club Makes It’s Move–Chinese Funded
U.S. Lobbyists Move For “Public Fight”
Over Tariffs….

Conservative Tree House, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/12/2018 4:25:03 PM

It was virtually guaranteed to happen, the only unknown was the actual timing of when they would execute their self-interested plan. Remember, there are trillions at stake and the multinationals will not give up their power, influence and control over the U.S. economy.(Photo) The media are reporting on a “group” of lobbyists “uniting” in a common strategy to oppose President Trump, ahead of the mid-terms, based on Chinese tariffs. Those who have followed this “group”, also known as “the big club”, for decades know full well the lobbyists are financed through Wall Street multinational corporations and foreign money (hint: China).

Trust Trump realizes he could get a lot more with some accommodation than the current hard line approach.
Ease up on the implementation time line, and acknowledge there will be continued negotiations through Chinese New Year (Feb. 5 2019).

That will push the folks away a bit, and lift the markets, which is what Wall Street really cares about anyhow.

Need to get the Chinese the hell out of our country, in all ways.

This is the same group that advocates for illegals, and stops any progress from fixing the immigration policies.

Funding business connected lobbyists and greedy politicians is only the first step in a Chinese long term master plan to eventually purchase America.

When the Chinese government decides to make a trade move the entire country of China jumps in line, while anytime President Trump makes a trade move that will benefit all of America, the Uni-party segment the US Government and all sorts of special interest groups oppose Trump´s move.

That weakens the USA position when negotiating with a committed nation like China, especially when the international media reports that the Never-Trump Republicans and the liberal and socialist Democrats, effectively the DC Uni-party will not support Trump´s negotiating position.

A North Carolina woman was rescued from killer floods after social media users responded to her desperate plea for help during Hurricane Florence. Breeanna Perry - along with her disabled mother Tameka and grandmother Peggy - realized they were trapped in their New Bern home at 11.30pm Thursday night when they had to turn off power and therefore contact with others as water levels rose inside their property. While they had an attic to stay safe in for the time being, Perry´s phone battery was draining fast and so she used the power of Twitter and Facebook at 1.30am Friday

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted earlier this summer that more than nine months into the federal Russia probe, investigators had found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. "I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn´t answer the question," Page told lawmakers during a closed-door deposition in July, according to Fox News. The transcript shows Page stopped mid-answer, asking to consult with her counsel. "It still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing, probably not nothing nothing, as we probably knew more than that by that

CFPUA announced water will be cut off in 48 hours unless they can secure a fuel source.With floodwaters continuing to rise around the Wilmington region, impassable roads made it difficult for emergency personnel to respond to calls Sunday and led to a dire warning from Wilmington’s water utility.With flooding on Interstate 40 between Wilmington and Interstate 95, as well as on Brunswick County’s main arteries, the city is effectively “cut off,” the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority said in a release.

Susan Collins, R-Maine, if she votes to confirm President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. Presuming to speak for “most Americans,” King tweeted that people are “angry” over how the conformation “is being railroaded through.” “IF Susan Collins votes to confirm Kavanaugh, and IF she runs for re-election—two bigs ifs—she will be defeated.

The world´s largest ocean cleanup is now underway in the Pacific Ocean, aiming to collect up to 150,000 pounds of trash in its first year and eventually tackle the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Ocean Cleanup, a non profit spearheaded by Dutch inventor Boyan Slat, deployed its ambitious $20million system on Saturday from the San Francisco Bay for several weeks of testing before it´s officially set into motion. The project placed a 2,000-foot unmanned floating boom into the water, designed to curve into the shape of a U as it´s pushed by the currents, and like ´Pac-Man´ eat up trash and

Republicans push to give your
savings account a tax cut
Washington Examiner, by Joseph Lawler    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/16/2018 10:34:32     Post Reply
House Republicans, having cut taxes on business income and individual earnings, are now looking to cut them on savings, through new universal savings accounts. The House GOP attached the accounts, allowing individuals to save up to $2,500 annually on a tax-privileged basis, to what they are calling “Tax Reform 2.0" — a permanent extension of the individual-side tax cuts included in the December tax law. House Republicans advanced the legislation through the Ways and Means Committee last week. The legislative package isn’t expected to reach President Trump’s desk this year, but the inclusion of the savings accounts sets up a

It was recently revealed that the home of Jerry Brown, Hollywood, Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris is now the most poverty stricken state in the country. Anyone who has seen the sprawling homeless encampments of greater Los Angeles and San Francisco probably knew this would be the outcome. The Sacramento Bee reports: California’s poverty rate is still the highest in the nation, despite state efforts. Newly released federal estimates show California’s poverty rate remained the highest in the nation, despite a modest fall, and the state’s falling uninsured rate slowed for the first time since before Medicaid expansion.

MEMPHIS — " We must not be afraid to be free," Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black famously said in a dissent defending free expression. That appeal is germane today, especially on college campuses, professor Daniel Cullen argues. Cullen, a professor of political science at Rhodes College, is working to engage liberal arts college students on the critical importance of the First Amendment and free speech. It´s part of a program at 30 colleges and universities across the country who will be marking Constitution Day on September 17, the 231st anniversary of its signing. “It is a critical moment in American

Carter Page is obviously at the center of the fraudulent FISA application submitted by FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. The FBI and DOJ constructed the FISA application to gain a Title-1 surveillance warrant on Carter Page; and by extension, the Trump Campaign and all who were in contact with Page. Within the application the FBI/DOJ specifically stated that Carter Page was an agent of a foreign government and used the Steele Dossier to back-up the majority of their claims. However, Carter Page was never indicted or arrested despite the FBI’s claims of certainty within the

A prototype of a censored search engine that links users´ queries to their personal phone numbers is the result of a collaboration between Google and China. This technology would make it easier for the Communist Party of China to monitor people and what they are searching, the Intercept reported Friday. Dragonfly, the code name for the new search engine, was designed for Android devices. The search engine would remove information that the Chinese government deems sensitive, like content regarding political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and protests, in something called a censorship blacklist. The blacklist includes the terms “human

Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Since Wednesday, she has watched as that bare-bones version of her story became public without her name or her consent, drawing a blanket denial from Kavanaugh and roiling a nomination that just days ago seemed all but certain to succeed.Now, Ford has

He was at a desk in the background as the cable channel spoke to Coast Guard Commanding Officer Capt John Reed in Charleston, South Carolina.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway´s husband, George Conway, took aim at the president on Twitter Friday over President Trump´s criticism of his predecessor, former President Obama. In a tweet, George Conway, a conservative lawyer, criticized Trump for mocking Obama for a 2008 gaffe in which he mistakenly said he visited "57 states" during his first presidential run. "When President Obama said that he has been to ´57 States,´ very little mention in Fake News Media. Can you imagine if I said that...story of the year!" Trump had written in his tweet.

On the eve of a vote on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, Sen. Dianne Feinstein has produced a letter from an unnamed woman who accuses him of sexual misconduct when she and Kavanaugh were in high school. Ronan Farrow — a journalist who has gained notoriety for his investigative reporting on sexual predators, including disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and CBS executive Leslie Moonves — worked with another writer at the New Yorker to report on the last-ditch effort by Democrats to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Christianity is quite anathema to the left, given the energy with which it seeks to erase it from the public square. But for Chelsea Clinton, who´s always a little out there with her logic, it has its uses. Speaking for Sirius radio, she effectively declared abortion rights ´Christian,´ by claiming that efforts to end them are ´un-Christian.´ According to the Daily Wire, which has the video: "How do you keep going in the hopes that your daughter doesn´t have to have this fight?" asked intersectional feminist and Signal Boost co-host Jess McIntosh, referencing the "fight" to keep abortion legal.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has no plans to delay a confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is scheduled for Thursday. “It’s disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July. If Ranking Member Feinstein and other Committee Democrats took this claim seriously, they should have brought it to the full Committee’s attention much earlier. Instead, they said nothing during two joint phone calls with the nominee in August, four days of lengthy public

After an initial dip immediately after the news broke, Nike’s NKE, +0.02% online sales actually grew 31% from the Sunday of Labor Day weekend through Tuesday, as compared with a 17% gain recorded for the same period of 2017, according to San Francisco–based Edison Trends.

Woodward said he looked for it "hard" and yet turned up nothing. "So let’s set aside the Comey firing (snip).... Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?" Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward. "I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard," Woodward answered.
