    What’s bullshit is we shouldn’t have to wait. He won the biggest upset election in the country’s history. THAT should be mandate enough for them to fall in line. Yeah, yeah, I know.

    Swamp isn’t full of alligators; it’s nasty snakes.

    • Pamela

      Blood sucking leeches, ticks and skeeters… not discounting any of the other denizens such as DC sycophants and the treacherous notmes, iwannas and lookasquirrels. I’d rather deal with death dealers than that lot.

  • Big Jim

    Like Ann Coulter said… “Why do we have to wait??”

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    “Biggest upset election in history.” ? I suggest you check your stats, Chris in NC. He won, but not by that big a margin. Just take comfort in the fact we aren’t speaking of “Madame President”, thank Gawd. Remember Trump is used to WORKING IN the system, not breaking it. “Draining the Swamp” aside, he had to work WITH Govt and Mob figures to even get the garbage picked up, let alone build skyscrapers.

    • It wasn’t the biggest margin in history, but it was the biggest upset.
      Would have been even if he’s won by a single EC vote.

      • Swansonic

        Indeed.

      • NotYetInACamp

        And that is why voting must be cleaned up to eliminate illegal voters, votes, vote theft and election theft. Trump set a group tasked with that, I believe.
        But for 1/3 of Mexico invaded and inside the USA, there would be no contest. the Democrats would have lost by a large margin. that is why the democrats are bringing in enemy asymmetric armies and military colonialists bent on conquering America. They are intentionally and criminally replacing America to destroy America by fundamental transformation and getting rid of Americans and replacing them with their so called new Americans. Genocide is a horrible thing to watch.

          I don’t expect it’s gonna be a picnic to be on the receiving end of it either. If they succeed in deposing another Repub POTUS I give the republic till 20 at most before we’re living through a full-on civil war.

            Old Codger, you’re being optimistic with your timeline. The <strike.Brownshirts… I mean Antifa and other activist/agitator groups are already militant.

      From what I have been told the mob controlled corporations delivered the Sheetrock on time, quality goods, and at a very competitive low price. They also had no problems unloading at the job site being rehabbed. As a kid I used to say that they would do much better in legitimate business. Many of them made the move.
      De Tocqueville spoke of the nation being destroyed by corruption when the cities in America became large like the big cities in Europe were back then.
      In that environment he made great buildings that helped New York, and the USA.
      My aunt, by way of marriage to my uncle, was mayor Dinkins welfare administrator. She pumped those dollars out massively, as Cloward-Piven strategy desired occur. I only spoke with her a few times, yet she was proud of pushing that money through. (Also later doing more in the carter administration) Mayor Rudy Giuliani swept that house clean.
      Trump has tried to work within the system with the people to whom he brought a great victory. They have not worked with him and have colluded and acted to destroy him with the named opposition.
      President Trump has fulfilled the karmic notion of offering to build for the benefit of all. He offered to all jointly building the dream that was possible. All would benefit.
      Now the fate of those who opposed him is not his concern. They chose their fate. Now is time to place patriotic competent Americans in all of these positions now held by those who have shown their colors. I await our President’s actions. The bad foundation must be removed down to good American bedrock. Then the next rebuilding can commence. It should be better than ever. The President needs to hire a team concentrating on properly replacing the swamp creatures with American loyalists and loyalists to President Trump goals.

      I wish I were a part of it where I know that I might do great things.

    That’s Kongress for ya….Insane Klown Posse. Both houses, both sides of the aisle.

    “We’re all floating down here…..”
    Uh huh. There’s a joke in there somewhere, but it’s late and I’m off to bed.

  • Subotai Bahadur

    I’m pretty sure that the GOPe is working as hard as they can to lose at least one House. Not being responsible for actually governing is a lot easier and just as profitable. Right now, there is no reason to vote FOR any Republican in Congress. They know it, and their persistence in making sure that condition prevails means they don’t want the votes.

    • Then what we need to do is run new, decent candidates against them. We need to take this garbage and rinse it clean!

      • The Nth Doctor

        Finding decent candidates is only half the problem; the other half is keeping them from going native as soon as they get to D.C.

    • The Nth Doctor

      Too many of the GOPe have grown far too comfortable in their role as the Washington Generals, the designated losers whose only reason for existence was to lose to the Harlem Globetrotters. That’s why many of them were secretly (or even not-so-secretly) hoping for a Hillary win, and were/are so dismayed at having gotten Trump instead; a President Hillary would have kept the game going, with the DNC Globetrotters continuing to rack up one exhibition-game win after another, while all the hapless GOPe Generals had to do was continue to put on a good show for the rubes back home, lose with style, and collect their paychecks.

  • Old Codger

    OT – somewhat

    I think I have come up with an acceptable “path to citizenship” for at least some of the illegals. We let them buy citizenship – with a coin far more dear than gold. How about if they are young enough and don’t have a criminal record – at least no worse than what is being accepted already – we let them buy their citizenship with four years of their life? They enlist in the armed forces for a 4 year hitch and if they complete it without being tried for anything that would cause them not to get an Honorable Discharge they get to take the citizenship oath. If they screw up, the day they are found guilty in a court martial (or even in a civilian court of a crime which would have kept them from enlisting) the boys from INS take custody of them, transport them to a secure holding facility, and as soon as practical they are deported to their country of origin. If they show up here post deportation they get 10 years in one of those “resort communities” operated by the federal bureau of prisons where they get ample opportunity to become highly proficient at turning boulders into sand. If their offense (civilian or military) involves jail time the folks from INS meet them at the gate of the pen for deportation. If at any time they wish no longer to be in the armed forces, they can get out with just a little paperwork – to be met at the main gate by INS. All of this will be detailed in iron clad language in their enlistment contract.

    I’m still cogitating and fleshing out the details but what do you guys think of the idea?

    • NotYetInACamp

      There is merit to parts of it.

      Get rid of the chain migration across the board first.

      No follower of Sharia law can be a citizen. If someone is a Muslim, they advocate replacing the US Constitution with Sharia Law.

      • GWB

        Not all are really supportive of sharia. (I know, that makes them not-good muslims in the eyes of islam.) I would be happy to have them publicly renounce sharia and jihad before allowing them entry to the US.

        • Unca Walt

          “I would be happy to have them publicly renounce sharia and jihad before allowing them entry to the US.”

          That won’t work, bro. They are SUPPOSED to lie to the infidels, remember? Sez so in the koran.

    • Mort

      Since under Taqiyya, Muslims are required to lie,
      I would be concerned about more Major Hasans,
      though he wasn`t too secretive about his Muslim
      loyalty.

    • WayneM

      One downside I can see is using military service as a vetting is that military service usually involves learning to be an effective warrior. So you could be creating a well trained fifth column.

    • Milo Mindbender

      We already allow undocumented to enlist, and take the oath of citizenship. I have. I issue with this, after their enlistment they are now on the radar, and will be burdened with the same obligations the rest of us bear. I have known several who followed this path and they have a higher than native success rate due to the military background as well as a true appreciation of the whole process. They also end up being very anti illegal immigration due to being stock holders instead of shoplifters in the system.

    • armedandsafe

      Some of what you propose, Old Codger, is already in place. “Peacetime Military Service: Under INA Section 328, persons who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces (including active duty, reserves, or national guard), can file for naturalization based on their current or prior U.S. military service. The requirements for eligibility are that the applicant must have served honorably or have separated from the service under honorable conditions, have completed one year or more of military service, and be a legal permanent resident at the time of his or her examination by USCIS on the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.” https://www.thebalance.com/becoming-a-citizen-in-the-u-s-military-3356945

    Jan. 20, 2017 was mere weeks ago. Very much has already been accomplished by Alpha despite all the internecine back-stabbing and all the subversive “Resistance” from an utterly deranged DNC/MSM complex. So far, this Deplorable has been enjoying the show.

  • Bill G

    It would be nice if there was a way to avoid the multiple primary challenges such as the ones that let Our Friend Mitch get re-elected.
    Although I read that he was responsible for at least one of them.
    The evil clowns of both sides need to go. (Although Pelosi is providing excellent comic relief these days.)

    I had the privilege of taking a young man from Honduras from our FOB in Afghanistan to Kabul. This young American Soldier and 38 of his Brother and Sister legal aliens raised their right hands and swore to uphold and defend our Constitution and become lawful citizens. The American Ambassador and a 4 Star General were there. That was a GOOD DAY!

    Oh Goody! They’re all lined up in a row.
    Can we play Whack-A-Mole now…

  • JTC

    Those reptiles swept into the sewer or climbing out of it? Both. It’s on us to be sure the flood of the freshwater cascade keeps”it” there with the gators and other vermin of the swamp.

    And remember the next election is not ’20 but ’18 and will be critical to this cause. Not sure about Peoria but in Fla Rick Scott has been a conservative rock for seven years much to the surprise of many including me. His potential successor has the experience and credibility to be even more so, a redneck boy from up the road in Bartow farm country. And he’s young, photogenic, and well-spoken…a solid “keep” on the governor roster in a state that has historically teetered. There are more like him coming in state and fed races, gotta stay focused on shoring up the foundation that Trumpism rests on.

    On the path to citizenship, it is not a new idea for mandatory service to provide for it, but is very problematic as others have said creating a potential trained enemy within but more troublesome is it would focus on young males, of course the mostly likely group to be seeded and/or radicalized against us.

    And of course there is and has for many years been a financial path to more or less permanent residency known as H-1B; got the dough to invest in business that can be shown or appear to increase employment? You’re in. Used mostly to bring in tech workers so not necessarily a boon to American employment, but possibly to the overall economy; NPR just did a piece on that recently. Certainly not fair, but it hasn’t been much of a problem though it certainly has the potential to be if infiltrators are sponsored by the enemy, and Trump is on it, already halting the expedited process…one reason why Silicon Valley types hate him.

  • Oliver Heaviside

    In light of recent developments re: disclosing classified intel to the Russians, I am beginning the think we have an out-of-control egomaniac in the WH. Don’t tell me Hillary did it, or anyone else. It’s a crime even if some get away with it.

    Worse, though, it seems to reflect an egocentrism that insists on its owner having the biggest disk in the room, no matter the cost of proving it. This will cost all of us, dearly, in the long run.

    One often does well, in a negotiation, to let the other guy think he “won”. Trump seems incapble of doing that.

    This is not to say that I disagree with all of his policies, etc – it is a commentary on an individual’s maturity and fitness for office.

    • JTC

      Oliver, I haven’t seen anything about what exactly was discussed, but letting the other guys think they “won” something is likely exactly what he is doing.

      The fact that like the “tapes” of Comey, DT outed this in a tweet leads me to believe it is just another of his very successful intentional diversionary tactics, playing into the media’s obsession with Trump/Russian “collusion” as they are so fond of saying, and probably actually providing a little disinformation to the Russkies as well.

      Don’t buy into it.

    • NotYetInACamp

      So far the complaints I have seen have been about matters already known publicly and often reported in the paid for and bought mainstream press.

      I recall that JFK used to drive the CIA nuts by turning out to be the source of news that occurred while JFK was in discussion with some diplomat at a State event. Conversations by the President oft put information into the zeitgeist in the give and take of diplomatic conversation with peers and others.

      It isn’t like President Trump gave the Russians and the world the exact time it takes our military to respond after a nuclear missile launch order has been given?
