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.

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.

Don´t Paint It Black on Thanksgiving Day

On this Thanksgiving Day, I have lots to be thankful for. I live in a wonderful country, have a wonderful family, and enjoy freedoms that many in this world do not. This Thanksgiving, I will sit down to a beautiful meal prepared by those I love. God has given me much to be thankful for, and I am grateful. I wonder if those on the left will be celebrating this day in the same spirit. It seems that no matter how much they have or how many freedoms they enjoy, for progressives, it is never enough. For them, the world

Looks like CNN´s New Day hosts are in fierce competition to see who can be more sneeringly insulting to the Trumps. As we noted, John Berman yesterday suggested that President Trump is "full of ´schiff.´"Today, it was Alisyn Camerota´s turn. Reacting to the news that Ivanka Trump used personal email, Camerota turned to former Trump aide Marc Short and snidely asked: "Marc, at Trump rallies, they chant ´lock her up, lock her up.´ Who are they referring to? Hillary, or Ivanka?" (Video) Camerota´s mere words don´t do justice to the degree to which she dripped with sarcasm while trying to

That will include a six-figure web ad buy on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram along with a full-page ad in USA Today and other Gannett newspapers outlining a political platform, a revamped TomSteyer.com, and the announcement of five town halls

Rep.-elect Veronica Escobar (D-TX) on Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC discussed immigration, declaring El Paso, TX, as “the new Ellis Island.” “El Paso, Texas, is very unique and very special,” Escobar shared. “We are right on the U.S./Mexico border, so my community has been on the front lines of family separations, we’ve been witnesses to the family separations, we’ve been witnesses to customs border protection agents preventing asylum seekers from stepping foot on American soil and we have been on the front lines of wrapping our arms around refugees who need support and help, a place to stay, a meal

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled on Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has 30 days to answer additional questions about her email scandal. The decision comes after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit to obtain additional information from Clinton and Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat John Bentel. The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public. The lawsuit was part of a broader Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that came about in October 2016 when Clinton refused to

Recent polls are revealing what many conservatives have contended for a while: that the media is decidedly liberal. Several recent media surveys have noted the tilt to the left as Investor’s Business Daily reported in a piece entitled, “Media Bias: Pretty Much All Of Journalism Now Leans Left, Study Shows.” (Photo) The editorial noted that it is “now pretty much a fact that journalism is one of the most left-wing of all professions.” “The profound leftward ideological bias of the Big Media is the main reason why America now seems saturated with ‘fake news.’ Journalists, besotted with their own ideology,

As the opposition forces against Nancy Pelosi´s bid for House Speaker may be starting to see fissures in the ranks, some fierce holdouts have made their distaste for the establishment Democrat known. According to Fox News, a total of 16 U.S. House Democrats circulated a letter on Monday declaring themselves "Never Nancy" while calling for "new leadership" without saying who that new leader should be. The letter cordially begins by thanking Pelosi for her years of service as House Speaker before calling for a "change" in leadership."We are thankful to Leader Pelosi for her years of service to our Country

CNN seems to have forgotten the old adage, “Be careful what you wish for.” After filing suit over the revocation of Jim Acosta’s hard pass to the White House and winning, that network’s media beat reporter is upset. Speaking on CNN’s Newsroom, Brian Stelter seems certain that danger lurks in the new open and transparent rules provided by the White House in response to the judge’s demand for due process on decisions over revocation of access to press conferences or the White House. Joe DePaolo of Mediaite writes: Brian Stelter stated his belief that nothing has been resolved, and the

Jim Acosta, the chief White House correspondent for CNN, told the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia last week, in a written declaration delivered under penalty of perjury, that he “politely” questioned President Donald Trump at a November 7 press conference. Acosta submitted the sworn declaration, which is dated Nov. 13, as part of the lawsuit he and CNN have brought against President Trump, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and other White House officials for revoking his White House reporter’s “hard pass.” (Video) “I, Abilio James Acosta, hereby declare under penalty of perjury the following,” Acosta said

WASHINGTON- Cat lovers know when their precious kitties groom themselves, their tongues are fairly scratchy. Utilizing high-tech scans and other tricks, scientists are now learning how those sandpapery tongues help cats get clean and stay cool. The secret: Tiny hooks that spring up on the tongue — with scoops built in to carry saliva deep into all that fur. A crew of mechanical engineers reported the findings Monday, and claim they’re more than a curiosity. They could lead to inventions for pets and people. “Their tongue could help us apply fluids, or clean carpets, or apply medicine” to hairy skin,

California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump´s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

Justices Neil Gorsuch and Sonia Sotomayor jointly dissented Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up a case concerning drunk driving and the Constitution’s confrontation clause, an apparent first for the divergent pair. Monday’s dissenting opinion from Gorsuch and Sotomayor keeps with the tendency of criminal procedure issues to scramble the Court’s usual alliances. The case was occasioned in April 2015 when an Alabama woman named Vanessa Stuart, who was driving while intoxicated, collided with another vehicle on Interstate 10. The second vehicle careened off the highway into a wooded area — its driver, Tiffany Howell, died before

"If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House," Ocasio-Cortez said on Saturday while on a call with Justice Democrats.

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

An outrageous discussion unfolded on CNN recently focused on how most white women who voted for President Donald Trump must be “racist.”Only one of the all-female panel hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon pushed back in the discussion on why the president resonates with most white women, delivering a blistering take-down of the argument that white women who have a “deep investment in white supremacy” voted for Trump. Lemon began by asking liberal contributor Kirsten Powers “why white women support Donald Trump in spite of or perhaps because of his policies and his tone,” during Friday’s “CNN Tonight.” “People will say

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was

Sparked by his narrow defeat in a Texas Senate race, Beto O’Rourke is scrambling the 2020 presidential primary field, freezing Democratic donors and potential campaign staffers in place as they await word of his plans. Even prior to O’Rourke’s meteoric rise, many Democratic fundraisers had approached the large number of 2020 contenders with apprehension, fearful of committing early to one candidate. But the prospect of a presidential bid by O’Rourke, whose charismatic Senate candidacy captured the party’s imagination, has suddenly rewired the race.

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after
