    J.P. Morgan Boss Jamie Dimon says there will be 4% growth this year, his chief economist says 2-2.5%.

    3% is key. Anything more is gravy.

      LOL. Trump has EVERYONE’S head spinning.

      Tucker thinks he’s sold out.

      Rush thinks he’s playing the game.

      Haberman doubles down on “He’s an idiot, see? He doesn’t know that any form of ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ HAS TO include blanket amnesty, because we said so.”

      Tucker must not have heard the whole thing. I did, and Brit Hume just came on and filled him in. McCarthy said to Trump a ‘clean’ DACA bill means JUST DACA and Trump said oh, no no no, we have to have a wall. And he’s tweeted just that since then.

      None of these people, including, especially, Haberman, seem to understand what Trump just did letting the cameras in there.

      If Ann Coulter doesn’t stop screeching I don’t know whose brains I’m going to blow out, hers or mine.

      As for Feinstein, I’m really curious as to why she released Glenn Simpson’s testimony. Trump’s lawyer has just filed a lawsuit against Fusion GPS and Buzzfeed for defamation. Discovery should be fascinating.

      @ eaglesoars:

      I think Trump’s going to get everything, including an end to chain migration, with the exception of deportation of non-criminal “Dreamers.”

      I think that’s a giant win, but sadly there are many on our side who are having a hard time accepting that.

      I also think that DREAMers will be given serious stipulations, and won’t become citizens for some time.

      @ Deplorable Bumr50:

      what Ive been told — 3rd hand – is that the deal will be Trump gets the wall with a 2-yr delay on doing anything about DACA. The question is – will there be a gov’t shutdown? 2 wks ago, it could have made Trump look bad. After that brilliant publicity ploy today, I don’t think so. Not to mention – d id you see any sign of early onset dementia? Wait till Joe and Mika have to deal with this performance. HA!

      It doesn’t matter what I think. What matters is what they’ll show on TV.

      I know that many are probably approaching 40 by now. That won’t be where the cameras will be focused.

      I think it’s a good deal if chain migration is ended, all criminal illegals are deported, a wall is built, the visa lottery program is ended, and moving forward immigration is based on realistic need.

      It appears that Dianne Feinstein released the transcripts of the closed session testimony of the Fusion GPS boss so that subsequent witnesses can ensure they line their testimonies up perfectly.

      A leaked memo circulated by the Center for American Progress (CAP) referred to DREAMers—undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. at a young age—as a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success”, according to The Daily Caller.

      The memo was co-written by former Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri. It urged friends of the party to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

      Meh… Close enough I guess. 3.7% growth is the optimal growth rate. Based on the “Rule of 72” and traditional cyclical expansion and contraction rates.

      And the possible reason for THAT is – the entire intelligence community is about to be brought down if Sundance is right. Do not think others aren’t reading this stuff also, there is a reason Feinstein et. al., are worried about ‘getting stories straight’. Sundance has been posting on twitter, but at this point is afraid twitter will ban Last Refuge, so he’s putting it up now. If he’s right – THERE WAS NO FISA WARRANT.

      Stop using the words “FISA Warrant” and start saying: “Was the DNC/Clinton campaign-funded dossier used to obtain Trump FISA “Search Query Authority”? There were no Title III “warrants” There were only FISA-702 “query approvals”, which gets conflated w/ term “Warrants”.

      If I’m keeping this straight, FISA-702 query approval is not FBI, it’s NSA and that’s what clued in Mike Rogers.

      South Korea’s president said Wednesday that President Trump “deserves big credit” for renewed talks between South and North Korea, and that Mr. Trump has offered to negotiate personally with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

      “It could be a resulting work of the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure,” President Moon Jae-in told reporters. “I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks.”

      Tomorrow’s controversy of the day:

      Trump attacks protections for immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries
      President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed granting entry to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.

      “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.

      Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday. The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt they help the United States economically.

      In addition, the president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal, these people said.

      “Why do we need more Haitians?” Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting. “Take them out.”

      Lawmakers were taken aback by the comments, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) had proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and then prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.

      A White House spokesman defended Trump’s position on immigration without directly addressing his remarks. White House officials did not dispute the account.

      This is going to be one of the critical docs. From Judicial Watch, bookmark it, print it, whatever.

      All those 702s that got Mike Rogers curiosity were from the FBI. FBI had hired subcontractors, Fusion, allowing them access to raw intel, and forwarding their requests for 702 unmasking queries.

      Here’s the doc, start bottom page 83.

      Here’s a very quick twitter discussion/outline to use as an intro

      That cut Fusion off, and miracle of miracle, they get hired by Hillary! Enter the ‘dossier’.

      this is going to take years to come out. The only way to get to the bottom publicly is to slowly undermine the credibility of Obama until the halo is gone

Years ago the Stars and Stripes ran a story about the Podesta Group buying a house somewhere – I think it was Dubai – that everyone assumed was going to be for the Obamas. There’s a money trail somewhere whether the house story is a ‘thing’ or not. The Obama’s have way too much money for just a book deal or 2. And these complaints about his library – none of these details are new. Why is the bitching starting now?

      oh yeah. If all those shithole countries aren’t really shitholes and are really very nice and we shouldn’t be so arrogant about how great we are because those countries are just as great – then I guess we can send all those people back to where they came from because where they came from are really great countries too. Even if the State Dept DID issue a travel warning about Haiti.


      and ain’t nobody talking about Michael Wolff’s book no more.

      Yeah, Obama. He was probably “just following orders.” There is an Eichmann in this fustercluck, for sure. Guess I’ll wait for him/(her) to squeal (like I have a choice…).

      @ Daffy Duck:

      I think “Eichmann” is incorrect in this reference. (Who am I thinking ?)

      But, he hung, so good enough.

      State Sen. Kwame Raoul, D-Chicago, who born in Chicago to Haitian immigrants, said Trump’s comments show his “ignorance of the contributions Haitians have made to this country, as well as other immigrant nations
      @ Chicago Sun Times
      Yeah Haiti is great! The whole place is a slum from what I observed. This dude said that he would no accept Trumps apology. And I will not accept my Heisman Trophy. that is just as likely as this chump getting an apology.

      The more information about the abuses of the Obama Administration during the election year and the criminal activity of the Clintons and the Clinton campaign makes me wonder if the real polling leading up to the election was showing that indeed Trump could win those battleground states, that he was indeed polling better than the figures released to the press, and the whole “Hillary has a 99% certainty to win” headlines were in some ways designed to depress the Trump vote as much as they could. “Yeah, you like him, but believe us, he’s not going to win so if it’s not nice outside, stay home and watch Dr. Phil instead.”

      Except, you know, we DIDN’T.

      very kind, but that honor belongs to the people doing all this research w/o remuneration or acknowledgement. Last Refuge, Katica,chillum are just a few of the online warriors. The people we do know doing this as a profession are few and far between, Sara Carter, John Solomon. Pulitzers aren’t enough for these people.

      @ RIX:

      Dear Kwame: Since you want to expound on the virtues of the Haitians currently living in the U.S., please Google “Emmanuel Constant” – a dirtbag that fled Haiti and was allowed in the U.S. He tortured and raped women in Haiti under government sanction, was let in by Bill Clinton and was only jailed AFTER he committed a mortgage fraud scam and thus we were able to file a civil lawsuit against him.

      I worked on this case. I still think that in a 40-year career, it was my finest hour.

      @ Deplorable Barbarian:

      threadkiller! 😉

      three NEW Trump attacks today. The first is small and a bit under the radar concerning Eric Trump, purporting to show a fundraiser for his charity used all the money paying costs for the fundraiser – to a Trump property. It’s on twitter someplace, just file it away in your head. The 2nd attack is a new book called “It’s even worse than you think” by someone named Cay. He writes that Trump was estranged from his children until they landed on Daddy’s payroll and that if you’re in town to conduct gov’t business it’s widely understood you have to stay at the Trump Hotel (not true, btw, Hubby just participated in a ‘thing’ people had to come into town for, and nobody stayed there and nobody cared). The third is the one getting the screaming headlines.

      Trump’s lawyer funneled $130,000 to ex-porn star just before 2016 election to buy her silence on claims she had sexual encounter with now president

      She denies it totally, no minced words

      that’s all I got, I’ve been busy. Except to not that the timing of Ecuador granting Assange citizenship might be of interest. The CIA wants him dead. Might be a bit more difficult to accomplish now.

      @ eaglesoars:

      The porn star allegation floated around last year, was debunked, but hey, let’s revive it – after all, nothing ELSE is working.

      As to the kids, I seriously doubt any of those allegations. I do love how these sleazeball writers hide behind the Sullivan decision thinking it shields them from libel.

      And I imagine Trump DONATED the golf course use to Eric’s charity. But the expenses may have involved security, etc. and other services that are not covered by the Trump largesse. Of course, it pales in comparison to the malfeasance vis-a-vis the BILLIONS the Clintons ripped off from Haiti. That the MSM seems to care very little about.

      Just a thought, never let Durbin anywhere near the White House, he’s a rat. I knew that it was him that was
      him before it was reported. Durbin is also bashing Trump for using the term “chain migration” To Durbin this
      now suggests African slaves in chains. Seriously?
      My senators name is Richard, but he will always be a Dick to me.
