May 30, 2020

SpaceX blasts into new era of human spaceflight

The spacecraft took off Saturday afternoon from the same launch pad at Cape Canaveral, Florida, that was used during the Apollo missions to the moon a half-century ago.

The flight ushers in a new era in commercial space travel and marks the first time NASA has launched astronauts from U.S. soil in nearly a decade.

WALTZ - "Bring this supply chain back to America"

Representative Michael Waltz (R.CD-6) has introduced a bill to reduce U.S. dependence on the Chinese Communist Party for essential minerals used in electronics, healthcare, defense systems, renewable energy and other key sectors of American life. Of the 35 minerals rated by the United States Geological Survey as critical, 14 are imported at a rate of 100%.

Congressman Waltz stated, "As coronavirus has unfortunately demonstrated, if China can threaten to cut off our pharmaceutical supply, they can do the same with their supply of rare earth minerals. China currently has a stronghold on the supply of these natural resources.”

The proposed legislation will help bring the supply chain back to American soil and reverse decades of terrible trade deals that left our manufacturing base in ruins, our workers unemployed and their jobs sent overseas. That seismic shift of wealth from the United States to foreign nations ended on January 20, 2017 with the inauguration of Donald Trump. His America First agenda had restored our economy, driving down unemployment numbers to historic lows. Then in presidential election year 2020 came the virus from China.
Whether the release of COVID-19 was deliberate or a mistake doesn't matter anymore. The damage is done and we've been hit hard. Now we must rebuild our economy. It's time to make America great again.

"This is how the Mueller probe was weaponized to mislead the American people"

The “Obstruction of Justice Trap” – Former AAG Matt Whitaker Confirms Mueller Probe Was Used As Weapon to Cover Coup Effort

Within an interesting interview conducted by Jan Jekielek of Epoch Times,

Former AAG Matt Whitaker confirms what CTH long suspected. The Mueller investigation was used by corrupt interests within the special counsel’s office to threaten any/all executive branch and congressional officials with “obstruction of justice” charges if they revealed any exculpatory or counter-narrative information during the Mueller probe.


Whitaker describes this as the “obstruction of justice trap.”

When We The People are no longer fearful .. petty tyrants no longer control U.S.

Face of Democrat Party - Michigan GovGretchen Whitmer

They represent us; WE are the people.

The power of government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. “from the consent of the governed.” When the people lead, the politicians are forced to follow. Without implied consent the municipal, state or federal government has no power. None.

Liberty is inherent. The removal of liberty requires consent.

Those who construct the systems of control need to weaponize fear. Fear of arrest; fear of losing a business; fear of losing liberty or financial security. Local, regional and state officials rely on fear. As soon as we the people are no longer fearful, the control ends.

It is the responsibility of each of us to stand, defiantly if needed, and support a President who is waging a battle against multiple adversaries on our behalf. 

Stand means be visible.  Stand means let your voice be heard. Stand means telling your republican representatives what your expectations are.

Democrat Governor Cooper hints that Republican National Convention might be limited ... due to China Virus


President Donald Trump said Tuesday night, June 2nd, that he is moving the Republican National Convention 

Charlotte Observer

‘Within A Week’ — Trump Gives North Carolina Governor An Ultimatum On Republican National Convention

“It’s a massive expenditure, and we need to know. Within a week. Certainly we have to know. If he feels that he’s not going to do it, all he has to do is tell us and we will have to pick another location.”

Trump threatens to move RNC out of North Carolina

.Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August. Unfortunately, Democrat Governor @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed full attendance in the Arena.
In other words, we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space.
Plans are being made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August. They must be immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied.
If not, we will be reluctantly forced to find, with all of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. This is not something I want to do. Thank you, and I LOVE the people of North Carolina!

Vice President Mike Pence shared some more insight into Trump’s tweets about the possibility of moving the convention.

“It’s an issue we’ve been talking about because these national convection conventions literally take many months to organize and prepare, and you know, there are states around the country — we think of Texas, we think of Florida, Georgia --

.. the last two states I visited last week that have made tremendous progress on reopening their communities and reopening their economies, and I think the president is absolutely intent on ensuring that as we see our nation continue to make steady progress on putting the coronavirus epidemic in the past, that come this August, we’ll be able to come together in a safe and responsible venue and renominate President Donald trump for four more years,” Pence stated.

He continued, “But what you’re hearing the president say today is just a very reasonable request of the governor of North Carolina."

Memorial Day: Honor those who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces

In 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell was asked a somewhat long and involved question by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, which ended with the following interrogative:

“And would you not agree, as a very significant political figure in the United States, Colin, that America, at the present time, is in danger of relying too much upon the hard power and not enough upon building the trust from which the soft values, which of course all of our family life that actually at the bottom, when the bottom line is reached, is what makes human life valuable?”

In response to the former Archbishop’s question, Secretary Powell said this:

“There is nothing in American experience or in American political life or in our culture that suggests we want to use hard power. But what we have found over the decades is that unless you do have hard power — and here I think you’re referring to military power — then sometimes you are faced with situations that you can’t deal with.

It was not soft power that freed Europe. It was hard power. And what followed immediately after hard power? Did the United States ask for dominion over a single nation in Europe? No.

Soft power came in the Marshall Plan. Soft power came with American GIs who put their weapons down once the war was over and helped all those nations rebuild. We did the same thing in Japan.

So our record of living our values and letting our values be an inspiration to others I think is clear. And I don’t think I have anything to be ashamed of or apologize for with respect to what America has done for the world.

We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years ….and put wonderful young men and women at risk, many of whom have lost their lives, and we have asked for nothing except enough ground to bury them in.”

"It all comes from the top. They could have easily stopped the plague, but they didn't!"

President Trump: ‘I have a chance to break the deep state’

 President Trump says he is making inroads in taming Washington’s permanent bureaucracy, which he likes to call the “deep state.”

‘It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country."

President Trump at a May 22 news conference
May 23, 2020 – 4:55pm

“What am I doing? I’m fighting the deep state,” Trump said in an exclusive interview with Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson. “I’m fighting the swamp…If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country.”

In the wide-ranging interview with Full Measure set to air Sunday, Trump also addressed the debate over whether religious services should remain closed. Calling them “essential services,” he says it’s time for them to open.

Sharyl Attkisson: There are churches and religious leaders, New Jersey, Chicago, California who have said they’re going to defy if necessary, state orders and they’re going to open back up. Should they do that?

President Trump: I think they’re going to be in great shape. We’re coming out with CDC probably today. In fact, right after this particular magnificent interview that you’re doing… I’m going to be reading an order from CDC, but we’re going to be requesting that they open. I think they’re going to be calling it an essential service, and it is an essential service, and we want to get our churches back open…When you look at some of the things that they consider an essential service, but they don’t consider religious freedom essential service. Now the ministers, the pastors, the rabbis, the anybody you want to say, the religious leaders, all religious leaders, they want to keep the people safe too. But when you see that they’re arresting people and they’re in parking lots in cars with windows, spas and the people are being arrested, it’s a disgrace. Honestly, it’s a disgrace.”

Shortly after the interview Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidelines on how religious institutions can safely reopen. Reopenings are still under the control of individual states.

Also addressed in the interview: the controversy over using the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus prevention or treatment. Trump says he just finished a two week course of of the drug for preventive purposes after two White House staffers were diagnosed with coronavirus. “I’m still here, to the best of my knowledge,” he says.

The president also talked about the strengths and weaknesses of his political opponent in the presidential race, Joe Biden, his own Twitter practices, the new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, and the scandal over FBI surveillance abuses.

“That was the insurance policy,” Trump tells Attkisson, speaking of the FBI’s targeting of the Trump campaign in 2016 and the transition team in early 2017. “[They thought ‘Clinton is] going to win but just in case she doesn’t, we have an insurance policy.’ And now I beat them on the insurance policy. And now they’re being exposed.”

Agencies In The Media….

Long term CTH readers will not find this surprising, but it’s nice to see it starting to be said/admitted openly:


State Dept. and Defense Dept. embeds primarily operate through CNN.  CIA embeds primarily operate through The Washington Post. FBI embeds primarily work through The New York Times; and Politico carries a blend.  Fox is the controlled opposition.

Researchers who travel the deep weeds of U.S. politics have noted this very predictable pattern has been very visible for well over two decades.


Trump blasts China for 'massive disinformation'

"I still thought there were some fundamental rules of fairness .. I was wrong"

The following exclusive excerpt is from Matthew Whitaker’s new book,Above the Law: The Inside Story of How the Justice Department Tried to Subvert President Trump.

 I had been Acting Attorney General for fifteen days ..

.. at the time of that Thanksgiving Day press conference, and I had been presumed guilty—of bias against the Mueller investigation, of being a constitutional “nobody” (since acting cabinet heads don’t require Senate confirmation under the 1998 Federal Vacancies Reform Act), and because I had provided very little legal advice to a company that no longer existed and that later had fallen afoul of the law (for reasons completely unrelated to my advice).

Very quickly, I learned that if you are a political appointee in President Trump’s administration, the media and congressional Democrats, among others, immediately presume you must be guilty of something and will stop at nothing to tear you down.

If you are a “career official,” on the other hand, with no evidence of support for the President, then you are regarded as someone free of malice, a modestly paid civil servant toiling with only the nation’s best intentions at heart. In the press, “career official” is practically a synonym for “innocent,” even, or especially, if that career official is revealed to be part of the “Resistance.”
