Or, other members of Congress are protecting their own line of business. The Katie Hill story takes an immediate bizarre twist:

And there was no arm twisting, except by MFM and Adam Schiff, that should be apparent by now.

Doral was bait for something that hasn't popped into view yet, is my guess. So I'll wait until it does.

Seems we need a Mueller level investigation of each member of Congress.

And since Mueller's personal emails got pulled from his ISP (VZ), we have a whole new field of view to wait for focus.

I am sorry to disagree with our esteemed blog host but this is not a year of choosing between the lesser of two evils. The Democrats are pure evil. Donald Trump is flawed, but his Presidency is fighting pure evil. Congrats to the nats

Another Bob

People are oh-so-concerned (optics or more) about the potential of Trump (who is donating his presidential salary) making a few pennies profit off the G-7? Tut tut, bad optics.

But the speaker of the house is running a Star Chamber consisting only of her caucus to manipulate election outcomes, and unlawfully overthrow the president? Shrugs.

I think TM is trolling us.

Trump really needs to put a “so-called” before “whistleblower”.

Maybe he is, but I really wish he wouldn't, because it's not funny in the least. Especially with the constant downpour of MSM crap we have to wade through every day, and the stakes that are at risk.

Trump really needs to put a “so-called” before “whistleblower”.

Trump needs to draw some actual blood from someone prominent on the left, and not in some indefinite endless #twoweeks.

This will never stop until the Democrats and the MSM pay an actual price for their treachery.

What the party loyalists like maryrose are having, and will have, a hard time with what is being revealed is both sides have their share of creeps although it's skewed more on the commiecrat side. It sucks to have to admit that you've been conned because that's how I felt about the Rear Admiral. Dogmatically refusing to believe that isn't a smart thing to do.

I see on Twitter that Bed, Bath and Beyond has pulled black jack-o-lanterns from their Halloween displays (and I assume sales) because of a blackface complaint.

I cannot begin to say how stupid this is.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

Social media has ruined their con. Trump has used it to SHOW people.

A lot of people made fun of Trump as a "reality TV star" but he actually understands the power of television and social media. He uses them as tools, and by luring out backstabbers like Romney, he is SHOWING Republicans who they are.

That 11th Commandment of Reagan's is kaput when you have traitors like Mitt.

This reply to that tweet is even more troubling:

Why would you say that about Charlie Kirk? Is it because he is not displaying the negativity and pessimism that many on The Ledge display about the future? I would think what Kirk describes happening across campuses nationwide would encourage you that Trump and the MAGA agenda is winning over the hearts and minds of the nation's youth.

https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/10/trump-wont-profit-from-g-7.html

The Associated Press (link) reported on February 25, 2019, "President Donald Trump’s company said on Monday that it donated nearly $200,000 to the U.S. Treasury to make good on its promise two years ago to hand over profits from foreign governments using its properties.

"The Trump Organization said a check for $191,538 sent to Treasury represents profits from embassy parties, hotel stays and other foreign government spending at its Washington hotel and other properties last year. The voluntary donation is up from $151,470 sent a year ago to cover the president’s first calendar year in office.

"Trump announced the donation plan before his inauguration two years ago in response to criticism that in refusing to sell off his business, people would suspect his decisions in office would be influenced by spending at his properties and not necessarily reflect the public interest."
