China’s economy is continuing to contract.

From the article linked above:

  • Economic growth was the lowest since records began in March 1992 and below expectations of 6.1 per cent

China’s economy grew by 6.0 per cent in the third quarter of 2019, the lowest quarterly growth rate since records began in March 1992.

The new low marks a continuation in a long-running slump that has been compounded by the US-China trade war, which has hit manufacturing and exports in the world’s second largest economy.

It follows second quarter growth of 6.2 per cent, which was itself the lowest on record. The growth rate was below the result of a poll of economists conducted by Bloomberg, which had forecast 6.1 per cent.

The headline figure of 6.0 per cent gross domestic product (GDP) growth for the third quarter comes at a time of severe pressure on China’s economy and just days after the Washington-based International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted that China’s growth will be 6.1 per cent in 2019 and 5.8 per cent in 2020, both downgrades from previous forecasts.

Yesterday our President spoke to National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronauts Christa Koch and Jessica Meir during the first all-woman spacewalk from the International Space Station (ISS).

Rally Recap

What an absolutely amazing rally. Here are some video clips and photos from it.

Was so happy to see that Terrence Williams got to attend his first rally in person.

Scott Presler was there as well. He also was able to interview a few folks outside the arena.

Look at the size of the overflow crowd. Our President’s estimate is right!

Our Lion got home safe after another incredible day of winning!

Look at the incredible data that came out of Thursday night’s rally. Was really happy with the percent of Democrats and Hispanics that were in attendance.

God bless the Dallas Police for apprehending this guy before he had an opportunity to do serious damage.

Secretary of Energy, Rick Perry, will go down in the history books for bringing forward our President’s vision of ENERGY DOMINANCE. The job he did was incredible and he will be missed.

Mexico is continuing to do an incredible job with migrants.

From the article linked above:

Mexican immigration authorities say they have deported 311 Indian citizens in an unprecedented repatriation to that South Asian nation.

The National Immigration Institute said in a statement late Wednesday that it had flown the 310 men and one woman to New Dehli from Toluca.

At the Louis Vuitton event, PDJT was approached by a French reporter. What he said absolutely cracked me up!

Patriots are absolutely fired up! They are letting the Do Nothing Democrats know exactly how they feel.

Folks in Iowa don’t want to hear anything about impeachment.

From the article linked above:

President Trump appears to be holding his own in Iowa, where voters are dismissing impeachment as a major issue and the two top Democrats are losing to him in an election match-up.

The latest survey from Emerson Polling found that just 7% consider impeachment the “most important” issue. In order, they listed the economy, at 33%, healthcare, at 19%, and social issues at 10%.

Even among Democrats, impeachment doesn’t push through, with the top issue being healthcare, at 25%, the economy, at 17%, and the environment, at 14%.

Never forget that Money talks and BS walks when it comes time to vote in a Presidential Election.

This news made my day. I hope our President bankrupts them!

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has vowed to file a lawsuit against CNN and is seeking a “substantial payment” in the wake of a series of undercover videos showing bias against the Republican president inside the network.

HRC decided to accuse current Democrat Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard of being a secret Russian agent.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/hillary-clinton-says-russia-grooming-3rd-party-candidate-u-s-n1068786

From the article linked above:

“[Tulsi Gabbard is] the favorite of the Russians, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. She’s a Russian asset! I mean, totally. They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate.”

Tulsi Gabbard sent quite the response via twitter.

Emerald Robinson is absolutely right why HRC decided to take potshots at Tulsi Gabbard today.

From the article linked above:

State Department investigators probing Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state discovered nearly 600 security incidents that violated agency policy, according to a report the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.

The investigation, conducted by the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, found 38 individuals were culpable for 91 security violations. Another 497 violations were found, but no individuals were found culpable in those incidents.

One reason that investigators were unable to assign culpability in the 497 incidents was because of the duration of the investigation. Many of the subjects of the probe, including Clinton and her circle of aides, has left the State Department by the time the investigation began.

A 9 page unclassified report was sent to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley. You can find it below.

Black Americans continue to awaken and speak out in support of our President.

Our President is seeing the seismic shift and is doing everything in his power to continue the momentum.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump has accepted an invitation to participate in a presidential candidate forum focused on improving the criminal justice system in the United States.

His participation will bring him to the historically black Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina, where he will share billing with half a dozen Democrats vying to replace him in 2020.

The event next week, described as “exclusively focused on the future of criminal justice reform after the First Step Act,” ultimately represents a chance for Trump to speak publicly and substantively about the role he played in getting that criminal justice reform bill signed into law late last year.

The new law boosts rehabilitation programs for federal prisoners and gives judges greater discretion when sentencing nonviolent offenders, particularly for drug offenses. Thousands of inmates have been released as a result of this bill.

I am so happy that our FLOUTUS found a cause that is near and dear to her.

Our President is an APEX PREDATOR! Turkey, the Kurds and the European Union are finding out what it means to mess with our LION.

This young boy may not understand right now the tremendous impact our President is having on our country, but he and many others like him will reap the benefits throughout their adulthood.

      1. I’m trying to figure why or what makes people like Zucker, Zuckenberg, et al turn into vile haters of people not like them. I believe it’s because they’re atheists – no belief in a higher being, so they have no faith to anchor them. Which really makes them Communists.

        1. It’s possible. When people reject religious belief for primarily emotional reasons, what they are doing from that point on is living in rebellion.

          In a real sense they become enslaved to their own passions. Chiefly, their desires for anger, control, revenge, whatever the case might be.

          Zucker’s behavior (what is it with these sugar-coated names??) is entirely consistent with someone who has lived their lives looking for control, filled with anger, and a willingness to take malicious action to attack others.

          Control: He wormed his way up into President of CNN, arguably the most power new media corporation in the world (at least at one time). But that isn’t enough for Zucker. His lust for control expresses in a daily 9AM call where he gives directives from the top to every person in the organization. Even the evil Steve Jobs at his worst never went to this level.

          Anger and Vengence: We’re talking about a man who wakes up every morning thinking of new and innovative ways to attack and demonize Trump. A toddler’s anger is a temper tantrum, but an adult is capable of channeling that anger: it can be channeled constructively which is the ideal, or it can be channeled destructively. This is clearly destrutive: Every day he is willing to drive the network off a cliff and destroy/sacrifice his/CNN’s ratings and credibility for One Single Goal: To Destroy Trump.

          You cannot drive a car forever if you abuse it, and you cannot be Pres of CNN if you are going to implode the network. Either the shareholders will evict you or the bankruptcy court will. That’s where CNN is headed, full speed ahead on the fast track to destruction.

            It is entirely possible (and, I think, probable) that he is expressing the will and wishes of his own superiors, and Zucker is simply in complete and zealous agreement with them.

            The MSM is a tool, a weapon in the hands of the Cabal.

            It’s not about money. They need money, so it’s good to have the enterprise be self sustaining if possible, but it will be kept afloat at all costs, because the Cabal cannot control the narrative without them (i.e., CNN, MSLSD, CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, Fraud News, etc.).

            Apparently over 90% of all media is ultimately controlled by just six companies (multinational companies, IIRC). Clearly they are all operating in collusion with the same objectives, using the same 4am talking points, and using their media outlets to achieve the same ends.

            I don’t think Zucker is a rebel without a clue. If he was, he would have been fired a long time ago.

            I think he is just following orders that he enthusiastically agrees with.

    2. Hate to tell you, the exploitation and impregnation of minors was prevalent in some black communities when I was growing up….and to some extent, may still be.

      It was 1972 and I was 26 when my first daughter was born and when I was holding her on my hip ordering lunch at a fast food place, the nice black lady next to me said ‘Your granddaughter is so sweet.’

      In her culture, girls had babies as soon as they had their first periods, and any local ob-gyn would attest to that. You could be a ‘great-gran’ at 40 easy-peasy. We used to call it ‘black years’ like some folks say ‘dog years’.

      Nowadays, we call marketing children a crime….back then it was a cultural thing.

      Welfare complicated and exacerbated the picture, because having more babies younger increased family income and benefits exponentially.

        1. It’s not uncommon here in beautiful downtown Deutschland (not Burbank 🙂 ), to see a Moslem man (and I use that term loosely) walking 10-15 feet in front of his Burka-burdened wife (ves), often with a double (or even QUAD) stroller, pregnant, with older children (and perhaps the other concubines) beside her.

          Typical fecundity of a Moslem woman here is at least FIVE CHILDREN, with up to FOUR “wives” permitted per male.

          Add that to the mostly military-aged, misanthropic Moslem males invading Germany since 2015; estimates range from 1,000,000 to 1,500,000.

          Hmmm. One male, four women, five children per = 25x the number of Moslem males streaming in to formerly beautiful downtown Deutschland, as in 25,000,000 to 27,500,000 MOSLEM INVADERS, or almost 50% of our current population.

  6. I’m sorry, but I’m grinding my cognitive gears here……from the transcript of the call to the ISS: “ADMINISTRATOR BRIDENSTINE: There’s about a four- or five-second delay.”

    Where is it?

    The ISS orbits at a height between 408 and 411 km above the earth’s surface — about 254 miles. Since it circles the entire earth every 92 minutes, it obviously would change cellphone towers a leetle beet faster than the system was designed for…….but surely it could relay through standard geosynchronous satellites. I you posit standard geosynchronous birds at every hour, the ISS would be in optimal range of one every 92/24 = 3.83 minutes. That seems doable.

    The press thingie was scheduled ahead of time, so the ISS should have been directly overhead. So the delay should have been (1) ISS to geosynchronous; (2) geosynchronous to ground; (2) ground to WH. A geosynchronous orbit is at 35,786 km.

    Mind you, the speed of light is 299,792 km/sec. A radio signal can travel to geosynchronous, then to ground, in less than 0.2 seconds.

    If Bridenstine had said, “a second or two”, I’d be snoozin’……but where do the other seconds come from?

    And, if this observation is anywhere close to accurate…..shouldn’t we be thinking of upgrading our space communications infrastructure?

      That being said, 5 seconds seems long, and whatever system they’re using could stand an upgrade. But that upgrade might cost billions of dollars.

      Those geosynch relay satellites, for instance, might not actually exist. (Geosynch satellites exist, but does NASA own any or have access to them for this?) NASA tends to use ground stations, at least for its deep space probes. But that, of course, makes the expected delay SHORTER, not longer, since there’s no 50,000 mile trip up to the satellite and back down to earth.

      So yeah, I don’t understand it either.

      But I’m not going to assume they’re covering something up just because I don’t understand it.

    It’s narco music. The subject matter is murder and infidelity.

    Our cultures can’t coexist. Our values are too different.

    AND.

    Illegal Mexicans become a slave class in the US. Second-generation illegal aliens don’t speak ANY language fluently, and they drop out of school.

    ALL OF THIS IS RECENT.

    Mexico used to have a vibrant film industry, an art industry, and respected universities.

    In the movie The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the Mexicans all speak PERFECT Spanish. It’s beautiful.

    I can’t understand today’s young Mexicans.

    Keep in mind that SUDAN decided to fix itself.

    Mexico can certainly do the same.

    The only solution is to wall them off and let them decide what they want to do.

    If they continue to love the cartels, FINE.

    The wall will keep them out, and the attack in Culiacan showed that the cartels have zero military skills.

    Personally, I think Mexicans have all the skills needed to succeed. But they’ve let their culture become debauched and debased.

    I have to move from my home of thirty years because there’s no quality of life here.

    “You should stay and fight!”

    No. I need at least five years of me-time before I take my dirt nap.

    California is Upper Mexico, and I want to live the rest of my life in the United States.

The new digital meters are inaccurate (wildly off in certain weather conditoins), induce toxic dirty electricity into homes, and for older homes, have been known to cause fires. What a sham.

          _______________

          I can think of at least one reason, probably the oldest reason, the reason why Mankind, from the beginning, packed up what he needed to survive, and left to explore the world.

          We are explorers, and curious by nature.

          We climb mountains because they are there.

          We have been to the Moon, but we have not yet been to another planet, and we have been eyeing that red one in the night sky since the dawn of Man.

          So if we can find a way to do it, we’re going to go, because that’s what we do 🙂

          To paraphrase one of JFK’s better speeches, we don’t do these things because they are easy, but because they are hard.

          Here it is:

          …………………………
          On September 12, 1962, a warm and sunny day, President Kennedy delivered his speech before a crowd of about 40,000 people in the Rice University football stadium, many of them students.[8][10] The middle portion of the speech has been widely quoted, and reads as follows:

          “We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours.

          There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?

          We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon…We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_choose_to_go_to_the_Moon
          …………………………

          I hope we go.

          We need to try big things, and fail, and learn, and keep trying, to ultimately achieve big things.

          It’s part of who we are.

          To inspire the generations who come after us, to stand on our shoulders, and go further, taking the next step.

        That must have been amazing. To remember a time when mankind had not yet been to the Moon, and dream about it, and then to actually be alive (and old enough to understand) during that tiny window of opportunity in the history of the world, to see it happen. To see with your own eyes and experience the wonder and feeling that truly anything is possible.

        Even taking a rocket to the Moon, and landing on it. And phoning home! And then making it back home again, living to tell about it. It must have been incredible.

        I dreamed about it too, a lot. But it had already happened by the time I was dreaming about it 😁

        Supposedly my Mom woke me up in the middle of the night to watch the first Moon landing because my Grandpa called and told her to do it, but I was definitely too young to remember it. I was really still too young by the LAST Moon landing (1972) to remember it.

        I would really like to see it happen, to see Americans landing on the Moon again. People who are able to remember it have a perspective that is missing from those who don’t.

        For those who didn’t experience it, it’s just history, it doesn’t seem any more ‘real’ than black and white photos of WWII, or Columbus discovering the new world or anything else in history, because we didn’t live through it, we didn’t experience it personally.

        It is an experience I would very much like to have some day 🙂

          I can remember all of the sci-fi novels, the Heinleins, the Asimovs, the Clarkes, Verne, etc. and their speculations of what the Moon held in store for us. Perhaps miles of dust to trap our exporers, radiation or other hazards, or, even little (or gigantic) green men hellbent on keeping us away from their domicile…

          Our children will never know that feeling, nor the feeling of wonder at seeing the Moon, our satellite (indeed, our sister planet, as many consider the earth-moon pair to be a twin planet owing to the relative sizes), explored for the first time.

          As we have no idea of what it was like for folks in Europe to hear tales of the “New World”. Then again, there are always new frontiers, and opporunities “to boldly go where no man has gone before…”. As Gaal Dornick would well know 🙂

She’s a communist, as bad as any of the other Leftists, but she’s not pig-ugly, which makes her stand out among the other pigs, and the incels (new term I discovered over on NeonRevolt recently) who can’t meet real girls and spend their lives watching online porn would rather look at Tulsi than Trump.

        That’s the Tulsi Gabbard effect in a nutshell.

        She’s prettier than Trump (or female, at least), and less ugly than the rest of the devilrat field.

    1. I consider, Tulsi a she-wolf. Other than her looks, she isn’t any different than her commie/fascist fellow travelers. She a Trojan Horse, trying to pass herself off as a “moderate” – there are no moderates in the Democrat Party.

      BTW, while she might attract male voters, a lot of the women in the Dem base despise attractive women. not sure she get their vote.

            1. Somebody convinced the vendors that people would only eat grain fed bison. Ugh. Totally wrong thinking. I’ve been ordering direct from a ranch and yeah, the shipping on dry ice costs a bunch, but when I order it’s to put up in my freezer for the year.

              1. I love bison just not the stuff they pass as bison on the rez. We have gotten ranch raised bison and it is nothing like the processed stuff we get in comods.

  23. Great Roundup again, Flep!

    One thing that I found interesting, almost stunning, was the point about the drop in Chinese growth, as noted by Laura Ingraham:

    China’s economic growth worse than expected, sinking to new low of 6.0 per cent in 3Q…”.

    One wonders why 6 per cent is such a dismal number, as many countries would be happy indeed to have that number (were it REAL, which is yet another story).

    Almost as if there’s another agenda, i.e. that China MUST have a high growth rate. Has the indoctrination gotten to the point that the ChiComs must continuously grow and outgrow everyone else? That the second derivative must also always be growing, almost exponentially?

    I’d like to see their growth sink below zero. Otherwise they’re still screwing somebody, and that somebody had jolly well better not be us!!!!!
