Following up on my comments about your segment with Tucker about annulling reality, I'd like you thoughts on where the Country goes after the elections in November. It seems to me there are two choices. (A) The Democrats succeed in taking at least the House, in which case we get never ending investigations of the Trump administration. (B) The Republicans manage to hold both the House and the Senate, in which case we get to see if the volume goes past 11 on the vitriol meter. If it is (B), do we get the violence Tucker referenced? Is there a good outcome here?

US Rep Mark Meadows said today that the DOJ/FBI planted stories in the press, which in turn were then used to support FISA warrants. If true, as I expect it is, it's not really that surprising is it?

A couple of months ago you spoke of the Windsor waxing salon that denied a transgender person a Brazilian because the waxologist was Muslim. Now, a transgender person has filed human rights complaints against 15 different waxing parlours across BC after "she" went fishing for salons that would deny to book an appointment. Is this the new reality?

In a May 22, 2018 post you wrote about Stefan Halper and quoted Sara A. Carter. Yesterday Carter reported on DoD analyst and whistle-blower Adam Lovinger who became curious when he found $1 Million in payments to Halper for nothing much. Lovinger's attorney says that Adam "unwittingly shined a spotlight on the deep state's secret weapon-- Stefan Halper... and the Trump-Russia narrative was all a set-up."

William Hague, the ex-leader of the Conservative party in the UK, recently warned his colleagues that his party was at risk of monomaniac 'entryists'. As an ex-member of UKIP myself, who joined his party in order to have a say on Brexit and a future leader, is he right to fear me and my ilk?

I get (sort of) Reich going ape over Trump, though honestly I haven't seen anyone melt so thoroughly down since Krugman (another guy who plays a sane person on TV). But what in tarnation has he against Pence? All I can see about Pence is that he professes to think what everyone, including the LightWorker and the last failed Presidential candidate, professed to think about gay marriage ten years ago, and that he doesn't care to eat alone with a woman not his wife. As the wife of a public school teacher, I'm with him there; the restrictions on what you can do (e.g., never shut your door under any circumstances if there's a student in your office). But Trump is Hitler, so Pence is obviously another Hitler, just as Romney and McCain and Reagan were.

Now onto my comment... You know what I find so infuriating about the whole Russia investigation that doesn't seem to get much attention? It's the fact that the entire "Russia" narrative is so utterly insulting to the American people.
What they're saying is that the American people (particularly those who voted for Trump) are so unbelievably stupid that we can't figure out who to vote for ourselves. We're so easily manipulated, that a couple of Russian Facebook ads could sway us to vote for anyone other than Hillary Clinton.
Of course, Hillary lost for many reasons, one of them being that the Democrats are the party of elites who look down on anyone not in their circles - you know, us Deplorables... the American people they can "smell in Virginia Walmarts". So, I find it ironic that they have quadrupled down on that losing strategy with the whole Russia narrative, where they again insult half the country as being unable to make an educated, thought out decision on who we vote for and why. Russian mind control is apparently all the rage. Who knew!?!

I heard that just before the press conference announcing the Mexican-American trade agreement or whatever it is, that Trump tried to call Trudeau but was told that Trudeau had another engagement. Another personal day (vacation day) or what? Can't believe he didn't pick up the phone.

A few of my braver acquaintances have started posting about the S. African white farmers whose land/Ag business can now be legally confiscated. I am noticing the reaction ranges from disbelief to they deserve it (since they unlawfully took the land) and since they subjugated people, that murdering them is actually acceptable punishment since they are white greedy colonialists. There does not seem to be an understanding that with the poisoning of the racial waters in this country and other western type Civilizations, a situation could exist where that becomes more acceptable in countries where the founding group of citizens of white background could be annihilated as well. No matter to good intentions. Our media downplays this.

A few months ago you chatted with Jordan Peterson which I've re-watched several times - any chance of catching up with Dr Peterson again?
Am attending Dr Peterson's talk in Edinburgh on October 28th - would love to attend any UK venue you may be planning - any chance for 2019?
Can't make your inaugural cruise but saving hard for the next one, do travel safe and keep up the great work
