  1. Questions For Adam's Update 2-22-2017

    Dang it! I missed it by 10 minutes mister!
  2. Good morning ladies I don't believe the Bush clan likes Cruz. Cruz fought against GW Bush and the international court to uphold Texas execution ruling against an illegal who raped and murdered a teenage girl. Here are a few articles to research “I just don’t like the guy,” Bush said Sunday night, according to conversations with more than half a dozen donors who attended the event. One donor in the room said the former president had been offering mostly anodyne accounts of how the Bush family network views the current campaign and charming off-the-cuff jokes, until he launched into Cruz. “I was like, ‘Holy sh-t, did he just say that?’” the donor said. “I remember looking around and seeing that other people were also looking around surprised.” Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2015/10/jeb-bush-george-bush-donors-ted-cruz-214933#ixzz42P7BPqA2 Follow us: @politico on Twitter | Politico on Facebook In 2003, Jose Ernesto Medellin was on death row for his subhuman crimes a decade earlier: the rape and murder of two young girls, ages 14 and 16. Medellin was an illegal immigrant and sought to have his execution stayed, claiming that during his trial he was not notified of an international law through which he could have obtained legal aid from the Mexican consulate. Mexico then sued the United States on behalf of Medellin and 50 other illegal immigrants that were incarcerated in the U.S. for crimes they committed on US soil, citing the same loophole. District and appellate courts threw out Medellin’s requests, but the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case. Before the case could be argued, however, the Bush administration stepped in. Bush took the position that as president, he had the authority under the Constitution to order states to review the convictions and sentences of foreign nationals in order to advise them of their rights according to international law. Prompted by the Bush memorandum, Medellin re-filed in Texas state court. Who was the state's solicitor general? Ted Cruz. After the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals dismissed Medellin’s second appeal, the Supreme Court once again said they would take up the case. Ted Cruz argued the case before the Supreme Court in what was a quite contentious back and forth, recounted below from a summer 2014 issue of the New Yorker: He (Cruz) argued that the President could not order Texas to reopen the cases without the specific authorization of Congress. Cruz duelled with Stephen Breyer and other skeptical Justices for well over the allotted thirty minutes. Breyer ribbed Cruz: “As I read the Constitution, it says all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States shall be the supreme law of the land, and the judges in every state—I guess it means including Texas”—the audience laughed—“shall be bound thereby.” “Certainly, Justice Breyer,” Cruz answered. “Texas, of course, does not dispute that the Constitution, laws, and treaties are the supreme law of the land.” But, he went on, the President’s order, in this case, was none of these. The questioning of Cruz became so raucous that, at one point, Justice John Paul Stevens felt compelled to interject, “You said there are six reasons. . . . I really would like to hear what those reasons are without interruption from all of my colleagues.” Cruz won the case, six-to-three, with Stevens joining the Court’s conservatives. Cruz bested not only the president, but all of his allies in this victory, and just as the clock was winding down on the Bush administration to boot. - See more at: https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2015/11/the-real-reason-gw-bush-hates-ted-cruz#sthash.NB3aaDYV.dpuf
  3. Trump is greedy and a crony capitalist who has purchased politicians on both sides of the isle. I do not trust that he would not follow his same pattern of cronyism and sell out the American public for greed and power. At what point is the American public going to STAND UP for the constitution? I believe he has no respect for the rule of law. He will believe he is a king just like what we have now. The only person who has done exactly what he said he would do when elected to congress and has a long history of fighting for the constitution and has not "sold his soul" is Cruz. Check his record and facts. There is a reason everyone hates him on both sides. Do you really think Trump could buy favor with Cruz like he has done with both sides? JMHO actual facts and actions speak louder then words. You will know them by their fruit!
  4. Prayer request

    Oh PUFF! I am so sorry! Father GOD, while we know that in Your presence there is NO pain, no disease, no suffering, only joy, I pray for the family that is left behind. Lord send your Holy Spirit to engulf this family with your love and comfort. Lord let all the fun, happy, and loving memories flood their minds. Let Your peace that surpasses all understanding flow through them and Lord bring joy in the morning! Thank you Jesus for hearing our prayers, it is in Your mighty name I pray, AMEN! Puff thinking of you and your family Our promise this time of year is knowing we will see our family again, so Merry Christmas.
  5. Thanksgiving

    I am thankful that our family is holding IQD. Now that China is a reserve currency, they have moved into a power position in the financial world. The only "value" holding the USD WAS the petro dollar (not being used exclusively in oil trade now) and being the MAJOR reserve currency for the world. We have nothing of substance backing our dollar now. Be watchful It just might be a blessing that all the "RV Monday" 's didn't happen. If the dollar tanks, we should be in a good position holding another currency Just think..... if it would of RV'd and we cashed out in USD, then the drop of USD value before moving or investing it........ How's your gardening skills? Do you want Santa to bring seeds for Christmas? Just say'n
  6. Thanksgiving

  7. Thanksgiving

    Hi! I just wanted to take a minute this morning to say I am thankful for our mod family! 2015 has been a crazy year for me and my family and 2016 looks to continue the trend I know I haven't been very active posting but know this, I am praying for all of you. I feel strongly that I need to say the following: 1) I think yesterday is the beginning of WW3. China has said they are going to mobilize since the killing of their citizen. It looks like all the major countries military will soon be in the ME. 2) Be very aware of your surroundings and have a plan. Listen to that small still voice inside you. Do not dismiss it! If you are not feeling comfortable where ever you may be....... leave (grocery store, gas station, bank etc......) 3) Be prepared! More then ever, if you have a few extra bucks, stock up on staple foods, can foods, seeds, bottled water etc... 4) Meds..... make sure you have extra..... 5) Knowledge, I pray every day to have eyes that see and hears that hear the truth and facts. Knowledge is power! I refuse to parish due to a lack of knowledge. History is about to repeat, and it will be worse this time. The pattern has been established...1930's are here with the addition of the 1960's culture war. A) Know the enemy! There is a reason Thomas Jefferson printed the koran and asked all the citizens to read it! He wanted the public to be informed and know our enemy during the Barbary wars! Most importantly, know GOD's word! Do not be deceived. Love you all!
  8. FYI Mr. Cruz has an autographic memory. That is why he was able to repeat back to the moderators their questions in the exact same order as they were asked. I can't copy and paste the article here with explorer and don't have time to switch to chrome. I think The Wall Street journal and I know theblaze.com has articles on this
  9. • Adam Montana Morning everyone! I just posted this comment in the VIP section, but figured I'd share it here as well. • • Jetman do you have any new news for us today • • Adam Montana We HAVE A BUDGET. It's 100% official! • • Marcy AAWESOME,,,, • • Adam Montana This is absolutely outstanding, especially considering Maliki couldn't get a budget done in the entire YEAR of 2014 • • Adam Montana And Abadi gets it done before the end of January! • • Marcy AWESOME!!!!!!! • • Adam Montana Not only that, but there's an oil agreement in the Budget so the next thing to do is bring the HCL to the table, vote on it, and then publish it • • Jetman will they use the Brent oil price • • Adam Montana This is such an exciting time... it's hard to contain myself! • • the Brent price? • Adam Montana oh, crude • • Jetman yes • • Adam Montana well, the budget is set at $56 which is much more realistic than $70 but if Oil goes back to $60 by the end of the year, then $56 is just fine • dolphin1 Hi Adam, I am thinking we would not see a new rate at least until they open on Sunday, right? Morning Saint! • Cousineddy ADAM...serious economics question...Do you think we will be waiting for crude to rise again for an RV since it is Iraq's collateral for backing their currency? • Adam Montana Anyway, I'm glad to see that Abadi just moved past the 2014 budget - that was the right thing to do. No sense in wasting time on the past, we're moving forward • Adam Montana it was stated that the HCL would be finalized in early February... you know, for once in this investment I'm starting to feel better about the dates they give! • • Adam Montana cousineddy, no - they don't need to. • Adam Montana I wouldn't imagine crude will go too much lower, and it will go back up • Adam Montana that's all I have for now... just really excited to see some solid news and some great progress by the new Iraq • Adam Montana I'll be watching, but at this point I think we can take a couple days to prepare, breathe deep, and watch some fireworks hopefully early next week! • Skrappyone the Saudi prince stated we will never see 100 again • • Adam Montana skrappy I'd agree with that assessment. • • Adam Montana welcome I'll pop back in later! • Adam Montana have a great day everyone!
