WHOA! These are one of those moments where you find yourself wishing you could be a fly on the wall. That would be the wall of every leftist “triggered” by this conversation that took place in the White House on Tuesday.
The White House was visited by the Republic of Poland’s President, Andrzej Duda, and he came with a declaration. He wants to build “Fort Trump” in Poland. The President of Poland is not happy with Russia. He spoke about his concerns with increased Russian military exercises on top of an even greater increase of Russian military attacks in the region. Andrzej Duda also came with what he believes will be the remedy for these concerns, imploring President Trump to bring his vision of “Fort Trump” to life and build a permanent military base there in Poland.
“We want to buy more equipment. We also want to cooperate in the area of development as regards to military technology,” Duda said. “I’m convinced this [partnership] between Poland and the United States will go smoothly.”
“I am convinced that such a decision lies both in the Polish interest as well as in the interest of the United States. Poland is an attractive country and, first and foremost, it’s got a very strategic location in Europe,” Duda said. “And I’m convinced that for the interest of the United States, also pertaining to the security of the United States itself, the presence of the U.S. forces in our country is important — also to protect American interests.”
President Trump has revealed that the U.S. is really considering a permanent military base in Poland. For more than a decade Poland has sought for this to happen, and after Tuesday they are feeling very hopeful that it will.
Trump also mentioned that he knew Poland was willing and able to make a large contribution to the United States coming in as a military presence in Poland, which is a major plus when deciding to consider the idea. He was particularly intrigued to hear their contribution would be up to $2 billion or more.
“Poland would be paying billions of dollars for a base,” Trump said. “The [Polish] president offered us much more than $2 billion … so we’re looking at it.”
Poland has been a big part of the growing U.S. presence in Eastern Europe, especially since Russia’s invasion of Crimea back in 2014. The bolstered growth of U.S. military there includes repeat deployments of Airborne Brigade Combat Teams in an effort to show the rapid mobilization that could be provided by U.S. and NATO forces if Russia ever decided to attempt invasion again. This could be just one of the reasons Poland’s President was more than happy to hear that “Fort Trump” is a possibility.
“I was smiling when talking to Mr. President, I said that I would very much like to ask to set up a permanent American base in Poland, which we would call ‘Fort Trump,’” Duda said in a joint press conference following their meeting. “I firmly believe this is possible. I am convinced that such a decision lies in the Polish interest and in the interest of the United States.”
For now U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has revealed that the Pentagon is currently working hand in hand with Poland leadership to look at potential options, however, no decisions have been made as of yet.
“The questions are many in there,” Mattis said. “You know it’s not just about a base, it’s about training ranges, it’s about maintenance facilities, all these kinds of things and a host of details you’ve got to study alongside. So no decision has been made. We’re studying it and we’re working together on that.”
The President of Poland seems to be convinced that “Fort Trump” will be a very effective deterrent against any future Russian aggression that may present itself.
“The presence of the U.S. armed forces in this area is absolutely justified,” Duda said. “I am convinced there is no more effective method of preventing a war than a decisive stance illustrating that we are ready at any moment to repel [a] possible attack.”
There are some other thoughts to consider when it comes to “Fort Trump.” During the conference at the White House it was not discussed what types of troops and assets would be deployed to reside at “Fort Trump” and although Poland is a huge advocate for the permanent U.S. base on its territory, Russia has been warning of an aggressive response to such a presence.
Former Army Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges advocated the boosting of U.S. military presence during his time of service as commander of U.S. Army Europe, but even he requested caution be made when considering a permanent U.S. base in Poland. He warned that there was a downside.
“It would give Moscow an easy opportunity to claim that NATO is an aggressor and to somehow respond to protect Russian sovereignty,” Hodges told Politico in June.
What do you think about the idea of “Fort Trump”? Is a permanent U.S. military presence in Poland going to be a tool for strengthening our ally or an invitation for Russian aggression? Please let us know your thoughts!

Judge Orders Hillary Be Deposed For Judicial Watch-Benghazi Lawsuit
We are lucky to have Judicial Watch. This is the only organization that is fighting for justice. This woman shouldn’t be walking free for the crimes she’s committed. No American citizen would be able to get away with these crimes. The left truly believe they are above the law.
It would be nice to see a Clinton in Prison.
A federal judge on Monday ordered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to deliver a sworn deposition in response to a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch over her role in the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
U.S. District Court Royce Lamberth wrote in court filings that Clinton’s written answers to questions regarding the matter in a separate case were “incomplete” and “unhelpful” and demanded more information.
“As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business,” wrote Lamberth. “Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.”
BREAKING: Federal Court Orders Deposition of Hillary Clinton on Emails and Benghazi Attack Records. Rules prior testimony "left many more questions than answers." https://t.co/pvW4CD2oBS

The judge added: “Even years after the FBI investigation, the slow trickle of new emails has yet to be explained.”
Judicial Watch initiated the lawsuit in 2014 to uncover whether Clinton used her private email server to communicate about the Benghazi attack to skirt the Freedom of Information Act and whether the State Department reviewed records following an FOIA request from Judicial Watch. On September 11th, Ansar al-Sharia terrorists attacked the diplomatic compound, killing U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.
FLASHBACK August 2019 Court Grants NEW Discovery on Clinton Emails!
Via Judicial Watch:
We have won a significant victory in our pursuit of the truth about Hillary Clinton’s misuse of official email and the Deep State’s efforts to cover it up.
A federal judge granted us seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.
Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).
The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Mrs. Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to our questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue. The court granted all of our requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.
The new court-ordered discovery allows us to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison. The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.

VA Dems Introduce Bill To Take Pensions From Sheriffs Who Opposed Gun Control
Maybe it’s time we start taking pensions from all elected officials. Officials who are supposed to serve us. Not us serving them. These elected officials become millionaires in office. These people continue to take from the American people.
Democrat leadership is useless and dangerous. None of them should ever be allowed to have power. This is what they do with that power. The Founders warned us this would happen.
Dear American people..stop voting these people into office.
During CPAC, Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told Breitbart News that Virginia Democrats are punishing sheriffs who continue to stand against gun control.
On December 7, 2019, Breitbart News reported Jenkins’ announcement that he was ready to “deputize thousands” to defend Second Amendment rights had the Virginia Democrats passed gun bans and other controls that were being pushed.
He made clear he equated his actions with calling forth the militia to defend freedom. He quoted Richard Henry Lee from 1788, saying, “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves…and include all men capable of bearing arms.”
Over the past weekend of CPAC, Jenkins told Breitbart News:
In early December I came out against the newly proposed legislation to restrict everything from ‘assault weapons,’ so-called ‘assault weapons,’ to ‘high capacity magazines…and said that if we’re going to take away weapons from law-abiding citizens I intend to swear in thousands of citizens as reserve deputy sheriffs so they can keep those weapons and be able to protect themselves and use them.
Jenkins said that he and other sheriffs who took a similar stand were threatened with having insurance coverage removed “from deputies and staff.” He said that sheriffs throughout the state were offered a $10,000 raise “if we would tuck tail and follow [the Democrats’] lead and stop the push-back.”
But Jenkins refused to cower, and said they responded by saying “they would take away the raises of the deputies if we didn’t stop.”
He said State Sen. Janet Howell (D) “introduced a bill for next session where she could remove the pension of sheriffs…next year for…saying that we won’t follow unconstitutional laws or that I would use my lawful powers as sheriff to swear in thousands of people as deputies.”
Virginia Sheriff Vows to ‘Deputize Thousands’ to Defend Gun Rights
Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins says he will “deputize thousands” to defend gun rights should incoming Democrats use their legislative positions to enact more gun control in Virginia.
On December 4, 2019, Jenkins used a Facebook post to thank the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors for standing with the dozens of other counties that have declared their intention to defend the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
But his joy was mixed with somber warnings:
Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions. “Red Flag” laws without due process will create enormous conflict as well.
America has more guns than citizens and murder has long been illegal. At best, the proposed gun restrictions will disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense and possibly cause a criminal to choose another tool for evil.
I remain very optimistic that our General Assembly will not pass the proposed bills. Obviously, if passed, there are many of us willing to challenge these laws through the courts. In addition, if necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.”
In January, Sheriff Richard Vaughan vowed to defend the 2nd Amendment, also.
