WATCH: Democrat Under Investigation For Appearing To Break Law While Destroying AR-15 In Virtue-Signaling Stunt
March 9, 2018
A Democratic congressional candidate is reportedly being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) after she appeared to break the law while destroying an AR-15 in a virtue signaling stunt following the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Democrat Karen Mallard, a teacher who has spent 30 years in the classroom, is running for Virginia's 2nd Congressional District against Republican Congressman Scott Taylor.
Following the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Mallard decided to destroy an AR-15 that she claims her husband purchased a while back, saying in dramatic fashion, "I told him, I wanted this gun out of my house!"
Mallard proceeded to try to destroy the rifle by cutting most of the barrel off with a saw, which did not destroy the rifle, rather, she created a short-barreled rifle, which is a National Firearms Act (NFA) regulated item. Thousands of people have commented on the video on her Facebook page, mocking her and pointing out that she may have broken the law with her actions. ABC 13 News reports:
Master Police Officer Tonya Pierce, spokeswoman for the Virginia Beach Police Department, confirmed that the rifle was in the department's possession. Pierce told 13News Now the ATF was looking into the situation.
Texas Democrat refuses to resign from state senate after felony convictions – gets salary and pension
March 2, 2018
Flint Weiss / CCL
Democrats have continued to search for criminal activity in President Donald Trump’s administration to no avail — but if they want to find corruption and criminal activity, they ought to look at members of their own party.
Texas State Sen. Carlos Uresti, a Democrat, was convicted of money laundering and securities fraud in February, but is stubbornly insisting on staying in office.
The CrimeSen. Uresti was convicted on Feb. 22 of 11 federal counts of money laundering, and wire and securities fraud, Fox News reported. According to prosecutors, the senator and his co-defendant lied to investors to convince them to give them money for a fracking company that went bankrupt in 2015.
Uresti has another court date in May that deals with bribery charges. He is also facing charges for sexual harassment and assault; a reporter told The Daily Beast that Sen. Uresti groped her and “put his tongue down my throat.”
Another woman, Jenn Cervella, said that he ogled her and made her uncomfortable.
“We were being introduced and when we shook hands, he spun me around and said something like, ‘Damn, girl — you’re trouble,’” she said.
Meanwhile, the senator is free as he awaits sentencing for the fraud charges. He could face up to 20 years in prison.
He Still Gets PaidRepublican Lt. Gov Dan Patrick has stripped Uresti of all of his assignments, but while Democrat and Republican senators have called on Uresti to resign, he has resisted calls to do so.
Because he is not resigning, Uresti will stilll receive his pension, which can grow to as high as $140,000 per year — much more than the $7,200 salary that Texas state senators earn while in office.
And every month that Sen. Uresti stays in office that pension grows, and despite his felony convictions he does not have to sacrifice his pension.
The Texas Tribune reported:
The size of a government pension is determined by a legislator’s years served. Since Uresti has served nearly 21 years in the Legislature — combined with potential additions for his four years of active service as a U.S. Marine and other optional service credits — his pension could already be as large as $89,000 per year.
Felons are ineligible to serve in the Texas Legislature, but Uresti can keep his seat while he appeals. If he serves until the end of his current term in January 2021 his pension could grow by more than $9,000.
And that money won’t go away even if Uresti is finally convicted.
A law passed last year renders certain felons ineligible to receive government pensions. But that law isn’t retroactive, meaning it doesn’t apply to crimes committed before June 2017, according to Mary Jane Wardlow, spokeswoman for the Employees Retirement System of Texas.
Hopefully, the Texas legislature will figure out a way to keep this criminal from receiving the benefits of his position. He doesn’t deserve to be paid after what he’s done.
Watchdog group says Huma Abedin’s emails contain smoking gun – time to investigate
January 1, 2018

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said that it is time to launch a new, “serious investigation,” into the former secretary of state’s aide after the discovery of more classified emails on the laptop of her estranged, and disgraced, husband, former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Years of persistence paid offIt could be the beginning of real legal jeopardy for Abedin. Lifezette reported:
The emails were made public Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit Judicial Watch filed in March 2015. The 2,800 emails were among thousands found by the FBI that spurred the bureau to reopen its investigation in October 2016 and raise new questions about the Clinton team’s mishandling of classified information on the private server.
Fitton called it “a major victory.”
“That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law,” he said, adding, “After years of hard work in federal court, Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents. It will be in keeping with our past experience that Abedin’s emails on Weiner’s laptop will include classified and other sensitive materials.”
Weiner is currently serving a 21-month sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl. Abedin has since filed for divorce.
The emails discovered on Weiner’s laptop were heavily redacted and contained sensitive information about Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, United Arab Emirates officials and the Palestine Liberation Organization. It also discussed her boss, Hillary Clinton, and her lust for politics, even as Clinton served as secretary of state.
A spokesman for the State Department said that it “carefully reviews the content of records requested through FOIA to determine whether any information is sensitive or classified” and admitted that the emails found on Weiner’s laptop contained “classified information that has been redacted.”
The Chicago Tribune reported:
The FBI found thousands of emails exchanged between Clinton and Abedin while searching Weiner’s laptop as part of a criminal investigation into his sexting with a high school student. The discovery led then-FBI Director James Comey to announce in late October 2016, as Clinton’s run for the White House was in its final stage, that he was reopening the probe of her use of a private computer server.
Then two days before Election Day, the FBI declared there was nothing new in the emails. Clinton has called Comey’s intervention “the determining factor” in her defeat.
Abedin and her boss were able to skate by during the administration of former President Obama, but it won’t be that simple with President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the helm.
And it could mean that someone associated with the Clintons will finally be held accountable.
Now wouldn’t that be a refreshing change?
Sexual Harassment Scandals May Drive Democrats Out Of Power In CALIFORNIA
A solid "blue state" may be less solid than previously thought.
December 26, 2017
If there's any state in the union that is most assuredly "blue," it's California. Outside of a single Republican governor — Arnold Schwarzenegger — and a handful of state and federal legislators in northern and far southern counties, Democrats hold nearly every elected office in the state.
But according to Politico, a burgeoning sexual harassment scandal is roiling the state's Democratic ranks and a series of "scandal-induced resignations" thought to be coming in 2018 are threatening the Democrats' stranglehold on power.
"We’re in unchartered territory here,” Garry South, a veteran Democratic strategist told the political news outlet. “This whole issue has hit a critical mass in a very short time. I’ve never seen anything like it before — and I don’t know where it ends.”
South and others claim that Democrats have suffered from a severe decline in public trust. The Hollywood leftists who have bankrolled Democratic candidates at both the state and federal level are now under scrutiny, as Harvey Weinstein, perhaps chief among the entertainment industry's political powerhouses, is facing dozens of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape allegations — and, quite possibly, an indictment.
The major Democratic players who represent some of California's biggest urban areas can't escape the tarnish. Even Rep. Nancy Pelosi isn't immune, the article claims, because she stalled Rep. John Conyers's resignation, calling Conyers an "American icon" and pleading with him to remain in office, even as more women came forward to accuse Conyers of bizarre — and often sexual — behavior.
The California Assembly is itself embroiled in its own sex scandal. Dozens of women signed a petition to demand accountability from Democratic legislators they claim have sexually harassed aides and staff. They even have their own movement: #WeSaidEnough.
The Assembly plans to hold hours of hearings dedicated to sexual harassment within its ranks when it reconvenes in January, and the State Senate has hired two separate law firms, Politico reports, to handle what leadership believes will be a wave of claims. Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra, is leading a group of progressive feminists attacking California state Democrats from the left, accusing them of covering up for abusers in their ranks while labeling themselves great protectors of women's rights.
Democrats have yet to see electoral fallout from D.C. and Hollywood scandals, but Politico seems convinced that, at least in California, certain seats are likely to remain vacant or even flip to Republican if state-based scandals make national headlines. Californians prefer Democrats, that's not in doubt, but they may want a change of pace from their regular representation.
At the very least, Politico says, sources close to governor Jerry Brown are concerned his leftist agenda may have stalled indefinitely. With resignations coming weekly and a state legislature pre-occupied with sniffing out harassers in their midst, there will be far fewer environmental regulations and tax hikes passed in the next year.
That, at least, should be good news.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Fake Consumer Bureau is Just a Slush Fund for Far Left Causes By Warner Todd Huston December 7, 2017
The little known Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was in the news last week when President Donald Trump sent a new man into the agency to run it his way. We all should be hopeful that Trump’s man will help shut this massive fraud down instead of continuing along with its left-wing agenda. But, in the meantime, we all must understand that the CFPB is nothing but a tax-funded slush fund for left-wing causes and to fill the pockets of Barack Obama and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s pals.
Extremist Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren created the bureau supposedly to advocate for American consumers and to stop all those mean ol’ businesses from ripping people off. But a closer look at the bureau shows that it is nothing but a tax dollar-supported slush fund for far left-wing causes.
At the end of November, President Trump appointed Mick Mulvaney to head the CFPB after the former head, Obama-appointed Richard Cordray, resigned to run as a Democrat for governor in Ohio.
The liberals of Warren’s CFPB, though, sued to try and stop Trump from replacing Cordray. They idiotically insisted that presidents don’t have any right to replace the head of the CFPB. A court agreed… that their idea was idiotic… and allowed Mulvaney to take his place at the head of the bureau.
Of course, the liberals fear that Mulvaney will begin undercutting the bureau and reverse its liberal direction and we should hope their fear is well founded.
But with all this scrutiny of the CFPB, the New York Post’s Paul Sperry recently wrote an article revealing that the CFPB is a fake agency that just funnels tax dollars to left-wing causes and doesn’t do a thing to help “protect” the American consumer.
In his “December 2 article, Sperry revealed many of the fake policies that prove to be only left-wing causes that Warren’s fake agency has supported since it was created in 2010 during the Obama era.
Sperry noted, for instance, that Warren’s fake agency gave millions to a group that made advertisements for Hillary Clinton. In June of this year, the CFPB gave the Obama-Hillary ad company a $14.7 million contract for “agency media and resource communication.” The CFPB also gave $16 million to create marketing materials to push the left-wing causes of student loans and mortgages.
Fortunately, as soon as Mulvaney got in, he froze all new hiring and the issuance of regulations by the agency so he could review the work being done there.
“It is a completely unaccountable agency, and I think that’s wrong,” Mulvaney said last week. “If the law allowed this place not to exist, I’d sit down with the president to try to make the case that other agencies can do this job well if not more effectively.”
They say CFPB is a Democrat shop with an anti-business agenda that goes well beyond protecting consumers and includes closing the “wealth gap” and administering “economic justice,” as Cordray has been fond of saying. It hires almost exclusively Democrats and “rejects Republican job applicants,” according to former CFPB enforcement attorney Ronald Rubin. Federal election data show 100 percent of political donations made by CFPB employees during the 2016 election were given to Democratic candidates.
Sperry went on to lay out some of the sham causes the CFPB has wasted our tax dollars on:
It’s just another corrupt Obama/Warren scam to force the American taxpayer to fund un-American liberal causes.Let’s hope Mulvaney and President Trump shut the thing down.
There’s a little-known fund that goes to victims of sexual harassment on the Hill.
You pay for it.
The fund that settles sexual harassment cases in the legislative branch is unlimited and funded by taxpayers.
Updated by Jane Coaston
Nov 21, 2017, 1:10pm EST
On Monday night, BuzzFeed broke the story that Michigan Rep. John Conyers paid a former staffer thousands of dollars in a settlement in 2015 after sexually harassing her and other women in his office and then firing her for refusing his advances.
He likely isn’t the only member of Congress to settle a harassment case. Since 1997, Congress has paid at least $15 million to settle complaints about sexual harassment, racial discrimination, and violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act under the umbrella of the Congressional Accountability Act (CAA) of 1995.
The payments made to Rep. Conyers’s alleged victim came out of his taxpayer-funded office budget. Generally, though, these payments aren’t made by members of Congress or their offices. They’re made by a special section of the Department of the Treasury established under Section 415 of the CAA — and ultimately by the American taxpayer.
The process by which victims of sexual harassment on the Hill seek justice is long and arduous — it takes up to three months before a formal complaint can be filed. If a settlement is reached, it’s kept secret. The source of the money in the fund is excluded from the standard appropriations budget made public by Congress each year. There’s no process by which voters — or potential employees — can find out who the harassers in office are, what they’ve been accused of, or if they’ve settled with victims before.
The fund used to settle violations of the CAA is perhaps just one of the several pockets of money throughout the government used to handle judgments made against government employees. As harassment accusations topple prominent men in media, comedy, and Hollywood, it’s come under more scrutiny.
Victims of sexual harassment on Capitol Hill are protected by law. But payments made by harassers are protected too. The Settlement and Awards Fund comes from an effort to hold Congress accountable for the federal laws that all other employers have to follow.
But as prominent men in other fields have faced snowballing accusations of sexual harassment, it’s instead shielded members of Congress from publicity.
In 1995, Congress passed the CAA, an effort to apply 12 federal laws to the legislative branch, including the Americans With Disabilities Act; the Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires that employers pay at least the minimum wage; and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, color, or gender — including sexual harassment.
“Congress has notoriously exempted itself from accountability measures,” said Danielle Brian, executive director of the Project on Government Oversight, an organization focused on promoting transparency in government, in an email. “It's no wonder the public has such a low approval of Congress given that they exempt themselves from workplace laws that they apply to the rest of society. It is long overdue for Congress to live by the standards of conduct they appropriately demand from others.”
The 1995 law also established “an account of the Office in the Treasury on the United States for the payment of awards and settlements” — a fund paid for by taxes to pay settlements.
The payouts have varied widely, from just under $40,000 in 1997 to more than $4 million in 2007 to just under $1 million in 2017. The fund is virtually unlimited. The act calls for however much is necessary to pay awards and settlements, and a spokesperson for the Congressional Office of Compliance told me that money is only added to the fund when it is needed for a payment.
The exact source of the money is still a question: The spokesperson told me that money for the fund is not included in the yearly legislative branch appropriations budgets.
The Settlement and Awards Fund isn’t the only fund made up of unlimited taxpayer money to solve the government’s legal problems. If you sue the United States government, your settlement will be paid by the same fund used to pay the Iranian government $1.3 billion in interest, part of an effort to end a financial dispute between the two countries and hasten the return of five Americans being held in Tehran (including Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian.)
This fund is called the Judgment Fund, established by the Automatic Payment of Judgments Act of 1956 to be “a permanent appropriation for the payment of certain types of judgments and settlements obtained against the United States.”
If the US government is found liable in court, the Judgment Fund pays if another source of money isn’t available. Over the past 50 years, those provisions have been altered to include “administrative claim awards,” settlements made by agencies that didn’t require a lawsuit. It’s not clear if the Judgment Fund has ever paid out a harassment case, but Congress has been sued at least once over workplace discrimination laws.
The Office of Compliance’s mediation process for victims of harassment is long, complicated — and discouragingWomen working on the Hill, from senators to staffers, have been subject to sexual harassment for decades — even during hearings. And there’s no human resources department in Congress. Instead, the same law that created the settlement fund also created the Office of Compliance to administer it.
If members of legislative branch staff — from Senate office staffers to employees of the Congressional Budget Office — experience sexual harassment at work, they must go to the office within 180 days of the incident to find a solution.
The compliance office then initiates a four-step process: a 30-day counseling period, a mediation effort, an administrative hearing or civil action (a lawsuit), and an appeals process.
But according to Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), who has proposed a bill to change how Congress handles harassment, the current process puts the employee making a complaint at greater risk than the person who has harassed them.
Victims can’t even make a formal complaint for sexual harassment (or any other violation of the CAA) until three months have passed, including a 30-day period after enduring a mediation process with their harasser.
Even if victims get through the process and receive a settlement, that money comes not from their harasser’s office but from the Settlement and Awards Fund. Furthermore, no office is required to make those payments public, meaning that legislative staffers — including members of Congress — may have sexually harassed their colleagues and employees on the Hill, and done so with the knowledge that settlements to victims would stay secret.
The House Statement of Disbursements and the Senate’s expenditure reports list gas station receipts, but they don’t list payments to victims of sexual harassment — payments provided for by taxpayers.
And thousands of employees that make up the offices of legislators on the Hill can’t even take advantage of the protections that do exist. Interns who work (often for free) on the Hill every summer aren’t protected by the CAA, despite efforts by some Democrats to pass explicit protections for interns back in 2015.
Overall, a spokesperson for Speier told me, “It’s very clear [that] when the original bill that put this process in place was passed in 1995, it was done to protect the institution, not the most vulnerable.”
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the money used to pay victims of sexual harassmentAccording to the Office of Compliance, nearly $1 million has been paid in settlements for violations of the CAA in 2017.
But contrary to recent media reports, there’s no breakdown of which payments for CAA violations were for which offense, or even from which office.
Settlement payments are approved by the chair and ranking member of the House Administration Committee, but they are under no obligation to tell anyone else about those payments, and more importantly, which office was responsible for them. An aide to House Administration Committee Chair Rep. Gregg Harper told CNN he had received no requests for settlement approvals since becoming chair on December 2 of last year.
In the wake of allegations of sexual harassment against political figures like Sen. Al Franken and Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, Speier and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand proposed the Member and Employee Training and Oversight on (ME TOO) Congress Act, an effort to reduce sexual harassment in Congress through trainings, increased transparency, and changes to the complaint process.
If the ME TOO Act becomes law, it will require the Office of Compliance to identify the members of Congress whose offices settled harassment suits. In addition, if a member of Congress settles a claim as a harasser, they will have to pay back the Treasury for the amount of the award or settlement made to their victim.
The bill also has some Republican support. Rep. Bradley Byrne of Alabama, a former practicing labor attorney, told reporters on Monday that the Compliance Office should have the power to subpoena and investigate accusations of CAA violations, including sexual harassment.
A spokesperson for the Congress member told me that Byrne “was surprised to learn about the differences between how harassment claims are handled in Congress and in the private sector. He strongly believes Congress should have to play by the same rules as every other American. He is working with colleagues, including Congresswomen Jackie Speier and Barbara Comstock, to make bipartisan reforms to the outdated process.”
But for now, victims of sexual harassment on the Hill are locked into a lengthy and uncomfortable process to seek justice. And if they make it to a settlement, their harassers aren’t the ones paying it — in effect, they are.
Soros and his ‘226 EU friends’ thrust into spotlight by Farage – so who are they?

Picking up the anti-Soros torch from Hungarian leader Viktor Orban, UK politician Nigel Farage is seeking to investigate fellow EU MEPs who support the controversial vision of the wealthy financier. But are Orban and Farage’s fears valid?UK politician Nigel Farage, the prominent face of Brexit, is now concerned about Europe’s destiny. Addressing the EU Parliament this week, Farage provided some thoughtful ideas as to the source of the claims that Russia had somehow manipulated the Brexit vote, as well as the Trump election.
“Just last week, the electoral commission, in the UK, launched an investigation to find out whether the ‘Leave’ campaign took offshore money or Russian money,” Farage said.
"This came about as a result of questions asked in the House of Commons by one Ben Bradshaw, somebody linked to an organization called Open Society.”
But Farage, who seems to take great delight in agitating his fellow MPs, was just warming up. He went on to provide yet another example of an EU parliamentarian working on behalf of George Soros, this time against Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, who has accused the financier of seeking to create “a Europe of mixed population.”
“We even had last week Mr. [Guy] Verhofstadt lobbying on behalf of Mr. Soros at the Conference of Presidents in a battle that is going on with Viktor Orban, the prime minister of Hungary,” Farage said, pointing directly at Verhofstadt as he spoke.
“I wonder,” Farage continued, “when we are talking about ‘political collusion,’ I wonder if we are looking in the wrong place.”
Nigel Farage calls on EU to investigate George Soros funding, collusionFarage described Soros’s influence in Strasbourg and Brussels as “truly extraordinary.” And that influence looks set to increase dramatically now that Soros has donated the bulk of his wealth - $18 billion - into his Open Society pet project, which campaigns for open borders and supranational structures such as the European Union.
Farage concluded his short, fiery monologue with a weighty statement: “I fear we could be looking at the biggest level of international, political collusion in history.”
On the surface, there seems to be some legitimacy to Farage’s claim. According to public sources, Open Society European Policy Institute (OSEPI), the EU policy arm of Open Society Foundations, met with members of the European Commission on 44 separate occasions in 2016. And now that the organization has just been energized with $18 billion, it would seem apparent that that influence is set to increase.
Moreover, the Soros organizations published a pamphlet providing details on a list of 226 reliable “friends” who serve in the European Parliament. Farage said he would call on the parliament to set up a special committee to investigate the issue.
Who are Soros’ 226 EU ‘friends’?In a 177-page pamphlet published by Open Society, entitled “Reliable Allies in the European Parliament (2014-2019),” 226 EU MEPs are listed and labeled according to their political orientation and views.
According to the pamphlet, “The presence of an MEP in this mapping indicates that they are likely to support Open Society’s work. Considering there are 751 members of the European Parliament, “reliable allies” of George Soros hold at least one-third of seats."
How George Soros’ people enlisted me as a ‘foot-soldier in the fight against Putin’So what sort of qualifications does an MEP need to be included among Open Society’s “reliable allies?” A quick preview of the candidate’s description field provides some good indication as to what Soros expects from his allies, including a political philosophy that includes support of the LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or intersex) movement, open borders and an anti-Russia stance.
Among the 226 chosen, there is one Yana Toom, an MEP from Estonia, who comes in for a bit of criticism despite her inclusion. “Refused supporting the European Parliament’s first resolution on the Ukraine-Russia conflict in July 2014, and may be pro-Russia to an unknown extent (and, in that case, not necessarily an Open Society).”
For anyone who questions whether Open Society works directly against Russian interests, that single line should dispel all doubts. Moreover, it provides some background as to why Russia in 2015 banned Open Society from operating on its territory due to the threat it posed to the country’s “constitutional order.”
Another MEP on the list, Monica Macovei of Romania, serves as something like the golden mean for star-studded Soros status.
“Resolutely progressive; unquestionable ally of Open Society values; does not hesitate to go against her group’s instructions; however, can sometimes be described as a loose cannon with her own, uncompromising set of priorities.”
When reading such an assessment, one might get the mistaken impression that the European Parliament is designed to serve the will of George Soros and his highly controversial agenda, as opposed to the will of the European peoples.
What does Soros want?To say that George Soros, who was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, has an influence on the global scene, would be the understatement of the century. His excessive wealth allows him to finance a veritable army of organizations, many serving at cross purposes.
‘Stop Operation Soros’ movement begins in MacedoniaIndeed, Soros, 87, has been connected to movements and civil disturbances as diverse as distanced as Black Lives Matter movement in the US, to the Maidan uprising in Ukraine.
And nowhere has Soros’s influence been more felt than in the ongoing European debate over migrants.
It looks like the European refugee crisis, which has been blamed on the Syrian civil war, would not occur in its current intensity without the direct assistance of the Open Society Foundation.
Thanks to the advocacy work of the Migration Policy Institute and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM), both Soros-sponsored organizations, the mass resettlement of Muslims from the Middle East and North Africa into Europe became the norm.
In fact, it appeared that the so-called “Merkel Plan” – the deal struck by the EU and Turkey – was the brainchild of the European Stability Initiative, “in addition to the largesse of George Soros’ foundations,” F. William Engdahl wrote in the Near Eastern Outlook.
Considering that the massive influx of Muslim migrants threatens to change the face of “Christian Europe” forever, and without any vote on the matter by the people of Europe, perhaps it is time to see exactly what kind of direct influence George Soros and his Open Society Foundation are having on European parliamentarians. After all, these are not the play toys of any one individual, but the representatives of an entire state.

GOP Lawyer Has Final Answers As Seth Rich Murder Takes Drastic Turn, Heads To Court
Posted by Sam Di Gangi | Nov 15, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Jack Burkman (pictured) feels that Brazile knows more than she has said.
Just what happened to Seth Rich and by whose hands has been a topic of debate for quite some time. We know that Rich was talking to Wikileaks and haggling about payment in order to spill what he knew. We know that he is somehow tied into the DNC lies and the fake news masterpiece known as the Russian dossier, but not much more is known.
Jack Burkman, a G.O.P. attorney who has become an expert on the Seth Rich case “has filed a new lawsuit against Donna Brazile, alleging” that she knows why the Democrat Party staffer was killed, the Conservative Tribune reports. Could this be true? After reading her book, many feel that it is more than possible. If it is, this case has just taken a drastic turn.
Newsweek reminds us that “Rich was shot and killed in July of 2016 while he walked home at night” in D.C. and was called a botched robbery. However, nothing was stolen from him.
Burkman has filed a “number of lawsuits” in an effort to get past the obfuscation of the left who are working hard to cover up his murder. WND confirms that the most recent one “a federal lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee for the release of the hacked DNC server they claim will reveal key information in solving the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.”
If the DNC was innocent, they would have long ago turned the item over. As it stands, only a fool could believe what they say as they clutch the server in both hands and hide with it. That is not how an innocent person or organization acts.
The suit has been amended to include Donna Brazile, former DNC head. “I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights. With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder,” Brazile told the Daily Caller.
Will we ever found out who killed Seth Rich (pictured in the center)?
“Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town. (My friend) Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her. The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there,” she added.
For one thing, doesn’t the left say that reverse racism never happens and that black never kill whites for their skin tone, only the other way around? Secondly, we know that Brazile asked Clinton to donate some of the leftover money from the campaign to a fund for “to find Rich’s killer.” So, clearly, the two were close in some way.
“I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer,” the former head says in her book.
The fact that Brazile wrote, “You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our goodbyes that I might never hear from her again” sends shivers down Clinton’s spine because it may appear in court.
Does Donna Brazile know if Rich was killed because he was exposing how Bernie was cheated?
The lawsuit also attempts to get the money back to supporters of Senator Bernie Sander (I-VT) who the DNC cheated, and by proxy, cheated all of those who gave so much as one red cent to his campaign. The lawsuit seeks “financial compensation for Sanders’ supporters who contributed to the Vermont senator’s campaign by donating to the DNC.”
“In this case, we will finally, after a year and a half, get these servers. That, among other pieces of evidence, is probably the single most important piece of evidence in this case,” said Burkman who is tireless for the truth. “That will shed light on the entire Seth Rich mystery — we will know whether he was the leaker, we will know whether the Russians were involved, we will know whether WikiLeaks was involved.”
Hopefully, the servers are still intact and the truth will get out. After all, the DNC are the crafters of so many lies that it stands to reason that if Seth Rich was going to topple their house of cards with the facts, they would kill and not even blink.
Brazile Breaks Silence, Reveals Disgusting Details About DNC As Obama, Hillary Guilty
Posted by Georgette Walrath |
Nov 3, 2017
Donna Brazile wrote an article released yesterday on Politico. In it, she outlined the massive financial corruption of the democratic national committee, Obama, and the Clinton campaign. Oddly, she did not discuss her very direct involvement in providing then-candidate Clinton with questions to the debate. Apparently, that “secret” cheating doesn’t violate “everything that I stood for, all that I valued as a woman and as a public servant.”
Of course, her revelations have rocked the party. She is about to release a book detailing how the unethical activity of Hillary Clinton and her campaign was made possible by Wasserman-Schultz and former president Obama. Brazile cited “proof” contained on a financial agreement she discovered during her interim position as DNC Chair.
According to her, an agreement between two separate campaign funds and the DNC bought out the organization and made it Clinton’s whipping boy. Even Elizabeth Warren weighed in on Brazile’s announcement.
Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters was given millions of dollars that was supposed to be allocated to the winner of the primary elections.
“We’ve got to hold this party accountable,” Warren said. “When Tom Perez was elected to chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him was to say, ‘You’ve got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats rather than Democrats working for the party.’”
“This is a test for Tom Perez,” she continued. “And either he’s going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders’s representatives into the process, and they’re going to say it’s fair, it works, we all believe it, or he’s going to fail.”
Damage control is on overtime as the party scrambles to retain the Bernie supporters alienated by Clinton’s shenanigans.
Brazile has always been close to the Obama’s and Clinton’s. Her new “revelations” seem contrived as damage control.
Brazile wrote that she “followed the money” to find the corruption within the party and called it a “cancer,” but not terminal. Apparently, Obama left the DNC $24 million in debt after the 2012 campaign. The White House was taking it’s time paying it off.
According to Brazile, Wasserman-Schultz didn’t do her job fundraising for the party and just allowed the Clinton Headquarters in Brooklyn to manage the funds. She wrote, “Officials from Hillary’s campaign had taken a look at the DNC’s books. Obama left the party $24 million in debt—$15 million in bank debt and more than $8 million owed to vendors after the 2012 campaign—and had been paying that off very slowly.”
“Obama’s campaign was not scheduled to pay it off until 2016. Hillary for America (the campaign) and the Hillary Victory Fund (its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of 80 percent of the remaining debt in 2016, about $10 million, and had placed the party on an allowance.”
Many liberals believe that by admitting the rigged primary, Bernie supporters will be brought back into the brainwashed fold.
None of the DNC officers knew about this exchange of funds, so she says. But again, this is the same woman who denied giving Clinton the debate questions. She finally admitted in March that she cheated, but many wonder if Hillary had pulled off her scam on America and been elected if any of this would be confessed.
Brazile continued to make Wasserman-Shultz the scapegoat. Perhaps the democrats realize that their party is a stench and they are trying to place blame on a few who’ve already been exposed.
When the DNC emails were leaked, or hacked, every single democrat blasted the leaks and the media outright told Americans that the information shouldn’t be viewed because it was gained unlawfully. No outrage about the Clinton hijacking of the party, no righteous condemnation about their own racism, in short, none of the openness that Brazile is showing now.
Everyone actually downplayed the contents of the emails. That sort of coordinated suppression of the actual tactics that characterize the DNC is nothing new, so Brazile must be looking to make some money here. However, the fact remains that the Clinton campaign “had the DNC on life support, giving it money every month to meet its basic expenses, while the campaign was using the party as a fund-raising clearinghouse.” And, it needs $2-$4 million each month.
Individual contributions to a campaign are set at maximum $2,700. However, the people who had maxed out their campaign contribution could write another $353,400 to the Victory Fund, which was basically Hillary’s. It was supposed to be used by the party’s nominee, but Clinton had already assumed control before the voting even began.
Brazile wrote, “The money would be deposited in the states first, and transferred to the DNC shortly after that. Money in the battleground states usually stayed in that state, but all the other states funneled that money directly to the DNC, which quickly transferred the money to Brooklyn.”
She says that she asked Gary Gensler, “the victory fund was supposed to be for whoever was the nominee, and the state party races. You’re telling me that Hillary has been controlling it since before she got the nomination?”
She added, “’That was the deal that Robby struck with Debbie,’ he explained, referring to campaign manager Robby Mook. ‘It was to sustain the DNC. We sent the party nearly $20 million from September until the convention, and more to prepare for the election.’”
However, the states kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million that was amassed for the fund. The “money-laundering” scheme is something that Clinton knows all about. When the DNC was questioned about it, the typical outrage and snubs followed.
Essentially, Brazile outlined the facts that everyone already knew, but no liberal in the media or politics would admit. Many believe that the admission is calculated to help revive the struggling image the party of slavery has garnered over the past 8 years.
Breaking! The NFL Players Association Caught Funneling Money to George Soros
By Onan Coca
October 6, 2017
This shouldn’t be all that surprising but some interesting informaiton has been uncovered by several media outlets today – the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), the Ford Foundation, the Kellog Foundation, the Services Employees International Union (SEIU), and various other organizations have been discovered funneling money to George Soros and other far-left fundraisers.
While the information shouldn’t be shocking as many of these groups have already been known to lean left, it does paint a picture of corporate America hell-bent on seeing our Republic transformed into a socialist oligarchy, run by massively wealthy oligarchs like Soros.
“A prominent anti-Trump ‘resistance’ organization” and several other leftist groups receive direct donations from the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA).
2ndVote has found the NFLPA provides financial support to the Center for Community Change Action, which according to the Washington Free Beacon, “has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections.” 2ndVote’s research team found the NFL Players Association is identified as an organization that donates in support of the center’s work in the latest available annual report.
The Center for Community Change (CCC) funded the “Families Fight Back” campaign which mobilized Latinos against the Trump campaign for President, they also support United We Dream which advocates for “Sanctuary Campuses” in direct opposition to the Trump administration’s efforts to enforce our immigration laws. The CCC also donates annually to Planned Parenthood, meaning that the NFLPA is literally paying to kill children. Google is also partnering with Planned Parenthood and will soon be hosting an awards ceremony for the abortion giant, where another liberal billionaire, Tom Steyer, will be honored for his efforts to see more people killed through environmental regulations.
2ndVote has uncovered the NFLPA has financially supported at least two more left-wing, anti-Trump activist groups. Two of the union’s last three tax filings (2013, 2015) show donations to Working America, a Steyer-supported organization that used Craigslist in Cleveland, Ohio to apparently recruit paid activists to protest the 2016 GOP convention. The NFLPA’s 2014tax filing shows a donation to Jobs With Justice, another organization backed by Soros that actively opposesthe president’s tax cuts.
As the Washington Free Beacon reports the NFLPA is linked to various other groups as major donors to far-left causes:
The Center for Community Change’s largest contribution was $3,000,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which was initially created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company. The Ford Foundation, which was first created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, added a $2,350,000 donation. The Open Society Foundation, a foundation run by liberal billionaire mega-donor George Soros, gave $1,750,000 to the Center for Community Change.
Other donors to the organization include the California Endowment, which gave $524,500; the Marquerite Casey Foundation, which gave $515,000; Fidelity Charitable Gift, which donated $505,100 (Note: Fidelity itself did not donate, this figure reflects private individuals who used the company as a charitable vehicle for their own donations.); and the National Immigration Law Center, which gave $316,000.
The Center for Community Change Action, the “social welfare” (c)(4) arm of the group, additionally relies on a handful of donors for almost all of its funding, according to its documents that do not include the privacy redactions.
The point is this, there are many large corporations donating significant amounts of money to far-left anti-American causes and they’re getting that money from us, their customers.
Do we really want to be the funding source for men like George Soros, and genocidal groups like Planned Parenthood? If you don’t want your hard-earned dollars working to push our nation over a leftist cliff, then you may want to make sure that your avoiding spending money with corporations like Kellog’s, Ford, the NFL, and the like. Every dollar spent with them is another dollar that goes straight into the coffers of these far-left fascists who are hell-bent on running and ruining our future.
The Obama Administration’s Uranium One Scandal
by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
October 21, 2017 4:00 AM @ANDREWCMCCARTHY
Not only the Clintons are implicated in a uranium deal with the Russians that compromised national-security interests.
Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By contrast, the staggering $500,000 payday from a Kremlin-tied Russian bank for a single speech was part of a multi-million-dollar influence-peddling scheme to enrich the former president and his wife, then–secretary of state Hillary Clinton. At the time, Russia was plotting — successfully — to secure U.S. government approval for its acquisition of Uranium One, and with it, tens of billions of dollars in U.S. uranium reserves.
Here’s the kicker: The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal.
The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their “public service.” The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom. Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.
The Obama administration also knew that congressional Republicans were trying to stop the transfer. Consequently, the Justice Department concealed what it knew. DOJ allowed the racketeering enterprise to continue compromising the American uranium industry rather than commencing a prosecution that would have scotched the transfer. Prosecutors waited four years before quietly pleading the case out for a song, in violation of Justice Department charging guidelines. Meanwhile, the administration stonewalled Congress, reportedly threatening an informant who wanted to go public.
To understand what happened here, we need to go back to the beginning.
The first-tier military arsenal of Putin’s Russia belies its status as a third-rate economic power. For well over a decade, the regime has thus sought to develop and exploit its capacity as a nuclear-energy producer. Naïvely viewing Russia as a “strategic partner” rather than a malevolent competitor, the Bush administration made a nuclear-cooperation agreement with the Kremlin in May 2008. That blunder, however, was tabled before Congress could consider it. That is because Russia, being Russia, invaded Georgia.
In 2009, notwithstanding this aggression (which continues to this day with Russia’s occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia), President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton signaled the new administration’s determination to “reset” relations with Moscow. In this reset, renewed cooperation and commerce in nuclear energy would be central.
There had been such cooperation and commerce since the Soviet Union imploded. In 1992, the administration of President George H. W. Bush agreed with the nascent Russian federation that U.S. nuclear providers would be permitted to purchase uranium from Russia’s disassembled nuclear warheads (after it had been down-blended from its highly enriched weapons-grade level). The Russian commercial agent responsible for the sale and transportation of this uranium to the U.S. is the Kremlin-controlled company “Tenex” (formally, JSC Techsnabexport). Tenex is a subsidiary of Rosatom.
Tenex (and by extension, Rosatom) have an American arm called “Tenam USA.” Tenam is based in Bethesda, Md. Around the time President Obama came to power, the Russian official in charge of Tenam was Vadim Mikerin.
The Obama administration reportedly issued a visa for Mikerin in 2010, but a racketeering investigation led by the FBI determined that he was already operating here in 2009.
The Racketeering Scheme
As Tenam’s general director, Mikerin was responsible for arranging and managing Rosatom/Tenex’s contracts with American uranium purchasers. This gave him tremendous leverage over the U.S. companies. With the assistance of several confederates, Mikerin used this leverage to extort and defraud the U.S. contractors into paying inflated prices for uranium.
They then laundered the proceeds through shell companies and secret bank accounts in Latvia, Cyprus, Switzerland, and the Seychelle Islands — though sometimes transactions were handled in cash, with the skim divided into envelopes stuffed with thousands of dollars in cash.
The inflated payments served two purposes: They enriched Kremlin-connected energy officials in the U.S. and in Russia to the tune of millions of dollars; and they compromised the American companies that paid the bribes, rendering players in U.S. nuclear energy — a sector critical to national security — vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow. But Mikerin had a problem. To further the Kremlin’s push for nuclear-energy expansion, he had been seeking to retain a lobbyist — from whom he planned to extort kickbacks, just as he did with the U.S. energy companies. With the help of an associate connected to Russian organized-crime groups, Mikerin found his lobbyist. The man’s name has not been disclosed, but we know he is now represented by Victoria Toensing, a well-respected Washington lawyer, formerly a federal prosecutor and counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
When Mikerin solicited him in 2009, the lobbyist was uncomfortable, worried that the proposal would land him on the wrong side of the law. So he contacted the FBI and revealed what he knew. From then on, the Bureau and Justice Department permitted him to participate in the Russian racketeering scheme as a “confidential source” — and he is thus known as “CS-1” in affidavits the government, years later, presented to federal court in order to obtain search and arrest warrants.
At the time this unidentified man became an informant, the FBI was led by director Robert Mueller, who is now the special counsel investigating whether Trump colluded with Russia. The investigation was centered in Maryland (Tenam’s home base). There, the U.S. attorney was Obama appointee Rod Rosenstein — now President Trump’s deputy attorney general, and the man who appointed Mueller as special counsel to investigate Trump.
Because of CS-1, the FBI was able to understand and monitor the racketeering enterprise almost from the start. By mid-May 2010, it could already prove the scheme and three separate extortionate payments Mikerin had squeezed out of the informant. Equally important: According to reporting by John Solomon and Alison Spann in the Hill, the informant learned through conversations with Mikerin and others that Russian nuclear officials were trying to ingratiate themselves with the Clintons.
Uranium One, Russia, and the Clintons
There is no doubt that this extraordinarily gainful ingratiation took place. I outlined some of it a year ago in suggesting that the Justice Department should be investigating the Clinton Foundation, and its exploitation of Hillary Clinton’s influence as secretary of state, as a potential racketeering case.
In 2005, former President Clinton helped his Canadian billionaire friend and benefactor, Frank Giustra, obtain coveted uranium-mining rights from Kazakhstan’s dictator. The Kazakh deal enabled Giustra’s company (Ur-Asia Energy) to merge into Uranium One (a South African company), a $3.5 billion windfall. Giustra and his partners thereafter contributed tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Besides the valuable Kazakh reserves, Uranium One also controlled about a fifth of the uranium stock in the United States.
Alas, Putin, the neighborhood bully, also wanted the Kazakh uranium. He leaned on Kazakhstan’s dictator, who promptly arrested the official responsible for selling the uranium-mining rights to Giustra’s company. This put Uranium One’s stake in jeopardy of being seized by the Kazakh government.
As Uranium One’s stock plunged, its panicked executives turned to the State Department, where their friend Hillary Clinton was now in charge. State sprung into action, convening emergency meetings with the Kazakh regime. A few days later, it was announced that the crisis was resolved (translation: the shakedown was complete). Russia’s energy giant, Rosatom, would purchase 17 percent of Uranium One, and the Kazakh threat would disappear — and with it, the threat to the value of the Clinton donors’ holdings.
For Putin, though, that was just a start. He didn’t want a minority stake in Uranium One, he wanted control of the uranium. For that, Rosatom would need a controlling interest in Uranium One. That would be a tall order — not because of the Kazakh mining rights but because acquisition of Uranium One’s American reserves required U.S. government approval.
Uranium is foundational to nuclear power and thus to American national security. As the New York Times explained in a report on the disturbing interplay between the Clinton Foundation and the transfer of American uranium assets to Russia, the United States gets a fifth of its electrical power from nuclear energy, but only produces a fifth of the uranium it needs. Consequently, a foreign entity would not be able to acquire rights to American uranium without the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
CFIUS is composed of the leaders of 14 U.S. government agencies involved in national security and commerce. In 2010, these included not only Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who had cultivated a reputation as a hawk opposed to such foreign purchases, but Attorney General Eric Holder, whose Justice Department (and its lead agency, the FBI) were conducting the investigation of Rosatom’s ongoing U.S. racketeering, extortion, and money-laundering scheme.
In March 2010, to push the Obama “reset” agenda, Secretary Clinton traveled to Russia, where she met with Putin and Dimitri Medvedev, who was then keeping the president’s chair warm for Putin. Soon after, it emerged that Renaissance Capital, a regime-tied Russian bank, had offered Bill Clinton $500,000 to make a single speech — far more than the former president’s usual haul in what would become one of his biggest paydays ever. Renaissance was an aggressive promoter of Rosatom. The Clinton speech took place in Moscow in June. The exorbitant speech fee, it is worth noting, is a pittance compared with the $145 million Newsweek reports was donated to the Clinton Foundation by sources linked to the Uranium One deal.
The month before the speech, the Hill reports, Bill Clinton told his wife’s State Department that he wanted to meet while in Russia with Arkady Dvorkovich, who, in addition to being a top Medvedev aide, was also a key Rosatom board member. It is not known whether the State Department gave clearance for the meeting; the question appears to have become moot since the former U.S. president met directly with Putin and Medvedev. You’ll be comforted, I’m sure, to learn that aides to the Clintons, those pillars of integrity, assure us that the topics of Rosatom and Uranium One never came up.
Keeping Congress in the Dark
Meanwhile, congressional opposition to Russia’s potential acquisition of American uranium resources began to stir. As Peter Schweizer noted in his essential book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, four senior House members steeped in national-security issues — Peter King (R., N.Y.), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.), and Howard McKeon (R. Calif.) — voiced grave concerns, pointing out that Rosatom had helped Iran, America’s sworn enemy, build its Bushehr nuclear reactor. The members concluded that “the take-over of essential US nuclear resources by a government-owned Russian agency . . . would not advance the national security interests of the United States.” Republican senator John Barrasso objected to Kremlin control of uranium assets in his state of Wyoming, warning of Russia’s “disturbing record of supporting nuclear programs in countries that are openly hostile to the United States, specifically Iran and Venezuela.” The House began moving a bill “expressing disfavor of the Congress” regarding Obama’s revival of the nuclear-cooperation agreement Bush had abandoned.
Clearly, in this atmosphere, disclosure of the racketeering enterprise that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was, at that very moment, carrying out would have been the death knell of the asset transfer to Russia. It would also likely have ended the “reset” initiative in which Obama and Clinton were deeply invested — an agenda that contemplated Kremlin-friendly deals on nuclear-arms control and accommodation of the nuclear program of Russia’s ally, Iran. That was not going to be allowed to happen. It appears that no disclosure of Russia’s racketeering and strong-arming was made to CFIUS or to Congress — not by Secretary Clinton, not by Attorney General Holder, and certainly not by President Obama. In October 2010, CFIUS gave its blessing to Rosatom’s acquisition of Uranium One.
A Sweetheart Plea Helps the Case Disappear
Even though the FBI had an informant collecting damning information, and had a prosecutable case against Mikerin by early 2010, the extortion racket against American energy companies was permitted to continue into the summer of 2014. It was only then that, finally, Mikerin and his confederates were arrested.
Why then? This is not rocket science. In March 2014, Russia annexed Crimea. Putin also began massing forces on the Ukrainian border, coordinating and conducting attacks, ultimately taking control of territory. Clearly, the pie-in-the-sky Obama reset was dead. Furthermore, the prosecution of Mikerin’s racketeering scheme had been so delayed that the Justice Department risked losing the ability to charge the 2009 felonies because of the five-year statute of limitations on most federal crimes.
Still, a lid needed to be kept on the case. It would have made for an epic Obama administration scandal, and a body blow to Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes, if in the midst of Russia’s 2014 aggression, public attention had been drawn to the failure, four years earlier, to prosecute a national-security case in order to protect Russia’s takeover of U.S. nuclear assets.
The Obama administration needed to make this case go away — without a public trial if at all possible.
Think about this: The investigation of Russian racketeering in the American energy sector was the kind of spectacular success over which the FBI and Justice Department typically do a bells-n-whistles victory lap — the big self-congratulatory press conference followed by the media-intensive prosecutions . . . and, of course, more press conferences.
Here . . . crickets.
As the Hill reports, the Justice Department and FBI had little to say when Mikerin and his co-conspirators were arrested. They quietly negotiated guilty pleas that were announced with no fanfare just before Labor Day. It was arranged that Mikerin would be sentenced just before Christmas. All under the radar.
How desperate was the Obama Justice Department to plead the case out? Here, Rosenstein and Holder will have some explaining to do.
Mikerin was arrested on a complaint describing a racketeering scheme that stretched back to 2004 and included extortion, fraud, and money laundering. Yet he was permitted to plead guilty to a single count of money-laundering conspiracy.
Except it was not really money-laundering conspiracy.
Under federal law, that crime (at section 1956 of the penal code) carries a penalty of up to 20 years’ imprisonment — not only for conspiracy but for each act of money laundering. But Mikerin was not made to plead guilty to this charge. He was permitted to plead guilty to an offense charged under the catch-all federal conspiracy provision (section 371) that criminalizes agreements to commit any crime against the United States. Section 371 prescribes a sentence of zero to five years’ imprisonment.
The Justice Department instructs prosecutors that when Congress has given a federal offense its own conspiracy provision with a heightened punishment (as it has for money laundering, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and other serious crimes), they may not charge a section 371 conspiracy. Section 371 is for less serious conspiracy cases. Using it for money laundering — which caps the sentence way below Congress’s intent for that behavior — subverts federal law and signals to the court that the prosecutor does not regard the offense as major.
Yet, that is exactly what Rosenstein’s office did, in a plea agreement his prosecutors co-signed with attorneys from the Justice Department’s Fraud Section. (See in the Hill’s report, the third document embedded at the bottom, titled “Mikerin Plea Deal.”) No RICO, no extortion, no fraud — and the plea agreement is careful not to mention any of the extortions in 2009 and 2010, before CFIUS approved Rosatom’s acquisition of U.S. uranium stock. Mikerin just had to plead guilty to a nominal “money laundering” conspiracy charge. This insulated him from a real money-laundering sentence. Thus, he got a term of just four years’ incarceration for a major national-security crime — which, of course, is why he took the plea deal and waived his right to appeal, sparing the Obama administration a full public airing of the facts.
Interestingly, as the plea agreement shows, the Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section was then run by Andrew Weissmann, who is now one of the top prosecutors in Robert Mueller’s ongoing special-counsel investigation of suspected Trump collusion with Russia.
There was still one other problem to tamp down. That was the informant — the lobbyist who alerted the FBI to the Russian racketeering enterprise back in 2009. He wanted to talk.
Specifically, as his attorney, Ms. Toensing, explains, the informant wanted to tell Congress what he knows — about what the FBI and the Justice Department could already have proved in 2010 when CFIUS signed off on Russia’s acquisition of American nuclear material, and about what he’d learned of Russian efforts to curry favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton. But he was not allowed to talk.
It turns out, the lawyer explains, that the FBI had induced him to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The Justice Department warned him that it was enforceable — even against disclosures to Congress. (Because, you know, the FBI is opposed to all leaks and disclosures of confidential investigative information . . . except those initiated by the FBI, of course.) In addition, when the informant was primed to file a federal civil lawsuit to recover his own losses from the scheme, he claims that the Justice Department threatened him with prosecution, warning that a lawsuit would violate the non-disclosure agreement. The Hill reports that it has obtained emails from a civil lawyer retained by the witness, which describe pressure exerted by the Justice Department to silence the informant.
What a coincidence: That was in 2016, the stretch run of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. This stinks.

Report: Former UN Ambassador Attempted To Unmask More Than 260 Americans
Tech and Law Reporter
9:41 AM 09/21/2017
Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power tried to reveal the identity of more than 260 Americans in 2016, according to a Fox News report published Wednesday.
The ex-public official allegedly averaged more than one unmasking request for each formal working day, even continuing her spree towards the final days of the Obama administration.
The House Intelligence Committee’s unmasking probe named Power as a person of interest, along with former Obama national security advisers Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes, as well as former CIA Director John Brennan. Congressional investigators suspect that at least one of them may have tried to obtain the identities of Trump associates through intelligence reports.
The people of interest are all expected to testify before Congress in October, Fox News reports, but likely in classified sessions.
NSA Director Mike Rogers said earlier in March that 20 people at the NSA, along with a few officials at the FBI, the CIA and the U.S. Department of Justice, have the ability to “unmask” Americans whose communications are entangled with the communications of a foreigner.
In a letter to Dan Coats, the director of the office of national intelligence, California Rep. Devin Nunes, a Republican, wrote that investigators within the House Intelligence Committee “learned that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration.” He did not specify, however, who the particular person is and what their proper jurisdiction and responsibility was due to their position.
Power’s lawyer, David Pressman, has said that “Ambassador Power was also a member of the National Security Council responsible for advising the President on the full-range of threats confronting the United States,” according to Fox News. But he denied any wrongdoing for his client, stating that “any insinuation that Ambassador Power was involved in leaking classified information is absolutely false.” (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: New Calls For Criminal Investigation Of Obama Aides In ‘Unmasking’ Scandal)
Nunes also contended that senior Obama administration officials, “offered remarkably few individualized justifications” for the unmasking requests, and added that some “were followed by anonymous leaks of those names to the media.”
Judge Issues Court Order After Federal Government Refuses To Release Hillary Info
Posted by Allison Hillman | Sep 1, 2017 | American Strength
Judge Boasberg just issued a wakeup call for Hillary Clinton, it isn’t over.
Earlier this week, we reported on the stunning decision of the FBI to refuse a Freedom of Information Act request to release records on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Their reason was baffling, they stated that there was not enough public interest in the case to outweigh the privacy concerns. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg has issued a ruling that reverses the FBI’s decision.
Lawyer Ty Clevenger had been the one to request the information originally. He was shocked when he received the letter from the FBI stating;
“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject. It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”
Judicial Watch and the Cause of Action Institute had also been pushing for the release of these documents. The judged stated that “After reviewing the document in camera, the court concludes that it largely rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.”
Sadly, besides overturning the decision by the FBI, it also overrules objections by some of President Trump’s administration that the release would violate the grand jury secrecy rules. President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton thinks the president should be concerned with that fact;
“President Trump ought to be outraged his appointees are protecting Hillary Clinton. The State Department should initiate action with the Justice Department — and both agencies should finally take the necessary steps to recover all the government emails Hillary Clinton unlawfully removed.”
It will be interesting to watch what the FBI does with this order from Judge Boasberg. They may challenge it or we may see the eventual release of the records without more of a fight. It was exposed yesterday that former FBI Director James Comey had decided not to charge Clinton with a crime before the investigation was even finished.
This ruling by Judge Boasberg lends a little balance to an organization that has been severely biased for a long time.
One Democrat Is In Hot Water For Threatening To Kill Trump
Democrats have lost their minds.
Liberals are destroying monuments and committing vandalism in response to Donald Trump’s response to Charlottesville.
But one Democrat found herself in hot water after taking it to the next level and threatening to kill Trump.
Missouri Democratic State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal wrote on her Facebook page that she hoped “Trump was assassinated.”
The New York Post reports:
“A MISSOURI LAWMAKER ACKNOWLEDGED THURSDAY THAT SHE POSTED AND LATER DELETED A COMMENT ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HOPING FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S ASSASSINATION, SAYING SHE WAS FRUSTRATED WITH THE PRESIDENT’S RESPONSE TO THE WHITE SUPREMACIST RALLY AND VIOLENCE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA.
DEMOCRATIC SEN. MARIA CHAPPELLE-NADAL SAID SHE WAS WRONG FOR WRITING THE POST AND DIDN’T MEAN WHAT SHE SAID, BUT SHE REFUSED CALLS TO RESIGN. SHE SAID SHE WROTE “I HOPE TRUMP IS ASSASSINATED!” IN RESPONSE TO A POST THAT SUGGESTED VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE WOULD TRY TO HAVE TRUMP REMOVED FROM OFFICE.
“WHAT I WROTE DOWN ON MY PRIVATE FACEBOOK PAGE, WAS IT WRONG? ABSOLUTELY,” SHE TOLD THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. “BUT I AM GOING TO CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT THE ANGER AND THE FRUSTRATION THAT LED TO THAT.”
Her unhinged ranting about killing the President was another example of Democrats calling for violence.
She apologized and quickly deleted her post, but her overheated rhetoric comes at a time when the rise of the violent alt-left is a major story in America.
Just weeks ago a supporter of Bernie Sanders attempted to assassinate Republican members of Congress as they practiced for a baseball game.
Her comments were quickly condemned by Democrats across Missouri, including Senator Claire McCaskill and the State Democrat Party chair who both said she should resign.
The Kansas City Star reports:
HER FACEBOOK COMMENT, WHICH WAS FIRST REPORTED BY A CONSERVATIVE RADIO HOST IN ST. LOUIS, WAS CONDEMNED BY SENATE MINORITY LEADER GINA WALSH, A ST. LOUIS COUNTY DEMOCRAT.
“PROMOTING, SUPPORTING OR SUGGESTING VIOLENCE AGAINST ANYONE, ESPECIALLY OUR ELECTED LEADERS, IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE,” WALSH SAID IN A STATEMENT. “THERE IS TOO MUCH RANCOR AND HATE IN TODAY’S POLITICAL DISCOURSE, AND SEN. CHAPPELLE-NADAL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF FOR ADDING HER VOICE TO THIS TOXIC ENVIRONMENT.”
MCCASKILL, A DEMOCRAT, RELEASED A STATEMENT ON CHAPPELLE-NADAL’S COMMENT: “I CONDEMN IT. IT’S OUTRAGEOUS. AND SHE SHOULD RESIGN.”
STEPHEN WEBBER, CHAIRMAN OF THE MISSOURI DEMOCRATIC PARTY, AGREED THAT CHAPPELLE-NADAL SHOULD RESIGN.
“STATE SEN. CHAPPELLE-NADAL’S COMMENTS ARE INDEFENSIBLE,” WEBBER SAID. “ALL SIDES NEED TO AGREE THAT THERE IS NO ROOM FOR SUGGESTIONS OF POLITICAL VIOLENCE IN AMERICA — AND THE MISSOURI DEMOCRATIC PARTY WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT TOLERATE CALLS FOR THE ASSASSINATION OF THE PRESIDENT. I BELIEVE SHE SHOULD RESIGN.”
MISSOURI AUDITOR NICOLE GALLOWAY, A COLUMBIA DEMOCRAT, TWEETED THAT CHAPPELLE-NADAL’S “WORDS AND SENTIMENTS ARE ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE. VIOLENT RHETORIC HAS NO PLACE IN OUR POLITICAL DISCOURSE.”
The media was furious because Trump pointed out there was violence on both sides in Charlottesville where Anti-fa and Black Lives Matter clashed with white supremacists.
What they were really mad about was Trump ending the left’s free pass on violence.
The quick reaction to Chappelle-Nadal’s comments is one example of the changing political environment.
Democrats are used to being able to getting away with saying anything they want to about Republicans.
But that day is over.
Horrendous Notes Leak, Showing Obama White House Lied On Hillary Scandal
Posted by Georgette Walrath | Aug 4, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Obama knew all along about the illegal behavior of Hillary Clinton and the emails that exposed her corruption.
Although this doesn’t come as a big surprise to conservatives who get labeled conspiracy theorists by alt-leftist deceivers, handwritten notes now prove that the Obama administration and the former president lied about their knowledge of the Clinton email crimes.
New information shows that the White House was included in deliberations over the release of the Clinton emails as early as the spring of 2015. The handwritten notes are the direct accounts of FBI agents, but the newest one specifically refers to “Counsel,” which is the earliest confirmation of Obama’s involvement.
Hillary’s illegal server activity was a hot potato for the Obama administration. Liberal democrats tried to distance the president from the Clinton scandal before the story even broke. Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group dedicated to exposing federal corruption, instigated the initial release of the handwritten notes.
The group filed a federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ), asking for the FBI interview summaries (302s) and all the emails surrounding Hillary Clinton’s criminal behavior as Secretary of State.
Although he told reporters that he learned about the emails when they were released, that was another lie.
On March 7, 2015 then president Obama told reporters that he learned about the email scandal like everyone else, from the news. “The same time everybody else learned it, through news reports,” he stated. However, he knew about it beforehand. He lied.
An email sent from Cheryl Mills that day proves that John Podesta knew of the imminent exposure. “We need to clean this up. He has emails from her — they do not say state.gov,” she wrote.
Two other serious instances of corruption and criminal activity are confirmed by the notes. State Department Clinton crony Patrick Kennedy (the number three guy) actually tried to convince an FBI agent to reclassify the emails.
While knowing otherwise, Kennedy attempted to have a federal agent illegally tamper with evidence, in order to protect Clinton. Democrats do not think like normal people. They are either too stupid to recognize illegal conduct, or think that they are above the law. Typically, they rely on an arrogant belief in the ignorance of their voters.
Like all liberals when they’re caught, Kennedy denied the charge.
Clinton and Obama cooked up all sorts of evil plots and schemes, this is just proof of one.
Other notes surrendered by the FBI demonstrated the State Department’s total disregard for the law. There were supposed to be 14 boxes of email evidence sent, but only 12 were delivered. No one knows what happened to that evidence, it’s probably been burned or placed on a plane that mysteriously blew up.
It often seems like the more evidence that piles up against democrat criminals like Hillary, Loretta Lynch, and James Comey, the less that anything actually happens. These people are walking free and many of those deep state players are still manipulating the system.
President Trump is besieged on every side and thwarted by republicans who Americans specifically voted in to support him. Perhaps the democrat plan is to overwhelm citizens with so much crime that there’s no logical place to start.
Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are liars. This time they happened to be caught.
Fortunately, there are still a few honest individuals in congress. Recently, uncorrupted representatives requested that another special counsel be assigned to investigate the prodigious amount of evidence that has been discovered. The democrat conduct amounts to nothing less than treason.
Instead of dancing to the tune of manipulators who think they still control America, why isn’t anyone actually filing criminal charges?
Fortunately, Judicial Watch is actively working to uncover the truth. The latest 302 proves clearly that Obama and his administration brazenly lied to the American people. As a matter of fact, Obama spent his time lying to the country. At least Joe Wilson had the courage to call him on it.
Both Obama and Clinton are serial liars. Not one word from their mouths can be trusted. The FBI notes clearly states, “Pat Kennedy (early May ’15) calls interagency MTG (meeting) re: scheduled release by JAN ’16, asking quick turnarounds – WH Counsel, CIA, etc…OSD, DNI, NSC and (redacted).”
Most of the information sent to Judicial watch has been redacted, but at least some was allowed to filter through. This shows that all the major agencies, including the White House were ready to take up arms and build a wall of protection around Clinton, ignoring and becoming complicit in her criminal behavior.
As more evidence is uncovered, it cannot be allowed to be ignored. The dastardly politicians who plan America’s destruction must be made accountable for their base and deceitful behavior
DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ AND THE PAKISTANI IT SCAMMERS
July 31, 2017 by Andrew C. McCarthy
In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud.
Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash.
By then, the proceeds of the fraudulent $165,000 loan they’d gotten from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been sent ahead. It was part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill. He pulled it off — hilariously, if infuriatingly — by pretending to be his wife in a phone call with the credit union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (“funeral arrangements”) wouldn’t fly, “Mrs.” Awan promptly repurposed: Now “she” was “buying property.” Asking no more questions, the credit union wired the money . . . to Pakistan.
As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks.
They were fired in February. All except Awan, that is. He continued in the employ of Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat, former DNC chairwoman, and Clinton crony. She kept him in place at the United States Congress right up until he was nabbed at the airport on Monday.
This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.
At the time of his arrest, the 37-year-old Imran Awan had been working for Democrats as an information technologist for 13 years. He started out with Representative Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) in 2004. The next year, he landed on the staff of Wasserman Schultz, who had just been elected to the House.
Congressional-staff salaries are modest, in the $40,000 range. For some reason, Awan was paid about four times as much. He also managed to get his wife, Alvi, on the House payroll . . . then his brother, Abid Awan . . . then Abid’s wife, Natalia Sova. The youngest of the clan, Awan’s brother Jamal, came on board in 2014 — the then-20-year-old commanding an annual salary of $160,000.
A few of these arrangements appear to have been sinecures: While some Awans were rarely seen around the office, we now know they were engaged in extensive financial shenanigans away from the Capitol. Nevertheless, the Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak, who has been all over this story, reports that, for their IT “work,” the Pakistani family has reeled in $4 million from U.S. taxpayers since 2009.
That’s just the “legit” dough. The family business evidently dabbles in procurement fraud, too. The Capitol Police and FBI are exploring widespread double-billing for computers, other communication devices, and related equipment.
Why were they paid so much for doing so little? Intriguing as it is, that’s a side issue. A more pressing question is: Why were they given access to highly sensitive government information? Ordinarily, that requires a security clearance, awarded only after a background check that peruses ties to foreign countries, associations with unsavory characters, and vulnerability to blackmail.
These characters could not possibly have qualified. Never mind access; it’s hard to fathom how they retained their jobs. The Daily Caller has also discoveredthat the family, which controlled several properties, was involved in various suspicious mortgage transfers. Abid Awan, while working “full-time” in Congress, ran a curious auto-retail business called “Cars International A” (yes, CIA), through which he was accused of stealing money and merchandise. In 2012, he discharged debts in bankruptcy (while scheming to keep his real-estate holdings). Congressional Democrats hired Abid despite his drunk-driving conviction a month before he started at the House, and they retained him despite his public-drunkenness arrest a month after. Beyond that, he and Imran both committed sundry vehicular offenses. In civil lawsuits, they are accused of life-insurance fraud.
Congressional Democrats hired Abid despite his drunk-driving conviction a month before he started at the House, and they retained him despite his public-drunkenness arrest a month after.
Democrats now say that any access to sensitive information was “unauthorized.” But how hard could it have been to get “unauthorized” access when House Intelligence Committee Dems wanted their staffers to have unbounded access? In 2016, they wrote a letter to an appropriations subcommittee seeking funding so their staffers could obtain “Top Secret — Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearances. TS/SCI is the highest-level security classification. Awan family members were working for a number of the letter’s signatories.
Democratic members, of course, would not make such a request without coordination with leadership. Did I mention that the ranking member on the appropriations subcommittee to whom the letter was addressed was Debbie Wasserman Schultz?
Why has the investigation taken so long? Why so little enforcement action until this week? Why, most of all, were Wasserman Schultz and her fellow Democrats so indulgent of the Awans?
The probe began in late 2016. In short order, the Awans clearly knew they were hot numbers. They started arranging the fraudulent credit-union loan in December, and the $283,000 wire transfer occurred on January 18. In early February, House security services informed representatives that the Awans were suspects in a criminal investigation. At some point, investigators found stolen equipment stashed in the Rayburn House Office Building, including a laptop that appears to belong to Wasserman Schultz and that Imran was using. Although the Awans were banned from the Capitol computer network, not only did Wasserman Schultz keep Imran on staff for several additional months, but Meeks retained Alvi until February 28 — five days before she skedaddled to Lahore.
Strange thing about that: On March 5, the FBI (along with the Capitol Police) got to Dulles Airport in time to stop Alvi before she embarked. It was discovered that she was carrying $12,400 in cash. As I pointed out this week, it is a felony to export more than $10,000 in currency from the U.S. without filing a currency transportation report. It seems certain that Alvi did not file one: In connection with her husband’s arrest this week, the FBI submitted to the court a complaint affidavit that describes Alvi’s flight but makes no mention of a currency transportation report. Yet far from making an arrest, agents permitted her to board the plane and leave the country, notwithstanding their stated belief that she has no intention of returning.
Many congressional staffers are convinced that they’d long ago have been in handcuffs if they pulled what the Awans are suspected of. Nevertheless, no arrests were made when the scandal became public in February. For months, Imran has been strolling around the Capitol. In the interim, Wasserman Schultz has been battling investigators: demanding the return of her laptop, invoking a constitutional privilege (under the speech-and-debate clause) to impede agents from searching it, and threatening the Capitol Police with “consequences” if they don’t relent. Only last week, according to Fox News, did she finally signal willingness to drop objections to a scan of the laptop by federal investigators. Her stridency in obstructing the investigation has been jarring.
As evidence has mounted, the scores of Democrats for whom the Awans worked have expressed no alarm. Instead, we’ve heard slanderous suspicions that the investigation is a product of — all together now — “Islamophobia.” But Samina Gilani, the Awan brothers’ stepmother, begs to differ. Gilani complained to Virginia police that the Awans secretly bugged her home and then used the recordings to blackmail her. She averred in court documents that she was pressured to surrender cash she had stored in Pakistan. Imran claimed to be “very powerful” — so powerful he could order her family members kidnapped.
We don’t know if these allegations are true, but they are disturbing. The Awans have had the opportunity to acquire communications and other information that could prove embarrassing, or worse, especially for the pols who hired them. Did the swindling staffers compromise members of Congress? Does blackmail explain why were they able to go unscathed for so long?
And as for that sensitive information, did the Awans send American secrets, along with those hundreds of thousands of American dollars, to Pakistan?
This is no run-of-the-mill bank-fraud case.

Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s top information technology (IT) aide was arrested Monday attempting to board a flight to Pakistan after wiring $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to that country.
He attempted to leave the country hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group revealed that he is the target of an FBI investigation, and the FBI apprehended him at the airport.
Credit union officials permitted the wire to go through, and his wife has already fled the country to Pakistan, after police confronted her at the airport and found $12,000 in cash hidden in her suitcase but did not stop her from boarding, court documents show.
“On January 18, 2017 at 12:09 pm, an international wire transfer request form was submitted [at the Congressional Federal Credit Union] at the Longworth House Office Building in the District of Columbia, in the amount of $283,000.00, to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan,” according to an affidavit obtained by TheDCNF.
Imran Awan, a Pakistani-born IT aide, had access to all emails and files of dozens of members of Congress, as well as the password to the iPad that Wasserman Schultz used for Democratic National Committee business before she resigned as its head in July 2016.
In March, his wife Hina Alvi, who also was on the House payroll, withdrew her children from school and left the country, the affidavit says. The Capitol Police confronted her at the airport but could not stop her. “U.S. Customs and Border Protection conducted a search of Alvi’s bags immediately prior to her boarding the plane and located a total of $12,400.00 in U.S. cash inside. Alvi was permitted to board the flight to Qatar and she and her daughters have not returned to the United States,” the affidavit says. “Alvi had numerous pieces of luggage with her, including cardboard boxes… Your affiant does not believe that Alvi has any intention to return to the United States.”
Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, four of his relatives appeared on the payroll of other Democrats at inflated salaries, but Democratic staffers said they were rarely seen at work. They collected $4 million in taxpayer salaries since 2009.
House authorities told members in February that Imran and his relatives were suspects in a criminal investigation into theft and IT abuses, and they were banned from the Capitol network.
Wasserman Schultz has refused to fire Imran, despite being a known criminal suspect in a cybersecurity probe for months, and has blocked Capitol Police from searching a laptop they confiscated because it was tied to him.
TheDCNF reported Sunday night that the FBI had joined the investigation and seized smashed hard drives from Imran’s home. The next day, the FBI apprehended him at Dulles Airport after noticing that he had purchased a ticket to Pakistan, via Qutar.
The affidavit says he was charged with bank fraud involving fraudulently taking out mortgages, which was one of several financial schemes TheDCNF has detailed. It appears to be a placeholder for future charges, spurred because of the attempt to leave the country, and does not mention his work for Congress, which is the investigation’s primary focus.
As TheDCNF has reported, the Awans own numerous rental properties that often have multiple mortgages taken out on them, and they have told renters they want payments in untraceable ways. The charging documents say Imran’s wife Hina Alvi, who also made $165,000 working for House Democrats, took out a second mortgage against a house from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by falsely claiming it was her “principal residence” and that she will “occupy” the property, and also fraudulently reported no rental income on her taxes.
A renter told the FBI “they paid approximately $2,000 per month for rent and that the rent check was written to Suriaya Begum. Based on information and belief, I know that Begum is Alvia’s mother,” an FBI agent wrote.
The agent also said Imran appears to have applied for the loan in his wife’s name.
Democratic members of Congress, including Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York, have suggested that police had framed the Pakistani-born brothers out of Islamophobia. Yet his own stepmother, a devout Muslim, filed court documents accusing him of using high-tech devices to wiretap her and extorting her (see p. 23 of court documents in that case). A dozen people who have dealt with Imran painted a picture in interviews with TheDCNF of a charming, “cunning” extrovert who bragged about his power among Democratic officials and who seemed to have an unquenchable thirst for cash.
The affidavit also paints him as an overly confident con artist, saying he listed his House phone number when initiating the wire transfer, and pretended to be a woman — his wife — on the phone when a Congressional Federal Credit Union questioned the transfer. “The person answering the call, who was a male, pretended that he was Alvi. On the call, the [bank] representative asked the man to verify the address of where the wire was being sent and the purpose of the outgoing wire,” the document says.
Imran claimed the $300,000 was for “funeral arrangements.”
“The CFCU representative then stated that ‘funeral arrangements’ may not be an acceptable reason for the wire. The male speaking to the representative then responded that he would look online for an acceptable reason for the wire. After a long pause, the male said that the reason for the wire was ‘buying property.’ The representative accepted that reason and initiated the wire transfer to Pakistan.”
Fox News was first to report the arrest. TheDCNF has done 20 stories on the brothers since February — linked below — including reporting that Imran’s wife had fled.
Bill Miller, spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, told TheDCNF that Awan “was arraigned today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on one count of bank fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344. He pled not guilty and was released pursuant to a high-intensity supervision program. The conditions of release are that he receive a GPS monitor, he abide by a curfew of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., and that he not leave a 50-mile radius of his residence in Virginia. Awan was also ordered to turn over all of his passports.”
Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman, David Damron, did not immediately return a request for comment.
See if your member of Congress is on the chart below. The Awan brothers could read all emails sent and received by these members, as well as all files on their staffers’ computers.
Bernie Sanders & Wife Now Under FBI Investigation
POSTED BY: SAM DI GANGI
23 JUNE 2017
Where there is smoke, there is fire. Is that not what we keep hearing from Democrats, progressives, and even left-leaning Independents like Senator Bernie Sander (I-VT)? Now that he and his wife Jane are under investigation by the F.B.I. over bank loans, DC is certainly seeing the billows and puffs in the air.
The pair had said prior that they committed no fraud in getting bank loans “for the now defunct Burlington College,” the Daily Wire reports today. The Senate office of Mr. Sanders also chimed in, calling the accusation “nonsense.”
The truth is coming out and it looks bad for Jane Sanders.
Most laughable is that the mad scientist looking Senator from Vermont blames a Trump campaign manager for the rumor. So, besides using the “blame Trump” excuse, Sanders wants the world to believe HIM about HIS college problems, but he wants us to condemn the President for Trump University failing (as if he wanted it to happen).
The lawyer that Sanders and his wife are blaming, Brady Toensing, did nothing other than seeking an investigation in a letter to the U.S Attorney for Vermont. He did not create the story, he merely desired to see it looked into.
A friend of Sanders as well as his top advisor Jeff Weaver said that the Senator is lawyering up. They even have Jane Sanders getting legal council from Larry Robbins, the man who represented Lewis “Scooter” Libby.
The “Request for an Investigation into Apparent Federal Bank Fraud” is a four-page letter sent by Toensing saying that Jane Sanders “orchestrated” the buying of 33 acres along “Lake Champlain in Burlington to expand the school.” Her husband served there as Mayor, we are told.
Mrs. Sanders stands accused of lying “and inflated nearly $2 million she said donors had pledged to repay” in order to make sure that she obtained the $10 million dollar loan.
The letter alleges that she “successfully and intentionally engaged in a fraudulent scheme to actively conceal and misrepresent material facts from a federal financial institution,” and requested an investigation into banking fraud.
Worse still, a second letter claims that the Bern himself put pressure on the bank to make sure that his wife got approved. The F.B.I. wants to know if he helped his wife get one of those loans, which is the point of the investigation.
Burlington College past president Carol Moore conveyed to Vermont Public Radio, “I was contacted and spoke with an FBI agent numerous times last spring, again last summer, recently, maybe a month ago.”
She also told Politico that any accusation that condemns Mr. or Mrs. Sanders on this matter is “ridiculous,” as well as “false.”
While that may be the case, perhaps Sanders is wishing that he has not been so hard on Trump University’s failing grade now that the shoe is on the other foot.

Senator Refuses To Release Emails Showing Communication With GOP Shooter
Posted by Layla Velasquez |
Jun 28, 2017
Senator Dick Durbin admits that Hodgkinson contacted him via e-mail 16 times over the past 8 years, but refuses to release those message to the public.
Baseball field shooter James Hodgkinson left behind few clues as to his point, or motives for blasting gunfire onto an open field of highly ranking government officials.
Those clues, or the decided absence of them, leave the rest of the world to speculate that this was the work of a mentally unstable man, that had no real point other than to murder someone—anyone—-who loosely fit his broad band of grievances. Not exactly the model for a particularly effective political statement, but, hey, the medium is the message, it seems.
He did however, according to the Associated Press, visit the offices of a few lawmakers that he believed were more likewise more sympathetic to his particular concoction of crazy.
The Associated Press reported, “Hodgkinson also visited the office of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whose campaign he had worked on as a volunteer, and was in email contact with the two Democratic senators from his home state.”
James Hodgkinson sent numerous e-mails to Senators he believed had his values. But, according to recipient Senator Dick Durbin, there was nothing to indicate his future plans.
Those two Democratic Senators would be Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth. The Daily Caller attempted to contact Durbin’s office, and received the following response, “Mr. Hodgkinson contacted our office to state his opinion on a variety of legislation over the years. Those emails were all given to USCP and are part of the current investigation.”
Ben Marter, a spokesman for Senator Durbin, also confirmed to the Chicago Tribune that the e-mails existed, but likewise would not give them up.
“He contacted our office to state his opinion on a variety of issues over the years, twice during that timeframe (from late March to this week),” Marter said. ”Never in person just constituent emails.”
The 16 e-mails have already been turned over to the Capitol Police, and in the meantime, Durbin’s office won’t release them to the media.
Reports state that there were 16 e-mails, over the course of 8 years. The reported communications were never to a particular staffer, but came through the contact page on the Senator’s website. Matter confirmed that the messages were simply sent to the Capitol Police for review.
What is in those e-mails?
In interview with the 21st Show last month, Durbin did discuss the content. He said they reviewed the e-mails before turning them over to the police, and said that there were no warning signs that he would resort to violence.
“Here’s a man for eight years who expresses himself to me in private emails and never once crosses a line where I would say, ‘Wait a minute, I want to take look at this man, I want to turn this over to somebody,’” Durbin said. “The fact that people are politically involved, and they may even be emotional about political involvement, does not in itself explain crossing that divide into violent and deadly conduct. Clearly, there’s more to the story as to why he camped out in Alexandria and waited for that moment.”
Durbin also said that the e-mails were highly detailed, and that there was no indication that given his background level or education, that he would have been informed enough to discuss those issues.
“My guess is now that I’ve read more about him is that he was repeating or forwarding emails from some other source,” Durbin said.
Hopkinson’s laptop and cell phone were also confiscated from the scene, and Capitol Police have not released any information as to the contents of these electronic devices, if they were erased, or if there had been telling e-mails.
Hodgkinson was a hardcore Bernie Sanders supporter who snuck into the GOP Congressional baseball practice field earlier this month. He asked if the players were Republicans or Democrats, and when informed they were in fact Republicans, proceed to open fire onto the field.
He seriously injured Majority Whip Steve Scalise, and a couple of other aides, but no one was killed. Capitol Police, along with Scalise’s security detail, quelled the disturbance rather quickly resulting in the shooter’s death after a ten minute round.
The entire incident was a wake up call throughout Congress on how bitter the partisan divisiveness appears to the American public. Although, once the Kumbaya moment subsided, Congress went back to their usual tricks, such as Democratic Chairman Phil Montag, who was caught on hidden tape, saying, “I’m glad he got shot. … I wish he was (expletive) dead…his whole job is to … convince Republicans to (expletive) kick people off (expletive) health care.” Montag later apologized and has been removed from his post.
Then, the issue was brought up that what saved the entire incident from being a massacre, was that Scalise, who ranked higher than the other politicians, had his own security detail. Now, Congress is trying to pass a bill stating that everyone should get security guards, and all sorts of high tech equipment, at the expense of about $15 million to the American taxpayer. Yep, government is back to normal.
Senator Duckworth’s office said they received no correspondence from Hodgkinson. There is currently no word when, or if, that correspondence will be released to the public.
Biden’s Niece Gets Slap On The Wrist, Probation After Stealing More Than $100K In Scam
Posted by Layla Velasquez | Jun 12, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Caroline Biden, the niece of former Vice President Joe Biden, appeared in a Manhattan Court for stealing over $100,000 in a credit card scam.
Apparently, Joe Biden’s niece is a bit of a troublemaker. The 29-year-old Georgetown University graduate and relation to former United States Vice President Joe Biden, pled guilty Friday to over $110,000 in credit card theft.
In April 2015, Caroline Biden received permission to borrow a credit card from a friend, a victim unnamed in media reports. Biden was authorized to make a $672 purchase at C.O. Bigelow Apothecary on Sixth Avenue, located in New York’s chic Greenwich Village.
Bigelow Apothecary is a swanky, self-described “counter-cultural” New York boutique/drugstore that offers trendy essential oils, bath and body care, skincare, fragrances, candles, healing remedies, prescriptions, and unusual beauty products.
Biden made the purchase and then used the credit card to open a revolving line of credit at the retailer. It is unclear how she obtained other identifying information such as a social security number and photo identification. But she succeeded in opening the account. Over the course of the next year, Biden went on a “buying binge” and used the fraudulent account to rack up $110, 810.04 in purchases, the New York Post reports.
The Georgetown graduate leaves the court in 2013, after receiving “conditional dismissal,” for attempting to assault a police officer and resisting arrest.
She was arrested May 5 and appeared in court Friday. However, her defense lawyer Ira London succeeded in getting her a deal. Biden was originally charged with grand larceny and petty larceny. She appeared before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Kevin McGrath and pled guilty. But attorney London succeeded in keeping her out of jail.
If Biden commits to paying back all the money and staying out of trouble in the meantime, she can come back to court and the grand larceny charge will be dropped. Then, she could re-enter a plea of guilty to petty larceny, and simply receive two years of probation. It sounds like a pretty sweet deal, although how she intends to pay back over $100,000 in the given period of one year seems to be a looming question. There is no immediate information regarding Biden’s occupation.
James and Sara Biden, Caroline’s parents, are prominent Philadelphia millionaires. James is the younger brother of former United States Vice President Joe Biden.
But, this isn’t the first time Biden has been in trouble. In 2013, she was arrested for attacking a cop, resisting arrest, and obstruction of justice She got into an altercation with her roommate, Adrienne Reynolds, over Biden owing rent money on their upscale Tribeca apartment. The cops were called, and Biden didn’t go willingly and even took a swing at the female cop who was trying to arrest her.
“I know my rights, I shouldn’t be handcuffed. You don’t know who you’re doing this to. Don’t touch me!” she was quoted as yelling in a massive temper tantrum. No one was hurt, so most of the charges were conditionally dismissed. She was given six months of probation and required to undergo anger management therapy.
“She’s truly sorry for what she did. There’s no question of what went on and she’s truly remorseful,” her lawyer James Liguori said at the time.
But Biden couldn’t personally attend her hearing because she was undergoing inpatient therapy for her “issues.” When she was transferred from the police station, to a the hospital, she inexplicably covered herself in a white blanket, leading to a chilling photo .
Biden being transferred from the police station to the hospital.
Her lawyers explained that she was being treated at an “out-of-state,” facility. It turns out, she was doing her second time around at Caron Renaissance Ocean Drive, a ritzy rehabilitation facility in Del-Ray Florida. A stay at Caron costs $35,000 for the first month, and $18,000 per month for every month afterward, the New York Post reports. According to the Caron website, there are two swimming pools, daily housekeeping, and an executive chef preparing all meals. Its marketing material reads more like a five-star hotel than a hospital.
Biden told the judge at the time that she was there for anger management, but according to the New York Post, the facility treats anger management only as it relates to drug or alcohol addiction. Biden’s friends admitted to media outlets at the time that she had problems with pills and alcohol.
Her friend Paul Johnson told the New York Post at the time, that, “The pressure of being Joe Biden’s niece made her totally unravel. It’s a desire for attention, a cry for help. She’s a very complicated girl who has a lot of feelings and a lot of issues.”
Her legal team even used the world “issues” euphemistically, hinting that there were multiple problems. But in any event, they submitted her sealed and sworn affidavit to the court, she went through rehab, and the charges were eventually dismissed.
Biden’s father is James Biden Sr., the financier brother to the former Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden. London, her lawyer on the credit card case, has refused to comment. Although it is worth noting that such a charge would normally include up to a year in jail time.
San Francisco News Outlet Doesn’t Know It’s A Secret, Exposes PAID Resistance Against Trump

A California newspaper has acknowledged that protesters are often paid. Maybe the Democrats will stop pretending that the anti-Trump protests are an honest outpouring of feeling.
A new breed of radical defiance has roared to life in California. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that it’s now a common practice for businesses in the area to become politically engaged by paying their employees to join protests.
The left has brushed off accusations of a paid resistance movement for years. Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, said during February’s Conservative Political Action Conference that paid protesters: “All share one thing in common: They’re angry, they’re militant and they’re willing to engage in criminal acts to get what they want.”
Elite Bay Area firms now offer employees paid time off for political and civic duties. Protesting, voting, and running for office are encouraged. While the policies are not explicitly anti-Trump, the bulk of people taking time off work to march in the streets are young Democrats.
“Activism and civic engagement are on the rise, and people sometimes have to choose between their jobs and focusing on their careers and doing something they’re passionate about,” said Amna Pervez, director of recruiting and retention for data-management firm Fauna. “We should not only allow but encourage, members of our team to do that without worrying that they’re risking their career. We want our employees to participate in the political process. This is important.”
The anti-Trump protests featured in the media weren’t all that they seemed to be. The man pictured here might have been paid for his dramatic action.
Most of the companies with Fauna’s mindset are small, niche businesses with a liberal workforce.
The left prefers to pretend that the raucous anti-Trump protests roiling the country are the result of pure, unadulterated hatred for the president. It’s deeply embarrassing to admit that the agitators are really paid actors who would have been as comfortable lobbying for President Trump as against him.
“Democracy is a participatory institution; it’s not just something that takes place every four years when you have a candidate in a race,” said Adam Kleinberg, CEO of San Francisco marketing firm Traction. The company allows employees to take two paid “Days of Action” per year.
“I was certainly motivated because I think Trump is a man with dangerous ideas and low moral character, but I also didn’t want to be a hypocrite and prevent people from expressing whatever political views they may hold,” he said. “Through organized protest, citizens have the ability to apply pressure when laws or government bodies are not really applying the will of the people to the legislation they put forth.”
President Trump has repeatedly accused mainstream news outlets of covering up evidence of paid protesters.
It’s not really a “protest” if attendees are being paid. The stereotypical California actor is desperate for gigs. The fact that millennials are willing to accept money for marching through the streets isn’t a reflection on Trump’s popularity. A sour bunch of radicals on the left are trying to create a false narrative.
“People were wishing that I was dropped off in an (Islamic State) territory, calling me an idiotic libtard, candy-ass, saying they hope we’ll go out of business. Really nasty stuff,” Kleinberg told the Chronicle when asked how Traction’s new policy was received. “We’re in marketing, so we talk all the time about making an emotional connection with people. And once we announced (the policy change) it became clear that we struck a powder keg.”
Plumping a protest with a staff of paid agitators is a mockery of real civic engagement. Kleinberg’s company is being criticized because he’s toying with serious matters. If his employees choose to become engaged with a political movement it should be done on their own time.
Anti-Trump protesters often clutch vicious signs. The left no longer strives for tolerance for everyone.
“It’s not sufficient anymore to say we’re a profit engine and we’re making money and screw everything else. It’s part of our responsibility to be engaged, to be active,” said William Morgan, CEO, and founder of cloud infrastructure startup Buoyant. “We as individuals, we as companies exist in an ecosystem. We’re only here because there’s this environment around us. It can’t just be a one-way relationship.”
Judge: Wasserman Schultz Election Tainted By Illegal Ballot Destruction
Scandal follows former DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz wherever she goes. It turns out that her involvement in “rigging” the Democratic primaries for her girl, Hillary Clinton, may not have been her only act of wrongdoing in the 2016 election season.
Wasserman Schultz herself had an election to win that year, and she even had to overcome a primary challenge from Tim Canova. Though she won that election handily, Canova was convinced that there was something fishy about the results. Last year, he filed to see the paper ballots from the election. Election officials did not comply. Later, Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes said they would be happy to meet his demands; he would just have to fork over a measly $72,000 to pay for the production of the requested records.
Canova sued…and at some time after his lawsuit was filed, Snipes took the extraordinary step of actually destroying the very ballots he was requesting.
This is what we learned from a Florida Circuit Court hearing this week, where Judge Raag Singhal condemned Snipes and her office of violating the law by destroying ballots. Singhal said that the law requires that ballots be kept for a period no shorter than 22 months; Snipes destroyed them in just 12. Singhal said that Snipes was further in error because of the lawsuit requesting the ballots. Once that suit was filed, he said, only a court order should have allowed for the destruction of the ballots.
Snipes, the Judge said, “has not presented any evidence refuting that the public records sought were destroyed while this case was pending before the court.”
Instead of presenting that evidence, Snipes relied on an excuse – she didn’t intentionally destroy the ballots; they were simply in boxes marked incorrectly. Those boxes were put out with the trash by mistake.
The judge said it didn’t really matter one way or the other.
“Defendant’s lack of intent to destroy evidence while this case was pending is irrelevant,” he concluded.
As for Canova, whose lawsuit triggered the destruction of the ballots, he thinks there’s one clear path forward as it pertains to Snipes’ job.
“I think dismissal is an appropriate remedy,” Canova said.
He is challenging Wasserman Schultz as an independent candidate this year. Win or lose, we predict he’ll at least have a better shot at a fair election.
Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cashFar fewer making contributions to Donald Trump, analysis shows
By Dave LevinthalMichael Beckel
12:00 pm, October 17, 2016 Updated: 2:17 pm, October 18, 2016
New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum, a newly minted Pulitzer Prize winner, spent the Republican National Convention pen-pricking presidential nominee Donald Trump as a misogynist shyster running an “ugly and xenophobic campaign.”
What Nussbaum didn’t disclose in her dispatches: she contributed $250 to Democrat Hillary Clinton in April.
On the nation’s left coast, Les Waldron, an Emmy Award-winning assignment editor at television station KFMB, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, swung right in July, shooting $28 to Trump.
And Carole Simpson, a former ABC “World News Tonight” anchor who in 1992 became the first African-American woman to moderate a presidential debate, is not moderate about her personal politics: the current Emerson College distinguished journalist-in-residence and regular TV news guest has givenClinton $2,800.
Conventional journalistic wisdom holds that reporters and editors are referees on politics’ playing field — bastions of neutrality who mustn’t root for Team Red or Team Blue, either in word or deed.
But during this decidedly unconventional election season, during which “the media” has itself become a prominent storyline, several hundred news professionals have aligned themselves with Clinton or Trump by personally donating money to one or the other.
In all, people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism — have combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis.
Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton: About 430 people who work in journalism have, through August, combined to give about $382,000 to the Democratic nominee, the Center for Public Integrity’s analysis indicates.
About 50 identifiable journalists have combined to give about $14,000 to Trump. (Talk radio ideologues, paid TV pundits and the like — think former Trump campaign manager-turned-CNN commentator Corey Lewandowski — are not included in the tally.)
Generally, the law obligates federal candidates only to disclose the names of people making contributions of more than $200 during a single election cycle, along with their addresses and employer and occupation. That means it’s likely that many more journalists have given the Clinton or Trump campaigns cash, but in amounts too small to trigger reporting requirements.
Together, these journalist-donors work for news organizations great and small, from The New York Times to sleepy, small-town dailies. While many of them don’t primarily edit or report on political news, some do...(Read More...)
Nashville mayor who had affair with bodyguard resigns after pleading guilty to criminal theft
She lost her job as mayor of Nashville, had her rising reputation damaged by a messy two-year affair with her bodyguard and pleaded guilty to theft. But at least Megan Barry has a really good mug shot.

The telegenic former chief executive of country music’s hometown was booked Tuesday before she pleaded guilty to misappropriating more than $10,000 in city funds to carry on her scandalous affair with Robert Forrest, who supervised the mayor’s security detail. Barry, 54, announced her resignation soon after.
"While my time as your mayor concludes today, my unwavering love and sincere affection for this wonderful city and its great people shall never come to an end," an emotional Barry said as she resigned.
She concluded: “God bless this wonderful city. I love you Nashville.”
Earlier Tuesday, Barry agreed to reimburse the city $11,000 in restitution, and serve three years of probation after pleading guilty to criminal theft.
"Thank you judge," she said after entering the plea in a Nashville courtroom. "I appreciate you."
In an unusual move, District Attorney Glenn Funk handled the case personally, the Tennessean reported. He said that “had this case gone to trial, witnesses are available who would testify that in March 2016 and January 2018 Megan Barry caused over $10G but less than $60G in Metro Nashville city funds to be expended unlawfully on Mr. Robert Forrest.”
Barry was seen a rising star among Democrats until her admission of the affair with Forrest derailed her first term in office. She became mayor in September 2015.
In a separate court proceeding Tuesday, Forrest also pleaded guilty to criminal theft in connection with the affair.
He agreed to pay $45,000 restitution to the city, the Tennessean reported. He was also ordered to served three years probation.
NUDE PHOTOS FOUND ON PHONE OF NASHVILLE MAYOR'S EX-LOVER, INVESTIGATORS SAY
Barry's departure elevated Vice Mayor David Briley to the job and he was sworn in on Tuesday. Briley, a Democrat like his predecessor, promised transparency and said he would work to earn back the public's trust.
Barry admitted to the affair Jan. 31. At the time she vowed to remain in office.
“I know that God will forgive me but Nashville doesn’t have to,” she said then.

With her resignation on Tuesday, Barry is the first mayor in Nashville to leave office before the end of their term in nearly a century.
The revelation of the affair led to an internal investigation, which found probable cause that a nude photo and partially nude photo of a woman found on Forrest's work cellphone were taken while he was working and the two were engaging in their relationship while he was on duty.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation did not identify the woman in the photos and Barry has said that if the photos are of her, they were taken without her knowledge or permission.
Metro Nashville Police records show Forrest's overtime more than doubled in the budget year after Barry was elected in September 2015. Barry said the affair began in spring 2016, an affidavit said.
Barry has not said when the affair ended, only that it's over. Her husband, a college professor, has tweeted in support of her since the scandal broke.

Forrest, who had spent more than 31 years with Metro Nashville Police and supervised the mayor's security detail over three administrations, has retired. His wife is divorcing him.
LAW FIRM SELECTED TO INVESTIGATE NASHVILLE MAYOR'S USE OF PUBLIC MONEY DURING AFFAIR
A special committee of Nashville city council members was also probing Barry and Forrest's travel and overtime expenses.
In addition, a group of local activists has filed an ethics complaint against Barry. They claim that her relationship with Forrest compromised her in making decisions related to law enforcement.

Nancy Pelosi Heckled At Town Hall While Criticizing Tax Reform: “How Much Are You Worth Nancy?”
Democrat Leader Arrested in FBI Sting
By Onan Coca January 30, 2018
Hallandale Beach, Florida Mayor Joy Cooper, a Democrat, has been arrested in an FBI sting operation that saw her rack up some pretty serious charges.The mayor faces charges of money laundering, official misconduct, and exceeding limits on campaign contributions. Each of the charges is a 3rd-degree felony, she’s also been charged with soliciting contributions in a government building, which is a first-degree misdemeanor.
From ABC 10:
According to the Broward County state attorney’s office, FBI agents posing as developers and business owners met with Cooper and former attorney and lobbyist Alan Koslow, who pleaded guilty to a federal money-laundering conspiracy charge in a case with the FBI that was part of their “Red Chip” sting operation to target political corruption in South Florida.
Investigator Kate Abrahamsen wrote in the arrest affidavit that Cooper solicited campaign contributions from Koslow that exceeded the legal limit, accepted money that she believed were the proceeds of unlawful activity and falsified campaign treasury reports in September and October of 2012.
Abrahmsen reported Koslow was unaware that the wealthy California land developers seeking political favor for commercial land projects were really undercover FBI agents. He reportedly also set up meetings with Cooper at her home, at the Flash Back Diner, at the Diplomat and handed her 20 checks “from a bunch of Russian names” at a Hallandale Chamber of Commerce event.
In the wake of her arrest, Governor Rick Scott (R-FL) has stepped in and suspended the Mayor, meaning she will not be able to perform any of her public duties until the suspension is over.
“Joy Cooper is prohibited from performing any official act, duty or function of public office; from receiving any pay or allowance; and from being entitled to any of the emoluments or privileges of public office during the period of this suspension,” the Governor wrote in his executive order.
Another day, another Democrat hung out to dry for their corruption.
This kind of thing seems to happen a lot… to Democrats.
Report: Huma Abedin may stay married to Weiner… to stay out of prison
January 11, 2018
Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, and convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner, withdrew their divorce suit this week. Some lawyers believe the decision was driven by ulterior motives.
By remaining married, Abedin and Weiner can invoke the spousal privilege to avoid testifying against each other.
Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s aide and protege, came under renewed scrutiny late last year for mishandling classified information.
A recently released trove of State Department emails revealed that the top Clinton aide forwarded sensitive information including passwords to her government laptop. Abedin also sent mail to her Yahoo account at a time when Yahoo was compromised by a series of hacks.
Aide and AbedinIdentical statements from their lawyers on Wednesday cited their desire to protect their 6-year old child by settling outside of court. But there could be another reason, PageSix reports:
But family law expert Michael Stutman said they’d still have to file a divorce settlement in court for it to be legally binding.
Stutman, a prominent Manhattan divorce lawyer who’s not involved in the case, speculated that Weiner and Abedin might want to stay married to invoke spousal immunity.
The PageSix report continues:
Two more leading divorce lawyers agreed that spousal immunity may have been the reason for withdrawing the case.
“He easily could be called in by a grand jury to testify against her, so by dropping the lawsuit, he can exercise the marital privilege,” matrimonial lawyer Suzanne Bracker told The Post.
“When you’re married to someone, you cannot be compelled to testify against them.”
A third attorney, Bonnie Rabin, said the “spousal privilege issue is out there considering the investigations.”
Abedin filed for divorce hours after Weiner pleaded guilty in May to sexting with a minor. Weiner is serving a nearly two-year sentence in a Massachusetts jail.
A political marriagePresident Trump tweeted last week, calling for the Justice Department to investigate Abedin for compromising classified information.
The State Department late last year released thousands of emails found on Weiner’s laptop.
Several of those emails were heavily redacted by the State Department before their release, speaking to the sensitivity of their contents.
The Daily Caller reported that at least one of those emails contained passwords to Abedin’s government laptop.
Abedin seems to be doing a-ok for now, despite allegedly lying to the FBI. The Justice Department recently re-opened the investigation into Clinton’s emails.
Given the history of corruption surrounding the Clintons and their confidants, this news isn’t surprising. To some politicians, marriage is little more than an expedient.
BOMBSHELL Drops About Comey
That’s an assessment from Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, who wrote a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday demanding answers about the handling of memos that Comey wrote following his conversations with President Trump.
Grassley also pointed to past reporting that Comey gave four memos of his conversations with Trump to a friend, Columbia law professor Daniel Richman.
“If it’s true that Professor Richman had four of the seven memos, then in light of the fact that four of the seven memos the Committee reviewed are classified, it would appear that at least one memo the former FBI director gave Professor Richman contained classified information,” Grassley writes.

Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC keeps money from child sex trafficking website
December 18, 2017
Shawn / CCL
With sexual misconduct scandals burning through Washington, one would think members of Congress would be walking on eggshells to avoid being caught up in the mess. But new information about former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) shows that she’s profiting, at least politically, from something arguably even worse.
Documents revealed on Sunday show that Nancy Pelosi’s SuperPAC received massive donations from a website dealing in child sex trafficking – and it’s refusing to return the money.
Pelosi Profits from Child VictimsIn 2016, Kamala Harris, then-attorney general of California, broughtfelony charges against the owners of Backpage.com, a classified ad clearinghouse similar to Craigslist. Its owners were under fire for allowing ads for sex trafficking and prostitution — including that of children — in their “adult services” section.
The result of a bipartisan Senate investigation was an acknowledgmentthat Backpage “knowingly sold ads to pimps who coerced minors into prostitution,” and site was subsequently forced to remove its “adult services” section. But that didn’t stop the rest of the site from remaining a “hub” for the sex trade.
The Washington Times reports that police in Detroit arrested two men who were using the site to run an underage prostitution ring last week, and a Chicago man was arrested in June after using Backpage to sell a 16-year-old girl, who was later killed by a “client.”
Allowing these crimes have proven very profitable for the site’s owners, however. According to the charges against the two owners and two additional shareholders, Backpage makes $2.5 million per month in California alone — and the site’s owners use that money to back big-time Dem politicians.
It seems that the Democrats aren’t concerned about where that money comes from, however. One of the men who runs Backpage, James Larkin, sent $10,000 to Nancy Pelosi’s SuperPAC, House Majority PAC, in October 2016, and the group says it doesn’t plan to return the money.
Little ResponseThe PAC’s executive director, Charlie Kelly, told the Times that they couldn’t return the money: it’s already been spent.
“The contribution from James Larkin was received and spent during the 2016 election cycle. The allegations against Larkin are reprehensible, and [House Majority PAC] will not accept any future contributions from Larkin or his associates at Backpage.com,” Kelley said.
Further, Pelosi’s aide claims that the congresswoman “had no role in [Larkin’s] contribution” and “did not solicit this donation.”
Still, Pelosi has also made no comment about whether she will ask her SuperPAC to return the money — which it unarguably should do.
Pelosi Isn’t the Only OneThough Harris brought charges against Backpage’s owners, she herself was the recipient of the profits from child trafficking during her recent run for Senate. According to the Times, the site’s owners and their wives have contributed approximately $100,000 to specific Democrat candidates, and another $95,000 to the Democratic party itself since 2010.
Arizona and New Mexico’s Democratic Party organizations also received money from Backpage – but they also say the money has been spent.
Arizona Republican Party spokesperson Torunn Sinclair has said that this excuse is “absurd and disgusting.”
“They obviously have the cash to return this dirty money,” she told the Times. “They just don’t want to return it.”

Former Florida Democratic Congresswoman sentenced for ‘sham charity’ tax fraud
December 4, 2017
A long-serving Democratic congresswoman is going to jail over charity fraud.
Former Florida congresswoman Corrine Brown was sentenced on Monday to five years in federal prison for a wire, mail, and tax fraud scheme that netted tens of thousands of dollars from a fake charity.
Brown duped charityBrown was convicted in May of stealing money from a fake charity, One Door for Education. The charity purported to help poor children get scholarships, but a majority of the money went right into the pockets of Brown and her co-conspirators.
Federal prosecutors were able to turn two key conspirators against Brown with a plea deal. Brown and her accomplices used the money to fund lavish parties and trips, according to prosecutors.
Brown claimed that she knew nothing about how the money was being handled, and blamed former chief of staff Elias “Ronnie” Simmons for the theft. Brown is also accused of lying on her tax returns.
Simmons testified against Brown alongside charity president Carla Wiley, who both pleaded guilty after receiving federal indictments for misusing the charity money. Simmons got 48 months in prison, and Wiley got 21 months.
“This is a sad day for everyone,” said U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan. “I was impressed with all the outpouring of support for you, and I think it’s a tribute to all the work you’ve done over the years. That’s what makes this all the more tragic.”
The 71-year old Democrat served in Congress for 25 years. She was convicted in May on 18 of 22 counts.
A not so subtle schemeBrown and Simmons were issued a subpoena in January 2016 allegingthat they used the charity for personal expenses. Of the more than $800,000 raised by the charity, they’d given only two $1,200 scholarships.
Simmons testified to the jury that he was told to deposit money from the charity to Brown’s personal account dozens of times, according to the Associated Press.
Corrigan called the sentencing “tragic”, citing Brown’s “admirable record of service” for community work over the years. But he was unyielding to pleas from Brown’s defense that the punishment be reduced, calling her actions “shameless.”
“This was a crime born out of entitlement and greed committed to ensure a lifestyle that was beyond their means,” he said during Monday’s sentencing hearing, according to the Times-Union.
The disgraceful crime buried the career of an ambitious congresswoman. When Brown was elected to the House in 1993, she was one of only three African-Americans from Florida to be elected to Congress since Reconstruction.
The scandal cost Brown her 2016 primary race. Brown was also given three years of probation.
Breaking: Informant Testimony Reveals Obama-Era Payments, Mueller Uranium Hand-Off
Posted by Mark Megahan | Nov 21, 2017 | Breaking News
Hillary Clinton and Robert Mueller were so close to the Uranium One scheme, if you pointed a Geiger counter at either one of them, it would squeal right off the scale. We knew already that Hillary is caught in the middle of a quid-pro-quo to sell uranium interests to Russia in exchange for $145 million dollars. The latest bombshell revelation is that then-FBI Director, Robert Mueller not only knew about Hillary’s Russian collusion, he muled some fissile material to Moscow for her as a favor.
Proving that the mainstream media actively conspires to prevent the public from learning the truth, a blatant smear campaign has been launched in the press against the FBI’s no longer confidential informant. Just one of the things they don’t want you to know is how involved FBI Director Mueller was. He currently is the witch smeller tasked with establishing, one way or another, Russian “collusion” with President Trump and his campaign.
One of the things William Douglas Campbell is supposed to testify about is that in September of 2009, Director Mueller “personally” delivered “a 10-gram sample of highly-enriched uranium to the Russian government.” This little courier job was ordered by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton herself and confirmed by a Wikileaks Twitter post referring to a State Department cable in May of this year.
Last night, The Hill published a story after reviewing actual evidence William Douglas Campbell plans to present as part of his upcoming testimony before two Congressional House subcommittees. According to their investigators, the evidence conflicts with “several media reports as well as statements by Justice officials.”
Officials at the Department of Justice have made statements to the press alleging that what Campbell has to say will be limited at best because he worked for a subsidiary, Tenex, not the larger firm. It turned out that he still managed to come up with quite a collection of evidence.
Director Mueller “personally” delivered “a 10-gram sample to the Russian government.
Enough to clearly show that the FBI had plenty of documentation that “Rosatom officials were engaged in criminality well before the Obama administration approved Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One.” The FBI documented $2.1 million in bribes Mikerin collected and then disbursed through “offshore shell companies in Cyprus, Latvia and Switzerland” that “ultimately benefited entities connected to Vladimir Putin.”
According to Yahoo News, Campbell “was considered so unreliable that prosecutors dropped him as a witness in an unrelated case involving Russian uranium sales,” citing unnamed sources in the Justice Department. Not so unreliable they couldn’t pay him though. The Justice Department wrote him a checkfor $51,000 as they closed out the last of the related bribery convictions in January of 2016.
Campbell’s attorney, Victoria Toensing, says “This is a smear job.” The real reason his testimony wasn’t used against Vadim Mikerin was “the Obama administration didn’t want to bring a big extortion case against Russia” that would feature Campbell’s testimony undermining the Uranium One sale. Instead, she asserts, “they covered it up.”
Hillary used her position on the Senate Armed Services Committee to threaten “to withhold aid.”
If any of Campbell’s evidence had seen the light of day, the sale of Uranium One would never have been approved. It would have been clear grounds for disqualification by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Mr. Campbell “helped the FBI record the first criminal activity by Rosatom officials inside its Tenex arm in November 2009, nearly an entire year before CFIUS approved Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One.”
It all started on September 6, 2005, when ex-President Bubba Clinton hooked up with a buddy from his Arkansas days, Canadian billionaire Frank Giustra. Along with an assistant to federal fugitive Marc Rich, who Clinton later pardoned on his last day of office, they met in Almaty, Kazakhstan. They were supposedly there to “help HIV/AIDS patients gain access to certain drug therapies,” except Kazakhstan didn’t have an HIV/AIDS problem. What they did have was $5 trillion in resources, including uranium.
Giustra used the opportunity to meet with Kazakhstan officials to work out mining deals with his company, UrAsia Energy Ltd. “The Giustra-Clinton Sustainable Growth Initiative” was born.
The very next day, Hillary used her position as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee to threaten “to withhold aid to Kazakhstan unless and until the UrAsia mining deal went forward.”
Giustra gave a little token of his appreciation to the Clinton Foundation.
The day after that, “UrAsia Energy Ltd was awarded Kazakhstan mining rights from Kazatomprom, the atomic energy agency for Kazakhstan” and “suddenly became the world’s largest uranium mining producer.” A short while later after the dust settled, Giustra gave a little token of his appreciation to the Clinton Foundation. $31.3 million dollars.
Robert Mueller came on the scene in August of 2006 when he opened an investigation into corruption and uranium smuggling involving the former Soviet Republics.
A few months later, in February of 2007, Kazatomprom’s boss, Mukhtar Dzhkishev, showed up on Bill Clinton’s Chappaqua doorstep to talk about a new deal with Giustra. Coincidentally, later that same month, Giustra sold his UrAsia Energy Ltd to Uranium One, but in some fancy footwork involving a “reverse merger,” he kept 60 percent controlling interest.
Soon after, Giustra and associates announced, “a recurring commitment to donate $100 million and half of future profits to the Clinton Foundation.” The arrangement paid off with an estimated $145 million in direct contributions to the Clintons.
On June 9, 2009, Kazatomprom Director Dzhkishev, was arrested by the Kazakhstan government on Uranium One corruption charges. Allegedly prompted by Vlad Putin’s desire to snatch the uranium out from under Kazakhstan’s dictator.
Because the move threatened the Uranium One sale to Rosatom, Hillary used her position as head of the State Department to once again threaten to withhold financial aid to Kazakhstan. Not surprisingly, they backed down and the deal went through. Three months later, Muller was muling uranium to Moscow as Hillary’s personal courier.
Investigation Into Obama-Era College President Exposes Massive Cover-Up
Posted by Austin Lewis | Nov 20, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Janet Napolitano served as the head of the Department of Homeland Security under Barack Obama. Her tenure as President of the University of California system has been marked by scandal and outcry.Janet Napolitano is not a new name in the political world. She first came to prominence when she represented the since-discredited Anita Hill in her claims of sexual harassment against US Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. In 1993, Bill Clinton appointed her as district attorney for the District of Arizona. In 2002, she became the Governor of Arizona, a position she left when the Obama White House tapped her for the leadership of the Department of Homeland Security.
After a number of scandals as head of the Department of Homeland Security, Napolitano resigned and was approved by the University of California Board of Regents to become the new president of the University of California school system. Since taking this position in 2013, the scandals have continued; she caused student strikes with a tuition hike, secretly installed network monitoring hardware on school computers, and is now at the center of a series of scandals including a secret 175 million dollar slush fund.
Much like her tenure at UC, Napolitano’s time as head of the Department of Homeland Security was riddled with scandal.
A state audit of the University of California and its 28 billion dollars in finances and assets revealed that Janet Napolitano had a secret fund of 175 million dollars, which she used to pay bonuses and retirement benefits for a small number of university administrators, payment far exceeding what other similar administrators received. Further, the fund was used to give out inappropriately exorbitant perks for employment, including $350-per-night hotel rooms, tickets to films and theater events, and publicly funded limousine rides.
Most maddening of all, this discovery came on the heels of a vote by the University of California, where a tuition hike of 2.5 percent was approved. This second tuition hike in Napolitano’s tenure as President of the UC system caused yet more protests from students in the UC system.
UC Santa Cruz as viewed from above. Initially, UC Santa Cruz complied with the state auditor, but under abuse from Napolitano, rescinded and redacted surveys before resubmitting them to the state auditor.
Just as disturbing, however, is the evidence that Janet Napolitano was manipulating the surveys sent out by the state auditor. These surveys were meant to be handed directly back to the state auditor. Napolitano instructed her chief of staff and deputy chief, Seth Grossman and Bernie Jones respectively, to instruct the schools to hand their survey responses into her office for review, after which they would allegedly be given to the auditor. Janet Napolitano made statements that it was not the time for the school system to “air their dirty laundry”.
Three of UC’s campuses edited out negative comments before handing the surveys off to Napolitano’s office, with another five actively removing negative comments and avoiding ranking Napolitano’s performance as president as “poor”.
To their credit, UC Santa Cruz attempted to follow the instructions of the state auditor, sending in their surveys without editing. Napolitano made a ‘furious’ phone call to UC Santa Cruz’s chancellor, demanding they retract their surveys, and the chancellor complied, submitting a second survey that changed many ‘poor’ ratings to ‘fair’ and ‘good’.
For their parts in the scandal, Grossman and Jones, both of whom acted on the orders of Napolitano, have since resigned. Napolitano, on the other hand, refuses to resign her position, even though she has abused the trust of the people of California and the students in the University of California system. Making matters worse, the Board of Regents have declined to remove her from the office she holds.
Spokeswoman Dianne Klein has delivered Napolitano’s message that she is taking responsibility for the scandal, but so far that ‘responsibility’ has not lead to actions to correct it, or to punish those responsible (such as Napolitano herself).
There is no word that the secret 175 million dollar slush fund will be dissolved, nor that Napolitano has learned anything about being a better steward of the money of California’s students and residents. Adding insult to injury, Napolitano’s office will receive a budget increase of 127.5 million dollars this year.
Seth Grossman, center, with the Chancellor of UCLA. Seth Grossman resigned amid the scandal concerning the hidden 175 million dollar fund and the manipulation of surveys from the schools.
For decades, UC was free for all California residents to attend. In recent years, tuition hikes have been repeatedly suggested as a way to raise more funds, and they have passed at least two hikes since Napolitano became the president. It is apparent that Napolitano is not taking appropriate care of the system, especially when she runs a 175 million dollar secret fund that is used to play favorites and enjoy expensive perks.
UC provides its chancellors and its president with mansions that they inhabit for free, along with six-figure incomes. For that kind of money and benefits package, they deserve to have honest leadership, not leadership that plays favorites and abuses their power of the purse. And the students deserve to have a President who is not constantly involved in sleazy scandals and avoiding responsibility for her poor leadership.
Russian Lawyer From Trump Tower Meeting Met With DNC Dossier Firm The Same Day
by: Guy Benson
Regular readers are aware that Democratic opposition research firm Fusion GPS has cropped up several times in my work over recent weeks, as the country seeks answers on Moscow's interference in the 2016 election (over which federal authorities may soon file charges against six Russian officialsresponsible for the DNC hack, the investigation of which was...strange, and possibly tainted by none other than Fusion GPS). Recall that the firm in question hired ex-British spy Christopher Steele who compiled a controversial, unverified, and at least partially discredited anti-Trump dossier that purportedly relied on information from high-level Russian sources (and whom the FBI continued to payuntil that highly questionable decision was publicly reported).
We learned last month that the Clinton campaign and DNC contributed funds for the file, destroying previous denials. Fusion GPS also represented the Russian government's interests on projects they say were unrelated to election meddling, though the periods of their involvement with Steele's dossier and with the Russian government overlapped. Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel has also written compellingly about Congressional Democrats' efforts to shield Fusion GPS from scrutiny. All of which is a prelude to this new reporting from Fox News correspondent Catherine Herridge:
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trump’s son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump. The opposition research firm has faced renewed scrutiny after litigation revealed that the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for that research. Congressional Republicans have since questioned whether that politically financed research contributed to the FBI’s investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – making Fusion’s 2016 contacts with Russian interests all the more relevant. The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya occurred during a critical period. At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying a former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.
But hours before the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016, Fusion co-founder and ex-Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson was with Veselnitskaya in a Manhattan federal courtroom, a confidential source told Fox News. Court records reviewed by Fox News, email correspondence and published reports corroborate the pair’s presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting...NBC News first reported that Veselnitskaya and Simpson were both at a hearing centered around another Fusion client, Russian oligarch Denis Katsyv. His company, Prevezon Holdings, was sanctioned against doing business in the U.S. for its alleged role in laundering more than $230 million...Fusion’s Simpson is believed to have been working with Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Soviet counter-intelligence officer turned Russian-American lobbyist, to overturn [unrelated] sanctions. Akhmetshin also attended the June 9 Trump Tower meeting, along with about a half-dozen others including Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, publicist Rob Goldstone, Natalia's Russian translator Anatoli Samochornov and Ike Kaveladze from a Russian-American real estate agency.

Google and George Soros: A Match Made in Globalist Valhalla
By Andrew West October 28, 2017
The news coming out of Silicon Valley in this day and age is terrifying enough on its own, but adding George Soros to the mix? That’s just cruel.Soros is the A1, ground zero, God Emperor of the globalism movement: A shady cabal of global elitists who would like nothing more than a handful of elected leaders to control the entirety of world government. While this sounds absolutely impossible on its face, the best example of what theses globalists are trying to achieve is already in place in Europe with the EU.
The EU, or European Union, is a governmental body that supersedes the sovereignty of individual European nations by consolidating power and currency into a single leadership group. Now, folks like Soros and other liberal billionaires, can skip the greasing of national palms and go straight to lubing up multinationalpoliticians to get whatever it is that they want – normally more consolidation of wealth via natural resources.
Outsides of the European Union, however, globalists have been using fear to conquer nations who would otherwise scoff at the proposition of relinquishing sovereignty. This can be achieved through the exploitation of massive, planetary fears such as “global warming” or terrorism. And the most effective way to spread those fears is through the control of the mainstream media.
In today’s uncertain world, the most valid way to control the media is by determining what is “fake news”, (the term du jour for opposition journalism), and what is “reliable”. To do so, you need non-partisan, impartial fact checkers, and it just so happens that George Soros is wealthy enough to have a hand in that game as well.
“Google is partnering with the International Fact-Checking Network, an organization run by the George Soros-funded Poynter Institute.
“Engadget reports that Google will be working with the Soros-funded Poynter Institute and the International Fact-Checking Network as the tech giant ramps up efforts to prevent the spread of misinformation and ‘fake news.’ The IFCN runs an annual fact-checking conference, funds fellowships, and trains fact-checkers. The group is also responsible for a number of guidelines and code of principles accepted by a wide range of media companies worldwide.
“Google’s partnership with the IFCN has three main aims: increasing the number of fact-checkers reviewing information, expanding the IFCN’s current code of principles in new regions, and offering free fact-checking tools to Google users to verify the information that they find on Google’s search engine.
“In order to increase the number of fact-checkers reviewing information on Google’s platform, the company plans to fund new fact-checking organizations, organize workshops around the world, and provide coaching to potential fact-checkers. Google discussed this plan, saying, ‘Ultimately, these partners can help make sure that the content on Google Search and Google News has been accurately fact-checked.’”
Of course this begs the question: Who will check the fact checkers?
There is no end in sight for the revolving door of truth and deception so long as globalist forces such as Soros continue to meddle in the public’s perception of political reality. Now, with Google falling under the grotesque grip of the aging globalist Soros, is there any truth left for us to gather around?
Illegal Aliens Crash Nancy Pelosi’s DACA Press Conference: ‘All of Us or None of Us!’
Pelosi DACA protest (Screen shot / Andrés Brender / Periscope)
by JOEL B. POLLAK18 Sep 2017
A group of illegal aliens calling themselves the “Immigration Liberation Movement” crashed a press conference by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday, warning the Democratic Party not to “sell [us] out.”The group shouted down Rep. Pelosi, who struggled to maintain control of the meeting, and unfurled a large banner calling for all illegal aliens to be legalized.
Others held up signs, including: “Fight 4 All 11 Million,” referring to the estimated total of all illegal aliens in the U.S.
In the “mic check” call-and-response style popularized by the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011, the activists declared:
We remember all too well how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting nearly three million people, of our family members and loved ones. Where was your resistance then? Ms. Pelosi, did you think we would forget? We send a clear message to our fellow undocumented youth and community: We are the resistance to Trump! Not the Democrats!
The activists also chanted “Brown power!” In a show of “intersectionality” — solidarity among left-wing groups — they also chanted “Trans lives matter!” and other slogans, while Pelosi stood silently behind the throng.
“You met with Trump, and you call that resistance?” they shouted in unison....(Read More...)
George Soros’ Secret War Manual To Nix Trump
Aug 20, 2017 Read More Articles by Rev. Austin Miles
Erasing history is the goal of George Soros. A country that does not know its history has lost part of its soul, which weakens it. Censoring speech, banning books along with current commentaries including some on Social Media, as well as hiding all reminders of the strength of the U.S. are all essential weapons to push America into Soros’ New World Order. Reminders of America’s strength are shown by statues, photos, and written records, which are all presently under attack.
Statues of historic leaders that have stood for over a hundred years are at this moment being pulled down and pulverized. Kelleigh Nelson, founder of the news-site: Exposing Modern Mugwumps, used this phrase, “Monumental Stupidity” when reflecting on the madness of bulldozing statues of leaders: “Excellent description.
Even simply being white is now under attack. Stanford University has just introduced a new course, Abolishing Whiteness, which is built upon the systematic privileges afforded to whites in Western Society. How’s that again? Yes this is STANFORD University where students pay a small fortune to gain their wisdom. And this is an example!
Below is a quote I just found while browsing some books. It is incredible how accurately it explains life and our future. Read this carefully:
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists, except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
And whose quote is this? George Orwell in his book, “1984,”
This book was published on June 8, 1949, 60 years ago. Orwell was dying in a tuberculosis sanitarium when he wrote it. At that time, three men were figuring out how to divide the world, Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt.
The original ideology behind this impulse may be communist or fascist, or nationalist or corporate or institutional, but the methods by which it proceeds are in each case the same: the stamping out of the capacity for individual thought and freedom, not merely by physical force but by a complete denial of privacy and by the control of all information, even to the extent of policing the language in which thoughts are expressed. Yes, this is Stalinistic.
The world Communist leader, George Soros has funded a 49 page secret war manual for destroying the Trump Administration and regaining Democrat-COMMUNIST control of Congress. This in itself lays the groundwork for Treason and Sedition charges to be filed against Soros. DO IT!
Bishop E.W. Jackson in an article wrote: “President Trump is being attacked by a hostile liberal media, undermined by a Deep State full of Obama/Clinton holdovers and betrayed by some GOP “Never-Trumpers” who will never accept him as president.
Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel wrote in his newsletter: “The battle lines are drawn, and the future of the country is at stake. David Brock of Media Matters, a George Soros-funded leftist “think tank,” has issued a 49-page secret war manual for destroying the Trump Administration and regaining Democratic control of Congress.”
It calls for impeachment of the President, a de facto coup d’état. Ultimately, this is not merely an attack on Donald J. Trump. It is an assault on the presidency, the Constitution and the people who voted for change. Fair-minded people, whether they be Democrats or Republicans, are shocked by the complicity of the mainstream media in trying to overthrow the President.
It’s time for Americans to be heard again in congressional offices, town hall meetings, rallies and on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. The message is simple. To the President: We stand with you. Demand that George Soros be charged and prosecuted for Treason and Sedition. All the elements are there for that case.
Notice how George Soros deceptively names his non-profit 501(c)3 hit teams to suggest they are patriotic: For example one particularly active one is Democracy Alliance which was formed specifically to undermine the Trump agenda as well as America itself.
A full-on trench warfare against Trump from Day One.
Immediately after the election of Donald Trump, Soros and his wealthy cronies in the Democracy Alliance (DA) vowed to relentlessly fight the President and his agenda.
According to Politico, Soros and other liberal leaders — including Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren, and Keith Ellison–a Muslim, met to “plan trench warfare against Trump from Day One.” They want to make all the decisions regarding our lives.
Plus … as reported on the Democracy Alliance website, President Gara LaMarche mercilessly derided the President’s agenda at a recent summit:
“We now have a President, with the most extreme anti-government Cabinet in generations, determined to advance this agenda at the federal level and undermine democratic norms from freedom of the press to the independence of the judiciary.
These assaults on democratic processes and systems hurt working families, endanger our environment and public health, erode faith and trust in government, delegitimize democratic institutions, and undermine the capacity of government at all levels to deliver basic services. We have much to resist.”
That far-left rhetoric is echoed by the mainstream media. As a result, President Trump faces and confronts these distortions daily as he attempts to fulfill his “Make America Great Again” promises.
We must join the President and stand against leftist ideologies, like those espoused by George Soros’ leftist groups!
The new Civil War has started. With the riots, destruction and chaos on the streets, is Martial Law far behind? How about Citizen Militias? One thing for sure, it is way past time to arrest and charge George Soros with Treason and Sedition.
Meanwhile, be of good cheer. Hillary Clinton announced that she is going to be a Methodist Pastor. This may cause pulpit palpitations since ‘ye shall NOT know the truth and the lie will not set ye free but it will be a high profile church and should attract quite a crowd.

Mueller’s Role in Delivering Uranium to Russians Raises Questions
Written by Steve Byas
The latest release late last week by Julian Assange at WikiLeaks of a 2009 State Department cable to the Russians raises fresh questions about the objectivity of Special Counsel Robert Mueller (shown), the man named to investigate any possible “collusions” between the presidential campaign of Donald Trump and the Russians.
In 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton directed FBI Director Mueller to deliver a sample of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) to Russia. The uranium had reportedly been stolen. It seems particularly odd, considering that the FBI is not under the supervision of the State Department, and that the FBI director would personally make the transfer.
Assange released the controversial cable on May 17, the same day that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein tapped Mueller as an “independent” counsel to investigate any supposed Trump-Russian ties.
Trump has expressed legitimate concerns about the personnel that Mueller has hired to conduct his work. They are practically all partisan Democrats, with seven staffers having contributed large sums of money to either Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, or the Democratic National Committee. None donated any money to Trump, or to any other Republican presidential candidate in the last campaign.
Adding to that concern is the question as to what exactly was Mueller’s role in the deal between Russia and Uranium One, the company that Hillary’s husband, Bill Clinton, supported at the same time she was secretary of state. Hillary Clinton, in her role as secretary of state, voted to allow the Russian State Atomic Nuclear Energy Agency control of about 20 percent of all uranium holdings in the United States.
As revealed by WikiLeaks, Secretary of State Clinton sent a cable to John Beryle, who was U.S. Ambassador to Russia; the U.S. Ambassador to the Georgia Embassy; and U.S. ambassador to the Russian Embassy, on August 17, 2009. The cable read in part, “Action Request: Embassy Moscow is requested to alert at the highest appropriate level the Russian Federation that FBI Director Mueller plans to deliver the HEU sample once he arrives in Moscow on September 21.”
Shepard Ambellas, editor-in-chief of Intellihub.com, said in June 2017 that the classified cable indicated that the delivery of the 10-gram sample of HEU to Russian law enforcement sources occurred during a secret “plane-side” meeting on the tarmac. (This brings up memories of Bill Clinton’s tarmac meeting in Arizona with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, where they said they just discussed their grandchildren.)
Not surprisingly, supporters of the Clintons, such as the Huffington Post, interpreted the cable in the most favorable light for Hillary and Bill Clinton. “The text and tweet released by WikiLeaks more than suggests Mueller is guilty of a serious crime, passing on nuclear material to the USA’s superpower rival. But,” the Post added, “the section it omitted from the tweet changes the entire context of Mueller’s actions.”
The portion the Post contended was not mentioned, but relevant, read, “Over two years ago Russia requested a ten-gram sample of highly enriched uranium (HEU) seized in early 2006 in Georgia [the Russian territory, not the American state] during a nuclear smuggling sting operation … In response to the Russian request, the Georgian Government authorized the United States to share a sample of the material with the Russians for forensic analysis.”
The Post then laments, “WikiLeaks used to be a force for good in the world, playing a major role in revealing the inner workings of Guantanamo Bay and exposing events like the killing of journalists by U.S. forces in Iraq.” In other words, as long as WikiLeaks was producing negative material on a Republican president, it was a “force for good in the world.” Now that it is raising questions about the man investigating a different Republican president, not so much.
Actually, the fact that WikiLeaks appears to be nonpartisan in its activities should give it more credibility --- more so than the Huffington Post, well-known for its pro-Clinton bias.
In his highly-praised book Clinton Cash, Peter Schweizer discusses the famous “Russian Reset” initiated by Hillary Clinton when she took over the State Department. Relations between the U.S. and the Russians had degenerated during the last couple of years of the Bush administration, and Hillary publicly said she intended to reverse the worsened relations, complete with a “reset button.”
For their part, the Russians appeared pleased with her selection as secretary of state. Schweizer noted, “An important side note to the Russian reset was how it involved a collection of foreign investors who had poured vast sums of money into the Clinton Foundation and who continued to sponsor lucrative speeches for Bill. These investors stood to gain enormously from the decisions Hillary made as secretary of state.”
Schweizer explained why the Hillary “reset” was so important in the uranium deals. The Bush administration had pulled out of a uranium deal with the Russians after Russian forces went into Georgia in 2008, but the Obama administration (with Hillary taking the lead) reopened the negotiations. A deal was reached in 2010, and as Schweizer wrote, “Several multimillion-dollar Clinton Foundation donors were at the center of the deal.” In fact, “The Clinton Foundation also failed to disclose major contributions from entities controlled by those involved in the Uranium One deal. Thus, beginning in 2009, the company’s chairman, [Ian] Telfer, quietly started funneling what would become $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation through a Canadian entity he controlled.”
While the revelation of a secret meeting involving Robert Mueller in the delivery of uranium to the Russians, by itself, does not prove anything of a criminal or unethical nature, it does raise questions that merit an investigation. After all, when Mueller was FBI director under the Obama administration, he was trusted enough by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to carry out this mission. If it was a diplomatic mission, why was the FBI director involved? And if it was a law enforcement mission, why was Clinton involved?
And is Mueller sufficiently objective to conduct an impartial investigation of a Republican president?
These are questions that the mainstream media should pursue, but will not.
Dem Senator Marches Into His Final Fate As Overnight Vote Calls For Subpoenas
Posted by Georgette Walrath | Aug 4, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is facing federal charges for corruption and bribery. The Senate approved a resolution that will allow subpoenaed senators and staff members to testify in the upcoming trial.
In the never ending fantasy of Trump collusion with Russia, it’s easy for alt-left reporters to ignore the real news about government corruption. Although this usually means that the alphabet news companies are covering up for Clinton, Obama, and other Soros neophytes, in this case, they’re disregarding the implications that New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez’s upcoming trial will have on the balance of congressional power.
The U.S. Senate has bilaterally passed a resolution that authorizes Senators and staff members to participate in Menendez’s September criminal proceeding. Essentially, anyone who works in that capacity can be subpoenaed by either the prosecution or the defense to testify in the case. The late night resolution also ensures that Senate legal representation is provided for witnesses.
The official go-ahead to testify is a fairly standard practice. Unfortunately, democrat corruption, bribery, and theft is also a standard practice. The Menendez trial has a unique distinction because he has actually being caught and is facing prosecution. He’s been fighting the inevitable for more than two years.
Achieving the lofty Senate position in 2006, Menendez was serving as the Chair of the Committee on Foreign Relations when a federal indictment in 2015 caused him to step down.
In his latest attempt to avoid prosecution and punishment for his crimes, Menendez’s plea to the Supreme Court was rejected before it was even heard.
Majority Leader McConnell introduced the resolution last night, backed by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, but the measure doesn’t list the persons who’ve been ordered to testify.
McConnell inserted a statement in the congressional record that explained, “This resolution would authorize Senate individuals called to appear to testify and produce documents in this case and related proceedings, except concerning matters for which a privilege is asserted.”
“It would also authorize the Senate Legal Counsel to represent individuals called to testify at trial as fact witnesses regarding their performance of official Senate responsibilities,” he said.
Menendez, who has adamantly denied the charges, is facing 14 counts of bribery and corruption. In March, the Supreme Court dismissed his dubious pretrial challenge without bothering to hear it.
Menendez is accused of accepting almost $1 million from Dr. Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor and major democrat donor. He allegedly gave funds to Menendez in exchange for visas and help with a Medicare investigation.
Menendez took money from a major democrat donor but did not disclose the information.
Melgen needed all the help he could get from the New jersey senator. The doctor was convicted in April on more than 60 counts of fraud against the government agency. Melgen faces up to 20 years in prison for bilking taxpayers of over $20 million, which for the 62-year-old doctor could be a life sentence.
Melgen allegedly transferred funds and paid for expensive trips for the New Jersey lawmaker. Prosecutors say that the trips were used to help get visas for Melgen’s Russian mistresses. The Florida-based ophthalmologist also sent campaign “donations” to Menendez for his intervention with Medicare officials who were investigating his practice.
Melgen is named as a co-defendant with Menendez in the federal bribery charges, but before he’s sentenced next week, he could have a major impact on Menendez. If federal prosecutors offer him a deal to become a witness, he may be inclined to take it, which would nail the lid on the coffin of Menendez’s political career and freedom.
The Florida eye doctor paid for Menendez to help avert investigations into his Medicare fraud. He was convicted of the charges and many conservatives think that he’ll testify against Menendez in exchange for a reduced sentence.
Moreover, if Menendez is removed from office, Governor Chris Christie would be in the rare position of appointing a replacement senator. If that happened, there’s a chance that republicans could strengthen their 52-48 lead in the senate, at least temporarily.
The proceedings are set to begin on September 6, despite Menendez’s numerous appeals and attempts to prevent it. The Senator is sticking by his flat denials. When his longtime friend was convicted, he continued to look out only for himself, “That case has nothing to do with my case,” Menendez told reporters after the Melgen verdict. “It was about the procedures and practices of his office,” he added.
So, along with allegedly engaging in corrupt bribery while a representative of the United States, Menendez is also a selfish, fair-weather friend.
Despite the upcoming trial and the possibility of Senators and staff members testifying against him, Menendez continues to raise reelection funds. He currently has more than $2.7 million according to the FEC. However, a recent New jersey poll showed that only 31 percent of voters think that he should keep his Senate seat.
Hopefully, the trial will remove at least one unethical, immoral politician from Washington. Now that the Senate has given the green light for testimony, it will be interesting to see what the September hearing will disclose.

Day 278.2. Hillary's Leakers Hackers and Henchmen
Debbie Schultz’ Brother Leading Investigation Into Hack, Seth Rich
If the former DNC head's brother (pictured left) is not called to recuse himself from this case, there is no justice in America. POSTED BY: SAM DI GANGI 27 JULY 2017
Teddy Stick had only hours ago pieced together all of the facts surrounding Seth Rich, Jullian Assange, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), former DNC head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and the fact that her IT guy (Awan) had access to passwords and questionable ties to the Middle East.
Already, things have gotten worse.
To begin with, Roger Stone has posted on Twitter that “Clinton co-conspirator Debra Wasserman Schulz brother is the Federal prosecutor in the Seth Rich case.” Imagine the outrage if President Donald Trump appointed his son as the prosecutor into the Russian probe to put this into perspective for all snowflakes.
Even those who supported Trump and have since day one would be livid! Is there no oversight for Democrats and will those who support their party tolerate any injustice so long as it hurts the president?
Likewise, Truth Leaks Media on their Twitter page wrote, “Hard to believe Steve Wasserman is trying the Imran Awan case. No kidding.” They also in bold letters show that “The Assistant U.S. Attorney Overseeing The Awan Family Investigation Is The Brother Of [sic]Wasserman Schultz!”
In the news today is Trump’s statement about his intentions on stopping the acceptance of transgendered people into the Armed Forces. Regardless of where one stands on that sensitive issue, should it be leading the headlines today?
A man named Seth Rich was MURDERED! It was likely done by the DNC or by those connected to it. There are surely people who at least knew/know about it, and America wants answers.
What kinds of answers are going to be coming to us in any fair manner if the person under investigation has her brother as the prosecutor?
Lastly, where is the always “cheated and victimized” left? After all, they crowed the loudest when then Governor Jeb Bush was the leader of Florida at the time when that state was contested on the run against global alarmist Al Gore. His brother was George W. Bush and liberals were blind with fury.
Will Schultz be allowed to have her brother as a persecutor in a case involving her? So far, it appears to be so.
Now it is perfectly “OK” because Schultz has a “D” by her name?
These people cheated Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), too, so it is not as if Democrats have not suffered under her every bit as much as Trump and the Republicans have.
If we can’t agree on that, then America is far more divided than anyone feared.
Don’t Allow Maxine Waters’ Impeachment Crap to Stick
by Lloyd Marcus • July 20, 2017
For our 40th wedding anniversary, Mary and I have been experiencing the grandeur and majestic beauty of God’s creation in Alaska. Did you know bald eagles are brown for 5 or 6 years before their head turns white? I was surprised by Alaska’s bountiful foliage and multicolored flowers. From towering glaciers to skies, mountains and seas painted in gorgeous blues by God, we saw numerous breathtaking beautiful scenes. In 1867, Secretary of State William H. Seward purchased our 49th state for only $7.2 million. It was a Trump-of-a-great-deal. Critics called the deal “Seward’s folly.”
In our cabin, I was jolted back to ugly reality by MSNBC, one of the three available TV news channels. Folks, I continue to be amazed by the level of hate that MSNBC has for Trump and their commitment to removing him from office.
Further blowing my beauty of Alaska high was a press conference in which despicable human being Maxine Waters announced democrats’ plan to impeach Trump for criminal activities. There is not a shred of evidence supporting Waters’ accusations. Watching Maxine Waters stand at the podium lying through her teeth about all of Trump’s supposed crimes was disgusting. Waters and her democrat minions are horrible enemies of the American people and must never be voted back into power again.
Trump has been totally awesome; fulfilling campaign promises and moving the ball forward towards making America great again. In only six months, Trump has dramatically chipped away much of Obama’s mountain of regulatory overreaches http://nws.mx/2vbT3Rr ; created jobs http://bit.ly/2k5thrN; opted us out of an anti-American climate deal http://cnb.cx/2qHbSZh and restored power back to states and We the People. http://bit.ly/2ux7UIh
Democrats/Leftists are out of their minds with rage, desperate to stop Trump’s swift and steady dismantling of Obama’s legacy of government tyranny.
This is why the democrats and fake news media tag team continue the relentless promotion of their absurd lie that Trump used Russia to steal the election. 1. It is impossible for Russia to tamper with our vote counting. 2. Fake news media either under-reported Hillary’s multiple crimes and breaches of national security or told us they were no big deal. Fake news media thought it had successfully protected Hillary and duped voters, confident she would win in a landslide.
Hillary lost because she was a cold calculating tired old hippie wicked witch Leftist who said it was okay to abort a baby moments before birth. Thank God, this vile woman is not seated in that powerful chair in our Oval Office.
Maxine Waters’ and her minions demanding that Trump be impeached is equivalent to throwing crap against the wall, hoping it will stick. For the Leftists’ impeachment scheme to work, they must destroy Trump’s popularity. Fake news media’s strategy is to flood the airways with empty accusations of criminal activity. They throw character assassination grenades at Trump 24/7. Fake news media bombards us with reports of supposed nationwide protests. Fake news media manipulate polls to create the illusion that Trump’s appeal is sinking. http://bit.ly/2vvYIky Fake news media is doing everything in its power to sell their lie that Americans regret voting for Trump.
A standard practice of democrats and fake news media is to brand anyone who dares oppose their extreme socialist/progressive agenda a racist, stupid, corrupt or crazy. Leftists claim Trump is obviously crazy and must be impeached. So, because Trump is functioning like a savvy businessman rather that an impotent Republican, Leftists say he must be crazy. Sadly, we cannot count on wimpy Republicans to have our president’s back.
My fellow patriotic Americans, We the People are Trump’s firewall; the only thing blocking Waters’ and her minion’s impeachment crap from sticking. The good news is Waters and her homeys are clueless regarding our rock-solid connection with Trump and why he won our votes in an electoral landslide.
Leftists laughed, mocked and underestimated Ronald Reagan. Fortunately, they are repeating their mistake with Trump as he continues to kick their butts under their upturned noses.
During Trump’s run for the WH, I recorded a parody of the O’Jays’ “Love Train” titled, “Trump Train”. http://bit.ly/2nILInB Folks, it is extremely crucial that we who elected our president stay firmly seated aboard the Trump Train.

The Rising Movement Against Soros
Posted Jun 16, 2017
by Martin Armstrong
In Hungary, NGOs (non-governmental organizations) will have to be registered in court and their foreign donors will be disclosed. The Hungarian Parliament adopted what many are calling the most controversial laws of recent years. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, advocated the so-called NGO Law that obligates non-governmental organizations with more than 24,000 euros per year from outside the country to declare their most important foreign donors annually and to declare themselves as “an organization benefiting from foreign financing”. If they do not comply with this obligation, they will be closed in Hungary. The so called blueprint for the law comes from Russia, where foreign-funded institutions are branded as “enemy agents”. NGOs in Hungary have to register themselves from now on, and on their website they will be able to use the term “foreign-funded organization”.
There are a lot of people up in arms over this. But there is a serious problem of organization such as that of George Soros trying to fund revolutions and government subversion movements. There have been foreign fundings of civil unrest in the United States against Trump. Obama funded activists in Canada to overthrow the conservatives. Clinton help Tony Blair and the Labour Party beat John Major, and we certainly cannot forget all the screaming about Russian interference in the 2016 election that defeated Hillary.
The EU Commission and the United Nations have both strongly criticized the bill. They actually say it is designed against Orban’s intimate enemies, namely the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros. The foundations of Soros claim to support numerous human rights organizations and environmental protection groups in Hungary, but it also funds anti-government movements. Orban had just said recently that Soros “and his agencies” were an opaque component in the public life of Hungary. It was Soros supporting more refugees moving into Hungary.
The EU had complained that the “NGO Transparency Act” was far beyond the goal of securing financial transparency. This would also limit the legitimate political activities of groups that are exposed to a constant, hostile campaign by the Orban government. The government made some concessions to Brussels whereas donations under €1700 would no longer need to be reported separately. The rule is that all “groups financed abroad” will not be eligible for state funding in Hungary.
We are seeing these laws in other places as well. Trump has banned American politicians from lobbying for foreign government for up to five years after leaving office. Human rights groups and activists in Egypt are accusing the government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi for effecting a law that regulates the work of non-governmental organizations. Clearly, there is a huge difference between helping people and creating political unrest. The Egyptian measure restricts NGO activity to developmental and social work and introduces jail terms of up to five years for non-compliance. The law also gives the government power over deciding who can establish an NGO and for what purpose. Similar laws were installed in Russia as well.
After all the yelling by the Democrats in the USA that Putin interfered in the US election, NGOs are clearly something that is a grey area, which has been exploited for political purposes using the cover of humanity.
Former DNC Chair Brazile Warned Private Investigator In Seth Rich Case
POSTED BY: MATTHEW BERNSTEIN 24 MAY 2017
Last summer, a Democratic National Committee worker by the name of Seth Rich was murdered. It was heartbreaking to see someone so young brutally taken. At least that is what the media wants people to think.
There are several stories that claim that Rich was the person that leaked the DNC emails to WikiLeaks, ultimately showing collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC itself.
According to WND.com, former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile called police and Rich’s family wanting to know why an investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s untimely death.
Homicide detective Rod Wheeler said, “The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile. Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?
A spokesperson for the Rich family has come out and criticized Wheeler, because he wouldn’t rule out that Rich was the WikiLeaks source. Brazile for her part sent out a tweet slamming any possibility that Rich was the leaker.
“Seth Rich was a hard worker and proud to be an American. This desire to scar Seth’s legacy to his country and party is shameful.”
If that is what she said, then why is Brazile demanding to know why investigators are “snooping” into Rich’s case? What do you have to hide?
This story isn’t going to go away anytime soon, considering that Fox News’s Sean Hannity reported on the story as well.
Making this even more troublesome is what Wheeler told Hannity. “There were some problems that Seth was having on his job at the DNC right before he was killed. And the person that called the father after I called the police to get information (Brazile), that’s the person that Seth was having problems with at the DNC. So connect the dots, here; it’s starting to all come together.”
Rich saw the corruption of the Democrats and wanted to have it released, despite liberal outlets denying it. His murder WILL be avenged.
Maxine Waters Gives Up The False Facade Following Trial, Turns Complete 180 In Confession
POSTED BY: SAM DI GANGI
22 MAY 2017
Ignore that crashing sound.
It is just the hopes of President Donald Trump’s impeachment falling apart as Democrats and “Never Trumpers” bang their heads onto their desks and weep. While all of America have known for months that the Trump/Russia connection was a lie crafted by sore losers, now even Trump’s most vocal critic, Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been forced to admit it!
The Daily Caller is reporting today that “she has yet to see evidence of collusion between Trumpworld and the Russian government.” While a guest on MSNBC’s, Morning Joe, she rambled on with her fake news about how Russia worked with Trump “in developing a strategy about how they could ensure that Hillary Clinton was not elected” before confessing on herself.
Prior to doing so, she talked also about what she “believed,” not what was factual. When read carefully, this is clear:”I am talking about strategies that were developed, working with the Trump campaign. I really do believe that much of what you saw coming out of Trump’s mouth was a play from Putin’s playbook.” (bold added by author)
Even the lefties at the Huffington Post were forced to push her, however. Huffington Post editor Sam Stein asked the always angry Waters, ”
HP editor Sam Stein asked the always angry Waters, “But just to be clear, there has been no actual evidence yet?”
“No, it has not been,” Waters confessed, proving that her own agenda has blurred the facts at hand.
She continued to show how rather than unity, she seeks division when her side loses. She said, “No it has not. And I want you to know every time I’ve talked about impeachment I’ve said we’ve got to connect the dots, we’ve got to get the facts, we’ve got to do the investigation. That is what leads to impeachment, and I’ve also said that Trump will lead us right there.”
Russia played no role in America rejecting Hillary Clinton.
Trump himself was not scared to address what the spiteful Waters confessed by stating,”There was no collusion, and everybody — even my enemies have said, there is no collusion.”
That sums it up for many things concerning Trump and the Democrats, does it not, in these Divided States of America? The lefts vindictiveness will undermine the whole country if voters do not cast to the curb those causing it in 2018.

Democrats in Civil War Against Obama’s OFA?
Posted Feb 21, 2017 by Martin Armstrong
Of course the brainwashed Democrats send in emails saying Obama is not behind the shenanigans of civil unrest. They just prefer to blame everyone but themselves and live in their little bubble world. They are totally unaware that the Democrats are themselves experiencing an internal civil war and it is the state level Democrats that are starting to revolt against the Washington elite and that includes Obama’s covert machine behind creating civil unrest called Organizing for Action (OFA). I have reported that normally a President’s fund is shut down after they leave office. Here, Obama has taken a house in Washington, built a wall around it at taxpayer’s expense, and turned it into his bunker to obstruct anything that Trump tries to do. Obama’s OFA troops are especially trying to protect Obamacare, which he regards as his “legacy” even though it is falling apart.
There is brewing an internal civil war within the Democratic Party who are getting very angry at Obama and his OFA some have called “The Devil.” Stephen Handwerk, executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party, wrote in a private email to fellow party leaders, “This is some GRADE A Bulls–t right here.” Indeed, Handwerk has come out and said that declaring yourself a Democrat in Louisiana is more difficult than coming out as gay. In a leaked email the Daily Beast has published, Handwerk added: “It also to me seems TONE DEAF—we have lost over 1,000 seats in the past 8 years … all because of this crap.”
The email was obtained and published by the Daily Beast, reported the thread of other Democrats at the state level. “Yes, it sure is,” Katie Mae Simpson, executive director for the Maine Democratic Party, replied. “OFA showed up in Maine, organized a press conference on saving [Obamacare], with one of our Dem legislative leaders speaking, all without ever mentioning that they were in state and organizing. They hired someone I know, which is somewhat helpful, but my god, they don’t have a very good alliance-building process.”
They continued: “[With] all due respect to President Obama, OFA was created as a shadow party because Obama operatives had no faith in state parties,” Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb told Politico last week.”
I have reported that OFA has over 250 offices set up around the country circumventing the Democratic Party with over 30,000 operatives. This is the same OFA that accepted money from Soros who is trying to create a socialist revolution worldwide. I would remove any funds from any hedge fund that donated to Hillary since they are supporting socialism and the deprivation of our liberty even if they do not know the agenda. The New York Post wrote: Obama’s “army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.”
This chart demonstrates that the Democrats (blue line) are in a long-term bear market. Obama has circumvented the Democrats with OFA and has established a clandestine unaccountable political party taking money from questionable people. There are many Democrats at the state level who are starting to see OFA as an organization independent of the Democratic Party itself, which in trying to undermine Trump, yet may in fact, undermine the Democratic Party itself. When we look at the data, the Democratic Party, which was the Party of Slavery to start with led by Andrew Jackson, crashed and bottomed during the Civil War as Abraham Lincoln became the first Republican President.
From that low during the 1860s, the Democratic Party transformed itself initially as a labor type of Party championing the silver miners. They adopted Marxism during the 1890s and reached a peak with Roosevelt during the Great Depression.
Look closely at this chart which takes the total seats of each party combined for the Senate & House as a percent of the total combined available seats. Take note that the Democrats have been in a bear market with lower and lower highs since that major high with FDR during the Great Depression. It was during the 1937 period that the Democrats held 76.8362% of the total seats in the Senate and House of Representatives. It appears that the Democratic Party may fall apart and splinter in 2023. Now Democrats will be writing in on this one. Keep in mind that the Republican elites like John McCain are opposed to Trump. Trump may have ran within the Republican Party, but he has been really a third party candidate with the Republican elite vehemently against him like John McCain. So government is going to change completely.
Obama is behind the effort to derail and block the Trump Administration on everything. However, Obama may be sowing the seeds of the destruction of the Democratic Party altogether. Those who think Obama is not behind this coup are blinded by their bias. To agree with this statement DOES NOT mean the Republicans are saints – just look at John McCain if you need reassurance. John McCain voted to tax the internet.
Obama is deliberately trying to create an uprising and is side-stepping the Democratic Party himself because they will not agree with his agenda. Hedge Funds and Hollywood are assisting him so there is money and propaganda on his side. ABC is among the worst in the mainstream media, which is a total disgrace for Disney. The show the View openly states that not one person voted for Trump and all they do is bash Republicans. You are hard pressed to find a more bias show spouting out propaganda from the agenda on ABC. How has this happened?
This is all being organized and directed through OFA – not the Democratic Party. The civil war brewing within the Democrats is pitting the State level against the Feds and particularly OFA. How this plays out will be extremely interesting. Nevertheless, this is part of the cycle where we see the collapse of the established government structures, and that will include Republicans. We cannot wait for people like John McCain to leave Washington. He is deeply entrenched in the swamp.
Three High Profile Attorneys Found Dead In Wasserman Schultz Florida District In 2 Weeks - June 15, 2017
Three high profile attorneys have been found dead in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Florida district in the last two weeks, prompting the plaintiff in the massive DNC fraud lawsuit being held in Florida to request protection from the court for the plaintiffs, their witnesses and their families.
While the DNC fraud lawsuit has been hit with a mainstream media blackout, the case continues to unravel the corruption at the heart of the Democratic National Committee, and with the discovery phase still to come, the skeletons in the DNC’s closet have never been closer to receiving a disinfecting dose of sunlight.
Jared Beck, attorney for the plaintiffs in the DNC fraud lawsuit taking place in Miami, uploaded a video Tuesday in which he thanked supporters for offering their “concerns, prayers and support” in the wake of recent disturbing murders.
“After much consideration and deliberation we have decided it is time to bring these concerns to the court’s attention. Today we filed a motion to judge William Zloch, to issue an order providing for the protection of the plaintiffs and their families, as well as all potential witnesses in the DNC fraud lawsuit.”
“In support of this motion we have cited the following events: the untimely death of our process server,Shawn Lucas; the unsolved murder of DNC employee, Seth Rich. We believe Mr Rich might have been a potential witness in this case. We have also cited the recent untimely death of federal prosecutor Beranton Whisenant in South Florida. Also recent bizarre and disturbing conduct, including threats, that has been directed at plaintiffs, their counsel, and employees. And we have also cited an offer to provide security by the Oathkeepers, and its president Stuart Rose.“
The motion published on the Beck’s website JamPAC included the declaration of a plaintiff in the suit, describing allegations that her laptop had been tampered with, allegedly by an individual who had illegally entered her home.
The huge class-action fraud lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee keeps getting weirder and it now involves the Capitol Police.
Today’s announcement comes after the Becks had reported receiving a creepy anonymous phone call from somebody using a voice changer. After a Google search the Becks found the caller ID number matched that of former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ Aventura office.
According to attorney Elizabeth Lee Beck: “At 4:54 p.m. today [June 1], an individual called our law office from ‘305-936-5724.’” That number is the contact phone number for Wasserman Schultz’s Aventura office in Florida.
“My secretary stated that it sounded like the caller was using a voice changer, because the voice sounded robotic and genderless — along the lines of the voice changers used when television show interviews are kept anonymous,” Beck continued. “The caller concluded with ‘Okey dokey,’ after my secretary gave the caller public information about the case. After the call ended, a simple Google search of the phone number ‘305-936-5724′ shows that it is the phone number for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ Aventura office … What just occurred is highly irregular and we will be filing the instant e-mail with the court forthwith.“
Senator ‘Pocahontas’ Warren Called Out By Cherokee Indians Who Demand An Explanation
POSTED BY: MATTHEW BERNSTEIN
22 MAY 2017
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been the subject of a heated controversy about her heritage. She claims to be Native American, but hasn’t shown any proof on the matter, despite repeated calls for it.
It has led President Donald Trump to nickname her “Pocahontas,” and he has also asked for proof on the matter.
He wasn’t the only one. Recently, V.A. Shiva, who is an Indian-born entrepreneur, as well as a scientist, challenged the Senator to a DNA test.
It’s downright impossible to fake a DNA test, unless the results are botched, which means it would be a great way to tell if the Senator has been lying this whole time.
Shiva posted on Twitter a short video, only about 20 seconds, challenging the Massachusetts Senator to a challenge that he invented just this. He calls it the “Real Indian vs. Fake Indian challenge.”
The video has him holding a “23andMe” DNA testing kit. The process is simple; they need to collect someone’s saliva, and after a few short days, they are emailed the results. That’s all it takes to discover someone’s true heritage.
The subject of Senator Warren’s Indian claim has been ongoing for years, ever since her 2012 Senate race. Shiva also put up another Twitter video, but this was filled with other real Indians slamming the Senator for her claims.
One of the first speakers, Dale French, brings up several points.
“Elizabeth Warren, being someone that has a professorship should have some type of ethics. How can you trust a person like that? If they’re willing to lie about themselves and where they’re from and who they are, you know? My name is Dale French, I was born and raised here on the Cherokee Indian reservation, and I just don’t approve of that…”
It will be interesting to see if Senator Warren takes the challenge. The ball is in her court now. So what is she going to do?

VIDEO: Maxine Waters Gets BRUTAL Dose Of Justice At Her $4.5 MILLION House
If it weren’t for double standards, the Left would have no standards at all. People are finally starting to wake up and realize that they are being played like a fiddle.
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is facing justice in the most BRUTAL fashion at ONE of her mansions. According to KABC, protesters are lining up at her home, and they all seem to be Latinos and members of the black community — there is even a mariachi band! They are all there for one reason; they want Waters to leave her position.
Waters has spent a lot of time preaching that WE need to impeach President Trump. She has made claims all across the liberal talking points board. If we were playing Liberal Talking Points Bingo, we would have won vertically, diagonally, and horizontally twice.
When she isn’t foaming at the mouth at the idea of getting Trump out of office, she spends her time talking about how people need to help the poor. Meanwhile, Waters has made no significant contributions to the poor, racial minorities, she swears need her help. It is strange — almost as if it is one big show.
Featured in the crowd of protesters is Omar Navarro. He ran up against Waters in 2016 and is planning for a 2018 victory. He is one of many that are flat-out sick of her hypocrisy.
“Hashtag Impeach Maxine.’ See, Maxine is talking about impeaching President Donald Trump and yet, she doesn’t ask herself, what about her? What about her not doing her job for 35 years?” asked Navarro.
Navarro has a valid point. When is Waters going to start doing her job? It has been 35 years. You would think that at this point SOME progress would have been made if she was trying, but she isn’t. She is like every other money-grubbing liberal out there.
Her only goal is furthering her agenda and making more money. It is a sad state of affairs we are currently in. We are divided because the Left lost the primary focus of being in the government, making life better and fairer for the AMERICAN PEOPLE!
Waters is not new to scandals. She is currently soaking in hot water due to her claims about the Trump-Russia connection, when SHE has $2.8 million tied up in RUSSIA RIGHT NOW! On top of that, she also has a retirement fund in a Russian bank account. It is odd that she would make this claim when her closet is so full of skeletons that the door is bowing.
We hope that Waters gets the point. NO ONE wants her representing the people in California, or any other state, for that matter. She is a career government official and has proven time and time again that she doesn’t care about the people she is supposed to represent.
Maxine Waters has humiliated us ever since she entered Congress. Do you think she should be removed? Let America know!
"Democrats Without Double Standards Have NO Standards At All"
Democratic Rep. Esty says she won't seek re-election after abuse claims against ex-staffer
By Samuel Chamberlain | Fox News
Elizabeth Esty will not seek reelection amid harassment caseRep. Elizabeth Esty, D-Conn., announced Monday that she would not seek re-election this November amid accusations that she failed to protect her female staffers from a former chief of staff accused of harassment and abuse.
In statement posted on Facebook, Esty said: "I have determined that it is in the best interest of my constituents and my family to end my time in Congress at the end of this year and not seek re-election."
Esty had come under pressure to resign after reports by the Connecticut Post and The Washington Post revealed that Esty allowed her then-chief of staff, Tony Baker, to remain on the job in May 2016 despite knowledge of allegations that he physically harmed and threatened to "kill" another staffer.
"Too many women have been harmed by harassment in the workplace," Esty wrote. "In the terrible situation in my office, I could have and should have done better. To the survivor, I want to express my strongest apology for letting you down."
National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Matt Gorman said Esty's announcement marked "a sad day for Connecticut's 5th district.
"Elizabeth Esty's coverup over her staffer's domestic violence scandal was as reprehensible as it was morally bankrupt," Gorman said. "The NRCC is ready to win this competitive seat this fall. Democrats won't be able to distance themselves from the stain Esty left on their brand."
Esty has represented the district since 2013. A Republican was last elected to the seat in 2004. The district includes Newtown, where the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre occurred. Esty has been a vocal advocate for stronger gun laws but has been mostly unable to pass any new federal legislation since the December 2012 shooting. She recently attended President Donald Trump's White House meeting on guns and other issues following the Parkland, Fla., school shooting.
Connecticut Democrats praised Esty's decision not to seek re-election.
"The truth is, too many facts about how this incident was handled fall short of appropriate standards for responsible and responsive leadership," said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who had not publicly called for Esty to resign.
"Congresswoman Esty made a difficult decision, but the right one for her and the constituents of her District," Rep. Rosa DeLauro said in a statement.
Earlier Monday, Esty asked the House Ethics Committee to determine whether she did anything wrong in handling Baker's firing.
In her letter to committee members, Esty said she learned through a third party in 2016 about possible misconduct by Baker involving a former staffer, who worked in her office from January 2013 to March 2015. Esty has said she fired Baker three months later after receiving an internal investigation report that revealed improper behavior by Baker that affected multiple female staffers.
However, news reports last week revealed that Baker received a $5,000 taxpayer-funded severance payment from Esty, as well as a recommendation that landed him a job at the pro-gun control group Sandy Hook Promise. Staffers said Esty repaid the federal government last week with her personal funds.
Before news of the controversy broke, Esty had issued press releases calling for tougher harassment protections for congressional staffers and was among those demanding that then-U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., resign amid allegations of misconduct.
A spokesman for Baker, the former chief of staff, told the Connecticut Post and The Washington Post that he denies some of the allegations. A phone number listed for a Tony Baker in Columbus, Ohio, where the spokesman said the former chief of staff was living, was disconnected.
An aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told Fox News that Esty informed Pelosi of her decision to not seek re-election in a phone conversation Monday. Earlier, Pelosi commended Esty's former employee Anna Kain for coming forward and telling her story, but stopped short of calling on the congresswoman to resign.
"As Congresswoman Esty has acknowledged, her actions did not protect Ms. Kain and should have," Pelosi said in a written statement. "Congresswoman Esty has now appropriately requested an expedited review by the Ethics Committee."
Fox News' Mike Emanuel and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
Documents: FBI Carefully Planned Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Trip, Tried To Cover It Up
Mar 18, 2018
President Bill Clinton, Facebook
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) under director James Comey carefully plotted logistics and security for President Bill Clinton’s meeting on an airplane tarmac with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the 2016 campaign.
The FBI then attempted to cover up the tarmac meeting by targeting a Bureau whistleblower. The FBI worked with its offices around the country to execute the plan.
Breaking Judicial Watch emails (READ THEM HERE) show an FBI plot to cover up Bill Clinton’s meeting with Lynch, which Lynch claimed was just about golf and grandchildren.
“Judicial Watch states The new FBI documents show FBI officials were concerned about a leak that Bill Clinton delayed his aircraft taking off in order to “maneuver” a meeting with the attorney general. The resulting story in the Observer is seemingly confirmed and causes a flurry of emails about the source of the article. FBI official(s) write “we need to find that guy” and that the Phoenix FBI office was contacted “in an attempt to stem any further damage.” Another FBI official, working on AG Lynch’s security detail, suggests instituting non-disclosure agreements. The names of the emails authors are redacted. There are no documents showing concern about the meeting itself,” Judicial Watch stated.
“The FBI originally informed Judicial Watch they could not locate any records related to the tarmac meeting,” the nonprofit group added.
A knowledgeable FBI insider tells Big League Politics that it was bizarre and completely revealing that different security units, including apparent city police departments, were contacted about security detail for the trip before it happened:
“The email (dated Sunday July 03, 2016 2:06pm), list recipients who are redacted but they didn’t redact the general locations of the email. The locations are (SECD) which is Security Detail but the others are more interesting (LV) Las Vegas, (NY) New York, (HO) Houston, (CG) Chicago, and (WF) Washington Field. That leads to only, two possibilities. One, additional SWAT teams were supplementing the Phoenix trip. That would be a lot of man power for such a routine trip. Why so much? Two, there were different legs of that trip or previous trips that were of concern!”
The insider is also concerned about the level of access ABC News had to the Justice Department, with the news agency acting as a kind of warning system for DOJ officials that a scandal was breaking out:
“First, the email (dated June 28th, 2016 1:14pm), which is from Mike Levine to several DOJ emails. How does Mike Levine of ABC News have such direct lines of communication with so many DOJ big wigs. I can understand him having a source’s phone number at the DOJ but it’s like he’s a DOJ employee sending out an all agency heads up.”
Big League Politics reported that an audiotape exists of the President’s conversation with Loretta Lynch on the plane, but the National Security Agency (NSA) refuses to release it.
BOMBSHELL: Female Democrat Behind #MeToo Under Investigation For Sexually Assaulting Men"
She looked at me for a second and said, 'I've set a goal for myself to f*** you.'"
February 8, 2018 A female California Democratic lawmaker who played a prominent role in launching the #MeToo movement is currently under a #MeToo investigation herself for allegedly sexually harassing and groping two men, a former staffer and a prominent lobbyist. In its bombshell report on the investigation, Politico notes that the high-profile lawmaker's alleged hypocrisy "threatens to seriously damage the nationwide movement that has been credited with bringing the issue of sexual harassment into the open."
California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, who was featured on the cover of Time magazine's "Silence Breakers" to honor her role as one of the first lawmakers to speak out against sexual harassment, is, as Politico describes her, "a powerful Democratic lawmaker" who serves as chair of the Legislative Women’s Caucus, and "one of Sacramento’s leading voices on the #MeToo issue." She was one of hundreds of women from her area who signed a letter declaring "#WeSaidEnough" in protestation of sexual harassment and has claimed to have personally been a victim of harassment.
However, Garcia is also herself currently under investigation after two men accused her of sexual misconduct. Daniel Fierro of Cerritos, a former staffer to Assemblyman Ian Calderon, told Politico that in 2014, when he was 25, Garcia groped him after an Assembly softball game:
He said she cornered him alone after the annual Assembly softball game in Sacramento as he attempted to clean up the dugout. Fierro, who said Garcia appeared inebriated, said she began stroking his back, then squeezed his buttocks and attempted to touch his crotch before he extricated himself and quickly left.
And Fierro isn't the only man leveling charges at Garcia. A man Politico describes as a "prominent Sacramento lobbyist," who spoke on the condition of anonymity, has also come forward to accuse Garcia of groping him in May 2017:
The lobbyist, who represents a major industry association, said that Garcia appeared to have been drinking heavily at a fundraiser hosted by Governor Jerry Brown for state Senator Josh Newman at the de Veres bar in Sacramento. He said he was heading out the door in part to avoid the assemblywoman — who had been increasingly “flirtatious” and had called him on a few occasions before for late night drinks which he repeatedly declined.
“She came back and was whispering real close and I could smell the booze and see she was pretty far gone,’’ he said. “She looked at me for a second and said, “I’ve set a goal for myself to fuck you.”
At that point, Garcia “stepped in front of me and reaches out and is grabbing for my crotch,’’ he said. That was “the line in the sand,” according to the lobbyist, and he stopped her. “I was four inches from her, eyeball to eyeball -- and I said, ‘That ain’t gonna happen.’”
Garcia issued a statement Thursday in response to the reports of the investigation into her alleged sexual misconduct.
"Every complaint about sexual harassment should be taken seriously and I will participate fully in any investigation that takes place," she said in the statement. "The details of these claims have never been brought to my attention until today. I can confirm that I did attend the 2014 legislative softball game with a number of members and my staff. I can also say I have zero recollection of engaging in inappropriate behavior and such behavior is inconsistent with my values."
One of Garcia's spokeswomen clarified afterward that the assemblywoman had in fact been aware of the report to the Assembly Rules committee, but wasn't aware of the "details" of the complaints against her.

Dem’s DACA Beans Spilled: Amnesty Key To Liberal Election Schemes
By Andrew West January 11, 2018
For ages, the liberal left has been employing one dastardly tactic after another in order to maintain some relevance in an increasingly conservative American landscape.You see, the left’s progressive ideologies cannot, by nature, be proven effective until they are enacted – a proposition that much of America is uncomfortable with due to the content of the characters who openly advocate for such change. The risk versus reward is skewed heavily, almost undeniably to the risk end of the spectrum, making a a wholesale maneuvering of all of America’s eggs into the left’s basket is just plain foolish.
That is why the left has such a hard time with elections; they simply cannot win over large swaths of American voters due to their bizarre, idealistic ramblings.
Instead of attempting to convince the vastness of America that they are correct, the left chooses instead to divide the nation into tiny, manageable sections of voters in horrifically bigoted ways. They will fight for the feminist vote by adjusting the democratic party’s appearance to be more women-friendly. Then, after they’ve secured these votes, they do the same with the LGBTQ community. Then, once they have that demographic in their pocket, they’ll split them as well by putting a profound emphasis on the transgender community that falls within the larger bounds of the LGBTQ group, in hopes of dividing and conquering these American demographics separately.
Never mind the fact that the transgender community’s goals run completely perpendicular to the already-in-the-bag feminists. The left just wants the votes.
One of the largest voter groups that the left attempted to tackle in recent decades have been illegal immigrants. Seeing that this demographic may be too large on their own, the democrats have narrowed this year’s emphasis down to DACA recipients – a vile and cold tactic that has now been officially exposed.
“A leaked memo from the left-wing organization, the Center for American Progress Action Fund, admits that passing an amnesty for the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is ‘a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.’
“According to the memo sent to Democrats, which is co-authored by former Hillary Clinton official Jennifer Palmieri, the Democratic Party is relying on a DACA amnesty deal — that President Trump seems more open to now than ever before — in order to ensure future wins in Congressional and presidential elections.
“The memo states:
“Democrats are urged in the memo to not support any 2018 spending bills this month that does not include a DACA amnesty where illegal aliens are given a pathway to U.S. citizenship, saying later that it will ‘jeopardize’ elections for Democrats.”
While much of the free press has been attempting to expose this liberal cultural warfare for years, the idea is just now trickling into the mainstream.
Worse still is the fact that these neo-segregationists are now radicalizing as President Trump continues to awaken the nation’s conservative giant.
And they called us “deplorable”. Give me a break.
Report: Barack Obama being asked to return his Nobel Peace Prize after allegations of aiding Islamic terrorists
December 20, 2017
Ben Ferenchak / CCL
Israeli politicians have called for Barack Obama to forfeit his Nobel Peace Prize. The outrage follows a Sunday report by Politico that the former president blocked criminal investigations into operatives of Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Lebanese terror group, to pave the way for the Iran deal.
The report claims that the Obama administration obstructed a Drug Enforcement Administration task force in its efforts to prosecute suspected drug and weapons traffickers linked to the terror group.
There can be no doubt that Trump understands America’s priorities better than Obama did.
Calls to forfeit Nobel Peace PrizeA chorus of anger erupted among Israeli politicians after the Politico story broke.
“Obama must return his Nobel Peace Prize,” if the Politico story is correct, Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid said.
“Israel warned repeatedly that there can be no connection between the nuclear deal and anti-terror activity, certainly against Hezbollah… We also warned of this specifically, because of the proven link between Hezbollah and Iran.”
Former Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren said, “It was clear that the government was willing to do anything to reach an agreement, including ignoring Iranian terror that took the lives of hundreds of Americans and Israelis and hundreds of thousands of Syrians.”
“Up until the Obama Administration, every American President fought terrorism uncompromisingly… I am convinced that the Trump administration will not turn from that tradition, and that the outrageous and mistaken policy that was revealed this week will not be repeated,” Regional Cooperation Minister Tazchi Hanegbi said.
Communications Minister Ayoob Kara put it in plain terms when he said, “Does anyone still doubt why Obama was bad for Israel and how Trump is better for us?”
Indeed, it looks like the Obama administration was involved in more underhanded dealings than previously thought.
Project CassandraThe bombshell report by Politico details how Obama administration officials obstructed a DEA task force, Project Cassandra, in its efforts to prosecute Hezbollah operatives involved in global drug and weapons trafficking operations as well as money laundering. According to the report, Obama’s reluctance to prosecute directly led to the group amassing huge profits and expanding to the point that it became a global terror force.
The Iran-backed terror group ran a global crime syndicate that totaled $1 billion annually from drugs and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.
It’s like something out of a crime thriller movie.
Obama-era Justice and Treasury department officials delayed, hindered, and blocked requests from Project Cassandra leaders to charge major Hezbollah operatives involved in the crime syndicate. According to the report, the red tape got worse the closer the Obama administration got to securing the Iran deal.
“When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests,” according to the report.
Cassandra ran for eight years out of a top secret DEA office in Chantilly, Virginia, where officials amassed evidence of a global criminal network, tracing a conspiracy to Hezbollah and their state sponsor, Iran. They discovered cocaine shipments running from Latin America to the Middle East and Europe and “multi-ton loads of cocaine” entering the U.S. from Venezuela and Mexico.
The Justice Department refused to charge a Hezbollah-linked Lebanese bank that allegedly laundered billions in drug profits. The State Department rejected requests to lure major players to countries where they could be arrested.
The Obama administration also refused to apply pressure to extradite Ali Fayad, a Putin-linked Lebanese arms dealer who ran guns to Bashar Al-Assad and a suspected top Hezbollah operative who was arrested in the Czech Republic in 2014. Another suspected operative who goes by the nickname “the Ghost”, a man who is believed to be one of the world’s biggest cocaine traffickers, was also let off the hook despite being under sealed U.S. indictment for years.
“The administration also rejected repeated efforts by Project Cassandra members to charge Hezbollah’s military wing as an ongoing criminal enterprise under a federal Mafia-style racketeering statute,” the report said.
Cassandra officials further allege that the administration refused to label Hezbollah a “significant transnational criminal organization” and “blocked other strategic initiatives that would have given the task force additional legal tools, money and manpower to fight it.”
Deliberate obstructionProject Cassandra officials were transferred to other assignments after the deal went through in January of 2016. David Asher, a former Defense Department finance analyst who worked on Project Cassandra, said the obstruction was deliberate: a “policy decision.”
“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” said Asher, according to Politico. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”
Katherine Bauer, an Obama-era Treasury Department official, said in a written congressional testimony to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs that “under the Obama administration … these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.”
Hezbollah was founded in Lebanon in the 1980s to counter Israeli invasion and occupation. The Islamist group has a political arm that holds seats in Lebanon’s parliament.
Republicans call for investigationA Republican lawmaker on Monday called for a House investigation into the matter. Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-N.C.) sent a letter to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy calling for a probe into the disturbing revelations. Pittenger told Fox News:
These revelations are shocking and infuriating. While American soldiers were bravely fighting ISIS terrorists, with some paying the ultimate price, the Obama administration reportedly was protecting Hezbollah terrorists who were funding themselves by trafficking illegal drugs.
No wonder President Obama couldn’t bring himself to call them ‘Radical Islamist Terrorists.’
Obama administration officials have tried to downplay the significance of the reporting, but this will certainly become difficult as the story develops further.
Demoted DOJ Official’s Wife Obtained Unusual License When She Went To Work At Fusion GPS
by J.E. Dyer | Dec 12, 2017 | Crime/Corruption
The latest story to break about the bias Mueller probe is that Nellie H. Ohr, the wife of recently demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS in the summer and fall of 2016. Actually there is a bit more, why did she get a radio operator’s license as she began working for the company that created the bogus dossier?
I’m thinking this can’t be a coincidence.
Fox’s James Rosen summarizes:
[I]nvestigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year. The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016.
Nellie Ohr has indeed written on Russia-related subjects, although what I can find indicates more of a historical than a current-events focus for her work. She seems to have had an emphasis on the Soviet era and its immediate aftermath. As Fox indicates, she was a history instructor at Vassar for some number of years.
For me, the most interesting aspect of her biography is that she has worked as a translator. Given her baccalaureate degree in Russian literature, her language facility is presumably in Russian. Online sources indicate she did research in Russia in the late 1980s, which, again, would indicate a Russian facility.
(Screen cap, author, Dec 2017)We don’t know how her spoken Russian is, but if it’s functional, she looks like an ideal hire for what Fusion GPS needed in 2016: plugged directly into the DOJ, and with a language facility in Russian. Emphasis probably on the former.
It’s of more than passing interest that apparently, after that stint with Fusion, she was working for Accenture, the management services giant, through October 2017. According to Daily Caller, she was in the cybersecurity consulting branch, and gave a talk on a noteworthy topic that month:
She was employed at Accenture Security, the cybersecurity consulting firm, as recently as October.
On Oct. 3 she gave a presentation at the 2017 Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center summit on the topic: “Ties Between Government Intelligence Services and Cyber Criminals – Closer Than You Think?”
A description of the event reads:
The past year has seen cyberthreat actors arrested, indicted or identified in intelligence reports by US and European governments that many experts believe point to potential ties between government intelligence services and cybercrime actors. In this session learn about the drivers and mechanisms between state and criminal cooperation through a case study that will explore how seemingly ordinary cybercrime can be combined with strategic espionage.
Nellie Ohr doesn’t seem to have prior cybersecurity expertise in her professional profile. But Accenture has a number of revolving doors with federal agencies, think tanks, and consulting firms in the D.C. area, and donates money to politicians right and left.
The company may be best remembered by the public as the one that stepped in — without a competitive bidding process — to rescue the collapsing Obamacare website.
But Accenture also partnered with the Obama administration to address the global refugee crisis, mainly by importing refugees on work visas to work jobs in the United States.
All of that has the usual feel to it, and doesn’t seem to have much to do with the history and politics of Russia, per se.
But Ms. Ohr also obtained a particular type of license in May 2016 — a heavily freighted month in the Fusion GPS-dossier timeline — apparently just before, or just as, she went to work for Fusion. She acquired from the FCC an amateur radio operator’s license. The licensing document indicates that it’s the first one she had obtained.
The date of the license is 23 May 2016. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that she got her first amateur radio operator’s license just at that particular time. Perhaps her interest in amateur radio reached its zenith in the late spring in 2016, and she finally decided to do something about it.
As the screen caps illustrate, her classification is Technician Group D (novice), and is eligible to use radio service “HA – Amateur,” described here.
(Screen cap, author, Dec 2017)
(Screen cap, author, Dec 2017)
(Screen cap, author, Dec 2017)For reference, according to sources in the UK cited by news outlets like the Independent, Christopher Steele’s contract with Fusion GPS started in May 2016.
Sources familiar with Mr Steele’s work said his for Fusion GPS started in May 2016 and stopped with the election.
And, of course, as the timeline I compiled in October indicates (link above), the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC hired Fusion GPS, through the law firm Perkins Coie, in April 2016.
It may be significant as well that the cyber intrusion on the DNC email system was detected on 29 April 2016 (see the timeline). We need not get fanciful, or ahead of ourselves, but one can obviously think of more than one reason why the use of amateur radio for communications with certain parties might have seemed like a good idea at that point, to at least some of the people involved.
It’s worth looking into. Let me put it more strongly: only a fool would fail to look into it.
Democratic Senator in Hot Water Over Massive Travel Expenses
By Andrew West November 27, 2017
The Washington establishment of the D.C swamp continues to rake the American taxpayer over the coals this week after stunning accusations have surfaced.For far too long, the fat cats on Capitol Hill have been exploiting their positions of power in order to milk the American people for all that they are worth. Their salaries are exorbitant, they are exempt from government-mandated Obamacare, and they have been bowing down to the special interest overlords of Big Industry for decades. Now that Donald Trump is in office, we will hopefully be able to smoke out many of these bottom-feeding varmints for good.
Next on the list of D.C. deplorables is democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, who has apparently been running a travel racket at the expense of We The People.
“Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) took action earlier this year to make her family’s private plane untrackable by the public, according to documents obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration.
“McCaskill garnered much criticism ahead of her last reelection campaign over her use of a private jet at taxpayer expense, causing her to demand her husband ‘sell the damn plane.’ But they bought a new, more expensive plane shortly after she won that election. Now, as she gears up for her next election fight, they have taken action to limit scrutiny of the plane’s use.
“The company hired by McCaskill to operate the plane, a 2009 Pilatus PC-12/47E, wrote to the FAA earlier this year in April to ask that tracking information on the plane be blocked from the public, according to email records obtained by the Washington Free Beacon through a Freedom of Information Act request.
“Representatives for McCaskill did not respond to multiple inquiries into the reason for the request and whether it had to do with her upcoming election.
“The Washington Free Beacon reported in October that McCaskill had spent nearly $21,000 to use her private plane on the campaign trail in just three months. McCaskill was also spotted using her private plane in August for travel between town halls she held in Missouri, which are events held by her official Senate office.
“McCaskill also failed to respond to request for comment on those trips.”
The invincible attitude of these Washington D.C. crooks has been a focus of the Trump administration and of the President himself for quite some time, and McCaskill will certainly be unable to avoid the onslaught of criticism that this move brings.
While the rest of the nation is fixated on the perverse and salacious actions of Al Franken, John Conyers, and other democratic deviants, we cannot be distracted long…there is still plenty of swamp to be drained yet.
RESISTANCE ROYALTY: PELOSI, SOROS HEADLINE LEFT’S BIGGEST DARK MONEY CONFERENCE
Private memo gives inside look at Democracy Alliance’s latest secret donor meeting
Washington Free Beacon - NOVEMBER 18, 2017
CARLSBAD, Calif.—A secretive three-day conference where big money liberal donors are plotting the next steps of the “resistance” will be headlined by Friday speeches by billionaire George Soros and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, according to internal documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The Democracy Alliance, a donor club of deep-pocketed liberal donors that each pledge to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups, descended on California’s posh La Costa Resort on Wednesday morning for its fall donor summit. The group continued its tradition of secrecy, promising all members and guests of the summit their participation would “remain confidential.”
The first page of the conference agenda, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and can be viewed in its entirety below, lays out “participation guidelines,” explaining that the Democracy Alliance is a “safe place” for donors and activists to meet. Guests are instructed not to share members’ names with the press and not to post to any social media sites, to contact Democracy Alliance if “the media or a blogger” contacts them, and to “refrain from leaving sensitive materials out where others may find them.”
This latter directive was ignored.
The agenda for the meeting, titled “Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future,” lays out three full days of events culminating in a Friday night dinner headlined by Pelosi.
BREAKING: Senior Dem Resigns For Sexual Misconduct, Its Getting Ugly
November 18, 2017
Cases of sexual misconduct are coming out as more victims come forward to tell their tales. The latest person to get caught up in this type of disturbing crime just so happens to be a senior member of the Democrat party.
CBS News reports that the Florida Democratic Party chairman resigned as of Friday due to allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior. Stephen Bittel decided to step down when four Democrat candidates for governor all claimed that he should step aside. As a result, the party sent out a tweet with a statement from Bittel attached. Bittel held his position since January of this year.
The statement deflected away from the allegations that Bittel was behaving inappropriately. Instead, he seemed to focus his attention on the accomplishments of the Democrats in Florida.
“When my personal situation becomes distracting to our core mission of electing Democrats and making Florida better, it is time for me to step aside,” Bittel stated in his statement.
He continued, “I am proud of what we have built as a party and the wins we have had for Florida families, but I apologize for all who have felt uncomfortable during my tenure at the Democratic Party.”
Bittel then closed out the statement by saying, “I am working with our leadership to set the date for our party to elect my successor.” It is unknown who could take his place at this time.
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, former US Rep. Gwen Graham, and businessman Chris King all called for Bittel to step down when Politico broke the story of his misconduct.
The claims came from women who worked close to Bittel. They said that he would make faces at them, comment on their appearance — including their breasts — and would do other things that made them uncomfortable. Reports also state that he had a breast-shaped stress ball on his desk at work.
None of the women said that he touched them or assaulted them in any way. He did, however, make the environment uncomfortable for the women who worked with him by sexually harassing them.
“No one should have to work in an uncomfortable environment. Bittel’s behavior and atmosphere he has created is unacceptable,” Graham said in a statement, leading up to Bittel’s resignation.
Graham explained that she called Bittel personally and asked him to resign following the allegations. The concern there appeared to be partially for the women who were left feeling like they were sexually harassed at work, and partially for the “well-being” of the Democrat party’s image in Florida. The realization that this unacceptable behavior called for swift action, and in that regard, they succeeded.
Bittel is just one of many prominent men to get called out for sexual harassment in the past couple of months. After world-famous Hollywood Democrat Harvey Weinstein was exposed, more women started coming out to tell their tales. We expect that there will be more cases like Bittel’s flooding to the forefront as more women come forward.
BREAKING: Seth Rich Hush Money?
1 month ago
During the 2016 Presidential Election, the biggest story became how Russia “hacked” the election. The “17 intelligence agencies” that Hillary Rodham Clinton cited all relied on word from a contracted company, Crowdstrike.
Crowdstrike is a technology company that specializes in cyber-security. Not only is there conflict of interest with Crowdstrike receiving payments, campaign data shows some incredible correlations with the payments that were made.
All payments cited below are part of the Federal Election Committee data of campaign spending on the www.fec.gov website.
The first payments made were preemptive measures on May 5th, 2016 when the DNC was looking to figure out where the breach of security was. Payments made on May 5th, 2016 of $7,650.00 and $1,462.50 were likely paid for Crowdstrike to install their Falcon software, a stellar technology security suite that would identify any internal or external security breach.
The final email on Wikileaks from the DNC is dated May 25th, 2016. Crowdstrike would have had complete knowledge of the party that ripped the emails from the server.
The next payment that was made to Crowdstrike occurred on July 11th, 2016 for the amount of $98,849.84. The relationship to this date happens to be the day after DNC Data Director of New Voter Registration Seth Rich was murdered.
The final payment to date is August 3rd, 2016. This coincides with another murder in the District of Columbia. Shawn Lucas, who died on August 2nd of last year, was the DNC Process Server and close friend of Seth Rich. The payment on August 3rd included two checks, one for $113,645.77 and the other for $4,275.00.
We find it highly coincidental that both of these payments came within 24 hours of two high profile murders in Washington D.C., which both have connection to the DNC.
The initial and final payment was referring to Technology Consulting and Technology Infrastructure Maintenance, linked here. It does not include the licensing of the software under the description of Data Services Subscription.
Soros Transfers $18 BILLION To His Open Society Foundations
1:03 PM 10/17/2017
Left-wing financier George Soros has transferred $18 billion to the Open Society Foundations, the network of non-profits Soros uses to advance his left-wing ideology both in the United States and around the world.
The massive transfer, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, is roughly equivalent to the gross domestic product (GDP) of Afghanistan, according to World Bank data. Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, suggested that the transfer is a way for the 87-year-old Soros to avoid the estate tax — also known as the death tax — which penalizes large inheritances.
Play VideoInside Philanthropy reported last year that Soros, who has saidthat he considers himself to be “some kind of god,” began laying the groundwork for the foundation to continue his mission after he dies. (RELATED: Leaked Emails Show Clinton Campaign Coordinating With Soros Organization)
Hacked OSF documents published last summer shed light on the way in which Soros has used his foundation to advance progressive, open-borders policies both domestically and abroad.
The foundation has channeled significant funding to Europe, for example, to defeat populist candidates who clash with Soros’ open borders worldview. Soros has also used OSF to secretly funnel money to foreign government officials, funneling the money through a German think tank in order to skirt foreign laws against doing so. The foundation has also successfully influenced global migration policies, according to one internal OSF memo, which said Europe’s refugee crisis last year provided “new opportunities” for the organization to exert its influence.

In the U.S., OSF has provided funding for the Black Lives Matter movement and open borders activists. The foundation has also provided funding to anti-Trump “resistance” groups, funded opposition research on critics of radical Islam and attempted to influence Supreme Court rulings.
Soros’ foundation is now the second-largest philanthropic organization in the U.S., according to the WSJ’s report, behind only the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Southern Poverty Law Center’s Full Frontal Attack On Law-Abiding Americans
Aug 30, 2017 Read More Articles by Bradlee Dean
“The Southern Poverty Law Center is attempting to change your reality into the reality that they want you to believe in.” (Isaiah 5:20)
Finally. The Washington Timesreports a conservative Christian media group has slapped the Southern Poverty Law Center with a defamation lawsuit after being listed alongside neo-Nazis and white supremacists on its “hate map.”
For the record, The Southern Poverty Law Center has The Sons of Liberty on their site listed in “General Hate.” We are consulting with our attorneys at this time to consider taking the same action or adjoining ourselves to this lawsuit.
First and foremost America, I am not here in anyway attempting to change the Laws (The Mosiac Institution-Common Law -Constitutional Republic, Article 4, Section 4 of the United States Constitution) nor am I attempting to change your values. I am here to enforce and to reaffirm your laws and your values. In doing so, this requires an expose on un-American groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center who are attempting to use the law against the law (Psalm 94:20) while aiding and abetting enemies both without and within which is defined as treason.
Second, the Southern Poverty Law Center is simply pointing at the groups and ministries that are effective in pulling off the mask of the SPLC (Revelation 12:17; John 15:22).
They are even going so far as to push a hate agenda against the police which only exhibits there hatred for American Law (2 Thessalonians 2:8-10).
International criminal and financier of Southern Poverty Law Center George Soros also financially backs over 200 other anti-American groups
Soros is responsible for stating:
“Destroying America will be the culmination of my life’s work.”
The SPLC has already incriminated themselves, like that of George Soros, time and time again with statements such as this.
“Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate crimes and so on…I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.” —Mark Potok, director of intelligence at Southern Poverty Law Center.
Yet, for some reason or another, the media keeps pushing the narrative that these are the people to listen to when it comes to pointing out the haters while a new poll recently came out that 94% of Americans do not believe the media.
[You Tube Video]
The lying media, along with anti-American groups such as Southern Poverty Law Center (Founder Morris Dees defended the KKK concerning their crimes against people of color), are simply attempting to indoctrinate Americans to believe that the law-abiding citizen is the hater when in fact the opposite is true!
Remember that all crime is motivated by hate, which means those who are hating are the ones that are violating laws (1 John 3:4). And how does one know if someone is hating? Look to the Laws of our Republic.
“For by the law is the knowledge of sin” (Crime against God’s moral Law Exodus 20) (Romans 3:20).
Also remember, that law is there to liberate those who obey the law (John 8:36; 2 Corinthians 3:17).
“The end of the law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of law, where there is no law, there is no freedom.” —John Locke
And what you will see here is that the Southern Poverty Law Center is promoting and attempting to advance crime by labeling those who speak out against their crimes to be labeled as the haters (Revelation 12:10).
For example, on The Southern Poverty Law Center’s website they have on their hate list those who are “Anti-LGBT.”
Yet, in all 50 States of our union, our laws condemn sodomy. Which, of course, is found in Scripture with over 30 different references.
The SPLC is attempting to advocate what American law clearly condemns.
Furthermore, SPLC’s site is set as a “hit list” for those who believe their propaganda.
Remember twenty-eight year old Floyd Lee Corkins II, the man who attempted to murder members of the Family Research Council in Washington, D. C. back in August of 2012? He pleaded guilty to three out of ten charges, including committing an act of terrorism. He didn’t plead guilty to a “hate crime.”
However, according to an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation following the shooting, Corkins wanted to kill as many people as possible, then smear their faces with Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, and kill the guard. He had also taken substantial steps in the preceding week to carry out other crimes. His use of the sandwiches was to “make a statement against the people who work in that building … and with their stance against gay rights and Chick-fil-A.”
His Statement of Offense also read, “He committed the shooting for political reasons. He had identified the FRC as an anti-gay organization on the Southern Poverty Law Center Website.”
“Consistent with his statement to the FBI,” the Statement of Offense continued, “a subsequent search of Corkins’ family computer revealed that on the afternoon of Sunday, August 12, Corkins used the computer to visit the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website, as well as the websites for the FRC and the second organization on his handwritten list.”
Corkins acknowledged as part of his plea agreement that he had taken a number of steps to plan the shooting. He bought the pistol the week before and practiced firing it. He also visited the headquarters of the Family Research Council, and he purchased the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches the day before the shooting. The plea agreement said Corkins was filmed picking out the gun by a French television crew doing a piece on the ease with which firearms can be purchased in the United States.
Corkins also acknowledged that he considered making a bomb but didn’t have the patience to do it. In his pants pocket, police found a handwritten list of groups that also oppose gay marriage. Lawyers did not include the list of organizations in the plea agreement.
Corkins pleaded guilty to three charges: interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition, assault with intent to kill while armed and act of terrorism while armed, a charge based on the shooting being intended to intimidate anyone who is associated with or supports the Family Research Council and other organizations that oppose gay marriage. (This has never been in the history of the world).
SPLC’s hate list map also calls out “Anti-Muslim”!
Apparently, they forgot what the media has been pushing on the American people for the last 16 years now concerning September 11, 2001. Who was flying those planes?
Look at some of these headlines.
Muslim who Stabbed Cop at Michigan’s Flint Airport: As “Soldier of Allah,” My “Sole Purpose” Was to Kill Cops
First Somali-Muslim Police Officer in Minnesota Murders Unarmed Blonde Yoga Instructor
And since the ill-advised and ignorant like to make repeated reference to Wikipedia, let me point the finger to them when they actually blurt out the truth in their confusion.
Take a look at their list of Islamist terrorist attacks.
If Americans would simply look to the law, it will clearly expose the organizations like the SPLC for what they are and what it is that they are attempting to establish.
Treason: Article 3, Section 3 of the US Constitution
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.
What Americans are dealing with today is what I have been warning about for 22 years now while diverting Americans from the sowing fields (Luke 7:35).
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” -Russian Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin
How about 12 years of indoctrination!
This organization, along with many others (Snopes, Facebook, Google, Amazon etc…) and the establishment media, is working hand in glove to win over public opinion to change law to policy which works against “We the people!” (Isaiah 5:20)
“Our government rests in public opinion. Whoever can change public opinion can change the government, practically just so much.” –Abraham Lincoln
Nothing could be further from the truth, we are a constitutional Republic, ruled by law and not of men.
John Adams, the second President of the United States, said that we are a “Government of Laws, and not of men.”
“No enactment of man can be considered law unless it conforms to the law of God. –Willam Blackstone (The Torah)

WATCH: Texas Democrat Issues Insane Statement, Claims Houston Is 50′ BELOW
Posted by Danny Abarno | Sep 1, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Democrat Shelia Jackson foolishly claims Houston is 50 ft below sea level
Democrats continue to reveal their true intelligence levels almost everyday since Trump announced his campaign to become President. In the wake of the devastating hurricane that has ravaged Southeastern Texas, Democrats have begun to show their stupidity levels like never before. Democrat and Congressional Black Caucus member Shelia Jackson (D-TX) claimed that the city she represents and lives in, Houston, is 50 feet below sea level.
Not only is this absurd and ridiculous claim untrue, it reveals that Jackson has little to no idea about the city she lives in. This woman is supposed to represent citizens of the United States in ways that best serve their interests and yet she does not know that the city of Houston is actually above sea level? Can she really believe that any city ever could possibly flourish and survive by being 50 feet below sea level? These kinds of statements are truly shocking as the left continues to reveal that they actually have no idea what they are doing other than trying to claw at any money and power they can get to.
Members of the Cajun Navy came all the way from Louisiana to use their time, money, and equipment to help those in need of rescuing
The behavior of Democrats after the election, and especially during a time of crisis like Hurricane Harvey, has been divisive, dangerous, and overall childish. They have done nothing constructive for the country as they are legitimately trying to say our election was a sham and obstruct literally everything the President does.
Never in American history has there been such an attempt to discredit and ruin our election process as the Democrats are doing now. They have used every excuse and attacked from every angle since Trump began his long and difficult road to the White House all because they are soon to be revealed for what they truly are, monstrous power hungry tyrants.
Everyday American heroes have stepped up to help others during the crisis caused by Hurricane Harvey. This image shows a civilian “vehicle” pulling out a National Guard Truck
Democrats like Jackson are not in short supply as many of her colleagues make the same nonsensical arguments constantly. Whether it is Nanci Pelosi calling Trump the wrong name, she called him Bush several times, or Debbie Wasserman-Schultz complaining that investigations into her employees are racist, these Democrats will say some truly ridiculous things. Thankfully, Jackson saved enough time in her interview to use the race card and somehow claim that Harvey was racist and the neighborhoods hit hardest were African-American communities.
The Democrats will do anything they can possibly do to either gain votes or attention. In Houston, Democrats and those on the left used the crisis to exploit climate change narratives, attack the President and his wife, resist Republican support by not evacuating Houston in time, and even now claiming the hurricane was racist.
The Democrats truly could not care about the thousands of people’s homes destroyed as their continual push to attack Republicans and conservatives has been unrelenting in the past year. Some Democrats even went so far as to claim that people in Texas deserved this kind of calamity for voting for Trump, truly despicable.
True Americans do not look at the color of skin or the letter next to one’s political ideology. They help each other when the time is needed, Democrats have only used this opportunity to further cause divide.
Shelia Jackson’s comments continue to show what kinds of people are Democrat politicians. They are clueless sellouts who will do nothing but complain and complain about Republicans and conservatives until their demands are either met or settled. They have become a party of desperation and Anti-Americanism as their continual message of resist and obstruct has made it clear that they do not want to see America prosper under a different kind of leadership. Their entire claim that Trump stole the election is based off of lie after lie as all the DNC emails did was show more Americans who the Democrats really are; liars and cheaters.
I would like to take this time to commemorate all of the unsung heroes that sacrificed their time and energy to help their fellow Americans. This includes those who went out of their way to either rescue people, comfort those who lost everything, or even the ones who pushed cars through knee-high water.
These true Americans did not care about the color of skin nor the person they voted for because they just wanted to help. These people have been physically attacked over the city as calls for help have left several rescuers in peril as the “rescues” turned out to be ambushes. Democrats and criminals are using Hurricane Harvey in the same way as both sets of people are trying to use the crisis to further their goals of getting money and power.

BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi Outed As Her Father’s Confederate Secret Goes Public

Just recently, it was revealed that Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) father, who served as the Democratic Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland, supported Confederate monuments (pictured above).
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is a well-known opponent of Confederate monuments. Just recently, however, it was revealed that her father, who served as the Democratic Mayor of Baltimore, Maryland, actually supported Confederate monuments.
Specifically, while pushing back against Pelosi’s call to have Confederate statues removed during a recent Fox News interview, Ron Meyer, the Editor at Red Alert Politics, stated, “Democrats have a pretty poor history on Civil Rights, including Nancy Pelosi’s own father who was the Mayor of Baltimore...(Read More...)

Charlottesville Democrat Resigns As His Racist Messages LEAK
Posted by Georgette Walrath |
Aug 15, 2017
Wes Bellamy, the Vice-mayor of Charlottesville, VA, High School Teacher, and member of the Education Board has resigned because of his racist, sexist tweets. He was also instrumental in orchestrating the mob who wanted to remove the statue on Saturday.
After the violence in Charlottesville this weekend, many people are wondering about the society of the town, and why it is so divided. Perhaps the people have been taking their cues from their elected and appointed leaders. The Vice-Mayor and Board of Education member in the Virginia town has just resigned following the discovery of his disgustingly racist comments and posts on social media.
Although there is ample evidence that the riots and injury that took place on Saturday were the result of a premeditated plan of leftist agitators, there’s no denying the fact that Wes Bellamy, a 30-year-old high school computer science teacher and politician is a racist. His twitter feed is chock full of violent hate.
Bellamy was appointed to the Board of Education in March by Governor Terry McAuliffe, but the state leader was “horrified” by what was discovered last week.
Bellamy’s hate-filled rhetoric has helped fuel the division in Charlottesville, and now it’s been discovered that he frequently tweeted racist messages.
His vicious hate speech was uncovered by a local blogger. Jason Kessler unearthed the entries found on Bellamy’s twitter feed, accurately labeling the vice-mayor a racist. He criticized Bellamy’s adamant attempts to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee and called him on his efforts to “attack” the history of the United States.
“In lieu of making headlines for planning Charlottesville highway development, infrastructure and water conservation like other members of city council, it seems that Bellamy has dedicated himself almost exclusively to his Afrocentric racial agenda,” Kessler wrote.
Bellamy’s account has been made private, but Kessler posted images that he’d collected, which demonstrate the anger and hate of the vice-mayor. Using that information, the newspaper for the University of Virginia followed up in the investigation. They found even more evidence.
Bellamy wrote that white women “smell like future assault charges n deli meat.” He also used derogatory remarks about women in positions of power and homosexuals.
Bellamy was placed on administrative leave from the Albemarle High School, where he was a staff member. Albemarle County School Board Chairwoman Kate Acuff explained last week that he would remain on leave pending an investigation into the tweets from 2009 to 2014.
“Many of these postings contain extremely vulgar and offensive language that directly contradicts the values of our school division,” Acuff said. “The School Board rejects these statements in their entirety.”
So essentially, while he was in charge of teens in Charlottesville, he was making horridly racist comments about his opinions and views. Who knows how many kids he infected with his bigotry and hate.
A sample of one of many offensive messages Bellamy tweeted.
In October 2011, Bellamy retweeted an offensive portrayal of having sex with a sleeping woman and the comment said that “if she moan it aint rape.” Bellamy added the response, “Word.” In another conversation, he retweeted a message in January 2012 that included a gay slur.
Earlier that year, he retweeted “this weekend I’ll be on a whitegirl diet.” He shared the message and added “a rape charge waiting to happen.” In yet another racist comment, he said that white women “smell like future assault charges n deli meat.”
He also related white women to the “devil” and made fun of them wearing sundresses. His other misogynist remarks included this particularly offensive post, “I’m all for equal opportunity..but a Female Principal with a school full of female teachers is fkn a sure fire way to fk up our lil boys smh.”
Vice-mayor Bellamy also tweeted his approval of having sex with an unconscious women, agreeing with the comment that if “they moan” it isn’t rape.
Virginia Flaggers, a liberal group intent on creating revisionist history and removing the monument to Robert E. Lee, was quick to distance themselves from Bellamy. The group urged members to contact the City Council and “demand he be removed from office” in a Facebook post this weekend.
Bellamy has denied accusations that he is racist. However, if a white city representative, vice-mayor, and someone trusted with the education of students had made similar remarks, the outcry for a hate crime conviction would echo through the nation.
Bellamy retains his position as vice-mayor of the town. Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer said that “in a time when we so urgently need unity, tolerance, and love” such communications “have done real harm to our community.”
“I believe Mr. Bellamy must seriously consider how and whether, in his present role as vice mayor and as a city councilor, he can best serve the common good of Charlottesville,” Signer added.
With a racist man like this in charge of educating high school students, it’s really no wonder that the violence in Charlottesville came to a head last weekend. Such role models poison America’s youth.
This type of racial hatred present in city officials and high school teachers in Charlottesville helps shed some light on the division of the town. Given his disgusting opinions, hopefully Bellamy will never hold such positions of respect again.
As a democrat though, it probably won’t happen. The Washington Post never once mentioned the fact that Bellamy held the vice-mayor position. With astonishingly unconcerned hypocrisy, Bellamy is still calling on Trump to condemn “racists.” Perhaps he might consider condemning his own racism first, instead of excusing his comments on the basis of age.
Self-deluded, self-important people like Bellamy don’t see their own hate, and because he stands for the party of slavery and injustice, Bellamy will most likely receive a free pass.
Methinks Joe Manchin doth protest too much.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is a popular politician in West Virginia. He is often seen as a man who votes “independently” and thinks of his constituents before his party.
Actually, this is kind of a “thing” in West Virginia. The voters there pride themselves on voting not for politicians from a certain party, but on politicians who will “do” for West Virginia.
Sadly, it’s all a bunch of hooey. It’s based on false perceptions and good politicking from certain candidates.
Manchin has this down to a science.
Yes, he’s among the most “conservative” Democrats in the Senate, but that’s not saying much. His voting record is actually most similar to Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (D-VT). See, Manchin just happens to vote “better” on a few key issues, like guns, and he gets to pretend he’s as bipartisan as they come. But the reality is he’s just like most any other Senate Democrat.
Which is why when West Virginia’s Charleston Gazette-Mail asked their Senator about his Republican opponent explaining that Manchin will do whatever he needs to just to be reelected, Manchin reacted with such vigor and vitriol.
West Virginia’s Attorney General, and Republican candidate to unseat Senator Manchin, Patrick Morrisey, recently argued that Manchin should quit his post in the Democrat Party leadership because it simply proved that he cared more about the Democrat Party than he did West Virginia.
When asked if Morrisey’s request and related messaging attempting to tie him in with Democratic leadership affected his decision to not sign the letter, Manchin said he doesn’t care about the attacks and they don’t affect policy decisions.
“I don’t give a s–t, you understand? I just don’t give a s–t,” he said. “Don’t care if I get elected, don’t care if I get defeated, how about that. If they think because I’m up for election, that I can be wrangled into voting for s–t that I don’t like and can’t explain, they’re all crazy.”
“I’m not scared of an election, let’s put it that way. Elections do not bother me or scare me. I’m going to continue to do the same thing I’ve always done, extremely independent.”
Manchin continued, saying signing the letter could force him into a position where modest changes could not be made to potential legislation in exchange for signing on Republican senators’ votes.
“I want to be able to reach out to my friends on the other side and say, ‘Guys, you like anything here, can we do something different, any changes, what would make you comfortable to sign on?’” he said.
The hypocrisy from Manchin is thick. On the one hand he pretends to vote with West Virginia always at the forefront of his mind. Yet, he is part of the leadership in his party… a party that wants to strip voters of their 2nd Amendment rights, something that is highly valued in West Virginia. He’s a leader in the party that went to war against Coal, but coal is West Virginia’s most important industry. He’s a leader in the party that hates Christianity, yet he lives in a state that is overwhelmingly positive about the Christian faith. He’s a leader in the party that has been attacking, undermining, and slandering our President, a President that West Virginia voters overwhelmingly support.
The simple truth is that Joe Manchin isn’t for West Virginia. Joe Manchin is all about himself, his political power, and his party.
West Virginia voters should do themselves a favor and send him into retirement in 2018.
JULY 26, 2017 FAR LEFT WATCH STAFF
Far left militia training manual includes sections on “kidnapping”, “executions”, “terrorism”
Right wing radio personality, Dana Loesch and The National Rifle Association recently came under fire for launching a “controversial” ad. There was an immediate backlash from numerous left leaning publications claiming that the video was a call to violence. Interestingly enough, the recent spike in political violence has come overwhelmingly from the left. Even more concerning is the growth of far left organizations openly advocating for “armed struggle”, especially considering the recent targeted shooting of Republican House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others by a deranged left wing activist.
One of the largest and fastest growing organizations that fits this description is Redneck Revolt, a self described “above ground militant formation” founded in June of 2016 that claims to have 30+ vetted branches nationwide.
Redneck Revolt’s organizing principles mirror much of what you would see on any other far left organizing platform. They begin with their very reasonable, very easy to support, opposition to “white supremacy”. They then dive into class theory, anti-capitalist, and anti-wealth rhetoric that could have been copied directly from The Communist Manifesto. And finally, they wrap up with open calls for “militant resistance” and “revolution”.
Since their inception, Redneck Revolt has been very busy recruiting at gun shows and community events, advocating for class war, contributing to the far left anarchist website It’s Going Down, and conducting armed anti-Trump demonstrations.
But what’s most alarming are the resources they provide on their website. They promote several PDFs that endorse “armed struggle” and even offer a 36 page “Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerrilla” (bottom right of resource page) which pictures left-wing militants using RPGs and outlines tactics for guerrilla warfare including sections on “sabotage”, “kidnapping”, “executions”, “armed propaganda”, and “terrorism”.
That’s right. A far left militia claiming to have 30+ vetted branches is providing training materials for violent guerrilla warfare and all of this information is publicly available on their own website. Not surprisingly, the same left-leaning publications that were outraged by the NRA ad I mentioned earlier have not reported on this publicly available information. In fact, some of these publications have even championed the growth of the far left militia movement. In June, Mother Jones published an article praising Redneck Revolt and other left-wing militants. In July, The Guardian published an article with similar sentiments.
The mission of Far Left Watch is to investigate, expose, and combat far left extremism. Please share this article via Twitter, Facebook, etc. and encourage friendly media and YouTube content creators to report on this breaking information.
Democrat Schultz Enters Spotlight As Her IT Team Tries To Escape Country
Posted by Danny Abarno | Jul 26, 2017 | Breaking News
The DNC continues to show its true colors as controversies continue to unfold.
It was in the evening on 7/25 when stories began to break about the arrest of former Debbie Wasserman-Schultz IT aide Imran Awan. He and his family have been in the spotlight lately as more and more questions seems to arise about this man’s relationship with the DNC. Imran was officially arrested for a few counts of bank fraud as he applied for a $165,000 loan to buy a rental home he already owned.
However, there is a multitude of information about Imran and his family that should be concerning to every American. It is believed that Imran was at the center of a massive Pakistani/Muslim Brotherhood spy ring involving the DNC allowing operatives to take refuge in the country under the name of Awan. The reason for the DNC allowing the “Awans” to live in the United States, on huge salaries no doubt, was in order to spy on their enemies in Congress, the Republicans.
Imran Awan’s connections to the DNC are startling given his foreign citizenship background.
The Awan’s were staffed by the Democrats as IT administrators and thus had access to sit on meetings, review Congressional laptops, secret clearance access, as well as access to military personnel files and laptops. Democrats then made the Awans IT administrators so they would have even more access to subcommittees that the Democrats did not out right control and could then spy on their opponents. This is extremely troubling as these unvetted foreign nationals were given access to top personnel and files all so the Democrats could cheat.
The Awans were basically the DNC’s own intelligence community as they were able to collect whatever information about the United States they wanted, all while the Democrats were able to track, spy, or even steal information from Republicans.
The Democrats gave the Awans top secret access to the Democrats House Servers, meaning they would have network access to upcoming military actions and raids. Foreign nationals were funneled into the country to hack and spy while they gained top secret access to upcoming military actions, this sounds like it is out of a Tom Clancey book but unfortunately it is not.
The Awans were overpaid for their work as it was reported that each of them makes around $160,000 a year. However, they were on multiple staffs for Democratic Congressmen as well as originally starting for Wasserman-Schultz. The peak of what they were paid is hard to describe but reports from their job performance have them listed as unresponsive, lazy, and out right rude.
They would be scheduled to help someone with their laptop, that is their official job by the way, but would never show up or help those who needed it. Why would a group of Pakistani IT administrators be so grossly overpaid while failing to do their work for so many members of the DNC?
A handy list of 30 DNC Elected Representatives who paid the Awans hundreds of thousands of dollars for years of “work.”
The plot continues to thicken as reports of missing important meetings, scheduled appointments, and using a computer that was transferring data off-site had many actual staffers worried about their co-workers. There was then a massive data breach where Congress’ files were compromised as well as DNC/RNC emails becoming vulnerable. This is when many of the Awans fled back to Pakistan as it was believed that they achieved their goal.
Imran stayed for unknown reasons and even though he was banned from Capitol grounds he was seen wandering around the complex. It was around that same time that the Capitol Police found a laptop hidden away in an abandoned office. However, according to DC law, the authorities have been unable to actually examine the computer. The Police chief of DC was even threatened by Wasserman-Schultz to hand the laptop back over or face consequences, an act of blatant guilt should not go unpunished as well as threatening an officer of the law.
Imran then quickly scurried out of his house and rented to a military family. The marine who moved in was doing some maintenance when he discovered a trove of smashed hard drives, laptops, routers, and a lot of brand new expensive toner ink. His identity is to remain hidden so as to protect both he and his wife’s military careers but he did immediately call the proper authorities who seized all of the evidence. Before the authorities could get there though, Imran tried to force his way into the house with threats of a lawsuit for theft but the marine held firm and did not give him access to the house.
The former IT aide of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Imran Awan, has been arrested and put on house arrest. The DNC continues to plummet downward.
Imran Awan has since been arrested by the FBI trying to flee the country to Qatar at Dulles Airport on 7/24, after a $300,000 transfer to Pakistan. He was brought in for charges of bank fraud as mentioned earlier in the article but in what must have been the quickest federal processing facility in the United States, he was released around 10:00 pm on 7/25. He was given a strict curfew as well as a gps monitoring device that tracks his movements.
He has a court date scheduled less than a month away on 8/21 but it would probably be a miracle if he made it to court without the sudden need to commit suicide with two shots to the back of his head. The big facts here are foreign nationals had their visas expedited through the system and were given top secret security access to House servers and personnel, both extremely hard to get for foreign nationals, let alone Pakistani citizens. The only person who could have given them top secret access with the wave of a hand was then Head of the Congressional Intelligence Committee, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
As a final note, it should please every American to know that Imran’s attorney stated that they are only going after him because he is Muslim. Not the multitude of suspicious activity as well as long connections to terrorists and deep state officials, but the fact that he is Muslim. A pathetic excuse to bog down the mainstream media with talking points about Muslim prosecution.
FBI SEIZED SMASHED HARD DRIVES FROM WASSERMAN SCHULTZ IT AIDE’S HOME
July 24, 2017 by Luke Rosiak
FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.
Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.
Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.
Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imran’s best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.
There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said in March that the Capitol Police are “getting the kind of technical assistance they need to do that. This is under an active criminal investigation, their capabilities are pretty strong but, they’re also able to go and get the kind of help they need from other sources.”
The brothers’ stepmother independently filed court documents in Virginia accusing the brothers of wiretapping and extorting her.
Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, his two brothers and two of their wives — plus Abbas and another friend — began appearing as IT staffers on the payrolls of other House Democrats. Collectively, the Awan group has been paid $4 million since 2009.
Fellow IT staffers TheDCNF interviewed said the Awans were often absent from weekly meetings and email exchanges. One of the fellow staffers said some of the computers the Awans managed were being used to transfer data to an off-site server.
Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.
One of the new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”
The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and, not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.
“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”
Wasserman Schultz resigned as DNC chief in July 2016 after the committee’s IT system was hacked. She has since refused to fire Imran despite learning that he is a target of a criminal investigation.
The Marine said Imran wanted the hard drives back so desperately that he threatened to sue the renter for stealing them.
“It was unbelievable. I don’t know where they get off thinking they’re going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto,” he said.
Imran came to the house for the items “three to four times,” but the Marine wouldn’t let him enter.
“Their lawyer contacted us today via email and said we owed $350 in late charges and the items he left in the house,” the Marine said.
The Marine heard about the House investigation on the radio, and by that time, he had noticed other bizarre signs of desperation from his landlord.
“When we first moved in, a mailman came with certified mail from the House of Representatives. We were trying to be nice and signed for it. They lost their shit, saying ‘why did you sign for it, this is illegal!’ It was certified from the [Chief Administrative Officer of the House],” he said.
“The postman came a second time with a certified letter and I called Imran on the spot, asking ‘what do you want me to do.’ He said ‘just send him away, I’m homeless.’ They refused to forward their mail.”
Imran’s brother Abid has also been evasive about his location, failing to provide an accurate address for delivery of court materials in a lawsuit in which he is accused of defrauding the brothers’ stepmother. Imran’s wife, Hina, has traveled to Pakistan since the probe was revealed, according to neighbors.
Wasserman Schultz has demanded return of a laptop seized by the Capitol Police because it was purportedly used by Imran and was found hidden in a vacant office. The Florida Democrat used a Capitol Police budget hearing to threaten “consequences” for them if the laptop wasn’t returned.
On Thursday it was reported that police have not examined its contents because of the invocation of the Constitution’s “Speech and Debate clause,” and after months of refusal, her lawyer is now “negotiating” access to the data on yet-to-be-determined terms.
Members have been unusually mum about the apparent cybersecurity breach, especially given the pattern of cyberattacks on other government and political institutions.
The Marine expressed disgust with the muted reaction, saying “I served in the Marine Corps for 14 years; if I downloaded files to an offsite server, I’m going to prison for a lot of years.”
He implied he’s a Democrat but said when it comes to national security “political ideology doesn’t matter.”
He believes “there’s no way they could get this far without help” from some of the Democratic members of Congress for whom the brothers worked. Other Democrats have ignored a major security breach because it could look like a “black eye” in that they failed to vet the Pakistanis, he said.
“He’s dangerous. This is a crime syndicate that has successfully infiltrated Congress,” he said.
“If Donald Trump and the Republicans had hired foreign nationals to be their top IT guys and somehow their congressional files had been compromised, this would have been all over the news,” he continued.
A Bureau spokesman said the “FBI does not have anything to provide on this and I will still have to refer you to [Capitol Police] for any public comment.”

NEBRASKA DEM. OFFICIAL ON SCALISE: ‘I’M GLAD HE GOT SHOT … I WISH HE WAS F*CKING DEAD’
June 23, 2017 by Tyler O'Neil

The Nebraska Democratic Party fired an official on Thursday after his remarks about last week’s shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise (R-La.) went public. The staffer was recorded saying he was glad Scalise got shot and wished the congressman had died.
“His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to f*cking kick people off f*cking health care. I’m f*cking glad he got shot,” Phil Montag, volunteer co-chairman of the Democratic Party’s technology committee, said during a private meeting, Fox 42 reported. “I’m not going to f*cking say that in public.”
The comments came in a meeting with the Democratic Party’s Black Caucus chairwoman, Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, and a friend of hers, Destin Madison, the Associated Press reported. Montag later added, “I wish he was f*cking dead.”
Madison told Montag on the tape that he had secretly recorded the conversation and planned to publicize them...(Read More...)
For Democrats free speech has morphed into hate speech. Hate speech has morphed into violence and mayhem in the streets and on college campuses across America. Hate speech then morphed into action. Action became a politically motivated mass shooting at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia with five wounded and the shooter dead. Among those critically wounded was Steve Scalise, the Republican majority whip of the House of Representatives. Hodgkinson’s targets: Republicans, their families, children and supporters.All of this carried out by armed Democrat James T. Hodgkinson who specifically targeted unarmed Republicans, their families, children and supporters.
The narrative from Democrats is two fold. Deny this act of pure hate was politically motivated. Point to anything other than the individual who carried out this crime against humanity, i.e. focus on the gun. The proper responses to what James T. Hodgkinson, with malice and forethought, did are blame the shooter for the shooting, the terrorist for terrorism.
Democrats are relentlessly yelling “fire” in a crowed political theater. The predictable result is assassination for political purposes.
BREAKING: Dems Secret Meeting EXPOSED – Media Cover-Up CONFIRMED
The Democrats are dedicated to completely demonizing Russia. In their eyes, Russia is the evil power that broke international law in order to help get Trump elected president. However, not too long ago, Democrats were very happy to work with Russia.
Back in 2015, 30 Senate Democrats met secretly with Russian and Chinese officials in order to hash out Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and quell concerns about it. The meeting apparently took place near Capitol Hill, and involved the Russian ambassador, via Daily Wire.
Such a meeting is far more tantalizing (in terms of backroom deals) than anything Attorney General Jeff Sessions or Jared Kushner have been accused of doing.
Put simply, the Democrats are the pot calling the kettle black.
Their background machinations wound up producing the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, which not only gave the terrorist regime millions of dollars, but also dropped charges, and did prisoner swaps involving Iranian arms dealers and criminals, via Politico.
Oh, by the way — Obama loyalist are still keeping some unclassified documents regarding the Iran deal secret, via Weekly Standard.
In 2015, Barack Obama (and other Democrats) willingly endangered American security by signing away millions of dollars to a government that gave up nothing in return. This same government is also responsible for thousands of American deaths, whether through their own special forces, or through their proxies, like Hezbollah.
Compare this with the accusation that Trump’s administration worked secretly with Russia. Even the wildest conspiracy theories say the sole aim of working with Russia would be to put an end to the Syrian Civil War.
Team Obama laid the groundwork for a civil war in the Middle East, between Tehran and Riyadh.
Team Trump may have laid the groundwork for peace in Syria.
There’s a big difference between these two, and this is exactly why we elected Donald Trump last year.
The most annoying aspect of the undying Trump-Russia conspiracy theory is its adaptability. When no evidence surfaced that proved direct collusion, Democrats moved on to accusing President Trump of obstructing the completely bogus investigation (which he has the power to terminate).
Democrats have gone on record to threaten President Trump with impeachment proceedings if he fires Robert Mueller, the special counsel charged with investigating Russian “interference,” via Breitbart.
The Democrats got their way for eight years, thanks to a compliant media. This wound up creating the Iran deal.
Now, the Democrats are a vocal minority, and they’re trying to bully the majority into submission. We cannot let that happen.
Democrat Maxine Waters Has Shown Up To Only 10% Of Congressional Meetings For 35 YEARS
POSTED BY: SAM DI GANGI
7 JUNE 2017
Maxine Waters (D-CA) is one of the most unpleasant people to ever hold be a public servant. She is always, angry, something that she wears as a badge of honor. She has pushed the lie about President Trump having Russian connections and has even had to admit that no facts exists to condemn the White House for.
Now the demented Democrat is looking even more foolish since an observant Reddit user known as 1tch has taken the time to gather the facts together showing that “Over Her 35 Years In Congress Maxine Waters Has Missed 90% Of Congressional Meetings.”
Known in some circles as “the Poverty Pimp,” Waters has been peddling race baiting, socialist agenda’s, and a hatred for President that borders is obsessive, she has accomplished very little in her career.
Even today, she finds herself above impeachment and was so terribly rude to one of her own constituents that watching the video of it is cringe worthy, to say the least.
On top of that, she seems to imply that as a woman of color, she can not be thrown out of office.
While the word “color” may have been been “Congress” since she mumbles more than speaks, it is clear that race over substance matters is the Waters credo.
Then again, when one attends only 10% of the meetings that are expected of them, there is not much other than skin color for her to drivel on about. She has not real record to run on, only that she is a minority.
Thankfully, even other minorities are running against her and some of them have gathered outside her million dollar estate to show her their displeasure with her service.
Still, America was well aware that Waters is nothing but a loud but unproductive member of the swamp, we just never knew how little time she spent there.
Come to think of it, considering her views, it may, in fact, be better if she spent even less time there!
