California Burger Flippers Who Complained About Wage Horrified At What They Showed Up To Next Day
By Liberty Belle
Over the last several years, the left has been screeching about a $15 minimum wage hike across the country. These entitled leftists claim that the current minimum wage is just too low for entry-level positions and that they deserve more for their skills or lack thereof. No matter how many times people attempt to explain how the wage system works, it seems to elude their simple minds. States around the country have buckled to the pressure by raising their wage, and are now witnessing the disastrous results. Now workers in California are on the receiving end of bad news after what just showed up in their state to take their jobs.
People really should think long hard about what they want before asking, because more often than not it will not turn out the way you think it should. A prime example of that is the “Fight for $15” group. These economically-challenged individuals have created quite the stink about their meager entry-level job wage. These young socialists under the tutelage of Bernie Sanders believe that they should be paid 15 buckaroos an hour for flipping burgers and folding t-shirts in the mall. Unfortunately, California and Seattle have implemented this wage hike, and now job seekers realize they chose poorly.
The Washington Post reported earlier this year that researchers from the University of Washington found that critics were right along about the minimum wage hike. The Post even went as far as to say that the results were bad news for leftists, but even worse news for low-skilled workers.
According to Reason:
The study finds that when wages were increased to $13, employers cut hours by 9 percent. That means that low-skilled workers saw their monthly compensation decrease by an average of $125.
Studies that downplay the effects of minimum wage hikes have mostly focused on teenagers and fast food workers. But the study at the University of Washington paper looks at the impact on workers spanning all ages and all demographics.The findings may surprise progressives who believe that the only limit to higher pay for workers is the greed and selfishness of business owners. But it doesn’t come as a surprise to those who remain unconvinced that the law of supply and demand can be amended by city councils. Labor is simply another cost for any business, and when the price of something goes up, we tend to buy less of it.
Another takeaway from the study is that if you want to raise the income of low-skilled workers, taxpayers should pay for that burden through direct cash payments or other forms of welfare. Offloading the cost to employers has unintended consequences, even though it’s a lot easier to demonize business owners for being greedy cheapskates than to build a consensus around raising taxes.
The lesson from Seattle that all cities should pay attention to is that forcing business to pay more hurts the very people minimum wage hikes are supposed to help. That such ordinances are usually passed in the name of low-income, low-skilled workers only make that reality all the worse.
Now, California workers are realizing the same error of their ways with the introduction of “Flippy” the robotic kitchen assistant. “Flippy” is the creation of Miso Robotics, an engineering firm specializing in “adaptable robotics” for commercial kitchens. The goal of Miso is to develop the technology to that is able to handle tedious tasks such as burger flipping, frying chicken, cutting vegetables, and even plate presentation. So in other words, all those minimum wage restaurant jobs that these protesters want $15 an hour for can easily be replaced.
And, if these workers think that this concept is not immediate they would be wrong. In fact, “Flippy” just won its first contract with CaliBurger who is planning to roll out with this machine in all its 50 global locations.
Here is more from Nation’s Restaurant News:
“The application of artificial intelligence to robotic systems that work next to our employees in CaliBurger restaurants will allow us to make food faster, safer and with fewer errors,” said Miller. “Our investment in Miso Robotics is part of our broader vision for creating a unified operating system that will control all aspects of a restaurant, from in-store interactive gaming entertainment, to automated ordering and cooking processes, ‘intelligent’ food delivery and real-time detection of operating errors and pathogens.”
The chain declined to reveal the cost of Flippy, saying Miso Robotics is working with customers to determine the best pricing model.
“The price will be in line with the productivity benefits Flippy provides to restaurant owners,” said a spokesperson.
Here is Flippy in action, and he looks like he has his job down pat.
This is what happens when you bite the hand that feeds you. These are jobs are called “entry level positions” since they are not meant to be a lifetime goal. If they want $15 or more an hour, they need to get the skills to make that reality. However, if these liberals push businesses to pay them more than what they are worth well, companies will find another way and looks like they just did.

Google Issues Final Warning To Conservative Website, Remove “Hateful” Article OR ELSE
Posted by Sam Di Gangi | Sep 1, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
The Liberty Conservative is seeing unfair treatment because they are conservative in nature.
For quite some time now, “GoolgeTube” (since Google bought and promptly ruined YouTube) has demonized and demonetized conservative channels. Many creators (including this author, for a firsthand account) have released hundreds of videos that have zero offensive content, yet because God or libertarianism is spoken of, that is grounds for unfair treatment from Google.
Shane Trejo, media relations director of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Michigan, has just seen the same abuse as “Google sent a [his] conservative website an ultimatum: remove one of your articles, or lose the ability to make ad revenue on your website” on Tuesday, PJ Media reports.
Though none of the content was offensive to anyone but a raging leftist in an ANTIFA mask, more unwarranted threats came from the internet giant who also wrote that this bullying was “just an example and that the same violations may exist on other pages of this website.”
This is where any self-respecting site would, in terms that WOULD be offensive, tell Google where to go and exactly how to get there! However, with the power that Google holds over the internet, many are terrified to do so.
“Yesterday morning, we received a very bizarre letter from Google issuing us an ultimatum,” admitted the director. “Either we were to remove a particular article or see all of our ad revenues choked off in an instant. This is the newest method that Big Brother is using to enforce thought control.”
THIS IS 21st THE 21st CENTURY VERSION OF BOOK BURNING! Never could it be imagined that almost half of the people in the country (conservatives are roughly 50% of the population) could be denied the right to speak or write freely and virtually NO ONE would care. Where is the anger? Are we that dumbed down and apathetic that we can’t see this happening to our nation?
Google is using their “ad placement service AdSense” like the mafia and already, commentators like Mark Dice, Luke Rodowski (We Are Change), Infowars, The Correct Views, and even Diamond and Silk have seen this kind of prejudice against their free speech rights.
“As stated in our program policies, Google ads may not be placed on pages that contain content that: Threatens or advocates harm on oneself or others; Harasses, intimidates or bullies an individual or group of individuals; Incites hatred against, promotes discrimination of, or disparages an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization,” says Google in a statement (some parts emboldened for emphasis and study).
We really live in an age where supporting the president is enough to get one’s site shut down.
However, let us look at this. Stopping hate seems rational, right? No, for that is but wordplay and nothing more. “Hatred,” as listed above, is now defined by the platform and other social justice warriors as anything that isn’t leftist or that promotes a point of view that goes against liberalism, that’s it.
As for “disparaging” content, that would imply that Christians, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, and others could not promote, for example, an opposition to gay marriage. First of all, “disparaging” comments are protected by the First Amendment and second of all, only Christians (and some conservative Jews) are facing this abuse. Muslims can talk about throwing gays from rooftops and they get a free pass from Google.
Since there really is no “systematic discrimination” in the age of endless parades of hip-hop stars, sports heroes, news commentators, and even a two term president who are/were a minority, this whole section is pointless. People are judged by their merit in America, nottheir color, but the left and Google needs to pretend otherwise to further their agenda.
The Liberty Conservative was told to remove all offending content and “modify or remove the violating content to meet our AdSense policies” in order to get paid from ads (which in cases where the content was already viewed is already owed).
Google closed with the treat “Please be aware that if additional violations are accrued, ad serving may be disabled to the website listed above. Please be aware that the URL above is just an example and that the same violations may exist on other pages of this website or other sites that you own.”
If anti-trust laws are not used to stop Google from abusing their platform, the internet as we know it is over.
The Liberty Conservative said that their work proudly “contained no offensive content” and that their article “was merely distinguishing the many differences between the alt-right and literal Nazis.” So explaining facts is now “hateful” or “disparaging” to Google?
Worst of all, the site may have to comply “for the time being” with Google’s demands while other avenues are sought to get the word out.
Meanwhile, America (even liberals, because it can happen to you when they are done crucifying conservatives, remember) needs to see what is happening and then move to put an immediate halt to it. If not, then not only will libertarians and those similar not be allowed to speak, but only those who cow tail to the growing one world agendas guidelines will get to say anything at all.
Judicial Watch Confirms: Police Chief Met Secretly With Leftist Group, ‘Illegal’ Order Carried Out Weeks Later
POSTED BY: ALLISON HILLMAN
22 AUGUST 2017
Last month watchdog group Judicial Watch went after the reasons behind Phoenix Police Department new immigration procedures. In their quest, they have uncovered that an ACLU-backed group known as People Power likely issued the order to make Phoenix a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.
The investigation has revealed a very interesting timeline. People Power tried to meet with Phoenix’s new Police Chief Jeri Williams on April 19, 2017. It remains unclear if that meeting ever took place at that moment however, Judicial Watch believes it did not because of what happened next.
Will Goana, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona, inserted himself into the discussion, likely called in by People Power. He and Chief Williams met behind closed doors just weeks before the stunning changes to department policy.
A small portion of the ridiculous new policies implemented by Phoenix Police Department.
On May 16, People Power requested a meeting with Chief Williams yet again which they were granted on June 9. On June 29, the ACLU, the chief, and People Power all got together to discuss the changes according to records.
The new policy states that police officers may not contact federal officials such as ICE when they arrest an illegal immigrant. They cannot ask a suspect what their immigration status is. Officers are not even allowed to use the term illegal alien and must now say “unlawfully present.”
These directions of course, directly violate federal laws under President Trump. Which is exactly what People Power was created to do. The group was started by the ACLU as a response to the “Trump administration’s attacks on civil liberties and civil rights.” Their demands on local law enforcement and governments are clear;

BOMBSHELL! Israeli intelligence has intercepted emails between Trump Adviser HR McMaster and George Soros, briefing all White House activities
BY THOMAS MADISON
AUGUST 14, 2017
UPDATE: I have had many negative comments on this story because I am sourcing Infowars. Admittedly, Alex Jones can be a bit out there. He has also broken many big stories.
Notwithstanding the fact that this incredible claim comes to us via Infowars, the true source is Roger Stone, a long-time Trump staffer who I have never known to lie.
Could it be fake? Yep. I am simply reporting it, and I am reporting it because it comes from Roger Stone, who I consider credible, and three independent sources, not because it comes from Infowars, which I rarely source.
I do wish Stone would have found a better studio than a seedy motel, though. Oh, well, I guess we will have to take it as we can get it.
Does President Trump know about this? If he does, why isn’t McMaster in handcuffs right now?
National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is an active operative of globalist billionaire George Soros, according to three separate domestic and foreign intelligence sources, according to former Trump staffer and Infowars correspondent Roger Stone.
McMaster is a foreign intelligence agent for the multi-national combine controlled by Soros, which explains why he’s constantly running interference to President Trump’s agenda.
“I have confirmed from sources from inside the White House, the Israeli government and Israeli intelligence that the Israelis have intercepted email communications from General McMaster to George Soros, informing him of everything that’s going on inside the White House,” reported Infowars correspondent Roger Stone. “…I have double checked this with two different sources very high up in Israeli intelligence, and I actually expect the Israeli ambassador to the US to confirm this.”
This means, by implication, that McMaster is one of the primary leakers given that Soros has vast ties to the mainstream media.
It is already known that McMaster was a member of International Institute for Strategic Studies which was funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundation and another Soros-financed group.
Also, last month Israel publicly accused Soros of continuously undermining democratically-elected governments.
Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs took the opportunity to criticize Soros when it spoke out against the vandalism of anti-Soros posters in Hungary which were defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti.
“Israel deplores any expression of anti-Semitism in any country and stands with Jewish communities everywhere in confronting this hatred,” statedForeign Affairs Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon. “In no way was the statement meant to delegitimize criticism of George Soros, who continuously undermines Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself.”
Soros began infiltrating the National Security Council as early as May when his operative Fiona Hill, a member of the the Council on Foreign Relations and the Soros-funded Eurasia Foundation, joined its staff.
“George Soros has penetrated the Trump White House,” Stone reported. “Soros has planted a mole infiltrating the National Security apparatus: a woman named Fiona Hill, who has a Harvard background, and has been on the Soros payroll and the payroll of the Open Society Institute.”
Hill had previously helped the Soros-founded Central European University in Hungary which has tried to influence the Hungarian government which has defiantly refused EU migrant quotas and Soros’ meddling in its affairs.
“We got unequivocal support [from Fiona Hill’s team at the National Security Council],” said CEU’s rector Michael Ignatieff. “I went up on the Hill and spoke to Republican senators and staff.”
“There is a tiny ledge of commonality between Republicans and Democrats, and academic freedom is one issue that unites them both.”
But it’s unlikely that “academic freedom” exists at CEU since it was founded by Soros, a globalist socialist well-known for bankrolling institutions that promote his political agenda – and it’s also no secret that academic institutions are routinely used to steer government policies as part of the interconnected, globalist network of academia, technology, government and media.
David Horowitz: Charlottesville Is Biggest 'Fake News' Story of Summer(AP)
By David Horowitz | Wednesday, 16 Aug 2017 01:37 PM
Editor's Note: David Horowitz is the author of the runaway New York Times best-seller "Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America." His book first predicted the anti-Trump left would use race to divide America and undermine the Trump presidency. His op-ed for Newsmax appears below. Get more info on "Big Agenda" — Go Here Now.
The tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia, could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation toward civil war.
Instead, the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.
The organizers of the "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists.
But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or, presumably, anyone else.
They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU.
If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit?
Who knows what — if anything — would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.
What "Unite the Right" actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates, and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the "Alt-Right" is actually a negligible group.
This supposed national show of strength actually attracted all of 500 people.
Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshaled by two violent groups of the left — Black Lives Matter and Antifa — and you get an idea of how marginal "white supremacists" are to America's political and cultural life.
Yet "white supremacy" and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports.
Talk about virtue signaling!
Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent left-wing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.
Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not apply for permits, which would have been denied since there was another demonstration scheduled for that park on that day.
But why should they have applied for a permit, since the mayhem they had previously caused in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland, and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as "protests," and their rioting went completely unpunished.
In other words, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville — a legal protest by "Unite the Right" and an illegal protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life.
Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable.
Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Donald Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.
What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy — "white supremacy" — which is really a war on white people generally.
The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is "identity politics" — the idea that the world consists of two groups — "people of color" who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors.
This is the real race war.
Its noxious themes inform the mindless, hysterical hatred of President Trump, and the equally mindless support of racist mobs like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
It is a war from which no good can come. But it won’t be stopped unless enough people have the courage to stand up and name it for what it is.

Mike Pence Said Something About Charlottesville That Will Leave You Speechless
A riot in Charlottesville turned deadly over the weekend when one woman was tragically killed.
Donald Trump quickly condemned the violence but the media spent days lying about his comments.
Then Vice President Mike Pence said something that left everyone speechless.
The protests in Charlottesville turned deadly when white supremacists clashed with left-wing anti-fa demonstrators.
One of the white supremacists plowed his car into a crowd of people and killed an innocent woman.
Trump condemned the attacks and said violence has no place in America.
Trump also noted that violence has been happening on many sides.
Black Lives Matter and anti-fa have turned protests into violent rallies.
And a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to assassinate Republican members of Congress.
But the media focused more on Trump’s remarks than the horrible tragic death that occurred.
Vice President Pence blasted the hatred on display and called out the perpetrators.
But he also ripped the media for their focus on Trump’s remarks and their dishonest coverage.
Pence’s comments about the media also speak to a larger point.
The media and the left took the opportunity to use a protest by a small, fringe group of white supremacists to somehow be speaking for Donald Trump’s base of 63 million people.
But when groups the media sympathizes with engage in violence, they take care to note it was just an isolated incident.
Trump spoke out against the violence and hatred.
The media pitched a fit because they didn’t like what he said, but Vice President Pence was correct to note Trump rejected violence and bigotry while trying to unite the nation around eradicating the problem of political violence on all sides.
Report: H.R. McMaster Fired National Security Council Official for Penning Memo on Globalists
SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images
by KRISTINA WONG
2 Aug 2017
Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in the NSC’s strategic-planning office as a director for strategic planning was fired on July 21, The Atlantic first reported.
The memo, written in late May, described threats to the administration by globalists, bankers, the “deep state,” and Islamists.
“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” it said.
Higgins was called into the White House counsel’s office two weeks ago and asked about the memo. Later that week, he was told by McMaster’s deputy that he was losing his job.
The memo compared what the Trump administration was facing to a Maoist insurgency.
“In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power,” the memo said. “Functioning as a hostile complete state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the ‘counter-state.’”
“Because the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national, and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives … These attack narratives are pervasive, full spectrum, and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies,” it said.
Sources told The Atlantic that Higgins had also pushed to declassify documents having to do with radical Islam and Iran, including Presidential Study Directive 11, produced by the Obama administration before the Arab Spring outlining unrest throughout the Middle East.
The report said the memo outlined many of the same ideas he laid out in an interview with the Daily Caller last year. In the interview, he said political warfare includes non-violent and violent actions working in synthesis.
He said the left, working with enemy-friendly Muslim Brotherhood allies, is able to control the dominant cultural narrative with the media and the government, blinding Americans in the war on terror and influencing how they think, according to its report.
McMaster also recently removed Derek Harvey, the senior director for the Middle East. Before his removal, Harvey reportedly produced a list of NSC holdovers and presented it to McMaster, who declined to fire them, the report said.
McMaster has particularly sparred with other members of the administration on an Afghanistan plan with an increase of 3,000 to 5,000 U.S. troops there. Defense Secretary James Mattis reportedly did not support the plan.
Excepts from the Higgins memo:
Through the campaign, candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and slipping away. Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed. … Islamists ally with cultural Marxists because, as far back as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the left has a strong chance of reducing Western civilization to its benefit. Having co-opted post-modern narratives as critical points, Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety at some future point. (NOTE! Communist take over of Russian revolution against the Czars, N Vietnamese against the South, Maoists against the democratic forces against the Chinese dynasty.)
POLITICAL WARFARE ATTACKS—a primer
As used here, “political warfare’ does not concern activities associated with the American political process but rather exclusively refers to political warfare as understood by the Maoist insurgency model. Political warfare is one of the five components of a Maoist insurgency. Maoist methodologies are described as synchronized violent and non-violent actions. This approach envisions the direct use of non-violent operations arts and tactics as elements of combat power In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power. Functioning as a hostile compete state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the “counter-state.” Political warfare uses non-violent methods such as participation that undermines the morale or offers to engage in discussions, as a adjunct to violence. Political warfare methods can be implemented at strategic, operations, or tactical levels of operation.
Political warfare is warfare. Strategic information campaigns designed to delegitimize through disinformation arise out of non-violent lines of effort in political warfare regimes. They run on multiple lines of operation, support the larger non-violent line of effort, are coordinated with violent lines of effort, and execute political warfare agenda promoting cultural Marxist outcomes. They principally operate through narratives. Because the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives … These attacks narratives are pervasive, full spectrum and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies …
Political Warfare has been described as “propaganda in battledress.”
BREAKING: Unmasking Investigation Expands As Officials Uncover Obama Admin. Secret
Posted by Anthony Cesario |
Aug 2, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
Ben Rhodes, a top Obama aide, is currently being investigated for his involvement in the unmasking of U.S. citizens that took place earlier this year (pictured above).
The authoritarian left is determined to undermine President Donald Trump. Not only are they spreading massive amounts of misinformation online, they also appear to be working with U.S. intelligence agencies to illegally spy on Trump and his associates and unlawfully sabotage his campaign and subsequent presidency.
Thankfully, many of the people allegedly involved in such misconduct are being investigated by Congress. Just recently, Ben Rhodes, a top Obama aide, was added to the list of suspects.
Ben Rhodes, the Deputy National Security Adviser under former President Barack Obama.
According to reports, Rhodes, who worked as a Deputy National Security Adviser under former President Barack Obama, is a currently being investigated as a “person of interest” by the House Intelligence Committee. They believe he may have participated in the unmasking of United States citizens and subsequent leaking of their names.
Specifically, congressional sources recently told reporters that Devin Nunes (R-CA), the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, sent a letter to Dan Coats, the Director of the National Security Agency (NSA), earlier this week asking him to send over the number of unmasking requests Rhodes made from January 1st to January 20th by August 21st. His request comes shortly after committee members met with Rhodes in D.C. to discussRussia’s interference in the 2016 election as well as his role in the recent unmasking and leaking that has been going on.
Devin Nunes (R-Ca), the House Intelligence Committee Chairman.
In the letter, Nunes explained that the committee has “found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.” This means that it’s possible for people working in the intelligence community to use classified information, like the names of people under government surveillance, to further their political agenda.
Nunes is not the only one suspicious of Rhodes. Earlier this year, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, toldreporters that he’s convinced Rhodes is guilty of leaking and believes Congress should launch an investigation and hold him accountable for his actions. “I believe [Rhodes is] in touch with people on the National Security Council. It would be absolutely legitimate as part of leak investigation to bring him in and put him under oath, and I would absolutely support doing that,” stated DeSantis.
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
“I think Congress and some members on the Intelligence Committee can call Ben Rhodes to testify,” he continued, noting, “he may be able to invoke executive privilege from when Obama was president, but he definitely can’t do that in any interactions he’s had since then.”
The mistrust that people like Nunes and DeSantis have towards Rhodes is understandable. While he was employed at the White House, he worked closely with Susan Rice, the National Security Adviser at the time. This is problematic because it was recently revealed that she repeatedly asked for U.S. citizens associated with the Trump campaign to be “unmasked,” prompting a federal investigation.
The practice of “masking” and “unmasking” helps protect the privacy of U.S. citizens. “Masking” refers to the redaction of personal information. This is something that’s done every time a U.S. citizen is discussed or picked up during U.S. surveillance. “Unmasking” refers to the revealing of redacted information and must only be done for matters related to national security.
Unmasking is also not easy. “It’s like hell and high water to fill out and gain approval for these types of unmaskings. It’s something analysts take seriously and could entail filling out 80 pages of paperwork to prove there is a need to unmask,” explained an intelligence source with direct knowledge of the type of requests made by the Obama aides. “If top officials were unmasking without oversight it’s something everyone should be concerned about and it puts our intelligence community in a very bad place,” he added.
Violating the privacy of other people must not be tolerated. Those responsible for the unmasking and leaking of U.S. officials need to be held accountable for their actions and punished as harshly as possible. Doing so will hopefully deter people from engaging in similar misconduct in the future.
Bill Clinton’s Connection To This Arrest Is Raising Eyebrows Everywhere
A high level Democrat Congressional staffer was just arrested by the FBI trying to flee the country to Pakistan.
He was at the center of an investigation into a sensitive data breach where information from critical House Committees had been stolen.
Now his ties to Bill Clinton are leading everyone to ask disturbing questions.
Imran Awan was arrested by the FBI on bank fraud while trying to flee to Pakistan after wiring nearly $300,000 to his homeland.
Awan is linked to individuals with ties to Hezbollah, and some critics believe he is also linked to foreign intelligence services.
The new tenant at the property Awan rented out also discovered smashed lap tops and computer equipment which led many to believe he was covering up stolen data and who it was sent to.
When Awan was arrested, attorney Chris Gowen immediately stepped forward to defend him by claiming Awan was the victim of right-wing hate.
Gowen’s close associations with Bill and Hillary Clinton – as well as the Clinton Foundation – quickly raised eyebrows across Washington.
Jordan Schactel wrote at Conservative Review:
“After Awan’s arrest, Gowen immediately jumped into the fray, alleging that Awan was a victim of Islamophobia. He labeled Awan’s arrest as part of “a right-wing media-driven prosecution by a United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim.”
His statement displays a remarkably similar tone to the one often promulgated by his former boss, Hillary Clinton, who often spoke of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” to undermine her family and her leftist ideals.
Gowen’s past includes several stints in the Clinton machine’s orbit. He began his legal life as a public defender but left that job for the Bill Clinton White House. At the time, he also worked for then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Years later, he jumped on board Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, directing advance operations there, according to his biography from his law firm, Gowen Rhoades Winograd & Silva, PLLC. In another bio page, Gowen states he has consulted with former Democratic presidential contenders John Kerry and John Edwards.
Another biography, from American University, says Gowen worked with several controversial Clinton projects, including The Clinton Global Initiative, The Clinton Foundation, and The Clinton Health Access Initiative.
In 2012, Gowen went to bat for Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, whose family is deeply connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. After GOP reps explored Abedin’s nefarious ties, Gowen pledged to “stand with Huma.”
Schactel wonders why Awan was hooked up with Gowen so quickly.
He noted that Awan worked for former Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was a key Clinton ally:
“Gowen’s Clinton connections are intriguing on another level, given that Awan’s employer in the House, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, remains a close Clinton confidant. The former Democratic National Committee chair resigned from her position after emails surfaced alleging she attempted to tip the scales of the Democratic primary in Clinton’s favor. Wasserman Schultz was also the 2008 campaign co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s first failed run for president.
It remains unclear at this time how Imran Awan managed to link up with Gowen and retain his services.”
Why did a Clinton-connected lawyer move so quickly to represent Awan?
That is one of the many disturbing questions in this growing scandal.
Another is why Wasserman Schultz stonewalled for months and blocked the Capitol Police from scanning a lap top they had in their possession.
Her conduct in that matter was similar to how the Democrat National Committee refused to let the authorities access their servers after claiming they’d been hacked by the Russians.
Both of these cases are leading many to wonder just what they are trying to hide.
A Clinton-connected lawyer jumping into the fray is only going to raise more questions.

American Pravda: CNN Producer Says Russia Narrative “bullsh*t"
JUST IN: Look Who President Trump Just Fired
September 21, 2017 Ben Baker
With Trump as President, many are looking to drain the swamp and eliminate corruption from Capitol Hill.
According to Washington Times, The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was able to drain some of the swamp yesterday. They fired VA Medical Director Brian Hawkins, saying he was booted for “failure to provide effective leadership.”
The VA stated they had the ability to fire Hawkins solely because Trump was president. They cited the VA Accountability Act created by Trump in June, which enabled them the authority to remove Hawkins from the department.
According to the VA, Hawkins’ dismissal is part of a renewed commitment to take care of their veterans by removing problem employees. “We at VA will use the authorities available to ensure our veterans get the highest quality service and care possible. This is the right decision for veterans in D.C. and employees at the medical center, and underscores our commitment to hold employees accountable if they fail to do their jobs or live up to VA’s values.”
This is the second time the VA fired Hawkins. According to Washington Examiner Hawkins was fired in early August because he was sending emails containing sensitive information about the department to his wife. He also allegedly had management problems, which caused him to be incapable of performing his leadership role.
The Washington Post reports that investigators revealed what they called the “highest levels of chaos” at the medical facility, saying there was nearly $150 million in medical supplies that had failed to be inventoried.
This failure to effectively manage supplies caused sterile surgical items to be kept in areas that hadn’t been sanitized, and nurses were struggling to find items needed in cases of emergency, such as oxygen tubes.
Yet the VA was forced to rehire Hawkins when he appealed to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), who required the rehire pending a review of the incident. VA Secretary David Shulkin said these types of workarounds and other laws make it nearly impossible to remove employees who prove to be corrupt or unproductive.
Shulkin vowed that he would not allow such individuals to work with the veterans, no matter what. “No judge who has never run a hospital and never cared for our nation’s Veterans will force me to put an employee back in a position when he allowed the facility to pose potential safety risks to our veterans. Protecting our veterans is my most important responsibility.”
Shulkin was forced to rehire Hawkins per orders from the MSPB, but true to his words, he ensured that Hawkins would not be permitted to be involved with the patients. In April, Hawkins was relocated to a different position within the department and his previous role of hospital director was given to retired Army Col. Lawrence Connell — until finally being able to fire Hawkins on Wednesday.
The VA Accountability Act was signed by Trump for issues such as these, according to Washington Times. Trump created the bill in response to the scandals that kept occurring under the VA during the Obama administration, such as veterans dying while they were waiting for negligent doctors.
According to Trump, “What happened was a national disgrace and yet some of the employees involved remained on the payrolls. Our veterans have fulfilled their duty to this nation, and now we must fulfill our duty to them.”
Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp has allowed the VA to remove an individual that proved dangerous to US veterans. Hopefully, his continued effort to follow through on his campaign promises will see other departments shedding their ineffective employees and improving the quality of care and services they provide to Americans.
MLK Jr., Margaret Sanger, And The Cure For Violence
Aug 27, 2017
Read More Articles by Rev David WhitneyThe sad human condition was on full display in Charlottesville last Saturday. It appears many who came to the rally and counter protest were prepared to engage in violent behavior. What we are told is that it is all about statues commemorating a tragic era of our history.
“All across the southern United States, sometimes in the dead of night, statues are falling. In the days since the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, over the fate of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, activists in Durham, North Carolina, have used ropes to tear down a statue of a Confederate soldier outside the city’s former courthouse; authorities in Baltimore moved in the early hours to take down the city’s Confederate monuments; and the mayor of Birmingham, Alabama, where state law prohibits the removal of a Confederate monument from a city park, ordered it covered up with plastic.” Yahoo.com
Video of the sermon
Supposedly these statues represent racism and the oppression of blacks in our country. But the ignorance of the protestors, journalists and politicians is stunning. The statues of Robert E. Lee, they claim, are racist – but they obviously don’t know his history. Lee emancipated slaves that came into his family by inheritance while the General he surrendered to at Appomattox, Ulysses S. Grant, had purchased a slave, and his wife inherited slaves that served his family during the war. Grant did emancipate the slave he purchased but not the slaves he inherited. So, the Southern General freed slaves while the Northern General’s family had slaves during the war. Then why aren’t they tearing down all the statues of Ulysses S. Grant? Ignorance of the mob, the press, and the academic institutions in our land has no end.
Consider the person who has done the most harm to blacks in our country; there is a prominent bust of this woman which still stands today in our National Portrait Gallery.
“The museum has the Margaret Sanger bust in their ‘Struggle for Justice’ exhibit, which is supposed to honor those of the past who were ‘champions of justice.’ A sign beneath the sculpture says that Sanger was “profoundly affected by the physical and mental toll exacted on women by frequent childbirth, miscarriage and self-induced abortion.”
A group of black pastors wrote the Smithsonian a letter explaining that Sanger was far from a champion for their race because of her strong ties to the eugenics movement. The black pastors, along with other pro-life advocates rallied outside the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery to demand the removal of the statue.
They say Sanger supported eugenics to rid the nation of those she deemed ‘defective’ and ‘feeble-minded’ by stopping the growth of their populations, particularly blacks and other minorities.
Officials at the Smithsonian have rejected the request, defending the inclusion of Sanger in their exhibit, describing her as someone who “fought to achieve civil rights for disenfranchised or marginalized groups.”
But the pastors say they will not be dissuaded, saying “Margaret Sanger was a racist who wanted to end the black population through birth control and abortion.”
With leftist protests demanding the removal of Confederate monuments across the country, where is the media and academia outcry against the bust of the Planned Parenthood founder?”
This was not the first time the demand was made of the taxpayer-funded Smithsonian. Back in 2015, “25 House Republicans campaigned to have [the] bust …removed from the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, where it has been included in an exhibit featuring American civil rights leaders, called ‘The Struggle for Justice,’ with Ted Cruz’s office issuing a press release explaining that she didn’t belong there for a number of reasons, the most damning of which is that as part of her ‘inhumane life’s work’ she ‘advocated for the extermination of African-Americans.’” It’s not the first time Sanger has faced this accusation. During this past primary season, Ben Carson proclaimed that Sanger “believed that people like me should be eliminated”—later clarifying, per PolitiFact, that he was “talking about the black race”—and in 2011, Herman Cain alleged that Sanger’s original goal for Planned Parenthood was to “help kill black babies before they came into the world.” That might sound outlandish until you read what she actually said.
Sanger infamously wrote in her book Woman, Morality, and Birth Control, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” (pg.12)
Could it be that she found just such a minister in Martin Luther King Jr.? “In 1966, Martin Luther King Jr. made clear that he agreed that Sanger’s life’s work was anything but inhumane. In 1966, when King received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award in Human Rights, he praised her contributions to the black community. ‘There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger’s early efforts,’ he said. ‘…Margaret Sanger had to commit what was then called a crime in order to enrich humanity, and today we honor her courage and vision.’” Time.com
Unless I’m mistaken, King is saying he was fully on board with Sanger’s eugenics agenda including her “Negro Project.”
Sanger wrote of the “cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks— those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization,” Apostle of Birth Control Sees Cause Gaining Here, The New York Times, 1923-04-08, p. XII. She also wrote that “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Chapter 5, “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.”
“A coalition of black pastors, which is led by prominent Bishop E. W. Jackson, sent a letter back in 2015 to Kim Sajet, director of the National Portrait Gallery. The letter read:
“Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies; an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as “the feeble minded;” of her speaking at rallies of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers. Also, the notorious “Negro Project” which sought to limit, if not eliminate, black births, was her brainchild. Despite these well-documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice. The obvious incongruity is staggering!…
Like Hitler, Sanger advocated eugenics – the extermination of people she deemed “undesirables.” Finding that the American people rejected that idea, she then switched to birth control as a way of controlling the population growth of black people and others,” DC Clothesline.
Margaret Sanger was a racist who founded Planned Parenthood for the purpose of black genocide. The “Nero Project” was her idea to eliminate the black population. Sanger has been wildly successful. More blacks are aborted in New York than born, according to the New York Dept. of Health. According to the CDC black women, although only 11% of the female population in America, have 36% of the abortions. More than 18 million black babies have been murdered in their own mother’s wombs. If those people were alive today the black population, in our land would be more than double what it currently is. Sanger’s Planned Parenthood has suppressed the black vote more effectively than poll taxes, literacy tests, voter ID requirements, and the Ku Klux Klan combined.
Sanger’s portraits and busts are revered in many places. Awards are given bearing her name. Gatherings are held yearly honoring her. Attended by many so-called leaders, politicians and prominent people.
But Sanger is not alone in creating this black genocide, former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black Justice on the Supreme Court, was radically pro-abortion, not only voting for Roe v. Wade, but even demanding public funding for what amounts to more black genocide. Now our airport in Maryland is named after him, and his statue still stands directly in front of the legislative buildings in our State’s Capital.
In the dead of night this past Monday, the Governor of Maryland had the statue of Supreme Court Justice Roger B. Taney removed from where he sat for 145 years because he authored the Dred Scott opinion. Yet they let stand the man responsible for the murder of 60 million babies, 18 million of which were black babies. There it is today, a statute of a black man who conducted black genocide. And no one is calling for it to be torn down. We are being deceived. What is taking place is using the stalking horse of racism to bring about a communist revolution by violent means. When we examine the roots of violence it is quite clear; man’s fallen condition tends to produce violence. Romans 3:23 sates, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Jesus Himself identified the parentage of unbelievers when they expressed their violent desire to kill him in John 8:42-45. “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.”
Violence lies and murder are all from the devil – these are the works of the devil. And we see that in Charlottesville, many came intending to inflict pain, intending to act violently. The President was right to place blame for the violence on both sides.
Jesus clearly stated that the children follow their father. John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The cure for violence in our land comes from the word of God which shows us the path of redemption. The heart of man is desperately wicked only Jesus Christ can transform that hatred into love and that violence into kindness.

BOMBSHELL: New evidence suggests Charlottesville was a complete SET-UP
By Derrick Wilburn
9:09am August 19, 2017
At least one law enforcement officer in Charlottesville, VA has come forward to clear his conscience and reveal the truth — or at least his version of it — that what went down in the city was not only condoned by city governance but was intentional, orchestrated and may have been planned as long ago as May.
The as-yet unidentified police officer has said that the Charlottesville P.D. were specifically instructed to bring the radical left and right wing groups together to instigate violence and then to told to “stand down” once violence ensued in a deliberate effort to ignite a race riot. Hear his words:
The story is being told on YourNewsWire.com and other sources:“A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his anger at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protestors. He also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to further the agenda of the elites.
“We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“
“The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, ordered police to stand down during the most chaotic and destructive period of the protests – despite police protests against the orders.
“We wanted to do our job and keep the peace. But these mother******s in charge really want to destroy America.”
This revelation is huge and if true may implicate Mayor Signer and possibly other city officials in the death of a citizen.“Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was on the scene in Charlottesville and he backs up the police officer’s claims.
“I can say, having been in Emancipation Park from early on that morning, that what I saw with my own two eyes confirms what this law enforcement source told us. At least from all visible appearances. We saw people coming out of that park who had head wounds, who were bleeding from the head, people walking into that park with bats, with sticks — you saw what they were wearing — helmets, body armor, they had come — and this pertains to both sides — they had come to do damage.. you cannot help but notice from that video that police had been more pro-active, they could have potentially calmed this thing down to some degree.”
Here’s McKelway’s initial report upon landing on the ground in Charlottesville. Remember this is long before these new revelations when neither he nor anyone had the slightest idea some dirty tricks may be afoot. To cut directly to the chase fast forward to the 2:40 mark of this 3:51 long video and listen to what the reporter says:“As wounded were being brought out of the park police were sitting idly by.” Now why would the cops, sworn servants of the populace be just standing around while citizens are bleeding right in front of them? Could it be because they were given specific orders to render no assistance in an effort to let tensions fester?
Breaking911 tweeted video of James Fields, Jr., driver of the car in the deadly attack, as he fled the scene. People are now noticing how at no point was the car that plowed into the crowd of protesters pursued by police – there is not a police car in sight leading into the area or in pursuit as he drives away! How does that happen?
In the 38-second video below cops are plainly visible as Fields drives his battered Chrysler away from the carnage. Officers can clearly be seen looking directly at the suspect and his torn up car yet they casually observe the man who’d just mowed down dozens of people. They allow him to motor on by as if on a Sunday drive. They make NO effort to stop the car which is a mere yard or two away with its torn up windshield and front end traveling at a very low rate of speed leaving a trail of smoke:
Does this seem like a normal reaction by law enforcement in such a situation? The depth of this conspiracy runs deeper:
“[Mayor] Michael Signer is a Virginia Democratic activist with close ties to Barack Obama and John Podesta. Before landing the Charlottesville mayor job he previously worked closely with Podesta at the Center of American Progress and worked with him again on Barack Obama’s State Department Transition Team.
…The man accused of being a neo-Nazi and murdering a woman by deliberately driving into her during protests in Charlottesville is in reality a supporter of Hillary Clinton and member of Antifa in receipt of funding by George Soros.
White supremacist and ‘Unite the Right’ leader, Jason Kessler, has been exposed as a supporter of former President Obama and a hardline member of far-left Occupy movement.
When did he change his political leaning? According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (an organization that is certainly no friend to Conservatives), Kessler revealed his political transformation around November 2016, the same month Donald Trump won the presidential election.
“If you think that is suspicious, wait until you learn about the other actors in this enormous set-up event.
Brennan Gilmore was the first man “on the scene” and was the author of the first viral tweet about Charlottesville. He was later interviewed by MSNBC. He was presented as an accidental witness. But who is he really?
Gilmore worked in Africa as a State Department foreign officer under Hillary Clinton. The New York Times mentioned this “coincidence” – and then later deleted it. Brennan Gilmore was also involved with the Kony hoax in 2012, and he is currently Chief of Staff for Tom Perrielo, who is running for Governor of Virginia and received $380k from George Soros.
So the first man on the scene, whose tweet went viral, and who was later interviewed on mainstream news as a witness, just happened to be a State Department insider with a long history of involvement in psy-ops? If you think this isn’t fishy, how about this – since the Charlottesville protests and his appearance in the media, his information was suddenly removed from State Department websites.”
We need to clarify that these are early accounts and as yet unverified, but if true this is very, very serious stuff. It points directly to the reality of the “deep state” and more importantly to the lengths that the Soros/Clinton/Obama one-world government cabal will go in order to realize their desires for ‘fundamental transformation.’
Folks this is much, much more serious than white supremacists versus Antifa fighting in the streets.

Dina Habib Powell: McMaster’s Huma Abedin
By Pamela Geller - on August 12, 2017
HOW THE LEFT DESTROYS THE NATION
“The real power doesn’t belong to the politicians you elect, but to bureaucrats and staffers, to the people who, like Huma Abedin or Dina Habib Powell, are talented at knowing the right people.”
Trump has got to fight this, and stand up for the principles upon which he was elected. McMaster must go.
“Dina Habib Powell: McMaster’s Huma Abedin,” by Daniel Greenfield, FrontPage, August 11, 2017:
The media dubbed her the Republican Huma Abedin. She’s been one of the most powerful women in two Republican administrations. She’s friends with Valerie Jarrett. And you’ve never heard her name.
Flash back to the spring of this year.
Cameras flashed as Aya Hijazi sat next to President Trump. Media reports described her as an imprisoned rescue worker who had been released from Egypt after administration intervention.
Aya Hijazi was also the photogenic face of a campaign against the post-Brotherhood Egyptian government. If you believed the stories, Hijazi had learned French and Spanish while in prison. Photos showed her reading Maya Angelou’s ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings’ behind bars. Snaps from that calculated photoshoot would be used to illustrate countless media sob stories about her plight in prison.
Mohamed Hassanein, her husband, received far less attention. As did the other arrested members of the Belady Foundation which had been accused of using street children in Muslim Brotherhood riots.
Aya’s cause was quickly taken up by all the usual suspects.
Hillary Clinton had met with President Sisi and called for Hijazi’s release. Rep. Gerry Connolly, the go-to guy for Muslim Brotherhood front groups, had blustered, “The Egyptian government mistakes American resolve.” Avril Haines, the former indie bookstore owner who had been appointed by Obama as Deputy Director of the CIA and Deputy National Security Advisor, despite having no relevant experience, met with Hijazi’s family and issued a statement demanding her release.
None of this meant that Hassanein and Hijazi were guilty of the charges. Politically they appeared to be closer to the left than to the Islamists. Hijazi hasn’t worn a hijab outside of her imprisonment.
But the larger question is whose interests were being served by bringing her to the White House?
In a PBS interview, Aya Hijazi challenged President Trump’s praise for Egypt’s leader. She accused him of keeping “thousands of wrongly imprisoned people” in prison. “It’s not just for fighting terrorism,” she insisted. And she made a point of correcting President Trump on the Muslim Brotherhood.
“It seemed like he had this idea that… it was at the time of the Muslim Brotherhood,” Hijazi said. “So, he was like, ‘So was your arrest — be at the time of the Brotherhood?’ And I said, no. And then he said, ‘Oh, it was at the time of Sisi.’ And he was taken aback. It seemed, like, different to what he had in mind.”
The media had agitated for Hijazi because it served its agenda of opposing Sisi and supporting the Brotherhood. Bringing Hijazi to the White House appeared to serve the same agenda. She was meant as an object lesson to Trump that the real bad guys weren’t the Brotherhood, but the Egyptian military.
Hijazi was escorted back from Egypt by Dina Habib Powell. And Habib Powell was there sitting opposite Ivanka and Jared at the meeting with President Trump. In the media, Powell is often associated with Ivanka. And indeed, Ivanka posed with Hijazi in a widely circulated photo. But she is also so much more.
Dina Habib Powell was an influential figure in the Bush administration. The Egyptian-American immigrant had served as a gatekeeper for George W. Bush. If you wanted a job, you went through her. Barely 30, Habib Powell had more power than many of the big Bush era names you do know.
Then she took on the mission of promoting America to the Muslim world at the State Department. There were cultural exchanges with Iran and money for Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority. Afterward it was off to make millions through philanthropy at the Goldman Sachs Foundation.
When President Trump took office, Avril Haines was replaced by K. T. McFarland at the National Security Council. McFarland had worked at the Pentagon under Reagan and her views on Islamic terror were forthright. “Global Islamist jihad is at war with all of Western Civilization,” she said after the Charlie Hebdo attacks. She called for profiling terrorists and an end to the big lie of political correctness.
“They have launched a guerrilla war against us in our own neighborhoods. They shout ‘Allahu Akbar, The Prophet is Avenged.’ We’re still calling it ‘workplace violence,’ ‘senseless killings’ or ‘man-caused disasters.’ Our leaders insist these are criminal acts, not acts of war.”
Of the Muslim Brotherhood, McFarland correctly pointed out that, “The Muslim Brotherhood was the godfather of al-Qaeda. The number 2 guy in al-Qaeda was Muslim Brotherhood.”
When Flynn was forced out and McMaster took over, there was no room for her views at the NSC.
At an NSC meeting, H.R. McMaster insisted that Islamic terror had nothing to do with Islam. The use of “radical Islamic terrorism” was a mistake. McFarland was in attendance.
Before long, McMaster had pushed out McFarland and replaced her with Dina Habib Powell.
Habib Powell had all the right friends. Like Valerie Jarrett. Arianna Huffington praised the White House for bringing her in. Her ex-husband heads up Teneo Strategy: the organization created by the same man who made the Clinton Foundation happen and which employed Huma Abedin.
You could see her posing next to Huma, Arianna and a Saudi princess. You can see her photographed at the American Task Force of Palestine gala. The ATFP was originally Rashid Khalidi’s American Committee on Jerusalem. Khalidi was the former PLO spokesman at the center of the Obama tape scandal. And Habib Powell was there as a presenter at the Middle East Institute after a speech by the PLO’s Hanan Ashrawi.
Unlike McFarland, Habib Powell had no national security background. But though her parents were Christians, she had the “right” views on Islam. In Egypt, she had described how Bush after September 11 had, “visited a mosque, took off his shoes and paid his respects.” “I see the president talk of Islam as a religion of peace, I see him host an iftar every year.” Habib Powell had attended such an iftar dinner.
While President Trump fights to restrict Muslim immigration, back in the Bush era, Habib Powell had bragged on CNN, “Over 90% of student visas are now issued in under a week, and that is in the Middle East.”
Habib Powell has been described as the Republican Huma Abedin. And she was quoted as saying that Abedin “feels a deep responsibility to encourage more mutual understanding between her beliefs and culture and American culture.”
Within a short time, Habib Powell became the Senior Counselor for Economic Initiatives, the Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy and was being put forward as Chief of Staff. If Kelly doesn’t work out, the effort to move her up will resume. And then the gatekeeper will be back at the gate.
Dina Habib Powell is a deep part of the Republican establishment. Her top role at the NSC represents McMaster’s vision for our approach to Islam. And it’s an echo of the failed approach of the Bush years. Flynn made the NSC into a tool that matched Trump’s vision. McMaster is remaking it to match Jeb Bush’s vision.
The Hijazi stunt was the public manifestation of an effort to pull Trump away from President Sisi and guide him into the same old swamp of pushing democracy and political change in Egypt. There is worse taking place behind the scenes. The NSC purge of personnel who understand the threat of Islamic terrorism is not a mere political power struggle, it’s policy. McMaster is just the public face of it.
The swamp is deeper than most understand or imagine. When you come to the city of government buildings and lobbyists, it’s all around you. And if you take a wrong step, it sucks you in. The real power doesn’t belong to the politicians you elect, but to bureaucrats and staffers, to the people who, like Huma Abedin or Dina Habib Powell, are talented at knowing the right people.
When we talk about the swamp, it’s not an organization. It’s a way of life. If you’re not fighting the swamp all the time, if you don’t wake up resisting it and go to bed fighting free of it, you will drown in it.
AG Sessions Orders Full Audit Of Obama Slush Funds As Corruption Enters Spotlight
Posted by Danny Abarno | Aug 4, 2017 | Liberal Corruption
AG Sessions Aims at the Heart of Corruption as Obama Era Slush Fund Enters Spotlight
An internal memorandum released by the Department of Justice discusses Jeff Session’s intentions to pursue investigations into Obama’s Slush Fund. This fund was stopped by Session immediately upon arrival to his position and in years past it was used to extort individuals into donating to fraudulent charities that would then use the funds to promote progressive or anti-American values into politics.
This kind of action should land someone in jail as they are basically using the state’s power and resources to threaten individuals into donating so they are not prosecuted. The Obama Administration had no intentions of prosecuting criminals so long as they can profit and redirect their funds to their own causes as light continues to shine on the most corrupt administration in history.
Criminal In Chief Obama’s Slush Funds are being audited
This is undoubtedly the biggest scandal that had Obama directly implicated. Rather than prosecuting individuals who broke the law, these corrupt and vile leftists extorted them to “donate” money to charities so they would not be further investigated or prosecuted.
This is blatant corruption and it is about time that Sessions and the DoJ tackle the corruption problem. The latest news about Sessions has had many wondering about what actions are going to be taken against the previous criminal administration. These are not crimes that can just be swept under the rug as they have violated our laws and made a mockery of the institutions our forefathers fought to defend.
These kinds of groups that would receive funding include racist organization La Raza, which violently advocates for Latino mass immigration. La Raza members have been identified as possible assailants against Trump supporters at his rallies in California.
The problem is that once these non-victim entities receive the money, there are no restrictions as to what they can do with or how they were even chosen to receive the money. It is pure and simple corruption as it is almost impossible to tell if the organizations that received the money from settlements were used to pay back with Justice Department Officials or other White House Administration Officials.
It’s no wonder that only groups who represent anti-American values received funding
The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) sounds like a nice and helpful organization to donate to but in reality their biggest political goals have been to establish loose voter ID laws in California and other states so that illegals can receive the benefits associated with a driver’s license.
The National Urban League received funding from this scam as well as almost $3 billion is what should have been taxpayer dollars were distributed to groups that aim to remove the values of America and replace them with their own.
Every single one of these NGO’s that conspire to create new laws and provisions for people who hate America need to be investigated and audited now. If these kinds of groups can receive taxpayer dollars to buy politicians or officials then it is only a matter of time until more dangerous and violent groups reach their hands out.
Is the Taliban receiving taxpayer money to help them spread their message of infidel hate? Perhaps Hezbollah or Boko Haram could go for some free money to buy their weapons and equipment? The Justice Department under Loretta Lynch said that these types of transactions were respectable and did not need to go through the US Treasury because they were donations, but donations that allowed high ranking individuals to avoid prosecution.
The Hypocrisy is Staggering as a Current Republican President Can Not Even Enjoy Ice Cream without Controversy while the Story of the Decade is cast aside
This type of action is highly immoral and illegal as these Obama Administration thugs were threatening to investigate and prosecute if people did not pay up to their sketchy funds. Stolen money and what should have been taxpayer dollars at the very least were used around the world to carry out leftist and globalist plots to remove nationalism and religious identities from those in West. However, since the funding program has been stopped, it is now time to investigate to see where the money went.
Sessions announcement called for the retrieval of the past 10 years worth of donations to third party non-victims who received these payments. This will allow a paper trail to be completed that should compile interviews with suspects of receiving payment as well as Obama Administration Officials who were complicit and involved with slush funds. Sessions need to see how far this rabbit hole goes and have the communications team running stories about this size and magnitude of corruption taking place inside Washington D.C.
This General Made A Bone Chilling Statement About North Korea
The crisis surrounding North Korea’s rogue nuclear program is reaching a boiling point.
War could break out at any moment.
And one top general delivered a shocking prediction about the outcome.
Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley delivered a speech at the National Press Club in Washington.
He described the threat of North Korea’s nuclear program in dire terms, but made a prediction about what would happen if Kim Jong Un provoked war with the United States.
Milley said America would wipe them out.
THE U.S. WOULD “UTTERLY DESTROY” THE NORTH KOREAN MILITARY IN A WAR, THE U.S. ARMY’S TOP UNIFORMED OFFICIAL SAID ON THURSDAY.
ARMY CHIEF OF STAFF GENERAL MARK MILLEY WARNED, HOWEVER, THAT WAR IN THE KOREAN PENINSULA WOULD BE “HIGHLY DEADLY,” BEARING A HIGH COST IN TERMS OF HUMAN LIFE, INFRASTRUCTURE AND ECONOMIC FALLOUT.
“WAR IN THE KOREAN PENINSULA WOULD BE TERRIBLE, HOWEVER A NUCLEAR WEAPON DETONATING IN LOS ANGELES WOULD BE [EVEN MORE] TERRIBLE,” MILLEY SAID IN A SPEECH TO THE NATIONAL PRESS CLUB IN WASHINGTON, ABOUT AMERICA’S SECURITY THREATS. “NORTH KOREA IS THE SINGLE, MOST-DANGEROUS THREAT FACING THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND THE U.S. TODAY”
Tensions with Pyongyang have ratcheted up since the communist nation successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
The ICBM stayed in the air for over forty minutes and traveled hundreds of miles.
Experts estimated this weapon is capable of striking targets as far away as Alaska.
The last hurdle North Korea needs to jump is working out how to attach a nuclear warhead to an ICBM.
In his speech, Milley warned that this development means the clock is ticking toward zero hour in dealing with North Korea.
Newsweek also reports:
“MILLEY WARNED THAT, GIVEN PYONGYANG’S PROGRESS WITH IT’S ICBM TESTING, THE TIME TO STOP NORTH KOREA FROM OBTAINING NUCLEAR WEAPONS, A KEY POINT IN THE U.S.’S SECURITY STRATEGY, HAD SHORTENED SIGNIFICANTLY.
“TIME IS RUNNING OUT, NORTH KOREA IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND IT GETS MORE DANGEROUS AS TIME GOES BY,” HE SAID.
MILLEY SAID HE DID NOT THINK THERE WERE ANY GOOD OPTIONS WHEN CONSIDERING MEASURES TO CONTAIN THE THREAT FROM NORTH KOREA.
“CHOICES WILL HAVE TO BE MADE, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. NONE OF THESE CHOICES ARE PARTICULARLY PALATABLE, NONE OF THEM ARE GOOD. THE CONSEQUENCES OF DOING NOTHING IS NOT GOOD, THE CONSEQUENCES OF ACCEPTING THEM WITH A NUCLEAR WEAPON THAT CAN STRIKE AT THE UNITED STATES IS NOT GOOD, THE CONSEQUENCES OF ARMED CONFLICT IS NOT GOOD, THE CONSEQUENCES OF A COLLAPSED NORTH KOREA IS NOT GOOD,” HE SAID.
“BUT IT DOES NOT RELIEVE US OF THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CHOICE. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE CONSCIOUS DECISIONS THAT ARE GOING TO HAVE SIGNIFICANT CONSEQUENCES,” HE ADDED.”
While Donald Trump is working to peacefully resolve the situation, his team is preparing for all options.

JUST IN: 9th Court Uses Federal Power, Judges To Enact Devastating Seattle Police Policy
Posted by Sam Di Gangi | Sep 20, 2017
This court has just made a very dangerous ruling.
In America today, only a fool would want to give the police unlimited powers. We know how the Bundys and their ranch were mishandled and there are reports often of our 4th Amendment being neutered daily. Still, cops are getting a bad rap for shooting thugs who social justice warriors embrace so loudly–such as we saw in the officer Stockley case in St. Luis and in the Michael Brown case. In both instances, the criminals deserved what they got.
To further confuse the issue and blur the lines of right and wrong, “the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals” has “ruled Tuesday that Seattle police can only use force ‘proportional’ to the threat they face,” the Daily Caller reports. That may sound good, but the first time a 110-pound female officer faces an unarmed 250-pound man, we can see where this idea falls apart. These federal judges have effectively expanded their powers to render Seattle police defenseless to criminals. Let that one sink in for a moment.
For that matter, what happens the first time that a Barney Fife-sized deputy faces a roided out MMA fighter with a bat? He is to use his batton and what? Harsh language? This policy is nothing short of devastating.
Will these cops be afraid to use their guns when needed?
The Obama era brought us the idea that police should use “objectively reasonable force, proportional to the threat or urgency of the situation.” Certainly, someone refusing a checkpoint should not be allowed to get beaten with batons and maced. However, a towering home invader making a run for it should have to fear being shot in the back, that is just common sense.
In spite of this logic, the Associated Press says that the horrendous decision was upheld against the wishes of “more than 120 Seattle officers in 2014 who claimed that the strict reforms infringe on an officer’s right to self-defense and the Second Amendment,” the Caller confirms.
“The City of Seattle has a significant interest in regulating the use of department-issued firearms by its police officers,” wrote Judge William Hayes.
He added that the ruling “did not impose a substantial burden on plaintiffs’ right to use a firearm.” That is easy for him to say since he is not a David facing a Goliath and not allowed to use his slingshot, which is basically what this ruling does to some officers.
The Seattle Times writes that the new rules may cause “hesitation and paralysis,” a situation where an officer is afraid to defend himself properly for fear that he or she shall lose their job for doing so.
City Attorney Pete Holmes (pictured) was happy about the ruling which may put cops at a dangerous disadvantage.
Furthermore, police warn that this hesitation could cause a “dramatic decrease in proactive police work to investigate and stop crime.”
City Attorney Pete Holmes had glowing words for the decision saying, “On behalf of the city, I welcome this confirmation that constitutional policing and officer safety go hand-in-hand,” to the Seattle Met.
Here are the facts, however. Police are spending too much time pulling over drivers, rooting through our private things, and fining, jailing, and ticketing the population. This has created an understandably-enraged populace.
To combat this, we don’t need to disarm the cops when dealing with real criminals. We just need to erase a lot of laws so that they can do that.

Young Boy Adamantly Insists He’s A Girl & Transitions, Everything Changes Two Years Later
Posted by Georgette Walrath
Sep 8, 2017
Patrick Mitchell was allowed to change his gender with medication when he was 12-years-old, but two years later he realized he’d made a grave mistake. He is now trying to undo the impact of the hormones.
The progressive push to legitimize transgender individuals is both aggressive and based on fallacy. One case demonstrates exactly how wrong it is to not only tell children that they can choose their gender, but allow them to make that decision before they reach the age of adulthood. Patrick Mitchell, who decided to become a girl when he was 12, has now decided that he’s actually a boy, just like his biology indicated at birth.
Children are not allowed to drive motor vehicles until they reach a certain age, nor are they allowed to vote, drink alcohol, or purchase firearms. However, activist doctors are supporting the idea that children can make an adult decision about their own sexuality even before they reach puberty. Everything about that type of thinking is base and wrong.
When Patrick was just 12-years-old, he decided that he wanted to be a girl. He asked his mother if he could start hormone treatments after doctors diagnosed him with the mental disorder known as gender dysphoria.
Although children aren’t allowed to operate heavy machinery or purchase a firearm because of the danger, liberal doctors are allowing them to ruin their chance at having kids by prescribing hormone replacements for children who haven’t even hit puberty.
Leading doctors disagree about transgender treatment. On the liberal progressive side, non-expert physicians say that more and more cases of the disorder are being discovered. However, many conservatives wonder whether the social battery of transgender acceptance has influenced young children, who are already highly susceptible to suggestion.
In a recent CBS News report, Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, explained that a sex change was “biologically impossible.” He is considered a foremost expert on the subject and says that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that requires treatment, not support.
McHugh also argues that the disorder is similar to anorexia, and those doctors who support hormone replacement therapy and tell young people who are “susceptible to suggestion from ‘everything is normal’ sex education,” are misguided and their “support” is actually harming the children.
By refusing to acknowledge the mental disorder of transgenderism, the progressive move to make it acceptable is harming children.
He warns people that doctors who diagnose gender dysphoria will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous – even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.” This is wrong. Children that age can’t comprehend the consequences, but adults can. Those who support it are essentially child abusers.
Moreover, this leading psychiatrist said that research proves 80 percent of children who are diagnosed that way will “abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ….”
Obviously, he’s right in the case of Patrick. The boy’s mother was told by liberal physicians that she should allow her son to take drugs that stunt growth and possibly cause sterility. So basically because this boy, who isn’t old enough to make personal decision about who to vote for, was allowed to risk his future because of a progressive idea not based on medical fact.
He grew out his hair and started the hormone regimen which caused the development of breasts. However, after two years, about the time that teachers started referring to him as a girl, he wondered if he had made the right decision.
By introducing Patrick to an abnormal lifestyle and then allowing him to pursue it without regard to his future, his family and doctors have made a severe mistake. He told his mother that he wanted to be a boy, so now he’s stopped the medication and will have to undergo surgery to remove the breast tissue that developed.
The move to indoctrinate children in Australia, Europe, and America into some gender-less, confused society is dangerous. Not only will Patrick have to deal with the emotional toll this took on his life, he may never be able to father children.
Although research proves that 80 percent of children who express “gender dysphoria” actually grow out of the feelings, more and more doctors are pushing hormone replacements on undeveloped kids.
A high number of people who identify as “transgender” have serious mental problems unrelated to their biology. Dr. McHugh stated that John Hopkins stopped performing reassignment surgery because “[patient’s] subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery.”
He explained, “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”
For Patrick, hopefully the idiotic actions of the adults in his life won’t permanently scar him. If children are too immature to operate a vehicle because they can’t understand the consequences, then they are absolutely too immature to make a decision about their sexual preferences before they go through puberty.
The progressive push to make this mental disorder something socially acceptable is hurting children and it must stop. Fortunately, Patrick realized his mistake before it was irremediable. The long-term biological injury he’ll face is not known at this point.
Antifa Sees “Bikers for Trump” Arrive, Enraged By What They Quietly Began to Do
August 25, 2017 Frank Spear
The blatant exaggeration of the liberal media has left a sour taste in the mouths of many Trump supporters around the country. When the President planned a rally in Phoenix, Arizona a group of bikers knew what they had to do.
A group called Bikers for Trump Arizona got together on Facebook and decided that they were going to do everything possible to ensure that people could go to the rally unharmed. Due to previously viewed videos of Antifa, the bikers knew it would be an uphill battle as they held their peaceful composure against the violent protesters. Before they went in and started protecting attendees, they decided to gather in a circle and pray for the safety of all the bikers involved. This likely infuriated the Left even further.
The people involved in the Bikers for Trump Arizona group established group rules before they went into the rally. Ground rules seem to be a foreign concept to groups like Antifa, as evidenced by their typical behavior.
Bikers for Trump Arizona’s Facebook post reads, “Our support of President Trump and American values should always be reflected by our actions and conducts.” They appear to pass a more wholesome, and truthful image of Trump supporters, despite the fact that is will likely be ignored by the mainstream media.
In the post, the group stated: “If you are an Arizona member, please be mindful of our policy of integrity, we do not incite or instigate violence, disrespect other groups, or discriminate against others ever.”
Their main goal was to make sure that families attending the Trump rally could do so without being harassed by groups like Antifa. In the past, people have been pepper sprayed, beaten, and left on the ground with serious injuries after Antifa finished acting out their terroristic behavior.
The prayer was important, not just for the bikers, but for every proud American who watched it occur. The purpose of their prayer was to ask for protection for everyone in attendance–even anti-Trump protesters.
The post ended with them stating that they wish that everyone gets to make it home to their families at the end of the day. There is a reason that the Left hates this type of behavior so much.
The simplest way to explain it is it goes against their narrative. These people have it in their minds that Trump supporters are savages who have no regard for human life. Ironically, they have proven that they are the very thing they swear to hate.
When they see a group of burly bikers praying, the display of peace and faith must be startling to Leftists. What they are seeing contradicts everything they preach about on a daily basis.
Another reason that praying may have upset them is that most Liberals do not like the concept of prayer and God. While Christians look to God as comfort, the “Alt-Left” sees God as a barrier.
If they tried to have a conversation with a Christian instead of threatening to beat them or murder them, the Left might find out that there is much more than meets the eye. It is an admirable thing that Bikers for Trump Arizona did for the supporters earlier this week. If there are more examples like this in the media in the future, progressives will have no choice but to change their narrative and address this situation head-on.
Censored! McMaster Barred Scholar Ayaan Hirsi Ali from Giving Talk on Radical Islam at NSC
Ayaan Hirsi Ali was schedule to present a paper on radical Islamic terror at the National Security Counsel before being blocked by H.R. McMaster and his recently appointed Senior Director of Counter-Terrorism, Mustafa Javed Ali.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who was in town to present her work to the Senate, was also prohibited from visiting the President during her White House visit, where she was allowed to meet with select members of the NSC in an informal setting.
Asked why she was censored, a source reported, “Mustafa Javed Ali said she was Islamophobic, and that the only way she could present her paper would be to have someone from CAIR come in to refute her work.”
This “both sides” justification for banning Ali was, according to my source, “complete bulls*t.”
“People come in to present their views every day. There’s no requirement that every presentation be a debate.”
McMaster has refused to call out radical Islamic terrorism in the past, and tried to stop President Donald Trump from visiting the Western Wall in Israel.

Loretta Lynch And James Comey Just Got Career Ending News
The media and Deep State have used investigations into Russia to destroy Trump’s Presidency.
But that’s all changed.
And now it’s Loretta Lynch and James Comey on the hot seat.
Months of Congressional inquiries into the Trump-Russia connection have yielded no evidence on collusion.
The “scandal” is all fake news pushed by Trump’s enemies in effort to generate a scandal that will overturn the results of the 2016 election.
Now some Republicans are fed up with Congress being used as a club to beat up the Trump administration.
The House Judiciary Committee voted to launch an investigation into former FBI Director James Comey for leaking memos of conversations he had with the President, and into Loretta Lynch’s conduct in the Clinton email investigation.
“The House Judiciary Committee has officially approved an effort to launch an investigation into former FBI director James Comey’s leaking activities and apparent mishandling of a federal investigation by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The new investigative effort, authorized by the passage of the amendment in the Judiciary Committee, 16-13 along partisan lines, digs deep requesting documents and information related to Comey’s leaks of conversations he had with President Donald Trump before Trump fired him. According to the Washington Post, Democrats on the committee were infuriated Republicans pressed forward with the probe.
“This is the most astonishing moment I’ve ever experienced in the Judiciary Committee,” one Democrat, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), said. “To take a question about the firing of James B. Comey and turn it into a question about Hillary Clinton? The chairman has left the room. Justice has left this room. Common sense has left this room. A lot of stuff has left this room, and maybe never entered it.”
The amendment was offered by Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Mike Johnson (R-LA). It passed Wednesday evening, authorizing the opening of the Judiciary Committee probe. It remains to be seen if subjects of the investigation will cooperate, and if they do not cooperate it remains to be seen if the Committee will use its broad subpoena power to compel document production and testimony.”
Republicans were outraged when Comey revealed that he leaked memos of his conversations with Trump to an associate so they would end up in the press to force the appointment a special counsel.
And that is exactly what happened.
Comey wanted revenge for Trump firing him and now special counsel Robert Mueller’s out-of-control probe is a cocked pistol pointed at the White House.
In addition, the amendment calls for an investigation into Comey’s knowledge of Fusion GPS, the Democrat and Kremlin-connected opposition research firm that commissioned the discredited Christopher Steele dossier, which was used to kick off the collusion investigation.
But that’s not all.
The amendment also states that Congress will investigate Loretta Lynch’s tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton as well as her conduct during the Clinton email investigation.
After Comey testified that Lynch ordered him to refer to the Clinton email investigation as a “matter” – which was language that synched up perfectly with Clinton campaign talking points – Comey became alarmed.
While Congress has so far accomplished nothing other than gumming up the works of the Trump administration while chasing down fake news Russia stories, the real crimes – Comey’s alleged illegal leaks and Lynch’s alleged obstruction of justice – have so far escaped scrutiny.
A group of Republicans in the House took the first step toward achieving justice for the real crimes.

Catherine Austin Fitts-They're Trying to Centralize Control
Published on May 9, 2017
Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts says the elite are trying to shrink the pie to centralize control. It doesn't have to be that way. There are lots of ways to grow the pie, and one way is with new technology.
Fitts thinks President Trump “has done a much better job than I expected considering he has no government experience.”
The fraud in the budgets, according to Fitts, has got to stop. . . . More than $11 trillion has disappeared from the federal budgets, and it’s all documented on Solari.com.

THE 20 DISEASES 'REFUGEES' BRING INTO THE WEST
Exclusive: Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D., reports latest increases authorities fail to publicizePublished: 2 days ago
Note: Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet is a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, AAPS.
Since 2005, Americans have been warned about microscopic border crossers carried in with refugees and illegal immigrants, bringing diseases previously eradicated or rarely seen here. When not simply ignored by media and health officials, physicians and others sounding the alarm have been attacked as xenophobes.
Now we’re seeing these prescient predictions come true, most prominently in Germany, since 2015 when Angela Merkel began allowing more than 2 million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East to flood into her country.
U.S. and German citizens are put at significant risk by the politically correct acceptance of unscreened immigrants from countries with a high prevalence of infectious diseases, many difficult or impossible to treat. Yet authorities in both countries have failed to fully inform the public of the dangers.
According to the July 2017 Infectious Disease Epidemiology Annual Report by the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin, Germany has seen a surge in chicken pox, cholera, dengue fever, tuberculosis, leprosy, measles, malaria, meningococcal diseases, hemorrhagic fevers, hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, typhus, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, trichinellosis, whooping cough, and many fungal and parasitic infections. Here are a few striking examples:
Measles is up more than 450 percent. Hepatitis B is up 300 percent. Scabies escalated nearly 3,000 percent. HIV/AIDS increased 30 percent. Tuberculosis (TB) is at least 30 percent higher – but German and U.S. physicians suspect that the incidence of TB is actually far higher than reported, and is being downplayed to avoid causing public outrage over the influx of immigrants. In Germany, more than 40 percent of TB cases are multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB).Dengue fever is up over 25 percent just from 2014.
A similar pattern has emerged in the U.S. since the massive increase in illegal border crossers and refugees beginning in 2010.
As in the U.S., many hundreds of thousands of migrants “disappear” into cities and towns across Germany, without a health screening. There is no way to monitor them for disease or to ensure adequate treatment. Citizens are exposed without their knowledge; risks are especially serious for children and the elderly.
In a briefing to the Arizona Senate in 2016, experts reported that the U.S. is suffering near “pandemic medical issues” due to the continuous influx of illegal aliens and refugees from countries where infectious diseases are widespread. As of 2016, two states were in the Catastrophic Phase and another 13 were in the Critical Phase of public health impact from these infectious diseases. Arizona was No. 9 of 13 states in the Critical Phase but was expected to move into the Catastrophic Phase by fall of 2016 as a result of people who are latent carriers of disease or who entered the country during the incubation period for a disease. We were unable to learn the current status from personal calls to Arizona county and state officials.
TB is one of the most serious threats. Latent TB can remain dormant for years, even decades. It is alarming that 18 percent of refugees in Arizona arrive with latent TB, while in the general Arizona population the incidence was only 4 percent. Multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB), common in migrants, may cost more than $400,000 per patient, compared with $20,000 for the drug-responsive TB that has been predominant in U.S.-born patients. Treatment of MDR-TB has serious side effects, with no guarantee of success.
U.S. taxpayers pay this cost. In addition, all who might have been exposed to an active case must be screened, followed and possibly treated.
Even healthy immigrants burden the system with social costs, such as housing, education and food stamps – costs borne by taxpaying workers whose own wages are depressed by competition from a glut of low-paid foreigners. Illegal immigrants are estimated to cost U.S. taxpayers $17 billion per year. That $17 billion is in addition to the costs for those allowed here legally under “refugee” status, for which we do not have reliable public estimates.
Liberal and progressive politicians like to say, “America is the land of immigrants.” In the past, this meant legal immigrants who follow our screening procedures for illness and other laws and who are coming to America to be part of our culture.
Medical screening was one of the core purposes of the Ellis Island immigration center in New York. New arrivals were examined, quarantined if needed, or sent back to their country of origin if they posed a risk to Americans.
To protect the health and safety of American citizens, we must reinstate our prior customary medical screening as outlined on our own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
For national security and medical concerns, President Trump is correct to enforce our immigration laws, with careful vetting of those seeking to come to America to live and work.
Move Over Trump, Miller Takes Out ‘Fake News’ New York Times And CNN [VIDEO]
White House Correspondent
4:36 PM 08/02/2017
WASHINGTON — White House senior adviser Stephen Miller battled reporters from The New York Times and CNN during Wednesday’s press briefing taking the reins from President Trump on the war on “fake news.”
Miller was at the briefing in support of the Raise Act, a Senate bill that would cut immigration by half over ten years and represent the most significant immigration reform in over half a century. The bill, which is sponsored by Republican senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, would accomplish this by implementing a merit-based immigration system and largely ending the current practice of immigrants bringing over large amounts of family members.
New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush and CNN reporter Jim Acosta both were skeptical about the bill at the White House press briefing. Miller’s exchange with Acosta was the most fiery, with the White House adviser telling Acosta that his “cosmopolitan bias” is being exposed to a “shocking degree.”
Acosta had asked whether the legislation is in accord with the 1883 poem on the Statue of Liberty that states, “give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.”
“It doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer,” Acosta said. “Aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country if you’re telling them, you have to speak English when they get here?”
Miller pointed out that American citizens need to be able to speak English and added, “so the notion that speaking English wouldn’t be a part of immigration systems would be very ahistorical.”
Acosta later interrupted Miller and asked, “are we just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?”.
“I have to say, I am shocked at your statement that you think that only people from Great Britain and Australia would know English. It’s all — it reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree that in your mind — no, this is an amazing moment,” Miller shot back. The immigration hawk and former Jeff Sessions staffer continued, “Jim, have you honestly never met an immigrant from another country who speaks English outside of Great Britain and Australia?”
The mood in the briefing room was more tense than usual with a mix of laughter and angry muttering. This exchange came shortly after Miller was questioned by Thrush whether he has statistics to back up his claim that low-skill immigrants hurt American workers. Miller cited studies, yet this wasn’t enough to please Thrush, and Miller remarked, “Maybe we’ll make a carve-out in the bill that says The New York Times can hire all the less skilled, low paid workers from other countries and see how you feel about low wage substitution.”
When White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took the podium, she remarked, “That was exciting.”
