SEBASTIAN GORKA TO ANDERSON COOPER: ‘SAD TO SEE CNN FALL TO THIS’ [VIDEO] July 13, 2017 by Nick GivasWhite House deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka told CNN host Anderson Cooper Wednesday that he’s “sad to see CNN fall to this. I know you want salacious, sensational coverage for ratings … but that’s not media.” Gorka has become a frequent critic of CNN, calling them “fake news” and accusing the network of media bias against President Donald Trump in a quest for ratings. Cooper asked if the White House was in crisis mode after Donald Trump Jr.’s email chain showed he met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2016 for opposition research on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “The president is a steam locomotive that will not stop. It’s just fake news,” said Gorka...(Read More...) _________________________
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — Jun 24, 2017, 8:49 PM ET | Getty Images
The Koch brothers' political network plans to pick up the pace of spending in the run-up to 2018, despite major policy disagreements with the Trump administration that includes skepticism of the health care bill now being debated in the Senate.The Koch network of organizations –- funded by some 100,000 donors, with billionaires Charles and David Koch front and center -– had previously announced plans to spend between $300 million and $400 million in the 2017-18 cycle. "We think it's going to be on the high end of that range," Tim Phillips, president of the Kochs’ political wing Americans for Prosperity, told reporters Saturday as the Koch network's twice-a-year conference started. Charles Koch told donors that the network he and his brother control is growing and getting stronger. In his opening remarks to the gathering, at a posh resort in Colorado Springs, he made no mention of President Trump, who has had a tense relationship with the Kochs. "We are more optimistic now about what we can accomplish than we've ever been," Charles Koch said. "I see us taking it to the next level." In Colorado this weekend, hundreds of wealthy conservative donors have joined four governors, six senators, and five House members -– all of them Republicans -– to discuss policy and strategy under the thematic batter of "the courage to lead." As for leadership in Washington, leaders of the Koch-backed political groups are expressing optimism about progress in some areas, particularly judicial appointments and the rollback of regulations. But they are airing sharp differences with the Trump administration in other areas, including criminal justice reform, trade agreements, and drug enforcement. Mark Holden, Koch Industries' general counsel, told reporters that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is embracing a failed "big-government approach" that is "based on fear" when it comes to following tougher sentencing guidelines. Holden has led efforts to reach out to Republicans and Democrats -– including the Obama administration -– on sentencing reform, only to see Sessions move in the other direction. "Hopefully we can change people's minds," Holden said. The Koch-backed groups have stopped short of endorsing the Senate health care draft revealed this past week. They came out against the initial House proposal, but relented after changes were made to reflect conservatives' concerns. "We're still hopeful on the health care front," Phillips said, adding that the bill "needs to get better" from a conservative perspective to earn his group's support. He called it "flatly wrong" for Republicans to support continuing Medicaid expansions -– something moderate lawmakers are pushing for in the Senate. "Their position is not the compassionate way to go, because this program is failing," he said. The Koch brothers have had a tense relationship with Trump, dating back to a primary campaign where the president attacked his GOP rivals for their ties to the billionaires. Charles Koch told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl last April that "it's possible" Hillary Clinton would make a better president than Trump for small-government priorities; the Kochs wound up attacking Clinton in local races while staying away from outright support for Trump. As part of an effort to patch up relations, Vice President Mike Pence met privately Friday night with Charles Koch. Pence was in Colorado for unrelated political events and did not attend the donor gathering. ____________________________
My Visit to Cuba — An American in Havana June 11, 2017 by Dr. Rich Swier Billboard at the José Martí International Airport I had the opportunity to visit Cuba. I flew via Southwest Airlines from Tampa International Airport to the José Martí International Airport in Havana, Cuba on June 4th and returned on June 9th, 2017. After my short visit to Cuba I now fully understand why I spent my entire 23 years in the U.S. Army fighting against Communism. Cuba is the poster child for Communism (i.e. socialism). It is a country with full control of its people by their government. Arriving was like an episode of the Twilight Zone where I was transported back to the 1950s. The 26th of July Movement began in July 1953 and ended when rebels finally ousted Cuban President Fulgencio Batista on 1 January 1959. Not much has improved for the Cuban people since then. The graffiti, in the featured image above, reads, “Cuba, socialism or death!” I saw this graffiti along with pictures of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara throughout the country. On highway billboards, on the walls of buildings, in government museums and in the public square. It is a constant reminder to the Cuban people of where their loyalty lies – to defend Communism at all cost, and the cost is high, very high. The greatest threat to the survival of the Cuban people is “socialismo.” ITS THE ECONOMY STUPID!As former Bill Clinton said, “It’s the economy stupid!” For the Cuban people it truly is the economy, stupid. Perhaps a few of my first hand experiences in Cuba will help those who favor big government understand where “socialismo” leads. One of the things some people, many of whom have never visited Cuba, tout is their “excellent” healthcare system. Let me explain about the Cuban single payer government healthcare system. First, every visitor to Cuba must purchase health insurance from the Cuban government. For example, the cost of my health insurance was automatically included in the price of my plane ticket. So how much does the Cuban government pay its doctors to provide universal healthcare? The salary of a doctor is $30 a month. In 2013 Brazil hired 4,000 doctors from Cuba to “work in areas where medical services and physicians are scarce.” These Cuban doctors were to be paid approximately $30,000 a year to provide medical services to remote areas of Brazil. According to U.S. News & World Report, “Analysts say the export of medical services adds about $6 billion a year to Cuba’s economy.” How does this work? Brazil paid the Cuban government the $30,000 annual salaries of the Cuban doctors and the Cuban government then paid the doctors $30 a month or $360 a year. This equates to an 83% profit for the Cuban government. Not surprisingly many of these Cuban doctors sought asylum in Brazil to be paid what they actually earned, $30,000. In socialist governments the “minimum wage” inextricably becomes the prevailing wage. It’s the economy stupid. WORKING IN THE CUBAN TOURISM INDUSTRYIn 1991, after the fall of the former Soviet Union, the Cuban economy collapsed because economic aid provided by the Russians ended. More recently Cuba’s main international commercial partners—Venezuela, Brazil, China—have lost their appetites for subsidizing the anemic Cuban economy, lending a new urgency to grow perennially lethargic exports, and forcing the Cuban authorities to look for new sources of foreign exchange – tourism. As U.S. News & World Reportnoted, “[T]ourism, the official No. 1 source of incoming cash, brought in $2.5 billion in 2011, according to the most recent statistics available.” With the opening of tourism to U.S. citizens this incoming cash has increased. According to the Brookings Institute, “In the wake of the December 2014 rapprochement, the United States significantly relaxed restrictions on U.S. travel to the island, and prospective tourists in other nations saw Cuba in a new light. As a result, tourist arrivals jumped by over 16 percent in 2015 to 3.5 million. U.S. travelers, including those from the Cuban diaspora, now amount to roughly 14 percent of new arrivals, and are expected to nearly double in 2016.” Our party was nine individuals, all U.S. citizens. We stayed in a large villa, owned by a Spanish citizen, located near embassy row in Havana. The villa could accommodate up to 14 people and came with a staff of five. The cost, including breakfast, for the villa was $10,000. We also hired two drivers with vans to take our party to various sites within Cuba. The cost to hire the two drivers amounted to an additional $2,000. The manager of the villa was paid $15 a month, with individual staff members paid less. The manager went to Havana University and became a statistician. The manager for a number of years was a professor but decided to work in the tourism industry because the pay was better. During our stay I went on a one-hour carriage ride through the heart of Havana. I paid the driver of the carriage $30 for two people to ride in his horse drawn carriage. The driver made $30 in one hour. This one carriage driver made as much in one hour as does a doctor working in a Havana hospital who earns $30 a month. Given the price our party paid to rent the villa and the clear disparity between the wages of those in the tourism industry and the prevailing wage, in Communist Cuba it truly is the economy, stupid. WORKING IN THE FARMING INDUSTRYTobacco rancho in the Vinales valley. Note the picture of Che Guevara on the water tank. To meet the Cuban people we decided to travel outside of Havana. Our group visited a tobacco rancho (farm) about 200 kilometers west of Havana located in the Vinales Valley, the heart of tobacco growing in Cuba. It is in Vinales Valley that Cuban farmers grow what is considered the finest cigar tobacco in the world. The farm we visited has been owned by a Cuban family for generations. We went into a tobacco curing barn and we received a talk about how the tobacco seeds were planted, how the plants were cultivated and how the tobacco was grown, harvested and then cured for a full year or more. We then went to another gazebo type structure to see how cigars are rolled. The tobacco farmer told us that every year he must send 90% of his tobacco crop to the government where it is processed and made into Cuban cigars for sale and export. So how does the farmer survive with just 10% of his crop as his reward for all of his and his families hard work? He produces his own cigars and sells them to tourists. This is a limited form of capitalism in a repressive socialist society. The farmer partnered with a local tour guide to bring foreign visitors to his farm to see his work, try and buy his cigars. His cigars do not have a label like the government brand Cohiba. The government forbids him from branding his cigars and putting them into boxes. This farmer sells his cigars in packets made from palm leaves holding 14 or 20 cigars. A Cohiba cigar sold in Cuban government stores costs from $20 to $30 per cigar. This farmer sells his cigars for $3 each. His cigars are no different than those made in government factories, except his are better. His cigars are cured longer, he removes the stem of the tobacco leaf, which contains all of the nicotine, and wraps them in paper for five days to further age them. This one farmer selling one pack of 20 cigars makes $60 or twice the monthly salary of a doctor. While there our party alone bought 6 packs of 20 cigars or $360 worth of cigars. There were a dozen other tourists at the farm when we arrived. Many of them also bought his cigars. Capitalism works, even in a socialist society. It’s the economy stupid. FINAL THOUGHTSThe Cuban people I spoke with were friendly toward us Americans. Those who provided us with personal services whether in local restaurants, while on tours, our drivers and those who took care of us where we stayed were professional, hard working and kind. But Cuba’s desire to be a tourist attraction is waning. MarketWatch’s Kari Paul reports: A flash of excitement about travel to Cuba after the country opened its borders to the U.S. in 2016 for the first time in decades may have lost some of its shine. Americans are less interested in travel to Cuba this year than they were in 2016, a survey from insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance found. Some 76% of the 1,514 respondents said they were not likely to plan a trip to Cuba in 2017 compared to 70% in 2016.Only 2% of those surveyed planned to visit Cuba in the next six months or by the end of 2017, the same as 2016 despite a projected increase in travelers from the country’s ministry of tourism. It also found that 60% of Americans said “would not like to travel to Cuba” compared to just 58% in 2016. [ … ] Indeed, the initial excitement about the formerly closed off country gave way to moral dilemmas over food shortages and other problems caused by tourism, as well as disappointment over limited working internet, lower hotel standards, and lack of running water there. The Allianz study found lack of travel infrastructure was a major cause of anxiety about traveling to Cuba for 13% of Americans. The slide in demand has led a number of airlines to reduce or completely eliminate flights to the country, including Silver Airways, a Florida-headquartered domestic airline that dropped all nine of its planned routes to Cuba. Frontier is dropping its Miami-Havana route by June 4, after costs in Havana “significantly exceeded our initial assumptions,” a spokesman told MarketWatch. Spirit Airlines will drop its last flight to Cuba by June 1: “The costs of serving Havana continue to outweigh the demand for service,” Spirit Airlines president and chief executive officer of Bob Fornaro said in April. Sumers suggested confusion over the approved reasons to go to Cuba is keeping the average American visitor away still. As of May 2017, visitors to the country have to select one of 12 categories for their visit, which include religious activities, humanitarian projects, “support for the Cuban people,” and journalistic activities. “You can’t go to Cuba to sit on the beach and have fun and that’s what Americans like to do on vacation,” he said. “Cuba is a bit of an outlier still — it is not easy to visit and for a lot of people it’s still a pain. You have to really want to go there.” What I observed is that the Cuban people have great potential if they are unleashed and allowed to earn what they are truly worth. Socialismo is slowly but surely killing their lives and doing them great harm. I noticed on the ride West of Havana through the rural areas of Cuba hundreds of people waiting along the road trying to get a ride. Some were nurses in their white uniforms thumbing rides to the hospital where they are needed. I saw horse drawn carriages along the major highway carrying people because the public transportation system cannot keep up with the demand. The horses and cattle we saw were emaciated. The roads were in poor shape including the national highway system. As one Cuban man put it, “the people have no love for their work.” They have no love for their work because Cuba needs a change in direction. Raul Castro has announced that he will step down as President of Cuba in February 2018. This is a chance for Cuba to change direction. To move to a capitalistic society where the individual benefits from what he or she produces, not the government. However, the Selous Foundation for Public Policy Research reports: The Cuban media has been emphasizing that Raul Castro is leaving power. He announced in 2016 that he would be stepping down as President in 2018. Yet, he was reelected for five years as Secretary General of Cuba’s Communist Party and will remain as head of Cuba’s Armed Forces. The position of President, which will become mostly ceremonial, will be held by Miguel Diaz Canel, a low-level Communist Party bureaucrat with little military or public support. In Cuba, power resides in the military and the Politburo of the Communist Party, both of which will continue to be controlled by Raul and his military comrades. We shall see what happens in February 2018. The great fear among those to whom I spoke with is the new leadership will keep the ways of the old regime. Socialismo o Muerte (socialism or death) must be replaced with Liberar al pueblo cubano (free the Cuban people). ________________________

Definition of a Tea bagger .. To tea bag is a slang term for the sexual act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth of a willing sexual partner for pleasure or onto the face or head of another person. The name of the practice, when it is done in a repeated in-and-out motion, is derived from its passing resemblance to the dipping of a tea bag into a cup of hot water as a method of brewingtea. As a form of non-penetrative sex, it can be done for its own enjoyment or as foreplay. _________________________
Muslim ‘Refugee’ Called Integration Success — Then Slit His Boss’s Throat July 5, 2017 by Selwyn Duke You can’t make this stuff up. In a news article, migrant hair stylist Mohammad Hussain Rashwani was hailed as a shining example of integration in Germany. Ten months later, which was just a few days ago, an article bore the headline, “Herzberg: Syrian hairstylist slits boss’s throat.” Yeah, it was Mohammad. He apparently didn’t go the full Mohammad, since his boss is still alive. But here’s the title and crux of the first piece: August 31, 2016 In early September, Ilona Fugmann will give the Syrian Mohammad Hussain Rashwani a permanent position in her hair salon in Herzberg. The 38-year-old’s skills immediately convinced her. Mohammad Hussain Rashwani is an example of how well integration can work out. The article, all of which can be found at Gates of Vienna, goes on to explain Mohammad’s sterling qualities. He “had an excellent command of his craft” and “gets along well with the two female colleagues…. ‘The chemistry is right. Admittedly, Mohammad is a proud person, but very attentive and prudent. He even helps with the clean-up,’ says Ilona Fugmann.” Of course, “proud” is a euphemism for “prideful,” which reflects a sin (though Muslims don’t see it that way) and basically means Mohammad had more ego than brains and was easily “triggered.” Speaking of which…. Fugmann is quoted as mentioning the difficulty in finding good help and asking, “Why shouldn’t I give him a chance?” I’m guessing her question has been answered, which brings us to the second piece: Herzberg: Syrian hairstylist slits boss’s throat …June 29, 2017 HERZBERG A bloody deed horrified Herzberg (Elbe-Elster) on Wednesday. A salon owner was attacked by her Syrian employee, and gravely injured. He was regarded the paramount example of successful integration. The Syrian Mohammad H. (39), a master hairstylist who had fled his homeland, started a new life and found work in Herzberg. He was appreciated and popular in the salon of Ilona F. (64). This makes what happened yesterday, Wednesday, even stranger. Yes, strange, unfathomable, unprecedented! Who could’ve seen this coming? And if you suggest otherwise on social media, the German government will arrest you and fine the “Islamophobia” out of the social-media company. You will be absorbed. In fact, the only successful integration occurring is that of many Germans, who’ve been integrated into delusion. All people are the same, you see, and our strength lies in our diversity, I tell ya’. “I’m smart! Not like everybody says… like dumb….!” Except it is dumb believing that all people — and peoples — are the same. We can argue the reasons for the differences, but we ignore them at our peril. As Col. Ralph Peters put it in the excellent little piece“Taliban from Outer Space,” “In my years as an intelligence officer, I saw colleagues make the same blunder over and over: They rushed to stress the ways in which the Russians, the Chinese or the Iranians were ‘just like us.’ It’s the differences that kill you, though.” He later wrote, “[W]e still hear the deadly cliché that ‘all human beings want the same basic things, such as better lives and greater opportunities for their children.’ How does that apply to Afghan aliens who prefer their crude way of life and its merciless cults?” What’s deadly here is something I often warn of: projection. This is when we ascribe our mindset, priorities and sense of virtue to others. It’s natural. We behave in certain ways because we think it makes sense, so it must make sense to others, too. Thus are the self-serving cynical, believing everyone is just “out for himself”; thus are innocent little children gullible, thinking everyone well-meaning — and thus do secular Westerners believe that, well, of course these new arrivals will embrace secular “values.” And that’s the ideological chauvinism lurking in the hearts of the oh-so open-minded, who once warned of “ethnocentrism.” But why would others adopt “secular Western ‘values,’” including confusion over marriage, sex and right and wrong (Truth) itself? Because they’re so self-evidently true? Realize that some people have an alien sense of virtue (Western leftists are a good example). Some really do believe that slaughtering innocents in Allah’s name is good — that burning people alive, baking them in ovens, drowning them in cages and feeding children into a dough kneader — wins you Paradise. Remember, our weakness lies in our diversity. Contact Selwyn Duke, follow him on Twitter or log on to SelwynDuke.com __________________________
Gang Takes Over California Church As Congregation Runs In Fear Posted by Asia Mayfield | Jun 21, 2017 A South Los Angeles church has morphed into a home base for a bunch of thugs calling themselves the Latino Playboys. Congregants are terrified; sermons have been interrupted. Congregants of a South Los Angeles church are being harassed by a gang. Vicious members of the Latino Playboys established a stronghold on church property after deluding Pastor Kenneth Little into trusting them. Now worshipers attending Ebenezer Baptist Church fear for their lives during service. Bible study sessions have been rattled by gunshots. “This is an extremely dangerous situation for everyone in the community, from church congregants to the kids that go to the neighboring schools and park,” City Attorney Mike Feuer said. “We hope to work with the church to eliminate the source of danger and make this a neighborhood where people can conduct affairs safely every day.” Pastor Little is helpless. He’s been forced to watch as his church is slowly devoured by violence. The situation has grown so desperate that L.A. officials have filed a lawsuit against the church, claiming that the gang members flocking to church property are defiling the neighborhood. Over the past year, there have been a whopping five shootings on the property, as well as numerous other complaints.
Pastor Little has had to adopt extreme measures to protect his flock. The gang’s presence is so palpable that the church doors are behind a heavy steel gate. According to the Los Angeles Times: “In September, a person standing out front was shot and killed. In March, two people in the property’s parking lot opened fire on a truck carrying rival gang members. And from December to April, undercover agents purchased 20 illegal firearms, three silencers and 122 grams of methamphetamine there…” It’s horrific that a sacred space has been so violated. Gang violence is a term that should never appear in the same sentence as the church. People who want to express their love and devotion to God should be allowed to do so without being molested by thugs. “I am grateful they (police officers) stepped in because I didn’t know what to do,” Little told reporters. “They can move forward in a manner that we weren’t able to do.”
South L.A. is a rough, crime-ridden neighborhood. Churches are beacons of hope. Thousands of people might benefit if the local gangs were eradicated. The Latino Playboys are a violent group of men composed of illegal immigrants and Hispanic Americans. The gang is notorious for their brutality, The violence associated with gang culture is why President Trump’s proposed border wall is so important. It’s illegal to cross into America without a proper visa. Those who are willing to make the dangerous journey are those who are at least somewhat comfortable with the idea of committing a crime. That’s why there are a disproportionally large amount of criminals among the illegals sneaking across the border. If illegal immigration is allowed to continue unchecked gangs will continue to grow more powerful. Criminal gangs thrive on the blood of illegals, people who have nothing to lose. During ex-President Obama’s reign in office, crossing the border was so easy that thousands of deported illegals hopped right back into America.
“This is a neighborhood that really needs our help,” Feuer said. “You can keep coming and arresting, but that’s not the same as preventing the problem in the future from recurring.” The only way to prevent gang violence from occurring is to prevent criminal cells from forming. As long as illegals are continuing to stream across the border, gangs will still be in existence. The LAPD are now heavily involved in Pastor Little’s church. Officers helped the city file its lawsuit against the gang plaguing Little’s congregation. Law enforcement officers report that the gang operating out of Ebenezer Church property calls themselves the Latino Playboys. They’re cruel, heartless, and dangerous. Their proximity endangers not only Pastor Little but every single congregant who comes to hear his sermon. Feuer says that the best way to remedy the situation includes “…evicting the tenants and fencing off the property…(and) an internet-connected video monitoring system and better lighting on the site.” The city has to step in. The church lacks the funds to properly defend itself. __________________________
Intel Chair Sends Liberals Running On Obama Admin Investigation: “Oh, This Is Only The Beginning” Posted by Georgette Walrath | Jun 7, 2017 | Liberal Corruption Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Select Intelligence Committee says that the subpoenas are “Just the beginning.” Although the main focus of the liberal media outlets recently is the allegations about Russian election tampering, the real story they’re ignoring is the unmasking investigationbeing carried out by the House Select Intelligence Committee. The spear-phishing campaign conducted last fall is small potatoes compared to the requests concerning unmasking activity perpetrated by top-level Obama-ites. Susan Rice, CIA Director Brennan, and Samantha Power were all recently named in subpoenas requesting details about the practice. Trump agrees. He tweeted back in April about it, and it looks like he’s right again.
In a recent interview, Chairman of the House Select Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes explained the reasoning behind the subpoenas. He also spoke about why they are seeking information about possible abuses of power during the final stages of the Obama administration’s tenure. Nunes also mentioned the possibility of this being just the beginning.
Nunes explained that the subpoenas actually went to the CIA, NSA, and FBI, requesting that those agencies answer for the “unmaskings” performed by select, high-level officials during the entire 2016 year, continuing until January 20; the day Trump took office. Although Nunes stated that he couldn’t delve into the reasons those individuals were subpoenaed, he did clarify his concerns. Susan Rice faces allegations of the politically motivated unmasking of American citizens. Unmasking is a process where during routine surveillance of foreign targets, Americans come up in conversations. The key here is “foreign.” Rice faces allegations of unmasking U.S. citizens who were close to then-candidate Trump.
If officials want to know the name of the person included in security reports, typically slated as U.S. person #1, #2, etc., a specific request can be made to have the identity “unmasked.” Although liberals are suggesting that the process is somewhat common in foreign surveillance, the question investigators want answered is whether top Obama administrators exceeded their authority in doing it. Since the bulk of the requests came after Trump had been declared president-elect, unmasking U.S. citizens before relinquishing power seems, at the least, troubling. Concerns surfaced when it was discovered that national security advisor Susan Rice requested that a number of Trump’s associates be revealed. Rice has denied that the requests were politically motivated. The full extent of the surveillance conducted by the Obama administration on American citizens, right after Trump was elected, is unknown. That is what the House Select Intelligence Committee wants to find out. Nunes explained that unmasking is “actually very uncommon, and seldom happens,” despite the mainstream media’s attempt to make the process seem like a regular, normal occurrence. Having waited since March 15 for the information requested, Nunes confirmed that the subpoenas were issued because “intelligence agencies have been slow-rolling” the council.
When asked if Rice, Brennan, and Power were the only officials of interest, Nunes said that they were the people the council has “particular interest in,” but there may be others. That is something the liberal press doesn’t want to hear. Explaining that Obama officials, at minimum committed clearly an “abuse of power” by unmasking American citizens, Nunes proposed that other concerns of illegal activity need to be sifted through too. Not only were the names unethically unmasked by Obama officials, the intelligence was leaked to the media. When talking about former national security advisor Michael Flynn, who was unmasked and leaked during the Obama term, Nunes said he couldn’t confirm the media stories surrounding Flynn. The former FBI director turned over recordsrequested by the committee last week. Nunes cautiously explained that the committee is trying to get to the bottom of any illegal activities that the Obama administration may have committed. This includes unmasking and leaking U.S. names to the press, saying “It’s a crime to do that.” The former ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, is also included in the unmasking scandal. When asked about why Power was included in the search, Nunes explained that it is “very unusual” for an ambassador to make such unmasking requests, regardless of where the person is serving. Power is a long-time friend of Obama who served as ambassador to the UN from 2013 to 2017. He indicated that although he couldn’t provide specifics, “we would not be asking this if we didn’t have probable cause that there was an abuse of power.” Nunes said he didn’t know if FBI Director Comey had obstructed the unmasking investigation, but he did explain that the agencies have continued to ignore congress’s request for information. John Brennan has been reluctant to hand over the information requested by Congress, he and other agency officials have until the end of the day to comply. Nunes said that at this point, extending the very necessary Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is in jeopardy. The programs are instrumental in protecting Americans, but because of Obama administration abuses, uncertainty means that the votes aren’t there to reinstate them. Nunes frankly said that the three original suspects are “just the beginning,” saying that there are “many more officials” that the committee has concerns about abusing intelligence programs. The subpoenas compel the CIA, FBI, and NSA to deliver the requested information to Congress today. __________________________
BREAKING: 46 Shot, 6 Dead – Trump Issues Powerful Response Our country is currently seeing all-too-frequent instances of violence. In most cases, these instances have to do with the violent Left-wingers, and President Trump has had ENOUGH! 46 people were shot, and six of those people have died. It sounds like a mass shooting incident, and it is, but not what you think. These numbers reflect the shootings in Chicago over Independence Day weekend. The President is sick of it, and the feds are in route to stop the violence once and for all, according to Reuters. The crime rate in Chicago is out of hand. The numbers are SLIGHTLY less than they were last year, but still, violence is RAMPANT there. Federal assistance is NEEDED to regain control of the city because elected officials there have no clue how to do it. Trump expressed his frustration by first taking to Twitter. He sent out a tweet that reads, “Crime and killing in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1715 shootings in Chicago this year!” Regardless of where you align politically, the statistics behind this claim cannot be ignored. Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke with FOX News about Trump’s plans to help repair Chicago. The President has some fantastic plans that entail exactly what the city needs to slowly change back to a place where residents can feel safe again. The first thing on the agenda is to weed out all illegal gun activity and stop it. There is NO REASON to own a gun illegally — unless your goal is to bring violence without the chance of consequences. Cracking down on illegal guns is going to be a crucial first step in disarming the gangs. It is hard to say how many people they will arrest after the illegal firearms have been taken off the street. There is no doubt that by removing these illegal weapons from the city, things will start to improve. The next goal is to expunge the gangs from the city’s streets. These people claim blocks and will fight each other to DEATH over it, and it doesn’t make any sense. Realistically they have nothing to gain or lose, is it worth losing their lives? The answer, of course, is no. The police have to also step-up and be willing to act in a pro-active manner that benefits the people of the City of Chicago instead of hobbling themselves to progressivism and political correctness. The Black Lives Matters movement has instilled a ton of hate into the community. The only way to turn that hate around is to gain the trust of the community again. We expect the change in the city to occur rapidly. The criminal elements will, no doubt, be shocked at the initial attempt by law enforcement to reclaim the city, but it will raise the moral of all the law abiding in the mentally bruised city. The people there need reassurance that they matter and that steps are being taken to make life safer for the people who live there, and for generations to come. ___________________________
Baltimore Citizens Unite To Restore Order As Democrat Mayor Abandons City Posted by Layla Velasquez Jun 28, 2017 Former Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is at the center of a lawsuit for her poor leadership during the 2015 Baltimore riots. In the 2015 riots in Baltimore, after the death of Freddy Gray, dozens of businesses and citizens lost property and livelihoods as the protestors took to the street, and city officials did little to stop them. Now, those businesses are fighting back, with a lawsuit aimed at the city, saying that the officials didn’t do enough to protect them. Estimates are that the riots accumulated about $13 million in damages citywide and affected 380 businesses. The lawsuit is nearly 700 pages long, and has more than 60 plaintiffs. According to the litigation, then Mayor Rawlings-Blake took too long to sign an executive order to implement the emergency plan that would allow the riots to be stopped. Emergency plans included a citywide curfew, and the Maryland National Guard. But, it was all too late. “Widespread rioting was well underway, and much of the property that the executive order was passed to protect was already being destroyed,” they write.
The lawsuit cites the timeline following the death of Gray, and details the different memos and warnings that the city had regarding the potential for violence. Gray died in police custody after officers failed to restrain him in a seatbelt. This incited racial tensions, and became a rallying cry for police brutality. It also claims that the day of Freddie Gray’s funeral, the Baltimore police were told in a report, “Looting is expected. Let it happen.” On April 27, 2015, the city of Baltimore was subjected to widespread looting, multiple buildings were burned, and vehicles were set to flame. The police followed orders and did little to stop it. Two liquor store owners say they were inside their store, when a wave of about 20-30 rioters entered the building and began banging on the windows with pipes and crow bars. Someone in the community chased them off. But, then a second wave resulted, where close to 150 people entered the shop, and began looting and destroying the inside. __________________________
Sharia law in Idaho. The three Muslim refugee boys who plead guilty in the heinous sexual attack of a five-year-old girl in Idaho were sentenced yesterday. No jail time. The judge barred everyone in the courtroom, including the victim’s own parents, from speaking about the case and threatened anyone with serious consequences if they violated his edict. Unheard of. The sexual assault occurred at Fawnbrook Apartments, in Twin Falls, when a 5-year-old was lured into a laundry room, stripped of her clothing, urinated on, and orally and anally raped while the oldest boy filmed the entire incident. Now, following a sentencing hearing Monday at the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center in Twin Falls, Judge Thomas Borresen of Idaho’s 5th Judicial District issued a gag order barring everyone in the courtroom from talking about it. The victim’s lawyer is facing contempt charges because of a benign comment he made to the Idaho Statesman about the parents’ unhappiness with the verdict. Mathew Staver, chairman and co-founder of the nonprofit legal assistance agency Liberty Counsel, told WND that Judge Borresen was completely out of line in issuing a gag order after the fact in a criminal case. “It’s unconstitutional for the judge to do that. There are gag orders that can be put on people during a jury trial, or if it’s a minor they can prohibit you from mentioning the name of the minor, but they can’t gag you after the fact,” Staver said. “This is public at this point. This judge, it just seems like he’s forgotten about the First Amendment in this case. He has no authority to do this, he can’t hold someone in contempt to keep them from speaking out about their displeasure with the case after the fact.” Staver said case law is clear on the subject of gag orders.
Judge Thomas BorresenIDAHO INJUSTICE TRAVESTY: MIGRANT ATTACKERS OF 5-YEAR-OLD UNPUNISHED EXCLUSIVE: PAMELA GELLER SAYS OFFICIALS SACRIFICED GIRL’S WELL-BEING TO PROTECT MUSLIM BOYSThe travesty of justice in Idaho is now complete. In the summer of 2016, a 5-year-old girl was sexually assaulted and urinated upon by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls, Idaho. Since then, instead of getting justice, the victim’s family has been abused by law enforcement and governing authorities as if they were the criminals – because what happened to their little girl contradicts the politically correct narrative about Muslim migrants. On Monday, the perpetrators were sentenced, and the final injustice was done to this poor girl. The injustice began in the proceedings at the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center in Twin Falls when Judge Thomas Borreson of Idaho’s 5th Judicial District ordered the little victim’s parents to say nothing to anyone – ever – about what was said in the courtroom Monday, or to disclose the sentence he gave to the savage attackers. He did allow them to say that they were unhappy with the sentencing, but threatened to jail them for contempt of court if they disclosed why they were unhappy with itBut even though the victim’s parents were not allowed to talk to me, there were 12 to 15 people in the courtroom who saw and heard the whole sorry business. I was informed of what happened by an anonymous source inside the courtroom – and the more I heard, the more I understood why this judge wanted to keep all the proceedings secret. Janice Kroeger, the senior deputy prosecuting attorney, who was supposed to be trying these boys for their crimes, defended the boys and repeatedly attacked Lacy, the victim’s mother. A therapist for the boys was present, as well as a parole officer and a detective. Everything that was said was designed to portray the perpetrators as victims. Throughout the proceedings, they were repeatedly called victims, and the youngest one was called “the biggest victim of them all.” The court heard all about how the attackers are doing well in school, and about how smart they are. They were praised for the supposed ordeal they had to go through. It was claimed that all three are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from having to go through courtroom proceedings. After this lovefest, which lasted for five hours in the courtroom, all three boys were sentenced, one after the other. All three were given probation. They were not found guilty of rape, but of sexually lewd conduct. In the midst of this judicial mugging, every time Lacy’s lawyer tried to speak up, he was silenced. The little victim, Jayla, was never even mentioned once by Kroeger or the judge – or by the police or anyone else. Only Lacy mentioned her, when she made her statement. Lacy detailed how the poor girl is still suffering the effects of this attack: She is wetting the bed and having bad dreams, and more. Yet when Lacy completed her statement, Kroeger lashed out not at the perpetrators or their parents, but at Lacy. She viciously tongue-lashed Lacy for a full 15 minutes, until finally Judge Borreson had to stop her. Understandably, the parents of the victim were and are devastated. Back in April, when the attackers initially pleaded guilty, Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs said: “I am pleased that we were able to resolve this case in a way that was approved and agreed to by the victim’s family. This continues to be a serious and sad case, but it was resolved properly.” Nothing could be further from the truth. The resolution of the case was not accepted by the victim’s family, and it was not resolved properly. From the beginning to the end, for Idaho officials this case was about one thing, and one thing only: not justice for this poor little girl who was brutalized and abused, but about making sure that Americans don’t start to realize what is happening and oppose the Muslim migrant influx. Idaho officials were willing to sacrifice this girl’s well-being for that goal – to their everlasting shame. If there were any justice, Judge Borreson would be impeached and removed now. Meanwhile, please help the victim and her family meet their considerable expenses: Contribute here. Read more at _______________________
