MORE DEEP STATE CRIMES: Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray LIED TO TRUMP and Congress– Said He Was Not Under Investigation

In April 2018 Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Trump in a private meeting that he was not a target of “any part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

The meeting took place in early 2018 and Rosenstein, who brought up the investigations himself, offered the assurance during a meeting with Trump at the White House

Narcissism: Why It's So Rampant in Politics

Consider that two of the things narcissists most desire are money (i.e., lots of money) and power (the more the better). And these two assets can be tightly interwoven. Consider also that many of the individuals entering the political arena have already made their fortune, or inherited it. So what typically drives them is a lust for power, prestige, status, and authority. These (let's call them) "objects of admiration" not only gratify their need for self-aggrandizement by feeding their oversized ego. They also provide them with compelling evidence to confirm their sense of superiority to others—probably their most coveted need of all.

Feinstein Ban on Semiautos Deliberately Undermines ‘Security of a Free State’

The mask if off for all but those who refuse to see. This is not about “common sense gun safety” or protecting children or anything other than evil creatures in positions of power doing the bidding of those who would see the people disarmed. This is about nullifying any chance of opposition to their agenda of complete domination and control. -- A more proper name reflecting on the sponsors of this proposed Intolerable Act would be “The We're Anti-American Traitors Act of 2019.”

ATF Bump Stock Rule Demonstrates the Dangers Inherent in Administrative Actions

If Trump and the DOJ-ATF are allowed to get away with this subterfuge, then it is but a small step from a total ban on “bump stocks” to a total ban on all semiautomatic firearms, since rate of fire—utilized as the salient and subjective basis for elimination of firearms in the hands of civilians—will now provide the “ammunition” antigun zealots can and will latch onto in their unyielding zeal to continue to weaken the Second Amendment. And it is Trump, now, not Schumer or Pelosi, who has given them a vehicle they can and will use to destroy at once the citizen’s best means of self-defense and destroy, as well, the one truly capable defense in the citizen’s possession, to prevent or at least deter the onset of tyranny.

Marco Rubio's Israel anti-boycott law is an attack on free speech

These are divisive times. But Americans should be able to agree on at least one issue: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) shouldn't be the arbiter of what political expression is or isn't allowed in America.

Rubio is leading the effort to pass the "Combating BDS Act," a law that would give the federal imprimatur to state and local governments that pass laws against giving government contracts to individuals and companies that boycott the State of Israel in opposition to its policies regarding the Palestinian territories.

That act — part of a larger package of measures regarding Middle East policy — suffered a setback this week, thanks to a Democratic filibuster. But Rubio and the anti-boycott movement aren't done.

FORMER SECRET SERVICE AGENT SLAPS LAWSUIT ON CLINTONS, PODESTA AND MORE

Former Secret Service Agent Gary J. Byrne, an outspoken critic of the Clintons since he left the White House and their employ, has filed a RICO lawsuit against former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a list of others.

The nature of the suit, according to the filed documents, is “racketeer-influenced and corrupt organizations.”

In addition to the Clintons, Byrne names a number of Clinton associates and supporters as defendants, including:

Clinton Foundation
Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership
Media Matters For America
Correct the Record
American Bridge 21st Century

David Brock
George Soros
John Podesta

Byrne also names fellow veteran Secret Service Agent and CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Jonathan Wackrow as a defendant in the suit.

'Serial predator': L.A. writer has been sounding alarm on Ed Buck for over a year

When authorities in Los Angeles found Timothy Dean dead in the apartment of Ed Buck, a Democratic activist and campaign donor, early Monday morning, Jasmyne Cannick was not surprised. Just six months ago, Cannick had posted a warning on Twitter that something like this might happen.

“If another young, Black gay man overdoses or worse dies at Democratic donor Ed Buck’s apartment it’s going to be the fault of the sheriff’s dept and L.A. District Atty for not stopping him when they had the opportunity to,” Cannick wrote on Twitter in late July.

The Outrageous Assault on the Knights of Columbus

Kamala Harris is set to announce her candidacy for president sometime around Martin Luther King Jr. Day. What sort of chief executive would she be? Well, here's your first clue: On December 5, Harris posed a series of written questions to Brian Buescher, President Trump's nominee for District Court in Nebraska. The third question reads as follows:

Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.' Mr. Anderson went on to say that ‘abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale.' Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman's right to choose when you joined the organization?

TRUMP DRINKS AT THE WRONG BARR!

President Donald J. Trump, much to his credit, does not frequent bars, as he admittedly does not drink alcohol. But in listening again to bad advice from establishment Republicans by nominating former George H.W. Bush Attorney General (AG) William “Bill” Barr to replace the cowardly and now disgraced Jeff Sessions, he clearly has swallowed the proverbial Kool-Aid. And, with the forced impending resignation of Sessions’ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, just when it looked like the president was extricating himself from the swamp, he has fallen back into its dark and murky waters.

‘Israel has never been so divisive in modern political history’ — anti-BDS bill fails again in Senate

Israel has never been so openly politicized in the United States as it is right now. Yesterday afternoon Senate Democrats voted to block the progress of a bill that would punish those who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. It was the second time in three days that the Democrats joined together on that procedural vote, saying that the shutdown should come first.

Democrats are expressing the fear that the party will split over Israel, just as Republicans want. The Senate leadership has indicated that it will push the bill again soon in an effort to show which party cares about Israel and which party is harboring “anti-semitic” and “racist” forces, in the words of Colorado Senator Cory Gardner.

The anti-boycott bill has gotten wide coverage, from Common Dreams to Vox, where Zack Beauchamp’s excellent explainer on the legislation concludes by citing the pro-Palestinian attitudes among young progressive Americans in polls.

To Israel ‘the mere existence’ of a Palestinian Muslim Congresswoman is a menace

One of the founding myths of Israel is the non-existence of the Palestinian people. Tragically this myth served the country to great effect especially in denying the return of refugees (750,000, half the population) to their country following their expulsion in 1948 and in continually hindering the Palestinian people’s progress into a sovereign, independent state. Nothing threatens this myth more than a Palestinian refugee reasserting their identity and offering themselves as a constant reminder of Israel’s past sins. Their mere existence is a menace.

Jake Tapper Turns Kamala Harris Into Stuttering Fool After Exposing Her Shady Past On Live TV (Video)

That old news will come out as soon as she announces, don’t worry, but it was another skeleton that Jake Tapper dragged out of her closet on live TV that is even more damaging to her future campaign and position as the leader of the #metoo movement.

Look, her closest aide was a scumbag to women and he got caught and while Kamala is trying to play dumb – there was a settlement of $400,000 paid out and as the head of the department, it begs belief that she didn’t know.

Enter Jake Tapper who actually did his job for a change and held her to account. Kamala tries to squirm and do the DC two-step but it is clear she is vulnerable on this issue and that no one believes her denials.

NeoCons Test Drive Newest Weapon to Crush Indie Media, Put MintPress in Their Crosshairs

The website [MintPress] does not disclose its liberal bent. For example, a January 2019 story was titled, “New Senate anti-BDS Bill Unconstitutional and Ineffective at Curbing Boycotts.” … Would you like to comment about making any political leanings transparent to online readers? — Question submitted by Newsguard to MintPress News

A recently founded venture claiming to be “a news rating agency” is making its big breakout in 2019 by claiming to be an authority at the forefront in the fight against “fake news.” Newsguard — which describes itself as an organization dedicated to “restoring trust and accountability” and using “journalism to fight false news, misinformation, and disinformation” — has begun targeting independent and alternative media organizations, including MintPress News, with a questionnaire developed to frame its victims as being on the political fringe and lacking professionalism and journalistic integrity in order to rank them as “unreliable” news sites.

Jennie Kamin, a reporter for Newsguard as well as an associate producer at CBS News, contacted me on Monday with a list of eight loaded questions that were crafted to put me on the defensive and undermine MintPress’ credibility from the get-go. Not only that, but the questions also frame MintPress as having a secret agenda aimed at hiding its ownership and funding.

Mideast Fact Meets Fiction: Mike Pompeo Touts US Goodness and Threatens More of It
Pompeo’s speech seems to have been a not-so-subtle means of putting the entire Mideast region and world on notice that the U.S. is poised to initiate a new era of military intervention in the Middle East in order to “liberate” nations that continue to resist U.S. influence and regional hegemony.

During a speech given Thursday at Cairo’s American University, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered remarks that some analysts have likened to a mix of evangelism and historical revisionism regarding the U.S.’ historical role in Middle Eastern and Northern African affairs.

Pompeo began his speech by stating:

"It’s the truth, lower-case ‘t’, that I’m here to talk about today. It is a truth that isn’t often spoken in this part of the world, but because I’m a military man by training, I’ll be very blunt and direct today: America is a force for good in the Middle East.”

Prior to his speech, at an earlier press conference, Pompeo made a similarly jarring characterization of U.S. involvement in the Middle East, stating:

America has always been a liberating force, not an occupying power, in the Middle East. We’ve never dreamed of domination....”

THINGS DEMOCRATS HAVE FUNDED THAT COST MORE THAN THE BORDER WALL

After President Trump requested $5.7 billion to fund the border wall he campaigned on in 2016, Democrats have dug in, refusing to appropriate the funds that the administration says are needed to better manage the flow of immigration across the southern border.

Democrats are not traditionally known for their fiscal rectitude but are being particularly parsimonious over what ultimately amounts to a very small percentage of the federal budget. (In 2018, the feds spent $4.173 trillion overall, meaning the border wall would amount to just 1/10th of 1 percent of current annual federal spending.)

Indeed, these lawmakers have happily funded various projects over the years that cost far more than the border wall — many of which had very questionable value. Below are some examples of wasteful federal spending projects that individually cost more than the proposed border wall (some data courtesy of Citizens Against Government Waste):

Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.

The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.

Attorney Rudy Giuliani said President Donald Trump’s team of attorneys should be permitted to “correct” special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report before it is released to Congress and to the public.

His comments came Thursday during an interview with The Hill. He maintained Mueller’s investigators should first give the report to Trump’s lawyers for review.

“As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you — so we can correct it if they’re wrong,” said Giuliani, a member of Trump's personal legal team. “They’re not God, after all. They could be wrong.”

Judicial Watch Seeks to Question Top Obama-Clinton Officials on Clinton Email Issue, Seeks Depositions of Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes on Benghazi Talking Points Documents

Judicial Watch announced today that it submitted a court-ordered discovery plan for the depositions of several top former government officials involved in the Clinton email scandal, including Obama administration senior officials Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Jacob Sullivan, and FBI official E.W. Priestap.

Judicial Watch “intends to update the Court regarding the depositions of Hillary Clinton and Cheryl Mills at the conclusion of the 16-week discovery period, unless the Court believes such notice is not necessary.”

The plan for discovery is the latest development in Judicial Watch’s July 2014 FOIA lawsuit filed after the U.S. Department of State failed to respond to a May 13, 2014 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).

DNC Chair Won't Say 'What Changed' From 2006 or 2013 When Dems Voted for Border Security

On Wednesday morning, Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked DNC Chair Tom Perez "what changed" to convince Democrats who voted for increased border security in 2006 and 2013 to resolutely oppose President Donald Trump on a wall now. Perez did not answer the question, and attempted to combat the idea that the difference has more to do with personality than policy.

"You passed a lot of bills. [In] 2013, [Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)] voted for more border security. [Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)] voted for more border security. [Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)] voted for it. 2006, Hillary Clinton voted for it, Barack Obama voted for it; Schumer voted for it again going back 12 years," Hemmer noted.

"The Democrats believe in meaningful border security," Perez admitted. "I'm proud of the work I did under Barack Obama to make sure that we were securing our borders and countering violent extremism at home."

Muslim group sues to block 'No Boycott of Israel' measure

Maryland's ban on contracting with businesses that boycott Israel tramples on the First Amendment rights of a software engineer who advocates for Palestinians, a Muslim civil rights group claims in a lawsuit filed Wednesday.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations' federal lawsuit seeks to block the state from enforcing an executive order that Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan signed in October 2017.

The order requires contractors to certify in writing that they don't boycott Israel. The group's suit claims the order has an unconstitutional chilling effect on First Amendment-protected political advocacy supporting the Palestinians.
