AOC Beclowns Herself By Begging to Be Sworn In at Congressional Hearing, Repeats Wild Claims Without Evidence

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., makes an objection to a Republican argument as the House Oversight and Reform Committee considers whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents related to the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, June 12, 2019.

You know Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings’ committee is really serious business when they call in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib as expert witnesses on the border. That’s where we are in our legislative process these days.

This stems from wild claims that AOC made a few weeks ago involving her visit to a border facility in El Paso, TX. While there, she claimed not only that the Border Patrol agents physically and sexually threatened her, but that she witnessed a woman being told to drink out of the toilet.

As per usual with the freshman Congressional member, this all turned out to be nonsense. Later, we would learn that she didn’t even actually enter the actual detention facility, instead choosing to stage a photo-op by verbally abusing the guards and then insisting she stay with a family at the beginning of the tour. At no point did she actually witness someone being told to drink out of the toilet and we’ve still yet to hear the names of these agents who supposedly threatened her.

The fact that she was proven to be completely full of it regarding her claims about her trip to the border didn’t stop Rep. Cummings from dragging in front of his committee anyway to repeat her lies all over again.

That led to this bizarre, ridiculous scene.

You’ve got to give her this. She’s a good actor and she’s keen to the fact that the media will eat this up (which they promptly did).

There was absolutely no reason for her to be sworn in here. Congressional members don’t get sworn in and it’s against the law to lie to Congress whether you raise your right hand or not. This was all pure theatrics on her part.

She would of course go on to lie again about women drinking out of the toilets, something she’s provided no evidence of and had no witnesses to confirm. Then we got this c-level writing from whatever staff member wrote her remarks for her.

“What’s worse, Mr. Chairman, was the fact that there were American flags hanging all over these facilities,” she said. “That children were being separated from their parents in front of the American flag, that women were being called these names under an American flag, we cannot allow for this.”

AOC saw children being separated from their parents in front of an American flag? When? It certainly wasn’t when she visited the CBP facility in El Paso as initial processing was not part of her tour that she didn’t even take. We also see her make the claim that women are being verbally abused, again providing no evidence or witnesses.

In the end, it’s all about the photo-op for AOC.

Bob Malak is referring to AOC’s previous visit to the border in 2018 where she pretended to cry in front of a fence with nothing on the other side. But don’t worry, Snopes has assured us it was actually completely legit despite wide angle shots showing her surrounded by cameras and doing different poses.

This is what AOC is all about. Doing actual work is simply not her thing. She got elected simply to elevate her profile and she’s shown herself to be a manipulative, conniving individual who will do anything to push a preferred narrative.

“Time and time again, she chooses photo-ops over actually legislating. Just look at today’s hearing. She asked to be sworn in prior to testifying before the Oversight Committee — something that never happens for members of Congress,” they added. “But that doesn’t matter to her. She just needed something to tweet. It just shows that Democrats are obsessed with political theater and attacking the president, rather than solving real problems facing the American people.”

Thankfully, it’s not just Republicans who are growing tired of this stupidity. Democrats are starting to push back on her as well and things are only devolving further into chaos within their caucus. No one should have sympathy for them though. They created this monster by embracing AOC’s insanity early on for perceived political gain. Now, they get to reap the whirlwind.

A Viral Photo of Children at Detention Facilities Got Blamed on Trump, Reality Tells a Different Story

This is what, the 4th or 5th time a photo of kids at the border has gone viral that ended up not telling the real story? In this case, the misleading was clearly intentional though, as you’ll see.

A picture of children sleeping with aluminum thermal blankets on the floor of a CBP detention facility made the rounds this weekend. It was posted by someone named Nancy Lee Grahn. Apparently I’m supposed to know who she is because she’s on TV and has a blue check-mark, but admittedly, I’ve never heard of her.

Here’s the original tweet, which is still up.

The immediate judgement was that Donald Trump personally drove there and forced the kids to sleep on the floor just because he’s that evil. The left exploded over the photos and it’s still going today. She even pinned it on her timeline.

The problem? This was once again a picture from the Obama administration. In fact, the date stamp is in the picture but Grahn cropped it out.

Have you every noticed that almost every problematic photo of the border situation that’s went viral in the last year has ended up being from the Obama administration? Funny how that works. Yet, time and time again, the media and Twitter-verse outright lie about the genesis to throw partisan mud.

To be fair to Obama though, it’s hardly “torture” to give thermal blankets to children after they’ve been apprehended as unaccompanied minors. What else is CBP supposed to do with them initially? Put them up at a Holiday Inn in Phoenix? They are caught on the border, away from civilization and have to be cared for immediately. Bunk beds and playgrounds aren’t readily available at that point in the process. That’s not initial, it’s just the reality on the ground.

The lack of rationality in this debate is just mind-numbing. CBP is doing everything it can with the resources it has to take care of illegal immigrants who are caught. You can not simply dump children on the street corner in the interior. They have to be held, checked out, and placed in homes. That means time in a detention facility. It’s not ideal, but it’s the reality of the situation. No one is purposely hurting kids. These are caring, career law enforcement officials that are on the front lines. They aren’t the Waffen SS running “concentration camps” or any other ridiculous nonsense that’s been propagated lately.

That’s not to say today’s facilities aren’t having issues. these facilities are waning in quality because of a lack of funding, which Democrats steadfastly refuse to provide while they virtue signal their disapproval of the conditions. The game they are playing is simply perverse and no one but right-wing outlets will even bother to call them on it.

This problem could be fixed next week if the mainstream media stopped playing politics and started actually holding Democrats accountable for their obstruction on this. But they won’t. We’ll instead continue to go around in circles because this is too politically advantageous of an issue for Democrats to actually do their jobs.

ISIS “Beatles” From the UK Just Want to Come Home, Now Asking for the U.S. to Try Them

Westlake Legal Group isis-tunisia-620x348 ISIS “Beatles” From the UK Just Want to Come Home, Now Asking for the U.S. to Try Them Unrepentant United States United Kingdom Tortue Terrorism radical Islam Politics murder media bias lying Islam ISIS Beatles ISIS Hostage Takers Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story CNN

Crazy what facing certain death will do for these cowards. It’s all fun and games until a tribunal in Baghdad is ready to hang you.

CNN decided to interview a pair monsters named Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh. The interview is you typical kid gloves presentation, including attempts to further humanize them as broken and “drained.” Killing people will do that I guess.

Two of the remaining members of the British ISIS cell known as “the Beatles” have confessed their part in the ransoming of Western hostages in a rare interview that showed them broken and pleading for news of their fate. One of the fighters also offered an unprecedented apology for his actions with the group.

Kotey and Elsheikh are from the United Kingdom and joined ISIS as part of a group known as “the Beatles,” which included the now deceased “Jahidi John.” He was killed back in 2015 and infamously appeared in videos beheading western hostages.

To show how serious they are, one of them won’t even apologize for his role in the killings.

Kotey — whose year mostly in solitary confinement appears to have removed the arrogance he displayed when interviewed by CNN a year ago — declined to offer an apology. But he admitted taking email addresses from European hostages and assisting in the ransom negotiations that followed with relatives and friends.

“I was a fighter,” Kotey said. “Extracting from them email addresses for communications. For example, if it was a proof of life question, something that only they would be able to answer.” Asked why he agreed to this task, he replied: “It just so happened that way.”

If that doesn’t scream remorseful, what does?

Regardless, it shouldn’t matter if they now feel remorse. They joined a foreign terrorist army and helped facilitate in the murders of hostages. Furthermore, they won’t even fully admit to what they did, instead choosing to gaslight everyone by claiming they had no part in the murders or tortue.

The pair currently being held in Syria are accused of torturing the hostages they kept in their care. The US State Department has accused Kotey, 35, originally from Ladbroke Grove in London, of having “likely engaged in the group’s executions and exceptionally cruel torture” of their Western journalist and aid worker hostages. Elsheikh “was said to have earned a reputation for water-boarding, mock executions, and crucifixions,” according to the State Department.

The men denied involvement in the murders and physical abuse of hostages, saying they had been transferred to another unit before the violence began. Several former hostages however, have said they were tortured by masked British-accented men matching their descriptions.

Ricardo Garcia Vilanova, a Spanish photographer imprisoned by the group for about six months before his release in 2014, told CNN: “I was tortured in an ISIS jail by masked men with British accents. Many other of my fellow prisoners were too, and some didn’t survive captivity. We would want that they see justice for what they did.”

The claim that they simply didn’t participate in any of what happened doesn’t even begin to pass muster. There werne’t exactly a rash of British guys walking around and eye witnesses put them on the scene torturing people. While they may have not killed anyone personally (but they probably did), there’s no doubt they helped move the process along.

Now, after all they’ve done, they just want to be extradited and for the episode to be over.

Elsheikh said: “If anything, I think that a confession will maybe hasten our extradition or rendition to the United States, I don’t think this is something that will prevent me going to the United States at all. I don’t see how that would be possible. I just want this period to be over. I know what needs to be done. The truth has to come out.”

Painting yourself as a truth teller after you imprisoned, tortured, and helped murder innocent people isn’t a good look and will certainly do nothing for their chances of being brought to the United States for a trial.

CNN’s article goes on to bemoan the fact that these two are likely to be put to death soon by an Iraqi court.

The swift and brutal justice exposes the delicate line between the deterrent value of leaving foreign ISIS fighters in the hands of the legal system of the countries they sought to fragment, and the need for their home nations to be seen to prosecute their own extremists under the value system ISIS sought to undermine.

I actually see no conflict there at all. If you leave the shores of your country to go fight against it, killing and torturing along the way, it’s perfectly consistent that you’d then be tried in the area you chose to go. There is no moral obligation for western nations to repatriate these people and give them the chance to manipulate our justice systems. Where CNN see is a “delicate line,” I see a massive gulf that’s easy to distinguish.

The entire tenor of the CNN piece just rubs me the wrong way. Some people don’t deserve to be pitied. Not in this life at least. Terrorists are not going to suddenly change their ways because we start importing their counterparts back to western countries for trials. The deterrent is much stronger when they know they’ll be staring down an Iraqi judge who’s going to make his decision in ten minutes.

This pair should get nowhere near a western shore again. They should remain where they are and be put to death by the authorities of the country they chose to invade. Making a choice to join ISIS has consequences and they are about to learn that the hard way. We owe them nothing.

New Documents Show Obama Administration Continually Lied About Knowledge of Hillary Email Server

Westlake Legal Group Clinton-disgusted-620x334 New Documents Show Obama Administration Continually Lied About Knowledge of Hillary Email Server Secretary of State Records Act Politics Obama Administration lying judicial watch Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page FOIA Featured Story Email server democrats Barack Obama

But her emails, right?

I mean, if we can focus on 35 year old tax returns that show Trump legally lost a lot of money, I don’t see any issue going back a few years to corruption in the Obama administration.

Judicial Watch has obtained new emails which show that not only did they know about Hillary’s server long before they claimed, but they were keeping tabs on it all to manage the situation.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained 44 pages of records from the State Department through court-ordered discovery revealing that the Obama White House was tracking a December 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking records concerning then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. Months after the Obama White House involvement, the State Department responded to the requestor, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), falsely stating that no such records existed.

While legitimate FOIA requests were flowing in, the Obama administration was lying to requestors and saying the records didn’t exist. All the while, they knew Hillary had a private server full of official emails, to the point where even Obama himself would correspond with her via a pseudonym.

On January 10, 2013, Walter writes to Samuelson that she is not including “personal” accounts in the FOIA request search:

“Hi Heather – did you ever get any intell re what other agencies are doing re this FOIA request that seeks records about the number of email accounts associated with the Secretary (but isn’t specifying “personal” email accounts so we are interpreting as official accounts only). We are considering contacting the requester to find out exactly what it is they are looking for. Do you have any-concerns about that approach?”

Soon afterward, Samuelson responds, “White House Counsel was looking into this for me. I will circle back with them now to see if they have further guidance.”

CREW’s general counsel, Anne Weismann, submitted a FOIA request to the State Department on December 6, 2012, seeking “records sufficient to show the number of email accounts of or associated with Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the extent to which those email accounts are identifiable as those of or associated with Secretary Clinton.”

On May 10, 2013, [Information Programs and Services] replied to CREW, stating that “no records responsive to your request were located.”

The short of this is that Hillary kept all her official emails on her personal server. When outside parties would make requests, they would only search her unused official accounts and then respond back that no records existed. All the while, they knew Hillary was doing business outside of official channels in a way that clearly subverted FOIA laws.

This scheme started back when Clinton first assumed her role.

The new documents also include a January 2013 email exchange discussing Clinton’s departure from the State Department in which Agency Records Officer Tasha M. Thian specifically stating that Secretary Clinton “does not use email.”

This was directly contradicted by an email exchange between Secretary Clinton and Gen. David Petraeus dating back to January 2009 – the very first days of Clinton’s State Department tenure – in which she tells Petraeus that she “had to change her email address.”

What we are seeing here is a pattern of continual lying by the Obama administration and its officials about Clinton’s use of a private email server. Furthermore, they did so to directly avoid FOIA requests which were lawfully supposed to be fulfilled.

You are not allowed to simply say “whoops, that’s on my personal account so that’s not subject to FOIA” for obvious reasons. It would allow widespread corruption.

Clinton is bulletproof so nothing will come of this, but it’s just another in the long list of bad, possibly illegal behavior by her and the Obama administration. This entire thing deserves a real investigation and not the whitewashing it got under James Comey. Anyone that opposes that is only doing so for partisan reasons.

Obama Bro Ben Rhodes Is Still Lying About White House Involvement in Trump-Russia Investigation

Westlake Legal Group ap-obama-rice-rhodes-620x413 Obama Bro Ben Rhodes Is Still Lying About White House Involvement in Trump-Russia Investigation Video Trump-Russia Investigation Russia Politics Obama White House Obama Administration lying Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI donald trump doj democrats ben rhodes

President Barack Obama, third from right, listens during a bilateral meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in Paris, on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015. The leaders discussed the continuing crisis in Syria, and the fight against the Islamic State group. From left, Charles Kupchan, Senior Director for European Affairs, Brian Deese, Senior Advisor, Secretary of State John Kerry, Obama, Susan Rice, National Security Advisor, and Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

Ben Rhodes has a rather tattered history with the truth and that doesn’t appear to be changing.

As part of the “scandal free” Obama White House, he got caught in multiple lies, including about the Benghazi attack, vetting Syrian refugees, and of course his “echo chamber” he created to feed false propaganda to the media. The media were of course happy to be used as pawns, as even after Rhodes publicly admitted to duping them (and joked of their ignorance), they still defend him and the Obama administration vigorously to this day. It must be nice to be a Democrat.

Rhodes did a new interview at Georgetown University and he was asked about many of the issues surrounding the Trump-Russia campaign, including it’s origins.

He had this to say.

“No, no, I cannot be clear enough about this. We didn’t even know there was an FBI investigation of Trump. I didn’t. President Obama didn’t, like, we actually abided by the firewalls between – if there were any investigations that took place, those decisions were made in the Justice Department, in the FBI, not in the White House,”

“They will find nothing that suggests there was any political or White House involvement in any of that. Literally, I learned about the FBI investigation of Trump as a private citizen in the frickin’ Washington Post. So, you have to understand, we actually abided by the longstanding practice of the White House not getting involved in that kind of stuff,” he added.

He would go on to call any investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia hoax a “waste of time.”

There’s a problem though. He’s lying. 

How do we know? Because it’s already been proven that the Obama White House was not only aware of the investigation, they were involved at the highest levels.

While Rhodes maintains the Obama administration’s innocence, unredacted copies of text messages suggest otherwise. Former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page served on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation when their anti-Trump text messageswere leaked. “The White House is running this,” one text read.

It doesn’t get any clearer than that. It’s also beyond belief to think that the Brennan, Clapper, etc. weren’t briefing the President on this stuff given how invested they were in it.

Why would Rhodes lie about their knowledge at this point? The simple answer is that they know a compliant media will dutifully believe it and report it as truth, just as they did with his Iran deal nonsense.
