Thread: News Summary from the Week that Was (13 – 19 October)

Here are this week’s stories that don’t fit the media’s “Republicans bad, Democrats good” narrative. There are a lot of items from which to choose, but these are somewhat off the beaten path but nevertheless important. Once again, I am doing longer quotes of fewer articles this week, as I am still overseas.

1. This is a great way to start the list! This topic is something that Democrats and their paid media are desperate to hide. Have you seen this reported anywhere?

According to the findings of a new Hill-HarrisX poll, a shocking 32 percent of black male voters would prefer to vote for Donald Trump over a generic Democrat opponent in the 2020 presidential election. The Hill reported the data deceptively by claiming that an “overwhelming majority of black voters” would support a Democrat in 2020 over President Trump. The fake news did not mention Trump’s impressive support among black male voters in their report about the poll. While 32 percent of black males support the President against a Democratic challenger, only seven percent of black females would support him over the generic Democrat. The black community may be split on gender lines over Trump, but he has undoubtedly amassed an impressive level of support from the men for a Republican contender.

Read the rest here.  Keep in mind that POTUS has endured 3 years of 98% negative media coverage. Imagine what his numbers would be with even SEMBLANCE of balance from the legacy media!

2. Here’s more evidence that some if not all members of the Democrats’ Star Wars bar scene are insane and should only ever enter the Oval Office on guided tours:

Should it be a crime to knowingly expose someone to HIV without disclosing it? Most sane people would say yes. But a widely panned Vox article published this week said that state laws making it a crime to not disclose your HIV status “have only increased stigma and abuse.” And apparently, many 2020 Democrats agree with this ludicrous, insane point of view. This was a common theme at Thursday night’s CNN town hall focused on gay and transgender issues, sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign. Host Anderson Cooper, for example, called laws criminalizing HIV nondisclosure “antiquated” and based on “old science.” Presidential contender Pete Buttigieg agreed, saying, “It’s not fair and it needs to change.” And both on the CNN stage and in her new LGBT issues platform, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has endorsed decriminalizing HIV transmission as well. Sen. Cory Booker has also signed on to this radicalism, explicitly agreeing that laws requiring disclosure of HIV status to sexual partners are “archaic” and have “no scientific basis,” calling for their complete repeal.

Democrats may be endorsing this irresponsible decriminalization in an attempt to pander to woke gay and transgender activists, yet in reality it’s mostly the gay community that these laws protect in the first place. Putting gay lives at risk appears to be “woke” now, but it’s sure as hell not “progressive” in any meaningful sense of the word.

Read the rest here. I get it; some of these clowns want to return to the years of the HIV epidemic and associated fears. They need to be publicly shamed and discarded like the dirty dish rags they are.

3. Here is a great article that exposes the legacy media’s political bias against POTUS for all the world to see:

Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, the mainstream media has shed its once-noble mission — the pursuit of the truth — and instead adopted a new purpose: to take down the president. In an excerpt from her new book, “Resistance at All Costs: How Trump Haters are Breaking America,” out Tuesday, KIMBERLEY STRASSEL examines how far the press will go in its relentless crusade . . .

 Last week The Washington Post revealed the alarming news that House Democrats were considering having their anonymous “whistleblower” testify from a remote location, and in disguise. Just as shocking as the details of this plan was the justification the Post ladled on this Democratic effort to hide impeachment information from the public. It explained, high up in the story, that the cloak-and-dagger approach was merely Democrats expressing “distrust of their GOP colleagues, whom they see as fully invested in defending a president who has attacked the whistleblower’s credibility and demanded absolute loyalty from Republicans.” This, from a newspaper with a tagline of “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

Maybe the better journalistic epitaph is: Democracy dies in bias. How did journalism get here? I’ve never engaged much in media criticism, because it’s almost too obvious. Yes, the mainstream media is liberal and biased. But at least in the past, that bias was largely a function of insularity. Most reporters weren’t even fully aware they were prejudiced politically; everyone they worked and socialized with held the same left-of-center views. That’s changed in the age of Trump. The press has embraced its bias, joined the Resistance and declared its allegiance to one side of a partisan war. It now openly declares those who offer any fair defense of this administration as Trump “enablers.” It writes off those who question the FBI or Department of Justice actions in 2016 as “conspiracy” theorists. It acts as willing scribes for Democrats and former Obama officials; peddles evidence-free accusations; sources stories from people with clear political axes to grind; and closes its eyes to clear evidence of government abuse.

Sure, when it comes to the Trump administration, the press rides herd on every issue. But when it has come to former Obama officials (Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, John Brennan), the media has swallowed everything it is told. It’s hard to explain just how big a dereliction of duty this is. This willingness to cast aside facts in favor of theory is what has fed years of hysterical collusion conspiracy theories. By embracing hypothetics (rather than tracking down facts), the press indulged in endless “connect the dots” exercises. What has defined the media breakdown that started in 2016 was the press’ abandonment of standards in aid of peddling a narrative — rather than reality. For those worried about our increasingly polarized society, the media is feeding that divide.

Read the rest here. The legacy media have abrogated their constitutional responsibility in favor of Democrat partisanship. They are the enemy of the people.

4. More support for POTUS’s decision to pull US special forces off the Turkey-Syrian border keeps rolling in. This one is pretty good:

The hard truth is that the fifty US soldiers along the Syrian-Turkish border were a fake trip wire. Neither Trump nor the US military had any intention of sacrificing US forces to either block a Turkish invasion of Syria or foment deeper US involvement in the event of a Turkish invasion. Here it is critical to note that Trump did not remove US forces from Syria. They are still deployed along the border crossing between Jordan, Iraq and Syria to block Iran from moving forces and materiel to Syria and Lebanon. They are still blocking Russian and Syrian forces from taking over the oil fields along the eastern bank of the Euphrates. Aside from defeating ISIS, these missions are the principle strategic achievements of the US forces in Syria. For now, they are being maintained. Will Turkey’s invasion enable ISIS to reassert itself in Syria and beyond? Perhaps. But here too, as Trump made clear this week, it is not America’s job to serve as the permanent jailor of ISIS.

European forces are just as capable of serving as guards as Americans are. America’s role is not to stay in Syria forever. It is to beat down threats to US and world security as they emerge and then let others – Turks, Kurds, Europeans, Russians, UN peacekeepers – maintain the new, safer status quo. The final assumption of the narrative regarding Trump’s moves in Syria is that by moving its forces away from the border ahead of the Turkish invasion, Trump harmed regional stability and America’s reputation as a trustworthy ally. On the latter issue, Trump has spent the better part of his term in office rebuilding America’s credibility as an ally after Obama effectively abandoned the Sunnis and Israel in favor of Iran.

To the extent that Trump has harmed US credibility, he didn’t do it in Syria this week by rejecting war with Turkey. He did it last month by failing to retaliate militarily against Iran’s brazen military attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil installations. Whereas the US has no commitment to protect the Kurds, the US’s central commitment in the Middle East for the past 70 years has been the protection of Saudi oil installations and maintaining the safety of maritime routes in and around the Persian Gulf.

As for Syria, it is impossible to known what the future holds for the Kurds, the Turks, the Iranians, Assad or anyone else. But what is clear enough is that Trump avoided war with Turkey this week. And he began extracting America from an open-ended commitment to the Kurds it never made and never intended to fulfill.

Read the rest here. In short, he’s on solid ground in his handling of Turkey.

5. Here is confirmation of massive illegal spying on Americans by the FBI.

According to a new declassified ruling from the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), FBI personnel systematically abused National Security Agency (NSA) mass surveillance data in both 2017 and 2018. The 138-page ruling, which dates back to October 2018, was only unsealed 12 months later in October 2019. It offers a rare look at how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been abusing the constitutional privacy rights of U.S. citizens with alarming regularity. The court ruling is also a stinging rebuke to the FBI’s overreach of its ability to search surveillance intelligence databases.

Simply put, the data was available to search, and the FBI willingly took advantage of every opportunity to query the NSA intelligence database. For example, FBI employees routinely used mass surveillance data to investigate potential witnesses and informants. In 2017 alone, the FBI conducted over 3.1 million searches of surveillance data, compared to just 7,500 combined searches by the CIA and NSA. This is particularly troubling because, under current FBI operating procedures, this surveillance data can only be searched if there is reasonable suspicion of crimes having taken place or clear risks to national security. And, yet, FBI employees and FBI contractors were at times searching the database to see what information they could find on U.S. citizens not at all connected to foreign intelligence matters. In short, the FBI violated Americans’ privacy by abusing access to NSA surveillance data with warrantless searches.

Read the rest here. All the leftist-oriented civil libertarians used to be up in arms about “Big Brother,” but not in the Age of Trump.

6. The Trump Doctrine is explained here, and the Uniparty globalists don’t like it!

What our betters – those same smug geniuses who brought us Iraq, let NATO deadbeats string us along, and who let Mexico and China exploit us – truly hate is the fact that the American people stood up in 2016 and demanded that our foreign policy stop sucking. Americans are sick of always getting handed the bill for some lame ruling caste priority, whether it’s paying for the privilege of defending Europe on behalf of ungrateful continentals or funding the weird climate religion or letting China get rich off of gutting our industries. Mostly, we are sick of shipping our magnificent warriors off to die in ill-conceived, poorly-planned, ineptly-executed wars where we ended up shedding our boys’ (and girls’) blood refereeing fights that go back a dozen centuries. The coastal elite gets to bask in the radiance of its own moral superiority for deploying young people in camo from Nebraska farms and Texas towns, and we get to hold the funerals.

America First is a commonsense response to decades of America Last. It’s a repudiation of those who get elected by Americans to protect and promote American interests yet think of themselves as “Global Citizens.”

[T]he Trump Doctrine – the notion that American power should be directed toward serving the interests of the American people – is a coherent foreign policy vision of the kind we have not had in the United States for decades. In the hands of Secretary Pompeo and other believers (as opposed to the Deep State moles in the foreign policy bureaucracy), the Trump Doctrine means an on-going re-ordering of our foreign relations priority toward the only proper priority – American interests.  You see that when Donald Trump wields US economic power by imposing tariffs (Oh, summon the smelling salts!) on China to finally force it into an equal relationship with the United States. This horrifies those who are quite willing to put up with the PRC’s trade malfeasance because it lines their pockets, or because taking the side of US workers is just too hard, or because zombie Milton Freidman would be sad. But mostly you see it when the President avoids new wars no matter how hard the smart set demands he create his own quagmire. Iran has been ham-handedly trying to provoke a fight by poking our allies. Trump won’t bite. He sees the trap. And in Syria, he is keeping his promise to leave. There’s always a good reason for going into these conflicts (ISIS is bad), and there’s always a good reason to stay (Many Kurds are fine people). But there are better reasons to pack up and leave.

The American people, at least those who aren’t in DC or the media, understand that every problem around the world is not our problem. If you’re one of those Citizens of the World, then feel free to enlist in the Army of the World. Just count us out of your bloody altruism.

Read the rest here. Amen! No more open-ended expeditions without precise mission success criteria, rules of engagement, and exit criteria.

7. Democrat senators dipping their beaks into Ukrainian cash! Could Ukraine end the Democrat Party as we know it?

Joe Biden hit back at allegations over his son, Hunter, saying there was nothing corrupt about the firing of that Ukrainian prosecutor. But that is a total dodge. The real scandal is not about the firing of the damn prosecutor!! — it’s about U.S. cash for Ukraine gas. It involves not just the Bidens, but former Secretary of State John Kerry and a growing number of Democratic senators as our special investigation will reveal. These credible allegations of corruption must be investigated. Of course, President Trump is right to pursue them with Attorney General Barr, and yes, with the leader of the country where the alleged corruption took place.

How can you investigate U.S. cash for Ukraine gas without involving Ukraine? Remember Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s business partner? He had previously been a top fundraiser for John Kerry, who was Secretary of State at the time. And soon after Devon and Hunter joined the Burisma Board, the company channeled $90,000 to a lobbying firm called ML Strategies, which was headed by none other than David Leiter, John Kerry’s former chief of staff.

That’s handy because then-Secretary of State John Kerry himself has visited Ukraine with promises of U.S. aid and assistance. Well, Leiter registered as a Burisma lobbyist in mid-2014. But in the year leading up to that, he gave close to $60,000 to Democrats, including a select group of U.S. senators who would later be instrumental in pushing cash towards Ukraine’s energy sector, directly in line with Burisma’s interests. He donated to Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., four times and to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., three times. A month after the last of those donations, both Markey and Shaheen were among four senators who wrote a letter to President Obama that said, “We should leverage the full resources and expertise of the U.S. government to assist Ukraine in improving its energy efficiency, increasing its domestic production and reforming its energy markets.” Sen. Ed Markey was the Senate sponsor of the Green New Deal! He wants to shut down gas production in America. Yet he personally intervened with the Obama administration to send your tax dollars to boost Ukraine’s gas production. And not just once. Not only did he write that letter to Obama, but he sponsored multiple pieces of legislation that called for more U.S. assistance and aid specifically to help Ukraine’s natural gas sector, including one that “directs the Overseas Private Investment Corporation to prioritize support for investments to increase energy efficiency, developed domestic oil and natural gas reserves and develop renewable energy sources in Ukraine.”

This is a massive scandal. U.S. cash for Ukraine gas. Sen. Ed Markey, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, John Kerry, David Leiter, Devon Archer, Hunter Biden —  and yes, Joe Biden, who was literally presiding over all of this as it was going on — of course, it should all be investigated.

Read the rest here. This article partially explains why the Democrats are apoplectic about trying to impeach the president under false premises, as they can’t survive complete exposure of their corruption in Ukraine. The Obamas and the Clintons are hip-deep in it, too.

8. Here’s a really uplifting article to finish off the week! No way in hell will this ever be discussed on CNN, MSNBC, or the network news casts.

Donald Trump may be on the path to a landslide re-election win in 2020. Each of the three election models used by Moody’s Analytics to forecast the 2020 election indicates that Donald Trump will likely win the presidential contest. Under two of the models, Trump is forecast to win with more than the 304 electoral college votes he garnered in 2016. Moody’s election forecasts have been very reliable in the past, correctly predicting every election result except 2016. The model under-counted support for Trump because it did not anticipate the increase in voter turnout that shifted the majority vote in crucial states.

Importantly, Moody’s models all predict Trump wins even if the economy dips to multiyear lows by the end of 2020 and the stock market crashes 9 percent. In other words, Trump is expected to win despite a falling stock market and a sagging economy. Moody’s “pocketbook” model looks at three variables: gasoline prices, home prices, and changes in real personal income. Voters tend to see higher gasoline prices as negative, higher home prices, and incomes as positive. Moody’s uses its economic models to predict how these variables will perform in the months leading up to the election.

Turnout could play a big role in the election. If turnout by Democrats and independents voting against Trump is low to average, Trump easily wins under the models. If it climbs to the historical maximum, Trump would lose under the stock market and unemployment models but still win in the pocketbook model.

Read the rest here. No time to get complacent, folks! Gotta stir up your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to vote red in 2020 because the future of the Republic depends on it.

Here are the honorable mentions this week:

Here is the short summary of this week’s articles:

  • A poll reports that 32% of black male Americans support President Trump. Trouble for Democrats!
  • Some members of the Democrats’ Star Wars bar scene want to rescind the requirement by HIV-positive people to notify others of their potential exposure to HIV.
  • A great article excerpted from a new book continues to expose the legacy media’s bias against POTUS.
  • Next was some excellent rationale for POTUS’s decision to pull special forces troops off the Turkish-Syrian border.
  • The FBI has been illegally spying BIGLY on unsuspecting Americans. In 2017 alone, the FBI conducted over 3.1 million searches of surveillance data, compared to just 7,500 combined searches by the CIA and NSA.
  • The Trump Doctrine was explained to the consternation of Uniparty globalists and other assorted eternal war supporters.
  • Well, well, well: some Democrat senators were caught dipping their hands into the Ukraine cookie jar, too.
  • Finally, Moody Analytics’ predictions for the 2020 presidential race must have given Democrats a severe case of heartburn. Good!

As usual, there are many other important topics that were being covered in various forms and fashions. There’s a lot happening, including Kurt Volker’s closed-door testimony that destroys the Democrats’ Ukraine narrative. There are many more revelations on the Spygate, FISA abuse, and Ukraine fronts still to go! Who can predict what the next major revelation will be? One thing for sure: there is continuing desperation among cabal members as can be discerned from their continuing public pronunciations (a/k/a hysterical claims). Stay tuned for more!

The end.

AOC: We Must Have the Government Control Things, So We Can Be More Free

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-20-at-10.54.03-AM AOC: We Must Have the Government Control Things, So We Can Be More Free Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post endorsement democrats Congress campaign Bernie Sanders AOC Allow Media Exception 2020

Screenshot from this video

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced her endorsement this past week for the 2020 presidential election.

The fact that she endorsed an old white male millionaire candidate, and not a woman of color, might seem a bit of a surprise, given her rhetoric. But that it was Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), her fellow socialist, is perhaps not a great shock. Because that’s always the bottom line. Her fellow “Squad” members, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) also endorsed Sanders.

Not that there seems like a huge difference anymore between Sanders and any of the other folks in the Democratic field as they all seem to be running as far to the left as they can in order to grab the base and endorsements like AOC.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke at a rally on Saturday to endorse Sanders and proposed nationalizing many areas of the economy while arguing it would make us more free.

“We need to build a mass movement in America centered on working-class, the poor, the middle class,” she said. “One that is actively anti-racist, that is rooted in principles of universality. Everybody has a right to health care. Everybody has a right to an education. One that is rooted in principles of cooperation, that is participatory, that combats not only racism but misogyny, anti-queer discrimination, we have to have actively center those principles to drive us forward because the future and our future is in public systems, and it’s publicly owned systems. Because we need to take power over our lives again. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Mark Zuckerberg making decisions over my life. I don’t know about you, but the Waltons have already been making decisions over our lives and what we got was nothing.”

She continued, “We need a-uh-eh-uh United States that really, truly, authentically is operated, owned and decided by working, and all people, in the United States of America.”

She said we needed to hand all of that over to the government “because we need to take power over our lives again?”

Alrighty, now. The logic seems missing there.

Isn’t that what one calls communism? When all that stuff is owned by the state?

How has that worked in the past? Should we ask the millions of people who were oppressed in such systems? Of course, many of them were killed, so we can’t ask them.

Ocasio-Cortez said it was because of Bernie Sanders that she recognized her “inherent value as a human being.”

Really? Because if you didn’t know it before and that’s what did it for you, that’s truly troubling.

Would we rather hundreds of AOCs in charge of our lives? Because that’s what you get with the government in charge, when there’s even less accountability than in the private sector that at least has to pay attention to markets and, to some extent, the opinion of the people.

Durham to Interview James Clapper and John Brennan as he Expands Investigation; Brennan Wonders Why

Westlake Legal Group ap-john-brennan-620x409 Durham to Interview James Clapper and John Brennan as he Expands Investigation; Brennan Wonders Why william barr Special Counsel Mueller Investigation Liberal Elitism john durham John Brennan James Clapper Impeachment of President Trump Hillary Clinton Harry Reid George Neumayr Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats corruption collusion cia Christopher Steele Campaigns bill barr Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

CIA Director John Brennan testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 16, 2016, before the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on the Islamic State. Brennan said that the Islamic State remains “formidable” and “resilient,” is training and attempting to deploy operatives for further attacks on the West and will rely more on guerrilla-style tactics to compensate for its territorial losses in the Middle East. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

 

NBC News reported that Attorney General William Barr and Prosecutor John Durham have expanded their examination of the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation. Durham has increased the size of his staff and has pushed out his timeframe.

Durham will be interviewing former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper along with other current and former intelligence community officials. According to NBC:

Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.

With Barr’s approval, Durham has expanded his staff and the timeframe under scrutiny, according to a law enforcement official directly familiar with the matter. And he is now looking into conduct past Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, a Trump administration official said.

Although the probe did not begin as a criminal investigation, Justice Department officials won’t comment on whether it has morphed into one.

John Brennan told NBC that Durham’s investigation is “bizarre” and said, “I don’t know what the legal basis for this is.” He doesn’t? Let me refresh his memory.

Brennan’s obsessive fear that Donald Trump might win the presidency may have instigated the whole collusion narrative. He didn’t have to twist many arms to bring others on board, but his exhaustive search for “dirt” on Trump and his insistence that the FBI open a counterintelligence investigation was key.

I’ll never forget writer George Neumayr’s (The American Spectator) description of Brennan’s CIA. He wrote it April 2018, but it was so spot on, I remember it today. He wrote, “John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign.” Neumayr called the Trump/Russia investigation “the probe from nowhere to nowhere, undertaken simply to satisfy the partisan hunches of John Brennan and other Trump haters in the Obama administration.”

Neumayr wrote that, based upon Brennan’s testimony and his leaks, he started pushing the FBI to open an investigation in the spring of 2016. He would present the FBI with what he called evidence and that Brennan would “shake down” foreign intelligence officials looking for anything to hang on Trump. He would then present the information to Peter Strzok and other government officials. Strzok, as much as he hated Trump, famously told his paramour, Lisa Page, that “there’s no there there.”

Brennan was receiving most of his “intelligence” from British spy Christopher Steele. Neumayr explains:

Brennan’s alleged intelligence from the British on Trump-Russia collusion was just laundered Steele opposition research for Hillary (Steele had been feeding his work to British spies, who contacted Brennan). At the center of almost all the streams of phony intelligence flowing into the FBI was Steele. Through his relationship with the FBI, he served as a direct stream of bad intelligence. Through foreign intelligence agencies, he became an indirect stream of bad intelligence (with anything he gave those agencies re-routed to the FBI through Brennan). He also served as a conduit for opposition research from Hillary partisans at or connected to the State Department (Cody Shearer, a Hillary hatchet man, passed his opposition research through John Kerry aide Jonathan Winer to Steele, who then fed it back to the FBI).

This is similar to the FBI’s use of reporter Michael Isikoff’s Yahoo News article to corroborate Christopher Steele’s dossier when, in fact, Steele was the source of Isikoff’s story.

Brennan leaked news of his “probe” to then-Senator Harry Reid, who told reporters Brennan had an “ulterior motive” for doing so. Reid said, “The very thought of Donald Trump as president made Brennan see red and caused him to lose all judgment.” But, regardless of what Reid believed, he wrote an open letter anyway to James Comey on August 27, 2016 about the Trump-Russian collusion he had just been made privy to and then the world knew about it.

The FBI knew they could not start an investigation based on the rubbish that Brennan was presenting to them. They needed to find a reason. When Australian diplomat, Alexander Downer, had drinks in a London bar with low level Trump advisor George Papadopoulos, who told Downer that he had been approached by a Russian who offered to provide “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, that became a talking point for the FBI. However, according to Devin Nunes, that incident was not mentioned in the Electronic Communication (EC) that originated the counter intelligence investigation.

Nunes and several other Congressmen were allowed to view the document after threatening contempt of Congress charges and possible impeachment votes. The DOJ and the FBI went to great lengths to keep the American people from learning that there was no original intelligence to support the case for collusion. None.

That should have ended the investigation, but of course it didn’t.

Now we have Obama’s DOJ, FBI and CIA, and it looks like they had a little help from the State Department, all colluding to influence the outcome of a presidential election. It’s hardly a stretch of the imagination to believe that Obama knew what was happening.

So, this whole narrative gained momentum as more and more Obama officials and Hillary supporters heard about it and hopped on the bandwagon. The lies were repeated so often, they took on a life of their own and anti-Trumpers began to believe them because they wanted them to be true.

It’s hard to deny that if Brennan hadn’t pressured the FBI, through Peter Strzok who served as the liaison between the CIA and the FBI, and through Harry Reid and others, there would likely be no Trump/Russia collusion investigation. But this was not his only egregious offense.

He was caught in numerous lies during his years in the Obama administration. In 2014, a Senate committee was investigating the CIA’s role in torturing detainees. Brennan lied repeatedly saying “that the CIA had not illegally accessed the computers of U.S. Senate staffers.” The CIA had done so indeed, and when the Inspector General’s report came out, he was forced to apologize.

In sworn testimony before Congress in 2011, he said that Obama’s drone policy had not killed a single civilian noncombatant when, in fact, many noncombatants had been killed.

He has abused his power on many occasions by “leaking” information about everything from the underwear bomber to Stuxnet. In 2012, an asset had to be extracted from Yemen because one of Brennan’s leaks had placed him in grave danger.

These are only a few of many examples that demonstrate Brennan’s long history of poor judgement. He has always played it fast and loose with the truth. Only when he is confronted with irrefutable evidence will he admit wrongdoing.

This is the hangover from the Obama era. It will one day become the legacy of the Obama era. America’s most highly respected and influential institutions were politicized and were used to do Obama’s – and Hillary Clinton’s – bidding. Officials at the highest levels of the DOJ, the FBI, the CIA and possibly the State Department, abused their powers to fabricate a case against Donald Trump because they wanted to marginalize him. Unfortunately for them, Hillary lost the race and America is slowly learning the truth.

Did that jog your memory at all, Mr. Brennan?

Did Hillary Just Chicken Out Of An Event In D.C. With Tulsi Gabbard?

Ahh, poor Hillary. Seems that the former star to be in the Democratic party has taken so much flack from her latest boof up ( that didn’t have anything to do with Bill) she is feeling a bit off. A week in advance.

Hillary, of course, landed in some hot water last week when she said on a podcast that she thought that Tulsi Gabbard and Clinton’s 2016 opponent, Jill Stein, were propped up by the Russians. That didn’t sit well with both ladies and they let Hilly have it on twitter and in standalone interviews.

Well, this coming Friday, Hillary had the chance to hit the reset button on this at a women’s forum on something and something else and she decided to cancel. Maybe because Tulsi was also going to be there?

According to the New York Post

A face-to-face confrontation between Hillary Clinton and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard set for next Friday was averted when Clinton backed out of the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, DC.

Clinton aides cited a scheduling conflict when she announced her withdrawal from a speaking slot at the annual event. One insider told Slate that Clinton dropped out to protest the inclusion of former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson on the schedule.

But Gabbard is on the bill, too — and Clinton’s pull-out came just hours after the former Secretary of State on Friday accused the Hawaii Democrat of being the “favorite of the Russians” on a podcast.

Oh, snap.

She had a prior engagement? Like what, getting her crying towel from 2016 dry cleaned? Have the house staff do it for cripes sake.

Contrary to what some people on the interwebs are speculating this is the end of Hillary. She is not secretly propping up Tulsi for a Hillary/Gabbard 2020 ticket. She is not going to try and hijack the party nomination from the sleepy former V.P. and the faux Indian. She is not secretly plotting anything at least in regard to the dumb comment she made.

This was not a strategy but stupidity. All politicians open their mouths a bit too wide sometimes. That is all this is. I will admit to being surprised that she made this error but just like athletes, politicians can get past their prime and need to go away from the game.

Will Bill & Hill still try to influence things from behind the scenes? Sure.

However, they are not the favorite former first couple right now. Democrats much prefer Barrack Obama and Michelle to anything to do with the Clintons. That “Evening with Bill And Hillary” was a pure disaster traveling the country with lousy ticket sales. They couldn’t fill those venues with people if they paid them which they practically had to do.

No one is going to listen to a two-time loser on the national stage tell ya how to get things done.

All Hillary did here gave some more free press to Gabbard and so far she has capitalized on it. She is not going to be on the national ticket though so she will have a really fun experience to recall when all this is said and done.

So chill out Clinton conspiracy buffs, you still have the Jeffery Epstein thing to chase.

Trump’s Policies are Making Black Women Obese, ‘Kill Our People,’ Says Angry (Obese) Rutgers Gender Studies Professor

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-20-at-8.03.28-AM-620x504 Trump’s Policies are Making Black Women Obese, ‘Kill Our People,’ Says Angry (Obese) Rutgers Gender Studies Professor racism Race President Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception

Last month, Rutgers University gender studies professor Brittany Cooper appeared on an episode of the Oprah network’s show “Black Women OWN the Conversation.” She participated in a panel discussion about why so many black women are obese.

In case any of you missed it, she made the connection between President Trump’s policies and obesity rates among black women. Speaking to an audience of 100 black women, Cooper said, “I hate when people talk about black women being obese. I hate it, because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create. We are living in the Trump era. And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”

She told the group that when black women follow the same diet as white women, “we lose less weight and we lose it slower.” According to Cooper, “public health practitioners think that our stress responses in the body change our metabolism.”

Drumroll, please. Wait for it.

“It’s literally that the racism you are experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.”

The women in the audience all nod in agreement.

Leading the panel was a very fit young black woman. My heart rose for a moment when she said, “It’s also important for us to note that we have the power,” but fell when she completed her sentence with “to choose how we see ourselves.” What?

She continued “We will be fortified to fight all of these external issues when we pour into ourselves enough to say, ‘I love me. I’m not the conditions that surround me. I am not my experience. I am more than the circumstances I have gone through.”

To say that Trump’s policies are responsible for the obesity of black women is, obviously, ridiculous. I searched the internet for any year-over-year comparisons to see if obesity has increased over the last three years among this demographic, but was unable to find any up-to-date studies.

Studies do show that obesity is disproportionately higher for black women than any other group. Four out of five are considered to be obese. And obesity rates have increased in the U.S. overall in the past two decades.

But these women are preaching a victim mentality. It is self-defeating and it is dangerous. How about instead of telling these women “It’s also important for us to note that we have the power to choose how we see ourselves,” you tell them ‘it’s also important for us to note that we have the power to choose what we put into our mouths, to go out for a walk once a day or to go to the gym.’

To blame obesity on race is self-defeating. To blame obesity on President Trump’s policies is insane.

The U.S. economy is the healthiest it’s been in years. The unemployment rate, both overall and among blacks, is the lowest it’s been in half a century. I doubt very much that economic pressure among blacks has increased in the last three years.

Putting aside any Trump connections, instead of giving these young women excuses for their obesity, thereby perpetuating the cycle, why not tell them it doesn’t have to remain this way?

I know. We are living in the era of Trump. And everyone is a victim.

Screenshot from this video

Members of the climate change group that aggravated so many in London this past week, Extinction Rebellion, were also in San Francisco bothering people there.

They were demonstrating outside of the University of San Francisco campus on Gates Avenue, holding a banner across the street and holding hands, blocking traffic going both ways and preventing people from getting by or going to work.

Needless to say, it didn’t make some folks happy. Not to mention what sense does it make to stall traffic when you claim you are fighting carbon emissions so that you make more?

Well, one guy was not happy he couldn’t get to work and he made his feelings known.

Warning for offensive language:

The man, who was wearing medical scrubs, grabbed their banner and tossed it over the fence. He then yelled at them saying he had to get to work.

Here’s another angle, showing more of what happened.

The folks who took that video watching from above cheered the man.

About nine million have already shared the first video and there isn’t a lot of sympathy for the Extinction Rebellion folks who’ve managed to tick off most people everywhere.

Twitchy caught some of the responses.

It says a lot when even in San Francisco, the climate change gang’s antics are not welcome.

Biden Receives Endorsement from Senator Most Remembered for Being the Other Half of Ted Kennedy’s ‘Waitress Sandwich’

We’ve become so focused on former Vice President Joe Biden’s Ukrainian issues, we’ve forgotten all about his inability to keep his hands off of women.

On Friday, Biden received the endorsement of former Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-CT).

Aside from the Dodd-Frank Act, Dodd is best remembered for being the other half of Ted Kennedy’s infamous “waitress sandwich.”

The Hartford Courant’s Kevin Rennie explains:

One night three decades ago, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. D-Mass., and his admiring protege Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., reportedly took their dates to a fancy Washington, D.C., restaurant, La Brasserie. Plenty of alcohol had been consumed.

When the meal was coming to an end, the two women accompanying the senators repaired to the ladies’ room. A waitress, Carla Gaviglio, was summoned to the private dining room by two members of the world’s most deliberative body.

In a lightning strike, Kennedy allegedly picked up Gaviglio and threw her on the table, knocking plates and other items to the floor. He reportedly lifted her up again and put her on top of Dodd, who was seated in a chair. Kennedy then engaged in an attack that continued until another employee entered the room and joined Gaviglio in screaming, causing others to enter the room.

Oh, those high-spirited U.S. senators. They had gone out on the town in our nation’s capital and created a new dish, the waitress sandwich.

Leave it to Biden to win this coveted endorsement.

And no, neither Sen. Kennedy nor Sen. Dodd faced any consequences for this assault. The world was a different place in 1985.

Watch: Amazing Video of Coach Stopping Gunman In School, Hugging Him

Screenshot from this video

Back in May, there was a story about how a football coach at the Parkrose High School in Oregon stopped a troubled young man with a gun at the school.

But now, KOIN 6 News has released video of the event, showing just how dramatic the situation was and how lucky everyone involved was that that coach was there and did what he did to stop the young man.

The student, Angel Granados-Diaz, was 18 and he brought a shotgun into a classroom at the school.

The coach, Keanon Lowe, who doubled as a security guard, had been called to the building to find Granados-Diaz.

He then tells what happened next.

“I walk in there, I get to the classroom, I’m in the classroom for 15, 20 seconds — you know, I ask the teacher, ‘Is the student here?’”

Granados-Diaz was only steps away with the shotgun tucked under his coat.

“The door opens — I’m within arm’s length of the door, about 3 feet away from the door, and there’s a kid with a gun, a shotgun,” Lowe said. “In a fraction of a second, I analyzed everything really fast,” he said. “I saw the look in his face, look in his eyes, looked at the gun, realized it was a real gun and then my instincts just took over.”

Lowe said running away never crossed his mind.

“I lunged for the gun, put two hands on the gun. He had his two hands on the gun and obviously the kids are running out of the classroom and screaming.”

Lowe handed off the gun to another teacher and then held the student in a hug, both to control him and to soothe him. “I felt compassion for him; a lot of times, especially when you’re young, you don’t realize what you’re doing until it’s over,” Lowe explained.

Meanwhile the other students ran and police started to flood into the school looking for the the man with the gun.

Here are the videos showing it as it happened.

The gunman entering the hallway with the shotgun and the coach entering the hallway unaware the gunman is there.

Lowe comes upon the gunman, grabs the gun and then passes it off to another teacher as Lowe hugs the student.

Kids run for their lives, Police looking for the gunman.

It turned out that the gun only had one bullet and they believe the student planned to kill himself.

He got a sentence of 36 months probation for unlawful possession of a firearm in the school and another count of unlawfully having it in public.

Pretty amazing and thank God for Coach Lowe.

Barbra Streisand Tweets Cartoon of Nancy Pelosi Impaling Trump to Death

Barbra Streisand used to be known for her acting and her singing.

But in recent years, she’s been more in the news and more known for her intense hatred for President Donald Trump.

Like many among the Hollywood left, she suffers severe Trump Derangement Syndrome, even claiming that it was Trump’s fault she had gained weight after he won the presidency. She had promised that she would move to Australia or Canada if he won, but never went through with it.

But she went more than beyond the pale on Saturday, tweeting out a grisly cartoon of a huge pair of stilettos, one marked “Pelosi” which impaled Trump, with what appeared to be blood flowing out of his chest.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the president were involved in a contentious meeting at the White House on Wednesday that she walked out of and over which she attacked Trump.

They’ll also been involved in an impeachment battle, with Pelosi trying to cater to her base by pushing impeachment but not holding a formal vote for an official inquiry and the White House calling it a sham and an illegitimate witch hunt.

Streisand has tweeted a lot of criticism of Trump in the past. Just the past couple of days she’s tweeted claiming he was unfit and posted another cartoon showing him crushed by a huge peach.

Donald Trump, Jr. called Streisand out and also noted how the media wasn’t treating her violent cartoon the way they treated a meme video last week that showed a fake Trump shooting logos of news networks.

MSM media flipped out at that and tried to blame Trump for it, yet seem oddly quiet on Streisand’s post.

Streisand’s post is also still up, apparently not sufficiently offensive to Twitter.

Double standards strike once again.

Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too)

Intrepid independent researcher @NameRedacted was suspended multiple times on Twitter for what amounted to hurting the feelings of leftists and challenging their blatant lies. In his final incarnation, he was “Harold Finch,” and after being suspended for the final time has subsequently moved to Telegram where he runs a repository consisting of important factoids, linked articles, and personal commentary available to the masses. He can be found here.

Sometimes his poignant commentary deserves a much wider audience, and San Fran Nan’s staged walkout of the meeting with President Trump the other day provided the impetus for this blast. I will add my own two cents at the end.

Before getting to our commentary, here is the what transpired at the meeting:

President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., heated up their ongoing war of words after a White House meeting on Syria devolved into name-calling and led to Democrats storming out, with both sides accusing the other of a “meltdown.” Pelosi, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., walked out of the meeting Wednesday afternoon, which had been intended to discuss the administration’s decision to pull troops out of northern Syria. That decision has sparked bipartisan criticism that the decision betrays the Kurds, while giving a boost to ISIS.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham dismissed the [Democrat] reports about the meeting [Cvrk comment: they ran to the press microphones in a staged event after walking out of the meeting to spin it like they always do]:

“The President was measured, factual and decisive, while Speaker Pelosi’s decision to walk out was baffling, but not surprising,” Grisham said. “She had no intention of listening or contributing to an important meeting on national security issues. While democratic leadership chose to storm out and get in front of the cameras to whine, everyone else in the meeting chose to stay in the room and work on behalf of this country.”

Read the rest here. That pretty much says it all, but there are a couple pictures from the event that provide a lot more than simple context, as Harold Finch notes! Without further ado, here is his analysis….

This White House meeting that included hysterics by Nancy Pelosi can really be defined as a tale of two pictures. The first is unhinged Pelosi lecturing the man who writes the letters to the families of the fallen soldiers (the meetings centered on “Turkey and the Kurds”). Check out the first picture here:

Westlake Legal Group First-pic-201x300 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

Note carefully that her body language screams out of control, rude, and disrespectful. And Chuck Schumer smirking like a childish teenager watching the mouthy kid run her mouth at the Teacher. This is supposed to be a national security meeting on events in Syria. The Democrats are acting like they are the Commander in Chief berating an officer who is giving them advice they don’t want to hear. They’re drunk on Power. They’re demanding the President start a war with a NATO member and sacrifice our soldiers, all while they refuse to vote to authorize use of force much less vote to declare war on Turkey. That means this cry for war isn’t even a serious one. They don’t believe in it enough to hold a vote. They want President Trump to get into an ugly quagmire that bleeds us white to help them in 2020 election. They don’t care about Kurds. They CERTAINLY don’t care about American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines.

Then there is the second picture which is QUITE a contrast!

Westlake Legal Group Second-pic-203x300 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

In this picture, we have the President, the Secretary of Defense, the National Security Advisor, the Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the House Minority Leader, and others. In this picture, the President’s body language says he rejects her attack and is insulted. You can see it in his face he is insulted. This man writes every letter to families of those Mil families who loved one’s life is lost. He sees their pain up close & face to face. Their lives matter to him. He’s sitting down. He’s not aggressive in posture, but he’s offended.

The Chairman of JCS is looking down ignoring Pelosi. See his shoulder? US Army Special Forces & Ranger Tabs. Chest full of medals. He doesn’t take her seriously. His hands clasped likely praying. This is serious business. Everyone on this side of the table is sober & here for serious business. No laughing. No mocking. No insults. The SECDEF is clearly tense, with hands clasped, lips parsed, and a stern brow. He’s seething mad but determined to hide it.

Here’s the whole picture for comparison purposes:

Westlake Legal Group Third-pic-620x413 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

Everyone else on the President’s side of the table, including the House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, is embarrassed by and disgusted with Pelosi, Hoyer and Schumer. It’s clear the three of them never intended for this to be a good faith meeting. This was Pelosi threatening the President and he, his advisers, the Republicans, and the national security staff having none of their childishness. No one accepted the Democrats’ putting politics before America’s national security and the lives of our troops. The only skin in the game that the Democrats have is crass partisan politics; the lives of our troops are merely chess pieces in their quest for political power.

Here is a final picture, showing the President making a measured statement to the lesser-ranking Democrats who remained in the meeting.

Westlake Legal Group Fourth-pic-620x405 Harold Finch Comments on a Tale of Two Pictures (Me, too) Uncategorized Turkey Politics Policy National Security Nancy Pelosi Middle East Liberal Elitism ISIS Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Democrat Lies Abuse of Power

This is the aftermath: when Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer couldn’t force the Commander in Chief into a bloody quagmire in Syria a year before a presidential election, they threw a temper tantrum and stormed out.

Let me be blunt: the Democrats don’t give a flying f**k about America, our troops, the Kurds, or about YOU whom they are supposedly serving. The *ONLY* thing the Democrats care about is obtaining AND KEEPING political power AT ANY COST.

The moral of this sordid story is, Ddn’t ever let these dangerous people have power. It is CRITICAL to the safety of our nation that we take the House away from Pelosi &and further marginalize Chuck Schumer. You have a choice in 2020, America: a president and Congress who want the wars ended and the troops to come home, or a resident and congress who want endless wars and endless sacrifice of American lives to keep them in power. Choose wisely.

End of Finch’ commentary

A couple of points to add to Finch’s excellent synopsis:

  • San Fran Nan is concerned that pulling out 26 (!) special forces soldiers off the Syria-Turkey border is going to let ISIS back in the game? That’s laughable, particularly after her total silence during the years in which Obama allowed ISIS grow from nothing into a threat!
  • This isn’t the first time that they’ve pulled this stunt (running to a media microphone to spin a contentious meeting with @POTUS). This is what career politicians do; non-politicians and problem-solvers like @POTUS work through differences and deliver the goods!

Finally, here is the most accurate pictorial characterization of that White House meeting. Unbelievably spot on!
