Newly Declassified Documents Show Hillary’s Server Was Compromised, Emails Forwarded to Chinese Email Account

Westlake Legal Group hillary-benghazi-620x298 Newly Declassified Documents Show Hillary’s Server Was Compromised, Emails Forwarded to Chinese Email Account Whitewash Travesty Politics Peter Strzok Paul Combetta John Huber james comey injustice IG Horowitz Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story emails democrats Chinese China Carter Heavy bill barr

On the eve of DNI Dan Coats stepping down, we got a rash of declassifications dealing with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.

As with all things dealing with this topic, it’s complicated and can be hard to follow. But we aren’t dealing with anonymous sources or speculation here. These are actual documents and that have just been declassified. Perhaps this dump shows President Trump is keeping his promise on that front?

Brian Cates (Epoch Times) laid out exactly what we are seeing in a lengthy thread that I’m not going to fully post here. I’d suggest you go read it to get the full picture. I’ll do my best to summarize and highlight the major revelations though.

Essentially, the FBI found in the metadata that every email sent and received on Clinton’s home brew server was being copied to an email address registered to a Chinese company named Carter Heavy Industries.

Who setup this email address? We now know the answer to that.

Paul Combetta was Hillary’s IT specialist and he was inexplicably given blanket immunity by James Comey’s FBI during the Hillary email investigation. This despite the fact that he clearly broke the law and apparently had absolutely nothing of substance to offer investigators.

Typically, you don’t give immunity to someone who can’t help you land a bigger fish. But as most reading this know, nothing about the Hillary email investigation made sense. It was clearly ran as a whitewash operation of any possible criminal activity. These new documents further establish that, as we see James Comey and Peter Strzok actively suppressed the evidence in question.

In fact, the only reason we are finding out about this is because the Inspector General filed a supplemental report to fill in gaps left in the original IG report on the Hillary investigation.

The excuse being given by some defenders is that Combetta made the email account so that means it was just an account to archive Clinton’s emails. That leaves way too many questions unanswered and makes little sense.

If you want to setup a dummy account, why are you using a Chinese company as the domain? The first thought would be to ask if Combetta was being paid off by the Chinese to forward the emails to them. That’s probably the least controversial explanation though. If Clinton herself was involved in the distribution of the materials, things would really escalate. The IG came up inconclusive, unable to pin down exactly the provenance and purpose of the Chinese email address. What we do know is that the FBI leadership at the time glossed over the evidence and essentially buried it.

Past that, even if we are to believe that Combetta picked the name at random, it means he broke the law by illegally archiving classified government documents. Of course, we all know Combetta was not acting alone. Hillary Clinton was his boss and had to have been directing him to do these things. What that points to is the magical intent that James Comey claimed didn’t exist (intent wasn’t actually required in the criminal statute regardless).

There’s a lot more in Cates’ thread and I’d again encourage you to read through it. This entire ordeal is just a mess and from what’s being rumored, it’s not over. Bill Barr is on record saying John Huber, who is part of the investigation into all this, is looking at the question of the 33,000 emails Clinton illegally destroyed.

It’s been said a million times and I’ll say it once more. If this were anyone but Hillary Clinton, they’d be in jail by now.

Babylon Bee Posts the Definitive Take on Omar’s and Tlaib’s Reactions to Israel Deciding to Bar Them

People of all political stripes have weighed in today after Israel’s announcement that they would be barring Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) from entering the country because they believed the two freshman Congresswomen intended to “harm Israel” and “increase incitement against it” with their visit.

That the reasons given by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are valid has not stopped The Usual SuspectsWestlake Legal Group 2122 Babylon Bee Posts the Definitive Take on Omar’s and Tlaib’s Reactions to Israel Deciding to Bar Them Social Media rashida tlaib Politics North Carolina Minnesota Michigan Israel Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Congress Benjamin Netanyahu bds Babylon Bee anti-semitism Allow Media Exception   from weighing in and asserting, among other things, that Israel is engaging in “bigotry” and showing “enormous disrespect” to the pro-BDS Congressional representatives.

Omar called the decision an “affront” and an “insult to democratic values,” saying Netanyahu had “aligned himself with Islamophobes like Donald Trump.” Tlaib tweeted a photo of her grandmother, stating “The decision by Israel to bar her granddaughter, a U.S. Congresswoman, is a sign of weakness b/c the truth of what is happening to Palestinians is frightening.”

Perhaps the best take of all on this issue is the one that is the least hysterical. And that is what the Babylon Bee did today with its “report” on Tlaib’s and Omar’s reactions:

Here’s what they wrote:

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar reported Thursday they were bewildered that they got banned from Israel, a country they seem to believe shouldn’t exist at all.

“It’s racism,” said Omar in a press conference. “It’s all due to racism. Well, that and a Jewish conspiracy. The Jews are behind this, for sure.” (The evidence indicates she’s correct on this assertion, a first for her accusations against Jews).

Tlaib agreed, saying she wanted to ask Jews about the Holocaust so she could relax and get a “calming feeling” while she was there.

Brilliant and on point, as always.

New Video Shows Palestinian Terrorists Stabbing an Israeli Police Officer

Westlake Legal Group israel-gaza-620x345 New Video Shows Palestinian Terrorists Stabbing an Israeli Police Officer Terrorist stabbing rashida tlaib Politics palestinian knife jerusalem Israeli Police Israel Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Attacker

This is what Israel is up again.

Today, video emerged of a stabbing attack that took place this morning in Old Jerusalem. Israeli police are seen gathering when two armed men burst through the door. Then this happens.

One officer was stabbed in the shoulder and fell to the ground. Luckily, other officers were able to pull their guns and put down the attackers within seconds.

The internet and news media have spent all day arguing whether it was good “PR” for Israel to bar Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from carrying out an anti-Israel propaganda tour within the country, as if that’s the only factor here. This video is a reminder that this is not about optics or PR. The security situation is tenuous at best and Israel is constantly having to fight off ambush attacks like this from Palestinians. These terrorists are indoctrinated as children and are then paid by the Palestinian Authority to try to kill Israelis.

It’s easy for any of us to sit behind our keyboards and type out screeds about how it’s not “smart” for Israel to stop Omar and Tlaib from coming, but the reality is that Israel doesn’t have the luxury of caring about media backlash. There were very real, very serious concerns about the two women visiting the Temple Mount and causing a violent reaction. Had they arrived with their terror supporting entourage (i.e. the Palestinian Authority members they were scheduled to meet), Israel would have been forced to stop their entry. It’s easy to predict what would happen in response.

Israel has chosen to stop the trip all together, avoiding a volatile situation and that was the right move. American politics is not the most important thing in the world. CNN may cry but who cares? Terrorism in Israel is a real thing and having anti-Semitic, pro-BDS Congressional members walking around promoting their cause and bad mouthing Israel was not something the Jewish state was obligated to put up with.

Getting back to this video, it’s a reminder of the incredibly violent atmosphere Israel has to live under every single day. Their security is not a game of politics and no one should treat it as such.

Sen. Ted Cruz Calls El Paso Shooting Racist And Calls For Congress To Act

Westlake Legal Group ted-cruz-corey-booker-300x172 Sen. Ted Cruz Calls El Paso Shooting Racist And Calls For Congress To Act washington D.C. Ted Cruz Social Media Popular Culture Politics Morning Briefing Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Dallas Morning News crime Conservatives Congress Border Wall Funding Bipartisanship Allow Media Exception 2019

The nation is still reeling from the shootings in El Paso and Dayton almost two weeks ago. As the citizens of Texas and Ohio and the country of Mexico start to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives forever altered, now is the time to start having a reasoned discussion of what is happening in this country and how to begin to fix it.

Sen. Ted Cruz begins that process today in an Op-Ed published in the Dallas Morning News.

From his piece today…

There is no place for this evil in El Paso, in Texas, or anywhere across our nation.

I am grateful federal authorities are rightly treating this case as domestic terrorism. The Justice Department needs to treat this mass murder with the seriousness it deserves and pursue the death penalty. I pray that the victims, their families and the people of El Paso receive justice and find peace.

In the days and weeks to come, Congress can and must work to help prevent these heinous attacks. Failures to effectively utilize the national background checks system have resulted in the loss of far too many precious lives. Too many felony convictions — like that of the Sutherland Springs shooter — have never even been entered into the national database.

I’m glad that an elected official on the Federal level is calling this exactly what it is, an evil act. That is a great start. Now we need to dig into the nitty-gritty and there are many grimy layers.

The mood immediately after these horrific events always turns too that Congress must DO something as opposed to something that will actually help solve this problem. Congress can’t just pass a law to make this better. This issue goes much deeper than anything lawmakers can do from a Capitol city far away.

So what can be done? Now is the time to start that conversation in earnest.

Sen. Cruz recommends improving the background check system. This absolutely is something that needs to happen and would have prevented the Sutherland Springs church shooting that killed 26 people in Texas. Yet would the background checks have stopped the shooters in El Paso or Dayton?

Most likely not.

I would like to suggest that some Senators that are known as staying faithful to the Consitution, Sen. Cruz, Sen. Lee and Sen. Sasse take a look at if any sort of Red Flag law would be viable. I know that the term Red Flag immediately raises issues about the police charging in to grab weapons with no due process. I’m not for that nor should any person who believes the 2nd amendment to the Consitution is critical to the survival of our republic.

However, having people with the view and temperament of the people I have listed above, start a discussion among themselves and with their colleagues about this and other aspects to this would hopefully start a process of serious meaningful discussion on this issue.

Also, put some of these conversations on YouTube for the whole nation to see. Invite the debate and comments.

The time of these events happening and everyone running to their pre-assigned corner needs to end. Let’s start the national conversation about what in the hell is going on and try to figure out how to start chipping away at this problem that has killed, wounded and altered lives forever.

I believe Sen. Cruz started that discussion today in his op-ed. I hope he and others will continue in a meaningful way to pursue this noble goal.

We owe that to all those in El Paso and Dayton and all the other shootings this country has endured the past two decades.

AOC Gets a Reality Check After Tweeting Stupidly About Israel’s Decision to Bar Omar and Tlaib

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 A.G. William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, June 12, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

As Kira Davis wrote this morning, Israel has decided to bar Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) from entering the country, asserting that the two freshman Congresswomen intended to “harm Israel” and “increase incitement against it” with their visit.

The decision outraged Democrats, and some Republicans even weighed in to express their disagreement, including Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), who tweeted this out in response:

Someone else who weighed in on the Twitter machine was Squad leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) who never lets a crisis go to waste where she can invoke the “POC” card in some way, shape, or form:

Firstly, there is no “Muslim ban” in Israel. In fact, Muslims make up about 18% of Israel’s population, as Red State‘s Brandon Morse points out here:

The ban is on anyone who actively promotes and advocates on behalf of the anti-Semitic BDS movement, which both Omar and Tlaib enthusiastically do.

Secondly, it’s a safe bet to say that Israel’s decision had nothing to do with any urging by Trump and instead was based on its own safety and security interests, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained in a series of tweets explaining the decision earlier today:

Another Twitter user linked to this tweet from Daily Wire‘s Harry Khachatrian about how Tlaib and Omar referred to Israel in their itinerary as “Palestine”, which is one of the issues the Prime Minister referenced in his tweets on the decision:

There’s also this very important question, which we will not receive an answer to from any of the Squad members currently voicing outrage:

Israel had some very valid reasons for denying Omar and Tlaib entry into the country. Besides, any fauxtrage expressed by BDS-enabling Democratic members of Congress like AOC seems highly disingenuous at this point, anyway.

Politifact Ponders If Word Choice Even Matters While Refusing to Fact Check a Blatantly False Statement

Westlake Legal Group facepalmStatue-620x310 Politifact Ponders If Word Choice Even Matters While Refusing to Fact Check a Blatantly False Statement Word Choice Politifact Politics media bias kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Fact Check Elizabeth Warren democrats Crazy bias

This is not a parody. This actually happened.

You may recall a few days ago when Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris (among others) were dinged for blatantly lying about the death of Michael Brown. They claimed it was the fifth anniversary of his “murder” even though multiple investigations found he attacked a police officer, tried to get his gun, and then charged the officer.

You’d think such an obvious lie would be gold for the media and fact-checkers. After all, they are just unbiased umpires calling balls and strikes, right? In reality, it only illicited a few mentions. Simply ignoring the statements even happened was the strategy of the day.

Then Politifact came along, smeared themselves in honey, and ran through the bear exhibit. BTW, if Politifact is “fact-checking” this article, that’s a joke. Politifact did not actually smear themselves in honey and run through a conglomerate of bears.

The article starts off by showing the two tweets by Warren and Harris, one of which I posted above. They then get into their analysis of the matter. Remember this is a “fact-checking” website.

After these tweets came out, PolitiFact heard from numerous readers who asked us to check whether Harris and Warren were correct in calling Brown’s death a “murder.”

There is no question that Wilson killed Brown, and there’s strong evidence that it was not accidental.

No one has claimed the shooting was an accident, so of course there’s strong evidence it wasn’t. It was a justifiable homicide. The officer had been attacked and then was being charged by Brown. Both the local and DOJ investigations found this to be what happened. There is zero evidence to the contrary.

In discussing the case with legal experts, however, we found broad consensus that “murder” was the wrong word to use — a legal point likely familiar to Harris, a longtime prosecutor, and Warren, a law professor.

Ok, so Warren and Harris lied. They get the pants of fire rating, correct? Nah, they chose not to even rate it.

Because the significance of Harris’ and Warrens’ use of the word is open to some dispute, we won’t be rating their tweets on the Truth-O-Meter.

Westlake Legal Group wtf-is-wrong-with-you-620x350-620x350 Politifact Ponders If Word Choice Even Matters While Refusing to Fact Check a Blatantly False Statement Word Choice Politifact Politics media bias kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Fact Check Elizabeth Warren democrats Crazy bias

This is insanity. Every fact check includes some point of dispute. There is not actual factual dispute about what happened to Michael Brown. Just because some liberal professor says that the legal designations shouldn’t matter, that does not mean a lie ceases to become a lie.

Politifact ended with this quote.

“Focusing on the language opens up the opportunity for some to discredit the conversation about police brutality and the criminal justice system in general,” Leopold said.

What…?

If the facts of a case open up the opportunity to discredit a narrative, that means the narrative is suspect. It doesn’t mean you ignore the meaning of words and tacitly endorse the idea that word choice doesn’t matter.

While this article by Politifact isn’t a parody, it certainly reads like one. Politifact has never, ever given any Republican this kind of benefit of the doubt. We’ve seen some fact-checks of Republicans that defy all good faith analysis, with truthful claims being twisted to assign lesser ratings. Yet, here’s two top tier Democrat candidates for 2020 blatantly lying and Politifact won’t even rate their statements. It’s a double standard that’s incredibly obvious.

Laughably, Politifact claims that Elizabeth Warren is very honest, never rating one of her claims below a “half-truth.”

It’s easy to have that kind of record when Politifact refuses to fact check any knowingly false statement by Warren. The game is rigged in this case.

This is the kind of thing that kills faith in the media. If a supposed fact-checker can’t be trusted to ding a Democrat on such an obvious lie, no one will trust them on anything. This was a jump the shark moment and Politifact is still hurtling through the air, skis flailing about. For their sake, I hope they rethink this and put out a new fact check on this matter.

Barstool Sports President Isn’t Backing Down from AOC, Challenges Her to a Debate Again

If you haven’t seen what’s going down between the comedy site Barstool Sports and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, then you’re missing out one of the greatest Twitter spats in history.

What makes it so great is the fact that Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy isn’t just stopping at not backing down from AOC, he’s actively antagonizing her.

For backstory, the Twitter spat started when a pro-union journalist told Barstool Sports employees to reach out to him if they want help getting a unionization process started. Portnoy responded by tweeting out that if any of his employees DM this man, he’ll fire them on the spot.

He also made it clear that if they reached out to a lawyer looking to unionize these workers pro-bono, he’d do worse.

This was clearly all for the sake of humor, as Barstool employees aren’t at all looking to unionize. Portnoy was having fun getting a rise out of pro-union activist journalists and attorneys.

As we all know, though, humor isn’t exactly the left’s strong point, and the point of all this was clearly missed by the least humorous person on the planet, AOC. Taking to Twitter, she attempted to sic the mob on Portnoy while threatening him with the shadow of legal action.

Usually, at this point, people back down when it comes to responses to AOC. They fear the sudden mob that comes at them and the fact that AOC is crazy enough to mount some kind of movement against that person.

Portnoy, however, went full steam ahead and challenged AOC to a debate.

It’s beautiful.

They should have sent a poet.

Not only that, Portnoy continued to challenge any pro-union person who came at him on Twitter. It was fun to watch to say the least. You can see more at Louder with Crowder.

Now that you’re all caught up, we can fast forward to the present, where Portnoy is appearing on Fox News and calling AOC “O’Crazio” and lording it over her that while she can’t seem to raise a dime within her own district, her outrage toward him is filling up his coffers with record numbers.

Portnoy also renewed his request for AOC to debate him, which he doesn’t think is going to happen.

Hilariously, others have taken to trolling AOC over her attempts at intimidating a business leader. For instance, someone slapped a Barstool Sports sticker onto her office name placard.

While AOC’s mob can look intimidating, at the end of the day, it’s really just a lot of bluster. Portnoy seems to be one of the few business leaders to get this and has no trouble poking AOC and her regressive fans till they explode from the sheer outrage.

Perhaps we could all learn from Portnoy.

Same NBC Analyst Who Accused Trump Of Using Nazi Numerology Compares His Supporters To Terrorist Organization

(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

You may remember NBC’s national security analyst Cesare Frank Figliuzzi from several weeks ago. In the wake of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings, President Trump called on Americans to fly their flags at half-staff through Thursday, August 8th. Good thing we had Figliuzzi to explain the significance of this particular date, 8/8.

The numbers 88 are very significant in the neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 8-8 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8…No one is thinking about this.

He’s right. No one did think of this.

Figliuzzi, a former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI, has a new message for us.

MSNBC’s Chris Jansing said, “I think one of the things, Frank Figliuzzi, is that this president has always, from anyone who was around him, Anthony Scaramucci knows this as well as anybody else, demanded this blind loyalty, right? ‘I say it, it must be so. Or even if you don’t think it’s so, you don’t criticize me for it.’”

Here is Figliuzzi’s reply:

Well, this is why it’s so important to look through the lens of radicalization when you look at this president and then apply counter-radicalization techniques. Because you’re right, attacking his followers is going to be counterproductive.

He demands that loyalty, and they are loyal. So if you call Trump followers racist en masse, they simply coalesce around each other and become even more protective and defensive of the leader, just as they would in, say, a terrorist organization to compare to the radicalization.

This is what passes for intelligent commentary on MSNBC and CNN. They are so enlightened and we are so contemptible. This is how progressives do it. They can’t argue on substance, so they have to smear.

Figliuzzi characterizes Trump supporters as a herd of sheep blindly following our leader. He is projecting the reality of the left onto us. They act like a herd of sheep.

The left has a list of talking points at any given time which they all repeat. That’s what makes it so easy for Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity to produce video montages which show ten different liberals on separate programs all spouting the same exact lines.

For example, after Robert Mueller was appointed to the special counsel, every talking head on every CNN and MSNBC program uttered some version of the phrase, “This is the beginning of the end for Trump.”

Back in January, liberals all denied that what was happening on our southern border was a real crisis. They were all repeating, “This is a manufactured crisis.”

The death of the bogus Russian collusion narrative was quickly followed by the demise of the obstruction narrative. It was a real one-two punch and it left them rudderless until, as a group, they adopted their new ‘Trump is a racist’ mantra. ‘Trump is a white supremacist” is a variation on that theme.

Finally Figliuzzi compares Trump supporters to members of a terrorist group.

Once again, he is projecting the groupthink of the left onto conservatives. He is attacking innocent people.

Fox News’ Jesse Watters pointed out that “terrorists attack innocent people and that’s exactly what MSNBC is doing.”

The most frightening thing about Cesare Frank Figliguzzi is that he is a 25-year veteran of the FBI.

The Israeli governments move announced earlier today that Rep. Ilhan Omar D-Minn and Rep. Rashida Tlaib D-Mich would be banned from making a trip there beginning on Sunday, has created waves in both countries diplomatically.

This has also created another potential problem for the Democrats in Congress.

Some background first.

The current President of these United States happens to be Donald Trump and he is not a fan of these two ladies and the other members of the “Progressive Cheer Squad” and those that share their mindset. In fact, just before the official announcement from the Israeli Interior Ministry confirming the ban saying it was “inconceivable that those who wish to harm the state of Israel while visiting would be granted entry”, Trump tweeted this…

It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!

Generally, Presidents don’t make such statements about their counterparts in the Article I branch of government. However, we are now fully aware that in the “Age of Trump” the rule book on these things has been thrown out the window. Trump operates on a totally different level than any President before so that which was once uncommon is now commonplace.

The President also flat out said that this in a tweet just after the announcement was made…

Representatives Omar and Tlaib are the face of the Democrat Party, and they HATE Israel!

So it is clear that President Trump not only pushed for this ban but thinks that Omar and Tlaib hate Israel. Is that a fair argument?

Well, it is one that the Democrats in the House of Representatives actually confronted earlier this year.

From a March 4th article over at NPR

House Democrats are again considering a vote on a new resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to recent comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that senior members of the party and Jewish groups say play on anti-Semitic tropes. A House Democratic leadership aide said the vote could come as early as Wednesday.

A spokesman for Omar has not responded to a request for comment on the resolution.

The infighting among Democrats has largely played out on social media, but this time the Minnesota Democrat is pushing back against her colleagues who say she should apologize and change her tone.

The House voted 424-0 last month on a Republican motion to condemn anti-Semitism following a controversy over Omar’s tweets in which she suggested lawmakers support Israel only because of Jewish lobbying influence and money.

The article also goes on to talk about how House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y both pushed back on these comments. Engel went as far as to ask for her to be removed from his committee. Also, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was contacted by the head of the Anti-Defamation League to condemn the statements made.

Just a mere 5 months ago Democrats voted to essentially tell one of the members of the squad to shove it. Of course in the most polite way the House can.

Pelosi is going to have to walk a fine line here. The one HUGE advantage she has is that Donald Trump has already mixed it up with these two. The media will run with picking on people of color nonsense and that he got Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to play along.

The huge downside is that Pelosi is once again dealing with a minority in her caucus that thinks they represent the country thus that anything they say is speaking for the people. So far, that has not proven to be true.

Even though the “Go Back To Your Own Country” line from Trump created a bit of a cease-fire in the battle between Pelosi and the cheer crew, it won’t last. Like her or despise her, Nancy Pelosi knows how to lead. The ones who criticize Donald Trump for tweeting and do the exact same thing don’t have that skill yet. If they take this as a signal to start firing off some crazy stuff, Trump will win that battle every day.

Which in that case could lead to the beginning of the break of that ceasefire because of the pressure behind the scenes of people agreeing with the ban in Dem circles.

We now have under 15 months until the next Presidential election. The Dem POTUS hopefuls are turning up the rhetoric on Trump and soon to be each other. Nancy Pelosi wants to keep herself as a Speaker and keep the newbies from going off the rails with language that is or may seem anti sematic.

Even with Trump as the foil will the democrats be able to keep their radical members in line?

We have just over 400 days until we find out and it will be well worth watching.

Even If Trump’s Tweet Shifted Israel’s Decision on Omar and Tlaib, It’s Still the Right Call

Let’s say you’re throwing a party and you invite everyone. However, two of the guests you invited continue to denounce your party and accuse you of horrific things. They continuously try to stop your party from happening and discourage others from going while declaring that they have every intention of showing up themselves.

After some time, one of your friends who knows them personally says, “Dude, I would just uninvite them if I were you.”

Considering the fact that it’s likely that these two are coming to ruin your party and put you down to others while they’re there, you shrug your shoulders and disinvite these two troublemakers from entering your home.

That’s what this controversy surrounding Israel, President Donald Trump, and Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar boils down to.

The fact of the matter is that Omar and Tlaib are proven antisemites. They’re on record saying things like Israel shouldn’t get to exist as a Jewish state because it’s not Democratic enough while saying absolutely nothing about the Muslim controlled countries surrounding it. Omar also suggests that “protesters” are being unfairly killed in Gaza over an occupation by Israel, completely ignoring the fact that these “protesters” are terrorists who lob rockets at innocent civilians on the daily.

Omar also likened Israel to Nazi Germany as she and Tlaib pushed for boycott legislation.

Gee! Is it any wonder that when Trump, a trusted ally of Israels’, tweeted:

“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”

Israeli leaders would consider it a solid piece of advice and act accordingly.

Who can blame them? Tlaib and Omar clearly weren’t coming down there to make friends and learn. They were going there to do the same thing AOC claimed to do at the border. It was a trip for damning photo-ops and bad press.

Israel knows that, Trump knows that, and I’m willing to bet that the left doing its usual “faux and show” of outrage knows that too. In fact, judging from how they talk about Israel as they’re expressing outrage, it’s what they hoped for.

Even if Trump did play a part in Israel’s decision, be it through Twitter or a phone call to Benji Netanyahu, it doesn’t matter. It was the right call. Tlaib and Omar are clearly antisemitic bigots who have shown zero kindness toward Israel and likely never plan to.

The sovereign country of Israel is well within its power to bar them from entering the country, and furthermore, is wise to do so.
