BREAKING: DOJ IG Report Due Out Friday, Will Cover More Than FISA Abuse

Quick bit of breaking news just dropped.

About a month ago, IG Horowitz announced he had finished his report dealing with the Trump-Russia investigation, which most assumed would only cover possible FISA abuse. Now we are getting word it’s coming out this Friday.

Per the Washington Examiner.

“I’m hearing the IG report will be out this upcoming Friday, Oct. 18, and my sources say it’s as thick as a telephone book,” Bartiromo said, adding that it covers “more than just FISA abuse.”

It has been exactly one month since Horowitz announced the completion of the investigation by his team, who pored over more than 1 million records and conducted 100-plus interviews. The inspector general gave a draft to the Justice Department and FBI for a classification review.

Upon the completion of that process, the report will first be delivered to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, who has pledged to do a “deep dive” of his own into FISA that will run concurrently with U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the early stages of the Russia investigation. The South Carolina Republican said his “No. 1 goal” is to have as much of the report declassified as possible.

Yeah, I’m sure Democrats and former Obama officials are shaking at the thought of another Senate committee investigation.

The real news here is that it’s seemingly confirmed that it covers more than FISA abuse, which likely will end up a dead end anyway. No doubt Horowitz will cite some breaches of protocol or label the FISA warrants illegal, but I have strong suspicions the DOJ will claim they can’t prove intent.

We’ll have to wait and see where this goes. The smart money is on it not mattering much, being buried by the media, and nothing actually happening.

Rashida Tlaib: Democrats are Eyeing Throwing Uncooperative Trump Family, Friends, and Officials in Jail

If there’s one thing you probably know about Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, it’s that she wants to “impeach the motherf*****.”

She made that clear on the same day she was sworn into Congress — simultaneously becoming the first congresswoman to take her vows on the Quran and the first — so far as I know — to immediately use the mother of all curse words against the President of the United States over a microphone (here).

Strange combo.

Now, Rashida’s in pursuit of even more motherf*****s, and she’s taking no prisoners.

Oh, wait — no, actually, she taking prisoners. Sorry.

On local Detroit news program Deadline Detroit Sunday, she explained that any uncooperative friends, family members, and administrative officials who’ve been subpoenaed for the House’s impeachment inquiry may be jailed:

“There have been actual serious conversations (within the Democratic Caucus) about what the logistics would look like…if we did have to force someone through a court order to come before the congressional committee.”

She also noted that “this is pretty uncharted territory for many of us and even for Congress.”

Rashida isn’t the only one ready to chant “Lock them up.” On Wednesday, California Rep. John Garamendi promoted the same to CNN:

“I think it’s time to call in the sergeant-at-arms and march them off to our little jail, which we do happen to have. Let them sit there and cool off for a while.”

Could we actually see the day?

The Hill reports:

In an inherent contempt proceeding, the House or Senate would have its sergeant-at-arms or a deputy of that person take someone into custody.

The White House has warned Congress that it will not cooperate with an impeachment probe in the Democratic-controlled House, though a State Department official defied an order to not testify this week and met with congressional investigators.

Hopefully, the Dems won’t go down the same subpoena path as was attempted over Russian collusion — according to Donald Trump, Jr., investigators wanted to court-order the financial records of his toddler, Chloe.

That’d put Rashida in a bind, because, if Chloe maintains G. Gordon Liddy-level loyalty to Grandpa Satan, the Dems’ll have to put children in cages. Which they made clear is something only the Bad Man does, even though those pins were built under Obama.

Hilarious: Here’s How the Climate Change Gang Is Saving the Planet, Part II

Screenshot from this video

We brought you some hilarious vignettes of the climate change activists’ efforts to save the planet earlier in the week and now we have some more memorable moments for you.

While we covered the climate strike in London the first time, we’re bringing you some other places as well this time around.

Here’s folks in Sydney, Australia actually burying their heads in the sand:

Really not sure what’s going on here, but it surely looks like it will transform the climate:

This looks like an intelligent thing to do. Not. Prize for the person who can explain this one:

Oct-upying police time:

Let’s get our dance on and spew more CO2!

Guest celebrity Jane Fonda. She’s been a “climate scientist” for decades, don’t you know?

She’ll be appearing in this show for four months. Then what? What happens at the end of the four months when the world is still here? Jane is out of D.C. in a flash.

Never block a guy trying to get to his burger:

So what did they achieve, after all that? That’s the part that’s not so hilarious. Hundreds of thousands of dollars expended by the various governments to deal with the protests, money that now can’t go to improving the environment or anything else, example, Australia:

More CO2 footprint as a result.

These two crazy guys even held up planes, and had to get taken off. Not a cult, not a cult…

Police and emergency services deployed to deal with protests can’t take care of other things, as these folks observe in their critiques against London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

But hey, just remember, it’s an emergency and they’re saving the planet.

Say What? Bernie Sanders Says Elizabeth Warren Is a Capitalist As a Diss

Bernis is back.

Kinda.

He is READY TO RUMBLE.

Maybe.

Sanders in a new interview with ABC’s Jon Karl says that the big difference between him and his female counterpart who is also white, rich and boring is that she is…..GASP…A CAPITALIST.

From The Hill

In an interview airing Sunday with ABC’s Jon Karl, Sanders struck a stronger tone in distancing himself from Warren’s views on economic policy than he has in previous months, and again asserted that he was the strongest candidate to take on entrenched, powerful corporations and special interest groups in Washington.

“There are differences between Elizabeth and myself,” Sanders said, referring to Warren. “Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I’m not.”

Ohhhhh can you feel the BERRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNN?

How pathetic.

In case you had forgotten Bernie while you have been taking it easy since the ticker attack, you have a net worth of around 2.5 to 3 million dollars according to Business Insider and Warren is worth around 10 million. So she is a better capitalist than you. et you still made money selling books from a company that makes big profits selling books.

Color thy hypocrisy green. As in money.

This is obviously an attempt to stem the inevitable bleed off of his support after his recent health episode. When a 78-year-old guy has any sort of heart event they shut them down for months. Running for President is not the shutdown type of activity that most doctors would recommend.

So he goes after Liz, the New York Times goes after Biden and hopefully by the time Iowa and New Hampshire come around he is strong enough to mimic Biden’s campaign schedule which is one or two appearances a week. Maybe.

This will not work and the time is ticking before he will have to drop out. I do appreciate the effort though.

One last thing.

Capitalism is the most perfect of all the imperfect systems of economics. That the democratic party has a candidate that says this as a diss and he is not roundly booed shows that the fringe left in this country is becoming more delusional by the day. I know that might infuriate at some of you while you are reading this in a Starbucks on your i phone 11 but I promise you that you will survive.

Unlike Bernie’s campaign.

Viva la CAPITALISM!!!

Siblings Outraged by Their Brother’s Fatal Shooting Dismiss the Fact That He was an Armed Robber – ‘Oh Well!”

 

Westlake Legal Group tone-rochelle-rappley-crime-color-corrected-SCREENSHOT-620x353 Siblings Outraged by Their Brother’s Fatal Shooting Dismiss the Fact That He was an Armed Robber – ‘Oh Well!” Uncategorized tone rappley roosevelt rappley rochelle rappley Ohio Not Today Internet Guns Front Page Stories Featured Story dollar general dayton Culture crime Allow Media Exception

 

 

 

Two siblings are outraged at the shooting death of their brother.

An employee at a Dayton Dollar General gunned him down.

Tragically, 23-year-old Roosevelt Rappley was fired upon inside the store along the 2200 block of North Gettysburg Avenue Wednesday night.

Siblings Rochelle and Tone Rappley are furious.

Rochelle told local Channel 7 the worker had no business having a gun onsite to start with, let alone fatally targeting her brother.

Horribly, Roosevelt’s the pair’s second of ten siblings to perish from gun violence.

“[W]rong is wrong. That was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother in the chest…”

Tone’s in complete shock:

“I still don’t believe it. … [A]t the end of the day, I don’t believe my brother’s dead. … [I]t ain’t kicked in yet.”

Police have confirmed that the employee — who was legally allowed to possess a firearm — was indeed the gunman.

However, even given the shock of his shooting, Rochelle does grant Roosevelt partial responsibility:

“He’s got some responsibility, but not all!”

Reporter Molly Koweek summed it up:

“The pair acknowledges that [it] was wrong for Roosevelt Rappley to try and rob the Dollar General…but they say the clerk shouldn’t have had a gun at work.”

The worker wasn’t the only one packing heat:

“Police say…Roosevelt…showed a gun and demanded cash Wednesday.”

From WHIOTV:

In a 911 call, a man told dispatchers that a man with a gun attempted to rob him at the store.

“He pointed a gun at me,” the caller said. “I had a firearm on me. I pulled my firearm and I shot him in self defense.”

The caller also said that the suspect “shot back,” but it is not clear how many shots were fired during the incident.

[Lt. Jason Hall] told dispatchers that there [were] other staff in the store at the time and that the suspect pointed a gun at them as well.

Rochelle appears to believe the store employee was being reprehensibly petty:

“Yes, he’s robbin’ y’all — oh WELL.”

She thinks a little bit of decorum was in order:

“Call the police. That’s what y’all are supposed to do.”

Cops say Roosevelt might’ve been involved in other robberies, too.

But Rochelle is indignant:

“Y’all are not supposed to take matters into y’all’s own hands. If that’s the case, I’ll take matters into my own hands.”

We’re living in dangerous times, and care must always be taken. Roosevelt Rappley fell victim to a serial malady in this brutal world: He was victimized by the deadly threat of a loaded gun — while he was trying to do the same to others instead, as he robbed the snot out of them.

‘Journalist’ Soledad O’Brien Leads Discussion of Why Trump Supporters Are ‘Trash’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-13-at-11.40.25-AM ‘Journalist’ Soledad O’Brien Leads Discussion of Why Trump Supporters Are ‘Trash’ media bias Media Liberal Elitism liberal elites Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

We’ve always known that there are some Democrats and some in the liberal media who regard those on the right, those that make up a lot of Middle America, with something of a quiet disdain, that they are not as enlightened as the coastal elite, their betters, are.

Democrats like Hillary Clinton demonstrated this with her description of a good portion of Americans as “deplorables.”

Soledad O’Brien, who used to work for CNN, Al Jazeera and who has a show for Hearst Television, has now picked up on that theme, encouraging a discussion of how not just that President Donald Trump is a “racist” but his supporters are also “trash.”

David Gailen, whose bio describes him as co-creator, host, and executive producer of “The Jet Set”, a weekly, nationally syndicated travel lifestyle television show, then picked up the theme, mocking the looks of a Trump supporter at a Trump rally. “Total Trash! We shouldn’t ever be shy about calling them what they are. I liked this shot of the troll that we’ve all heard from.” Apparently, Trump supporters aren’t “jet set” enough for him.

He continued, responding to @rbduval77 who said “They all look the same like some other category of primate” but then later deleted his tweet.

Here’s a writer and editor, formerly with the Sac Bee and the Dallas Morning News. Obviously very objective.

What was ironic while these tolerant folks on the left were mocking a woman for her looks, which they would decry if anyone else did it, and claiming the Trump supporters were KKK or intolerant, outside the rally, the left was surrounding and attacking Trump supporters, knocking their hats off, chasing them down and spitting at them. The leftist “protesters” was harassing the police and calling them “pigs” and threatening them. Talk about acting like fascists and being all about hate.

And they wonder why people don’t trust media.

How did that work out when Hillary Clinton called Americans deplorables? They seem to forget why they lost.

CLIMATE FLASHBACK: In 1978 Mr. Spock Told Us Another Ice Age Would Be Here By Now.

LIVE LONG AND FREEZE

I love Star Trek. The whole notion that we survive the mess we see the world in now and actually get to go for drinks on the moon and take a quick spin around Jupiter for fun is just a warm and fuzzy concept.

The show became part of our cultural DNA and the stars of the show went out to successful careers in other areas. Leonard Nimoy A.K.A. Mr. Spock was one of these Trek stars that found other things to do while not on the bridge of the Enterprise.

Nimoy hosted a fantastic show called “In Search Of…from 1978 until 1982 and it covered a wide range of topics that were explored. Material such as, is there a bigfoot, UFO’s and the lost city of Atlantis were some of its episodes.

They also in May of 1978 covered something according to their IMDb page called “In Search Of… The Coming Ice Age”. Of course, with all the interest of climate change and the 1.5-degree shift of getting warmer and all of us dying in less than 12 years ( Not my words ask A.O.C.  Ocasio-Cortez says the world will end in 12 years. She is absolutely right.) I was absolutely intrigued.

Below is a video clip from that show.

Below I have taken some short clips that Nimoy says here to add my stellar commentary.

The data shows that the average temperatures in the Arctic have fallen dramatically over the last 30 years. In most locations, the drop has been 2 degrees centigrade.

According to NOAA we are up almost 1.42 F since 2000. I’m gonna call this a draw.

The whole Northern hemisphere has grown steadily cooler.

Check the NOAA link above. I guess we are getting warmer. Which is really nice for Michigan in Feb.

If we are unprepared for the next advance ( Ice Age) the result could be hunger and death on a scale unprecedented in all of history.

Whether it is massive ice sheets rolling our way or Florida flooding out, it’s always doom and gloom with these people. How about the world comes together like in the movie Independence Day and either does a huge BBQ or use the ice for drinks. CMON PEOPLE.

What scientists are telling us now is the threat of an ice age is not as remote as they once thought.

Well, scientists are telling us something different now. Now I’m not gonna blame them here. They get stuff wrong like this all the time.

During the lifetime of our grandchildren, arctic cold and perpetual snow could turn most of the inhabitable portions of our planet into a polar desert.

Nimoy has 5 grandchildren and from what the scientists are telling us is that we will be all fried before frozen. I’m not sure which one is worse actually.

What does this all mean?

That 41 years ago a show on network television with a beloved actor who played a character that relied on “logic,” scared the crap out of a 9-year-old Duke, making me think the ice was going to kill my family and I.

They were not just wrong but fabulously wrong.

Now those that believe the current dire warnings will say the technology is better, the computer models are more accurate and we have learned so much since 1978.

Well, how about if we do this as a test. Get the current weather reports you do EXACTLY RIGHT for 30 days, then we can chat about making predictions 40 years or 12 years maybe even just 30 months into the future.

Back in 1978, the climate alarmists used an actor who played a Vulcan ( who is not supposed to lie) as a messenger to get people ginned up about impending doom. In 2019 they used a 16-year Lil kid to do the same thing. They were wrong in 1978 and I’m willing to bet Al Gores billions that he made on this fantasy that they are wrong now also.

Predicting the weather, stocks or what women are thinking when they are really mad is a dangerous proposition. Doing any one of these things is just…

Illogical.

P.S. Kirk is the best Captain E-V-E-R.

James O’Keefe Announces ‘This may be the biggest story Project Veritas has ever broke’

Before leaving a Washington, D.C. stage last night, James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, told his audience:

We have one announcement to make real quick. Because of what Eric did, another person came to us. We’re proud to announce the next insider who will blow the whistle. He’s been recording for months, all of his colleagues, his bosses, his senior people. This may be the biggest story Project Veritas has ever broke. Next week, the next insider to blow the whistle on the next organization … is within CNN.

O’Keefe, the self described guerrilla journalist, said he will release “dozens of recordings made of officials at the highest levels of CNN, revealing a political agenda, bias and misconduct hidden from public view.”

O’Keefe said a CNN insider had conducted some “hidden camera muckraking” and that it will be the group’s “biggest story of the year.” He added that, “Based upon what the people in these tapes say, [the media] is no longer even doing legitimate news gathering.”

The whistleblower, who remains anonymous, allegedly said he “started at CNN with a dream to work in media, but my dream had become a nightmare.”

Obviously, CNN anchor Brian Stelter will play a starring role in the recordings. O’Keefe issued a warning to Stelter by tweet (below).

He wrote, “It might be time to recall the worst things you’ve said to CNN staff in the hallways, @brianstelter. Project Veritas has a reliable source who wore a hidden Westlake Legal Group 1f3a5 James O’Keefe Announces ‘This may be the biggest story Project Veritas has ever broke’ project veritas progressives Mainstream Media Liberal Elitism journalism james o'keefe Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news democrats CNN Brian Stelter Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

O’Keefe is a conservative political activist best known for going into left leaning organizations (academic, governmental, and social service organizations) under cover to capture abusive, embarrassing or even incriminating statements or actions. He has faced reprimand and even lawsuits over some of his projects. According to Wikipedia, he has been “criticized for selectively editing videos to misrepresent the context of the conversations and the subjects’ responses, creating the false impression that people said or did things they did not.”

He gained national attention for his video recordings of workers at Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) offices in 2009, his arrest and guilty plea in 2010 for entering the federal office of then-U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) under false pretenses, and the release of videos of conversations with two high-ranking, now former, NPR executives in 2011.

When his videos portraying ACORN workers seemingly aiding a couple in criminal planning hit the 24-hour cable news cycle, the U.S. Congress quickly voted to freeze funds for the non-profit. The national controversy resulted in the non-profit also losing most of its private funding before investigations of the videos concluded no illegal activity occurred. In March 2010, ACORN was close to bankruptcy and had to close or rename most of its offices.[9] Shortly after, the California State Attorney General’s Office and the US Government Accountability Office released their related investigative reports. The Attorney General’s Office found that O’Keefe had misrepresented the actions of ACORN workers in California and that the workers had not broken any laws. A preliminary probe by the GAO found that ACORN had managed its federal funds appropriately. One of the fired ACORN workers sued O’Keefe for invasion of privacy; O’Keefe issued an apology and agreed to pay $100,000 in a settlement.

O’Keefe has gained support from right-wing and conservative media and interest groups. In 2009, Andrew Breitbart commissioned him for the option to publish new videos exclusively on BigGovernment.com. In June 2010, O’Keefe formed a 501(c)(3) organization, Project Veritas.

AOC On Verge of Tears: ‘Dream of Motherhood is Bittersweet’ Because We Are On Brink of ‘Extinction’

Screenshot from this video

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took her climate show on the road on Friday, when she was in Copenhagen where she spoke at the C40 World Mayors Summit.

In her speech, she was near tears and railed against climate change, saying that our world was at the crossroads of “extinction” and that there could be no “middle road” in response.

From Daily Wire:

“The climate crisis is already here,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “On this note I speak to you not as an elected official or public figure, but I speak to you as a human being – a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future, and that our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus. I speak to you as a daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer.”

She blamed Hurricane Maria’s destruction in Puerto Rico in 2017 on climate change saying her own grandfather died “in the aftermath.”

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the disaster was “all because they were living under colonial rule, which contributed to the dire conditions.” She claimed that this was happening to people who had already suffered so much because of “imperialism.”

On the contrary, as the facts have revealed, local corruption and the failure of the local government have badly affected the island for years, despite billions poured in by the federal government. Governor Richard Rosello even had to step down after massive protests by the people because of unhappiness over his response in part.

She then claimed that media coverage of such disasters fails to mention climate change as a cause when in fact, they often do even if there’s no factual basis to support it.

“It is not a coincidence that the truth is controversial,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “None of this is a coincidence because climate change is not a coincidence or a scientific anomaly. Climate change is a consequence. It is a consequence of our unsustainable way of life.”

She spoke of fact and consensus but then claimed it was a fact that all three airports in New York would be flooded by 2080. She said if she had a child, “he, she or they,” would have to deal with a situation where their most critical infrastructure was underwater.

She decried the “runaway pursuit of profit” and argued that the only way to address climate change was to “change “society” and control the economy, on a level that had never been done before, to mobilize the change they desired.

But really it’s the other way around. The left and socialists need climate change to justify the radical desire to control the economy and completely change the system. That’s the real aim.

Here are a few facts from meteorologist Joe Bastardi for the non-scientist AOC.

President Trump asked “Where Is Hunter?” and now we know. He just stepped down from his cool board job with a Chinese equity firm.

According to Bloomberg

Hunter Biden is stepping down from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company and promising to forego all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, is elected president in 2020.

After months of keeping a relatively low-profile as President Donald Trump leveled a barrage of unsubstantiated accusations of corruption at him, the younger Biden is publicly vowing to avoid any conflict of interest.

According to a statement released on his behalf by his lawyer George Mesires, Biden said he’ll resign at the end of the month from the management company of a private equity fund that’s backed by Chinese state-owned entities. He also pledged that he wouldn’t work for any foreign-owned companies or serve on their boards during a potential Biden administration. He reiterated that he never discussed his business activities with his father.

Trump has been teeing off on Hunter and his business dealings with great success. If you have noticed the rivals for the Democratic nomination have been whimpering support for Biden while snickering in the background as Trump does their work for them.

Even for those that want to look at the bright side of things. Hunter Biden has absolutely been able to capitalize on his father’s political position. He was not the first but also not the last. Just the appearance of him having no experience and getting gigs on both Ukraine and Chinese companies scream of impropriety.

Is it fair? Probably not.

Has it been fair when the Trump kids have had the same done to them? Probably not.

Here is where my friends that are #NeverTrump seem to skip or be appalled at.

The Democrats have done this stuff for years. Stern editorials were written at the Weekly Standard and National Review on the practice of Democrats doing these things, yet it continued on. Candidates for all sorts of office on the left could virtually say that Republicans are trying to kill grandma and make sure you starve to death in old age. Talking heads would go on news shows and say how outrageous it was and the practice continued.

Trump has broken all the old rules and this is the clearest example of that.

He went DIRECTLY at Joe Bidens son.

He accused the Bidens of some shady dealings ( While there is no proof you sure as hell can make the case it looks shady) and he made it stick. While others in politics would have had their surrogates go out and do the dirty work, Trump says hold my non-alcoholic beer and goes and does it himself.

That is why his most ardent supporters love him.

Trump has probably wounded Biden so badly with this that even if Joe survives the primary he will be badly damaged for the general election. So if Biden does not make it Trump faces a weaker candidate nationally. If Joe does make it he gets to tee off on him 3 times on national stages for Presidential debates.

Either way with the rule book being re-written by Trump since he came down those escalators in 2015, the way that national politics is done has been forever changed.

Get used to it.
