News Breaks that Andrew McCabe Will Be Charged By the DOJ and the Flop Sweat Builds

Westlake Legal Group mccabe-crawling News Breaks that Andrew McCabe Will Be Charged By the DOJ and the Flop Sweat Builds prosecution Politics lying leaking Lacked Candor Justice james comey Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI donald trump doj democrats CNN charged bill barr Andrew McCabe

Color me surprised. It looks like the DOJ has finally decided to hold someone accountable for what went on during the Hillary-Trump investigative fiasco.

Former FBI Assistant Director and current CNN talking head, Andrew McCabe, failed to convince the DOJ not to move forward with prosecution against him after a last ditch effort to change their minds. This report is coming via Fox News. The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, who’s been killer on this beat, also confirms this story is accurate.

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.

McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.

A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”

This comes in response to the Inspector General finding that McCabe had lacked candor (i.e. lied) to the FBI multiple times involving leaks to the press.

There’s also the factor of McCabe suing the FBI last month that plays into this. Perhaps McCabe’s arrogance wrote a check his butt can’t cash? Trying to sue when he was clearly fired for just cause likely only emboldened the U.S. Attorney to press forward with prosecution.

We can’t mention McCabe without talking about CNN either. Despite the IG report and all the facts known about McCabe, CNN hired him on as an “analyst” last month in a widely mocked move. Is there any wonder that network is cratering in the ratings and has lost all credibly?

Drink the schadenfreude in.

This is the beginnings of what justice looks like. After every single Trump lackey who looked at an FBI agent the wrong way was charged during the Mueller saga, it would have been untenable for the DOJ to then look the other way at their own committing the same crime.

While this certainly won’t gain back the trust these institutions have lost, it’s a start in the process. Bill Barr is doing things the right way and if the indicators we are seeing tell the story, he’s not done yet. More prosecutions are coming.

There’s going to be a lot of new flop sweat building among people who thought they were in the clear.

Michael Flynn’s Legal Team Throws Down the Gauntlet

The case of Michael Flynn’s plea deal, which he made after being strong armed by Robert Mueller’s virtuous troop, continues to drag out. This time, Flynn’s lawyers are back in court and they are going hard at the DOJ’s conduct.

As the Washington Examiner Reports, Flynn’s legal team is presenting their case to the presiding judge that the DOJ continues to hide evidence that could exonerate Flynn.

Mike Flynn’s attorneys said the government is hiding evidence that could help President Trump’s former national security adviser.

Sidney Powell, the head of Flynn’s new legal team, claimed in court Tuesday the Justice Department withheld evidence related to Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Comey, Flynn’s FBI interview notes, and more.

“There never would’ve been a plea to begin with” if Flynn knew how much information DOJ was hiding, Powell said. Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 for lying to investigators about conversations with the Russian ambassador.

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who is presiding over the case, gave Powell an unusual amount of leeway as she argued the government withheld information from her client to pressure him into accepting a guilty plea, which he never would’ve done had he been aware of all the facts. Flynn’s sentencing has been delayed for a year as he cooperated with the government.

When you look at how Flynn was entrapped, it’s obvious the FBI/DOJ are hiding something here and want to save face. We know Flynn did nothing illegal by participating in the phone call with the Russian Ambassador during the 2016 transition period. We know the agents who interviewed Flynn did not think he was lying. We also know Flynn was strung along by Andrew McCabe and James Comey, who presented the interview as just a friendly chat, without revealing he was under any kind of investigation.

But more things are being exposed now. Namely, that the DOJ knew Flynn had not violated the Logan Act, but still used it to threaten and force him into a plea deal.

She claimed documentation exists that shows then-FBI deputy director McCabe ruled out Logan Act charges against Flynn in January or February of 2017, yet DOJ “egregiously” held the possibility of being charged under the 18th-century statute over his head during plea negotiations anyway.

Powell said the defense still hadn’t been given access to all the interview notes from Flynn’s discussions with FBI agents, including one written by agent Joe Pientka that the government claims it no longer has.

I can hear the rebuttals now. “Well, it’s his fault for taking the plea.” Nonsense. When you have Robert Mueller, with unlimited resources, bringing the entire weight of the federal government down on your head and financially destroying you, you take the plea to the lesser charge. There’s also been much talk that Mueller threatned to go after Flynn’s son as well.

None of this happened on the up and up. Mueller wanted a scalp and Flynn was one of the few he could take while still bandying a “Russian collusion” story line, even though the phone call itself turned out to be nothing.

For the DOJ’s part, they argue they did give Flynn the text messages in question.

Brandon Van Grack, formerly of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who now heads up DOJ’s FARA unit, told the judge that “following the court’s standing Brady order has always been the guideline the government has pursued.” The prosecutor said that, before Flynn’s plea deal, Flynn had been made aware of the Strzok-Page texts “before the public knew they existed.”

“The government has never alleged that Mr. Flynn was an agent of Russia,” Van Grack said. “He pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about particular issues related to Russia, not about being an agent of Russia.”

Again, this is nonsense. Flynn only pleaded out because the government were threatening him (and his son) with FARA and Logan Act violations. Now the DOJ wants to claim they were never worried about Flynn being a Russian agent. That’s some serious spin by the government. You can’t use something to beat someone into a decision and then claim that something was never relevant to the decision being made. Of course it’s relevant, going all the way back to whether Flynn had all the information necessary to make the right choice on taking the plea deal.

This kind of game playing by the DOJ and Mueller is exactly why no one trusts these agencies anymore. If Flynn had evidence hidden from him, the plea should be vacated. As it stands though, it doesn’t appear Judge Sullivan, who’s more than shown his bias in this case, wants to do that. Instead, the more likely scenario here is that Flynn isn’t sentenced to any jail time.

Man Calls Trump a Slur, Here’s How Kamala Harris Responded to Him

Westlake Legal Group Kamala-Harris-TH-620x317 Man Calls Trump a Slur, Here’s How Kamala Harris Responded to Him slur Politics Mentally Retarded media bias lying kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Election donald trump democrats CBS campaign 2020

Kamala Harris has stepped in it again.

Fresh off letting you know she wants to control every aspect of your life at CNN’s climate change town hall, Harris hit the campaign trail again. She’s currently languishing in a distant fourth place in the Democrat primary and needs any boost she can get. While in New Hampshire, she took a comment from man ranting about impeachment.

Then things escalated.

“I don’t buy that argument that impeachment does not make sense; the Senate will acquit. I don’t buy that argument. There needs to be accountability. What are you going to do in the next one year to diminish the mentally retarded actions of this guy,” said the man, as some in the audience chuckled.

“Well said,” Harris responded. “Well said.”

“I plan to win this election, I’ll tell you that.”

Harris’ reaction didn’t sit well with with even some liberals, who see using the phrase “mentally retarded” as highly offensive. Worse, Harris then decided the best response to to lie and say she didn’t hear the man.

If you watch this video, this isn’t just improbable, but impossible. She heard it, no question.

Of course, the media are buying her story because that’s what they did. Get a load of this headline.

She also laughed and said “well said,” but I guess that context wasn’t important to CBS. It must be really nice to be a Democrat politician. Not only can you get away with anything, but the media will go out of their way to present you as “above the fray.”

The simple fact is that Harris is just bad at this. I haven’t bought into her campaign from day one. Even after everyone was on her bandwagon after the first debate, I wrote an article here opining she was a sucker’s bet. She’s just a terrible, inauthentic candidate. Way too many people bought into the idea that because she’s black and a woman, that she was going to rocket to the top.

It hasn’t happened and it’s not going to.

The Washington Post Just Straight Up Lies About a Trump Quote, Then Doubles Down

Westlake Legal Group Washington-Post-Fake-News-620x178 The Washington Post Just Straight Up Lies About a Trump Quote, Then Doubles Down the washington post Politics Poland Nazi Invasion misleading lying Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news double down donald trump democrats Congratulate Aaron Rupar

But do tell me more about how we should trust our moral, unbiased betters in the mainstream media.

Yesterday, Donald Trump was asked if he had a message for Poland on the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion. Part of the answer he gave is that he wanted to “congratulate” Poland and this led to the snark being unleashed at The Washington Post, because they are really smart and stuff.

President Trump is known to make the odd comment here and there about foreign nations, often because he doesn’t seem particularly versed in what’s happening in them. But even by his standards, this was quite a weekend.

Trump was asked Sunday about the trip to Poland he canceled to monitor Hurricane Dorian. Asked if he had a message for that country, which was commemorating the anniversary of the start of World War II, Trump decided to … congratulate it?

So did this really happen? Did Donald Trump actually congratulate the Polish on being invaded by the Nazis as the headline and lead in state?

In a word, no, no he didn’t. Here’s the full quote with the full context, which is actually in the Post article, yet their editors still thought framing it the way they did was a honest portrayal.

I do have a great message for Poland. And we have Mike Pence, our vice president, is just about landing right now. And he is representing me. I look forward to being there soon.

But I just want to congratulate Poland. It’s a great country with great people. We also have many Polish people in our country; it could be 8 million. We love our Polish friends. And I will be there soon.

He was congratulating them on being a “great country with great people.” That’s the very next line, so there is no confusion about what he was saying.

You see, great countries with great people often have a tendency to survive incredibly trying situations and oppressive horrors. The Polish people did that, from the Nazis to the Soviet occupation. This shouldn’t be difficult to understand, but the Post’s Aaron Blake (who fancies himself as a “fact-checker” of sorts) is either too much of a hack or too intellectually vapid to give an honest account here. Nowhere does the President congratulate them on being invaded or even suggest such. It’s not just an uncharitable reading of his comments, it’s so ludicrous as to show immense bias by any reporter who would present it as such.

Given the actual context, what’s the Post do? Why, they double down of course and up the snark to eleven.

Man, they are just so smart and so knowledgeable, aren’t they? I’m glad we have them here to set us straight. Also, want to know where the Post first got this story from?

I actually saw the original tweet by Rupar before the Post ran with it. Even then, it was obvious Trump hadn’t said what he was being accused of. Rupar’s entire shtick is to selectively edit clips of Trump and present them as accurate translations so he can snark and scoff. Amazingly, the media don’t go after him for it despite the fact I’ve been assured selectively edited videos are harmful. I guess that treatment is reserved for fork lift drivers in New York who make meme videos.

These outlets are just pure garbage at this point, only worthy of mention to critique and ridicule.

Joe Biden Just Makes Up a War Story While Campaigning

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-8-620x317 Joe Biden Just Makes Up a War Story While Campaigning War Story the washington post senile Politics Mental Capacity lying Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story Election democrats Campaigning Afghanistan 2020

This seems fine.

Joe Biden can’t stop committing gaffes, although I question whether it’s even accurate to call making something up a gaffe. It’s probably more accurate to just say he lied.

Fox News delivers the details of this latest episode. It starts with Biden recounting that he flew into Afghanistan, through the teeth of danger, to honor a Navy Captain. The problem is that basically none of what he says is true.

According to Biden, he brushed off concerns about the risk of him traveling to the deadly area. “We can lose a vice president,” he said, recounting his words to a crowd during an event on Friday. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” His story involved the captain dramatically telling Biden he didn’t want the medal because his comrade ended up dying.

But after speaking with more than a dozen military and campaign sources, the Post determined the event “never happened” and that “almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.”

“It appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story,” the Post’s Matt Viser and Greg Jaffe wrote.

They added that Biden rattled off a slew of inaccurate facts in the span of just a few minutes.

“In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony,” Viser and Jaffe wrote.

Biden has a habit of this, and I’m not talking about his habit of making things up or forgetting where he is. I’m talking about him continually painting himself as being much more than he actually was as Vice President. We saw it with his ludicrous descriptions of dealing with Ukraine, where he presented himself as levying threats and getting things done, as if he actually had the power to make any decisions without Obama’s approval. Here, Biden inserts himself as a would be war hero, risking his own life to do well by a service member. In the end, his story comes off as simply using the military as pawns to promote how great he is, and that’s a problem even without the inaccuracies.

Of course, the inaccuracies are also a problem. When nearly every detail in a story turns out to be wrong, that doesn’t say a lot about Biden’s current mental capacity. He’s either really bad at lying or he’s honestly mixing up details and events to a striking degree. Neither is good.

At least he didn’t claim to be dodging sniper fire like a certain past Democrat nominee, so he has that going for him.

The Media and Global Elites Are Lying to You About the Amazon Fires

Westlake Legal Group 281460a8-8b0a-4a9d-bb75-4a60d090268f-620x317 The Media and Global Elites Are Lying to You About the Amazon Fires Propaganda Politics political Marcon lying Hysteria Global Warming g7 Front Page Stories Front Page France Featured Story democrats Climate Change burning Brazil Amazon Fires

For the past decade, we’ve seen normal events become sensationalized to the point of hysteria. Take hurricanes for example.

In order to push climate change as a means for acquiring political power, the left have decided to present every hurricane as proof positive of the vast negative, deadly effects of the earth warming. It doesn’t matter that we are actually seeing less hurricanes in the current decade than the decade before or that 2019 has been incredibly quiet as far as hurricanes go. The moment a storm finally appears this year, it will be bandied about for political reasons.

We are seeing much the same tactics used in regards to the fires currently burning in the Amazon. Celebrities and politicians the world over are shouting on Twitter, sharing photos, and making wild claims about the severity of what is going on.

That’s not to say that the fires are good or that there aren’t more of them this year. It is to say the overall picture being painted is almost wholly false and sowing unnecessary fear to play politics.

Here’s Mike Shellenberger, someone who’s studied this for a long time and lived among the people of the area, writing in Forbes to try to bring some levity to the situation.

Singers and actors including Madonna and Jaden Smith shared photos on social media that were seen by tens of millions of people. “The lungs of the Earth are in flames,” saidactor Leonardo DiCaprio. “The Amazon Rainforest produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen,” tweeted soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. “The Amazon rain forest — the lungs which produce 20% of our planet’s oxygen — is on fire,” tweeted French President Emanuel Macron.

And yet the photos weren’t actually of the fires and many weren’t even of the Amazon. The photo Ronaldo shared was taken in southern Brazil, far from the Amazon, in 2013. The photo that DiCaprio and Macron shared is over 20 years old. The photo Madonna and Smith shared is over 30. Some celebrities shared photos from Montana, India, and Sweden.

It should surprise no one that same group of people who are always beating the drum that the earth is on the verge of calamity chose to purposely lie and share fake photos to push their narrative. Their lying, misleading, and misrepresentations are nothing new.

But let’s deal with the actual claims being made.

Is the Amazon really producing 20% of the world’s oxygen and is it the “lungs of the earth?” It sure sounds dire, but in reality it’s a mostly nonsensical claim.

I was curious to hear what one of the world’s leading Amazon forest experts, Dan Nepstad, had to say about the “lungs” claim.

“It’s bullshit,” he said. “There’s no science behind that. The Amazon produces a lot of oxygen but it uses the same amount of oxygen through respiration so it’s a wash.”

What about the assertion that the Amazon is burning at an 80% higher rate than 2018? As with many things, context matters and the media are purposely leaving it out.

But the “lungs” myth is just the tip of the iceberg. Consider that CNN ran a long segment with the banner, “Fires Burning at Record Rate in Amazon Forest” while a leading climate reporter claimed, “The current fires are without precedent in the past 20,000 years.”

While the number of fires in 2019 is indeed 80% higher than in 2018, it’s just 7% higher than the average over the last 10 years ago, Nepstad said.

One, the idea that anybody could possibly know with any actual authority that these fires haven’t happened for 20,000 years is ludicrous. Secondly, the reason the reason fires are 80% higher this year than last is because last year was an unusually low year for fires. There is no actual existential emergency here.

In fact, there were higher incidences of burning over the course of 2003-2008 than the current five years. The Amazon wasn’t “lost” or destroyed. Amazingly, trees grow back.

What is happening in the Amazon is not exceptional,” said Coutinho. “Take a look at Google web searches search for ‘Amazon’ and ‘Amazon Forest’ over time. Global public opinion was not as interested in the ‘Amazon tragedy’ when the situation was undeniably worse. The present moment does not justify global hysteria.”

And while fires in Brazil have increased, there is no evidence that Amazon forest fireshave.

Further, deforestation is down 70% from the early 2000s. Over half the Amazon is completely protected from deforestation by law and the increase in fires this year is not from climate change, but rather from farmers needing to burn land for crops and cattle.

In other words, what’s happening is completely preventable. It’s not an uncontrollable, environmental threat to the world due to global warming. You are not going to stop getting oxygen to your lungs because of a 7% increase in Amazon fires over the last decade.

Enough of the lying. It’s incredibly transparent that this is political given the same climate change hysterics who freak out about hurricanes and thunderstorms are latching onto this. Brazil doesn’t owe the rest of the world anything and they need to be allowed to manage the situation without the French president or Hollywood celebrities injecting false information into the debate. It only creates division and makes it harder to work with the farmers in question.

Marcon and others should stay in their lane. This isn’t it.

A Media Outlet Finally Dug Into the Epstein-Clinton Ties, and Surprise, Clinton Lied Again

Westlake Legal Group 34_politics002-drew-angerer-edited-580.v1-620x414 A Media Outlet Finally Dug Into the Epstein-Clinton Ties, and Surprise, Clinton Lied Again the daily beast sex abuse relationship Politics Pedophile Island lying Jeffrey Epstein Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page flights Featured Story evil Disgusting democrats democrat contacts connections Bill Clinton

Over the past few weeks, I wrote a few pieces pointing out the absurdity of the media’s coverage of the Jeffrey Epstein travesty.

For the opening act, the major networks and papers were really interested. Why? Because there was a member of Trump’s administration that worked on Epstein’s sweetheart plea deal. That was all the hook the media needed to make the story about Donald Trump.

But then something happened. Alex Acosta resigned and the hook was gone. Suddenly, the media didn’t care anymore. The story died overnight because there was no longer a vehicle to attack Trump, so who cares, right?

A little less than a week later, they had their hook again though. A meaningless, irrelevant video emerged showing Donald Trump dancing awkwardly at a party in 1992 and it suddenly put Epstein back on the front page. You see, Trump had briefly conversed with Epstein at this party, along with hundreds of other people. Scandalous right? It didn’t matter that no relevant connections between Epstein and Trump actually existed. Yes, they knew each other. Epstein also knew every other member of New York high society. In fact, Trump would ban Epstein from his resort over a decade later after he was made aware of predatory conduct. Not only that, he went to the police and helped the victim. What a monster.

While the media were laser focused on whatever they could do to make Epstein’s evil an Orange Man Bad story, the real news continued to be ignored. Namely, that Bill Clinton had been on Epstein’s plane multiple times, without secret service, and with underage girls on board. This got a slight mention in a Vanity Fair piece, which inexplicably focused on Donald Trump being told there were picture of Clinton on Epstein’s pedophile island. You’d think the big news wouldn’t be Trump being told that but that there were possibly pictures of Clinton on an island famous for sex trafficking and child rape. But nah, Vanity Fair didn’t even push the issue. They published Clinton’s denial and went back to riffing irrelevancy about Trump.

Perhaps the tide is turning though. Today, we’ve finally got a major media outlet doing some investigative work on the connections between Epstein and Clinton.

If you’ll recall, the former President put out this statement a few weeks back.

Now, we already know Clinton is lying about the flights, as the logs do not match up with what he says and that there were at least seven flights taken without his staff and secret service. That seems like a pretty big deal, but the media (outside of a few conservative outlets) hasn’t touched it for obvious reasons.

Further though, Clinton’s statement gives the impression that he barely knew Epstein and that their relationship was limited. He lists his only other encounter as being a brief meeting in 2002.

Surprise, surprise, according to The Daily Beast, Clinton lied again.

How Epstein entered Clinton’s orbit remains unclear. When the president released his initial statement on Epstein, he did not explain the multiple other trips he appears to have taken on the financier’s plane—including one flight to Westchester with Epstein, his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell, and an “unnamed female.”

Clinton also failed to mention the intimate 1995 fundraising dinner at the Palm Beach home of Revlon mogul Ron Perelman, where Clinton hobnobbed with the likes of Epstein, Don Johnson, and Jimmy Buffett. (Nearby, at Epstein’s own Palm Beach mansion, the money man allegedly abused hundreds of underage girls.)

The two were clearly chummy by the early Clinton Foundation years, as attested to by a 2002 photo of Epstein and Clinton in Brunei that appeared in Vicky Ward’s 2003 profile of the financier. In a 2002 piece for New York magazine about the Africa trip, Clinton praised Epstein as a “highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist.”

Not only were Epstein and Clinton far more connected in 2002 than his statement indicated, they were palling around in the 1990s as well.

Documents in the Clinton Library, however, attest to much earlier links between Maxwell, Epstein, and the Clinton White House.

In late September of 1993, Bill and Hillary Clinton hosted a reception for supporters who had contributed to recent White House renovations. The nearly $400,000 overhaul—which included new gold draperies and a 13-color woven rug for the Oval Office—was funded entirely by donations to the White House Historical Association, a private organization that helps preserve and promote the White House as a historical monument…

…Guests for the event, according to the invitation list, included the journalist and philanthropist Barbara Goldsmith, heiress Jane Engelhard, political consultant Cynthia Friedman, and “Mr Jeffrey Epstein and Ms. Ghislaine Maxwell.” Epstein and Maxwell do not appear on the ‘regret list,’ and there is a letter ‘A’ next to both of their names, indicating they planned to attend. A press release from the event, put out by Hillary Clinton’s office, lists Epstein as a White House Historical Association donor.

Clinton’s relationship with Epstein was not just in passing. It wasn’t a conversation at a party. It was extensive. The facts directly contradict what Clinton told the media just a few weeks ago. Yet, not a single media outlet has bothered to question him or his wife on the discrepancies. Until this Daily Beast report, we hadn’t even got any investigative reporting into it. Instead we got full throated parroting of his narrative. As I’ve said before, it’s good to be a Democrat.

All of these earlier contacts would lead us to the 2010’s where Clinton would be a guest at least 26 times on Epstein’s plane. As I noted earlier, on those manifests were names of underage girls who would later be revealed as victims of Epstein. Are we to believe Bill Clinton just didn’t notice them? Further, Bill Clinton has a ton of money. Why would he need Jeffrey Epstein to fly him around? Even more disturbing, one victim actually pinpoints Clinton as being on Epstein’s island where some of the worst abuse took place.

The Daily Beast has, to their credit, gathered some new evidence to show that Clinton is being dishonest here. Will the media run with it and demand answers or will they sweep this back under the rug? My money is on the latter.

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

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

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

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

That led to this bizarre, ridiculous scene.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If that doesn’t scream remorseful, what does?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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