WATCH: CNN’s Chris Cuomo Praises Antifa AGAIN

Leftist media and politicians seem to have a soft spot for the domestic terrorist group Antifa, specifically CNN’s Chris Cuomo who has once again made nice comments about them.

While on a panel during his show, Cuomo certainly seemed upset about the

“You talk about Antifa! I’ve watched them in the streets protesting in different situations,” said Cuomo. “There are certainly aspects of them that are true to a cause.”

“That is a good cause. They want social justice. They want whatever they want in that context,” Cuomo continued. “You tell me when that has ever happened with neo-Nazis. When they have ever been doing the right thing.”

After being called out about speaking kindly on a group that is just as bad as the neo-Nazis, Cuomo attempted to backtrack with a blatant lie, going so far as to say a person on his panel put the words in his mouth.

“I never said that. Stop resorting to the absurd,” he said.

To highlight some of the things Antifa has done, allow me to re-up what I wrote just the other day about Antifa after former VP and 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden called them “courageous Americans.”

To give you some examples, Antifa showed up to the home of Tucker Carlson where they attempted to gain access to his home. Carlson’s wife and children were forced to hide in the pantry as Antifa stood outside his home threatening Carlson’s safety.

Antifa recently attacked an elderly man for not obeying them in Portland, while police stood by and let it happen.

They have called for the assassination of Trump, and Steven Crowder went undercover and caused Antifa members to expose the fact that they were going to use deadly weapons against their opposition.

To be clear, they are labeled domestic terrorists by U.S. security agencies, and they live up to the classification.

Antifa is clearly the bad guy in any given situation. Cuomo is essentially shrugging off the many crimes and potentially deadly encounters they would have as “true to a cause” that he agrees with, at least on some level.

It should be noted that this isn’t the first time Cuomo, or even CNN painted Antifa as the good guys.

Before that, Cuomo argued that Antifa’s violence was better than the alt-right’s violence because Antifa’s violence fell to the left. Don Lemon attempted to call Antifa an “African-American organization,” which is a complete lie according to…CNN.

Given, I understand why Lemon would think this given the racist anti-white attitude Antifa carries around with them. They even put up signs warning that dating white people “will not be tolerated.”

Bill Barr and Department of Justice Tells Fat Jerry Nadler Where He Can Put His Subpoenas

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined at left by, Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., Rep. Bradley Schneider, D-Ill., and Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., prepare to walk out of the hearing room briefly after waiting Republican members of the committee to arrive more than an hour after the scheduled start time for a markup session, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 26, 2018. The panel was meeting on their months-long standoff with the Justice Department on the request by the Republican-controlled committee for documents related to the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation and the handling of its probe into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s emails. Democrats charge the subpoena undermines special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties and whether there was obstruction of justice. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Today Attorney General Bill Barr underwent questioning by the Senate Judiciary Committee. He was scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow but that does not seem to be in the offing.

This is the statement released by the Justice Department:

Westlake Legal Group doj-statement-on-barr-testimony-house-620x198 Bill Barr and Department of Justice Tells Fat Jerry Nadler Where He Can Put His Subpoenas william barr Special Counsel Robert Mueller republicans Politics New York Mueller report Jerry Nadler House Judiciary Committee Government Front Page Stories donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

About the same time, Justice responded to a subpoena for the full, un-redacted Mueller report by essentially telling Fat Jerry to, as my old man was fond of saying, want in one hand and sh** in the other and see which one gets full the fastest.

Nadler got all stompy-feet and claimed that Barr was “blackmailing” his committee

The Democrats and their fluffers are making all kinds of noise about jail and fines. That is simply nonsense. The House has to depend upon the Department of Justice to enforce any type of criminal contempt citation. If you think that is going to happen, you might want to research what happened to Eric Holder. In theory, the House can bring a civil complaint against Barr but by the time it makes it onto a docket, and is finally adjudicated, Nadler will be gumming pudding and wondering where he put his 46 x 22 trousers.

This is a preview of what the next year is going to be like. The Administration is going to stonewall the efforts by the various House committees and their leftwing jihadis. Every request is going to end up in court. At some point the clock is going to run out because after the 2020 election, no one will care about the Mueller report or Trump’s taxes. And if they keep on like this, there many not even be a Democrat House when President Trump is sworn in.

Ilhan Omar Breaks Silence, Goes to Bat for Murderous Dictator Maduro

Westlake Legal Group Omar-620x331 Ilhan Omar Breaks Silence, Goes to Bat for Murderous Dictator Maduro Venezuela Politics Nicolas Maduro Nancy Pelosi media bias islamist insane immoral Ilhan Omar garbage Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats DEMOCRACY NOW anti-American

Several normally loud voices on the left have been oddly silent about what’s going on in Venezuela. Not coincidentally, they are people who’ve previously defended Nicolas Maduro on some level or another. I’m speaking specifically of Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex, and Bernie Sanders.

The latter two have inexplicably still not commented, but Ilhan Omar finally broke her silence on Democracy Now, a far-left socialist mouthpiece.

Needless to say, her response was a complete dumpster fire.

“You know, I mean, a lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela. And we’ve sort of set the stage for where we’re arriving today,” the Minnesota Democrat said Wednesday in an interview with “Democracy Now!.”

This is pure nonsense. The sanctions we put on Venezuela had essentially nothing to do with the economic collapse there. In fact, until recently (well after things deteriorated) the only sanctions we had in effect were on specific members of Maduro’s ruling class. We were not embargoing their oil or sanctioning their economy at the point when people started eating dogs and carrying around suitcases of cash to buy breakfast.

“This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States,” Omar said on the progressive television program.

How morally bankrupt does someone have to be to say that regime change doesn’t help the people of Venezuela? On what planet are the people better off eating trash and living under a murderous, socialist dictator? You’d think this would be one thing Republicans and Democrats could agree on, but I guess not. I’ve heard some crazy things come out of the mouths of Democrats over the years, but this may actually take the cake for its pure insanity.

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel responded with this tweet.

What you are seeing here is the mask fully coming off. Ilhan Omar has no concept of actual American ideals and freedoms. She constantly sympathizes with radicals, dictators, and Islamists and none of it is an accident. That is her worldview, full stop. The fact that this person sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee is an absolute travesty and Nancy Pelosi should be made to answer for it.

The problem is that no one in the mainstream press are even seeking to press this issue. When I went to search for quotes from this insane interview, the only outlets reporting on it were right-wing news sources. How is a Congressional member blaming the U.S. while supporting a socialist dictator not worthy of headline coverage by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, etc.? The answer is that it is but these people are so biased that they’ll tolerate literally anything from Ilhan Omar and others like her. It’s disgusting.

Minnesota needs to wake up fast and not re-elect this woman to a second term next year. I get partisan politics covers a lot of sins, but this is a bridge too far. This is anti-American, pro-dictator garbage and it shouldn’t stand.

Ilhan Omar Says This Won’t be a Nation of White People, Pegs Trump for Synagogue Shooting

It’s fascinating to watch Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota congresswoman who made a name for herself by being extraordinarily antisemitic, attempt to make it seem like her obvious racism and bigotry is really the racism and bigotry of others.

While speaking during a rally called “Black Women in Defense of Ilhan Omar,” Omar suggested that President Donald Trump is actually to blame for the rise in antisemitism, specifically for the recent synagogue shooting in Poway, California.

The congresswoman began by claiming that Trump, “his goons in the Republican party,” and some Democrats believe that a black refuge immigrant Muslim shouldn’t be equal to them.

This absurdist logic continued as Omar proceeded to blame Trump — whom she calls an “occupant” of the White House — for the murders within the Jewish community, including the shooting in Poway.

“At this moment, the occupant of the White House and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is [sic] terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community,” said Omar to the audience present.

The clip cuts to Omar declaring that this will not be the country of white people.

“This will not be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few, this is the country of the many,” declared Omar.

Firstly, a proven antisemite putting antisemitic action at the feet of anyone is rich. This is the same woman who proclaimed Israel shouldn’t get to exist as a Jewish state, accused Congress of being paid off by Israeli special interests, and is a strong supporter of the BDS movement.

Asking her why she supports it will literally cause her to run away.

She also described 9/11 as “some people who did something.”

But proclaiming this won’t be a white nation is awfully racist. For one, imagine a white Republican saying such a thing about how this won’t be a “black nation” and the reaction would be wholly different. News organizations from around the globe would be covering it. Marches down Main St. would be televised by any and all.

Omar is an antisemite and a racist. Attempting to point at others and declare them racist as a way to distract from this obvious fact is doing no favors for Omar.

Low Energy: Joe Biden Stumbles and Slurs His Way Through First Campaign Speech

We’ve been assured that this indicates cognitive issues by liberals and that it makes you unfit for the Presidency. Will Joe Biden drop out by the weekend?

Biden kicked off his campaign (officially) in Pittsburgh yesterday to a crowd of Teamsters. It was the kind of crowd you’d expect him to be in front of, as blue-collar appeal is going to be his primary weapon against Trump. It’s what makes him so dangerous in 2020 compared to someone like Sanders.

Something went wrong, though, and Biden started slurring his speech like a 90-year-old drunk man.

I’ll admit, the entire scene was weird. Maybe he got too much Botox the other day or something? Being that I’m not a 76-year-old man, I have a hard time understanding what makes a person speak like that uncontrollably.

Do I think Biden’s performance here indicates mental debilitation? Nah, I doubt it and Trump has had a few similar episodes before. The bigger issue I see here is that it does call into question Biden’s ability to keep this up for another year and a half. If he’s already slurring his speech in his first major appearance, what’s he going to look like next summer? I’m already picturing a repeat of when Hillary passed out and was thrown into a van like a piece of meat

You can say a lot of things about Trump but no one can deny that he’s a machine when it comes to campaigning and public speaking. He can do rally after rally and seem as spry at the 40th one as he did at the first one. That’s an advantage he’ll have over someone like Biden, who’s so far been pampered and kept under wraps. Now the gloves are going to come off and we’ll find out if he’s got the stamina for what’s to come. Don’t be surprised if his fellow Democrats hit him on this point as well.

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA-15) wants women to know he’s on their side.

He’s pledged to pick one for his vice presidential running mate should he win the nomination.

He’s committed to passing the mic to women to show he respects the diversity of their opinions (except when he doesn’t).

And he’s now on record in support of adding an Equal Rights Amendment to the Consitution.

Why? Because the word “woman” doesn’t appear in the Constitution, y’all.

Needless to say, the tweet was seriously ratioed:

Several Twitter users were quick to point out that while Swalwell was technically right, his underlying point was, well, wrong:

And besides, the ERA wouldn’t add the word “woman” to the Constitution, either:

Section 1. Equality of Rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex.

Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

But as long as we’re gonna go with “words that aren’t in the Constitution”, there are also these:

They have have a point!

I want to apologize in advance for what I’m about to subject you to. Just to be clear, I take no pleasure in this but seeing as how I’ve seen it, and misery loves company, I’m going to have you suffer with me.

The comic about freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) titled “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis?” has some very fascinating depictions of politicians and their interactions throughout its pages.

In one panel we have AOC physically assaulting President Donald Trump and then shaving his head before putting him in jail. We also a shredded mike pence standing shirtless in front of a waving LGBT rainbow flag as we’re informed he sought forgiveness from the gay community. The NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch even makes an appearance.

But all of that is nothing compared to how the comic depicts House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Crazytown). The assault upon the eyes and mind is such that there isn’t enough bleach in the world that could scrub that stain from your mind.

Pelosi, to put it simply, is depicted as a very muscular woman. That’s not the worst part.

The worst part is that it depicts her coming out of the shower.

I’m not sure what the human race ever did to Ocasio-Cortez or her fans to deserve this. I can only assume that whatever malicious force is bent on the elimination of our species is using AOC as a conduit through which to channel its eldritch hatred, and has begun its assault on humanity with this devastating opening blow.

May God have mercy on our souls.

WATCH: Lindsay Graham Drops F-Bomb On Live TV

Lindsey Graham by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was pulling no punches and didn’t care who was watching when he was quoting President Donald Trump’s enemies while on live television, resulting in a nationally aired F-bomb by the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Graham was quoting former FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Stzrok during a text exchange between them during a hearing with Attorney General William Barr.

“‘Just went to the southern Virginia Walmart, I could smell the Trump support,’” Graham read. “October the 19th, 2016: ‘Trump is a f*cking idiot, he’s unable to provide a coherent answer.’”

Unlike the USA Today video, Graham’s words were not bleeped out.

“Sorry to the kids out there,” Graham added.

He continued on.

“These are the people that made a decision that (Hillary) Clinton didn’t do anything wrong, and that counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign was warranted. We’re going to, in a bipartisan way, I hope, deal with Russia, but when the Mueller report is put to bed — and it soon will be — this committee is going to look long and hard at how this all started.”

F-bombs aside, now that the entire plan to shame and oust Trump through the Mueller investigation has flopped, the tables will likely turn with Republicans pursuing leads all the live long day. However, unlike the Democrat’s witch hunt, we can expect to see some of these leads flesh out real wrongdoing.

Adam Schiff Makes a Ridiculously Stupid Request of AG Bill Barr

Westlake Legal Group schiff-bug-eyes-620x566 Adam Schiff Makes a Ridiculously Stupid Request of AG Bill Barr resign Politics Nonsensical Call Mueller report mueller media bias Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats bill barr Barr Summary adam schiff

There’s irony and then there’s whatever the heck this is.

Adam Schiff, who’s spent the last 2+ years lying about Russian collusion and living outside CNN in a tent, is now calling for Bill Barr to resign for…well, no one really knows what for.

This is all connected to the supposed “bombshell” that wasn’t last night. The media ran with a story purporting to prove that Barr lied and mislead with his summary letter of the Mueller report. The problem is that Mueller himself said he did no such thing.

Buried in the Post report and absent from the headline is this pretty important line way down in the body.

“When Barr pressed him whether he thought Barr’s letter was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not, but felt that the media coverage of the letter was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.”

In other words, Barr pushed back on Mueller’s silly complaints and got him to admit that Barr hadn’t misrepresented anything. Then we see Mueller fold and say he’s actually just upset with the media for misrepresenting the matter.

This morning, Barr testified under oath and further showed that last night’s outrage was misleading garbage. Jennifer Van Laar reported on it earlier in the day.

“I called Bob and said, ‘What’s the issue here?’ I asked him if he was suggesting that the March 24 letter was inaccurate and he said no, but that the press reporting was inaccurate….

…“But he was very clear with me that he was not suggesting that we had misrepresented his report.”

That’s not stopping the insanity from continuing. Some House Democrats are calling for an IG investigation.

Others, like Schiff, are making the nonsensical call for him to resign.

Actually,  there is actual sugarcoating of this that can be done, namely because Mueller himself said Barr’s letter was not inaccurate. So what’s Barr’s grave crime here again?

Facts never matter to Schiff though. He’s a crazed conspiracy theorist who’s continually given airtime on the major networks as some kind of unbiased expert on the Russia investigation. In reality, he’s a hack who’s grasping at every straw to keep this narrative alive.

No collusion found by Mueller? He’ll just tell you there’s still evidence in plain sight. No obstruction indictment handed down? He’ll just say that it doesn’t matter that Trump didn’t technically do anything illegal. Now, with the Mueller report being such a dud, Schiff is shifting to whining about a summary letter which isn’t even relevant anymore because we have the whole report already.

The only person in this equation who should resign is Schiff. He’s been proven to be a liar over and over. He’s misled the public about testimony, likely illegally leaked materials to the press, and he has done everything he can to obstruct the search for the truth about what really went on at the FBI/DOJ in 2016 and early 2017.

None of this is going to stop. The media and Democrats are fully invested in keeping this narrative alive. Furthermore, they know that if they can smear Barr enough, they might be able to kneecap the coming findings on the origins and handling of the Trump-Russia investigation. That could end up implicating a lot of the people screaming bloody murder right now. If there’s any justice left in politics, and I’m not sure there is, this won’t work and these people will be exposed sooner rather than later.

I’m Not a Globalist – But We Absolutely Should Protect Americans Abroad

The globalism debate – finally arrived in DC in or about 2015.

After percolating for decades in what DC considers America’s hinterlands – which is the vast expanse of America between its coasts.

Globalism – per the dictionary:

“The development of social, cultural, technological, or economic networks that transcend national boundaries; globalization.”

Globalism per DC:

At least a half century spent subjugating US interests – to every other nation on the planet.  So as to expedite the exodus of American companies – to cheaper locales abroad.

DC didn’t care if other countries screwed US with massive tariffs, import limits and domestic subsidies.  Because the companies whose bidding they were doing – didn’t care.

Because these companies were already out of America – and in those other countries.  And those countries’ tariffs, import limits and subsidies – were now helping them…rather than hurting them.

Meanwhile, US domestic policy kept getting worse and worse.  We kept jacking taxes and piling up regulations.

And companies, rather than fight for governmental sanity – fled the insanity and followed their cohorts abroad.

Lather, rinse, repeat for fifty years – and you get President Donald Trump.

Thanks to President Donald Trump, we are rightly rolling back this half-century-plus of abject governmental stupidity.  Companies are returning to our shores in droves.

However….

We have a LONG way to go to undo all the damage done.  Even if the Trump approach is applied for decades – there will still be companies that should be here…that are still over there.

And, of course, there will always be American companies that do business abroad.  Because even the most passionate nationalist (which I consider myself to be) – knows there is money to be made out there beyond our borders.

And as has always been the case:

It is the job of the American government to protect American citizens – no matter where they are.  Absolutely including when they are engaged in commercial activities.

Thomas Jefferson and James Madison – our third and fourth Presidents – absolutely thought so:

“The Barbary Wars were a series of conflicts that culminated in two wars fought at different times over the same reasons between the United States, Sweden, and the Barbary states (the de jure possessions of the Ottoman Empire, but de facto independent, Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli) of North Africa in the late 18th and early 19th centuries….

“At issue was the Barbary pirates’ demand for tribute from American merchant vessels in the Mediterranean Sea. If ships of a given country failed to pay, pirates would attack the ship and take their goods, and often enslave crew members or hold them for ransom.

“When Thomas Jefferson became President of the United States in March 1801, he refused to pay tribute and sent a United States Naval fleet to the Mediterranean; the fleet bombarded various fortified pirate cities in present-day Libya, Tunisia, and Algeria, ultimately extracting concessions of fair passage from their rulers.

“James Madison, Jefferson’s successor, directed military forces for the second war in 1815, shortly after the conclusion of the War of 1812 against the British.”

US businesses were getting screwed.  And Jefferson and Madison – had their backs.

Two-centuries-plus later – we still face the exact same problem.

America First – Must Include Demanding Foreign Govs Unfreeze Americans’ Coin:

“(US company) KGL (Investment has) made much of its money in Kuwait – and now wants to return much of it to the US.

“Enter Middle East cronyism.

“The Kuwaiti and Dubai governments – have frozen KGLs coin for no reason whatsoever.  Well, no legitimate reason.

“Behold Agility Logistics.  A Kuwaiti company – with close ties to the Kuwaiti government.  Agility’s CEO, Essa Anwar Al-Saleh – is a former Chairman of Kuwait’s Gulf Bank.  So he exercised significant power over Kuwaiti commerce and finance.

“And it appears Al-Saleh still does.  Agility is a KGL competitor – with the home court advantage.  The Kuwaiti government appears to be freezing KGLs coin – to benefit Agility.”

“Not satisfied with crucifying just the company – Kuwait is going after its executives.

“When Leaders Land In Jail: Prominent Gulf Businesswoman Gets Ten Years, Vows To Appeal:

“Marsha Lazareva, (chief executive and vice-chairman of the private equity group KGL Investment), has vowed to appeal her conviction for misusing public funds in Kuwait after being sentenced to ten years hard labor.”

“‘Ten years hard labor’ – ain’t Club Fed.

“Lazareva is a Russian national – but she has a five-year-old America-born child.  And the charges against her – appear to be as bogus as those against her company.”

It certainly seems so.

Kuwait Government Faces International Tribunal over Jailing of Russian Businesswoman:

“Lazareva(’s)…lawyers…say the charges brought against her were ‘demonstrably false’ and the case amounted to a ‘show trial.’…

“Her lawyers say she was denied access to one of the hearings and on other occasions the defence team was not permitted to introduce its own witnesses and was refused access to critical documents….

“‘Ms. Lazareva is the subject and victim of a politically-motivated vendetta initiated by powerful persons and entities, as well as competitors and rivals in Kuwait, against KGLI, KGL, and TPF,’ the (lawyers’) notice says.”

This is orders-of-magnitude bogus:

“Kuwait is attempting to smear as many KGLI people as possible – in an attempt to make their crony garbage case against KGLI look less like crony garbage.

“This heinousness began in 2018.  More than a year later – Kuwait ain’t behaving any better.

“Despite the fact the contingent demanding Lazareva’s release – keeps getting bigger.

“Kuwait Refuses Release of Female CEO Held Over a Year on False Charges:

“‘The Port Fund confirmed today that a Kuwait court has refused to release Marsha Lazareva, a prominent member of the international business community, who has been subject to unlawful detention and other human rights violations for the past 15 months.’”

President Trump – absolutely needs to do what Presidents Jefferson and Madison did.

Protect our citizens – and their businesses.

And when real heinousness arises – get them out of hostile foreign hands.
