FBI knew Steele lied, did not tell FISA court

2018_02 08 Steele lied memo
On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a “much-less redacted,” version of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s criminal referral of dossier author Christopher Steele.

It shows that the FBI KNEW Steele LIED about his contact with media outlet and DID NOT disclose this very pertinent information to the FISA court.

The Daily Time Waster

It has snowed every day since Sunday. It’s supposed to stop some time today and start again Thursday night and be non-stop until sometime Saturday. We’ve only gotten about 7″ so far, but may be looking at more than a foot before it’s done. I made a living driving a truck along rural roads for decades, but now that I’m retired I get somewhat stressed out by adverse weather conditions.

Just a bunch of unrelated stuff which may or may not interest you.

Mississippi House Approves Earliest Abortion Ban at 15 Weeks

On Friday, lawmakers in the state House passed HB 1510, by a vote of 79-31, with some Democrats joining in with Republicans to approve it.

According to the Associated Press, Rep. Becky Currie, the bill’s sponsor, said about the 15-week cut-off for abortion, “At that time, it’s time to decide whether you’re going to carry this child or not.”

House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Andy Gipson (R) said the bill is just as much about protecting women as babies.

“Women deserve real health care, not some fake health care that involves the destruction of human life and a woman’s health,” he said.

FBI Lovers’ Latest Text Messages
Obama ‘wants to know everything’ … when he’s not supposed to be asking about the Clinton email case and when he said he hadn’t been involved in it in any way.

Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.

Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.”

DIANNY HAS AN INTERESTING POINT:  All roads lead to Obama

Trust me. Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, the Democrat Party leadership — these people do not like Hillary Clinton.

In fact, I’d venture to say they despise her. And her husband. And her buck-toothed bitch of a daughter.

Oh, and her little dog too!

They’re not protecting Hillary. As far as they’re concerned, Hillary can rot in prison.

No. They wouldn’t go to all this trouble to utterly corrupt our entire criminal justice system just for one old, decrepit, corrupt hag they hate with a passion.

You don’t go to these lengths to protect someone like that.

This isn’t about protecting Hillary. This is about protecting Barack Hussein Obama.

You know it. I know it.

Julián Castro tells NBC he has ‘every interest in running’ for president in 2020

Former Housing and Urban Development secretary and San Antonio mayor Julián Castro told NBC News he has “every interest in running” for president come 2020.

Further fanning rumors is his planned speech at the New Hampshire Young Democrats Granite Slate Awards later this month, where he is being touted as “a national rising star of the Democratic Party.”

From out of the slime, Sidney Blumenthal rears his head again

BLUMENTHAL IS ONE OF THE MOST VILE, DESPICABLE VERMIN TO EVER SLITHER OUT OF THE D.C. SLIME PIT.

When the question of who cooked up the gross, repulsive contents of the Steele Dossier is asked, is anyone surprised the name of Hillary Clinton’s consigliere, Sid Blumenthal, comes up?

Blumenthal has that kind of mind, and sure enough we read of him again. This time, there’s a new memo, created by Senate Republicans Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham about the creation of the Steele dossier, and apparently one of the contributors was Sid Blumenthal.

Blumenthal, you recall, was an assistant senior advisor to President Clinton from 1997 to 2001, the prime Clinton scandal years, following a career as a writer for the New Yorker.

He was a prime witness in the grand jury testimonies over the Monica Lewinsky scandal and famous for leaking creepy stories about the Ken Starr special prosecutor investigation to the press, and came to be known as a man who would do anything for the Clintons.

He got a reputation so slimey that even Rahm Emmanuel, who became President Obama’s chief of staff, wouldn’t allow him near the Obama White House.

Black Lives Matter leader shot dead
AT LEAST IT WASN’T A COP.

Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d’Baha, was found dead Tuesday morning after being shot in the thigh while riding his bicycle, the Advocate reported.

Adam Schiff sent his staff to try and collect ‘classified materials for the FBI’ after Russian pranksters told him Putin had NAKED blackmail pictures of Trump
DEMOCRATS WILL JUMP AT ANYTHING TO GET TRUMP.

Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member of the House Intel Committee was recorded speaking to Russian pranksters who spun elaborate ‘kompromat’ tale.

He told Vocan and Lexus, two radio pranksters who have also hit Nikki Haley, that he would pass their claims to the FBI in a call made last year.

The duo posed as a fake Ukrainian politician to say Trump had sex with Russian glamour model Olga Buzova after a Miss Universe pageant in 2013.

In the call they said Putin had been passed naked pictures of Trump and now-president had used secret codes for talks with Russians.

Duo gave emails to DailyMail.com which showed Schiff’s staff trying to arrange to collect ‘classified’ documents from Ukraine’s embassy in D.C.

Schiff’s office claimed he was not fooled by the call and reported it to ‘authorities’ but did not explain why his staff kept up correspondence

Elaborate story: The two claimed that Trump had an affair with Russian glamour model Olga Buzova after a Miss Universe pageant in 2013 – and that naked pictures of him were passed to Vladimir Putin by his ‘goddaughter’ Ksenia Sobchak.

Russian pranksters Vladimir ‘Vovan’ Kuznetsov, 30, and Alexei ‘Lexus’ Stolyarov, 28, called Schiff and persuaded him to stay on the call for seven minutes as they outlined their fake claim.

Hakeem Jeffries to Trump: ‘How dare you lecture us about treason’

Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries slammed President Trump for suggesting it was treasonous for Democrats not to applaud during his State of the Union and questioned whether the president and his officials have themselves engaged in treasonous acts.

“Treason is not a laughing matter,” Jeffries, of New York, said during a speech on the House floor Tuesday. “It is a serious crime embedded in the Constitution, punishable by death. But since your commander in chief chose to raise it at a political rally, let’s have a discussion about treason.”

RNC TROLLS Democrats In New Ad: ‘What Do You Stand For?’

Maxine Waters Ready for Breitbart Pushback While Leading Trump Impeachment Drive
THIS IS ALL A SHOW FOR HER 200K HOMIES IN WATTS.

According to Elle’s puff piece, Waters “touched on the attacks that the Republican party and, in particular, Breitbart have launched against her—she noted that she’s frequently referred to as Mad Max.”

“When you make a decision, and you know that decision is controversial, you know that you’re going be up against people who are going to fire back at you,” she reportedly said. “I’m prepared to suffer the consequences of my actions, and I don’t fall backwards into this stuff. And so, the consequences will be there, but I’m prepared to deal with that.”

[CtH: “Mad Max” seems mild compared to the things she’s said about our president.]

Taking back the House will be harder than Democrats think

They are on track to have a record number of candidates running, led by a surge of women and veterans. According to the latest compilation by the Campaign Finance Institute, nearly 60 percent of Republican-held districts have a Democratic challenger who has raised at least $50,000; two years ago, fewer than 20 percent had reached that threshold by this point in the cycle.

All of that is a good thing for any party. Except when it leads to large, messy primaries.
In suburban Virginia, for instance, Democrats worked hard to recruit state Sen. Jennifer T. Wexton (Loudoun), a former prosecutor with deep roots in the district, to take on Rep. Barbara Comstock, one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country.

Sarah Sanders Destroys CBS Reporter Over Trump Treason Remarks

A Bold Prediction

It is a well-known fact that Democrats will do anything to get what they want — lie, cheat, break laws, commit perjury. The ends justifying the means is the only thing that motivates them — retaining power and control to impose their will on a deeply divided country.
Obama, Lynch, Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein, the whole sordid bunch, are spokes in a massive wheel. At the hub is Hillary Rodham Clinton. They were willing to stop at nothing to make her president while simultaneously destroying Donald Trump.
The FISA memo confirms what we already knew. It is important that the truth come out, if only for posterity. When you hear predictions that indictments are coming or people are going to jail, it’s all for the benefit of the half of the country that believes in the rule of law. My prediction is that none of these major players will ever be indicted, much less tried. It is not possible to find an impartial jury in Washington D.C. that would convict any of them.
New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez went on trial for corruption and bribe taking in connection with his major donor, Dr. Solomon Melgen, who had already been convicted of 96 counts of bribery and Medicaid fraud. Of the 56 count indictment against Menendez the jury hung on every one of them. You only need one or two ringers to hang any jury and this snake pit is crawling with them.
The democrats also have a secret weapon against being held to any serious consequences:
The Attorney General refuses to do his job and Trump will not remove him. He has stood quietly on the sidelines while the Democrats commit felonies with impunity. It would not be a surprise if they are blackmailing him the way many (including me) think they are doing with Chief Justice John Roberts, who ruled Obamacare constitutional on grounds that were never argued. He just made them up.

Jeff Sessions on Nunes memo: “No department is perfect”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement Friday following the release of the controversial Nunes memo alleging FISA abuse by the FBI and Department of Justice.

The Memo Reveals the Coup against America
The memo has been released, now it’s time to release everything.
The memo isn’t treasonous. It reveals a treasonous effort by the Democrats to use our intelligence agencies to rig an election and overturn the will of the voters.

Memo Revelation: Dossier Author Admitted He Was ‘Desperate’ that Trump ‘Not Get Elected’
“In September 2016, Steele admitted to [former FBI official Bruce] Ohr his feelings against then-candidate Trump, when Steele said he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president,” the memo states. “This clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files—but not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.”

Memo confirms Obama’s corruption
Barack Obama not only went down in history as the worst president, but he has now shoved aside Nixon as the most sneaky and corrupt.
The Obama Scandal is the abuse of power by a president and his operatives to undermine the election — and then to sabotage the regime change.
The release of the memo confirms the former. We have known about the latter for a long time.
“Federal employees worried that President Donald Trump will gut their agencies are creating new email addresses, signing up for encrypted messaging apps and looking for other, protected ways to push back against the new administration’s agenda,” Politico reported.

Obama Admin’s First Request to Spy on Trump Campaign Was Rejected by FISA Court — So They Added the Fake Dossier Knowing It Was Lie
We now know that the FISA requests to spy on Carter Page were based on the discredited and bogus fake Trump dossier created by Fusion GPS and that the dossier’s origin was not reported to the court.
We also know that all of these requests were signed off on by the Obama Administration’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch and that the first request to spy on Trump was denied by the FISA Court.

Alan Dershowitz reacts to the FISA memo release

House Memo Released; Reveals Discredited Dossier Paid for by Hillary used by FBI to get FISA Warrant to Spy on Trump Campaign
The damning Memo also includes the fact that Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified under oath to the House Intelligence Committee that without the use of the Dossier, the FBI would not have sought a FISA Warrant. So it was key.
So, if you step back from this Memo, it reveals that the Top Leaders of Law Enforcement in the United States used discredited political dirt from the Democrat Candidate for President to get a FISA Court under false pretenses to allow them to spy on her Republican Presidential Opponent during a Presidential Election. Their goal was to prevent Trump from being elected, and then became to bring down his Presidency.
You can argue all the nit-picky things you want about the Memo. But this central reality cries out for Justice.

Why Did the Democrats Lie So Baldly about the Memo?
Adam Schiff, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, among seemingly dozens of Democrats, not to mention half the mainstream media, had been warning us for days that the release of the memo authored by Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee would place our national security at grave risk. “Sources and methods” would be revealed.
Now that we have seen the memo, it’s clear that was an absolutely bald-faced lie of the most obvious sort. Nothing in it impacts national security in the slightest. There’s no mention whatsoever of any “sources and methods.”

Seven takeaways from the House memo detailing FBI’s surveillance abuses
Republicans released a long-awaited memo Friday detailing government surveillance abuses, showing that the FBI would not have obtained a surveillance warrant for the Trump campaign without using information from a dubious partisan dossier.
Here are seven take aways:
⦁ The FBI relied heavily on Democratic Party dossier to obtain three surveillance warrants before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FBI did not tell the court the information came from a Democratic Party-financed opposition research. FBI knew source.

TRUMP WILL NOT FIRE MUELLER… HE BELIEVES HE WILL BE FAIR

Report: Mueller may indict Trump just to make a point
Rep. Ken Buck, who is a former federal prosecutor, tells Politico an indictment of Trump “would create a constitutional crisis.” Trump is within his rights as president to fire the FBI Director. So an indictment for obstruction based on the firing would amount to Mueller’s assessment that Trump fired Director Comey for the wrong reasons, something Rep. Buck says would be “unique in the history of the country.” Of course, we’ve seen courts interpreting Trump’s executive orders on immigration in a similar way, i.e. not arguing the president lacks authority but that his prior statements prove his motives were unconstitutional.

Memo Says Spy Warrant Would Not Have Been Sought Without Dossier
The memo also says that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told congressional investigators that the FISA warrant against Page would not have been granted without reliance on the dossier.
The campaign and DNC’s law firm, Perkins Coie, hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS in May 2016 to investigate Donald Trump. Fusion in turn hired former British spy Christopher Steele to look into Trump’s dealings in Russi

On The Same Day Trump Releases the Nunes Memo, A Federal Judge Keeps The Comey Memos Secret
On the same day the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the Nunes memo showing the FBI relied on the salacious and unverified Trump dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a federal judge ruled to withhold the Comey memos. The memos, authored by former FBI Director James Comey, are about his nine private conversations with President-elect and President Trump.
U.S. District Judge James Boasberg, who ruled in favor of the FBI’s request to keep the Comey memos secret, also sits on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FISA court is the same court that approved the surveillance on Trump associates.

NeverTrump Rallies to Defend Deep State, Dismiss Memo
Fusion GPS’s initial research on Donald Trump was funded, via the Washington Free Beacon, by billionaire Paul Singer, “a major funder of the #neverTrump campaign.”
So it is perhaps no surprise that the members of NeverTrump defended the dossier and attacked Friday’s memo.
MSNBC’s Rick Wilson, who markets himself as a “GOP Media Guy” on his Twitter profile, derided supporters of President Donald Trump as “mouthbreathers” while dismissing the memo’s revelations as unimportant.

But Wait… There’s More!

The #2 man at the FBI, Andrew McCabe was pushed out/resigned/terminated yesterday. The fact is he was placed on ‘permanent leave of absence’ until March when he can retire with full benefits… to the tune of $1.8 million. He will likely then get a six-figure job as a lobbyist on J Street where old politicians go to continue raking in big money. Congress voted to release the FISA memo, which will once again demonstrate how dirty and morally bankrupt the Democrats are and how deeply the system has been corrupted. Despite all the sh*tstorm, I still maintain nobody of any import is going to jail.

Andrew McCabe’s Pension Is Worth About $1.8 Million

Top FBI official retires after scrutiny for handling of Clinton email investigation

By multiplying McCabe’s highest average salary of $157,800 by 1.7 percent, for each of his first 20 years of service, he receives an annual $53,652 pension. He receives an additional 1 percent for one year of service, having served since 1996. This gives McCabe an additional $1,578, giving him an annual pension of $55,230.

New Acting Deputy Director Replacing Andrew McCabe Previously Worked With Comey to Hide Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting From Press
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN ADMINISTRATION WITH SO MANY OPERATIVES ON THE INSIDE WORKING TO BRING IT DOWN.

It appears McCabe is the first victim of the FISA MEMO.

The swamp immediately struck back. The new Acting Deputy Director of the FBI replacing Andrew McCabe, David Bowdich worked under Comey. In fact, he may be a witness in the ‘Trump-Russia’ investigation because Comey had a conversation with him about Trump asking the former FBI Director to supposedly ‘back off its probe into General Flynn’.

Even worse, Bowdich was involved in the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting conversations with Comey as they scrambled to hide the scandalous meeting from the public.

Joy Reid Reprimands Another Republican: “We Say ‘Democratic’ Party Here”

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING DEMOCRATIC ABOUT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.

“You’re new to our show, but we say ‘Democratic’ party here.”

The Two Republicans Who Voted Against The 20-Week Abortion Ban
I GET SO TIRED OF THESE TWO.

The Senate voted 51-46 in favor of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was short of the 60 votes required to proceed to a final vote under current Senate rules.

Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine both voted against the bill, which would have prohibited abortions on unborn babies after 20 weeks, the age at which they can feel pain, with exceptions in cases rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.

[CtH: These two always vote pro-abortion, but there are 2 or 3 Democrats who are strong on our side.  If they change the Senate’s rules, this could pass.  Planned Parenthood will instantly challenge it in the courts, so it won’t save many lives right away, but it will move the issue back to the SCOTUS docket eventually.  A large majority of Americans favor it and Ginsburg is older than dirt, so we can pray with realistic hope.]

Hillary Clinton reads from ‘Fire and Fury’ at Grammys

CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE SHUT HER UP?

“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” the former Democratic presidential candidate read from the book, before Grammy host James Corden told her she had the award “in the bag.”

Along with Clinton, Corden’s bit of searching for the best narrator of Wolff’s book included Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, DJ Khaled and other stars.

Former Democrat Congresswoman Corrine Brown Turns Herself In To Prison, Still Draws Her Congressional Pension

SHE WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS…SHE’LL BE OUT IN TWO OR THREE AND WILL IMMEDIATELY GET RE-ELECTED.

The bus paused at the prison complex’s entrance and waited for Bishop Kelvin Cobaris to cross the highway and get on board.  Cobaris had parked across the street from the prison, awaiting Brown’s arrival. Cobaris, who is the president of the African American Council of Christian Clergy, described himself as Brown’s spiritual advisor.

It’s unlikely that we will be able to see Corrine Brown’s mug shot. Unlike county and state corrections facilities, federal prisons rarely release mug shots.  Brown will continue to collect her Congressional pension while she’s in prison until the appeals process has been exhausted.

Former investment banker and self-styled Wall Street whistleblower Charles Ortel is one of the foremost experts on Clinton Foundation corruption. According to Ortel, “examination of available facts demonstrates the Clinton Foundation and its network of false-front charity “initiatives” and affiliates remains the largest set of unprosecuted charitable frauds in American history.”


The FBI has asked retired Australian policeman-turned investigative journalist, Michael Smith, to provide information he has gathered detailing multiple allegations of the Clinton Foundation receiving tens of millions of mishandled taxpayer funds, according to LifeZette.

One report after another from various media outlets have shown strange coincidences involving the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation would receive huge donations from donor X only to have donor X magically get favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department around the same time.

Judge acquits Sen. Menendez on some charges

A federal judge has acquitted New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez and his friend Salomon Melgen of several charges, according to a new order filed Wednesday.

The order from Judge William Walls comes days after the Justice Department announced that it would retry its case against Menendez. The original trial, which took place in the fall of 2017, ended after the jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict on any of the 18 counts in the case.

THIS IS WHY I STATE WITH CONFIDENCE THAT NO IMPORTANT DEMOCRAT WILL EVER SEE ANY PRISON TIME BECAUSE THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM HAS BEEN SO HOPELESSLY CORRUPTED.

[CtH: Thankfully, GOD’s justice is perfect!]

Walls wrote in a 50-page opinion that while political contributions can be the subject of a bribery case, the prosecution in this case did not demonstrate an explicit “quid pro quo” agreement between Menendez and Melgen in relation to Melgen’s contributions.

Sessions DOJ Moves To Protect Deep State AGAIN, Warns Against Releasing FISA Memo Without FBI Review

The Sessions Justice Department is calling on House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) to allow the FBI to review the “shocking,” FISA abuse memo to ensure its release will not harm national security.
SESSIONS IS STILL PROTECTING HIS FRIENDS

While on the face on it, the Justice Department’s request is both logical and prudent. However, once in possession of the memo, which is likely to expose the role of top level FBI and Justice Department officials in using the Steele dossier to obtain FISA spy warrants, what do you think bureau officials will do? Wage a fierce PR campaign against it and the Republican lawmakers who demand the memo to be released.

James Woods Says What We Are All Thinking About Jeff Sessions and ‘Missing’ FBI Text Messages

It is obvious to anyone paying attention that Jeff Sessions has no control over the Justice Department.  Jeff Sessions has pretty much surrendered the DOJ to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein thanked Sessions for the exchange of power by appointing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to carry out a coup d’etat.

AG Sessions has the ability to unrecuse himself and end this Mueller witch hunt once and for all but he continues to sit on the sidelines as Americans watch Mueller take scalps.http://thegatewaypundit.com/2018/01/james-woods-says-thinking-jeff-sessions-missing-fbi-text-messages/

Steve Schmidt Dismisses Reports of Corruption in FBI as a ‘Smear Campaign’

John Kerry Tells Palestinian Official in London – “Trump Will Not Remain in Office Long”

John Kerry met with a top Palestinian official in London recently.  Kerry told the Fatah leader to stay strong because Trump will not be in office long.  Kerry also hinted that he may run for office again.

During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to “hold on and be strong.” Tell him, he told Agha, “that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President Trump’s demands.” According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.

John Kerry tells Mahmoud Abbas ally that he might run for president in 2020 as he urges Palestinians to ‘play for time’ and ‘not give in to Trump’

Former secretary of state told a close confidant of Mahmoud Abbas that he’s considering another run for the White House.  Urged Palestinians to ‘play for time’ while Trump is president and said he could broker a separate peace deal with Israel.  Lebanese academic who met with Kerry in London relayed the conversation back to the Palestinian Authority, and an Israeli newspaper reported it.  Kerry, 74, was the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004 but lost to George W. Bush.

Sessions Threatens Sanctuary Cities With Subpoenas

The Justice Department warns it may subpoena documents explaining illegal alien-shielding policies.
TOUGH GUY…GO AFTER CITIES WHERE YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING AND TRY TO ENFORCE FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS IN STATES THAT HAVE MADE IT LEGAL. BUT DON’T PROSECUTE YOUR FRIENDS. NOPE, NOPE, NOPE.

“I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.

“Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law. We have seen too many examples of the threat to public safety represented by jurisdictions that actively thwart the federal government’s immigration enforcement—enough is enough.”

THEY JUST WANT THE VOTES. PERIOD.

Cuomo wants to let Dreamers go to college for free

Cuomo tucked a provision in his $168 billion budget plan that would amend state education law to make the undocumented students eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship program, which covers tuition costs for students from families with incomes of up to $125,000.

On Tuesday, he said the state would continue providing Medicaid to Dreamers regardless of any federal changes to the Deferred Action Childhood Arrival Program, or DACA.

Mayors boycott White House meeting after administration threatens sanctuary cities

The leaders of New York, Chicago and New Orleans were among the Democrats who snubbed the Tuesday afternoon event after the Justice Department sent a threatening directive to their cites and 20 other cities and counties over their sanctuary policies regarding immigrants.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, president of the mayors conference, also said the Justice Department’s attack on so-called sanctuary cities moved him to boycott the White House meeting.

“I cannot in good conscience as president of the Unites States Conference of Mayors go to a meeting under false pretenses,” he said.

The list of invitees made public by the White House did not include Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, whose city is also one that the Trump administration has challenged over sanctuary policies. His office said he was invited and opted not to attend.

[CtH: Are they all going to hold their breath and kick their heels on the pavement until mean Donald gives them what they want?]

De Blasio abruptly cancels White House meeting with Trump

“I came down here ready to have a serious meeting and what I got was a publicity stunt from Trump,” Hizzoner told reporters in Washington D.C.

“He said, ‘Come over to my house but I’m going to take your wallet while you’re there.’ It was a slap in the face to our cities and our people.”

Trump lashes out at mayors boycotting White House event
The mayors who choose to boycott this event have put the needs of criminal, illegal immigrants over law-abiding America,” Trump told a group of mayors who attended the event. “So let me tell you, the vast majority of people showed up.”

The president spoke after the Justice Department threatened to legally compel almost two-dozen cities to show that they are cooperating with federal immigration laws.

Pelosi Tries to Extend $137,000 Tax Break for Two of Her Multi-Million-Dollar Homes

Congress’s wealthiest woman plays the tax game too: Pelosi rushed to pre-pay property taxes after decrying GOP tax overhaul as middle-class tax hike and corporate giveaway

Largely thanks to her husband Paul, a real-estate and venture-capital investor, Pelosi is the wealthiest woman in Congress with a net worth of more than $100 million and the seventh wealthiest member overall, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
In fact, assets and cash disclosed in her 2016 financial-disclosure statement places Pelosi in the top one-tenth of the 1 percent of Americans.

Pelosi’s annual property tax bill alone on three luxury homes last year—$137,000—is more than twice the 2016 U.S. median household income of $59,039, which the U.S. Census reported last fall.

It’s a Trap

Dirty Cop Mueller Gunning For Trump – Seeks to Question POTUS About General Flynn and Comey
New Strzok-Page text messages are shaking Mueller’s witch hunt to the core, however; the Special Counsel continues to proceed with his witch hunt against President Trump.
The 4 page FISA memo is set to be released soon so Robert Mueller is moving as fast as he can to interview President Trump. He is gunning for the president.
Robert Mueller previously grilled James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions according to a New York Times report.
Now he wants Trump. The ultimate goal of the Russia witch hunt is to remove a duly elected president.
http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/01/dirty-cop-mueller-gunning-trump-seeks-question-potus-general-flynn-comey/

The president thinks he has nothing to fear because he’s done nothing wrong. That is of little import to liberals. Mueller is sharpening his knives and licking his chops over the prospect of Trump saying anything he can attack him with.
Recall when Scooter Libby was convicted of not remembering something the same way another witness did. One of the jurors carped that they were disappointed they only got Libby when it was Cheney’s blood they wanted. If Trump goes through with this, Mueller will charge him with something.

DEMOCRATS ARE DETERMINED TO TAKE BACK POWER…BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY
New California Policy Opens Door To Illegal Immigrant VotingCalifornia this spring will begin automatically registering adults who obtain or renew a driver’s license to vote, including potentially large numbers of noncitizens and immigrants illegally living in the state.
“You’re setting the state up for a disaster. They don’t seem to have a process in place to verify that people are who they say they are. It’s a free-for-all, a process that can be manipulated,” said Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, a national organization that unsuccessfully pressed Gov. Jerry Brown to veto the law allowing automatic voter registration.

Swing State Florida Could Add More Than One Million Felons To Voting Rolls
ADD THAT TO THE HALF MILLION HAITIANS WHO FLED HERE
If passed, the ballot measure could have a significant impact on election outcomes in the state.
President Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Florida by 112,911 votes in the 2016 election. That’s less than one tenth of the number of felons who would rejoin voting rolls if the measure passes. Just under 1.5 million Floridians were barred from voting in the 2016 election due to felony convictions, according to The Sentencing Project.

Bad news for GOP: Pennsylvania Supreme Court tosses state’s congressional maps
It is difficult to exaggerate how damaging this ruling is to the GOP chances of holding the House.
The GOP may have just lost as many as four seats in the House—certainly at least one.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled, by a vote of 5–2, that the state’s congressional districts amounted to an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander.
And here’s an even greater shock— the PA Supreme Court just so happens to have five Democrats and two Republicans
It is difficult to exaggerate how damaging this ruling is to the GOP.
Democrats need to win a net of 23 seats to take back the House. This decision may hand them 3 or 4 right off the bat.
But here is what happened in Pennsylvania: in 2015 Democrats won three supreme court vacancies in a clean sweep, ending the Republican majority. Democratic organizations, like the League of Women Voters that spearheaded the lawsuit in this case, realized they could exploit the results to circumvent the legislature and get a new map, all while never setting foot in a federal courthouse.

N.Y. Democrats unveil ad campaign to ‘replace and repeal’ federal tax law
ALBANY — The state Democratic Party — controlled by Gov. Cuomo — unveiled a “replace and repeal” ad campaign tied to the federal tax act.
Cuomo previously announced a campaign that would target at least six New York congressional Republicans as part of an effort to help flip the House to the Democrats in the November elections.
Again accusing Republicans in Washington of “having declared war on New York,” Cuomo, as part of the upcoming state budget talks, wants to find a way to revamp New York’s tax code to limit the impact of the federal law.

California To Business Owners: Half Of Your Savings From Trump’s Tax Bill Belongs To Us
The Democratic Party thinks your money is their money (typical) and the state legislature in California is making that explicitly clear. They’re pushing for business to fork over half of their tax savings to the state because this is what you get when Democrats are in charge.
As a constitutional amendment, the bill would require approval from two-thirds of the Legislature to pass, a difficult hurdle now that Democrats have lost their supermajority. If passed and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, it would then go to voters for final approval.
Yeah, this would be a sure thing, but a few state Democratic representatives in Sacramento have been accused of gross sexual misconduct, which has led to chaos within the state party. This fiasco has cost the party their supermajority—at least for the beginning of 2018. How dare businesses get tax relief: the motto of a California Democrat.

Democrats just got rolled. They can blame Barack Obama.
During his 2008 campaign, Obama promised in a conversation with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos to make passing immigration reform one of his first legislative priorities, and even set a timetable. “I cannot guarantee that it is going to be in the first 100 days,” he said. “But what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I’m promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible.”
If he had wanted to act, he could have. Obama’s party controlled the House, and Democrats had a 60-vote filibuster-proof Senate majority. If Obama really wanted to pass either the Dream Act or comprehensive immigration reform, Republicans were powerless to stop him. But he didn’t do it.

Evidence suggests a massive scandal is brewing at the FBI
DEMOCRATS DON’T PROSECUTE DEMOCRATS
As one former federal prosecutor put it, “It doesn’t get worse than that.” That prosecutor, Joseph ­diGenova, believes Trump was correct when he claimed Obama aides wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower.
These and other elements combine to make a toxic brew that smells to high heaven, but most Americans don’t know much about it. Mainstream media coverage has been sparse and dismissive and there’s a blackout from the same Democrats obsessed with Russia, Russia, Russia.

Texts reference a “Secret Society” working against Trump

2016_03 04 Page Strzok texts

Peter Strzok (pron. struck) and his FBI colleague and mistress Lisa Page (pron. not his wife) exchanged tens of thousands of anti-Trump texts during the 2016 race.

The FBI claims its servers somehow failed to retain the text messages the couple exchanged between December 14, 2017 to May 17, 2017, but lawmakers have access to 50,000 others.

Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) says these 50,000 texts suggest there may have been a “secret society” of folks within the DOJ and FBI working against Trump.

Sen. Ron Johnson says, “There is an indication” that there was “a number of high level FBI officials holding offsite meetings” on how to bring down President Trump.

18 U.S. Code § 798 – Disclosure of classified information

IRAN: From Vice President Pence: “The last administration’s refusal to act ultimately emboldened Iran’s tyrannical rulers to crack down on the dissent. The Green Revolution was ruthlessly put down, and the deadly silence on the streets of Iran matched the deafening silence from the White House. To this day, many Iranians blame the United States for abandoning them in their hour of need. Today, the Iranian people are once again rising up to demand freedom and opportunity, and under President Trump, the United States is standing with them. This time, we will not be silent.”

IRAN: The U.S. Treasury Department announced it’s placing new sanctions against five Iranian entities over ties to the country’s ballistic missile program and said that “additional sanctions targeting human rights abuses would be forthcoming.”

TAX CUTS: To date, more than 100 companies are giving “Trump bonuses” after the Republicans’ historic tax victory. “There is a broad and deep tsunami building,” John Kartch of Americans for Tax Reform tells the paper, as businesses across the country look to raise wages, increase charitable giving, and extend bonuses.

REFUGEES: Violent crime in Germany rose by about 10% in 2015 and 2016. A study found that 90% of that crime was attributed to young male refugees.

The Midnight Ride of Pistol Pete

My beloved child bride was tending Miss Olivia, who wasn’t feeling well, so I turned in about 8:00PM. Someone locked the bottom door of our apartment building, which is broken and there is no key for, just the deadbolt that all tenants can open. She had to ring the buzzer shortly after 9 and I’ve been up since.

I leave for work in an hour and a half so I thought I’d take a minute to post some things I didn’t get around to yesterday.

One week from today is the showdown in Alabama. Trump has finally given his full support to Judge Moore and the RNC is funding his campaign again. This seems to be a sign they know he’s going to win despite their best efforts to screw him over. The left, though, never gives up. They sense that Roy Moore is heading toward victory.

Alabama voters doubt accusations enough that they may feel comfortable sending a message of contempt for Washington, both D.C. and Post

If there was a turning point in Roy Moore’s political fortunes, it was the press conference Gloria Allred held with accuser Beverly Nelson, who emotionally described what she said was a sexual assault behind a diner at which she worked. That press conference gave Moore two things he needed politically: a chance to make Allred an issue in the campaign, and a piece of physical evidence to attack, the handwriting in the yearbook.

Soros Army in Alabama to Register Convicted Felons to Vote Against Roy Moore

HEY, IT HELPED THE DEMOCRATS WIN IN VIRGINIA.

The aim of the effort has been to get as many felons as possible on the roster before last Monday, the deadline to register in order to vote in Alabama’s Dec. 12 senate special election that pits Republican Roy Moore against Democratic challenger Doug Jones. The man spearheading the campaign has stated outright that his effort is meant to ensure a Democratic victory in Alabama.

The thousands of felons reportedly newly registered over the past few weeks were most likely not included in any recent polling on the Alabama senate race put out by major firms.

Feinstein: Case ‘Being Put Together’ Against Trump For Obstruction of Justice

Democrat Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, said on Meet the Press that it is becoming clear that President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey represents an obstruction of justice — a case she believes special counsel Robert Mueller is now focused on.

Puerto Rican Refugees Could Flip Florida, Put Impeachment in Play
I HEARD THIS ON RUSH TODAY… THIS IS FRIGHTENING
Remember the big hurricane that wiped out Puerto Rico? The publisher of a newspaper in Puerto Rico is reporting that, by their count, 320,000 Puerto Ricans have immigrated to the United States. Seventy percent of them to Florida. Now, the publisher of the Puerto Rican newspaper says that all of these people are very disappointed in the response of the Trump administration to help Puerto Rico recover. She believes by the end of 2018 there will be nearly 400,000 to 500,000 immigrants — think illegal immigrants — in Florida, and, if 60% of them register Democrat, then Florida ever voting for a Republican presidential candidate may be lost for as long as we can see.

Collins said she received a promise that the Senate would consider two bipartisan pieces of legislation that would ostensibly mitigate the negative effects that could come from the tax bill’s repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate. Flake said he received a “firm commitment from Senate Leadership and the administration” to work on a permanent protections for the soon-to-be-ended Obama-era program that shields children of undocumented immigrants.

Report: FBI Agent Dismissed From Mueller’s Russia Probe Changed Comey’s Language on Clinton to ‘Extremely Careless’
THERE WAS A REASON FOR CHANGING THE WORDING.

The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” which may appear pedestrian at first glance, reflected a decision by the FBI that could have had potentially significant legal implications, as the federal law governing the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties for “gross negligence.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, raised questions over why the change was made after receiving documents from the FBI last month, but the identity of who was behind the edit has not been reported until now.

Byron York: In Trump-Russia probe, was it all about the Logan Act?

2017_12 05 Logan Act toon by Terrell
In short, there’s no doubt the Logan Act, a law dismissed as a joke or an archaic irrelevancy or simply unconstitutional by many legal experts, played a central role in the Obama administration’s aggressive and enormously consequential investigation of its successor.

Democrats began accusing Trump of Logan Act violations in the summer of 2016, immediately after the Republican convention, when Trump sarcastically invited Russia to produce the 30,000-plus emails that Hillary Clinton deleted rather than turn over to investigators. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said during a July 27 news conference. “I think that you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press — let’s see if that happens, that’ll be nice.”

[CtH: This should read, “It is vital we do something to rebuild the trust we threw away in our non-stop efforts to promote Democrat politicians and policies.”]

Michael Flynn… It’s Complicated

Actually, not so much when you get right down to it. Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. He could have been charged with a number of other offenses. This led to speculation that he flipped and is cooperating with the Mueller inquisition in his jihad against President Trump. The Dow plunged about 300 points after the news broke but gained most of it back by the end of the day. At this point it’s all speculation. Trump’s attorney says it’s a nothing burger, as does Andrew McCarthy. The left is making messes in their underwear at the fantasy of the president’s demise dances in their heads like so many sugar plums. I went to Yahoo, which is as hard left as HuffPo, and tried to read some of the comments. They were absolutely giddy at the thought of a possible impeachment.

Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty to Lying to the FBI; Now Cooperating with Mueller

ABC’s Brian Ross: Flynn Prepared To Testify Against Trump, Trump Family, White House Staff 
JUST IN: @BrianRoss on @ABC News Special Report: Michael Flynn promised “full cooperation to the Mueller team” and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Donald Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.”
https://t.co/aiagnvr8eS pic.twitter.com/r8u2LWAd0O
UPDATE: ABC News has deleted the above video of Ross’ report from Friday morning after investigative reporter Brian Ross retracted the explosive claim that Flynn would be willing to testify against Trump.
Ross said on ABC World News Tonight that incoming President Trump, not candidate Trump, instructed Flynn to speak to the Russians, a chasm between the original report that the Republican nominee made the request.
ANOTHER FACT TOO GOOD TO CHECK
He said the President asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that statement, saying, according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots and then after the election, the President-elect asked him — and told him to contact Russia on other issues, including working together to fight ISIS, David.”

Donald Trump ‘the candidate’ did not commit a crime: Gregg Jarrett

Former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn plead guilty Friday to charges of lying to the FBI. Now there are reports Flynn was urged by then-candidate Donald Trump to talk to the Russians in potential violation of the Logan Act, a 1799 law which bars private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
But Fox News anchor and attorney Gregg Jarrett told the FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto this would not violate the Logan Act.
“No, it wouldn’t…Nobody’s ever been prosecuted under it. Why? Because the federal courts, especially a New York U.S. federal court, said in 1964 it’s unconstitutional,” Jarrett said.

What the Flynn Plea Means
ANDREW McCARTHY EXPLAINS IT AS WELL AS ANYBODY
Flynn, an early backer of Donald Trump and a fierce critic of Obama’s national-security policies, was generally despised by Obama administration officials. Hence, there has always been cynical suspicion that the decision to interview him was driven by the expectation that he would provide the FBI with an account inconsistent with the recorded conversation — i.e., that Flynn was being set up for prosecution on a process crime.
While initial reporting is portraying Flynn’s guilty plea as a major breakthrough in Mueller’s investigation of potential Trump-campaign collusion with the Russian regime, I suspect the opposite is true.
In his guilty-plea allocution (the part of a plea proceeding in which the defendant admits what he did that makes him guilty), the accomplice explains the scheme and the actions taken by himself and his co-conspirators to carry it out. This goes a long way toward proving the case against all of the subjects of the investigation.
That is not happening in Flynn’s situation. Instead, like Papadopoulos, he is being permitted to plead guilty to a mere process crime.
Meanwhile, the only major case Mueller has brought, against former Trump-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate, has nothing to do with the 2016 election. It is becoming increasingly palpable that, whatever “collusion” means, there was no actionable, conspiratorial complicity by the Trump campaign in the Kremlin’s machinations.

ROGER STONE: Mueller Used False Intelligence From Joe Biden & Susan Rice To Charge General Flynn
Flynn’s decision to make false statements to the FBI is leaving many wondering, if the phone calls were sanctioned by the Obama administration and cleared of wrongdoing by Comey’s FBI, why didn’t the former military man just tell the truth?
Perhaps we may have the answer.

Dirty Cop Comey Gloats After General Flynn Pleads Guilty
Dirty cop Comey gloated after it was reported that General Michael Flynn will plead guilty to lying to the FBI deep state operatives in the ongoing Trump witch hunt today.
Once again — this verdict has NOTHING TO DO with Trump-Russia collusion.
It’s just a way for the Democrat media and Deep State to erase an election and eliminate Donald Trump.
After the news broke of Flynn, Comey gloated by quoting Bible scripture saying ‘justice will roll down like water..’, a quote from the book of Amos. He attached an Instagram picture of the Great Falls of the Potomac to the tweet.
Comey is quoting Amos 5:24 which is interpreted by many as a threat of chastisement– judgment will roll over the land and bring justice. The righteous will prevail and drive out the wicked.
James Comey has a lot of nerve acting holier than thou after he leaked classified memos of his conversations with President Trump to a friend in order to prompt a Special Counsel.

White House Plays Down Importance Of Flynn Guilty Plea
“The false statements involved mirror the false statements to White House officials which resulted in his resignation in February of this year,” Cobb said in a statement released to reporters. “Nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn.

Trump White House Caught Off Guard by Michael Flynn Plea: ‘Their Own Counsel Didn’t Know’
“No one in the White House was prepared.”
That is how Politico began its article Friday afternoon, reporting that the White House legal team dealing with the Russia investigation, headed by Ty Cobb, was taken completely by surprise when former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI earlier in the day.
As Breitbart News had already more than a week ago, the New York Times reported on Thanksgiving that Flynn’s lawyers had terminated an agreement with President Donald Trump’s legal team to share information about the probe. As the Times noted, that termination would have made sense if Flynn had begun cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. And, indeed, other reports in the days that followed seemed to indicate that was likely.

Rush Limbaugh Explains Why Flynn’s Guilty Plea Shows Mueller Has NOTHING on Trump
“But there is nothing unusual about that. Once again, the lack of understanding by the drive-by media reporters — oh — Flynn’s pulling out of the joint agreement to share information, that means he’s getting ready to flip.”
“No, it meant he was getting ready to make a deal with the prosecutor, as such, it becomes unethical for the two lawyers or teams to communicate with each other when one of the people involved is going to cop a plea,” Limbaugh said.

THE LEFT ARE WETTING THEMSELVES
JENNIFER RUBIN IS WAPO’S “CONSERVATIVE”
FROM WAPO:
Flynn could deliver a knockout blow to Trump
Trump’s defenders will argue that this still does not touch on the underlying issue of collusion with Russia. That’s true but misses the point. If there was collusion, Flynn almost certainly would have known about it. He was both Trump’s closet foreign policy adviser and a pro-Russia operator who traveled to Russia to give a lavishly compensated speech and appeared on RT, Russia’s propaganda network, which he asserted was no different than any American news outlet. (RT has since been required to register as a foreign agent.) Trump can claim all he wants that the Russia investigation is a hoax, but if Flynn provides direct evidence implicating Trump, the president’s days in office are numbered.

MSNBC Contributor On Flynn Charges: ‘Historic Day’, ‘Could Be The Beginning Of The End’
MSNBC contributor and Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks declared that it “could be the beginning of the end” over Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.
“So, yes, this is a historic day and could be the beginning of the end. I think the comparison to John Dean is very apt, because he was the person who had the inside knowledge and who really opened the doors to what was really going on in the White House,” Wine-Banks stated.
“And that could be what is happening here with Flynn,” she added.

FROM LEGAL INSURRECTION:
Mueller’s Quest for The Donald: Making sense of the Michael Flynn plea
Mueller wants The Donald more than anything Mueller ever has wanted before in his prosecutorial and law enforcement career.
A somewhat moribund Russia-collusion conspiracy community sprang back to life instantaneously. The treason-choir found its voice again.
Pundits speculated endlessly about what it all means — in a distinctly binary manner: Trump is a gonner, or it’s a big nothing burger.
The Logan Act, that never-enforced hobgoblin of small minds, was trending.
So what to make of the latest feeding frenzy?
The only thing of which I am certain is that Mueller wants Donald Trump to take a perp walk, or at least be impeached based on the findings of Mueller’s investigation. Mueller wants it more than Mueller has ever wanted anything before in his law enforcement and prosecutorial life. And he will stop at nothing to get The Donald. Sure, he’ll charge or convict Manafort and Flynn, and anyone else he can find, but they are just stepping stones.
