"As President Donald Trump told reporters that his Tuesday comments about North Korea that set the world on edge might not have been “tough enough,” Defence Secretary James Mattis said Thursday that a military solution to the North Korean crisis is in place. Mattis issued a statement Wednesday warning North Korea that following through on its rhetoric about drawing up an attack plan with Guam as the target “would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.” During a flight to the West Coast Thursday, Mattis told the reporters traveling with him that the military has options in place to deal with North Korea. “Do I have military options? Of course, I do. That’s my responsibility, to have those. And we work very closely with allies to ensure that this is not unilateral either … and of course there’s a military solution,” Mattis said. Mattis did not elaborate on his Wednesday statement, but did respond when asked if he had been taken aback by Trump’s comments Tuesday. “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump said then. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening … and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.” “If anything, maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough,” he said, referring to Tuesday’s comments."

"Countless policies are already in place that limit who can enter the military, and where they can serve. Somebody with terrible vision can’t demand to be a fighter pilot, nor can somebody with, say, bipolar disorder or anorexia be guaranteed an Army Ranger tab.

Transgender issues are a complex mix of physical, psychological, and social challenges.

It’s possible to wish fellow human beings well as they deal with gender dysphoria or a transgender transition, while also acknowledging that the military facing the prospect of war is not the right place for them.

Trump may not have won liberal points for making that tough call, but he was most likely right."

"John Curtis, the Provo mayor, won the GOP primary special election Tuesday night and will face off against Democrat Kathie Allen, and third-party candidate Jim Bennett, son of the late GOP Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah, to determine who will fill the House seat vacated by Rep. Jason Chaffetz.
Three Republican’s squared off in Utah’s 3rd Congressional District in order to replace Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, who abruptly announced his resignation from Congress in June after slowly climbing through the political ranks for his persistent investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Former state lawmaker Chris Herrod received the GOP nomination at GOP’s state party convention, while Provo Mayor John Curtis and Tanner Ainge, the son of the Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, acquired enough signatures to place their names on the ballot.
Curtis, who was endorsed by Utah’s Republican Governor, faced criticism for having once been a Democrat but is now considered the favorite to win the U.S. House seat.
Tanner Ainge, the son of the Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, called Curtis to concede and congratulate him on his victory.
"The numbers were too insurmountable," Ainge’s press aide said.
This is one of seven special elections to take place this year to fill vacant seats in the House and the Senate. Alabama held a special election of its own Tuesday evening as well, to select party nominees to fill the U.S. Senate seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions."

"My name is Lena Epstein and I was Co-Chairman of the Donald Trump campaign when we won Michigan and the presidency!
My experience is in business as an automotive industry businesswoman with 200 employees and hundreds of millions of dollars in sales. I am a political outsider who was inspired by President Trump to run for the United States Senate.
I am proud supporter and defender of our President, and now I am running for United States Senate to defeat Debbie Stabenow and replace her with an “America First” conservative.

I am going to be on FoxNews TODAY - Wednesday August 16th - for an hour between 5pm and 6pm Eastern Time with rocker Ted Nugent. I hope you will tune into Fox News to watch us defend President Trump and his America First policies.

Ted Nugent helped us win Michigan for the President, and hopefully he will campaign across Michigan once again to defeat Debbie Stabenow... tune and watch us on Fox News at 5pm today, and hopefully make a donation to our campaign.

"President Trump started his morning by thanking Bannon for his “service” a day after the US president parted ways with his controversial former chief strategist and key campaign ally.
"A champion of the nationalist-populist agenda that carried Mr Trump to power last November, the 63-year-old left a White House reeling from the fallout over the president’s response to a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton — it was great! Thanks,” Mr Trump tweeted on Saturday.
“Steve Bannon will be a tough and smart new voice at @BreitbartNews ... maybe even better than ever before. Fake News needs the competition!” he wrote.
Mr Bannon himself vowed to keep pushing Mr Trump’s right-wing agenda, as he returned to his former home at the ultraconservative website Breitbart News.
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Mr Bannon said in an interview within hours of leaving the White House.”

Ann Coulter: "the main threat to Americans’ safety today comes not from a country, but from millions of individual savages spread throughout the globe.

Americans aren’t being slaughtered by invading Soviet troops, “Red Dawn”-style, but by Islamic terrorists on tourist visas flying commercial airplanes into our skyscrapers, and by first- and second-generation Muslim immigrants setting off bombs and shooting people at the Boston Marathon, American military bases, community centers and gay nightclubs.

Americans are raped, addicted and murdered not by the Red Army, but by millions of illegal aliens waltzing across our wide-open border.

Our freedoms are being taken away not by a foreign power, but by our own government — in order to protect us from terrorists, international crime rings and Mexican drug cartels operating in our own country.

Defeating a non-country adversary may seem an impossible task, but the savages are perfectly containable. Today’s enemy has no capacity to harm a hair on a single American’s head — as long as we don’t let them come here.

We don’t need a military victory. We need an immigration moratorium.

The Non-Trump Republicans promised us only more immigration and more wars. PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH!

How does a military buildup help Kate Steinle? How about the 3,000 Americans killed on 9/11? Did Obama’s escalation of the war in Afghanistan protect soldiers at Fort Hood or nightclubbers in Orlando? Did it do anything for Grant Ronnebeck, who was fatally shot by an illegal alien robbing a convenience store in Mesa, Arizona, in 2015?

More than 1,600 American troops died in Afghanistan under Obama, and not one American is safer.

All we need to do to win the current war is: Keep our nuclear weapons in working order and stop allowing enemy forces into our country. If we must have troops constantly deployed somewhere, the only place they’d actually be useful is 10 feet into Mexico. (Let a court try to stop that!)"

"U.S. Navy ship collisions in the western Pacific may have killed more American troops so far this year than the war in Afghanistan, illuminating critical readiness challenges facing the military branch.

The collision of the USS John S. McCain with an oil tanker east of Singapore on Monday may have brought to 17 the number of sailors killed by Navy accidents in 2017, compared with 11 service members killed in Afghanistan, an active war zone, NPR reported first, citing the Military Times and icasualties.org.

The Navy announced Thursday it had suspended search-and-rescue operations for 10 missing sailors after recovering "some remains" inside the flooded compartments of the USS McCain. The White House issued an official statement Tuesday expressing condolences for the "United States sailor fatalities." The Navy has officially declared two dead.

Divers Thursday night recovered the remains of 26-year-old electronics technician Dustin Louis Doyon. The Navy recovered the first body, Petty Officer 3rd Class Kenneth Aaron Smith, 22, earlier in the week.

The Navy and Marine Corps said they will continue recovery efforts inside the ship's sealed compartments for the nine who remain missing despite the suspension of rescue efforts.

Tom Callender, senior research fellow for defense programs at the conservative Heritage Foundation, said the prospect of the Navy losing 17 sailors this year is striking, particularly given the casualties were likely preventable.

Callender, a 20-year Navy veteran, said several underlying factors related to readiness challenges contributed to a series of incidents at sea in Asia this year that has likely led to more U.S. military casualties in the peacetime western Pacific than in Afghanistan. He said Navy leaders have warned for years the service is nearing its readiness "breaking point," stemming from a shrunken fleet size, budget cuts, and eight years of continuing resolutions at a time of increased demand.

For the past two decades, the United States has deployed 100 ships continuously at sea despite a smaller fleet. As a result, the Navy has been forced to deploy ships more frequently and for longer periods of time.

In 1998, only 4 percent of ship deployments lasted longer than six months. Today, every single deployment is longer than six months. Callender said this has caused the Navy to defer maintenance for many of its ships, in turn reducing much-needed training hours.

Callender said Naval leadership also needs to reassess its training regimen in a manner that focuses more on the human element. He said younger sailors and officers are now too reliant on technology to navigate the sea.

"We've lost in the Navy the ability to train our sailors and crew to use manual backup methods when technology fails," he said. "It's not just training how to fight—that's a key piece we need to be able to do—but it's making sure we're taking the time to go back to the basics to ensure our sailors and our pilots can operate without relying on the technology, because what happens if the technology fails?"

Citing media reports the USS McCain may have wrecked after a cyber attack on its GPS systems, Callender said such an assault wouldn't have mattered if the Navy had properly trained its crews.

The Navy on Tuesday ordered a rare operational pause for ships around the world to conduct a safety check. Two days later, Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin was removed as commander of the Seventh Fleet in connection to four collisions in the western Pacific this year, of which two were fatal.

In an incident similar to the USS McCain collision, seven U.S. sailors were killed in June after the USS Fitzgerald bashed into a container ship off the cost of Japan. A month earlier, guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain collided with a fishing vessel off the Korean Peninsula, and in January, the USS Antietam ran aground near Yokosuka, Japan, where the U.S. Seventh Fleet is based."

Ann Coulter:

"— Approximately every other year since forever, liberal hooligans have been rampaging through the streets, beating people up, setting off bombs, killing cops, smashing store windows, assassinating politicians and burning down neighborhoods — against capitalism, Vietnam, Nixon, Wall Street, a police shooting, Trump, Starbucks, a sunny day. — Conservatives, mostly families, have generally avoided even the mildest forms of political protest, and, when they finally are driven to petition the government over their grievances, they pick up after themselves — at tea parties, town halls, Trump rallies and so on.

Result: The entire media are constantly on Red Alert for the threat of Right-Wing Violence. The explanation for this apparent madness is that the left — both the scribblers and the shock troops — bear all the characteristics of a mob, as set forth more than a century ago by the father of group-think, French psychologist Gustave Le Bon. No behaviour of the left is mysterious if you’ve read Le Bon — or “Demonic.” In “The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind,” Le Bon observed that the “complete lack of critical spirit” prevents crowds from “perceiving … contradictions.”

No matter the year or the circumstances, the media and their eunuch politicians are quick to blame any surprising violence on the Right-Wing Nazis of their imaginations — from Lee Harvey Oswald (communist) to Jared Lee Loughner and James Holmes (psychopaths) to the two stabbing murders on a Portland train earlier this year committed by a Bernie Sanders supporter, whom the media — to this day — insist, all evidence to the contrary, was a Trump supporter. When, a few months after the first murders by a Sanders supporter, a second Sanders supporter opened fire on a congressional Republican baseball practice, putting GOP Rep. Steve Scalise in critical condition, that political attack was simply discarded. The media put the story of left-wing assailant James Hodgkinson in a lead casket and dropped it to the bottom of the sea. There are the scores of other examples of imaginary right-wing violence invented by the media — then quietly abandoned when the facts come out. After weeks of hair-on-fire headlines, suddenly you just stop reading about the Duke lacrosse “rapists,” homicidal maniac Officer Darren Wilson or legions of Trump-supporters ripping off Muslim women’s hijabs.

But I remember! Here are as many as my word limit allows — maybe more!

During the 2008 campaign, the media were in a perpetual state of fright that racist Republicans would assassinate Barack Obama. Naturally, when a local reporter claimed he’d heard someone in a crowd at a Sarah Palin rally yell, “Kill him!” about Obama, the media didn’t wait for more facts! The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank promptly reported the reed-thin allegation, which was then repeated in hundreds of other news outlets. On CNN, David Gergen said that Palin was “whipping up these crowds,” creating “ugly scenes” with audience members yelling, “Kill him. Kill him” — and also claimed (without evidence) that they were yelling “racial epithets.” A CNN article on the alleged shout-out appeared under the headline: “Rage rising on the McCain campaign trail.” Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden weighed in, somberly calling the alleged incident “dangerous.” MSNBC’S Rachel Maddow railed against the “mere mention of killing someone at a political rally,” saying, “it’s horrific.” MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann took the gold, yammering on and on about the claim in nightly updates, culminating in one of his prissiest ever “Special Comments,” in which he demanded that John McCain suspend his campaign until “it ceases to be a clear and present danger to the peace of this nation.” Needless to say, the Secret Service undertook a complete review. Agents listened to tapes of the event, interviewed attendees and interrogated the boatloads of law enforcement officers spread throughout the crowd. Conclusion: It never happened. As even the nutty left-wing site Salon noted, “If (the Secret Service) says it doesn’t think anyone shouted, ‘kill him,’ it’s a good bet that it didn’t happen.” No apologies, no retractions, no memory.

Remember when polite, hardworking Americans came together to oppose Obamacare at tea party rallies in 2009 and 2010? Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Steny Hoyer called the protesters “un-American.” The Democratic National Committee called them “rabid right-wing extremists.” Sen. Harry Reid called the tea partiers “evil-mongers.” Jimmy Carter pronounced an “overwhelming portion” of them racists. ABC called them a “mob.” CNN called them “rabble-rousing critics.” Democratic congressman Brian Baird of Washington accused tea partiers of using “close to Brown-shirt tactics.” The AFL-CIO called them an “extremist fringe,” using “mob rule.” As Le Bon explained, “one of the surest means of making an idea enter the mind of crowds” is to affirmatively state something, “free of all reasoning and all proof.” Indeed, “the more destitute of every appearance of proof and demonstration” a claim is, “the more weight it carries” with a mob. As usual, once the dust had settled, the only violence at the tea parties and town halls had been committed by liberals.

On Aug. 6, 2009, for example, a black tea partier was beaten up by union thugs shouting the N-word at him at a St. Louis town hall. Six members of the Service Employees International Union were arrested. About a month later, on Sept. 3, 2009, 65-year-old tea partier Bill Rice had his finger bitten off at a health care rally in Thousand Oaks, California, by a lefty Obamacare supporter. To this day, The New York Times has never mentioned either incident, so it can happily return to railing against the non-existent right-wing rage surging in the red states.

In the fall of 2009, the naked body of Census worker Bill Sparkman was found hanging from a tree in southwestern Kentucky, with the word “fed” written across his chest. Liberals wasted no time in concluding that right-wing extremists had murdered Sparkman in a burst of anti-government hate. A Census worker? Who hates Census workers? Unlike an IRS agent, an EPA inspector or even an agriculture inspector, a Census worker can’t arrest you, seize your property or fine you hundreds of thousands of dollars. They just hand out questionnaires. No matter. The left has been waiting for right-wing violence for centuries and, finally, here it was! New York magazine ran an article about the dead Census worker, asking, “Has Nancy Pelosi’s Fear of Political Violence Been Realised?” The Atlantic’s Andrew Sullivan blamed “Southern populist terrorism” for Sparkman’s death, “whipped up by the GOP and its Fox and talk radio cohorts.” But MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow owned the Bill-Sparkman-was-murdered-by-right-wingers story. Night after night, she breathlessly reported this “breaking national news.” Although Rachel’s main move is giggling and eye-rolling, she was all deadly earnestness when it came to the “troubling story” and the “worry that he was killed in fact because he was a federal employee.” In case you missed the point, Maddow reminded viewers there’s “a strong suspicion of government generally among people who live in that area.” A month later, investigators announced that Sparkman had committed suicide in an insurance scam.

A media capable of turning tea partiers, Palin supporters and a random insurance scam into weeks of terror at right-wing violence are not going to let a few waving Nazi flags at a “Unite the Right” rally pass without leaping at the opportunity to outlaw conservatism. Based on the media’s 100-year history of fantasising a burgeoning Nazi Party in America, the rest of us would like to wait for the facts on Charlottesville."

"The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal, Alabama-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that has gained prominence on the left for its "hate group" designations, pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show.

Additionally, the nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to its top directors and key employees while spending little on legal services despite its stated intent of "fighting hate and bigotry" using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is perhaps best known for its "hate map," a collection of organizations the nonprofit deems "domestic hate groups" that lists mainstream conservative organisations and is often referenced in the media. A gunman opened fire at the Washington, D.C., offices of the conservative Family Research Council in 2012 after seeing it listed as an "anti-gay" group on SPLC's website.

The SPLC has turned into a fundraising powerhouse, recording more than $50 million in contributions and $328 million in net assets on its 2015 Form 990, the most recently available tax form from the nonprofit. SPLC's Form 990-T, its business income tax return, from the same year shows that they have "financial interests" in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda. No information is available beyond the acknowledgment of the interests at the bottom of the form.

However, the Washington Free Beacon discovered forms from 2014 that shed light on some of the Southern Poverty Law Center's transfers to foreign entities.

The SPLC's Form 8865, a Return of U.S. Persons With Respect to Certain Foreign Partnerships, from 2014 shows that the nonprofit transferred hundreds of thousands to an account located in the Cayman Islands.

SPLC lists Tiger Global Management LLC, a New York-based private equity financial firm, as an agent on its form. The form shows a foreign partnership between the SPLC and Tiger Global Private Investment Partners IX, L.P., a pooled investment fund in the Cayman Islands. SPLC transferred $960,000 in cash on Nov. 24, 2014 to Tiger Global Private Investment Partners IX, L.P, its records show.

The SPLC's Form 926, a Return by a U.S. Transferor of Property to a Foreign Corporation, from 2014 shows additional cash transactions that the nonprofit had sent to offshore funds.

The SPLC reported a $102,007 cash transfer on Dec. 24, 2014 to BPV-III Cayman X Limited, a foreign entity located in the Cayman Islands. The group then sent $157,574 in cash to BPV-III Cayman XI Limited on Dec. 31, 2014, an entity that lists the same PO Box address in Grand Cayman as the previous transfer.

The nonprofit pushed millions more into offshore funds at the beginning of 2015.

On March 1, 2015, SPLC sent $2,200,000 to an entity incorporated in Canana Bay, Cayman Islands, according to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) records and run by a firm firm based in Greenwich, Ct. Another $2,200,000 cash transfer was made on the same day to another fund whose business is located at the same address as the previous fund in the Cayman Islands, according to SEC records.

No information is contained on its interests in Bermuda on the 2014 forms. SPLC's financial stakes in the British Virgin Islands were not acknowledged until its 2015 tax form.

Lucinda Chappelle, a principal at Jackson Thornton, the public accounting firm in Montgomery, Ala., that prepared the SPLC's tax forms, said she does not discuss client matters and hung up the phone when the Free Beacon contacted her in an attempt to get the most updated forms from the group in relation to its foreign business dealings.

Tax experts expressed confusion when being told of the transfer.

"I've never known a US-based nonprofit dealing in human rights or social services to have any foreign bank accounts," said Amy Sterling Casil, CEO of Pacific Human Capital, a California-based nonprofit consulting firm. "My impression based on prior interactions is that they have a small, modestly paid staff, and were regarded by most in the industry as frugal and reliable. I am stunned to learn of transfers of millions to offshore bank accounts. It is a huge red flag and would have been completely unacceptable to any wealthy, responsible, experienced board member who was committed to a charitable mission who I ever worked with."

"It is unethical for any US-based charity to invest large sums of money overseas," said Casil. "I know of no legitimate reason for any US-based nonprofit to put money in overseas, unregulated bank accounts."

"It seems extremely unusual for a ‘501(c)(3)' concentrating upon reducing poverty in the American South to have multiple bank accounts in tax haven nations," Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street analyst and financial advisor who helped uncover a 2009 financial scandal at General Electric, told the Free Beacon.

The nonprofit also pays lucrative salaries to its top leadership.

Richard Cohen, president and chief executive officer of the SPLC, was given $346,218 in base compensation in 2015, its tax forms show. Cohen received $20,000 more in other reportable compensation and non-taxable benefits. Morris Dees, SPLC's chief trial counsel, received a salary of $329,560 with $42,000 in additional reportable compensation and non-taxable benefits.

The minimum amount paid to an officer, director, trustee, or key employee in 2015 was $140,000 in base salary, not including other compensation. The group spent $20 million on salaries throughout the year.

The SPLC, which claims to boast a staff of 75 lawyers who practice in the area of children's rights, economic justice, immigrant justice, LGBT rights, and criminal justice reform, reported spending only $61,000 on legal services in 2015.

Following recent violence in Charlottesville, Va., the group raised a great deal of money.

Apple CEO Tim Cook told his employees that the company is donating $1 million to the SPLC and would match employee contributions two to one. Cook also placed an SPLC donation button in its iTunes store. The company is additionally providing a $1 million donation to the Anti-Defamation League.

J.P Morgan Chase vowed to add a $500,000 donation for the group's "work in tracking, exposing, and fighting hate groups and other extremist organizations."

The Washington Times reported that CNN ran a wire story following the Charlottesville events originally titled, "Here are all the active hate groups where you live" using SPLC's list of 917 groups.

Brad Dacus, the president of the Pacific Justice Institute, a Sacramento-based group that defends "religious freedom, parental rights, and other civil liberties without charge," was listed on the "hate groups" list.

"Why is the Southern Poverty Law Center doing this? It's simple. They want to vilify and isolate anyone that doesn't agree with their very extremist leftist policy and ideology," Dacus told the Times. "This isn't about defending civil rights; this is about attacking civil rights."

"I am shocked that CNN would publish such a false report on the heels of the Charlottesville tragedy," added Mat Staver, the founder of Liberty Counsel, a Christian nonprofit that provides pro bono assistance and representation, which is also featured on SPLC's list.

"The SPLC is an anti-conservative, anti-Christian hate group that the media have given pretend legitimacy to. One glance at their 990 tax forms is a reminder just what a fund-raising super-power it is," Dan Gainor, vice president of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center, told the Free Beacon. "Its assets are over $328 million in 2015 and went up $13 million in just one year. It doesn't need new liberal money. It could operate for at least six years and never raise a penny. It's like a perpetual motion machine for fundraisers."
The SPLC has also been hit with a number of lawsuits over "hate" defamation claims in recent days.”

A special prosecutor investigation does uncover interesting details how politically powerful people operate
Legal Experts: Pence May Now Be Implicated in Obstruction of Justice

Vice President Mike Pence could be implicated in certain crimes related to the circumstances surrounding the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, according to legal experts focused on the case.

One of those crimes may be obstruction of justice.

Professor Jed Shugerman, who teaches at Fordham Law School, took to Twitter over the weekend after news broke that Pence received a copy of the original draft letter outlining President Donald Trump’s reasons for firing Comey.

Image

According to the New York Times‘ reporting, that letter was drafted by senior adviser Stephen Miller, contained thoughts from the president, ran multiple pages long and read like a “screed.” Its submission was argued against by White House counsel Donald F. McGahn II who criticized its tone.

McGahn won out and the original letter was not given to Comey. A copy was given to deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, who then wrote the letter outlining the official justification for Comey’s firing.

According to Shugerman, Pence’s knowledge of the original letter opens him up to charges on three felonies: (1) conspiracy to commit the obstruction of justice; (2) aiding and abetting the obstruction of justice; (3) and misprision of a felony.

Shugerman based his accusations on two statements Pence made to the public after Comey was fired: (1) that his firing was unrelated to the Russia probe; and (2) that Comey was fired based on a recommendation made by Rosenstein.

Professor Shugerman’s logic appears to be that Pence’s statements are evidence that the vice president knowingly lied about the reasons for Comey’s dismissal and then attempted to conceal the truth from the public. Those lies, he argues, are enough for the two charges related to obstruction of justice.

Misprision of a felony charges would apparently stem from the same set of facts and occurs when someone is aware of a felony being committed and does not alert the proper authorities. Courts require the accused to have taken some form of affirmative steps to conceal the felony in question–which, in this case, would seemingly be the obstruction of justice.

In later comments on MSNBC‘s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, Shugerman added:
“Let’s keep in mind that the Nixon articles of impeachment included a provision blaming Nixon for misleading or false statements to the public–now that’s not a felony, but it was grounds for impeaching President Nixon. It may be grounds for impeachment of Vice President Pence.”
The theory that Pence is now possibly implicated in obstruction of justice has also been seized upon by iconic liberal law professor Laurence Tribe.

Adrian Vance:

"The images coming out of Houston, Texas remind me of the greatest flood of my life in Jeffersonville, Indiana in the spring of 1944.

A group of captured German submariners were held in a small, special POW camp just outside of town. It had been jury-rigged at a US Navy supply depot as we had captured the U505 which had an Enigma code machine in it and our people were anxious the Nazis not know we had it.

By moving these men 800 miles inland we were in violation of the Geneva Accords as they stipulated such men were not to be kept more than 100 kilometers, 62 miles, from where they were captured.

The camp was amazingly casual and while they were behind barbed wire it was obvious to us they could make an escape if they were really serious about it. Groups of us kids would walk out there on Saturdays to look at them and talk with them at the fence. They looked like high school boys to us, save the Commander who had a beard. All were learning English. Of course our parents did not approve of this so our seeing these guys and talking to them was a big hush-hush secret at the Chestnut Street Elementary School. The stuff we could think of to do was amazing. We kept our mothers busy.

When the flood came our levies were thought to be inadequate as the predicted level was about a foot higher so workmen began putting ranks of “sandbags,” which were potato gunny sacks full of dirt. The work was going slowly and we were in fear the town would be flooded and panic set in.

The Commander of the 50 captured submariners offered his crew to do the work and it took about one hour for our city officials to accept. He assured us the men would make no escape attempt as they were glad to be out of the war and several were planning to stay here, if they could, when the fighting was done. Our people did not bother to query Washington because the answer would surely be “No!”

Those guys worked like nothing we had ever seen and it went on for a week or ten days! They were eating and sleeping in nearby homes and our people showed them every courtesy they could, including sharing their SPAM with them. Apologies were in order, but they politely ate the stuff, along with the rest of us. To think Charles Hormel got a special award medal for that stuff from FDR gave me my first big doubt about the veracity and motivation of politicians.

Meanwhile, back at the flood, it was clear these men saved the town as the water level rose to the top of the bags precisely. Not one of the young men attempted to leave and after it was all over several of the men got weekend passes to visit and stay overnight with friends they had made saving our town."

"The left-wing “Black Lives Matter” group seems to think it can bully and intimidate communities — but its members just got a taste of their own medicine.Days ago, the anti-police group staged a protest over a suspect who was shot after an altercation with an officer. That by itself isn’t terribly noteworthy… but where the rally was held should make your blood boil. According to WHYY News, the mob of protesters showed up at an officer’s home in northeast Philadelphia to intimidate his family.

Fed up with group’s thug-like tactics, a local police union held a “Back the Blue” rally of its own, and had some harsh words for BLM. “When you go to work each day, you shouldn’t have to worry that a pack of rabid animals will suddenly show up at your home and openly threaten your family,” declared John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5. “These are not activists, they are racist hate groups determined to instigate violence,” he continued.Black Lives Matter has stepped up their public demonstrations after the name of an officer involved in a June shooting was released.

That police officer is reportedly Ryan Pownall, who stopped a suspect named David Jones for riding an illegal dirt bike in Philadelphia. During the stop, the veteran police officer allegedly discovered that Jones was carrying a handgun illegally. There was a fight, and Officer Pownall ended up using lethal force to stop the armed man from firing or escaping. “A witness in back of Pownall’s police vehicle watched Officer Pownall pull his service weapon and warn Jones not to touch the gun, police said. The two men scuffled before Jones allegedly grabbed his handgun, according to police,” reported WCAU News.A 9mm handgun was reportedly found at the scene, and at least one witness seems to confirm that Jones was armed and refused to stop when ordered by the police.

It’s one thing to make your voice heard, and peacefully demonstrate for a cause. However, a mob showing up at the home of a family crosses the line — and they’re nothing short of menacing hooligans. Black Lives Matter chants vague slogans and calls for “justice,” but they never define what goals they’re actually seeking. “Justice” does not mean that an alleged criminal can break the law, ignore a sworn police officer, and reach for a handgun without consequences. What BLM seems to want is inner-city anarchy.

The far-left group wrings its hands over gun violence, but then refuses to back the police officers trying to stop armed criminals. Black Lives Matter calls police racists thugs, but then escalates the thuggery and bigotry with statements that group all white Americans and police officers as the enemy. Ironically, the thin blue line of officers is often the only thing that keeps urban areas from descending into complete chaos — but that point is entirely lost on the thuggish protesters who know only anger."

"Now, as the President has telegraphed the end of the temporary DACA program illegally installed by former President Obama, a number of radical leftists gathered outside of Trump Tower in New York City to protest. When they refused to follow police orders to disperse, several were arrested, including a great many who were recipients of the DACA program’s lenience themselves.

New York’s finest were tasked with taking these “dreamers” down to the station for booking, and, in the process, showed the world that they are more than ready to stand against the President who is looking to promote law and order in America.

“Hundreds of immigrants and advocates from across the tri-state are demonstrating at Trump Tower and in Washington, D.C., after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday morning that the Trump administration is ending the DACA program.

“As Sessions delivered his remarks on the ‘winding down’ of DACA, dozens of demonstrators marched to Trump Tower in Manhattan, holding signs and chanting, “undocumented — unafraid.” Some sat in the middle of the street in front of Trump Tower, anticipating arrest, and were taken into police custody for blocking traffic. By the afternoon, nearly three dozen people had been arrested in front of Trump Tower in two different rounds of sit-ins; they were being processed at the 7th Precinct stationhouse and were expected to be issued desk tickets, according to NYPD Chief of Patrol Terence Monahan.

“Some of the arrested are DACA recipients; the NYPD says the protesters arrested outside Trump Tower won’t have to be fingerprinted if they provide their information willingly — no fingerprints means no arrest information transmitted to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “
This coy bit of purposeful negligence undermines the immigration enforcement systems that we have in place in our nation, further embolden the already-violent leftists who have openly been calling for a New Civil War with their violent rhetoric and aversion to the First Amendment.

The so-called “resistance” to President Trump’s law and order agenda will soon put a great many Americans in peril, unless the mainstream media suffers a moral epiphany and discontinues their hateful bias against the American conservative."

"Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday assured incoming high schoolers that they need not to worry about President Trump ending the “Dreamers” program, saying Chicago Public Schools are a “Trump-free” sanctuary for young illegal immigrants.

“To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel told a group of freshman on the first day of classes at Solorio Academy High School, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

“Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel said. “And I want you to know this, and I want your families to know this. And rest assured, I want you to come to school … and pursue your dreams.”Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool said the school system is a “sanctuary” for undocumented students.

“We do not allow federal agents on these grounds and in this building,” he said, the Sun-Times reported. “You are safe and secure here to learn, to grow and to pursue your dreams and we hope that you do so.”

The Trump administration announced Tuesday it is ending former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, which allowed illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to be shielded from deportation.”

"Over and over again, from the mouths of politicians in both parties, identity politics purveyors and cheap labor lobbyists, we hear the same refrains about President Obama’s 800,000 amnestied illegal alien youths:

“They don’t deserve to be punished.”

“They deserve protection.”

“They deserve the American dream.”

Deserve, deserve, deserve.

Over and over again, in countless cookie-cutter op-ed pieces published over the past month, so-called DREAMers have vociferously lamented President Donald Trump’s push to eventually undo their unconstitutional five-year reprieves from deportation plus coveted work permits:

“DREAMers like me have flourished under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Trump might take it all away.”

“If Trump ends DACA, DREAMers like me will return to a life of anxiety and doubt.”"“I feel exhausted, I feel frustrated, I feel angry, and in the worst moments, I feel helpless. I feel terrified that at any moment this program is going to be taken away and once again I won’t be able to work — how will I pay my bills? … What is going to happen to me if I get stopped on the street and I no longer have DACA? What’s going to happen to me if I get put into deportation proceedings and I don’t have thousands of dollars to hire an attorney to stay in this country?”
“I will lose my job, my ability to finish college, my driver’s license, and will be subject to deportation. I am not alone either. Almost one million young immigrants like myself will be affected in the same way and possibly even worse.”

I, I, I. Me, me, me. My bills. My ego. My education. My job. My anxiety.

Since when did DACA become the Depression and Anxiety Cure for Amnesty-seekers?

It’s this insatiable appetite for collective entitlement that demonstrates the perils of blanket amnesty. Give a privileged political class an inch and they’ll take, take, take until feckless public servants give away their country.

The proper response to illegal alien activists demanding that Washington act “NOW!” to preserve their comfort, allay their anxieties and extend their unconstitutional protections indefinitely is this:

Why?

Americans in uniform who’ve dedicated their lives to defending our nation are struggling to gain access to quality health care they’ve earned by action, not by accident or circumstance. Imagine their stress.

Five million American young people between 16-34 were unemployed last year and 50 million more are not even in the labor force. Imagine their anxiety.

Hundreds of thousands of law-abiding people from around the world are waiting patiently for their backlogged visa and green card applications to be reviewed. Imagine their frustration.

Why don’t their dreams come first?

Nancy Pelosi called on House Republicans to help her “safeguard our young DREAMers from the senseless cruelty of deportation and shield families from separation and heartbreak.”

Never has this Bay Area elitist called on House Republicans to join her in shielding native-born and law-abiding immigrant families from the senseless and preventable violence committed by criminals in this country illegally who’ve caused immeasurable heartbreak for decades in her overrun California sanctuary.

Jamiel Shaw Sr., whose son was mercilessly shot to death by a sanctuary-protected gang member living in outlaw-coddling Los Angeles illegally, administered a bracing reality check:

“You want to talk about families being separated? Try spending your holidays talking to a grave!”

The left-wing DREAM racket is a self-perpetuating political marketing machine. Its primary contribution to American society? Lashing out at how cruel, racist, ignorant and ungrateful the rest of us are for not bowing down before the hallowed angel children of the Obama administration’s amnesty program. It’s no coincidence that the publicity-hungry leaders of the DREAMer movement are full-time fulminators in government-funded academia, community organizing outfits, immigration law foundations and the grievance-nursing media.

A deserving DREAMer would respect the sovereign right of an independent nation to determine who stays and who goes based on its national interest and constitutional obligations to put its citizenry first.

The deserving DREAMer, in other words, would admit he or she is owed nothing and deserves nothing.

There is no such thing as a “deserving DREAMer.”

"Dr. David Duke talks about Obama’s unconstitutional executive order known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which set as official government policy the contents of the DREAM act, which Congress never passed. The aim of the policy is to provide children brought illegally to the U.S. by illegal alien parents with American Citizenship, thereby turning them into anchor babies. They and their extended families can then continue the replacement of white people in the country their forefathers built.

He and attorney Don Advo discussed the decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to discontinue DACA, which Sessions rightly described as unconstitutional. However, implementation will be delayed by six months to give the Congress a chance to enact legislation setting policy towards these people. They also discussed the recent blitzkrieg against freedom of speech in this country."

"The famously left-wing University of California-Berkley invited what it called “special populations” to attend racially-exclusive orientation sessions, education watchdog Campus Reform reported in a recent story.

Hispanic, black, Native American, and Asian students were invited to the “Golden Bear Orientation” events.

Radio talk show host Charles Butler says while orientation for minorities is needed, it doesn’t need to be done in a segregated manner.

“I do know that ethnic students have issues in terms of lack of access to information,” he says. “But I don’t think that these orientations should be in addition to orientations with the larger student body.”

With an enrollment of approximately 40,000 students, Berkeley is considered an exclusive campus due to its low acceptance rate of freshman.

According to 2016 stats, the majority of Berkeley students are Asian (42 percent) followed by white students (24 percent), Hispanics (13 percent), and blacks (2.5 percent).

The president of the Berkeley College Republicans – by far a minority on the left-wing campus – reminded Campus Reform that the university already publicizes racially-segregated “Theme Programs” in its residence halls, where students can be part of a “smaller and closer-knit residential community of students,” according to the university’s website.

A black Berkeley student told the L.A. Times in February that she needs a “safe space” on campus because white students refused to be her lab partner, and a second black student said the university views her as a “pet” and doesn’t care about her soul.

Butler says the separate orientations are rooted in an attempt to separate certain student groups from the rest of the student body, which is harmful.

“I think it’s very important in those orientations – we talk about this all the time – for our students to make friends, to befriend white students, to not segregate themselves,” he says."

Former CIA Agent Tells the Real Benghazi Story

"What really happened in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in the deaths of US Ambassador Chris Stevens, Communications Officer Sean Smith, government contractors Glen Dougherty and Ty Woods and the wounding of several other undisclosed Americans? Why has it been so difficult for Congress to get to the truth behind what happened? After two years of demanding answers, why have the American people still not been given the full story regarding events surrounding the September 11, 2012 attack that killed Americans – and helped the spread of Islamic Jihad in the region? Was it the poor security which existed at the Benghazi compound coupled with the effects of the “Arab Spring,” as the Obama administration and several major news media outlets have led us to believe?
In reality, the security situation in Benghazi and the Arab Spring were merely offshoots of a much darker scenario which took place in Libya. We have been lied to by our own government – again.
Former UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama stated in public speeches, including before the world community at the United Nations, that the attack on the Benghazi compound was the result of a cheap, anti-Muslim Internet video. The Obama administration expended significant time and taxpayer dollars to advance this deception.
In reality, US intelligence indicated an attack on the compound was possible two weeks before the assault. Within three days of the attack itself, the White House knew the attack resulted from an Al Qaeda connected terrorist group, Ansar al- Sharia, which we now know occupied a safe house just across the street from the compound. A White House memorandum, obtained by Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act request, revealed that the Internet video fabrication was an intentional attempt to conceal what really happened in Benghazi, to ensure Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, manipulating the US government, intelligence agencies and the major news media to ensure victory. But, there was a more nefarious reason than that, which I will describe later.
Hillary Clinton, during sworn testimony before Congress, claimed she was not aware of the serious lack of security surrounding Ambassador Stevens and claimed much of the information surrounding events in Benghazi were “classified.” A forty-six page report by five committees of jurisdiction cited an April 19, 2012 cable bearing Clinton’s signature acknowledging a formal request dated March 28, 2012, from then-US Ambassador to Libya Gene Cretz, requesting additional security in Benghazi.
During closed door testimony to Congress, then CIA Director David Petraeus initially testified the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was an act of terrorism committed by al Qaeda-linked militants. Petraeus was not asked to testify under oath.
Before he could testify further and under oath, the Obama administration revealed Petraeus’ affair with his autobiographer Paula Broadwell. Acting on orders from Attorney General Eric Holder, the FBI collected thousands of Petraeus’ private e-mails to Broadwell, printed 20,000 – 30,000 of them and passed them to Holder, who provided them to the White House. It is a distinct possibility these e-mails were obtained by the FBI from the NSA domestic surveillance program.
In later testimony, the FBI admitted there was no warrant for Petraeus’ private e-mails, no crime had been committed and there was no evidence he passed classified information to Broadwell. Petraeus resigned before engaging in further testimony to Congress. Many in Washington are convinced the incident smacks of blackmail, designed to keep Petraeus quiet and from testifying further. Shockingly, as of this writing, without probable cause, Holder is keeping the FBI investigation of Patraeus – open.
The FBI itself was prevented from investigating the attack scene in Benghazi for three weeks, allowing the scene to be altered and classified documents removed.
Following Patraeus’ abrupt resignation, Acting CIA Director Mike Morell changed the Benghazi public talking points, deleting references to a terrorist attack and involvement of Al Qaeda. Morrell ignored intelligence from the CIA Station Chief on the ground in Benghazi reporting that the attack was clearly the result of terrorism. When pressured for answers as to why he altered the talking points, Morell claimed he was protecting “classified information,” the usual government excuse for covering up unconstitutional activity.
Families of the victims killed in Benghazi were lied to by President Obama and Secretary Clinton, who told them their loved ones were killed as the result of a protest over an Internet video – even during the tearful memorial ceremony mourning their deaths.
CIA employees, before they were allowed to attend the ceremony for those killed in the attacks, were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements gagging them from discussing what happened in Benghazi. Inside the CIA, Director John Brennan ordered all CIA personnel involved in Benghazi to sign new non-disclosure agreements and reports from insiders revealed these employees were being polygraphed, up to once a month, to see if they had talked to anyone, the press, Congress or anyone else about the attacks.
Congressman Frank Wolfe (R-VA), in HR 36, proposed the creation of a select committed to investigate the Benghazi attacks. Unfortunately, Speaker of the House John Boehner blocked Wolf’s call for a select committed for over a year and allegedly pressured Congressman not to support it. Only after a White House memo was revealed proving the White House lied about the Internet video and public outrage skyrocketed did Boehner agree to the select committee. It is being alleged that Boehner is still putting pressure on appointed Select Committee Chairman Representative Trey Gowdy to avoid asking certain questions. Knowing the mechanisms of the White House intelligence apparatus and the use of the agreements binding the few selected Congressman and Senators, referred to as the “Gang of Eight,” who are given access to White House intelligence operations, it is this author’s opinion that Boehner was witting of the Benghazi gun running operation from the beginning, hence his attempts to block an open, objective investigation.
Why the lies and the cover up? What would be so damaging to the Obama administration, and some Republican and Democratic politicians that would compel senior US government officials, including the President of the United States himself, to lie to Congress and the American people? Has there been a Constitutional breach to such a degree that these officials will stop at nothing to conceal it? The answer to that question follows.
Although the attack on the Benghazi compound was a significant, tragic event, it is not the real story behind what the federal government was doing in Libya. The withholding of security from the compound leading up to the attack, the flimsy Department of State Accountability Report, and even the actual attack itself are not the real story – which is far more disturbing.
Although he was by no means a noble leader, Muhammar Gaddafi had established diplomatic ties with the US. He had renounced terrorism, destroyed his weapons of mass destruction and established an embassy in Washington, DC. In return, the US recognized Gaddafi as a new ally, establishing an official embassy in Tripoli. Gaddafi was dutifully providing information to US intelligence agencies regarding the activities of Al Qaeda in Libya. In addition, Gaddafi repeatedly warned the US that Al Qaeda was planning operations to topple the Libyan government. Unfortunately for Gaddafi, none of this mattered to the Obama White House, the Department of State or the CIA. The federal government already had other plans; plans they intended to hide from the American public.
When the 2011 revolt against Gaddafi began in Tripoli, Gaddafi expressed his cooperation with the US government in handling the revolt. When the US refused to assist him, Gaddafi promised to leave his position and go into exile if that is what the Obama administration wanted. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored his attempts to cooperate, turned a deaf ear to his warnings about Al Qaeda and instead supported the Islamic rebels in overthrowing him – which led to his brutal assassination. In essence, Obama and Clinton, with the CIA as their operational hand, assisted in the defacto assassination of an allied foreign leader.
The reason behind this betrayal is a shocking violation of the US Constitution and international law.
Before the toppling of Gaddafi and the attack on the Benghazi compound (which was not a diplomatic post as the administration attempted to portray – but was a “Special Mission Post,” another word for a CIA front site) the Obama administration, including Secretary of State Clinton and then Undersecretary for National Security and Counter Terrorism John Brennan, an alleged Islamic sympathizer and soon to be appointed as Director of the CIA, had initiated a covert plan to equip and arm Islamic rebels amassing to bring down Syrian President Bashar Assad. This was another emerging example of Obama’s increasing proclivity to support Islamic uprisings, throughout the world.
The covert plan included close coordination with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and Qatar – global sponsors of radical Islamic extremism, financiers of terrorist organizations and disseminators of anti-US propaganda in Mosques and Islamic schools in America.
With the aid of the US government, the UAE and Qatar shipped weapons and equipment into Libya. The international cabal established huge weapons storage depots in Libya, training camps for the alleged “moderate” anti-Syria jihadists and established weapons shipping routes to Turkey, bound for the Syrian border.
Once Gaddafi was dead, the CIA moved into Libya and established a covert “Annex” in Benghazi. The CIA began disseminating arms to the Islamic rebels in Libya, including members directly tied to Al Qaeda. In the process, at least 400 surface-to-air missiles disappeared, apparently taken by jihadist groups and now in the hands of Al Qaeda.
The CIA, with the knowledge and cooperation of Ambassador Stevens, began an operation to transfer weapons to an Islamic jihadist group calling itself, the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA). The FSA portrayed itself as “moderate” jihadists, gaining the support of the eager Obama. The CIA was back in business, again conducting a gun running operation, this time to arm Islamic rebels. Apparently, the CIA had not learned from its past mistakes; running guns to Iran during the Iran Contra Scandal and training and supplying the Afghan Mujahadeen, which became Al Qaeda.
The ultimate goal of the Obama administration was, and is, the removal of the Bashar Assad regime and its replacement with a new “moderate” Islamic government – if there is such a thing. Behind this effort was the coordinated agreement with Saudi Arabia and Qatar to take over Syria and its oil capabilities and open the way for US and Saudi/Qatar control over Middle Eastern oil."

What was supposed to have been done in darkness was exposed by the attack on the Benghazi compound which brought the gun running operation into world view. As a result, the Obama administration scrambled to cover up what it was doing, so desperate that senior officials parroted the fabrication that the attack was the result of a protest from a short, poorly done Internet video trailer.

Strong evidence revealed in the book Dark Forces, by Kenneth Timmerman indicates that Iran was directly involved in the Benghazi attack and was instrumental in the assault on the CIA annex.

Other well documented allegations indicate that Russian President Vladimir Putin was aware of the CIA gun running operation from overhead Russian satellite imagery, had ordered Turkey to cease its support of the US operation, and had coordinated with his ally Iran to interrupt the CIA arms transfer. Putin had come out publicly, stating his goal to cease the spread of radical Islam and voiced his disagreement with the US position on supporting Islamic regimes and Obama’s goal of a global “new world order.” In addition, Putin was working with Assad to protect Christian populations in Syria, some of which were eventually massacred by FSA fighters – which was left unreported by the US news media.

Since the exposure of US support of the FSA, including a picture of the military industrial complex darling, John McCain (who allegedly receives millions in campaign donations from defense contractors) posing in a picture with FSA rebel leaders, one of which is alleged to have ties to Al Qaeda, US supplied weapons and equipment have wound up in the hands of ISIS. Former “moderate” FSA fighters have joined with ISIS to fight for a global Islamic Caliphate and the eventual destruction of the state of Israel.

These are your tax dollars at work, used without your knowledge or permission, in the form of billions of dollars seeded into secret budgets.

The US backed overthrow of the Gaddafi government and support of radical Islamic groups has resulted in total chaos in the Libya. Al Qaeda and ISIS have set up active training camps there, warring Islamic factions fight to transition the government into part of the Islamic State and, most alarming, 11 jetliners have been stolen from the Tripoli airport by pilots who knew how to fly them, and are now suspected of being prepared for attacks using the planes as flying bombs.

Obama’s continual support of Islamic fighters, radical Islamic organizations and governments such as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, which was eventually booted out of Egypt by the people, has emboldened the spread of Islamic terrorist groups around the world.

ISIS has become the most serious terrorist threat to America in history, dwarfing Al Qaeda and now including it. Strong indications exist that ISIS cells exist in the US and are planning attacks on US soil. As of this writing, the US and some of its allies (with support from Saudi Arabia and Qatar) are bombing ISIS positions inside Syria. After two years of stalling, Obama is finally forced to face and address ISIS. It is this author’s humble opinion that we should bomb ISIS into the stoneage. So, the bombing campaign has become a necessity to squelch a terrorist organization the White House originally ignored and Obama called a “Junior Varsity” organization, when intelligence indicated otherwise.

It is clear that the rise of ISIS, its arms and equipment supplies, the training and enlistment of some of its soldiers is, at least in part, the fault of Obama US “foreign policy,” and covert operational gun running to Jihadists labeled as “moderate.”

In the context of these events, considering the restrictions placed on the federal government by the US Constitution, and understanding the right of the “We the people” to oversee the actions of our government officials, it appears we have a unique challenge to US national security. That challenge is the President of the United States himself, Barack Hussein Obama, his Chicago-style foreign policy advisors and members of his national security team who are active members of the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood.

If President Obama’s goal, which seems evident by his repeated actions, is to decrease the power and security of the US, reduce the cultural presence of Christianity and increase the spread of Islam around the world, then he has accomplished a great deal of his ideological plan. Either Obama is the most inept, removed president in US history, or he is intentionally engaging in this activity with a predetermined goal. It is abundantly clear that it is the latter."

"Police in Portland, Oregon, made seven arrests Sunday as antifa radicals threw rocks and smoke bombs at officers, creating chaos even after a scheduled Patriot Prayer rally was moved to Washington state in a bid to avoid violence. Portland police said two officers sustained minor injuries."

"One missing hijacker made it easier for United 93 passengers to storm the cockpit. This is the only one of the four hijacked flights that did not strike its intended target, the U.S. Capitol.

Some of that is because it was the only one that had four hijackers instead of the five that took down American 11, American 77 and United 175. “The operative likely intended to round out the team for this flight, Mohamed al Kahtani, had been refused entry by a suspicious immigration inspector at Florida’s Orlando International Airport in August,” the 9/11 report said. As the passengers were just seconds away from getting into the cockpit, the hijacker at the controls crashed the plane in an empty field in Shanksville, Pa., just 20 minutes flying time from Washington.

When the 9/11 report was released in 2004, 28 pages of material remained classified and the subject of intense speculation about their contents. Those pages, which were released in July, showed multiple links to associates of Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar, the former longtime ambassador to the United States. The documents, as USA TODAY reported in July, "show possible conduits of money from the Saudi royal family to Saudis living in the United States and two of the hijackers in San Diego.

The documents also indicate substantial support to California mosques with a high degree of radical Islamist sentiment." The pages were not released, because the details contained in them had not been confirmed or shown to be relevant to the 9/11 attacks. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.” Frank Mitchell, Family Survival Evening Post.

Rand Paul, M.D.
United States Senator :
"I've had prepared a petition to your Senators and Congressman, the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader.
It's crucial you sign it at once. President Donald Trump has pledged to support passage of a National Right to Work act –- and promised to sign it into law if you and I can get it to his desk.
Without a doubt, this is our best opportunity EVER to pass a National Right to Work law to end forced unionism in America.
A National Right to Work law would ultimately end forced unionism nationwide by removing the sections of federal labor laws that allow union bosses to force workers to join a union just to get or keep a job.
So please sign your petition to launch the next, crucial phase for ultimate passage of a National Right to Work law.
Union bosses, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and their allies are going to use every trick in the book to kill a National Right to Work bill -- and they will try to do it as quietly as possible.
The union kingpins (and their water-carriers in Congress) can't afford the consequences of having their coercive privileges publicly debated and voted on in Congress!
They don't want the American people to know that:
Millions of workers are forced to surrender part of every paycheck to keep their jobs.
This cash funds violent "organizing" drives, provides a limousine lifestyle for union bigwigs, and bankrolls radical, Tax-and-Spend politicians like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
Big Labor's power is deadly to millions of small businesses.
Big Labor politicians and Obama-stacked bureaucracies have been strangling small businesses with confiscatory taxes, destructive laws and straitjacket regulations.
Forced Unionism exports millions of good jobs overseas.
Productivity-killing work rules, workplace class warfare, slowdowns, "sick-outs" and strikes all have taken their crippling toll, closing the doors of many businesses -- for good.
Billions of forced-dues dollars bankroll radical Tax-and-Spend politicians like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, resulting in out-of-control spending and skyrocketing taxes.
That's why it's vital you sign your petition to demonstrate to Congress and the national media the strong support for Right to Work.
Of course, Big Labor allies in Congress may choose to obey the union bosses rather than the majority of their constituents.
That's their choice.
But time and again, when politicians defy the public and vote for forced unionism, they've paid the price with the end of their political careers!
So -- by all means -- let's have another vote and see which politicians want to end their careers in the next election.
That's why your signed petition is so important.
It's all part of the National Right to Work Committee's four-part plan to pass a National Right to Work law:
An all-out media and direct-mail blitz to mobilize massive public pressure on Congress will be the key to our success.
Help launch the next, crucial phase for ultimate passage of a National Right to Work law.
The National Right to Work Committee has successfully beat back Big Labor's forced-dues machine for decades.
And now it's critical the Right to Work Committee have your financial support right away to put politicians' feet to the fire to bring the National Right to Work Act up for a vote.
It would be a crime to let politicians who support compulsory unionism off the hook.
Up against the forced-dues-fed, billion-dollar might of Big Labor, all you and I have on our side is truth and public opinion.
Together with the National Right to Work Committee you can make the difference."
