Gohmert - Mueller is Corrupt, 
Nobody Deserves Firing and Investigating More
{ rickwells.us } ~ Against a backdrop of rumors that President Trump is considering firing not only Rod Rodentstein but also AG Absent Guy Jeff Sessions... due to their horrible mismanagement and duplicitous conduct, accentuated by the recent raid on the offices of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, Rep Louie Gohmert weighed with his Texas wisdom. Gohmert said the raid, “Tells you all you need to know about the kind of person Robert Mueller is. When scum-Eric Holder, in an interview recently, said no, he knows Mueller well and he’s sure he’ll get something on Trump, he does know Mueller. And in fact, though he was appointed by Bush, Mueller not only finished serving his term as FBI Director under liar-nObama and scum-Eric Holder, but they extended him two years.” “I don’t know of anybody else that was as crushed as I was, because I knew how much damage this man did to the FBI. I would submit he did more damage to the FBI than all of the other FBI Directors put together since J. Edgar Hoover. He has been a disaster...  https://rickwells.us/gohmert-mueller-corrupt-trump/
President Tells Mueller Right Where 
To Shove His Interview After Raid
by Andrew West
{ constitution.com } ~ Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office and President Donald Trump’s legal team are now proceeding with strategies that presume a presidential interview... will likely not take place as part of the Russia investigation, after months of talks between the two sides collapsed earlier this week, according to multiple people familiar with the matter. On Monday Trump’s lawyers were discussing a possible interview with Mueller’s team and had begun to hash out the final sticking points, including the timing, scope and length, according to people familiar with the discussions. One person familiar with the strategy said the president’s lawyers had sought over the weekend to expand his legal team to include individuals who would prepare him for an interview. Another person familiar with the matter, however, said preparations had not yet gone that far. But the prospects for a presidential interview drastically dimmed once the FBI raided the home, office and hotel room of Trump’s long-time personal lawyer, Michael Cohen on Monday, these people said. The president criticized the raid as out of bounds in Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump aides...  https://constitution.com/president-tells-mueller-right-where-to-sho...

Unhappy With Quick Vote on Spending Bill, 
Lawmaker Proposes More Time to Read Bills
by Rachel del Guidice 
{ dailysignal.com } ~ One conservative lawmaker, upset by the $1.3 trillion spending bill last month, wants to pass legislation that would give lawmakers more time to read bills before they vote on them... “This isn’t a very big ask,” Rep. Tom Garrett, R-Va., told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. Garrett’s bill would amend House rules, requiring “any bill to be publicly available for a number of minutes that’s double the number of pages,” the website for Virginia radio station WVTF reported. The spending bill, which was signed by President Donald Trump, was 2,232 pages long. The House Freedom Caucus, a group of conservative lawmakers, said the bill was released fewer than 36 hours before lawmakers voted on it...  https://www.dailysignal.com/2018/04/12/unhappy-with-quick-vote-on-s...

TPP a Globalism Gateway - Tobacco Smoke Screen Proves It 
{ rickwells.us } ~ We thought the debate over and the threat to our sovereignty from TPP was over for America when President Trump withdrew us... from the pact shortly after taking office. With him now considering a return to the certain death to America that this crony rigged trade agreement ensures, it’s worthwhile to take a look at a debate that was occurring back in Feb of 2016, when the criminal liar-nObama was in office and liar-Hillary Clinton was running away from her support of the sellout to their corporate masters. The post from RickWells.US provides a glimpse into just how restrictive, unfair and bad for America this deal is. It’s made available again below: A debate between the liar-nObama regime, special interests and congressional Republicans and Democrats over tobacco is providing a glimpse into the enormous mountain of profiteering and problems that are engineered into the Trans-Pacific Partnership, TPP. It is not a free trade agreement that will provide economic security for the American people as the politicians and money changers would have us believe; it is the exact opposite. TPP is a set of rules written by big business and their lobbyists that ensure those who wrote the deal receive a host of major advantages. The biggest losers are the American people and our self-determining system of government...If this is true, why is Trump looking at it again?  https://rickwells.us/tpp-globalism-gateway/

Dershowitz: FBI is Running Roughshod Over the Constitution

{ totalconservative.com } ~ It continually surprises us how easily the left is able to dismiss famed attorney Alan Dershowitz, a lifelong Democrat... who has nonetheless been one of the few partisans able to see right through the left’s attempts to destroy this president. Dershowitz, trust us, has no love for the Republican agenda. And if we were to bet, we would bet that he did not pull the lever for Donald Trump in 2016. But he has been at the forefront when it comes to defending this president – not because he has some loyalty to Trump the individual or to Trump’s agenda aside from his views on Israel, but because, as a lawyer, he knows that much of what Trump has gone through over the last year has been completely off the charts, clinically, historically INSANE. That’s why we’ve seen Dershowitz over the past year taking aim at the ludicrous attempts to block Trump’s travel ban on Middle Easter countries, the unserious objections on the part of Democrats to Trump’s illegal immigration crackdown, and, most importantly, the off-script, off-kilter, unconstitutional investigation into Trump’s campaign association with Russia. For being one of the few liberals willing to put aside his political beliefs and simply talk turkey, Dershowitz has been shunned by the #Resistance media, treated like a pariah by Democrat pundits, and called everything from a shill to a conservative whacko. This, for telling the truth. That’s how far away from the normal political spectrum the left has taken us...  http://totalconservative.com/dershowitz-fbi-is-running-roughshod-ov...

Ryan's Retirement Rattles Republicans 

by Nate Jackson:  House Speaker Paul Ryan will not seek re-election this November, joining more than 40 other House Republicans who are headed for the exits this fall, if not sooner. For the sitting speaker to retire is a big deal, and it will have implications all over the map.

               There won’t be any shortage of celebration among Democrats or some conservatives over Ryan’s departure. John Hayward, for one, wrote, “Ryan rose to prominence as one of the most articulate advocates of fiscal responsibility in his party. His career ends with Republicans proving beyond all doubt that they were never really serious about it.”
               It’s true that spending is not under control — especially entitlements — and, as Ryan’s former signature issue, that is a significant failure. Ryan clearly failed to change the budgeting system, instead allowing the all-or-nothing omnibus method to dominate. As Dan McLaughlin explains, “This excess of brinksmanship gives a massive structural advantage towards the passage of individual spending items that could not survive on their own, since the choice is literally one between shutting down the government and approving all the spending on everything.” That said, before he was speaker, Ryan was instrumental in holding the line on spending during the Barack liar-nObama years. Unfortunately, it wasn’t nearly enough, and he didn’t stick to his guns when he was in charge.
               And yes, Republicans failed to repeal liar-nObamaCare as they promised for seven long years. But it’s not primarily the fault of conservatives like Ryan that conservative priorities have failed. The liar-nObamaCare failure is the fault of “centrist” Republicans, particularly in the Senate (here’s looking at you, rino-Susan Collins and rino-Lisa Murkowski, et al.), where Ryan had no control. Leadership for Ryan has meant pulling together Republicans that are much further apart in the majority than they were when liar-nObama was the common opponent, making legislative accomplishments few and far between. The same could be said for his counterpart, Mitch McConnell. Both failed to lead on liar-nObamaCare, but the deck was stacked against them.
               President Donald Trump hasn’t made life any easier for Ryan, either. Part of that is welcome — Trump was elected to drain the swamp, and in many ways he’s done so. Clearly that doesn’t make swamp dwellers happy, but there has been some collateral damage too. Republicans are constantly on their heels either defending Trump, bracing for what’s next, or shaking their heads and distancing from him. Trump supporters love it. Ryan and other conservatives trying to accomplish legislative goals, not so much.
               Yet, in spite of all that, Ryan steered through the biggest tax reform in 30 years, and Americans of all stripes are benefiting. For all his faults, that is a huge success. Ryan is also a profoundly decent man, and there are far too few such men in Washington. But perhaps his critics will be happier with the impeachment agenda of Speaker Nancy Pulosi.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
