Non-Compliance With Congressional Requests
by sundance

Chairman Nunes sent Main Justice a classified letter asking questions. DOJ responded saying they would not comply with providing information. The Washington Post claimed Nunes was looking for information on an FBI/DOJ ‘source’.However, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said the Nunes inquiry was appropriate. With Ryan’s support, Chairman Nunes threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of congress for non-compliance with valid congressional oversight. DOJ responded saying they’d like a private meeting. Today that meeting took place. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Nunes, and House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and his deputy Ed O’Callahan, as well as representatives from the FBI Christopher Wray and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats...

Russia warned Iran ahead of exchange with Israel 
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ Russia reportedly issued a “warning” to Iran hours before 20 missiles were fired at the Golan Heights from Syria... prompting a massive Israeli counter-strike. The Saudi-owned Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported Friday that Russian deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov had conveyed the unspecified warning to his Iranian counterpart, Abbas Araghchi, in Tehran on Wednesday. Earlier that day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Moscow to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to the report, Netanyahu showed the Russian premier evidence that Iran had established bases in Syria and was preparing to launch missiles at Israel...

Sen. Cotton: Iranian Attack on Israel Would 
Be ‘Miscalculation of Historic Magnitude’
by BEN MARQUIS 
{ westernjournal.com } ~ Following President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement on Tuesday... fears were raised that Iran could launch an attack on Israel via the Islamic Republic’s positions in Syria in an act of retaliation. But such a move would be a major “miscalculation” in the eyes of Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, according to the Washington Examiner. Cotton, an Army combat veteran, has frequently taken a hard stance against the oppressive terrorist-supporting regime in Tehran. Cotton also suggested that a strike on Israel by Iran could very well result in even more destructive retaliatory strikes launched against the regime — not just from Israel, but from the U.S. military as well. “Let me say in unmistakable language: It would be a grave miscalculation of historic magnitude by the ayatollahs if they choose to attack Israel,” Cotton said in an official statement released Tuesday...   https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/cotton-iranian-attack-on-israel/?...

Russia says terror attack foiled

{ timesofisrael.com } ~ Russian intelligence foiled a terror attack on this week’s massive Victory Day memorial march in Moscow... a top Russian diplomat said on Friday. About 1 million people marched through central Moscow on Wednesday in the annual Immortal Regiment rally, carrying pictures of family members killed in World War II. President Vladimir Putin and visiting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joined the march on May 9, the day when Russia marks the end of the war. Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said in an interview with the Tass news agency on Friday that several terror groups in western Siberia had stockpiled weapons for the attack. Twenty people have been detained and 17 homes were searched as part of the investigation, he said...

CIA Disclosures: Iran Cooperating With Al-Qaeda 
by MEIRA SVIRSKY
{ clarionproject.org } ~ The recent release of documents seized during the 2011 raid that killed al-Qaeda head Osama Bin Laden show... the extent to which Iran was cooperating with al-Qaeda. The release of the documents was quashed during the years of the liar-nObama administration. In fact, documents that were released by the liar-nObama administration emphasized the rivalry between Iran and al-Qaeda. The reason was simple: liar-nObama was intent on signing a nuclear deal with Iran – a deal which would open up the global financial coffers to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Far from image the liar-nObama administration was painting of the Iranians as reformed “moderates,” such information would have been devastating...

The Demo Hypocrites Blocking Haspel 

by Political Editors:  Senate Democrats, so blinded by their determination to resist President Donald Trump at every conceivable opportunity, can’t see that they are actually actively working against the very ideal of equality they so regularly espouse. But, honestly, should we expect any different?

             Democrats’ latest obstructionist play is to stand against Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel, a 33-year career veteran of the agency. The Democrats’ objection is that Haspel worked at the agency during those days after the 9/11 terror attacks when the CIA employed “enhanced interrogation” techniques, specifically waterboarding, to extract information out of three prominent al-Qaida terrorist leaders. It was a practice members of both parties supported at the time. The objections to the practice came only years later, after the history and nature of the individuals and threats they presented had long since been forgotten, and when political advantage for Democrats took precedence over national security.
               Meanwhile, The New York Times reports that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, pleaded to be able to speak at Haspel’s Senate hearing about his waterboarding experience. The Times writes, “Mr. Mohammed’s request to provide unspecified information to the panel adds a new twist to that debate. It was described by one of his lawyers, Marine Lt. Col. Derek A. Poteet, who is helping to defend him from death penalty charges before the military commissions system at the Guantanamo Bay naval station.” It should go without saying that this request should be denied.
               Another interesting aspect to the Democrat resistance to Haspel is the fact that she would be the first woman to ever head the CIA. National Review’s Deroy Murdock pointedly calls out the Democrats’ hypocrisy, writing, “One might expect that Senate Democrats, reputedly the vanguard of ‘the Party of Women,’ would help Haspel shatter the glass ceiling at the CIA, an historically male-dominated institution in an historically male-dominated profession. But Democrats are all too eager to lock arms and block this highly qualified and widely praised woman so that they can high-kick President Donald J. Trump in the teeth. So, high-kick the donkeys do. If that means that the first woman nominated to run the CIA never does so, then too bad for Gina.
               As things stand now, her confirmation hangs in the balance. Sen. rino-John McCain, who was actually tortured in Vietnam as opposed to waterboarded (a distinction we believe is critically important), opposes her nomination, though he will be absent for the vote due to treatment for brain cancer. Sen. Rand Paul is also a “no,” while Joe Manchin is the only Democrat senator so far to voice his support. If any more Republicans defect, she may need at least one more Democrat to win confirmation.   ~The Patriot Pos

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
