Don’t Reward Dirty Cop McCabe – Farrell 
Urges Sessions, Wray To Suspend Retirement
{rickwells.us} ~ Opening the discussion with Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch... Gregg Jarrett asks opines that it seems like the FBI, of all agencies, would want to verify the substance of the dossier before using it to initiate an investigation into the President of  the United States. Farrell agrees, saying, “Failure to do so is criminal negligence on the part of those persons who then advanced the  manufactured dossier to use it as leverage for FISA warrants. He takes the conversation back to the topic of the rumored retirement by Andrew McCabe, saying, “McCabe needs a waiver, according to my understanding, to get to the March retirement date. I don’t think he’s actually eligible to retire until a little bit after that.”...  https://rickwells.us/farrell-suspend-dirty-mccabe/

{westernjournalism.com} ~ The most prestigious board member of Laureate Education has announced his departure from the firm... continuing a rapid exodus of top-level executives at the liar-Clinton-connected company.

Abbas orders staff to sever ties 
with US over Trump Jerusalem declaration
by CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS
{jihadwatch.org} ~ The Palestinian Authority’s rift with the U.S. is growing deeper... according to Israeli media outlets. PA President Mahmoud Abbas president has come to see U.S. President Donald Trump as “a lost cause,” according to the Tims of Israel. Abbas is unglued and will not be comforted. Why? because America exercised its right to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in keeping with Jewish history of its land. This naturally does not bode well for Palestinian interests, as their primary goal is to obliterate the Jewish state. The world still has not come to grips with the fact that appeasement of jihadists just does not work. The more they are appeased, the more empowered and emboldened they become. According to a report aired by Channel 2 news, Abbas was “not only closing the door, but throwing away the key” on the chance of any future Palestinian-American relations... https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/12/abbas-orders-staff-to-sever-ties...

RINO-McCain Crony Set To Testify 
On His Involvement With Steele Dossier
{rickwells.us} ~ The noose continues to tighten around the liar-nObama regime... and establishment GOP swamp creatures being implicated in the takeover of the DOJ and FBI and the related attempt to overthrow President Trump. House Intel Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena for a RINO-McCain crony, David J. Kramer, to testify before his committee on January 11th.  Kramer is a former State Department official who revealed last week that he knows the names of the individuals that were the Russian sources for Christopher Steele’s phony Trump dossier. In a December 19th interview with the Intel Committee, Kramer refused to reveal the names of Steele’s sources. It’s unclear if the subpoena will provide sufficient motivation for him to change his tune and divulge the information, but with RINO-McCain now fading quickly into the swamp muck from which he arose, the odds may be improving... https://rickwells.us/mccain-crony-testify-dossier/

The UK's Consequential Embrace of Secularism
by Cal Thomas
{townhall.com} ~ ANGLESEY, Wales -- The UK Daily Mail has again published a story about a subject that has become a recurring theme this time of year. No, not Christmas, but rather drunkenness, though the holiday is used as its primary excuse. Pictures accompanying the story show young people collapsing in gutters and vomiting on the sidewalks. It is not a pretty sight.

More than 100 years after the 1904 Welsh revival and more than 60 years after American evangelist Billy Graham preached at a London Crusade, which lasted 12 weeks, and at its height brought 120,000 people to Wembley Stadium in the rain, registering thousands of converts, the United Kingdom is a spiritual shadow of its former self.

The BBC recently announced its intension to expand religion coverage on the theory that more information about faith might stem growing anti-Semitism and create understanding of various beliefs. Currently only one religion program, "Songs of Praise" is regularly shown on BBC.

The announcement brought a stinging rebuke from London Times columnist David Aaronovitch: "Given that for the first time since the Black Death a majority of Britons are not actually religious, this new emphasis seems perverse."

A considerable amount of mocking follows: "Maybe there'll be a sitcom called 'The End is Nigh,' in which a family of Jehovah's Witnesses moves next door to a family of Seventh Day Adventists and evangelical mayhem ensues. Or the corporation will buy the rights to 'Saudi Arabian Big Brother,' where the all-male housemates compete to see which of them is the most pious. That one really exists, by the way."

Aaronovitch might examine the difference between the cultural influences of past revivals and the British approach to faith today, which has moved from indifference to open hostility in many cases and produced faithless acts, like public drunkenness.

During the Welsh revival and for at least two decades after, drunkenness was cut in half. As the late minister and chronicler of Christian revivals, J. Edwin Orr has written, "The movement went like a tidal wave over Wales, in five months there being a hundred thousand people converted throughout the country."

Here is where secularists must be challenged if they think faith has no role in modern life. Again, Orr paints the picture: "The social impact was astounding. For example, judges were presented with white gloves, not a case to try; no robberies, no burglaries, no rapes, no murders, and no embezzlements, nothing. District councils held emergency meetings to discuss what to do with the police now that they were unemployed. In one place the sergeant of police was sent for and asked, 'What do you do with your time?' He replied, 'Before the revival, we had two main jobs, to prevent crime and to control crowds, as at football games. Since the revival started there is practically no crime. So we just go with the crowds.'

"A councilor asked, 'What does that mean?' The sergeant replied, 'You know where the crowds are. They are packing out the churches.' 'But how does that affect the police?' He was told, 'We have seventeen police in our station, but we have three quartets, and if any church wants a quartet to sing, they simply call the police station'."

It turns out faith -- at least faith that does not embrace violence to achieve its goals -- promotes positive cultural values better than politicians do. As in America, politicians here are being outed and ousted over claims of sexual harassment and consumption of pornography on their government computers. Perhaps acknowledgement of a Higher Authority in their lives might have prevented them from embracing baser instincts.

If the BBC is rediscovering faith, that might possibly lead to a renewed interest in the subject among the public and who knows, another revival? God knows the UK and America could use one.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
