WikiLeaks legal team ‘considering’ offer for Julian Assange
to testify before Senate Intelligence Committee
by Caitlin Yilek
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ WikiLeaks said Wednesday its legal team is “considering” whether to allow founder Julian Assange to testify before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee... posting a letter it says is from committee leadership. The letter, dated Aug. 1, says the committee is requesting Assange make himself “available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.” The letter is signed by Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va. A spokeswoman for Burr declined to comment about the authenticity of the letter. Senators want to question Assange as part of their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. WikiLeaks played a role in the dissemination of emails stolen from liar-Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and other dummycrats-Democratic officials during the campaign. An indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller alleges Russia stole thousands of emails and passed them along to WikiLeaks, who trickled out their release in the weeks leading up to Election Day...

Mueller’s ‘Star Witness’ Rick Gates Falls Apart During Cross-Examination by Manafort Lawyers – Perjures Himself 
by Cristina Laila
{ thegatewaypundit.com } ~ Paul Manafort’s legal team painted Rick Gates, a former business associate to Manafort as a liar who embezzled millions of dollars... to fund his secret life with his mistress in a blistering cross-examination Tuesday. Rick Gates previously pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with Mueller; he was even referred to as the Special Counsel’s ‘star witness.’ On Tuesday, the Special Counsel’s ‘star witness’ Rick Gates fell apart during the cross-examination and perjured himself which is very damning for the prosecution. Gates appeared nervous on Tuesday, using the phrases “it’s possible” and “I don’t recall” many times as he was grilled by Manafort’s lawyers, reported The Guardian. Manafort’s lawyers continued to erode Gates’ credibility. At one point Manafort’s lawyer Kevin Downing asked Gates, “After all the lies you’ve told and fraud you’ve committed, you expect this jury to believe you?”...

IDF says war in Gaza approaching,
communities near Strip could be evacuated 
by MICHAEL BACHNER and JUDAH ARI GROSS
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ A senior army official warned Thursday morning that Israel was nearing a full-blown military confrontation in the Gaza Strip... after hundreds of rockets were launched overnight by Palestinian terror groups, adding that the government could begin evacuating communities near the coastal enclave in preparation. “We are rapidly nearing a confrontation,” the IDF senior officer said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Hamas is making serious mistakes, and we may have to make it clear after four years that this path doesn’t yield any results for it and isn’t worth it.” Authorities said over 150 rockets and mortar shells were launched at Israeli communities since Wednesday evening. The barrages by the Hamas terror group continued throughout the night and into Thursday. According to IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, at least seven people in total were injured in southern Israel by the Gaza rocket attacks, including a woman who was seriously injured when a projectile struck her home in the Eshkol region of southern Israel...   https://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-says-war-in-gaza-approaching-comm...

dummycrats-Democrats ‘Flabbergasted’ by Lack of Latino Support
by Jack Davis
{ westernjournal.com } ~ Liberal pollsters are saying they are confounded by the fact that large numbers of Latinos are supporting President Donald Trump... instead of anti-Trump dummycrats-Democrats. “My instant analysis is it’s because of the economy,” Fernand Amandi, principal at the dummycrats- Democrat polling firm Bendixen & Amandi International, told CNN. “These are people who are not necessarily paying attention to every inning of political baseball,” he said. “They are working. They are maybe getting a little bit more money.” And that translates into support. The most recent NBC/Wall Street Journal national poll found Trump’s approval rating at 39 percent among Latinos. That’s well about the 28 percent of the Latino vote he received in the 2016 election. Amandi said Latinos should be supporting dummycrats-Democrats due to Trump’s position on issues such as illegal immigration. “I still think it’s a little too soon to push the panic button, but having said that, we are not seeing the types of numbers with Hispanic voters that we should be seeing with the most hostile person to ever hold public office against Hispanics as the president,” he said. “And that in and of itself is a concern...

The Pitiful Roots of Anti-Americanism
by Robert Curry

{ americanthinker.com } ~ The anti-Semite is a crank and a bore. However, the anti-Semite has an important psychological and even spiritual advantage over certain other kinds of cranks... he knows that to other people, he is a crackpot. This leaves the door slightly ajar for him to discover that he is one. Anti-Americanism is anti-Semitism's first cousin, but with an important difference. A person afflicted with this terrible condition is also a crank and a bore, but because anti-Americanism is so widespread both in America and abroad, it is all too easy for the sufferers never to realize they are cranks. After all, anti-Americanism is the norm among the globalist elites. In his book Anti-Americanism, Jean-François Revel writes that he had "formed his opinion about the United States through the filter of the European press, which means my judgment was unfavorable."  But Revel wants us to understand that he has learned that anti-Americanism is more than simply a widespread climate of opinion. Instead, he labels it a "psychopathology" and an "obsession." For Revel, the source of this malady is obvious. America has supplanted Europe, and the elites of Europe resent it. Europe once dominated the world. It no longer does, and the European elites blame America instead of themselves...

Who Really Stands Up for America?
by Daniel Greenfield 

{ sultanknish.blogspot.com } ~ On October 1962, destroyers from the Second Fleet streamed out to intercept Russian vessels suspected of delivering missiles to Cuba. Under the shadow of DEFCON 2, Vice Admiral Alfred Ward, commander of the Second Fleet, watched over a blockade of Cuba. The Navy men putting Russian ships under their guns knew that they were the tip of the spear in what might at any moment become the next world war.

The Russians had ordered their ships to keep going. It was up to the Second Fleet to hold the line. 

"Admiral, it looks as though this is up to the Navy," President Kennedy told Admiral Anderson. 

“Mr. President,” the admiral replied, “the Navy will not let you down.” 

On September 2011, under the leftist politico whose admirers tried to sell him as another JFK, the flag of the Second Fleet was taken down. The fleet that had taken point against the Russians was no more. 

The justification for the disestablishment of the Second Fleet was the diminished threat from Russia. The Navy was being cut to pieces while liar-nObama focused on boondoggles like the “Green Fleet”. 

“Our Navy is smaller now than any time since 1917,” Mitt Romney had objected next year during a presidential debate. "We also have fewer horses and bayonets," liar-nObama sneered, to the cheers of the media. "The question is not a game of Battleship where we're counting ships." 

When Romney brought up the Russian threat, liar-nObama sneered some more. "The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years." 

These days, liar-nObama’s party is mired in a haze of Russian paranoia. But it was their leader who dismantled our first lines of defense and Trump who is restoring our military deterrence. 

Seven years after liar-nObama shuttered the Second Fleet, its flag is flying again. The fleet isn’t green any more, it is mean. And it will watch over the East Coast and the Atlantic to checkmate Russian subs. 

The shutdown of the Second Fleet was part of liar-nObama’s failed pivot to Asia which ended with a humiliating apology to China for flying a plane too close to one of the Communist dictatorship’s fake South China Sea islands. Trump has since dispatched B-52s, outraging China, with no apology. 

That was December 2015. 

On January 2016, the complete collapse of naval credibility led Iran to seize two United States Navy boats, steal classified information, hold their crews hostage and humiliate them on television. 

liar-nObama had forced the Navy to grovel to China. Why not Iran? 

Instead of taking decisive action against this second Iran hostage crisis, the appeasement administration instead used it to spin the success of the Iran Deal. The humiliation of the Navy was complete. 

But the humiliation of the United States Navy and the United States of America ended on Jan 20, 2017. 

The restoration of the Second Fleet is an important step in the revival of America’s Navy. But the full scope of the harm   liar-nObama inflicted on our readiness will take generations of hard work to repair. 

The USS Enterprise, the descendant of a fabled history stretching back to the American Revolution, which took part in the Cuban blockade, was scrapped by liar-nObama. The Enterprise was one of six carriers scrapped by liar-nObama who wasn’t interested in counting ships or horses and bayonets. 

Or in fulfilling the congressional mandate to maintain at least eleven aircraft carriers at all times. Scrapping the USS Enterprise took us to ten even though 10 U.S. Code § 5062 specifically states, "The naval combat forces of the Navy shall include not less than 11 operational aircraft carriers." 

liar-nObama broke the law. He undermined our national security. And once again, he got away with it. 

The great dismantling of our military fueled Chinese, Russian and Islamic aggressive expansionism. But now the Second Fleet will be headquartered in Norfolk along with NATO’s Joint Force Command for the Atlantic. While media pundits wailed about Trump’s commitment to NATO, Norfolk sends a clear and direct message to the Russians and to NATO about American capabilities and determination. 

Under liar-nObama, Russian attack subs and spy ships showed up on our coastlines, approaching naval bases, coming close to our waters, occasionally passing undetected, testing our capabilities and our nerve. Whileliar-nObama did nothing about the threat to our naval forces, Trump shut down the Russian consulate in Seattle to stop its spying on Naval Base Kitsap, one of the homes of our underwater nuclear arsenal. 

Our capabilities have room to regrow, but no matter how much the media lies, our nerve is not lacking. 

President Trump nominated Vice Admiral Andrew "Woody" Lewis, a former fighter pilot, who had served on the Enterprise, the Truman, and the Roosevelt, to head the Second Fleet. The Lewis pick demonstrates the administration’s commitment to projecting naval and air power in the Atlantic. 

There are no horses and bayonets here. Just Trump’s vision for restoring carrier power. While liar-nObama scrapped carriers in his own game of Battleship, Trump wants 12 supercarriers and a fleet of 350 ships. 

"American ships will sail the seas, American planes will soar the skies, American workers will build our fleets," President Trump had declared at the dedication of the USS Gerald R. Ford. 

Ford brings the Navy up to 11 carriers. liar-n Obama took the Navy below its mandated minimum strength. Now for the first time since those terrible years of appeasement, American naval power is recovering. 

By the time Trump is ready to leave office, the Navy should be back up to twelve carriers again. A few years later, the People’s Republic of China expects to have four carriers. Its advanced new vessels will likely rely on stolen technology ripped off by Chinese hackers in the weak and feckless liar-nObama years. 

These include the Littoral Combat Ship and Aegis system designs. 

The dummycrats-Democrats and the media howling about the national security threat from Russian hackers remain uninterested in the Chinese hacks that stole some of our most vital and advanced national security secrets. They expect us to believe that hacking John Podesta and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s emails, and posting spam on Facebook, was a bigger threat than China making off with the F-35 plans. 

China’s ambitious new supercarrier designs take advantage of our failures during the liar-nObama era. These carriers show that the People’s Republic is thinking of projecting force beyond its territories and islands. 

And China has worked closely together with Russia. Its first carrier is an unfinished Russian model. Russian and Chinese vessels are also participating in joint naval maneuvers because they know that seapower hasn’t, despite liar-nObama’s assertions, gone the way of the era of horses and bayonets. 

Not a day goes by without dummycrats-Democrat politicians and media ranting that President Trump is failing to protect us from Russian attacks. The return of the Second Fleet is an example of how Trump is doing just that. It doesn’t take the military to protect dummycrat-Democrat email accounts from hackers. The dummycrat-DNC could have spent 20 bucks on physical security keys for its people, instead of on lavish dresses for Debbie. 

A single one of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s dresses would have paid for 200 security keys. 

Or the dummycrat-Democrats could have spent the money to maintain the military and deter foreign enemies instead of believing that empty speechifying and diplomacy could take the place of aircraft carriers. 

While liar-nObama cut the US Navy, the Russians added warships with cruise missiles. They’re adding an amphibious assault ship capable of carrying 13 tanks. Their missile patrol boats are being hailed for their innovative designs. Putin has announced 26 new ships will be added to the Russian Navy this year. 

Where are all the dummycrat-Democrats who shout about how we need to challenge Russia? Nowhere. 

In 2016, a Russian warship made it to within 300 yards of the USS Gravely. The Gravely was protecting the USS Harry S. Truman. The warship pointed at the Truman. As usual, liar-nObama did nothing. 

These days, the Harry S. Truman Carrier Group is already sending a message to Russian subs in the Atlantic. If thedummycrat-Democrats want to see Trump standing up to Russia, they can look to the waves.

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

(TeaParty.org) – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

Judicial Watch 🔎 @JudicialWatch

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
