Why Are Elected Politicians Legitimizing Terrorist Front Group?
by Steven Emerson
{ investigativeproject.org } ~ In jumping to appear before cameras and rallies to condemn this week's Supreme Court ruling on President Trump's travel ban... several elected dummycrats-Democrats empowered and legitimized an Islamist group whose leaders continue to engage in radical, incendiary speech. At a rally Tuesday that was well covered by national news outlets, at least seven dummycrats-Democrats from the House and Senate spoke and shared the dais with Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad. CAIR also was among the rally's 50 sponsors. As we have repeatedly reported since 2009, the FBI has a formal policy prohibiting "outreach" – or communication outside of investigations – with CAIR due to its documented roots in a Hamas-support network created by the Muslim Brotherhood...And why isn't the FBI acting on those dummycrats-Dems.

liar-nObama Traded U.S. Passports for Nuclear Deal with Iran 
{ patrioticviralnews.com } ~ liar-nObama’s Iran nuclear deal was a terrible deal from the very beginning... It was also one of the stupidest foreign policy deals that any presidential administration has ever entered into with a hostile nation. liar-nObama gave away the farm, as if America had somehow lost a war with Iran and had to surrender everything on the table. Here’s how the deal went. Iran gets billions of dollars in seized funds back from the United States — money which was seized in response to the 1980 act of terror that Iran committed against us by holding Americans hostages in captivity for more than a year. In addition, liar-nObama and former Secretary of State hanoi-John Kerry sent the mullahs pallets of untraceable cash, because apparently the State Department keeps pallets of cash lying around in case it needs to bribe anyone. Plus, Iran gets to keep running nuclear plants which would eventually lead to the creation of nuclear weapons. That was Iran’s side of the deal. On the American side of the deal, we got… hmmm… must be here somewhere. What did we get again? Oh, right, liar-nObama negotiated a deal in which Iran got everything it asked for and America got NOTHING in return. Stupidest. Deal. Ever...

Iran Promises to Choke Hormuz Strait if US Blocks Oil Exports 
by Alice Greene 
{ punchingbagpost.com } ~ An Iranian official on Wednesday threatened to block all oil exports from the Strait of Hormuz... if the United States succeeds in its promise to halt crude sales from Tehran. The Strait of Hormuz, which is located at the mouth of the Persian Gulf between Iran to the north and the UAE to the south, is often cited as the most important oil chokepoint in the world. Up to 30% of all seaborne-traded crude oil moves through the Strait of Hormuz each year. “Any hostile attempt by the US will be followed by an exorbitant cost for them,” said Esmail Kowsari, deputy commander of the Sarollah Revolutionary Guards. The US military responded to Iran's threats by confirming that American sailors and their allies are standing by to “ensure freedom of navigation.”...   http://punchingbagpost.com/iran-promises-to-choke-hormuz-strait-if-...

Pruitt Has Been Gone For Less Than 
A Day And His Replacement Is Already Getting Attacked
by Tim Pearce
{ dailycaller.com } ~ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) acting administrator Andrew Wheeler has not finished a day as head of the agency before getting attacked... for his stance on climate change and history as a coal lobbyist. Former EPA head Scott Pruitt resigned Thursday and President Donald Trump installed Wheeler as the EPA’s acting administrator for the interim. Trump announced the news on Twitter. The preliminary attacks have come chiefly from environmental organizations, liberal news outlets and journalists. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) tweeted a blog post written after the Senate confirmed Wheeler in April on why Americans should be “afraid of him.” “Make no mistake: we’ll fight Wheeler’s pollution agenda with the same vigor as we did Pruitt’s,” NRDC tweeted...

Expose the Palestinian ‘Refugee’ Scam 
by Jonathan Schanzer and Richard Goldberg
{ defenddemocracy.org } ~ If President Trump wants to promote peace in the Middle East, his first step should be to declassify a key State Department report... that would end the myth of Palestinian “refugees.” The United Nations Relief and Works Agency is singularly devoted to the Palestinian refugee issue. Unrwa labels more than five million Palestinians “refugees”—an impossible figure. The first Arab-Israeli war, in 1948, yielded roughly 800,000 Palestinian Arab refugees. Perhaps 30,000 remain alive today, but Unrwa has kept the refugee issue alive by labeling their descendants—in some cases great-great-grandchildren—as “refugees,” who insist on the “right of return” to their ancestors’ homes. Israel categorically rejects this demand. Unrwa’s operations run counter to the broader mission of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, which is to resettle those displaced by war. Unrwa’s mission, on the other hand, keeps the conflict’s embers glowing by refusing to resettle Palestinians in neighboring countries or even in the Palestinian territories...

Don't Conform to the Millennial Label 
by Caroline C. Lewis:  Whether it’s avocado toast, selfies or socialism, Millennials always seem to be in the news. But what exactly is a Millennial? While the media tend to portray Millennials as a fixed age group, not all researchers agree on exact parameters. Pew Research, for example, defines Millennials as those born between 1982 and 1996, while researchers William Strauss and Neil Howe define them as those born between 1982 and 2004. Different still, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation defines Millennials as those born between 1980 and 1999. But it’s not just years of birth that distinguish these individuals.

             A generation’s unique coming-of-age experiences certainly shed light on certain trends. For example, members of the “GI” or “Greatest Generation” all grew up during the Great Depression and then fought World War II, which shaped their perspectives and gave them (for the most part) common cause, common patriotism and shared values of duty, honor and country.
               However, tracing generational patterns differs significantly from the current exploitation of the Millennial generation, which ascribes to Millennials specific political values, moral (or lack of moral) priorities and a narcissistic philosophy of life. As if just because you happened to be born in the 1980s and 90s, you must have certain beliefs and values. As if the stars aligned for your birth and, according to your generational horoscope, you must be a socialist. Such assumptions about Millennials deny a person’s individual ability to think for himself or herself.
               Consider the many articles that instruct employers on how to “help” their Millennial employees, whose generation-specific perspectives purportedly clash with their own. Ponder the policy consultants who teach candidates how to “reach the Millennials.” Or branding specialists who design marketing schemes “for Millennials.” No equivalent exists for members of Gen X, Boomers or the Silent Generation. No one says, “I can help you sell a vacuum cleaner to a Gen Xer” or “I can win the Silent Generation voting bloc for you.” Why?
               The answer lies in the numbers. According to Pew Research, in 2019, the number of Millennials will surpass the number of Baby Boomers. This means that they will comprise the largest number of product-purchasing adults. It also means that they will comprise the largest number of voting adults.
               Creating (and marketing) a specific value-system would be a useful tool to control a group of people, would it not? After all, it’s worked for dummycrats-Democrats with minorities and women.
               Having a specific (albeit dictated) value system feeds a person’s natural desire for community and acceptance. So Millennials who do not participate in the “Millennial values” scheme are made to feel different and unaccepted by their age group. The use of social pressure reinforces the value-system, preordained by the media and popular culture.
               Consider a recent internet ad: “Best Places to Live for Millennials.” Implication: If you don’t like living in these types of places, you’re a loser. Marketing this way causes a person to rethink his or her own thoughts and opinions to conform with what “everybody my age” is doing.
               On a lifestyle level, consider a church-attending male who doesn’t sleep with his girlfriend. Rather than being praised by his peers for having standards, he is made to feel odd. Consider the conservative female who has traditional values of family and femininity. She is made to feel old-fashioned, out-of-touch and an traitor to her sex and her generation. Thus, promoting the Millennial label as a value-system creates ideological conformity through social pressure. This is a genius strategy if you want to win elections, raise money or sell products because it controls how members of an entire generation think of themselves and their place in the world.
               Because of this perceived “value system,” Millennials have been transformed into both a grievance group and a voting bloc. Re-enforced by the public narrative, many Millennials believe themselves to be victims of student loan debt, victims of parents who didn’t teach them proper “adulting” or victims of a society that doesn’t understand how to meet their self-esteem needs. Additionally, public opinion expects Millennials, as a voting bloc, to support big government, social programs, massive debt and wealth redistribution.
               However, the expected Millennial value system denies one basic thing: People have the freedom to think for themselves. Pushing a generational ideological agenda strips people of being able to have their own thoughts and opinions. In short, the Millennial value system stands as an oppressive form of thought conformity that leverages social pressure to achieve generational groupthink. As such, the fabricated Millennial value system could actually qualify as a social construct.
               This fabricated social construct seeks to deny independent thinking and to exploit both the buying and voting choices of an entire generation. It’s time for Millennials to think for themselves, to reject labels and to oppose generational groupthink. Rather than be a grievance group defined by socialist leanings, student debt and narcissism, Millennials need to have the courage to think independently, to pursue honest dialogue and to reject the bankrupt ideas the purveyors of identity politics expect them to believe.
               This article does not necessarily reflect the generational groupthink widely considered as “Millennial values.” Rather, it was written by a non-conforming, independent thinker who happens to have been born in the 1980s.

ALERT ALERT

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors.

NJ.com adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
