Sessions Ponders 2nd Special Counsel – Still
Defending Wray, Rosenstein, DOJ Deep State 
{ rickwells.us } ~ Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been facing increasing criticism for his failures to act in a timely manner... to issues of corruption within DOJ and the FBI, including his failure to examine the free pass given to liar-Hillary Clinton by James Comey and his inappropriate relationship and conduct jointly with former AG Loretta Lynch.  Fox News’ Shannon Bream interviewed Sessions while he was in California addressing their rebellious state government through a meeting of law enforcement officers, and asked him about his efforts to clean things up in his own DOJ house. She asks Sessions for his view on a letter sent by Reps Goodlatte and Gowdy asking for the appointment of a second special counsel in order to investigate the FISA abuses and other likely criminal conduct by Department of Justice and FBI officials...  https://rickwells.us/sessions-2nd-special-counsel/

U.S. Short Almost 2,000 Mariners 
to Supply American Forces in War
by John Grady
{ news.usni.org } ~ If push comes to shove, the U.S. doesn’t have enough mariners to move tanks, personnel carriers, ammunition, medicines, food and water into a hot zone in a prolonged crisis... the head of the Maritime Administration said Thursday. The U.S. is short about 1,800 mariners, Retired Rear Adm. Mark Buzby told a joint hearing of the House Armed Services readiness and seapower and projection forces subcommittees. That total doesn’t take into account casualties while operating in a contested environment, he said. In answer to a question from the panel, Air Force Gen. Darren McDew, head of Transportation Command, added, “We’ll have to fight our way in to get to the fight” and “we don’t control everything like we once did,” referring to air and sea, meaning potential loss of ships and crew. Although the number of qualified mariners is at a “historic low,” the decline may not have bottomed out...  https://news.usni.org/2018/03/08/marad-u-s-short-almost-2000-marine...

More Taxpayer Bailouts Will Only Paper 
Over liar-nObamacare’s Many Failures
by Robert Moffit 
{ dailysignal.com } ~ It appears that Congress, backed by powerful special interests in the health care industry, is getting ready to bail out, once again... liar-nObamacare’s failing health insurance program. Last year, President Donald Trump canceled the cost-sharing reduction subsidies for people buying coverage in the liar-nObamacare exchanges. These taxpayer subsidies offset the out-of-pocket costs of these enrollees. Trump’s horrified critics predicted that these spending cuts would mean millions would no longer be able to afford health insurance coverage.  In fact, Trump’s critics were quite wrong...   http://dailysignal.com/2018/03/08/more-taxpayer-bailouts-will-only-...

Trump Accepts Invitation From N Korea’s 
Kim Jong Un For Face to Face Meeting 
{ ickwells.us } ~ President Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in response to an invitation... extended earlier today sent to the South Korean government. South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yong recently led a delegation to Pyongyang which seems to be already bearing fruit. In a Thursday briefing, Chung delivered a personal letter to President Trump from Kim Jong Un, inviting the President to meet. Chung told reporters that North Korea has stated their commitment to denuclearization, stating that Kim had expressed “his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.” He also announced the results, a positive response from the President, stating, “President Trump appreciated the greeting and said he would meet Kim Jong un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization.”...  https://rickwells.us/trump-kim-meet-face/

Pruitt's $1 Billion Rollback at the EPA 

by Business Review Board:  On Feb. 17, 2017, Scott Pruitt — formerly a conservative lawmaker and attorney general in Oklahoma — succeeded in becoming the new face of the EPA. Democrats didn’t take his ascension very well. In fact, Pruitt was forced to reinforce his security detail last autumn because of numerous death threats from ecofascists. The Left’s adversarial attitude toward Pruitt is better understood when you consider just how pivotal of a role he has in the Trump administration.

            The EPA just revealed that Pruitt’s deregulatory endeavor has yielded $1 billion in cost savings after just one year. This was the direct outcome of nearly two dozen deregulations. More importantly, it’s also only a taste of what’s coming down the pipeline. The Clean Power Plan and Clean Water Rule are just two of the 44 additional deregulations that are currently on the agency’s docket. It’s estimated that the elimination of the Clean Power Plan could single-handedly save the economy upwards of $33 billion. With results like these, no wonder leftists loathe Pruitt with such tenacity.
            Of course, this also speaks to the enormous influence of Pruitt’s predecessor, Gina McCarthy. Much of the current administration’s work is geared toward fixing what she broke and the billions of dollars with which she unnecessarily burdened the economy. Pruitt’s progress could be even further along had he not had to first put out a massive inferno of McCarthy’s making. Even still, he is making significant headway, and that will give the economy more and more breathing room. It’s also a reminder that no government agency should ever have so much control over a free-market economy.   ~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.”
