GOOD NEWS – ILLEGAL ALIEN Picked Up
For Driving Without a License Being DEPORTED 
{ rickwells.us } ~ The bleeding heart open borders scofflaws in Collier County, Florida are up in arms... about what the news anchor erroneously reports as “a Collier County” man facing deportation. He’s not being deported back to his Florida home so clearly that is the typical, incorrect PC garbage. He’s a foreign squatter, a Mexican man, a Salvadoran man, perhaps a Guatemalan man, but not a Collier County man. The report attempts to cast the program by which local law enforcement interact with police in enforcing US immigration laws, the 287G program, as the villain. The wife of Juan Gonzalez Lopez, the soon-to-be-deported illegal squatter picked up for illegally driving without a license, displayed their leftist mentality of how things “should be” in the United States. First priority, as they see it, is for them to be able to choose which laws apply and which don’t; typical Democrats. She cried clown-Schumer tears over a bullhorn, saying, “It’s a shame that this county, that Sheriff Rambosk, that our police officers that are here to defend us are creating this problem.” Of course it is the illegal squatters who are creating the problem as none of this would be happening had they not crossed into our country in violation of our sovereignty. They brought it upon themselves and are burdening the American citizens with the eradication expenses...  https://rickwells.us/illegal-alien-deported-ice/

DOJ official who helped oversee the 
liar-Clinton email investigation resigns abruptly 
by Orhan Cam 
{ conservativeinstitute.org } ~ Now another domino has fallen. David Laufman, head of the counterintelligence division in the Department of Justice... and a key figure in the liar-Hillary email investigation, is leaving his post “for personal reasons.” While Laufman is hardly a household name like Peter Strzok, the counterintelligence chief was heavily involved in the investigation. Not only did Laufman sit in on the interview of liar-Hillary Clinton, he also participated in interviews of liar-Hillary aids Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, and Jake Sullivan—all of whom were eventually offered immunity...  https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/doj-officia...

Justice Dept. and 
FBI Personnel Changes Amid Probes 
by Sharyl Attisson
There’s been a flurry of high level personnel changes within the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI... starting at the beginning of Campaign 2016 and amid multiple probes into liar-Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump-Russia, and intelligence officials’ alleged misbehavior in those investigations. In the year leading up to the election year, then-FBI Director James Comey twice replaced the heads of Counterintelligence at both the Washington D.C. and New York Field Offices, and named a new head of FBI Counterintelligence. Today, there are overlapping investigations underway including: Congressional investigations into alleged Russian interference. Congressional investigations into allegedly improper FBI and DOJ surveillance activities. Congressional investigations into anti-Trump “dossier.” Inspector General investigation into FBI and DOJ anti-Trump leaks. Special Counsel investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion.

liar-nObama fought tooth and nail for this evil regime. liar-nObama’s legacy is his nuclear pact with the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. Trump should have ended it already. He hasn’t. Even if he does, liar-nObama delivered wooden pallets of cash to the mullahs. We aren’t getting that money back. And the Iranians have used it to aid terror groups and plot the destruction of Israel... .

Carter Page: Agent 000 
by Ann Coulter 
{ freedomsback.com } ~ If you've been watching MSNBC and, consequently, have no idea what was in the CONTROVERSIAL! DISPUTED! AMATEURISH! memo released by the House Intelligence Committee (the "Nunes memo"), here is a brief summary:

The liar-Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee paid a Trump-hating British private eye, Christopher Steele, to produce a "dossier" on Trump, relying on Russian sources.

The Department of Justice used the unverified dossier to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against Carter Page, an alleged "foreign policy adviser" to Donald Trump and the last frayed thread of the Russian collusion story. The FISA court was not told who had paid Steele to create the "salacious and unverified" dossier -- in the words of the showboating former FBI Director James Comey -- much less about Steele's personal hatred of Trump.

After 18 months of steely-eyed investigation, the only parts of the dossier that have been "confirmed" are bland factual statements -- Moscow is a city in Russia -- while the untrue parts are anything having to do with Trump or his associates.

As New York Times national security reporter Matthew Rosenberg explained to MSNBC's easily excited Chris Hayes last March:

"Both journalists and others who had copies of it for a long time have not been able to report much of it out. We've heard that, you know, the FBI and the Intelligence Community believe about 30 percent of it may be accurate, but most of that 30 percent, if not all, has been non-Trump stuff."

Four points:

1. The only reason the hapless Carter Page was mentioned by Trump as a "foreign policy adviser" during the campaign was that the media and "foreign policy community" (FPC) threatened to excommunicate any FPC types who went near Trump, the better to laugh at him for having no decent foreign policy advisers. 

Danielle Pletka, with the "conservative" American Enterprise Institute, expressed the FPC's disdain, telling the Times: "It's always surprising when a member of our relatively tightly knit community is willing to sacrifice their reputation to stand with someone like Donald Trump."

This is standard procedure for the left, akin to how they treat black Republicans. Step One: Viciously attack any black person who works for a Republican. Step Two: Mock the GOP for being all white.

Their slanders against Trump worked! No one from the FPC would associate with him, so in a moment of desperation, Trump read five names off a list, including Page's, during an interview with The Washington Post.

The New York Times, the next day:

"Top Experts Confounded by Advisers to Trump ... 

"... the Republican foreign policy establishment looked at them and had a pretty universal reaction: Who? 

"... even Google offered little but outdated biographies of Mr. Trump's new cast of experts ... 

"... None have spoken to their new boss."

This has led to an inane media narrative, with Page being simultaneously portrayed as an all-powerful spy of Kim Philby proportions -- but also a laughable nobody. Or, as a Russian spy described him in an intercepted conversation back in 2013: "An idiot."

2. No one ever checks anything in Hollywood. You could go around claiming to have written "Gone With the Wind," and you'll never be busted.

It's the same in Washington, D.C., only worse. Contrary to the self-admiring cliche about Washington being a city that runs on power, almost no one in D.C. has any real power, so it's a city that runs on suck-uppery and B.S. I personally know of five people who claim to be advising the president, who aren't, and I don't get out much.

That's why Page won't just come out and say: DONALD TRUMP HAS NO EARTHLY IDEA WHO I AM.

3. The use of the federal government's spying powers against an American citizen is yet another problem of unrestricted, unvetted immigration.

The only reason the FOREIGN Intelligence Surveillance Act can be used against American citizens in the first place is that we have all these "American citizens," like Omar Mateen (Pulse nightclub), Syed Farook (San Bernardino), Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Boston Marathon), and Abdulrahman al-Awlaki (killed by liar-nObama drone strike in Yemen).

Maybe like California's new "Real" I.D. cards -- required by the federal government because the state gives driver's licenses to illegals -- we could start distinguishing "American Citizens" from "Real American Citizens."

Because of this confusion, the FISA court that was supposed to be used against terrorists and spies is instead being used against Trump supporters. Here's Malcolm Nance, terrorism analyst, smugly warning Page back in March 2017 on MSNBC:

"I have a message for him, all right? U.S. intelligence is not going to be coming at him like a lawyer, right? We will turn on the entire power of the U.S. collection system. And if he is lying, it is going to become very well-known very quickly. ... If there's a FISA warrant out there ... we have the ability to collect anything on him, including all of his finances and every relationship he has with anybody in this world."

If only the federal government were as gung-ho about spying on terrorists as it is to spy on Page, the FBI might not be a complete laughingstock right now. My late father, an FBI agent, is rolling in his grave.

The FBI will still miss the next 9/11, but at least no one is going to forget to file with the Foreign Agents Registration Act anytime soon.

4. Rep. Trey Gowdy recently defended the Mueller investigation in a clip that has now aired on TV more times than "The Shawshank Redemption." According to Gowdy, the House Intelligence memo has nothing to do with Robert Mueller's investigation because he's just looking into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

With all due respect to Gowdy, that's not what Mueller is investigating.

The letter from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointing Mueller expressly directs him to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump."

Since it has appeared for quite some time now that there is no collusion, the only thing left for Mueller to investigate is Trump's "obstruction of justice," i.e. Trump being pissed off that his time is being wasted.

But without evidence of Trump colluding with the Russians, no independent counsel should have been appointed in the first place. The Department of Justice already has more than 10,000 lawyers. Why pay another dozen to look into foreign interference in our elections unless the president is implicated and can't investigate himself?

The reason Rosenstein appointed Mueller was that he believed the "salacious and unverified" dossier. We know that because Rosenstein personally signed one of the FISA warrant applications based on the dossier -- backed up by a Yahoo article, which was also based on the dossier.

A cabal of anti-Trump fanatics cooked up the Russia collusion story, and don't-rock-the-boat bureaucrats went along with it, so we now have a behemoth investigative monster chasing unicorns.

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
