After House bolts for summer, Senate plows ahead on nominations,
spending bills, and a hearing on Russian bots
by Susan Ferrechio
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ The House is out of session until Sept. 4, but the Senate plans to keep working... beginning next week with a vote on a major appropriations measure, a defense policy bill, and a motion to begin negotiations with the House on a five-year farm policy measure. The Senate will also probe “foreign influence operations” in social media. The subject will be part of a rare open hearing conducted by the Senate Intelligence Committee. The panel has invited social media experts to discuss the issue, which lawmakers are focused on following President Trump’s Helsinki meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his walked-back suggestion that Russia did not try to meddle in the 2016 election. The Senate is planning to dedicate part of the summer work session to confirming President Trump’s judicial and executive nominees, staring with a vote on the nomination of Britt Grant to serve as a judge for the 11th Circuit. Senate lawmakers are preparing to hold a confirmation hearing on Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh will continue making the rounds in the Capitol, where he has already met with dozens of Republicans. He plans to start meeting with at least a few dummycrats-Democrats in the coming weeks and will sit down this week with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va...

Trump's ethanol plans alarm the boating industry
by John Siciliano
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ The boating industry is raising the alarm over President Trump's pledge to allow higher-level ethanol fuels to be sold year-round... which the industry believes could place millions of consumers on the hook for expensive repairs. “President Trump’s pledge to allow the year-round sale of E15 will needlessly put consumers in danger,” Thom Dammrich, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association, said in a statement Friday. Trump told farmers in Iowa on Thursday that the administration is "getting very close" to approving a waiver to allow 15-percent ethanol fuel blends, or E15, to be sold year-round. Currently, the sale of the fuel is restricted during the summer months because of its high volatility. Sales after June 1 require a waiver from the Environmental Protection Agency. The farmers want the waiver approval to increase the market for ethanol, especially as trade tensions with China threaten to block a massive export market for many of their other agricultural products. But if Trump moves forward with the plan to allow year round sales of E15 fuel blends, the risks will be placed on 142 million American boaters, said Dammrich...   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/policy/energy/trumps-ethanol-pla...

Republicans Vote to Gut Enforcement, Increase Foreign Workers
by MARK KRIKORIAN
{ nationalreview.com } ~ The House Appropriations Committee this week approved the Department of Homeland Security funding bill for fiscal year 2019 starting October 1, 2018... after considering a raft of amendments. This is not necessarily the final product; the bill will likely be amended further if and when considered by the full House of Representatives, and again when the House and Senate confer on reconciling their respective versions of the legislation. Nevertheless, at this stage the DHS appropriations bill, passed Wednesday on a party-line vote of 29–22, is a snapshot of priorities of this most important committee. And it contains several harmful provisions that would increase illegal immigration and the importation of foreign workers on “temporary” visas — provisions passed with the support of the Republican chairmen of the full committee and its Homeland Security subcommittee. The following is not necessarily an exhaustive listing of its immigration-related provisions, but it highlights the most important ones. Funding levels. The provision most remarked on is the $5 billion for “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure,” i.e., construction of an estimated 200 miles of border barriers, without the restrictions that are in the current-year funding bill that prevent use of funds for anything like a wall...   https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/07/immigration-dhs-appropriatio...

scumbag-Eric Holder finds himself
at the center of new ethics complaint in Ohio AG race
by Philip Wegmann
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ scumbag-Eric Holder just wanted to help. Instead, the liar-nObama alum finds himself at the center of an ethics complaint against Steve Dettelbach... alleging that the dummycrats-Democratic candidate for Ohio attorney general abused the law to use gambling as a fundraising tool. scumbag-Holder got into trouble when he let the Dettelbach campaign raffle off a meet-and-greet opportunity. A raffle ticket for as little as $5 could win liar-nObama fans an opportunity to meet with the former U.S. attorney general. Either those lawmen didn’t know the law or they didn’t care. As the Cincinnati Inquirer reported, Ohio law prohibits political campaigns from putting on games of chance, a fact the Dettelbach campaign would have known if they had reviewed the law conveniently posted at OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov. Soon the campaign will get better acquainted with the law. Mark Miller, a conservative citizen from Cincinnati, just filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Committee. Miller argues that Dettelbach is guilty of operating a “scheme of chance” against the law. “The raffle is all the more egregious because it appears to have targeted poorer and less sophisticated donors, selling chances for $5.00,” Miller’s lawyers wrote in a statement. “It should be clear to anyone seeking to be Ohio’s top cop that the attorney general’s job is to crack down on these illegal schemes, not operate them.”...

Fox News Correspondent Recovering From Surgery 
by Mike Brest
{ dailycaller.com } ~ Fox News’ chief White House correspondent John Roberts tweeted that he is recovering from surgery on Thursday evening... He recently went after President Trump for his tweet attacking the media.  “The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media,” the president stated on Twitter earlier this month. Roberts responded to the tweet with, “President Trump doubles down on his ‘fake news media – enemy of the people’ mantra for reporting that his meeting with Putin was widely panned by members of his own party. That makes me an enemy of the state.”

Germany's Slap on the Wrist
for Muslim Anti-Semitism

by Daniel Greenfield 

{ sultanknish.blogspot.com } ~ On April 25th, thousands in Berlin rallied for the "Berlin Tragt Kippa" or "Berlin Wears a Kippah" march. The march had been called after an Israeli Arab Christian had worn a Kippah, a Jewish religious head covering, to test the level of anti-Semitism only to be violently attacked by a Syrian Muslim refugee screaming anti-Semitic slurs. The video of the attack went viral and the march went viral too.

People of good will wore kippahs, took selfies and no one was assaulted by a Syrian refugee. 

In June, the perpetrator, Knaan al-Sebai, pled guilty to the attack. He claimed that despite screaming “Jew” in Arabic at his victim, often used as a slur in the Muslim world, he wasn’t anti-Semitic. Instead he blamed hashish and exhaustion. Despite being 19-years-old, Al-Sebai was sentenced to 4 weeks in juvie. 

In Germany, if you’re under 20, you too can be treated as a juvenile after a violent anti-Semitic attack. 

The Syrian-Palestinian migrant "fell out of the nest too early and had not yet learned to properly fly," Judge Günter Räcke tenderly summed up the violent assault by the adult man. 

Judge Räcke diagnosed the violent criminal with a bad case of frustration. Jews were just an outlet for his “bad mood”. The job center had cut off his support. When he attacked the man he thought was a Jew, he “felt that he was in the right. That’s a powerful thing.” Indeed it is. Just ask any Nazi. 

Knaan al-Sebai had assaulted his victim with a bottle and a belt. He would later claim that despite the assaults, "I did not want to beat him, I just wanted to scare him." He also screamed anti-Semitic slurs at the Arab Christian veterinary student. When a local German woman told him that you can’t behave this way in Germany, he had shouted back at her, “I don’t give a damn. I’m Palestinian. " 

Instead of sending him to jail, Judge Räcke sentenced the anti-Semitic thug to take a tour of the House of the Wannsee Conference; the lavish mansion that hosted the Nazi conference plotting the extermination of the Jews. A location frequently visited by Jewish tourists. 

“It’s not an extended civics course,” Judge Räcke said. Just so he’ll understand why everyone is so upset. 

“I made a mistake and I have learned from it,” the Syrian refugee told the court. “I hope not to end up in this situation again.” 

Any Jews or Christians whom he may or may not attack in the future share the same hope. 

Since El-Sebai had been held for two months before trial, he walked away with time served. And now he’s suing for compensation over the extra days that he was held in custody while awaiting trial. 

The Syrian refugee would like 950 Euros or approximately $1,000 from Germany. And he’s also appealing the conviction. 

Since his original viral assault, there have been a number of anti-Semitic attacks in Berlin. 

10 Syrians were arrested in early July for attacking a man wearing a Star of David while screaming anti-Semitic slurs. In June, a Jewish teenager was attacked at a Berlin train station for the music he was listening to. “I don’t want to hear this Jew s*** here! This is our town, our turf. If I see you here again, I’ll slit your throat, you f***ing Jew.” 

When a German friend tried to defend him, he was met with the rejoinder, "You lousy Germans. You don't have a right to say anything.” 

One of the weapons of choice of the Arab Muslim attackers was a broken bottle. 

Also in June, a 14-year-old Jewish girl was murdered by a Muslim refugee in Germany. 

Last year there were 1,453 anti-Semitic attacks in Germany. There are only around 100,000 Jews in Germany. Many of them have only a limited Jewish ancestry, don’t identify as Jewish and wouldn’t be likely to be singled out for anti-Semitic attacks. The official Jewish community in Berlin numbers 10,000. 

It’s when we compare 100,000 Jews to 1,453 anti-Semitic incidents that we can see the problem. 

The United States averages fewer anti-Semitic incidents per year, in a country with between 4 to 6 million Jews, than all of Germany. 

Even in the UK, there were 1,382 incidents in 2017 in a country with 263,346 Jews.

Why is Germany so much worse? The court case of Knaan al-Sebai and its aftermath, the Kippah march and Judge Räcke, along with Merkel’s open borders policy for migrants like Al-Sebai, hold the answer. 

The kippah worn by the Arab Christian veterinary student when he was attacked was put on display in the Jewish Muslim of Berlin. It’ll become part of the museum’s permanent collection. 

And like the kippah march, the resort to virtuous symbolism misses the real point. 

Anti-semitism isn’t an abstraction. It’s not a theory or a symbol. It’s what happens when violent thugs like Knaan al-Sebai are given a pass for attacking Jews. The museum’s new permanent display will open in 2019. But El-Sebai was out in a few months and may yet end up making a thousand bucks out of it.

Last year, a German regional court ruled that an attempted firebombing of a synagogue by three Muslim men wasn’t anti-Semitic, but had been carried out to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict”. 

The anti-Semitic arsonists, two Muhammads and an Ismail, blamed alcohol and marijuana, and received suspended sentences. 

The Knaan al-Sebai case wasn’t atypical, it’s typical of what happens when the occasional anti-Semitic Muslim attacker is actually put on trial in Germany. His lawyer invariably blames drugs and alcohol. A sympathetic judge finds every possible excuse for the attack and lets him off with a slap on the wrist. 

But not before the judge condescendingly urges the thug to understand the morally superior position of Germany on anti-Semitism, while at the same time excusing him for not yet adapting to German mores. 

Judge Räcke sending Knaan al-Sebai to learn about anti-Semitism at the House of the Wannsee Conference is typical of the preening moral superiority and the anti-Semitism of the authorities who want to be seen as condemning anti-Semitism even while they actually collude with anti-Semites. 

That doesn’t only happen in Germany. But it has become ubiquitous there. 

The Knaan al-Sebai attack has become a symbol of the hollow self-righteous posturing and its ugly aftermath. The German authorities pay lip service to symbolic events like the Kippah March even as the attacker who was behind it was quickly set free and may even yet be rewarded for his crime.

Germany condemns anti-Semitic violence in word and condones it in deed. 

Anti-Semitism is widely condemned and condoned in Europe. It’s hard to find any mainstream European politician who won’t condemn anti-Semitism, at least in the abstract, but finding real enduring consequences for anti-Semitic Muslim attacks short of outright murder is often equally elusive. 

European politicians condone every display of anti-Semitism up to actual physical violence. And European courts condone anti-Semitic violence up to actual murder. And sometimes even then. 

The attack by Knaan al-Sebai has become a symbol of overt anti-Semitism in broad daylight. But it’s also a symbol of covert anti-Semitism. And we cannot understand the one without the other. 

Muslim anti-Semitism is not organically part of Europe. It was covertly brought there. It was covertly cultivated there. And it is being covertly protected, as Knaan al-Sebai, was protected. When Muslim migrants swarmed into Europe, the authorities promised that they would do the jobs that Germans didn’t want to do. Very few of these refugees have taken on gainful employment. But refugees like Knaan al-Sebai are hard at work doing the jobs that Merkel and some other Germans don’t want to do.

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.”

BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
