Former scumbag/liar-nObama White House
Counsel Greg Craig Goes On Trial
Over Ukraine Work
by Ryan Lucas
npr.org } ~ Former scumbag/liar-nObama White House counsel Greg Craig goes on trial Monday... accused of making false statements connected to work he did on behalf of powerful interests in Ukraine.  Craig, a top attorney in Democratic political circles who worked for two Democratic presidents, was  indicted in April on two counts of providing false statements to the Justice Department related to his Ukraine work. The judge presiding over the case threw out one of those counts last week, but Craig will still go to trial on the single remaining count. The case against Craig, who has pleaded not guilty, was born out of former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. During its investigation, Mueller's team uncovered evidence of alleged wrongdoing by Craig, but referred the material to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia for prosecution. It is one of several cases to emerge from the Mueller inquiry that allege violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The law, known as FARA, requires that people doing political or public relations work in the U.S. on behalf of a foreign entity disclose that fact. It is illegal to willfully not register or to provide false or misleading statements to the Justice Department's FARA unit. In Craig's case, prosecutors say he did just that in connection with his work for the Ukrainian government. The indictment alleges that Craig withheld information that he knew he should have provided to the department and provided other information that he knew was incorrect. Craig's lawyers, William W. Taylor III and William J. Murphy of the law firm Zuckerman Spaeder, have denied that Craig broke the law. In a statement at the time of the indictment, they called the government's prosecution "a misguided abuse of prosecutorial discretion."...

William Barr 'appalled' by Jeffrey Epstein death, 
says questions 'must be answered'
By Adam Shaw and Lucia I. Suarez Sang   
{foxnews.com} ~ Attorney General William Barr said Saturday that he is “appalled” by the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein... and said that he has spoken to the Department of Justice’s inspector general about opening a probe into the circumstances surrounding the apparent suicide. “I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death." Epstein, who is accused of sex trafficking minors, was found unresponsive inside his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City around 6:30 a.m. Life-saving measures were initiated immediately by responding staff. He was transported to New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital and was dead on arrival, officials said. The New York City medical examiner's office told Fox News that an autopsy is pending to determine the cause of death. But the death comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was placed on suicide watch after being found injured in his cell. Epstein was in his own cell at the time of his death and was no longer on suicide watch, according to the Associated Press. Earlier, multiple outlets reported that Barr was “livid” at learning of Epstein’s death. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman described Epstein's death as "disturbing." "To those brave young women who have already come forward and to the many others who have yet to do so, let me reiterate that we remain committed to standing for you, and our investigation of the conduct charged in the Indictment – which included a conspiracy count – remains ongoing," he said in a statement. Epstein's death sparked calls for answers from across the political spectrum. Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted that “we need answers, and lots of them.” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said in Iowa that the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death should be “reviewed.”... Why is this so important to find answer when this country has other issues?  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/william-barr-appalled-jeffrey-epst...

House Democrats Refuse To Request IRS Audit 
Of loose lips liar-Biden’s ‘Questionable’ Tax Returns
by Tristan Justice
thefederalist.com } ~ Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee are refusing to request an Internal Revenue Service audit of former vice president loose lips liar-Joe Biden’s tax returns... following the release of the 2020 Democratic front-runner’s financial documents that show loose lips liar-Biden used a tax loophole to avoid paying as much as $500,000 in taxes. For the past two years since leaving the scumbag/liar-nObama administration, loose lips liar-Biden has structured his finances to take advantage of a tax loophole that kept the loose lips liar-Bidens from paying thousands of dollars in additional taxes to fund the administration’s signature health-care law, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as scumbag/liar-nObamacare. Several experts who analyzed loose lips liar-Biden’s released financial documents for the Wall Street Journal have called the arrangement legally questionable. The office of the committee’s chairman, U.S. Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), which has filed a lawsuit against the IRS and the Treasury Department for the release of President Donald Trump’s tax returns, refused several requests from The Federalist to comment or to call for an investigation into loose lips liar-Biden’s returns. Released financial records show that the loose lips liar-Bidens raked in more than $15 million over the last two years from speeches, book sales, and loose lips liar-Joe’s work as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Much of that revenue was funneled through two S corporations set up to circumvent paying taxes that were created to fund Medicare and scumbag/liar-nObamacare, despite the former vice president’s rhetoric on the 2020 campaign trail promising to protect scumbag/liar-nObamacare and unveiling a new plan dubbed the “Affordable Care Act 2.0.” While the loose lips liar-Bidens still paid all of their federal taxes on their salary income, they avoided paying self-employment taxes on millions of dollars recorded as profits from the two S corporations, reducing their tax bill by an estimated $500,000. An analysis from tax experts in the Wall Street Journal called the loose lips liar-Biden’s use the tax shelters a “pretty aggressive” and “cut and dried” abuse of the system considering the low salaries the loose lips liar-Bidens gave themselves. scumbag/liar-nObamacare pushed the self-employment tax rate from 2.9 percent to 3.8 percent for individuals whose incomes are above $200,000 and for families whose incomes rise over $250,000. In routing money made through speeches and book sales through the two S corporations, however, the loose lips liar-Bidens were able to collect a majority of the income as profits that were exempt from the additional scumbag/liar-nObamacare self-employment tax.

U.S. Border Patrol Patrol Agents Came Under 
Heavy Fire From Mexico Side of the Rio Grande
by  WARNER TODD HUSTON
godfatherpolitics.com } ~ A U.S. Border Patrol boat patrolling the Rio Grande River near Fronton, Texas, was fired on with automatic weapons from the Mexican side of the border riddling the boat with up to 50 bullet holes, the government reports... “Agents saw four subjects with automatic weapons who shot over 50 rounds at them. The boat was hit several times but no one on board was injured,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection said on Friday.Two agents working in the Rio Grande Valley, who have to remain anonymous since they were not authorized to speak publicly, told Conservative Review that the Border Patrol was investigating reports of gunfire across from a large island on the river that is claimed by Mexico. The boat hit was reportedly a 21 Foot RSDV Riverine Shallow Draft Vessel. The bullet holes are clearly seen in the photos later released by the Border Patrol. Meanwhile, our government policy prevents our agents from returning fire! Imagine being in a service where you can be shot down by machine guns by Mexican cartel members, and you aren’t even allowed to fight back!  https://godfatherpolitics.com/u-s-border-patrol-patrol-agents-came-...   
Lindsey Graham: “Systematic Corruption” 
Guided FBI’s Pursuit of Trump Campaign
by patriotnewsdaily.com ~ After a series of documents were obtained by Judicial Watch, proving that Justice Department official Bruce Ohr knew all about Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the FBI used his phony dossier to get a warrant against Carter Page... Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program to say that it was only the latest evidence that there was a plot within the scumbag/liar-nObama administration to bring Trump down. “Here’s what’s we’re looking at,” said Graham. “Systematic corruption at the highest level of the Department of Justice and the FBI against President Trump and in favor of scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton.” Hannity asked Graham if he believed that DOJ officials intentionally lied to the FISA court so they could get their surveillance warrant on Page. “The best you could say is that they were incompetent,” Graham replied. “The most likely outcome is that they wanted a result.” The FISA court is somewhat like a grand jury, in that the defendant Page, in this case is not allowed to present evidence in his own defense. Clearly, this would defeat the purpose of the warrant in the first place; if a person knows they are about to be under federal surveillance, they are unlikely to commit any crimes. But with that advantage also comes a responsibility – it’s up to the FBI to present exculpatory evidence on the suspect’s behalf, so that the FISA court can make a fair determination about the need for a warrant. In this particular case, however, it appears the FBI went out of their way to shield evidence that would have made their request for a warrant seem ridiculous. “I think the insurance policy is what we’re seeing here, getting into the Trump campaign,” Graham continued. “The FISA warrant against Carter Page was a fraud, I believe. The counter-intelligence investigation is something we have to look at very closely.” Evidence that the FBI withheld from the FISA Court or minimized: That Steele had a passionate anti-Trump bias. This was known, according to the Judicial Watch documents, as early as September 2016, well before the FBI attempted to secure their first warrant based on Steele’s dossier. That Steele was the sole source for a Yahoo News article around this time. Instead, the FBI used that story as independent corroboration for Steele’s claims, providing the dossier with the only real credibility it could have had considering it has been proven almost wholly fictional at this point. That Steele was paid by Fusion GPS, a firm which was funded by Perkins Coie, a law firm that worked for the Democratic National Committee and the scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton campaign. Graham said that if a Republican administration had acted against a Democratic campaign in this way, it would be all over the news. “You couldn’t turn on your television,” Graham said. But since it’s the other way around, the only attention the media gives it is to call it a “right-wing conspiracy theory.” And that’s if they ever mention it at all.  http://patriotnewsdaily.com/lindsey-graham-systematic-corruption-gu...

Dems and Trump Press for Gun Control
Thomas Gallatin:  Immediately following recent attacks wherein psychopaths in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, murdered over 30 people, Democrat politicians and much of the mainstream media were quick to call for new restrictions on firearms. Even President Donald Trump, facing a massive Leftmedia campaign blaming his rhetoric for supposedly motivating the attackers while he emphatically condemned the “barbaric” attacks, also called for the strengthening of the nation’s background-check laws.

Democrat presidential candidates clearly see these latest atrocities as an opportunity to further constrain the Second Amendment. Sen. Elizabeth dinky-Warren (MA) on Saturday released her latest gun-grabbing scheme, in which she calls for a new “federal assault weapons ban,” banning “high-capacity ammunition magazines,” increased taxes on firearms and ammunition, longer waiting periods for firearm purchases, and holding “the manufacturer of the weapon [used in shootings] strictly liable for compensatory damages to the victim or their family.” Warren’s plan would also require “individuals already in possession of assault weapons to register them under the National Firearms Act.”

Once again, rather than focusing the blame for these crimes on those individuals responsible for committing these mass murders, dinky-Warren seeks to hold the firearms and their manufacturers as criminally liable for their negligent use. Notice that Warren and her leftist ilk don’t hold the same nonsensical standard for other companies. Where are the calls for “common sense” knife-control laws following last week’s mass murder via stabbing of four individuals by a criminal in California? Where are the calls for automaker Dodge to be held “seriously liable” for the Charger that was used by a white supremacist to run over and murder a woman in the Charlottesville protest two years ago today? Obviously, Warren’s intent here is to effectively eviscerate the Second Amendment.

However, what is even more troubling is how effective the Democrats’ leverage of these two atrocities has been, as Trump is looking to find some legislative fix to a problem that finds its root in the hearts and minds of seriously disturbed individuals. Neither of these latest mass murders were Christians. In fact, one was an avowed Satanist, who wrote of his motivation, “I am the servant of the serpent evil incarnate, flesh consumer, light destroyer, fueled by hate, rage my strength, distrust my shield.” In other words, what an individual believes about life and how they see themselves and the world around them is where the problem truly lies.

The availability of firearms is not the root “problem,” yet that appears to be what Congress and Trump are focused on. While the desire to prevent seriously disturbed individuals from obtaining firearms is a sensible concept, the effective implementation of such a proposal is sure to run roughshod over numerous civil liberties such as due process. Secondly, these “red flag” laws, as they are called, have not proven to be effective in reducing gun violence. For example, authorities had been warned repeatedly about the threat posed by the school attacker in Parkland, Florida, but to no avail. In this latest atrocity, it was reported that the El Paso perpetrator’s mother had contacted the police weeks ago after he first purchased his AR-15 to express her concern about him owning it.

Due to the effectiveness of the anti-gun lobby and public pressure, it appears that Trump and other Republicans will seek to produce some form of new gun-control legislation that compromises with some of what Democrats are calling for. In this instance, the pragmatic approach may be to produce legislation that tightens potential gun-purchasing loopholes while preventing any banning of firearms.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden On Violence Against Women:   We Have To Keep ‘Punching At It, And Punching At It, And Punching At It’

 The audience laughed as he said this.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that America needs to be “punching” back to combat violence against women during Wednesday’s Democratic debate.

Biden was asked if he would tackle specific issues regarding the #MeToo movement at the beginning of his presidency, if he were to be elected. The former vice president previously sponsored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which aimed to protect victims of domestic violence.

The presidential candidate responded to the question about assaulting women by using the phrase “punching” repeatedly, apparently not thinking about the implications of using such a word.

“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “So we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it. No, I really mean it.”

A few people laughed in the audience as he said this.

Biden added that it is important to pass the Violence Against Women Act, which has passed in the House and held up in the Senate. The former Vice President also suggested that America has to “fundamentally change the culture” of how women are treated, noting that it is “everyone’s responsibility.”

“It’s a gigantic issue, and we have to make it clear from the top, from the president on down that we will not tolerate it,” Biden said. “We will not tolerate this culture.”
