Noncitizens Say It’s Easy to Register to Vote in California! 
by Andrew
{ conservativefreepress.com San Francisco is planning to open up their school board elections to illegal immigrants... other cities are working on plans to get noncitizens registered to vote in local elections, and, according to a disturbing new story in the Washington Times, noncitizens “can easily influence a U.S. election by simply registering to vote in California.” The left has been scoffing at the idea that programs such as Voter ID laws and initiatives like Trump’s election fraud task force are meant for anything better than suppressing minority/leftist votes, but stories l} ~ ike these prove that with every passing year, dummycrats-Democrats get closer to their ultimate goal: Opening our elections up to anyone and everyone who will vote their way. High-schoolers? Sure. Incarcerated felons? Absolutely. Illegal immigrants and other noncitizens? You’d better damn well believe it. A Russian national or any other noncitizen can easily influence a U.S. election in California...

Trump inches closer to Mueller interview. 
Here's what he could be asked
by Gabby Morrongiello
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ The possibility of President Trump sitting for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller moved one step closer toward becoming a reality this week... after his lawyer Rudy Giuliani said a decision would be made by Aug. 12 and that the president had been pushing for a sit-down. Giuliani revealed the self-imposed deadline for a decision as soon as Trump’s legal team reportedly received word from Mueller that he would be open to reducing the number of questions related to obstruction of justice charges, in addition to allowing the president to respond to some queries in written form. Attorneys for the president have long criticized the scope of Mueller’s investigation, arguing that Trump should not be asked questions about his financial history or anything unrelated to Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign. “We’re in the process of responding to their proposal,” Giuliani told reporters this week, noting that negotiations over a presidential interview remain ongoing...

The Afghanistan Exit May Be Happening
by Todd Johnson:  With his announcement last August that the United States would bolster its troop commitment in Afghanistan and not commit to a withdrawal timeline, President Donald Trump hoped that significant progress would be made against Taliban forces in 2017-18. Unfortunately, that has not been the case and it looks as if his patience with the whole endeavor is beginning to wane.

             Last Friday’s report about Trump administration officials now advocating for Afghan forces to leave the sparsely populated areas of the country to consolidate gains, coupled with top U.S. diplomats holding face-to-face talks with Taliban representatives in Qatar a week ago without Afghan government officials present, are strong indicators that the longest war in the history of the republic may be coming to a close.
               While military commanders say in public there is reason for “cautious optimism,” the facts on the ground belie their feelings. By most objective measures the change in strategy hasn’t worked.
               According to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) quarterly document released a couple of days ago, the Afghan National Defense Security Forces (ANDSF) have once again failed to improve control over sovereign districts, population, and territory. Instead, district and territorial control became slightly more contested between the government and insurgency forces. However, more distressing than the lack of gains on the ground were the findings that the Afghan government may be going back to “business as usual” and “simply checking the box” when it comes to fighting corruption. Is it any wonder that Trump is looking for a workable solution to extract American troops from the region?
               He can take some solace in the fact that he tried to modify the strategy, but the mission is one that simply can’t be achieved with the current level of resources. Over the last year since the change in strategy was announced, the Department of Defense has aggressively taken the fight to insurgent forces. The amount of airstrikes in Afghanistan by U.S. coalition nations has gone up under the Trump administration. As a matter of fact, this year airstrikes are on pace to reach record highs, but sadly, the expenditure of munitions has only created an impasse of epic proportions.
               Steve Brooking, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan’s (UNAMA) director of peace and reconciliation, recently described the situation in the war-torn state as a “mutually hurting stalemate.” Unfortunately, the situation doesn’t appear to have much chance of getting any better, so now is the time for the Trump administration to pursue trilateral peace negotiations and initiate the transition of operations to the Ashraf Ghani led Afghan government.
               While some hawks are critical of such a move, the gridlock on the ground and in the diplomatic channels leaves very few options available. A U.S.-led political settlement is a much more achievable goal than a military victory, and more importantly, it enables the U.S. to exit the country and put critical military resources in other theaters around the world.

ALERT ALERT

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.

Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
