Gowdy Cuts scumbag-Adam Schiff Down To Size 
by Chuck Ross
{ dailycaller.com } ~ California Rep. scumbag-Adam Schiff has “had a terrible last couple of years,”... Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said in a scathing interview about his dummycrats-Democratic counterpart Thursday night. “He wanted to be the attorney general under liar-Hillary Clinton, and nobody in the country worked harder to protect her than scumbag-Adam Schiff. He wanted to run for the Senate in the People’s Republic of California, but he couldn’t win either of those seats. So now, he wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee,” Gowdy told Fox News’ Jason Chaffetz...

Feds ask for more time to reunite 
tricky cases from border separations 
by Stephen Dinan
{ washingtontimes.com } ~ The Trump administration asked a judge Friday to extend the deadline for reunifying families separated at the border... in cases where the government suspects the adults may not really be parents of the children they’re claiming. The request came in court papers filed in advance of an afternoon conference call among the lawyers. “My opinion is that some relaxing of the Court’s deadlines is needed to allow HHS, on a case-by-case basis, to complete processes that HHS determines are necessary to make informed class membership determinations and to protect the welfare of the children presently in ORR custody,” Jonathan White, a senior official at the federal Health and Human Services Department, said in the filing. ORR is the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the division of HHS that, under the law, cares for illegal immigrant children deemed to be unaccompanied, at least until they can be placed with sponsors in the U.S. The judge had set a deadline of next Tuesday for the government to reunite all children under age 5 who were separated from their parents after they crossed the U.S.-Mexico border...  https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jul/6/feds-time-reunite-t...

How Congress Can Reduce liar-nObamacare Premiums
by Doug Badger and Edmund Haislmaier
{ dailysignal.com } ~ In 2019, liar-nObamacare premiums are poised to become even more expensive... New York, Washington state, and Maryland are requesting to raise their rates for the individual market by an average of 24 percent, 19 percent, and 30 percent respectively. Nationwide, the Congressional Budget Office predicts premiums will increase an average of 15 percent for the liar-nObamacare benchmark plan. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Earlier this year, we co-authored a study examining how liar-nObamacare regulations raised premiums. We reviewed dozens of prospective and retrospective actuarial analyses of liar-nObamacare’s premium effects on both the state and national levels. We found that premium increases for liar-nObamacare policies were attributable to a maze of new federal insurance mandates, combined with a flawed subsidy design. That unhappy concoction produced disproportionately older and less healthy insurance pools, requiring insurers to price policies beyond the reach of many families and small businesses...   https://www.dailysignal.com/2018/07/05/how-congress-can-reduce-obam...

Poll Shows Palestinians Want 
Convicted Terrorist to Succeed Abbas
by AARON BANDLER
{ jewishjournal.com } ~ Those hoping that the Palestinians’ eroding support for Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas... could be a stepping stone will be disappointed in a new poll showing that Palestinians support a convicted terrorist to succeed Abbas. A July 4 poll conducted by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research Center (PCPSR) found that a plurality of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip support Marwan Barghouti, who is currently serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison over terrorism charges, at 30 percent. The runner-up is Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh at 23 percent. Sixty-one percent of respondents also believed that Abbas needs to step down from his position as PA president, while 33 percent don’t...

White Millennials Are Leaving the dummycrats-Democratic 
Party as 'Walk Away' Campaign Picks Up Steam 
by TYLER O'NEIL 
{ pjmedia.com } ~ White millennials are equally divided between supporting Republicans and dummycrats-Democrats in this year's critical midterm elections... as a campaign urging people to "Walk Away" from the dummycrats-Democratic Party has picked up steam online. Young people do not like President Donald Trump, but whites between the ages of 18 and 34 said they are equally likely to vote for a Republican as for a dummycrats-Democrat in the elections for Congress this November. A full 39 percent said that "if the election for U.S. Congress were held today," they would vote for the Republican in the district where they live. Another 39 percent said they would vote for the dummycrats-Democrat. This represented a nine-point shift away from dummycrats-Democrats since 2016. That year, only 33 percent of young white voters said they would elect a Republican to Congress, while 47 percent said they would choose a dummycrats-Democrat...  https://pjmedia.com/election/white-millennials-are-leaving-the-demo...

‘Army Discharging Immigrants’ Story May 
Not Be The Outrage It’s Cracked Up To Be
by Virginia Kruta
{ dailycaller.com } ~ On Thursday, The Associated Press published a story with a headline that read, “US Army quietly discharging immigrant recruits.”... That headline was quickly met with outrage — but the story itself isn’t anything new. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called the move “disappointing.” Film producer Adam Best claimed that the recruits were being discharged because they were immigrants. But as retired Army Col. Kurt Schlicter predicted, there was more to the story. NPR’s Tim Mak offered a little more context, pointing out the fact that the real question — whether or not recruits are being discharged because they are immigrants — is never answered in the article...   http://dailycaller.com/2018/07/06/army-discharging-immigrants-outra...

Freedom Is, Once Again, on the March in the United States of America 

by Rebecca Hagelin:  This time around, the procession is led by a brazen, no-nonsense man not unlike the bold leaders who signed the Declaration of Independence 242 years ago.

             Although he has retaken much ground lost to liberal tyranny in recent decades, President Trump cannot restore all of our freedoms alone.
               America’s Founders may as well have signed their own death warrants when they declared independence from the most powerful nation on the face of the earth. The risk was so great that they understood they must stand together in spite of their differences, or else they would hang together. Worse still, their failure to unify would cause the dream of freedom, shared by the people they represented, to be obliterated by a tyrannical government that viewed them as subjects instead of individuals with inherent rights. This understanding compelled these men to mutually pledge to each other “our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor.
               To those early great leaders who risked everything for the sentiments they expressed in the Declaration, freedom of speech and freedom of religion were paramount. So they enshrined them in the very first of the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution.
               The Founders knew that when people do not have the freedom to speak openly, and the freedom to allow our faith to be reflected in our activities, we eventually become enslaved in every other area of our lives too. The radical “progressive” liberals understand this fully too — way more so than the average American who doesn’t care much for politics.
               The liberal activists know that when you have the power to suppress the speech and faith-based actions of those you disagree with, then your power is absolute. That is why modern liberals so viciously attack cake bakers and florists who do not bend to the demands of others. It’s why they insist that pro-life crisis pregnancy services advertise abortion. It’s why they compel workers to pay unions for representation the workers do not want. And it’s why the lovers of tyranny will not sit idly by and watch the president appoint, and the Senate confirm, another strict constructionist as the newest Supreme Court justice.
               In recent decades, this great land of liberty has become less so because judicial activism and runaway government have caused freedom to stumble.
               I wonder: Are the United States senators who lean toward liberty willing to put their differences aside in order to champion freedom’s continued march?
               They proved that they can rise to such an occasion when they pulled together to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the High Court. Conservatives and “establishment” Republicans stopped squabbling long enough to support our very independent-thinking, brash president in a shared commitment to liberty. They understood that Neil Gorsuch would be a stalwart promoter of the one thing that is required for men and women in these United States to live freely: the restoration of fundamental constitutional rights. So they made it happen.
               And Justice Gorsuch has delivered in spades with the several 5-4 decisions handed down in recent days, which reestablish First Amendment rights. When the Court restored the religious and speech rights of the cake baker, the pro-life ministries and the union workers, every American and the Constitution emerged victorious.
               Perhaps it is an act of Divine Providence that, just as we celebrate Independence Day, the Republican Party has the opportunity to add rocket fuel to freedom’s march. If the High Court welcomes another jurist committed to original intent and the liberties guaranteed to all Americans by the Constitution, then freedom will win the day for years to come.
               In the midst of the current upheaval, bickering and nonsense rampant throughout the Republican Party, a rare opportunity to unify and change the course of history has emerged. Senate Republicans must seize this moment, and in so doing, restore liberty for every American. May they resolve to emulate the commitment of those who brought us our first Independence Day.

ALERT ALERT

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors.

NJ.com adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
