Strzok Broke Classified Procedures 
by Texting His Squeeze From a SCIF 
{ rickwells.us } ~ It seems like everything that was done at the liar-nObama DOJ and FBI involved some sort of double standard... and lack of respect for or adherence to rules, regulations and laws. Now comes information that Peter Strzok likely used a cell phone and messaged while in a SCIF, a serious violation of procedures. Newly released text messages between Strzok and his girlfriend, FBI attorney Lisa Page, contain damning evidence at Strzok’s own hand. He wrote a response to Page asking, “Can you and redacted woman come up and see me when you are done? Is redacted woman with you? Can you please come up here?” Strzok then replied, “Walking to see JB. She is still in 4017,” which was followed five minutes later by a text to Page stating “We’re in Jim’s SCIF.” SCIF stands for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, the areas, aside from liar-Hillary Clinton’s bathroom, where the most sensitive classified material is kept...  https://rickwells.us/strzok-classified-texting-scif/

Justin Trudeau Welcomes Sharia 
to Canada and Is a ‘Complete Idiot’ 
by Trey Sanchez 
{ truthrevolt.org } ~ Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has turned his country into a meme... That’s according to commentator Paul Joseph Watson, whose latest video, "Justin Trudeau is a Complete Idiot," brilliantly excoriates the PM. Dare we say it’s one of Watson’s finest and funniest yet. Trudeau tossed conservatives a softball this week when he corrected someone’s use of “mankind” by telling them it’s more inclusive to use “peoplekind.” While that’s easy to make fun of, it’s nothing compared to the kind of dangerous thinking that’s at his core. The PM has confirmed that his Liberal Party “believes that terrorists should get to keep their Canadian citizenship.” He not only wants ISIS fighters to be reintegrated back into society, and somehow de-radicalized, his party doesn’t even want them prosecuted. Trudeau has even apologized to a Muslim Gitmo detainee for his treatment and settled with him a $10 million lawsuit. But what’s more, Trudeau believes Islam is completely compatible with Western democracy and has said so on many occasions...  https://www.truthrevolt.org/news/justin-trudeau-welcomes-sharia-can...

Opposition: Netanyahu ‘acting 
like a criminal’ in attack on police chief 
by RAOUL WOOTLIFF
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ With the political temperature rising as police reportedly gear up to recommend indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu... opposition leaders on Thursday took the premier to task for lashing out at Israel Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich in a late-night Facebook post. Zionist Union chairman Avi Gabbay said that Netanyahu was “acting like a criminal with his unprecedented attack on the commissioner and the police” after Alsheich gave an interview critical of the prime minister. “Netanyahu is humiliating us, the citizens of Israel,” Gabbay said in a statement. “Instead of requesting that they wrap up the investigation as soon as possible, Netanyahu has chosen to attack the police commissioner, and by doing so, he is trying to dismantle peoples’ trust in the legal system.”...  https://www.timesofisrael.com/opposition-netanyahu-acting-like-a-cr...

Horowitz: How Progressives Use Race 
as a Weapon Against Our Country
by Frontpagemag.com 
{ frontpagemag.com } ~ For many Americans, the election of this nation’s first black President in 2008 signaled hope for a healing of the racial divide... that has dogged the United States throughout its history. But instead of reconciliation, Barack liar-nObama declared that racism is in America’s very DNA. He ushered in a new era of racial anger, distrust, and violence. Now America teeters on the precipice of a chasm between the races that is wider than any seen in the last half century. In his new pamphlet How Progressives Use Race as a Weapon Against Our Country, Freedom Center founder David Horowitz addresses this explosive state of affairs and explains that the collectivist left is at war with America and its achievement of a successful multi-ethnic, multi-racial society. That society was unrivaled in its inclusiveness, tolerance, and freedom for all individuals, regardless of race. Horowitz explains how the left is stoking racial animus and resentment in order to delegitimize American exceptionalism and to divide Americans through the ideological conviction that whites are oppressors and “people of color” are the oppressed. The left’s reprehensible claim that the United States is a white supremacist nation is setting the stage, he writes, for the nation’s suicide...   https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/269141/horowitz-how-progressives-u...

Nunes: The Russians Did Collude 
in 2016…With the Democrats

{ restoreamericanglory.com } ~ In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes said...
 that there was indeed collusion in the 2016 presidential election and it did indeed involve actors from Russia. The only problem with the mainstream narrative, in fact, is that they are looking at the wrong party. Nunes said that Democrats were running scared from his controversial memo because they know a “counterintelligence investigation should have been opened up against the liar-Hillary campaign.” We have a clear link to Russia,” Nunes said. “You have a campaign who hired a law firm, who hired Fusion GPS, who hired a foreign agent, who then got information from the Russians on the other campaign.” Yes! Now we’re getting down to the nitty gritty. For the last few days, all eyes have been on the liar-nObama intelligence community and what they did or did not share with the FISA court to secure a warrant. And it’s appropriate that our attention should have been focused on that, because it’s extremely important that we find out the facts. If the Department of Justice and/or the FBI lied to the court or omitted information that would have changed the outcome, then they illegally spied on an American citizen and that is a big, big problem...

Making America Safe Again: President Reverses Gitmo Closure 

by Caroline C. Lewis:  President Donald Trump signed a little-discussed executive order last week reversing the previous administration’s order to close the detention facility at the U.S. Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay (GTMO). The president is keeping his promise: “When it comes to terrorism, we will do whatever is necessary to protect our nation.”

          Fortunately, Barack liar-nObama never delivered on his 2009 executive order to close the facility at Guantanamo Bay, yet his order still needed to be reversed. The liar-nObama administration worked from a failed ideology of peace through appeasement. In contrast, President Trump understands Ronald Reagan’s concept of “Peace Through Strength.” That is, maintaining peace by keeping our strength, not by enabling the enemy.
          While it may appear humanitarian to “free all prisoners,” this perspective ignores the real threats terrorism poses to our nation’s safety and to the world. It compromises the Rule of Law and ignores the reason why the detainees are imprisoned in the first place: These unlawful enemy combatants either harmed or sought to harm innocent people. To free such fighters who are intent on murdering innocent people, while claiming no responsibility for the resulting deaths, qualifies as the true action of inhumanity.
          Since Sept. 11, 2001, the United States has remained engaged in armed conflict with the Taliban, al-Qaida and associated forces such as the Islamic State. This stands as a fact, not simply a “perspective.
          As part of his constitutional role as commander in chief, the president has the authority to detain certain persons associated with terrorism. The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) from Sept. 18, 2001, as explained by the White House fact sheet, states,
          The AUMF authorizes the United States to detain certain persons who are part of or provide substantial support to al-Qa'ida, the Taliban, or associated forces engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. Decisions regarding the disposition of captured terrorists will be made on a case-by-case basis, taking into account legal requirements and the facts of each case.
          As such, the president remains responsible not only to manage the armed conflict between the U.S. and al-Qaida, the Taliban and Islamic State, but to take actions that preserve the safety of American military members and civilians.
          The executive order “would preserve military detention as a counterterrorism tool by maintaining detention facilities at the U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (GTMO), Cuba and stating unequivocally that the United States reserves the right to detain terrorists under the law of armed conflict.
          While the U.S. currently utilizes counterterrorism tools such as military action and intervention, it must retain the right to detain enemy combatants. This stands in accordance with the law of war principles. Without the right to detain prisoners, the war on terror becomes a meaningless fishing expedition of “catch and release.” The White House fact sheet notes, “The detention of enemies captured in an armed conflict is a lawful and necessary tool of warfighting that must continue to be available to the United States.” The executive order also reaffirms the right of the U.S. to transport and detain more enemy combatants to Guantanamo when necessary.
          More than 100 former prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay have re-entered combat as terrorists, killing both Americans and our allies in coalition forces. Keeping the Guantanamo Bay detention facility open averts that risk, while prioritizing safety and security for innocent people who remain targets of international terrorism.
          The executive order also emphasizes the use of the existing periodic review process that helps authorities to determine whether the continued detention of certain prisoners is necessary.
          Finally, the order notes that “the detention operation at the U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay are legal, safe, humane, and conducted consistent with United States and international law.”
          President Trump’s executive order to keep the Guantanamo Bay detention facility open allows the United States to act as a sovereign nation, capable of winning the war against radical Islamic terrorism worldwide.  Without this counterterrorism tool, victory will elude us, and innocent civilians will serve as terrorism fodder in the name of “peace” and “understanding.” The commander in chief understands this and has willingly acted to protect innocent civilians who are targets of terrorism in the United States and throughout the world.   ~The Patriot Pos

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.
