 The Manafort 'Raid'? 
On July 26, FBI agents under instruction from special counsel Robert Mueller raided the Alexandria, Virginia, home of Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. The raid was a non-violent affair — no doors were broken down nor machine guns drawn nor flash grenades used. It was a raid in that it was before dawn and an unannounced enforcement of a search warrant as part of the investigation into Russian election meddling, and Manafort was reportedly fully cooperative. According to The Washington Post, the FBI warrant covered "documents related to tax, banking and other matters."
          The day before the FBI searched his house, Manafort voluntarily met with Senate Intelligence Committee staff members, and he was scheduled to meet with the Senate Judiciary Committee two days later. And he also willingly turned over requested files and documents to the Senate Judiciary Committee. In other words, it seems rather strange that the FBI deemed it necessary to execute an unannounced search warrant in such a manner — unless Manafort wasn't nearly so cooperative as he seems.
          Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy muses, "There are two possible rationales for a search warrant under the circumstances. First, the legitimate rationale: Investigators in good faith believed Manafort, who is either a subject of or witness in their investigation, was likely to destroy rather than surrender relevant evidence. Second, the brass-knuckles rationale: The prosecutor is attempting to intimidate the witness or subject — to say nothing of others who are similarly situated — into volunteering everything he may know of an incriminating nature about people the prosecutor is targeting." McCarthy also notes, "A search warrant is issued in a criminal investigation only if a judge finds probable cause that a crime has been committed and that evidence of this crime will be found in the place to be searched."
          Recall back in August 2016, Trump removed Manafort as his campaign manager. The reasons suggested for this change were that Trump felt "boxed in" and "controlled" by Manafort. Trump needed to be Trump. It was also reported that the Trump team was uncomfortable with news of Manafort's involvement with Russia. As Politico reported at the time, Trump family members "felt [Manafort] hadn't been entirely forthright about his activities overseas. ... Family members were also unhappy about changes made to the GOP platform that were seen as beneficial to Russia, which they felt Manafort played a role in."
          Back to the current investigation. Is there an investigative competition between Mueller's squad and the Senate Judiciary Committee, as both are looking into Russian election meddling? Could this explain the motive behind the FBI's pre-dawn search warrant? Did Mueller's team want to get its hands on documents and files before the Senate Judiciary Committee? Certainly don't forget that there are essentially no limits on Mueller's investigation. What we have are a lot of questions, but few answers.

Rice Defends McMaster For Giving
liar-nObama Operatives Security Clearances
{rickwells.us} ~ There’s that old adage that you judge people by the company they keep and another one about who their friends are... There should be a particular DC Swamp variety that declares you can judge people by the type of lying globalist trash they enable, particularly if they later feel compelled to help them justify their actions. Judging from the remarks made by notorious liar, deep state globalist and liar-nObama lackey, Susan Rice, McMaster is everything she’s desperately trying to claim he isn’t. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Rice defended HR McMaster, essentially an liar-nObama /Soros operative himself, from attacks by President Trump’s unhappy patriot base...  http://rickwells.us/rice-defends-mcmaster-giving-obama-operatives-security-clearances/

DNC Hack Was 'Inside Job,' Not by Russia
by Todd Beamon
{newsmax.com} ~ "There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee's system on July 5 last year — not by the Russians, not by anyone else," according to the Nation's report, referencing conclusions by a group of former NSA computer experts... "Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak — a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. "In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC's system," the experts concluded, since a remote hack of the committee's servers — with the volume of data stolen — would have been technologically impossible...  http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/hack-dnc-wikileaks-julian-assange/2017/08/10/id/807016/

The Threat is no Longer the Russians But
Our Own Hypocritical Establishment on the Left
by Miguel A. Faria
{aim.org} ~ One thing is clear – regardless what the left-wing media would have you believe, the threat is no longer the Russians but our own hypocritical establishment on the Left... beginning with the media and Hollywood, and ending with academia and the liberal establishment. We hear much about Vladimir Putin’s alleged influence on the 2016 elections, offered with so little in the way of proof that this must be considered fake news. In fact, we hear much more negative things about Russia because the liberal establishment, which still can’t accept the results of this election, have decided they will do anything to delegitimize and derail the Trump presidency. And they are getting more and more desperate as prosperity, optimism and confidence return – reflected not only in the stock markets’ historic climb but in the turning of the wheels of the American economy. Their polls have been exposed as fake, their hit jobs are regarded as partisan attacks, and the notion that better times are ahead seems to be supported by the eye test – all of which means we’re coming to the end of the days when they can use alleged Russian interference in the election as a diversionary weapon...  http://www.aim.org/guest-column/the-threat-is-no-longer-the-russians-but-our-own-hypocritical-est...

Big Liar
by Dinesh D'Souza
{frontpagemag.com} ~ Fascism and Nazism are both phenomena of the left. This makes ideological sense, because at their core they represent ideologies of the centralized, all-powerful state... Moreover, fascism grew out of Marxism, and fascism’s founder Benito Mussolini, was a Marxist and lifelong socialist. Hitler, too, was a socialist who headed the National Socialist Party and in fact changed the name of the German Workers Party to make it the National Socialist German Workers Party. The man most responsible for the progressive redefinition of fascism is Theodor Adorno, a German Marxist intellectual and a member of the influential Institute for Social Research, otherwise known as the Frankfurt School. The Frankfurt School scholars were leftists and most of them were refugees from Nazi Germany.  Some settled in Europe; others like Adorno and Herbert Marcuse came to the United States...  http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/267543/big-liar-dinesh-dsouza

House Conservatives Move
to Revive liar-nObamacare Repeal
by Thomas Phippen
{dailysignal.com} ~ The House’s most conservative caucus hopes to force a vote on a clean liar-nObamacare repeal bill in coming weeks through a rare congressional procedure... The House Freedom Caucus, chaired by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., will encourage members to sign a “discharge petition” allowing a bill similar to the December 2015 repeal of liar-nObamacare—which passed both the House and Senate but was vetoed by then-President Barack liar-nObama—to proceed to a floor vote. If the petition receives 218 signatures, it will pull a March bill identical to the 2015 repeal of the Affordable Care Act out of committee and straight to a floor vote, a spokeswoman for Meadows said...  http://dailysignal.com/2017/08/11/house-conservatives-move-to-revive-obamacare-repeal/?utm_source...

 Regardless of Poverty's Cause, Christians Most 
 Generous to Poor 
By Louis DeBroux:  Progressive Democrats and the media love to paint conservative Christians as mean-spirited Bible-thumpers, and a recent poll from The Washington Post/Kaiser Family Foundation is the latest tool to justify such slanderous claims. According to the poll, which gauged opinions on the root causes of poverty, 46% of Christians (and 53% of white evangelical Protestants) blame poverty on a lack of effort, compared to 29% of non-Christians who feel this way. Conversely, of the atheist/agnostic/non-religious polled, 65% blamed circumstances for poverty.
          The poll was the impetus for "journalists" like Newsweek's Jason Le Miere to take Christians to task for allegedly being un-Christian. Le Miere quotes the Bible, where Christ commands His followers to care for the poor — though, one wonders, if he would have quoted the Bible in an article on, say, abortion or marriage.
          Le Miere makes but a single reference to the biblical commandment to labor before going on to cite the passages about caring for the poor. However, therein lies the critical distinction. In Genesis 3:19, the Lord declared to Adam, "By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread," and in Exodus 20, the Lord commands us to labor for six days before resting on the Sabbath. The Apostle Paul instructed, "If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat" (2 Thessalonians 3:6-13).
          Because leftists generally use the Bible only to criticize Christians, they don't grasp that the two commandments — that a man labor for his daily bread, and give to the poor — are not exclusive but rather work in conjunction with one another. Yes, we must help the poor, but the poor also have an obligation to first labor in their own behalf.
          Furthermore, charity is an individual, voluntary act. If we see a person in need and give to him of the fruits of our labor, of our own free will, that is charity. If we see someone in need and hire a government agent to put a gun to someone else's head and force them to give, that's not charity but legalized extortion. When the rich young ruler asked Christ how to obtain heaven, beyond keeping the commandments, he was told to sell all he possessed and give to the poor. When the ruler left discouraged, desiring heaven but unwilling to part with his riches, we can note that Christ did not send his apostles, or Roman centurions, to attack the young prince, rob him, and give his treasure to the poor.
          The poll sets up a false dichotomy, as The Federalist's Jessica Burke points out: "Poverty is too complex to easily isolate one cause. There are some decisions and behaviors that can lead to a person being poor, and there are some circumstances that lead to it as well. When it comes to poverty, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to what is causing it and what will alleviate it."
          It is undeniable that behavior plays an enormous role in avoiding or escaping poverty. Certain behaviors almost guarantee a life of poverty. As even the left-leaning Brookings Institute notes, the vast majority of Americans can avoid poverty by finishing high school, getting a job, and waiting until age 21 to get married and have children — in that order.
          To those in poverty, and especially those working to escape poverty, Christians have a religious and moral imperative to be charitable, and all accounts show they do just that.
          Despite the portrayal by Le Miere and other leftists of Christians as judgmental and miserly, the truth is conservative Christians are the most charitable people to be found.
          Faith aside, nationally speaking, Americans in general are the most generous people on Earth, giving, as a percentage of income, more than twice as much as Canadians and Britons, and 20 times more than Germans or Italians. Additionally, with the exception of the lowest income bracket, more than half of all Americans of every single income bracket give to charity. This goes for the oft-vilified Top 1%, who account for more than a third of all charitable donations.
          Further undermining the narrative of the heartless Christian is the fact that, according to the well-respected Philanthropy Chronicle, conservative and religious states are the most generous givers. Using data from 2012 and that year's election map, 17 of the most generous states voted for Mitt Romney, while 15 of the least charitable 17 went for Barack liar-nObama. Conservatives tend to be generous with their own money, while leftists are "generous" with other people's money. From a religious standpoint, heavily Mormon Utah, with a giving rate of 6.56%, was the most charitable, while New Hampshire, where less than a third of residents even believe there is a God, gave away just 1.74% of income.
          So what does it all mean? It means that poverty can be caused by laziness, circumstances or oppression (Venezuelan socialism, anyone?). It means Christians believe that hard work and making good choices will keep most people out of poverty. It also means that Christians are far more generous than their secular counterparts when it comes to personally sacrificing to meet the needs of the poor and downtrodden.
          And despite leftists deliberately distorting biblical teachings, that is exactly what Christ taught.  ~The Patriot Post
