Gowdy - Strzok Attorney and scumbag-Schiff 
are Wrong - He Will Testify, Like it or Not
{ rickwells.us } ~ 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. Gowdy was responding to remarks that scumbag-Schiff made in an interview with CNN on June 28 about House Republicans’ efforts to obtain information about the FBI and Justice Department’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government...   https://rickwells.us/gowdy-strzok-schiff-testify/

Apparently the FBI Withheld Strzok and Page 
Memos/Emails From Inspector General and Congress – Until Now
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Well, this is interesting.  The substance of the latest information is better read by reviewing the presentation of John Solomon... (  http://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/395776-memos-detail-fbis-hurry-the...  ) The dynamic that catches my interest is how some unknown and unnamed officials inside the FBI apparently kept memos and emails between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok hidden while Inspector General Michael Horowitz was conducting his prior investigation into their conduct during the liar-Clinton email investigation: […]  Memos the FBI is now producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as “damning” or “troubling” evidence.

Beware the Red Wave
by SCOTT MCKAY
{ spectator.org } ~ Yes, Rasmussen Reports offers polling which is often of an optimistic character for those of us who lean more to the conservative side of the political fence... and because of this fact, Rasmussen’s work product is sometimes ignored by the legacy media when it discusses the current political reality. But recently Rasmussen released a poll result which shouldn’t be ignored. Namely…A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many 13% are undecided. You’ll see evidence to the contrary of Rasmussen’s findings, of course. There are those polls saying that millennials are as interested in communism as in capitalism, and there is the more anecdotal evidence within the dummycrats-Democrat Party that commie-Bernie Sanders-style socialism is ascendant. The dummycrats-Democrat primary victory by avowed socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over New York congressman Joe Crowley is being lauded as an example of the country’s lurch leftward; the party’s chairman Tom Perez even called Ocasio-Cortez its “future” last week. But however skewed Rasmussen’s poll sample might be, that 74 percent number indicates the dummycrats-Democrats are in serious trouble if they actually believe a far-left push is the key to winning those mid-term elections...   https://spectator.org/beware-the-red-wave/?utm_source=American+Spec...

Judges slap down university for fake academic freedom
by BOB UNRUH
{ wnd.com } ~ Officials at Marquette University in Milwaukee were rebuked Friday by the state Supreme Court for trying to install a politically correct code of conduct... for their tenured professors that succumbs “to the dominant academic culture of micro-aggressions, trigger warnings and safe spaces.” The dispute centered on professor John McAdams, who criticized a graduate teaching assistant in a blog post for telling a student that the concept of “gay rights” is undisputed and anyone who thinks otherwise is “homophobic.” The university suspended  McAdams for his criticism, and he never was reinstated because he refused to write an apology. The university insisted the courts should have nothing to do with the dispute. Officials at the private Roman Catholic institution learned otherwise Friday...

Trade War: America Fights Back! 
by Charles Payne
{ finance.townhall.com } ~ With the trade skirmish shifting from saber-rattling to actual policy, the market handled it very well on Thursday... A part of the reason was an overture from the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, with respect to possibly reducing European Union (EU) tariffs on American car exports to the continent. Meanwhile, $34 billion in tariffs on Chinese imports became official last night, but Chinese trade proxies were generally higher except soybean prices, which are now down more than 18% in the last three months. Technology led the way powered by a rebound in chip makers, but value-hunters are still looking at consumer staples. Market breadth was the best in a long time as there were overwhelmingly more advancers on advancing volume than decliners. On the NYSE, new 52-week highs edged up to 78, against only 37 new lows. On the NASDAQ, 85 names hit new 52-week highs against 37 new lows...

Facebook Blocks Declaration of Independence as "Hate Speech" 

by Thomas Gallatin:  In its ongoing attempts to crack down on “fake news,” Facebook has only proved what many conservatives have repeatedly warned: It’s catering to leftist bias in order to limit conservative content. Some recent incidents expose this reality.

             In a buildup to our nation’s annual celebration of Independence Day, a community newspaper, The Liberty County Vindicator, had been posting on Facebook portions of the Declaration of Independence for eight straight days. On the ninth day, the Vindicator’s scheduled excerpt was not posted by the social media site because it had been flagged as “racist” “hate speech.” The Vindicator received an automated notice stating that the scheduled post “goes against our standards on hate speech.
               The excerpt in question from the Declaration’s “Bill of Particulars” against King George III reads, “He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.” It was Thomas Jefferson’s reference to “Indian Savages” that triggered the “hate speech” designation.
               Casey Stinnett, the Vindicator’s managing editor, responded to the absurd censorship in a subsequent post and noted that his newspaper wanted “a means of contacting Facebook for an explanation or an opportunity to appeal the post’s removal, but it does not appear the folks at Facebook want anyone contacting them. Or, at least, they do not make it easy.” Fortunately, following his post, Facebook apologized to the Vindicator and posted the Declaration’s excerpt.
               But Facebook’s facepalm-worthy behavior on patriotism didn’t end with the Vindicator fiasco. On Monday, the Wes Cook band released a video for its song “I Stand for the Flag.” The band planned to use Facebook’s paid promotion tools to promote its video, which was initially accepted by Facebook only to later be rejected with the excuse given that the video was “political content.” But late Tuesday, Facebook changed its decision again, stating, “We recently announced anyone running ads about political or other major national issues must include a ‘paid for’ label. After looking again, we determined that this ad doesn’t need that label. While this is a new policy, and while we won’t ever be perfect, we think knowing who is behind an ad is important, and we’ll continue to work on improving as we roll it out.” Another “oops” statement from Facebook that once again smacks of leftist bias.
               Finally, PJ Media’s Paula Bolyard relays her recent experience of having a piece designated as “fake news” by Facebook’s “fact-checkers.” Bolyard notes a particular problem with Facebook’s self-promoted commitment to fighting “fake news.” Not only has Facebook tabbed leftist groups to “fact-check” content, it has sought to isolate itself from any direct responsibility by taking a hands-off approach to flagged content:
               First, that content’s distribution is reduced. It will appear lower in News Feed, and will be accompanied by Related Articles from fact-checkers. If people try to share the content, they will be notified of the additional reporting. They will also be notified if content they have shared in the past has since been rated by a fact-checker.
               Second, in order to more effectively fight false news, we also take action against Pages that share, and domains that publish, content which is rated “False.” Such Pages and domains will see their distribution reduced as the number of offenses increases. Their ability to monetize and advertise will be removed after repeated offenses. Over time, Pages and domains can restore their distribution and ability to monetize and advertise if they stop sharing false news.
               Publishers who issue a correction or dispute a rating may contact the fact-checker. If their correction or dispute is successful, the strike against them will be eliminated. Note that simply deleting a post or removing a URL is not sufficient to eliminate the strike against the domain or Page.
               In short, if one’s post is flagged, one can’t appeal directly to Facebook but rather to the very “fact-checkers” whose biased assessment resulted in censoring the content in the first place. It’s the foxes guarding the hen house, and that’s exactly the way Facebook wants it. That’s because it’s a means for Mark Zuckerberg and company to indirectly limit conservative content on Facebook while avoiding having to answer for it.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

From: Winer, Jonathan
Sent: September 17, 2016 at 12:40:00 PM EDT
To: Nuland, Victoria J
Subject: Re: Libya Update

Would like to discuss this and a Russian matter.

From: Nuland, Victoria J
Sent: Saturday, September 17, 2016 1:31 PM
To: Winer, Jonathan
Subject: Re. Libya Update

In ny face to face?

From: Winer, Jonathan
Sent: September 17, 2016 at 1:56:05 PM EDT
To: Nuland, Victoria J
Subject: Re: Libya Update

Yes that was [sic] be good.

From: Nuland, Victoria J
Sent: Saturday, September 17, 2016 1:58 PM
To: Winer, Jonathan
Subject: Re. Libya Update

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”

BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
