Fitton – DIRTY COPS Mueller, STRZOK Investigation “Irredeemable Mess” 
Trump Needs To End
{rickwells.us} ~ Liz MacDonald interviewed Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton about what he described as “a mess” at DOJ and the FBI... and their political witch hunt being led by dirty cops Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller. In the setup MacDonald plays a clip of President Trump stating his disdain for the double standard where the lies of liar-Hillary Clinton are ignored and covered up while a single instance of fabricated falsehood is used to destroy Flynn. President Trump said, “liar-Hillary Clinton on the Fourth of July weekend, went to the FBI, no under oath, it was the most incredible thing anyone’s ever seen. She lied many times, nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and it’s like, they ruined his life. It’s very unfair.”... https://rickwells.us/fitton-mueller-strzok-mess/

Harvard Poll Finds Millennials Biggest 
Voting Group, Overwhelmingly Democrat
by Trey Sanchez
{truthrevolt.org} ~ Millennials now make up the largest voting group in the U.S. and are overwhelmingly Democrat by a two-to-one margin... according to a new Harvard University poll. The university’s Institute of Politics polled those between 18 and 29 and found they prefer Democratic candidates 65 percent to 33 percent. The reason given is that they’re “fearful” about the future and President Trump. Only 25 percent of those polled approve of the current president...These snowflakes are being misinformed.  http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/harvard-poll-finds-millennials-bigg...

DACA Is Not What the Democrats 
Say It Is. Here Are the Facts.
by Hans von Spakovsky
{dailysignal.com} ~ Some members of Congress are threatening to block government funding unless Congress provides amnesty to so-called Dreamers... the illegal aliens included in President Barack liar-nObama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Donald Trump is ending. Such an effort would be fundamentally flawed and would only encourage even more illegal immigration—just as the 1986 amnesty in the Immigration Reform and Control Act did. Democrats portray the DACA program as only benefitting those who were a few years old when they came to the U.S. illegally, leaving them unable to speak their native language and ignorant of their countries’ cultural norms. Therefore, the reasoning goes, it would be a hardship to return them to the countries where they were born...  Continue reading. http://dailysignal.com/2017/12/04/daca-not-democrats-say-facts/?utm...

Judah the Maccabee, Judah the Mace-Man
by Philologos
{mosaicmagazine.com} ~ First, though, I should point out that the use of the word “Maccabees” for the successful 2nd-century-BCE Jewish rebels against Syrian Greek rule derives from a misunderstanding... At the time of their uprising, there were no Maccabees. They and the royal house they established were known to their Hebrew- and Aramaic-speaking compatriots in Palestine as the Ḥashmona’im, the Hasmoneans, after the revolt’s first leader, Matityahu ha-Ḥashmona’i, whose five sons headed it after his death. The source of “Hasmonean” is uncertain; most likely Ḥashmona was the name of either an ancestor in Matityahu’s family or of a place from which the family hailed...  https://mosaicmagazine.com/observation/2017/12/judah-the-maccabee-j...

Federal Grand Jury Indicts Steinle 
Murderer In Less Than A Week

{rickwells.us} ~ The recent despicable decision by a San Francisco libtard jury in letting Jose Zarate off the hook... 
for killing Kate Steinle was not only a shocking and outrageous slap in the face to the family of murdered American woman, but to all of those who have had family members killed by illegal aliens. It was an affront to all Americans who want their border secured committed by the open border globalists who have seized power in the lawless, sanctuary state of California. But California, for the present time anyway, is not yet a part of Mexico and still remains under federal jurisdiction. There are still options for the federal government to act in this case and get some semblance of justice for the Steinle family as well as putting the sanctuary cities of this nation on alert that they won’t get away with killing innocent Americans like they are shooting ducks sitting on a pond...

Defense Spending Can Be Wasteful Too
by Todd Johnson:  With last week’s historic passage of new tax legislation in the Senate and yesterday’s motion in the House to go to tax conference, the Republican Party is well on its way to having a tax bill for President Donald Trump to sign before the end of this year.

          While the legislation will represent the first overhaul of the tax code in over 30 years, questions abound, from both the Right and the Left, as to whether it will actually work once implemented. More than a few tax experts are still trying to wrap their heads around the particulars, especially since chunks of the 479 page document were crossed out and replaced with hand-written amendments at the last minute.
          Perceptions aside, one of the major questions that hasn’t been answered by Republican lawmakers is how the lost revenue will be accounted for in future budgeting plans. While some, like Senate Majority Leader RINO-Mitch McConnell, think the cuts will spur the economy, conservative organizations like the Tax Foundation believe the bill will add $500 billion to the nation’s deficit. More concerning is that many of the tax cuts will expire in a few years, which means that Congress will have to vote on extending them. Needless to say that isn’t a guarantee.
          Which leads to our main concern. Throughout this whole process, in which the Senate vote came less than a month after the proposal was made and no hearings or testimony occurred, not one member of Congress even brought up defense spending reform.
          It’s easy to see why. Earlier this year, in separate bills, the Senate and the House voted to increase defense spending to around $700 billion, way over the “sequestration” spending caps set in the 2011 Budget Control Act. Not many politicians want to be viewed as not supporting the troops so it’s not a surprise that proposed defense budgets continue to grow and grow and grow.
          Defense expenditures are one of the areas that the Constitution specifically addresses when it comes to spending. Any veteran and more than a few others should understand the importance of having a force ready to take on enemies around the world. However, the question is how much is enough?
          A cursory examination of the most recent National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) shows numerous opportunities where money can be saved. Out of the base budget, money could be saved by closing unneeded bases to cutting the officer corps in the Army and Navy to radically altering the procurement process for military weaponry. Changes in just these three areas alone would save the American taxpayer billions of dollars.
          It’s important to note that defense allocations are but one symptom of a disease that permeates all federal spending. The nation’s budget problems aren’t because of defense waste (which absolutely does exist) but our budget problems infect defense spending — i.e., cronyism, pet projects, etc.
          Most politicians love to push federal dollars to their states but that type of behavior is only exacerbating the national debt, which currently stands at $20.5 trillion dollars, or $170,000 per taxpayer. Only time will tell if our nation’s leaders decide to do the responsible thing or continue to spend the nation into oblivion — because the problem isn’t revenue; it’s spending.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
