 Who Paid for That Dubious Trump/Russia Dossier? 

 
Political Editors:  Last week, Fusion GPS founder Glen Simpson gave his written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the phony dossier about Donald Trump the company produced. The question that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has asked repeatedly and has yet to receive an answer to is simple: Who originally paid Fusion GPS to investigate Trump? When the story came out last year, it was reported that a “wealthy Republican donor” was Fusion GPS’s original client. It was not until later that liar-Hillary Clinton’s campaign then hired the firm. Simpson, however, is still refusing to identify this client.
          So, who is this mysterious individual? It’s looking less likely than ever that one of Trump’s Republican primary opponents is responsible. In fact, the “wealthy Republican donor” description doesn’t necessitate that the individual in question was actually a card-carrying member of the GOP, as it is a well-established practice that those with various business interests often donate to both parties to build political favorability. Trump has admitted to doing so himself.
         A second curious angle to the dossier mystery regards the FBI’s involvement and use of
the discredited document. The Senate Judiciary Committee has sent repeated requests that the FBI make two of its top agents available for questioning on matters regarding the dossier. The FBI has so far refused. The question Grassley wants answered is whether the FBI used the dubious dossier as a pretext to gain FISA approval for surveillance of Trump campaign personnel.
          There are many questions remaining that need answering before the truth behind the whole Russian election interference is fully understood and known. But what is pretty clear is that there is still no evidence of collusion~The Patriot Post

SESSIONS DOJ, FBI Obstruct Release Of liar-CLINTON
Docs Again – Claim Not Enough Public Interest
{rickwells.us} ~ Three questions need to be asked in light of a recent outrageous determination made by the FBI. Is this or is it not the Trump administration? Is Jeff Sessions the Trump “law and order” Attorney General?... Why in the world is the FBI still covering up for liar-Hillary Clinton and helping her escape justice? Once again a request to for access to the notorious liar-Clinton emails has been denied and the obstruction machinery continues to roll on. How deep does the corruption run and to what extent has it compromised the current administration, particularly the AG? What happened to the promise to “Lock her up” for her crimes? It’s looking more and more like the incredible situation when the American people all knew that Hussein liar-nObama was lying about who he was and no one would investigate. We all know liar-Clinton is guilty hundreds of times over and not a peep out of Sessions and company. When they do act, it’s as if Hussein liar-Obama is still pulling the strings...  http://rickwells.us/sessions-doj-fbi-obstruct-release-clinton-docs-claim-not-enough-public-interest/

California Democrat Maxine Waters
Charged on 3 Counts
by Alice Greene
{punchingbagpost.com} ~ The House Ethics Committee has finally charged Maxine Waters (D-CA) with corruption. Here’s what she did... In 2008, Maxine arranged a meeting between the Treasury Department and representatives of OneUnited bank - where her husband was a notable shareholder.  As a member of the House Financial Committee, she was able to directly contact then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to speak with him about meeting with minority-owned banks. Through her efforts, OneUnited bank was able to obtain $12 million in federal bailout funding to help cover expected losses from the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If OneUnited had gone under, Maxine’s husband could have lost as much as $350,000. Oh, and she hired her own grandson Mikael Moore to work as her chief of staff...There's More.  http://punchingbagpost.com/california-democrat-maxine-waters-charged-on-3-counts

Radical Antifa Group Targets the Police
by Steve Byas
{thenewamerican.com} ~ Nationalization of the police is a longtime goal of the Left, and the targeting of local police by a violent Antifa group supports that goal... Since President Donald Trump responded to the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, by condemning “hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides,” it has become clear that the left-leaning media is going to cast the violent leftist Antifa movement as simply engaged in “resistance” to racist “hate groups,” such as the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis. Then all persons opposed to the Marxist agenda of Antifa are falsely portrayed as the same as those two groups. The reality is that Nazi is short for “National Socialist,” the political party of Adolf Hitler — a party of the Left in Germany that favored social welfare programs and heavy-handed government control of the economy and the culture...You knew this was coming https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/item/26795-radical-antifa-group-targets-the-police

Putin Issues Alarming Orders at NK Border…
Things Just Escalated
by Martin Lioll
{conservativetribune.com} ~ The biggest sign from a world leader that trouble may be afoot on the Korean Peninsula after Kim Jong Un’s latest missile launch comes not from the crazy fat kid himself. Instead... Vladimir Putin made headlines when his Russian government quietly ordered 1,500 people out of a city close to the North Korean border. The U.K. Express reported that Russian media outlets announced the alarming evacuation shortly after the latest missile test by North Korea, which flew over the Japanese island of Hokkaido. A verbal order was given to relocate 1,500 people to safe areas,” Russian social media outlet Mash reported Tuesday afternoon. “The order came from the regional department of the Russian Ministry of Emergencies.”...  http://conservativetribune.com/developing-putin-issues-border/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium...

Limbaugh – Trump Isolated By Dems And
Failure-First GOP Sellouts In Congress
{rickwells.us} ~ Limbaugh takes a short but thorough trip back over the past eight-plus years since the liar-nObama nightmare first began and the ineptitudes and false promises of the Republicans began to come to the forefront... After gradually overtaking power from the Democrats and now holding both chambers of Congress as well as the White House, the Republicans have no more excuses and it is their worst nightmare come true. They have to govern, they have to fulfill their promises or be exposed for the frauds, legislative weaklings and do-nothing sellouts that used to hide behind the Democrats and make excuses. They’re still making excuses but it’s not helping their cause. It’s only continuing to expose them as the phonies they are. The clouds of misdirection and distraction have been lifted from their deception by the opportunity Americans have given them and their failure to make any moves towards capitalizing on it. They can’t govern, they can barely stand up on two legs...  http://rickwells.us/limbaugh-trump-isolated-dems-failure-first-gop-sellouts-congress/

Hurricane Harvey Drowns
the Left’s Big Government God

{
townhall.com} ~Democrat mayors are making quite a name for themselves these days.

Vote for one, and there’s a good chance you’ll be extremely disappointed.  You might even find yourself floating your kids down the road in a refrigerator like a guy in Houston did back in 2016, one year before Hurricane Harvey.

Back then, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner found himself standing in hot water with residents in an area of Houston prone to flooding who expected more from their mayor. One resident said, “We’re just frustrated. There was no help for us,” KHOU-TV News reported.

What’s happening in Houston now feels like it’s 2005 all over again. Former Democrat mayor, Ray Nagin discouraged New Orleans residents from evacuating like Mayor Turner who also encouraged Houston residents to stay put. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, offered other advice: “Even if an evacuation order hasn’t been issued by your local official, if you’re in an area between Corpus Christi and Houston, you need to strongly consider evacuating.”

So, who is to blame for people stranded on rooftops?

While everyone wants to blame it on President Trump, as I’ve written before, the government is not our savior, so people need to get over the blame game and take care of themselves if they are physically and mentally able.

Those who don’t, join the rank of perpetual victims when they refuse to acknowledge that they are able, with God’s help, to take control over the rising water of their circumstances. Instead, they choose to assume zero responsibility for their situation and sit on the rooftop of their despair waiting for their government “savior” to rescue them. But it rarely does.

It is a lie to believe every malady known to man has absolutely nothing to do with poor choices, bad judgment or weak character. We cannot control nature, but we can make wise choices in the face of nature’s onslaught.

Mark my words, the left-leaning media will do their best to blame everything on President Trump the same way they blamed Bush for Katrina. Bush cut his vacation short to do a flyover of New Orleans, yet was accused of being a racist by those seeking to paint a sitting Republican president in the worst possible light.

Of course, they looked the other way in 2016 when former President liar-nObama continued to play golf at Martha’s Vineyard as if nothing were happening during the Baton Rouge flooding.

Don’t be surprised if NBC News’ Brian Williams shows up in Houston like he did in New Orleans. Williams and NBC News were awarded the Peabody award for misreporting un-facts about un-events the Washington Post said Williams perhaps “misremembered” the same way he misremembered his helicopter misadventure in Iraq. Williams was eventually demoted for the kind of tale telling one would expect to hear while eating smores around a campfire at Lake Wobegon.

Surely, the media will go fishing in the floods for a million ways to blame Trump, it is heartwarming to know that during a devastating time such as this we have a president who cares.

liar-nObama found time to pull away from Martha’s Vineyard to attend a posh liar-Hillary fundraiser, but was too busy to be comforter-in-chief in Baton Rouge. liar-nObama was just smoke-and-mirrors. As a senator, he condemned Bush as the “president who only saw the people from the window of an airplane instead of down here on the ground to provide comfort and aid…”

At least Bush showed up. And Trump too, wisely planning to visit locations hit by Harvey, while judiciously avoiding areas where his presence could interrupt evacuations or emergency response.

Unlike the guy whom leftists believed walked on water and who promised on his watch the planet would heal and the waters would recede. Looking at Houston right now, it obviously didn’t.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
