Carlson – FBI Names BLM, Black
Identity Extremists As Deadly Domestic Threat
{} ~ The FBI has identified and issued a warning against a new terror threat in America... As Tucker Carlson reports, he reminds us of the number of police officers assassinated in the past couple of years, indicating that there is a direct correlation. Carlson says, “In a new report by the FBI’s anti terror division, agents warn that America faces a new domestic terror threat from ‘black identity extremists’ who have become violently radicalized against the police since the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson three years ago.” He points out that was “an event that was relentlessly politicized by the liar-nObama administration.” He continues, “The report says those extremists ‘proactively target police and openly identify and justify their actions with social – political agendas commensurate with their perceived injustices against African Americans.'”...
NAACP Attacks Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones
For Stopping Anti-America Agitation
{} ~ The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), probably the most high profile racial supremacy organization in the world... is firing back at Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for setting workplace rules about conduct at the workplace by his hired employees, NFL players. The conduct that he is restricting, the race-baiting kneeling, sitting and other black supremacy gestures such as a raised fist, is damaging his business and alienating fans. The skin-color agitators of the NAACP may not like it, but he has every right to demand that they meet conduct standards that he sets. He also has a responsibility to himself and his business to try to stop its tanking popularity. In utilizing their typical extortion-tinged, threatening, intimidation tactics, the NAACP-remicist interim president and CEO, Derrick Johnson offered up their unfounded faux-position. He said, “This is not an issue about our flag, this is an issue about police brutality, racism, and the ability of members of the NFL whose communities are disproportionately impacted by police misconduct to peacefully say enough.”...
Weinstein High-Tails It Out of the US, 
Hiding Out In Foreign “Rehab” Center
{} ~ What do you do if you’re a rich and powerful film producer and movie studio executive who happens to also be a sexual predator and probable rapist... and things are getting a little too hot in your Los Angeles kitchen? What do you do when the potential for criminal prosecution starts to be a little too great for comfort? Do you stick around like the commoners would, waiting for investigators to get their hooks into you and take your passport? Probably not. And while you’re escaping to the relative safety of foreign shores, why not do it under the guise of seeking treatment for an addiction? Since they don’t have treatment centers for “rape addiction” or “forcing yourself upon unwilling women addiction,” a sex addiction clinic overseas is likely the best option...
Palestinian Normalization -- With Hamas, Not Israel
Palestinian and Israeli women from 
the "Women Wage Peace" group
by Bassam Tawil
{} ~ When Palestinian women took part in a march with Israeli women for peace this week, they were condemned in the harshest terms by many other Palestinians, who called for their punishment... The Palestinian women who participated in the October 8 event, organized by a group called Women Wage Peace, have been denounced by many of their own people as and "traitors" and "whores." Conversely, when Palestinian Authority (PA) officials held "reconciliation" talks with Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip and Egypt during the same period, many Palestinians praised them as "heroes" and "brave." Judging from the reactions of many Palestinians, especially on social media, they prefer peace with Hamas rather than with Israel...
House Intel Committee Ramps 
Up Probe On liar-nObama ‘Unmasking’
{} ~ The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is ramping up investigation into former President Barack liar-nObama administration’s campaign to “unmask” President Donald Trump aides... who were incidentally surveilled in meetings with foreign officials, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. The committee is also intensifying a probe into Fusion GPS, a private “opposition research” company that distributed a salacious memo on Trump, called the “Trump Dossier.” Over the next two weeks the House committee is expected to privately interview former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, who reportedly asked to unmask or identify Americans on as many as 260 occasions, primarily Trump campaign or transition officials...

Wrongly Fired Government Reformer
Considering Running Against Arizona Governor

by Rachel Alexander
{} ~ Tim Jeffries was a popular director of the Arizona Department of Economic Security, the state welfare agency, from 2015 to 2016. He became a colorful icon in Arizona government, with his smiley faces and practice of referring to employees as “colleagues.” He was likely the only state agency head to cut the size of his agency by 2 percent as instructed by Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey. He turned morale around at DES, making it a fun place to work — no easy feat at a welfare agency. The devout Catholic has a heart and passion for the poor and sick, coming from a poor upbringing himself. When the governor asked him if he wanted to be an agency head, Jeffries deliberately chose DES.

But this star reformer was pushed out in a highly publicized coup, spearheaded by the left-wing Arizona Republic which made him a target. After Jeffries fired 475 employees who were “bullies, racists, sexual harassers and slackers,” the newspaper featured some of the employees and wrongly made them out to be victims — even though some had actually been stealing from DES. The newspaper extensively covered Jeffries’ efforts to bring security in house, instead of paying for private contractors which were less accountable and not cost effective. The biased articles referred to it as “building an arsenal” and “stockpiling ammunition.”
With so much negative coverage, Governor Ducey caved to pressure, firing Jeffries in November 2016.

The firing was so unjust that one of the local left-leaning papers actually took Jeffries’ side. The Phoenix New Times expressed skepticism about the accusations brought against Jeffries. “Just before his ouster in late 2016, Jeffries reportedly bought alcohol for employees on state time, but the accusation was never proven.” As for the private security force, the paper said “much of the criticism was overblown.”

Jeffries observes, "I had the passion and courage to ‘run government at the speed of business’ as the Governor directed me. Unfortunately, it proved to be merely a campaign slogan for the Governor. Consequently, calcified bureaucracy and special vendor deals remain to the profound detriment of hard-working taxpayers that deserve good government."

Jeffries filed a $5.1 million libel claim against the state over the private security allegations. His former chief of security, Charles Loftus, filed a $2.6 million claim. Jeffries is represented by former Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne. Some of the bizarre, false accusations in the audit performed by the state Department of Public Safety are that Jeffries carried a gun on state property and wanted to arm every state employee.
Ducey is vulnerable to a challenge from the right. He is ingratiated with Senators RINO-John McCain and RINO-Jeff Flake who are disliked by the conservative base, in part due to their repeated undermining of President Trump. Ducey endorsed RINO-Flake. Ducey's lack of leadership was foundational to RINO-McCain's vote stopping the liar-nObamacare repeal. Ducey himself failed to stand with other Arizona leaders behind Trump at his August rally in Phoenix.

Ducey is also vulnerable with teachers’ associations. Prop. 123, which he championed, only provided a 2 percent raise for teachers over five years.

Jeffries explains the difference between Ducey as governor and how he would run the state, "I entered the public sector to do big things, not small things with big press releases." Jeffries describes Ducey as a “poll-driven politician.” Jeffries is fearless and unrelenting. He went after a corrupt Democratic legislator who fraudulently obtained food stamps — something his predecessor was too afraid to take on. He had another corrupt member in the sights of his Inspector General — which sadly will now be swept under the rug. He boldly called for the termination of the corrupt vendor of the State’s liar-nObamacare Medicaid Eligibility System.
"If I run and I win, I will not play small ball like the Governor. I will massively reorganize and restructure state government,” Jeffries said. “Partnering with thousands of true public servants, I will free up approximately 200 million dollars a year to invest in classrooms, foster kids, senior citizens and the developmentally disabled. These great folks need us to be audacious in vision and fearless in execution." Jeffries says he does not have aspirations for higher office afterward; he is not seeking a political career.

Jeffries is the type of candidate the conservative Breitbart powerhouse Steve Bannon might get behind. Support like that — which might lead to support from Trump — could tip a race. Breitbart reports that a “broad anti-establishment coalition” has been formed nationally to replace establishment Republicans in Congress and in key gubernatorial races. Additionally, after a successful career in business, Jeffries is independently wealthy and has a network of wealthy friends. Add to that fair press coverage from Phoenix New Times and Jeffries has a real chance of defeating Ducey. Arizonans are in an anti-incumbent mood due to RINO-McCain and RINO-Flake, and Ducey is too closely associated with the pair

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
