Sanctuary LaRaza-Friendly City Council 
Orders Patriot Removed – So He Fires Back
{rickwells.us} ~ The sanctuary state of California is now moving to silence those who challenge their criminal actions through the blatant abuse of their power... declaring incidents to have happened which did not and exceeding reasonable use of authority through by ordering their police departments to act as political thugs. As the video  shows you don’t have to be an American to serve on the Huntington Park City Council nor to influence decisions or testify in their meetings. Non-English speakers, most of whom are likely illegal aliens, are allowed to address the council in Spanish. It’s Latino first, America second as LaRaza and their ilk continue their push to takeover California. However, if you’re an American patriot, as Arthur Schaper is, you’re not only not allowed to speak, you’re ushered out of the room through the abusive collaboration of the mayor and the police chief. Pro-American views and policies have no place in Huntington Park or much of California... https://rickwells.us/sanctuary-city-patriot-removed/

liar-nObama-Era Official Sues 
Trump For Control Of Powerful Agency
by KEVIN DALEY
dailycaller.com} ~ An liar-nObama-era official sued President Donald Trump and White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney late Sunday...to secure control of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), claiming she is the lawful interim successor to former CFPB Director Richard Cordray.  Cordray’s resignation last week prompted a crisis at the CFPB, which in short order evolved into a proxy conflict over the power of the administrative state, the sprawling network of agencies that enforce federal laws and promulgate their own regulations. The law which charted the CFPB — the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act — contains a succession provision allowing the agency’s deputy director to assume the directorship if the post is vacant. Cordray designated Deputy Director Leandra English as his interim successor before resigning, citing that provision of federal law. The Trump administration countered that the president has power to name an acting director under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act (FVRA), and tapped Mulvaney to lead the agency until a permanent director is confirmed...  http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/26/obama-era-official-sues-trump-for...

Eco-Terrorist Explains Why She Tried To 
Kill An Oil Pipeline — Her Defense Is Disturbing
by CHRIS WHITE
{dailycaller.com} ~ An eco-terrorist responsible for sabotaging an oil pipeline in North Dakota suggested Saturday... that shutting down the multi-billion dollar line was necessary to defuse the ticking time bomb of man-made global warming. Temporarily taking offline a pair of pipelines in Minnesota earlier this year was part of an effort to save the world from fossil fuels, Seattle activist and poet Emily Johnston wrote in an editorial for The Guardian. A judge is allowing her to use a “necessity defense” to justify her actions last year against the Enbridge pipeline. “As recent months have made clear, climate change is not only an imminent threat; it is an existing catastrophe. It’s going to get worse, and tar sands oil—the dirtiest oil on Earth—is one of the reasons,” Johnston wrote, referring to a spate of hurricanes that clobbered the U.S. earlier this summer...  http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/26/eco-terrorist-explains-why-she-tr...

Redrawing Districts Is the 
Job of Elected Leaders, Not Judges
by Hans von Spakovsky
{dailysignal.com} ~ There aren’t many issues the Supreme Court has managed to sidestep, but political gerrymandering is one of them. Until now... The court recently heard oral arguments in Gill v. Whitford, a Wisconsin case that involves how voting district lines are drawn—an issue Justice Felix Frankfurter called a “political thicket” that the courts should avoid. We should not transfer authority for drawing political boundaries to unaccountable federal judges who, unlike legislators, can’t be voted out if we don’t like what they did... http://dailysignal.com/2017/11/21/redrawing-districts-job-elected-l...

Roy Moore bounces back in polls as election nears
{conservativeinstitute.org} ~ While many Republicans have urged former Alabama Supreme Court Justice and current U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside... following sexual misconduct allegations from at least half a dozen women, the judge’s lack of party support doesn’t seem to be slowing him down. A Tuesday poll from Sky Research has Moore up just over 7 points above his primary opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, ahead of the Dec. 12 election. Among registered voters in Alabama, Moore had 46.7 percent of the support, Jones had 39.6 percent, and 13.7 percent of voters were undecided. The poll had a margin of error of 3.1 percent...  https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/sex-scandals/roy-moore-bounce...

Billionaire Bezos' Amazon/Washington Post/CIA Alliance
by Arnold Ahlert:  Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world, with a fortune now topping $100 billion, generated primarily by the astounding success of Amazon. Since 2013, he is also owner of The Washington Post, one of the most transparently anti-Trump newspapers in the nation. Bezos, Amazon and the Post are entitled to take whatever political positions they want. But Bezos’ relationship with the CIA is extremely troubling.

          It’s no secret The Washington Post has force-fed America the idea that Donald Trump’s victory was the result of “collusion” between members of his campaign and the Russians, with the implication that Trump himself was involved. Consider the source, but columnist Glen Greenwald  eviscerate done of its many stories on the subject, calling it “classic American journalism of the worst sort,” explaining that its “key claims are based exclusively on the unverified assertions of anonymous officials, who in turn are disseminating their own claims about what the CIA purportedly believes, all based on evidence that remains completely secret.
          That story — and the complete lack of journalistic integrity it demonstrated — was hardly an outlier. The Post published another piece so egregiously sloppy, Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi characterized it as an “astonishingly lazy report” that has “no analog that I can think of in modern times.” (Coming from Rolling Stone, that’s saying something.) It was about 200 websites the Post labeled as “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” Despite Post columnist Craig Timberg’s assertion there were independent teams of researchers making the claims, Taibbi reveals the meat of the report relied on an organization known as PropOrNot, which he describes as a group that offered “zero concrete evidence of coordination with Russian intelligence agencies.
          Zero critical skills have also been a staple at the paper. Post writer Adam Entous attempted to turn a joke made by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) — “I think Putin pays Trump” — into another piece about Russian collusion. The Post also ran a discredited piece insisting Assistant U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to resign. It was a lie about James Comey being fired after requesting more funds for investigations, and it was soon debunked by then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. Then there was yet another deliberately misleading story about Trump “leaking” classified intel to the Russians — before the Post revealed that every president “has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law” … in paragraph seven.
          Post reporter Josh Rogin is in a class by himself. As The Daily Wire revealed last February, Rogin managed to get three major stories wrong in the space of only 10 days, two of which falsely perpetrated the Trump administration “chaos” narrative.
          And last Friday it was revealed that ostensibly objective Post reporter Janell Ross joined George Soros and other Democrat donors at a secret meeting of the Democracy Alliance, where she gave a presentation to an organization that calls itself “the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States.” Ross attended “without notifying her superiors,” The Washington Free Beacon reported.
          Whether Bezos merely abides these machinations or actively encourages his newspaper’s efforts to delegitimize Trump’s presidency is impossible to know.
          What is possible to know is that in 2013, Bezos secured a $600 million deal with the CIA — more than twice what he paid for the Post itself that same year — to provide the agency with cloud services. Last Monday, the Post itself acknowledged that reality, revealing the service will be called Amazon Web Services Secret Region. In a statement posted by Amazon Web Services, CIA chief information officer John Edwards noted the development would be “a key component of the intel community’s multi-fabric cloud strategy.
          When it was initially announced, Post critics rightfully referred to this arrangement as a serious conflict of interest that should be disclosed to readers every time the Post is reporting on the intelligence community in any capacity. A petition was circulated by the RootsAction website stating any coverage of the CIA “should include full disclosure that the owner of the Washington Post is also the main owner of Amazon — and Amazon is now gaining huge profits directly from the CIA.
          RootAction co-founder Norman Solomon further explained why such a disclosure is critically important. “We should keep in mind that hundreds of newspapers around the country routinely publish articles from the Washington Post, and those articles are also widely read online,” he stated at the time. “Most days, millions of people are reading Post stories about CIA activities that do not mention that the Post’s sole owner is in a business relationship with the CIA via his company Amazon.
          As Greenwald reminds us above, that’s still the case. And while there’s a law that makes it a felony to leak classified information, it applies only to the leakers themselves. With rare exceptions, two different Supreme Court decisions have established the press’s right to publish such ill-gotten gains. That the same agency supplying the Post with illegal intel has a business relationship with its owner should trouble every American.
          So should the paper’s attempt to manipulate an election. “The problem with the Washington Post’s scandal story about Judge Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for the Alabama Senate seat once held by now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is that the Washington Post has become one giant editorial page, with no credibility on factual matters because it is so frenetically anti-Trump,” writes Washington Examiner columnist Daniel Oliver.
          Moore’s denials are suspect, but so is the Post’s timing. The paper is certainly entitled to publish 38-year-old allegations, but it’s up to the public to determine whether they are true, or whether they are part of a grand strategy to make “guilty until proven innocent” the defining factor in political races, especially when those races accrue to Democrat interests. And that public must do so amid further efforts by the Post to conflate any support for Moore with immorality, despite his pro-abortion opponent, a binary choice election that may determine Senate control, and a Congress that created a secret slush fund to protect its own sexual predators.
          In a shareholder conference last May, Bezos insisted Amazon will “not oppose or favor any presidential candidate or elected official, that’s not our job.” Instead, he said, “The right thing for us is to take a very measured issue-by-issue approach.” Yet one of those “measured approaches” was opposing Trump’s travel ban from terrorist-harboring countries — a stance “coincidentally” reinforced by a plethora of stories in The Washington Post.
          Moreover, as Bezos’ empire expands, using what amounts to predatory pricing to drive competitors out of business, so do his powers of customer “persuasion” epitomized by Bezos’ assertion that his goal is to make people feel that if they fail to become an Amazon Prime member, they “are being irresponsible.
          Customers that now include the CIA. Thus Bezos wields enormous power, whether his vehicle for its dissemination is world’s largest retailer, or a newspaper whose stories are taken as gospel by media outlets throughout the nation. That he also maintains a substantial relationship with the CIA makes an utter mockery of the media’s traditional role as government watchdog.
          A 2013 biography of Bezos was entitled “The Everything Store.” Americans might be forgiven for wondering when “everything” ultimately includes an unprecedented amount of political power in the hands of a single individual — aided and abetted by the intel community.  ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

 Kavanaugh Accuser Donated   To Hillary Clinton  10 Times,  60+ Liberal Groups 

Reportedly attempted to conceal political activity by scrubbing social media accounts

Over the weekend, a name and face were added to the previously anonymous sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is now threatening to derail his nomination. Those looking to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation certainly saved their best for last, as the prior attempts included pathetic stunts such as:

– Claiming to file perjury charges against Kavanaugh, which only Jeff Sessions would have the ability to file.

– Packing the hearings with hysterical protesters, resulting in hundreds of arrests.

– Threatening female Republicans with extortion.

– Cory Booker comparing himself to Spartacus, the escaped slave who led a revolt against the Romans.

The identity of the accuser was revealed as Christine Blasey Ford, who has agreed testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford reportedly made the allegations back in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Feinstein waited until it was close to the vote to confirm Kavanaugh before making the accusations public.

There’s a record of Ford making the accusation in a 2012 therapy session, though Kavanaugh isn’t named in the session notes that Ford gave to the press. Ford alleges that in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh entered a room drunk, pinned her to a bed, and groped her over her clothing. Kavanaugh “categorically denied” the allegations.View image on Twitter

Fin Gomez @finnygo   NEW: Statement from Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

There is a slight discrepancy in the account Ford provided in her letter to Feinstein and in her therapist’s notes, but that could simply be due to an error on her therapists part.

There are however some other questions that need to be answered which call into question Ford’s motives.

As Grabien reported, they include:

1. Why Ford deleted her public social media accounts before revealing herself.

Ford deleted all of her public social media before she came forward, making it difficult to see the advocacy and partisanship she was engaged in the time leading up to her making her allegation public. Of course, Ford may simply value her privacy, but the act of deleting her public postings will inevitably make some wonder what she didn’t want seen.

2. That Ford may have an unrelated grudge against Kavanaugh, as his mother, once a circuit court judge, ruled against Ford’s parents.

In August 1996, Christine Blasey Ford’s parents, Paula and Ralph Blasey, were foreclosed upon. Kavanaugh’s mom, Martha, was then serving as a judge on the Montgomery Country Circuit Court, and she ruled against Christine Ford’s parents.

3. That Ford is a Democrat who donates to left-wing causes, attended the anti-Trump March for Science, and previously signed an open letter challenging Trump’s border policy.

Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue.

Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “pussy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development.

There’s no statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland, where she claims that the assault happened. Rather than go to the police, Ford went to Dianne Feinstein. If her accusations are true, she should immediately file a police report against Kavanaugh and take him to trial. If she doesn’t, perhaps that’s because she knows the consequences of filing a false police report.
