Judge Jeanine – Trump Genius Brought 
N Korea To The Table Where Others Failed 
{ rickwells.us } ~ Judge Jeanine Pirro observes the fact that “genius is rarely recognized at the time it occurs... greatness most often realized not in the moment but rather in retrospect.” That is the situation she sees with President Trump, as he has “waged his unique battle to get North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong Un, to the bargaining table. What’s worse, aside from their criticism of his style, the media and establishment politicians have a deep-rooted hatred for Trump, who represents the end of their good old boy self-serving system and a return of power to the American people. She points out that as Kim continued to launch his missiles and conduct nuclear tests President Trump warned him he was in danger of experiencing “fire and fury like the world has never seen” and “that his nuclear button was bigger and more powerful than the dictator’s.”...   https://rickwells.us/judge-jeanine-trump-genius/

Crazy Joy Reid Has New Fake Claim About NRA
by Joe Newby And Jeff Dunetz
{ lidblog.com } ~ Does Joy Reid get these crazy lies while in the padded room... wearing a jacket with he loooooooong sleeves that tie together in the back? During the Saturday edition of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” host Joy Reid falsely claimed the National Rifle Association (NRA) is aligned with the alt-right in an effort to make guns a cultural issue, Breitbart.com reported. “The NRA has sort of aligned itself with the so-called alt-right,” she said, offering no proof whatsoever of her outrageous claim. “They’ve made it a cultural issue and sent signals that it is the scary brown people you need to arm yourself for civil war against. It’s crazy messaging. That next generation, very multi-racial, very multi-cultural. They’re not interested in that message.”... https://lidblog.com/crazy-joy-reid-fake-claim-nra/

A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism 
in Britain: February 2018
by Soeren Kern
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ February 1. Foreign Office officials invited 1,800 female staff members to wear Islamic headscarves to mark World Hijab Day... The department gave away taxpayer-funded headscarves, claiming they symbolized "liberation, respect and security." Critics, citing the compulsory veiling of women in Islamic countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, said the garment is a symbol of male oppression. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said, "I'd like to know whose bright idea this was. It is ridiculous, a complete waste of taxpayers' money and not the business of a government department. I can't see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out of crosses." February 1. Max Hill QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, declared  that it is "fundamentally wrong" to use the phrase "Islamist terrorism" to describe attacks carried out in Britain and elsewhere. Hill said that the word terrorism should not be attached "to any of the world religions" and that the term "Daesh-inspired terrorism" should be used instead. Tory MP Philip Davies blasted Hill for "pandering" to political correctness: "It might not be acceptable in the trendy metropolitan circles he moves in, but all he's doing is showing how out of touch he is with the public at large. I suggest this politically-correct snowflake gets out more."...   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12019/islam-multiculturalism-bri...

Nearly finished US peace plan won’t 
call for two-state solution — report 
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ US President Donald Trump’s peace plan is nearly finished and the White House intends to present to the proposal soon... The New York Times reported Sunday. Likening the plan to the Israeli-developed GPS app Waze — which allows users to bypass traffic jams — one senior US official told the paper that the “ultimate deal” would prevent both sides from falling into the traps that have sunk most other peace proposals. While the three senior officials interviewed for the article declined to provide the details of the proposal, they told The New York Times that it would not have a set of broad guiding principles as previous plans have been known to contain. Instead, the document is said to provide specific solutions to the main issues of borders, security, refugees and the status of Jerusalem...  https://www.timesofisrael.com/nearly-finished-us-peace-plan-wont-ca...

Liberal mag inadvertently 
exposed 'Trump dossier' lie
by ART MOORE 
{ wnd.com } ~ A lengthy, glowing New Yorker magazine profile on the anti-Trump “dossier” author, Christopher Steele, reported the former MI6 agent knew that his work was funded by the liar-Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

That claim conflicts with the FBI’s explicit statement in its October 2016 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance application that Steele was unaware of who financed his work for Fusion GPS, the opposition-research company hired by the Democrats’ law firm Perkins Coie, reports investigative reporter Sara Carter.

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has testified to Congress that the dossier was essential to obtaining the warrant to spy on former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page.

New Yorker writer Jane Mayer wrote that several months after Steele was subcontracted by Fusion GPS in the spring of 2016, he learned his research was being jointly subsidized by the liar-Clinton campaign and the DNC.

But in a footnote on the warrant application to the FISA court on Oct. 21, 2016, the FBI stated “Source #1,” meaning Steele, was “never advised” as to “the motivation behind the research into Candidate #1’s Trump’s ties to Russia.”

Former Senator Tom Coburn provides the solution to how “we the people” and the states can finally wrest control from Washington insiders in “Smashing the DC Monopoly,” available at the WND Superstore.

Carter asks: “Did Steele lie to the FBI or did the FBI choose not to disclose this information to the secret court?”

Steele held personal animus toward Trump, and was “passionate” about ensuring the real estate billionaire did not become president, Senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr informed the Justice Department, according to the House Intelligence Committee’s majority Republican memo, released Feb. 2. Ohr met multiple times with Steele, beginning in the summer of 2016.

Steele was suspended and then terminated by the FBI as a source after he disclosed to the media his relationship with the bureau. But Steele, the memo states, continued contact with the Justice Department through Ohr, who worked closely with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Republican senators Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and rino-Lindsey Graham, a senior committee member, have named Steele in a criminal referral, accusing him of making false statements about “the distribution of claims contained in the dossier.”

Meanwhile, the former Russian double agent authorities believe was poisoned with a nerve agent in the U.K. last weekend has links to Steele, the London Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

The Telegraph said Sergei Skripal, who remains in critical condition, was in close contact with a security consultant who worked for Steele. The paper said that if the Kremlin believed Skripal “might have helped with the compilation of the dossier, it could explain the motive for the assassination attempt in Salisbury town center.”

Steele: Dossier ‘unverified,’ ‘raw intelligence’

The former Trump campaign volunteer Page has denied all of the accusations made against him in the Steele dossier and has filed lawsuits against Buzzfeed and other media outlets for publishing the claims.

Powerline blogger Scott Johnson points out that the New Yorker feature by Jane Mayer, which “presents Steele as a left-liberal heartthrob,” doesn’t mention the fact that Steele is the defendant in several defamation lawsuits contesting the veracity of the dossier.

With the stakes raised for false testimony, Steele has downplayed the significance of his findings, noted former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy.

In a lawsuit by filed in London by Aleksej Gubarev, whom Steele accused of participating in Russian intelligence hacking, the former British spy testified the dossier is merely a compilation of bits of “raw intelligence” that were “unverified.”

Steele explained he passed along the information because it “warranted further investigation,” not because he could vouch for its truthfulness.

Powerline’s Johnson observed that the New Yorker’s Mayer “should have been especially interested in Steele’s disclaimer of the veracity of his dossier.”

Mayer wrote that she represented the New Yorker when it was among the “major press organs” that met with Steele “during the stretch run of a contentious presidential election.”

Deadline for answers on ‘dirty dossier’

In an interview Monday with Fox News, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., reacted to the New Yorker profile, calling it “more evidence about how dirty this dossier is.”

“The dossier on the face of it is ridiculous,” Nunes said. “The Russians had an operation against us, but they’ve always had an operation against the United States of America, going back for many, many years and many elections.”

Nunes told Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs Wednesday that top officials from the liar-nObama and Trump administrations have until Friday to answer a questionnaire to find out what they known about the Democrats’ funding of the dossier.

Nunes said his committee has received “quite a few” responses, noting the initial deadline was last Friday. A few extension requests were granted, he said, and there are a few individuals who never replied.

“If they don’t respond by the end of this week, then they will be getting subpoenaed to do a deposition,” Nunes warned.

Wednesday night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he is considering appointing a special counsel to probe the FBI and Justice Department investigations of alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russia in the 2016 election.

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.
