Manafort filing unmasks DOJ meeting with 
AP reporters, questions if 'grand jury secrecy' violated 
by Catherine Herridge
{ foxnews.com } ~ Lawyers for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort are raising concerns about a 2017 meeting between top law enforcement figures and Associated Press reporters... questioning whether “grand jury secrecy” was violated and revealing memos that say the reporters even offered investigators a “code” pertaining to their client’s storage facility. The details emerged in a series of recent filings, including an effort by Manafort's attorneys to get his criminal trial moved from Northern Virginia, citing pretrial publicity. “Mr. Manafort's legal issues and the attendant daily media coverage have become a theater in the continuing controversy surrounding President Trump and his election," Manafort's lawyers wrote Judge T.S. Ellis, who is overseeing the bank and tax fraud case in Northern Virginia. A second prosecution, involving similar charges, is underway in Washington, D.C. Arguing for a trial in Roanoke, Va., Manafort's legal team said an “inside-the-beltway jury” would be biased against their client...

UK Parliament: Little Interest in Grooming Gangs
by Andrew Jones
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ In response to Britain's ongoing sexual grooming scandal... a group of 20 MPs signed an open letter to recently appointed Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, urging coordinated action. As the UK Parliament has 650 MPs, the 20 signatories constitute a mere 3% willing to support the protection of children subjected to gang-rape, trafficking and torture, and at times murder. Such a paltry number of politicians willing to speak out against child sexual slavery seems yet more evidence of the moral bankruptcy of Britain's political elite and how low the country appears to have sunk. Britain's media elite have ignored the letter. Reporting has been limited to the local press in Oxford  and Rochdale -- areas afflicted by grooming -- as well as a few alternative media outlets such as Breitbart London, and indirect reference on Sky News...   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12662/britain-parliament-groomin...

Will #Resistance summer dampen 
the dunnycrats-Democrats' big autumn?
by Salena Zito
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ On Wednesday afternoon during the height of the Fourth of July festivities at the Statue of Liberty... Therese Patricia Okoumou began scaling Lady Liberty and held a T-shirt up with “Trumpcare Makes us Sick” on one side and “Rise and Resist” on the other. Despite telling authorities she would not come down until “all the children are released," she eventually descended after a team of over a dozen highly skilled New York City police officers with the department’s emergency service unit cajoled her down from the skirts of the statue's base. Her protest evacuated Liberty Island, turning away over 4,000 people who had planned to make a visit to arguably America’s most iconic symbol of liberty as part of their family’s celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence...   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/will-resistan...

No More Illegal Immigration – INTRUDER ALERT!

by Dustin Koellhoffer
{ ipatriot.com } ~ Finding the right words is often difficult when dealing with the ignorance of liberalism... They constantly corrupt the language, deliberately make words ambiguous, and use the confusion they create to impose their subterfuge of making lawbreaking righteous. Even the term ‘liberal,’ which used to refer to Christian Americans who wanted to advance their culture and technology while worshipping God has been corrupted by the Left. Now ‘liberal’ refers to atheist socialists who want to tear down everything that Christians have built to establish dictatorships. Language changes over time because the culture changes, but not always for the better as socialists prove in their desire to progress backwards and regress America back into totalitarianism of government rule. The reason they want this is because leftists are control freaks who want to impose their ideology on others for their own benefit. Two Americas: Americanism or Socialism, Right vs. Left “Illegal aliens” was fine in describing foreigners who came into America illegally, but liberals are so stoopid they thought it sounded too much like saying we were being invaded by criminals from another planet. Then they altered the term to “illegal immigrant.” Now they say that sounds like we are saying immigrants are illegal people and “no person is illegal” because they are so stoopid they can’t figure out that people committing crimes by breaking the law makes their actions illegal.  Then they came up with “undocumented workers” as if this is Nazi Germany where you are required to have your papers on you at all times and it’s legal for them to work without citizenship papers.  So, let’s use a term that is unambiguous, so the limited liberal mind cannot be so easily confused...

Instances of Voter Fraud Continue to Mount, 
Further Compromising Our Elections
by Jason Snead
{ dailysignal.com } ~ Recent voter fraud cases show the growing importance of upholding election integrity... Last year, Cassandra Amber Marie Ritter was convicted of heroin distribution in Winchester, Virginia. Two weeks later, Ritter voted at a local fire department even though she knew she had lost her right to vote as a consequence of her conviction. She received a two-year suspended sentence. In Texas, Crystal Mason recently received a five-year sentence for illegally voting in the 2016 presidential election. Mason showed up at the polls to vote, only to discover her name had been removed from the rolls. This was no accident; Mason was on probation following a 60-month sentence for felony tax fraud and lost her right to vote as a result...

Left vs. right: Are both sides equally vitriolic?
by ERIK RUSH


{ wnd.com ~ Two weeks ago, a bit of a controversy erupted over a billboard on Interstate 40 in Texas that suggested liberals keep driving until they leave the state. The billboard was subsequently removed after the party who had paid for the sign asked for it to be taken down, not having anticipated how controversial it would become.

Last week, a new billboard was erected in Amarillo, Texas, by another party in response to the earlier sign. The new sign reads: “Texas is for everyone, not for bigotry. Welcome, y’all.”

It’s a nice sentiment, but it got me to thinking: I don’t necessarily see a desire to encourage liberals to leave a particular locale as bigotry at all.

I see it as prudence.

After all, excepting those who self-identify as liberals but who often demonstrate a preponderance of conservative core values simply because they’ve bought into the idea that liberals are nice and conservatives are big fat meanies, haven’t liberals pretty much established that they’re subversive, dishonorable, foul-mouthed, duplicitous swine? I can’t see why any thinking person with a healthy sense of self-interest or self-preservation would want too many dedicated, politically active liberals around them at all.

I belong to a few non-political organizations, which have many liberals amongst their membership. I take great care never to engage these folks in discussions around culture or politics due to liberals’ proclivity for summarily denying fundamental truths and for their summary acceptance of harmful, abject falsehoods. I do this because to do otherwise would only invite disharmony within these organizations.

It is worth mentioning that I’ve also found liberals to be far more likely than non-liberals to attempt to politicize affairs within such organizations if given the slightest opportunity. Further, as with anyone else, it is inescapable that liberals’ beliefs necessarily bleed over into their general deportment and the way they interact with others, whether in relationships, the workplace, or in casual settings.

Recently in this space, I addressed dummycrats-Democratic Rep. scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters’ advocacy of mob violence against officials in the administration of President Donald Trump. This was only one of many recent instances of outrageous and incendiary behavior on the part of liberals since Trump’s election.

Last week, Fox News’ Brit Hume penned a column admonishing people like Rep. scumbag/mad-Waters to refrain from such incendiary rhetoric, but added that we all need to do so as well. This is sound advice, but Hume’s piece overlooks one salient fact: “We all” aren’t the ones advocating mob violence, nor do we need anyone to inform us that such action is antisocial.

Additionally, there is simply no comparison between the sheer volume and vitriol vis-à-vis the rhetoric of the left versus that of their counterparts. When conservatives hear President Trump deliver a coarse retort following an attacker’s bombardment, they squirm a little but tend to keep quiet because they’re glad to see someone defending himself against these scum. Conversely, as far as the left is concerned, calumnies, expletives and expressed wishes for death and dismemberment are the norm; they’re encouraged, and anyone they don’t like is fair game.

Hume pointed out that one of the chief offenders of late has been President Trump himself, who “has certainly contributed heavily to the current poisonous atmosphere, speaking of his opponents in the crudest language and finding no slight too minor to merit a bruising response.”

While it’s true that President Trump does give as good as he gets with regard to scathing attacks, the truth is that the tone of political discourse became exponentially more volatile during the liar-nObama administration. While liar-nObama may not have used expletives, he was very calculated in his rhetoric and quite adept at pushing just the right buttons, as it were, of the right demographics to bring about the maximum emotional response in his target audience.

Case in point: There is simply no denying that race relations deteriorated significantly during the liar-nObama years, and that was primarily due to his use of the bully pulpit in this regard.

Speaking further to the aforementioned low character of liberals in this vein, in addition to the caustic language being proffered, there have been other, even more untoward and dangerous behaviors in which those on the left have engaged. The utterly baseless investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russian operatives in order to gain an advantage in the 2016 general election not only revealed that it was the camp of liar-Hillary Clinton and other Democrats who engaged in such collusion, but that parties in the FBI at various levels conspired to protect liar-Hillary Clinton during the investigation into her illegal email server, as well as conspiring to keep Trump from getting elected.

Following the decline in civility catalyzed by liar-nObama and his surrogates, it was the election of Donald Trump that caused the left to go completely off the rails, but nothing can excuse their marked descent into rhetorical depravity and criminality over the last couple of years. The advent of the #Walkaway movement, in which some liberals have advocated abandoning liberalism and the dummycrats-Democratic Party, certainly evidences how bad affairs have become.

All things considered, while some might argue that rank-and-file voting liberals ought not be ostracized, marginalized, or politely asked to leave the state of Texas, until they start widely condemning leftist orthodoxy or change their voting habits, I will continue to avoid them and advocate for their political disenfranchisement.

ALERT ALERT

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors.

NJ.com adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
