Tillerson Is Out 
by Political Editors:  It has been rumored numerous  times over the last nine months or so, but now those rumors are fact. President Donald Trump has removed Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state. It was no secret that Trump and Tillerson did not see eye-to-eye on several issue, but a spokesman for Tillerson said that he was not expecting to be let go and “had every intention of staying.” In fact, he reportedly found out from Trump’s tweet and is “unaware of the reason” for his firing. We believe there are two keys: North Korea and Iran.

            Trump has tapped current CIA Director Mike Pompeo to step in as head of the State Department, and he nominated current CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel to replace Pompeo. In his announcement, Trump noted Pompeo’s impressive record of service in both the military and Congress, and he also highlighted the fact that Haspel “will be the CIA’s first-ever female director, a historic milestone.” Trump then thanked Tillerson for his service and wished him and his family well. And so ends the somewhat rocky term for Tillerson at the State Department — a term that was still light years ahead of that of either liar-Hillary Clinton or John hanoi-Kerry.

GOP Poised for Big Senate Win
by Dick Morris
{ } ~ Quietly, out of sight of those who follow the national media, Republicans are gaining in five key Senate races for seats now held by Democrats... in states Donald Trump carried. In West Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, Montana and North Dakota, Democrat incumbents are behind either a “generic” Republican candidate or the actual likely GOP nominee. Each of these states has a strong Republican bent and, in some, the Democrat incumbent won almost by accident six years ago. In each state, the Democrat incumbent was elected claiming to be above party and pledging to overcome the partisan gridlock in Washington. Every one of them promptly went to the Senate and voted the party line against the Trump tax cuts. This vote, more than any other, has come to epitomize how fraudulent their declarations of independence are... 
Mueller Almost Done With Trump Probe, 
But Could Hold Off On Charges 
by Ann
{ } ~ FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller is nearly done with his obstruction probe of Donald Trump... but there’s a very sneaky reason he could hold off on bringing any charges against the President. In short, it’s because he wants more people to talk.  As reported by Bloomberg Politics, Mueller could set the obstruction case aside in order to finish investigating alleged Russian collusion and the hacking of Democrats. If Mueller were to bring obstruction charges early, it could encourage witnesses to be “less cooperative” in other parts of the probe. Three key witnesses Mueller hopes to interview include Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump. For the President’s part, on Sunday Trump spokesperson Raj Shah told ABC News that Trump “intends to” meet with Mueller for an interview under oath...
Kudlow is front-runner for Cohn's job: CNBC
{ } ~ Larry Kudlow is the leading candidate to replace Gary Cohn as President Trump’s top economic adviser... CNBC's Jim Cramer reported Monday. Cramer, who has worked with Kudlow at the network on the show “Kudlow and Cramer,” reported that Kudlow has not been formally offered the job, but is the leading choice among the president and some of his advisers. Kudlow declined to comment to CNBC, where he works as a senior contributor... 
Stay Out of DARK ALLIES Where mad-MAXINE
WATERS Lurks – Calif AG Warns TRUMP 
{ } ~ California’s scofflaw open borders Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, joined Andrea Mitchell for an interview... in which he was urged to take a parting shot at President Trump in defense of fellow Californian, mad-Maxine Waters. President Trump had recently described mad-Waters as being a low IQ individual, something that nobody has yet presented any type of documentation to prove otherwise. mad-Waters has her bachelor’s degree in sociology. It’s not rocket science but it does come in handy when you need some initials after your name and plan a career redistributing other people’s wealth.  Becerra knows that President Trump was in Pennsylvania making a speech for a House candidate there but, being the lying Democrat that he is, indicated that he did so from 2,000 miles away “because he is probably too afraid to say it to her face.”...

by Arnold Ahlert:  “Trump should continue to make American producers more competitive in global markets through tax, regulatory, energy, and other pro-America policy changes that bring jobs and capital back to the United States. … Steel and aluminum import tariffs will work decisively against this goal.” —from a column by Larry Kudlow, Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore

            To tariff or not to tariff, that is the question. Or is it? Maybe the real question is, what about Lisdoonvarna? Despite nine out of 10 people in this Irish town of 300 residents voting against it, the Irish government signed a contract with a local hotel to provide residences to “asylum seekers” and “refugees” that will increase the town’s population by more than a third.
            Likely, this is just the beginning of Ireland’s commitment to a plan approved in 2015 by EU interior ministers, aimed at distributing at least 120,000 “migrants” among EU member states — utterly irrespective of whether those countries want them or not. Ireland’s geographic isolation relative to the rest of the EU had spared it — until now.
            It gets worse. Two weeks ago, it was revealed the Irish government has been paying “journalists” to promote Project Ireland 2040, a plan to boost Ireland’s 4.7 million population by another million — courtesy of mass migration. In other words, a staggering 21% of Ireland’s population will be comprised of migrants within 22 years.
            Last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel finally admitted that “no-go zones” exist in Germany. She should know. Merkel won Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2015, largely for her open-borders stance that allowed more than one million “asylum seekers” and “refugees” into Germany. Now she’s decided it’s time to get tough on crime.
            Sweden is another nation looking to crack down on crime, but it too has already surrendered certain areas to immigrant gangs, and police officers themselves have been subjected to attacks — including one where a hand grenade was tossed at a police station. In fact, hand grenades have become a “trend” in gang attacks in Sweden.
            In the last 18 years France’s Jewish population has declined from 555,000 to 500,000. Why? “There’s no Jewish future there,” asserts Steve Eisenberg, co-founder of the Jewish International Connection of New York. “You can’t walk in Paris wearing a yarmulke. You’re taking your life in your hands.
            In Italy’s March 4 election, a majority of voters opted for anti-immigrant, populist and stridently anti-European Union parties over the status quo. As columnist Angelo Codevilla put it, this is what happens “when voters are ruled by officials and associated corporate types who despise them.”
            What does any of the above have to do with collective handwringing over tariffs and the departure of Donald Trump’s economic adviser Gary Cohn? Because it’s collective handwringing by America’s very own “officials and associated corporate types” who despise us. “The prevailing wisdom on Wall Street and in Washington was that the departure of someone like Gary Cohn would be immediately catastrophic for the markets and the US economy,” asserts Charles Gasparino.
            Make that the prevailing globalist wisdom on Wall Street and in Washington.
            And who’s kidding whom with regard to wisdom? Wall Street elitists ran the entire global economy into a ditch in 2008, and Washington elitists bailed them out to the tune of $700 billion, courtesy of the taxpayer-funded Troubled Asset Relief Program. Moreover, the Federal Reserve gave elitists additional cushioning, courtesy of Quantitative Easing (QE), and a Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP) that ultimately precipitated a financial bonanza for the top 1%.
            ZIRP also precipitated a calamity for Main Street America, forced to endure a decade where anything remotely resembling safe-haven savings vehicles, protecting a lifetime’s worth of earnings, were eviscerated.
            And now, many of these same elitists are distraught because the current president doesn’t buy into their particular brand of “wisdom?
            Note that Mssrs. Kudlow, Laffer and Moore spoke of bringing jobs and capital back to the United States. What they didn’t speak to is why they left in the first place. For the globalist elites, there are no countries, only markets. There are no citizens, only workers and consumers. The preservation of a nation’s customs, culture, traditions, borders and language? Anachronistic concepts that must give way to one-world governance run by “enlightened” technocrats.
            Technocrats who also embrace open borders and mass immigration precisely because it undercuts the preservation of national identity.
            Furthermore, the globalist enterprise is strictly bottom line — if specific areas in “flyover America” must take the hit for the generalized  benefit of global profits, so be it. In short, global well-being trumps heartland catastrophe. Yet as columnist Michael Goodwin reminds us, those most critical of Trump’s approach “offer no solutions for the working class Americans left behind by the bipartisan push for globalization.
            Globalization with disastrous possibilities beyond economics and immigration. “We today confront a Chinese Communist dictatorship and superpower that seeks to displace America as first power on earth and to drive the U.S. military back across the Pacific,” writes columnist Pat Buchanan. By the way, he notes, China’s “$375 billion trade surplus with us in 2017 far exceeded the entire Chinese defense budget.”
            Are Americans content with trade policies that subsidize the Chinese quest for world domination? The same Chinese “superb at free-trade rhetoric and even more superb at highly protectionist behavior,” as Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross put it at the Davos World Economic Forum in January?
            As for tariffs, misinformation abounds. America already imposes  12,000 of them on a variety of products. Is that a lot? At the same forum, Ross challenged the assembled group of globalist elites to name a nation less protectionist than America. He got no responses.
            “For the past 30+ years, DC politicians have been selling out the U.S. economy to corporate interests, Wall Street and multinationals,” writes  ConservativeTreeHouse columnist Sundance. “President Trump is simply saying ‘no more,’ and finally putting a stop to it. They hate him. He doesn’t care.”
            He shouldn’t, because that sellout has been beyond egregious. “Global debt levels soared to a record high of $233 trillion in the third quarter of 2017,” CNBC reported in January. Global debt levels engineered by the same elitists responsible for the 2008 crash, many of whom now rail against Trump’s “ignorant” economic policies.
            Trump’s tariffs — targeted and negotiable — represent a classic shot across the globalist bow. No matter how much the elites despise Trump and his agenda, he is determined to take a jackhammer to their “prevailing wisdom” that ultimately came down to two corollaries, one spoken and one unspoken. The spoken one? Wall Street and Washington are “too big to fail.” The unspoken one? The rest of America is “too deplorable to matter.
            No longer. “MAGAnomics” will play itself out, no matter how often $1,000 bonuses are dismissed as crumbs, tax cuts are labeled  “catastrophic,” or “putting Americans first” is derided as delusional or racist.
            The real delusion has been assuming millions of Americans were content to be cogs in a globalist machine, mollified by a “new normal” that hollowed out their cities and towns — along with their lives. The hardhats who spoke at Trump’s tariff signing ceremony humanized working Americans. The same working Americans globalists would rather objectify.
            If there is a better reason why Donald Trump is president, one is hard pressed to imagine what it is.

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.


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. 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.
