Top FBI Lawyer Told Congress
About Rosenstein Allegations,Interaction With Reporter
by Chuck Ross
{dailycaller.com} ~ Former FBI General Counsel James Baker told Congress in “explosive” testimony about his interactions with a Mother Jones reporter... just after the 2016 election as well as a conversation he had last year with then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe regarding Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Baker recently told lawmakers that David Corn, a reporter at the liberal Mother Jones, provided him a copy of the Steele dossier a day after President Donald Trump’s election win, sources familiar with Baker’s testimony told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Baker, who resigned from office in May, also told lawmakers that McCabe and his general counsel, Lisa Page, told him in May 2017 that Rosenstein made remarks about wearing a wire during meetings with Trump. Baker’s testimony seems to bolster a Sept. 21 report from The New York Times that cited memos McCabe wrote just after a meeting with Rosenstein in May 2017, shortly after scumbag-James Comey was fired as FBI director. The Justice Department has disputed the story, saying that Rosenstein was making a joke in response to a request from McCabe to investigate Trump over his firing of scumbag-Comey. The report touched off intense speculation about Rosenstein’s job status. He reportedly offered to resign following the report, but the White House rejected the proposal...  https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/09/fbi-lawyer-congress-rosenstein/

Trump, sitting alongside Haley in the Oval Office, told reporters she plans to leave at the end of the year and wanted to “take a break” from public service. The president said Haley informed him of her intentions six months ago.

Iranian Parliament Approves Terror
Finance Bill with Loopholes for Hamas and Hezbollah
by Saeed Ghasseminejad and Toby Dershowitz
{defenddemocracy.org} ~ The Iranian parliament passed a bill this week that authorizes the country to join the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism (CFT)... one of several prerequisites for Iran’s removal from the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) blacklist of states that engage in systemic money laundering and terror finance. FATF will be reviewing Iran's case next week. Inclusion on the blacklist, formally known as the “public statement,” results in intense financial pressure on the designated country and requires other countries to apply enhanced due diligence when considering financial transactions with it. FATF temporarily  suspended these countermeasures on Iran, pending its passage of reforms that would prevent future violations. In Iran’s parliament, or majles, opponents of the CFT accession bill feared it would prevent Iran from funding Hezbollah and Hamas, to which it provides an estimated $700 million and $100 million per year, respectively. Both opponents of the bill and foreign media reports failed to recognize that the bill carves out exemptions for the specific purpose of facilitating funds to support Hamas, Hezbollah, and other groups designated abroad as terrorist organizations. To that end, the bill excludes “struggles against colonial dominance and foreign occupation” from its definition of terrorism. The bill even acknowledges it will not fully comply with clause 1.b in Article 2 of the CFT, which prohibits any act “intended to cause death or serious bodily injury to a civilian, or to any other person not taking an active part in the hostilities in a situation of armed conflict.” The bill says Iran’s commitment to Article 2 “is limited” even if other parties are fully committed to it. FATF says Iran must criminalize terror financing, “including by removing the exemption for designated groups ‘attempting to end foreign occupation, colonialism and racism.’”...

Suspect arrested in murder of Bulgarian
journalist Viktoria Marinova, report says
by Ryan Gaydos  
{foxnews.com} ~ An arrest was made in the murder of Bulgarian television reporter Viktoria Marinova who had been reporting on alleged corruption linked to European Union funds... Bulgarian national radio reported Tuesday. Marinova, 30, was found dead in a park in Ruse, a town in the far north, along the border of Romania, according to Reuters. An unnamed suspect, only described as a “Romanian citizen with a passport from Moldova,” had been arrested in Marinova’s murder, according to the national radio report. Marinova had worked at the Ruse-based TV station TVN as a reporter. She had hosted a recently-launched program, interviewing investigative journalists about alleged corruption between businessman and politicians involving EU funds. Bulgarian prosecutors announced earlier they opened an investigation into the suspected misuse of European Union funds, following Marinova’s murder. The interior ministry said prosecutors were examining the GP Group, the company alleged to have misused EU money, and froze $16 million of its assets.  Bulgarian interior minister Mladen Marinov initially denied that Marinova’s murder was linked to her reporting, and said there was no evidence she had been threatened. A reporter from TVN told AFP, “We are in shock. In no way, under any form, never have we received any threats – aimed at her or the television.”...

Trump Sets the Record Straight on Justice Kavanaugh
by Thomas Gallatin:  Often official government ceremonies can feel rote and uninteresting due to their formality. However, Monday’s official swearing-in ceremony for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was palpably different. After the nation experienced one of the most contentious political battles surrounding the confirmation process of a SCOTUS nominee, the air was still thick with tension. And President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly demonstrated that he will not be bullied into silence, was not about to let the moment pass without setting the record straight.

             In introducing the newest justice, Trump started by thanking all the Supreme Court justices for their service. He specifically recognized retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, stating, “Justice Kennedy, America owes you a profound debt of gratitude for a lifetime of noble service to our nation. And I want to thank you very much.
               After thanking several others, including Antonin Scalia’s widow Maureen and White House Counsel Don McGahn, and then welcoming Kavanaugh’s family, Trump shifted to deliberately address the elephant in the room — the dummycrats-Democrat-orchestrated hit-jobagainst Kavanaugh. Trump declared:
               I would like to begin tonight’s proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude. On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.
               Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process.
]               In our country, a man or woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. And with that, I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.
               Margaret and Liza, your father is a great man. He is a man of decency, character, kindness, and courage who has devoted his life to serving his fellow citizens. And now from the bench of our nation’s highest court, your father will defend the eternal rights and freedoms of all Americans.
               Trump also acknowledged the Republican senators who worked to confirm Kavanaugh, specifically highlighting the leadership of Mitch McConnell (KY), Chuck Grassley (IA) and all the Republicans of the Judiciary Committee, as well as Susan Collins (R-ME) “for her brave and eloquent speech.
               After taking the Judicial Oath, Kavanaugh spoke of his gratitude for all those who have influenced and impacted him throughout his life. Near the end of his comments, he acknowledged that “the Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional,” but he noted that “although the Senate confirmation process tested me, as it has tested others, it did not change me.” He pledged, “My approach to judging remains the same. A good judge must be an umpire, a neutral and impartial decider who favors no litigant or policy. A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.” He then concluded, “As a Justice on the Supreme Court, I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American Rule of Law.”

ALERT ALERT

States Propose Orwellian Law Mandating State Home Invasion On Home-School Families

(TeaParty.org) – Lawmakers in some US states have proposed legislation that would require home visits for families with homeschooled children, posing a terrifying threat to parental authority and freedom in general.

Iowa HF 272 requires homeschool families who do not report to their school district in conducting their home education to submit to “health and safety visits” quarterly by “the board of directors of a school district.”

If parents decline, the proposed law says, “the juvenile court or district court upon a showing of probable cause may authorize the person making the home visit to enter the home and interview or observe the child.”

The law doesn’t explain why a school district would conduct “health and safety visits,” nor is “probable cause” defined.

But the party performing the visit on behalf of the school district would be a mandatory reporter, and the district can collaborate on the mandated home visits with the Department of Human Services, which in turn can collaborate with the state’s Department of Education.

A similar bill calling for a home investigation of homeschool families was recently introduced in Illinois. The visits there would be performed by the Child Protective Service Unit of the Department of Children and Family Services.

Iowa state Rep. Mary Mascher, a Democrat, introduced the bill, which is one of two introduced thus far during this legislative session requiring home visits for homeschool families.

Public schools do not exist to determine the “health and safety” of a child, they exist to provide children with an education.

In fact, plenty of public schools pose serious risks to the “health and safety” of children, whether that be increased risk to seasonal and contagious illness or the incidents of violent crime that plague the nation’s inner city schools.

This law is eerily reminiscent of the socialist systems many lawmakers in Washington would like to mimic here at home. There is nothing more authoritative than the state forcing their way into the home.

Homeschooling is a way a rapidly growing number of parents have found to combat the state-sponsored ideological indoctrination taking place in the public school system, and these authoritarians can’t stand that parents are finding a way to fight back and take their children’s educations, and minds.
