 Russia Investigation Infected by 
Hyper-Political Bias Against Pres Trump
{ rickwells.us } ~ The ongoing probe into alleged collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign was “infected by hyper-political bias against President Trump,”... Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Friday. Appearing on The Ingraham Angle, Fitton discussed FBI memos detailing the pressure of FBI agent Peter Strzok put on former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to ultimately get a warrant on Carter Page. He said that the memos are confirmation Strzok and his allies were looking for excuses to target Trump’s team: “Oh, it’s further confirmation that the Trump-Russia investigation was infected by this hyper-political bias against President Trump, where they’re looking for excuses to target his team.” Fitton further addressed Strzok’s statement on Carter Page, in which Strzok said “At the minimum, the letter provides a pretext to interview...

DOJ Attorney Lisa Page Refuses To Testify To Congress
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued the following statement after Lisa Page decided to defy the Committee’s subpoena... “It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide. She plans to blatantly defy a congressional subpoena by refusing to appear for her deposition. She has known for months that the House Judiciary Committee has sought her testimony as part of our joint investigation with the Oversight Committee into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016, and she has no excuse for her failure to appear. Lisa Page is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before our committees to answer questions as part of our investigation. “We will use all tools at our disposal to obtain her testimony. Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by top officials at the Justice Department and FBI, and it is imperative Congress conduct vigorous oversight to ensure that never happens again.” When are you going to start charging these people who fail to testify?

by Edmund DeMarche
{ foxnews.com } ~ President Trump on Wednesday had a testy exchange with the head of NATO... when he asked about energy agreements between Russia and several European countries. Trump repeatedly pressed Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's secretary general, on why the U.S. continued to pay money to the military alliance while countries continue to purchase energy from Moscow. “We are stronger together,” Stoltenberg insisted, but acknowledged that there can be differences among allies. Still, Trump persisted. “But how can you be together when you’re getting energy from the group you want protection from?” the president asked...   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/07/11/trump-nato-head-have-tes...

Tedra Cobb Tells Supporters She Wants 
‘Assault Rifle’ Ban But ‘Cannot Say That’ in Public 
by Stephen Gutowski
{ freebeacon.com } ~ Tedra Cobb, the dummycrats-Democratic candidate in New York's 21st Congressional District... told a group of teenage supporters that she supports a ban on certain firearms but won't say so publicly for fear of losing her election. "When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?' And I said they should be banned," Cobb can be heard saying in the video recorded by one of the attendees. "And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that." When the woman pushed back on Cobb keeping quiet on how she feels about banning certain firearms, Cobb said coming out in favor of a gun ban would lead to her losing her bid against Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik...

A #WalkAway Movement Whose Time Has Come  

by Arnold Ahlert:  “I didn’t leave the dummycrats-Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me."—Ronald Reagan, 1962

             "What do these people stand for? What is their platform? All I can figure out so far is ‘We hate Trump’ and ‘We love illegal immigrants.’"—openly gay Brandon Straka, founder of the #WalkAway campaign, 2018
               Of all the things exposed by the 2016 election — the rank corruption at the highest levels of national law enforcement, the astounding arrogance of judicial branch members who substitute political ideology for law, and the profound devolution of a mainstream media into a de facto Ministry of Truth whose "truth” is the advancement of the progressive agenda — none was more cathartic than the exposure of the “tolerant” American Left as the nation’s foremost promulgators of hate and hysteria.
               For decades, these self-appointed doyens of “enlightened” thinking have tasked themselves with fundamentally transforming a fundamentally flawed America into a socialist utopia run by globalist elites answerable to no one but themselves. Globalist elites whose commitment to “social justice” amounted to remaining wholly immune to the damage they inflicted on “deplorable” Americans while enriching themselves.
               On Nov. 8, 2016, their self-serving construct was conspicuously rejected.
               Ever since, the wisdom of an electorate rejecting that odious status quo — the one former president Barack liar-nObama assured us would be his “third term” with liar-Hillary Clinton in charge — has been completely validated. All one would have to do to realize the level of bankruptcy that attends progressive ideology is substitute Barack liar-nObama’s name for Donald Trump’s. And imagine the Left’s reaction if a comedian  stated liar-nObama’s mouth is Putin’s c—k holster, a high school mural depicted liar-nObama’s severed head, a Hollywood celebrity tweeted  someone should “rip” Malia or Sasha from Michelle liar-nObama’s arms and put one or the other in a cage full of pedophiles, or a Republican House representative  urged   conservatives to “push back” and “create a crowd” so that liar-nObama administration officials understood “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!
               Just for starters. Brandon Straka has had enough. “The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement,” his campaign’s Facebook page states. “It is a video campaign movement, dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the dummycrats-Democratic Party has become. … Some here have wanted to leave for some time, but have feared the consequences they might suffer from friends or family if they walk away.”
               Attorney Alan Dershowitz revealed some of those consequences, explaining that his “friends” on Martha’s Vineyard have shunned him for defending Trump’s constitutional rights. He cites one of them as saying that if he appeared at one of her parties she’d “stab him through the heart.
               MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough defends such puerile close-mindedness. “As my grandmother would say, Alan, when you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas,” Scarborough sniffed. “And so he can’t try to undermine Robert Mueller … and then be shocked that he’s not allowed to go to the finest spots on Martha’s Vineyard.
               Scarborough’s contempt is shared by Washington Post columnist Abby Ohlheiser, who dismisses the #WalkAway campaign as a conservative-orchestrated mirage. “As the Internet fragments, our understanding of what it means to go ‘viral’ has become complicated, and increasingly meaningless. A hashtag claiming to capture a movement among liberals has gone viral, in this case, almost exclusively on the right-wing Internet, as a reinforcement of one of its binding ideas,” she writes. “There’s little actual evidence to suggest that #WalkAway represents a mass conversion of millions — or even thousands — of dummycrats- Democrats to the Trump Train since Straka’s video.
               As columnist David Catron explains, Ohlheiser misses the point, especially with regard to black Americans who have been one of the dummycrats-Democrat Party’s most reliable voting blocs — and thus taken for granted. “A ‘Great Awakening’ isn’t required,” he writes. “All that is needed is about 5 percent more African-Americans to vote Republican and another 5 to 10 percent to simply stay home. … That means, to quote Reagan, ‘We win, they lose.’”
               Unfortunately for dummycrats-Democrats, it’s not just black Americans Straka is recruiting. “If you are a person of color, an LGBT person, a woman or an American immigrant, the dummycrats-Democratic Party wants you to know you are a victim,” Straka says in a video he posted May 26. “This is perhaps the dummycrats-Democratic Party’s greatest, and most insidious, lie.”
               Lie? Political platform is more like it. Without the continued cultivation of victimization that fuels big-government dependency, dummycrats-Democrats are in serious trouble. Straka notes what their concern has engendered. “The dummycrats-Democratic Party that I once loved has joined forces with the extremist left.
               Don’t take his word for it. DNC Chairman Tom Perez has dubbed socialist dummycrats-Democrat commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “the future of our party” following her defeat of incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th Congressional District primary.
               commie-Ocasio-Cortez makes it clear what that future portends: “free” Medicare for all, the abolishment of ICE, a federal government-imposed jobs guarantee, housing as a “human right,” mobilization against climate change, gun control and higher education “for everyone.” And like many of her fellow dummycrats- Democrats, she supports impeaching Donald Trump.
               Moreover, like commie-Bernie Sanders, who owns three homes and earned over a million dollars in 2016, commie-Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist, working class “girl from the Bronx” bona fides are conspicuously lacking. While she was born in the Bronx, her family moved to Yorktown Heights, a wealthy Westchester County suburban town, when she was five — a detail her biography conspicuously omitted until she subsequently “tweaked” it.
               Maybe that’s because Westchester is the eighth-richest county in the nation.
               “Do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy and extremism are beginning to take a toll. “For far too long, the left has controlled the narrative in this country in news and media while the ‘silent majority’ on the right have done what they always do — remained silent,” the #WalkAway Facebook page continues. “The left has been allowed for so long to reinforce the narrative that everybody on the right is a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, etc. But the left has become so extreme, it’s now time to fight back.”
               Now? Conservatives have been fighting for quite some time. Fighting against Hollywood, academia, the media and the dummycrats-Democrat Party, along with the faction of GOPers who spinelessly acquiesce to the progressive agenda. Fighting against #NeverTrump blowhards like backstabber-Bill Kristol, George Will, Max Boot, Bret Stephens and others whose “principles” would have abided undiscovered Deep State machinations, a leftist Supreme Court, the continued hollowing out of Heartland America, and the open-borders/amnesty agenda a liar-Clinton presidency would have surely inflicted on the nation. The same “principles” that have them rooting for dummycrats-Democrats to prevail in November.
               Straka has other ideas. “This is a movement of patriots of all walks of life — men, women, black, brown, white, straight, LGBTQ, religious, non-believers, who share something very important in common… WE ARE AMERICAN and we will not surrender our country!” Amen to that.

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.
