Nunes blows up, threatens contempt after FBI stonewalls House on Russia investigator
demoted for anti-Trump bias
by Byron York
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued an angry demand to the FBI and Department of Justice to explain... why they kept the committee in the dark over the reason Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked a key supervising FBI agent off the Trump-Russia investigation. Stories in both the Washington Post and New York Times on Saturday reported that Peter Strzok, who played a key role in the original FBI investigation into the Trump-Russia matter, and then a key role in Mueller's investigation, and who earlier had played an equally critical role in the FBI's liar-Hillary Clinton email investigation, was reassigned out of the Mueller office because of anti-Trump texts he exchanged with a top FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was having an extramarital affair. Strzok was transferred to the FBI's human resources office — an obvious demotion -- in July. The Post reported that Strzok and Page exchanged text messages that "expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor liar-Clinton."..  http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/byron-york-nunes-blows-up-threate...

Palestinians: More Missed Opportunities
by Bassam Tawil
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas continues to mouth his "desire" to achieve peace with Israel on the basis of a two-state solution... Abbas's ruling Fatah faction and PLO partners, however, evidently have a different agenda: to wage war on Israel until the "liberation of all of Palestine." In a speech delivered on his behalf by Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian envoy to the United Nations, on November 30, Abbas repeated his commitment to a two-state solution based on international law and the 1967 "borders." Abbas called on the UN "to force Israel to recognize the State of Palestine based on the 1967 borders as the basis for a two-state solution, and to agree on a demarcation of borders in line with the resolutions of the international community."...   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11477/palestinians-missed-opport...

Trump shrinks Utah monuments 
created by liar-nObama, liar-Clinton
by  Barnini Chakraborty
{foxnews.com} ~ Capping months of speculation, President Trump on Monday signed a pair of executive orders to significantly shrink two of Utah’s national monuments... Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase-Escalante – that were created by his Democratic predecessors. The controversial move was pitched by Trump as a win for states' rights and follows an April review conducted by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on the boundaries of large national monuments. The review initially looked at more than two dozen sites designated by presidential decree since the 1990s. Trump’s presidential proclamations cut Bears Ears by 85 percent and Grand Staircase-Escalante in half. The action is also likely to trigger a legal battle that could alter the government’s approach to conservation...   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/04/trump-shrinks-utah-monum...

Arab State Will Likely Cave 
if US Declares Jerusalem Israel's Capital
by BEN LYNFIELD
{jpost.com} ~ If the Palestinians are counting on a strong response from Arab states if the Trump administration recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital... they are likely to be disappointed. Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyadh Malki called Sunday for an emergency meeting of the Arab League amid US media reports that US President Donald Trump is going to deliver a speech on Wednesday in which he will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. But the bitter reality for the Palestinians is that key Arab countries – Saudi Arabia, Egypt and even Jordan with its Palestinian majority and role as custodian of Jerusalem holy sites – are simply too dependent on US goodwill to get into a real row with the Trump administration. This is a case where each of their national interests trumps Arab solidarity...  http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Arab-states-will-likely-...

Flynn's Casr Proves it's Time to Fire Mueller
by Daniel Greenfield
{frontpagemag.com} ~ Petraeus, liar-nObama’s CIA Director, lied to FBI agents about passing classified materials to his mistress... Despite being caught in the lie on a recording, he was never charged for it, as Flynn was. Instead he only pleaded guilty to mishandling classified information and received a slap on the wrist. While Justice Department personnel had wanted to hold Petraeus accountable, the final decision was made by Attorney General Holder and FBI Director Comey. Lawyers for Petraeus insisted that he couldn’t be charged with lying to the FBI because DOJ guidelines recommend not charging “in situations in which a suspect, during an investigation, merely denies guilt in response to questioning by the government.” Petraeus admitted making false statements, but was never charged over them. That’s what makes Flynn’s case so striking. General Petraeus lied about committing a crime. His mishandling of classified information was a serious issue. And yet he was never charged for it... http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/268596/flynns-case-proves-its-time-...

Leftwing Evangelicals: An Oxymoron?
by Susan Stamper Brown
{townhall.com} ~ Hypocrite –  hip-uh-krit “a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc.  that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.”

Donald Trump has been president for a year, yet my social media newsfeed and email inbox still overflow with stupefied leftwing evangelicals who hate Trump literally and loathe the conservative Christians that voted for him.

So then, where was the outrage from the same better-than-thou Chardonnay-swirling leftwing evangelical crowd when Christians voted for liar-nObama?

It’s obvious that their condemnation has less to do with evangelicalism or Christianity and more to do with their political leanings.

Otherwise, when liar-nObama was in office, they would have expressed a little of that righteous indignation they currently can’t control when liar-nObama’s policies harmed Christian bakers and nearly sent the Little Sisters of the Poor to the poor house.

If this were about Christian values, they would have joined a “resistance” movement when liar-nObama’s definition of marriage “evolved,” and would have occupied the White House lawn when his administration told boldfaced lies about the slain in Benghazi.

They didn’t hesitate to support a president who was “pro-choice” on third-trimester abortions, but they have zero grace for our current president -- who has already fulfilled promises on key conservative issues like judicial nominations, abortion and religious freedom.

It’s sad to say and quite telling, but Trump’s political positions are more Christian than theirs.

During liar-nObama’s years, there was no condemnation…no resistance…no anger because leftwing evangelicals were more committed to liar-nObama and his leftist policies than they were to Christ.

It doesn’t help that so many evangelical churches today are led by leftist clergy garbed in a cloak of religiosity like one of liar-nObama’s former spiritual advisors, Reverend Jim Wallis, the editor and founder of Sojourners magazine.

In October, Wallis wrote a scathing article titled “The Religious Right Will Rise and Fall with Donald Trump,” condemning evangelical conservatives who support Trump. He wrote, “Trump is the natural conclusion to how the religious right movement began, and what it has become. When it comes to this movement, the operative word is not ‘religious’ or even ‘Christian’, but ‘right.’ And for the vast majority of ‘values voters’ who are white Christians, the operative word is not ‘Christian’ but ‘white.’ ”

Isn’t that swell? Especially coming from a guy whose organization received funding from none other than George Soros’s Open Society Institute, an organization known for financing groups that support atheism, abortion, and one-world government globalism. A few years ago, Jay Richards at the National Review found that Sojourners received $325,000 from Soros’s organization between 2004 and 2007 and “at least forty-nine separate foundation grants…totaling $2,159,346” from organizations like the Tides Foundation and the Wallace Global Fund, “which also supports ACORN and a cornucopia of population-control groups.” Yes, population-control groups.

Wallis was one of eight ordained ministers and four staff members from Sojourners arrested by Capitol police November 30. According to a video posted on the magazine website, the group was detained while protesting the Republican tax plan in the Senate building. They were shouting scriptures while loudly warning senators their souls were in danger if they supported the GOP’s new tax plan. One woman threatened, “Senators, we put you on notice. Your souls are in danger and this is your final warning.”

It’s good to be concerned about souls in danger, but the train jumps the track when we redefine Christianity by cherry-picking scripture and weaponizing biblical principles to make political points. In his day, Jesus had no patience for people like that. He called them “vipers…hypocrites…sons of the devil.”

If words have meaning, and indeed they do, “leftwing evangelicals” might want to drop the oxymoron and choose one label or the other. Lord knows, they can’t be both.

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
