Germany Outlaws Turkish Boxing Gang
by Soeren Kern
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has banned a Turkish boxing gang called "Osmanen Germania BC" ("Germania Ottomans")... on the grounds that it poses a serious threat to public order. The gang, most of whose members are Turkish Germans, is said to be involved in organized criminal activity in all of Germany's 16 federal states. It is also believed to have close ties to the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The German ban comes less than a day after Buzzfeed, an American internet media company, falsely accused Gatestone Institute of fabricating the existence of such gangs in Germany. Seehofer said the gang "poses a serious threat to individual legal interests and for the general public."...   https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12692/germany-turkish-boxing-gang

Israel launches Patriot missile against Syrian drone
by ANNA AHRONHEIM
{ jpost.com } ~ A Patriot missile intercepted a drone which infiltrated into northern Israel on Wednesday... with some parts of the UAV falling in the Sea of Galilee. According to IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis the Syrian reconnaissance drone, which is not believed to have been armed, flew some 10 kilometers into Israeli territory and fell south of the Kinneret after it was intercepted. “The aerial defense systems identified the threat and tracked it,” read a IDF Spokesperson’s Unit statement, which added that “the IDF will not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt its civilians.” Manelis stated that while it is still unclear whether the drone entered Israel intentionally or not, the drone was identified and tracked before it flew into the buffer zone by Israel. Two attack helicopters and four fighter jets were scrambled as options to intercept it but due to operational considerations a patriot missile was chosen to intercept it...

Did Mayor De Blasio Cross the Border Illegally? 
by Cortney O'Brien
{ townhall.com } ~ When New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio visited El Paso, Texas last month... he crossed a part of the U.S.-Mexico border on foot. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is now alleging that he did so illegally. The Associated Press obtained a letter from Aaron Hull, the chief patrol agent for the Border Patrol’s El Paso Sector, to New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill  detailing how De Blasio potentially violated immigration law. De Blasio went to a holding facility for immigrant children but was denied entry. He then went to Mexico and crossed into the U.S. to get a view of the facility. The New York Police Department runs de Blasio’s security detail.  According to the letter, a uniformed Border Patrol agent noticed a group on the Rio Grande River flood plain south of the Tornillo, Texas, Port of Entry, taking photos of the holding facility. The agent asked if anyone from Border Patrol or public affairs was there to authorize their presence. A New York Police Department inspector said no, according to the letter, and when the agent asked the group how they arrived, they pointed to Mexico. The agent told them they’d crossed the border illegally and asked them to remain there while he got a supervisor and took them to an official crossing for an inspection per federal law, according to the letter. But the group disregarded the order and drove back to Mexico, according to the letter...Lock him up!

Wrecking NATO
by Shoshana Bryen

{ americanthinker.com } ~ The Washington Post headline blared, "Trump is bent on wrecking NATO. Prepare for catastrophe."... The Post fears that President Trump's diplomacy will benefit Vladimir Putin to the detriment of American and European interests. European Council president Donald Tusk sniped, "Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don't have that many." The NATO countries are, indeed, among America's closest allies, but some of them appear more interested in oil, natural gas, and trade with Iran than in the Fulda Gap. Some of our "closest allies" have been working overtime to undermine America. If Mr. Trump is irritated with them, there is a reason. Iran is preparing to take $300 million in cash out of German banks to get ahead of impending U.S. banking sanctions. While American intelligence officials are concerned that the money will finance terrorism, the German government says it has "no evidence" to that effect. According to the German newspaper Bild, "Iran ... says that they need the money 'to pass it on to Iranian individuals who, when travelling abroad, are dependent on euros in cash due to their lack of access to accepted credit cards.'"  The German government appears to think that one million Iranian tourists might need $300 each – or perhaps 300 tourists might need $1 million each... .

Trump's SCOTUS Nomination Provides Little Resistance Ammo

by Thomas Gallatin:  President Donald Trump’s choice of Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy quickly earned high praise from Republicans who laud his conservative judicial record on the DC Circuit Court while at the same time presented dummycrats-Democrats with little substantive material to raise against his confirmation. In introducing Kavanaugh, Trump  noted  the importance of choosing a justice who was committed to upholding the Constitution, stating, “In keeping with President Reagan’s legacy, I do not ask about a nominee’s personal opinions. What matters is not a judge’s political views, but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the Constitution require. I am pleased to say that I have found, without doubt, such a person.”

             While Kavanaugh was not the flashiest pick as some of the others potential nominees may have been, he was by far the safest choice in light of the dummycrats-Democrats’ determined resistance. Former President George W. Bush, who originally tabbed Kavanaugh for the DC Circuit Court back in 2003, offered his full-throated support, stating that Trump had made an “outstanding decision” and that Kavanaugh was a “brilliant jurist” who “will make a superb Justice of the Supreme Court of the United State.” And maybe more importantly, Sen. rino-Susan Collins (R-ME), who is one of two moderate Republicans that dummycrats-Democrats have targeted to swing their way, struck a positive note, stating, “Judge Kavanaugh has impressive credentials and extensive experience.”
               However, the reality is that no matter who Trump chose, dummycrats-Democrats and their cohorts in the mainstream media were committed to engaging the #Resistance, doing everything in their power to prevent Trump from replacing Kennedy — famously or infamously known for being the Court’s swing vote — with a constitutionally committed conservative justice. Fordummycrats- Democrats, it is a hill worth dying on. In fact, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) called the issue a “life-and-death” scenario and even suggested thatdummycrats-Democrat senators up for reelection in red states need to be willing to lose in an effort to prevent confirmation.
               scumbag-Durbin further opined, “They [dummycrats- Democrats] understand it’s an historic decision. It’s about more than the next election. It’s about what future the United States of America is going to chart.” scumbag-Durban’s comments were clearly intended for those three dummycrats-Democrats up for reelection in states that Trump won. Those dummycrats- Democrats, who previously crossed the aisle to vote in favor of Justice Neil Gorsuch last time — West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp and Indiana’s Joe Donnelly — will now be faced with even greater party pressure this time to toe the line.
               The dummycrats-Democrats’ strategy in opposing Kavanaugh will be two-fold. First will be an attempt to make the issue of liar-nObamaCare central by raising questions as to whether Kavanaugh would continue to support it as constitutional. Kavanaugh’s past remarks on liar-nObamaCare are something dummycrats-Democrats will undoubtedly target. Secondly, dummycrats-Democrats will attack his Roman Catholic faith in order to call into question his stance on abortion. As far as Kavanaugh’s judicial record, dummycrats-Democrats have little ammunition to challenge him on, therefore they will seek to attack his personal beliefs and not his commitment to upholding the Constitution. Ultimately, the dummycrats-Democrat Party’s endgame is to convince those dummycrats-Democrats in tight election races not to break ranks while at the same time convincing one or two moderate Republicans to do just that.
               One thing is becoming increasingly obvious, as evidenced by House Minority Leader Nancy Pulosi’s (D-CA) recent stratospheric hyperbole: “Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election. We have to win. We have to win.” dummycrats- Democrats are entering panic mode.

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
