Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo Slams CNN Reporting On CIA Asset: ‘Materially Inaccurate’
by AMBER ATHEY
{ dailycaller.com } ~ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called reports that a CIA asset in Russia was exfiltrated because of concerns about President Donald Trump’s handling of classified information “materially inaccurate” during a Tuesday press briefing... CNN’s Jim Sciutto reported earlier this week that the CIA spy, who was incredibly close with Russian president Vladimir Putin, was pulled in 2017 because intelligence officials believed Trump would compromise his identity. However, The New York Times and Washington Post both  contradicted Sciutto’s reporting, indicating that the spy was exfiltrated because the media started inquiring about his identity.  “But former intelligence officials said there was no public evidence that Mr. Trump directly endangered the source, and other current American officials insisted that media scrutiny of the agency’s sources alone was the impetus for the extraction,” the Times reported. In response to a question from the Daily Caller about whether or not the spy was compromised under the Trump administration, Pompeo called the reporting “materially inaccurate.” “Yeah, I’ve seen that reporting. The reporting is materially inaccurate,” Pompeo said, adding that he believes the reporting put national security at risk. “And you should know, as a former CIA director, I don’t talk about things like this very often — it is only the occasions that I think put people at risk, when the reporting is so egregious as to create enormous risks to the United States of America, that I even comment the way I just did.” “I won’t say anything more about it,” he asserted. “Suffice to say that the reporting there is factually wrong.”

scumbag/liar-nObamacare Caused Premiums 
to Spike. Here’s How States Are 
Lowering Them Again.
by Doug Badger
{ dailysignal.com } ~ Throughout much of last year, critics of the White House darkly warned that “Trump sabotage” of scumbag/liar-nObamacare would result in steep increases in premiums for scumbag/liar-nObamacare plans... They predicted that Congress’ repeal of the tax penalty on the uninsured, coupled with an administration rule lifting federal restrictions on short-term policies, would lead to double-digit premium increases in 2019. The good news is that none of that has happened. To the contrary, average premiums for “benchmark” plans—policies whose premiums are used in calculating premium subsidies—declined slightly (0.83%) in 2019, for the first time in the program’s history. The better news is that this overall decline was driven by seven states Alaska, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon and Wisconsin that obtained waivers to deviate from certain scumbag/liar-nObamacare mandates. Premiums in those states fell by a median of 7.48%, while premiums in the other 44 states and the District of Columbia rose by a median of 3.09% (see chart). The message for policymakers is clear: Innovation by states is the key to more affordable health insurance...  https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/09/10/obamacare-caused-premiums-to...   
Meddling: Election Interference Real and Imagined
by MARK HYMAN
{ spectator.org } ~ After World War II, the United States was promoting democracy and capitalism in the far reaches of the globe. The Soviet Union was imposing socialism everywhere it could, subjugating millions of people to misery... It was the first time in human history that the entire planet was the battleground for competing ideologies. The Cold War was begun. Throughout the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union played a cat-and-mouse game, as each attempted to influence governments state by state. One tactic was influencing democratic elections in an attempt to achieve preferred outcomes. From funding candidates and parties to planting favorable news stories, both nations meddled in the democratic elections of other states. Russia continued this behavior after the breakup of the USSR. According to a 2016 paper by postdoctoral fellow Dov Levin at UCLA, the Soviet Union and later, Russia and the United States meddled in democratic elections 117 times between 1946 and 2000. Both nations would “meddle in an election of another country in favor of a particular candidate or specific party.” The Soviet Union/Russia meddled 36 times, and the United States more than double that, at 81 times. Included were successful U.S.-engineered coups d’état in Iran and Guatemala in 1953 and 1954, respectively. Aside from the obvious coup results, meddling generally had little impact in other nations, or in the United States. Levin wrote, “Electoral interventions by major powers in U.S. presidential elections have historically been ineffective or counterproductive.” The most recent American attempt to influence another country’s democratic election was in 2015. The 2016 bipartisan Senate investigation Review of U.S. State Department Grants to OneVoice reported the scumbag/liar-nObama administration funneled money to a third-party group in Israel. The grant money was not permitted for election activity; however, the Senate found “OneVoice used the campaign infrastructure and resources built, in part, with State Department grant funds to support V15.” The V15 was a political group working to defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The November 8, 2016, presidential election results stunned most observers. Based on polling, former Secretary of State scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton was the front-runner throughout the entire campaign. She was the presumptive 45th president. In a matter of weeks, the narrative shifted from a “free and fair” election to a stolen election. Outgoing officials from the scumbag/liar-nObama administration, including former National Intelligence Chief scumbag-James Clapper, claimed without proof that Russia won the election for Trump. Often implying he had classified intelligence backing his claims, former CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan insisted that Trump colluded with Russia. Media outlets piled on, with news anchors and pundits repeating fantastical claims without evidence...

Death on Demand: 
The New Democrat Position on Abortion
by James Murphy
{ thenewamerican.com } ~ For Democrats, the days of “safe, legal and rare” on the abortion issue are in the distant past. Perhaps, their new motto should be, “whenever, wherever and however.”... In the new Democrat Party, abortion is being touted as not only an effective and even preferred method of birth control, but also as a primary component in their plan to fight climate change. Asked whether he would be “courageous enough” to address population control as it relates to climate change, commie-Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was more than ready to connect climate change to abortion/population control. “So, I think, especially in poor countries around the world, where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity to birth control to control the number of kids they have is something I very, very strongly support.” commie-Sanders also ranted about the Mexico City Agreement, a government policy that denies funding to non-American NGOs that perform abortions or offer counseling for them. Republican administrations typically follow the policy, while Democrat presidents do not. “And the Mexico City Agreement, which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that are — that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control is totally absurd,” commie-Sanders said. It seems to me that commie-Sanders is not only proposing abortion as a means of population control in “poor countries” but is suggesting that we use U.S. taxpayer funds to do so. Yet, he has the gall to call Donald Trump a racist? And just so you don’t think that Senator commie-Sanders is the only Democrat who has dived into the issue, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has gone on record declaring that abortions should be allowed until a baby takes his or her first breath. Buttigieg also absurdly claims that his position is biblical.(Its not at all Biblical) “There’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath,” Buttigieg said in an interview on The Breakfast Club radio show. “No matter what you think about the cosmic question of how life begins, most Americans can get on board with the idea of, ‘I might draw the line here, you might draw the line there.' The most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision.” With his “life begins at breath” pronouncement, Buttigieg is signaling his support for extreme new abortion laws such as the New York law signed by Governor scumbag-Andrew Cuomo in January. That law, the so-called Reproductive Health Act, allows abortion up until the moment of birth in the Empire State...

scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters Was Busted For 
Using Taxpayers’ Money To Pay Her Very Own Daughter $70,000-600,000 ICYMI
by Kirsters Baish
{ rightwingtribune.com } ~ It seems that Americans all over our country are under the impression that when a politician spends a long time in Washington, they are more susceptible to becoming extremely corrupt... As a wise man/woman once said, “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts agolustely”. The Democrats who have been in Washington the longest seem to have a way of confirming the suspicion of these skeptical Americans. While corruption isn’t limited to one race, age, creed, or party affiliation, there’s a specific group of insiders in Washington who seem to find themselves at the center of controversy constantly. Recently, that group seems to be the Congressional Black Caucus. Democrat from New York, Charlies Rangel, was found guilty of eleven ethics violations. Then there was former-Congresswoman Corrine Brown who was indicted, and plead guilty to 22 federal counts and is now facing a possible sentence of 357 years. And that’s not the end of it. Democrat Alcee Hastings from Florida, who was formerly impeached as a federal judge, was then caught misusing public funds to pay his girlfriend $2.5 million. Now CBC members are not strangers to the becoming subject of investigations. The new subject of investigation is none other than scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters. scumbag/mad-Waters has utilized Twitter to post her many annoying tirades about how much she despises President Donald Trump. She was named “one of the most corrupt members of Congress” by the non-partisan group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). She was under attack for a large list of accusations and violations. She made the CREW list in 2005, again in 2006, 2009, and has found her way back onto the list in 2017. Now the Washington Free Beacon has reported that scumbag/mad-Waters has also taken advantage of public funds for her own benefit. She used taxpayers’ money to pay her own daughter, Karen Waters. Karen Waters received more than $600,000 since the year 2006...

Good Border News but Bad Bench News
Nate Jackson:  Some good news from the border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan reports, “During the month of August, CBP apprehended or deemed inadmissible a total of 64,006 people. For July, that number was 82,055. This represents a decline of approximately 22%. Moreover, the August number reflects a decline of 56% since the May peak, which was a staggering 144,255.” Stemming the flow of illegal border crossers is a key priority for President Donald Trump’s administration, so it’s good to see numbers going in the right direction, even if August’s apprehension numbers are still higher than any other August in over a decade.

Credit for that progress goes in part to ongoing work on border barriers, albeit largely replacing old sections rather than constructing new ones. Credit also goes partly to Mexico and several Central American countries, which have at Trump’s behest made some changes in how asylum-seeking migrants are processed. More change is needed to deal humanely with the vast number of migrants. Many are indeed seeking refuge from terribly violent homes, but many more don’t actually meet any reasonable definition of asylum seeker. In any case, they are also overwhelming the system.

Meanwhile, speaking of asylum, some bad news on the border. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, an scumbag/liar-nObama judge ensconced in the sanctuary city of San Francisco, re-issued a nationwide injunction “preventing the Trump administration’s ban on asylum-seekers who travelled through a so-called safe third country before arriving in the U.S.,” reports National Review. Not only is Tigar grossly exceeding his own authority to “check” Trump, he’s giving the middle finger to a higher court. National Review adds that he “issued the ruling after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in August narrowed his previous nationwide injunction, allowing the Trump administration to implement the asylum-rule change in Texas and New Mexico but not in California or Arizona.”

The Wall Street Journal editorial board is exactly correct in arguing, “Nationwide injunctions are supposed to be an extraordinary remedy, not an automatic resort for plaintiffs who dislike a policy. The Supreme Court needs to step in and define the limits of this increasingly willful judicial intervention.”

The elected branches of government are responsible for securing this nation. Congress has entirely abdicated that responsibility when it comes to immigration (and, frankly, a host of other issues) for transparently political reasons. That leaves President Trump to do what he can. Unfortunately, he’s fighting for secure borders and reasonable Rule of Law immigration policy not only against caravans of migrants seeking to cross the border illegally but against judges who seem hell-bent on asserting their own despotic rule.   ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

Above: Rep. Ralph Abraham

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
