Trump Just Got The News
by ~ The charges could be completely dropped. President Trump just got the news, and Democrats are furious. Part of their witch-hunt is in serious jeopardy... One America News Network’s (OAN) Jack Posobiec sat down with Sidney Powell, the lawyer for Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn — and what Powell revealed on the newscast is a game-changer. “Judge Sullivan just issued a minute order in the Flynn case, canceling the hearing scheduled for November seventh because of the quote ‘comprehensive briefing of the parties,’ he feels like he doesn’t need to go forward with the hearing,” she said. Powell continued: “I’m expecting Judge Sullivan to go ahead and issue an order that, at a minimum, postpones any sentencing or cancels any sentencing … and orders the government to produce additional information.” She even thinks it’s possible that Sullivan could “hold the prosecutors in contempt of court, because they certainly are.” Powell went on to explain some of the evidence she produced in defense of Flynn to set this all in motion. “I attached a number of exhibits, including a comparison of … the FBI interview form, between February tenth and February eleventh, that shows dramatic changes to it,” she said. “We included … the raw notes of the FBI agents.”  
AP Reporters Pushed FBI to Prosecute Manafort
{ } ~ The Associated Press, founded in 1846 as a cooperative association of newspapers, has enjoyed a reputation for independence and fairness over the years... Lately, however, it has come under criticism for what some see as a left/liberal bias. Certainly, what we have just learned about its dealings with anti-Trump partisans in the Justice Department does nothing to improve our perception of the news service. We have released two sets of heavily redacted FBI documents – 28 pages and 38 pages –about an April 11, 2017, “off-the-record”  meeting set up by then-Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section Andrew Weissmann. The meeting included representatives of the DOJ, the FBI and the Associated Press in which AP reporters provided information on former Trump Campaign Director Paul Manafort, including the numeric code to Manafort’s storage locker. Two months later, in early June, Weissmann was hired to work on Robert Mueller’s special counsel operation against President Trump. Weissman then reportedly spearheaded the subsequent investigation and prosecution of Manafort. Included among the new documents are two typed write-ups of the meeting’s proceedings and handwritten notes taken during the meeting by two FBI special agents. According to a June 11, 2017, FBI write-up: The purpose of the meeting, as it was explained to SSA [supervisory special agent, redacted] was to obtain documents from the AP reporters that were related to their investigative reports on Paul Manafort.  No such documents were included in the documents released to us...   
commie-Bernie Sanders Proposes Taking 
Money From Israel, Giving it to Terrorists
By Meira Svirsky
{ } ~ Democrat presidential candidate commie-Bernie Sanders said that part of the money that America gives to its ally Israel should be diverted to Gaza... “My solution is, to Israel, if you want military aid you’re going to have to fundamentally change your relationship to the people of Gaza,” he said. “I would say that some of the $3.8 billion should go right now to humanitarian aid in Gaza.” commie-Sanders’ proposal essentially calls for the U.S. giving money to a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, Hamas, the duly elected government of Gaza. Hamas has historically used the billions of dollars of aid monies given to Gaza to build its terrorist infrastructure and line its own pockets — not for the benefit of the people it governs. Even if commie-Sanders wanted to give the money directly to the people, short of standing on the street corner himself and doling out dollars bills, the money would still go to Hamas. The terror organization has a history of taking over  aid organizations including those from the UN in Gaza. Documentation of these facts is irrefutable. Moreover, they are certainly facts of which commie-Bernie Sanders is well aware. commie-Bernie Sanders made the outrageous proposal at a J Street conference earlier this week. J Street is an organization that purports itself to be pro-Israel, however, it is known for its Far Left, anti-Zionist stances. Other Democrat presidential candidates spoke at the conference or sent messages as well: frontrunners Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren and loose lips liar-Joe Biden, also  Andrew Yang, Marianne Williamson, socialist-Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro and Amy Klobuchar. However, commie-Sanders was the only candidate essentially proposing to give money to a terror organization. commie-Sanders’ proposal was met with derision by the head of Israel’s parliament Yuli Edelstein, who said the senator should “stop talking nonsense.”...
Democrat-Only House Majority Rubber Stamps Impeachment, Ignores Bipartisan Opposition
By Tristan Justice
{  } ~ In a purely partisan vote, Democrats on Thursday rubber-stamped an ad hoc anti-Trump investigation led by Rep. scumbag-Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI)... in a move that prohibits Republicans from calling witnesses or subpoenaing evidence without prior Democrat approval. No Republicans voted for the measure, which allows Democrats to continue proceeding in secret behind closed doors, while two Democrats voted against it. The final vote total came down to 231 Democrats and one independent voting in favor and 194 Republicans with two Democrats voting opposed. liar-Pelosi announced the start of an impeachment inquiry in the House following reports of an anonymous whistleblower complaint filed against the president. The complaint, marked “credible” and “urgent” by the intelligence community inspector general but not by the Department of National Intelligence, accused Trump of conspiring with the Ukrainian president to investigate political opponents at home. Those claims have been both corroborated and contradicted by witnesses testifying behind closed doors in the in the proceedings underway in the House SCIF. The identity of the anti-Trump whistleblower who kicked off the latest round of Democratic impeachment fever has since been revealed as a former intelligence official who worked in the Trump administration as a holdover from the scumbag/liar-nObama White House. Real Clear Investigations, the first outlet to publish the identity of the whistleblower reported that the 33-year-old registered Democrat worked with a DNC opposition researcher to peddle the grand Russia collusion hoax and worked for former Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden and former CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan. The current ongoing inquiry in the House had never been voted on by the full chamber and was being run entirely in secrecy by House Intelligence Committee Chairman scumbag-Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Since the beginning, Republicans have said process is wrought with bias. Democrats have interviewed witnesses and selectively leaked their testimonies to frame the president in anticipation of public hearings as Congress moves toward the next steps of impeachment. On Wednesday, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., slammed the proceedings calling out scumbag-Schiff for directing witnesses not to answer questions from Republican lawmakers...
dinky/liar-Warren’s $52T 'Medicare-for-all' 
plan revealed: Campaign still claims no 
middle-class tax hikes needed
By Brooke Singman and Judson Berger  
{ } ~ Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren’s long-awaited "Medicare-for-all" funding plan projects the government-run health care system... would cost a staggering sum of "just under $52 trillion" over the next decade, with the campaign proposing a host of new tax increases to pay for it while still claiming the middle class would not face any additional burden. “We don’t need to raise taxes on the middle class by one penny to finance Medicare for All,” Sen. dinky/liar-Warren, D-Mass., said in her plan — a copy of which was obtained by Fox News in advance of its release Friday. In a tweet posted after this report was first published, dinky/liar-Warren reiterated that pledge while asserting she can return $11 trillion to American families. Some of dinky/liar-Warren’s rivals for the nomination are unlikely to buy that claim, after having repeatedly challenged her assertions that the middle class would not be hit by tax hikes and suggested she has not been upfront with voters. Indeed, the loose lips liar-Joe Biden campaign said the "unrealistic plan" would leave only two options: "even further increase taxes on the middle class or break her commitment to these promised benefits." "The mathematical gymnastics in this plan are all geared towards hiding a simple truth from voters: it's impossible to pay for Medicare for All without middle class tax increases," Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement. The dinky/liar-Warren campaign's detailed Medicare-for-all proposal, however, insists that the costs can be covered by a combination of existing federal and state spending on Medicare and other health care -- as well as myriad taxes on employers, financial transactions, the ultra-wealthy and large corporations and some savings elsewhere. Those measures are meant to pay for a projected $20.5 trillion in new federal spending. Notably, they include what is essentially a payroll tax increase on employers, something economists generally say can hit workers in the form of reduced wages...
New Study Analyzes Hizballah's Online 
Recruitment of Palestinian Terrorists
by ~ A lot of attention has been devoted to the Islamic State's use of the internet to inspire or direct international terrorist attacks. But little has been written about how Hizballah uses similar approaches to recruit and execute attacks... with the exception of a few outlets like the Investigative Project on Terrorism and the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center. A new study published last month in the CTC Sentinel explores this development by analyzing several cases of Hizballah's alleged social media efforts to recruit Israeli Arabs and Palestinians to kill Israelis. From the end of 2015 through 2017, both the Islamic State and Hizballah recruited terrorists outside their base countries using social media and encrypted communications platforms to help people form cells and conduct terrorist attacks abroad. Several high-profile Islamic State virtual plots were carried out successfully killing people in Europe and beyond during this period. Hizballah, on the other hand, has thus far failed to execute an attack using Palestinians recruited online. But foiled, covert plots still point to a major, yet poorly understood, terrorist threat to Israel. By hiding behind anti-Israel Facebook groups, Hizballah can oversee plots from afar, at a limited cost to the organization. The latest study compares and contrasts six publicly available cases of Palestinians recruited by Hizballah handlers online. In each case, Hizballah operatives develop ties with individual Palestinians through anti-Israel Facebook groups. After establishing a relationship, the Palestinian recruit is instructed to continue discussions over encrypted e-mail and other communications platforms. The recruit is then asked to form cells with other trusted people in the West Bank. According to the analysis, all of the recruits and cell members were young men from across the West Bank between the ages of 18-32. The sole exception was 49-year-old Mustafa Ali Mahmoud Basharat – who did not make it very far in the planning process before Israel foiled that plot. In most cases, Hizballah used secure platforms to send instructions on how to build explosive devices. Palestinian recruits usually conducted surveillance of Israeli military targets, unless Israeli authorities disrupted the cell early on the planning process. Hizballah's instructions ranged from kidnapping Israelis , carrying out bombings, and conducting shooting attacks against Israeli military targets. In one case, a Hizballah-led cell started to build explosives to use in a suicide bombing targeting an Israeli bus...
Iraqi Protesters Vent Anger
at Iran-Backed Militias
by David Adesnik and Nicholas Wernert
{ } ~ Iraqi protesters are lashing out at the Iran-backed militias who sought to crush the anti-government uprisings that have roiled Iraq since early October... The protesters’ slogans and choice of targets linked to the militias demonstrate the extent to which anti-Iran sentiment now animates the protest movement. Iraqis have taken to the streets to protest corruption, unemployment, and a lack of public services. Security forces’ violent crackdown on the first wave of demonstrations led to 149 deaths and more than 4,200 wounded, according to the Iraqi government. Unnamed Iraqi security officials told Reuters that snipers  deployed by Iran-backed militias were responsible for much of the carnage. A government report found that shots to the head and chest caused 70 percent of the fatalities among protesters, although it did not blame the militias. During a second major wave of protests that commenced last Friday, demonstrators began to vent their anger at the militias and at Iran. In Baghdad, protesters burned an Iranian flag, while in Karbala they gathered at the Iranian consulate, shouting “Iran out, out!” Days later, in Karbala, masked gunmen shot dead 18 protesters and wounded hundreds. Enraged by the killings, demonstrators torched more than a dozen buildings associated with the Iran-backed militias or with their political wings, including those of the Badr Organization, a militia founded in the 1980s by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). According to regional media, demonstrators burned the house of Qassem al-Araji, a Badr leader and former head of Iraq’s Interior Ministry. At a minimum, there have been an additional 91 killings over the past week. Protesters also beat to death Wissam al-Alawi, a commander in the Asaib Ahl al-Haq (AAH) militia, after dragging him from an ambulance in Amara. Earlier, AAH fighters reportedly gunned down scores of demonstrators in Amara and Nasiriyah...   
Another Terrorist Leader Bites the Dust
xF6U7Hdynv1xqPcQI4yil-eeKVMrtTA-QfFQVlY1f48qDR8_LnkSnt_X3km5-xy5A7CDYv5GsXg-R1UktVs2cg2rDztfi2wSgmtavA23wE8_7T2q3T1EeRdihgQv8xwSFYEzRYB7Ddj9Kg4UnEmdSf7Vucl6NmA=s0-d-e1-ft#%3Ca%20rel%3Dnofollow%20href= Cal Thomas

Only extreme partisans intent on denying President Trump any credit for any success would be critical of the operation he ordered that resulted in the death of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. These extreme partisans include Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi who, while praising the “heroism” of the special unit that conducted the raid on al-Baghdadi’s location in Northern Syria, could not bring herself to say anything nice about the president. Instead, she said the House should have been notified in advance. Why? Does the House command troops? liar-Pelosi lamented that Russia was informed, but that was because Russian weapons and troops were in areas over which American helicopters flew in order to reach their target.

Kudos to senator and presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, who said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the president’s decision was a “good one.” She even acknowledged without rancor that it could benefit him politically.

In a Sunday morning appearance at the White House, the president reminded forgetful Americans of the type of organization al-Baghdadi led. He recalled prisoners dressed in orange jumpsuits, who were shown on videos with knives at their throats and later beheaded. He also said, “Baghdadi was vicious and violent, and he died in a vicious and violent way — as a coward, running and crying,”

For much of the world this was a “Wizard of Oz” moment when the curtain is pulled back and the man behind it is not as frightening as he appeared to be.

Some commentators on various TV networks kept referring to al-Baghdadi’s “ideology.” His was more than an ideology. Communism is an ideology. Fascism is an ideology. What motivated al-Baghdadi and other ISIS fighters was religion. When one believes he is on “a mission from God,” to invoke a line from the film “The Blues Brothers,” there is little to stop him, other than death. Radical Islamists believe their death in fighting us “infidels” is a guaranteed ticket to Heaven. How does one deter that, other than by helping them punch their ticket?

Radical Islam is a virus. It is not contained within borders. It does not have a capital that can be bombed. That is why its evil nature must always be exposed and its goals thwarted. Yes, others will sign up and those currently ISIS members will likely be even more motivated by revenge. Still, others may see the cowardly behavior of al-Baghdadi and be motivated to either quit the organization, or not join it in the first place.

Americans have a short attention span and need to have their memories jogged from time to time about the multiple threats that confront all free people who wish to maintain their freedom, which is never cheap.

One of the cable channels has been showing the film “United Flight 93,” the story of the hijacking of one of four planes on Sept. 11. This is the plane that Todd Beamer and other passengers saved from likely hitting the Capitol or the White House by breaking into the cockpit and driving the plane into the ground in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The film portrays the religious motivations of the four Muslim hijackers and their brutality as they stabbed and slashed the captain, co-pilot and several passengers.

Thinking about the flawless operation by American forces brought to mind Lord Byron’s classic poem, “The Destruction of Sennacherib.” It includes this line:

“For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,

And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed;

And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,

And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!”

Our troops deserve praise, as does the president for making this happen. There will be more terrorist leaders, but at least this one has bitten the dust.   ~The Patriot Post
