Intel Chairman – Trump Team Definitely Spied Upon...
by Rick Wells
{} ~ House Intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes said on Wednesday, reading from a prepared written statement, “While there was not a physical wiretap of Trump Tower... I was concerned that other surveillance activities were used against President Trump and his associates.” He continued, “So first, I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions the intelligence community incidentally collected information about US citizens involved in the Trump transition. Details about US persons associated with the incoming administration, details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value, were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.” He said, “Third, I have learned that additional names of Trump transition team members were unmasked. And fourth and finally, I want to be clear, none of this surveillance was related to Russia or the investigation of Russian activities or of the Trump team.”...
DHS Issues Report Listing Jurisdictions
Failing to Cooperate With ICE Detainers
by Warren Mass
{} ~ On March 20, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued its first weekly “Declined Detainer Outcome Report,” which fulfills a requirement in President Trump’s January 25 Executive Order... “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States.” These reports are prepared to “highlight jurisdictions that choose not to cooperate with ICE detainers or requests for notification, therefore potentially endangering Americans.” When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect the public safety and carry out its mission. Our goal is to build cooperative, respectful relationships with our law enforcement partners. We will continue collaborating with them to help ensure that illegal aliens who may pose a threat to our communities are not released onto the streets to potentially harm individuals living within our communities. The statement posted by ICE notes that The Declined Detainer Outcome Report, in addition to listing the uncooperative jurisdictions, also includes examples of criminal charges associated with the aliens that local jurisdictions have released...
Schiff Shifting Democrats To Trump Spied
On By Accident liar-nObama Cover Up
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Adam “Shifty” Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence committee is speaking out. As expected, he has a problem with Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) sharing information that indicates President Trump was correct in his assertion that Hussein liar-nObama was wiretapping him... Nobody indicated a belief that liar-nObama himself had climbed a pole at least not an inanimate one of the telephone variety with headphones on or gone into an FBI or CIA bunker and directed the operation himself. Still, that is the position that Schiff took for his latest shift and denial in the cover up and obstructions he’s managing for the corrupt Democrats. After Nunes informed Speaker Ryan, the propaganda media and President Trump, he got together with the Democrat, which seems to have ruffled some of the bug-eyed peacock’s feathers. Shifty said on Wednesday that he has “grave concerns” over the way Chairman Nunes is handling the investigation. Of course he does; the truth is coming out, a situation Schiff was placed on the committee to prevent...
Republicans Are Freaking Out About Neil Gorsuch

 by Erick Erickson
{} ~ Republican activists are freaking out about Neil Gorsuch. You have to admit they have some reason to do so. Given the GOP’s propensity to appoint people to the Supreme Court who go wobbly... see e.g. Kennedy, Souter, and Roberts on liar-nObamacare, the base gets concerned when certain things are said. Yes, Neil Gorsuch said he would walk out of Trump’s office if Trump had asked him to overrule Roe v. Wade. The man is supposed to defend the independence of the third branch of government and you want him to agree to that? The headlines alone would give certain squishy Republicans the opportunity to oppose him. But Gorsuch has a history of rejecting stare decisis when he thinks the courts have gotten it wrong. Stare decisis is the concept that judges must give due deference to precedent. It is the argument that Democrats make about Roe v. Wade, but if a Republican asked Gorsuch about Plessy v. Ferguson, the Democrats would be appalled if Gorsuch defended stare decisis. Plessy, if you don’t know, is the case that established “separate but equal” between blacks and whites as the law of the land...

Bring Assata Back ASAP
by Michele Malkin
{} ~ If FBI agents have time to track down Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jerseys, why can't they bring back AWOL convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur?

It is time for one of the agency's most wanted women in the world to pay her dues. And President Trump is just the man to force this militant and unrepentant escapee to face justice.

Forty years ago this week, a New Jersey jury convicted Joanne D. Chesimard -- aka Assata Shakur -- on first-degree murder, assault and other charges in the 1973 traffic stop execution of state trooper Werner Foerster and wounding of trooper James Harper. She received a life plus 30 years sentence.

But instead of serving behind bars, Shakur has led the pampered life of a "political fugitive" in socialist Cuba after her radical Black Liberation Army buddies busted her out of prison. The late Fidel Castro's regime provided the fugitive murderer and social justice vigilante an apartment, stipends, books and funding for graduate school.

As she ages in comfort, the BLA's self-styled mother hen is now a campus icon among the Black Lives Matter generation. She's a T-shirt, a poster, an internet meme. Just last week at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, minority students convened an "Assata Shakur Reading Group" -- which the school newspaper described as a "biweekly book club for people of color that focuses on radical, black activism."

Activism? Try bloodstained domestic terrorism. At the time of Foerster's murder, the BLA had been tied to the murders of more than 10 police officers across the country. Before the turnpike shootout, the BLA had ambushed two pairs of NYPD officers in a 48-hour spree, killing two of them; murdered another cop in Atlanta; and executed another pair of NYPD officers in 1972.

Chesimard, her brother-in-law Zayd Shakur who died in the gunfight with Foerster and Harper and another BLA member were wanted for questioning in the murder of two of those cops when they were stopped.

BLA's "sole goal," domestic terrorism expert and author Bryan Burrough noted in an interview for my new investigative program on Shakur, "was assassinating policemen." When BLA thugs ambushed rookie NYPD officers Rocco Laurie who was white and Greg Foster who was black while they walked the beat in the East Village in 1972, they didn't just shoot them. They stood "over them and just continued to shoot into their bodies, into their heads" after they lay dead in the snow, Burrough recounted.

Retired FBI agent and Morris County, New Jersey, Sheriff James Gannon further schooled the ignorant: "This is not a soccer mom, this is a woman who was involved in very high-end, very violent crimes."

Joseph Connor, whose father, Frank, was murdered by the BLA-aligned Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN in 1975, added that these violent left-wing extremists were far from freedom-loving peaceful protesters: "They were looking to subjugate people beneath them. They weren't looking to free people, they were looking to murder people, they were looking to cause mayhem."

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has vowed to use trade policy to pressure Cuba to extradite Shakur and scores of other convicted criminal fugitives back to the United States. President Trump, who ushered in a new era of respect for law enforcement after eight years of President liar-nObama coddling of the social justice mob, should get this deal done before yet another grim anniversary passes.

Every day they wait is another day the left's violent movement for "armed struggle" against our men and women in blue festers with impunity.
