DOJ watchdog submits draft report 
on alleged FISA abuses to Barr
By Alex Pappas, Catherine Herridge and Jake Gibson 
{ } ~ The Justice Department’s inspector general told lawmakers Friday his team is nearly finished with its long-awaited review of alleged surveillance abuses by the DOJ and FBI during the Russia investigation... saying they have submitted a draft to the attorney general and are “finalizing” the report ahead of its public release. “We have now begun the process of finalizing our report by providing a draft of our factual findings to the department and the FBI for classification determination and marking,” Michael Horowitz wrote in a Friday letter to several House and Senate committees. “This step is consistent with our process for reports such as this one that involve classified material.” Attorney General Bill Barr has received the draft report from Horowitz and will begin the process of reviewing it, according to a source familiar with the situation. The inspector general said his team has “reviewed over one million records and conducted over 100 interviews, including several of witnesses who only recently agreed to be interviewed.” Horowitz and his investigators have probed how the infamous, anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele was used to secure the original Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant for former Trump aide Carter Page in October 2016, as well as for three renewals. Horowitz’s team has questioned why the FBI considered Steele a credible source, and why the bureau seemed to use news reports to bolster Steele’s credibility. In his letter Friday, Horowitz indicated that once the Justice Department and the FBI send back a marked document relating to classified material, his team will “proceed with our usual process for preparing final draft public and classified reports, and ensuring that appropriate reviews occur for accuracy and comment purposes.” Meanwhile, a key FBI player during the time frame, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, is facing the prospect of federal charges after Horowitz faulted him in a separate inquiry over statements he made during a scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton-related investigation. The review found that McCabe "lacked candor" when talking with investigators, but the former FBI official has denied wrongdoing...  
China Seeks to Run UN "Crime" Agency
by Alex Newman
{ } ~ Not content with its agents running about a third of United Nations agencies already, the Communist Party of China is now pushing one of its minions to lead the powerful UN “crime” agency as well... The bid comes amid surging influence for the mass-murdering dictatorship within the “global governance” system. But unlike during the scumbag/liar-nObama administration, this time, critics from Capitol Hill to the White House are paying attention — and speaking out. Beijing's move to install Andy Tsang-Wai-hung as chief of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) comes just after Communist Chinese agent Qu Dongyu secured the top spot at the massive UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO). Whistle blowers and diplomats accused the regime of using bribery and threats to secure enough votes from UN member governments to have Qu take over the influential post. The effort to have Tsang run the UN “crime” agency also comes shortly after the Communist Chinese agent running Interpol, the self-styled global “law-enforcement” agency, was arrested by authorities in China. Among other charges, communist officials in Beijing publicly accused former Interpol boss Meng Hongwei of failing to obey Communist Party orders while running the France-based international organization. Headquartered in Vienna with a biannual budget of around $700 million, the UNODC that Beijing has its eyes on claims to be a leader in the fight against crime, terrorism, and more. It is currently led by a former diplomat for the mass-murdering Soviet regime, Yury Fedotov, who regularly blasted the United States for obeying the U.S. Constitution by failing to enforce blatanly unconstitutional UN agreements. The brutal Iranian dictatorship, by contrast, was regularly praised and celebrated by Fedotov's administration. Tsang's history suggests he will be just as bad — if not worse — than Fedotov when it comes to advancing globalism, whitewashing savage tyranny, and threatening national sovereignty across a broad range of policy areas. Among other roles, Tsang serves as deputy director of the regime's “National Narcotics Control Commission.” The outfit has developed a global reputation for barbarism and horrifying human-rights violations, including beating and torturing prisoners and using them for slave labor, as documented by Human Rights Watch...   
Impeach the President? scumbag liar-Nadler 
Says Yes, liar-Pelosi Says No. Pelosi Rules.
by Bob Adelmann
{ } ~ As expected scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, got his resolution passed on Thursday, moving forward with impeaching the president... It passed on party lines, 24-17. Now he must deal with the mess he created because he ignored 200 years' worth of precedent, consequently putting his committee’s impeachment cart before the House’s horse. Under that precedent there is a set process to follow to impeach a president: The House first authorizes the Judiciary Committee to conduct an investigation into potentially impeachable acts by the president. The committee then sets the rules for that investigation. If it finds something worthy of impeachment, it prepares articles of impeachment and presents them to the floor of the House for a vote. But in his haste to impeach, scumbag liar-Nadler went ahead without the House issuing a formal investigation request to his committee and created those rules anyway. To add to the confusion, scumbag liar-Nadler calls the resolution part of the impeachment investigation his committee has been involved in since March. So, scumbag liar-Nadler is conducting, on his own, an impeachment investigation that the House hasn’t requested. scumbag liar-Nadler couldn't care less. On Monday he told reporters, “This has been an impeachment inquiry and it continues to be.… We are examining the various malfeasances of the president with the view toward possibly … the possibility … of introducing … of recommending articles of impeachment to the House. That is what an impeachment inquiry is.” This is driving House Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) crazy. She wants to impeach the president, but the American people don’t want her to. She knows that if scumbag liar-Nadler goes ahead and finds something — or creates something — that his committee finds impeachable, it will present articles for the full House to consider. Without the votes those articles won't be approved. And there aren’t enough votes in the House. Only 135 members support impeachment, especially now that members have returned from their political junkets over the summer break carrying back with them the message that impeachment would likely reelect the president next November. The president knows that if the House approves one or more articles of impeachment, the Senate will ignore them and he will be able to declare a victory. This scenario is frightening the Democrat freshmen who just arrived in Washington, who would very much like to be reelected. liar-Pelosi ran out of patience on Thursday. When asked about the non-approved investigation scumbag liar-Nadler is conducting, liar-Pelosi waffled: “If we have to go there, we’ll have to go there. But we can’t go there until we have the facts.”...   
Ruth Bader Ginsburg Gives commie-AOC a 
Reality Check on Her Dream of 
Axing the Electoral College
By C. Douglas Golden 
{ } ~ Well, it appears the Notorious RBG doesn’t think too highly about commie-AOC’s dream of nixing the Electoral College... In a speech at the University of Chicago on Monday, Supreme Court justice and liberal hero Ruth Bader Ginsburg derided efforts to ax the Electoral College and elect presidents strictly by popular vote alone, saying that such efforts were “more theoretical than real.” Recent calls to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote have been part of liberal dogma since, oh, about 11 p.m. on Nov. 8, 2016, when it became clear scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton was going to get more votes than Donald Trump but could still lose the election. Never mind that winning the popular vote was never the point. And never mind that the Democratic National Committee, in concert with the scumbag/liar-Clinton campaign, had wasted campaign resources on getting out the vote in states where the outcome was already certain because, according to a Politico report from December 2016, then-DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile had feared scumbag/liar-Hillary would end up losing the popular vote while winning the electoral vote. In the liberal narrative, Trump had gotten fewer popular votes than scumbag/liar-Clinton, therefore his election was illegitimate. The issue has gained renewed traction, given that we’re approaching another election and one of the highest-profile Democrats in Congress, Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, recently made news by stating the Electoral College “is, in fact, a scam.” “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” commie-Ocasio-Cortez said in an Instagram story posted last month. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally.” Of course. In her speech Monday, Ginsburg didn’t address those “severe racial disparities in certain states,” but noted that there wasn’t much of a chance that the Electoral College would be replaced. “It’s largely a dream because our Constitution is … hard to amend,” Ginsburg told the audience, according to the Washington Examiner. “I know that from experience.” Not only could that be seen as a rebuke of commie-Ocasio-Cortez’s call to abolish the Electoral College, it could also be seen as a word of warning to those behind the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, a legislative agreement in which states would give their electoral votes to the popular vote winner no matter who won the state...   
Dems Took Secret Trips to Mexico, Coached I
llegals On How to Exploit Immigration Laws
by Rusty Weiss And Jeff Dunetz
{ } ~ Fox News has obtained a letter from House Oversight Committee ranking member Jim Jordan (R-OH) which accuses Democrat staff of partaking in multiple secret trips to Mexico... In one of the more extreme accusations in the letter, Jordan also cites reports that Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) allegedly ‘coached’ migrants on how to exploit federal immigration law loopholes.Jordan asserts that committee staff took two trips to Mexico in August without the knowledge of Republicans. “Although you have the authority to direct Committee staff to travel internationally on official committee business, you have not explained why you authorized this travel into Mexico or what you sought to learn through these trips,” the Ohio Republican wrote. Jordan surmised that the trips – one of which required a special escort by Border Patrol back over the border – were designed “to delegitimize the administration’s border security efforts and vilify the men and women who protect our border.” That is, of course, what the Democrat goal is. In their minds, Border Patrol are the criminals, not those actually breaching our southern border. More disturbing, Jordan questions reports that Escobar was involved in the “coaching” of migrants...   
Buttigieg Distorts Logic and Scripture 
on Abortion
94fuUGGIUhFqFBkhrpKYpYUEMt7HQtSbeDZEAATehLOXddJPoLEoXRuwMBtEJS9MVgCcmqBwfpGTfgoG9IEec8wJJHisFwU1VEaK5dxKWLH_Nhss7dds4HcQJYAQdjWDcCe4KyBy8UNofZ3yDSWJenvlaI0fbTA=s0-d-e1-ft#%3Ca%20rel%3Dnofollow%20href= David Limbaugh

Perhaps Mayor Pete Buttigieg would have a better shot at appealing to Christian voters if he would not go to such extreme lengths to contort Scripture to rationalize his party’s abominable stance on abortion.

The Democratic presidential candidate openly expresses his Christian faith and was the first candidate to hire a national faith outreach director. He believes political conservatism is less compatible with Christianity than political liberalism.

Buttigieg says the GOP likes “to cloak itself in their language of religion” and accuses Republicans of hypocrisy for their alleged callousness about family separations at the border.

“For the party and the movement known for beating other people on the head with their faith, or their interpretation of faith, it makes no sense to — we’ll literally vote to take away food from the hungry, to essentially be practicing the very thing that not just the Christian scriptural tradition but so many others tell us we’re not supposed to do in terms of harming other people,” said Buttigieg in an interview with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. “I do think there’s going to be a reckoning over that because there are a lot of people I think sitting in the pews hearing political conservatism all around them, wondering whether that really matches what we’re being told to do, not to mention how we’re supposed to do it.”

It is undeniable that Jesus repeatedly and emphatically commands us to care for the poor, and Christians take these directives lightly at their own peril. But these commands are directed at individuals, not governments. They are anything but a mandate for socialism.

Progressives, especially those contemptuous of biblical Christianity, have long claimed a monopoly on compassion for the poor and insisted conservatives are greedy and indifferent. Their support for an ever-growing welfare state has seductive appeal to those who equate government-coerced redistributions of wealth with personal charity. It is attractive to those who don’t understand or who willfully ignore socialism’s historical record of impoverishing and enslaving people.

Conservatives don’t believe you show your compassion through virtue-signaling advocacy of large wealth transfers when those transfers reduce individual liberties and suppress economic growth and prosperity for all — not just the wealthy. There is nothing noble in using government force to equalize incomes, and nothing about it is consistent with the American idea.

It may be counterintuitive to contend that capitalism is more compassionate to the poor, but it makes sense if your yardstick is results and not supposedly good intentions. It makes sense if you understand that free markets have played a central role in making America the most prosperous nation in history.

Few conservatives oppose a reasonable safety net, but most resist open-ended programs that disincentivize work for able-bodied people, thereby perpetuating the dependency cycle, which is detrimental to people’s financial well-being and dignity.

It’s one thing to argue that the Bible endorses a mammoth welfare state but entirely another to suggest that it remotely supports the pro-choice position, much less abortion on demand up to the point of birth and after (infanticide), as many prominent Democrats now do. Their willingness to twist Scripture to justify their radical position is instructive.

During a recent radio interview, Buttigieg attacked Republicans for their stance on abortion and defended, on biblical grounds, abortion throughout the term of pregnancy. “Right now, they hold everybody in line with this one … piece of doctrine about abortion,” he said. “Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath. And so, even that is something that we can interpret differently.”

There are plenty of verses to contradict Buttigieg’s sophistry here, and he knows better than to make these arguments. Advancements in science and technology have made it almost impossible to deny that an unborn baby is a human life. This is why most leftists have abandoned the absurd claim that the unborn child is merely a clump of cells and have instead turned to the more brazen argument that the mother has a right to kill a human being in the womb. It is hard to believe, but that’s where the left is today.

Buttigieg himself effectively admits that when life begins is not the deciding factor for him on abortion. “I might draw the line here. You might draw the line there. But the most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision,” he declares.

Thank you for your momentary honesty, Mayor. The woman’s sovereign choice prevails over the innocent baby’s life — and God’s Word, which you cynically invoke.

Buttigieg’s brother-in-law is having none of it. Pastor Rhyan Glezman has strongly rebuked Buttigieg and called him to repent for distorting the words of the Bible. “I feel a sense of responsibility and stewardship of my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No, that’s not true,’” he explained. “‘God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start at the first breath, it starts when we enter our mother’s womb.’”

Buttigieg is free to argue whatever he wants, but he is doing himself no favors by lying to himself and to us about his (and the Bible’s) position on abortion.   ~The Patriot Post
