dirty cop-Mueller looms over Dem investigations
by Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney
politico.com } ~ After three months in power, House Democrats have finally hit their investigative stride. They’ve teed up invasive probes of President Donald Trump’s finances, uncorked subpoenas and set the stage for court battles... that could consume Washington through the 2020 election. But everything could change Thursday when Attorney General William Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s long-anticipated report on the Trump campaign’s links to Russia. dirty cop-Mueller’s findings — and whether they’re damning, benign or too heavily redacted to understand — are certain to be a major factor guiding the direction of Democrats’ probes. Such a realignment may be inevitable. While Democrats have vowed to press on with their investigations regardless of dirty cop-Mueller’s report, they’ve continued to publicly lean on the special counsel’s findings in order to determine what comes next. According to a senior Democratic aide, the six House committees conducting Trump-related investigations will immediately determine which revelations in the report apply to which panel and where there might be overlap as lawmakers move forward...   https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/16/mueller-report-democrat-i...

Top Dems demand Barr cancel presser on 
dirty cop-Mueller report, furious scumbag
 liar-Nadler sounds off
by Vivek Saxena
bizpacreview.com } ~ For two years Democrats and their media allies bandied about the Russian collusion delusion conspiracy theory. But with that conspiracy finally debunked... the conspiracy loving far-left has, it would appear, chosen to seize upon a new and arguably dumber conspiracy theory. The new conspiracy theory posits that Attorney General Bill Barr’s decision to hold a press conference prior to the release of special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s report Thursday afternoon is, in reality, part of a clandestine operation to fool the American people, or something. “This press conference, which apparently will not include Special Counsel dirty cop-Mueller, is unnecessary and inappropriate, and appears designed to shape public perceptions of the report before anyone can read it,” a slew of congressional Democrat leaders announced in a joint press release Wednesday, demanding that Barr cancel. The statement was signed by Judiciary Committee chair scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence chair scumbag-Adam B. Schiff, Committee on Oversight and Reform chair scumbag-Elijah Cummings, Financial Services Committee chair  scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters and Foreign Affairs Committee chair Eliot L. Engel. The leader of the pack, scumbag liar-Nadler, even held his own press conference. “Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, the attorney general has taken unprecedented steps to spin dirty cop-Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation,” he complained...

Did Israel Use the Supersonic Rampage 
to Strike Iranian Targets in Syria?
by Anna Ahronheim
jpost.com } ~ Israel’s Air Force reportedly used the supersonic Rampage stand-off air-to-surface missiles for the first time during a strike on Iranian positions in Syria last week... foreign media has reported. Israel allegedly struck a possible Iranian surface-to-surface missile factory in a Syrian base in Masyaf on Saturday. Satellite images released by Israeli intelligence firm ImageSat International (ISI) showed the complete destruction of the factory. “The main industrial structures were completely destroyed, including the main hangar and the adjacent three production hangers and buildings. The rest of the structures were affected and damaged by the blast,” ISI said, adding that they “assess that all the elements and/or equipment which were inside were completely destroyed as well.” According to Syria’s SANA news agency, Israeli jets fired the missiles from Lebanese airspace at about 2:30 Saturday morning. The factory, ISI said, is located in the vicinity of other facilities likely linked to Iran’s surface-to-surface missile project in Syria , which had previously been struck in alleged Israeli strikes carried out over the past two years. Dubbed “The Rampage,” after a popular video-game, the missile is a supersonic, long-range, accurate air-to-ground assault missile with a warhead, rocket engine and advanced navigation suit which allow for precision targeting. Amit Haimovich, director of marketing and business development for IAI’s MALAM engineering unit, told The Jerusalem Post in June that due to the combination of the Rampage’s speed and physical-form factor, “it can be detected but it is very hard to intercept.” “If you take the Middle East arena and areas protected by air defense systems, the whole point of this missile is that it can target within standoff ranges” without threatening the launching platform, he said...   https://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Did-Israel-use-the-supersonic-Ram...

China's Aggression in the South China Sea
by Debalina Ghoshal
gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ A long-standing territorial dispute between Beijing and Manila over Thitu Island also known as Pagasa, one of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea... resurfaced in full force recently, when more than 200 Chinese boats were spotted in the vicinity of the island. Thitu Island is controlled and administered by the Philippines, and Filipino civilians  and  military personnel inhabit the island. Sovereignty over the island is claimed by the Philippines, China, Taiwan and Vietnam. Increased Chinese encroachment on the Spratly Islands -- and a recent "goodwill visit" of Russian Navy ships to the Philippines -- should be cause for alarm in Washington. In recent years, Beijing-Manila relations improved to the point where Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte and Chinese President Xi Jinping signed 29 cooperation agreements, including a memorandum of understanding on joint oil and gas development in the South China Sea. In response to criticism in the Philippines over what was viewed as Duterte's dangerous appeasement of Beijing -- which historically has failed to respect Manila's claimed maritime borders or its claimed rights to the South China Sea's valuable resources -- Duterte justified his position on the grounds that "China is in the South China Sea... that is the reality, and America and everybody should realize that they are there." The sighting of the Chinese vessels near Thitu, however, concerned even Duterte, who told Beijing to "lay off" the island, yet stopped short of threatening military action. This is where the United States and Russia come into play...

Mexico Says It Will Restrict 
Migrants w/in Its Borders
by libertyheadlines.com:  Mexico said Wednesday that central American migrants will be given “regional visitor cards” near the Guatemalan border that restrict their movement to the south of the country... impeding their ability to reach the United States. The restriction will be a blow to tens of thousands of migrants, fleeing the poverty and violence at home, who enter southern Mexico and travel across the country in so-called “caravans” in an attempt to seek asylum in the US. The cards will be given out in the southeastern city of Tapachula, where Mexican media report there are around 5,000 would-be migrants planning to head to the US. “In appropriate cases, for nationals of neighboring countries, a Regional Visitor Card will be issued which allows multiple entries and exits from the country but with the possibility of mobility only in the southern states,” Mexico’s National Migration Institute said in a statement.US President Donald Trump has warned of a raft of sanctions — including closing official border crossings — unless Mexico cracks down on migrants. He made illegal immigration a cornerstone of his populist election platform, insisting the US is flooded with migrants and asylum seekers and promising to build a border wall across the length of the south. It is not clear what effect issuing regional visitor cards will have on the caravans given many of the migrants have entered Mexico illegally anyway.   https://www.libertyheadlines.com/mexico-restrict-migrants-borders/

It's Mueller Time
Nate Jackson:  Attorney General William Barr held a press conference this morning to discuss the release of a slightly redacted version of dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s 400-page report on his two-year investigation into “Russian collusion.” In a Friday afternoon news dump on March 22, dirty cop-Mueller sent his report to the Justice Department. Two days later, Barr issued his four-page executive summary of it, showing that dirty cop-Mueller concluded two things: First, Donald Trump did not collude with Russia as Democrats have alleged for more than two years, and, second, it was inconclusive whether Trump had obstructed justice in the process of the investigation. The latter provided Democrats all the opening they needed to move into Phase Two — obstructing the MAGA agenda.

Naturally, Democrats and their Leftmedia outlets also spent the intervening time insisting that Barr is hiding something and that dirty cop-Mueller’s report is actually incriminating against the president. Heads they win, tails Trump loses. Their goal is painfully obvious: Keep Trump on the political ropes with churned fake news through the 2020 election. After all, this collusion narrative propelled Democrats to victory in the 2018 election — ensuring that Vladimir Putin did interfere with American elections.

Even before Barr’s press conference, Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag-Schumer called it “pre-damage control” from Barr, who “is acting more like a Trump campaign spokesman than an independent agent of the law.” In a joint statement with House Speaker Nancy Pulosi, scumbag-Chuck and Nancy complained about Barr’s “regrettably partisan handling of the dirty cop-Mueller report.” And they’re just objective bystanders.

With that setup, Barr faced America today and said, “As the Special Counsel’s report makes clear, the Russian government sought to interfere in [the 2016] election. But thanks to the special counsel’s thorough investigation, we now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign — or the knowing assistance of any other Americans for that matter.”

Moreover, in the matter of the hacked DNC and scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton campaign emails, Barr noted, “The special counsel’s report did not find any evidence that members of the Trump campaign or anyone associated with the campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its hacking operations. In other words, there was no evidence of Trump campaign ‘collusion’ with the Russian government’s hacking.”

The bottom line, says Barr: “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”

On the question of obstruction, Barr noted that dirty cop-Mueller “recounts 10 episodes involving the president” to consider a possible obstruction offense. dirty cop-Mueller was inconclusive, but Barr said, “After carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report, and in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers, the Deputy Attorney General and I concluded that the evidence developed by the Special Counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”

Barr explained that decision:

In assessing the president’s actions discussed in the report, it is important to bear in mind the context. President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office, and sought to perform his responsibilities as president, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office, and the conduct of some of his associates. At the same time, there was relentless speculation in the news media about the president’s personal culpability. Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was in fact no collusion. And as the special counsel’s report acknowledges, there is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by a sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency, propelled by his political opponents, and fueled by illegal leaks. Nonetheless, the White House fully cooperated with the special counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the president took no act that in fact deprived the special counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation. Apart from whether the acts were obstructive, this evidence of non-corrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation that the president had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation.

Let’s emphasize one line: “The White House fully cooperated with the special counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims.” That utterly undercuts the Left’s obstruction claims.

Finally, addressing the question of what was redacted and by whom, Barr asserted that only DOJ attorneys working with the Special Counsel’s Office determined all redactions under four categories — grand-jury information, classified information, information related to ongoing investigations, and information that would violate privacy of individuals. President Trump and his lawyers did not request redactions or claim executive privilege in seeking to block the release of any part of the report. That release, by the way, is not the norm. These reports are not created for release.

Barr emphasized, “We will make available to a bipartisan group of leaders from several Congressional committees a version of the report with all redactions removed except those relating to grand-jury information.” The more redacted version has been released to the public.

Now, stay tuned for the foreseeable future as pundits and armchair lawyers comb through dirty cop-Mueller’s report looking for something — anything — to support their presuppositions. Indeed, the questions Barr fielded were largely demanding that he answer for Democrat talking points designed to cast doubt upon Barr or Trump. What else would anyone expect from the real collusion partners — Democrats and their propagandists in the Leftmedia?  ~The Patriot Post

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
