Footnote Highlights Corruption of 
dirty cop-Mueller’s FBI Investigative Team
by sundance
theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Margot Cleveland has an interesting article in The Federalist today outlining how the DOJ dirty cop-Mueller investigation of Christopher Steele was dropped... Essentially the article outlines how Lindsey Graham and Chuck Grassley sent a criminal referral of Chris Steele to Rosenstein/dirty cop-Mueller in January 2018; however the case was used as a shield to ward-off FOIA inquiry, but the case was never actually pursued – and eventually dropped. At the time of the 2018 referral CTH noted the Grassley/Graham referral was not what it appeared. Additionally, with hindsight and a greater understanding of the dirty cop-Mueller team corruption, we can see how this specific referral hits the center of the FBI intent around their Russia collusion-conspiracy. The issue surrounds the October 2016 Carter Page FISA application and how the Steele Dossier was used therein. When the stories first broke about the Steele Dossier being the majority of the FBI evidence (December 2017), the FBI investigators were claiming they were never aware of Chris Steele shopping his dossier to the media. However, at the same time Glenn Simpson was testifying to congress that the FBI knew Chris Steele was shopping the dossier. The need for everyone to see what Fusion-GPS Glenn Simpson was saying is the reason why Dianne Fein-stein “accidentally” released the Simpson transcript (remember, she had a cold). Fein-stein released the transcript five days after the Graham/Grassley referral. Democrats knew everyone needed to be on the same page and reading from the same manuscript. I digress…Also remember, dirty cop-Robert Mueller took over the counterintelligence investigation; so the FBI investigators from Crossfire Hurricane (2016) were now the same “40 FBI investigators” on dirty cop-Mueller’s team in 2017...

No, Joe Scarborough, Spying 
On Trump Wasn’t Done ‘By The Book’  
by Mollie Hemingway  
thefederalist.com } ~ When Attorney General William Barr acknowledged the Donald Trump campaign was spied on in 2016 by agencies investigating a dramatic conspiracy theory about alleged collusion with Russia... and said he’d like to review the matter, those who pushed the theory began to panic. Some media figures attempted to deny that spying had occurred, even though it had been revealed in various and sundry ways. They conceded that overseas intelligence assets had been placed against the campaign, that wiretaps had been secured, and that national security letters had been drafted, but they claimed these examples of spying were not spying. That they’d regularly and repeatedly referred to them as spying in non-Trump contexts slowed them down not at all. Some tried to pretend that the only example of spying was the surveillance of Carter Page, but that it didn’t count because he’d left the campaign before the surveillance began. There were a few problems, including that wiretaps can be used to secure information from months and years prior to the date it is obtained. Besides, Page had encounters with an overseas U.S. intelligence asset while he was still on the campaign. So had other campaign affiliates. The media had previously reported that four Trump affiliates had been spied on secretly surveilled: Page, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, and Mike Flynn. It is unclear what other American citizens on the Trump campaign, if anyone, were spied on by their government. Last Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” a quintet of pundits sputtered about Barr’s description. Barr specifically said he was not saying anything improper had definitively happened, just that it needed to be reviewed since spying on American citizens was such a serious thing. “Spying did occur. Yes, I think spying did occur. The question is whether it was predicated, adequately predicated,” he said...   https://thefederalist.com/2019/04/16/no-joe-scarborough-spying-on-t...

Jewish Democrats Slam Congresswoman
commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Over
Comment That Cutting US Aid to Israel
Should Be ‘On the Table’
by algemeiner.com:  Freshman Congresswoman commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) asserted in a media interview over the weekend that cutting military and economic aid to Israel should be “on the table.”... “I think it is certainly on the table. I think it’s something that can be discussed,” the prominent progressiver lawmaker said on Yahoo’s “Skullduggery” podcast on Sunday. commie-Ocasio-Cortez said that newly re-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s pledge to annex territory in the West Bank should be opposed by the US government. She also criticized Netanyahu as a “Trump-like figure.” “I think these are part of conversations we are having in our caucus, but I think what we are really seeing is an ascent of authoritarianism across the world,” she said.The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) on Monday strongly criticized commie-Ocasio-Cortez for her comments. “We are pleased commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recognizes she is NOT a leader on Israel in Congress,” the group said in a statement. “We recommend she engage with Dem leaders Eliot Engel, Nita Lowey, & Ted Deutch before contemplating the future of US military aid to Israel.” The JDCA emphasized US-Israel ties “must supersede politics.”...

Acting DHS Secretary McAleenan designates 
new acting CBP commissioner, in 
latest agency staffing shake-up
by Brooke Singman  
{ foxnews.com } ~ Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan on Monday designated Customs and Border Protection Chief Operating Officer John Sanders as acting CBP commissioner... filling McAleenan's former post in the latest staffing shake-up at the Department of Homeland Security. McAleenan, who was appointed acting DHS secretary following the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen April 7, designated Sanders to take over “as the senior official performing the functions and duties of the commissioner” of CBP. “John Sanders has proven instrumental to advancing CBP’s mission and organizational priorities across the agency,” McAleenan said in a statement. “In addition to bringing greater focus on the agency’s operational requirements, he has provided strategic direction and oversight to critical enterprise services and operations support functions across the agency.” He added: “With John Sanders’ leadership, CBP will continue to excel, remain ever vigilant, and accomplish the mission with steadfast resolve.” Monday's announcement caps a turbulent week for DHS. Last Sunday, President Trump announced  Nielsen would resign from her post and be replaced with McAleenan. But Nielsen’s resignation was only the beginning. By last Monday, U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph ‘Tex’ Alles stepped down from his post after he was told to “prepare an exit plan,” in a signal, almost two weeks ago, that a transition in leadership at DHS was imminent...   https://www.foxnews.com/politics/acting-dhs-secretary-mcaleenan-des...

Fissure between Dems who 
are socialists & Dems who pretend they’re not
by S.Noble
independentsentinel.com } ~ The Center for American Progress (CAP) and Think Progress (CAP’s political action wing) are indelibly linked together and to the scumbag/liar-Clintons through funding, origins, like goals and tactics... They’re tied by blood as smear machines knocking off candidates as they decide who will be President by any means necessary. commie-Bernie Sanders is in their sights. The New York Times mysteriously obtained a letter   that commie-Bernie Sanders sent CAP and TP accusing them of orchestrating attacks on him and two other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, Elizabeth dinky-Warren, and scumbag-Cory Booker. He wants it to stop as he insists they are dividing the party and lessening Democrat chances of winning in 2020. “Center for American Progress leader Neera Tanden repeatedly calls for unity while simultaneously maligning my staff and supporters and belittling progressive ideas,” commie-Sanders wrote, adding: “I and other Democratic candidates are running campaigns based on principles and ideas and not engaging in mudslinging or personal attacks on each other. Meanwhile, the Center for American Progress is using its resources to smear Senator scumbag-Booker, Senator dinky-Warren, and myself, among others. This is hardly the way to build unity, or to win the general election.” It’s not that CAP and TP are any less left, it’s that they believe the country will more likely vote for the candidate who is less honest about how left they are and appears more mainstream...

Big Labor Is Losing Big Money
Brian Mark Weber:  The Left is still stinging from Donald Trump’s 2016 victory, made possible by blue-collar Democrats in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. These voters took a chance on a wealthy New York businessman who spoke their language, and he rewarded them by fighting to stop the outsourcing of American jobs and to reverse decades of industrial decline.

Heading into the 2020 campaign, two conditions might keep those same voters in Trump’s corner. First is the fact that unemployment has reached a record low, and some segments of America’s industrial base have begun to recover. Second is the very real threat that many workers feel from wave after wave of (illegal) immigrants who compete for their jobs and drive down their wages.

So what’s a Democrat to do when union workers start voting Republican? commie-Bernie Sanders has a plan, and it’s all about restricting their freedom by trashing all right-to-work laws.

But let’s take a step back and see how we got to this point.

In the wake of last year’s Janus v. AFSCME ruling, workers who weren’t members of a union no longer had to fork over fees for collective bargaining and other expenses unless they voluntarily chose to do so. Writing for the majority, Justice Samuel Alito concluded that forcing workers to pay union dues “violates the First Amendment and cannot continue.” Moreover, he wrote, “Neither an agency fee nor any other payment to the union may be deducted from a non-member’s wages, nor may any other attempt be made to collect such a payment, unless the employee affirmatively consents to pay.”

Fast forward one year. If unions had been providing these workers with so many benefits in return for their mandatory fees, they’d still remain members even after the Janus ruling, right?

Instead, they left in droves.

Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw asks, “What did anyone really expect? If those non-members were fully in support of the unions and didn’t object to kicking in for their political efforts they’d already be members of the union. If they agreed with all of the blatantly partisan political shenanigans the unions are constantly up to, they likely wouldn’t have minded kicking in toward the cause. Anyone shocked by these numbers really needs to pull their heads out of the sand.”

And the numbers don’t look good for unions. CBS News reported earlier this year that union membership in the U.S. hit a record low in 2018.

Of course, these unions have only themselves to blame. Even those who generally oppose what unions have become today have no issue with the principles of safe working conditions and good wages. But many of the issues that led to the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, which gave employees the right to organize into labor unions and bargain with employers, have been resolved over the years. For example, we now have the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Consequently, unions have become little more than Democrat Party political machines, often forcing workers to fork over their hard-earned money to support issues they oppose. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, labor unions gave nearly $60 million to the Democrat Party in the 2016 election cycle. No wonder those who oppose right-to-work laws seem to care so little for the constitutional rights of workers. Instead, what they’re really upset about is how the Janus ruling has eroded their membership rolls and balance sheets – so much so that union-backed Democrats are desperate to stop the bleeding.

Unfortunately for these unions, they have very little to offer potential members. As Stacey Lennox notes at The Resurgent, unions have become “far less effective in negotiating wages and benefits.” She adds, “Most members of industrial unions contribute to their health insurance. Pensions have been converted to 401K’s. And annual salary increases do not exceed the market. Unions also cannot prevent job loss. All they can do is bargain the effects, or what laid-off workers will be entitled to in severance and other items.”

Which brings us back to commie-Bernie Sanders, who wants to abolish right-to-work laws at the federal level. Zack Budryk writes, “commie-Sanders said as president he would push legislation in Congress to prohibit the laws. Right-to-work laws bar unionized workplaces from negotiating contracts under which all members who benefit from the contract must contribute dues. Twenty-six states currently have right-to-work laws on the books.”

What to make of all this? Maybe unions should go back to the basics of fighting for the needs of workers instead of stealing their wages on behalf of the Democrat Party. If not, the Republican Party will be more than happy to welcome them aboard.  ~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:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

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.
