Florida Leftist Arrested After Threatening to Kill GOP Representative

4 hours 11 min ago

A Florida leftist was arrested this week after threatening to kill Republican state Rep. Jose Felix Diaz (R-Miami).

Steve St. Felix threatened Rep. Diaz to “kill your ass” on Facebook.

The Miami Herald reported:

Two weeks after a U.S. congressman and four others were shot during a baseball practice in a Washington suburb by a man with a history of lashing out at Republicans, a Florida lawmaker decided he wasn’t taking any chances.

So Sunday, after someone threatened his life on a Facebook page, state Rep. Jose Felix Diaz, R-Miami, informed police.

And on Monday, Northwest Miami-Dade resident Steve St. Felix, 34, was arrested and charged with written threats with intent to do bodily injury. Police said St. Felix was “fed up” with the Republican Party — and that he hadn’t taken his meds when he posted the threat. It’s unclear what condition the medications were treating.

The threat — “I’ll kill your ass and you better not show up to the next REC meeting” — was quickly removed from the Facebook page, police said. It appeared to refer to the Republican Executive Committee, the name of the local Miami-Dade County GOP.

President Trump is Fundraising Off of “Fake News CNN”

5 hours 19 min ago

Project Veritas dropped a new bombshell undercover video on Tuesday. The video shows CNN Producer John Bonifield admitting the Trump-Russia story is B.S. but that CNN continues to push the false narrative for ‘ratings’.

O’Keefe teased his Twitter followers on Monday by sending out a cryptic tweet saying, “Independence Day is approaching, but this year the fireworks come early.”

The video is the latest setback for CNN after a reckless weekend report on the Trump administration.

By Tuesday night President Donald Trump was using the Project Veritas video to raise donations from supporters.

President Trump sent this email out on Tuesday night:

James,

THREE CNN reporters were forced to resign after concocting a fake news story that attempted to tarnish an innocent man’s reputation simply because he worked for our MAGA movement.

NOW undercover footage raises serious questions with a CNN producer alleging that the network has been pushing phony news stories to boost their ratings, rile up their rabid liberal viewers, and take us down…

“All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you’re just like, that’s adorable… This is a business. … So, they got to do what they got to do to make their money.

“There are a lot of like liberal CNN viewers who want to see Trump really get scrutinized…if we would have behaved that way with President Obama and scrutinized everything that he was doing…our viewers would have been turned off.”

“And so I think the president is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof.”

I’ve been saying it and I will keep saying it. This is the REAL opposition. The Democrats are a lost cause without a message, but the fake news media machine can push liberal propaganda all it wants 24/7 and pretend it’s the truth.

We have a very important FEC deadline coming up on 6/30 at 11:59 PM. Our 2017 Mid-Year Deadline! This is our chance to show the FAKE NEWS they WILL NOT GET AWAY with stripping you of your voice and subverting our democracy!

Report: Democrat Party More Destructive to Economy and Culture Than Modern Chinese Communist Party

5 hours 42 min ago

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Hong Kong continues to record record surpluses after 20 years of Communist rule.

Meanwhile, Chicago is facing bankruptcy and a murder rate that rivals war zones after decades of Democrat rule.

(Chicago picture from Insider Chicago article of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods – and a recent photo of Hong Kong, China)

Hong Kong

This Saturday, July 1st, will mark the 20th anniversary of the British handover of Hong Kong in 1997 to Communist China.  The peaceful handover occurred after 150 years of British rule over the colony.  China first ceded Hong Kong to the British after the First Opium War in 1842.  Then in 1898 China leased the New Territories together with 235 islands (collectively referred to as Hong Kong) to the British for 99 years starting on July 1st.

The British rule over Hong Kong lasted through World War II.  Few Americans realize that Hong Kong was bombed by the Japanese on the same day as Pearl Harbor.  Eventually the Japanese surrendered to the US and Hong Kong was set free after five years of brutal Japanese rule.  A few years later many Chinese fled to Hong Kong to escape the Communist takeover of China.

As the 99 year lease expiration approached in 1997 the British decided not to renew their lease and therefore hand Hong Kong back over to China.  The British worked to influence the post handover government and China eventually agreed to the “one country, two systems” approach to Hong Kong after the hand over.  The Communist Chinese recognized the crown jewel it had in Hong Kong and decided to step back in many ways from taking over total control of the economic and government systems present in Hong Kong.  The Chinese Communists fell far short for providing for universal suffrage but they did decide for the most part to leave the economy and social policies alone.

Today Hong Kong is recognized as a separate country in most country classifications because of the “one country, two systems” approach by the Communist Chinese.  Hong Kong has a budget surplus nearly every year.  This is in spite of the country providing basically free health care to all its citizens and proving free housing for 30% of its population.  Hong Kong is rated number one in the world with the world’s freest economy and Hong Kong is known as the financial center of Asia.

Chicago is a different story

Two years ago Moody’s Investors Service downgraded Chicago’s debt to junk status, the decision equated to a 5% chance of Chicago defaulting on its bond obligations in the next three years, meaning bondholders wouldn’t get back all they have lent the city.  At that time Chicago’s far left newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, reported that Chicago wasn’t Detroit and it wasn’t going bankrupt.  Now politicians in Chicago are arguing that maybe bankruptcy is not such a bad thing.  Chicago currently faces $25 billion in pension promises that it cannot pay.

Chicago also faces a horrible murder rate:

With more than 760 murders last year [2016], Chicago tallied more killings than New York City and Los Angeles combined. It was the highest murder toll for the city in nearly two decades.

Members of the main stream media (MSM) who have reported on the problems in Chicago rarely, if ever, point out that the city has been run by the Democrat Party for nearly a century.   Chicago is basically under a one-party rule because the last Republican mayor of Chicago left office in 1931.  The city is famous for Democrat  charlatans who thrive on corruption.

By late 2016 police morale was very low.  Actions by President Obama to support hate group ‘Black Lives Matter’ promoted violence against police.  As reported at that time:

Chicago is in the process of surrendering to its gangs, all because too many people, including President Obama, cling to the childish fantasy that crime would disappear if only the cops were nicer.

Comparison of Hong Kong and Chicago

Chicago and Hong Kong are roughly the same size with the Chicago area reporting 9.8 million inhabitants and the Hong Kong area reporting 7.3 million.  However, one of these cities is rampaged with crime, insolvency and terrible management.  It doesn’t take long for the casual observer to see that Hong Kong is thriving while Chicago is in despair.  It is also apparent that the Communist Chinese have done a much better job of managing Hong Kong when compared to the Liberals in Chicago. 

The Communist Chinese show that capitalism works as exemplified by their policies and actions with Hong Kong since 1997, while Liberals in Chicago show through their policies and actions that they believe communism is the answer. 

It’s ironic that Communists in China know better than the American Democrat Party that to ensure prosperity and stability, the less the government does to impede capitalism the better.

One Year Ago Today – Snakes on a Plane

Reporter Christopher Sign of ABC 15 in Phoenix, AZ broke the story on the secret meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Arizona on June 27, 2016.


Loretta Lynch leaving plane after meeting with former President Bill Clinton on tarmac in Arizona.

Christopher Sign said the FBI told local reporters they could not take in photos or video of the meeting:

Hillary Clinton told “Meet the Press” later that week that the controversial meeting between her husband and Attorney General Loretta Lynch was “purely social.” Hillary insisted they talked about their grandkids and golf during their meeting on the tarmac.

That was a lie.

The NSA now says it will not release details of the meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch due to the “national security” risk.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch faces jail time for obstruction of justice if information showing she furthered DNC interests surface.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe Faces THREE Separate Federal Inquiries Into His Behavior

12 hours 30 min ago

Acting FBI Director, Andrew McCabe is facing THREE separate federal inquiries into allegations about his behavior, Circa News reports.

As reported earlier, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Counsel violating the Hatch Act according to a new report by Circa News.

 

Via Circa News:

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a central player in the Russia election case, is the focus of three separate federal administrative inquiries into allegations about his behavior as a senior bureau executive, according to documents and interviews.

The allegations being reviewed range from sexual discrimination to improper political activity, the documents show

The inquiries remain open but so far there have not been any adverse findings against the senior FBI executive, who soared though the ranks the last few years to become deputy director and acting director since James Comey was fired.

FBI officials and McCabe declined comment.

 

As TGP previously reported, Comey’s replacement as Acting FBI Head, Andrew McCabe, has ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Left Wing online publication, Newsweek, is reported:

concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.

CNN Faced $100 Million Lawsuit Over Fake Russia Story

13 hours 2 min ago

Very fake news CNN was facing a $100 million lawsuit for a story they were forced to retract linking Trump’s transition team to a Russian investment fund.

As TGP previously reported, CNN deleted a story from its website last Friday evening about congressional investigators allegedly focusing on a Russian investment fund whose top executive met with a Trump transition team member.

Via The New York Post:

The specter of a $100 million libel suit scared CNN into retracting a poorly reported story that slimed an ally of President Trump’s — and forcing out the staffers responsible for it, The Post has learned.

The cable network’s coverage of Trump transition-team member Anthony Scaramucci came amid federal scrutiny of corporate parent Time Warner’s pending purchase by AT&T — and the widespread belief among media execs that CNN President Jeff Zucker can’t survive a merger.

CNN immediately caved after Scaramucci, a financier and frequent network guest, cried foul and threatened to take legal action, sources said Tuesday.

Scaramucci got an unusual public apology but still hired a top Manhattan lawyer to put further pressure on CNN and “look after [his] interests in this matter,” one source said.

Executive Editor Rich Barbieri sent an internal memo to CNN staff instructing them that all Russia-related stories must be cleared by him or the VP before being published following a retraction of a very fake news story linking the Trump transition team to Russia.

Monday, three CNN employees ‘resigned’ over a retracted story linking Trump to Russia.

The carnage didn’t stop there. James O’Keefe dropped a late night bombshell Monday evening with undercover video of CNN Producer John Bonifield admitting the Trump-Russia story is B.S. but they continue to push the false narrative for ‘ratings’.

The chickens are coming home to roost for CNN for their nonstop propaganda. The American people are fed up with CNN and other fake news outlets who are merely extensions of the Democrat party. CNN is a disgrace; they should lose their White House press credentials for their nonstop lies and attacks on President Trump.

BOOM! Sarah Palin Suing New York Times for Defamation

13 hours 53 min ago

Sarah Palin is suing The New York Times for defamation, according to documents filed in federal court Tuesday that were obtained by The Daily Caller.

Peter Hassan from The Daily Caller:

The lawsuit has to do with an editorial the NYT ran on June 14 that falsely smeared Palin as inciting the 2011 shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords by a mentally ill man. There is no evidence to support the NYT’s implication that Palin played a role in inciting the Giffords shooting. (RELATED: NYT Uses GOP Shooting To Falsely Attack Sarah Palin With Debunked Conspiracy Theory)

“Mrs. Palin brings this action to hold The Times accountable for defaming her by publishing a statement about her that it knew to be false: that Mrs. Palin was responsible for inciting a mass shooting at a political event in January 2011,” Palin’s suit states.

“Specifically, on June 14, 2017, The Times Editorial Board, which represents the ‘voice’ of The Times, falsely stated as a matter of fact to millions of people that Mrs. Palin incited Jared Loughner’s January 8, 2011, shooting rampage at a political event in Tucson, Arizona, during which he shot nineteen people, severely wounding United States Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and killing six, including Chief U.S. District Court Judge John Roll and a nine-year-old girl.”

As TGP previously reported, The New York Times revived their blood libel against Sarah Palin in order to equate Republican and Democrat behavior following the shooting of Congressman Scalise. In the original NY Times article, they blamed Palin for Gabby Giffords being wounded by a shooter:

Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.

After the Arizona shooting the far left media went in overdrive to blame the shooting by a deranged killer to Republican rhetoric.

One in three Americans (35%) believe that Sarah Palin was responsible for the shootings in Tucson by an anti-Christian, anti-Constitution, left-wing, pro-Marx, antiflag, “quite liberal” lunatic who hated Bush.

Loughner was targeting Rep. Giffords for four years before the shooting.

FLASHBACK: That Time the Clinton Administration Said On-Camera Press Briefings Weren’t ‘Necessary’ (VIDEO)

14 hours 50 min ago

It was just weeks into President Bill Clinton’s administration when his staff decided the cameras would be off for most of George Stephanopolous’ briefings.

People seemed okay with Clinton’s ‘no camera’ rules, but when the Trump administration does it, it’s the end of democracy and freedom of the press.

In a March 1993 C-SPAN interview with White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers, she explained that the White House stopped the live press briefings because they weren’t “really necessary”.

Myers went on to say:

“I think that that was something that we did in the first week or two, I can’t remember exactly when we stopped it . . . It was a new administration, I think we wanted to talk about what was going on here . . . I think we found that it wasn’t really necessary.”

Watch the full video below provided by the Washington Examiner:

The Washington Examiner reported:

“The briefing is more an opportunity to exchange ideas and to have a conversation about what’s happening,” Myers added. “That wasn’t really happening in a way that … as productively as we had hoped.”

Myers said the White House then switched formats so that only the top of the noon-hour briefing was televised live.

“What we do now is televise the first five minutes of George Stephanopolous’s briefings at 12:30 everyday,” she said. “And the rest of it’s on the record but just not for cameras.”

The Trump White House has been sharply criticized for holding a series of off-camera “gaggles” that can be used on the record, but aren’t televised.

Reporters have argued that this isn’t enough access, but White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the live briefings are not productive in part because they are giving reporters a chance to become “YouTube stars.”

Myers also added that the Clinton administration closed down press access to Stephanopolous’s office, and said they tried to make up for that move by making officials more available to reporters.

Years after she retired, Myers said Hillary Clinton supported that idea. But Myers disapproved of it, and called it a “rookie mistake.”

“Well, obviously, in hindsight it was a hideous mistake,” she said in a PBS interview. “It just alienated people who had been working in the building for years.”

As TGP previously reported, Very Fake News CNN’s Jim Acosta threw another tantrum after being told that no cameras were allowed in Monday’s White House press briefing. Acosta even broke the rules and took a picture of Sean Spicer anyway.

Jim Acosta badgered White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and interrupted other reporters on Monday after he was told no cameras were allowed for the daily briefing.

After the press briefing, Jim Acosta called for ‘collective action’ against the press office.

Acosta: “I do think at some point some collective action will need to be taken and I do think we are going to have to ask this hard question inside the White House Correspondent’s association whether we are going to allow this to become the new normal?…”

John Podesta Interviewed by House Intel Committee in Russia Probe

15 hours 16 min ago

The House Intel Committee interviewed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman John Podesta, Tuesday in a closed door session as a part of their investigation into Russian meddling.

The Washington Times reports:

The House Intelligence Committee interviewed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman John Podesta behind closed doors on Tuesday as part of lawmakers investigation into Russian meddling in the election.

Mr. Podesta, who was targeted by Russian operatives as part of the cyber campaign launched during the election season, spoke briefly with reporters afterward.

“The president and the entire administration were dealing with an unprecedented incidence of the weaponization of the fruits of Russian cyber activity, and I think they were trying to make the best judgments they could on behalf to the American people,” Mr. Podesta told reporters after he was asked about the Obama administration’s response to the Russian hacking.

The administration has been criticized for its slow response to Moscow’s meddling, which was first mentioned publicly in October.

John Podesta’s emails were hacked during the 2016 presidential election and were subsequently published on Wikileaks. The DNC emails spread like wildfire on social media. Hillary Clinton’s dirty tricks were exposed for the world to see which is why they have put the blame on the Russians instead of accepting loss.

As TGP previously reported, a few weeks after Rich’s murder, former Head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz,  lost her position during the DNC Convention due to WikiLeaks emails being released that showed her efforts to enable Hillary Clinton to win the DNC nomination and steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders.  (Wasserman Schultz’s brother, Steven Wasserman, is the Assistant US Attorney at the Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia.  Questions have arisen as to whether Steven played a part in burying the Seth Rich murder case in DC.  No one has yet been charged in spite of the many unanswered questions related to the murder case.)

Because Rich reportedly provided emails to WikiLeaks there are many who believe Rich was murdered as a result.  One reason for this belief occurred in August of 2016.   At that time Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.  WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, in an interview alluded to the fact that Seth Rich may have supplied the emails that WikiLeaks leaked during the election last year.

It appears at this time that the DNC was still focused on finding a leaker in the spring of 2016 and the leaker had not yet been found.  It is also a fact that Podesta wanted to make an example of the leaker as noted in a Wikileaks email and Seth Rich was murdered on the night of July 10th.

Obama Under Fire From Liberals For Never Ending Luxury Vacations

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 23:10

Former President Barack Obama is under fire from his Democrat base for taking never ending luxurious vacations since leaving office.

Obama continues to embark on his endless mystery tour of millionaire and billionaire hotspots and retreats around the world. Ex-Presidents should go on vacation, but Obama seems to be flaunting a type of luxurious post-presidential lifestyle that would make the Kardashian’s blush.

Democrat strategist, Pat Caddell, a former adviser to President Jimmy Carter, commented that Obama’s “trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous” and said that Obama’s vacations are “unprecedented, and a far cry from how Carter spent his first few months out of office.”

Fox News reports:

Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali — where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; a Palm Springs estate; Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island; the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club in Oahu; the 13th-century Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany; and the Rising Sun, Hollywood studio mogul David Geffen’s private yacht.

“These are some of the most luxurious travel destinations in the world. Many of our clients spend tens of thousands of dollars or more to stay at these resorts, which cater to the most discriminating and demanding guests,” said Kendra Thornton, travel expert and owner of luxury travel agency Royal Travel. “For example, Necker Island has a nightly price tag of $80,000. Anyone who stays at these properties does so because they want the best of the best.”

Rising Sun in Tahiti

A post shared by David Geffen (@davidgeffen) on Mar 12, 2017 at 10:05pm PDT

“I think the Bernie Sanders wing of the party, when they see President Obama, whom they instinctively want to defend being the corporatist president, I think it makes the base uneasy,” said Caddell.

Left-wing activists told Fox News they are troubled by what they see as a trend by Obama to distance himself from the base of the party. It’s not just vacations. The president also has enjoyed hefty fees for speeches to prominent Wall Street firms. It’s all part of a trend, they say, of Obama trying to join the fabled 1 percent.

“Obama is not as wealthy or as conservative as Trump, George W. Bush, or George H.W. Bush, but he enjoys what used to be called ‘the lifestyle of the rich and famous,’” said Dr. David Michael Smith of the Houston Socialist Movement. “I am not surprised by Obama’s several recent foreign vacations. As president, he disappointed millions of supporters who hoped he would be a strong advocate for working-class people.”

Sebastian Gorka on O’Keefe CNN Tapes: “Complete Vindication For The President”

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 22:54

National Security editor for Breitbart, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, was asked during an interview today to give his thoughts on the series of O’Keefe’s CNN tapes. In the series of tapes, a CNN producer can be clearly heard admitting that Trump/Russia collusion is “bullshit” and that the entire thing is a “witch hunt” to help CNN’s ratings. Gorka did not mince words when addressing the ramifications of these released tapes, and the (now public) exposure of CNN knowingly pushing false stories.

Via Breitbart:

“I think this is the day when the Left rues ever coming up with the phrase ‘Fake News’ because now we have the evidence. We have the consequences of systematic generation of Fake News, happening at the epicenter of one of the places that was producing the most of it,” he said.

“It’s just a testament to the determination of the president,” Gorka continued. “He sticks with what he knows to be true. He hangs in there doggedly and finally. Thanks to intrepid people like James O’Keefe, we have the evidence, and people are getting fired.”

President Trump: Obama, Not Republicans, “Colluded” With Russia In 2016

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 22:47

In a series of tweets starting this weekend and leading into Monday, President Trump has charged that former President Barack Obama was the one who “colluded” with Russia and obstructed justice. This tweets came just days before James O’Keefe’s undercover footage of a CNN producer admitting that the Trump-Russia ties are a “witch hunt” and outlets are only leading with such stories for “ratings.”

The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2017

…and did not want to "rock the boat." He didn't "choke," he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2017

The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia…

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe Under Federal Investigation

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 22:45

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Counsel violating the Hatch Act according to a new report by Circa News.

The Hatch Act prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races. Photos of McCabe campaigning for his wife raised questions about McCabe’s compliance with the law.

Via Circa News:

 Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Special Counsel for violating The Hatch Act that prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races.

The Office of U.S. Special Counsel, the government’s main whistleblower agency, is investigating whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s activities supporting his wife Jill’s Democratic campaign for Virginia state senate in 2015 violated the Hatch Act’s prohibition against FBI agents campaigning in partisan races.

The Hatch Act prohibits FBI employees from engaging “in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group.”

It defines prohibited political activity as “any activity directed at the success or failure of a partisan group or candidate in a partisan election.”


As TGP previously reported, Comey’s replacement as Acting FBI Head, Andrew McCabe, has ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Left Wing online publication, Newsweek, is reported:

concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.

Wikileaks even tweeted an article about the corruption:

CAUGHT: Jeremy Corbyn Calls Islamic Hate Preacher ‘Honored Citizen’ (VIDEO)

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 22:05

Rebranded Communist Jeremy Corbyn was caught on video lavishing praise upon a hate preacher and even inviting him to ‘tea on the terrace’ at Parliament.

Corbyn is directly tied to extremist Sheikh Raed Salah and called him an “honoured [sic] citizen” and invited him to tea in the House of Commons.

Salah is a prominent member of the Islamic Movement in Israel and was “excluded from the UK because of concerns over his ‘virulent anti-semitism’.” Salah slipped through border control at Heathrow in 2011 and gave a number of speeches before being arrested on the orders of the British Home Secretary.

In a video from 2012, British Labour favorite Jeremy Corbyn praises the Islamist preacher, the Daily Mail reports:

‘[Salah] is a very honoured citizen. He represents his people extremely well and his is a voice that must be heard… I hereby renew my invitation to Sheikh Salah to come to Parliament, meet with me, meet with my colleagues.

He will be assured of a very warm welcome. I look forward to giving you tea on the terrace because you deserve it.

Salah, who served two years in prison for raising millions of pounds for the Palestinian terror group Hamas and for having contact with an Iranian intelligence agent, has made a number of incendiary and extremist remarks on camera.

In a speech broadcast by Qatari Al-Jazeera in 2012, he said: ‘Very soon, Muhammad will be the most popular name in Europe.

‘I say to you who harbor hatred towards the Messenger of Allah that it will not be long before Allah grants us victory over you.’

Last year, Salah was filmed delivering a sermon in Nazareth in which he said, ‘Inshallah, Jerusalem will soon become the capital of a global caliphate.

‘The caliphate will spread justice throughout the land after it was filled with injustice by America, the Zionist enterprise, the Batiniyya, reactionism, Paganism and the Crusaders,’ he said.

Gingrich: Obama Should Testify Under Oath Before Congress in Russia Probe (VIDEO)

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 21:20

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday during his appearance on ‘Fox & Friends’ that Congress should call on former President Obama to testify under oath about what he knew about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Gingrich: “Guess what’s about to happen, the Congress is about to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russia meddling.”

“Who told him? Why did he do nothing? Who was in the meetings when he decided to do nothing? It’s going to turn out, yes, there’s a big Russian story. It’s Barack Obama, not Donald Trump. And you cannot make this stuff up.”

The Hill reported:

According to the report, Obama was notified of the Russian hacking and influence campaign in August, but was wary to punish Moscow out of fear that any action by the White House could be perceived as interference in the presidential race.

That Clinton was widely expected by Democrats to win the November election also reportedly contributed to the Obama administration’s slow action.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Slams CNN: “Everyone Across the Country” Should Watch Project Veritas’ Undercover Footage (VIDEO)

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 20:42

Cameras were allowed at Tuesday’s White House press briefing and chaos ensued as the ripple effect of the CNN video and the healthcare bill

At one point during the briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the recent CNN retraction regarding a story about Russia wherein three employees of the company ‘resigned’ following the retraction.

The line of questioning ended with, “Why isn’t the response [from CNN] good enough for the president?” Huckabee Sanders responded in kind:

“I don’t know that it’s that the response isn’t good enough for the President, I think it’s the constant barrage of fake news directed at this President, probably, that has garnered a lot of his frustration. You point to that report, there are multiple other instances where that outlet that you referenced has been repeatedly wrong and had to point that out or be corrected . . .”

Huckabee Sanders then brought up the recent video released by Project Veritas that shows a prominent CNN producer admitting that the Russia-Trump story is “bullsh*t:

“There’s a video circulating now, whether it’s accurate or not – I don’t know – but I would encourage everyone in this room, and frankly, everyone across the country to take a look at it. I think if it is accurate, I think it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism, I think that we have gone to a place where if the media can’t be trusted to report the news, then that’s a dangerous place for America. And I think that if that’s the place certain outlets are going, particularly for the purpose of spiking ratings and if that’s coming directly from the top, I think that’s even more scary and certainly more disgraceful.”

Energy Secretary Rick Perry: “Instead of preaching about clean energy, this administration will act on it!”

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 20:39

Energy Secretary Rick Perry lead today’s White House Briefing with a robust discussion of U.S. energy policy in the age of Obama versus how the Trump Administration hopes to bring it into the 21st century.  Perry reflected, “For years, Washington stood in the way of our energy dominance, and that changes now,” showing the administration’s willingness to lift regulations that have slowed advancement and driven up costs, Perry asserted that “instead of preaching about clean energy, this administration will act on it!”

Part of the re-assessment of U.S. Energy involved a re-dedication to nuclear power, one of the most efficient “clean” energy sources that much of Europe has come to currently rely on.  Perry discussed the shift in nuclear perceptions since the 60s, lamenting that during his childhood, children used to want to grow up to be nuclear engineers and scientists before the false vilification of nuclear as a reliable and stable energy source. “Let’s make nuclear energy cool again!” Perry announced.’

More via Huston Chronicle:

Perry spoke to the administration’s “commitment to clean energy,” urging the development of technology that captures carbon dioxide from fossil fuel emissions and the need to secure the country’s ailing nuclear power industry. But he did so as part of an “all of the above strategy,” in which fossil fuels, including coal, nuclear energy and renewable sources like wind and solar all compete in a free market to reduce U.S. energy costs.

Growing domestic fossil fuels even as efforts to curtail their use gain momentum around the world is likely to pose a serious challenge for Trump and his administration. Trump has made reviving coal a particular focus, but the outlook for that industry is particularly daunting, considering the competition from cheaper and cleaner natural gas, said Bud Weinstein, associate director of the Maguire Energy Institute at Southern Methodist University.
“I don’t know how realistic [Trump] is,” he said. “He’s catering to a constituency that got him elected.”
Under the strategy laid out by Perry, regulatory reform would eventually increase production across domestic oil and gas fields and coal mines, providing enough energy to supply the country’s own needs and those of its trading partners abroad while growing the nation’s economy.
He pointed to the newly formed U.S. LNG industry that is now delivering natural gas from Texas and other domestic fields around the world. And the energy secretary said he hoped to one day see similar market demand for U.S. coal, explaining he had already broached the topic with officials in China and Ukraine.
“These collective actions are just the beginning of our America First energy strategy that has us well on our way to energy dominance,” he said. “Unleashing our full energy potential in this country will lead to very robust job growth and expansion in every sector of our economy.”

Dad Accused of Murdering Son on Disneyland Trip as Revenge Against Estranged Wife

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 19:33

A Pasadena, CA father is being accused of murdering his own 5-year-old son during a trip to Disneyland to get back at his wife for a divorce.

Via Metro UK:

Police have been searching for Aramazd Andressian Jr for two months. The boy’s father, Aramazd Andressian Sr, was found passed out in his petrol-soaked car in South Pasadena on April 22.

CCTV footage shows the pair leaving Disneyland together hours before Aramazd Jr

He is believed to have then driven 145 miles to Lake Cachuma in Santa Barbara County.

Although no body has been found, authorities swooped in on the 35-year-old and charged him with murder this week.

Officials said he was spending a lot of time in Las Vegas and not showing the signs of a grieving parent. He had also shaved his beard and dyed his hair in a bid to change his appearance.

Police believe he was planning to run to go into hiding in a location where he could not be extradited.

BREAKING – Senate Delays Health Care Vote Until After Recess

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 18:03

Senate Republican leaders have decided to delay the health care vote until after the July 4 recess. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement Tuesday at a Senate Republican lunch according to reports.

Axios reports:

Senate Republican leaders have done an abrupt about-face on the health care bill: They’re now planning to delay the vote to take up the bill until after the July 4 recess, according to two senior GOP aides. They say Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement at the beginning of today’s Senate Republican lunch.

The bottom line: “Vote after break. McConnell wants to win. Going to make changes new score and win,” said one aide.

Between the lines: Majority Whip John Cornyn had said earlier that the vote was going ahead. But ultimately, the decision is McConnell’s — and he was getting too much pushback from Senate Republican holdouts who said they weren’t ready to vote this quickly, without changes to the bill.
