PUT PRESSURE ON THE GOP NOW! Time to Pass a National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Law

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 23:32
By Mark Chesnut

In an educational op-ed posted Thursday at New York Daily News, criminologist and author John Lott makes the case that the previous day’s shooting at a GOP Congressional baseball practice proves why the country needs national Right-to-Carry reciprocity.

Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, said restrictive carry laws—like the one in Washington, D.C., forbidding nearly all law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms, even if they have permits from their home states—leave people helpless against attack.

“It’s not easy for a truck driver to avoid troublesome state and city gun laws as he drives across the country with valuable merchandise,” Lott writes. “He can quickly run into trouble in ‘may issue’ states such as New York, New Jersey, Illinois or California, which give out few permits and require applicants to demonstrate sufficient ‘need.’

“Or imagine a single woman driving across state lines at night, hoping that her car won’t break down along the highway.”

In fact, Lott is correct. The dizzying array of laws throughout the country can leave even the most informed gun owners confused about where they can and cannot go when they are carrying a firearm. Consequently, many leave their firearms at home to avoid potential problems with law enforcement—effectively having their right to bear arms negated because of conflicting laws from state to state to state.

Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA, puts it like this: “The current patchwork of state and local gun laws is confusing and can cause the most conscientious and law-abiding gun owner to run afoul of the law when they are traveling or temporarily living away from home. Law-abiding citizens should be able to exercise their fundamental right to self-defense while traveling across state lines.”

As Lott points out, despite naysayers condemning national reciprocity legislation, much of the country already effectively has reciprocity through agreements worked out between individual states. That leaves states not participating in such agreements basically off limits.

“For most of the country, reciprocity is already a fact of life,” Lott writes. “The average state allows people with concealed handgun permits from 32 other states to travel freely. But the eight ‘may issue’ states and D.C. pull down that average; only one of those eight states, Delaware, recognizes permits from any other state.”

I found myself in just such a predicament earlier this year. I was making plans to drive from Tulsa, Okla., to Norfolk, Va., to visit my son, who is in the U.S. Marine Corps. Mapquest showed me three different routes, with the fastest one passing through the southern part of Illinois. Because of that state’s unfriendliness to guns and gun owners, I chose a more southern route, which took longer but passed through the more gun owner-friendly states of Arkansas and Tennessee.

This all brings us back to Wednesday’s attack at the baseball practice. Many Republican representatives have concealed handgun permits from their home states, but carrying in the District of Columbia is illegal for all but a select few D.C. residents. As Lott mentions in the op-ed, while the attack occurred in relatively gun-friendly Virginia, that is irrelevant to a representative going directly between baseball practice and Capitol Hill.

“Only about 100 people in all of D.C. have concealed handgun permits,” Lott concludes. “There’s no good reason not to issue permits much more generously. Permit holders are extremely law-abiding, losing their permits for any firearm-related violations at rates of thousandths of one percentage point.”

SET DIRTBAG LEVEL TO MAXIMUM: Joy Reid and Scott Pelley Blame Steve Scalise For Getting Shot

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 00:04
By Daniel John Sobieski.cxax4 { font-style:italic; }

Have you no shame, Joy Ann Reid? In an appalling example of the left’s pathological hatred of anything and anyone conservative, the MSNBC host said, not in so many words, that Rep. Steve Scalise kind of had it coming when a Bernie Sanders volunteer tried to assassinate him and his GOP colleagues as they practiced for thee annual baseball game between Democrats and Republicans in Congress. As Fox News reported her beneath contempt and all human decency remarked:

 As Rep. Steve Scalise lay in his hospital bed recovering after he was shot by a maniac gunman who was hunting congressional Republicans, an MSNBC host asked whether the House Majority Whip’s life-threatening injuries meant Americans had to “ignore” his political positions.

Joy Ann Reid on Saturday cited Scalise’s positions on ObamaCare and gay marriage as among the concerning “moral” issues she felt couldn’t be overlooked despite his critical injury at the hands of a left-leaning lunatic who opened fire at a GOP baseball practice on June 14.

“There’s a whole country out there and a lot of people, at least in my Twitter timeline, and it’s a delicate thing, because everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers, but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said.

Funny, I don’t recall anybody targeting Sen. Robert Byrd because of his history on race or even bringing up in any memoriam after his death. Unlike Byrd, was not a former “Grand Kleagle” with the Ku Klux Klan  Unlike Scalise, Byrd held the distinction of being the only Senator to have opposed the only two black nominees to the Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas,  and led a 52-day filibuster against this legislation.

Joy Ann Reid’s litany of Scalise’s crimes against humanity for which he deserved being target for assassinsyion reveal how skewed to left is her moral compass, if she has one:

'He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event, which he says he didn't know what it was.

'He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He voted for the House healthcare bill, which as you said would gut healthcare for millions of people including three million children and he cosponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons.'

As for attending a “white nationalist meeting,” he attended an even being held in the same venue but may not have attended the meeting in question held later in the day. As National Review reported:

House majority whip Steve Scalise may not have spoken to a conference of white nationalists in 2002 after all, even though he’s already apologized for doing so.

Kenny Knight, a longtime political adviser to former Ku Klux Klan leader and Louisiana politician David Duke, told Bloomberg that Scalise spoke to a town hall at the same venue as the white nationalist event, before the latter event began.

Knight said he invited Scalise, then a state legislator, along with someone from the Red Cross and a sheriff’s representative, to speak to a civic organization before the European-American Unity and Rights Organization held their conference.

“I basically gave him a town-hall meeting to address constituents about legislation he was working on,” Knight said. “It was not a EURO-sponsored event. I sponsored the event as president of the local civic association.” EURO, a group of white nationalists started by David Duke, hosted the conference that Knight says Scalise did not attend; some attendees, Knight said, did show up to Scalise’s talk. Knight told a similar story today to Slate and the Daily Beast.

 On Monday, Scalise’s staff confirmed to the Washington Post that he had attended the EURO-sponsored convention, but Scalise himself told the Times-Picayune on Tuesday he did not recall speaking at the event. Knight’s comments only add to the confusion about Scalise’s involvement in the white-nationalist event.

Scalise “apologized” for attending an event he did not attend due to the confusion resulting from a House leader’s busy schedule, not because he did anything he did wrong. Certainly he dod not attend a klan meetibg as the adored Robert Byrd did.And for this he deserved to be targeted for assassination, Ms. Reid?

And, horrors, he supports the Biblical definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman. He supports repealing ObamaCare and its lies about keeping your, plan and your doctor and saving $2,500 annually in premiums. He supports the Second Amendment and not ineffective legislation that bans guns on their appearance and not on their lethality., Lock and load, liberal loons!

While Joy Ann Reid can be dismissed as a left wing gadfly on a cable network, CBS’ Scott Pelley supposedly represents mainstream media and its professed objectivity and fairness. But there he was, blaming Scalise’s shooting on Scalise’s own rhetoric:

Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted."

It's clear from Pelley's subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are "Yes." It's equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right

Self-inflicted?  As has been noted on this site, the Alexandria shooter woke up one morning intent on killing Republicans, not because of anything they’ve said or done, but because Democratic leaders from Nancy Pelosi, to Bernie Sanders, to Jerry Brown, have said Republican policies, from healthcare to climate change, will kill people, setting off the leftist lons determined to save mankind.

Sorry, Pelley and Reid, your commentary gives license to leftist loons seeking to kill Republicans, just as Kathy Griffin and her severed head of Trump and the New York Theatre in the Park’s depicting the assassination of President Trump. Your venomous rhetoric is the problem, not an analysis of it.

QOTD: "Republicans have already preemptively sabotaged our messaging on Obamacare. Continuing in their group will just waste another month we could be working on regulations, immigration, and national security, and we won’t repeal Obamacare anyway, but instead just make it more popular.

It would be one thing if Republicans at least repealed the core regulations that make Obamacare insolvent. Then, even if they throw endless subsidies at Medicaid, private insurance, and high risk pools, at least there can be a free market, albeit a distorted one, for the remainder of the country or at least for the states that don’t want government-run health care. But it has become clear that on the regulatory structure, the Senate is making the House bill worse, not better. The time to evacuate is now.

It’s not too late for conservatives to propose their own repeal bill with free market supply side and insurance reforms. They can stand on their own messaging instead of dying for the other side’s ideology. If we are going to be stuck with a failing health care system, skyrocketing premiums, and states without a single insurer, at least let’s have the blame put on Obamacare, where it belongs, not phony repeal of Obamacare, so that we can have a small chance of coming back at another time and repealing it." --Daniel Horowitz

VERY FAKE NEWS: The Cover-up of Robert Mueller’s Rather Unseemly Track Record

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 02:38
By Cliff Kincaid

I am amazed by the conspiracy of silence, on the right and the left, about former FBI Director Robert Mueller’s bungling of the anthrax case. “In his years as FBI director and as a Justice Department official, Mueller gained a reputation for honesty, integrity, and being a ‘straight-shooter,’” writes Fred Barnes at The Weekly Standard.

This is pure hogwash, to use a family-friendly term.

Barnes, a veteran journalist, is not alone in offering such undeserved praise of Mueller. Commentators on the right and left have been repeating this garbage ever since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel. Interestingly, Rosenstein also received high praise from various commentators. He, too, was seen as a straight shooter. With former FBI Director James Comey, they constitute an unholy alliance that is determined to take down President Donald Trump. With good reason, Trump calls it a witch hunt.

But since Rosenstein appointed Comey’s buddy Mueller as special counsel, people are beginning to see the whole process as a setup. Or as Barnes puts it, the deck is “stacked” against President Trump. Hence, “the sword of impeachment will be hanging over him,” says Barnes.

This didn’t have to happen, if journalists and commentators had been open and honest about Mueller’s real record. Simply put, Mueller can’t be trusted to arrive at the truth. The anthrax letters case proves it. He should never have received the appointment as special counsel. Barnes’ assertion that the deck has been stacked ignores the fact that he and his associates in the Never-Trump movement helped stack the deck. Why didn’t they blow the whistle on Mueller when he was appointed? Why do they ignore his real record now?

The trap has been set by those conservatives in the media, echoing their liberal colleagues, who wanted to pretend that Mueller is overflowing with honor and integrity. By showering him with praise, they have joined hands with the liberal media in setting the stage for Trump’s impeachment and forced resignation from office.

Call me a cynic, but I can’t help thinking that the Never-Trumpers in the media, such as Barnes, know precisely what is happening. They know Mueller is determined to take down Trump, but that he can only do so if he is given a clean bill of health as a first-rate investigator. Hence, they must whitewash Mueller’s corrupt record in advance of him filing charges against Trump and/or his associates.

Only in the swamp known as Washington, D.C. can a failed FBI chief be rehabilitated into a “straight-shooter,” qualified to bring down a president with the powers of a special counsel.

“In 2004,” retired Foreign Service officer and intelligence analyst Kenneth J. Dillon tells Accuracy in Media (AIM), “the FBI learned that the anthrax mailer was an al-Qaeda operative. Under White House pressure, Mueller suppressed this finding and continued to hunt for a domestic suspect. When scientist Bruce Ivins committed suicide in 2008, Mueller blamed him for the mailings, then lied to a Senate committee about it.”

Although the anti-Trump special counsel railroad is on schedule, pending a Trump decision to fire Rosenstein and Mueller, it is still important for the public to know some of the details about how Mueller botched the anthrax case by falsely blaming various American scientists for the letters that killed five people and injured dozens.

At the time of the anthrax attacks, I was working closely with AIM founder Reed Irvine, who never backed down from a search for the truth. A series of AIM Reports challenged the FBI’s handling of the case and examined how various members of the news media, most notably New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof, pushed dubious theories targeting innocent American scientist Steven Hatfill. Kristof operated on the basis of a phony theory, fed to him by a leftist, speculating that the anthrax letters were mailed by a right-winger, probably a white guy working for a U.S. lab. The FBI went along with the false premise, ignoring the obvious evidence of an al-Qaeda role.

To illustrate how Mueller botched the case, consider that the FBI didn’t have a shred of evidence against Dr. Hatfill, but drove him out of two prestigious jobs and ruined his career. At one point, the FBI claimed to have fished a piece of Hatfill’s lab equipment, supposedly an anthrax weapons device, out of a pond. The FBI spent $250,000 to drain the pond but found no evidence of anthrax in it. The device was a minnow bucket.

Acting like the KGB, one FBI agent followed Hatfill as he went to buy some paint, and ran over his foot with a car. Hatfill was given a ticket by D.C. police for walking over to the FBI car and trying to take a picture of his tormentor. It appeared that the FBI was trying to provoke Hatfill so they could arrest him on some flimsy charge and claim they were right about him all along. This is similar to how a special counsel operates.

Comey took over for Mueller at the FBI and could have reopened the case in order to determine why, in the end, the Department of Justice awarded Hatfill nearly $6 million in damages. Comey could have cleaned house, purging corrupt agents. Instead, Comey decided to maintain the cover-up and keep Mueller’s so-called sterling reputation intact. As a result, the FBI still maintains that another scientist, Ivins, who was persecuted and driven to suicide, was the culprit.

Even before the embarrassment with the minnow bucket, columnist Dan K. Thomasson had written that the FBI’s handling of the anthrax case “has to be the most incredible display of bizarre ineptness since former FBI director Louis Freeh took personal charge of the investigation to nail Richard Jewell for the bombing in Atlanta’s Olympic Park” in 1996. Jewell wasn’t guilty of anything except some genuine heroism that saved lives.

Ignoring the anthrax investigation debacle, some commentators are noting that Mueller is staffing his operation with Democratic Party lawyers. What else did you expect? His assignment is to bring down Trump. In regard to the President, we said on May 24, “Mueller will produce evidence of a crime out of nothing if he has to.” That’s what they tried to do to Hatfill.

In Trump’s case, it doesn’t matter if the charges are legitimate. All that matters is that they give the appearance of impropriety, so that the impeachment process can get underway.

Since Comey continued the Mueller anthrax letters cover-up, we have to assume that the FBI culture hasn’t changed, and that Mueller, now in charge of dozens of FBI agents as part of his special counsel investigation, will order his investigators to frame President Trump and/or his top aides with some charge or another. This is a vendetta that constitutes revenge on a President they don’t like and who is suspicious of their work.

At first I was amazed by the continuing cover-up surrounding Mueller’s terrible record, which also includes letting Islamists rewrite FBI training materials. Then, I thought about it and considered a major human flaw which characterizes the work of commentators and journalists—they don’t ever want to admit they’re wrong. They accepted Mueller’s work on the anthrax case as legitimate at the time, and now don’t want to revisit the matter because it would put their own judgments under scrutiny. It’s much easier, under these circumstances, to say that Mueller’s work was exemplary, even though such a claim is a blatant lie.

Fake news is all around us, on the left and right.

QOTD: "Whether it’s an Islamic terror attack, a political assassination, or a crazy domestic shooter, the hallmark of all these attacks is mass casualties … when good people are not carrying weapons. This is why we see so many people killed in European terror attacks. Only the bad guys have weapons. In the case of the Alexandria shooting, however, Scalise’s security detail had guns and immediately returned fire to keep the attacker at bay, thereby mitigating what could have been a massacre. Nevertheless, had a member of leadership — the only members of Congress routinely afforded security details — not been on the baseball team, as many as 20 congressmen might now be dead. So many of these congressmen have concealed carry permits at home, yet they are unable to carry a weapon in the D.C. area, where they work so much of the time. This is fundamentally unfair and dangerous, and it needs to change.

The answer is not to grant special privileges to members of Congress, as some have suggested. The answer is to allow all Americans to carry guns across state lines the same way everyone can drive across state lines and have their driver’s licenses recognized by all 50 states. Such legislation is already on the table, with nearly 200 co-sponsors (including 3 Democrats), yet nearly a half a year into this Congress, Republicans have taken no action on it..." --Daniel Horowitz

BERNIE SANDERS INCITEMENT VIDEO: "Fight... Push Them Back... Take Action... Fight... Revolution"

Sat, 06/17/2017 - 22:57
Dispatched by James Woods, this Bernie Sanders video represents incitement, pure and simple. His language makes his aims clear:

Be sure to wear masks and carry signs on poles that can be used as weapons to intimidate free speech... #BernieThugs pic.twitter.com/8GcqjFPABK

— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) June 17, 2017
Fighting. Action. Revolution.

All the typical hallmarks of socialist, leftist, Marxist and Communist agitation.

Saul Alinsky was a mentor and inspiration for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

One of Alinsky's key tenets: Change is brought about through relentless agitation and “trouble making” of a kind that radically disrupts society as it is.

Another is: There can be no conversation between the organizer and his opponents. The latter must be depicted as being evil.

Still another is: Politics is all about power relations, but to advance one’s power, one must couch one’s positions in the language of morality.

Writer Don Surber astutely identifies the left's false language of morality as a critical ingredient in its stew of violence.

The Democrats' Alinsky-esque and relentless drift leftward, beyond any perimeter of Americanism, capitalism and free enterprise, have made their tendency to violence predictable and inevitable.

LEFTIST VIOLENCE: 33 Attacks Against Conservatives in the Last Year Alone

Sat, 06/17/2017 - 21:34
By Dave Brooks and Benjamin Decatur

A wave of liberal rage has marked the last 11 months since the rise and subsequent election of President Donald Trump.

Antifa protestors clad in black masks shut down college campuses, destroy property and indiscriminately attack those they disagree with, whether women or the elderly. Meanwhile, CNN fires Kathy Griffin for taking photos with a bloody replica of the president’s decapitated head.

Amid this backdrop, The Huffington Post publishes an article calling for the execution of Trump and “everyone assisting his agenda.”

Then, shots ring out as a man gorged on media hysteria attempts to slaughter Republican congressmen while they practice for a charity baseball game.

The aggression since Trump’s nomination is difficult to enumerate, but nevertheless, The Daily Caller News Foundation pored over media reports to compile a close but non-exhaustive list of violent acts against conservatives in months following the Republican National Convention.

In creating the list, TheDCNF reviewed numerous articles detailing attacks and violent threats against conservatives and Trump supporters. While there are examples of anonymous threats, TheDCNF chose to include only those that resulted in the cancelling of events and two to members of Congress deemed credible. Some instances of violence between rival protestors were not included as it was difficult to ascertain who initiated the event.

Events Over Time:

July 2016:

-A Hillary Clinton supporter lights a flag on fire and attacks a Trump supporter in Pittsburgh.

-Protesters jumped on cars, stole hats, fought with and threw eggs at Trump supporters outside a Trump rally in downtown San Jose. Trump supporters sued San Jose over the violence.

August 2016:

-Anti-Trump protesters attacked pushed, spit on and verbally harassed attendees forced to walk a “gauntlet” as they left a Trump fundraiser in Minneapolis, Minn., and beat an elderly man. Protesters also attacked Trump’s motorcade.

A Tennessee man was assaulted at a garage sale for being a Trump supporter.

-A Trump supporter in New Jersey was attacked with a crowbar on the street.

-Protesters in El Cajon, Calif., chased and beat up a Trump supporter.

October 2016:

-A GOP office in North Carolina was firebombed and spray painted with “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.”

November 2016:

-The president of Cornell University’s College Republicans was assaulted the night after Trump won the election.

-Students protesting Trump punched and kicked a Maryland high school student wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

-A high school student was arrested in Florida after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.

-A group of black men in Chicago attacked a white man while raging against Trump.

-Maryland high school students punched a student who was demonstrating in support of Trump, and then kicked him repeatedly while he was on the ground.

-“You support Trump. You hate Mexicans,” a California high school student yelled at a Trump supporter, before viciously beating the girl.

-An anti-bullying ambassador was arrested for shoving a 74-year-old man to the ground in a fight outside Trump tower where people upset over his win had gathered. The woman tied to Black Lives Matter caused the man to hit his head on the sidewalk.

-A Texas elementary school student was beaten by his classmates for voting for Trump in a mock election.

-Two men punched and kicked a Connecticut man who was standing with an American flag and a Trump sign.

December 2016:

-A Trump supporter was beaten and dragged by a car.

January 2017:

-A Trump supporter was knocked unconscious after airport protesters repeatedly beat him on the head.

-A Trump supporter was attacked after putting out a fire started by anti-Trump protesters.

-When Trump protesters encountered a driver with a pro-Trump flag on his car, they surrounded the vehicle, ripped off and began burning the flag, and pounded the car. They also punctured on the tires.

-California GOP Rep. Tom McClintock had to be escorted to his car after a town hall because of angry protesters. The tires of at least four vehicles were slashed.

-Protestors knocked a 71-year-old female staffer for California GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher unconscious during a protest outside the representative’s office.

-Milo Yiannopoulos speech at the University of California-Berkeley was cancelled after rioters set the campus on fire and threw rocks through windows. Milo tweeted that one of his supporters wearing a Trump hat was thrown to the ground and kicked.

March 2017:

-Masked protesters at Middlebury College rushed AEI scholar and political scientist Charles Murray and professor Allison Stranger, pushing and shoving Murray and grabbing Stranger by her hair and twisting her neck as they were leaving a campus building. Stranger suffered a concussion. Protesters then surrounded the car they got into, rocking it back and forth and jumping on the hood.

April 2017:

-A parade in Portland, Ore.,was canceled after threats of violence were made against a Republican organization.

-Fears of violent protests shut down Ann Coulter’s UC Berkeley speech. Campus police had gathered intel on protesters who were planning to commit violence.

REPUBLICANS GO ON OFFENSIVE: Call for Special Counsel to Investigate A.G. Lynch

Fri, 06/16/2017 - 23:56
By Tyler Durden

Last night, after Trump launched yet another furious tweetstorm intended to expose the double standard applied in the Hillary investigation compared to the Russia probe, we noted that Republicans might be well served to stop sitting around twiddling their thumbs and actually go on the offensive against an investigation that has obviously morphed into mass hysteria courtesy of free-flowing leaks from a conflicted "intelligence community" intent upon bringing down a presidency.  Here's what we said:

Of course, until someone within the Trump administration or Republican Party smartens up and calls for the appointment of a 'Special Counsel' to look into Hillary's email scandal, something that should have been done long ago, and not for retaliatory reasons but simply due to Comey's and AG Lynch's blatant mishandling of the investigation (a point which Deputy AG Rosenstein obviously agreed with), the Democrats have no reason to calm their mass hysteria.  Then, and only then, do we suspect that Hillary might just be able to 'convince' her party to exercise some form of reasonable judgement.

Now, according to a note this morning from The Hill, Republicans seem to be doing just that with several members of the GOP calling on the Special Counsel to look into whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch illegally meddled in the Hillary investigation when she met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix and/or instructed Comey to refer to his case as a "matter" rather than an "investigation."

Rather than wasting resources on investigating Trump, the GOP says the special counsel must look into whether former attorney general Loretta Lynch meddled with the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. Comey testified that Lynch told him to downplay the seriousness of the FBI’s email server investigation.

For those who missed it, here is Comey's testimony in which he confirms that Lynch "directed" him to refer to the Hillary email case as a "matter" rather than an 'investigation"...not to mention that ill-advised meeting with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac just days before the Justice Department was set to announce the results of their investigation.

Now, and perhaps because of a recent attack which targeted Republicans and in which the shooter seemed to be fueled by rage from largely fake, anonymously-sourced new stories, it appears that the GOP is finally starting to push back.

"These special counsels have a way of going off the rails,” Rep. Trent Franks (R-Az.) told The Hill. “And the ostensible purpose of the special counsel has now been essentially vitiated and everybody knows that. And so they've got to try to find something to do. In this case, it was almost the intent from the beginning to try to create something out of nothing. And it doesn't work in physics, but in politics it seems to be pretty effective."

"This is the most coordinated communications effort on behalf of the president that we’ve seen in a long time,” said Barry Bennett, a former adviser to Trump. “They need it — it’s tough to fight nameless, faceless quotes from people purposefully twisting these stories on you.”

Trump’s lead outside counsel, Mark Kasowitz responded to the Post story by decrying the “illegal” leaks, which he said had come directly from the FBI.

Jay Sekulow, a new member of Trump’s legal team, went on Fox News Channel to say that the leaks may have come from inside Mueller’s special counsel. Sekulow asked why the FBI is “not sending agents to people’s houses” to put an end to it.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee, which chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has described as the “political arm” of the White House, has led the effort to cast doubt on the special counsel investigation.

Of course, Trump has been fairly direct and open with his feelings about the ongoing "witch hunt."

They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017

You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017

Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, 'bleached' emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017

Meanwhile, as we noted earlier this morning, even Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has grown weary of the constant leaks and what they mean for the credibility of Special Counsel Mueller's investigation....which seems to have prompted him to release the following statement:

"Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous 'officials,' particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.

Of course, it's only a matter of time until the Washington Post uses to the Republican fury to allege guilt...afterall, why would they attempt to fight back if they're innocent?  Surely it can't have anything to do with the barrage of anonymously-sourced, fake news stories released daily with the sole intent of bringing down a Republican President while never producing a shred of actual evidence.

QOTD: "The United States is currently the world’s oldest democracy.

But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history’s most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt, or were overrun by invaders.

The United States is dividing as rarely before. Half the country, mostly liberal America, is concentrated in 146 of the nation’s more than 3,000 counties — in an area that collectively represents less than 10 percent of the U.S. land mass. The other half, the conservative Red states of the interior of America, is geographically, culturally, economically, politically, and socially at odds with Blue-state America, which resides mostly on the two coasts." --Victor Davis Hanson

#ResistanceSummer: Democrats have a very simple plan to save health care, the planet and Communism

Fri, 06/16/2017 - 01:18
By Daniel Greenfield

The Democratic National Committee announced that Resistance Summer would begin in June. James Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders volunteer, delivered by opening fire on Republicans playing baseball.

 Hodgkinson had spent the weeks before the shooting staring at the site of his future attack and working on his laptop. What was he doing on his laptop? Ranting about Trump and Republicans. 

The left-wing terrorist who opened fire on Republicans practicing for a charity baseball game, an event to which they had brought their children, didn’t come up with his own ideas. His Facebook pages were dumpsters rotting with reposted left-wing hate. There was Bill Moyers' Resistance plan along with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Rachel Maddow, Robert Reich and Noam Chomsky.

They helped shape Hodgkinson’s conviction that Republicans had to be destroyed. Or as the title of a Facebook group that he belonged to put it, “Terminate the Republican Party.”

James Hodgkinson did his best in a Virginia park. And he wasn’t a lone lunatic. Not by a long shot.

After the attack, the office of Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received an email reading “One down, 216 to go". Congressman Tom Garrett (R-Va.) needed security after receiving threats reading, "This is how we're going to kill your wife". Other threats described graphic atrocities against his daughters and even his dog. 

Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ.) went to the FBI after phone messages warning, "Martha our sights are set on you, right between your **** eyes" and "Can't wait to **** pull the trigger."

And it didn’t stop at words. 

David Kustoff (R-Tenn.) had his car nearly run off the road and was then threatened. Indivisible Team protests at Dana Rohrabacher's office (R-CA.) ended with a 71-year-old female staffer being injured by the actions of the leftist protesters. 

This campaign of harassment was eventually bound to escalate to assassination. James Hodgkinson just happened to be the first to pull the trigger. But it could have been any of a growing number of leftist activists who had become convinced that Trump was a fascist dictator and that violence was the answer.

The “Resistance” began by invoking an unprecedented crisis that required setting aside democracy and the niceties of political discourse. It escalated quickly to street violence and then to murder. 

The media and the political personalities of the left who have been profitably feeding the crisis claim to disavow Hodgkinson’s tactic of actually shooting Republicans, but they led him to his bloody conclusion.

What made James Hodgkinson believe that stopping the repeal of ObamaCare was a matter of life and death? Or, as he put it, “Republicans Want to Deny Most All Americans Health Care”?

It was Bernie Sanders who claimed that “thousands of Americans would die” if Republicans repealed ObamaCare. “Families will go bankrupt. People will die,” Elizabeth Warren had tweeted.

James Hodgkinson was a big Bernie supporter. And he was a fan of Elizabeth Warren.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, in whose state the shootings happened, had claimed, “People are going to lose lives." Instead of trying to push gun control, he might have revisited his own rhetoric.

Congressman John Lewis claimed that the repeal would kill. Congressman Ruben Gallego insisted that he didn't have to be civil to Republicans because their "policies that are going to kill people".

It’s a short step from accusing Republicans of killing people to suspending civility to wishing them dead.

And Democrat politicians were downright restrained compared to some of their media allies. Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald wanted to see every Congressional Republican who voted for ObamaCare have a family member perish. "It should be their loved ones who die," he ranted.

“The goprs in congress didn’t just send out a tweet wishing for me to face my own death. They actually voted to do it. If people don’t give a damn about the consequences of what they do, they should face those consequences,” Eichenwald wrote in a statement. 

James Hodgkinson was a fan of the Rachel Maddow show. Eichenwald was an MSNBC contributor and his work had been touted by Rachel Maddow. 

Calls for violence against Republicans had become normalized. 

A few days before the attack, the Huffington Post ran a piece calling for executing Trump “and everyone assisting in his agenda”. It has since come down, but a similarly themed piece defending a “violent response” to President Trump is still up. Julius Caesar reimagined as Trump and leftist activists as his heroic assassins made headlines. “Killing Republicans” in neighboring Brooklyn did not. 

“They should be lined up and shot,” Professor John Griffin posted of Republicans over the ObamaCare repeal. Professor Lars Maischak at Frenso State proposed "the execution of two Republicans for each deported immigrant."

And it didn’t end after the shooting.

"If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?" Malcolm Harris, a regular at the New Republic, whose work has appeared at the Washington Post and Salon, inquired.

If Congressional Republicans are indeed killing people, why shouldn’t they be killed? Hodgkinson accepted the left’s premise and took it to its logically murderous conclusion. 

“Noam Chomsky calls the Republican Party the Most Dangerous Organization in Human History!” was one of the messages on his Facebook page. 

According to Chomsky, appearing on Democracy Now with Amy Goodman, Republicans are committed “to the destruction of organized human life on Earth.” Forget health care. Republicans are actually trying to wipe out the species by denying Global Warming.

James Hodgkinson participated in the People’s Climate March. Its theme, like Chomsky’s, was that Trump and Republicans were a threat to the entire planet. 

If that’s true, shouldn’t someone save the planet by doing something about those Republicans?

Hodgkinson was taught by the left that all problems were reducible to Republican evil. He quoted Robert Reich, a Sanders Institute fellow, claiming that the poor economy was due to tax cuts for the rich. 

The Republicans had destroyed the economy, health care and the planet. Someone had to stop them.

“Congressional Republicans Hate Americans & Should All be Voted Out of Office,” James Hodgkinson ranted on Facebook. But even he could see that was not going to happen.

Congressman Scalise had won 74.6% of the vote in his last election. If he couldn’t be voted out, he could be killed. And on his Facebook page, Hodgkinson had displayed a marked hostility to him.

And the rest you can see on cable news.

The left has a long ugly history of priming killers and then playing innocent. James Hodgkinson, like Lee Harvey Oswald, imbibed enough of that sense of urgent crisis that instead of just continuing to attend Occupy Wall Street rallies and anti-Trump marches, instead of just donating a few dollars here and there to leftist causes and politicians, he decided to take their rhetoric seriously. There was nothing wrong with his logic. There was something deeply wrong with those whose ideas he was relying on.

James Hodgkinson took the left’s claims at face value. If Trump is Hitler, if Republicans are fascists, if their policies will kill thousands of people, wipe out the economy and destroy the planet, then Jimmy was just a good member of the “Resistance” fighting to save all human life on earth.

The left can’t quite decide whether its incitement should be taken at face value. Some on the left do. They’re the ones who can be seen calling for the murder of Republicans. Others profit from it, but then disavow the tactics. But for many leftists like James Hodgkinson, these fine distinctions are lost. 

They don’t understand that Bernie Sanders doesn’t really believe that Republicans will kill thousands of people. He’s just saving up for a fourth home. Elizabeth Warren is a millionaire and former Republican who figured out that being a fake class warrior pays even better than being a fake Cherokee. Robert Reich was getting paid $235,791 to teach a class on income inequality at Berkeley.

Hodgkinson was a side effect of Bernie’s three homes, Liz’s presidential ambitions and Bob’s ambitions. The shooting of Congressman Scalise and others on that field was a side effect of the left’s quest for power. And worse still, there are those on the left who are true believers and who really do want a war.

“Republicans are getting what they want,” Markos Moulitsas‏ of DailyKos posted.

But it’s the left that is actually getting what it wanted. All that hate and rage couldn’t be satiated by marches and rallies. It spilled over into street violence, terroristic threats and now terrorism.

Leftist leaders believe that they can contain the violence and channel it into protests, rallies and donations. At worst, there might be the occasional campus riot or street fight. But the Alexandria attack is a warning that the violence that the left is inciting and unleashing cannot be contained for long. 

“Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co,” Hodgkinson ranted. Trump isn’t destroying our democracy. The leftists trying to bring him down are.

The left has whipped up an angry mob and promised them that if they scream and shout enough, President Trump will be forced out of office. They manufactured a crisis and now it’s exploding on them. If they can’t deliver a coup, there will be more shootings like this one. 

The Democrats are sleepwalking into a civil war. They want power, but like leftists from Russia to Cuba, they haven’t seriously contemplated the price that will have to paid for their bloody utopia.

In her “Resistance” video, former Attorney General Lynch spoke of blood, marching and dying. At Eugene Simpson Stadium Park, the 10-year-old son of Congressman Barton huddled under a bench. Congressman Wenstrup, an Iraq War veteran, struggled to provide aid to the wounded Scalise.

That’s what Lynch’s bleeding and dying looks like. This is what the left’s Resistance really looks like. Democrats, liberals and even leftists ought to take a good look to see if that’s what they really want.

LEAK-A-PALOOZA: Five Separate Leaks Dictate That Special Counsel Robert Mueller Must Be Fired or Replaced

Fri, 06/16/2017 - 00:28
The fact that are five -- count 'em, five -- separate leaks from the special counsel's office, all of which are illegal, indicate the Mueller is either incompetent or out-of-control. CNN's report says it all:


Using the Democrats' logic, we need a special counsel to investigate the special counsel.

Or, for a simpler approach, James Comey's wingman Robert Mueller must be replaced. Now. Not tomorrow. Now.

QOTD: "Hillary Clinton, the opponent, has announced she’s joining ‘The Resistance’, the resistance Mark Simone — a militaristic term. If Trump has lost the election and later turned around and said that ‘I am joining the resistance’, that would be a dog whistle for the militias, the right wing fascists, and in fact, we have left wing armed, masked, going around in groups, beating up conservatives, police being told to stand down, so that the left can beat up conservatives." --Ann Coulter

SHOCKER: Reports say special counsel already investigating Trump -- not Loretta Lynch -- for obstruction of justice

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 00:22
That was quick.

With all the crimes we know were committed -- from unmasking Michael Flynn's name, to Loretta Lynch's interference in the 2016 election, to James Comey's leak(s) -- the special counsel is said to be investigating... Donald Trump.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is now investigating whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice into the federal probe of Russian interference in the presidential election last year.

While the FBI had originally said Trump was not being investigated for possible collusion between his campaign associates and Russia, the commander in chief is now under scrutiny for his actions in response to the probe, according to a Washington Post report... Though former FBI Director James Comey previously assured Trump in private that he was not under investigation, officials say that changed days after Trump fired Comey May 9...

...A response from Trump's legal team was sent out moments after the Washington Post report was published. "The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal," said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Kasowitz.
I think a special counsel is warranted; just not Robert Mueller. Mueller, who is the essence of a Beltway insider, has an inherent conflict of interest given his long history as James Comey's wingman. Not to mention having Clinton Foundation donors on his staff, which has discredited Mueller's investigation before it has even begun.

Donald Trump needs to fire the entire special counsel and replace it with people who are really non-partisan. Perhaps -- dare to dream -- people who haven't contributed to either party nor taken blatantly partisan positions.

A mass shooting isn't surprising given the mainstreaming of political violence by Democrat extremists

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 15:55
It's shocking, but not altogether surprising, that a mass-shooting occurred during a Republican Congressional sports outing. Senator Rand Paul, who observed the volley of 50 or 60 shots, said that a "massacre" had been narrowly averted.

If House Majority Whip Steve Scalise's security detail hadn't been present, Paul said, it would have been a slaughter.

"I do believe that without the Capitol Hill police, it would have been a massacre," he said. "We had no defense at all."

This attempted mass shooting isn't surprising given the mainstreaming of political violence by Democrat extremists:

• There's the rhetoric from "academia":

“They should be lined up and shot,” Professor John Griffin posted to his Facebook, according to a screenshot of the post obtained by Campus Reform, even clarifying that he wasn’t being hyperbolic, saying “that’s not hyperbole; blood is on their hands.”
• There's the theater:


• There's Hollywood:


• There's the fascist group laughably called "Antifa":


• There's the media:

Senior Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald wants innocent people to suffer and die in order to prove a point.

Eichenwald said on Twitter Friday night that he hopes every Republican who voted in favor of the American Health Care Act on Thursday sees a family member come down with a serious “long term” illness and lose their insurance before dying. When challenged, Eichenwald doubled down. “I want them to be tortured,” he said of Republicans who supported the AHCA. He added: “I want the [Republicans] who supported this to feel the pain in their own families.”
• There's the world's most famous community organizer, Barack Obama:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama told the audience. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

...At another campaign stop on September 18, 2008, Obama advocated that his supporters “argue with [people], get in their faces”:

...[and d]uring the town hall meeting protests of the summer of 2009, Senior White House adviser David Axelrod and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina told Democrat Senators, “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.”
• There's social media:


It turns out the shooter was a "Bernie Bro."

His Facebook page said to include phrases: "Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” https://t.co/V3sNYt660D

The leaders of the Democrat Party need to speak out against this violent rhetoric. If they fail to do so, it speaks volumes about how radical and anti-American the party has become.

THAT WAS QUICK: Reports Say Mueller Granted Comey Full Immunity Even Before Investigation Began

Tue, 06/13/2017 - 23:56
According to a report published at TruePundit, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has already cut an immunity deal with James Comey.

A high-ranking Justice Department official believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller has granted a complete get-out-of-jail-free-card deal for disgraced FBI Director James Comey: A coveted immunity deal in exchange for cooperating as a key witness.

“The immunity is a done deal,” a Justice Department source said. “Mueller can do whatever he wants. We (Justice) have no say but after many years working criminal cases I know Comey has been given immunity. You can tell by the way he is acting now and the fact that Mueller has kept us in the dark about his investigation.”

Special Counsel spokesman Peter Carr at Justice would not comment when asked to detail the immunity arrangement between Comey and Mueller.
There are at least six reasons Comey would want immunity:

  • Leaking other government documents to third parties including the media.
  • Inconsistencies in testimony that rise to the level or perjury.
  • Any role he played in the illegal surveillance or wiretapping of Trump during the election.
  • Any other crimes Comey may have committed during his tenure as FBI director, including his role in quashing the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
  • His role in unmasking Trump, Trump insiders and other Americans from FISA warrant intelligence.
  • Any violations of FBI employment ethics that would nullify pension benefits.

Thus far, over the course of the utterly fraudulent "Russian Colusion" investigation, Democrats have accidentally uncovered crimes by Obama's attorney general Loretta Lynch and his FBI director James Comey. And, as an added bonus, they may have also instigated brand new investigations of Hillary Clinton's suspicious activities.

So, by all means, let's continue this charade.

FORGET JEFF SESSIONS: Drag Loretta Lynch before Congress to testify right now

Tue, 06/13/2017 - 23:29
By Chris Pandolfo

The wrong attorney general is testifying before Congress today.

The kabuki theater that is Congress’ hearings on Trump’s alleged collusion with the Russians to win the 2016 election has come full circle. This is the issue that inspired Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin to expose the “police state tactics” of the Obama administration and the scandal of Obama’s spying on American citizens. The focus on Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his testimony is misplaced, as the media and Congress ignore allegations of another major Obama administration scandal, one that would clearly show Obama’s Justice Department interfered in the 2016 election to help Hillary Clinton win.

Anonymous sources briefed on James Comey's closed-door testimony before members of Congress told Circa the former FBI director made startling accusations about Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Comey, they said, claimed to have evidence that Lynch agreed to interfere with the criminal investigation into Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton, to prevent any politically damaging criminal prosecution of Clinton from happening.

Comey spoke to lawmakers in a classified setting to discuss sensitive details that could not be shared with the public.

Previously, in a public hearing, Comey told lawmakers that AG Lynch had instructed him to refer to the criminal probe of Clinton as a “matter” rather than an “investigation.” “That concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI's work and that's concerning,” Comey testified, saying that Lynch’s instruction seemed like political spin.

The anonymous sources report that Comey privately informed lawmakers of a second conversation with Lynch just before the email investigation was shut down.

Comey reportedly told lawmakers that he went to Lynch with his concern that she created a conflict of interest by meeting with former President Bill Clinton during the criminal investigation into his wife.

During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.

Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office,” said one source who was briefed. (Emphasis added.)

The attorney general of the United States, Loretta Lynch, a Democratic appointee, was confronted by Comey with evidence that showed she would decline to prosecute the Democratic candidate for president. She then told him to get out of her office. That is what Circa’s sources claim.

FBI Director Comey apparently was made so uncomfortable by Lynch’s behavior that he decided to take the matter into his own hands.

Comey “took that interaction and the fact she had met with Bill Clinton as enough reason to decide he would not allow the Justice Department to decide the fate of the case and instead would go public” with his own assessment that the FBI could not prove Mrs. Clinton intended to violate the law when she transmitted classified information through her private email and therefore should not be criminally charged. Another source said the "tarmac meeting was the public excuse for not going to Lynch when all along there was other evidence that was more concerning to Comey."

The rest is history.

These allegations demand an immediate investigation by Congress. If they are true, the Obama administration interfered with a criminal investigation into the Democratic candidate for president and shielded that candidate from potential prosecution for political purposes – to help her win an election.

President Trump understands the gravity of this report.

A.G. Lynch made law enforcement decisions for political purposes...gave Hillary Clinton a free pass and protection. Totally illegal!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2017

Congress is investigating the wrong scandal. By having Jeff Sessions testify today, by continuing the probe into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russians with no evidence yet produced, Congress is permitting the Obama administration’s potential nefarious, politically motivated acts of injustice to remain in the dark.

Forget Jeff Sessions. Drag Loretta Lynch before Congress and have her testify immediately. Did Loretta Lynch agree to prevent Hillary Clinton from facing prosecution? Did the attorney general tell FBI Director James Comey to leave her office when confronted with evidence that showed a conflict of interest? And was Attorney General Lynch acting on her own, or did she have orders from President Barack Obama to interfere with the investigation and ensure that Hilary Clinton did not suffer political damage during the election?

How do we stop the mainstream media from warping the national narrative? We push back together. With the truth. Be the first to receive CRTV’s free weapon against the worst the media has to offer. Introducing WTF MSM!?
