BUSTED: Socialist Andrew Gillum Pays $5,000 in Fines For Ethics Violations – After Denying Wrongdoing

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 19:49

Former Tallahassee Mayor and failed socialist candidate for Governor of Florida Andrew Gillum has opted to end the lengthy ethics investigation into him by paying $5000 in fines, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Gillum illegally accepted numerous gifts from lobbyists during his time as Mayor of Florida’s capitol city, including trips to the Caribbean, ticket to the hit Broadway musical Hamilton and other luxury items. He spent the entire campaign against pro-Trump Republican nominee Ron DeSantis denying that he ever did anything wrong and claiming that he would be vindicated.

However, the settlement reached with the Florida Ethics Commission does not mean Gillum was cleared of wrongdoing… only that he was willing to pay a $5,000 fine to end the investigation before it dug any deeper into his alleged misdeeds. He also agreed to a count of accepting a gift from a lobbyist worth more than $100, which included a private, nearly 2-hour long boat cruise around Manhattan.

In an email to his supporters, sent through his Forward Florida political committee claiming that “facts matter” and that the Ethics Commission agreed.

 

 

This is a blatantly dishonest ploy by Gillum, a rabid anti-Trump Magaphobe who is working to register throngs of felons across the state of Florida in an attempt to oust President Trump from the White House in 2020. He neglects to tell his supporters that he paid a $5,000 fine and was found guilty of accepting gifts from lobbyists.

FACTS DON’T MATTER IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT… especially one with a socialist streak.

College Speaker Says Putting a Child on a Diet is Akin to Sexual Molestation, Compares Personal Trainers to Nazis

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 19:18

A “fat and body positive” sex therapist who recently gave a speech at St. Olaf College in Minnesota is making waves after comparing personal trainers to Nazis and childhood diets to sexual molestation.

The speaker, Sonalee Rashatwa, made headlines in 2018 for declaring that being thin is a white supremacist beauty ideal while speaking at a college in Vermont.

“I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex,” Rashatwar declared at her Minnesota speech. “I experience diet culture as a form of assault because it impacts the way that I experience my body.”

Her speech  on “radical fat liberation” was organized by St. Olaf College’s Wellness Center, Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and Center for Equity and Inclusion.

“Tonight we’re gonna start by talking about how to politicize our definition of body image, because often we actually get stuck thinking of it from a white supremacist lens,” Rashatwar said.

Rashatwa’s biography on her website reads, “Sonalee Rashatwar (she/they) LCSW MEd is an award-winning social worker, sex therapist, adjunct lecturer, and grassroots organizer. Based in Philly (licensed in NJ, and PA license is pending), she is a fat queer non-binary therapist working as a sexual violence crisis counselor, specializing in treating sexual trauma, body image issues, racial or immigrant identity issues, and South Asian family systems, while offering fat and body positive sexual healthcare.”

The self-described “Fat Sex Therapist” went on to say, “We should be critical of the use of science and the production of knowledge to continue promoting this idea that certain bodies are fit, able, and desirable…is it my fatness that causes my high blood pressure, or is it my experience of weight stigma?”

“She then connected the science suggesting that obesity is unhealthy to Nazism, saying that ‘fatphobic’ science is ‘often actually eugenic science….eugenic science is Nazi science,'” Campus Reform reports.

“I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor,” Rashatwar said. After making this claim, she added that the shooting is “a clear communication that there’s still an idealized body. Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor…might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.”

WATCH: Joe Biden Says Illegal Aliens Are Already ‘American Citizens’

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 19:01

Speaking at an event for the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in 2014, former-Vice President Joe Biden asserted that he believes illegal aliens are “already American citizens.”

Biden is expected to announce a 2020 run on Thursday.

In March 2014, Biden said that he believes the 11 million people who snuck into this country are “already Americans.”

“You know, 11 million people live in the shadows. I believe they’re already American citizens,” Biden said. “These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view.”

Biden also voted for Ronald Reagan’s “amnesty” bill that granted legal residency to millions of illegal aliens in 1986.

Clinton-Era State Department Employee Pleads Guilty to Conspiring With Chinese Agents

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 18:36

The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that a former State Department employee who also happened to be a Clinton appointee, pleaded guilty to conspiring with foreign agents. 

The FBI arrested Candace Marie Claiborne on March 28th, 2017. She made her first appearance in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia the following day.

According to the DOJ, Candace Marie Claiborne, a former employee of the U.S. Department of State, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States, by lying to law enforcement and background investigators, and hiding her extensive contacts with, and gifts from, agents of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), in exchange for providing them with internal documents from the U.S. State Department.

Via the DOJ:

“Candace Marie Claiborne traded her integrity and non-public information of the United States government in exchange for cash and other gifts from foreign agents she knew worked for the Chinese intelligence service,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.  “She withheld information and lied repeatedly about these contacts.  Violations of the public’s trust are an affront to our citizens and to all those who honor their oaths.  With this guilty plea we are one step closer to imposing justice for these dishonorable criminal acts.”

“Candace Claiborne broke the public trust when she accepted gifts and money from foreign officials, and then lied about it to State Department background investigators,” said U.S. Attorney Liu. “The United States will continue to seek to hold accountable those who abuse their positions of trust.”

“Candace Claiborne was entrusted with Top Secret information when she purposefully misled federal investigators about her repeated interactions with foreign contacts which violated her oath of office as a State Department employee,” said Assistant Director McNamara.  “The FBI will continue to investigate individuals who fail to report foreign contacts, which is a key indicator of potential insider threats posed by those in positions of public trust.”

“Our close working relationship with the FBI and the Department of Justice resulted in the conviction of Candace Claiborne who violated the public trust and damaged our national security,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary Colón.  “Diplomatic Security will continue working with our law enforcement partners to vigorously defend the interests and security of the United States of America.”

Recall, Candace Marie Claiborne had a TOP SECRET security clearance and provided internal State Department documents to Chinese agents in exchange for gifts and benefits.

Claiborne also noted in her journal that she could “Generate 20k in 1 year” working with one of the PRC agents, who, shortly after wiring $2,480 to Claiborne, tasked her with providing internal U.S. Government analyses on a U.S.-Sino Strategic Economic Dialogue that had just concluded.

Claiborne, who confided to a co-conspirator that the PRC agents were “spies,” willfully misled State Department background investigators and FBI investigators about her contacts with those agents, the plea documents state. After the State Department and FBI investigators contacted her, Claiborne also instructed her co-conspirators to delete evidence connecting her to the PRC agents, the DOJ said.

Sounds just like Hillary Clinton!

Judge Randolph Moss, an Obama appointee, scheduled the sentencing for July 9th, 2019 and ordered Claiborne to be detained pending the sentencing, but will self-surrender for said detention on June 5, 2019, the DOJ said in a press release.

The Department of Justice website also outline what kind of time Claiborne could be facing with these charges:

The maximum penalty for a person convicted of obstructing an official proceeding is 20 years in prison. The maximum penalty for making false statements to the FBI is five years in prison.

Kim Kardashian West Defends Her Relationship With President Trump (VIDEO)

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 18:34

Kim Kardashian defended her relationship with President Trump during a CNN interview.

Kardashian West appeared on CNN’s ‘The Van Jones Show’ to discuss how meeting with President Trump inspired her to become a lawyer.  Van Jones asked Kardashian West how she feels about working with the Trump Administration.

In June 2018, President Trump commuted the prison sentence of Alice Marie Johnson.  Johnson was serving a life sentence for a non-violent cocaine trafficking conviction.  President Trump’s decision to commute Johnson’s sentence came a week after Kardashian West pleaded Johnson’s case to Trump during a meeting about prison reform.

After Johnson was freed from prison, Kardashian West developed the desire to become an attorney in order to help further reform the criminal justice system.

Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, has a highly publicized friendship with President Trump.

SWAMP LOVE: Never-Trump Neocon McCain Family to Support Joe Biden in 2020

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 18:22

The McCain family, who unfortunately have not yet drifted into irrelevance, will be supporting former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race.

His daughter, Meghan McCain, plays a Republican on television on the View, but is openly hostile towards President Donald Trump.

The Washington Examiner reports, “sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on ‘The View,’ will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.”

Another source told the Examiner that “they expected Meghan McCain to speak out in favor of Biden should he get the nomination, but a Cindy McCain endorsement could come sooner.

Biden is expected to announce his run on Thursday. He is also expected to have strong support from the swamp — and clearly it is already starting.

Army Veteran Shreds Rep. Ilhan Omar Over Her Anti-American ‘Black Hawk Down’ Tweet

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 17:56

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat and and one of the first Muslim women in Congress, declared in a 2017 post on Twitter that American troops were the villains in the “Black Hawk Down” incident in Somalia.

Omar, a Somali native, wrote in response to a post that said the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu as the worst terrorist attack in Somali history. “In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan,” Omar wrote.

In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan https://t.co/wrFocrZymQ

— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) October 16, 2017

The lawmaker was roundly criticized for her condemnation of U.S. forces in the Black Hawk Down incident, which was made into a Hollywood movie. In the battle, 18 Americans were killed and 73 wounded.

Sergeant Major Kyle E. Lamb, a 21-year veteran with U.S. Army Special Operations who served in Mogadishu, Somalia and Iraq, blasted Omar on Tuesday.

“I take special exception to Omar’s disgusting comments because I served in the Battle of Mogadishu, which was later portrayed in the movie ‘Black Hawk Down,’ ” he wrote in The Federalist.

He lays out what really happened during the battle, saying warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid “and his henchmen spread terror and death.”

Then he gets to Omar.

“I am thankful Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation. I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect, like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality,” he writes.

The simple truth is that Omar enjoys the fruits of American combat deaths, yet she can’t even bring herself to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice that was made on her behalf, either as a Somali or an American. Her clan didn’t stand a chance against Aidid and Habar Gidirs, so I don’t blame her for leaving. But I do blame her for attacking those of us who had zero personal interest or investment in her nation for doing our jobs on behalf of our country. And I blame her for smearing American servicemen because we answered the call of our nation to address the violent barbarism of hers.

Unlike Omar, I’m not a politician. I don’t have power or influence. I don’t have a vote in Congress or the ability to direct America’s foreign policy. I’m just one of the men who strapped it on as a member of Task Force Ranger and went into harm’s way to help bring peace and security to her and her people. And let me tell you, she missed a helluva fight.

Michael Cohen Walks Back Parts of Guilty Plea in Recorded Phone Call to Tom Arnold, ‘It’s a Lie’ (AUDIO)

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 17:17

Trump’s former lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen walked back parts of his guilty plea in a 36-minute recorded phone call to left-wing actor Tom Arnold.

Tom Arnold, a rabid Trump hater who first spoke with Cohen in June, gave the recording to The Wall Street Journal for review.

“You would think that you would have folks, you know, stepping up and saying, ‘You know what, this guy’s lost everything,’” Cohen said during the March 25 call, recorded without his knowledge by Tom Arnold.

Cohen, who was convicted for lying to Congress, then slammed Trump and blamed the president for his problems.

“My family’s happiness, and my law license,” Mr. Cohen continued. “I lost my business…my insurance, my bank accounts, all for what? All for what? Because Trump, you know, had an affair with a porn star? That’s really what this is about.”

Lanny Davis, Cohen’s Clinton-linked lawyer, said: “Michael has taken responsibility for his crimes and will soon report to prison to serve his sentence. While he cannot change the past, he is making every effort to reclaim his life and do right by his family and country. He meant no offense by his statements.”

Cohen walked back parts of his guilty plea related to tax evasion and the home equity line of credit on his home – Cohen pleaded guilty to 8 charges brought by thugs in the SDNY and also admitted to 5 counts of tax evasion related to his taxi medallion business.

“There is no tax evasion,” Cohen said on the call. “And the HELOC? I have an 18% loan-to-value on my home. How could there be a HELOC issue? How? Right?…It’s a lie.”

Cohen claimed on the call that he pleaded guilty because “they had me on campaign finance” and prosecutors were gunning for his wife.

The campaign finance violation Cohen pleaded to was actually a non-crime.

The truth is Michael Cohen’s home and office would not have been raided last April if not for his association with Donald Trump.

Rosenstein authorized Mueller’s thugs to raid Cohen’s home and seized countless documents and emails going back several years in order to take down President Trump.

Clinton fixer Lanny Davis swooped in and became Cohen’s lawyer last summer — Cohen then began attacking President Trump and called him a “racist” and a “con man.”

Michael Cohen is scheduled to report to prison on May 6th to begin his 36 month sentence.

Sri Lanka Terrorists Were WEALTHY! Jihad Is NOT Driven By Poverty – Another Hoax Contrived by Democrats

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 16:55

Democrats love to tell us that Jihad is driven by poverty, but the truth is, jihad is only driven by Sharia. Period. Full stop.

Case in point: Sri Lanka’s Wealthy Jihadi Bros

EXCLUSIVE: First pictures of 'middle class' suicide bomber brothers who calmly walked into Sri Lanka's five star hotels and murdered innocents having breakfast : DAILY MAIL#SriLanka #News #Lk #Lka #SriLankaBlast pic.twitter.com/e4UhVlGpuS

Wealthy brothers Inshaf and Ilham Ibrahim calmly walked into the luxury Shangri-La and Cinnamon Grand hotels and detonated their vests as guests were eating breakfast.

Their attacks claimed the lives of at least 41 foreigners, including eight British holidaymakers – three of whom were children.

Hours later, as police raided their mansion in an exclusive neighbourhood of Colombo, Ilham’s pregnant wife Fatima blew herself up, killing her three children and three officers.

It is widely known that Islamist killers are often educated and come from wealthy backgrounds.
Killing in the name of Islam has nothing to do with poverty.

Remember this the next time someone on the left tries to equate poverty and jihad.

SHOWDOWN: White House Plans to Fight House Subpoena of Former White House Counsel Don McGahn by Asserting Executive Privilege

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 01:40

The White House is planning on fighting the House subpoena of former White House counsel Don McGahn and other aides by asserting executive privilege over their testimony.

According to sources who spoke to CNN, the discussion between McGahn’s lawyers and the Judiciary Committee are not that far along yet and other measures are being considered.

The White House will fight the McGahn subpoena and all subpoenas which could collide with executive privilege, reported Fox News.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to publicly testify next month.

Nadler said that Don McGahn is a “critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.”

According to Mueller’s report, President Trump asked Don McGahn to supposedly lie about reports that he ordered him to fire Mueller. Mueller was never even fired and Trump insists he never said anything like that to McGahn, but Nadler and the Dems are pursuing him anyway.

“The Special Counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Nadler said. “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.”

Mr. McGahn was requested to appear before the House Judiciary Committee on May 21st with a May 7 deadline to provide the panel with documents related to Mueller’s probe, reported Fox News.

“His [McGahn’s] testimony will help shed further light on the President’s attacks on the rule of law, and his attempts to cover up those actions by lying to the American people and requesting others do the same,” Nadler said.

Nadler hit back on Tuesday and said, “[T]he moment for the White House to assert some privilege to prevent this testimony from being heard has long since passed. I suspect that President Trump and his attorneys know this to be true as a matter of law — and that this evening’s reports, if accurate, represent one more act of obstruction by an Administration desperate to prevent the public from talking about the President’s behavior,” Nadler said. “The Committee’s subpoena stands. I look forward to Mr. McGahn’s testimony.”

Nadler on WH saying it will work to stop fmr WH Counsel McGahn from testifying. Nadler says “the moment for the White House to assert some privilege to prevent this testimony from being heard has long since passed.”

The Cartels Control Our Border: Surveillance Video Shows Heavily Armed Men Escorting Illegal Aliens Across US Border

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 00:30

The cartels control our border.

Customs Border and Protection released surveillance video showing heavily armed men illegally escorting migrants across the US border into Arizona.

Border Patrol told Fox News that this is an unusual event, however they fear it will become the new norm and will lead to violence.

The video shows several armed men in full tactical gear carrying firearms while escorting a woman and her 8-year-old child across the border. The illegal alien and her son then turned themselves into border patrol.

CBP posted the surveillance video with the caption: Cameras observed armed men escorting a mother and her 8-year-old son to the int’l boundary west of Lukeville, AZ. The armed men dropped off the pair in an area commonly used by smugglers to bring large groups of Central Americans into the country illegally.

There is a major crisis at the US-Mexico border and Congress is doing NOTHING to stop the record surge of illegal aliens.

Border apprehensions of illegal aliens entering the United States in the Rio Grande Valley sector has already surpassed 2018’s year-end total, the U.S. Border Patrol says.

In the first seven months of the fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, more than 164,000 migrants have been apprehended or turned themselves in and applied for asylum in the sector, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Agents in the sector made 162,262 apprehensions in all of the fiscal 2018 year.

Armed Mexican soldiers also recently disarmed and detained two US soldiers on the Texas side of the border.

Now heavily armed men in tactical gear are bringing illegal aliens into the US – Instead of stopping this surge of illegals, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies actually arrested an American citizen who was the leader of a vigilante group detaining aliens who illegally crossed over into the US.

The US government is refusing to uphold its basic duty to protect the borders from invaders.

Stunning: European Reporter Reveals Trump-Russia-Collusion Hoax Has Its Origins with Soros-Funded Ukrainian Activist Group

Wed, 04/24/2019 - 00:20

The Russiagate affair began with documents released by groups funded by billionaire activist George Soros, it now emerges. Now it is clear that under Barack Obama, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev worked closely with Soros-related groups to compile opposition research on the Trump campaign.

Guest post by Collin McMahon

Several U.S. media outlets have reported on the Ukrainian origins of the Russiagate hoax, including Epoch Times, The Hill and Gateway Pundit. The Epoch Times reported on April 10, 2019, that the charges against ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort originated with Ukrainian Representative Serhiy Leshenko and Artem Sytnyk, director of Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), who revealed documents on kickbacks to Manafort during the Presidency of pro-Russian president Victor Yanukovych.

Serhiy Leshenko (pictured above) presented these ‘Black Ledger’ documents to the public on March 21, 2017 in the Soros-funded Ukraine Crisis Media Center, linking Manafort to illegal kickbacks totaling $12.7 million and even seeking to blame him for the deaths of protestors on Maidan Square 2014. The Ukrainian “anti-corruption” investigators even went so far as to hack the phones and text messages of Paul Manafort‘s daughters.

The Ukraine Crisis Media Center was founded in March 2014 by the Ukraine government and George Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation to give reporting on the Ukraine conflict the ‘correct’ spin. Soros has founded media lobby groups all over the world modeled on Media Matters for American, which he founded with John Podesta after the Lewinsky scandal nearly brought down Bill Clinton.

Leshenko provided this info to Clinton campaign staffer Alexandra Chalupa, as Epoch Times reports, who then passed this info on to Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff. Isikoff broke the story on Yahoo on Aug. 18, 2016, one of the first public mentions of purported “collusion with Russia” by the Trump team. Manafort had to step down as Trump’s campaign manager the next day.

Chalupa also passed the Black Ledger info on to Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, who passed them on to staffer Nellie Ohr. Ohr passed the info on to her husband Bruce Ohr, Epoch Times reports.  On May 30, 2016, Nellie Ohr sent an email to Bruce Ohr and Justice Department staffers under the subject line “Reported Trove of Documents on Ukrainian Party of Regions’ ‘Black Cashbox.’”


Alexandra Chalupa with her attorney Michael Avenatti

Documentation regarding the Party of Regions’ Black Ledger “has now seemingly found its way to NABU, the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau,” the e-mail stated, citing the source for the Black Ledger documents as former First Deputy Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Viktor Trepak.

Bruce Ohr then used this Soros-derived info to begin the Justice Department surveillance of the Trump campaign code-named “Crossfire Hurricane”.

George Soros had invested billions in Ukraine before the conflict broke out 2014, and was one of the primary players in the conflict with his nemesis Vladimir Putin. “With his Open Society Foundations, Soros was not only instrumental in helping bring down the government in Kiev, he also stands to make a sizeable profit out of Ukraine, especially thanks to his close ties to the new Poroshenko government. In January of this year, he met privately several times with the Ukrainian leadership,” neopresse wrote in 2015.

On April 28, 2016, Chalupa and Isikoff appeared on a panel to discuss their research on Manafort with 68 Ukrainian journalists in a program called the Open World Leadership Center, sponsored by the Library of Congress, which is closely connected to the Soros Foundations.

NABU and the Obama government were working closely with Soros NGO Anti-Corruption Action Centre (AntAC) in Ukraine, as John Solomon reports on The Hill. When Ukrainian prosecutors investigated AntAC over a missing $4.4 million in U.S. funding, they were told to stand down by Obama officials.

When the new prosecutor general Yuri Lutsenko went to meet Obama Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, he says he was stunned when the ambassador “gave me a list of people whom we should not prosecute.”

“It turns out AntAC was co-funded by the Obama administration and liberal mega-donor George Soros. And it was collaborating with the FBI agents investigating then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s business activities with pro-Russian figures in Ukraine”, Solomon writes.

“The implied message to Ukraine’s prosecutors was clear: Don’t target AntAC in the middle of an America presidential election in which Soros was backing Hillary Clinton to succeed another Soros favorite, Barack Obama, Ukrainian officials said.”

According to donor disclosure records, AntAC received 59 percent of its nearly $1.7 million budget since 2012 from U.S. budgets tied to State and Justice, Solomon reports, or $1 million, and nearly $290,000 from Soros’s International Renaissance Foundation.

Ukrainian law enforcement officials have tried to share their information on collusion between Obama officials, the Clinton campaign, Soros NGOs and Ukrainian government with the Justice Department, so far unsuccessfully, Solomon writes. Deputy Head of the Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Department Kostiantyn Kulyk told Solomon: “We were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States… However, the [U.S.] ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa. She didn’t explicitly deny our visa, but also didn’t give it to us.”

“Ukrainian officials say they don’t want to hand the evidence to FBI agents working in Ukraine because they believe the bureau has a close relationship with the NABU and the U.S. Embassy“, Solomon writes. “It is no secret in Ukrainian political circles that the NABU was created with American help and tried to exert influence during the U.S. presidential election,” Kulyk told him.

U.S.-Ukraine corruption and collusion goes all the way up to the Obama White House, as Solomon reports. “Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, who managed U.S.-Ukraine relations for the Obama administration. Biden’s son served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings.” Records show that that Vice President Biden pressured Ukrainian officials in March 2016 to fire the prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of Burisma Holdings and who planned to interview Hunter Biden about the financial transfers, according to Peter Schweizer in “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends”.

Jones asserted that President Trump must stand up for those who helped him — whether it’s Assange or his supporters who are being deplatformed across the internet.

A chorus of “Free Assange” rang out as passerbys joined in.

Who Red-Pilled Cher? Left-wing Nut Questions Loopy Bernie Sanders After She Sided with Trump Last Week …Then Deletes It!

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 23:21

For months Cher has attacked President Donald Trump on a regular basis on her Twitter account.

Then last week the liberal mouthpiece, singer and actress had a rare moment of lucidity tweeting about the insanity of the Democrat Party’s plan for open borders.

On Monday morning Trump tweeted Cher with his approval.

I finally agree with @Cher! pic.twitter.com/i5acSgUrCk

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2019

Now this…
Cher questioned Socialist darling Bernie Sanders for urging voting rights for rapists and murderers.

Sadly, Cher was prog-shamed and took down the tweet.
The uber-leftist forfeited common sense for relief from the far left Twitter mob.

Cher got prog-shamed into deleting her slam on Bernie. Will anything remain of the Left after they eat each other alive ahead of the next election? pic.twitter.com/G5SwIRZHCE

Nervous, John? Ex-CIA Chief John Brennan Viciously Attacks Trump – Accuses Trump of ‘Obstructing Justice to Survive Politically’

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 22:47

Nervous, John?

Former CIA Chief John Brennan on Tuesday continued his vicious attacks against President Trump.

Brennan accused Trump of “living in constant fear of being exposed as a fraud,” and said the President had to “obstruct justice to survive politically.”

BRENNAN: Just imagine if we had a President who did not live in constant fear of being exposed as a fraud, who did not have to obstruct justice to survive politically, and who had the intelligence, integrity, and leadership skills to address America’s many important challenges….

Just imagine if we had a President who did not live in constant fear of being exposed as a fraud, who did not have to obstruct justice to survive politically, and who had the intelligence, integrity, and leadership skills to address America’s many important challenges….

— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) April 23, 2019

Brennan is nervous and projecting because his fingerprints are all over Spygate and Trump recently said in a tweet that it’s time to turn the tables and bring justice to people who have committed serious crimes…like spying or treason.

John Brennan also beat the impeachment drum on Saturday and claimed Mueller’s report showed that Trump colluded with Russia and obstructed justice.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) announced in March that according to a high level source, John Brennan insisted Hillary’s fake Russia dossier be included in the Intelligence Report.

Brennan perjured himself in a May 2017 testimony when he said that he did not include Hillary’s phony dossier in the IC report.

There is plenty of evidence to the contrary and Senator Rand Paul said Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

Trump Meets with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Hours After He Lashed Out at the Social Media Platform for Censoring Conservatives

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 21:49

President Donald Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in the White House on Tuesday just hours after he lashed out at the far left social media platform.

Great meeting this afternoon at the @WhiteHouse with @Jack from @Twitter. Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue! pic.twitter.com/QnZi579eFb

A study in February found that Twitter censors conservatives over liberals at a 21:1 ratio.

In July 2018 The Gateway Pundit reported that a study by the leftist website VICE News found that Twitter is censoring top pro-Trump lawmakers.   Twitter is targeting pro-Trump Republican lawmakers Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and John Ratcliffe with the same shadowbanning technique.

Twitter is also censoring prominent pro-Trump accounts including: Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, Paul Joseph Watson, TGP’s Jim Hoft, TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks and Laura Loomer among others.

Last year Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told the Daily Caller Foundation on Wednesday he is considering filing a FEC complaint over Twitter’s preferential treatment of liberals versus its censoring of prominent conservatives.

In July there was even video proof that President Trump’s Twitter page is being censored.

Gateway Pundit contributor Cristina Laila received a notice in 2018 that her tweet violated Pakistani law.
How does that happen?

The President has over 60 million followers on his account but rarely does he receive more than 20,000 retweets or 100,000 likes on his tweets.

Of course, he is being shadowbanned.

Today Trump met with Jack Dorsey.

The Hill reported:

President Trump met Tuesday at the White House with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who leads the social media platform used and criticized by the commander in chief.

The meeting came just hours after the president lashed out at Twitter, reiterating his allegations that the company is discriminating against him and other conservatives.

“Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names-over 100 [million]. But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games,” Trump wrote Tuesday morning in a pair of tweets.

BREAKING: Treasury Department Denies Dem Trump Taxes Demand For Second Time

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 21:45

The Treasury Department on Tuesday missed a second Democrat deadline to provide President Trump’s tax returns.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the department cannot act on the request “unless and until it is determined to be consistent with law.”

Mnuchin said the department should provide the House Ways and Means Committee with a decision by May 6th, The Hill reported.

-REWIND-

A couple weeks ago, the Treasury Department decided it would not turn over Trump’s tax returns by the April 10 deadline (the first deadline) set by Chairman Richard Neal on the Ways and Means Committee.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin previously that he will consult with the DOJ on the request.

“The Committee’s request raises serious issues concerning constitutional scope of Congressional investigative authority” Mnuchin previously said in his letter to Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA).

The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA), sent a letter to the IRS last Wednesday demanding President Trump’s tax returns for 2013 through 2018 as well as for several of Trump’s businesses.

“We’re under audit,” Trump told reporters a couple weeks ago. “Despite what people said and we’re working that out — I’m always under audit it seems — I’ve been under audit for many years because the numbers are big and guess when you have a name, you’re audited.”

“Until such time that I’m not under audit, I would not be inclined to do that,” Trump said.

Currently there is no law requiring a presidential candidate release their tax returns, but the Democrats don’t care about laws — they want to harass President Trump.

This legal battle over Trump’s taxes could find its way to the Supreme Court.
