On dirty cop-Mueller and Rosenstein Collaboration: When are People Going to Admit “The Republicans Got Rolled”

by sundance

{} ~ Attorney Cleta Mitchell appears with Lou Dobbs to discuss Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s plans to leave the DOJ in the coming weeks… About two minutes into this discussion clear-eyed Dobbs asks when people are going to admit the dirty cop-Mueller probe was all about covering-up prior corruption; thereby positioning Cleta Mitchell to outline a specific example of how Speaker Paul Ryan worked against HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes to undermine any investigative inquiry.



Levin Can’t Contain Himself After ‘Pathological Liars’ Pulosi and scumbag/clown-Schumer Respond to Trump


{} ~ Mark Levin has a reputation of being a plain-spoken conservative who cuts to the core of issues… and that’s exactly what he just did on the border security showdown. The news of the week, of course, is that the partial government shutdown continues to drag on. On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed the nation to lay out the case for securing the border, a request that Democrats are resisting. A liberal rebuttal from Speaker of the House Nancy Pulosi and Sen. Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer followed, but it pushed Levin over the edge. Not long after the two Democrats spoke, the radio and television host called in to Fox News and blasted the left for years of feet-dragging on the border issue. “First of all, the president gave an outstanding speech. It was concise. It was compassionate and truly compassionate,” Levin began during his phone interview on fellow commentator Sean Hannity’s program. “He provided the context both in terms of what’s going on in the border, the expense, which is de minimis, and who’s really responsible,” he continued. But Levin was just getting wound up. In his trademark fashion, he went on a well-spoken rant about exactly why many Americans are fed up with liberals on the border issue…



‘We Deserve to Be Punished if We Give in Now,’ Sen. Graham Warns GOP About Border Wall Battle

by Craig Bannister

{} ~ It’ll be the end of the Trump Presidency and the end of their party – and deservedly so – if Republicans give in to Democrats… refusing to fund construction of a border wall, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned his colleagues Tuesday. Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program following President Donald Trump’s address to the nation regarding the threat of illegal immigration and the partial government shutdown over border wall funding, Sen. Graham said the only way Republicans can lose is if they surrender. But, if they do undercut Pres. Trump by giving in, they’ll be finished, Sen. Graham warned: “To my Republican colleagues: This is the best chance we’ll ever have to help President Trump get border wall funding, steel barrier funding, and at the same time, fix the loopholes. “The only way we’ll lose is to give in. If we stand firm, put bills on the table that make sense, we will win this on behalf of the American people. “But, if we undercut the president, that’s the end of his presidency, and the end of our party – and we deserve to be punished if we give in now.”…



Is Rashida Tlaib Guilty of Bigotry?

by Alan M. Dershowitz

{} ~ If Congress were considering legislation prohibiting boycotts directed against gays, women or Muslim owned companies, would Senator commie-Bernie Sanders be arguing that such a ban would violate the First Amendment?… If Congress were considering legislation prohibiting companies from boycotting majority Muslim countries, would Rashida Tlaib be accusing its supporters of dual loyalty? American laws have long dealt with discrimination based on sexual orientation, race, gender and national origin. Our laws prohibited compliance with the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in the 1930’s and the Arab boycotts of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Now Congress is considering legislation dealing with companies that boycott only the nation state of the Jewish people, and only Jews within Israel. To single out only the “Jew among nations,” and not the dozens of far more serious violators of human rights is bigotry pure and simple, and those who support BDS [boycotts divestments and sanctions against Israel] only against Israel are guilty of bigotry. Some supporters of BDS claim that it is a protest tactic designed to put pressure on Israel to change its policies. That is not what the leaders of BDS say. Their goal is the elimination of Israel and its replacement by a Palestinian state “from the river to the sea.”* So long as these anti-BDS statutes do not prohibit advocacy of such boycotts, but focus instead on the commercial activities themselves – namely the economic boycotts – there are no serious freedom of speech concerns. The First Amendment protects freedom of speech, not freedom to discriminate economically based on invidious classifications. “Always a view, never a Jew.” Similar advertisements were directed against Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans and other minorities. These advertisements would be illegal today despite the fact that they take the form of words. The First Amendment permits a hotel owner to advocate a return to “gentiles only,” or “whites only” hotels, but it does not protect the act of discrimination itself or boycotting based on religion or national origin…


Red Lobster Caves to Left-Wing Blacklist Campaign, Pulls Ads from Tucker Carlson’s Show

by Justin Caruso

{} ~ Restaurant chain Red Lobster is the latest company to cave to pressure from the far-left blacklisting campaign against Tucker Carlson… announcing Tuesday that they would no long advertise on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. The Wrap reports that Red Lobster confirmed their removal of ads from Tucker Carlson’s prime time show, saying in a statement, “Red Lobster’s advertising buying guidelines reflect our core values and commitment to supporting programming that represents the highest standards of good taste, fair practice and objectivity.” “We reserve the right to make changes to our purchases when the dialogue is no longer in line with our criteria.”Red Lobster is the latest company to pull ads from Carlson’s show. He faced an ad boycott last month over comments criticizing American immigration policy, and he is once again in the crosshairs of the far-left over comments he made about many women who do not want to marry men who earn less than them…


House Dems Introduce Latest Anti-Gun Bill

by Political Editors: Like clock work, House Democrats once again revealed their opposition to Americans’ Second Amendment rights and introduced their latest effort at “gun control.” Theatrically staged for the eighth anniversary of a madman’s attack that nearly killed her, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) unveiled legislation that would require “universal” background checks for any gun purchase. “It’s time to address our gun violence epidemic, and this new Congress will not sit silent,” Giffords declared.

ABC News reports that the bill “would require background checks on the sale of any firearm and expand existing background checks to cover anyone attempting to buy firearms online, commercially or at gun shows, while providing exceptions for law enforcement and the transfer of guns between friends and family members.”

The obviously problem here is that almost all legal gun purchases are already subject to background checks and the supposed gun-show loophole has been demonstrated to be largely a myth. Add to that the fact that the vast majority of criminals obtain their firearms illegally, and we’re left wondering how this new legislation would prevent any actual crimes. The fact is it doesn’t. On the contrary, it’s simply political theater. ~The Patriot Post
