.Austin bomber recorded 25-minute confession’ to his deadly crimes, police say

by foxnews.com

{ foxnews.com } ~ Mark Anthony Conditt, the man linked to the deadly bombings that rocked Austin, Texas… and surrounding areas over the past month, recorded a 25-minute-long “confession” to his crimes, police said late Wednesday. Officers located the recording, in which Conditt, 23, described creating seven devices, including one he blew up to kill himself, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference. The recording was made on a phone, which was found in the suspect’s possession following the confrontation with police. Conditt described the bombs “with a level of specificity,” including their differences, Manley said. In the recording, the suspect did not mention “anything about terrorism, nor does he mention anything about hate,” the police chief said. The message is rather “the outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life.”… http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/03/21/austin-bomber-recorded-25-minute-confession-to-his-deadly-crimes-police-say.html

McCabe and Rosenstein Ran SECRET DEM PROBE To Find DIRT on AG SESSIONS

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ It seems that forcing AG Jeff Sessions to recuse himself wasn’t enough for dirty cops and some Democrat Senators… they wanted to find dirt on him to either have him removed from office or use it to control him. It only stands to reason, that scumbags attempting to do that to the President would abuse their power to negate every threat. How were they to know Sessions would be such a do-nothing on his own – or is he? It is possible that they found something and that part of the story just hasn’t leaked out yet. A year ago McCabe was running a secret investigation into whether AG Sessions had been truthful when testifying before Congress regarding contacts with Russians. Of course, once an investigation is opened it can quickly morph into anything a dirty cop wants to look at. Mueller, Rosenstein and McCabe have already proven that. Democrats, most prominently the disgraced former Senator from Minnesota, groper Al Franken, along with mush-mouth Patrick “is he drunk” Leahy (D-VT), repeatedly accused Sessions of misleading them in congressional hearings, including his confirmation hearings. They called for an investigation in a March 2017 letter to the FBI asking that they investigate “all contacts” Sessions may have had with Russians, and “whether any laws were broken in the course of those contacts or in any subsequent discussion of whether they occurred.” Dirty cop McCabe was all too willing to give them one…



Nearly 200 Busted in $3.7-Million Food-Stamp Fraud Operation

by judicialwatch.org

{ judicialwatch.org } ~ More than a year after the liar-nObama administration slammed American taxpayers with a record-high tab… to provide an unprecedented number of people with food stamps, the fraud continues full-throttle in the bloated welfare program. Authorities in north Florida arrested nearly 200 people for operating a sophisticated ring in which millions of dollars in food stamps were fraudulently exchanged for cash and drugs. Keep in mind that food stamps—renamed by the liar-nObama administration Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to eliminate stigma—are designed to help nourish the nation’s most needy. For years Judicial Watch has reported extensively on the rampant fraud in the program that cost U.S. taxpayers a bewildering $80.4 billion in one year to provide a record 46 million people with the welfare benefit during the liar-nObama tenure. Even then, a federal audit revealed that many who didn’t qualify for food stamps received them under a special “broad-based” eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements. The expansion was part of the former president’s mission to eradicate “food insecure households” in the U.S. To accomplish it, the administration spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns to recruit more food-stamp recipients, even doling out hefty cash rewards to local governments that signed up the most people. One state even bragged about a $5 million performance bonus it got from the feds for its “swift processing of applications.” Not surprisingly, the food stamp program became a hotbed of fraud and corruption. Recipients use social media to illegally sell and buy food stamps online and others use the welfare benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors, according to a federal audit that also says some trade food stamps for reduced amounts of cash…



Trump Will Not Get Any Funding for the Wall

by Keith Koffle

{ whitehousedossier.com } ~ President Trump will not achieve his most high-profile promise, a wall on the Mexican border… because Congress is finalizing a $1.3 trillion spending package that includes no money for it. The president should keep his promise and veto the bill. It’s an insult not just to him, but to the millions of people who voted for him. I don’t know whether an actual wall is the best solution to the problem. But it is what was promised. Unless it was just for laughs. And votes. Trump sought $25 billion for the wall and is getting $1.6 billion instead to put something on the border. But it won’t be a wall. Maybe some “Do Not Trespass” or “Beware of the Dog” signs…



Sociopath Austin Bomber a Self-Solver

by Nate Jackson: In what explosive investigators typically call a “self-solver,” the man believed to be responsible for the recent string of bombings in Austin, Texas, blew himself up early this morning as police closed in on his vehicle. As with all mass killers seeking fame, we won’t name the 24-year-old white male perpetrator. Since March 2, he’s responsible for killing two people and injuring four with four bombs, including one triggered by a trip wire. A fifth bomb exploded Tuesday without incident at a FedEx facility near Austin, and an unexploded sixth device was discovered at another FedEx distribution center. As Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted, “More work needs to be done to ensure no more bombs had been sent before he died.” Part of the terror of the whole thing was that the killer attacked homes through the modern convenience of package delivery, even if the first three packages were left on doorsteps overnight and not delivered by a service.

It’s natural to want to know what motivated this murderer, and there’s speculation over a ideological or political rationale — especially since the two dead men were black. Yet other packages were rigged to detonate at random. Investigators may uncover some underlying motive. But the bottom line is that he was a sociopath, and, over the last 50 years, there has been a drastic increase in the number of these individuals. A huge reason for that is the disintegration of the family, often caused by statist welfare policies. Until we fix our culture, these sorts of things will continue to be a horrific part of American life. ~The Patriot Post

America Must Act Now to Thwart Putin’s Aggression

by Louis DeBroux: On Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin was “re-elected” in a landslide victory that was a forgone conclusion. As of Monday afternoon, Putin had collected 76% of votes cast, securing six more years ruling Russia. He’s already the second-longest “serving” leader in Russian history, behind only Joseph Stalin. But at least Putin was democratically elected, right? Only by farce.

To be sure, the election was rigged from top to bottom — even if the Trump administration won’t quite admit it. Reports abound of stuffed ballot boxes, forced voting, bribes and obstruction of poll watchers. Putin also jailed the only opposition candidate with a chance of defeating him, leaving him to run against a motley assortment of clowns and radicals that only accentuated the image of Putin as a strong, stable leader.

Yet the reality is that Putin is immensely popular with the Russian people; even his critics often see no better alternative. Criticism of Putin’s dictatorial methods are often rebutted by his supporters by asking, “If not Vladimir, then who?”

Putin’s popularity among the Russian people is psychological. They crave a strong leader who will defy the world and restore Russian greatness. President Ronald Reagan declared the Russian-led Soviet Union to be an “Evil Empire,” and then methodically bankrupted the USSR by engaging in a military build-up that their communist economy could not match. Russia had been thoroughly defeated and humiliated by the American-led West.

After the fall of the USSR, Boris Yeltsin rose to power in 1991 as president of the Russian Federation, and by the time he left in 1999, the Russian economy was in shambles, plagued by rampant inflation and corruption. The Russian “capitalists” (high-ranking political and military leaders — oligarchs — who seized state assets for themselves) became fabulously wealthy even as the average Russian struggled just to eat.

On New Year’s Eve 1999, Putin took power as president of Russia, and began consolidating power in an attempt to restore Russian glory. Putin famously claimed that the fall of the Soviet Union was the “greatest geopolitical catastrophe” of the 20th century. The Russian people agreed, and Putin cemented his power every time he defied the West.

Putin began maneuvering to restore Russian prestige. That effort became immensely easier when Barack liar-nObama became president. One of liar-nObama’s very first acts was to betray U.S. allies Poland and the Czech Republic by canceling an agreement to provide anti-missile defense systems to both as a conciliatory move in the face of Russian aggression. He followed that with virtual silence as Russia invaded Crimea and armed and supported insurgents in pro-Western Ukraine.

liar-nObama mocked 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for declaring Russia to be America’s greatest geopolitical threat, taunting, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.” Then liar-nObama was caught on an open mic with Putin puppet Dmitry Medvedev, pleading for Medvedev to convince Putin to “give [ liar-nObama] space,” promising that after the election, when liar-nObama would no longer have to answer to voters, he would have “more flexibility.”

It’s predictable that, with President Donald Trump now in the White House, Democrats suddenly see Russia as the enemy again. Democrats have become a gaggle of conspiracy theorists, searching high and low for evidence of Trump/Russia collusion, only discovering their own Democrat/ Russia collusion in the process. Never mind that liar-nObama gave Russia free rein for eight years, allowing it to gain power.

Regardless, the U.S. must act now to undermine Putin and keep him in check. Putin has become brazen is his threats and his aggression. Though Putin of course denies it, it’s all but certain that the Kremlin was behind the recent attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal — a former Russia spy under asylum in Great Britain — and his daughter, Yulia, using the banned nerve agent Novichok. Putin also recently announced Russia’s development of advanced nuclear weapons capable of penetrating U.S. missile defenses.

Putin’s willingness to authorize assassinations on foreign soil shows he believes the world will not stop him; a logical assumption, considering his aggression against sovereign nations, and murders and imprisonment of Russian dissidents, have been met with little more than weak chiding by the West.

Some argue Russia has become too powerful for America and Europe to take more forceful actions in reprisal. Over a third of Europe’s energy supplies come from Russia, but that’s a two-edged sword. More than half of Russia’s government revenue comes from its export of oil and gas. That makes it particularly vulnerable to fluctuations in global energy prices.

Just like Reagan did with the U.S. military build-up, President Trump can significantly weaken Russia, which has an economy already struggling to provide for the basic needs of its people, by further expanding U.S. energy exploration and increasing energy exports on the global market, driving down oil prices and starving Russia of revenue.

The U.S. can also increase sanctions, and provide greater economic and military support to Ukraine, enhancing its ability to defend itself and be a thorn in Russia’s side. We can freeze the nearly $1 trillion in assets placed in U.S. and Western banks by Putin-supporting Russian oligarchs, and limit their travel in the West.

Trump called Putin Tuesday to acknowledge his “election,” later saying it was a “very good call” and, “We’ll probably be meeting in the not-too-distant future.” Leftmedia talkingheads are, predictably, claiming the call was the latest evidence of their Trump/Putin collusion charade, which is now on life support. But the call was typical of Trump’s “art of the deal” strategy with Putin — all part of the negotiations game.

Whatever course is taken, it is imperative that the U.S. and its allies act decisively now to rein in Putin before his power grows any more. Otherwise the Russian menace grows ever stronger, until one day we realize the truth of Sir Winston Churchill’s axiom: “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile — hoping it will eat him last.”
