Levin – You Don’t Have a Right to a Security Clearance

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ Levin’s remarks stem from a statement on CNN from former Director of National Intelligence scumbag-James Clapper… who suggested Trump’s act of pulling security clearances was an infringement of First Amendment rights. He said to Former CIA Director scumbag-James Clapper: The larger issue here, to me, has, throughout, has been infringement on First Amendment rights. Levin said, So here’s my question: how do you become Director of National Intelligence like scumbag-James (Jimmy) Clapper and not have any comprehension of what the First Amendment says? Nobody’s interfering with Mr. scumbag-Clapper’s free speech rights. He’s on CNN. He’s talking right now. Is anybody stopping him? No. You don’t have a right to a security clearance. I had to give mine up when I left the Reagan administration. I had a top security clearance. I was Chief of Staff to the Attorney General of the United States. I knew who we were wiretapping in most instances. I knew everything. Well, not everything, everything I was told, some of the FISA warrants, some of the probation, parole requests, that is pardoning requests, some of the ongoing intelligence investigations involving the FBI and so on. https://rickwells.us/levin-security-clearance/

Trey Gowdy: Peter Strzok is the Only Person Responsible For His Firing and He Completely Earned It

by Katie Pavlich

{ townhall.com } ~ In the aftermath of his firing, FBI agent Peter Strzok is claiming his forced departure from the agency is purely political… and his lawyer argues the termination came as a surprise. “We had an agreement with the FBI’s Office for Professional Responsibility, which is the main caretaker for internal discipline, that he would get a 60-day suspension and a demotion. At the last minute, that was countermanded by FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich and he was fired. So yeah, we were surprised,” Strzok’s attorney told CNN. “We think that they had the power, but not the right to do it,” he continued. “In this case, it is hard to reach any conclusion other than that the decision to reverse the OPR’s decision was motivated at least largely by politics.” Further Strzok’s attorney accused House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy of playing a major role in his client’s firing…Its alway the case, they blame others for their firing.  https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2018/08/14/trey-gowdy-peter-strzok-is-the-only-person-responsible-for-his-firing-and-he-completely-earned-it-n2509721

Sketchy Affiliations – As Expected Lawyer/Lobbyist Adam Waldman Refuses to Cooperate With Senate Judiciary Committee

by sundance

{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Adam Waldman is the lawyer/lobbyist for Oleg Deripaska, the Russian billionaire who appears to be a key background player in the 2016 DOJ/FBI scheme against presidential candidate Donald Trump… Additionally, Waldman represents the U.S. interests of Christopher Steele, author of the liar-Clinton-Steele Dossier that was used by the DOJ/FBI during their scheme against presidential candidate Donald Trump. Waldman was also the person in contact with corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee vice-chairman Mark Warner early in 2017 when the ‘insurance policy’ was deployed against newly elected President Donald Trump. As discovered in text messages, Waldman was the liaison, the person providing plausible deniability, between Senator Warner, Christopher Steele and Oleg Deripaska. As many people are now aware, the SSCI is the most corrupt committee apparatus within congress; and as noted in the text messages, Adam Waldman only wanted to work with the Senate Intelligence Committee on his endeavors. However, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has requested testimony from Mr. Waldman surrounding his contacts and engagements throughout the 2016/2017 operation to undermine and remove President Donald Trump…  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/08/18/sketchy-affiliations-as-expected-lawyer-lobbyist-adam-waldman-refuses-to-cooperate-with-senate-judiciary-committee/

Did Trump Really Save America From Socialism?

by STEVE BALDWIN

{ spectator.org } ~ With the appearance of Death of a Nation, the must-see film by Dinesh D’Souza, a debate has begun as to the role Donald Trump plays in American history… D’Souza argues persuasively that Trump has saved America from socialism while the left and Never-Trumpers insist he has set America back. However, the events of the last few years seem strongly to support D’Souza’s view. Americans need to understand that the shocking refusal by a major political party to accept the results of the last election and the onslaught of verbal, legal, and physical assaults the dummycrats-Democrats have engendered, are not specific to Donald Trump. In other words, it is now clear plans were made by scumbag/liar-nObama to exploit federal power during his presidency to give the dummycrats-Democrats control of our nation — perpetually. It really didn’t matter if Trump was the GOP nominee or not. In other words, the chaos we are witnessing today would not have been much different had, for example, Ted Cruz won the presidency. Sure, the issues and the phony narratives would be different but the intensity of the attacks would be the same and the illegal politicizing of Federal agencies would probably still have occurred. There is little doubt the dummycrats-Dems would have created phony narratives customized for whoever the nominee was, similar to how they customized the Russian collusion hoax for Trump. This is what the establishment Republicans and the Never-Trumpers don’t understand. Long before Trump’s candidacy, total war was declared on the GOP when the scumbag/liar-nObama administration strategically created the conditions to make its progressive revolution a permanent one. Or so they thought. First, let’s dump the naivety. scumbag/liar-nObama has been fully in charge of both the pre- and post- election attacks on Trump. He is the leader of the resistance. The idea that his appointees at the FBI, DOJ, IRS, CIA, State Department, etc., would risk committing multiple felonies without direction from him or his henchman is simply not believable as many long-time political leaders and observers have stated…  https://spectator.org/did-trump-really-save-america-from-socialism/

Time to Change the Rules in Gaza

by Dan Calic

{ americanthinker.com } ~ The night of August 14, 2005 remains firmly in the memory of many Israelis. For thousands it was their last night at home in the Gaza Strip… The following day was the deadline for all Jews to evacuate. August 15 saw those who remained being forcibly evicted by Israeli soldiers. Gut wrenching images of screaming Jews being carried away from their homes were all over the media. Soldiers were being cursed. It was an unimaginable scene of Jew against Jew. Israel was almost brought to its knees, coming close to civil war. By September 12 none of the 8,000 Jews who lived in Gaza remained. After 38 years Israel unilaterally turned this small enclave over to the Arabs. Residents were promised financial compensation, homes and employment by the Israeli government. Ten years on the government had failed to honor its promise to many hundreds of the forced evacuees. Why would Israel take such an unprecedented step, which severely divided the nation? For one reason: because Israel sincerely desires peace. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, once a lion who himself championed the development of Israeli communities in Gaza and Judea/Samaria, made an unprecedented and bold move in an effort to bring stability and coexistence with Israel’s Arab neighbors… Peace never came and it will never happen.   https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/08/time_to_change_the_rules_in_gaza.html

America’s Lengthening Enemies List

by PATRICK J. BUCHANAN

{ wnd.com } ~ Friday, deep into the 17th year of America’s longest war, Taliban forces overran Ghazni, a provincial capital that sits on the highway from Kabul to Kandahar.

The ferocity of the Taliban offensive brought U.S. advisers along with U.S. air power, including a B-1 bomber, into the battle.

“As the casualty toll in Ghazni appeared to soar on Sunday,” the Wall Street Journal reported, “hospitals were spilling over with dead bodies, corpses lay in Ghazni’s streets, and gunfire and shelling were preventing relatives from reaching cemeteries to bury their dead.”

In Yemen Monday, a funeral was held in the town square of Saada for 40 children massacred in an air strike on a school bus by Saudis or the UAE, using U.S.-provided planes and bombs.

“A crime by America and its allies against the children of Yemen,” said a Houthi rebel leader.

Yemen is among the worst humanitarian situations in the world, and in creating that human-rights tragedy, America has played an indispensable role.

The U.S. also has 2,000 troops in Syria. Our control, with our Kurd allies, of that quadrant of Syria east of the Euphrates is almost certain to bring us into eventual conflict with a régime and army insisting that we get out of their country.

As for our relations with Turkey, they have never been worse.

President Erdogan regards our Kurd allies in Syria as collaborators of his own Kurdish-terrorist PKK. He sees us as providing sanctuary for exile cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Erdogan says was behind the attempted coup in 2016 in which he and his family were targeted for assassination.

Last week, when the Turkish currency, the lira, went into a tailspin, President Trump piled on, ratcheting up U.S. tariffs on Turkish aluminum and steel. If the lira collapses and Turkey cannot meet its debt obligations, Erdogan will lay the blame at the feet of the Americans and Trump.

That the sanctions are biting is undeniable. Like the Turkish lira and Iranian rial, the Russian ruble has been falling and the Russian people are feeling the pain.

Last week also, a U.S. Poseidon reconnaissance plane, observing China’s construction of militarized islets in the South China Sea, was told to “leave immediately and keep out.”

China claims the sea as its national territory.

And North Korea’s Kim Jong Un apparently intends to hold onto his arsenal of nuclear weapons.

“We’re waiting for the North Koreans to begin the process of denuclearization, which they committed to in Singapore and which they’ve not yet done,” John Bolton told CNN last week.

A list of America’s adversaries here would contain the Taliban, the Houthis of Yemen, Bashar Assad of Syria, Erdogan’s Turkey, Iran, North Korea, Russia and China – a pretty full plate.

Are we prepared to see these confrontations through, to assure the capitulation of our adversaries? What do we do if they continue to defy us?

And if it comes to a fight, how many allies will we have in the battles and wars that follow?

Was this the foreign policy America voted for?
