Gregg Jarrett Explain Russian Hoax Scheme to Clear liar-Hillary and Frame Trump


{ } ~ Gregg Jarrett expertly countered every argument thrown his way by Neil Cavuto and stood his ground that he sees “no evidence of collusion” between Russia and President Donald Trump… The Fox News legal analyst spoke with Cavuto Friday about the many moving parts in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which is called out often as a “witch hunt” by the president. Cavuto asked Jarrett to expound on his “compellingly researched” best-selling book, “The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear liar-Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump.” “I see no evidence of collusion so far,” Jarrett said. “There have been five investigative committees looking into this. They have interviewed 175-plus witnesses, they’ve reviewed half a million documents. They have yet to find any evidence.” Jarrett noted that what he does worry about is “a guy like Robert Mueller who has compromised the integrity of his own investigation by selecting a team of partisans.” Cavuto, who has never been a fan of Trump’s and has openly criticized him on many occasions, challenged his guest. “It’s not all a hoax, is it? There’s a lot of stuff bubbling up.”…



Trump tweets he’d ‘shut down’ government if dummycrats-Democrats don’t fund US-Mexico wall

by Christopher Carbone

{ } ~ President Trump said on Sunday that he would be willing to shut down the federal government if the dummycrats-Democrats do not agree to Republican demands… about funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump wrote on Twitter that border security “includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!” The White House has been embroiled in controversy over the ongoing efforts to reunite families separated at the border who were attempting to enter the United States illegally. During his most recent weekly address, Trump cited the 9/11 terrorist attacks to justify strong enforcement of immigration laws and the continued necessity of Immigration Customs & Enforcement, the agency which has come under fire from dummycrats-Democrats in recent months…

Judge Blocks Gov’t Plans to Withhold Funds from Sanctuary Cities

by Janan Hanna

{ } ~ For the second time, a federal judge in Chicago rejected a U.S. Justice Department plan to withhold law enforcement grants… from so-called sanctuary cities and said his ruling applied nationwide. The city of Chicago sued the Justice Department, arguing that it’s policies of policing and cooperating with immigrant communities must be upheld. Chicago doesn’t cooperate with immigration authorities about the status of a suspect unless they are a known gang members or violent felons. Under the Justice Department plan, cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, would be denied funds under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. The conditions would require city police to contact immigration officials and hold those in custody suspected of being undocumented until immigration officials arrive. U.S. District Judge Harry D. Leinenweber said those conditions of the grants violate the separation of powers…This judge needs to read the constitution and the rule of law.


Hamas Claims Gaza Protests are ‘Peaceful,’ Then Calls for Killing Every Jew


{ } ~ One of the top Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip last week again claimed that ongoing demonstrations along the coastal enclave’s border with Israel are “peaceful” in nature… With his very next breath, he encouraged local Muslims to slaughter every Jew they can get their hands on. Speaking a funeral at the Great Omari Mosque in Gaza City, Fathi Hamad hailed the “success” of what he called “peaceful” protests at the Gaza security fence that have been going on since the end of March. “We are making history with our peacefulness and our peaceful movement,” Hamas insisted. Contrary to Hamad’s remarks, those protests have been marked by routine violence, including the flying of thousands of “fire kites” into southern Israel, resulting in the destruction of vast swaths of agricultural fields and nature reserves…Fathi Hamad is a liar and misleading his Muslims brothers.


There’s No Such Thing as ‘Democratic Socialism’

by Steve Feinstein

{ } ~ The new darling of the dummycrats-Democratic Party and the liberal mainstream media is commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez… the bright-eyed twenty-something who upended long-time House member Joe Crowley in a New York state dummycrats-Democratic primary a few weeks ago. In their breathless, frenzied rush to anoint commie-Ocasio-Cortez as the coming of the Savior of the Nation, liberals across the land have wholeheartedly embraced her call for “dummycrats- Democratic Socialism.” Ignoring the fact that commie-Bernie Sanders espoused essentially the exact same things in the last presidential campaign but was unceremoniously and dishonestly pushed aside by the dummycrats-Democratic Party in favor of liar-Hillary Clinton, what exactly is this “dummycrats-democratic socialism” that seems to have everyone on that side of the fence so atwitter these days? What dummycrats-Democrats think it is sounds good: income equality, a fair living wage for everyone, plentiful employment opportunities, quality healthcare coverage for all, affordable college education for all who want it, easy access to affordable, quality housing, and a tax system where the so-called rich pay their “fair share.” While they’re at it, the commie-Ocasio-Cortez’s of the world would also abolish ICE while ending most immigration restrictions, end what they see as our destructive international interventionism and put a stop to Israel’s occupation and oppression of Palestine. What these last three have to do with either “dummycrats- democracy” or “socialism” is unclear, but there it is anyway…Don’t be fooled by this socialism.


Shared Wisdom on a Silver Anniversary

by Michelle Malkin

{ } ~ To commemorate my 25th wedding anniversary this week to my husband, Jesse, I asked readers on Facebook to share their own secrets to a long happy marriage.

In short, the crowd sourced recipe for marital endurance includes faith, forgiveness, romance, kindness, selflessness and a healthy dose of humor. A union built to last begins with a promise and persists through compromise and commitment. It is about keeping your word, choosing the right words and knowing when no words are necessary.

Teri L. emphasized: “Marriage is WORK. You have to put effort into it. You have to love and nurture the relationship. It has to be priority. You have to respect it.”

Cathy G. advised: “Be careful with your words. Once they are out in the universe, there is no taking them back. And laugh — a lot! 41 years and counting.”

Vincent O. opined: The “key to a long marriage is forgiveness and understanding. You must also end your arguments and misunderstandings the same day. Never let it linger.”

Tony G. kept it short and simple: “53 years ago, I learned how to say, ‘Yes, Love.'”

Marie G. also administered pithy wisdom: “30 years. It’s all about RESPECT.”

Hugh W. counseled: “Our secret to a long marriage: I always let my wife think she’s in charge!”

Terence C. gave the opposite instruction: “As far as a secret to a successful marriage, I always tell everyone: ‘My wife lets me think I am the boss!'”

Walt S. weighed in: “50 years here … keep God and common sense in your marriage. Simplicity, Trust and Utility inside of our wedding bands.”

Pamela N. shared: “We celebrated our 51st last March. My advice is to apologize when you’re wrong and forgive when you are wronged. Don’t throw in the towel when hardships come. Hang on. There will be hills and valleys … and beautiful meadows. Embrace it all together.”

Robert S. reflected: “Will be married 50 years this August 2018. I carry a picture of my wife that I have had for over 51 (years).” She “sent it to me when I was in Vietnam. I look at that picture every day to remind me why I married her. It hasn’t failed me yet.”

Ad Feedback

Barbara M. posted: “Never take each other for granted and make memories, even if it’s just dancing to a tune on the radio in the kitchen. Laugh as much as possible and trust God to bring you through the storms. Be grateful for all that you have and most of all always be KIND and FORGIVING!”

Stark G. suggested: “Commit to the relationship voyage” and “always remember that this is a LONG-TERM voyage.” Moreover, “never forget that you are not an Adonis or a diva. Your partner didn’t have to marry you. They did you a favour.” And “go out for a coffee or a drink once a week to remind each other that you are still a couple.”

Rod K. divulged: “Having my wife of almost 44 years lying in a bed with terminal cancer and other pressing issues, the adage of ‘live each day with one another as though it may be your last’ has a tremendous message we are now facing, but equally for any married couple.”

Joan H. similarly noted: “My 25th was spent with my husband in a nursing home dining room where the staff had prepared a beautiful meal in a private room. I think my advice for a long lasting marriage is believing and living the part of your vows that say ‘in sickness and in health,’ because you just are never prepared or know what the future holds.”

From my mom and dad, who marked their 48th wedding anniversary this spring: “Today, as you reflect on the 25 years of journey through your married life, you can rejoice, be grateful, and take pride in all that you have accomplished and weathered together. Marriage indeed is hard work, but it becomes lighter when lived in love and perseverance, with patience and humility.”

Finally, Neil S. joked: “Never be stupid at the same time.”

We’ll take it all to heart. Stay tuned for another longevity update in 25 years.
