{ } ~ Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert believes government personnel working for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein… are spying on his office, he told WMAL’s “Morning on the Mall” Friday. “I don’t doubt for a minute that he has people who have been looking into my background.

Gohmert continued, “I’ve had people who work for the government saying they know everybody that comes in your office.” The congressman caveated that he did not believe any such operation was overseen by Rosenstein personally but that it was people who worked for him. “There’s always deniability,” he said…

by sundance

China’s President To James Mattis: “We Cannot Lose Even One Inch Of The Territory Left Behind By Our Ancestors”

by Theodore Shoebat

{ } ~ The US defense secretary went to Beijing two days ago to meet with the Chinese president… The dispute over the South China Sea and the US presence in Taiwan are at the center of tensions. Mattis: military relations with China have a “high level of importance” China is dedicated to peace, but will not give up “not even one inch” of its territory. This is what Chinese President Xi Jinping said yesterday, following the meeting with the US Defense Secretary, James Mattis. The former American general travelled to Beijing two days ago, as part of an institutional trip that will continue in South Korea and Japan. The visit comes in a context of tensions between the two economic giants. The United States criticizes China’s growing military claims and impositions in the South China Sea. Rich resource for fishing and trade, its waters are at the center of a territorial dispute that involves neighboring countries. For its part, Beijing looks suspiciously at the American military presence in Taiwan…


commie-Sanders Faces Rebuke Over Refusal to Support Abolishing ICE

by Haris Alic

{ } ~ Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) is facing rebuke from progressive activists and the far left of the dummycrats-Democratic Party… for declining to call for the abolishment of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Earlier this week during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, commie-Sanders was asked whether he supported abolishing ICE, the federal agency responsible for preventing cross-border crime and illegal immigration.(that’s not true. ICE is not at the borders) The commie-senator was conspicuously ambiguous in his answer, refusing to call for abolition and expressing general support for “a national program” to “deal with immigration in a rational way.” “I think that what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration in a rational way,” commie-Sanders said. “What we need is Trump to sit down with members of Congress and work on a national program which deals with this serious issue.”…


Rep. Wilson Wants Formal Reports on U.S. Response to Sonic Attacks in China, Cuba

by Susan Crabtree

{ } ~ Members of Congress are demanding more answers on how the State Department is responding to mysterious health incidents affecting U.S. diplomats in China… that are medically consistent with those that took place against more than two dozen American workers in Cuba. Rep. Joe Wilson (R., S.C.), who sits on the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees, has asked Secretary of State Pompeo for a State Department report that includes the U.S. government’s current and planned efforts to address and combat the “assessed causes” of the recent spate of “sonic” attacks on Americans in China and Cuba. Wilson also requested information on the concrete steps U.S. authorities are taking to protect U.S. embassies and residences abroad. “We must take a comprehensive approach to identify methods that protect against and counter acoustic attacks and non-traditional assaults against our Foreign Service officers and their families, and our embassy structures,” Wilson said in a statement…


Leftmedia: Trump Caused Newspaper Attack

by Thomas Gallatin: Five journalists who worked at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, were murdered Thursday when an individual with a longstanding grudge against the newspaper blasted his way into the building seeking revenge for a lost 2015 defamation lawsuit he had leveled against the paper. It was personal animus against that specific newspaper, not some generalized anti-media sentiments. Nevertheless, as news of the attack quickly spread across the country, once again leftists politicized the atrocity by blaming President Donald Trump.

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman wrote, “What happened today is sickening. This alleged gunman appears to have had a longstanding grudge against the paper and little else is known so far. But Trump is the only president in memory to call the press ‘the enemy of the people.’”

Reuters’ Rob Cox went further, angrily pontificating, “This is what happens when [Donald Trump] calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul.” Others joined in with similar memes.“

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway observed, “We also didn’t see [the MSM] wonder if the media’s harsh treatment of Republicans led to the mass assassination attempt on a baseball field filled with Republican senators and members of Congress last June. They also didn’t wonder if anti-police rhetoric led to the targeted murders of various policemen in recent years. The blame game seems to work one way with traditional media sources.”

Is it any wonder that 72% of Americans think the MSM intentionally reports misleading news?

The reality is that these mass attacks consistently have one common denominator, and it isn’t the presence of or lack of gun-control laws, nor is it political rhetoric. Rather in almost all of these atrocities the perpetrator is known in his local community to be a problem.

While it may be tempting to play the Left’s game of blaming the lawless actions of individuals on political opponents, one must take care not to conflate the two. Trump chastising the MSM for propagating fake news is not the same as dummycrats-Democrat mad-Maxine Waters explicitly calling on people to harass Trump administration officials. The irony is that much of the MSM is more than willing to excuse mad-Waters over her call to harassment as merely political rhetoric while seeking every opportunity to blame Trump for instigating and fueling vitriol and violence simply because he calls out their lies.
