Palestinian Government Still Paying Terrorists With U.S. Taxpayer Funds, Defying U.S. Law

by Adam Kredo

{ } ~ The Palestinian Authority is continuing to pay out salaries to convicted terrorists using funds provided by the American taxpayer… a policy that defies a recent U.S. law mandating the PA stop these subsidies or face a cutoff in U.S. aid dollars, according to U.S. and Israeli lawmakers who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Palestinian officials in recent days have rejected a new U.S. law, known as the Taylor Force Act, or TFA, that bans the PA government from providing salaries to terrorists and their families, a longstanding policy that had become the center of controversy after it was found U.S. taxpayer aid dollars to the Palestinians had been used to subsidize this practice. While the Taylor Force Act—named after an American who was killed by a Palestinian terror attack in 2016—mandates the PA cease these payments or face a cutoff in U.S. aid, Palestinian officials have made clear in recent days they have no intention of ending this practice of funneling U.S aid dollars to the Palestinian Authority Martyr’s Fund… Cut them off Trump, just like you did to Syria.


DOJ Announces Arrests of 8 Who Tried to Buy Guns Illegally

by Stephen Gutowski

{ } ~ The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Wednesday that one of its gun crime initiatives has resulted in the arrest of eight suspects… who attempted to purchase guns despite being prohibited from doing so. The department said its Rhode Island Project Safe Neighborhoods has identified at least 44 firearms that were sold or transferred illegally. Investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) as well as state and local police departments focused their efforts on those who allegedly lied to gun dealers during a gun purchase. The so-called “lie-and-buy” crimes have received increased scrutiny in recent months with the DOJ promising this month to put a greater emphasis on prosecuting them. Last summer the department said it had increased gun crime prosecutions nearly 23 percent. U.S. Attorney Stephen G. Dambruch said the arrests demonstrated the department’s commitment to enforcing the laws already on the books…


Internal FBI report shows discrepancy between McCabe and Comey accounts

by Manu Raju, Pamela Brown, Laura Jarrett and Jeremy Herb

{ } ~ The internal FBI report that served as grounds for the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe includes key testimony from his former boss… that shows a discrepancy with McCabe’s public statements, according to multiple sources familiar with the report. Former FBI Director James Comey told internal investigators at the Justice Department that he could not recall McCabe telling him about having authorized FBI officials to talk to a reporter about an ongoing investigation, the sources said. Comey’s comments to the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which were later included as part of the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility report on McCabe that prompted his firing earlier this month, put him at odds with the statements McCabe has made about authorizing FBI officials to provide information to the Wall Street Journal in an October 2016 story about FBI and Justice Department tensions over an ongoing investigation into the liar-Clinton Foundation…


GOWDY GLAD WE HAVE “Independent” Bob MUELLER – Congress, Intel Committee Terrible


{ } ~ Rep Trey Gowdy responded in classic RINO fashion to a question on Face the Nation interview that airs on Sunday… Host Margaret Brennan notes, “The special counsel did reveal this week that Trump campaign official Rick Gates, who is a cooperating witness in that investigation, knowingly had communications on more than one occasion during the campaign with a person the FBI believes had active ties to Russian intelligence.” Of course the compromised FBI “believes” any connection, genuine or fabricated, that can shift attention away from their own corruption and was apparently fully on board with Mueller leaking that helpful information to their mutual media lapdogs. There’s been a lot of heat coming their way lately, so they’re deflecting and discrediting the ones exposing it, Congress, and attempting to reinforce the legitimacy of their hoax investigation through Mueller cheerleader, Trey Gowdy. She asks Gowdy, “As a former prosecutor what does this say to you? His answer fits the typical Gowdy of late, the pro-witch hunt version of “Yes Ma’am Man” we’ve watched morph into an unrepentant, fully exposed swamp spokesperson over the past year. He responded, “It says that I’m glad we have Bob Mueller. I’m glad we have an independent deep state liar-Clinton loyalist team leader ball and strike caller.” He makes those claims while his head shakes back and forth, a possible sign of some internal conflict over the veracity of what he’s saying…Gowdy who has the ability to seek the truth is leaking it so far and I am starting to dislike and distruth him.



Blumenthal – Dems Want NUMBER OF ILLEGALS In US KEPT SECRET, Out of Census


{ } ~ Globalist Sen Richard “Stolen Valor” Blumenthal (D-CT), demonstrates why the anti-America Democrats seldom stray from their talking points… If they get engaged in a real conversation, the truth might slip out and expose their anti-America agenda. At best they look like lying idiots. Gargoyle Blumenthal fell victim to all of those self-laid traps when he appeared opposite an unusually unbiased Alisyn Camerota for an interview about plans for the 2020 census to include a question of whether or not a person is an American citizen. Democrats consider anyone with a pulse, regardless of nationality or legal status to be a US citizen by virtue of their location. They’re opposed to any real information being collected that might be used to counter their understated claims of 11 million illegals in America or bolster the recognition of the need to fix the problem…Whats wrong with the people in CT, vote Blumenthal out.



Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte Discusses Prosecutor Huber and McCabe Firing

by sundance

{ } ~ House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte appears on Fox News to discuss the ability of Federal Prosecutor John Huber to investigate the criminal conduct within the FBI and DOJ. My notes follow the interview:

♦ The flow of investigative documents from IG Horowitz to Goodlatte congress slows down at the same time as Federal Prosecutor John Huber is appointed by AG Jeff Sessions to parallel the Inspector General and look at the identified criminal conduct. Duh. Why? Because releasing criminal evidence to congress, in advance of indictments, would be nuts.

♦ Prosecutor John Huber can subpoena witnesses and bring criminal charges directly. No need for a Special Counsel prosecutor. Huber can also empanel a grand jury. [Which we know has already taken place]

The concern about Federal Prosecutor John Huber is that he’s been inside the DOJ (albeit in Utah) through the liar-nObama terms and was reappointed by President Trump. Yeah, and so was Admiral Mike Rogers (NSA)…. and that’s despite the NSA database being used by corrupt officials within the FBI and DOJ to search and spy. Not all “holdovers” are bad people.

♦ Congressional derps want a “super special federal prosecutor” from outside the DOJ. Now go try to figure out how a DOJ Federal Prosecutor comes from outside the Federal Department of Justice…. derp…. and would have to start from scratch on the entire investigation, professional and criminal, that Horowitz and Huber have been assembling since ‘last fall’.

Do the American people want to wait another six months just because congress wants to replace Huber? Congress does. Why? Because congress applies a political filter to everything…. kicking-the-can is a process within their chaff and countermeasure strategy. Derp.

♦ To bolster the case for why Prosecutor Huber and/or Wray-Sessions are prudent to keep criminal evidence away from the leaking congress… Goodlatte discusses how his congress just leaked the content of the IG referral of McCabe vis-a-vis the Office of Professional Responsibility to the media. More derp.

♦ Chairman Goodlatte also states the documents provided by the DOJ and FBI Horowitz and Huber to congress are redacted. Duh. The redaction’s are specifically because: A.) the documents have NOT been through the declassification review process Remember – we are talking FBI counterintelligence division and DOJ national security division here; and B.) The documentary evidence contains the outline of criminal conduct.

Congress, writ large, can go to the DOJ and review all the documents in full without redaction’s. Horowitz, Rosenstein, Sessions, Wray and Prosecutor Huber are allowing congress to review all the collected evidence as part of the oversight aspect. However, if congress wants to physically remove evidence the aforementioned investigative entities require redactions. Duh. For the previously described reasons. Derp.
