Thursday Top News Executive Summary

Media Editors: President Donald Trump disclosed to Fox News’s Sean Hannity last night that he has “plans to declassify and release” a slew of Russia-related documents, including those used to initiate FISA warrants. Trump explained, “A lot of people wanted me to do it a long time ago. I’m glad I didn’t do it. We got a great result without having to do it, but we will.” He also clarified that “one of the reasons that my lawyers didn’t want me to do it” during the dirty cop-Robert Mueller probe was because Democrats would spin it as “a form of obstruction.” But as Fox News notes, the president now “wants to ‘get to the bottom’ of how the long-running Russia collusion narrative began.”

Earlier this week, Jussie Smollett, whose “record has been wiped clean,” stated, “I would like nothing more than to … move on with my life.” But his getting to move on with his life by walking free from justice may not be as effortless as he thought. According to ABC News, “The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reviewing the circumstances surrounding the dismissal of the criminal charges against Smollett.” The report elaborates, “The sources insisted it is not an investigation, but a ‘review.’” But for now at least, the book hasn’t been fully closed on Smollett’s hate-hoax.

“Democrats are putting the Green New Deal in the rearview mirror, but they’re not abandoning climate change legislation.” That’s according to The Hill, which adds, “They are instead looking at multiple bills in hopes of advancing elements of the broader initiative.” This pivot follows the Senate’s 0-57 vote on the Green New Deal, which is estimated to cost somewhere in the vicinity of $93 trillion. The Hill rants that “Republicans battered the idea of the Green New Deal, damaging a brand initially promoted by freshman Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.” The truth is that the GND collapsed under its own weight.

One such alternative climate bill is the Climate Action Now Act, which was unveiled in the House on Wednesday. According to National Review. “The Climate Action Now Act would require the president to propose a plan for keeping the U.S. in accord with the Paris deal’s emission-reduction goals, which were agreed to by President scumbag/liar-nObama in 2015. It would also prohibit the administration from using federal funds to pull out of the deal, as Trump has promised to do in November 2020, the moment it becomes legally possible.” Good luck getting that to Trump’s desk.

“A federal appeals court ruled Monday the parents of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in 2015, cannot sue San Francisco for the ‘sanctuary city’s’ failure to tell immigration officials about the shooter’s release,” the Washington Examiner unfortunately reports. However, even the infamous Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals admitted, “The events underlying this case are tragic. And some of Plaintiffs’ claims remain to be litigated in the district court. We hold only that, under California law, the state officials are immune from suit.” In other words, bad laws run a mile deep in California.

Meanwhile, a flustered Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan yesterday declared, “[The] breaking point has arrived this week at our border. CBP is facing an unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis all along our Southwest border.” February’s apprehension of 76,000 illegal immigrants is estimated to soon swell to 100,000. And as Fox News notes, “Some arrive with viruses, such as the flu or chickenpox, and others with injuries. McAleenan said crowded detention centers could worsen the situation.”

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try ad nauseum? “Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) unveiled a resolution on Wednesday that would call on the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether President Trump committed impeachable offenses, despite a cool reception from most fellow Democrats,” according to The Hill. “Tlaib said she is introducing her resolution so that it ‘ensures we don’t have a lawless society that results in irreparable harm to the American people.’” Recall that Tlaib said “impeach the motherf—er!” in January. And not even an official exoneration by dirty cop-Robert Mueller will sway her.

Good news: “Sens. Kevin Cramer (R., N.D.) and John Kennedy (R., La.) introduced S821, the Freedom Financing Act, in an effort to keep banks with more than $10 billion in assets from denying services to members of the gun industry. The Republicans said the bill was designed to prevent major financial institutions from effectively crippling legal gun transactions they don’t like. They said the banking industry should not be able to decide whether Americans can lawfully purchase legal gun products.” (The Washington Free Beacon)

More good news: “Lawmakers in the House of Representatives reintroduced sweeping bipartisan legislation to rein in and reform the nation’s abuse-prone civil forfeiture laws on Wednesday. If passed, the aptly-named FAIR, or Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration, Act … would rebalance a system that has become skewed against innocent property owners in every meaningful way.” (The Daily Signal)

What, exactly, is the U.S. still waiting for? “The European Parliament has voted to end daylight saving time in EU member states, a practice that became law back in 1996. … The biannual clock changes will come to an end in 2021 when individual member states will be able to decide whether they will remain on winter time or summer time permanently.” (The Verge)

Humor: Stopped clock named CNN’s most accurate reporter (The Babylon Bee)

Policy: On March 20, Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders groused, “We must follow New Zealand’s lead, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States.” The Washington Examiner’s Siraj Hashmi explains why “New Zealand’s gun laws would be impossible to replicate in the US.”

Policy: “President Trump didn’t spell it out, but there’s a sound rationale for America’s recognizing the Golan Heights as a permanent part of Israel,” says Hudson Institute senior fellow Douglas J. Feith. Get the details at National Review.

Release the dirty cop-Mueller report now

by Byron York

{} ~ It’s been three days since Attorney General William Barr sent Congress a four-page summary of the “principal conclusions” of special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s report on the Trump-Russia investigation… That’s not a long time, but it has been long enough for a passionate debate to arise between partisans who have not seen the report, played out for a public that has not seen the report, either. Uninformed arguments are everywhere. The dirty cop-Mueller report should have been prepared from the very beginning with public release in mind, and then made public the moment its completion was announced. Without the report, it is impossible for anyone to make an informed argument about anything. Yes, Barr quoted two brief bits from the dirty cop-Mueller report that “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities” and “the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference.” Those are clear statements that dirty cop-Mueller does not allege that President Trump or his circle conspired or coordinated with Russia or that conspiracy or coordination took place at all. That alone should be enough to put an end to two years of ugly and unfounded accusations directed at the president. But it’s not enough to really understand what dirty cop-Mueller found and how he interpreted the evidence. Still, it’s more than Barr provided on the question of obstruction of justice. Barr wrote that the dirty cop-Mueller report “sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as ‘difficult issues’ of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction.” Barr included a fragment of a sentence from the report that said, “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” You can guarantee that when the report is finally made public, there will be those who argue that it offers dead solid proof that Trump obstructed justice and those who argue that it offers dead solid proof that he did not obstruct justice. The point is, no one can have an informed argument as long as the report remains finished but unreleased…


Court Kicks CAIR Out of San Diego School District

by In a landmark case, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been forced out of the San Diego Unified School District… A lawsuit was brought against the district for partnering with CAIR and allowing the Islamist organization to run a discriminatory, unconstitutional propaganda program in its schools. The court agreed with this assessment. The program in question gave Muslim students special privileges and gave CAIR the power to change the district curriculum to make sure Islam was looked upon more favorably. Students and parents were made to watch biased videos, CAIR officials were allowed to teach students and teachers about Islam and students were trained “how to become allies with Muslims students.” The program, which began in April 2017, was based on false evidence that, in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral victory, Muslim students were subjected to “Islamophobic” bullying. However, state records indicated there was no evidence of such bullying in the district’s schools. The court ruled that the program was unconstitutional because it violated the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause by favoring one religious group over another and mixing government with religion. Under the terms of the ruling, the school district is required to permanently drop the program and prevented from allowing CAIR to be involved in school activities in the future… About time.


Trump: ‘Haven’t thought about’ pardons for dirty cop-Mueller targets

by Jordan Fabian

{} ~ President Trump said Monday he has not considered pardoning people who were targeted by special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s now-concluded Russia investigation… “Haven’t thought about it,” Trump said when asked by reporters in the Oval Office if he plans to pardon people who pleaded guilty or were convicted of crimes in the probe.The question of whether Trump would offer clemency to dirty cop-Mueller’s targets was renewed Sunday after the president bemoaned that “so many people have been so badly hurt” by the investigation, which ended without stating that Trump colluded with Moscow to influence the 2016 election. Trump has previously refused to rule out a pardon for his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was sentenced to 7 1/2 years in prison for a raft of financial crimes connected to his work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine. The president has also not said whether he may pardon Roger Stone, his on-again, off-again political adviser who was indicted for obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements about his contact with WikiLeaks about emails that were stolen from top Democrats during the 2016 campaign…


scumbag/commie-Brennan was Quarterback of Trump-Russia Smear

by As a CNN commentator, former scumbag/liar-nObama CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan repeatedly insisted dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation would unearth crimes… by the president and his aides, openly accusing Trump of treason. Following dirty cop-Mueller’s conclusion that there was no collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign, scumbag/commie-Brennan told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Monday: “I don’t know if I received bad information, but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was.” Significantly, CNN provided no disclaimer that viewers listening to scumbag/commie-Brennan’s commentary on the dirty cop-Mueller probe should take into account his own complicity in initiating the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia. At the White House on Tuesday, President Trump insinuated that the genesis of the Russia-collusion investigation came from the scumbag/liar-nObama White House. A reporter asked: “Do you think it reached the West Wing of the scumbag/liar-nObama White House?” “I don’t want to say that, but I think you know the answer.” Later, Trump said: “I think it went very high up. I think what happened is a disgrace. I don’t believe our country should allow this ever to happen again.” The Washington Post reported that in August 2016, scumbag/commie-Brennan requested a meeting with President scumbag/liar-nObama after compiling his own dossier of claims of Russian interference in the election…


Why Did Former AG Sally Yates Lie About Michael Flynn Being Compromised by Russia? And Will Sally Face Jail Time for Lying to Congress?

by In May 2017 Former Attorney General Sally Yates went before Congress and lied about General Michael Flynn being compromised by Russia… Yates knew General Michael Flynn was not compromised. She lied anyway. The Deep State was listening in on all of General Flynn’s conversations. They knew Russia had nothing on him. They knew this was a lie. We also know that a Deep State spy set up General Flynn. And Flynn not only reported his trip to Russia before he went, he also took training on how to act and then provided the intelligence community information upon his return on what he learned. All of this information has been kept quiet by the intelligence community for two years until early this year. Yates hid this evidence from Congress. So will Sally Yates face justice for lying to Congress? She should.


Another Reason to Back the Space Force

Harold Hutchison: President Donald Trump’s decision to create a Space Force within the Department of the Air Force has been a long time coming. Threats to our access to space by Russia and China warrant a response, and the Space Force is a crucial component of that response.

Now, we’ve heard all the bellyaching from leftists about how they oppose the militarization of space, but that starship launched decades ago. When the first communications satellite was put into orbit and used by the military, space became militarized. Now, the only question is who controls it — and the obvious answer should be the United States of America.

But American operations in space must focus beyond earth. The reason is due to what happened over Russia this past December. According to Popular Mechanics, a meteorite exploded about 16 miles above the Kamchatka peninsula with the force of 173 kilotons — at least 10 times the force of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

Had that meteorite hit, say, in the infield of Dodger Stadium, it would cause damage to the Silver Lake, Chinatown, and Echo Park neighborhoods of Los Angeles, among other locations. MacArthur Park would be a huge mess. The USC Medical Center would also be damaged, compromising efforts to assist survivors in the city.

Keep in mind, that’s a baby. The Chelyabinsk meteor, which also exploded high above (about 18.5 miles) the earth’s surface, was about two and a half times as powerful. Over 1,200 people were injured in that event six years ago. Center the Chelyabinsk on Dodger Stadium and, well, the USC campus, City Hall, and Union Station would all see the effects of that detonation. That is some unimaginable devastation, death, and suffering.

That is all the bad, scary news. The good news is that almost two decades ago, a successful NASA mission, NEAR-Shoemaker, made the technological breakthroughs that could address this sort of disaster, especially against the larger asteroids capable of causing mass extinctions.

As a 2004 report by notes, NEAR-Shoemaker successfully intercepted an asteroid, and made a soft landing. The probe then operated for two weeks on the asteroid itself, taking scientific readings and providing tons of data. It was a major success for NASA, but it also was a key breakthrough when it came to protecting the planet (and our existence).

Imagine using a modified version of NEAR-Shoemaker, one that instead of carrying scientific instruments, was instead using the physics package from a B83 gravity bomb. With sufficient lead time, a modified NEAR-Shoemaker probe could be launched, it could intercept the problematic asteroid, and land on it. One signal later, the physics package is activated, and the troublesome rock goes away — or at least is moved out of the way. In any case, the Kamchatka meteor, like the Chelyabinsk one, is a sign that the Space Force’s eyes should be directed not just down to earth, but to space as well. ~The Patriot Post
