Mueller probe ‘hampered’ congressional investigations, senator alleges


{ } ~ Senator Johnson said he would prefer that any “special counsel” investigations take place AFTER congressional hearings are completed… This would allow the congressional committee to fully do its job and not face the roadblocks put up when there is a special counsel called upon. As we have seen, though, Mueller is keeping everything he has very close to his vest. Regardless of how much Congress stamps its feet, the FBI is refusing to turn over evidence it has that could possibly lead these investigative committees down a different road to the indictment of liar-Hillary Clinton. Were the process allowed to “play out,” there is no telling what the congressional committee would have found...


The Military Can Secure the Border and Build the Wall

by Daniel Greenfield

{ } ~ The United States has 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, 39,000 in Japan, 34,805 in Germany, 23,000 in South Korea, and around 5,200 in Iraq… Our military protects the borders of countless nations. Except our own. In 1919, we had 18,500 soldiers on the border. “Twice a day every foot of the border line is patrolled by cavalrymen and infantrymen,” the New York Times noted. A hundred years later, President Trump’s proposal to use the military to secure the border is controversial even though Marines fighting drug cartels have come under fire from drug smugglers. El Salvadoran migration has inflicted 207 murderers on this country. The migrant caravan threatening to invade this country includes migrants from El Salvador. Some of them may be MS-13 members. The Pueblo Sin Fronterascaravan of 1,000 migrants is the product of an alliance between international leftists and migrant invaders. Their goal is the invasion, colonization and occupation of America. And the only ones defending us against them are the members of an outnumbered border patrol, threatened by both drug cartels on the other side of the border and sanctuary states in this country…


Levin: ‘If the Israelis Listened to commie-Bernie Sanders, They Would Cease to Exist’

by Michael Morris

{ } ~ On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Monday, host Mark Levin singled out commie-Bernie Sanders… for his take on the Israeli government’s decision to use lethal force against Palestinians on the Gaza Strip on the border with Israel, saying, “If Israelis listened to commie-Bernie Sanders, they would cease to exist.” “What about Hamas and Islamic jihad?” Levin asked in response to a clip of commie-Bernie Sanders speaking on how Israel should respond to threats on its border. “If the Israelis listened to commie-Bernie Sanders, they would cease to exist.” Mark Levin’s comments came after Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders was interviewed by Margaret Brennan on CBS News “Face the Nation” on the recent clashes between Israel and Palestinians on the Israeli border, Sen. commie-Sanders saying that Israel “cannot overreact and the idea of 15 or so people being killed and hundreds being wounded is – is to me unacceptable.”…Forget about running for President in 2020 commie-Sanders.



Concerns With Fraudulent Justice Department FISA Application Highlighted by New Page/Strzok Text Messages

by sundance

{ } ~ Sara Carter has a new ‘exclusive’ report from congressional sources who are sharing new text messages with her… surrounding the timeline of the Justice Department’s National Security Division compiling the FISA Title-1 application that was eventually authorized to conduct FBI surveillance on Carter Page and the Trump Campaign. A note of caution within the story as outlined by Carter, there’s some granular details -subject to interpretation- that she appears to be misconstruing. Additionally, it is important for emphasis to remember the Main Justice side of the scandal stems from rogue officials within the DOJ national Security Division [DOJ-NSD]. According to Carter, Peter Strzok was expressing frustration about the FISA application being challenged. DOJ Attorney Lisa Page, assigned to Andrew McCabe by the DOJ ‘small group’ leadership, was explaining to Strzok who, how and where the slowdown was coming from… https:///2018/04/03/concerns-with-fraudulent-justice-department-fisa-application-highlighted-by-new-page-strzok-text-messages/


Trump to sign proclamation sending National Guard to the border immediately

by Adam Shaw

{ } ~ The Trump administration announced Wednesday that President Trump will sign a proclamation to send the National Guard to the border immediately… Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at the White House press briefing that it would be done in conjunction with governors and that the administration hopes the deployment begins “immediately.” Trump had said Tuesday that he wanted to send the military to the border to secure it until a wall and other security measures were put in place.



London Murder Rate Surpasses New York City’s

by Political Editors: This past, February the city of London, England, surpassed New York City in its number homicides. Some 15 people were murdered in London to 14 in New York, and in March the numbers were 22 and 21, respectively. Both cities hold populations of 8.5 million or better, but it was NYC that historically held the dubious record by a significant margin. For example, in 1990, an astounding 2,245 people were murdered in NYC. However, over the last two decades the numbers have dropped by 90% to 290 last year.

Meanwhile, in recent years London has seen a significant rise in murders. Since 2014, the number of homicides in the British capital has risen by 38%, and throughout the countries of Wales and England the number of violent crimes has increased by 12% from 2011 through 2017. What makes this notable is that the weapon most often employed in these British murders is a knife. While the UK has essentially banned private ownership of firearms, and NYC does have strict gun-control laws, the total number of law-abiding American citizens who own firearms has steadily increased across the U.S. since the 1990s. In other words, the correlation of number of guns to increases in murders hasn’t happened in the U.S., if anything the argument can be made that an overall increase in gun ownership has led to a drop in violent crime.

However, the bigger point to be made here is the fact that individuals regardless of laws, will still seek to harm others. Though the methods employed for committing murder may change, like using a knife rather than a gun, the obvious point is that it is people who kill people. The larger question should be focused on motive rather than method for these homicides. Why is London seeing such an increase while New York has seen a significant decrease? One factor maybe the increase of refugees within the UK, who may have either radical Islamic motivations or are easy prey to be exploited by organized crime in these often poor foreign communities. In any case, its worth pondering as American malcontents try to strip us of our Second Amendment rights.

That’s because Democrats don’t care about violence unless they can make political hey with people’s deaths.
