Devin Nunes Discusses Impeachment and scumbag/liar-Schiff’s New Found Authority – Congressional Subpoenas for Private Phone Records

by sundance{ } ~ Devin Nunes appeared on Tucker Carlson to discuss the impeachment events of the day. However, thankfully they also discussed the revelation that HPSCI Chairman scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff randomly started issuing subpoenas for telephone information… That’s the part I find very troubling. Notice how the media simply ignores it? This is a pretty big damn deal.  Under what authority can congress arbitrarily send subpoenas for the private phone records of citizens, journalists, and fellow politicians? Can Nunes now start sending subpoenas for the phone records of Michael Isikoff around the time of the Flynn phone call leak?… and can congress publish those call records as a part of some possibly inquiry into the leak… and we can cross reference to identify the FBI leaker?

Is The Washington Post, New York Times and CNN Now Declaring Professor Mifsud is *NOT* A Russian Asset?

by sundance{ } ~ The CIA primarily leaks PR spin to the Washington Post. The FBI primarily leaks PR spin to the New York Times; and the State Dept. primarily leaks PR spin to CNN… This narrative distribution model is the one constant in an ever changing universe. Cue the audio visual… Obviously the prior Washington Post effort to conflate the Durham investigation with the Horowitz investigation didn’t get the desired result. As a consequence it only took a few days before the Washington Post was back at it Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett again to try obfuscation 2.0; this time with Joseph Mifsud. For three years the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN have sold the FBI claim that Professor Joseph Mifsud was a Russian operative passing information about scumbag/liar-Clinton’s emails to George Papadopoulos. That essential point underpins their defense of the predicate for the CIA and FBI to open the July 31st investigation of the Trump campaign. Again, for three years Joseph Mifsud was sold as a Russian operative; working on behalf of Russian interests. That “Mifsud is a Russian asset” claim is the fulcrum of Crossfire Hurricane. Mifsud has to be a Russian asset, or else… George Papadopoulos talking to Australian Diplomat Alexander Downer about Mifsud is simply political gossip without merit, value or bearing. The key point is Mifsud has to be a Russian operative in order for all of the downstream FBI activity to be justified. If Mifsud ain’t Russian, the CIA and FBI have a problem… 

Secretary Sonny Perdue Discusses Return to Prior Guidelines for SNAP Assistance

by sundance{ } ~ The U.S. government limits the amount of time adults aged 18-49, who do not have dependents or a disability, can receive food stamps to three months in a 36-month period unless they meet certain work requirements… However, during tough economic times the Dept. of Agriculture has provided waivers to extend the limits. With a strong economy and low unemployment the Trump administration has now finalized a rule tightening guidelines on when and where states can waive federal limits on how long certain residents can receive benefits. The changes will move more “able-bodied” adults into the workplace, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue explains: Common sense spending reform is a key part of MAGAnomics. Under the America First economic program the economy expands, tax receipts increase, and the federal government has no need to provide supplemental benefits. The treasury takes in an extra dollar and has no need to spend a dollar, the savings are doubled.  


2 Victims, Shooter Dead in Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Shooting

By: Sam LaGrone{ } ~ A shooter who killed two shipyard workers and injured a third at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, Hawaii is dead, Navy officials confirmed to USNI News… The shooter, a U.S. sailor, shot the three civilians near Dry Dock 2 at the shipyard before turning the gun on himself on Wednesday, Rear Adm. Rob Chadwick commander of Navy Region Hawaii told reporters. NCIS is now leading an investigation into the shooting, Chadwick said. The nuclear attack submarine USS Columbia (SSN-771) was in the dry dock being repaired. The shooter was attached to Columbia. Following the shooting, “one of the victims was taken to the Tripler Army Medical Center, one to Pali Momi Medical Center and a third to the Queen’s Medical Center,” reported Hawaii News Now “Honolulu EMS sent multiple ambulances to the scene, and Honolulu Fire responded with six units, including almost two dozen firefighters,” reported ABC. One witness told the news station they heard loud pops from their office at the shipyard. “I kind of recognize that as gunshots,” one witness told the network. “I looked out in time to see the shooter, who I assume was a sailor because he was in uniform … shoot himself.” The more than 100-year-old shipyard is one of four major repair facilities operated by the Navy to service ships and submarines throughout the fleet. Thousands of sailors and civilians work in and around the facility that’s adjacent to the U.S. naval base and Pacific Fleet headquarters near Honolulu. Officials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam report the shooting incident at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard has been secured. One person is confirmed dead. The shooter has been tentatively identified as a U.S. Sailor. The sailor reportedly shot and injured three Department of Defense civilian workers before shooting themself. The incident took place this afternoon at the vicinity of the shipyard’s Dry Dock 2. The base is no longer in lockdown. Base security and Navy investigative services are currently investigating. The names of the victims will not be released until the next of kin have been notified.

Germany: All EU Members Must Take in Migrants

by Soeren Kern{ } ~ German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has unveiled a new plan to reform the European asylum system… A draft of the proposal leaked to the media shows that all member states of the European Union would be required to take in illegal migrants. Countries in Central and Eastern Europe are opposed to mandatory relocations on the basis that decisions about the granting of residence permits should be kept at the national level. They have noted that by unilaterally imposing migrant quotas on EU member states, unelected bureaucrats in Brussels are seeking to force the democratically elected leaders of Europe to submit to their diktat. Indeed, the continuing debate over migration is, at its core, about European federalism and the degree to which the European Union will be allowed to usurp decision-making powers from its 28 member states. Seehofer presented his four-page plan to reform the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) to the new president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, in Brussels on December 2. She is expected to unveil her migration proposals in February 2020, ahead of Germany’s six-month presidency of the European Council which begins in July 2020. The new plan is aimed at replacing the European Union’s Dublin Regulation, a law that requires people seeking asylum in the EU to do so in the first European country they reach. Southern European countries — especially Greece and Italy — have complained that, in the context of mass migration from Africa, Asia and the Middle East, the current system places an unfair and disproportionate burden on them. They say that all EU member states should take equal responsibility for migrants reaching European shores. At the height of Europe’s migration crisis in September 2015, some EU member states voted to relocate 120,000 migrants from Italy and Greece to other parts of the bloc. This number was in addition to a July 2015 plan to redistribute 40,000 migrants from Italy and Greece… . 

FBI Uncovers Even More scumbag/liar-Clinton Emails

by TOM FITTON{ } ~ The government malfeasance in the scumbag/liar-Clinton email scandal is seeming never-ending. The State Department just confessed to a court that FBI found more scumbag/liar-Clinton emails that were then Turned over to State for review… In the November 15, 2019 filing, the State Department informed the court that the FBI located additional scumbag/liar-Clinton emails that potentially had not been previously released: The Federal Bureau of Investigation “FBI” recently sent the State Department additional documents as part of the ongoing inter-agency consultation process in connection with other FOIA litigation. The State Department is working to determine whether that set of documents includes any responsive, non-duplicative agency records that have not already been processed. The State Department will promptly update Judicial Watch and the Court once that initial review is complete. The FBI filed this court ordered joint status report in response to our May 6, 2015, FOIA lawsuit Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)). Our FOIA lawsuit seeks all emails sent and received by scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton and other records about her non-governmental email account. Earlier this year, Judicial Watch announced that it received 756 pages of emails that were among the materials scumbag/liar-Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“” email system.  This production was supposed to be the final production of scumbag/liar-Clinton emails. Judicial Watch estimates that the FBI being only able to recover or find approximately 5,000, including classified material, of the 33,000 government emails scumbag/liar-Clinton removed and tried to destroy. The FBI uncovered 72,000 pages of documents scumbag/liar-Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose. Now again, it appears the FBI has uncovered more scumbag/liar-Clinton email documents. You may recall that last week we released FBI emails showing that the FBI’s top lawyer gave deferential treatment to the attorney representing scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton’s top aides implicated in the mass deletion of scumbag/liar-Clinton’s emails. So it is astonishing news that the FBI mysteriously found more scumbag/liar-Clinton emails. Were they on Anthony Weiner’s laptop? At scumbag-James Comey’s house? Or on Peter Strzok’s cell phone? This disturbing development further highlights how the fix was in on the scumbag/liar-Clinton email scandal and why a criminal investigation needs to be reopened by Attorney General Barr…  

Chickening Out

 Cal Thomas

It is a truism that a blackmailer is rarely satisfied. Once the payoffs start, there often is no end to them.The Chick-fil-A fast-food chain is about to learn this hard lesson, far too late, as many victims of blackmail and extortion generally do.For conservatives and evangelical Christians, Chick-fil-A has been a model company that has consistently stood against the “anything goes” spirit of the age. It’s founder, the late S. Truett Cathy, ordered that his restaurants be closed on Sundays to allow employees to attend church and spend time with their families.When LGBT activists learned the company donated to charities that supported the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman and declared a boycott of the restaurants, others demonstrated their support by strongly patronizing them.Without any noticeable new pressure, Chick-fil-A announced it would no longer be donating to Christian charities like The Salvation Army, an organization not known for political activism. A company spokesman said future donations would go to charities in support of education, the homeless and ending hunger.If this weren’t enough, the restaurant chain also announced it is sending a $2,500 donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing organization that lists some Christian ministries as “hate groups.” Among them is the Family Research Council, which describes itself as a “pro marriage and pro-life” lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C.As reported by The Washington Times, “In 2012, gunman Floyd Lee Corkins shot building manager Leo Johnson after storming the FRC building in Washington, D.C., carrying 50 rounds of ammunition and a backpack of Chick-fil-A sandwiches. The shooter later told the FBI that he found FRC on the SPLC’s list of ‘anti-gay groups.’”Upon hearing of Chick-fil-A’s donation to the liberal organization, FRC President Tony Perkins said, “Not only has Chick-fil-A abandoned donations to Christian groups, including the Salvation Army, it has donated to one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America.” Perkins called on conservatives to seek a fast-food alternative, but boycotts are rarely successful and besides, the sandwiches taste good.Appeasement doesn’t work when there is a shooting war between enemies and it doesn’t work in a culture war in which the left takes no prisoners. Each time an inch is given by any conservative individual or group, it merely whets the appetite of the secular progressives for more concessions. When conservative people stand on principle, their adversaries usually find another target. Most Christians are familiar with the verse “resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7). It can similarly work with earthly adversaries.Individuals and organizations are free to contribute to any group they wish, but Chick fil-A’s donation to the SPLC is as strange as a pro-life organization donating money to Planned Parenthood.What has gotten into them is anyone’s guess since management has not explained its decision. It is unlikely, though, that S. Truett Cathy would have approved.The newly “converted” rapper Kanye West dropped a music video last week from his latest album, “Jesus Is King.” The fourth track is titled “Closed on Sunday” and is meant as a tribute to Chick-fil-A. The lyric includes “Closed on Sunday, you’re my Chick-fil-A/Hold the Selfies, put the ‘Gram away/Get your family, y’all hold hands and pray/When you got daughters, always keep ’em safe.’”Let’s see if the same LGBT activists that have attacked the restaurant chain come after West and if they do whether he can prevail against the pressure.  ~The Patriot Post
