Trump Goes After scumbag-Comey for Hurting The FBI’s Once Stellar Reputation

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ President Donald Trump criticized former FBI Director scumbag-James Comey and several other federal investigators… involved in the Russian investigation Saturday for damaging the agency’s reputation. Trump thrashed scumbag-Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Twitter for using the nearly two-year long probe to tarnish the agency’s image. He also warned the agency not to slow walk public requests for text messages between former investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. “Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY.” Trump tweeted before mentioning McCabe’s wife’s involvement in Democratic politics. He added in an additional tweet: “Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by scumbag-Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!”… https://rickwells.us/trump-after-comey-fbi-reputation/

Flight data recorder, human remains found in stolen Sea-Tac plane probe

by Edmund DeMarche

{ foxnews.com } ~ Federal officials announced late Sunday that they recovered the flight data recorder and human remains from the stolen commercial airplane… that took off from Sea-Tac International Airport and crashed into a small island in Puget Sound. The FBI recovered the cockpit voice recorder from aircraft N449QX and the National Transportation Security Board is processing the data. The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office is in possession of the remains. The plane was located and was considered “highly fragmented.” “The wings are off, the fuselage is, I think, kind of positioned upside down,” Debra Eckrote, the Western Pacific regional chief for the National Transportation Safety Board, said. No structures on the ground were damaged by the plane, which sparked a small wildfire…   http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/08/13/flight-data-recorder-human-remains-found-in-stolen-sea-tac-plane-probe.html

Iran regime ramps up crackdown on persecuted Christians after US sanctions

by Benjamin Weinthal

{ foxnews.com } ~ U.S. sanctions on Iran have inadvertently led to a crackdown on its persecuted Christian community… as the ayatollahs move to consolidate their power in the face of growing unrest across the country. The U.S. on Tuesday re-imposed a wave of robust sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic’s automobile industry, precious metal trade, and a ban on purchasing U.S. dollars. Meanwhile, the plight of Iran’s persecuted Christian community has become significantly worse over the past few weeks, with the Islamic Republic ramping up prison terms and other judicial actions. Jeff King, president of the Washington D.C.-based International Christian Concern, told FoxNews.com: “Iran’s regime is under a great amount of pressure right now. “Poor economic conditions combined with the harshness of their Islamic rule has led to massive unrest that has defined the country for months… http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/08/11/iran-regime-ramps-up-crackdown-on-persecuted-christians-after-us-sanctions.html

JORDAN: Bruce Ohr Holds Key to Many Answers in Trump-Russia Investigation

by Sara Carter

{ saraacarter.com } ~ The montage of documents, emails, texts and phone records obtained by congressional oversight committees… from twice-demoted Department of Justice Associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr reveal his close relationship with foreign spy, Christopher Steele. The information also reveals that the FBI used that same spy even after they fired him to continue to collect unverified information in an effort to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. According to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ohr may hold the key to unraveling a good portion of “who was involved and what actually took place” in the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation. Several congressional sources told SaraACarter.com that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is preparing to depose Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr and Glenn Simpson, the founder of the embattled research firm Fusion GPS. The judiciary committee is also planning to depose the former General Counsel for the FBI Jim Baker, who was demoted from his position for allegedly leaking sensitive information to the media. Lawmakers also plan to question Sally Moyer, Jonathan Moffa, and George Toscas. All these interviews will be conducted behind closed doors, the congressional officials noted.   https://saraacarter.com/rep-jordan-bruce-ohr-holds-key-to-many-answers-in-trump-russia-investigation/

FBI fires Peter Strzok, months after anti-Trump texts revealed

by Judson Berger and Brooke Singman

{ foxnews.com } ~ FBI official Peter Strzok, who played a lead role in both the Russian meddling and liar-Hillary Clinton email probes… but became a political lightning rod after the revelation of anti-Trump text messages, has been fired. Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said in a statement Monday that his client, a 21-year FBI veteran, was fired Friday afternoon, claiming this was a departure from standard practice and politically motivated. Goelman said bureau Deputy Director David Bowdich “overruled” the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility to remove him. “This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans,” the attorney said. President Trump and his allies for months, though, have hammered the former FBI agent and cast him as the poster child for anti-Trump bias within the bureau and Justice Department. Reacting to the firing, the president tweeted, “finally,” while asking whether the Russia case will now be dropped…  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/13/fbi-fires-peter-strzok-months-after-anti-trump-texts-revealed.html

MSM Makes Mountain Out of White Nationalist Molehill

by Thomas Gallatin: Leading up to the nothingburger of a white supremacist rally that saw less than two dozen white nationalists show up in Washington, DC, on Sunday, the mainstream media sought to inflate the significance of the event in an attempt to further its long-running “Donald Trump is a racist” narrative. Prior to the event, which was intentionally scheduled to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riot, Trump issued a statement condemning all racism: “The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!” That wasn’t good enough for the Leftmedia, which stoked division anyway.

Also showing up for the poorly named “Unite the Right II” rally — poorly named because it serves the MSM’s conflation of white racism with conservatism — were thousands of counterprotesters who stood shouting down both the white supremacists and Trump. The leftist, violence-seeking agitators known as antifa also showed up clearly prepared for a fight. They screamed chants such as, “Any time, any place, punch a Nazi in the face.” Fortunately, the strong police presence combined with the minuscule size of the white-nationalist contingent proved to thwart their efforts.

Meanwhile in Charlottesville, hundreds of leftist activists took to the streets to ostensibly protest white nationalism and racism — a protest in which no white supremacists were given permission to rally and none showed up. It became increasingly apparent that protesting the police was also on the menu, as numerous protesters chanted, “Cops and Klan go hand in hand,” while others toted a banner that read, “Behind Every Cop, A Klansman.” The irony was that unlike last year, when police presence was severely limited and much fighting was allowed to occur unchecked, the police presence this year was heavy and clearly aimed at preventing any violence.

If anything, this past weekend demonstrates just how vacuous is the MSM’s assertion of Trump’s presidency being responsible for stoking latent masses of white racists. The identity politics of promoting and provoking racial grievances is embraced by dummycrats-Democrats and the Left. It is clearly not popular with conservatives and the vast majority of Trump supporters, no matter how much the Leftmedia claims otherwise.
