Tuesday Top News Executive Summary

Media Editors: TRUMP MOVES TO BLOCK SUBPOENAS: The Associated Press reports, “President Donald Trump, his family and the Trump Organization filed a lawsuit against Deutsche Bank and Capital One in an attempt to block congressional subpoenas seeking their banking and financial records. … Two House committees subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and several other financial institutions earlier this month as part of investigations into the Republican president’s finances.” The lawsuit states, “The subpoenas were issued to harass President Donald J. Trump, to rummage through every aspect of his personal finances, his businesses, and the private information of the President and his family, and to ferret about for any material that might be used to cause him political damage.”

ASYLUM OVERHAUL: “President Trump called Monday night for a sweeping overhaul to an asylum system he has long said is rife with fraud — including a new fee to process asylum applicants, and the capacity to rapidly adjudicate applicants’ claims while also barring them from working in the U.S. in the meantime,” according to Fox News. “Immigration courts that process asylum claims currently have a backlog of more than 800,000 cases, and asylum applicants are increasingly staying in the U.S. even after their claims for asylum have been denied.”

socalist-BETO’S GREEN NEW DEAL: Via Fortune: “Democratic presidential hopeful socalist-Beto O’Rourke released a $5 trillion plan to combat climate change over the next decade with a goal of achieving net-zero emissions in the U.S. by 2050. The former congressman … said he would put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement, if elected, and seek legislation in his first 100 days in office to set a ‘legally enforceable’ requirement that the nation remove as much greenhouse gases as it emits, with half of that goal completed by 2030.” Sunrise Movement executive director Varshini Prakash lamented, “socalist-Beto claims to support the Green New Deal, but his plan is out of line with the timeline it lays out and the scale of action that scientists say is necessary to take here in the United States to give our generation a livable future.”

DEMOCRATS’ INFRASTRUCTURE HIJACK: “The top two Democratic leaders on Monday told President Trump that any bipartisan infrastructure package needs to take into consideration climate change and include ‘substantial, new and real revenue’ — a preview of the coming fight over tax hikes. … Democrats want the measure for roads, bridges, waterways and other projects to be paid for with tax increases, and with a final price tag of at least $1 trillion over 10 years.” (The Hill)

ROSENSTEIN MAKES RESIGNATION OFFICIAL: “U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller in May 2017 to investigate links between the Russian government and President Donald Trump’s campaign, said on Monday he was resigning from his post. Rosenstein’s departure, effective May 11, was not a surprise. He had been expected to step down in March. The White House had no immediate comment, but noted that Trump had already nominated Deputy Transportation Secretary Jeffrey Rosen to replace him.” (Reuters)

NRA’S OLD GUARD AND NEW GUARD: “Wayne LaPierre was re-elected chief executive and executive vice president of the National Rifle Association on Monday, surviving a power struggle in which he was challenged by former NRA President Oliver North, who stepped down over the weekend. The NRA board voted unanimously in favor of LaPierre, who has been with the NRA for 40 years and has helped convert it into one of the most powerful lobbies in the United States. … In addition, Carolyn Meadows, a conservative from Georgia who had been part of the NRA leadership, replaced North as president.” (Reuters)

NEW YORK TIMES ANTI-SEMITISM: “The New York Times deleted a political cartoon over the weekend after acknowledging that it contained ‘anti-Semitic tropes,’ an episode decried as the latest example of rising anti-Semitism on the left,” The Washington Times notes, adding, “The New York Times editor’s note was described by some as an apology, although the message did not actually apologize for running the cartoon.” In a statement, the American Jewish Committee said it would not accept the non-apology. “How many @nytimes editors looked at a cartoon that would not have looked out of place on a white supremacist website and thought it met the paper’s editorial standards?”

AFA COMMANDANT OUSTED: According to The Colorado Springs Gazette, “The first openly gay general at the Air Force Academy has been removed as commandant of cadets, but leaders were mum Monday on the exact cause of the apparent firing.” The reason Brig. Gen. Kristin Goodwin was tapped for this post is unfortunate. She wasn’t unqualified, but she had a special “qualification” that other equally skilled candidates didn’t — gender dysphoria. Furthermore, she was removed one month before her rotation would have ended, so there must be something there or she would have just finished up.

VENEZUELA QUIVERS: “Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó took to the streets with activist Leopoldo Lopez and a small contingent of heavily armed troops early Tuesday in a bold and risky call for the military to rise up and oust socialist leader Nicolas Maduro. ‘I want to tell the Venezuelan people: This is the moment to take to the streets and accompany these patriotic soldiers,’ said Lopez, who had been detained since 2014 for leading anti-government protests. ‘Everyone should come to the streets, in peace.’” (Associated Press)

ISIS LEADER OUT OF THE SHADOWS: “Almost five years after he was last seen publicly, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has made a reappearance in an online video, hailing his fighters for not giving up the remnants of the ‘caliphate’ in Syria without a fight, and urging supporters to carry out attacks in France, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere.” (CNSNews.com)

Trump Files Restraining Order Against Democrat scumbag-Elijah Cummings

by americanlibertyreport.com: Ever since President Trump took office, Democrats have clung to the dirty cop-Mueller investigation as their sole beacon of hope. Now that the dirty cop-Mueller investigation is complete, though, and Trump has been cleared of any and all charges… desperation within the Democratic Party has ratcheted up to an 11. It seems Democrats are finally starting to recognize that they are losing this war. However, rather than throwing in the towel and accepting the fact that defeating Trump in 2020 is the only way to remove him from office, House Democrats are trying a new strategy—and this one is the dirtiest trick of all. With the dirty cop-Mueller investigation dead in the water, House Democrats have now moved on to their own unlawful investigations into Trump’s personal finances – a dirty political tactic that has no place in U.S. politics. In typical Trump fashion, though, the President is fighting fire with fire. After House Oversight Committee Chairman scumbag-Elijah Cummings (D-MD) attempted to subpoena Trump’s personal accounting firm Mazars, Trump fought back by filing a restraining order against scumbag-Cummings while Trump’s lawyers are fighting to block what they argue is an unlawful subpoena. First, it’s important to understand that Trump is fighting against scumbag-Cummings and his subpoena as a private citizen of the United States and not as the President. The information that scumbag-Cummings is demanding in his subpoena has nothing to do with the White House or Trump’s actions as President…  https://www.americanlibertyreport.com/articles/trump-files-restraining-order-against-democrat-elijah-cummings/

House Judiciary Chairman scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler Attempts Rule Changes for AG Barr Appearance

by sundance

{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Obvious political games are afoot when House Judiciary Chairman scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler is more interested in the testimony of Attorney General Bill Barr about the dirty cop-Mueller report… while simultaneously ignoring author of the report, dirty cop-Robert Mueller, himself. Additionally, House and Senate Democrats are refusing to read the classified and fully unredacted dirty cop-Mueller report unless it is made public. This is all part of their ridiculous games.[…] scumbag liar-Nadler, wants to allow all members of his panel at Thursday’s hearing to have one round of questioning of five minutes each, according to the source. He also wants to allow for a subsequent round of questioning of 30 minutes for each side, allowing both parties’ committee counsels to also engage in questioning during their respective turns — which has turned into a key sticking point for the Justice Department. “The attorney general agreed to appear before Congress. Therefore, members of Congress should be the ones doing the questioning,” said Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec. “He remains happy to engage with members on their questions regarding the dirty cop-Mueller report.” scumbag liar-Nadler also is proposing that the committee should go into closed session to discuss the sections of the report that are redacted… https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/04/28/house-judiciary-chairman-jerry-nadler-attempts-rule-changes-for-ag-barr-appearance/

Global Warming Going the way of Russia Collusion

by Brian C. Joondeph

{americanthinker.com} ~ The last thing we expect mid-spring is snow. Yet that’s just what we have. As the Weather Channel reports, “It may be late April, but Winter Storm Xyler will make you forget that it is spring in the Midwest this weekend… as it is expected to bring some unusually heavy late season snowfall.” Snow is heading to New York as well, despite the state’s all-out effort to combat global warming by attempting to ban plastic straws and now hot dogs. From the New York Post, “Upstate NY may get up to 3 inches of snow this weekend.” Across the country in Denver, the weather won’t be much different, as The Denver Channel reports, “Mild through the weekend, cold, rain and snow next week!” What’s going on? I thought the planet was heating up, with melting icecaps, rising sea levels, and less than 12 years before the earth burns to a crisp? We have been hearing this song and dance for several decades now. The global warming chicken littles keep telling us that snow is a thing of the past and we had better get used to it, along with a warming planet. In 2000, British newspaper The Independent ran this headline, “Snowfalls are just a thing of the past.” In 2014, The New York Times ran a sequel headline, “The end of snow?” Yet here we are, at the end of April, planting our gardens and facing snow in much of the country. If this is evidence of global warming, then commie-Bernie Sanders’s popularity is evidence that the Democrat Party has shifted to the right. Good luck selling that. One important factor always neglected by the climate warriors is the Sun, a ball of fire a million times larger than the Earth, the source of life on Earth, as well as destruction if the fires ever were extinguished, or expanded. If we were a few million miles closer to or further from the Sun, life on Earth would cease to exist. Just look at Venus and Mars, neighboring planets either too hot or too cold, respectively, for life as we know it…  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/04/global_warming_going_the_way_of_russia_collusion.html

Sally Yates -vs- Michael Flynn

by sundance

{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Prior to March 9th, 2016, the political surveillance and spy operations of the scumbag/liar-nObama administration were using the FBI and NSA database to track/monitor their opposition… However, once the NSA compliance officer began initiating an internal review of who was accessing the system, the CIA and FBI moved to create ex post facto justification for their endeavors. After the November 8th, 2016, election everyone within the scumbag/liar-nObama network associated with the Trump surveillance operation was at risk. This is the impetus for the “Muh Russia” collusion- conspiracy narrative that was used as a mitigating shield. Within a few days after the election ODNI scumbag-James Clapper and CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan began pushing the Russia election interference narrative in the media. Without notifying anyone, NSA Director Mike Rogers went to Trump tower on November 18th, 2016. Despite his compartmentalization it appears Rogers identified the NSA database abuse as the likely underpinning for some form of political surveillance. By mid-December 2016 the scumbag/liar-nObama administration was deploying a full-court-press using their media allies to promote the Russia conspiracy. However, despite their public proclamations scumbag-Clapper and scumbag/commie-Brennan were refusing to give any specifics to congress. The hard narrative was that Russia interfered. That was the specific push from within the scumbag/liar-nObama intelligence apparatus writ large. All IC officials, sans Mike Rogers (NSA), had a self-interest in pushing this narrative; after all, it was the defensive mechanism to justify their illegal spying operation throughout 2016. This was their insurance policy… https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/04/28/sally-yates-vs-michael-flynn/

Finnish MP Under Fire for Comparing Israel to ISIS

by Benjamin Weinthal

{ jpost.com } ~ The newly elected Finnish MP Hussein al-Taee of the Social Democratic Party of Finland (SDP) is facing a wave of criticism this week for comparing Israel to the Islamic State… antisemitic rants against Jews and pro-Iranian regime advocacy. The Finnish-Kurdish blogger and civil rights activist Anter Yasa told The Jerusalem Post that on Sunday, he first revealed the antisemitic Facebook posts allegedly written by al-Taee, who is also an enthusiastic supporter of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Speaking from Helsinki, Yasa said “I am pretty sure all of the posts are real and al-Taee has confirmed his antisemitic statements.” Dr. Efraim Zuroff, the head of the Jerusalem office of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, told the Post on Sunday, “This guy Hussein al-Taee is obviously an antisemite.” Zuroff said al-Taee’s comments raise questions about how he could be elected to parliament and how the NGO Crisis Management Initiative (CMI) can employ him. According to a screenshot by Yasa and reviewed by the Post, al-Taee wrote about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2012, saying, “Jew doing what a Jew does best. F***s up everybody to gain everything.” Al-Taee told the Finnish News Agency STT, “I want to apologize for comparing Israel to ISIS, because the comment was simply stupid and it does not in any way represent my opinions or values.”…  https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Antisemitism/Finnish-MP-under-fire-for-comparing-Israel-to-ISIS-588084
