Jordan – Clapper Leaked Dossier Briefing to CNN, Leaker Richman Had Special FBI Access

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) says the thing that jumped out at him most about the Comey memos was… the fact that it was Comey himself who provided the “news hook” that enabled CNN to run with the dossier story. His briefing President Trump gave it enough of a hint of legitimacy that it was then within the low journalistic standards to present the Democrat fabrication as fact. Jordan says he believes that pathological liar and former DNI James Clapper was the one who orchestrated the briefing and then immediately afterwards informed CNN that the briefing had taken place. They were then reporting on an actual meeting, the additional layer of protective cover they were looking for to run the “salacious and unverified” work of liar-Clinton fiction. Jordan points out another inconsistency in the narrative of James Comey, his claims that the memos were personal and that, despite them being classified government documents, his making them public wasn’t really a leak. Comey shared them with individuals inside the FBI, McCabe, Jim Baker and Jim Rybicki, all of whom have been removed from their top FBI positions…  https://rickwells.us/jordan-clapper-leaked-dossier-cnn/

Vulnerable red-state Democrats ensure Mike Pompeo’s confirmation

by Susan Ferrechio

{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Sen. Joe Donnelly on Monday became the third Democrat to announce support for Mike Pompeo to become the next secretary of state… assuring Pompeo’s confirmation as early as this week. Donnelly, of Indiana, said in a statement that Pompeo “is capable of advancing U.S. interests and leading the State Department.” Sens. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced they will also vote for Pompeo. All three represent “red” states that voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and all are fighting for re-election in 2018. Many analysts have rated the races in all three states as “toss up,” so the senators’ decision to support Pompeo could help sway voters’ decisions. Trump won Indiana with nearly 57 percent of the vote…  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/vulnerable-red-state-democrats-ensure-mike-pompeos-confirmation


Palestinians: New Twist on an Old Lie

by Bassam Tawil

{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ Denial of Jewish history in Jerusalem and the existence of the Jewish Temple has always been a central component… of the Palestinian narrative and ideology. Palestinians, like members of all societies, disagree on many things. Nevertheless, when it comes to the historical connection between Jews and Jerusalem, Palestinians manage to unite in lies: Palestinian political leaders, academics and religious leaders have long promoted the false narrative that Jerusalem was, and remains, an Arab and Islamic city. We are currently witnessing a new twist on this old lie. It seems that some Palestinians are now trying to deceive the world into believing that they do, indeed, recognize the Jewish people’s historic connection to Jerusalem. The problem is that Palestinian officials tell their people one thing in Arabic and the rest of the world another thing in English. One of these con artists is Husam Zomlot, the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) diplomatic mission in Washington… https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12204/palestinians-jerusalem-lie


The Dire Consequence of the Republicans Losing Congress

by Lloyd Marcus

{ trevorloudon.com } ~ Sammy, our greyhound, is around 100 years old in dog years. His health is failing. Mary and I hate leaving Sammy with our pet-sitter… but we must fly to Arizona to help propel Debbie Lesko to victory in the Congressional 8th district race. https://bit.ly/2J4rRtQ Shockingly, polling shows Lesko and her Democrat opponent are neck and neck. Folks, we cannot allow democrats to regain control of the House and Senate. Folks, I get it. You’re busy earning a living, raising a family and taking the kids to soccer. House and Senate races appear pretty boring and unimportant. However, they are extremely important. Our booming economy, reversals of liar-nObama’s destructive executive orders and Trump restoring power to We the People confirm that Trump is well on his way to making America great again. If the Democrats win back the House and Senate, all Trump’s progress for us will stop. After impeaching Trump, Democrats will revert back to their America in which achievers are demonized and punished. Remarkably, Democrats leftists view our country as the greatest source of evil on the planet. Consequently, Democrats will continue their mission to make America last… http://www.trevorloudon.com/2018/04/the-dire-consequence-of-the-republicans-losing-congress/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+NewZeal+%28New+Zeal+Blog%29

Kim’s Latest Olive Branch: No More Nuclear Tests

by Nate Jackson: Kim Jong-un, the dictator of North Korea and nuclear puppet of China, announced over the weekend that the Hermit Kingdom will immediately suspend testing of missiles and nuclear weapons, as well as scrap its nuclear test site altogether. Of course, Kim couched the announcement as having achieved his goal of developing those weapons, making further testing unnecessary. And, notably, he stopped short of saying North Korea would dismantle its nuclear arsenal. Yet we’ve come a long way from regular missile tests and Kim’s threat last year of “thousands-fold” vengeance against the U.S.

“North Korea has agreed to suspend all Nuclear Tests and close up a major test site,” Trump said publicly. “This is very good news for North Korea and the World — big progress! Look forward to our Summit.” Privately, however, Trump says he’ll believe it when he sees it. After all, the Kim family dictatorship has a long history of making promises only to break them, and Kim’s express purpose up until now was developing weapons capable of striking the U.S.

Kim is set to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in next week and with President Donald Trump sometime in May or June. The latter meeting was announced on the same day Trump laid out his plan for steel tariffs that would hit China. Coincidence? Nope.

There is no doubt that apparent concessions by North Korea are in response to punitive sanctions issued last fall and, more recently, to Trump’s tariffs. Trade negotiations between the U.S. and China are indeed about unfair economic practices on the part of Beijing, but they’re also about convincing China to rein in North Korea. Progress may indeed be happening, even if Kim’s announcement is simply meant to keep talks on track for the time being.

Kim surely hopes that some olive branches will do the trick without having to abandon his nuclear program entirely. But one thing we’re fairly confident of: Trump won’t be making any liar-nObama-Iran deals. He won’t win a Nobel Peace Prize either. ~The Patriot Post
