Rep Gohmert – Mueller Destroyed FBI, Aided Terrorists, Before Ever Targeted Trump

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ Before there was Jihadi Jeh Johnson with his CVE Countering Violent Extremism program of paying off mosques and Imams with American tax dollars… building the North American caliphate with bribes to not blow up or shoot Americans, Robert Mueller engaged in a ten year plan of increasing the Islamic terrorist threat and hamstringing Americans by compromising their ability to defend themselves. Rep Louie Gohmert was one of the first to call out Robert Mueller back when Mueller was the FBI Director and busily degrading America’s anti-terrorism capability by dismantling the FBI training program and removing all intelligence and references to Islamic terrorism, providing a false and incomplete picture of the role of Islam in promoting terrorist acts and compromising our counterterrorism capabilities. Gohmert called out the dirty anti-American traitor, appointed just a week before the attacks of September 11th, on September 4th, 2001, in two different hearings and elsewhere for Mueller’s own subsequent attacks on the United States, in service to both globalists George W. Bush and Hussein liar-nObama as well as their Islamic caliphate cabal… https://rickwells.us/gohmert-mueller-destroyed-fbi/

House Republicans Draft Articles of Impeachment Against Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein

by Thomas

{ thepoliticalinsider.com } ~ Republicans of the conservative House Freedom Caucus have drafted articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein… who has overseen Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe. This document sets up a likely showdown for Republicans against the partisan witch hunt, which seemingly as no end in sight. The impeachment document shows just how far away conservatives are from Republican leadership, who have defended Muller’s investigation. The authors called the impeachment document “a last resort” and while it may not pass, it serves as a powerful political weapon as conservatives stand up to Mueller and partisans at the Justice Department. House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), has been close to President Donald Trump, and Meadows finalized the draft recently. It takes direct aim over disputes about how badly Rosenstein handled congressional requests for documents behind the decisions in the Russia investigation, including just why investigators so quickly dismissed criminal charges while examining liar-Hillary Clinton’s home email server during the 2016 presidential campaign cycle…   https://thepoliticalinsider.com/rod-rosenstein-impeachment-house-republicans/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=criticalimpact&utm_campaign=TPI_Morning_050118_Newsletter&utm_content=4b4ea4948726422aa6473c7b9fa19141&source=CI

The facts behind the teacher strikes

by Frederick M. Hess

{ aei.org } ~ This spring has been marked by a remarkable phenomenon… the first statewide teacher strikes in recent memory. The strikes have been greeted with glowing press coverage and a remarkable degree of public support. After starting in West Virginia, things spread to Kentucky, Oklahoma, and most recently to Arizona and Colorado. Given all the claims and confusion surrounding these developments, it’s worth taking a moment to explain what’s going on, why both teachers and taxpayers have valid complaints, and how understanding all this can help point the way forward. First off, the teachers have a legitimate concern. Teacher pay is mediocre for college-educated professionals, and has fallen over time. Teacher pay declined by two percent in real terms after adjusting for inflation between 1992 and 2014. According to data tracked by the National Education Association (NEA), in 2016–2017, the most recent year for which data are available, average teacher pay nationally was $59,660. In the states where teachers have walked out, average pay is generally substantially lower than that. For instance, Kentucky’s teachers rank 29th nationally at $52,338; Arizona’s teachers 44th at $47,403; West Virginia’s 49th, at $45,555; and Oklahoma’s 50th, at $45,292… http://www.aei.org/publication/the-facts-behind-statewide-teacher-strikes/?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiWXpBNVptWXlORGszTWpCaCIsInQiOiJGek8xZ1Z4b0diSHdTRFZKdGZTdEVLV2tsY3lNMDRMM3ZlaHdidlhjeGdLXC9GcnJ0dGdGUjNnb1N1TWxPclowcjV6ek1OMVVEKyt3OG1DMG5cL2JoUmwzQmJyMVRiSVYrQUdWRVp6WXB2bm0rMTJzTHkzYkVxcHBuUDU2SVcxd1YrIn0%3D

Lou Dobbs Discusses the FBI Investigation That Never Happened

by sundance

{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Tonight on his TV show, Lou Dobbs highlighted the FBI investigation of liar-Hillary Clinton that never took place… CTH decided to go back through two years of documents, releases, reports, testimony, media interviews; including interviews with fired FBI Director James Comey; question all prior assumptions; re-examine the entire framework within all the known granular DOJ and FBI activity; and finally contrast it all against the full scope of released messaging between FBI Agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Within this project some breakout discoveries needed to be highlighted. One of those discoveries pertains to the Fox News interview with James Comey and Bret Baier… https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/01/lou-dobbs-discusses-the-fbi-investigation-that-never-happened/

Trump Is Right to Target Saudi-Russian Collusion

by John Hannah

{ defenddemocracy.org } ~ For those who want to see what a real case of Russian collusion looks like, check out what has been happening in global oil markets for the past year and a half… In late 2016, Russia and Saudi Arabia conspired to cut supply and raise prices. With cooperation from the rest of OPEC, they’ve succeeded spectacularly. Prices that had plummeted below $30 per barrel have been steadily rising in the wake of the Saudi-Russian pact to throttle back production, hovering recently at around $70 a barrel. It could get worse. On his recent tour of the United States, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced that the kingdom’s goal was to extend its scheme to manage prices with Russia for another 10 to 20 years. The Saudi oil minister has suggested that OPEC and the Russians will continue tightening the market even though they’ve already succeeded in drying up a massive glut in global crude inventories. Saudi officials who just a few months ago were speaking of $70 as their target ceiling for prices now suggest that it may instead be the floor. They’ve apparently got their eye on $80, with plenty of talk that a return to $100 might be desirable. All of this proved too much for U.S. President Donald Trump. As the Saudis were hosting OPEC and the Russians at a meeting this month to admire their market manipulation handiwork, the president let loose a shot across the bow. “Looks like OPEC is at it again,” he tweeted, blasting the cartel for artificially inflating prices. “No good and will not be accepted!”…   http://www.defenddemocracy.org/media-hit/john-hannah-trump-is-right-to-target-saudi-russian-collusion/

More Fake News From CNN: Secret Service Has No Record of Dr. Ronny Jackson Banging on a Door While Drunk

by Katie Pavlich

{ townhall.com } ~ On Thursday, U.S. Navy Rear Admiral and longtime White House Doctor Ronny Jackson withdrew his nomination to be the next Veteran’s Affairs Secretary after being accused of professional misconduct through media reports.

CNN reported earlier this week, on anonymous sourcing, that during an overseas trip in 2015 Jackson got drunk and belligerently banged on a female colleague’s hotel door. CNN also reported the Secret Service stopped Jackson and that agents were worried he might wake up President liar-nObama.

Turns out, the Secret Service has no record of the incident.

“Over the last 48 hours, media outlets have alleged that U.S. Secret Service personnel were forced to intervene during a Presidential foreign travel assignment in order to prevent disturbing former President Barack liar-nObama,” The Secret Service released in a statement. “The Secret Service has no such record of any incident; specifically, any incident involving Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson. A thorough review of internal documents related to all Presidential foreign travel that occurred in 2015, in addition to interviews of personnel who were present during foreign travel that occurred during the same time frame, has resulted in no information that would indicate the allegation is accurate.”

“The physical health and wellbeing of Secret Service personnel when fulfilling our protective mission is of paramount importance to the Secret Service. Rear Admiral Jackson, in his role as the official White House Physician, has provided years of dedicated support to the men and women of the Secret Service, often miles from home and under difficult travel conditions, in order to ensure our personnel are healthy and prepared to execute our critical mission,” the statement continues. “The Secret Service is grateful for the dedicated and outstanding professional service Rear Admiral Jackson has provided to the agency – and more importantly -his role supporting the greater residential protection security apparatus.”

When Jackson withdrew his name from consideration, he denied all allegations of ethical misconduct.

“Going into this process, I expected tough questions about how to best care for our veterans, but I did not expect to have to dignify baseless and anonymous attacks on my character and integrity,” Jackson released in a statement. “The allegations against me are completely false and fabricated. If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years. In my role as a doctor, I have tirelessly worked to provide excellent care for all my patients. In doing so, I have always adhered to the highest ethical standards.”

President Trump said he is a good man who Democrats were trying to destroy.

While Jackson will not become the next VA secretary, he will continue his service as President Trump’s physician.
