Trump Campaign Sells “Fredo Unhinged” T-Shirts After Chris Cuomo Goes Crazy on MAGA Supporter

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 23:04

The Trump campaign went into overdrive on Tuesday and unveiled new “Fredo Unhinged” t-shirts for sale.

“Get your commemorative #FredoCuomo Unhinged shirt today! We only have a limited supply of the shirt, which was inspired by the epic & historic viral video of @CNN’s @ChrisCuomo meltdown!” Parscale said in a tweet linking to the Trump campaign store.

Trump’s camp posted a brief message next to the t-shirts which sell for $34.00 each:

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is Fredo!

The truth hurts. He totally lost it.

Help us annoy Chris Cuomo and buy your “Fredo Unhinged Tee” now!

Parscale trolled Fredo Cuomo and thanked him for helping fill up Trump’s 2020 campaign coffers.

Selling faster than Fredo's meltdown! Thank you #FredoCuomo for filling up our coffers. You have now directly supported the POTUS! https://t.co/UP0vhijJJB

By now, virtually everyone has seen the viral video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo going crazy after a Trump supporter in New York called him “Fredo” to his face — Fredo, a nickname that is meant to be an insult to Cuomo, is from the movie The Godfather to describe him as the weaker, less intelligent brother in the Corleone crime family.

“We’re gonna have a f*ckin problem,” Cuomo said to the Trump supporter who asked to take a picture with him.

Cuomo lost his cool and threatened the Trump supporter and told him he was going to throw him “down the f*cking stairs.”

“I’ll f*ckin ruin your shit. I’ll f*ckin throw you down the stairs like a f*ckin punk!” Cuomo said.

The video of Cuomo going crazy on a MAGA supporter immediately went viral on social media Monday evening and by Tuesday morning Trump was already mocking “Fredo.”

A few hours later, Trump’s 2020 campaign is selling “Fredo Unhinged” t-shirts — this is going to be one hell of an election year!

“Welcome to the Thunder Dome… Debate Me” Barstool Sports Founder Dave Portnoy Drops in on AOC

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 22:29

David Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, also known as “El Presidente” by his followers, dropped in on Communist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday and challenged her to a debate over unions.

Earlier Tuesday, Portnoy fired off a series of tweets hammering unions and linked to a 2015 blog post where he said if any of his own employees dared to unionize, he would “smash their little union to smithereens.”

Rafi Letzter, a Life and Science writer, challenged Portnoys employees and told them to “DM” him if they want to chat about the unionization process.

Portnoy, who is known for his sarcastic and fiery commentary shot back and threatened to can any employees who DM Letzter — of course his tweet may have been a joke.

But AOC took Portnoy’s tweet seriously and called him out.

If you’re a boss tweeting firing threats to employees trying to unionize, you are likely breaking the law &can be sued,in your words, “on the spot.”

ALL workers in the US have the protected freedom to organize for better conditions.

See @NLRB &union orgs like @AFLCIO for tips. https://t.co/bU7WlHrp1d

Portnoy fired back at AOC and set Twitter ablaze.

UPDATE: SHOTS FIRED into Occupied San Antonio ICE Building – One Person Injured — SUSPECTS STILL AT LARGE! … Officials Blame Politicians and Media

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 22:00


KENS5 footage

A shooter fired several shots at a San Antonio ICE office in the city.

The building was occupied at the time.

San Antonio police later arrested a suspect behind the shooting.

One person was injured.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Police in San Antonio arrested a man early Tuesday morning in connection with gunshots fired through the windows of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in the city, according to local media reports.

Local law enforcement responded around 3 a.m. CT Tuesday to shots fired at the ICE field office located north of Interstate 410 near Brookhaven Drive.

Police told News 4 the man is believed to have fired the shots from across the highway into the windows of the building. The building does not have bulletproof windows, and at least one shot penetrated a window.

There has been no comment from the radical Democrat “Squad” members as of this morning.

Awaiting comment from AOC and the rest of The Squad.

UPDATE: The possible suspect was released this morning and was not connected to the shooting.

Police are still searching for suspects.

News4SA reported:

ICE ERO San Antonio Field Office Director Daniel Bible says the national discourse surrounding ICE and the topic of immigration is reckless, blaming today’s shooting on politicians, media and activists.

“This attack at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Office in San Antonio is completely without justification,” said Bible. “Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts. ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk.”

A person was detained shortly after the shooting, but was released after it was found out they were not connected with the shooting.

If you know anything about the attack, the FBI is asking you to contact their San Antonio field office. The FBI says it is worried of another possible shooting.

Democrat House Foreign Affairs Chairman Warns Foreign Officials to ‘Cease and Desist’ Spending Money at Trump Hotels

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 21:50


Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY)

Democrat House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (NY) on Tuesday announced he will be warning foreign officials against spending money at President Trump’s hotels, arguing it violates the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

The emoluments clause is a provision that bars US presidents from accepting gifts from foreign governments without permission from Congress first.

The Hill reported:

In a memo dated on Monday, Engel instructed Democratic committee staff who meet with foreign officials to warn that spending money at Trump-owned properties may be a violation of the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, which states that presidents cannot accept money or gifts from foreign governments without consent from Congress.

“When meeting with officials from a foreign government, please inform them that by providing any form of payment or benefit to a Trump-owned property their government is facilitating the president’s apparent violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause,” Engel’s memo states. “Please urge those foreign officials to transmit to their governments that the House Foreign Affairs Committee requests that they cease and desist payments to the Trump Organization unless and until Congress approves the emolument, as provided in the Constitution.”

Engel’s warning comes as a lawsuit brought by over 200 rabid Congressional Democrats seeking a DC federal court to require that Trump get approval from lawmakers before he accepts any financial benefits from foreign governments makes its way through the legal system.

Loser Democrat lawmakers, who couldn’t even run a successful lemonade stand, are targeting president Trump and accusing him of violating the very rarely litigated emoluments clause of the US Constitution by claiming his luxury hotels which are blocks from the White House is evidence Trump is receiving benefits.

Things aren’t looking so good for Engel and the Democrats because Trump already won a similar case in court brought by attorneys general in DC and Maryland.

In a huge win for Trump, the case against him was dismissed with prejudice.

Last month the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed a lawsuit filed by DC and Maryland claiming President Trump was violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution because foreign government officials stay at Trump’s DC hotel.

“Indeed, there is a distinct possibility — which was completely ignored by the District and Maryland, as well as by the district court — that certain government officials might avoid patronizing the Hotel because of the President’s association with it,” Judge Paul Niemeyer, a George H.W. Bush appointee wrote last month.

“And, even if government officials were patronizing the Hotel to curry the President’s favor, there is no reason to conclude that they would cease doing so were the President enjoined from receiving income from the Hotel,” Niemeyer continued. “After all, the Hotel would still be publicly associated with the President, would still bear his name, and would still financially benefit members of his family.”

The Democrats do not legislate. All they do is use time and resources to harass President Trump.

Max Boot responds to NRO’s rebuttal to his absurd white-people-shaming column with even more ‘transparent nonsense’ and smears

Twitchy - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 21:49

As Twitchy told you yesterday, Max Boot got very upset at Buckley Fellow John Hirschauer for calling him out in National Review over a ridiculous opinion column whose thrust was basically that white people can either be self-loathing or white supremacists.

Wow. I've been accused by white supremacists of being a "self-loathing white" who is "stoking the flames of race hatred" by denouncing racism. But did not expect to be so attacked in @NRO. A sad indication of what's happened to mainstream conservatism. https://t.co/Xuwz9GiExX

— Max Boot (@MaxBoot) August 12, 2019

Boot figured that the only possible explanation for Hirschauer’s rebuttal was that Hirschauer is a white supremacist.

It makes sense if you’re a white supremacist. https://t.co/eJGjsZeWVN

— Max Boot (@MaxBoot) August 12, 2019

But instead of quitting while he was behind, Boot decided instead to double down today:

I grew up reading @NRO. Its founder, William F. Buckley Jr., was a childhood hero. So it was a shock on Monday afternoon to see myself attacked in National Review as, essentially, a traitor to the white race. My @PostOpinions column: https://t.co/Nylc6u9cga

— Max Boot (@MaxBoot) August 13, 2019

We’d post an excerpt, but honestly, the whole thing is ridiculous.

I find Boot's reaction to be hysterical and out of proportion. I think he thinks it's an attempt to police the way we have this conversation, but it's just making things worse–which is kind of what the NR article was saying.

— Robert Tracinski (@Tracinski) August 13, 2019

The article in question accused Boot of generalizing about people by their skin color and portraying anyone who disagrees with him of being a white supremecist. Boot reacted to it by accusing National Review and the author of essentially being white surprmecists. Beyond parody. pic.twitter.com/XXKs4n1xVj

— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) August 13, 2019

And of course all the other clowns who have adopted all the dishonest tactics of the left are cheering this on.

Here is the article in question. Boot is obsession over one particular phrase while ignoring the substantive argument. https://t.co/71Je16DKaV

— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) August 13, 2019

In other words, Boot’s piece is right up Tom Nichols’ alley:

From @MaxBoot – Opinion | National Review’s ugly attack on me reflects the Trumpification of conservatism https://t.co/wfBp2wjaLm

— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) August 13, 2019

Tom, I think Boot is being hysterical here.

— Robert Tracinski (@Tracinski) August 13, 2019

Saying that everybody who disagrees with you is in the KKK is the left's thing. We shouldn't horn in on it.

— Robert Tracinski (@Tracinski) August 13, 2019

I think they outsourced a hit job on him to an intern in a piece that shouldn't have run and now they're pretending like it was just another article. "One of the self-loathing whites" is pure alt-right bullshit and NR should be ashamed to have published it.

— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) August 13, 2019

“An intern.”

Do you even know how the NRI fellowship works? Hirschauer is a fellow there and they write pieces at NRO. It's the same program that people like Elaina Plott, Robert Costa, Betsy Woodruff, Xan DeSanctis, etc. Boot was trying to play the woke "Listen up here, white people" role

— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) August 13, 2019

I'm sorry, does that now mean it was a good piece that an editor shouldn't have worked with him on?

— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) August 13, 2019

That has nothing to do with what you said, Tom. You said it was "outsourced to an intern" like he's some coffee fetcher. Try harder.

— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) August 13, 2019

Intellectual honesty is too much work. And it’s certainly no substitute for those sweet, sweet Resistance clicks.

The author specifically rejects white nationalism and white grievance politics. Further, he is specifically calling out Boot w/ specific examples for generalizing about (white) people, but Boot portrays that rejection of bigotry as bigotry.

It's such transparent nonsense.

— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) August 13, 2019

It's hard to overstate just how dishonestly Boot reframed the piece, or how ridiculous it is that he's turned it into a column, or how much respect is being flushed down the drain by ppl gleefully taking his side because they haven't read the NRO piece.

— Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) August 13, 2019

It's rather obvious that most of the people responding didn't read the piece. They just accepted Boot's framing and are now ranting about Trumpification or some nonsense.

— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) August 13, 2019

Boot, Rubin, Nichols etc. can't even argue substance anymore. They haven't just adopted the left's politics, but also the dishonest tactics that dominant certain sectors of the left.

They lie about their opponents and then count on each other to spread the lies.

— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) August 13, 2019

Hey, it seems to be working for them. And if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

I mean these are almost back to back tweets. He goes from praising Buckley as his childhood hero to agreeing with Tim Wise 's blatant smear against Buckley.

This is not a serious person. pic.twitter.com/venMCdTy0u

Max Boot forfeited the right to be taken seriously a long time ago.

Breaking: FTC Chairman Joe Simmons Says He’s Prepared to Break Up Far Left Big Tech Firms

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 21:38

In November 2018 The Guardian reported on  group of Google employees who published an open letter calling on their employer to cancel its plans to build a censored search engine for China.  This was the latest expression of worker unrest at a company that earlier in 2018 saw thousands stage walkouts over its handling of sexual misconduct cases.

The Google employees were very upset that Google’s Project Dragonfly would allow the Chinese government to blacklist certain search terms.  The employees said,  “Many of us accepted employment at Google with the company’s values in mind…  After a year of disappointments … we no longer believe this is the case.”

Just months later it is now obvious that Google, Facebook and Twitter are using their own blacklists of prominent conservatives and their supporters.

If you search Google for prominent conservative voices including: Mike Cernovich, Joe diGenova, Jack Posobiec or Gateway Pundit you will see hit pieces and biased attacks.  The Gateway Pundit is one of the largest, most accurate and most influential publishers in the country today.  In the last month if you search Google for “Gateway Pundit” the first item that it pulls up is a pdf of Jim Hoft’s speech to Congress.  The line item says: “Gateway Pundit – Congressman Steve King”. It is a pdf! We have written hundreds of stories that changed the media narrative in the US and this pdf is the first item the pops up?  Most likely it is because some Google jack*ss wanted to link us to Republican Rep. King who the left has smeared as a racist.

You have to go to the fifth item before you can even find a link to our website.

If you are on Facebook You may have noticed you no longer get to choose what you will see or read. Facebook makes that decision for you today. Facebook eliminated over one billion page views to conservative websites after the 2016 election. So if you no longer see articles from your favorite conservative publishers there’s a reason for that.

And thanks to Allum Bokhari at Breitbart News we also know that Facebook has compiled a “hate agents list” of prominent pages to eliminate traffic to the pages. The list includes Candace Owens and Brigitte Gabriel, two popular and prominent conservatives. There is no telling how many more conservatives are on the list but surely it is in the hundreds.

Twitter also has its blacklists to shadow-ban or eliminates prominent conservative voices including President Trump.

In July 2018 we reported that a study by the leftist website VICE News found that Twitter is censoring top pro-Trump lawmakers.   Twitter is targeting pro-Trump Republican lawmakers Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and John Ratcliffe with the same shadowbanning technique.

Twitter is also censoring prominent pro-Trump accounts including: Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, Paul Joseph Watson, TGP’s Jim Hoft, TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks and Laura Loomer among others.

The tech giants are already implementing their Chinese tested blacklists to eliminate conservative voices online.  It’s a good thing for them that there is no Republican who really gives a damn about this enough to take any action.  Soon it will be too late to reverse this trend.

The Trump administration has repeatedly promised to take action against these far left villains.

On Tuesday the FTC Chairman Joe Simons said that breaking up these powerful far left tech companies may be the right remedy to rein them in and restore competition.
This is long overdue.

Bloomberg.com reported:

U.S. Federal Trade Commission is prepared to break up major technology platforms if necessary by undoing their past mergers, Chairman Joe Simons said on Tuesday in an interview to Bloomberg, as the agency anti-competitive practices in the sector.

Simons said in the interview that breaking up a company is challenging, but could be the right remedy to rein in dominant companies and restore competition.

He is leading a broad review of the technology sector to see whether companies including Facebook Inc are harming competition.

CNN’s Don Lemon Sued For Allegedly ‘Vigorously Rubbing His Genitalia’ Then Sticking His Fingers in a Man’s Face

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 21:23

CNN’s Don Lemon is being sued for allegedly putting his hand down his shorts, “vigorously” rubbing his genitalia and shoving “his index and middle fingers into a man’s moustache at a bar.

The incident allegedly took place at a Sag Harbor bar called Murf’s last summer.

Dustin Hice, the man suing Lemon, claims that prior to the incident he had offered to buy Lemon a drink and he declined.

Mediaite reports that “later in the night, according to Hice, Lemon approached him and his group of friends and, after putting his hand down his shorts he ‘vigorously rubbed his genitalia’ and ‘shoved his index and middle fingers into [Hice’s] moustache.'”

The lawsuit states:

“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff ‘Do you like pussy or dick?’. While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”

The suit says that Hice was left with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt,” following the incident.

CNN is standing by Lemon, claiming that Hice had posted anti-CNN sentiments on his social media accounts.

“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a CNN spokesperson told Mediaite in a statement. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”

The lawsuit comes just one day after CNN’s Chris Cuomo was caught on camera aggressively threatening to shove a man down a flight over stairs over being called “Fredo,” the dumb brother from the Godfather, which insulted him.

Killer Cop Who Shared Cell with Epstein The First Time He Was Found Unconscious — Says He Heard Nothing the Night Epstein Died

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 20:03


Nick Tartaglione Flickr

66-year-old financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell on Saturday morning.
Epstein was the highest profile prisoner in the US prison system at the time of his death.

The multi-millionaire financier was hospitalized in July after he was found unresponsive in what appeared to be a possible suicide attempt.

According to reports Epstein told authorities someone tried to kill him in a previous incident weeks earlier.

People close to Epstein fear he was murdered…as Epstein told authorities someone tried to kill him in a previous incident weeks earlier. He was described as being in good spirits in recent days… https://t.co/J9QNSo1N2v

— Carol Leonnig (@CarolLeonnig) August 10, 2019

After the July incident he was reportedly put under suicide watch.

Then late last week prison officials moved his roommate Nick Tartaglione.

Tartaglione is an ex-Westchester cop who faces the death penalty in a quadruple homicide upstate.

According to The New York Post Tartaglione, 51, is awaiting trial on charges he murdered four men as part of a drug deal gone bad. He is accused of burying the bodies on his Otisville property.

Prison officials put an alleged mass killer who is looking at the death penalty in the same cell with the top prisoner in the US prison system.

On Saturday, Tartaglione,  who was moved a few cells away from Epstein,  said,  “Nobody heard anything. It was a silent act,” his lawyer Bruce Barket told NBC News.

Conflicting reports say screaming and shrieking were heard from Epstein’s cell.

Epstein is said to have feared him and the former Briarcliffe Manor cop was questioned following the pedophiles previous suicide attempt in July.  As Cassandra Fairbanks reported earlier today the now deceased financier said the first medical emergency three weeks ago was actually an attack on his life.

Chris Cuomo Once Referred to Himself as Fredo on NY City Radio Show

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 19:11

This is CNN.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo exploded after a Trump supporter in New York called him “Fredo” to his face — Fredo, a nickname that is meant to be an insult to Cuomo, is from the movie The Godfather to describe him as the weaker, less intelligent brother in the Corleone crime family.

“We’re gonna have a f*ckin problem,” Cuomo said to the Trump supporter who asked to take a picture with him.

Cuomo lost his cool and threatened the Trump supporter and told him he was going to throw him “down the f*cking stairs.”

“I’ll f*ckin ruin your shit. I’ll f*ckin throw you down the stairs like a f*ckin punk!” Cuomo said.

Warning on language:

Now this…
But back in 2010 Chris Cuomo referred to himself as Fredo on a New York City morning show.

The New York Post reported:

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who was captured on a viral video getting into a profanity-laced exchange with a person who called him “Fredo,” once referred to himself as the hapless “The Godfather” character in a radio interview.

The Godbothered: CNN’s Chris Cuomo loses it over ‘Fredo’ jab
Cuomo was interviewed by Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010 about whether his brother Andrew might seek the Democratic nomination for governor.
Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.”

“There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.”

“Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

“Yes, exactly,” Sliwa said. “So you better be careful that your brother Andrew doesn’t kiss you on both cheeks and then all of a sudden they take you out on the middle of the lake and where’s Chris?”

“He kisses me plenty because he’s a great big brother,” Cuomo said.

Americans Apply For Jobs at Mississippi Chicken Plants After ICE Raid

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 19:05

Americans in need of work applied for jobs at the Mississippi chicken plants recently raided by ICE.

A job fair attracted nearly 150 locals looking for work after ICE raided and removed hundreds of illegal aliens working at the Koch Foods’ (unrelated to Koch brothers) plants in Mississippi.

How could this be? The Commie-media complex told us that illegal aliens do the work Americans refuse to do.

The Clarion Ledger reported:

About 25 to 30 people showed up to apply for jobs at Koch Foods’ nearby poultry processing plant. Of those, about an equal number were black, white or Latino.

“This is what you’d normally see here,” said Dianne Bell, communications director for the Mississippi Department of Employment Security, of the job fair held between 9 and 11 a.m.

Dozens more showed up in response to online ads looking to hire plant workers.

The Associated Press reported that many of the people who applied to work at the Koch Foods’ plants were chicken plant veterans — mostly black and white males looking for work.

The 25-year-old [Eddie Nicholson] has worked in chicken plants before and was considering a return, but wanted to see if wages had gone up. Plants in recent years have typically paid $11 to $12 an hour, according to labor statistics, but Nicholson said he wants $15 an hour.

Like Nicholson, many who applied Monday were chicken plant veterans. They understand the arduous and sometimes dangerous work of slaughtering, butchering and packaging chicken, from hanging up live chickens, to pulling off skin, to cutting with super-sharp knives, to boxing up chicken, much of it done in near-freezing temperatures. The line moves fast and people repeat the same motions over and over.

“It’s definitely hard,” said Cedric Griffith of Magee, who said he’s been working at McDonald’s after getting fired from another chicken processor for missing too many days. “You’re going to lose of lot of weight. Nine times out of 10, when that week is over, you’re tired.”

Seven food processing plants were raided by ICE agents last Wednesday evening and 680 suspected illegals were taken into custody.

It was the largest workplace enforcement actions in the nation’s history, according to a statement released by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of Mississippi.

However, approximately 300 of the 680 illegal aliens detained in massive ICE raids in Mississippi last week were released the same day.

Breitbart News reported on the immigration numbers:

Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university. This total includes roughly 800,000 Americans who graduate with skilled degrees in business or health care, engineering or science, software or statistics.

But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately 1 million H-1B workers and spouses — plus roughly 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.

The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.

This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it transfers wages to investors and ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.

Until the companies hiring illegal aliens are severely punished, the vicious cycle of illegal aliens entering the country only to take jobs and benefits from American citizens will never stop.

Warden of Jail Where Epstein Died to Be Reassigned, Two Staff Members From His Unit Placed on Administrative Leave

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 18:51

The Bureau of Prisons is temporarily reassigning the warden of New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center and has placed two staff members assigned to Jeffrey Epstein’s unit on administrative leave.

The warden’s reassignment comes at the order of Attorney General William Barr.

Justice Spokesperson Kerri Kupec announced the administrative leave of the two other staff members on Tuesday afternoon, the Hill reports.

CBS News, citing an unnamed source, also reported on Tuesday that “shrieking and shouting” was heard coming from Epstein’s cell on the morning of his death. The source also said they heard corrections officers saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe,” while trying to revive him.

The cellmate of Epstein was transferred out of their shared cell on the eve of the high profile prisoner’s death, leaving him alone and unmonitored.

Epstein, 66, was being held in the special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City and was supposed to be being checked on every 30 minutes per the jail’s procedure — but he wasn’t.

“But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him,” the Washington Post reports.

Epstein’s cellmate prior to his most recent one was a hulking ex-cop, Nicholas Tartaglione, who has been charged with murdering four men in a cocaine conspiracy. Epstein is said to have feared him and the former Briarcliffe Manor cop was questioned following the pedophiles previous suicide attempt in July — which the financier said was actually an attack on his life.

“Remember previous incident July 23: it was never cleared up whether Epstein had been attacked, as he said, or if he was covering up his own suicide attempt,” Washington Post reporter Carol Leonning noted.

According to a report from the Associated Press, along with Epstein not being checked on, his being removed from suicide watch and his cellmate being moved, the guards who were assigned to watch him were also spread thin — with one of them being on his fifth straight day of overtime.

The NYC Medical Examiner has performed an autopsy on Epstein, but has said that they need more information before a cause of death can be determined, though immediate reports said that he had committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell.

“Today, a medical examiner performed the autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein. The ME’s determination is pending further information at this time. At the request of those representing the decedent, and with the awareness of the federal prosecutor, I allowed a private pathologist (Dr. Michael Baden) to observe the autopsy examination. This is routine practice,” Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said in a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit on Sunday. “My office defers to the involved law enforcement agencies regarding other investigations around this death. Inquiries regarding the determination of the Chief Medical Examiner should be directed towards my office.”

Epstein’s case was putting many rich and powerful people in the spotlight over their connections to the pedophile. He had been denied bail and was facing 45 years in prison on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.

The pedophile’s private island was raided on Monday by the FBI. Drone footage obtained by NBC News showed that they had at least two computer desktops and an Apple computer packaged and marked to be seized.

FINALLY! Washington Post fact checks Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren on Michael Brown

Twitchy - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 18:16

It’s about time. . .

The Washington Post finally got around to fact-checking Senators Kamala Harris and Elizbeth Warren over their recent claims that Michael Brown was “murdered” by a Ferguson, MO police officer, giving both of them “Four Pinnochios” over it:

The @washingtonpost and @GlennKesslerWP call out @KamalaHarris, @EWarren for claims Michael Brown was ‘murdered’.https://t.co/ZS7PBkeOzb

— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) August 13, 2019

From the Post:

One can certainly raise questions about whether Wilson should have fired as many shots as he did or acted appropriately under the circumstances. The racial profiling by the Ferguson Police Department is certainly well documented and fair game for criticism.

But Harris and Warren have ignored the findings of the Justice Department to accuse Wilson of murder, even though the Justice Department found no credible evidence to support that claim.

Instead, the Justice Department found that the popular narrative was wrong, according to witnesses deemed to be credible, some of whom testified reluctantly because of fear of reprisal. The department produced a comprehensive report to determine what happened, making the senators’ dismissal of it even more galling. Harris and Warren both earn

Four Pinocchios.

Now, when will other outlets follow suit?

By the way, this follows several days of silence by most of the major papers & networks:https://t.co/LNXMEu8euN pic.twitter.com/UlyzxrF39g

FBI Scrambles to Cover Window with Cardboard Boxes as Rogue Drone Captures Raid of Epstein’s ‘Pedophile Island’ (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 18:01

A dozen FBI agents raided Epstein’s ‘pedophile island’ on Monday, just two days after he reportedly hanged himself with a prison bedsheet.

The FBI agents scrambled to cover windows with cardboard boxes as a rogue drone captured the raid.

The drone footage captured the diving team patrolling the water and FBI agents inside one of the rooms of Epstein’s compound on Little St. James Island.

The operator of the drone is unknown at this time, however, the individual has been gathering footage of Epstein’s island for several weeks.

The drone allegedly spotted a missing computer and other equipment before the FBI raided the property.

Previous drone footage also showed maintenance crews working on Epstein’s compound before the FBI raided the place.

Why did the FBI wait for over a month following Epstein’s arrest to raid his compound on ‘pedophile island’?

Green Card Rules from Trump Admin Indicate a Tough, Smart Immigration Policy, Yet Challenges Are Likely

LifeZette - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 18:00

The Trump administration on Monday issued new rules that will make it much easier to deny green cards to those who could end up on taxpayer-funded welfare programs.

The inevitable court challenges from Democrats are likely to follow.

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said of the new measure, “The principle driving it is an old American value — and that’s self-sufficiency.”

Good, in my view.

Generally separate from the question of border security and illegal immigration, this new rule speaks to the kind of people we might get to come here and possibly stay here, even on a relatively temporary basis. The U.S. should look to the most industrious and brightest of other nations — and encourage them to immigrate and make this land their home.

Legal immigration to our shores by those who can better our country is an excellent goal. As we know, the U.S. was immeasurably improved by those who immigrated here during the Ellis Island period.

Before and after that, many came legally and made significant contributions to our society.

Nevertheless, there are people who do not want the best and the most productive individuals to come to America. They want others who can be more easily controlled, others who will vote their way in exchange for income redistribution. The hard Left and their Democratic handmaidens will start the usual furor and let loose their hounds in court on the new Trump rules.

Related: Shep Smith Was So Upset That Hundreds of Undocumented Workers Were Arrested

Are they concerned at all for the U.S. taxpayer, who is picking up the bill for their indirect largesse?

Nah. Have they ever been?

The more sane and less politically avaricious know Americans cannot be asked to pick up the bill for those who now arrive here and may not be able to support themselves. That period, if it ever existed, is over.

There are, of course, extenuating circumstances in some applications for resident status — and those should be looked at on a case-by-case basis.

Yes, we are a great and generous people. But our generosity is not unlimited, nor should it be.

A great exception should be made for those foreign nationals who have supported us in wartime, such as interpreters from Iraq or Afghanistan. We owe those people, men who risked their lives and fought with us — and we cannot leave them to the tender mercies of the Islamist fanatics who may take over now or later.

These allies and their families have earned our support.

Related: Trump’s Dramatic Plan to Overhaul Our Immigration System

However, Americans have enough on their budget plate in dealing with the economic responsibilities of daily life without taking on unfair, or unearned, burdens.

Yes, we are a great and generous people.

But our generosity is not unlimited, nor should it be.

If you're in this country on a green card and sucking entitlement benefits…that's BS. Thank goodness @realDonaldTrump is doing something about it! #AmericaFirst

For too long we have tossed national treasure in a bottomless bin by ignoring common-sense immigration standards. We have also pitched loads of foreign aid cash into corrupt, badly governed dirigiste money pits (pretty much like Baltimore) and in other international aid to nations who publicly damn us at the drop of a fez.

The president is changing all that for the better, as he is much else. Bully for him.

‘Murder or Suicide?’ Judicial Watch Investigating Epstein’s Mysterious Death – ‘Sources Are Talking’

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 17:25


Graphic via Judicial Watch

Murder or suicide?

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is officially investigating Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious death and Tom Fitton said sources are talking.

Here are the pertinent questions Judicial Watch is asking:

Is the unit where Epstein died a crime scene? Preservation of evidence is critical. Fingerprints, hair samples, body fluids, location of body, method of death. Many investigations have been ruined at the outset from a failure to preserve the scene. Sound an alarm bell if the Epstein death location was not processed as a crime scene.

Are records preserved? A source at the Bureau of Prisons tells us there would be a “huge paper trail” on Epstein—documents, logs, interviews with prison psychologists and others related to an alleged July 23 suicide attempt, recordings of phone calls, text messages. Some of us with long memories remember the suicide of Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster. The Foster case dragged on for years and gave birth to numerous conspiracy theories in part because the crime scene was mishandled and documents disappeared from his White House office.

Can the money be followed? Epstein’s finances were carefully concealed, but he was known for spreading money around to ease his problems. Prosecutors alleged he tried to buy off witnesses. And serving time at a Palm Beach county jail in 2008 and 2009 on a Florida prostitution charge—negotiated to keep him out of federal prison—Epstein managed to steer $128,000 to officials running the jail. Investigators should search for similar arrangements in New York.

Are Bureau of Prison insiders corrupt? Most Bureau of Prisons employees are honest, but the organization has been repeatedly buffeted by corruption cases. Investigators will take a close look at everyone connected to Epstein at the facility.

Are the Epstein lawyers complicit? How far can a lawyer go for a client? Did any of Epstein’s lawyers facilitate illegal acts? Getting information from Epstein’s lawyers is central to the case. Epstein met repeatedly with his legal team while in jail. The New York Times reports that two lawyers closely involved in Epstein’s finances have hired lawyers of their own—criminal defense specialists. The Times elsewhere reports that Epstein’s lawyers brought in their own pathologist—famed forensic examiner Michael Baden—to observe the Epstein autopsy. According to the Wall Street Journal, Epstein was taken off suicide watch, after the July 23 incident, “at the request of his attorneys.” Expect a big legal battle if investigators move on Epstein’s lawyers.

Is the Department of Justice incompetent? The Epstein case is a major challenge for Attorney General William Barr. He says both the FBI and the Justice Department inspector general will open investigations into the Epstein death, but that may not be enough. Years of controversy and mismanagement related to the Clinton emails, the Clinton foundation and other matters morphed into turmoil over the 2016 election, FBI leadership, the Russia case and President Trump. The Justice Department is now an institution in crisis.

“We’ve been hearing from sources connected to the incident and we’ve brought a series of Freedom of Information actions to make sure key documents don’t get buried. But that’s no substitute for a properly functioning Justice Department,” Judicial Watch said.

Here’s what we know so far about Epstein’s mysterious death:

Jeffrey Epstein was reportedly found hanging in his jail cell from his bunk bed with a prison bedsheet wrapped around his head, according to a law enforcement source who spoke to the New York Post.

Epstein, who is 6 feet tall, reportedly secured the bedsheet to the top bunk bed and wrapped the sheet around his neck.

Epstein was put on suicide watch after he reportedly tried to kill himself shortly after he was arrested on July 6th on charges of sex trafficking of minors.

We now know that Epstein was taken off of suicide watch on July 29 at the request of his attorneys.

Although Epstein was taken off of suicide watch, prison guards, who were working overtime, broke protocols and failed to check on him every 30 minutes.

Epstein was also supposed to have a cellmate, however his cellmate was removed the night before he died.

Jeffrey Epstein was the most high profile prisoner in the US system with connections to the world’s elite, yet there were no cameras pointing directly into his prison cell.

According to a report released Tuesday morning, people heard ‘shrieking and shouting’ from Epstein’s cell the morning he died.

The New York City medical examiner still has not released Epstein’s autopsy report.

News of Epstein’s Death First Broke on 4Chan, Post Had Info Consistent With What Has Now Been Released, FDNY Investigating

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 16:48

The New York City Fire Department is now investigating how a detailed account of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s death and the efforts to revive him were posted on 4Chan 38 minutes before it was reported any where else.

“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” the poster wrote before diving into the details in a series of six posts.

While the cause of his death has not yet been made public by the Medical Examiner, who claims that they “need more information” before making a determination, the details posted to 4Chan do line up with much of what we now know.

“The 4chan user made six posts about Epstein’s death. One of them claimed that attempts to resuscitate Epstein were made for 40 minutes before he was transported to hospital, at which point medical personnel tried to revive him for another 20 minutes. Those details are at least partially consistent with the information regarding Epstein’s death that have been publicly released by the Federal Bureau of Prisons,” BuzzFeed News reports.

“Pt transported to Lower Manhattan ER and worked for 20 minutes and called. Hospital administrator was alerted, preparing statements,” said the 4chan post.

This statement lines up with what the Department of Justice’s Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement following Epstein’s death.

“Staff requested emergency medical services (EMS) and life-saving efforts continued. Mr. Epstein was transported by EMS to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, and subsequently pronounced dead by hospital staff,” the statement said.

Dr. Keith Wesley, who has authored several EMS textbooks and articles, spoke to BuzzFeed News about what the posts meant.

“Telemetry implies the paramedics were in contact with a medical control hospital who then gave orders to give Sodium Bicarbonate, bicarb which is designed to reverse the acid buildup in the blood from prolonged cardiac arrest,” Wesley said in an email.

“If one of the medics posted this separately that’s a breach of protocol,” he added. “If there was identifying information on the patient, that is a violation of Federal HIPPA law.”

The information would have been known to hospital staff and other first responders.

The news of the FDNY investigation comes at the same time as new report claimed that “shouting and shrieking” was heard coming from Epstein’s cell the morning of his death.

The CBS News report, citing an unnamed source, claims that corrections officers were also heard saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe,” while trying to revive him.

The cellmate of Epstein was transferred out of their shared cell on the eve of the high profile prisoner’s death, leaving him alone and unmonitored.

Epstein, 66, was being held in the special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City and was supposed to be being checked on every 30 minutes per the jail’s procedure — but he wasn’t.

“But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him,” the Washington Post reports.

Epstein’s cellmate prior to his most recent one was a hulking ex-cop, Nicholas Tartaglione, who has been charged with murdering four men in a cocaine conspiracy. Epstein is said to have feared him and the former Briarcliffe Manor cop was questioned following the pedophiles previous suicide attempt in July — which the financier said was actually an attack on his life.

“Remember previous incident July 23: it was never cleared up whether Epstein had been attacked, as he said, or if he was covering up his own suicide attempt,” Washington Post reporter Carol Leonning noted.

The pedophile’s private island was raided on Monday by the FBI. Drone footage obtained by NBC News showed that they had at least two computer desktops and an Apple computer packaged and marked to be seized.

EPIC! Trump Mocks Chris Cuomo For His Crazy Outburst Toward MAGA Supporter – “I Thought Chris Was Fredo Also”

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 15:49

CNN’s Chris Cuomo exploded after a Trump supporter in New York called him “Fredo” to his face — Fredo, a nickname that is meant to be an insult to Cuomo, is from the movie The Godfather to describe him as the weaker, less intelligent brother in the Corleone crime family.

“We’re gonna have a f*ckin problem,” Cuomo said to the Trump supporter who asked to take a picture with him.

Cuomo lost his cool and threatened the Trump supporter and told him he was going to throw him “down the f*cking stairs.”

“I’ll f*ckin ruin your shit. I’ll f*ckin throw you down the stairs like a f*ckin punk!” Cuomo said.

The video of Cuomo going crazy on MAGA immediately went viral on social media Monday evening and by Tuesday morning Trump was already mocking “Fredo.”

This was hilarious.

“I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings CNN,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!” Trump said.

“Don’t Tweet While High AF” – Liberal AZ Reporter Slammed for Comparing GOP Tweet to Nazi Slogans

GatewayPundit - Tue, 08/13/2019 - 15:34

On Saturday the Arizona Republican Party tweeted out this benign tweet promoting unity.

One people. One land. One Arizona. pic.twitter.com/JHm8igEykh

— AZ Republican Party (@AZGOP) August 10, 2019

This prompted liberal Arizona 12 News reporter Brahm Resnik to go full Nazi.

Brahm Resnik is the “political reporter” for News 12 Arizona.

Rep. Paul Gozar let him have it… “Don’t tweet while high AF. The graphic is a measure of unity.”

Of course, politicians and community leaders forever have called for unity. This was nothing new from the Republican Party.
Even Barack Obama used similar language at times.

I see @brahmresnik quietly deleted his tweet from this weekend calling a simple, benign unity message from the @AZGOP “Nazi propaganda.”

I’m sure we can expect an apology soon, right @12News? pic.twitter.com/Q8ozmRj64L

Brahm finally apologized on Tuesday morning.

APOLOGY I apologize for the tone & content of a tweet I posted over the weekend that has angered many Arizonans.
