Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Defies President Trump — Sends Armed Police Squad to Shut Down Black Baptist Church in Southside Chicago

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 14:58

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lashed out at President Trump on Friday as “foolish” after he deemed all churches and synagogues and places of worship as “essential.”

Lightfoot says President Trump has no power to override her local lockdown on churches and businesses.

Chicago police fined three churches last weekend for holding worship services.

South Side Churches cheered President Trump’s announcement on Friday.

On Sunday the Chicago mayor defied President Trump and sent an armed police squad to a Black Baptist Church on the Southside of Chicago.

Todd Starnes reported:

Courtney Lewis, the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Chicago, was in the middle of his sermon when he heard loud banging on front doors. It was the police and they were denied entry into the sanctuary according to Todd Starnes.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot had dispatched three squad cards and two unmarked cars filled with armed officers. A representative from the mayor’s office was also present.

(On a side note – I warned Americans in my new book that the left would try and shut down American churches. Click here to read “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”)

Pastor Lewis said the intent was to shut down their Sunday services. It was “like the Soviet-style KGB,” he said.

“The only thing she hasn’t done yet is beat the doors down and arrest our members,” the pastor said.

There is much more on the church assault here.

Twitter Removes Account on Oregon Voter Ballot Scandal — Takes the Word of Oregon State Officials and Ignores Testimony of 2,000 Mostly GOP Voters!

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 13:19

As the ballot scandal in Oregon continues to garner more and more attention, local and national media outlets are taking notice. And they’re rushing to the aid of the state officials while dismissing and belittling the thousands of disenfranchised voters who were denied their right to vote in the primary for they party.

Our original article was flagged by Facebook and Twitter as “misinformation” even though we sourced dozens of people making these initial claims.   Oregon officials worked with Facebook and Twitter to scrub the story, and now Politifact has chimed in as well, also taking everything the state officials word as undisputed truth — without interviewing a single victim of this ballot scam.

Relying largely on the “debunked” DMV Motor Voter scapegoat, writer Tom Kertscher reports:

A headline on an article on The Gateway Pundit, a conservative website says:

“Huge Scandal: Oregon Changes Hundreds Of Republican Ballots To “Non Partisan” Denying GOP Voters the Right To Participate In Primary.”

There’s no evidence yet to back up the headline.

No evidence? Except we’ve included in our articles dozens of screen captures of people making these claims. Apparently Kertscher didn’t bother to actually read the articles he is “fact checking.”

He goes on to explain how the ballots are supposed to work in Oregon:

The situation in Oregon highlights one challenge of mail balloting, even as the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends it to Americans as a way to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

In Oregon, primary elections are closed, which means only registered Democrats and registered Republicans can vote in their respective primaries.

So, Oregon voters registered as Republicans receive ballots with Republican primary races on them and voters registered as Democrats get ballots with Democratic races. Nonpartisan contests appear on both ballots.

In the May 19 primary, there were partisan races for president as well as Congress and other offices; and there were nonpartisan races for offices such as state judge and county sheriff.

Anger and confusion surfaced when some voters received ballots with only nonpartisan races.

Voters say they got wrong ballots

People who posted on the My Party Was Changed Oregon Facebook page said they had been registered with one of the major parties for years, but received nonpartisan ballots; most said they were Republicans.

Some users claimed a conspiracy against Republican voters. Others pointed out that under the state’s Motor Voter Act, which took effect in 2016, Oregonians are automatically registered to vote when they apply for, or renew, their drivers licenses.

By default, those voters are registered as having no party affiliation. They have to take another step to register a party affiliation with the state. In the case of the May 19 primary, a voter had to register their party affiliation by April 28 to receive the partisan ballot.

That meant some voters who were registered as nonaffiliated didn’t get to change their affiliation in time.

There had been indications that many voters could find themselves in that situation.

Oregon Public Broadcasting reported in December that according to the Secretary of State’s office, the number of non affiliated voters had increased by nearly 60,000 since the beginning of 2019. The news story said that was largely due to the motor voter law and the fact that most voters don’t select their party affiliation even though they should receive a postcard from the state instructing them on how to do so on the state elections website or by mail.

Some voters might have forgotten

It’s not clear whether longtime voters who complained about receiving a nonpartisan ballot simply did not realize they were not registered as a Democrat or Republican, or if mistakes were made by state officials, perhaps at the DMV, that resulted in voters being defaulted to nonaffiliated status.

Andrea Chiapella, a spokeswoman for Oregon Secretary of State Bev Clarno, a Republican, said the office received a few requests to look into what might have happened, but that “we haven’t found any improper changes” to a voter’s party affiliation without the voter’s permission.

“We get a handful of these complaints every two years during a primary” involving both parties, she said, “and none have ever shown evidence that the political party was fraudulently changed.”

Confusion, anger amid Tuesday's balloting in mail-voting-only Oregon. https://t.co/oqemfxZ6G8 pic.twitter.com/8ufbEYeKLx

— Tom Kertscher (@KertscherNews) May 22, 2020

A “handful” of complaints each year is likely the case, as I imagine there are a “handful” of voters who click the wrong party, or don’t re register in time with the party they want to join.

But this is now over 2200 people in the My Party Was Changed group on facebook, quite a difference compared to what they themselves claim is normal.

In local news, the Oregonian writer Betsy Hammond “reported” with the headline “No, elections officials didn’t change Oregon voters’ party ID without permission, they say”:

Oregon election officials say they got their usual rash of complaints this year from voters who were certain they had registered as Democrat or Republican and were upset when they received a non-partisan ballot for the May primary without contests for president, Congress, secretary of state or the Legislature.

Many voters called election offices, complained to friends and took to social media to insist something nefarious had occurred.

The Republican Party of Oregon, which normally hears such complaints in “onesies or twosies” per election cycle, has been hit with an absolute avalanche of complaints this month, said spokesperson Kevin Hoar. Readers claiming to be lifelong Democrats as well as a few who say they registered as Republicans have insisted to The Oregonian/OregonLive in recent weeks that someone switched them to unaffiliated status without their knowledge.

But election officials say they never change a voter’s party identity unless the voter makes such a request. To change party identification, a person must know the voter’s name, birthdate and Oregon driver license or state ID number and indicate the new party identity online.

“We get a lot of (such complaints) every primary election where party matters,” said Eric Sample, spokesperson for the Multnomah County elections office. “But no one is going in and changing voter registration” except when a voter requests it online.

Andrea Chiapella, spokesperson for the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office, which oversees voter registration, said, “We don’t change party unless requested by the voter. So even if they were inactive for a time, it would not revert to (non-partisan) for any reason other than the voter requesting that change.”

Right there Chiapella invalidates all of the claims about the DMV’s automatic Motor Voter system registering people as non-affiliated, because these voters are saying they didn’t request any change.

Hammond’s article continues:

When voters think their party identification has been changed, typically from Democrat or Republican to unaffiliated with any party, what actually happened is almost invariably one of two scenarios, according to Chiapella, Sample and party registration records obtained in previous years by The Oregonian/OregonLive under a public records request:

>> The voter was registered to vote at the DMV under Oregon’s “motor voter law.” All Oregon citizens who obtain or update a driver’s license or state ID and are not already in the state’s voter registration database are registered to vote as non-partisan electors. They are then sent a follow-up post card that allows them to decline to be registered or to register as a member of a party, either online or by returning the postcard. The vast majority of voters registered in that way take no action and remain unaffiliated with a party.

>> The voter updated their registration, inputting a new address or similar information, and also changed their party affiliation in that online request. Those requests may have come in through a third-party portal, such as the U.S. Post Office-endorsed site mymove.com rather than directly from a state or county elections web site. Oregon elections officials advise Oregonians to always use the state election website or their county elections website.

In the cases of voters who complained that they suffered an unfair switcheroo and were willing to provide their names, The Oregonian/OregonLive found that nearly all had never before voted in a primary election. In a general election, all voters see the nominees from both major parties on their ballots.

In other words, if you were a huge fan of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in November 2016 or rooted for Knute Buehler or Kate Brown for governor in November 2018, and saw that candidate’s name on your ballot, that’s wasn’t an indicator you were registered as a Democrat or a Republican.

Still, many more voters than usual seem to have been caught unaware and have complained vociferously. Not being able to vote for the candidate of one’s choice for president, secretary of state, Congress or the Legislature feels wrong in a Democracy.

Sample said that was why his office sent out the unprecedented notification this year: “We wanted to make everyone aware, with the primary, ‘Hey make sure you are registered with the party you want to be.’”

In other words, the state is using the old, “We investigated ourselves, and we found nothing wrong,” routine, while basically saying the voters are too stupid to understand how their own voter registration works, despite having no problems in past years.

If there are that many moving parts, and that many access points where one’s registration can be changed, and that many people who would have access to input information affecting one’s registration, then that would be more areas where the registration system could be vulnerable to tampering.

Curiously missing from both Betsy Hammond’s and Tom Kertscher’s reports are interviews with people who claim to be affected by the ballot scandal.

Over at Pamplin media, which runs the Portland Tribune and several suburban newspapers, they try to minimize the damage because it appears to have happened to only 1,000 or so voters:

The Oregon Secretary of State’s office says all such allegations of deliberate tampering are incorrect.
“Statements online that say that party has been changed against their wishes is misinformation and our Elections Director is trying to work with Facebook and Twitter to have it deemed as such and removed,” Secretary of State spokeswoman Andrea Chiapella told Lead Stories.
“There hasn’t been any consistent reason as to why they thought they were registered with a party and were not, some of it has been simple misreading of their ballot,” she added.
While a Facebook group organized around the issue has more than 1,000 members, the number of alleged changed ballots is claimed to be in the hundreds.
The majority of the Oregon Republican party appears to be unaffected by the issue. More than 335,000 Oregonians cast a vote by mail in the Republican Party primary for the Secretary of State’s office, for instance. Only about 40% of voters participated in this year’s primary.”
Could you imagine the liberal outrage if  1,000 people in inner city democrat strongholds were turned away from the polls because, they couldn’t show ID! 
There would be protests, buildings would be burned down, cop cars would be flipped over, windows of businesses would smashed out…

Meanwhile, Twitter promptly removed the @MyPartyWasChanged account after only a few days of existing.

This was shortly after Juanita Broaddrick posted our second story on this scandal:

THIS IS HUGE: Oregon Government Orders Facebook to Remove Gateway Pundit Article on Republican Ballot Scandal – Facebook Complies — Despite Hundreds of Confirmed Testimonies https://t.co/36fwhoTzFl

— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) May 22, 2020

MEANWHILE, in addition to flagging our original story as “misinformation” with a link Alexis Tereszcuk’s state apologist article, they are now including a “Partly False” rating from Politifact whenever anyone tries to post a link to our first story on this continuing scandal.

 

In fairness, the broadcast based news outlets seem to be taking input from both sides in the ballot scandal, reaching out to people who claim they got the wrong ballot, as Portland’s KATU news presented a fairly balanced story:

Greg Rosen, who lives in Sandy, said he first noticed an issue in 2018. While he didn’t have any documentation, he said he re-registered with the Republican Party ahead of the 2018 primary. This year, he said he received a nonpartisan ballot and could not vote in the Republican primary.

“I just want it fixed. I want to be in the elections. I feel like my vote was robbed from me and I just want it solved,” said Rosen.

Rosen said he doesn’t know why this would have happened. He said he tried to change his party registration again this week, after he discovered he wasn’t registered with a party.

Voter registrations won’t be updated again until after the May election is certified in June.

The issue appears to be happening around the state. A Facebook paged called “My Party Was Changed Oregon” has nearly 2,000 members with many people claiming their party affiliation was incorrect.

Andrea Chiapelli, communications director for the secretary of state, said they also see reports like this during the primaries.

“Our office is diligently working through each request we get to look into the claims that party affiliations have been changed without consent. We have not found any cases of fraud or malfeasance,” said Chiapelli. “We hold our elections to the highest standard and are ensuring that they are safe and secure. If there are any cases of fraud, we want to identify those.”

Some have questioned if the change in party affiliation was related to Oregon’s motor voter law, which took effect in 2016 and automatically registers people who were not registered to vote. Chiapelli said their office will send voters a letter asking which party they want to join. If that person doesn’t reply, they will be nonaffiliated. Chiapelli said the DMV will not change someone’s party.

So what’s happening?

There doesn’t seem to be a single answer. Chiapelli said each person has a unique case. Some of it may be a misunderstanding about what a voter should be receiving, said Chiapelli. For example, nonaffiliated voters and members of minor parties will have received nonpartisan ballots.

Bend, Oregon based KTVZ reports:

Deschutes County clerk Nancy Blankenship told NewsChannel 21 when asked about one such complaint, “We only take instructions from what the voter tells us. Mistakes do occur, but we take precautions to limit those as much as possible.”

Blankenship said Tuesday the county clerk’s office accidentally put the wrong ballot in the wrong envelope for two people.

“We want to own up to that,” Blankenship said. “It wasn’t that they had a wrong party, it was just we made a mistake. But all the other calls we’ve been fielding is people forgetting what party they registered with.”

Blankenship said she received several calls from people who said the last time they registered a party was in the late ’90s or early 2000s.

“If we made a mistake, we want to correct that,” Blankenship said. “If you’re under the impression we sent you the wrong party ballot, we want to verify either ‘Yes, we did,’ or ‘No, we didn’t.'”

She said the county clerk’s office can also send screenshots of people’s past voter records.

Jody Logsdon of Redmond said she was registered as non-affiliated for years, until changing her registration to Republican in 2008. She said when she checked online, she noticed her party had been changed back to non-affiliated. She said she changed it back to Republican online, but still received a non-affiliate ballot in the mail.

It’s not just residents of Deschutes County claiming they received the wrong ballots in the mail.

Jessica Maxfield-Walters, who lives in the La Pine area and is registered to vote in Klamath County, told NewsChannel 21 she had a similar experience.

“I checked online afterwards, and it said I was unaffiliated, which was weird,” Maxfield-Walters said. “I thought when you change your party, you get a card in the mail, and I never got a card in the mail.”

Maxfield-Walters said she is not going to vote in this election because she does not feel it is right to vote under a party she did not willingly register with.

So at least one official seems genuinely concerned and is trying to rectify the situation.

The story is still developing and we anticipate having many more updates throughout the week.

EXCLUSIVE: Judge Emmett Sullivan, from General Flynn Trial, Arranged Speaking Gig for James Comey at Howard University for $100,000

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 12:45

The confused judge who has unconstitutionally inserted himself into the Justice Department’s case against General Flynn made some actions behind the scene that are just as troubling. 

Judge Sullivan helped Jim Comey get his speaking gig at Howard University for $100,000. 

How much more corruption can America take.  The corrupt judge who inserted himself into the General Flynn case, who insinuated the General was a traitor, has a lifestyle that matches his actions in court. 

He’s not only famous for his unethical standards and actions in the Flynn trial, he also ordered that deported asylum seekers must be returned to the US. 

Judge Sullivan has two sons.  Emmett Sullivan Jr., runs a T-shirt company and is married to wife Gayle.  They have two children. Junior likes to portray himself as some sort of gangster.

The younger Emmet Sullivan, Jr., made T-shirts for a project labeled “Disruption” for the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.  This is the same firm Edward Snowden worked for.

Gayle, Jr’s wife, worked for the firm and claims to be an Executive Assistant.  It’s unknown what the contract was for or how much money was made in this venture.

Sullivan Jr. is a Trump hater, as is exemplified by the T-shirts he makes and wears.

 

Judge Sullivan is a graduate of Howard University.  He is friends with Howard University President Wayne Frederick who was involved with a misappropriation scam at the University in 2016, per CBS News:

Howard University President Wayne Frederick said Wednesday that six people had been fired in Sept. 2017 for allegedly misappopriating funds, but questions still remain one day after an anonymous whistleblower said the financial aid office stole $1 million. A whistleblower named people accused of getting tuition benefits to cover the cost of taking classes while receiving grant money in a Medium post late Tuesday, which has since been removed.

CBS also reported that at that time, the University had millions in unpaid tuition:

The Medium post caused an uproar at Howard, which has been dealing with financial troubles in recent years. With an estimated $22 million in uncollected tution in 2017, the university announced to register for classes, all students would have to have a zero balance, or pay one-third of their outstanding bill and be enrolled in a payment plan, according to The Washington Post. The move was especially controversial for the historically black university, and hit low-income students hard.

But at the same time as the challenges with tuition for many of Howard’s students, Judge Sullivan worked with President Frederick to get Jim Comey as a guest speaker for a $100,000 fee.  The former FBI Director’s presentation was interrupted numerous times:

Former FBI director James Comey’s speech to students the historically black Howard University in Washington, D.C., was interrupted numerous times by protesters on Friday.

“We shall not be moved!” the protesters yelled, fists raised in the air. They also chanted, “No justice, no peace,” and told Comey to “get out” of their “home.”

“I’m only going to speak for 12 minutes,” Comey said in response to the demonstrators.

Not a bad deal, $100,000 for 12 minutes of work. 

Judge Sullivan is also friends with former Washington D.C. mayor Sharon Pratt.  But the most sickening piece of evidence of the Sullivan family being biased towards General Flynn is Judge Sullivan’s daughter in law, Gayle, sharing a post of Hillary Clinton noting General Flynn is under FBI Investigation and to “LOCK HIM UP”.

Judge Sullivan shouldn’t come close to a General Flynn courtroom.  He is biased and his family is biased against President Trump and General Flynn.  As we see today, General Flynn will never get a fair trial in a Judge Sullivan court.

Radical House Democrats Continue Their Harassment of Roger Stone, President Trump and Trump’s Supporters

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 12:30

In late February 2020, the Democrat led House Judiciary Committee asked for the DOJ to retain all records related to the Roger Stone indictment. 

The Democrats and the Deep State will not let up on their unconstitutional and illegal efforts to harass and oust, President Donald J. Trump from office.  And Trump’s supporters, like Roger Stone, are also targets of the Democrats and the Deep State.

Stone responded to the House Judiciary request with the following:

This is not the first time documents have been requested or released related to the Roger Stone case. 

In April, a US Attorney released warrants related to Roger Stone.  Stone responded with the following:

Although there are private communications contained in the warrants, they prove no crimes,” Stone said in a lengthy statement on his website. “I have no trepidation about their release as they confirm there was no illegal activity and certainly no Russian collusion by me during the 2016 Election. There is, to this day, no evidence that I had or knew about the source or content of the Wikileaks disclosures prior to their public release.”

Stone added that “the search warrants and the affidavits used to support them released today clearly demonstrate the overreach of the Mueller investigation.”

Stone has become a cultural icon – with his tatoo of Richard Nixon on his back and now the fact that he was targeted by the Deep State Mueller gang.

One rapper ‘Mint Chip’ put together a song about Stone.

NEW RELEASE!

Mint Chip – Roger Stone [Radio Edit]

Hundreds of Boats in Florida Form a Massive Armada for President Trump This Holiday Weekend

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 12:00

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

The Naples Daily News reported:

From canoes to yachts, over 500 boats decorated with U.S. and Trump 2020 flags navigated Collier County waters Saturday in support of President Donald Trump’s reelection.

Boaters departed after 10 a.m. from the City Dock in Naples to a recording of the song “God Bless the USA” and the national anthem. They then navigated Naples Bay and farther south to the Jolley Bridge on Marco Island.

About 530 boats participated in the parade, said Jamie Mosbach, a spokeswoman for the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

“We didn’t have any incidents,” she said.

From a boat filled with her family members, Marco Island resident Doreen Oliverio said that she wants to see Trump win the 2020 general election.

“He is the greatest and can turn our country around,” she said.

GOOD NEWS! Covington Attorney Todd McMurtry Is Running for Congress in Kentucky Against GOP Lawmaker Trump Calls “Third Rate Grandstander”

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 04:33

This is really good news!
Attorney Todd McMurtry, who represented the Covington Catholic boys in their lawsuits against the perpetrators in the mainstream media, is running for US Congress in Kentucky’s 4th Congressional district.

WLWT5 reported:

Todd McMurtry represented Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann after the student sued CNN for defamation for a video taken at a national Right to Life march. The video shows Sandmann with a group of other students who had been approached by a Native American protester…

…McMurtry filed to challenge Thomas Massie in the May GOP primary in the 4th District, a conservative bastion that spans the state’s northern tier. McMurtry filed a few hours before the deadline for candidates to get their names on this year’s ballot.

McMurtry described himself as a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump and said he’d be a better ally than the veteran congressman.

20-Yr-Old Jaden Hayden Charged with Pummeling 75-Yr-Old Veteran in Michigan Nursing Home and Stealing His Credit Cards Where He was Sent with Coronavirus

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 03:51

A very disturbing video circulated on social media on Thursday showing a young black Michigan man beating an elderly white man at a nursing home.

Jaden Hayden, reportedly from Westland, Michigan filmed himself beating elderly white nursing home patients for sport.

The man filmed himself beating the the elderly man, later identified as a 75-year-old veteran, in his bed until he was bleeding.

Absolutely shocking footage has emerged from a black male nurse from Detroit (Jadon H.), who filmed himself beating elderly white men into a bloody pulp.

“Get the fuck off my bed, N.,” he is heard saying.

Viewer discretion advised. pic.twitter.com/NPtCFA8YIs

— Mathijs Koenraadt (@mknrdt) May 21, 2020

Judicial Watch boss Tom Fitton said the watchdog group contacted authorities after he was alerted to the disturbing videos.

“This was also posted on my Twitter feed and Judicial Watch contacted authorities who then, in response to our concern, arrested this person. Thanks to those who helped us get this done.” Tom Fitton said.

On Friday FOX 2 Detroit in Michigan spoke with the father of the Jaden Hayden after his arrest.

The father said his son is not vicious, but that he just has mental health issues.

And the father then said this,

“He said his son called 911 and was taken to a mental health facility in Ann Arbor. Last Wednesday, he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and said he was supposed to be taken to another facility to be quarantined.

The father added, “It should’ve never happened because he should’ve never been put in that environment.”

Did you catch that?
Authorities — following the orders of Governor Gretchen Whitmer — moved the young man to a nursing home to recover from COVID-19.

They moved 20-year-old Jaden Hayden to the nursing home just last week.

According to his father, Jaden Hayden was moved to the nursing home because he had COVID-19.

This tells us that Governor Whitmer is STILL sending COVID-19 patients to NURSING HOMES.

Michigan has 5,158 recorded coronavirus deaths.
And Democrat Governor Whitmer is STILL sending coronavirus patients to nursing homes!

So not only was Jaden BEATING nursing home patients but he was spreading the coronavirus in the same nursing home!

The Attorney for the Westwood Nursing Center told reporters the nursing home was not aware of the beating until they saw the video?
This was despite blood on the sheets and despite a patient with obvious facial damage!

And there’s more…

According to WXYZ.com the 75-year-old victim is a US veteran.

And according to WXYZ Jaden was moved the hospital last Wednesday. The assault on the elderly man took place LAST FRIDAY!
And police did not arrest Jaden until yesterday — a week later — at that same nursing home!

Jaden Hayden beat the hell out of the seniors and was still in the facility a week later!

And now there is video of Jaydon, with COVID-19, in another patient’s room beating the hell out of her too.

Jaydon also posted this video online.

Warning– Very Graphic.

Here is the link to the video.

Now this…
On Sunday Jaden Hayden was charged in connection to the brutal beating of 75-year-old veteran Norman Bledsoe.

FOX News reported:

Nursing home staff rushed to the room and saw Bledsoe bleeding from both sides of his head. However, he led staff to believe he fell from his bed. He was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

Hayden was arrested on May 21 by Detroit Police after an alleged video captured on social media caught the attention of Ann Arbor Police. It’s also alleged that Hayden stole Bledsoe’s credit cards.

James Clapper Even Lied in his Memoir About General Flynn Being Compromised by Russians — But Told a Different Story Under Oath

Mon, 05/25/2020 - 03:33

James Clapper is a serial liar.

In April 2019 former DNI Clapper said Bill Barr’s accusations that the Obama administration was spying on Trump was “stunning and scary.”

Then the following month, in May, he admitted it was true.

I missed this from last Friday —

James Clapper also claimed in his memoir that General Michael Flynn “had been compromised by Russia.”

BREAKING: James Clapper, who in 2013 fired Flynn as DIA head on orders from Obama, claimed in his memoir that "he'd been compromised by the Russians" in 2016, despite new court docs revealing neither the Comey FBI nor Special Counsel Mueller had any evidence he'd been compromised

He was lying about it all along.

Trump Trolls Barack Obama with Video Compilation of Biden’s Corruption and Gaffes (VIDEO)

President Trump was in a mood Sunday night.

Trump trolled Barack Obama by posting a video compilation of the former president’s endorsement of Joe Biden and highlights of the former VP’s corruption and gaffes.

The video highlights Hunter Biden’s deal with the corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma and Joe Biden’s threat to withhold $1 billion from Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor general investigating his son — as Obama denounced ‘corruption in politics.’

Enter Biden’s gaffes…

The video then shows Biden being rude to reporters and talking about a gangster he previously took on named “Corn Pop.”

The only reason why Obama and Biden have gotten away with their 8-year crime spree is because we don’t have a real media.

The Experts Lied: Children in England Under 15 Are 4 Times More Likely to be Struck by Lightning than Die of COVID-19

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 22:31

There has never been a greater scam in the history of the world.

The American “experts” and “elites” destroyed the greatest economy in history over a virus that leaves children and those healthy Americans of working age virtually untouched.

The experts closed the schools and churches and businesses.

And now know from a new report in the UK a child under 15-years-old has a greater chance being struck by lightning that dying from coronavirus.

Dr. Andrew Bostom reported:

TRUMP: Biden ‘Doesn’t Know He’s Alive’

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 21:31

President Trump said Sunday he’s not even sure Joe Biden “knows he’s alive.”

Biden, 77, on Friday told a black radio host, “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Weird.

The comment was so bad that even the mainstream media took note.

Trump appeared on a local DC show Sunday, where host and superb reporter Sharyl Attkisson asked what Biden’s strongest feature was as a political opponent.

“Well, I would have said experience, but he doesn’t really have experience because I don’t think he remembers what he did yesterday,” Trump said. “So how is that experience? He’s been there a long time. He was never known as a smart person.”

Attkisson sought the good, asking Trump to “pick one good thing.” Trump said, “Ah,” then didn’t give an answer.

When asked about Biden’s weakest point, Trump said there were just too many examples from which to choose.

“I can’t tell you,” Trump said. “I mean, I’m really serious. He’s got many. I can talk about weak points all day long.”

Biden, Trump said, is “not mentally sharp enough to be president.”

“Biden doesn’t know, I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive,” Trump said. “I’m against somebody. Think of it. I’m against somebody that can’t answer simple questions. I’ve never seen anything like it, but here’s what I am against. I’m against a very powerful party, the Democrats, and they can take this glass of water and say that’s your candidate.”

President Trump Says Democrats Exploiting Coronavirus to Rig Election with Vote-By-Mail “Scam”

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 21:25

It is obvious the Democrats are using the Coronavirus as an excuse to push for mail-in ballots rather than in-person voting in an effort to steal the 2020 election.

President Trump called out the scheming Democrats on Sunday.

Trump on Sunday fired off a tweet accusing the Democrats of using the Coronavirus as a vehicle to rig the election with mail-in voting. “Trying to use Covid for this scam!”

“The United States cannot have all Mail In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history. People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries and “force” people to sign. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary. Trying to use Covid for this Scam!” President Trump said in a tweet Sunday morning.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2020

The state of Michigan last week announced it is mailing absentee ballot applications to all 7.7 million registered voters.

President Trump threatened to withhold funding to Michigan if they “want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

Speaker Pelosi has also been trying to sneak in federal ballot harvesting laws into several of the Coronavirus stimulus bills.

The Democrats see an opportunity to steal the 2020 election with mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting after the left successfully used the fraudulent system to flip Orange County from red to blue in 2018.

New York State Makes it a Felony For Law Enforcement to Share DMV Info With DHS or ICE

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 20:47

As people have been distracted with the coronavirus shutdown, Governor Andrew Cuomo quietly passed the 2020 budget which contained an amendment that makes it a felony for law enforcement to share DMV information with the Department of Homeland Security or Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The Green Light Law has essentially criminalized police work.

According to Buffalo’s ABC 7,  the amendment makes it an E Felony for any law enforcement officer to share DMV records with another law enforcement agency in charge of immigration like ICE or DHS.

U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York J.P. Kennedy has accused Cuomo of “legislating obstruction” with the new law.

“Border Patrol for example, working the highway in the middle of the night and pulls over a vehicle, they can’t run the plates to determine who owns that vehicle,” said Kennedy. “I think it’s legislating obstruction and it’s very concerning to me.”

Kennedy is also concerned about the safety of New Yorkers and called the amendment a “recipe for disaster.”

“We’ve seen how important communication and coordination in coming up with a response to the pandemic and sort of causing people to work in isolation it’s a recipe for disaster,” he said of not being able to share information. “I’m very concerned about this and I think it’s very unfortunate and makes me really question the motives of the individuals that enacted this law, if their professed interest in public safety and public health is really as important as they say they are.”

Alarmingly, this law will also have a national impact, as illegal aliens with New York plates in other states cannot have their information run by ICE or DHS.

“If any law enforcement officer in Texas ran across a New York State registered vehicle they could not run that plate if it was any officer who was involved in the enforcement of immigration law.”

Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns told ABC 7 that this is “shocking” and “unheard of.”

“This is shocking this is unheard of and especially during a pandemic that someone, the Governor, who is under so much pressure thought about that to put that in there,” said Kearns. “We just had I think it was 29 people law enforcement people in the State of New York that just died from COVID, and they’re criminals now?”

“They basically criminalize police work in this budget,” he added.

NY Times Front Page Includes List of Coronavirus Victims – 2-of-5 are from NY and NJ… 2-of-5 Are from Nursing Homes and At Least One is a Murder Victim

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 20:15

The Sunday New York Times used the front page to list hundreds of names of victims of the coronavirus.

The US is nearing the grim milestone of 100,000 coronavirus deaths since the pandemic reached out shores in January.

Thank God for President Trump or this number would likely be at least 4 times that amount.

As usual, The New York Times is not quite forthcoming with its liberal audience.
At least 2 of 5 of the US coronavirus deaths were in New York and New Jersey thanks to the fact that their Democrat governors tossed sick patients in nursing homes.

And at last another 2 of 5 deaths were in nursing homes across the United States.

A recent study revealed that 39% of all US coronavirus deaths occurred in nursing homes.

That comes out to 31,900 Deaths in Nursing Homes!
That is a really shocking number!

49,895 deaths were outside of nursing homes.
Which is what you might expect from a typical flu season.

UPDATE– At least one of the people on the NY Times list is a murder victim.

Why Is This Woman Not in Prison? Dr. Birx Says She’s Less Confident than Trump that US Won’t Close Again in Second Wave Hits

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 19:17

America needs better “experts.”

The current crop of experts caused an economic catastrophe based on their crap predictions using clearly ridiculous models.

** Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx used the Imperial College Model in March to persuade President Trump to lock down the ENTIRE US ECONOMY.
** The fraudulent model predicted 2.2 million American deaths from the coronavirus pandemic
** The authors of the Imperial College Model shared their findings with the White House Coronavirus task force in early March
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx then met with President Trump privately and urged him to shut down the US economy and destroy the record Trump economy based on this model
** A new critique of the Imperial College Model finds the study is “completely unusable for scientific purposes” — The Imperial College study is a complete sham
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a garbage model on the White House and the American public and destroyed the US economy

Why is there NO accountability?

As reported weeks ago — in mid April Dr. Fauci admitted that it was he and Dr. Birx who persuaded President Trump to lock down the US economy knowing the massive destruction this would cause in jobs, lives and commerce.

After Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci sat with the president in the Oval Office and used their junk models to persuade the president to act the US went into lockdown and since that time over 39 MILLION Americans have lost their jobs and thousands of companies have gone bankrupt.

In late March, Neil Ferguson, who was behind the Imperial College coronavirus study, backtracked and said 20,000 Brits may die from the coronavirus instead of his original estimates of 500,000.

Neil Ferguson resigned from his government post as researcher a week ago after he was caught breaking his own lockdown rules by meeting with his married mistress at his home.

Sue Denim, a software engineer for 30 years, studied the Dr. Ferguson’s model and concluded it is complete garbage and cannot be scientifically replicated.

In her concluding remarks Denim says the Imperial College model “should be retracted immediately.”

 

Conclusions. All papers based on this code should be retracted immediately. Imperial’s modelling efforts should be reset with a new team that isn’t under Professor Ferguson, and which has a commitment to replicable results with published code from day one.

On a personal level, I’d go further and suggest that all academic epidemiology be defunded. This sort of work is best done by the insurance sector. Insurers employ modellers and data scientists, but also employ managers whose job is to decide whether a model is accurate enough for real world usage and professional software engineers to ensure model software is properly tested, understandable and so on. Academic efforts don’t have these people, and the results speak for themselves.

And now two leading international computer software engineers write that Ferguson’s model was, on its face, incompetent and would not have been accepted by anyone well-versed in computer technology.

Ferguson’s model was complete trash.

Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx ran with it anyway — without any facts or comparisons.
They never got a second opinion!

Now we are facing massive unemployment and poverty.

On Sunday Dr. Birx suggested it is likely another lockdown is in the works in the fall.

The woman has learned NOTHING from her colossal mistakes.

Now — Dr. Birx is telling the liberal media that there may be another lockdown coming.

Because destroying the US economy once with failed models was NOT ENOUGH!

The Washington Examiner reported:

Dr. Deborah Birx could not say whether the United States would have to shut down again over a potential second wave of the COVID-19 virus.

President Trump said last week that he would not close the country again if there is a second wave of the coronavirus. During a Sunday interview on ABC’s This Week, Birx, who is the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said it is “difficult to tell” whether Trump is correct in stating that the country will not need to shut down again.

“It’s difficult to tell, and I really am data-driven, so I’m collecting data right now about whether governors and whether states and whether communities are able to open safely,” she said.

Birx noted that proactive testing will be needed nationwide to properly identify new outbreaks in asymptomatic patients. She said that the task force has advised nursing homes to routinely test all residents and staff for the COVID-19 virus and added that places such as meat processing plants will need regular testing to prevent any “super spreading events.”

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Deep State FBI Asked George Papadopoulos’s Wife, Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, to Spy On Her Husband!

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 17:44

Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos was a young, intelligent and beautiful Italian woman when she met George Papadopoulos in 2016. 

Her life was soon turned upside down.  One item to date has gone unreported until today – the Deep State FBI asked young Ms. Mangiante to spy on her husband.

And now we know after contacting Simona — the FBI suggested the possibility of wearing a wire.  

Margot Cleveland at the Federalist in June, 2018, put together a nice summary of Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos and her life before and after meeting George Papadopoulos in 2016:

Papadopoulos and (vicariously) Mangiante first grabbed the public’s attention when news broke on October 30 that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had indicted him for lying to the FBI. Prior to joining Trump’s campaign, Papadopoulos had served a brief stint with Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson’s team, and before that he served as a research associate at the D.C.-based Hudson Institute think tank.

Papadopoulos “met” Mangiante, a native of Caserta, Italy — a city of 80,000 on the outskirts of Naples — through LinkedIn, in September 2016, when he noticed their mutual connection to the London Centre of International Law Practice. After sending Mangiante a note saying he liked her picture, the pair began chatting over the internet. They would not meet for six more months, when Mangiante flew to New York in March or April 2017. A love connection sent the couple on a three-month soiree, in which they traveled to Mykonos, Athens and Capri.

Papadopoulos flew home afterward, on July 7, but after he sent a quick text to Mangiante saying he had arrived safely, the FBI arrested him at Washington Dulles airport. Mangiante later flew to Chicago to be with Papadopoulos, and in September the couple became engaged. On Oct. 5, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. That same day FBI agents served Mangiante with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury. While the couple intended to marry in Italy in the summer, the case dragged on, so they wed instead on March 2, 2018, in a civil ceremony in Chicago, Illinois.

George worked for the London Centre of International Law Practice in early 2016, when Simona joined in September.  They both worked with Joseph Mifsud.  Simona called Mifsud “sneaky” and in her testimony before Congress that was recently and finally released by House Democrats, Simona reported that Mifsud worked for the Clinton Foundation.

The Deep State FBI claimed that Mifsud told young George that the Russians had Hillary Clinton’s emails and this is what kicked off the Trump-Russia collusion sham.  This improbable and insignificant story that Russia had dirt on the Clintons was no reason to begin spying on candidate and President Trump, as everyone now knows.

One piece of information that we did not know until today is that the Deep State FBI reportedly asked young Simona, now a model, to spy on her husband!

We obtained text messages between an anonymous source and Ms. Papadopoulos.  Our source told us that in the course of a text message conversation with young Simona, it was revealed that Simona was asked to spy on George Papadopoulos.

In the first text message, Simona is presented with an article related to Obamagate and she says:

Simona: L’FBI mi hachiesto di informarli su george .. guando ci frequentavamo. E’ scandaloso – [The FBI asked me to inform them about george .. when we were dating.  It’s outrageous.]
Simona: Non volevo parlare di questo – [I didn’t want to talk about this.]

In the next text message, Simona is asked about a microphone story:

Acquantance: Davvero ti hano chiesto questo? [Did they really ask you this?]
Simona: Ma mi hanno dato un numero segreto [But they gave me a secret number]

In a third text Simona texts that she and George believed she was asked to wear a wire:

Simona: george sostiene che chiedermi di collaborare equivale anche ad indossare una wire [George says that asking me to collaborate also means wearing a wire]
Simona: quello che ho detto a george e’ la verita [what i told george is the truth]
Simona: Che I’FBI mi ha dato un numero segreto offerto protezione e chiesto di informarli [That the FBI gave me a secret number and offered protection and asked to inform them]

Simona: Per aiutare I’ínvestigazioeb [To help the investigation]
Simona: Mentre George era investigato [While George was being investigated]

In a fourth text Simona claims the FBI said to her that they knew of her relationship with George and the discussion goes as follows curiously taking a turn to suggest Simona is a spy:

Simona: Mi hanno detto “sappiamo di connessioni politiche importanti in Europa e della relazione con George” [They said “we know about important political connections in Europe and the relationship with George”]
Simona: Volevano intrappolare me? [Did they want to trap me?]

Simona: O capire se potevo cooperare con loro nel set up? [Or understand if I could cooperate with them in the set up?]

Simona: Certo erano spaventati dal mio background [Of course they were scared of my background]
Simona: Cosa pensi? [What do you think?]
Simona: Perche Occhionero millanta chei io sia una spia? [Why does Occhionero boast that I am a spy?] [Guilio Occhionero is an Italian who claims he was set up by Deep State actors in early 2017.]

Simona: Non credo millanti questo [I don’t think this is bragging]
Simona: Occhionero come me crede che FBI ha creato il Russiagate per cospirare contro il cndidato e President Trump [Occhionero like me believes that FBI created Russiagate to conspire against the candidate and President Trump.]

We reached out to Simona Papadopoulos and she confirmed this information that the FBI asked her to spy on her husband! 

Ms. Papadopoulos shared with us the following:

At the time the FBI approached me at the airport in Chicago to deliver me a secret number, I wasn’t yet married to George, we were dating. They asked me to collaborate and inform them about anything I knew about George or other political figures in Europe ( I believe they were interested in Mifsud ‘s connections, some of them I knew quite well).

At the time, I didn’t quite understand what was going on until George explained to me they were approaching all his friends and acquaintances to spy on him. I called the FBI, I remember from Europe to this secret number, once, when George’s arrest had been unsealed and journalists started literally to contact me every hour.

I was concerned about our safety and the FBI indeed told me it was not a good moment to come to America .. regardless I went to see George a week later again and the rest is history ..Needless to say I never “spied “ on George .. my support to him has been unconditional.

The pressure though was enormous. Having the government on my back was unreal .. My reputation has been slaughtered by some clueless trolls in the process…

Simona said she was confronted by the FBI while inside the Chicago airport!

Simona Papadopoulos is another victim of the Obama-Comey-Brennan Deep State scandal.
She stood by her husband despite the onslaught by the liberal media.

WELCOME TO AMERICA: Simona Mangiante, Newlywed to George Papadopoulos, Was Falsely Accused of Lying Under Oath But Now She Gets the Last Laugh

This is shocking!  Was this even legal? 

The FBI should not be in the business of asking foreign born individuals to come spy on innocent Americans – especially those they are dating or their spouses.  This is outrageous!

Simona gets the final comment–

While i enormously appreciate the work of @gatewaypundit , we didn’t need bottom feeders like @MazzellMaurizio to leak dm to this journal. I have been pretty vocal about it .) be aware or this individual he has noting to do with the investigation apart millanting info… https://t.co/JD7dTYgdIq

‘CAN YOU STILL HEAR ME?’ Andrew Yang Asked About Biden’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Comment, Smiles Wanly, Doesn’t Answer

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 16:29

Democrats really don’t want to talk about Joe Biden telling a black radio host that “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

The story will, as usual, disappear as quickly as it emerged.

But that may not be fast enough for Andrew Yang.

The California entrepreneur who made a clumsy (or short-lived) run for the Democratic nomination this year endorsed Biden when he dropped out. On Friday, he appeared on CNN from his home.

CNN anchor Ana Cabrera played the clip and then asked, “What’s your reaction?”

Yang sat there smiling, but never said a word. The silence went on and on until Cabrera said, “Can you still hear me, Andrew? Oh, I think we might’ve lost the audio connection there.”

CNN asks Andrew Yang about Joe Biden saying Black Americans who don't support him "ain't Black" and all the sudden Yang can't hear and he leaves the show pic.twitter.com/KI5ipsHYkF

— Kyle Martinsen – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@KyleMartinsen_) May 23, 2020

And that was it. In an interesting twist, Yang — who is tech savvy — didn’t jump into Twitter to answer the question he couldn’t answer live on CNN.

Biden sat down for an online interview with Charlamagne tha God for his popular radio show “The Breakfast Club” on Friday and had this exchange:

CHARLAMAGNE: Listen, you gotta’ come see us when you come to New York VP Biden. It’s a long way until November, we got more questions.

BIDEN: You got more questions — Well, I’ll tell you, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.

The presumptive Democratic nominee was eventually pushed into apologizing. Biden expressed regret for his remarks during a phone conversation with The U.S. Black Chambers Inc., and offered the following thoughts about his conversation with Charlamagne.

“The bottom line of all of this perhaps I was much too cavalier,” Biden said. “I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted but nothing could be further from the truth.”

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy.”

Said Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson:

White liberal elitists have continuously dictated which black Americans are allowed to come to the table and have a voice. It is clear now more than ever, following these racist and dehumanizing remarks, that Joe Biden believes black men and women are incapable of being independent or free-thinking. He truly believes that he, a 77-year-old white man, should dictate how black people should behave. Biden has a history of racial condescension and today he once again proved what a growing number of black Americans and I have always known — Joe Biden does not deserve our votes.

THE COST OF QUARANTINE: ‘We’ve Seen A Year’s Worth Of Suicide Attempts In The Last Four Weeks,’ California Doc Says

Sun, 05/24/2020 - 15:51

Trauma doctors at a northern California medical center say the hospital has seen a huge spike in suicide attempts amid the coronavirus COVID-19 lockdowns.

Dr. Mike deBoisblanc, head of the trauma at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek near San Francisco, said the loss of more than 37 million jobs across the country amid state shutdowns of businesses deemed “nonessential” and lengthy lockdowns have affected mental health.

“We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,” he said. “I mean we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks,” deBoisblanc told ABC-7.

Kacey Hansen has worked as a trauma nurse at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek for almost 33 years. She is worried because not only are they seeing more suicide attempts, she says they are not able to save as many patients as usual.

“What I have seen recently, I have never seen before,” Hansen said. “I have never seen so much intentional injury.”

DeBoisblanc said the lockdowns and quarantines must end.

“Personally I think it’s time,” deBoisblanc said. “I think, originally, this [shelter-in-place order] was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients. We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering.”

Executive Director Tom Tamura said that people who are struggling need to seek help. “With help comes hope. I think that there are people and organizations out there that you can contact that can get you the information you need and resources you need to get you through this tough time.”

“Generally speaking the vast majority of people say they feel better after they call and get the resources they need,” he said.

Tamura said it’s understandable that people are having a difficult time during the lockdowns.

“I think people have found themselves disconnected from the normal supportive networks that they have, churches and schools and book clubs, you name it,” Tamura said. “And that, coupled with the closure of some counseling services, people were maybe in a little bit of shock.They were trying to weather the storm a bit but as that isolation has grown people have come to realize this isn’t a sprint it is marathon.”

The death toll from COVID-19 is approaching 100,000, according to Johns Hopkins. But the lockdowns could cause 77,000 deaths from suicides and drug overdoses, New York physician Dr. Nicole Saphier told DailyMailTV.

Dr. Saphier pointed to stark warnings from cities across the country showing rocketing overdose death rates, while a study from the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) found that each 1% increase in unemployment led to a 3.3% spike in drug overdoses and 1% increase in suicides.

‘The economy should be considered a public health emergency,’ Dr. Saphier told DailyMailTV. ‘The indirect consequences of the pandemic may far outweigh those of the direct virulence of the virus.’

‘Suicide, drug use, alcoholism, domestic violence have all been shown to increase during periods of strife and increased unemployment. This as depression and anxiety sets in with the uncertainty of the economic future of individuals and the country as a whole.’
