POTUS Trump Slams Fake News ABC For Falsely Reporting Paul Manafort Guilty of Manslaughter

2 hours 58 min ago


Screen image of Fake News ABC’s chyron claiming Paul Manafort guilty of manslaughter

During President Trump’s exchange with pool reporters Wednesday, fake news ABC reported on their chyron, “Paul Manafort pleads guilty to 5 charges of manslaughter.”

Trump’s former campaign manager did not plead guilty to manslaughter.

Of course fake news ABC claimed it was an “error.”

Strange how that “error” was so specific and of course another coincidence it was anti-Trump.

Weird how that always works out.

ABC claims they are ‘investigating how incorrect information was in their system and how and why it was allowed to air.’

Statement from @ABC News: We regret and apologize for the false lower third graphic that aired during our special report. We are investigating how incorrect information was in our system and how and why it was allowed to air. (1/2)

(cont.) We apologize to our viewers and to Mr. Manafort. There simply is no excuse for this sort of mistake. (2/2)

Later Wednesday afternoon, President Trump slammed fake news ABC and said Mueller’s 13 angry Democrats probably prepared the chyron.

Look what Fake ABC News put out. I guess they had it prepared from the 13 Angry Democrats leading the Witch Hunt! #StopTheBias pic.twitter.com/c0XOk1btEQ

California Names New Elementary School After Illegal Alien Activist

3 hours 27 min ago

Illegal alien and “immigrants rights” activist Jose Antonio Vargas is getting a new elementary school named after him in California (of course). Vargas has recently made headlines after propagating a fake picture depicting an immigrant child in a cage, except the picture isn’t from the one of the immigrant child centers, it was from a protest, where protesters were facetiously acting out what it is like for a kid to be in a cage. The move was so low even the very fake CNN set the record straight.

But back to the new school. SF Gate reports:

In a historic decision, a new public elementary school in Mountain View will be named after an undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas, an award-winning journalist, documentary filmmaker and activist.

The Mountain View Whisman School District board voted to name the new school after Vargas at its meeting Thursday following recent immigration enforcement decisions made by the Trump administration.

In just the past few weeks, thousands of immigrant children have been separated from their families in domestic raids and at the border, and this week U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that asylum protections will no longer be offered to victims of domestic violence and gang violence.

Vargas emigrated with his family from the Philippines to the U.S. when he was 12 years old. He attended Crittenden Middle School and Mountain View High School before going on to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and, ultimately, an immigration activist.

The school named in his honor will open in August 2019, said Laura Blakely, the president of the district’s school board.

She said Vargas’ name was first floated about a year ago, and the board signed off after a series of community input sessions and meetings.

“He’s a product of our school district,” Blakely said. “He’s been the face of the American dream for so many students who came here as children, and really grew up as Americans without having citizenship. We have so many students in our community who are ‘Dreamers,’ and he’s such an inspiration.”

“We are living through an ugly and hateful time in our country when immigrant families are under constant attack, even at schools,” said Patricia Hyland, who chairs Define American’s board of trustees and was Vargas’ former principal at Mountain View High School. “The district’s decision is an affirmation of American values and our belief in opening our doors of opportunities to all kinds of dreamers.”

Blakely said the decision was motivated in part by current news about immigration, but more so the achievements of Vargas.

“Immigration happens to be the flash point, as it has been for decades, but I think even if that weren’t going on, he would be an inspirational leader,” she said.

The district also considered naming the school after Steve Jobs or other tech leaders because of the school’s location in Silicon Valley.

“But we didn’t want to do that,” Blakely said. “We wanted to pick someone who embodied the values of what you can do with an education, as Jose does.”

You may remember Vargas for his MTV docuseries “White People”, which the network quickly shelved due to the public outrage. Even the leftist Slate website called out the “White People” show for the fraud that it was. The entire racist show was uploaded to YouTube.

POTUS Trump Taunts Protester Forcibly Removed From Minnesota Rally “He’s Going Home to His Mom, Say Hello to Mommy!” (VIDEO)

3 hours 37 min ago

President Trump traveled to Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday to hold a rally.
The crowd was so massive they had to move to AMSOIL Arena to accommodate more people. The rally was previously planned for the DECC Arena, reported Fox News.

President Trump is expected to endorse House candidate Peter Stauber for the state’s 8th district.

President Trump taunted a protester as he was forcibly removed from the rally.

“So we have a single protester. Goodbye darling,” Trump said as the crowd booed.

“He’s going home to his mom. Say hello to mommy,” President Trump said as the crowd erupted into cheers.

The President then predicted the fake news will report tomorrow that there was a massive protest at the Trump rally even though it was a single protester.

President Trump continued to taunt the protester.

“Get him outta here! Out!” demanded Trump.

The protester had long hair so the President said, “Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do”

Watch the unhinged protester get tossed out of the rally:

Oregon’s Bisexual Governor Skips Pride Parade, Deceptively Recycles Last Year’s Photos

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 23:16

Oregon Governor Kate Brown takes every opportunity to tout the fact that she is the nation’s first openly bisexual governor. It would stand to reason that she would participate in high profile LGBTQAULMNOP+ events throughout the state, specifically in Portland. Portland’s Pride Parade was held on June 17th of this year, 2018. Kate Brown posted a few pictures on her facebook page of her at the event, proclaiming “Happy Pride, Oregon! #LGBT #pride #loveislove.”

There’s just one problem. She wasn’t actually at the parade. The pictures she posted were from previous years’ parades. Instead of actually partaking in the 2018 parade, as she makes it appear, she was attending a fundraising junket with leftist Californian billionaires, including Lorene Jobs, widow of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, and Patagonia founder Ivon Chouinard.

Her republican opponent, Knute Buehler, made a post on his facebook page calling her out for this deceptive tactic, as he and Kate Brown both pander for votes.

Let’s dive a little deeper into this. Here are the pictures from previous years’ Pride events that Kate Brown recycled. Click to enlarge any of them.

Here’s one of the pics she posted on June 17th, 2018:Here’s the original picture, from 2017:

The picture of her in the convertible Mustang, posted on June 17th, 2018:

This picture was originally from 2015, when she was the parade’s Grand Marshall.

The picture of her with the two little girls? That’s been recycled three times now. It was originally from 2015, recycled for 2016, and used yet a third time for 2018.

Note the irony of the “#BeTrue” shirt, when in reality, she’s being anything but true.

In lieu of actually being at the parade, she dispatched some of her staffers, interns, and volunteers to march in her place.

Pride Month in Oregon

Change takes time, courage, and work — but it's always worth it. I'm the first and only openly LGBTQ governor in our country, and I know I won't be the last. We're making progress here in Oregon, and I'm proud to stand with the LGBTQ community this Pride Month and every month.

SICK! Fox News Host Juan Williams Defends Peter Fonda’s Threat to Kidnap Barron Trump and Lock Him in Cage With Pedophiles (VIDEO)

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 23:05

As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks reported, Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker Peter Fonda is calling for Barron Trump to be placed in a cage with pedophiles, children of ICE agents to be threatened, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be stripped naked and whipped in public.

Below is a screenshot of Peter Fonda’s (Hanoi Jane Fonda’s brother) tweet because he deleted his post:

First Lady Melania called Secret Service after Peter Fonda threatened to kidnap her son, Barron Trump.

Fox News host of “The Five,” Juan Williams, defended Peter Fonda after he threatened to kidnap Barron Trump and lock him in a cage with pedophiles.

Juan Williams downplayed Peter Fonda’s criminal threat towards the President’s child and dismissed Gregg Gutfeld after he called Fonda’s tweet “disgusting” and said it was just “poorly worded,” which caused a huge backlash from his co-hosts.

“That’s not poorly worded,” shot back “The Five” co-host, Kimberly Guilfoyle who was appalled by Juan Williams. ‘What Peter Fonda did was call for a criminal sexual act against a child,’ Guilfoyle continued.

It’s as if the 2016 election never happened.
Speaker Paul Ryan will allow votes this week on immigration including amnesty for illegal immigrant Dreamers.

Speaker Paul Ryan promised to pass amnesty for illegals in February.
Ryan also promised to pass amnesty back in September 2017.

President Trump promised Democrats amnesty for up to 3 million illegals if they would agree to build a border wall.
Democrats refused the deal.

So now pro-amnesty Republicans are determined to give Democrats what they want anyway.
These politicians are working against the American people.

President Trump trolled Obama, Hillary, Schumer and Democrats after signing an Executive Order to keep families together at the border.

President Trump tweeted a video compilation of Obama admitting the immigration system is broken, Schumer clearly stating illegal immigration is wrong and a flashback of Hillary Clinton saying, “just because you child gets across the border doesn’t mean your child gets to stay.”

President Trump brilliantly exposed the Democrats for being the lying, obstructionist hypocrites they are with this video.

Crooked Hillary Begs For Money to Fight ‘Trump’s Cruel Immigration Policy’

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 20:34

On Wednesday, Crooked Hillary continued to beg for donations to combat ‘Trump’s cruel immigration policy.’

Never let a [fake] crisis go to waste, right?

Hillary Clinton, one of the most corrupt, criminal liars to ever hold public office in this country had the nerve to cite a Bible verse and beg for money this week from her Twitter account to fight against current immigration laws that separate illegal alien children from ‘parents’ at the border.

This exact law was in place during the Obama years, but now since Trump is president, it is suddenly a humanitarian crisis and Republicans are evil for allowing it to happen.

We have no definitive proof the children are even related to the adults they show up with at the border which only encourages child trafficking.

In fact, Saagar Enjeti from The Daily Caller reports, “single males with ‘children’ are increasingly arriving. Neither the child nor the adult can answer basic questions about each other, authorities suspect rampant fraud.”

Hillary celebrated raising over $500,000 off of the media’s manufactured border crisis.

Thanks to all of you, we have now crossed the $500,000 mark. Here’s where your generosity is going, let’s keep it up!

Man Arrested After Threatening to Kill GOP Lawmaker’s Children Over ‘Trump’s Cruel Immigration Policy’

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 19:48

The Fake News media’s manufactured crisis over ‘Trump’s cruel immigration policy’ of separating children from their ‘parents’ is going to get somebody killed.

A Stuart, Florida man was arrested Tuesday after he threatened to kill Rep. Brian Mast’s (R-FL) children over ‘Trump’s immigration policy.’

Congressman Brian Mast is an army Veteran and double-amputee; he lost both of his legs while serving in Afghanistan.


Unhinged leftist Laurence Key; photo St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office

 

TCPalm reported:

A Stuart man was arrested Tuesday after a federal complaint states he threatened U.S. Rep. Brian Mast’s children over the Trump administration’s child-separation immigration policy.

Laurence Key called Mast’s Washington office Monday and said, “I’m going to find the congressman’s kids and kill them,” an intern who took the call told the FBI, according to a federal complaint filed in U.S. District Court. “If you are going to separate kids at the border, I’m going to kill his kids.”

Key is charged with communication of a threat to kidnap or injure a person in regard to Mast’s children, a girl and two boys younger than 8.

Key previously has called Mast’s office 478 times, the complaint says, and also contacted the offices of Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson Monday.

Key told an FBI investigator and Martin County sheriff’s deputy he never threatened to kill Mast’s children, but admitted he said “Mast should be separated from his kids” if he supported the Trump administration policy, the federal complaint says.

Key lives in Twin Lakes mobile home park in the 4600 block of Southeast Circle Way, the complaint says.

He regularly attends Martin County political events and often tweets about political issues as well as posts and comments about them on Facebook.

Key is scheduled to be arraigned July 2 in Fort Pierce.

Violent leftists are coming unhinged over this manufactured crisis at the border that has been going on for years and years.

First Lady Melania Trump called the Secret Service Wednesday after Jane Fonda’s brother, Peter Fonda, threatened to kidnap her only son, Barron Trump and put him in a cage with pedophiles.

Rush Limbaugh warned; “If the media keeps this up — if they keep up generating this hysteria — somebody’s gonna get killed.” “I think we’re pretty close to somebody getting killed already.”

The Democrats do not want to solve the immigration problem. They would rather the problem persist so they can continue to wring their hands over another manufactured crisis to distract from the damning IG report and robust economy.

On Wednesday, at 3PM ET President Trump signed an Executive Order to keep families together at the border, confirms “zero-tolerance” prosecution policy will stay in place.

BREAKING UPDATE: President Trump Signs Executive Order to Keep Families Together at Border

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 19:15

Democrats on Tuesday rejected a bill that would keep illegal immigrant families together on the border.

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Tuesday dismissed a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together.

Homeland Security officials say there have been 148 cases where someone fraudulently posed as a family member of children at the U.S. border from October to April.

On Wednesday, the White House announced it is considering executive action to prevent children from being separated from their parents.

Fox News reported:

The White House is considering executive action to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally, Fox News has learned — a step that could avoid the family separations that have triggered a national outcry and political crisis for Republicans.

The action under consideration would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time. This comes as congressional Republicans scramble to draft legislation to address the same issue, but face challenges mustering the votes.

The separations stem from the administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, which aims to prosecute all illegal border crossers. But because of a 1997 order and related decisions, children cannot be detained for longer than 20 days with the adults.

Sources told Fox News that such an executive action by Trump could be seen to run afoul of the 1997 order and would likely draw a lawsuit. But the White House wants to try to take steps to uphold the enforcement of the law, while at the same time lessening the trauma of children being separated from their parents.

Senator Chuck Schumer proved what we know to be true.

The Democrats do not want to solve the immigration problem. They would rather the problem persist so they can continue to wring their hands over another manufactured crisis to distract from the damning IG report and robust economy.

Update: At 3PM ET President Trump signed an Executive Order to keep families together at the border, confirms “zero-tolerance” prosecution policy will stay in place.

Manhunt Underway For Pennsylvania Man Accused of Threatening to ‘Put a Bullet in President Trump’s Head’

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 18:46

US Marshals are searching for 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania after he threatened to ‘put a bullet in Trump’s head,’ in a social media post.

The man is considered armed and dangerous.


26-year-old Shawn Christy

CBS Pittsburgh reported:

 U.S. Marshals are searching for a Central Pennsylvania man accused of threatening President Trump and other officials.

WNEP reports that Marshals are looking for 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania.

Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Christy reportedly posted a social media post threatening to “put a bullet in the head of President Trump.”

The post has since been deleted.

Christy also posted about Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.

WNEP also reports that this isn’t the first time Christy has been in trouble for making threats.

He and his father were sentenced to probation in 2012 for making hundreds of threatening phone calls to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her attorney.

Police say if you see Christy to please call 911 or the U.S. Marshals at (484) 358-1974.

Sarah Palin previously won a restraining order against Shawn Christy after he threatened to rape her and her daughters.

The left is completely unhinged; these threats are due to constant negative media coverage of Trump.

Because of the fake news media, crazy leftists in America believe Trump is literally Hitler who keeps babies in cages and committed treason when he ‘colluded with Russia’ to win the 2016 election.

$5,000 reward for information leading to Shawn Christy’s arrest:

ROGER STONE EXCLUSIVE: Comey’s FBI Tried to Entrap Me and Compromise Donald Trump

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 18:01

By Roger Stone

I believe there is overwhelming evidence that I was set-up by an FBI informant who was a Russian national. This happened in May of 2016 when I met the informant for 20 minutes in a South Florida cafe.

It is important to note that this is prior to Hillary Clinton playing the “Russia Card” in June. It does however, meet the time frame for the formulation of the phony dossier by a British operative working with Russian intelligence and the FBI mole Stefan Halper’s mating dance with George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.

I have publicly admitted that I forgot this 20 minute meeting in the intense and busy events of the early stages of a presidential campaign- but since nothing improper or illegal grew out of this encounter I have no reason to dissemble or hide it.

And although the FBI informant of 17 years is of Russian nationality, nothing happened in the 20 minute meeting which I agreed to take at the request of Michael Caputo, a Trump campaign official and longtime colleague. “Henry Greenberg” an alias for a man who was admitted to the country on an informant visa signed by the Miami Bureau of the FBI, citing the “public interest” of having a felon, who spent 10 years in prison for violent crime and is associated with the Russian mob, in the country tried to shake me down for $2 million. I declined.

He had been deported from the country in 2000. His presence in the United States in 2016, without an FBI-wired visa, is unlikely based on public records showing the government had permitted him into the country for these purposes on 9 separate previous occasions. Violent felons with prison records are not permitted into the United States.

While it is noteworthy that I simply forgot this meeting it is also inconsequential- nothing changed hands.

The Washington Post confirmed my claim with “Greenberg” that I flatly rejected his demand for $2 million dollars for “unspecified information” damaging to Hillary Clinton. More importantly, I rejected the suggestion that I get Donald Trump to purchase this unspecified material which I now see as a clear attempt to entrap and compromise the president.

I can see how some people might think that a $2 million dollar demand is memorable, but in fact with Trump claiming he was planning on spending “what it takes” of his own money and due to his reputation as a multi-billionaire it’s not unusual; in the 39 years I’ve known Trump I have seen various business and political types seek his financial support, based on his reputation for wealth.

This is being treated in the media much like Donald Trump Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Nothing illegal or improper was done as a result of this meeting. and similar questions about her visa and the fact that she met with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS both before and after her Trump Tower parley seems to be missing from the main stream media narrative. This reeks of the same kind of set-up that the FBI informant Henry Greenberg tried on me.

This looks to me as part of the insurance policy that Peter Strzok wrote about in his FBI text messages. I didn’t bite and more importantly the notion was so ludicrous that I never mentioned it to candidate Trump or President Trump or anyone in his campaign.

The hysteria of the Democrats and their handmaidens in the main street media abetted by a healthy fake news presence manifesting itself as New York Magazine, VOX, Slate, Think Progress and their downmarket cousin Raw Garbage (You can figure it out) promote a narrative in which “meeting with a Russian” is considered a high crime.

They choose to ignore the $145 million dollars in cash Bill and Hillary have taken through their foundation from the board members of Rosatom, the Russian state-owned energy company, to the half million dollars Bill Clinton got from the same company for a “speech” in Moscow. They ignore the millions that John and Tony Podesta made in Russia on lucrative banking, gas and Uranium deals. And they ignore what may be the largest single treasonous financial crime in American history – Uranium One. All of this at a time when Rosatom was making a play for contracts worth billions of dollars and control 20% of America’s Uranium.

The Washington Post revealed that the office of the OSC has a text message exchange between Michael Caputo and myself which is entirely exculpatory proving that I considered that meeting a shakedown and believed there was no value and no interest in paying for anything.

My lawyers have provided this recollection to the House Intelligence committee and we have agreed to turn over any documents pertaining to it to the Senate Intelligence Committee where I am certain I will be questioned about it. I only hope that the committee will have the wisdom to conduct this as an open public hearing.

The real question isn’t why I didn’t remember this meeting that proceeded Russophobia, it’s why James Comey’s FBI tried to entrap me and compromise Donald Trump.

Far-Left MSNBC Crank Rachel Maddow Breaks Down in Fake Tears Live on Air Over Immigration Policy (VIDEO)

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 17:33

Far-left MSNBC hack Rachel Maddow gave the performance of her life Tuesday evening as she broke down in tears reading a breaking story from the Associate Press about illegal immigrant children being detained.

 
Rachel Maddow going for an Oscar

 

Rachel Maddow really wants an Oscar.

On Tuesday evening Maddow read a breaking story from the Associated Press and did her best to look an emotional wreck.

Partial transcript:

Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three “tender age” shelters in South Texas, The Associated Press has learned.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.

Since the White House announced its zero tolerance policy in early May, more than 2,300 children have been taken from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, resulting in a new influx of young children requiring government care. The government has faced withering critiques over images of some of the children in cages inside U.S. Border Patrol processing stations.

You gotta watch this.

VIDEO:

Rachel Maddow then continued the drama onto her Twitter account because her fake tears weren’t enough.

Ugh, I’m sorry.

If nothing else, it is my job to actually be able to speak while I’m on TV.

What I was trying to do — when I suddenly couldn’t say/do anything — was read this lede:

1/6

— Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow) June 20, 2018

One question for Rachel Maddow and the hysterical leftists. Did you all cry and demand change when Obama kept children in cages wrapped in foil?

Democrats on Tuesday rejected a bill that would keep illegal immigrant families together on the border.

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Tuesday dismissed a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together.

Homeland Security officials say there have been 148 cases where someone fraudulently posed as a family member of children at the U.S. border from October to April.

On Wednesday, the White House announced it is considering executive action to prevent children from being separated from their parents.

The Democrats do not want to solve the immigration problem. They would rather the problem persist so they can continue to wring their hands over another manufactured crisis to distract from the damning IG report and robust economy.

BREAKING: First Lady Melania Calls Secret Service After Peter Fonda Threatens to Kidnap Barron Trump

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 16:35

As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks reported, Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker Peter Fonda is calling for Barron Trump to be placed in a cage with pedophiles, children of ICE agents to be threatened, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be stripped naked and whipped in public.

First Lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman released a statement Wednesday that the Secret Service has been notified.

Below is a screenshot of Peter Fonda’s (Hanoi Jane Fonda’s brother) tweet because he deleted his post:

Social media users called for Secret Service to pay the 78-year-old brother of Jane Fonda a visit.

Now this…

First Lady Melania called Secret Service after Peter Fonda threatened to kidnap her son, Barron Trump.

The Daily Caller spoke to First Lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman:

Spokesperson for the First Lady, Stephanie Grisham, has informed the Daily Caller that the Secret Service has been “notified” of the threat. “The tweet is sick and irresponsible and USSS has been notified,” Grisham said.

Peter Fonda also threatened Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and called for her to be stripped naked and whipped in public.

The unhinged actor went on to say that “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passersby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed for posterity.”

Threatening government officials of the United States is a felony.

Analysis –Crooked Comey Reopened Hillary Email Case in October 2016 Because Good Cops in the FBI Leaked Info to Congress – Comey Later Fired the Good Cops

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 16:09

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Fired and Corrupt FBI Head James Comey said that he only heard about Hillary’s emails located on Anthony Weiner’s laptop in late October of 2016.  But then he said that he was scared that the FBI in New York would release the emails if he didn’t reopen the investigation.

After performing another fake review of the emails, the FBI again exonerated Hillary a few days before the November election.

Now Chairman Devin Nunes from the House reports that they had received the emails before the 2016 election. It looks more probable that the emails were leaked to Congress and that is why Comey reopened the case.

No worries, Comey made sure it doesn’t happen again as FBI Agents in New York were later fired as noted by corrupt FBI Agent Peter Strzok in a text to his corrupt FBI attorney girlfriend Lisa Page.

The FBI Director in Charge (ADIC) of New York Office William Sweeney was told about the discovery of huge numbers of Clinton emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop on September 28, 2016. Weiner was a perp who was married to Hillary’s top aide Huma Abedin and was Senator Chuck Schumer’s protégé. He was under investigation for sexting an underage girl.

First, FBI Assistant Director in Charge (ADIC) of New York Office WILLIAM SWEENEY is told about the discovery of huge numbers of Clinton emails on Weiners laptop on Sep 28 2016

He immediately tells FBI Deputy Director MCCABE, in charge of the Mid Year Exam Clinton email case pic.twitter.com/l2IYn20rmH

— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) June 16, 2018


ADIC Sweeney also told two other senior New York officials and one of them confirms that they also informed McCabe about the Clinton/Weiner emails.

SWEENEY also tells other senior FBI leadership (two EAD’s) one of whom tells the OIG under oath that they also informed MCCABE about the Clinton/Weiner emails. In his mind, there was “no doubt” MCCABE immediately “understood the gravity of what the find was” pic.twitter.com/IKNSqbWsM9

— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) June 16, 2018


Then nothing happened for 21 days. It is unclear why or who all knew about the emails, but former FBI Head McCabe appears to be the fall guy for delaying doing anything with the emails.

Then literally NOTHING happens for **TWENTY ONE DAYS**

That’s not an opinion: the IG could find “no evidence” – ZERO – that anything happened between Oct 4-24 either by the Mid Year Exam team or anyone in FBI leadership, inc MCABE & COMEY

FBI New York then escalate to DOJ pic.twitter.com/FyKYgG1UwI

— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) June 16, 2018


Then the story goes that McCabe contacted the team that worked to exonerate Hillary from her email crimes on October 27 , 2016, and called for a meeting.

Only after the DOJ escalation, MCCABE emails COMEY at the crack of dawn on Oct 27 asking him to meet with the Mid Year Exam Team pic.twitter.com/tEyyHUWUBO

— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) June 16, 2018


On October 27th, Comey says that he was then told that Weiner’s laptop contained hundreds of thousands of emails but we really aren’t sure if this was the first time he heard of them. In his book he suggests that this is the case but who knows – was this just another lie from Comey?

At that Oct 27 meeting @Comey is told the Weiner laptop contains “hundreds of thousands of [Clinton domain] emails”

And that there is “no chance” a review of them can be completed before the election

No chance: from MYE team who have already had to review many Clinton emails pic.twitter.com/f4EgWfy5sw

— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) June 16, 2018


Comey opened up the Clinton email case again in late October 2016.  According to far left US News and World Report in January of this year, the environment at the FBI was a mess because of Comey –

In fact, internal bureau dissension was part of the context in which Comey made the decision to forego standard FBI practice regarding announcements that could affect elections and disclose the new emails to Congress. “FBI Director James Comey was driven in part by a fear of leaks from within his agency when he decided to tell Congress the FBI was investigating newly discovered emails related to Hillary Clinton, law enforcement sources said on Thursday,” Reuters’ Mark Hosenball reported in November 2016. And as ProPublica and The New Yorker put it last May: “There was another motivation for Comey’s decision to ‘speak’: FBI officials feared that news of the new emails would leak out, damaging the Bureau and its director. The primary source of anxiety was the FBI’s own New York field office, which was handling the Weiner case and harbored deep pockets of anti-Clinton sentiment. … Comey’s deputy also made clear [to a Justice Department official protesting his plan to release the information] that the FBI director was ‘very concerned’ about a leak — that the news ‘was coming out anyway.’’

The fact that Comey was scared of individuals within his department leaking the information on the emails is clearly the real reason Comey released the news about the emails and opened up the Clinton email case again just before the election.

Corrupt and criminal FBI Agent Peter Strzok was assigned again to the case.  He worked and somehow performed miracles on “1,355,980 electronic files (pg 389), containing 350,000 emails and 344,000 Blackberry communications [that] were reviewed between October 30th and the morning of November 6th, 2016.”

As reported previously, the problem is that there were only three people in the Mid-Year-Event team granted authority to physically do the Clinton email review. FBI Agent Peter Strzok was one of them and he said that they were able to review the number of emails through the use of “some amazing things to rapidly de-duplicate” the emails.

The New York FBI case agent assigned to the Weiner investigation, a certified Digital Extraction Technician, as well as the FBI forensics team in Quantico say it was impossible to use the conflicted metadata to “de-duplicate” the emails. Therefore someone in the FBI is lying again.

We now know that some good cops at the FBI did provide information to Congress about Weiner emails.

In light of IG’s failure to look at leaking/anti-Clinton bias among agents in NYC field office, this seems quite relevant. Nunes says “good FBI agents” told him about Weiner laptop in late September 2016. pic.twitter.com/BU6ysY7Xwn

— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) June 15, 2018


We also know that Peter Strzok in a text with Lisa Page noted that FBI Agents in New York were later fired. This was important enough that they noted it with each other and also the FBI redacted part of the text messages about these individuals being fired.  Clearly there is more to this text that will be cleared up when unredacted.

So in summary –

Comey was forced to reopen the Hillary email scandal due to some good cops in the FBI who leaked the information to Congress. Later Comey fired these good cops for leaking.

And also – What in the hell is in the Weiner emails?

Jane Fonda’s Brother Calls for Barron Trump to Be Locked in Cage With Pedophiles

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 15:35

Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker Peter Fonda is calling for Barron Trump to be placed in a cage with pedophiles, children of ICE agents to be threatened, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to be stripped naked and whipped in public.

Social media users are now calling for Secret Service to pay the 78-year-old brother of Jane Fonda a visit.

Responding to a call for people to harass ICE agents, Fonda wrote, “Sounds great. We don’t have to take the agents [sic] kids, we only need to surround their schools and scare the s**t out of them and worry the f*** out of the agents frm CBE ICE & REGULAR BORDER PATROL AGENTS.”

The unhinged actor went on to say that “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passersby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed for posterity.”

Threatening government officials of the United States is a felony.

Taking aim directly at the Trump family, Fonda wrote in all-caps that, “WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. FUCK.”

Speaking of pedophiles, in 2009, Fonda declared that Hollywood Director Roman Polanski “wasn’t a criminal.”

Border Patrol Agent Sets CNN Anchor Straight on Deadly Horrors Parents Put Their Migrant Kids Through

Wed, 06/20/2018 - 08:24

Chris Cabrera, a Border Patrol agent and spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, appeared on CNN Tuesday afternoon with anchor Brooke Baldwin to talk about the immigration crisis at the Southern border. Cabrera spoke from McAllen, Texas.

Baldwin tried to get Cabrera to concede to her liberal viewpoint on the Trump administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ crackdown on illegal immigration but Cabrera wasn’t playing her game. Baldwin played the tape of the crying migrant children and tried repeatedly to get Cabrera to condemning the Trump administration’s enforcement of immigration law but Cabrera demurred.

Instead, Cabrera gave Baldwin and CNN viewers an education on the deadly horrors migrant children are forced to experience because of the parents or others who use and abuse them to illegally cross the border.

CNN video posted to YouTube. Below the video is the complete transcript from CNN. (H/t Benny Johnson, Daily Caller.)

“I want to get back now just to these voices that we can’t hear enough of from this crisis on the border, these young children who have been taken from their parents.

Audio of their cries comes from the nonprofit news outlet ProPublica. It reports these children are somewhere between the years of 4 and 10.

The reporting also captured the words of border agents caring for them.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED CHILD (through translator): Daddy!

(CRYING)

UNIDENTIFIED CHILD (through translator): Daddy! Daddy!

UNIDENTIFIED CHILD (through translator): Mommy!

(CRYING)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (through translator): Well, we have an orchestra here, right?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (through translator): What we’re missing is a conductor.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

BALDWIN: With me now from McAllen, Texas, Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera. He’s also the spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council.

Chris, thank you so much for being with me.

CHRIS CABRERA, BORDER PATROL AGENT: No, thank you for having me.

BALDWIN: Listen, I know you’re a father. I know you’re a father of four.

I know this is hard for you too. But when you hear that audio where one of these agents refers to the cries of children, he says (SPEAKING SPANISH) right? “We have an orchestra.”

What did you think?

CABRERA: Actually, this is the first I’m hearing.

I mean, I try and distance myself a lot of — from a lot of this. I think the real issue we need to get at here is, we need to solve this problem.

(CROSSTALK)

BALDWIN: But, Chris,, hang on, hang on. I can’t let you off the hook. Hang on.

But if that is — that is the audio, even if you’re hearing it for the first time, and you hear this Border Patrol hearing saying — speaking about the cries of children, saying, “We have an orchestra,” and then the next one says, “Well, all we need is a conductor,” I need to have you respond to that.

CABRERA: Well, I mean, it’s probably — you know, like I said, I wasn’t there. I don’t know.

And, you know, it’s — they’re probably just making light of a bad situation. It is what it is, you know? You can’t change that.

(CROSSTALK)

BALDWIN: Hang on, hang on, hang on. (CROSSTALK)

CABRERA: You can’t change the fact that that is what it is.

BALDWIN: But, Chris — but making light of a bad situation, why should you ever make light of these children being ripped from their parents, period?

CABRERA: Well, you know, look at it this way.

I understand where you’re coming from. I don’t think everybody understands what’s actually happening down here. You have a lot of these kids that are coming down here and put through terrible, terrible situations by their parents.

They’re brought over in extremely dangerous conditions and in extremely dangerous terrain. And all this can be avoided if they just go through the port of entry. There would be no crime committed by them and they wouldn’t get separated.

Why don’t they do this is beyond me. But this problem is very easily solved, at least on the short-term basis, by going through the port of entry. If they choose to go through the river, they’re committing a crime. Just like anyone else, they’re subject to arrest.

And we all know, when you get arrested, you don’t get to stay with your family. It’s just the sad reality of life.

BALDWIN: So, a couple of things.

And I think you’re right to point out the port of entry — I think there’s so much being thrown at people who don’t know as much about immigration certainly as you do as a Border Patrol agent, right?

But there a couple of ways to come into this country. If you are an undocumented immigrant and you are in the Rio Grande River and you come out on the other side, that is illegal, right? If you are coming across from the…

CABRERA: Even if you’re a U.S. citizen and you do that, it’s illegal.

BALDWIN: It’s illegal. It’s illegal.

If you’re coming across the — let’s say the Matamoros, Mexico, bridge on over to Texas at — across that bridge at that port of entry and you’re seeking asylum, that is legal. I know you have to be inspected and the process needs to be — needs to happen to be appropriate.

But the problem is, even in some of those cases, those families — I talked to an NPR reporter yesterday — some of those families are being turned away. And it’s not just a day delay. It’s an indefinite delay.

CABRERA: Well, and therein lies the problem.

We have had this situation going on for four years now. And for some reason, we haven’t fixed it. I don’t think you can necessarily blame it on one administration or the other. It started under one, and it’s continuing under — under another. It hasn’t — it hasn’t been fixed and it needs to be fixed.

Right now, we have this beacon of we will leave the light on for you, you come across illegally, and we will let you into the country. And if you guys have seen some of the stuff that we have seen down here, you would understand just how important it is to have a tough stance, to divert people from coming here.

When you see a 12-year-old girl with a Plan B pill or with their — their parents put her on birth control because they know that getting violated as part of a journey, that’s just a terrible way to live.

BALDWIN: Oh.

CABRERA: When you see a 4-year-old girl traveling completely alone with just her parents’ phone number written across her shirt, I mean, come on now.

Something needs to be done. We had a 9-year-old boy last year have a heatstroke and die in front of us with no family around. And that’s because we’re allowing people to continue to take advantage of this system.

[15:15:05]

And let’s be honest here. If we want the law changed, then we need to do — that’s on Congress. That’s on nobody else but Congress. They need to come in there. They need to get to work and they need to change this law.

Until then, us, as Border Patrol agents, we have a duty to enforce these laws. And we will continue to do it, until they change this law. And, hopefully, they will.

BALDWIN: No.

And just — let me just underscore some of what you’re saying. Seeing a 9-year-old boy suffering heatstroke, seeing young girls come to you with Plan B or birth control pills because their parents provide them for them because they know the journey involve them being raped, this is what you are seeing. And I can’t even begin, Chris, to put myself in your shoes.

But keeping the focus on the kids, America is outraged by what is happening. And I want you, as a Border Patrol agent, can you assure everyone watching that you and your Border Patrol colleagues are treating these children humanely?

CABRERA: I can tell you with absolute certainty that they’re being treated humanely.

Most of our agents are parents. I have seen guys — and I have done it myself — you give your last bottle of water to a kid. You will take a toy out of your car to give to one of these kids because you know the situation they’re in.

BALDWIN: Yes.

CABRERA: Agents are very sympathetic. We’re human. We’re fathers. We have families. We do a lot for the communities here, whether or not a camera is involved.

Our agents are very involved. And nobody saves more lives along the southwestern border than the U.S. Border Patrol. And I can tell you for a fact one of the worst things that you would ever have to do is have to pull the body of a young kid out of the river because they were crossing and they just didn’t make it.

So, something needs to change, so we can avoid some of these tragedies that happen. Granted, having these kids in detention centers, obviously, it’s not ideal.

BALDWIN: Yes.

CABRERA: But it’s far better than the alternative, a lot of these kids not making it.

BALDWIN: Yes. Yes.

And I know you say ultimately it’s up to you. You’re doing your job. But I know you say it’s up Congress.

But, actually, it is up to President Trump. I mean, they don’t have to separate these children from their parents. That is what’s different from, say, under the Obama administration vs. now.

So, Chris, just straight up, do you think the president should right now end this policy of separating families?

CABRERA: I think — I think you’re wrong there. It is a law.

And the law needs to be enforced, regardless — if we don’t like the law, we can’t just decide which law we’re going…

BALDWIN: What is the law?

CABRERA: As far — if you come across that river illegally, you’re subject to arrest and to prosecution. And you will get arrested and you will get prosecuted.

BALDWIN: But this is the difference, Chris.

CABRERA: If you don’t like that option, then you can go through the port of entry.

BALDWIN: Listen, I absolutely hear you. And I respect that law.

CABRERA: Say again?

BALDWIN: I hear you. And I respect that law.

But there is no law on the books that says if a family comes over illegally, that the parents and the children need to be separated.

It’s a zero tolerance policy that the Trump administration put into place this spring. That’s the difference between now and a couple years ago.

CABRERA: OK.

Well, and the thing is, is, not every family is getting separated. Some are. Some aren’t. It depends on the circumstances, if you have a criminal history.

For instance, just a couple of days ago, we caught a guy coming across with his 5-year-old daughter. And we had to separate that family, reason being he had a criminal conviction and he was subject to prosecution. He had a criminal conviction for rape here in the United States.

So, I mean, obviously, we wouldn’t want that guy walking free. But we had to separate that family.

BALDWIN: No. Sure.

(CROSSTALK)

CABRERA: I don’t see anybody up in arms over that one.

(CROSSTALK)

BALDWIN: Sure. No. And I think that, yes, if you’re a criminal…

(CROSSTALK)

BALDWIN: Go ahead. Go ahead. What happens to the little girl?

CABRERA: Yes.

She’s going to get — she got — she gets placed in a center, until they can find some family that they can place her with, whether it’s here in the United States or back in her home country.

And another thing that we look at is we get all the time, daily, that people are claiming to be family units, and they’re not. And that’s very dangerous for these kids. If we don’t find those — I mean, what can come of those kids once this adult doesn’t have the need for this child anymore?

BALDWIN: Sure.

And I know some children are used as mules, are they not? Some children, Chris, are used — are used as mules. Some of this is nefarious. It’s not all just a family.

Can you still hear me?

CABRERA: Yes. You know, yes, it is. Some of these children are used like that. And it’s a shame. And I think the other thing that needs to be looked at here is, we do have a lot of unaccompanied children coming over.

And the fact remains is, the parents are already here in the United States. And they’re sending for these kids. And these kids are traveling solo across two or three countries. And, when they get here, they are reunited with your — the families.

And, to me, that is mind-blowing, because you can’t do that as a United States citizen. You can’t send your 5-year-old kid to ride on top of a train through three states, and when they get there, they’re coming back to you.

You would get prosecuted. Yet when it comes to illegal families, we put on the kid gloves with them and we don’t — we don’t look out for the best interest of this child. And that’s another thing that needs to be changed.

BALDWIN: Sure.

Chris Cabrera, as a Border Patrol agent, we just haven’t heard from as many of you all. And I appreciate you coming on live national TV to explain what your job is like and enforcing it, and also just what you see in being a father. I appreciate you. I appreciate your voice. Thank you.

CABRERA: All right, thank you for having me.

BALDWIN: Thank you.”
