GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 12:48

Muslim Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar attacked Christian conservatives for being pro-life in a lengthy rant on the House floor.

She even had the audacity to say, “I am frustrated every single time I hear people speaking about their faith.”

These pro-abortion Democrats are absolutely sick.

This is the same woman who had Congress change it’s rules so she could wear her Muslim hijab to work.

Hah-Hah! Candace Owens and Cornel West Argue Over Maxine Waters and Her Low IQ (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 03:39

The next nutty liberal who steps in a ring with conservative star Candace Owens may want to think twice.

There is a reason why Facebook and the tech giants want to silence Candace Owens.
She’s brilliant, beautiful, confident, poised, conservative and appealing.

Wednesday night on The Ingraham Angle Turning Point’s Candace Owens debated Cornel West on the Trump accomplishments.

During their debate the topic turned to Maxine Waters and her IQ.
Cornel West argued that Mad Maxine has a high IQ. Candace stopped him in his tracks and agreed with President Trump that Maxine Waters is a very low IQ person.

Of course, Candace is right and Maxine would NEVER agree to an IQ test.

What is funny is the Democrats insist pointing out Maxine’s low IQ is racist.
How does Candace Owens fit in that argument?

Mad Maxine Waters Gets President Trump’s Financial Records From Wells Fargo and TD Bank

GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 02:56


Maxine Waters

Congresswoman Mad Maxine Waters has already obtained President Trump’s financial documents from Wells Fargo and TD Bank.

NBC News reported that two out of nine financial institutions have already complied with subpoenas issued by the House Financial Services and handed over thousands of documents to the Committee.

Wells Fargo and TD Bank are the two of nine institutions that have so far complied with subpoenas issued by the House Financial Services Committee demanding information about their dealings with the Trump Organization, according to the sources. The disclosures by these two banks haven’t been previously reported. Both TD Bank and Wells Fargo declined to comment for this story.

Wells Fargo provided the committee with a few thousand documents and TD Bank handed the committee a handful of documents, according to a source who has seen them. The committee, led by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is especially interested in the president’s business relationship with Russia and other foreign entities.

Maxine Waters said on MNSBC’s “Hardball” on Wednesday, “we don’t have information to share with you at this time about what we’ve learned from the documents.”

Rep. Maxine Waters also sent subpoenas to Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Canada and Toronto-Dominion Bank and JP Morgan Chase.

Earlier Wednesday Edgardo Ramos, Judge of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, an Obama appointee, ruled that Deutsche Bank and Capital One can turn over Trump’s financial documents to the House Democrats in response to a subpoena.

Democrat Adam Schiff, the leaker and head of the House Intelligence, and Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, subpoenaed the Trump Family bank records with Deutsche Bank in mid-April… because they can.

Just two days ago, another Obama judge ruled Trump’s former accounting firm Mazars USA had to comply with a congressional subpoena.

This is presidential harassment.

“The subpoenas issued to Deutsche Bank and Capital One by Chairpersons Schiff and Waters are unlawful and illegitimate,” Trump’s lawyers said in a statement last month. “They seek information going back decades from anyone with even a tangential connection to the President, including children, minors and spouses. Every citizen should be concerned about this sweeping, lawless, invasion of privacy. We look forward to vindicating our clients’ rights in this matter.”

President Trump is sick of the ‘phony investigations’ launched by the rabid Democrats and said he will not work with the lawmakers on an infrastructure deal until they stop harassing him with Soviet style investigations.

The Democrats are digging into every aspect of President Trump’s life searching for a crime.

Stalin would be proud.

DISGUSTING! Unhinged Democrat Lauren Underwood Accuses Border Guards of Intentionally Killing Children (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 02:31

Liberal Democrat Lauren Underwood represents Illinois’ 14th district in the US Congress.

Democrats called her the “Naperville nurse running for Congress.”

She even has campaign flyers of herself helping patients as a nurse.
Yet, Lauren NEVER practiced a day of nursing in her life!

Lauren ran as a moderate in a conservative district.
In reality she is an unhinged leftist.

On Wednesday Rep. Underwood accused US Border Guards of intentionally killing illegal alien children.

Rep. Lauren Underwood: At this point with five kids that have died, five thousand separated from their families, I feel like and the evidence is really clear that is intentional. It’s intentional. It’s a policy choice.

Every one of these children died because their parents dragged them through a cartel infested desert for several weeks.

How disgusting.

And she’s a moderate Democrat!

As Laura Ingraham said on Wednesday night: “She should be censured” for her outrageous accusations.

The Republican ranking member insisted and the chairman had Underwood’s outrageous statements stricken from the congressional record.

NEW: John Solomon Files Motion Asking FISA Court to Unseal Evidence of Wrongdoing in Russia Collusion Case

GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 00:45

Award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon filed a motion on Wednesday asking the FISA court to unseal evidence of wrongdoing or disciplinary actions in the Russia collusion case.

The Southeastern Legal Foundation released a statement on Wednesday.

Southeastern Legal Foundation filed a Motion for Publication of Records with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) on behalf of award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon and itself, seeking rulings, orders and opinions issued by the Court finding any of the attorneys associated with the Carter Page FISA applications violated rules of the Court or rules governing professional conduct by attorneys.

Southeastern Legal Foundation successfully pursued Bar sanctions against sitting President Bill Clinton, ultimately resulting in the surrender of his law license on the last day in office and disbarment by the U.S. Supreme Court (1998-2001) as part of the Agreed Order of Discipline from Independent Counsel Robert Ray. Click here for more information on the Clinton matter.

“We face a serious crisis of public confidence in our judicial system. Our nation’s highest law enforcement officers and government attorneys are suspected of lying, misleading and withholding information from the FISC in order to obtain permission to conduct surveillance on U.S. citizen Carter Page,” said Todd Young, SLF executive director. “If true, even in part, one of the most profound ways to help re-establish public trust in the rule of law is to hold these attorneys professionally and publicly accountable for their alleged grievous violations of the law and public trust.”

John Solomon has been working around the clock to obtain documents related to Spygate and has released one hard-hitting article after another exposing the Deep State cabal who targeted Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

The FBI obtained a FISA warrant and three renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page to spy on Trump and his transition team.

The first FISA warrant on Mr. Page was obtained in October of 2016 and the 4th and final warrant was granted in June of 2017.

Hillary Clinton’s phony Russia dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele formed an essential role in obtaining the FISA warrant on Page.

In fact, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said under oath, if not for the Russia dosser, the FBI would never have sought a FISA warrant on Page.

Thanks to John Solomon’s reporting, we now know that Steele and his phony claims were ‘red-flagged’ by State Department official Kathleen Kavalec 11 days before the first FISA warrant was granted on Carter Page.

Kavalec then sent the red flag warning to senior FBI official Stephen Laycock one week before the FISA warrant was obtained.

What did the FISA judges know? It’s time for more transparency on what the FISA judges knew and if they took any disciplinary actions.

Tonight, with the Southeastern Legal Foundation's help, I filed a motion asking the FISA court to unseal evidence of wrongdoing or disciplinary actions in the Russia collusion case. America will benefit if we can achieve some transparency. Here it is :https://t.co/37E3K68R17

Phyllis Schlafly Successor Ed Martin Calls on RNC to Censure #NeverTrump Rep. Justin Amash

GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 00:39

On Saturday Trump-hating GOP Rep. Justin Amash tweeted out that President Trump should be impeached.

In fact, Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.

— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 18, 2019

The RINO Republican likes to hurl attacks at the Republican president.

On Tuesday Ed Martin, the President of the Phyllis Schlafly Eagles, called on the RNC to censure Rep. Justin Amash.

"In reality, Rep. Amash’s statements spring from a deep rejection of the conservative principles President Trump staunchly defends. Something has to be done." -Ed Martin, Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. Read more on Breitbart: https://t.co/ZvpiK75lGO pic.twitter.com/Elc2WFzKar

Via The Phyllis Schlafly Eagles:

Washington, D.C.: Phyllis Schlafly’s successor Ed Martin sent the following letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel:

Dear Chairman McDaniel,

As a former Missouri Republican Party chairman, I know very well the power of the party’s collective voice. We establish principles to guide our voice every four years at the Republican National Convention. President Reagan taught us to aspire to “a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people.” In 2016, I believe we adopted just such a banner in the Republican Party Platform. I was there when then-candidate Trump promised the late Phyllis Schlafly to uphold the platform. Any reasonable Republican would conclude that our president has kept his word.

Yet, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan has chosen to undermine President Trump with his ludicrous comments. Using the megaphone of social media, Amash spread the Democrat lie that “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.” He went on to attack the honor of his Republican colleagues in Congress by saying “Few members of Congress even read Mueller’s report,” and insinuated conservatives defend our president blindly.

In reality, Rep. Amash’s statements spring from a deep rejection of the conservative principles President Trump staunchly defends. Something has to be done. We are the party Amash claims to stand with. It is our responsibility to let America know we wholeheartedly oppose his radical views. We must stand with our president and send a message even the thick-headed Rep. Amash can’t ignore.

It is for these reasons I respectfully request Rep. Justin Amash be officially censured by the RNC.

All the best.

EU President Jean-Claude Juncker Lashes Out on Eve of Elections: “These Stupid Nationalists – Are in Love with Their Own Countries”

GatewayPundit - Thu, 05/23/2019 - 00:14

EU President Jean-Claude Juncker lashed out at “Stupid Nationalists” on the eve of the European Union elections.

Juncker is the same guy who shows up drunk to ceremonies wearing different shoes that don’t match.

Juncker went off on nationalists today in a CNN interview saying, “These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries,” Juncker told CNN in his Brussels office.

This was a very revealing statement.
The globalists hate nationalists who “love their own country.”
And they wonder why the people are rejecting these tyrants?

Nevada Passes Bill to Give State’s Electoral College Votes to National Popular Vote Winner

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 18:30

The Communists Democrats are waging war on the Electoral College as part of their efforts to erode the US Constitution and ultimately leave federal elections in the hands of the elite coasts, California and New York.

The Nevada Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that would give the state’s Electoral College votes to the candidate who wins the popular vote.

The bill passed on a party-line vote 12-8 and the legislation was sent to Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak to be signed.

If the Governor signs the bill, Nevada will join the 14 other states along with the District of Columbia (3 EC votes) to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.

Here are the other states that have signed the the National Popular Vote into law:

The only way for this joint agreement to go into effect would be if enough states pass legislature to total the number of electoral votes to win a presidency – 270 EC votes and Nevada will bring the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact to 195.

Our Founding Fathers wanted to give a voice to middle America and less densely populated states so they came up with the best system to represent America, the Electoral College.

The Democrats hate middle America — they want (illegal aliens) California and the Cosmopolitan liberal elitists in New York to choose every US president going forward.

Donald Trump won the 2016 election with 304 electoral votes compared to 227 for Hillary Clinton — the media loves to brag that Hillary ‘won the popular (illegal alien) vote’ but the 2016 election showed the genius of the Electoral College because it filtered out the massive amounts of voter fraud and gave a voice to middle America.

The Deep State’s ‘Insurance Policy’ Was Obstruction – But President Trump Never Obstructed and Crushed Obama’s Deep State!

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 18:25

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Deep State players in the FBI left a clue of their plans when they called what they were doing an ‘Insurance Policy’.  Their plans were to catch President Trump obstructing their fraudulent investigation.  But the President outsmarted them and by not obstructing ended their soft coup!

As previously reported, a portion of the approximately 10,000 texts messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page were released in 2017. Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency.

The text from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page said this:

I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy’s office-that there’s no way he gets elected-but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.It’s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40.”

There has been much speculation as to what exactly the insurance policy was that Strzok and Page were discussing.  Some suspect that it was the fake dossier created by former MI6 Agent and Trump hater Christopher Steele that the FBI used to obtain the warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and administration via a Carter Page warrant.

Others suggest that the insurance policy may have been the Mueller investigation.  It may have been all of the above that were created to take the focus off of Obama’s crimes and the Deep State.

But what we believe is that the ‘insurance policy’ most likely was the attempt to frame the President and lure him into an obstruction charge.

This makes sense when you review the activities that led up to today.  For starters, Obama’s Deep State and its leaders in the FBI, DOJ, State Department and CIA were all working overtime to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on Trump.  Hillary Clinton was tied to the Uranium One scandal and she was also skating by after the bogus investigation into her emails.  Obama and Hillary had to do something so they decided to go on the attack and frame Donald Trump.

They started by spying on candidate Trump and his team.  They did this across Europe and in the United States.  They even spied on Trump in Trump Tower in New York City. But President Trump found this out and tweeted about it in the first months of his administration –

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017

Next the Deep State set in motion the most corrupt actions in US history.  They fed fake news to the media who gladly repeated it.  All of it was anti-Trump propaganda.  They leaked information to the press, some real and much fake, that added to the media’s Trump frenzy.

They used the US Intel apparatus to spy on the President and his team.  The next big move was to get the President’s Attorney General to recuse himself from just about everything and then encourage the DOJ to hire their corrupt guy to run the DOJ, Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy AG.  Rosenstein did a masterful job in redacting anything that Congress would ask for related to their coup, so much so that he was soon known as Rod Redactenstein.

Rosenstein’s major move though was to create the Mueller Special Counsel.  But what’s most telling is the manner in which they did this and nearly every criminal action that they took that followed.

Mueller and his team were as conflicted as any gang in US history.  They all were related to the Hillary campaign, gave money to her campaign or both.  These people were more conflicted than any group in history.  They should have never been put together.  This was part of the Deep State’s tactics, to make the team so incredibly conflicted that Trump would have to intervene, but he did not.

Mueller was conflicted as well.  He had a conflict with Trump in the past and the President suggested that he be replaced according to the Mueller report.  But Mueller was never replaced.

The investigation was not based on a crime, which is required by law.  The President had every right to fight the legitimacy of the investigation based on this or the fact that the scope of the investigation was broader than the law permits.  But the President did not take this to court.  The truth is the President could have argued the legitimacy of the investigation on numerous counts, but he did not.

The Mueller team obtained documents from the Trump team related to his transition.  This was in spite of the Trump team providing the Mueller investigation everything they asked for.  This was a material breach of trust and an act that questioned the Special Counsel’s legitimacy again.  The material used from this was arguably tainted (fruit from the poisonous tree) but Trump never took this to court.

The Mueller team questioned the President’s White House Council for hours.  This took could have been stopped by the President at any time claiming an executive privilege but he did not stop it.  The President never once claimed executive privilege throughout the entire ordeal.

They next went after the President’s personal attorney.  To hell with attorney – client privilege!  They raided his place in the early morning hours and took information that was used against the attorney for things not even closely related to the investigation.

The set up and indicted the President’s ally and friend General Mike Flynn.  They did the same with other individuals who worked with the President, some working for free like George Papadopoulos.

They brought crimes to the court for Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, the whole time ignoring that Manafort worked with Hillary’s Campaign Manager, John Podesta.  They ignored all of Hillary’s crimes.

They went after the President’s son, Don Jr, and set him up with some Russians during the campaign.  They held him for hours answering questions related to this set up.  They threatened indicting younger Don and the President did not obstruct!

Obama’s Deep State coup did all they could to encourage the President for obstruction, but instead of buying into their corrupt acts, and rightly stopping the fraudulent investigation, the President held tight.

The President did not obstruct.  Eventually President Trump replaced worthless and perhaps complicit Attorney General Sessions with a man able to stand up to the Deep State actors and it was soon over.

The insurance policy was the Deep State’s attempt to get the President on obstruction, in spite of the fact that there was no collusion.  The Deep State lost.  Now it’s time to review their actions and bring them to justice.  Drain the Swamp!

SHOCK POLL: Trump Surging in Florida; Tops Biden and Every Democrat in New Poll

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 18:09

President Donald Trump’s popularity in the key swing state of Florida is surging, pushing him to a lead over every Democrat vying to challenge him for reelection in 2020–including former Vice President Joe Biden–according to a new Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative poll released Wednesday. With 29 electoral college votes, Florida is a must win for Republicans and Democrats and was key to Trump’s 2016 victory.

Trump’s approval in the Sunshine State has jumped to 47 percent compared to 41 percent approval in the February FAU poll when Trump’s popularity was underwater. He is now above water with 44 percent disapproval, down from 46 percent disapproval in February.

In head to head match-ups with the top Democrat presidential contenders, Trump beats them all. Biden, who dominates the Democrat field with 39 percent support of primary voters, is the closest, well within the poll’s +/-3 percent margin of error but also out of the margin for victory in a state where elections are won by tenths of a percent out of millions of votes.

Trump leads Biden 50.2 to 49.8 percent, the same lead as the 0.4 percent margin of victory last November by Republican Ron DeSantis over Democrat Andrew Gillum for the Florida governorship.

Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Florida in 2016 49.02 percent to 47.82 percent.

Trump beats Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) 51.4 to 48.6 percent, the only other Democrat within the margin of error.

In contrast, in 2012 President Barack Obama beat Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Florida 50.01 percent to 49.13

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (IN) is the third ranked Democrat against Trump in the poll, with Trump beating him 51.7 percent to 48.3 percent.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) is fourth against Trump with Trump leading Warren 52.2 percent to 47.8 percent.

Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) placed fifth among Democrats against Trump with Trump ahead 52.7 percent to 47.3 percent.

Among Democrat voters, Biden is well ahead of all contenders at 39.2 percent with Warren at 11.9 percent, Sanders at 11.6, Buttigieg at 8.8, Harris at 6.7, former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) at 4.9, former Obama HUD Sec. Julian Castro (TX) at 1.8 and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) at 1.4 percent. Every other Democrat candidate polled below one percent.

The poll also shows no desire by Florida Republicans for a primary challenge against Trump. Trump crushes hypothetical challengers 84.6 percent to 5.0 percent for Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), former Ohio Governor John Kasich at 2.4 percent, former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld at 0.8 percent and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan at 0.3 percent. Weld is the only declared GOP challenger to Trump.

The FAU BEPI poll methodology: “The FAU BEPI Florida poll was conducted May 16-19, 2019. The sample consisted of registered voters, n=1,007, the poll’s margin of error (MOE) of +/- 3 percentage points. The data was weighted by ethnicity, age, education, party affiliation, region and gender based on a 2016 voter model. It is important to remember that subsets carry with them higher margins of error, as the sample size is reduced. Data was collected using both an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system of landlines (n=604) and an online panel provided by Dynata (n=403).”

BREAKING: ‘Should I Bomb Trump Tower?’ — NJ Man Arrested After Threats

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 17:53

A New Jersey man was arrested Wednesday after threatening to “shoot everybody” at a pro-Israel march and bomb Trump Tower in New York.

Jonathan Xie, 20, has been also been charged with attempting to provide support to a terrorist organization after allegedly sending money to Hamas militants.

Jonathan Xie (allegedly) used Instagram to send an undercover FBI employee step-by-step instructions on donating to Hamas. https://t.co/QG9xDk1EcC pic.twitter.com/5DKuqzrE88

— Ryan J. Reilly (@ryanjreilly) May 22, 2019

 Federal authorities say Xie had social media accounts filled with terror propaganda. The FBI said Xie had also declared support for former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein, Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, and North Korea.

“In April, Xie allegedly appeared in an Instagram Live video in which he said he was against Zionism and the neo-liberal establishment,” ABC-30 reported. “In the same video he displayed a Hamas flag, retrieved a handgun and stated ‘I’m gonna go to the [expletive] pro-Israel march and I’m going to shoot everybody.’ “

In another Instagram post quoted in court documents, Xie said, “I want to shoot the pro-Israel demonstrators…you can get a gun and shoot your way through or use a vehicle and ram people… all you need is a gun or a vehicle to go on a rampage.”

FBI surveillance observed Xie outside of the Trump Tower building in New York City around April 20 of this year. Shortly thereafter, Xie posted two photos to his Instagram account, according to Instagram records.

One photo had the words “I want to bomb Trump Tower” imposed over the building image, and the other photo had the words “[S]hould I bomb Trump Tower,” a “Yes/No” poll, and an emoji of a bomb imposed over an image of the Trump Tower building.

Xie subsequently posted on Instagram, “Okay, so I went to NYC today and passed by Trump Tower and then I started laughing hysterically…I forgot to visit the Israeli embassy in NYC…i want to bomb this place along with trump tower.”

Xie allegedly said he wanted to join “to learn how to kill … so I can use that knowledge” and “Idk if I pass the training … If I should do lone wolf,” NBC-4 reported.

According to a criminal complaint, Xie lied in an effort to enlist in the U.S. Army for training earlier this year. Prosecutors say he went as far as completing a Security Clearance Application for National Security Positions in February and answered “no” to the question “Have you ever associated with anyone involved in activities to further terrorism.” An error occurred in the application processing and he had to do it again 10 days later. Again, he answered no to that question.

Xie also appeared in an Instagram Live video in April wearing a black ski mask and saying he would “find a way” to go join Hamas.

Federal officials said Xie was a clear and present danger.

“Homegrown violent extremists like Xie are a serious threat to national security,” U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said in a statement. “The actions that he took and planned to take made that threat both clear and present, and we commend our law enforcement partners for working closely with us to stop him before he could carry out his plans to commit violence on American soil. We will continue to do everything in our power to safeguard our country and its citizens from the threat of terrorism, whether that threat comes from abroad or – as here – from within.”

“The FBI remains vigilant in its efforts to protect the public from those who support terrorist groups and ideologies,” FBI-Newark Special Agent in Charge Gregory Ehrie said. “Thanks to the hard work and determination of our agents and their law enforcement partners on the Joint Terrorism Task Force, this defendant’s further support to terrorism was disrupted and a threat to the safety of our community was averted. This case also illustrates the value of public awareness and participation. When you report suspicious activity, you become a force multiplier in the mission to keep America safe.”

Probe Can’t Conclude Ralph Northam Was In Racist Yearbook Photo He Admitted Being In

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 17:35

When a photo surfaced in February purportedly showing Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam either in blackface or wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe, the Democrat said:  “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now. … That photo and the racist and offensive attitudes it represents does not reflect that person I am today. … I am deeply sorry.”

But the next day, Northam said he’d searched his memory banks and realized he wasn’t actually in the photo. Poof, just like that, the story disappeared.

Now, a months-long probe into whether Northam was actually in the picture has ended with no conclusion.

“With respect to the photograph on Governor Northam’s personal page, we could not conclusively determine the identity of either individual depicted in the Photograph,” according to a final report from the Richmond, Va., law firm of McQuireWoods, which was hired by Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) to probe the matter. The report also found “no information that the photograph was placed on [Northam’s] personal page in error” and also could not “conclusively determine the origin of the photograph.”

Northam attended EVMS and graduated in 1984 with an M.D. degree.

“McGuireWoods contacted over 80 people connected to EVMS and interviewed 30 people connected to EVMS as part of its investigation, including five members of the yearbook staff. Investigators also interviewed Northam and members of his staff,” The Daily Progress reported.

The report looked into Northam’s statements immediately following the publication of the photograph in news outlets, including the admission that he was in the photo and that he had never seen the yearbook page.

Investigators interviewed one witness, who they did not name, that rebutted Northam’s statement that he had not seen the photo.

“One unidentified witness has reported to us that he recalls reviewing the governor’s personal yearbook page with the governor in 1984,” the report says, adding that the witness “did not think the Governor was personally depicted in the Photograph.”

Northam denied that the meeting ever happened.

The Virginian-Pilot also reported that the report released Wednesday found “two EVMS presidents, including current president Richard Homan, were told about the racist photo while Northam was running for political offices and decided not to make it public.”

“We understand President Homan’s reasoning was EVMS should not become involved, or be seen to become involved, in an election as it is a public body and a public institution, and that EVMS did not not want there to be any suggestion that it had tried to influence Governor Northam in any respect by calling the photograph to his attention,” the document says, according to the Pilot.

Northam was interviewed twice by the law firm and said he was “positive” he’s not in the racist photo but didn’t know who is.

“He just wants to exonerate himself, but doesn’t want to throw anyone under the bus,” the report says.

Northam told the investigators he was “very slender” in college and medical school and that the legs on the person in blackface are “much thicker than his.” He said the person in the KKK robes was “much shorter” than him and that he would’ve remembered standing next to someone in those robes or dressing up in the robes himself.

For the record, Northam’s nickname listed in the yearbook at Virginia Military Institute yearbook, which he also attended, was “Coonman.”

But because he’s a Democrat, it’s all OK. Nothing to see here, people.

James O’Keefe WINS Again As Judge Dismisses Frivolous Lawsuit Against Project Veritas

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas Action are now 6-0 as defendants in civil court, as a federal judge has dismissed the lawsuit filed against them by Shirley Teter. Teter was claiming that she had been defamed in one of the Project Veritas Action videos after anti-Trump protest organizer Scott Foval explained that she was a plant sent into Trump events.

The video was part of the Foval and Bob Creamer investigation. Her story appears at the 12:50 mark in this video:

O’Keefe’s attorney, Jamie Dean, successfully argued that Teter’s claim did not prove malice on the part of O’Keefe and Project Veritas Action, and thus the videos portrayed the subjects accurately.

O’Keefe then proceeded to call out mainstream media that mis-characterized the situation:

As fellow journalists you must agree that the federal judge throwing the case out this morning – and our stirring defense of the 1st amendment – is more newsworthy than the filing of trumped-up claims against us. WILL YOU FOLLOW UP? https://t.co/jQSWZDFn7f

— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) May 22, 2019

The judge just threw the case out, ruling that the plaintiff did not have the requisite evidence to support her defamation claim. Therefore the judgement is entered in favor of Project Veritas. WILL YOU FOLLOW UP? Or will you only report on the bogus trumped-up civil claims? https://t.co/XlWi1tPwwF

Schumer Left Slack-Jawed After Trump Abruptly Walks Out of Meeting ‘What Happened in the White House Would Make Your Jaw Drop’ (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 16:54

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was triggered after President Trump abruptly walked out of a meeting Wednesday morning and refused to talk about infrastructure.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Speaker Pelosi accused President Trump of a “cover-up” — and Trump wasn’t having it.

President Trump walked out of the meeting and held an impromptu presser in the Rose Garden at the White House.

“I told Senator Schumer, Speaker Pelosi: I want to do infrastructure…But you know what? You can’t do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with.” Trump said in a presser Wednesday.

Cryin Schumer was triggered and said what happened in the White House would make your jaw drop. Good!

“To watch what happened in the white house would make your jaw drop. … There were investigations going on three weeks ago when we met. And he still met with us. But now that he was forced to actually say how he would pay for it, he had to run away. … It’s clear that this was not a spontaneous move on the president’s part. It was planned.”

President Trump left Schumer slack-jawed and Pelosi short-circuiting and stuttering which means he is doing something right.

Good for President Trump. These people are wicked.

Trump Tax Returns: Mnuchin Holds His Ground as Dem Lawmaker Grills Him About Confidential Draft IRS Memo Leaked to WaPo (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 15:30

Steve Mnuchin said on Wednesday that the Treasury is looking into who penned and leaked the confidential draft IRS memo that found Trump must provide his tax returns to Congress unless executive privilege is asserted. 

A confidential IRS draft memo that was leaked to the Washington Post and published Tuesday evening, says President Trump must turn over his tax documents to Congress… unless he invokes executive privilege.

A copy of the 10-page memo, which was obtained by the Washington Post, says the disclosure of tax returns to the committee “is mandatory, requiring the Secretary to disclose returns, and return information, requested by the tax-writing Chairs.”

The memo was reportedly penned by a lawyer in the Office of Chief Counsel several months ago and did not represent the agency’s “official position.”

The mystery memo is stamped “DRAFT,” does not reference Trump and it wasn’t even signed, but as expected, the Democrats are using it to argue against the DOJ’s and Mnuchin’s stance against handing Trump’s tax returns over to Congress.

Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) grilled Mnuchin about the IRS memo that was probably penned by an Obama holdover with the intent to stir up trouble.

Mnuchin held his ground and repeatedly reminded the Democrat lawmaker that there are three separate branches of government.

At one point Mnuchin actually told Rep. Wexton that she had interpreted the memo incorrectly. OUCH.

“We’re trying to find out who wrote the memo, where it came from, when it was and why it wasn’t distributed,” Mnuchin added.

Fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Meets Privately with House Committee to Talk About Russia

GatewayPundit - Wed, 05/22/2019 - 14:44

Fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson slipped into Washington DC to meet privately with House Foreign Affairs Committee leaders on Tuesday.

Tillerson was fired in March 2018.

Tillerson reportedly spoke to House committee leaders about Russia.
It never ends with these clowns.

Talking Points Memo reported:

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson quietly slipped into the Capitol Tuesday to talk to the House Foreign Affairs Committee about the Trump administration’s interactions with Russia.

According to the Daily Beast, Tillerson arrived under a shroud of secrecy, with almost no media warning and a back entrance to the building.

During a six-hour hearing, Tillerson told the committee about how the administration actively avoided confronting Russia on their election interference in the name of establishing a rapport with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He also said that senior White House adviser Jared Kushner often undermined his attempts to brief the President on State Department policy proposals.
