In The News / Finally: Criminal investigation
« on: October 24, 2019, 09:34:46 PM »
Justice Department review into origins of Russia probe turns into criminal investigation.

A probe by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has changed from an administrative review into a criminal investigation, a person familiar with the review confirmed to NBC News.

The review is being conducted by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham. The New York Times first reported Thursday that the administrative review has turned into a criminal investigation.

It’s not clear when the change occurred, but the probe began in May as an administrative review.

The Times reported that the change in status gives Durham the power to subpoena witness testimony and documents, to impanel a grand jury and to file criminal charges.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly called the Russia investigation conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller a “witch hunt.”

Republicans have suggested the investigation stemmed from a plot by members of the Obama Administration and career intelligence officials, in what they call the "Deep State," to undermine Trump.

In The News / Joe Biden: 'I want to be clear, I'm not going nuts'
« on: August 26, 2019, 09:37:08 PM »
Put a fork in sleepy, creepy uncle joe.
He is done.
Sadly joe has lost his mind.
And the primary.

Democratic front-runner Joe Biden and his camp should be very worried about his presidential chances, political operatives say, citing his almost-daily gaffes while on the campaign trail — including during a New Hampshire stop over the weekend when the former vice president said he was in Vermont.

"It’s a cause for concern if you’re running for president, especially if you’re not sure what state you’re in,” said Phil Johnston, the Massachusetts Democratic Party’s former chairman. “We all love and respect him, but in 2020 we have to make sure the nominee is up the task of taking on President Trump.”

The 76-year-old presidential candidate looking to attract voters in the first-in-the-nation primary state Saturday said he was in the bordering state.

Biden in Keene, N.H., said, “I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? And what a neat town … everybody has been really friendly. I like Keene a lot.”

This comment came a day after he spoke in Hanover, N.H., about the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.

“Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee? What would have happened in America?”

Biden must immediately stop making these gaffes, Johnston said.

“He needs to show he’s up to the task of being president, day-in and day-out for the next 14 months,” said Johnston, who said he’s leaning toward supporting U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the primary. “If he continues to make these mistakes, many people will be concerned.”

Biden has not slipped in the polls despite the near-daily slip of the tongue, said pollster John Zogby.

“But if they (gaffes) continue, and they probably will continue, it may ultimately matter to the public,” Zogby added.

In a hypothetical Biden versus Trump matchup, they could end up “neutralizing each other” because of the amount of gaffes the president makes, Zogby said.

“What he has to be careful of now is that people don’t think these gaffes reflect a problem of his mental acuity. Now questions are being raised is because he’s older,” said Boston University professor Tobe Berkowitz, a veteran of Democratic political campaigns,  adding that the other Dem hopefuls will continue to pound on this line of attack, especially behind the scenes. “His political opponents are probably dropping a lot of dimes on this.”

The consistency of Biden’s gaffes should definitely be concerning for Democrats, said N.H. state Rep. Fred Doucette, who was a state co-chair for Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Biden Bizarrely Says There’s Three Genders, Then Grabs Young Female Questioner By The Arm And Insists He Loves Gay People

“Mr. Vice President, I’m a student here and I’m wondering, how many genders are there?” the female questioner, later identified as a Turning Point USA field staffer named Katie, said.

“Pardon me?” asked Biden.

“How many genders are there?” Katie repeated.

“There are at least three,” Biden responded.

“What are they?” asked Katie.

“Don’t play games with me kid,” said Biden as he walked away. But a few seconds later he turned around, grabbed her arm, and said, “By the way, first one to come out for [gay] marriage was me.”

My name is Katie. I am born and raised in Iowa, and I’m currently a student in Iowa. Today I showed up at the state fair to ask former Vice President Joe Biden a question about gender. When I asked the question it took a few seconds for the question to register, and then he responded with ‘three.’ I asked a follow-up question. I asked, ‘Okay, what are they?’ Joe Biden looked at me and said, ‘Don’t mess with me, kid.’ I started to walk away, and then it doesn’t stop there. He grabs my arm and then pulls me back to make eye contact with him again and he yells something about marriage at me. So I walked away and was mad, just very very mad that someone would actually treat me like that.'m

Biden's gaffes pile up, worrying some supporters

Let's be honest folks. Biden is senile.
Joe should never be allowed to become potus.

Joe Biden’s string of gaffes is raising questions among Democrats about his ability to beat President Trump in 2020.

Biden made headlines three times in the last week by misspeaking.

Over the weekend he mistakenly said he had met as vice president with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

“Those kids in Parkland came to see me when I was vice president,” he told reporters in Iowa.

The Parkland school was attacked by a mass shooter and many of the students were turned into gun control activists in an incident in 2018 — more than a year after Biden’s vice presidency ended.

That blunder followed another two days earlier when Biden, 76, told an audience of Asian and Hispanic voters that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

Biden later told reporters he botched the comment he's delivered many times and meant to say “wealthy kids.”

“On the spot, I explained it,” he said. “At that very second, I explained it. And so the fact of the matter is that I don't think anybody thinks that I meant anything other than what I meant.”

Earlier that day, Biden also declared in a speech at the Iowa State Fair, “We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts.

While Biden has always been known for verbal slip-ups, the recent mistakes are also coming at a time when he is facing questions about his age.

They also have given openings to President Trump, who last week said his potential rival wasn’t playing with a “full deck.”

Trump over the weekend took to Twitter to dig in further.

“Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president?” Trump wrote. “We are ‘playing’ in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue.”

In The News / Coming for COMEY

James Comey's next reckoning is imminent — this time for leaking
The Justice Department’s chief watchdog is preparing a damning report on James Comey’s conduct in his final days as FBI director that likely will conclude he leaked classified information and showed a lack of candor after his own agency began looking into his feud with President Trump over the Russia probe.

Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz’s team referred Comey for possible prosecution under the classified information protection laws, but Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors working for Attorney General William Barr reportedly have decided to decline prosecution — a decision that’s likely to upset Comey's conservative critics.

Prosecutors found the IG’s findings compelling but decided not to bring charges because they did not believe they had enough evidence of Comey’s intent to violate the law, according to multiple sources.

But Comey and others inside the FBI and the DOJ during his tenure still face legal jeopardy in ongoing probes by the IG and Barr-appointed special prosecutor John Durham. Those investigations are focused on the origins of the Russia investigation that included a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant targeting the Trump campaign at the end of the 2016 election, the source said.

“There are significant issues emerging with how the FISA was handled and other conduct in the investigation, and everyone involved remains under scrutiny,” a second source said.

This woman is very, very dangerous to the USA
She is dumber than a box of crushed rock.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said she was in favor of abolishing the Department of Homeland Security this week.

In an interview with New York Radio's David Remnick, the Democratic firebrand called the DHS an “egregious mistake.”

Ocasio-Cortez made the comment in reference to her previous calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

"ICE is not under DOJ, it's under the Department of Homeland Security and so we have now —" Ocasio-Cortez said.

"Would you get rid of Homeland Security too?" Remnick asked.

"I think so," Ocasio-Cortez responded. "I think so." (The Daily Wire)

DHS was created in the aftermath of 9/11 and is designed to prevent terrorist attacks and respond to threats against Americans.

According to The Daily Wire:

Eliminating DHS would bring an end to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), United States Coast Guard (USCG), United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), United States Secret Service (USSS), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Management Directorate, Science and Technology Directorate, Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office, Office of Intelligence and Analysis, and the Office of Operations Coordination.

DHS deals mainly with counterterrorism operations, border security, immigration law, cybersecurity, and disaster relief. Their annual budget is over $45 million.

Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher found not guilty on murder and attempted murder charges

A jury found decorated Navy SEAL Edward "Eddie" Gallagher not guilty Tuesday on almost all charges he was facing, including murder and attempted murder, in the killing of a teenage Islamic State member in Iraq.

Gallagher was accused of stabbing to death a 15-year-old ISIS fighter in 2017 and posing with the corpse for photos.

As he awaited the charges to be read, Gallagher, 40, bounced lightly on his feet, appearing nervous, but dissolved into joyful tears once the verdict came through, tightly embracing his wife, Andrea, who has publicly championed him throughout the case as they both cried. Also seated in the gallery were Gallagher's attorneys, brother and parents, all of whom he exchanged hugs.

"Suffice to say, huge victory, huge weight off the Gallaghers, huge victory for justice," Gallagher's attorney Marc Mukasey said after the verdict, adding that his client cried "tears of joy, emotion, freedom, absolute euphoria and proud of the process."

Barr Assigns U.S. Attorney in Connecticut to Review Origins of Russia Inquiry

Attorney General William Barr has reportedly assigned a federal prosecutor in Connecticut to examine the origins of the investigation into Russian election interference and alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

The New York Times, citing two people familiar with the matter, reported on Monday night that John H. Durham, U.S. attorney in Connecticut, had been tapped by Barr to look into the probe's inception. The newspaper reported the inquiry is the third publicly known investigation focused on the FBI's counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaign.

DOJ inspector general Michael E. Horowitz is reviewing how investigators used wiretap applications and informants, as well as whether political bias motivated decision making.

John W. Huber, the United States attorney in Utah, is also examining aspects of the investigation.

A spokesman for Durham's office and the Department of Justice (DOJ) declined a request for comment from The Times. DOJ did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Durham was nominated by Trump in 2017 and has served as a lawyer within the Justice Department for nearly 40 years, according to The Times. He has a history of performing special investigations.

Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey assigned Durham to conduct a probe of the Central Intelligence Agency in 2008 over the agency destroying videotapes that showed terrorism suspects being tortured.

Bloomberg News reported in April that Barr had formed a team to review the actions of the Justice Department and FBI leading up to the Russia investigation. He told Congress around that time that he was reviewing" the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016."

He also testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee that he believed "spying" took place.

"But the question is whether it was adequately predicated and I'm not suggesting it wasn't adequately predicated, but I need to explore that," he said.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said last week that he wouldn't use "spying" to describe lawful investigative activities taken up by the FBI.

Durham's new assignment comes just weeks after the Justice Department released special counsel Robert Mueller's report, which detailed the findings of his 22-month investigation into President Trump.

Mueller's investigation did not uncover evidence to conclude that a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow took place. But the report noted that Mueller could not come to a conclusive determination in regards to whether the president obstructed justice.

UPDATED 9:06 p.m.

Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders revealed on Monday that he believes all Americans over the age of 18 should be given the right to vote, which includes violent felons such as terrorists and rapists on death row.

Ok. folks, let's review what the far left democrat presidential
candidates and many liberals want to implement if they
win the White House.

Let all convicted felons in prison vote.

The green new deal costing roughly $93 trillion.

Medicare for all. Cost about $25 to $35 trillion.

Free college. $47 billion a year.

Let 16 year olds vote.

Abolish I.C.E.

Protect sanctuary cities.

Open borders. Beto wants to tear down our
existing walls we have.
Reparations. Cost unknown along with determining
who is authorized to receive the reparations.

Gun control. Kamala Harris will take "executive " action on
gun control if congress can't pass new legislation.

Eliminate the electoral college.

I believe these are the most disturbing plans of
the radical left presidential candidates and the
democrat party itself  have, to totally change
the United States for the worse, forever.

I am sure there are plenty more crazy destructive
plans the radical left liberals have to destroy
our great country.
