Exclusive–Mo Brooks: ‘Democrat Strategy’ of Importing Foreign Voters will Turn America into California

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) says the “Democrat strategy” of importing a permanent underclass of welfare-dependent foreign-born voters will transform the United States into the left wing, sanctuary state of California.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Saturday, Brooks said the Democrats’ open borders, mass immigration plan is ultimately to replace native-born American voters with a foreign-born population.

WHOA! House Dems Move to Strip States of Election Powers, push a bill to Federalize Much of what the Constitution Set up as state Rights!!

If at first you don’t succeed, change the rules of the game so that you can. This has been the modus operandi of the Democrat Party for a long time, and Dems are again putting it to work with their new House majority.

HR 1, the first bill to be introduced in the new session, has been euphemistically called the For the People Act. Its full title is, get this, “To expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and for other purposes.”

This so-called voter-reform bill was introduced by Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD), and Democrats are hoping to use it to fundamentally change (there’s that phrase again) America’s voting and campaign-finance system.

How does it work? Spoiler alert — it’s totally rigged to tip the scales in favor of a putting a leftist government in permanent power in the U.S.

Federal Judge Orders Rhodes, Rice, & Other Obama Officials To Respond Over Clinton Benghazi/Email Scandal

In what Judicial Watch describes as a "major victory for accountability," a federal judge ruled Tuesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice and former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes must answer written questions about the State Department's response to the deadly 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, as part of an ongoing legal battle over whether Hillary Clinton sought to deliberately evade public record laws by using a private email server while secretary of state.

As Fox News' Samuel Chamberlain reports, the judge's order amounts to approval of a discovery plan he ordered last month. In that ruling, Lamberth wrote that Clinton's use of a private email account was "one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency" and said the response of the State and Justice Departments "smacks of outrageous misconduct."

A Chance for a New US Congress to Rethink Knee-Jerk Support for Israel

On January 3, 2019, the winds of youth and change were evident in the halls of the U.S. House of Representatives and more particularly in the offices of some of the newly elected members. By 9 a.m. Representative Rashida Tlaib, dressed in her traditional Palestinian thobe, was already standing for pictures and a large crowd was standing in line for a photo op. Palestinians from across the U.S. came to celebrate the first Palestinian-American to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

The office of Ilhan Omar too was filled with young people. Many were of Somali heritage and many of other diverse backgrounds who came to celebrate not only the first Somali-American elected to the U.S. House of Representatives but a new kind of politician, one that clearly cares about issues that touch those in need. Both Tlaib and Omar are progressive Democrats who came out publicly in support of the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions, or BDS, against the state of Israel.

Now More Than Ever, It’s Clear the FBI Must Go

The New York Times reports that “[i]n the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as FBI director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.”

That’s an interesting way of putting it, but let’s try another:

Enraged at the firing of their director, and suspecting the firing might portend a threat to their place and power in the American political establishment, FBI officials went to war with the president of the United States. They redirected taxpayer money and government resources away from anything resembling a legitimate law enforcement mission, putting themselves instead to the task of drumming up a specious case that said president is an agent of a foreign power.

Benefiting Israel Tops Congressional Agenda

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu famously was unaware that he was being filmed when he commented that “America is a thing you can move very easily, moved in the right direction.” His predecessor Ariel Sharon was even more to the point when he reportedly said “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that …don’t worry about American pressure; I tell you, we, the Jewish people, control America and the American people know it!”

From Baghdad to Finland and All Across the World: What’s the US Up To?

Situated across the street from the main entrance of Malmi Airport, the warehouse with its 3 meter high security fence appears an unlikely location for official embassy business. Neighbouring companies include a car yard and a tyre warehouse.

Helsinki Times visited the perimeters this weekend. Security personnel, young Finns in uniforms with American flags on their arms, appeared nervous and suspicious when asked to comment on the warehouse and refused to even confirm the order of the new fence structure which now surrounds the compound. At one point a security guard appeared in a second floor window to carefully monitor this reporter’s movements along Takoraudantie.

Upskirting is set to become a criminal offence in spring with perverts who film up women's skirts facing up to two years in prison as new law passes final legal hurdle

Taking pictures up a woman's skirt is set to become a criminal offence in the spring - with perverts found guilty of doing so facing up to two years in prison.
Upskirting often sees perpetrators taking photographs or videos of a victim's groin area from under their clothing, often without that person's knowledge.
A new law which bans 'upskirting' passed its final legal hurdle today when it received its third reading in the Upper Chamber of the House of Lords.

Anonymous, Pirates and Activists Challenge Articles 11, 12a, 13 With Stop ACTA 2 Protests January 19th Across Europe

By Aaron Kesel

The European Union is attempting to censor the Internet with several new initiatives called Article 11, 12a, and 13 while numerous other Articles are pending to be drafted that could affect your Internet freedom rights.

These Articles will have legal implications that will break the Internet as we know it. Not only will they include an “upload filter” if passed to block copyrighted (or unwanted) content from being uploaded on the Internet, it will also be impossible to link to source material, including educational content and even memes...

Economic Controls Turn Regular People Into Criminals

By Jeffrey A. Tucker

Part of the underlying drama of the show The Americans is that we know how it ends up. The glorious communist utopia of the Soviet Union, to which the main protagonists have devoted their lives as undercover spies, goes belly up at the end. Which is to say: they seem to be wasting their lives on a lost cause. The viewer knows this going in. The characters do not. They continue to believe they are working for the great cause.

You can summarize every domestic economic policy of Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution through 1991 as an attempt to salvage the unsalvageable. The attempt began in 1922 with the New Economic Policy, an expedient to save lives following the disastrous wartime socialism. It continued all the way through Nikita Khrushchev’s attempt to create a pricing system for planned markets. Even Mikhail Gorbachev’s reforms were intended to save the system from itself....

“Disgraced Partisan Hack”: White House Bashes James Comey After New Report

In remarks to the media on Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders bashed former FBI Director James Comey as a “disgraced partisan hack,” and said that former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was a “known liar.”

The comments came in the aftermath of a New York Times report that says President Trump came under FBI investigation after Comey’s firing, with Bureau leaders suspecting that he was under the influence of the Kremlin.

President Trump himself condemned the former FBI leaders on Twitter.

Canada Welcomes Al-Qaeda from Syria

Justin Trudeau invited 16 families of Al-Qaeda terrorists into Canada via Israel shortly after the U.S pulled funding for ISIS terrorist proxies on the Golan Border; The relocation was an overt response by Netanyahu over loss of this support from its main ally in the region. 10 more families are awaiting relocation. This occurred mere weeks after the White Helmates had kidnapped 44 Syrian children in preparation for another botched chemical false flag attack, according to the Syrian Foreign Ministry. Absolute treason.

Petition to declare George Soros a terrorist reaches threshold for White House response

A petition calling for President Trump to declare liberal billionaire George Soros a terrorist and seize the assets of organizations tied to him has reached the threshold that requires a response from the White House.

The petition, which needed 100,000 signatures by Sept. 19, had almost 140,000 signatures as of Tuesday morning.

"Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens … The US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists, and have all of his personal an organizational wealth and assets seized under Civil Asset Forfeiture law," the petition by E.B. reads.

Soros, who donated millions to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, said in January that Trump "is going to fail as president."

Welcome To The 'Wile E Coyote' Phase Of American History

Hunting For Golem

As another president once remarked in a different context - LBJ speaking to a hanger full of grunts in Vietnam - “go on out there, boys, and nail that coonskin to the wall!” That was around the time the war was looking like a lost cause, with 1000 soldiers a month coming home in a box and even the Rotarians of Keokuk, Iowa, starting to doubt the official story of what exactly we thought we were doing over there. It was also, arguably, around the time America stopped being, ahem, “great” and commenced the long, nauseating slide into idiocracy and collapse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the most intensely horrific examples of mis-use of office by the DOD, FBI, and those culpable in the Democratic Party, that I have ever seen in my lifetime; it is an absolute travesty of justice, and they have just lost any shred of respect they might have had left with the American people.

Mueller Has To Answer For One Lie That Could Land Obama’s Entire Deep State In Jail

Times’ reporters Adam Goldman and Michael Schmidt reported that FBI leadership panicked over Trump claiming in an NBC interview that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation and some of Trump’s foreign policy actions.

But this story flies in the face of previous reporting from last April which revealed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told Trump’s legal team that the President was not the target of the Mueller probe.

The FBI opened the counterintelligence investigation into the President after Comey was fired in early May.

By May 17 – just days after Comey’s termination – Mueller was appointed special counsel.

Many experts believe Mueller absorbed the counterintelligence investigation into his probe.

Destroying, suppressing evidence is FBI standard procedure

Congressional investigators were rocked this weekend when the FBI notified them that five months of text messages from a top FBI investigator into the Trump campaign’s Russian connections had mysteriously vanished.

The FBI-issued cell phone of Peter Strzok, whose previous texts to his mistress (also an FBI employee) showed fierce hostility to Trump, suddenly had problems due to “software upgrades” and other issues — and voila — all the messages between the two from Dec. 14, 2016, to May 17, 2017 vanished. Strzok, who oversaw the Trump investigation from its start in July 2016, was removed from Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation last summer after the Justice Department Inspector General discovered his anti-Trump texts.

9/11 On Trial

Over the past 17+ years a great many people who have closely examined the events of September 11, 2001, have concluded that the official government story we were presented with simply cannot be true. Included amongst these people are thousands of architects and engineers, university professors, first responders, pilots, and many others. Despite the eminence of many of these authorities, the mainstream media – when not affording them the all-too-predictable silent treatment – continues to calumniate these learned individuals and cast them as ‘crackpot conspiracy theorists’ occupying the outter fringes of our society. All of that seems however.

CNN Hit Piece Shows Senior Democrats Are Really Miffed At Tulsi Gabbard

She went after a clutch of Democrat Senators (Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris, and fellow Hawaiian Mazie Hirono) over their creation of an actual religious test for federal court nominees: that is, if they are observant Catholics they are disqualified. This caused some of them to call foul:

Demonized : In Politics It Seems Only Firearm Suicides Are Bad

Blaming guns (and gun owners) may be convenient for those with an agenda, but the awful truth is 4.5 times as many people hang or poison themselves every year as end their lives with a bullet. -- Why will nobody talk about those tragic losses of life? Or is suicide only bad when a gun is used?

Playing politics with suicide rates is morally appalling, yet that’s precisely what our government, media outlets and anti-gun groups do when they claim statistics “prove” Canada’s “gun control” scheme saves lives.

The Nuclear Option: Democrats Using Federal Workers as Human Shields to Keep Border Open

Rarely in modern politics have the battle lines been so clearly marked between two political camps.

According to Democrats: Thousands of undocumented foreigners storming the border and throwing rocks at Border Patrol; millions of aliens living in the United States illegally; criminal aliens violently attacking, raping and murdering Americans … it’s all a “manufactured crisis.”

According to President Trump: The lawlessness at the border is a real “humanitarian and security crisis.” It is a “crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul.”

FBI opened probe into whether Trump working for Russians: report

The Federal Bureau of Investigation opened an inquiry in 2017 into whether US President Donald Trump was working on behalf of Russia, The New York Times reported on Friday.

The investigation -- a dual counterintelligence and criminal probe -- was launched after the president fired FBI director James Comey in May 2017, the Times said, citing anonymous sources.

The counterintelligence aspect consisted of determining whether Trump was knowingly or unknowingly working for Moscow and whether he was a threat to national security, the newspaper reported.

It added the criminal portion related to Trump's firing of Comey.

The FBI investigation was soon folded into Robert Mueller's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 vote and possible collusion between his campaign and Moscow, it said, adding that it was unclear if the counterintelligence aspect was still being pursued.

Trump Goes On Epic Tweetstorm After NYT Reveals FBI "Witch Hunt" Escalation Following Comey Firing

President Trump on Saturday lashed out after a Friday evening report in the New York Times that US law enforcement officials "became so concerned by the president's behavior" in the days after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director, that "they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests."

According to the NYT, agents and senior F.B.I. officials "had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign" but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude.

What happened next? Well, a collusion narrative was born and carefully crafted as the paper explains:

House Foreign Affairs chairman says committee will hold hearings on Trump-Putin relationship

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) announced that the panel will hold hearings on President Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In a statement Saturday night that was repeated on Twitter Sunday morning, Engel made reference to what he called Trump’s “dark dealings” with “Putin and his cronies.”

“Every time Trump meets with Putin, the country is told nothing,” Engel said. “America deserves the truth and the Foreign Affairs Committee will seek to get to the bottom of it.”

House passes bill to force Trump to nominate “anti-semitism” head who would monitor criticism of Israel

On January 11th the U.S. House of Representatives voted 411-1 for a bill that would force President Trump to nominate an anti-Semitism envoy, a position that has been vacant since he took office. The definition of anti-Semitism the position uses includes certain criticisms of Israel.

The bipartisan bill upgrades the current position of Anti-Semitism Envoy to an ambassador rank, which requires the job to be filled within 90 days.

The law states that the Special Envoy shall “serve as the primary advisor to, and coordinate efforts across, the U.S. government relating to monitoring and combating anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic incitement in foreign countries.”

The bill, H.R.221- Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act, was sponsored by Rep. Christopher H. Smith [R-NJ-4] and has 87 co-sponsors. Smith’s largest campaign donor was NorPAC, a pro-Israel political action committee.

Lindsey Graham: ‘Astonishing’ Trump Investigated as Russian Agent — ‘How Could the FBI Do That?’

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) commented on a New York Times report that the FBI opened an investigation into President Donald Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey.

Graham said, “Number one, that story came from somebody who leaked it with an agenda, so I’d like to know who leaked it because they have an agenda not very friendly to President Trump, and I, for one, don’t trust what I read in The New York Times.”

He added, “I’m going to ask the FBI director, ‘Was there a counterintelligence investigation opened up regarding the president as being a potential agent of the Russians?’ I find it astonishing, and to me, it tells me a lot about the people running the FBI, McCabe and that crowd. I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them. If this really did happen, Congress needs to know about it. And what I want to do is make sure, how could the FBI do that? What kind of checks and balances are there?”
