Gowdy frustrated over FBI and DOJ failure to comply with issued subpoenas in relation to Trump dossier

0

 

The House Intelligence Committee’s subpoenas to the FBI and DOJ did not yield any particular result in relation to the Trump dossier, an uncorroborated intelligence report initially released by BuzzFeed in January that describes a potential link between Donald Trump and Russia, including communication between Russian officials and Trump.

The FBI and DOJ were given until Sept. 1 to respond to the subpoenas. However, both departments failed to do so, and as a result of that, now the committee is targeting individual officials.

“We got nothing,” said Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the leader of the committee’s investigation into Russia. “The witnesses have not been produced and the documents have not been produced.”

As a response, according to the Washington Examiner, the committee has now extended the deadlines on the two subpoenas to September 14 and has issued two additional ones: to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, demanding that the two appear before the committee and explain why their agencies had failed to comply.

“A subpoena is a tool of last resort in Congress,” said a frustrated Trey Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, who spoke to the Examiner.

“I’m sure you’re noting with the same irony I’m noting the difficulty that a Republican Congress is having getting information from a Department of Justice run by Jeff Sessions,” the South Caroina congressman added.

GOP Congressman Devin Nunes, the chairperson of the panel, said he will hold both Sessions and Wray in contempt of Congress if they continue their noncompliance with the issued subpoenas.

Hillary Clinton: Comey Had Badly Overstepped His Bounds

0

Hillary Clinton revealed how she feels for James Comey, who is handeling with her email probe. The former Secretary of State in her upcoming memoir, says that she regrets not going after Comey “hard” from the moment he announced the investigation’s results. James Comey is one of the many people, whom Clinton blamed for her 2016 election loss.

According to a post by The Daily Beast, Clinton complains about Comey’s decision to revisit the email case days before the election and also takes issue with his July 2016 statement concluding the probe.

In that press event, Comey advised against criminal charges but still called her use of a private email server while secretary of state “extremely careless.

According to excerpts, Clinton writes: “My first instinct was that my campaign should hit back hard and explain to the public that Comey had badly overstepped his bounds—the same argument [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein would make months after the election. That might have blunted the political damage and made Comey think twice before breaking protocol again a few months later. My team raised concerns with that kind of confrontational approach. In the end, we decided it would be better to just let it go and try to move on. Looking back, that was a mistake.”

“Was this a bad joke? It had to be.The FBI wasn’t the Federal Bureau of IFs or Innuendos. Its job was to find out the facts. What the hell was Comey doing?”- she also criticized Comey’s October announcement regarding the discovery of new emails.

This woman will never take the blame that she, her crime and corruption are responsible for her elction loss.

Obama Promised That DACA Would Be Temporary Relief

0

Trump administration took a new step against struggle with illegal immigration. Recently, Attorney General announced that the DACA program which protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation, is going to be repealed. With the repealing of DACA program 800,000 children and youth may be deported. The program will be end in six months and the Congress will came up with a new policy regarding the problem.

Trump’s decision regarding DACA program won’t be accepted by the Democrats, especially by the former President Barack Obama, who in 2012 created DACA through an executive order. On Facebook Obama published a statement regarding the repeal of DACA, calling it the decision “wrong,” “self-defeating” and “cruel”.

Despite those harsh words regarding DACA’s future, the people won’t forget that Obama is the one who invented the program and said that DACA was intended to be temporary.

During a speech announcing the new Department of Homeland Security Policy, Obama explained that the protections for the undocumented children and youth were just “temporary relief.”

“In the next few months, eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization. Let’s be clear: this is not amnesty, this is not immunity, this is not a path to citizenship, this is not a permanent fix”-said then-President Obama.

“This is a temporary stop-gap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, and patriotic young people,It is the right thing to do.”

Too bad Obama never actually did what he claimed. Obama basically exploited immigrants to gain his votes for a 2nd term, and broke the law in doing so. And he left them hanging just like he left our own Americans in Benghazi to die, and our police officers treated like road kill. He is the one who created the choaos and blames Trump who tries to fix its mess.

Steve Bannon: ‘the Catholic Church needs illegal aliens to fill the churches’

0

Former White House chief strategist to President Trump, Steve Bannon, says he respects the Pope and the Catholic Church but does not quite agree with their stance on the repeal of DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

As reported by CBS News, following the announcement of Trump’s decision to cancel DACA, Bannon lashed out at the response of the Catholic Church, whose leaders in the U.S. denounced the cancellation of the Obama-era policy, calling the decision “reprehensible.”

“I totally respect the pope and I totally respect the Catholic bishops and cardinals on doctrine. This is not about doctrine. This is about the sovereignty of a nation. And in that regard, they’re just another guy with an opinion.”
Bannon told Charlie Rose that the Church has an “economic interest in unlimited immigration.”

With the number of U.S. citizens joining the priesthood and attending mass getting smaller by the day, “[Catholic leaders] need illegal aliens to fill the churches. That’s– it’s obvious on the face of it,” Bannon argued.

“I totally respect the pope and I totally respect the Catholic bishops and cardinals on doctrine,” said Bannon, who is Catholic. “This is not about doctrine. This is about the sovereignty of a nation. And in that regard, they’re just another guy with an opinion.”

You can read the exchange between Bannon and Rose in the transcript below, as reported by cbsnews.com:

STEVE BANNON: Look what he did on DACA the other day. OK, I don’t agree with that DACA decision, but I understand how he struggled with it, I understand how he’s giving the possibility of a legislative thing. And he said even last night in a Tweet– even in a Tweet, he would rethink it. Trust me, the guys in the far right, the guys on the conservative side are not happy with this.

CHARLIE ROSE: I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal Dolan is opposed to what’s happened with DACA. Cardinal Dolan.

STEVE BANNON: The Catholic Church has been terrible about this.

CHARLIE ROSE: OK.

STEVE BANNON: The bishops have been terrible about this. By the way, you know why? You know why? Because unable to really– to– to– to come to grips with the problems in the Church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches. That’s– it’s obvious on the face of it. That’s what– the entire Catholic Bishops condemn him.

CHARLIE ROSE: They?

STEVE BANNON: They have– they have an economic interest. They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration. And as much as–

CHARLIE ROSE: –that’s a tough thing to say about your church.

STEVE BANNON: As much as I respect Cardinal Dolan and the Bishops on doctrine, this is not doctrine. This is not doctrine at all.

CHARLIE ROSE: Let me talk–

STEVE BANNON: I– I totally respect the Pope and I totally respect the Catholic Bishops and cardinals on doctrine. This is not about doctrine. This is about the sovereignty of a nation. And in that regard, they’re just another guy with an opinion.

“I don’t agree with that DACA decision but I understand how he struggled with it and I understand how he’s giving the possibility of a legislative thing. And he said last night in a tweet — in a tweet that he’d rethink it,” said Bannon.

“Trust me, the guys on the far right, the guys on the conservative side are not happy with this,” Bannon added, via the wahingtonexaminer.com.

Civil rights group call for the cancellation of Kid Rock’s concert in Detroit

0

The decision to put singer Kid Rock, who has openly supported the Confederate flag, as the opening act in the mainly black Detroit has placed the singer into an immense dispute regarding race and culture.

As reported by foxnews.com, Olympia Entertainment tapped Rock — whose real name is Robert James Ritchie — to be the opening performer for the new Little Caesars Arena with concerts scheduled for next week.

The singer has been praised for his generosity and support of Detroit, but his criticism of NFL star Colin Kaepernick, who refused to stand up for the American Anthem, triggered Detroit civil rights groups to organize a protest and demand that his shows are called off.

Rock is from the Detroit suburbs and has proudly called the city his home. He has scheduled six concerts at the arena, starting Tuesday — something that Peter Hammer, director of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Detroit’s Wayne State University, called “incredibly tone deaf.”

“Everything is different post-Charlottesville,” Hammer said, pointing to the violent white supremacist protest in Charlottesville, Va.

“These are moments where you have to act as a matter of character and state what your values are,” Hammer added. “Everything now is becoming symbolic. That means we have to choose our symbols carefully.”

The call for the cancellation of Rock’s concerts came from the National Action Network’s Detroit chapter that has scheduled a demonstration next week. This is not the organization’s first aim at the singer as they’ve formerly condemned him for exhibiting the Confederate flag at his shows.

“This is the straw that broke the camel’s back,” said the president of the network’s Detroit chapter, Rev. Charles Williams II.

“When you hire Kid Rock, who is known to be dog-whistling and cat-calling to white supremacist organizations and the white supremacist community, alt-right, whatever you want to call them, and you take our tax dollars to do that? That’s wrong,” he added.

Huckabee Sanders slams reporter for focusing on Trump Jr. meeting and ignoring Democrats’ ties with Russia

0

Congress has returned to its usual sessions following their summer recess, which means we should be looking at additional theories of the Russian election meddling narrative, despite the lack of compelling evidence to corroborate these accusations.

At a press conference on August 1, a reporter in the White House news room tried to corner press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with a tricky question about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya last year during the presidential race. The reporter’s sleazy attempt, however, was to little avail and Sanders immediately silenced the journalist.

“The only thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion and a phony scandal based on anonymous sources,” said the White House press secretary after she was asked whether Trump Jr. had been lying to the people.

But Sanders would not just leave the issue there. Instead, she used the opportunity to remind everyone in the room, and everyone watching, of the strong links between the Democrats and Russia that everyone seems to be neglecting.

“The Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government like Ukraine,” Sanders continued, “If you want to talk further about a relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons.”

The reporter who had asked the question, clearly quite bothered with Sanders’ inquiry, tried to interrupt Sanders as she had once again called the partisan media out on their incompetence to hold all politicians responsible for their wrongdoings.

Sanders mentioned the already too-familiar facts like Clinton’s overpaid addresses to Russia, the notorious uranium agreement and more unresolved activities that surfaced during last year’s presidential election.

“If you want to talk about somebody who’s actually been tough on Russia, look at President Trump,” said Sanders.

LA Made $1.3B in Illegal Immigrant Welfare Payouts

0

During 2015 and 2016 in Los Angeles County , illegal families received nearly $1.3 billion welfare money. According to data obtained by Fox News, this huge amount is nearly one-​quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population.

The data was took from the county Department of Public Social Services, responsible for doling out the benefits and gives a snapshot of the financial costs associated with sanctuary and related policies.  According to a study from the Migration Policy Institute, the sanctuary county of L.A. with the largest concentration of any county ​in the nation, is an illegal immigration epicentar which alows immigrant parents with children born in the United States to seek welfare and food stamp benefits.

A Heritage Foundation senior fellow, Robert Hector said that the cost of education, police and fire, medical, and subsidized housing can total $24,000 per year in government spending per family, much more than would be paid in taxes. “They get $3 in benefits for every $1 they spend,” Rector said.

Trump’s stance regarding immigration policies may have some influence in curtailing the population seeking welfare payments in recent months. According to the same stats, Los Angeles County is expected to dole out $200 million less this year than in 2016, and several thousand fewer families are collecting benefits.

The welfare benefit data from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services shows that:
More than 58,000 families received a total of $602 million in benefits in 2015.
More than 64,000 families received a total of $675 million in 2016.
During the first five months of 2017, more than 60,000 families received a total of $181 million.ation policies, though, may be playing some role in curtailing the population seeking welfare payments in recent months.

This means that Trump’s policies regarding illegal immigration policies are the best solution for this problem.

Democrats Are Holding The Senate Floor To Protest

0

Democrats will try anything just to stop Trump’s decision on DACA program. On Tuesday,the President outraged many Democrats, announcing that the Obama-era immigration program will be repealed.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allows about 800,000 immigrants brought into the country as children to remain legally. The Justice Department said that DACA will be end in six months and the Congress will came up with a new policy regarding the problem. Also, it was announced that any new DACA applications won’t be accepted from Tuesday onward and also said that any two-year DACA permits expiring after March 5, 2018, would not be renewed.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren called the decision the latest step in the president’s “campaign to turn us against each other.”

“It’s a cold political calculation, and those with money and power have used it time and time and time again to keep us fighting with each other, fighting over religion, fighting over race.[Trump] is failing in his basic moral duty to protect these people.”-said Warren

“If we don’t see a clean DREAM Act in September. We, as the minority here, are prepared to attach it to legislative vehicles in the fall until it passes. These ‘Dreamers’ are Americans in their hearts. They ought to become Americans in the books of law as well,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer

“This decision to end DACA without first ensuring that young people have legal protection is why we are demanding a vote on the DREAM Act as soon as possible,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein from the Senate floor, also adding that the lawmakers should stop “playing with their lives.”
The DREAM Act would allow people brought to the United States illegally as children to continue to live and work freely in the country, similar to DACA.

Soros Makes Move To Overthrow Trump

0

The liberal billionaire George Soros may be accountable for a recent move to enable fraudulent voting. According to Washington Free Beacon, Soros is behind yet another lawsuit against a state’s voter identification laws, the latest in a series of challenges that stem back to 2015.

According to the New Hampshire law, voters are required to have a driver’s license or another form of identification in order to vote in elections. This requirement also prevents undocumented citizens from voting, and makes sure that each voter is a legimate resident of the state.

The League of Woman Voters (and three individuals) have filed a lawsuit against New Hampshire, citing that these types of laws are a form of voter suppression. They are supported by the liberal political action committee Priorities USA. Last year, this committee received $9.5 million from Soros and stood by Hillary Clinton.

Marc Elias is a former campaign lawyer for Clinton and one of the board members od Priorities USA. He has served her during her race for the presidency. He was behind a number of similar lawsuits in Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, and North Carolina, which many of them were funded by George Soros.

“We hope to see these unfair laws, which often disproportionately affect the most vulnerable in our society, repealed,” said Soros in 2015.

Hacked documents released last year show a top priority for the liberal billionaire is to combat “voter suppression” and enlarge the electorate by 10 million voters, the Washington Free Beacon discovered within the trove of files.

Last year’s leaked documents are showing that top priority for Soros is to combat “voter suppression” and enlarge the electorate by 10 million voters.

“The Open Society Foundations supports efforts to encourage wider participation in U.S. elections, and opposes measures used to try to suppress voter participation,” said a spokesperson from Soros’ foundation.

Attorney Generals From 15 Different States Are Suing Trump`s Decision

0

The Trump administration’s decision to end the Obama-era program that protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation has outraged many Democrats. The Democratic state attorney generals started to fight against that.

According to CNN‘s post, on Wednesday 16 Democratic and nonpartisan state attorneys general filed suit in New York federal court to stop Trump’s decision to repeal DACA. The group points out that Trump’s move motivated by discriminatory reasons, that it violated due process by being “fundamentally unfair,” and that it violated laws that dictate procedures for federal regulations.

“As President Trump’s statements about Mexico and those with Mexican roots show, the President has demonstrated a willingness to disparage Mexicans in a misguided attempt to secure support from his constituency, even when such impulses are impermissible motives for directing governmental policy,” the attorneys general wrote.

Trump announced that any new DACA applications won’t be accepted from Tuesday onward and also said that any two-year DACA permits expiring after March 5, 2018, would not be renewed.

“I filed suit against President Trump and his administration to protect DACA because Dreamers are just as American as first lady Melania Trump,” says New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas.

His fellow from New York Eric Schneiderman in a statement says : “Immigration is the lifeblood of New York State. The Trump administration’s decision to end DACA is cruel, inhumane, and devastating to the 42,000 New Yorkers who have been able to come out of the shadows and live a full life as a result of the program.”

Democratic state officials are trying to change the administration’s opinion regarding DACA, but they will have a long road ahead of them to succes in their attempt.
