Obama’s Adviser Susan Rice Gave ‘Stand Down’ Order In Response To Russian Cyber Attacks

Obama National Security

 

( Daily Caller ) Former President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity czar confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice told him to “stand down” in response to Russian cyber attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Michael Daniel, whose official title was “cybersecurity coordinator,” confirmed the stand-down order during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing held to review the Obama and President Donald Trump’s administrations’ policy response to Russian election interference.

Rice’s order to Daniel was first reported in “Russian Roulette,” a book published in March that details Russia’s meddling in the election.

In the book, authors Michael Isikoff and David Corn reported that Daniel was developing strategies to respond to Russian cyber attacks on U.S. companies and political campaigns. He proposed using what’s known as denial of service attacks to take down Russian propaganda news sites and to attack Russian intelligence agencies.

Another idea was to announce a bogus “cyber exercise” against a Eurasian country. The goal was to put the Kremlin on notice that its infrastructure could easily be targeted by the U.S.

Rice opposed the proposals, according to “Russian Roulette.”

“Don’t get ahead of us,” she told Daniel in a meeting in August 2016, according to the book.

Daniel informed his staff of the order, much to their frustration.

“I was incredulous and in disbelief,” Daniel Prieto, who worked under Daniel, is quoted saying in “Russian Roulette.”

“Why the hell are we standing down? Michael, can you help us understand?” Prieto asked.

Daniel confirmed the exchange on Wednesday, during a round of questions from Idaho Sen. Jim Risch.

“That is an accurate rendering of the conversation at the staff meeting,” he testified.

“You were told to stand down, is that correct?” Risch, a Republican, asked Daniel.

FORMER DNC CHAIR DONNA BRAZILE: DNC ALLOWED RUSSIA TO STEAL DATA

Posted on Updated on

Donna Brazile says in her new book the Democratic National Committee (DNC) sat idly for a month while Russians stole data because primaries were still underway in a number of states.
But now the former DNC chair Donna Brazile  wants Trump to ‘Confront Mr. Putin’ on
on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election: “Now that we know there are several witches, not some 400 pound guy sitting on a bed, the president needs to acknowledge this and recognize that he needs to protect and defend our democracy”

 

In her 2017 book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” former DNC chair Donna Brazile admitted the DNC allowed alleged Russian hackers to steal data from the party’s servers.

 

In May, when CrowdStrike recommended that we take down our system and rebuild it, the DNC told them to wait a month, because the state primaries for the presidential election were still underway, and the party and the staff needed to be at their computers to manage these efforts,” Brazile wrote in her new book, “Hacks.”

RUSSIA MOVING INTO LIBYA, MILITARY BASE IN BENGHAZI…THANKS, OBAMA!

Posted on Updated on

 

By Bill Gertz – – Wednesday, July 11, 2018 The Washington Times

U.S. intelligence agencies are closely monitoring Russian military activities in Libya for signs that Moscow may soon build a military base in the divided North African state.

Intelligence reports indicate that Russia is planning to expand its Syrian bases at Tartus and Hemeimeem to Libya.

The possible Russian move into Libya represents the most recent failure stemming from the policies of President Obama that backed Islamist rebels who overthrew and killed Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi in 2011.

Mr. Obama has said that the failure to prepare for the aftermath of the ouster of Gadhafi was the worst mistake of his presidency. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also came under fire for failing to provide security for Americans who were attacked and killed in Benghazi after Gadhafi’s fall.

The push for a Russian military presence in Libya is being led by retired Maj. Gen. Khalifah Haftar, whose militia forces, the Libyan National Army, control eastern Libya. Russian private military forces have been operating in eastern Libya since March 2017, including the RSB Group that has deployed several dozen armed mercenaries to join forces

 

News reports from Libya stated recently that the RSB Group mercenaries are engaged in advance work, scouting locations for a Russian military base in Tobruk or Benghazi.

BRITAIN LOVES TRUMP RALLY IN LONDON: THOUSANDS JOIN WEARING MAGA HATS, ANTI-HILLARY SHIRTS

Posted on Updated on

  • Over 3,000 people carrying American flags and wearing MAGA hats turned out near Trafalgar Square to show their backing of Trump as well as jailed right-wing and anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson.

 

By | Fox News

Thousands of Trump supporters and right-wing activists took to the nation’s capital on Saturday — a day after anti-Trump protesters had dominated the city.

While the displays of right-wing support were nowhere near as large as the enormous anti-Trump march that demanded the international media’s attention the day before, it was still a significant show of support for Trump from those eager to counter the claim that Trump had been unanimously rejected by Britons.

THOUSANDS MARCH AGAINST TRUMP IN ROWDY LONDON PROTESTS

The day started with a small pro-Trump rally outside the U.S. Embassy, featuring numerous red “MAGA” hats and U.S. and U.K. flags — as well as a few anti-Hillary Clinton shirts.

Later, approximately 3,000 people turned out near Trafalgar Square to show their backing of Trump as well as jailed right-wing and anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson.

“Oh Tommy Tommy, Tommy Tommy Tommy Tommy Robinson,” the football chant for the activist thundered throughout the event.

Robinson, the ex-leader of the English Defense League, was jailed for 13 months beginning earlier in May for contempt of court after being arrested filming outside a court in Leeds. His supporters have claimed that the law was applied unevenly and have expressed concern for his safety in prison, considering his history of criticizing Islam.

Lisa Page ‘cooperative,’ ‘credible,’ lawmakers say after 5-hour closed-door session

Posted on

 

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page leaves following an interview with lawmakers behind closed doors on Capitol Hill, July 13, 2018.

 

  • Rep. Mark Meadows: “She’s been willing to help in the spirit of transparency. … We’ve certainly learned additional things today,”
  • “Remarkably, we learned new information today suggesting the DOJ had not notified Lisa Page of Congress’ outstanding interview requests for over 7 months now.”

 

( By | Fox News ) Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page was “cooperative” and “credible” in a closed-door session Friday with select House committee members that lasted nearly five hours.

U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., had been among Page’s harshest critics heading into the session, but he said her cooperation “speaks well of her,” according to the Hill.

Meadows said he thinks the American people “would be happy” with Friday’s transcribed interviews, the Washington Post reported.

“She’s been willing to help in the spirit of transparency. … We’ve certainly learned additional things today,” Meadows said.

The GOP-led probe is a joint investigation run by the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees.

Page, who defied a subpoena Wednesday, would have been held in contempt of Congress had she not appeared at Friday’s session, lawmakers said.

In the private testimony, she primarily answered questions about text messages with Peter Strzok that allegedly showed bias against then-candidate Donald Trump, the New York Post reported.

Meadows called Page a “credible witness,” as he walked out of the hearing, the report said.

“There is new information,” he told reporters. “And that information is credible.”

“She’s doing her best to help us find the truth and I think in ways she’s been falsely accused of not being willing to cooperate.”

THREE REASONS WHY ROD ROSENSTEIN ANNOUNCED ’12 RUSSIANS INDICTED’ STORY WHEN IT’S MONTHS OLD

Posted on

THREE POSSIBLE REASONS WHY ROD ROSENSTEIN  ANNOUNCED ’12 RUSSIANS INDICTED’ STORY WHEN IT’S MONTHS OLD:
  1. To erase from the public mind Creepy Peter Strzok disastrous hearing last Thursday
  2. Trying to interfere with Trump’s upcoming meeting with Vladimir Putin
  3. And finally, trying to set the victim narrative against the GOP who are preparing to file impeachment charges against Rosenstein as early as Monday.

 

Witch hunt boss Robert Mueller indicted 12 more Russians, an information that has been available since April but only announced via urgent press conference by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein  on Friday. But the Russian indictments story is an old news, according to Devin Nunes.

Specifically you only had to read page 4 findings 7-10. Just reading Chapter 2 you would have got the gist of it..all this despite the ridiculous redactions. Sadly the media ignored most of our findings on March 22 and the whole report since April 27.

 

 

TRUMP QUESTION TO MUELLER: “Where is the DNC Server, and why didn’t the FBI take possession of it?”

Posted on Updated on

 

….Where is the DNC Server, and why didn’t the FBI take possession of it? Deep State?

The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration. Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?

 

What Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said during his announcement of 12 Russians indicted by DOJ:

“The defendants used two techniques to steal information. First they used a scheme known as spear phishing, which involves sending misleading emails and tricking the users of disclosing their passwords and security information. Secondly, the defendants hacked into computer networks and installed malicious software and allowed them to spy on users”

 

Investor’s Business Daily Paul Sperry :

Another strange Russia indictment by Mueller: no arrests, no American co-conspirators,no seizure of servers or property, no raids & no sourcing–no informants or witnesses named,nothing attributed to intercepts. In fact,none of the findings is attributed–not even to an FBI agent

 

 

 

Rosenstein Confirms DNC Server Was Not Hacked – Dems Tricked by “Spear Phishing” Email Scam

Posted on Updated on

 

DNC server was never hacked!

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein confirmed that the DNC server was never actually hacked but emails were obtained through a “spear phishing” email scam which THOUSANDS of others, including Republicans fell for.

“The defendants used two techniques to steal information. First they used a scheme known as spear phishing, which involves sending misleading emails and tricking the users of disclosing their passwords and security information,” Rosenstein said.

“Secondly, the defendants hacked into computer networks and installed malicious software and allowed them to spy on users”

One famous victim of “spear phishing” was Hillary Clinton’s campaign director John Podesta who used “Runner4567” and “p@ssw0rd” as his passwords. Wikileaks exposed many damaging Podesta emails which hurt further the already scandal ridden Clinton campaign.

 

Investor’s Business Daily Paul Sperry:

BREAKING: Rosenstein just confirmed emails obtained through “spearfishing” email scam, which thousands of people including Republicans fell for. No wonder the DNC server was never examined by FBI. It was never actually hacked. This was a monumental lie by the Clinton campaign

QUEEN ELIZABETH 48-MINUTE TEA PARTY WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MELANIA AT WINDSOR CASTLE – PHOTOS

Posted on Updated on

Queen Elizabeth II stands with US President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, in the Grand Corridor during their visit to Windsor Castle 

 

( Daily Mail ) It might not have been a state visit, but Donald Trump certainly looked very pleased to have met the Queen yesterday.

Posing for a photograph with Her Majesty and his wife Melania inside Windsor Castle in the Grand Corridor on their way to have tea in her private apartments, the US President’s broad smile signalled just how much he was enjoying having the red carpet rolled out for him.

He even got more time with the Queen than he was expecting: after all the pomp and ceremony of the welcome, he was only meant to have 30 minutes with her indoors, but instead it lasted for 48 minutes.

And how the red carpet was rolled out for him. Having flown into Windsor by helicopter, Mr and Mrs Trump arrived in the castle’s quadrangle by car via the George IV gate.

The Queen was already there waiting for him on a dais and wearing a blue coat, dress and hat by Angela Kelly – the same outfit she wore for the State Opening of Parliament, although the hat’s flowers had been replaced with a bow.

In fact, she arrived in the quadrangle 11 minutes before the President, the band striking up God Save The Queen as she stood and watched.

The Queen looked twice at her watch, leading to online speculation that Mr Trump was late and keeping her waiting, but he arrived at the time he was due to.

A Guard of Honour, formed of the Coldstream Guards, one of the British Army’s longest serving units, was already there too, waiting in the heat in their red tunics and bearskin hits.

There has been much speculation about how Mr Trump, who is famed for saying and acting exactly how he likes, might cope with the etiquette and protocol of meeting the Queen.

Fake News: WaPo’s Christopher Ingraham Falsely Links Mueller Indictment to Trump Joke

Posted on

SUPERIMPOSED: Washington Post reporter Christopher Ingraham. WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 18: U.S. President Donald Trump waves during a meeting of the National Space Council at the East Room of the White House June 18, 2018 in Washington, DC. President Trump signed an executive order to establish the Space Force, an …

 

  • Vox reporter Andrew Prokop corrected Christopher Ingraham, noting the indictment actually states the alleged hackers launched spearphishing attacks against more than 30 Clinton campaign staffers on April 6, 2016. Prokop further noted Donald Trump’s joke was about Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from her personal, unsecured server used for State Department business — not those of her presidential campaign.

 

 

Christopher Ingraham, a data reporter for the Jeff Bezos-owned newspaper, claimed Russian hackers first targeted members of the Clinton campaign following candidate Trump’s joke about retrieving the former Secretary of State’s deleted emails. Ingraham made this connection based on a passage in the Justice Department’s indictment of 12 Russian intelligence operatives.

From Breitbart:

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump quipped during a July 27, 2016 press conference. Ingraham saw that same date in the indictment PDF and leaped into action to connect the dots (which the Special Counsel did not): “that evening, Russian operatives targeted Clinton campaign emails ‘for the first time.’”

Ingraham then laid out the conspiracy theory, in case anyone missed the implication: “Trump called on Russia to hack the Clinton campaign, and they did.”

GOP READY TO IMPEACH ROD ROSENSTEIN FOR IGNORING REQUESTED DOJ DOCUMENTS

Posted on

 

By | Fox News                                         

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the target of an impeachment effort being undertaken by conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to a report.

U.S. Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, both members of the House Freedom Caucus, are said to be leading the effort and could submit an impeachment filing in the next few days, Politico reported Friday.

Rosenstein has been clashing with some House Republicans for months over requests for Department of Justice documents, the Washington Examiner reported. The deputy AG oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.

On Thursday, the New York Times reported that the White House ordered that more members of Congress receive access to classified information about an FBI informant linked to the Russia probe, despite objections from U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials.

It was Rosenstein who named Mueller to lead the Trump-Russia probe after Rosenstein’s boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, recused himself from the investigation because of Sessions’ own role in the Trump campaign.

Politico’s story on the possible impeachment filing against Rosenstein came on the same day that Rosenstein announced Mueller’s 12 indictments against Russian military intelligence officials on charges linked to the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

No Collusion: Rosenstein Indicts 12 Russians for Hacking, No Americans Involved

DOJ indicts Russian intel team for Hillary hack as Trump, Putin just days away from Helsinki sit-down

  • Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein: “The indictment charges twelve Russian nationals for committing federal crimes that were intended to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. All twelve defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian Federation intelligence agency within the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian military. “

 

 

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment of 12 members of Russian military intelligence Friday for hacking Democrats’ emails during the 2016 presidential election, and noted there was no collusion alleged with any Americans.

John Podesta, the former chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign whose emails were among those hacked and leaked, welcomed the indictments as if they contradicted President Donald Trump’s claims about a “witch hunt.” Yet, ironically, the indictment confirms that there were no Americans involved in either the hacking or the dissemination of the Democrats’ emails.

Rosenstein announced:

The indictment charges twelve Russian nationals for committing federal crimes that were intended to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. All twelve defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian Federation intelligence agency within the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian military. These GRU officers, in their official capacities, engaged in a sustained effort to hack into the computer networks of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, and the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, and released that information on the internet under the names “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0” and through another entity.

12 RUSSIAN OFFICERS INDICTED BY DOJ IN CONNECTION WITH HACKING OF HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND DNC

Posted on Updated on

 

  • The indictment identifies the defendants as officers with Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, also known as GRU. It accuses them of covertly monitoring the computers of dozens of Democratic officials and volunteers, implanting malicious computer code known as malware and using phishing emails to gain control of the accounts of people associated with the Clinton campaign

WASHINGTON (AP) — Twelve Russian military intelligence officers hacked into the Clinton presidential campaign and Democratic Party, releasing tens of thousands of stolen and politically damaging communications, in a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election, according to a grand jury indictment announced days before President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The indictment stands as special counsel Robert Mueller’s first allegation implicating the Russian government directly in criminal behavior meant to sway the presidential election.

U.S. intelligence agencies have said the meddling was aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming the election bid of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. The effort also included bogus Facebook ads and social media postings that prosecutors say were aimed at influencing public opinion and sowing discord on hot-button social issues.

 

The indictment lays out a broad, coordinated effort starting in March 2016 to break into key Democratic email accounts, such as those belonging to the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Among those targeted was John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman.

The Kremlin denied anew that it tried to sway the election. “The Russian state has never interfered and has no intention of interfering in the U.S. elections,” Putin’s foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said Friday.

But the indictment identifies the defendants as officers with Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, also known as GRU. It accuses them of covertly monitoring the computers of dozens of Democratic officials and volunteers, implanting malicious computer code known as malware and using phishing emails to gain control of the accounts of people associated with the Clinton campaign.

By June 2016, the defendants began planning the release of tens of thousands of stolen emails and documents, the indictment alleges. The messages were released through fictitious personas like DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.

The charges come as Mueller continues to investigate potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election.

Flood of Calls to Arrest George Lopez For Pee Prank on Trump’s Hollywood Star

Comedian George Lopez urinates on President Donald Trump's Hollywood star.

 

( TMZ ) George Lopez‘s pee prank on Donald Trump‘s Hollywood star isn’t sitting well with a bunch of people who are begging LAPD to arrest GLo.

Law enforcement tells TMZ … LAPD’s received a slew of calls and emails — more than 50 — from citizens ticked about George’s “sick, deplorable, offensive and disrespectful” act. They’re not just Angelenos, either … some complaints are coming from as far away as Virginia.

TMZ broke the story … George unloaded on Trump’s star with a water bottle held between his legs. One complaint accused George of indecent exposure, even though he never unzipped or unbuttoned his pants.

Another complaint said, “If this was any normal person they would be arrested for indecent exposure. [Does] the Hollywood elite think they’re above the law and you guys took a oath to obtain the Law.”

Pissed citizens aside, cops say it’s just a prank and no crime was committed.

 Donald Trump claimed Sadiq Khan is responsible for the terror attacks on the British capital

 

  • Trump: “Mayor Khan doesn’t like me but I say to him: You’ve done terrible job on terror”

 

( The Sun ) DONALD Trump today claims Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is responsible for the terror attacks on the British capital.

The Labour heavyweight has “done a very bad job on terrorism” by allowing so many migrants to come to the city, the President controversially argues.

“Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism.

“I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”

London was hit by four terror attacks last year — including in Westminster, London Bridge, Parsons Green Tube station and Finsbury Park’s mosque.

Speaking to The Sun inside the US Embassy in Brussels, the US President also revealed he thinks Mr Khan has shown a lack of respect to America by attacking him personally.

The US President delivers his incendiary verdict on her negotiating strategy in a world exclusive interview with The Sun.

In an extraordinary intervention timed to coincide with his UK visit, Mr Trump said Theresa May ignored his advice by opting for a soft Brexit strategy.

And he warned her any attempts to maintain close ties with the EU would make a lucrative US trade deal very unlikely.

Mr Trump said: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal.”

His comments, damaging to the Prime Minster, come as he delivers his most brutally honest verdict yet on Britain in which he also:

PETER STRZOK: FBI GOT TRUMP DOSSIER FROM OBAMA DOJ OFFICIAL BRUCE OHR WHOSE WIFE WAS HIRED BY FUSION GPS TO INVESTIGATE TRUMP

  • Peter Strzok: “Mr. Ohr provided information to the FBI that included material that is what everybody is calling the dossier.”

 

On Thursday disgraced FBI investigator Peter Strzok admitted during his congressional hearing that the phony Russia dossier was funneled through the FBI by top Obama DOJ official Bruce Ohr whose wife Nellie was hired by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, paid by Hillary Clinton, to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump.

Fusion GPS admits DOJ official’s wife Nellie Ohr hired to probe Trump

By Jake Gibson | Fox News  December 13th, 2017     

A co-founder of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS acknowledged in a new court document that his company hired the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump last year.

The confirmation from Glenn Simpson came in a signed declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and provided a fuller picture of the nature of Nellie Ohr’s work – after Fox News first reported on her connection to Fusion GPS.

Her husband, Bruce Ohr, was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump “dossier” containing salacious allegations about the now-president. Together, the Fusion connections for Mr. and Mrs. Ohr have raised Republican concerns about objectivity at the Justice Department, and even spurred a call from Trump’s outside counsel for a separate special prosecutor.

Simpson’s statement shows Mrs. Ohr was indeed involved in the Trump research. He said bank records reflect Fusion GPS contracted with her “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump.” — Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/13/fusion-gps-admits-doj-officials-wife-nellie-ohr-hired-to-probe-trump.html

A creepy video clip of smirking, smug, disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok was posted by a Twitter user, @Hollybowie, during his House hearing by the Judiciary and Oversight committees on Thursday. He has the face Hollywood would pay millions for a horror movie – or a killer face.

By  Holly Bowie @Hollybowie:

Completely real. I personally recorded it from my tv. I was so shocked when I saw it and played it back. I only cut the first part of the arguing. This is the full recording I captured. I couldn’t believe it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arrogant Peter Strzok: FBI Let Me Decide Which Texts I Thought Were ‘Relevant’ to Hand Over to IG

Posted on

( Breitbart ) Peter Stroke admitted to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) that he had not, in fact, turned over all of his text messages to the Inspector General, and that he had been allowed to determine which ones had “material that was relevant to FBI business”:

Rep. Goodlatte: Now, you and Ms. Page used personal phones and accounts to communicate. Have you turned over those communications to the Inspector General?

Strzok: No, sir.

Rep. Goodlatte: If not, why not? 

Strzok: Sir, they asked, and working with my attorney, the Inspector General and I arranged an agreement where I would go through my personal accounts and identify any material that was relevant to FBI business and turn it over. It was reviewed. There was none. And my understanding the inspector general was satisfied with that action. 

Rep. Goodlatte: We know from texts that you and Ms. Page would transition to iMessage and Gmail. Who determined that messages were only personal in nature and not business-related, especially since you’ve just testified at length that a number of the communications that you have made on government communications devices were personal in nature? 

Strzok: Sir, the broad, broad context of what I used personal email and phones for was personal communication. For those things that were work-related, almost universally that material was translated into FBI systems. Certainly, if it was anything that was a record or would constitute needing to be there, it was provided. But I made that decision. 

During the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails, it emerged that she and her attorneys had been permitted to go through the emails on her server and determine which were work-related and had to be turned over to the government after she left. They were allowed to do so, even though some of the emails contained classified materials, and her attorneys lacked the necessary security clearance to see them. The emails on Clinton’s server were subsequently destroyed, as were other devices containing the emails.

Snowflake Uber driver refused GOP interns service because of MAGA hats

Posted on

Matthew Handy, 20, of Kentucky says an Uber driver refused to give him and three others a ride together in Washington this week because two of them were carrying pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hats.

 

(  By | Fox News ) Several interns on Capitol Hill for a program geared toward young black Republicans said an Uber driver refused to give them a ride together in Washington this week because two of them were carrying pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hats.

The incident unfolded Tuesday, according to the interns, when they piled into an Uber to head to a monthly gathering of supporters of the president at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

In interviews with Fox News, three of the interns said the driver picked them up at George Washington University. But after the driver asked them about the famous pro-Trump red hats, he told the interns he couldn’t give them a ride, they said.

The interns, who have been working for Republican lawmakers this summer, said they were forced to get out of the Uber car.

Uber did not immediately return a request for comment from Fox News.

GOP Rep. Gohmert unloads on ‘smirking’ Peter Strzok: ‘How many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her?’

Posted on Updated on

  • Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, shouted over objections by Democrats. “I can’t help but wonder, when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?”

 

( Fox News ) An already raucous hours-long Congressional hearing into FBI agent Peter Strzok’s apparent anti-Trump bias boiled over on Thursday afternoon, as a top Republican asked the “smirking” Strzok whether he was lying under oath the same way he “lied” to his wife while he carried on an affair with now-former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

“The disgrace is what this man has done to our justice system,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, shouted over objections by Democrats. “I can’t help but wonder, when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?”

Democrats immediately erupted into more objections, with one yelling, “Mr. Chairman, this is intolerable harassment of the witness” and another calling out, “You need your medication.”

Strzok and Page exchanged numerous text messages on their FBI-issued phones expressing hostility toward then-candidate Trump in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, even as Strzok was a lead investigator on the Hillary Clinton and Russian meddling probes.

The two also communicated on their work phones to hide their affair from their spouses, according to a bombshell report released last month by the Justice Department’s inspector general.

Trey Gowdy to smirking Peter Strzok: ‘I don’t give a damn what you appreciate’

Posted on

  • Trey Gowdy: “I don’t give a damn what you appreciate, Agent Strzok,” Mr. Gowdy said. “I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations.”

 

( Washington Times ) Rep. Trey Gowdy and FBI agent Peter Strzok got into a testy exchange Thursday over a series of anti-Trump texts Mr. Strzok sent his lover just before he started as lead investigator for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion probe.

Mr. Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, questioned Mr. Strzok about his dismissal from Mr. Mueller’s team, saying the texts disparaging President Trump showed he was biased.

But the embattled FBI agent challenged that, saying that he was let go because the text messages create the perception of bias, not that he was found to be biased.

“It is not my understanding that [Mueller] kicked me off because of any bias, that it was was done on the appearance,” Mr. Strzok said. “If you want to represent what you said accurately, I am happy to answer that question, but I don’t appreciate what was originally said being changed.”

“I don’t give a damn what you appreciate, Agent Strzok,” Mr. Gowdy said. “I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations.”

Peter Strzok refuses to tell Jim Jordan how he got different versions of Trump dossier

Posted on

 

( Washington Examiner ) FBI agent Peter Strzok would not reveal Thursday while testifying in front of House lawmakers how he had access to three copies from different sources of the infamous “Trump dossier.”

During the multi-hour hearing, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, read an email sent by Strzok to other members of the FBI, that pointed out the dossier published by BuzzFeed News was identical to the documents that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., had passed along to the FBI. In the email, Strzok noted that the dossier “has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson.”

Jordan pressed Strzok on the identities of Corn and Simpson. Strzok declined to the answer the question, though Jordan specifically asked whether the email referred to journalist David Corn and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Strzok said he had not communicated with either of the men.

When asked if he ever communicated with Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official who had been in contact with former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier for Fusion GPS, or his wife Nellie Ohr, who was employed by Fusion GPS, Strzok said he had spoken with Bruce Ohr anywhere from three to five times from late 2016 to early 2017.

“We talked about investigative matters that Mr. Ohr was involved in,” Strzok said.

WATCH: Arrogant, lying Peter Strzok hearing descends into chaos after Trey Gowdy asks first question

Posted on

 

( Washington Examiner ) A congressional hearing featuring FBI agent Peter Strzok descended into chaos Thursday moments after House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., asked the first question of the day.

Gowdy asked Strzok, who sent text messages to former FBI lawyer Lisa Page disparaging then-candidate Donald Trump, how many interviews he conducted between July 31, 2016, and Aug. 8, 2016, relating to the investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 election and alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Strzok said he was unable to answer, based on instruction from FBI lawyers, because the Russia investigation was ongoing. Gowdy fired back that he wasn’t asking for names, he only wanted to know how many people. Strzok maintained that he wouldn’t be able to answer.

The hearing then got sidetracked as Republicans and Democrats held a fiery debate over whether Strzok could be forced to answer the question.

PHOTOS: TRUMP AND MELANIA LAND IN BRITAIN WITH OVER 1,000 STAFF – 10,000 POLICE OFFICERS DRAFTED FOR PROTECTION

Posted on Updated on

( Daily Mail ) Donald Trump has touched down in Britain for his first official visit and has already brushed off mass protests by saying: ‘I think they like me a lot in the UK – they’re great people’.

The US President, 72, who will meet the Prime Minister and Queen during a four-day red carpet visit, landed at Stansted Airport on Air Force One at just before 2pm and walked off hand-in-hand with First Lady Melania.

America’s Commander-in-Chief has 1,000 of his own staff in the UK and a giant motorcade led by his bomb-proof Cadillac nicknamed ‘The Beast’ as well as multiple helicopters including Marine One to fly him around.

The President and his First Lady were met on the tarmac by US Ambassador Woody Johnson and UK Trade Secretary Liam Fox before he was whisked off to Mr Johnson’s house near Regent’s Park.

Tonight he will attend a gala dinner with US and UK business leaders at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire – the ancestral seat of Sir Winston Churchill.

Earlier today Mr Trump gave an extraordinary press conference in Brussels after giving NATO leaders a bruising over defence cash, where he wrote off protesters and said Theresa May’s Brexit deal probably wasn’t what Britons voted for.

When asked about the threat of mass demonstrations he said: ‘I think it’s fine. A lot of people like me there. I think they agree with me on immigration. I think that’s why Brexit happened’.

Food Stamp Usage Drops Below 40 Million for First Time in 8 Years

Posted on

 

 

Food stamp participation dropped below 40 million for the first time in eight years, according to the latest numbers on food stamp enrollment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The most recent USDA data reveals that 39,604,428 people were enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—the program that administers food stamps—as of April 2018. The last time enrollment dipped below 40 million was in February 2010, when 39,588,993 people received SNAP benefits.

The latest data on enrollment shows that overall enrollment in the food stamp program has reached historic lows, reaching its lowest point in eight years.

But food stamp enrollment has been steadily declining over the past few months, keeping pace with the downward trend in SNAP participation since 2013.

GOP Rep Lee Zeldin: ‘If it Requires Handcuffs to Get Lisa Page to Abide by a Congressional Subpoena, So Be It’

Posted on Updated on

 

 

Congressman Lee Zeldin on Trump-hating FBI lawyer Lisa Page ignoring House subpoena for close door interrogation:

If it requires handcuffs to get Lisa Page, an employee of the fed govt, to abide by a Congressional subpoena to testify & answer questions then so be it. Working for the FBI is a great privilege, but Page doesn’t become her own branch of govt in charge of her own set of fed laws.

Page’s refusal to testify in Congress shows even more contempt for the American people, accountability & transparency, than it shows contempt of Congress. This former top FBI official & Strzok accomplice should be held in contempt & brought to Capitol Hill by force if necessary.

 

 

From Washington Times:

Ms. Page was deputy counsel to then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and worked for the Mueller team, but was removed after text messages between her and her extramarital lover Peter Strzok showed the pair ridiculing Mr. Trump and talking about an “insurance policy” in the event Mr. trump won the election.

In another text, Ms. Page said she was worried Mr. Trump would win the election to which Mr. Strzok responded, “No. No. We’ll stop it.”

Those messages have fueled conservative complaints of political bias in Mr. Mueller’s probe of purported Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Mr. Strzok, who was also a member of Mr. Mueller’s team, is scheduled to testify before the two committees on Thursday. Last month, Mr. Strzok spent 11 hours testifying in a closed session.

On Tuesday morning, Mr. Trump appeared to indicate that Ms. Page and Mr. Strzok would not be testifying before Congress === Read more: Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page refuses to testify, despite subpoena

Trump then asked why the spending increase happened last year.

“Why was that last year?” Trump asked.

“It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message…” Stoltenberg responded.

 

( Daily Caller ) NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that he agrees with President Trump on spending issues and thinks Trump’s leadership was responsible for making other NATO countries pay more.

Trump took to opportunity to blast the media for not reporting it.

During a joint appearance, Stoltenberg said, “First of all, it’s great to see you again, Mr. President. And good to have you here for a summit. And we are going to discuss many important issues at the summit. Among them is defense spending. And we all agree that we have to do more. I agree with you that we have to do make sure that our allies are investing more. The good news is that allies have started to invest more in defense.”

He continued, “After years of cutting defense budgets, they have started to add billions to their defense budgets. And last year was the biggest increase in defense spending across Europe and Canada in that generation.”

Trump then asked why the spending increase happened last year.

“Why was that last year?” Trump asked.

“It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message…” Stoltenberg responded.

Trump then pointed to the press and poked at the media for not reporting on his successes.

“They won’t write that, but that’s okay,” Trump said.

Trump’s ‘America First’ Economy Secures 10-Year Employment High for Manufacturing Workers

Posted on Updated on

US-Manufacturing

  • Specifically, in the metals manufacturing industry, Trump’s tariffs on imported steel, aluminum, and Chinese electronics seems to have boosted U.S. job growth
 

Washington, D.C.

More American manufacturing workers are employed today than at any time in the last ten years as President Trump’s ‘America First’ economy seeks to protect U.S. industry and jobs with tariffs, less immigration, and tax relief.

In June 2018, Trump’s booming economy delivered an additional 36,000 manufacturing jobs for American workers, many of whom have had their livelihoods destroyed by job-killing free trade deals like NAFTA and KORUS.

 

Specifically, in the metals manufacturing industry, Trump’s tariffs on imported steel, aluminum, and Chinese electronics seems to have boosted U.S. job growth — with 7,000 new jobs in manufacturing fabricated metal products, 5,000 new jobs in manufacturing computer and electronic products, and 3,000 new jobs in manufacturing primary metals.

On Tuesday night Peter Strzok’s partner in Trump-hating FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her legal counsel announced she will not appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday despite a Congressional subpoena.

NBC news Alex Moe‏:

Lisa Page will NOT attend the deposition Wednesday before House Judiciary & Oversight Cmtes bc wants more info on scope of intv and time to prepare per her lawyer —>

Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows  tweeted out this morning that Lisa Page and her attorneys DID Review the requested documents at the FBI on Tuesday despite what they told the media:

Contrary to what her attorneys are telling the media, we just learned Lisa Page actually DID review documents at the FBI yesterday. Her failure to appear before Congress this morning had little to do with ‘preparation’–and everything to do with avoiding accountability.

 

Rep. Jim Jordan‏ tweeted yesterday:

Lisa Page ignores congressional subpoena, once again showing the double standard. One set of rules for regular Americans, a different set for the Swamp!

 

 

 

 

 

 

America’s Richest Self-Made Women: country’s most successful self-made women entrepreneurs and executives

Posted on

  • At No. 1 is Diane Hendricks, a Wisconsin billionaire who owns ABC Supply, one of the largest wholesale distributors of roofing, siding and windows in America
  • Eren Ozmen: “Look at the United States and what women can do here, compared to the rest of the world. That is why we feel we have a legacy to leave behind.”

 

( Forbes ) The combined net worth of the top 60 self-made women is now a record $71 billion, 15% more than in 2017. The minimum net worth to make Forbes’ fourth annual ranking of these top women jumped 23% to a record $320 million. Twenty-four of these women are billionaires, another record, up from 18 last year.

Seven newcomers joined the ranks (6 from California), including 4 Instagram-savvy makeup moguls. The richest of these new faces is billionaire Anastasia Soare, whose cosmetics company Anastasia Beverly Hills, best known for beautifying eyebrows, now has more than 17 million followers on Instagram. The youngest is Kylie Jenner, who turns 21 in August. Half-sister of Kim Kardashian West, who is also on the list for the first time, Jenner has leveraged her massive social media following (110 million followers on Instagram) to build a $900 million cosmetics fortune in less than three years. That makes her worth more than twice as much as her more famous sister.

At No. 1 is Diane Hendricks, a Wisconsin billionaire who owns ABC Supply, one of the largest wholesale distributors of roofing, siding and windows in America. While the vast majority of list members hail from California – 27 altogether – the top three, including Hendricks, Little Caesars’ Marian Ilitch and Epic Software’s Judy Faulkner, all hail from the Midwest.

Altogether 17 list members made their fortunes in fashion and retail, 7 of whom peddle cosmetics and skin care products. Another 13 including Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg built fortunes in technology, while 10 including Oprah Winfrey and Taylor Swift made it in media and entertainment.

How 20-Year-Old Kylie Jenner Built A $900 Million Fortune In Less Than 3 Years

Posted on Updated on

 

( Forbes ) Kylie Jenner sits at a dark-wood dining table at her mother’s home in Calabasas, California, flicking through display options for a forthcoming pop-up shop. The youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner industrial complex needs to decide how to showcase products by her Kylie Cosmetics makeup company. She taps her black iPhone X with a silver glittery nail and turns the screen around to show a coterie of employees a vending machine.

“You guys, imagine this, but all in lip kits,” says Jenner, dressed in a black blazer and matching black patent Louboutins with bright red soles. “I think it needs to be a clear vending machine where you see all the colors.”

…Just 20 when this story publishes (she’ll turn 21 in August) and an extremely young mother (she had baby daughter Stormi in February), Jenner runs one of the hottest makeup companies ever. Kylie Cosmetics launched two years ago with a $29 “lip kit” consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner, and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330 million in 2017. Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.

PAUL MANAFORT MOVED TO ALEXANDRIA JAIL; JUDGE DELAYS MIKE FLYNN SENTENCING AGAIN

Posted on Updated on

Mike Flynn joins global consulting firm

 

Federal Judge Delays Sentencing For General Mike Flynn AGAIN

The Los Angeles Times reported:

As part of Flynn’s plea deal, he agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors and his sentencing has been delayed. The special counsel’s office and Flynn’s lawyers recently asked the probation office to prepare a pre-sentence report, a standard step that normally involves an investigation into a convicted criminal’s background to document extenuating circumstances that might lessen the sentence, or a criminal history to justify a heavier sentence.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan called for the hearing to determine why the court shouldn’t follow its standard practice of preparing a report and scheduling a sentencing date at the same time. The probation office is already overworked, Sullivan said Tuesday.

Flynn’s lawyers and prosecutors agreed to delay preparation of the pre-sentence report, although Flynn’s lead attorney, Robert Kelner, emphasized that he hopes to move quickly toward resolution.

“Gen. Flynn is eager to proceed … when that is possible,” he told the judge.

(AP Photo/Andrew Harnik, File)

 

By Jeff Mordock – The Washington Times – Updated: 5:55 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, 2018

A federal judge Tuesday ordered former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to be relocated to a jail in Alexandria, Virginia.

Judge T. S. Ellis III, who is overseeing Mr. Manafort’s Virginia case said the move was necessary so he can more easily communicate with his lawyers.

Mr. Manafort is currently incarcerated to the Northern Neck Jail, which is about two hours away from his Washington, D.C.-based attorneys.

Judge Ellis said Mr. Manafort must be moved to “ensure the defendant has access to his counsel and can adequately prepare his defense.”

The request to relocate Mr. Manafort was one of several motions made last week by his attorneys. They also asked for the trial be moved until the fall and relocated to Roanoke, Virginia, arguing Northern Virginia “skews left” too much for Mr. Manafort to receive a fair trial.

Trump Issues Full Pardons To Oregon Ranchers, Dwight and Steven Hammond, Forced Back Into Prison Under Anti-Terror Law

Posted on Updated on

 

( Daily Caller ) President Donald Trump pardoned two Oregon ranchers forced back into prison in 2016 to serve out the rest of the mandatory minimum sentence required under an anti-terrorism law.

“The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” the White House said in a statement. “The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges.

Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted of committing arson on federal land in 2012 under an anti-terrorism law from 1996. The U.S. District Court judge who sentenced the ranchers believed the mandatory minimum sentence was too harsh, thus both men served short stints in prison.

The Hammonds served their time, but federal prosecutors appealed the case and got a federal court to overturn the 2012 judgement. The Hammonds were forced back into prison in 2016 to serve the rest of their sentences.

The Hammonds’ re-incarceration sparked an armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon by brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy. An armed standoff between the Bundys and law enforcement lasted

Protect the Harvest (PTH), agriculture advocacy group, has been lobbying the Trump administration to commute the Hammonds’ sentences, arguing forcing them back into prison was unjust.

Manafort’s Attorneys Will Put Mueller Hitman Andrew Weissmann on the Witness Stand (VIDEO)

Posted on

 

Joe diGenova told Lou Dobbs they may call in Robert Mueller’s team members to testify including hitman Andrew Weissmann, known as one of the most unethical prosecutors in the history of the department. This comes after weekend reports Weissmann arranged  meeting with AP reporters to use them to obtain a search warrant on a storage facility owned by former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort.

 

Joe diGenova: What we now know is that Weissmann who has done this before and is now recognized widely in the United States among lawyers as one of the most unethical prosecutors in the history of the department. Weissmann engineered this meeting between DOJ lawyers and FBI agents and the Associated Press for them to basically share information among themselves, including grand jury information, in order to put pressure on Manafort. We are watching the destruction of the FBI by people actually inside the Mueller investigation like Weissmann. This has to stop… Manfort’s attorneys have asked for a hearing. I actually think the judge is going to grant it. I think there is going to be a hearing. It will be an opportunity to put Weissmann on the witness stand along with a lot of other FBI and DOJ employees who were involved in setting up these meetings. Remember the IG Report laid out cold how the FBI had a policy of leaking information.

Trump Picks Brett Kavanaugh for SCOTUS: Pop-Up Protests, Liberal Meltdown Erupts,

Posted on

 

 ( Zero Hedge ) Following President Trump’s Monday evening nomination of judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy’s now-vacant seat, hundreds of protesters outside the Supreme Court broke open boxes of pre-printed “Stop Kavanaugh” signs – wasting a substantial amount of paper as the other Supreme Court nominees’ pre-printed protest banners went unused.

 

The protest in front of the Supreme Court became so volatile that Fox News reporter Shannon Bream felt too threatened to go live from the scene, tweeting “Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile. Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS.”

BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON PLAY THE AVERAGE FOLKS, FLY COMMERCIAL TWICE IN ONE WEEKEND

Posted on

( Daily Mail ) Bill and Hillary took a rare trip together over the weekend, with the pair heading down to Washington DC on Friday and then returning to New York on Sunday.

And in an even rarer move, the two flew commercial, which gave their fellow Delta passengers and travelers at Ronald Reagan International Airport a chance to snag a selfie with the former president and former secretary of state.

Videos of the two show Bill smiling and enthusiastically greeting fans, while Hillary stands off to the side surrounded by a wall of Secret Service agents.

The woman who shared that photo to Instagram was asked by one friend about meeting Hillary, and replied: ‘Unfortunately no one got a chance to talk to her since she stayed in the corner while Bill shook everyone’s hands and took countless selfies.’

Bill could be seen smirking and looked to be enjoiying the attention as the rest of the plane’s passengers filed to their seats.

Hillary on the other hand remained largely stoic while intensely reading a report.

Her husband was reading Crimson Lake, a thriller about a man wrongfully believed to have abducted a pre-teen.

Lisa Page to appear on Capitol Hill for closed-door interview with House Judiciary, Oversight Committees

Posted on

 

( Fox News ) Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is expected to appear at a closed-door deposition in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Wednesday, just one day before former bureau colleague and lover Peter Strzok is set to testify publicly about the start of the Russia investigation.

A congressional source told Fox News on Monday that the judiciary committee issued a subpoena to Page, but noted that it was unclear whether Page’s attorneys and the committee would work out an agreement ahead of the Wednesday morning interview so that her testimony would be considered voluntary.

Attorneys for Strzok, who gave his private interview last month, and the committee agreed to a similar arrangement after he was subpoenaed.

Page is expected to face a grilling in the joint interview. For months, the attorney has been caught in the crosshairs of investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election, amid revelations that she and Strzok exchanged hundreds of politically charged, anti-Trump text messages.

San Francisco’s homeless poop and drug crisis is New York’s future…liberal trash!

Posted on Updated on

poop

  • San Francisco has become known as the city where 20 pounds of poop was dumped on a sidewalk
  • .New York City and San Francisco City have accepted that people living on their streets are inevitably using their sidewalks as a toilet.

 

( New York Post ) “A major medical association is pulling its annual convention out of the city — saying its members no longer feel safe,” reports the San Francisco Chronicle. It’s a loss of approximately $40 million for the city and a warning to other cities with similar policies, like New York: You could be next.

Beautiful, hilly San Francisco has become known as the city where 20 pounds of poop was dumped on a sidewalk last week in a clear bag and remained there for hours. As The Post noted, “human waste-related complaints in San Francisco have skyrocketed 400 percent from 2008 to 2018,” and “In 2017 alone, more than 21,000 reports were received.”

…..New York started following San Francisco’s lead in 2016 when Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. announced his office would no longer be prosecuting offenses such as public urination. Both cities have accepted that they’ll continue to have a large number of people living on their streets and inevitably using their sidewalks as a toilet.

A BuzzFeed story in May noted that the city’s explosion of public drug use has “tested San Francisco’s image as a liberal, compassionate urban oasis” and that, according to the city’s Department of Public Health, “there are about 22,000 intravenous drug users in the city, or about 470 per square mile.” Few want to live in a place where you risk stepping on a discarded needle, as San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell actually did.

Yet, also in May, Mayor Bill de Blasio told police to stop arresting people for smoking marijuana in public starting Aug. 1, and the city plans to open four “safe injection sites” where heroin users can shoot up under the supervision of a doctor.

Boston Wants To Give Non-U.S. Citizens Voting Rights

Posted on Updated on

 

( Daily Wire ) The city of Boston is reportedly considering whether to extend voting rights within its borders to legal, non-U.S. citizens.

According to the Boston Globe, the Boston City Council is looking for a way to make city-wide elections “more inclusive” of those who live and work in the city of Boston, including people who may not have the right to vote under the United States Constitution.

If the council votes Tuesday to enact the measure, Bostonians who are “legal permanent residents,” possess a valid work visa, or who fall under the protection of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Act, will be able cast a ballot to vote for mayor, city council, and other local offices.

Those without U.S. citizenship would still be restricted from casting a ballot in Federal or Massachusetts state elections.
