DHS Chief: Without Localities’ Help, ‘We Have to Go Into Neighborhoods’ to Find Illegal Aliens

“The best place for us to pick up these illegal criminals is in jails and prisons. It is inconceivable to me that an elected official at any level would prefer these types of men and women to be released into the community,” Kelly said.

WikiLeaks says CIA disguised hacking as Russian activity 

This could lead forensic investigators into wrongly concluding that CIA hacks were carried out by the Kremlin, the Chinese government, Iran, North Korea or Arabic-speaking terror groups such as ISIS.”

How President Obama Voted ‘Present’ on Benghazi

“Col. Andrew Wood had once commanded a Special Forces anti-terrorism team protecting Ambassador Chis Stevens and other diplomats in Libya. In October of 2012, Woods told Congress that one month before the attacks in Benghazi, his team had been removed from Libya by the Obama administration, despite the numerous warnings of impending terrorist attacks. Wood told Attkisson that Special Forces (the ones mentioned in the “spinning up” email from Jeremy Bash) were on their way to Benghazi, but were ordered to turn back.

“Those individuals I know loaded aircraft and got on their way to Benghazi to respond to that incident. They were not allowed to cross the border as per protocol until they got approval from the commander in chief,” Wood explained.  “That authority has to come from him or they’re not allowed to enter the country.””

Trey Gowdy Seems to Be the Only Adult in the Room When It Comes to Sessions Perjury Charges

“The FBI’s welcome to look at it. If the Senate feels that strongly about it, they can send a referral to the FBI. But simply making a factual error is not tantamount to perjury.”

While some may view Gowdy’s legal opinion as little more than partisan politics, California civil rights attorney Robert Barnes is in agreement, as reported by Law Newz:

“Some of the same liberal law professors and journalists who thought Hillary should be president after lying to Congress about hiding emails and who also praised Clapper’s ‘independence’ after he repeatedly lied to Congress about NSA spying, now attack Attorney General Sessions under a bogus claim of ‘lying’ to Congress.

There is no basis to suggest Sessions committed any crime at all for doing his job as a senator on the Armed Services Committee.

Sessions […] met with over 20 ambassadors in 2016. One of them was the Russian ambassador. There is no evidence, at all, Sessions met with the ambassador to review Trump campaign strategy, or anything of the sort.”

Short of resignation, Democrats are demanding a special prosecutor — Pelosi says it’s “beyond” a special prosecutor — to investigate the Attorney General.”

The New Yorker’s Big Cover Story Reveals Five Uncomfortable Truths About U.S. and Russia

“THE NEW YORKER is aggressively touting its 13,000-word cover story on Russia and Trump that was bylined by three writers, including the magazine’s editor-in-chief, David Remnick. Beginning with its cover image menacingly featuring Putin, Trump, and the magazine’s title in Cyrillic letters, along with its lead cartoon dystopically depicting a UFO-like Red Square hovering over and phallically invading the White House, the article is largely devoted to what has now become standard — and very profitable — fare among East Coast newsmagazines: feeding Democrats the often xenophobic, hysterical Russophobia for which they have a seemingly insatiable craving. Democratic media outlets have thus predictably cheered this opus for exposing “Russian President Vladimir Putin’s influence on the presidential election.

But featured within the article are several interesting, uncomfortable, and often-overlooked facts about Putin, Trump, and Democrats. Given that these points are made here by a liberal media organ that is vehemently anti-Trump, within an article dispensing what has become the conventional Democratic wisdom on Russia, it is well worth highlighting them:”

‘Russian bots’ washed your brain: FBI channels John Birch Society, becomes Hooverstan again – Liberty Unyielding

“An FBI-led task force is thus investigating…a post-modern Red Scare.  It still involves the Russians.  It still involves a fell conspiracy to wash the American people’s brains and make them do terrible things.

But instead of the Communist Left, the new Red Scare is a conspiracy of the – well, I guess the narrative-writers would call it the “Populist Alt-Right.”  (I’m not too all-fired sure what that is.  For a while I thought it was Milo Yiannopoulos.  But he’s not really a populist.  On the other hand, neither are Trump’s better-known henchmen.  Neither are most Trump supporters, for that matter – if we’re talking populist populism.  It seems to me we’re really talking Vague, All-Purpose Bogeyman Populism, but that can be, you know, anything.  Well, I digress.)”
