    The FBI has "reopened" its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News. American Center for Law and Justice President Jay Sekulow called the development a positive sign, in an interview Wednesday on Fox & Friends. Sekulow said the FBI sent him a letter saying it had reopened his Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the June 2016 meeting. At first, the FBI and DOJ said they did not have documents detailing the tarmac meet-up,...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made his first appearance on "Morning Joe" this week Wednesday to light into President Donald Trump for his press conference that blamed "both sides" for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scarborough said Trump was now officially the president of the white nationalist movement after Trump received praise from former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. "You had David Duke and other white nationalists actually praising the President of the United States for his words, and why not? He has now officially become the president … not only of America but also of the white nationalist movement,"...

    A black Virginia man is speaking out after he says he was viciously attacked and beaten by white supremacists inside a Charlottesville parking garage during violent protests Saturday. Deandre Harris, 20, said he traveled to Emancipation Park to protest a white nationalist rally when a fight broke out. He said he was chased by a group of white men and beaten with metal poles as he lay helpless on the ground. Video posted by journalist Chuck Modiano, shared by Mr. Harris, showed a group of white men throwing objects at a black man on the ground and hitting him with...

    A 46-year-old Somali refugee identified as Hussein Hassan attacked a police officer in Kennewick, Washington, over the weekend with a large sword, striking at the officers head before he was shot and killed. A spokesman for the police said two officers responded to a 9-1-1 call at 6:38 p.m. Sunday about a man walking down Olympia Street near 10th Avenue armed with a sword. The two officers arrived on the scene at the same time in separate cars at about 6:40 p.m. One officer got out of his car to confront Hassan and police say the man started swinging the...
  • NC Gov: Allow Removal Of Confederate Statues Lest Protesters Get Hurt Pulling Them Down

    Breitbart ^ | 08/15/17 | AWR Hawkins
    On Tuesday night North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) called on the state legislature to grant counties, municipalities, and the state the ability to remove Confederate statues lest protesters get hurt pulling them down. NC adopted a law in 2015 that protects historical statues from being removed, and Cooper wants this law reversed. Cooper used a Facebook post to reference the way slaves were once kept in chains in the South. And he criticized the existence of Confederate monuments without mentioning that Southern slave-owners were Democrats and that the Confederacy was a Democrat nation. Rather, he said, “These monuments should...
  • Sen. Grassley says partisan lawsuits against President Trump should also implicate Hillary Clinton

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley is demanding plaintiffs of three separate lawsuits filed against President Trump, who claim the president violated an obscure Constitutional provision known as the Emoluments Clause, should also consider investigating violations allegedly committed by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, since the basis of their lawsuits also implicate the former presidential candidate. The clause prohibits any person holding office from receiving gifts or payments from foreign governments without the consent of Congress and the chairman says the overwhelming evidence against Clinton should be made part of the ongoing lawsuits, which he says are both "partisan...

    Business Insider/AP ^ | Aug 16, 2017 | John Daniszewski
    The events in Charlottesville, Virginia, are an opportunity to take another look at our terminology around "alt-right" and the way that we describe the various racist, neo-Nazi, white nationalist, and white supremacist groups out there. At AP, we have taken the position that the term "alt-right" should be avoided because it is meant as a euphemism to disguise racist aims.
  • Authorities Find No Evidence in Damond's Home

    08/16/2017 9:19:09 AM PDT · by Sopater · 17 replies
    Court documents show that authorities found nothing when they searched the home of Justine Ruszczyk Damond shortly after an officer fatally shot her. Damond called for police assistance July 15 because she believed she had heard a sexual assault taking place in the alley behind her house. Mohamed Noor, one of the two responding officers, shot her. He has declined to be interviewed by investigators. Hours later, police obtained a search warrant for Damond's house and checked inside for blood, hair, guns, ammunition, knives, drugs or writings. They took nothing from the home. The Damond family attorney, Bob Bennett, says...

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) violated its policy during the last three years of the Obama administration by giving employees overtime pay without sufficient or in most cases, any justification, according to a report by the EPA Office of Inspector General (OIG). In an audit released on Aug. 9, the OIG revealed numerous instances of noncomplicance with the emergency overtime pay system at its regional branch Region 10 covering the Pacific Northwest and a lack of consistency and accountability in the overall record-keeping system. The audit, which examined Region 10, found almost 80 EPA employees that...

    CBS Chicago ^ | 8/16/2017
    A Chicago pastor has asked the Emanuel administration to remove the names of two presidents who owned slaves from parks on the South Side, saying the city should not honor slave owners in black communities. A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park. Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue gone, and he wants George Washingtons name removed from the park. When I see that, I see a person who fought for the liberties, and I see people...

    Strategic Culture Online Journal ^ | Aug. 16, 2017 | Paul Craig Roberts
    Few Americans understand the fundamental transformation of their politics and society since the 1960s when the Civil Rights Act was stood on its head by EEOC compliance chief Alfred W. Bloomrosen. The Civil Rights Act explicitly prohibited racial and gender quotas as methods to combat discrimination, which was mainly a product of history rather than of the motivations of white males. But it is difficult to make history a villain, and social engineering benefits from having a villain to overcome. Thus was the foundation of Identity Politics laid. The initial stage of the new politics was that quotas established privilege...

    Mitt Romney joined the fray on Tuesday defending the violent club-wielding Antifa terrorists from Charlottesville. An ignorant Mitt Romney defended the Antifa terrorists for rejecting “racism and bigotry.”"No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes." - Mitt Romney  This did not go unnoticed. Romney got schooled on Twitter for defending the violent domestic terrorist group. "The fact that you view Antifa as moral and acceptable is beyond disgusting. No wonder you lost resoundingly in your presidential run." - Alex@SoCal4Trump Ann Coulter tore into the former Republican leader. "The...

    TEL AVIV — H.R. McMaster, the embattled National Security Adviser to President Trump, is threatening U.S. national security by refusing to recognize radical Islamic terrorism, a top terrorism expert told Breitbart News. “The refusal to utter or condemn by name radical Islamic terrorism only helps makes the battle against Islamic terrorism impossible to win,” stated Steven Emerson, executive director of the respected Investigative Project on Terrorism. “If you cannot identify the problem, you cannot beat it.” McMaster’s refusal to “condemn radical Islamic terrorism by name is a threat to our national security,” Emerson posited. Emerson was responding to a...

    Report: Charlottesville Racist Leader Was Former Occupy Activist, Obama Supporter by Joel B. Pollak 15 Aug 2017 The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports that Jason Kessler, the organizer of last Saturdays white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is rumored to be a former Occupy Wall Street activist and supporter of Barack Obama. The left-wing SPLC is often partisan and overzealous in targeting hate groups, lumping legitimate conservative organizations together with actual extremists. Therefore its identification of Kesslers left-wing roots is significant.

    Jason Kessler is the man who organized the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. One person is dead and at least twenty were injured when a car smashed into protestors who were on the road. There were some curious facts surrounding this event, so we decided to do some digging. What we found raises serious questions about who Jason Kessler is actually working for First of all, the ACLU defended Jason Kessler and forced the city to keep his permit in place. This was after the city raised concerns about the ability of Law Enforcement to keep Antifa, BLM,...

    Why does the press go crazy over a statement by President Trump that is patently true? [T]here is blame on both sides. Because left-wing violence is becoming a prominent feature of our political scene, and the Democratic Party press wants to cover it up. Murderers inspired by Black Lives Matter have attempted to kill, and in several instances have actually killed, policemen. Antifa fascists, doing their best Nazi brownshirt imitation, have rioted in cities around the country, smashing windows and attacking passers-by. And, of course, Democratic Party activist and Bernie Sanders campaign worker James Hodgkinson attempted to assassinate Congressional Republicans,...

    Baltimore City Council has voted to remove four Confederate monuments in the city. The move follows protesters pulling down a Confederate memorial in Durham, North Carolina after a deadly weekend of protests over another statue in Charlottesville, Virginia. The council still has to decide whether to destroy the monuments or move them to a museum because of their historical significance. We still emphatically do not want these to be placed on public display anywhere, council member Brandon Scott told WMAR. Scott, who introduced the resolution calling for the destruction of the monuments said, we should melt them down and use...

Secretaries of state — who are the top election officials in 40 states — told TheDCNF they were shocked to learn of the Russian hacking when Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials first divulged it at a June 21, 2017, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing. “We can’t find any secretaries of state who say they have been told they are part of this list of ‘targeted’ states.” said a spokeswoman for the National Association of Secretaries of...
