Nunes is having a Contempt of Congress resolution drafted against FBI Director and Deputy Attorney G

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is fed up with the FBI and Justice Department. Despite repeated attempts to get basic information from them regarding the Steele Dossier, they simply are not complying.

“At this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves,” Nunes said.

Subpoenas from August have been disregarded. Now, Nunes is demanding they produce all documents and schedule meetings with several people who have been part of the investigation by January 3.

“As a result of the numerous delays and discrepancies that have hampered the process of subpoena compliance, the committee no longer credits the representations made by DOJ and/or the FBI regarding these matters,” Nunes said.

The last resort is being prepared: Contempt of Congress resolutions against FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. If the demands of the committee are not met, it’s assumed the resolutions will be issued, putting both the DOJ and FBI in peculiar situations.

    Sounds like the latest attempt by Trump’s cronies to circumvent our laws and shut down the Mueller investigation.

    Should Trump succeed in shutting down the Mueller investigation before it completes, he deserves impeachment on the grounds of treason and attempting a coup of the US government.

    He has already tried to shut down the Judiciary branch with his attacks on all Judicial credibility and their authority to question his edicts.

    He has attacked (and continues to attack) Congressional authority and credibility.

    Now he’s using his tame Congressional lapdogs (already discredited for improperly sharing classified information with the subject of an investigation and for attempting to bias (or end) congressional investigations into Trump’s behavior) to attempt to discredit and disgrace the FBI and his own DOJ.

    If Trump succeeds in discrediting the Federal law enforcement agencies as he’s attempted to discredit our intelligence agencies, our courts, and our Congress, that will leave ONLY Trump in a position of authority and de facto dictator of the US (at least in his mind and the minds of his red-hat followers).

    It’s no wonder Trump’s credibility continues to fall both domestically and internationally and why he is becoming the most loathed president in history.

    People once thought Obama would go down as the worst president in history. As people continue to wake up to Trump’s actions, Trump is on-track to surpass Obama’s illegitimacy and destruction of the US before his first mid-terms.

    This is not hatred of Trump speaking (though I have no respect for a man with Trump’s proven and demonstrated lack of morals, ethics or humanity) – this is my love of country and my rejection of a President (no matter how he was put into office) – that is systematically destorying the institutions that form the basis of the trust and faith the American people have in our government while turning American against American by appealing to the worst elements of human nature: greed, sloth, envy, hatred, ignorance, and intolerance.

      Are you really not aware of all of the crimes that are being uncovered, using solid documentation and testimony evidence, of what has gone on in the DOJ and FBI under Obama? The corruption in the Obama administration was systemic at the upper levels, and this will be a huge scandal, encompassing Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation, the email scandal, the FBI’s obstruction of justice, the Clinton campaign’s complicity in the dossier, the FBI’s illegal use of opposition research to secure a FISA warrant to spy on the other party’s candidate and the transition team, the illegal unmasking and leaking of names to the media by Obama officials, and I could go on. This is not an attempt to stop Mueller. It’s an attempt to restore the integrity of our most powerful legal and law enforcement organizations, and to prevent such powerful organizations from turning that power against private citizens and a sitting president, as has been done. Trump is staying out of this. It’s Congress, Inspector General Horowitz (an Obama appointee), AG Sessions and FBI director Wray who are spearheading these investigations, not Trump.

      If you’re getting your news from CNN and MSNBC, you definitely need to head over to Fox News for a few days and get your eyes opened, because the kind of conspiracy stuff you’re talking about has nothing to do with reality. Shutting down the judiciary? Attacking the Congress?? Did you not see the celebration of the tax bill at the WH last week? Trump and the congress are doing just fine, and are already planning their next steps for 2018. And I’m not sure how a president ‘shuts down’ the judiciary. We have a thing called the Constitution that prevents that. And just so you know, the president can’t realistically lead a coup against himself and his administration–that has to come from outside.

      Seriously, get yourself some real news.

Possible hate crime draws yawns from media as Oghaleoghene Atuno allegedly targets white children with vehicle

Alleged hate crime draws yawns from media as Oghaleoghene Atuno allegedly targets white children wit

Have you heard the news report about a 21-year-old African-American male, Oghaleoghene Atuno, who targeted two white children with his vehicle? Unless you’re watching brief clips on local Denver news, you probably haven’t.

Atuno has been charged with attempted murder and child abuse while his alleged victims have been hospitalized after the brutal attack. Surveillance video shows him circling a cul-de-sac several times near Falcon Middle School in Aurora, Colorado, before driving his vehicle onto the sidewalk to strike the two children, age 11 and 12. One of the young boys, Josh Piazza, is still in the hospital with a fractured skull.

The circumstantial evidence seems to point to this being a textbook example of a hate crime. Atuno appeared to be circling the cul-de-sac near a school searching for a victim. When he spotted two Caucasian children, he drove his vehicle towards them onto the sidewalk. After hitting them, he drove off immediately. He claims he didn’t know the victims and his reason for fleeing the scene immediately was because he was scared, according to police.

Attempted murder against children he didn’t know after circling a cul-de-sac several times near a middle school – the math seems to add up to only a few possible conclusions and hate crime would be the most obvious. Yet this isn’t getting any attention from the media and prosecutors have thus far declined to use the “hate crime” tag for enhanced sentencing should he be found guilty.

Hate crimes of all types are hideous. When a person’s actual or perceived race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, physical or mental disability, or sexual orientation are used as determining factors prompting a crime against them, it’s a hate crime. Whether or not Atuno was motivated by racial hatred is currently unknown, but we may never know because it is not being treated as a potential hate crime by prosecutors or law enforcement. Imagine if a Caucasian man had circled around an African-American neighborhood searching for targets before running over two African-American children. The press would be clamoring all over itself about it being a hate crime.

As our nation becomes increasingly divided, it’s necessary that we put an end to bigotry from every side. Caucasians are not immune from being victims of hate crimes by law, but media narratives refuse to accept it as a possibility.

Sign the petition demanding an investigation of the investigators

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian hacking of the 2016 election has been completed and the investigation’s report has been released, we have more questions than we have answers.

Why was it started in the first place? It seems circular reasoning and opposition research were the only pieces of “evidence” used to justify extensive spying on the Trump campaign and the subsequent investigation. This does not clear the threshold of viable suspicion necessary for FISA warrants and clearly was not an appropriate starting point upon which to launch an investigation.

Why was it allowed to continue for so long? The report indicates early on, the investigation saw it was extremely unlikely they would find evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. Moreover, the report demonstrates the Russians were acting of their own accord to “hack” the elections, but were unsuccessful in generating enough manipulative propaganda to sway a significant chunk of voters.

Were political motivations at play? At this point, the answer seems obvious. From President Obama’s administration to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to left-leaning elements within the FBI itself, it’s conspicuous that attempts to not only manufacture wrongdoing by candidate Trump but also to hide wrongdoing by candidate Clinton were in full effect.

Two years and $30 million in taxpayer dollars should have yielded answers. It did not. The reason isn’t that there were no answers to be found. It’s that they were looking in the wrong places. It’s time to look in the right places. Sign this petition.

Murder of sexually harassed Bangladeshi student Nusrat Jahan Rafi goes unnoticed by the left

Murder of sexually harassed Bangladeshi student Nusrat Jahan Rafi goes unnoticed by the left

Nusrat Jahan Rafi died because she spoke out against a crime. She was murdered by her fellow Muslim adherents, some of whom were students who were possibly put through the same sexual attacks she was experiencing at the hands of her teacher. Despite this clear representation of the backwards nature of her situation, we have heard nothing from leftist politicians or alleged women’s advocates.

Nothing.

She allegedly being touched inappropriately by the head teacher at her Islamic school and reported it to the authorities. Following the arrest of the teacher, she was lured to the top of a building and told by a large group of burqa-clad individuals who demanded she retract her police report. When she said she wouldn’t, they dowsed her in kerosene and lit her on fire, then tried to make it appear as if she committed suicide in shame.

She survived, recorded a video naming some who attacked her, then died 10 days after the attack.

Opinion

Honor is very much embedded into the teachings of Quran. It’s quite sad that interpretations of what is entailed in honor rarely mean a woman’s right to protect herself or bring justice to those who harm her, particularly in areas where fundamental Islam is practiced and preached.

But what’s really disappointing is the lack of a response by the very people who claim to defend Islam in America. The profess to be opposed to hate crimes, then are silent when crimes like this are committed. Is this not a hate crime? Was this young lady not victimized because of her faith? By those who profess her faith?

The hypocrisy from the left when real victims are harmed is disgusting.

Quote

“Incredibly sad and difficult to share. In my experience, most people don’t want this knowledge, but not talking about these crimes only helps perpetrators.” – Soraya Chemaly

Final Thoughts

Nusrat Jahan Rafi bravery and tragedy are both being ignored by American activists and politicians who claim to be advocates for Muslim women. If this isn’t the type of persecution that should be heard, what is?
