He entered a coma and now he has brain damage like a little girl.
I think I'm ready to side with the neocons. They can't even show respect and dignity to foreign visitors. Let's bomb North Korea and replace the regime before they get more and better weapons.

Jewish Groups Struggle To Gain White House Access Points Reader 06/18/2017 (Sun) 10:27:18 Id: 578749 [Preview] No. 1003 [Reply]

>Jewish American organizations long active in Washington politics are struggling to communicate with the Trump administration, scavenging through old Rolodexes and e-mail lists to find points of access into the president's small policy team.
>A traditional structure governed these communications before the Trump era: Presidents since Jimmy Carter have hired White House Jewish liaisons to serve as point men for the community. But the position has been vacant since January 20, and the White House has no plans to fill it, a senior administration official told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.
>The absence of a liaison has forced Jewish community activists to resort elsewhere within the government to raise their questions and concerns. But several other positions that have previously served as secondary access points also remain empty. The State Department's special envoy for monitoring and combating antisemitism– a congressionally mandated appointment– has not been filled; there is no ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, nor a special envoy for the Middle East peace process.
>"It was easier when there were liaisons specifically assigned to the Jewish community, and I'm hoping they will move in that direction— that they'll recognize the benefits of that," said Jason Isaacson, director of government and international affairs for the American Jewish Committee. "It's required going back to directories and old emails, tracking down people who are in positions of influence at a lower level and calling on them directly as opposed to going through a liaison office."
>Donald Trump renamed Barack Obama's Office of Public Engagement to its old name– the Office of Public Liaison– once he entered the White House, and has not appointed any constituency-specific posts. Several Jewish community leaders say that Jason Greenblatt, the president's special representative for international negotiations, is actually wearing two hats, leading the White House effort to restart talks between Israelis and Palestinians while also organizing the administration's contacts with the Jewish world.
>Greenblatt was behind the guest list for an Israeli Independence Day reception in April, which included more conservative-leaning Jewish groups, said one attendee. Tom Rose, a close confidante of Vice President Mike Pence, has become another critical connection for several Jewish organizations.
>Greenblatt may become the next Tevi Troy, a George W. Bush administration official who served in 2003 as both deputy cabinet secretary and Jewish liaison, said Nathan Diament, executive director for public policy for the Orthodox Union.
>"My experience so far is that its more similar to the Bush administration than to the Obama administration," said Diament, who attended the April reception. "The Obama administration had a person in the liaison office, but in the Bush administration, most of the time they did not have that."
>Troy's successor, Noam Neusner, said the liaison position was a vehicle for the president to relay his positions to the Jewish community.
>"There are policy making roles that are yet to be filled that are perhaps more critical in nature," said Neusner. "But they are right to want to express themselves. It's a good role to fill, as with any other of the liaison roles."



Sheriff David Clarke Rescinded Homeland Security Position Reader 06/18/2017 (Sun) 10:19:58 Id: 16bc85 [Preview] No. 1002 [Reply]
He "believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role."

>“Late Friday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. formally notified Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly that he had rescinded his acceptance of the agency’s offer to join DHS as an assistant secretary,” Craig Peterson, Clarke’s adviser, told The Washington Post.

>Peterson told the newspaper that Clarke still plans to help the Trump administration in some capacity, whether inside or outside of the federal government.

>“Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role,” Peterson said.

“The sheriff is reviewing options inside and outside of government,” Peterson said. “Sheriff Clarke told Secretary Kelly he is very appreciative of the tremendous opportunity the secretary was offering, and expressed his support for the secretary and the agency.”

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE FOR DIRECTOR OF THE FBI WHEN?!

EVERYBODY is talking about it. Even the (((Washington Post and New York Times))), who managed to slip some hit-piece bullshit into their articles.

ISIS ATTACKS ISRAEL FOR THE FIRST TIME Reader 06/17/2017 (Sat) 09:26:30 Id: b3a6ec [Preview] No. 997 [Reply]
http://www.newsweek.com/isis-claims-first-deadly-attack-israel-after-jerusalem-stabbing-626934

The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) claimed a deadly attack in Israel for the first time Friday, after three Palestinian men stabbed and killed an Israeli police officer in Jerusalem.

The attack took place in two adjacent areas near Damascus Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City. At one, a Palestinian fatally stabbed policewoman 23-year-old Hadas Malka. A short distance away, two Palestinians opened fire and tried to stab a group of Israeli police officers. Police shot them dead.

“With God’s help, we succeeded in carrying out an attack in the heart of Jerusalem, near the Temple Mount,” ISIS said in a statement on its Amaq news agency. It gave each attacker a nom-de-guerre, with each one holding the last name Al-Maqdisi. Maqdisi is an Arabic term for a Palestinian Jerusalemite.

“Soldiers of the caliphate” struck a “gathering of Jews,” the statement said. The attack “will not be the last,” it added.

Judicial Watch Files Lawsuit Against FBI in Federal Courts Reader 06/16/2017 (Fri) 23:06:47 Id: 8fc561 [Preview] No. 994 [Reply]
http://thegoldwater.com/news/3826-Comey-Removed-Files-Judicial-Watch-Files-Suit

>Due to certain controversies purported by biased mainstream media and obvious mistrust front the public towards James Comey, former and now fired FBI Director, Judicial Watch has sent a letter warning the now Acting Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe. The letter suggests they are proceeding with a demand to recover and then release the memos which Comey violated the law by illegally removing from the taxpayer funded Federal Bureau of Investigation.

>Comey took the memos, admittedly under Oath, and leaked them to the Press via outlets close to him. Such an act in the past would have most certainly brought criminal charges against Comey, who is an appointed public servant by elected officials.

>Tom Fortson, President of Judicial Watch, has cited that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is obligated by law under the Federal Records Act to recover the records.

>In Fitton’s letter of demand he wrote, “As you are well aware, former FBI Director James Comey gave sworn testimony last week before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Among other things, Mr. Comey confirmed that, while in office, he created various memoranda regarding his meetings with President Trump.”

>He continued in his recent letter to clarify that, “Mr. Comey also confirmed that, after his departure from the FBI, he provided at least some of these memoranda to a third party, Columbia Law School Professor Daniel Richman, for the purpose of leaking them to the Press. Various media outlets now have reported that Professor Richman has provided these memoranda to the FBI. It is unclear whether he still retains copies of the memoranda.”

>The general public feels as if Comey is a Traitor. Contrary to initial left wing media reports suggesting Trump has somehow violated his executive reach or overstepped his power in firing Comey, after Comey's explosive testimony admitting his role in the leaks President Trump has been vindicated. Silencing any and all critics with truth.

>Judicial Watch letter continued in saying, “These memoranda were created by Mr. Comey while serving as FBI director, were written on his FBI laptop, and concerned official government business. The fact that Mr. Comey removed these memoranda from the FBI upon his departure, apparently for the purpose of subsequently leaking them to the press confirms the FBI's failure to retain and properly manage its records in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”

>What Judicial Watch is suggesting that even if Comey is no longer employed by the Bureau the FBI is still directly responsible for the recovery of said memos.

>The letter didn't stop there, further underscoring this point by writing that “Even if Mr. Comey no longer has possession of these particular memoranda, as he now claims, some or all of these memoranda may still be in possession of a third party, such as Professor Richman, and must be recovered,” reads the letter.

>Fitton’s remarks hold water as Judicial Watch has been an advocate for a transparent government on countless occasions. In such it's built a highly respected opinion of itself from the general public and those with integrity in the government.

>In closing the letter Fitton’s Judicial Watch wrote, “Mr. Comey took government records and the FBI and Justice Department are obligated to get them back,” concluded Fitton. “The former FBI director isn’t above the law and current leadership of the FBI should stop protecting him and take action.”

>Judicial Watch has now filed a lawsuit in Federal Court citing the Federal Records Act as well as incompetence by the FBI for this inaction.



US Navy Sailor Thought Lost At Sea Found Hiding Reader 06/15/2017 (Thu) 22:51:55 Id: 60d6cd [Preview] No. 987 [Reply]
http://thegoldwater.com/news/3757-Peter-Mims-Not-Lost-at-Sea-Found-Hiding-in-Engine-Room

>A United States Navy Sailor presumed to have been lost at sea has been found hiding as a stow away within the vessel’s engine room.

>The Sailor who was considered lost at sea at first was a service member onboard the USS Shiloh. The missing Sailor triggered a massive search-and-rescue effort that prolonged the business of the entire fleet as well taking over fifty hours to complete. Such action of a missing crewmember is one that triggers the heartstrings of other members onboard as they refuse to leave another Sailor behind.

>Pentagon Officials have stated Gas Turbine Systems Technician (Mechanical) 3rd Class Peter Mims is expected to receive transport via helicopter off the ship and given a full medical and psychological evaluation. It's likely a common occurrence for some that cannot ascertain the stress endured of being on the open sea.

>Rear Admiral Charles Wilson, Commander of the Carrier Strike Group 5 and Task Force 70, said, “We are thankful to have found our missing shipmate and appreciate all the hard work of our sailors and Japanese partners in searching for him.” in a statement posted to the 7th Fleet website earlier.



Possible. Dirty Bomb Forces Coast Guard Terminal Evacuation Reader 06/15/2017 (Thu) 08:46:31 Id: 262342 [Preview] No. 985 [Reply]
http://thegoldwater.com/news/3714-Mass-Evacuation-Possible-Dirty-Bomb-Found-Aboard-Vessel-at-Wando-SC-Terminal

>In Mount Pleasant, South Carolina the United States Coast Guard have stated that law enforcement officials from the Federal, State, and local levels are investigating a threat at Wando Terminal.
>On Wednesday The US Coast Guard released a statement saying the FBI is investigating a report of a "dirty bomb" aboard a vessel within range of the Terminal.
>Typically something only seen in film or military training exercises to prevent catastrophe in the event of an attack, a dirty bomb is a series of low level of conventional Explosives that have been carefully created radioactive material for maximum collateral damage.
>Emergency responders at the scene however have stated that as of now there has been no detection of radiation in the area. This doesn't mean the threat is overhyped it simply means they cannot locate any leak of radiation. It could however be a well made device that wouldn't show conductive radioactivity results until further examination.
>In the initial report put out by the Coast Guard they've stated that around 8 p.m. authorities had been notified of the existence of a potential threat. The threat lay in a shipping container aboard the vessel Maersk Memphis.
>The Coast Guard officials stated, "The Maersk Memphis is currently moored at Charleston's Wando terminal which has been evacuated while bomb detection units from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies investigate the threat.”
>The Coast Guard also proceeded to state that ”a unified command has been established to oversee the coordinated response.”

Can Black Lives Matter Be Sued? Reader 06/14/2017 (Wed) 21:59:03 Id: 9c4100 [Preview] No. 982 [Reply]
http://thegoldwater.com/news/3670-Above-the-Law-Black-Lives-Matters-Can-t-be-Sued

>In Baton Rouge, Louisiana controversies are swirling around the idea that Black Lives Matter can be sued in a court of law.

>An unidentified Louisiana police officer who was injured in a protest has filed a Federal Lawsuit against the group due to the injuries he sustained as per their responsibility. That hasn't stopped left wing activists and attorneys from trying to suggest the lawsuit is invalid however.

>The insanity of the the left seems to have a mantra that everything they do they need not be accountable for. The claims being tossed about are that Black Lives Matter is a movement, not an organization, so it bears no responsibility for any actions taken by it's members.

>It does however participate with a 501c3 nonprofit status which under the IRS statutes state that it is not allowed to engage in political activism against specific parties or political candidates. That statue is often times violated as Black Lives Matter assists in the protests of right leaning candidates by organizing it’s membership to participate under the guise of another subsidiary of the left.

>In Federal Court a judge is set to decide whether to allow or dismiss the lawsuit brought against Black Lives Matter and DeRay Mckesson, who is a Baltimore-based activist. Mr. Mckesson was just one of two hundred protesters arrested after the July 2016 shooting death of Alton Sterling. Many will remember the Sterling incident caused extreme riots and controversy with BLM claiming him as an “innocent black man who didn't do nothing wrong” that was shot by a white officer during a very physical and resisting altercation outside a gas station where he later died.

>William Gibbons of whom is representing Mr. McKesson stated in his court filings that “Black Lives Matter doesn't have a governing body, dues-paying members, bylaws or even a central location." William Gibbons continued to argue it's a "community of interest."

>The filing went on to say, "However, even as a community of interest, it would be nearly impossible to ascribe a single common purpose or interest to the hundreds of thousands of different people, many with different goals and motives, who have protested, posted online, or acted under the 'Black Lives Matter' banner.”

>However the unidentified officer who has brought forth the suit against BLM and Mckesson has suggested that someone took a “rock like substance”, possibly a brick or mortar or piece of concrete, and struck him directly in his face with it where he had substantial injury.

>The officer's attorneys have sued not just Mckesson and BLM but several other unnamed individuals that it believes are directly responsible for the increase in the violence as they are all on film barking orders at the savage protesters.

>One of the officer's attorneys is Donna Grodner, who is urging the US District Judge Brian Jackson to deny Mckesson’s attempts to have the case thrown out of court with dismissal. She argues that BLM is in fact an organization and not a movement because it in fact has a “thriving, if not very wealthy, unincorporated association that solicits donations and sells T-shirts for profit.”

>These are all known facts about Black Lives Matter and if such a gross miscarriage of justice is allowed then they may essentially be able to commit domestic terrorism without fear of repercussions at all. She went on in court filings to say, "If Black Lives Matter does not exist, it should not be raising money or collecting millions in donations.”

>I most certainly agree with her assertion and any legal analyst or prosecutor would attempt to destroy the arguments of the defense in this case in open courts. One of the fears however is that the radical left will apply pressure to this judge to toss out the case before deliberations ever begin.


Reader 06/14/2017 (Wed) 22:00:05 Id: 9c4100 [Preview] No. 984 del
>The unidentified officer who is the plaintiff in the suit is being protected via anonymity as "Officer John Doe" in the suit. The reason for the protecting is citing the July 2016 sniper attack that killed five Dallas police officers and a shooting 10 days later that killed three law-enforcement officers in Baton Rouge as reasons for concealment.

>Mckesson and 80 other violent BLM protesters actually successfully sued the city after their arrests. Yes, these savage domestic terrorists won a lawsuit for committing violence and being arrested.

>Last month, a federal judge preliminarily approved a proposed settlement of the class action lawsuit that would offer payout to the thugs. Mckesson is one of nearly 80 arrested protesters who are eligible for cash payouts which will range from $500 to $1,000 if the settlement gets the court's final approval. The reason cited for the approval is excessive force and violation of the violent protesters Constitutional rights. Absolutely appalling considering the hundred thousand dollars of estimated damage done to the city from this one specific protest.

>Larry Klayman, the founder of the conservative group Freedom Watch, filed a Federal Lawsuit in Texas last year against Mckesson and Black Lives Matter for their roles played in the Dallas Sniper Shooting deaths of five officers. Klayman also sued Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in that same suit accusing them of inciting a hate filled ‘race war’ against white members of law enforcement for encouraging Black Lives Matter.

>On June 2nd that suit was tossed out as a radical leftists Obama Apologist judge said the plaintiffs didn't provide substantial proof for their “proposition” that Black Lives Matter is an entity capable of being sued at all. An appeal is planned in that case.

Jeff Sessions personally asked Congress to let him prosecute medical marijuana providers Reader 06/13/2017 (Tue) 12:29:23 Id: c84430 [Preview] No. 979 [Reply]
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/06/13/jeff-sessions-personally-asked-congress-to-let-him-prosecute-medical-marijuana-providers/?utm_term=.cfe621c5a068

Jeff Sessions personally asked Congress to let him prosecute medical marijuana providers

>Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking congressional leaders to undo federal medical marijuana protections that have been in place since 2014, according to a May letter that became public Monday.

>The protections, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, prohibit the Justice Department from using federal funds to prevent certain states "from implementing their own State laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana."

>In his letter, first obtained by Tom Angell of Massroots.com and verified independently by The Washington Post, Sessions argued that the amendment would "inhibit [the Justice Department's] authority to enforce the Controlled Substances Act." He continues:

>I believe it would be unwise for Congress to restrict the discretion of the Department to fund particular prosecutions, particularly in the midst of an historic drug epidemic and potentially long-term uptick in violent crime. The Department must be in a position to use all laws available to combat the transnational drug organizations and dangerous drug traffickers who threaten American lives.

>Sessions's citing of a "historic drug epidemic" to justify a crackdown on medical marijuana is at odds with what researchers know about current drug use and abuse in the United States. The epidemic Sessions refers to involves deadly opiate drugs, not marijuana. A growing body of research (acknowledged by the National Institute on Drug Abuse) has shown that opiate deaths and overdoses actually decrease in states with medical marijuana laws on the books.
