Rosenstein Leaving DOJ — Allegedly Offered To Wear Wire Near Trump

H/T Flag And Cross.

I personally will be glad to see this weasel-faced rat bastard go.

I will only believe he is gone when someone besides Fake News CNN says he is gone.

He gone!

It was a long time coming, but it finally happened.

Not long after Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has decided to leave, too.

This news broke late Monday night on the heels of Rosenstein allegedly admitting that he’d wear a wire when he was around POTUS

BREAKING: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to leave the Justice Department in mid-March

The news comes after revelations that Rosenstein allegedly offered to wear a wire around the president

From CNN:

The No. 2 official at the department has become one of the highest profile figures in the Trump administration given his oversight of the Russia investigation and the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in 2017.

CNN had previously reported that Rosenstein was planning to step down after Bill Barr was confirmed as attorney general, but the precise timing was fluid. A departure next month could potentially serve as another signal that Mueller’s work is coming to a close.

The Justice official who confirmed Rosenstein’s current thinking disputed the idea that the timing of his departure has anything to do with the latest revelations from former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, emphasizing that the plan was always to have Rosenstein help with the transition for his successor and then leave, as Barr previewed during his Senate confirmation hearing.

The day before this news came out, Trump noted:

Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught…..

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that Rosenstein and McCabe would be investigated over a “bureaucratic coup” against Trump.

From Daily Caller:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham pledged Sunday to hold a hearing to determine whether top Justice Department and FBI official discussed a “bureaucratic coup” to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Graham said in an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he is willing to subpoena Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to answer questions about an alleged discussion to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

McCabe claims that Rosenstein brought up the idea of using the Constitution to remove Trump during a meeting of FBI and Justice Department officials on May 16, 2017, around a week after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director.

Transgender Rules Causing School Girls to Avoid School Bathrooms Out of Fear

H/T Godfather Politics.

We need to stop letting these freakshow minorities set any policy.

Like it or not there are only TWO Genders and they are male and female.

Girls are increasingly refusing to use bathrooms in schools over fears raised due to transgender bathroom rules forced on school kids.

According to the Daily Mail “Schoolgirls are too afraid to use unisex toilets over fears of ‘period shaming’ from boys and sexual harassment,”and the lack of privacy.

To satisfy trans activists and to assuage the hard feelings of a tiny handful of students, the great majority are now put out. Isn’t it just like liberal policy to make things worse?

But, many schools in Britain are starting to turn back to designated bathrooms and are ditching the unisex facilities because of the complaints.

Also, according to the report, even more people are upset over the unisex bathrooms:

The group found pupils, parents and staff are often too embarrassed to complain about the unisex loos and has called for a policy to be reviewed.

Spokesperson Helen Raynor told the newspaper that no schoolgirl should feel like they are unable to use the toilet.

She said: “No child should avoid school, or stop drinking water so they don’t wee. Girls cannot ‘hold periods in.’”

Government officials have been taken offguard by the reports but said they would review the situation.

The unisex bathrooms became all the rage for British schools when a left-wing, numbskull teacher in Stockport, near Manchester, began a crusade for the idea in 2000.

Schools quickly jumped on the bandwagon, but now the idea has turned sour as kids and parents are finally beginning to speak up about how negatively the policy has affected their children.

Isn’t it just like the British to suffer with stupidity for nearly 20 years before finally speaking up?

Why Second Amendment Supporters Should Fix NICS

H/T AmmoLand.

NICS is deeply flawed and needs to be fixed and the laws concerning illegal firearms possession needs to be enforced.

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- The recent shooting in Illinois is one that need not have happened. A convicted felon (a category long prohibited from even touching a firearm) acquired a gun and killed five people before cops took him down. In this case, the shooter (who we will not name, so as to not provide additional notoriety for his actions) had been convicted of a felony in 1995, but still got an Illinois Firearm Owners ID (FOID) in 2014.

Like the Sutherland Springs shooting, where the shooter passed a background check despite a clearly disqualifying criminal conviction, this was a clear failure of the National Instant Check System (NICS). A failure that should not have happened – and yet, what do we get from the usual suspects?

The same old calls for gun bans. They’ll add red flag laws. Or maybe, they’ll demand universal background checks. But they don’t enforce the laws they have, and as a result, there is a trail of preventable carnage that is all too often blamed on Second Amendment supporters.

When rapper Chris Brown was arrested for assault for pointing a gun at a stripper in 2016, he could have been hammered on federal gun charges, big time. How big is big time? Try just 40 years for violating 18 USC 922(g)1 and 18 USC 922(g)3 as both a convicted felon and a regular marijuana user. Then tack on a mandatory seven for brandishing a firearm while committing a crime.

What does that mean for Illinois? Well, if the laws on the books were properly enforced and the people who ran the background check and the database had been minimally competent, the Sutherland Springs shooter would have likely been in jail, five people would be alive, and we wouldn’t be dealing with another round of anti-Second Amendment extremists trying to take our rights. Worse, those same extremists seem to be okay with people getting shot, as long as they can call for gun bans.

In the minds of those anti-Second Amendment extremists, the people who should be punished for the failures of the State of Illinois to find a felony conviction that should have disqualified the shooter from even touching a gun aren’t the bureaucrats who screwed up. It is the law-abiding citizens who never shot up a workplace, school, or other public venue who are instead told to give up their rights, and when Second Amendment supporters object, they get called domestic terrorists, child killers, or “gun zealots.”

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan)
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan)

Just recently, in the debate over a “universal background check” bill in the House of Representatives, anti-Second Amendment zealots shot down an amendment that would have required a notification to be sent to Immigration and Customs Enforcement when a person in the United States illegally tries to buy a firearm from a Federal Firearms Licensee.

Keep in mind, 18 USC 922(g) also covers illegal immigrants. Violation of that provision is a ten-year felony. But it seems that Jerrold Nadler doesn’t want to target real criminals – he just wants to punish the law-abiding citizens who do nothing wrong, proving why his ascension to the chairmanship of the House Judiciary Committee is a nightmare for law-abiding gun owners. Does he want illegal immigrants to acquire firearms illegally?

Want to bet that when a high-profile shooting is carried out by someone who is illegally in the country, that he will happily use that to push through new legislation targeting the wrong people, rather than focus on actual solutions. Think he will be held accountable by the anti-Second Amendment media types that will parrot his demands that law-abiding citizens surrender more of their rights? Don’t bet your mortgage payment on that.

One way to help discredit anti-Second Amendment extremists is to show America that they have no interest in anything that solves the real problem, but just want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens. So, Second Amendment supporters should put forth a NICS fix that adds all disqualifying convictions as well as tying it in to eVerify. There would be a catch: This improved NICS (call it INICS) would also override all state licensing and/or waiting period schemes [blocking New Jersey and other states from making money off the system and adding delays].

I know, some will object to fixing NICS, and view it as an infringement of our Second Amendment rights. But if you’re understanding the need for strategy and tactics, you’d recognize this as making a major improvement for many in states like California, New Jersey and New York – in essence taking a slice out of their restrictive gun laws – as well as undercutting those who would take our rights away.

That’s good news for Second Amendment supporters all around.

Second Amendment, Supreme Court, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, February 2019

H/T AmmoLand.

Hopefully, some Devine intervention will make an opening on the Supreme Court.

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- For eight years after the McDonald v. Chicago decision, the Supreme Court refused to enforce the Second Amendment.

President Trump has appointed two constitutionalist and originalist Justices, Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh. After those appointments, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the first Second Amendment firearms case since McDonald:  New York Rifle & Pistol Association v. NYC. The official decision to accept the case was on 22 January 2019.

The next question was, when will the oral arguments for the case be heard?  The possibilities began in April in 2019. If oral arguments were not heard in April, they would be heard in October or later.

Second Amendment supporters are justifiably frustrated with the slow pace of judicial enforcement of Second Amendment rights. Many believe some courts have been deliberately slowing down the process, hoping for the election of a president hostile to the Second Amendment.

The oral argument calendar for the Supreme Court for April has been published. New York Rifle & Pistol Association is not scheduled for April.

This could be significant because the oldest justice on the Court is Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg has been hostile to the Second Amendment. She believes it does not apply to the modern world because it is old.

Justice Ginsburg voted against the Heller decision. She voted against the McDonald decision. Her opinion on the Second Amendment is clear.  From armsandthelaw.com:

“If the court had properly interpreted the Second Amendment, the Court would have said that amendment was very important when the nation was new,” she said. “It gave a qualified right to keep and bear arms, but it was for one purpose only — and that was the purpose of having militiamen who were able to fight to preserve the nation.””

Ruth’s position is to define the Second Amendment out of existence, without any real argument, because she believes it has no purpose in modern society. The fallback position is that the Second Amendment does not apply to individuals. That is the essential Progressive position on the entire Constitution. It is old. Therefore we can ignore it.

Justice Ginsburg has been recovering from cancer surgery that removed one of the lobes of one of her lungs. She is said to be recovering satisfactorily.

The next oral arguments are on Tuesday, 19 February 2019. Reuters has reported that Justice Ginsburg was at the Supreme Court on Friday, 15 February 2019,  for a private conference to decide whether or not to take a case deciding if the Executive Branch can add a question to the 2020 census that has been on the census before.

The plaintiffs claim the question, about citizenship, might incentivize minorities to avoid being counted on the census. From reuters.com:

Friday’s conference proved highly significant, with the justices agreeing to decide the fate of a bid by President Donald Trump’s administration to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, which opponents say will scare immigrant communities from participating, leading to an undercount.

No pictures of Justice Ginsburg, in private or public, taken since December 15, 2018, have been published, that I have found. Justice Ginsburg is the oldest Justice on the Supreme Court. Her birthday is on 15 March. Next month; she will be 86 years old.

Eight months from now is the earliest oral arguments will be heard for the New York Rifle & Pistol Association. When you are 86, in failing health, eight months is a long time.

American ISIS Bride Who Called For Spilling American’s Blood On Memorial Day Wants Back In The U.S.

H/T Clash Daily.

She left and the married three goat humping terrorist she should not be allowed back into America.

I know where she should go to Gitmo.

She’s really sorry and wants to come home. Should she be allowed back into the United States?

Hoda Muthana left her home in Alabama four years ago to join ISIS in Syria. She was 19-years old at the time. Now that she’s been captured by Kurdish forces, she says she was ‘brainwashed’ and ‘made a big mistake’ by becoming a jihadi bride. She wants to come back to the United States.

An American jihadi bride living in a refugee camp after fleeing ISIS‘s last stand in Syria is begging the US to allow her to return home.

Hoda Muthana, 24, left Hoover, Alabama in 2014, in order to join ISIS in Syria, where she would later call for US Muslims to ‘spill all of the blood’ by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events.

Now, having lost two of her three jihadi fighter husbands and living in a squalid refugee camp, she claims to have been brainwashed and made a ‘big mistake’ when she travelled to Syria.

During the four years in Syria, the former University of Alabama student was married three times. Her first husband, an Australian jihadist whom she married shortly after her arrival in Raqqa, was killed while fighting for the terrorist group. Her second husband, a Tunisian man, was killed in a conflict in Mosul. This second husband is the father of Muthana’s 18-month old son, Adam. Muthana married for the third time last year, this time to a Syrian man.

Muthana and her son are in a refugee camp in northern Syria near the Iraqi border. The Guardian reports that she is the lone American among 1,500 foreign women and children in the camp.

In 2015, Muthana was very active on Twitter spreading hate against non-Muslims and openly calling for terror attacks on U.S. soil.

In a 2015 tweet she wrote: ‘You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!

‘Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades..go on drive by’s + spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n drive all over them. Kill them.’ [sic]

Now, she is living in the tent-city that is al-Hol – also known as al-Hawl – a refugee camp in northern Syria some 200 miles away from ISIS’s ‘last front’ near the village of Baghouz by the Iraqi border.

Her tweets were so vicious that she was condemned by an Imam affiliated with CAIR. Watch as he says that she ‘will have to answer to God’ for her actions:

Conditions in the refugee camp are pretty bad for women. They cannot go anywhere without an escort, the healthcare is sub-standard, and one Swedish detainee says that the Russians and Tunisians are making life hell for them. She claims, ‘If you go outside the tent without your burqa, or say something to the management, they beat you or your children up. They threaten to burn your tent.

Listen to her now:

She is now counting on the kindheartedness of Americans to overlook her ‘mistakes’ like calling on terror attacks on Memorial Day.

‘I believe that America gives second chances. I want to return and I’ll never come back to the Middle East. America can take my passport and I wouldn’t mind.’

AOC And/Or Her Chief Of Staff May Have Committed A Major Ethics Violation

H/T The Lid.

With the DemocRats running the committees the whole matter with Alexandria Occasional-Cortex or her chief of staff will be swept under the rug. 

2txpin-1200x630

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, was found to have a government email address. Her team was quick to say that Roberts was not a member of AOC’s staff. Therefore he’s not earning a salary. But their denial doesn’t really pass the smell test. If they’re being honest and Roberts is not on the payroll, it’s a different violation of Congressional ethics,

From Daily Mail:

Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti also argued the move was normal for a spouse or partner.

He wrote: ‘He’s not paid. We have no volunteers in the office. He’s not doing any government work. He can see her calendar just like spouses/partners/family members in other congressional office.

But something smells rotten in the state of Denmark.

You see, Roberts is actually listed in Alexandria’s staff directory, which is not normal for a spouse or partner.

That T-Shirt features an image of Subhas Chandra Bose.  Bose created the Indian Legion (consisting of some 4500 soldiers) out of Indian prisoners of war who had previously fought for the British in North Africa before their capture by Nazi forces. The Indian Legion was attached to the Wehrmacht and later transferred to the Waffen SS. Its members swore the following allegiance to Hitler and Bose:

“I swear by God this holy oath that I will obey the leader of the German race and state, Adolf Hitler, as the commander of the German armed forces in the fight for India, whose leader is Subhas Chandra Bose”

I’m sure Saikat Chakrabarti knows all about the man who is on his t-shirt. If he doesn’t well, then he is an idiot.

Actually, if AOC’s boyfriend is in the congressional directory but not an employee,  then Chakrabarti who handles creating emails for staff, is the one who violated congressional ethics.

Mexico Deports MS-13 Gang Members Found In Caravan

H/T Godfather Politics.

Even the people in Mexica does not want this MS-13 scum un their country.

Mexico deports MS-13 gang members found in the caravan near the Texas border.

The governor of Coahuila Miguel Riquelme Solis announced that among the members of the Migrant Caravan that is currently in a shelter in Piedras Negras, there are members of the “Mara Salvatrucha” criminal group otherwise known as MS-13, who were identified and deported.

Washington Examiner:

Mexican officials say MS-13 gang members from El Salvador infiltrated a group of migrants that traveled in a caravan from Central America to the country’s border with Texas.

Miguel Riquelme, governor of Mexico’s Coahuila state, said Mara Salvatrucha members were hiding in the group of around 1,600 migrants staying at a federally operated facility in Piedras Negras, Cohauila, and were recently identified by government officials.

“We have data that there are agitators inside the shelter, that there are members of the caravan who are provoking others, some of them belong to the Mara Salvatrucha , some others who bring criminal records in their country and what we have been doing is deporting them directly with Migration,” Riquelme told local reporters, according to an English language translation.

At least twice this past week, a few dozen people violently tried to break out of the heavily guarded facility and fought federal police.

Twenty-seven who took part in the fight were deported, according to Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber, a U.S. law enforcement official who was informed of the removals by Piedras Negras officials.

“They got deported right away,” Schmerber said in a phone call Friday.

Piedras Negras Mayor Claudio Bres on Thursday said 25 people were removed from the country.

The group of migrants arrived on buses in the Mexican border city Feb. 4 and have been held there as they wait to make asylum claims at U.S. ports of entry. More

Do you think anyone in Mexico will protest against these deportations? Probably not. Therefore, it’s probably safe to say that the Mexicans have more common sense than any of our so-called Democrats.

These gang members are worse than most animals. Most animals kill for food, to defend themselves, and to protect their offspring. Rarely do animals kill for sport.
