“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American…”

 

(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Several lawmakers are asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate former Obama officials, including former FBI Director James Comey, for alleged violations of federal statutes.

Interview with Representative / Congressman on the House Judiciary Committee Ron DeSantis by Brian Kilmeade on the Fox News Fox and Friends program Wednesday April 18 2018 4/18/2018. [*** There is more interesting content in the description I will post after the McGhee cross post.]

 

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., along with 10 other congressmen, sent a letter to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, saying there is evidence that Obama-era officials partook in corruption and even treason.

 

“The investigations into the Hillary Clinton and the Presidential campaign revealed egregious levels of misconduct and mishandling of sensitive information,” Gosar said in a statement.

 

Comey’s deliberate refusal to investigate Clinton’s misuse of a personal email system “suggests improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda,” Gosar said in the letter.

 

Comey’s recently published memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” is also considered “questionable conduct” because of its detailed alleged conversations with President Trump, even confidential ones.

 

According to Gosar, this suggests Comey was responsible for sensitive leaks to the media, since he had already admitted to asking “a friend to share the content with the reporter.”

 

Such behavior is treasonous, the legislators said.

 

The lawmakers also want Hillary Clinton investigated, specifically her former presidential campaign’s connection to the Washington firm Fusion GPS, which led research into potential collusion between Russia and Trump, ultimately leading to the controversial Steele dossier.

 

Clinton disguised payments to Fusion GPS, violating the Federal Election Commission’s statutes.

 

The Steele dossier eventually led to an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and Russia, which Gosar says is unfounded since the dossier was based on “false and unverified” information and funded by illegal means.

 

“The actions of these government officials outlined in our letter point to evidence of corruption and possible treason. It’s time these unelected bureaucrats stop hiding behind their titles and start being held to the same standards as every other American.”

Gosar said he wants everyone connected to the Steele dossier investigated, including FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counsel Lisa Page, who frequently had conversations via text about how they could undermine Trump’s presidential campaign and secure a Clinton win.

 

Strzok and Page also allegedly assisted Clinton in hiding her misuse of her personal email server, in which it’s believed she compromised confidential communications.

 

The Wall Street Journal reported in January that, “the latest texts show the FBI also eliminated evidence that Mrs. Clinton compromised high-level communications.”

 

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that these potential violations of law are vetted properly,” the Congress members’ letter stated.

*** Interesting text from the above Youtube video description section:

 

Congressman / Rep on the House Judiciary Committee Ron DeSantis said all of the following:

 

Remember, he (Former F.B.I. Director James Comey) testified to the Congress that he did not make any decision regarding Secretary Clinton until after she was interviewed. He was asked that specifically by one of my colleagues. And, yet the evidence that’s come out since then demonstrates that actually they made this determination months before not only interviewing Secretary Clinton but also interviewing a number of key witnesses. And, so the lack of candor with the Congress is something that needs to be investigated.

 

So, here’s the issue with Hillary Clinton: You notice, they (the Mueller Special Counsel) are supposedly going after (President Trump’s Attorney) Michael Cohen for an FEC (Federal Election Commission) violation because of this non-disclosure payment (to Stormy Daniels). Now, that’s not really a theory that’s been tried before…I mean, it seems a little odd to me…but if that is potentially an offense…Well, is it (Hillary Clinton and her campaign) camouflaging these payments? What they (Hillary Clinton and her campaign) did was they paid from the Clinton campaign to a law firm Perkins Coie and then Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS Christopher Steel and that’s how the (phony Russian) Dossier was developed. So, they effectively disguised the fact that they were funding the Dossier. That’s not the way the Federal Election laws are supposed to work…You’re supposed to disclose your expenditures. So, if you (Mueller and his Special Counsel team) are going after (President Trump’s attorney) Cohen, why isn’t anybody also looking at how the Clintons handled this?

 

With regard to Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, we raise concerns regarding her decision to threaten with reprisal the former F.B.I. informant who tried to come forward in 2016 with insight into the Uranium One deal. He (the F.B.I. informant) testified in front of the Congress in the committees that he was threatened by Lynch’s Justice Department. We think that’s a serious issue and we think it deserves further investigation.

 

With regard to Former Acting Director of the F.B.I. Andrew McCabe, if they’re going to go after people like (Lieutenant General) Michael Flynn for a false statement to the F.B.I. on really a tangential fact that wasn’t material to any criminal offenses, but yet you have the deputy director (Andrew McCabe)…Remember, he initiated the investigation of Michael Flynn. You have the deputy director (Andrew McCabe) lying under oath…Is there going to be a similar case brought against him or do we have two different sets of rules for people?

 

With regard to top counterintelligence F.B.I. agent, Peter Strzok, and senior F.B.I. lawyer Lisa Page, if you look at those text messages, it raises a lot of alarming things, one of which is obstruction of a congressional investigation. He said, well we don’t want to provide all the 302s (summaries of interviews of subjects of an investigation), that’ll be explosive to Congress. So, they (Peter Strzok and Lisa Page) are going back and forth acknowledging that they’re not fully complying with Congress. So, we need to look at that and obviously a host of other issues that came out of these text messages.

FBI-DOJ Secret Society?


John R. Houk

© January 23, 2018

Ok, it’s time for more discussion on revealed information that FAKE NEWS loves to ignore or twist.

 

Married to other spouses love birds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page who are obvious conspirators against President Trump and attempted to everything in their power to insure a Crooked Hillary election victory in November 2016, have been caught with their pants down – so to speak.

 

Their FBI text messages before the 2016 election and afterwards by the love birds expose a Deep State collusion between the FBI and DOJ in anti-Trump motives and moves.

 

AND CHECK IT OUT! The revealed text messages are incriminating enough, BUT – shades of Lois Lerner50,000 text messages between the love birds have mysteriously disappeared from the most technological law enforcement agency in the world; i.e. the FBI! HMMM… Can you say COVER-UP!?

 

AND along with missing texts and – GASP! – five months of lost digital correspondence, Strzok-Page messaging has revealed their exists after Trump’s election a FBI-DOJ Secret Society.

 

Could this “Secret Society” be responsible for missing probably incriminating evidence of criminal FBI-DOJ messaging up to and including treason?

 

As the Dems undoubtedly will point out, without the evidence criminality can’t be proven. The Dems then would say something like, “Nothing to see here – just move on and forget about it.”

 

BUT Conservatives and the non-Establishment GOP must dig in their heels and toss aside obstructionists in government (law enforcement and elected officials) by any legal means necessary. Executive Branch obstructionists need to be fired – forget about the Dem lies of cover-up. It is obvious the largest cover-up is among Dems and their stealth bureaucracy in the Executive Branch held over from treasonous Obama. Also, legal investigative procedures against Obstructionist Dems and Establishment Republicans.

 

Well, those are my thoughts. Below is a number of sources that inspired my lack of faith in a government hampered by Deep State/Secret Society unconstitutional activity against a duly elected President of the United States – Donald J. Trump.

FBI’s Strzok and Page spoke of ‘secret society’ after Trump election, lawmakers say

 

By Adam Shaw

January 23, 2018

Fox News

 

Two top FBI officials under fire for exchanging anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 election spoke of a “secret society” the day after President Trump’s victory, according to two lawmakers with knowledge of the messages.

 

Peter Strzok — a top counterintelligence official involved in both the Hillary Clinton email probe and FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe — exchanged more than 50,000 messages with senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was romantically involved.

 

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, said Monday that among the messages the pair exchanged are references to a “secret society” within the Department of Justice and the FBI.

 

“We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of [Trump’s] election, that there may have been a secret society of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI — to include Page and Strzok — that would be working against him,” Ratcliffe said Monday on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

 

“I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context with which they used those terms,” he added.

 

Gowdy said the “secret society” reference occurred the day after Trump won the presidential election in November 2016.

 

“There’s a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these two supposed to be objective fact-centric FBI agents, saying that perhaps this is the first meeting of the ‘secret society,’” Gowdy said.

 

“So of course I’m going to want to know what secret society you’re talking about because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College; so yeah I’m going to want to know,” he said.

 

MORE THAN 50,000 TEXTS EXCHANGED BETWEEN FBI OFFICIALS STRZOK AND PAGE, SESSIONS SAYS

 

It isn’t the first time the messages have raised questions about what may have been going on at the FBI. In one previously released message, Strzok appeared to make reference to an “insurance policy” against a Trump win.

 

‘So of course I’m going to want to know what secret society you’re talking about because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College, so yeah I’m going to want to know.’ – Rep. Trey Gowdy

 

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…” he wrote.

 

According to the Wall Street Journal, Strzok claims the message was addressing a colleague who felt the FBI could take its time with allegations of Trump/Russia collusion because Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was thought certain to win.

 

“Andy,” meanwhile, may have been a reference to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is at the center of new tensions with the Trump administration.

 

Axios reported late Monday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, urged by President Trump, has been pressuring FBI Director Christopher Wray to fire McCabe.

 

The outlet reported that Wray threatened to resign if McCabe was fired. White House Counsel Don McGahn reportedly told Sessions that McCabe wasn’t worth losing the FBI director over and risking another media firestorm like when Trump axed former director James Comey last year.

 

The developments come as the DOJ announced that the FBI “failed to preserve” five months of texts between Strzok and Page.

 

“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions said in a statement provided to Fox News. “If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately.”

 

The missing messages from Strzok and Page span a crucial window, between the presidential transition and the launch of Mueller’s Russia probe. Strzok was removed from the probe by Mueller after he learned of the messages.

 

On Tuesday, President Trump described the missing messages as “one of the biggest stories in a long time.”

BREAKING: New Texts From Anti-Trump FBI Agents Mention A ‘SECRET SOCIETY’

“What ‘secret society’ are you talking about?”

 

By RYAN SAAVEDRA

January 22, 2018

Daily Wire

 

New text messages from anti-Trump FBI agents reviewed by investigators reportedly make reference to a “secret society,” in what could be the nail in the coffin for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

 

Investigators have reviewed 50,000 text messages on FBI servers looking for all exchanges between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 election, Fox News reported. The revelation comes as investigators are seeking the whereabouts of approximately five months’ worth of text messages between Page and Strzok.

 

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Monday that one of the newly-revealed text messages spoke of a “secret society.”

 

“The day after the election, the day after what they really, really didn’t want to have happen, there’s a text exchange between [Strzok and Page] … saying, ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society,'” Gowdy said. “So, of course I’m going to want to know: What ‘secret society’ are you talking about?”

 

 

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice is doing everything in its power to retrieve the missing text messages and to get to the bottom of what happened.

 

“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions told Fox News. “If we are successful, we will update the congressional committees immediately.”

 

“After reviewing the voluminous records on the FBI’s servers, which included over 50,000 texts, the Inspector General discovered the FBI’s system failed to retain text messages for approximately 5 months between December 14, 2017 to May 17, 2017,” Sessions continued. Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel in the Russia investigation on May 17.

 

Former Chief Asst. U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy noted that Sessions was not clear on whether the 50,000 text messages were all between Strozk [sic] and Page.

 

 

 

One of the most shocking text messages revealed thus far was from Strzok to Page and mentioned an “insurance policy” in case Trump won:

 

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”

 

Regarding the “insurance policy” text message, The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro wrote: “This looks an awful lot like motivation for launching an investigation into Trump in order to sink Trump as a hedge against Trump’s victory. The FBI’s investigation into Russian governmental interference in the election began in July 2016, just weeks before Strzok’s text message. And that means that there is now more of a smoking gun of FBI corruption against Trump than there is of Trump colluding with Russia.”

GOP lawmakers raise concerns over ‘secret society’ in FBI agents’ texts

 

By OLIVIA BEAVERS

01/22/18 10:57 PM EST

The Hill

 

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Monday raised concerns that the two FBI agents who privately exchanged text messages disparaging President Trump mentioned a “secret society” shortly after the Republican candidate won the election.

 

Gowdy joins a chorus of Republicans who are upset over texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with some claiming they serve as proof of the bureau’s bias against Trump in the probes into Russian election meddling, as well as into Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server while secretary of State.

 

Strzok, who spoke in openly derisive terms about Trump, served on both investigations before being removed from the Russia probe by special counsel Robert Mueller.

 

“The day after the election … there is a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these supposed to be fact-centric FBI agents saying, ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society,'” Gowdy said on Fox News’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

 

“So I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the Electoral College,” he continued.

 

Gowdy also pointing to his concern about their mention of an “insurance policy” in their back-and-forth during the spring of 2016, a remark that has captured Republicans’ attention.

 

Mueller removed the agents from his team after news of their critical messages surfaced, but Republicans continue to argue the agents reveal a prejudice against Trump within the FBI.

 

Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), a House Judiciary Committee member, also indicated that the existence of a secret society within the government raises red flags that top officials were working against Trump.

 

“We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of his election, there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, working against him. I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context,” Ratcliffe said on Fox with Gowdy by his side.

 

The Texas lawmaker said he is not bothered that Strzok and Page had an “intense anti-Trump bias,” as long as they put their personal feelings aside and performed properly and fairly in their job.

 

The FBI told lawmakers in a letter over the weekend that the bureau did not have a record of messages exchanged over a roughly five-month period between Strzok and Page, citing problems with the bureau’s issued mobile phones.

 

The announcement further fueled the scrutiny of Republicans, who are calling for efforts to track down the missing messages.

 

Ratcliffe indicated that their disappearance appears suspicious.

 

“It is possible these text messages that are missing, perhaps they really were lost. Perhaps it is another strange coincidence,” Ratcliffe said, adding that it “is harder and harder for us to explain one strange coincidence after another.”

 

Republicans have also sought to draw attention to the text messages as a sign that the investigation is politically motivated against the president, while Democrats accuse their colleagues of attempting to undermine the Russia probe, which is looking into possible ties between Trump campaign aides and Russia.

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday announced the Justice Department will investigate the missing text messages, a decision that comes after he faced pressure from the White House and GOP lawmakers to look into the matter.

 

“We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions said in a statement.

 

The president and his allies have described Mueller’s Russia investigation as a “witch hunt.”

Dem & Establishment Criminality Emerging?


John R. Houk

October 25, 2017

 

Ever since Donald Trump won a smashing Electoral College victory over Crooked Hillary Clinton in November 2016, the Dems wept in hysterical despair.

 

VIDEO: anti-Trump protester screams ‘no’ as Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th US President

 

This kind of Leftist hysterical breakdown is behind the Dems to do every nefarious act possible to remove the duly Constitutionally elected President Donald Trump from Office. This attempted removal is faking a Trump/Russia collusion story when it is becoming more evidentially tangible that Crooked Hillary (and family), the Dem Party and probably even President Obama and his Administration comrades were colluding with Russia to undermine America and the election.

 

Briefly here is a list of criminal activities of Dems in general, Clinton Crime Syndicate and the Obama Administration:

 

  • Massively, more undisclosed classified emails on Huma Abedin’s ex-husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop surround the culprits Crooked Hillary, Abedin and sex-offender Weiner.

 

  • Former Crooked Hillary Campaign Manager John Podesta’s brother Tony Podesta is under investigation for Russia/Ukraine collusion by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. (I’m not sure what will come of this because Mueller may be connected to an FBI cover-up.)

 

 

 

 

  • An Offended America investigation has revealed that Robert Mueller’s holdings in a fund of funds expose him to Russian investments and to hedge funds tied to George Soros. Mueller’s exclusive hedge funds were not open to the general public, but rather wealthy private accredited investors. The minimum investment in several of the funds is $10 Million.

 

  • Speculative Guess Work but worthy of mentioning about Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Jeff Sessions recused himself from all things Russian because of election campaign conflicts, but perhaps he recused himself to be insulated from having to divulge what he knew about Uranium One and the people who at the very least knew about the deal, some who approved the deal, including past and present members of the FBI, the DOJ, and Special Counsel Robert Miller’s team. Is Jeff Sessions part of the Uranium One cover-up? If not, then he needs to explain why he is thus far is refusing  Chuck Grassley’s request to lift the gag order imposed by the Obama administration. 

 

 

 

Friends this is huge! If Donald Trump truly acts to drain the swamp, this is his opportunity. There is a enough criminal dirt here to not only toss Crooked Hillary in the slammer, but also to disembowel the entire Leftist complex of the Democratic Party. Which return the Dems – hopefully – to former years of yore to such leaders as Senator Henry Jackson. Those Democrats of yore would cringe to how much the current Democratic Party has really transformed into a Communist-Democratic Party. What a deceptive oxymoron that has become!

 

In the coming days I’m going to attempt to cross post the sources for these points which should be indictments for prosecution. However, the Dem House of Cards is falling so rapidly to exposure, I will probably move off-point to deliver more relevant updated info.

A Freedom Outpost Bundy Update


Intro by John R. Houk

Intro © September 4, 2017

 

Whenever I run into some info about the government persecution of ranchers that stood with the Bundy family against Federal government (largely the Bureau of Land Management – BLM) intrusion to enforce bureaucratic rules that act as laws that benefit Eco-Marxists desires over private property and private business.

 

Here is a brief synopsis of the reasons that Cliven Bundy decided to withstand the Law created by the BLM and not Congress from my last post on this situation – “Supporting Bundys in Trials & Tribulations”:

 

A few facts about the Cliven Bundy and the BLM incident

 

For some time, the Bundy’s have owned cattle that have grazed in the Bunkerville, NV area.  Since his cattle grazed on federal land, he paid grazing fees to the federal government. In 1993, the local grazing rules changed when a number of things came together; the Desert tortoise became protected under the species act, and the Fish and Wildlife Service determined that this was one of the areas critical to their long-term survival. Grazing rules were also changed in order to accommodate restoration needed from years of overgrazing and recent fires. These new rules would include Bundy having to reduce his number of cattle. Refusing to comply, he decided to “fire” the BLM, and stop paying grazing fees, while continuing to use federal lands for his cattle to graze. Not only did he not reduce his cattle count, but actually increased them over time.

 

In this latest update that I have discovered, the Freedom Outpost reports the 1/3 of Idaho State Senators and Representatives are urging Attorney General Jeff Sessions to stop the DOJ led persecution – er I mean – prosecution of the Bundy Ranch Standoff largely due to a fair amount of the defendants are experiencing second and third retrials after hung juries.

 

The judicial persecution is happening in the Bundy family’s home State of Nevada. Apparently these Idaho legislators are making views known to AG Sessions is because of the defendants are from Idaho.

 

Here is the Freedom Outpost update.

1/3 of Idaho Reps Call on AG Sessions to Back Off Bundy Ranch Case: This Is “Disrespect for the Rule of Law & the Jury System”

 

By TIM BROWN 

SEPTEMBER 3, 2017

Freedom Outpost

 

Last Friday, following a meeting of Tier 1 and Tier 3 Bundy Ranch defendants in court with Judge Gloria Navarro, a trial date was set for October 10.  That trial will include Eric Parker and Stephen Drexler, who have already been tried twice with hung juries and non-guilty verdicts.  Now, at least a third of Idaho representatives are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to put an end to the badgering of these men with trial after trial, a clear violation of the Fifth Amendment’s protections against Double Jeopardy (and yes, I know the “legaleze” about mistrials, but the fact of the matter is that under that thinking, one could try someone indefinitely).

 

Deb Jordan, co-host of the Pete Santilli Show, shared the story of what the outcome of the meeting was with me on Friday’s Sons of Liberty Radio Show.  Eric and his wife Andrea also joined us for the show.  You can download that episode by clicking here.

 

Since then, one-third of the representatives of Idaho, the state in which Parker and Drexler live, penned a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for him relax the pursuit by Nevada prosecutors against four Idahoans who are charged or have been convicted in the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff in Nevada.

 

The letter was authored by State Rep. Dorothy Moon (R-Stanley) and signed by 24 Idaho representatives from the House and Senate last Tuesday stating, “We believe that the decision by the current U.S. attorney to Nevada to prosecute these men a third time represents disrespect for the rule of law and the jury system.”

 

The four men these representatives are standing up for are Ammon Bundy, of Emmett; Eric Parker, of Hailey; Scott Drexler, of Challis; and Todd Engel, of Boundary County.

 

“We are tasked with the responsibility to protect our citizens’ constitutional rights,” the letter stated, noting the Idaho Legislatures has a “high respect for the rule of law.”

 

“We believe that the right to a speedy trial and the presumption of innocence are essential pillars to law, order, and a Republican form of government,” the letter continues.  “We also believe that a trial by a jury of one’s peers is the highest form of justice as set forth by our founders.  Ensuring government stays within the bounds of its proper constitutional role empowers the people through a jury’s verdict to give clear guidance as to their will.”

 

They then spoke out about the innocence of the defendants who have already been tried and found not guilty.

 

“We the undersigned believe that in the case of ‘The Bunkerville Stand Off’ trials in the State of Nevada in which Eric Parker and O. Scott Drexler of the State of Idaho were charged with 40 criminal counts in connection with the above case having been found not guilty speaks volumes to the public of their innocence,” the letter states.  “U. S. Attorneys have been unsuccessful obtaining guilty verdicts not once, but twice, establishing criteria for dismissal of charges against them according to our standards of justice.  Further expolitation [sic] of these citizens would be an affront to justice and notice to the public of prosecutorial harassment.”

 

Well, if you ask me, that began when they sought to try the men a second time after failing to prove their case.  After all, the burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove guilt, not on those charged to prove their innocence.

 

“We believe that the decision by the current U. S. Attorney of Nevada to prosecute these men a third time represents disrespect for the rule of law and the Jury system,” the representatives wrote.  “A third trial would show blatant disregard for tax funds collected from hard working law abiding citizens who are represented by these juries who have found them innocent of 34 of the 40 charges and hung by the very slimmest margins in those where the jury stood deadlocked.  The decisions of 10-2 to acquit in the first trial and 11-1 to acquit in the second trial highlights the narrow margin by which the prosecution hopes to continue their attack.”

 

They then called on Sessions, the court and the prosecutor to consider Todd Engel’s time served as punishment for the minor charges for which he was found guilty.  He is scheduled to be sentenced on September 28.

 

“Ammon Bundy, an Idaho resident, remains in custody awaiting trial directly after the final outcome of the pending prosecution’s decision with Parker and Drexler,” the letter adds.  “Ammon has been in custody since January of 2016 without benefit of bail or the comfort of home and familiy [sic] in spite of being found not guilty of all counts in the Oregon trial.  Ammon has been stripped of normal due process for a prosecution that now seems flimsy as we discover evidence exposed during these previous hung trials of others for similar offenses.”

 

The representatives then added, “This prosecution sends a chilling message to the public who are concerned about federal overreach in their daily lives that is inharmonious to well-established constitutional guarantees.  The percentages of jurors causing the hung verdicts in these trials should send a clear signal to the government prosecutors of the jury’s reticence to further prosecute these defendants as has clearly been received by the public.”

 

The representatives then call on Sessions to “have those in charge of this case end this long enduring action and set Eric Parker and Scott Drexler free, set reasonable bail for Ammon Bundy and allow Todd Engel to use his time served as total sentencing.

 

Among signing the letter include House Majority Leader Mike Moyle; Assistant Majority Leader Brent Crane; Treasure Valley Sens. Clifford Bayer and Lori Den Hartog; and Treasure Valley Reps. Judy Boyle, Christy Perry, Brandon Hixon, Greg Chaney, Joe Palmer, James Holtzclaw, Steve Harris and Jason Monks.

 

“I think it is a complete injustice and a waste of taxpayer money and time to continue to go after these guys after two mistrials,” said Rep. Boyle, from Midvale.

 

“Let it go. We are not talking about murders, robberies, druggies, rapists. It is continuing to waste the court’s time and federal taxpayers’ money. I know the federal government wants to make a point, but get over it.”

 

Things do not have to go to a third trial in order for this to be considered exploitation and prosecutorial harassment.  That has and is currently taking place by the prosecution and by Judge Gloria Navarro.

 

I have said since the end of the first trial, if the prosecution had any sense about them, they would drop the charges against the remaining defendants and spare them and taxpayers any further grief and burden by simply admitting the central government was wrong.

 

I’m hoping once things settle that we will see each one of these men come together to sue the pants off the prosecution and the judge in the case, as well as Bureau of Land Management goon Daniel P. Love for their reckless and lawless behavior in this entire process.

 

Seeing that a new trial date has been set, it appears AG Sessions doesn’t care that the Fifth and Sixth Amendments are being violated concerning Drexler and Parker and that other rights are being violated concerning the remaining defendants in the case.  I’m not surprised.  After all, Sessions has demonstrated he doesn’t care about the Fifth Amendments protections of lifeliberty and property when it comes to asset forfeiture.

Against the National Will


Justin Smith rightfully excoriates Leftist activist Judges ignoring the U.S. Constitution by unconstitutionally thwarting President Trump putting a lid on illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists from entering the USA.

Against the National Will

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/1/2017 11:17 PM

 

America is made less safe through Leftist immigration policy, as evidenced over the last eight years. Illegal aliens rob, rape and murder millions of Americans each year, because Leftist activist judges have said these illegals have “a right” to simply appear in our country, and Leftist mayors of U.S. cities refuse to enforce sound and logical U.S. immigration law already in existence, creating “sanctuary cities”. Their combined anti-American actions are directly responsible for so much misery, loss and heartache for American citizens they have sworn an oath to protect, and they have placed our U.S. national sovereignty in jeopardy.

 

Too many Americans blindly accept the fallacies and outright lies from the Left, that illegal aliens have “a right” to self-immigrate and a “birthright” to U.S. citizenship for any of their children born in America. These are weapons that Leftist judges use in their rulings to undermine our U.S. Constitution and move closer to an open border policy intent on fundamentally transforming our culture and society and ending American traditions, based on equality under the law, that preserve freedom and liberty for all Americans.

 

Whenever anyone witnesses Leftist protests from Sacramento to Seattle and New York to Atlanta, or points in between, LARAZA [FrontPageMag, DTN & Human Events] and Red Communist flags, the Hammer and Sickle, are readily seen everywhere, along with the black flag of the Islamic State. These people — all of them — in one form or fashion seek the fall of America and the eradication of our current U.S. Constitution, and as such, they indicate that they are outside the jurisdiction of the U.S., that their allegiances lie elsewhere rather than with the United States of America.

 

The author of the 14th Amendment, Senator Jacob Howard, defined who fell within the jurisdiction of the United States: “Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to [the states’] jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural and national law, a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the [U.S.] who are foreigners [and] aliens …”. Pointing to natural law indicates the republican basis for citizenship is consent of the country.

 

On May 30th, 1866, Senator Lyman Trumbull stated that the jurisdiction clause includes those “not owing allegiance to anybody else … It’s only those persons … that we think of making citizens; and there can be no objection to the proposition that such persons should be made citizens.

 

Read deeper in the Congressional Record of the day [NationalPublicLibrary.com & Justia.com (note 1268)], and one finds that most Congressmen intended “jurisdiction” to be viewed in the context of “in extent and quality as it applies to every citizen of the United States now” and “in every respect”. They also agreed that high crimes and treason could be used as grounds to revoke one’s citizenship.

 

Approximately 118 jurisdictions in the United States currently serve as sanctuaries for dangerous illegal aliens. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported that 279 counties and cities refused to detain and deport illegal aliens last year, even though a high percentage of them were Unaccompanied Alien Children who were violent gang members of MS-13.

 

Recently, a 14 year old girl was raped and sodomized repeatedly by two Unaccompanied Alien “Children”, who pulled her into a bathroom at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland, a sanctuary area for illegal aliens. One of her attackers, Henry Sanchez, an 18 year old Guatemalan, has a pending deportation case against him; both he and 17 year old Jose Montano, from El Salvador, were charged with first degree rape.

 

Hesham Mohamed Hadayet came to America on a tourist visa and immediately applied for asylum due to persecution in Egypt. They were “persecuting” him, because he was a member of Gama’a Islamiyya, an Islamic terrorist group. But thanks to Barney Frank’s 1989 amendment to the Immigration and Naturalization Act, he couldn’t be blocked from coming to America.

 

In 2011, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged they had lost track of millions of people overstaying their visas. Two years later, they lost track of 266 dangerous foreigners that posed “national security or public safety concerns”, according to the Director of Homeland Security.

 

Are these the type of people Americans really wish to give U.S. citizenship? Citizenship is a privilege, not a right as some Leftist judges assert.

 

In a statement on March 27th, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned sanctuary cities across America to enforce U.S. immigration law and cooperate with federal authorities or lose federal funding. He made it clear that any failure to correct violations of 8 U.S.C. Section 1373 could result in the termination of all future Office of Justice grants. Sessions added that Kate Steinle’s murder in San Francisco two years ago, by an illegal alien, was a direct result of San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor federal detainer warrants.

 

Denying anyone entry into the country, especially for security concerns, is the sovereign right of our nation. The rulings from U.S. District judges such as James Robart, Leonie Brinkema and Dolly Gee, [GOPTheDailyDose.com & AFA.net] as well as upcoming ACLU lawsuits aimed at Jeff Sessions announcement, that suggest otherwise have absolutely no basis in the Constitution or the U.S. legal code; an affirmative legal right for any foreigner to immigrate to America does not exist, but the legal system is being manipulated to create a default “right” to immigrate, damaging our sovereignty and infringing upon our right to self-government, in the name of open borders.

 

Detailed in government statistics, twenty-five people are killed each day in America by illegal aliens. What is the affirmative case for such an insane policy? How does it make America better?

 

The current federal court systems have taken the very same laws used by every other president, and they have made them seem anomalous, unConstitutional, even illegal, when President Trump attempts to use them. These courts are overreaching their powers and abrogating the Constitution, when they allow illegal aliens and Muslims, outside the bounds of accurate security assessments, to remain in the country against the national will.

 

Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime, but Commie Progressive Democrats seem to be more concerned with protecting the rights of illegal aliens from Central America and the Middle East more than they care to protect the person, rights and life of any U.S. citizen. They would rather protect the privileges of well-connected elitists and LARAZA, ACLU commies and Muslim Brotherhood [CAIR] terrorists. But what about the right of a teenage girl to be protected from being raped by illegal aliens — the rights of millions of Americans to be protected from being maimed and murdered by the Sons of Mohammed?

 

No American who loves his country can allow this total disregard for our Constitution to stand. The President and Congress must forcefully and definitively squash the Courts’ power over this issue and remove their inordinate power. Otherwise, America will become unrecognizable, a mere shadow of Her former glory.

Is Deep State Conspiracy Unraveling?

You’d think after the election cycle that the Dems would be content to stall the GOP/Trump agenda by whatever legal means necessary, right?

 

Unfortunately, it is becoming clear that the Soros/Obama and probably Clinton faction of the Dems have become so unhinged for losing to President Trump that between November 8, 2016 and Inauguration Day January 20, 2017; the Leftist Moonbats conspired a shadow government disruption of the Trump Administration.

 

So, the question every American that honors America’s Founding Documents should be, “WHY?”

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

 

Eminating [sic] from the “deep state,” another “scandal” has been created. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has just held a news conference. It is much ado about nothing.

 

This will never end until and unless Trump cleans house. DRAIN THE SWAMP

 

INVESTIGATE THE LEAKS!!!

 

My new column, The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump, identifies the person in the press getting the leaks. START WITH HIM!!!  He is a mouthpiece for the CIA.

 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff have approved the Scope of Investigation for the inquiry by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence into the Russian active measures campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election.

 

One of the issues is: What possible leaks of classified information took place related to the Intelligence Community Assessment of these matters?

 

There is an easy way to answer this: subpoena the Post columnist getting the leaks. We know who he is. Read my column.

 

Do you believe in elected constitutional government? Or should the “deep state” run our affairs as a nation?

 

A great conservative lawyer, Larry Klayman, has described in detail what the “alternative government” is doing to the Trump Administration.

 

My new column, The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump, explains the stakes.

The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump

NSA Listening to Trump

 

By Cliff Kincaid

March 2, 2017

America’s Survival

 

President Trump gave a good speech on Tuesday night, but his presidency is still hanging by a thread. Attorney Larry Klayman says an “alternative government” in the intelligence community continues to target him. “These intelligence agencies are more powerful than the president himself,” Klayman said on the Fox Business Network. “They have the ability to blackmail people in this administration to the point that the American people’s interests are going to be subverted.”

 

Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, said, “How can he [President Trump] represent the interests of the American people when he knows the NSA is likely wiretapping everything he says with foreign leaders and everyone else?”

 

klayman-nsa-tapping-trump

Klayman: NSA Tapping Trump

 

It may seem like ancient history, but the media used to be concerned about surveillance of American citizens by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies. After President Trump was elected, such concern suddenly disappeared. In fact, the media became the recipients of illegal leaks of private conversations by Trump administration officials. One such leak forced the resignation of national security adviser Michael T. Flynn.

 

Claude Barfield, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), writes that there was nothing improper with U.S. intelligence surveillance of phone calls to and from the Russian ambassador. However, in regard to Flynn, existing law does not permit the NSA or FBI to “listen to the communications of Americans who may be caught in…eavesdropping.”

 

The allegation that Flynn violated “the ancient 18th century Logan Act that forbids diplomatic activity by private U.S. citizens is no longer relevant, according to almost all legal experts,” notes Barfield. So the wiretaps could not be justified on that flimsy basis.

 

Flynn was forced out on the equally spurious grounds that he forgot to tell Vice President Mike Pence about elements of the conversations he had with the Russian official.

 

Barfield says that “a criminal—and certainly civil rights—violation did occur with the public leaks of the details of his conversations with the foreign ambassador from someone (or some persons) in the intelligence community.” The leak violated the Espionage Act, which makes intentional disclosure of classified “communications intelligence activities” a felony. What’s more, citing Timothy H. Edgar of Brown University, it is also a crime for national security officials “to leverage legitimate foreign intelligence collection to reveal public information in order to damage [an] individual they do not believe should serve.”

 

It is well-known that Flynn’s appointment as national security adviser was opposed by elements in the intelligence community, especially the CIA.

 

Edgar writes that “Flynn himself may be the first victim of civil liberties abuse during the Trump administration.” He says, “If officials had concerns about Flynn, the law requires they lodge those complaints through the system and not through leaks.”

 

This means that some intelligence officials viewed Flynn as a threat and wanted him out, using any means possible.

 

Edgar suggests that Flynn call the ACLU for legal help, but a far better course of action would be to call litigator Larry Klayman, who says it’s clear that “the NSA is spying on the President, his White House, and the administration in general.”

 

Klayman believes that “loyalists to former President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their leftist comrades” are behind the illegal surveillance.

David Ignatius

 

Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) told Newsmax TV that the NSA “can collect on the Russian embassy, no problem,” but that “when they collect on an American, whether it’s here in the United States or when we collect inadvertently on an American overseas, that information immediately should be what we call minimized. The name should be taken away.”

 

“Hoekstra explained that a court order must be granted in order to receive permission to release the name of any American captured by the NSA’s spying techniques,” the Newsmax story said.

 

Rather than be minimized or eliminated, the name was illegally leaked to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. We discussed this sequence of events in the column, “Why the CIA Wants to Destroy Flynn.” Ignatius quoted “a senior U.S. government official” as the source of the information about Flynn.

 

During his appearance on the Fox Business Channel, Klayman discussed this illegal surveillance and offered to represent Flynn in a legal action. He repeated his claim that the intelligence community was engaged in illegal surveillance not only of Flynn but of other Trump officials, including the President himself.

 

Klayman has asked for an emergency hearing on this matter from Judge Richard Leon, who had previously ruled in Klayman’s favor in a lawsuit against NSA surveillance. He said the evidence suggests the existence of an “alternative government,” based in the intelligence community, which is more powerful than elected officials.

 

On the same program, a clip was played of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, saying that the Flynn case represented an abuse of authority. He said that Flynn had his telephone call listened to by the government and leaked to the press, and that if this had happened to a member of the Obama administration, “you can imagine the Democrats in the House and Senate would be going crazy…”

 

Nunes said that, in order for the intelligence community to listen to an American such as Flynn, a special warrant is required. “I am quite sure this wasn’t done in this case,” he said.

 

The Washington Monthly, a liberal publication, published a story by Martin Longman that began, “When it comes to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, I have long seen him as an informal member of the intelligence community who often acts as their mouthpiece.” Longman concluded that “the intelligence community took down Flynn…”

 

The official bio for Ignatius mentions that he covered the CIA when he worked for The Wall Street Journal.

 

At the Post, Ignatius has expressed concern about whether Obama CIA director John Brennan’s “modernization” of the agency will survive Trump. “After interviewing several dozen CIA officers and veterans over the past several months,” Ignatius wrote, “my conclusion is that Brennan’s reforms should continue…”

 

Based on stories like this, it would appear that Ignatius is more than willing, even anxious, to advertise his CIA connections.

 

Any investigation of what Trump calls “illegal leaks” should begin with him.

TRUMP TWEETS HIS OUTRAGE OVER OBAMA WIRE TAPPING TRUMP TOWER DURING CAMPAIGN

 

MARCH 4, 2017

Minutemen News

 

In a possible reaction to a Breitbart story published yesterday, in which writer, Joel Pollak, detailed Mark Levin’s analysis of ten ways the Obama administration tried to undermine the presidential campaign and administration of Donald Trump.

 

Breitbart offers:

 

  1. June 2016: FISA request.The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

 

 

  1. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

 

The article sums up the ten actions, Levin says, should be the target of a Congressional investigation:

 

In summary: the Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.

 

In response, President Trump began tweeting for all to see.

Fascists to the Left and Right


On June 12 I posted an amalgamation of Justin Smith thoughts – that are preceded by an intro by me – he had left on the Facebook group America’s Party. Now Justin has put together an essay about the same thoughts which relate to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Fascists to the Left and Right

America Betrayed

By Justin O. Smith

6/13/2015 7:17 PM

Show me the ‘free trade’ section of the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, and I’ll kiss Obama’s ass.” – Justin O Smith

Under the banner of free trade with trade an afterthought, America was betrayed on May 21st by forty-nine GOP Senators and thirteen Democrats, who voted for the Trade Promotion Authority [TPA] and corporatism and transnational fascism in order to fast-track the anti-American Trans-Pacific Partnership “trade deal” and create an international rule of law unaccompanied by democracy. This, in essence, would have removed constitutional protections against the creation of global governance structures, and it would transfer Congressional control of numerous issues to international tribunals.

Obama has been negotiating the TPP under a blanket of silence and secrecy for the past five years, and the American people were not allowed to see it before Congress voted on the TPA fast-track on June 12th; only through leaked information do we now understand that the TPP will significantly impact public health, foreign policy, immigration and the environment.

Members of the U.S. Congress have been allowed only limited access to the TPP in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center. They can review one section at a time under “supervision” of a guard, and they are forced to relinquish any notes they made before they leave. Yet more than 500 official corporate “advisors” have unlimited access to the TPP text.

Sen. Rand Paul stated, “It boggles the mind,” and he continued, [Who] … decides to keep a trade treaty secret?”

Michael Wessel has forty years of trade policy experience working for former Democrat Leader Dick Gephardt. He has worked on the North American Free Trade Agreement and he was an advisor to Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign. He is also a “cleared advisor” who has read the text of TPP and opposes large portions of it. He asserts in a Politico interview that he and other cleared advisors are being censored and prevented from publicly sharing their criticisms of the trade deal concerning specific proposals [See HERE]. Like every other issue, Obama pretends that such criticisms do not exist.

Why isn’t every single member of Congress demanding the full disclosure of the content of the TPP?

More than this, why would any Republican be willing to give Obama extended powers under TPA, when Obama has shown a real disdain for the U.S. Constitution? Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly called it “insane to give Obama some power to negotiate an important treaty in secret … [and] not have to account to Congress or the Senate.” [See HERE]

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is one of the few people who have read the TPP, and he noted earlier this month: “Under fast-track Congress transfers its authority to the executive and agrees to give up several of its most basic powers. … the power to write legislation … to amend legislation … to fully consider legislation on the floor … to keep debate open until Senate cloture is invoked, and the constitutional requirement that treaties receive two-thirds vote.” __ Session adds, “The latter is especially important since … it [the TPP] more closely resembles a treaty than a trade deal.” [See HERE]

Numerous sources, such as Frank Gaffney – president of the Center for Security Policy, Lou Dobbs – noted scholar and investigative journalist, and political analyst Mark Levin, have all noted that the TPA empowers Obama to unilaterally draft “implementing legislation” that will change U.S. laws and regulations to comply with the agreement he has negotiated. Through the TPA, Congress limits its own ability to debate and amend Obama’s “implementing legislation.”

Curiously, most of the 49 Senators who voted to fast-track the TPP had not read it, before they voted in favor of the TPA, including presidential candidates Senators Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, although Cruz has since read it. So in essence, these men voted on a significant trade policy bill that affects the U.S. beyond anything America has seen to date, without reading the first word in it.

Deceit and subterfuge are being employed, when government officials claim TPP will not supersede U.S. law, because the fast-tracked legislation will. It also should be highlighted that rulings emanating from international tribunals do result in de facto modifications to a nation’s laws through regulations extra-legally, just in the same manner the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules have impacted the U.S.

The transnationalist governance structure of the TPP falls under the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission, which has extremely broad powers and is taking the form of a nascent European Union. This new transnational commission has been chartered, by all accounts, with a “Living Agreement” clause, and it will have the authority to amend the agreement after passage, to add members and to issue regulations impacting the environment, commercial policy, healthcare, labor and immigration: An entire section of the TPP is devoted solely to immigration policy for the participating nations.

If one needs more reasons to oppose TPA and TPP, they are found in the Clinton administration’s North American Free Trade Agreement (Jan. 1994) and the WTO (Jan. 1995). These two trade treaties have caused serious detrimental effects on the U.S. economy.

Reuters’ reports: “Since the pacts were implemented, U.S. trade deficits, which drag down economic growth, have soared more than 430 percent with our free trade partners. In the same period, they’ve declined 11 percent with countries that are not free trade partners. Since fast-track authority was used to pass NAFTA and the U.S. entrance into the World Trade Organization, the overall annual U.S. trade deficit in goods has more than quadrupled, from $218 billion to $912 billion.”

Daniel DiMicco, Chairman Emeritus of Nucor Steel, explains that these free trade deals haven’t been free trade at all. We have lowered our barriers to foreign imports, but they have retained their barriers to our imports, resulting in “unilateral trade disarmament” and enabling “foreign mercantilism.”

Along with this, the AFL-CIO labor federation released a report on May 20th that read: “There is no reason to believe that drawing the Pacific Rim countries away from China is a realistic goal, so long as China continues to offer mutually beneficial trade, investments and supply chain opportunities to those countries — It seems reckless to ask Congress to enter into a deal that has a high probability of undermining U.S. wages, jobs and labor rights, as previous trade agreements have done, especially given that the deal has no real chance of diminishing China’s existing economic influence.

In this context, those proponents saying “Our rules, no rules or China’s rules,” over the TPA battle, are presenting fallacies and a false premise.

“Free trade” shouldn’t destroy one-fourth of all manufacturing jobs in the U.S., as NAFTA did. “Free trade” shouldn’t force displaced American workers to take pay cuts of 20% or more, in some cases. And ‘free trade” shouldn’t give transnational corporations more decision-making power than the U.S. government, making them a part of the government and allowing them to impact U.S. society, when their interference is unwanted and outside the normal parameters of any right they might claim.

In effect, TPA fast-track is an agreement to pre-approve and remove constitutional protections against the creation of a global governance structure, whose structures have not been made public yet. Above any desire to understand the legal and constitutional basis for such secrecy involving the TPP, one should ask, “Why is our Congress even considering such a transfer of U.S. sovereign power to a transnational governance structure of any kind, regardless of how beneficial the ‘deal’ seems?”

Can anyone show me the “free trade” in the TPP deal? Is this what freedom, liberty and justice for all has come to mean in America? God help US if it is.

Fortunately for all America, the TPA was not allowed to advance, after Speaker Boehner pushed it to a 219-211 win, because a key element, the Trade Adjustment Assistance segment, was defeated 302-126, in an effort led by labor and Nancy Pelosi. But Boehner has suggested that it will be revisited and another vote taken over the next few days, however, the 188 member Democrat caucus contains 124 hard “NO” votes in the House, with the full backing of Senators like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. So, it is highly likely that the TAA bill won’t pass, and the TPA won’t even get a vote.

Call Your Congressmen and urge them to stand firm against any new attempt to pass TPA; and then, prepare to engage in the most forceful, powerful Civil Disobedience imaginable, if for some unforeseen reason, our representatives pass the TAA and the TPA, which go against everything remotely in America’s best interests. Prepare to even take up arms should it become necessary to do so, in order to make our government and Obama understand just how far ‘We the People’ believe that they have overreached their authority.

As a longtime supporter of the GOP, I stand with those five Republican Senators, including Jeff Sessions, and the 32 Republican Congressmen, with Tennessee’s representatives noticeably missing from their ranks, and all the Democrats who stood and opposed the TPA on June 12th: Let’s pray that the next vote permanently derails the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Are YOU going to Allow the House to Fast-Track TPP


John R. Houk

© June 8, 2015

I think I have actually found an issue that Conservatives and Leftists might actually have some common. And the incredible irony is this issue may equally divide the Conservative and Leftist camps into pro and against on both sides of the issue.

What is that issue?

The issue is called Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP.

The plus implications of a TPP agreement is the schmooze of Free Enterprise and the tearing down of restrictive tariffs between the TPP signatory nations.

I have knowledge of the TPP negotiations on a periphery basis rather than a complete informed basis. So when I received The Western Center for Journalism (WJ) action alert email I was quite interested in their Conservative view. When I did a little cursory investigation is when I discovered there are some Leftists against TPP. In case you were unaware the WJ takes a Right Wing position that many (especially Leftists) consider a bit further to the Right than a lot of other Conservative organization

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who is considered more Left Wing than Hillary Clinton, has come out strongly against a TPP agreement. Her reasoning is a bit different from the Conservative reasons for being against TPP, but the point is regardless of the reasons there is strong opposition from both Left and Right on the Trans-Pacific Partnership becoming a part of the Rule of Law.

Here is an excerpt from an article that is billed as showing the pros and cons of TPP:

The Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, is a proposed free trade agreement between the U.S and 11 other trading partners bordering the Pacific Ocean. Current trade between the countries is $1.5 trillion in goods (2012 estimate) and $242 billion in services (2011 estimate). Once approved, it would be bigger than the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), currently the world’s largest free trade area.

The TPP is between Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the U.S. and Vietnam. The countries involved are responsible for 40% of the world’s total GDP of $88 trillion, 26% of its trade, and 793 million of its consumers.

Notably, the agreement excludes China. It’s meant to balance the trade dominance of both China and India in East Asia. It also provides a trade alliance that gives the U.S. an excuse to intervene in trade disputes in the oil-rich South China Sea.

However, all parties have signaled that other members can join in the future. So far, the Phillipines and China have indicated an interest.

Like most other trade agreements, it removes tariffs on goods and services, and sets reciprocal trade quotas. Unlike most agreements, but like the TTIP, it removes non-tariff blocks to trade and harmonizes regulations and statutes.

Pros

The TPP boosts exports and economic growth, creating more jobs and prosperity for the 12 countries involved. It increases exports by $305 billion per year by 2025. U.S. exports would increase by $123.5 billion, focusing on machinery, especially electrical, autos, plastics and agriculture industries.

The agreement adds $223 billion a year to incomes of workers in all the countries, with $77 billion of that going to U.S. workers. (Source: US Trade Representative, TPP Fact Sheet)

Cons

Most of the gains in income would go to workers making more than $88,000 a year. Free trade agreements contribute to income inequality in high-wage countries by promoting cheaper goods from low-wage countries.

This would be particularly true for the TPP, because it protects patents and copyrights. Therefore, the higher-paid owners of the intellectual property would receive more of the income gains.

The agreement regarding patents will reduce the availability of cheap generics, making many drugs more expensive. Competitive business pressures will reduce the incentives in Asia to protect the environment. Last but not least, the trade agreement could supersede financial regulations.

Obstacles

There are five areas that stand in the way of a successful deal. First, the U.S. wants more protection for … (What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership? By Kimberly Amadeo; About.com; Article updated April 16, 2015)

Senator Warren has had her Senate staff publish a report on TPP called “Broken Promises”. Warren’s concerns seem to focus on how TPP will affect Labor in the USA. In this she is joining America’s big Unions. From a Labor perspective, there is concern of cheap foreign labor and greater production of goods and services in foreign countries that could affect employment of American citizens – in Warren’s case that would be Union backed Labor.

See: Elizabeth Warren Sees Broken Promises in Obama’s Trade Agenda at The New Republic 5/18/15.

Michael Wessel backs Senator Warren at Politico but he focuses on the secrecy involved in the TPP negotiations. And not just the typical secrecy involved in nation-to-nation negotiations, but the kind of secrecy that has very limited access to those authorized to view the memos and reports that have been saved from the negotiations. To the point that the authorized must go to a designated building and they must be watched by a government functionary:

You need to tell me what’s wrong with this trade agreement, not one that was passed 25 years ago,” a frustrated President Barack Obama recently complained about criticisms of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). He’s right. The public criticisms of the TPP have been vague. That’s by design—anyone who has read the text of the agreement could be jailed for disclosing its contents. I’ve actually read the TPP text provided to the government’s own advisors, and I’ve given the president an earful about how this trade deal will damage this nation. But I can’t share my criticisms with you.

I can tell you that Elizabeth Warren is right about her criticism of the trade deal. We should be very concerned about what’s hidden in this trade deal—and particularly how the Obama administration is keeping information secret even from those of us who are supposed to provide advice.

So-called “cleared advisors” like me are prohibited from sharing publicly the criticisms we’ve lodged about specific proposals and approaches. The government has created a perfect Catch 22: The law prohibits us from talking about the specifics of what we’ve seen, allowing the president to criticize us for not being specific. Instead of simply admitting that he disagrees with me—and with many other cleared advisors—about the merits of the TPP, the president instead pretends that … (I’ve Read Obama’s Secret Trade Deal. Elizabeth Warren Is Right to Be Concerned; By MICHAEL WESSEL; Politico; 5/19/15)

Conservative anti-TPP concerns center around the distrust of laws forced on Americans that are beyond the scope of the Constitution and the concern that TPP will bypass Congressional oversight and/or approval protocols. Also there is a concern of mass immigration of foreigners taking American jobs. In essence the issue is a foreign infringement on American sovereignty.

The Conservative plus view looks at lower tariffs and markets that prosper the American economy via less regulations as well as products made less expensively thus costing consumers less money.

Senator Jeff Sessions list five concerns about TPP:

Congress has the responsibility to ensure that any international trade agreement entered into by the United States must serve the national interest, not merely the interests of those crafting the proposal in secret. It must improve the quality of life, the earnings, and the per-capita wealth of everyday working Americans. The sustained long-term loss of middle class jobs and incomes should compel all lawmakers to apply added scrutiny to a “fast-track” procedure wherein Congress would yield its legislative powers and allow the White House to implement one of largest global financial agreements in our history—comprising at least 12 nations and nearly 40 percent of the world’s GDP. The request for fast-track also comes at a time when the Administration has established a recurring pattern of sidestepping the law, the Congress, and the Constitution in order to repeal sovereign protections for U.S. workers in deference to favored financial and political allies.

With that in mind, here are the top five concerns about the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that must be fully understood and addressed before passage:

1. Consolidation Of Power In The Executive Branch. TPA eliminates Congress’ ability to amend or debate trade implementing legislation and guarantees an up-or-down vote on a far-reaching international agreement before that agreement has received any public review. Not only will Congress have given up the 67-vote threshold for a treaty and …

2. Increased Trade Deficits. Barclays estimates that during the first quarter of this year, the overall U.S. trade deficit will reduce economic growth by .2 percent. History suggests that trade deals set into motion under the 6-year life of TPA could exacerbate our trade imbalance, acting as an impediment to both GDP and wage growth. Labor economist Clyde Prestowitz attributes 60 percent of the U.S.’ 5.7 million manufacturing jobs lost over …

3. Ceding Sovereign Authority To International Powers. A USTR outline of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (which TPA would expedite) notes in the “Key Features” summary that the TPP is a “living agreement.” This means the President could update the agreement “as appropriate to address trade issues that emerge in the future as well as new issues that arise with the expansion of the agreement to include new countries.” The “living agreement” provision means that participating nations could both add countries to the TPP without Congress’ approval (like China), and could also change any of the terms of the agreement, including in controversial areas such as the entry of foreign workers and …

4. Currency Manipulation. The biggest open secret in the international market is that other countries are devaluing their currencies to artificially lower the price of their exports while artificially raising the price of our exports to them. The result has been a massive bleeding of domestic manufacturing wealth. In fact, currency manipulation can easily dwarf tariffs in its economic impact. A 2014 biannual report from the Treasury Department concluded that the yuan, or renminbi, remained significantly undervalued, yet the Treasury Department failed to designate China as a “currency manipulator.” History suggests this Administration, like …

5. Immigration Increases. There are numerous ways TPA could facilitate immigration increases above current law—and precious few ways anyone in Congress could stop its happening. For instance: language could be included or added into the TPP, as well as any future trade deal submitted for fast-track consideration in the next 6 years, with the clear intent to facilitate or enable the movement of foreign workers and employees into the United States (including intracompany transfers), and there would be no capacity for lawmakers to strike the offending provision. The Administration could also simply act on its own to READ ENTIRETY (CRITICAL ALERT: TOP FIVE CONCERNS WITH TRADE PROMOTION AUTHORITY; By Jeff Sessions; Sessions.Senate.gov; 5/4/15)

The Western Center of Journalism email has greater detail than I have attempted. Unfortunately the WJ email is also one of those disguised fund raisers masked in you making a “donation” for WJ to send out mass faxes. The WJ idea is a good one though. If you are a registered voter your Senators and Representative pay attention. So if you are like me and perhaps a little short of cash there are low cost to no-cost ways to contact Senators and Representatives about your concerns. So if you are passionate about stopping the TPP Fast Track I’ll provide the Congressional contact links. The drawback is you have to take the time to construct your on words. The WJ fax method means your concerns are written for you and all you have to do is add your name and make a donation. I encourage to do the thoughtful way or WJ fax way, but choose one to make your voice known.

Remember which ever you way choose to make contact BE SURE to include your name and complete address including zip code. This is how the politicians know you are a real voter and not Mickey Mouse.

Drudge Blows Lid Off Obama Secret ‘Trade Deal’… This Is Huge

“Some Even Believe We Are Part Of A Secret Cabal… Conspiring With Others Around The World To Build A More Integrated Global Political And Economic Structure—One World… If That Is The Charge, I Stand Guilty, And I Am Proud Of It.” -David Rockefeller

We’re talking about a globalist plot called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)… a dastardly scheme that conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly says will turn over “our authority as a sovereign nation to international authorities.”

Mitch McConnell just did his part for large multi-national corporations and squeezed it through the Senate… BARELY. As a matter of fact, because of your Blast Faxes and calls in stanch opposition to TPP, McConnell had to pull every dirty deal out of his bag of tricks AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE to make it happen.

Make no mistake, your opposition to TPP totally changed the dynamic in Washington… so much so that the ultimate fate of this globalist scheme is presently UNCERTAIN in the House of Representatives.

And now that Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are on the ropes and desperately trying to re-group, at this very moment, to push this globalist agenda through the House of Representatives, we’re in a position to defeat TPP outright… but we must strike now… before McConnell and Boehner can make dirty, behind-the-scenes deals to sneak it past us.

If You’re Thinking That Your Faxes And Calls Are Not A Powerful Weapon… Just Look At What You Just Did To Mitch McConnell.

Two weeks ago, Washington elites were high-fiving one another because passage of this New World Order trade scheme was considered a slam-dunk… a done deal… but that all changed once patriot Americans, like you, started burning up telephone lines and sending avalanches of faxes to Washington.

As a matter of fact, Mitch McConnell literally scrambled to make DEALS with his fellow Senators on the fly DURING THE CLOTURE VOTE when it became clear that the unthinkable was actually happening and he did not have the votes he needed to betray you after all.

According to conservative pundit and the son of former-President Ronald Reagan, Michael Reagan: “The NY Times reports a blur of 11th hour deals on the Senate floor on Thursday saved Obama’s trade agenda from defeat, busting a filibuster to advance legislation that would enable the president to complete a sweeping, 12-nation Pacific trade agreement.”

The Hill, the publication of record for Washington insiders, fleshed out the details: “More than halfway through the vote, it appeared supporters of fast-track might be stuck… McConnell then huddled in the well of the Senate floor… The breakthrough came when McConnell promised [Senator Maria] Cantwell that he would schedule a vote next month on an amendment authorizing the Export-Import Bank. As soon as he did, Cantwell wheeled around and voted ‘Aye,’ followed in quick succession by [Senators] Murray, Heitkamp and Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).”

The Hill added: “McConnell’s proposal also pushed [Lindsey] Graham, who was also in the huddle, to vote yes” and The Hill goes on to state that Orrin Hatch made a last-minute concession to Senator Rob Portman that induced him to vote “yes” as well.

Here’s the bottom line. The political elites in the Senate had to hustle, at the very last minute, to push this betrayal precisely because patriotic Americans pushed back; but, as the New York Times notes, this win “was not the overwhelming victory House supporters had hoped for” and “advocates concede they do not yet have the votes to hand the White House trade promotion authority.”

You read that right. They don’t believe they have the votes. That’s why Boehner and McConnell are hustling, at this very moment, to secure the votes needed to betray you and that’s why you are positioned to deny them that betrayal. McConnell won a battle but, the cost for him was very high and, if you speak out now, we can win the war.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Is A Fraud. It Has Nothing To Do With Trade.

Let’s get down to brass tacks. TPP is nothing more than a pretext for implementing a globalist agenda and eradicating American sovereignty and your freedom.

Don’t take our word for it. Political pundit Dick Morris, hardly a tin-foil-hat type, calls TPP a “fraud” and writes: “The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has nothing to do with trade. While it officially embraces 11 countries plus the U.S., 76 percent of our trade with these nations is with Mexico and Canada, already covered by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Any export growth is likely to have been already covered by NAFTA, making the TPP irrelevant to our trade relations.”

Morris goes on to explain: “The World Trade Organization has reduced tariffs to almost nothing… the US already functionally has free trade with all of the countries of the Pacific Rim” and he adds: “The TPP is nothing but an effort by the globalists to circumvent American sovereignty, transferring a host of issues from the control of the U.S. Congress and the various state legislatures to international trade courts.”

So what’s the real agenda behind pushing TPP? Morris adds that TPP gives “multi-national companies the right to sue the American government to force changes in our laws in a foreign or international court.”

Why is that important? Morris yet again: “Multinational corporations find bureaucrats easy to control, subject as they are to the influences of the revolving door between regulators and those they regulate. Coming from industry or planning to return there, the supposedly disinterested bureaucrats are anything but impartial.”

And just in case you were wondering why TPP is being kept under lock-and-key… just in case you were wondering why the public is not allowed to read it… just in case you were wondering why elected officials must lock themselves in a room in the basement of the Capitol Building to read it and are prohibited from taking notes and must even relinquish their cell phones before locking themselves away to read the bill… the answer should now be obvious.

In a nutshell, multi-national corporations are spending millions (perhaps billions) to convince our elected officials to willingly cede their Constitutional authority and hand our national sovereignty over to Barack Obama and an oligarchy of international corporations… it’s all about the Benjamins… your liberties be damned.

But make no mistake, when enough of our elected officials know that enough of us are on to this little game, they will back down and if multi-national corporations are willing to spend billions to secure their vote, are enough of us willing to reach out to our elected officials to put a stop to this foolishness?

Let’s Recap… Subverting Our Sovereignty For The Benefit Of Globalists Is Not Free Trade… It Is Tyranny.

If you’re still having a hard time believing that TPP will give Barack Obama and globalists unprecedented powers… if you’re having a hard time believing that TPP is nothing more than a concession to an international oligarchy that will cost us our sovereignty, our freedom and millions of American jobs… don’t take our word for it.

Here’s a refresher course on what Phyllis Schlafly says about TPP:

The text of TPP emphasizes that it is a “living agreement.” Translated out of bureaucratese code language, that means the text of TPP can be changed in major and minor ways by executive action after Congress passes the document.

TPP will facilitate the expanded movement of foreign workers into the United States. TPP opens the door to more waves of illegal immigrants and allows Obama to make future changes without any congressional oversight or expiration date.

Kevin L. Kearns of the U.S. Business and Industry Council calls this “another power grab” that will let Obama and his employees rule by executive action. By the device of not calling TPP a treaty (even though it involves 12 countries on three continents), the globalists induce the Senate to abandon the 67-vote threshold for treaty ratification and even the 60-vote threshold for important legislation.

Fast Track turns over some of our authority as a sovereign nation to international authorities, which is a major longtime goal of the internationalists, the so-called kingmakers and big business lobbyists. The code language that hides this in TPP is the statement that calls it a “living agreement.”

Giving Barack Obama, a man who has repeatedly shown his hatred for this country and a willingness to subvert our Constitution, such broad powers is like giving an arsonist a book of matches and a can of gasoline.

Boehner, McConnell and their RINO cohorts are either delusional, corrupt or both; but one thing is certain. The American people did not give Republicans a majority in both Houses of Congress last November so that they could help Barack Obama destroy the United States as we know it… and it’s high time that they got the message.

Schlafly Is Not Alone. Here’s What Others Are Saying…

Here’s what others, on both sides of the political divide, are saying:

We don’t create good jobs for Americans by entering into unbalanced trade deals that forgo congressional scrutiny and ignore the law only to import low-wage labor, undercut American workers, and drive wages lower than the Dead Sea. The Obama administration has fooled and failed the American people for far too long. I cannot support giving this administration trade promotion authority (TPA) for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). … Personally, I wouldn’t trust this administration to negotiate a deal on a secondhand Subaru. -Mike Huckabee

It is simply unbelievable that anybody — and most especially GOP lawmakers — would even contemplate giving this president so-called “Fast-Track Authority” on the TPP. His serial failures to negotiate fair prisoner swaps, sound arms control agreements or sensible diplomatic normalizations neither inspires confidence nor warrants Congress turning its check-and-balance role into a blank check. -Frank Gaffney

Such pacts used to be called “free-trade agreements”; in fact, they were managed trade agreements, tailored to corporate interests, largely in the U.S. and the European Union. -Joseph E. Stiglitz, MarketWatch, The Secret Corporate Takeover Hidden In The TPP

Free trade deals are about profits for corporate America — not bus drivers, hotel workers, teachers, firefighters — real working people. -Larry Hanley, international president of the Amalgamated Transit Union

The president has circumvented Congress on immigration with serial regularity. But the TPA would yield new power to the executive to alter admissions while subtracting Congressional checks against those actions…. The plain language of TPA provides avenues for Obama and trading partners to facilitate the expanded movement of foreign workers into the U.S. -Senator Jeff Sessions

I’m for free trade, but I am not for giving more authority to a president who ignores the Constitution, the separation of powers and will of the American people. This particular president must not be given any more power to do anything else to harm this country. He cannot be trusted. -Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal

Sadly, Barack Obama and political elites within the GOP have finally reached consensus on an issue: What is good for international globalists and multi-national corporations is good for them and they’re willing to give their fat-cat friends lavish gifts even if they must violate the Constitution, give a wanna-be dictator even more power and surrender our sovereignty to make it happen.

We can’t allow Mitch McConnell and John Boehner to give Barack Obama a blank check to destroy our great nation. They must be stopped and the only thing that can stop them is an avalanche of calls and faxes from Americans that lets them know — in no uncertain terms — that we are on to their little game.
