Anti-Trump protesters asked to leave LPGA Tour event
[Wash Times] PHOENIX (AP) -- About a dozen people protesting the U.S. Women’s Open being played at a course President Donald Trump owns left peacefully Saturday after security officials asked them to leave the front entrance of the LPGA Tour’s Bank of Hope Founders Cup.

Members of the group UltraViolet protested for less than 30 minutes before they were asked to leave the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa. UltraViolet said a plane was set to fly over the course later with a banner reading "LPGA: TAKE A MULLIGAN. DUMP SEXIST TRUMP."

The U.S. Golf Association-run U.S. Women’s Open is July 13-16 at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, a few miles from the USGA’s headquarters in Far Hills.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI's Own Political Terror Plot; Deputy Director and FBI Brass Secretly Conspired to Wage Coup Against Flynn & Trump
Mere days before Gen. Michael Flynn was sacked as national security advisor, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe gathered more than a dozen of his top FBI disciples to plot how to ruin Flynn’s aspiring political career and manufacture evidence to derail President Donald Trump, according to FBI sources.

McCabe, the second highest ranking FBI official, emphatically declared at the invite-only gathering with raised voice: "Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump," according to direct sources. Many of his top lieutenants applauded and cheered such rhetoric. A scattered few did not.
'A few did not'.... hence this reporting.
This was one of several such meetings held in seclusion among key FBI leaders since Trump was elected president, FBI sources confirm. At the congregation where McCabe went off the political rails and vowed to destroy Flynn and Trump, there were as many as 16 top FBI officials, inside intelligence sources said. No lower-level agents or support personnel were present.


If you are among the millions of Americans who have pondered in recent months whether the Obama-era "Deep State" intelligence apparatus and FBI are working for or against Trump, this is the first definitive proof that the country’s once-premiere law enforcement agency has gone rogue.

The non-elected Deep State hierarchy that steer the FBI have declared war on President Trump and his White House inner circle. Make no mistake.

Days after the McCabe tirade, Flynn was forced to resign. That was no coincidence. This is how secret coups waged by the top law enforcement personnel in the top law enforcement agency in any country operate. Efficiently. If the FBI wants you silenced or out of a job, you’ll be unemployed. Ask Michael Flynn and countless others.

Part of the plan hatched at that gathering was to make sure Flynn’s wiretapped conversations were leaked to the media, FBI and intelligence sources said. They were. Did the FBI leak this classified intelligence to the news media? Isn’t that a question President Trump and Congress should be posing? If nothing else, McCabe and his FBI secret council are certainly now suspects of who possibly leaked the intelligence. Seems that a number of polygraphs should be in order.

Embattled FBI Director James Comey did not attend these private meetings of his interoffice revolutionaries, sources said, though he was aware of the gatherings yet did not discourage them or McCabe’s inflammatory and dangerous rhetoric. Some FBI agents have questioned if the Anti-Trump attitude shared in the secret sit downs with the bureau’s top brass is now the official platform of the FBI. The FBI, many agents quietly agree, has proven no friend to the newly minted US president. And they are beginning to understand why.

As far as waging political coups go: So far, so good. The FBI’s secret plan to ruin Flynn worked. And fast. Flynn is long gone. Now they can focus on ruining President Trump. After all, Isn’t that the role of the FBI? Tampering with the president of the United States and his inner circle, neither of whom have broken any laws?
Pre-regime change ?
It turns out, however, the FBI isn’t very good at the spy game. McCabe’s dictatorial tone ruffled a number of agents at FBI headquarters who still believe the mission of the bureau is not to wage clandestine warfare against the sitting president and his administration.

McCabe and Comey did not respond to requests for comment. Flynn could not be reached for comment.

This isn’t McCabe’s first rodeo in the cross-hairs of controversy at the FBI where he is outranked only by Comey. In fact, McCabe garnered problematic headlines during the 2016 presidential election.

#1  Is McCabe still working for the government?

#2  This is treason and people need to be seen being convicted and sentenced long prison terms or death.

#3  I prefer the old sentence for treason.

Once found guilty they are dancing at the end of a rope in the town square.

Gets the message across to those still plotting.

Too many A&M, Tech, Auburn, and VMI graduates signing on. It was only a matter of time until the culture began to change.

#7  Obama politicized our entire Federal law enforcement organization from DOJ to FBI to ICE, you name a Federal agency with law enforcement responsibilities and Obama crammed them full of true believers and leftists.

I don't understand why Trump hasn't put this clown in handcuffs and sent him to some cozy room with iron bars and a stainless steel bucket.

#8  "More questions have arisen over the large donations by Clinton operative Terry McAuliffe to the State Senate campaign of the wife of of the FBI director responsible for investigating Hillary Clinton’s illicit email scandal.

Not only was it revealed that a political action group tied to the Clintons had donated $500,000 to a first-time candidate for office, but it has been found that Hillary Clinton herself headlined an event to raise money for the PAC that gave the rich donation to the candidate."

"McCabe, as it happens, is the wife of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, the official in charge of investigating the emails found on Hillary Clinton’s private server when she was Obama’s Secretary of State."

More Questions Over Massive Donation by Clinton Operative to FBI Investigator’s Wife

Connecting the dots ... I would say treason.

Persistent Rumors... hey now that's catchy. Maybe that can be the title for a new TruePundit spin-off site.

#13  Depot Guy - the facts in #8 are FACTS. Your skepticism is warranted but overdone. Apologist soon?

#14  Depot Guy goes around "correcting" everyone else on this site daily hoping it will elevate and legitimize his ignorance. Which only reinforces his image of ignorance.

With Friends Like These, Who Needs Democrats?
Less than two months in, Republicans have emerged as one of the biggest obstacles to Trump's young administration, imperiling his early efforts to pass his agenda and make good on some of his biggest campaign promises.

#1  Draining the swamp includes flushing out of the legislative process all of those phony-baloney RINOs who have polluted the gene poll on the Republican side of the aisle.

As these clowns get exposed for their obstruction, the same people that voted in Trump will have a say in the primaries...it will be very interesting to say the least.

FAKE NEWS ALERT: Washington Post Changes Headline After Acknowledging Illegals on Gov't Aid
The Washington Post doesn’t want you to know that illegal aliens are receiving food stamps, or at least it doesn’t want that information in their headlines.

On Thursday, readers noticed a subtle shift in headlines under its ’Wonkblog’ column. What initially read as "Immigrants are now canceling their food stamps for fear that Trump will deport them," was quickly changed to "Immigrants are going hungry so Trump won’t deport them".

Contributing writer to the Daily Caller noticed the subtle shift. He tweeted:
