Ex-official Bruce Ohr thought to be linked to infamous dossier will face Congress
Bruce Ohr, a formerly high-ranking Department of Justice official who played a mysterious role in the 2016 Trump-Russia investigation, will face congressional investigators Aug. 28.

He was may have been a back-door conduit between Christopher Steele, who wrote a salacious dossier on Trump, and the FBI, the GOP says.

socialist endorsed by Alexandria O-C finishes 4th in primary w 6%
[Vix] State Rep. Kaniela Ing, a self-described democratic socialist endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America
[finished 4th with 6% of the vote in the primary]
, Our Revolution, and Justice Democrats, as well as national progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Reps. Ro Khanna (D-CA) and Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Shaun King, and Bill McKibben. He’s running on a platform including Medicare-for-all but also a unique public housing-based Housing for All plan. He has attracted considerable national attention but lagged in the polls, and faced criticism for using campaign funds to pay his rent.
[he was also fined $15k by the State for false financial filings]

Elizabeth Warren Called Out at Town Hall for Calling Justice System ‘Racist'
[Daily Caller via Western Journal] Sen. Elizabeth Warren was called out at a town hall on Thursday for labeling America’s justice system racist.

Earlier this month, the Massachusetts Democrat trashed the justice system, according to The Guardian.

"Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system: it’s racist," she said, adding that the justice system was flawed "all the way, front to back."

"Our prison system is something that America should be ashamed of. What we do to other human beings is fundamentally wrong," she added during the question and answer session at Dillard University in New Orleans. The session was hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus.

That slam at the justice system did not go over well with one constituent who spoke up Thursday during a town hall in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, according to The Daily Caller.

The Deep State's Authorship and Publication of the Dossier
The Internet is full of information, some of it not well researched or considered, but every now and then a star appears on the horizon. To my mind the new star is Yaacov Apelbaum, who, using his considerable technical skills, has produced a masterpiece of well-documented analysis underscoring the nonsensical and partisan nature of the Mueller operation. He compares this effort by the anti-Trumpers to the plot line of the Dreyfus affair, where falsified evidence and suppressed evidence led to Captain Alfred Dreyfus’s conviction for treason.

It’s lengthy and detailed and on a lovely Sunday in summer you may not want to study it completely, but if this subject is of interest to you, I strongly suggest you bookmark the article and study it at your leisure. I cannot do it justice in any summary, but I’ll try to hit the main points.

Scores Of Registered Voters Over 116 Years Old Found In Ohio’s 12th District
[DAILYWIRE] A new report alleges that there are scores of registered voters who are over 116 years old in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republican Troy Balderson is currently hanging onto a narrow lead over Democrat Danny O’Connor in Tuesday's special election.

Eric Eggers, the research director at the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), reports that GAI accessed voter rolls in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District last August and found "170 registered voters listed as being over 116 years old [that] still existed on the [voter] rolls."

Eggers notes that leftist billionaire and Democratic mega-donor George Soros
...either Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Auric Goldfinger come true...
pledged millions of dollars to fight against voter ID laws in Ohio before the 2016 elections.

While there is no indication that any fraudulent votes were cast in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District's special election, it is important to note that Balderson's narrow 1,564 vote lead highlights the importance of voter ID laws to protect the integrity of elections in the United States.

The Daily Wire reported on Wednesday that "twice as many ballots as the number of registered voters were cast in a northeastern Georgia precinct during the state's primary elections in May."

Last May, Ohio election officials referred more than 50 potential cases of voter fraud from the 2016 elections for further investigation or criminal prosecution, according to cleveland.com.

An article by The Washington Times from January 2017 reported that political experts at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia conducted a national survey that estimated of the believed 20 million non-citizen adults living in the U.S., approximately 6.4% illegally voted in 2016, which equates to more than 1.2 million illegally cast votes.

#6  Congress could pass a law denying citizenship to any person who ever voted illegally in an election in the USA. That would stop the problem. But don't hold your breath.

#7  Denying, rescinding, revoking. Maybe we could then watch /look upon in awe and horror/ as the ambulance chasers union tried to make a buck off this. It would be a melee of prosecution vs. defense, sucking up vast quantities of their time, with the golden ring being Blofeld hisownself. Some good might come of it.

#10  Ohio should take the opportunity to clear up the voter rolls. They might not have time before the mid-terms but they certainly could do it before the next Presidential election.

Evidence Emerges Of Ocasio-Cortez 'Catcalling' Her Democrat Opponent
[DAILYWIRE] One day after she compared an "unsolicited request" for debate to "catcalling," a photo of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez emerged Friday that showed her going to the offices of Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in May of this year in an attempt to shame him into debating her.

The photo was posted by Ocasio-Cortez to her Twitter account where she complained that Crowley was "avoiding a debate" and wasn't "acknowledging" her:

This discovery comes a day after Ocasio-Cortez compared Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro's invitation to debate him to a man "catcalling" a woman and feeling "entitled" to a response. Shapiro offered to make a $10,000 donation to her campaign if she agreed to a debate or discussion on his "Sunday Special" ‐ or, if she preferred, to use the debate to raise money for charity.

Michael Brown's mom running for Ferguson City Council
[NY Post] 15 minutes are up, hon
ST. LOUIS ‐ The Missouri governor’s office said Friday it doesn’t have the authority to appoint a special prosecutor reinvestigate the 2014 fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, despite pressure from Brown’s mother to do so.

Lezley McSpadden said earlier in the day that she’d launched an online petition seeking a new investigation into her 18-year-old son’s death, a case that sparked months of protests and helped fuel the Black Lives Matter movement nationally. McSpadden also announced that she planned to run for a seat on the Ferguson City Council in April.

A spokeswoman for Republican Gov. Mike. Parson said his office "has no legal authority to appoint a special prosecutor in any case." In Missouri, judges can appoint special prosecutors, often at the request of prosecutors who seek to avoid conflicts of interest.

McSpadden has been an activist since her son’s death but has never held public office. On Friday, she said had been surrounded by people who provided her with support and motivation, and they "knew what happened was wrong and didn’t give up the fight."

"I learned to walk again," she said. "And this is one of my first steps: running for Ferguson City Council."

#1  This all started when "the gentle giant" stole a box of cigars. Has anyone in the media asked his momma if she approved of him smoking?

#2  the cigars were for blunts, and no - it wasn't tobacco

#3  So - momma approved? Media doesn't want to be anti mary jane? Inquiring minds want to know...
Posted by: M. Murcek || 08/12/2018 8:20 Comments || Top||

#4  I had to look up what a blunt was. Just not in tune with the druggie culture. Never had any interest.

So far as Brown is concerned, he attacked a cop and got what he deserved.

#5  As a candidate with experience in the care and nurturing of thugs, she should do well in Donk politics. A quick term here and then a run for mayor of Chicago, "The World's Largest Outdoor Shooting Range.

#7  If she wins maybe send her a box of cigars.

She'll put in policies just to prove her precious baby wasn't a thug, but it will lead to disaster.
