Mexican Troops Drew Weapons On American Soldiers On US Side Of The Border

Mexican troops in the wrong, fortunately no one was hurt.

Via Washington Examiner:

Mexican troops questioned two U.S. soldiers along the two countries’ border earlier this month. The American soldiers were on the U.S. side of the border conducting a routine surveillance operation, defense officials say.

Military officials from the U.S. Northern Command said that “five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations.”

The soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection vehicle near the southwest border in the vicinity of Clint, Texas.

Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be assault riffles. They drew their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers and ordered the U.S. troops to return their weapons to a military vehicle. According to officials, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”

Actress Emma Thompson Flies 5,400 Miles To Give Speech On Climate Change, Rails Against ‘Hypocrisy’

But she cares.

Via Daily Wire:

Actress and self-described “climate change activist” Emma Thompson flew from Los Angeles to London — some 5,400 miles — to give an impassioned speech on climate change at an Extinction Rebellion protest. Ironically, the famed actress railed against the “hypocrisy” of her government concerning climate change while at the protest, fresh off her long flight to London. And adding insult to injury, the protest announced plans to block flights out of a major airport on the day Thompson arrived.

The Independent reported Friday that Thompson said in a video prompting the event that she “was unable to be at the first day of the protest because she was ‘away’ with her husband as she turned 60.”

“I absolutely wanted to be arrested on my 60th birthday but I didn’t quite manage that. I’m so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion,” the actress said.

“A representative of Dame Emma said she needed to take the 5,400-mile flight home to London after working in LA,” the report said.

Ironically, young people attending the protest announced plans to target the Heathrow Airport because “air travel is so damaging to the environment,” Sky News reported.

NY Times Finally Admitting Steele Dossier Isn’t True, Others Insisted It Had To Be Viable Because Not ‘Proven Untrue’

NY Times finally catching up to the truth. But there are a lot still not getting it, even now.

Via Twitchy:

A New York Times report about the Steele dossier has torpedoed many of the talking points that were used as reasons to launch a special counsel investigation, and many claims made in the past couple of years are aging badly, as Brit Hume noted.

Byron York shared the New York Times story that comes on the heels of the Mueller report, and it provides a picture of the last bit of Resistance narrative sinking below the surface:

New York Times Thought The ‘Body Of Christ’ Priest Saved From Notre Dame Was A Statue

And these are the guys writing the ‘news.’

Via Daily Wire:

According to the Washington Free Beacon, for some inexplicable reason, the journalistic outlet to rival all other outlets – The New York Times – reported that the “body of Christ” saved from the flaming Notre Dame cathedral earlier this week was a statue, even though no other media outlet reported it as such, and even though the most rudimentary understanding of Catholicism would lead one to conclude the term “body of Christ” does not refer to a statue.

The Times story detailed the heroic work of Paris Fire Department chaplain, Father Jean-Marc Fournier, and his effort to save priceless relics from the Notre Dame fire, including the crown of thorns (believed to have been worn by Christ at his crucifixion) and the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, also known as “the body of Christ.” Here’s what the article said:

As the chaplain began removing a statue of Jesus, he said, his colleagues were fighting the fire from the cathedral’s towers. The flames had started to threaten the wooden structure around the belfry — putting the whole cathedral at even greater risk.

With the statue in hand, Father Fournier, alone in the nave, gave a benediction to the cathedral, he said.

‘I thought Jesus could help us a little bit and work, too,’ he said. ‘I invited him to worry about his own house if he didn’t want to finish the night under a tent by the Canal Saint-Martin.’

Catholic doctrine states that the wafer and wine become the literal body and blood of Jesus Christ when a priest consecrates it while still retaining its original form – a process known as transubstantiation.

Warren Becomes First 2020 Candidate to Call for Impeachment Proceedings Against Trump

No obstruction, no overt act and no underlying crime to obstruct.

Via Free Beacon:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) became the first 2020 presidential candidate to call for the initiation of impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump on Friday, calling it the “constitutional duty” of Congress following the findings of the Robert Mueller report.

Warren sent out a series of tweets Friday afternoon saying the partially redacted Mueller report released Thursday had laid out the facts of Russian interference in the 2016 election and wrote Trump “obstructed the investigation into that attack.” There was no other recourse for his actions than impeachment, she said.

“To ignore a President’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways,” she tweeted. “The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States.”

Warren told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Friday that she read the full report and insisted it wasn’t anything personal regarding Trump, with whom she has clashed repeatedly.

Mueller Report Exposes String Of Anonymously Sourced Stories That Got It Wrong

Some of the many they got wrong.

Via Daily Caller:

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling revealed a string of anonymously-sourced stories about the investigation were inaccurate.

BuzzFeed and McClatchy each added editor’s notes to two stories following the publication of the Mueller report, which also contradicted an explosive CNN report and called into further question a bombshell story in The Guardian.

The Mueller report directly contradicted a Jan. 18 BuzzFeed story alleging that Mueller had evidence President Donald Trump ordered Michael Cohen, his former attorney, to lie to Congress about his exploration of a potential Trump Tower Moscow deal in 2016.

The story claimed that Cohen “told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.”

But Mueller’s report states: “Cohen said that he and the President did not explicitly discuss whether Cohen’s testimony about the Trump Tower Moscow project would be or was false, and the President did not direct him to provide false testimony. Cohen also said he did not tell the President about the specifics of his planned testimony.”

A June 2018 BuzzFeed story fingered former Russian Olympic weightlifter Dmitry Klokov as a potential go-between for Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

WH Reporter April Ryan ‘Playing Victim’ After Mike Huckabee Slams Her ‘Incitement’ Against Sarah Sanders

Rule of thumb for Democrats/media: anything they say is fine, anything a Republican says is “incitement.”

The Mueller report not living up to a Democrat narrative that the media helped pushed for more than two years has people spinning like the wind to find other angles. One such approach is to take aim at something Sarah Sanders told the media about the firing of James Comey, and reporter April Ryan is calling for firings at the White House, using violent rhetoric to do so (or rhetoric she might consider violent if a Republican used it):

Huckabee Lashes Out At Trump Critic Romney: ‘Makes Me Sick’ You Could Have Been POTUS

Romney is scum.

Via Fox News:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee lashed out at Sen. Mitt Romney after the Utah Republican said he was “sickened” by the level of dishonesty from President Trump’s administration in response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Know what makes me sick, Mitt? Not how disingenuous you were to take @realDonaldTrump $$ and then 4 yrs later jealously trash him & then love him again when you begged to be Sec of State, but makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS,” Huckabee tweeted Friday.

Earlier in the day, Romney tweeted that it was good news that there was insufficient evidence to charge Trump with collusion or obstruction of justice. The former GOP 2012 presidential candidate then blasted Trump and his campaign for having contacts with Russians.

“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney posted.

“I am appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement,” he wrote.

Watch: CNN’s April Ryan Demands Sarah Sanders Be Fired, Nearly Breaks Down In Tears

Ryan is completely unhinged.

Via Daily Wire:

CNN analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan said Thursday that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has to be fired, claiming the press secretary lied to the American people concerning the Russia probe. Ryan, appearing emotionally distraught and angry, also suggested to CNN host Erin Burnett that Sanders is in-part responsible for threats she and her colleagues in the media have faced.

“Not only does [Sanders] not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan said on CNN’s “OutFront.” “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story.”

“When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off,” she continued. “It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ — she needs to go.”

Ryan was referring to Sanders telling the press in May of 2017 that “‘countless’ FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the ‘vast majority’ of them supported his leadership,” Fox News reported, adding, “According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a ‘slip of the tongue’ and was ‘in the heat of the moment,’ admitting that it was not founded on anything.”

Sanders addressed the discrepancy on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Friday. “It was the heat of the moment, meaning that it wasn’t a scripted talking point. I’m sorry that I wasn’t a robot like the Democratic Party,” the press secretary told George Stephanopoulos.

House Republicans Leave Border Tour Shocked To Learn Immigrant Children Being Recycled By Smugglers

All because of Democrats, who claim they care about kids.

Via Washington Examiner:

YUMA, Ariz. — Congressional Republicans who toured part of the southern border this week saw first-hand the number of families and children.

But the House lawmakers were shocked at the idea that smugglers recycle children across the border.

“I think the entire delegation was shocked,” said Luke Ball, press secretary for Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

The Washington Examiner was riding along with Reps. John Joyce of Pennsylvania, Pete Stauber of Minnesota, Dusty Johnson of South Dakota, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Gaetz Tuesday night when officials leading the tour pointed to a group of more than 40 people who had just crossed through the Colorado River south of the Morelos Dam and surrendered to Border Patrol agents less than a quarter-mile into the U.S.

“Right now, they’re getting their biographical information: name, first name, last name, date of birth, nationality. Right now, they may ask them where they’re going — how many people, if it was a family unit, were they by themselves, were they minors?” an agent, who spoke on background, told the group of lawmakers.

‘Dead’ Dog Escapes Grave, Shocks Owners, After Being Accidentally Buried Alive

Via Fox News:

In headlines that mirror a horror flick, an elderly dog in Russia recently shocked its owners when it returned from the grave, alive and well, after being accidentally buried alive.

Two sisters in the village of Novonikolsk, Primorsky Krai, recently buried their 18-year-old dog named Dik after he remained motionless “for a long time,” apparently having passed away in his sleep, International Business Times reports.

The heartbroken owners took the pooch to a local pet cemetery and said what they thought would be goodbye forever — but Dik had other plans.

Reportedly laid to rest in a shallow grave, Dik was able to dig himself out of the earth, and was soon found “exhausted” on the side of a road by passersby. The rescuers took the pup to Otkroi Svoe Serdtse (Open Your Heart) animal shelter, where officials shared photos of the lost dog to social media, according to The Daily Mirror. Catching wind of the news, Dik’s overwhelmed owners were able to retrieve him again.

Some FBI Agents Were In Fact Fed Up With Comey

Media were more upset over Sarah Sanders ‘lie’ (saying there were countless FBI people) than their own two-plus years of false stories.

Via Daily Caller:

Reporting done previously by The Daily Caller confirmed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ claim that some FBI agents were indeed unhappy with former FBI Director James Comey’s leadership.

The Caller reported in October 2016 that FBI agents lost confidence in Comey after seeing how the bureau handled the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. But since the release of the Mueller report, media outlets have pounced on Sanders for saying that FBI agents had issues with Comey.

USA Today reported Thursday the Mueller report notes that Sanders told reporters on May 10, 2017 that Comey had been terminated from his post because he had lost the confidence of President Donald Trump, the Department of Justice and members of both parties in Congress.

Post-Mueller, Buzzfeed FINALLY Admits Its Debunked Cohen Story Was Wrong

The Mueller report proved several media stories false, this included.

Via MRCTV:

One day after U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr publicly released a redacted version of the Mueller report, which concluded that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government to rig the 2016 presidential election, Buzzfeed is finally admitting its earlier reporting that Trump had “directed” his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a building project in Moscow was…well, complete crap.

First reported in January, Buzzfeed’s “bombshell” story was fawned over by the liberal media…for about 24 hours. Shortly after Buzzfeed published the damning accusations, the Mueller team, in a rare break from their historically stoic silence, stated that Buzzfeed’s report was totally false.

The publication stood behind their reporting, though – until Friday, when the outlet published a “note” at the top of its original report admitting that its earlier report was factually wrong.

Ocasio-Cortez, Omar And Tlaib Call For Impeaching Trump

It’s a high crime and misdemeanor that anyone voted for these three.

Via Daily Wire:

Determined to ignore House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said in March that she had no interest in attempting to impeach President Trump, the three freshman Congresswomen who have established themselves as the loudest members of the Democratic Party sallied forth yet again on Thursday, reacting to the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report by demanding the impeachment of the president.

Pelosi had told The Washington Post, “I’m not for impeachment. Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”

But Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who gained a modicum of fame the night she was elected to Congress by screaming, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf*****,” tweeted, “Everything outlined in the #MuellerReport is further proof of what I’ve been saying for a long time: it’s #TimetoImpeach. The first step? The House Judiciary Committee launching an investigation into whether Trump committed impeachable offenses.”

James Clapper Says He Finds “Passive Collusion” In Mueller Report

He has a very active delusion about passive collusion. In part, likely because of his role in pushing the lie.

Via Daily Caller:

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he believes the Mueller report demonstrates “passive collusion” from President Donald Trump if not “active collusion.”

Clapper suggested Thursday that candidate Trump was perhaps “unwittingly” advancing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, in a CNN interview reported by Fox News.

“If there wasn’t active collusion proven, then I think what we have here is a case of passive collusion where in some cases, unwittingly, to include candidate Trump himself, who retweeted messages that had been planted by the Russians in social media,” the CNN national security analyst said in an interview with Anderson Cooper. “That’s a small, but important, example of how members of the campaign were used and manipulated by the Russians.”

Clapper reiterated his position that the inquiry by the special counsel was entirely necessary because there was “good reason” for the intelligence community “to be concerned about whether or not there was some kind of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

Citizen’s Militia Takes 200 Illegal Aliens Into Custody In New Mexico For Border Patrol, Liberal Media Flips Out

They’re upset about these guys, but not the illegal aliens, the drugs or the cartels that these folks have to deal with crossing their lands.

Via Fox News:

An armed right-wing militia group operating along the U.S.-Mexico border posted several videos to social media this week, including one in which they held about 200 asylum-seeking migrants at gunpoint near Sunland Park, N.M., until U.S. Border Patrol agents arrived, according to a report.

The militia group, which calls itself the United Constitutional Patriots, said it is determined to monitor the border until President Trump fulfills his campaign promise of a border wall or until Congress enacts stronger legislation to make it more difficult for migrants to request asylum, Jim Benvie, a spokesman, told The New York Times in a phone interview.

Alan Dershowitz: You Can’t Have Obstruction For Constitutionally Allowable Action

Saying “I want to fire Mueller” is also not obstruction when there’s no overt action to actually do the firing or actually interfere in the case.

Via The Hill:

Now that the Mueller report has been released, the spin game begins. Each side has been given sufficient material in the report to claim victory and to attack the other side.

President Trump has said this was a good day. And it was, from a legal point of view. The report concluded that there is absolutely no evidence that anyone in his campaign (or any other American) illegally conspired with Russian operatives who were determined to try to influence the outcome of the election. That is the good news for Trump. It vindicates him legally on his claim from Day One that there was no collusion.

The bad news is that the report contains information – much of which has been disputed by the Trump legal team – of non-criminal, but not very nice, behavior on the part of the president and some of his associates. Such conduct includes repeated misstatements about who knew what regarding meetings and other contacts.

On balance, however, President Trump comes out way ahead on the Russia collusion issue. Putting aside legalisms, it really appears as if there was no actual collusion.

On the obstruction issue, the bad news for President Trump may exceed the good news. Although the report “does not conclude that the President committed a crime,” as it states, it also refuses to “exonerate him.” Already, Democrats are arguing that Congress can revisit the obstruction evidence and come to its own conclusions about whether President Trump’s conduct constituted obstruction of justice. The catalogue of ten instances of possible obstruction provide a roadmap for Congress to further investigate, even if in the end it decides not to impeach.

Attorney General William Barr and special counsel Robert Muller apparently have a fundamental disagreement over whether a president can be charged with obstruction of justice if he merely engaged in an act authorized by the Constitution but with an improper motive.

Barr takes the view – a view that I have argued for many months – that the act requirement of a crime (actus reus) cannot be satisfied by a constitutionally authorized action of the president, such as firing FBI Director James Comey. Mueller takes the view that a constitutionally authorized act can be turned into a crime if it is improperly motivated.

George Mason University President Has ‘Painful’ News For Students Still Upset With Kavanaugh Hiring

The funniest thing about this? He’s teaching in England, most of these people who are so “pained” aren’t even going to be there, they’ll still be in Virginia. But the pain is still just too much.

Via Daily Wire:

George Mason University students upset about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh teaching a class in England this Summer have, in so many words, been told by president Angel Cabrera to take a hike.

Earlier this month, triggered students at GMU demanded that Kavanaugh be removed from the faculty despite his class being taught in Runnymede, England — where the Magna Carta was signed. The students argued that women would be deeply harmed by Kavanaugh’s presence among the faculty due to the sexual assault allegation brought against him by Christine Blasey Ford without corroborating evidence during his confirmation hearing.

“The hiring of Kavanaugh threatens the mental well-being of all survivors on this campus,” a female student told The College Fix at the time.

According to HuffPost, GMU president Angel Cabrera told students that while he understands they are upset about Kavanaugh’s hiring, the university will not reverse course.

“Even if the outcome is painful, what’s at stake is very, very important for the integrity of the university,” Cabrera said during a two-hour town hall, prompting gasps from the audience.

“Oh, my God,” one female student gasped in response to the news.

Students have been fighting hard to get Kavanaugh kicked off the faculty and his three-year teaching contract terminated.

“GMU’s student government organized the event, along with student group Mason for Survivors,” reports HuffPost. “The town hall comes after protests, an ad campaign and a student-led petition with more than 10,000 signatures opposing Kavanaugh’s hire.”
