Former CIA Director John Brennan Has Meltdown Over McCabe Firing

Except the IG found that he leaked to the media and lied multiple times under oath during their investigation. And the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility recommended his firing. Meanwhile, Brennan himself should have been prosecuted for lying to Congress and just skated past the statute of limitations.

Via The Hill:

Former CIA Director John Brennan tore into President Trump for celebrating the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, saying Trump will be remembered as “a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history.”

“You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you,” Brennan tweeted at Trump.

The former CIA director was responding to a tweet by Trump hailing McCabe’s firing as a “great day for democracy.”

Great Falls, Montana Students ‘Walk-In’ In Place Of National School Walkout

Not buying into the gun violence hype.

Via Great Falls Tribune:

As students across the country participated in the National School Walkout, more than 200 students at Great Falls High took a different approach and staged a “walk-in” to promote school safety.

The morning began with a moment of silence for the lives lost in the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Parkland, Fla. where a former student killed 17 students on campus with an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle. Then, participating students quietly walked to the school gym and wrote down why they chose to walk out and what ideas they have to improve school safety.

During the walk in, media was not allowed to photograph participating students. Great Falls High Principal Heather Hoyer said some students were concerned about backlash they might receive if they couldn’t share their thoughts with anonymity.

The students’ thoughts were compiled into a word wall on display in the gym. At the end of the day, the messages will be taken down and delivered to community leaders.

Wednesday also kicks off the school’s 17 Days of Kindness Challenge.

“We will encourage students and teachers to at least once a day, if not more than once, for 17 straight days to reach out to someone here at the school that they’ve never met before, to thank them for being at school, to ask them to join them at lunch, to invite them into a conversation, to try and make a positive change in someone’s life,” Hoyer said.

‘Angel Dad’: Pelosi Would Want ‘Wall to the Moon’ If Illegal Alien Hurt Her Family

Via Fox News Insider:

The father of a teenager who was murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008 said Friday that Rep. Nancy Pelosi would probably support a border wall if someone in her family was harmed by an illegal immigrant.

“I guarantee you she would go hog-wild, building a wall to the moon if she had to,” Jamiel Shaw, Sr. said.

The House minority leader said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s border wall prototypes were too tall, denounced them as “obnoxious” and said the barrier has no place in a “civilized society.”

Shaw also said on “Fox and Friends” that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf “has blood on her hands” after warning the public about an immigration raid.

He said he wants her prosecuted for aiding and abetting and putting lives in danger.

Is St. Patrick’s Day Cultural Appropriation?

Confuses the social justice warriors.

Via Campus Reform:

With St. Patrick’s Day upon us, millions of Americans will be donning their finest green apparel, drinking copious amounts of Guinness, and attending parades in cities around the country.

Never ones to miss an opportunity to party, college students everywhere will of course be partaking in St. Patrick’s day festivities in bars and frat houses.

But are those students committing cultural appropriation?

For those who don’t have a social justice handbook around, cultural appropriation is “when an individual adopts aspects of a culture that is not their own.”

This year, as in years past, Campus Reform has reported on instances of students being warned against appropriating cultures, and even harassed when failing to heed those warnings.

Following from this logic, one is left to wonder whether non-Irish students should be allowed to partake in St. Patrick’s day festivities.

Wanting to find out if college students saw how their celebrations could constitute cultural appropriation, we hit the streets of New York City.

While most students initially had no problem with the idea of non-Irish folks celebrating the holiday, many quickly realized that by their own definition, it is in fact cultural appropriation to do so.

McCabe Fired Two Days Before Pension Vests

Took long enough.

Via Fox News:

The Justice Department dealt a stunning blow to former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night, firing him just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension after determining that he lied to investigators reviewing the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.

“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.

“After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR),” Sessions said.

“The FBI’s OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe. Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.

“The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability. As the OPR proposal stated, ‘all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.'”

McCabe hit back in a fiery response of his own.

“This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally,” McCabe said. “It is part of this Administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel’s work.

“For the last year and a half, my family and I have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country,” McCabe continued. “Articles too numerous to count have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading allegation against us. The President’s tweets have amplified and exacerbated it all. He called for my firing. He called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service. And all along we have said nothing, never wanting to distract from the mission of the FBI by addressing the lies told and repeated about us. No more.”

Jeff Flake Talks 2020 — ‘It’s Long Odds For Me’

Real long. Like what’s next to zero?

Lame duck Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said that it was “long odds for me” in reference to running for President in a Fox News interview Friday.

Female Trump Official Assaulted By Democrat Operative Speaks Out

Via Daily Caller:

A female staffer serving in the Trump administration was allegedly assaulted on Capitol Hill Thursday by a Democratic operative.

And she’s now sharing her story with The Daily Caller.

Heather Swift, press secretary Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, was leaving a meeting with the House Committee on Natural Resources when she was allegedly assaulted by an American Bridge staffer, who pushed Swift violently while lunging after her boss.

Swift engaged the liberal operative verbally, attempting to protect her boss, but the American Bridge staffer pushed back harder, according to the official.

U.S. Capitol Police quickly arrested the man, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Interior officials have also filed a police report, which will be made public once processed.

Swift told The Daily Caller in an exclusive statement that the American Bridge staffer was much bigger than her and acted like a “lunatic.” She calls the actions of the liberal activist a “violent action” and “very physical.” Swift believes she was “targeted” by the liberal activist and that Democrats need to “denounce” this violent behavior. “Democrats claim to support women but they allow their operatives to assault women,” Swift told TheDC.

Anti-Cop St. Louis Alderman Arrested On Numerous Warrants

He has been hiding out in the open.

Via Blue Lives Matter:

A St. Louis alderman was arrested on multiple warrants after he rear-ended somebody in his car on Monday afternoon.

Police responded to the scene of the collision, and upon running his license, learned that St. Louis Alderman John Collins-Muhammad had five active St. Louis city bench warrants and one fugitive warrant from Jefferson City, KMOV reported.

Collins-Muhammad, 26, was cited for failing to display proof of insurance, following another vehicle too close, and driving with a suspended license in the case of his March 12 car crash.

He was arrested at the scene for his outstanding warrants.

The St. Louis Justice Center confirmed that Collins-Muhammad remained in custody as of Tuesday afternoon, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Jefferson City authorities had not yet determined whether they would transport Collins-Muhammad to face charges in their town.

Records showed the Collins-Muhammad had been arrested by Florissant police in September for an outstanding warrant for driving while his license was suspended, just weeks after a St. Louis city police officer let him go following a traffic stop, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

He was stopped for a traffic violation at about 7:20 p.m. on Sept. 9, 2017. Florissant police ran his license and learned he had a warrant for driving while his license was suspended.

Collins-Muhammad was booked into the Jennings jail on a warrant for his arrest there stemming from a February 2016 case in which he was ticketed for driving with a revoked license and failed to appear in court, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Ironically, Collins-Muhammad has been vocal about traffic safety issues in his ward in north St. Louis, and warned drivers to slow down on a specific street in August because there would be a greater police presence in the area.

On Aug. 14, 2017, St. Louis police stopped Collins-Muhammad for speeding on that exact street, but he didn’t get a ticket.

The officer let the alderman off with a warning, according to a statement issued by St. Louis Police Department spokeswoman Schron Jackson.

That officer now faces the possibility of discipline for that decision, and the Collins-Muhammad got the ticket anyway, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Oakland Mayor Spoke With Illegal-Immigration Activists Before Tipping Off ICE Raid

Via Fox News:

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who sparked national outrage when she undermined a federal immigration raid last month, worked with illegal-immigration activists before she warned the public about the raid– a move that ICE said led to hundreds of illegals evading detention.

Schaaf took to Twitter to warn the public about the raid, and has stood by her decision despite a number of hardened criminals being caught — and ICE officials warning that potentially hundreds of other criminals escaped as a consequence of the tipoff.

“It is Oakland’s legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any laws,” Schaaf said in a statement last month. “We believe our community is safer when families stay together.”

Four GOP Senators Call For Appointment Of A Second Special Counsel

This comes after the House already formally asked for one.

Via Hot Air:

Four GOP Senators have sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting the appointment of a second Special Counsel to look into the FBI’s use of the Steele Dossier.

From Politico:

The Judiciary panel’s chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), was joined by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) in requesting that DOJ name a special prosecutor to zero in on possible mishandling of the FBI’s Russia investigation prior to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. Specifically, the quartet raised concerns about the FBI’s relationship with Christopher Steele, who compiled a dossier of verified and unverified intelligence alleging a Russian effort to compromise now-President Donald Trump.

Grassley and Graham, who previously requested that the DOJ open a criminal probe of Steele’s conduct, on Feb. 28 asked DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz to probe the department’s handling of investigations into Trump transition or campaign officials, as well as the Trump administration before Mueller’s appointment. Horowitz has been investigating possible DOJ misconduct related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation since early 2017.

Capitol Police Arrested Male Dem Operative For Assaulting Female Trump Admin Official

Falsely identified himself as a reporter to police and then committed assault. Should nail him for that as well as the assault.

Via Daily Caller:

U.S. Capitol Police have arrested a male Democratic operative for assaulting a female Interior Department communications official following a House budget hearing Thursday.

In Rare Move, US Publicly Accuses Russia Of Hacking Critical Infrastructure Systems

Via Daily Caller:

Homeland security officials on Thursday blamed the Russian government for a multi-year hacking operation against the U.S. power grid and other infrastructure systems, the first time Washington has publicly accused Moscow of cyber attacks on the energy sector.

Beginning in 2016, or possibly earlier, Kremlin-linked “cyber actors” targeted both government and private and critical infrastructure systems in the energy, nuclear, commercial facilities, water, aviation, and critical manufacturing sectors, according to a security alert published Thursday.

The joint alert, produced by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the FBI, identified multiple incidents where Russian hackers planted malware, conducted spear phishing, and gained remote access into energy sector networks. It did not name facilities or companies that were targeted.

Hostage Grabs Gun, Shoots 7 Taliban Captors While They Were Praying…

Feel good story of the day.

Via AFP:

An Afghan man taken hostage by the Taliban made a dramatic escape by stealing a gun while his captors were praying and shooting dead seven of them and wounding 18 others, officials said Thursday.

Awal Khan and a local police officer were kidnapped Wednesday as they were driving in the eastern province of Paktika, provincial deputy security chief Abdul Rauf Masood told AFP.

Paktika is a Taliban stronghold bordering Pakistan.

The officer was killed and 36-year-old Awal taken to a Taliban compound in Gomal district where he was held for hours.

During afternoon prayers, Awal, who Masood said was handcuffed at the time, grabbed a weapon belonging to one of his captors and opened fire.

“Awal Khan sprayed bullets on all of them, killing seven and wounding 18 others,” provincial governor spokesman Mohammad Rahman Ayaz told AFP.

ISIS Uses Child Executioners In Afghanistan…

Via Daily Mail:

Islamic State’s bloodthirsty offshoot in Afghanistan has released distressing pictures of primary school age kids taking part in an execution.

ISIS leaders in the Middle East have a long and appalling history of allowing small children to execute captives.

But with the collapse of the regime’s self-declared caliphate in Iraq and Syria, the group’s propaganda arm is chronicling atrocities carried out by Islamic State’s fighters in Khorasan Province – known as IS-KP.

The images show the stooping men being marched through woods by the neck by the small boys.

The pictures then capture three kneeling prisoners dressed in orange boiler suits in the wooded area of the province close to the Pakistan border controlled by the group.

Behind them stand two heavily armed fighters who are flanked by two tiny boys – who appear to be around seven.

Lamb After Winning In the 18th District To Challenge Rothfus In 17th District, Says Local Party Official

All that donor money wasted on his run in the 18th.

Via Roll Call:

Democrat Conor Lamb is running in the 17th District against GOP Rep. Keith Rothfus, after winning an upset victory in the 18th District. The news was first reported by the Beaver County Times and confirmed by a local Democratic official.

The move was expected since Rothfus’ seat became more favorable to Democrats in the recent Pennsylvania redistricting. The state Supreme Court imposed a new congressional map, which is still being challenged in federal court. Under the new lines, President Donald Trump would have won Rothfus’ seat by two points.

The Associated Press has not yet called the 18th District election for Lamb, who leads GOP state Rep. Rick Saccone by 627 votes. But signatures to file in the newly configured districts are due on March 20. Saccone has already been circulating signatures in the new 18th District, now the 14th, and Lamb has not yet said publicly where he would run.

But the Beaver County Times reported that Lamb had applied for the endorsement of the Beaver County Democratic Committee, which is located in the 17th District, currently held by Rothfus. Under the new lines, Lamb now lives in Rothfus’ district.

Beaver County Democratic Committee Chairman Stephen Dupree confirmed the report Thursday afternoon. Dupree said an official with the Lamb campaign phoned him on Wednesday and gave him the $150 fee to apply for the committee’s endorsement.

“They erased his district so he now lives in 17th District. Why wouldn’t he run there?” Dupree said of Lamb in a phone interview. “He’s going to have some similar voters. And he’s going to have the same type of voters a lot of Democrats who are socially conservative and pro-gun rights so I think his message of working together is going to go far in this district.”
