Hillary Invokes Watergate During Speech – Forgets To Mention She Got Dumped from Watergate for Being “Liar”

During her commencement address to graduates at Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton compared the investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump administration to the Watergate scandal. She fails to mention her hubby Bill’s little problem.

For the record… Nixon was not impeached – Her husband Bill was.

And Hillary’s former boss during the Watergate hearings said she was a “liar” and “unethical” and refused to hire her. H/T: Gateway Pundit

Trump’s budget is not the dire killing kids and Grandma

So much all of this gloom and doom about the 2018 Budget proposal by Trump. Today a guest post by Mustang with his interesting analysis.

America’s Economic Security

Diaper-headed persons aren’t the only folk capable of throwing bombs.  OMB Director Mick Mulvaney threw one recently and by every measure, the bomb was one of those multiple warhead configurations.  At this early stage, I think it would be fair to say that Trump’s plan for achieving America’s economic security has the leftists quaking in their designer shoes. Here first the Mulvaney presser; it gets interesting around the 9:30 mark.  It is worthy of a few minutes of your time.  For more background on Mulvaney, click here.

The Trump bill calls for a spending cut of $1.74 trillion.  No surprise, the usual suspects are running around proclaiming the bill is dead on arrival.  How’s this for optimism?

In criticizing the previous administration, Mulvaney stated, “Look, if you borrow money … if I take money from you and have no intention of giving it back, that’s not borrowing; it’s theft.”  Rather, Mulvaney stated that he’s offering the American people a 3% growth rate, and a balanced budget in ten years … and he says the Trump administration can do this without touching Social Security and Medicare.

 In any case, the way I see it, Mulvaney’s approach seems to be a centrist position; helping people by weaning them off welfare assistance programs.  This is not an ultra-conservative notion, but it is Reaganesque.  I can support it.  Mulvaney went on to say, “We’re no longer measuring compassion by the number of programs, or the number of people on those programs, but by the number of people we get off of those programs.”

 So, the leftists are screaming bloody murder, but then so too are the ultra-conservatives.  One in particular is a fellow named Peter Schiff.  Peter is a broker, which means that no matter what happens to the economy, he stands to profit by it.  In my view, brokers are somewhat like bookies … they get paid even if you lose.  If you have a few more minutes, here is Peter (not a fan of Trump, or his budget) being interviewed about the Trump economic plan.  (Note: look at the small banner in the upper right side of the screen that reads “Revenge Economics.”  Is this clever, or what?)  What Schiff wants is to stop all entitlement programs, period.  For an expanded background on Schiff, click here.

 Personally, as someone who’s paid in to social service programs against my will for more than fifty years, I want every dime I can get from it.  Still, I would be interested in hearing what the reader’s think about the Trump bill.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz threaten’s Police Chief over hacking scandal, wants evidence returned to her

Americas Watchtower Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatens Police Chief with ‘consequences’ if her computer being held as evidence in a hacking scandal is not returned gives us an update to a story I did a few days ago. Are congress members being blackmailed by IT breach? – a refresher follows update:

As part of the investigation Debbie Wasserman Schulz’s laptop was taken as evidence. Needless to say, she is not happy and she wants her computer back. So much so that she made a veiled threat to the Capitol Police Chief which was caught on video. Here is said video, the relevant part starts at the 2:43 mark:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s computer was not in her possession when it was taken, it was supposedly lost but more likely it was stolen. She claims that because she is not under investigation the computer should be returned to her but the police chief says there are extenuating circumstances, in other words it is possible there is evidence on the computer related to the three brothers who hacked into the system and shared the information on another server. It makes you wonder what she is afraid of.

By the way,it is reported that the brothers have fled back to Pakistan. Here is the refresher:

Are congress members being blackmailed by IT breach? 

Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.

The investigation goes far beyond the theft of millions of dollars. The employees could read all emails dozens of members of Congress sent and received, as well as access any files members and their staff stored. Court records show the brothers ran a side business that owed $100,000 to an Iranian fugitive who has been tied to Hezbollah, and their stepmother says they often send money to Pakistan.

Wasserman Schultz, the victim of a disastrous hack while she was chairman of the Democratic National Committee, renamed Awan an “advisor” to circumvent the Capitol Police’s computer network ban on the brothers. Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge’s office told Politico a month after the ban that she had not fired Imran either.

Another Democratic IT contractor said members “are saying don’t say anything, this will all blow over if we all don’t say anything.” The Awans “had [members] in their pocket,” and “there are a lot of members who could go down over this.”

Every Nine days, a terrorist attack is attempted in Europe in 2017

Time for Great Britain and the world to wake up. The U.S. can no longer be the only country concerned about terrorism and to the Mayor of London, no we will never accept that this is to be accepted.

From Breitbart:  Europe, the United Kingdom, and Russia have witnessed terror attacks or attempted attacks every nine days in 2017 on average, analysis of security incidents has revealed.

Since January, around 45 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists, while hundreds have been injured. The only known incident not linked to jihadism in 2017 was the attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team by a Russian-German national attempting to profit from short-selling stock in the company.

 Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany.

Security services in Britain — population 65 million — are known to be tracking 3,500 potential terror suspects or persons posing a threat. Meanwhile Belgium, with its population of just 12 million, is tracking around 18,000 potential jihadists. List at Breitbart

The enemy is at the gate, they lay siege to our walls, yet no one answers the call to arms!! Where are the Knights, why are they not suited up for the great battle? Are they asleep? Who will slay this beast if not the Templars? The angels are sounding the trumpets, are the sounds of them muffled? This enemy is familiar, we have fought them before, in histories past, come brethren, take up your cross, and fight for God, and the Saints, the beast has reared his ugly head once again!!

 What is the matter with Twitter? Great Britain’s police? The following were removed from Great Britain. Where is the outrage? The UK gave us Freedom of Speech. Time to get a move on.

Over 800 churches harbor illegals in U.S.

I found this report interesting as I had attended the Arch Street United Methodist Church back in the early 1980’s which is discussed. I witnessed the church devolve into allowing the homeless to disrupt services, wandering about, talking out loud. It wasn’t even safe leaving one’s purse behind when going forward to take Communion. Needless to say I left the church as so many others as they become no more than political operations. It’s big money for religion in resettlement of the so called refugees. Check out

Church World Services breaks law, yet receives refugee resettlement funding 

The nine major federal resettlement contractors determining the futures of your cities and states and which like to call themselves VOLAGs (short for Voluntary agencies)—a joke considering how much federal money they receive.

But let’s get back to the story:

A new report reveals how churches nationwide are harboring illegal immigrants, helping them evade federal immigration orders for deportation.

In a 60 Minutes special report, more than 800 churches are acting as mini-sanctuary jurisdictions to hide illegal immigrants from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

ICE has a long-standing policy in which agents do not detain illegal immigrants at churches, making the facilities an ideal spot to avoid deportation orders.

In a Buffalo, New York, church profiled, parish staff confirmed that they recently harbored an illegal alien family of four from Honduras. Since January, the church officials said it protected more than 40 migrants.

Rev. Robin Hynicka of Philadelphia’s Arch Street Methodist Church explained how he believes enforcing federal immigration laws are oppressive to illegal immigrants who remain in the U.S.

“It’s injustice and oppression, all of which is evil,” Hynicka said. “Yeah, when a human being’s human rights are denied, when they can’t stay with their family, when they can’t work, when they can’t participate in the community in which they have deep roots, all of those apply.”

In one specific case, Hynicka’s church has been harboring Javier Flores Garcia, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who came to the U.S. in 1997. Garcia was arrested and convicted for drunk driving, and despite an immigration judge ordering him be deported, he remains hiding out in Arch Street Methodist Church.

Are congress members being blackmailed by IT breach?

Here is another story that the media has no interest in covering but a real who dunnit. This started with Schultz, former head of the DNC , in bringing in these unknowns to work on Congressional IT issues. Worth the full read:

Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information.

Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.

“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.

“There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day, and I’d never work again,” he said.

A House IT employee who requested anonymity said tech workers who have taken over some of those offices found that computers in some — but not all — offices were “thin clients” that sent all data to an offsite server in violation of House policies. Additionally, staffers’ iPhones were all linked to a single non-government iTunes account.

The investigation goes far beyond the theft of millions of dollars. The employees could read all emails dozens of members of Congress sent and received, as well as access any files members and their staff stored. Court records show the brothers ran a side business that owed $100,000 to an Iranian fugitive who has been tied to Hezbollah, and their stepmother says they often send money to Pakistan.
