Franklin Graham warns of deep state coup against President Trump

Via Billy

One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

"I believe we are in a coup d'etat," Franklin Graham said Wednesday on the "Todd Starnes Radio Show." "There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force."

Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

Judge Nap: If FISA Memo Lays Out 'Lawless' Actions, Its Contents Should Be Disclosed on House Floor

Via Billy

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said Thursday the contents of a secret memo on alleged abuses of government surveillance should be disclosed on the House floor.

The House Intelligence Committee is expected to vote on releasing the memo, which some House Republicans have claimed contains "disturbing" information on how the law was used to target the Trump campaign.

On Wednesday, the Justice Department issued a rebuke to the House Intelligence Committee over the memo, stating it would be "reckless" to release the information without it being cleared.

The Midnight Ride that Saved Jefferson and Henry

Listen, my children, and you shall hear of the midnight ride of — Jack Jouett?

Jouett’s mission, like that of his more famous fellow horseman, was to warn American patriots of the approaching attack by British regulars.

While most people have heard of Paul Revere and his ride, forever memoralized by the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, there are few who know anything of Jouett, even though his ride has been described as having had “a greater impact on the outcome of the American Revolution then did Paul Revere’s ride.”

John “Jack” Jouett, Jr. was a man who looked the part of a hero. He stood 6 feet four inches tall and was described by his contemporaries as “muscular and handsome.” He descended from a Norman Huguenot family accustomed to fighting against the oppression of tyrants.

Even though he didn’t have the good fortune of having a Longfellow to immortalize his name and his exploits, Jouett’s story and service to the cause of liberty are every bit as exciting as those of the Massachusetts silversmith.

Jouett was a captain in the Virginia militia and was deployed outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. Late in the night on June 3, 1781, Jouett was sleeping in front of a famous watering hole — the Cuckoo Tavern. He and his unit were bivouacked on the lawn of the building when they were awakened by a sound of several horses approaching the location quickly.

As walls close in on FBI, the bureau lashes out at its antagonists

What happens when federal agencies accused of possible wrongdoing — also control the alleged evidence against them? What happens when they’re the ones in charge of who inside their agencies — or connected to them — ultimately gets investigated and possibly charged?

Those questions are moving to the forefront as the facts play out in the investigations into our intelligence agencies’ surveillance activities.

There are two overarching issues.

A Constitution Inadequate to the Conduct of the War

As General Samuel G. French suggests below, presidential expedients not found in the United States Constitution were invented for initiating war against the South, and for the prosecution of that war. French believed that the New England-armed men in Kansas were responsible for firing the first shot of the war; others have postulated that the war began when the Star of the West left its New York moorings in early January 1861, carrying armed men below decks to South Carolina – when Fort Sumter’s guns were turned against the Americans it was built to protect.  Below, he writes in the immediate postwar.
Bernhard Thuersam,   The Great American Political Divide

A Constitution Inadequate to the Conduct of the War

“Sherman — the fell destroyer — had burned the city of Jackson, Mississippi, and the ruins reminded me of Pompeii. In walking one of the streets I passed a canvas shanty, from which I was hailed by an Israelite with “Good morning General; come in.” He had been in the army and knew me; he had some goods and groceries for sale. When I was leaving, he asked: “General, can’t I do something for you? Here are fifty dollars, just take them; maybe you can pay me back sometime.”

I thought the angel of mercy was smiling down on us . . . I thanked him kindly, and the day came when I had the pleasure of repaying the debt. The servants I had in Columbus had been nominally “confiscated” and set free; so they came to me, almost daily, begging me to take them back to the plantation in Mississippi. As I was not able to do this, I applied to some “bureau,” that had charge of the “refugees,” for transportation of these Negroes, and to my surprise it was granted. As soon as possible they were put on the cars and started for the plantation.

When we reached home we found most of the old servants there awaiting our arrival. To feed and clothe about a hundred of these people, and to plant a crop of cotton in the spring, clothing, provisions, mules, wagons, implements, harness, etc., had to be procured. To obtain funds to purchase the articles enumerated — to commence again — I went to Philadelphia and New York (by special permission of the government) in November.

. . . War is the most uncertain of all undertakings of a nation, and, like the tempest, cannot be controlled, and seldom or never ends as predicted. The North proclaimed that this “little rebellion” would end in sixty days!

It lasted four years, and ended as no one had foreseen. It had to suppress rebellions caused by people who entertained Southern opinions in New York, Chicago, Cincinnati and other cities; muzzle the press, prohibit free speech, banish prominent individuals, arrest men without warrant, and imprison them without charges made known to them; and violated nearly every resolution and pledge made in the beginning relating to the South; they cast aside constitutional law, and substituted martial law, under which the South became a scene of desolation and starvation.

My own opinion is that the first gun was fired, at the instigation of a number of prominent men North, by John Brown at Harper’s Ferry, and for which he was apotheosized and numbered among the saints.

Mr. Lincoln said: “The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. Our case is new. We must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save the country.”

These words indicate that the powers of the Constitution were inadequate to the conduct of the war, and henceforth the war must be conducted as occasion deemed expedient. In other words, the executive must be declared greater than the power that made it, or the creature greater than the Creator, and with dictatorial methods the war was conducted. Avaunt, Constitution, avaunt! We are fighting for the Union, for dominion over the Southern territory again, and so the Constitution was folded up, etc.”

Vince McMahon is reviving the XFL

Via Billy

As for the timing of the announcement, two years before the league's debut, many might point to McMahon's relationship with President Donald Trump, who this fall criticized the NFL for allowing its players to kneel and sit during the national anthem. McMahon said players in his league will not be given the forum to take a personal stance while on the playing field. McMahon's wife, Linda, heads the Small Business Administration in Trump's Cabinet.

WWE founder and chairman Vince McMahon announced Thursday he is giving a professional football league another go.

It will be called the XFL, the same name of the league McMahon and NBC tried for one season in 2001, but it won't rely on flashy cheerleaders and antics as its predecessor did, he said.

The EU—Europe’s New Nazis: The European Union’s War against Free Speech and European Culture

The EU—Europe’s New Nazis: The European Union’s War against Free Speech and European Culture

The European Union and the principal leaders of its supporting member nations are straining every nerve and turning over every rock to stamp out any vestige of the National Socialist (Nazi) Third Reich of Adolf Hitler. Indeed, the Third Reich exhibited many brutal and objectionable totalitarian characteristics, which no free and enlightened people should tolerate. Yet there is now a bitter irony brewing in Europe. The dominant leaders of the EU should simply look in the mirror and see how closely the EU now resembles many of the totalitarian aspects of Hitler’s Germany. The European Union has now evolved into a totalitarian goliath, which suppresses free speech, political opposition, and the religious freedom of Christians and Jews. It wields its powers of economic sanction, relentless media and social propaganda, and even EU member courts and police forces like a sword to marginalize, criminalize, and punish dissent.

At the heart of much of the European Union’s new despotisms has been the unwise welcome of a massive wave of Islamic migration for cheap labor. They have also used forced quotas for the integration of Islam into European communities to dilute and degrade traditional national and regional cultures. They have used the usual mindless sloganeering and cultural Marxist tools of multiculturalism and coercive forms of diversity to undermine traditional values.

Irony Alert: A Thousand Private Jets Deliver Globalist Elite to Davos for Climate Change Summit

More than 1,000 private jet flights have been delivering globalist elites to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, where attendees are discussing — among other topics — the ‘major threat’ of climate change.

Airports around the Swiss ski resort will see the number of private jets spike 335 per cent during the annual meeting of world elites, according to Air Charter Service (ACS).

Research commissioned by the jet hire company found an average 218 private jet movements a day during the weeklong forum, compared to the 65 daily flights Swiss airfields usually deal with.
Andy Christie, group director for executive jets at ACS, said clients last year opted for expensive “heavy jets” to their lighter, more environmentally-friendly alternatives, with Gulfstream GVs and Global Expresses both being used more than 100 times each.

“With the length of some of the journeys, these slightly larger aircraft would have been needed, but with such wealthy individuals attending, they can afford to use such aircraft from wherever they were coming – as well as the element of larger aircraft being seen as a status symbol,” he said.

Faith in FBI Plummets as 49 Percent Plurality Demands Special Prosecutor

A Rasmussen poll shows that a plurality of 49 percent of those polled want a special prosecutor to investigate the embattled FBI, while only 31 percent do not. Another 19 percent are on the fence.

According to this poll, the public vehemently disagrees with James Comey, the disgraced former FBI Director who has used his Twitter account to call for an “independent” FBI, which presumably means an FBI that is never criticized or investigated by the American people’s chosen representatives in Congress–a frightening thought by way of a banana republic attitude.

Thankfully, despite the best efforts of Deep Staters like Comey and the corrupted American media, the public is paying attention to the story and is very skeptical of an agency that appears to have been highly politicized during Comey’s reign.

Retractable AR Bayonet Spike - Backpack and Mobile Trauma Kit/Plate Carrier - Magazine Clips

In the running for coolest product I’ve seen at SHOT Show 2018 is the Stinger from American Defense Innovations.  This wickedly-wonderful accessory for AR-pattern rifles is a retractable bayonet spike!

Over in the tactical wing of SHOT Show, I expect to see a lot of products that are gimmicks. I also expect to see a lot of things that are a bad idea, even if they are in Multicam.

So it was with some apprehension that I was sent to learn about a bag. Fortunately for me, this one turned out to be a winner.

Simple. Cheap. And very handy. Recover Tactical’s clips allow you to carry spare mags on your belt. No pouch required.

They’re also ideal for pocket carry.  Instead of having your mag deep in your pants’ pocket, dangling around, the clip keeps it right at the top.  Sorta like a clip on a pocket knife.

A Graphic: Fusion GPS and the ‘Insurance Policy’ to Prevent Trump From Becoming President

How did a piece of opposition research, described by former FBI Director James Comey as both “salacious and unverified,” become the driving force behind the allegations that Trump colluded with Russian authorities?

Research conducted by The Epoch Times, using public sources, shows a web of connections related to the dossier reaching the highest levels of the FBI, CIA, and the Obama administration.
Paid for by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, and produced by Fusion GPS—whose other clients include the Russian government—the dossier appears to have been the basis for the FBI’s investigation into Donald Trump.

Bill Kristol on Fox News host Tucker Carlson: ‘Close now to racism’


Bill Kristol knew he was treading on sensitive turf. In a chat with CNBC’s John Harwood about Fox News, Kristol, the editor at large of the Weekly Standard, was attempting to characterize the political bent coming from host Tucker Carlson: “I mean, it is close now to racism, white — I mean, I don’t know if it’s racism exactly — but ethno-nationalism of some kind, let’s call it. A combination of dumbing down, as you said earlier, and stirring people’s emotions in a very unhealthy way.” Just what is “close” when it comes to racism?

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe All Named In FISA Memo, First Leak Reveals


A bombshell four-page "FISA memo" alleging egregious surveillance abuse by the FBI, DOJ and Obama administration, specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to the Daily Beast.

The GOP-authored memo made waves last week after it was made available to the full House of Representatives for viewing. With over 60 GOP lawmakers calling for its release, Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle tell The Daily Beast that it's only a matter of time before the general public is allowed to view the document - which is likely to stoke already-inflamed tensions between GOP lawmakers and the individuals named in the leak.

Justice Department inspector general finds missing FBI texts between Peter Strzok, Lisa Page

Via Billy

The missing text messages between FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok have been located, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., in a letter Thursday.

The text messages were missing from a critical five-month period — Dec. 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017 — because of an alleged technical issue on FBI-issued mobile phones.

“[F]orensic tools,” were successfully used to retrieve the texts, the inspector general said.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said this week that he had asked the inspector general to figure out if the text messages — roughly 50,000 — were retrievable.

CIA Director Says Trump Understands Intel at the Level of a '25-Year' Veteran

CIA Director Mike Pompeo complimented President Donald Trump's ability to understand intelligence briefings Tuesday, saying the president's grasp of the information is similar to that of a 25-year agency veteran.

“I have seen 25-year intelligence professionals receive briefings. I would tell you that President Trump is the kind of recipient of our information at the same level that they are,” Pompeo told Marc A. Thiessen during a Q&A session with the American Enterprise Institute.
