Can’t Make This Up: Hillary Clinton Steals Book Title “What Happened” From Former Bush Press Secretary
Thursday, July 27, 2017 2:46 PM

Hillary Clinton has chosen to name her up-coming book “What Happened.” In the so-called memoir, the former Secretary of State will lay out all the reasons why she lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
It’s rumored Clinton will do a lot of blaming, rather than accept the blame for the epic loss. However, not only can Hillary Clinton not assume responsibility for losing the election, but her legion of aides, consultants and advisors couldn’t even help her select an original book title. As it turns out, “What Happened” is also the name of former President Bush’s press secretary Scott McClellan’s book.

AP reports:

Hillary Clinton is calling her new book “What Happened” and promising unprecedented candor as she remembers her stunning defeat last year to Donald Trump.

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net,” Clinton writes in the introduction, according to publisher Simon & Schuster. “Now I’m letting my guard down.”

Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Thursday that Clinton’s book will be a highly personal work that also is a “cautionary tale” about Russian interference in last year’s election and its threat to democracy.

“What Happened” is scheduled to come out Sept. 12.

Clinton’s upcoming memoir isn’t the first political book to be called “What Happened.” Scott McClellan, a former White House press secretary during the George W. Bush administration, released a book with the same title in 2008. McClellan’s memoir was an unexpectedly critical take on his former boss that became a best-seller.

BOOM! POTUS Trump Crushes Liberal Media Blackout — Tweets on Wasserman Schultz IT Scandal
Thursday, July 27, 2017 2:14 PM

Three brothers who managed office IT for government officials were relieved of their duties in February on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.

Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February.

Imran Awan was arrested on Monday night trying to flee the country with $12,000 of cash on him.

The brothers accessed computers unauthorized. They were getting foreign information. The three brothers were making $161,000, $165,000, and $160,000.
One of the brothers has a criminal background.

According to reports earlier this week Imran Awan was still employed by Wasserman Schultz after his arrest on Monday night.

The fake news media cable networks have completely blacked out coverage of one of the biggest scandals from the DNC yet (besides the Seth Rich murder). According to analysis by Washington Free Beacon, major cable news networks have given no coverage to the burgeoning scandal involving IT staffers to former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

But the media blackout is over—

President Trump tweeted on the Imran Awan story on Thursday morning.

Three brothers who managed office IT for government officials were relieved of their duties in February on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.

Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February.

Imran Awan was arrested on Monday night trying to flee the country with $12,000 of cash on him.

The brothers accessed computers unauthorized. They were getting foreign information. The three brothers were making $161,000, $165,000, and $160,000.
One of the brothers has a criminal background.

According to reports earlier this week Imran Awan was still employed by Wasserman Schultz after his arrest on Monday night.

Former Democratic IT staffer Imran Awan’s attorney released a statement Wednesday after his arrest on Monday.

Imran hired Chris Gowan of Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd & Silva, PLLC to represent him this week.

Gowen is a high powered attorney linked to the Clintons and Clinton Foundation.

WND.com reported:

Despite having declared bankruptcy, the top suspect in the Democrat’s House hacking scandal, Imran Awan, has somehow acquired the services of one of the top power attorneys in Washington.

And not just any power attorney, but one deeply connected to the Clintons.

According to the biography of Chris Gowen on the website of the law firm of Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd & Silva, PLLC, he has:

  • Worked in the White House for former President Bill Clinton (for five years) as a traveling aid (sic) on national and international trips
  • Worked for Senator Hillary Clinton
  • Worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign by directing advance operations
  • And was a fact checker for President Clinton’s memoir, “My Life”

According to his biography at American University, where Gowen is an adjunct professor of law, he “worked on several different initiatives with former President Clinton including”:

  • The Clinton Foundation
  • The Clinton Global Initiative
  • The Clinton Health Access Initiative
  • The Clinton Library

Gowen’s client was arrested by federal agents Tuesday at Dulles Airport in Virginia as he tried to flee the country for his native Pakistan.

Awan was then arraigned in federal court in Washington and pleaded not guilty to one count of bank fraud following allegations he tried to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union. According to an affidavit obtained by the Daily Caller, Awan had wired “$283,000.00, to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan,” on Jan. 18.

Al Gore Ominously Warns Americans To Prepare For “Challenging” Event Happening Soon (VIDEO)
Thursday, July 27, 2017 1:32 PM

Al Gore is known to make wildly inaccurate predictions on climate change. But that didn’t stop Gore from making yet another major claim. While onThe Late Late Show, the former Vice-President ominously warned Americans to prepare for a “challenging” event that will occur in the near future.

Infowars reports:

During an appearance on The Late Late Show, Gore responded to a joke by host James Corden by asking “to be serious for a moment”.

“I think the next few months may be a little challenging for our country and we best gird ourselves for it – this thing is not going well,” said Gore.

The former Vice-President’s statement may be a reference to continual efforts by the Democratic Party establishment and the deep state to de-legitimize Trump in advance of an attempted impeachment or worse.

Earlier this week, we reported on Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne’s claim that he was told by a senior Republican Congressman that there was a plot to “remove Trump suddenly from office”.

Browne said the plan was to “take the president out,” by a method other than impeachment or indictment.

This week, Gore hustled his new documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, to members of Congress. Rightfully so, not one Republican should up to watch a screening of the film.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote:

Not one Republican lawmaker showed up at Paramount and Participant Media’s special Washington, D.C., screening of Al Gore’s climate change documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, for Capitol Hill, organizers tell The Hollywood Reporter.

All 535 members of Congress were invited to the July 19 event, held less than two miles from the U.S. Capitol at the Newseum. Gore, who did a long stint in Congress before serving as U.S. vice president under Bill Clinton, hosted the gathering, which did succeed in drawing scores of Democrats.

Those attending included California’s Nancy Pelosi, minority leader of the U.S. of Representatives; Sen. Bill Nelson; Sen. Jeff Merkley; former Sen. Barbara Mikulski; Sen. Jeanne Shaheen; Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse; Rep. Steny Hoyer; Rep. Suzanne Bonamici; Rep. Danny Davis; Rep. Debbie Dingell; Rep. Alan Lowenthal; Rep. Carolyn Maloney; Rep. Jim McGovern; Rep. Tom O’Halloran; Rep. Tom Suozzi; and Rep. Paul Tonko. Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee — Gore’s home state — also turned out.

La Victoire! Local Residents Force Mayor To Drop Controversial Plans For Migrant Center In Birthplace Of Joan of Arc
Thursday, July 27, 2017 1:23 PM

 

A passionate grassroots campaign by local residents has forced the last-minute abandonment of plans to settle some fifty migrants in an historic French village.

Domrémy-la-Pucelle could be one of a thousand villages in rural France, a tranquil settlement of 120 or so inhabitants set in the wooded Vosges countryside.

Yet this peaceful location has a claim to fame which draws deep from the well of French history; Amidst the uncertainty and chaos of the Hundred Years’ War, it was here in 1412 that Joan of Arc was born and experienced the visions which commanded her to deliver medieval France from occupying English forces – an epic tale steeped in the history and Catholic mysticism of the time which still inspires long after the 19-year-old was captured and burned alive on charges of witchcraft and heresy.

Fast forward six centuries and a more contemporary drama has been the talk of Domrémy these last days”les migrants” – and in particular, the revelation of plans to convert a former boarding school into accommodations for some fifty ‘’unaccompanied minors’’ – due to have been bused-into the village Wednesday from the migrant encampments regularly cleared from the streets of Paris.

 

Residents, fearing their peaceful village would become a ‘’mini-Calais’’, quickly mobilized and launched a spirited collective to fight the project, creating a Facebook page and organizing a packed meeting at the town hall on Monday – reportedly heated – in which the mayor and village council were made aware of public hostility to the project.

Concerns were raised over security, and the character of the historic village being lost. Angry residents demanded to know the rationale in imposing over fifty young migrant men on one of the region’s most touristic villages, itself home to just over 100, mainly retired inhabitants. With no facilities in place, what would the migrants have to do bar wander the streets? The undemocratic nature of the decision – taken without public consultation – was roundly condemned.

 

 

Yet Domrémy-la-Pucelle is but one of hundreds of villages across the country, and one of several in this rural Vosges county selected to receive migrants from central government. Nearby Saint-Dié, Epinal, Monthureux-sur-Saône, Darney and Thaon have seen bus-loads of migrants arrive as the French state zealously pursues a program anathema to traditionalists – the implantation of migrants in seemingly every corner of the country.

The controversial resettlements are part of a policy which sees asylum seekers and migrants from ‘‘saturated’’ Paris redistributed across rural France by the French Interior Ministry; hotels, former military barracks and holiday resorts are routinely commandeered to house a constant flow of arriving migrants, with residents usually the last to find out, a mostly effective tactic designed to defeat local opposition.

Critics charge that the policy is cultural vandalism, changing forever long-established communities which are in many ways the guardians of the national tradition. Others go further; charging that government policy is not merely to take pressure off migrant hotspots but rather a blue-print for installing hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions over the decades to come, a ‘’great replacement’’ of the native population which most politicians scoff at as pure conspiracy.

And yet elements of the theory known here as ‘’le grand remplacement’’ are not without some basis in fact; In 2015, the EU’s Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos, discussed plans to open legal channels for the migration of a staggering 50 million migrants into Europe over the next several decades. Similar figures have previously been proposed in relation to immigration from Africa alone, with the stated goal of importing labor to make up for collapsing birth-rates across the continent.

Earlier this year, a leaked German report revealed that there were almost 7 million migrants ready to cross from North Africa and Turkey into Europe. Other estimates circulating put the number of those on the point of embarking on the journey in the tens of millions.

At Domrémy, residents learned yesterday that their village has earned a last-minute reprieve from the local consequences of an international crisis. As the mayor convenes his municipal council today to make official the abandonment of the project, residents are breathing a sigh of relief.

Contacted by The Gateway Pundit, one opponent to the project hailed the decision as a welcome victory for local democracy and common sense. A grassroots mobilization had successfully changed the minds of the municipality and beyond, according to the activist, keen to avoid the contentious and partisan politics of the wider debate and for ordinary life to resume in the otherwise tranquil village.

Nationally, however, many contend that rigorous border enforcement is the only long-term solution to a crisis with no end in sight, which some are even comparing to the great migrations which followed the fall of Rome.

Too dramatic many would argue but six centuries later the memory of a peasant girl who defied the odds to save her country is inspiring a resistance to what is increasingly seen as a ‘’migratory invasion’’, not least here in the humble village where she was born.

Scaramucci Doubles Down: “If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that.” (VIDEO)
Thursday, July 27, 2017 12:53 PM

On Wednesday night, details of White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci’s financial disclosure were published by POLITICO. Soon after Scaramucci fired off a tweet warning the leak would be reported to both the FBI and Department of Justice. Or so we thought. According to Ryan Lizza of the the New Yorker, Scaramucci had in fact already reported the leak to the FBI and ordered them to investigate Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as the leaker. In his since now deleted tweet about the leak, Scaramucci sent the internet into a frenzy for hinting Priebus was the leaker (a charge the newly-minted White House official later denied).

In a phone interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo Thursday morning, Scaramucci doubled down on applying pressure to Priebus over the leaks saying, “If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that.”

Below is a round-up of last nights events with Scaramucci, Priebus and the leaking incident.

According to reporter Ryan Lizza from The New Yorker, Scaramucci wants FBI, to investigate Reince Priebus for leaking his Financial disclosure!

However, according to National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar, Ryan Lizza reported Scaramucci has ALREADY reported Reince to the FBI over the leak.

White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci took to Twitter Wednesday evening to let his 690,000 followers know that he will be contacting both the FBI and Department of Justice after his financial disclosure leaked. The following tweet is what started this story and has now since been deleted.

“In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting  and the 

Last night, details of Scaramucci’s financial disclosure leaked, outlining his investments and ownership stakes in his former hedge fund SkyBridge and Chinese conglomerate HNA Group.

POLITICO reports:

The incoming White House communications director earned $4.9 million from his ownership stake in SkyBridge in addition to more than $5 million in salary between Jan. 1, 2016, and the end of June, when he joined the Export-Import Bank, according to a financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics. The disclosure form hasn’t been previously reported.

The disclosure highlights the extensive wealth Scaramucci has accumulated in his career — much like many of Trump’s other top advisers and Cabinet secretaries — and also the challenge he faces in extracting himself from the potential conflicts his investments could pose.

The SkyBridge website continues to advertise Scaramucci as the firm’s managing director, despite the fact that he has been a government employee for more than a month. A SkyBridge spokeswoman said Scaramucci stepped down from the executive post Jan. 17, when the company’s sale was announced. He remained an employee of the firm, collecting a salary, until starting at Ex-Im last month.

The investment firm, which Scaramucci founded in 2005, is in the process of being sold to RON Transatlantic and Chinese conglomerate HNA Group. The sale, set in motion in January when Scaramucci was shedding his holdings in anticipation of landing an administration job, has drawn the scrutiny of regulators and is taking longer than expected to close.

Developing: Pakistani IT Specialist’s Brother Held Meeting at Obama White House for Several Hours
Thursday, July 27, 2017 12:40 PM

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Democrats are scrambling over the recent activity surrounding the Muslim Band of Brothers who worked for the DNC over the past few years as IT Specialists.  This story must be really big due to the fact that the liberal mainstream media has not reported on it.

There is a complete media blackout on the story!  Now we know why!

The fake news media cable networks have completely shut down coverage on one of the biggest scandals from the Democrat Party since former DNC worker Seth Rich was murdered.  

Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani IT staffers and brothers who were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach.

Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan.  Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal.   When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too.

Imran and his Muslim brothers, Abid and Jamal accessed unauthorized computers while acting as IT specialists. The three brothers were making $161,000, $165,000, and $160,000 and one of the brothers has a criminal background.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported the FBI seized smashed hard drives belonging to Imran Awan. We also reported that former Chairman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with ‘consequences’ for holding equipment that she says belonged to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani IT staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches.

We now know why the former Head of the DNC was so angry and hell bent on obtaining the material being held by the police. 

One of the brothers is on record meeting in the Obama White House for several hours.

A search of guests at the White House show that Imran’s younger brother Abid was a guest at the White House on Thursday, November 21, 2013.  He arrived at 5pm and didn’t depart for 7 hours.  He attended with another 17 individuals.

What was the IT Specialist doing at the White House for 7 hours after 5pm in 2013, why was he there, who was with him and where was Obama?

Negligent DA’s Let Known ARSON RIOTER Go, Only to Re-offend
Thursday, July 27, 2017 6:00 AM

You may recall the story from a couple weeks ago where a Portland rioter is now facing federal arson charges for tossing burning flares into a Target store and a police cruiser. The suspect is Damion Feller and the event occurred as part of the May Day protest. But what you may not know is that the Multnomah County district attorney, Rod Underhill, had dropped charges on Feller from another protest-turned-riot that happened back in March.

Damion Feller’s previous charges of Reckless Burning and Disorderly were dismissed, just weeks before he went on another arson spree.

According to court documents, Feller had initially been charged with Disorderly Conduct and Reckless Burning, stemming from an event that took place on March 29th, 2017. They even released him on his own recognizance. On April 12th, All of those charges were dropped, aka “No Complaint”ed, just three weeks before Fellers next round of criminal behavior.

But wait, there’s more!

When he was arrested and booked on March 29th, he actually had a warrant out for him from Umatilla County in Oregon, where he was wanted on 2 counts of Failure To Appear, stemming from yet another case where he was charged with Theft Of Services, Trespass, and 3rd Degree Theft, along with a previous Failure To Appear charge. Umatilla had released him at one point due to overcrowding.

So, Multnomah County, where Portland is located, had someone in custody who was wanted in another county, and not only did they let the guy go on his own recognizance on March 30th, but they dropped the Multnomah charges they had on him, while still failing to deliver him back to Umatilla county, where he faced all of the previous charges.

This brings us to May 1st, 2017, where the negligence of the Multnomah County District Attorney and Sheriff’s department gave Feller an opportunity to *ALLEGEDLY* toss burning flares into a Target store and a police cruiser.

Amazingly, they are actually holding Feller in jail still and they have not let him out yet–so at least they finally got it right. But only until after Feller re-offended for the 5th time.

Damion Feller has been arrested several times, and his mugshots are plentiful. He even had the distinction of being featured in the East Oregonian’s Most Wanted list. Yet the DA’s and sheriffs continually let him go, only to see him wreak havoc on the citizens again.

Drone Footage Shows Sad and SHOCKING Decay of Baltimore (VIDEO)
Thursday, July 27, 2017 5:25 AM

Baltimore continues its decline as a city while the ghettos grow further inflamed by the increasing violent crime rate.

The following video by a YouTube user named “Stock Board Asset” shows us through drone video footage the reality of some of Baltimore’s most violent and grotesque areas.

Watch the video below:

Baltimore’s rise in violent crime continues to be such a frequent occurrence that the Baltimore Sun created a “daily homicides tracker”.

The Economist reported back in early July that Baltimore’s murder rate is currently setting “unwanted records”.

“IN MOST places in America, murders are rarer than they have ever been before. Baltimore is not one of them. On June 12th the city witnessed another six killings. That raised the number of homicides in the city during 2017 to 159—the highest recorded mark by that stage of the year since at least 1990, even though the city’s population was much bigger then than it is now. If weighted to reflect the murder rate’s tendency to climb in the hot, fractious summer months, Baltimore is on track to see more than 400 killings this year.”

Parts of the city truly became a strange and near-dystopia wherein the homes are shambles, no one is on the streets, and trash and debris line the sides of the roads.

This is a city under liberal control.

THIS is the future liberals wants.

Like a True Socialist: Bernie Sanders is Allegedly Stealing ‘The Washington Post’ from His Neighbor
Thursday, July 27, 2017 5:01 AM

According to WMAL radio host Chris Plante, Senator Bernie Sanders has been stealing editions of the ‘Washington Post’ from his neighbor. Clearly the washed-up socialist has no principles. 

(Original article from the Daily Wire.)

According to Chris Plante, a man living next to the 75-year-old socialist Senator called the Washington Post angrily threatening to cancel his subscription because he hardly ever receives his copy of the publication. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that his neighbor, Bernie Sanders, had been stealing the Post directly from his mailbox. Perhaps the Senator just considered this “redistribution”.

Here is Chris Plante’s story viaRed State

Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane when they are in Washington DC, live in this house on Capitol Hill, ok? Part of their vast real estate empire. They’re like wannabe Trumps with their real estate holdings.

The next-door neighbor…their neighbor on Capitol Hill called the Washington Post and told the Washington Post that they were cancelling their Washington Post subscription because their very expensive Sunday Post stopped showing up. Not there this week, last week, the week before, then it was there one week but the week before it wasn’t delivered, so I’m cancelling my subscription to the post because your delivery person never gets to me. I’m paying for it but it never gets to me.

The Washington Post said, “Please, do not cancel your subscription to the Washington Post. We will investigate with the delivery person and we will get back to you.”

So the Post investigated. They got back to the person cancelling their subscription to the Post and they said, “Listen, we talked to the delivery person. Our delivery person claims has seen you come out of your house again and again and grab the paper on Sunday mornings. Immediately as the paper delivery person delivers the paper, they’ve seen you come out of your house and pick up the newspaper. So, sir, you are lying to us.”

[The neighbor] said, “Oh, ok, I’ve been coming out and picking up the paper?”

“Yes, and we got a description from the delivery person. You are an older man with gray hair, balding, and little round glasses…”

And the guy said, “I’m like, you know, in my 50s and I’ve got a full head of dark hair. But, my neighbor is Bernie Sanders.”

And Bernie Sanders has been coming out every  Sunday morning and stealing his next door neighbor’s Washington Post.

Comments concerning senator Sanders’ alleged thieving at the 1:14:20 mark.
