House Judiciary Committee subpoenas AG Sessions for McCabe, FISA and Russian investigation documents

A week ago on September 27, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) subpoenaed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for three documents. The deadline for Sessions to produce those documents is tomorrow.

In his letter notifying Sessions of the subpoena, Goodlatte wrote:

Given the [Justice] Department’s ongoing delays and/or refusal to produce these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue the enclosed subpoena to compel their production.

The Subpoena states that on October 4, 2018, at 12:00 p.m., Sessions is “hereby commanded to be and appear before the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives” to produce three documents “in un-redacted form”:

(1) The McCabe Memos: “All documents and communications” written by former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe “to memorialize discussions, meetings, or correspondence he had with senior government officials, including the President of the United States.

The McCabe Memos include:

  • Real-time debriefs from former FBI Director James Comey after his meetings with Trump.
  • A memo on the May 16, 2017 meeting where Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein allegedly suggested he would wear a wire to secretly tape President Trump, which would then be used to enlist Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. McCabe and former FBI counsel Lisa Page were among several people in the room. (Fox News)

Note: Michael Bromwich, who is now an attorney representing Christine Blasey Ford, Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, was Andrew McCabe’s attorney.

(2) The Woods File: includes (a) the application for a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) order authorizing surveillance on Carter Page; and (b) “any document concerning or relating to any attempt to verify the accuracy of any alleged facts stated in the FISA applications for Mr. Page.”

Carter Page is a petroleum industry consultant and a former foreign-policy adviser to Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. He has been a focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into alleged links between Trump and Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

(3) Russian interference: “All documents and communications shared with the Gang of Eight in May 2018 related to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.”

On May 24, 2018, FBI and Justice Department officials briefed the bipartisan group of lawmakers known as the “Gang of 8” on classified documents related to Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia investigation. The “Gang of 8” are:

  1. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
  2. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Majority Leader.
  3. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
  4. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader.
  5. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Speaker.
  6. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.
  7. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Minority Leader.
  8. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Vice Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The Left go berserk over media-manufactured 'separation of families' crisis: Threats against Barron Trump & Rep. Mast; Antifa spreads names of ICE agents

In the latest manufactured crisis by the Left, we are inundated by the media with denunciations of President Trump’s evil “policy of separation of families”.
The Catholic Church’s clergy also jumped into the fray, ignoring the Left’s sacrosanct “separation of church and state” dictum.

As an example, the morbidly obese Bishop Patrick McGrath of San Jose, CA, calls the separation of detained minor children from their illegal-alien parents “un-American, un-Christian and inhumane,” “mean-spirited and betrays our nation’s tradition of welcome to migrants and refugees.”
What the media lackeys and politicized clergy won’t tell you is this:
There is no Trump “policy” of separating families.
By law, people caught illegally crossing our borders must be incarcerated. Some of those illegal border crossers are adults with children. What the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision which the Obama administration had refused to enforce. Flores vs. Reno stipulates that unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.” When the adults are incarcerated, our government must house, feed, clothe and take care of their children — at a cost to taxpayers of more than $1 billion a year. The alternative is to jail the children with the adults.
In reality, the vast majority of illegal-entry children in detention came across the border by themselves.
As Attorney General Jeff Sessions explains in an op-ed in USA Today on June 19, 2018:

Some years ago, it was decided that law enforcement might arrest adults who crossed the border illegally by themselves, but anyone who brought a child with them would not be prosecuted, a form of immunity.
Word got out about this loophole with predictable results. The number of aliens illegally crossing with children between our ports of entry went from 14,000 to 75,000 — a fivefold increase — in just the past four years.
These trends undermine the integrity of our system. That’s why the policy that is causing them must end, too.
Ending this blanket immunity means prosecuting adults for illegal entry whether they have children with them or not. That is what we are doing at the Department of Justice.
But we will not put the children in jail. Instead, the children must be cared for by the Department of Health and Human Services, as the law requires.

And these children are well cared for. In fact, they get better care than a lot of American kids do. They are provided plenty of food, education in their language, health and dental care, and transported to their destination city — all at taxpayer expense.

In total, HHS is spending more than one billion taxpayer dollars a year providing quality care.
Separations are temporary and rare. The vast majority of children in custody came to this country by themselves.
… If people have a genuine asylum claim, they can come to a port of entry, make their claim legally, and remain with their children while their case is processed.
We do not want to separate parents from their children. What we want is a safe, lawful system of immigration that would end this question altogether. We want to build a wall to prevent illegal entry. Congress could make that happen quickly — and they should.

The media are calling the detention centers “concentration camps”. But The Daily Caller points out that “Photos of border detention facilities from the Obama-era, taken during 2014, look nearly identical to the ones taken during the Trump era. You never see them, however.”
Whipped into a frenzy by the fake-news media and goaded on by deceptive Catholic clergy like Bishop McGrath, the Left are becoming unhinged before our very eyes.
Peter Fonda

(1) Has-Been Actor Peter Fonda

In an all-caps tweet today, actor Henry Fonda, 72, calls President Trump a “giant asshole” and says 12-year-old Barron Trump should be be ripped from his mother Melania’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles:

“WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO.”

Peter Fonda tweet threatening Barron Trump
The Daily Caller reports that First Lady Melania has notified the Secret Service about Peter Fonda’s threats against her son.
Fonda’s terrorist threat is only the latest in a series of Twitter threats against White House officials, particularly females and children:

  • In a tweet yesterday, calling Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen a “gash” — a slang word for female genitalia — Fonda calls for the public caging and rape of Nielsen: “Kristjen Nielsen is a lying gash that should be put in a cage and poked at by passersby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed for posterity.”
  • In another tweet, Fonda calls Press Secretary Sarah Sanders a “gash” — a term that Fonda admits is “much worse than cunt” — and urges that Sanders’ three children be kidnapped and locked in a basement: “SS (Sarah Sanders) is a lying gash, too. “And ‘gash’ is much worse than cunt. Maybe we should take her children away and deport her to Arkansas, and giving her children to Stephen Goebbels Miller for safe keeping.”

Sony Pictures is releasing a movie, Boundaries, starring Fonda in a matter of days. Be sure you boycott the movie and any other movie or TV Peter Fonda is in.

(2) Has-Been Actor Tom Arnold

For his part, actor Tom Arnold also tweeted a threat against Barron, calling for protesting the boy’s school so as to make Barron “uncomfortable”:

(3) Antifa

Meanwhile, the terrorist group Antifa is going after ICE (Immigration and Custom Enforcement) agents.
Yesterday, Sam Lavigne of the Twitter account “nebraska antifa” sent out a tweet to its followers which links to a list ICE officers, with their names, titles and locations. (InfoWars)

(4) Florida man Laurence Key

Laurence Key of Stuart, Florida was arrested Tuesday after threatening to kill Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) and his three young children over the Trump administration’s immigration policy. Key reportedly phoned Rep. Mast’s D.C. office on Monday, warning the intern who received the call that he was going to “find the congressman’s kids and kill them,” say court documents filed in U.S. District Court. (Breitbart)
The Left’s terrorist tactics worked.
This afternoon, admitting that the media’s images of detained children made it difficult, President Trump caved and signed an executive order ending his administration’s “separating” illegal migrant children from their parents at the border, by expanding the time that minors could be held in custody, which would allow families to remain together. (New York Post)

Peter Fonda should be arrested.

It is a federal crime, USC 18.41 Sec. 875(c), punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication containing a threat to injure the person of another, via the Internet and e-mail (as well as the telephone, beepers, and other means of communication).

President Trump forms special strike force against Chicago's homicide epidemic

Throughout the Obama years, nearly every week FOTM‘s DCG has been chronicling the city of Chicago’s doleful shooting homicide statistics, the most recent being today’s post, “This is Chiraq: More than 100 shot over Fourth of July Weekend“.
Those statistics clearly demonstrate that the gun-control city’s epidemic of murder and shooting is beyond the control of both the city government, headed by useless mayor Rahm Emanuel, as well as the Illinois state government.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel


During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump had indicated that if elected, he would do something to help America’s black inner cities. Singling out Chicago, Trump promised he would send in “the Feds” to help reduce the city’s murder rate.
Now, the federal government finally is doing something to help Chicago, no thanks to Barack Obama, who began his political career and rise in Chicago — the birthplace of his wife, Michelle.
Fox News reports that on June 30, 2017, decrying the crime epidemic on Chicago streets, President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the federal government is sending about 20 additional U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents the city.
Trump tweeted that “Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1714 shootings in Chicago this year!”

For his part, AG Sessions told “Fox & Friends” that Chicago police are “demoralized” and city politics are not working, and that the Department of Justice is assisting: “We’ll have an impact in reducing shootings in Chicago. Murders are way, way too high.”
Sessions subsequently released a written statement saying “The Trump Administration will not let the bloodshed go on; we cannot accept these levels of violence,” and that the Trump administration has created the Chicago Gun Strike Force and is sending “20 more permanent ATF agents to Chicago, reallocating federal prosecutors and prioritizing prosecutions to reduce gun violence” and working with law enforcement partners.
The new set of ATF agents will work with counterparts from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police on the new Chicago Gun Strike Force to solve shootings and arrest gun traffickers, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Included in the strike force are prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office and Cook County state’s attorney’s office, who will decided whether suspects in gun crime should be charged in state or federal court. Anthony Riccio, head of the Chicago Police Department’s organized crime unit, said: “The goal is the prosecute as many of these guys as possible federally where they will serve longer prison terms.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Fight against 'evil' pedophiles a top priority

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 19:46:57 +0000

eowyn2

Yesterday, June 6, 2017, in Atlanta, GA, in a speech at the National Law Enforcement Conference on Human Exploitation before about 1,500 law enforcement officials and victim support counselors who specialize in child sex abuse cases, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a clear message that the Trump administration is going after pedophiles.

Calling pedophiles “evil,” “twisted,” “wicked,” “horrific” and “vile,” Sessions declares child abuse and child exploitation to be his top priority as Attorney General. Expressing empathy with and thanking the conference attendees for their very difficult and “dark” work, Sessions pledges to them the full support of the Justice Department.

Though delivered in his measured southern drawl, Sessions’ speech was impassioned and deserves your attention.

Below is a video of his speech (h/t FOTM‘s Will Shanley and stlonginus), followed by my transcription.

Beginning at the 0:20 mark, Attorney General Sessions said:

“I know from my experience working these cases in Alabama that you are stopping people [who], if not stopped, will continue to abuse more and more people. A lot of people don’t like incarceration. But the reality is, and I wish it weren’t so, that incarceration seems to be in many cases the only thing that would protect children….

Child abuse and child exploitation cases are a high priority for me as United States Attorney and they will be a high priority now for me as Attorney General. And I want you to know that we can, we are now, and we will continue. You will make a difference in this fight and protect children that need to be protected and deserve our protection in every single way….”

Note: Before he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996, Jeff Sessions, 70, was Attorney General of Alabama (1994-1996) and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama (1981-1993).

“What we are charged [by President Trump] with doing is reducing crime in America, and crimes against children are some of the worst in our country…. So our efforts to improve public safety will make the fight against child exploitation and human trafficking a top priority of ours.

Then, Sessions confided that he’s “worried about the trends we’re seeing today” which he does not believe “is a blip”. He cites the following statistics for 2016 — an 11% increase in murder and 59,000 deaths from drug overdose — and attributes the child abuse and child exploitation to the breakdown of the family.

Sessions continues:

“It’s hard for any of us to believe that child exploitation even happens but it does. And it takes dedicated people to investigate and prosecute these despicable crimes. It demands courage and compassion, resilience and resourcefulness and determination…. But if you confront evil as terrible as you confront everyday, you stand up to predators who think nothing of destroying children just to make a buck or to fulfill their own twisted fantasies. You see wickedness that no one should ever have to see, and suffering and cruelty that few can imagine. Your work takes you to dark places, both virtual places and real ones, places no one ever should have to visit. You do the gut-wrenching work of collecting and reviewing evidence to these crimes. You interview victims, prepare them to tell their stories as witnesses, and support them as they recover, hoping, praying that the abuse they’ve suffered does not destroy their future. It’s tempting to become discouraged in the midst of all of this, but you persevere, and for good reason. Few others can say that their work matters so much. You are rescuing and protecting innocent children, and bringing to justice people who commit horrific acts. For this, you have my admiration and my gratitude and the appreciation of all American people. You also have my commitment, as long as I’m Attorney General, the Department of Justice will continue to strongly support your work. We will be behind you.

Sessions then enumerates the achievements of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, whose investigations have led to the arrest of more than 73,000 people suspected of sexually exploiting children, including 8,800 just last year. But he notes that:

“Even amid these heroic efforts, we also know the challenge we face today is perhaps greater than ever before…. The landscape has changed profoundly…. By all accounts, the scourge of child exploitation is getting worse. We know that just here in the United States, many thousands of criminals are involved in exploitation, millions of vile images and videos now circulate the globe, just a few clicks away from anyone who wants to call them up. Investigations and prosecutions of child exploitation are increasing, while the victims are getting even younger. We also know that while the tech revolution has brought us many benefits, it’s also made your work even more challenging. It’s given pedophiles new ways to find and exploit children. Because of technology, no place is safe for our kids, not even our homes or our schools.

By new technology, Sessions means smart phones and tablets that make children vulnerable to predators; cheap cameras and iPhones to make child porn; darknet, chat sites, social networking sites, and mobile apps on encrypted devices — all of which enable predators to target and groom our children for abuse, to find and encourage other predators, and to evade law enforcement.

That is why it is important for law enforcement to acquire new training and new technology, and to coordinate in federal-state-local teamwork to better combat today’s predators. Sessions then reminds us that we, the American public, also have an important role to play in combating child sex abuse and trafficking — which I take as his encouragement and approval of the investigations that countless Internet citizen journalists have undertaken concerning Pizzagate:

“The importance of teamwork also extends to the broader public. We need to help our fellow citizens know what to watch for, and to encourage them to tell us when they see something. We saw the value of public involvement last month in Kansas. A man in Wichita was sentenced to 16 years in prison for distributing child pornography. This man came to the attention of the investigators when they received four separate cyber tipline reports from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In this case as so many others, the vigilance of our fellow citizens made the crucial difference…. It takes all of us — investigators, prosecutors, and victims support specialists, teachers, parents, concerned citizens. Standing together, we will send a message to the predators and the pimps, the child abusers and extortionists and traffickers: ‘You will not harm our kids, and we will never rest until we find you and bring you to justice for your appalling acts.’

Gracious as ever, Attorney General Sessions ends his speech by thanking those in the audience:

“Let me close by thanking all of you, once again, for choosing this difficult work. You see the darkest side of humanity almost every day, but doesn’t stop you. Each of you is a bright light of hope and justice for our children. Your light shines in the darkness, and the darkness will not overcome it. Keep up the great work, have a productive week here together, and thank you for having me here today. God bless you all.”

Contrast Attorney General Jeff Sessions to his two predecessors:

  1. In her pro forma speech at the National Law Enforcement Conference on Child Exploitation in April 2016, Obama’s attorney general Loretta Lynch did not use words like “evil,” “twisted,” “wicked,” “horrific” and “vile” to refer to pedophiles.
  2. Lynch’s predecessor, Obama’s first attorney general Eric Holder, was worse. In 2014 and 2015, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation had Holder on its “Dirty Dozen” list of contributors to sexual exploitation in the United States — for not enforcing federal obscenity laws, which had been enforced in previous administrations and upheld by U.S courts, prohibiting the distribution of obscene pornography in hotels, retail stores, by cable, and on the Internet. (Washington Free Beacon)

While searching for news on Attorney General Sessions’ speech at Atlanta, I found a skimpy report by Fox5 Atlanta which, curiously, has next to nothing on what Sessions said, but saw it fitting to archly insert these two sentences in its 6-sentences report:

“Sessions’ visit comes as some democrats in Washington are raising questions about his contacts with a Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign.”

If I lived in Atlanta, I would make sure not to rely on Fox5 as a source of news.

AG Jeff Sessions knows Joe Biden is a pedophile

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 11:30:33 +0000

eowyn2

The American Heritage of the English Dictionary defines “pedophile” as:

“a person who is sexually attracted to prepubescent children.”

Nearly 8 months ago, I posted a C-SPAN video of Obama’s VP Joe Biden pawing and groping girls in plain sight. See “Joe Biden tells 13-year-old girl he’s ‘horny’?”.

Now, ron johnson of YouTube has compiled footages of Biden feeling up young girls into a single video. The most fascinating part of the video is then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, now U.S. Attorney General, slapping Biden’s hand away from a young girl, which suggests Sessions knows Biden is a “pizza” (young girls) pedophile.

Here’s the video:

In the event the video is taken down by YouTube, I had a GIF made of Sessions slapping Biden’s hand away:
