Those mythical moderate muslims

The only solution is Islam reforming itself? Good luck with that. It's kind of difficult to reform Islam into a peaceful religion when its messenger was an intolerant, Jew-murdering, pillaging, paedophile, warlord. Worse, to say that Muhammad was, in any way, immoral is to court death.

Islam, by design, is the last and most perfect religion. It is not malleable. For a Muslim to even suggest that it be changed is to declare oneself a heretic. How do you bring about a moderate Islam when the act of reforming it is a capital punishment? This largely explains why Islam hasn't firmly softened in almost 1400 years. If anything it has gotten more close to its loathsome roots in the recent past. This evidence is most stark in Egypt, Lebanon, Iran and Afghanistan.

The least violent solution for the West is to simply keep Muslims out and to speak the harsh and ugly truth about the evil cult of death.

At the very heart of Islam:
Saudi Arabia has sentenced an atheist to death for uploading a video in which he renounced Islam and the Prophet Mohammed. The man has been identified locally as Ahmad Al Shamri who is in his 20s and from the town of Hafar al-Batin.
Saudi authorities first picked him up in 2014 after he uploaded the video showing men and women dancing which led to him being charged with atheism and blasphemy.
And in a shockingly shocking development:
Shockingly, fellow countrymen appeared to support the punishment handed down by the country's officials when reacting to the sanction online. According to The Independent, one said: 'If you're a lowkey atheist that's fine. 'But once you talk in public and criticize God or religion, then you shall be punished.'
Another poster said: 'I wish there could be live streaming when you cut his head off.'
Can you feel the peace?

From WND, so who knows if it's true?
While Hillary Clinton loyal aide Huma Abedin was reportedly sidelined in the final stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign as a result of Abedin’s husband’s child-porn scandal, she was potentially an even greater liability than known. It turns out Anthony Weiner wasn’t the only family member under investigation. 
In fact, the U.S. Justice Department has been actively prosecuting two other Abedin family members – for conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud – and she along with the State Department, where she previously worked for Clinton, are mentioned in the federal case, court records show. 
Other documents reveal the same allegedly crooked kin solicited Abedin for help at State in a deal that netted more than $1.2 million in federal grants. These undesirable family connections, revealed here for the first time, raise fresh questions about influence peddling at the State Department under Clinton, who is now reportedly working with Abedin on a political comeback. 
Abedin’s relatives were major donors to the Clinton Foundation. And Abedin drew a salary from the Clinton Foundation, while at the same time working for the government. 
Records show that her first cousin, Omar Amanat, is under federal indictment for cheating investors in Kit Digital Inc. of millions of dollars between 2009 and 2012, forcing the tech start-up to go bankrupt in 2013. 
He has been placed under house arrest as he awaits trial, which is scheduled for Oct. 2. Sperry is a former Hoover Institution media fellow and author of “Infiltration” and “Muslim Mafia.” 
Another Abedin cousin, Irfan Amanat, is under indictment in the same case. He was arrested in December after returning to the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates. Prosecutors say Omar Amanat illegally diverted millions of dollars from investments in Kit Digital “for his personal use,” including “luxury properties in Manhattan.” 
He “never disclosed these misappropriations to investors,” who were misled about the value of the company by false balance sheets. He has pleaded not guilty.

Now, THIS is WINNING! Border Patrol Prez Threatens to Ditch Trump over Wall: “Why Vote for People If They Don’t Keep Promises?”

Stuart Varney: I take it if the wall is not built you’ll walk away from the Republican Party? 
Brandon Judd: We’ll be very upset. You gotta remember that when I gave the endorsement to President Trump that endorsement was mentioned in every single campaign speech that he gave. And his meteoric rise was based on his immigration stances and we want to see promises kept. Why continue to vote for people if they don’t keep the promises that they made on the campaign trail?
Donald Trump appears to be a BIG, FAT LOSER.

‘Huge’ blasts near Damascus airport blamed on Israeli strike?

From the Times of Israel:
“The blast was huge and could be heard in Damascus,” he said. Activist-operated Diary of a Mortar, which reports from Damascus, said the explosion near the airport road was followed by flames rising above the area. 
A pro-government site Damascus Now said the explosion was near the city’s Seventh Bridge, which leads to the airport road. 
Some opposition-linked media reports blamed the attack on Israel, saying an initial missile strike against a weapons warehouse belonging to government forces caused fuel silos to explode, leading to a cascade of explosions that damaged a few nearby homes. 
Explosions were also reported in the Al-Mazzeh area of the Syrian capital, apparently at the Mazzeh Air Base, a military airstrip used by regime forces. 
There was no immediate confirmation of the cause for the explosions from either Syrian or Israeli sources.

Republican Prove, Once Again, That Their #1 Initiative is Open Borders, Trump Proves He's a Big Fat Failure

If this is winning, 
I'm sick of winning!

From Ace of Spades:
Rather Than Dare the Democrats to Shut Down the Government Over Spending on a Program They Didn't Want, Republicans Cave and Propose Budget with No Funding for Border Wall 
So here's how this works: Republicans can't shut down the government to stop Obamafunding because if you shut down the government you'll be blamed and lose seats. So Republicans must cave. 
Democrats can shut down the government with no negative consequences to them, and therefore Republicans must cave when Democrats are going to shut down the government. 
Rush Limbaugh was complaining about this dynamic yesterday, saying he had hoped Trump would be the guy who would stand up to the dominant paradigm and say the old rules no longer apply. But apparently not. 
This isn't just Trump's fault -- a lot of Republicans are against the wall and don't want to have to take a vote on it either way. 
So it's once again Failure Theater -- darn it, those Democrats are stopping us from doing the things we claim we want to do but in fact would always refuse to do!  
But it's also a reflection of Trump's weakness.
He's weak. He's very, very weak.

He's a flaccid phallus of a President. He's a total loser.

CNN Panelist Phil Mudd Calls Trump's Cabinet "A Bunch Of Dead White Dudes"

Enough of the racism. Now, we have CNN openly wishing for the death of Trump's cabinet.

Frankly, I don't care if that's what he specifially meant. He is referring to major American political figures as dead men walking.

The rhetoric is dangerous in an of itself, whatever the intended meaning.

Would you want to be referred to as a dead man on international TV?

Phil Mudd should be arrested.

From the Daily Caller:
Phil Mudd: “She’s gotta come up with a better answer. The answer can’t be he champions women’s rights when he makes fun of a woman’s face, and makes fun of her menstrual cycle, and he’s got a bunch of dead white dudes in the cabinet.”

Awan Brothers Hired By Congressman Andre Carson?

Reddit: The AWAN brothers - Compromised at least 80 Congressional computers and got paid $5M to do it

These over-compensated (Pakistani Intelligence) ISI IT specialists had access to multiple National Security agencies with top secret access - courtesy of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
EXCLUSIVE: House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs Committee Members Compromised By Rogue IT Staff

Keep in mind, US Navy SEAL, William 'Ryan' Owens, 36 lost his life, and three other Americans were wounded in the Yemen raid because of intel breach which could have been a result of the "Awan Brothers" , the overpaid "IT" specialists had top security access to intel from 31 democrats particularly access to intel from The Select Intelligence Committee of The House, Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs

FoxNews: Plot thickens in probe of House IT contractors

In his recent updates on the Awan Brothers investigation, journalist, George Webb suggests there was only one Awan brother who was photographed with WH personnel - suggesting the other 'named/employed IT' 'Awan brothers' & their 'wives' who are listed on the WH payroll may be ghost employees.


Varney and Company:

Stuart Varney : This is a truly developing story of great import! The “Daily Caller” reports, Three Congressional IT, ‘information technology’ workers have been fired. Liz, who were they?

Elizabeth MacDonald: Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan. They worked for Homeland Security, Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees on computer systems. So, they were tech support guys and they were – or allegedly, they broke into these members computers – twenty plus members computers , here, of Congress, of The House. And the fear is they also stole equipment, stole data, possibly stole e-mails. That’s the fear.

Stuart Varney: So, three people – FIRED - and there’s a criminal probe I think looking into others?

Elizabeth MacDonald: There were five, a total of five in this group. I think there are three or four brothers and I think one woman.

Stuart Varney: And then they allegedly accessed the information of Congress people who were on three important committees.
House Intelligence
Homeland Security
and Foreign Affairs
This is dramatic, indeed.

Elizabeth MacDonald: Twenty-plus members of Congress

Stuart Varney: This is a gigantic story and it’s been around for a while. Not reported. The ‘Daily Caller’ got that story and now it’s been, it’s out there publicly.

Elizabeth MacDonald: Yeah, and I’ll tell you, you know, one of the Congressmen at play here, just reporters here being journalists. Remember Congressman Andre Carson was at a microphone, at a hot mic and Nancy Pelosi said, ‘tell them you’re a muslim’. And he had hired these workers. Now, that’s not to say

Stuart Varney: Woah, woah, woah, wait! Andre Carson is a Congressman, and a democrat. He’s a Congressman. The other night, on a podium with Nancy Pelosi...Nancy Pelosi said ‘tell them you’re a muslim.’‘tell them you’re a muslim.’ and he did. And this man, this Mr. Carson, he hired these three people to work in IT and they’ve now been fired and allegedly, they accessed the personal information of Congress people on three key intelligence committees.

Elizabeth MacDonald: Yes, Andre Carson is one of the 20-plus Congressmen. Again, we don’t know the religious background of these workers who were fired. So, just to be clear. This is what is at stake and this is an under-reported story about the security, our national security and how Congress, members of Congress protect that information because they cover terrorism, right? They cover terrorism strategies and anti-terrorism strategies on these committees.

Stuart Varney: Am I right in saying that one of the people fired had a criminal record?

Elizabeth MacDonald: Yes, he had ...he’s a felon ...he has a criminal record, yeah, also filed for bankruptcy as well.

Stuart Varney: And these three – they’re brothers, I think, am I right?

Elizabeth MacDonald: The three are brothers, yes. Maybe four brothers.

Stuart Varney: All of them make over $100k a year

Elizabeth MacDonald: $160k a year, three times the average of IT House worker

Stuart Varney: And there were crimin, one is a criminal felon introduced into the IT department of Congress

Elizabeth MacDonald: Correct. That’s correct. Yep.

Stuart Varney Well, that’s one of the bigger news stories of the day in my personal opinion.

Trump Discovers Outright Fraud, Obama Spent $300 Million Annually On ‘Fake Soldiers’ In Afghanistan

From the Conservative Tribune:
Millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars were being foolishly wasted paying for the salaries of non-existent “ghost” soldiers and policemen in Afghanistan under the Obama administration, but no more. 
According to the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, John Sopko, who recently sat down for an interview with Sharyl Attkinson of Full Measure, the ongoing problem may have been worse than anyone realized, but was being addressed by President Donald Trump’s Pentagon. 
“We’ve been raising this concern about ghosts going back a number of years,” Sopko said. 
“Actually I want to say we heard about it from (Afghan President) Ashraf Ghani years ago, before he became president, he warned me about ‘ghosts,’ so we started looking three years ago.”

Cops Thwart ISIS Death Plot Against Toronto Sun Columnist Tarek Fatah

From the Calgary Sun:
Toronto Sun columnist Tarek Fatah was on an ISIS hit list because of “contentious issues related to Islam”, the Times of India reports. 
Cops in India say two terror suspects were arrested last week before they could get guns from an ISIS mole in Mumbai and make their sinister plot a reality. 
The duo were also targeting a Mumbai police officer. Fatah — known to Sun readers for his strong views on the Islamic world — earned a spot on the kill list after the would-be killers watched his YouTube videos and concluded his views on Islam were “highly objectionable”, police said. 
Sources told the Times the hitmen — reported in the press as Ehtesham and Faizan — were supposed to get guns elsewhere but when that fell through they turned to their Mumbai contact.

GOP Lawmakers Laughed Out Loud About Prospect of Building Trump Border Wall

I don't know why, but I can't help thinking of Ceaucescu.

Laura Ingraham: One thing I know for sure, Sean, is that we have way too many people on Capitol Hill who are not on the president’s side of this. I’m talking Republicans. So I have no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump wants this wall to be built. Congress has to appropriate the money. I heard over two months ago that GOP leadership, the most senior senators on Capitol Hill, and I heard it from someone who was in the room with them, they were laughing at an idea a wall would ever get built. Out loud laughing. They were recently telling that source of mine, “Don’t worry, it’s not going to happen.”

China, Norkland and the LONG GAME ..I thought they were smarter

Xi, yesterday urged CALM on all parties on the Korean Peninsula.
A cheap way to look good, although I am sure they mean it. I am also sure they understand the effect of this call.
From here, it looks as if the gears of this machine are well underway.
They test? BOOM. No way we can do nothing, now. If we do something EFFECTIVE, they unleash 100% war on the peninsula and may attack our bases in the western pacific, and in Japan.
But none of this has to be this way.
If China sees itself as a self confident growing power ( which is what I would see if I were in China), then the REAL GAIN, is to STRANGLE Kim and his buds and allow the South, a grade A economic powerhouse, to absorb the entire North right to the Yalu and then China has an economically FULL SIZE trading partner they can ship back and forth with across bridges, and begin to influence AWAY from a ‘distant, declining, self absorbed USA, whose time has come and is going.’ Australia, whose geographical position and observation of economies since the 80’s, and politics since the 2008 election, is a prime example of this. Australia openly discusses, spurred by academic papers, whether their future is with China and Asia or with English Speaking Democracies (it’s the latter, dudes, you’re kidding yourselves in a world class delusion, otherwise).
North Korea at MOST is at times nothing more than a convenient TACTICAL annoyance for the USA, and China must realize if it ever becomes more, the USA will ensure by all means, including use of the most decisive means available to humans, they end as sand and glass. So sorry, this really should be clear in Beijing.
Therefore by strangling off the Kim concentration camp with a 100% embargo, in concert with  a 100% naval blockade by the USA, Australia and Japan, and causing EITHER the fall of Kim by slow death, or the aggressive strike by Kim firing the firing shot, and thereby ‘allowing’ the entry of China, Russia, the USA, and South Korea, China has by far the most to gain IN THE LONG GAME.
The worst case over the next 50-100 years is that economic, but not political benefits ensue as the entire economy of Asia is lifted.
I mean, China believes in ‘free trade’, right?
So they can benefit, RIGHT?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis, among other Trump administration officials, invited all 100 US Senators to a special briefing on North Korea. The meeting was scheduled to occur at 3:00 p.m. ET April 24. 
The invitation comes on the heals of increasingly hard line rhetoric from UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has not ruled out a direct air strike on Pyongyang should the Communist dictatorship detonate another nuclear device.

The allied forces during WW2 have to shoulder blame for not acting sooner

Benjamin Netanyahu made a crucial point about why the Holocaust happened:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday slammed western powers during his speech on Holocaust Remembrance Day, saying that Allied powers knew of the atrocities happening to Jews in death camps and had they have acted on that knowledge they would have saved the lives of four million Jews and millions of others.

The prime minister cited newly released documents from the UN that show the Allied forces were aware of the extent of the Holocaust in 1942 – two and half years earlier than previously assumed.

It was a “chilling revelation,” Netanyahu said.

“If the powers in 1942 had acted against the death camps — and all that was needed was repeated bombing of the camps — had they acted then, they could have saved four million Jews and millions of other people,” he said at the official state Yom HaShoah ceremony at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

“When terrible crimes were being committed against the Jews, when our brothers and sisters were being sent to the furnaces,” he said, “the powers knew and did not act.”

According to Netanyahu, the Holocaust was the result of three elements coming together: a deep hatred of the Jews, global apathy to the horrors that occurred, and “the terrible weakness of our people in the Diaspora.”

Anti-Semitism had not disappeared, and neither was it likely to in the foreseeable future, he said. It was made worse by Iran and the Islamic State, he added. This was to be the only mention of the Islamic republic in his speech, a marked departure from previous years in which he would single out Iran several times.

Global indifference was still alive today too, Netanyahu said.
Yes, and that indifference is exactly what's turned several areas in Europe into hellholes, as self-hating European politicians turn against their own populations. It's considerable damage that's going to take ages to repair, and until then, the chances of another world war are very possible.

Here's more about Netanyahu giving a stern warning Islamofascist countries like Iran.

Emmanuel Macron attacked Jewish schools

With the French election still a subject, any Jews in France who overlook this disturbing news from several months ago, which did cause some anger, will be making a big mistake:
French presidential hopeful and former Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron sparked an uproar in the French Jewish community, following the publication of an interview earlier this month of an interview touching upon religious schools in France.

[...] Speaking with Marianne earlier this month, Macron warned of the influence of religion in French schools generally and decrying Jewish schools for emphasizing the Torah.

“It is very important to maintain neutrality in the public sector,” Macron said. “Religion cannot be present in school. But I hear few people becoming concerned by the consequences of this phenomenon, [with] more and more children being sent to religious schools which teach them to hate the Republic and teach mainly in Arabic, or,” Macron added, “in other places [Jewish schools] teach the Torah more than general studies.”
That kind of talk could easily suggest Jewish schools are no different than Muslim schools. Far from it, and most Jewish schools in France have some of the best students in various other subjects too. That Macron would make such a superficial claim only does more damage, and puts his sincerity further in doubt. Here's some of the French language interviews on Marianne and La Croix.

Since we're on the subject, the UK Telegraph says Macron would also be bad for Brexit:
Barring an unforeseen electoral earthquake, the centrist Emmanuel Macron now looks set fair to become the next president of France in two weeks’ time.

As the leader of one of the EU’s two most powerful nations, Mr Macron will have a key role in formulating the European Union’s attitude to Brexit when talks get underway after the UK’s General election on June 8.

Theresa May has been clear that she does not want the EU or the euro to unravel - a near-certainty were Marine Le Pen to win the Elysee Palace - but while a Macron presidency brings stability, the 39-year-old former banker has promised to drive a hard bargain with Britain.
Worse is the hard bargain he'll drive with his own country, since his positions on safety and security for the public are uncertain.

And, if it matters, what about his affair and marriage with a former teacher of his, Brigitte Trogneux, when he was 16 years old, at a time when he was still underage and she was in her late 30s? His defense for this was:
“Nobody would call it unusual if the age difference was reversed,” he said. “People find it difficult to accept something that is sincere and unique.”
No, he's missing the point. In the USA, if an older teacher has an affair with a student who's under 18, it's considered illegal, and she would've been arrested and charged for violating statutory laws. The same goes for if a male teacher did the same with an underage girl. So what's his point? What he's done is an embarrassment, even if it's nothing compared to his fishy policies on security for the country and combating terrorism, which he doesn't seem to have a clue what to do about.

Silicon Valley is Full Of Shit

From Penelope Trunk:
Silicon Valley is full of shit.
The feminist narrative of Silicon Valley makes me want to stab my eyes out. Sheryl Sandberg spent years convincing women that they should idolize her and try to emulate her by “leaning in.” She has since backtracked on her Lean In diatribe. And she acknowledges that working full time in Silicon Valley while you have kids is only marginally possible.
Which is why most big companies in the area pay for women to freeze their eggs. Which is of course less of a perk and more of an insult to women since we really have no idea if freezing eggs works, and women are giving up their most fertile years.
And you already know that Silicon Valley is all white and Asian. But did you know that people in Silicon Valley don’t care? A recent survey shows that 80% of workers in Silicon Valley think their company is diverse. Yet in reality only 4% of workers are black or Latino.

The Police Have a Duty To Not Be Pension-Swilling Union Orcs

From Five Feet of Fury:
I’ve read posts from patriots excusing police: ‘They were just following orders to stand down.’ That argument went out of fashion at the Nuremberg trials. I’m a former member of the Canadian Forces who went to jail 5 times for trying to walk down a Caledonia road with a Canadian flag. 
Our Ontario Provincial Police stood by and allowed violent native thugs to terrorize an entire town for years, and I gave up my career in real estate sales to become a full time ‘rule of law activist’ to stop it. People were terrorized and beaten in their homes. Women were raped. Hydro station firebombed. Bridge burned. Rights violated. Because police and government decided appeasing violent people was better than enforcing the law. 
Eventually, two books — including a bestseller — were written about Caledonia and our struggle to use Dr. King’s methods to restore the rule of law against the worst efforts of police, government, media, native thugs and anarchists/communists. Different names, but essentially the same gang of subversives the free-speechers in Berkeley are up against. 
Well-meaning people said the same disgusting thing to us: “They’re just following orders, Mark.” As someone trained in the military, soldiers and — I would argue — police have a duty to disobey illegal orders. 
Yes, even if it costs them their jobs, even if it costs them their pensions."

Genital mutilation victims break silence on 'demonic' practice

Clit-Hacking, It's Not Just For Muslims ...
Oh, Who Am I Kidding? Yeah It Is

From the Detroit Free Press:
It was the summer of 1990. Mariya Taher was 7 years old, vacationing in India with her family, when one day her mother took her to a run-down apartment building without explaining why. 
She remembers climbing some stairs, opening a door and seeing older women in a room. There was laughter, and the place seemed cheerful. But then came the betrayal. 
The child ended up on the floor. Her dress was lifted up. 
“I remember something sharp down there and then I remember crying,” Taher, now 34, recalls. “I remember my mom comforting me afterward and holding me in her lap.” 
A decade later, Taher would better understand what happened to her on that summer day in Mumbai. She had survived the taboo ritual of female genital mutilation, a decades-old religious tradition that millions of women worldwide continue to be subjected to, including a half million in the U.S., where a historic criminal case involving the practice is unfolding in Detroit. 
After years of suffering in silence, fearful of getting shunned by their families and communities if they denounced genital mutilation, they are speaking out and demanding change. They want the cutters punished, along with religious leaders and parents who continue to support a practice that is illegal in the U.S. and has been condemned by the World Health Organization. 
The Michigan case, they say, has emboldened them, particularly because the doctor's defense revolves around an all-too-familiar argument made by the Bohra community: that the mild, ritual "nick" or "shaving" isn't actual cutting. 
The victims disagree, they say, and they have the mental and physical scars to prove it. 
“It's taken me a long time to be as comfortable as I am," said Taher, who hopes that her Sahiyo campaign to end female genital mutilation will gain momentum from the Michigan case. 
"We can’t have this happening ... Whether it’s a tradition, for religious reasons or for sex, I see all of it as controlling someone. This is a form of gender violence. It’s a form of child abuse. It’s oppression.”

Boys Punching Girls: Feminism's Big Win

From PJM:
Moldylocks. It's all over social media, the Antifa chick in the dreds getting clocked in the forehead by a "Nazi" (whatever that means) at the Tax Day rally in Berkeley. The usual sources are outraged. The other side is wryly amused. For many years now Hollywood has been giving us heroines who are as strong or stronger than men. They take a punch but never go down. They kick ass. 
Those of us who live in reality know that this is pure fantasy, but there is a generation of youngins' who think it's possible for a 5'4", 100 lb. girl to fight toe to toe with a 6-foot-tall man and walk away with a bruise or two while leaving the man on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Lara Croft and a million other plucky FBI agents and CIA super spies with big boobs and deadly aim have taught us this. 
Twitter is attacking the "alt-right" for hitting a girl. The puncher, Nathan Damigo, is the founder of a white nationalist group at California State, Stanislaus, called Identity Evropa. The alt-right is raising money to buy ice for his hand. 
Does anyone see the irony in the social justice warriors complaining that a guy hit a girl? 
A girl who wants equality with men showed up at a Trump rally wearing weighted gloves, tried to punch a guy in the throat, and got laid out with one punch. For as long as I can remember, the feminists have told us they're exactly the same, if not better than men. S 
o why are we supposed to be outraged that one of them got hit in the face by a man? Isn't that exactly what she wanted when she jumped into the fray and started swinging? 
These people confuse me. On one hand, Moldylocks wants to be considered an anarchist warrior, bragging that she would take "100 nazi scalps" on social media. And now she's whining to anyone who will listen that she's just a 94 lb. shrinking violet who landed in the hospital after getting her clock cleaned by a big bad boy. 
I can't muster any sympathy. I tried. Her GoFundMe page goes so far as to call her a "poor girl." Oh, give me a break! This girl knew exactly what she was doing joining Antifa at the Berkeley rally. She was there to fight "nazis." She said so.
I feel sorry for me. I feel intense sadness for the women out here who never wanted this kind of equality, who knew that it would lead to guys punching girls. We raise our sons not to hit women and then women show up and beg to be hit. How on earth do we fix this? These gals have lost their ever loving minds and now we all suffer the consequences. Forget getting a seat on the bus when you're eight months pregnant, those days are long gone. Now, thanks to the rabid females on the Left, we have to expect to get punched if a brawl breaks out. No one is coming to protect us or shield us from the fray. Thanks a heap, ladies.

Comey's Go-It-Alone Strategy on Hillary Emailgate Emerged Because He Lacked Trust in Loretta Lynch

From The Hill:
FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and senior officials at the Justice Department, believing they might provide Hillary Clinton with political cover over her email, according to a new report published Saturday by The New York Times. 
The Times described Comey’s “go-it-alone strategy” in the Clinton probe as emerging largely from his suspicions that Lynch and others at Justice might seek to subtly downplay the Clinton investigation. 
As an example, the Times reported that Lynch, during a meeting in September 2015, called on Comey to use the word “matter” instead of “investigation” when publicly discussing the case, three people who attended the meeting told the Times. 
Lynch reportedly reasoned that the word “investigation” would raise a number of other questions. 
Furthermore, she argued that the department should maintain its policy of not confirming investigations. 
After referring to the FBI the question of whether classified information had been improperly handled by Clinton through her use of a private server, a step toward a criminal investigation, 
Justice clarified that it was not a “criminal referral.” This also raised suspicions at the FBI, according to the Times. Clinton seized on the wording to say that what the FBI was conducting was “not a criminal investigation.” 
Lynch came under pressure to recuse herself from the investigation entirely after she had a discussion with former President Bill Clinton in June 2016 on he plane as it sat on the tarmac of Phoenix’s airport. 
Lynch did not recuse herself, but the situation did lead her to say she would accept what ever conclusions career prosecutors and the FBI reached.

Colorado Paper Refuses To Retract Letter Calling For Violence Against Frackers

From The Daily Caller:
A newspaper in Colorado has yet to retract a letter to the editor it published suggesting state residents would be “intelligent” to act violently against oil pipelines in their communities. 
The Boulder Daily Camera posted a letter to the editor April 19 that citizens have a moral obligation to destroy pipelines and eliminate oil jobs if they violate the sensibilities of Colorado residents. 
Editors altered the piece after publication, but left the writer’s basic thesis in place: violence may be the only way to prevent pipeline construction. 
“If the oil and gas industry puts fracking wells in our neighborhoods, threatening our lives and our children’s lives, then don’t we have a moral responsibility to blow up wells and eliminate fracking and workers?” 
Andrew O’Connor wrote in a letter to the paper’s editors. The letter was edited the following day to read “don’t we have a moral responsibility to take action to dissuade frackers from operating here?” 
The Camera’s editors did not include an apology to its edits. O’Connor’s piece is worthwhile, the editors noted, because it brings up philosophical ideas that are important to consider when discussing fracking. 
“This letter was edited to delete references that may have been construed to expressly advocate violence or property destruction,” the paper’s editorial board wrote. “The Camera does not condone or endorse violence or property destruction of any kind.”   
His letter still claims, “fracking equals murder” and says blowing up gas lines would be the “intelligent” move. O’Connor implies using violence against pipeline companies is a matter of self-defense.
