FBI Lawyer Lisa Page Fails to Comply With Congressional Subpoena. Here’s Why

Published

on

As the nation waited with baited breath to finally hear from Lisa Page, the FBI lawyer and lover of Peter Strzok, who was the recipient of Strzok’s text message pledges to prevent the Trump presidency somehow, Page decided to bail.

Town Hall reports that Page was expected to testify before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committee on Wednesday after being served with a subpoena, but she failed to show, claiming she wasn’t “given enough time” to prepare for the hearing.

“Through her actions and words, Lisa has made it abundantly clear that she will cooperate with this investigation. There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify. The [House Judiciary and Oversight] Committees’ bullying tactics here are unnecessary. We expect them to agree to another date so that Lisa can appear before the committees in the near future,” Page’s attorney, Amy Jeffrees said in a statement.

Jeffrees had warned ahead of the hearing that Page might not show up:

Page had been subpoenaed at her home by U.S. Marshalls after he lawyer rejected an electronic subpoena from Congress.

Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, who issued the subpoena, is not buying Page and her attorney’s statement.

“It does appear apparently Lisa Page has something to hide,” he told Fox News on Wednesday, adding she could be held in contempt of Congress as early as Friday.

As the Committee gears up for Peter Strzok’s testimony on Thursday, President Trump took the opportunity to slam Attorney General Jeff Sessions for Page’s failure to appear:

It’s time both these notorious texters answer for their actions.

OH MY GOD! Ilhan Omar Will Speak At Event With Man Who Praised the Killing of Jews

Is this real life?

John Salvatore

Published

on

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is being supported by members of her party in the aftermath of much-publicized anti-Semitic slurs.

That, single-handedly, might be what is allowing her to continue to push onward – along with the mainstream media refusing to push back.

It would make sense for Omar to disassociate herself with all things anti-Jew. But, nope.

Ilhan will be speaking at a conference with a man who called for murdering Jews.

You read that last sentence correctly.

From Jewish News Syndicate:

Despite battling accusations of anti-Semitism, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) is due to speak this month at a fundraising event alongside a senior charity official who has published social-media posts praising the killing of Jews.

Islamic Relief USA is hosting a fundraising dinner for aid to Yemen on Feb. 23. Omar is due to speak alongside senior Islamic Relief USA official Yousef Abdallah, who was widely criticized in 2017 after the Middle East Forum found that he had expressed violently anti-Semitic ideas on his social-media accounts.

Continued:

Abdallah, who serves as Islamic Relief USA’s “operations manager,” shared a “very beautiful” modernized version of a Palestinian folk story about a resistance hero named Zharif al-Tawl, who took revenge against Jewish “gangs” that had purportedly attacked a Palestinian village by providing guns to “kill more than 20 jews” and “fire rockets at Tel Aviv.”

Pretty wild, isn’t it?

Other posts referred to Jews as “stinking,” and claimed that “the Jews put the outside wall of Al Aqsa [the mosque in Jerusalem] on fire.”

WHOA.

Vice President Mike Pence decided to make it known that he’s ticked off with Omar and her anti-Semitic tweets.

Pence says Omar must “face consequences.”

President Trump, too, says Omar needs to step down.

WATCH:

More on Omar, who said that refugees who come to America are “detained and tortured.”

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) claimed during a rally on Thursday that refugees who come to the United States are “detained and tortured.”

Omar told the crowd of activists, joined in their goal of defunding Immigration and Customs Enforcement, about the story of how her family risked their lives to flee Somalia into Kenya, before eventually coming to the United States. She said that because of her experience, she will “cry” every time she sees a picture of a little girl “standing in the desert waiting to get processed in the country.”

Omar: “The difference between what is happening to some of those little girls and me is that I didn’t have a cage waiting for me. I had an open-armed people with moral clarity, awaiting us and saying ‘you’ve been through a lot, here’s your new home, you’re our new neighbor, you need water and you need food.’

WATCH:

In a recent interview, Omar goes as far as to suggest that Israel is not a democracy.

WATCH:

Omar wants USA powerlifting investigated because that’s what matters?

Ilhan has many lessons to learn.

However, if the MSM keeps covering for her she’ll never have the chance to educate herself about her reckless anti-Semitic ways.

Trump Using Obama Executive Order On Cartels to Build Wall, MSM Looks Other Way

Funny how that works, huh?

John Salvatore

Published

on

President Trump has planned on building a wall on the southern border to protect the American people for a number of years.

After declaring a national emergency, Trump is finally getting his way.

Funny enough, he couldn’t have done it without the help of his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Here are the details, via Law And Crime:

President Donald Trump held a wide-ranging Friday press conference in which he reiterated that if “you don’t have a border, you don’t have a country,” defending his invocation of the National Emergencies Act to help fund the building of The Wall. The president said he aims to stop illegal immigration, the influx of drugs and criminal into America. He cited past emergency declarations, including one by President Barack Obama, that Trump said targeted cartels.

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

[…]

In 2011, Obama said that the organizations The Brothers’ Circle (“a criminal group composed of leaders and senior members of several Eurasian criminal groups that are largely based in countries of the former Soviet Union, but also operate in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America”), the Italian crime syndicate known as Camorra, the more recognizable Yakuza, and the aforementioned Los Zetas.

Democrats have already announced they’ll be launching an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

However, some people seem to be forgetting what previous presidents have done. For example, there are 31 national emergencies still ongoing – dating back to 1979.

President Carter declared two, President Clinton declared 17, and President W. Bush declared 12.

How about President Obama? His number stands at 13.

Where’s the fuss by the MSM?

From Conservative Tribune:

Then we get to former President Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. Thus far, President Trump has declared three active and ongoing national emergencies.

Of Obama’s 11 continuing national emergencies, nine of them were focused exclusively on foreign nations, while only one seemed focused on protecting America — a declaration aimed at punishing individuals “engaging in significant malicious cyber-enabled activities.”

All of the rest of Obama’s national emergencies were focused on blocking property or prohibiting transactions/travel for individuals engaged in various activities in — by order of the date of enactment — Somalia, Libya, transnational criminal organizations, Yemen, Ukraine, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Venezuela and Burundi.

Thanks, Obama?

It sure looks that way – at least on this particular issue.
