Roger Stone Could Be Headed to Jail for an Instagram Post

Roger Stone is known for his political eccentricity, but this may have crossed one line too many.

Roger Stone

There are few characters in modern political history more bizarre than Roger Stone, and that was true long before his connection to the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

Roger Stone is known as a political “trickster”; which is a nice way of putting that he likes to meddle in the affairs of The Beltway, often for his own well-being.

Furthermore, given what the liberal left seems to think is happening behind the scenes at the White House, Stone’s precious employment by none other than Richard Nixon himself now seems superbly ironic and coincidental.

Being such a vocal political operative, (who also happens to dress a bit like a Rodney Dangerfield caricature of Al Capone), has made Stone one of the most unique players in the supposed “Russia-Gate” saga.

And, as such, he’s already been slapped with a fairly strict gag order as he works toward adjudication.

Stone being Stone, however, he has already managed to push the limits of his minuscule amount of freedom.

Roger Stone, a former political adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, was ordered on Tuesday to appear in court this week over Instagram posts that chastised and appeared to threaten the judge presiding over his criminal trial.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Stone would need to show cause at a hearing on Thursday as to why the posts did not violate a gag order in the case or the conditions of his release.

Stone, who is free on a $250,000 bond and is free to travel to certain U.S. cities without the court’s permission, has pleaded not guilty to charges of making false statements to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Stone’s team was taking the issue seriously.

Stone’s attorneys filed a formal apology with the court on Monday, after he posted a photograph on Instagram of Jackson alongside what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun.

He later deleted the image and reposted it without the crosshairs before removing it again, according to other media outlets.

For all the bizarre stories that we’ve already heard about Roger Stone, it seems as though the longtime DC denizen isn’t done providing entertainment just yet.

1,200 Migrants Form New Caravan, & They Are Walking Directly to the Southern Border

That could be a problem…

The Mueller report was recently released and completely vindicated Donald Trump. Then, fierce Trump critic Michael Avenatti was arrested for fraud. These are things the American public should be talking about, as they are both major stories. And yet, there’s always something else going on. Now, it appears another migrant caravan is making its way to the country’s southern border – and they are 1,200 strong. How can Dems say with a straight face that this doesn’t call for a national emergency? Here are the details… From Reuters: A caravan of some 1,200 migrants from Central America and Cuba began moving towards the U.S. border from southern Mexico this weekend, migration authorities said on Sunday. The National Migration Institute said the migrants were already inside Mexico when they opted to form a caravan in the southern city of Tapachula on the border with Guatemala. More from The Daily Wire: The development is likely to do little to ease tensions over the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, or between the United States and Mexico. The latter pledged several months ago to do all it could to intercept migrant caravans before they made it too far through the country, offering migrants headed to the United States temporary asylum within Mexico and accelerated access to work permits and the Mexican immigration system. The strategies haven’t worked, though, and migrant caravans continue to push through Mexico to the United States, worsening a growing problem on the border, and crowding Mexican border towns with illegal immigrants in line to declare asylum at Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico border checkpoints. Vice President Mike Pence said the original migrant caravans were funded by leftist groups. The MSM didn’t blink. Residents of Tijuana, Mexico collectively uttered the three words Democrats hate hearing: Trump was right. They are referring to…

Pentagon Delivers Major Blow to Dems, Tells Congress It Authorized $1 Billion for Wall Construction

And here we gooooo…

President Trump’s biggest promise to the American people was that he’d deliver a wall on the southern border. He has delivered and he will continue to deliver. Trump knows that if he doesn’t come through, he may just be the first one-term president since George H.W. Bush. Now, the Pentagon has notified Congress that it has authorized $1 billion for new wall construction. The Pentagon notified Congress Monday night that it has authorized the transfer of $1 billion to begin new wall construction along the US-Mexico border, drawing immediate objections from Democratic lawmakers. A Pentagon budget reprogramming notification sent to Capitol Hill on Monday and obtained by CNN indicates that up to $1 billion will go toward building 57 miles of fencing, improving roads and other measures on the southern border. The Department of Defense authorized the Army Corp of Engineers to begin planning and construction for the project Monday night. The department will direct the funds toward 18-foot-high fencing along the Yuma and El Paso sections of the border, according to a letter acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan sent to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. One month ago, President Trump tweeted a video of the wall being built in New Mexico. As you’d imagine, the left was apoplectic.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has become known for her ramblings on Instagram Live. Given that she’s a Millennial, it’s a smart way for her to connect with fans. During a recent feed, AOC went off on everything from President Trump and the border wall to white supremacy and the failed Amazon headquarters deal.
