Starbuck’s New “Third Place Policy” Not Going Over Well With Employees and Customers.

I always start my day with a red-eye misto – two shots, extra hot, extra foam – from Starbucks. – Mika Brzezinski

FoxNews.com reports that

Starbucks announced a new policy Saturday that allows anyone to occupy the coffee shop or use the store’s facilities, even if they don’t buy anything, but many are left to wonder if it’ll have a negative impact.

The “Third Place Policy” maintains that employees should consider anyone who enters Starbucks space, including restrooms, cafes and patios, a customer “regardless of whether they make a purchase,” the company said in a statement.

“We are committed to creating a culture of warmth and belonging where everyone is welcome,” Starbucks said.

Customers using the space must still follow a set of general guidelines, which requires them to use spaces as intended, be considerate of others, communicate with respect, and act responsibly, or they might be asked to leave.

This policy comes after the company faced intense scrutiny and backlash when two black men were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia.

The incident, which CEO Kevin Johnson has called “reprehensible,” took place last month and quickly made headlines after video of the arrest circulated online.

According to officials, the officers were told the men were refusing to leave after being denied use of the restroom since they hadn’t purchased anything.

Cellphone footage shows police talking to the two men sitting at a table before handcuffing them and leading them outside. Their friend arrives, a white man identified as real estate developer Andrew Yaffe, and tells police they were waiting for him, but an officer says the men were not complying and were being arrested for trespassing.

Johnson said shortly after the men’s arrest that the company had made a “mistake” and was working to “take appropriate action,” including a review of company policies.

But the resulting Third Party Policy is being called into question by both customers and employees alike, who wonder what impact it’ll have on stores, specifically in urban locations.

In a Starbucks subreddit, people are voicing concerns that the new policy will lead to stores being filled with homeless people and drug users. One user who claims they work at a Chicago Starbucks wrote that a homeless person using the bathroom got into a fight with a customer and police requested to see the store policy before taking action.

“This is exactly the kind of behavior that I fear will drive all the regular customers away, at least from urban locations. Opposing racism is nice and all, but it is not the responsibility of Starbucks to resolve all urban problems at one location let alone turn its stores into homeless drop-in centers,” another user wrote in response.

I have written several times about Liberal Intolerance.

In this case, Liberals are bending over backwards to attempt to prove that they aren’t.

In this case, Starbucks Management’s altruism is about to backfire against them.

I have a confession to make: I don’t drink Starbucks Coffee.

I have been in a Starbucks a total of two times, both work-related.

I’m just not a big coffee drinker.

Besides that, $5 for a cup of coffee? Are they out of their mind?

But, I digress.

The upscale customers of Starbucks are simply not going to abide having “just anyone” come off of the street and use the restroom there. They want to sip their latte and surf the web in genteel surroundings.

They don’t want to suffer the anxiety of a homeless person coming in to use the restroom or hanging out in the restaurant asking patrons for change.

And you know what? They have a point.

In their attempt to smooth over what they perceived as a Public Relations Disaster, the Liberal Executives at Starbucks have potentially placed their patrons in peril.

Through this attempt to save face, it is apparent that Starbucks has shot themselves in the foot.

Starbucks did not have to prove themselves to not be racists.

I observed that they had a diverse workforce during the two times that I have been in one.

By unintentionally jeopardizing their customers, Starbucks has probably decreased their revenue…to say the least.

Liberals are their own worst enemies.

IG Report to Blast FBI Handling of Hillary E-mail Scandal

May 21, 2018

clintem-hillary-clinton-scandals-emails-1

Hillary Clinton is in political trouble and perhaps even legal trouble over her use of private e-mail accounts and bypassing government-issued accounts containing substantial amounts of information that belongs to the federal government. But ultimately, I don’t think this latest controversy will hurt her presidential ambitions. – Bob Beckel
 

Now that you are done laughing hysterically…

FoxNews.com reports that

A highly anticipated report from the Justice Department’s internal watchdog reportedly is expected to hit FBI leaders for moving too slowly to review a batch of Hillary Clinton emails discovered toward the end of the 2016 presidential campaign.
 
Offering a glimpse at the contents of the closely held inspector general review, The Associated Press cited people familiar with the findings in reporting Monday that the investigation would criticize the bureau for its handling of that incident.

It’s just one piece of the comprehensive report that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has compiled looking into the FBI and DOJ’s conduct during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The handling of that late-campaign email discovery, though, has long been a key issue for officials on both sides of the aisle. 

Clinton has repeatedly blasted then-FBI Director James Comey for notifying Congress that he was revisiting the email probe less than two weeks before the election, claiming that announcement hurt her campaign in the final leg. But Republicans also want to know why the FBI waited weeks to act on those emails, which were discovered on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

Some FBI officials, like then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, knew as early as September 2016 of the emails, but the bureau did not obtain a warrant to review them until the following month.

The IG report, which is examining a broad range of FBI actions during the email investigation, is expected to criticize officials, including Comey, for not moving fast enough to examine the email trove and for a weeks long delay in getting a warrant, sources told the AP.

Clinton supporters say the candidate’s name could have been cleared much faster if the FBI acted on the emails as soon as they knew about them. But Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, a Republican, also pressed the DOJ earlier this year for answers on that timeline.

There are suspicions about whether there was an effort to delay pursuing those Clinton files. The Washington Post first reported in January that Horowitz was investigating whether McCabe wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the presidential election.

Horowitz announced last week that the draft report was finished in a letter to members of Congress. He did not say when the results of the review will be officially released to the FBI, DOJ and congressional committees.

This predicted report by the Inspector General really should not come as a surprise to anyone.

It has been known for quite a while now that the hierarchy of the FBI, Comey, McCabe, et al, were loyal to Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton.

As the rapidly escalating unraveling of the “Russia Probe” falsehood has demonstrated, the professional bureaucrats who served in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Obama Administration were more interested in serving their bosses than in the cause of justice.

No only did they know of Hillary’s  cavalier treatment of top-secret e-mails, they also knew that she used the Clinton Foundation as her and Bubba’s very own “Laundromat”, “cleaning up” copious donations from foreign powers who sought favorable treatment from the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It is now very apparent that the corruption ran so deep in the Halls of Power during this time that they were all standing on their  tippytoes trying to see above it.

It is also apparent that the DOJ and the FBI had no interest in investigating Hillary, as they were too busy playing footsie with Christopher Steele, Cody Shearer, and Richard Blumenthal in their mission to knock Donald J. Trump out of the Race for the Presidency.

The revelation of the content of the upcoming report by the Inspector General is just another brick in the bureaucratic wall of corruption that was the Department of Justice and the FBI during Obama’s time in office.

Now that Jeff Sessions, at the bequest of President Trump has asked for the IG to investigate the matter of Deep State Operation against Republican Candidate Trump, these previous investigations into Hillary’s e-mail usage should be evaluated in a new light, as well.

Hopefully, the report which is about to go public and the one about to be investigated will tie all of the Obama Administration ‘s Corruption together in a nice little bow, while ended a Special Counsel Investigation which should have never began in the first place.

Hearing Footsteps…Brennan Pleads with McConnell and Ryan to Stop Trump

May 21, 2018

John-Brennan-Getty

Last night, Investigative Reporter Sara A. Carter tweeted the following…

President Barack Hussein Obama’s CIA Director is scared spitless.

He should be.

Last Monday, realclearinvestigations.com posted the following…

Former CIA Director John Brennan’s insistence that the salacious and unverified Steele dossier was not part of the official Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian interference in the 2016 election is being contradicted by two top former officials.

Recently retired National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers stated in a classified letter to Congress that the Clinton campaign-funded memos did factor into the ICA. And James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence under President Obama, conceded in a recent CNN interview that the assessment was based on “some of the substantive content of the dossier.” Without elaborating, he maintained that “we were able to corroborate” certain allegations.

These accounts are at odds with Brennan’s May 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee that the Steele dossier was “not in any way used as the basis for the intelligence community’s assessment” that Russia interfered in the election to help elect Donald Trump. Brennan has repeated this claim numerous times, including in February on “Meet the Press.”

In a March 5, 2018, letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, Adm. Rogers informed the committee that a two-page summary of the dossier — described as “the Christopher Steele information” — was “added” as an “appendix to the ICA draft,” and that consideration of that appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval process.”

His skepticism of the dossier may explain why the NSA parted company with other intelligence agencies and cast doubt on one of its crucial conclusions: that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a cyberattack on Hillary Clinton’s campaign to help Donald Trump win the White House.

Brennan has always been a shady character.

In mid-2009, Brennan effectively declared an end to the War on Terror: “The President does not describe this as a ‘War on Terrorism,’” Brennan announced. He said that the US would not seek merely to defeat al-Qaeda and its allies, but also to address ignorance, poverty, and repression, since terrorist attacks are often “the final murderous manifestation of a long process rooted in hopelessness, humiliation, and hatred.” As Matt Gurney wrote in FrontPage Magazine, “The War on Terror had become the War on Poverty.” Brennan said that to say the U.S. is fighting “jihadists” is wrongheaded because it is using “a legitimate term, ‘jihad,’ meaning to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal” which “risks giving these murderers the religious legitimacy they desperately seek but in no way deserve.”

Brennan was and remains one of Obama’s biggest “Yes Men”. He and Obama were definitely on the same wavelength in terms of their subservience to the “Religion of Peace”.

Nothing happened in any of the Overseas Clandestine Operations during the Obama Administration that Brennan did not know about. So, Obama also definitely knew about both Dossier #1 and Dossier #2.

Brennan knew that the Steele Dossier was going to be used as a weapon against Trump, even though the dossier was a work of fiction.

So, he was neck-deep in this Deep State Covert Operation against an American Citizen running for public office.

His involvement proves that this was a calculated, organized plan by Obama and members of his Administration to take Donald J. Trump out of the 2016 Presidential Campaign, in order to insure that Hillary Clinton would become the 45th President of the United States of America.

Brennan’s pleas to Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are those of a desperate man, who know that his neck is in the proverbial noose and the trap door underneath him is about to swing open.

It is the unparalleled arrogance of Obama. the members of his Administration, including Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party, and the Main stream Media, which has led us to this moment.

It is time to shut down Mueller and his Democrat Investigative Cadre and to start the investigate of “Obamagate”, the biggest attempted coup of a government north of Cuba.

Let’s get the investigation started that President Trump is now calling for. I think that Obama and Hillary would look great in handcuffs and orange jumpsuits, being frog-marched into a prison.

By Embedding Stefan Halper in Trump’s Campaign, Obama Went Back to His Chicago Poltical Roots

May 20, 2018

stefan-halper-e1526695983400

Per NYPost.com

Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI.

Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.

The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap Trump campaign aides. Papodopoulous has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, while Page was the subject of a federal surveillance warrant.

…The Halper revelation also shows the Obama administration’s FBI began prying into the opposing party’s presidential nominee earlier than it previously admitted.

Halper’s sit-downs with Page reportedly started in early July 2016, undermining fired FBI Director James Comey’s previous claim that the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign began at the end of that month

To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a  member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.

This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.

According to The Institute for World Politics, where he is a Research Professor…

From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.

His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia

Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.

1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80  National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980  National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:

The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown. 

1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.

With a list of accomplishments like those above, Halper made the the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign.

You realize what this revelation means, don’t you, gentle reader?

It means that a sitting President embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump. And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Hillary Clinton School of Grace and Charm to sell you.

Obama made Nixon look like an amateur.

I have written a lot of blogs detailing just how petty and vindictive a person that Barack Hussein Obama is. However, even I had no idea the extent to which “Chicago Politics” had invaded the inner workings of our Federal Government under Petulant President Pantywaist.

Looking back on Obama’s rise to political power, however, these accusations are not far fetched, at all.

In 2004, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) decided to run for The United States Senate.

In order to have a successful Senatorial campaign, Scooter had to secure tremendous financial backing and be the recipient of astute political mentoring.  No problem.

It is now very well-known that George Soros, evil genius, major Democratic Party donor and anti-Israel crusader, has been a generous contributor to Barack Obama. However, not too many people know that a loophole in McCain-Feingold allowed Soros and his family members to be extremely generous in their support of Obama’s 2004 Senatorial campaign.

Obama had to run against Blair Hull in the primary and then Jack Ryan in the general (both multi-millionaires). Obama received huge donations from individuals, to so-called “millionaires exception.”  Usually,  individuals are limited to giving $2300 to candidates in federal elections, but if the candidates are running against millionaires, these limits do not apply and candidates are allowed to receive up to $12,000 from a single individual. Soros and his family gave Barack Obama $60,000. This does not count the money that Soros was funneled to so-called 527 groups (Moveon.org, for example) that have also been politically active; nor does it include money that Soros raised from tapping a network of friends, business associates, and employees.

Besides garnering unlimited campaign funds, as the campaigns entered their closing rounds, the news ”happened to be” leaked to media outlets that both Hull and Ryan had “personal scandals” in their past. The timely release of this news wiped out both of their campaigns, leading to an easy victory for Obama in the primary and then in the general election.

The New York Times Magazine revealed that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political and media adviser, may well have been behind the leak of the story that doomed the Hull candidacy as the primary reached its home stretch.  I’m shocked.

As he has shown over the years, Axelrod was right at home operating in this gray area, part idealist, part hired muscle. One can not bring up Axelrod’s name  in certain circles in Chicago without the matter of the Blair Hull divorce papers coming up. Approaching the 2004 Senate primary, it was clear that it was a two-man race: the millionaire liberal, Hull, leading in the polls, and Obama, who was the figurehead of an impressive grass-roots campaign. One month before the vote, The Chicago Tribune “just happened” to reveal, at the end of a long profile of Hull, that during a divorce proceeding, Hull’s second wife filed for an order of protection. This revelation proceeded to erupt into a full-fledged scandal.  This scandal destroyed Hull’s campaign and handed Obama an easy primary victory.

The Tribune reporter who wrote the story later admitted in print that the Obama camp had “worked aggressively behind the scenes” to push the story. However, a lot of folks in Chicago believe that Axelrod leaked the initial story. They will tell you that before signing on with Obama, Axelrod interviewed with Hull. They also point out that Obama’s TV ad campaign just happened to start at almost the same time. Axelrod swears up and down that “we had nothing to do with it” and that the campaign’s television ad schedule was in the works for a long time.

Axlerod’s explanation?

An aura grows up around you, and people assume everything emanates from you.

The lowdown political chicanery that was used to gain Obama his Senate Seat was just the beginning of a career of political corruption, Chicago Style.

I would love to see Obama, Hillary, Comey, and the rest of the Deep State Conspiracy hauled before Congress first and then frog-marched to jail.

I wrote when all of this first started coming out hat I thought that we were all in the middle of a Tom Clancy Novel being played out in real life.

Evidently, there were several “novels” “published” that we never even knew about…until now..

We Don’t Need Gun Control, We Need Evil Control

May 19, 2018

Yesterday morning, in the town of Santa Fe, Texas, the unthinkable happened again.

A student brandishing a handgun and a shotgun taken from his father walked into the high scool which he attended and killed 10 innocent people.

It is apparent that this young man did not act alone as there were several bombs placed around the campus of the school including those of the pressure-cooker variety which were used by the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing,

Immediately after it happened the usual voices were heard , including that of young Media Darling David Hogg, making political hay of the incident and calling for more gun control.

If gun control was the answer to these acts of wanton violence which are happening more and more frequently, then the city of Chicago, Illinois would be the safest place in the United States of America because they have the strictest gun control laws in our nation.

It has been reported that the young man wore a trench coat which had Nazi swastikas and the Communist hammer-and-sickle insignia on it. If this is accurate then it could mean that he was a member of the violent anti-Trump organization of idiots known as the Antifa.

Still, that does not excuse the actions of this young man who so heiniously and efficiently took the lives of those whom he struck down in cold blood.

In both the case of this young man who attended the local Greek Orthodox Church and the mass murderer of innocents at Parkland High School in Florida, there were markers along the way which should have told those who were involved in their lives, both parents and friends, that there was something just not right with them.

You can call it profiling or you can call it a spirit of discernment, as the Bible describes it. Those who were around these individuals should have noticed something.

That is where the title of this piece comes in.

We need evil control. What I mean, is that we need parents to actually act like parents and be involved in their children’s lives. We need teachers and friends who care enough about individuals to say something to both them and to their families when something is just not right.

As someone who watched his parents deal with the mental illness of a family member, I’m not saying that it will be easy. It is a hard thing to face up to and to confront. But, it has to be done.

Those who are constantly calling for gun control seek to punish the entire nation for the actions of some by taking away our 2nd Amendment rights.

If those same people would stop for a moment and consider that guns are inanimate objects which cannot fire themselves and then focus on the true cause of the increase in violence in our nation, then perhaps we could actually start making some headway and provide the care and treatment to the individuals who need it in time to avoid the horrific event of a mass murder, such as happened yesterday in Santa Fe, Texas.

I am not saying that this will get rid of all of the mentally ill people in our country who wish to murder others, but it seems to me that back in the day when parents actually raised their children, along with the rest of the neighborhood who raised us, we did not see this preponderance of violent acts which we are seeing today.

Also, one last thing. Getting back to raising our children and grandchildren in the “Faith of Our Fathers”, wouldn’t be such a bad idea, either.

Trump to Propose Cutting Title X Funding to Planned Parenthood

May 18, 2018

baby-hands-600-li (1)

[Where am I? This is July…not January. What are all these bright lights? What’s that smell? I don’t understand. I was inside my mother, sucking my thumb, all nice and safe and warm. The next thing I know, I feel this pressure on either side of my head, and I was ripped out of my mother.

Why is this happening to me? I have a whole life ahead of me.

I deserve a Mother and a Father. I will never have those. Grandparents, either. Heck, I won’t even get to know my cousins.

I want to know what milk tastes like. I want to hold a Cheerio in my hand and put it in my mouth. I want to know what it’s like to get my first tooth…to take my first step….to hear music for the first time. I want to hold a puppy. I want to have a first day in school. I want to have a best friend. I want to ride a bike. I want to have a best friend and go out to play with them. I want to know what Christmas is all about. I want to eat a turkey leg at Thanksgiving…and to see a fireworks display on the 4th of July. I want to wear costumes on Halloween. I want to go to ballgames with my Father.

I want to watch cartoons. I want to love and be loved.

I want to fall in love. I want to experience my first kiss. I want to have my parents drop me and my date off at the movie and then pick us up. I want to play sports in school…or be an artist…or be a musician…or, just be a kid.

I want to go to a pep rally. I want to dance at a prom. I want to get a report card. Heck, I want to taste a school lunch.

I want to graduate and go to college. I want to start work…and have a family.

I want to live!

Wait! What are you doing with those scissors! Don’t…]

I was born three days before my mother’s 40th birthday. To say I was a surprise is an understatement. As I recently wrote, I truly believe that they were going to name me “Oops”. That being said, I am grateful that God convicted them, regarding the sanctity of the life that my mother was carrying within her.

And now, perhaps more babies will be given the opportunity to live.

WeeklyStandard.com reports that

On Friday, the Trump administration will announce a proposed rule to cut taxpayer funding to abortionists like Planned Parenthood under Title X, a program that provides $260 million annually in federal funding for contraception and other “family planning” initiatives.

“The proposal would require a bright line of physical as well as financial separation between Title X programs and any program (or facility) where abortion is performed, supported, or referred for as a method of family planning,” a Trump administration official tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD in an email.

The 1970 law establishing Title X states: “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” But in the 1970s and 1980s, the law was interpreted to allow Title X programs to refer patients for abortions, be co-located with abortion clinics, and lobby for pro-abortion policies—so long as federal dollars did not directly fund abortions. In 1988, President Reagan’s secretary of Health and Human Services issued regulations to end these practices that blurred the line between funding contraception and promoting abortion.

The 1988 Reagan regulation was immediately challenged in court and never enforced, but it was upheld by the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision in the case Rust v. Sullivan. By the time abortionists might have actually lost their Title X funds, however, Bill Clinton took office and killed the Reagan regulation, a policy that has remained in effect to this day. This anti-abortion regulation wasn’t reinstated by the George W. Bush administration.

“Unlike the Reagan regulation, the proposal will not prohibit counseling for clients about abortion, but neither will it include the current, potentially illegal mandate that projects must counsel and refer for abortion,” a Trump administration official tells TWS. “This proposal does not necessarily defund Planned Parenthood, as long as they’re willing to disentangle taxpayer funds from abortion as a method of family planning, which is required by the Title X law. Any grantees that perform, support, or refer for abortion have a choice – disentangle themselves from abortion or fund their activities with privately raised funds.”

Last May, the Washington Times reported that

Planned Parenthood executives joked about decapitated fetuses, admitted to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs and said clinics have a financial incentive to sell human tissue in a new undercover video released Thursday.

The three-minute video was recorded at an annual National Abortion Federation meeting by pro-life investigators with the Center for Medical Progress. The advocacy group said it’s just a preview of never-before-seen content that has been sealed for almost two years due to legal fights.

In the video, Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, admits to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs.

“You know, sometimes she’ll tell me she wants brain, and we’ll, you know, leave the calvarium till last, and then try to basically take it or, actually, you know, catch everything, and even keep it separate from the rest of the tissue so it doesn’t get lost,” Ms. Nucatola says.

Also, Deb VanDerhei, national director of Planned Parenthood’s Consortium of Abortion Providers, admits that some clinics are motivated to sell fetal tissue for profit.

“But the truth is that some might want to do it for — to increase their revenues. And we can’t stop them,” she says in the video.

This is the kind of callousness and unadulterated EVIL which deserves absolutely none of our tax dollars.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has a abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

I have always said that, in what seems to be a majority of the cases, abortion is a selfish act. It ends the life of an innocent human being, before they have even had the chance to live it.

Life is not, and never will be, a bicycle ride in the park.

Life is a series of challenges, which every person has to meet head on, and make the choice between right and wrong for themselves.

We have been given Free Will by Our Creator because WE ARE LOVED.

In fact, He loves us so much, that He gave us that still small voice, which resides in each one of us, which is referred to in secular terms as the conscience and is known to Christians as the Holy Spirit.

It is this still small voice which helps us make the important decisions which we face in this life, in order to overcome the challenges which we are faced with.

It’s also undoubtedly why the overwhelming majority of Americans remain upset about the ghoulish resurrection of the practices of and imitation of the Third Reich by Planned Parenthood through their monstrous marketing of the body parts of aborted babies.

Regardless of what you see in the Main Stream Media, the majority of Americans still know the difference between right and wrong.

And, so does the President which we elected.

Why Mueller Should End the Probe Today

May 17, 2018

stormy-justice-600-la

“Mueller has zero evidence of collusion, has only been focused on the so called ‘thought crimes’ of the president, and it’s not a crime to have thoughts.” – Sean Hannity

Last night, on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle”, Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump’s Legal Team, told Host Laura Ingraham, when asked when Special Counsel Robert Mueller should end the Trump-Russia Collusion Probe that “He should end it today”.

Truer words were never spoken.

As previously reported on SpartaReport.com, Rudy also announced yesterday that Mueller told the Trump Team that he would not indict the sitting President.

Basically, because he can’t.

After almost a year and a half, Mueller’s team of investigators, consisting mostly of Democratic Donors, have come up just two things: “Jack” and Squat”.

Since he has said that he will not indict President Trump, he needs to fold up his tent and end this Dog and Pony Show being funded by the American Taxpayers.

I mean, think about it, Mueller was placed in his position by his friend Jim Comey, a now-disgraced fellow Former FBI Director.

He is leading an investigation based upon a dossier which is as phony as Elizabeth Warren’s “Indian Heritage”, staffed by big time donors to the Political Party whose Presidential Candidate the sitting President beat in a race decided by the Electoral College.

Nope. No bias there.

Mueller’s investigation has gone so far afield that I would not be surprised if they haven’t interviewed Melania’s manicurist and Trump’s barber.

At this point, the only reason for Mueller to continue an investigation which has failed miserably is to interfere with fulfilling the mandate which the American People have given President Trump.

In other words, if Mueller was ever actually interested in justice, that mission has been corrupted into one of pettiness and interference designed to usurp the will of the American People.

History will not be kind to the Democratic Party when reviewing their actions after losing the 2016 Presidential Election.

Quite frankly. the use of a Special Counsel as a political weapon to attempt to bring down a sitting president where there is quite obviously no “there” there, is a fool’s folly at best and a vendetta, at worst.

Mueller does indeed need to end the Trump-Russia Probe today.

The Inspector General’s Report is ready to be released…and he needs to be ready to defend his own actions as regards the Uranium One Scandal and any other political shenanigans he may have been involved in while he worked in the Obama Administration.

Mueller has ridden this horse right into the ground. It is time to stop beating it.

What Do the Democrats Stand For Going Into the Midterms…Besides Hate?

May 16, 2018

Does anyone actually know what the Democratic Party Platform is going into the Midterm Elections?

From what I have seen while watching the news, both local and national, all they seem to stand for is their deep, abiding, visceral hatred of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Back on March 3rd of this year, Charlie Savage wrote the following in a News Analysis posted on NYTimes.com

Despite simmering unrest, there have been only a few extraordinary moments that broke the mold of public stability. Those include peaceful demonstrations, like the post-inaugural women’s march and the airport protests against Mr. Trump’s initial ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries. Far more disturbing, they also include the near-fatal shooting of a Republican congressman and several other people at a baseball practice by a man who was furious at Mr. Trump and Republicans, and the spectacle of throngs of white supremacists emboldened by the era to march in Charlottesville, Va. — culminating in an apparent neo-Nazi sympathizer plowing his car into anti-racist counterprotesters, injuring dozens of people and killing a woman. Fortunately, those two moments of extreme political violence have been exceptions.

For a counterexample of how a time of intense political bitterness can start to tear this country apart, look back exactly half a century to 1968. In that chaotic year, America slashed and clawed at itself amid the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the riots that followed; the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as he ran for president; swelling antiwar demonstrations on college campuses amid growing recognition that the government had been lying about the course of the Vietnam War; and the police beatings of protesters in Chicago outside the Democratic National Convention.

Factors like the draft and the race relations of the period made that tumultuous year a particular historical moment. But one difference between then and now is salient: Arguably, there was little reason to believe that the November 1968 election was likely to provide immediate relief.

We are lucky that so far 2018 does not look like a new 1968. But the relative calm may be like an unexploded bomb, its volatility not so much defused as contained by the thought that Trump Republicans will be punished in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. These expectations are widespread. After the big Democratic special election victories in places handily carried by Mr. Trump in 2016, from Virginia and Alabama to Wisconsin, Republican lawmakers in purple districts are retiring to avoid ending their careers in humiliating defeats.

Democrats, meanwhile, relish visions of a new congressional majority wielding its subpoena power to flay the Trump administration with oversight investigations. They can see it now: Making public Mr. Trump’s hidden tax returns and otherwise laying bare any financial dealings between foreign governments and his businesses. Inviting the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct to testify at a televised hearing. Unearthing what his appointees have been doing in places like the Environmental Protection Agency, where collection of fines from polluters has plummeted.

Almost taking a House flip for granted, Democrats whisper that a tsunami-level wave would also flip the Senate and stop Mr. Trump’s assembly line for turning conservative lawyers into life-tenured federal judges. Some even fantasize about impeachment.

Such vivid anticipation steers those sputtering at Mr. Trump’s presidency to take deep breaths and bide their time until Nov. 6, which draws closer every day: The 2018 campaign cycle formally starts this week with primary voting in Texas.

But a significant Democratic wave may not materialize. Good economic news, for example, tends to blunt anti-incumbent sentiments.

Having written this at the beginning of March, Mr. Savage could not have foreseen the great things which President Trump would accomplish between then and now, such as retrieving the 3 American Hostages from North Korea and opening the United States Embassy in Jerusalem way ahead of schedule.

However, he did get one thing right:

It’s the Economy, stupid!

Average Americans living in the Heartland, like myself, love getting extra take home pay.

Trump’s efforts to turn around America’s Economy are greatly appreciated by us.

On the other hand, what have the Democrats, who desperately want us to vote for them in the Midterm Elections, done for us?

Not a cotton-pickin’ thing.

In fact, if you are a businessman or an employee in Seattle, Washington, they are forcing the Marxist Theory of Socialism down your throats by levying a “Head Tax” on you, in order to “care for Seattle’s homeless population”.

Not to sound crass and uncaring, but have those Far Left Politicians up there run all of the Christian Charities, like Memphis’ Union Mission, out of town?

But, I digress…

Evidently, it is like Rush Limbaugh has been saying for quite a while now,

There are no Moderates left in the Democratic Party.

Otherwise, Liberals would have stopped their ongoing National Temper Tantrum which began the night of November 8, 2016, months ago.

Just like the child who believes that they will receive attention by jumping up and down, hollering, screaming, and crying until their eyes turn red and their face turns blue, Democrats have made the mistake,, which came from their own arrogance, that they majority of Americans hold the same visceral hatred from President Trump that they do.

They actually still believe, even after losing the 2016 Presidential Election, that theirs is the majority political philosophy in our nation.

When you question them about that, they will argue that Hillary received the majority of the Popular Vote.

However, here are some facts that you can answer them with…

32603684_886896691506331_4329291197160882176_n

Hate has never accomplished anything.

This country was not established on hate.

This country was established by men and women yearning to be free to worship God as they chose to do so.

Americans cherish our Liberty.

Average Americans have seen what Marxism has done to other countries around the world and we want no part of it.

Democrats, if you want any chance at holding the Presidency ever again, lose the hate, lose the arrogant intolerance, and embrace American Reality,

It’s too late for the Midterms.

As the brilliant cartoon by Antonio Branco illustrates above, that “Blue Wave” that you were counting on….

…is going to be a drip.

Mueller “Colluded” With the Russians in 2009

May 15, 2018

mueller-investigation

TheHill.com reports that

Special counsel Robert Mueller has withstood relentless political attacks, many distorting his record of distinguished government service.

But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.

In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.

Yes, that’s the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller’s current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration.

The Levinson mission is confirmed by more than a dozen participants inside and outside the FBI, including Deripaska, his lawyer, the Levinson family and a retired agent who supervised the case. Mueller was kept apprised of the operation, officials told me.

Some aspects of Deripaska’s help were chronicled in a 2016 book by reporter Barry Meier, but sources provide extensive new information about his role.

They said FBI agents courted Deripaska in 2009 in a series of secret hotel meetings in Paris; Vienna; Budapest, Hungary, and Washington. Agents persuaded the aluminum industry magnate to underwrite the mission. The Russian billionaire insisted the operation neither involve nor harm his homeland.

“We knew he was paying for his team helping us, and that probably ran into the millions,” a U.S. official involved in the operation confirmed.

One agent who helped court Deripaska was Andrew McCabe, the recently fired FBI deputy director who played a seminal role starting the Trump-Russia case, multiple sources confirmed.

…So why care about some banished Russian oligarch’s account now?

Two reasons.

First, as the FBI prepared to get authority to surveil figures on Trump’s campaign team, did it disclose to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that one of its past Russian sources waived them off the notion of Trump-Russia collusion? 

Second, the U.S. government in April imposed sanctions on Deripaska, one of several prominent Russians targeted to punish Vladimir Putin — using the same sort of allegations that State used from 2006 to 2009. Yet, between those two episodes, Deripaska seemed good enough for the FBI to ask him to fund that multimillion-dollar rescue mission. And to seek his help on a sensitive political investigation. And to allow him into the country eight times.

Believe it or not, gentle readers, Comrade Deripaska was not the only Russian whom Mueller had contact with in 2009.

Back on October 23, 2017, Breitbart.com presented the following “Fact Sheet” about the scandal…

  1. Peter Schweizer Broke the Uranium One Scandal
    Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer broke the Uranium One scandal in his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. In the book, he reported that Clinton’s State Department, along with other federal agencies, approved the transfer of 20 percent of all U.S. uranium to Russia and that nine foreign investors in the deal gave $145 million to Hillary and Bill Clinton’s personal charity, the Clinton Foundation.
  2. The New York Times Confirmed the Scandal in 2015
    The New York Times confirmed Schweizer’s Uranium One revelations in a 4,000-word front-page story by a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter. It detailed how the Russian energy giant Rosatom had taken over the Canadian firm with three separate purchases between 2009 and 2013, largely coinciding with Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state.
  3. The FBI Uncovered Evidence that Russian Money Was Funneled to the Clinton Foundation
    The Hill reported last week that ahead of the deal, the FBI had uncovered “substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering” to expand Russia’s nuclear footprint in the U.S. as early as 2009. The agency also found that Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. to benefit the Clinton Foundation. The Justice Department would sit on the evidence for four years before looking to prosecute, by which time the deal had been approved.
  4. Congress Is Now Investigating
    The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a probe into the scandal and has sent requests for more information to 10 federal agencies involved in the approval of the partial sale of Uranium One, asking what they knew about the FBI investigation and when.
  5. Bill Clinton Was Paid $500,000 for a Speech in Moscow
    Bill Clinton bagged a $500,000 speech in Moscow paid for by a Kremlin-backed bank shortly after Russia announced its intention to take a majority stake in the company. According to the Times, Clinton traveled to Moscow in June 2010, the same month Rosatom struck its deal for its majority stake in Uranium One.
  6. The Clinton Foundation Took Big Bucks from Uranium Investors
    According to theTimes, The Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, a mining investor who was also the chairman of Uranium One when Rosatom acquired it. It also received $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more from Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining financier whose company merged with Uranium One.
  7. Senate Republicans Want an FBI Gag Order Lifted Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has called for the Justice Department to lift the gag order on the FBI’s whistleblower, indicating that he may have more explosive revelations related to the case and on what the Clintons and the Obama administration knew about the case and when they knew it.

I believe that the Trump Russian Collusion Fairy tale was actually a False Flag Operation designed by the Democratic Party Hierarchy, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Street Media, and their operatives on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration itself, to keep the nation’s attention diverted to the Trump/Russia Lie, when in reality the Uranium One Treasonous Operation by Hillary Clinton WAS AND REMAINS THE STORY.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush, whom he served under for 10 years.

When Barack Hussein Obama became President, Mueller served under him for 2 more years. During that time, he acted as a “mule” for Secretary of State Clinton, carrying a sample of the before-mentioned seized uranium BACK to Vladimir Putin via the Russian Embassy.

Mueller’s past, plus the fact that he recruited lawyers who are Democratic Donors to fill out his “Investigative Staff” led me and others to throw up a red flag about this guy from the get-go, knowing that he was another Establishment Political Weasel like James Comey, who followed Mueller as Director of the FBI.

Trump’s “Russiagate” is an invention of the Democratic Party in more ways than one. Not only was Hillary Clinton guilty of nefarious dealings with the Russians when she was Obama’s Secretary of State, she and her Campaign Staff attempted to work with the Russians in an attempt to sabotage the campaign of Donald J. Trump in order to overcome her own shortcomings and win the Presidency. When that didn’t happen, she, along with the Democrat Elite, made up the version of “Russiagate” which the MSM and Liberal Political Activists (but, I repeat myself) have been bombarding skeptical Americans with for the first year of the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

Mueller and the former members of Obama’s Administration, including Hillary Clinton, who have been so vocal about the Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale have known the truth all along…that they were the only ones guilty of “colluding with the Russians”.

There are several players involved in the Obama Administration who knew about Uranium One and they ALL need to be heard from, including Obama, Hillary, and Holder.

As I have written before, this whole massive misdirection play which I call the Trump-Russian Collusion Fairy Tale is going to go down as one of the biggest “nothingburgers” in American History.

And, the Obama Administration will be known as the most corrupt Administration in American History, with Hillary Clinton being the most corrupt Secretary of State.

Obama will leave a legacy, alright. A legacy of corruption.

Former Obama Staffers Advise European Leaders to Defy Trump Over Iran Nuke Deal

May 14, 2018

eod-trump-600-li

Unfortunately, Mr. President, Iran has on their side a cadre of Modern-day Benedict Arnolds ready to sell out their own country to help them keep the “Gentleman’s Agreement” they made with your predecessor, Petulant President Pantywaist.

This past weekend, The Washington Free Beacon reported that

Two former Obama administration officials suggested in a New York Times op-ed published Thursday that European countries allied with the United States could expel American ambassadors in retaliation for President Donald Trump withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.

“Europe Doesn’t Have to Be Trump’s Doormat,” wrote Steven Simon and Jonathan Stevenson. Simon served as the National Security Council’s senior director for the Middle East and North Africa, while Stevenson served as the regional director for political-military affairs.

“After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany, and the European Union are also parties,” they wrote. “This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism.”

The two men urged European countries to go beyond “mere words” and counter Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal with real, concrete actions.

“The European Union could, for instance, announce the withdrawal of member-states’ ambassadors from the United States,” they suggested. “Isn’t this what states do when diplomatic partners breach solemn agreements, expose them to security risks and threaten to wreak havoc on their economies?”

Simon and Stevenson went on to suggest that, depending on how the United States reacted, “European capitals might even follow up with expulsion of American ambassadors.”

As the U.S. and other world powers negotiated the Iran deal in 2015, the Obama administration was critical of what its officials described as Republican efforts to undermine negotiations. Vice President Joe Biden complained that Republicans “undercut a sitting president in the midst of sensitive international negotiations,” while Obama himself accused them of making “common cause with the hardliners in Iran.”

First, we found out about John Kerry and his recent meetings with the Iranians in an attempt to keep his Former Boss’ legacy intact through saving the Iranian Deal.

Now, two high-ranking members of Obama’s National Security Council have written an op ed for the New York Times advising European Leaders to “join the Resistance” against President Trump and to side with Iran against the country which they were supposed to be serving during the Obama Administration.

Also, over the weekend it was announced that Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari warned Western officials this week that if they don’t put pressure on the Trump Administration the Iranian Regime will leak the names of all Western officials who were bribed to pass the Iran Nuke Deal.

Try to wrap your heads around this, gentle readers:

A Former President and his staffers (because you can bet your Obama Phone that he is in on all of this) are committing sedition and engaging in treasonous activities against the current leadership of the United States of America.

How sick a bunch of losers do Obama, Kerry, et all, have to be to favor the Radical Islamic State of Iran over a nation which they had sworn to protect from “enemies foreign and domestic”?

The leadership of Iran, including the Mad Mullahs, are definitely “foreign enemies”.

And now, proving a lot of Americans right (God help us), it turns out that the Obama Administration were “domestic enemies” all along.

How many more “Foreign Agents” will be revealed as past and present members of our Federal Government if the Iranian Leadership releases their “Bribe List”?

President Trump won’t have to drain “The Swamp” if that happens.

The backlash against those who took a bribe from the Iranians to allow Obama’s Nuke Deal will drain it for him.
