Since the untimely demise of former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Staffer Seth Rich, rumors have swirled and conspiracy theories have arisen. Some based on factual conclusions and others merely conjecture. Some people believe that Rich’s murder was nefarious and the result of him giving emails to WikiLeaks. Fox News host Sean Hannity covered it extensively until threatened with legal action if he did not cease.
Many have claimed Rich was Wikileaks’ source of emails leaked during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, including Kim Dotcom, the New Zealand entrepreneur who clearly knew about the hacked emails long before they were released. Kim Dotcom claims Rich obtained the emails with a memory stick and has offered to provide proof to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, except Mueller will not respond. Furthermore, two men working with the Rich family – private investigator and former D.C. Police detective Rod Wheeler and family acquaintance Ed Butowsky, also maintain and have previously stated Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior his death.
According to Ed Butowsky, an acquaintance of the family, in his discussions with Joel and Mary Rich, they confirmed that their son transmitted the DNC emails to Wikileaks. Wheeler initially told TV station Fox5 that proof of Rich’s contact with WikiLeaks lies on the murdered IT staffer’s laptop. He later walked the claim back but continues to maintain there was “some communication between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.”

Then there is conservative blogger Matt Couch of America First Media, he claims the former interim head of the DNC, Donna Brazile was at the same hospital on the very same night where Rich was pronounced dead.
Couch writes – “An inside source with knowledge of what occurred at the hospital on the early morning of July 10, 2016, has revealed former DNC Chairperson Donna Brazile and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser arrived shortly after EMTs had delivered the injured victim for emergency treatment of two gunshot wounds to the torso.

Rich, age 27 at the time, was expected to survive his injuries but unfortunately died during surgery much to the surprise of the EMTs who had claimed he was conscious but confused at the scene of the shooting.
With little to no information released publicly about the homicide by DC Metropolitan Police, America First Media investigators had confirmed last year the hospital was, in fact, MedStar Hospital, and the surgeon, who had commenced operating and ultimately pronounced Seth Rich deceased at 5:57 A.M., as being Dr. Christine Trankiem.
The investigation now reveals the unexpected presence of the two prominent DC political figures shortly after the victim’s arrival at the hospital. Investigator and founder of America First Media, Matt Couch, had publicly issued a one week window, withholding these findings, in the hopes one or both of the women would reach out to the team for discussion as to their unexpected presence where the victim would come to pass. Neither woman responded to Couch’s offer.
These developments bring further questions without answers to the murder case which has been shrouded in secrecy for the past two years. Why were two high profile political figures at the hospital in the early morning hours? Who advised them of the shooting so soon after it occurred? Was Seth Rich more than the mid-level employee he had been made out to be by the media and the DNC?”
Rich left Lou’s City Bar around 1:30 A.M. on July 10th after spending the evening there with friends, according to testimony from Joe Capone as stated in a 2016 Crime Watch TV Interview. Capone told the Washington Post he offered Rich a ride home, or to call him a cab. Rich declined both.

A series of oddities surround the murder of Rich. Considered the victim of a botched robbery attempt, Rich was shot twice in the back and left with his wallet, keys, phone, and still wearing a $2,000 necklace and watch. It is clear that robbery was not the motive, despite claims otherwise from Washington Metro police detectives.
Yet another “oddity” muddying the Rich case is the stolen 40 caliber Glock 22 handguns stolen from an FBI agent’s car the same day Rich was murdered. D.C. Metro police state the theft occurred between 5 and 7 A.M. Meanwhile the FBI claimed some two weeks later that the theft occurred between Midnight and 2 A.M. This discrepancy has fueled speculation that the FBI gun was used in Rich’s murder.
He walked home, calling several people along the way. He called his father, Joel Rich, who he missed because he had gone to sleep. He talked with a fraternity brother and his girlfriend, Kelsey Mulka. Around 4:17 a.m., Rich was about a block from his home when Mulka, still on the phone with him, heard voices in the background. Rich reassured her that he was steps away from being at his front door and hung up.
Two minutes later, Rich was shot twice. Police were on the scene within three minutes. Rich sustained bruising on his hands and face. He remained conscious but died at the hospital less than two hours later.
Meanwhile, Brazile denies she was ever present at MedStar Hospital, instead claiming she was in Washington state with CNN commentator Ana Navarro on the day of Rich’s murder. She further dismissed Couch’s claims as little more than an attempt to profit off Rich’s untimely demise, providing tweeted “evidence” as “proof.”

Brazile stated according to the Daily Dot – “This is painful not just to the memory of a great young public servant, but Seth’s parents and his colleagues and friends… There is simply no truth to the claims in the article,” she wrote, adding in another email: “The claim is false, misleading and worse—profiting [off] an innocent death.”
You should be ashamed of yourself. In addition to your deceitful lies about Mr Seth Rich, you have once again published a bogus claim. It’s time you focus on protecting our democracy and publish falsehoods.
— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) August 20, 2018
Brazile’s attorney, Elizabeth Marvin, sent a letter to Couch and America First Media Group with claims he published “false and defamatory content” about Brazile with an “obviously malicious intent.”
Marvin writes – “You published these false and defamatory statements in an attempt to further conspiracy theories and persuade your readers to believe that Ms. Brazile intervened in and/or influenced the investigation into Seth Rich’s murder.”
The letter demands Couch “cease and desist” within 48 hours or Brazile planned to pursue “all available legal remedies” to force him to comply.
Yet Couch is not backing down. He states he has proof as well that Brazile is lying. Brazile has a history of problems with the truth as evidenced by her repeated denials on the leaking of questions to Hillary Clinton prior to a presidential debate. Despite repeated denials on the part of Brazile, evidence emerged to contradict her narrative until she had no choice but to come clean, and here we are again.

Note the Washington, D.C. location stamp, as well as the date and time.
With the political rhetoric as heated as it is right now, we need to remember to love and look out for each other. The alternative is awful.

Here is more…note again the date, time, and location.
Another week…. https://t.co/AvXJdUSofe

When questioned about this discrepancy, Brazile chose to attack Couch. Couch reports – “Strange, how could Donna Brazile be in Seattle, oh that’s right she wasn’t in Seattle at the time of Seth Rich’s murder. Perhaps one should turn off their Geotagging when trying to deceive the American people Donna. Then Ms. Brazile doubled down by attacking me on Twitter, she was so worked up she couldn’t even formulate thoughts.”
I know my truth. And I know my schedule. Besides, I do not troll around with Russian agents.
— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) August 20, 2018
What is more interesting is Brazile is reported to have called police as well as the Rich family demanding to know just why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s death. This is according to Wheeler’s testimony of the events that transpired just after Rich’s murder. Yet it appears police have repeatedly dropped the ball, circling wagons to continue this cover-up.
True Pundit reports two D.C. Metropolitan Police sources confirm Couch’s information is “relatively accurate.”
“Ask Brazile for her cell phone records on the date involved,” one police source said. “That would settle it. Pull the hospital (cctv video) tape from 4 am and let’s see who is on video arriving at the hospital. If you have nothing to hide, give Metro permission to release basic evidence.”
All of which are credible points. Simple to prove or disprove. Let’s see some records and the tape.

Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!
An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.
Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:
An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.
Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.
“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.
Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.
“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”
“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.
“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”
Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.
Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
Heavily Armed Aliens Just Showed Up And Are Caught On Camera – This Is Just The Beginning
Jim Chilton is a fifth-generation rancher in Arizona that finds himself on the front lines of the battle of border security and illegal immigration. He and his wife, Sue live it daily.
The 79-year-old owns and tends a 50,000-acre ranch situated on the U.S.-Mexico border and his property has become a hotspot for illegal aliens crossing into the country. Unlike the heavily fortified border fence in Arizona, the only barriers separating the Chilton ranch from the Mexican border are four strands of rusty barbed wire strung along steel posts.
While tending his cattle, Chilton states he packs no less than two guns and at least 5 gallons of water. The pistol and rifle are to help him ward off the drug smugglers, mules, and human traffickers, or coyotes as they are also known, as they continuously breach the border through his land.
The water is for thirsty border crossers lured by the promise of American jobs and a better life. Chilton states that it used to be that border crossers were simply part of the normal rhythm of everyday life on their ranch. People would come and go freely between the Mexican state of Sonora and Arizona to and from work.
Chilton states: “You’d feed them and give them water and directions.”
The rancher remarked that he has noticed a recent uptick in the number of individuals attempting to use his ranch to enter the country illegally for nefarious means as well. It was not always that way he says.
The early 2000s saw a marked shift as traffic increased significantly in overwhelming numbers, both for the region itself and for its ranchers. Approximately two years ago the migrant traffic slowed to a near halt, and a massive increase in drug smugglers and human traffickers began to flood across the border onto the Chilton ranch.
Now Sue states they are much more guarded about offering any assistance, stating: “At this point, I’m not opening the door except in the rarest of cases.” The danger is simply too great.
As the national debate rages hot over border security and illegal immigration, the Chiltons are living the reality of it. As a result, they have developed a bit more of a nuanced view, attempting to balance their desire for security and protecting America’s borders with the reality of desperate people – men, women, and children alike – wandering across their land starving and parched from the unforgiving desert sun.
Chilton says he does not understand why building a wall to fortify the border is even a question.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Chilton states that:
“Although he respects the Border Patrol agents in the region, he said, he doesn’t understand why they won’t fortify and build a substantial border fence along the Arivaca region, including the five miles of international boundary alongside his ranch.
“It’s inhumane, he said, to allow border crossers to walk in easily through the border, putting their lives at risk from cold nights and hot days. Many are apprehended farther inland anyway.
“The border should be secured at the border,” he said.”
“The couple lament a recently shuttered Border Patrol outpost, the agency’s only significant presence in that area. The outpost, which operated near the ranch, was closed because of budget cuts.
“The couple have even offered to lease 20 acres of their land — about 500 yards from the border — to Border Patrol officials for $1 a year for an outpost. They said the government had not taken them up on the offer.”
The couple states they believe in some sort of guest worker program similar to the federal program previously in place in the 1940s when temporary Mexican laborers were legally allowed to work in the United States. There were no cartels to pay. No human traffickers. No dying in the desert.
At least two neighboring ranchers have chosen to leave rather than continue to fight in the last few years because of just how dangerous the border security situation has gotten. However, the Chiltons state they intend to stay on their land, though it has proven very costly for them to do so.
The cost of maintaining water lines, as well as the international fence to repair it from all the slashing and trampling it undergoes, costs them thousands of dollars in repairs.
Sue states: “We have to maintain the fence or the cattle would all go to Mexico, y no habla español.”
“She gazed out at the trails on the other side of the measly fence, which stretches 15 miles east until it hooks up with an actual border wall in Nogales. She pointed out a network of trails that scar a hill on the Mexican side. It zigzags, leading toward the international fence on the Chilton’s ranch,” reports the LA Times.
“It’s almost as though we have ceded a swath of this United States of America… It has been ceded to operational control of the cartels,” she said.”
