Mueller Devastated After Judge Forces Him To Expose Identity Of His 5 ‘Secret’ Witnesses

Love this judge!

Published

on

Looks like Mueller is having a bad week which suits me just fine. It’s no secret that Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump and his supporters is prejudicial in the extreme. Mueller has long ago superseded his mandate in this case. There has never been an ounce of Russian collusion proven in connection with President Trump or his administration. So, in the absence of finding a political holy grail that would take Trump down, Mueller has resorted to prosecuting process crimes against those connected to Trump early on in his run for the presidency, such as Carter Page, Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort.

Mueller was just dealt a devastating blow from a federal judge in his attempt to keep secret five people he granted immunity to in the case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. We now know who they are thanks to Virginia Federal Judge T.S. Ellis, a Ronald Reagan appointee. Mueller claimed in a filing this last week that they haven’t been criminally charged and not naming them would avoid “undue harassment.” That’s a level of concern he has not applied to Trump and his people by any means. Mueller is trying to sidestep the law by not charging these people in the first place. It’s hardly transparent… he wants to take down Manafort behind the judicial curtain. Unfortunately, this judge scuttled that maneuver.

Judge T.S. Ellis also ordered Mueller’s office to provide a list of about 30 witnesses to Manafort’s lawyers. As I understand it, Manafort’s lawyers have a legal right to know who those witnesses are. You can’t prosecute someone and not let the opposing attorney know who the witnesses are. They should have the right to cross-examine them to afford their client the constitutional right to a fair and timely defense. You are required to reveal the people you intend to call as witnesses to the opposition.

I’m really warming to this judge. Judge Ellis also denied the Mueller team permission to ask all potential jurors if they voted for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in 2016. Sounds like this judge is a constitutionalist. Bummer for Mueller. “We’re not going to go inquire into how people voted,” Judge Ellis said.

According to CBS, the five people offered immunity who Mueller identified to the court are:

“Dennis Raico: A person named Dennis Raico, according to CNBC, worked at Chicago-based Federal Savings Bank. The government has been [investigating] whether Manafort promised the president of FSB, Steve Calk, a job in exchange for a $16 million home loan.

“Cindy Laporta: Laporta is employed by Kositzka, Wicks and Company, which is Manafort’s accounting firm, Bloomberg reported;

“Conor O’Brien: O’Brien, like Laporta, works for KWC.

“The other two witnesses who have been granted immunity are Donna Duggan and James Brennan.”

This last week, I heard reports that Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, who has done business with Manafort, was offered immunity. He was not pegged as one of the five in this case. That doesn’t mean Podesta won’t come up as a witness and he may very well still get charged himself. We’ll see. When he is tapped, his name will have to be made public and we will know about it because Mueller is required to inform the court and the defense about potential witnesses.

Judge Ellis is also losing patience with Mueller and nailed him for dragging his feet in all this – from Politico:

“Ellis sounded a skeptical note about the relevance of some of the materials.

““The New York Yankees don’t have anything to do with this case?” the judge asked one of Manafort’s lawyers, who replied that the baseball team could indeed be a topic of discussion since Mueller had listed his client’s season ticket licensing agreements as potential evidence.

“Ellis signaled his reluctance to let the trial veer into “irrelevant stuff” that had little to do with the direct charges the longtime GOP operative faces.

““I’m not going to allow this trial to drag on,” Ellis said. “I’m not in the theater business. You have to be better-looking than that.””

That’s funny. Ellis is constitutional and witty all at once. That’s bad news for Mueller and his team of legalese sharks. I also understand the trial has now been delayed until July. Jury selection begins on July 31st. That’s also good news for Manafort and his attorneys. Secrecy is not going to fly in this trial and I imagine it won’t be a long one. Either Mueller has enough on Manafort to put him away, or he doesn’t. Shenanigans aren’t going to be tolerated here. And as I said, if Manafort goes down, it won’t be for anything to do with Trump. It will have to do with financial dealings that took place long ago. Mueller wants his pound of flesh and he had hoped to force Manafort to flip on Trump. But there’s no there there and Mueller is living now with disappointment. Good, he better get used to it.

More Than 90 Muslims Running For Office Across U.S. All Have The Same Thing In Common

This demographic is growing quickly

Published

on

As the 2018 midterms heat up, the choice of political candidates is becoming ever more diverse and somewhat confusing. There are a ton of Muslim candidates running for office across the United States. Most are Democrats as far as I know and support a liberal agenda. This election cycle has seen more Muslim candidates running for office than I can ever remember in my lifetime. At least one in Minnesota is pretty much a done deal and others may follow suit.

Fayaz Nawabi, who is 31 years old, is one such candidate in San Diego, California. He has never met President Trump, but he does give him credit for his running for office currently. He is running for San Diego City Council. Nawabi is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. He’s also pro-gun control. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates that are spurred to run by Trump’s election and his conservative policies. The blue wave’s political platform is exceedingly liberal in all respects and pretty much the polar opposite of Trump’s.

In fact, Nawabi is part of a new subset of liberal politics… the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims are running for office this time around. They are young and new to politics. They all have in common that they are long shots, stand against President Trump’s policies and are primarily Democrats. But even if they lose, they will surely run again next time around and they are gaining experience on the ground this campaign season.

Their numbers may seem relatively small, but their candidacies are a trend. This is an unprecedented rise in political numbers for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. Currently, there are more than 3.3 million Muslims that live in the United States. And that number is increasing every year. Right now, they hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. Voter participation in Muslim communities is very low as well. That’s something these candidates are trying to rectify.

From The Counter Jihad Report:

“The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation. In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 percent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 percent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 percent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 percent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“While Clinton’s campaign never garnered broad enthusiasm from Muslim communities, Trump’s campaign — which called for the monitoring of mosques and a ban on Muslims entering the United States — delivered a jolt on election night that some American Muslims likened to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“’It woke everyone up,” Nawabi said.

“Now, Muslim candidates are running for a wide range of offices across the country, from local school boards to the U.S. Senate. Some are making their Muslim identity central to their campaigns.

“’When you put someone in a corner and they’re in survival mode, they have a tendency to come out and speak more prominently about their beliefs,” said Nawabi, who considers himself an “unapologetic Muslim” who can quote the Koran from memory and moonlights as a “freelance imam.’”

In Michigan alone, there are thirteen Muslim candidates running for office. Physician Abdul El-Sayed is hoping voters will elect him to be the first Muslim governor in the United States and he has used his religious affiliation unapologetically in his campaign ads against Republican front-runner Bill Schuette, whom Trump has endorsed. “Donald Trump and Steve Bannon would love to see a right-wing radical like Bill Schuette elected in Michigan,” reads a Facebook ad for El-Sayed, who faces a Democratic primary in August. “You know what would be sweet justice? If we elected a 33-year-old Muslim instead of Bill Schuette. Send a message and help elect the first Muslim governor in America.” Michigan is pretty much ground zero for Muslim politics these days. A fierce battle in politics is playing out there in Muslim communities.

Another candidate is Asif Mahmood, a 56-year-old pulmonologist. He would be the first Muslim insurance commissioner in California. Deedra Abboud, 45, in Arizona, or Jesse Sbaih, 42, in Nevada, could be the country’s first Muslim senator. And any one of four Muslim women running for office: Nadia Hashimi, 40, in Maryland; Sameena Mustafa, 47, in Illinois; or Fayrouz Saad, 34, and Rashida Tlaib, 41, in Michigan could be the first female Muslim in Congress.

As I said, many of these new candidates may not win this time around, but give it time. They are determined and their communities are pulling together behind them. The proof will be in the statistics, polls and voter turnouts come election day. This demographic is growing quickly and you will definitely see more Muslims in office in the next election cycle or two should this trend continue.

Sarah Breaks Down In Tears In Front Of Reporters After Bravely Making Personal Announcement

This speaks volumes about who she is.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the pillar of professionalism and grace under fire. Since being hired for the role and having to conduct frequent press briefings to the mainstream media wolves, she’s been a perpetual target of the most ruthless attacks. The media she briefs aren’t the only ones who come at her. Late night talk show hosts and celebrities in Hollywood have also enjoyed making fun of her to no end. After a while, it would take it’s toll on anyone regardless of your strength and solid sense of self-worth.

Sarah has still has to do her job daily in the face of all of that torment and does so flawlessly. From how she holds herself, there’s no telling what she really feels inside. However, she recently lost her composure, and rightfully so, when she broke down in tears in front of reporters as she began to make a very personal announcement.

President Trump knew what he was doing when he put this incredible woman in this position. She’s the very best for the job and more importantly, has Trump’s back. There’s no question how much she genuinely respects him and the job he’s doing as our nation’s leader. Proving that, was when she began to cry while revealing what she found on his desk.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

Western Journalism reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter while his son was serving in Iraq, to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

As she read it, the emotion from the podium was palpable. Like Trump, Sanders has a deep respect for the men and women who serve our country. It was personal to her to make this announcement and obviously important.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders saids during the press briefing, after reading the letter aloud.

Western Journalism added:

Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Each citizen is so important and special to the president, that he read this letter and kept it within reach, despite receiving an overwhelming amount of mail daily, most likely. He promised to work for the “average” American and our military and is doing just that. Part of Joseph’s words to his son also apply to Sanders and Trump as well: “Please don’t lose sight of your purpose.” America needs them both to remain steadfast to their purpose through the challenges heaped on them by detractors. There’s no doubt they too will fight until the end.
