Erdogan’s Latest U-Turn: ‘Assad is a Terrorist, and Must Go’

Once again, Turkey’s leader has thrown a spanner into the Astana peace process, as he dog whistles to the Muslim Brotherhood support base.
This week, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan performed yet another u-turn by declaring that Syrian President Bashar Assad is ‘a terrorist’ during a news conference in Tunis.
‘Assad is definitely a terrorist who has carried out state terrorism,’ Erdogan said. ‘It is impossible to continue with Assad. How can we embrace the future with a Syrian president who has killed close to a million of his citizens?’

Fake News: Mainstream Media Claims That White House Intern Is Racist For Using ‘OK’ Hand Gesture

In some of our intern pictures, I emulated the OK sign the President sometimes makes. That was foolish. I should have listened more closely to the Commander-in-Chief and given the thumbs up. (1/2)
— Jack Breuer (@jjbreue) December 29, 2017

Another day, another piece of evidence that points to the stunning fact that the mainstream media is willing to spread complete disinformation on a daily basis in their desperate, never ending attempt to hurt President Trump.
The latest example comes in the form of a pathetic hit piece in The Daily Mail that claims that former White House Intern Jack Breuer used a racist hand gesture in a November photo op with the president and fellow interns.
The problem? Breuer isn’t actually a white supremacist and was flashing the ‘OK’ hand gesture that the president and others have used in the past. Keep in mind that the ADL itself has already confirmed this is NOT a racist hand symbol.
The Daily Mail report breathlessly reads:
A former White House intern is coming under fire after flashing a known ‘white power’ sign during a photo-op with President Donald Trump.

Deep State Takedown In Progress: Is Trump About To Start Arresting Top Democrats And Bringing Them To Justice?

When Donald Trump gets hit, he always hits back even harder. So when the deep state decided to conduct a legal witch hunt against President Trump and his family, they should have expected that Trump would return the favor. In recent days, there have been all sorts of rumblings about sealed indictments, pending arrests and a ‘deep state takedown’. Many believe that we are on the verge of seeing some of the most prominent Democrats in the entire nation being arrested and thrown in prison. We shall see how all of this plays out, but in this article I am going to focus on the things that have been confirmed so far.
First of all, let’s talk about the documents that are going to be released on Friday. According to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, the State Department is scheduled to release 2,800 government documents which were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop…
.@StateDept will publish releasable portions of 2800 government docs that @FBI found on Anthony Weiner laptop tomorrow (Dec. 29th). Again, thanks to @JudicialWatch lawsuits. Will @RealDonaldTrump DOJ finally take action on Clinton/Abedin misdeeds?
Remember, this is just a portion of the documents that were found on his laptop, and the really juicy stuff is almost certainly not going to be found in these government docs.
There are persistent rumors that the really juicy stuff on his laptop contains evidence of sexual misconduct by top Democrats that would far surpass anything that has come out about members of Congress so far. We are potentially talking about the type of stuff that could send people to prison for life, and we need to keep demanding for that material to be released to the public as soon as possible. I understand that there are ongoing investigations that cannot be compromised, but there is no excuse for things to drag on for this long.

WATCH: MAN YELLS AT COPS SO THEY PEPPER SPRAY HIM TO DEATH & COVER IT UP

An investigation by an independent watchdog group revealed police claimed to be heroes after using pepper spray on a man until he died.
Highland Park, NJ – Twenty-eight-year-old Daniel Nagahama reportedly told Highland Park Police Department officers he’d gotten into a fight with his mother and was pushed out of her car, onto the street.
That’s where officers first found the young man, lying face down in the middle of a suburban intersection. But by the end of the June 2016 interaction with police, Nagahama would be pepper sprayed to death, and the prosecutor’s office would spend the next year and a half lying about what really happened that day.
Some said Nagahama was drunk. Others said he got hit by a car, and still, others claimed he must have gotten into a fight. No one knows what caused Nagahama to be found nearly unconscious that summer day. But one thing’s for certain. He was still very much alive.

How Trump is Accelerating the Decline of US Global Influence

The "Moderate Rebel" terrorists in Syria certainly miss you Barack, you were so generous to all of them.
— Patrick Henningsen (@21WIRE) December 29, 2017

It should also be said that the current US Administration is merely finishing the job which started under three consecutive two-term presidents; Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama – something to bear in mind as Trump enters his first year in office.
This new year, let us not forget who re-ignited the Middle East crisis, with the consecutive sackings of Libya and Syria…
While ‘Make America Great Again’ might be the political campaign de jour at home, these next four years are likely to coincide with an overall decline in US influence in the world.

Indiana Bill Would Force NFL Colts To Repay Angry Fans Offended By Anthem Protests

I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.
— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) October 8, 2017

The political kneeling protest by NFL players has now reached the blowback phase. Angry football fans across the United States are demanding that NFL teams refund their tickets based on the player acts they deem offensive during the National Anthem. It’s a vicious trend coupled with a rating collapse that’s creating a toxic feedback loop for the NFL.
And now, the latest escalation comes from an Indiana lawmaker, who intends to file legislation that would require Indianapolis Colts to refund fans at home games if players kneel during the National Anthem.
Rep. Milo Smith, R-Columbus, who is spearheading the movement said his bill would allow fans at home games who feel disrespected by kneeling to ask for a refund in the first quarter.

SHOCK: UNSEALED COURT DOCS SHOW HOW PROSECUTORS TRIED TO RIG THE BUNDY TRIAL

Unsealed court documents detail how the team of prosecutors tasked with convicting Cliven Bundy and his sons of crimes relating to a 2014 armed standoff failed to turn over potential exculpatory evidence to the court, The Oregonian reports.
The Bundys’ case ended in a mistrial Dec. 20 after Judge Gloria Navarro ruled that prosecutors violated the civil rights of the defendants by withholding evidence supporting the Bundys’ case. Navarro is considering dismissing the case ‘with prejudice’ and blocking prosecutors from retrying the case. Her decision will come Jan. 8, according to The New York Times.
‘There were approximately 3,000 pages that were provided to us only after we started trial,’ Bundy lawyer Bret D. Whipple told TheNYT. ‘I personally have never seen anything like this, especially in a case of such importance.’

Trump Says Mueller “Will Treat Him Fairly” But The “Russia Hoax Makes The Country Look Very Bad”

While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 29, 2017

As the Right continues to blast clear signs of FBI bias among various/most members of Mueller’s team (see here, here and here for just a few examples), the Left continues to simply ignore all signs of impropriety and instead threaten a “constitutional crisis” should Mueller be relieved of his duty.
Of course, while Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer love to appear on CNN and MSNBC to talk about Trump firing Mueller (it’s a great way to fire up their base after all), such a plan, at least if you believe the constant reassurances from the White House, continues to be nothing more than a figment of the Left’s imagination. In fact, sitting down with the New York Timesyesterday evening, Trump once again said he “thinks [Mueller] is going to be fair” but reiterated that the “Russia hoax” continues to “make the country look very bad.”
President Trump said Thursday that he believes Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel in the Russia investigation, will treat him fairly, contradicting some members of his party who have waged a weekslong campaign to try to discredit Mr. Mueller and the continuing inquiry.

Anarchy in the U.S.A.

Riots are unruly acts of civil unrest caused by an assembled group that result in violence against people and property.
Some riots start with an organized call to assemble that suddenly turns disorderly for any number of reasons. Some riots stem from a seemingly spontaneous outpouring of people onto the streets, though there are often signs of potential trouble for some time before it boils over into violence.
Once an organized march, for example, transforms into a violent and uncontrollable mob, another dynamic takes over. This is referred to as ‘herd mentality.’ A mob creates its own whirlpool and rapidly draws others into acting aggressive, rebellious or destructive.
Negative behavior is highly contagious. One person throws a garbage can through a plate glass window and it’s like dropping a match into a crate of ammunition: The situation explodes, others follow suit and a riot is born. There are no rules in a riot – it’s an example of humanity without laws when robbery, assault and manslaughter are committed openly.
Head up, Eyes Open
As I mentioned, civil unrest does not spring up overnight. In the age of instantaneous news coverage, topics that could cause massive civil disobedience are widely broadcast. Be alert to social issues that are creating a ripple of controversy in your community, especially ones that seem to stir up strong emotions. Don’t ignore bad news.
Although you may think it less stressful to focus on the latest happenings among celebrities or spend your time chatting electronically with friends, survival in the modern world requires a measure of due diligence.

Huma Abedin’s Cousin Convicted Of Fraud With “Russian Donald Trump”, Deleted Case Emails

Huma Abedin’s first cousin, Omar Amanat, 44 and an associate were convicted of Fraud on Tuesday for deceiving shareholders in their tech company by falsely inflating revenues. They face a 10 years in prison at his scheduled April 25th sentencing.
Notably, the jury was “not permitted to hear a recorded telephone conversation in which Amanat tells a government cooperator that his first cousin is Huma Abedin, a former aide to last year’s Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton,” according to the Associated Press. Amanat and his partners deceived shareholders of “Kit Digital” between 2010 and 2012, falsely inflating revenues to hide losses. During the trial Amanat introduced fabricated emails as evidence.
Ironically, court documents also reveal Amanat tried to destroy evidence before the trial – asking his brother over email to “delete all of my emails from the yahoo site,” over concern that they might be subpoenaed at some point.
“The evidence of their criminal schemes was so overwhelming that Amanat actually tried to fool the jury by introducing fake emails into the record as exculpatory ‘evidence’ in this trial,” said Acting Manhattan U. S. Attorney Joon H Kim, adding “Unfortunately for Tuzman and Amanat, the jury saw through their tangled web of lies, convicting them on all counts.”
Amanat was ordered immediately jailed by US District Court Judge Paul G. Gardephe after U. S. Attorney Andrea Griswold argued he was a flight risk, due to the “substantial” sentence likely to be handed down.

US Advising Soldiers to Be ‘Less Masculine’ as Military Tries to Curb Flood of Sexual Harassment Cases

21st Century Wire says…
While military forces are fighting one enemy in the theatre of combat, another multi-front culture war is also being fought within their institutions. According to a recent report in Military.com, US military lawyers have begun speaking about how sexual assault cases are flooding the military courts – threatening to break the back of the military’s legal system, and perhaps radically alter the institutional culture.
After the release of the documentary, ‘The Invisible War,’ the issue of sexual assault in the military has again been thrust into the national spotlight, claiming that 1 in 5 U. S. female veterans have sustained some form of sexual assault.
The issue of sexual assault in the US military first rose to national prominence in 1992 with the emergence of the infamous ‘Tailhook Scandal.’
One likely reason for this new spike in reported cases could be because each military service branch has recently implemented new ‘awareness programs’ as well as ‘sexual assault prevention’ campaigns – which actively encourage female troops to report anything they might feel constitutes sexual harassment or a constitutes a sexual assault.

China Tests Hypersonic Weapon, Rendering US THAAD Powerless

The art of (future) war is rapidly evolving with Beijing spearheading the push into the first modern operational hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV). According to The Diplomat, the weapon, known as the Dong Feng (‘East Wind’), DF-17 for short, is designed to challenge existing missile defense systems, such as America’s anti-ballistic missile defense system called: Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD).
An unnamed U. S. government source, who has studied recent intelligence reports on the People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force (PLARF), said China conducted two separate tests of the hypersonic missile back in November. The first test was conducted on November 01 and the second test took place on November 15. The Diplomat signals, that the November 01 test was the first Chinese ballistic missile launch to take place after the Communist Party of China’s 19th Party Congress in October.

Did Awans Cut A Deal? January Court Date Mysteriously Disappears From Docket

Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller pointed out a mysterious twist in the case of Pakistani national and long-time DNC IT contractor, Imran Awan – who was arrested in July at Dulles Airport while trying to flee the country after having wired nearly $300,000 to Pakistan.
Awan’s court date on four counts related to bank fraud, which had already been reschedule twice, has disappeared from the docket altogether:
***
Which begs the question – did Imran Awan cut a deal with Federal prosecutors?
Of note – Imran’s wife, Hina Alvi – who had fled to Pakistan in March with the Awan children, struck a deal with federal prosecutors in September to return to the U. S. and face charges. One wonders why Alvi would willingly leave the relative security of her family in Pakistan to face arraignment in the United States?
To briefly recap, our report from last week, the Awan family – which was employed by quite a number of House Democrats, had full access to highly sensitive Congressional computer systems, both on-site and remotely from Pakistan, with which they are suspected of committing a variety of crimes – including brokering classified information to hostile foreign governments.

North Korea’s Grandstanding And US Inaction Will Likely Continue In 2018

Authored by Duane Norman via Free Market Shooter blog,
2017 has seen President Trump’s administration make a marked departure in how North Korea is ‘handled’ by the United States.
***
Whereas past administrations were more predictable, waiting for North Korea to act bellicose before they acceded to relief from sanctions, the Trump administration has done no such thing, instead choosing to implement more sanctions on the North Korean regime following its weapons tests.

Bombshell Leaked Email Shows Senate Probe Can Extend To Anyone “Of Russian Descent”

The Young Turks Network (TYT), a popular progressive YouTube channel and news site, has obtained a bombshell internal email related to the Senate committee probing alleged Russian interference in the American political system, and though currently being covered in Russian media, mainstream US media is passing it over without comment.
The email reveals that the Senate committee has deemed anyone “of Russian nationality or Russian descent” relevant to its investigation, which means the Russiagate conspiracy theory and accompanying congressional investigation has officially jumped straight from neo-McCarthyism – smearing anyone that may have had contact with Russian government officials, diplomats or intelligence, and into xenophobia – eyeing any and all Russians or friends of Russians as a potential threat plain and simple, which is far down the slippery slope that many commentators have long predicted.

‘Insidious White Spaces’: Liberal Professors Claim That Farmers Markets Are Now Racist

Two liberal professors from San Diego State University are now claiming that the existence of farmers markets in urban areas, outside the control of corporations, is racist and normalizes the eating habits of white people.
Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J Bosco made the insane claims in a chapter of a new anthology released this month that ‘researches’ the correlation between how white a specific farmers market supposedly is and the gentrification in said area.
As Campus Reform notes, ‘The anthology, which features contributions from a variety of professors, aims to highlight the harms of ‘environmental gentrification,’ a process in which ‘environmental improvements lead to…the displacement of long-term residents.’
The Washington Times also reported on this hardcore liberal insanity:

The Jerusalem Decision: From Creative Chaos to Effective Turmoil

Did Donald J. Trump have any idea about the impact his words would have across the world?!? Did he have any idea that the whole wide world, including the United Nations, would turn against him?
On Wednesday, 6 December 2017, in the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room the President of the United States proceeded to make history, or, proceeded to leave his personal mark on the flow of world events as his words set a whole chain of global events in motion:
‘I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering.’
In his preamble to this potentially explosive and arguably rather disconcerting statement, Trump explained that ‘[i]n 1995, [under Bill Clinton’s watch, that is] Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize that that city – and so importantly – is Israel’s capital. This act passed Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago.’ In this way, the 45th U. S. President showed himself to have been cut from a completely different cloth indeed, as he uttered words that neither Bill Clinton, nor George W. Bush or, more importantly perhaps, Barack Obama had dared speak.
Yes, Trump openly came out and made plain the deep love that dare not speak its name – in spite of the vehemently pro-Israel stance taken by the U. S. ever since the time of President Eisenhower (1953-61) and particularly, ever since the Six Day War (5-10 June 1967), in spite of the ceaseless activities of AIPAC and J Street, no previous incumbent had dared bestow a bona fide U. S. Embassy to Jerusalem as a physical token of the deep and ardent bonds between the New World and the Promised Land. Only, Donald J. Trump had the gall to ‘deliver,’ doing what Clinton had promised yet none of his successors had been able to realise . . . until now, that is.

DHS Announces Program to ILLEGALLY Scan Our Faces And They’re Forcing Us To Pay For It

Both Congress and the Department of Homeland Security have never justified the biometric scanners at airports that could cost Americans $1 billion in 2018.
As TSA agents continue to prove their incompetence in the ‘War on Terror,’ the Department of Homeland Security is now allocating $1 billion in taxpayer funding to create a facial recognition program that will illegally scan Americans’ faces.
A study conducted by Georgetown Law’s Center for Privacy and Technology looked at the biometric scanners that are creating an inventory of the faces of individuals leaving the country at airports across the United States. While they are only at certain major airports right now, the full implementation of these scanners could cost Americans up to $1 billion.
The study noted that while the ‘9/11 Response and Biometric Exit Account’ created by Congress has the funds for the program, ‘neither Congress nor DHS has ever justified the need for the program.’
In addition to the fact that Congress has never provided a reason why the system is needed in the U. S., the study claimed that DHS has ‘repeatedly questioned ‘the additional value biometric air exit would provide’ compared with the status quo and the ‘overall value and cost of a biometric air exit capability,’ even as it has worked to build it.’
Not only is a government agency pouring $1 billion into a program to increase the country’s security measures even though it lacks full confidence, and has no evidence that the program it is implementing will do so, there is also the fact that the program requires Americans to give up their civil liberties, and it has never been explicitly authorized by the government. As the researchers from Georgetown Law noted:

‘THEY ARE STILL THE BIGGEST ALLIGATORS IN THE SWAMP’: CONGRESSMAN CALLS FOR ROBERT MUELLER TO BE FIRED FROM HIS SHAM RUSSIAN COLLUSION INVESTIGATION

A Republican Congressman from Florida has publicly called for special counsel Robert Mueller to be fired amid mounting evidence that the so-called ‘investigation’ into collusion between Trump and Russia is nothing more than a political hit job aimed at taking out the democratically elected president.
Congressman Matt Gaetz made the stunning comments during an appearance on Fox News in which he correctly noted that Mueller and his team are so biased that they are literally one step away from becoming the mainstream media themselves.
Fox News Host Ed Henry started the interview by asking Gaetz if he believed that there should be a ‘purge’ within the FBI after the plethora of evidence that points to the fact that high-level FBI agents were actively working to help their preferred presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
