Pressure to Promote Vindman?

by Daveda Gruber:

Do you remember Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman? Well, he’s back in the news.

On Thursday Senator Tammy Duckworth, D- Ill., announced that she plans to block Senate confirmations for 1,123 senior U.S. Armed Forces promotions. Why, you ask?

Duckworth wants Defense Secretary Mark Esper to confirm that he will not block the “expected and deserved” promotion of Vindman.

Vindman, who is an Iraq War veteran, was the Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council until he was reassigned on February 7, 2020.

He gained fame last year when he testified about the now famous July 2019 phone call between President Trump and President Volodymyr Zelensky. That call ultimately became the basis for the Democratic led impeachment inquiry.

Vindman testified that he listened to the July call and filed a whistleblower complaint over concerns that Trump allegedly tried to pressure Zelensky to investigate for Vice President and now presumed Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Hunter Biden served on the board of one of Ukraine’s largest natural gas companies, Burisma, from 2014 to 2019.

Trump was accused of using the holding back of military aid to Ukraine as leverage in his request to Zelensky.

After being acquitted of two articles of impeachment in the Senate, Trump removed Vindman from his position.

Duckworth was a helicopter pilot in the Iraq War. She accused Trump of trying to politicize the armed forces.

She said in a statement, “Our military is supposed to be the ultimate meritocracy. It is simply unprecedented and wrong for any Commander in Chief to meddle in routine military matters at all, whether or not he has a personal vendetta against a Soldier who did his patriotic duty and told the truth-a Soldier who has been recommended for promotion by his superiors because of his performance.”

Duckworth went on to say that she will back off her promise if Esper confirms in writing that he will not block Vindman’s promotion to Colonel.

I’ll never forget how proud Vindman was of his title as Lieutenant Colonel, as he insisted on being referred to.

I know that letting my emotions get into my writing factual material isn’t good but I personally would not like to see Vindman get promoted. As a matter of fact, I have a bad taste in my mouth from reporting on his testimony during the impeachment inquiry.

Here is Vindman’s opening statement in the impeachment inquiry.

Are Trump Haters Morons and Hypocrites?

by Daveda Gruber:

Where is the anger and the protests? No, not the ones we’ve seen in America lately.

This article is not the usual kind that I write but I am angry and I’d like to show you that I am not the only one who is angry.

What is the real story of slavery that is happening right now? Are you aware that there are slave markets in Libya, right now?

Why are there Concentration camps still around, today?

Did you know that Muslim women get raped all the time?

Are you a part of the LGBT movement? Why are you not upset that gay men are thrown off buildings? It happens, even today!

Here is a video you want to watch! Pay attention people because Democratic hatred for President Trump is focused in the wrong direction.

It appears that some people think and believe that Trump haters are morons and hypocrites.

Harbir Nain was born in Chandigarh, India and now lives in New Delhi, India an he has quite a few videos on his YouTube Channel. He had his Twitter account suspended, most likely, for the content in these videos.

We should all pay attention to what is happening in the rest of the world and who made it happen and why it is the way it is.

He mentions some names which I am sure you will know.

Biden Accuses Trump of Dereliction of Duty

by Daveda Gruber:

After quite some time in his basement in Delaware, Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, had his first press conference in close to three months on Tuesday.

Needless to say, Biden didn’t have anything nice to say about President Trump and his response to the reports from the New York Times that Russian intelligence operatives offered to pay bounties to Taliban linked militants who killed U.S. troops that are stationed in Afghanistan.

Trump has adamantly denied that he was briefed on any such matter before the New York Times article came out.

Biden was taking questions from reporters when he said, “The idea that somehow he didn’t know is a dereliction of duty if that’s the case. And if he was briefed and he didn’t do anything about it that is a dereliction of duty.”

Besides the report from the New York Times, the Washington Post seemed to jump on the bandwagon and reported that the Russian bounties are “believed to have resulted in the deaths of several U.S. service members.”

Further reports from the Associated Press alleged that officials said an April 2019 attack on an American convoy that killed three Marines in Afghanistan is under investigation.

Trump tweeted this on Monday:

This tweet came from Trump on Sunday.

John Bolton, who was national security adviser until he was fired recently, also allegedly told colleagues at the time that he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019.

According to officials who allegedly leaked the information to the New York Times, the evaluation concerning Russians and bounties to kill American military was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time.

So we have information from unnamed sources who reportedly told mainstream media, or as I like to call them, “Fake News” and Bolton, the man who is trying to get rich off of a book that he put out to smear Trump.

On Tuesday Biden said that it was unimaginable that Trump would not have known about the intelligence, and called into question the president’s cognitive abilities.

The former Vice President went on to say, “The president talks about cognitive capability, but he is not cognitively aware of what’s going on.”

Biden also called on Congress to investigate the matter and, come Election Day, “for the public to decide whether he is fit for office.”

Now, that’s Biden questioning Trump’s cognitive capability.

I’m not sure what my readers have seen of Biden speaking, or rather trying to speak, but I can tell you that Trump has all his marbles but from what I’ve seen, Biden doesn’t.

Biden was better off hiding in his basement but then we wouldn’t get to see his cognitive capability on full display.

Did Russians Put a Bounty on U.S. Military in Afghanistan?

by Daveda Gruber:

Late on Monday the Defense Department claimed that there is no corroborating evidence that supports what the New York Times reported about Russian military offering bounties to the Taliban linked militants in Afghanistan to kill U.S. troops.

President Trump has denied any knowledge of the situation that the Times reported.

A statement from the Pentagon was put out.

Jonathan  Hoffman, the chief Pentagon spokesman, said in that statement, “To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports. Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan—and around the world—most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats.”

The New York Times did not name its sources but they are allegedly officials.

The unnamed people allegedly gave information that some “Islamist militants” or “criminal elements” collected payouts.

The report went on to say that that 20 Americans were killed there in 2019 but the article didn’t articulate if the bounty had been involved in any of the deaths.

In a statement from the national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, he wrote that the allegations in the report were not verified by the intelligence community and that is the reason that Trump was not briefed on the matter.

He said, “Nevertheless, the administration, including the National Security Council staff, have been preparing should the situation warrant action.”

O’Brien noted that Trump’s top priority is the security of Americans and the safety of the men and women who serve in the military.

A briefing was led by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and O’Brien, were Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX., who is  the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Representative Adam Kinzinger, R-IL.,

McCaul and Kinzinger said in a statement that lawmakers were told “there is an ongoing review to determine the accuracy of these reports.”

In the statement they said, “If the intelligence review process verifies the reports, we strongly encourage the Administration to take swift and serious action to hold the Putin regime accountable.”

Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also gave a statement which she said, “This does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story erroneously suggesting that President Trump was briefed on this matter.”

She reiterated that the White House has maintained that neither Trump nor Vice President Mike Pence was briefed on such intelligence.

It has been reported that Trump has now been briefed but that briefing took place after the New York Times reported on unverified intelligence.

But the White House is still insisting that Trump has not been briefed yet.

Why the discrepancy? Could the information have been completely made up?

On Tuesday, top Democrats in the House visited the White House for a briefing on the alleged bounties.

The delegation was led by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md,. and also included Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., and others.

On Monday, Hoyer had demanded a briefing for all House members on the matter.

A think tank, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ senior fellow, Thomas Joscelyn, allegedly told the Wall Street Journal that “Moscow’s willingness to embrace the Taliban openly and publicly dates back several years.” He also said that would not be surprised if there is truth to the report.

If there is truth to the report? The report has not been verified or substantiated by the Intelligence Community.

What if there is no truth to the report? Could the New York Times have just made up the story?

The mainstream media is in a very sad state of affairs if we have to question big news sources that we have trusted for years. But then, that’s why we all use the term “Fake News” so freely.

Defund Police for Muslim Rule in Minneapolis?

by Daveda Gruber:

Addressing the elephant in the room on Tuesday, Representative Steve Green R-MN., said that Antifa and Muslim organizations plan to “police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.”

Two weeks ago the Minneapolis City Council voted to abolish the city’s police force. So what does the city have in mind to replace current law enforcement?

Green has stated, “What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul.”

Green went on to say that Antifa and Muslim organizations plan to “police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.”

The New York Times reported that “many have called for relying more on self-policing by the community, in the way attendees often do at events like music festivals, with the police stepping in only when a true emergency arises. Some cited as an example how, in the days after the killing of Mr. Floyd, teams made up of dozens of members of the American Indian Movement patrolled streets and directed traffic in the Little Earth housing community in Minneapolis.”

In 2016 Minneapolis Muslims in man-on-the-street interviews openly say that they preferred Islamic law over American law.

Sharia patrols are common in Germany, Britain, and even New York City.

In New York City there is a Muslim Community Patrol (MCP). They wear uniforms that closely resemble New York Police Department uniforms. They also drive cars that appear, at a glance, to look like NYPD cars.

They enforce the “fundamentals of the Sharia.”

Siraj Wahhaj, who is a Muslim leader said, “The mosques need protection and the MCP cars can help stop people who were not following the rules and regulations of the sharia, doing what they’re not supposed to be doing, but still doing it.”

A Muslim man with the MCP said, “Muslim women being out after dark, Muslim men hanging out in the corners doing dope, Muslims drinking liquor,” and enforcing, “basically, the fundamentals of the Sharia.”

If Muslims patrols are initiated in Minneapolis, they would probably perform in the same manner.

Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar’s 5th Congressional District is the jihad terror recruitment capital of the United States. Sharia law promotes waging war against and subjugate unbelievers so, it isn’t likely to be a priority to stop young Muslim men who engage in jihad activities.

Islam historically has never had any difficulty coexisting with authoritarian governments and can coexist with Antifa enforcers.

Minnesota state Democratic Representative, Mohamud Noor of Minneapolis, didn’t repute Green’s statements.

Noor has said that rather than talk about things that inflame people and create division, Minnesota needs to address the challenge before it.

He said, “Talk of Antifa/Islamic rule in Minneapolis might “inflame people,” so keep quiet. Keep quiet, that is, if you oppose such an eventuality, not if you favor it.”

Noor went on to say, “Minnesota is awake. They understand the challenges; they have been hearing the challenges for far too long. And we can’t wait any longer.”

Green seems to have hit the nail on the head and it appears that things are moving along in the direction he has stated.

How many Democratic cities will eventually have Muslim policing? How long will it take before the Muslim policing increases and infiltrates the Christian and Jewish communities?

Folks, the numbers of Muslims in America has grown. The numbers of Muslims in government is staggering.

I wrote an article that names all the Muslim members in U.S. government.

Here is the link if you are interested in seeing:

The Islamification of America

I call on all Conservative Americans to vote in droves on November 3rd. Vote for Republican candidates. Vote out the Democrats and Muslims.

Vote RED down the line and save American values.

Stay free! Keep America Great! #Trump2020!

What Did Biden Cancer Nonprofit Spend Millions On?

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President and the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden has a cancer charity called the Biden Cancer Initiative and not very much money goes toward eradicating cancer.

The nonprofit organization, which was founded in 2017, spent close to two thirds of the money it has raised toward staff compensation and six-figure salaries for top executives.

Biden created several nonprofits after his Vice Presidency ended. Salaries encompass nearly 65 percent of its total expenditures.

Charity watchdogs recommend that nonprofits spend 25 percent on administrative overhead and fundraising costs combined.

Biden charities spend far more than what is recommended.

Tax forms from 2017 and 2018 show that the Biden Cancer Initiative raised and then spent $4,8 million. More than $3 million of that amount went to salaries, compensation, and benefits.

A mere $1.7 million was spent on all of its other expenses of which $740,000 went to conferences, conventions and meetings.

Charity Navigator, which does analysis of nonprofits, rates charities for effectiveness. They found that mid-to-large-sized nonprofits paid their chief executives an average salary of $126,000 per year. They rate charities well that spend at least 75% of their expenses directly on their programs.

The Biden Cancer Initiative paid its president, Greg Simon, $224,539 in 2017 and $429,850 in 2018.

Put all the number together and eyebrows get raised. Has the Biden cancer charity let associates profit off their access to him?

His cancer charity sure didn’t cure cancer nor did it cut a single grant to any other group or foundation during the two years but some people made rather large salaries.

Do New Strzok Notes Given to Flynn Lawyer Exonerate Flynn?

by Daveda Gruber:

Former fired FBI agent Peter Strzok penned notes and they have been turned over to Sydney Powell and the legal team of General Michael Flynn.

The former national security adviser, Flynn, is still involved and his freedom at stake in the ongoing case against him.

FOX News claims that Powell has stated that the documents further exonerate Flynn.

A notice of discovery correspondence between acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Tuesday, along with a letter from Sherwin to Powell and Flynn attorney Jesse Binnall was obtained by FOX News.

According to FOX News, Sherwin and assistant U.S. Attorney Jocelyn Ballantine wrote, “As we have previously disclosed, beginning in January 2020, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri [EDMO] has been conducting a review of the Michael T. Flynn investigation. The enclosed document was obtained and analyzed by USA EDMO during the course of its review.”

They went on to write, “This page of notes was taken by former Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok. While the page itself is undated; we believe that the notes were taken in early January 2017, possibly between January 3 and January 5. These materials are covered by the Protective Order entered by the Court on February 21, 2018; additional documents may be forthcoming.”

The contents of the documents could not be disclosed because of a protective order but there are two hand written pages and they are heavily redacted.

Justice Department (DOJ) and Flynn’s lawyers continue to fight to try to get the case against him dismissed before a judge who is considering it.

Last month the Justice Department made a move to drop its case against Flynn. that decision was made after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case. That included newly discovered and disclosed information pertaining to the case.

DOJ officials have said that they concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was not tethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Flynn.

It is also alleged that the interview was conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.

On January 22, 2017, Flynn was sworn in as the National Security Advisor.

On February 13, 2017, he resigned after information surfaced that he had misled the FBI and Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and content of his communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

On May 22, 2017, Flynn rejects an order to hand over documents.

Invoking his right against self-incrimination, Flynn declined to comply with a Senate subpoena of emails and other records related to any dealings with Russians, as part of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election

Flynn enters a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Then between December 1, 2017 and December 4, 2018, Flynn participates in nineteen interviews with lawyers from the special counsel’s office or the Department of Justice.

That leads to injustice at its peak in the prosecution of Flynn.

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen said in a statement last month, “Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case. I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

The case still rests with the federal judge who is overseeing the case. That judge would have to make the final determination to dismiss it.

The wheels of justice move rather slowly.

Through investigating on my own, I’ve come to determine that Flynn was set up by the FBI.

It is difficult to imagine what Flynn and his family have gone through since certain people within the FBI sunk their viscous teeth into the General  who had a distinguished 33-year Army career that included top-level intelligence posts and promotion to the rank of three-star general.

I pray this new evidence, now fully reviewed by Powell, has some information that will lead to the exoneration of Flynn once and for all.

Schiff Shifts on Los Angeles DA

by Daveda Gruber:

The District Attorney of Los Angeles, Jackie Lacey, is seeking a third term in office and Representative Adam Schiff D-Calif., had endorsed her a year ago.

Things have apparently shifted in Schiff’s mind because a progressive challenger has emerged during this time when law enforcement is dealing with criticism.

Schiff tweeted this:

California Assembly-Member, Laura Friedman, tweeted this:

The first black female district attorney in Los Angeles history stated to news outlets that she is proud of her work against racism criminal justice reform.

Lacey told newspaper reporters, “As the first African-American woman to hold the LA County D.A.’s office, I am proud of my record of taking on systemic racism and reforming criminal justice — from bail reform, to reducing juvenile cases by nearly 50 percent, to increasing our office’s focus on mental health treatment instead of incarceration. I am singularly focused on doing the work of the people of LA County during this time of crisis.”

It has been reported that that the same day that Schiff made his announcement protestors congregated outside Lacey’s home.

The protestors urged Lacey to file charges against the police officers who fatally shot Alex Flores and Daniel Hernandez. The shooting occurred in separate incidents in 2019 and 2020.

It appears that it did not help matters when Lacy apologized for the incident that her husband, David Lacy, had allegedly pointed a gun at approximately fifty Black Lives Matter protestors who were on their property and threatened to shoot them.

Bret Baier to Interview John Bolton

by Daveda Gruber:

How many of you watch FOX News? Will you tune in on Tuesday, June 23rd, at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Standard time? Chief political anchor Bret Baier is set to interview former National Security Adviser John Bolton.

The FOX News show, “Special Report” may have a lot of viewers because people are curious enough to tune in.

The interview falls on the day that Bolton’s book/memoir, “The Room Where It Happened,” should be hitting book stores.

The book is expected to be quite controversial. Most of us have heard that Bolton’s book contain a passage that says that President Trump once said that reporters “should be executed.”

Other controversial things include that Trump requested that his White House counsel contact the Justice Department to discuss whether jailing journalists would be possible.

An emergency injunction is being sought at this moment to prevent the release/publication of the book in question because the manuscript contains confidential information.

Claims have been made that Bolton had deliberately bypassed the necessary classification review process.

Trump tweeted out his thoughts on the matter:

Trump also re-tweeted Daniel (Dan) Scavino, who is an American political advisor, currently serving as the White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications and Director of Social Media, who tweeted this:

FOX may have high rating for the upcoming segment, but then their ratings are already higher than other cable networks.

Liberal Groups Warn Biden He Could Lose Election

by Daveda Gruber:

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee will receive a letter that was signed on Monday by over fifty left-leaning groups.

The groups feel that Biden’s response to the protests over the death of George Floyd were “far from sufficient” and that his past performance in the Senate needed to be addressed.

The letter, which was reported by The New York Post, states, “As a Senator, you not only supported but in many cases authored and championed laws that expanded mass incarceration, increased police powers, and exacerbated racial disparities in surveillance and sentencing. These laws broke apart Black communities and robbed many young Black people of a future. They are a part of the history that has led us to this moment, and their ongoing fallout has contributed to the outpourings of grief and anger we are seeing today.”

The letter goes on to condemn Biden’s present campaign commitment to add $300 million in funding for community policing programs. It also says that Biden’s campaign stance described as a Harding-like “return to normalcy” is insufficient.

The letter states that Biden cannot win the election without the enthusiasm of Black voters.

You can see the entire letter here:

Besides the Black vote becoming more of a challenge, Biden is constantly ridiculed for his gaffs, and there are many.

Within his own party, Biden faces more Progressive members whom have called for aggressive anti-police measures. They want defunding, or even abolishing, police forces.

The broader electorate disagree with radical measures.

Biden has called on Congress to pass a law banning the use of chokeholds by police. He would also like to see a stop to giving police forces military weapons.

The former Vice President would like to create a model “use of force” standard and to improve oversight and accountability of police forces.

In a recent USA Today op-ed, Biden said, “While I do not believe federal dollars should go to police departments violating people’s rights or turning to violence as the first resort, I do not support defunding police. The better answer is to give police departments the resources they need to implement meaningful reforms, and to condition other federal dollars on completing those reforms.”

It appears Biden has a deep hole that he has to climb out of because his presumptive voters are not all in agreement with all of his polices and beliefs.

One can imagine Biden clawing out of the basement and peeking around to see if everything was safe, comes to mind.

November is not that far away but I wouldn’t be looking forward to the debates with President Trump that will precede the presidential election, if I were Biden.
