Osama Bin Laden’s Son Hamza Dead

by Daveda Gruber:

A strong message has been sent to terrorist groups who would target the US. President Trump has confirmed that Hamza bin Laden is dead.

Hamza is the son of the mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks and former Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Hamza was also a high-ranking Al Qaeda member who had been groomed for terrorism since childhood.

The younger bin Laden was believed to be in his early 30s at the time of his death. He was married to the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker in the September 11 attacks.

According to a statement given by the White House on Saturday, Hamza was killed in a United States counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region.

This comes about three days after the 18th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.

The statement read, “The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives Al Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father but undermines important operational activities of the group.  Hamza bin Laden was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups.”

Hamza’s death was reported on July 31st but skepticism surrounded the report. Terrorist leaders are reported to have died and then they resurface later making it difficult for people to believe reports of their deaths.

Osama bin Laden, along with others, plotted the September 11, 2001 attacks on American soil. The elder bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs in a raid on a house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in 2011.

The father and his favorite son are now together in death.

Did Obama Help Trump Properties?

by Daveda Gruber:

The U.S. Air Force refueled at a Scottish airport near President Trump’s Turnberry golf resort and Democrats on the House Oversight committee appeared to have lost their minds over the stop.

The Air Force was asked to explain the stopover that happened in March.

The House Oversight Committee decided to investigate and wrote to Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan. The Democrats felt that it was an alleged conflict of interest by President Trump.

Trump claimed to know nothing about the stopover and the details of his resort. In fact, Trump said that he had “nothing to do” with the stops.

The Democrats didn’t take Trump’s word for it.

It was reported that the Air Force crews stayed at Trump’s Scottish resort up to 40 times since 2015.

While investigating Trump’s ties to this conflict of interest, it was determined that the deal between The U.S. Air Force and the resort allegedly took place under the Obama administration.

The investigation revealed that the contract with the Prestwick Airport was signed during the Obama administration and that the airport was sending visiting crews to Trump’s course before he ran for president.

A statement from an Air Force official said, “We reviewed the vast majority of the 659 overnight stays of Air Force crews in the vicinity at Glasgow Prestwick Airport between 2015 and 2019. Approximately six percent of those crews stayed at the Trump Turnberry. As a practice, we generally send aircrews to the closest, most suitable accommodations within the government hotel rate. The review also indicated that about 75 percent of the crews stayed in the immediate vicinity of the airfield and 18 percent stayed in Glasgow.”

The deal between the Air Force and the resort involved the Air Force paying a discounted rate of as little as $130 a night, which compared with a typical rate of more than $300 a night elsewhere. Trump’s resort was one of 13 hotels booked by the airport, and is approximately 40 minutes away from the airport.

The Democrats, with Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. at the helm, are out to get Trump on anything that they can possibly find even it turns out that former President Barack Obama and his administration were the actual makers of the deal.

Is “Andy” McCabe Going Down?

by Daveda Gruber:

The Justice department has allegedly rejected a desperate appeal from former deputy and acting director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe.

Allegedly, it has been recommended by U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu that McCabe appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen who is the deputy attorney general.

Potential charges of the former top FBI official relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.

McCabe’s legal team has said that they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”

McCabe was recently hired by CNN as a commentator and paid for his service. He had previously spent twenty-one years working for the FBI.

McCabe became the acting FBI director in May 2017 after President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in March 2018. The IG had found McCabe had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Wall Street Journal. This was in regard to an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe sued the FBI and the Justice Department over being fired. He argued it was part of Trump’s plan to rid the bureau of leaders he perceived as disloyal to him.

McCabe argued in his complaint that FBI Director Chris Wray and Sessions, the two officials responsible for demoting and then firing him, created an excuse to force him out, which was in agreement with the president’s wishes.

The reason given for McCabe’s being fired was that he had misled investigators over his involvement in a news media leak.

McCabe has denied any wrongdoing and says that the real reason for his firing was “his refusal to pledge allegiance to a single man.”

I’ve told people on Twitter, who have asked me, who I thought would be indicted. I’ve always answered, “Andy.”

Come on folks, someone big had to go down, right? McCabe is a big fish to fry but others may get a free pass.

Will Flynn Case be Dismissed?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Tuesday General Michael Flynn’s legal team has indicated that they are seeking to have the case against Flynn thrown out of court.

The former national security advisor’s relatively new legal team is accusing the prosecution of “egregious conduct and suppression” of possibly exculpatory evidence.

Fynn’s legal team headed by defense attorney, Sidney Powell, in a status conference in federal court in Washington, said, “There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had disclosed Brady information about what it knew before the plea agreement.”

The Supreme Court case of Brady vs. Maryland established the government’s obligation to turn over all exculpatory evidence. Flynn lawyers have issued a complaint that references that case.

There have been months of delays in the Flynn case. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan indicated he would like to set a tentative sentencing date of December 18th.

Powell said, “There is far more at stake here than sentencing. There were stunning failures to produce Brady material, going back to July of 2017.”

Prosecutors have strongly rejected that contention and have said that “the government has exceeded its discovery and disclosure obligations in this matter.” That includes providing Flynn with more than 22,000 pages of documents.

In 2017 Flynn pleaded guilty to providing false statements to the FBI during an interview about his contacts with the former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

The entire case against Flynn was a part of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Powell has accused the Justice Department of withholding documents critical to Flynn’s defense. Powell is demanding access to classified materials she maintains the government has blocked them from viewing.

Included in the documents that have been denied to Flynn’s legal team are FBI documents surrounding the actions of Bruce Ohr, who is a former high-ranking official at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Ohr had multiple contacts with the author of the infamous Trump dossier, Christopher Steele.

Powell has alleged that there is an internal DOJ memo that “exonerates” Flynn from being a Russian agent. The prosecution allegedly had this information in their possession and failed to disclose this information before Flynn signed his plea deal.

For now, Powell disclosed that Flynn doesn’t plan to withdraw from the plea deal.

Powell said, “There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had disclosed Brady information about what it knew before the plea agreement”

Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack has a different take on it. He argued that the charge Flynn pleaded guilty to was lying about his contacts with the Russian government, not of being a Russian agent.

Flynn was never charged with being a Russian agent.

The defense team for Flynn wants all the documents surrounding the FBI’s interview of Flynn.

Flynn’s defense team also wants all the documents surrounding the FBI’s interview of Flynn. Prosecutors stated that they have already turned all those documents over to Flynn’s team before the plea deal.

Powell claims that there is another document that hasn’t been released.

Powell said, “It would be in the FBI computer system.”

It is also alleged that there is evidence that Flynn passed a polygraph test.

Powell said, “There is just a plethora of information out there that we need the actual documents to support and the notes to support.”

In court documents Powell has compared the government’s conduct toward Flynn to the case of former Alaska Senator, Ted Stevens.

That case ended with U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is the same judge in the Flynn case, finding prosecutorial misconduct.

A year ago, government prosecutors said that they would ask Sullivan to spare Flynn any jail time because of his “extensive cooperation” in the Mueller investigation.

Will Flynn go free? Do you stand with General Flynn? I hope so because I stand with Flynn.

The man is an American hero who has been put through a grinder because people involved in the Russian probe were biased to the extreme that they hated President Trump and were desperate to find a way to destroy a legally elected president of the US.

Now we wait. A court hearing on “Brady” material is set for October 31st.

Donald Hump – a Biden Freudian Slip?

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President Joe Biden was using a line he likes to spew on the campaign trail.

While in Manchester, New Hampshire, at the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s annual convention, Biden took jabs at President Trump.

Biden said, “We cannot and I will not let this man be re-elected president of the United States. Limited to four years, I believe history will look at the presidency as an aberrate moment in time.”

Biden continued and put emphases on the Freudian slip,  “If Donald Hump, Donald Trump, Freudian slip.”

The crowd of Democrats cheered as Biden corrected himself and repeated the line, saying “if Donald Trump is re-elected, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.”

It is no secret that Biden would love to beat the man who occupies the White House, President Trump.

Biden has made electability one of his top selling points as he scuffles in the crowded Democratic group of challengers for the nomination. He spent much of his address to the New Hampshire audience targeting Trump.

To the pleasure of the Democrat audience, Biden repeated a line he likes to use in saying that Trump “lacks the moral authority to lead”.

He went on to say, “This president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.”

There it is folks, Biden speaking, in a nut shell.

Is Biden Suffering Brain Damage?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Wednesday former Vice President Joe Biden’s eye appeared red with blood during a climate change town hall hosted by CNN.

During this evening event, people took to social media to spread the images.

This bloodshot eye brought to light questions about Biden’s health.

A doctor who viewed the eye images, Dr. Danielle Strauss, a board-certified ophthalmologist practicing in New York and New Jersey, said “Mr. Biden appeared to develop a subconjunctival hemorrhage. This is a common and harmless condition which can develop after coughing, sneezing or straining, and is more common in elderly people on blood thinners.”

Dr. Danielle Strauss  continued, “People who develop this may not notice it until they look in the mirror or until someone else points it out.”

Now, that’s all well and good but the doctor did not examine the 76 year old Biden.

The former VP’s health issues didn’t start on Wednesday evening.

He suffered from two brain aneurysms in 1988.

Biden’s mental health has been questioned, as well, as of late.

Dr. Neal Kassell, who treated Biden for the aforementioned brain aneurysms, maintains that Biden’s brain is intact and functioning and that he has no brain damage from the hemorrhage or the operations.

I tend not to believe everything that I am told. Frankly, I just don’t believe everything that is said by others.

If Biden has any alleged health issues, those issues would be kept quiet at this time.

Is San Francisco Gunning for the NRA?

by Daveda Gruber:

A resolution was passed on Tuesday by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors proclaiming the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization.”

The resolution was passed on Tuesday and urged the federal government to do like-wise.

Democrats have put gun control and the NRA in the spotlight after several mass shootings that have taken place as of late.

The resolution cites that the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” accuses the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.”

The resolution goes on to say, “All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence.”

The City and County of San Francisco are urging limiting businesses relationships with the NRA.

Those who do business with the city and have done business with the NRA are in the crossfire.

The resolution says, “The City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.”

The resolution’s author wrote the text after the July mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting that left three people dead.

Beto O’Rourke is in favor of a gun by-back program. Some cities, such as Baltimore, Boston and Los Angeles, have had buyback programs in the past. This is the first time the issue has impacted as a federal proposal.

O’Rourke tweeted this:

When responding, the NRA called the resolution a stunt that was a distraction to not keep the city’s other problems in the spotlight.

The problems in San Francisco are the homelessness and filth on the streets.

San Francisco has a problem with rats, lice and disease from the defecation on its streets. Also, there is drug abuse and petty crime which has risen as of late.

Senator Ted Cruz tweeted this out to Lori Lightfoot, Mayor of Chicago:

The NRA will continue working to protect the 2nd Amendment along with the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.

Are Dems at War with Religious Americans?

by Daveda Gruber:

On Saturday the Democratic National Committee passed a resolution which commended the values of “religiously unaffiliated” Americans.

The DNC praised Americans who have no religious affiliations as the largest religious group within their own party.

The resolution was unanimously passed by the Democratic Party at their summer meeting on August 24, 2019. The event was held in San Francisco, California.

The Secular Coalition of America, which lobbies on behalf of atheists, agnostics, and humanists on public policy was thrilled by the DNC’s move. This was the first time that a major party “embraced American nonbelievers.”

The resolution states that “religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values” and adds that they should support “rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values.”

This is the resolution that I am referring to:

The director of governmental affairs for the Secular Coalition of America, Sarah Levin, cited that it will ensure that policy is driven by science and evidence and not sectarian beliefs.

The Democratic Party announced it is targeting “nonreligious voters” to try to beat President Trump. As we are all aware, President Trump locked in the evangelical vote in 2016.

The DNC has heightened their expression on religious groups.

Levin stated that “America was founded as a secular government charged with representing and protecting the freedoms of people of all faiths and none. I am proud to see the Democratic Party take that to heart by bringing secular Americans into the fold.”

It appears that the Democrats have a problem with God. In their efforts to solve the problem, we go back to the 2012 election. At the DNC convention Democrats booed God.

In 2016, a preacher was heckled during the opening prayer. Also, on Saturday, Democrats took a swipe at believers who use “religious liberty” to threaten the civil rights of LGBTQ Americans.

The DNC would like to see every party at every level of government adopt similar resolutions.

We cannot let this happen. As far as I am concerned, to take God out of America would be a big mistake.

What say you? Should we keep God or reject God?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Treated for Malignant Pancreatic Tumor

by Daveda Gruber:

It was announced on Friday that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is allegedly feeling good and getting better after three weeks of radiation therapy for a tumor on her pancreas.

Ginsburg is reported to have had a malignant tumor on her pancreas that was successfully treated.

A court spokesperson said in a statement, “The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time.”

This past July, the Supreme Court Justice had a routine blood test and an abnormality appeared. A biopsy was done and it revealed the tumor.

Radiation treatment for Ginsburg started on August 5th at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. The treatment was said to have been done with Bader Ginsburg being an outpatient.

Ginsburg is 86 years old and is said to have tolerated the treatment well. A bile duct stent was placed on her pancreas.

The statement also said, “The Justice tolerated treatment well. She canceled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule.”

Ginsburg has made it clear that she has no intention of stepping down from the bench. She plans to hold her seat for as long as her health permits.

Ginsburg has had her fair share of ill health. She had surgery cancer surgery in December. She had colorectal cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009.

Justices usually return to work in September to begin the new Supreme Court term, which will begin on October 7th. I’ll be interested to see who shows up for work.
