Nation of Islam Preacher Blames ‘WICKED JEWS’ for Attacks on Women’s March Leaders

Nation of Islam’s anti-Semitic leader, Louis Farrakhan, used his annual “Savior’s Day” speech to defend Women’s March leaders who forged a close relationship with his group, blaming the “wicked Jews” for driving a wedge between the Women’s March and leftist organizers, and for trying to “break up the women’s movement.”

The Nation of Islam hosted its annual national conference, Savior’s Day, at the United Center in Chicago over the weekend, and anti-Semitism was a priority among attendees. Speakers tore into the Jewish people, accusing them of everything from owning the Federal Reserve to instituting sharecropping to inventing pedophilia.

But Farrakhan reserved some of his sharpest anti-Semitic criticism for defending Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory and her colleagues, whom he claims are victims of a conspiracy.

“The most beautiful sight that I could lay eyes on [was] when I saw, the day after Trump was elected, women from all over the world were standing in solidarity, and a black woman is the initiator of it,” Farrakhan said about Mallory in his speech as a photo of Mallory popped up on the United Center’s scoreboard.

“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” added Farrakhan. “It ain’t about Farrakhan; it’s about women all over the world [who] have the power to change the world.” (Read more from “Nation of Islam Preacher Blames ‘WICKED JEWS’ for Attacks on Women’s March Leaders” HERE)

Celebrities Who Blamed Trump for Fake Attack on Jussie Smollett

By Breitbart. Left-wing Hollywood wasted no time in politicizing and blaming President Donald Trump and his supporters for an alleged hate crime attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett — an encounter that police now reportedly believe to have been staged. . .

Smollett had previously claimed that at 2am in downtown Chicago, he was attacked by two men, had a rope wrapped around his neck, and chemicals thrown on him and claimed he was called racial and homophobic slurs. He also said that the attackers yelled “This is MAGA country!” at him.

Left-wing Hollywood, of course, used the alleged attack to cast blame on President Trump and the United States in general.

Empire co-creator Lee Daniels said, “We have to love each other regardless of what sexual orientation we are because it shows we are united on a united front and no racist fuck can come in and do the things that they did to you.”

Jussie Smollett angrily denies complicity in attack

By Boston Herald. Attorneys for “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett issued a statement Saturday denying that he orchestrated his Jan. 29 assault, and saying he is “angered” and “devastated” by recent developments in the case.

Chicago police want to interview Smollett, after learning new evidence from two Nigerian brothers who were released on Friday night. Local media outlets have reported that the brothers admitted to police that Smollett paid them to carry out the attack. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi issued a statement earlier Saturday saying that the new evidence “shifted the trajectory of the investigation.”

Smollett’s attorneys denied that he was involved, saying “Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.”

Smollett told police on Jan. 29 that two men had attacked him, poured bleach on him, put a rope around his neck, and used racial and homophobic slurs. Police scoured hundreds of hours of surveillance video in search of clues in the case, eventually tracking down the two brothers on Wednesday night.

Presidential Hopeful Biden Trashes America While in Europe

Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted President Donald Trump in everything but name at a defense summit, as he declared America “an embarrassment” before European allies.

Biden, in an extended apology that prompted loud applause from the delegates at the NATO Munich Security Conference Saturday, suggested the United States had abandoned its bedrock principles and commitment to Europe, the Washington Examiner reports.

Violating a decades-old tradition of leaving politics at home when addressing foreign nationals, the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate spent much of his speech suggesting America had violated its commitment to “human decency” and other cornerstones of democracy. Biden has said that he wishes to restore “civility” and “respect” to American politics.

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” Biden asserted. “The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

Biden said: “While I cannot speak today as an elected government official who is able to set policy, I can speak as a citizen. I can offer insight into my country. I know we’ve heard a lot today about leadership, but in my experience, leadership only exists if somebody — and others — are with you. Leadership in the absence of people who are with you is not leadership.” (Read more from “Presidential Hopeful Biden Trashes America While in Europe” HERE)

Former Top FBI Lawyer: 2 Trump Cabinet Officials Were ‘Ready to Support’ 25th Amendment Effort

Former top FBI lawyer James Baker, in closed-door testimony to Congress, detailed alleged discussions among senior officials at the Justice Department about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office, claiming he was told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said two Trump Cabinet officials were “ready to support” such an effort.

The testimony was delivered last fall to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Fox News has confirmed portions of the transcript. It provides additional insight into discussions that have returned to the spotlight in Washington as fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe revisits the matter during interviews promoting his forthcoming book.

Baker did not identify the two Cabinet officials. But in his testimony, the lawyer said McCabe and FBI lawyer Lisa Page came to him to relay their conversations with Rosenstein, including discussions of the 25th Amendment.

“I was being told by some combination of Andy McCabe and Lisa Page, that, in a conversation with the Deputy Attorney General, he had stated that he — this was what was related to me — that he had at least two members of the president’s Cabinet who were ready to support, I guess you would call it, an action under the 25th Amendment,” Baker told the committees. . .

In his testimony, Baker said of McCabe’s state of mind: “At this point in time, Andy was unbelievably focused and unbelievably confident and squared away. I don’t know how to describe it other than I was extremely proud to be around him at that point in time because I thought he was doing an excellent job at maintaining focus and dealing with a very uncertain and difficult situation. So I think he was in a good state of mind at this point in time.” (Read more from “Former Top FBI Lawyer: 2 Trump Cabinet Officials Were ‘Ready to Support’ 25th Amendment Effort” HERE)

Donald Trump Jr. Levels Jussie Smollett Over Allegations He Orchestrated Attack

By Daily Wire. Donald Trump Jr. slammed actor Jussie Smollett over the weekend after news reports surfaced alleging that Smollett had orchestrated the January incident, in which he claimed he was attacked, on himself.

Multiple news publications reported late on Saturday that law enforcement officials said they believed that Smollett had paid two Nigerian brothers to conduct the attack.

In response to the recent developments, Trump Jr. rattled off a series of tweets going after Smollett and the media for promoting the story.

“Shocked, I really thought MAGA folks (who are all over downtown Chicago) were waiting with a rope/bottle of bleach to ambush a righ guy at 2am in minus 4 degrees because those are conditions where all people go out for Subway rather than order Seamless,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “Seemed so real.”

Police: Two Brothers Told Investigators They Were Paid by Jussie Smollett to Stage Attack

By USA Today. Two brothers told Chicago police investigators that they were paid by “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett to stage an attack on him, according to a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.

The person, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation, said police are attempting to interview Smollett again, so they can question him about the brothers’ account.

Smollett’s attorneys later Saturday issued a statement saying the actor would continue to cooperate with police, but felt “victimized” by reports that he might have been involved in the attack.

“Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying,” the statement from attorneys Todd Pugh and Victor P. Henderson said.

Smollett, who is black and gay, said he was attacked while walking home through Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood late last month. He told police masked men tied a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him and yelled the slurs and “MAGA country!” (Read more from “Police: Two Brothers Told Investigators They Were Paid by Jussie Smollett to Stage Attack” HERE)

WEINER OUT! Disgraced Former Congressman Leaves Jail After Serving Just 15 Months

Disgraced former congressman — and convicted federal sex offender — Anthony Weiner, was released from prison this morning after serving 15 months for sexting a minor across state lines.

The New York Daily News reports that Weiner has left the minimum security facility he’s called home for the last year, the Federal Medical Center in Devins, Massachusetts, and is now “in a reentry center,” working to acclimate back to normal life on the outside.

It’s not immediately clear if Weiner is a free man, however. He is either in a halfway house, the outlet reports, or he is under house arrest. He is being closely monitored by the Federal Residential Reentry Management Agency, according to the New York Post. He will not be officially released from federal custody until mid-May, though he managed to “shave about three months off his sentence,” the Post says, due to his good behavior behind bars.

Additionally, the Post reports, Weiner will “spend three years on supervised release and will have to pay a $10,000 fine as well as register as a sex offender.”

Anthony Weiner has been in and out of trouble over his “sexting” problem since 2011, when he was first caught messaging a woman who was not his wife, photos of his private parts, using Twitter. After first claiming to be hacked, Weiner was forced to resign his office and begin a public “rehabilitation.” (Read more from “WEINER Out!

9/11 Victim Fund Is Almost Depleted. Here’s What That Means for Survivors.

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, which provides ongoing financial support for those who fell ill due to the 2001 terrorist attacks, is running out of money, officials said on Friday. As of now, the fund has paid out $5 billion in benefits out of its $7.3 billion budget.

According to the Associated Press, around 40,000 people have applied for financial assistance, with 19,000 of those claims still pending. The fund’s special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said they’re having to cut the amount a claimant receives to make sure there’s at least some assistance for every one who should be supported. . .

Because fund organizers knew they’re on the verge of running out of funds, they established a new practice: the fund would pay 50 percent of qualified claims submitted by Feb. 1. Qualified claims received after Feb. 1 would be paid at 30 percent of their value. . .

Part of the reason so many claimants have come forward is because of the number of first responders who worked in soot without proper respiratory protection. Many of those who developed respiratory or digestive-system ailments did so almost immediately. Other issues, like brain cancers and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, take longer to develop.

According to Bhattacharyya, the volume of claims has increased over the past year, with more than 8,000 claims filed in the last four months. Some of those claimants are people who lived or worked near the World Trade Center but weren’t actively involved in recovery efforts. (Read more from “9/11 Victim Fund Is Almost Depleted.

2020 Census: SCOTUS Will Decide Citizenship Question

Once again President Trump has to rely on the Supreme Court to reaffirm another action item. It took quite a bit of time before the Supreme Court finally declared what many who aren’t raging liberal knew: that his executive order on immigration erroneously referred to as the so-called Muslim ban was constitutional and well within his authority as president of the United States. With the 2020 census coming up, the Trump White House wants to include a citizenship question in the survey, something that hasn’t been done since the 1950s. Of course, the Left went nuts. One Obama-appointed judge slapped it down, but another federal judge from the D.C. District Court refused to block it based on privacy grounds. On Friday, the Supreme Court officially added the case to its docket. Arguments will begin in April, as a definite decision must be rendered by June (via WaPo):

The Supreme Court added a politically explosive case to its docket Friday, agreeing to decide by the end of June whether the Trump administration can add a question about citizenship to the 2020 Census form sent to every American household. . .

The Trump administration had asked the court to bypass its normal procedures and accept the case immediately because it needs an answer by the end of June to print census forms and conduct the count on schedule.

Texas Landowners First to Challenge Trump’s National Emergency Plan

On Friday, President Trump followed through on his threat to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, announcing he had found $8 billion from various government agencies to get it done. He had his share of supporters, like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who directed him to do whatever needed to do to get that barrier built. But many others – both liberals and conservatives – were displeased with how he went about it.

Just hours after Trump’s announcement, three Texas landowners and the Frontera Audubon Society in Texas, an environmental group, became the first folks to file a lawsuit against POTUS’s emergency plans for the border. The government had previously informed the landowners that if the funds became available, they’d begin construction of the wall on their properties. The advocacy group Public Citizen filed the case in federal district court in Washington, D.C. on Friday, arguing the president exceeded his authority under the National Emergencies Act of 1976. The group called it a “fake national emergency.”

“Under our Constitution, built on the principle of separation of powers, a disagreement between the President and Congress about how to spend money does not constitute an emergency authorizing unilateral executive action,” the lawsuit read, in part.

Why Isn’t Trump Using the Most Obvious and Effective Executive Actions for the Border?

The goal is to stop illegal immigration and the cartels, not to build partial fencing as an end in itself. Like many solutions to life’s problems, fencing is extremely helpful as part of a broader solution, but almost meaningless if we ignore the cause of this crisis and downright moot if we make that cause worse. This is the key to understanding the border emergency declaration mixed with signing this awful omnibus-amnesty bill.

The president is right. We have a national emergency. The amnesty provision in the bill he is signing is the national emergency. In fact, it is an international emergency that will spawn the worst global human trafficking crisis ever seen and make the American people pay for it in both money and security. It openly invites any illegal alien to contract with cartels to smuggle in more illegal teenagers and children and then obtain amnesty merely by association with the teenager or child. The power of avoiding deportation, as I mentioned yesterday, will be such an incentive that it will create an entire market for the cartel smuggling, even worse than the current crisis.

Today, Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border is not designed to actually deal with the real emergency at the border and finally stop illegal immigration and combat the cartels. It is designed to distract his base from the betrayal of signing this amnesty bill and focus on his partial, watered-down strategic fencing, when this issue has long become much more severe than a lack of fencing in some areas.

Signing this bill pours gasoline on the emergency, and the emergency declaration is a non-sequitur to that very problem he is asserting.

Trump is right that there is an emergency at our border unlike any other period of illegal immigration in this country. It is an emergency that largely began during his own presidency, long after he made a border wall the focal point of his enforcement agenda. The challenge at the border thanks to the courts has changed. The emergency is not the lack of fencing. The emergency is our own policies, policies that this administration has reluctantly continued and has no road map to ending. I’ve written six reasons why this border invasion is quantitatively and qualitatively worse than before, but here is a quick summary:

Unlike past waves of Mexican migration, where hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants were immediately returned, the Central American immigrants have been treated as de facto refugees and asylees and released into our nation at huge cost to our communities.

Because the Central American wave is driven by lawfare, they surrender to Border Patrol rather than trying to sneak in.

Once the cartels know the migrants want to surrender to agents, they are now shoving hundreds of them at once at the border agents. Worse, what is fueling this wave of migration is the DACA amnesty Trump is continuing, plus the court rulings that establish a rule that if you come with a child or if you are a teenager, you are essentially not an illegal alien and you get to stay. We’ve had over 60 waves of these large groups in just the first four months of this fiscal year, something we’ve never experienced before. This places a strain on the agents that has never happened before and essentially shuts down the Border Patrol as a deterrent to the cartels.

While the agents are busy serving as a bed and breakfast and transportation hubs, that is when the cartels are bringing in their criminals, drugs, and more importantly, as DEA Special Agent Robert Murphy told me, the drug producers and traffickers who actually make and move the product.

This is a very simple case for Trump to make to the American people, because the data, evidence, and anecdotes all back this up. The problem is that the policy solutions that should be dictated by his declaration should address the cause of this crisis, not just building a small area of fencing with a few billion dollars. And Trump’s signing of a bill that openly invites all illegal aliens in this country to sponsor more children to come here illegally is the biggest emergency of all.

The reason why a border wall works in Israel is because infiltrators don’t want to meet an Israeli soldier. They will be prosecuted, at bare minimum. Thus, a border wall is enough of a deterrent because of the likelihood that the crosser will get caught in the process of traversing the barrier. This is the same reason why the fences in Yuma worked back when we had the Mexican migrants who were either turned back or prosecuted. The illegal aliens did not want to get confronted by agents; they wanted to sneak into the country. It’s impossible to sneak in when climbing a tall fence; thus, the fencing worked.

That is no longer the case, since we’ve invited in everyone in the world to come as teenagers or with teenagers and young kids. They want nothing more than to surrender to agents from on top of the fence. They are coming from all over the world. There are now caravans from Venezuela waiting to come. They will just come to points of entry or climb the fence, as they are doing every day, including over the 18-foot bollards in Yuma that once worked to deter the traditional illegal immigrants from Mexico. As Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot, said on my podcast earlier this month, “You have to have all elements of enforcement to have an effect.” He lamented how his deputies are taking kids to the hospital after they are dropped over the 18-foot fence and this administration refuses to prosecute the parents because of political concerns “like we would prosecute any American parent for engaging in such criminal behavior.”

Who will pay for the effects of this bill Trump is supporting? Former ICE Director Thomas Homan warned in an interview with CR, “This section of law will cause a surge of UACs who will be smuggled by criminal organizations that have been bankrolled by this legislation. More children will be abused and more M-S 13 members will enter and their smugglers in the U.S. [will be] protected.” The MS-13 problem is exclusively because of the UAC loophole that is being expanded, not fixed, in this bill.

Which brings us back to Trump’s emergency declaration.

When a sick patient comes into a hospital, the urgent job of emergency room personnel is to triage, try to stop the bleeding, then treat the illness or wound. The final step is to inoculate the patient from future bouts of illness. The fence, in this case, is not the emergency element; it is the inoculation. The emergency need is to disregard illegal nationwide court injunctions and follow the president’s unquestionable 212(f) and Article II powers to shut down cross-border migration. It’s an emergency need to end the asylum and UAC and Flores nonsense. It’s an emergency need to stop sanctuary cities. It’s an emergency need to have a military buildup and actually treat the cartels like a defense issue tactically.

Once we do all of that, then, frankly, we won’t even need a fence, because the flow will be shut down. Nonetheless, it’s important to eventually build one, so that if a future Democrat president renews all the invitations to come here illegally, at least there is a wall to slow them down. But that is not the urgent resuscitation; it is the long-term inoculation. If Trump is going to expend such political capital on executive action, why not take that action and direct it towards what is actually causing the emergency and what would solve it? How about we stop violating the Constitution by handing out American Social Security numbers to Obama’s illegally amnestied aliens? Why won’t Trump end Obama’s amnesty, and why is he continuing it even longer than the court asked?

This is the real problem with the executive action. We can make a strong case that the border situation is the biggest emergency we have had in years. But the actions of signing this amnesty bill, with no legitimate border security provisions, and then declaring an emergency just to reprogram a couple billion in DOD funding for a campaign promise, without simply using Article II powers to directly shut off the illegal immigration fueling all of this, drastically undermines the case.

If this is indeed an emergency, which I believe it is, Trump needs to demonstrate it holistically. It’s better policy and better politics. (For more from the author of “Why Isn’t Trump Using the Most Obvious and Effective Executive Actions for the Border?” please click HERE)
