Billboard: Get Your Guns, Pro-Impeachment Liberals

By Indy100. A pro-Trump billboard that tells liberals to ‘get their guns’ if they try to impeach President Trump has kicked off a storm on social media.

The sign, which is posted on private property in Maryland, around 30 miles from Washington, reads:

Hey liberals, better get your guns if you try to impeach President Trump. From all of your deplorables in Calvert County.

. . .

Residents of the area have had a mixed response to the sign’s message. Speaking to AB7 News, Michelle Rinker said: “I love the billboard. We’re conservative and there’s a lot of corruption that’s happened in this country and I don’t think it’s threatening.”

Other people have been less enthusiastic: “I hate that billboard,” a woman said. “I think it’s very threatening. I don’t like it at all.” (Read more from “Billboard: Get Your Guns, Pro-Impeachment Liberals” HERE)

Pro-Trump Billboard in Maryland Sparks Social Media Debate

By NBC News. A billboard in Maryland warning liberals to arm themselves if they continue efforts to impeach President Donald Trump led to an uproar on social media after a photo of the sign was posted to an anti-Trump Facebook page.

The billboard is staked on private property along Maryland Route 4 in Huntingtown, around 30 miles southeast of Washington. It reads, “Hey Liberals: Better Get Your Guns if You Try to Impeach President Trump,” in dark red letters, adding, “From All of Your Deplorables in Calvert County.” (Huntingtown is in Calvert County.) . . .

Payne said the message on the billboard is changed about once a month. In April, [a pro-life] message on the billboard led several community members to contact police. (Read more from “Pro-Trump Billboard in Maryland Sparks Social Media Debate” HERE)

Monica Lewinsky Just Openly Attacked Clinton Privilege

. . .The woman who was at the center of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment from her White House intern days in the 1990s has mostly stayed out of the headlines since those dramatic days, but when she resurfaces it’s almost always humiliating for the entire Clinton clan . . .

In a Twitter post published Wednesday, Lewinsky chided an anonymous event organizer for inviting her, but then canceling her invitation when Bill Clinton decided to be there, too.

Within an hour of Lewinsky’s tweet, the liberal website (which apparently moves in the same circles as Lewinsky and the Clintons) reported that the organization was Town & Country magazine.

According to the Huffington Post, Clinton attended a “summit” hosted by Town & Country on Wednesday in New York City, where he introduced young Emma Gonzalez, one of the teenagers who has turned February’s mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, into an extended 15 minutes of fame. That was the event Lewinsky had been banned from.

Lewinsky followed up her post with one that implied Town & Country tried to mollify her by offering a makeup puff piece.

Why the FBI’s Raid on Michael Cohen Sets a Dangerous Precedent

. . .It has been long recognized that, for the right to counsel to have any value, clients must have absolute confidence in their ability to communicate confidentially with their lawyers, whether in person, by phone, or on email. That is what is known as the attorney-client privilege, and it is indispensable to the practice of law. After recent events, however, only a fool would place any trust in it.

Like most folks with day jobs, I do not generally follow the ins and outs of the special counsel investigation. But no attorney in America could possibly have missed last month’s news. The FBI, on referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, raided the office, home, and hotel room of Michael Cohen, the president’s personal lawyer, and hauled off “thousands if not millions” of pages of documents. In court filings, the feds further revealed that, for weeks prior to the search, they had been secretly reading Cohen’s emails as he was sending them.

Moreover, prosecutors apparently convinced a federal magistrate to issue this warrant on the flimsiest of pretenses—the so-called “crime-fraud exception” to the attorney-client privilege. If media reports are to be believed, Cohen is being investigated for one or more payoffs to old Donald Trump paramours, payments that, because they theoretically benefitted a candidate for president, could be deemed an unreported “in-kind” campaign contribution.

Folks my age and older will remember the ‘90s edition of Mueller, another budding Inspector Javert named Ken Starr. Starr was originally tasked with investigating a shady Clinton land deal but ended up stinging a White House intern into confessing an illicit relationship with the president. He then produced a salacious report that needlessly humiliated and traumatized a young woman, who still seems not to have fully recovered.

But even Starr never raided a law office. At least not that of a living lawyer. He did try to grab the privileged communications of a deceased one: Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster. At some point, Starr moved beyond the land deal and took to investigating President Clinton’s firing of the White House’s travel staff, a ridiculous endeavor if ever there were one. When the investigation began, Foster turned to the law firm of Swidler Berlin for legal advice. Nine days later, he took his own life, launching a decade’s worth of conspiracy theories. Starr then tried to subpoena Foster’s privileged communications. (Read more from “Why the FBI’s Raid on Michael Cohen Sets a Dangerous Precedent” HERE)

Met Gala Slammed for Mocking Christianity

Tommy Hilfiger proclaimed that his inspiration for the Met Gala Monday was “In the name of the father, the son and Holy Spirit,” USA Today reported. . .

Just plain mockery of faith, according to a harsh critique from Daily Mail columnist Piers Morgan.

“Next year’s Met Gala is going to have an ‘Islam’ theme. Yes, guests in 2019 will be encouraged to wear skimpy, provocative dresses that ‘celebrate’ the Prophet Mohammad, Islamic clothing including hijabs and burqas, and the Quran,” he wrote. “I can also reveal that the 2020 Met Gala will have a ‘Jewish’ theme. Yes, a bunch of celebrities and models will be posing for the world’s paparazzi dressed in all manner of Jewish attire and regalia, including dressing up as Rabbis and wearing kippahs.

“Oh, wait. Neither of these things is actually going to happen. In fact, just by suggesting it, I’m sure I will be subjecting myself to immediate anger from many Muslims and Jews,” he wrote.

“The Met wouldn’t dream of having an Islam or Jewish themed, but Catholicism is apparently fine. Monday night was titled ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ and the stars and their designers threw themselves into the theme. Rihanna came as a silver pope. Yet apparently it’s absolutely fine to have a ‘Catholic’ theme, as we saw at last night’s Met Gala.

Turns out, Influential Progressive Group Has Some Sexual Harassment Skeletons in Its Closet

The Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank, had an internal sexual harassment problem, according to a report by BuzzFeed News Tuesday.

Benton Strong, the former associate director of communications for the “War Room,” is accused of sexual harassment by two previous female CAP employees, BuzzFeed News reported. One employee referred to as Mary described receiving “lewd and inappropriate text messages” from Strong, including wanting to perform oral sex on her. He discussed with male staffers whether or not black or white women are better at blow jobs and praised her body, she claimed.

Another woman claimed she reported to human resources that Strong asked women if a man had ever flashed them or masturbated in front of them. He allegedly made fun of a woman who claimed that it happened to her.

“It was like incessant. … It was like strings and strings of texts and her just being like ‘no no no,’” said Mary’s friend, another former staffer at the organization. Mary reported the instances to human resources and Strong was told not to come back to work. He was already leaving in three weeks to work for former Seattle Mayor Ed Murray who resigned in 2017 after five allegations of child sex abuse against him, according to The Washington Post.

However, Mary alleged that CAP’s management seemed frustrated that she spoke out against Strong in her exit memo. The former staffer claimed that management asked if she was “worth spending time or money on.” “All of this to say, I surely expected better out of an organization that housed a national campaign on sexual assault,” Mary wrote.

Russian Lawyer Asks Mueller an Important Question

By AP. A Russian lawyer who discussed sanctions with Donald Trump Jr. in New York during his father’s 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller has not contacted her yet.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Natalia Veselnitskaya also detailed her recent meeting in Berlin with investigators from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. Like Mueller, the committee is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Veselnitskaya met in June 2016 with then-candidate Donald Trump’s son, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, his campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, after Trump Jr. was told the Russian lawyer had potentially incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.

Can Mueller Be More Honest Than His Colleagues?

By The Hill. I think it’s entirely possible — likely, in fact — that Robert Mueller is an honest broker and performing his job as special counsel without fear or favor. That he will investigate until he reaches the end of the logical trail and present his legitimate findings accordingly, recommending prosecution of those who may have violated our nation’s laws and betrayed our trust.

But considering the information that’s become available in the past year, we would be remiss if we didn’t at least consider other possible scenarios. Here’s one of them, posited amidst the context of news that has come to light. It has to do with a special counsel probe with the appearance of several important conflicts of interest.

There are many excellent agents within our intelligence agencies who deserve great credit and respect. But we also know that some bad actors within those agencies have a daunting record of problems that include lying about evidence; conducting politically-motivated acts; botched terrorism investigations; improper surveillance of private citizens, members of Congress and journalists; providing incorrect information to Congress; and illegally withholding evidence.

When top FBI officials spoke privately of needing an “insurance policy” in case Trump were elected, what if they felt this “policy” were necessary not just because they hated Trump, or because they believed Trump was illegally conspiring with Russia? What if they feared what a Trump administration might uncover within the intelligence agencies … and what the administration might do to take steps to reform them? Go up against the intelligence agencies, and as top Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned, “They have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

Mueller isn’t exactly an unconflicted player in this scenario. He was FBI director from 2001-2013 when many alleged abuses occurred and — theoretically — would have a vested interest in protecting his former colleagues and his own legacy by preventing a Trump administration from poking around into alleged intelligence agency misdeeds.

Trump’s Presidency Has Hit Liberal Comedian Amy Schumer Hard – Here’s What She Said

Liberal comedian Amy Schumer says that the “nightmare” of the Trump presidency has been so difficult on her that she’s doing less stand-up comedy . . .

“I’ve been doing less standup, just because it’s not funny,” she said in the interview, referring to how politics has been such a discouragement for her . . .

Schumer was publicizing her new movie, I Feel Pretty, about a woman who suffers a head injury and wrongly imagines that she is as attractive as a supermodel.

The comedian said that the movie would have been better with a woman of color as the leading actress instead of herself.

“It’s not a perfect movie,” she says of I Feel Pretty, which she also produced. “It would be great if my role had been played by a woman of color and there were more trans people in it, more people with disabilities.” She readjusts the pillow behind her. “But it’s a step in the right direction, I hope.”

President Trump Finally Breaks Silence on Stormy ‘Con Job’

. . .Trump was responding to a tweet which showed side-by-side images of the sketch with a photo of Daniels and her husband Glendon Crain.

Trump has denied the accusations by Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and had not spoken publicly about Daniels until Wednesday morning when he tweeted in response to an unverified account, calling the person in the sketch a “nonexistent man.”

Daniels, who has alleged that she had an affair with the president more than a decade ago, released the drawing on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday in what co-host Meghan McCain questioned as a publicity stunt. The adult film actress claimed the man in the sketch threatened her in 2011 to remain quiet about her encounter with Trump.

The drawing generated a major response on social media as many speculated about the how the man in the sketch resembled New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady or actor Willem Dafoe, among others.

‘Welcome to the playing field,’ Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted in response to Trump, taking a dig at his personal attorney, Michael Cohen who had his home and offices raided by the FBI over a week ago. Cohen had admitted to paying Daniels $130,000 in 2016 to be quiet about the alleged affair with Trump. (Read more from “President Trump Finally Breaks Silence on Stormy ‘Con Job’” HERE)
