Ignore the Protesters: This Is How the British Really Feel About Trump

Thanks to the exaggerated outrage of the mainstream media and the attention-seeking protests of London leftists, a narrative seems to have set in that the vast majority of British people oppose this week’s visit of President Trump. As a Brit myself, however, I am delighted to confirm this lazy slur could not be further from the truth.

In reality, the vast majority of British conservatives (and a good chunk of floating voters too) are coming to admire Trump. His unmistakable approach to politics – straight-talking, honest and completely fearless – is increasingly viewed with envy by British voters tired of backsliding career politicians. Brits look over the Atlantic and see a leader who actually puts his money where his mouth is – and gets results for it too.

To fully understand Trump’s popularity, you have to look at the current state of British politics. Over two years since the country voted to leave the European Union, we have seen virtually zero progress at delivering on the result of the referendum. Rather than battling with Brussels to return our sovereignty, end uncontrolled immigration, and give a better deal to British business, Theresa May’s government has been paralyzed by infighting, trying desperately to scrap together compromises which keep the establishment forces on side. Earlier this year, a British political journalist revealed that Trump often begins his calls with the Prime Minister by asking “are you out yet?” – and you can see why.

It’s no surprise that Brits are increasingly frustrated with the government’s mishandling of Brexit. What’s more interesting is that when you ask them what kind of leader they want to get us out of this mess, an increasing number are saying the same thing: someone like Trump. Brexit supporters observe how he deals with similar rubbish deals (the Iranian nuclear fiasco, for one) and they realize how much more can be achieved when leaders actually show some muscle.

Then there’s the fact that Trump remains the only international leader to publicly suggest offering Britain a new trade deal – something which is wildly popular with mainstream voters. While Brexit’s critics may paint the vote as insular and backwards, they forget that our biggest motivation for leaving Europe was to strike better trade deals elsewhere. As a businessman, Trump respects this. He has made loud and clear overtures in support of a big deal (unlike President Obama, who famously warned the Brits they would be “at the back of the queue” if they left the EU).

Rep Makes Astounding Accusations Against Hillary Clinton – Here’s What He Said

By The Blaze. In an interview after his explosive performance questioning Peter Strzok Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) made astounding claims against former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Fox News. . .

Gohmert told Brian Kilmeade on Fox News that he regretted that his outburst and insult against Strzok were overshadowing the very important information he had gathered during the hearing.

“He [Strzok] was told by the intelligence community inspector general’s investigator Frank Rutger that they had found an anomaly in the emails going to and from Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private server,” Gohmert explained. . .

“So you’re saying that in Hillary Clinton’s emails,” Kilmeade asked, “they were forwarded to someone else?”

“Yes, and it was because they were hacked,” Gohmert answered, “and [DOJ Inspector General] Horowitz didn’t point that out, you know they, and the previous story you know that [former FBI Director James] Comey gave us, well it was not a good server, it was possible that it got hacked, but there was no evidence that it was hacked, and then we find out, and that’s what I brought out today, that the intelligence community, IG, brought it to their attention and they did nothing. Nothing!” (Read more from “Rep Makes Astounding Accusations Against Hillary Clinton – Here’s What He Said” HERE)

Watch: Strzok’s Most Ridiculous Claim, Trey Gowdy Slams Him for It

By The Federalist. In a fiery exchange between Rep. Trey Gowdy and FBI agent Peter Strzok during a House committee hearing Thursday morning, the FBI agent claimed he was unbiased despite sending numerous text messages lambasting then-presidential candidate Donald Trump while leading investigations into Trump.

When Gowdy asked Strzok why he got kicked off the investigation into whether Trump colluded with Russian officials in order to steal the election from Hillary Clinton in 2016, the FBI agent repeatedly insisted that it wasn’t because he was biased against the president.

“It is not my understanding that [Robert Mueller] kicked me off because of any bias,” Strzok said. “It was done based on the appearance. If you want to represent what you said accurately, I’m happy to answer that question, but I don’t appreciate what was originally said being changed.”

“I don’t give a damn what you appreciate, agent Strzok,” Gowdy shot back. “I don’t appreciate having an F.B.I. agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations during 2016.”

At the end of his time questioning Strzok, another congressman intervened to give the FBI agent time to respond — which is when things really started to get interesting.

Gowdy: Agent Strzok Can Not See or Understand His Own Bias

By Real Clear Politics. [Trey Gowdy transcript:]

. . .

In March of 2016, Agent Strzok had Clinton winning 100 million to zero, even though the investigation was far from being over. That is the prejudging of someone’s innocence before all the evidence is in.

. . . Strzok promised to stop Trump from becoming president before the investigation even began. He talked, longingly, of Trump resigning two months after he was inaugurated and well before the special counsel investigation even began.

Strzok even talked about impeachment the day the special counsel was appointed. That is prejudging guilt, it is prejudging punishment, and it is textbook bias. We live in a 50/50 country and we accept that. But we’re a 100 percent country when it comes to having law enforcement that doesn’t prejudge innocence before investigations are over and doesn’t prejudge guilt and punishment before an investigation even begins.

Agent Strzok had Hillary Clinton winning the White House before he finished investigating her. Agent Strzok had Donald Trump impeached before he even started investigating him. That is bias.

Agent Strzok may not see it, but the rest of the country does. And it’s not what we want, expect, or deserve from any law enforcement officer, much less the FBI. A fair, bias-free investigation is not a Republican or Democrat issue, it’s an American issue. Or at least it used to be.

Page Thinks She’s Above the Law, so Congress Sends in U.S. Marshals

By Conservative Tribune. That’s the scenario playing out this week in Washington, as Congress tries to get former FBI lawyer Lisa Page to testify about anti-Trump texts she exchanged with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an affair. . .

“I am very disturbed by this,” Ryan said of Page’s no-show during a press conference. “Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional. … She was a part of a mess that they have uncovered over at DOJ. She has an obligation to come testify.” . . .

Republican Rep. Robert Goodlatte of Virginia said Wednesday that Page’s attorney initially agreed to accept service of the subpoena for Page, but “then turned around and immediately tried to reject it,” according to Fox News. . .

Page’s attorney, Amy Jeffress, said her client did not appear Wednesday because she did not have time to prepare, claiming Page had been denied access to FBI files necessary for her to prepare for questioning.

“Through her actions and words, Lisa has made it abundantly clear that she will cooperate with this investigation. All she is asking is to be treated as other witnesses have under the Committees’ own rules,” Jeffress said in a statement.

U.S. Marshals ‘went to Lisa Page’s house three times’ to serve a subpoena

By Emily Goodin and Ariel Zilber. A top Republican on Capitol Hill has sent the United States Marshals Service to deliver a subpoena to a former FBI lawyer who defied an earlier request by Congress to testify about alleged anti-Trump bias within the bureau.

Representative Bob Goodlatte, a Republican from Virginia, says he instructed the Marshals to serve a subpoena to Lisa Page, whom he has accused of ‘apparently’ having ‘something to hide.’

Earlier on Wednesday, Page defied a congressional subpoena and declined to appear before a closed-door session of the House Judiciary Committee, which Goodlatte chairs.

Goodlatte said that initially Page’s lawyer agreed to accept the subpoena, but ‘then turned around and immediately tried to reject it,’ according to Fox News.

[He continued:] ‘They had to go back three times before they were finally able to reach her.’ (Read more from “US Marshals Go to Page’s House Three Times” HERE)

Leftist Activist Blames Trump for Racist ‘White Mother’ Attacking Elderly Man. That’s Not What Happened.

By The Daily Wire. . .According to KABC News, Rodolfo Rodriguez passed a woman who looked upset while walking down the street. “The woman pushed him and dropped him. She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times,” said one witness. Several other men joined in and helped beat Rodriguez, too, “at times using what appeared to be a brick or a piece of concrete,” the witness added.

The heartbreaking story instantly went viral, and leftists were quick to blame President Donald Trump for the attack. In one glaring example, leading leftist activist and president of The New Agenda Amy Siskind boldly stated that the unidentified assailant was a “white mother,” adding that the attack was a direct result of the man in the White House. “This is Donald Trump,” she declared.

“A white mother beat a 92-year-old Hispanic man with a brick in the face on Independence Day,” she wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “He has legitimized the worst of us: ‘Go back to your country, why are you here, bad things.’ F*** racist [White House advisor] Stephen Miller and his $80 sushi.”

But Siskind’s crafted and politically-motivated narrative is false. It turns out that the suspect is a 30-year-old black woman identified by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as Laquisha Jones. Not a “white mother.”

Curiously, Siskind deleted her tweet without explanation. The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra asked the activist about the deletion, but did not receive an answer. He was, however, blocked by Siskind in roughly seven minutes time.

Arrest Made in Beating of 91 Year Old Who Reportedly Was Told to ‘Go Back to Mexico’

By CNN Wire. A week after a 91-year-old Mexican man says he was beaten with a concrete block in Southern California, a woman has been arrested in connection with the assault, authorities said.

Laquisha Jones, 30, was arrested Tuesday night in Los Angeles on suspicion of beating Rodolfo Rodriguez last week, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

She was being held on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, with bail set at $200,000.

The 91 year old was discharged from the hospital so he could recover at home. That’s where he spoke to reporters about being attacked by a group of people while going for a walk on the Fourth of July.

“I can’t walk anymore,” Rodriguez said in Spanish. “I’m in so much pain.” (Read more from “Arrest Made in Beating of 91 Year Old Who Reportedly Was Told to ‘Go Back to Mexico’” HERE)

Witness Claims Federal Agents Bragged About Murdering Seth Rich; Family Condemns ‘Conspiracy Theories’

By Big League Politics. A witness claimed Tuesday that he heard a Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) witness and an Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) agent discussing how they killed Seth Rich, the leaker of internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks, in the summer of 2016 right before the Democratic National Convention.

Lobbyist Jack Burkman, who said that he was recently shot while investigating the case, presented the witness at the Holiday Inn in Rosslyn. The witness is masked and had his voice disguised when audio of his statement played at the press conference set up by Burkman.

Similar theories have pointed to two MS-13 members who were allegedly hired by the federal government to kill Rich in the wee morning hours near his D.C. apartment. But this witness makes it clear that DEA and ATF boasted about their role in the assassination.

Sarah Palin Issues This Challenge to CBS After ‘Disrespectful’ Fake Interview

By The Blaze. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin challenged CBS and Showtime after she walked out of a fake interview she was duped into agreeing to with a disguised comedian. . .

Palin says she was contacted by an organization that invited her to an interview with a wounded warrior – but the veteran was an imposter and in fact comedian Sacha Cohen, who is known for his fake interviews of famous celebrities. . .

“Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm,” she added, “but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin.” . . .

“Here is my challenge, shallow Sacha boy,” Palin said. “Go ahead – air the footage. Experience tells us it will be heavily edited, not pretty, and intended to humiliate.”

“The challenge is to Cohen, CBS and Showtime,” she added, “donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets.” (Read more from “Sarah Palin Issues This Challenge to CBS After ‘Disrespectful’ Fake Interview” HERE)

Furious Sarah Palin Reveals She Was Tricked by Sacha Baron Cohen When He Pretended to Be a Wounded Veteran to Interview Her for His New Show ‘Who Is America?’

By Daily Mail. Sacha Baron Cohen has done his best to avoid the spotlight and hide behind the characters he plays for almost 20 years, but that may be about to change.

Sarah Palin revealed on Tuesday that she was duped into filming an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen in Washington DC for his new series Who Is America?, completely unaware of the comedian’s intentions.

She claims that Cohen disguised himself as a wounded veteran for the sit-down, and that to cap things off the production team knowingly dropped her and her daughter off at the wrong airport, knowing they would not be able to get a flight back to Alaska. . . .

DailyMail.com has been told by a source that it was the American Programs Bureau that presented this opportunity to Palin, the same group who manages the likes of Larry King, Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, Sir Richard Branson and Mikhail Gorbachev, to name a few.

‘For my interview, my daughter and I were asked to travel across the country where Cohen (I presume) had heavily disguised himself as a disabled US Veteran, fake wheelchair and all,’ explained Palin.

San Francisco Earns yet Another Disgusting Moniker: Poopville

Trash bags full of approximately 20 pounds of human poop were left on the sidewalk over the weekend in downtown San Francisco.

It’s the latest — and perhaps most alarming — sign of the increased filthiness of one of the most popular cities in the United States. . .

“Walked by this yesterday without knowing it had been a reported thing,” wrote Reddit user green_street. “Arguably the worst smell I’ve ever encountered. . .

A spokesman for SF311, San Francisco’s non-emergency customer service for governmental affairs, told The San Francisco Chronicle that though human waste found on city sidewalks might be common, this large of an amount is “not typical.” . . .

“I can’t say I’ve seen anything like that,” said tusi2, who has lived in the Tenderloin for two years. “I’ve seen open feces, smeared feces. I commend whoever put it in a bag. (Read more from “San Francisco Earns yet Another Disgusting Moniker: Poopville” HERE)

Bear Cam Cub Gets Killed by a Powerful Male Bear. Why?

The long-standing king of Alaska’s Brooks River, Bear 856, killed a recently born cub along the river bank on July 3.

The killing event of a cub, or infanticide, happened beyond view of the bear cams situated near the river’s waterfall, where salmon collect and bears congregate, so streamed footage of the lurid event wasn’t captured. However, the killing was photographed and confirmed by rangers as well as former Katmai National Park ranger Mike Fitz, who has returned to the river to report on bear activity for explore.org, which operates the wildlife cameras. . .

Global viewers of the bear cam most often watch bears catching fish, sleeping, or exploring the river with their cubs. The bear world, however, can be quite violent, and infanticide events are not unknown — there have been 13 documented cases in 35 years at the Brooks River. In recent years, the killings have been witnessed by rangers, who’ve heard the yelps of a dying cub.

It’s not fully understood why large males sometimes kill cubs, though there are compelling theories, detailed below. In this case, the event began when rangers watched Bear 856 assert his dominance by chasing another male bear (Bear 634) out of the river.

There are three leading theories, detailed by Katmai National Park. The first is that a male bear’s killing of a female’s cub or cubs will force her back into heat, whereby she might be receptive to mating again. A nursing female, with newly born and helpless spring cubs, won’t go into heat. Forcing a female back into heat may give that male bear more mating opportunities, and accordingly, increased opportunities to spread his genes.

Man Loses His Job After Viral Video Shows Him Asking Black Woman for THIS

By The Blaze. A North Carolina man accused of racial profiling at his neighborhood pool has lost his job after a video of the incident went viral on social media this week, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.

On Wednesday afternoon, Adam Bloom, a white man, allegedly asked Jasmine Edwards to show her identification at the Glenridge community pool in Winston-Salem.

Edwards, who claimed Bloom asked her for her ID because she is black, shot video after police arrived to help diffuse the situation. A few hours later, she posted the video on her Facebook account and it went viral.

Bloom’s employer, Sonoco, saw the video and posted a statement on Facebook that said he’s “no longer employed by the company in any respect.”

Bloom asked Edwards where she lived and to show him her ID while she was at the pool, which is only open to residents and their guests. (Read more from “Man Loses His Job After Viral Video Shows Him Asking Black Woman for THIS” HERE)
