Trump-Putin Bombshell “For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder” | July 17 2018

Yes, It’s True. Putin Mentioned $400 MILLION Russia/Clinton Bribe/Money Laundering Scheme During Today’s Summit

|| DCWhispers

“A name was spoken today that likely sent chills down the spines of assorted globalist media in attendance at the Trump-Putin summit:  Bill Browder.

Browder is as shadowy a political/financial figure as you will find and is alleged to have funneled/laundered up to $400 MILLION dollars into the Clintons’ coffers. The media is purposely ignoring the Putin name-drop for good reason. Some of them are said to be personally implicated in the cover-up as well.

Browder, head of Hermitage Capital, also has ties to Fusion GPS and the Clinton Global Initiative – both foundational components of what would become the orchestrated Trump/Russia conspiracy the Establishment Media continues to use to try and halt Mr. Trump’s America-First agenda.

Please read the following 2017  Zero Hedge report carefully:

…Just weeks before the Trump Tower meeting, Russia’s general prosecutor had returned to the matter. On May 19, 2016, the office issued a statement that its investigation into purchases of shares in gas giant Gazprom by Browder’s Hermitage Fund and his investors, including Ziff Brothers, had found they evaded more than 1 billion rubles ($16 million) in Russian taxes, transferring the profits to Ziff-controlled companies overseas. Russian prosecutors said they suspected the transactions also may have violated U.S. law and that they planned to send an international-assistance request to the U.S. seeking a probe.

Veselnitskaya repeated those allegations in comments to the Russian press about the Magnitsky case at the time.

On June 4, 2017, Yuri Chaika, Russia’s general prosecutor, said on national television that his agency “has presented serious evidence of violations of the law by Browder and the Ziff brothers” to U.S. officials. There’s no indication of any U.S. response to that claim.

(It should also be noted that the fake Trump dossier originated in part via the anti-Brexit British government. Trump supported Brexit. The British elite did not. Mr. Browder is very well connected to the London-centered political hierarchy. (He was born in America but is a British citizen) Coincidence? You decide.)

On a possible related side note – Mr. Browder’s grandfather was head of Communist Party USA.

Sidenote #2 – Hermitage Capital was once the single largest portfolio investor in Russia until Browder and company fled following allegations by Russian officials of fraud/tax evasion.

Here is some of what Mr. Putin had to say on the subject of Browder’s connection to the Clintons and Clinton-Obama era U.S. intelligence officials:

For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence offers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.

What if foreign nations like Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, etc., have over time successfully bought and paid for high-ranking U.S. officials? Was it not Bill Clinton who took illegal campaign donations from Chinese interests? Was it not George W. Bush who ignored the Saudi government’s links to 9-11? Or Hillary Clinton who sold a significant portion of America’s uranium holdings to Russian interests? What of Barack Obama’s odd obsession with cozying up to the likes of “death to America” Iran?

And what if Donald Trump, a true outsider well beyond the control of the D.C. power structure, is viewed as a direct threat by the media and political elites, who might weaken or even cripple, their ongoing globalist cash cow? Would they not be motivated to destroy him?”

Box Office Poison: ‘Shock and Awe’ Is Director Rob Reiner’s 6th Mega-Flop in a Row

|| Breitbart

Shock and Awe director Rob Reiner has now directed six mega-flops in a row and has not had anything approaching a hit since 2007.

This weekend, Reiner’s Shock and Awe crashed and burned at the box office. For some reason, even though it is 2018, Reiner is still wasting millions of dollars to attack former President George W. Bush. This, even after every single movie attacking Bush bombed.

What’s more, as if to prove just how insulated he is from real America, Shock and Awetries to make heroes of journalists, a group currently enjoying approval ratings little better than child molesters.

.. ..

To be clear, I am not qualifying a box office “disappointment” or an “under-performer” as a mega-flop.  Reiner has not only not had a hit in 11 years, since 2007’s The Bucket List, everything he has directed has been a box office catastrophe.

In 2010, Reiner directed the $14 million Flipped — it grossed less than $2 million. That is not a typo — less than TWO million dollars. Things got a lot worse two years later.

Despite the presence of Morgan Freeman and a budget of just $5 million, The Magic of Bell Isle, which Reiner both wrote and directed, lost every penny due to a — and again this is not a typo — gross of just $102,388.

In 2014, with no less than Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton on the poster, And So It Goes bottomed out in wide release (1762 theaters) with just $15 million domestic, which did not even cover its $18 million production budget. Add at least as much for publicity, and you are talking about a $20 million loss.

Reiner’s Being Charlie performed so poorly in May of 2016, it never expanded beyond 14 screens and managed to only gross $30,400.”

Illegal Alien Deported 11 Times Tries to Murder Wife with Chainsaw | July 16 2018

California man arrested for attacking wife with chainsaw was deported 11 times

|| U-T San Diego

“A California man arrested for allegedly attacking his wife with a chainsaw was deported 11 times, authorities said.

Alejandro Villegas, 32, allegedly used a chainsaw to attack his wife in their Whittier home before fleeing in a stolen SUV on Wednesday, police said.

Whittier police responded to an attempted murder call at 3 p.m. and found Villegas’ wife “suffering from traumatic physical injuries” possibly caused by a chainsaw, police said.

Their three kids were home at the time.

The mother was taken to a trauma center where she underwent surgery, a police spokesman said , adding she’s expected to survive.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lori Haley said Villegas is a “serial immigration violator” who had been deported 11 times since 2005. ICE did not reveal his country of origin.

Any undocumented person with a criminal background who reenters the United States illegally could face up to 20 years in federal prison, according to ICE.

Immigration officials lodged a detainer against Villegas and asked local authorities to notify ICE before releasing him so they could arrest him, Haley said.

ICE didn’t mention his criminal record, but the Los Angeles Times reported he pleaded no contest to a drug charge and being intoxicated in 2013. He also pleaded no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or over later that year.

Villegas was on the run and described as “armed and dangerous” before cops arrested him in Chula Vista near the Mexican border on Thursday. Police recovered the chainsaw.

Villegas was booked in Whittier City Jail on charges of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto.”

Tijuana Resident Impersonated U.S. Citizen to Steal $361,000 in Government Benefits

|| Breitbart

“A Mexican citizen living in Tijuana with 40 aliases was sent to U.S. prison after admitting he assumed an American identity to collect almost $361,000 in government benefits fraudulently.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California announced that Andres Avelino Anduaga, a Mexican citizen living in Tijuana, had admitted to obtaining a valid birth certificate of a United States citizen fraudulently in 1980, and then obtaining a valid California Driver’s License and a Social Security card.

Anduaga used the stolen identity of Abraham Riojos, a U.S. citizen from a rural Florida town, to apply for and collect Social Security disability benefits beginning in 1989. Over the next 27 years, Anduaga collected $244,441 in monthly Social Security benefits, and another $100,000 in Medi-Cal health benefits from the State of California.

Anduaga also admitted that he was a convicted U.S. felon under the name “Jose Reyes” who had been deported from the U.S. at least twice, including 1994 and 2000.

Despite his fingerprints and photo being on a criminal file with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Anduaga was able to use his stolen identity’s birth certificate to obtain a valid U.S. passport that allowed him to cross the Mexican-American border freely.

The investigation that eventually entrapped Anduaga began in 2014, when the Social Security office in Chula Vista alerted its Office of the Inspector General that private mailboxes near the border might have been be connected to residency fraud, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

During a standard Social Security benefits review in 2015, a man claiming to be Riojos was using residency address of a mailbox rental facility on San Ysidro Boulevard. When required to appear for an office interview, the individual presented a California ID card identifying himself as Riojos and claiming to rent a room from a Chula Vista man.

An investigator with the California Department of Health Care Services called the man during the Riojos interview,  andthe man confirmed the roommate situation. But when investigators visited the home in January 2016, the man admitted that Riojos had never lived there and was living in Mexico.

The Union-Tribune reported that a follow up investigation found that another person had tried to sign up for Social Security disability benefits in Oceanside, California, using a fake birth certificate with the same date and birthplace as the one for the Riojos name.

Further research found the initial man claiming to be Riojos had a criminal record under 21 aliases and six dates of birth stretching back to 1974, including gun violations, forgery, drug possession and multiple DUIs.

When the Social Security disability payments Anduaga was collecting were terminated in 2016, he signed up as Riojos and began receiving CalFresh Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits from San Diego County. Until being arrested in November 2017, Anduaga pocketed another $12,000 in CalFresh payments, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.”

FBI Agent Strzok Admits to Conspiracy | July 13 2018

Peter Strzok Admits Junk Russia Dossier Came from Nellie Ohr at Fusion GPS

|| TGP

“On Thursday disgraced FBI investigator Peter Strzok admitted during his congressional hearing that the phony Russia dossier was funneled through the FBI by Nellier and Bruce Ohr.

The junk dossier went from Fusion GPS and Glenn Simpson–> to Nellie Ohr at Fusion GPS–> to her husband Bruce Ohr at the DOJ –> walked over and fed to Peter Strzok at the FBI –> and this was the impetus for the entire Trump-Russia investigation!

And it was all paid for by the Clinton Campaign and DNC!

This was the basis for the Trump-Russia collusion investigation.
It was all a Democrat Party operation.

It all make sense now.”

California ‘Sanctuary’ Status in Initiative Cross Hairs for 2020 Ballot | July 10 2018

California Ballot Initiative to Reverse ‘Sanctuary State,’ Undocumented Immigrant Driver’s License Laws Cleared to Collect Signatures

|| KTLA

“Proponents of a measure that would repeal California’s “Sanctuary State” law and reverse another law that allows undocumented immigrants in California to get a driver’s license have been cleared to gather signatures for a 2020 ballot initiative.

The proposal, called the “Children, Family and Community Protection Act,” would require cooperation between state and local enforcement in efforts to verify the immigration status of anyone who is arrested and suspected of being in the U.S. illegally, according to a summary on the California secretary of state’s website.

It would also prohibit local governments and police agencies from limiting cooperation with ICE and other federal authorities — something currently prevented in certain cases by California’s recently enacted Senate Bill 54, better known as the “Sanctuary State” law.

“To become a sanctuary state, we all felt was unwarranted when we have so many other issues to worry about — homelessness and all those other issues — and we’re focused on the lives of people who don’t even live in this country or want to enter illegally,” Ravi Mehta, who supports the ballot measure, told KTLA sister station KTXL in Sacramento.

The initiative also seeks to reverse another law, Assembly Bill 60, which allows anyone who cannot prove they are in the U.S. legally to get a California driver’s license using identification from their home country, according to KTXL.

They still, however, must show proof of California residency and pass the state’s written and driving tests.

Gov. Brown signed the law in 2013, but it didn’t go into effect until 2015.

As of April 2018, the DMV has issued driver’s licenses to more than a million undocumented immigrants, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Supporters of AB 60 pushed for the law as a safety measure, arguing that many immigrants were already getting behind the wheel, but the lack of training and testing required of other drivers were making the roads less safe.

Opponents of the proposed ballot measure, however, say that the law makes it more difficult to determine whether someone is in the country illegally.

“The line that AB 60 will make the roads safer was totally bull,” Don Rosenberg, who submitted the amended version of the initiative, said in an interview with the Sacramento Bee. “It is not safer. It was a complete lie.”

Rosenberg, a Westlake Village resident, has been a vocal opponent of illegal immigration since one of his sons was struck and killed by an undocumented immigrant in 2010, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He believes the law will improve overall public safety and reduce the number of traffic-related fatalities, the Bee reported.

The initiative would also prohibit automatic voter registration in the state, something Rosenberg thinks can help prevent voter fraud.

One opponent of the ballot initiative is Los Angeles City Councilman Gil Cedillo, who expressed support in the fight to preserve AB 60.

“The loss of Don Rosenberg’s son is unfortunate, but we cannot blame an entire class of motorists for it,” Cedillo said in an emailed statement. “California is a leader for immigrant protections, as is evidence by the numerous laws we’ve enacted and the lawsuits filed against ICE. We must stop politicizing immigration issues for political gain, like we have done with DACA, DAPA and the separation of families.”

The councilman added, “It is Mr. Rosenberg’s right to collect signatures for this initiative, but I advise him not to poke the hornet’s nest.”

Supporters have until Dec. 19 to gather nearly 366,000 signatures in order to qualify the measure for the November 2020 ballot.”

Vast Majority of U.S. Citizens Oppose ‘Sanctuary Cities’ | June 28

Americans Do Not Support Sanctuary Cities: 84% of Voters Want Illegal Aliens Turned Over to Authorities

|| TGP

“Democratic pollster Mark Penn, who served as chief strategist for Hillary Clinton‘s 2008 presidential campaign, said on Thursday that the overwhelming majority of Americans do not support sanctuary cities.

Appearing on The Hill TV, Penn asserted that 84 percent of Americans support turning illegal aliens over to federal agents.

“I asked them ‘do you think notifying ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street,’ and they overwhelming said ‘decrease crime,’” Penn told The Hill.

“When someone’s arrested, they expect someone will notify federal immigration authorities just as they would expect someone who violates state tax law,” the pollster said.”

Trump Travel Ban Upheld by U.S. Supreme Court | June 26

SUPREMES DEAL VICTORY FOR TRUMP, UPHOLD TRAVEL BAN

|| Daily Caller

“A five-justice majority of the U.S. Supreme Court upheld in full the latest iteration of President Donald Trump’s travel sanctions Tuesday.

The ruling was an unqualified victory for the Trump administration, after earlier variants of the entry ban were greeted with raucous airport protests and break-neck litigation that left the White House reeling.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the Court’s opinion, joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch.

“The president has lawfully exercised the broad discretion granted to him under [federal law],” Roberts wrote.

Speaking moments after the Court issued its decision, Trump said the ruling vindicates his immigration and national security priorities.

“The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the president to defend the national security of the United States,” he said. “In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country. This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country.”

“As long as I am president, I will defend the sovereignty, safety, and security of the American people, and fight for an immigration system that serves the national interests of the United States and its citizens,” he added.

The ban in its currents form was issued in September 2017. The administration assessed travel penalties against eight countries, who failed to satisfy basic vetting and information-sharing expectations.

A coalition of Democratic states and civil rights groups challenged the proclamation, making two basic arguments. They first alleged the sanctions exceeded Trump’s authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The INA, the plaintiffs said, only allows the president to ban the entry of a specific class of dangerous aliens for a limited time. It also provides that the president may not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or nationality when issuing visas.

Second, the challengers claimed that the order was issued to disparage Muslims, in violation of the First Amendment’s ban on religious favoritism in government policy.

The high court rejected both these positions. Roberts explained that the INA “exudes deference to the president in every clause,” meaning that courts should not second-guess Trump’s national security findings.

The law sets just one requirement for the president: he must formally determine that the entry of a certain class of aliens is detrimental to U.S. interests. The majority found the administration easily satisfied this demand, as Trump’s order is the most comprehensive proclamation ever issued under the INA.

“The 12-page proclamation — which thoroughly describes the process, agency evaluations, and recommendations underlying the president’s chosen restrictions — is more detailed than any prior order a president has issued under [the INA],” the chief wrote.

With respect to the constitutional argument, the Court similarly concluded that its review should be limited given the national security sensitivities the case involves.

The ruling also identifies what it sees as significant shortcomings of the plaintiffs’ First Amendment argument. Just eight percent of the world’s Muslim population is encompassed by Trump’s sanctions, Roberts noted, and the proclamation itself creates a waiver program open to all affected aliens. Moreover, certain nationals — like exchange students — from sanctioned countries are specifically exempted from the entry ban.

All told, the majority saw these features as incompatible with a supposed Muslim ban.”
