    Iranian Shiite militias expand jihad; take control of U.S. tanks in Iraq
    March 7, 2018 by Christine Douglass-Williams

    U.S. manufactured tanks have reportedly ended up in the arsenal of fighters from an umbrella organization of mostly Iran-allied Shiite militias in Iraq that have expressed hostility towards troops from the United States

      At the Daily Mail link, photo of the beautiful $600,000 house of the deceased. Must have been something a little higher up in the organization… or inherited wealth or something?

      Reported as domestic violence. One of the comments asks “if the husband shot himself twice in the back of the head like so many others lately”

      I dunno. Domestic violence happens. But you have to wonder given the FBI lately

    Afternoon fellow Incorrigible Deplorables.
    Went slumming today, found a Gowdy nugget.

    Gowdy was interviewed on Conspiracy Nutter TV today, and Gowdy actually had a good interview w/a fellow South Carolinian.

    At 03:37 the actor asks Gowdy if Congress could not give IG Horowitz subpoena power.
    Gowdy explains the House had tried this before and the bill was stopped in the Senate.

    —>>>At 03:45 Gowdy says he is now working w/IG Horowitz to obtain subpoena power for the IG. Just like Chairman Goodlatte did when the DOJ blocked the IG from overseeing DOJ Nat’l Security Division.

    Seems Gowdy has gone full Tea Party, now that he is leaving Congress. Better late than never. 7 min 46 sec

    Time for us to contact our Senators and Representatives.

      Where do you get the notion that liberals are waking up from that article? It claimed that “Americans” are waking up. There are an awful lot of Americans that are not Trump supporters but are not liberals either. Black and Hispanic Americans vote mostly democrat but are socially quite conservative for the most part, particularly the older generation. Also many blue collar dems are not particularly liberal. It is more likely that they are may be waking up than liberals. Just my opinion.

      This is really the single biggest issue, because no matter what happens with the number of legal and/or illegal immigrants, legal residents, etc., they are all out -producing American citizens, and by a wide margin. Rewarded with American citizenship, and thereby many social/economic/educational/etc. benefits, they ARE replacing our population. What difference if the DACAs are deported if they have already contributed to the population of people here who do not know or understand or appreciate or wish to perpetuate our system of government?

    Results of the Texas races from a Texas perspective, very interesting:

    From my perspective, the less Ted Cruz talks the better, cannot stand his voice, and his opponent is very easy to listen to. Cruz ought to rely on improving economics and stopping the illegal invasion, an issue on which most nominally rational Americans actually agree.

      • I can’t stand looking at him – Herman Munster – did I get that right…Herman? Interesting article by a neurologist:

        Neurologist explains why it’s hard to look at Ted Cruz’s creepy ‘unsettling’ face

        “As he has risen in the polls, more attention is being paid to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s overall electability as a man who looks, as one fellow Princeton classmate described him: “about as telegenic as an undertaker.”

        The answer as to why so many people dislike the Texas Republican instinctively is one that intrigued Dr. Richard E. Cytowic, a professor of neurology at George Washington University.

        Writing in Psychology Today, Cytowic noted that Cruz’s “atypical expressions” left him “uneasy,” and that he was not alone among people who have watched Cruz up-close and from afar.

        “Note how many colleagues and former associates ‘loathe’ him. A Bush alumnus told the New York Times’ Frank Bruni, ‘Why do people take such an instant dislike to Ted Cruz? It just saves time.’ Former Senate Majority leader Bob Dole says, ‘Nobody likes him,’ while Rep. Peter King sees ‘malice.’” Cytowic wrote. “According to The Washington Post, screenwriter Craig Mazin, Cruz’s former Princeton roommate, has called him a ‘huge asshole,’ and ‘creepy.’ He’s Tweeted, ‘Getting emails blaming me for not smothering Ted Cruz in his sleep in 1988.’ The distaste for Cruz even extends beyond the US: Germans say Backpfeifengesicht, meaning a face in need of a good punch.”

      No Blue Texas Wave: Ted Cruz Received More Votes than Entire Democrat Turnout

      “U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) received more votes in the 2018 Republican Primary election than the entire turnout of voters in the Democratic Primary. The results shed a new perspective on the media-hyped “blue wave” stories from the weeks leading up to election day.

      In the Republican Primary of 2018, Senator Cruz received 1,317,450 votes in a race with four challengers. His Democrat opponent, U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke only received 641,311 votes against two opponents.

      Figures from the Secretary of State’s office show that just over one million voters turned out in the Democratic Primary in general across Texas. Cruz alone exceeded the entire Democratic voter turnout by nearly 300,000 votes.”

        March 7, 2018 at 9:00 pm

        […] No-one in media knew a thing about what Horowitz and his team were doing until Horowitz and his team decided to let them know. No-one was talking about the IG investigation until immediately AFTER Flynn took a plea deal -under false pretense- and the good-guys came forward with a continuous stream of day-in and day-out information.

        Bringing us to where we are today… and there’s still so much more to come.

        Ignore misinformation from people, in this example Byron York, who have not been paying VERY CLOSE granular attention to the nuance and detail. There is zero sunlight between the politicization investigation (the origin), and the weaponization investigation (the parallel investigative outcome).

        As soon as IG Horowitz discovered unlawful activity within the DOJ and FBI, he had an ethical and legal responsibility to take action. He was obligated to inform his DOJ boss.

        We all know when that moment was reached, but we can only see it in hindsight.

        In June/July 2017 when Horowitz informed Special Counsel Robert Mueller of the Page-Strzok text messages, that was the moment when the IG investigation shifted from looking at internal wrongful conduct to discovering an unlawful conspiracy.

        From that moment of unlawful discovery, the IG had a responsibility to report the illegal activity he and his team discovered. From that very moment DOJ leadership then initiated a parallel legal and prosecutorial authority to work hand-in-glove with Horowitz.

        Lemme unpack this for the reluctant/unable…

        “We all know when that moment was reached, but we can only see it in hindsight. In June/July 2017… From that very moment DOJ leadership then initiated a parallel legal and prosecutorial authority to work hand-in-glove with Horowitz.”

          So Sessions announces he has named an Investigaotr outside of Washingtom. How long has the investigator been working on the case?

          If the Investigator was just assigned the case yesterday or today how long will it take him to get up to speed?

          Why wait, if this is so important, of course to the our Nation it is, to announce the name of the investigator on the Shannon Bream show tonight at 11PM or whatever hour her show is on.

    Well, this is just special. I just received a spam email informing me that I can sign up to be a “USACITO Green Card Lottery Winner.”

    They explain:
    “The American Green Card Lottery Program also known as the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program was created by the U.S. government in order to diversify the population in the United States. This is accomplished by granting 55,000 Green Cards annually to countries that sent low amount of immigrants to the U.S. within the past 5 years.”

    And refer me to their website where they further explain:
    “Apply for the American Green Card Lottery with USACITO!
    The US Green Card Lottery Program is a matter of hope for all those who wish to achieve the dream of living in America. We provide assistance to clients worldwide to prepare and successfully submit their application in the DV Green Card Lottery Program.

    If you are currently experiencing low blood pressure, and need a significant increase, you can visit their website: The seem to be based out of Dallas TX.

    Afterthought: I looked up the term CITO (as in USACITO) expecting to find an Espanish translation. CITO is an acronym for “Cash In Trash Out.” Maybe they are being honest in this respect.

  31. Texas public school district in trouble…..

    “Amid accusations of “political advocacy” leveled against several Texas public school districts by Attorney General Ken Paxton, emails obtained from one jurisdiction under review highlight commentary advocating for political party switching in primary elections and the promotion of a single slate of candidates–all on an official communication network.

    Several Texas school districts recently came under fire over purported “political advocacy” campaigns involving the state’s March 6, 2018 primary election. Six days before early voting began, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton alleged these schools violated education and election codes.

    The Lewisville Independent School District was one of three that Paxton sent a cease and desist letter on February 14, accusing them of using taxpayer resources to distribute messages to staff that publicly advocated for or against certain political candidates and measures. Much of the controversy stemmed from a 2018 “Your Voice Matters” three-minute primary campaign video that appeared on the school district’s social media platforms. It featured Superintendent Kevin Rogers.”
