[The Hill] A former FBI intelligence officer said Thursday that combating right-wing extremism and white nationalism poses a serious challenge for security officials going into 2020.
"If you want intelligence to be good on the current wave of domestic terrorism ‐ what people call right-wing extremism, Neo-Nazi extremism ‐ I don’t think people realize how tough that target is," Philip Mudd, who is now a counterterrorism analyst, told Hill.TV in response to a question about how security officials should prepare for the future.
"It’s dispersed, that’s people in every state, but it’s also a civil liberties issue," he added.
Mudd said the first step towards combating white nationalist-fueled violence is re-evaluating the nation's political rhetoric.
"Either side of the political spectrum, you cannot validate their anger," he said in reference to members who identify as part of the Neo-Nazi movement.
"You can’t even get close to saying it’s appropriate to look at a foreigner in this country or an immigrant or an asylum seeker and say that person is less than you," he added. "It’s not a political statement, it’s what I saw with Al-Qaeda."
Mudd also said lawmakers need to take congressional action against homegrown hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan.
"That means laws that say, ’hey, groups that committed acts of violence ‐ how about the KKK, you want to go after them? They’ve committed acts of violence for political reasons ‐ that’s terrorism," he said. "The politicians have to provide cover."
The mass shooting in El Paso, Texas has renewed calls to address the rise of domestic terror attacks. Federal authorities believe the suspected shooter, who killed 22 people, was motivated by hatred of Hispanics and immigrants.
[WND] Christopher Steele is known as the author of the infamous, debunked "dossier" that was used by the Obama administration to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
Soon, the public may know a lot more about the former British spy’s relationship with the FBI.
That’s after a federal judge ordered the bureau to search its records for its communications with Steele after the bureau fired him as a confidential source.
U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper said "the potential for illuminating the FBI’s activities is not too difficult to discern."
"Communications post-dating Steele’s time as an informant might reveal a great deal about why the FBI developed him as a CHS [confidential human source], his performance as a CHS, and why the FBI opted to terminate its relationship with him."
The judge said the records "might either bolster or weaken Steele’s credibility as a source."
"That information, in turn, could provide a basis on which to evaluate the FBI’s performance of its law-enforcement duties, including its judgment in selecting and relying on confidential sources, especially in connection with such a politically sensitive subject," he said.
"Of course, the records Judicial Watch speculates about might not even exist ‐ and even if they do, they may not reveal anything significant about the FBI’s operations. But that they might do so makes them a matter of potential public interest."
Judicial Watch has been investigating the origins of the Obama administration investigation of alleged Trump-Russia collusion.
The ruling came in Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for records of communications and payments between the FBI, Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.
The court initially had allowed the government to say it couldn’t confirm or deny the records.
But last year, some government records were declassified that revealed Steele’s role as an FBI informant and his firing by the FBI in November 2016. So the Judicial Watch case was reopened.
[NYPOST] The head of the federal Bureau of Prisons was yanked from his post Monday ‐ a little over a week after the controversial death of wealthy pedophile Jeffrey Want Some Candy, Little Girl? Epstein ...A high class pimp financier who was alleged to maintain a stable of underage whoressex slaves who were paid big bucks to entertain the rich and/or famous. He is a registered sex offender and made att least 17 out-of-court settlements with former members of his stable, with some cases still ongoing. 2011 court docs reveal that 21 email addresses and phone numbers for Bill Clinton and an aide were found in Epstein's electronic black book, and that Clinton frequently flew with Epstein on his private plane between 2002 to 2005. But really, they were probably just discussing finance or politix or something. While getting massaged. Then things got serious, Jeff was tossed in the slammer in New York and then he killed himself. Really. That's what happened... in a Manhattan jail.
Acting BOP Director Hugh Hurwitz, who had been at the helm of the country’s prison system since last year, has been reassigned, US Attorney General William Barr said.
Barr did not say where Hurwitz will now be working but said the agency’s former director, Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, will succeed him at the helm. Sawyer served as the BOP’s director from 1992 to 2003, the AG said in a statement.
Barr has already launched a federal probe into Epstein’s death, which was ruled a suicide by hanging by the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office last week.
[BREITBART] Twenty-eight individuals were shot, five fatally, over the weekend in Democrat-controlled reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown ...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel... NBC Chicago reports the first of the weekend’s fatalities was a double murder that occurred in a shooting around 4 pm Friday. The fatality occurred Sunday evening, when a 41-year-old man was shot twice and killed on South Crilly.
Earlier Sunday a 46-year-old woman was shot and killed while "driving southbound in the 5100 block of South Prairie." The other shooting fatality occurred around 4 am Saturday, when a 45-year-old man driving a car was shot by a man who was standing on the sidewalk.
Breitbart News reported that 47 people were shot, four fatality, in Chicago over the weekend of August 9-11, 2019.
Fifty-three individuals were shot, seven killed, in Democrat-controlled Chicago during the first weekend of August and 48 were shot, nine fatally, during the last weekend of July.
Rep. Pete King (R-NY) is supporting the Democrats’ "assault weapons" ban in order to get rid of what he refers to as "weapons of mass slaughter." The Frog
The New York Daily News quoted King saying, "They are weapons of mass slaughter." He added, "I don’t see any need for them in everyday society."
The Democrats’ "assault weapons" ban is sponsored by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), and has the support of nearly 200 Democrat Representatives.
On August 14, Breitbart News reported that the "assault weapons" push became central for Democrats after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) signaled his willingness to take up gun control when the Senate reconvenes in September. McConnell said that universal background checks will probably "lead the discussion," but he also said an "assault weapons" ban would be front and center.
King has been focused on background checks but recent events renewed his focus for an "assault weapons" bill. He said, "I think the assault weapons ban is timely now, especially in view of the shooting in El Paso and Dayton."
[Gateway Pundit] Hillary fired back at President Trump Monday afternoon over his allegation that Google manipulated the 2016 election in Crooked’s favor.
President Trump on Monday morning said Google should be sued for manipulating millions of votes in Hillary Clinton’s favor during the 2016 election.
"Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!" Trump said in a tweet Monday morning.
According to the newly released Senate report, Dr. Robert Epstein, a psychologist, author and professor, Google manipulated at least 2.6 million — and upwards of 10+ million votes in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Dr. Epstein, an admitted liberal and very vociferous supporter of Hillary Clinton, said that Google and other tech billionaires will ramp up in 2020 and make sure all hands are on deck to stop Trump from winning the election.
Hillary responded to Trump on Twitter and said, without offering any evidence, that the study has been “debunked.”
Hillary then bragged about how many people in Trump’s campaign have been indicted — they were all indicted based on a fraudulent dossier that Hillary Clinton paid for.
In the lefts mind she is the only one who can beat Trump.Watch how suddenly her like minded others drop out at first slowly and then suddenly because of some sort of serious if not fatal accident. Fear will do its work at first. The media will fawn over her.
At this point, to keep her viable (in the scientific sense) she probably has to stay in a hyperbaric chamber when not doing staged "appearances." (Anyone actually seen her lately? Just askin') As I recall, the specialists on that sort of treatment used to work for Michael Jackson (oops!)

Ideally, the people who are still "with her" need to graft here head onto a healthy body ASAP. Their dream body donor (for bumper sticker appeal) would be the Moochelle Michael, but then they'd need to get the wookie's head into one of those Futurama jars until Swil's head was done with the body...

Ginsberg and Hillary live as Davros twin horrors.
The White House is no longer having daily press conferences.
Trump is having long press conferences with the media every day now. And he is fantastic. Trump is going into great detail with every question asked. It helps that CNN/Playboy reporters are not there any more.
[NYPOST] Elizabeth Being Native American has been part of my story since the day I was born Warren ...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless... admitted Monday that she had "made mistakes" regarding her claims of Native American ancestry ‐ which led to President Trump dubbing her "Pocahontas."
"Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes," the Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate said at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa, without specifying exactly what she was apologizing for. "That DNA thing, ferinstance"
"I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations we have had together," she said.
Warren was slammed earlier this year when she announced test results that showed she had a fractional amount ‐ between 1/64 and 1/1028 ‐ of Native American ancestry.
She has apologized repeatedly for saying she identified herself as a Native American based on "family lore."
The commander-in-chief has repeatedly bashed her for the claim.
"I did the Pocahontas thing. I hit her really hard and it looked like she was down and out but that was too long ago," Trump said last week at a MAGA rally in New Hampshire.
Shouldn't she account for the fraud ? Impersonating and bluffing her way to candidacy, like those runaway girls who pose as Arab princesses, take joy rides in Ferraris, and leave hotels with hundred K bills.
She's a con-woman. Plain and simple. Everybody should highlight that fact. And everyone stupid enough to share a dais with her is too dumb to be trusted with power.
The white privilege of taking a designated position by flaunting fake minority status to appeal to the bigotry of other privileged whites in the selection process. Diversity makes us strong (at manipulating a rigged system).
Why doesn’t any report ask her- if you had not lied about your lineage, could you have had the opportunities that put you before us now? Or- is there a way possible to apologize to those deprived the opportunities you expropriated?

Sweetheart, your 'mistake' was no mistake: it was how you scammed your way into a high 6-figures tenured law professor gig at Harvard.
If you were really contrite, you'd have long ago resigned the post you obtained under false pretenses and given back your ill-gotten gains.
Get lost, scam artist.
My God, what despicable creatures we have, shitting up our political landscape.
