Was Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton treasonous? Yes, according to former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Bannon, who returned to the Breitbart news site after having been forced out of the White House in August, spoke on the record to media critic and Hollywood Reporter contributing editor Michael Wolff as part of Wolff’s highly anticipated new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, and didn’t hold back his criticism of the campaign and Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
“The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers,” Bannon told Wolff.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s—, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”
Billy Graham Hated Jews, Called Them Satanists
Billy Graham known for his anti-Semitic rants, but a strong supporter of Israel, has died.
Graham, 99, died at his home in Montreat, North Carolina, media reported. He was a counselor to Democratic and Republican presidents and, with his massive arena appearances, was a precursor of the Protestant televangelism that helped reshape the American religious and political landscapes. His son, Franklin, is one of President Donald Trump’s highest-profile religious supporters.
“A lot of Jews are great friends of mine,” Graham told Nixon in 1972. “They swarm around me and are friendly to me. Because they know that I am friendly to Israel and so forth. But they don’t know how I really feel about what they’re doing to this country, and I have no power and no way to handle them.”
Startling, too, is the information that continues to come out about the Rev. Billy Graham’s anti-Semitism, showing how he raised the subject of Jews with Nixon and commiserated with him about the ‘synagogue of Satan’ and Jews who promote pornography and obscenity. While never expressing these views in public, Rev. Graham unabashedly held forth with the president with age-old classical anti-Semitic canards.
The then-54-year-old evangelist referred to reports in newspapers detailing how Israeli leaders were “talking about expelling all Christians from Israel” and how Jewish leaders in America were “damning” Campus Crusade for Christ and other religious groups who were taking part in “KEY ’73,” a landmark, nationwide evangelistic effort that brought together 130 denominations, church bodies, and para-ecclesiastical groups.
Graham also said that the Jewish “stranglehold” on the media “has got to be broken or this country’s going down the drain.”
Later in the conversation, Graham talks about the “synagogue of Satan,” and how the Jews belong to it.
Kentucky District Goes Blue by 38% Margin
Democrat Linda Belcher has edged out her Republican challenger, Rebecca Johnson, in today’s race to represent Kentucky’s House district 49, flipping the Republican seat to Democratic control by a 38 percent margin. The seat was formerly vacated by Republican Dan Johnson, who committed suicide.
The Republican loss is all the more impressive considering Trump won the 49th district by a staggering 49 points during the 2016 presidential election, 72 percent to 23 percent. In total, Democrats have swung the district by an incredible 87 percent margin.
Tonight’s victory is only the latest in a wave of stunning Democratic success stories around the country. Thus far, Democrats have unseated Republicans in a vast number of what were thought to be unwinnable races. Aside from flipping New Jersey’s and winning Virginia’s gubernatorial races, Democrats also earned a historic victory electing Doug Jones to the Alabama Senate, the first time that a Democrat has won in that state in a quarter century.
Democrats have also picked up a slew of seats in other races around the country.
Since the beginning of 2017, Democrats have flipped 17 seats in special elections. Republicans have only flipped three. In total, Democrats have flipped 37 seats from red to blue since Trump’s inauguration. Even in solidly red districts, such as those in Oklahoma, South Carolina, Kansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, Florida, and now, Kentucky, Democrats are overperforming Trump’s numbers by double digits.
John Kelly Wants to Fire Dan Scavino for Failing Security Clearance
Dan Scavino, the White House Director of Social Media has not passed security clearance,because according to a source within the FBI, he is in severe debt, owing money to questionable sources that make him a target for blackmail and could betray the United States. John Kelly has asked that since Scavino has failed the security clearance that he should be immediately fired.
Scavino, who was Trump’s former caddy at one point, went bankrupt in 2015 and according to my source, has taken loans from his parents and other sources, including possible loan sharks that are in the hundreds of thousands, and possible over $1 million.
Debt always has been a major concern for the governent and the reason is obvious: Anyone delinquent in paying their bills could be desperate enough to take a bribe or kickback in exchange for passing along classified secrets.
Excessive indebtedness increases the temptation to commit unethical or illegal acts in order to obtain funds to pay off the debts. Most Americans who betrayed their country did it for financial gain—about half were motivated by a real or perceived urgent need for money and about half by personal greed.
