Breaking: How the Nunes Memo Cherry Picked Information

First, let’s ignore that Devin Nunes just said he actually never read the FISA warrant and then wrote a memo on it. Both Republicans and Democrats are saying by disclosing classified information, Trump had “sent his friend Putin a bouquet,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired last year, said the memo doesn’t add up to much.

“That’s it?” he said on Twitter.

Comey called the memo “dishonest and misleading” and not worth the damage it’s done to public trust in U.S. intelligence agencies.

U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the chairman of the House committee, said he hoped the release “will shine a light on this alarming series of events” and spur “reforms that allow the American people to have full faith and confidence in their governing institutions.”

Democrats on the House Judiciary committee also said House Republicans are “accomplices” to obstruction of justice.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff  of California, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, tweeted his thoughts on Friday: “The country’s top elected leader has agreed to selectively and misleadingly release classified info to attack the FBI — that’s what would have been unthinkable a short time ago.”

Earlier this week, the FBI said it had “grave” concerns about the memo and that it included inaccurate and misleading information.

The memo claims a group that includes former FBI Director James B. Comey, his former deputy Andrew McCabe, former deputy attorney general Sally Yates and current Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein approved court surveillance requests that left out key facts about why a former intelligence officer from Britain supplied the information, the Washington Post reported.

The memo says the former agent, Christopher Steele, “was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines as the most serious of violations — an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI,” the Post reported.

Thomas O’Connor, president of the FBI Agents Association, staunchly defending the federal law enforcement arm in a statement released Friday: “the men and women of the FBI put their lives on the line every day in the fight against terrorists and criminals because of their dedication to our country and the Constitution. The American people should know that they continue to be well-served by the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency. FBI Special Agents have not, and will not, allow partisan politics to distract us from our solemn commitment to our mission.”

NRA’s Chris Loesch Tried to Get Me Fired from My Job

You can’t make this up: Chris Loesch of the NRA called up the US Secret Service and tried to get me fired from my job, because I criticized the NRA and his wife for being hypocrites.

Seriously — he actually has been calling the Secret Service up over and over again looking to get me fired. I’m not sure why, as a private citizen that like millions of other people that dislike the NRA, I am a target.

Here’s the problem: I haven’t worked as a consultant for the Secret Service in 20 years, and no longer have anything to do with them whatsoever. Calling them up is only going to annoy them, because I’m neither an employee or contractor.

Still, it raises questions why Chris Loesch would target me of all the people out there to get “fired” from his job? I can only assume its because I’m a visible progressive Jew and he’s such a snowflake that he needs to threaten people with exposure to get his way.

However, this is what the NRA does: they threaten people with violence and exposure to hurt them on a day to day basis. That’s when they aren’t molesting their own kids.

Facebook and Apple have removed content belonging to controversial radio host Alex Jones.

Jones’ pages were removed from Facebook for “repeatedly posting content over the past several days that breaks” community standards, including urging his followers to harass and illegally threaten minor victims of violent shootings,

“All four pages have been unpublished for repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes,” a Facebook post said. The four pages were Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the InfoWars Page and InfoWars Nightly News page. Jones himself was placed on a 30-day block for his role in posting the content.

Facebook said the violations included posts that glorified violence and others that used dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants. Jones is able to appeal the ban but if he doesn’t or those efforts fail, the pages will be removed permanently.

The pages have more than 2.5 million followers.

The Facebook ban comes after Apple, YouTube and Spotify removed Jones’ podcast and videos from their platforms. Apple’s decision removed five of Jones’ six podcasts, including “The Alex Jones Show.”

Jones is known for promoting a host of conspiracy theories, most noticeably one that claims the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was fake and those involved were actors. Families in the massacre that claimed the lives of 20 young children have filed defamation lawsuits against Jones.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers barricaded an employee and visitor entrance Wednesday to prevent activists from performing an “occupation” of the agency’s D.C. headquarters.

Several dozen activists had intended to enter the building to protest Trump administration deportation and border detention policies, but arrived to find temporary fencing and a line of officers blocking their way.

Amid heavy rain, activists chanted slogans anyhow, including “quit your jobs!” at Department of Homeland Security guards and ICE employees who peered from windows.

The protest was organized by Movimiento Cosecha and was advertised in a press release as a demonstration by “undocumented activists and allies,” as similar protests occur in other cities.
