    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 5/22/2020 | SUNDANCE
    On the topic of the FBI capture and use of the December 29, 2016, Flynn-Kislyak phone call… First we had a hunch; then it became a suspicion… that evolved into a likelihood… that has now become a strong probability. The capture of the December 29th phone call, which generated the raw “CR cuts“, was an FBI summary, modified for a specific interpretation. Much like the missing 302 there is now a very strong probability the FBI ‘CR cuts’ do not represent the actual call content. In this short interview segment Trey Gowdy alludes to one issue, and speaks directly to...

    While writing in an op-ed with Republican representative Andy Biggs in the USA Today, Republican Senator Rand Paul unloaded on director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci, accusing him of destroying the medical care system and ruining the economy. Paul and Biggs did admit that they appreciate Fauci's professional medial opinion however they came down hard on him for his weak and inaccurate coronavirus models including one that said 2.2 million people may die from the virus in the United States. “Fauci and company have relied on models that were later found to be...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | May 22, 2020 | William A. Jacobson
    DOJ has filed a Statement of Interest in an Illinois case challenging more general restrictions imposed by Governor J.B. Pritzker. The DOJ position is that the Governor’s last minute removal of the case from state to federal court, on the eve of a decision in state court, was improper. You can read the state court pleadings and motion papers here...DOJ’s involvement is helpful, but the more important aspect of the case is how the Governor feared a negative state court decision so he pulled the case, likely improperly, up to federal court at the last minute. An Emergency Motion to...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WLS) -- The Illinois Senate passed a bill expanding vote by mail for the 2020 election Friday. The bill will automatically send an application for a vote-by-mail ballot to any person who has voted in the past two years, in the 2018 general election, the 2019 consolidated election or the 2020 primary election. Anyone who registered to vote after the 2020 primary will also receive an application for a vote-by-mail ballot. The bill also declares Election Day, November 3, 2020, a state holiday. House and Senate committees debated the bill Thursday, but Republicans raised concerns. "We've tripled the...

    Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed another Executive Order extending Michigan’s stay-home order until June 12. “While the data shows that we are making progress, we are not out of the woods yet. If we’re going to lower the chance of a second wave and continue to protect our neighbors and loved ones from the spread of this virus, we must continue to do our part by staying safer at home,” said Governor Whitmer. “If we open too soon, thousands more could die and our hospitals will get overwhelmed. While we finally have more protective equipment like masks, we can’t run...

    Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has his workers and businesses locked down for the foreseeable future. But the billionaire governor will not let the government imposed lock-down interfere with his own plans. Last week Pritzker also told CNN the citizens of Illinois may be forced to wear masks indefinitely. Earlier this week Governor Pritzker threatened business owners with a year in prison if they try to reopen. But the lock-down laws only apply to the rubes. They don’t apply to Governor Pritzker, a Democrat billionaire. In May, while he imposed lock-downs on the people of Illinois, he had his wife and...

    LEHI, UT—Popular for-profit genealogy company Ancestry.com has revoked the family heritage of any African American who says they would not vote for Joe Biden. The company said they made the changes to reflect prevailing social beliefs about race and culture. "It used to be if your ancestors were from Africa and your skin was a darker pigment, then you were considered black," said Ancestry spokesperson Sheila Reinold. "Times have changed. What really determines a person's blackness now—beyond genes, DNA, family trees—is Joe Biden. Any other determiner of race is pure malarkey at this point." A frustrated Ancestry.com customer, Brian Jennings...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio insists city businesses forced to close because of the coronavirus outbreak are doing just fine and will be able to stay shuttered for months to come — despite a new report that found the Big Apple’s private sector has shed one in four jobs. “I’ve talked to lots and lots of business leaders, especially the smallest businesses. They’re very worried about their futures understandably, but they also are hanging on and they know it can be a matter of months until they’ll be back in action,” de Blasio said. A caller from Brooklyn urged Hizzoner to...

    Unidentified vandals broke into the Church of Saint-Jean-des-Cordeliers in southwest France Tuesday and jimmied open the tabernacle to steal the consecrated hosts. According to the attentive folks at L’Observatoire de la Christianophobie, the vandals broke into the church, located in the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne region, sometime in the afternoon, and stole both the hosts and the ciboria (covered metal vessels) that held them. The theft of consecrated hosts often occurs in conjunction with Satanism, since the Satanic rite called a Black Mass is performed using the consecrated bread, which Catholics believe to be the body of Jesus...

    The Saint Catherine Church in the small town of Moria on Lesvos, is now being used as a bathroom. A local in Moria described the scene. “The smell inside is unbearable,” said Makis Pavlellis, a butcher. “Discussing with people about the Church, we learned that the metropolitan of Mytilene is aware of the situation in the area nevertheless he does not wish to deal with it for his own reasons.” Only earlier this month Greek City Times reported that the Saint Catherine church in Moria was already trashed by illegal immigrants. This is only the latest incident and rather it...

    A probe by the Department of Education into colleges that accept foreign investments and donations has uncovered $6 billion in previously unreported foreign donations from US adversaries including China and Russia. House Republicans were monitoring the investigation into the schools to determine if they were violating Section 117 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which prohibits an “Institution of Higher Learning” from failing to properly report foreign gifts of $250,000 or more. In a letter from the department, general counsel Reed Rubinstein said that while some colleges recognized that foreign cash from US adversaries could pose a security risk,...

    Alleges a right-wing conspiracy at workCOLOGNE, Germany (ChurchMilitant.com) - A leftist Vatican expert is alleging that one-third of Catholic clerics are against Pope Francis, even working to incite a "cultural war" to undermine the pontiff's influence. "You shouldn't underestimate that [number], it's just the tip of an iceberg," Marco Politi, former Vatican correspondent for the Italian newspaper La Repubblica said in an interview with Domradio.de, the media station of the archdiocese of Cologne. "It is not a minority," Politi said. "I would estimate that 30% of the clergy, the committed laity and bishops of the world church are on this...

    A San Diego federal judge Friday dismissed a $10 million defamation lawsuit filed by the owners and operators of San Diego-based One America News Network against MSNBC and political commentator Rachel Maddow. Last summer, the liberal host told her viewers that the Trump-friendly conservative network “really literally is paid Russian propaganda.” U.S. District Judge Cynthia Bashant dismissed Herring Networks’ suit with prejudice, ruling “there is no set of facts that could support a claim for defamation based on Maddow’s statement,” made during a July 22, 2019, segment of her show. Robert Herring Sr., the 78-year-old owner and founder of the...

    Government Accountability Institute Research Director Eric Eggers, author of Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election, says the city of Detroit, Michigan has at least 30,000 more registered voters on their voter rolls than citizens even eligible to vote. This week, Michigan’s Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson, announced that the state would send absentee ballot applications — not actual absentee ballots — to 7.7 million voters. In response, President Trump threatened to withhold funding from the state. In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Eggers said ineligible voters could end up receiving mail-in ballots...

    Democrat Ralph Northam invoked executive privilege to initially block release of travel dates but relented on appeal. On a Saturday night in the dead of August last year, Virginia taxpayers footed the bill as a state-operated plane roared from Richmond to one of North Carolina’s desirable beach destinations. The King Air 350 turboprop made the journey twice in six hours. The VIP passengers? Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and his wife, Pamela, the first lady of Virginia. The listed purpose for a back-and-forth jaunt? The Northams took a brief break Aug. 31, 2019 from their Outer Banks beach vacation home in...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) pushed back against President Trump’s claims that voting by mail disadvantages Republicans, noting that large numbers of voters in Utah, a Republican stronghold, vote by mail. "In my state, I'll bet 90 percent of us vote by mail. It works very, very well and it's a very Republican state," Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday, according to ABC News. Much of the Western U.S. has voted by mail for years, and a poll released Wednesday found residents of those states are among the demographics most likely to say they would prefer to vote by mail...
