    According to Senator Ted Cruz, CNN’s threats to dox the Reddit user who created the Trump wrestling CNN video could be a violation of Georgia law. CNN discovered the identity of the Reddit user who made the video and essentially threatened to reveal his identity if he continued to post unsavory content. Cruz said if CNN tracked down the Reddit user through his IP address and then used that information to threaten him, they could be in violation of a Georgia law. CNN headquarters are located in Atlanta, GA. The GA Code explains that someone could be guilty of “Theft...

    So the real story is that CNN, which has thrown in with Al Jazeera, is the new tag team that will be going after the POTUS full force Reddit should be smelling a big rat by now. The stench is coming from something even more putrid than Fake News Central CNN trying to hide under the rug on their blackmail attempts against the Reddit user behind the gif of President Trump wrestling a CNN image superimposed on WWE founder Vince McMahon.

    Co-host of CNN’s “New Day” Chris Cuomo deleted a tweet Wednesday in which he proposed revealing the identity of the Reddit user who posted the CNN wrestling video of President Donald Trump. One Twitter user screen shot Cuomo’s tweet and criticized the co-host for trying to intimidate a teenager in order to suppress negative coverage of his home network. Why did @ChrisCuomo delete this tweet? Possibly because they found out it was 15 year old kid they are trying to extort. #CNNBlackmail pic.twitter.com/JfLWOI6bo4 — Mark M. (@mmontuori) July 5, 2017

    Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz even suggested on Twitter that CNN could have a legal problem. “Troubling. I assume CNN's lawyers are examining GA § 16-8-16 Theft by extortion. If CNN constructively obtained the gif-maker's IP...it's a GA crime if they threatened to ‘Disseminate any information tending to subject any person to hatred, contempt, or ridicule....’” he wrote.

    CNN, already down in the dumps about skewed coverage that led to the departure of three network news staffers, is now walking a Twitter hall of shame with a hashtag that showcases the company as less than honorable — as one and the same with, say, mobsters and the criminal underworld. #CNNBlackmail soared to the top of trending Twitter feeds in the United States, the somewhat predictable result of the company’s seeming foray into — well, blackmail. And of a private citizen, no less. Here’s what’s going on: Sunday, President Donald Trump linked a video in his tweet that showed...

    As America celebrated Independence Day, the Internet exploded following allegations that CNN threatened and coerced the Reddit user behind the popular Donald Trump/CNN Wrestling meme into silence for exercising his first amendment rights. In an article by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, it is detailed how Reddit user HanA**holeSolo “apologized for calls for violence against the press,” took down all his social media posts, begged for his identity not to be released an promised he wouldn’t engage in any similar behavior. The article noted that CNN agreed not to release his name, but “reserves the right to publish his identity should any...

    WASHINGTON – New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D), vice president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, described the group’s “collective opinion” on withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord as a “shortsighted political decision” that is going to “negatively impact” U.S. economic growth. Landrieu said that President Trump’s “America First” outlook, which fueled his decision to withdraw from the climate agreement, should not mean “America Only.” “Although we are spending a lot of time talking about ‘America First,’ while many of us may agree with that, it cannot be ‘America Only’ – the feeling about this is the decision to withdraw...

    Violence and intimidation against Republicans are quickly becoming the new normal in an increasingly tense political climate. In one of the most recent incidents, police in Tennessee charged a woman with felony reckless endangerment on Thursday for allegedly trying to run Republican Congressman David Kustoff off the road after a town hall. The woman, Wendi Wright, was reportedly enraged over Kustoff’s support for the American Health Care Act and screamed at the congressman and his aide, striking his car windows and reaching inside the vehicle.

    The European Union (EU) has dramatically increased the size of the “divorce” bill it is demanding the UK pays before leaving the bloc, to 100 billion euros. The new figure, equivalent Ł84.5 billion, reflects stricter demands made by Germany and France, in particular in relation to post-Brexit farm payments and EU administration fees, according to an analysis by the Financial Times. European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier have previously said the UK would be expected to pay around €60 billion (Ł50.75 billion). The British Government’s lawyers, however, and a House of Lords committee have said...

    Apple is reassuring customers that its systems have not been breached while a hacker, or hackers, threaten to remotely wipe hundreds of millions iPhones of all their data, including photos, videos, and messages. The hackers are using an alleged cache of stolen email accounts and passwords as leverage in an attempt to extort the world's most valuable company. They claim to have access to as many as 559 million Apple email and iCloud accounts, Vice blog Motherboard reported on Tuesday. The group, calling itself "Turkish Crime Family," said it would delete its alleged list of compromised login credentials only after...

    The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according to congressional investigators. “It’s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News. “The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.” Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism. “Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Judicial Watch’s...

    Extortion, loan-sharking and protection rackets are all part of the Mafia’s “Business Model”, it seems that the European Union has adopted this model in its Brexit negotiations with the U.K. After Jean Claude Juncker’s (President) announcement that Britain should pay 50 Billion Pounds to leave the EU club (family), is it any wonder that the Brits are starting to see the EU federalists as a “Godfatheresque” criminal organization.

    The Environmental Protection Agency has based its most onerous air pollution regulations on junk science meant to further political goals, says the author of a new book. Lawyer-statistician Steve Milloy’s new book, “Scare Pollution,” shows readers how EPA has distorted the science behind air pollution regulations to hamper politically incorrect industries, from coal to logging to manufacturing. “I have worked on EPA science controversies for 25 years,” Milloy told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “EPA doesn’t use science so much as it abuses it for its political ends.” Milloy is referring to EPA regulations that rely on the shaky claim...

Breitbart Editor-in-Chief and SiriusXM host Alex Marlow described the report as exposing the Justice Department of “quite literally extorting companies to fund left-wing activists.”

    A new report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) concludes that the Obama administration’s Department of Justice has been extorting fines from major banks, which are then used to fund leftist groups that push the Democratic vote. The report notes that while community organizing groups have been using aggressive, “terrorist” tactics for decades to force banks to provide funding for their operations, the Obama administration has brought the power of the federal government to bear on their behalf. Banks are threatened with lawsuits for racial discrimination based on the controversial “disparate impact” theory, and offered incentives to settle by paying left-wing groups directly, beyond the...

    Jose Rodriguez-Nunez, a 27-year-old illegal alien gang member who also went by “Killer,” just pled guilty in federal court to racketeering crimes and participating in the murder of a 14-year-old Maryland boy. From a Justice Department press release: According to his plea agreement, beginning in 2010, Rodriguez-Nunez conspired with members and associates of MS-13 to engage in crimes to further the interests of the gang, including murder, assault, robbery, extortion by threat of violence, obstruction of justice, witness tampering and witness retaliation.  Specifically, Rodriguez-Nunez admitted to his role as the driver in a drive-by shooting on Dec. 5, 2012, in which...

    Nations around the world reject its eco-terrorism tactics. Governments and courts around the world are finally cracking down on the eco-terrorist organization Greenpeace. The crackdown, which is long overdue, couldn’t happen to a more misguided bunch of people. In early December 2014, more than 20 Greenpeace activists damaged a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a publicity stunt meant to motivate greater government support for renewable-energy sources they think are necessary to battle supposed human-caused climate change. The activists walked into a “strictly prohibited” area where the Nazca Lines are located in Peru and laid big, yellow cloth letters...
