    I took this as a threat, as did many others on Twitter. Reported to Secret Service, FBI, DOJ etc. Not sure how to post properly (after all these years) but here goes "Seems like those “unnamed sources peddling second-hand hearsay with rank speculation that continue to leak inaccurate information,” came straight from 1600 Penn. Jared better start wearing his kevlar on his back."

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly threatened to subpoena the text messages and tweets of the Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee if they continued investigating the Justice Department’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. So far the establishment media is ignoring the story. But, this could be the most important story of 2018. If Rosenstein admits this he must be removed from his job. If one or more members of the committee verify this report on the record, and Rosenstein denies it, Attorney General Session will have no choice but to launch an in-depth investigation and suspend Rosenstein...

Holder issued his threat in a tweet Wednesday morning. “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned:any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party,” Holder tweeted.

    For over six decades Camp Solomon Schechter alongside the Placid shores of Lake Joshua Stamper has been the gateway to Judaism and love of Israel for generations of young Jewish campers in the Pacific Northwest. For some Schechterites though, their blissful camp experience was jarred late last week by the raising of the Palestinian flag over the storied campgrounds. An email sent by the camp administration acknowledged the incident this past Friday, describing it as one designed to “help develop empathy” and a “teachable moment”. Whatever the intent, the raising of the Palestinian flag over the camp was unexpected and...
