Former CIA Director Calls For A Coup If Trump Fires Mueller

The exchange is 43 minutes into the clip below:

by Tyler Durden

In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.

“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

(Full transcript here)

Brennan appeared alongside his former colleague, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and both men who served in the Obama administration, told Blitzer they have total confidence in Mueller. “Absolutely. It was an inspired choice- they don’t come any better, ” Brennan said adding that “If Mueller is fired, I hope our elected reps will stand up and say enough is enough.” Some have responded with questions where Brennan’s devotion to the Constitution was in the aftermath of the events in Benghazi.

Falling back on his neocon roots, James Clapper, who has waged a long-running vendetta with Trump, once again warned about Russian interference in US affairs. When asked about the June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort with a Russian lawyer and others, he responded: “I’m an old school, Cold War warrior and all that – so I have, there’s truth in advertising, great suspicions about the Russians and what they do. A lot of this to me had kind of the standard textbook tradecraft long deployed by Russians. It would have been a really good idea maybe to have vetted whoever they were meeting with.”

Clapper was also asked about Trump’s comparison of the intelligence community to Nazi Germany. Clapper said he called the President-elect nine days before he left the Obama administration saying he “couldn’t let that reference pass” and it was an insult to him, CIA Director John Brennan and the workforce. “That was a terrible, insulting affront, not just to me or John, we get paid the big bucks, but I’m talking about the rank and file, men and women, patriots and intelligence community — that was completely inappropriate and over the top – I had to do something about it.”

And so he did: on the call Clapper said Trump asked him to “to put out a statement rebutting the contents of the dossier which I couldn’t and wouldn’t do. It was kind of transactional” referring to a dossier that alleged ties between President Donald Trump‘s campaign and Russia. It was not clear if he wouldn’t and couldn’t do it because the contents were legitimate, in his view, or because the dossier is what started the whole “Russian collusion” narrative in the first place. Curiously, Clapper saw it as a favor to Trump not to issue a statement: Clapper was asked by Blitzer why he didn’t put out a statement replying: “The whole point of the dossier by the way was we felt an obligation to warn him to alert him to the fact it was out there. That was the whole point.”

It was not clear if James Comey, whose subsequent leak to the NYT led to the appointment of Mueller, would have applied the same reasoning when asked by Trump to rebut the dossier’s contents.

Korri Galbraith 

What really disgusts me about him is he constantly reminds them that HE felt no fear, so he deemed there was no reason to have law enforcement come in. He had no knowledge of what was happening on campus, as he was effectively held hostage. How did he know there weren’t groups like this all over the campus at the time? How did he know that he was the only person facing an encounter? He didn’t, he made a decision about himself that literally puts the entire campus at risk! It’s disgusting. Well, I don’t feel threatened if somebody says that they are going to shoot up the staff at evergreen and get in their truck and leave to do it. So I’m not calling the police. I don’t feel threatened when I see a rape, or a murder, or a robbery, or a physical attack. So we shouldn’t involve the police. Fuck everybody else, it’s all about me and my belief structure. I am in charge.

*(FROM THE RELIGION OF PEACE) – Knife-wielding man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ attacks Spanish police officers (VIDEO)

A knife-wielding man shouting “Allahu Akbar” has attacked police on the Spanish-Moroccan border, injuring an officer, according to Spanish authorities. The attacker was immediately arrested by Spanish law enforcement.

The incident took place at a border post between the Moroccan town of Beni Enzar and the Spanish-controlled city of Melilla on Tuesday, local media reported.

“A man entered the border post and once inside, pulled out a large knife and confronted [police] shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ [God is Great], slightly injuring a policeman,” Irene Flores, a spokeswoman for the Spanish government’s representative office in Melilla, told AFP.

A spokesman for Spanish police also confirmed the incident to the news agency.

Law enforcement have opened an investigation into the case. The nationality of the attacker has not yet been determined, according to local media.

However, Reuters reported that the attacker is believed to be a Moroccan citizen, citing a source from the local government.

Massachusetts can’t legally hold immigrants on ICE detainer requests – state court

The top court in Massachusetts has ruled that authorities have no right to hold an immigrant after they have been released for a crime. However, some on the federal level disagree.

*

The state’s Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) ruled Monday after the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement requested a court order that illegal immigrants facing deportation be held for up to 48 hours after their initial cases are resolved.

*

That amounts to a new arrest of a person, the state court found, which is not authorized by the laws of Massachusetts. This is the first ruling of this situation that applies to an entire state, according to Massachusetts’ attorney general, Maura Healey, Reuters reported.

The decision by the court cited states’ rights in their final decision in the case.

“Massachusetts law provides no authority for Massachusetts court officers to arrest and hold an individual solely on the basis of a Federal civil immigration detainer, beyond the time that the individual would otherwise be entitled to be released from State custody,” the court wrote, according to court documents.

Sreynuon Lunn, of Cambodia, was the focus of the case. Lunn entered the US in 1985 as a refugee, but was ordered to be deported in 2008 due to a slew of criminal convictions. His home country declined to accept him, and so he was ordered free. However, Lunn was arrested again in Boston in 2016 for unarmed robbery. Suffolk County prosecutors failed to present a case against him, and he was released into the custody of ICE, Reuters reported.

After being detained by the agency, Lunn’s attorney challenged the transfer to ICE custody because of the fact that Massachusetts law does not allow police to keep anyone in their custody who do not have any pending charges. The ruling on Monday states that neither the federal nor state law has the power, in Massachusetts, to hold a person without a criminal warrant.

“In short, this was a civil immigration detainer,” the justices wrote, according to the documents. “It alleged that Lunn was subject to, and was being sought by the Federal authorities for the purpose of, the civil process of removal. It was not a criminal detainer or a criminal arrest warrant. It did not allege that the Federal authorities were seeking Lunn for a criminal immigration offense or any other Federal crime, for purposes of a criminal prosecution.”

Capture

The US Department of Justice lawyers had previously stated in the case that ICE detainer requests are an established legal example of cooperation between federal and local law enforcement.

“You have that power,” Joshua Press, a DOJ attorney, said in April during oral arguments in the case, the Boston Herald reported.

The SJC did not agree with the assertions of the DOJ and stated that the state police may only make arrests for criminal offenses. “Conspicuously absent from our common law is any authority (in the absence of a statute) for police officers to arrest generally for civil matters, let alone authority to arrest specifically for Federal civil immigration matters,” the judges wrote.

Some civil rights groups say that this ruling in Massachusetts could potentially set an example for rulings in states around the country. The ACLU of Massachusetts responded in a statement after the trial’s conclusion.

“This court decision sets an important precedent that we are a country that upholds the constitution and the rule of law,” the group said in a statement. “This victory is the first of its kind in the nation. At a time when the Trump administration is pushing aggressive and discriminatory immigration enforcement policies, Massachusetts is leading nationwide efforts by limiting how state and local law enforcement assist with federal immigration enforcement.”

“POWERFUL”: HUFFINGTON POST CELEBRATES TRANSGENDER “MAN” WITH PERIOD-STAINED PANTS

‘Free-bleeding’ 4Chan troll adopted for real by leftists

 | Infowars.com – JULY 24, 2017

An absurd joke that started off as a 4chan troll – the depiction of women openly displaying their period-stained pants in the name of social justice – has actually been adopted for real by the left.

“Free-bleeding,” the practice of avoiding feminine hygiene products because they are an oppressive tool of the “patriarchy” and part of male “period-shaming,” began life as a hoax created by members of the notorious 4chan message board back in 2014.

4chan pranksters attempted to troll feminists by convincing them that displaying their period-sodden pants was making a stand for women’s liberation.

Over the course of the next 12 months, numerous progressives fell for it completely, embracing the sight of blood-soaked crotches as a social justice cause.

Fast forward to last week, when “transgender artist” Cass Clemmer, a biological female, posted a picture of him/herself wearing blood-stained pants while holding a sign that read, “Periods are not just for women. #BleedingWhileTrans.”

Capture

The Huffington Post celebrated the image by declaring it to be a “powerful attempt to broaden the cultural understanding of the different types of people who experience menstruation.”

According to HuffPo, the photo proves that “women aren’t the only ones who get periods.”

Capture

Given the fact that the individual in the photo is a woman and that there are only two genders (reference; science), yes it does prove exactly that.

The photo was also lauded by numerous other leftist publications like the IndependentMashable, and Allure.

The phenomenon is akin Poe’s law in reverse.

Poe’s law states that “it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated that it cannot be mistaken by some readers or viewers as a sincere expression of the parodied views.”

Only this time around, the left has actually embraced the parody and turned it into a genuine claim that women, and transgender biological males who identify as women, are oppressed because society thinks period stains are disgusting.

Period stains are disgusting. They are as disgusting as someone who has pissed their pants and is walking around in public flaunting the fact that they have pissed their pants.

Pretending that bodily functions necessitate a righteous social justice crusade cannot change the nature of reality. Sorry.

Oh yeah, and there are only two genders. That’s science. Deal with it.

FRENCH BUILD WALL TO STOP MIGRANT RESORT

Locals kept in dark about proposed migrant shelter

 | Infowars.com – JULY 24, 2017

French locals have built a wall around an abandoned hotel to stop its use as a proposed migrant resort.

The residents of the southwestern French town of Séméac erected a 60-foot-long, six-foot-tall wall to bar access to the former F1 hotel after they found out about the secret plan to turn it into a shelter for 85 migrants.

“We not against taking in migrants, but you have to take account of the citizens,” Séméac local Laurent Teixeira told media. “Nothing is planned for the migrants’ daily life.”

Officials tried to keep the public completely unaware of the migrant shelter, Teixeira added.

Overall, the French government has bought 62 hotels across France in an attempt to ship off migrants currently living on Paris streets into the rural countryside.

But the hotels may not be enough; the wave of economic migrants from Africa and the Middle East is increasing, and French officials seem unmotivated to stop the flood at the border.

Contrast that to Eastern Europe where governments are putting up electric fences to stop uncontrolled immigration, which Hungarian PM Viktor Orban said was a joint effort between George Soros and the EU to Muslimize Europe.

“We have to stand our ground against the Soros mafia network and the Brussels bureaucrats, and, during the next nine months, we will have to fight against the media they operate,” he stated.

Orban also warned the EU of using immigration as just one way to vassalize European nations.

“Unelected elites are bent on transforming Europe, against the clear will of most of the people,” he wrote in an op/ed. “…I am convinced that in Brussels and a few other European capitals, the political and intellectual elites are pitted against most of the people, who still nourish patriotic and commonsense sympathies.”

“The main threat to the future of Europe is not those who want to come here to live but our own political, economic and intellectual elites bent on transforming Europe against the clear will of the European people.”

ISLAMIST MIGRANT SET TO BE RELEASED FROM GERMAN PRISON DESPITE MAKING TERROR THREATS

His violent personality was made clear after police entered his cell last month and he viciously attacked them

By Chris Tomlinson

A 27-year-old Lebanese migrant is set to be released from prison in Berlin despite not only being a known radical Islamist but also threatening to carry out terror attacks once he gets out.

The man, who is classified as a dangerous Islamist, is approaching the end of a three and a half year term for robbery and now police say they will have to extensively monitor him upon release because he has threatened to carry out terror attacks. An official statement from the Berlin authorities says the Islamic radical will “use every opportunity for an attack on unbelievers after detention,” Die Welt reports.

Authorities suggest the 27-year-old was radicalised while serving his sentence, and already had a violent personality which made him “a threat to internal security in Germany and the people around him.”

His violent personality was made clear after police entered his cell last month and he viciously attacked them. He was given a further six-month term in prison for assaulting the officers.

The warning comes from data gathered from the man’s mobile phone last year, which showed he was in close contact to violent Islamists across Germany. He is also said to have written that “unbelievers” should be punished.

The German government have attempted to deport the man back to Lebanon but have been unsuccessful because he has no documentation. A government delegation attempted to travel to his home town of Sidon and obtain new papers, but the local authorities refused to issue them.

The man will likely be released in the coming months and police have already developed a plan to monitor him around the clock. He will not be allowed to use smartphones or computers or have any internet access. He will also be forced to wear an ankle monitor and report to a local police branch every day.

Radicalisation in prisons is becoming a real problem across many European countries with high Muslim populations. In France, some have described certain prisons as “terrorist universities.”

Many UK many prisons have seen a rise in Islamic radicalism as well. Ian Acheson, who was commissioned to examine Islamic radicalism in UK prisons, said earlier this year: “Prison is an ideal environment for the death cult ideology of Islamist extremism to flourish.”

Mr Acheson noted that staff in prisons did little to counter the radical Islamists “for fear of being accused of being racist by Muslim prisoners.”
