US Attorney General Jeff Sessions says has fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, effective immediately. The abrupt termination could cost McCabe, who is accused of mishandling Hillary Clinton‘s email probe, much of his pension.

The termination was recommended by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. It comes after a still-classified report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general found that McCabe mishandled the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

“Based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately,” Sessions said of his decision.

McCabe’s firing was announced on Friday, just two days before he was set to retire. The sacking could cost McCabe the pension that he was entitled to after 21 years of working at the FBI.

McCabe “has made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor – including under oath – on multiple occasions,”Sessions stated, citing reports by both the Inspector General and the ORP. The soon-to-be-released DOJ report is expected to reveal that McCabe leaked information about the Clinton email probe to the media and misled watchdog investigators.

McCabe announced that he would be stepping down from his post in late January, but took a “terminate leave” that would have allowed him to collect an estimated $60,000 a year pension. McCabe planned to retire on Sunday, the day of his 50th birthday.

The career FBI official’s plan did not sit well with US President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly taunted him on Twitter, particularly over his wife’s connections. In July, Trump tweeted that McCabe should have been fired because his wife, Jill, received money from a Clinton ally in 2015 to run for a state seat in Virginia. In a string of tweets in December, Trump slammed McCabe for “racing the clock to retire with full benefits.”

In the statement released upon his ouster, McCabe accused the White House and Trump personally of taking revenge on him for his conduct in wake of the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

“The release of this report was accelerated only after my testimony to the House Intelligence Committee revealed that I would corroborate former Director Comey’s accounts of his discussions with the President,” McCabe said, describing the accusations against him as “an unprecedented effort by the Administration, driven by the President himself, to remove me from my position, destroy my reputation and possibly strip me of a pension that I worked 21 years to earn.”

His dismissal, McCabe argued, is a part of a larger pattern involving “an ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel [Robert Mueller] Investigation [into Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia]” waged by the Trump administration.

He has rejected all the accusations against him, saying that there is “nothing further from the truth” than the claims that he lacked integrity and was led by political motives through the Clinton probe.

McCabe has also denied that he single-handedly allowed media leaks, arguing that all his contacts with the press were supervised by the FBI chief. “It was not a secret, it took place over several days, and others, including the Director, were aware of the interaction with the reporter. He went on to point out that he continued “the same type of work” after Comey was fired and replaced with Christopher Wray “at his request.”



There are way too many booms in our headlines lately. But this is a big one.


They were talking about doing this in order to screw him over on his pension, and it looks like they pulled the trigger. This is gonna cost him A LOT of money…



Wow. Here’s the statement:

Another absurd example of big tech censorship

 | – MARCH 16, 2018

Another ludicrous example of big tech censorship occurred when Instagram removed a photo of a young woman wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat for violating its community guidelines.

“Instagram removed my picture of me and my MAGA hat on. WTF?” tweeted Kathy Zhu.


“Your post has been removed. We removed your post because it doesn’t follow our community guidelines,” states the Instagram message alongside the blurred out MAGA hat photo.

Instagram’s community guidelines state that nude photos cannot be posted and that “hate speech” will be removed, so presumably the Trump hat falls into the latter category.

The now notorious red MAGA hat has enjoyed a storied short history of triggering leftists.

Back in December, Fordham University students were ejected from a Bronx campus coffee shop because their MAGA hats violated its “safe space” policy.

An absurd video that emerged in September last year shows an irate ethnic studies student at the University of California snatching a MAGA hat from another student before asserting that the hat promotes “laws and legislation that literally kill and murder in the masses, people of color.”

In July last year, a Brooklyn man was attacked with a broken bottle in a Manhattan bar over his MAGA hat, leaving him with a broken nose and a slice down his face.

(THIS IS WHY THEY WANT OUR GUNS AMERICA) – Student suspended for NOT participating in gun control march…

 | MAR 16, 2018 | 9:54 AM

A high school student in Hilliard, Ohio, didn’t want to pick sides in the contentious gun debate surrounding Wednesday’s “National Walkout,” so he stayed in class instead of joining the largely anti-gun protest or an alternative “study hall.”

Hilliard Davidson High School senior Jacob Shoemaker was then reportedly slapped with a suspension.

The student argued that divisive politics have no place in America’s schools and he refused to take sides in the debate, according to the Associated Press.

Shoemaker’s suspension citation was posted online, possibly by a friend, and the story quickly went viral.

“Student refused to follow instructions after being warned repeatedly by several administrators,” the letter said. “Student not permitted on school property.”

School district spokesperson Stacie Raterman said official policy prohibited school officials from leaving Shoemaker unattended in the building for “security reasons,” 10TV reported.

While Shoemaker said he didn’t expect for his actions to generate so much attention, he is prepared to accept the consequences of his decision.


(ANOTHER GLOBALIST WHO NEEDS A WAR) – Boris Johnson: Likely ‘Putin’s decision’ to order use of nerve agent in UK

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said it is overwhelmingly likely it was Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to direct the nerve agent attack against Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

During a museum visit in west London alongside his Polish counterpart Jacek Czaputowicz, Johnson said: “We have nothing against the Russians themselves. There is to be no Russophobia as a result of what is happening.”

“Our quarrel is with Putin’s Kremlin, and with his decision – and we think it overwhelmingly likely that it was his decision – to direct the use of a nerve agent on the streets of the UK, on the streets of Europe for the first time since the Second World War.”

Yesterday, Boris Johnson said the UK will allow for an independent international examination of the nerve agent which was used in the attack on the former double agent Sergei Skripal.

Writing in Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper, the UK Foreign Minister said the poisoning of the former spy was part of a “pattern of lawless behavior” by Russia. He also announced that the UK government will give international experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in the Hague the opportunity to review Britain’s analysis of the sample.

Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in the incident. Speaking at a news briefing Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova accused London of making “insane” accusations while refusing to provide Moscow with any evidence.

Johnson’s comments came after UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced the expulsion of some 23 Russian diplomats, on Wednesday. In turn, Johnson’s counterpart Sergei Lavrov confirmed to journalists that Moscow will respond in kind. Lavrov also iterated that Russia “has stopped paying attention” to allegations against them, suggesting it is a violation of international law that May is now refusing to work with Russia.


“Europe Is Under Invasion” – Hungarian PM Addresses Historic Crowd


By Dan Lyman Friday, March 16, 2018

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered a rousing speech to tens of thousands of Magyars on March 15, a national holiday commemorating their struggle for independence, in which he declared, “Our biggest battle is about to begin.”

With just three weeks to go before parliamentary elections that will shape the future of Hungary and Europe at large, a crowd of “unprecedented numbers” turned out to Kossuth Square in Budapest to hear PM Orbán as he dedicated the lion’s share of his address to the subject of immigration and the war for European-Christian culture.

“Africa wants to kick down our door, and Brussels is not defending us,” Orbán warned. “Hungary and Europe face a mass migration wave which endangers the way of life of their peoples. Europe is under invasion. The situation is that those who don’t block migration at their borders will be lost.”

“We are expected to willingly hand over [our country] within a few decades… to foreigners from other continents who don’t speak our language, respect our culture, our laws or way of life.”

“We are fighting an enemy that is different from us. Not open, but hiding; not straightforward but crafty; not honest but base; not national but international; does not believe in working but speculates with money; does not have its own homeland but feels it owns the whole world,” he continued, making a clear reference to the ‘George Soros mafia.’ “This is our homeland, our life, and since we don’t have another one, we will fight for it till the very end and we will never give it up.”


Orbán reminded voters that their decision in the April 8 elections will affect not just Hungarians for the next four years, but also European civilization for many years to come. He asserted, “If Poland is strong, Hungary cannot be lost either,” and compared the allied nations to ‘ancient trees with entangled roots.’

The latest polls reflect dominating support for Orbán’s Fidesz party, indicating that Magyars are strongly in favor of rigorous measures taken by the Hungarian government to shield the country from the migration crisis, while also fighting off immense pressure from the EU, Soros, and other powerful globalist forces to open their borders and accept virtually limitless ‘refugee resettlement quotas.’

“Dear Hungarian youth, the homeland needs you,” Orbán concluded. “Come and join us in our fight so that when you’ll need the homeland you’ll still have one.”

“If the dike collapses and the water flows in, the cultural conquest will become irreversible.”
