A Twitter official on Wednesday said that the tweets in which Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei calls for Israel’s destruction do not violate the company’s rules against hate speech, and indicated that they are considered mere “foreign policy saber-rattling.”Her defense is incomprehensible, and obviously intended to dodge the more serious issues, along with the pure hypocrisy of declaring Trump a problem, but not Iran's autocrats. I just can't understand what's so great about Twitter for anybody when this kind of political correctness reigns supreme there. Above all, Iran's tyranny will not be stopped if this continues as it is.
“We have an approach toward leaders that says that direct interactions with fellow public figures, comments on political issues of the day, or foreign policy saber-rattling on military-economic issues are generally not in violation of our rules,” Ylwa Pettersson, Twitter’s head policy for the Nordic countries and Israel, told the Knesset’s Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, via video-conference.
She was responding to a question by pro-Israel activist Arsen Ostrovsky, who had asked why Twitter attached a special label to a recent tweet by US President Donald Trump noting that it violated the company’s rules, while the Iranian leaders’ many tweets about his wish for Israel to be destroyed are left untouched.
Per a review of documents released last night in the Jeffrey Epstein case, the FBI tried to tie the now deceased pedophile to citizen Donald Trump but were unable to do so.
The FBI failed to drag Trump into the Epstein mess. But they sure tried. One of the abused victims mentioned that Donald Trump was a good friend of Epstein’s. When asked about it, the only response the witness could make was that she stated this because Epstein told her that, nothing else.
The FBI asked the victim over and over if Trump was ever with Epstein but to no avail:

Portland Chief Just Fined Trump’s Feds – Every 15 Minutes Feds Protect Courthouse, They Are Charged $500
Recently, the government sent Portland assistance in the form of federal officers. It was their job to protect the federal courthouse, which has faced damage from hundreds of protesters.
Reports claim that the courthouse has been under attack almost nightly, and vandalism remains a very serious threat.
Since that time, federal officials have attempted to form a protective ring around the courthouse, in the form of both manpower and fencing. But Portland isn’t exactly grateful for that help.
According to Fox News:
The city of Portland, Ore. is fining the federal government $500 for every 15 minutes it maintains unpermitted fencing outside of the federal courthouse that has faced nightly attacks amid ongoing protests and rioting.
City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly said that so far, the government has racked up a total fine of $192,000. And this isn’t merely a political statement, either.
She claims that she’s “afraid to direct workers to do their job,” and further adds that they fully intend to pursue collection of the fine. As Eudaly said in a tweet:
Yes, I am afraid to direct workers to do their job and enforce our laws against the federal government—I hope that gives everyone reading this pause. As of yesterday, the federal government owes us $192,000 and counting. We intend to collect.

Former CIA Director John Brennan, a vocal critic of President Trump, found out he had been blocked from accessing his classified notes and records while working on his new memoir.
He writes in his forthcoming book, Undaunted: My Fight Against America's Enemies, at Home and Abroad, that after months of "haggling" he discovered the CIA was abiding by the directive Trump gave in August 2018 "that purportedly forbids anyone in the intelligence community from sharing classified information with me."
The White House confirmed the directive was being enforced, which is news considering the New York Times reported in May of last year that the president never revoked Brennan's security clearance.
"The President has constitutional authority to control access to classified information, which he exercised here in view of Mr. Brennan's erratic behavior and the President;s belief that access to classified information should be solely for the benefit of the government and the American people," White House spokesman Judd Deere said.
Brennan, who acknowledges he is in the "crosshairs" of the criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation led by U.S. Attorney John Durham, claimed he asked the CIA for his official records including his personal notes and any classified CIA documents that he had signed, but the agency denied his request.

BLOWS AGAINST THE EMPIRE: John MacArthur's Grace Community Church Announces It Will Open In Defiance of Gavin Newsom's Order That Churches Must Stay Closed
John MacArthur is the head pastor of the large and influential Grace Community Church in Southern California. On Friday, July 24th, he posted a statement on his blog announcing GCC's intention to resume meeting for worship despite California's imposition of tighter lockdown rules announced by chief petty tyrant Gavin Newsom. He gives theological and biblical reasons why this is permitted, including:
Notice that we are not making a constitutional argument, even though the First Amendment of the United States Constitution expressly affirms this principle in its opening words: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The right we are appealing to was not created by the Constitution. It is one of those unalienable rights granted solely by God, who ordained human government and establishes both the extent and the limitations of the state's authority (Romans 13:1–7). Our argument therefore is purposely not grounded in the First Amendment; it is based on the same biblical principles that the Amendment itself is founded upon. The exercise of true religion is a divine duty given to men and women created in God’s image (Genesis 1:26–27; Acts 4:18–20; 5:29; cf. Matthew 22:16–22). In other words, freedom of worship is a command of God, not a privilege granted by the state.
I really like this. The state is not the be-all and end-all of human existence. There are rights (and responsibilities) that exist prior to the formation of any state. If you truly understand and believe this, there is no way you can ever be a socialist. Not consistently, anyway.
Once you start yammering, like Bernie Sanders, about health care being a "human right" or housing being a "human right", you're just announcing that you have no idea what human rights are.
I'm not sure what they're going to do if Newsom (or the local constabulary) decide that they need to be taught a lesson. Presumably they've got legal help lined up and ready to go. So what we have here is a protest movement. We already have one that's been going on for a couple of months, but this one is new.
But unlike the BLM/Antifa protests, here are some of the things the GCC elders and congregation are not doing:
a. Stomping aroundb. Yellingc. Throwing stuffd. Breaking windowse. Defacing public buildings with graffitif. Vandalizing and looting private businessesf. Pulling down statuesg. Turning urban neighborhoods into filthy, crime-ridden shitholes.h. Assaulting and even murdering police officersi. Leaving behind giant piles of trash for somebody else to clean up.
Pastor MacArthur's blog post is uncompromising, yet respectful. So I would say that GCC has the moral high ground here. What they don't have, unfortunately, is any elected officials who have their back. Unlike BLM/Antifa, who have their BFFs Ted Wheeler, Jenny Durkan, Andrew Cuomo, and Gavin Newsom running interference for them. The GCC elders and their congregation are out there by themselves. May God protect them.

“In an attempt to educate beneficiaries who live close to convalescent plasma donation centers about collection opportunities, you received an email incorrectly suggesting you were a COVID-19 survivor. You have not been identified as a COVID-19 survivor and we apologize for the error and any confusion it may have caused,” the company wrote.
Marvin Hill, Humana’s corporate communications lead, said the company apologizes “for the confusion caused by the original message,” which was sent to recipients based on their proximity to a plasma collection facility and not “on any medical information or diagnosis.”
“As a part of an effort to educate military beneficiaries about convalescent plasma donation opportunities, Humana was asked to assist our partner, the Defense Health Agency.
Language used in email messages to approximately 600k beneficiaries gave the impression that we were attempting to reach only people who had tested positive for COVID-19.
We quickly followed the initial email with a clear and accurate second message acknowledging this. We apologize,” Hill said in a statement sent to Military.com.AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals.
I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis,
I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines.
As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.
I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine. When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.GRTWT.
Look, this guy is as mainstream as they get. He is not claiming rarified esoteric knowledge available only to the initiates here. He is speaking about something that is common knowledge within the medical community.
As I have written before, if everyone knows this, and 150K people are dead, and those who know the truth are not shouting the truth from the rooftops, THEY WANT YOU DEAD!

Antifa militant and convicted pedophile Blake David Hampe was arrested in the early hours of Saturday following his alleged stabbing of a black Trump supporter in Portland.
The Trump supporter and conservative, who goes by the name Black Rebel on social media, posted several updates to his condition from the ambulance and hospital.
In the Periscope livestream, he alleged that Hampe had stalked him and his group of friends for several blocks in Portland before stabbing him.
Black Rebel stated that Antifa militants doxed his identity and posted his location on social media and advised each other to “watch out” for him.
“That knife was long enough. He stabbed me to kill me,” said Black Rebel, who says that he spotted Hampe, who was part of a group of Antifa following his group of friends for several blocks before he approached Hampe to ask why he was following them.
“We were all out there, four friends, trying to keep each other safe in the best way possible. I figured I’d try to de-escalate and just have a conversation,” he said. “I went over there, said ‘what’s up buddy?’ and that mother**ker went around and shanked me in the f**king kidney.”
Footage of Hampe’s arrest was captured by several photojournalists, including Garrison Davis, who posted video of the Portland Police Bureau taking him into custody.
Hampe, who was booked into the Portland Police Central Precinct just before 6AM local time, has been charged with felony assault. His bail is set to $250,000.
A further investigation into Hampe’s identity reveals that he was previously indicted on charges of knowingly possessing child pornography in 2007 by the US District Court in Maine.

This editorial is brought to you by Kyle S. Reyes, the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today.
Today, we lost America. We are pulling out of the biggest Back the Blue rally in America.
I’m disgusted. I’m embarrassed. My heart is broken for the America that we’ve lost.
This morning, I woke up at 3am. I proudly announced on Fox and Friends First that Law Enforcement Today was proudly joining a number of other groups in taking part in the largest Back the Blue event in America.
Acclaimed keynote speaker Paul Butler and I were going to be the joint Masters of
Ceremonies. We had rock and roll legend Ted Nugent flying in for the National Anthem – accompanied by Congressman Clay Higgins, the keynote speaker.
The first wave in the attack came from Facebook. After 6300 people RSVP’d to the event, the page was taken down by the social media giant.
It didn’t come as a surprise. I’m the same guy that just got a lifetime ban from LinkedIn last month for sharing an article about a guy who tried to kill two cops. We are sort of use to it.
But what happened today? Today it became evident just how legitimate the war on law enforcement is.
Congressman Clay Higgins and Ted Nugent are not allowed to attend the event… and that apparently comes directly from Governor Cuomo’s office.
Within hours of announcing that they’d be at the rally, Democrats throughout New York demanded the event be shut down. It was the typical liberal playbook – everyone that doesn’t tow the line is a racist, sexist, xenophobe, Islamaphobe, etc.
That didn’t work. Because the last we checked, it’s America. We have yet to see anyone shut down Al Sharpton from speaking at an event, or the self-proclaimed Marxists affiliated with Black Lives Matter.
So they tried a new approach.
The state police detail ensuring the security of Congressman Higgins and Ted Nugent were told they weren’t allowed to offer protection.
Their careers were threatened. Then their families were threatened.
So we came up with a new plan. We had dozens of Blue Knights who were going to provide safe passage.
And that’s when the governor apparently pulled the ultimate “trump” card.
He instructed the health department to ensure that upon landing in the state, Congressman Higgins and Ted Nugent would either be turned around and sent back… or forced into a mandatory 14 day quarantine.
“After being reminded of New York State’s quarantine orders and Nassau County’s protest protocols, Ted Nugent will no longer be attending tomorrow’s march in Eisenhower Park. Congressman Clay Higgins is also being advised of New York State’s quarantine Executive Order.”
If I'm not mistaken, our taxpayer dollars fund the Capitol Police who are assigned to protect our elected Congress critters where ever they are. So the threat of pulling state police protection shouldn't be a problem. As for the threat of quarantine -
How many passengers who actually traveled on the same plane that Nugent was planning to fly on were immediately accosted by NYS health department staff and told to either return to point of origin or quarantine for two weeks?
Also recall DC mayor took Orwell's Animal Farm to dictate policy for elected official exemptions from her unconstitutional edicts:
Portland City Officials Order Feds to Remove Protective Fence from Courts Building to Aid Rioters in their Ransacking
This is just stunning.
Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland, Oregon officials have made it clear whose side their on and it’s not the side of law and order.
For over 50 straight nights antifa-BLM rioters have ransacked the downtown and destroyed public property.
When the leftist mob took aim at the Hatfield United States Courthouse that President Trump sent in federal agents.
Now Portland officials are ORDERING the federal government to remove it’s protective fencing around the Hatfield Courthouse.
Local Democrat officials are OUTRAGED that the federal government is protecting their property.GRTWT.
I read the headline on the Department of Justice press release and thought, sheesh, even the DOJ is calling this lunacy a protest. The headline said, "18 Arrested, Facing Federal Charges After Weeknight Protests at Federal Courthouse in Portland."
These are not protests. These are violent attempts to ignite a revolution. These are demonstrations of the power Antifa has, and what to expect if they do not get their way.
The press release was a police blotter-style account of 18 of these violent loons, but it was the accompanying photos that told the tale of defacing federal property and hurling frozen bottles of water at the police.
The trashing of a federal courthouse is not very bright because judges will decide the fate of these 18 thugs the feds arrested. By billing the vandalism and destruction as a protest, the press -- and now the feds -- are rationalizing the violence.
The press would have people believe that this is a normal protest and that the violence comes from the frustration of the powerless.
The violence is planned because powerful people are behind this unleashing of violence.
They have intimidated mayors and the police. Black Lives Matter is the new national motto in DC, New York, Portland and other Democrat hellholes, replacing In God We Trust.
Anyone who dares say otherwise is subject to being doxxed, and threatened with the loss of employment.
I used to wonder how Germans, the best-educated people in the world at the time, could be conned into becoming Nazis.
The Antifa Riots are a primer on the Nazification of a nation. Democrat mayors protect, encourage, and even participate in these Kristallnacht-like demonstrations. Democrats are saying to America, nice country you have there. It would be a shame if someone tore it up and turned every town large or small into Minneapolis.
Their message is clear: Vote Biden or we will turn America upside down.GRTWT.

The suspect attempted to flee the scene with Eaton Police officers pursuing them. The police were able to stop and arrest him after a short chase. “According to rally participants, the same suspect made their way east along the street prior to the incident, flipping off the crowd,” the Tribune report states.

Seattle City Council Bans Police Use of "Less Lethal Tools", Police Chief Tells Citizens She Can No Longer Protect Them
Dear President González, Chairwoman Herbold, and Seattle City Council Members:
SPD has confirmed with the City Attorney’s Office that the City Council ordinance banning the use of less lethal tools – including pepper spray – commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent, will go into effect this weekend as written.
I am sending this notification for the purpose of ensuring I have done my due diligence of informing Council of the foreseeable impact of this ordinance on upcoming events.
It is a fact that there are groups and individuals who are intent on destruction in our City. Yes, we also have seen weeks of peaceful demonstrations, but two recent events (Sunday, July 19th and Wednesday, July 22nd) have included wide-scale property destruction and attacks on officers, injuring more than a dozen, some significantly.
This weekend we know that several events are planned across the city that will foreseeably involve many of the same violent actors from recent days. There is no reason not to assume we will continue to experience property destruction, arson, looting, and attempts to injure additional officers throughout the weekend and beyond.
With this Council ordinance, we hear loudly and clearly that the use of these less-lethal tools by SPD officers to disperse crowds that have turned violent have been completely banned by City Council.
Under these circumstances, as created by Council, we cannot manage demonstrations as we have in the past. If I am not allowed to lawfully equip officers with the tools they have been trained to use to protect the community and themselves, it would be reckless to have them confront this level of violence under the current legal restrictions imposed by Council.
Some have asked why officers are not arresting those engaging in criminal behavior, as officers do every day, and as they have in recent protests. If it is safe to do so, and even when it places their lives in danger, our officers always directly address criminal behavior. They do this, however, when they know they have the tools shown to allow the safe use of their policing powers. This Council ordinance denies them access to these tools that have been an essential part of their court-approved tactics.
We have clear, court-mandated procedures for arresting individuals, grounded in the principles of deescalation. SPD’s de-escalation principles are premised on the expectation, consistent with policy and best practices, that officers have the full array of approved tools. In large crowds, there is no safe way for officers to effect arrests when their colleagues do not have the tools necessary to protect them.
As City Council’s legislation goes into effect, it will create even more dangerous circumstances for our officers to intervene using what they have left – riot shields and riot batons. Advertisement - story continues below For these reasons, SPD will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend.
The Council legislation gives officers no ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd. Allowing this behavior deeply troubles me, but I am duty-bound to follow the Council legislation once it is in effect.
If the Council is prepared to suggest a different response or interpretation of the legislation, I stand ready to receive it. Additionally, while the Ordinance by title suggests a limitation to crowd management purposes, the language of the Ordinance, in its blanket prohibition on the procurement and ownership of such tools, effectively eliminates these tools as available less-lethal options across the board.
The bill clearly bans OC spray at any rally, demonstration or other event, despite if it turns violent. Further, while we recognize a limited exception for the targeted use of OC spray, the exception does not realistically allow for deployment in such a manner that ensures the aerosol does not disperse onto anyone other than the intended subject.
For these reasons, officers who typically deploy with OC as one of their standard less-lethal options will no longer be carrying this tool. We continue to assess the impact of the prohibition on the procurement, ownership, and use of these tools on SWAT operations.
I believe Council can lead on de-escalation at each of these events through their voice and presence encouraging peaceful demonstrations. It remains my deep hope that once OPA and the OIG have had the opportunity to complete the analysis tasked to them, Council will engage productively with SPD and its accountability partners to forge a meaningful path forward that provides for public safety in these unprecedented times.
Chief of Police Seattle Police Department
When they say “Black Lives Matter,” it is clear the left does not mean black lives like the one of Bernell Tremmell.
Tremmell was well-known in his Milwaukee community for being an outspoken advocate for President Donald Trump. He would spend his days out in the heat at City Hall or in his neighborhood with his homemade signs urging people to reelect the president in November.
On Thursday afternoon, the 60-year-old activist was fatally shot in broad daylight outside his business, Expression Publications. The storefront was covered in signs with bible versus, along with “Vote Donald Trump 2020,” and “Re-Elect Trump 2020.” The suspect reportedly drove up, shot him, and drove away.
Law enforcement sources told “The Dan O’Donnell Show” that they do not yet know the motive for the murder, since they have not yet made any arrests, but “detectives are investigating the possibility that Tremmell was killed over his political beliefs.”
As reported last week, Oregon’s far left attorney general, Ellen Rosenblum, sought a federal court order to protect her terrorist friends and prevent the feds from intervening in the continuous riotous acts that have been ongoing in Portland. Her motion was DENIED today by a judge in the very same courthouse that has been subjected to the repeated vandalism and arson.GRTWT.
For the past week or so, Democrats purporting to be "pro-Israel" have been laying the groundwork for release of the party's official 2020 platform. Their spin has been that they held the line against their party's ascendant anti-Israel progressive base. They needed that spin.
Many lifelong Democrats who recognize Israel as a valued U.S. ally, who appreciate the existence of the world's only secure Jewish state and who oppose the unremitting terror campaigns of the Palestine Liberation Organization and Hamas had grown concerned.
They know that much as they may have admired the Obama-Biden administration on other grounds, its "daylight" doctrine had been an unmitigated disaster for Israel. In a stark, stunning and explicit departure from decades of bipartisan U.S. policy promising "no daylight" and "no surprises" between the allies, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry revealed Israeli intelligence, sabotaged operations and engaged in stealthy diplomatic attacks on the Jewish state—culminating in the notorious UNSC 2334 declaration that the mere act of Jews living in Judea is criminal.
The party's progressive base has made no secret of its desire to pocket 2334 and orient American policy in directions increasingly antagonistic towards Israel—and increasingly dangerous to Jewish life. The purported "pro-Israel" Democrats needed a pro-Israel platform for assurance.
But the Democratic National Committee released a platform 180 degrees off from the spin. It's so pro-Iran that the National Iranian-American Council, the de facto Iranian regime lobby in Washington, immediately "applauded" the DNC "for its forward-leaning platform commitments on issues of importance to the Iranian-American community." It demonstrates that President Obama's curious preference for the supremacists running the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, rather than our traditional regional allies, has become mainstream Democratic ideology.
Trump administration policies have brought the bloody Islamic Republic to its knees. The Democrats seek to restore its vitality by ending sanctions and re-entering President Obama's odious Iran deal. Every faction across Israel's notoriously fractious political spectrum agreed that this deal was an existential threat. Biden and the 2020 Democrats take the opposing view: Regime change is wrong; diplomacy and economic engagement can restrain the mullahs.
Next up, the Gulf Arabs: A new generation of leaders have recently expanded women's rights, confronted Islamism, acted to curb terrorism, deepened ties to the U.S. and moved towards ending the Arab/Israeli conflict. Biden and the 2020 Democrats prefer to "reset" those warm relations in order to keep America's traditional Gulf allies at arms length.
Tucker Carlson: "The Pentagon has been conducting classified hearings on UFOs for more than a decade. We know very little about what they found, but apparently just recovered are off-world vehicles not made on this earth. That's a direct quote." pic.twitter.com/0rrkHFv01B— The Columbia Bugle 🇺🇸 (@ColumbiaBugle) July 24, 2020
It has been forever since UFOs have been talked about and constantly battled against being called "conspiracy theories", but there has been more and more information released in the last couple of years. Remember it was only last month that a classified briefing on UFOs left senators 'disturbed' afterwards.
But the latest news is coming from The New York Times, in an article titled 'No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon's U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public' saying that a Pentagon unit tasked with UFO sightings and their findings are out of this world. Tucker Carlson broke it down saying that the New York Times reports about "recovered UFOs" that are "off-world vehicles not made on this Earth" -- a direct quote from the New York Times, says Carlson.
"The Constitution Guarantees Each State A Republican Form of Government, And Shall Protect Each One of Them Against Invasion and Violence"
Police won't protect us. It's time to admit our only defense is self-defense, and the only help we can expect is self-help. And to mutually vow to each other that we will never, ever convict someone for resorting to self-help, if we're on someone's jury.
Either the state will enforce the law and protect us, or we'll protect ourselves, and protect those who protect themselves. Period.
The officials sworn to protect the civil peace have instead decided to protect the bandits and looters and arsonists. Instead of prosecuting them for their crimes, they nullify the law and let them out the next morning.
We can nullify the law too, guys. You're not the only ones who can set aside the law and free people for what might, in other times, be considered crimes of violence.
If you won't prosecute looters, arsonists, and insurrectionists, we will not convict those who use violence to stop looters, arsonists, and insurrectionists, or use violence (as here) just to fucking get home without being illegally held-up by bandits blocking the road like old-time highwaymen and road-thieves.
The state has decided we will be ruled by the mob.
But we never agreed to that.
The Constitution says that we will rule ourselves, through our elected officials. Not to the violent insurrectionists and anarchists the police and government have turned the streets over to.
The Constitution guarantees its citizens a "republican form of government."
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Supreme Court rulings have found that this clause is binding on state and local government. If state and local government do not provide for a "republican form of government" -- one man one vote, government by the consent of the governed, etc. -- they're in violation of the Constitution.
And, crucially: The Constitution guarantees that the government will protect us from Invasion as well as from Domestic Violence.
Are state and local governments protecting citizens from Domestic Violence, or actively supporting the terroristic gangs inflicting that violence?
Obviously, giving over the streets to Private Vigilante Law Enforcement and Traffic Diversion Squads of antifa and BLM -- none of whom are elected and many of whom are straight-up criminal anarchists and mentally-ill ones at that -- is not a "republican form of government."
They are in violation of the Constitution, and we are under no obligation to follow the law in a lawless, unconstitutional state.

“Moderate” WH Reporter Says Safe Streets and Children Respecting Police Are Part of the “President’s Agenda” As if That’s a Bad Thing — What Does That Say About Democrats?
Twice during her press briefing, McEnany ran videos in support of the president's agenda: one on urban violence against which Trump wants to send in Federal law enforcement, and another video of little kids cheering local police.

Bill Binney, Intelligence Experts Ask President Trump to Demand Sunlight from FBI and Intel Community on Russia Collusion and Other Cover Ups Like the Seth Rich Investigation
William Binney, a thirty-year veteran of the National Security Agency and its former technical director, will expose the continuing suppression by British intelligence agencies and their American counterparts of his evidence disproving the entire “Russiagate” story.
“We can prove, that all the data that Wikileaks published from the DNC, that was downloaded on the 23rd and 25th of May, and also the 26th of August of 2016; all of that carried the signatures of being downloaded to a thumb drive or a CD-ROM, and physically transported,” Binney says.
“So, we can prove that in a court of law. In fact, I put that in sworn affidavits that I submitted in the Roger Stone case and also in the General Flynn case. And the judges would not let my testimony in. I’ve been hard pressed to find anything (Russia) did in the 2016 election, let alone anything they’re trying to do in the 2020 election,” Binney said.
