Truck Runs Over Anti-Fracking Protester Standing In Middle Of Street [VIDEO]

H/T The Daily Caller.

Get stuck on stupid and stand in the middle of a street and become a human speed bump.

A pickup truck ran over a British anti-fracking activist who was standing in the middle of a road as a form of protest Wednesday.

Witnesses said the man was knocked over by the truck and sustained minor injuries while slowly walking down the middle of the street to impede traffic to a fracking site. Fellow activists filmed the incident near a fracking site in Lancashire, England.

“We try to create a form of obstruction on the highway,” Danny Llew, an anti-fracking activist who’s also unemployed, told The Mirror. “I’ve done it before. It has been used for quite a few years as a peaceful protest method.”

“Sometimes we will stand on white lines and other times we might stand in the middle lane to slow down traffic. Regardless of the situation, pedestrians have the right of way,” Llew said.

The driver of the truck was not arrested, but police officers say they have spoken to him.

“Upon leaving the fracking site, a works vehicle has come into contact with a campaigner despite the driver taking evasive action to try and avoid him,” a Lancashire police spokesman said in a statement. “The driver of the vehicle was indeed spoken to by police, provided a negative breath test and all other personal and vehicle checks were correct and in order.”

Llew said “we are campaigning against fracking because of the impact it can have on the environment, which is the most important part of this, but also there’s the impact it has on health, communities and it creates wealth that is going to benefit only certain people.”

he U.K.-based energy company Cuadrilla began assembling the country’s first large-scale fracking site in Lancashire in January. British officials approved the operation last October, and Cuadrilla expects to begin full-scale drilling in the second quarter of 2017.

The U.K. is one of the few countries in Europe to legalize fracking, but local governments had repeatedly refused to give energy companies permits for years. The central government approved fracking in Lancashire over local objections and issued the first fracking permits in Western Europe since 2011.

EXCLUSIVE: Radical Dem Worked For Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump, Jr.

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

I smell a giant rat and his name is Ron Dellums.

Rush Limbaugh calls him Ron”Red”Dellums for his Communist sympathies.

Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

Dellums, who represented liberal San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., is a long-time darling of left-wing political activists. He served 13 terms in Congress as an African-American firebrand and proudly called himself a socialist. He retired in 1996.

 The former congressman is one of several high-profile Democratic partisans who was on Veselnitskaya’s payroll, working to defeat a law that is the hated object of a personal vendetta waged by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A national outcry has erupted in the establishment media about Trump Jr.’s meeting with Veselnitskaya. But there has been little focus on the Democrats who willingly served for years on her payroll helping to wage a Russian-led lobby campaign against the law. Congress passed the legislation, the Magnitsky Act, in response to the murder of Sergei Magnistky, a Russian lawyer who alleged corruption and human rights violations against numerous Russian officials.

According to a complaint filed to the Department of Justice Foreign Agents Registration Act division last July, Dellums failed to register as a foreign agent representing a Russian-driven effort led by Veselnitskaya to repeal the Magnitsky Act.

The act was a bipartisan bill enacted in December 2012 intended to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Magnitsky, who died in a Moscow prison in 2009. President Barack Obama signed the act into law.

The legislation bars 18 Russians from entering the United States because of the lawyer’s death. Putin retaliated by freezing American adoptions of Russian children and barred 18 Americans from entering Russia.

Magnitsky was a tax lawyer with the Hermitage Fund, a London-based firm that invested in Russia. The tax lawyer uncovered a $230 million scheme allegedly run by Russian mobsters. He informed Russian officials of the corruption.

Instead of investigating Prevezon Holdings Ltd., a Russian-owned firm implicated in the scandal, Russian officials arrested Magnitsky. He died in prison in 2009 after being tortured and killed in prison, according to the Russian Presidential Human Rights Commission.

Prevezon was owned by Denis Katsyv who, along with Veselnitskaya, created the Human Rights Accountability Global Initiative Foundation in the U.S. The foundation was designed to repeal the Magnitsky Act using a lobbying team that included Dellums.

This is not the first time Dellums’ advanced the interests of dictatorships. As a congressman, he was fond of Cuban President Fidel Castro, and he supported Cuba’s military intervention in Africa.

Dellums also sued President George W. Bush’s 1991 military effort to liberate Kuwait after Saddam Hussein invaded the country.

The former congressman is only one of a notable team of partisan Democrats Veselnitskaya hired to defeat the Magnitsky Act.

Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS, also joined the Russian lawyer and “worked with her on a legal case for years,” according to The Washington Post.

Fusion GPS is the firm that reportedly commissioned a phony “dossier” authored by former British spy Christopher Steele that alleged salacious and largely erroneous charges about President Donald Trump.

Most news organizations reject the dossier as dubious at best, but it eventually was published by BuzzFeed 10 days before Trump was inaugurated.

Christopher Cooper, the founder and CEO of Potomac Square Group, also joined Veselnitskaya. His company does campaign work for foreign principles and foreign governments including the governments of Azerbaijan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, UAE, and Nigeria as well as Russia. The company’s clients have included Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic presidential hopeful Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

Potomac Square also partnered with Dean’s campaign manger Joe Trippi on behalf of the families of radical Islamic terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay.

The Senate Committee on the Judiciary will convene a hearing next week on the Russian government’s opposition to the Magnitsky Act. Witnesses are expected to include, among others, William Browder, the founder of the Hermitage Fund.

TheDCNF contacted Dellums’ lobby firm but received no reply to inquiries about his role with the Russian lawyer.

DNC Chair On Meet The Press: ‘People Will Die If The ACA Is Repealed’ [VIDEO]

Leave a comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

This is the same old tried song the DemocRats have been singing for decades time for a new song.

DNC chair Tom Perez and RNC chair Ronna McDaniel faced off to debate health care reform on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday, with Perez saying, “people will die if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.”

“Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd asked what could unify both parties and make voters more comfortable about moving to the center of the political spectrum. McDaniel took the question as an opportunity to criticize Perez.

“With all due respect when Tom [Perez] saying Republicans don’t give a BLANK about anyone. When he goes around and says that about the other party, I know Democrats care about other people … that type of rhetoric doesn’t bring people to our parities,” McDaniels said.

The RNC chair was referring to an incident in January when Perez said that “Donald Trump didn’t win the election” and “Republicans don’t give a sh-t about people.”

WATCH: 

“He [Perez] should be ashamed of himself for insulting the millions of Americans who don’t share his liberal vision for our country, McDaniel said in response to Perez’s original comments. ” The Democrats are the minority party because of comments like those, and if he thinks this is the way back from the wilderness, he’s sorely mistaken.”

Todd asked Perez if he regretted the comments.

“Here’s the problem. I meet people who are worried to death because this Republican repeal bill is not a health care bill,” he said. “It’s a tax cut bill for the mega wealthy masquerading as a health care bill.”

McDaniel jumped in to confront Perez for not answering the question and Perez shot back that “people will die if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.”

McDaniel described his answer as rhetoric that was “0ver the top.”

Perez called the healthcare issue a “five alarm fire” and suggested Republicans are adding gasoline to help put it out.

“You don’t fight a five alarm fire with only a gallon of gas,” said Perez.

Congress is currently deciding whether or to push a “repeal and replace” of former President Barack Obama’s signature law or to repeal the ACA then build a replacement plan going forward. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already shot down the idea of a flat out repeal, causing a fracture in the Republican party over how to deliver on their top campaign promise.

Hakeem Jeffries: ‘Every Racist In America Voted For Donald Trump’ [VIDEO]

H/T The Daily Caller.

The left singing the same old tired songs that Trump voters are racists, sexist, bigoted, homophobic and Islamophobic.

Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries claimed that “every racist in America voted for Donald Trump” during House proceedings Monday evening.

The congressman from New York was delivering a speech on the House floor Monday when he went on a rant about white supremacy and hate crimes being perpetuated by Trump’s presidency.

“We’re wondering why were so many people who worship at the altar of white supremacy drawn to Donald Trump’s campaign?” Jeffries asked. “What was it about this individual that so many folks dripping in hatred flocked to his candidacy?”

Jeffries tried to qualify his statements but somehow ended up going even further left.

“That’s not to say that every American who voted for Donald Trump is a racist,” he asserted. “We do know that every racist in America voted for Donald Trump.”

“This president has a responsibility to address the rise in hate crimes that have taken place on his watch, whether or not his election is directly connected to it,” Jeffries concluded.

EXCLUSIVE: Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson’s Body

How many more James Hodgkins are out there waiting on more leftist venom against Republicans?

James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.

The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.

The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.

The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.

None of the three offices would offer comments on the record when asked about the names on the list. Brooks and Franks’ office further directed all inquiries to the Capitol police, who declined to comment. The FBI’s Washington field office, which is handling the investigation, also provided no comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

All three representatives are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members. Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday’s baseball practice.

Duncan said he spoke with Hodgkinson briefly before the shooting, when the would-be assassin asked him in the parking lot if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. Duncan said he answered that the players were Republicans, before leaving the field. Brooks was still present on the field when Hodgkinson began shooting with a rifle, wounding four people including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. The gunman died after being shot by a member of Scalise’s security detail.

The FBI also recovered a cell phone, a computer and a camera in the shooter’s van and is processing the items, according to a statement the agency issued on Thursday.

A 66-year-old progressive who volunteered on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, Hodgkinson’s social media profile was filled with violent-sounding rhetoric against the Republican Party. “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co,” Hodgkinson wrote in one post. He also belonged to several anti-GOP groups on Facebook, including one called “Terminate The Republican Party.” The members of that group celebrated Hodgkinson’s mass assassination attempt. (RELATED: Shooting At GOP Baseball Practice Latest In Pattern Of Violence Against Republicans)

He spewed left-wing talking points on Facebook, consistently railing against Republicans and the wealthy.

“We all know that the rich don’t pay enough taxes,” he wrote in one letter to the editor of his local paper. “I have never said ‘life sucks,’ only the policies of the Republicans,” he wrote in another.

Hodgkinson’s widow, Suzanne Hodgkinson, said Thursday afternoon that she had “no idea” he was going to carry out the murders. James told her that he was going to Washington, D.C. to “work on taxes” and “change the tax brackets,” she said.

Hodgkinson’s time spent volunteering on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign compelled the socialist senator to disavow the shooter the same day.

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign. I am sickened by this despicable act,” Sanders said in a prepared statement on Wednesday. “Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

Dem Senator Wants Investigation Into Lynch Interference On Clinton Email Investigation

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

It sounds like the DemocRats are wanting to draw attention away from their the Russians affected to outcome of the 2016 election lie.

So the are willing to throw Comey and Lynch under the bus.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein called for the Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate former attorney general Loretta Lynch instructing James Comey to mislead the public about the Clinton email investigation.

Comey testified on Thursday that Lynch instructed him, without explanation, to call the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use a private email server as secretary of a state a “matter” instead of an investigation. Lynch’s request, Comey said, made him feel “queasy” as it appeared she was “looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.” (RELATED: Bush AG: Lynch ‘Betrayal’ Made DOJ ‘An Arm Of The Clinton Campaign’)

“I would have a queasy feeling, too,” Feinstein admitted in a Sunday morning interview on CNN. “I think we need to know more about that and there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the judiciary committee take a look at that.”

Comey cited Lynch’s request as one of the reasons he felt compelled to hold a press conference announcing the results of the Clinton email investigation. He also cited Lynch’s private meeting with Bill Clinton on her airplane as another reason for trying to keep the FBI investigation independent from the DOJ.

Michael Mukasey, the attorney general under George W. Bush, said on Friday that Lynch essentially turned the Department of Justice into “an arm of the Clinton campaign.”

“What makes it egregious is the fact — and I think it’s obvious that it is a fact — that the attorney general of the United States was adjusting the way the department talked about its business so as to coincide with the way the Clinton campaign talked about that business,” Mukasey said.

“In other words, it made the Department of Justice essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign. That is a betrayal of the department and of its independence to illustrate that clearly that the attorney general was essentially in the tank for Secretary Clinton.” (RELATED: Watch This Con Law Prof Knock Down MSNBC’s ‘Obstruction Of Justice’ Narrative In Less Than Two Minutes)

Gohmert: Mueller Is ‘Dirty’ And ‘Should Recuse Himself’ [VIDEO]

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

 Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert is correct about Robert Mueller he is a DemocRat hack.

   

Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert called on special counsel Robert Mueller to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, saying Mueller is “dirty” and that the creation of a special counsel was “a ruse” by “the dishonest Comey.”

Gohmert said that “there is so much collusion — real collusion in the Justice Department,” including “collusion between Comey and Mueller.”

“There is no collusion with this administration and Russia, so we can drop the independent counsel, special counsel, there is no further need and now that we have collusion between Comey and Mueller, before he testified, also ran things by other people in the justice department when they did their memo. so much collusion,” Gohmert said.

Mueller, Gohmert said, “should recuse himself from this matter. We don’t need a special counsel. That was a ruse, once again, by the dishonest Comey.”

Comey admitted during his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that, after he was fired, he leaked a memo documenting one of his conversations with Trump in order to get a special counsel appointed.

Gohmert also accused Comey of lying under oath when he said that he never created similar memos after conversations with Barack Obama and George W. Bush while working in their administrations.

“He did prepare notes after his one-on-one meeting with Bush, he lied about that too,” Gohmert said. “This thing stinks to high heaven.” Gohmert isn’t the first one to make the charge that Comey mislead the committee in his testimony, as others have noted that Barton Gellman’s book, “Angler,” said Comey wrote a two-page memo documenting an extensive conversation he had with George W. Bush.

Gohmert’s full interview can be seen below.
