The White House denied reports that former acting Attorney General, Sally Yates was blocked today from testifying on Russia to the House Intelligence Committee.
Via the Washington Times:
In a statement, the White House said it “has taken no action to prevent Sally Yates from testifying and the Department of Justice specifically told her that it would not stop her and to suggest otherwise is completely irresponsible.”
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said an article on the matter in The Washington Post “is entirely false.”
The article alleges that the Trump administration sought to block Ms. Yates from testifying about possible links between Russian officials and Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign. It said Justice Department notified her earlier this month that the administration considers much of her possible testimony to be barred because the topics are covered by the presidential communication privilege.
“Such communications are likely covered by the presidential communications privilege and possibly the deliberative process privilege. The President owns those privileges,” Mr. Schools wrote in the letter dated March 24. “Therefore, to the extent Ms. Yates needs consent to disclose the details of those communications to HPSCI, she needs to consult with the White House. She need not obtain separate consent from the Department.”
Of course the Democrats and fake news media are drunk on Russian conspiracy theories as they report on this story. What if Yates decided not to testify because she would have to admit who leaked the Flynn story to the press?
I wouldn’t be surprised if she plead the 5th just like Loretta Lynch did…
We will update this story as it develops.

The heated rhetoric between the European Union (EU) and the Philippines took a wild turn on Sunday after a Duterte ally suggested European officials should “stick to child porn”.
President Rodrigo Duterte’s love affair with the Filipino people is like a jet plane that’s just taken off.
Nothing and no one can stop it right now. He is beloved. Just look at the TIME Magazine survey of Top 100 Men and Women for 2017. He is the runaway top guy at 13% with no less than the pope, a poor second at 3%. And Vladimir Putin. And Mark Zuckerberg. And Justin Trudeau. And Bill Gates. All at 3% each.
Plus 9 out of 10 Filipinos right now approve of him.
Wrap your dim minds around that, you clowns. Nine out of ten.
So if I wanted to topple his government and if I wanted to destroy him and take his place, and IF I had half a teaspoon of IQ on me, I’d wait. Bide my time. Wait for when he trips and makes some HUGE error so that people turn against him and his approval ratings go on a downward dizzy spiral.
This isn’t rocket science, Einsteins. (It’s that half a teaspoon of IQ that’s the problem. I see this now.)
THEN and only THEN would it be the time to let your cash flow to pay the EU idiots with galls as huge as Goodyear blimps to call for the president’s resignation, or to talk before the UNDOC in your singsong voice and creepy smile with your made up numbers about killings and blah blah blah, and too, whatever shit the cub scouts Trillanes, Alejano are up to (I don’t even bother to find out. Who takes these batang uhugins seriously really?)
In the meantime, learn a craft. Mag-gantsilyo club muna kayo, Trillanes, Leni, etc. Bake ng red velvet cupcakes. Tapos yung mga taga EU, mag online child porn muna kayo. Dyan naman kayo magaling eh. (Wow. Uproar.)
That’s my advice for you, ninnies. For now, I won’t charge you for it. Libre yan. Pero ulit ulitin nyo pa tong katangahan nyo, may charge na ha.
According to Interaksyon, the phrase “Tapos yung mga taga EU, mag online child porn muna kayo. Dyan naman kayo magaling eh.”, translated to the following:
Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo defended Assistant Secretary for Special Concerns Lorraine Marie Badoy, who has come under criticism for suggesting on social media that European Union lawmakers engage in online child porn.
In a Facebook post on Sunday in which she plowed into critics of President Rodrigo Duterte and his war on drugs, which has claimed thousands of lives since last July, said: “Tapos yung mga taga EU, mag online child porn muna kayo. Dyan naman kayo magaling eh (And you from the EU, just engage in online child porn. It’s what you’re good at).”

Parents are outraged as the leftist programs discriminate against Caucasian Americans.
Parents are left furious after Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood faces layoffs and larger class sizes thanks to a California law which limits funds for schools that have a higher percentage of white students.
The Los Angeles Unified School District takes the money from the schools where the percentage of white students is above 30% and gives to schools where the percentage of white students is less than 30%. The disgusting and racist disbursement of funds has grown more irrelevant with time as the law was passed back in the 1970s to deal with desegregation.
Parents, however, remain frustrated with what the cuts might mean for their children.
“When your class sizes are getting larger and you’re taking resources away from students, I mean as parents, you do want your kid to go to college,” one parent, Rosemary Estrada, said.
In an attempt to lessen the budget cuts, the district changed the school’s spending formula to one based on the number of students.
“Thankfully we’re going to keep our librarian. We’re going to keep our nurse, but we may lose a few teachers, but not as many as we once thought,” said Sheila Edmiston, one student’s parent.
Several jobs will still be lost and class sizes could grow. For many parents, the race-based reason of “too many white students” has made the cuts more difficult to swallow.
The news comes at a time when race relations grow more tense and the culture grows divided thanks to leftist radical anti-white liberals.

A domestic disturbance call was placed to Paris police that resulted in a raid wherein a man armed with scissors was shot to death, French publication Le Figaro reports.
The unfortunate shooting of a violent suspect resulted in leftist radicals and dissidents to take to the streets of Paris’ 19th district late Monday evening. The rioters began burning vehicles – because violence is something you riot over.
Tommy Robinson, founder of the European Defence League (EDL), shared footage on Twitter:

As Robinson justly points out, mainstream media outlets neglect to inform the world about the rioters:
— Tommy Robinson (@TRobinsonNewEra) March 28, 2017
What began as a peaceful protest turned into a violent altercation with the police. Rocks were being thrown both at the officers and their vehicles by the protestors turned rioters. Aside from damage to police vehicles (one caught on fire after being hit by a projectile), officers at the scene were also injured.
Reportedly the man who was shot, Mr. Liu, rushed police with scissors when they opened the door of his home resulting in his death.
The riots that broke out in the wake of Mr. Liu’s death are only part of a growing problem both in France and Europe at large. The recent Westminster Bridge Islamic terror attack happened only last week and since then many other instances of chaos and violence have occurred throughout Europe and abroad.
What once was a beautiful continent is now a hotbed for contentious politics and organized violence.

Washington-based think tank claims China nearing completion on man-made islands.
The U.S. think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies has recently analyzed satellite images that show China is nearing completion on an airbase in the South China Sea.
The new airbase would allow for the Chinese military to deploy aircraft and other necessary resources to areas in the seat where the ownership is hotly disputed.
An AP report describes China’s ambition to control territory in the region:
The [CSIS] analyzed recent satellite photos and concluded that runways, aircraft hangers, radar sites and hardened surface-to-air missile shelters have either been finished or are nearing completion.
The report, released Monday, appears to be the most conclusive indication yet that China is using its island-building project to give teeth to its claim over almost the entire South China Sea and its islands and reefs.
The report from the CSIS claims: “Beijing can now deploy military assets, including combat aircraft and mobile missile launchers, to the Spratly Islands at any time.”
China has drawn much criticism following the creation of seven other man-made islands with the U.S. and other countries accusing them of militarizing and expanding in order to validate their claims to geographical hotspots.

The New York Times and CBS News published vicious hit pieces on The Wounded Warrior Project in early 2016.
Recently the injured veterans charity was exonerated.
But The New York Times and CBS have yet to post corrections to their smear reports.
Meanwhile, wounded veterans suffer.
Here are a few snippets from Freedom Daily on the controversy.
The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) has been helping injured veterans since its inception in 2003, 2 years after the deadly terror attacks that rocked the nation on 9-11. Since its inception, the organization became the #1 veterans charity in the world. This year, WWP surpassed the 100,000 mark in terms of veterans they provide assistance to. Work the Wounded Warrior Project does has seen billions of dollars go to help severely injured veterans, and that doesn’t even include the charity’s day to day operations.
But now the truth has come out. The reports by the Times and CBS that Wounded Warrior Project was misusing funds has been completely debunked. Not only were tens of thousands of wounded veterans harmed by the lies maliciously told about WWP, but two of the founding members were fired by the board of directors, and now they’re speaking out.
Dave Philipps, a reporter for the Times, had been contacted by the group of fired WWP employees in June of 2015. Giordano relayed to us that while some former employees spoke glowingly about what WWP had done for them personally, they lied about how the charity was being managed. They had a score to settle. And Philipps ate it up.
Nothing good that Philipps was told about WWP made it into his final article for the New York Times.
What did Philipps leave out of his hit piece?That employees told him that WWP saved their lives and even their marriages. That Dan Nevins, an Army vet who lost both of his legs in Iraq literally cried about what WWP had done for him. Philipps laughed about it. That WWP had awesome morale and the lowest employee turnover for any charity – half the industry standard. That WWP had been voted the best non-profit to work for 3 years in a row – Philipps said it was worst. That WWP set up a private health care network with $70 million over three years to 4 hospitals for injured veterans to receive free mental health counseling. That WWP set up a Trust Fund with $100 million to take care of veterans whose parents couldn’t so they wouldn’t have to have the government put them into nursing homes. That Al Giordano and Steve Nardizzi got rave reviews from the WWP Board of Directors for how they did their jobs… Every. Single. Year.
A third party company was even brought in to do the internal polling in order to avoid the possibility of employees feeling “pressured” to rate their bosses in a favorable light.
None of these things made it into the New York Times’ hit piece on the Wounded Warrior Project. Everything that was perceived to be negative about the charity, even the lies the disgruntled, fired employees told Philipps, made the cut, though. Imagine that.
The biggest lie the New York Times told about Wounded Warrior Project? That they only spent 60 cents of every dollar donated for wounded veterans.
The New York Times cited a report from charity auditor “Charity Navigator” that WWP spent “lavishly” on executives & administration rather than on vets. It turns out, the reporting was completely bogus, and just recently, WWP was afforded a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator, it’s top rating, for the fiscal year 2015. Of course, for the New York Times, the story is all that matters, regardless of who is hurt if the story is 100% BS.
Wounded Warrior Project’s past finances were audited by FTI consulting and the Better Business Bureau. They found that there was NO “lavish spending” on the part of WWP and that the charity, in fact, gave 81% of contributions to injured vets.

Kudos to Bill O’Reilly for covering the story in January.

The Western media missed an oh-so juicy nugget out Russia recently that should have set off alarm bells in Washington.
Asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova gave a long winded answer that can be read below. In her answer, Zakharova suggested Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private. The shocking statement can be found in the second to last paragraph of Zakharova’s answer highlighted in both bold and italic.
You could just imagine the headlines this would have made if this was about a Trump administration official.
But because it is about Barack Obama, arguably one of the worst presidents in US history, the liberal mainstream media ignores this completely.
Briefing by Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, Moscow
As per mid.ru:
Question: How do you see the future of Russian-US diplomatic relations in the context of the current atmosphere in Washington? Can you confirm that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will come to Moscow in April?
Maria Zakharova: Apparently, many volumes have been written about the development of Russian-US relations. I announced the release of the Foreign Ministry’s yearend Diplomatic Bulletin and even showed it at the previous briefing. I believe that about 20 per cent of that bulletin was devoted to Russian-US relations, the way we see them, how we want them to develop, what we expect from Washington, what we are willing to do with the United States, the priority areas of cooperation, areas where our cooperation should be revived without delay and the areas where this can wait, at least for a limited time. This issue has been covered in interviews by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, comments by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov and in numerous statements made at all levels by representatives from various Russian agencies, political analysts and politicians, as well as officials from the legislative and executive authorities. We can talk about bilateral relations with a different degree of mastery, but we would like to start implementing our relationship at long last.
We provided our views on bilateral relations and the reasons for blocking them under President Obama. We said that we were willing to work with the new US administration, under President Trump. I don’t think we need to invent anything in this respect, because so much has been said before. Simply, we should start concrete practical work. We are ready for this.
You know that we always invite our American colleagues and diplomats to join bilateral or multilateral dialogues on issues in which the United States has traditionally played a big and active role, such as Syria, the consultations in Astana and many others. We expect Washington to formulate its foreign policy approaches in the form of a concept. We are ready for pragmatic and specific work on the principles that we have described many times.
As for the visit by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the information about it, this is what I can say. It’s not a secret that preparations for any visit include the coordination of the time when it can be announced. Visits by foreign ministers are public events that are never kept secret. At least, I don’t know about any secret visits by foreign ministers in Russia or the United States. Preparations for such a visit also include the coordination of the format, agenda and the date it can be announced to the public. It is a matter of propriety and respect for each other’s interests. One side proposes a date, and the other side is expected to accept it. This date should be acceptable to both sides, because the foreign ministers have packed schedules. The issue also concerns the coordination of the agenda by experts. One side informs the other side of the issues it plans to discuss, and the other side needs to respond that the agenda is acceptable. In other words, the sides need to reach agreements on many issues, after which they can announce an upcoming visit. This is how we work with our colleagues.
To tell the truth, over the past few years we’ve seen many strange things happen in Washington in connection with preparations for visits or talks by our foreign ministers. The US Department of State has more than once asked us not to announce planned visits until the last minute. This is not our tradition. We have been operating openly for years, but we have respected the requests we have received from our colleagues in Washington in the past few years. But what happened after that? First, the US Department of State asked us to keep the planned visit quiet and not to announce it until the last possible minute, until we coordinated the date. We did as they asked. But a day or two later the information was leaked by the US State Department and sometimes by the US administration. Frankly, this put Russia and the media in a strange situation, because they didn’t know who to believe – the official agencies or the many leaks.
It is difficult to say if this diplomatic communication is a US tradition or the latest technique. But it definitely doesn’t correspond to our traditions. We believe that everything we coordinate should be made available to the media in accordance with diplomatic procedure. When we coordinate a visit and the date for announcing it, the information should be made public calmly and as agreed. This is what we do in relations with our colleagues from other countries.
As I said, such cases in our relations with the US Department of State have become a bad tradition over the past few years. So, I can say in response to your question that we will make the date and format of contacts between the Russian and US foreign ministers public after we coordinate them. We won’t keep them quiet. At this point, I don’t have any information I can share with you. I can say that this visit and such contacts are possible in principle, but it would be premature to talk about timeframes.
Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked us to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office. Believe me, this could be very interesting information.
Our American colleagues must decide if they respect the diplomatic procedure, if they keep their word on the arrangements made between us, primarily arrangements made at their own request, or we create a few very nice surprises for each other.
We can only assume that if Obama loyalists still hiding in the White House continue to leak intel, it’s inevitable that Russia will drop a bomb about Obama.

A bill filed in the House of Representatives by Congressman Mo Brooks of Alabama cuts to the heart of the Obamacare problem with more brevity than most would expect.
Over the course of just two pages, the congressman from Huntsville laid out what is to be called the “Obamacare Repeal Act”. In even more tact, the meat and potatoes of the bill are boiled down to one sentence:
“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”
The bill would also repeal another law put into place by President Barack Obama, the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.Watch the latest video at video.foxbusiness.com
Currently, the bill Brooks presented has no co-sponsors, but Brooks believes there is enough weight to his proposal that he quipped, “If the American people want to repeal Obamacare, this is their last, best chance during the 115th Congress.”

Too Much Pressure—
Democratic leader Senator Chuck Schumer LOST IT TONIGHT and WENT OFF on a Trump supporter at a New York City restaurant.
— Fox News (@FoxNewsBreaks) March 28, 2017
Schumer started yelling at a former Jimmy Carter official for voting for Trump!
Joseph A. Califano Jr. voted for Donald Trump and not Crooked Hillary for President.
This triggered Schumer to go off in a restaurant.
FOX NEWS reported:
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.”
Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses.
He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner.
Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.
One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”

President Donald Trump has absolutely had it with the Democrats and the fake news media accusing him of working with the Russians.
Trump sent out a series of tweets suggesting that the Intel Committee should look into the Clinton’s and their Uranium deal with Russia. I love this man!
I can’t believe that there is no investigation into the Clinton’s for this Uranium deal to Russia. Hillary Clinton literally sold out our country to foreign governments while she was Secretary of State. Thank God she lost the election otherwise she would have sold whatever was left.
LOCK HER UP!
Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech….
