ATF running warrantless searches on legal gun buyers

The Truth About GunsThe older ATF agent told him they were assigned to a task force investigating straw purchases. A straw purchase – a federal felony – occurs when someone buys a firearm on behalf of another person, who is unable to legally purchase a firearm themselves.

The agent said they were verifying that people who bought multiple firearms still had the guns in their possession. The homeowner had bought seven firearms since January 2022.

He asked the men for identification, which the agents and trooper produced. They admitted they did not have a search warrant. The doorbell camera recorded what happened next.

I have no words for how abusive this is. Checking serial numbers of guns after a legal purchase?

A possible explanation for so many mass shootings?

Gateway PunditHowever, one high school in Boston may have just taken the cake for the most radical form of indoctrination to date. Classroom materials from Charlestown High School’s “Sheltered English Immersion” (SEI) learning program surfaced this week showing the school is teaching foreign-born 9th- and 10th-grade students that political violence and assassination are legitimate forms of action, as part of the process of learning English.

According to The Epoch Times, which found the downloadable documents on the Boston Teacher’s Union (BTU) website, the discovery has sparked fears that some teachers are “indoctrinating these [newly-arrived, foreign-born] children to incite violence” whenever there is “perceived” oppression.

It would certainly explain a lot. How long has this been going on?

The breadth of the search warrant for Mar-A-Lago

Conservative TreehouseThis issue stands out for a host of reasons. One of them speaks to the mindset of a judge who would authorize the raid itself. What judge would authorize a raid on the home of the president with the parameters to seize “Any government and/or presidential record created between January 20, 2017 and January 20, 2021?”

That’s literally everything, including Christmas cards, notes, letters of appreciation from Americans, internal correspondence, the works. Every shred of documentary evidence associated with the office of the President from the day he stepped into office until the day he left. That’s the parameters for the seizure.

If that doesn’t showcase the targeting effort, nothing will. That is an absurd demand that no president in the history of this nation has ever faced. No DOJ official in any capacity past or present would ever consider that an appropriate parameter for a document seizure, until now. THAT showcases the intensity of the DOJ and FBI effort to target Donald J Trump.

Claiming that any presidential record from Trump's four years as President is subject to seizure is incredibly broad, as it allows the FBI to take literally any record they want. Warrants are supposed to be narrow and particular, and the statutes covering presidential records are not criminal ones. This entire search was clearly pretextual for something else; most likely, to obtain Trump's declassified records of the SpyGate coup attempts along with a generalized fishing expedition for whatever else might be politically useful.

Tina Peters suing over GOP primary recount

Gateway PunditColorado Secretary of State candidate, Tina Peters is suing the corrupt Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold due to her performing a recent recount that was illegally executed.

Peters wants a recount according to the law. She believes this will prove that she won the recent 2022 GOP primary.

It's very likely her race was tampered with, and a hand recount would prove it. Thus a hand recount is the last thing the "authorities" will allow. There is substantial evidence of tampering in the race, starting with a 20-30 point polling lead that somehow disappeared during the election.

Tina Peters is the individual who took forensic images of voting machines she was responsible for safeguarding, which revealed improper tampering with those machines following the 2020 election, and she has been running on a platform centered around election security. Background here.

Two ways to handle an active shooter

One way is to let law enforcement handle it, like in Uvalde, where hundreds of police stood around for an hour while an 18 year old killed children.

Another way is to allow ordinary citizens to be armed in public. 10 shots, 8 hits, no bystanders hit by the hero.

Americans trust armed citizens more than law enforcement to stop mass shooters.

Two LA politicians plead guilty to buying votes

Just The NewsA former police chief and current city council member in Louisiana have both pleaded guilty to federal charges in what prosecutors say was a vote buying scheme in the 2016 and 2020 elections.

Jerry Trabona, 72, the former Amite City police chief, and City Councilman Kristian “Kris” Hart, 49, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiring to pay and offering to pay voters in Tangipahoa Parish for voting in the 2016 primary and general elections.

But 2020 was the most secure election ever!

Notice how DOJ focuses on small fry, and even supposedly apolitical Just The News doesn't report a political party.

And about that... the cache at Duck Duck Go says Trabona is a Democrat, but if you follow the link, suddenly he's an independent.

This stuff gets scrubbed pretty damn fast.

Democrats are the party of political violence

Conservative TreehouseYikes, things are getting spicy in New York as Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin was attacked by a guy while giving a campaign speech in Monroe County near Rochester. A bystander intervened and removed a weapon from the hand of the attacker. Mr. Zeldin was unharmed.

Politics this cycle appear to be MAGA Republicans saying "Let's try the ballot box one more time before we have to open the ammo box", establishment Republicans saying "No, you can't open the ballot box to check that it is working properly", and Democrats saying "We double-dog-dare you to open the ammo box!"

Murkowski and Cheney need to go

Conservative TreehouseOne-way voters in Wyoming and Alaska could sound a resounding message of support for President Trump would be to succeed in the primary challenges to Liz Cheney (U-Wyoming) and Lisa Murkowski (U-Alaska) on Tuesday.

Cheney, of course, voted to impeach Trump and continues to participate in the Jan 6th Committee in the House, backstabbing Trump supporters along with her party and relying on Democrats for campaign funds and likely votes. Murkowski has already lost a primary once; she somehow managed to win as a write-in candidate after that, something that still makes me wonder. Alaska has apparently gone to jungle primaries now, something which usually favors Democrats. For Murkowski in particular, it's better to knock her out of the Senate in a primary rather than lose the Senate seat to a Democrat later.

Both primary elections are today, so if you live in Alaska or Wyoming, make your vote count.

AG claims transparency, DOJ requests court documents remain sealed

Conservative TreehouseOn Thursday August 11th, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the justice department was committed to transparency in order to retain their integrity with the American public. On Monday August 15th, Attorney General Garland asked the court to keep the records sealed

Legal InsurrectionNote the feds are using the Cincinnati incident. But the NY Times article they cite does not attribute a motive to the perp, and another article says he was on the feds radar for months and also does not attribute his attack to the Mar-a-Lago raid. The ABC News article is just a “wrap up smear” where the press repeats what the feds are saying about unspecified threats, and then the feds use the press reports as proof.

There is no doubt that if names of informants and witnesses were disclosed, it might pose a threat, but why not just redact those names? It appears the feds don’t even want to try to reasonably redact the affidavits, they don’t want anything disclosed. (As an aside, I don’t know if Trump’s lawyers would have copies of the affidavits, since there is no criminal proceeding, just an “investigation”).

Here's the thing. Everyone knows the FBI's "investigation" is bullshit. This administration -- not just the DOJ and FBI but the whole thing -- have to put up whatever they've got to justify their actions as anything more than blatant totalitarianism and political targeting. And everyone knows they can't, which means they won't. Secrecy is the only defense at this point.

Shocked, shocked to find a coverup going on in Washington

Just The NewsThe Democrat-led House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot expects to receive copies Tuesday of Secret Service text messages once thought to have been erased by the agency.

"You can imagine how shocked we were to get the letter from the inspector general saying that he had been trying to get this information and that [the texts] had, in fact, been deleted after he asked for them?" Lofgren asked. "We expect to get them by this Tuesday. "I was shocked to hear that they didn't back up their data before they reset their iPhones. That's crazy."

Was she shocked when the entire team of investigators working on the Mueller probe wiped their devices clean of messages after the controversy over Peter Strzok and Lisa Page's messages? No? Didn't think so.

Unlike with Trump's secret service, we won't be getting any copies of the deleted FBI text messages.

Grand jury abuse

Just The NewsA grand jury in Georgia issued a subpoena to Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., over his attendance at a December 2020 with former President Donald Trump in which he discussed efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.

This grand jury probe intended to produce a chilling effect on challenging, through the constitutional process, a stolen election. Objecting to the way the Georgia votes were allocated as Congress counts them is perfectly legitimate. Conflating that with some sort of criminal offense just means the Democrats will be able to steal future elections without being challenged. Which, obviously, is the intent.

Fulton County fraud exposed

UncoverDCThe complaint shows a granular dive into what appears to be a trail of deception to produce a certified recount in Fulton County. The complaint alleges that “votes were simply added onto batches” or “discovered” to make up the difference because officials couldn’t reconcile the recount. I am just going to say it; these two men are legends. If what they have found is true, the recount certified by Raffensperger in December of 2020 is nothing more than a flimsy attempt to fool the citizens of Georgia into believing the reported vote totals matched the number of physical ballots in the Fulton County general election. Just an FYI, voters of America, as the two men note, “In a perfect world, there should be one ballot for every vote recorded.”

If you think the 2020 elections were honest because they said they did a recount, read this.

Agent Provocateurs on January 6th

American Greatness Hence the Times is willing to transform Ray Epps from perpetrator into victim in order to influence the Narrative. Their proximate goal is signaled in the subtitle to their maudlin valentine: “Ray Epps became the unwitting face of an attempt by pro-Trump forces to promote the baseless idea that the F.B.I. was behind the attack on the Capitol.”

Ah. The “baseless” idea, you see.

Yes, even in that video taken on January 5, 2021, when Epps tells the crowd that the next day they must go “into the Capitol, into the Capitol,” members of the crowd start chanting “Fed, Fed, Fed.” They knew.

Yes, some well-meaning idiots probably wandered through the building to take selfies and, in one well known case, a podium. But they were led there by instigators, operatives, and informants.

AOC sort-of confirms capitol police opened doors on Jan 6th

Gateway PunditIn the video, AOC just made a confession saying that the Capitol Police opened the door wide on January 6.

“These insurrectionists and that there were actual officers working with this, and we never got to the bottom of that, and we never got any answers about that. And then to this day, we’re just supposed to pretend that that never happened. I have no idea what happened to the people on the inside who were very clearly sympathetic with what was going on and opening the doors wide open for that. And I’m supposed to sit here and pretend like none of that ever happened,” angry AOC said.

Sympathizers or a setup? I'm betting the latter.

Election issues in Fulton County, GA

EmeraldA formal complaint (obtained exclusively by Emerald Robinson) has just been filed with the Georgia State Election Board regarding “errors” in the vote counting in Fulton County that impacted the stolen 2020 election. This 84-page complaint (which is too long a document and too large a PDF file to include here) explains in detail how Fulton County failed to provide an accurate vote tally for the 2020 election, and it has been filed by investigative journalist Kevin Moncla along with Joseph Rossi.

Apparently Fulton County has 17,000 ballots they can't account for, don't have images for, and that were also missing when they tried to recount the votes.

The margin of Biden's win in the whole state of Georgia was just barely over 10,000 votes.

About Putin's price hike

Battleswarm BlogOn May 12, Biden’s Interior Department blocked a proposal to open up more than one million acres of land in Alaska for oil and gas drilling. Two days later, Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency blocked plans to expand an oil refinery in the US Virgin Islands.

All while trying to blame the price of gas on Putin.

Sure, it's not all Biden's admin limiting supply. Inflation plays a big role and Biden takes a lot of that blame too.

About those red flag laws...

Clayton CramerThe man charged with killing seven people at a Chicago-area July Fourth parade slipped past the safeguards of an Illinois "red flag" law designed to prevent people deemed to have violent tendencies from getting guns, officials revealed on Tuesday....

Sergeant Chris Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff's Office said earlier in the day that Crimo had legally purchased a total of five guns, including the suspected murder weapon, despite having come to law enforcement's attention twice for behavior suggesting he might harm himself or others.

The first instance was an April 2019 emergency-911 call reporting Crimo had attempted suicide, followed in September of that year by a police visit regarding alleged threats "to kill everyone" that he had directed at family members, Covelli said....

A suicide attempt probably shouldn't be a permanent bar on firearms ownership, but threatening to kill your whole family probably should be -- at least if the family takes it seriously enough to have the police confiscate his knives.

Did the killer's juvenile record get cleared, or was it that he was never actually convicted, just arrested?

Either way, the red flag laws were in place and did not help.

I sort of wonder if that part of the recent legislation was just an excuse to funnel money to blue states.

DOJ thwarted Trump release of declassified documents

Just The Newsn the final hours of the Trump presidency, the U.S. Justice Department raised privacy concerns to thwart the release of hundreds of pages of documents that Donald Trump had declassified to expose FBI abuses during the Russia collusion probe and then defied a subsequent order to release the materials after redactions were made, according to interviews and documents.

The previously untold story of how highly anticipated declassified material never became public is contained in a memo obtained by Just the News from the National Archives that was written by then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows just hours before Trump left office on noon of Jan. 20, 2021.

Meadows' memo confirmed prior reporting by Just the News that Trump on Jan. 19, 2021 declassified a binder of hundreds of pages of sensitive FBI documents that show how the bureau used informants and FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and misled both a federal court and Congress about flaws in the evidence they offered to get approval for the investigation.

The declassified documents included transcripts of intercepts made by the FBI of Trump aides, a declassified copy of the final FISA warrant approved by an intelligence court, and the tasking orders and debriefings of the two main confidential human sources, Christopher Steele and Stefan Halper, the bureau used to investigate whether Trump had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

In the end, multiple investigations found there was no such collusion and that the FBI violated rules and misled the FISA court in an effort to keep the probe going.

The documents that Trump declassified never saw the light of day, even though they were lawfully declassified by Trump and the DOJ was instructed by the president though Meadows to expeditiously release them after redacting private information as necessary.

Of course they did. I'm just furious Meadows was stupid enough to give them the document back to redact under those circumstances. He's blaming DOJ, but complains about how agencies had been resisting similar releases during the entire term. OF COURSE DOJ was going to run out the clock at that point.

Just The NewsA senior Justice Department official recently flagged by a U.S. senator in an FBI whistleblower probe into alleged politicization of prosecutions played a key role in the Lois Lerner IRS scandal a decade ago in which conservative Tea Party groups were improperly targeted for scrutiny, government emails and congressional evidence shows.

Richard Pilger, the current chief of the DOJ Elections Crime Branch of the department's Public Integrity Section, engaged in discussions in 2010 and 2013 with Lerner and other IRS officials about ways to pursue criminal prosecutions of conservative nonprofits, the records show.

Well why wouldn't he? He got away with it last time.

COVID-19 election shutdown in 2022?

Conservative TreehousePolitico is reporting on the likelihood that Joe Biden is preparing to extend the national COVID-19 state of emergency through the 2022 midterm elections.

The debate, as outlined in just about every media narrative surrounding renewals of a national COVID emergency, is obtusely presented as if the primary political concern is public health.

Again, everyone must pretend not to know the true motive of the “emergency” is extending unilateral executive power and all of the control mechanisms therein. One mechanism would include the use of ‘Mail-in election ballots‘, which has absolutely nothing to do with public health.

The article appears to be somewhat testing the proverbial public winds.

They tried monkeypox and it isn't inciting panic, except perhaps among gay men who frequent public orgies, where perhaps some panic is warranted. Trying COVID again seems likely to flop. But, key point: many of the purplish jurisdictions that allowed dropboxes and other rule changes in 2020 that facilitated fraud have not changed the rules back. All they need is a little panic about COVID on the media and they can point to the stuffed-full-by-2000-mules dropboxes as evidence of another mail-in election victory for Democrats.

Twitter has just announced they will censor claims of fraudulent election results.

The fraud is already planned.

New Mexico election audit presentation for Otero County

Gateway PunditElection security is almost nonexistent. “The systems and the processes that exist are like swiss cheese.”
Wherever they went they received full-fledged resistance when wanting to look at the voting systems.
The password for Michigan and New Mexico voting system access was “123456” and you can access all the administrative menus. You can go in days after an election and add ballots and adjust the time and print it out. This capability should not exist in the system.
Microsoft SQL software was found in Michigan, New Mexico and Arizona. It does not need to be there. It can be accessed without any password and you have “keys to the kingdom”. You can anything you want with the data and change anything you want with SQL.

And a lot more. Watch the whole thing, though to be fair, you can probably skip the public comment period at the end and the somewhat religious introduction.

The artificial food crisis

Conservative TreehouseThings are escalating quicky in the Netherlands [Backstory Here]. Video has surfaced of Dutch police opening fire with real bullets on an unarmed protesting farmer who drove his tractor around a police roadblock. [Source and Source]

Several reports from the Netherlands highlight government efforts to stop Dutch farmers from protesting and blocking transit points. As a result, Dutch farmers have been taking rural routes to their protest destinations and local law enforcement have been trying to stop them with police roadblocks.

Two videos appear to show large farming tractors, easily able to overcome traditional street curbs, driving around the one of the police roadblocks as a police officer opens fire and shoots twice at the second tractor. An image of a bullet hole in the cab of the tractor appears to confirm live rounds are being fired at the farmers.

Conservative TreehouseThe politicians in Dutch government recently passed sweeping new climate regulations that will result in more than a third of farmers losing their business. The government announced a €25 billion plan to radically reduce the number of livestock in the country in order to curtail emissions.

As the Guardian reports, “A deal to buy out farmers to try to reduce levels of nitrogen pollution in the country had been mooted for some time,and was finally confirmed after the agreement of a new coalition government in the Netherlands earlier this week.” The plan is to reduce farming in the Netherlands, by a “one-third reduction in the numbers of pigs, cows and chickens in the country.” However, the farmers are fighting back.

While Biden is predicting food shortages, government in the Netherlands are trying to prevent farmers from farming in the name of climate change. The farmers are fighting back, and getting shot at. The stakes are high.

Sarah thinks this is the start of the revolution, except the news is suppressing it. Grocery store distribution centers burning down suggests she may be right.

I tend to see it a little differently.

Study: increased risk of heart problems after COVID vaccine

Gateway PunditA peer-reviewed study from researchers in France has concluded that both the experimental Pfizer and Moderna vaccines significantly increase the risk of myocarditis compared to the unvaccinated.

While both mRNA therapies were found to be linked to the life-threatening heart condition, the Moderna jabs results were particularly shocking, especially among young adults, as researchers found the risk for myocarditis diagnosis following the Moderna jab was 44 times higher risk for individuals aged 18 to 24 years old.

As for Pfizer’s jab – which fared better, but not by much – the same age group experienced a 13x elevated risk for the serious condition, according to the study that was published last week in the scientific journal, “Nature.”

More confirmation of the danger that comes from the COVID vaccines.
