    EXCLUSIVE: Iraq War Hero and Triple Amputee Brian Kolfage Refutes SDNY Charges – NY Agents Abused Him Upon Arrest for Charges that Were Bogus
    By Joe Hoft – Published September 19, 2020 at 5:40pm

    Three weeks ago war hero and triple amputee Brian Kolfage was arrested for bogus charges related to his, Bannon’s and two other gentlemen’s efforts in building a wall on the Southern Border. The 15 New York USPIS agents who arrested him dragged him into their arrest vehicle with his one good arm!

      That SDNY office is particularly a problem, it’s been weaponized by the Democrat oligarchs and they’ve parsed the law to allow its reach to extend across the country.

      If the charges are all that solid than why use the USPIS police instead of going for the FBI? Did the DoJ check it first and, considering all of their other problems with ‘questionable’ persecutions, decide this one too sticky even for them? Only team left in the dugout was the Postal Inspectors.

      I Thre Federal prosecutors are threarening Kolfage with a gag order if he: “…persists in making extrajudicial statements that are likely to interfere with the Court’s ability to conduct a fair trial with an impartial jury in this case…”. The ‘fair and impartial trial’ phrase was not in quotes and followed by a ‘ROTFLMAO’ emoji.

      We will soon see the working, conservative people in this country swapping positions with the BLM as the DoJ rolls out its new fleet of Roland Freisler clones ready to use the law as a spiked club to suppress any challenges to the Progressive dogma. I just hope someone has a video of Kolfage being arrested…imagine how this would have gone had he been black.

    Good morning, everybody! Beautifully cool and sunny here today.

    Excellent article about Supreme Court appointments.

    https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/09/what-it-all-comes-down-to.php?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=sw&utm_campaign=sw

    In the coming weeks, as the struggle to confirm a Supreme Court nominee fires up, we will be inundated with facts about past confirmation timetables and other “precedents.” Advocates will try to elevate past practices to matters of principle, and maybe even to matters of morality.

    I think all of these arguments should be ignored. The only rule that applies, and it’s a reasonable one, is that Supreme Court nominees get confirmed when the president’s party has secured enough support from the electorate to muster the 50 Senate votes needed to confirm.

    Voters didn’t give Democrats enough Senate votes to confirm Merrick Garland (or to get him the waste of time a hearing would have amounted to). That’s all there was to that story.

    It’s not clear whether voters have given President Trump enough votes to confirm a nominee this close to a presidential election or, if Trump loses, in the months afterwards. If voters haven’t, that’s all there will be to that story, with this caveat.

    Voters in Utah and Alaska must have thought, when they elected Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski, that they were giving Trump a vote to confirm a qualified Supreme Court nominee at any point in the calendar or election cycle. Thus, if Trump can’t get a nominee confirmed because of Romney and/or Murkowski (to take two important examples), it will be a tough pill to swallow.

    But we may have to swallow it, and distribute the blame among the two Senators and the voters they duped.

    Morning everyone. I’m in a group of people who started a keto diet two weeks ago. I’ve read you get past the cravings. For a week I was fine. Now I want one of every bread, cake, pie, and potato and corn dish there is in the whole world.

    Our favorite Sunday columnist discusses POTUS and his positive moves in the ME, Princeton and their “brilliance”, along with a prediction about the SCOTUS opening. Enjoy.

    Five Rare Blue Diamonds Discovered at Cullinan Mine

    The blue diamonds were found in the main mine located about 40 kilometers east of the capital, Pretoria, S.A.

    Lots of fascinating articles at http://www.geologyin.com/

    OK, I’ll take one of the blue diamonds and combine it with peacock rocks to make a fabulous necklace to wear to ? or maybe just around the apartment…I am soooo bloody bored….

        I’ll send over an irradiated, non-flawless blue diamond pinky finger ring since I have absolutely no place to wear it anymore. Of course I could just wear it to Walmart and no one would think it was real. LOL!

        I was thinking recently it would be fun to take some of my jewelry and put it in a small shopping bag and leave it on park bench. Give someone a nice surprise. Haha!

          Thanks, but I have plenty of my own jewelry (some very nice) that I don’t wear any longer. I have already given some of it to my daughter. She can use it or sell the rest after I’m gone.

    Poisoner apprehended (Canadian woman, apparently.)

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/sep/20/woman-suspected-ricin-letter-sent-trump-arrested-g/

    A woman suspected of trying to poison President Trump has reportedly been arrested.

    CNN reported Sunday evening, citing “a U.S. law enforcement official,” said that the unnamed woman was taken when she tried to cross from Canada into the U.S.

    A package containing the poison ricin was sent to Mr. Trump earlier this week but intercepted by law enforcement.

    The woman was carrying a gun when arrested, CNN reported.

    Charges are expected to be filed by U.S. prosecutors in Washington, although the short investigation has been a joint U.S.-Canadian enterprise.

      Mmmm, wonder how she got a gun in Canada. There is heavy gun control there. Handguns are uncommon. No one in my extended Canadian family has one. Most have hunting rifles. A person has to register all firearms and that’s been the law since forever. No gun may be purchased or inherited without going through serious training and investigation.

    If you never have watched these Viva Frei/Barnes Law live streams, this is a good one to watch. Barnes explains why he doesn’t back Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court, and it makes sense. He says she’s strongly corporate, not strong on civil liberties, would likely be another John Roberts, and he thinks that she wouldn’t get approved by the Senate. He favors the Cuban judge from Florida, Barbara Lagoa. As he puts it, Barrett is politically favored because she was a clerk on the Supreme Court. Lagoa wasn’t.

      Barnes’ point is that it is most important to seat a 9th SC justice; the absolute most important thing is to have an appointee that is most likely to be approved by the Senate. Lagoa will be hard to go against: Latina, female, immigrant. And she is a good candidate, a daughter of working class immigrants, pro civil liberties etc.

      If we only have eight Justices when the eventual election cases come to the court, it could cost Trump the Presidency.

      I read some things about her last time that gave me pause, before Kavanaugh. A lot of people are cheering for her, I’m not so sure. And I very much agre that she would be very hard to get confirmed.
