Police officer Sean Gannon is a hero — plain and simple. His life should not have been cut so short at the young age of 32.
Gannon paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep our community safe when a thug allegedly opened fire on him while searching a home the criminal was hiding out in.
It is unfortunate the death penalty is not allowed in Massachusetts because Thomas Latanowich doesn’t deserve the right to breathe and is the perfect candidate for lethal injection.
This sad story that unfolded on Cape Cod should be a reminder of the daily sacrifice the men and women in blue make for our country and community every day.
President Donald Trump announced on Friday in a 9:00 PM press conference that the US will attack Syrian targets following the alleged gas attack by the Assad regime last weekend.
Missiles started flying immediately after the President’s comments.
US military officials announced on Saturday morning that EVERY missile fired last night hit its target.
The attack was a response that the Assad regime launched a chemical gas attack on the people in Douma, Syria on April 7th.
The same US-backed rebels who accused the Assad regime of a chemical attack also used chemical weapons against the Kurds in 2016.
Here is the full report released by the White House on their assessment of the alleged chemical attack in Douma on April 7, 2018.
US military officials announced on Saturday morning that EVERY missile fired last night hit its target.
The attack was a response to a allegations that the Assad regime launched a chemical gas attack on the people in Douma, Syria on April 7th.
Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the director of the Joint Staff, said that the coordinated strikes which struck targets in Syria overnight will set the country’s chemical weapons capability back “for years.”
He added that “none of our aircraft or missiles in this operation were successfully engaged” by Syrian regime.
An aviation disaster was narrowly averted on this day in 1990 when a wrongly installed panel of the windscreen on British Airways Flight 5390 fell out, causing the plane’s cockpit to decompress and its captain to be pulled halfway out of the aircraft at over 17,000 feet. Below is an animated recreation of the flight…
INGRAHAM: “It is interesting, the president’s elected over a year ago, he ran on being a non-interventionist. But these are two very limited, targeted, so far at least with this last one, military strikes. But nevertheless, when you look back on some of the president’s old tweets — and tweets can really come back and bite you, we know that. In 2013, ‘We should stop talking, stay out of Syria and other countries that hate us, rebuild our own country, make it strong and make it great again.’ ‘What I’m saying is, stay out of Syria,’ It goes on. ‘If the U.S. attacks Syria and hits the wrong target and hits civilians, there will be to hell to pay.” These tweets go on and on, mostly from September 2013, of course when Obama was still in. Is this just the reality of governance now, the reality of being commander in chief?”
NEIWEEM: “I think it’s the reality of when you step into that Oval Office and know what you only know when you’re the president, you’re looking at that information; you want to hit hard and want to be effective without have that ground footprint increase.”
INGRAHAM: “Yeah. There’s no ground troops — we have 2,000 people there. Not to minimize that. That’s a lot of troops. But –”
BRAMER: “We have 2,000 on the ground there and many, many more in the region. And I’ll back up what Chris said. The president doesn’t want to go in there. But he’s a human being. And when you look on TV and you see the horrible images of these children and these women —“
INGRAHAM: “—But as I said before, we can hold up what the bishops in South Sudan have shown the world community and nobody cares. What’s happening in South Sudan. We can see this in Nigeria. What happened to the girls taken by Boko Haram. There are horrific things; China’s still cutting babies out of wombs, they have re-education camps in China. I mean, yeah, it’s horrible, but there’s horrible stuff happening all over the world, not with probably chemical weapons, but with burnings, mutilations, mass rape. That’s all I’m saying: There’s only so much America can do. And I’m speaking for what I think are people out there who are worried. And they’re worried because they’re gun shy because of Iraq. They’re very worried about that. And that’s one of the reasons Trump won this election. Because unlike the Bushes and unlike Romney and Rubio, Trump came out and said, ‘You know something? It was a mistake, and we should rethink how we deploy our forces Middle East.’ And I think, obviously a lot of people, a majority of people, agree with that.”
Fired FBI Director and attention whore, James Comey, is causing quite a stir with his new memoir “A Higher Loyalty,” set to hit shelves April 17.
In his new book, Comey personally attacks Trump and appears to be using information from his classified memos.
James Comey also hints there is damaging information about former AG Loretta Lynch ‘still unknown to the American public.’
Of course there is. We still haven’t seen the unredacted Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting documents [apparently a conversation about golf and grandkids is considered to be sensitive enough for redactions].
Fox News reports:
James Comey’s cryptic reference in his new book to “a development still unknown to the American public” involving then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Hillary Clinton email probe is sparking furious speculation inside and outside the Beltway.
According to ABC News, Comey writes in “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” that he became the public face of the investigation partly because of the mysterious development which he felt could cast “serious doubt” on Lynch’s independence.
“Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,” Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a “development still unknown to the American public to this day.”
In November, Judicial Watch released 29 pages of Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting docs which were previously withheld by the Justice Department.
The FBI wasn’t even concerned about the scandalous meeting, all they cared about was hiding the details from the public.
A sitting attorney general met with the spouse of a presidential candidate who was under FBI investigation at the time, privately on an airport tarmac.
One week after the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting, Hillary Clinton was exonerated by the FBI of the investigation into her use of a private email server where she exchanged highly classified information.
The DOJ continues to stonewall FOIA requests for the unredacted documents related to this meeting.
In January, an attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow was furious after the DOJ blamed a “glitch” for withholding ‘missing’ Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting docs from the ACLJ.
Glitches, golf and grandkids. Nothing to see here, folks.

The highly-anticipated Inspector General report on the firing of former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe was releasedFriday afternoon.
The report is very damning; McCabe lied under oath several times.
The Inspector General report also presented new evidence Obama’s DOJ sought to shut down the FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation.
The report by the Office of Inspector General criticizes McCabe for “lack of candor” regarding his disclosure to Wall Street Journal reporters before the 2016 election.
McCabe lied at least three times under oath, he lied to the Inspector General and lied to James Comey.
Not only did McCabe deserve to be fired, he should be prosecuted and put in prison.
The Wall Street Journal, which is at the center of the accusation against McCabe’s media leaks did previously report that there was an internal struggle between the DOJ leadership and FBI agents investigating the Clinton Foundation.
New details show that senior law-enforcement officials repeatedly voiced skepticism of the strength of the evidence in a bureau investigation of the Clinton Foundation, sought to condense what was at times a sprawling cross-country effort, and, according to some people familiar with the matter, told agents to limit their pursuit of the case. The probe of the foundation began more than a year ago to determine whether financial crimes or influence peddling occurred related to the charity.
Some investigators grew frustrated, viewing FBI leadership as uninterested in probing the charity, these people said. Others involved disagreed sharply, defending FBI bosses and saying Mr. McCabe in particular was caught between an increasingly acrimonious fight for control between the Justice Department and FBI agents pursuing the Clinton Foundation case.
However, page 5 of the Inspector General report reveals more details of a top DOJ official expressing concerns FBI agents were taking overt steps in the Clinton Foundation investigation during the presidential campaign.
McCabe–PADAG Call on the CF Investigation (August 12)
McCabe told the OIG that on August 12, 2016, he received a telephone call
from PADAG [Principle Associate Deputy Attorney General] regarding the FBI’s handling of the CF Investigation (the “PADAG
call”). McCabe said that PADAG expressed concerns about FBI agents taking overt
steps in the CF Investigation during the presidential campaign. According to
McCabe, he pushed back, asking “are you telling me that I need to shut down a
validly predicated investigation?” McCabe told us that the conversation was “very
dramatic” and he never had a similar confrontation like the PADAG call with a highlevel
Department official in his entire FBI career.

Tennessee has done the right thing by defunding abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.
According to Live Action, “Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill this week” and “will now request a federal waiver which allows them to bar TennCare, Tennessee’s Medicaid program, from giving money to any abortion facility.”
“The governor…deferred to the will of the legislature on this bill as amended, and after reviewing the bill in its final form decided to sign the bill into law,” said Jennifer Donnals, Haslam’s press secretary.
When the bill passed the state legislature back in March, Rep. Jimmy Matlock (R-Lenoir City) pointed out that the state has effectively given the abortion giant nearly $1 million in just six years.
Funds that were once directed toward abortions will now be given to other healthcare providers, which obliterates the oft-repeated protests from Planned Parenthood that women will die unless they are given federal funds.

Rep. Steve Scalise grilled Facebook CEO and Chairman Mark Zuckerberg Wednesday over alleged bias against conservatives that manifests in Facebook’s algorithm.
“I know some of the people that work for Facebook, Campbell Brown said, for example, this is changing our relationship with publishers,” Scalise opened. “I do want to ask you about a study that was done dealing with the algorithm that Facebook uses to describe what is fed to people through the news feed.
“What they found was after this new algorithm was implemented that there was a tremendous bias against conservative news and content and a favorable bias towards liberal content, and if you can look at that, that shows a 16-point disparity, which is concerning.”
I DON’T TRUST TRUMP AND I SURE AS HELL DON’T TRUST JERRY BROWN TO SEND ANY MILITARY TO THE BORDER! IF BROWN SENDS GUARDSMAN IT WILL PROBABLY BE JUST “ONE”!!….TRUMP MUST HAVE THREATENED TO CUT OFF FUTURE FEDERAL FUNDS TO CALIFORNIA……Papa Mike
Via Daily Caller:
California Gov. Jerry Brown announced Wednesday that he will accept federal funds to add National Guard members to a statewide anti-crime program, but did not say how many of those troops would go to the U.S.-Mexico border as a part of President Donald Trump’s order.
In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Pentagon chief Jim Mattis, Brown said 400 additional National Guard Troops would join the 250 assigned to an ongoing program to combat transnational crime. The additional staffing will allow the Guard to support law enforcement operations against transnational gangs, human traffickers and drug smugglers “throughout the state,” he said.
Brown did not specify how many of the new troops would be sent to the border, where California already has 55 guardsmen.
The Justice Department will soon pause a legal-advice program used by illegal aliens in U.S. detention, the Washington Post reports.
The U.S. immigration courts will temporarily halt a program that offers legal assistance to detained foreign nationals facing deportation while it audits the program’s cost-effectiveness, a federal official said Tuesday.
Officials informed the Vera Institute of Justice that starting in April it will pause the nonprofit’s Legal Orientation Program, which last year held information sessions for 53,000 immigrants in more than a dozen states, including California and Texas.
The federal government will also evaluate Vera’s “help desk,” which offers tips to non-detained immigrants facing deportation proceedings in the Chicago, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and San Antonio courts. […]
The Justice Department is ramping up efforts to cut an immigration court backlog of 650,000 cases in half by 2020. Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week imposed production quotas on immigration judges to spur them to clear cases more quickly.
Last Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a zero-tolerance policy be enacted toward immigrants unlawfully entering the Southwest border between the U.S. and Mexico.
The Hill reports:
Sessions notified all federal prosecutors along that part of the border of the new policy in a memo Friday and directed them to make prosecuting criminal immigration offenses a priority.
He also directed prosecutors to work with the Department of Homeland Security to develop guidelines for prosecuting offenses under immigration law.
“To those who wish to challenge the Trump Administration’s commitment to public safety, national security, and the rule of law, I warn you: illegally entering this country will not be rewarded, but will instead be met with the full prosecutorial powers of the Department of Justice,” Sessions wrote.
“The situation at our Southwest Border is unacceptable,” Sessions said in the statement. “Congress has failed to pass effective legislation that serves the national interest — that closes dangerous loopholes and fully funds a wall along our southern border,” Sessions added.

Sen. Ted Cruz clearly rattled Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg Tuesday by grilling him about Facebook’s well-documented censorship of conservatives.
Zuckerberg had a relatively easy time facing questioning during his Tuesday testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees until Cruz took over the helm.
Cruz noted the number of examples of Facebook censoring conservatives, including labeling conservative commentators Diamond and Silk as “unsafe,” hiding stories about the IRS targeting conservatives and blocking over two dozen Catholic pages.
“To a great many Americans, that appears to be a pervasive pattern of political bias,” Cruz said. “Do you agree with that assessment?”
Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook’s location in the highly-liberal Silicon Valley could concern conservative users, but assured Cruz that the platform tries to be unbiased.
