Via Breitbart:

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed Wednesday that U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehending Haitian migrants illegally entering the United States through the southern border is “worse than what we witnessed in slavery

“What we witnessed takes us back hundreds of years. What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery,” Waters, who serves as the Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, stated during a rainy press conference steps away from the U.S. Capitol.

“Cowboys with their reins in hand whipping black people, Haitians, into the water where they’re scrambling and falling down and all they’re trying to do is escape the violence in their country,” the longtime California Democrat added.

Democrats have seized on the images, accusing horse-mounted CBP agents of using whips to prevent migrants from attempting to cross from Mexico into Texas — a claim that agents say is patently ludicrous.

“With basic knowledge and two brain cells, anyone knows those agents use split reins. They do use them as a whip, on their horses,” one agent told Fox News.

George W. Bush to hold fundraiser for Wyoming congresswoman who has sparred with Donald Trump

WASHINGTON—The race for Wyoming’s single U.S. House district has pitted two of the biggest names in Republican politics against one another: both of the party’s living former presidents.

Former President George W. Bush’s first campaign event of the 2022 midterms will be a fundraiser to support Rep. Liz Cheney, the Wyoming Republican who is among former President Donald Trump’s top targets to unseat. The fundraiser will be held next month in Dallas, according to a copy of an invitation viewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Ms. Cheney is a daughter of Mr. Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney, and is one of the most outspoken critics of Mr. Trump, whom she has blamed for instigating the riot in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, when his supporters attempted to block certification of the 2020 election results.

Her criticism of Mr. Trump and his false claims that his critics stole the election from him led her Republican House colleagues to oust her from party leadership in May.

Trump endorsed Harriet Hageman, one of Ms. Cheney’s Republican challengers, earlier this month. Mr. Trump has called Ms. Cheney a “warmongering fool” and a “horrible human being.”

Wyoming state Sen. Anthony Bouchard has also

opened a primary bid and had raised about $550,000 as of June 30.

Ms. Cheney, meanwhile, has responded to Mr. Trump’s attacks with the two best fundraising quarters of her political career. She raised $1.5 million in the first three months of the year and $1.9 million in the following three. John Boehner and Paul Ryan, both former GOP House speakers, have helped raise money for her, and Republican Sens. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Mitt Romney of Utah have all contributed to her campaign from their respective political committees.

Mr. Bush’s fundraiser for Ms. Cheney would come five weeks after he urged the nation to confront the threat of domestic terrorism during his speech commemorating the 20-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” Mr. Bush said. “But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit. And it is our continuing duty to confront them.”

The remarks were viewed as a response to the riot inside the U.S. Capitol earlier this year and drew a rebuke two days later from Mr. Trump.

“The World Trade Center came down during his watch,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “Bush led a failed and uninspiring presidency. He shouldn’t be lecturing anybody!”

Mr. Bush’s fundraiser is scheduled for Oct. 18. Co-hosts for the event include Karl Rove, a longtime political adviser for Mr. Bush who also consulted with Mr. Trump during his 2020 re-election campaign, and former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R., Texas), who served as U.S. ambassador to NATO under Mr. Trump.

Other co-hosts include former Hunt Oil Co. Chief Executive Ray Hunt, former Bush White House counsel Harriet Miers and former Bush White House counselor Karen Hughes.

Biden’s Approval Rating Hits New Low of 43%; Harris’ Is 49%

 

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Biden’s rating down six points since August, 13 points since June
  • Independents’ approval of Biden is 37%, down from 55% in June
  • Kamala Harris’ 49% job approval rating matches Biden’s in 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Eight months after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, his job approval rating has fallen six percentage points to 43%, the lowest of his presidency. For the first time, a majority, 53%, now disapproves of Biden’s performance.

These findings are from a Sept. 1-17 Gallup poll that was conducted after the U.S. military evacuated more than 120,000 people from Afghanistan. The United States’ exit from the nation’s longest war was marred by the Taliban’s quick takeover of most of the country and a suicide bombing at the airport in Kabul, which killed 13 U.S. service members. Over the same period, COVID-19 infection rates, nationally, were surging, leading to hospital overflows in some regions.

Biden Tax Plan Would Allow Illegals To Get A Tax ID Number To Claim $300/Mo Tax Credit…

Senator Mitt Romney said:
@SenatorRomney
The President’s “human infrastructure bill” would allow illegal immigrants to get $300/month, per child, by obtaining a tax ID number once they’re here. It’s outrageous. I can’t think of a more enticing reason to enter our country illegally–at the expense of American tax payers.

PROSECUTORS GIVE ALLEN WEISSELBERG 3 MILLION NEW REASONS TO HELP SEND DONALD TRUMP TO PRISON

Is Donald Trump going to live out his twilight years in prison? That‘s obviously a scenario that many people would love to see come to fruition, not just because of the immense damage he did to the country and democracy during his four years in office, but because of the fact that he’s spent his entire life escaping any and all consequences for being what legal experts call an “amoral sack of shit.” And while at the end of the day we can’t say for sure whether Trump will spend his final days in a prison cell, blathering away to his fellow inmates about how the 2020 election was stolen from him, or if he’ll simply make some unsuspecting Mar-a-Lago busboys listen to his rants about Joe Biden, windmills, and having to flush the toilet “10 [to] 15 times,” recent revelations suggest his outlook is not good.

The Daily Beast reports that a defense attorney for longtime Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, who was charged in July with 15 felony counts including criminal tax fraud, grand larceny, falsifying business records, and scheming to defraud the government, revealed in court on Monday that prosecutors have discovered a “tranche of evidence in the basement of a coconspirator in the Trump Organization tax fraud case.” Though it’s not clear who the coconspirator is, two sources close to the investigation told The Daily Beast that “prosecutors have been more closely scrutinizing Matthew Calamari, a Trump bodyguard who rose through the ranks to become the company’s chief operating officer,” while others believe the individual in question may be Trump Organization controller Jeff McConney, who has been Weisselberg’s deputy for years and has already testified before the grand jury, according to the outlet. Equally significant? According to Weisselberg‘s lawyer, Bryan C. Skarlatos, the defense has “strong reason to believe there could be other indictments coming.” Obviously, those could be for any current or former Trump Organization employees, from Calamari to Trump’s three eldest children, to the ex-president himself. (“We remain in discussions with the district attorney’s office relating to Matthew Calamari Sr.,” Calamari’s lawyer, Nicholas Gravante, told Bloomberg on Monday. “But we continue to believe there is no basis for indicting him. If they presently intended to indict him, I would have been informed. I haven’t been and, in fact, have not been informed to the contrary.”)

Attorneys for Weisselberg—who, like the Trump Organization, has pleaded not guilty—brought up the new evidence while trying to get the presiding judge to push back an eventual trial date, arguing that they need more time to review what they said is more than 3 million documents, according to The Daily Beast. Prosecutor Solomon Shinerock took issue with Skarlatos’s complaint, noting that, as CFO of the company, the documents would be very familiar to Weisselberg. “They are almost exclusively and an overwhelmingly majority are Trump Organization records,” Shinerock said. “Mr. Weisselberg has been with the Trump Organization for 35 years and he’s the chief financial officer. And while he may not have technical access to certain of the records, as to the financial records, Mr. Weisselberg is the boss.” The judge set the next hearing in the case for January 22, 2022, and told lawyers to expect that a trial will likely begin in late August or early September 2022, Bloomberg noted.

 

Of course, if prosecutors have their way, there won’t be a trial, sources told The Daily Beast, as the Manhattan district attorney’s office is trying to convince Weisselberg to flip and cooperate against Trump. Some people, like former FBI agent Phil Andrew, believe that’s never going to happen, arguing that the longtime Trump Organization exec will stay loyal in the hopes of both remaining in Trump’s good graces and keeping his $940,000-a-year job. “He’s going to have to ride this in and demonstrate loyalty to end, because that’s his meal ticket,” Andrew told Bloomberg. Others have slightly different predictions:

Weisselberg may now be questioning whether continued loyalty will be rewarded, said John Moscow, a former senior white-collar prosecutor in the Manhattan district attorney’s office. Though still at the Trump Organization, Weisselberg was removed as CFO following the indictment, and he no longer serves as treasurer and secretary for many of the company’s subsidiaries.

“That’s a big change in his life, and if other people at the company are being told not to talk to him because they might be called to testify, that’s a change too,” said Moscow. “If I’m representing someone in that office, I would have to advise my client that someone like him may flip and may be wearing a wire.”

Former Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to federal charges in 2018 and has since become one of his ex-boss’s fiercest critics, said loyalty is a one-way street for Trump.

MORE TRUMP LIES

  • The US left aircraft, vehicles, guns, and other equipment in Afghanistan during the troop pullout.
  • Trump claimed Sunday that China and Russia were studying abandoned Apache helicopters.
  • A Pentagon spokesperson told Insider: “No Apaches were left behind in Afghanistan.”

Former President Donald Trump has claimed, without providing evidence, that China and Russia were seizing helicopters abandoned by the US military in Afghanistan and plundering their secrets.

During its swift pullout from Afghanistan, the US military left behind aircraft, land vehicles, guns, and scores of other equipment.

“I guarantee that China, Russia already have our Apache helicopters, and they’re taking them apart to find out exactly how they’re made. They’re the best in the world by far,” Trump said during an interview on “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson” that aired Sunday.

“And they’re taking them apart so they can make the exact same equipment. They’re very good at that. It’s a disgrace.”

Speaking from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump offered no evidence for his remarks, but when asked if he still received US intelligence briefings, he said: “I get if I want. I get what I want. I hear what’s going on.”

“By the way, you don’t need intel briefings. All you have to do is read the news or turn on the television,” he said.

A Pentagon spokesperson told Insider, “No Apaches were left behind in Afghanistan.”

In the interview, Trump went on to slam the Biden administration’s handing of the Afghanistan pullout.

“It’s the most incompetently handled withdrawal in history. There’s never been anything like this, where we gave them $85 billion worth of brand-new, beautiful equipment,” he said.

Trump’s reference to the $85 billion worth of equipment is inflated: As The Washington Post previously reported, that figure appears to be a high estimate for all spending appropriated for Afghanistan since 2001, and only a fraction of that went to equipment. The value of the equipment left behind in Afghanistan and seized by the Taliban is also unclear.

The US military said last month that it had permanently disabled more than 150 vehicles and aircraft before it left so they could “never be used again,” though Taliban fighters have been able to capture other arsenal.

Earlier this month a Times of London journalist reported that the Taliban used US-made weapons and handcuffs in their battle for Panjshir, the last Afghan province resisting their rule.

One Nation Under God

 

This interesting prayer was given in Kansas, USA, at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people.

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

“Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: “Woe to those who call evil good”, but that is exactly what we have done.

* We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

* We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.

* We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.

* We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.

* We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

* We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

* We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

* We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

* We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.

* We have abused power and called it politics.

* We have embezzled public funds and called it essential expenses.

* We have institutionalized bribery and called it sweets of office.

* We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.

*We have polluted the air with profanity and called it freedom of expression.

* We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh GOD, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!”

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively.

The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa and Korea.

With the LORD’S help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and WHOLEHEARTEDLY become our desire so that we again can be

called “ONE NATION UNDER GOD.”

Taliban Death Squads Track Down And Kill 4 Afghan Counterterrorism Agents, Pulling Out Their Fingernails Before Shooting Them…

 

Via Yahoo News:

Elite Taliban death squads have tracked down and killed at least four Afghan counterterrorism agents since August 22, The Sunday Times reported.

The men were members of two units working out of the National Directorate of Security (NDS) and had been trained by British and US forces, the newspaper said.

A brother of one of those killed told The Sunday Times the Taliban came for his brother at their home outside Kabul in August.

“My brother was shot three times in the head and once in the chest and I was shot twice in the left shoulder and arm,” the man said, per the newspaper. “I don’t know how I survived.”

Another of the four men killed had all his fingernails pulled out before he was shot, The Sunday Times said.

A senior manager working at the headquarters of the NDS told The Sunday Times that the Taliban took possession of laptops and paperwork from the headquarters after taking Kabul on August 15.
