Days ago, an Ohio man drove a car into counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing 1 and wounding scores. Eyewitnesses called the act intentional – and video of the incident shows the car having ample time and space to accelerate before plowing recklessly into the crowd. No matter which side of the political spectrum you’re on, this is an act of cowardice and evil.
I disavow any violence or hate from either side – regardless if it’s Antifa or the Alt-Right.
In May of 2017, Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel overseeing the investigation into alleged ties and collusion between President Trump and Russia. Though CNN was quick to call Mueller “nonpolitical”, nothing could be further from the truth. For instance, WND has compiled a list of scandals Mueller oversaw during his tenure as FBI Director from 2001 to 2013; spanning both the Bush and Obama administrations.
Reported by WND, from AmericanLookout.com – here are some of the more well-known scandals:
The investigation into the mysterious murder of Seth Rich has been a long, convoluted saga – and that’s putting it lightly.
In the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, Seth Rich was shot on the streets of Washington, D.C. Though the police department labeled Rich’s murder as a “botched robbery”, Rich’s wallet, credit cards, and watch were left on his person. He was transported to the hospital but succumbed to his gunshot wounds just hours later. Since the murder, no official police report has been released publicly. No body cameras worn by responding officers has been released. Instead of answering (or even asking) any real questions, the mainstream media has been more than content to focus on the “botched robbery” angle of Rich’s murder and exclusively that.
Then, almost a full year after the murder in May 2017, Rod Wheeler – a private investigator working for the Rich family – confirmed that Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to his death. Fox News, after reporting Wheeler’s bombshell claim, eventually retracted the report giving deluge to accusations of the story being “baseless” and “discredited”. Late May, I also chronicled instances that didn’t add up with the Seth Rich investigation. Beyond that, the furor over the unsolved murder slowly fizzled out and slid into the back of the public’s collective conscious…
…That is, until now…
On July 21st, Anthony Scaramucci, affectionately known as “The Mooch” by the media (and everyone else), was hired to be President Trump’s White House Communications Director. His short tenure consisted of the following:
- The resignation of Sean Spicer
- The relentless attack of “leakers” within the Trump Administration
- Attacks on White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus for “leaking” information
- A published article of a rant by Scaramucci in regards to Priebus
- The firing of Priebus shortly after the rant was leaked
- The hiring of General John Kelly to replace Reince Priebus
- The termination of the Mooch by President Trump
Hated by some, loved by others, the Mooch’s short tenure was filled with one-liners targeting “leakers” within the administration. And no matter how you feel about The Mooch, his brash style alone was no reason to fire him after just ten days on the job.
Free Market Shooter has covered the saga of the Awan brothers since early February:
While most know about the Yemen raid, most do not know about the dismissal of the three Awan brothers, Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan. On February 2nd, they were abruptly removed from their positions of managing information technology for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Though they were initially suspected merely of stealing equipment, a connection with the previously-hacked computers of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) revealed something far more sinister:
Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.
However, there have been a number of developments since then, especially in the past few days. Imran Awan was arrested at Washington-Dulles International Airport trying to leave the US, but only after he transferred approximately $300,000 to Pakistan, and crushed hard drives from his former residence were turned over to authorities:
On Saturday, July 15th, Justine Damond was shot and killed by Officer Mohamed Noor after responding to a noise complaint made by Damond:
The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say.
Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
One notable difference between this shooting and others that make headlines is the fact that a black man (a Somali migrant, no less) shot and killed a white woman; one could only imagine the public’s reaction would be far different if the “race shoe” was on the other foot.
No matter the circumstances, the prudent thing to do in all instances of shootings is to wait until the facts come out before making any judgments. And in Noor’s case, the facts point towards a bad decision, which was spurred on by poor officer training and relaxed hiring standards that were focused on adding “members of the community” to the police force.
Saturday morning, President Trump launched a multi-tweet firestorm spanning ten tweets.
Though the topics of his ire wildly varied, one thing is apparent: Slowly, President Trump is switching to be on the offensive; as opposed to being on the attack. Interestingly, this is the closest thing to the fabled “pivot” (as mainstream media frothed at the mouth over back when he was on the campaign trail) I’ve seen Trump enact.
In an attempt to amp up the focus on his agenda, he called for his Senators to “step up to the plate” to “repeal and replace” Obamacare. After that was accomplished, he called for tax reform and updating infrastructure.
In a poll released on Monday by Bloomberg News, it was revealed that only a mere 6% of Americans think the Russian narrative is important. Overwhelmingly, Americans were more concerned with healthcare reform, unemployment, terrorism, and immigration over the baseless Russia hysteria plaguing the mainstream media.
Take note of the source: coming from the left-leaning Bloomberg means that this isn’t Fake News.
Last week, Free Market Shooter exposed Natalia Veselnitskaya as an anti-Trump, anti-Putin lawyer with deep ties to the Democratic party. In fact, despite her visa restrictions, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s DoJ granted her release under “extraordinary circumstances” to the US:
The Moscow lawyer had been turned down for a visa to enter the U.S. lawfully but then was granted special immigration parole by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for the limited purpose of helping a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, her client, defend itself against a Justice Department asset forfeiture case in federal court in New York City.
Instead of looking at Veselnitskaya and her overt connections to the Democratic party, the mainstream media has instead been focused on disproving realities about the lawyer’s true motives and allegiances. Just one day after Free Market Shooter posted our story, CNN ran a story deliberately trying to discredit sites like Free Market Shooter which brought Veselnitskaya’s past into the limelight:
Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. in June 2016, not only has proven ties with the Kremlin but also with the Obama administration.
The story goes like this…
In 2016, Rob Goldstone e-mailed Donald Trump Jr. – speaking on behalf of a mutual friend, Emin Agalarov – claiming to have incriminating evidence on Hillary Clinton and her dealings with Russia. After attempts at holding meetings via telephone that all fell through, Donald Trump Jr. learned Natalia Veselnitskaya landed in New York and decided to meet with her.
