Nicaragua Arrests 4 ISIS Suspects Believed to be Making Way to U.S. Border

Nicaraguan authorities have confirmed the arrests of four ISIS terror suspects who entered the country with a group of migrants, according to Breitbart.

The news outlet reported on Monday that three of the four men had been flagged by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as ISIS suspects and asked Mexico to help locate them as they believed the men were making their way to the U.S. border.

Breitbart reports:

The three men are identified as Mohamed Ibrahim and Mahmoud Samy Eissa from Egypt, and Ahmed Ghanim Mohamed Al Jubury from Iraq. According to Teletica, the three men held travel documents from Costa Rica issued on June 9. The fourth man, Mustafa Ali Mohamed Yaoob from Iraq, had travel documents issued on June 13.

The four men were deported to Costa Rica and are being held at an immigration detention center. Costa Rican authorities claim that the travel alert was issued after the group entered the country and they had no prior knowledge about the group’s ISIS affiliations.

Meadows Warns Mueller: “Better be Prepared” for GOP Cross-Examination

Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) is warning Robert Mueller that he “better be prepared” for the Republican cross-examination that will occur during the July 17 House Judiciary and Intelligence Committee hearings.

“It is not a good day for America, but Bob Mueller better be prepared because I can tell you, he will be cross-examined for the first time and the American people will start to see the flaws in his report,” said Meadows while speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham last night.

The congressman said it is imperative to protect the civil liberties of those involved in the Democrats’ Trump-Russia witch hunt.

“We have to protect our civil liberties,” he said. “Whether they’re Republican or Democrat or in between, we have to protect those. This is a sad day for civil liberties and those who love those. Those rights that we have.”

“Yet it’s a worse day for Congress because … what Adam Schiff and them have done, they have basically harassed the president and put forth a political agenda,” he continued.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Fox News’ Shannon Bream last night that Republicans have many questions for Mueller surrounding the Democratic bias within the special counsel team.

“We have legitimate questions about how all these people ended up on the Mueller team that had a history of donating financially to Democrats and there didn’t seem to be sufficient balance,” said Gaetz.

The congressman said he wants to ask Mueller about why former FBI special agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page were brought onto the special counsel team in spite of both having worked on the Clinton email probe. “That’s not something you would normally see,” Gaetz said.

Trump on Mueller’s July Testimony: “It Never Ends”

President Trump says “it never ends” after it was announced last night that Robert Mueller will testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17.

Speaking to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo this morning, the president slammed the bias within the special counsel team, many of whom had financially supported Democratic candidates–including Hillary Clinton.

“We had no obstruction we had no collusion we had a report that was–considering you had 18 people that hated Donald Trump and you had Mueller who obviously was not a Trump fan, not a Trump person–how these people were picked [to join the special counsel’s team] is by itself incredible and yet the report is no collusion, no obstruction which was ruled on by our great attorney general…”

Speaking about the origins of the FBI’s investigation into his campaign, President Trump said, “They got caught and they’re running around going wild trying to do everything they can, but they spied on my campaign, it’s as simple as that…It’s so illegal, it’s probably the biggest political scandal in history and they got caught doing it.”

House Judiciary panel chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced in a joint statement last night that Mueller had agreed to testify before Congress following a subpoena.

“Pursuant to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence tonight, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to testify before both Committees on July 17 in open session,” reads the statement.

“Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack.”

SICK: Unhinged Employee SPIT on Eric Trump at Chicago Restaurant

In yet another display of love and kindness exhibited by the “tolerant left,” Eric Trump claims a restaurant employee in Chicago was taken into Secret Service custody after spitting on him yesterday.

Speaking with Breitbart News last night, Trump said, “It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems. For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.”

Breitbart Reports:

According to sources familiar with the matter, Eric Trump had, with a group of people, come into Aviary, an upscale lounge in Chicago, and the young woman–an employee of the establishment–came right up to him and spit in his face. Per an eyewitness, she murmured inaudibly something that sounded like it was anti-Trump. Then Secret Service agents who were there protecting Eric Trump jumped into action and took the woman into custody. She was put in handcuffs and placed in a police paddy wagon, a source with knowledge said. Eric Trump decided not to press charges against the woman in the end, and she was released from police custody.

Breaking: Mueller to Testify Before House Committees in July

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17 following a subpoena.

House Judiciary panel chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced in a joint statement, “Pursuant to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence tonight, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to testify before both Committees on July 17 in open session.”

The statement continues, “Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack.”

Jussie Smollett Googled Himself Over 50x in Days After Alleged Staged Attack

Actor Jussie Smollett Googled his name more than 50 times in the days after the alleged staged hate crime attack against him.

CBS 2 reporter Charlie De Mar tweeted an image of the actor’s search history which was released by Chicago police yesterday:

Chicago police also released nearly 70 hours of video footage from its investigation into the Smollett case.

The videos released include footage from when officers arrived at Smollett’s home and are greeted by the actor with a makeshift noose around his neck.

Officers asked the actor if he wanted to take the noose off, to which he replied “Yeah. I do. I just wanted you all to see it.”

According to ABC 7, Smollett’s manager tells officers on the video, “He doesn’t want this to be a big deal. The thing that makes me emotional is they put this makeshift loop, what do you call that thing, a noose around his (expletive) neck. I’m sorry, you know. And that is what bothers me, the cut thing doesn’t bother me at all. If that makes any sense.”

When Smollett learned that the police body cameras were recording the entire discussion, they ask for the officers to turn off their cameras.

“You’re filming this right?” Smollett’s manager asks.

“Yes, this is all data,” an officer replies. “It’s his house.”

“They are filming,” Smollett’s manager tells the actor. “Can we turn it off?”

“Yeah,” the officer replies. “You are giving us permission to shut it off?”

Police also released footage of the two brothers who were accused of “attacking” Smollett–Abel and Ola Osundairo–being taken into custody at Chicago’s O’Hare airport.

Smollett was arrested in February after police officially classified him as a suspect for allegedly filing a false police report. He had claimed he was the victim of a homophobic and racist attack that occurred in January in Chicago where two men poured a chemical substance on him, put a rope around his neck and said “This is MAGA country!”

On March 8, Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts and faced up to 48 years in prison. However, on March 26, all charges against the actor were dropped.

Just last week, a Cook County judge ordered that a special prosecutor be appointedto investigate prosecutors’ decisions to drop charges against Smollett.

Veritas: Leaked Google Doc Labels Prominent Conservatives, Libertarians “Nazis”

Investigative journalism organization, Project Veritas has released what they claim to be a leaked document from Google showing employees calling conservative and libertarian commentators “nazis.”

Veritas writes:

The email apparently was sent as part of the Google “transparency-and-ethics” group internal communications and suggests that content from PragerU, Jordan Peterson, and Ben Shapiro should be disabled from the “suggestion feature.”

The email states:

“Today it is often 1 or 2 steps to Nazis if we understand that PragerU, Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro et al are nazis using the dog whistles you mention in step 1. I can receive these recommendations regardless of the content of what I’m looking at, and I have recorded thousands of internet users sharing the same experience.”

“I don’t think correctly identifying far-right content is beyond our capabilities. But if it is, why not go with Meredith’s suggestion of disabling the suggestions feature? That could be significant in terms of user trust.”

The release of the leaked email comes on the heels of an undercover video from Project Veritas showing Google employee Jen Gennai discussing how the company could intervene in the 2020 elections to “prevent” the “next Trump situation.”

“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again,” she says in the footage.

“We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?” she says in the footage.

Gennai also warned against Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) plan to break up the tech company because “all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

Gennai has responded to the video, writing in a post for Medium, “I was having a casual chat with someone at a restaurant and used some imprecise language. Project Veritas got me. Well done.”

U.S. Holocaust Museum Rejects AOC’s “Concentration Camp” Comments

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has responded to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s shameful comments comparing the situation at the southern border to “concentration camps.”

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” said the museum in a statement. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now. The link to the Museum’s statement is here.”

The Holocaust museum also rejected a statement by one of its historians, Becky Erbelding, who tweeted in January of 2018, “The parallels to the 1930s-1940s refugee crisis are so obvious. Why can’t we learn?” she tweeted in response to an article about refugees in the Trump era:

“The Museum further reiterates that a statement ascribed to a Museum staff historian regarding recent attempts to analogize the situation on the United States southern border to concentration camps in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s does not reflect the position of the Museum.”

“The Museum deeply regrets any offense to Holocaust survivors and others that may have been engendered by any statement ascribed to a Museum historian in a personal capacity.”

Last week, Ocasio-Cortez claimed in a social media video, “The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are and um, if that doesn’t bother you I don’t…I like…we can have OK whatever…I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity that ‘never again’ means something…”

Since her comments, many on the left have rushed to her defense, including Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who said in a recent interview, “When you look at what is taking place, people are being put in camps.”

She continued, “And when you think about the definition, if we separate it from death camps, I would say these are camps and people are being concentrated in them. And so that’s the general definition.”

“I think a lot of people are conflating what a death camp looks like or a specific removal of people. These people are coming to the border,” she said. “We are removing them from the border. We are placing them in camps. Some of them are being removed from communities and being put in what we’re calling detention centers — but are essentially camps.”

One of the world’s leading Holocaust museums recently fired back at the congresswoman on Twitter:

Yad Vashem: The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem tweeted the Congresswoman this morning, “@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called for the representative to apologize “not only to the nation but to the world.”

“I think Congresswoman AOC needs to apologize,” McCarthy said, during a press conference yesterday. “Not only to the nation but to the world. She does not understand history.”

“She does not understand what is going on at the border at the same time. But there is no comparison…and to actually say that is embarrassing,” he continued.

“To take somewhere in history where millions of Jews died…and equate that to somewhere that’s happening on the border…she owes this nation an apology.”

However, on Wednesday, the Congresswoman remained defiant and refused to apologize.

Mexico Deploys 15,000 Troops in Migration Crackdown

Mexico has deployed 15,000 soldiers and National Guardsmen to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Defense Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval said at a press conference alongside President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, “We have a total deployment, between the National Guard and army units, of 14,000, almost 15,000 men in the north of the country.”

Sandoval replied “yes” when asked whether the troops were detaining migrants to prevent them from crossing the U.S. border.

“Given that (undocumented) migration is not a crime but rather an administrative violation, we simply detain them and turn them over to the authorities,” he said.

Mexico appears to have taken action after President Trump threatened the country with increasing tariffs if the border nation did not intercede to stop the influx of immigrants into the U.S.

In a statement, President Trump said if Mexico does not take action to “dramatically reduce or eliminate” the number of illegal aliens entering the U.S., the tariffs would increase to 15 percent on August 1, 2019. From there, they will go up to 20 percent by September 1 and 25 percent by October 1.

“Gang members, smugglers, human traffickers, and illegal drugs and narcotics of all kinds are pouring across the Southern Border and directly into our communities.  Thousands of innocent lives are taken every year as a result of this lawless chaos.  It must end NOW!” said the President.

UPDATE: YouTube DELETES Video Exposing Google Plan to Interfere in 2020 Election

YouTube has deleted the Project Veritas video revealing a senior Google executive discussing what appears to be the tech giant’s plan to influence the 2020 elections.

The video shows Jen Gennai, Google’s head of “Responsible Innovation” caught on camera saying the company has been working diligently to “prevent” a repeat of the 2016 election in 2020.

Gennai has responded to the video, writing in a post for Medium, “I was having a casual chat with someone at a restaurant and used some imprecise language. Project Veritas got me. Well done.”

In the Project Veritas video, Gennai was caught on camera saying, “We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.”

“We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?” she says in the footage.

Gennai also warned against Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) plan to break up the tech company because “all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”
