Retraction on Adam Schiff sister Marrying George Soros Son it turns out to be fake news!



George Soros son did marry a lady named Schiff, but of absolutely no relation to Adam Schiff.

Robert Daniel Soros, did marry a woman named Melissa Robin Schiff in 1992. However, a New York Times wedding announcement for the couple  indicates that her and Adam Schiff don’t have the same parents. Of course, that means she’s not Schiff’s sister. Melissa’s parents were identified as Haskel and Marlene Schiff in the announcement. Meanwhile, Adam’s parent’s are named Edward and Sherrill Ann (Glovsky) Schiff. And Adam does not have a sister, he has an older brother named Dan.

The report that Democrat Adam Schiff’s sister was married to George Soros’ son was a shocker but then it all made sense. The far left and the Deep State are all intertwined in an incestuous relationship. The marriage of Schiff’s sister to Soros’ son is a perfect example:
As it turns out, George Soros was instrumental in helping fund Schiff’s political career. Schiff was bankrolled by Soros organization MoveOn.org:
Breitbart News reports:
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was previously financially aided by the George Soros-financed MoveOn.org to win his Congressional seat.   Schiff was also awarded the Toll Fellowship, which is sponsored by the Council of State Governments, a nonprofit that monitors federal government activities and is heavily financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The Open Society and Soros-funded groups have additionally supported a number of Schiff’s legislative efforts.
Schiff has been helping to lead the Democrats’ unsubstantiated charges of alleged collusion between President Donald Trump and Moscow.
Last month, Schiff delivered the opening statements at a Congressional hearing where he laid out the case for alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.  This reporter previously documented serious problems with Schiff’s charges, which include wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source.
Wonder if he’s beholden to Soros now? We believe he is! Remember that Schiff has been lying and leaking since day one of Trump presidency. He believes the end justifies the means even if it’s corrupt.
THE APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE: Soros’ son was married to Adam Schiff’s sister!



A Defense of Evangelicals Who Support Trump

by DENNIS PRAGER February 6, 2018 10:15 AM @DENNISPRAGER

And some questions for their critics.

It is usually easier for an outsider to defend a person or a group that is attacked than for the person or group to defend itself. In that vein, this Jew would like to defend Evangelicals and other Christians who support President Donald Trump. They are regularly attacked as religious hypocrites who give Christianity in general, and Evangelical Christianity in particular, a bad name.
The people writing such things are often Christians, including Evangelicals. Ross Douthat, a New York Times columnist, wrote: “Whether the subject is the debauched pagan in the White House, the mall-haunted candidacy of Roy Moore or the larger question of how to engage with secular culture, there is talk of an intergenerational crisis within evangelical churches, a widening disillusionment with a Trump-endorsing old guard, a feeling that a crackup must loom ahead.”
Jared Wilson wrote on the Gospel Coalition’s website: “From the same believers who raised us to believe that standing for the truth was more important than anything, that being persecuted for your integrity was better than compromise, that morality was not relative, that ethics are not situational. And now these same teachers are wanting us to believe that a little ‘R’ by a man’s name covers a multitude of sins.”

Robert P. Jones wrote in USA Today:
“White Evangelicals . . . are, in many ways, a community grieving its losses. . . . Thinking about the white evangelical/Trump alliance as an end-of-life bargain is illuminating. It helps explain, for example, how white evangelical leaders could ignore so many problematic aspects of Trump’s character.”

Shortly before the election, Marvin Olasky and the editors wrote in World magazine: “Glorifying God by honoring His standards is worth more than political gain.” Jay Caruso, a Dallas Morning News editorial board member, wrote a column titled “Evangelical Leaders Expose Their Hypocrisy by Playing Palace Guard to Trump.”

BREAKING: Trump’s Lawyers Make Recommendation On Whether He Should Meet Mueller

“The idea of putting Trump in a room with five or six hardened, very clever lawyers, all of whom are trying to trick him and trap him, would be a very, very bad idea.”

Lawyers representing President Donald Trump have reportedly advised the president against meeting with special counsel Robert Mueller for an interview under oath, a move many have cautioned is a perjury trap.
The report from The New York Times, published late on Monday, says that the president’s lawyers are concerned about his shoot-from-the-hip communication style in which he occasionally contradicts himself. Citing “four people briefed on the matter,” the Times claims that there is a friction brewing between the president and his lawyers as he is eager to speak with Mueller since he believes that he did nothing wrong. The Times notes:

But John Dowd, the longtime Washington defense lawyer hired last summer to represent Mr. Trump in the investigation, wants to rebuff an interview request, as do Mr. Dowd’s deputy, Jay Sekulow, and many West Wing advisers, according to the four people. The lawyers and aides believe the special counsel might be unwilling to subpoena the president and set off a showdown with the White House that Mr. Mueller could lose in court.

The decision on whether Trump will, in fact, sit down with Mueller for an interview is expected to be made sometime in the coming weeks.
Many others have cautioned Trump against an interview with Mueller, including Marc E. Kasowitz, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer who initially dealt with Mueller’s Russia investigation last May; former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie; and former House speaker Newt Gingrich.
“I don’t think the president of the United States, unless there are credible allegations — which I don’t believe there are — should be sitting across from a special counsel,” Christie said recently on ABC News.
“The idea of putting Trump in a room with five or six hardened, very clever lawyers, all of whom are trying to trick him and trap him, would be a very, very bad idea,” Gingrich told “Fox & Friends,” one of Trump’s favorite news programs, last month.


WATCH: RNC TROLLS Democrats In New Ad:
‘What Do You Stand For?’

We all knew that if the Republican National Committee had any brains at all, they’d cut an ad of Democrats sitting and grimacing during last week’s State of the Union address from President Donald Trump, a man Democrats loathe to their core.
Well, it’s finally here, and it’s spectacular.
On Monday, the RNC released a wonderfully troll-y ad called “Democrats: What do you stand for?” The ad shows mean-faced Democrats stubbornly sitting as President Trump speaks about American freedom, standing for the national anthem, the motto “In God We Trust,” and record low minority unemployment, among other things.
This is not a good look.
The visual of Democrats super-glued to their seats at such times underscores the reality that the party is “motivated more by hatred of Donald Trump than the best interests of the American people,” as noted by Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro.
Key Democratic leaders — including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland, and failed presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont — feature prominently in the ad, which culminates with an image of Pelosi checking on other Democrats who are obediently sitting looking quite stern.


American Family Association on FISA Memo

A Personal Note from Tim Wildmon - AFA President

Your efforts led to the release of the FISA memo
Monday, February 5, 2018
Recently, we sent you an AFA Action Alert, asking you to contact President Donald Trump, your representative, and senators and urge them to take the necessary steps to declassify and publicly release a four-page FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) memo to the American public.  High ranking government officials reported that a classified, four-page memo, dubbed the “FISA memo,” had been made available to every member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
The memo highlights extensive and abusive and likely illegal surveillance of private American citizens by federal government agencies. The classified memo contains details of a coordinated effort between government agencies, including the DOJ and FBI, and the Hillary Clinton political campaign against President Donald Trump, both prior to and following the presidential election.   Your actions helped get the controversial four-page FISA memo written by the majority staff of the House Intelligence Committee has been released by President Trump.
 Below is a list of some of the excerpts:
  • Anti-Trump dossier was used to obtain a warrant from the FISA court to conduct surveillance on Carter Page, an advisor to the Trump presidential campaign
  • FISA application for Carter Page cited a Yahoo News article about Trump’s 2016 visit to Russia as evidence. The story’s information came from Christopher Steele and his dossier.
  • British spy Christopher Steele, a longtime FBI source, was paid more than $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign to obtain derogatory information about Donald Trump.
  • Senior DOJ and FBI officials were aware of the DNC funding behind the dossier but never disclosed that information to the FISA court
  • FBI and Fusion GPS used ‘circular reporting’ in the case to give the dossier credibility
  • FBI and DOJ would not have secured surveillance warrant without the dossier research
  • Christopher Steele admitted to a former DOJ official that he had strong feelings against then-candidate Donald Trump
  • Bruce Ohr, associate deputy attorney general, provided the FBI with Trump opposition research that came from Ohr’s wife, who was employed by Fusion GPS. The research was funded by the DNC and the Clinton campaign
You can read then entire FISA memo here.
Christians hold dear America’s fundamental liberties, such as the freedom of religious expression. This freedom allows us to advance the gospel without fear of government intrusion. However, this liberty is only as secure when our government officials maintain fidelity to the rule of law enshrined in the United States Constitution.  Thank you for taking time to contact your elected officials. Americans deserve to know to what extent U.S. agencies and elected officials have abused their power and illegally and unjustly conducted surveillance on its own citizens.   If our mission resonates with you, please consider supporting our work financially with a tax-deductible donation. The easiest way to do that is through online giving. It is easy to use, and most of all, it is secure.
Thank you,

Republican agenda clouded by division

Republicans are divided over transportation, immigration and spending coming out of a retreat in West Virginia, clouding the prospect of legislative progress in 2018.

GOP leaders at the retreat focused on the accomplishments of last year more than the divisive issues in front of them as they hope to rally the rank-and-file members ahead of primary season and the November general election.

Five FBI Figures May Pay the Price for Signing FISA Warrants

Liberty Headlines

A rule of the FISA court bars the deliberate presentation of flawed evidence for a surveillance warrant…

FBI Deputy Director REMOVED from His Job

Andrew McCabe/IMAGE: YouTube

(Mark Tapscott, Lifezette) Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe may have increased the legal jeopardy he’s facing and that four other top federal law enforcement officials are facing as well — by telling Congress in December 2017 that no surveillance warrants could be sought without using the undocumented Steele dossier.
The reason is simple: By the procedural rules governing surveillance warrant requests to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court, federal officials are barred from knowingly using undocumented evidence.
But thanks to the court’s “Woods Procedures,” that’s exactly what was done by McCabe. That’s also what was done by his former boss, then-FBI Director James Comey, former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, former acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente, and current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
They did so by signing FISA surveillance warrant requests based on the Steele dossier, the opposition research compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele of allegations about President Donald Trump’s links to Russian government and business figures who supposedly helped him win the White House in 2016.
The Democratic National Committee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign committee indirectly paid for the Steele dossier via a Washington, D.C. law firm. Comey told Congress in 2016 the dossier was “salacious and unverified.”   The FISA court was told of neither the dossier’s undocumented basis nor who paid for its production, a potentially serious violation of the Woods Procedures. Former CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson explains:

THE HILL – Possible 2 year Budget

Senate leaders near two-year budget deal to prevent shutdown

Senate leaders are close to a two-year budget deal that would avert a government shutdown, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) announced Tuesday.

The deal would set spending levels for fiscal years 2018 and 2019 and avoid the prospect of a government shutdown when a stopgap spending measure expires on Thursday.

IG poised to reignite war over FBI’s Clinton case

Few people have heard of Michael Horowitz, but that’s about to change.

Horowitz, the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general, is an increasingly critical player in the controversy surrounding the FBI, President Trump and the Russia investigation.

With little fanfare, he has been conducting a sprawling probe of the FBI’s handling of the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. His full report, which could set off shockwaves, is expected by the early spring.

The stakes are enormously high.

Poll: DACA Amnesty Bombs In GOP Primaries

Poll: DACA Amnesty Bombs In GOP Primaries


by NEIL MUNRO6 Feb 20181,200

A DACA amnesty is strongly opposed by the Republicans who vote in GOP primaries, says a new poll by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC.

The group is touring Capitol Hill offices today to showcase the poll, which they say will deter GOP legislators from backing a DACA or ‘dreamer’ amnesty prior to their Spring primaries. “We’re hoping this poll will be a bucket of cold water to wake them out of their DC spell,” said William Gheen, founder of ALIPAC.
The group plans to visit the at least 200 offices of GOP politicians, including North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton.
“If Collins and Ryan and Mitch McConnell and the other amnesty supporting RINOS want to go against the will of their primary voters, like [Majority Leader Rep. Eric] Cantor did, that’s up to them,” Gheen said. Cantor lost his primary election in June 2014, largely because of primary opposition to an amnesty push in Congress.
The poll results mean that pro-amnesty GOP legislators “are highly vulnerable and can be defeated by [primary] candidates with less experience and less money,” he said. GOP legislators should poll their own voters, he said, adding “they’ll back off the [amnesty] deal if they want to keep their jobs.”
The poll of 540 likely voters showed, according to ALIPAC, that:
Sixty-seven percent of respondents said Congress should focus on enforcing the laws we already have on the books, versus only 33% who said they should focus on providing Amnesty. Similarly, 65.4% of respondents said President Trump should focus the resources of the federal government to uphold national immigration laws already in place …
Seventy-one percent of likely Republican primary voters in states President Trump carried in 2016 wants Congress to enforce [the laws], including 79.9% of Southerners, 78.8% of men, and 62.4% of voters in the Midwest. Voters in those states provided Trump with 83.3% of his Electoral College votes in 2016 and sent 72.2% of GOP members in the House of Representatives to Washington …
These numbers are even more pronounced when you look specifically at respondents in districts located in states Trump carried that are also currently represented by a Republican member of Congress. Seventy-three percent of all respondents in these districts, including 80.5% of men, 81% of Southerners, and 64.6% of likely Republican voters in the Midwest, want their Republican member of Congress to enforce our current laws instead of providing Amnesty.
“We’re going to draw some attention that over two-thirds of voters back home oppose this DACA deal,” Gheen said.

Gowdy And Schiff Told Us Opposite Things About The House Intel Memo. Here’s Who Was Right And Why It Matters

Lots of somebodies are lying about what’s inside
and behind the House Intelligence Committee
memo charging abuse of secret surveillance

By  6, 2018
Anyone paying attention to competing political narratives during the two-week lead-up to the release of the House Intelligence Committee memo would have noticed the fundamental disconnect between the opinions of the two congressmen most familiar with the underlying intelligence that informed the memo’s contents.   While Reps. Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff both read the same packet of classified Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Justice (DOJ) provided, they came away from the reading room with completely different impressions of the story those documents told.
 In interviews before its release, Gowdy told us the memo would show, among other things, that the FBI included uncorroborated information, obtained at the behest of a rival political campaign and presented to the FISA court (FISC) as verified intelligence, to obtain a warrant on an American citizen under false pretenses. Gowdy assured us that no classified information would be revealed, and no sources and methods would be burned, by releasing the memo.
“If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted,” Gowdy said, “if you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then you will want the memo to come out.”
Schiff, on the other hand, warned us the memo would contain highly classified, cherry-picked, and misleading information, which would reveal intelligence sources and methods that should never see the light of day. He told us that releasing the memo would harm our national security capabilities with respect to FISA procedures, and needlessly undermine our faith in the FBI and DOJ, for no other purpose than partisan political gain.
He said as much in a Washington Post op-ed two days before the memo was released: “Intelligence agencies can no longer be confident that material they provide the committee will not be repurposed and manipulated for reasons having nothing to do with national security. As a result, they will be far more reluctant to share their secrets with us in the future. Moreover, sources of information that the agencies rely upon may dry up, since they can no longer count on secrecy when the political winds are blowing. This is a grave cost for short-term political gain.”
