BREAKING: Roger Stone Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

On Thursday, longtime Trump ally Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in jail for allegedly lying to Congress as well as witness tampering in the now debunked Russian collusion investigation.

The prison sentence comes after a long week of criticism from President Trump for the original outrageous prison recommendation.






Check out what The Hill reported:

Thursday’s sentencing hearing follows a tumultuous stretch that saw President Trump attack the original prosecutors, the judge and the jury in the case on behalf of his onetime adviser. And it follows the withdrawal of the original prosecution team from the case after the Justice Department amended their recommendation that Stone serve seven to nine years in prison.

During the hearing, Judge Amy Berman Jackson sharply questioned the new attorney for the prosecution, John Crabb Jr. of the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office, over the administration’s sentencing reversal.

Crabb demurred when Jackson asked whether he actually wrote the updated sentencing memo that the government submitted under his name last week or if his superiors at the Justice Department had directed him to ask for a sentence “far less” than the original recommendation. He said that he was not authorized to discuss internal department deliberations in open court.

Still, Crabb was conciliatory in his courtroom remarks, praising the original prosecution team and insisting that the Justice Department is committed to doing its job without “fear or favor.” Despite amending the original sentencing recommendation, he argued that Stone still deserves a “substantial” prison sentence.

The 40 month sentence comes after President Donald Trump spent the last week hammering the Department of Justice prosecutors for originally recommending a nine year prison sentence for Stone.

***NEWLY RELEASED Trump 2020 Hat – Yours Free***

Last Tuesday, President Trump unleashed on the Justice Department.

“Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” President Trump said.

“This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” he tweeted.

Later, President Trump said “disgraceful” while responding to a tweet from Saagar Enjeti which read, “Any reasonable person knows that if this is the actual sentence for Roger Stone that it is an unhinged miscarriage of justice.”

Check out what the Daily Caller reported:

Prosecutors recommended in a court filing Monday that Stone serve between 87 months and 108 months on charges that he made false statements and committed witness tampering in relation to the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation.

A Washington, D.C., jury convicted the 67-year-old Stone on Nov. 15, 2019. He will be sentenced on Feb. 20.

Stone was accused of lying to the House panel when he denied speaking with associates or anyone on the Trump campaign about WikiLeaks. House Democrats and the special counsel’s office initially investigated whether Stone worked with WikiLeaks or Russia to obtain and release Democrats’ emails during the 2016 campaign.

Voter Data From Trump’s Arizona Rally Should Scare The Hell Out Of Democrats

On Wednesday night, President Trump held a rally in Phoenix, Arizona and the voter data released by the Trump campaign should scare the living daylights out of Democrats.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale took to Twitter last night to share the voter data with his followers. In short, Trump is not only bringing new voters into his base from the Democrat party, but he’s bringing in people who didn’t even vote in 2016!






Here are the turnout numbers, as reported by Parscale:

*67,516 tickets were sold

*29,990 voters were identified (87% of whom were from Arizona)

*26% didn’t vote in 2016

*18% were Democrats

Trump’s wide appeal continues to baffle Democrats, and it appears they are in for a beating in November.

Here are some of the best clips from Trump’s Arizona rally:

Chris Matthews Ratchets Up Attacks On Bernie, Accuses Him Of Buying Votes

The establishment attacks on Bernie Sanders continue to intensify as the Vermont senator builds momentum heading into a crucial stretch of the primaries. 

Now that the socialist monster that they helped to create has escaped the laboratory and is on a rampage, those who would face its wrath if Bernie somehow gets elected are desperate to stop him. 






One of them is MSNBC’s excitable Chris Matthews who has been blasting Sanders and his cult-like followers for weeks and like many of his fellow pundits, has put their faith in billionaire Michael Bloomberg. 

The host of “Hardball” is now clapping back at critics who accuse Bloomberg of buying the nomination by claiming that the 78-year-old revolutionary is also buying votes through his promises of free stuff to young people including free college tuition. 

He made the claim during a segment with Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Sanders prior to the big Dem debate who was decrying the former New York City mayor’s massive ad buys. 

Per Matthews:

Ok, if I’m in college right now and I have student loans that got me through college, if somebody came along and said I’m gonna pay off all your student loans and what else?

If your going to a public university, I’m paying all your tuition.  

is that buying votes? Sounds like it. 

Touche! 

The longtime Democrat has been taking a flamethrower to Bernie and his suggestion that much of Bernie’s success can be attributed to bribing voters will likely end up in one of those Bloomberg ads at some point, or even more likely, one for the Trump campaign. 

Matthews also recently unloaded on the barely-closeted communist by calling out his fellow contestants for the nomination for not calling Bernie on his B.S. and predicting that if Sanders wins the nomination, that Dems will lose 49 states. 

**Piss Off Democrats With Your FREE Betsy Ross Flag***

Via The Washington Examiner, “‘Bernie, you’re full of it’: Chris Matthews rips Sanders as possible Democratic nominee”:

MSNBC host Chris Matthews continued his criticism of socialism on Tuesday, attacking independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Matthews initially chided the other Democratic candidates for not taking aim at Sanders’s belief system, saying, “Nobody just says the obvious: ‘Bernie, you’re full of it. None of this is going to get passed. You’re going to be a miserable president, frustrated from the first day because you’re not going to get Medicare for All. You’re not going to get free college tuition for public universities. You’re not going to get payoffs of all student loans. None of this is going to happen, and you’re just going to sit there and stew in it,'” Matthews said. “So, why don’t they bring that up? I do not understand why they don’t bring that up.”

He later added that Democratic candidates are “pandering” to Sanders supporters to garner necessary support in the general election.

“They’re just pandering to the Bernie people, and you know what pandering gets you? Nothing,” Matthews said. “They’ve got to get out there and say, ‘I disagree with socialism. I believe in the markets. I think he’s wrong. I think he’ll never get it done, and this country will never go that direction, and, by the way, we’ll lose 49 states.'”

Suffice it to say that unlike Barack Obama, Comrade Bernie isn’t exactly sending a thrill up Matthews’ leg.

Dem Senator Forced To Admit That He Secretly Met With Top Iranian Official

Democrat Chris Murphy has been forced to admit that he secretly met with top Iranian officials during the Munich Security Conference last week. 

The Connecticut senator fessed up after a bombshell report by The Federalist revealed that he and several other Dems went behind President Trump’s back to improperly negotiate with the leadership of the world’s top purveyor of terrorism.






Following the report, Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo had harsh comments for Murphy and the rogue Democrats.

“I have seen that piece about some senators meeting with Foreign Minister Zarif. This guy is designated by the United States of America. He’s the foreign minister for a country that shot down a commercial airliner and has yet to turn over the black boxes. This is the foreign minister of a country that killed an American on December 27. And it’s the foreign minister of a country who is the largest world of terror and the world’s largest of anti-Semitism,” Pompeo said. “If they met, I don’t know what they said. I hope they were reinforcing America’s foreign policy and not their own.” 

Initially, Murphy ignored the report but the unexpected scrutiny led him to admit the meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif which he defended despite increasing suspicion that the group was undermining Trump and official U.S. policy. 

Via The Washington Free Beacon, “Chris Murphy Admits He Secretly Met With Iranian Foreign Minister”:

Senator Chris Murphy (D., Conn.) admitted Tuesday that he secretly met with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif at an international security conference.

Murphy met with Zarif after criticizing the Trump administration’s Middle East policy in a speech to the Munich Security Conference last week. Murphy remained silent when reports of the meeting emerged on Monday, but acknowledged he met with top Iranian regime officials in a Medium post published Tuesday.

“For years, I have met on occasion with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, during both the Obama and Trump Administrations,” he wrote. “I have no delusions about Iran—they are our adversary, responsible for the killing of thousands of Americans and unacceptable levels of support for terrorist organizations throughout the Middle East. But I think it’s dangerous to not talk to your enemies.”

Sen. Murphy who is a virulent critic of President Trump also sent out a series of tweets defending the meeting with a man who was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department last year and claimed that “Congress is a co-equal branch to the executive. We set foreign policy too.”

He also opined that Trump should be thankful for his treachery because his hardline stance to Iran “is just making Iran more powerful and menacing, and making America weaker and less secure.”

You have to give it Murphy, he has chutzpah. 

However, in yet another example of how hypocrisy is the coin of the realm with Dems, it was Murphy who demanded an investigation into General Michael Flynn who he accused of violating the Logan Act for speaking with Russia’s ambassador during the transition. 

***NEWLY RELEASED Trump 2020 Hat – Yours Free***

This is something that would seemingly also apply to the him and his fellow traitors colluding with the Ayatollahs but don’t ever expect to hear that perspective on CNN. 

It’s bad enough when Democrats parrot talking points directly out of Tehran’s ministry of propaganda as they did after Trump took out terrorist mastermind General Qassem Soleimani last month but quite another when they are stabbing the leader of the free world in the back while overseas. 

With the party now having dispensed with any pretenses of being even remotely acting in the best interests of America, it is pretty clear whose side they are on.

Trey Gowdy Reveals John Durham Looking At ‘Three Important Things’ In Russia Probe

The walls are closing on on the Deep State conspirators who tried to frame President Trump for being in cahoots with the Kremlin. 

With prosecutor John Durham zeroing in on the culprits, former Republican congressman Trey Gowdy highlighted three key areas that AG Barr’s bulldog is looking into. 






During his appearance on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures, the leader of the congressional investigation into Benghazi discussed these focal points with host Maria Bartiromo.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Trey Gowdy: John Durham looking at ‘three important things'”:

“He’s looking at three things — the factual predicate for this Russia investigation. And I’m not talking about the summer of 2016. I’m talking about stuff that happened in late 2015 and early 2016,” Gowdy told Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo.

“Remember, the DOJ and the FBI told Paul Ryan and Devin Nunes and myself repeatedly and exclusively that nothing happened before June of 2016. No payments were made, no contacts with the Trump campaign,” he added, referring back to his time as a lead GOP investigator in Congress. “I’m sure John Durham is looking to see whether or not that’s true.”

Two other areas of interest Gowdy pointed out were alleged government surveillance abuses in targeting a member of the Trump 2016 campaign and the January 2017 intelligence assessment on Russian election interference.

“He’s also looking at the FISA process and misrepresentations made to the FISA court,” the former federal prosecutor said. “I think he’s also looking at that ICA, that intelligence community assessment, that John Brennan got done towards the end of the Barack Obama tenure, to make sure whether or not that was thoroughly investigated and whether or not all the right information made its way into that ICA.”

Judging by the ferocious attacks on Attorney General Barr by Democrats, Clinton-Obama loyalist prosecutors and the media smear brigades, Durham has the perps terrified that he’s going to smoke them out. 

***BRAND NEW Space Force Commemorative Bundle***

In another interesting development, the New York Times recently reported that Durham is also looking into whether Obama regime intelligence figures like MSNBC employee and ex-CIA director John Brennan hid evidence and manipulated information on Russia to protect their boss and damage Trump. 

Other than speculation, Durham’s probe remains largely shrouded in secrecy and devoid of the leaks that have promoted the intelligence community’s war on Trump. 

Whatever he produces is sure to be explosive.

Bernie Sanders Loses It After Bloomberg Shreds Him for Owning 3 Houses

During the Democratic debate on Wednesday night hosted by NBC, billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg hammered socialist candidate Bernie Sanders for claiming to be a socialist while owning three houses.

“What a wonderful country we have,” Bloomberg said. “The best known socialist happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What’d I miss here?”






“You’ll miss that I work in Washington,” Sanders replied.

“That’s the first problem,” Bloomberg shot back.

WATCH the clip below:

Sanders was clearly triggered as he continued by trying to explain why it is acceptable for he, a socialist, to be a millionaire with three houses.

“Live in Burlington [Vermont], house two,” Sanders said. “And like thousands of other Vermonters, I do have a summer camp. Forgive me for that. Where is your home? Which tax haven …”

“New York City, thank you very much,” Bloomberg shot back. “And I pay all my taxes. And I’m happy to do it because I get something for it.”

As the exchange continued, MSNBC host Chuck Todd asked Bloomberg, “Mayor Bloomberg, should you exist?”

“I can’t speak for all billionaires, all I know is I’ve been very lucky, made a lot of money and I’m giving it all away to make this country better and a good chunk of it goes to the Democratic Party as well,” Bloomberg said.

“Have you earned too much?” Todd questioned. “Has it been an obscene amount of money? Should you have earned that amount of money?”

“Yes, I worked very hard for it,” Bloomberg replied. “And I’m giving it away.”

Sanders tried saying that it wasn’t Bloomberg who made that money but those who worked for him.

***NEWLY RELEASED Trump 2020 Hat – Yours Free***

“I can’t think of a way that would make it easier for Donald Trump to get re-elected than by listening to this conversation,” Bloomberg said. “This is ridiculous. We’re not going to throw out capitalism, we tried that, other countries tried that, it was called communism and it just didn’t work.”

WATCH:

Check out what The Daily Wire had to say on Bloomberg’s background and policies:

On November 24, 2019, Michael Rubens Bloomberg announced his formal entrance into the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential primary. To date, he is the latest candidate to enter the primary field.
Michael Bloomberg served three full terms as mayor of New York City, from 2002 through the end of 2013. He was New York City’s mayoral successor of the failed 2008 Republican presidential candidate and current private attorney for President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani. Bloomberg is also the co-founder, CEO, and majority owner of financial services conglomerate Bloomberg L.P., which is perhaps best known for its flagship Bloomberg Terminal hardware. As of November 2019, Bloomberg’s net worth was estimated at $58 billion dollars, which makes him one of the wealthiest individuals in the world. He has been a prolific donator to various charitable and political causes.

Born in Boston in 1942, Bloomberg has degrees from Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Business School. A registered Democrat earlier in his career, Bloomberg actually ran for and successfully sought the New York City mayoralty office as a registered Republican before re-registering as an independent in the midst of his second mayoral term. He re-registered as a Democrat in 2018. Since joining the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primary field, Bloomberg News — an international news outlet operating as a legal subsidiary of Bloomberg L.P. — has announced that it will not journalistically investigate Bloomberg or his fellow 2020 Democratic Party primary campaign rivals.

Fighting Dirty: Sanders Aide Claims Bloomberg Has ‘History’ Of Heart Attacks

Former New York City mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s campaign is speaking out after Bernie Sanders’ press secretary Briahna Joy Gray falsely claimed that he had a history of heart attacks in the past.

While responding to why Sanders is refusing to release his medical records, Gray decided to sidestep the question by hammering Bloomberg instead by claiming that he “has suffered heart attacks in the past.”






“It’s completely false,” Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey fired back.

Sheekey, while denying that Bloomberg had suffered heart attacks in the past, did note that the former New York City mayor had stents put in as a precautionary measure for stress.

“The Bloomberg 2020 campaign released more information about his outstanding health soon after he entered the race,” Sheekey added. “Here’s what we know about Sen. Sanders: In October 2019, he had a medical incident in Las Vegas. He didn’t tell the public for days and the full details have never been released.”

Check out what Fox News reported:

In December 2019, Bloomberg’s doctor said in a letter that since having the stents placed, Bloomberg has had annual cardiac stress testing, and that he is in “outstanding health.” Bloomberg did have atrial fibrillation in 2018, and since then he has taken a blood thinner. The doctor said there are “no medical concerns” that would keep Bloomberg from serving as president.

“Facts matter,” Sheekey said. “This isn’t the way to defeat Donald Trump in November.

Gray later tweeted that she misspoke and that she was referring to the stent procedure.

The comments by Gray are quite appalling considering Sanders is the only one with a history with heart attacks.

After promising to release all medical records after he suffered from a heart attack back in October, Sanders is now backtracking by refusing to release all of the records.

“We have released, I think, quite as much as any other candidate has,” said Sanders. “We released two rather detailed letters from cardiologists and we released a letter that came from the head of the U.S. Congress medical group.”

***Help Us TAKE DOWN The Liberal Media With Our Free Pro-Trump App***

After the heart attack, Sanders vowed to release all of his health records “before the first votes are cast,” adding it was “the right thing to do.”

During an interview on CNN at the time, Sanders said that “people do have a right to know about the health of a senator and someone running for president. At the appropriate time, we’ll make all the medical records public for you or anyone else who wants to see them.”

“We’ll release them, we always planned to release them. And we have more medical records obviously now, and we will release them at the appropriate time,” he said as reported by The Hill.

On Tuesday, Sanders backtracked by joking about the state of his health, saying “If you think I’m not in good health, come on out with me on the campaign trail and I’ll let you introduce me to the three or four rallies a day that we do.”

Sanders’ campaign took a different approach by comparing questions about Sanders’ health to former President Barack Obama’s “birtherism.”

VOTE NOW: Should Pelosi Be REMOVED for disgracing the office of House Speaker?

“The campaign’s national press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, compared requests for Sanders’ full medical records to the birtherism attacks volleyed at former President Barack Obama,” the Daily Beast reported.

Asked by CNN if people deserve to know more about Sanders’ health, Gray said: “I think the American people deserve to know exactly as much as every other candidate has released in this race currently and historically. What you’re seeing right now is really reminiscent of some of the smear and skepticism campaigns that have been run against a lot of different candidates in the past, questioning where they’re from and aspects of their lineage.”

The press secretary went on: “It’s really telling, given that none of the same concern is being demonstrated for Michael Bloomberg, who’s the same age as Bernie Sanders and has suffered heart attacks in the past.”

After Being Pardoned, Rod Blagojevich Says He is a “TRUMPOCRAT”

On Tuesday after being pardoned by President Donald Trump, former Democrat Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted of corruption many years ago, thanked the President for pardoning him as he described himself as a “Trumpocrat.”

“President Trump is the one who did this and I’m profoundly grateful,” Blagojevich said to reporters while while he waited to board his flight home to Chicago on Tuesday. “He’s got, obviously, a big fan in me, and if you’re asking me what my party affiliation is, I’m a Trumpocrat.”






“He didn’t have to do this. He’s a Republican president; I was a Democratic governor,” Blagojevich also noted. “My fellow Democrats have not been very kind to him. In fact, they’ve been very unkind to him.”

Check out what The Daily Wire reported:

Blagojevich served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence he earned for trying to sell then-President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat to the highest bidder. Blagojevich — or “Blago” as he is affectionately known — was captured on tape by the FBI offering to trade favors for the honor of being appointed to succeed Obama, and calling the seat a “f***ing golden” thing that he would not simply give away for free.

The FBI’s investigation also netted former Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., and even, tangentially, the current governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzer, according to the Chicago Tribune. Pritzker was one of a handful of prominent Illinois Democrats offered the seat, but instead of turning Blagojevich down outright, Pritzker tried to negotiate with the governor, suggesting that he could be made state treasurer.

During a phone call in 2008 with Pritzker, Blagojevich said, “Ooh, interesting,” Blagojevich said to Pritzker. “Let’s think about that. You interested in that?”

“Yeah,” Pritzker replied, “that’s the one I would want.”

***FREE ‘Keep America Great’ hat – OFFER EXPIRES SOON***

The Daily Wire continues:

Blagojevich and his wife, Patti, lobbied for his early release, first in the courts and then in the court of public opinion. Most recently, a Federal court tossed out several of the charges on which Blagojevich had been convicted, but stubbornly refused to mitigate his sentence. Patti Blagojevich then went on Fox News to plead her husband’s case directly to the president, who is known to be a regular viewer of the network.

Trump commuted Blago’s sentence Tuesday as part of a wave of commutations and pardons. The president was reportedly sympathetic to Blagojevich’s plight, but told reporters that he was not a personal friend of the former governor (though he did once fire Blagojevich from his show, “Celebrity Apprentice”).

“Yes, we commuted the sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail, a long time. He seems like a very nice person, don’t know him,” President Trump said on his decision to pardon the former Illinois governor.

“So he’ll be able to go back home with his family after serving eight years in jail,” President Trump said. “That was a tremendously powerful, ridiculous sentence, in my opinion, and in the opinion of many others.”

After saying he was surprised by the pardon, Blagojevich expressed that he would be using his freedom to work to improve the criminal justice system. Prison, Blagojevich stated, “all too often persecutes and prosecutes people who did nothing wrong, who over-sentence people, who show no mercy.”

“They can put you into prison for things that aren’t crimes,” he also said, calling the Federal prison system “unfair,” “broken,” and “racist.”

Bernie Sanders Refuses to Release Medical Records

The Sanders campaign also tried getting the attention off of them by hammering Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg instead by lying about his medical past.

Gray claimed Bloomberg had “suffered heart attacks in the past,” which is a flat out lie.

“Mike Bloomberg has *never* had a heart attack,” said Bloomberg advisor Tim O’Brien on Twitter. “Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, has had a heart attack. Those are the facts. It’s a dangerous time when Sanders goes all in with Trumpism.”

Jerry Rice Praises President Trump for Pardoning 49ers Owner

On Tuesday at the White House, Hall of Fame 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice praised President Donald Trump for pardoning former owner of the 49ers Edward DeBartolo Jr.

“I take my hat off to Donald Trump for what he did,” Rice said to reporters.






WATCH:

Check out what USA Today reported:

Trump signed an executive order granting clemency to DeBartolo, the former owner of the San Francisco 49ers who in 1998 was given a $1 million fine and two years of probation for bribing former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards in a gambling fraud scandal.

Several former NFL players met with Trump on Tuesday, including Rice, Jim Brown, Ronnie Lott and Charles Haley. 

Later Tuesday, Trump congratulated DeBartolo in a tweet: “Congratulations to Eddie DeBartolo Jr. and your wonderful family of friends!”

DeBartolo built the 49ers into a dynasty in the 1980s and 1990s during his 23-year run as owner. The NFL, however, suspended him for a year, and he ceded control of the franchise to his sister, Denise DeBartolo York, in 1997.

DeBartolo’s five Super Bowls in 14 years were a record for a single owner at the time. In 2016, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Rice continued by talking about how vital DeBartolo was to the 49ers success, expressing that he “was like the 12th man” on the team.

***Brand New Melania Trump Coin – YOURS FREE***

“He’s the main reason why we won so many Super Bowls,” Rice said. “So today is a great day for him. I’m glad to be here and be a part of that. It’s just something I will never forget. This man, he has done so much in the community, has done so much in NFL football.”
