Seven students were killed and twelve more were wounded during a stabbing at a middle school in China’s northwest Shaanxi province earlier today.

The Associated Press reported:

Seven students were killed Friday in a stabbing rampage at a middle school in China’s northwest, authorities said. State broadcaster CCTV said the attack happened in Shaanxi province’s Mizhi county as students were leaving the No. 3 Middle School. It said 12 other students were injured.

The suspect was identified by authorities as a 28-year-old male who used to go to the school. He claimed that he targeted the school because when he attended the school as a child, he was bullied.

Private gun ownership in China is extremely rare due to strict laws. This makes knives and homemade explosives the prime weapons used in most crimes.

BBC reports:

At least seven students have been stabbed to death and 12 injured in a knife attack outside a school in northern China, officials say.

The knife-wielding man attacked the students near Mizhi County Number Three secondary school in Shaanxi province as they were heading home for the day.

A suspect is in police custody.

Chinese police have given his surname as Zhao and say he is a 28-year-old former student of the school.

BBC confirmed the story which pointed to bullying as the main motive behind the shooting. Police have identified the seven dead students as five female students and two male students. Images that were posted on social media show dead bodies of students scattered on the ground while other students stared in horror.

The attack took place at roughly 10:10 local time. The students who were injured in the attack are being treated at a nearby hospital. The ages of the deceased and injured students have not yet been released, however, they are believed to be middle schoolers. This would make them somewhere between the ages of 12 and 15 years old.

Since the gun control laws have become extremely strict, knife attacks have become more of an issue in China.

Text Messages Between Anti-Trump Coup Leaders, Strzok & Page, Finally Released

Image result for Text Messages Between Anti-Trump Coup Leaders, Strzok & Page, Finally Released

Ostensibly, the mission of a special counsel is to operate independent of political considerations and to get to the truth.  In actuality, special counsels are no less subject to political pressure than anyone else in government even if that means burying the truth. 

And, here’s where proof of the Deep State’s espionage-formed coup to overturn the results of the 2016 election is becoming more evident with every drip of text messages, emails and documents that are finally released by the DOJ and FBI that only come under court order.

Lets start with last night when former FBI Director James Comey admitted he had no idea who paid for the Steele Dossier.  That defies credulity.  One of his employees brings him salacious information that can sink a presidential candidate and he failed to ask where it came from?  Let that sink in.

As unbelievable at that wasthat wasn’t a standalone single incident.  When the DNC claimed they had been hacked by Russians, Comey never insisted on doing a forensic examination of those servers to verify the claim. 

These two acts cannot be dismissed as an act of malfeasance by some low-level newbie.  The only conclusion that a reasonable reviewer can come to is that Comey was operating the FBI as an adjunct of the Democratic Party at least to some degree.

Now new text messages seem to confirm not only was that the case, but that he had staffed the entire executive suite with like-minded individuals intent on protecting and advancing Obama, Clinton and the Deep State.

Once President Trump fired Comey, the jilted director became determined to have a special counsel appointed.  Why?  Trump had every right to do so and no one knew better than Comey that he deserved to be removed.  Remember, Trump’s decision came after he received a letter from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recommending Comey’s firing. 

Trump had plenty of other intelligence supplied to him by others warranting Comey’s firing but Rosenstein’s letter appeared to give a clear go ahead from the top of the DOJ to do it.  After Trump acted on Rosenstein’s recommendation, Rosenstein stabbed the president in the back and appointed a special counsel only weeks later.

The 49 pages containing approximately 300 text messages between the FBI’s Peter Strzok and DOJ attorney Lisa Page give a much clearer picture of just how incestuous Robert Mueller’s appointment to special counsel actually was and continues to be.

  PS LP Text Messages Dec 2016 May 2017 by Peter Hasson on Scribd

President Trump fired Comey on May 9, 2017.  Two days later the following text provides confirmation that the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Richard Burr (R-NC) had been convinced by Ranking Member Mark Warner (D-VA) to agree to a special counsel.  Based on what evidence?

The first text seems to confirm that DAG (Rosenstein) had agreed to have the FBI coordinate an investigation even though there was no evidence of any wrong doing by the president. 

The second text, coming only a minute later, reveals Rosenstein had already coordinated with Warner for the appointment of a special counsel even though Rosenstein called for Comey’s firing only a few days earlier.  What changed in Rosenstein’s world to come to that conclusion? 

It’s likely nothing changed and that was the plan from the time Trump was elected.

Almost a year later, on March 12, 2018 we detailed Warner’s involvement with both the FBI and Russian Oligarchs in attempting to develop some credibility for the dossier that Comey had failed to do.  Warner cannot be trusted.

This at least smacks of the Deep State using the levers of government to protect itself and undo the results of the 2016 election.

But, despite the heavy redactions of the remaining texts, additional evidence suggests that the FBI was orchestrating things with the special counsel from their end. 

This started with leaks to the Washington Post and the New York Times on May 17th, both reliable info and narrative dumps for the Deep State to spread its propaganda:

Only four hours after those texts comes one referencing the Gang of Eight who have ascended to their lofty intelligence positions only because the rogue intelligence agencies know they can be counted on to protect them.

Recruiting those responsible (Gang of 8) would be crucial because to the public they are the ones charged with oversight of the intel agencies.  House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes refused to go along and alerted the new president that things were amiss.  That was why he was attacked and impugned until he recused himself.

By early the following morning discussions had already taken place with Aaron Zebley who had been Robert Mueller’s Chief of Staff when Mueller was the Director at the FBI. 

But Mueller wasn’t appointed until the following day so why was the FBI assembling his team and what influence would they hold over the special counsel’s investigation going forward?

Zebley eventually joined the special counsel team.

The picture that emerges from the string of text messages is that the FBI was pulling Mueller’s strings.  But, even if that stopped at some point, how could Mueller be trusted to render a fair and impartial investigation by anyone other than those purported to be colluding to end Trump’s presidency.

After all, Mueller came from the FBI.  His first instincts are to trust their work.  But in this instance the essence of his investigation was to determine not only if Donald Trump had acted improperly but also whether those who were accusing him of acting improperly – CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and FBI Director James Comey – had themselves improperly and illegally used the levers of government to stage a bloodless coup.

Even if Mueller hadn’t been neck deep in the swamp himself, his prejudices towards the agencies that were conspiring against Trump should’ve disqualified him for the job of special counsel.  There was never going to be a legitimate investigation of the criminal misconduct at the DOJ, FBI, CIA, DNI, or the Obama White House, which was necessarily the other side of any corruption or collusion investigation.

This is the way the Washington swamp protects itself.  The foxes, validated by the propaganda of the mainstream media, assign one of their own to guard the hen house. 

The Trump presidency hung on one thin thread.  It was the determination of the lone honest member of the Gang of Eight – Devin Nunes.

Breaking: Ben Carson Has Just Made An Incredible Announcement

Image result for Breaking: Ben Carson Has Just Made An Incredible Announcement

HUD Secretary Ben Carson has just announced that he will be increasing rent payments on low-income
housing tenants.

As reported by money.cnn.com

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced Wednesday a proposal that would increase rent payments for more than two million of the nation’s poorest.

The new low-income rent reform would require households that receive federal housing assistance to pay 35% of their gross income in rent, up from the current requirement of 30% of adjusted income. Also, it would triple the minimum monthly rent these families must pay — from $50 to $150. Roughly 712,000 housing assistance recipients currently pay less than $150 a month.

The change would affect able-bodied, working age Americans who rely on HUD for rental assistance. These folks make up roughly half of the 4.7 million people who receive this federal housing help.

This is something that has never really been done. It may be the beginning in the shift of dependence to independence for those who rely solely on the government to take care of them. It is time for the people to learn to take care of themselves.

If you agreement with Ben Carson’s decision please like and share!

LAPD Officer Arrested For Trying To Smuggle Immigrants Across Border

Image result for LAPD Officer Arrested For Trying To Smuggle Immigrants Across Border

SAN DIEGO (CBSLA) — A Los Angeles police officer has been arrested on federal charges alleging he tried to smuggle two illegal immigrants into the United States this week in southeastern San Diego County.

Mambasse Koulabalo Patara has been charged with violating immigration laws, according to a federal complaint filed Wednesday.

He was arrested early Tuesday morning at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Pine Valley, located about 12 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border.

According to the complaint, at 12:15 a.m. Tuesday, Patara drove up to the checkpoint with two male passengers in a 2006 Toyota Corolla.

While being interviewed by Border Patrol agents, Koulabalo showed them his LAPD badge and stated he was off-duty, the complaint states. Agents later patted him down and found his service-issued gun in his waistband, the complaint reads.

Koulabalo reportedly told border agents his two passengers were U.S. citizens. The men, identified as Herman Lopez and his nephew German Ramirez Gonzalez, eventually admitted they were in the country illegally.

One of the men said they had known Koulabalo for years and had worked for him at his Fontana home. He added they had decided to go to a casino in Alpine in southern San Diego County, before heading to another one in Campo and ending up at the border checkpoint near Pine Valley.

All three men were transported to the Campo Border Patrol Station and arrested at around 1:30 a.m.

Back at his home in Fontana, neighbors were in disbelief.

“I heard what happened, and I’m really shocked,” said one woman. “They’ve always just been a really nice family ever since my husband and I have lived here. […] There’s always multiple sides to every story, so I think that’s important for everyone to keep in mind […] before jumping to conclusions on these types of things.”

“I just don’t believe that he’s doing that,” another neighbor told CBS2. “I don’t believe at all that he’s capable of doing something like that.”

An LAPD spokesperson confirmed to CBS2 that Patara has been placed on paid administrative leave.

If convicted, Koulabalo faces up to five years in prison.

What Trump’s Children Just Did Left Americans Speechless — Will You Still Support Them?

Image result for What Trump’s Children Just Did Left Americans Speechless — Will You Still Support Them?

Public figures like the president are highly scrutinized. But if you really want to know the character of a man, look to his children.

While everyone makes mistakes at one point or another in their lives, the children of a good man will overall behave in the manner in which they were raised.

As such, what President Trump’s children have been spotted doing of late says a LOT about the kind of man we elected as commander-in-chief.

For instance, it was reported that Eric Trump and his wife, Lara, recently donated a whopping $20 million to help sick children.

The money went to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, where experts are researching cures to rare and current-incurable diseases.

When asked by reporters about the donation, Eric described St. Jude’s as a “national treasure.”

Eric is clearly moved while describing his first visit to the hospital, where he met a number of the sick children, whose families have been hoping and praying for benevolent people like the Trump family to finance the cures they need.

Nor is Eric the only one of the Trump children to behave in such a caring and honorable way.

We’ve witnessed similar philanthropy and simple kindness from Ivanka and Donald Jr. on numerous occasions.

And that says everything we need to know about the character of our president.

Paul Ryan forces out House priest

Paul Ryan forces out House priest

US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan forced out the Jesuit priest who had served as House chaplain since 2011, in an apparent partisan squabble, a new report said Thursday.

House Democrats believe the ouster of Rev. Patrick Conroy was “because Republicans thought he was aligned with Democrats,” a senior Democratic aide told The Hill.

Conroy’s letter of resignation, a copy of which was obtained by The Hill, said he was stepping down because of a request from the Wisconsin Republican, who is also a Catholic.

“As you have requested, I hereby offer my resignation as the 60th Chaplain of the United States House of Representatives,” the April 15 letter to Ryan said.

Four sources — two from each party — told the website that Conroy was told he had to retire or he would be canned.

In a prayer during deliberations on tax cuts last year, Conroy asked that lawmakers should be “fair to all Americans,” a new report said Thursday.

One Democratic lawmaker said Ryan objected to the prayer on the House floor that Republicans viewed as critical of the GOP tax cut bill.

Other sources said Ryan thought Conroy favored Democrats in the House, and cited the prayer and the priest’s invitation to a Muslim to offer a prayer before the chambers as the reasons behind the chaplain’s demise.

“Some of the more conservative evangelical Republicans didn’t like that the Father had invited a Muslim person to give the opening prayer,” a source said.

A senior GOP aide said Conroy’s exit “was not because of any particular prayer.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California brought up the forced resignation during the Democrats’ whip meeting in the Capitol Thursday morning.

Ashlee Strong, a spokesman for Ryan, said it was the speaker’s decision, but offered no explanation for the move, adding that Pelosi and her office “were fully read in and did not object.”

Pelosi’s office disputed that she didn’t object.

“Leader Pelosi was given advance notice by Speaker Ryan,” said a Pelosi spokesman, but she “also made it clear to Speaker Ryan that she disagreed with this decision.”

Ryan has appointed Reps. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) and Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), both former pastors, to lead the search effort to find a new chaplain for when Conroy leaves at the end of May.

Mueller, McCabe & Rosenstein Now Allegedly Tied to Cover-Up and Bribery

Image result for Mueller, McCabe & Rosenstein Now Allegedly Tied to Cover-Up and Bribery

Justice Department officials in the District of Maryland announced that Mark Lambert of Mount Airy, Maryland had been indicted on 11 counts related to “bribery, kickbacks and money laundering.”

The indictment show that Lambert and may others from Transport Logistics International (TLI) were involved in several counts of bribery, money laundering, and kick backs with Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin. This was al orchestrated to win business advantages with TENEX – a Kremlin state-owned energy company which owns Uranium One.

TLI would have been the company that ostensibly moved all of the uranium from the U1 deal, but an FBI undercover mole inside the Russian nuclear industry gathered extensive evidence of corruption and blew the scheme wide open.

What does all of that have to do with Robert Mueller?

Zero Hedge says: Robert Mueller’s FBI had been investigating the scheme since at least 2008 – with retiring Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assigned to the ongoing investigation which was hidden from the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS). Had they known, the committee never would have approved the Uranium One deal with TENEX’s parent company, Rosatom. 

Four individuals ended up being prosecuted and handed plea agreements after the Uranium One deal was approved.

Who were the prosecuting DOJ attorneys? Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller’s top investigator in the Trump-Russia probe, Andrew Weissman, the same guy who applauded and praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for defying Trump.

Then it gets even more odd…

According to this report from The Hill, when the time came to charge former Russian uranium industry executive Vadim Mikerinn, the Justice Department failed to call on the deal’s secret informant, William D. Campbell.

Officials told The Hill that prosecutors working for Rosenstein first interviewed Campbell, the informant, after they had already filed a sealed criminal complaint against Mikerin in July 2014.

“While he was Maryland’s chief federal prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office failed to interview the undercover informant in the FBI’s Russian nuclear bribery case before it filed criminal charges in the case in 2014, officials told The Hill,” the report says.

Campbell’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, confirmed the Justice officials’ account.

“The first time Mr. Campbell was interviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s office was after the criminal complaint was filed, and he was never brought before the grand jury before the indictment,” she told The Hill.

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz finds this to be quite troubling, telling The Hill, “I’ve never heard of such a case unless the victim is dead. I’ve never heard of prosecutors making a major case and not talking to the victim before you made it, especially when he was available to them through the FBI.”

“It is negligence, and I’m sure there will be internal issues with the Justice Department and U.S. attorney for making such an obvious mistake,” Dershowitz continued.

Texas Takes on ENTIRE Radical Muslim World With 6-Word Ruling

Image result for Radical Muslim World

They’ve done it in Germany. They’ve done it in Sweden. Now, radical Muslim groups are trying to impose Sharia Law in the state of Texas.

But, as any American knows, you don’t mess with Texas.

Recently, the mayors of several Texas towns became concerned after noticing that local Muslims – most of them immigrants – were settling disputes via their own Sharia courts.

They were bypassing the American courts.

And on many of the occasions where they did turn to the civil courts, the Muslim groups demanded that Sharia Law be recognized and respected.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton was having none of it.

In just six simple words, he shut down the Islamic assault on his state:

“Foreign laws don’t apply to Texas.”

Period. End of story.

Kanye West Just Exposed Obama For Who He Really Is & What He’s Actually Done

Image result for Kanye West Just Exposed Obama For Who He Really Is & What He’s Actually Done

Outspoken rapper Kanye West has done the unthinkable. Not only has he been tweeting his support for President Donald Trump, but he has also trashed former President Barack Obama for not doing anything about the violence in Chicago.

Kanye tweeted: Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.

Recently, the rapper was quoted having said that he “loves Trump” and went so far as to call him a “brother.” West blew up Twitter after he tweeted a photo of himself with a famous red “Make America Great Again” hat.

The President responded to Kanye’s sentiment twice on Twitter.

CNN reported:

Kanye West remained defiant Wednesday amid mounting backlash from fans over the rapper’s positive words about President Donald Trump, tweeting a picture of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and criticizing former President Barack Obama.

“Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed,” he tweeted on Wednesday.
Obama publicly called West a “jackass” in 2009 after the rapper interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech at the VMAs.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” West tweeted earlier Wednesday. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”
Fox News reported that Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, stepped in to clarify a few things about her husband’s tweets. She confronted the media via Twitter, defending Kanye’s behavior. She wrote, “To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this… your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair.”
Kardashian went on to note that she didn’t agree with her husband all the time, but she supports his decision to think for himself.
She clarified, “Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time.”
The left will continue to attack Kanye and anyone else who speaks out against the liberal agenda, but they will not stop the free thinkers of America.

Barely Anyone Caught Brilliant Reason Melania Picked Mount Vernon for French President’s Visit

Image result for Barely Anyone Caught Brilliant Reason Melania Picked Mount Vernon for French President’s Visit

The French President, Emmanuel Macron, accompanied by his wife, Brigitte, made their way to the United States this week after they were invited as honored guests for the administration’s first official state visit. They were welcomed by President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.

Before the state dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Trump along with Mr. and Mrs. Macron made their way from the White House in Washington D.C., to Mount Vernon in Virginia on Monday. As you probably know, Mount Vernon is the historical site of our country’s very first president, George Washington.

The White House’s East Wing historian Jennifer Boswell Pickens wrote in the Daily Caller that First Lady Melania Trump oversaw all of the arrangements for the state visit. There was a certain reason that Melania planned the dinner at that specific location.

Conservative Tribune reports:

Likely due to her deep sense of respect for tradition, Melania Trump chose a dinner at Mt. Vernon with the Macrons as a way to highlight the deep and lengthy relationship between the U.S. and France, which dates back to the American Revolution.

President Washington was actually granted honorary French citizenship by the National Assembly of France in 1792, and his historic home is loaded with numerous gifts presented to him and first lady Martha by French dignitaries.

Chief among the collection are the many gifts from Marquis de Lafayette, who provided military advice and assistance to Washington’s rag-tag Continental Army during the Revolution and remained personal friends with the first president following the war.

One of the gifts was a key to the Bastille prison in France. This is where the French Revolution took place just a few years after the Americans fought for independence.

Mount Vernon has been the place that many presidents have visited over the years. This includes former President Ronald Reagan. Reagan visited Mount Vernon in order to honor George Washington’s 250th birthday. Mount Vernon was also the location at which a 1961 state dinner was hosted by former President John Kennedy, honoring the president of Pakistan.

Mount Vernon was also the chosen location for former President George W. Bush to host high-level talks with the French President at the time, Nicolas Sarkozy.

Mrs. Trump understands the true historical significance of holding an event at the historic site of Mount Vernon. This location relates to our country’s longtime relationship with France. She planned out every single detail of the visit with care. Her attention to detail didn’t go unnoticed.

Conservative Tribune wrote:

Meanwhile, in a related sign of respectful sentiment for the relationship between the two nations, President Macron brought along a gift of his own for President Trump that hasn’t received quite the attention it should have.

According to Reuters, Macron brought with him a small oak sapling tree to be planted on the White House grounds. The sapling was been taken from the site of a monumental World War I battle in France where U.S. Marines fought ferociously and valiantly.

In the Battle of Belleau Wood, which occurred in the Ardennes Forest, the Marines helped French troops fend off a massive assault by German forces in the final year of that bloody war.

The surviving Marines are believed to have gathered here after the horrific battle. This location is now marked with a fountain monument. This monument is meant to honor the “Devil Dogs’” sacrifice. The sapling was transplanted from where the fountain is located.

The more than 200 year relationship between the United States and France was clearly honored by Mr. and Mrs. Trump in welcoming the Macrons with open arms.
