The story we aren't hearing about
“Due to the swift response and execution of their duties, the officers were able to deploy the vehicle denial barriers, prevent any further access to Marine Corps Base Quantico, and detain the individuals who were eventually turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody,” the spokesman said.



You may not have heard, but two Jordanians (AKA Biden specials) tried to drive a box truck into a Marine Corps base. And get this: Potomac Local News , which first broke news of the Marine base incursion, reported that one of the men was on the terror watch list. This is what the open border is destined to produce: a terrorist attack.


The story for those of us who care about the country and the men & women who defend it is that:

“On May 3, 2024,  Marine Corps  Base Quantico’s Criminal Investigations Division arrested two Jordanian noncitizens for trespassing.


Marine Corps Base authorities  notified ERO Washington, D.C. of the apprehensions. Deportation officers from ERO Washington, D.C.’s Criminal Apprehension Program responded and arrested both individuals without incident. Both individuals will remain in ERO custody pending removal proceedings,” ICE spokesman James Covington said in a statement.

“Entering the United States without authorization is a violation of federal law, and those who do so [may] be subject to administrative arrest, and in some cases, criminal prosecution,” Mr. Covington said.

ERO is Enforcement and Removal Operations, ICE’s deportation force.

Marine Corps  Base Quantico described the incident as an “unauthorized access attempt.”

It happened on May 3 at the base’s Fuller Gate.

The two men approached the gate in a box truck and were stopped by the sentries. They said they were making a delivery to the post office.

Military police directed them to a waiting area to conduct a further investigation.

“It was at that time, one of the military police officers noticed the driver, ignoring the direct instructions of the officers, continued to move the vehicle past the holding area and attempted to access  Marine Corps  Base Quantico,” a base spokesman said.

“Due to the swift response and execution of their duties, the officers were able to deploy the vehicle denial barriers, prevent any further access to  Marine Corps  Base Quantico, and detain the individuals who were eventually turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody,” the spokesman said.

Migrants caught making incursion at Marine Corps Base Quantico were Jordanians, DHS says - Washington Times

Notice the date that this happened: May 3, 2024. Today is May 17, 2024. This thing was covered up for a while by we all know who . We call that the Obama shuffle.




In other news:

Yesterday defense lawyers totally destroyed Michael Cohen's credibility when they caught him in another lie. Trump plans to attend his son Barron’s high-school graduation today, and the trial will resume next week. The judge told lawyers to prepare to make closing arguments by Tuesday.

In a 7-2 ruling, the Supreme Court rejected a challenge to how the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is funded, which could have gutted the agency’s regulations on mortgages and banking.

President Biden used "executive privilege" to try and block congress from holding his AG in contempt.

Donald Trump said he was open to letting Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the independent candidate, participate in Presidential debates. The Biden campaign says absolutely not.

Larry Hogan, Maryland’s Republican former governor, said he supports "abortion rights."

Cobalt is necessary for electric-vehicle batteries, and Congo has a lot of it. The Biden administration is changing its policies to get more cobalt to the U.S., upsetting some activists.

Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas pardoned a man who shot a BLM protestor in 2020. Daniel Perry, a former Army sergeant found guilty of murder by a jury in April 2023 and later sentenced to 25 years in prison, is now free.In a statement Thursday, Abbott said, “The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles conducted an exhaustive review of U.S. Army Sergeant Daniel Perry’s personal history and the facts surrounding the July 2020 incident and recommended a Full Pardon and Restoration of Full Civil Rights of Citizenship…. Texas has one of the strongest ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws of self-defense that cannot be nullified by a jury or a progressive District Attorney. I thank the Board for its thorough investigation, and I approve their pardon recommendation.”

Good morning.

The disgraced Michael Cohen heading home yesterday.

TGIF for Michael Cohen. He is off the hot seat, as the conflicted judge Merchan finally acted like a human being and granted the former President the chance to attend his son's graduation.

Learn the law.

The judge didn't gag anyone but Trump.

The rest are free to say whatever the hell they want. Just like Brandon, the judge's daughter, Bragg, perjurer in chief Cohen, Stormy, etc. The judge didn't even bother to sequester the jury; so they were free to leave every day and get the latest on the trial from the TDS driven NY news.

Don't worry, the judge won't be held responsible for running a kangaroo court. Democrats are never held responsible for anything. Just ask Brandon, Hunter, Bill, Hillary, Obama,  Igor Danchenko, Michael Sussmann, etc.

  • Allowing prosecution to keep their witnesses a secret until they were going to testify.
  • Putting a gag order only on Trump
  • Allowing both Stormy Daniels and Cohen free rein to say whatever they wanted during testimony- even though it had nothing to do with the charges in an effort to sway the jury.
  • Not recusing himself for multiple conflicts of interest. He is a Brandon donor; and his daughter's company works directly with Democrats.  Nothing like letting his daughter earn money off of a trial he is overseeing.
  • Merchan barring certain testimony from Trump's main defense witness- because he worked for the FEC and would clearly state why the FEC didn't charge Trump; and that Trump did nothing wrong.
  • Judge forcing Trump to be in a court room instead of on the campaign trail. Nothing like allowing Brandon to campaign unopposed for the length of the trial.
  • Letting the prosecution not clearly state what they are charging Trump with- what exact law he violated.

Sorry if you don't like this trial being called what it is.

You should tell Democrats to stop with the two tier justice. They can start by dragging Weiss from whatever hole he is hiding in to actually prosecute Hunter for the gun law he violated. That trial should start in June; but the milk carton DA/SP that has slow walked and obstructed his own investigation is MIA again.

So you have issues with Trump's attorneys.  They should have done their jobs better.

Not recusing himself for multiple conflicts of interest.

Like Clarence Thomas?  No, "conflicts of interest" was simply another delay tactic. Trump considers anyone that is not MAGA as having a conflict of interest.

Judge forcing Trump to be in a court room instead of on the campaign trail.

It's a CRIMINAL trial for god's sake.

Letting the prosecution not clearly state what they are charging Trump with- what exact law he violated.

Just because YOU were not told who they were, does not mean Trump's attorneys were not informed.

Trump's attorney asked the prosecution to provide the names of the first witnesses. They declined — and the judge won't make them.

After prospective jurors had left the courtroom, Trump attorney Todd Blanche asked if the prosecution could provide the names of its first three witnesses.

Prosecutor Joshua Steinglass said that while prosecutors typically turn over such information, they didn’t want to do so in this case. “Mr. Trump has been tweeting about the witnesses,” he said. “We’re not telling him who the witnesses are.”

“I can’t fault them for that,” Justice Juan Merchan said.

Blanche offered to order Trump to avoid tweeting about witnesses, but Merchan told him, “I don’t think you can make that representation.”

Blanche pressed further, asking that the witness names be disclosed only to attorneys, but Merchan rejected his suggestion.

“I’m not going to order them to do it,” he said.

Seems you don't know what you think you know.

Trump is the only one with a history of witness and jury intimidation.

If the judge is so damn insecure why isn't he having the jury sequestered? Good way from keeping them from being public; and anyone getting a hold of them to intimidate them. Your logic sucks as much as the judge's.

So you have issues with Trump's attorneys.  They should have done their jobs better.

No, I have issues with the fucking judge that reneged on the guidelines of what was agreed to in response. He is the one that allowed the salacious testimony that didn't have shit to do with the charges. He denied the defense objections- and then denied the mistrial. Seems you still don't know how the legal system works. Lawyers can object all they want- but it is up to the judge to allow and enforce those objections.

The judge in former President Donald Trump’s criminal hush money case denied Trump’s plea for a mistrial on Thursday, after the defense argued testimony from adult film star Stormy Daniels was prejudicial, according to reporters in the Manhattan courtroom—Trump’s second unsuccessful mistrial bid this week.

Todd Blanche, an attorney representing Trump, argued after the jury was dismissed Thursday afternoon that Daniels was able to tell a “completely different version of events” in her highly anticipated testimony than what she had said previously,   multiple   outlets   reported—Daniels offered salacious and   specific details   this week on her alleged affair with Trump in 2006.

Blanche called out a specific part of Daniels’ testimony from earlier this week, when she said she   spanked   Trump with a rolled-up magazine, with Blanche saying the statement “almost defies belief that we’re here about a records case.”

New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan rejected the mistrial request, saying he “disagree[d]” with Blanche’s assessment that Daniels provided a new account than what she had previously alleged.

Merchan denied a second motion from Blanche on Thursday to alter the gag order imposed on Trump in the trial to allow the former president to respond to Daniels’ testimony.

Under the   gag order , Trump is prohibited from making public comments about potential witnesses, counsel, jurors and court staff, as well as their family members (Trump   falsely claimed   the order also prevents him from testifying, though he admitted Friday morning he can still testify in the trial).

Blanche unsuccessfully called for a mistrial on Tuesday over what he claimed was a prejudicial testimony by Daniels, when she recounted an incident in 2006 when Trump did not wear a condom— Merchan denied the request, but acknowledged at the time “that there were some things that probably would’ve been better left unsaid.”

This is all on Merchan. A Democrat judge running a kangaroo court seeking a predetermined outcome.

Like Clarence Thomas?  No, "conflicts of interest" was simply another delay tactic. Trump considers anyone that is not MAGA as having a conflict of interest.

Your BS is reeking of BS. Want delay go no further than Hunter Biden. They have been investigating him far longer than Trump; but no trials- just an attempt at a sweetheart plea deal that would have let Hunter off any future charges. Only a Trump appointed judge actually read the deal- accused the prosecution- which then went into full denial and the deal fell apart. Hunter still hasn't faced trial for the gun charge- someone needs to find Weiss and pull him out of the hole he is hiding in. By the way Garland violated the law by appointing Weiss Special Prosecutor.

§ 600.3 Qualifications of the Special Counsel.

( a ) An individual named as Special Counsel shall be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decisionmaking, and with appropriate experience to ensure both that the investigation will be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of Justice policies. The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government. Special Counsels shall agree that their responsibilities as Special Counsel shall take first precedence in their professional lives, and that it may be necessary to devote their full time to the investigation, depending on its complexity and the stage of the investigation.

Weiss is still employed by the DOJ as a DA; and answers directly to Garland. He is not outside the United States Government.

Also, Democrats need to practice what they preach. They suck at recusing themselves. Just like Merchan.

It's a  CRIMINAL  trial for god's sake.

The statute of limitations have run out on two misdemeanor crimes. The misdemeanors have been stretched into felonies based on a supposed violation of federal law that the FEC refused to charge on. Bragg has no standing to prosecute federal law. The judge is allowing the charges to proceed to aid Brandon in the upcoming election.

When Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg first brought charges against Donald Trump in March 2023, the legal theory behind the indictment remained remarkably unclear. Bragg had charged Trump under  New York Penal Law § 175.10 , falsifying business records in the first degree. The falsification of business records alone is a misdemeanor under  § 175.05 —but Bragg had boosted the charge to a felony by alleging that Trump fudged the records with the “intent to commit another crime and aid and conceal the commission thereof.” But what other crime? The indictment didn’t say. 

Merchan is handing the prosecution the case; because they are too stupid to win it themselves.

D emocratic Congresswoman  Ayanna Pressley  has inspired conservative outrage online over a video clip showing her disapproval of "white men failing up."

Pressley, among the progressive House  Democrats  often collectively referred to as "the Squad," made the remark while  addressing  allegations of widespread sexual harassment and discrimination at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Wednesday.

The congresswoman said that she is a survivor of sexual violence while grilling FDIC Chair Martin Gruenberg over a report earlier this month alleging that the agency he leads is riddled with sexual misconduct. Pressley mentioned "white men" after questioning why most of the men accused of harassing their female colleagues received no disciplinary measures.

"According to the FDIC's own reporting, more than 80 percent of harassment complaints resulted in zero discipline," Pressley said. "And when there were repercussions, not a single one resulted in removal, reductions in grade or pay, or any discipline more serious than a temporary suspension."

"I am so tired of white men failing up," she added. This lack of accountability is shameful, inadequate and deeply unsatisfactory, and it is re-traumatizing."

JUST IN: 148 Democrats just voted AGAINST a bill to detain and deport illegal aliens who assault police officers.


A bill aimed at booting illegal immigrants out of the U.S. if they assault a  police officer  passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday evening.

It's one of several pieces of legislation that House Republican leaders are putting up for a vote this week as part of National Police Week.

The bill passed with a 265 to 148 vote, with 54 Democrats voting with the GOP.

AG Merrick Garland says that the reason the DOJ shouldn't obey a subpoena from elected lawmakers is because the DOJ is "a fundamental institution of our democracy."

I'm not getting it.

He is saying that so long as Democrats control the DOJ it is above Congressional oversite.

The second Republicans gain control it will again be fair game.

Garland is a Democrat through and through, and protects the party's interests.

The guy that was killed was one of the protestors (and therefore most likely a liberal). He was beating on the man's car and was carrying an AK47 type weapon.

gee, I wonder how that would compare to a bunch of maga morons in vehicles adorned with trump flags holding up the traffic caught behind them, at 20-30 mph on a 20 mile stretch of bfe texas 2 lane road posted at 60 mph, that would speed up whenever anybody tried to pass them and then swerving in front of them into the opposite lane to block them from passing? would that be a good stand your ground shooting in texas or no? hypothetically, of course...

The judge told lawyers to prepare to make closing arguments by Tuesday.

The lawyers are still in their cross-examination of the last witness for the prosecution, and there will very likely be rebuttal by the prosecution when the defense is done. The defense has not yet started with their side. How in the hell can the judge tell lawyers to prepare for closing arguments by Tuesday? Has the defense already declined to call witnesses? How can this work?

Maybe the judge is simply going to refuse to allow the defense to call any witnesses?

He has all of the defense witness testimony hamstrung anyways. 

Willing to be he is going to uphold every prosecution object to defense witness testimony- unlike what he did for Stormy and Cohen who had free rein to say whatever they wanted on the witness stand; regardless of defense objections.

Jury instructions are going to be very interesting. Unless the judge decides to call a mistrial and grant a new trial. He can still do that, and that would force Trump to spend more time in a court room.

Observing all that this judge has done thus far, do you really thing he would do that?

He might if he feels that the prosecution has not proven their case and the goal is to get a guilty verdict in front of the public before November. And if the second goal is to keep him off the campaign trail. As this is a criminal trial, what's the potential that Trump is remanded to lockup if found guilty? Somehow I don't think that for these charges he would serve prison time, but you never know.

That would mean that he thinks the jury is honest. 

I think they have only one chance to hang a conviction on Trump and it is still full speed ahead.

Never forget that it is not a real trial.

It is not a real judge.

It is not a real charge.

The only thing the jurors are really being asked is whether they hate Donald Trump.

No matter what the defense is able to do, I expect that jury to convict Trump.

That is a great question. The defense had a key witness scheduled, but after what they did to Cohen, why drag it out. They may have had a change of plans.

the gutless unamerican coward that couldn't win the popular vote,

Not a requirement for a Presidential Election.

was impeached twice,

And neither time were these "impeachments" for what the Democrats claimed he did.  

denied the results of a US election,

Just like many Democrats did in 2016 sparking 7 years of failed investigations wasting millions at taxpayer expense.

provoked an insurrection to obstruct the peaceful transfer of power

Still not proven.  

was indicted 4 times with 88 criminal charges

And how many were dropped?  

and is currently in court for demonstrating his and his sycophants attitude towards law and order and conservative family values

So it's "law and order" is what we are seeing?  That's fucking hilarious.

and is actively promoting unconstitutional ideas

And exactly what would those be?

won't take the stand in his own defense no matter how many times that he's publicly stated he would

There is no requirement.  The only requirement is for the Prosecutor to prove guilt.  And, yet again, it appears that has failed as well.

It is plenty if the prosecution did not prove he did beyond a reasonable doubt.
