    Trump supporters turn out en masse as ‘MAGA Gras II’ rolls across North Fork to Greenport
    By Joe Werkmeister and Steve Wick


    A group of motorcycles led the caravan into Greenport.

    Wave after wave of cars, trucks and motorcycles passed down Front Street to First Street in Greenport Sunday afternoon. The noise from truck horns and megaphones was deafening at times.

    The caravan, dubbed MAGA-Gras II, began in East Northport earlier in the morning and continued to Riverhead where a large group of Trump supporters had gathered at the former Walmart to join.

    Supporters of the president lined the south side of Front Street, clustered around Mitchell Park, while protesters lined the north side of the street a hundred yards to the west by Third Street. Everyone on both sides waited for the caravan to leave Riverhead and make its way east to Greenport. A Trump supporter waiting for the caravan, Sandra Benedetto, of Greenport, said, “We will not be silent. We will not go away. We have a different point of view, and we want to be respected for that. We want this to be a peaceful event.”

    The caravan brought traffic to a standstill at times on both Route 58 and Main Road in Southold Town.

    “People were tired of being home, tired of being told what you could and couldn’t do regarding gatherings,” organizer Shawn Farash of West Babylon said in an interview prior to Sunday’s event. “Then we see people labeling violent protests as peaceful protests, so we thought we’re gonna have a peaceful protest ourselves. We’re showing people what it really means to support your First Amendment right.”

    By 12:30, dozens of Biden supporters lined the north side of Front Street. “We want this to be peaceful, but we want to be heard and we want to be present,” said Peter LeVasseur of Sayville. “I am very worried about the direction of this country. I am pro environment and pro immigration.”

    It is interesting that Bob Woodward who is gay and is in love with trump as a sexual being wrote such a stupid thing and the democrats repeat it over and over and over. Dumb asses.

    On the Biden side, the signs were everywhere, from “200,000 lives matter,” about the death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic, to others that called into question the president’s morals. One sign read, “Trump lied – 200,000 died.”

    As everyone waited on the caravan’s arrival, Liz Guerra, of East Marion, handed out leaflets urging people to be silent as the caravan went by.

    While he waited by Mitchell Park, Trump supporter Ryan Sperl, of Greenport, said, “I heard about the rally, and I wanted to be here. My two big issues are immigration and socialism. I grew up in California near the Mexican border. We have to do something about immigration.”

    Southold Town police were out in numbers, with Chief Martin Flatley near Front Street telling the protesters to please stay out of the street and not block traffic. Officers in front of the Trump crowd by the park told people the same.

    “We want to caravan to be able to pass through the village and move on,” he said.

    In an interview on the sidewalk he said something like 700 cars in the caravan left Northport earlier in the day. “We just want to get everyone through the village and out as best as possible,” he said.

    At the height of the caravan — the chief estimated the number at about 500 vehicles — Trump supporters and opponents shouted insults at each other. People on both sides screamed obscenities. The middle finger – from both sides – was ubiquitous. Ear splitting truck horns rocked the air, as did people shouting through megaphones, as Trump banners and American flags fluttered in the cool breeze on the backs of hundreds of trucks.
    I do not think from what I saw Trump supporters were giving them the fin gets. That is a lie.


    At one point mid-afternoon, a small group of Black Lives Matter protesters began shouting at Trump supporters on the opposite side of the street. The ‘f’ word hurled out of a car of other Black Lives Matters supporters as they drove past the Trump crowd.

    The caravan went on for hours; when it looked like it might be over, another wave came through, The crowd mostly dispersed by 4 p.m., with some cars in the Trump caravan parked on side streets and on the Main Road toward Southold. Chief Flatley said one arrest had been made: a man charged with disorderly conduct. great news

  • FBI sex crimes investigator revealed as triggering 2016 investigation of Hillary's emails
    9/18/2020

    thehill reports: An FBI sex crimes investigator helped trigger the October 2016 investigation into then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails. According to an excerpt of the forthcoming book “October Surprise: How the FBI Tried to Save Itself and Crashed an Election” published by The Washington Post, an FBI sex crimes investigator found a tranche of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s emails.
    Special Agent John Robertson was tasked with investigating former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-N.Y.) interactions with a 15-year-old girl. Wiener, who was later convicted on charges of transmitting sexual material to a minor, was married to Abedin at the time. According to the book, while Robertson was searching Weiner’s laptop on a warrant to look for possible images of sex crimes involving children, he found hundreds of thousands of emails between Adedin and Clinton.
    This is a very interesting development considering the 2016 FBI investigation into Hillary's emails even though the Comey FBI never pressed charges, as we now find out an FBI sex crimes investigator was the source that started the 2016 FBI Clinton email investigation. We can only be curious as to why a sex crimes investigator for the FBI was the primary source to beginning the 2016 FBI investigation into Hillary's use of a private email server, and we know a couple years back that Fox News even once highlighted that Clinton emails involved crimes against children.
    ​ We know that Hillary Clinton used her private server that was an unsecured email server to send out thousands of pieces of classified information that the Chinese government even got a hold of, but to find out an FBI sex crimes investigator was the key to the 2016 Clinton email investigation by the FBI probably almost guarantees Clinton emails involved sex crimes and crimes against children.

  • Fauci spoke with Schumer and Randi Weingarten in a town hall with the United Federation of Teachers
    It is not the first time that he has done this. If only Mike Pence never brought him in. He stunk.
    Fauci to speak at festival alongside Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, Black Lives Matter founder
    "Atlantic Festival" will be virtual this year.

    White House coronavirus adviser and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci will speak at a virtual festival this year alongside numerous Democratic and progressive figureheads, including Hillary Clinton.

    The Atlantic Festival, an event that promises to "bring brave thinking and bold ideas to life with four days of can’t-miss conversations, evening headliners, and more," will feature a marquee lineup of numerous liberal luminaries, which aside from Clinton include former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza and television host Samantha Bee.

    It is unclear what topics Fauci will discuss at the event, though he has received top billing on both the event's page and in the Atlantic's announcement of the festival.

    Fauci also spoke at the festival in 2017, during which he criticized how fearful Americans were about pandemics.

    “The American public, I guess understandably, has an issue with the concept of a new risk,” he said at the time. “You live with risks every day. [But] when a new risk comes in that’s far less risky than the risks that you’re living with, you get panicked about the new risk.”

    New Jersey Legislature passes vote-by-mail bill to undermine Trump lawsuit
    By MATT FRIEDMAN 08/27/2020 04:10 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Legislature on Thursday voted to make the state’s November election primarily vote-by-mail — a repeat of what Gov. Phil Murphy already mandated and a move meant to head off a challenge by President Donald Trump’s campaign.

    The Trump campaign last week filed a federal lawsuit against Murphy’s Aug. 14 executive order, claiming, among other things, that the governor ordered the election to be conducted mostly through mail-in ballots in “direct usurpation of the legislature’s authority.”


    The bill, NJ A4475 (20R) — which originally just increased the number of ballot drop boxes available in New Jersey counties — was amended to make an end-run around that argument. It passed the Assembly, 50-28, and the Senate, 23-14.

    “It’s going to undermine the lawsuit,” Assembly member Andrew Zwicker (D-Middlesex), a co-sponsor, said in a phone interview.

    Context: Murphy’s executive order requires that all active registered voters in the state be sent mail-in ballots, similar to what was done for the July 7 primary. Counties are required to have at least 50 percent of their polling places open so voters can either cast provisional ballots in person or hand poll workers their mail-in ballot.

    The Trump campaign lawsuit, which was joined by the Republican State Committee and Republican National Committee, alleges that in addition to being a “brazen power grab,” Murphy’s voting plan violates federal law, the 14th Amendment and the U.S. Constitution’s Elections Clause and Electors Clause.

    The challenge comes as Trump has sued several states in an effort to tamp down against mail-in voting during the pandemic. The president has also justified opposing additional funding to the U.S. Postal Service on the grounds it would help Democrat-run states enact mail-in voting plans.

    The bill approved Thursday also increases the number of ballot drop boxes required in each county beyond the 10 required by Murphy’s executive order, requiring them in front of every county clerk’s office, every municipal clerk’s office in towns with more than 5,000 people, at every four-year college or university with more than 5,000 students and on the main campus of every community college.

    It’s not clear how much the bill would cost, but the Office of Legislative Services said in a fiscal note that drop box-related costs will be paid for with federal funds. The state Division of Elections purchased 105 drop boxes for the July 7 primary at a cost of $525,000, OLS said.

    The Legislature on Thursday passed two other bills meant to smooth out the administration of the Nov. 3 general election:

    — NJ A4276 (20R) would give voters time to “cure” problems with their ballots, such as apparent signature mismatches, to avoid their vote being tossed out.

    — NJ A4320 (20R), would require the state to conduct a public information campaign about mail-in voting and require that election officials accept ballots postmarked by Election Day for up to six days after the election. Murphy’s executive order requires them to be accepted for seven days after the election.

    Impact: Trump has repeatedly used a voter fraud case from Paterson’s May municipal election, in which four people were charged by the state in a scheme involving hundreds of allegedly fraudulent mail-in ballots, to argue mail-in voting is rife for fraud. Murphy has stressed that people were quickly charged, calling it a “positive point.” New Jersey’s July 7 primary saw no reports of ballot fraud, though some counties were slow to count votes.

    New Jersey Republicans have called for in-person voting on machines, and have alleged that the expansion of mail-in voting is aimed at boosting Democratic turnout rather than ensuring voter safety. They also claim it will lead to delays in counting votes.

    “We’re rushing into this and we’re going to have a disaster in the election,” Assembly member Harold Wirths (R-Sussex) said before voting on Thursday. “There’s no way you can convince me that having them in gymnasiums in school and having people six feet apart and pushing buttons isn’t safe.”

    Zwicker said in a phone interview that the legislation protects peoples’ right to vote while ensuring health measures are in place

    “All these people saying ‘I have a Constitutional right to vote by machine.’ There’s a constitutional right to vote. And we have an obligation to make sure that vote is counted,” he said.

    One Democrat, state Sen. Ronald Rice (D-Essex), agreed with Republicans that voters should be able to use machines. Still, he voted for the measure.

    What’s next? The legislation now heads to Murphy’s desk, and it’s expected he’ll sign it. No arguments have been scheduled in the Trump campaign’s lawsuit.

  • Archaeology bombshell: Shipwreck's 'chest of gold' find could solve 16th-century mystery

    ARCHAEOLOGISTS were called in when a worker stumbled across a number of strange artefacts in Africa, leading to what may be one of the most significant shipwrecks ever found.


    We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.
    More than a century ago, a German treasure hunter found a diamond in the Namibian Desert, in an area that came to be known as the Sperrgebiet or "forbidden territory”. De Beers – an international company that specialises in mining hunting – and the Namibian government took control of the area in what became a famously off-limits zone near the mouth of the Orange River. But one worker discovered something far more valuable than diamonds during his shift, uncovering treasure that had been missing for nearly half a millennia.


    Dieter Noli remembers first surveying the scene and spotting a 500-year-old musket and elephant tusks.

    He said in 2016: "It just looked like a disturbed beach, but lying on it were bits and pieces.

    After excavating the area, archaeologists uncovered what they think might be one of the most significant shipwrecks ever found.

    Though they are unable to unequivocally prove it, evidence suggests the vessel is The Bom Jesus (The Good Jesus), a Portuguese ship on its way to India that never made its way beyond the Southern Atlantic.

    Loaded with thousands of mint condition, pure gold coins from Spain and Portugal, historians dated the ship to between 1525 and 1538.

    Cargo on the vessel, including a chest filled with coins, matches that on The Bom Jesus, as detailed in a rare 16th-century book ‘Memorias Das Armadas,’ which lists the vessel as lost.

    Mr Noli added: “We figured out the ship came in, it hit a rock and it leaned over.

    "The superstructure started breaking up and the chest with the coins was in the captain's cabin, and it broke free and fell to the bottom of the sea intact.

    “In breaking up, a very heavy part of the side of the ship fell on that chest and bent some of the coins.

    “You can see the force by which the chest was hit, but it also protected the chest."

    Also among the haul of gold, tin and ivory were 44,000 pounds of copper ingots, which according to marine archaeologist Bruno Werz, could have been key to the ship's preservation.

  • Attorney General Bill Barr has told federal prosecutors to consider charging violent protesters with sedition and other criminal statutes, according to a report.

    Barr made the comments last week during a conference call with U.S. attorneys, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cited "people familiar with the conversation."

    During the call, the news outlet reported that Barr told prosecutors to "be aggressive," to include potentially charging suspects with plotting the overthrow the U.S. government.


    The pertinent statute would fall under the U.S. Code section that deals with seditious conspiracy.

    The 18 U.S. Code subsection 2384 statue reads as follows.

    "If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both."

    During the conference call with prosecutors, Barr reportedly warned that violent demonstrations could grow worse leading up to the November elections.

    The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Just the News. It is about time.

The pertinent statute would fall under the U.S. Code section that deals with seditious conspiracy. The 18 U.S. Code subsection 2384 statue reads as follows. "If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both." During the conference call with prosecutors, Barr reportedly warned that violent demonstrations could grow worse leading up to the November elections. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Just the News. It is about time. (<

    Attorney General William Barr recently leveled criticism at the Black Lives Matter movement, saying that its activists are not actually interested in the lives of African Americans but instead are interested in pushing a broader political agenda.

    Barr made the comments during a speech delivered at Hillsdale College on Wednesday, where he said that while the concept that black lives matter is valid, the activists in the movement are merely using the instances of African Americans killed by law enforcement as “props.”

    The article goes on to state the following:

    “As a proposition, who can quarrel with the proposition, ‘Black lives matter’? But they’re not interested in black lives, they’re interested in props. A small number of blacks that are killed by police during conflict with police, usually less than a dozen a year, who they can use as props to achieve a much broader political agenda,” the attorney general said.
    They make me sick to my stomach.

  • Obama Administration Frantic As Homeland Security Closes In

    by Brooke Singman


    The Senate Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday voted to authorize subpoenas for former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, and other Obama administration officials as part of its broad review into the origins of the Russia investigation.

    The committee on Wednesday held a business meeting to authorize committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., to issue notices for taking depositions, subpoenas, for records, and subpoenas for testimony to individuals relating to the panel’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, the Justice Department inspector general’s review of that investigation, and the “unmasking” of U.S. persons affiliated with the 2016 Trump campaign, transition team and the Trump administration.

    The committee voted 8-6 to authorize the subpoenas.

    The committee also authorized subpoenas for Sidney Blumenthal, former Obama chief of staff Denis McDonough, former FBI counsel Lisa Page, former FBI agent Joe Pientka, former ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, former FBI director of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, former White House national security adviser Susan Rice, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith – who pleaded guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign – among others.

    The committee further authorized subpoenas for “the production of all records” related to the FBI’s original Russia investigation and the Department of Justice Inspector General’s probe, as well as the process of “unmasking” for James Baker, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, DOJ official Bruce Ohr, FBI case agent Steven Somma, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Teftt, former deputy assistant attorney general Tashina Gauhar; and Stefan Halper.

    The committee, earlier this summer, authorized subpoenas for the majority of the individuals that were named. But on Wednesday, after a back-and-forth between Johnson and the top Democrat on the panel, the committee gave the final go ahead, leaving authority on timing and scheduling of depositions and issuance of subpoenas up to the chairman.

    Halper, a Cambridge University professor who reportedly is deeply connected with British and American intelligence agencies, has been widely reported as a confidential source for the FBI during the bureau’s original investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

    Last year, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz was reviewing Halper’s work during the Russia probe, as well as his work with the FBI prior to the start of that investigation.

    During the 2016 campaign, Halper contacted several members of the Trump campaign, including former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and former aide Carter Page. Page also was the subject of several Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants during the campaign

    The committee also authorized a subpoena for James Baker, the director of the Office of Net Assessment at the Defense Department. That office awarded government contracts to Halper, including one in September 2015.

    Last month, Johnson issued the panel’s first subpoena as part of the committee’s Russia review to the FBI, demanding that the bureau produce “all records related to the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”

    “This includes, but is not limited to, all records provided or made available to the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice for its review,” the subpoena states, referring to Horowitz’s review of abuses related to the FISA warrants.

    The subpoena also demands “all records related to requests” to the General Services Administration or the Office of the Inspector General for the GSA for “presidential transition records from November 2016 through December 2017.”

    In June, the committee voted to give Johnson authority to send subpoenas as part of the panel’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe and the process of “unmasking.”

    The committee authorized subpoenas to the FBI for the production of all records related to the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation — the bureau’s internal code name for the Russia probe, which began in July 2016.

    The committee also authorized subpoenas to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence for the production of all records related to the process of “unmasking” U.S. persons or entities affiliated “formally or informally” with the Trump campaign, the Trump transition team or the Trump administration from June 2015 through January 2017.

    Unmasking occurs after U.S. citizens’ conversations are incidentally picked up in conversations with foreign officials who are being monitored by the intelligence community. The U.S. citizens’ identities are supposed to be protected if their participation is incidental and no wrongdoing is suspected. However, officials can determine the U.S. citizens’ names through a process that is supposed to safeguard their rights.

    Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee, in June, also approved a slew of subpoenas for documents and testimony from Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation as part of the panel’s review of the origins of that probe.

  • Biden Post-Election Ukraine Phone Call LEAKED: Undermined Incoming Trump Admin, Vowed To Keep Backchannel Open
    September 17, 2020 Jeff Rainforth Jeff Rainforth,


    This is huge. Surely Obama knew what was going on. This was a deliberate attempt by Biden to sabotage the fledgling Trump administration.

    “Had this been a Republican, the Left would be demanding a whole new round of impeachment trials.

    In a leaked call from late 2016 between then-Vice President Joe Biden and then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, the former VP and current Democratic presidential nominee undermined the incoming Trump administration and set up a backchannel between himself and the Ukraine president.

    The Federalist explained how the call is damaging to Biden and America’s national security, calling Biden’s efforts to undermine the Trump administration a form of “sabotage””


    During the course of the call, Biden badmouthed the incoming administration, saying, “The truth of the matter is that the incoming administration doesn’t know a great deal about [Ukraine]” and that they were unprepared for the transition. This in itself is inappropriate, but it was meant to set the stage for Biden’s next statement and future plans.

    Biden then told Poroshenko, “I don’t plan on going away. As a private citizen, I plan on staying deeply engaged in the endeavor that you have begun and we have begun.” In a matter of moments, Biden undermined the incoming administration, branded them as not knowing anything about Ukraine, and attempted to set up a foreign policy backchannel for himself after he left office as a private citizen, which could violate the Logan Act.

    The Logan Act bars private citizens from engaging in U.S. foreign policy, although its constitutionality remains questionable and no person has ever been convicted of violating it since it was signed into law in 1799. Ironically, this is the same act that, at Joe Biden’s suggestion, the FBI accused National Security Advisor Michael Flynn of violating as a result of a discussion Flynn had with the Russian ambassador to the United States around nearly the same time as Biden’s call with Poroshenko.
    Further, Biden told Poroshenko that he had “been somewhat limited on what I am able to tell [the Trump transition team] about Ukraine,” blaming the limitation on a supposedly late start to the transition process. As The Federalist reported, however, “we now know he said this at the same time the FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies were conducting a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia, known as ‘Crossfire Hurricane,’ of which Ukraine was a part.”

    “So Biden, the sitting vice president of the United States, told a foreign leader whose country was part of a highly classified FBI counterintelligence investigation that there were things he couldn’t share about his country with the incoming administration and that they weren’t cleared. We now know from subsequent investigations that the Trump administration did not in fact collude with Russia, but at the time, Biden didn’t and he was privy to the fact that the FBI had opened the investigation,” The Federalist reported. “Additionally, it is mind-boggling that the vice president felt comfortable telling a foreign leader that there were things he was unable to tell the incoming administration at the same time the Department of Justice and the FBI failed to notify President-elect Trump of potential counterintelligence risks (that ended up not being true) posed by members of his campaign team who might join his administration in official capacities.”

    Democrats spent months trying to impeach Trump over his own phone call with a Ukrainian president, even though a transcript showed no quid pro quo and the new Ukraine president himself said he felt no pressure from the U.S.”
