WASHINGTON — Former national security adviser Michael Flynn was paid more than $67,000 by Russian companies before the presidential election, according to documents released Thursday by a Democratic congressman.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland asked the Trump administration to provide a comprehensive record of Flynn’s contacts with foreign governments and interests.

Flynn accepted $33,750 from Russia’s government-run television system for appearing at a Moscow event in December 2015 — a few months before Flynn began formally advising President Donald Trump’s campaign — and thousands more in expenses covered by the network and in speech fees from other Russian firms, according to the documents.

Flynn’s financial relationship with the RT network may violate a constitutional provision against gifts from foreign governments, said Cummings, who released documents obtained during the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s inquiry into Flynn’s activities before Trump appointed him to become national security adviser.

In addition to the record of Flynn’s foreign contacts, Cummings, the senior Democrat on the committee, also asked the Defense Department to compel Flynn to pay the money he received to the U.S. government.

California’s War on Guns Expands to a War on Ammo Beginning January 2018

December 14, 2017 Breitbart 0

A ban on the possession on bullets purchased out-of-state takes effect January 1, 2018. In 2019, everyone who buys ammunition in California will be required to undergo a background check like those currently required for firearm sales. [The plan is clear. Rather than direct confiscation of firearms, which is unconstitutional, would-be tyrants are gradually increasing rules, regulations, fees, and restrictions so that, eventually, firearms will be confiscated by assessments and red tape.] […]

Alabama: Court Allows the Destruction of Digital Voting Records – ​Outrageous!

December 14, 2017 Gateway Pundit 0

The day before the election, a Montgomery County Circuit Court issued an order directing Alabama election officials to preserve all digital ballot images created at polling places. Less than three hours later, the state Supreme Court granted a stay on the order, thus allowing the destruction of the records. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill and Ed Packard, the state A​dministrator of E​lections, were behind the request to trash the records. The Department of Homeland Security supported the quick destruction of voting records. This stinks to high heaven. […]

The UNHCR is calling out for more money to keep the refugees from flooding Europe. The unspoken message is clear: “Pay up or be sorry.”​ [Crime syndicates use extortion threats like this to sustain their cash flow. It’s called the Protection Racket. “This sure is a nice bar you have. It would be a pity if some hoodlums came in here and messed it up or set fire to it.

December 13, 2017 Breitbart 1

A Bangladesh-born Muslim man, Akayed Ullah, was arrested for trying to bomb the New York Port Authority building, but the device strapped to his body exploded prematurely and only injured him. There was panic in the tunnel, and three other people were injured. Ullah told authorities “They’ve been bombing in my country, and I wanted to do damage here.” Ullah entered the US in 2011 as a foreign relative in the chain-migration program. Chain migration allows new immigrants to the U.S. to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives with them. […]

Democrat Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, has called for President Trump to resign over the provably false ‘sexual misconduct’ allegations against him.
