Brexit Vote Postponed...Again.

The British Parliament held an extraordinary Saturday session to debate Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal. Here’s what we know so far:

● Lawmakers voted to withhold support for Johnson’s deal until all supporting legislation has passed.

● A British law requires the prime minister to request a Brexit delay if a deal is not approved by Oct. 19, but Johnson said, “I will not negotiate a delay with the E.U. And neither does the law compel me to do so.”

● Anti-Brexit protesters are marching through the streets of London. Some Brexit-supporting lawmakers reported requiring police escort.

Fascism on the Streets of Minneapolis Last Night

" Last night President Trump conducted a fabulously successful rally at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. Scott had a great experience that included meeting the President and hearing his reporting praised repeatedly by President Trump. The 20,000 who were lucky enough to get into the Target Center had a wonderful time; by all accounts it was one of Trump’s best rallies.

But outside the arena, things were quite different. Thousands of lawless, violent Democrats “protested” Trump’s appearance by committing assault, among other crimes. They battled police officers. They attacked Republicans leaving Target Center. They set bonfires and burned patriotic regalia. They carried the flag of the defunct Soviet Union.

They spat on peaceful Trump supporters. They assaulted an uncounted number of normal citizens leaving the Target Center. They struck a woman across the head with a piece of lumber. They waved a sign that said, “Blue Lives Don’t F@$king Matter.” The Minneapolis Chief of Police reported, “Objects containing liquid believed to be urine were hurled at some of my officers along with bottles and rocks. Police horses were also assaulted by protesters striking them with sticks.”

These leftists are identical to the Nazi Brownshirts of the 1930s. But make no mistake–they represent today’s Democratic Party. A sitting Democratic State Representative, Aisha Gomez (DFL-Minneapolis), was seen among the fascists, dressed in black like an Antifa hoodlum."

SNL " Joke " Urges Trump Assassination Because Impeachment Takes too Long.

Another day, another left-wing media figure calling for President Donald Trump to be killed on live television.

During a segment on NBC’s Saturday Night Live over the weekend, actor Michael Che was hosting a skit called "The Weekend Update," where he urged the assassination of Trump because the impeachment process "takes too long."

" Alright, maybe I just don’t understand politics well, because, when they said Trump was gettin’ impeached I immediately thought, “Great! Trump’s fired! Let’s get drunk!” Che began.

“But they’re like, “No, he’s just bein’ impeached, but he ain’t exactly ‘peached yet. It’s still gonna take another year or so.” And I’m like, “Well, damn, that sucks, let’s get drunk,” he added.

Che continued, “I mean, president is only a four year job but it feels like it’s taking ’em five years to just fire his ass. It’s frustrating!

“You know, I bet somebody explained how long impeachment takes to John Wilkes Booth and he was like, 'Okay, well, where is he at right now?'" he added.

Not a single person in the audience booed or even cared that the SNL crew had just called for the president of the United States to be assassinated."

How do these Lefty ass holes get away with this ???

SOS Pompeo says State Dept Officials will NOT Show Up for Bogus House Depositions.

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired a broadside at House Democrats on Tuesday, saying State Department officials scheduled to appear this week before committees conducting the impeachment inquiry would not be made available until “we obtain further clarity on these matters.”

The refusal, in a letter to House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D-N.Y.), described the demand for depositions by five officials who played a role in U.S. relations with Ukraine as “an attempt to intimidate, bully, and treat improperly, the distinguished professionals of the Department of State.

On Friday, the committees also subpoenaed Pompeo over what they said was his failure to respond to previous requests related to the inquiry. Pompeo left the country late Monday on a week-long trip to Europe.

His Tuesday letter chastising the committees said that he would “not tolerate such tactics, and I will use all means at my disposal to prevent and expose any attempts to intimidate the dedicated professionals whom I am proud to lead and serve alongside at the Department of State.”

Saying that no subpoenas had been issued for the five depositions, he said "we are not aware of any other authority by which the committee could compel appearance at a depositions,” and that the scheduled depositions thus “could only be read as a request for a voluntary appearance of the five Department officials.”

The committees, Pompeo said, had provided insufficient time for the officials to prepare and to consult both private and State Department lawyers, as well as consultations “regarding the Department’s legitimate interests in safeguarding potentially privileged and classified information.”

Jail Guards Threatening Former Epstein Cellmate Nicholas Tartaglione

Jeffrey Epstein’s former Manhattan cellmate says guards at the lockup have been threatening him since the financier’s death, according to a legal filing by his attorneys Tuesday asking a judge to move him to a new prison.

Hulking ex-cop Nicholas Tartaglione — who briefly bunked with Epstein at the Metropolitan Correctional Center — has been told by various guards there to “shut up,” “stop talking” and “stop complaining,” as questions swirled about how the accused sex trafficker was able to commit suicide in federal custody, Tartaglione attorney Bruce Barket says in a letter to White Plains federal Judge Kenneth Karas.

Tartaglione was sharing a cell with Epstein during what’s believed to have been the 66-year-old’s first suicide attempt, on July 23. The two were separated before Epstein hanged himself on Aug. 10.

Jeffrey Epstein's official autopsy confirms he hanged himself in jail cell
“The clear message Mr. Tartaglione has received is that if he conveys information about the facility or about recent suicide, there will be a price to pay,” Barket’s letter reads. “Whether or not the investigators into the suicide chose to interview Mr. Tartaglione about the attempted suicide to which he was witness or about how the facility is run and the conditions under which the inmates are forced to live, the correction officers know he has information potentially very damaging to the very people now charged with guarding him or their coworkers.”

The 51-year-old former Briarcliff Manor cop is facing the death penalty for his alleged involvement in four drug-related slayings upstate.

While Epstein told his lawyers that Tartaglione was behind his July neck injuries, Barket fiercely denied that allegation.

Barket’s letter also cites the “deplorable” conditions — including “a serious rodent and insect infestation” — at the MCC as a reason to move his client, who is due in court Wednesday for a hearing.

The MCC did not immediately return a request for comment."

What does he know ?

Jeffrey Epstein's Death Officially Ruled a Suicide by NYC Chief Medical Examiner.

" The sudden death of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein in a Manhattan detention center has been ruled a suicide by hanging, according to New York's chief medical examiner.

The much anticipated determination, issued by Dr. Barbara Sampson, refutes a wave of conspiracy theories that have been building since the disgraced financier was found unresponsive at Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center last week.

Lawyers for Epstein issued a statement Friday saying they were dissatisfied with the medical examiner’s conclusions.

Attorneys Martin Weinberg, Reid Weingarten and Michael Miller said it is “indisputable that the authorities violated their own protocols” and they plan conduct their own independent investigation.

Epstein's death is now the subject of at least three federal investigations, involving the FBI, the Justice Department's inspector general and the Bureau of Prisons."
