Trump Orders Navy: Do Not Take Eddie Gallagher’s Navy SEAL Trident Pin

President Trump firmly slapped down the insubordinate Navy Thursday after the service announced it was seeking to punish Naval Special Operations Chief Eddie Gallagher by kicking him out of the SEALs. 

This comes just days after Trump restored Gallagher’s rank and pay grade as part of the Commander in Chief’s efforts to redress abuse in the military legal system against combat service members.

Trump ordered the Navy, via Twitter, to not take Gallagher’s SEAL Trident Pin away from him, “The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin. This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!”

Link to TGP report from Wednesday on the Navy mutiny against Trump with regard to Gallagher.

Gallagher on Tuesday filed an IG complaint against the head of the SEALs, Rear Admiral Colling Green, accusing him of uttering contemptuous words against President Trump in a meeting Monday. 

Green announced he was targeting Gallagher even though Trump had just reinstated his rank following a malicious military prosecution of Gallagher that saw him acquitted of murder charges but convicted of posing with the corpse of an ISIS fighter.

Apple Cancels ‘The Banker’ Premiere After Producer Accused of Sexual Assault

Apple abruptly canceled the world premiere of their new film The Banker at the American Film Institute (AFI) Fest on Wednesday after the film’s producer was accused of sexual assault by his sisters.

The Banker, starring Samuel L Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Nicholas Hoult, and Nia Long tells the true story of two black entrepreneurs who hired a working-class white man to front their business empire and overcome racism in 1960’s America.

On Wednesday evening, the film’s leading producer Bernard Garrett Jr., who is also the son of the film’s subject, was hit by allegations of sexual assault by his two half-sisters.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter:

Garrett Jr.’s half-sisters, roughly 15 years his junior, have recently made Apple aware of their claim that when he was a young man living in their home, he sexually molested them over the course of a few years. The sisters made the claim in connection with separate allegations that the timeline of the film was tweaked in order to leave the girls and their mother out of the story and instead feature Bernard Garrett Sr.’s first wife, even though he had already divorced her by the time of some of the events depicted in the film.

One of the sisters, Cynthia Garrett, has been speaking privately with women’s groups about her abuse claims and named a relative in her 2016 self-published book. She is also authoring a new book outlining her survival, which is due from Salem/Regnery Books next year. Apple was informed of Cynthia Garrett’s concerns via an attorney who asked that the tech giant shelve the movie.

Meanwhile, Cynthia Garrett also took to Twitter to try and expose her brother, accusing him of sexual assault and stealing the family’s life story.


In a statement on Wednesday evening, Apple refused to comment on why the premiere was called off, simply noting unspecified “concerns.”

“We purchased The Banker earlier this year as we were moved by the film’s entertaining and educational story about social change and financial literacy,” the company said in a statement. “Last week some concerns surrounding the film were brought to our attention. We, along with the filmmakers, need some time to look into these matters and determine the best next steps.”
Their decision was backed by the AFI, who said in a statement that they “support Apple’s decision to postpone the premiere.” The Hollywood Reporter says “Garrett Jr.’s credit has disappeared from publicity materials, further appearances have been canceled.”

The controversy will come as a major embarrassment to Apple, which was hoping to release the film as their first feature length project. The film is currently scheduled to hit theatres on December 6th, before heading exclusively to the company’s new Apple TV service early next year.

Pirates Pitcher Vazquez Faces More Child Sex-Related Charges

GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Suspended Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Felipe Vázquez is facing additional charges stemming from an alleged illegal sexual relationship with an underage girl.

Authorities in Westmoreland County filed 21 new charges against Vázquez on Tuesday, including 10 counts of child pornography and 10 counts of unlawful sexual contact with a minor. The 28-year-old already was facing charges including statutory sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of minors.

Common Pleas Court Judge Rita Hathaway denied a request to extradite Vázquez to Florida, where he also faces charges stemming from his relationship with the girl, who moved from Pennsylvania to Florida after the relationship began. The Venezuelan-born Vázquez was denied bail by District Judge Charles Moore out of concerns he may be a flight risk. He remains in custody in Westmoreland County Prison. A formal arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 22.

Vázquez was arrested in September after allegedly telling investigators he attempted to have sex with an underage girl during a meeting at her house in an eastern Pittsburgh suburb in 2017. Police confiscated two electronic devices from Vázquez at the time of his arrest. The criminal complaint outlining the additional charges filed Tuesday said authorities found visual images of a girl in “various stages of nudity” on the devices.

Pennsylvania authorities began investigating the All-Star closer in August after being contacted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The girl’s mother contacted Florida officials after learning of an alleged sexual relationship between Vázquez and the teenager living in Lee County.

Major League Baseball placed Vázquez on administrative leave under its agreement with the players’ association on handling domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

The GOP of the future? More like the GOP of never again

Almost two dozen Republican members of the House have taken their names out of the running for 2020. They have their reasons, from the whines of, “It’s hard being in the minority, waah,” to simply keeping a promise that they would enforce their own personal term limits.

But one stands out as a shining example of what Republican voters should never do to the nation again.

Congressman Will Hurd of Texas has positioned himself as the minority Republican who has denounced President Trump for racism, making him a darling of the Left. Politico absolutely adores him, calling him “the future of the GOP.” He’s a nominal Republican in a Texas district being overrun with illegal immigrants, and so when he said he was not running for re-election in 2020, the Republican brain trust was alarmed. Minority leader Kevin McCarthy said, “That’s a tough seat. Will Hurd is an exceptional person.”

The exceptional Mr. Hurd sits on the Impeachment Committee, oops, I mean Intelligence Committee, where he spent his time glorifying Yovanovitch.

The more people like Will Hurd Republicans try to recruit, the more the party becomes as useless as wet bread.

Yet the Republican establishment will continue to find nominal Republicans for roles such as Hurd’s, complaining that a swing district just has no room for a Republican who doesn’t play the race card or who stands up to the Left against its lies about the president and his voters.

But contrary to the fake news site Politico, Hurd is a perfect example of the GOP not of the future, but of yesteryear. Even better, let’s make him the GOP of never again.

Remember the Republican Party Growth & Opportunity Report of 2013? An entire publication that reprimanded Republican voters for ignoring a person’s race? The publication scolded R voters for not seeing that America “looks different” than they do, implying that we’re all a bunch of white racists who need to embrace amnesty and open borders. The publication came on the heels of the establishment Republicans who tried to foist on us Mitt Romney, another mealy-mouthed nominal Republican who, despite mountains of material with which to destroy Obama’s political future, called him a nice guy and lost.

That Republican report was the road map on how to actually kill the future of the GOP. Trump upended it, not by calling for racial division, but by treating everyone the same.

Trump has been treating people equally, but nominal Republicans like Will Hurd see racism exactly as the Left does. And though Hurd will leave politics next year, he is entertaining a run for the presidency in 2024, but it will be a waste of time.

The thing is, the Republican Party has become larger through Trump, with a strong anti-establishment, anti-mealy-mouthed, anti-racialist, anti-sissypants streak. Meanwhile, the Democrat Party has become completely anti-American.

So there is no room for the Hurds any more, because the Republican brain trust has tried identity politics, and it was rejected strongly by the voters. The real “Growth & Opportunity Project” actually happened when President Trump ignored the advice in that racialist report and instead addressed the big problems people could see, none of which had to do with the color of skin.

STUNNING REPORT: German Official Suggests Obama Protected Christmas Market Terrorist for Months Before His Bloody Attack in Dec. 2016

Guest post by Collin McMahon

As the third anniversary of the Berlin Christmas Market terror attack on Dec. 19, 2016 approaches, a police detective has testified the German government ignored warnings of the danger posed by terrorist Anis Amri.

Christmas Market terrorist Anis Amri

Was the Obama government involved in protecting the prospective mass murderer?

The bombshell testimony came after a year of dilly-dallying and wasting time on the parliamentary investigative committee, AfD co-chair Beatrix von Storch told Breitbart News  today:

“The investigation committee wasted a year hearing irrelevant testimony, and now that we have the first real witness, we find out why: the German government was warned of Anis Amri as a potential terrorist, explicitly and concretely, almost a year ahead of time, and did everything they could to prevent the attack – from being prevented.

The North Rhine-Westfalian state police detective, identified only as “M.”, testified his department had warned Federal and Berlin police, to where Anis Amri had moved from the Rhineland, that Amri was extremely dangerous. The officer was told privately to stand down because pursuing the ISIS terrorist was “too much work”. The order came from “the very top”, the officer was told by his contact in the Federal police. When he asked who precisely, he was told the order came from an intel head of the Federal police and from then-Interior Secretary Thomas de Maizière. M. testified he was “shocked and consternated” by these orders, and spoke to two state prosecutors about the matter, Die Zeit reported.

The spokeswoman for the victim’s families, Astrid Passin, who lost her father in the attack, demanded that former Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière be subpoenaed to testify. “We were always told the higher-ups would be questioned at the very end,” Passin told Die Welt, “but we think that is a mistake.”

The Tunisian Anis Amri came to Germany as a “refugee” 2015 and first lived in Hildesheim in North Rhine Westfalia, where he got in touch with hate preacher Abu Walaa, a known contact person for ISIS in Germany, which also brought him to the attention of investigators. In March 2016, he moved to Berlin, where he frequented Fussilet Mosque, known to be a hotbed of Islamic State agitation and recruitment. Amri was arrested multiple times for drug dealing and forgery, and was known to have used multiple identities and commit welfare fraud, yet he was not deported, even as his asylum request was denied a total of 14 times.

The police office M., however, who sought to alert his superiors to the danger posed by Amri, a highly respected officer who meticulously assembled his case to document Amri’s connections to the Islamic State and the danger he posed, was blocked at every step of the and disciplined by higher-ups for trying to get to the bottom of it, a bestselling author claims.

On Dec. 19, 2016, Anis Amri hijacked a 25-ton semi, killing its Polish driver Lukasz Urban, and ploughing it into the Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz, killing 11 and injuring 55. Harlingen, Texas native Peter Volker was among the dead, his partner Richard Ramirez from San Benito, Texas, was injured.

Germany Christmas Market terror attack in December 2016

Author Stefan Schubert, himself a former police officer, has written a book on the subject of the 2016  Berlin, Germany Chirstmas Market Attack and told Gateway Pundit the cover-up seems to involve the Obama government.

Schubert claims the CIA and Obama government were using Anis Amri as a plant to keep tabs on the Islamic State camps in Sirte and Benghazi, Libya.

On January 24,  2017, CNN reported that a January 18 airstrike carried out on an ISIS  camp near Sirte was linked to Anis Amri and the Christmas Market massacre:


Overnight on January 18-19 (2017), two B-2 bombers making a 30-hour round trip from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, dropped 100 precision munitions on the camps, killing more than 80 ISIS fighters, according to initial Pentagon estimates.

In a news conference on January 19, outgoing Defense Secretary Ash Carter said, “Importantly, these strikes were directed against some of ISIL’s external plotters, who were actively planning operations against our allies in Europe … and may also have been connected with some attacks that have already occurred in Europe.” …

During investigations into Amri before the Berlin attack, two Libyan cell phone numbers were flagged by the German foreign intelligence service BND for further investigation, Germany’s Ministry of Interior revealed last week. In a chronology it released, the ministry also stated Amri had wanted to join ISIS in Syria, Iraq or Libya and was believed to have lived in Berlin with a Moroccan national whose paternal cousins were said to be ISIS members in Syria, Iraq and Libya.

Schubert told the Gateway Pundit his sources claim Amri’s cell phone had been compromised during an arrest and cloned, giving German and US intelligence access to all his communications. BND and CIA were using the location metadata to keep tabs on the location of ISIS camps in Libya, Schubert says, which served as the road map for the Jan. 18 air strike.

Speaking to Cicero magazine, Green Party investigative panel member Hans Christian Ströbele has also voiced the theory that Anis Amri may have been protected by the CIA to continue using him as an intel asset, thereby – perhaps unwittingly – allowing him to execute the terror attack.

“The  Interior Department gave us Anis Amri’s cell phone logs going back to his arrival in Germany, but all the communications with Libya were expunged”, Ströbele said. “He communicated with ISIS in February 2016, and sought advice on a suicide attack. All that is gone from the chronology we got. As of June 2016, Amri was allegedly no longer under surveillance.”

Ströbele speculates the Obama administration began preparing a military strike against ISIS in Libya in fall of 2016, and told all other agencies to stand down. “If Amri had been arrested, it would have tipped off his Libyan counterparts and allowed them to get away.”

AfD MP Petr Bystron conducted a fundraiser for the victims‘ families and sponsored a panel in the German Parliament with author Stefan Schubert. He told Gateway Pundit, „The AfD pushed for a parliamentary investigation into the terror attack, which the other parties first opposed and then tried to stymie with all kinds of useless lines of inquiry. Now, finally, after a year of committee work, a witness has come forward and officially testified that he even alerted former Interior Secretary Thomas De Maiziere to the danger posed by Amri, and yet nothing was done. It seems the government and the Federal police actually went out of their way to protect a known ISIS member like Amri so he could go on to kill 12 people and injure 48. This is a scandal of historic proportions. We will keep pushing for a complete investigation into why this was permitted, and for those responsible to be held accountable.”

Confidence in Trump Economy Hits Highest Level Ever

Support for Donald Trump’s economic policies rose to the highest level of his presidency in November, according to the latest Gallup opinion poll.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans approved of President Trump’s handling of the economy, up from 53 percent in August and 50 percent in May. Approval is dramatically improved from the early days of his presidency, when just 48 percent said they approved.

The share of Americans who say they disapprove of Trump’s economic policies fell to just 42 percent, the lowest level on record. This was as high as 48 percent when Trump took office, nearly tied with his 47 percent approval rating. So the latest results show Americans have become more united in support of Trump’s economic policies.

Trump has not, however, gained support for his trade policies. Forty-five percent said they approved of Trump’s foreign trade policies in February 2017. In the November 2019 survey, forty-four percent said they approved. The low point on this measure came in August 2018, shortly after the Trump administration began to raise tariffs on China and imported metals, when approval dropped to 39 percent. So Trump has won back support as the trade war has progressed.

As in many other areas, Trump enjoys massive approval by members of his own party on economic issues. Ninety-three percent of Republicans say they approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, versus just 18 percent of Democrats. But Trump wins strong marks from independents, 60 percent of whom say they approve of his handling of the economy.

There’s a generational barbell shape to support for Trump on the economy. Fifty-six percent of those between 18 and 34 approve and 62 percent of those older than 55 approve. But just 49 percent between 35 and 54 approve.

More Than 100,000 DACA Applicants Have Been Arrested—Murder, Rape, DUI

More Than 100,000 DACA Applicants Have Been Arrested—Murder, Rape, DUI

More than 100,000 illegal immigrants who requested a special Obama-era amnesty for adults who came to the U.S. as children have criminal histories, according to an alarming report released this month by the government. Offenses committed by the illegal aliens seeking protection, benefits and rights under the policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) include murder, rape, weapon and assault charges. DACA has shielded nearly 800,000 illegal aliens under the age of 31 from deportation and allowed them to obtain work permits and drivers licenses. Obama launched the outrageous measure through executive order in 2012 to help children who came to the U.S. “through no fault of their own.” The Trump administration tried to end DACA in 2017 but open borders groups sued to keep it going and now the Supreme Court is set to decide the matter.

Nunes by the Numbers: Democrats Not Trump Got ‘Caught’ Seven Times

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said in his opening statement at the House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearing on Thursday that it is not President Donald Trump who got “caught” taking part in nefarious behavior and listed the seven times this was the case.

“The Democrats have tried to solve this dilemma with a simple slogan: ‘He got caught!’” Nunes said. “President Trump, we are to believe, was just about to do something wrong, and getting caught was the only reason he backed down from whatever nefarious thought-crime the Democrats are accusing him of almost committing.”

“I once again urge Americans to consider the credibility of the Democrats on this committee who are now hurling these charges,” Nunes said. “For the last three years, it’s not President Trump who got caught, it’s the Democrats who got caught.”

  • They got caught falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians to hack the 2016 elections.
  • They got caught orchestrating this entire farce with the Whistleblower and lying about their secret meetings with him.
  • They got caught defending the false allegations of the Steele dossier, which was paid for by the Democrats.
  • They got caught breaking their promise that impeachment would only go forward with bipartisan support because of how damaging it is to the American people.
  • They got caught running a sham impeachment process featuring secret depositions, hidden transcripts, and an unending flood of Democrat leaks.
  • They got caught trying to obtain nude photos of President Trump from Russian pranksters pretending to be Ukrainians.
  • And they got caught covering up for Alexandra Chalupa—a Democratic National Committee operative who colluded with Ukrainian officials to smear the Trump campaign—by improperly redacting her name from deposition transcripts and refusing to let Americans hear her testimony as a witness in these proceedings.

Nunes noted that this is the last schedule hearing of the “Impeachment Committee” and called for a change in priorities in Congress.

“I sincerely hope the Democrats end this affair as quickly as possible so our nation can begin to heal the many wounds it has inflicted on us,” Nunes said. “The people’s faith in government, and their belief that their vote counts for something, has been shaken.”

“From the Russia hoax to this shoddy Ukrainian sequel, the Democrats got caught,” Nunes said. “Let’s hope they finally learn a lesson, give their conspiracy theories a rest, and focus on governing for a change.”

Thursday’s hearing focused on testimony from Fiona Hill, a former National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia, and David Holmes, an aide to the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine.
