Comey's Corruption II
I share the frustration many people feel about the lack of punishment, as of now, for those in our intelligence and criminal justice agencies who conspired to destroy a duly elected president. But James Comey hasn't been entirely cleared.
He's been called a "leaker" and a "liar," so I expect he'll be hired by CNN or MSNBC in the next 48 hours. Nevertheless, other investigations could still impact Comey, Brennan, Clapper and others.
For example, Jay Sekulow, one of President Trump's attorneys, said yesterday, "We're in the pregame show. This is just the beginning."
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) agreed, saying, "There's another report [on FISA abuse] that's going to come out from the inspector general in a few weeks. And I wouldn't say James Comey is out of the woods." And federal prosecutor John Durham is also conducting a separate investigation of the Russia collusion hoax.
You can read more here from FBI veteran Kevin Brock.
Last month, progressives celebrated when Montgomery County, Maryland, enacted what the Washington Post called "the strongest ban" on cooperation with ICE in the D.C. region.
But in the weeks since that report, Montgomery County leaders have been scrambling to explain why their sanctuary city policies are a good thing. At least six illegal immigrants have been arrested for rape and sexual abuse in recent days.
Sadly, this is nothing new. A report earlier this year noted that such crimes have been "steadily increasing over the last four years." In addition, identity theft "almost doubled" from 2017 to 2018.
It seems that one of the most upscale Washington, D.C., suburbs is rapidly becoming a sanctuary for criminals. How is all that left-wing ideology working out for the residents of Montgomery County?
The Crack Down Begins
Several key leaders of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement were arrested overnight. This development comes as fresh Chinese army troops were rotated into Hong Kong and the police have denied permits for weekend protests.
It also happens to be the fifth anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party severely limiting free elections in Hong Kong. That action triggered the massive protests led by the Umbrella movement in 2014.
One aspect of the Hong Kong protests that is not widely known is that it is led by young Christians like Joshua Wong. Like fellow believers in mainland China, Joshua has been sent to prison in Hong Kong for speaking up for human rights, and he was among the leaders arrested last night.
Please keep Joshua, the people of Hong Kong and all persecuted believers in China in your prayers.
Praying For Florida
Please join us this Labor Day weekend in praying not only for our president and our country, but for all the good folks of Florida in the path of Hurricane Dorian. The hurricane is currently expected to hit the Florida coast in coming days, perhaps as a severe Category 4 storm.
Values Voter Summit
Join me in our nation's capital, October 11th - 13th, for the 2019 Values Voter Summit.
Vice President Mike Pence said, "The Values Voter Summit [is] the greatest gathering of conservative pro-family Americans in the nation." And he is absolutely right!
That's why American Values has been a proud sponsor of the Summit every year.
As always, this year's Summit will feature an incredible lineup of top government officials, opinion makers and faith leaders.
There will be educational and informative breakout sessions, as well as events honoring those who have made significant contributions to the conservative movement.
American Values will be hosting a special luncheon Saturday, October 12th.

I look forward to seeing you there!
