Secretary of Health and Human Services: Who Is Alex Azar? [News - AllGov]

When President Donald Trump had to find another Secretary of Health and Human Services after Tom Price resigned in disgrace after less than eight months in office, he turned again to Vice President Mike Pences Indiana gang. In one of its members, Alex Azar, Trump has another corporate executive who will be called upon to regulate the industry he recently left.

 

Alex Michael Azar II was born June 17, 1967, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to Alex, an ophthalmologist, and Linda Azar. Azars grandfather came to the United States from Lebanon. Alex later moved with his family to Salisbury, Maryland, where his father set up a successful medical practice. Azar graduated from Parkside High School in Salisbury and went on to Dartmouth College, where he earned a B.A. in government and economics in 1988. He then went to Yale Law School, earning a J.D. in 1991.

 

Azar, a member of the right-wing Federalist Society, then clerked for J. Michael Luttig, a judge on the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, before moving in 1992 to clerk for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

 

Azar worked briefly as an associate at the law firm of Kirkland and Ellis. In September 1994, Ken Starr hired Azar as an assistant independent counsel in the investigation of President Bill Clinton. In this position, he argued that the White House must turn over notes of meetings between First Lady Hillary Clinton, her private lawyer and the White House counsel because members of the federal government are not protected by attorney-client privilege. Azar left the independent counsels office in 1996 to return to private practice, this time as a partner at Wiley, Rein and Fielding.

 

During the 2000 presidential election, Azar worked for the Bush-Cheney campaign and was one of the lawyers contesting the Florida election results on behalf of the GOP. After the Supreme Court decided Bush v Gore in Bushs favor, Azar was repaid by being named general counsel for the Department of Health and Human Services. In April 2005, he was promoted to deputy secretary and chief operating officer for the department and unanimously confirmed by the Senate two months later. In 2006, he used his position to lobby the government of the United Kingdom to allow advertisements for the muscle relaxant DTC and to allow drug manufacturers to advertise directly to patients.

 

Azar left government service in January 2007 to become senior vice president for corporate affairs and communications for drug giant Eli Lilly; essentially, he was the chief lobbyist for the Indianapolis-based corporation. After...

FAKE POLLS: Recent Alabama Polling Shows 3 Point Party Spread in State Where Trump Won by 27 Points The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

A Fox News Poll of 649 likely voters in Alabama released on Thursday and conducted between Monday and Wednesday of this week shows Democratic candidate Doug Jones with an eight point lead over Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore in the December 12 special election for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, 50 percent to 42 percent, with a 3.5 percent margin of error.

That poll stands in striking contrast to a Fox10/Strategy Research poll of 3,000 likely voters in Alabama released on Wednesday and conducted on Monday of this week that shows Moore with a six point lead over Jones, 49 percent to 43 percent, with a two percent margin of error.

The 14 point differential between the two polls conducted over the same three day period contributes to the great uncertainty surrounding the election thrown into chaos by unsubstantiated allegations of sexual harassment made against Judge Moore over the past week by several women

Another unusual aspect of the Fox News Poll released on Thursday that shows Democrat Jones with an eight point lead over Moore is that it appears to contain a sample of Alabama likely voters in which 51 percent voted for Donald Trump and 48 percent voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election.

The FOX10 poll also includes a sampling of respondents where 51% voted for President Trump and 48% voted for Hillary Clinton a 3 point margin.

In 2016 President Trump won Alabama with 62% of the vote to Hillary Clinton with 34.4% of the vote a 27 point margin.

In a estimate using simple statistics, if the polls used the same ratios that President Trump won by in the election, Judge Roy Moore would lead Democrat Jones by 30 points (60% to 30%) in the Fox10 poll and by 15 points (51% to 35%) in the Fox News poll. 

The results of this simple extrapolation of the polling numbers show that Judge Roy Moore is still way ahead of his Democrat challenger in Alabama no matter what the me...

Leaked Democrat Donor and Activist Conference Agenda Shows White Men No Longer Welcome in Party The Gateway Pundit

A secretive Democrat donor and activist conference is being held this week in California. The conference is a place for progressives to meet and share goals and discuss issues of common interest.

A copy of the conference agenda was leaked to the Washington Free Beacon who reported on it today. Pelosi will headline the event along with George Soros.

But if you skim through the weekend agenda two things are clear:
Democrats want to spread their far left California values of open borders, Socialism and identity politics across the US
And white men are no longer valued or welcome in todays Democrat Party.

A secretive three-day conference where big money liberal donors are plotting the next steps of the resistance will be headlined by Friday speeches by billionaire George Soros and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, according to internal documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Democracy Alliance, a donor club of deep-pocketed liberal donors that each pledge to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups, descended on Californias posh La Costa Resort on Wednesday morning for its fall donor summit. The group continued its tradition of secrecy, promising all members and guests of the summit their participation would remain confidential.

The first page of the conference agenda, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and can be viewed in its entirety below, lays out participation guidelines, explaining that the Democracy Alliance is a safe place for donors and activists to meet. Guests are instructed not to share members names with the press and not to post to any social media sites, to contact Democracy Alliance if the media or a blogger contacts them, and to refrain from leaving sensitive materials out where others may find them.

Obama Warned Us This Would Happen Booman Tribune

A year ago today, The New Republic published Brian Beutlers piece: Obama Is Warning America About Trumps Presidency. Are You Listening?. The occasion was a press conference President Obama gave two days prior, on November 14th.  Its worth revisiting both Beutlers article and Obamas warnings.

As Beutler pointed out, President Obama was outwardly upbeat but the subtext of what he was saying was terrifying. While Obama promised to be as helpful as possible and noted repeatedly that Trump would not face the same kind of instant calamities that he had faced at the beginning of his presidency, he clearly did not think Trump was temperamentally fit to be president and did not predict success.

One concern was proper staffing.

The most important point I made, Obama told reporters at the White House, referring to his conversation last week with Trump, was that how you staffparticularly your chief of staff, your national security adviser, your White House counsel, how you set up a process and a system to surface information, generate options for a president, understanding that ultimately the president is going to be the final decision maker, that thats something thats going to have to be attended to right away.

Thats seem prescient in retrospect, considering that Trumps first National Security Adviser lasted only a few weeks and his first chief of staff only a little over half a year. We can do down the list from there, to include Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, and several other important members of his initial team.

Another concern was Trumps lack of respect for the truth.

I think there will be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him well unless he recognizes them and corrects them, Obama added, because when youre a candidate and you say something that is inaccurate or controversial, it has less impact than it does when youre president of the United States. Everybody around the world is paying attention, markets moves. National security issues require a level of precision in order to make sure you dont make mistakes. I think he recognizes that this is different.

Trump has blundered on foreign policy matters from the outset, including famously his treatment of Taiwan and his refusal to commit to NATOs Article Five mutual defense provision. But its his bombast and imprecision on North Korea policy that had the Senate Foreign Relations Committee exploring ways to limit his ability to start a nuclear war earlier this week.

Don't Freak Out If House Passes Tax Bill Booman Tribune

Back on November 3rd, Eric Levitz of New York magazine took a look at what some Republican senators had already said on the record and concluded that its hard to see how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ever becomes law. His focus at that time was on Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, Susan Collins of Maine, and John McCain of Arizona. He didnt mention Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin who has since come out strongly against the bill.

Each of these senators have expressed slightly different concerns. John McCain is reluctant to support the process that is being used since it doesnt follow regular order. This basically means that the bill is being negotiated behind closed doors without expert testimony and open hearings. The opportunity to offer amendments will be limited, as will be the time to debate the bill on the Senate floor. For McCain, this isnt how Congress should operate and it was the primary objection he had to the effort to repeal Obamacare.

Sen. Corker is more concerned about adding to our national debt, and hes promised not to vote for a bill that hurts the nations bottom line. Unless he goes back on this promise, hes going to be a no vote.

Sen. Collins doesnt like the repeal of Obamacares individual mandate that has been added to the bill and has said that she doesnt support it. She also objects to a repeal of the Estate Tax.

Sen. Johnson complains that the bill is imbalanced in favor of large corporations. Like McCain, he also has big problems with the process.

So far, only Johnson has definitively stated that he wont vote for the bill, but the objections of the others have either not been addressed or addressed halfheartedly.

On the House side, the omens look...

Are the Trump Tax Cuts Bad Politics or Not? Booman Tribune

Paul Waldman makes a compelling argument that the Republicans tax bill will be bad politics if it passes. Its the kind of bad policy that leaves a lot of victims who will know the cause of their distress and who will easily be able to assign responsibility for their plight.

I suspect Waldman may be a bit optimistic about those latter points, if for no other reason than that the Mighty Right-Wing Wurlitzer seems to still have a powerful ability to deflect blame and throw sand in peoples eyes. But the real question for Republicans is that theyre terrified of the alternative to passing this legislation. No matter how bad it looks, they keep asking themselves compared to what?

Its a fair point. Doing nothing will be bad politics, too, and so the real question for the GOP is which lousy option is worse.

Theres definitely some benefit to being able to accomplish something, even if its terrible. They can say they did something to harm Obamacare. They can tell their donors that they delivered the truckloads of cash. They can get Trump off their backs and off their case, if only for a little while. For everyone else, theres two sides to every story, and they can muddy the waters.

The way I see their dilemma, this is a live-to-fight-another-day strategy, and there are two ways it can be wrong. The first is if it is unnecessary and they can live to fight another day without it. The second is if it wont make a damn bit of difference in the end and itll just add to their long-term woes.

The surprising victory of Donald Trump proved that the Republicans are capable of misjudging their short-term chances and thinking theyre in a much worse spot than theyre really in. So, maybe theyre panicking without enough justification.

On the other hand, perhaps they think this will keep them from drowning but it actually wont buy them anything in terms of political victories next fall. In that case, it will almost definitely weaken them further.

I think the decisive thing is the donors. The typical large investor in the GOP wants a financial return on investment. If they dont get it, theyre not going to make more large investments.

The GOP thinks, probably correctly, that they may get wiped out next fall largely due to their idiot president. But as long as the donors feel like they were made whole, they can always make a comeback.

And so their decision to impose really bad policy on the nation is most likely the sanest of two miserable choices.

And, yet, theyre so incompetent that t...

Is Ted Cruz Texan Enough for Texas Republicans? Booman Tribune

Hey, do yall remember James Robison? No? Well, then let me have Mike Huckabee reintroduce him to you.

Despite Huckabees inclination toward a forgiving Christianity, Robisons passion drew him in. He dropped out of seminary after one year to take a job as Robisons director of communications.

The way the Moral Majority movement was actually started was there was a rally that James Robison did in 1979 that I helped cordinate, Huckabee said. It was all because of the local television station in Dallas throwing him off the air, because, in a sermon that he preached on television, Robison said homosexuality is a sin. Think: 1979, it wasnt really an outrageous statement. Anyway, they got some complaints and they told him he couldnt be on television. Well, Texas? Are you kidding me? More than ten thousand Christians came to a Freedom Rally at the Reunion Arena, in Dallas, to protest Robisons expulsion. There was this amazing energy coming up from these evangelical Christians, Huckabee said. I remember almost being frightened by it. If someone had gotten to the microphone and said, Lets go four blocks from here and take Channel 8 apart, that audience wouldve taken the last brick off the building.

Did that refresh your recollection?

Good.

It looks like James Robison isnt thrilled with Senator Ted Cruzs performance in office because the vice president and executive producer of Robisons television program Life Today is going to challenge Cruz in a primary.

Christian television executive Bruce Jacobson, who has discussed the possibility of taking on the Texas Republican in a primary, has a now live campaign website, brucefortexas.com, and Twitter handle, @brucefortexas

[Jacobson] worked in the U.S. Department of Transportation under President Ronald Reagan, and served as a deputy regional representative for the Department of Labor under President George H. W. Bush. He also served as a director of a Regional Emergency Management Team during the Bush administration.

I have a couple of other interesting tidbits to note.

A Fort Worth-based super PAC has been raising money to help a potential Jacobson campaign. The group, Texans for Texas, has raised about $25,000. It has paid the Pittsburgh-based firm Brabender Cox, which has ties to Rick Santorum.

The PAC has criticized Cruz for spending too much time out of state during his unsuccessful...

The MTAs Next Big Boondoggle? The Indypendent

There is one thing that New York Citys crumbling, hazardous, $43-billion indebted transit system needs to do to fix itself: replace the MetroCard with an app. Thats according to Joseph Lhota, chair of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and his allies on the agencys governing board.

This $574 million plan, announced by the MTA board on Oct. 25, will implement a fare system the utilizes contactless bank cards and mobile payments to replace the MetroCard. Transactions will be conducted through apps like Apple Pay, as well as contactless cards, credit or debit cards embedded with chips that rely on wireless near field communication technology.

The move to a truly 21st-century method of payment represents a critical step in our overall efforts at modernizing the subway system and improving service for all our customers, Lhota, appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in June, said.

Tapping a credit card or smartphone at a turnstile instead of a MetroCard could amount to a significant timesaver for New York commuters. In addition, the new technology will allow all-door boarding on buses, reducing travel time. These undeniable improvements, however, come at a time of unprecedented emergency at the agency.

Just as the MTA board began extolling the introduction of the costly fare system, New York City Councilmember Helen Rosenthal released a call for an independent commission to study the MTAs runaway costs.

By every available metric, the MTA has the highest capital costs in the world, spending several times more than other global cities for similar projects, the chair of the City Councils Contracts Committee wrote on Oct. 24 in a public letter to Lhota signed by 27 of her colleagues. In a related press release, Rosenthal noted that while Paris was able to build a new line for $370 million per mile, Phase I of the Second Avenue subway cost $2.7 billion per mile.

The contactless fare scheme might seem less absurd if it increased the transit systems efficiency. This may not be the case.

The MTA has commissioned Cubic Transportation Inc., which designed the MetroCard, to install the new fare system.

The company has a singular record of failures in the United States.

Chicagoan blogger Olivia Cole described Cubics Ventra payment system as proof that CTA hates us after the Chicago Transit Authority introduced it to the Windy City in 2013.

From bank cards being charged in addition to the Ventra card, to in...

Mavis Medicine for the Soul The Indypendent

Its time for more love. At least Mavis Staples seems to think so.

Its been a little over a year since Donald Trump elected President and I, at least, think reasons to be happy are few and far between. Everyone on both sides is rehashing and relitigating the 2016 election. We cant agree on much, except that we all cant believe were where we are. I feel as if every piece Ive written or read in the past few months has included the phrase in a country so divided. How do we make it out of this crisis? Hell, how do we make it out of 2017?

Ive got love to give and its time for more love, Staples sings.

Thank God for Mavis, I say to myself.

A gospel and R&B legend, Staples has been performing for more than 60 years. Bob Dylan called her singing voice the most mysterious thing Id ever heard and proposed to marry her in the mid-1960s. She and her family were also close with Dr. Martin Luther King and Staples connections to the civil rights movement make her latest album that much more poignant.

With If All I Was Was Black she once again plants her flag in the resistance. Written and produced by Jeff Tweedy of the bands Wilco and Tweedy, the album is a unique entry in the growing list of recent artistic expressions of dissent. It doesnt come across as particularly angry. It doesnt name names or point fingers. It proposes resistance through love and understanding.

We Go High borrows its central phrase from Michelle Obamas famous speech. Staples proclaims, I know they dont know what theyre doing when they tell their lies, spread around rumors. I know theyre still human and they need my love.

The songs on this album probably arent going to reach the ears of anyone who didnt walk away from Michelles speech with a sense of hope. Staples is trying to reach the people who align with her politics. She wants to talk them off the ledge. This wont be the album that unites us. Rather, its a gentle urging to liberals and lefties to reach out and try to bring our conservative brethren up to speed.

Nowhere is this more resounding than the standout track Build a Bridge. Staples mourns the fact that in a country so divided, we sequester ourselves: Im tired of us living so lonely. And she presents a seemingly impossible solution. Gonna build a bridge right over the ocean, so you can walk right over to me, she sings, her voice elevated by a supporting chorus in an arrangement that seems to indicate this will require a group effort.

Tweedy does a fantastic job showcasing Staples voice throughout the album. The instrumentation adds only what is needed. And though Staples pipes arent as powerful as they used to be, her spirit is as fierce a...

THE GOP TAX BILL IS WHAT POST-POPULARITY DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE No More Mister Nice Blog

The Republican tax bill, in both its House and Senate versions, is awful:

... the Senate tax-cut bill ... lavishes generous permanent tax breaks on corporations, while modest tax cuts for the middle class would vanish into thin air after 2025. Millionaires would enjoy average tax cuts of $5,580 in 2027, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, at which point families earning less than $75,000 a year would pay more taxes.

... it calls for the repeal of the Affordable Care Acts mandate for most people to have health insurance. This would leave 13 million people without insurance and drive up premiums for many others who are already struggling to afford coverage, all in the interest of reducing spending by $338 billion so Republican lawmakers can cut taxes for big businesses....

And if that werent bad enough, this bill, along with a similar measure that the House passed on Thursday with lightning speed, would, because of a 2010 budget law, trigger automatic cuts to Medicare and other important programs that low-income and middle-class Americans depend on.
It's wildly unpopular:
American voters disapprove 52 - 25 percent of the Republican tax plan....

The wealthy would mainly benefit from this tax plan, 61 percent of American voters say, while 24 percent say the middle class will mainly benefit and 6 percent say low-income people would mainly benefit.

American voters say 59 - 33 percent that the Republican tax plan favors the rich at the expense of the middle class.

Only 16 percent of American voters say the Republican tax plan will reduce their taxes, while 35 percent of voters say it will increase their taxes and 36 percent say it won't have much impact on their taxes.

Only 36 percent of voters believe the GOP tax plan will lead to an increase in jobs and economic growth, while 52 percent do not believe it.
And yet even observers who believe Democrats could benefit from a wave election in 2018 think that might not be enough to win them the House (and a Senate majority would be even harder to attain).

We're now living in an era of post-popularity democracy. Republicans simply believe, with good reason, that they don't need popular proposals in order to retain power. They believe they can survive extraordinarily unpopular proposals, because gerrymandering, vote suppression, disciplined propaganda efforts by Fox News and the rest o...

Secret Informant in Fear for His Life After Jeff Sessions DOJ Leaks His Name One Week Before Testifying Against Clinton Crime Family The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Jeff Sessions DOJ leaked the name of the FBI informant in the Clinton Uranium One bribery case.

On the Sean Hannity Show it was reported that the Sessions DOJ told Reuters the mans name who has information on the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One is William D. Campbell.

Campbell he worked as a consultant for a Russian firm.  According to reporter John Solomon the informant is a consultant and his evidence will show Russian agents with suitcases of cash ready to bribe the Clintons for US uranium.

Investigative reporter John Solomon from The Hill told Sean Hannity on Thursday the consultant has video of briefcases full of money used to bribe US officials in the Russia uranium scandal involving Hillary Clinton.

Solomon says the Reuters report today downplaying the informant is completely inaccurate.

The informant says he is in fear for his life since he was outed by the Sessions DOJ.

Campbell will reportedly testify on Monday if he makes it that long.

Via Hannity:

Lets hope Campbell pre-recorded his testimony.  Since he is implicating the Clintons in the largest case of treason in US history he has got to be a marked man.

Ryan got his Republican tax scam through the House yesterday 227-205. No one doubted it would pass the House. Only 13 Republicans dared to stand up for their constituents instead of the multimillionaires and billionaires who will benefit from this travesty. Most were from New York, New Jersey and California. All the Republicans in New Jersey voted "NO" except the richest and most crooked of the lot: Tom MacArthur. In New York most of the Republicans stood with their constituents instead of Trump, including Elise Stefanik, Dan Donovan, Peter King, Lee Zeldin and John Faso. Katko stuck it to his constituents badly--afer announcing he's retiring. The ones who need to be defeated by their constituents in 2018 are Tom Reed, Claudia Tenney and Chris Collins, all crackpot wing-nuts.

Does this Tintype Show Pat Garret and Billy the Kid? bensozia

Six years ago North Carolina lawyer Frank Abrams bought this tintype for $10 at a flea market. He was intrigued, he says, because it seemed to be from the old west, not the sort of thing one normally finds at North Carolina flea markets. He hung it in his house and gave it little thought until he heard about an alleged photo of Billy the Kid that had been valued at $5 million. Looking carefully at this and comparing it to photos of famous western characters, he decided that the man on the far right must be Pat Garret.

You know, "Poor Billy Bonney, you're only twenty-one, and Garret's got your name on every bullet in his gun. . . ." Here is another photograph of Garret, and below are two others. I see the resemblance, but would you say that is definitely the same man? No doubt somebody will go at this with high-tech software, and maybe the image of the man on the far right is clear enough for us to get a pretty good idea. Certainly there are plenty of images of Garret to work with.

Garret was one of those men who was a gambler and a brawler in his youth but then went straight and became a real terror to men just like he had been when he was a little younger, including his old friends. He was elected sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico in 1880. One of...

Aerial Archaeology in the Saudi Desert bensozia

The deserts of the Middle East are dotted with archaeological sites. Because the spaces are so vast and the sites so widely dispersed, little was known about the history of these areas until quite recently. In the 1920s pilots flying over the desert began to report vast stone shapes, and archaeologists even poked into a few in Syria and Jordan.


The shapes includes these "kites," which are thought to be corrals for hunting antelope.

But real progress in surveying the desert was only made after satellite imagery became available starting in 1995. It is now estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of these structures in the deserts of Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Saudia Arabia.

Scotland On Track For Record Renewable Energy Year; Why Are Scottish BiFab Wind Energy Jobs In Danger? #BattleforBiFab Mining Awareness +

Is it just a weird coincidence that this happened during the Climate Conference? Or is it a backdoor attempt to make Scotland depend on coal, oil and gas, especially if Germanys RWE (called Npower in the UK) and the UKs SSE merge? SSE owns 40% of the Beatrice Offshore Wind Ltd (BOWL) project, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) owns 35%, and Chinas Red Rock Power owns 25%, according to the SSE web site. BiFab is a (sub)contractor on the BOWL project to Dutch SHL. RWE operates the largest open pit coal mine in Europe.

Even as Scotland is on track for a record year of renewable electricity generation, with output in the first half of 2017 17% greater than the same period in 2016., and renewables delivered the equivalent of 54% of Scotlands gross electricity consumption in 2016, Scottish wind energy jobs are endangered due to a contract dispute. Approximately 1400 jobs are in jeopardy in Scotland because a Scottish subcontractor (BiFab) to Dutch (SHL) the (main) contractor, working for British utility SSE, hasnt been paid for work done. Reportedly over 2/3rds of the work has been completed by BiFab but theyve been paid for less than 40% by SHL. (On SSE see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE_plc )

Midnight Meme Of The Day! DownWithTyranny!


-by Noah

The scandal of Republican Senate Candidate Judge Roy Moore didn't happen in a vacuum. Politicians of all stripes have all too often felt entitled when it comes to depravity. But, one party, the Republican Party, has perfected it. That Moore has openly acted as he has for decades and been continually rewarded with the backing of his party is no mistake. Nothing about Moore slipped through the cracks. That, sooner or later, a high profile Republican would implode in a scandal of sexual deviance before our eyes was inevitable. The general Republican attitude towards rape provided the environmental conditions that gave us Judge Roy Moore. Call it what it is: Republican Rape Culture. When Republicans say "If True," that's their new "Thoughts & Prayers,"  "Fake News," and "Legitimate Rape;" all of which are tools of avoidance used by depraved sleazebags and cowards as cover.

As today's meme points out, there is no shortage when it comes to Republican apologists for rape. Just as Alabama's Republicans today are loudly defending their candidate, and today's Republican National Committee supports him with on the ground operatives and money, national Republicans had no problem with rape during the Iraq war. No, I'm not talking about soldiers raping women; I'm talking about what happened when employees of Dick Cheney's Halliburton/KBR gang raped a fellow female employee and then locked her in a shipping container to cover up their crime and, probably, in hopes that she would just die. The reaction to the news of this was swift. Decent Americans wanted justice for the victim. The problem was that she had no rights when it came to filing charges against her assailants and her employer. The perps needn't have worried about the consequences of their heinous actions. Why? Because a republican president, George W. Bush had signed an order prohibiting such charges being filed against war contractors like Halliburton/KBR. I'll let you wonder just whose idea that might have been b...

Russia: Sochi Is The Scene Of A Terrible Crime Against The Circassian People Mining Awareness +

From The Conversation:

Sochi is the scene of a terrible crime against Circassian people

Vtrsnqth 1392216591.jpg?ixlib=rb 1.1 Protests are banned in Russia, but have been held by the Circassian diaspora. No Sochi 2014

By Sufian Zhemukhov, George Washington University and Robert Orrtung, George Washington University

The Sochi Olympics shines a spotlight on the forgotten history of the Caucasus, but one group of people has not made news headlines in the same way as neighbouring Chechnya or Dagestan. The Circassian people are natives of Sochi and the surrounding area that has been transformed for the Winter Games. Their world has evolved through a series of tragic events, including genocide, exile and territorial division.

The Circassians suffered defeat at the hands of the Imperial Russian military 150 years ago. Many were killed and even more deported. Then, during Soviet times their land was divided during Stalins experiment with nationalities and Circassians were grouped together with other ethnic groups not related to them. Today, less than 10% of the Circassian population remains on its native soil in the Caucasus.

The Circassian question

The Sochi Olympics touch a nerve among Circassians for several reasons. By an irony of history, the 2014 Olympic Games will mark the 150th anniversary of the Circassian defeat at the hands of Russia. After more than a century of ghting, hundreds of thousands of Circassians were killed by imperial forces. The memory of this defeat is kept keenly alive in the Circassian community. Every year on 21 May, Circassians around the world light 101 candles and observe a minute of silence in memory of the 101-year war.

Sochi itself was the site of the wars last battles and its port was the place from which the Circassians were deported to the Ottoman Empire. Krasnaya Polyana, the area that will be the centre of the 2014 Olympic Games skiing events, marked the spot on 21 May 1864 where a parade of Russian troops celebrated the end of the war. Sochi itself was named after the Circassian ethnic group Shache, which lived there until 1864. It was also the last capital of independent Circassia.

More critical Circassian activists demand that the Sochi Olympics be completely cancelled. On 4 October 2007, several Circassian organisatio...

Rich Cordray Leaving The CFPB Isn't Good-- But I Hope He'll Make A Good Ohio Governor DownWithTyranny!


Governor John Kasich (R-OH) is term-limited and cannot seek re-election. Former Senator and current Attorney General Mike DeWine, current Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, current Lt. Governor Mary Taylor and multimillionaire backbencher Rep. Jim Renacci are all competing in a fiery Republican primary. Kasich is backing his Lt. Governor but virtually every poll shows her in third place behind DeWine and Husted. (Renacci is a non-factor, never even getting into double digits. The most recent poll (August) has DeWine at 36%m Husted at 20%, Taylor at 17% and Renacci at 8%.

The Democrats also have a crowded field-- State Supreme Court Judge Bill O'Neill, former state Rep. Connie Pillich, current state Senator Joe Schiavoni (once Senate Minority Leader), former Rep. Betty Sutton, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and, as of yesterday, CFPB Director (and former state Attorney General) Rich Cordray.

All the never-right professional prognosticators have announced the race "leans Republican." None of them seems to understand what a giant anti-Trump/anti-GOP wave means.

Nervous? John Podesta In Panic Mode After Sessions Weighs Special Counsel For Clinton-Uranium-One Deal The Gateway Pundit

Hillary Clintons 2016 campaign chair is in panic mode, after reports Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing a special counsel to investigate the Uranium-One deal. 
According to Fox News, the Justice Department head ordered senior federal prosecutors to evaluate whether or not a special counsel should investigate the Uranium One deal and alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation. Podesta penned an unhinged op-ed after the news, accusing President Trump and AG Sessions of attempting to turn the U.S. into a banana republic.
Podesta wrote in the Washington Post:
Okay, its official. President Trump wants to upend 230 years of constitutional history and principle to run the U.S. justice system like a banana republic, or perhaps more aptly like what now passes for the rule of law in the country he aspires to emulate, the Russian Federation. What the Founding Fathers built with a written Constitution and 85 Federalist Papers, the president is trying to tear down 140 or 280 characters at a time.
[]
This week, it was reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an apparent effort to appease Trump is considering appointing a special counsel to investigate Clintons role in approving the purchase of Uranium One, a company that owned uranium mines in the United States, by Russias nuclear energy agency. This is what authoritarians and tyrants do. They use the instruments of state power, particularly the wrath of the prosecutor, to rain opprobrium down upon citizens with whom they disagree. It is what Putin did by using the Russian penal system to break the back of Sergei Magnitskys anti-corruption campaign and end his life. Our constitutional system of limited power, checks and balances and individual rights has protected us from such abuses of power. Trump is putting that system to the test.
          []
[I]f Sessions yields to pressure from the president and the presidents House Republican allies, it will be a dark day at the department I once proudly served. The rule of law will have been weakened, and our country will be in further peril.

African Activist Slams Trump for Reversing Ban on Elephant Trophies from Hunts in Zimbabwe & Zambia, NOVEMBER 16, 2017

link: http://youtu.be/kFc0Rv3M6CE
GUESTS- Nnimmo Bassey
Nigerian environmental activist and director of the Health of Mother Earth Foundation.

The Trump administration will allow American trophy hunters to import the bodies of elephants they kill in Zimbabwe and Zambia, reversing a ban put in place by President Obama. The Interior Departments rule change comes even though African elephants are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The policy could affect President Trumps two adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr., who are longtime trophy hunters who have repeatedly posed for photos with dead animals they killed in Africa.

A 2012 picture of Donald Trump Jr. in Zimbabwe shows him standing in front of the corpse of an African elephant, holding a knife in one hand and a severed tail in the other. We speak with Nnimmo Bassey, Nigerian environmental activist and director of the Health of Mother Earth Foundation.

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.
AMY GOODMAN: But, Nnimmo, before you go, we wanted to touch on a few issues. And I dont know if you can talk about this, but its an issue that the Trump administration has been dealing with around Zimbabwe. The Trump administration has reversed an Obama-era rule, allowing American trophy hunters to import the bodies of elephants they kill in Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The Interior Departments rule change comes even though African elephants are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The policy would affect President Trumps both adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr., who are longtime trophy hunters, who have repeatedly posed for photos with dead animals in Africa. A 2012 picture of Donald Trump Jr. in Zimbabwe shows him standing in front of the corpse of an African elephant, holding a knife in one hand and a severed tail in another. As an environmental activist on the continent, your thoughts?

NNIMMO BASSEY: Well, also from the political level, I think, I cant imagine what else will come out of the White House of the United States that will horrify us any more than what weve seen already. But this is actually a very low point, to have the president of the United States reverse such a ban, and as the wildlife in Africa have been decimated by trophy hunters. And right now, we also have the problems of local people being targeted in the process of protecting...

WOW! Book Ties Fusion GPS, John McCain & Mainstream Media to Trump Dossier As New Details Emerge The Gateway Pundit

In yet another twist to the Trump dossier, saga, we now learn that Fusion GPS Co-founder Glenn Simpson personally gave Senator John McCain (R-AZ) a copy of the now discredited dossier. Earlier reports suggested that McCain was made aware of the dossier from British associates, but was never in possession of the documents final draft. 

A new book out by Guardian journalist Luke Harding [Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win,] provides previously unknown details about the Trump dossier and its author, former British spy Christopher Steele, writes the Daily Callers Chuck Ross.

Daily Caller reports:

It has been previously reported that McCain was aware of the dossier before it was published by BuzzFeed on Jan. 10. He was told of its existence in Nov. 2016 by Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador and associate of Steeles. It was also known that a copy was passed to McCain and his associate, David Kramer.

What was not known was that McCain was provided a final copy of the dossier directly by Simpson, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who started Fusion GPS.

Les than twenty-four hours later, Kramer returned to Washington. Next, Simpson shared a copy of the dossier confidentially with McCain.

McCains spokeswoman did not respond to The Daily Callers request for comment.

In a section of Ross piece subtitled Reporters at competing outlets cooperated on anti-Trump efforts, its reveals that mainstream media reports, fiercely competitive over scoops and exclusives, colluded together in an effort to push Trump-Russia hysteria.

Daily Caller has more:

In the book, Harding describes how reporters at competing outlets rallied together as part of an effort to expose Trumps alleged Russia ties.

There was healthy competition still, but reporters on different titles began working together on some s...

My, How Times Have Changed LewRockwell

The Libertarian Forum, edited by Murray N. Rothbard; May 1, 1969.

All through the land, this wondrous month of April, the student revolution has spread to campus after campus, even to the most conservative and most apathetic.

the student rebellion has reached a crescendo this spring which few of us have ever dreamed could be possible.

In this edition, Rothbard focusses on the campus protests of the time.  Before considering further his observations, lets pause to review the concerns of todays college students:

Ann Coulter, Charles Murray, Heather MacDonald, Corey Lewandowski, Betsy DeVos, and Milo Yiannopoulos they might say something that hurts the feelings of these poor delicate snowflakes.  Comfort rooms, cupcakes hot chocolate, and teddy bears are offered for those who melt.

A nice list from Forbes:

Time to buy old US gold coins

  • Cornell Students Hold A Post-election Cry in
  • UT Austin Students Organize Cocks Not Glocks Protest
  • UMass Students Hold A Shit-in
  • UC Merced Students Seek To Disarm Campus Police
  • Gettysburg College Students Sit Down Against Hate
  • U Chicago Students Block Michigan Avenue Traffic For Free Tuition Protest
  • Oberlin Students Demand Low Grades Be Abolished
  • Hampshire College Students Lowered And Burned The American Flag
  • Faculty And Students Try To Silence UVA Founder Thomas Jefferson

Some really earth-shattering stuff.

And for the pice de rsistancea view that takes these present-day campus protests far too seriously; the issues at hand:

campus rape, structural racism, gender-based wage discrimination, and skyrocketing expenses over student housing

To clarify the viewpoint of the author and publisher:

To look at the situation differently, it might help to think alongside Antonio Gramsci, the Italian communist

For anyone unfamiliar with Gramsci, lets just say he was a cultural Marxist before anyone ever heard of either cultural Marxists or the Frankfurt School.

So, this is now.  What was the situation that brought Rothbard such glee in 19...

Mencken Club Address LewRockwell

It is with considerable pleasure that I observe this turnout for the tenth annual gathering of the H.L. Mencken Club. Our organization has survived both its troubled beginnings (which I wont bother to recount on this happy occasion) and its growing pains to become a focal point for the independent Right. This has come to pass because of your kind participation, generous donations, and the persistent work of those who serve on our board. Unlike those who work for the Beltway conservative movement, the H.L. Mencken Club depends entirely on voluntary efforts; and these have come from dedicated people who feel strongly about our mission. And let me acknowledge at the outset the work of our board, all of whose members serve tirelessly without compensation. Despite her protests, I must also give special mention to my wife Mary. This great person, to adopt the rhetoric of President Trump, labors every day to make sure the Club is solvent, dues are dutifully recorded and arrangements are made with hotels so that we can hold our conferences in a pleasant environment. She has even contributed her own pennies in past years to make sure our yearly expenses are met. My wife has made these sacrifices for a club, whose political mission she only vaguely shares, although in last years presidential campaign she proudly identified herself as a Deplorable.

A question that some of us may ask ourselves in our darker moments is why bother to maintain an organization like ours. Many of our members are nearing seventy, some even eighty. The Village Voice and other vehicles of establishment opinion depict us as geriatric babblers who are too doddering to be dangerous. The gargantuan media enterprise that Peter Brimelow styles conservatism, inc. runs away from us like bearers of the Black Plague. The employees of this multibillion dollar enterprise avoid mentioning our names, except to deny they had met us. Until recently, being involved in the H.L. Mencken Club carried a heavy price, at least for those who crave the company of successful professional conservatives.

Allow me to begin my remarks with this question. Have those who mock our mostly older members made note recently of all the graying Fox-news-viewers and aging subscribers to National Review? The average age of the first (according to information gleaned from the British Daily Mail) is 68; while the average age of a National Review reader is 66. Viewers of MSNBC and CNN range on average between 62 and 64.  But there is more disheartening news for media conservatism. Although Fox-news desperately showcases blacks in order to acquire a more politically correct audience, these efforts have yielded meager results. Less than 1.1 per cent of Fox-news viewers are black; and th...

I Never Watched House of Cards LewRockwell

This caught my eye.

The problem with House of Cards is it paints everyone in Washington with the same poison brush. I suspected it would bad for our brand from the start, but tuned in for the first season out of curiosity. I turned off the first episode after Frank Underwood killed a dog with his bare hands. After a year of persuading, friends talked me out of my boycott. I gritted my teeth through three more episodes, until Frank Underwood was in bed with a 20-something female reporter 30 years his junior, who was calling her dad to wish him a happy Fathers Day while the Congressman was ripping her clothes off. We have two twenty-something daughters. I was done.

This was exactly the place where I switched away from Netflix. I realized that this Congressman was a psychopath, and that he was not representative of anything I saw on Capitol Hill. I was there only six months, and I was isolated in an office on the other side of the main office, but what I saw there was the normal run-of-the-mill bureaucracy that is the inevitable result of over-funding by the federal government.

If the money were not so gigantic, most of what goes on in Washingtons political circles would be penny-ante stuff. Its mostly about raising enough money to get re-elected. There are undoubtedly lots of payoffs, but the main one is the promise of employment as a lobbyist after someone has finished his term in Congress. Thats when he makes the big bucks. Its basically multibillion-dollar chiseling. Its not social pathology. Its what governments have done from day one. The difference is simply that the numbers are so big today.

Government is about four things: money, power, sex, and booze. Rare is the politician who is not affected by any of these four. Undoubtedly, some politicians get addicted to one or more of them. But that doesnt mean that he strangles dogs on the street.

I find it remarkable that Kevin Spacey is something of a psychopath. He played the part to the hilt. He did the same in the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Also in The Usual Suspects. Also in American Beauty. I thought he was a great method actor. I was wrong.

REALISM VS. DEVIANCE

Big Conservative Media? LewRockwell

In the era of Trump, Deplorables would be well served to rethink the high esteem in which they have held Big Conservative media, or The Big Con.

There are two kinds of Big Con pundits:

On the one hand, we have those who, after decades of insisting to the GOP base that the election of Democrats is tantamount to national suicide, not only failed to rally behind the GOP presidential nominee when his name was Donald J. Trump, but actively sought to sabotage Trumps prospects both as candidate and as President.

These Big Con-men and women are now known as NeverTrumpers.  They have names like Bill Kristol; Charles Krauthammer; George Will; Peggy Noonan; Michael Medved; Glenn Beck; Ben Shapiro; Erik Erickson; Jonah Goldberg; and Rich Lowry.  They are nationally syndicated columnists, radio hosts, Fox News talking heads, and writers for such conservative publications as Commentary, National Review, The Blaze, and Red State.

On the other hand, there are those Big Con chatterboxes and scribblers who support Trump, but who, nevertheless, spent their careers using their influence to run cover for Republican politicians who betrayed their base at every turn, politicians who talked the talk of limited government, conservatism, freedom, and the rest during campaign season, while walking the walk of ever larger government and cultural leftism when in office.

In fact, these politiciansthe Bushes, McCains, Kasichs, Romneys, Cheneys, Grahams, Rubios, and Ryans of our political worldare some of the very same Republicans who refused to endorse Trump after he received their partys presidential nomination, and who continue to collude, even if by stealth, with Democrats, leftists, and Deep State bureaucrats to undermine Trumps presidency.

Time to buy old US gold coins

Lets take a stroll down memory lane with respect to both divisions of The Big Con.

The BIG CON: NeverTrump

These pundits have been wildly, epically wrong on virtually every subject to which theyve spoken over the years. Whether it is the so-called War on Terror, the war in Iraq, amnesty, or Donald Trumps political prospects, the track record of these conservative sages is quite literally incredible for just how blemished it is.

Due to space constraints, lets look at what some of their most prominent voices were saying regarding the likelihood of Trumps becoming the 45th President of the United States.

In May of 2012, after Mitt Romney embraced Trump when the latter endorsed him, George Will couldnt imagine what voter is going to vote for Romney after he had been seen with this bloviating ign...

Trumps Anti-Peace Asia Trip LewRockwell

President Trumps 5-country Asia tour has nothing to do with seeking peace anywhere, it has not even to do with diplomacy it is entirely a warmongering business trip for the Military Industrial Complex. It is amazing that the world doesnt catch on.

We know about Obamas several years of pivoting to Asia. It resulted largely in the TPP, the Transpacific Partnership, a trade agreement between 12 countries including the US. The first thing Trump did when he came on board is canceling it, claiming that it would only harm the US. Canceling it, in fact, was a good thing, since contrary to what Trump understands, or claims to understand, of US-made international trade, the Asian partners would have suffered, not the US. There is not one single trade agreement the US has instigated, bilateral or multilateral, where the US came out as a loser, or even as an equal, always a winner. The original meaning of trade is not winning or losing, but it is an exchange of equals with equal benefits for all partners. ALBA (Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America) is perhaps one of the few living examples.

Trump doesnt like multilateral trade agreements, because even though he is in control he may not be in total control. He wants to call the shots, every shot. Literally. This is what this 8-day pivot to Asia is all about. It is about selling weapons, the best, the most accurate, the deadliest the world has ever produced. Trumps words almost. And repeated over-and-over-and-over again.

At a press conference in Tokyo, with Japans PM Shinzo Abe, Trump said literally, when pointing at Prime Minister Abe,

[He] will shoot [North Koreas] missiles out of the sky when he completes the purchase of lots of equipment from the United States. One very important thing is that Prime Minister Abe is going to be purchasing massive amounts of [US-made] military equipment, as he should. We make the best by far its a lot of jobs for us, and a lot of safety for Japan (The Guardian, 6/11/2017).

Mexico, As It Is and Wasnt LewRockwell

For Americans concerned about  Mexico and Mexicans, and what sort of wights they be, a little history may help. We seem to know almost nothing about a bordering nation of 130 million. It is not what most of us think it is. It is certainly not what the Loon Right would have us believe.

For many years, until 1910, Mexico was run by Europeans, lastly under Porfirio Diaz, for the benefit of Europeans. Literacy was extremely with economic conditions to match. The country was indeed, to borrow a favorite phrase of those hostile to Latin Americans, a Third-World hellhole. Many nations then were, to include China.

In 1910 the Revolution broke out. It was godawful, as civil wars usually are. It ended in 1921, followed shortly by the Cristero religious war until 1929. This had the usual hideousness favored by religious wars.

It left the country devastated. It hadnt been much to start with, but now it was a wreck. Aldous Huxley, writing in 1934, saw no improvement. (Beyond the Mexique Bay) At least until 1940 much of Mexico was barely civilized, unlettered, lawless, and poor. Things were not all that swell in 1970.

Today, seventy-six years later (says the CIA Factbook), literacy is at 95%; the economy at $2.2 trillion, 12th  in the world in PPP; median age, 28; population growth rate, 1.12%; mothers mean age at first birth, 21.3; total fertility, 2.24 children per woman; life expectancy at birth, 76 years.

Time to buy old US gold coins

And of course internet, airlines, computerized everything, and teenagers pecking at smartphones.

This is a lot of change in less than a mans lifetime. Those hostile to Latin Americans do not want to know this, and usually manage not to.

In many ways Mexico remains a mess, mostly because of organized crime and corruption. Distribution of wealth is badly unequal, being now what the US is becoming. Books could be written about what is wrong with the country. Finland it isnt. But neither is ti remotely a Third-World hell hole despite the squalling of such authorities as Ann Coulter, Manhattans premier she-ass.

It would be a good idea to retire the phrase, Third World.  Any designation that includes both Buenos Aires and Haiti (I have spent time in the slums of Cite Soleil with the US Army) is so broad as to be without meaning. In 1930, China, Mexico, Thailand and so on could reasonably have been called hellholes. None of these even comes close today. The slums of India do, as does much of Africa, yes.

To grasp the degree of educational advance between the Mexico as it was and as  of 1940 and today, look at what is visible on the ground:

The National Republican Party LewRockwell

After Judge Roy Moore won the Alabama Republican senatorial primary election a few weeks ago, I wrote this:

You can bet that the establishment is not finished trying to destroy Roy Moorenot by any stretch of the imagination. When Trump stumped for Luther Strange last week, he said that Judge Moore would have a hard time winning the general election. He said that because he knows that not only will Roy Moore have to defeat the Democrat establishment, he will have to again defeat the Republican establishment. So, Roys fight is far from over.

Boy, were those words an understatement! After forty years in public office; after being investigated more times than probably any man in America; after being removed from office twice for not caving in to unconstitutional judicial rulings; after taking on the President of the United States Donald Trump, the Vice President of the United States Mike Pence, the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and the entire media and political establishments in New York and Washington, D.C.; and after having over $30 million spent against him by the Republican establishment AND WINNINGand just four weeks away from the most important senatorial election in modern American historysuddenly several women come out of nowhere to accuse Roy Moore of sexual improprieties from some forty years ago.

Writing for SonsOfLiberty.com, Tim Brown writes, It seems that Bezos CIA-ties Washington Post has decided to run a hit piece on Moore in which allegations by a woman who was then 14-years-old claims that Moore touched her sexually, and that three other teen girls at the time he was in his early thirties dated him and they hugged and kissed.

The first thing that makes these accusations almost unbelievable is that Moore has been in Alabama politics as a judge for years.  Hes not been in some closet somewhere.

Why are these allegations of things that allegedly took place four decades ago just now coming out?  My guess is its because the establishment knows Roy Moore is the real deal.

Brown also notes that the so-called Washington Post reporter who broke this hit piece against Judge Moore has a rap sheet of her own. She was charged with four infractions of writing bad checks in at least three states. In North Carolina, the reporter was convicted of a cr...

Russia? LewRockwell

The anti-Russia hysteria that has raged in the US for just over a year now appeared poised to spread to the UK last week after British media learned that three past or present Foreign Office ministers including Boris Johnson had been targeted by FBI agents in their investigations into George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.

The reports aroused suspicions that the Leave campaign may have taken money indirectly from the Russian government. Of course, the idea that Russian efforts part of a three-dimensional Russian plot to diminish the UKs international influence managed to sway the vote in favor of Brexit is just as ludicrous as the notion that $100,000 in Facebook promoted posts managed to throw the election to Trump.

And as if to underscore this point, Nigel Farage delivered a speech at the European Parliament where he represents South East England pointing out that George Soros Open Society Foundation has far more influence on elections across the Europe and the US. And if investigators are looking for evidence of foreign influence, they should start there. After all, George Soros recently signed over most of his assets some $18 billion worth to his OSF, which oversees a network of dozens of organizations across Europe.

And what is this money used for? Soros nonprofits have one mission: To promote a globalist agenda of open borders, free trade and liberal democratic values.

Speaking to the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Farage told fellow MEPs he believes that when it comes to international collusion, we are looking in the wrong place. He says Soros influence in Brussels is truly extraordinary,adding: I fear we could be looking at the biggest level of international, political collusion in history, according to Russia Today.

Surviving Winter Weather LewRockwell

Here in the upper Midwest, winter weather can be absolutely brutal. Were talking frigid temperatures, freezing rain, feet of snow, and just a whole lot of no fun when youre trying to go about your daily life.

Sure, if you enjoy snowmobiling, ice fishing, and skiing, the winter months are like paradise, but for those who are just trying to get to and from work each day, though, things can get dicey.

Fortunately, winter weather rarely hits without some advance warning. While we all like to poke fun at the weather forecasters, when it comes to blizzards and such, they get it right far more often than they miss the boat. So, the first line of defense is to pay attention to your favorite weather forecast.

It is exceedingly rare that a winter storm pops up out of nowhere. There is almost always several hours, if not a day or two, of warning.

Traveling in severe winter weather

If at all possible, limit any planned travel during a predicted winter storm. I know, thats often easier said than done. Bosses tend to get a little irritated when employees dont show up. If you have a vacation or sick day you can afford to burn, use it on a day when the roads are going to be sketchy at best. If you can work from home, do so.

Always have emergency supplies and gear in your vehicle. These include jumper cablesa blanket (wool is the best), extra hat and gloves, flashlight with extra batteries, food, water, and a first aid kit. Bonus points for chemical hand warmersglow sticks, and a cell phone charger you can plug into the cigarette lighter in your vehicle.

Robot Apocalypse LewRockwell

Have you noticed all of the news lately about artificial intelligence and robotics, including some things that sound like absolutely terrible ideas? Its like scientists are deliberately trying to bring on a robot apocalypse. They clearly dont watch the same movies that I do.

People are getting more and more onboard with this type of technology. From Alexa to Siri, humans are interacting with artificial intelligence on a regular basis. Siri makes jokes, making the voice from your phone seem more human. It all seems so non-threatening until you look a little deeper.

Robot exoskeletons

With robotic exoskeletons, scientists are handing over superior strength, agility, and endurance to human beings.

For example, Ford has been rolling out robotic exoskeletons for their workers in an attempt to battle human weakness. The wearable technology is called the EksoVest and it increases upper body strength, supports the arms, decreases fatigue, and reduces the chance of injury.

Its related to technology created by DARPA, which has been trying to create supersoldiers with robotic technology for decades.

Over the years, DARPA has invested billions into exoskeleton suits for ground troops. This wearable robotic system gives soldiers the ability to carry heavier objects, run faster, and even leap over large obstacles.

Gosh, what could possibly go wrong with this?

Artificial intelligence with mental illness

Then we have a computer scientist who is deliberately creating AI with mental illness.

This tortured artist of an AI is called DABUS, short for device for the autonomous bootstrapping of unified Sentience. It was created by computer scientist Stephen Thaler, who used a technique called generative adversarial networks to mimic the extreme fluctuations in thought and emotion experienced by humans who suffer from mental illness

Their process triggers unhappy associations and fluctuations in rhythm. The result is an AI interface with symptoms of insanity.

At one end, we see all the characteristic symptoms of mental illness, hallucinations, attention deficit and mania,...

10 Award-Winning Optical Illusions LewRockwell

When the new book Champions of Illusion: The Science Behind Mind-Boggling Images and Mystifying Brain Puzzles arrived at the Mental Floss offices, we couldnt flip through itand flip our brains outfast enough.

Created by Susana Martinez-Conde and Stephen Macknik, professors of ophthalmology, neurology, physiology, and pharmacology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, the book is a fascinating compilation of award-winning images from the Best Illusion of the Year contest, which Martinez-Conde and Macknik first created for a neuroscience conference in 2005. Since then, the contest has produced some truly mind-bending mind tricks that challenge our sense of perception of the world around us. As the authors write:

Your brain creates a simulation of the world that may or may not match the real thing. The reality you experience is the result of your exclusive interaction with that simulation. We define illusions as the phenomena in which your perception differs from physical reality in a way that is readily evident. You may see something that is not there, or fail to see something that is there, or see something in a way that does not reflect its physical properties.

Just as a painter creates the illusion of depth on a flat canvas, our brain creates the illusion of depth based on information arriving from our essentially two-dimensional retinas. Illusions show us that depth, color, brightness, and shape are not absolute terms but are subjective, relative experiences created actively by our brains circuits. This is true not only of visual experiences but of any and all sensory perceptions, and even of how we ponder our emotions, thoughts, and memories. Whether we are experiencing the feeling of redness, the appearance of squareness, or emotions such as love and hate, these are the result of the activity of neurons in our brain.

Yes, there is a real world out there, and you perceive events that occur around you, however incorrectly or incompletely. But you have never actually lived in the real world, in the sense that your experience never matches physical reality perfectly. Your brain instead gathers pieces of data from your sensory systemssome of which are quite imprecise or, frankly, wrong.

Thank Goodness They Were Armed LewRockwell

Originally published by AmmoLand.com.

Louisiana  Here is some news you wont find in the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love.

Self-defense instructor Elizabeth Hautman joined the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at three new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they trained and prepared?   What can we learn from their experience? Listen and find out. (19 minute podcast)

All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.

First story-  Are you armed when youre walking downtown at night?

Youre walking back to your car. It is late at night. A man comes up to you and says, Give me your wallet. You almost dont believe it. Youre about to ask him to say it again when you notice the gun in his hand. Youre being robbed. You start to back up, and the robber raises his gun. You put your wallet in your left hand. Then you reach for your handgun with your right hand. You have a concealed carry permit, and your armed. You shoot your attacker. Hes startled, and you take that moment to run away.

Then you call police.

Second Story-  Are you armed at home?

Youre in your room at your familys home. It is 2am, and you hear yelling from the front door. A large group of men have broken into your home. They have guns pointed at everyone. You are still in the back hallway and you hear the robbers beating and threatening your family. You go back to your room. You grab your gun and move toward the front of the house. You start shooting as you round the corner. The robbers run.

Third story- Are you armed when you walk down the street?

It is early in the morning when you finally arrive home. You park your car on the street. You walk up to your front door when a young man steps up behind you and points a gun at you. He demands your wallet, your phone, and your keys. You have your Illinois concealed carry permit. Youre carrying. You drop the bag in your hands. You step to the side and then draw your own firearm. You shoot several times. Then you run.

BOOM! POTUS Trump Wins the Internet Today With Al Franken Kill Shot The Gateway Pundit

President Trump came out swinging on Twitter Thursday evening and absolutely destroyed Al Franken.

Trump first tweeted, The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps? .. OUCH!

Then Trump hits Franken with a kill shot.

.And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?

Democrat Senator Al Franken is under siege after model and radio host Leeann Tweeden accused him of sexual assault. Tweeden also provided photo evidence of the assault.

A second woman came forward and accused Franken of harassing and stalking her.

Conservatives set Twitter ablaze calling for Frankens resignation using the hashtag #ResignAl.

New Study: "Natural Gas" Has No Climate Benefit, Will Make Things Worse DownWithTyranny!

Your methane bridge to nowhere (source)

by Gaius Publius

I've seen this report referenced several times, but none of those mentions is getting traction. So time to repeat. The idea that methane, so-called "clean natural gas" or "clean energy," is a bridge fuel that can make our climate problem better is a lie.

Not only that, it's an obvious lie. If you want to eliminate dust and grit, say, from blowing through an open window into your home, you don't half-close the window that lets it in. You close it all the way. If you want to eliminate all carbon emissions from burning fossil fuel, you don't start burning a different fossil fuel. You stop burning all fossil fuels, including methane.

That's just common sense. It makes even more sense when you consider that the Big Oil barons who own the oil companies also own many of the methane companies. Of the ten top drillers of fracked gas in the U.S., the largest by far is:
1. Exxon Mobil

The biggest natural gas producer is also the country's biggest oil company and one of the most profitable corporations in the world. Exxon has operations in every continent but Antarctica. Its oil and gas operations range across several states, from Pennsylvania to Colorado, and it also has wells in the Gulf of Mexico and off the California coast.

With the purchase of XTO, Exxon produces nearly 50 percent more gas than its closest competitor. Earlier this year, Exxon began running ads touting natural gas as a safe, clean source of domestic energy. About two-thirds of the company's domestic reserves are now in natural gas, with the rest in oil.
Others on the top ten list include BP, ConocoPhillips and Chevron. So call the promotion of "clean natural gas" a profit protection plan for Big Oil as well.

Do we want Big Oil companies to be profitable? Only if they abandon carbon fuel extraction and go into an entirely different, entirely anodyne...

Breaking: FBI Informant in Clinton Uranium One Bribery Case has Video of Briefcases Full of Money! (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

The Jeff Sessions DOJ leaked the name of the FBI informant in the Clinton Uranium One bribery case.

The Sessions DOJ told Reuters the mans name is William D. Campbell and he worked as a lobbyist for a Russian firm. According to reporter John Solomon the informant is a consultant and his evidence will show Russian agents with suitcases of cash to bribe the Clintons for US uranium.

Investigative reporter John Solomon told Sean Hannity on Thursday the consultant has video of briefcases full of money in the bribery of case on Hillary Clinton.

Solomon says the Reuters report today downplaying the informant is completely inaccurate.

The informant says he is in fear for his life since he was outed by the Sessions DOJ.
Campbell will reportedly testify on Monday.

The informant will testify next week before Congress.

Heres what Hannity told his listeners on Thursday:

You know, I have an experience, look, obviously its not like what you guys went through. One day I went down to the green room at the Fox News channel and Barry Farber, who you know is one of the great radio pioneers and I went to see him. It was in the Hannity and Colmes days. Im trying to have a conversation with Barry Farber and Al Franken is in there screaming at me and Im like alright I dont want to talk to you, Im here to see my friend. Finally it gets to the point that I cant even have it and I said alright Barry good to see you my friend, God bless you, give him a hug and walked out. [Franken] is screaming at me, following me and the halls of Fox are filled with security guys and literally he would not stop. They called the code and then security literally surrounded this guy.

Franken is being accused of sexually harassing not one, but two women. Los Angeles anchor Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent when they were traveling on a USO tour in 2006.

According to Tweeden, He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said OK so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.

The second accuser is Melanie Morgan of Media Equalizer.

The Wall: Cards Against Humanity Takes On Don the Con Trump's Biggest, Best, And Most Tremendous Con! DownWithTyranny!




-by Noah
"I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I build them very inexpensively."
-Seor Trumpanzee
From the day he announced his candidacy, Senor Trumpanzee played on the paranoid prejudices and fears of republican and conservative independent voters. Like any master of the conman craft, he knew how to motivate them into voting for him. He knew where the buttons were and he pressed them. "They're rapists." "The drugs." "Mexico isn't sending their best." "They're stealing our jobs." He pressed and he pressed those reactionary emotional buttons over and over again. He's still doing it and his hate-filled and gullible supporters are still eating it up like dogs raiding the cat's litter box.

The wall was always a con. Remember "And Mexico will pay for it?" Now that's "There are other ways they'll be made to pay for it." That's all 3-Card Monte stuff. At the end of the dark days of Trump, the people paying for it will be us, the American taxpayers, one way or the other. It's another trickle down. Meanwhile, you can be damn well sure that the Trump Crime Family will make a profit on whatever work gets done. The only question is which contractors will he try to stiff in our name?

There are a lot of problems in the way of constructing The Wall. Money isn't the only one. Sure, we can produce the billions of dollars it will take. America is the biggest license to print money the world has ever seen, but why even start when 1) the dwindling numbers of people coming across from Mexico make the cost and effort of building The Wall a highly inefficient way of spending our hard-earned tax dollars, and, 2) Washington lacks both the smarts and the honesty to be able to tell us what we would end up paying for this monument to stupidity. Much better things could be done for us all with the kind of money The Wall would cost. Already, Trump has estimated a cost of 10-12 Billion dollars, while fellow psychopathic loons, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are saying 12-15 Billion. You have to know that the next figure rolling off their forked tongues will be 24 Billion dollars and climbing. "Inexpensively" my ass. Go ahead. Name the last time a government project of any size came in...

As the Al Franken News Broke, His Friends in the Senate Had No Clue How to Respond The Intercept

Senators in the Capitol were stunned into rare speechlessness by the wave of Weinstein-inspired allegations finally crashing down on a member of the august body that dubs itself the most exclusive club in the world.

A radio news anchor said Thursday that Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken groped and forcibly kissed her during an overseas USO tour two years before Franken was elected to the Senate. The accuser, Leeann Tweeden, published her first-hand account to her stations website, 790 KABC in Los Angeles, including a damning photo.

Dozens of senators routinely eager to speak to the horde of reporters in the Capitol struggled to get their bearings, with a curiously high number of them suddenly getting urgent phone calls just as reporters approached. I just heard the allegations, Id like to hear it from Al, said Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, shortly after the news broke.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein similarly said she didnt know anything about it, adding Ive learned, dont comment before you know what youre commenting on.

The caution was bipartisan. Just barely saw it, so no reaction, shot Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona who recently denounced President Donald Trump while announcing his retirement.

I receive these kinds of questions every day about all kinds of things and I just I dont really have a lot I dont know enough, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said. I just, again, I just dont want to be weighing in on these things every day when I know nothing about them.

But when a reporter pointed out that he had weighed in on the Roy Moore scandal, Corker asked, How did I weigh in on Roy Moore?


Senate Democrats abruptly postponed a 12:30 p.m. press conference and Franken didnt appear for any of the days votes. He began with a short apology that said he remembered the encounter with Tweeden differently than she did, calling the photo an attempt at a bad joke. Not long after, he issued a much lengthier apology, this time requ...

I DON'T BELIEVE THE FOX POLL THAT SHOWS DOUG JONES WINNING No More Mister Nice Blog

This poll from Fox seems like good news:

[Doug] Jones is up by eight points over [Roy] Moore among Alabama likely voters, 50 percent vs. 42 percent, in a Fox News Poll conducted Monday through Wednesday evenings. His lead is outside the polls margin of sampling error (3.5 percentage points).
But I don't believe it, because I looked at the numbers.

First of all, the party breakdown in the poll is 48% Republican (40% solid GOP, 8% leaners) and 40% Democratic (33% solid, 9% leaners). That's in a state that Donald Trump won 62%-34%. A 2016 Gallup survey of party leanings doesn't have quite the skew of the election results, but it does show Alabama as 51.8% Republican, 34.8% Democratic -- a 17-point gap, as opposed to 8 in the Fox survey.

Even more suspicious: The poll asks about Barack Obama -- and he has a 52% favorable rating. Seriously? In Alabama? (Trump is only at 49%. By contrast, the latest Morning Consult state-by-state survey shows Trump with a 59% approval rating in Alabama.)

I'm not prepared to say that Fox is doing the GOP establishment's bidding by publishing a fake or skewed poll that shows Moore trailing. It's also possible that Jones supporters were more eager to respond to the survey, or that some Moore supporters are reluctant to acknowledge their leanings to a stranger.

In any case, I don't buy this. I still believe Moore will win.

Unions Push Local Businesses Out Of Portland Airport The Gateway Pundit

Portland International Airport (PDX) has long been known for its uniqueness. The Keep Portland Weird mantra certainly applies to the largest airport in the state, and one such hallmark is the plethora of local and regional businesses that populate the terminal and concourses. But that will soon go away if SEIU and other unions get their way.

A labor union called Unite Here represents airport workers across the country. Based out of New York, they are now bullying their way into Portland.

 

Willamette Week reports:

For the past two years, it has been urging port officials to dramatically reduce the number of concession contracts at PDX. That change could sweep out local beer and bagels, but make it easier for hundreds of workers to join their union.

FOX News Poll: Democrat Doug Jones Leads Judge Roy Moore By 8 Points The Gateway Pundit

After a week of non-stop media hits and allegations by several women of inappropriate conduct 38 years ago Republican Judge Roy Moore is now down by 8 points in the latest FOX News poll.

Despite the allegations it is still stunning that Alabama Republicans would vote for a committed anti-American Socialist to represent them in the US Senate.

Judge Moore has a lot of work to do between now and the election on December 12th.

 

The Gloria Allred tactics of personal destruction appear to be working for Democrats.

FCC Gives Sinclair Broadcast Group A Gift By Eliminating Key Media Ownership Rule Shadowproof

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) eliminated a rule that has existed for four decades, which prohibited corporations from owning newspapers and broadcast stations in the same market. The move will pave the way for further media consolidation and directly benefit companies like Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Craig Aaron, the president of Free Press, an advocacy group that fights for media reform, declared, Todays FCC vote should be a national scandal. Chairman [Ajit] Pai has warped FCC policies and process to accommodate the creation of a [Donald] Trump-friendly local-television conglomerate. The Sinclair Broadcast Groups unabashed goal is to monopolize local television markets and push its pro-Trump brand of propaganda over the public airwaves.

Free Press plans to challenge the change to media ownership rules in court.

According to the Associated Press, The Republican-dominated FCC approved the changes in a 3-2 vote along party lines. The two Democratic commissioners and other critics say that dumping these rules, by encouraging consolidation, hurts media diversity.

This act will pave the way for massive broadcast conglomerates to increasingly provide local viewers with nationalized cookie-cutter news and corporate propaganda thats produced elsewhere, said Democratic Senator Bill Nelson of Florida.

Mignon Clyburn, one of two Democratic commissioners, stated, This is really about helping large media companies grow even bigger. She said Republicans are focused on granting the industrys holiday wish list early rather than looking out for the public interest.

For an example of how this may immediately impact local media, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch noted this may allow Sinclair to avoid some divestitures in order to gain approval for a $3.9 billion acquisition of the Tribune Media Company. Sinclair would like to acquire Tribunes 42 TV stations in 33 markets as well as cable network WGN America, extending its reach to 72 percent of American households.

If it isnt required to divest any stations, Sinclair would end up owning KTVI (Channel 2) and KPLR (Channel 11) in St. Louis in addition to KDNL (Channel 30), which it already owns.

Closet Cases In High Places Are Terrible Role Models For Children-- They Teach Deception And Cowardice DownWithTyranny!


Do you read the Style Section of the NY Times? Me neither, but there was a piece yesterday about gossip columnist Liz Smith, who died Sunday. I didn't know she had died and didn't know she had lived her life in the closet. In fact, I probably wouldn't have even known she existed at all except that when I worked at Warner Bros, she would, every so often, be part of a marketing plan for an artist's record release-- mostly Madonna, but she was friends with our East Coast head of publicity and she always felt getting an artist or record mentioned by Liz Smith was a big coup. Yesterday the Times asserted that "the grande dame of New York's gossip pages" had come "under fire for keeping her attraction to women quiet. But for her generation, coming out can be especially fraught."

Oh, please... it's fraught if you make it fraught. When I figured out I was gay in 1973 I was living in Amsterdam. I flew home for a meeting with my family to tell them, not to ask their permission, just to let them know. They never thought of inviting me to anything again without including my boyfriend and never talked to me on the phone without asking how he was. In the corporate business world there was some residual homophobia-- but it didn't prevent me-- not for one second-- to rise to become president of a division of TimeWarner. Fraught, schmaught. It's fraught if you play the bullshit patriarchal game of showing fear or shame.

Today, as I was getting dressed I had an eye on the TV. Congresswomen Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Barbara Comstock (R-VA) were droning on-- filled with self-serving rage-- that there are serving members of Congress they know who approach women in the workplace in a way that is both sexual and comes from a place of power and entitlement. So... who the hell are they? Why keep...

Inside the Belly of New Yorks Restaurant Beast The Indypendent

Wheres Stephen? asked Ravi Sharma, the chef de cuisine at Paowalla, the recently established culinary powerhouse of SoHo, wiping sweat off his forehead with one hand while checking on the shishito pakoras with his other.

Stephen? Uhm, Stephen ran downstairs, I responded, shaking a little, worried I would somehow be blamed for Stephens sudden absence.

Ravi peered left and right across the cramped, steaming kitchen before solemnly looking me in the eyes. He must be in the freezer again, he said. Can you go get him? We have fire on two halibuts and a vindaloo. He needs to get started on them now.

Yes, chef. On my way.

I walked to the narrow staircase leading downstairs, where, as in many New York restaurants, the prep kitchen, dry food storage, fridge and freezer are located. Coming down! I yelled, so as to avoid any potential collision as I headed down the vertiginous steps. I turned the tight corner of the prep kitchen, walked two doors down and came to the entrance of the freezer.

There were a pair of black kitchen shoes with socks stuffed into them waiting on the outside. The door was slightly cracked open. I could hear Stephen incoherently mumbling to himself inside the freezer. Onion   fuck shit fire fuck tamarind, was all I could make out. I was genuinely worried for his mental health but didnt want to be the one to drag him out of there. Then again, I also didnt want to go back upstairs to tell the chef de cuisine that my mission to retrieve Stephen was unsuccessful.

Stephen was the most experienced line cook working that evening at Paowalla, which specializes in upscale Indian cuisine and is operated by the well-known chef Floyd Cardoz. Stephen was in charge of the grill, the oven, the stove the kitchens most important station, always manned by an accomplished and competent cook. He had been sweating buckets all night. Standing directly over the grill, hed looked like he was going to pass out at any moment. The air conditioner in the kitchen was broken and only a small fan kept the staff semi-cool in the 90-degree heat.

I built up some nerve and slowly opened the heavy freezer door. Stephen was in the far end of the walk-in with his back turned to me, head in hands. I quickly eased the door shut before he had the chance to notice and rushed back up the stairs where I came back face-to-face with Chef Ravi.

Stephen took a three-year hiatus from cooking. He fell in love with a sommelier who came from money, but something inexplicable drew him back to the kitchen.

Im sorry, chef, I said. Stephen seems really upset and since I just met him today I dont feel like I can be the one to get him back upstairs....

Animal Activists Who Freed Thousands Of Minks Charged With Terrorism | Care2 Causes Mining Awareness +

The AETA criminalizes First Amendment protected speech and advocacy, including protests, boycotts, picketing, and whistleblowing. Yet, while the law is aimed at stifling animal rights activism, its language is so broad and vague it could be used to prosecute labor activists who organize a successful boycott of Wal-Mart or union members who picket a university cafeteria, because both sell animal products.

Its perfectly fine to convict non-violent animal activists under a law intended for terrorists, at least, according to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld the convictions of two men who freed minks from a fur farm.

Tyler Lang and Kevin Johnson set out one night in August 2013 to do something many of us would view as a good deed or at least a kind one. They wanted to free thousands of minks held captive on a fur farm in Morris, Illinois. And they actually succeeded.

They released approximately 2,000 minks from their cages, destroyed the minks breeding cards required for sale to furriers poured caustic substances over two farm vehicles and spray-painted Liberation is Love on the wall of a barn. All told, they caused between $120,000 and $200,000 worth of

Woman Held At Private Immigrant Detention Center Alleges Sexual Assault By Guard Shadowproof

An incarcerated immigrant woman alleges guards sexually harassed and assaulted her and other women at a private immigrant detention center in Taylor, Texas, and retaliated against those who spoke out.

Twenty-three year old Laura Monterrosa is currently detained at the T. Don Hutto Residential Center, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility operated by CoreCivic, a major private prison company that was once known as Corrections Corporation of America. Hutto holds roughly 500 women, nearly all of whom were detained after fleeing violence in their home countries and seeking asylum in the United States.

In a letter published on November 6 by the immigrant rights group Grassroots Leadership, Monterrosa explained women are threatened with deportation or transfer to other detention centers for speaking out about their abuse. Due to the necessity that the women in this place have, they are forced to remain silent and every day, their and our rights are violated, she wrote.

Monterrosa experienced assaults and harassment by a female guard, who she said was telling me threatening words and forcing me to have unwanted relations with her, which I did not want. She felt she had to do what the guard wanted. She even told me when to go to recess, and when I was not allowed to talk with other residents, she always stared at me accusingly.

She began to tell me she liked me, and that whatever she liked belonged to her, and every time, her words became more absurd as she told me that she loved me and that she wasnt going to let anyone humiliate her, Monterrosa wrote [PDF]. She added, Given that I didnt want a relationship and she was only focused on me, she always demanded to know what I did with other women and why I was with them.

I got tired of all of this and asked her no more, because I was very scared, but she didnt care, Monterrosa shared. I told her that I was going to talk to the captain, but she laughed with a sarcastic laugh and said, do you think that he will believe you? Please, they never will.'

Monterrosa said the guard looked for or took advantage of every moment she could to touch my breasts or my legs. She knew where and when she did it. I dont remember dates because there are many. She worked in the recreation area and what she did with me she did with other residents.

The only thing that she says is that she is good friends with the boss. [Redacted] and Ms. [Redacted] are harassing the residents of this detention center. Enough is enough. We came looking for help not for them to harm us more.

Judicial Watch Discovers New Classified Hillary Clinton Emails Showing More Pay-To-Play The Gateway Pundit

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch discovered new classified emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showing more pay-to-play. 

Judicial Watch reports:

On January 6, 2012, Clinton can be seen expediting a citizenship request so the requestor can get a government job in policy or law enforcement:

I am told by Citizenship and Immigration (CIS) caseworkers that it may be at least another 8 months before they get to me, making the total time more than a year (they advertise 6 months total turnaround time).

Would you consider helping me by reaching out to DHS Secretary Napolitano or CIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas who reports to her on my behalf? The ask is to simply consider moving up my applications for review ASAP. My application is complete, straight forward and I have nothing to hide.

Clinton responds: Im copying Huma [Abedin] and asking her to see if we can help expedite this for you because we want you to be a citizen as soon as possible! Ive got my fingers crossed.  Happy New YearH

On August 4, 2009, Terrence Duffy, a donor to the Clinton Foundation and executive chairman of the derivatives giant CME Group, asks Clinton for her assistance in setting up meetings with Asian leaders.

Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services: Who Is Seema Verma? [News - AllGov]

Seema Verma, a long-time consultant in the health care industry, was named on November 29, 2016, as President-elect Donald Trumps choice to lead the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. She was sworn in on March 14, 2017.

 

Verma, the daughter of Indian immigrants, earned a bachelors degree in life sciences from the University of Maryland in 1993 and a masters in public health from Johns Hopkins University in 1996. Early in her career, she served as a director of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials in Washington, D.C., and as vice president of planning for the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County in Indianapolis.

 

In 2001, Verma founded SVC, a health-care consultancy. She started work in 2006 on the proposal that became the Healthy Indiana Plan, a healthcare plan endorsed by then-Governor Mitch Daniels (R) that put patients in high-deductible health plans and forced most to put at least some money in health savings accounts. Such plans act as barriers to obtaining and maintaining coverage for low-income groups, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. If youre talking about someone whose total income is $100 a month or $200 a month or is homeless, that is when it becomes particularly burdensome, MaryBeth Musumeci, associate director for the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, told The Washington Post.

 

Vermas work for Indiana proved lucrative. SVC received more than $3.5 million in contracts from the state. At the same time that Verma was advising Indiana, she worked for Hewlett-Packard, which was trying to win a contract from the state. Hewlett-Packard paid Verma, who had an office in the state government center, $1.2 million, but won more than $500 million in contractsincluding some involving Healthy Indianafrom the state, according to reporting by The Indianapolis Star. Indianas ethics laws dont forbid such a conflict of interest, according to The Star.

 

In 2014, the state increased Vermas payout by about $300,000, although neither her workload nor the length of the contract increased, The Star reported. Indiana officials provided only a vague explanationto cover claimsfor the raise. Vermas work for the state continued through the administration of Governor, and Vice President-elect, Mike Pence.

Nearly 4,000 US communities have higher rates of lead poisoning than Flint WORDVIRUS

By Jerry White
16 November 2017

In an updated study, Reuters news agency has identified 3,810 neighborhoods where recently recorded child lead poisoning rates are at least double those found in Flint, Michigan during the height of that citys water crisis in 2014 and 2015. In some 1,300 of these hotspot communities, the percentage of children six and under with elevated lead levels was at least four times the percentage in Flint during the peak of the crisis.

In pockets of Baltimore, Cleveland and Philadelphia, where lead poisoning has spanned generations, Reuters reported that the rate of elevated tests over the last decade was 50 percent or higher. An interactive map released with the study shows one census tract in Buffalo, New Yorka former steel and auto center that, like Flint, has suffered decades of deindustrializationwhere 68 percent of the children had high levels of lead.

Map of lead concentrations in the United States

The ingestion of any amount of the heavy metal, whether through tainted water, lead-based paint, contaminated soil or fumes and dust, can do irreparable harm to children. This includes impeding the development of the brain and nervous system, lowered IQ, memory loss, hearing and speech problems, and behavioral and attention-related problems. The toxin, which remains in the body and can be passed on for generations, is also responsible for a host of adult health problems, including decreased kidney function, high blood pressure, tremors and infertility.

In the year following the switchover of Flint to water from the polluted Flint River, which caused leaching from the citys antiquated lead pipe system, five percent of the children who had their blood tested showed lead levels in excess of five micrograms per deciliter. This is the threshold requiring immediate public health intervention, according to the US governments Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which acknowledges that there is no safe level of exposure to lead.

Reuters used data collected by the CDC based on neighborhood-level blood testing results for 34 states and the District of Columbia. As devastating as the results are, they do not provide a full picture. The CDC funds 35 state and local health departments for lead surveillance. Reporting is voluntary in the remaining states, many of which do not have staff to collect data. Despite the well-known public health hazard, the US government does not require reporting and does not oversee the systematic collection and analysis of data on lead poisoning.

Secret FBI Informant Breaks Silence on Uranium One Scandal Says Proof of Wrongdoing Exists The Gateway Pundit

For the first time, the FBI informant on the Clinton-Uranium One deal has broken his silence to the media. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his concerns about Russias activities in the United States, but declined to comment further, reports Reuters. 

Independent Journal Review reports:

The witness, identified by Reuters as William D. Campbell, worked as a lobbyist for a Russian firm.

Hillary Clinton claims no wrongdoing with Uranium One, though.

If they send a signal that were going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust our justice system, she said during an interview with Mother Jones.

Campbell, on the other hand, refuses to stay silent about the issue and plans to testify in front of Congress. But he doesnt just have his testimony, and he claims to have evidence.

I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it, he told Reuters.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Victoria Toensing, the lawyer representing the FBI informant says there is on-the-record quid pro quo surrounding the Uranium One scandal with Bill Clinton receiving a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian backed bank and the Clinton Foundation receiving millions of dollars from people involved on the deal.

Democrat Senator Al Franken is being accused of sexually harassing not one, but two women. Los Angeles anchor Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent when they were traveling on a USO tour in 2006.

We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.

Video: Joe Biden Forces Little Girl to Touch His Crotch The Gateway Pundit

Former Vice President Joe Biden was filmed forcing a young girl to touch his crotch during a ceremonial Senate swearing-in session at the Capitol on January 6, 2015. The video by C-SPAN shows the startled girl recoiling in shock at what she was forced to feel. One observer describes the act by Biden as a double-tap on his (manhood).

Vice President Joe Biden pulls the hand of a girl child to his crotch as the family of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) looks up for the Senate photographer at a ceremonial swearing-in at the Capitol, January 6, 2015.

The large extended family of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) was gathered around Biden for photographs. Biden as usual positioned a girl child with him. Biden calls for everyone to look up at the Senate photographer in the gallery. While everyone is looking up Biden grabs the girl, first by her left arm, then her left hand, with his right hand.

Biden then pulls the back of her hand toward his crotch, bending it backward to get her hand closer. The girl pulls back but Biden pulls back harder for a second touch, so forcefully that she stumbles. The girl recoils in shock, starts to reach over with her right hand to free herself as she looks over to see what Biden is doing to her. She bumps her face on his hand. She brings her free right hand to her mouth and then looks quizzically up at Biden. Biden doesnt look at her as he keeps holding on to her left hand after she pulled back again, but he does not bring it back to his crotch as the Senate photographer was starting to take the photos. Instead he pulled the girls hand to his thigh and rubbed it up and down on his leg.

Biden continues to grip the girls left hand as the family starts to mill about, only releasing after she reached over with her right hand to try again to free herself.

The incident takes place about 1:40 in the video and was over in seconds. It shows an experienced operator in action. (Viewer tip: A better understanding of Bidens moves can be seen by slowing the video down to half-speed in the You Tube settings for the video. Click the widget icon, select Speed and set at 0.5)

A CYNICAL BUT OBVIOUS POINT: IF AL FRANKEN DOESN'T RESIGN, ROY MOORE WILL DEFINITELY WIN No More Mister Nice Blog

I think Leeann Tweeden's story about her interaction with Al Franken on a 2006 USO tour is quite plausible, especially accompanied by that photo:

Franken had written a moment when his character comes at me for a kiss....

On the day of the show Franken and I were alone backstage going over our lines one last time. He said to me, We need to rehearse the kiss. I laughed and ignored him. Then he said it again. I said something like, Relax Al, this isnt SNL...we dont need to rehearse the kiss.

He continued to insist, and I was beginning to get uncomfortable.

He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said OK so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.

I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldnt be so nice about it the next time....

The tour wrapped and on Christmas Eve we began the 36-hour trip home to L.A. After 2 weeks of grueling travel and performing I was exhausted. When our C-17 cargo plane took off from Afghanistan I immediately fell asleep, even though I was still wearing my flak vest and Kevlar helmet.

It wasnt until I was back in the US and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one:

Al is a great senator, and I think his better self is a decent guy who respects women. But he's also this guy:
The Minnesota Democrat's first Senate campaign, in 2008, was damaged by revelations that he had made a joke in a Saturday Night Live writer's room meeting about raping the television journalist Lesley Stahl.

I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then when Lesley is passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her," Franken said, according to a 1995 article in New York magazine. "Or Thats why you never see Lesley until February. Or, When she passes out. I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.

In his 2017 book, Franken wrote that he "wasn't sorry" for the joke, which he called "stupid." "I was just doing my job," he said.

Judge Declares Mistrial in Dem Sen. Menendez Corruption Trial The Gateway Pundit

The corruption case against Robert Menendez ended in a mistrial after jurors were hopelessly deadlocked.

MISTRIAL AT MENENDEZ TRIAL, defense attorney tells reporters. Menendez emerges from judges chambers, wraps children in a big hug. Supporters of defendants are hugging and tearing up, tweeted State House reporter for The Record NJ.

CBS News reports:

The judge in the bribery trial for Sen. Bob Menendez has declared a mistrial, after jurors were unable to reach a verdict for more than a week.

Shortly before noon, the jurors sent a note to the judge saying they are deadlocked, as they determine the fate of the New Jersey Democrat accused of accepting giftsfrom wealthy donor Salomon Melgen in exchange for political influence. Menendez defense lawyer on Thursday asked Judge William Walls to declare a mistrial in the case, and an attorney for co-defendant Melgen asked the judge to poll the jury individually to confirm the deadlock. Federal prosecutors asked Walls to give the jury more time to deliberate and to give them partial verdict instructions, but Walls said he wouldnt do that.

Democrat Al Franken Jokes About Gay Mans Murder: I Dont Like Homosexuals Was Glad When Pudding Homosexual Got Killed The Gateway Pundit

Al Franken: I just dont like homosexuals Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.

Democrat Al Franken does not just have a history of abusing women and cracking baby rape jokes.

Back in 1976 Al Franken joked about the murder of a gay man in Philadelphia.

This interview was published in the Harvard Crimson in 1976.

Democrat Al Franken laughed about a homosexual being killed:

He recalled writing a skit called Seamen on Broadway that was rejected from the Hasty Pudding show by some preppie so they could take some other preppies skit. Franken started to smile again, but his tone was serious, too serious. Its not preppies, cause Im a preppie myself. I just dont like homosexuals. If you ask me, theyre all homosexuals in the Pudding. Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia. The smile became so broad it pushed his eyes shut. He couldnt stand it any longer. Put that in, put that in, Franken laughed, leaning over the desk. Id love to see that in The Crimson.

For more context in 2005 Mike Adams at Frontpage discussed the murder Franken thought was so funny.

For those who dont get this fair mean joke, Franken is attacking Harvards Hasty Pudding Club, which is a humorous dramatic society one that never invited Franken to join while he was at Harvard. So, naturally, when you are snubbed by an organization, it is fair to rejoice when one of its members is murdered. This is...

NOT FUNNY: Al Franken Once Joked About Al-Qaeda Assassinating President Bush (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

In 2004, Al Franken told the sign-language interpreter working at the Republican convention that he should have communicated to Al-Qaeda how to sneak into the White House to assassinate President George Bush.

FRANKEN: You what would have been a really funny, stupid thing to do? Would have been, like, Al-Qaeda friends of mine, Ive scoped out the place, the way to get the President is to come through the Kitchen, which is downstairs.

After finishing his joke, Franken lets out a huge laughHA-HA!

Hot Airs Ed Morrissey had this to say about the tasteless joke back in 2008:

I can already hear the objections. Franken is a satirist! He was joking! Hes paid to make people laugh! Er, yeah but then Franken was also a political commentator, and now he wants to serve in the US Senate, so his judgment in this is fair game. If hes such a hater that the notion of AQ assassinating George Bush is funny, that shows just how far outside the mainstream Franken is, and how poor his judgment can be.

Does Franken really believe that joking about presidential assassinations is in good taste, ever? Because in a Barack Obama administration, I doubt that Frankens allies will find it funny. Neither will I, or most everyone I know.

Alabama Female Faith Leaders to Hold Press Conference Friday in Support of Judge Roy Moore The Gateway Pundit

A group of Christian women from Alabama will hold a press conference Friday at 10:30 AM in support of Judge Roy Moore.

Judge Moore has been accused of sexual assault and sexual advances on teenage girls by the liberal media and coastal elites in the past week.
Several of the allegations have already been disproven.

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

 WHAT:  Women for Moore Press Conference

 WHEN:  Friday, Nov. 17th at 10:30am

WHERE: Alabama State Capitol Steps, 600 Dexter Ave, Montgomery, AL

WHY:  Judge Roy Moore has faithfully served in public office for forty years.  He ran for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court twice and won and he ran for Governor in 2010.  Yet, not once, during all that time were there any allegations of sexual misconduct.  During the fight over the removal of the Ten Commandments monument in 2003 and again last year when he was put through the fire with the Judicial Inquiry Commission there were no allegations of sexual impropriety.  But now, one month before the election, a volunteer of his opponent, Doug Jones, who also worked as an interpreter for Democrat Joe Biden comes forward.  The second accuser is also looking very suspicious.  It appears that the evidence that she has against Moore has been fabricated.  We know Judge Moore and we arent buying it.  The Judge has repeatedly denied these allegations and we stand with him.  We know his character and have called this press conference to show the our state and the nation that we will not be bullied by special interests nor political hacks in Alabama or in Washington DC.

The women who will be speaking have endorsed him and will attest to his good character.  Janet Porter from Faith2Action will be in attendance as well as a few surprise guests.  Please join us and hear what these women have to say....

This College Is Charging Students With Trespassing For Holding a Peaceful, On-Campus Protest The Intercept

An upstate New York university has taken its free-speech-zone policy, which regulates where students can hold protests, further than most, charging students who last month organized a protest with trespassing.

The conflict between students and administrators at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute stems from a two-year debate over who should control the student union. For more than 125 years, the student union, which helps administer student funds to campus organizations and promote a more prosperous student life, has been operated by the students themselves.

In fact, it is, according to the university, one of the few private school student unions in the country that is entirely student-run.

Thats why when RPI President Shirley Ann Jackson first made moves two years ago to try to assert university control over the union, many on campus were opposed. Jackson has argued that she should have final say over who is hired as the unions director, a position that has been vacant since the university fired the organizations previous director in December 2015. The board of trustees agrees with the president, arguing that the student union which now controls a bookstore, fitness facilities, and recreational spaces has grown tremendously in the past century and now needs more direct university control.

Last month, a group of outraged students opposed to increased university influence planned a demonstration during Homecoming Week, a time during which alumni, donors, and other bigwigs come to campus for events to promote the school.

But the university responded by outright banning protests during homecoming and turning down a formal request to stage a protest. It then erected a literal fence around parts of campus, preventing students from approaching a building where the president would be hosting university donors for an event. University staff also tore down posters promoting a planned protest.

More than 100 students, faculty, and alumni staged a demonstration about changes to the student union anyway. During the October 13 protest, some protesters pierced the makeshift fence and crossed into the no-go zone.

Dan Seel, a student in a joint bachelors and masters program in science and technology studies, has been involved in the fight over the student union since it began. He attended the...

Footage of Al Franken Making BABY RAPE Joke Resurfaces Amid Sexual Assault Allegations (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Amid sexual harassment allegations made by model and actress Leeann Tweeden against Al Franken, footage of the Democrat Senator cracking a vile baby rape joke at Rob Reiners Comedy Central Roast in 2000 has resurfaced. 

Video credit: GotNews

SOTT reports:

A 2000 Comedy Central Roast of director Rob Reiner featured Franken making baby rape jokes about Reiner. On a typical night, Carl [Reiner] would slip into Robs bed, roll him over, swab him down and say something like, Im thinking about hiring Morey Amsterdam to play Buddy Sorrell, what do you think?' Franken said as Reiner blurted out, Oh, Jesus.

Well, the success of The Dick Van Dyke Show changed things dramatically, Carl started inviting many of his famous friends to fuck his son, Franken continued. That list includes some of the greats in comedy: Paul Lynde, Dom DeLuise, Rip Taylor, Danny Kaye, Charles Nelson Reilly and Rock Hudson whom, I frankly dont think is that funny.

Thank you for doing so much to make sure another kid doesnt end up like you, Franken snarked.

Conservative author Ann Coulter made note of the joke in a tweet back in February

At Rob Reiner roast in 2000, Al Franken did an extended comedy bit @ Reiner anally raping his infant children. He is currently a US senator, Coulter tweeted.

Model and Sports Commentator Accuses Creepy Democrat Senator Al Franken of Sexual Assault The Gateway Pundit


How gross.

Model and actress Leeann Tweeden accused Democrat Senator Al Franken of sexual assault (pictured above Franken groping Tweeden while she is asleep).

Tweeden made the allegations on her radio show this week.

Tweeden said Franken kissed and groped her without her consent when they were traveling on a USO tour in 2006.

KABC reported:

In December of 2006, I embarked on my ninth USO Tour to entertain our troops, my eighth to the Middle East since the 9/11 attacks. My father served in Vietnam and my then-boyfriend (and now husband, Chris) is a pilot in the Air Force, so bringing a little piece of home to servicemembers stationed far away from their families was both my passion and my privilege.

Also on the trip were country music artists Darryl Worley, Mark Wills, Keni Thomas, and some cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys. The headliner was comedian and now-senator, Al Franken.

Franken had written some skits for the show and brought props and costumes to go along with them. Like many USO shows before and since, the skits were full of sexual innuendo geared toward a young, male audience.

As a TV host and sports broadcaster, as well as a model familiar to the audience from the covers of FHM, Maxim and Playboy, I was only expecting to emcee and introduce the acts, but Franken said he had written a part for me that he thought would be funny, and I agreed to play along.

When I saw the script, Franken had written a moment when his character comes at me for a kiss. I suspected what he was after, but I figured I could turn my head at the last minute, or put my hand over his mouth, to get more laughs from the crowd.

On the day of the show Franken and I were alone backstage going over our lines one last time. He said to me, We need to rehearse the kiss. I laughed and ignored him. Then he said it again. I said something like, Relax Al, this isnt SNLwe dont need to rehearse the kiss.

Like Mother, Like Daughter Gloria Allred and Daughter Lisa Bloom Push Fake Sex Scandals Against Conservatives While Defending Real Sex Predators Like Harvey Weinstein The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Far left California attorney Gloria Allred is famous for promoting unconfirmed sex abuse accusations against prominent Republican politicians days before elections.

Her daughter Lisa Bloom is also famous for representing far left sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein and gross and shocking comedians like Kathy Griffin.

Mama attacks conservatives with fake sex scandals while her daughter attacks abused women who stand up to liberal sex monsters! 

What a family!

This week Gloria Allred again promoted herself by standing with a woman, Beverly Nelson, who accused Alabama Judge Roy Moore of sexually abusing her years ago in Alabama.  Nelson, 56, held a press conference in New York with embattled attorney Gloria Allred on Monday, alleging Judge Roy Moore sexually harassed her when she was 16 years old.

According to Beverly Young Nelsons account reported by the Washington Examiner, Moore offered to drive her home from work one night but instead parked in a dark, deserted part of a parking lot behind the restaurant where she worked. Nelson said Moore groped her and began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head onto his crotch.

The supposed event has been rebutted by numerous individuals based on numerous facts.  Nelsons own son released a video stating that  he felt his step mother was lying.  A yearbook provided by Nelson at the press conference appears to have a fraudulent copy of Judge Moores signature and as a result Moores attorn...

WHAT THEY WANT IS GOOD-BAD BUT NOT EVIL No More Mister Nice Blog

The Washington Post's James Hohmann reports that President Trump got bad marks from women yesterday in a North Carolina focus group conducted by pollster Peter Hart.

Republican women who voted for President Trump in North Carolina said during a focus group Wednesday night that they are embarrassed by and exasperated with him.

-- Annie Anthony, 56, voted for Trump last year because she opposes abortion and did not like how Hillary Clinton handled Benghazi. Now she fears that Trump is marching us toward war with North Korea. She describes the first 10 months of his presidency as chaotic, stressful and an uphill battle.

While I thought his ideas appealed to me, since hes been in there hes embarrassed me by his behavior, said Anthony, a divorced college graduate who runs a local nonprofit volunteer center and drives for Uber to make ends meet. He behaves so unpresidential. The words he uses. The tweeting.... I cant imagine how they let him build a country club let alone be in one. Because adults dont behave that way ...
More:
Emily Bell, a 32-year-old occupational therapist who voted for Trump, described him as rude and stressful. I feel like he told people that he had all these big ideas and big plans, and it just seems to kind of roll to something else. Its like nothing is ever accomplished, said Bell, who is married and has a postgraduate degree....

-- Melissa Hight, a 62-year-old married retiree who has a postgraduate degree and voted for Trump, used the word antagonistic to describe him. I had high hopes, but he just goes about things in a way that gets everybodys back up against the wall, she lamented. He doesnt facilitate working together. He comes out with these grandiose ideas, and theres no follow through. Its a lot of talk. ... He hasnt acted presidential at all...."
My first question is: What did you expect? As president he's acting exactly the way he acted as a candidate. But they all overlooked that. They focused on the big promises and ignored the infantile behavior. Or they processed the fact that he was infantile but assumed -- or hoped -- that he'd discipline himself in office.

These people just don't like the status quo, so they're willing to roll the dice on someone who says what they want to hear, and they'll ignore evidence that they're voting for someone who's not fit to be in office. A man in the focus group says of Trump:
Hes kind of a loose cannon I dont like that but what weve had for years and years not just Obama, but leading up to that they werent getting the job done in terms of leading the country. So hes still better than the alternative of a career politician....

The Night I Grew a Conscience Matt Forney

This is a guest post by Kid Strangelove. Kid originally published this article at his own blog on October 18, 2010, but he deleted the site a while ago so he could focus on other projects. He asked me if Id be willing to re-post some of his articles on my blog and I said yes.

After hanging out with some friends and experiencing another awesome Friday in NYC, my plan was just to take it easy on Saturday. I visited my family, read a book, relaxed, saw a movie, and was getting ready to call it an early night until a female friend of mine texted me and said that she wanted to grab a few drinks, but keep it low-key.

Heres some background on my friend: she lived fairly close to me, we went to middle school together and reconnected earlier this year, and shes just an all-around awesome girl that I can talk to about anything. I have never considered her a potential hookup (unless of course you consider the times when youre really drunk and random things race through your head, and Im sure she felt the same way).

The night was going well, and then, like all gatherings of friends, the talk turned to sex and relationships. She said to me:

I love you as a friend, but I hate you as a man at the same time. The way you treat girls, its bad, but whats worse is that it works! Your bullshit is true. You know it. I know it. Every girl knows it. I just want to find a guy that doesnt act this way, but at the same time they do because it works and its the truth. Im 26 years old, Im past my hookup stage, I just want something real, but it seems impossible.

I replied:

See, thats the problem. Youre past the hookup stage. Im just discovering it. In high school, college, and for some time after that, I was a hopeless romantic, and that got me absolutely nowhere. But now I see people as people, with their needs, wants, and desires, and I absolutely love my life. And thats the story with many men: they are really only discovering their sexual side now, and its an awesome feeling.

She soon went to the bathroom, and when she returned she was surprised that I wasnt hitting on the girls next to us. Of course, I immediately switched to mack mode and within a few minutes got one of the girls sitting there to enthusiastically give me her number while my friend talked to her friend. Girls make the best wings.

I saw it in her eyes. Youll be fucking her in a week or two, dammit, she said afterwards.

We soon went to another bar, which turned out to be cougar headquarters, and then I noticed that I was by far one of the sexiest people there. Now, I am by no means a hot dude by any standard definition: while I do work out extensively, I still have a bel...

Good Candidates Don't Accept DCCC Endorsements In Primaries DownWithTyranny!

Worth 10 DCCC Red to Blue Endorsements

The DCCC claims to be neutral in primaries but always puts its fingers on the scale for corrupt conservatives from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party, Blue Dogs and New Dems, never for progressives. The DCCC favors wealthy self-funders and "ex"-Republicans. They recruit them and back them and help them disadvantage candidates from working class backgrounds. Is the DCCC anti-union? They probably don't even realize it, but, of course they are. Let's take a look at a DCCC press release masquerading as reporting in yesterday's Roll Call: DCCC Names First 11 Candidates In 'Red To Blue' Program."
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is naming 11 candidates Wednesday to the first round of its Red to Blue program, which highlights strong Democratic recruits.

The list of 11 candidates, obtained first by Roll Call, includes recruits running in 10 competitive GOP-held seats and in one open seat Democrats are hoping to keep blue.

Washington Rep. Denny Heck, the chair of recruitment, and Massachusetts Rep. Katherine Clark, the vice chair of recruitment, will co-chair this cycle's Red to Blue program.

Being named to Red to Blue opens doors for candidates who can tout their inclusion on the list to donors. Candidates also benefit from guidance and staff resources from the DCCC, which has been in contact with all Democratic House candidates...

Joe Biden Gives Creepy Answer When Asked What Trump Has Done Well (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

Joe Biden was recently on Good Morning America and was asked what Trump has done well. Naturally, he had a somewhat creepy response. After all, hes Joe Biden.

The Hill reported:

Biden on what Trump is doing well: I think he married very well

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday struggled to come up with a specific example of something President Trump has done well since taking office, joking that he married very well.

I think theres a number of things hes doing well. But even the things hes doing well, its how he does them, Biden said on NBCs Today.

Its more the tone of this administration that bothers me, he said.

With all due respect, you havent come up with one thing you think hes doing well, host Matt Lauer interjected.

Well, I think he married very well, Biden joked.

I cant think of something right now, he continued. But Im not being a wiseguy. Theres a lot of the country thats still functioning.

Watch the video:

Of course, the liberal media never calls out Joe Biden for his creepiness.
It must be nice to be a Democrat.

Crooked Hillary Lashes Out at Trump Over Possibility of Uranium One Special Counsel (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Crooked Hillary Clinton is angry over the possibility of a special counsel investigating her role in the Uranium One scandal. 

Ol Crooked sat down with Mother Jones for an exclusive interview looking sick and scared as she lashed out at the Trump administration, calling the possible investigation an abuse of power.

POLITICO reports:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has slammed President Donald Trump for suggesting that a special prosecutor investigate her role in the Uranium One deal, a current cause clbre among conservative commentators and some House Republican lawmakers.

Taking myself out of it, this is such an abuse of power and it goes right at the rule of law, Clinton told Mother Jones in an interview posted Wednesday night. As secretary of state, I went around the world bragging about Americas rule of law. If they send a signal that we are going to be like some dictatorship, some authoritarian regime where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract that we have that we can trust our justice system.

Classic projection from Hillary. She perfectly described the Mueller investigation. The Mueller witch hunt is something you would see under Stalins rule.

Hillary paid millions of dollars for a Russian dossier full of lies which was used to fraudulently unmask and investigate her political opponent.

For Hillary to claim that a special counsel investigating the Uranium One scandal would send a signal to the world that we are a dictatorship is laughable at best. In fact its quite the opposite.

If Hillary Clinton isnt properly investigated and brought to justice then that shows the world, and most importantly Americans that we are no different than corrupt 3rd world countries.

Working-Class Women Say #MeToo The Indypendent

In the days and weeks since evidence of Harvey Weinsteins decades-long pattern of sexual abuse surfaced, millions of women, trans and gender nonconforming people, even men around the world have exposed the scale of sexual violence in our society, telling their own stories using the hashtag #MeToo.

A slew of men in positions of power from British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon to actor Kevin Spacey have been accused of sexual misconduct and many of them are finally facing real consequences. #MeToo set off a profound moment of collective bravery, a moment that would have been impossible without the broad sense of solidarity and support that welcomed people coming forward.

I still vividly remember feeling the power of such support during a SlutWalk protest in 2012, as we rallied at Praa Roosevelt in So Paulo, Brazil. We were all gathered in an enormous circle. At one moment, a protester came up to one of the women leading the rally with the megaphone and whispered in her ear. The woman with the megaphone announced that there was a man in the back she pointed, we all pointed in a gray shirt, blue cap and sunglasses, who was touching the women without their consent. Hundreds of us chanted at him to get out, our voices getting louder, faster, angrier. He fled. It was the first time I cried about my rape.

Yet, despite the mass outpouring of #MeToo stories, we know that there are millions of other people who cant or choose not to speak out in this particular way. In the overwhelming majority of cases in which survivors come forward, they are dismissed, their names are dragged through the mud, institutions try to cover up the wrongdoing or retaliate against them. Blamed and forced to keep quiet, theyre shown that their experiences are taken for granted and should simply be assumed to be part of what it means to be a woman in society, rather than grueling experiences of oppression that completely reshape peoples lives.

For decades, women have been coming forward about their experiences of being abused, harassed, assaulted and raped by renowned men. The difference now is that they are being believed. The confidence that the #MeToo welcoming has given survivors goes beyond the inner circles of the rich and famous.

The devaluation of women goes all the way to and comes all the way from the top where an admitted rapist sits in the White House.

In the lead-up to a Take Back the Workplace march that stormed the streets of Hollywood on Nov. 12, the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, an organization made up of female farmworkers and women who come from farmworker families, released a moving letter of solidarity with the women in Hollywood who have come forward in the wake of the Weinstein scandal.

Even though we work in very different environments, we share a common experience of being preyed upon...

Reforma da Previdncia mira no passado e pode ficar obsoleta antes de vigorar plenamente The Intercept

A reforma da Previdncia nasceu como um monstrengo devorador de velhinhos, mas, ao que tudo indica, vai se tornar um ajuste sutil, se tanto, no setor de seguridade social. O problema, segundo especialistas ouvidos por The Intercept Brasil, que h grandes chances de que, quando as mudanas comearem a valer plenamente, elas tenham um impacto pouco significante.

Antes de irmos em frente, preciso dizer que no h grandes dvidas quanto necessidade de uma reforma da Previdncia. A populao brasileira est envelhecendo extremamente rpido. Hoje, para cada brasileiro com mais de 65 anos, existem nove em idade produtiva. J em 2060, segundo especialistas, teremos duas pessoas na labuta para cada aposentado.

Alm disso, pouca gente se lembra, mas o sistema pblico de aposentadorias tem, ou deveria ter, uma funo social, de distribuio de renda e de combate desigualdade. A ideia, basicamente, fazer com que aqueles ainda em condio de trabalhar ajudem a sustentar os idosos.

S que esse sistema, do jeito que hoje, no funciona bem, principalmente por causa da aposentadoria por tempo de contribuio. Hoje, os brasileiros em geral podem receber o benefcio por dois caminhos. No primeiro, para se aposentar por idade, precisam ter no mnimo 60 anos, no caso das mulheres, ou 65 anos, no caso dos homens. Tambm precisam ter contribudo por pelo menos 15 anos. O segundo caminho por tempo de contribuio. Basta ter contribudo por 30 anos, para mulheres, e 35 anos para homens, para garantir a aposentadoria.

Sistema desigual

Isso permite que um sujeito que comea a trabalhar aos 20 anos se aposente aos 55. Esse modelo, segundo o coordenador de Previdncia do Instituto de Pesquisa Econmica Aplicada (Ipea), Rogrio Nagamine, favorece aqueles que tm condies de ficar trs dcadas e meia sem perder o emprego, sem ter de recorrer a bicos e sem manter outra funo informal para completar a re...

Midnight Meme Of The Day! DownWithTyranny!


-by Noah

I suppose that some may say that today's meme is, maybe, a bit harsh, or at least crass. So what. The other night, I was watching Bill Maher's show. He only had two panelists this time. Usually, there are three and at least one is of the Republican variety. Sometimes, that republican is able to pass as a somewhat sane or decent person, almost. Notice that I didn't use the word 'individual'. Republicans tend to not be individuals in my book. They march to their hateful, paranoid, greedy, holier-than-thou creed in lock step. Permutations in republicans are rare, very rare. If you don't like that I lump all Republicans together, you can bite me. We all go by our personal experiences and I go by my 60+ years of personal experience.

On this particular night, Maher's panelists were MSNBC's Chris Matthews and film maker Michael Moore. Maher then brought out comedian Sarah Silverman. In the interest of full disclosure, I am a fan of both Moore and Silverman. As for Chris Matthews, I'm sure I'd like his new book on Bobby Kennedy and I respect the experience he brings to the table but he's too old-fartish and guilty of narrow establishment thinking for me. Also, his contempt for progressives is obvious. My first impression of Matthews was when I saw him do an interview with then House Speaker Newt Gingrich back in the 1990s. There are softball questions and there are nerfball questions. Matthews was practically blowing him. How's that for an image you can't unsee?

During the course of Maher's show, the conversation turned to the idea of civility when dealing with republicans. That got my hairs up immediately. Let me put it this way: Civility is what got us to the point where we are today. The media was far, far to civil in its treatment of Trump and now look where we are. We have a president who is, by any sane definition, a clear and present danger to our countr...

An Honest American: Sean Hannity Will Reserve Judgement on Roy Moore Challenges Far Left Hack Gloria Allred to Release Yearbook The Gateway Pundit

On Tuesday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity called on Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to explain inconsistencies in his story surrounding allegations of sexual harrassment within 24 hours or drop out of the race.

In an attempt to quell Hannitys concerns, Judge Moore tweeted a powerful open letter to the Fox News host Wednesday evening.

** Josh Caplan reported this earlier at The Gateway Pundit.

The powerful open letter reads:

Dear Sean:

I am suffering the same treatment other Republicans have had to endure.

A month prior to the general election for U.S. Senate in Alabama, I have been attacked by the Washington Post and other liberal media in a desperate attempt to smear my character and defeat my campaign.

Over the last 40 years I have held several public offices, including Deputy District Attorney, Circuit Judge, and Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. In addition to running five statewide and three county campaigns for public office, I have been involved in two major controversies that attracted national attention, one about the Ten Commandments and the other the sanctity of marriage.

The Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission, Court of the Judiciary, and Attorney General have investigated, scrutinized, examined, and vetted me, not to mention every opposing candidate against whom I have run.

I have been married for almost 33 years to my wife Kayla. We have four children and five granddaughters.

You Think All Those Republicans Who Are Just Fine With Pedophile Roy Moore Are Going To Care What Mueller Finds About Putin-Gate? DownWithTyranny!


This Putin-Gate scandal is getting really complicated and harder to follow. Thank Heavens for Team Maddow! Last night's biggest piece of the puzzle wire transfers amounting to at least $380,000 from a Putin-controlled bank to Putin spymasters in DC (Sergei Kislyak at the Russian embassy) and other embassies earmarked for the "election campaign of 2016." Investigative journalist Jason Leopold, writing for BuzzFeed, reported that the FBI is scrutinizing more than 60 money transfers. In fact, almost all of them contained a memo line referencing the financing of the 2016 election. But a far bigger puzzle piece-- at least I think it's bigger-- is the secret correspondence between Fredo Trump and Russian Intelligence's WikiLeaks arm. Julia Ioffe's blockbuster report is actually shocking.
Just before the stroke of midnight on September 20, 2016, at the height of last years presidential election, the WikiLeaks Twitter account sent a private direct message to Donald Trump Jr., the Republican nominees oldest son and campaign surrogate. A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch, WikiLeaks wrote. The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is putintrump. See About for who is behind it. Any comments? (The site, which has since become a joint project with Mother Jones, was founded by Rob Glaser, a tech entrepreneur, and was funded by Progress for USA Political Action Committee.)

The next morning, about 12 hours later, Trump Jr. responded to WikiLeaks. Off the record I dont know who that is, but Ill ask around, he wrote on September 21, 2016. Thanks.

HELL FREEZES OVER=> Chelsea Handler Tells Juanita Broaddrick She Believes Bill Clinton Raped Her The Gateway Pundit

Hillary Chronicles LewRockwell

The Department of Justice will soon commence an investigation to determine whether there should be an investigation (you read that nonsense correctly) of a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation and a company called Uranium One. It appears that FBI decisions made during the time that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for espionage will also be investigated to see whether there should be an investigation to determine whether she was properly investigated. (Again, you read that nonsense correctly.)

Only the government can relate nonsense with a straight face. Here is the back story.

When President Donald Trump fired FBI Director Jim Comey last spring, the attorney generals stated purpose for recommending the firing was Comeys dropping the ball in the investigation of Clintons email when she was secretary of state. After a year of investigating her use of her own computer servers to transmit and store classified materials instead of using a government server to do so and notwithstanding a mountain of evidence of her grossly negligent exposure of secret and top-secret materials, which constitutes the crime of espionage the FBI director decided that because no reasonable prosecutor would take the case, it should be dropped. Weeks later, the DOJ ratified Comeys decision.

Time to buy old US gold coins

At the same time that Clinton was failing to safeguard state secrets, she was granting official State Department favors to donors to her familys charitable foundation. There are dozens of examples of this so-called pay to play, the most egregious of which is the Uranium One case. This involved a Canadian businessman and friend of former President Bill Clintons, Frank Giustra, who bundled donations from various sources that totaled $148 million, all of which Giustra gave to the Clinton Foundation.

At the same time that Giustra made this extraordinary donation, he was representing a client that needed federal permission to purchase a 51 percent stake in Uranium One, which then controlled about 20 percent of Americas licensed uranium mining capacity. Secretary Clinton freely gave Giustras client the State Departments approval, and it soon acquired the remaining approvals to make the purchase. Giustras client is a Russian corporation controlled by the Kremlin.

When the FBI got wind of the Giustra donation and Secretary Clintons approval and the Kremlin involvement, it commenced an investigation of whether Clinton had been bribed. At some point during former President Barack Obamas second term, that investigation was terminated. We do not know whether the investigating FBI agents learned that the Clinton Foundation was not even registered as a charity by the states in which it was doing business or authorized...

Reformation and State LewRockwell

Luther and His Progeny: 500 Years of Protestantism and Its Consequences for Church, State, and Society, edited by John C. Rao.

NB (and it will be really tough in this post): in my review of this book, I am presenting the case as Catholics see it; I say nothing of my views on theology.  My intent is not to get into the theology, but to examine the impact of the Reformation on society and what this meant (and means) for the growth of the state.

The period in Europe, before the Reformation, offers what I view as the longest-lasting and closest example of a decentralized, libertarian order we have seen in the westever.  What has come since has not come close, certainly in terms of longevity no matter what one believes about the value of the Renaissance, Enlightenment, or Liberalism.  For this, the period is worth examining for anyone interested in libertarianism in this world.

The doctrine of total corruption constitutes the view that, subsequent to the fall of the first couple, man is not merely wounded by sin, but utterly ruined by it.

Total determinism comprises the view that God arbitrarily decides who shall be saved and who shall not before they are created.

So Sebastian Morello describes the Reformation doctrine.

Time to buy old US gold coins

This dual doctrine reduces man to a brute, and two forms of government follow from its anthropology.  One is that of draconian leaders, and the other that of liberal oligarchy which maintains that they are the peoples choice.

One is Hobbes, the other is Jefferson.

People are incapable of developing virtue therefore they abandon the life of virtue.  Therefore, to govern man, brute force was necessary.  For this role, the princes gladly took charge.  The princes realized that Luther offered a way to separate from the dual governance authority provided by the Church in Rome, and therefore consolidate government in their lands under one head their own.

Citing Henry Sires synopsis:

[Thomas] More knew that despite the Protestants claim to speak for the ordinary layman, their revolt was not a popular one.  There was no place in Europe where the peasantry, by far the largest part of the population, received the Reformation gladly, let alone instigated its entry.

It was, instead, an elitist revolution.  Sire continues:

Reformation was the work of kin...

The Donald Trump Jr. Pile on LewRockwell

There is nothing illegal or improper with someone having contact with Julian Assange or WikiLeaks. Julian Assange is not a Russian asset and WikiLeaks is not a Russian propaganda organization. I understand that the US intelligence agencies insist otherwise but they are utterly unable to prove it. Its true in their minds because they wanted to be.

Contact between Donald Trump,jr.. and Julian Assange certainly does not constitute collusion with the Russians!

In fact Assange is a journalist publishing information given to him by sources just as they do at the Washington Post and the New York Times but Wikileaks record for accuracy and authenticity is far better.

Time to buy old US gold coins

Neither Donald Trump Jr. or Alexander Nix of Cambridge Analytica did anything inappropriate. Having tried so hard to drive the phony Russian collusion narrative to distract from their own Russian profiteering (Uranium One, Gazprom, Joule) they make casual contact with a first-rate Journalist muckraker treason.

No More Electric Gravy? LewRockwell

There must be a rube in the House.

recent Republican who does not understand how the game is played much less why it is being played the way it is played. He and perhaps some of his fellows not-yet-initiated publicly wondered why the federal government is underwriting the sale of luxury-performance cars that happen to be electric.

It is a curious thing.

They suggested rescinding the $7,500 tax inducement which the government has been using to help electric car manufacturers like Tesla, which sell electric cars that start around $40,000 and which emphasize not economy but performance and style and technology.

Some might look upon the robbing of Peter who probably drives an eight-year-old Camry in need of front end work so that Paul can drive a brand-new, $40,000 electric luxury-performance car as somewhat obnoxious.

But not everyone.

Time to buy old US gold coins

There is, for example, Genevieve Cullen who is the head shill for the electric luxury-performance car lobby, styled the Electric Drive Transportation Association. She practically squealed the collective indignation of her clients, who are alarmed very much by the prospect of having to make an honest dollar:

She and they . . .continue to believe that a reformed tax code should include a robust set of incentives to support the electrification of transportation, Cullen wrote to House Republican Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, who is the chair of the Ways and Means Committee which is the government gaggle which weighs how to dispose of our means.

But Cullen is not being straight with Brady or with the means providers (who havent got much choice about that).

The issue on the table is not whether Uncle should support the electrification of transportation, as she shysterishly misdirects. It is whether wealth transfers from working people to affluent people ought to be continued.

Elon Musk, for instance, is a billionaire. The idea that anyone who files a W2 ought to be made to fund his operations is haltingly offensive.

The people who buy the electric cars he makes when he does actually make them are the same people who buy BMWs and other luxury-performance cars with prices that start around twice the price of an ordinary IC-engined economy car.

Which is why the electric cars Tesla sells do not emphasize economy. That would be as obviously absurd as suggesting a diet of potato chips and grape soda sweetened with fructose for the obese. The difference here, however, is that the government is not paying obese people to eat...

A New History of the World LewRockwell

The Silk Roads is a wonderful invigorating work of history. It is directed to the general reader rather than the specialist. I found it be absolutely riveting.

The essence of the book is that, in the West, our history is viewed through a very narrow lense. Schools teach its students of the Roman Empire, the subsequent Dark Ages, the Norman conquest in 1066, Henry VIII and the Tudors, the American War of Independence, the Industrial Revolution and the First and Second World Wars. The vast bulk of a map of the world from western Europe to China is passed over very quickly. With The Silk Roads, Peter Frankopan has attempted to redress this imbalance.

As the author states:

Time to buy old US gold coins

For centuries before the early modern era, the intellectual centres of excellence of the world, the Oxfords ad Cambridges, the Harvards and Yales, were not located in Europe or the west, but in Baghdad, and Balkh, Bukhara and Samarkand.

Moreover, Frankopan gives the reader a perspective on the rise of Mesopotamia, Alexander the Great, the rise of Christianity in the eastern Roman Empire and then the subsequent rise of Islam throughout much of Asia. He then proceeds to discuss the Crusades, the rise of Genghis Khan and his mighty Mongol Empire and then the rise of China more specifically. He concludes by bringing the book up to the present day with the rise of Europe and the USA before suggesting that there is a reorienting of history underway again. In other words:

we are witnessingthe birthing pains of a region that once dominated the intellectual, cultural and economic landscape and which is now re-emerging. We are seeing the signs of the worlds centre of gravity shifting back to where it lay for millennia.

Whether you agree or not with Peter Frankopans conclusions, the book remains a tour-de-force. Thoroughly recommended.

The 4th Turning Is Inevitable LewRockwell

In Part 1 of this article I provided the background regarding the phases of Fourth Turnings and where we stand nine years into this period of crisis. I will now ponder what could happen during the remainder of this Fourth Turning.

History offers no guarantees. Obviously, things could go horribly wrong the possibilities ranging from a nuclear exchange to incurable plagues, from terrorist anarchy to high-tech dictatorship. We should not assume that Providence will always exempt our nation from the irreversible tragedies that have overtaken so many others: not just temporary hardship, but debasement and total ruin. Losing in the next Fourth Turning could mean something incomparably worse. It could mean a lasting defeat from which our national innocence perhaps even our nation might never recover.  Strauss & Howe  The Fourth Turning

The most important point to comprehend is the death of the existing social order always occurs during the course of a Fourth Turning. Thus far, those constituting the Deep State hierarchy have fended off their demise. They are utilizing every tool at their disposal to retain their wealth, power and control. As their mass media propaganda machine falters, they have redoubled their rigging of financial markets to promote a narrative of economic recovery, while further enriching themselves and their cronies.

It is clear they have reached the peak of financial manipulation, money printing, and artificial interest rate suppression. The narrative is faltering. Their last and final option to retain power is war. As their everything bubble (stocks, bonds, real estate) inevitably implodes, civil and/or global military conflict will be utilized to distract the populace from their Deep State domestic disasters.

The time for compromise is long past. There are no moderates left in the political spectrum. The mood of the country is clearly trending towards conflict. Trump, as the grey champion of this Fourth Turning, has proven to be a lightning rod of hate. He infuriates his political opponents, the left wing media, many in his own party, foreign leaders, billionaires and most worrisome to his well-being the shadowy surveillance state intel operatives.

Race vs. America LewRockwell

Justins note: Today, Doug and I continue our conversation on why the U.S. could dissolve over time. Doug says the problems are all bubbling to the surfaceand when the U.S. eventually breaks apart it will not be peaceful. (If you missed Part I, you can catch up right here.)


Justin: What about political tensions? Because, as Im sure youve seen, the far-left and far-right are becoming more and more antagonistic. In some cases, theyve even become violent towards each other.

Could radical political ideologies cause the country to break apart?

Doug: Yes, I think so.

In the late 60s and the early 70s, hundreds of bombings took place at universities, banks, and all kinds of places. The National Guard was in cities like Detroit during the riots, and they were raking buildings with .50 caliber machine guns. It was wild.

I dont think most remember this. At least, I dont see it being brought up anywhere.

I lived in Washington DC then. It seemed like there was tear gas in the air half the time I went out on a date on a Friday or Saturday night.

But as wild and wooly as things were back then, what we have now is much more serious.

The racial element is still there, but the ideological element is even more pronounced.

In those days, people at least talked to each other. You could have a disagreement, and it was a simple difference of opinion.

Its much worse now. Today, theres a visceral hatred between the left and the right, between the people that live in the so-called red counties and blue counties.

You add that to the racial situation. Then throw in the fact that the rich are getting richer at an exponential rate while the middle class is disappearing.

And lets not forget the large-scale subsidized migration of people from totally alien Third World hellholes. This is not what the U.S. was founded on. Before changes in the immigration law that were made in the 60s, immigrants were culturally compatible opportunity seekers that were coming to America to improve themselves.

Now, people from all kinds of alien places are being imported by the hundreds of thousands by NGOs; they then go on welfare in enclaves in different places around the country. This is unlikely to end well. The U.S. is no longer a country.

That said, Im actually for open borders. But its only possible if, A, there is zero welfare to attract the wrong types. And, B, all property was privately owned, to help ensure everyone is self-supporting.

Essential Skills and Training LewRockwell

For this article, were going to go into basic focus mode: you start out with the basics and build upon them.  This is the type of mindset and foundation that work for everything in life (basically).  You use it as a format in everything you do, such as building a home or when you begin an exercise program.  In this vein, were going to create a Training METL: A Mission-Essential Task List for your Training as a basis for well-rounding yourself.  This is Part 1 of a 2-part series.

What is your focus?  What type of work do you do?  How do you allocate your time?  A short time ago, I wrote a piece on the importance of self-analysis: creating a true picture of yourself, your strengths, and areas that you need to improve in.  This holds true here, as you identify and prioritize your goals, with an overall objective in mind.  Here is an overall objective for you:

To survive and thrive as you and your family develop physically, mentally, and spiritually to well-round yourselves and prepare for any disaster that arises.

Simple enough.  The Mission-Essential Task List for Training can become a big part in actually realizing that objective and maintaining it.  This METL (called Metal in the Army) for your use will use broad categories to train and prepare that you can refine as your needs change and your skills improve.  Lets start it off!

  1. Physical Training: It all starts here, with whatever you do to be able to hang with the big dogs!  Whether youre a Triathlete, a weightlifter, a boxer, or a swimmer, you need to take your personal forte and tailor it to the maximum productive capacity.  Outline your training schedule, plan short and long-term goals for improvement, and take copious notes!  If youre a swimmer, do you want to swim the English Channel?  If youre a marathon runner, do you want to set a personal record for yourself?  Want to up your max on the bench press by 50 lbs.?  Part of your training is to identify your goals, and work up to them.  Tie in what you can do with the tasks you will need to accomplish as a survivor.  This also has to do with your overall body fat content (what is your goal?) and your measurements of weight, and tape.  Physical training is not an accessory: it is a priority!
  2. Martial/Fighting Arts Training: this is in the form of self-defense, such as Karate or the Martial Arts, or Boxing.  This also takes the form of skill with weapons and firearms.  Were talking about combat with knives, wit...

He Took His Gun on a Run LewRockwell

A lot of people dont take their guns with them when theyre doing certain things, particularly on a run. After all, even a lightweight pistol is going to cause issues with your everyday running shorts, and no one wants to wear a fanny pack, especially one loaded down with a firearm, right?

Well, Josh Williams of Austin, Texas didnt worry about any of that. Eventually, anyway, and at least one area resident is thankful for that.

Josh Williams has been licensed to carry a gun for about 10 years and takes his Glock 43 almost everywhere he goes, KVUE-TV reported.

But on the morning of Sept. 15, Williams almost didnt take the gun along for his weekly run on the Hike-and-Bike Trail in Austin, Texas but a voice inside him said he might need it, the station said.

Did he ever.

It was about 5:30 a.m. and still dark when Williams heard a womans screams on the trail over his earbuds, KVUE reported.

So he took out his earbuds and pointed his flashlight in the direction of the screaming and quickly realized a woman was being sexually assaulted, the station said.

I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her, Williams told KVUE, adding that he ordered the man to get on his knees and show his hands.

The man ran off, leaving him with the victim, safe and sound.

A few days later, 22-year-old Richard McEachern was arrested for the assault. He remains in the Travis County Jail.

The Friendliest Cities in the World LewRockwell

The worlds destinations have been ranked according levels of happiness, friendliness, safety and treatment of tourists with some unexpected cities topping the list.

In a list released by holiday website Travelbird, Australia has been poorly represented with only Sydney and Melbourne recognised in the top 100.

Australians are renowned worldwide for their friendliness and jovial nature but it seems tourists arent impressed with the land Down Under when it comes to safety and welcoming travellers with open arms.

Travel experts and tourists who have jetted around the world were quizzed on their perceptions of each city they visited, and Australian destinations were harshly ranked by overseas holidaymakers.

Both Sydney and Melbourne were evenly matched in the overall happiness of citizens both scoring a pleasant nine out of 10 but it was the Nordic city of Oslo which took out the number one spot as happiest destination in the world with a perfect 10 score.

Trailing close behind Oslo on the happiness scale is Copenhagen in Denmark, while Reykjavik in Iceland made third place and three consecutive Swiss cities held down places four, five and six.

European and Scandinavian cities dominated the top 10 happiest locations in the world but right behind Toronto, Canada, was Auckland at number 11 and Melbourne and Sydney tying at 9/10 for happiness too.

The cities with the unhappiest locals were found to be Kiev in Ukraine, Phnom Penh in Cambodia and New Delhi in India.

The next category each city was ranked in was safety sourced from United Nations data which investigated the perception of security and how safe people feel.

An unexpected winner of this department was the UAE city of Abu Dhabi with a perfect score, while Melbourne sat at 49th place and Sydney at 58th, likely because of the threat of terror attacks and past incidents.

Travelbird also assessed each city on how willing locals are to welcome tourists into their own homes based on t...

Cradles of Capitalism LewRockwell

There long has been a persistent academic debate as to whether an ancient economy, referring mainly to Greece, even existed at all. In a field dominated by Marx, Marxists, the 19th century sociologist Max Weber, and such scholars of renown as Sir Moses Finley, the lingering image of the economic world of the Greek polis is that of something very static. We imagine a leisure class lounging at the sandaled foot of an orator while slaves tended to the fields, flogging cows harnessed to ploughs stuck in the mud. It is the notion of a primitive economy: money made for status, not investment; credit extended for the purchase of slaves, war waged for the capture of booty, elites in control of craft guilds and tyrant-kings keeping the peace by randomly doling out the goods.

Then there is ancient epic itself, with the noble Odysseus disdaining seafaring for profit (though he did take all the pay-offs he could collect) and the great Achilles pondering a discovery of precious treasure only so far as it might estimate his aristocratic worth. From this rudimentary foundation, an entire field of Socialist-Keynesian views on the Greek economy has prevailed, with occasional libertarian scholars such as Murray Rothbard and Jess Huerta de Soto getting a word in edgewise. In recent time, however, academia has found much more evidence of technological advances and market-driven considerations on the part of the classical polis than previously thought.

Keeping in mind that in both ancient Greece (and Renaissance Italy) that democracy was not incompatible with aristocracy, and that oligarchies and tyrants were not necessarily illiberal, several points may be made in defense of the economic model of the city-state: 1) that the stronger the city-state, the greater the industrial and economic expansion; 2) that private property was considered a fundamental economic principle; 3) that banking standards were relatively conservative; 4) that the wealthiest city-states were of the most socially dynamic; 5) that city-state competition spearheaded the modern entrepreneurial Europe; and 6) that the visionary tyrant was almost always business-first in his rule.

The first great industrial revolution of ancient Greece took place around 500 BC, the result of political power shifting into regional democratic clusters individually known as the polis.

Dont Be a Victim of Vehicular Terror LewRockwell

In these days of smartphone distractions, youre seeing more and more people oblivious of their surroundings. In the past, this might get you a bump on the head by walking into a lamp post. In todays world, however, it could cost you your life.

The NYC vehicular attack that killed 8 and injured a number of others is just the latest in a number of incidents by the deranged, disgruntled, and politically motivated.  These events occur with little warning. Yet, being situationally aware could prevent you from becoming a victim of a future vehicular terror event.

Situational awareness involves understanding factors in your immediate vicinity that might represent a threat. Im not talking about second-hand smoke; Im talking about serious dangers that you can avoid with rapid action.

Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts

Vehicular terrorism is not new, with Israel the scene of multiple attacks in past years. Its becoming more and more common in the West, however, with attacks in NYC, London, Nice, France, Berlin, and elsewhere. A Somali student used his car to run over several people at Ohio State University and then perpetrated a knife attack on those who, ironically, ran over to see if he was injured. Many similar events have occurred, but rarely make the news.

Why vehicular terror? Terror attacks are often associated with bombs, but making a bomb requires some expertise to assemble safely. Guns, the other preferred weapon, are difficult to come by in most countries other than the U.S. Owning or renting a vehicle, however, is easy. Trucks and cars can cause mass casualties if wielded as a weapon; obtaining one isnt an act that evokes suspicion.

Early this year, an article titled Just Terror Tactics was published by the English-language ISIS magazine Rumiyah.  It described which vehicles will cause the most damage and called for attacks on Western crowds. It is a simple idea and there is not much involved in its preparation, the article said. All what is needed is the willingness to give ones life for Allah.

The article goes on: Pick your location and timing carefully. Go for the most crowded locations. Narrower spots are also better because it gives less chance for the people to run away. Avoid locations where other vehicles may intercept you

To achieve maximum carnage, you need to pick up as much speed as you can while still retaining good control of your vehicle in order to maximize your inertia and be able to strike as many people as possible in your first run.

The writer also suggested attackers weld steel blades onto the front of an SUV: They do not need to be extra sharp because with the speed of the truck at the time of impact, even a blunter edge would slice through bone...

Dozens of Christian, Conservative and Pro-Family Leaders Sign Letter in Support of Judge Roy Moore Will Attend Rally Tomorrow The Gateway Pundit

CHRISTIAN, CONSERVATIVE AND PRO-FAMILY LEADERS RELEASE POWERFUL STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF ALABAMA JUDGE ROY MOORE

Major Press Conference Thursday in Birmingham

1:00 PM Thursday
Birmingham Room of the Birmingham Marriott
3590 Grandview Parkway
Birmingham, Alabama

STAND WITH JUDGE ROY MOORE IN BIRMINGHAM

Reject Suspiciously-Timed Accusations without Evidence Generated by the Alt-Left and Republican Establishment

At the Press Conference, hosted by Faith2Action President Janet Porter and Dr. Steven Hotze, CEO of Restore Our Godly Heritage PAC, media will be presented with a letter signed by pro-family leaders and pastors from across the nation which states:

We stand with Judge Roy Moore, a man of integrity who has never wavered from his valiant defense of the unborn, the Ten Commandments, and the Constitution.

We are confident the voters of Alabama will not be fooled by suspiciously timed accusations without evidence, and will reject the politics of personal destruction led by the Washington Post. If the media lynch mob and establishment politicians are allowed to ambush Judge Roy Moore, then they will destroy anyone who gets in their way. We stand with Roy Moore.

Pro-aborts often ambush pro-lifers on the eve of an election, said Andy Schlafly, Attorney for Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. They did the same thing to Clarence Thomas and now theyre doing it to Judge Roy Moore. Alabamians are pro-life and will not be fooled by this latest attempt of abortion supporters to steal an election.

Steven Hotze, M.D., stated, Judge Roy Moore has demonstrated the courage of his Christian and conservative convictions by defending the right-to-life of unborn babies, the Ten Commandments and Biblical marriage. In the face of overwhelming opposition, Judge Moore refused to compromise. We need a man of Judge Moores commitment in the U.S. Senate.

I trust Judge Roy Moorenot the Washington Post and Republican Establishment who are orchestrating his character assignation, said Janet Porter. Judge Moore has been a personal friend and a friend of life for decades, while his opponent supports even Partial Birth Abortion, where a late-term baby is partially delivered before having his or her brains sucked out, added Porter, who lobbied to pass the nations first ban on Partial Birth Abortion. Doug Jones publically admitted he supports abortion until birth in a September 27th MSNBC interview.

GOP Swamp Leaders Plotting Drastic Plan To Steal Senate Seat From Judge Moore RINOS Steering White House Decision? The Gateway Pundit

As Steve Bannon warned at CPAC back in February, If you think theyre going to give your country back to you without a fight you are sadly mistaken.

Republican leaders are plotting a drastic plan, to block Judge Roy Moore from becoming the next Senator of Alabama. Even more concerning, Vice-President Mike Pence and his team are helping to steer the administrations decision-making process on the Alabama race, says POLITICO. 

POLITICO reports:

With less than four weeks until the special election and no sign that the partys besieged nominee will exit the race, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his top advisers are discussing the legal feasibility of asking appointed Sen. Luther Strange to resign from his seat in order to trigger a new special election.

McConnell aides express caution, saying theyre uncertain whether such a move, one of several options being discussed, is even possible. Yet the talks underscore the despair among top Republicans over relinquishing a seat in deep-red Alabama, further diminishing their slim Senate majority.

[]

The White House, meanwhile, is poring over survey results. Trump remained silent about the situation on Wednesday, ignoring questions from reporters about Alabama after he delivered extensive public remarks on his 12-day Asia tour. Vice President Mike Pence, his chief of staff, Nick Ayers, and the administrations political director, Bill Stepien, are helping to steer the administrations decision-making process on the Alabama race.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Axios says Republican swamp creatures may ask RINO hack Luther Strange who lost to Moore during the primary and Republican Rep. Robert Aderholtto to run as write-in candidates.

It gets worse

According to this Axios report, the Republican establishment hacks may even try to delay the Senate race or block Moore if he wins since its too late to remove him from the ballot!

The World Seems To Be Collapsing Around Paul Ryan's Ears DownWithTyranny!


The Ryan/Trump tax plan (short version): over the long run, it raises taxes on the entire middle class while repealing health coverage for around 13 million people, all to give corporations and the 1% gargantuan tax cuts. No one should have expected anything else from these two serial liars. Keep in mind that an NBC/WSJ poll in September found that 55% of Americans said they that taxes on corporations should be increased and only 16% favored decreasing them. It's a shame Democrats can't promote that as a motivation for getting people to go to the polls and voting. Oh, right... that could endanger Blue Dogs, New Dems and other corrupt conservative Democrats favored by the DCCC and the part's DC establishment.

Yesterday, several endangered Republicans-- Darrell Issa (CA), Chris Smith (NJ), Leonard Lance (NJ), Elise Stefanik (NY), Peter King (NY), Dan Donovan (NY), Lee Zeldin (NY)... a few others-- announced they're voting against the Trump/Ryan tax bill that cuts taxes on billionaires at the expense of the middle and working class. The American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Federation of American Hospitalsand several other nonpartisan groups sent Congress a letter panning it for seeking to repeal the individual mandate.

TICK TOCK: Hannity Warns of Another Bombshell As Details Emerge Top FBI Official Granted Clinton Email Probe Special Status The Gateway Pundit

Fox News host Sean Hannity is on the front lines in the fight against the mainstream medias blatant effort to ignore scandal after scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday evening, Hannity teased yet another bombshell by tweeting a new report by The Hills John Solomon about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe writing an email in which he revealed the Clinton email investigation had been given special status.

The Hill reports:

McCabes Oct. 23, 2016, email to press officials in the FBI said the probe was under the control of a small group of high-ranking people at the FBIs headquarters in Washington.

As I now know the decision was made to investigate it at HQ with a small team, McCabe wrote in the email. He said he had no input when the Clinton email investigation started in summer 2015, while he was serving as assistant director in charge of the FBIs Washington office.

[The Washington office] provided some personnel for the effort but it was referred to as a special and I was not given any details about it, he wrote.

Judge Moore Attorney Demands Gloria Allred Accuser Release Yearbook After Gateway Pundit Raises Doubts (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

An attorney for GOP Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore revealed Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson lied when she said no contact had been made between the Judge and herself following the alleged sexual advancement in 1977.

In addition, Moores attorney called on the accuser to release the yearbook to determine if it is indeed the Judges signature inside on it.

The Hill reports:

A lawyer for Alabama Senate GOP nominee Roy Moore on Wednesday suggested a yearbook signature presented by a woman accusing Moore of sexual assault could be fake.

[]

Jauregui repeatedly noted Nelsons association with the famous lawyer Gloria Allred, who represented women who accused President Trump of sexual misconduct, and called on them to release the yearbook for handwriting analysis.

We demand you immediately release the yearbook to a neutral custodian so our expert can look at the actual document, release the yearbook so we can determine is it genuine or is it a fraud, Jauregui told reporters in Birmingham.

[]

The message read: To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A.

Jauregui implied that the entire yearbook note was not written by the same person. And he claimed that the D.A. next to Moores name were the initials of his assistant at the time, a sign that the assistant had actually stamped Moores signature.

Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moores signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelsons yearbook is a forgery.

WHOA! James Woods Smacks Down Pompous Leftist Claiming Woods Likes to Chase 16-Year-Old Girls The Gateway Pundit

Dont mess with James Woods!

The patriotic actor smacked down a pompous leftist who tweeted that James Woods likes to chase 16-year-old girls.

Sexual assault accusations are flying in Hollywood and D.C. after Harvey Weinstein got taken down with very credible rape accusations.

Judge Roy Moore is under siege by Republican swamp creatures in an effort to derail him from winning the Alabama Senate seat by smearing him with sexual assault accusations.

Now everybody is accusing everybody of sexual assault!

Trump-hating poker player from Canada, Daniel Negreanu tweeted, Add James Woods to the list of men accused of chasing 16 year old girls He appears to have a lot in common with Roy Moore. What is wrong with these people? Disgusting. Do I believe these women? 1000% yes.

In the Daily Mail article Negreanu linked, it is not clear why a woman is holding up a James Woods sign at a Me Too march in Hollywood against sexual assault. Actress Amber Tamblyn claims Woods tried to pick up her and her friend when they were 16 and asked them to go to Vegas

In September, actress Amber Tamblyn called Woods predatory, saying he tried to pick her and a friend up at a diner when she was 16. Responding, Woods accused Tamblyn of lying.

Judge Roy Moore Pens Powerful Letter to Sean Hannity After His 24 Hour Demand The Gateway Pundit

On his Fox News program Tuesday, Sean Hannity called on Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to explain inconsistencies, in his story surrounding allegations of sexual harrestment within 24 hours or drop out of the race.

In an attempt to quell Hannitys concerns, Judge Moore tweeted a powerful open letter to the Fox News host Wednesday evening.

The powerful open letter reads:

Dear Sean:

I am suffering the same treatment other Republicans have had to endure.

A month prior to the general election for U.S. Senate in Alabama, I have been attacked by the Washington Post and other liberal media in a desperate attempt to smear my character and defeat my campaign.

Over the last 40 years I have held several public offices, including Deputy District Attorney, Circuit Judge, and Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. In addition to running five statewide and three county campaigns for public office, I have been involved in two major controversies that attracted national attention, one about the Ten Commandments and the other the sanctity of marriage.

The Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission, Court of the Judiciary, and Attorney General have investigated, scrutinized, examined, and vetted me, not to mention every opposing candidate against whom I have run.

I have been married for almost 33 years to my wife Kayla. We have four children and five granddaughters.

We are in the process of investigating these false allegations to determine their origin and motivation. For instance, we have documented that the most recent accuser, Beverly Nelson, was a party in a divorce action before me in Etowah County Circuit Court in 1999. No motion was made for me to recuse. In her accusations, Nelson did not mention that I was the judge assigned to her divorce case in 1999, a matter that...

After the election of Donald J. Trump as President the Democrat-Media complex immediately blamed Russian interference and Fake News for Hillary Clintons historic loss.

The accusations reached such a fever pitch that Facebook and Twitter announced new rules for their social media sites.

In December 2016 Facebook announced it was going to start fact-checking, labeling, and burying fake news and hoaxes in its News Feed.  Facebook announced far left Snopes, Politifact, ABC News and the Associated Press would be their fact-checkers for Fake News.

In March the Columbia Journalism Review puslished a report titled: Study: Breitbart-led Right-wing Media Ecosystem Altered Broader Media Agenda.

The article found that only Breitbart, The Hill and FOX News (and The Drudge Report) were more influential than The Gateway Pundit in last years election with conservative audiences.

Raising the Bayonne Bridge bensozia

The Bayonne Bridge crosses the Kill van Kull, one of the entrances to New York's extremely busy harbor and my nominee for the world's coolest river name. The bridge used to look like this. It was built in 1931, its steel arch a modernist monument with many admirers. The roadway was 151 feet (46 m) above the water.

That was plenty high for big ships of the twentieth century, but in the twenty-first they have gotten even bigger. So more than a decade ago the Port Authority realized that something would have to be done about the Bayonne Bridge. After considering proposals to completely replace the bridge they decided to keep the old structure but raise the roadway. The roadway, after all, is not a structural element of the bridge; the steel arch provides all the strength and support. Here you can see the upper roadway being built 65 feet (20 m) above the old one. The cost of the construction was $748 million.

On September 7, one of the world's biggest ships, the "neo-Panamax containership" Theodore Roosevelt, sailed under the bridge, showing off its new height.

Ivanka Trump Joins Republican Swamp Creatures, Attacks Roy Moore: I Have No Reason to Doubt the Victims Accounts The Gateway Pundit

Ivanka Trump joined the Republican swamp creatures in blasting Roy Moore after WaPo ran a hit piece on the Judge accusing him of sexually assaulting teenage girls in the 70s.

Ivanka told the Associated Press Theres a special place in hell for people who prey on children. Ive yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims accounts.

We all agree with Ivanka that people who prey on children are evil. Roy Moore isnt being accused of preying on children. The accusations against him have yet to be proven.

There are many holes in WaPos hit piece. One of the accusers stepson even said his stepmom is lying. OUCH!

TGPs Josh Caplan reported, Darrel Nelson, the stepson of Judge Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson says the allegations are all lies. Nelson says he is baffled by the timing of the sexual advancement claims and voices his staunch support for the Alabama GOP Senate candidate.

Moore supporters immediately became suspicious of these accusation because of the timing. Gloria Allred also paraded out the victims in theatrical press conferences further discrediting the accusers.

Also

An Alabama woman who worked closely with Judge Roy Moore when she was a teen spoke to Conservative Tribune this week.

The woman says she believes Roy Moore is innocent and said, I always felt safe around him, I never once felt uncomfortable.

Many women came forward and accused Ivankas own father of sexual assault right before the presidential election. Did she say the same thing about her fathers accusers?

Accusations alone should not be enough to destroy a persons life. The Republican swamp creatures are threatened by an anti-establishment candidate and will do anything to keep him out of the Senate.

Gateway Pundits Lucian Wintrich Talks University Censorship with Buck Sexton on America Now [AUDIO] The Gateway Pundit

The Gateway Pundits Lucian Wintrich appeared on the nationally syndicated radio talkshow Buck Sexton with America Now to discuss the recent barriers put up by UMass Boston regarding his now-postponed speech.

The speech was to be held on Friday, November 17, on the campus of UMass Boston, but after a request by the school to change his poster and then a last minute security concern, the speech was postponed until February.

Wintrich commented to Sexton:

The speech that I was set to give, it really did just examine the current cultural climate that were dealing with right now, where the left is so reactionary, where the left is so quick to not only disparage people but call innocuous slogans like [It Is OK to Be White] racist. Low and behold, of course, the university, at the very last minute, theyre claiming that theres security concerns. Its an insecure environment.

Sexton likened the title of Wintrichs speech (Its OK to Be White) to the All Lives Matter slogan:

This kindve reminds me of the All Lives Matter situation where its hard to think of a more innocuous phrase . . . or a phrase that should have a more universal buy-in than All Lives Matter, but they say its like showing up at a funeral and saying, What about my uncle who died last week? Theyre saying that it diverts attention, and whether you believe that or not, I cant even think of what the objection is to Its OK to Be White.

Wintrich commented:

I dont think it aligns with their games of intersectionality and multiculturalist policies. Right now, according to the University of Masschusetts Boston it is not okay to be white, but I guess its okay in three months from now when they prepare for it.

It appears that college campuses are sticking to their hyper-liberal guns and are actively attempting to keep conservatives from speaking to their students. Where Ben Shapiros Berkeley speech seemed like a coup, it really wasnt because the campus had the eyes of the world upon it and the stake was free speech itself, but when not under the scrutiny of every major publication in the country, universities persist with their targeted bullying campaigns and their pernicious game of censor the conservative.

Report: Fusion GPS Founder Never Even Verified Dossier Claims Before Peddling Document to Reporters The Gateway Pundit

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson spoke with House investigators in a closed-door meeting Tuesday. Fox News Catherine Herridge reports Simpson never even verified the Dossier claims before peddling the document to reporters.

Fox News reports:

The co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier told House investigators Tuesday that he personally discussed with members of the media allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, though he did not speak to the sources behind the claims, a source told Fox News.

But the source said Simpson acknowledged he did not personally look into certain aspects of the dossier which was authored by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained salacious allegations about the Trump teams ties to Russia.

Simpson told investigators he never spoke to the underlying sources of the document, never traveled to Russia and did not verify the dossier beyond comparing the claims to open source media reporting.

Herridge also said that her source told her that Glenn Simpson was upset when Comey re-opened Hillarys email investigation at the end of October and wanted to push back.

And he did

Tens of thousands being dropped from US student loan relief program WORDVIRUS

By J. Cooper
15 November 2017

October marked 10 years since the George W. Bush administration enacted the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program as an incentive to young college graduates to pursue careers as teachers, in government, or at non-profit institutions. The program was advertised as a way for some recent graduates to see an exit sign on their student loan debt.

In 2006, average student loan debt for undergraduates was just under $20,000. For graduate students it was nearly $40,000. For the class of 2016, average undergraduate debt had climbed to $37,172. For graduate students, the average is considerably higher. In that same period, college tuition has increased 63 percent.

Over the past 10 years over half a million graduates have signed up for PSLF. However, according to a recent article in Rolling Stone, more than half of those have been disqualified for myriad bureaucratic reasons. Last month a total of only 137 individuals were deemed eligible to have the balance of their student loans wiped clean. Thousands are just finding out that their years of paying on time wont count under the federal forgiveness plan because they took out the wrong type of loan, their employer has been disqualified, or their original lender sold the l...

BREAKING: Accuser LIED About Having No Contact With Roy Moore After Alleged Sexual Assault JUDGE MOORE DISMISSED HER DIVORCE ACTION! The Gateway Pundit

An attorney for GOP Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore revealed Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson lied when she said no contact had been made between the Judge and herself following the alleged sexual advancement in 1977.

In fact, Judge Moore dismissed a divorce action brought by Nelson against her husband in 1999.

[Nelson & Gloria Allred] said that Ms. Nelson after the allegations had never seen or had any contact with Judge Moore In 1999, Ms. Nelson filed a divorce action The judge assigned was Roy S. Moore, said Roy Moores Attorney.

Nelson, 56, held a press conference in New York with embattled attorney Gloria Allred on Monday, alleging Judge Roy Moore sexually harassed her when she was 16 years old.

According to Beverly Young Nelsons account reported by the Washington Examiner, Moore offered to drive her home from work one night but instead parked in a dark, deserted part of a parking lot behind the restaurant where she worked. Nelson said Moore groped her and began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head onto his crotch.

Darrel Nelson, the stepson of Judge Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson says the allegations are all lies. Nelson says he is baffled by the timing of the sexual advancement claims and voices his staunch support for the Alabama GOP Senate candidate.

Ive known the woman, she married my father many, many years ago. Ive known her for a while now, and I truly do not believe that shes being honest about this, added Nelson.

Chicagos Attack On The Homeless: After Tent City Evictions, People Are In Hiding Shadowproof

As temperatures drop and the winter months near, the city of Chicago remains committed to ensuring homeless individuals are unable to erect Tent Cities in the Uptown area of the city near Lake Shore Drive. Authorities also contend the city has no obligation to offer alternative housing for homeless individuals.

The Chicago Police Department is prohibiting any protest tent encampments in Uptown and anyone who attempts to setup tents will be subject to arrest, as of September 19.

Such treatment of homeless people is typical of Alderman James Cappleman, whose ward includes Uptown. In his career as a politician, Cappleman has fought to ban low-rent cubicle hotels, introduced an ordinance to criminalize those at bus stops that are not waiting for buses, and ordered a Salvation Army food truck to stop providing food to homeless people. Cappleman also has overseen the loss of over 1,000 single-room occupancy units of affordable housing in the ward.

The actions of city officials have led to a federal lawsuit submitted to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. On behalf of Uptown Tent City Organizers (UTCO) and one of its members, Andy Thayer, the Uptown Peoples Law Center alleges the city of Chicago has violated their First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights by denying the group any venue to establish their protest encampment, arresting and threatening to arrest those that do so, and threatening to seize plaintiffs.

People are in hiding literally because the city has, subsequent to the evictions, tossed out peoples tents and tossed out peoples tarps and done it in a patently illegal fashion, Thayer told Shadowproof. Parks Department workers about a week or so ago came upon a place [in Lincoln Park] where people were staying. It was during park open hours and yet they confiscated peoples stuff and threw it into the trash, threw it into a garbage truck.

Thayer said people are hiding on private property. They are hiding on public ways. At 35th and Federal on the south side, where people were at the viaducts, the police threatened them with arrest. A similar incident happened at the Chicago River by Fullerton Avenue.

Uptowns homeless population accounts for nearly ten percent of the homeless population in...

The legacy of Obamacare: A five percent increase in heart patient deaths WORDVIRUS

15 November 2017

When one individual inflicts bodily injury upon another such that death results, we call the deed manslaughter; when the assailant knew in advance that the injury would be fatal, we call his deed murder. But when society places hundreds of proletarians in such a position that they inevitably meet a too early and an unnatural death, one which is quite as much a death by violence as that by the sword or bullet  murder it remains. (Friedrich Engels, The Condition of the Working Class in England, 1845)

Who Is Hector Morales? DownWithTyranny!


Gene Green is one of the worst Democrats in Congress-- very conservative and very corrupt, a pairing that you often find together. And he's retiring early. No realistic explanation why since he's been raising money hand over first all year. He raised $474,164 so far this year and has a campaign war-chest with $1,272,398 as of the September 30 FEC filing deadline. TX-29 is a strongly blue district-- PVI was D+12 in 2015 and is D+19 this year-- and Obama won it in a walk both times. A 77% Hispanic district, it wraps around Houston (north, east and south) and includes much of the Ship Channel area, South Houston and Pasadena. Green has promised to help solve the endemic pollution problem at election time while taking massive bribes from the oil and gas industries the rest of the time and helping push through their agenda. He should have been replaced years ago.

The only Democrat brave enough to take him on this cycle has been progressive activist and public school teacher Hector Morales. Hector has been one of the few progressives challenging an entrenched incumbent conservaDem anywhere in the country-- the toughest job in politics (please contribute to his campaign here). When the Republicans-- with Green's help. passed a fracking bill last July, we asked him about Green's vote and, he told us that "This should not come as a surprise as Gene Green is one of the founding members of the Congressional Oil & Gas Caucus along with Henry Cuellar and Vicente Gonzalez, to name a few.

GOP Sen. Says Swamp Creature McConnell Bluffing Senate Has No Choice but to Seat Judge Moore If He Wins The Gateway Pundit

Well, well, well. It appears Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might have oversold his hand yet again. Senator McConnell claims to be evaluating every option to block GOP Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore from assuming his seat if he wins the election. 

According to Senator Susan Collins, McConnell must seat Moore if he is victorious over Democrat Doug Jones.

Sen Collins says shes looked at the law and if @MooreSenateis elected we would have no choice but to seat him, tweeted NBC News reporter Frank Thorp V.

Breitbart News reports:

[Collins] remarks come amid threats from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other establishment Republican senators that they will push Moore out even if he wins on December 12 over Democrat Doug Jones.

Republican senators who opposed Moore are calling for him to step aside, after the Washington Post published an interview with a woman who said she met him in 1977 when she was 14 and he was 32, alleging that the second time she went out with Moore, he initiated a sexual encounter.

On Monday, another woman said during a press conference arranged by celebrity attorney Gloria Allred that when she was 16, Moore groped her in his car and tried to force her head towards his crotch.

STATISTICIAN: Shady Poll By GOP Elites Leaked To Get Judge Moore Out of the Race The Gateway Pundit

A new poll commissioned by the National Republican Senate Committee claims Alabama Democrat Senate candidate Doug Jones is leading Republican Judge Roy Moore by 12 points. 

Statistician Nate Silver implies the numbers may have been manipulated to pressure Moore out of the race.

I wouldnt put much stock in that NRSC poll showing Moore way down, which presumably was leaked in order to get him out of the race, tweeted Silver.

Even leftist researcher at Right Wing Watch, Jared Holt, thinks the poll should be approached with caution.

Despite the onslaught waged by establishment Democrats and Republicans, Moore is still leading in the polls.

Moore is leading Jones 49% to 43%!

FOX News 10 reports:

Undecided voters may decide the Alabama U.S. Senate race between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore. The FOX10 News/Strategy Research statewide poll of 3,000 likely voters, taken on November 13, shows Moore leading Jones 49% to 43% with 8% undecided.

Of those who indicated they would vote in the December 12 election, Moore lost 3 percentage points from the poll two weeks ago while Jones showed a 2 percent increase in support. Undecided voters went from 7 percent to 8 percent.

Among typical Republican voters,  Moore showed an 8 percent loss of support from our latest FOX10 News poll two weeks ago while Jones picked up 3 percent.

WOW! CNN Absolutely ROASTS Democrat Hack Ted Lieu For His Conduct During Sessions Hearing (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

In rare form, CNN roasted a Democrat hack for his poor conduct during AG Sessions hearing.

Ted Lieu (D-CA) thought he was going in for a softball interview with the Clinton News Network and instead got scolded.

CNNs Poppy Harlow asked Ted Lieu why he called AG Sessions a liar before he even started the hearing Tuesday morning. Lieu was also called out for a series of scathing tweets where he mocked Sessions looks.

Your tweets about him (Sessions) being a liar before he appeared in front of you. Is that appropriate?

Because he lied to the U.S. Senate, Lieu nervously answered.

Lieu then dragged Trump into it by saying, By the way, Im choosing words that the president uses on his own Twitter.

Poppy Harlow interrupted him and asked, Does that make it right?

Ted Lieu said hes going to continue calling Republicans names.

CNNs John Berman hit back again scolding Lieu and asked him, Is that a grown-up thing to do?

Lieu desperately tried to save face by bringing up Michelle Obamas line When they go low we go high and modified it to when they go low, we fight back.

Berman wasnt impressed and asked him, so when they go low, you stay low? OUCH!

Lieu dug in his heels and said hes going to continue to call Republicans names to which Poppy Harlow asked him, Is that what you would teach your children?

Its funny to see CNN grill a Democrat Congressman like this. He did not see it coming.

By the way, Ted Lieu also walked out on the moment of silence for the Texas mass shooting victims. He has no class whatsoever.

US President Donald J. Trump delivered a speech on Wednesday from the White House following his historic 14-day tour of East Asia. This was another brilliant move by the populist president.

President Trump discussed his many successful meetings and successful business meetings with East Asian leaders from Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and The Philippines. Trump explained his new doctrine of fair trade for the United States and United States workers.

President Trump knew the corrupt mainstream media would not cover his successful tour so he went directly to the American people with the results of his tour.

The president described the billions dollar trade deals he set up with the Asian regimes from Japan to Vietnam. This was another brilliant move by the US president who understands the corruption of the US media and is everyday fighting for everyday Americans.

The media is already mocking President Trump for drinking water during his speech.

Through Thick and Thin: Bannon Stands By Moore As Judge Continues Leading in Polls The Gateway Pundit

Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore is facing headwinds from the establishment not seen since President Trumps run for the White House. Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon is sticking by Judge Moore amid allegations of sexual harassment, despite the Daily Beast report stating otherwise,

POLITICO reports:

Two sources close to the former White House chief strategist and Trump campaign CEO, who helped turn the September Senate primary into a referendum on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, swatted down speculation that Bannon was reevaluating his support for Moore in the wake of the allegations.

It is 100% fake news that Steve Bannon would abandon Judge Moore, said a source familiar with Bannons thinking, comparing the situation with the Access Hollywood video scandal that prompted calls for Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race.

He is standing with Judge Moore through thick and through thin. The polls show the people of Alabama believe Judge Moore is innocent until proven guilty and these charges have not seen any evidence produced backing them up, the source added. The people of Alabama are smarter than the political class in Washington, the fake news locusts in the media, and the financial donor-class elites on the island of Manhattan. Judge Moore still has the support of the people of Alabama.

Breitbart News reporter Charlie Spiering didnt believe reports that Bannon is turning on Moore.

Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, speaks with reporters after the Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017, to consider, pursuant to H.Con.Res.71, the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2018, reconciliation legislation to authorize the Secretary of the Interior to establish and administer a competitive oil and gas program in the non-wilderness portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, known as the "1002 Area" or Coastal Plain.

Touting America First in Asia, Trump Sucks Up to China The Indypendent

Donald Trump wrapped up the longest international trip of his young presidency yesterday and the first real test of his foreign policy chops as he toured Asia for 12 days to build international support for U.S. opposition to North Korea. He also laid out the details of his Indo-Pacific dream bilateral trade policy at two major economic summits in the region, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

In China and South Korea, leaders echoed calls to dissuade Kim Jong-Un through sanctions and diplomacy. Trump warned the young dictator through a speech in South Korea that his is a very different administration than the United States has had in the past. Do not underestimate us. And do not try us. However, an attempt at a photo-op of Trump staring down the North Korean regime from across the demilitarized zone was stymied by a thick fog perhaps symbolic of the general uncertainty that continues to envelop the dynamic between the United States and North Korea.

Sparking fears of nuclear war over the most idiotic of causes at that Trump later tweeted from Vietnam on Saturday that he would NEVER call Kim short and fat?

Aside from his feud with North Korea, Trumps trip focused on international trade, one of few foreign policy issues that Donald Trump regularly campaigned on. In countless stump speeches, he lambasted his predecessors for trade deals that, as he put it, allow China to rape our country. By connecting the $347 billion trade deficit conceptually with voters frustration at the sharp decline of blue collar jobs (mainly in manufacturing), Trump conjured a resounding image of a hostile China that took advantage of Americans but that would ultimately yield to his negotiating skills.

At his first stop in Japan, Trump seemed to combine the twin purposes of his trip, telling Prime Minister Shinzo Abe he should buy more American military hardware to protect his country from North Korea. Its a lot of jobs for us and a lot of safety for Japan, he said.

The Trump that toured China sounded little like the Trump who suggested labeling the country a currency manipulator.

While meeting with Japanese industrial leaders, the president stuck to his America First economics by lamenting the nearly $70 billion trade deficit that the United States has suffered at the hands of Japan for many, many years. Although he repeatedly lauded Japanese investment in the United States, Trump pushed business leaders toward further investment, highlighting the renewed construction of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines. And we love it when you build cars, Trump said. Try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over. Is that possible to ask?

The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, a non-profit trade group, reported that in 2016, three-quarters of Japanes...

UCLA Basketball Players Arrested For Shoplifting in China Thank POTUS Trump For Securing Release (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were arrested for shoplighting sunglasses during a trip to Shanghai for a game against Georgia Tech. President Trump tweeted Wednesday that the players were facing 10 years in prison, despite earlier reports that they would serve 20 days under house arrest. 

Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!, tweeted the President.

At a press conference Wednesday, Cody Riley thanked President Trump for securing his release.

To President Trump and the United States government, thank you for taking the time to intervene on our behalf, UCLA basketball player Cody Riley said.

LA Times reports:

Trump said Tuesday that he had spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the three athletes, who were taken into custody while in Hangzhou for a game against Georgia Tech.

Their teammates left China after the game, but freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were held until Tuesday, when they boarded a plane in Shanghai. When they arrived in Los Angeles, the three ignored reporters questions. They planned to speak at a news conference Wednesday.

THE ALT-RIGHT'S TROLL CANDIDATE FOR ELIZABETH WARREN'S SEAT WON'T LOSE IN THE PRIMARIES No More Mister Nice Blog

A new poll from Boston's WBUR suggests that Elizabeth Warren is in excellent shape as she approaches the 2018 midterms.

Warren is viewed favorably by 55 percent of Massachusetts voters, according to the survey, and the Democrat has advantages of at least 23 percentage points when faced off individually against her four declared challengers....
And she certainly seems to have the right message.
Most voters polled said a candidate who made addressing the cost of health care a major priority would make them much more likely to back the candidate, while 42 percent of voters said a candidate in favor of repealing the Affordable Care Act would make them much less likely to get their support.

Nearly half of survey respondents -- 48 percent also said that if a Senate candidate made standing up to President Trump a major priority, it would make them much more likely to back the candidate.

Just 27 percent of Massachusetts voters view the Republican president favorably, compared with 66 percent who have an unfavorable view of him.
She's doing a lot better than she was right around Inauguration Day, when only 44% of respondents in a WBUR poll thought she deserved reelection, while 46% believed that Massachusetts should "give someone else a chance."

So how's she doing against potential challengers?
In hypothetical match-ups, Warren leads Geoff Diehl, 58 percent to 32 percent; Shiva Ayyadurai, 58-27; Beth Lindstrom, 56-33; and John Kingston, 57-33.
But that comes with an asterisk:
(When the survey went into the field, Ayyadurai was running in the Republican primary, with the other three candidates; he now plans to run as an independent.)
That means that Ayyadurai -- a troll who pals around with the alt-right -- will be in the race all the way to November. I told you about this guy a few months ago. He was born in India and has said, "I think only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian." A real class act, Ayyadurai sent Warren a DNA kit for her birthday.

Ayyadurai also claims he invented email, and dismisses those who say email existed a decade before he says he invented it, even if they're scientists who were actual users of what they quite sensibly regard as early email. Ayyadurai sues new...

NY Times Reporter Asks Twitter What It Will do About Videos of Joe Biden Sexually Assaulting Girls The Gateway Pundit

New York Times reporter Nicole Perlroth asked Twitter what the site intends to do about reports being tweeted based on C-SPAN videos that former Vice President Biden is a serial child molester.

Then-Vice President Joe Biden gropes the breast of a girl child relative of Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) at a ceremonial swearing-in at the Capitol, January 6, 2015.

Perlroth posted several tweets about the matter starting Tuesday in response to a Twitter thread by Richard Armande Mills.

Mills posted a thread on Monday starting with, Its time to talk about former Vice President Joe Biden, the open sexual predator. A thread/moment, and proceeded to post several C-SPAN video clips of Biden fondling girls.

The Gateway Pundit found those videos independently of Mills and reported on some of the more egregious Biden sex assaults on children in two articles. However Mills deserves the credit for getting people to focus this week on Bidens behavior.

Luther Stranges Campaign Tried and Tried and Tried Yet FAILED to Confirm Moore Allegations The Gateway Pundit

The Washington Post slammed Judge Roy Moore with what appears to be a dirty political hit piece accusing him of sexually assaulting teenage girls in an effort to derail his run for the Alabama Senate seat.

Moore supporters immediately became suspicious of these accusation because of the timing. Gloria Allred also paraded out the victims in theatrical press conferences further discrediting the accusers.

How is it that Judge Roy Moore, a man who has spent decades in public service has never been hit with these accusations?

Luther Stranges campaign spent millions of dollars to defeat Moore. Why didnt they hit Moore with these allegations a few months ago? It turns out Luther Stranges campaign tried and tried and tried to confirm the Moore allegations yet backed down when they couldnt get any solid information.

The Washington Examiner reported:

About six or seven months ago, Sen. Luther Stranges campaign heard that Roy Moore liked to chase women around the courthouse, according to two Alabama Republican sources.

We did a lot of research. We tried and tried and tried, one source said. I think if we were able to find the names out, we probably would have passed it along to a reporter to track down We just werent able.

The second source said the campaign was never able to get any solid information or leads or corroboration. Just like many people in Alabama, we heard a rumor.

[..]

Indeed, when rivals heard that Moore may have committed misconduct, they sought to rattle loose public records, such as bar complaints and court records regarding Moores wife Kayla. The efforts did not yield corroboration.

There are many holes in WaPos hit piece. One of the accusers stepson even said his stepmom is lying. OUCH!

TGPs Josh Caplan reported, Darrel Nelson, the stepson of Judge Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson says the allegations are all lies. Nelson says he is baffled by the timing of the sexual advancement claims and voices his staunch support for the Alabama GOP Senate candidate.

PAPER: What Hillary Clinton Knew About African Slave Auctions & Genocidal Death Squads The Gateway Pundit

From the Uranium One scandal to rigging the Democrat primary race in 2016, Hillary Clinton is up to her ears in corruption. Underneath the surface is a little known scandal about what Clinton knew concerning Libyas thriving slave trade and genocidal death squads.

Zerohedge reports:

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in liberated Libyabut CNNs crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.

Though CNNs footage and accompanying report is shocking, such practices have been quietly documented for years, and clear warnings were issued starting in early 2011 that Libyas black as well as migrant population would be the first to fall victim at the hands of the Islamist Libyan rebels that NATOs war empowered. From the outset critics of Western intervention in Libya loudly sounded the alarm of a genocide against black Libyans in progress committed by the very rebels the US, UK, France, and Gulf allies were arming  a fact so well-known that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was personally briefed and warned on the matter.

Donald Trump Asks: Will UCLA Basketball Players He Saved From Long Prison Sentences In China Say Thanks? The Gateway Pundit

Three UCLA Basketball players were arrested in China after they attempted to steal expensive sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Beijing. Lucky for them, the attempted theft took place while President Donald Trump was in China for his series of successful meetings with Asian leaders.

It has been reported that President Trump personally intervened in the case, asking President Xi Jinping to release the three Americans LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill.

UCLA Mens Basketball student-athletes LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley are returning from China to Los Angeles at this time, UCLA associate communications director, Alex Timiraos, said in a statement.

Once arriving back in America Tuesday, the three (incredibly entitled) basketball players ignored all reporters questions and claimed that they would address what happened in a press conference Wednesday (today).

President Donald Trump has openly wondered on Twitter this morning: will they thank him for guaranteeing their release, or will they not accolade it due to the far-left culture of UCLA?

ROGER STONE: Contact Between Donald Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks is Not Russian Collusion The Gateway Pundit

THE DONALD TRUMP JR. PILE ON

ATLANTIC MAGAZINE BS

By Roger Stone

There is nothing illegal or improper with someone having contact with Julian Assange or WikiLeaks. Julian Assange is not a Russian asset and WikiLeaks is not a Russian propaganda organization. I understand that the US intelligence agencies insist otherwise but they are utterly unable to prove it. Its true in their minds because they want it to be.

Contact between Donald Trump Jr. and Julian Assange certainly does not constitute collusion with the Russians!

In fact Assange is a journalist publishing information given to him by sources just as they do at the Washington Post and the New York Times but Wikileaks record for accuracy and authenticity is far better.

Neither Donald Trump Jr. or Alexander Nix of Cambridge Analytica did anything inappropriate. Having tried so hard to drive the phony Russian collusion narrative to distract from their own Russian profiteering (Uranium One, Gazprom, Joule) they make casual contact with a first rate Journalist muckraker treason.

Alabama Woman Who Worked With Roy Moore as Teen Speaks Out=> I Never Once Felt Uncomfortable The Gateway Pundit

An Alabama woman who worked closely with Judge Roy Moore when she was a teen spoke to Conservative Tribune this week.

The woman says she believes Roy Moore is innocent and said, I always felt safe around him, I never once felt uncomfortable.

Conservative Tribune reported:

In an exclusive interview with an executive at Conservative Tribune, a woman in Alabama identified only as Beth has shared her account of working with Roy Moore as a teenager, and her story differs quite a bit from the narrative put forward by the liberal media. Beth gave permission for her remarks to be shared and the only changes made were to grammar and punctuation.

Yes, I absolutely believe (the) Judge is innocent! Beth declared. Ive known him and his family for years. I was a teenager when I first started working in his campaign. And he always honored and respected me and all the others. I always felt safe around him, I never once felt uncomfortable.

And even if I didnt know him personally, I would find it suspicious that these women are just now coming out with this, she continued. Hes been running for office for the past 17 years and been a judge for even longer. So why, if this did happen why didnt they come out about this before now? Theyve had plenty of chances.

I just find it odd with as many times as he has run for office over the past several years none of this has come out, she added. I dont think it is a coincidence that all this is being said one month before the election. Polls were showing Moore way ahead of Jones, then next thing you know all this poop is coming out.

Beth stated that she also worked on some of his other campaigns for office, though to a lesser extent than before, and noted that she stayed in touch with him and his family for years afterward, even volunteering her time at Moores Foundation of Moral Law.

He even tried to set me up with one of his lawyers that worked for him, Beth revealed. It did not work out, but I was close with them.

All this was years ago, but still I know him enough to know he is not like that, she said.

REPORT: Audio Recordings Show Russian Officials Suggested Bribery to Bill & Hillary Clinton in Exchange for Favors The Gateway Pundit

In an appearance Tuesday evening on Fox News program Hannity, author of Clinton Cash, Peter Schweizer told Sean Hannity that audio recordings reportedly show Russian officials suggesting they would be open to bribing Bill and Hillary Clinton in exchange for favors. 

Peter Schweitzer: We now have this whistle-blower that has come forward who reportedly has audio recordings of Russian officials talking about using bribery to get favors from the Clintons, giving donations to the Clinton Foundation. That has yet to appear, but I think that will be pretty strong.

Partial transcript as follows via Breitbart News:

HANNITY: Joining us now, the man who got the started, author of the book, Clinton Cash, Peter Schweizer, Fox News contributor, former deputy assistant to the President, Sebastian Gorka. Peter, you got this started, you watch this unfold today, and I want to get your initial reaction. I also want to talk about I want you to give us the money aspect to this as it relates to the Clintons, who paid who, when and where, and how active and involved were they in this deal?

SCHWEIZER: Well, look, Sean, Ive always felt the evidence was very clear. And I dont know that hesitation is at the Department of Justice. There were several facts that no one debates. Fact number one, you have the Kazakh uranium minister Moukhtar Dzhakishev in a 2010 video deposition describing in great detail how Bill and Hillary Clinton shook him down and shook down Kazakh officials to compel them to give uranium assets to Frank Giustra, who is the founder of Uranium One. Nobody disputes that. That is clear.

Anti-Abortion GOP Congress Shrugs as Program That Helps New Mothers Expires The Intercept

Barney Frank once quipped that Republicans who call themselves pro-life believe that life begins at conception and ends at birth.

Nowhere would that punchline land harder than on the current Congress, composed of lawmakers who are at once pushing past the boundaries of Roe v. Wade, while undermining a range of policies that would make life slightly less difficult for expectant and new mothers.

The GOP tax reform proposal initially came after the adoption tax credit, while Congress has allowed the childrens health insurance program to expire and, now, is doing the same for a program that funds nurses and social workers to coach at-risk new moms, beginning during pregnancy and lasting until the child turns 2 years old.

The programs have lapsed as Republicans struggle to find ways to pay for them, even as they gallop toward an unpaid-for series of corporate tax cuts that could cost the government trillions in lost revenue.

The lapsed program that has received the least attention is also one of the most effective. The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program was launched as a pilot program by the Bush administration, which then signed it into law after it was implemented as legislation by a Democratic Congress in 2008. It is routinely held up as a model of evidence-based policymaking, because the law sets an outcome Congress wants, but leaves it to people on the ground to get there and prove that they got the result they promised.

It began largely as a program involving nurses or social workers, but has expanded to other paraprofessionals who have been able to ease a new mom into the daunting world of parenting.

The program expired at the end of September due to congressional inaction and battles over its funding. Though MIECHV is relatively small, its part of a package of programs meant to help vulnerable children and families, along with the Childrens Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, which expired at the same time.

Nanochips And Smart Dust Dangerous New Face Of Human Microchipping Agenda Inflection Point

The Freedom Articles via Natural Health News

By Makia Freeman
Nanochips and Smart Dust are the new technological means for the advancement of the human microchipping agenda. Due to their incredibly tiny size, both nanochips and Smart dust have the capacity to infiltrate the human body, become lodged within, and begin to set up a synthetic network on the inside which can be remotely controlled from the outside. Needless to say, this has grave freedom, privacy and health implications, because it means the New World Order would be moving from controlling the outside world (environment/society) to controlling the inside world (your body). This article explores what the advent of nanochips and Smart dust could mean for you.

Different Forms of Control

Humanitys history is filled with examples of societies where the people were sharply divided into 2 categories: rulers and slaves. In the distant past, the slaves have usually been kept in place because the rulers had access to and control over the resources, such as money, food, water, weapons or other necessities of life (control of the environment).
In our more recent history, control was implemented not only by monopolizing resources but also via propaganda (control of the mind). This has manifested itself in many ways, e.g. the caste system in India (you must remain in your position on the hierarchical ladder for life), the royal bloodlines in Rome, the Middle East and Europe (who claimed an inherent and divine right to rule), the centralization of power in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia during the 1930s (where a single autocrat or a small committee decided the fate of millions), and finally in the West (especially in the US) with the advent of specialized PR and mind control...

Its Chaos Out There: A Cyclists Diary The Indypendent

Its all so fragile, this having a body and interacting with bikes and cars on the streets. Always so close to that point where you stop being a person and you become a corpse.

Out there, its chaos. Not chaos in a good way, not the self-managed chaos where strictures are cast aside and spaces for new forms of existence open up. Not Dionysian chaos. No, this is more of the run-into-the-person-in-front-of-you-at-the-red-light chaos. Trump America chaos. I got mine, to-hell with-everybody-else chaos. Fuck-you-pay-me chaos.

Tearing down First Avenue on my bicycle, Im always tempted to look up at the hospital room where my daughter was born, but a quick up-glance could be fatal. People jumping into the bike lane food cart workers, women in labor, various injured people dropped off by taxis they might as well be dropped from the sky. Outta the fucking bike lane! somebody shouts at a man hobbling towards the ambulatory entrance.

I went to Critical Mass events regularly in the early aughts. A swarm of cyclists would halt traffic. It was a way of protesting for alternative transit, for opening the city up outside of car culture. I stopped going sometime after the Republican National Convention came to town in 2004. The cops started sweating the event hard, cracking down and cracking heads. The mass arrests and brutality had the intended effect of deterring people. It got to the point where there would be more cops than bikers.

Still, when it was good, there was no feeling more liberating than being in the throes of cyclists, shutting down traffic on a street, then an avenue, maybe a bridge. It was really something to ride like that and see the city free of cars, to glimpse the possibilities.

Which driver is not tempted, merely by the power of his engine, to wipe out the vermin of the street, pedestrians, children and cyclists Theodor Adorno

The fleeting sense of power can be intoxicating. Theres this element of anarchic joy, it led to shouts of Join us and We are taking over. I used to marvel at the Critical Massers who would block off intersections, bikes held above their heads. What would happen if the drivers decided to call their bluff? I used to see this one guy I knew, right there at the intersection, matching his power against the cars. He was killed a few years later, at a protest in another country. He was braver than me. He put his body on the line and was killed for taking a risk. Ill always think of him there at the intersection, bike held over his head, sure that he would prevail.

Gen. Hayden Admits to CNN That China Sending Envoy to N. Korea Proves POTUS Trumps Effectiveness (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Former CIA and NSA chief General Michael Hayden joined CNNs Chris Cuomo Wednesday morning and praised President Trumps effectiveness following reports that China will send an envoy to North Korea. 

Hayden had this to say after Cuomo asked him if China sending an envoy to North Korea is a sign of President Trumps effectiveness:

I think the timing suggests thats true. So, youve got a bit of a ray of light, a breath of fresh air here with the Chinese trying to amp up there pressure on the North Koreans. We need to be realistic, all right? China is most interested in stability on the North Korean part, on the whole Korean peninsula. Theyre not too excited about change. I think we can rely on them to amp up the pressure a bit, to have Kim, the youngest, tone down the rhetoric. Maybe stop testing for a while. I dont think hes going there to point out that you need to give up these weapons.

A senior Chinese diplomat will visit North Korea from Friday as a special envoy of Chinese President Xi Jinping, Beijing said, although it did not say he was planning to discuss North Koreas nuclear and ballistic programs, reports Reuters.

Reuters reports:

China has repeatedly pushed for a diplomatic solution to the crisis, but in recent months has had only limited high-level exchanges with North Korea. The last time Chinas special envoy for North Korea visited the country was in February last year.

In a brief dispatch, the official Xinhua news agency said Song Tao, who heads the ruling Communist Partys external affairs department, would leave for North Korea on Friday.

He will inform the DPRK of the 19th CPC National Congress and visit the DPRK, Xinhua said on Wednesday, using the Norths official name and referring to Chinas recently concluded Communist Party Congress at which Xi further cemented his power.

News of this comes amid President Trumps return to Washington...

MBL, o defensor da liberdade. Desde que no seja com eles. The Intercept

Em um vdeo gravado em outubro, Salsicha, o mais novo expoente do MBL, respondeu a dvidas dos interessados em participar do 3 Congresso do MBL. Em uma delas, algum pergunta se intervencionistas militares sero bem-vindos e recebe essa resposta:

Todas as pessoas so bem-vindas. A gente acredita no dilogo e no bom debate.

Pois bem, no foi o que vi no evento realizado no ltimo fim de semana no luxuoso World Trade Center, considerado o maior complexo de negcios da Amrica Latina. O que vi foi o jornalista Denis Russo do Nexo, que assistia aos painis sem incomodar ningum, ser expulso pelo crime de portar um bloquinho de papel. Enquanto eu filmava o ocorrido com meu celular, um segurana me abordou e exigiu que eu apagasse o vdeo, caso contrrio eu tambm seria convidado a me retirar. Questionei brevemente, mas acabei acatando recuperar arquivos da lixeira uma tarefa simples.

A averso a quem era de fora daquele mundinho no ficou restrita aos corredores do evento. No palco, logo no primeiro painel do congresso, Renan dos Santos, lder e fundador do MBL, fez um alerta em alto e bom som:  

Se eventualmente vier algum com uma camerazinha querendo fazer perguntas, que est muito curioso sobre vocs, com bloquinho de notas Avisa a gente!

O que conseguimos registrar de melhor (ou, melhor, de pior) est no vdeo que acompanha este texto.
