VIDEO The Dems HATE This, The Not So Hidden Truth About The Republican Party

Why does the left continue pushing the same stereotypes?

 

Jan 15, 2018

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for nearly every advancement for minorities and women in U.S. history—and remains the champion of equality to this day.

VIDEO 8 Major Trump Wins, MSM HATES This – Leftist Toilet Mouths – Solid Proof Trump Has Not Lost His Mind

8 major Trump wins, the media HATES this

Jan  15, 2018

 

President Donald Trump has followed through on dozens of his campaign promises — and this list of eight of his major accomplishments is sure to enrage liberals.

During his first year in office, Trump has  successfully overhauled the country’s tax system, changed the U.S. posture abroad and upended the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrants. He has also won confirmation of a conservative Supreme Court justice and other federal judges — everyone of which he promised to do.

With all of his outstanding accomplishments during his first year in office, America awaits what is to come during his second year.

For all his rogue tendencies, Trump has shaped up as a largely conventional Republican president when measured by his promises kept and in motion.

The Twitter version of Trump may be jazzed with braggadocio about the size of his nuclear button and his “very stable genius.” But the ledger of actions taken is recognizable to Washington: mainstream Republican tax cuts, pro-business policy, curbs on environmental regulation and an approach to health care that’s been in the GOP playbook for years.

A look at some of his campaign promises and what’s happened with them:

#1 — TAXES

Trump and congressional Republicans delivered on an overhaul that substantially lowers corporate taxes and cuts personal income taxes, as promised. He 21 percent tax rate for corporations, a major drop from 35 percent. He did not eliminate the estate tax or the alternative minimum tax. but fewer people will be subject to those taxes.

___

#2 — TRADE

Trump made good on his promise to withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and to reopen the North American Free Trade Agreement in search of a better deal.

He’s let China off the hook, though, on his oft-repeated threat during the campaign to brand Beijing a currency manipulator, a step toward potentially hefty penalties on Chinese imports and a likely spark for a trade war.

“We’re like the piggy bank that’s being robbed,” he said of the trade relationship, which has tipped even more in China’s favor since. Trump now threatens trade punishment if China does not sufficiently cooperate in reining in North Korea.

Trump promised to impose a 35 percent tariff on goods from U.S. companies that ship production abroad. Instead, his tax plan aims to encourage companies to stay in the U.S. with the lower tax rate and to entice those operating abroad to come home by letting them repatriate their profits in the U.S. at a temporarily discounted rate.

 

___

#3 — IMMIGRATION

Candidate Trump rocked the political landscape when he proposed a temporary ban on all non-U.S. Muslims entering the country. While he’s long backed away from such talk, Trump has worked since his first days in office to impose new restrictions on tourists and immigrants, signing executive orders that would have made good on his anti-immigration promises had those orders not been blocked by courts.

He’s now succeeded in banning the entry of citizens from several Muslim-majority countries and in severely curbing refugee admissions. He’s tried to deny certain federal money for cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Trump is now deep in negotiations over an immigration deal that could deliver on other promises, including money for the border wall with Mexico and overhauling the legal immigration system to make it harder for immigrants to sponsor their families. That’s in exchange for extending protections for hundreds of thousands of young people brought to the country illegally as children.

 

___

#4 — ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Trump promised aggressive action on the energy front and has pursued that.

He announced his intention to take the U.S. out of the Paris climate-change accord. He gave swift approval to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines stalled by President Barack Obama, moved to shrink protected national monument lands in Utah and Arizona, and acted to lift restrictions on mining coal and coastal drilling for oil and natural gas.

A provision in the new tax law opens the long-protected Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.

As other countries turn harder toward green energy, Trump is making fossil fuels the centerpiece of his drive toward energy independence — a benchmark that Obama closed in on during an era of surging natural gas development.

___

#5 — HEALTH CARE

Probably nothing exemplifies frustrated ambition more than the Obama health law Republicans have been trying to dismantle ever since it was enacted in 2010.

Republicans took several runs at repealing and replacing the law last year, only to fall short. The December tax law, though, is knocking out a pillar. As of 2019, the requirement to carry health insurance or pay a fine will be gone.

Trump has come out with a proposed regulation to promote the sale of health plans across state lines. The goal is to make it easier for associations to sponsor plans that are cheaper than Affordable Care Act policies but don’t have to meet all consumer protection and benefit requirements of that law.

Insurance industry groups, patient groups and some state regulators are wary of the idea and see little chance it can make more than a dent in the ranks of the uninsured (nearly 30 million). Easing restrictions on the sale of health insurance across state lines has been a longtime mainstream conservative goal.

 

___

#6 — ‘AMERICA FIRST’ ABROAD

Trump promised swift victory over the Islamic State group. Over the past year, U.S. and coalition-backed local forces in Iraq and Syria did deal a crushing blow to IS, ousting the militants from most of the territory they once held. The success built on the strategy of the Obama administration to work with and through local forces. Trump did relax restrictions on the number of U.S. troops who could be deployed both to Iraq and Syria, and that aided the final push.

The Pentagon has yet to see the massive increase in military spending that Trump has promised. That still might come, but the protracted struggle to pass a Pentagon budget of whatever size has hurt U.S. military readiness, defense officials say.

More broadly, Trump’s “America First” ethic has been reflected in his pressure on member NATO countries to step up their own military spending, in his wariness of international accords and in the seeming drift from a diplomatic tradition of promoting U.S. democratic values abroad.

Past presidents made common cause with authoritarian figures, and their promotion of values could be cursory. But Trump has lavished praise on select strongmen, from the Philippines to China to Russia and beyond.

Despite railing against the Iran nuclear deal as a candidate, Trump has so far passed up opportunities to get the U.S. out of it. On the other hand, he rolled back part of Obama’s opening to Cuba. He also moved forward on recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a goal that both parties have embraced in their platforms for decades but never acted on.

 

___

#7 — INFRASTRUCTURE

Trump pledged a $1 trillion effort to rebuild the country’s airports, roads, bridges and other infrastructure. As with his tax plan, it’s shaping up to be significant. Trump’s idea appears to involve using federal tax dollars to leverage state government and private spending, not to mount a New Deal-era explosion of federal projects.

___

#8 — VETERANS

Having previously criticized the Department of Veterans Affairs as the “most corrupt,” Trump delivered on one campaign promise by signing legislation to make it easier for VA employees to be fired for misconduct.

At least for now, its impact in bringing accountability to the department remains unclear. The pace of VA firings during Obama’s last budget year was higher than during Trump’s first, which covered the first nine months of his administration.

Other Trump initiatives announced with fanfare in 2017 remain far from complete or have been limited because of questions about rising government costs: a multibillion-dollar overhaul of electronic medical records, expanded access to doctors to reduce wait times and a goal of hiring 1,000 additional mental health counselors in the first year. The VA has been clouded by a 2014 scandal at the Phoenix VA hospital in which employees manipulated records to hide appointment delays.

Leftist Toilet Mouths Condemn Trump as They Corrupt Nation

Leftist Toilet Mouths Condemn Trump as They Corrupt Nation

President Trump denies having used a vulgar term last Thursday to describe dysfunctional Third World countries. Yet there’s no denying that the leftist media, believing he did, responded by repeatedly disgorging the term in a childish orgy of decadence. Of course, the media no doubt think they’re damaging Trump — but they’re actually damaging society.

Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to describe such places. So to show us how bad such language is, the Crude News Network (CNN), for example, used it at least 36 times on Thursday. It’s sort of like inveighing against animal abuse and then bludgeoning dozens of dogs to death on air to prove your point.

Let’s be clear about a few other matters:

1. You probably wouldn’t lose money betting that all the leftists now complaining about the toilet term use vulgarity themselves off air.

2. In reality, most media leftists actually have mouths resembling sewers.

3. It’s the Left that, mainly via entertainment, has coarsened society, defining deviancy downwards and normalizing vulgarity. This is why the younger generations now use profanity, publicly, as a matter of course.

4. This is very, very destructive to society.

Why it’s destructive I’ll explain momentarily. Note, however, that this article isn’t about immigration, which I take a hard line on. Something else we should take a hard line on, however, is our increasing tolerance for public crudity.

Let’s begin with what the Father of Our Nation and first president, George Washington, wrote about vulgarity in a 1776 order:

The General is sorry to be informed that the foolish, and wicked practice, of profane cursing and swearing (a Vice heretofore little known in an American Army) is growing into fashion; he hopes the officers will, by example, as well as influence, endeavour to check it, and that both they, and the men will reflect, that we can have little hopes of the blessing of Heaven on our Arms, if we insult it by our impiety, and folly; added to this, it is a vice so mean and low, without any temptation, that every man of sense, and character, detests and despises it.

In point of fact, few of us had great-grandparents who wouldn’t have been at least somewhat appalled at today’s tawdry tongues. And whatever a few of them might have occasionally uttered in private, they certainly wouldn’t use bad language in polite company (does this even still exist?) or around children. Now note that every time we use profanity publicly — on the Internet, for example — we are using it in front of children.

This raises the matter of the blessed asterisk and its cloaking cousins. Many will ask what the point is, since kids have already heard every vulgar word we’re obscuring. Yet this is a bit like saying: If children know about serial killers, what’s the big deal about inundating them with snuff films?

We (should) use asterisks in print, bleep out words in broadcast and generally obscure the obscene because doing so sends an important message:

The obscured things are wrong.

Opening up the closet of the coarse, crude, and carnal sends the message that such things are okay. Sure, kids have heard bad language. But the point is to not normalize and legitimize it through continual and cavalier adult use. The point is to instill in the young virtue, good moral habits, not the bad ones called vice. And habits are created via repetition — a fact that should make us think twice about on-air repetition of vulgarity.

Instinctively, many of us still sense vulgarity’s ugliness. This ugliness is best illustrated by putting it in the prettiest of mouths: Would you find a group of nine-year-olds cursing like a drunken sailor an uplifting scene? Would you think they were on a good moral path?

Well, as poet William Wordsworth put it, “The Child is father of the Man”; a youth’s well-learned dark lessons become adult transgressions. Yet some will still wonder why this matters, maintaining that vulgarities are “just words” (actually, they’re unjust words). For an in-depth exposition on this, I strongly urge you to read “Cussing & Cultural Decay,” a magazine piece I penned last year that I believe is the definitive short work on the subject (it’s hard to find online but is available here).

Put simply, though, an immoral society cannot yield a moral government. Echoing many great thinkers, British philosopher Edmund Burke warned, “It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.” (The Founding Fathers often expressed the same principle in different words.) Now, do people who habitually disgorge vulgarity — not to mention indulge decadence in general — strike you as men of temperate minds? Or do you think such habits reflect fetters-forging passions?

Too many suppose we can compartmentalize our virtue and vice. Like believing we can continually pollute one side of a lake yet swim in pure waters on the other, we act as if impurity intensely indulged in certain areas won’t bleed over into areas we’d like to keep pristine. But just as former labor secretary Lynn Martin said in 1992 that “[y]ou can’t be one kind of man and another kind of president,” we can’t be one kind of people and have another kind of polity. Do you really think we can embrace profound vice in language, entertainment and sexuality but then enjoy that for which profound virtue is necessary: fiscal restraint, respect for rights, honesty in government affairs, dutiful law-enforcement agencies, a Constitution-limited judiciary, sound schooling and truth-oriented media? As our second president, John Adams, put it, “Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private [virtue], and public virtue is the only foundation of republics.”

Thus is it distressing that even some conservative media outlets now lower standards, using terms such as a**, c**p, s***storm and WTF (with everyone knowing the acronym’s meaning). Perhaps they’re not mindful that it was yesterday’s leftists who normalized such vulgarity. Perhaps they don’t care. But it’s why I’ve long said that conservatives are the caboose to liberals’ engine of cultural decay. It’s why, ultimately, they lose political wars. For politics is downstream of culture, and conservatives never saw a culture-war battle they couldn’t lose.

As for Trump, his alleged potty-mouth moment was reported by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), a scoundrel with a history of lying about White House meetings, according to Daily Wire. But whatever the president said, he said in private. This is far different from Durbin, who helped make the story public and prominent. It’s far different from ex-California Democratic Party chairman John Burton, who led a “F*** Donald Trump!” chant at California’s Democratic Party convention in Sacramento early last year. And it’s far different from CNN and the rest of the effluent-stream media, which, like an exhibitionist, just revel in the chance to flaunt publicly what excites them privately.

They are despicable. May they be the first to drown in the wave of tyranny they invite.

Restoring the American dream isn’t nuts, and neither is our president.

Someone tell that to liberals still suffering from “Trump derangement syndrome” and left-wing media whose airwaves were chock-full of anti-Trump segments again this week, telling us – in an all-time low – that our duly elected president is mentally unstable and unfit to hold the highest office in the land.

Clearly, Democrats and their friends in the media have run out of bullets when this is all they’ve got to try to derail the current administration.

If President Donald Trump is indeed mentally unfit, how did he build a multibillion-dollar empire and create tens of thousands of jobs throughout his remarkable business career? How did he become a top TV star with his hit show, “The Apprentice”? Or perhaps progressives can explain how an outsider like Trump – with zero political experience – beat 16 well-qualified Republican opponents and did so with only a fraction of the money and resources available to the Clinton and Bush dynasties.

Even the most gullible among us know that it just doesn’t add up.

Unhinged politicians aren’t able to add $7 trillion in value to the stock market, create more than 2 million new jobs and pass significant tax reform as President Trump has done over the past 12 months. Nor do psychotic politicians possess the ability to crush the Islamic State, rebuild our military, reduce illegal border crossings by 40 percent and implement such fiscally sound policies that the Dow Jones and other indexes spike to historic levels. It’s no secret that while partisan pundits were assailing the president’s mental fitness on TV this week, the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed above 25,000, 2,700 and 7,000, respectively, for the first time.

If only every politician could be this “crazy,” we’d actually solve our nation’s problems and restore the American dream.

We could restore that dream for African-Americans, who, under Trump’s leadership, have seen a 6.8 percent unemployment rate, the lowest level since the Labor Department began tracking the statistic in 1972. And Latinos and hundreds of thousands of other American workers across industries received bonuses and other work-related benefits this past Christmas thanks to Trump and congressional Republicans’ tax bill. All of this doesn’t even include the tax breaks on the horizon for working families.

It’s worth noting that scores of Democratic lawmakers, including Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, told voters the Republican tax plan would benefit the rich. Then, on Thursday, Walmart announced that because the tax-reform legislation cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, it’s raising the minimum wage to $11 an hour for all entry-level employees, expanding maternity and parental leave, and giving out bonuses – benefiting 1 million workers.

But that’s not all our “deranged” Republican president has accomplished.

On the human side, every parent from Bangor to Seattle knows that raising smart, grounded and philanthropic children who are highly successful in their own right is not an easy feat by any means. Yet Trump has somehow managed – in all his media-proscribed “craziness” – to raise five exceptional children.

If only all parents could be this “unhinged,” we’d all raise such equally impressive offspring.

That’s something the morally bankrupt media – which refuse to give Trump any credit for his achievements – can’t understand. But no matter. Americans know that fatter paychecks, increased opportunity and keeping our homeland safe from gangs, drug dealers and other criminals via smart immigration reform aren’t loony, despite the political noise and nonsense coming out of Washington’s echo chamber these days.

It’s all the more reason Republicans are on track to maintain their congressional majorities in the November midterms.

Punditry be damned.

Probe: Drug Dealers Peddling To Kids On Facebook – Facebook: ‘We’re In Charge’

Probe: Drug Dealers Peddling To Kids On Facebook

 

Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.

Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.

Drug dealers are openly peddling marijuana and cocaine to children on social media, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, an investigation by a London newspaper has found.

The tech giants are being accused of failing to shut down “blatant” law-breaking amid calls for tougher sanctions, reports the Daily Mail of London.

In 2012, WND published a four-part series of investigative reports exposing the widespread distribution of child pornograhy via Facebook.

On Monday, Britain’s Sky News reported more than 1,000 teenagers are being charged with spreading sex videos via Facebook in Denmark. Danish Police said some 800 boys and 200 girls were involved in spreading the explicit material from 2015 until the fall of 2017.

Facebook also has been under fire for censorship. Last week, for example, as WND reported, a crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the “true story” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a “right” to abortion was blocked by Facebook.

In the Daily Mail’s investigation, a reporter posing as a teenage boy found dealers on Facebook willing to supply him with drugs even when they knew he was still at school.

Over the weekend, British members of Parliament called for the Internet giants to face tougher sanctions over the continued failure to root out criminal activity.

“We want the U.K. to be the safest place in the world to be online,” a government spokesman said. “Anything that is illegal offline should be illegal online. We encourage people to report [anything] concerning to the police as well as … report such images to the app providers themselves.”

Earlier this month, a report by the British charity Young Addaction warned that children as young as 13 were using social media to buy drugs online.

The report, noting a big rise in the trend in the past 18 months, said dealers were using hashtags and emojis to advertise their wares.

A Daily Mail reporter found drugs offered for sale on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter within five minutes.

One dealer told a Mail reporter posing as a schoolboy to send a payment via the Post Office and he would deliver to his address.

The undercover reporter emailed back: “Will it be well disguised because I don’t want my mum to notice it if it arrives while I’m at school?”

The dealer replied, “Yeah mate it’s well packaged and sealed.”

The Mail said it took less than two minutes to find a U.S. dealer willing to ship 150 ecstasy (MDMA) pills to London.

Possession of Class B cannabis in the U.K. is a crime, and dealers can face up to 14 years in prison.

Nevertheless, the Mail reported, drug dealing online was increasing and Internet firms were “turning a blind eye,” according to youth drug worker Nick Hickmott of the charity Young Addaction.

He said Instagram was the “preferred choice” among cannabis dealers, and the dealing online is “just so blatant.”

“It is unbelievable that it is allowed to operate like that. They are the only ones that have the power to police it. If these big multimedia companies wanted to do something about it they could.”

Labour MP Helen Goodman said it’s “yet another example of social media firms denying the power and influence they have and failing to act as responsible citizens.”

“It will reach the point with these social media companies where there are so many problems that the government must … start looking at both legal changes and proper enforcement,” she said.

A Facebook spokesman said: “We encourage our community to report any activity like this using our reporting tools so we can quickly remove it.

“We recently announced we’ll be doubling our security team to 20,000 people over the next year to improve how we detect and remove content that shouldn’t be on Facebook.”

Instagram also said it encouraged users to report illegal activity, and Twitter said all users must agree not to use the site for unlawful purposes.

“By using Twitter, you agree to comply with all applicable laws governing your online conduct and content,” the spokesman said.

Facebook Reminds Publishers: ‘We’re In Charge’

16 Jan 2018 by Allum Bokhari

Facebook has rolled out yet another change to its newsfeed, which they say will give greater visibility to posts from “friends and family.” The subtext is that it will decrease visibility to pages run by publishers and news sites, escalating the social media giant’s running battle with the publishing industry.

The influence of Facebook over the success or failure of publishers and news sites has expanded astronomically over the past few years. Consider this: at the inauguration of President Trump, Fox News’ coverage attracted the most viewers on cable news – an average of 8.8 million. But their Facebook video of the same event attracted almost twice that number: 16 million. In 2017, the most-shared news video on the platform was viewed no fewer than 67 million times. Facebook now has the power to make or break publishers.

If the latest newsfeed change is anything to go by, they’re now keen on breaking them. The change is going to slow the spread of content from all media outlets across Facebook, in a move that The Hill has speculated may be due to the pressure the platform is under to stop the flow of “fake news.” Given that attempts to target individual publishers can lead to charges of political bias, something which in the past almost led to a Senate-led investigation of Facebook, the platform might be trying to get around the problem by diminishing the reach of all publishers equally.

This means that Breitbart News’ 3.7 million Facebook fans will have to manually navigate to our Facebook page in order to find our articles, instead of having them automatically appear in their news feeds. They will not have a choice in the matter: Facebook will not allow users to stick with the old system, even if they prefer it.

With Facebook’s change threatening to rob news sites and publishers (including Breitbart News) of potentially millions of views, the change only further underscores Facebook’s extraordinary influence over the media landscape. No other organization in history, save perhaps the politburo of the Soviet Union during the era of the Warsaw Pact, has had this much influence over so many news outlets at the same time.

Any influence over news is also influence over politics, which is why Facebook’s initial ban, and then reinstatement of a pro-life movie caused such a stir. Facebook, with over 2 billion active users, has become essential to the promotion of political causes and content. Like it or not, that gives them the power to both promote or crush grassroots movements, should they choose.

Much of today’s news coverage and political pressure concerns the alleged affects of Facebook on American elections, particularly with regards to the ongoing Russia panic. But Facebook has just as much power beyond America’s borders: the Philippines has nearly 41 million active Facebook users between the ages of 18 and 65. Those are election-swinging numbers, and in a country where the President’s political views, like Trump’s, are pretty far from Mark Zuckerberg’s.

Facebook initially tested some of its changes to its newsfeed in late 2017, in a six countries. One of these was Cambodia, a country where opposition politicians are essentially barred from broadcast media, and rely on the internet to develop a serious presence. Facebook’s changes to newsfeed almost killed independent content creators in Cambodia, and indisputably strengthened the authoritarian ruling party.

That’s why the comparison to the Soviet Union is relevant. The propaganda ministries of the USSR didn’t just influence the news in Soviet Russia, but in Poland, Hungary, the GDR and even Cuba. Facebook’s influence over the news is, if anything, even more extensive. And whether they like it or not, they can now choose to strengthen the political establishments of foreign countries – to the point of nearly snuffing out opposition media in Cambodia’s case – or weaken them.

It’s not just about authoritarian regimes in Asia though. If Facebook retreats from news, removing the potential for new publishers, news sites, and content creators to grow, it is closing the door on a system that allowed new voices to thrive.  It is, in effect, handing power back to the political establishment and old-school media gatekeepers. Having experienced a brief loss of power, and a populist rising tide, expect those gatekeepers to be more controlling than ever before.

Facebook has taken a financial hit from its decision. The company’s stock fell by 4.5 percent upon the announcement of its newsfeed changes, personally shaving $3.3 billion off Mark Zuckerberg’s personal net worth. That suggests that Facebook is happy to suffer financial pain in order to step back from their de facto role as the megaphone of new publishers.

So far, politicians in both the E.U. and the United States have been pressuring Facebook to increase, rather than decrease its censorship. Germany wants Facebook to follow its draconian hate speech laws, while politicians in the U.S. want the platform to tackle so-called “Russian meddling.” Hopefully Facebook’s conception of a “Russian bot” is more nuanced than Twitter, where engineers believe that any account tweeting about “God, guns and America” must be a Russian agent.

But Facebook’s real power lies in what it suppresses, not what it allows. With its latest newsfeed change. publishers are about to get a reminder of just how much power the social network currently wields over them.

GPS Fusion Unsure – FBI Probe Into Russian Uranium Bribes Concealed By Obama DOJ; Mueller, McCabe, Rosenstein

Friday’s 11-count indictment of former uranium transportation company executive, Mark Lambert, was the latest in a series of DOJ prosecutions involving individuals linked to the Russian nuclear industry and the Uranium One deal.

asdasd
Mark Lambert

According to the indictment, Lambert and others at Transport Logistics International (TLI) engaged in several counts of bribery, kickbacks and money laundering with Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure business advantages with TENEX – a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin’s state-owned energy company which bought Uranium One.

TLI would have ostensibly transported all of the uranium from the U1 deal, were it not for an FBI undercover mole buried deep within the Russian nuclear industry who gathered extensive evidence of corruption.

What many don’t realize is that Lambert’s Friday indictment is not the first linked to the Uranium One deal.

In fact, Robert Mueller’s FBI had been investigating the scheme since at least 2008 – with retiring Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assigned to the ongoing investigation which was hidden from the Committee on Foreign Investments in the Untid States (CFIUS). Had they known, the committee never would have approved the Uranium One deal with TENEX’s parent company, Rosatom. 

Four individuals were eventually prosecuted and given plea agreements after the Uranium One deal was approved. The prosecuting DOJ attorneys? Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and top Mueller investigator in the Trump-Russia probe, Andrew Weissman – who praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for defying Trump.

Unsurprisingly, all four indicted individuals were handed extremely light sentences, none of which made headlines.

The judge? Theodore Chuang – an Obama appointee who went to Harvard Law at the same time as Obama, advised Hillary Clinton as “Counselor on detail to the United States Department of State,” and just so happened to strike down Trump’s “Travel Ban” Executive Order. Chuang’s wife, Jacinta Ma served as a senior policy advisor to Michelle Obama. 

Independent researcher Imperator Rex has neatly tied it all together for your edification on Twitter:

 

Which again begs the question, who’s watching the watchers?

Fusion GPS Founder: Not Sure If Steele Paid Sources for Trump Hoax Dossier

16 Jan 2018 by Aaron Klein

TEL AVIV — In testimony released publicly last week, the founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS claimed that he did not know whether the former British spy who compiled the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump paid any of his purported sources.

Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former intelligence agent, to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier. Steele later conceded in court documents that part of his work still needed to be verified.

The prospect of Steele paying his purported sources raises the possibility that funds from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign found their way into the hands of former and possibly current members of the Russian government as well as the Kremlin’s intelligence services.

One “source” cited in the Fusion GPS document is a “senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure” – meaning an individual who purportedly served in the Russian Foreign Ministry at the time the dossier was produced. If the source is not fabricated, he or she may still be serving in the Russian government. Another quoted “source” was “a former top-level intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin.”

In October, the Washington Post reported that in April 2016, attorney Marc E. Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie retained Fusion GPS to conduct the anti-Trump work on behalf of both the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Through Perkins Coie, Clinton’s campaign and the DNC continued to fund Fusion GPS until October 2016, days before Election Day, the Post reported.

While it is not clear how much the Clinton campaign or the DNC paid Fusion GPS, the UK Independent, citing campaign finance records, reported that the Clinton campaign doled out $5.6 million to Perkins Coie from June 2015 to December 2016. Records show that since November 2015, the DNC paid the law firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting.”

In August 22 testimony released last week and reviewed in full by Breitbart News, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn R. Simpson denied knowledge of whether Steele paid his alleged sources.

Here is a transcript of the relevant section of the testimony:

QUESTION: To the best of your knowledge, did Mr. Steele pay any of his sources or sub sources in the memoranda for information?

SIMPSON: I don’t know. I think there’s been a little bit of confusion I would like to clear up. Some people were saying that he was paying people for information. I don’t know whether he does or not, but that’s not basically how I understand field operations to work. You commission people to gather information for you rather than sort of paying someone for a document or to sit for an interview or something like that. That’s not how I understand it works.

QUESTION: To make sure I understand, are you saying you don’t pay for particular information, you would have an established financial arrangement with someone?

SIMPSON: If he did at all, but I did not ask and he did not share that information. He did not invoice me for any such.

Former acting CIA Director Michael Morell, who currently works at the Hillary Clinton-tied Beacon Global Strategies LLC, previously revealed that he “learned” that Steele paid some of the purported sources cited in the dossier.

Morell serves as senior counselor at Beacon Strategies. Beacon was founded by Phillippe Reines, who served as Communications Adviser to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state. From 2009-2013, Reines also served in Clinton’s State Department as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications. Reines is the managing director of Beacon.

NBC News reported on comments made by Morell at an event last March sponsored by the Cipher Brief intelligence website. Those comments take on renewed significance in light of the disclosures about the origins of Fusion GPS’s funding of the controversial dossier.

“I had two questions when I first read it,” Morell stated of Steele’s dossier for Fusion GPS. “One was, How did Chris talk to these sources? I have subsequently learned that he used intermediaries.”

Morell then made the comments about Steele allegedly paying his purported sources.

Morell stated: “And then I asked myself, why did these guys provide this information, what was their motivation? And I subsequently learned that he paid them. That the intermediaries paid the sources and the intermediaries got the money from Chris.

“And that kind of worries me a little bit because if you’re paying somebody, particularly former FSB [Russian intelligence] officers, they are going to tell you truth and innuendo and rumor, and they’re going to call you up and say, ‘Hey, let’s have another meeting, I have more information for you,’ because they want to get paid some more.

“I think you’ve got to take all that into consideration when you consider the dossier.”

Besides Morell’s comments, Vanity Fair last March published an extensive article on the origins of the dossier that reported Steele had a history of paying sources.

The article stated:

And so, as Steele threw himself into his new mission, he could count on an army of sources whose loyalty and information he had bought and paid for over the years. There was no safe way he could return to Russia to do the actual digging; the vengeful FSB. would be watching him closely. But no doubt he had a working relationship with knowledgeable contacts in London and elsewhere in the West, from angry émigrés to wheeling-and-dealing oligarchs always eager to curry favor with a man with ties to the Secret Service, to political dissidents with well-honed axes to grind.

‘Devil Incarnate’: Predator Bill And ‘S***Hole’ Foundation

 

Actor James Woods (Photo: Flickr/The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas)

Actor and producer James Woods is mercilessly scorching former President Bill Clinton as “Haiti’s devil incarnate,” accusing Clinton and his “crooked family” of destroying the poor island nation after it was devastated by a horrific earthquake in 2010.

“This is how #BillClinton and his horrid criminal cohorts destroyed #Haiti,” Woods tweeted Sunday, sharing a video about the issue. “The ONLY ‘s—hole’ part of Haiti was Bill Clinton’s involvement, he and his crooked family. Bill Clinton was Haiti’s devil incarnate.”

James-Woods-Clinton-TWA man in the video explains:

It’s more than true. The money is more than $6 billion. You see, after the earthquake, countries around the world donate billions of dollars. The amount was much larger than $6 billion, and Bill Clinton was in charge of the money. And not only people around the world but also American celebrities donated a lot of money to rebuild Haiti. And hundreds of homes were destroyed after the earthquake. If you can believe, people are still living under tents. That’s unacceptable.

Not only they held the money, they kept the money. But Haiti has enough resources for them to be very comfortable. Haiti has oil, more oil than Venezuela. Nobody is talking about it. Haiti has gold. We have one of the largest gold mines in the Caribbean. Nobody is saying anything about our gold. Who do you think is in charge of our gold right now? The contract?

Tony Rodham, Hillary Clinton’s brother. He’s got a 26-year contract.

Also, Haiti used to produce our own rice. We didn’t have to buy rice overseas. Bill Clinton destroyed our rice so his brother can sell rice from Arkansas.

They’ve done a lot of things. Right now, if there’s a millionaire or a billionaire who wants to do business in Haiti, they cannot do anything unless they check with the Clintons. The Clintons are the ones running Haiti.

Woods followed up that tweet with a photo of Bill Clinton standing below the Clinton Foundation logo, which had been Photoshopped to read “Sh–hole Foundation.”

Woods-CF-TW2Woods’ comments come only days after WND reported that the Twittersphere had rebuked Chelsea Clinton for lecturing President Trump after the president reportedly asked senators why the U.S. keeps bringing in migrants from “sh–hole” countries like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

Chelsea tweeted to Trump Thursday: “Mr. President, immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and 54 countries in Africa likely helped build your buildings. They’ve certainly helped build our country. cc @POTUS.”

But Chelsea apparently forgot that her parents are accused of helping to leave hundreds of earthquake-ravaged Haitians homeless.

Twitter users quickly pointed out that the Clintons’ organization, the Clinton Foundation, reportedly scammed Haiti out of recovery donations after its horrific 2010 earthquake and, in that same year, was said to have paid for Chelsea’s $3 million luxurious wedding to Marc Mevinsky on July 31, 2010.

Some Twitter responses included:

  • “Haiti also helped pay for your wedding.” – Cherie
  • “@ChelseaClinton please stop!! #Haiti got robbed by the @ClintonFdn and @Hillary Clinton.” – Carlos Maldonado
  • “All of a sudden, the Clintons care about Haiti?” – B.T. Samuel
  • “You’re one to talk about being kind to Haiti. Ask your parents how much money they made through the corrupt Clinton Foundation at the expense of the Haitian people.” – Tom Brennan
  • “So how much Clinton Foundation money that came from charitable donations went to pay for your wedding? Also if the Clinton Foundation was doing such good work, then why hasn’t any improvement been seen in Haiti?” – Deplorable Kathie
  • “You’re right, Chelsea. Besides, who would your family steal from if not impoverished nations? I guess there’s always the American people you can continue to rob.” – Loren F. 
  • “The Haitian people love the Clintons. That’s why they literally protested against the Clintons for looting their country.” – Paul Joseph Watson
  • “@HillaryClinton @BillClinton, if you are concerned about Haiti, give them the money you owe them! #CorruptToTheCore.” – Todd Mirkin
  •  “The earthquake in 2010 was the worst disaster to devastate Haiti until the Bushes & Clintons came in there to give ‘relief.’ That’s when it became a s–thole. I still wonder what happened to all those poor orphans. Chelsea, did u get ur wedding covered by the donations?” – Tracking-Wabbit

A WikiLeaks email dump in November 2016 revealed Chelsea likely used money from the Clinton Foundation to bankroll her big wedding, complete with two extravagant Vera Wang gowns and held at the lavish Astor Courts Estate in Rhinebeck, New York. The allegations were made by Doug Band, a former top aide to Bill Clinton and a former Clinton Global Initiative board member.

But after news of the accusations concerning the Clinton Foundation, Haiti aid and Chelsea’s wedding broke, Bill Clinton apparently had enough.

“No Clinton Foundation funds – dedicated to Haiti or otherwise – were used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding,” Clinton tweeted on Jan. 13, along with a link to a Washington Post story. “It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc.”

 

Bill-Clinton-Haiti-TWAs WND reported, in one Jan. 1, 2012, message, Band told John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman, that Chelsea was investigating CGI and the Clinton Foundation’s use of money. Chelsea apparently mentioned her investigation to one of former President George W. Bush’s daughters.

Band wrote: “I just received a call from a close friend of (William Jefferson Clinton) who said that [Chelsea Clinton] told one of the (George W. Bush) kids that she is conducting an internal investigation of money within the foundation from CGI to the foundation.

“The bush kid then told someone else who then told an operative within the republican party.

“I have heard more and more chatter of CVC and (Bari Lurie, chief of staff to Chelsea Clinton at the Clinton Foundation) talking about lots of what is going on internally to people. Not smart,” he wrote.

In his reply, Podesta called Band’s comments an “understatement.”

Band responded: ‘I learned from the best. The investigation into her getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade, taxes on money from her parents … I hope that you will speak to her and end this. Once we go down this road …”

Band-email-Clinton-weddingBand also complained about Chelsea being “a spoiled brat” and “going to Daddy” to get her way and the Clinton Foundation’s alleged use of its financial resources to fund the big wedding.

Emails concerning Chelsea’s wedding were famously deleted from Hillary Clinton’s private server.

As for Bill Clinton’s claim that Clinton Foundation funds were never used to fund Chelsea’s wedding?

Woods simply isn’t buying it.

The actor tweeted: “You were impeached for perjury. Zip it.”

Lawsuit Puts Bull’s-Eye On Mueller’s Communications

A veteran Washington courtroom fighter, Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, confirmed Monday he has filed a lawsuit that puts special counsel Robert Mueller’s communications with the media in a bull’s-eye.

“Robert Mueller and his staff, who are alleged to have illegally leaked grand jury information to damage the president, his family and associates, have thus far been untouched by the inept and inert Justice Department, run by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who appears afraid that he himself may be indicted by Mueller for alleged Russian collusion and obstruction of justice,” Klayman said.

“Freedom Watch is not afraid and is doing the job of my former alma mater, which has regrettably become the ‘Department of Prosecutorial Misconduct and Injustice.’ I will not rest until Robert Mueller and his partisan leftist prosecutors are removed and replaced with an honest and ethical special counsel and staff, who will not abuse their authority for political purposes, but instead expeditiously conduct and conclude this Russian collusion investigation on the merits before more harm is done to the nation.”

His lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, is against Mueller, the DOJ and the FBI.

The action seeks a court order stating the defendants “have failed to make bona fide, good faith determinations about whether they will comply with Freedom Watch’s request” for information.

Sign the precedent-setting petition supporting Trump’s call for an independent prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton!

Nor have defendants produced any records responsive to Freedom Watch’s request, indicated when any responsive record will be produced, or demonstrated that specific responsive records are exempt, he said.

Klayman had asked for “any and all documents and records … that refer or relate with regard to communications to and from the media, domestic and foreign, concerning the activities of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and/or his staff as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, concerning the investigation of alleged Russian collusion and related matters concerning the Trump presidential campaign and the Trump transition team with the print, Internet, social media and radio and television networks.”

Klayman, a former federal prosecutor, is seeking “communications by and between the media and the Office of the Special Counsel of Robert Mueller.”

He previously filed complaints with the Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility and inspector general demanding an investigation into allegations of incessant criminal grand jury leaks by Mueller and his staff, as well as their conflicts of interest “as Democrat partisans bent on destroying the Trump presidency.”

The agencies ignored his requests so he filed suit in federal court asking for a writ of mandamus ordering that OPR and IG proceed with this ethics investigation.

That complaint presently is before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Last week, WND reported Klayman was lobbying to be appointed to prosecute the Obamas and Clintons.

His activism has spanned decades.

He sued the National Security Agency and won in district court. He sued to get Barack Obama’s birth certificate. He sued Hugo Chavez on behalf of torture victims. He sued journalists. He sued the Taliban and al-Qaida. He sued Cuba and won a multimillion-dollar judgment. He sued to get then-President Obama deported.

Now he’s obtained on a petition the signatures of more than 11,000 people who want him named special counsel to investigate the Clintons, Uranium One and Fusion GPS.

He has filed a separate legal action that seeks to remove Mueller as special counsel.

“Only a special counsel can investigate and bring strong criminal charges over these scandals and I am the person to do this. In all modesty, I am the only lawyer who has the guts to finally bring the Clintons and Obama and his fellow criminals to justice, indict them and have them thrown in prison for the rest of their lives,” he explains.

Mueller was appointed to look into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. After a year, he’s produced no evidence, and the only charges so far have been for “process” crimes rather than allegations underlying the investigation.

But the Uranium One deal, which handed over one-fifth of U.S. uranium holdings to a Russian-government-owned company, directly connected Hillary Clinton and Russia. In the Fusion GPS scandal, the opposition research firm commissioned a former British spy, at Democratic Party expense, to create the infamous “dossier” believed to be at the heart of the Russia-collusion allegations.

Jeff Bezos donates $33 million for DACA scholarships

  • Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and owner of The Washington Post, recently donated $33 million to a scholarship fund for illegal immigrant students.
  • The donation is the largest ever received by TheDream.US, and according to Bezos will “fund 1,000 college scholarships for Dreamers.”

Jan 15, 2018 by   Eduardo Neret Florida Campus Correspondent

 

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently donated millions of dollars to TheDream.US, a national scholarship fund for illegal immigrant students.

The billionaire owner of The Washington Post and his wife donated $33 million to the group, which supports DACA recipients, marking the largest donation in the organization’s history.

“MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today’s Dreamers by funding these scholarships.”   

“MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today’s Dreamers by funding these scholarships,” Bezos remarked in a press release, which noted that his donation will “fund 1,000 college scholarships for Dreamers.”

“He landed in this country alone and unable to speak English,” Bezos continued, speaking of his father who immigrated to the U.S. when he was 16. “With a lot of grit and determination—and the help of some remarkable organizations in Delaware—my dad became an outstanding citizen, and he continues to give back to the country that he feels blessed him in so many ways.”

According to CNBC, Bezos joined 100 other business leaders in sending a letter in support of DACA to congressional leaders, with Tim Cook of Apple, Satya Nadella of Microsoft, Sundar Pichai of Google, and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook also signing their names to letter.

“We write to urge Congress to act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are currently living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so,” the letter states. “The imminent termination of the DACA program is creating an impending crisis for workforces across the country.”

TheDream.US offers two scholarships—one that provides up to $80,000 for a bachelor’s degree and another that awards between $14,500 and $29,000 for those who have already completed an associates degree program.

The organization’s National Scholarship is offered to individuals with DACA or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) who have graduated high school or community college, while its Opportunity Scholarship is specifically for individuals who “live in targeted, locked-out states that do not offer in-state tuition to DREAMers.”

[RELATED: DACA lawsuits show universities fear loss of tuition revenue]

In addition to its scholarships, TheDream.US partners with colleges and universities “that are committed to serving and graduating DREAMers,” with partner institutions providing DACA recipients with a “designated Scholar Advisor” for “support and assistance to address all of the emotional, lifestyle, and financial challenges that may prevent our Scholars from completing college.”

Some of the partner institutions include Arizona State University, California State University, Colorado State University, the University of Central Florida, Rutgers University, Texas A&M University, and George Mason University.

A recent report from The Chronicle of Philanthropy ranked Bezos tenth for charitable giving among billionaires in the United States, listing well over $200 million in donations to higher education that Bezos has made in recent years.
