Posted on

Fox News contributor Sara Carter reveals “Clinton Foundation” hatchet man Sidney Blumenthal was grilled by the FBI in 2016 in connection to Christopher Steele Trump-Russia dossier.

 

Sara Carter reports:

A close friend, advisor and confidant of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was allegedly interviewed by the FBI in connection with the controversial dossier that was used ‘in part’ as evidence by the bureau to obtain a warrant to investigate members of President Trump’s campaign team, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter.

Sidney Blumenthal, a former journalist and a close friend of Clinton, was  interviewed by the FBI in 2016 regarding the dossier that alleged Trump colluded with Russia, the sources stated. Department of Justice officials, however, declined to comment on Blumenthal or the dossier. […]

Blumenthal worked as a White House aide for Bill Clinton, and later worked with the Clinton Foundation after being denied a role by Obama Administration officials with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to reports.  According to Politico he was being paid $10,000 a month by the Clinton Foundation.

 

 

 

 

MANUFACTURING OUTPUT ROSE, STRONGEST QUARTER SINCE 2010- FURTHER INCREASE EXPECTED

Posted on

 

  • Manufacturing, which makes up more than 75 percent of total industrial production, accounts for about 12 percent of the U.S. economy. It increased 2.4 percent in December from the same month a year earlier.
  • Factory output climbed 1.3 percent in 2017, the strongest annual reading in five years
  • Expect lowest business inventory-to-sales ratio in three years could translate into increased production in coming months.

 

( Bloomberg ) U.S. factory production rose for a fourth straight month in December, capping the strongest quarter since 2010 and underscoring a resurgence in manufacturing that’s primed for further advances, Federal Reserve data showed Wednesday.

Factory output increased at a 7 percent annualized rate in the fourth quarter, the strongest since the second quarter of 2010. Combined with national and regional surveys of purchasing managers, the figures indicate manufacturing was robust at the end of the year.

Stronger consumer spending, increased business investment and more shipments of merchandise to overseas customers are providing plenty of fuel for the nation’s producers. What’s more, the lowest business inventory-to-sales ratio in three years could translate into increased production in coming months.

Factory output climbed 1.3 percent in 2017, the strongest annual reading in five years.

The Fed’s monthly data are volatile and often get revised. Manufacturing, which makes up more than 75 percent of total industrial production, accounts for about 12 percent of the U.S. economy. It increased 2.4 percent in December from the same month a year earlier.

Other Details

  • Utility output jumped 5.6 percent, boosted by colder weather, after falling 3.1 percent the prior month
  • Mining production rose 1.6 percent; with oil and gas well drilling rising 0.9 percent
  • Production of motor vehicles increased 2 percent, the most in four months; excluding autos and parts, manufacturing output fell 0.1 percent
  • Production of consumer goods rose 1 percent, and output of business equipment increased 0.2 percent
  • Output of machinery and wood products increased in December

BOOM! 164 COMPANIES GIVE BONUSES TO MILLIONS OF EMPLOYEES, CITING TRUMP/GOP TAX CUTS

Posted on

 

A list of 40 firms offering millions of employees bonuses and customers fee cuts has surged to 164 in just 10 days as the likely financial benefit of President Trump’s tax reform has started to settle in.

“You’ve likely seen the news about U.S. tax reform. We believe these tax changes will be positive for our company, and provide us the opportunity to do good things for our Crewmembers, customers and shareholders,” said Jet Blue, which is offering a $1,000 bonuse to 21,000 employees.

Even before the list expanded in the past week, the bonuses, wage increases and rate hikes being offered by big and small companies and public utilities was praised by President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Some companies are offering bonuses up to $3,000, increases in 401k contributions and wage hikes.

CNN’s Don Lemon got so flustered on Monday night during an interview with Isaac Newton Farris when he could not get Martin Luther King’s nephew to call President Trump racist.

A frustrated Lemon called President Trump a ‘2018 racist’ after Farris argued the fact that the president is not a ‘traditional racist’.

 

Farris met with Trump at the White House last week during an event honoring his uncle.

 

 

 

 

TRUMP EXCELLENT GENES DEFEAT NO EXERCISE, McDONALD’S DIET, 5 HOURS OF SLEEP

Posted on

  • Dr. Jackson: Trump is “one of those people that does not require a lot of sleep.”
  • In response to a question from a reporter about how Trump can remain in “excellent health” despite his rumored McDonald’s diet, Jackson replied, “It’s called genetics. Some people just have great genes; he has incredibly good genes. It’s just the way God made him.”
  • “The president is mentally very sharp, very intact…He’s fit for duty. I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder this term and even for the remainder of another term if elected”

 

( Fox News ) The 71-year-old president went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., last week to undergo his first physical exam in office. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician, performed the assessment.

“The president’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well,” Jackson said following the examination on Friday. “The president is in excellent health.”

In response to a question from a reporter about how Trump can remain in “excellent health” despite his rumored McDonald’s diet, Jackson replied, “It’s called genetics. Some people just have great genes; he has incredibly good genes. It’s just the way God made him.”

Jackson also estimated Trump sleeps, on average, about four to five hours a night. He said he hopes to gradually increase that number, but that may just be Trump’s routine.

“He’s probably been that way his whole life,” Jackson said. “He’s just one of those people that does not require a lot of sleep.”

Per Trump’s request, Jackson performed what he believes to be the first cognitive test during a presidential exam, despite having “absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability.”

The 10-minute test, known as The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), assesses a person’s concentration, executive functions, memory and conceptual thinking among other “cognitive domains,” according to the Boston Medical Center.

“The president is mentally very sharp, very intact…He’s fit for duty.”

– Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson

Trump performed “exceedingly well” on the exam, with a perfect score — 30 out of 30, Jackson said.

“The president is mentally very sharp, very intact…He’s fit for duty. I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder this term and even for the remainder of another term if elected,” Jackson said.

LIB MELTDOWN! TRUMP,71, ‘COULD HAVE LIVED TO 200 YEARS OLD’ IF HE HAD BETTER DIET- WH DR. RONNY JACKSON

Posted on Updated on

 

I told the president if he’d had better diet over the last 20 years he could have lived to 200 years old. The answer is he has incredibly good genes, it’s just the way God made him.” – Dr. Ronny Jackson, White House physician

Asked how a 71-year-old man known to like hamburgers could be in “excellent” physical health, he said: “It’s called genetics. Some people have great genes.

  • Dr Jackson performed a “difficult” cognitive test and Mr Trump scored 30 out of 30.
  • Weight was 239 pounds. He had a Body Mass Index at the very top of the “overweight” range and just shy of “obese”.

 

Donald Trump ‘could have lived to 200 years old’ if he ate fewer hamburgers, doctor says

 

 

Donald Trump has “incredible genes” and could have lived to 200-years-old if his diet had been better in recent years, the White House presidential physician said.

Dr Ronny Jackson, who performed Mr Trump’s first medical exam as president, declared him “fit for duty” physically and mentally.

As well as a thorough physical Dr Jackson performed a “difficult” cognitive test and Mr Trump scored 30 out of 30.

The doctor said: “He’s very sharp, he’s very articulate around me, I’ve no indication to be concerned about his thought process.”

Dr Jackson said he had not planned to do a cognitive test but Mr Trump asked him to, and he did “exceedingly well” on it.

The doctor said: “If he had some kind of mental cognitive issue he would not have got 30 out of 30 on the test. He has no mental or cognitive issues.”

Asked how a 71-year-old man known to like hamburgers could be in “excellent” physical health, he said: “It’s called genetics. Some people have great genes.

“I told the president if he’d had better diet over the last 20 years he could have lived to 200 years old. The answer is he has incredibly good genes, it’s just the way God made him.

“He had great findings across the board but his cardiac health stood out. Hands down he is in the excellent range.

“He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol.”

FUSION GPS ‘STILL’ TAKING MONEY FROM SECRET DONORS FOR THEIR ONGOING TRUMP-RUSSIA RESEARCH

Posted on Updated on

  • Sara Carter: Fusion GPS is still investigating alleged ties between President Trump’s 2016 election campaign and Russia…Who is paying for the continuing research?

 

Fusion GPS continues research on Trump amid growing concern for Congressional Committees

Sara Carter reports:

The controversial research firm Fusion GPS is still investigating alleged ties between President Trump’s 2016 election campaign and Russia, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter.

What’s not known is who is paying for the continuing research? Fusion GPS officials could not be reached immediately for comment. […]

Rep.

DeSantis told this reporter that releasing the information on the dossier and the classified FISA applications is the first step in getting the truth to the public.

“Congress needs to determine the role played by Fusion GPS in the Russia matter and that includes any current Fusion activity,” said DeSantis. “Fusion has not been forthright with Congress and the American people deserve the facts.”

‘NEW CALIFORNIA’ DECLARES INDEPENDENCE – FROM HIGH-TAXES CALIFORNIA, NOT U.S.

Posted on Updated on

  • As it now, taxes are too high, education is too shoddy, and the state, as a whole, is “ungovernable,” the the New California movement’s founder Robert Paul Preston argues.

 

CNS News By Craig Bannister

Citing the U.S. Constitution, a group introduced its Declaration of Independence – from California, but not from the United States.

The “New California” movement wants to turn northern and rural California into the nation’s 51 state, separating from southern, coastal urban California in the same way that West Virginia was formed, CBS Sacramento reported Monday:

“Unlike other separation movements in the past the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the US Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed.”

As it now, taxes are too high, education is too shoddy, and the state, as a whole, is “ungovernable,” the the New California movement’s founder Robert Paul Preston argues.

OBAMA STATE DEPT. NOW PART OF RUSSIA DOSSIER CONGRESSIONAL PROBE

Posted on

 

Byron York of the Washington Examiner reports the Obama State Department is now being probed as to whether or not they had a hand in the Russian dossier by Christopher Steele, the British spy trusted not only of the FBI, but the State Department as well.

book published in November by a correspondent at the Guardian, “Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money, and how Russia helped Donald Trump win,” noted that Steele’s 2010 work on the World Cup soccer corruption investigation won him the trust not only of the FBI, but the State Department as well. From author Luke Harding:

The [soccer] episode burnished Steele’s reputation inside the U.S. intelligence community and the FBI. Here was a pro, a well-connected Brit, who understood Russian espionage and its subterranean tricks. Steele was regarded as credible. Between 2014 and 2016, Steele authored more than a hundred reports on Russia and Ukraine. These were written for a private client but shared widely within the State Department and sent up to Secretary of State John Kerry and to Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, who was in charge of the U.S. response to the Ukraine crisis. Many of Steele’s secret sources were the same sources who would supply information on Trump. One former State Department envoy during the Obama administration said he read dozens of Steele’s reports on Russia. The envoy said that on Russia, Steele was “as good as the CIA or anyone.” Steele’s professional reputation inside U.S. agencies would prove important the next time he discovered alarming material, and lit the fuse again.

 

 

STEVE BANNON SUBPOENAED BY MUELLER TO TESTIFY BEFORE GRAND JURY OVER RUSSIA COLLUSION HOAX

Posted on

 

WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, was subpoenaed last week by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to testify before a grand jury as part of the investigation into possible links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

The move marked the first time Mr. Mueller is known to have used a grand jury subpoena to seek information from a member of Mr. Trump’s inner circle. The special counsel’s office has used subpoenas before to seek information on Mr. Trump’s associates and their possible ties to Russia or other foreign governments.

The subpoena could be a negotiating tactic. Mr. Mueller is likely to allow Mr. Bannon to forgo the grand jury appearance if he agrees to instead be questioned by investigators in the less formal setting of the special counsel’s offices about ties between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia and about the president’s conduct in office, according to the person, who would not be named discussing the case. But it was not clear why Mr. Mueller treated Mr. Bannon differently than the dozen administration officials who were interviewed in the final months of last year and were never served with a subpoena.

The subpoena is a sign that Mr. Bannon is not personally the focus of the investigation. Justice Department rules allow prosecutors to subpoena to the targets of investigations only in rare circumstances.

WHY 200 FACULTY MEMBERS OF UNIV. OF CHICAGO OPPOSE 20-ACRE OBAMA CENTER IN JACKSON PARK

Posted on

 

200 faculty members from Obama’s former employer, the University of Chicago, issued a formal letter last Monday stating its opposition to the Obama presidential center being built at Jackson Park.

  • First, there are concerns that the Obama Center as currently planned will not provide the promised development or economic benefits to the neighborhoods
  • Second, the current plan calls for taking a large section of an historic public park and giving it to a private entity for development. Jackson Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the most important urban parks in the nation.
  • Third, because of the planned location of the Obama Center, the Obama Foundation plans to take over a section of another historic, public park — Midway Plaisance, also designed by Olmsted — and turn it into an above-ground parking garage. They have to date rejected many pleas of neighborhood groups to place the garage underground.
  • Finally, it is the taxpayers of Chicago who are going to be forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars for this project, according to estimates by the Chicago Department of Transportation.
  • The required widening of Lake Shore Drive alone is estimated to be over $100 million.
  • Not only are public lands being given to a private entity but the public will pay to have Cornell Drive closed and Stony Island Avenue and Lake Shore Drive widened

 

Letter from Faculty Concerning the Obama Center

We members of the University of Chicago faculty who sign this letter support the idea of establishing the Obama Center in our neighborhood, in the South Side. However, as details of the plans have become public we share concerns expressed by neighborhood groups throughout the South Side. …Other groups opposed to the current plans include the Midway Plaisance Park Advisory Committee, Save the Midway, Jackson Park Watch, and South Shore Nature Sanctuary. The concerns of these groups are different. But taken together they form an intelligible whole.

BATTLE TO STOP OBAMA PUBLIC LIBRARY TURNED PRIVATE CENTER IN HISTORIC JACKSON PARK

The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that's no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh)

  • What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.
  • The Obama Foundation shared dozens of changes to its proposal, including road closures within the park, a revamping of the picturesque landscaping, and a newly designed main building would stretch 23 stories high at 235 feet tall.
  • This isn’t just any public open space; this is historic parkland originally designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., and Calvert Vaux (of New York’s Central Park fame),” the organization’s website states. The park system was designed in 1871, and Olmsted wrote in 1895 that the Museum of Science and Industry was intended to be the only “dominating object of interest” in the park.
  • 200 faculty members from Obama’s former employer, the University of Chicago, issued a formal letter last Monday stating its opposition to the presidential center being built at this location.

 

 

The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.

“Here’s our bottom line. If the Obama Foundation wishes to construct this center on Chicago’s South Side, that’s fine, but not on parkland held in public trust. The University of Chicago, which orchestrated the winning bid for the project, has plenty of land on the South Side that they could and should use. Instead, they’ve been adamant since day one that they must have historic public parkland for the purpose,” Charles Birnbaum, president and founder of D.C.-based nonprofit, the Cultural Landscape Foundation, told the Washington Examiner in a written statement Saturday.

THE CLINTONS HAVE BEEN ‘LOOTING AND ABUSING’ HAITI FOR YEARS – JUDICIAL WATCH

Posted on

 

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton took to YouTube this week to go over “document after document,” proving  the crooked Clintons have been shamelessly “looting and abusing” the 2010 Haiti earthquake reconstruction funds.

Video Source: Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch reported in July of 2013:

Can you say scandal? The former president, who has been heavily involved in distributing Haiti earthquake reconstruction funds, pushed hard for the power plant and port for an industrial park in northern Haiti billed as the centerpiece of the United States’ effort to help the ravaged island nation rebuild. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined her husband in the effort, making several trips to Haiti to promote the project and encourage foreigners to invest in it. […]

Not really, according to a federal audit of the $1.14 billion that Congress approved to help Haiti recover from the powerful earthquake that killed more than 200,000 and left over 1 million homeless. […]

The investigation focused on $651 million that American taxpayers have given Haiti via the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) since 2010.

4 INDICTMENTS IN URANIUM ONE FBI PROBE CONCEALED BY OBAMA ADMIN – USING ONE JUDGE, SAME PROSECUTORS, ONE FBI OFFICIAL

Posted on Updated on

 

In  2008, Robert Mueller’s FBI investigation on Tenam ( a U.S. subsidiary of Russia’s Rosatom, which purchased Uranium One, without Congress approval,  via Hillary Clinton ) led to at least 4 indictments by Obama’s DOJ:

  • All 4 indictments were either quietly settled under plea agreements, or dropped entirely
  • ALL 4 cases were prosecuted by Rod Rosenstein & Andrew Weissman ( Both part of Mueller’s team in Trump-Russia probe )
  • The FBI officer assigned to each case was Andrew McCabe.
  • ALL assigned to the same judge – one Judge Theodore Chuang, an Obama appointee

The Tenam investigation is related to the Uranium One (U1) sale. Thats because the Tenam investigation was hidden from Congress & CFIUS, who approved the U1 sale in Oct 2010. If either had known about it, it’s highly unlikely the U1 sale would have been approved.

Tenam is the US based subsidiary of Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin’s (Putin’s) energy company. The same Rosatom that purchased Uranium One.

SOURCE: Independent researcher Imperator Rex 

Independent researcher Imperator Rex has put together a great thread on twitter showing how Robert Mueller’s FBI probe into Russian Uranium One bribery scheme was deliberately concealed by the Obama administration.

 

Here’s part of the thread:  

 

7. And the more you analyze the Tenam investigation, the more it appears that the Obama administration and/or Clintons deliberately wanted it hidden.

3. Background & reminder : from at least 2008, Robert Mueller’s FBI were investigating Tenam, the US based subsidiary of Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Kremlin’s (Putin’s) energy company. The same Rosatom that purchased Uranium One.

4. Tenam was importing Russian uranium into the US. Between 2004-2014, the local manager, Mikerin, engaged with US companies Transport Logistics (TL) & NexGen Security in a racketeering, wire fraud, bribery & money laundering scheme.

5. When a TL insider, William Campbell, blew the whistle on what he was seeing, Mueller’s FBI started an investigation that led to at least 4 indictments by Holder’s DOJ.

6. Remember – the Tenam investigation is related to the Uranium One (U1) sale. Thats because the Tenam investigation was hidden from Congress & CFIUS, who approved the U1 sale in Oct 2010. If either had known about it, it’s highly unlikely the U1 sale would have been approved.

9. Now consider this – none of the 4 indictments ever saw the light of day. Every one was either quietly settled under plea agreements, or dropped entirely

14. Notice something about these cases? None ever saw the light of day, where testimony would be made public. They were all ‘disappeared’. Now with that in mind, consider the following bombshell facts:

10. Mikerin, the Tenam manager, was sentenced to 48 months under a plea deal, for crimes that had 20+ year sentences

11. Darren Condrey – plea agreement : Anti-Bribery, Conspiracy

12. Carol Condrey – under a plea agreement , her case was dropped

13. Rubizhevsky (NexGen) case settled with plea agreement. Astonishing given the charges: Conspiracy to Launder Money (18 U.S.C. § 371; 18 U.S.C. §§ 1956, 1957) ; Criminal Forfeiture (28 U.S.C. § 2461; 18 U.S.C. § 981) ; Criminal Forfeiture (18 U.S.C. § 982)

15. ALL of these cases were prosecuted by the same duo, or combination thereof – Rod Rosenstein & Andrew Weissman.

16. The FBI officer assigned to each case? Why, one Andrew McCabe.

17. Oh – here’s another interesting coincidence : they were ALL assigned to the same judge – one Judge Theodore Chuang, an Obama appointee. I hope you have not fallen off your chair yet, it gets worse:

 

 

 

TRUMP BLAMES ‘DICKY DURBIN’ FOR BLOWING UP DACA DEAL

Posted on

 

 

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military.”

 

Trump commented on the issue after spending time at his golf course in Palm Beach, Florida and returning to his club at Mar-a-Lago, where he is staying over the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Since news of his comment referring to “shithole countries” broke on Thursday, Trump said defensively that it was “not the language used,” although he admitted that it was “tough.”

But Durbin repeatedly accused the president of making racist comments.

REMEMBER WHEN OBAMA CALLED ISRAELI PM NETAYAHU A ‘CHICKENSHIT’

Posted on Updated on

  • Obama: ” The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit”

 

( Daily Caller ) In 2014, a high-ranking Obama official called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “chickenshit.”  The derogatory term was meant as an insult to Netanyahu for his cautious posturing on the Obama-proposed peace process with the Palestinians. The comment was made to Jeffrey Goldberg and published in the Atlantic:

The other day I was talking to a senior Obama administration official about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House and the State Department the most. “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit,” this official said, referring to the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, by his nickname.

The comment did not help and already uneasy relationship between the Obama Administration and the ruling Israeli government.  John Kerry was forced to call and apologize to Netanyahu on behalf of Obama and the administration.

Kerry phoned Netanyahu, and called the comments “disgraceful, unacceptable, and damaging.”

THE DONALD TRUMP SHOW DAZZLES AND SHOCKS IN FIRST YEAR

Posted on

  • Supporters love his no-nonsense style, while opponents are sent into spasms of anger with each new moral outrage, real or perceived.

 

Donald Trump’s first year in office has been a gripping spectacle of scandal, controversy and polarization that has utterly transformed the way Americans and their president interact.

“Welcome back to the studio,” said a beaming Trump, inviting White House reporters into the Cabinet Room for a recap of his first year in office.

It was a lighthearted remark, but a revealing one. For a year now, the world has watched enthralled, and sometimes aghast, at the Trump Show.

More than any single policy, it’s the style of performance that has captivated and, at times, repulsed the world.

“Donald Trump’s rhetoric is unlike any president in the modern presidency,” said Richard Vatz, a professor from Towson University, who focuses on presidential communication.

“He communicates more frequently and is less concerned about consistency and consequences from his language than any president in this era.”

He has described himself as a “very stable genius,” called other countries “shitholes” and repeatedly threatened his political foes.

Many presidents have tried to bypass a critical media — from Franklin Roosevelt’s fireside chats to Barack Obama’s interviews with YouTubers. But Trump has taken that into overdrive on Twitter.

From one day to the next, he is rarely out of the headlines or off the air, permeating every facet of public life.

Trumpisms like “many people are saying” have entered the vernacular “big league.”

Supporters love his no-nonsense style, while opponents are sent into spasms of anger with each new moral outrage, real or perceived.

– ‘Are you not entertained?’ –

 

A life-long showman, he has given weighty geopolitical decisions — like his verdict on the Iran nuclear deal or the status of Jerusalem — a tease worthy of a season finale.

Police Knew That Hawaii Missile Attack Report was False Within Five Minutes After Alert

Posted on

 

According to 911 recordings obtained by Mercury News, police dispatchers had realized that the missile warning was a false alarm only minutes after the warnings flashed across cell phones.

The warning hit cellphones at 8:07 AM on Saturday, January 13, but dispatchers were aware that the report was a false alarm by 8:12, the paper reported. Despite that, officials didn’t rescind the warning until 8:45.

“Somebody should get fired,” one police officer is heard saying dourly on the recordings.

Only minutes after the alert went out, one Island police officer was heard letting out a “wheww” in relief as he learned that the whole thing was untrue.

“They’re really scared,” the officer added of people he was meeting.

“They probably made an error in their testing,” the dispatcher responded on the recordings. “And we’ll just have to relay this to everybody.”

 

Several other dispatchers and officers reiterated that the report was a false one, but one supervisor advised to continue evacuations until official channels reported back that the alert was an accidental release.

CJ PEARSON, 15, BLOGGER & BLACK TRUMP SUPPORTER: MLK would be proud of Trump

Posted on

  • CJ Pearson: “Under President Trump, black employment is at an all-time low.
  • This is also a president who set his sights on saving inner cities across America, lowering the violent crime in these cities so that black babies aren’t scared to go play in the playground without the threat of being shot hanging over their head,”
  • “Something that President Obama never did in the entirety of his eight years in office,”

 

CJ Pearson, popular 15-year-old conservative blogger and Trump supporter, is gaining massive support online after presenting the case for why Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud of President Donald Trump.

Pearson argues that President Trump “has done more for black folks in one year than Obama did in eight.”

 

From The Gateway Pundit:

“Under President Trump, black employment is at an all-time low. This is also a president who set his sights on saving inner cities across America, lowering the violent crime in these cities so that black babies aren’t scared to go play in the playground without the threat of being shot hanging over their head,” Pearson began. “He’s also focused on bringing jobs to these communities, bringing economic investments to these communities and bringing rising wages to these communities.”

“Something that President Obama never did in the entirety of his eight years in office,” Pearson states.

The young student from Georgia, who comes from a Democratic family, goes on to credit the president for his work to save historically black colleges.

“I would argue that President Trump has lead a presidency that Martin Luther King would be proud of — and it’s kind of funny to say because everyone in the media and everyone on the left is hellbent on accusing this president of being a racist, a bigot and all these other baseless accusations that have no merit at all,” Pearson asserts.

Pearson grows upset as he discusses accusations of Trump being racist, and fiercely defends the president.

“I as a black teenager, I saw the devastation that liberal policies have had within the black community, I have seen the hurt that they have caused,” Pearson emotionally demands. “I have seen the pain that President Obama’s inaction has caused in places like Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and so forth and so on.”

The teen concludes that MLK and Trump share the common goal that “America First” is “America together” and that both men believed that every person of every color deserves to thrive.

“As a 15 year old Black American, I saw firsthand the devastation the Obama Administration caused within my community. President Trump has sought to heal those wounds and has done a darn good job. Perhaps, the Left should take notes,” Pearson told the Gateway Pundit.

POLLS: TRUMP’S SUPPORT AMONG BLACKS, ESP. MEN, HAS DOUBLED SINCE 2016, AMID RACISM CLAIMS

Martin Luther King Jr. Would Have Stood With Trump: He Didn’t Want Migrants From The Third World Here Either

  • Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women,” said the article.

 

The growing support from blacks — despite furious Democratic claims of racism — could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his “Buy American, Hire American” policies.

Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women,” said the article.

That score averages out to 17 percent, or twice the 8 percent score he was given in the 2016 exit polls.

In November 2016, Trump got 13 percent support among black men and 4 percent support among black women, according to the exit polls. That very low support was critical to his victory in the Democrats’ now-demolished “Blue Wall” states.

FACEBOOK AND UK-MUSLIM GROUP LAUNCHED ‘KEEPING MUSLIMS SAFE ONLINE’ GUIDELINE

Posted on

 

Gatestone Institute ) Facebook, in cooperation with a British Muslim group, recently launched a “guide” developed especially for Muslims: “Keeping Muslims Safe Online: Tackling Hate and Bigotry”.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, wrote about making Facebook a “safe space” for Muslims. He has made no similar supportive statements in favor of Jews or Christians.

 

  • What is “harmful content” according to the new Facebook guide for Muslims? “Islamophobia, anti-Muslim hatred, far right extremism and terrorist inspired violent extremist content”.
  • The guide does not mention Islamic incitement to violence, which is rampant on social media and — unlike the other content mentioned — has deadly and tragic consequences in the real world. Most of those who perpetrate terrorist attacks in the real world are Muslims — not “Islamophobes,” anti-Muslims or right wing extremists.
  • Lakin v. Facebook is a lawsuit, representing 20,000 Israeli plaintiffs, which aims to stop Facebook from “continuing to facilitate terrorist activity directed at” Israelis.
  • Khan convened a special meeting of Muslim ambassadors to discuss how effectively to “raise the voice of the entire Muslim world against the madness unleashed against Islam and holy personalities in the name of freedom of expression”. — Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.

JEFF ‘SNOW’ FLAKE COMPARES TRUMP CRITICISM OF FAKE NEWS MEDIA TO STALIN

Posted on

 

( Fox News ) Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., will make a speech scheduled for Wednesday where he will compare President Trump’s concerns of media objectivity to similar comments made by communist dictator Joseph Stalin.

Flake, a fervent critic of the Trump administration, is set to give the speech the same day Trump is expected to announce the winners of the so-called “fake news” awards.

The senator will use his speech to condemn Trump’s attacks on the press and for calling it “the enemy of the American people.”

In the draft of the speech, obtained by The Washington Post, Flake will then compare Trump’s comments to statements made by Stalin, who is responsible for the murder of millions.

“It is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies,” the senator is expected to say, according to the excerpts published by the Post.

GERMANISTAN MAG DER SPIEGEL MOCKS TRUMP AS A DEVOLVED MAN…GERMANISTAN LEADS THE MARCH TO EURABIA!

Posted on Updated on

 

( The Hill ) The German magazine Der Spiegel mocked President Trump on its latest cover this week, depicting the president as an devolved man.

The magazine shared the latest cover in a tweet on Saturday. Beneath the illustration is the subtitle “In the age of Fire and Fury,” a reference to journalist Michael Wolff’s book on the Trump administration, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

In the image, Trump is depicted last in a line of devolving humans, a spoof of the scientific illustration “March of Progress.”

Der Spiegel’s cover comes just two days after Trump caused international outrage when it was reported that he referred to Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with lawmakers.

CONGRESSMAN SON ADAM LEVINE: ‘Coming Out as a Republican Went Worse Than Coming Out Gay’

Posted on

Gay Trump fans (Drew Angerer / Getty)

  • Adam Levine: Growing up, he “learned the black national anthem before I knew the ‘Star Spangled Banner’,” and when he “came out” as gay to his family at the age of 20, they “were duly overjoyed.”
  • “Lifelong acquaintances now regard me with fear and distrust. I have been unfriended en masse on social media and excoriated by friends who deign to remain. And I have been singly excluded from social gatherings when the rest of my family was invited.”
  • In desperation, like a closeted teenager sneaking into a porn theater, I surreptitiously began to explore the forbidden territories of Fox News and other conservative outlets. Incredibly, I found myself agreeing more often than not,”
  • “I reached my threshold where no amount of hypothetical Republican bigotry or greed could approach the magnitude of hypocrisy, corruption, or criminality I saw rotting the Democrats to the core. I jumped ship.”

 

“I am not a sex offender. But a number of my friends no longer have time to see me,” declared Levine in the article. “Lifelong acquaintances now regard me with fear and distrust. I have been unfriended en masse on social media and excoriated by friends who deign to remain. And I have been singly excluded from social gatherings when the rest of my family was invited.”

“No, I am not a sex offender. I am something even worse than that. I am a Donald Trump supporter,” he proclaimed. “I was raised in a liberal Jewish family in Washington DC, where my dad served as a Democratic congressman for Los Angeles. Accordingly, I was indoctrinated with all of the correct values and views.” Adam’s father, Mel Levine, served in Congress from 1983 to 1993.

Levine claimed that growing up, he “learned the black national anthem before I knew the ‘Star Spangled Banner’,” and when he “came out” as gay to his family at the age of 20, they “were duly overjoyed.”

 

 

 

When he came out as a Republican, however, his life quickly changed.

“I did not even bother going to gay pride because it was fused with a Resist march. If you do not want to impeach our president, you have no place in gay life,” Levine claimed. “I was labeled a white supremacist by a friend I’ve known my entire life, and completely dropped with no explanation by another dear friend and self-anointed giant of the gay civil rights movement to whom my father had introduced me 15 years ago.”

PICTURES: Historic German Church Demolished as Mosques Multiply Across the Country

 

The huge building, which was “notable for its double towers and neo-Romanesque design”, according to the Catholic Herald, was demolished by the RWE mining company to make way for an opencast lignite mine.

St Lambertus and the farming village surrounding it was bought out by RWE some years ago, with the church being formally deconsecrated in 2013.

Villagers have been relocated to a new site, and provided with a new church built “according to a modern design”.

FLASHBACK! OBAMA SCOLDED HIS LIB MEDIA IN PROFANITY-LACED TIRADES FOR ‘MAKING TOO MUCH OF HIS SCANDALS’

Posted on

 

  • ABC News reporter Ann Compton: “I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals. Another where he took us to task for not understanding the limits he has with foreign policy and the way he’s dealing with the Middle East and Iraq, and Afghanistan,”

 

By Ben Wolfgang – The Washington Times – Monday, December 8, 2014

A veteran White House reporter says President Obama went on a “profanity-laced” tirade during an off-the-record meeting with journalists sometime in the past year.

ABC News reporter Ann Compton, who retired earlier this year, told C-SPAN that she witnessed Mr. Obama’s anger — and colorful vocabulary — firsthand.

“I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. Both were off-the-record times. One, profanity-laced where he thought the press was making too much of scandals that he did not think were scandals. Another where he took us to task for not understanding the limits he has with foreign policy and the way he’s dealing with the Middle East and Iraq, and Afghanistan,” she said. “And I don’t find him apologetic. But I find him willing to stand up to the press and look them in the eye, even though it was off the record and just give us hell.”

Ms. Compton also took aim at the Obama administration’s penchant for secrecy. This administration has come under almost constant fire from journalists for, among other things, freezing out photojournalists from Oval Office events only to release official White House photos of the very same event a few hours later.

“This particular administration has been more opaque than any I have covered about what the president does in the Oval Office every day. He is far less accessible on photo-ops with meetings,” Ms. Compton said.

WAT! Drugged driver crashes car into second story of California building

Posted on

The car was seen hanging from a second-story window in Santa Ana, Calif.

 

( Fox News ) A California driver escaped a dangerous crash early Sunday morning after apparently hitting a divider at such a high speed that it launched the car into the second story of a nearby building.

The driver reportedly said afterwards that he’d been using drugs at the time.

The white Nissan Altima slammed into the center divider around 5:30 a.m., prompting the sedan to soar into the air and into the second floor of a dental office in Santa Ana, Calif., the Orange County Fire Authority said.

Capt. Stephen Horner of the Orange County Fire Authority told the New York Post that the very unusual “situation” was triggered by the driver’s speed.

“A vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed hit the center divider, went airborne and landed on the second floor of a small office building,” he said. “This is not a situation that happens every day.”

According to police, the driver later admitted to using narcotics when the crash occurred, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Officials say that one person who was in the car managed to get out while crews had to rescue the second person. Both sustained serious injuries.

FLASHBACK! HAITI OFFICIAL CLINTON FOUNDATION WHISTLEBLOWER FOUND DEAD

Posted on

 

( Zero Hedge ) The mainstream media’s silence over Klaus Eberwein’s death is deafening.

Eberwein was a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week.

He has been found dead in Miami at the age of 50.

The circumstances surrounding Eberwein’s death are also nothing less than unpalatable. According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head.“ Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide” by the government. But not long before his death, he acknowledged that his life was in danger because he was outspoken on the criminal activities of the Clinton Foundation. 

Eberwein was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years. “The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year. Eberwein was due to appear on Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors. But this “suicide” gets even more disturbing…

Eberwein was only 50-years-old and reportedly told acquaintances he feared for his life because of his fierce criticism of the Clinton Foundation.  His close friends and business partners were taken aback by the idea he may have committed suicide. “It’s really shocking,” said friend Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”

During and after his government tenure, Eberwein faced allegations of fraud and corruption on how the agency he headed administered funds. Among the issues was FAES’ oversight of the shoddy construction of several schools built after Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.  But, according to Eberwein, it was the Clinton Foundation who was deeply in the wrong – and he intended to testify and prove it on Tuesday.

HEY LIBS! SOVIET LEADER BORIS YELTSIN ABANDONED COMMUNISM AFTER WALKING INTO A TEXAS GROCERY STORE

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Soviet leader Boris Yeltsin: If the lines of starving men, women and children in Russia were to see the conditions of America’s supermarkets, “there would be a revolution.”
  •  “When I saw those shelves crammed with hundreds, thousands of cans, cartons and goods of every possible sort, for the first time I felt quite frankly sick with despair for the Soviet people.”
  • In photos taken by the Chronicle, Yeltsin could be seen “marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.”

 

( Conservative Tribune ) Very few people know this, but one of the most famous Soviet officials in Russian history originally learned of the many advantages of capitalism at a regular ol’ Randalls grocery store nearly three decades ago.

In 1989, then-Communist Party of the Soviet Union member Boris Yeltsin traveled to the United States to visit the Johnson Space Center in Texas, according to the Houston Chronicle.

While in Houston for the visit, he also stopped by a Randalls grocery store, where he “roamed the aisles of Randall’s nodding his head in amazement,” according to an account of the visit written by then-Chronicle reporter Stefanie Asin.

 

He further told his fellow comrades who followed him to America for the visit that if the lines of starving men, women and children in Russia were to see the conditions of America’s supermarkets, “there would be a revolution.”

In photos of the visit reportedly taken by the Chronicle, Yeltsin could be seen “marveling at the produce section, the fresh fish market, and the checkout counter. He looked especially excited about frozen pudding pops.”

“Even the Politburo doesn’t have this choice. Not even Mr. Gorbachev,” he himself reportedly said, referring to the then-president of the Soviet Union.

Even after Yeltsin left Houston, he still remained transfixed by the luxuries we as Americans have always considered normal.

“For a long time, on the plane to Miami, he sat motionless, his head in his hands,” wrote biography Leon Aron in his 2000 book, “Yeltsin, A Revolutionary Life,”  basing his account on quotes from Yeltsin’s associates, according to The New York Times.

“‘What have they done to our poor people?’ he said after a long silence. On his return to Moscow, Yeltsin would confess the pain he had felt after the Houston excursion: the ‘pain for all of us, for our country so rich, so talented and so exhausted by incessant experiments.’”

Experiments in communism, to be precise.

Yeltsin reportedly admitted to these thoughts in his own autobiography, writing, “When I saw those shelves crammed with hundreds, thousands of cans, cartons and goods of every possible sort, for the first time I felt quite frankly sick with despair for the Soviet people.”

TRUMP’S BULL MARKET IS MORE POWERFUL THAN THE LATE 90s – SAYS RALPH ACAMPORA, GODFATHER OF TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

Posted on

  • The godfather of technical analysis, Ralph Acampora : “This is a market that’s more powerful than the late ’90s. I’m not sitting in a chair anymore. I’m sitting in a rocking chair,” he told CNBC’s “Futures Now” on Tuesday — adding that the “chair was about to explode.” 

 

  10 Jan 2018

( CNBC ) The godfather of technical analysis is a raging bull, and he’s becoming even more vocal about it.

Last week, Ralph Acampora said he was so bullish he had to sit down and calm down.

“I’m not sitting in a chair anymore. I’m sitting in a rocking chair,” he told CNBC’s “Futures Now” on Tuesday — adding that the “chair was about to explode.”

The S&P 500, Dow and Nasdaq have been sizzling.

The S&P 500 is seeing its strongest six-day win streak in 31 years. That index, along with the Nasdaq, just registered its sixth all-time closing high of 2018. The Dow has clocked four record closes.

“This is a market that’s more powerful than the late ’90s,” said Acampora.

Altaira Capital Partners’ Acampora, who calls himself “the godfather of technical analysis,” contends an impressive rotation is firmly gripping the market — a vital element of any strong bull market.

“The last six days have been phenomenal,” he said. “Foreign markets are on fire, too. It’s all over the world.”

He points to a simple chart that illustrates the breadth of the rally. According to Acampora, the NYSE advance-decline line reflects just how vibrant the stock market is right now.

“We technicians look at the breadth of the market. That’s the advances and declines,” he said. “It just tells you the direction of the move. And you look at that picture, and the majority of stocks are moving up. To me, that’s broad-based advance and it makes me very, very encouraged.”

BANK of AMERICA: A ‘big money indicator’ is pointing to more record highs for stocks throughout 2018

Posted on Updated on

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

 

( CNBC ) If you’re worried about the market’s record run coming to an end, one Bank of America strategist says fear not— because there’s a strong technical case for a rally through 2018.

According to Stephen Suttmeier, chief equity technical strategist at Bank of America, the advance-decline line of the S&P 500 Index has broken out in the last month, and points to more gains ahead.

The advance-decline line essentially tracks the moves of the 15-most heavily traded stocks by share volume. Based on Suttmeier’s chart work, a breakout of the line shows that the most-traded stocks in the market are seeing a large number of buyers.

“The bottom line is this: it’s a big money indicator, and last year this big money indicator didn’t confirm the rally until it broke out in December of 2017,” Suttmeier explained to CNBC’s “Futures Now” in an interview last week.

 

DEM BIG DONOR JP MORGAN CEO JAMIE DIMON: TRUMP WILL WIN 2020, NO CHANCE FOR DEMOCRATS

Posted on

 

( CNBC ) JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon walked back a previous prediction that President Donald Trump would only serve one term, telling Fox Business in an interview that the Democrats don’t appear to have a particularly deep bench of contenders for the 2020 general election.

When asked by Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Friday about a comment he made suggesting Trump could be defeated after four years, Dimon said flatly that “I wish I hadn’t said it, I was talking probabilistically.”

He spoke favorably about the passage of comprehensive tax reform, and speculated that Trump could also make headway with plans for infrastructure and education. Predicting presidential candidates, he stated, is “…not my job. My job is to help get good public policy done, help the economy grow and help finance cities…I am not a political expert.”

Dimon is known for being a donor to Democrats, with he and his wife having donated large sums to the party’s candidates, according to Open Secrets, a website that tracks political contributions.

“The thing about the Democrats is they will not have a chance, in my opinion. They don’t have a strong centrist, pro-business, pro-free enterprise person,” Dimon told Fox Business.

“The American public is not clamoring for more government. They were angry about the Great Recession, they blamed banks, they blamed Washington, but they’re also angry about the bureaucracy,” he added.

SO TRUE! Varney: If anyone challenged Obama’s sanity, they would have been out of a job

Posted on Updated on

  • Stuart Varney: Not a word about the president’s actual performance: Strong growth, 2 million new jobs, over 1 million workers getting bonuses, tax cuts and a huge win for everyone’s pension plan! ISIS gone. That is the one year record of this “unfit to serve, dangerous” president!

 

By    FOXBusiness

If anyone had challenged President Obama’s sanity they would be out of a job in ten seconds flat and then banished from respectable society.

 

But, with President Trump it’s a different story: There are no restrictions. Call him what you like.

Thus, the New York Times’ editorial board has this headline: “Is Mr. Trump nuts?” the Times answers its own question, saying it’s beside the point: He is impulsive, erratic, alarming, and unfit to serve.

Not a word about the president’s actual performance: Strong growth, 2 million new jobs, over 1 million workers getting bonuses, tax cuts and a huge win for everyone’s pension plan! ISIS gone. That is the one year record of this “unfit to serve, dangerous” president!

Trump deserves credit for strengthening America’s business-friendly economy, Nissan chairman says

  • Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn: “In fact, I think thanks to the tax reform—we were expecting the car market to go down in 2018—I don’t think it will. I think it will be remaining stable.”

 

( Fox Business ) Citing new policy changes under President Donald Trump, Nissan Motor Co. Chairman Carlos Ghosn said Sunday the U.S. economy is creating a great environment for business.

 

“We think presently the U.S. economy is one of the very positive spots on the planet, and this is something that the industry likes and this is something the industry would like to sustain,” Ghosn told Trish Regan on “Sunday Morning Futures,” regarding the Trump administration’s potential infrastructure deal in particular.

Ghosn, who also serves as chairman and CEO of French automaker Renault, added that the tax reform legislation passed by Republicans in December will likely also benefit the auto industry.

“I think it’s a good thing because obviously we’ll be sustaining [economic] activity,” he said. “In fact, I think thanks to the tax reform—we were expecting the car market to go down in 2018—I don’t think it will. I think it will be remaining stable.”

Police chase after five-times deported illegal immigrant threatens Greyhound bus passengers.

Posted on Updated on

 

Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, was arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot and kill fellow bus passengers aboard a Greyhound bus Friday night.

 

( Fox News ) An illegal immigrant on a Greyhound bus who allegedly threatened to shoot and kill passengers on Friday — leading police on a chase from Wisconsin to Illinois — was deported five times, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson told Fox News.

The spokesperson said on Sunday that Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, who faces terror charges, was in the U.S. illegally and was “removed” from the U.S. the last five times Border Patrol agents encountered him. He also had a previous DUI arrest to his name.

A judge in Illinois on Sunday ordered the suspect held without bond. Vargas-Rosas faces a fugitive-from-justice charge.

Police responded to a call around 9:40 p.m. Friday from a bus passenger who claimed there was a person threatening to kill people, Fox 6 reported, citing the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

Vargas-Rosas, of Chicago, was reportedly pacing the aisle toward the back of the bus, and appeared to draw what passengers thought was a weapon from his waistband.

LAWSUIT FILED BY ANTIFA VICTIMS AGAINST UC BERKELEY, POLICE, CITY, ANTIFA MEMBERS OVER 2017 RIOT

Posted on Updated on

 

( Gateway Pundit ) Four victims of the brutal violence committed by Antifa during the riot in Berkeley last February over Milo Yiannopoulos’ scheduled speaking event have filed a lawsuit against the university, the city, the police, and two of the black clad rioters that they were able to identify.

The lawsuit names UC Berkeley, UCPD, Berkeley PD, the city of Berkeley, two of the assailants that they were able to identify — Ian Dabney Miller and Raha Mirabdal, President of the University of California Janet Napolitano and others for violating their constitutional and statutory rights during the riot in February, 2017.

“By their failure to intervene or employ reasonable tactical methods to ensure the safety of the Plaintiffs and the public, government actors conducted their official duties with deliberate indifference to the Plaintiffs’ safety, permitting hordes of violent rioters to swarm the university campus in a violent rage. By their failure, government actors are thus responsible for creating and exposing Plaintiffs to known and obvious danger,” the lawsuit states.

During the riot, Antifa caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the MLK Student Union and toppled a mobile light structure, setting its generator on fire. The city estimates that the rioters caused between $400,000 and $500,000 in damage to the area surrounding the university.

CONFIRMED! STATS SHOW LIBERALS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE MENTALLY ILL

Posted on Updated on

 

( LouderWithCrowder ) Progressives have done a stellar job of making themselves out to be cuckoo. But now it looks like there’s empirical evidence to back up the idea that leftists are mentally ill. Charts and all…

Political conservatism has been associated with dogmatism, intolerance of ambiguity or uncertainty, a personal need to achieve order, desire for structure and closure, integrative complexity, and fear of threat or loss. It has also been suggested that conservatism should be associated with high levels of anxiety, a major component of the personality trait Neuroticism. Intriguingly, the empirical link between ideology and Neuroticism suggests the relationship is actually between certain facets of liberalism and Neuroticism.

On the graph below, we see the major depression breakdown for the Very Conservative (VC), Conservative (C), Liberal (L), and Very Liberal (VL) cohorts.

Below, we see the rates of bipolar depression among our political cohorts. Again, we see elevations in the Very Liberals and Liberals, especially the females. Out of the 50 Very Conservative females that responded to our survey, none reported bipolar depression.

( 100%fedup) The Clinton’s opened an ugly, old wound today when they came out to join in the coordinated attack by the left of President Donald Trump, who was accused by Democrats of referring to Haiti as a “shithole” during a private meeting about DACA at the White House. 

…. Sitting in a courtroom three years ago, after skipping out on a sizable legal bill, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s youngest brother struck a reassuring tone: Don’t worry, the money is coming.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Tony Rodham said, according to court transcripts uncovered by the New York Times. He gave his word that Hillary and Bill were setting him up with Haitian-government permits to build a $22 million housing development in the earthquake-stricken country.

“I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from,” Rodham explained, promising a $1 million check once the Haitian-government paved the way, enough both to cover the outstanding legal fees and take his family to Disney World.

 

 

The construction deal fell through, but Rodham managed to settle his debt. And the next year, he got another crack at making money in Haiti’s heavily-regulated economy when he joined the advisory board of a company, VCS Mining, which was developing a gold mine on the island. –National Review

 

The Washington Post – Tony Rodham’s involvement with the mine, which has become a source of controversy in Haiti because of concern about potential environmental damage and the belief that the project will primarily benefit foreign investors, was first revealed in publicity about an upcoming book on the Clintons by author Peter Schweizer.

In interviews with The Washington Post, both Rodham and the chief executive of Delaware-based VCS Mining said they were introduced at a meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative — an offshoot of the Clinton Foundation that critics have long alleged invites a blurring of its charitable mission with the business interests of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their corporate donors.

Asked whether he attends CGI meetings to explore personal business opportunities, Rodham responded, “No, I go to see old friends. But you never know what can happen.”

RAND PAUL: TRUMP CARES FOR HAITI, HE HELPED FUND MY MEDICAL MISSION GIVING 200 EYE SURGERIES TO HAITIANS YEARS AGO

Posted on

 

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul brushed off suggestions that President Trump holds a racial animus against Haitians because he once supported Paul’s trip to the Caribbean nation to do eye surgeries on poor Haitians.

Paul said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday that Trump donated money to a medical mission trip Paul took before he was president. Paul did about 200 surgeries on Haitians that allowed them to see while he was on the trip, and he said that’s evidence Trump isn’t prejudiced against the country.

“It is unfair to draw conclusions from a remark that I think wasn’t constructive is the least we can say and I think it is unfair to all of a sudden, paint him, well, he’s a racist, when I know for a fact he cares very deeply about the people in Haiti because he helped to finance a trip, we were able to give vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul said.

The comments come days after Trump reportedly said Haiti and some African nations are “shithole countries.”

RUSSIAN COMPANY BOTH PAID FUSION GPS AND RUSSIAN LAWYER NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA

Posted on Updated on

  • DNC and Hillary Clinton paid Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson to spread bogus Trump-Russia dossier.
  • Simpson was also hired by a U.S. law firm Baker Hostetler to do opposition research for its client, Russian company Prevezon.
  • Prevezon’s lawyer is Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who had a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in Trump Tower.

 

 

PREVEZON, Fusion GPS and Natalia Veselnitskaya

 

In 2013, the US Department of Justice sued Prevezon Holding under the Magnitsky Act for money-laundering. The lawsuit sought forfeiture of various assets and real estate holdings in the US.

The sole shareholder of Prevezon was Russian citizen Denis Katsyv,

 

Denis Katsyv’s Russian lawyer was Natalia Veselnitskaya but she was not licensed to practice in the US.

Katsyv hired the law firm of BakerHostetler to represent Prevezon.

BakerHostetler hired Fusion GPS in early 2014 to provide research help for the litigation.

On June 9, 2016, Veselnitskaya met with Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner in Trump Tower,

From April 2016 through October 2016, the law firm Perkins Coie, on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee retained Fusion GPS to continue opposition research on Trump.

In June 2016, Fusion GPS retained Christopher Steele, a private British corporate intelligence investigator and former MI-6 agent, to research any Russian connections to Trump. Steele produced a 35-page series of memos from June to December 2016, which became the document known as the Donald Trump–Russia dossier.

 

The Magnitsky Act

 

In 2009, Sergei Magnitsky, a lawyer who had accused Moscow law enforcement of stealing $230 million in tax rebates from his client was beaten to death in jail.

In 2012, Magnitsky’s client, Bill Browder, secured passage of the Magnitsky Act, which imposed sanctions on the officials involved. Russian President Vladimir Putin responded by banning adoptions by Americans.[8]

Prevezon and the Department of Justice settled the case in May 2017 for $5.9 million.

TRANSCRIPT: PAUL MANAFORT NOTES AT TRUMP TOWER RUSSIA MEETING – RUSSIAN ADOPTIONS, CYPRUS, RNC

Posted on

 

( Daily Caller ) Notes taken by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort during the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting refer to “Russian adoptions by American families,” according to a transcript of a Senate Judiciary Committee interview released this week.

The notes provide the first contemporaneous evidence that shows that Russia’s adoption policy was discussed during that June 9, 2016 meeting, which members of the Trump campaign attended along with a Russian government lawyer and Russian-American lobbyist.

The notes, portions of which were revealed to Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson during his Aug. 22 Senate Judiciary Committee interview, also appear to make no overt reference to anything resembling collusion.

Many of the meeting attendees — including Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya — have previously claimed that adoption policy was discussed in the meeting, but no evidence had been made public.

…Business Insider first flagged a portion of the transcript which shows Simpson reviewing Manafort’s notes, which he reportedly took on an iPhone.

Simpson, whose firm commissioned the infamous Trump dossier, was showed the notes because at the time of the Trump Tower meeting, he was working with Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who also attended the meeting.

Simpson’s work with the two Russians dealt directly with the topics that they allegedly discussed with the Trump team.

According to the Senate transcript, Simpson read off several items in the notes, including “Active sponsors of RNC,” “Value in Cyprus as inter,” and “Illici.”

He also identified the phrase “Russian adoptions by American families.”

MARK ZUCKERBERG LOST $3.3 BILLION: FACEBOOK STOCK FELL AFTER NEWS TO SUPPRESS NEWS FEEDS, WILL PRIORITIZE FAMILY AND FRIENDS POSTS

Posted on

 

( Daily Mail ) Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to prioritize posts from family and friends over brand-driven content on Facebook’s News Feed has cost him a small fortune, it was reported on Saturday.

The CEO of the world’s largest social media network lost $3.3billion off his net worth on Friday, Bloomberg News reported.

Facebook shares fell 4.5 percent on Friday after the closing bell on Wall Street.

Zuckerberg, who began the day worth $77.8billion, is now worth $74billion, according to Bloomberg.

That means Spanish retail billionaire Amancio Ortega has now leapfrogged Zuckerberg to take fourth place on the list of the world’s richest people.

Both Zuckerberg and Ortega have a ways to go to catch the world’s wealthiest human, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Zuckerberg said on Thursday the company would change the filter for the News Feed to prioritize what friends and family share, while reducing the amount of non-advertising content from publishers and brands.

HOW FACEBOOK WILL PRIORITIZE FRIENDS IN YOUR NEWS FEED

Up until now, Facebook has prioritized material that its algorithms think people will engage with through comments, ‘likes’ or other ways of showing interest.

But 33-year-old founder Mark Zuckerberg says he wants to change the focus to help users have ‘more meaningful social interactions.’

The move follows his resolution in 2018 to ‘fix’ the site.

It is also in response to criticism that Facebook and its social media competitors reinforce users’ views on social and political issues.

Critics also say sites like Facebook lead to addictive viewing habits.

Zuckerberg cited research that suggests reading ‘passively’ on social media was damaging for people’s mental health, while interacting proactively with friends was positive.

According to Adam Mosseri, Facebook’s New Feed boss, in practice the change mean

  • Posts from friends and family will get more prominence that video, news, and other content from formal Facebook pages, such as companies and celebrities
  • The number of comments on a post will count more than the number of Likes
  • Posts where people have spend the time to write lengthy comments will be prioritized over those with only short comments
  • While, news and video will still appear in News Feed, the number of friends sharing it will matter more than its overall popularity

The shift could mean that the time people spend on Facebook and some measures of engagement would go down in the short term.

However, Zuckerberg said it would be better for users and for the business over the long term.
