Hands off ‘our hemisphere’ or Venezuela pays the price: US Senator warns Russia

This is pathetic. Without Venezuela and their gold the district of criminals is finished!

The US staked a claim on half the world, as Senate Armed Services Committee chair Jim Inhofe said Washington might have to intervene in Venezuela if Russia dares set up a military base not just there, but “in our hemisphere.”
“I think that it could happen,” Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) told a group of reporters on Tuesday. “You’ve got a guy down there that is killing everybody. You could have him put together a base that Russia would have on our hemisphere. And if those things happen, it may be to the point where we’ll have to intervene with troops and respond.”

Food industry criminality

In 1999, the CEOs of Kraft, Nabisco, Coca Cola and General Mills, met in Minneapolis to review the facts.

First, they got rid of employees who called the problem to their their attention.

Then they went after the scientists to destroy the reputation of anyone who studied the problem.

How Western money funds overthrow-your-government classes

Revolution is the new black: How Western money funds overthrow-your-government classes
***
The Camp?amp 2018 forum in Yerevan was sponsored by the Prague Civil Society Centre, an organization financed by the United States under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). Section 254 of the Act allocated $250,000 for activities to “counter Russian influence” in 2018 and 2019. Capitol Hill lawmakers seem to believe that this “Russian influence” is a threat to all NATO’s actual and potential members, including Georgia, Moldova, Kosovo, Serbia, and Ukraine.

The Yerevan gathering is proving that the State Department’s money is doing its job all right.>>>

George Soros Panics: Right-Wing Parties Rising All Over Europe Will Lead to 'Oblivion'

Billionaire globalist George Soros, who helped fund the migrant invasion of Europe to the tune of some $500 million, is now panicking over the rise of right-wing parties throughout the EU.

Rather than take responsibility for his actions, apologize to the people of Europe and start a fund to deport all the migrants he paid to bring in, he has instead chosen to fearmonger that the end is nigh if Europeans actually start voting in their own self-interest.

Rep.

Warsaw Middle East summit: A bid to isolate Iran?

Widely perceived as a US attempt to isolate Iran, Arab and European delegates will gather alongside Israel's Netanyahu.
Even if all EU countries shared the same position on the nuclear agreement, "the overall mood in Europe vis-a-vis Iran has become more critical, given Iranian assassination attempts that took place on EU soil as well as Iran's ballistic missiles that could reach Eastern Europe."

The quick end of the border debate.

Lot's of bovine excrement is being thrown around about the border. No wall will work, etc.

However there is one example you can use. The state of Hawaii. It has a 100% natural border, and does it have immigrants, drug problems, murder rates, similar to that of the mainland USA?

It's these facts you can use to prove that a 100% border does work.

Oh and the question of immoral. Are the pearly gates at Heaven, known as the Gate of St.Peter immoral? Or should Heaven accept murders and rapists, as that is surely immoral and a similar to the Demonrats allowing all immigrants in warts and all!

Stop ACTA 2: Protests, Internet Blackouts and Hacktivist Actions To Lead Up To Final Vote On Dystopian Articles 11 and 13 In EU

By Aaron Kesel

After a short delay, European Union lawmakers are continuing their journey to censor the Internet and have agreed on changes to the text of Articles 11,12 and 13, The Independent reported. Meanwhile, Anonymous and Pirates are planning on-the-ground and online actions against the proposed Copyright Directives.

Trump Calls on Rep. Ilhan Omar to Resign Over Anti-Semitic Tweets

President Donald Trump slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apology for publishing anti-Semitic tweets, saying it was “lame” and called on her to resign from Congress.

Omar went on an anti-Semitic twitter rant over the weekend, prompting a backlash from prominent politicians on both sides of the political aisle. She used a stereotype about Jews being motivated by money, then accused a prominent lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), of paying members of Congress to support Israel.

Upon getting heat from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the remarks, Omar issued an apology that amounted to ‘sorry, not sorry.’

Trump Calls For Rep. Omar To Resign As Conservatives Fume Over Democrat Double-Standards

Conservatives are fuming after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over a Sunday night tweet widely interpreted as anti-Semitic, followed by a criticism of pro-Israel money in US politics. Omar issued a Monday apology, which many have compared to Rep. Steve King (R-IA) - who apologized in January over controversial remarks, yet was stripped of his committee assignments after Congressional Democrats demanded his removal.

“Bipartisan” Firearms Background Checks Bill Is More Useless Federal Legislation

We elect politicians to improve our lives. To expand our freedoms and protect our rights. Passing the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 will do none of those things. What it will do is outlaw a perfectly legal activity, make it more difficult for honest people to protect themselves and their loved ones, and have no impact on crime. -- We didn’t send those politicians to Washington to make life easier for the bad guys. Maybe it’s time to remind them of that.

Majority Of Small Business Owners Think Recession Is Coming This Year

A nationwide survey of more than 10,000 Americans conducted by SurveyMonkey in January also found a high level of recession anxiety. Main Street looks like they understand just how glaringly bad things can become. 63 percent of Americans say a recession is likely in the next year and only 10 percent saying it was “very unlikely.” But are Americans prepared for a recession? Most analysts say no, as it seems no lessons were learned after the 2008 Great Recession.

Devin Nunes: Task force combing through transcripts for criminal referrals in FBI bias investigation

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., says a cadre of House Intelligence Committee Republicans are now involved in sifting through more than a dozen transcripts as they consider making criminal referrals for an investigation into alleged political bias in the FBI.

Furthering the work begun by a joint GOP task force comprised of the Judiciary Committee and the Oversight Committee, which last year was headed by now-retired Chairmen Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.; and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., Nunes said the effort is getting a second wind.

"We will be continuing that task force, except that the House Intelligence Committee Republicans will be involved," Nunes, who is the ranking member of the panel, said in an interview with the Hill.TV that aired Monday.

Are the Democrats Bent on Suicide?

After reading an especially radical platform agreed upon by the British Labor Party, one Tory wag described it as “the longest suicide note in history.”

The phrase comes to mind on reading of the resolution calling for a Green New Deal, advanced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and endorsed by at least five of the major Democratic candidates for president.

The Green New Deal is designed to recall the halcyon days of the 1930s, when, so the story goes, FDR came to Washington to enact the historic reforms that rescued America from the Great Depression.

Only that story is more than a small myth.

Green New Deal Would Kill Almost Everyone, Warns Greenpeace Co-Founder

The “Green New Deal” proposed by congressional Democrats is a “recipe for mass suicide” and the “most ridiculous scenario I ever heard,” Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore (shown) warned in an exclusive interview with The New American. In fact, Dr. Moore warned that if the “completely preposterous” prescriptions in the scheme were actually implemented, Americans could be forced to turn to cannibalism to avoid starvation — and they still would not survive. Other experts such as Craig Rucker, the executive director of the environmental group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), also sounded the alarm about the “green” proposal in Congress, comparing it to Soviet five-year plans and calling it a “prescription for disaster.”

Moore: Corfman still refusing to give depositions

The woman who accused former Alabama Chief Justice and Senate candidate Roy Moore of abusing her as a 15-year-old still has not given any depositions under oath, even though she is the one who sued Moore for defamation. Moore has since countersued.

The case of Corfman v Moore in Montgomery County has been pending for over a year and, according to the Moore defense team, Leigh Corfman has yet to appear before a court reporter to give her testimony under oath.

Moore appeared for an entire day to give sworn testimony under extensive examination by Corfman‘s attorneys, however, she has successfully avoided numerous motions to compel her testimony.

Judicial Watch: FBI General Counsel Talked to Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer about Comey’s Letter on Weiner Laptop Clinton Emails

On October 28, 2016, the day that Comey sent a letter to Congress regarding the FBI’s discovery that the Weiner laptop contained Clinton’s emails. Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer David Kendall, within hours, emails Baker requesting a call “ASAP” about the Comey letter. Baker describes his follow-up call to senior FBI officials:

I received the email below from David Kendall and I called him back. Before doing so I alerted DOJ via email that I would do that.

[Redacted paragraph]

He said that our letter was “tantalizingly ambiguous” and made statements that were “inchoate and highly ominous” such that what we had done was worse than transparency because it allows people to make whatever they want out to make out of the letter to the prejudice of Secretary Clinton.

Antifa activist facing assault charges was tied to Democratic policymakers

On Monday, the 37-year-old has a court date in connection with charges he’s facing in Philadelphia that include aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation for allegedly being part of an Antifa mob in November that attacked two Marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, both Hispanic. Alcoff and two others charged in the attack have pleaded not guilty.

But while Democratic officials are distancing themselves from Alcoff now, until recently he was a well-connected, aspiring political player in Washington who may have even had a hand in key policy proposals.

His endorsement apparently mattered when several congressional Democrats in February 2018 issued press releases with his quote backing their bill on regulating payday lenders.

Ilhan Omar says AIPAC influences Congress using money and Israel supporters erupt in fury

As you surely know by now, the United States political class is talking about whether AIPAC, the leading pro-Israel group the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, wields its influence in Congress using money.

Last night Glenn Greenwald seized on the news that House minority leader Kevin McCarthy intends to investigate two Muslim congresswomen, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, over their criticisms of Israel and remarked —

It’s stunning how much time US political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans

‘It was definitely about the Benjamins’ — former campaign staffer details AIPAC’s far-reaching financial power

In 2006, I was the first real staffer on a long-shot Democratic Congressional race in deep red Ohio. My boss was a hippie doctor with a lefty perspective on international affairs. . . .very skeptical of military force, opposed to the Israeli occupation of Palestine, etc.

A month after winning the Dem primary, we were struggling to gain attention or money. Nobody gave us a snowball’s chance to win. But one political action org proactively reached out to us.
It wasn’t Emily’s List, although we were fiercely prochoice. Wasn’t a doctor’s lobby or an enviro or labor org. It was AIPAC.

Democratic Party leadership, in bed with AIPAC, condemns Ilhan Omar for ‘anti-Semitic… accusations’

It did not take long for the other shoe to drop. The six official leaders of the Democratic House have condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota for “anti-Semitism” and “hatred” because she tweeted last night that the Israel lobby group AIPAC has influence over the Congress “because of the Benjamins” — the money AIPAC helps funnel to Congress to support Israel.

The leaders issued a statement:

Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those leaders just guaranteed more AIPAC support for their next elections!

The ad suggests that Netanyahu’s chief rival, Benny Gantz, is depending on the support of the left and Palestinian political parties.

Behar and McCain Clash in ‘Hissy Fit’ Over Democrat Amy Klobuchar’s Candidacy

ABC News’ “The View” co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain clashed awkwardly during a Monday segment in which they discussed Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) presidential bid — and Behar even accused McCain of throwing a “hissy fit.”

Klobuchar (shown above center) officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign on Sunday.

She formally made her announcement outside during a snow storm.

But Klobuchar found herself engulfed in controversy last week when reports portraying her as a temperamental and hostile employer circulated.

President Donald Trump took note of Klobuchar’s entry into the crowded Democratic field.

He tweeted on Sunday, “Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for president, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a snowman(woman)!”

Adam Schiff Is Trying To Delegitimize Trump by Investigating His Finances

On a Sunday morning talk show, Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to continue investigating President Trump’s finances and foreign connections for as long as it takes.

So, let me get this right: Hillary Clinton, a politician, or to be more specific, a former secretary of State, can sell the Russians our uranium but Donald Trump, a businessman, cannot conduct business in a foreign country, like any other American entrepreneur?

It is evident that the left will not be satisfied until Trump is gone. They must be worried he will win in 2020. How anyone can not see their motivation for launching intensive investigation after investigation is beyond me.

Poll: 75% of Americans Oppose Outlawing Boycotts of Israel

New legislation passed in the Senate seeks to legalize the right of individual state governments to force American companies to certify they won’t engage in economic boycotts of Israel as a condition for receiving government contracts.

The "Combating BDS Act of 2019" is embedded as Title IV within the ‘‘Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019’’ (S.1). If signed into law, S.1 would allow states to withhold government funding from entities unwilling to certify they will not boycott Israel. Most existing state anti-BDS measures require pledge forms that contractors must sign as a condition for winning or renewing contracts

But only 22.5% of American adults favor anti-boycott measures. A new representative IRmep poll conducted through Google Surveys finds that 74.9% of Americans oppose forcing government contractors to forswear boycotts.

Kamala Harris’ A.G. Office Tried to Keep Inmates Locked Up for Cheap Labor

Ordered to reduce the population of California’s overcrowded prisons, lawyers from then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ office made the case that some non-violent offenders needed to stay incarcerated or else the prison system would lose a source of cheap labor.

In 2011, the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Plata that California’s prisons were so overcrowded that they violated the Constitution’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment. Three years later, in early 2014, the state was ordered to allow non-violent, second time offenders who have served half of their sentence to be eligible for parole.

US Senate Probe Finds No Evidence of Alleged Trump-Russia Collusion - Reports

The US Senate Intelligence Committee has found no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 US presidential election, NBC News reported on Tuesday.

The bipartisan committee, which is nearing the end of its investigation, has found no proof that US President Donald Trump formed a corrupt pact with Russia to offer sanctions relief or other favorable treatment in return for Russian help during the election, NBC News reported citing Democrats and Republics on the committee.

Solomon: Evidence Mounts Of Democrats' Collusion With Russia

After Congressional investigations in both the House and Senate have failed to produce evidence that Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 US election from Hillary Clinton, The Hill's John Solomon points out the deafening silence over clear links between the Kremlin and the woman who would have been President had Donald Trump lost.

Aside from the fact that the Clinton-funded Steele Dossier heavily relied on a Russian source. And the fact that John Podesta (who would have likely become Secretary of State) sat on the board of an energy company with a Kremlin official and a Russian oligarch - tangible evidence of Russian collusion exists. Once again, Solomon digs deeper into the upside-down to reveal Russian ties that would see Donald Trump jailed for treason by the left's standards.

Congressional investigators have painstakingly pieced together evidence that shows the Clinton research project had extensive contact with Russians.

Pelosi added in a tweet accompanying her statement that she had spoken with Omar and the two “agreed that we must use this moment to move forward as we reject anti-Semitism in all forms.”

Sweetheart Deals, Honey Traps: Analyst on Epstein Sex Scandal, Mueller, Clintons

Being Marco Rubio

Americans consistently indicate in opinion polls that they approve of congress less than any other part of the federal government. The approval rating is sometimes in the single digits. As the congress was intended, per the Founders, to serve as the direct link to the American people, there is a certain irony in its being the most despised branch of government.

One can blame the two major parties for much of the negativity, as the process whereby candidates for office rise through the system that seems designed to weed out anyone who has ever expressed any viewpoint that is not approved by the bipartisan establishment. Indeed, many Americans complain that Democratic and Republican congress critters differ only superficially, both being corrupt from top to bottom and largely driven to stay on top so they can continue to benefit personally from the spoils of office.

Trudeau in ethics probe over handling of Libyan contract fraud

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is being investigated for illegally attempting to shield engineering firm SNC-Lavalin from criminal fraud and corruption charges involving millions of dollars in bribes to the Libyan government.

Trudeau claims he “welcomes” the probe, launched by the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner on Monday after requests from two New Democrat MPs followed on the heels of an incendiary report published last week in the Globe and Mail that placed him at the center of what the Conservative opposition has termed an “unprecedented” effort to illegally influence a criminal proceeding.

US Muslim lawmakers irk pro-Israel lobby by backing BDS movement

The first two Muslim women in the US Congress have angered the pro-Israel lobby by openly supporting the internationally-recognized Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who became the first Muslim members of the House of Representatives in January, have been outspoken about their criticism of Israel’s crimes against the people of Palestine.

Omar has accused the Tel Aviv regime of discrimination against Palestinians similar to apartheid.

In January, she enraged the large pro-Israel contingent in Congress, particularly the largely Democratic US Jewish community, by mocking America’s branding of Israel as a democracy.

“When I see Israeli institute laws that recognize it as a Jewish state and does not recognize the other religions that are living in it, and we still hold it as a democracy in the Middle East, I almost chuckle,” Omar told Yahoo News.

Ilhan Omar under attack for telling truth about Israel lobby

Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is under fierce attack from Chelsea Clinton and other Republican and Democratic establishment figures for voicing a fundamental truth: much of Congress is muzzled when it comes to Israel by the powerful lobby group AIPAC.

On Sunday, journalist Glenn Greenwald highlighted a news story about how Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy wants to punish Omar, and fellow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, for their criticisms of Israel.

In a perverse move, McCarthy tried to equate the two women’s support for Palestinian rights with notorious Republican Congressman Steve King’s white supremacism.

“It’s stunning how much time US political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans,” Greenwald tweeted.
