House Republican Introduces Resolution to Toss Adam Schiff From Intel Committee

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced a resolution calling for the resignation of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff over his handling of the Russian collusion hoax.

Schiff has faced repeated calls from Republicans to step down from his post after using special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to espouse conspiracy theories and promoting his own position as one of authority to promote false accusations against the President.

John Bolton Took Money From Clinton Foundation Donor, Banks Tied To Cartels, Terrorists, Iran

On June 12, 2018 The Washington Post ran an overlooked story where they disclosed that National Security Advisor John Bolton had accepted money from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, Deutsche Bank and HSBC to return for his participation in speeches and panel discussions. These three entities have been linked to various kinds of corruption including sanctions evasion for Iran, money laundering on behalf of drug cartels, provision of banking services to backers of Islamic terror organizations and controversial donations to the Clinton Foundation.

The financial ties between Bolton and these institutions highlight serious ethical concerns about his suitability for the position of National Security Advisor.

The US Attorney's Office in Washington has said in a statement that Obama administration White House counsel Greg Craig, 74, is charged in a two-count indictment. He's accused of wilfully hiding material facts from the Justice Department.

Michael Avenatti Charged With Stealing Millions From a Paraplegic Client

On Thursday, Michael Avenatti, the attorney who formerly represented Stormy Daniels and was was briefly regarded by some as the great white hope for the Democratic Party, was charged in a massive 36-count grand jury indictment, which alleges that he stole millions of dollars from clients, committed bank fraud and perjury, and failed to pay his taxes, among other things. He faces up to 335 years in prison.

“Michael Avenatti allegedly stole from his clients, and he stole from the IRS,” Ryan L. Korner, the head of Los Angeles’ Internal Revenue Service criminal investigations unit, told the Los Angeles Times. “The money was used to fuel a lavish lifestyle that had no limits, including making mortgage payments on a multimillion-dollar home in Laguna Beach and purchasing a private plane.”

New Bernie Sanders healthcare plan is even more absurd than his old one

The 2020 Democratic presidential nomination fight has barely gotten started, but Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has already managed to accomplish an incredible feat: He has come up with a new healthcare plan even more absurd than his old one.

Sanders' new version of the plan, which he brands as “Medicare for all” because it polls better than socialized healthcare, maintains the central structure of the version of the plan that has been estimated to cost a whopping $32 trillion, but then makes promised benefits even more generous. Yet it has been endorsed by several rivals for the Democratic nomination: Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Name ONE TIME a government program accomplished its goal

Illinois has the worst credit rating of any state.

It has $8 billion in outstanding bills and a $3.2 billion deficit in just next year’s budget.

But the worst part is the $250 billion they need to pay their state pensions…

When you or I have debt, the first thing we have to do is tighten the belt. We save money and cut expenses.

But imagine if instead you could just waltz up to your boss and demand a raise. And not because you’re doing more work, or because you hit a home-run with last quarter’s goals… just because you got yourself into debt.

If Illinois was an employee, they would have been fired by now. They haven’t hit any of their goals and continuously fail to deliver on the promises they have made.

But the taxpayers will once again face tax increases in order to pay for more government, more promises, and more mismanaged policy.

In One Stunning Clip, Maxine Waters Proves She’s the Dumbest Person in Congress

The House Banking Committee, led by (ahem) “distinguished” Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), called in the nation’s top bankers on Wednesday to arrogantly lecture them on greed and political correctness.

During her questioning Mad Maxine asked the bankers about what they were doing with their own loan policies to help those suffering with massive student loan debt.

Each of the bankers on the panel sat for a moment in stunned silence, and then — trying to hide a smirk — quickly reminded the Banking Committee Chairperson that they no longer make ANY student loans.

As in…NONE.

Not since the Federal government took over the program in 2010.

Democratic “Superdelegates” May Once Again Rob Bernie Sanders of the Nomination

According to recent polling data compiled by Real Clear Politics for the Democratic 2020 nomination, Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the clear front-runner among the contenders who have already declared their candidacy. Indeed, among declared candidates, Sanders has a double-digit lead, averaging over 21 percent, while the other most popular, declared candidates, Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Beto O’Rourke, trail behind at 9.9 percent and 8.9 percent respectively.

Though the recent party reforms aimed at Democratic party insiders, often referred to as “superdelegates,” may have given the Sanders camp the impression that they will not be subject to the same dirty tactics that occurred in the 2016 election cycle, the past few months have revealed the strategy of corporate Democrats to keep the “progressive” frontrunner from winning the nomination regardless of whether he wins the popular vote or not.

Making Sense of Our Russiagate Failure

The most consequential function of journalists is not reporting facts, but establishing a narrative framework for making sense of those facts. In the wake of the Mueller investigation’s whimper-like conclusion, it is apparent that the roots of the Trump-Russia failure—and there is no question that the vast majority of media coverage merited some sort of reverse Pulitzer prize—lay in a collective refusal to subject the story’s broad narrative to critical scrutiny.

For many, that narrative was powerfully attractive. It argued that the triumph of an ill-mannered, self-worshipping, know-nothing reality show star in the 2016 election was not the product of our political establishment’s alienation of key middle American constituencies or the weakness of Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy. Rather, it was the result of Russia’s malign influence, which co-opted and conspired with Donald Trump to subvert American democracy and the broader international order.

It Begins: Ex-Obama Counsel To Be Indicted Following Mueller Probe

In what will be the first case linked to Robert Mueller's report since the special counsel concluded President Trump did not collude with Russia; The New York Times reports that lawyers for Gregory B. Craig, a White House counsel in the Obama administration, expect him to be indicted in the coming days on charges related to his work for the Russia-aligned government of Ukraine.

The 74-year-old legal heavyweight, who served in senior legal roles for two Democratic presidents, reportedly refused to accept a plea deal, and the matter could be presented to a grand jury for indictment as soon as Thursday.

Mr. Craig served as the White House counsel to President Obama for the first year of his administration. He also served as a senior legal adviser to President Bill Clinton during the impeachment inquiry into the president’s conduct.

Kevin McCarthy Challenges Democrats To Name One Problem They’ve Solved Since Winning The Majority

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy challenged Democrats on Wednesday to list the problems, if any, that the House of Representatives has solved under the new Democratic leadership.

“We are three days away from the 100-day mark of Democrats holding the majority of the House … and you can sum up the first hundred days in three words: radicalism, resistance and resolutions,” McCarthy said during a press conference outside the Capitol Building.

“I have one question for the Democrats after 100 days,” he continued. “What have you accomplished?”

McCarthy noted the House was scheduled to vote on a two-year budget plan, but that Speaker Nancy Pelosi abandoned the vote after the progressive wing of her caucus demanded more spending on social programs and revolted against the legislation.

I challenge the entire government to name any problems they have solved in the last decade!

New Reuters Poll Proves That Many Americans Can’t Think for Themselves

It is generally believed that America is more polarized than ever. After all, one need only look at the fallout from the last election to test this theory: both liberals and conservatives are convinced that their ideas and principles are the best and should be followed.

But a recent survey by Reuters casts a bit of doubt on how well people really know their own minds and understand the political principles they say they adhere to. It appears that many Americans base their views on whether a particular authority figure holds them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And therein lies the doom of our society.

Katie Porter Takes on Jamie Dimon

At ‘Megabank’ Hearing, Freshman Rep. Katie Porter Takes on Jamie Dimon—and His $31M Salary
The California Democrat and law school professor has shown a unique confrontation style, giving plenty of discussion points for white-collar and congressional lawyers preparing clients. Wednesday's hearing was no exception.
***.
Drawing from the hourly wage listed on an online job posting, along with average housing costs and a minimal food budget, Porter painted a picture of a low-level JPMorgan Chase employee supporting a 6-year-old daughter in Irvine, California. At the $16.50 hourly wage she said she found on a Monster.com posting, the mother would face at least a $567 shortfall each month after taxes and expenses, Porter calculated.

“My question for you, Mr. Dimon, is, how should she manage this budget shortfall while she’s working full-time at your bank?” Porter asked.

Presidential Candidate Cory Booker Loves Himself Some AIPAC And Israel

How do you take a typical progressive and turn him or her into a fascist? One possible way is to send the poor bastard off on an all expenses paid trip to Israel where a meticulously crafted and sophisticated brainwashing program will make one believe almost anything regarding the noble and God-chosen Israelis versus the satanic Arab terrorists. Add into that the fact that being pro-Israel is a plus in many career fields and it is easy to understand why a monster like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gets favorable press and commentary in the United States even as he is reviled in most of the rest of the world.

The liberal to fascist metamorphosis is most evident among Democratic Party politicians, who have been successfully targeted by the Israel Lobby and its deep pocketed supporters for many years. It is all part of a massive public relations campaign, which some might instead refer to as disinformation, planned and executed by the Israeli foreign ministry and its diaspora supporters to advance Israeli interests in spite of the fact that the government of Netanyahu has implemented and executed fundamentally anti-democratic programs while at the same time committing war crimes and violating a whole series of United Nations resolutions.

Egypt Withdraws From US-Led “Arab Nato” Initiative Against Iran

Egypt has pulled out of the US effort to forge an “Arab NATO” with key Arab allies, according to four sources familiar with the decision, in a blow to the Trump administration’s strategy to contain Iranian power, Reuters reports.

Egypt withdrew because it doubted the seriousness of the initiative, had yet to see a formal blueprint laying it out, and because of the danger that the plan would increase tensions with Iran, said an Arab source who, like the others, spoke on condition of anonymity.

Uncertainty about whether US President Donald Trump will win a second term next year and whether a successor may ditch the initiative also contributed to the Egyptian decision>>>

Scott Morrison has confirmed the Australian federal election will be held on May 18.

Speaking from Parliament House this morning, the Australian Prime Minister finally put an end to speculation over the date.

"We live in the best country in the world," Morrison said. "But to secure your future, the road ahead depends on a strong economy. And that's why there is so much at stake at this election."

He commended his Government for delivering the "first budget surplus in more than a decade", saying the Liberal Party would keep unemployment down, secure borders and guarantee funding for schools, hospitals and infrastructure.

'A mountain gave birth to a mouse': Vladimir Putin mocks Mueller's investigation into Russia's 'meddling' and says it was 'clear from the start it would end like this'

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday mocked US special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Kremlin interference in the 2016 presidential election, saying 'a mountain gave birth to a mouse.'

In his first comments since Mueller finished his probe, Putin sought to cast the 22-month investigation as a failure and disregarded the special counsel's exposure of a Russian operation to put Trump in the White House.

'It was clear for us from the start that it would end like this,' the Russian leader said as President Donald Trump's administration and Congress sparred over making Mueller's still-confidential investigation report public.

Former FBI Counsel: Top Officials Discussed Wearing Wire, 25th Amendment to OUST TRUMP

James Baker, the former top lawyer for the FBI, testified that officials had a “list” of options in dealing with President Trump following then-FBI Director James Comey’s firing. The list reportedly included wearing a wire or invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

The revelation was made during the second day of testimony by Baker regarding the Russia probe in October. House Republicans released a transcript of the shocking statements on Tuesday.

On the first day of Baker’s testimony, a day which one lawmaker described as “explosive,” he insisted that outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s reported idea to record the President and use the evidence to push Trump out of office was quite serious.

According to the New York Times, memos written by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe show that Rosenstein offered to wear a wire during meetings with Trump.

Leaked Google Memos Reveal Aggressive "News Blacklist" Used Against Conservative Sites

Leaked internal documents reveal that Google maintains a blacklist preventing certain news outlets from appearing in search results for news or other specific sections, according to the Daily Caller's J. Arthur Bloom.

What this means is that while search results from blacklisted outlets will still appear in the generic "ten blue links" portion of search results - targeted sites will not be allowed in sections such as "top news" or "videos," according to the report.

"The purpose of the blacklist will be to bar the sites from surfacing in any Search feature or news product. It will not cause a demotion in the organic search results or de-index them altogether," reads the policy document.

Of note, Zero Hedge was removed from Google's News category after the 2016 US election.

100 Days into 2nd Speakership, Nancy Pelosi Loses Control of House Floor, Withdraws Budget Bill Before Vote

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lost control of the House floor on Tuesday, withdrawing from consideration before a vote what was presumed to be a mundane, run-of-the-mill, typical political messaging bill on the budget due to widespread division in her own House Democrat conference.

Bloomberg News’ Erik Wasson and Jack Fitzpatrick reported on Tuesday afternoon:

House Democratic leaders shelved a plan to pass a bill increasing budget caps for the next two fiscal years amid infighting between their caucus’s liberal and moderate wings. Liberals demanded $33 billion more for domestic social programs in 2020 as the price of their support, while some moderates opposed the bill over its lack of spending cuts in mandatory entitlement programs to offset the impact on the deficit. Republicans slammed the House majority for failing to produce a budget so far this year.

Reckoning With Failure In The War On Terror

Donald Trump’s ascendancy to the presidency, as Max Blumenthal points out in his insightful book “The Management of Savagery: How America’s National Security State Fueled the Rise of Al Qaeda, ISIS, and Donald Trump,” was made possible not only by massive social inequality and concentration of wealth and political power in the hands of the oligarchic elites but by the national security state’s disastrous and prolonged military interventions overseas.
