This Could Be It: Key Polish Political Party Comes Out Against Article 13

By Cory Doctorow

With only days to go before the final EU debate and vote on the new Copyright Directive (we’re told the debate will be at 0900h CET on Tuesday, 27 March, and the vote will happen at 1200h CET), things could not be more urgent and fraught. That’s why today’s announcement by Poland’s Platformy Obywatelska—the second-largest party in the European People’s Party (EPP) bloc—is so important...

Emailgate: Clinton Discussed Top Secret US Middle East Issues on Private Account

The new batch of Hillary Clinton emails obtained by Judicial Watch contains messages that the former secretary of state tried to delete, according to the watchdog. The latest collection casts doubt on Clinton's 2015 statement under oath that she handed all her confidential work-related emails to the State Department.

On 21 March Judicial Watch, a US conservative watchdog, announced that it had received 756 pages of newly discovered emails circulated by Hillary Clinton and her respondents through private email servers and unsecured devices during her tenure as a secretary of state. According to the watchdog, several emails in the recent batch contained classified information.

"This final batch of Clinton emails includes five new classified emails and communications with controversial figures Lanny Davis and Sidney Blumenthal", Judicial Watch pointed out.

Eric Bolling CONFRONTS Man Who Made Despicable Comments About His Late Son

On March 20, 2019, Eric Bolling was sitting with some friends at the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C. when a man walked by his table and said, loud enough for them to hear, Eric’s son "killed himself because he was embarrassed by his dad.” Eric followed the hate-fueled man out of the hotel and started filming what came next. Eric delves into what the video reveals, and has a strong message for the guy who wielded such gut-wrenching words with a crooked smile.

Comey Leaked Memos In Order To Spark Mueller Probe. Now He Says He Doesn’t Care What Investigation Uncovers

James Comey claimed in an op-ed Thursday that he does not care one way or the other whether special counsel Robert Mueller finds evidence that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election or obstructed the FBI’s collusion probe.

But the claim, which Comey made in The New York Times, is at odds with the former FBI director’s testimony about his actions shortly after being fired by Trump in May 2017.

George Conway: Trump 'thinks he needs to be re-elected to avoid indictment'

George Conway said Friday that President Trump "thinks he needs to be re-elected to avoid being indicted," taking another public shot on Twitter at the president.

Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, came under attack from Trump this week after Conway questioned the president's mental fitness — a jab he made again on Friday.

The two have engaged in a bitter fight over Twitter and in presidential interviews with reporters all week.

“THINK about the fact that we don’t just have a mentally unstable president—but a president who thinks he needs to be re-elected to avoid being indicted. (At least in that one respect his thinking is clear.),” Conway tweeted.

Several 2020 Democrats to skip AIPAC conference after call to boycott

Several Democratic presidential candidates will skip the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's policy conference this year after a prominent progressive group called on them to boycott the event.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will all ditch the conference, the Associated Press reported, and a spokesman for former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, told NBC News that he also will not attend.

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, will not be going, The Jewish Week reported, and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro also won't show, according to HuffPost.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is considering running for president as an independent, will also skip the conference, the Associated Press reported.

Israel partisans create yet another pro-Israel lobby group

AIPAC-connected officials are about to launch yet another pro-Israel political action committee, “Pro-Israel America,” which will be be targeting smaller donors. It hopes to give pro-Israel candidates from both parties at least $2 million in the 2020 elections. It has already endorsed 27 candidates.

Palestinian peace activist barred from entering the United States

A Palestinian peace activist was denied entry to the United States and deported, despite having a valid visa.

Osama Iliwat, 42, was questioned over the course of eight hours by officials from Customs and Border Protection at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City on Feb. 24 before he was sent on a flight back home. He was embarking on a speaking tour for Combatants for Peace, a group of Israelis and Palestinians who, according to its website, “have taken an active part in the cycle of violence; Israelis as soldiers in the Israeli army and Palestinians as part of the violent struggle for Palestinian freedom,” but now advocate joint nonviolent activism.

Leading Advocacy Group MoveOn Urges Democratic Presidential Candidates to Boycott AIPAC

In a tweet, MoveOn members decided to call on Democratic presidential candidates to boycott AIPAC's conference after over 74 percent of its members expressed support for the move in an online survey.

MoveOn, a progressive advocacy group with millions of members, is calling on Democratic presidential candidates to boycott the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) annual conference.

"It's no secret that AIPAC has worked to hinder diplomatic efforts like the Iran deal, is undermining Palestinian self-determination, and inviting figures actively involved in human rights violations to its stage," Iram Ali, campaign director at MoveOn Political Action, said in a statement.

PATRICK LAWRENCE: Why the Dust Won’t Settle After Mueller’s ReportMarch 19, 2019 • 90 Comments

Earlier this month the House Judiciary Committee announced that it has requested documents from 81—yes, 81—government agencies, entities such as Wikileaks, and (mostly) individuals. These last include the president’s two sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr.; Jared Kushner, his son-in-law; Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer; former AG Jeff Sessions, and former White House Counsel Douglas McGahn.

The committee purports to be looking for obstructions of justice, collusion with Russia, and other possible transgressions—this after Mueller spent two years investigating the same things. It is not hard to read this for what it is: the first indication that the Democrat-controlled House wants enough grist to keep the post–Mueller Russia-gate mill running for its political advantage.

“Russia-gate,” in short, is not about to pass into history. It looks now as if this political spectacle will be sustained as long as President Trump remains in office.

Why Joe May be Courting Stacey

What do these numbers tell us?

They reveal the racial composition of the cohort of scientists and technicians who will lead America in the 21st century. And they tell us which races will not be well represented in that vanguard.

They identify a fault line that runs through the Democratic Party, separating leftists who believe in equality of results for all races and ethnic groups, and those who believe in a meritocracy.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has expressed anger and frustration at the under-representation of blacks and Hispanics in the elite schools. But Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature have ignored his pleas to change the way students are admitted.

Currently, the same test, of English and math, is given to middle school applicants. And admission to the elite eight is offered to those who get the highest scores.

Moreover, Asians, not whites, are predominant.

Sources: Mueller Report Will Contain No More Indictments, Release Will Be Disappointing

Sources claim that the pending report by special counsel Robert Mueller will contain no new indictments, no condemnation of the President, and be a disappointment to the public.

The Associated Press notes that presentation of the Mueller report into alleged collusion between the Trump administration and Russia will occur “any day now.”

Analysis from ABC News Jonathan Karl, however, indicates associates of the President will face no new criminal charges, while Trump himself will not be rebuked.

“Sources familiar with the investigation believe there are no more indictments coming from the special counsel,” Karl reports, and as such, nobody will face public reprimand based on Justice Department policy.

Ex-FBI chief James Comey says he 'doesn't know or care' whether Mueller probe will show Trump knowingly conspired with the Russians

Former FBI director James Comey said in a New York Times op-ed published Thursday that he neither knows nor cares what the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation will be - so long as the probe was conducted properly.

US President Donald Trump abruptly fired Comey in 2017, triggering a series of events that led to Mueller being named to investigate allegations that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that the Trump campaign colluded in that effort.

Another indicator the Mueller report will be nothing but rumor and innuendo.

World countries blast US on Golan, Syria vows to liberate Israeli occupied territory

The Arab League, Russia, Iran and Turkey have strongly warned the US after President Donald Trump declared Thursday that he will recognize Syria's Golan Heights as Israeli territory.

The strategic highlands have been under the Israeli occupation since 1967, but Trump's abrupt declaration a day after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Israel brings the dispute to a boiling point.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday Trump's statement has brought the region to the edge of a new crisis.

In a speech at a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, Erdogan said: "We cannot allow the legitimization of the occupation of the Golan Heights."

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif expressed shock at Trump's plan.

‘HIGHLY PROFITABLE SCAM’: SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER ‘RIPPING OFF DONORS,’ FORMER STAFFER SAYS

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a “highly profitable scam” that “never lived up to the values it espoused,” according to former SPLC staffer Bob Moser.

The New Yorker on Thursday published a scathing essay from Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accusing the left-wing non-profit of “ripping off donors” while turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks.

Fox's Pete Hegseth: Democrats skipping AIPAC convention "are at some level anti-Israel or maybe anti-Semitic"

You describe MoveOn.org as a far-left group. MoveOn.org is now the Democrat Party. I mean, that's where they've become, now they're the soul of the Democrat Party. Just like the Justice Democrats, just like CAIR, just like all these radical groups that have captured the Democratic Party -- that's who they're kowtowing too. And maybe they think it works in a general, I think you're right, it doesn't ultimately work in a general election. AIPAC also is not an extreme right-wing, pro-Israel group. This is the group that plays it down the middle as best they can, trying to create a bipartisan consensus of Republicans and Democrats. If you won't go to AIPAC, you are at some level anti-Israel or maybe anti-Semitic. We have seen the comments. I'm not saying they are.

Bolton says Trump ‘very serious’ about ‘all options’ as Venezuela dismantles ‘terrorist cell’

“President Trump himself has been clear on this point on any number of occasions when he says all options are on the table. I think people need to understand and believe that; he’s very serious about it,” Bolton told Breitbart.

A Judge Left Robert Mueller Stunned Into Silence With This Head Turning Decision

Mueller’s team argued that since Manafort repeatedly lied to them, they were no longer bound by the plea agreement the two sides entered into that would result in sentencing leniency for Manafort.

The judge ruled in Mueller’s favor on a few of the issues he raised.

Judge Berman Jackson held that Manafort did lie about another ongoing investigation, a payment that was funneled through a pro-Trump political group to cover his legal bills, and his contacts with Kilimnik.

However, Mueller did not score an overwhelming victory.

The judge ruled against the Special Counsel’s office on the two most crucial points.

First, Mueller failed to prove that, “on October 16, 2018, the defendant intentionally made false statements concerning Kilimnik’s role in the obstruction of justice conspiracy.”

Democrat Insults Holocaust Survivors, Trump, and ALL His Supporters in One Fell Swoop!

In a recent interview with NBC News, Democratic congressman and House Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina compared America’s political climate under President Trump to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis treatment of Jews, and also the climate in the 1920s that would eventually lead to the Third Reich.

“Adolf Hitler was elected chancellor of Germany. And he went about the business of discrediting institutions to the point that people bought into it,” Clyburn told NBC. “Nobody would have believed it now. But swastikas hung in churches throughout Germany.”

“We had better be very careful,” Clyburn added.

REALLY?

Mind you, this is the same James Clyburn who earlier this month said that Muslim Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s experience in a Kenyan refugee camp was worse than what the children of Holocaust survivors have had to deal with.

Trump Tweet on British Opens Spring Offensive Against the Coup

March 20, 2019 - It has become entirely clear over the past 24 hours that the President and his defenders are on an all out offensive ahead of the release of the Mueller report, which many state is coming very soon. The President opened this campaign by attacking John McCain as part of the Russiagate fraud against him and went on to attack the British instigators and sustainers of the coup. On March 18, the President retweeted a tweet by William Craddick of Disobedient Media. Disobedient Media is one of the few outfits other than LaRouchePAC, and the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, with the guts to question the foundational premise of the coup, that the Russians hacked the DNC and Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta. Craddick had tweeted, "Russiagate was designed in part to help the UK counter Russian influence by baiting the United States into taking a hard line against them. Leaves us all with a more dangerous world as a consequence.

It hasn’t received much attention, what with Donald Trump suddenly declaring victory against isis, ordering U.S. troops out of Syria, and provoking James Mattis to resign in protest.

But the man who is now the president’s principal adviser on the nation’s defense, tasked with leading the largest employer in the world and managing the fallout from Trump’s military retrenchment, has less experience in government (a year and a half) or the military (none) than any defense secretary since an oil magnate served as the acting head of the Pentagon for several weeks during Watergate 45 years ago.

The Ex-Model Who Claimed Silvio Berlusconi Hosted Satanic Rituals in His House Died From “Apparent Poisoning”

Imane Fadil was a Moroccan ex-model who became a celebrity after becoming a key witness in the 2013 “Rubygate” trials which accused the media mogul and ex-Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi of “child prostitution”. Fadil was also looking to be a witness in a related investigation (dubbed “Ruby ter”) that is still ongoing.

In 2018, Fadil claimed in an interview that Berlusconi’s infamous “parties” lead to dark, satanic rituals. She was also in the process of writing a tell-all book about Rubygate and the dark secrets of Berlusconi. The name of the projected book was quite evocative: I Met the Devil.

Monsanto Asks Trump EPA to OK Drift-prone Pesticide on 90 Million Acres of Corn

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today it will consider allowing the highly drift-prone pesticide dicamba to be sprayed on up to 90 million acres of corn.

Dicamba is produced by Monsanto, which is now owned by Bayer. Drift from dicamba sprayed on cotton and soybean fields has damaged an estimated 5 million acres of crops, trees and backyard gardens over the past three years. That has prompted several states to restrict its use.

“Use of this dangerous, uncontrollable toxin should be banned, not expanded,” said Nathan Donley, a senior scientist with the Center for Biological Diversity. “With millions of acres of crops, orchards and natural areas already harmed by this volatile herbicide, Trump’s EPA should reject Monsanto’s self-serving request to dramatically escalate its use.”

US President Donald Trump has said that the time has come for the United States to "fully recognize" Israel's sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, seized from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967.
In a tweet on Thursday, Trump said the Golan Heights are "of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel" and to "regional security." His decision will be seen as a diplomatic coup for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

At the state level, Democratic politicians are taking actions, such as passing legislation supporting the National Popular Vote compact, that are designed to prevent Republicans from maintaining control of the White House.

The Washington state senate has passed a measure that could keep the president off the ballot if the house also passes the bill. Illinois is also considering similar legislation. But will it succeed?

The highly controversial figure, George Soros has become one of the richest men on the planet by creating a great many hedge funds including Soros Fund Managemen. If Forbes is to be believed, his personal fortune exceeds the mind-boggling sum of 25 billion dollars, however, the dubious strategies that Soros would use to accumulate such an excessive amount of wealth are largely the reason why his name evokes an emotional outcry whenever it is mentioned publicly. It seems that at this point there’s more countries where people are not willing to put up with a myriad of his NGOs than those where his reputation doesn’t precede him. In fact, those ultra-liberal values promoted by his minions are nothing more than a pretext for new color revolutions to be staged which are designed to provide this so-called philanthropist with ultra-profits.

Ten things to know about anti-boycott legislation

The Supreme Court has long held that political boycotts – like boycotts for Palestinian rights – are a form of expression protected by the First Amendment. The government may not condition the receipt of government benefits on the requirement that a person forgo core political speech activity. Nor can the government enact measures that chill our speech rights.

Several courts that have considered anti-boycott laws have agreed. In September 2018, a federal court blocked Arizona from enforcing its anti-boycott law, finding that the law likely violates the First Amendment. A federal court also issued a preliminary injunction against Kansas' enforcement of its anti-boycott law.

Guaido's Chief Of Staff Detained By Venezuelan Intelligence In Pre-Dawn Raid

Two days after Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido's "government-in-waiting" forcibly took possession of three diplomatic facilities in the United States with the blessing of Washington, and following what many observers speculate are a series of US aggressive maneuvers paving the way for military intervention, Maduro's security forces have begun arresting members of Guaido's staff.

According to Reuters Venezuelan intelligence agents have arrested and detained Guaido's own chief of staff, Roberto Marrero, as well as opposition legislator Sergio Vergara.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word of observation; when one hires the geopolitical and military equivalent of the Keystone cops, what one gets at the end of the day... is "Keystone Cop results"; that is everything you didn't want from such an intervention, and nothing you do.

It appears that everything that could have gone wrong with your point man in Venezuela has, and is about continue to go wrong henceforward.

Let me ask; is the US State Department still creating foreign policy by throwing darts at a dart board, in some dank basement no one in the bowels of DC wants to visit, ever?!?

Perhaps, sir, it just might be time to change that policy, to something which one could at least, on the outside, be characterized as "cohesive, moral, and prudent"?!?

Because, Mr. President, this is precisely the polar opposite of how these numb-brain actions of Guido and his goons, appear to both the Venezuelan officials, and the rest of the world.

IF any of this is getting livestreamed to Moscow, Putin is laughing his head off, amazed at the level of stupidity and arrogance these "Guidoistas" have demonstrated; and of course, these are the guys the White House is backing!!

Mr. President, it appears that US foreign policy in Venezuela has resulted, so far, in an abominable epic fail; time to cut your losses (which you used to know how to do, before you became the President), and leave.

Gillum’s ‘red flag’ plan to stop Trump: 1M more Florida voters

Andrew Gillum announced a plan Wednesday to register and turn-out 1 million new and low-propensity Florida voters in an effort to crush President Donald Trump’s reelection chances in the nation’s largest swing state.

“Voter registration is red flag No. 1,” the former Tallahassee mayor told POLITICO, calling increased voter registration crucial to the Democratic Party’s ability to survive and thrive in Florida.

“We’re looking at a target of 1 million,” he said. “We’ve got over 3 million people eligible to vote, and that’s to say nothing of the 1.4 million returning citizens” — former felons in line to have their voting rights restored under a constitutional amendment approved by voters last year.

Gillum’s staff wouldn’t give specifics about the targeted number of new voters he hoped to register or the number of voters they hope to reengage after they decided not to vote in the past two general elections.
