Unhinged NY Times Columnist Makes Trump Claim So Extreme MSNBC Host Reprimands Her – ‘I Don’t Think You Can Say That’

“(Trump) is not rounding people up and murdering them without any due process,” host Katy Tur said.

Personally, I applaud Tur. She was giving Goldberg a soft way out. To her credit(?) Goldberg wasn’t having any face-saving condescension.

“He would certainly like to,” Goldberg said.

“I don’t think you can say that definitively,” Tur responded.

Oh. Come. On.

Social Media Censorship—Here Are The Deep Basics

The obvious answer staring us in the face is: Google and Facebook and You Tube, for example, the largest social media corporations, are not “free companies.” -- They’ve been in bed with the intelligence community for a long time, and they favor wall to wall surveillance of the population. They favor the “liberal” version of a policed State, where correct opinions are let in the door and incorrect opinions are shut down.

NY TIMES EXPOSES ANOTHER PLANT – In Trump Administration

The White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, has cooperated extensively in the special counsel investigation, sharing detailed accounts about the episodes at the heart of the inquiry into whether President Trump obstructed justice, including some that investigators would not have learned of otherwise, according to a dozen current and former White House officials and others briefed on the matter.

In at least three voluntary interviews with investigators that totaled 30 hours over the past nine months, Mr. McGahn described the president’s furor toward the Russia investigation and the ways in which he urged Mr. McGahn to respond to it. He provided the investigators examining whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice a clear view of the president’s most intimate moments with his lawyer.

CNN and Other Leftist Outlets Accused of Planning to Smear Manafort Jury

“Publicly outing the names and home addresses of jurors is considered ethically questionable, as outlined in this guidance sheet on the topic from the Reporter’s Committee for Freedom of the Press,” Bre Payton noted at The Federalist.

This is doubly troubling when you take into account the fact that the judge in the case says he’s received threats due to his role in adjudicating the matter.

In rejecting the motion put forth by the news organizations, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III said that he’s currently being trailed by U.S. Marshals because of the threats made against him, according to Fox News.

“I can tell you there have been (threats), Ellis said, adding that “The Marshals go where I go.”

“I don’t feel right if I release (the jurors) names,” he concluded.

Judicial Watch Sues CIA for Documents on Dossier Leak to Senator Harry Reid

Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for records of communications with former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and his staff regarding the anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency (No. 1:18-cv-01502)).

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid reportedly believed then-Obama CIA Director Brennan was feeding him information about alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in order to make public accusations.

Omerosa Flip-Flops Again: "Not A Racist" Trump Is Now "Looking To Start A Race War"

During her time in Washington, Omerosa Manigault Newman (OMGMAN) appears to have mastered one of the most important attributes of being a politician: the ability to say something completely contradictory of something you have said before with utterly zero shame or cognition of ever having thought differently.

Having already been caught in a lie about whether she heard President Trump use the N-word - claiming in her new book that someone told her pollster Frank Luntz heard Trump say it, which Luntz denied, while later telling NPR that she personally heard Trump say it. Luntz has denied this, calling Omarosa's fact checking "Very shoddy work."

Brennan mulls legal action after security clearance revoked

Former CIA director John Brennan said Sunday that he is strongly considering legal action after his security clearance was revoked by President Donald Trump last week.

Appearing on "Meet the Press," Brennan blasted the move as an example of Trump's "egregious abuse of power and authority." And he said that he's considering legal options to possibly get an injunction to stop Trump from pulling clearances from critics in the future.

Monsanto caught colluding with EPA in Roundup cancer cover-up

Is the day we’ve all been waiting for finally on the horizon? Monsanto and the EPA have been caught red-handed in the midst of a legal controversy. Unsealed court documents have shown that not only is the EPA severely lacking in the standards department, but that the federal agency colluded with one of the nation’s most menacing companies, Monsanto. And in doing so, the EPA helped to keep Monsanto’s star product, Roundup, on store shelves and safe from being reviewed for its cancer-causing effects.

Court documents show that the EPA declared that Roundup was safe for use without ever testing the entire formulation’s effects, and instead relied on the industry testing done on just the key active ingredient, glyphosate.

New Evidence Provides Additional Support that the UK Interfered with the 2016 US Election More Than Russia!

After more than a year of the Mueller investigation, millions of dollars and the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) relentless attack on President Trump, what do we have? Nothing really.

President Trump tweeted in February that if the goal of Russia was to create discord in the US then they have succeeded. “They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!”

Since this tweet, the Russia fairy tale has fallen apart. Corrupt Mueller and his team of conflicted, biased and corrupt investigators and attorneys have found nothing related to their target, President Trump, and now their indictments are unraveling.

Russian Collusion: It Was Hillary Clinton All Along

It's beginning to look as if claims of monstrous collusion between Russian officials and U.S. political operatives were true. But it wasn't Donald Trump who was guilty of Russian collusion. It was Hillary Clinton and U.S. intelligence officials who worked with Russians and others to entrap Trump.

That's the stunning conclusion of a RealClear Investigations report by Lee Smith, who looked in-depth at the controversial June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between officials of then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign staff and a Russian lawyer known to have ties with high-level officials in Vladimir Putin's government.

The media have spun a tale of Trump selling his soul to the Russians for campaign dirt to use against Hillary, beginning with the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting.

Media Names Public Officials at Hospital the Morning of Seth Rich Shooting

America First Media has brought forth new findings in their investigation into the 2016 homicide of DNC employee Seth Rich. An inside source with knowledge of what occurred at the hospital on the early morning of July 10, 2016 has revealed former DNC Chairperson Donna Brazile and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser arrived shortly after EMTs had delivered the injured victim for emergency treatment of two gunshot wounds to the torso.

BREAKING: Chilling New Details Emerge In The Seth Rich Investigation

The investigation into the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich has gone totally untouched by the mainstream media. Coincidence after coincidence continues to permeate the airwaves within the Rich investigation, yet the media has tapped it as nothing more than a “ridiculous right-wing conspiracy theory.”

Tonight, a massive new allegation hit social media via a livestream.

On August 12th, Matt Couch released a tweet about the new bombshell information he obtained from a very credible source:

“BREAKING: Two High Profile Level Washington D.C. Elites were at the Hospital at almost the same time, or within minutes of Seth Rich’s arrival via ambulance. We’re giving these people one week to come forward, before we name them. We want to talk to you, you’re elected BTW :)”

What If Russiagate Is The New WMDs?

“The evidence against Trump and Russia is huge and mounting every day,” declared liberal celebrity activist Rosie O’Donnell at a protest in front of the White House last week.

“We see it, he can’t lie about it,” she added. “He is going down and so will all of his administration.”

“The charge is treason,” O’Donnell declared. Protesters held held large letters that spelled it out: “T-R-E-A-S-O-N.”

O’Donnell is by no means alone in her sentiments. Trump’s guilt in “Russiagate” is now assumed by much of the American left, and reaches greater levels of fervor with every passing day.

This kind of partisan religiosity is not new.

In the wake of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, conservative pundit Ann Coulter accused war opponents of “treason” and insisted of Saddam Hussein, “We know he had weapons of mass destruction.”

Media Misses Key Detail On Recent Trump GMO/Pesticide Ban ‘Lifting’, Here’s Why

In early August, Trump’s administration released a new memo from the Fish and Wildlife Service stating that the 2014 version of the memo, out of Obama’s administration would be cancelled and the terms of the new memo would now be in place.

The memo was in reference to a GMO and neonicotinoid bans that put in place to help protect the bee population and wildlife refuges. The 2014 memo was a positive step forward as it was publicly stating, even at higher governmental levels, that GMOs were harmful to agriculture and wildlife, as were neonics. This initial memo was coined a GMO and neonics ban, even though the language in the memo doesn’t actually say that.

Before we continue, we recognize and have painstakingly covered, the dangers of neonicotinoid pesticides and GMOs on our environment and wildlife. We have called for an all-out ban, based on our research, numerous times over the last 6 years and still hold completely strong to that truth.

WHAT IF THE WORLD STARTED USING US LOGIC IN RELATIONS WITH AMERICA ?

111
You’re sanctioned! You’re bombed! You’re invaded! The US has plenty of punishments lined up for states which it claims are doing things wrong. But what if the rest of the world held the US to the same standards?
Last Thursday was quite an unusual day. The US didn’t impose new sanctions on anyone. Not unless I missed it while I was lying on my sofa with tendonitis (cured after a day, I’m pleased to say, by my wife’s ‘Two-Pointing’).

At present the US operates active sanctions programs against almost 20 countries: from Belarus to Zimbabwe. And guess what? By and large the reasons the US gives for sanctioning these countries could just as equally be used to sanction the US.

FLASHBACK - Judge Rules Administrative Court System Illegal After 81 Years

Well it has been a long time coming, but all along there have been discussions behind closed doors (never in public) that the Administrative Law Courts established with the New Deal were totally unfounded and unconstitutional. With the anniversary of Magna Carta and the right to a jury trial coming up on June 15 after 800 years, the era of Roosevelt’s big government is quietly unraveling.

Hodge tries to gag BBC

Controversial Children's Minister Margaret Hodge today launched an extraordinary bid to stop the BBC reporting fresh allegations of abuse at an Islington children's home.

She labelled a former abuse victim, Demetrious Panton, an "extremely disturbed person" in an astonishing attack on his testimony. Mrs Hodge sent a letter to BBC chairman Gavyn Davies, copied to director-general Greg Dyke, accusing Radio 4's Today programme of "deplorable sensationalism" and "scant balance". The minister claimed Today reporter Angus Stickler was motivated by trying to connect her to the case in her role as leader of Islington council in the 1980s.

She called on Mr Davies to investigate personally and added: "If the position is that a news item is being developed with the intention of connecting a government minister to the story for the sake of sensationalism then I think it is deplorable."

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen reportedly investigated for bank fraud exceeding $20 million

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer, is under investigation for bank and tax fraud, and investigators are looking at more than $20 million in loans to a taxi company he owns with his family, The New York Times reported on Sunday.

The value of those scrutinized loans had not been previously reported.

The report, which cited multiple sources familiar with the matter, said authorities are additionally looking into whether the former fixer broke any laws by arranging financial deals with women claiming to have had affairs with Trump. The Times said two of its sources indicated that prosecutors could file charges by the end of August.

Lanny Davis, a lawyer for Cohen, did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment about the report from the Times. The newspaper said Cohen and his lawyers declined to comment for its article. A spokesperson for Davis told NBC News: "Lanny cannot comment on advice of counsel since there is an ongoing investigation."

Amazon Isn’t Paying Its Electric Bills. You Might Be

For a little while earlier this year, it seemed as though 87-year-old Rosie Thomas and her neighbors in the small town of Gainesville, Va., had beaten Amazon. Virginia’s largest utility, Dominion Energy Inc., had planned to run an aboveground power line straight through a Civil War battlefield—and Thomas’s property—to reach a nearby data center run by an Amazon.com Inc. subsidiary. After three years of petitions and protests in front of the gated data center, skirmishes punctuated by barking dogs and shooing police, Dominion agreed to bury that part of the line along a nearby highway, at an estimated cost of $172 million.

California moving to mandate abortion pills on campus

If California politicians have their way, soon all of the state’s public universities will be forced to dispense abortion pills to students.

The politicians and the abortion industry that backs their election campaigns insist that turning California’s university student health centers into abortion centers means “progress.” But what it really means is serious problems for both students and the universities, not to mention the destruction of more human lives.

There is almost a humor to it. Remember the time when even those who supported abortion could admit that it was such a grave option that it should be "rare?" Now they want to make it as available as Tylenol.

Declinism Rising: An Interview with Morris Berman  

Not every declinist has his day, but historian and social critic Morris Berman certainly seems to be having his. In 2000, Berman released The Twilight of American Culture, the first book in a trilogy (followed by Dark Ages America in 2006 and Why America Failed in 2011) on the decline of the American Empire. As the dot-com boom bubble inflated to the bursting point, Berman looked beyond just the economic scene to examine the many failings of American life. Predicting that America was inexorably headed for the rocks, Berman took a contrarian position, citing four factors that were leading to the decline of the country: growing social and economic inequality, declining returns on investment in societal structures, the erosion of intellectual standards and critical thinking, and what he called the “spiritual death” of the country.

John Brennan: From Useful Idiot For Stalinism and Sharia, To Anti-Trump Putschist

No one dominating our immediate attention deficit disordered news cycle better epitomizes this totalitarian ideological convergence of Communism and Islam than ex-CIA director, John Brennan.

John Brennan has admitted casting his 1976 POTUS vote for Communist Party (CP) of the USA leader Gus Hall. An ardent, unrepentant Stalin acolyte, who maintained the CPUSA as “a bastion of Stalinist orthodoxy for four decades,” Gus Hall, circa 1976, was virulently anti-American, and an overt champion of the “liberating” hegemonic Soviet Communist terror state under Communist dictator (and Hall’s “Comrade”) Brezhnev. Hall articulated these views in a 1975 “Report to the 21st Convention of the Communist Party”:

Chelsea Clinton Doesn’t Rule Out Having a Political Future

Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton was recently asked if she has any political ambitions, and was considering a possible political run in the future.

Before we get to her answer, let’s consider the following: her DNA makeup. Chelsea is a Clinton. Political ambition is grafted permanently to her chromosomes. It’s a part of the very fiber of her being. Therefore, any negative answer Clinton gives is instantly suspect. She’s the daughter of Bill and Hillary, two of America’s most shrewd political players in history.

So, let’s not deny the obvious.

Chelsea must know that she wouldn’t fool anyone by ruling out a future political career. Thus, she hedged in her answer, saying she has no immediate plans for a political run, but the future is full of possibility.

For Most U.S. Workers, Real Wages Have Barely Budged In Decades

Perhaps part of the problem in wages (beyond inflation) is the fact that most of the "new" jobs created in the US over the past decade have been low wage and part-time service sector jobs, while higher paying jobs have been slowly but surely eliminated. Also, the fact that around 96 MILLION working age people in America are no longer counted as unemployed because they have been out of work for so long they don't get welfare benefits anymore might play a part in the wage issue. Employers know there is actually a LARGE pool of people who might be willing to jump back into the workforce for low wages at anytime. The great lie in employment today is that "there are not enough people to fill existing positions". This is utterly wrong. There are almost 100 Million people ready to roll into what few garbage positions exist, hence, it is still an employer's market, not a workers market.

65 Years Ago Today, the CIA Conspired with the UK to Overthrow Iran on Behalf of Big Oil

What was once considered a conspiracy theory is now a fact as the government has since admitted to carrying out Operation Ajax that was planned by the CIA in conjunction with MI6 in the UK to exploit the Iranian people and steal their oil on behalf of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) – the British state-owned oil company established in 1908 with this objective in mind and the forerunner of today’s global oil conglomerate BP.

Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions – The Final Demise Of The Dollar Hegemony?

Sanctions left and sanctions right. Financial mostly, taxes, tariffs, visas, travel bans – confiscation of foreign assets, import and export prohibitions and limitations; and also punishing those who do not respect sanctions dished out by Trump, alias the US of A, against friends of their enemies. The absurdity seems endless and escalating – exponentially, as if there was a deadline to collapse the world. Looks like a last-ditch effort to bring down international trade in favor of — what? – Make America Great Again? – Prepare for US mid-term elections? – Rally the people behind an illusion? – Or what?

If You Want to Survive this Election with Your Mental Health Intact, Turn Off the “News” and Social Media Now

If you want to preserve your sanity and avoid unhappy derangement, turn off all corporate and social media from now to Thanksgiving. -- Since elections are extremely profitable for traditional media / social media corporations, your sanity will gleefully be sacrificed in the upcoming election–if you are gullible enough to watch the “news” and tune into social media. Elections are extremely profitable because candidates spend scads of cash on media adverts. -- The greater the discord and derangement, the higher the media profits. The more outraged you let yourself become, the more time you spend online, generating insane profits for the corporations that own whatever platforms you’re addicted to.

Giuliani Accuses CIA’s Brennan of Being the Mastermind Behind Trump Persecution

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Monday night, President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani pointed the finger squarely at former CIA Director John Brennan, accusing the outspoken intelligence chief of being the puppetmaster pulling the strings of the Trump investigation back in 2016.

“I’m going to tell you who was the quarterback for all of this,” Giuliani said. “Strzok, he’s a bit of a puppet. Then there’s Mueller, he’s a puppet. The guy running it is Brennan. And he should be in front of a grand jury.”

Giuliani accused the former CIA director of taking the phony dossier and putting it in front of then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat looking for any way possible to bring Trump’s campaign to a crashing halt.

“That led to the request for the investigation,” Giuliani recalled. “So he takes a false dossier, he gets the senators involved, and they demand an investigation. A totally phony investigation.”

Today’s Democrats: New York Gov. Cuomo Says America “Was Never That Great”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stepped in it so badly on Wednesday that he wound up attacked by not only conservatives but from his far-left primary opponent, former Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon. A good rule of thumb is that when you’re being attacked by the right and the far-left for the exact same thing, you’ve lost the plot and need to take a few days off. Because Cuomo is either demonstrating the advanced, terminal symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome or he is finally showing New Yorkers who he really is. Either way, this is a quote that’s going to haunt him for a long time to come.

Censorship Is What Happens When Powerful People Get Scared

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Israel lobby group J Street withdraws Rashida Tlaib endorsement

The Israel lobby group J Street has withdrawn its endorsement from Rashida Tlaib.

“After closely consulting with Rashida Tlaib’s campaign to clarify her most current views on various aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that a significant divergence in perspectives requires JStreetPAC to withdraw our endorsement of her candidacy,” J Street announced on Friday.

JStreetPAC is the political action committee of J Street. It endorses and channels contributions to political candidates.

“JStreetPAC was created to demonstrate the wellspring of political support that exists for candidates who take pro-Israel, pro-peace positions, including support for a two-state solution,” J Street said.
