Milk-Bar Clausewitzes, Bean Curd Napoleons: In the Reign of Kaiser Don

Political Science from Fred On Everything!

Why do those inadequate little men in Washington and New York dream of new wars? Because the empire is near a tipping point.

Washington must either either start a war in Korea, or gets faced down by the North, its carriers ignored, its bombers “sending signals” and making “shows of force” without result. For the empire this is a loss of face and credibility, and an example to others that America can be challenged.

FOIA Dump Reveals Collusion Between Lynch, FBI And Media To Bury Bill Clinton Meeting

Back on June 29, 2016, Obama's Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, tried to convince us that the following 'impromptu' meeting between herself and Bill Clinton at the Phoenix airport, a private meeting which lasted 30 minutes on Lynch's private plane, was mostly a "social meeting" in which Bill talked about his grandchildren and golf game. It was not, under any circumstances, related to the statement that former FBI Director James Comey made just 6 days later clearing Hillary Clinton of any alleged crimes related to his agency's investigation.

But, according to a new DOJ FOIA dump just released by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), it looks increasingly as if nothing reported about this "social meeting" between Lynch and Clinton was grounded in fact...shocking, we know.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, yet perfectly predictable from these people!!

Hillary Clinton Hires Two Former Campaign Aides For "Resistance" PAC

Hillary Clinton has hired two political operatives from her 2016 presidential campaign to help manage Onward Together, the project she founded this spring with former governor Howard Dean to fund and support a coalition of Democratic groups led by activists and organizers.

The new additions, Emmy Ruiz and Adam Parkhomenko, held central roles on Clinton’s campaign: Ruiz delivered key victories as state director in Nevada during the primary and in Colorado during the general election; Parkhomenko worked in headquarters as her director of grassroots engagement before moving to the Democratic National Committee. Both served on Clinton’s first presidential bid in 2008.

Dean, the Onward Together co-founder, confirmed the recent hires on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: these two, Ruiz and Adam Parkhomenko, coupled with Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, are the original unholy trinity which cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic party nomination through massive voter fraud in the 2016 primaries!!

Maxine Waters Says Putin, Er, Pence Needs to Be Impeached After Trump

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that Democrats should try to impeach Vice President Mike Pence after they impeach President Trump on “The View” on Friday.

“Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?” host Joy Behar asked Waters.

“No, and when we finish with Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next,” Waters said.

“Putin or Pence?” Behar asked, confused.

“Pence,” Waters said, correcting herself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is both a complete embarrassment to the Democratic party, and the California district which she allegedly represents.

And BTW: Maxine Waters Under Siege: Congresswoman lives in $4.8M mansion, Paid daughter $750,000 to mail campaign flyers

And please, can someone explain to me how she is living in a $4.8 million dollar mansion, when she has a net worth of -15,000.00 Maxine Waters has a net worth of -15,000.00and earns a salary of $174,000.00 as a Congressional Representative?!?

I am no math whiz, but these numbers just do not compute.

Nikole Hannah-Jones On The DOJ's Attack On Affirmative Action And How School Segregation Never Ended

The New York Times is reporting the Justice Department is preparing to investigate universities’ affirmative action policies for anti-white bias, in what critics say is the latest assault against civil rights by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Times says the Justice Department sent out an internal announcement looking for lawyers to lead “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.” The Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of affirmative action policies, which take race and ethnicity into account in college admissions in efforts to address centuries of institutionalized discrimination against people of color and women. We speak with Nikole Hannah-Jones, an award-winning reporter covering racial injustice at The New York Times Magazine.

GOP Congress Discovers 1 Billion Payment To Law Firm Under Obama

The National Credit Union Administration is looking to renegotiate the terms of an agreement with two law firms that to date have received more than $1 billion as part of settlements with big banks and other firms related to the sale of securities to corporate credit unions in the run-up to the financial crisis.

The attempt to renegotiate terms—which to date have been unsuccessful—has also caught the eye of members of Congress, with one representative saying the payments raise “serious questions” about the terms of the contract negotiated by NCUA with the two law firms.

At issue are the $1.1-billion in contingency fees paid to St. Louis-based Korein Tillery and Washington-based Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel, which have represented NCUA in 26 lawsuits filed against various entities seeking damages for failed investments. To date, NCUA has recovered more than $5 billion after placing five corporates into conservatorship a decade ago.

The truth about Mueller’s investigation: no Grand Jury empanelled; Trump not being investigated

Early this morning the viscerally anti-Trump news media especially in Europe filled with headlines following the ‘revelation’ that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has used a Grand Jury to issue subpoenas in the Russiagate inquiry. No European state has anything similar to a Grand Jury – Britain did away with the device long ago – and Europeans in my experience have no understanding of it. That led to a rush of assumptions that Mueller was on the verge of bringing charges against someone. It should be said clearly that that is completely wrong, and that such a conclusion is unwarranted. Firstly, it seems that the report in the Wall Street Journal which triggered the story that Mueller had actually empanelled a Grand Jury are wrong. This has been confirmed by the New York Times...

Russia supports thorough development of UN Security Council sanctions — envoy

The UN Security Council’s meeting on sanctions issues was initiated by Egypt. Cairo also argued in favor of the resolution devoted to the effects of the restrictions applied on sates. Permanent Representative of France to the UN Francois Delattre told reporters on Wednesday that the Security Council members had not reconciled the resolution so far. At present, the UN Security Council is executing 13 sanctions regimes aimed, among other things, at prevention and settlement of conflicts, fight against terrorism and non-proliferation of mass destruction weapons. For the last year, the Security Council decided to lift restrictions on three countries - Iran, Cote d'Ivoire and Liberia. To date, the toughest sanctions regime exists for North Korea that continues developing nuclear weapons and means for their transportation despite the UN Security Council’s resolutions.

Russian lawyer says US Congress not interested in her testimony on meeting with Trump Jr

Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya believes that the US Congress is not interested in hearing her testimony regarding her meeting with Donald Trump Jr., the incumbent US president’s son, the lawyer said in an interview with the Rossiya 24 channel on Thursday. "They don’t need me there [in the Congress]," she said. "At this exact moment, right now, they don’t need the truth. What they need is an enemy." The lawyer explained the situation by attempts to damage the reputation of US President Donald Trump or to "continue further escalation of the conflict with Russia." Veselnitskaya said on July 19 that she was ready to testify before the US Senate if she gets security guarantees. Trump Jr. said admitted in early July he had held a meeting with Natalya Veselnitskaya in New York on June 9, 2016. He did not deny he had agreed to the meeting in a hope that he would get some damaging information on Hillary Clinton, the then Democratic nominee for presidency.

Trump wants to get us out of Syria - McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to deal with the China issue - McMaster doesn’t. Trump wants to deal with the Islam issue - McMaster doesn’t. You know, across the board, we want to get rid of the Iran deal - McMaster doesn’t," the official added. Another former NSC official said he knew that "the president isn’t a big fan of what McMaster’s doing." "I don’t understand why he’s allowing a guy who is subverting his foreign policy at every turn to remain in place," he noted.

Monsanto leaks suggest it tried to ‘kill’ cancer research about notorious weed killer

Controversial agricultural giant Monsanto attempted to ‘kill’ research on Roundup weed killer, which is suspected of causing cancer, leaked documents show. The company also reportedly influenced EPA officials to conceal information about the cancer risks.
A trove of documents was released by LA-based plaintiff firm Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman earlier in August. The company is representing people who claimed that they or their relatives got cancer due to Monsanto products.

In particular, the case concerns the notorious Roundup, a non-selective herbicide which kills weeds that compete with agricultural crops. Its active ingredient is called glyphosate.

The documents, mostly emails between Monsanto executives and researchers working for or connected with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), are dated between 1999 and 2016.

Levin: Grand jury leakers want to destroy Trump

From the beginning, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin has said that this investigation — which began as a counter-intelligence investigation and has yet to produce evidence of criminal activity — is being used by Democrats to politically damage President Trump and set him up for impeachment, should the DNC take Congress in 2018.

“It is a process that is un-American when it is abused the way this one has been abused,” Levin said.

How too much medicine can kill you

During a recent clinic consultation, I saw Mary, in her early 60s, with type 2 diabetes. She was concerned that the muscle pains in her legs may have been a result of the cholesterol-lowering statin drug she was taking. “But I’m scared of stopping it.” She explained how a specialist nurse had told her a clot could break off from her aorta, travel to her brain and cause a massive stroke.

I assured her that even in those with established heart disease, who stand to gain most from taking the drug, the risk of death from stopping the medication for two weeks to see if the side-effects would go was close to 1 in 10,000 .

Unfortunately, such misinformation and fear-mongering is common. One of the root causes is undoubtedly driven by the commercial interests of the pharmaceutical industry.

Report: Letter From McMaster Said Susan Rice Could Keep Her Top-Secret Security Clearance (Updated)

The man fires 3 Neocon Israeli Firsters and the so-called alternative media jumps in and attacks this guy for Israel.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster let one of his predecessors, Susan Rice, keep her top-secret security clearance nearly one month after reports surfaced about Rice's potential misuse of that clearance.

However, McMaster wrote similar letters to all the living national security advisers from both Democratic and Republican administrations "as a matter of longstanding practice," according to the Weekly Standard.

A White House official told the Standard that revoking Rice's clearance would have been unusual and that this practice applies to other high level government officials, such as the secretary of state. The reason is "for the purposes of continuity," because it would be illegal for government officials to discuss certain sensitive information with a former official unless that official had a continued clearance.

Rep. Franks: Special Counsel Mueller Must Resign, He's in 'Clear Violation of Federal Code'

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), and many news outlets, have reported on the donations made to Democrats by many of the lawyers now working for Mueller. In addition, from the law firm where Mueller worked before becoming Special Counsel, and from where he recruited several attorneys to work with him, the "employees of the firm gave an astounding $326,798 to the Clinton campaign in 2016, while giving a paltry $628 to the Trump campaign," said Gingrich.

"For every $1 this group gave to Trump, it gave $520.37 to Clinton," he said. Mueller has assembled "a political hit squad, plain and simple."

"They will stop at nothing to damage and oppose President Trump and his agenda," said Gingrich. "These people are not seeking truth in their investigations, they're attempting an establishment coup d'état to destroy members of the Trump administration."

The message made a pledge to be part of an effort to “fight terror content online.” But the move was rightly met with widespread skepticism among YouTuber’s as nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to censor conservative speech.

Trump Signs Russia Sanctions Bill, World At A Dangerous Point As Deep State Shows Their Teeth

By Brandon Turbeville

U.S. President Donald Trump has now signed into law what may be considered one of the most insane pieces of legislation ever to come out of the U.S. Congress. While the law itself will not result in major direct actions in terms of immediately attributable effect, it will have far reaching repercussions both at home and abroad. The law, passed almost unanimously in both the House and Senate had sat for days on Trump’s desk awaiting the President’s signature.

The bill is aimed at a number of Russian industries and also takes aim at foreign banks that do business with North Korea. The bill contains a number of provisions implementing sanctions against Iran as well. It also restricts the President’s ability to tamper with the sanctions regime once it is put in place...
