Notes and quotes from Tom Fitton's Congressional testimony on Clinton Foundation 12-13-18

[Introduces Judicial Watch and their ongoing concerns about the Clinton Foundation.]

JD also had concerns about HRC becoming SOS.

She agreed not to participate in any matter in which CF were a party or represented a party. Also agreed that all matters that might involve such a conflict would undergo a State Dept ethics review, especially those concerning foreign governments.

JD had "zero confidence" that these promises would be kept and began monitoring the process. Filed a FOIA in 2011 to see how that process was being implemented; this was ignored, so they filed suit and found in 2013 that Bill Clinton gave 215 speeches earning $48mil during the time that HRC was SOS; none were deemed a conflict of interest. The State Dept approved speeches in many different countries, includes China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia. Egypt,UAE, Panama, Turkey, Taiwan, India, Cayman Islands and other countries. These approvals were routinely copied to Cheryl Mills, who had helped negotiate the ethics process; her involvement raised conflict-of-interest issues.

Documents showed that Bill Clinton recieved between $18mil-50mil just from Saudi companies. He also earned $600,000 for two speeches given in Saudi Arabia….so this ethics process was no more than a rubber stamp hat allowed him to receive money from foreign companies that were too often controlled by their governments. For example, Clinton was approved to give a speech for Renaissance Capital, which was linked to Russian government and Uranium One. "Approved without comment."

"And then, we found the Clinton e-mail server"

JD FOIAs & lawsuits forced State Dept to admit they have new emails they hadn't revealed. Human Abedin also used this server, who needed it to conduct the Clinton's personal and familiy business. Later, JD found out that CF was in contact with Abedin and others in the State Dept to get special favors and treatment for CF friends and allies….

"So you can see that the Clinton Foundation and Clinton State Dept almost immediately broke promises to the Obama and the Senate to maintain a wall of separation between the Foundation and the State. We have numerous instances of pay-to-play and favoritism for Clinton Foundation supporters with the Clinton State Dept…."

"Many have noted that it was hard to tell where the Clinton State Dept ended and where the Clinton State department began"….

And then there's the Uranium One controversy…There were monies funnelled into the Cinton Foundation in 2010…and these monies were hidden from the American people. The Foundation promised to disclose these monies: $31.3mil was given to the CF around the beginning of 2008….

Both the NYT has reported that Uranium One's chairman used his family's foundation to make four undisclosed donations totalling $2.35mil to the Clinton Foundation. None of this was disclosed. Shortly after the Russian's disclosed their intention to acquire a stake in Uranium One, Bill Clinton received $500,000 for the speech fee from Renaissance Capital he gave in Moscow.

JW is still trying to get docs from Uranium One. It has not yet been successful.

"But there's enough evidence to warrant serious investigations of the Clinton Foundation. And there is evidence that …the investigations that may have been taking place during the Obama administration were suppressed by the Justice Dept. So frankly it's not surprise that the Justice Dept. is not here today. I look forward to your questions today."

Here's what we know.
• There IS an open and ongoing investigation in Little Rock
• THIS is why Huber wasn’t there
• Plane loads of documents on a 757 in Little Rock came out of CF
• CF CFO Andrew Kessel “knows where the bodies are buried”
• 60% $ to administration (15% is the norm)
• $400M - $2.5B CF subject to taxation - improperly used
• CHAI $900M assets - Testimony reflects funds used as piggy bank
• Meadows really wants the documents (haha)
• They’ve shared their documents with several jurisdictions on both State & Federal level
• CF Acting as "Agent" or "Broker" with the funds: taking the funds in, passing it through to other countries, and taking their cut.

Basically it was a big money laundering and kickback scheme.

Financial Bounty Hunters Testify: Clinton Foundation Operated As Foreign Agent

he Clinton Foundation operated as a foreign agent ‘early in its life’ and ‘throughout it’s existence’ and did not operate as a 501c3 charitable foundation as required by its and is not entitled to its status as a nonprofit, stated two highly qualified forensic investigators, accompanied by three other investigators, said in explosive testimony Thursday to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

John Moynihan and Lawerence W. Doyle, both graduates of the Catholic Jesuit College of the Holy Cross and former expert forensic government investigators, gave their shocking testimony before congress based on a nearly two year investigation into the foundation’s work both nationally and internationally. They were assisted by three other highly trained experts in taxation law and financial forensic investigations. The forensic investigators stressed that they obtained all the documentation on the foundation legally and through Freedom of Information Request Acts from the IRS and other agencies.

Former Utah U.S. Attorney General John Huber, who resigned when he was appointed by former Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the Clinton Foundation and the issues surrounding the approval to sell 20 percent of U.S. Uranium assets to Russia, declined to attend the hearing. Chairman Mark Meadows, R-NC, who oversaw the hearing stated that it was disappointment that Huber declined, leaving Congress in the dark regarding the DOJ’s investigation.

Investigations into the Clinton Foundation have always been plagued by politics but Moynihan wanted to make clear in his opening statement that this investigation was one of many his firm has conducted on nonprofits and had nothing to do with politics.
Doyle and Moynihan have amassed 6,000 documents in their nearly two-year investigation through their private firm MDA Analytics LLC. The documents were turned over more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill.

“The investigation clearly demonstrates that the foundation was not a charitable organization per say, but in point of fact was a closely held family partnership,” said Doyle. “As such it was governed in a fashion in which it sought in large measure to advance the personal interests of its principles as detailed within the financial analysis of this submission and further confirmed within the supporting documentation and evidence section.”

At the onset of the hearing, Moynihan wanted to make perfectly clear that the intention to look into the Clinton Foundation was not political but based on their work with the firm.

“At this point I’d like to answer two questions, who are we? We are apolitical,” Moynihan told the committee. “We have no party affiliation to this whatsoever, No one has financed us… we are forensic investigators that approached this effort in a nonpartisan profession, objective, and independent way…we follow facts, that’s all.”

“We have never been partisan,” he added, speaking on behalf of all five members of his group testifying to Congress. “We come from law enforcement and wall street where each of us has dedicated our entire lives and praised the rule of law doing the right thing pursuing facts. we follow facts. that’s all.”

“None of this is our opinion,” he went on state. “I emphasize none of this is our opinion. These are not our facts. They are not your facts. They are the facts of the Clinton Foundation.”

He disclosed the reason his firm decided to take on the Clinton Foundation and the fact that they paid for the investigation out of their “own pockets.”

“Are you doing this for money,” said Moynihan to the committee. “Yes, this is how we make a living.”

Moynihan and Doyle swapped back and forth between there testimony and opening statement, making it clear they were working as a team. But the most shocking statements came from Moynihan’s statement as he read the laundry list of violations by the Clinton Foundation.

Moynihan stated “Foreign agent,” as he began to read from a long list of violations discovered during the course of their investigation.

The Clinton Foundation “began acting as an agent of foreign governments ‘early in its life’ and throughout its existence. As such, the foundation should’ve registered under FARA (Foreign Agents Registration Act),” he said. “Ultimately, the Foundation and its auditors conceded in formal submissions that it did operate as a (foreign) agent, therefore the foundation is not entitled to its 501c3 tax exempt privileges as outlined in IRS 170 (c)2.”

Accused Russian agent Maria Butina pleads guilty to attempting to sway US policy
by Rozina Sabur, Washington - 13 December 2018 - 9:18pm

A Russian woman has admitted to acting as an agent for the Kremlin to get close to the Republican party in an effort to influence US policies.

Maria Butina, 30, pleaded guilty to a single charge of conspiracy in a court in Washington on Thursday, admitting to working under the direction of a top Russian official to infiltrate the National Rifle Association (NRA), a powerful gun rights group closely aligned with senior Republican politicians.

She is the first Russian citizen to be convicted of working to shape US policy in the run up and through the 2016 election campaign, agreeing to co-operate with prosecutors for less prison time.

Appearing before Judge Tanya Chutkan, she admitted to conspiring to work with Alexander Torshin, a former deputy governor of Russia's central bank, and two US citizens as a Russian agent from 2015 until her 2018 arrest.

In a move that will likely shock pro-immigration activists, Mexico’s new president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, and his administration have agreed to close the border between Mexico and Guatemala, largely to prevent more migrant caravans from crossing into Mexico’s southern states.

According to The Washington Times, a Mexican Interior Minister told media that border security “is no longer an issue.”

“Do you know why it is no longer an issue? Because in five days this administration solved the issue, five days,” she continued. “The United States was impressed.”

In addition, the Mexican government is reportedly promoting a “Christmas at Home” campaign, The Washington Times reports, encouraging migrants already camping out at the U.S.-Mexico border to board free transportation back to their homelands so that they can spend the holidays with their families.

Liberals can’t rely on the racist excuse here. The Mexican president doesn’t hate brown people. Maybe he just understands all the negative ramifications of illegal immigration?

Props to Mexico. Maybe we could take a page out of their book someday.

Stanford Physicist with Ties to Huawei Committed Suicide on Day of CFO Arrest


The suicide of Chinese-American physics professor Shoucheng Zhang, who dabbled in technology investment outside of his position at Stanford, has raised concerns this week after an anti-Chinese regime publication revealed his ties to the Chinese tech giant Huawei.

Zhang, a naturalized American citizen from Shanghai, founded a venture capital firm tied to both the Chinese government and Huawei specifically, according to the Epoch Times, an anti-regime newspaper with ties to the persecuted Falun Gong community. The firm, Danhua Capital, is “a major financier of technology found in Huawei phones,” according to the newspaper.

Stanford University, where Zhang served as the J.G. Jackson and C.J. Wood Professor in Physics, confirmed his death last week, stating that he had died on December 1, the same day that Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada.

The statement called Zhang’s death “unexpected” but noted that relatives were witness to his ongoing battle with depression. In a statement on his passing, the family stated that Zhang was “motivated by his desire to witness the glory of God through scientific research.”

The American Physical Society also observed his passing this week with remarks from those in his field who knew him best.

“He was a spectacular person. One of the most catholic intellectuals I’ve known. He was interested in everything. We discussed Lucretius and we discussed the history of empires and he tried to explain to me what blockchain was, I’m afraid, unsuccessfully,” Steven Kivelson, a colleague at Stanford, told the APS.

The APS describes his work as far-reaching, identifying him as a “condensed matter theorist,” “a pioneer in topological insulators [who] also worked on high temperature superconductivity and predicted the quantum spin Hall effect.”

The Epoch Times, which noted that the Chinese government had rapidly begun deleting and censoring content questioning Zhang’s ties to Huawei or the Communist Party, reported that much of his work outside of Stanford appeared linked to the regime. The newspaper reported that it began its probe into the connection between the two after Chinese-language independent media began speculating that there was a correlation between Zhang’s reported suicide and Meng’s ongoing criminal woes, but ultimately found no evidence confirming a link. Instead, the Epoch Times presents evidence that much of Zhang’s work was in the service of Beijing and that some did overlap with Huawei.

Zhang was one of the first scientists that the government recruited for its “Thousand Talents” program, whose website states as its goal “to gather the global wisdom and create the China great exploit [sic].” Zhang worked temporarily in 2008 at Tsinghua University after years of study and research in the United States.

The Epoch Times identifies him generally as “as a state-sponsored academic, a funder of technology projects in the West meant to benefit Beijing, as a recipient of state-sponsored funding meant to propel his venture-capital projects, as likely having connections with one of the more powerful individuals in China, and as a researcher whose discoveries were key to the regime’s goals.”

His entrepreneurship through Danhua Capital, which subsequently became Digital Horizon Capital (DHVC), raised the most questions, however. DHVC reportedly participated in funding and cooperating with Huawei projects. DHVC “is a major financier of technology found in Huawei phones, and receives Chinese state funding,” the newspaper alleges.

In 2006, the Washington Post profiled Zhang as one of several “China whisperers,” businessmen who were successfully engaging with Beijing.


PART 1

“The bridge between China and the U.S. is one of the biggest challenges of globalization – it’s a critical moment of transition,” Zhang told the Post at the time. “If we don’t do it well, it will be a great lost opportunity.”

The Post reported that Danhua Capital was working to “raise a $350 million fund and invest in dozens of companies on behalf of newly wealthy employees of Chinese internet giants.”

Zhang largely avoided the public eye, though his remarks in media were not entirely favorable to the Chinese government. In an Asian Nikkei Review article on artificial intelligence, Zhang is cited as stating that, “in the past, research grants were awarded in China on the basis of party loyalty,” part of the reason he left the country.

Despite this, he appeared to be in the Chinese government’s good graces as recently as October, when the state-run Global Times newspaper quoted him as touting the potential that blockchain technology has to trigger “mass decentralization across industries.”

Meng Hongwei was arrested on December 1 in Canada at the behest of the American government, which seeks to prosecute her for creating an economic system to allow Huawei to override international sanctions on Iran. She was released on a $7.5 million bail this week and mandated to remain in her home in Vancouver and wear an ankle bracelet as the trial process commences.

Meng was cited on Thursday receiving flower-carrying guests and ordering Domino’s pizza for reporters stationed outside her home.

Malabu Scandal: Nigeria files fresh $1.1bn suit against Shell, Eni


December 14, 2018 Oladeinde Olawoyin

Details emerged Thursday that the Nigerian government has filed a $1.1 billion lawsuit against Royal Dutch Shell and Eni in a commercial court in London over the controversial Malabu oil deal.
Reuters reports Thursday that the new London case relates to payments made by the companies to get the OPL 245 oilfield licence in 2011. The deal is also subject of an ongoing corruption trial in Milan in which former and current Shell and Eni officials are on the bench.

The controversial Malabu deal involves Africa’s most promising oil block and was struck in 2011 under former President Goodluck Jonathan. The arrangement saw the Nigerian government stand as a negotiator in the controversial sale of the oil block in offshore Nigerian waters.

Two international oil and gas giants, Royal Dutch Shell and Italian Agip-Eni, paid out about $1.1 billion to Dan Etete, a former Nigerian petroleum minister who had previously been convicted of money laundering in France.

Islamification of Europe continues
European Court Of Human Rights Blasphemy Laws: Where A Word Out Of Place Can Cost Your Life



The European Court of Human Rights ruled that criticism of Muhammad constitutes incitement to hatred – meaning that in Europe, criticizing Muhammad is no longer protected free speech.

What the court has actually done, however, is rule out the possibility of any debate in which a range of various experts and members of the public could take part. Now, it seems, the only views that will be respected in the public forum are those of devout Muslims.

Underage marriages are considered by some countries child abuse or statutory rape, but are acceptable under shari'a law; they also take place in Muslim communities in Western countries such as the UK. This alone is a major reason why platforms must be found to debate the issue instead of sweeping it, as something offensive, under the carpet. Ignoring it is offensive.

Moreover, as some Muslims are often offended by even small matters regarding their faith, such as a toy teddy bear named Mohammad or a prisoner on death row declared innocent – so that mobs take to the streets to condemn, or even kill, those individuals – what now will not be censored in the West?
Under Islamic shari'a law, statements that even a few people may consider blasphemous – such as young schoolchildren naming a toy teddy bear Mohammad, a common enough name in the Sudan – might be treated as criminal offences. (Image source: Maxpixel)

There are, of course, social settings where it pays to watch your words. Saying you fancy the looks of a mafioso's new girlfriend could well prove fatal. Spending time with a bunch of Hamas terrorists while expressing your love for Israel might not lead to your premature demise. In London today, young men who make remarks or play music to other youths on the street can wind up stabbed to death. A recent comment on The Independent website claims, "In this country [the UK], some views, regardless of how valid and logical, can result in anything from public rebuke to loss of a job to violence."

For the most part, we learn how to avoid words or actions that may offend someone or some group, especially if it is known to be prone to violence. Yet these misfortunes are rare and we live our lives on the assumption that in democratic countries, we can speak freely within the norms of civil society. We recognize that in many countries, racist, homophobic, antisemitic, or "Islamophobic" hate speech can be reported to the police and lead to the arrest and eventual trial of the speaker. The United States' First Amendment to its Constitution protects its citizens from prosecution for free speech, except where there is a credible threat of "Imminent lawless action."

If angry exchanges take place, they are just a consequence of living in countries where free speech and unfettered opinion are cherished. We have seen what happens in countries where there is no free speech –as the Soviet Union or present day Pakistan (here, here and here); it often is not pretty and in much of the West is regarded as well worth the trade-off.

Particular sensitivities surround religious ideas, and histories. Nowhere is this more apparent today than in the instance of Islam, where anything untoward, especially statements that even a few people may consider blasphemous – such as young schoolchildren naming a toy teddy bear Mohammad, a common enough name in the Sudan – might be treated as criminal offences. In the West, within secular democratic states, most churches mercifully appear no longer interested in controlling matters such as blasphemy. When I lived in the Irish Republic in the 1960s and early 1970s, the Catholic Church held a tight grip on society. Books were banned, including by James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence and all of Sigmund Freud. Films and plays were also banned or censored. The intolerant ban on Catholicsstudying at Trinity College Dublin perpetuated injustice. Since the 1960s, however, we now have same-sex marriage, women's right to abortion, and an openly gay Taoiseach (Prime Minister). This year, on October 6, a majority of the Irish voted in a referendum to abolish the blasphemy law that had been in its constitution since 1937. The country has liberalized remarkably.

"Yes, Virginia, There Is A Deep State!"



In his efforts to uncover the Iran-Contra plot and the machinations surrounding Russia-gate, Bob Parry was in the forefront of journalists exposing the inner workings of the Deep State…A year ago yesterday, it became fully clear what was behind the feverish attempt by our intelligence agencies and their mainstream media accomplices to emasculate President Donald Trump with the Russia-gate trope.



It turned out that the objective was not only to delegitimize Trump and make it impossible for him to move toward a more decent relationship with Russia. On December 12, 2017, it became manifestly clear that it was not only the usual suspects — the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank Complex, namely, the Boeings, Lockheeds, and Raytheons profiteering on high tension with Russia; not only greedy members of Congress upon whom defense contractors lavish some of their profits; not only the TV corporations controlled by those same contractors; and not only the Democrats desperately searching for a way to explain how Hillary Clinton could have lost to the buffoon we now have in the White House.



No, it was deeper than that. It turns out a huge part of the motivation behind Russia-gate was to hide how the Department of Justice, FBI, and CIA (affectionately known as the Deep State) — with their co-opted “assets” in the media — interfered in the 2016 election in a gross attempt to make sure Trump did not win.



Russia-gate: Cui Bono? This would become crystal clear, even to cub reporters, when the text exchanges between senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and girlfriend Lisa Page were released exactly a year ago. Typically, readers of The New York Times the following day would altogether miss the importance of the text-exchanges. Readers of Robert Parry’s article on December 13, 2017, “The Foundering Russia-gate ‘Scandal,” would be gently led to understand the importance of this critical extra dimension explaining the the media-cum-anonymous-intelligence-sources frenzied effort to push the prevailing Russia-gate narrative, and — and how captivated and unprofessional the mainstream media had become. Bob Parry did not call me frequently to compare notes, but he did call on Dec. 12, 2017 for a sanity check on the release of the Strzok-Page texts. We agreed on their significance, and I was tempted to volunteer a draft to appear the next day. But it was clear that Bob wanted to take the lead, and it would turn out to be his last substantive piece. He had already laid the groundwork with three articles earlier that month. (All three are worth reading again. https://consortiumnews.com/2017/12/11/russia-gates-litany-of-corrections/



Parry’s Cri de Coeur Fast forwarding just two weeks, Bob had a stroke on Christmas Eve, which seriously affected his eyesight. By New Year’s Eve 2017, though, he was able to “apologize” (typical Bob) to Consortium News readers for not filing for two weeks. In January, he had additional strokes. When I visited him in the hospital, he was not himself. What is indelible in my memory, though, is the way he kept repeating from his hospital bed: “It’s too much; it’s just too much, too much.”



What was too much? Since Bob told me how hard he had to struggle, with impaired vision, to put together his Dec. 31 piece, and since what he wrote throws such light on Bob and the prostitution of the profession he loved so much, I include a few excerpts below. (Forgive me, but I cannot, for the life of me, pare them down further.) Robert Parry, who exposed Deep State skullduggery in the Iran-Contra affair, died on January 27, 2018. Our corrupt media, though, live on in infamy. Strokes and pancreatic cancer were named as the cause. But I think Bob was also a casualty of the Faustian media/Deep State bargain. It was just “too much.”

Hillary Clinton takes Huma as her date to week-long Indian wedding of billionaire Clinton Foundation mega-donor's daughter.


The Ambanis have close ties to The Clinton Foundation, having donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the non-profit

He also has close ties to The Clinton Foundation, having donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the non-profit and worked with the couple on developing clean energy initiatives in his country.

This is just the latest mega-donor wedding Clinton has attended, having stopped by a number of nuptial ceremonies over the summer.

Abedin meanwhile has emerged form hiding after not being seen with her boss for months.

The pair were both spotted last Thursday for the premiere of the Network, the adaptation of the Oscar-winning film starring Bryan Cranston.

Clinton and Abedin sat side-by-side in the theater but were careful not to be photographed together while entering or leaving the Belasco Theater.

Abedin, outfitted in a $2750 Michael Kors coat, was later seen posing with Tony Goldwyn and Josh Charles at the afterparty while Clinton greeted gospel singer Bebe Winnans with a big hug.

FBI Violated Policy in Flynn’s Case, Judge Demands All Exculpatory Evidence

A federal judge overseeing the case of Former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is demanding to see the FBI’s first interviews with the retired three-star general after explosive information contained in a sentencing memo released Tuesday night revealed that senior FBI leadership suggested he not have a lawyer present, nor warn him that his interview was subject to penalties if he failed to provide all the answers, according to the 178 page Defendants memorandum submitted to the court.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office Wednesday night to turn over all the government’s documents by mid-day Friday. The exculpatory documents requested by Sullivan include any memorandums regarding Flynn’s case because of the extraordinary circumstances of the information, according to Sullivan’s request. Further, Sullivan is also requesting any documentation regarding the first interviews conducted by former anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok and FBI Agent Joe Pientka -known by the FBI as 302s- which were found to be dated more than seven months after the interviews were conducted on Jan. 24, 2017, a violation of FBI policy, say current and former FBI officials familiar with the process. According to information contained in Flynn’s memorandum, the interviews were dated Aug. 22, 2017.

Anything beyond five business days is a problem, eight months is a disaster.

FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jeff Danik told SaraACarter.com Sullivan must also request all the communications between the two agents, as well as their supervisors around the August 2017 time-frame in order to get a complete and accurate picture of what transpired. Danik, who is an expert in FBI policy, says it is imperative that Sullivan also request “the workflow chart, which would show one-hundred percent, when the 302s were created when they were sent to a supervisor and who approved them.”

“The bureau policy – the absolute FBI policy – is that the notes must be placed in the system in a 1-A file within five days of the interview,” said Danik, who added that handwritten notes get placed into the FBI Sentinel System, which is the FBI’s main record keeping system. “Anything beyond five business days is a problem, eight months is a disaster.”

“In a case of this magnitude there is no question what is going on,” said Danik. “These agents went in the White House and had a case with a possible witness of his stature and didn’t write it up until almost eight months later? That is is unconscionable – it’s not fair to the defendant and absolutely goes against FBI policy.”

Problems and concerns regarding the 302 interview conducted with Flynn was first reported by this reporter in December, 2017, when a former U.S. intelligence official revealed that “the recent revelation that Strzok was removed from the Special Counsel investigation for making anti-Trump text messages it seems likely that the accuracy and veracity of the 302 of Flynn’s interview as a whole should be reviewed and called into question.”

For lack of a better place to stick this
Researchers confirm excessive screen time can irreversibly harm kids’ brains


Digital devices and other electronics are at the top of many kids’ wish lists this holiday season. If you’re considering upgrading your teenager’s cellphone or getting your preschooler their first tablet, you might want to keep in mind the early results of a groundbreaking study that confirms many parents’ fears about the effects of all that screen time.

The preliminary results are in on a huge study carried out by the National Institutes of Health. The $300 million project known as the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study enrolled 11,874 children aged 9 and 10, 2,100 of which are twins or triplets. The study will follow the children throughout young adulthood at 21 research sites in the U.S.

Although not all of the data are available yet, the early results are as insightful as they are alarming. Just as many experts and parents alike have long suspected, all that screen time is impacting not only children’s mental health and emotional development, but it’s changing the physical structure of their brains.

Not surprisingly, the researchers discovered that children who spend more than two hours per day in front of screens get lower scores on thinking and language tests. Teenagers, by the way, spend 4.5 hours, on average, with their mobile phones each day. That finding should be enough to give most parents pause, but the situation is even more serious for those who spend more than seven hours per day in front of a screen.

MRIs of these children showed a premature thinning of the outermost layer in the brain, the cortex, when compared to their peers who don’t use as much technology. The cortex is responsible for sensory input and the type of higher-order functions that make us humans.

LA college district abolishes free speech zones as part of lawsuit settlement

A Los Angeles college student who sued his school for allegedly curbing his right to free speech after it prevented him from passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution was vindicated in court this week.

The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), which represents nine schools, including Pierce College, agreed on Wednesday to settle a lawsuit filed against them last year by student Kevin Shaw after he was barred from passing out copies of the document because he wasn’t in the school’s designated “free speech zone,” which measured 616 square feet or about the size of three parking spaces.

As a part of the settlement, the tiny area marked for students to exercise their first amendment rights will be abandoned altogether, revoking a district-wide policy that declared all property on the district’s nine campuses to be “non-public forums” with speech restrictions. As part of the settlement, LACCD will pay Shaw’s $225,000 in attorney fees.

“Though it was not without its difficulties, this experience has left me optimistic about the guiding principles of my country,” said Shaw in a statement provided to Fox News. “Folks of all political dispositions rallied behind this case to declare in no uncertain terms: freedom of speech is essential to the educational process.”

Egyptian President: Migration is NOT a human right


Egypt’s President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi recently spoke at a forum, where he in plain language told those who have moved or want to move to Europe.

“If you go to another country, you must follow their laws and culture, if not, don’t go there”, he said.

In November, al-Sisi attended the World Youth Forum in Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt. He was asked how he sees the fact that several European countries are now closing the door to those who want to migrate to Europe.

His answer was clear:

“Instead of asking me why Europe closes the door to us, you should ask why people in Afghanistan don’t take better care of their country. The same applies to Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen and Somalia.

“You demand to migrate with your culture which, from your side, is not the least negotiable to change. You say this is who we are and you must accept us on the basis of human rights.”

“If you migrate to another country as a guest, then you should completely follow their laws, ways, traditions and culture.

“If you are not willing to do that, you should not migrate. You cannot expect the countries to open their doors and allow you to come in and change and create problems”, he concluded.

Number of prisoners in Russia hits record low

Russia enjoys a record-low number of inmates, thanks to “humanization” of the penal code, deputy chief of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) has said, adding that the number of jailed people is expected to shrink further.

Over the past few years, the number of inmates in Russia has dropped by nearly 250,000, the FSIN deputy head, Valeriy Maksimenko, toldjournalists on Friday.

Currently, 467,000 people are serving jail terms, which is the lowest number in modern Russian history.

Apart from that, some 100,000 are in pre-trial and police custody, Maksimenko added. While the figure appears to be quite big, the number of such people actually shrank two-fold, compared to six years ago.

The decline in the number of the prisoners is the tangible result of “humanization” of Russian legislation, the official said. The number of inmates is expected to shrink further, as the authorities seek to put people behind bars only for capital offences, committed “against individual or state.”

A new law, signed by Vladimir Putin this summer, has also contributed to the reduction of inmate numbers, according to Maksimenko.

The legislation has set new rules for re-calculating time spent in pre-trial detention into jail days after sentencing. A day spent in pre-trial custody now counts as 1.5 days in jail for general security prisoners and as two days for low-security ones. For maximum and special-security prisoners, sentenced for serious and violent crimes, however, it goes day-for-day only. The new legislation has had a retroactive effect, and convicts had their jail time re-calculated according to the new rules.

That's what we're told when going to other countries. That we have to obey their laws and culture. It's only right that they do the same in return.
....but a lot of 'em think they're better than everyone else and shouldn't have to conform to the standards of nations they've emigrated to.

POLICE SEIZE VATICAN LAPTOPS IN MASSIVE PEDOPHILE RING BUST
Police have been raiding the offices of the Catholic Church since June 2018 , seizing laptops and files belonging to Church officials and the Vatican, after prosecutors became frustrated with the Catholic Church’s ongoing protection of pedophile priests.'

According to Pope Francis and the Vatican, the Catholic Church is under no obligation to divulge information about pedophile priests, claiming that details of sexual crimes committed by Catholic officials are protected under canon law as ‘Pontifical secrets‘

However, according to a report by Reuters, beginning since mid-June, there have been six raids on the offices belonging to the Catholic Church. Authorities have reportedly seized documents, files, computers, laptops and tablets belonging to Church officials and the Vatican.

The raids are a part of ongoing investigations into allegations of rampant child sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests all over the world. The raids have been staged as surprise sweeps, and are being regarded as the most aggressive ever undertaken by a judicial authority against the Roman Catholic Church.

Reuters reports: Two special envoys sent by Pope Francis to investigate a child sex abuse scandal in Chile were meeting priests and Church workers at a university in the Chilean capital last month when aides rushed into the room with an alarming development: police and prosecutors were about to start raiding Church offices.

The envoys were 90 minutes into a seminar on how to investigate allegations of sex abuse committed by fellow clergy following revelations that hundreds of children might have been molested. For decades, the Roman Catholic Church in Chile quietly investigated such allegations without alerting police, but it now stands accused, even by Pope Francis himself, of a cover-up that allowed abusers to operate with impunity.

One of the clergymen listening to the envoys was Jaime Ortiz de Lazcano, the legal adviser to Santiago’s archbishop. The aides rushed to his side and told him, “‘Father, go to the (Church offices) because there’s going to be a raid’,” Ortiz later recounted.
Police and prosecutors were staging simultaneous raids on Church offices less than a mile away from the university and outside the capital, looking for evidence of sex crimes the Church had not reported to police.

The surprise sweeps, ordered by Emiliano Arias, a provincial prosecutor, marked the start of what experts who track sex crimes in the Roman Catholic Church say is one of the most aggressive investigations ever undertaken by a judicial authority anywhere in the world.

The highest ranking Catholic official ever convicted of crimes against children has been sentenced to 12 months in prison for covering up "decades" of sexual abuse of young altar boys by a pedophile ring of priests.
Cardinal George Pell, the third most powerful man in the Vatican, is currently facing trial on child sex offenses.
Since that cold June afternoon there have been five more raids on Church offices to seize documents, phones, tablets and computers, leaving the Vatican scrambling to respond to a rapidly unfolding scandal that is the worst image crisis of Francis’ papacy, now in its sixth year.

Leading the charge against the Church is Arias, 45, who is experienced in fighting organized crime and has a showman’s fondness for taking television news crews on the raids.

Arias told Reuters in an exclusive interview that documents seized by his team contained 30 cases of alleged abuse dating back to 2007 that the Church had not reported to the police. While Reuters was allowed to film his investigators poring through seized documents, he declined to give details from the files because he said they named victims of abuse.

He also alleged that some local Church officials had tried to destroy documents but that his team – made up of two prosecutors, three lawyers and a unit of specialist sex crime police – had salvaged them. He declined to say who had tried to destroy them or how they had tried to get rid of them.

Holder, Dems Lash Out at Texas Judge For Ruling Obamacare Unconstitutional – Demand “Medicare For All”

Obama’s corrupt Attorney General and other Dems lashed out at the Texas federal judge for ruling Obamacare unconstitutional and demanded “Medicare for all.”

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth, Texas declared that Obamacare is unconstitutional in a Friday ruling.

The ruling is expected to be appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court.

Last year, Congress invalidated the tax penalty for not purchasing insurance which opened up doors for the constitutionality of Obamacare to be challenged.

The repeal of the tax penalty is precisely what the Republicans needed to kill Obamacare, one of the biggest scams of redistribution of wealth this country has ever seen.

Now the Dems are pushing for universal healthcare — this was their plan all along. Obamacare was merely the vehicle to usher in universal healthcare.

Holder complained about a “hard right judge” destroying the system, adding, “it is time to move to some version of Medicare for all and end this nonsense.”

Faith Healer Promoted By Oprah Faces Arrest Amid Hundreds Of Sex Abuse Allegations

A Brazilian faith healer who rose to international fame after being promoted by Oprah Winfrey is now wanted by authorities for sex abuse allegations by hundreds of women.

Spiritual healer João Teixeira de Faria, known as “John of God,” first came under fire on Friday when a woman accused him on Brazilian television of sexually abusing her. Since that first public accusation, over 250 women have come forward to accuse him of similar abuses and prosecutors in the Brazilian state of Goias have requested his arrest.

Reuters reports that state prosecutors say Faria has been accused by at least 258 women, including some foreigners, like his first public accuser, Dutch choreographer Zahira Maus. (The South China Morning Post says the number of accusers is now over 450.) Maus first made her accusation Friday on Rede Globo (TV Globo), which reported spending three months investigating the story and conducting interviews with a dozen other alleged victims.

BOOM! 24 page document–begin with Page 10.

HV1-Indictment-George-Herbert-Walker-Bush

IN THE ARKANSAS SUPREME COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS Robert Blair, Thomas Deegan, Peter Ostrowski, Jeremy Lowe, Don Bailey, Stephen D. Curry (in private capacity by special appearance only)

___ | {Plaintiff | v. : CRIMINAL ACTION FOR FULL PUNITIVE DAMAGES: COMMON GRAND JURY DEMANDED: | CONCERNING MONEY LAUNDERING, | CONSPIRACY TO VIOLATE LOGAN ACT | AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING UNDER R.I.C.O | {18 U.S.C. C-96 §1961} |___

: C – 186-RV3-524 {Defendant GEORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH of CARLYLE GROUP;{George Herbert Walker Bush—private} (George Herbert Walker Bush et. all with prejudice) MEMORANDUM FOR ORDER ON THE FORMAL PROSECUTION OF MONEY LAUNDERING, RACKETEERING TO VIOLATE FCPA AND CHANGE MINING LAW

Hon. John Dan Kemp, September 10, 2018 The allegations concerning breaking a form of the Logan act through use of a conspiracy to undermine national mining laws, are serious enough as to warrant another superseding indictment against defendant GEORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH{George Herbert Walker Bush in private}. Due to this fact your honors we will order defendant to be read the RIOT act. These acts were committed beside the seditions involved in Uranium 1. They concern human trafficking and conspiring to defraud United States.(betray united states.) The accused defendant George Herbert Walker Bush has broken national racketeering laws that fall under 18 U.S.C. §1961 and 18 U.S.C. §371, in order to enrich himself and the CARLYLE GROUP. This has been done in a coordinated attack pattern that begins in a mining contract that is illegally signed in South Africa and ends with the operation Eagle II over a period of forty years. As a result of these indiscretions, several states and their institutions including Nevada end up losing their land rights. The plan we have hard evidence for involves moving the settlers out, defrauding the government and moving the operators tied to Barrick Gold Nevada and BHP Billiton in house to strip all residents of their land patent deeds. Since this is in fact the case we are enforcing the RIOT Act to be read to the accused defendant given his past in child trafficking. The accused George Herbert Walker Bush is already hospice ridden as his wife has passed on, yet that will not alter submission guidelines. He will be made to answer every charge on record with detailed responses, and will provide complete sentences to the sergeant on hand as summoned before the formal tribunal Grand Jury. - 1 - The defendant George Herbert Walker Bush changed several national mining laws including laws in South Africa in full violation of FCPA. This exact area is a well known hot spot for the CLINTON FOUNDATION and BARRICK GOLD Incorporated. As your honors may or may not be aware, this occurred during a specific incident dealing with the country of the CONGO. It continued on from there where serious activities of money laundering, racketeering and extortion were uncovered which will be aired. We note to your honors that the accused may not use the “bad memory” syndrome for his defense again as such notions will do nothing to avail those required responsibilities. As such, we again direct your honors to the problems that transpired in this area and why each of those events amount to no coincidence. During 1993-97, George Herbert Walker Bush aka George Bush Senior attempted to change the official mining act and in the process ran afoul of several severe national laws. The severity of the damage can by no means be understated your honors, as it affected residents across all of Tanzania and other neighboring countries. As a result of all these infractions, it is alleged now that more than a hundred miners were killed in sudden “accidents.” This was done with the willing concert of the Black Eagle Trust which we will prove on record. In the course of these events, massive child trafficking was conducted.
