Senior DOD Official: Three Migrant Caravans Headed to U.S., One with 12,000

There are three migrant caravans headed to the United States’ southern border with Mexico, according to top Pentagon official John Rood.

Rood testified to the House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that one of the caravans contains over 12,000 migrants.

“Current information shows that a caravan of over 12,000 people — there’s three that we are tracking, that the DHS is tracking en route, one that is over 12,000 by the latest estimate,” said Rood, who is the under secretary of Defense for policy.

Rood said there are currently more than 2,300 active duty troops at the southern border, down from a high of 5,900 in November.

But he says several thousands more active duty troops are expected to head to the border in the coming weeks, to assist the Department of Homeland Security with laying down more concertina wire, and helping to monitor the border between points of entry.

Democrats, who now control the House, called Pentagon officials in to testify on President Trump’s order of active duty troops to the border in October, which they have called a political stunt by the White House before midterm election.

But defense officials testified that it was the Pentagon — not the White House — decided that active duty troops were able to deploy faster and were better resourced to deal with the caravans headed to the border than National Guard and reserve forces.

“That was a decision made inside the Department,” said Navy Adm. Michael Gilday, the director for operations of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Democrat lawmakers also questioned whether there was a crisis that necessitated the deployment of troops, when the number of illegal immigrants coming across the border have been higher in previous years.

“The difference is really the caravans and really the nature of the asylum seekers,” Rood said.

Lest We Forget Chinagate, The Most Serious Scandal in US History

The “Chinagate” fundraising scandal plagued the 1996 Bill Clinton-Al Gore campaign and Hillary was very much involved. Chinagate aka Commercegate is the most serious scandal in U.S. history. It involves the transfer of America’s most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, possibly in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee.
I never heard about this till now.

The Chinagate scandal of 1996 ended up in an award of 900,000 in attorney’s fees and costs to Judicial Watch ten years later.

The scandal was an apparent scheme by the Clinton administration to sell seats on taxpayer-funded trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign.

Judicial Watch began an investigation and Clinton administration officials deliberately concealed and destroyed records regarding the trade mission and testimony was falsified.

Nolanda Hill, a business partner and confidante of the Clinton then-Commerce Secretary Ron Brown testified in a court hearing during the litigation that the Clinton White House told Brown to “delay the [Judicial Watch] case by withholding the production of documents prior to the 1996 elections and to devise a way not to comply with the court’s orders.”

She also testified that Brown, who died in a plane crash during a trade mission to Bosnia, told her that Hillary conceived of the scheme to sell trade mission seats. Brown complained of being “Hillary’s blankety-blank tour guide.”

The case was so serious and so damaging that the Commerce Department asked for a judgment against itself to avoid any further revelations. The court refused and insisted the Commerce Department conduct a new search for trade mission records and authorized discovery into the illegal concealment and destruction of government records.

Twitter Suspends Jared Beck, Attorney For Plaintiffs In DNC Fraud Lawsuit

https://disobedientmedia.com/2019/01/twitter-suspends-jared-beck-attorney-for-plaintiffs-in-dnc-fraud-lawsuit/

"Earlier today, Twitter suspended the account of Jared Beck, an attorney representing the plaintiffs in the DNC Fraud Lawsuit. Disobedient Media has consistently covered the ongoing litigation of the suit, which has resulted in questions regarding a number of deaths, bizarre phone calls, and other unusual occurrences.

The historical significance of the Beck’s suit against the DNC and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz cannot be overstated, as it confronts the heart of the actual election-rigging from which the entire Russiagate scandal was constructed to deflect. Despite this – or because of it – the lawsuit has gained remarkably sparse corporate media coverage."

James Comey EXIT FORMS: Incriminating Leaks, Hiding Foreign Assets?, And A ‘CLINTON EMAILS’ Binder

James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.

Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release). (READ: Comey Refuses To Deny He Leaked Classified Info)

Comey refused to check either a Yes or No box on question 7:“Do you have any financial interests/obligations, personal assets or property in a foreign country, or have you ever provided any service, compensated or voluntary, or been employed by 1) a foreign country 2) any foreign nationals 3) a representative of any foreign nationals 4) any foreign, domestic or international organization or person engaged in analysis, discussion, or publication of material on intelligence, defense, foreign affairs, or protected technology 5) or registered as an agent of a foreign government.”

Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Withhold Pay From Congress, President During Shutdowns

A group of House lawmakers has introduced a bill that would withhold pay from members of Congress, the president, and vice president during a government shutdown. Congressman Jared Golden (D-Maine) was joined by Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) and Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.) in introducing the Solidarity in Salary Act of 2019 (pdf) on Jan. 29. The intention of the bill is to prevent and limit the duration of future shutdowns and ensure that lawmakers feel the harm they cause federal employees when they fail to fund the government, according to a statement.


About 800,000 federal employees did not receive their pay during the most recent partial government shutdown—nearly 380,000 federal employees were furloughed and 420,000 worked without pay during the shutdown. Many federal government agencies halted some of their activities or faced a jump in employees calling in sick, which prompted concerns in several areas like travel and food safety.


The partial government shutdown ended after President Donald Trump signed a short-term spending bill on Jan. 25, to temporarily reopen the government. This ended the longest furlough in history that began Dec. 22, as a result of a standoff between the White House and Democratic leaders over funding for a border wall. Trump praised the federal employees and their families as “incredible patriots” and “amazing.” The White House promised federal workers that they would be paid as soon as possible. “Federal workers don’t get paid during a government shutdown. Neither should politicians. That’s just common sense,” Golden said in a statement. Under the bill, the daily pay of members of Congress, the president, and vice president would be placed in escrow for each day the government is closed and will only be released after the government is reopened. “Federal employees should never have to carry the burden caused by a dysfunctional government; that’s why I’m proud to cosponsor this legislation,” Crenshaw said. During the partial government shutdown, Crenshaw asked the Chief Administrative Officer to withhold his pay until the government reopened. Many social media users praised him for this move. “I cannot in good conscience get paid while federal employees’ financial futures hang in the balance because of this partial government shutdown,” the former Navy SEAL wrote in a tweet on Jan. 10.


The federal government partially shut down on Dec. 22, after Congress failed to come to an agreement about funding. The president is asking for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall—a promise he made during his election campaign—to be included in a comprehensive border security package requested by experts from the Department of Homeland Security. The package will fund more border patrol agents, immigration judges, and scanning equipment at ports of entry. Democratic leaders in Congress refused to negotiate to fund for a border wall while the government was closed, calling it expensive and ineffective. Trump’s move to reopen the government is a temporary concession that returns the spotlight to House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). The federal government has three weeks until Feb. 15, for them to negotiate long-term funding for border security.

Schumer Urges Intelligence Community Leaders to ‘Stage an Intervention’ With President Trump

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sent a letter Wednesday to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats urging that he, CIA Director Gina Haspel and FBI Director Christopher Wray “stage an intervention” with President Donald Trump following Trump’s suggesting earlier in the day that his intel advisers “go back to school”.

Two years ago, Schumer warned then President-Elect Trump against standing up to the intel community, saying, “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

Schumer posted his letter to Twitter, saying, “It’s past time for U.S. Intelligence Community leaders to stage an intervention with @realDonaldTrump.”

California Parents Sue to Block ‘Inclusivity’ Instruction in Schools

Concerned parents in Santa Barbara, California, have filed a federal lawsuit against a radical activist group and their local school board over taxpayer-funded “inclusivity” instruction. They characterize these sessions as public-school indoctrination that falsely portrays America, depicting the nation as a cruel, oppressive, and racist country.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump Rips Virginia Democrats’ Abortion Comments


President Donald Trump harshly criticized Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and Democratic Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran’s advocacy of late-term abortion, in an exclusive Oval Office interview with The Daily Caller.

“I’m surprised that he did that, I’ve met him a number of times,” Trump said, noting that he saw a video of Tran discussing the bill earlier that morning, but hadn’t yet heard Northam’s remarks.

“I thought it was terrible,” Trump said of Tran’s statements, adding, “Do you remember when I said Hillary Clinton was willing to rip the baby out of the womb? That’s what it is, that’s what they’re doing, it’s terrible.”

Trump’s comments come after a bill was introduced in Virginia that would effectively allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment of birth.

Northam described the new late-term abortion legislation in a Wednesday interview, saying, “If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated, if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians & mother.”

Trump continued, reflecting on both Northam and Tran’s comments. “This is going to lift up the whole pro-life movement like maybe it’s never been lifted up before. The pro-life movement is very much a 50-50, it’s a very 50-50 issue, actually it’s gained a point or two over the years.”

Trump seemed optimistic about the remarks, saying, “I think this will very much lift up the issue because people have never thought of it in those terms.”

NewsGuard and Microsoft Team Up To Destroy Independent Media Ahead Of 2020 Elections; Linked To Several Think Tanks, Government Officials

The service NewsGuard, an establishment attempt to silence alternative media and independent media sites, has teamed up with Microsoft to help its effort to destroy free press. Meanwhile, the mysterious firm connected to intelligence agencies and former government officials on their advisory board has also just been linked to Saudi Arabia through Publicis Groupe, an investor in NewsGuard.

NewsGuard is now automatically included in Microsoft’s Edge browser on iOS, Android and Microsoft phones. Microsoft’s press release regarding the partnership states that NewsGuard “will empower voters by providing them with high-quality information about the integrity and transparency of online news sites.” Just one problem, who is providing transparency about the news rating agency?

When a user decides to search the Web, the extension tells the user whether or not a story is credible or not credible with 5 indicators and an information box judging the website.

Green icon — Sites that follow “basic standards of accuracy and accountability” based on nine criteria,which include full disclosure of possible conflicts of interest, financing, and “notable ideological or political positions held by those with significant financial interests in the site.”

Red icon — Sites that do not fulfill NewsGuard’s criteria for credibility and transparency.

Orange icon — Satire and humor sites that mimic real news.

Blue icon — Sites that primarily host user-generated content.

Gray icon —Unrated sites.

There is just one problem: the plugin is only blacklisting certain sites and does not actually have fact checkers looking into the story in question. So, in fact, the service is censoring alternative and independent media. But, let’s be honest, that’s exactly what its founders, creators, funders, and advisors want.

About that transparency … the list of advisors for NewsGuard includes Tom Ridge, the former secretary of Homeland Security, Richard Stengel, former editor of Time magazine and Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy (Obama administration), (Ret.) General Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA, former Director of the National Security Agency and former Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence (George W. Bush administration), Don Baer, chairman of Burson, Cohn & Wolfe and former White House Communications Director (Clinton administration), Elise Jordan, political analyst, NBC, and former speechwriter for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Oh and then there are the journalists (traitors of free speech) like John Battelle, co-founding editor of Wired and founding chief executive of Industry Standard and Jessica Lessin, founder, and editor-in-chief of The Information.

If you aren’t worried about a company with a former CIA director (who lied under oath to Congress misleading officials, according to the Senate report on the CIA’s interrogation program) and a former secretary of Homeland Security official as its advisors, you may need a reality check. Please go see Dr. Benn Swann for a checkup stat!

Then there is Richard Stengel, a member of the Atlantic Council (neo-liberal think tank) and former Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy under President Barack Obama who deserves a short blurb for his own involvement. Why? Because Stengel admitted his role in life at a previous discussion hosted last May by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). At the event Stengel described his past position at the State Department as a “chief propagandist” and further stated that he is “not against propaganda” and it was needed. H/T Disobedient Media.

“Every country does it and they have to do it to their own population and I don’t necessarily think it’s that awful,” Stengel said.

Judge Orders Release Of Sealed Records From BuzzFeed’s Dossier Lawsuit


A federal judge in Florida on Wednesday ordered the public release of dozens of documents kept under seal during BuzzFeed’s lawsuit over the Steele dossier.

District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro ordered the documents be made public by Feb. 8. More than 40 records used in the case are listed in the order.

Ungaro’s decision will shed light into the discovery process during the defamation case, which included depositions with dossier author Christopher Steele and the founders of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired Steele.

Ungaro ruled in BuzzFeed’s favor Dec. 19, 2018. The website was sued in February 2017 by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive accused in the dossier of using his web hosting companies to hack into the Democratic National Committee’s computer systems.


Gubarev vehemently denied the allegation, which Steele made in a memo dated Dec. 13, 2016. The memo was the last of 17 memos that compile what is known as the dossier. BuzzFeed published the dossier Jan. 10, 2017. (RELATED: John McCain Associate Gave Dossier To BuzzFeed)


BuzzFeed apologized to Gubarev after the lawsuit was filed and redacted his name from the copy of the dossier posted to its website. But the website hired a private investigator — a former FBI and National Security Council official named Anthony Ferrante — to uncover evidence to support its legal defense.


Carter Page (Mark Wilson/Getty)

BuzzFeed was also sued in 2018 by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. The dossier accuses Cohen of visiting Prague during the 2016 campaign to meet with Kremlin officials and to pay off Russian hackers. Cohen has vehemently denied the allegations, but dropped the lawsuit amid other legal problems.

He was sentenced to three years in prison Dec. 13, 2018, on a variety of charges.

In her final order in the case, Ungaro revealed BuzzFeed obtained the dossier through David Kramer, a former State Department official and close associate of the late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain. Kramer gave BuzzFeed’s Ken Bensinger a copy of the dossier Dec. 28, 2016.

The discovery process of the case revealed Steele and opposition research firm Fusion GPS’s efforts to provide the dossier to journalists. Steele and Fusion founder Glenn Simpson met with reporters from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, CNN and Yahoo! News in September and October 2016.

Steele and Fusion GPS executives were deposed during the discovery process in the case.

The FBI relied heavily on some of Steele’s unverified memos to obtain surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Steele, a former MI6 officer, alleged in his report that Page met secretly with Kremlin insiders during a visit to Moscow in July 2016.

The FBI cited Steele’s unverified claims as part of a probable cause affidavit to obtain spy warrants against Page. Republicans have accused the FBI of misleading the surveillance court by relying on Steele’s unverified dossier and for failing to disclose it was ultimately funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC.

Opposition protesters fill streets of Venezuelan capital

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CARACAS, Venezuela — Jan 30, 2019, 7:19 PM ET

Venezuelans of every age, class and profession poured into the streets of the capital on Wednesday to demand that President Nicolas Maduro step down and to express their support for the young opposition leader who has declared himself interim president.

Dressed in suits, scrubs, and jeans, they waved the national flag, displayed signs, and chanted slogans. One disgusted vendor threw devalued national currency into the air.

Protesters who made an appearance were heeding a call from opposition leader Juan Guaido to stage mass demonstrations despite crackdowns on previous protests.

Here are some scenes from across Caracas:

NO MORE DICTATORSHIP

Marching outside an office building on the eastern side of the city, Evelyn Melendez carried a red-and-white sign that read, "No more dictatorship," and sang songs opposing Maduro.

Melendez said she lives in a working-class neighborhood at the opposite end of the city, but she is too afraid to protest near her home, because in her neighborhood she has already been beaten up by government supporters for canvassing for an opposition party.

"Things are very tough here," said the 23-year-old Melendez, who wore a black T-shirt and baseball cap. "People are dying of hunger and over the lack of medicines. We hope that Maduro, the usurper, steps down from the presidency and stops causing harm to our people."

GASSED PENSIONERS

Leyda Brito turned up at one of Wednesday's protests wearing a red helmet with the number 647. It stands for the number of days that have passed since a group of pensioners was gassed by Venezuelan police during a protest in 2017.

Brito, 60, said she is struggling to live off her pension, which is roughly $10 a month. She said she was particularly frustrated by the Venezuelan government's refusal to accept international humanitarian aid.

"Maduro is a tyrant," Brito said. "We need a transition here and we need free elections."

WORTHLESS CASH

A woman who identified herself as Josefina arrived at one of the protest points in Caracas holding a thick wad of bolivar bills.

The notes were issued early last year by Venezuela's Central Bank but hyperinflation has rendered them worthless. Josefina, who lives in a hillside slum and works as a street vendor, threw the green bills up in the air in protest, as she screamed out chants against Maduro's government.

"This money is worth nothing," said Josefina, who declined to give her last name for fear of repercussions from the government.

"Our military needs to man up and take the peoples' side," she said, referring to the military's ongoing support of Maduro.

Josefina is hopeful that the economy will improve if Guaido becomes the country's president. "Maduro has no support in my neighborhood," she said.

WANTED: INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE

Construction company owner Pedro Cruz attended a walkout Wednesday with a half-dozen of his employees.

Carrying a large Venezuelan flag, Cruz said further repression of protests was likely in the upcoming days, but he is hopeful that the United States and more than two dozen other countries supporting Guaido will be able to put pressure on Maduro and force him to hold transparent elections.

"We have been under the occupation of Cuba for too long," Cruz said, referring to the country's close ties to the communist-run island. Cuba's late president Fidel Castro traded favors and sustained a long friendship with the late socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

"But we have to be optimistic," Cruz added. "We have the support of many countries, and that could help us reach a solution."

AN AILING COUNTRY

Wearing a white medical jacket over surgical scrubs, anesthesiologist Hugo Rosillo led a team of doctors and nurses to the street to protest in front of a once-renowned children's hospital that he said now feels more like a "storeroom for cadavers."

Rosillo said he has some hope for the country given Guaido's push to form a transitional government.

"We are facing the biggest crossroads that we have had since the revolution," Rosillo said.

A change needs to come soon. Rosillo said medical shortages have prevented doctors from treating curable illnesses at the J.M. de los Rios Children's Hospital, located just blocks from the Miraflores presidential palace.

He said medical personnel have been unable to provide basic antibiotics to treat common infections or relief to families whose children have cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

"And we the doctors are frustrated and immigrating to other countries," he said.

LAURA INGRAHAM ASKS IF CORY BOOKER STILL BELIEVES ‘ALL ‘VICTIMS’ AFTER SEXUAL ASSAULT ‘SMEAR’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham asked Monday night if Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker still feels the same way about believing “all victims” after he was accused of male-on-male sexual assault.

“Cory Booker said we should believe all victims, whether they’re anonymous or identified. But does he really want to live by that standard?” Ingraham asked.

An anonymous homosexual man posted a letter on Twitter over the weekend that claimed Booker had sexually assaulted him in a bathroom sometime in 2014.

Ingraham said the allegation was “a smear,” but suggested so too were the sexual misconduct accusations leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh prior and during his appearance at his Senate confirmation hearing.

Still, Ingraham insisted, “if you’re going to make an allegation like this, you have to put your name to it.”

“We don’t raise this issue because we automatically assume it has credibility,” Ingraham said. “I don’t like anonymous allegations. We actually think everyone should wait for the details to come in before we say something like this, right?”

Ingraham said it showed hypocrisy for Democrats to insist unsubstantiated allegations against Kavanaugh should have been embraced while ignoring anonymous claims made on social media. Ingraham reiterated that she wasn’t trying to promote the Twitter letter, just the double standard.

“I don’t like it when people do this kind of stuff,” Ingraham said about the letter. “I believe it is a smear. I mean, if you’re going to make an accusation — this is a supposedly a man making an accusation that something happened in a bathroom — if you’re going to make that kind of accusation you better put your name to it.”

161-count indictment for Philly labor leader John 'Johnny Doc' Dougherty

Federal officials indicted powerful union leader John J. “Johnny Doc” Dougherty and Philadelphia City Councilman Bobby Henon Wednesday morning, making the announcement at a press conference on South Street. Five other Local 98 members were included in the indictment.

First Assistant U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of Pennsylvania Jennifer Arbittier Williams led the press conference, announcing a 161-count indictment that also included a local business owner. They include Brian Burrows, president of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; Michael Neill, training director; Marita Crawford, political director; Nico Rodriguez, treasurer of Brighter Pennsylvania PAC; and Brian Fiocca, Dougherty's nephew and union member, along with Anthony Massa, owner and operator of Massa Construction.

The charges come more than two years after the FBI and IRS raided more than a dozen offices of people connected to IBEW Local 98, including Dougherty. The FBI has had a wiretap on Doughtery for a year.

"Union leaders and public officials are held to similar standards. Both are required to act in the best interest of others. When they violate that duty in order to enrich themselves, it's a federal crime. When they conspire together to do so, it's a federal crime," said Arbittier Williams.

The 161-count indictment included various charges, including conspiracy to embezzle labor union funds, falsification of labor union financial records, and making false statements to the FBI, according to Arbittier Williams.

"John Dougherty and co-defenders conspired to embezzle Local 98 money for their own personal benefit and to benefit their families, their friends and their commercial businesses," she added.

George Peltz, a South Jersey contractor and an ally of Dougherty's, pleaded guilty Monday in connection to the federal probe. Peltz admitted to providing more than $60,000 in gifts, including home and office improvements, to an unnamed union official.

On Tuesday, Dr. James Moylan, the former Zoning Board Chairman of Philadelphia, was also indicted in connection to the investigation. Prosecutors say he used more than $40,000 in union donations to pay his business and personal expenses. He stepped down as zoning board chair after federal agents raided his home and chiropractic business.

Dougherty, 58, has long been one of Philadelphia’s most powerful political figures, despite never holding public office.

Dougherty is head of the broader Philadelphia Building Trades Council, and has sat on influential boards like the Delaware River Port Authority. Many inside Philadelphia City Hall consider him to be most influential at the city council level, where he has had a hand in getting several current members, including former Local 98 protege Henon, elected.

NBC10 obtained a copy of a letter Dougherty sent to union members Monday that touted recent union successes and said he will "continue to be your business manager for the foreseeable future."

“He is confident that his colleagues will respect any possible upcoming legal process and support him,” the statement read. “Councilman Henon is a dedicated public servant and will continue to serve as councilman."

Both Dougherty and Henon have denied any wrongdoing.

When asked about the indictment, Mayor Jim Kenney called it "unfortunate," adding that no one in his administration would be implicated. Kenney also will not ask for Henon's resignation, instead allowing Henon to make the decision.

Pennsylvania Democrats rocked by indictment of top political boss

The powerful union leader known as ‘Johnny Doc’ heads ‘the single-most effective political organization’ in the key 2020 state.

Suddenly, when we finally have a President trying to end wars and withdraw troops, the Senate miraculously rallies to act, to wrongly try to stop wars from ending.

Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Withhold Pay From Congress, President During Shutdowns

A group of House lawmakers has introduced a bill that would withhold pay from members of Congress, the president, and vice president during a government shutdown. Congressman Jared Golden (D-Maine) was joined by Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) and Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.) in introducing the Solidarity in Salary Act of 2019 (pdf) on Jan. 29. The intention of the bill is to prevent and limit the duration of future shutdowns and ensure that lawmakers feel the harm they cause federal employees when they fail to fund the government, according to a statement.


About 800,000 federal employees did not receive their pay during the most recent partial government shutdown—nearly 380,000 federal employees were furloughed and 420,000 worked without pay during the shutdown. Many federal government agencies halted some of their activities or faced a jump in employees calling in sick, which prompted concerns in several areas like travel and food safety.


The partial government shutdown ended after President Donald Trump signed a short-term spending bill on Jan. 25, to temporarily reopen the government. This ended the longest furlough in history that began Dec. 22, as a result of a standoff between the White House and Democratic leaders over funding for a border wall. Trump praised the federal employees and their families as “incredible patriots” and “amazing.” The White House promised federal workers that they would be paid as soon as possible. “Federal workers don’t get paid during a government shutdown. Neither should politicians. That’s just common sense,” Golden said in a statement. Under the bill, the daily pay of members of Congress, the president, and vice president would be placed in escrow for each day the government is closed and will only be released after the government is reopened. “Federal employees should never have to carry the burden caused by a dysfunctional government; that’s why I’m proud to cosponsor this legislation,” Crenshaw said. During the partial government shutdown, Crenshaw asked the Chief Administrative Officer to withhold his pay until the government reopened. Many social media users praised him for this move. “I cannot in good conscience get paid while federal employees’ financial futures hang in the balance because of this partial government shutdown,” the former Navy SEAL wrote in a tweet on Jan. 10.


The federal government partially shut down on Dec. 22, after Congress failed to come to an agreement about funding. The president is asking for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall—a promise he made during his election campaign—to be included in a comprehensive border security package requested by experts from the Department of Homeland Security. The package will fund more border patrol agents, immigration judges, and scanning equipment at ports of entry. Democratic leaders in Congress refused to negotiate to fund for a border wall while the government was closed, calling it expensive and ineffective. Trump’s move to reopen the government is a temporary concession that returns the spotlight to House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). The federal government has three weeks until Feb. 15, for them to negotiate long-term funding for border security.

They don't live off their pay. They become millionaires because of their 'donations' and business deals they profit from using inside information. This is all a big sham

Judicial Watch: Defense, State Department Documents Reveal Obama Administration Knew that al Qaeda Terrorists Had Planned Benghazi Attack 10 Days in Advance

I cannot add a "like" to this post because the content is utterly repulsive.

On the other hand, I really like the fact that 10 days of prior knowledge provides irrefutable evidence that the military stand-down order and summary dismissal of flag officers who wanted to respond was tantamount to treason and murder.

Everyone involved in the Benghazi stand down and coverup should be hanged.

Maybe this will be part of the end-run around the 33,000 HRC emails...

Democrats Reject GOP Proposal to Block Raises for Federal Employees Guilty of Sexual Misconduct


A Republican proposal, which would add a provision to block federal employees disciplined for sexual misconduct from receiving the same pay raise as their colleagues, was rejected by House Democrats on Jan. 30. Although 17 Democrats crossed the aisle to support the amendment, most voted to reject the legislation in a 216–206 vote that successfully blocked it. Republicans added the provision to a bill that would give a 2.6 percent pay raise to all civilian federal employees. “During calendar year 2019, no increase in pay as authorized under this Act may be provided to any Federal employee who has been disciplined for sexual misconduct under chapter 75 of title 5, United States Code, or any other provision of law,” the proposal text by the GOP read. The bill passed without the amendment and now goes to the Senate.


The rejection of the amendment drew sharp rebukes from Republicans. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said the blockage was “outrageous.” “House Democrats just voted to give pay increases to federal bureaucrats with a history of sexual misconduct with your tax dollars,” he wrote on Twitter Jan. 31. “Outrageous.” Mark Walker (R-N.C.) said the move was hypocritical, given the Democrats’ talk of the #MeToo movement. “Democrats blocked us from preventing federal workers disciplined for sexual misconduct from getting a pay raise. I’m grateful to the 17 Democrats who voted their conscience. So much fake outrage in Washington,”he wrote on Twitter.


Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-Calif.) was one of the Democrats who voted against the proposal. Cardenas, who chaired the vote for the Democrats in the House, was accused last year of drugging and groping a 16-year-old girl in 2007 and is being sued by the woman in civil court. Cardenas has denied the allegations. A spokesperson for House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said GOP members will continue to push for fair pay. “As Washington Democrats continue their ill-advised push for unilateral pay raises for federal employees, regardless of their performance, Republicans continue to ask Democrats to amend their legislation,” said Erin Perrine. “Currently, this bill treats victims the same as their harassers. That makes no sense.”

U.S. EXPECTED TO ANNOUNCE INF TREATY WITHDRAWAL AS SOON AS FRIDAY



WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is poised to announce Friday that it is withdrawing from a treaty that has been a centerpiece of superpower arms control since the Cold War and whose demise some analysts worry could fuel a new arms race.



An American withdrawal, which has been expected for months, would follow years of unresolved dispute over Russian compliance with the pact, known as the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces, or INF, treaty. It was the first arms control measure to ban an entire class of weapons: ground-launched cruise missiles with a range between 500 kilometers and 5,000 kilometers. Russia denies that it has been in violation.



U.S. officials also have expressed worry that China, which is not party to the 1987 treaty, is gaining a significant military advantage in Asia by deploying large numbers of missiles with ranges beyond the treaty’s limit. Leaving the INF treaty would allow the Trump administration to counter the Chinese, but it’s unclear how it would do that.



Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in early December that Washington would give Moscow 60 days to return to compliance before it gave formal notice of withdrawal, with actual withdrawal taking place six months later. The 60-day deadline expires on Saturday, and the administration is expected to say as early as Friday that efforts to work out a compliance deal have failed and that it would suspend its compliance with the treaty’s terms.



The State Department said Pompeo would make a public statement on Friday morning, but it did not mention the topic.



In a tweet Thursday, the chief spokeswoman for NATO, Oana Lungescu, said there are no signs of getting a compliance deal with Russia.



“So we must prepare for a world without the Treaty,” she wrote.



Technically, a U.S. withdrawal would take effect six months after this week’s notification, leaving a small window for saving the treaty. However, in talks this week in Beijing, the U.S. and Russia reported no breakthrough in their dispute, leaving little reason to think either side would change its stance on whether a Russian cruise missile violates the pact.



A Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, was quoted by the Russian state news agency Tass as saying after the Beijing talks Thursday, “Unfortunately, there is no progress. The position of the American side is very tough and like an ultimatum.” He said he expects Washington now to suspend its obligations under the treaty, although he added that Moscow remains ready to “search for solutions” that could keep the treaty in force.



U.S. withdrawal raises the prospect of further deterioration in U.S.-Russian relations, which already are arguably at the lowest point in decades, and debate among U.S. allies in Europe over whether Russia’s alleged violations warrant a countermeasure such as deployment of an equivalent American missile in Europe. The U.S. has no nuclear-capable missiles based in Europe; the last of that type and range were withdrawn in line with the INF treaty.



The prospect of U.S. withdrawal from the INF pact has stirred concern globally. The mayor of Des Moines, Iowa, Frank Cownie, is among dozens of local officials and lawmakers in the U.S., Canada, Europe and elsewhere who signed a letter this week to President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin expressing worry at the “unraveling” of the INF treaty and other arms constraints.



“Withdrawing from treaties takes a step in the wrong direction,” Cownie said in a telephone interview. “It’s wasn’t just Des Moines, Iowa. It’s people from all around this country that are concerned about the future of our cities, of our country, of this planet.”



The American ambassador to NATO, Kay Bailey Hutchison, set the rhetorical stage for Washington’s withdrawal announcement by asserting Thursday that Russia has been in violation for years, including in Ukraine. She said in a tweet and a video message about the INF treaty that Russia is to blame for its demise.

Senate GOP Readies Battering Ram Against Dems’ Confirmation Blockade



WASHINGTON—Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and his Republican colleagues are sick and tired of Democrats constantly delaying confirmation of President Donald Trump’s judicial and executive appointments. And they aren’t going to take it anymore. Maybe. The issue took on new urgency last month when 376 Trump nominations were returned to the White House, not due to Senate rejection, but because “the world’s greatest deliberative body” never voted them up or down.



As a result, hundreds of key positions throughout the federal government remain vacant or are being filled on an acting basis by lower-level officials. Important decisions aren’t made, needed new initiatives are stalled, and the routine flow of the public’s business is seriously disrupted. Among the returned nominations in December were the general counsel for the Department of the Navy, the inspector general of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, governors for the U.S. Postal Service, an assistant secretary of Commerce, and ambassadors to Morocco and Colombia.

Gawd what a haggard wretch.


Angela Merkel: Federal Chancellor closes her Facebook page

The Chancellor goes offline - at least on Facebook: Angela Merkel will close her page in the social network shortly. This was announced by the former CDU leader on Friday on her channel. But she did not share the exact time of the shutdown.

In a half-minute video message, Merkel addresses her approximately 2.5 million fans and thanks them for their support.

And it will hurt the long-term functioning of our government.”

Congressional Research Service: President Can Build Border Wall Without National Emergency or Additional Action by Congress
Congressional Research Service (CRS) says President Trump has the legal authority to build significant portions of a border wall without additional congressional authorization or declaring a national emergency.
That conclusion was reached in a report released by the nonpartisan federal agency on January 10. A Department of Defense official made a similar legal argument in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday.
Exhausting ALL options before committing.

LIBERAL BILLIONAIRE’S ALLEGED ROLE IN A FALSE FLAG OPERATION PUTS DNC IN THE HOT SEAT

Chris White | Energy Reporter

The billionaire allegedly behind the false flag operation in Alabama was planning to roll out a progressive voter database ahead of the 2020 election.
The Democratic National Committee’s top brass is staying quiet about connections to the liberal financier allegedly behind a misinformation campaign in Alabama.
Tech guru Reid Hoffman’s ties to a misinformation campaign in Alabama are leaving Democrat’s mission to revamp a voter database in limbo.
Billionaire Reid Hoffman’s alleged role behind a misinformation campaign in Alabama could potentially hurt the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) mission to revamp the party’s data infrastructure.

Democrats are waging a pitched battle over voter information data, with the national party preferring such data be stored in a large vat while activists want the content decentralized. Hoffman’s plans to create a separate voter database and reports linking him to a false flag operation are complicating the issue.

Democratic operatives meanwhile worry the infighting could hurt the party’s chances of defeating President Donald Trump in 2020.

“We have a crisis,” Robby Mook, a campaign manager for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 White House bid, told reporters in December. “Republicans are going to have a major strategic advantage over us in 2020 if we don’t fix it.” One DNC adviser suggested a solution.

Mary Beth Cahill, a senior adviser to the DNC, expressed a willingness to work with Hoffman on a plan helping the party establish a revamped voter database. Democrats worry the billionaire LinkedIn founder’s plan to go it alone could leave the party on the outside looking in.

“The DNC believes the creation of a data trust is imperative to winning in 2020 and beyond, and we are open to participating alongside a variety of partners in a data trust that protects the interests of our party and ensures state parties have what they need to win,” Cahill said in a Dec. 10 press statement.

Neither House Speaker Nancy Pelosi nor Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer responded to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the prospects of a DNC-Hoffman collaboration. The committee also did not make DNC Chair Tom Perez available for an interview on the subject.

Their silence on a potential Hoffman collaboration comes on the heels of reports that various groups-aligned with the Silicon Valley tech guru used his money to orchestrate a massive misinformation campaign during the midterms. Hoffman later apologized for the ruse, but the damage was already done.

Operatives connected with tech firm New Knowledge created thousands of Twitter accounts posing as Russian bots to boost the election-year chances of Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, The New York Times reported on Dec. 19. The accounts began following then-Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore’s Twitter account in October 2017. Jones has since called for a probe.

The scheme worked like a charm. It attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore’s candidacy. The Montgomery Advertiser, for instance, was the first to cover the story using the Russian bot angle. National media outlets quickly followed suit. Some media pundits even mocked Moore for accusing Democrats of trolling his account.

Former President Barack Obama campaign organizer, Mikey Dickerson, was instrumental in a disinformation campaign targeting Moore, reports show, as was Evan Coren, who has worked for the National Archives unit since Obama’s first term. Hoffman and his associates were connected to another misinformation campaign during that same year.

Trump Economy: Blue-Collar Wages Rise Faster than White-Collar

Salaries for college graduate Americans are growing much slower than for Americans who are working in transportation, restaurants, services, construction, and sales, according to federal data.

Average pay grew 3.0 percent in the 12 months up to December, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, employees in the broad “management, professional, and related” category gained only 2.5 percent.

But there was a 4.2 percent rise in wages for “sales and related” employees, a 3.7 percent rise for “production, transportation, and material moving” workers, a 3.4 percent rise for “trade, transportation, and utilities” workers, and a 4.1 gain for “leisure and hospitality” workers.

Real jobs.

MOAR ON SABRINA (PRIESTAP) MENSHEL

“Feb. 12, 2018—On Dec. 21, 2015, then FBI Director James B. Comey appointed William E. “Bill” Priestap as Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division at the FBI.

Priestap is embroiled in the current cover-up of the FBI’s lies and disinformation to Senate and House Judiciary, Intelligence and Homeland Security Committees.

Investigations into Priestap’s background reveal some new clues about his Deep State mission at the FBI.

Priestap’s biographies are uniformly missing the name(s) of the universities where he claims to have received education and business degrees. Clearly, the identities of those schools are being intentionally withheld. What are Mr. Priestap and the FBI hiding?

Savina Menschel PriestapSecond, Priestap’s spouse, Sabina Menschel, has a suspiciously successful intelligence resume for a 1999 Harvard College graduate, then 2005 Harvard MBA grad. Menschel IMMEDIATELY became a Special Advisor at the FBI (Jul. 2005)—a truly magical rise.

Larry SummersNote that Sabina attended Harvard Business School during the tenure of Lawrence “Larry” Summers as President where his chief of staff was Marne L. Levine (Deutch).

Levine (Deutch) is related to Bill Clinton’s disgraced and pardoned (with fraudster Marc Rich) C.I.A. Director Philip J. Deutch. She later was senior advisor to Hillary Clinton (2009), then became vice president at Facebook. She is now chief operating officer at Instagram (owned by Facebook)—another truly magical rise.

Note that Facebook Boy King cardboard cutout Mark Zuckerberg started attending Harvard in 2001, contemporaneously with Sabina—another truly magical coincidence.

Richard MenschelSabina’s father, Richard L. Menschel, funded HarvardX in 2013—one of the primary M.O.O.C. platforms for the takeover of higher education by the Deep State shadow government. M.O.O.C. means “Massive Open Online Course.” It is essentially Common Core for higher education.”

Rashida Tlaib Broke Michigan Election Law By Lying About Her Address

Tlaib broke Michigan election law by failing to live in the State House district that she represented for years after the retirement of a Democrat she interned for. Tlaib lived in progressive suburban Dearborn, a lengthy drive from the suffering southwest Detroit district that she represented.

Tlaib’s own father confirmed that she “lied” about her residence when she chose to run for office.

Congressman Jon Bumstead of Michigan confirmed to Big League Politics through an intermediary that state representatives in Michigan are legally required to live in their districts.

Kamala Harris to oppose any of Trump's appeals court nominees

Harris will oppose any of President Trump's picks for the powerful appeals courts after the administration moved forward with nominees for the Ninth Circuit.

"This Administration is packing the court that protected Dreamers from deportation and blocked the unconstitutional transgender military ban. We need nominees who will uphold equality and justice. Until a fair process is in place, I will oppose every nominee to an appellate court," Harris said in a tweet.

Her decision comes after Trump revived a months-long feud by nominating three judicial picks to fill three of California's seats on the Ninth Circuit.

True change has to take place on the inside before it manifests outside. We're stoking the fire for a blaze of glory and justice.
