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.
Yeah, I'd just like to slap Harris across the teeth!

Arkansas Supreme Court rules - city can't enforce LGBT protections

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas’ highest court on Thursday said a city can’t enforce its ordinance banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, saying it’s already ruled the measure violates a state law aimed at preventing local protections for LGBT people.

The state Supreme Court unanimously reversed a Washington County judge’s decision to allow Fayetteville to continue enforcing its anti-discrimination ordinance while the city challenged the constitutionality of a 2015 law preventing cities and counties from enacting protections not covered by state law. Arkansas’ civil rights law doesn’t cover sexual orientation or gender identity.

Digging on this analytical chemistry stuff.

Looks like most of the reference material. Analytical Chemistry reference material used in fetal tissue research is made in China and imported into the states. This reference material is basically ground up babies.

They do an extraction on the material and isolate the specific compound of interest. Then they analyze it used the instruments people have been talking about. Basic analytical chemistry. -Production lab stuff.

But the reference material? Should it not be regulated as well?

Becasue I'm seeing many methods of analysis and in the Bibliography they site the source of the reference material.

Otherwise no one could duplicate the work and publish.

Sen. Graham Demands To Know Whether FBI Tipped Off CNN to Stone Raid

Graham unleashed!

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on Wednesday denounced the “media circus” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and the tactics used to arrest Trump supporter Roger Stone at his Florida home.

Stone was arrested Friday as part of Mueller’s long-running probe into allegations that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia. Stone was indicted on charges of obstruction, making false statements and witness tampering related to comments he made and actions he took regarding the release of information by WikiLeaks in 2016, Fox News has reported.

Stone was arrested by multiple heavily armed agents.

A CNN film crew was there to record the event.

We now see what is going on. "Coonman" @GovernorVA, a racist, was bought by @PPFA for $2 million to support infanticide & expanded abortions, which most abortions happen in minority communities.
This man is doing exactly what a racist would do; work to reduce minority population

One Of The Biggest At-Home DNA Testing Companies Is Secretly Sharing Data With The FBI

Just one week ago, we warned that the government — helped by Congress (which adopted legislation allowing police to collect and test DNA immediately following arrests), President Trump (who signed the Rapid DNA Act into law), the courts (which have ruled that police can routinely take DNA samples from people who are arrested but not yet convicted of a crime), and local police agencies (which are chomping at the bit to acquire this new crime-fighting gadget) — was embarking on a diabolical campaign to create a nation of suspects predicated on a massive national DNA database.

As it turns out we were right, but we forgot one key spoke of the government's campaign to collect genetic information from as many individuals as possible: "innocent", commercial companies, who not only collect DNA from willing clients, but are also paid for it.

FamilyTreeDNA, one of the pioneers of the growing market for "at home", consumer genetic testing, confirmed a report from BuzzFeed that it has quietly granted the Federal Bureau of Investigation access to its vast trove of nearly 2 million genetic profiles.

While concerns about unrestricted access to genetic information gathered by testing companies had swelled since April, when police used a genealogy website to ensnare a suspect in the decades-old case of the Golden State Killer, that site, GEDmatch, was open-source, meaning police were able to upload crime-scene DNA data to the site without permission. However, the latest arrangement marks the first time a commercial testing company has voluntarily given law enforcement access to user data.

Worse, it did so secretly, without obtaining prior permission from its users.

The move is of significant concern to much more than just privacy-minded FamilyTreeDNA customers. As Bloomberg notes, one person sharing genetic information also exposes those to whom they are closely related. That’s how police caught the alleged Golden State Killer. And here is a stunning statistics - according to a 2018 study, only 2% of the population needs to have done a DNA test for virtually everyone’s genetic information to be represented in that data.

Thanks to its millions of customers, FamilyTreeDNA’s "cooperation" with the FBI more than doubles the amount of genetic data law enforcement already had access to through GEDmatch. According to BuzzFeed, and as confirmed by the company, on a case-by-case basis the company has agreed to test DNA samples for the FBI and upload profiles to its database, allowing law enforcement to see familial matches to crime-scene samples.

There is one caveat: FamilyTreeDNA said law enforcement may not freely browse genetic data but rather has access only to the same information any user might. Which of course, is ridiculous when the FBI has the same access as every single user.

Needless to say, the genealogy community has expressed dismay.

"Planned Parenthood makes big money move to fight right-wing attacks"

To better fend off attacks from conservative lawmakers and governors, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky is joining forces with its far larger and richer counterpart that serves the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii.

The CEO of the combined alliance said it will have more money and legal muscle to fight “unrelenting attempts to undo constitutionally protected rights.”

The alliance will have a combined annual budget of as much as $90 million and serve 164,000 patients at 45 health centers in six states.

Chris Charbonneau, CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (and now Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky), said the merger is part of a conscious effort of affiliates in blue states to help patients and organizations in states that are less hospitable to reproductive freedom

Government revokes charity status of Canadian Jewish group that supported ‘foreign armed forces’

A Canadian Jewish organization has been stripped of its charity status following a government audit that found it had provided support to “foreign armed forces,” according to documents obtained by Global News.

The Beth Oloth Charitable Organization, based in Toronto, had been a registered charity since 1980 and was one of richest in Canada, with more than $60-million in revenues in 2017.

But federal regulators said some of its activities were not charitable under Canadian law, such as “increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the Israeli armed forces.”

The Canada Revenue Agency also identified a list of other problems such as funding projects in the occupied territories, which it said was contrary to Canada’s policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

1MDB scandal prompts Goldman to delay bonus for longtime CEO Blankfein

Goldman Sachs is delaying bonus payouts to three retired executives, including longtime chairman Lloyd Blankfein, until it gathers more details from a bribery case brought against two high-ranking bankers under his watch, according to regulatory filings and a person familiar with the matter. The New York-based company's board also delayed a decision on the size of the bonuses, part of an incentive plan set up in 2011 with potential awards of $7 million each, according to a Friday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Goldman warned last fall that it may face significant fines and other sanctions in the case, which centers on claims that money from a Malaysian client's bond sale was used for bribes to secure overseas business.

The Wall Street firm said in a filing last fall that it "is cooperating with the Department of Justice and all other government and regulatory investigations related to 1 Malaysia Development Berhad," a sovereign wealth fund known as 1MDB, for which Goldman underwrote about $6.5 billion in debt offerings in 2012 and 2013. The 64-year-old Blankfein, who stepped down as CEO at the end of September but remained chairman through the end of 2018, still received $20.5 million in total compensation for the year, the firm said its filing. David Solomon, who succeeded him in both roles, was paid $23 million. "We are cooperating with the Department of Justice and other regulators and are focused on a timely but deliberative process," Solomon told investors on an earnings call in mid-January. "We have established important facts in our own review of this matter over the last three years, and we, of course, would like to provide more information to you but for now, this is still an open investigation."

Goldman previously made national headlines and drew congressional scrutiny nine years ago over the sale of securities blamed for the 2008 financial crisis. It paid $550 million to settle SEC claims that it misled investors in one of the instruments.

Embattled California utility spent most for 2018 lobbying


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. spent nearly $10 million on California lobbying efforts in the year before the utility giant declared bankruptcy, spending more than any other entity seeking to influence California government in 2018.

The majority of that money — more than $5 million — was spent for lobbying on proposals involving wildfire safety and response, including whether to reduce the strict liability utilities face when their equipment sparks wildfires.

Lawmakers ultimately didn’t reduce the liability but passed a law making it easier for utilities to take out bonds to cover wildfire damages and pass some costs on to ratepayers.

PG&E, the nation’s largest utility, filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy Tuesday as it faces potentially tens of billions of dollars in liability from devastating wildfires that ripped through Northern California in 2017 and 2018. The bankruptcy filing could lead to smaller payouts to wildfire victims and increased costs for PG&E customers.

Of the nearly $10 million spent, about $9.6 million went toward general lobbying, which includes things such as hiring in-house lobbyists or major Sacramento firms to advocate on behalf of legislation as well as paying for meals or other perks for state lawmakers.

Between July and September the company spent $6 million lobbying, including buying meals and event tickets for a handful of public employees and giving more than $10,000 in campaign contributions to nine sitting lawmakers and one candidate.

The utility also spent about $350,000 lobbying the California Public Utilities Commission, the entity that regulates it and other utilities.

PG&E is facing 750 lawsuits, its lawyer said in a Thursday court hearing.

Cherokee Nation: Elizabeth Warren apologized for DNA test

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Cherokee Nation says Sen. Elizabeth Warren has apologized for taking a DNA test to push back against President Donald Trump's taunts about her claim of Native American heritage.

Tribe spokeswoman Julie Hubbard said Friday that the Massachusetts Democrat and likely 2020 presidential contender had apologized "for causing confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and the harm that has resulted."

My Pillow Guy!

Anti-abortion movie financed by MyPillow founder to get nationwide distribution

An anti-abortion feature film partially financed by Michael Lindell, the CEO and founder of MyPillow and an ally of President Trump, will reportedly be nationally distributed by a Christian movie studio.

The movie, "Unplanned," follows a young woman who resigns from her place of work (a Planned Parenthood clinic) and renounces the practice of abortion, according to The Washington Times, which reports that the movie has been picked up for national distribution by Pure Flix studios.

"We had other offers but felt they would be our strongest partner because of the great success we've had together in the past," said co-writer Chuck Konzelman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In a trailer for the movie, the woman reportedly is warned not to defy Planned Parenthood, which is described in the movie as "one of the most powerful organizations on the planet."

The movie's script was reportedly written by the writers behind the Christian movies “God’s Not Dead” and “God’s Not Dead 2,” according to the Times, which noted that Lindell, who has attended rallies and White House events on the president's behalf, invested $1 million in the film's production.

Lindell most recently visited the White House in October, where he spoke at a Trump administration opioid abuse summit about his past experiences as a crack cocaine addict, something he says he shared with Trump when the two men first met during Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Donald Trump: Chant ‘Finish the Wall’ Instead of ‘Build the Wall

President Donald Trump asserted Friday he has already started building the border wall, urging supporters not to lose faith.

“The chant should be now, ‘Finish the wall’ because we’re building a lot of wall,” he said to reporters during an event at the White House on Friday.

White House aides claim that Trump has 115 miles of wall that will either be finished or under construction by the end of 2019.

The president said he was still seriously considering declaring a state of emergency at the border, which would allow him to redirect funding to secure the border without Congress.

“I’m certainly thinking about it. I think there’s a good chance we’ll have to do that,” he said. “At the same time, regardless, we’re building the wall. And we’re building a lot of wall.”

Although Trump expressed skepticism that the bipartisan compromise congressional committee can draft a serious border security proposal before February 15, he has said he will wait until the deadline before acting on his own.

Attorney general nominee must assure Senate on Mueller report

William Barr needs to be unequivocal about releasing special counsel Robert Mueller’s full findings.

January 31, 2019 7:18 PM
The next U.S. attorney general will determine which findings by special counsel Robert Mueller will be made public. While President Donald Trump’s nominee, William Barr, likely has the votes in the Republican-controlled Senate to win confirmation, he also must have the confidence of the American people that he will be independent.

Barr, who served in the job for two years under President George H.W. Bush, and in many key Justice Department positions before that, certainly has impressive credentials, even if you disagree with some of his policy positions. Unlike acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who is totally unqualified for the position, the controversy surrounding Barr has little to do with his resume, but much to do with this extraordinary time in the nation. As a special counsel conducts an investigation that could bring down a presidency, Barr’s expansive views of executive privilege, which give the president power to withhold information, raise doubts that he’s the best person for the job right now.

From 8chan


POTUS Roundtable on Human Trafficking
(today)
17 minutes.
I heard it all.
Eyewitness testimony from border LE, rescuers, etc.
Somewhat graphic on children trafficked, young girls forced to service men 30-40x per day, poor/ignorant women recruited in Mexico with promises of "a better life in America", then trafficked and forced to be prostitutes to "pay" for their trafficking, brothel chains where the women are circulated from one brothel to another endlessly. Didn't get into the really gory stuff but the sex trafficking of young children is horrific enough.
Recommended.
My take: POTUS is lifting the veil on these horrors a little at a time, dictated by the pace of public consumption.
One of the people said the reason why there's so much trafficking now, more than ever before, is because (1) the internet enables it and (2) AMERICANS are the biggest consumers of PORNOGRAPHY.

Rhetorical question: how do you reduce the demand for an illegal product that involves some horrific abuses, such as making porn movies with 5 year old kids who were kidnapped in Mexico (one of the stories told in the video) ?

‘Just bring the gold back’: RBA responds as conspiracy theories swirl around Australia’s ‘missing’ gold.

Australia owns 80 tonnes of gold worth $4.4 billion but it’s not even in the country — and the internet is rife with conspiracy theories.

Is Australia’s gold really being secretly melted down and sold to the Chinese?

If you’re into conspiracy theories, talk of impending global economic collapse and have a deep distrust of central banks, you may have come across this one.

It goes like this. Most people would be aware that the Reserve Bank of Australia, like all central banks around the world, holds a portion of the country’s reserve assets in gold.

What you may not know, because it was only made public in December 2012, is that 99.9 per cent of Australia’s $4.4 billion worth is actually held by the Bank of England.

Of that gold, 11 tonnes is “leased” out to earn interest — it brought in around $700,000 last year — while the other 69 tonnes is sitting in a vault in London. Or is it?

“There are all sorts of conspiracy theories and rumours in the gold market as to what’s going on,” said economist John Adams, who has been on a crusade to find Australia’s “missing gold” in a series of videos with Digital Finance Analytics founder Martin North.

The crux of the conspiracy theory, promoted by the likes of Swiss gold trader Egon von Greyerz, is that China, India and other eastern countries are accumulating more gold than can be explained by mining production.

He believes much of it is actually western central banks “covertly disposing” of their gold, or otherwise leasing it to China and India through bullion banks which then “issue an IOU only backed by paper since the physical will never return from Asia”.

“Since 2008 just China and India have accumulated 26,000 tonnes of gold,” Mr von Greyerz wrote recently. “That is a remarkable figure and virtually the total mine production for that period.”

An audit of Australia’s gold holdings was conducted in 2013, but a freedom of information request for the findings and the final report was denied as providing the documents “would, or could reasonably be expected to, cause damage to” the relationship between the RBA and the BoE.

“In the last 20 years we’ve only seen the gold once,” Mr Adams said. “The audit was so flawed it was basically meaningless. We had to tell the BoE six weeks in advance the serial numbers of the bars we wanted to see, that gave them enough time to rig the sample.”

In response to Mr Adams’ videos, the RBA earlier this month added a new page on its website with a series of questions and answers about its gold holdings.

“The RBA’s gold is held at the BoE in an ‘allocated’ account, such that individual bars (with specified bar serial numbers) are attributable to the RBA,” it said.

Trump Drops DACA Deal, Says GOP Is ‘Wasting Their Time’ On Border Security Talks

President Donald Trump announced in a Daily Caller interview published Thursday morning that he’s reconsidering offering Democrats an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (or DACA) Act, in return for funding a portion of the border wall, to the tune of $5 billion.

Trump indicated in his interview that he’d prefer to allow current litigation challenging both the constitutionality of the act itself and the constitutionality of his repeal to make its way through the courts before he offers any concessions on the Act, even if it means he may not get the border wall funding he’s looking for in the next round of budget negotiations.

VOTE NOW: Should Trump Use The Military To Build The Wall? —→

“I could see myself doing something for DACA but I want to find out what the Supreme Court is going to do first,” Trump told the Caller, adding that he believes its “highly unlikely” that the issue will come up.

This is a significant change from just 10 days ago, when the Trump White House offered a three-year extension on DACA, in order to protect illegal immigrants from deportation actions while the Act made its way through the courts, in return for partial border wall funding. That “compromise,” offered just before the White House copped to a three week “continuing resolution” on the budget, was suppsed to entice Democrats into an eleventh hour deal, but didn’t.

Trump’s sudden lack of interest in a DACA deal might signal an unwillingness on the part of the White House to settle for anything less than complete border wall funding, something Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Thursday morning would not be part of any eventual budget deal.

“Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are wasting their time. Democrats, despite all of the evidence, proof and Caravans coming, are not going to give money to build the DESPERATELY needed WALL. I’ve got you covered. Wall is already being built, I don’t expect much help!” Trump tweeted

Venezuala - Guaido has a plan, and capable men:

Juan Guaido speaking at an Anti-Maduro rally in Caracas:

“We are in definitive moments. For a long time they told us that we did not have a plan, and not only do we have a plan, we have capable men to carry it out "

SF, this is a very multi faceted tool in the game of exposing the DIMS. SO far it's working like a charm. They have the rope and are slowly hanging themselves more and more. The amount of work going into this is simply staggering. The optics aren't even a tip of the MAGA iceberg.

SC senators resurrect bill to bring back the electric chair, add firing squad

COLUMBIA, S.C.

S.C. senators have revived a proposal to bring back the electric chair for the state’s death row executions, as well as add firing squads as an execution option.

The proposal passed the state Senate by a 26-13 vote Wednesday, split mostly along party lines. It now heads to the S.C. House, where a similar proposal died last year.

Backed by Senate Republicans, the bill is an attempt to address the S.C. Corrections Department’s inability to carry out executions because it does not have the chemicals needed for lethal injections

Drug companies won’t sell the state the chemicals, fearing legal challenges and bad publicity, said state Sen. Greg Hembree, R-Horry, a supporter of the electrocution proposal.

Virginia governor refuses to resign over racist yearbook photo

The Virginia governor Ralph Northam has refused to resign, despite widespread calls for him to step down in response to the publication of a decades-old picture the Democrat admitted showed him dressed as either a member of the Ku Klux Klan or in blackface.

Northam said he would not resign on Saturday morning, according to the Virginia Democratic party. According to reports, Northam was questioning whether he was actually in the photo which, on Friday night, he said showed his younger self.

“We made the decision to let Governor Northam do the correct thing and resign this morning – we have gotten word he will not do so this morning,” said Susan Swecker, chair of the Democratic party of Virginia. “We stand with Democrats across Virginia and the country calling him to immediately resign.”

A press conference was scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

The photo was included on Northam’s 1984 yearbook page from Eastern Virginia Medical School and was made public on Friday. The Democratic governor publicly confirmed he was one of the two people in the photo, but did not identify which individual he was.

That certainty had apparently dissolved by Saturday, when Northam was reportedly making calls to obtain more information about the photo and casting doubts about whether either of the people in the black-and-white image was actually him.

The Virginia state senator Louise Lucas, a Democrat, told the Washington Post that Northam had called her on Saturday morning to say he didn’t think he was either of the people in the photo.

“He should have said that yesterday, then,” she said.
The New York Times also reported that Northam had been calling his former medical school classmates to obtain more information about the photo.

Northam was scheduled to make a statement at 2.30pm ET, just over 24 hours after the photo was made public.

Big League Politics, a website founded by former employees of the far-right Breitbart News, released the photo and a whirlwind of condemnations followed.

“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” Northam said.

The Virginia legislative black caucus (VLBC) urged Northam to resign, after meeting with him on Friday.

“We fully appreciate all that he has contributed to our Commonwealth,” the group said in a statement. “But given what was revealed today, it is clear that he can no longer effectively serve as Governor. It is time for him to resign, so that Virginia can begin the process of healing.”

Calls for his resignation also poured in from Virginia’s top Democrats and Republicans, as well as the Democratic presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Julián Castro.

On Saturday morning, while a small group of protesters stood outside the Virginia governor’s mansion, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders joined the chorus insisting on Northam’s resignation.

“There is no place for racism in America,” Biden tweeted.

The former vice-president then offered support for the lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax, who is line to take the governorship if Northam resigns. Fairfax is the second black person to be elected to statewide office in Virginia and has not publicly commented on the photograph.

Biden said: “Governor Northam has lost all moral authority and should resign immediately, Justin Fairfax is the leader Virginia needs now.”
