DEEP STATE MOCKINGBIRDS HATE AOC

Democrats are starting to figure out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving . . . to Republicans.

A few days ago, Nancy Pelosi disdainfully dismissed Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal as "the green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”

On today's Morning Joe, there was consensus condemnation of Ocasio-Cortez's opposition to NYC's deal with Amazon to establish an HQ in NYC, which contributed to Amazon's decision to cancel its plans. Donny Deutsch put it in starkest terms, saying Ocasio-Cortez is "extremely dangerous," and "does not know what she's talking about." Deutsch fretted that, from a Dem perspective, Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist sidekicks will "hand the presidency back to Donald Trump."

DONNY DEUTSCH: Joe, I actually called you yesterday, I was so out of my mind; my head was exploding. When you have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who I find extremely dangerous at this point. I hope she doesn't tweet that, who are you Donny Deutsch, I don't care about you or anything. Because basically she has a twitter following: that's her power base. To basically come out and say, as you pointed out, what a great thing it is that we can take that money and give it to teachers. It doesn't exist. It's an abatement. $27 billion, we put down 3. That's business. That's what happens. You attach this to the Green Deal and you are handing President Trump–President Trump now gets to go, oh, the Democrats don't want jobs, the Democrats don't want companies coming to your neighborhoods, the Democrats have a Green Deal, that wants a 70% tax rate, that wants jobs for everybody even if–just handed to you. Tuition, handed to you. Socialism.

We are in a dangerous place, and if people don't, in the party, don't start to speak up against people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is young and dynamic, but does not know what she's talking about. And her, and her cohorts, some of these new, fresh, progressive faces, are going to hand the presidency back to Donald Trump.

President Trump Declares National Emergency — Accuses Chuck and Nancy of “Con-Game” (VIDEO)

President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on the US southern border on Friday.

The Republican president spoke to reporters in the Rose Garden on Friday morning.

This comes after Congress failed to offer a viable solution to the ongoing crisis on the southern border.

* Obama Declared National Emergencies 13 Times Including Swine Flu, Iran and Flint Water Crisis

President Trump accused Minority leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker Pelosi of a con-game with the open borders.

Of course it’s a national emergency.

-Largest fentanyl bust in history, enough to kill 57 million Americans
-The caravans keep coming
-Angel families losing loved ones to violent criminals

What will it take for the Left to acknowledge the crisis on our border? #DoWhatWeSaid

Mitch McConnell Told Trump No ‘Land Mines’ in Spending Bill, a ‘Win’ over Pelosi

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly gave President Donald Trump false information about legislation to prevent a second partial government shutdown, claiming the bill possesses no “hidden provisions” or “landmines.”

The Kentucky Republican also is said to have told the president that signing the bill into law would be a “win” over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has long opposed any funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall, having called the proposal “immoral.”

The New York Times reports:

A balky president was concerned that signing the measure could impose restraints on his ability to tap other funds and was urged by his chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to tell Republican leaders to instead pass a short-term bill to keep the government open while reopening negotiations, according to a Republican briefed on the situation.

Such a move would have unraveled the delicate bipartisan balance favored by Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, who wanted to move beyond the wall fight. In a telephone conversation on Thursday, Mr. Trump asked Mr. McConnell whether the spending measure included any hidden provisions or “land mines,” and the senator reassured him it did not, according to a person familiar with the call.

Similarly, Kirstjen Nielsen, the homeland security secretary, and White House lawyers told him that he could still move money around, and Ms. Nielsen said that the spending package was actually better than a short-term measure. Mr. McConnell argued that it was a win over Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Money in the bill for border barriers, about $1.4 billion, is far below the $5.7 billion President Trump insisted he needed and would finance just a quarter of the 200-plus miles he wanted. The White House said he would sign the legislation but act unilaterally to get more, prompting condemnations from Democrats and threats of lawsuits from states and others who might lose federal money or said the president was abusing his authority.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed in a statement that the president will sign the funding bill and take executive action to build the wall. “President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency – to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border. The President is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country,” Sanders said.

Portland City Council votes to leave Joint Terrorism Task Force, cites sanctuary status and investigation of Antifa

The Portland, Oregon, City Council voted to pull out of the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force on Wednesday, after rejoining the partnership four years ago. Commissioners voiced their distrust of the agency and of President Donald Trump in arguing for the withdrawal, which will end the cooperation between local police and federal law enforcement.

What are the details?

Oregon Public Broadcasting reported that the 3-2 decision came after a push led by new Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who won election in November on a pledge to protect the city's sanctuary status.

"For a whole year, I talked about this on the campaign trail, and everywhere I went, people were concerned about whether or not their data was collected and used in a way that was against Oregon state law," Hardesty said. "We are here today because I am about keeping promises."

Commissioners Amanda Fritz and Chloe Eudaly joined Hardesty in voting for the withdrawal.

"The current president has made clear his animosity toward Muslims, immigrants and people of color," Fritz reasoned to the council. "I found it hard to trust the JTTF under President [Barack] Obama. It's impossible now."

According to the Willamette Week, opponents of the partnership also voiced concern over the FBI's investigations of left-leaning activist groups like Antifa, and argued that cooperation with the feds hadn't been effective enough in stopping terrorist attacks in Portland or elsewhere.

"The city of Boston's participation in the JTTF did not prevent the Boston Marathon bombing," Fritz noted.

Eudaly told KOIN-TV ahead of the vote that she was concerned about the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's participation in the partnership.

Mayor Ted Wheeler and Commissioner Nick Fish voted against the withdrawal, saying that working with the FBI gives local law enforcement a heads up on potential threats.

Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw agreed, issuing a statement voicing her support for continuing participation in the JTTF and warned that pulling out would mean "we may be walled off from the day-to-day information from other agencies that is vital to protecting our community."

Portland has had an on-again, off-again relationship with JTTF, according to the Oregonian. The city first joined in 1997, left in 2005, rejoined in a limited capacity in 2011 and restored its full participation in 2015. It now has 90 days to leave the task force again.

DEUTSCHE BANK RENEGS ON IT"S PLEDGE TO HELP DISTRESSED HOMEOWNER'S

This ought to win Deutsche Bank some badly needed good will with global prosecutors investigating the bank for its involvement in various financial frauds - not to mention Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters.

According to a Bloomberg report on Friday, DB has decided - apparently with the blessing of a federally appointed monitor - that it won't pay out the $4 billion balance on its commitment to help distressed homeowners impacted by the housing collapse. The bank had agreed to spend billions of dollars on consumer relief during the waning days of the Obama administration as part of a massive settlement with the DOJ over its role in selling mortgages.

Instead, the bank will use the money on providing new loans.

The bank's monitor said the decision might disappoint some homeowners who had reached out to the bank for relief over the past two years…but, to be fair, DB has already paid out $1.5 billion as part of the program.

The decision reverses pronouncements by the bank and the U.S. Justice Department that some of the funds - part of an overall $7.2 billion settlement over bad mortgage bonds sold before the 2008 crisis - would go to aiding people who were in imminent risk of defaulting on their mortgage payments, have especially high interest rates or owe more on their mortgage than in the value of their home.

The change in plans “may disappoint distressed homeowners and others, including the many individuals who have reached out to the monitor over the past two years, hoping to receive different types of consumer relief from the bank,” Bresnick wrote in the report, which was posted online.

Bresnick, a partner at the law firm Venable LLC and a former U.S. prosecutor, declined to comment for this article. The Justice Department didn’t have an immediate comment.

The bank rationalized its decision by saying the "most effective" form of consumer relief would be to provide loans to consumers so they can purchase homes (though, presumably, those distressed consumers wouldn't qualify under the more stringent lending standards of the modern era).

The decision reverses pronouncements by the bank and the U.S. Justice Department that some of the funds - part of an overall $7.2 billion settlement over bad mortgage bonds sold before the 2008 crisis - would go to aiding people who were in imminent risk of defaulting on their mortgage payments, have especially high interest rates or owe more on their mortgage than in the value of their home.

The change in plans “may disappoint distressed homeowners and others, including the many individuals who have reached out to the monitor over the past two years, hoping to receive different types of consumer relief from the bank,” Bresnick wrote in the report, which was posted online.

Bresnick, a partner at the law firm Venable LLC and a former U.S. prosecutor, declined to comment for this article. The Justice Department didn’t have an immediate comment.

Unlike other bank settlements from the Obama era, DB's settlement didn't require the bank to spend the money on consumer relief; instead, DOJ and DB had what amounted to a handshake agreement. The money earmarked for consumer relief wasn't specifically earmarked for loan modifications, which means the bank is free to use it for loans at its discretion. By comparison, similar settlements reached during the Trump era haven't required money be set aside to help consumers.

Earlier monitor reports said the bank was planning to offer loan relief and had entered into financing arrangements with two companies specializing in modifications.

"The bank now has declined to pursue these options for relief," the latest monitor report said. "It will not, after all, help any underwater homeowner by forgiving a portion of the principal owed on a mortgage, offer forbearance to any homeowner finding it difficult to make a monthly mortgage payment, or provide any of the other relief addressed in the monitor’s prior report."

The settlement - which initial reports suggested could be as high as $14 billion - instead required the bank to pay a roughly $3 billion fine and offer the $4 billion for consumer relief. But rest assured, the bank's new Democratic overlords on the House Financial Services Committee likely won't forget this.

DIA: China to Deploy ASAT Laser by 2020

China's military is expected to deploy a laser weapon capable of destroying or damaging U.S. military satellites in low earth orbit in the next year, the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency disclosed in a report on space threats. The Chinese directed energy weapon is among an array of space warfare tools that include ground-based anti-satellite (ASAT) missiles, electronic jammers, cyber attacks, and small satellites Beijing plans to use in attacks on U.S. satellites in a future conflict. "China likely is pursuing laser weapons to disrupt, degrade, or damage satellites and their sensors and possibly already has a limited capability to employ laser systems against satellite sensors," the unclassified intelligence report said. "China likely will field a ground-based laser weapon that can counter low-orbit space-based sensors by 2020, and by the mid-to-late 2020s, it may field higher power systems that extend the threat to the structures of non-optical satellites."

It was the first time a U.S. intelligence agency disclosed details of the ASAT laser deployment plans. China's ASAT laser weapons have been known since at least 2006, when China used a ground based laser to "dazzle" an orbiting U.S. satellite in what was viewed as a test attack. The laser incident came a year before the 2007 Chinese ASAT missile test against an orbiting weather satellite that created a dangerous orbiting debris field. China plans to use high-energy ground-based lasers in a future war to disrupt Global Positioning System satellites that provide pinpoint targeting of U.S. missiles.

In addition to lasers, China has worked on other directed energy arms, including high-powered microwave, radio frequency, railgun, and particle beam weapons. Lasers are regarded as ideal ASAT weapons because their effects can be more easily masked. A high energy laser beam can destroy electro-optical detectors, optical systems, control surfaces, solar panels, and other satellite components. An intense laser strike of 300 watts per square centimeter can melt the surface of satellite optical glass and cause optics to fail. Ground-based lasers are believed to have a range of between 310 miles and 620 miles and require an average power greater than 1,000 watts.

Lower powered lasers are used to interfere or temporarily blind satellite optical sensors, and can also interfere or blind infrared detectors on early warning satellites used to detect missile launches, and the electro-optical transducers on electro-optical reconnaissance satellites. The Pentagon intelligence agency also outlined space threats posed by Russia, North Korea, and Iran that along with China were identified as states that regard attacks against U.S. satellites as warfighting capabilities designed to counter precision targeting of American weapons and their communications and intelligence links. The four enemies also could detonate nuclear weapons in space to destroy satellites and conduct air or missile strikes against satellite ground control stations, the report said. "China and Russia, in particular, have taken steps to challenge the United States," the report said, noting military doctrines of both states' militaries regard satellite attacks "as a means to reduce U.S. and allied military effectiveness."

If it kills you why does anyone take it? This makes no sense!
It's like heroin except many times stronger. People are taking their normal sized doses without awareness of the high potency.

Big U.S. exchanges to sue SEC over 'overreaching' fee experiment

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The three largest U.S. stock exchange operators said they will sue the Securities and Exchange Commission for overstepping its authority by ordering a pilot program to test banning lucrative payments exchanges make to brokers for resting stock orders.

"We disagree with the government overreach, and this really represents an unprecedented attempt by the SEC to distort the free market mechanisms that govern the competition among trading venues," Michael Blaugrund, head of transactions at NYSE, told reporters in New York on Friday.

Intercontinental Exchange Inc's NYSE, Nasdaq Inc, and Cboe Global Markets, which together operate 13 of the 14 U.S. stock exchanges, each filed separate notices that they intend to sue the SEC. At issue is a pilot program the regulator approved in December that will restrict the amount exchanges can charge for stock trade executions, as well as the rebates exchanges pay brokers for orders that others can trade against, for one to two years.

The program aims to shed light on whether rebate payments, collectively around $2.5 billion last year, create conflicts of interest by incentivizing brokers to send customer orders to the exchanges that pay the biggest rebates rather than to those that would obtain the best results for the end clients.

The exchanges argue rebates are needed to compensate brokers for providing liquidity and that the SEC has not shown that they harm the market.

"The SEC is required by statute to determine there is a problem, not go on a fact-finding mission," Ed Tilly, chief executive officer of Cboe, said in an interview on Feb. 8.

Cboe, Nasdaq, and NYSE vigorously opposed the pilot when it was proposed early last year.

They argued it would create winners and losers, as private stock trading venues, which execute around 40 percent of U.S. stock transactions, would not be subject to the restrictions, giving them a competitive advantage. They also said bid-ask spreads would widen without rebates, creating hundreds of millions of dollars in new costs for investors.

The pilot was expected to begin later this year, but NYSE said it will request a delay while it pursues its lawsuit.

The SEC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"It's a very difficult decision to decide to take your primary regulator to court," said NYSE's Blaugrund. "That being said, we feel this is overreaching, and we need to draw a clear line in the sand."

Video: Police Officer Shoots Knife-Wielding ISIS Terrorist

Newly released bodycam footage shows a police officer shooting an ISIS terrorist who was approaching him while holding a knife.

The shooting happened on Jan. 7 outside a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office substation in Fountain Hills, Arizona.

Sgt. Brandon Wells shot Ismail Hamed, 18, shortly after Hamed called 911 and said he was part of ISIS, the notorious Islamic terror group.

“My name is Ismail Hamed,” the man told an operator, according to one of the 911 call recordings. “I live in Fountain Hills, and I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I just want a cop to come real quick and I want to deal with them.”

During the call, he also said: “I’d like to do something in protest for the people suffering in Palestine and in the Middle East.”

Asked what he wanted to do, he added: “I’d like to talk to them face to face and see what solution they will come up with.”

Wells responded and approached Hamed, asking for his identification. Instead, Hamed hurled rocks at Wells.

Wells took out his firearm and ordered Hamed to back off but, instead, the teenager pulled out a knife and walked toward the deputy.

Wells told Hamed he would shoot if Hamed kept coming towards him. “Shoot me,” Hamed said, continuing to advance.

Wells shot him twice. Hamed survived and is currently in custody in a Maricopa County jail.

CITI MAY LIQUIDATE $1BILLION (Gorillion!) IN VENZUELAN GOLD WITHING WEEKS

Back in April 2015, when Venezuela still had a somewhat functioning economy and hyperinflation was not yet rampant, the cash-strapped country quietly conducted a little-noticed gold-for-cash swap with Citigroup as part of which president Nicolas Maduro converted part of his nation's gold reserves into at least $1 billion in cash through a swap with Citibank.

As Reuters reported then, the deal would make more foreign currency available to President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government as the OPEC nation struggled with soaring consumer prices, chronic shortages and a shrinking economy worsened by low oil prices.

As Reuters further added: "former central bank director Jose Guerra and economist Asdrubal Oliveros of Caracas-based consultancy Ecoanalitica said in separate interviews that the operation had been carried out. A source at the central bank told Reuters last month it would provide 1.4 million troy ounces of gold in exchange for cash. Venezuela would have to pay interest on the funds, but the bank would most likely be able to maintain the gold as part of its foreign currency reserves."

Needless to say, the socialist country's economic situation is orders of magnitude worse now, and in addition to a full-blown blockade of the country's only key export, petroleum, the president has a simmering, US-backed coup to contend with as well.

Fast forward three years when Venezuela's gold swap with Citi is about to mature, and according to lawmaker Angel Alvarado, advisor to Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed president, Juan Guaido, Citi would
be entitled to keep the gold if cash-strapped Venezuela does not pay the loan when it expires in March. Considering the country's financial dire straits, the last thing Venezuela can afford is to pay Citi to reclaim ownership of the collateral.

As a result, on Friday, Guaido's advisors asked Citibank not to invoke the guarantee and not to claim the gold put up as collateral for the 2015 loan made to the government of President Nicolas Maduro if his administration does not make payments on time, Reuters reported, citing a Venezuela lawmaker. Opposition leaders have claimed that Maduro usurped power last month when he was sworn in to a second term after a disputed election widely described as a sham.

“Citibank has been asked to stand by and not invoke the guarantee until the end of the usurpation,” Alvarado said in an interview. “We don’t want to lose the gold.”

Confirming what we reported back in 2016, a finance industry source told Reuters that the gold is worth $1.1 billion.

While it is unclear whether Citi will comply with the requests, there is now a non-trivial possibility that the US bank may find itself liquidating over $1 billion in Venezuela bullion in the open market, an operation which could potentially send the price of the precious metal sharply lower.

* * *

Meanwhile, far from pushing to reclaim its gold, Maduro has only been selling more of it, as Abu Dhabi investment firm Noor Capital confirmed when it said earlier this month that it bought 3 tons of gold from Venezuela’s central bank, but would halt further transactions until the country’s situation stabilizes.

Guaido has also asked British authorities to prevent Maduro from gaining access to gold reserves held in the Bank of England, which holds around $1.2 billion in bullion for Maduro’s government. So far the British central bank has refused to comply with Maduro's demands to remit the gold back to Venezuela, although when asked for comment, the BOE said it does not comment on client operations.

Meanwhile, Hugo Chavez, who spent the last years of his life repatriating Venezuela's gold is spinning in his grave.

“Onward Together” Inside Hillary’s Latest Political Tax Scandal

Most people are aware that “Onward Together” is a political organization to raise funds for the Democratic party, but what they don’t realize, is the fact that this tax-exempt 501(c)(4) is operating ILLEGALLY, on multiple levels. IRS laws, FEC documents, and Onward Together’s tax return create one heck of a recipe, burning for an investigation. Not only does Onward Together require scrutiny, it’s partner organizations need a closer look as well.

Perhaps “Back Together” would have been more apropos, since Hillary Clinton got the band back together to form this tax-exempt political scandal. Even Huma Abedin is on the payroll. What’s most interesting is that the DNC paid nearly $2 million to Onward Together for donor list rental/acquisition produced by Hillary for America, while the DCCC paid more than $700,000 for the same list. Sure, politicians often sell “donor lists”, but Onward Together is not allowed to declare the payment as tax-exempt “royalty income,” nor does this political activity align with the lawful purpose of 501(c)(4) organizations. But it gets worse.

The law states:

In order to avoid unrelated business income taxes, some exempt organizations have attempted to classify, as royalties, payments that are in fact fees for services. The IRS, however, ignores contractual nomenclature and looks to the true nature of such transactions. For example, royalties were ruled not to include payments for personal appearances (Rev. Rul. 81-178, 1981-2 C.B. 135) or receipts from the rental of donor lists (Disabled American Veterans v. United States, 650 F.2d 1178 (Ct. Cl. 1981). Additionally, if the exempt organization maintains control over or liability for the commercial enterprise, the royalty exclusion will likely be denied. Thus, payments derived from a license of property under which an exempt organization was liable for some development and operational costs were treated as unrelated income. (Rev. Rul. 69-179, 1969-1 C.B. 158).

Projection much?

Hollywood actor Jim Carrey has lashed out at President Trump, calling him a cancer tumor who likes to rape women.

Speaking at the Vulture Fest panel in Los Angles over the weekend, the anti-Trump star called Trump a “rapist” and likened him to “melanoma.”

Hollywoodreporter.com reports: Carrey called him “incredibly dangerous, a threat to homeland security. And now he has the nerve to come out a couple of days ago and ask for bipartisanship.”

He added, “These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal. A rapist needs to be removed, not negotiated with. These people are raping our system, they’re destroying it right in front of us…. This corrupt Republican congress that was…. These people have to be removed from our system because they’re bad for us. Trump is a melanoma, and anybody that covers for him, including Sarah Sanders, is putting makeup on it. It shows that there’s a deeper problem in this country, and that problem is greed.

Other musings included the revelation that Carrey broke down after Aretha Franklin’s death: “The day Aretha Franklin died I cried that someone so beautiful and so incredibly conscious and someone who’s done so much to lift the spirit of people has to close her eyes on a world like this. It’s a fucking injustice. It shouldn’t happen. I can’t stand it. I can’t take it.”

Speaking out against the Christian right, Carrey added, “I think they’re going to find out once and for all that the Christian right has never been about morality, it’s been about holding on to power and using morality to do so.”

Of his desire for a Beto O’Rourke/Kamala Harris Presidential ticket, Carrey said: “I think she’s fantastic, I think he’s an incredible guy, and I would love to vote in this decade for someone that’s not the lesser of the evils.” (For the record, he thinks Hillary Clinton would be a good president, however, “I believe she knows what she’s doing but the fact that people are conflicted about her, whether it’s right or wrong, is a problem and will lose votes.”)

In addition to the one he posted, Carrey went through several of his other paintings, including one of Mike Pence (“It’s truly the face of insincerity”), one of Donald Trump crucifying Jesus (“I just thought of every…selfish word he said as another nail in the cross of Jesus”), a Halloween drawing of Donald Trump as a cyclops (“To me the right is a cyclops, it sees in [one dimension] — what can I see, what can I have?”), former EPA chief Scott Pruitt (“He’s a vampire and that’s all”) and Rudy Giuliani (“A guy that doesn’t have presence of mind enough to dye the bottom teeth. His mouth is the whole administration in a nutshell”).

He also discussed his painting of Colin Kaepernick that commended Nike for supporting the former pro football player. “I wanted to encourage an act of goodness,” Carrey explained, saying he didn’t necessarily mean to endorse Nike’s business practices. “We have to encourage goodness, that’s how we get more goodness.”

He continued, “The African-American community has incredible grace in the face of this cancerous hate. They’re unbelievable. I don’t know how they haven’t burned this country down.”

Rockefeller, Big Pharma Facing $1 Billion Lawsuit for Intentionally Infecting People With Syphilis

A federal judge recently approved a $1 billion lawsuit against Johns Hopkins University, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (BMY.N) and the Rockefeller Foundation. The lawsuit is seeking restitution for victims who were intentionally infected with syphilis during government experiments in Guatemala during the 1940s.

Hundreds of Guatemalans were reportedly infected with syphilis during the studies, which were designed to test the ability of penicillin to treat sexually transmitted diseases. The lawsuit was pending and waiting in limbo for the past four years until it was finally approved by U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang last month. In 2015, when the lawsuit was originally filed, there were 750 victims seeking restitution, now there are only 444 plaintiffs and some remaining relatives.

The test subjects in the experiments were mainly children, orphans, patients from mental hospitals and inmates.

The horrific studies remained a secret until 2010 when Dr. Susan Reverby of Wellesley College in Massachusetts uncovered details of the experiment, forcing a formal apology from then President Barack Obama.

Reverby learned of the experiments after the death of John Charles Cutler, one of the lead researchers in the study. Cutler left behind a stack of files which contained details of the barbaric experiments.

When the story went public, the Meridian 361 International Law Group issued a very graphic description of the experiments in a press release announcing the lawsuit. According to the press release:

The details of the experiments were deliberately hidden from the world, and remained so until the Commission published its report in September 2011, confirming that barbaric human experiments constituting human rights violations occurred, for example: prostitutes were infected with venereal disease and then provided for sex to subjects for intentional transmission of the disease; subjects were inoculated by injection of syphilis spirochetes into the spinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, under the skin, and on mucous membranes; an emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea was spread under the foreskin of the penis in male subjects; the penis of male subjects was scraped or scarified and then coated with the emulsion containing syphilis or gonorrhea; a woman from the psychiatric hospital was injected with syphilis, developed skin lesions and wasting, and then had gonorrheal pus from a male subject injected into both of her eyes. Many of the Guatemalans developed venereal disease. Most were never treated.

Kamala Harris protected pedophilles in the Catholic Church

District Attorney Kamala Harris possesses San Francisco Archdiocese files containing details of how the church dealt with pedophile priests that go back as far as 80 years. But Harris, the frontrunner in the June primary elections to become the Democratic candidate for California attorney general, has for five years rebuffed reporters' efforts to view those files, despite statements by former DA Terence Hallinan saying they should be released.

For the past six weeks, SF Weekly has asked Harris' office to comply with the request under the California Public Records Act. It has released nothing.

On April 21, just as controversy was heating up over the Vatican's role in the global sex abuse scandal, Harris' deputy, Paul Henderson, responded to my request by stating that Harris' investigative files were not subject to California's government transparency laws; her office essentially enjoys a blanket secrecy privilege.

I sent Henderson's arguments to California Newspaper Publishers Association legal counsel Jim Ewert. "That's flatly untrue," he said. The District Attorney's office "can release them if they want to. But they have decided not to."

I wrote to Harris' office citing Ewert's analysis. Harris' spokeswoman, Erica Derryck, changed course, saying they would retrieve and review the files to determine whether there were any I could view. Following half a dozen phone conversations and as many e-mail exchanges, Derryck said she would contact me on May 24, but I didn't hear from her. When I e-mailed and called her again, almost seven weeks after my initial request, she said she was still working on it. I have heard nothing more.

In lieu of releasing records, Harris' office ended up releasing a statement: "District Attorney Harris focuses her efforts on putting child molesters in prison. We're not interested in selling out our victims to look good in the paper. When this case was brought under Terence Hallinan, prosecutors took the utmost care to protect the identity and dignity of the victims. That was the right thing to do then and it's the right thing to do now."

This sort of statement drives abuse victims crazy. Joelle Casteix, western regional director of SNAP, was sexually abused as a child by a lay teacher at a Catholic school. She had to sue to obtain records pertaining to the incidents. She rejects Harris' rationale for keeping archdiocese abuse records secret. It's possible, even routine, to release records about pedophile priests while protecting the names of victims, Casteix explained.

A former top assistant to the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of Florida is denying any wrongdoing regarding a plea deal for billionaire and accused child-predator Jeffrey Epstein.

Jeffrey Sloman, now in private practice, was the top deputy to Alex Acosta, the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of Florida in 2007, when the attorney’s office secured the controversial 2007 plea deal with Epstein.

Sloman was appointed to Acosta’s U.S. attorney seat by President Barack Obama in 2009. Acosta is currently the U.S. Secretary of Labor.

In a Feb. 15 op-ed published in the Miami Herald, Sloman asserted that Acosta “acted with professionalism and integrity in handling the Jeffrey Epstein case,” and that allegations that Acosta was somehow corrupted by Epstein’s dream team of lawyers are untrue.

After more than a decade, the Epstein case has reemerged as a subject of national intrigue as well as outrage.

Epstein, a 66-year-old former hedge fund manager, has been accused of operating an international child sex ring at his Palm Beach, Florida, mansion and 72-acre private island estate in the Caribbean.

According to reports, he allegedly used human-trafficking recruiters to coerce more than 100 underage girls—many of them as young as 14 years old—into performing sex acts with him and many of his Palm Beach and island guests.

The girls were alleged to have often been transported from the United States to his island estate on his private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express” in the media.

On Feb. 6, at the behest of Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) opened an investigation into possible professional misconduct that allowed Epstein to serve only 13 months in a private area of the Palm Beach County jail and leave the facility for 12 hours a day, six days a week, to work unsupervised at his downtown West Palm Beach office.

“Jeffrey Epstein is a child rapist and there’s not a single mom or dad in America who shouldn’t be horrified by the fact that he received a pathetically soft sentence,” Sasse said in a statement following the DOJ announcement.

Sloman’s op-ed offers a defense of the Epstein plea arrangement and marks the first public response by members of the prosecutorial team whose efforts are now under federal investigation.

“In the late 2000s, I worked as Alex’s second-in-command,” Sloman acknowledged before pointing to local state-level prosecutors.

“The Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office, was going to allow [Epstein] to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and merely pay a fine. The local police rightly were outraged and brought the facts to us,” said Sloman.

“After reviewing the case, we were appalled. Stunningly, the local prosecutors’ resolution had not even acknowledged that Epstein engaged in abhorrent sex acts with scores of children,” he continued.

Sloman then explained that federal prosecutors ran into significant difficulties when many of Epstein’s victims were too terrified to cooperate against him. He also claimed that Acosta’s hands were legally tied due to “what was, at heart, a local sex abuse case.”

Keeping to the twin objectives of protecting Epstein’s minor-aged victims from further trauma and ensuring a collective path to civil court compensation, Sloman said he and his colleagues proposed a plea offer requiring Epstein to the following: plead guilty to a state-level felony, agree to 18 months in jail, register as a sex offender, and pay his known victims between $150,000 and $250,000.

“We told Epstein that unless he and the local authorities accepted our demands, we would indict and try him on federal charges. They agreed, and we did not pursue a federal case,” Sloman said. His op-ed also serves as a rebuttal to the Miami Herald’s exhaustive three-part investigative series, “Perversion of Justice.”

The series, published Nov. 28, opens with a speculative salvo against Acosta, and was quoted at length by Sen. Sasse in a Jan. 15 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which Sasse pressed newly confirmed U.S. Attorney General William Barr to investigate the plea deal, which the newspaper called “the deal of a lifetime.”

“If I’m confirmed, I’ll make sure your questions are answered,” said Barr.

Facing life in prison if convicted on human trafficking charges, Epstein assembled an elite team of lawyers, including Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, who worked on the O.J. Simpson murder trial, Jay Lefkowitz, Gerald Lefcourt, Jack Goldberger, Roy Black, Guy Lewis, and former special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, who investigated Bill Clinton’s infamous affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

In addition to Epstein’s light jail sentence, the final plea agreement allowed him to maintain that he was unaware that any of the girls he molested were under age 18.

Those that protect Pedos ought receive the exact same penalty as the Pedo found guilty.
I vote the punishment should be lead therapy, for both.

Why Should We Care About Qatar’s Influence?
David Reaboi

February 16, 2019

For a half-century, Qatar has been a tiny, desert oasis for the Muslim Brotherhood and many of the world’s most virulent Islamists. In the 1960s, Gamel Abdel Nasser once again banned and cracked-down on the Brotherhood in Egypt, forcing thousands of the group’s agitators, clerics and community organizers to retreat elsewhere into the Middle East, Europe, and North America.

Since then, the Arabian Gulf emirate of Qatar has been the Brotherhood’s most hospitable base of operations. In time, Brotherhood Islamism would soon emerge as Qatar’s de-facto state ideology, as the ruling al-Thani family welcomed the Islamists with lavish funding, the highest state honors, and the establishment of new Islamist institutions that would indoctrinate thousands.

Qatar has also been exceptionally successful at buying and obtaining influence to advance its interests in Washington. The extent of its influence and information operations is one of the least-covered and least-scrutinized stories of the last few years but, thankfully, that’s changing. Because of its promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood and its alliance with Iran, more and more American are coming to understand that Qatar is a malign force—not just in the Middle East but in this country, as well.

Of course, spending a lot of money is the easiest way to change or tweak a public policy narrative. Having great wealth allows you to gain friends instantly, in the hope that your generosity will enrich these new friends as well. Nations spend a lot of money in the United States to advance their interests; rich nations, of course, can afford to spend more lavishly.

But not every foreign dollar spent on making a nation’s voice heard inside the Beltway is equal: there are a number of pro-American allies that advance a policy agenda that aligns with U.S. national security and economic interests.

There are, on the other hand, countries that pay enormous sums of money to influence American policy againstour interests. The policies these nations pursue can do real harm to our country’s welfare, both here and abroad. Because of its position with respect to terrorism, its alliance with Iran and Sunni Islamism, the millions of dollars Qatar has spent trying to influence perceptions and policies here in Washington falls squarely into this latter, more dangerous category.

Ex-FBI Lawyer James Baker Testified Two Cabinet Members “Ready to Support” 25th Amendment Coup Against Trump

Former FBI lawyer James Baker testified to Congress in October that he was told that DAG Rod Rosenstein said two Trump cabinet members were “ready to support” removing President Trump via the 25th Amendment.

James Baker gave two testimonies to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees in October in an unclassified setting and the transcripts of his testimonies still have not been released to the public; only excerpts of his testimonies have been leaked to the media.

Fox News has confirmed the latest portion of James Baker’s testimony, however, according to Fox, Mr. Baker did not identify the two cabinet members.

Mr. Baker said in his testimony that both Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page told him about their conversations with Rod Rosenstein about ousting Trump via the 25th Amendment.

Via Fox News:

“I was being told by some combination of Andy McCabe and Lisa Page, that, in a conversation with the Deputy Attorney General, he had stated that he — this was what was related to me — that he had at least two members of the president’s Cabinet who were ready to support, I guess you would call it, an action under the 25th Amendment,” Baker told the committees.

Fox News requested further comment from the parties involved. Lawyers for Baker and McCabe declined comment, as did an FBI spokesperson.

In his testimony, Baker said of McCabe’s state of mind: “At this point in time, Andy was unbelievably focused and unbelievably confident and squared away. I don’t know how to describe it other than I was extremely proud to be around him at that point in time because I thought he was doing an excellent job at maintaining focus and dealing with a very uncertain and difficult situation. So I think he was in a good state of mind at this point in time.”

The New York Times first reported on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s plot to wear a wire and oust Trump with the 25th Amendment.

DAG Rosenstein began plotting Trump’s removal shortly after FBI Director Comey was fired, The New York Times reported in September, citing memos penned by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Rosenstein fought back and said the New York Times report is inaccurate; the DOJ also released a statement last week reiterating Rosenstein’s denial he was plotting a coup against the president.

“The deputy attorney general never authorized any recording that Mr. McCabe references. As the deputy attorney general previously has stated, based on his personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment, nor was the DAG in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment,” a DOJ spox said last week in a statement.

According to Fox News, James Baker testified that he was not directly involved in the May 2017 coup discussions, however he maintains that Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe approached him immediately after their meeting with Rod Rosenstein just days after Comey was fired by Trump.

Hillary Refuses To Answer Question On 2020 Run

Hillary Clinton refused to answer questions from reporters Friday about whether she plans to run for president in 2020.

Clinton was attending the funeral for former Democratic Michigan Rep. John Dingell, who passed away Feb. 7. Video shows reporters asking Clinton about Dingell’s legacy before moving on to the topic of her long-rumored 2020 run.

“Secretary Clinton, one other question for you about 2020,” the reporter says, to which Clinton laughs. “Are you — what do you think of the candidates? Are you happy?” (RELATED: Should Hillary Run In 2020?)

The second reporter then interjects, asking, “Are you going to run?”

Clinton puts off the question, saying, “We’ve got — we’ve got to think about John Dingell and his legacy.”

Clinton has cultivated mystery around her possible candidacy since 2018. Clinton associate Mark Penn published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal in November 2018 claiming Clinton would almost certainly run again.

“Do not underestimate Hillary’s positioning to run again,” Penn said on Fox News days after publishing the op-ed. “Clintons never stop until they get where they want to go.”

“Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle — back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994,” he wrote.

Not all Clinton acolytes are so confident, however. Advisor Philippe Reines put the chances of her running “somewhere between highly unlikely and zero … but it’s not zero.”

Democrats have spent 2 years attacking anyone who dare raise questions about the foundation of the Mueller investigation.
And now they say they’ll keep investigating if Mueller doesn’t find what they want.
Amazing.

Weiner's Zipper's Been Unzipped

Convicted ex-congressman Anthony Weiner has been sprung from prison — and is now part of a federal re-entry program in New York, records show.

Weiner has been transferred from Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass. where he served a bulk of his 21-month sentence for sexting a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons records.

The 54-year-old is now being supervised by the federal Residential Reentry Management, which has a field office in Sunset Park, and is either in a halfway house or in home confinement, TMZ reported. It’s not clear when the transfer took place.

Weiner is set to be released from federal custody on May 14, thanks to good conduct behind bars that shaved about three months off his sentence.

He’ll spend three years on supervised release and will have to pay a $10,000 fine as well as register as a sex offender.

The once-rising Democrat flamed out amid a series of sexting scandals that first began in 2011, when he resigned from Congress after admitting to sending an X-rated photo and engaging in inappropriate relationships with women online.

Two years later, his comeback bid to become New York City’s mayor was torpedoed by revelations he sexted with another woman under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.”

The pol’s lewd behavior took a more disturbing turn, however, when he was busted in 2017 for sexting with a high school girl — despite knowing she was underage.

Weiner wept at his sentencing, calling himself a “very sick man.”

Huma Abedin, his wife and mother of their young son, filed for divorce just hours after he pleaded guilty but she later withdrew the case to settle matters out of court.

Dianne Feinstein and her husband:

2007: Billions in Military Contracts to Husband’s Firms Were Approved by Sen. Feinstein’s Committee, Metro Newspapers Investigation Reports

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband was a major beneficiary of military appropriations blessed by a subcommittee that she headed, Metro Newspapers reports this week.

Feinstein (D-Calif.) acted in apparent conflict of interest while approving billions of dollars in military construction expenditures, according to an investigative story by award-winning journalist Peter Byrne. The story was published jointly in the North Bay Bohemian and Metro Silicon Valley weekly newspapers this week.

https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20070125006150/en/Billions-Military-Contracts-Husbands-Firms-Approved-Sen.

2009: On the day the new Congress convened this year, Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband’s real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/21/senate-husbands-firm-cashes-in-on-crisis/

2013: U.S. Sen. Diane Feinstein’s husband Richard Blum, won the first phase construction contract for California’s high-speed rail.

The Perini-Zachary-Parsons bid was the lowest received from the five consortia participating in the bidding process, but “low” is a relative term,” the Laer Pearce, author of Crazifornia wrote. “The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile

AND FINALLY….

2018: Dianne Feinstein’s Husband Wins Near-Billion Dollar California ‘High Speed Rail’ Contract

a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Nancy Pelosi’s Brother’s Company Received $737 Million from Obama’s Energy Dept.

February 15, 2019 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US

Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law, Ron Pelosi, received a whopping $737 million dollars from Obama’s energy department in 2011, when Nancy was House Minority leader.

To understand the greed of the Democrats and how they are likely to personally profit from the Green New Deal, we only have to look back to the Obama administration, the $3 trillion in “stimulus” money, the green movement, and how it massively enriched Democrats, their donors, and Nancy Pelosi in particular.
