I really do hope they take a serious whack at Trump and act to try taking him down (I don't mean silly hearings and investigations, I mean action). If America doesn't rise up against the Bolsheviks then, at that point, we're through and there is no MAGA!

US federal court exposes Democratic Party conspiracy against Assange and WikiLeaks

In a ruling published late Tuesday, Judge John Koeltl of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York delivered a devastating blow to the US-led conspiracy against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

In his ruling, Judge Koeltl, a Bill Clinton nominee and former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, dismissed “with prejudice” a civil lawsuit filed in April 2018 by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) alleging WikiLeaks was civilly liable for conspiring with the Russian government to steal DNC emails and data and leak them to the public.

Jennifer Robinson, a leading lawyer for Assange, and other WikiLeaks attorneys welcomed the ruling as “an important win for free speech.”

The decision exposes the Democratic Party in a conspiracy of its own to attack free speech and cover up the crimes of US imperialism and the corrupt activities of the two parties of Wall Street. Judge Koeltl stated:

If WikiLeaks could be held liable for publishing documents concerning the DNC’s political financial and voter-engagement strategies simply because the DNC labels them ‘secret’ and trade secrets, then so could any newspaper or other media outlet. But that would impermissibly elevate a purely private privacy interest to override the First Amendment interest in the publication of matters of the highest public concern. The DNC’s published internal communications allowed the American electorate to look behind the curtain of one of the two major political parties in the United States during a presidential election. This type of information is plainly of the type entitled to the strongest protection that the First Amendment offers.

The ruling exposes the illegality of the conspiracy by the US government, backed by the governments of Britain, Ecuador, Australia and Sweden and the entire corporate media and political establishment, to extradite Assange to the US, where he faces 175 years in federal prison on charges including espionage.

The plaintiff in the civil case—the Democratic Party—has also served as Assange’s chief prosecutor within the state apparatus for over a decade. During the Obama administration, Democratic Party Justice Department officials, as well as career Democratic holdovers under the Trump administration, prepared the criminal case against him.

Leading LGBT-people in Pride Community convicted for child molestation

As the Pride festival in Stockholm continues, it has turned out that several leading persons in the organisation have been convicted for sexual crimes. Rape, child pornography and grooming against under-aged boys and girls are listed among the crimes carried out by men as well as women.

It is the Christian news site Världen idag which has examined cases of child molestation within the Swedish LGBT community. The Pride organisation’s press department does not want to respond to questions from the news site since it considers that the questions “are incorrectly asked”.

Here is a list:

39-year-old man – convicted for rape
For several years, the man has participated in seminars and exhibitions at Stockholm Pride. In June, he was convicted to three years and nine months in prison for child rape, gross abuse of child for sexual posing, sexual harassment and severe child pornography crimes.
The man, who was involved in the Swedish Medical Association and complained about homophobic attitudes in the world of medicine, met the boy he molested at the Internet dating site Cruiser. He is also sentenced to pay SEK 165,000 (€15,000) to his victim.

40-year-old woman – child pornography
The woman took images of children’s genitals in their home environments and transferred the pictures to a network of paedophiles. She was one in a group of molesters who were simultaneously convicted and the woman was sentenced to eight months in prison for child pornography crimes.
Earlier, she was one of the front figures for women’s rights for insemination and told a Swedish newspaper that she intended to go to Denmark with her partner for insemination.

40-year old man – convicted for child rape
Previous to last year’s Pride festival, two senior managers in the Pride organisation resigned. It turned out that one of them had been sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for the rape against an under-aged child, some years before. The other man was accused of sex purchase from an under-aged boy.
Stockholm Pride was aware of the two cases but the managers were not dismissed until the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter wrote about it in late 2017. It turned out that employees at Stockholm Pride knew about the rape sentence of the 40-year-old, without reacting. The charges of sex purchase facing the second manager were dropped since the boy victim did not want to participate in the investigation.

42-year-old man, convicted for child pornography
In 2016, one of the front figures for Luleå Pride was convicted to probation with defined treatment plan for severe child pornography crimes, found in the man’s computer. Before, the man was employed at the Region of Norrbotten and worked as a project manager for equality and diversity.

44-year-old man – convicted for child molestation
The man, a school leader and connected to the Swedish governmental organisation for sexual enlightening, RFSU, was three weeks ago convicted to two years and six months by Stockholm district court for 21 sexual abuses against children.

I haven't seen this story anywhere:


FBI Raids LA Water and Power Offices

https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/07/22/fbi-raids-ladwp-offices-in-downtown-la/

gents served the warrants before 10 a.m. at two different locations: the LADWP headquarters at 111 N Hope St., as well as City Hall. Video footage showed at least three agents entering the LADWP building.

An FBI spokesperson confirmed to CBS2 that agents were serving the search warrants under a sealed affidavit and would not comment on the nature of the investigation.

No arrests were planned, the FBI said.

“The affidavit in support of the search warrant has been sealed by the court and so I am prohibited from commenting on the nature of the investigation,” the spokesperson said.

LADWP is the largest municipal utility in the U.S., serving more than four million residents.

Last November, the FBI raided L.A. City Councilman Jose Huizar’s office and home as part of its investigation into possible bribery, extortion and money laundering at L.A. City Hall focusing on huge real estate investments from Chinese companies.

It’s unclear if Monday’s raids are linked to that case. Huizar has yet to be charged. He has also not resigned. He remains on the city council until his term expires in 2020.

All I got was, "sorry, that page doesn't exist"

What was it?
Just click the triangle in the posted pic and it should play. It's a dumb yet interesting skit with Bill, Hillary, Kevin Spacey and some weird stuff about Bill wearing pajama bottoms in the oval office.

It doesn't play. Twitshit vids will never play on any internet connected device I've ever used.
I've searched for info on why they don't play, but have never been able to find anything that fixes it.
....but I got "page doesn't exist" when trying to open the link that was posted with the vid.

Three JPMorgan Traders Charged For “Massive” Gold Market Manipulation Fraud
Posted by Zero Hedge
Three JPMorgan Traders Charged For “Massive” Gold Market Manipulation Fraud

Many readers wrote us off as conspiracy theorists when we reported on signs of manipulation in the precious metals market. But as it turns out, trading desks at some of the world’s largest banks were deeply involved in what the Department of Justice described as a “massive, multiyear scheme to manipulate the market for precious metals futures contracts and defraud market participants.”
In an indictment unsealed on Monday morning, the DoJ charged Michael Nowak, a JP Morgan veteran and former head of its precious metals trading desk and Gregg Smith, another trader on JPM’s metals desk, in the probe. Both men were put on leave over the summer as the DoJ’s investigation neared its conclusion, and Nowak was previously named in a civil suit brought by the CFTC.

A third trader named in the indictment, Christopher Jordan, traded precious metals at JPM until he left in December 2009. He later traded precious metals at two other banks, Credit Suisse and First New York.
In a press release accompanying the indictment, Assistant Attorney General accused all three men of scheming to manipulate the precious metals market while potentially harming their bank’s clients.
“The defendants and others allegedly engaged in a massive, multiyear scheme to manipulate the market for precious metals futures contracts and defraud market participants,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski. “These charges should leave no doubt that the Department is committed to prosecuting those who undermine the investing public’s trust in the integrity of our commodities markets.”​
William Sweeney, the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office, added that this manipulation likely impacted “correlated markets and the clients of the bank they represented.”
“Smith, Nowak, Jordan, and their co-conspirators allegedly engaged in a complex scheme to trade precious metals in a way that negatively affected the natural balance of supply-and-demand,” said FBI Assistant Director in Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. of the FBI’s New York Field Office. “Not only did their alleged behavior affect the markets for precious metals, but also correlated markets and the clients of the bank they represented. For as long as we continue to see this type of illegal activity in the marketplace, we’ll remain dedicated to investigating and bringing to justice those who perpetrate these crimes.”
According to Bloomberg, three other banks – Deutsche Bank, HSBC and UBS – agreed to pay $50 million (in total) to settle civil claims by the CFTC. Two former JPM employees who pleaded guilty and contributed evidence against their former colleagues that was used in the indictment.
“While at JPMorgan I was instructed by supervisors and more senior traders to trade in a certain fashion, namely to place orders that I intended to cancel before execution,” said one former trader John Edmonds during an October 2018 hearing after pleading guilty to commodities fraud and conspiracy, BBG reports.
The behavior dates back more than 10 years to 2009, according to chat logs that were shown in the indictment. The conversations exposed in the chat logs show just how blatant the manipulation was, and how little the traders did to conceal it.

One of the traders who participated in the chat shown above was Christian Trunz, who traded precious metals at Bearn Stearns before joining JP Morgan after the crisis. He told a federal judge last month that this type of behavior was openly encouraged on JPM’s trading desks for roughly a decade, and that other traders taught him how to do it. He pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges on Aug. 20, BBG reports.
Another trader said during a plea hearing that he was instructed to bid up the price of futures contracts by placing, then cancelling, bid orders (the literal definition of spoofing) that he never intended to fill.
“I was instructed that if a client wished to sell futures I should simultaneously place both bids and offers with the intent of canceling the bids prior to execution,”Edmonds said during his plea hearing.
Edmonds said the purpose was to falsely transmit liquidity and price information in order to deceive other market participants about the supply and demand so they would trade against the orders that JPMorgan wanted to execute.
“We created market activity which artificially drove the sale price up and induced other market participants to purchase at an inflated price,” he said. Edmonds entered into a cooperation agreement with the CFTC in July.​
Since the crisis, regulators around the world have cracked down on manipulation in rates, forex and government bond markets, so it’s not exactly a surprise that this type of behavior was also happening in precious metals. But the brazenness with which traders engaged in such manipulation suggests that they didn’t know what they were doing was illegal or wrong, which, in at least some cases, is probably true.

This must be a mistake. SURELY they were doing this to benefit depositors...no?
What does it matter? A few people will pay a few fines, the banks my or may not pay heftier fines but they spirit money out of thin air anyway so no pain there, and life will go on unchanged for the rest of us and we'll continue to take the pipe from the Big Banks.

It's getting to be like if you're NOT involved in some kind of scandal these days you're not trying hard enough.

Criminals, traitors, feminazis, trannies, pedophiles, SJWs, politicians and so many more degenerate cork soakers....This society has gone to shit.
