As I have said before, I don't always agree with articles I post. I do think it's important to know what others around the US and globe are saying. I believe the people who come here are smart enough to use discernment when reading news articles.
I search the news wires from all over, in hopes to find news that gives us a better understanding of the world we live in. Our MSM just spoon feeds us what they want us to know/think.
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to come here and catch up.

President Trump has told confidants he wants Herman Cain on the Federal Reserve board, but will wait until his background check is completed before making the formal announcement, according to two senior administration officials familiar with the decision. www.axios.com/trump-wants-herman-cain-federal-reserve-4b497361-d12a-4c5a-a2db-28ffe1d36b58.html Trump set to appoint Herman Cain to Fed, pending clearance check: report President Donald Trump has decided to appoint former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain to a seat on the Federal Reserve Board, according to a report by Axios. The report, which quotes two senior administration officials, said Trump will wait until the background check is completed before making the formal announcement. Trump's interest in selecting Cain for the Fed was first reported in January. The president has been sharply critical of the Fed's interest-rate policy. Trump has said he will appoint Stephen Moore to the Fed, but the White House has yet to send the nomination to the Senate. Moore and Cain would fill the two remaining vacancies on the Fed's seven-member board. www.marketwatch.com/story/trump-set-to-appoint-herman-cain-to-fed-pending-clearance-check-report-2019-04-04
What was President Trump up to when he publicly attacked the work of Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller? The answer lay in Trump's longtime habit of operating on two levels. On the surface, Trump sets off controversies, often using Twitter to say something outrageous that sets the media agenda and leaves some commentators with their hair on fire. At the same time, below the surface, Trump is actually taking steps to get a particular job done. That was true with the Russia probe. For public consumption, Trump was denouncing Mueller and trashing his team. Behind the scenes, Trump was cooperating and making sure his staff did the same. The Trump White House offered everyone (except, of course, the president himself) to be interviewed, and reams and reams of documents that other White Houses might have withheld on the grounds of executive or other privilege. So Trump simultaneously attacked and cooperated. www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/byron-york-from-former-trump-lawyer-candid-talk-about-mueller-manafort-sessions-rosenstein-collusion-tweets-privilege-and-the-press
Devin Nunes ups the ante: Two dozen people could be hit by criminal referral -
Anon thoughts: World War III is Brewing in our backyard and the Democrats are cheering it on. George Bush abandoned South America in his quest after nine and one to take out seven Arabic nations and the Russians moved in and now the Chinese. The Monroe Doctrine stated the western hemisphere would never allow any Foreign Entity to dominate And George Bush and Barack Obama let South America turn communist and engage with Iran Russia and China. Now here we are with the war potential he our own backyard. Who do you think all the millions of illegal aliens and the millions of Muslims over 8yrs Obama brought in from Countries we bombed are going to side with? That’s their plan. This is Real. Trump is being Tested. N. Korea is watching.
Brink Of War: Pakistan On High Alert, Indian Military Ready To Strike The situation at the LoC (Line of Control) between India and Pakistan remains critical, as both countries are ready for an all-out conflict, reported Sputnik. "There is a difficult situation with India. We wish for de-escalation and are taking steps for this. The situation like the prime minister [Imran Khan] said remains on alert", Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman Dr. Muhammad Faisal said in a television report earlier this month. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held meetings with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and military commanders, over its "readiness to initiate war against Pakistan," India TV News reported. The Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) discussed war planning strategies against Pakistan, wherein Doval told PM Modi that the Army, Air Force, and Navy are now ready for battle against the neighboring country PM Modi reportedly told military chiefs to minimize collateral damage, and only use surgical strikes in the upcoming fight. Here are the four critical takeaways from the meeting: The attacks will be target-specific No non-military targets Not only Pak-occupied Kashmir, the targets can also be inside Pakistan The attacks will be pro-active, not reactive Sputnik said besides India TV News, there was no direct confirmation of the war planning by the Modi government. Tensions between the two countries soared when a deadly suicide bomb attack allegedly claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e Mohammad struck a convoy of Indian troops in Pulwama on February 14. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, however, maintained that Jaish is not associated with Islamabad. In retaliation to the Pulwama attack, India launched an airstrike on Pakistan's Balakot on February 26. Pakistan retaliated by bombing Indian military installations. The Indian Air Force thwarted the attempt. Tensions have eased in the last few weeks. However, territorial disputes, Pakistan-based jihadist groups waging a hybrid war in India, increasing nuclear stockpiles, and the emergence of militant Hindu nationalism in India mean the next crisis is nearing. The question is when, not if. www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-04/brink-war-pakistan-high-alert-indian-military-ready-strike
Blockade removed? Nuclear Options? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell won approval April 3 for a huge reduction in the amount of time the upper chamber can debate most presidential nominees, from 30 to two hours. McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, had to raise points of order after the Senate voted on cloture motions to limit debate on President Donald Trump’s nominations of Jeffrey Kessler as an assistant secretary of commerce and Roy Altman as a federal district court judge. Both of McConnell’s points of order were each sustained on appeal with simple majorities, 51–48, and the two-hour debate limit was established for sub-cabinet and federal district court judgeship presidential appointments. “Jeffrey Kessler of Virginia was first nominated to serve as assistant secretary of commerce in November of 2017,” McConnell said. “It took seven months before Democrats on the finance committee allowed his nomination to be considered, but when it was, Mr. Kessler was reported out by a unanimous vote. Nobody opposed him on the finance committee. “And the familiar story continues. Another six months of inaction. The nomination was sent back to the White House at the end of the last Congress. So, the process started all over again. “This time, he got a voice vote in the finance committee. Everybody just said ‘aye.’ And yet, here on the floor, inexplicably, it has still required a cloture motion to break through the obstruction and get this unobjectionable nominee—that no one voted against—a vote. “This is not a bad day for the Senate. This is the day we end this outrageous obstruction.” www.theepochtimes.com/mcconnell-led-senate-gop-nukes-democratic-delays-on-most-trump-nominees_2865678.html

Syrian man caught at southern border illegally sneaking into US americanmilitarynews.com/2019/04/syrian-man-caught-at-southern-border-illegally-sneaking-into-us/ U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended a Syrian native attempting to illegally enter the country from Mexico last week. The 46-year-old Syrian man had snuck onto a train car before he was detected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection authorities in Calexico, Calif., on Friday, according to a CBP statement. The train crossed the border in the early morning hours when the port’s imaging technology noticed something unusual in one of the cars. Upon further investigation, officers found the Syrian man hidden inside the railcar’s small external compartment. “This apprehension highlights the fact that none of our inspections are routine, especially when people purposely attempt to avoid the process,” Calexico Area Port Director David Salazar said in the statement. “CBP puts a lot of effort in identifying, vetting and prosecuting people who just don’t want to abide by the legal process of entering our country.” Officers detained the man for an interview and collection of fingerprints. They later discovered he had no documents permitting his U.S. entry, and was instead a Syrian citizen. Officers then charged the man with illegal entry and placed an immigration hold on him to pursue deportation after criminal prosecution has concluded. “CBP officers at the Calexico port of entry have apprehended 12 percent more illegal aliens in fiscal year 2019 compared to the same timeframe in fiscal year 2018 attempting to enter the country hidden in trains; many come from the Northern Triangle region of South America with varied criminal backgrounds such as burglary, battery, and drug charges,” the CBP statement said. The Department of Homeland Security has estimated that approximately one million illegal immigrants will be apprehended by border patrol agents by the end of the year in what is a growing migration crisis in the U.S. “In February, we saw a 30-percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens,” DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said last month. “This is an 80-percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up.” Nielsen and President Donald Trump have been in frequent communication as Trump considers closing the southern border to address the immigration crisis. During a briefing call with the President, a DHS official said, “The system is on wire … We now face what we call a systemwide meltdown.” ADVERTISEMENT DHS has already had to reallocate border patrol agents from ports of entry to working on asylum applications. The move has created significant delays at ports of entry and is expected to have a continued impact on those crossing through.
The Border Is a Hot Mess. What’s Trump to Do? Here Are His Options. Apr 4th, 2019 3 min read COMMENTARY BY James Jay Carafano @jjcarafano Vice President, Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute James Jay Carafano is a leading expert in national security and foreign policy challenges. www.heritage.org/immigration/commentary/the-border-hot-mess-whats-trump-do-here-are-his-options Put yourself in the president’s shoes. He saw the border crisis building. He warned Congress. They did nothing. Now he has to do something. Months ago, the administration alerted lawmakers that the number of people entering the country illegally and making unqualified asylum claims was skyrocketing. The only options were to stop them from crossing or let them in and release them while their bogus claims were being processed. The latter option, Congress was warned, could add another one million to the illegal population before the year was out. It was, by any reasonable definition, a crisis. Get exclusive insider information from Heritage experts delivered straight to your inbox each week. Subscribe to The Agenda >> The White House asked for resources to address it, but Congress didn’t deliver. This led to a government shutdown. Still, lawmakers refused to negotiate, insisting there was no crisis. That assertion is no longer tenable. This week, even Obama’s former secretary of homeland security, Jeh Johnson, acknowledged “it’s a crisis.” Leaders on both sides of the aisle should be in the Oval Office, working into the night until they hammer out a solution. That is not happening. Instead, the House leadership is considering a vote to criticize the administration. With Congress whistling past the graveyard, what is the president to do? He must look for ways to address the overwhelming challenge with the tools at his disposal. He is already trying to build the wall, despite congressional obstructionism. But what else is possible, and how effective would those measures be? Trump has floated four options. Close the border. It would be a dramatic action, but it would not stop the flood of illegal immigrants. They aren’t crossing at the border crossings. And even if the border is officially closed, once they enter the country, their asylum claims will have to be processed all the same. On the other hand, the threat to close the border sends an unmistakable message to Mexico. Sure, it would be economically disruptive, but so is another one million illegal immigrants. While closing the border would hurt the U.S. economically, it would hurt Mexico a lot more. The closure threat clearly translates in Mexico City as “do more.” Trump has gotten Mexico to step up its cooperation in the past, and that may be part of the impetus for talking up closure now. Without knowing exactly what the administration would do and for how long, it might be best to reserve judgment. Everyone, including the president, knows that closing the border is not the final answer. For now, let’s just let the president play poker with Mexico. Cut aid to Central America. As my colleague Ana Quintana wrote, “Foreign aid should never amount to philanthropic handouts or aimless feel-good programs.” Washington shouldn’t be funding anything that’s not working. Some experts claim that cutting aid would cut the programs that help stem illegal immigration. Well, if that’s their purpose, these programs are clearly failing. The number of people coming out of Central America is growing not shrinking. That said, it does not appear that the administration has made a final decision on what it will do. Here is the best advice. We must improve cooperation with our Central American partners. And we must make sure that 1) all foreign assistance is strategically allocated to support U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives and 2) it is efficacious. Foreign assistance programs that are not working should be cut. And if new programs are needed, we should start them. Appoint a Border Czar. Normally, I don’t like czars. Barack Obama appointed a border czar (Alan Bersin), and it solved nothing. For this administration, however, it might make sense. The next two years in Washington are shaping up to be a continuous running battle between the president and his congressional opposition. Having a general to manage the political fight while government officials focus on the day job of securing the border and enforcing the law might just work. Enforce the Law. White House officials have hinted that they are getting ready to unleash a raft of measures to go after illegal immigrants. Without knowing what they are, it is hard to say if they are the right ones. In principle, however, this makes perfect sense. The administration ought to be doing everything possible to lawfully reduce the illegal population. Further, enforcement with teeth adds to the effective deterrent against future illegal immigration. Let’s face it, our southern border is a hot mess. At least the administration is trying to do something about. The alternative is amnesty and open borders. The better option is to keep doing what can be done until Congress comes to it senses and properly funds the border security, closes the loopholes in the immigration system, and supports the administration in enforcing the law.

Texas State students are trying to ban Turning Point USA from campus Some student government representatives at Texas State University have crafted a resolution calling for conservative organization Turning Point USA to be banned from its campus. The resolution, titled, “The Faculty and Student Safety Resolution of 2019,” alleges the organization has a “consistent history of creating hostile work and learning environments through a myriad of intimidation tactics aimed against students and faculty” and demands that it be removed and barred from the university. www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/texas-state-university-student-government-wants-turning-point-usa-banned-from-campus (because that is exactly what a free speech setting looks like) They used THEIR free speech to lie about TPUSA and to create a "hostile work and learning environment" for them. The real problem is that their claims of intellectual supremacy don't stand up to scrutiny, so they are attempting to get the university to use it's power against TPUSA so they never have to face that defeat. In r/K psychology, they are r's. They claim a superiority they cannot defend and fight by pitting two groups they fear (TPUSA and the University administration) against each other. This IS how the left fights. You'll see the same techniques, writ larger, in all levels of government. Why do you think the Dems denied much needed aid to the red states this week? PR has already received – and squandered – an immense sum of money intended to rebuild the island while there has been NO money appropriated for the MASSIVE Midwest flooding yet and congress has been blocking funds already allocated to NC and TX (red states).

VERY INTERESTING and we know POTUS ties to TESLA… Page 62, in a report titled "NY 65-12290", is particularly eyebrow-raising: "TESLA's only military invention was a method to which he once eluded but nevr [sic] fully described. This invention was a means whereby an impenetrable [sic] 'wall of force' can be erected around the United States' borders which would render helpless any military attack. TESLA disclosed the existence of his plan in 1934 and stated he intended to present it to the Geneva Conference but seldom referred to it afterward." "[Tesla] stands ready to divulge to the United States government the secret of his 'teleforce,' of which he said, 'airplane motors would be melted at a distance of 250 miles, so that an invisible "Chinese Wall of Defense" would be built around the country against any enemy attack by an enemy air force, no matter how large.' "This 'teleforce' is based on an entirely new principle of physics, that 'no one has ever dreamed about,' different from the principles embodied in the in his inventions relating to the transmission of electrical power from a distance, for which he has received a number of basic patents." Coincidentally after Tesla died, none other than electrical engineer and military technology researcher John G. Trump— President Trump's "nuclear" uncle, as an April 2016 New Yorker article by Amy Davidson dubbed him — was the person who examined Tesla's effects and reported his findings to the FBI. www.businessinsider.com/tesla-death-ray-border-wall-trump-2017-2

And task force orange is the most dangerous division of Mil intel, they provide real time intel to Delta, Rangers and seal team six.
Task force orange is a clandestine unit in the spec ops community known by several names - the Activity, ISA Intelligence Support Activity and others. They're one of the if not the most secretive of the known spec ops divisions. Few special operations forces are clad in as much secrecy as the Intelligence Support Activity. Little is known about the organization or its activities, but it is clear that they serve as a military intelligence unit, and have partaken in numerous missions around the globe. The Pentagon frequently disavows knowledge regarding their activities or even their existence, and they've been given different names multiple times to misdirect any probes into their identity or activities. Originally referred to as Task Force Orange, other names have included Centra Spike, Torn Victor, and Gray Fox. Before it operated under the name ISA, the group was referred to as the Field Operations Group (FOG). FOG was developed because of a perceived need for greater intelligence gathering capabilities for the U.S. military. When hostages were taken in the Tehran embassy in 1980, it became clear that FOG needed to become a larger group with more resources. FOG became permanent and renamed ISA on March 3rd, 1981. Join our ranks Bring your skillset to a company that supports you. The ISA specializes in gathering human intelligence, signals intelligence, and combat. Their unique abilities are called on when other special operations forces have not been able to complete their mission due to a gap in intelligence. These missions include finding Pablo Escobar, locating Army General James Dozier when he was kidnapped by the Red Brigade in 1981, and taking out observation points in Afghanistan to protect friendly forces in the area. Gaining entry into the ISA is not easy – candidates must already be part of a special operations forces group.

Biden Has Bigger Problems Than Being An All Out Perv…Corruption Files Exclusive — Peter Schweizer: Joe Biden ‘Steered $1.8 Billion’ to Ukraine While His Son Bagged ‘Sweetheart Deal’ from Their Government. 3 Apr 2019 Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News, recalled how Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s second son, received millions of dollars from Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while his father directed $1.8 billion in aid money to Ukraine as vice president during the Obama administration. Schweizer joined Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak. Schweizer said, “I think a deeper problem that [Joe Biden] faces is — as has been reported on Breitbart and reported at the Hill, today — which I think is far deeper is the fact that his family, particularly his son, cashed in while he was vice president of the United States.” John Solomon reported on Hunter Biden’s receiving millions of dollars from Burisma Holdings after being installed on the company’s board during his father’s vice presidential tenure: U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts – usually more than $166,000 a month – from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.” The general prosecutor’s official file for the Burisma probe – shared with me by senior Ukrainian officials – shows prosecutors identified Hunter Biden, business partner Devon Archer and their firm, Rosemont Seneca, as potential recipients of money. Shokin told me in written answers to questions that, before he was fired as general prosecutor, he had made “specific plans” for the investigation that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.” “We’ve talked before about the deals he procured with the government for China,” remembered Schweizer. “The other place [Joe Biden’s] son, Hunter Biden, procured a big deal was in Ukraine. In Ukraine, it involved an energy company called Burisma, which is a very corrupt organization headed by an oligarch named Mykola Zlochevsky who is very close to ViktorYanukovich, the pro-Russian leader.”… www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/03/exclusive-peter-schweizer-joe-biden-steered-1-8-billion-to-ukraine-while-his-son-bagged-sweetheart-deal-from-their-government/

UK Police ready 10,000 riot officers as fears Brexit tensions could worsen The head of the National Police Chiefs Council, chief constable Charlie Hall, has revealed that at least 10,000 officers have been amassed, trained in tactics to stop looting. It’s a greater number than was deployed during the riots that blighted England in the summer of 2011. Hall claims that reinforcements for local police could begin within an hour of a request and take up to eight hours to fully deliver, insisting “We would easily run at that pace for the first seven days.” Martin Hewitt, chair of National Police Chiefs Council, has issued a warning that “prominent individuals” should avoid inciting anger given the “febrile” and “emotive” atmosphere currently enveloping Britain.It comes as concerns are being raised that rhetoric surrounding the Brexit debate could be contributing to inflaming tensions. Up to 1,000 officers are being trained in case Northern Ireland requires reinforcements, with mainland police constables being taught specific tactics needed in the region. voiceofeurope.com/2019/04/uk-police-ready-10000-riot-officers-as-fears-brexit-tensions-could-worsen/
Collusion? Russians Gave $35 Million to Company with John Podesta on Board Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, John Podesta, played a central role in another potential Russian collusion scandal that has not yet been investigated. Podesta, the former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, served on the board of Joule Unlimited, a now defunct alternative energy company, from January 2011 to January 2014. He resigned from the company’s board to accept the powerful job of Counselor to President Barack Obama. During Podesta’s tenure on the board of Joule Unlimited, a significant investment in the company by a firm owned by the Russian government escaped review and scrutiny by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). In September 2011, eight months after Podesta joined the board of Joule Unlimited, Rusnano, a venture capital fund wholly owned by the Russian government, announced it was investing one billion Russian rubles, $35 million, in the company, which accounted for 46 percent of the $75 million invested in it up to that time from its launch in 2007. Founders Afeyan Noubar and Dr. David Berry invested an estimated $10 million in the 2007 first round. The venture firm Noubar heads, Flagship Ventures – now known as Flagship Pioneering – led a second round investment of $30 million in 2010, as the Boston Globe reported. Curiously, the CFIUS failed to initiate a review of the transaction despite statutory and administrative guidelines that any such transaction in which a foreign country or foreign company obtained more than a ten percent interest in an American company was reviewable. “CFIUS has significant discretion to determine when a foreign entity has sufficient control to confer jurisdiction,” according to Overview of the CFIUS Process, a report prepared by the law firm Waltham & Lakins, a leading practitioner before CFIUS: As a practical matter, the scope of CFIUS’ jurisdiction is often ambiguous. This ambiguity is illustrated by the one “safe harbor” explicitly established by CFIUS’ regulations, which provides that investments resulting in a foreign person having an ownership interest of 10% or less of the outstanding voting interests in the US business are not within CFIUS’ jurisdiction, if those investments are held “solely for the purpose of passive investment.” While this formulation appears straightforward, a closer read reveals that the “passive” nature of the investment can be called into question in light of “other” facts deemed relevant by CFIUS — e.g., contractual or other arrangements between the foreign investor and the target.

When the 2016 presidential election ended, senior company executives admitted the prospects for their renewable energy “biofuels” company evaporated. “We had a lot of prospects last year,” former Joule CEO Brian Baynes told BioFuels Digest in a rare interview in July. “But those new investor prospects walked away, particularly post-election.” Dmitry Akhanov, the president and CEO of Rusnano USA Inc., a Kremlin-owned venture capital firm nicknamed “Putin’s child,” oversaw the Russian government’s investment in Joule and sat on its board along with two other Russians with ties to the Kremlin. Akhavov agreed that Clinton’s loss doomed the company. “We lined up investors who were willing to buy the bonds, but after the elections, with some statements from the new administration regarding potential uncertainty, the future support of biofuels was stopped,” he told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. “The company was not able to do the deal and it was one of the reasons why the company was closed.” Akhanov confirmed to TheDCNF his company invested and lost 1 billion rubles, worth $35 million when Joule closed its doors. According to the 2012 CFIUS annual report, there were no “covered transactions” from Russian companies reviewed in 2011, although a total of 111 other transactions that year were identified as “covered transactions,” including 25 from the UK, 14 from France, and ten from China. Throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State from January 2009 to February 2013, Russian investments in American technology and related companies did not receive a great deal of attention from CFIUS. In calendar year 2009, for instance, 65 “covered transactions” were reviewed by CFIUS. Not one was from a Russian Federation company. (Source: CFIUS 2012 Annual Report to Congress) Of these 65 reviewed transactions, five notices were withdrawn prior to the commencement of an investigation, 25 investigations were undertaken, and two notices were withdrawn after investigations commenced. In total seven of the 65 “covered transactions” were withdrawn, Law360.com reported. In calendar year 2010, 93 “covered transactions” were reviewed by CFIUS during 2010, four from Russia. All four were approved. (Source: CFIUS 2012 Annual Report to Congress). Of these 93 reviewed transactions, six notices were withdrawn prior to the commencement of an investigation, 35 investigations were undertaken, and six notices were withdrawn after investigations commenced. In total 12 of the 93 “covered transactions” were withdrawn, Law360.com reported.
A campaign based on gun control? That’s not going to fly… www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/04/eric-swalwell-says-gun-safety-must-be-top-2020-issue/586483/ There are more long-shot Democrats running for president this year than there have been total candidates in previous campaigns—and next week, Eric Swalwell is joining the pack. The California congressman and frequent cable-news guest on all things related to President Donald Trump and Russia will announce his presidential plans in an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. But he won’t be running on Russia, or on the continuing fallout from the Mueller report and the Barr letter. Swalwell will center his campaign on gun control. Helping him do that will be Cameron Kasky, a survivor of the February 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who became prominent in the March for Our Lives student movement.
MSNBC’s Long, Flailing Road to the Trump Era Before the network stumbled upon a winning formula of turning a deluge of Trump-related scandals into fodder for the Resistance, it lurched from one identity to the next. Over the course of its two-decade existence, it has been a platform for conservative misfits, aging shock jocks, and anti-Bush warriors—sometimes all at the same time. MSNBC’s prime-time lineup may now be anchored by liberals Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes, but it has had more than a few twists, turns, and dead ends: By 2015, its popularity sometimes dipped below not just Fox News and CNN, but also CNN’s airport-lounge spin-off, HLN. There was speculation that it had become too liberal, that the appetite for stem-winding perorations in the vein of Keith Olbermann’s raucous, Bush-era “special comment” programming was simply too limited, and that there was perhaps no national market for a left-leaning counterpart to Fox. Then came the 2016 elections, and the incredible rise and victory of Donald Trump. newrepublic.com/article/153435/msnbcs-wild-ride
Chinese malware mule update: www.politico.com/story/2019/04/04/china-mar-a-lago-arrest-1255290 BEIJING — Chinese diplomats have been informed of the arrest of a Chinese woman at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club over the weekend and are providing her with consular services, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday. Spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters that the Chinese Consulate General in Houston had been notified of the March 30 arrest, had gotten in touch with the person involved and was providing her with consular assistance. Geng gave no details
Sen. Lindsey Graham on the Chinese national arrested at Mar-a-lago: "I'm worried about not just the president, but all of us. You know, they had a they had a Chinese person working in Dianne Feinstein's office that was connected to the Chinese government."
Mar-A-Lago Chinese Spy Friend "Charles" Lee is the founder of the United Nations Chinese Friendship Association, a for-profit Delaware-based company that is not listed by the United Nations as an affiliated organization. Instead, Lee uses the company to advertise Yang’s Mar-a-Lago invites to Chinese clients hoping to get close to Trump. The name of the company is almost identical to the event Zhang said she wished to attend. The group’s website promoted the Chinese Communist Party, and promoted President Xi Jinping’s business diplomacy agenda — an effort to send Chinese business leaders abroad to befriend politicians in hopes of gaining favor for China and its agenda. Since Yang first set foot in Mar-a-Lago in late 2017, she and Lee have brought more than two dozen guests to various Mar-a-Lago events. Yang provided housing for one of Lee’s guests who attended a New Year’s Eve party on Dec. 31, 2018, according to a report by The New York Times. The guest, a Chinese actress named Sun Ye, took photos with two of the president’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump. Lee could not be reached for comment and appears to have disconnected his phone and taken down the group’s website after being contacted by a Herald reporter last week. In a brief conversation at the time, Lee denied knowing Yang before hanging up. www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/article228783369.html
Flashback: NYT: Hillary Clinton Sold Burns, Oregon Uranium Mines to RUSSIA Feb 6 2016 THE INDEPENDENT AMERICAN: WELL, NOW WE KNOW WHY FOREIGN MERCS, DHS, BLM, CIA AND FBI THUGS ARE ALL WAGING WAR ON BURNS, OREGON. THE FOLLOWING WAS POSTED BY THE NEW YORK TIMES: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal A Uranium One sign that points to a 35,000-acre ranch owned by John Christensen, near the town of Gillette, Wyo. Uranium One has the mining rights to Mr. Christensen’s property. MATTHEW STAVER FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES By JO BECKER and MIKE McINTIRE APRIL 23, 2015 The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.�? The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain. But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one. At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One. Frank Giustra, right, a mining financier, has donated $31.3 million to the foundation run by former President Bill Clinton, left. JOAQUIN SARMIENTO / AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE — GETTY IMAGES Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well…… web.archive.org/web/20170313025537/https://theindependentamericanblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/06/nyt-hillary-clinton-sold-burns-oregon-uranium-mines-to-communist-china/
Australia passes social media law penalising platforms for violent content The Labor opposition combined with the ruling Liberal-National Coalition to pass the law on Thursday, despite warning it won’t allow prosecution of social media executives as promised by the government. Tech giants expressed the opposite concern that it may criminalise anyone in their companies for a failure to remove violent material. The bill, described the attorney general, Christian Porter, as “most likely a world first”, was drafted in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack, when video of the alleged perpetrator’s violent attack spread on social media faster than it could be removed. On Thursday Porter said Facebook and Twitter “should not be playing footage of murder”, in the same way that commercial television stations would not show it. “There are platforms such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook who do not seem to take their responsibility to not show the most abhorrently violent material seriously,” he told reporters in Canberra. www.theguardian.com/media/2019/apr/04/australia-passes-social-media-law-penalising-platforms-for-violent-content

Confirms what many people thought. LOS ANGELES (DPA) - The drug ketamine has enjoyed a long career as a workhorse anesthetic. It had a brief career as a party drug known as "Special K." And just last month, it won recognition from the Food and Drug Administration as a fast-acting antidote for treatment-resistant depression. But if you thought the drug ketamine was out of surprises, you'd be wrong. In a new account of the bold operation that freed 12 soccer players and their coach from a watery cave complex in Thailand last July, ketamine is credited with playing a key role in the rescue. In a letter published on Wednesday (April 3) in The New England Journal of Medicine, the medical professionals responsible for masterminding the safe extraction of the trapped team revealed the evacuees were anesthetised with ketamine as they "were swum out of the cave wearing poorly fitting wet suits in cold water." www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/boys-trapped-in-thai-cave-were-drugged-with-ketamine-for-risky-rescue-dives But how were they there in the first place, and how did anybody know they were there? At a larger dose, Gross added, “they’d give you a blank stare. The lights are on but nobody’s home.” Apfelbaum said he believes that many of the boys may have been deeply sedated for the most perilous stretches of the journey. That would have rendered their bodies virtually lifeless, unable to move or thrash about if they panicked, but still able to breathe and to be handed from rescuer to rescuer. For somewhere between 5% and 30% of patients — and for teens especially — ketamine can induce frightening hallucinations, Gross said. And while respiratory suppression is uncommon at moderate doses, “at higher doses, they may lose consciousness and may stop breathing.” “I always make sure we have a breathing bag and oxygen if I give a large dose,” Gross said. “I’d be scared to death I’d have to breathe for them if I gave them anything but a lowish dose.” www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-thai-cave-rescue-boys-drugged-unconscious-20190403-story.html deadspin.com/thai-soccer-team-players-and-coach-were-loaded-up-on-ke-1833794473 www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-44695232 www.nytimes.com/2018/07/06/world/asia/what-to-know-about-the-trapped-thai-boys.html

The dark horse candidate spoke about “freedom,” specifically as it relates to abortion. “You’re not free if your reproductive choices are being dictated by male politicians in Washington,” he stated.

I think both parties are looking at it, but my party has a lot of catching up to do, if you just look at the percentage that we currently spend on digital communications in campaigns. And I think whoever figures that out – and I believe this cycle, 2018 election that's coming up, will probably produce a few people who will be very impressive on this, we just don't know who they are yet. But when they do, I think we ought to pay close attention who shows early signs of mastering digital campaigning, because I think – yeah, bottom line, I think it could be a huge factor. I watched your live stream drive around South Bend with Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook last year. Did you know him from college? Oh, you know I didn't know – yeah, we overlapped in college. I didn't know him very well at the time, but I've gotten to know him since, especially while I was in the process of running for DNC Chair. And obviously I love showing off South Bend to anybody.

Anon on Moral Relativity Moral Relativity. When there is no God, then the morals come from man, and there is no yardstick to measure them by. Its a critical thinking error. These are Godless people, doing their Godless thing. Without God, you have no law giver, therefore, one mans morals are as good as another. Even Hitler could claim he was moral. It's not that most people in America are not moral, or that atheists can not be moral. It is more that American atheists are culturally Christian, where as, an atheist in the middle east would be culturally Islamic, and have no problem at all killing the wife for dishonoring him or fucking a goat. Budda is a wonderful religion but it was not strong enough to fight off Communism. Christianity built the west, and has the right and duty of self defense built into it. It's against the law to murder, because "thou shalt not kill". Founders put those commandments on the courts in stone so we would not forget what our laws came from…. and to make them damn hard to remove. Now we have: "My morals are as good as yours" (Even if I murder babies) We will be suffering the sociopathic personalities until we reinstate moral teachings that were taken out of the schools in 1963. Religious training harmed no one. Normal kids found the ancient history interesting, and went on to study other religions to compare. But for the sociopathic personality, the law is the thing that guides, and only to the degree that they fear getting caught. They are not capable of matters of conscience. They are born blind in that part of the brain. When the whole civilization has had a chance to grow up hashing out the reason for the ten commandments and the benefits to civilization during school, the sociopaths understand what behavior is required not to piss off the normies who see the wisdom of it.
this is a bit awkward
Misinfo in this tweet. Pag'asa island is part of Palawan, Philippines, which is nowhere near Manila. The international arbitration court in 2016 ruled unanimously with Philippines' historic claim to the Spratly islands, of which Pag'asa is a part. Called the Kalayaan islands by the Philippines, the (Spratly's) are fully situated in the West Philippine Sea. The problem is that Philippines is militarily too weak to defend the claims, and other countries are occupying islands in the group as well, not just China. Further problem is that Duterte has made some compromises apparently, in dealing with Xi, and has quietly been ignoring the fishermens' complaints during the last few years of Chinese boats harassing them. All this makes Philippines' hold on the islands very tenuous. Looking at the strategic location of Pag'asa, Trump would do well to establish a base there. That is, if Duterte isn't too proud to allow it.
San Diego lawmakers sue Trump administration as border county cares for 11,000 asylum seekers www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-san-diego-trump-lawsuit-asylum-seekers-20190404-story.html San Diego County's Republican-dominated board of supervisors filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against the Trump administration, claiming that policy changes in the way the federal government treats asylum seekers have strained the city's finances and health services. The Trump administration ended the so-called Safe Release program in October, which gave asylum seekers who had crossed the border assistance in reaching final destinations with family members and friends, the lawsuit noted. "Now, large numbers of asylum seekers and accompanying family members are forced to remain in the County, without sufficient means to support themselves, because Defendants abruptly stopped providing asylum seekers with assistance in reaching their final destination," it reads. "In response to Defendants' sudden and unlawful change in policy … the County has been forced to expend substantial funds and other resources to provide medical screening and care to the asylum seekers." The lawsuit, filed in District Court in Southern California, amounts to one more rebuke of the Trump administration's harsh immigration policies and rhetoric by a border city. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was named in the suit along with leadership at agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection and the Border Patrol. The Department of Homeland Security did not respond to a request for comment. The county board voted in February to sue the Trump administration over the program's end. The vote was 4 to 1, with three of the board's four Republicans joining one newly elected Democrat in supporting it. In Nogales, Arizona, officials formally condemned the installation of six rows of razor wire the military installed on the U.S. side of existing border fence in the city, saying they feared it made residents less safe. In El Paso, Texas, county officials passed a resolution saying they were disillusioned by President Donald Trump's claims about the supposed lawlessness and dangers of the border. In San Diego, the end of the Safe Release program meant the county had to find a place to shelter the 20 to 30 family units (60 to 80 parents and children) that have been released into the county each day since October 2018, according to the complaint. Since December, county health workers have been screening asylum seekers, many of whom have been staying at a shelter the county created out of an old courthouse it leased to a nonprofit. About 75 screenings are conducted by 14 county employees assigned to the shelter each day, according to the lawsuit. "We have an obligation to take care of these families who have gone through so much - we can't let them become victims of human trafficking or become homeless," said Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, a newly elected Democrat whose district includes the shelter. "This is the federal government's responsibility. This crisis is being created entirely by Donald Trump's inhumane immigration policies." Fletcher said 11,000 legal asylum seekers have come through shelters in San Diego since November, with an average stay of 72 hours. Before the Safe Release policy ended, "ICE would transport the traveling asylum seekers directly to the departure points for their prearranged mode of transportation, such bus stations, train stations, and airports, facilitating an orderly release process. ICE would also provide a minimal amount of food to asylum seekers for their journeys to their final destinations," the lawsuit states. Other supervisors did not return requests for comment. The county has spent more than $1.3 million operating the downtown shelter, Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Dianne Jacob wrote on Twitter. "The federal government's negligent approach to those seeking asylum is taking a huge toll on San Diego County taxpayers," she said.
BREAKING: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Campaign Manager Chakrabarti Implicated in “Brazen Dark Money Scheme” '''On Wednesday, The Coolidge Reagan Foundation —a First Amendment watchdog— filed another complaint against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), this time targeting Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign manager, Saikat Chakrabarti. Spanning nearly 50 pages and levying more than 20 counts against Ocasio-Cortez, Chakrabarti, and the entities they created to carry out an unlawful, “dark money” scheme, the complaint provides the most in-depth analysis of Ocasio-Cortez’s various campaign finance violations to date.''' According to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in March, two PACs founded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide, Saikat Chakrabarti funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, reported the Washington Examiner. Today The Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed more charges. In the complaint’s words: “[Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti] engaged in a brazen scheme involving multiple political and commercial entities under their control to violate federal election law, circumvent federal contribution limits and reporting requirements, and execute an unlawful subsidy scheme. This scheme allowed Ocasio-Cortez to gain an unfair advantage by receiving illegally excessive contributions and illegally subsidized campaign services.” You can read the complaint here. Foundation counsel Dan Backer, who authored the complaint, sent The Gateway Pundit this statement: “The subsidy scheme carried out by AOC and her campaign manager involve some of the most egregious campaign finance violations ever recorded. Perhaps even more egregious is AOC’s hypocrisy on the matter, as she continues to portray herself as a campaign finance reformer. It’s time for the Federal Election Commission—and all Americans—to hold AOC accountable, and say no to her self-serving brand of socialism.” According to the Daily Caller Foundation AOC and her Chief of Staff may face serious JAIL TIME! www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/04/breaking-rep-ocasio-cortez-and-campaign-manager-chakrabarti-implicated-in-brazen-scheme/
From last year Robert Mueller’s Israel problem June 5, 2018 As the Mueller probe drags along into year two of its supposed investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, a disturbing pattern has emerged. The special counsel has become obsessed with the state of Israel. The former FBI director is deeply suspicious, to the point of total paranoia, that there is a grand conspiracy involving the Trump campaign and transition officials as potential agents for the Israelis. George Papadopoulos, the Israeli spy? On Monday, the Daily Caller reported that Mueller had allegedly coerced Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos to plead guilty to lesser charges, after threatening that he would be prosecuted as an Israeli spy. There isn’t much public evidence to suggest that Papadopoulos has substantial ties to Israel. Born to Greek immigrants, he has made a career of working on eastern Mediterranean energy issues. He has advocated for the very uncontroversial position that there should be a closer diplomatic and economic bond between Israel, Cyprus, Greece, and the United States. Nonetheless, the prospect of being prosecuted under the Espionage Act is terrifying, as a conviction carries a lengthy prison sentence. While it is supposedly investigating Russia’s activities in 2016, the Mueller probe’s alleged Papadopoulos threat is just one of many instances in which the special counsel has instead exhibited a hyper focus on Israel-related activities. Gen. Michael Flynn and Israel In December, Gen. Michael Flynn pled guilty to making false statements to the FBI. Notably, one of the charges levelled at the decorated general was that during the transition period, he communicated with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. about a coming vote concerning an anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations. Although the mainstream media and the Left accused him of breaching protocol, a transition team reaching out to world powers prior to entering office is not illegal or unusual. In fact, it’s a standard, smart practice. President Obama was notoriously hostile to Israel, so much so that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly called the incoming Trump administration and asked if they could rally for the defeat of the vicious U.N. resolution. The resolution passed anyway, thanks to U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power’s abstention. Nonetheless, Mueller found it necessary to charge Flynn for misleading the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador about the resolution. Additionally, as the special counsel probe drags on, evidence has emerged that Flynn did not in fact mislead the FBI about his conversations. www.conservativereview.com/news/robert-muellers-israel-problem/
Here We Go…Muslim Soldier Plans to Sue Army Over Hijab After She Is Caught Breaking the Rules Spc. Cesilia Valdovinos was demoted this week after she was caught breaking Army regulation. Female members of the Army are required to put their hair in a bun for safety reasons. Cesilia was caught wearing her hair down under her hijab so she was demoted. Now Valdovinos plans to sue the Army over a violation of her civil rights. She says she is a victim of religious discrimination. Voldovinos (Military Religious Freedom Foundation) The Army Times reported: Following a rejected equal opportunity complaint and a demotion in rank, a Muslim soldier who has accused her Fort Carson, Colorado, leadership of religious discrimination is contemplating a federal lawsuit, her attorney confirmed to Army Times on Wednesday. Spc. Cesilia Valdovinos, who was demoted this week following an unrelated Article 15 investigation, will file a complaint alleging violation of her civil rights either in northern Virginia or Denver, according to Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. “This is a pattern and practice of anti-Muslim bigotry, prejudice and harassment,” he said. The 26-year-old culinary specialist’s story first went viral in mid-March, after she filed an EO complaint with her command based on an incident with her command sergeant major at the 704th Transportation Battalion. The senior noncommissioned officer, believing that Valdovinos was wearing her hair down underneath her hijab ― rather than in a bun, per regulation ― demanded the soldier remove the head covering, Her hair fell to her shoulders, Valdovinos told Army Times, because she uses the extra fabric in the cap to secure her bun. When she removes it, the bun falls out. www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/04/here-we-go-muslim-soldier-plans-to-sue-army-over-hijab-after-she-is-caught-breaking-rules/

BUSTED: Beto and Wife Amy O’Rourke Paid $110,000 in Campaign Funds to a Company Either He or His Wife Owned Bobby and Amy O’Rourke come from a wealthy and elitist Texas families. Amy’s father is worth roughly $500 million. But, apparently, that didn’t stop the couple from moving roughly $110,000 of campaign funds to a web development company while either Beto or his wife owned it. The Daily Caller reported: Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke paid roughly $110,000 in campaign funds to a web development company while either he or his wife owned it, public records show. Beto for Texas paid Stanton Street Technology Group $58,544 during the 2011-12 election cycle, $39,060 during the 2013-14 cycle, $9,290 in the 2015-16 cycle and $32,778 during the 2017-18 cycle, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. Either O’Rourke or his wife owned Stanton Street — a small web development firm that O’Rourke founded in 1998 — during the vast majority of those payments. Such payments are legal, so long as the campaign is charged for the actual cost of the services, but ethics watchdogs have criticized the practice as a form of self-dealing. O’Rourke’s wife, Amy Sanders O’Rourke, took over Stanton Street as the Texas Democrat entered Congress in January 2013. She controlled it until early 2017. www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/04/busted-beto-and-wife-amy-orourke-paid-110000-in-campaign-funds-to-a-company-either-he-or-his-wife-owned/

Anon analyzes a POTUS speech – WELL DONE!
Trump holds first 'MAGA' rally since Mueller report
POTUS Grand Rapids Michigan Rally 3 28 2019 Keywords: Donald Trump, Rally, POTUS, Grand Rapids Michigan, March 3 2019, President Still trying to learn the comms. I have added many sections, and refined others. Again, I had to cut the decode into pieces to post it. It took me hours to go over just this one speech, but I learned a lot. On the surface, it is Trump's self-promoting overview of his work so far, and a really good pep rally. Another message within the speech seems to point to General Motors and their CEO, Mary Barra. I noticed Trump's scattered use of numbers counting up 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8… He doesn't seem to go past 8. I don't know what that might mean. Does anyone know who Bill is, with regards to the VA? 46? Still lots of questions. If you noticed other things, or have other interpretations, please reply and add them! I will keep updating and re-posting as long as there is value added. Here are some things that caught my interest. I remember some of these things from other rallies, which makes them stand out even more to me. Information in parenthesis is my personal speculation. @3:13 America's heartland. (Midland Modeling Agency? midland.agency/management ) @3:17 Hardworking patriots from the great state of Michigan. By the way, we're bringing a lot of those car companies back. Remember I told you, they're coming back. They're pouring back in. (This is 197 seconds. 197 = General Motors, High Priestess.) @13:00 They know it's not true. Their ratings dropped through the floor last night. Did you see that? Gestures Air “S,” then Air backwards “Z.” (Backwards “Z” could be a pointed “S.” Making a point. Pointy-headed satanists? 13 = CIA CIA-controlled media tanks in the ratings?) @13:42 Single greatest hoax in the history of politics in our country @13:55 They have to be accountable. (Satanists or satanic journalists committed a hoax and have to be held accountable.) @14:00 Lock her up! (Spontaneous cheer.) @15:15 Russia (Russia = 87 = Clinton) @16:00 I go up to Wisconsin. Where she didn't go. You better get up there, darlin'. (Wisconsin was also highlighted that same day in a twitter account link Q dropped. That account holder said she would be watching the rally from Wisconsin.) @17:00 Michigan, they had so many of those damn signs. Signs. 4 knocks, then 2 knocks. (The sign is 4 knocks, then 2 knocks) (4, 2) Bill Clinton did not like the signs. This was my last stop. @18:00 I can't have more than this. Every seat is gone. Outside you have 25,000 people. (All seats now gone. I have all the seats filled with my people. (Since y=25) The Y families are outside—no seats for them.) @18:22 She's got 500 people. I had 32,000 people. Outside. 1:00 am speech, had made 6 speeches, last second. Why am I going to lose Michigan? She's here at primetime. 7:30. (Primetime is referenced @48:02 in relation to sadists and veterans and Bill.) Home 4am, spoke1am. (Ignoring the code possibilities for a second, this section of the speech highlights how disparate the voting results and the apparent popular support for Trump seem to be. He had around 64 times the people at his rally that night, but he won MI by 0.23%, less than 1%.

(Here is my guess: GM is committed to their foreign and overseas plants. They are not coming back voluntarily. They are offering 1/45th of the investment in our country that another of the top three auto makers in our country is now planning. That is why I have to starve them out in their foreign and overseas plants with the Mexican border closure and 25% tariffs on their best-selling light pickups. I picked that number because the Y families helped them leave. They are reluctant to return and deal with the UAW. They claim they are just trying to stay alive, but I think they are also trafficking drugs like fentanyl in a triangle from China to Mexico to the USA. Since GM is playing chicken with me, I am calling the light truck tariff the chicken tax. I will close the border if I have to, and keep it closed until GM comes to their senses.

Good dig on Obama, GM and the communist infiltration
An interesting compilation of articles that I found while digging Who was BO's mentor crumb. www.truthandgrace.com/obamamentor.htm The General Motors article puts a whole lot in perspective. Hussein's take over GM bailout looks like a lifetime goal of his As we saw during the GM dig, he installed his cronies in GM leadership who moved all manufacturing to China and went full blast on electric cars. After reading anon's impressive speech decode, there's clearly been a spotlight on GM by POTUS. It would be just like Hussein to turn "GM Hitlers" into fentanyl mule vehicles. ==== What Obama's Mentor Thought About General Motors >By Paul Kengor >Forbes >August 1, 2012 … When Obama arrived in Chicago to find himself professionally and politically—just as Frank Marshall Davis himself had once done in the 1930s—Obama literally visualized Davis, pictured him. He thought first of “Frank.” Unfortunately, Obama left out some salient facts about Frank Marshall Davis. Among them, Davis joined Communist Party USA in Chicago during World War II (his Party number was 47544). He became extremely active in Party circles and even wrote for and was the founding editor-in-chief of the Communist Party publication there, the Chicago Star. He left Chicago in 1948 for Hawaii, where he would write for the Party publication there, the Honolulu Record. Those writings reveal a man fully loyal to the Soviet Union and the Communist Party line, and often bare an uncanny resemblance to Obama’s own rhetoric, whether Davis was bashing Wall Street, big oil, big banks, corporate executives and their “excess profits” and “greed” and their “fat contracts,” the wealthy and “millionaires,” GOP tax cuts that “spare the rich,” and on and on. Particularly interesting, however, and worthy of the attention to readers of this publication, were Frank Marshall Davis’s writings incessantly demonizing General Motors. In the Chicago Star, Davis and his comrades eviscerated GM every chance they had. The Star, for instance, mocked the claims of Winston Churchill—incidentally, Davis, like Obama, did not like Churchill—that an Iron Curtain was being erected by Stalin in Europe; to the contrary, the Star maintained that the only “Iron Curtains” were those being erected by the likes of General Motors. The problem was not Stalin’s Iron Curtain, scoffed Frank Marshall Davis in his usual incendiary language, but “G.M.’s iron curtain,” being raised by “General Motors’ Hitlers.” The Chicago Star carried headlines claiming that GM itself was a “branch of U.S. imperialism.” Frank Marshall Davis saw GM as a sinister force, and was unrelenting in his anti-GM crusade for years to come. He was particularly indignant at GM’s profits, which he felt were too high. According to Davis, GM, like America as a whole, was good at manufacturing one thing: “we have manufactured a national horror of socialism.” Another article reviews Hussein's extensive communist connections. With the communists making an appeance in just about every dig, this article is a rabbit hole. Couple of snippets ==== Review: "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within" >Wednesday, 12 September 2012 >by William F. Jasper But the star-struck gumshoes of the MSM were not only completely AWOL during the 2008 campaign regarding Obama’s many troubling connections to radical and subversive groups and individuals, they have continued to ignore the steadily mounting, massive evidence of Barack Obama’s lifelong love affair with collectivism and his extensive ties to some of the most notorious activists of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), the Committees of Correspondence (COC, a breakoff group of the CPUSA) the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Students for a Democratic Society (the radical SDS campus revolutionaries of the 1960s and 70s), the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), and the Weather Underground (WU). Worse yet, the corporate MSM commentariat have actively fronted for Obama, viciously attacking any investigators who dare to expose the facts concerning the ultra-left-wing background, agenda, and connections of President Obama and his mentors, appointees, advisers, and associates. Much of the credit for breaking the media blackout on Barack Obama’s real political identity goes to Trevor Loudon of New Zealand, whose websites KeyWiki.org and Trevorloudon.com have published reams of important information on Barack Obama, key activists in his administration, and the national network of labor unions, think tanks, academics, “community organizations,” and political operations that are crucial to moving his Marxist agenda. Loudon has laboriously unearthed hundreds of documents and thousands of published stories from establishment, communist, and leftist publications to “connect the dots” demonstrating the extensive subversive web of “Progressive” activists that propelled Obama to power. If Frank Marshall Davis had been a single, aberrant influence in Barack Obama’s life, the ho-hum, “so what?” attitude of the political chattering classes regarding this fact might be more understandable, though still not acceptable. However, Comrade Davis represents only the tip of a very large iceberg. One of Davis’ Communist Party comrades and close personal friends was black journalist Vernon Jarrett. Davis and Jarrett were both elected officers of the Communist Party in Chicago and both worked together in many communist front groups. Jarrett is the father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, who is described on the official Obama WhiteHouse.gov website as “a Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama. She is also the Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls.” Alice Palmer: Obama Mentor & Soviet Agent “In the mid-1990s,” writes Loudon, “Alice Palmer, an Illinois State Senator, employed Obama as her Chief of Staff when she attempted an ill-fated run for the US Congress.” He continues: Obama was part of Friends of Alice Palmer, alongside controversial property developer Tony Rezko and Democratic Socialists of America members US Repersentative Danny K. Davis, Betty Wilhoitte and Timuel Black (also a member of Committees of Corresondence). Later Palmer introduced Obama as a designated successor to her Illinois State Senate seat in the living room of former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, while Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) member, former communist and longtime Obama friend Quentin Young looked on. So, who was Alice Palmer, besides being an Illinois state senator? She and her husband, Edward “Buzz” Palmer, were longtime agents for the Soviet Union, serving as a key transmission belt for Soviet propaganda aimed especially at black Americans and Third World “people of color.” The Palmers were allowed privileged access to the Soviet Union, Cuba, and other communist countries in order to issue glowing reports on the glories of socialism for their Black Press Review, which Alice Palmer edited. The List Goes On and On However, Valerie Jarrett, Hilda Solis, Alice Palmer, Carol Browner, and Frank Marshall Davis are but a few of literally hundreds of people close to Obama, or prominent supporters of Obama, who should cause concern in any reasonable American. The most obvious individuals who should elicit alarm are those like Ayers and Dohrn, who were not mere “liberals” but self-described communists, who actually adopted the terrorist path. Now they are professors, unrepentant tenured radicals. Although they are the best-known hardcore radicals in Obama camp, they are far from unique. Other prominent Obamaites from the Weather Underground and the SDS include Jeff Jones, Todd Gitlin, Paul and Heather Booth, Mark Rudd, Tom Hayden, Mike Klonsky,(who I found on the Caravan dig) Wade Rathke, Carl Davidson, Marilyn Katz (WITCH dig), Thorne Dreyer, Angela Davis (Smollett dig), and David Hamilton. But those entries don’t even scratch the surface. What about top Obama advisers David Axelrod, David Bonior, Cass Sunstein, John Holdren, Ron Bloom, Carol Browner, and Rosa Brooks? And what about Timuel Black, Sam Webb, Evalina Alarcon, Quentin Young, Jose Laluz, Pepe and Rudy Lozano (Caravan dig), Andy Stern, Libero Della Piana, Manning Marabel, Cornell West, Frank and Beatrice Lumpkin, Eliseo Medina, Barbara Ehrenreich? And let’s not forget Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Van Jones. What about the huge influence of the Democratic Socialists of America, Progressives for Obama, Peoples Weekly World (the CPUSA newspaper), Movement for a Democratic Society (a revival of the SDS for aging radicals), and radical left unions such as SEIU and AFSCME?

Remember Mexico's Commission oligarchs formed Amigos de Fox to fund PAN President Vicente Fox Quesada's presidential campaigns (with some pretty sketchy accounting is was alleged): www.proceso.com.mx/251322/los-amigos-de-fox translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.proceso.com.mx%2F251322%2Flos-amigos-de-fox web.archive.org/web/20190105200148/https://www.proceso.com.mx/251322/los-amigos-de-fox And remember Mexico's Commission oligarchs funded PAN President Vicente Fox Quesada's vanity presidential library: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicente_Fox_Center_of_Studies,_Library_and_Museum Many of these billionaires were turned into politicians at a Tuesday night dinner party in February 1993. In Godfather III, Michael Corleone tries to buy his way off the mafia Commission at an elegant dinner party. The Mexican version of this scene went a little differently, but in a way it was still a massacre. By 1993, Mexico had privatized many of its state-owned monopolies after decades of government control. As in Russia, this produced a very few, very rich private monopolists. In early 1993, Mexico was also preparing for NAFTA to take effect early the following year. The thirty wealthiest men in Mexico were "invited" to an elegant dinner party with a few talks planned by their peers. It was attended by the then current PRI President Carlos Salinas de Gotari. He let others explain the offer they couldn't refuse. After a wonderful meal, much laughter and a few short speeches, it was clear they would be asked for campaign contributions to the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) Party, which had until that time simply used federal funds to campaign during its more than 50 years in power. The laughter eventually stopped. It was a massive shakedown and one that Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman may have even admired. In short they were told that the only way their monopolies would be protected from NAFTA and the Americans was if they each wrote out a check from between $25 million and $50 million for many of them to the PRI Party. The PRI raised over $750 million (dollars, not pesos) that night. That is equivalent to $1.3 billion in 2018 terms. www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/mexico/readings/banquet.html The members of The PAN Commission know their fortunes live or die together and that dinner party is a case in point. While during the 1994 Mexican presidential election many oligarchs were still under threat of NAFTA abuse by the PRI, The PAN Commission won the very next two presidential elections in 2000 (Vicente Fox Quesada) and 2006 (Felipe Calderon) and shook the nation with their successes. Before you celebrate their successes, remember they are monopolists and more than half of the citizens in Mexico live in poverty. If the elegant Mexican dinner party with all the nation's oligarchs present reminded you of US President Barack Obama's 2011 Silicon Valley oligarch dinner, it did me too. I suspect the elegant Mexican oligarch dinner party had more interesting conversation and better table manners. www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1358363/Steve-Jobs-Mark-Zuckerberg-meet-President-Obama-technology-summit.html
www.scribd.com/document/369582824/Mexico-Dossier-Part-I US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: CURRENT AND FORMER MEXICAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, A MEXICAN OLIGARCH AND MEXICAN POLITICAL MERCENARIES INTERFERED IN THE 2016 US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION SEEKING TO SUPPORT THE HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES FOR SEVERAL STATES WERE POTENTIALLY AFFECTED BY THEIREFFORTS. Summary - Mexican nationals used foreign organizations and both foreign individual and foreign government funding in an effort to alter the 2016 presidential election outcome and affect US foreign policy toward Mexico. - The sophisticated and interconnected efforts had three broadly defined components: 1) tactical, 2) operational and 3) strategic. - Published reports state several states could have had their electoral college results affected to candidate Hillary Clinton as a result of these Mexican efforts. - The efforts sought to influence US domestic and foreign policies which have significant economic impact on the Mexican government and oligarchs - The efforts presented a primary message that emphasized “non - partisanship”, social welfare and an ethnic identity movement. The secondary message was US domestic and foreign policy. This approach appears to have prevented any US law enforcement or intelligence community investigations. - Directors of the operational effort stated that they knew their efforts supported candidate Hillary Clinton. The weight of their publications and message aligned closely with candidate Clinton’s public policy statements. - US individuals associated with the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign colluded with Mexican government officials, a former Mexican president and Mexican political operatives. This raises the question of a potential quid pro quo arrangement concerning US domestic and foreign policy of interest to Mexico and its oligarchs. - US corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, TimeWarner and numerous news outlets were used as part of the Mexican campaign to influence the 2016 US presidential election. - The foreign nationals involved continue to travel and operate freely within the US. - The US government has not levied any diplomatic sanctions against Mexico.

So trucks going back and forth all the time. And then we head down the rabbit hole. The website marxist.com is not a goto source on Mexico. So let's go with it's on the lower end of credibility. But for the heck of it let's still look at just this one article from 2003, long before Q. "Mexico - Genocide against women workers" www.marxist.com/mexico-genocide-women-workers.htm web.archive.org/web/20190324160534/https://www.marxist.com/mexico-genocide-women-workers.htm "Since 1993, more than 4,000 women - workers and students - have disappeared in Ciudad Juarez. According to Amnesty International, 327 of them have been found tortured, raped, mutilated and murdered, after having been kidnapped in the centre of the city at the end of their workday in the maquilas [assembly plants in the US border region], or leaving their computing academies, their bodies abandoned on vacant land." "The Juarez murders were not carried out by one or two serial killers. We are dealing with organised crime, with hired executioners, many of whom are "juniors" rather than common criminals, in order to ensure the highest level of secrecy by applying a mafia-type omerta (law of silence), with a selected club of organisers who have created a crime society in order to satisfy their most obscure vices and at the same time make good business out of it. This group of people have powerful interests in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua and El Paso." "There are also private parties to which politicians, high-ranking police officers, members of the hierarchy of the church, and important narco chiefs are invited. Their basest desires are satisfied, including paedophilia (one of the murdered women was only 6)." …and then the writer unbelievably starts naming names. The full article would be entirely discounted as popoganda if it didn't contain so many Q themes from the past 18 months. To be clear, the Sanders family is never mentioned in the article. It may be worth a separate thread. So many names. "Miguel A. Fernandez Iturriza. Argos, property of the Iturriza family, is the Coca Cola bottling company in Juarez, Sonora, Baja California and Sinaloa, as well as being an important construction company in Ciudad Juarez." "His brother Luis Fernandez Iturriza, is the president of the World Trade Centre El Paso-Juarez organisation."
Pilots of Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 followed rules, preliminary report says Ethiopia's transport minister recommended that aviation authorities confirm the problem had been solved before allowing the model of jet back into the air. www.nbcnews.com/news/world/pilots-ethiopian-airlines-boeing-737-max-8-followed-rules-preliminary-n990816 April 4, 2019, 5:10 AM EDT / Updated April 4, 2019, 7:12 AM EDT By Associated Press ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — The crew of the Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed last month followed proper procedures when their Boeing Max 8 repeatedly nose-dived but were unable to control the plane, according to the first official report on the disaster. The preliminary report recommends that the flight control system should be reviewed by Boeing. "The crew performed all the procedures repeatedly provided by the manufacturer but was not able to control the aircraft," Ethiopian Transport Minister Dagmawit Moges told a news conference Thursday. Moges said "repetitive uncommanded aircraft nose down conditions" had been identified. She recommended that Boeing review the aircraft control system and aviation authorities confirm the problem had been solved before allowing that model of plane back into the air. The Boeing 737 Max 8 jet crashed on March 10 shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 on board. It was the second crash of a 737 Max within five months, following a Lion Air crash in Indonesia. Following the Ethiopian disaster, the Max jets have been grounded worldwide pending a software fix that Boeing is rolling out, which must still receive approval from the Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators. The preliminary report into the Lion Air disaster said the pilots lost control after grappling with the plane’s Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) software, a new automated anti-stall feature that repeatedly lowered the nose of the aircraft based on faulty data from a sensor. Boeing declined to comment pending its review of the preliminary report.

Fox News president on boycotts: We won't allow 'the voices of the few impact our business' Fox News and Fox Business CEO Suzanne Scott said "we're not going to let the voices of the few impact our business" with respect to boycotts of her network's prime-time opinion hosts in an interview with Variety. “We became No. 1 under President Bush. We stayed No. 1 under President Obama. We are still No. 1,” Scott told Variety. “My focus is on business.” “Our audience is deeply connected to our primetime shows,” Scott added. “We are the only ones with conservative talent in primetime. We believe in free speech. We fully support our primetime talent, and we’re not going to let the voices of the few impact our business.” Scott was referencing recent boycott attempts against the channel's highest-rated hosts, including Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, which were primarily driven by left-wing watchdog Media Matters. The network in each of those instances stood by their hosts. Scott was named CEO in May 2018 almost two years after former Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was ousted from the network amid a sexual harassment controversy. thehill.com/homenews/media/437340-fox-news-president-on-boycotts-we-wont-allow-the-voices-of-the-few-impact-our
