WE GOT ANOTHER ONE BNO News Verified account @bnonews JUST IN: U.S. Commerce Department official Lola Gulomova killed in murder-suicide in Washington, D.C.
U.S. Commerce Department official Lola Gulomova killed in murder-suicide U.S. Commerce Department official Lola Gulomova, who previously worked for NASA and the World Bank, was killed on Friday in an apparent murder-suicide in Washington, D.C., local officials say. The suspect was identified as her husband. The incident happened at about 9:25 a.m. when officers responded to the 4300 block of Windom Place, Northwest, for a welfare check, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. Upon arrival, officers gained entry to the residence and observed a man with a handgun. “Officers heard a gunshot then found the adult male suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound,” police said in a statement. “An unconscious and unresponsive adult female was also found inside the residence suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.” Gulomova, who was 45 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her husband, 51-year-old Jason Rieff, was rushed to an area hospital where he was also pronounced dead. The couple had two children but they were not at home at the time of the shooting. “Preliminary investigation by detectives from the Homicide Branch suggest that Ms. Gulomova’s death is a homicide and Mr. Rieff’s death is a suicide,” police said. “The investigation also revealed that this incident is domestic in nature.” Javlon Vakhabov, the Uzbek Ambassador to the United States, said he was “absolutely shocked” by the news. “We lost a true friend of Uzbekistan. My deepest sympathies to her close ones,” he said. “Have met her last week at the [embassy]. She was supposed to leave for Tashkent [on Saturday] to lead [the] first ever trade mission to Uzbekistan.” Originally from Tajikistan, Gulomova graduated from the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, D.C. in 2001. She then joined The World Bank as a consultant. In 2006, Gulomova became NASA Deputy Russia Representative at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow to manage bilateral space relations between the U.S. and Russia. As part of her work, she ensured that American astronauts on the International Space Station received appropriate support. Gulomova joined the U.S. Commerce Department in 2008 and worked at diplomatic posts in Guangzhou, China; Taipei, Taiwan; and New Delhi, India. During her tenure in India, she supported numerous high-level visits, including a visit by U.S. President Barack Obama in November 2010. bnonews.com/index.php/2019/06/2-dead-in-murder-suicide-in-washington-d-c/
DC police mpdc.dc.gov/release/homicide-and-suicide-4300-block-windom-place-northwest Homicide and Suicide: 4300 Block of Windom Place, Northwest Friday, June 7, 2019 Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide and a suicide that occurred on Friday, June 7, 2019, inside of a residence, in the 4300 block of Windom Place, Northwest. At approximately 9:25 am, members of the Second District responded to the listed location for a check on the welfare. Upon arrival, members gained entry to a residence at the listed location and observed an adult male with a handgun. Officers heard a gunshot then found the adult male suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. An unconscious and unresponsive adult female was also found inside the residence suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and found that the female victim displayed no signs consistent with life and remained on the scene until transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. The male was transported to an area hospital. After all life-saving efforts failed, he was pronounced dead. The male decedent has been identified as 51 year-old Jason Rieff, of Northwest, DC. The female decedent has been identified as 45 year-old Lola Gulomova, of Northwest, DC. Preliminary investigation by detectives from the Homicide Branch suggest that Ms. Gulomova’s death is a homicide and Mr. Rieff’s death is a suicide. The investigation also revealed that this incident is domestic in nature. The exact cause and manner of death will be determined pending an autopsy to be conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Oh look – these people aren’t bothering to wait for that autopsy…better to use it right away to push a narrative.
“Lost to gun violence”? How disingenuous. Lost to domestic abuse, is more correct.
Tony Rodham, youngest brother of Hillary Clinton, dies A cause of death was not announced. By USA TODAY Jun 8, 2019, 1:30pm CDT Doug Stanglin Share Tony Rodham CNN Hillary Clinton’s youngest brother, Tony Rodham, who drew headlines for taking advantage of his Clinton connections in dubious business ventures ranging from mining to electric cars to importing hazelnuts, has died. The former secretary of state and first lady said on Twitter that Rodham died Friday night. Rodham was born in 1954 and raised in Park Ridge. The cause of death was not announced. ”It’s hard to find words, my mind is flooded with memories of him today,” she wrote. “When he walked into a room he’d light it up with laughter. He was kind, generous, & a wonderful husband to Megan & father to Zach, Simon, & Fiona. We’ll miss him very much.” Rodham had numerous financial difficulties, including failed businesses, a string of shaky investment projects as well as nagging child support payments. In 2000, as the Clinton administration was coming to a close, Rodham successfully lobbied his brother-in-law, the president, to override the objections of the Justice Department and pardon a Tennessee couple convicted of bank fraud, according to The New York Times. A congressional investigation later found that Edgar Allen Gregory, Jr. and his wife, Vonna Jo, who were in the carnival business, had paid him almost $250,000 as a “consultant” in their bid to get a pardon. In 2010, former President Bill Clinton helped Rodham, then short of cash, get a job raising investments in GreenTech Automotive, an electric car company then owned by Terry McAuliffe, an old Clinton friend and later governor of Virginia, the Times reported in 2015. “I was complaining to my brother-in-law I didn’t have any money. And he asked McAuliffe to give me a job,” Rodham said at a court proceedings involving unpaid legal bills to his lawyer in a child support case, the newspaper said. He also drew scrutiny as co-chairman of Haiti’s recovery commission, following the devastating 2010 earthquake, for allegedly seeking a multimillion dollar deal to rebuild homes in the ravaged country with funding from the Clinton Foundation. In court proceedings in an unrelated lawsuit, Rodham explained how someone in Haiti had “donated” 10,000 acres of land to him. In court testimony, he said he had pressed Clinton for helping in breaking through red tape to get funding for the rebuilding project. “I deal through the Clinton Foundation. That gets me in touch with the Haitian officials,” Rodham said, according to a transcript of his testimony, the Times reported. “I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from. And he can’t do it until the Haitian government does it.” The Clinton Foundation said in a statement at the time that it was not aware of Rodham’s Haiti project, which never materialized, and had no involvement in it, the newspaper says. Likewise, Clinton’s office said at the time he had no involvement in the scheme. In another venture, Rodham sought to export hazelnuts from the Republic of Georgia, where he was linked to a rival to then Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze, a close Clinton ally. The incident prompted a National Security Council official to intervene to defuse a potential diplomatic embarrassment, according to The Washington Post. Rodham is survived by wife Megan Madden and his three children: Zachary, Simon and Fiona. He was previously married to former Sen. Barbara Boxer’s daughter, Nicole Boxer, CNN reported. chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2019/6/8/18657923/tony-rodham-dead-hillary-clinton-brother
Anon questions the narrative: Ok, so…I just did a little digging. Has anyone here found ANY reference to Tony Rodham's death other than Hillary's tweet? ALL of the news mentions I'm seeing and even the Wikipedia page reference is simply the Hillary tweet. Not one "news" source verifying Tony Rodham's death with the police? Really? Hillary doesn't even say he died in her tweet. A dead body doesn't last very long. There will either be a funeral or not. Witness protection? Hillary telegraphing to the cabal that Tony Rodham flipped? Spoopy AF.
Interesting. Hillary's bro Tony was trying to get EB5 VISA's for Huawei. Guess who wrote the article?

August 2013: "Two weeks ago, we brought an emerging "visa for sale" scandal to your attention, laying out how its somewhat byzantine intricacies may infect the Obama White House, the Clinton camp, and Terry McAuliffe's gubernatorial campaign in Virginia. One week later, McAuliffe's headache became a migrane. News reports have revealed that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating a "green" automotive company McAuliffe co-founded, from which he abruptly resigned earlier this year. The basis of the probe? Alleged improprieties connected to soliciting loans in exchange for "EB-5" foreign investor US entry visas. Watchdog.org sounded the alarm on this story back in April, prompting what increasingly looks like a frivolous lawsuit intended to muzzle investigative journalism. Whether GreenTech automotive loses their dubious suit may now be the least of McAuliffe's problems, via the Washington Post: An electric-car company co-founded by Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D) is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission over its conduct in soliciting foreign investors, according to law enforcement documents and company officials. In May, the SEC subpoenaed documents from GreenTech Automotive and bank records from a sister company, Gulf Coast Funds Management of McLean. The investigation is focused, at least in part, on alleged claims that the company “guarantees returns” to the investors, according to government documents. GreenTech has sought overseas investors through a federal program that allows foreigners to gain special visas if they contribute at least $500,000 to create U.S. jobs. Gulf Coast, which is run by Anthony Rodham, the brother of former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, seeks investors for GreenTech and arranges the visas. In recent months, the SEC has stepped up its scrutiny of companies that use the visa program, largely over concerns that investors may have been misled or defrauded by the companies seeking their money. The visa program has also raised national security concerns from some lawmakers worried that suspect individuals are using it to gain entry into the country…" townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2013/08/06/virginia-governor-race-another-rough-week-for-terry-mcauliffe-n1657013 Nov 2017: www.politico.com/story/2017/11/28/greentech-automotive-lawsuit-terry-mcauliffe-262771
Anthony Dean Rodham (1954 – June 7, 2019) was an American consultant and businessman who was the youngest brother of Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the brother-in-law of former U.S. President Bill Clinton. His business dealings had sometimes appeared to take advantage of his connections to the Clintons and accordingly attracted public scrutiny. following the 2010 Haiti earthquake and with Bill Clinton co-chair of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission, Rodham and some partners proposed a $22 million deal to rebuild homes in the devastated nation, with funding to come from the Clinton Foundation. The deal never went forward and the Clinton Foundation said it was unaware of the proposal. In October 2013, Rodham joined the advisory board of VCS Mining, a Delaware-based company that was planning a gold mine in the Cap-Haïtien Arrondissement area of Haiti.By 2015 the project had become controversial due to possible environmental effects and the level of foreign ownership; for his part Rodham objected to any inference that he had gotten this position due to his family: "I'm a very accomplished person in my own right. I raise money for a lot of people. That's what I basically do." On February 19, 2016 he resigned as a board member from VCS Mining as part of a "restructuring plan" with no disagreement among the parties implied. During the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, 2016, he and Hugh appeared with her at a rally in their childhood summer home of Scranton, Pennsylvania in April 2016.He otherwise kept a low profile during the campaign. The GreenTech Automotive matter reemerged in November 2017 when McAuliffe and Rodham were hit with a $17 million lawsuit from a group of thirty-two Chinese investors in it, charging fraud. However in April 2018 a federal judge dismissed both McAuliffe and Rodham from the case. Rodham died on June 7, 2019 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Rodham
Was he in The Club? Oh yes… Had business dealings with the Chinese(enemy). Had a gold mine in Haiti(corruption). Used his connections with BC and HRC to better his business dealings(corruption).
On psychopaths: Some psychopaths are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature. When committing crimes, psychopaths carefully plan every detail in advance and often have contingency plans in place. They will seem unflappable in a crisis. Unlike their sociopathic counterparts, psychopathiccriminals are cool, calm, and meticulous. From a law-enforcement perspective, the “cold-blooded” nature of psychopaths makes them very effective criminals. As such, they are generally more difficult to identify than are sociopaths. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to know when a psychopathic predator has targeted you for exploitation. www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/wicked-deeds/201801/the-differences-between-psychopaths-and-sociopaths
MAXINE WATERS IS ON A QUEST TO FIND TRUMP A NICKNAME — IT’S NOT GOING WELL California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters went to Twitter Friday to find a new nickname for President Donald Trump. “Trump is known for calling others disrespectful names, especially women,” Waters tweeted. “It’s your turn now. What name would you call him?” A significant amount of users responded with answers that were likely not what Waters had in mind. Waters’ tweet came presumably in response to Trump, who is prone to giving his political opponents nicknames, calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “Nervous Nancy” during a Thursday Fox News interview. Trump even has labeled Waters with her own nickname —”Crazy Maxine” — and the California congresswoman has complained about his “name-calling,” saying last March that she “has plenty [of names] for him.” “Her name is ‘nervous Nancy’ because she’s a nervous wreck,” he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. While plenty of respondents picked anti-Trump names for Waters to mull over, plenty more did the opposite of what she intended. dailycaller.com/2019/06/07/maxine-waters-trump-nickname/
Anon adds some good ones: Maxine, allow me to help you out with possible nicknames for POTUS. 1. Big Boss 2. Your Worst Nightmare 3. Savior of Western Civ 4. Ass Kicker 5. Richer Than You 6. Smarter Than You 7. More Popular Than You 8. Greatest Prez Ever Guess what, Maxi Pad…..the tribunal is going to make you call him all of those titles & many more, while on your knees awaiting sentencing. They are also going to make you say stuff like, "DJT is my daddy." "I am a very low IQ person." "I royally deserve my fate…please don't slap me any more."
5 Discrepancies Call the Accuracy of Mueller’s Report Into Question The Mueller report appears to have been carefully worded by the lawyers working under former special counsel Robert Mueller, and perhaps Mueller himself, in a manner designed to inflict political damage on President Donald Trump. Additionally, we now know that sections of the report were also selectively edited to provide damaging portrayals. Examples include the representation of the transcript of a phone call between the president’s attorney, John Dowd, and the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a letter from the attorney of an individual referenced in the Mueller report, and a sequence of dates concerning the meeting between Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. Lastly, there are troubling and disturbing details surrounding a heavily used witness in the Mueller report, George Nader. What makes these examples particularly notable is that access to the underlying material used in the Mueller report is extremely limited. In each of the instances where information is publicly available—documents released in the ongoing Flynn case, a rebuttal letter from lawyers for the individual mentioned in the Mueller report, and details surrounding the Papadopoulos case—they highlight inconsistencies, thereby raising concerns that Mueller’s report may be hiding many more such problems. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) highlighted the Dowd transcript in a May 31 tweet, saying, “This is why we need all backup and source documentation for the #muellerdossier released publicly. It’s all a fraud…” m.theepochtimes.com/5-discrepancies-call-the-accuracy-of-muellers-report-into-question_2951924.html
words getting out about Mueller fuckery… Mueller’s entire report is a fabrication as lie after lie unearthed: Key ‘Russian’ figure actually a State Department intel source It is becoming more apparent by the day to all except hard-core Democrat voters that Robert Mueller a) was never really the ‘stand-up guy’ and Boy Scout he was made out to be; and b) that the report he filed with the Justice Department to close out his special counsel probe of POTUS Donald Trump was pure garbage. In a bombshell report Thursday, ace investigative reporter John Solomon wrote in The Hill that a key figure Mueller mentioned in his report as having ties to Russia and, by default, to the 2016 Trump campaign, was actually an intelligence source for the State Department. Let’s say that again: He was a deep state source for the U.S. government, not an ally of Comrade Putin and the Kremlin. Mueller’s report noted that Ukrainian businessman, Konstantin Kilimnik — the so-called Russian who one-time Trump campaign chairman and businessman Paul Manafort shared internal polling data with isn’t a Moscow operative…he’s actually as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who passed along information on Ukrainian and Russian matters, reported Solomon. Solomon reviewed hundreds of pages of U.S. government documents that prove without any doubt that Kilimnik is certainly a State Department intel source. What’s more, Mueller and his team of Democrat-donating prosecutors had that info in 2018. Mueller portrayed Kilimnik as being a Kremlin sympathizer, despite the fact that his investigators and prosecutors — which included 40 FBI agents attached to his probe — had information informing them about his ties to the State Department, as well as Kilimnik’s intelligence reports to the U.S. Embassy, Solomon noted. In fact, Solomon notes that FBI sources told him Kilimnik was ticked off over Russia’s illegal annexation of the Crimea, once part of Ukraine, so he was hardly a Moscow sympathizer. Mueller’s report also claims that Kilimnik brought a ‘peace plan’ to the Trump campaign for settling the Crimea conflict between Russia and Ukraine. However, that’s not accurate, either. In fact, according to State Department emails reviewed by Solomon, the same plan was actually given to the Obama Administration in May of 2016 — during Kilimnik’s visit to Washington D.C.: thenationalsentinel.com/2019/06/07/muellers-entire-report-is-a-fabrication-as-lie-after-lie-unearthed-key-russian-figure-actually-a-state-department-intel-source/
In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence. But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters. Why Mueller’s team omitted that part of the Kilimnik narrative from its report and related court filings is not known. But the revelation of it comes as the accuracy of Mueller’s Russia conclusions face increased scrutiny. The incomplete portrayal of Kilimnik is so important to Mueller’s overall narrative that it is raised in the opening of his report. “The FBI assesses” Kilimnik “to have ties to Russian intelligence,” Mueller’s team wrote on page 6, putting a sinister light on every contact Kilimnik had with Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman. twitter.com/jsolomonreports?lang=en
Meadows: FBI Knew 'Within 60 Days' That Russia Probe 'Built On A Foundation Of Sand' Mark Meadows confirmed what many have suspected about the Trump-Russia for a long time; the FBI knew early on that the foundation of its counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign was built on 'a foundation of sand,' reports the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross. North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows (R) told Hannity Friday night that the FBI knew "within 60 days of them opening the investigation, prior to [Robert] Mueller coming on, the FBI and the [Department of Justice] knew that Christopher Steele was not credible, the dossier was not true, George Papadopoulos was innocent." Meadows did not elaborate on why he believes the FBI knew their investigation was built on a mountain of lies, however according to The Hill's John Solomon last month, memos which were retroactively classified by the DOJ reveal that a high-ranking government official who met with Christopher Steele in October 2016 determined that information in the Trump-Russia dossier was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media. Meadows also suggested that the FBI had exculpatory information on Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who was fed the rumor that Russia had negative information on Hillary Clinton, and later bilked for said information by a Clinton-linked Australian diplomat. Papadopoulos would later be subject to a spying operation in which the FBI sent in two operatives to trick the Trump adviser in a failed business / honeypot operation. The bureau opened its investigation of the Trump campaign on July 31, 2016, after receiving a tip about Papadopoulos from the Australian government. Within those two months, the FBI team leading the investigation received information from Steele’s dossier. The FBI also dispatched a longtime FBI informant, Stefan Halper, to meet with Papadopoulos. The pair met in London in mid-September 2016 after Halper offered Papadopoulos $3,000 to write a policy paper. Halper, a former Cambridge professor, was accompanied by a woman he claimed was his assistant, Azra Turk. She is reportedly a government investigator. Meadows in the past has suggested the FBI had exculpatory information on Papadopoulos that showed the Trump aide was not working with Russia. -Daily Caller The FBI relied on the Steele dossier to obtain surveillance warrants on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, ostensibly allowing the Obama administration to surveil those Page was in contact with. www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-08/meadows-fbi-knew-within-60-days-russia-probe-built-foundation-sand

Well now, this is suspect given what we know of trafficking and how it works Angelina Jolie urges international support for Venezuelan children BOGOTA (Reuters) - Hollywood star Angelina Jolie on Saturday urged the international community to provide more support to three South American countries with the most migrants from crisis-hit Venezuela, saying 20,000 Venezuelan children are at risk of being without basic citizenship rights. Jolie spoke in Colombia as a special envoy for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). She is on a two-day trip to meet Venezuelan migrants there and met with Colombian President Ivan Duque in Cartagena. Four million Venezuelan refugees and migrants have fled economic and humanitarian crisis in their homeland. More than a million are living in Colombia, where the government and aid agencies have scrambled to provide housing, food and healthcare to an ever-growing influx of migrants arriving in already-poor and violent border regions. The parents of Venezuelan children born abroad often struggle to register their baby’s birth, either because they do not have access to an ever-shrinking number of Venezuelan consulates or because they do not have migration papers. “The president and I spoke of the risk of statelessness for more than 20,000 Venezuelan children, his commitment to always helping children,” Academy Award-winner Jolie, 44, said at a press conference.

G-20 finance chiefs mull 'fair tax' reforms to boost growth FUKUOKA, Japan (AP) – Finance chiefs of the Group of 20 major economies meeting in the Japanese city of Fukuoka debated Saturday over how to revise tax systems to ensure big companies pay their fair share and support economies as global growth slows. One aim is to prevent a "race to the bottom" by countries trying to lure companies by offering unsustainably and unfairly low tax rates as an incentive. Ensuring governments capture a fair share of profits from the massive growth of businesses like Facebook and Amazon has grown in importance over the many years the G-20 finance chiefs have been debating reforms aimed at preventing tax evasion and modernizing policies, as financial markets and businesses have been transformed by technology. "Everyone, we are now facing a turning point. This could be the biggest reform of the long established international framework in over 100 years," Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso told the group. While the officials from both wealthy and developing nations differed over some details, they agreed on the need to get the job done. "It sounds like we have a strong consensus, and now we deal with the technicalities of how we turn this into reality," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Saturday. The talks in this bustling port city come just weeks ahead of the June 28-29 summit of G-20 leaders in Osaka, Japan, where President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping are due to meet and possibly work on resolving their bruising standoff over trade and technology. Mnuchin has been heading trade talks with Beijing along with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer. He was due to meet with Yi Gang, governor of China's central bank, in Fukuoka. It was unclear if their meeting might lead to a restart of those talks after weeks of stalemate. Concern over the potential blow to the world economy from the battle of wills between the two biggest economies has deepened as the Trump administration prepares to expand retaliatory tariff hikes of up to 25% to another $300 billion of Chinese products. The United States now is imposing 25% taxes on $250 billion in Chinese goods. Beijing has counterpunched by targeting $110 billion worth of American products, focusing on farm goods such as soybeans in a deliberate effort to inflict pain on Trump supporters in the U.S. heartland. mainichi.jp/english/articles/20190608/p2g/00m/0bu/025000c
Old piece but interesting Who Are the Rich, White Men Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology? Exceedingly rich, white men (and women) who invest in biomedical companies are funding myriad transgender organizations whose agenda will make them gobs of money. As an environmental activist who was deplatformed from a speaking venue by transactivists, in 2013 I developed curiosity about the power of this group to force this development. A year later, when Time magazine announced a transgender tipping point on its cover, I had already begun to examine the money behind the transgender project. I have watched as all-women’s safe spaces, universities, and sports opened their doors to any man who chose to identify as a woman. Whereas men who identify as transwomen are at the forefront of this project, women who identify as transmen seem silent and invisible. I was astonished that such a huge cultural change as the opening of sex-protected spaces was happening at such a meteoric pace and without consideration for women and girls’ safety, deliberation, or public debate. Concurrent with these rapid changes, I witnessed an overhaul in the English language with new pronouns and a near-tyrannical assault on those who did not use them. Laws mandating new speech were passed. Laws overriding biological sex with the amorphous concept of gender identity are being instituted now. People who speak openly about these changes can find themselves, their families, and their livelihoods threatened. thefederalist.com/2018/02/20/rich-white-men-institutionalizing-transgender-ideology/
Merkel's conservatives hit new low, piling pressure on coalition BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives slumped to a record low and fell further behind the resurgent opposition Greens in a survey published on Saturday, reflecting growing disillusionment with the ruling coalition. Doubts are mounting that Merkel’s right-left alliance can last its full term until 2021, largely due to disarray within her Social Democrat (SPD) partners, and many experts now see increasing chances of a federal election next year. The Forsa poll put the conservative bloc on 24%, down two points from a week ago. The Social Democrats (SPD) remained stuck at their low of 12% - level with the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) - a week after their leader quit because of a dismal performance in regional and European elections. Many members want to quit government and rebuild in opposition. The Greens, buoyed by growing concern across Europe about climate change, which helped propel them to second place in European Parliament elections, remained the most popular party, on 27%. “The Greens are benefiting from high voter mobilization, the self-destruction of the SPD and attempts by the conservatives to trump the Greens on climate protection,” said Forsa chief Manfred Guellner. If Merkel’s coalition collapses, Germany faces the possibilities of a snap election, a minority government or an unwieldy alliance of three blocs. Any of those scenarios would be likely to hasten the exit of Merkel, chancellor for almost 14 years, who has handed over the leadership of her Christian Democrats (CDU) to protege Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Merkel has said she will not stand again as chancellor of Europe’s biggest economy. Kramp-Karrenbauer has failed to boost the CDU and in the Forsa poll, only 19% of respondents said they would back her as chancellor in a direct vote, two points down from a week ago. The SPD have yet to decide how to elect their next leader and no one has yet stepped forward. The weekly Der Spiegel ran a title story on Kevin Kuehnert, the hoody-wearing 29-year-old head of the SPD youth wing, a divisive figure who campaigned against the grand coalition last year and wants to shift the party to the left. It quoted some party members as saying they would like him to stand as leader and others saying it would be madness. The media-savvy Kuehnert is no stranger to controversy; last month he caused a storm by saying companies such as carmaker BMW should be taken into collective ownership. www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-politics/merkels-conservatives-hit-new-low-piling-pressure-on-coalition-idUSKCN1T90GA
Ohio jury awards $11 million to bakery owners targeted by Oberlin College student protests Bakery filed the libel suit after student boycott, allegations of racism. The owners of an Ohio bakery who sued for libel after being targeted by student protests won Friday an $11 million verdict against Oberlin College. A Lorain County jury ordered Oberlin to pay $11 million in compensatory damages to Gibson’s Bakery, a local fixture since 1885 that was beset by protests and racism allegations after three black students were arrested for shoplifting the day after the 2016 presidential election. “The jury saw that Oberlin College went out of their way to harm a good family and longtime business in their community for no real reason, and the jury said we aren’t going to tolerate that in our community anymore,” Owen Rarric, an attorney for the Gibsons, told Legal Insurrection. The award, which could triple at Tuesday’s hearing on punitive damages, came as a warning to universities that encourage social-justice activism as student protests spill from the campus to the local community. “The verdict sends a strong message that colleges and universities cannot simply wind up and set loose student social justice warriors and then wash their hands of the consequences,” said Cornell Law School professor William Jacobson, who runs the conservative Legal Insurrection website. Bakery owners said they lost business after Oberlin students held protests accusing them of discrimination.

Iran has no plans to leave OPEC despite tensions: oil minister GENEVA (Reuters) - Iran has no plans to leave the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries despite being treated like an enemy by some fellow members, Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said in an interview published on Saturday. “Iran has no plans to leave OPEC…and regrets that some members of OPEC have turned this organization into a political forum for confronting two founding members of OPEC, meaning Iran and Venezuela,” Zanganeh told the Iranian parliament news site ICANA. “And two regional countries are showing enmity toward us in this organization. We are not their enemy but they are showing enmity toward us…and (they) use oil as a weapon against us in the global market and world.” Zanganeh did not name the two countries. Tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - both U.S. allies - have spiked this year after the two said they would increase oil production to make up for Iranian crude cut off from the market by U.S. sanctions. On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration added Iran’s largest petrochemical holding group to its sanctions list, accusing it of indirectly supporting Tehran’s Revolutionary Guards. Washington said the move aimed to dry up revenues to the elite Iranian military force but analysts called it largely symbolic. Zanganeh was also quoted by ICANA as saying the United States had made it increasingly difficult for Iran to sidestep sanctions but it had come up with new ways to circumvent them. “We have thought about confronting America’s actions and constantly have found and will find new ways and anyway this is a war where we are standing strong and will not retreat.” he said, without elaborating. The Trump administration is seeking to isolate Iran over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs as well as its support for proxy groups in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen. www.reuters.com/article/us-iran-oil-opec/iran-has-no-plans-to-leave-opec-despite-tensions-oil-minister-idUSKCN1T9085
Mind control observation: I quit watching the John Oliver show when I realized how wicked and horrible literally ALL the humor was. Then he went anti-Trump and it was positively sickening to me - to the point where I had to leave the room or slap on headphones if the fam insisted on watching it. Why? Because even though it was repulsive, I couldn't help but listen and listening felt really bad. This anon's comment makes a lot of sense to me and explains why it made me feel so uncomfortable.
It’s Pride Month…let’s see how the different players react to this:

Very insightful anon on the LGBTQ movement: why, if they care about inclusion, is there no 'S' for 'straight' or 'H' for 'hetero' in the logo? Gay people don't separate themselves from their families. That's a big fat myth. And Gay people are supportive of other people's choices. In fact a straight man, who is a hot and young and awesome dude, often has gay friends who support and mentor. The problem isn't the desire or the fondness, it's the lack of respect towards others. If you are gay and 'love' a straight man, then you respect him and leave him to be as he is and DO NOT try 'conversion' or other bullshit. Gay is fake. What we really have are confused people who don't know how to love each other meaningfully without it turning into naked wrestling. The worst thing a gay man does is to sabotage his straight relationships by trying to turn it into sex. LGBTQ needs and H or and S to be legitimate. otherwise it's just division. PS: the worst that a gay is treated is by creepy gays who abuse them and then toss them aside like yesterday's news. so I'm warning you young who think you have an alliance with 'all the gays': some of htem are preditory and mean and will abuse you if you let them. Most, of course, are good. It's clear that LGBTQ is a political, and not a social movement.

www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/06/08/ramadan-2019-deadlier-than-2018-taliban-responsible-for-over-40-of-nearly-2000-casualties/ Predominantly Sunni jihadi groups carried out 187 terrorist attacks across nearly 30 countries on Ramadan this year, driving the number of fatalities up to 911 and injuries to 1,006 when compared to the casualties during the holiest month for Muslims in 2018, a Breitbart News database analysis shows. The number of deaths went up by about ten percent, from 841 last year to 911 in 2019. The overall number of casualties, including injuries, slightly increased by less than five percent from 1,855 (841 killed; 1,014 injured) to 1,917 (911 killed; 1,006 injured) in 2019.
Hedge Fund Analyst Admits Soliciting Fake Bond Quotes In $200 Million Investor Fraud Conspiracy On Thursday, a former chief risk analyst at hedge fund Premium Point Investments, which is now defunct, testified that he sought out fake mortgage bond quotes from brokers in order to inflate the firm's portfolio value to investors, according to Bloomberg. Ashish Dole was the first witness in the New York fraud trial of Premium Point co-founder Anilesh “Neil” Ahuja and former trader Jeremy Shor. The defendants are accused of participating in a $200 million conspiracy to overvalue their securities, allowing them to charge higher fees and hide the true financial health of the firm from clients. Dole told a federal jury on Thursday that he started to solicit fake valuations from brokers shortly after he started working as a trading assistant to Shor in 2014. In exchange for the fake quotes, the brokers would get more business from the hedge fund. Dole testified: "Shor said that he liked to use friendly brokers who would provide us the valuations that we want on our securities. He said that depending on the values that we need for the securities, if we need higher values, we could go to these brokers and they would give these values in exchange for trading with them.” Ahuja and portfolio manager Amin Majidi are accused of setting falsely inflated targets for their portfolio returns at the end of each month and then reverse engineering their way to these targets by backing into sham valuations. Lawyers representing the two men have argued that the valuations they assigned were within appropriate ranges for securities that are illiquid and can be difficult to price. They also claim that investors were aware of the fund's methods for valuation. Dole and Majidi both pleaded guilty and are cooperating with prosecutors, as is broker Frank DiNucci, Jr., formerly of Nomura. Dole said that him and Shor would go to DiNucci Jr. at the end of the month to get the fake quotes. Dole said: “We could tell Frank to give us the prices that we want and get to that target. That’s not how it’s supposed to work. Mr. DiNucci should be providing his independent evaluation of each security.” Jurors were shown emails and text messages between Dole, Ahuja and Shor that showed discussions about getting the false valuations. In June 2015, Shor jokingly asked: "am I gonna promise frank a reach-around? Should I put pressure to get the loans marked?" Dole then explained to the jury: “It’s a crude reference to a sexual favor but really refers to the quid-pro-quo relationship." Ahuja started Premium Point in 2008 after leaving Deutsche Bank, where he was the head of the residential mortgage bond desk. The firm focused primarily on US residential real estate and sought to acquire undervalued assets by using granular research, including attending foreclosure auctions and tapping broker networks to monitor borrower behavior. The company began stockpiling mostly subprime residential mortgage bonds after the global credit crisis. The fund started to wind down in 2016 amidst an investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Its CFO stepped down in January 2017 and by May, federal prosecutors were investigating funds that included Premium Point, suspected of inflating the value of debt securities in their portfolios. The firm's mortgage credit funds filed for bankruptcy protection last year. www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-07/hedge-fund-analyst-admits-soliciting-fake-bond-quotes-200-million-investor-fraud? this is not an isolated incident-the only way most of these 'tutes were able to keep going is to do these things-either lie about the quotes or compromise the compliance departments. Could it be - a CONSPIRACY THEORY now turned to CONSPIRACY FACT?
Pfizer created anti inflammatory drug that inadvertently prevented Alzheimers, decided to hide it from public Pfizer had clues its blockbuster drug could prevent Alzheimer’s. Why didn’t it tell the world? A team of researchers inside Pfizer made a startling find in 2015: The company’s blockbuster rheumatoid arthritis therapy Enbrel, a powerful anti-inflammatory drug, appeared to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 64 percent. The results were from an analysis of hundreds of thousands of insurance claims. Verifying that the drug would actually have that effect in people would require a costly clinical trial — and after several years of internal discussion, Pfizer opted against further investigation and chose not to make the data public, the company confirmed…. The company told The Post that it decided during its three years of internal reviews that Enbrel did not show promise for Alzheimer’s prevention because the drug does not directly reach brain tissue. … …outside researchers contacted by The Post believe Pfizer also should at least have published its data, making the findings broadly available to researchers. …“It would benefit the scientific community to have that data out there,’’ said Keenan Walker, an assistant professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins who is studying how inflammation contributes to Alzheimer’s. www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/pfizer-had-clues-its-blockbuster-drug-could-prevent-alzheimers-why-didnt-it-tell-the-world/2019/06/04/9092e08a-7a61-11e9-8bb7-0fc796cf2ec0_story.html?utm_term=.786f02534a17 They don’t want the public or other researchers to know how Alzheimer’s is linked to inflammation. www.investmentwatchblog.com/pfizer-created-anti-inflammatory-drug-that-inadvertently-prevented-alzheimers-decided-to-hide-it-from-public/
True The Vote Wins Historic $2 Million Settlement Against IRS News we might have missed. Last week Catherine Engelbrecht announced a historic legal victory in her decade long battle against the IRS for targeting her group, True The Vote, as part of the Obama administration’s weaponization program against political opposition. U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton issued a stunning ruling in favor of True the Vote, and penalized the IRS. Judge Walton forced the IRS to pay maximum attorney’s fees due to discrimination against the conservative organization that stemmed from the Lois Lerner scandal. The financial award is likely to exceed $2 million. Ms. Engelbrecht’s case is actually connected to the political surveillance operation used against presidential candidate Donald Trump. Factually, the 2010 program to weaponize the IRS looks like the precursor to the 2012 program to weaponize the NSA database. theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/06/08/true-the-vote-wins-historic-2-million-settlement-against-irs/
