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.
If you find news stories that we have missed, feel free to add them to the current daily thread with links.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. - The Declaration of Independence.

…Companies to come to the U.S.A and to get companies that have left us for other lands to come back home. We stupidly lost 30% of our auto business to Mexico. If the Tariffs went on at the higher level, they would all come back, and pass. But very happy with the deal I made,…
….If Mexico produces (which I think they will). Biggest part of deal with Mexico has not yet been revealed! China is similar, except they devalue currency and subsidize companies to lessen effect of 25% Tariff. So far, little effect to consumer. Companies will relocate to U.S.
This is because the Euro and other currencies are devalued against the dollar, putting the U.S. at a big disadvantage. The Fed Interest rate way too high, added to ridiculous quantitative tightening! They don’t have a clue!
“Mueller has spoken. He found No Collusion between the Trump Campaign and the Russians. The bottom line is what the Democrat House is doing is trying to destroy the Trump Presidency (which has been a tremendous success), and I can assure you that we’re done with the Mueller…… ….investigation in the Senate. They can talk to John Dean until the cows come home, we’re not doing anything in the Senate regarding the Mueller Report. We are going to harden our Infrastructure against 2020!” @lindseygrahamsc
Interdasting…. POTUS re USA - "When you ARE the big piggy bank" Q re ICRC - "Red Cross is corrupt and USED AS a piggy bank" USA = source of the money ICRC = used to transfer the money Why not? ICRC has the ability to cross borders at will due to its internationally recognized status as a charitable benefactor. Frequent go-between to communicate in war/POW situations, brings in tons of "humanitarian aid" that doubtless receive little to no scrutiny anywhere in the world. I know this isn't a new concept (the $$ in the RC boxes is well known)… What I'm curious about is whether we've adequately analyzed the ICRC structure/basing/methodologies? Their HQ, offices, bases of operations and logistics assets have ties to other aspects of the Cabal's other systems? Haven't seen anything on this that I can recall. Mebbe this data is a missing strand of the spider web?
From White House to dress whites: Ensign Reince Priebus commissioned into Navy Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus was commissioned as an ensign in the U.S. Navy on Monday. The commissioning ceremony, which was led by Vice President Mike Pence, attracted lawmakers from Priebus’ home state of Wisconsin and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. "It was an honor and privilege to attend @reince’s naval commissioning ceremony this morning. Congratulations and thank you for your service Ensign Priebus!!!" Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., tweeted. The Washington Post reported in December that Priebus had military ambitions and that a Navy review board “professionally recommended” Priebus to join the Navy through a direct-commission program for human resources officers. Priebus, 47, obtained an age waiver to join the service because those over 42 are barred from serving as an officer. He left the White House in 2017 and was replaced by John Kelly, who stepped down last December. www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/reince-priebus-becomes-navy-officer
Supreme Court rejects challenge to regulation of gun silencers The Supreme Court is rejecting a challenge to federal regulation of gun silencers, just days after a gunman used one in a shooting rampage that killed 12 people in Virginia. The justices did not comment Monday in turning away appeals from two Kansas men who were convicted of violating federal law regulating silencers. The men argued that the constitutional right "to keep and bear arms" included silencers. Kansas and seven other states joined in a court filing urging the justices to hear the appeal. The states said the court should affirm that the 2nd Amendment protected "silencers and other firearms accessories." The other states joining Kansas in the court filing were: Arkansas, Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, South Carolina, Texas and Utah. President Trump's administration asked the court to stay out of the case and leave the convictions in place. www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-supreme-court-gun-silencers-20190610-story.html
California’s top bullet train consultant is suspended amid a state ethics review The top consultant on the California bullet train has been put on suspension after a state watchdog agency began reviewing his approval of a multimillion-dollar contract for a company in which he had heavily invested, The Times has learned. Roy Hill, deputy chief operating officer for the California High-Speed Rail Authority and a senior executive at the lead consulting firm WSP, signed a $51-million change order for the construction team led by the Spanish firm Dragados. It happened in the same year he may have owned more than $100,000 of stock in Jacobs Engineering, which is part of the Dragados team, records show. Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno), a longtime critic of the rail project, requested the state Fair Political Practices Commission last week to launch an investigation into Hill’s actions and holdings. On Monday afternoon, WSP suspended Hill at the direction of the rail authority, pending the outcome of the FPPC review , according to WSP and rail authority officials. The rail authority also sent an internal email about the suspension to the agency’s staff. www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-bullet-train-investigation-20190604-story.html?hootPostID=8a8d5860ef034d5bf032c2add331115f
PG&E wins court case allowing it to renegotiate $34 billion in renewable energy contracts Pacific Gas & Electric has won a huge legal decision from the bankruptcy court agreeing with its position that in can proceed to renegotiate $42 billion dollars in costly energy power purchase contract commitments including many renewable energy contracts. This decision will likely be appealed but for the time being the $42 billion dollars in power purchase energy contracts with suppliers including renewable energy projects with NextEra Energy Inc., Consolidated Edison Inc. and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. are under challenge and could be subject to complex and lengthy renegotiations as a part of PG&E’s bankruptcy proceedings which not only might delay these planned renewable contracts but could also significantly jeopardize California’s future renewable energy use time table. The Wall Street Journal noted the following regarding how this ruling came about and its significance concerning PG&E’s future renewable energy contracts. wattsupwiththat.com/2019/06/11/pge-wins-court-case-allowing-it-to-renegotiate-34-billion-in-renewable-energy-contracts/
San Francisco city hires adviser to explore potential acquisition of PG&E assets (Reuters) - The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission said on Tuesday it has hired an adviser to explore the potential acquisition of PG&E Corp’s distribution assets, sending shares of the power company up 2.6% at $18.37. San Francisco has hired Jefferies LLC as buy-side financial adviser, the utilities commission’s Press Secretary Will Reisman told Reuters in an e-mail statement. According to a preliminary report released by the commission in May, there are three options for the city, which include the acquisition of PG&E assets in San Francisco to achieve self-sufficiency in power generation. In the report, the commission also noted that although acquisition of PG&E assets would be a lengthy process, the city’s electric grid could potentially benefit in the long-term. “It would also lead to more stable rates and more transparency for customers.” PG&E said it would remain open to communication and is “committed” to working with the city. “We look forward to reviewing the city’s analysis and appreciate the city’s open and transparent dialogue on the subject,” PG&E said in a statement. PG&E sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January after facing liabilities of more than $30 billion in the wake of Camp Fire, California’s deadliest and most destructive wildfire in recent years. www.reuters.com/article/us-pg-e-us-sanfrancisco-assets/san-francisco-city-hires-adviser-to-explore-potential-acquisition-of-pge-assets-idUSKCN1T52GQ
House to Mark Up Surprisingly Bipartisan Bill to Counter China’s Shell Companies The House Financial Services Committee takes a break on Tuesday from baiting President Trump to mark up a surprisingly bipartisan bill to counter aggressive Chinese shell companies. I say surprisingly because Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), and the Democrat House more generally, has otherwise shown interest only in attacking President Trump. The Financial Services hearing will mark up the Corporate Transparency Act of 2019. The lead sponsor of that bipartisan bill is Emanuel Cleaver (D-NY), along with Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) as co-sponsors. The bill modernizes U.S. anti-money laundering laws and authorizes U.S. law enforcement agencies to investigate who is establishing these rogue Chinese shell companies. The House is acting because Chinese shell companies have been so aggressive that their conduct seems to be in preparation for outright war against the United States. Some 22,000 shell companies, so labelled because they seem to engage in little else but illegal conduct, have been traced back to China and Hong Kong by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. They are owned by the some of the richest and most powerful men and women in China, including Deng Jiagui, the brother-in-law of President Xi Jinping. The shell companies are used to bust U.S. sanctions against rogue regimes like North Korea and Iran. Hauwei is accused of operating a shell company hidden in the diminutive island nation of Mauritius to evade sanctions against Iran. townhall.com/columnists/peterferrara/2019/06/10/house-to-mark-up-surprisingly-bipartisan-bill-to-counter-chinas-shell-companies-n2547848
The NYPD is investigating a woman’s claim that actor Cuba Gooding Jr. inappropriately touched her at a Manhattan club Sunday night, police sources said. The 30-year-old woman told cops the actor grabbed her breast while they were socializing around 9 p.m. at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge on 7th Avenue in Midtown. The woman said Gooding was “highly intoxicated” and that, after the alleged grab, she got into an argument with him that had to be broken up by security, the sources said. The 51-year-old actor was caught on video leaving the club soon after the incident and the woman called 911 around 1 a.m. Responding cops searched the area for Gooding but did not find him. The case was referred to the NYPD Special Victims Division, the sources said, which is probing a potential forcible touching charge. Social media posts showed Gooding at the hotspot inside the Moxy Hotel Times Square in a torn button-down shirt and belting out a spirited rendition of Journey’s song “Faithfully” into a microphone. A witness told The Post that Gooding appeared “happy” as he chatted up other clubgoers. He filmed a video message for one fan in Portuguese before sitting down with some pals. “He was super good … sang with everyone,” the partygoer said, adding they didn’t witness the alleged incident. The Oscar-winning “Jerry Maguire” star’s hard-partying antics have raised eyebrows before for creeping women out. He boozed it up sans shirt on the Miami party circuit in 2016, when a witness said he was “beyond frisky with girls.” Gooding was seen pulling down his pants and also shoved a partygoer’s phone in his mouth, sources said at the time. “He’s like Jekyll and Hyde … He goes from being super-friendly to super-aggressive,” a spy added. Gooding, who starred as OJ Simpson in “The People v. OJ Simpson” TV series, was married to Sara Kapfer until they separated in 2014. He filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart in 2017 after over 20 years of marriage. He has most recently been linked to Claudine De Niro, the estranged wife of Robert De Niro’s son Raphael. Reps for the actor didn’t immediately return messages. Additional reporting by Jackie Salo pagesix.com/2019/06/10/cuba-gooding-jr-accused-of-groping-woman-at-nyc-club/

Target Celebrates Gay Pride Month By Grooming Your Kids [Warden] ep. That's the kid's section. But what someone does in their own bedroom is none of my business, am I right? I mean, it's not like anyone wants to turn your kid gay, you goofball bible beater. No. They just want to, you know, present it as an option for kids–a really cool, socially acceptable one that'll earn you group praise and maybe a bit of friendly life coaching from a totally-not-trying-to-have-sex-with-you adult homosexual. It's about sharing and acceptance. Also, it's about being part of a community that accounts for more than 80% of U.S. syphilis cases, but shhhhh! That's bigot talk. Love is love. And you'll be happy to know that proceeds from the sales of these goods will go toward converting more kids for the gay lobby to love rigorously, passionately and often. The items feature the bright, colorful gay rainbow and features words such as "TAKE PRIDE" and "WEAR IT WITH PRIDE". The new line is being rolled out to celebrate "Gay Pride Month" in June. Target is offering to donate 50 percent of the purchase price of any LGBT item to GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network)." "We’re making our message loud and clear: Target proudly stands with the LGBT community through all that we do," said Laysha Ward, an executive with Target. Target also eliminated all gender references in toys and bedding departments and removed "boys" and "girls" signs to promote gender neutrality in its stores. GLSEN? What's that? I'm glad you asked! GLSEN is a group of weirdos, perverts and communists (but I repeat myself) who want to push homosexuality on kindergartners in school. They're very fine people, that I can tell you! Normal and well-adjusted folks, just like you and me! Johnson and Johnson also supports this twisted group. Remember that the next time you're shopping. Here's a screen shot of some of GLSEN's work.

WhatsApp pledges to SUE users over off-platform misbehavior Published time: 11 Jun, 2019 00:28 Edited time: 11 Jun, 2019 07:18 WhatsApp is threatening users who violate its rules with lawsuits, even if the only evidence of “rule-breaking” exists outside of the Facebook-owned messaging app and the only judge is an AI. “WhatsApp will take legal action against those we determine are engaged in or assisting others in abuse… even if that determination is based on information solely available to us off our platform,” the company warned in an ominous FAQ entry posted on Monday. Off-platform evidence of ban-worthy behaviors, including “automated or bulk messaging, or non-personal use,” could trigger not just “technological enforcement” but legal repercussions, the post warned – and woe betide those users caught bragging off-platform about their ability to evade the rules. WhatsApp boasted it can ban users “based on machine-learning classifiers” alone, and will continue to do so. While the announcement repeatedly cited bulk messaging and spamming as key abusive behaviors, users have been banned for less – merely adding people not on a user’s contact list to a group chat or sending messages to unknown users has gotten people booted from the platform. www.rt.com/news/461558-whatsapp-sue-off-platform-abuse/
Google Calls Study Alleging It Scrapes Billions From News Publishers’ Content ‘Inaccurate’ Google allegedly received several billion dollars in revenue in 2018 from scraping news publishers’ content without paying the publisher for that usage, according to a study published Monday, but the company hit back, calling its calculations “inaccurate.” The Silicon Valley company increasingly relies on published news to drive consumer engagement with its products, the News Media Alliance noted in a study. There is between 16% and 40% of news in Google search results, the researchers noted. “News publishers need to continue to invest in quality journalism, and they can’t do that if the platforms take what they want without paying for it. Information wants to be free, but reporters need to get paid,” News Media Alliance President & CEO David Chavern said in a press release attached to the study. Google dismissed the study. “These back of the envelope calculations are inaccurate as a number of experts are pointing out. The overwhelming number of news queries do not show ads. Every month Google News and Google Search drives over 10 billion clicks to publishers’ websites, which drive subscriptions and significant ad revenue,” a company representative told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Traffic from Google Search to news publisher sites has risen since January 2017 by more than 25% to approximately 1.6 billion visits per week in January 2018. News is becoming increasingly important to Google as consumers rely more on the tech titan for their information. The number of unique monthly visitors to Google News in 2018 eclipsed that of major news outlets, according to the study. Chavern suggests Congress should provide a type of “safe harbor for news publishers” as it negotiates for better terms with Google, Facebook and other big tech companies. The News Media Alliance also wants Congress to pass the the so-called Journalism Competition and Preservation Act, which would satisfy many of Chavern’s concerns. Democratic Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island introduced the bill in the House on April 3, while Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota introduced a similar version in the Senate. Meanwhile, media outlets are laying off staff at a breakneck pace. Verizon Media, which owns Yahoo and the HuffPost, slashed roughly 800 jobs, or 7%, of its global workforce in January. BuzzFeed also announced a move to cut 15% of its workforce, including jobs in journalism. Other media outlets followed suit that same month. Digital outlets on the local, national and global level are struggling to keep up in an environment where information is shared for free across a slew of social media platforms, Eric Schiffer, the CEO of Patriarch Equity, told TheDCNF in January. Facebook has received a lion’s share of the criticism, especially from TheNYT, among others. TheNYT’s coverage of Facebook has been almost exclusively negative since the 2016 presidential elections, according to tech researcher Joe Hovde, a full-time data analyst at Residual Thoughts. TheNYT ran ads on Facebook in early January giving users a step-by-step guide on how to slowly pull back from the Silicon Valley company’s platform. www.dailycaller.com/2019/06/10/google-news-industry-revenue/
Kim Jong Un's half-brother was CIA informant before his assassination: report Kim Jong Un’s half-brother was working as a CIA informant before he was brazenly murdered in a Malaysian airport in 2017, according to a report Monday. Kim Jong Nam, the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il’s eldest son, “met on several occasions with agency operatives,” according to the report in The Wall Street Journal. The Journal cited “a person knowledgeable about the matter” in its report. “There was a nexus” between Kim Jong Nam and the intelligence agency, according to the Journal’s source. Little else is known about what Kim Jong Un’s older brother told the feds; however, the report did state he “was almost certainly in contact with security services of other countries, particularly China’s.” The CIA declined to comment to the WSJ. www.foxnews.com/world/kim-jong-un-half-brother-cia-informant-kim-jong-nam-report
Anon comments: The question is, how close was this "half brother" to Kim Jong Un? Was he apart of the govt? He was left out in the open with no protection in Malaysia, so it doesn't seem he was too worried about anyone knowing who he was. Compare that with the paranoia of Kim. You'd think if you were even CLOSE to Kim in any kind of way, you'd have protection and be at least slightly paranoid when leaving the hermit kingdom. So how much info could this guy have actually had? And is this "news" some kind of BS "throw" to get us down the wrong path, or try to pad their anti-Kim narrative? Or, maybe it's a threat to Kim himself.
Every time msm drops info like this you gotta see it as a ploy of some kind. Yes, it fits our Q info, but they aren't releasing their "anon sources" info for no reason. Put a name to the outing Clown and then it has more meat. Anon source? It's a narrative they want out.

Why does he still have clearance? If he has access to classified information, how are these 'private briefings with Democrats on Iran' not considered plotting against the current administration?

Interesting connection, considering…
Wholesale prices barely rise in May, inflation poses little threat FRB not getting the inflation it so dearly wants-and needs. Yearly increase in producer price index slows to 1.8% from 2.2%. The numbers: The wholesale cost of goods and services barely rose in May, reflecting easing inflationary pressures in the U.S. amid slower economic growth and fading gasoline prices. The producer price index edged up 0.1% last month, the government said Tuesday, matching the MarketWatch forecast. The increase in wholesale prices over the past year, meanwhile, slowed to 1.8% from 2.2% in April, and they’re down sharply from a recent high of 3.1% last summer. Another measure of wholesale costs known as core PPI rose 0.4% last month, largely because of an increase in the volatile cost of services. The 12-month rate climbed to 2.3% from 2.2%, but it’s still sharply lower compared to last fall when it topped 3%. What happened: The cost of services rose 0.3% in May, led by a sharp increase in the prices for guest room rentals. Hospital inpatient and outpatient care prices also rose. The wholesale cost of goods dropped 0.2%, however. Wholesale gasoline prices fell 1.7% and food costs slipped 0.3%. Food costs have declined in four of the past five months. Nor does there appear to be much if any inflation in the pipeline. The 12-month cost of partly finished materials turned negative for the first time since 2016 and the price or raw materials have tumbled almost 9% in the past year — also a nearly three-year low. Big picture: The U.S. faces little threat from inflation even after slapping tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imports, paving the way for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates if the economy gets any weaker. A more closely followed measure of inflation, the consumer price index, is likely to show more of the same when the figures for May are released on Wednesday. this does not take into account food,fuel and major aspects of housing costs. www.marketwatch.com/story/wholesale-prices-barely-rise-in-may-ppi-shows-and-inflationary-pressures-muted-2019-06-11?
NBC News Sets Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Rachel Maddow Among First Democratic Debate Moderators variety.com/2019/tv/news/nbc-news-democratic-debate-lester-holt-rachel-maddow-1203239342/ JUNE 11, 2019 7:31AM PT NBC News will deploy some of its best known anchors to moderate coverage of the first debate among candidates for the Democratic nomination for president, and air the event for two hours across not only MSNBC, but on its Telemundo and NBC broadcast networks, underscoring the intent interest in the run-up to the 2020 race for the White House. Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow and José Díaz-Balart will moderate the two-hour, back-to-back prime time live events from the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami, Florida on June 26 and June 27. NBC said Holt will moderate the first hour, with Guthrie and Diaz-Balart appearing alongside him. He will also appear in the second hour, with Todd and Maddow moderating. Twenty candidates will take part over the course of two evenings, with ten appearing on stage each night. RELATED NBC Joins TV's Streaming-News Wave With 'NBC News Now' Broadcast News Chiefs Vow Deeper Coverage in 2020 Election To qualify, candidates need to register 1% support in three qualified polls, or have 65,000 unique donors to their campaign, with a minimum of 200 different donors in at least 20 states. If the field widens beyond 20 candidates, the Democratic National Committee expects to use a series of tiebreakers to determine who makes the cut. All the nation’s news outlets are prepared for a surge of viewer absorption in the election. CBS News NBC News and ABC News have suggested they intend to have more reporters on the ground in various parts of the U.S. to better gauge sentiment for every candidate. “We may have more journalists deployed in the field than at any other time in this news organization,” said Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC News, speaking at a “Future of News” conference organized by the Financial Times. Most early debates tend to air on cable, not on broadcast networks. But the field of Democratic candidates is so wide and interest in the election believed to be so high that NBC has decided to make the event available across multiple outlets, and not just MSNBC, which aims at news aficionados and, in primetime at least, progressive minded viewers.
This could change the landscape of 2020 and beyond… It creeps me out knowing that the libs will stop at nothing to try and steal the vote. Agreement Among the States to Elect the President by National Popular Vote The National Popular Vote interstate compact would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The bill ensures that every vote, in every state, will matter in every presidential election. The bill is a constitutionally conservative, state-based approach that preserves the Electoral College, state control of elections, and the power of the states to control how the President is elected. The National Popular Vote bill has been enacted by 15 jurisdictions possessing 189 electoral votes, including 5 small jurisdictions (RI, VT, HI, DC, DE), 6 medium- size states (MD, MA, NM, WA, CT, CO), and four big states (NJ, IL, NY, CA). The bill will take effect when enacted by states with 81 more electoral votes. The bill has passed at least one chamber in 9 additional states with 82 more electoral votes (AR, AZ, ME, MI, MN, NC, NV, OK, OR). A total of 3,357 state legislators from all 50 states have endorsed it. www.nationalpopularvote.com/written-explanation How is this even possible? Oregon ‘National Popular Vote’ Legislation Passes; Governor Expected To Sign On April 9, the Oregon state Senate voted 17-12 to pass legislation (SB 870) to join the National Popular Vote (NPV) compact. On Wednesday, the state House of Representatives voted 37-22 in favor of the legislation. The bill is now headed to the desk of Democratic Governor Kate Brown. Nikki Fisher, the governor’s deputy press secretary, told HuffPost: “The Governor has always believed that every vote matters and supported National Popular Vote since 2009 as Secretary of State.” truepundit.com/oregon-national-popular-vote-legislation-passes-governor-expected-to-sign/
POTUS is on top of this development… kxlh.com/cnn-us-politics/2019/06/11/exclusive-trump-campaign-considering-putting-resources-in-oregon/ www.cnn.com/2019/06/11/politics/oregon-donald-trump-campaign-election-2020/ Exclusive: Trump campaign considering putting resources in Oregon The Trump campaign is considering putting resources into Oregon, CNN has learned, a state where Hillary Clinton beat the President by 11 percentage points in 2016. In fact, Oregon is so blue that it has not voted for a Republican for president since 1984. But the Trump campaign is flush with cash and is looking for ways to spend its money and time wisely while Democrats duke it out for the chance to run against President Donald Trump. CNN obtained a memo to the Trump campaign from pollster Tony Fabrizio about ideas for “expanding the map” to give the President more options for getting the 270 electoral votes needed to win the re-election, where he mentions looking at Oregon. In the memo, Fabrizio maintains that New Hampshire, New Mexico and Nevada — all states that Trump lost in 2016 — are now “highly competitive.” Those are three states where the Trump campaign already has resources on the ground. Same goes for Minnesota, another state where Clinton beat Trump in 2016, but Fabrizio says to “keep an eye on” this cycle.
F-35 Production Deal is Largest in DOD History; Block 4 Contract Also Inked The Defense Department and Lockheed Martin have reached a tentative agreement on the next lot of F-35s, with options for a multi-year buy worth about $34 billion for 478 aircraft total, including foreign partners and customers. The agreement covers production Lot 12, with options for Lots 13 and 14. The first lot will include 157 aircraft, according to a Pentagon statement. The “framework” of the deal would lower the cost of an F-35A to $80 million in Lot 13, a year earlier than initially planned. Under Lot 11, the aircraft cost $89.2 million each. “This is a historic milestone for the F-35 enterprise, and marks the largest procurement in the history of the department,” Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition Ellen Lord said in a statement. www.airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2019/June%202019/F-35-Production-Deal-is-Largest-in-DOD-History-Block-4-Contract-Also-Inked.aspx
Get Ready a outbreak is coming and the CDC is doing nothing Hundreds of Illegal Immigrants from Congo and Angola Dropped Off in San Antonio June 10th, 2019 For those of you following along on the Congolese migrant influx in San Antonio, this is what made air on Thursday.

Bridger said the Congolese migrants began to arrive in town on Tuesday. They told Migrant Resource Center workers, they traveled with a group of about 350 migrants through Ecuador to the southern border. “When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said, ‘yea another 200 to 300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio,'” Bridger said. That included Masengi, a Congolese migrant, who didn’t want to have his face on camera but told KENS 5 via Google Translate he arrived to the southern border as an asylum seeker. He said he came to America for security reasons and said, “My family is staying in my country but with the help of the USA I can get it back.” www.cryptogon.com/?p=55182 BENI, Democratic Republic of Congo — When Ebola came to this city in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Janvier Muhindo Mandefu quit farming and got work burying the highly contagious bodies of Ebola victims. But Mr. Muhindo is less afraid of Ebola than of the mourners he encounters at funerals. He and his burial team have been attacked by relatives of the dead, one swinging a hoe. Mourners have shouted at team members, accusing them of stealing the organs of corpses, and have threatened to throw them into the open graves. Last month a mourner brandished a hand grenade, he said, sending everyone scattering and leaving a 3-year-old Ebola victim unburied. “Someone like me can be buried alive,” Mr. Muhindo said as his colleagues hosed down their trucks at the Red Cross compound after another day of burials. This Ebola outbreak in eastern Congo, the second-largest ever recorded, is now spiraling out of control. Despite some early success — helped by a new and effective vaccine — the disease has come roaring back in the past two months. www.nytimes.com/2019/05/19/world/africa/ebola-outbreak-congo.html

Anon puts together some pieces: This is true The US stole the gold that Germany stole But so did Russia So why would we need to pay back Russia's? The DS sold billion's in bonds to Russia on 30 year paper. A bond is very much like a CD, they are in essence loaning the billions to you for 30 years with a rate that can float with the bond market. The Deep state promptly stole this money and used it for who knows what bunkers, expensive jets, houses etc etc. Well Regardless of what you think USA, Russia, and China are the true military powers of the world. Russia had given noice that they were not going to renew the bonds they wanted to take that money and put it into some projects they had coming up. Of course the DS didn't have it. So they did what they always do they wiped up a war and stole. In the vaults under the world Trade Center was tons of gold from the WW2 haul that we took. Germany stole and Japan stole and when we over ran them we took the gold as war spoils. That was enough to cover Russia but they also wanted to cover the crime and make more money. They hired Mossad to pull off the diversion and the buildings were really taken down in controlled implosions. George Bush used this as a second Pearl Harbor to start the war on terror and that gives DS tons of ways to make billions.
Developing: Italian Government Roiled After Country Used by Obama Deep State to Spy on Trump Campaign – 2 Intel Chiefs Fired Jim Hoft by Jim Hoft June 11, 2019 119 Comments George Papadopoulos and Joseph Mifsud Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud was used to tie George Papadopoulos to Russia by the Mueller team and their mainstream media. After Mifsud was interviewed by the Mueller team he went missing. In April he was finally located in Rome next to the US embassy. It’s time to ask him who he was working for. It wasn’t Russia. It was the US. As we noted in February, candidate Trump’s unpaid volunteer George Papadopoulos was indicted by the Mueller team for lying. We are finding out about the FBI’s involvement in setting him up. The mainstream media and the FBI, DOJ and Mueller team all wanted to connect President Trump to Russia so they set up Papadopoulos and then claimed that he met with Russians. The only problem is that the Russian was not a Russian – he’s a Maltese professor, Joseph Mifsud. The entire connections in London were a set up. The FBI set up Papadopoulos with Mifsud who went missing after being interviewed by the Mueller team. Recently Mifsud was located in Rome … next to the US Embassy. In late April Papadopoulos told FOX News that President Trump called the Italian Prime Minister this week after he broke the news about Professor Mifsud being located in Rome. www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/06/developing-italian-government-roiled-after-country-used-by-obama-deep-state-to-spy-on-trump-campaign-2-intel-chiefs-fired/
Iran agrees to release US resident to Lebanon ran will release a U.S. permanent resident back to his homeland of Lebanon after imprisoning him for four years, according to the Associated Press. Nizar Zakka, who had been held since 2015, was released onto an airplane accompanied by Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Abbas, according to the AP, citing an official in Beirut. Zakka, an internet freedom advocate, was arrested attempting to fly out of Tehran after attending a conference. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2016 under accusations of being a spy for the U.S., which his family and friends have denied. Zakka, a resident of Washington, D.C., is the leader of the Arab ICT Organization, a trade group comprising 13 countries that lobbies for information technology in the region. thehill.com/policy/international/middle-east-north-africa/447860-iran-agrees-to-release-us-resident-to-lebanon
The gay mafia?? www.breitbart.com/faith/2019/06/11/vatican-whistleblower-says-gay-mafia-is-blocking-needed-reforms/ The former Vatican ambassador to the United States told the Washington Post a gay mafia among Church leadership is blocking attempts to seriously address clerical sexual abuse. In an extensive interview, snippets of which were published Monday, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò said that the sexual abuse crisis would be “far less severe” if the “problem of homosexuality in the priesthood were honestly acknowledged and properly addressed.” “Given the overwhelming evidence, it is mind-boggling that the word ‘homosexuality’ has not appeared once, in any of the recent official documents of the Holy See” dealing with clerical sexual abuse, Viganò told the Post. Instead, a “gay mafia” among the bishops, seeking to protect themselves, was “sabotaging all efforts at reform,” he said. Late last August, Archbishop Viganò released a shocking 11-page report declaring that in 2013 he had personally informed Pope Francis of the serial homosexual abuse of then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, but that the pope had ignored the information, elevating McCarrick to a position of influence in the Vatican. In that report, Viganò linked the clerical sex abuse crisis as well as coverups by bishops to an extensive “homosexual network” in the Church. “These homosexual networks, which are now widespread in many dioceses, seminaries, religious orders, etc., act under the concealment of secrecy and lies,” he said, “and strangle innocent victims and priestly vocations, and are strangling the entire Church.” In his allegation, the archbishop did not shy away from naming names. According to Viganò, Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio and Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, for example, “belong to the homosexual current in favor of subverting Catholic doctrine on homosexuality.” In January 2015, Pope Francis appointed Cardinal Coccopalmerio as head of a review board for appeals from clergy found guilty of sexual abuse of minors. In August 2016, the pope named Archbishop Paglia President of the Pontifical Academy for Life and Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. Many of the pope’s allegedly mistaken appointments were made on the basis of McCarrick’s recommendations, Viganò asserted. “He followed the advice of someone he knew well to be a pervert, thus multiplying exponentially with his supreme authority the evil done by McCarrick. And how many other evil pastors is Francis still continuing to prop up in their active destruction of the Church!” he said.
Department of Justice Office of Public Affairs FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Attorney General William P. Barr Announces the Creation of a Working Group on Prosecuting Gun Crimes to Stop and Reduce Domestic Violence "With so many domestic disputes escalating from bruises to bullets, we felt we needed to supplement our state and local partners’ efforts to curb domestic violence with federal prosecutions,” said U.S. Attorney Nealy Cox. “We hope our initial cases send a message to convicted abusers: Not only could the Justice Department theoretically prosecute abusers for firearm possession – they have and they will.” Federal law has long barred convicted felons, as well as individuals subject to certain domestic violence protective orders or convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors, from possessing firearms. Offenders with domestic violence in their past pose a remarkably high risk of homicide. Research shows that abusers with a gun in the home are five times more likely to kill their partners than abusers who don’t have that same access to a firearm. And according to one recent study, more than half of America’s mass shootings are cases of extreme domestic violence. www.justice.gov/opa/pr/attorney-general-william-p-barr-announces-creation-working-group-prosecuting-gun-crimes-stop
Senate Democrats: Americans ‘Have Obligation’ to Give Amnesty to Foreigners A group of Senate Democrats say American citizens “have an obligation” to give amnesty to potentially millions of foreign nationals living in the United States who they say have “earned the right” to be in the country. After House Democrats and seven House Republicans passed an expansive amnesty to any illegal alien claiming to have arrived in the U.S. as a child, Senate Democrats are now demanding the Senate do the same. Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Tim Kaine (D-VA) are urging the GOP-controlled Senate to pass their amnesty plan, which gives nearly half a million foreign nationals living in the U.S. on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) a pathway to American citizenship. Feinstein said the 440,000 foreign nationals who would receive the amnesty have “earned the right” to permanently stay in the U.S. “The Senate needs to follow the House’s lead and pass these important protections for immigrant families who have been living and working in the United States for decades,” Feinstein said. “After fleeing wars and natural disasters, these families have established deep roots in our communities and earned the right to remain together here in the United States.” www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/09/senate-democrats-americans-have-obligation-give-amnesty-foreigners/

The plan failed, miserably… Dean was showcased for what he is, a political prop for the left-wing base of MSNBC moonbats.

Building a Wall and a Fort Fort Trump - US Military Base in Poland Announcement coming from the White House Wednesday June 12, 2019. Prepare to man Fort Trump? US has made Poland a ‘very serious robust offer’ for base WARSAW, Poland — An aide to Polish President Andrzej Duda says that negotiations to increase the U.S. military presence in Poland have concluded and were a success. The comments came days before Duda’s visit in Washington with President Donald Trump this week. Citing concerns over Russia’s military activity, Poland has been pushing for an increased, permanent presence of U.S. troops in the country, currently numbering around 4,000, in a rotational system. Duda aide Krzysztof Szczerski said Monday the negotiations on what Poland has dubbed “Fort Trump” would provide for an increase in the “quality and quantity” of U.S. presence in the NATO country. He said the deal still needs formal approval from both presidents. An announcement is expected when Trump hosts Duda for talks Wednesday at the White House. www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2019/06/10/fort-trump-talks-conclude-for-higher-american-troop-presence-in-poland/
Regarding Q #354, it seems the noted people are connected via Susan Rice and the Federal Reserve. Susan Rice has held a huge number of positions including many dealing with crisis areas.
Follow the husbands. Another Hint: Ian Cameron McKinsey & Company Clowns In America. Dr. Emmett J. Rice. Federal Reserve. Everyone is connected. How about a nice game of chess? Q Ian Cameron- Husband to Susan Rice & former executive producer with ABC News McKinsey & Company- Susan Rice began her career as a management consultant with McKinsey and Company in Toronto, Canada
Clowns In America-always getting their hands in everything shady Dr. Emmett J. Rice- was a governor of the Federal Reserve System, a Cornell University economics professor, expert in the monetary systems of developing countries and the father of Susan Rice. Rice was Deputy Director, then Acting Director, of the Treasury Department's Office of Developing Nations. From 1966 to 1970, he was U.S. Alternate Executive Director for the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank), the International Development Association, and the International Finance Corporation.

Well anon, I did a dig on pops and Nigeria. Dr. Emmett:"From 1960 to 1962, he took leave from Cornell to work as an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and he then went on to be an adviser to the Central Bank of Nigeria in Lagos in 1963 and 1964." This was shortly after independence and the Central Bank gained control: "The G.D Paton report, an offshoot of the inquiry became the cornerstone of the first banking legislation in the country: the banking ordinance of 1952. The ordinance was designed to prevent non viable banks from mushrooming, and to ensure orderly commercial banking. The banking ordinance triggered a rapid growth in the industry, with growth also came disappointment. By 1958, a few number of banks had failed. To curtail further failures and to prepare for indigenous control, in 1958, a bill for the establishment of Central Bank of Nigeria was presented to the House of Representatives of Nigeria. The Act was fully implemented on July 1, 1959, when the Central Bank of Nigeria came into full operation. In April 1960, the Bank issued its first treasury bills. In May 1961 the Bank launched the Lagos Bankers Clearing House, which provided licensed banks a framework in which to exchange and clear checks rapidly. By July 1, 1961 the Bank had completed issuing all denominations of new Nigerian notes and coins and redeemed all of the West African Currency Board's previous money." He was an economic hitman jamesclear.com/book-summaries/confessions-of-an-economic-hitman After Emmett left the IMF's man Clement Nyong Isong Advisor International Monetary Fund 15 August 1967 22 September 1975 Ran the Central Bank during it's civil was and the Oil Boom driven 70's
Digging through long winded .pdf's of World Bank Policy for the late 60's is not in the cards, and I'm sure his stint on the Treasury's Developing Countries board was rubber stamping harmful loans to third world countries. He seems to have left the FRB (Fed) abruptly, but I can't find much other than a clip from UPI re: his retirement: "Rice, 66, said in a letter to Reagan Thursday that his reasons for resigning were 'entirely personal' and that he plans to return to private life after he leaves office Dec. 31. Decisions by the Fed board, which sets monetary policy and regulates the money supply, have a major, albeit frequently indirect, impact on inflation, interest rates and economic growth. Rice, appointed by President Carter, has been a board member since June 1979 and his term was not due to expire until January 1990." So there's that. His final years on the fed saw him working with Undeveloped Countries. The screen caps show him ensconced by LBJ into the bankers power groups.
Order of Canada recipient Peter Dalglish found guilty of child sex assault in Nepal www.cbc.ca/news/world/peter-dalglish-conviction-nepal-1.5170122 Aid worker's legal team intends to appeal, calling the verdict 'a miscarriage of justice' Nazim Baksh · CBC News · Posted: Jun 10, 2019 9:34 PM ET | Last Updated: 5 hours ago Peter Dalglish, an Order of Canada recipient who has been lauded for his charity work, has been convicted of sexually assaulting two boys, ages 11 and 14, in Nepal. (YouTube) After spending more than a year at an overcrowded jail near Kathmandu, prominent Canadian aid worker Peter Dalglish has been found guilty of sexually assaulting children in Nepal. His Canadian lawyer, Nader Hasan, said Dalglish's family and friends are devastated by the verdict and that his legal team plans to file an appeal. Hasan said there is no clear timeline when the judge will issue a written verdict or when sentencing will take place — both of which have to happen before he can file an appeal. Dalglish, 61, could be facing a prison sentence of 10 years or longer, Hasan said.
House Armed Services markup to bring Space Force closer to reality HASC Chairman Adam Smith: “We have an agreement on an amendment" to create a space force or space corps. WASHINGTON — House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said he is confident his committee on Wednesday will vote to authorize a separate military branch for space. “We have an agreement on an amendment that will be added in the full committee markup,” Smith said on Monday during a breakfast meeting with reporters. In the chairman mark of the committee’s version of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, Smith did not weigh in on the Trump administration’s Space Force proposal. Instead he worked out a deal with the leaders of the HASC Strategic Forces subcommittee — Chairman Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) and Ranking Member Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) — to introduce an amendment proposing a separate space organization in the Defense Department. Smith suggested the committee might call it a Space Corps, rather than Space Force. A corps is what the committee proposed in the 2018 NDAA. The amendment that will be offered by Strategic Forces is “pretty much what we did two years ago,” said Smith. “I’m in agreement with Cooper and Rogers. spacenews.com/house-armed-services-markup-to-bring-space-force-closer-to-reality/
Trump leaves Congress in dark on Mideast deployment to counter Iran The Donald Trump administration has yet to inform Congress on how long it will keep troops, a carrier group, bombers and missile defense batteries in the Middle East that were recently sent to the region to counter threats from Iranian-backed proxy groups, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee said today. Just hours after the commander of US forces in the region publicly hinted at plans to restore a larger American military presence to the Middle East, Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., said the Pentagon had not “given us any indication of how long this is going to last or where they think they see it going.” Smith, who is tasked with overseeing the Pentagon’s strategy to shift more troops and weapons to counter China’s growing military power, conceded that the State Department’s so-called “maximum pressure” campaign was having an economic effect on Iran. But he wondered whether the US administration’s approach could provoke an attack from Iran. “If we’re backing them into this corner, what do we expect to get out of it? What is the negotiation? What do we want from Iran?” Smith told a gathering of defense reporters in Washington. “Do we just want a long-term battle, long-term stalemate? What’s the next step? If Iran feels existentially threatened, there’s a distinct likelihood that they’re going to lash out. And if they lash out, how do we respond?” www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2019/06/trump-leaves-congress-dark-iran-deployment.html
