  1. Once again, our two tiered justice system rears it’s ugly head. Their are unconnected people sitting in jail for way less than this.

    They want Gen. Flynn in jail for far less than this.


    “Accomplice In ‘Largest Data Theft In Senate History,’ Leading To Doxxing Of Republicans During Kavanaugh Hearings, Gets Probation”

    “A former Senate IT aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan, Samantha DeForest Davis, was sentenced to probation Monday for her role in a congressional data heist used to “doxx” Republican senators during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

    Jackson Cosko admitted he stole tens of thousands of documents, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers and the contents of the entire network drive from the New Hampshire Democrat.

    DeForest Davis sold him her office key, wiped his finger prints off keyboards and lied to police. She is now a teacher through Teach For America.

    Federal Judge Thomas F. Hogan sentenced a former Democratic Senate aide to probation Monday for her role in what prosecutors called the “largest data theft in Senate history.”


    And in an unrelated note I’m sure, he served as the head of the FISA court up to 2016, while they were granting bogus warrants on Trump for purely political reasons.


  2. McCabe is caught lying again.




  3. Not a whistleblower.



  4. Huge fallacy and a huge fraud.




  5. Slavery is alive and well, has high tech help, and is flourishing in Islamic countries.


    “Islamic slave markets flourish with high tech help”

    “It has been going on for years; the UN says it is fighting modern slavery, and international civil servants are either corrupt or incompetent, because nothing changes. The BBC has discovered Islamic slave markets on Instagram and other applications.

    A secret investigation by BBC News Arabic revealed that domestic workers are being bought and sold illegally online and that the market is booming, thanks to new technologies.

    Go figure: it is the whites who are being asked to “repair” the slavery of the 18th century while turning a blind eye to the slavery of the 21st century.

    Some of the transactions are carried out on Instagram, owned by Facebook, messages are promoted via hashtags and algorithms, and sales are negotiated via private messages.

    Thousands of women are bought and sold as domestic or other workers.

    Other messages are delivered by approved applications and provided by Google Play and Apple App Store, as well as on e-commerce platform websites.

    “What they are doing is promoting an online slave market,” said Urmila Bhoola, UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery.

    “If Google, Apple, Facebook or other companies host applications like these, they must be held accountable.”

    After being alerted about this, Facebook said it had banned one of the hashtags involved. Google and Apple said they were working with application developers to prevent illegal activities.

    However, the BBC has discovered that there are still many related lists active on Instagram, and other applications available through Apple and Google.

    Slave Market

    Nine out of ten Kuwaiti households have a domestic worker — they come from some of the poorest regions of the world.

    Posing as a newly arrived couple in Kuwait, the BBC’s Arab infiltration team interviewed 57 application users and visited more than a dozen people who were trying to sell them their domestic workers through a popular application called “4Sale”.

    Almost all vendors advocated confiscating women’s passports, locking them in the house, denying them leave and giving them little or no access to a telephone.

    The “4Sale” application made it possible to filter by race, with different price ranges clearly proposed, according to the categories.

    “African worker, clean and smiling,” says one of the announcements.

    Another: “Nepalese who dares to ask for a day off.”

    When talking to the sellers, the undercover team often heard racist comments. “Indians are the dirtiest,” said one of them, describing a woman being advertised.

    Human rights violations? The media don’t care; they’ve decided that Islam is a religion of love.”

  6. So I guess it’s safe to say their claims were bogus.


    “Thousands Of Foreigners Sent Back To Mexico Under Trump Policy Have Given Up Asylum Claims”

    “Before President Donald Trump acted, foreigners who entered the United States illegally and sought to claim asylum were processed and then … released into the United States.

    They were then required to return for a hearing on their status, but that would usually take months, sometimes years.

    Then the Trump administration enacted the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which became known as the “Remain In Mexico” policy. The protocols did just that: foreigners who entered the U.S. illegally were processed, then released into Mexico to await their hearings.

    Instead of waiting, though, thousands of migrants who were returned to Mexico gave up their asylum claims and went home, Fox News reports.

    So far, the administration has returned more than 55,000 migrants to Mexico. The assessment describes the policy as an “indispensable tool in addressing the ongoing crisis at the southern border and restoring integrity to the immigration system.” It says that it has completed almost 13,000 cases as of Oct. 21.

    The new assessment, significantly, cites estimates from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that approximately 20,000 migrants are currently being sheltered in Mexico near the U.S. border as they still seek entry to the U.S. The assessment says that number, though, suggests “a significant proportion of the 55,000+ MPP returnees have chosen to abandon their claims.”

    In an assessment of the Migrant Protection Protocols filed on Monday, the government said “At peak of the crisis in May 2019, there were more than 4,800 aliens crossing the border daily — representing an average of more than three apprehensions per minute.”

    But those numbers have plunged since the Trump administration enacted MPP, according to the assessment:

    • Since a recent peak of more than 144,000 in May 2019, total enforcement actions — representing the number of aliens apprehended between points of entry or found inadmissible at ports of entry — have decreased by 64%, through September 2019.”


    Thank you President Trump, for doing your job, unlike Congress.


  7. The anger is justified. This is an abject failure all the way around.


    “Californians’ anger at politicians and PG&E intensifies as wildfires and blackouts continue

    Taxpayers and business owners are unhappy the new normal”

    “Another wildfire has erupted near Los Angeles, forcing thousands to evacuate and more power blackouts.

    Mandatory evacuations for about 8,000 people in the Los Angeles area are in place after a wildfire began late Thursday before quickly spreading overnight. The Maria Fire is the latest addition to California’s busy 2019 fire season.

    In a press conference at noon local time, officials said the fire had grown to burn nearly 9,000 acres. The fire started on Thursday at 6:14 p.m. local time affecting 750 acres within an hour. However, it spread overnight to encompass more than 8,000 acres.

    The continuing combination of wildfires and blackouts has Californians furious at both politicians and the power companies. There are now reports that Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) workers are being threatened and run off the road by frustrated customers.

    PG&E officials have described numerous incidents of workers being targeted. Last week, CEO Bill Johnson told reporters a PG&E worker’s car was apparently shot at with a pellet gun in Glenn County. He and Andy Vesey, president of the utility, have been pleading with customers to stop harassing company employees.

    “I know the anger’s there but please, please don’t take it out on the people in the field,” Vesey said Monday.

    PG&E workers have been inspecting power lines to ensure they are still safe to operate despite the high winds and to turn power back on in communities where power was cut.

    And while Governor Gavin Newsom tries to redirect the blame to the power companies and their executives, Newsom and the Democratic Party’s green policies are cited by many to be a significant contributing factor to this disastrous situation.

    Matt Shupe, a Republican political consultant in California, argued that while the governor has done what he can to combat the wildfires, including declaring a state of emergency tapping into state and federal funds, the risk of wildfires could have been decreased if Newsom and state Democrats had taken a different approach with environmental policies.

    In their natural state, forests are regularly thinned by fire but the billions of dollars that the state spends fighting wildfires and restrictions on logging have allowed forests to accumulate an overload of vegetation and dead trees.

    “Newsom prides himself on being the most environmentally friendly politician,” Shupe told Fox News. “But there needs to be a more pragmatic approach than just leaving these trees to turn into tinder.”

    Newsom is now trying to appease those unhappy with his governorship by designating one of his top aides as his “energy czar” to oversee the state’s utilities.”


  8. Envy is an ugly thing.


    “Trump derangement syndrome (TDS) is a mental disorder in which a person has effectively been driven insane due to his hatred of Donald Trump, to the point where he abandons all logic and reason. Such people are impervious to facts that contradict their preconceived notions of the president.

    As to a syndrome, it’s a group of symptoms that consistently occur together and indicate the presence of a particular mental or physical disease. For example, symptoms for the onset of diabetes include things like increased thirst and urination, insulin resistance, high belly fat, blurred vision, and so on.

    One of the symptoms of TDS is envy. It is one of the main causes for driving many TDS sufferers over the edge. When speaking of envy, however, one should make a distinction between it and jealousy, as the two are commonly used interchangeably. Defining jealousy, sociologist Helmut Schoeck writes in Envy: A Theory of Social Behavior, “Basically, jealousy can be defined as a heightened emotional state for either the craving for something another person has or the fear of losing something to another.” As such, jealousy can be constructive. For example, if a man is jealous that his neighbor received a promotion at work, it could spur him to work harder to earn one of his own.

    Envy is different. It is far darker, which is why traditional Christian teaching lists envy, not jealousy, as one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Peter Kreeft, a professor of philosophy at Boston College, writes in Back to Virtue,

    Envy is deadly because it is demonic. The ancient Book of Wisdom says, “By the envy of the devil, death came into the world” (2:24). Pride and envy are Satan’s own special sins. Envy is horrible because it comes straight from Hell.

    Even Mohammed tells his followers to” “Keep far away from envy” and that no Muslim can go to Paradise if his heart is filled with envy.

    So what is envy?

    Envy leads a person to hate another just for having or achieving something good. As Schoeck puts it: “[e]nvious is defined as a disgruntled emotional state arising from the possessions or achievements of another, a spiteful wish that the other should lose them.” This hatred for the success of another stems from the belief that the person doing the envying is not capable or competent enough to achieve a similar success. His goal therefore becomes not to gain what the other has as in the case of jealousy, but to destroy it. In this process, a person’s mental state is so disordered that he is even willing to destroy himself if it will hurt the person of his envy.

    Envy is a pure evil. It is not an exaggeration to say it afflicts the NeverTrumps, the entire Left, and a large segment of the Democratic Party. Trump’s opponents hate him not for his mistakes, tweets, or manners, but for his achievements — achievements they themselves could never produce. “


  9. Maria Bartiromo and Lee Smith, the journalist and author of “The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History”, discuss his book.


  10. You have a very good virtual Sunday School class here. It is good to see the comraderie and the prayers for each other. Politics has become very hard for conservatives to discuss in the last three years. That isn’t just true here. We have seen schisms at National Review and at many college Republican clubs, but politics is really not that important.


  11. Wow. Such blockbuster journalism right there….. 🙄

    He’s sure to get a Pulitzer for this hard hitting investigative….. spelling nazism… or whatever it is.
