Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday knocked reports that President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was going to be moved into solitary confinement in her district, calling the punishment “torture.” “Paul Manafort is being sent to solitary confinement in my district - Rikers Island. A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That’s what solitary confinement is. Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary,” the New York Democrat tweeted.

Don't be fooled: What she really wants is for him to be put into the general population to be murdered. She (and Mueller) want him "Whitey Bulgered" before Trump can Pardon him and he can start telling folks about his persecution.

Agree with #3. Who ordered Manafort's transfer to Riker's Island? This sounds suspicious.

FTA … quote … Manafort should be released, along with ALL PEOPLE being held in solitary,” the New York Democrat tweeted. Words hers, capitalization mine. While we're at it let's release all people being held in evil prisons and put them to work corking cows.

The Boston Tea Party was a political protest that occurred at Griffin’s Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts. American colonists frustrated and angry at Britain for imposing “taxation without representation,” dumped 342 chests of British tea into the harbor.

President Donald Trump telegraphed to the American people that Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion hoax is going international. The first hint that something of an alliance existed between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the international reach of the Deep State was provided by Michael Morell. Morell has served as both acting and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (2010-2013).

During the Japanese bombardment of Shanghai in 1932, the Austrian essayist Karl Kraus was anguishing over the placement of commas in a column. It might seem futile at such a moment, he told a friend, but “if those who are obliged to look after commas had always made sure they were in the right place, then Shanghai would not be burning.” George Orwell made a kindred observation about the importance of having the courage to call things by their real names. Euphemism, the counterfeit of good manners, is the enemy of truth, which is the only ally worth having.

In June of 2016, the British people voted to reject the European Union’s authoritarian rule over the UK and reassert their sovereignty. And so, Brexit was a big winner at the polls. But two years later, Britain remains a vassal state to the bureaucratic minions of the EU. All due to the inaction of the ruling Conservative Party, also known as the Tories. A party once shepherded by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who said: “I had the patriotic conviction that, given great leadership of the sort I heard from Winston Churchill in the radio broadcasts to which we listened, there was almost nothing that the British people could not do.”
Ex-FBI Lawyer: Carter Page FISA application approved in unusual way by McCabe, Yates, and Baker 6 replies

A former top lawyer for the FBI described to lawmakers the “unusual” way the surveillance request targeting former Trump campaign associate Carter Page was handled by top leadership at the Justice Department and FBI, according to a transcript released this week. On Aug. 31, 2018, former FBI Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson said she was normally responsible for signing off on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications before they reached the desk of her superiors for approval. Anderson said the “linear path” those applications typically take was upended in October 2016, with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates signing off on the application before she did.

There’s an old saying in sports that “you can’t tell the players without a scorecard.” That same adage applies to Middle East politics. For example, in Saudi Arabia, the English daily newspaper Arab News – or “The Green Flash” as it is called by ex-patriots because of its green-tinted cover pages – reports that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Forces “intercepted and destroyed two missiles launched from Yemen by Iran-aligned Houthi militias on Monday.”

President Trump has directed former White House Counsel Don McGahn to skip a House Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for Tuesday, citing a Justice Department opinion that he cannot be compelled to testify about his official duties -- and, through his legal team, McGahn confirmed Monday evening that he won't appear. The development prompted an obstinate response late Monday from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y.: “We are having the hearing tomorrow and we’re expecting Mr. McGahn to show pursuant to the subpoena."

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she’d like to see President Donald Trump “in prison” as she clashed with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting on Tuesday night over whether to launch impeachment proceedings. (Snip) “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Instead of impeachment, Pelosi still prefers to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes, according to the sources. They said she was expressing solidarity with pro-impeachment Democrats

Let’s be clear about a few things regarding “carbon taxes”. First, the system of taxing carbon emissions, also known as “cap-n-trade”, has absolutely nothing to do with climate change. Second a “carbon tax” is the holy grail for the totalitarian globalist world view. The concept of a tax on carbon emissions was developed inside the same financial network of multinational monetary interests that control the current global trade system. Powerful financial interests directly connected to The World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Trade Organization (WTO), together with global banking interests connected to Wall Street and

Maybe someone in his camp can gently give him a shiv. I mean, shove,” Bette Midler said on Tuesday night. The actress was piggybacking on a tweet by Michael Moore, who had ranted about President Trump’s surprise visit to McLean Bible Church in Virginia on Sunday. “Seriously, WTF is this?

President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports until Mexico takes serious action to control its border with the U.S. shocked the Washington Beltway, Wall Street, and the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City. These centers of financial and political power, lulled by a U.S. Congress that has refused to act and activist federal judges who have stymied Trump’s border control efforts at every step, were jolted awake by Trump’s ultimatum. But they should not have been surprised. The president issued a similar threat back in April. And, Trump promised from day one of his presidential campaign that he would make stanching the flow of illegal immigration,
