Prisoner Assange
American Spectator, by Jed Babbin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/15/2019 1:23:14 PM

WikiLeaks founder and chieftain Julian Assange was tossed out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London into the hands of British police last week. Assange is wanted on charges of sexual assault in Sweden and charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion in the U.S. He allegedly helped Army private Chelsea (née Bradley) Manning illegally obtain a password that led Manning to leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Assange for WikiLeaks to publish. Both Sweden and the U.S. have requested that Assange be extradited to face justice. It’s not clear which extradition request

Part of Trump´s plan.

Assange will be testifying all about Hillary.

He´s a journalist, and will be free to walk afterwards.

Are you ready for what is coming?

I am.

That´s odd. I heard last year the Swedes had dropped the charges.

So has Assange tripped his wire . . . er . . . tripped over his tripwire . . . um . . . loosed the hounds of hell by releasing all this top secret incriminating evidence yet?

It´s not about the Swedes dropping charges.

It´s about Hillary, the DNC and Seth Richards.

Maybe even Justice Antonin Scalia´s murder.

Hope we learn what happened to Seth Rich. The CIA secrets are important but are at the service of Democrats, e.g., Valerie Plame case.

Why the Census Citizenship Question Matters
Real Clear Politics, by Mike Hunter    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/24/2019 5:30:17     Post Reply
Much noise has been made about reinstating a citizenship question on the 2020 census, the subject of Tuesday’s Supreme Court arguments. The objections to the citizenship question revolve around unjustified hysteria and the unfortunate, but growing, notion that citizenship doesn’t matter. As attorney general of Oklahoma, I filed an amicus curiae brief joined by 16 other states in support of the citizenship question, in part to bring some sober thinking that should quell the unreasonable panic. Let’s start with the Constitution: It gives Congress the power to conduct the “Enumeration …

Obama crony Eric Holder should stop

I hereby nominate Eric Holder for the inaugural Nobel Prize for Chutzpah. Obama’s initial attorney general, the first black American to hold that office, has a ton of nerve to lecture Attorney General William Barr about releasing the Mueller Report. “The attorney general of the United States is the people’s lawyer, not the president’s lawyer,” Holder said Thursday in Chicago’s Rogers Park district. “You have a responsibility to run the Justice Department in a way that is not political.” This is not the same Holder who served Obama.

Elizabeth Warren may be the least jolly member of the Senate, but she is nonetheless offering up her best Santa Claus impersonation as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination, complete with a trillion-dollar-a-decade student-loan giveaway — to be paid for by those on her naughty list. Senator Warren proposes to pay off Americans’ student loans in a tiered fashion: Up to $50,000 in bailouts for those earning up to $100,000 a year, gradually phased out to $0.00 for those earning $250,000 a year or more. That would eliminate all student debt for about 75 percent of borrowers

Democrats face Catch-22 with
Trump impeachment strategy
The Hill [DC], by Mike Lillis and Cristina Marcos    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/24/2019 5:22:08     Post Reply
Speaker Nancy Pelosi´s (D-Calif.) near-term effort to tamp down talk of impeaching President Trump could have the paradoxical effect of building support for that very step. Pelosi and Democratic leaders this week launched a series of aggressive investigations into the myriad allegations facing the president, many stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller´s recently released report on Russia´s 2016 election interference. The strategy is designed, in part, to dampen the growing calls for impeachment — a move Pelosi considers premature — by assuring her troops that party leaders have no intention of letting Trump off the hook.

Mueller’s ‘Scarlet Letter’ Impeachment Road Map

Nathaniel Hawthorne, call your office. Hester Prynne, your fictional protagonist, had a scarlet letter “A” imprinted on her dress, to wear in public and thus advertise to the end of her life her adulterous relationship. Hester was ostracized, a punishment visited on Donald Trump by various public- and private-life segments of the Never Trump coalition: academics, Hollywood and above all, left-wing mainstream press. Hester, doing penance to the end of her life, stuck to her knitting; Trump, for the remainder of his first term, and perhaps, for a full second term, plans to stick to his — being president.

If you had told me in the spring of 2016 that three years later I’d be touting the merits of the Bernie Sanders campaign—taking flak from Hillary Clinton supporters for not being loyal enough to her—I would have laughed and asked what alternate reality you lived in. But life and politics have a way of taking unexpected turns, and here I am writing about the considerable strengths Sanders brings to the 2020 election. I do so not to endorse Sanders or to minimize the large and diverse Democratic field. It is early in the primary

The Perversion of the Endangered Species Act
Real Clear Policy, by Cody J. Wisniewski    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/23/2019 5:39:22     Post Reply
No good deed goes unpunished. Similarly, it seems no well-intentioned piece of legislation is ever used as intended. This could not be more true than when it comes to the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (“ESA”). In 1972, then-President Nixon charged Congress with establishing a “stronger law to protect endangered species of wildlife.” President Nixon wanted the federal government to be able to step in earlier to aid in the recovery of endangered species and, for the first time, to make “shooting, trapping, or other taking of endangered species,” a federal offense. Congress responded to the president

To appreciate the significance of recent events at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts and at the University of Arizona in Tucson, it helps to recall briefly some landmark moments in the College Administrator Hall of Shame. Claremont McKenna College, October 2015: a Hispanic student writes a lachrymose oped denouncing Claremont’s “western, white, cisheternormative upper- to upper-middle class values” that, she says, make her and other minority admits feel out of place. The dean of students thanks the student for her oped and asks if she would be willing to meet with Claremont’s administrators to help them “better serve students,

Impeachment? Not so fast without
missing element of criminal intent

Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/23/2019 5:06:43     Post Reply
The release of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller has unleashed a furious debate within the Democratic Party over the need to commence impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Mueller was anything but subtle in his pointed discussion of how Congress can deal with the “corrupt exercise of the powers of office” within “our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.” In writing those words, Mueller put Democrats in Congress in a more uncomfortable position than he did Trump. Indeed, Trump seems quite satisfied with defining victory as avoiding indictment.

Did you know the United States leads the world in clean air? As I walk the halls of the Capitol, meeting with members of Congress and their staff about the energy policies that help and hurt our country’s future, I’m shocked how many people don’t know and can’t believe this fact. Over the last 50 years, harmful air pollution known as particulate matter has plummeted. Toxic pollutants like lead, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide are now nearly nonexistent in our air. Ozone is down dramatically. We’re the only highly populated nation in the world to meet the World Health Organization’s

Media pulled off big con
with Russia collusion story
Washington Times, by Charles Hurt    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/22/2019 5:18:14     Post Reply
America got conned again. It was all a big set-up. A ruse. A dirty canard. The whole thing was one giant lie. And everybody peddling it — from House Democratic leaders, to Senate Democrats running for president, to the Senate Republican who reported the whole thing in the first place, to the roaring lions of the Great White Media — knew it was a lie. Sure, there are some — take sleazy lawyer Michael Avenatti, for instance — who are so monumentally stupid that he probably did not know that it was all a big con. It is not uncommon for newbies

While La Cosa Nostra no longer reigns supreme over organized crime, the mob is far from vanquished. Here´s everything you need to know: Is the mob still active? It would have been easy until a few weeks ago to assume Italian-American mobsters were extinct, and that´s exactly how Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali liked it. Investigators say Cali ran the Gambino crime family like a "ghost," conducting business strictly in person to avoid wiretaps, and insisting that his underlings do the same. Yet Cali, 53, was splashed on covers of New York City tabloids in March

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she believes Donald Trump would have been indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe if he weren´t president, though stopped short of calling for his impeachment. Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, he argued during a Q&A session in New York that Mueller’s report “could not be clearer” in making the case Trump tried to obstruct the Russia investigation -- even though Mueller did not come to an explicit conclusion on that question. “I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have

Helen Meigs thinks about climate change. A lot. “It’s always in the back of my mind,” said the Macalester College sophomore. Concern about climate change isn’t rare on campus. In fact, she’s convinced it’s widespread. “My whole generation wonders if we’re getting cheated out of a full future, and we can’t put it out of our minds,” she said. “It’s an anxiety-inducing situation.” That anxiety has a name: climate grief. In 2017, the American Psychological Association recognized the complex mental health burden in people who have experienced losses from natural disasters associated with climate change.

"It can be challenging to be a person of faith who´s also part of the LGBTQ community and yet, to me, the core of faith is regard for one another," Buttigieg said.

A Los Angeles road will officially be renamed in honor of former President Obama on May 4, City Councilman Herb Wesson announced Tuesday. Along with the unveiling of the road’s new name, the councilman will host a street festival with music performances, vendors and food trucks at the intersection of the new Obama Boulevard (currently Rodeo Road) and West Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The name change was first suggested by Wesson in 2017. In his proposal, Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Sports Complex on Rodeo in 2007 when running for president.

Hispanics have “legitimate fear” of the Trump administration and its quest to query Americans about their citizenship on the 2020 Census, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday, as the Supreme Court debated whether President Trump has the power to add the question back in to the decennial count. The government’s lawyer, Solicitor General Noel Francisco, was less than two sentences into his argument when Justice Sotomayor pounced for the first time, keeping up a steady stream of questions suggesting Mr. Trump and his team invented reasons to ask about citizenship, and that Hispanics in particular will refuse to take part, souring

Former President Barack Obama and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were ripped for their failure to use the word "Christian" in their responses to the devastating attacks in Sri Lankan on Sunday, instead referring to those slaughtered as "Easter worshippers." (Video) Not only was it notable that Obama and Clinton both used the term "Easter worshipers" in their reactions, but it was highlighted that the politicos were sure to use the word "Muslim" in responses to the horrific slaughter of Muslims in a New Zealand mosque last month.Suicide bombers targeted churches and hotels on Sunday in Sri Lanka as Christians

De Blasio’s poisonous City Hall reign is distinguished by corruption, laziness and incompetence — but not by rank stupidity. Until today.He wants New York to be “first of any major city on the Earth” to make building owners “clean up your act .?.?. to save energy.”

MANCHESTER, N.H. — There are no policy positions on his website. He has virtually no paid presence in the states that matter most. And his campaign manager is a high school friend with no experience in presidential politics. This is the upstart campaign of Pete Buttigieg , the 37-year-old Indiana mayor who has suddenly become one of the hottest names in the Democrats’ presidential primary season. Yet there is an increasing urgency, inside and outside of the campaign, that his moment may pass if he doesn’t take swift action to build a national organization capable

Starbucks Corp.—recognizing it’s often a safe space for the most vulnerable visitors—has installed needle-disposal boxes in some locations. The coffee giant started adding the boxes in several U.S. markets this January after receiving requests from employees last year, a spokeswoman said. It will add them to any store where employees cite a need, she said. “We are always working with and listening to our partners for ways we can better support them when it comes to issues like these,” Starbucks said in an email, citing “scary situations” and a need to ensure its workers “are out of harm’s way.”
