The CDC has already flown hundreds of American evacuees from Wuhan, China to various cities across the United States, including San Antonio, Texas and Omaha, Nebraska. There, evacuees are being quarantined for 14 days,after which they will be released to return to their homes.
This 14-day quarantine is based on an assumption that this nCoV coronavirus has a maximum 14-day incubation period. But what if that assumption was wrong?
What if some patients actually experienced a 24-day incubation period before showing symptoms?
If that were the case, the CDC would be releasing people into the population 10 days too early, effectively contributing to the outbreak.
Guess what? That’s exactly what’s happening, according to a science paper published on the MedRxIV website, backed by the British Medical Journal and Yale. The study, entitled, “Clinical characteristics of 2019 novel coronavirus infection in China,” is noted as a “preprint” which “has not been peer-reviewed,” but the study notes that incubation periods for the coronavirus vary from zero days to 24 days.
The study was based on 1,099 patients with lab-confirmed 2019-nCoV, gathered from 552 hospitals in 31 provinces, through January 29, 2020, explains the abstract. We’ve posted a backup copy of the original PDF here, just in case MedRxIV removes it or stealth edits the paper.
The median incubation period was noted as 3.0 days. The conclusion of the paper is not good news for the world:
The 2019-nCoV epidemic spreads rapidly by human-to-human transmission. Normal radiologic findings are present among some patients with 2019-nCoV infection. The disease severity (including oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, blood leukocyte/lymphocyte count and chest X-ray/CT manifestations) predict poor clinical outcomes.
Notably, only 1.18% of the patients studied by the researchers had any direct contact with wildlife. Almost everyone in the study caught the virus from other people, underscoring the human-to-human transmission that’s exploding across China.
If the incubation period lasts up to 24 days, then governments all over the world are releasing infected patients after insufficient quarantine…..read rest of the story here

JOHN ROBERTS DESTROYS AMERICAN COURT SYSTEM FOR THE QUEEN

The office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) requested that Facebook and Twitter take down a video that edited together moments from President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address with a clip of her tearing a copy of the speech apart. Both of the social media companies denied her request, citing different reasons.
The video, posted by Trump’s official Twitter account, interspersed the clip of Pelosi ripping the papers at the end of the speech with moments of emotion and standing ovations during the speech. “Powerful American stories ripped to shreds by Nancy Pelosi,” says a text placed at the top of the video.
The speaker’s argument appears to be that some people may get a false impression that she tore the papers in half repeatedly during the speech and not just once at its conclusion.
“The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests,” Pelosi’s Chief of Staff Drew Hammill wrote in a Feb. 7 tweet.
Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh fired back in an emailed statement: “If Nancy Pelosi fears images of her ripping up the speech, perhaps she shouldn’t have ripped up the speech.”
Facebook said the video doesn’t violate its policies regarding deceptive content because those only pertain to content that shows people say or do something they didn’t,” CNBC reported.
Twitter’s new rules against deceptive content are not yet in place and the company said the video doesn’t violate its current rules.
“You may not deceptively share synthetic or manipulated media that are likely to cause harm. In addition, we may label Tweets containing synthetic and manipulated media to help people understand the media’s authenticity and to provide additional context.”
To determine what media are “synthetic or manipulated,” the company would check “whether the content has been substantially edited in a manner that fundamentally alters its composition, sequence, timing, or framing;” whether “any visual or auditory information (such as new video frames, overdubbed audio, or modified subtitles) that has been added or removed;” and “whether media depicting a real person has been fabricated or simulated.”
Twitter said it will start labeling such content on March 5, asking for “patience” as it “will make errors along the way.”
The company wouldn’t speculate on whether the Pelosi video would be censored under the new rules.
The Trump campaign and Pelosi’s office didn’t respond to requests for comment. Twitter and Facebook offered no comment beyond pointing The Epoch Times to their content policies and previous content policy announcements.
Social media companies have repeatedly tightened their content policies. A 2018 internal Google research document titled, “The Good Censor” argued that social media companies have over time moved away from honoring the principles of freedom of expression and moved toward censorship. They have moved themselves away from descriptors such as “neutral,” “aggregator,” and “platform,” to being better described by words such as “politicized,” “editor,” and “publisher,” said the document leaked to Breitbart.
One way that political preferences of social media companies manifest is through their “hate speech” policies, according to Michael Rectenwald, a former liberal studies professor at New York University and author of “Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom.”
The tech companies have centered their “hate speech” rules on countering ideologies of supremacy, but overlook the perils of ideologies of equality, which have proven far deadlier, he said.
The companies “represent leftism—to themselves and their constituencies—as the default no-fault political belief system,” he argued.
Moreover, “hate speech” is a subjective standard impossible to enforce fairly, according to Nadine Strossen, a law professor and former president of the American Civil Liberties Union.
People on the political left are much more likely to call a variety of statements “hateful,” while those on the right tend to call the same statements “offensive, but not hateful,” a 2017 Cato survey found (pdf).

Doctor’s Death From Coronavirus Unleashes Mourning, Fury at Chinese Officials
Updated: February 7, 2020
BEIJING—The death of a young doctor who was reprimanded for warning about China’s new virus triggered an outpouring on Feb. 7 of praise for him and fury that communist authorities put politics above public safety.
In death, Dr. Li Wenliang became the face of simmering anger at the ruling Communist Party’s controls over information and complaints that officials lie about or hide disease outbreaks, chemical spills, dangerous consumer products or financial frauds.
The 34-year-old ophthalmologist died overnight at Wuhan Central Hospital, where he worked and likely contracted the virus while treating patients in the early days of the outbreak.
“A hero who released information about Wuhan’s epidemic in the early stage, Dr. Li Wenliang is immortal,” the China Center for Disease Control’s chief scientist, Zeng Guang, wrote on the Sina Weibo microblog service.
Police in December had reprimanded eight doctors including Li for warning friends on social media about the emerging threat. China’s supreme court later criticized the police, but the ruling party also has tightened its grip on information about the outbreak.
Weibo users have left hundreds of thousands of messages below Li’s last post.
A post by one of Li’s coworkers, an emergency room nurse, said the freezing Wuhan weather was “as gloomy as my mood.”
“To you, we are angels and so strong. But how strong a heart can watch the people around me fall one by one without being shocked?” wrote Li Mengping on her verified account.
Others placed blame for the deaths on Chinese officials, not an animal species from where the virus might have spread, and said those who made trouble for the doctor should face consequences. The most pointed online comments were quickly deleted by censors.
The ruling party has faced similar accusations of bungling or thuggish behavior following previous disasters. They include the 2003 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome, a 2005 chemical spill that disrupted water supplies to millions of people in China’s northeast, sales of tainted milk that sickened thousands of children and the failure of private finance companies after the global economic crisis.
In each case, officials were accused of trying to conceal or delay release of information members of the public said they needed to protect themselves.

Kobach: The Coronavirus Outbreak Presents a Compelling Argument for the Wall
The coronavirus outbreak continues to grow.On Wednesday, 201 U.S. citizens who were evacuated from Wuhan, China, arrived in the United States and were transported to the March Air Reserve Base in California, where they are being informally quarantined and monitored for a three-day period.
But there’s a crucial group of people who are not being quarantined and monitored—the thousands of Chinese nationals sneaking into the United States from Mexico.
In December, eleven Chinese migrants were caught illegally crossing the border in a rental truck carrying furniture from Tijuana to San Diego.A month earlier, six Chinese migrants had been caught sneaking into the country at the same port of entry using a moving truck. These cases were not isolated instances.They are part of a problem that has been growing for the past two years.
And it’s not a problem that’s limited to the border regions of California.Illegal entries by Chinese nationals are on the rise all across the Mexican border.
For example, look at the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector, which is the section of border in Texas abutting the Gulf of Mexico.In FY 2019, the number of Chinese migrants caught at the southern border in the RGV Sector increased 85%, from approximately 700 to over 1,300.
Although figures for the entire border haven’t been made public, it is likely that the number of Chinese nationals apprehended at the Mexican border is well over 4,000.And, for every illegal alien who is caught at the border, there are at least three who make it in without getting caught.
That means that, estimating conservatively, more than 12,000 Chinese nationals entered the country illegally across the southern border in FY 2019.And none of them were screened for infectious diseases.This year a similar number are sneaking into the United States—coming from the country that is the origin of the coronavirus.
At times like this, it is imperative that the process of immigration be orderly and controlled.A secure border is essential in our defense against not only crime and terrorism, but also against pandemics.
If Congress had given the President all of the money for border wall construction that he needed back in 2017, the United States would be in a much better position to address this crisis.The 450 miles of wall that are now in the stages of planning and early construction would already be completed.And it would be much more difficult to enter the United States illegally.
And that means greater security during times of pandemic.The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United States will undoubtedly grow from the six known cases—in California, Arizona, Washington State, and Illinois.But worthy of note is the case in Reynosa, Mexico, right next to the U.S. border.The international border next to Reynosa is wide open.And so is our vulnerability to the coronavirus being carried across it.
Lara Logan: Not surprising to see mainstream media barely cover Trump’s Mideast peace plan
On Tuesday, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled the Middle East peace plan meant to bring to an end the decades-long conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. The plan, which is already opposed by the Palestinians, uses a two-state solution requiring Palestine to meet certain benchmarks to become a state. In addition, there would also be a number of land swaps and the construction of a tunnel connecting the West Bank and Gaza stripOf Tuesday’s network news coverage, NBC covered the announcement for one minute and 45 seconds, CBS spent one minute and 40 seconds, and ABC devoted only 27 seconds.
“You just look at the media landscape since President Trump took office,” she said. “It’s consistent with the strategy by Democratic political operatives and propagandists who have laid out that they would pressure media outlets to resist what they call the ‘normalization’ of Donald Trump.”
“And so, normalizing him means discussing policies on their merits and having any kind of conversation that makes him appear like a normal president,” she explained. “Because the whole basis of the propaganda fight has been that this is an illegitimate president.”
Logan said that while she did not want to “speculate as to what their intentions are,” if viewers look at the context of how previous presidential plans were covered in different administrations, this is a “departure” from what she has known. Read More

The Supreme Court has voted to allow the Trump administration to enforce its new rule that restricts the eligibility of new immigrants who are deemed to likely become “public charges” if they receive visas.
The top court justices voted 5-4 on Monday to grant a stay on nationwide injunctions issued by a lower court, allowing the Trump administration to enforce its “public charge” rule across the country, except for Illinois, while the appeals play out in court. A separate injunction ordered by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois remains in effect but only in that state.
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan said in the opinion (pdf) they would have prevented the rule from taking effect…….ReadMore

Sheriff Clarke: We Build The Wall Inc., Fisher Industries Can Build The Wall Faster, Cheaper Than The Government, Trump’s Hands Are Tied
by Alicia PoweJanuary 26, 2020
Three years into his presidency and President Trump is still fighting to build and pay for his border wall.
After a Republican-held Congress, led by Paul Ryan, failed to get his requests for wall funding passed during his first two years in office, the president faced dauntless resistance last year from a Democrat-controlled House.
The commander-in-chief was forced to circumvent Congress through a national emergency declaration that had to be challenged in the courts to obtain required funding to secure the border.
While gridlock in Washington continues to impede border wall construction, We The People have the ability to bypass the government and build a wall along the 2,000-mile southern border faster and cheaper than the bureaucrats inside the beltway will permit, explains retired Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
“Here’s the problem, when you go with the federal process, procurement process – it takes too long. You have too many people with their hands in the pot,” Clarke told Newsmax’s Chris Salcedo. “You have environmentalists that will throw long jabs up in front of you with environmental impact studies. It takes too darn long. It’s taken the president of the United States nearly four years to build 100 miles.”
As an advisory board member of We Build The Wall Inc., Clarke said he has no doubt Tommy Fisher, CEO of the private construction firm Fisher Industries, and We Build The Wall Inc., a crowdfunded non-profit, can get the job done, using less time and money than the government.
“I know Tommy Fisher, personally, very well. I worked with him on the border wall sector on private property that we built near the El Paso sector near New Mexico. He does great work. He’s got a great mind to be able to get this thing done…..Read rest of the story

Laura Ingraham Puts CIA ‘Whistleblower’ on Blast — Reveals Ciaramella’s Role in Ukrainian Scandal as Reported Earlier at Gateway Pundit (VIDEO)
by Jim HoftJanuary 23
On Wednesday night Laura Ingraham revealed new emails from May 2019 discussing the CIA “whistleblower” and his role in the Ukrainian scandal.
Laura asked the questions, “What did the alleged whistleblower know about the Bidens and Burisma?”
Anti-Trump CIA whistleblower Eric Ciaramella filed his second-hand “whistleblower” complaint against President Trump after speaking with Adam Schiff’s team in September.
Ciaramella claimed he was concerned about President Trump’s discussion of Hunter Biden during his call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
Now we know why Ciaramella was so concerned. According to White House visitor logs Eric Ciaramella was hosting the January 19, 2016 White House meeting where Ukrainian officials were told to drop the investigation into Hunter Biden.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned Iran after missiles hit multiple Iraqi military bases that were hosting U.S. troops, saying he’d just spoken with President Donald Trump.
“Let me say tonight if you are watching television in Iran. I just got off the phone with the president. Your fate is in your own hands in terms of the regime’s economic viability,” Graham said during a late Tuesday appearance on Fox News’s “Hannity.”
“You continue this [expletive], you’re going to wake up one day out of the oil business,” he said.
Iran fired the missiles five days after a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, spurring vows of revenge from the Islamic regime’s leaders.
“This was an act of war,” Graham said. “By any reasonable definition. The missiles were launched from Iran. The president has all the authority he needs under Article II to respond.”
“It was an act of war by the regime that for the last 40 years has been a cancer in the Mideast. When they say they want to destroy Israel, they are not kidding. They’re the largest state sponsor of terrorism.”

Graham, who also sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Trump would take appropriate action when he’s ready.
“The president has to do a couple things tonight. What can I do to restore deterrence to make sure this doesn’t happen again? He doesn’t want regime change,” Graham said.
“He wants the behavior of the regime to change in three areas: Their ballistic missile program needs to change, they need to stop being the largest state sponsor of terrorism, and we need a nuclear deal that does not ensure them a pathway to a bomb like [President Barack] Obama.”
“Trump is not going to be conned by the Iranians,” he said.
He later added: “Here’s what the president, I think, understands about the Iranians: they’re not going to change until you make them change. Here’s what he’s going to be thinking about tonight: ‘What do I need to do tomorrow or the next day to get them back into a deterrent mode so they’ll leave us alone, and how do I get them to change their missile program to get a better deal on their nuclear program so they won’t have a pathway to a bomb, and what can I do to stop them from being the largest state sponsor of terrorism.’ The price to be paid by the Iranians has to go up.”
The Pentagon said that it was “working on initial battle assessments” after the more than a dozen ballistic missiles struck U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq, stating, “It is clear these missiles were launched from Iran.”
It wasn’t immediately clear whether there were any casualties from the missile strikes.
The White House rebutted reports that Trump was going to address the nation late Jan. 7, and Trump issued a statement via his favored platform, Twitter.
“All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good!” he wrote.
“We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”

“He Was Planning a Very Major Attack and We Got Him” – Trump Breaks News that Qassam Soleimani was Plotting Deadly Attack on US Interests (VIDEO)

Earlier today in his first televised remarks since ordering the airstrike that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, President Trump said he took the drastic action to stop a war, not start one.
Later today President Trump addressed Christian leaders in Miami, Florida at the launch of “Evangelicals for Trump.”
President Trump told the audience that Qassam Soleimani was plotting a very major attack against US interests when he was killed.
President Trump: Last night at my direction the United States military executed a flawless strike that terminated the terrorist ring-leader responsible for gravely wounding and murdering thousands and thousands of people and hundreds and hundreds, at least, of Americans. Qassam Soleimani has been killed and his bloody rampage is now forever gone. He was plotting attacks against Americans but now we’ve ensured that his atrocities have been stopped for good. They are stopped for good. I don’t know if you know what was happening but he was planning a very major attack and we got him. (applause)

Homeland Security Chief Orders Review of State DMV Laws on Immigration Enforcement
The stock market reached new all-time highs. This has occurred because the Federal Reserve’s ‘quantitative easing’ never really ended. Instead of consulting Congress like they did in 2008, the Fed simply creates currency out of thin air and hands it out to its member central banks. A lot of that easy money goes into the stock market, which mostly benefits the top of the pyramid that owns most of the major global corporations. Over 50 percent of Americans have no money in the stock market. Many millennials cannot afford to buy a house, let alone stocks.
For many, the American Dream will never become a reality. The wealth divide in this country continues to widen, thanks to the cancerous creation of the Federal Reserve. Instead of stopping booms and busts, they created larger ones, all to their own benefit.
The national debt continues to make new highs along with the stock market. That means more tax dollars will go toward paying interest on the debt. Paying down the principal is impossible unless the president declares a debt jubilee. I’m all for that as long as it also means ending the Fed.
The melt up will grow even more absurd and the wealth divide will worsen unless we change our current immoral system of money. The end of the Federal Reserve is long overdue. Let’s hope President Trump makes it one of his resolutions for 2020.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is thanking President Donald Trump for a phone call in which the US president shared intelligence that has prevented terrorist attacks planned for New Years Eve in Russia.
In a phone call initiated by Russia, the Kremlin said that a “range of issues of mutual interest” were discussed, including information that lead to the arrests of two Russian citizens who were plotting the terror attacks.
On Sunday, Putin’s office released a statement thanking President Trump “for the transfer, through special services, of information allowing the prevention of terrorist acts in Russia.”
The Russian Federal Security Service said that the two people had been planning attacks at public places in St. Petersburg during New Year’s celebrations.

WASHINGTON—The Pacific forces of the United States and its allies face their greatest threat since the Soviet Union. That threat comes from China, which has undermined the U.S.-backed global order for 20 years. But the United States is under-equipped for great powers competition, analysts said on Dec. 13 at the Hudson Institute. In the Western Pacific, in particular, the United States isn’t ready.
In the past two decades, China has transformed its military from a weak and limited force into one that can project power abroad. One expert gave an example of how weak its military was 10 years ago. “Their flyers did not fly at night,” said Bryan McGrath, a former naval officer and head of defense consultancy FerryBridge Group.

TRUMP WAS RIGHT! In 2018 President Called on FISA Judge Collyer to Call in Comey, Yates, McCabe and Rosenstein and Press Criminal Charges
by Jim HoftDecember 26, 2019
Earlier this month the presiding judge of the top-secret FISA court, Rosemary Collyer rebuked the Obama FBI for serious abuses in its efforts to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign in 2016.
But Collyer was warned in 2018 about the fraudulent FISA applications by Rep. Devin Nunes.
In fact there was evidence back in May that the top Executives in Obama’s FBI all knew that there were multiple copies of the Steele dossier and yet they signed multiple FISA warrant applications to spy on President Trump anyways.
In fact, President Trump was aware of the Obama deep state scam on the FISA Court back in 2018.
Trump tweeted out FOX News legal expert Gregg Jarrett’s comments from his Hannity appearance.
Jarrett said the FISA judge should call in DOJ and FBI operatives behind the FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and the Trump administration and press criminal charges.
President Trump agreed.
President Trump: “Ohr told the FBI it (the Fake Dossier) wasn’t true, it was a lie and the FBI was determined to use it anyway to damage Trump and to perpetrate a fraud on the court to spy on the Trump campaign. This is a fraud on the court. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is in charge of the FISA court. He should direct the Presiding Judge, Rosemary Collier, to hold a hearing, haul all of these people from the DOJ & FBI in there, & if she finds there were crimes committed, and there were, there should be a criminal referral by her.…” @GreggJarrett
The Summit sends NATO into space – at exorbitant cost
by Manlio Dinucci
Just like the Atlantic Alliance, the NATO Summit of 4 December will be a staged event during which the vassals will sign up for even greater expenditure imposed by their overlord. No-one knows what the Pentagon has prepared, but they will all have to approve it
On 4 December, the North Atlantic Council of heads of State and government met in London to celebrate the 70th anniversary of NATO, defined by Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg as “the most successful alliance in History”.
An undeniable “success”. Since it demolished the Yugoslav Federation in 1999 by acts of war, NATO membership has risen from 16 to 29 countries (30 if it now covers Macedonia), and expanded Eastward to the borders of Russia. “For the first time in History – claims Stoltenberg- we now have combat-ready troops in the Eastern wing of our Alliance”. But the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has gone beyond that, by extending its war-making operations as far as the Afghan mountains and across the deserts of Africa and the Middle East.
Currently, the Great Alliance is setting the bar even higher. At the London Summit – pre-announced Stoltenberg – the leaders of the 29 member countries “will recognise that space is our fifth field of operations”, to be added to the land, maritime, aerial and cyber-spatial fields. “Space is essential for the success of our operations”, emphasised the Secretary General, hinting that NATO intends to develop a space-based military programme. He obviously gave no details, but said that NATO has signed a first contract of one billion dollars to modernise its 14 AWAC aircraft. These are not simple radar planes, but flying command centres, built by the US company Boeing to manage battles via spatial systems.
Without any doubt, almost none of the European leaders (for Italy, Prime Minister Conte), who, on 4 December “will recognise that space is our fifth field of operations”, knows nothing of NATO’s spatial military programme, prepared by the Pentagon and by the European military summits tied to the largest aero-spatial industries. And even less of these programmes is known by European parliaments which, as in Italy, accept all of NATO’s decisions – under US command – without a thought for their politico-military and economic implications.
So NATO is going to launch into space in the wake of the new Space Command created by the Pentagon last August with the goal, as declared by President Trump, of “ensuring that American domination of space will never be threatened”. Trump then announced the successive constitution of the US Space Force, with the mission of “defending vital American interests in space, the next field of war combat”. Russia and China accused the USA of opening the way to the militarisation of space, and warned that they have the capacity of responding. All this maximises the threat of nuclear war.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk welcomed the launching of Space Force, the newest US military service, with a “Star Trek”-themed tweet: “Starfleet begins.“
Part of the NDAA authorizes the Space Force as a military service under the Department of the Air Force. It is the first military service introduced since the US Air Force spun off from the US Army in 1947. Trump first floated a Space Force initiative in March 2018 speech. (A similar bipartisan proposal for a Space Corps was introduced in the House in 2017 was cut from a previous NDAA.)
“Well, this may be a little controversial, but I actually like the idea,” he said in the interview. “I think it’s cool. You know, like, when the Air Force was formed, there was a lot of like pooh-poohing, and like, ‘Oh, how silly to have an Air Force!’ You know, because the aircraft in World War II were managed by the Army.”
The overall mission as defined by Space Force includes “developing military space professionals, acquiring military space systems, maturing the military doctrine for space power, and organizing space forces to present to our Combatant Commands.”
But it will not be a large force. “Air Force Space Command was immediately redesignated the Space Force, and 16,000 active duty and civilian personnel from AFSPC will now be assigned to the Space Force,” Defense News explains. The personnel will still technically be part of the Air Force, unless they request to transfer permanently into Space Force. (That number is expected to be somewhere between 5,000 and 6,000, according to CNN.)
“The Space Force won’t be measured by the number of people unlike for instance the Marine Corps, which is really a labor-intensive service,” Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett said, CNN reported. “Space Force is much more measured by the technology and the capabilities.”
It was recently announced by Twitter that the social media platform will now be ‘verifying’ all congressional and gubernatorial candidates in order to “level the playing field” in politics. But political commentator Laura Loomer, who’s decided to run for office in Florida after having been banned from virtually all of the major tech platforms, reportedly won’t be included in this new “fairness” effort.
The Gateway Pundit reached out to Twitter to find out whether or not Loomer would be reinstated after having been permanently “suspended,” and the Silicon Valley tech giant revealed that she won’t be, even though she’s now a legitimate political candidate just like her verified opponents.
What this means is that Loomer won’t be able to get her message out directly to the people like President Trump does, nor will she have the ability to get her message out at all, seeing as how she’s also been banned from Facebook, PayPal, GoFundMe, and even Uber and Lyft, all of which have permanently axed her from using their services.
Twitter claims that verifying all other candidates besides Loomer will somehow improve the ability of grassroots candidates in general to reach potential voters. But this apparently doesn’t apply to Loomer no matter what she does, which basically means she’s been permanently blacklisted from participating in digital communications and networking.
The irony with this move by Twitter is that it actually does the exact opposite of what the platform is claiming. Instead of allowing true grassroots candidates to have equal footing with their deep-pocketed establishment counterparts, the new rules effectively tamper with future elections by creating the illusion of “fairness.”
There’s nothing at all fair about continuing to silence Loomer’s voice online, especially since she’s trying to unseat Democrat Lois Frankel from Florida’s 21st district. By keeping Loomer banned, Twitter is actually engaging in election meddling and voter fraud by inhibiting her ability to effectively run for office in the age of social media.
Democrat House members prepare to strap political NOOSES around their own necks in impeachment fiasco based entirely on fabricated thought crimes
Now we arrive at the eve of one of the most grotesque abuses of power ever witnessed in the history of the United States of America. The self-destructing Democrats, poisoned by their own hatred while grossly miscalculating popular support for their actions, are about to vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump based entirely on fabricated “thought crimes.”
President Trump didn’t actually do anything wrong, the evidence shows, but he meant to, the Democrats are arguing with a straight face. And a president can be impeached based on a mental motive that is assigned to him by his political opponents, say the Democrats, even if he had no such motives himself.
EXCLUSIVE | We Build The Wall President Brian Kolfage: Corrupt International Organization Controls Southern Border, Not DHS Or Border Patrol (VIDEO)
by Alicia PoweDecember 14, 2019
Neither the Trump administration, Congress, US Customs & Border Protection or the Department of Homeland Security are currently in control of immigration along the southern border, triple amputee veteran and a founder of the nonprofit organization We Build The Wall Brian Kolfage warns in an exclusive interview with Gateway Pundit.
The governmental entity with the actual jurisdiction over the crime-ridden border is The U.S. Section of The International Boundary and Water Commission, a “United Nations-type” globalist agency, run by deep state hacks, that is deliberately allowing hordes of foreign nationals to illegally enter the United States, the decorated war hero explained.
“This organization basically controls our borders. Homeland Security doesn’t control them. Border Patrol doesn’t control them. This international organization, that’s half-owned by corrupt Mexico, controls our border,” Kolfage said. “These Mexican officials – a lot of them are corrupt and it’s proven that they’re corrupt – have say what goes on at our border on the United States side.”
The IBWC was created by the U.S. and Mexico in 1889 to administer rules for demarcating the location of the border between the two countries, which sits on banks of the meandering Rio Grande River. The international body has a U.S. section and a Mexican section, headquartered in the adjoining cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.
We Build The Wall completed the assembly of a 30-foot high, three-quarter mile-long section of border wall on private property border El Paso, Texas and Sunland Park, in just four days in New Mexico over Memorial Day weekend.
Immediately after the wall was constructed, IBCW Commissioner Jayne Harkins immediately ordered the gate to be permanently padlocked open.
Surveillance footage from the site, which could be mistaken as a scene from The Walking Dead, shows hundreds of illegal immigrants rampaging into the United States just moments after IBWC staffers chained the gate open.
“I’d Like to See the Whistleblower Who’s a Fraud” – PRESIDENT TRUMP Wants Anti-Trump CIA Leaker to Testify (VIDEO)
by Jim HoftDecember 13, 2019
President Trump spoke to reporters today after the House Judiciary Democrats voted to impeach him.
President Trump told reporters he would like a long trial.
Republican leaders including Lindsey Graham want to give Democrats a pass and protect the CIA leaker Eric Ciaramella by not calling in any witnesses.
That way Democrats can do the same thing in a few more months.
Eric Ciaramella is not a whistleblower. He is a CIA leaker and a far left political hack with an agenda to remove Trump from office.
On October 8th Ciaramella approached the intelligence community to correct his statement after news broke on October 2nd that he visited his close friends in Adam Schiff’s office before he turned their whistlblower report. Ciaramella lied about meeting with the Schiff team before he turned in his complaint.
On October 2nd news broke that Schiff and Ciarmella BOTH LIED about their communications before the complaint was filed.
So on October 8th Ciaramella contacted the ICIG to correct his lies on his complaint.
If Ciaramella name was Roger Stone he would be facing 50 years in prison for this lie.
More on Eric Ciaramella:
CIA snitch Eric Ciaramella filed a whistleblower complaint on August 12 over President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky where the two discussed ferreting out corruption. This included talk on investigating the Biden crime family. Ciaramella was not on the call. He just heard about it and his report was filled with inaccuracies.
** The so-called “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella is a Democrat who had a “professional” tie to a 2020 Democrat.
** Ciaramella coordinated and took guidance from Adam Schiff’s staff and Schiff lied about it.
** Eric Ciaramella was a guest of Joe Biden to a luncheon with the Italian Prime Minister in 2016.
** And as The Gateway Pundit reported earlier today Eric Ciaramella hosted the White House meeting in January 2016 when Ukrainian officials were told to get rid of the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma.
This is why Adam Schiff did not want Eric Ciaramella’s name mentioned during the public testimony this week….

Trump Congratulates UK’s Boris Johnson After Election Victory, Hints at New Trade Deal
Today the Democrats running the House made official their plans to remove President Trump from office. President Trump is arguably the best US President since Lincoln, the last great President removed from office by Democrats.
Lincoln was assassinated after holding the country together and freeing Democrat owned slaves in the great Civil War. President Trump is too good for the Democrats. He has an ‘America First’ agenda which the traitorous ruling class despises.
It’s time that we Americans stand and call this what it is. This is another Democrat attempt to remove a President through any means necessary. It is seditious and treasonous. The Democrats in the 1860’s that were in on the Lincoln assassination were killed in their escape or hanged high.
We are entering a new phase when it’s time to hold all seditious and treasonous Democrats who actively act to remove President Trump from office to the same fate!
In April 1865 the young country of the United States of America ended its Civil War. Only days after the war ended Republican President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. The war started when Southern State Democrats seceded from the Union and started their own country. These Democrats would not recognize the Republican President of the United States.
Four years later, after more American deaths than any war in US history, the war ended. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves in the South in the process. This did not sit well with Southern Democrats so they connived a coup attempt to overthrow the government and in so doing assassinated President Lincoln.

Several hundred people were arrested by the government after the Lincoln assassination but most were soon released due to lack of evidence. However, the government did charge and eventually hang four people for their actions related to the murder of the Republican President and for their attempt to over throw the government.
This is America’s second Democrat coup attempt!
The Democrats and their Deep State and corrupt media connived a plan to remove President Trump through the made up crime that Trump ‘colluded’ with Russia to win the 2016 election. This was nonsense as this ‘crime’ isn’t even a crime in our statutory books.
The investigation started without any crime being committed and with a scope that allowed Mueller to look at anything, both against the law. The team put together never would have been allowed in a real court of law because they were all Trump haters and former Hillary Clinton allies. The media never addressed this but then again, the media was part of the attempted coup! There are at least ten reasons why the Mueller coup was unconstitutional and illegal.
Mueller remained silent during the coup while his compatriots in the Deep State DOJ and FBI leaked abusive and dishonest stories to their pawns in the media. The media also kept cheering on Mueller and called him a man of integrity. This was clearly not the case for Mueller’s past is full of questionable and corrupt actions while cleaning up messes for the Clintons and other allies in the government.
Eventually Mueller indicted the less fortunate and a group of made up Russians with made up crimes. As of October of last year the Mueller team had indicted 37 individuals and 3 companies, with more than 80% of the indicted individuals related to Russians who may not even be real and probably had nothing to do with our 2016 election.
Mueller’s gang was asked to investigate Russian collusion but they only looked at the Trump team and those connected to President Trump. Over 100 times the Deep State DOJ, FBI and Mueller gang deviated from standard practice or committed crimes in an effort to exonerate Hillary Clinton from crimes and indict Trump.
Good men like General Mike Flynn and Roger Stone were mere casualties. Like the Union and Confederate soldiers in the Civil War, to hell with life and liberty, move on with the coup and secession from the Union.
Early on it was suspected that the coup was merely an attempt to harass and remove the President while covering up Deep State crimes. Perhaps it was. Regardless, Americans were very angry with Mueller, the media, the Deep State and the Democrat gang who attempted to overthrow the US government.
Their efforts over three years led to the Mueller report as a result of their Special Counsel investigation. After interviewing, harassing and indicting literally thousands of individuals close to President Trump for any crimes they could connive, they finally completed their investigation after Bill Barr stepped in as Attorney General. After tens of millions spent by the government on the tax payer’s dime, and no doubt matching amounts paid for by the President and those close to him in attorney fees, the sham was over.
There was no collusion. It was all an ‘obstruction trap’ and Representative Nunes referred to it. Barr rightly reported ‘no collusion and no obstruction’. If the gang who worked with Mueller would have had anything remotely close to a crime, they would have reported it, but they did not because they could not.
This is a coup!
As soon as the Mueller sham was over, and even before, the Deep State was again planning for their next seditious action to remove President Trump from office. As the Mueller sham was winding down, the Deep State decided to use a call the President made to the newly elected President of the Ukraine for their coup attempt.
Deep State operatives in the White House were spying on the President. Another gang of them listened in on the President’s call and then attempted to change the transcript of the call. The President wisely secured the official transcript so it couldn’t be edited.
Eventually the gang of Deep State spies and leakers, including a former Ambassador to the Ukraine, young undercover CIA agents spying in the White House and at least one US Representative overseeing a sham committee in the House leaked out their plan.
Like John Wilkes Booth, these seditious traitors think they are in the right. They are blinded by their hate for President Trump based on fear that their actions during the prior Obama Administration will get called out.
Today these actors pushed forward another plan to remove President Trump from office. The Democrats who run the House are in on it. Although no laws were broken (by the President) they believe the President must be impeached.
Americans have had enough!
It’s time for investigations and indictments of these Deep State actors who are attempting this coup of our government. Representatives and Senators in on it should not be exonerated. Hang them if that is what the law requires. Americans want justice! Without justice we have no country!

A manhunt is underway in New York after a man was shot in the leg at an upstate mall. On Friday evening, an unidentified victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the leg at the Destiny USA mall in Syracuse.
“That’s why the establishment, the press, the permanent bureaucracy, the tech oligarchs, the urban aristocrats, the Deep State and all the rest of the ugly beautiful people, will never forgive Devin Nunes,” Lee Smith writes in his dynamite new book. “It belittled them that he didn’t care he wasn’t their sort but was proud to be a farm kid.”
At many levels, the psychological pathology of projection has characterized this entire three-year effort to remove Trump. That syndrome also applies to the NeverTrump romp that for over 1,000 days has misled and smeared in its self-righteous pursuit of supposed truth and civility……….continue
The Pentagon’s DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) wants to be able to spread genetically modified bacteria as “explosives sensors.” The United States government could very well be looking into ways to militarize microbes.
The Pentagon has teamed up with Raytheon for this project, which seems like it should come straight out of a dystopian science fiction story. The government wants to develop a system capable of delivering genetically modified bacteria underground, according to a report by RT.
Initiated by DARPA, the same agency that led programs to create telekinetic super soldiers and weaponized robotic insects, the project seeks to “program two bacterial strains to monitor ground surfaces for explosive materials,” defense contractor Raytheon said in a joint press release with the Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
So the genetically modified bacteria are for your own good!
The first of the two strains, known as a “bio-sensor,” will “detect the presence or absence of explosives buried underground,” while the second will produce a “glowing light” in the event such materials are found. Remotely operated cameras or drones would then be sent to survey the area to find the glowing germs, and ultimately the buried explosives. –RT
“We already know that some bacteria can be programmed to be very good at detecting explosives, but it’s harder underground,” said Raytheon researcher Allison Taggart. “We’re investigating how to transport the reporting bacteria to the required depth underground.”
Though the Pentagon claims it only plans to use the system for “defensive” purposes only, some may find the idea of militarized microbes off-putting while conjuring apocalyptic scenarios of a runaway genetically engineered superbug.
DARPA has undertaken some projects that should raise the alarm in many. However, it almost seems as though we’ve reached a point where the masses don’t care what’s being done to them, in their name, and with the money stolen from them. And these are just a few of the things we know DARPA is working on……
Officials at tech behemoth Google have alternately claimed the company doesn’t manipulate searches, improperly curate results, or keep “blacklists” of sites that it either buries or bans altogether.
But a new report from The Wall Street Journal involving extensive analysis and research found that in reality, the company does all three of those things.
The paper notes:
Twenty years ago, Google founders began building a goliath on the premise that its search algorithms could do a better job combing the web for useful information than humans. Google executives have said repeatedly—in private meetings with outside groups and in congressional testimony—that the algorithms are objective and essentially autonomous, unsullied by human biases or business considerations.
The company even claims on its blog, “We do not use human curation to collect or arrange the results on a page.” That said, Google adds it cannot divulge just how it’s search algorithms work because it’s currently involved in a very high-stakes conflict with entities who want to game the system for profit.
However, that claim of innocence is not accurate, the WSJ’s study found. In fact, over the course of years, Google researchers and engineers have re-tooled and manipulated search results to a much greater degree than company officials have admitted.
Those concerned about a foreign power exerting undue influence in Washington should be paying closer attention to the activity of the People’s Republic of China.
– November 12th, 2019
Washington’s obsession with foreign interference in U.S. elections drove the three-year fixation on Russia and morphed into a compulsive fascination with the darker corners of the Ukraine (are there any bright corners in that benighted land?).
Once again the Pharisees strain at gnats but swallow a camel
If they are concerned about a foreign power exerting undue influence in Washington, they should pay attention to the full-spectrum operation mounted by the People’s Republic of China.
President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and FBI Director Christopher Wray have made it clear: China is waging “war by other means” against the United States.
Calling our confrontation with China a “trade war” is like saying arresting armed robbers is “gun control.”
How China Gained the Upper Hand
Ever since President Trump imposed tariffs, Beijing has mounted a relentless influence operation to get him to abandon them.
Michael Pillsbury, author of The Hundred Year Marathon, describes how Beijing employs the classic Chinese military strategy of “use your enemy’s forces against him” to gain the upper hand in trade talks.
They used this tactic to turn around President Bill Clinton. After Clinton campaigned on getting tough on “the butchers of Beijing,” Beijing relied on Clinton’s Wall Street advisers, such as Robert Rubin, to persuade the president that free trade and investment would turn China into a Scandinavian democracy. Rubin wasn’t on Beijing’s payroll. He didn’t have to be. He knew where his bread was buttered.
Beijing has been using the same strategy ever since.
Last May, everyone was confident Beijing and Washington had reached an agreement. A draft 150-page text addressed market access, forced technology transfers, intellectual property theft and state-owned enterprises. It included verifiable dispute-resolution mechanisms and enforcement measures.
But at the last minute, China pulled back.
Beijing’s Spin Factory
It was a ploy on the part of China to extract further concessions. China gambled American negotiators would be tired of multiple rounds of talks, emotionally invested in achieving an agreement, and ready to accept less-than-ideal terms just to ink a deal the markets and Washington had been primed to believe was imminent.
When President Trump wasn’t buffaloed into accepting a “comprehensive deal,” Beijing planted the idea of a skinny or “phase one” deal. And after the skinny deal, the made-in-China narrative became rolling back tariffs to get that deal signed.
China stepped up its campaign to take advantage of our news media, financial system, and political divisions within the administration to achieve its goals. It would “use the enemy’s force against him.”
Here’s how the operation works.
A Chinese official claiming to have “inside information” feeds an American correspondent the spin that a deal (favorable to Beijing of course) is in the works.
The reporter passes it along to headquarters in New York, Washington, or London.
The newspaper, citing “anonymous sources,” then reports China’s spin as “fact.” The story has “no comment” from U.S. negotiators who prefer to negotiate in secret but includes comments from unnamed “administration officials” sympathetic to Wall Street who hint the proposal (originating from Beijing) is “being discussed.”
Once in print, broadcast media from CNBC to Bloomberg et. al., pick up the story, amplifying and cementing China’s spin as “fact.” Reporters ask the administration’s economic advisers on the record to respond to the “news” a deal is in the works.
The action then moves from Washington to Wall Street where financial markets have been primed like Pavlov’s dogs reflexively to move higher on reports “a deal to end the trade war is imminent.”
China’s American Shills
It is at this point Beijing deploys some of its more valuable American assets to apply pressure on the administration to accede to China’s demands for tariff relief.
Some prestigious “expert” will tell us it’s absolutely imperative President Trump scrap the tariffs to strike a deal immediately in order to ensure the American economy remains strong.
These people presenting their opinions as facts are typically of Wall Street pedigree and we’re typically not told where their money comes from.
There is, for example, Sheila Bair. You’ll see her on television and read her columns. We’re told she’s former head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, FDIC, the government outfit that insures your bank account against bank failure.
Bair will tell you the long-term interests of the United States and China are aligned and that the president should “work with allies” rather than take on China alone.
She will tell you tariffs target American consumers and the administration’s talk about China is reckless.
ICBC is owned by the Chinese government and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.
ICBC paid more than $6 million in fines for money laundering violations in this country and, Reuters reports, was the conduit for a multi-million dollar money laundering, tax fraud and smuggling racket by Chinese criminal organizations in Europe. Beijing tried to kill the investigation that led to the arrest of several senior bank executives.
“ICBC is a flagship in China’s quest to become a global banking giant. At the direction of the ruling Communist Party, it and other Chinese state-run banks have aggressively expanded into offshore markets,” Reuters also reports,
Maybe that’s why China hired Bair, who helpfully tells us China should be involved in developing international banking rules and that “We should learn from China.”
Beijing funnels millions of dollars to think tanks, lobbyists and prestigious figures in finance and politics to buy influence in Washington. It’s why China put money in Hunter Biden’s private equity fund. (And why the Ukrainian energy company hired him, too.)
Beijing uses these people and our media to promote the pre-Trump status quo with China and the idea that the American economy depends on making a deal, any deal, with China as soon as possible.
Bair is not alone and she is hardly the worst offender.
Michael Bloomberg, who is thinking about entering the Democratic presidential primary, makes millions selling his financial terminals in Communist China. He says Xi Xinping is not a dictator while Xi orders Hong Kong protestors be shot and millions of Uyghurs be imprisoned in concentration camps.
Bloomberg dare not tell the truth about the world’s worst dictatorship and biggest polluter. Forget about global warming—he’s more afraid of being frozen out of China.
Do reporters at Bloomberg News self-censor?
What’s true for Bloomberg is also true for so many whose personal fortunes are tied to China, from Lebron James to Disney’s Bob Iger.
To protect Disney’s business interests in China, Bob Iger shuts his mouth. So does the rest of Hollywood.
We see how major influencers of our culture can be turned into agents of a hostile foreign power.
How long before TV networks steer clear of criticizing the CCP out of deference to sponsors beholden to China? Do producers at ABC, the Disney network, already feel the muzzle being slipped on?

No matter how the Democrats try to spin it, the first day of public hearings did not go well for them. From Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) powerful opening statement, to the brutal cross-examinations of Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), John Ratcliffe (R-TX) and other Republicans, the weakness, the partisan nature and yes, even the frivolity of their case against the President was exposed. The ultimate indicator that the day had been a bust for Democrats was the absence of a press conference from their fearless leader, Nancy Pelosi. Where was Madame Speaker after the hearing?
Pelosi issued a brief statement to CNN. She said, “What has come forth has further, of course, given us the truth of what happened at the time.” She told CNN she was “consumed with other legislative matters — prescription drugs, Dreamers, appropriations and the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement today,” but that she had “caught a few minutes” of the beginning of the hearing.
Now, impeachment is a relatively rare and deadly serious action for Congress to take. Generally, one wouldn’t expect the Speaker of the House to be consumed with other matters on the first day of public hearings. Pelosi knows it did not go well. And it will likely get worse…...read rest of the hoax
Trump Strategy And The Deep State Bureaucracy
November 12, 2019
Two statements that always bemused me, both having to do with rapidly successful campaigns: “The 100-Hour War” (Desert Storm) and “20 Days to Baghdad” (Iraqi Freedom). My sense of bemusement comes from realizing that most folks who use them have no idea of the months required to build up troops, equipment, and supplies necessary before the actual commencement of offensive military operations. In military parlance we called that, “setting the conditions” or “setting the stance.” Both of these are reminiscent of the old military adage, “Colonels and below study tactics. Generals study logistics.”
In many ways, the Democrats are very good at taking that strategic view. My good friend and colleague Sarah Lee wrote an excellent piece on one example of a strategic effort quarterbacked by none other than former Obama Attorney General, Eric Holder. Holder used his own campaign of lawfare to sue states with gerrymandered Republican-friendly district maps, while, of course, leaving Democrat-friendly states alone. He is the largely ignored force behind turning Virginia Blue.
President Trump understands such strategy. While waving his red cape of tax returns and Twitter outrages in front of the Democrat & never-Trumper bulls, he has also been quietly getting things done to set the conditions for further conservative success, such as tax and regulatory reform.
The New York Times Trashes a Combat Veteran Who Dared to Give His Account of Alexander Vindman Posted at 5:00 pm on November 12, 2019 by Bonchie
It’s amazing how quickly the rules change.
A few weeks ago, I was assured that it is absolutely off-limits to ever question a military member’s motivations when they enter the political arena. Any concern about why Alexander Vindman was so dedicated to Ukraine’s interests was considered a “dual loyalty smear.” This was all a surprise to Michael Flynn, of course, who has been relentlessly trashed by the media despite his extensive military record.
Oddly enough, the rules suddenly changed again this week when another military member stepped forward to give his personal account of Vindman.
This, via American Greatness, who has been in contact with Lt. Col. Jim Hickman.
The New York Times on Thursday covered U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jim Hickman’s explosive allegations against Democrat “star witness” Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman by casting aspersions on Hickman’s character.Last week, Hickman divulged on Twitter that Vindman “really talked up” President Barack Obama and ridiculed America and Americans in front of Russian military officers when Hickman worked with him in Grafenwoher, Germany in 2013. Hickman said that he “verbally reprimanded” then-Major Vindman after he heard some of his derisive remarks for himself. “Do not let the uniform fool you,” Hickman wrote. “He is a political activist in uniform.”
Given what I’ve seen of Vindman’s testimony, all of that is absolutely believable. And let’s remember that Hickman is a decorated combat veteran. By what logic is he to not be believed but Vindman is? Especially when Vindman’s behavior has shown him to be an arrogant, self-serving operator who was willing to subvert the elected accountability of the President to push his own foreign policy?
But the rules are always malleable and The New York Times decided to trash Hickman after lecturing the world just weeks earlier about questioning Vindman. Consistency isn’t their thing…………..continue story
Top Immigration Director Ken Cuccinelli Says He Came Out of Supreme Court Hearing on DACA Case “Optimistic” (VIDEO)

UPDATED 10:11 AM PT — Monday, November 11, 2019
A new report shows internet freedom has declined for users here in the U.S. and across the globe for yet another year. According to the democracy and human rights research group Freedom House, internet users around the world are experiencing less freedoms online as several governments increasingly use social media to monitor their people and spread disinformation.
The study’s findings call attention to the dangers of social media surveillance, which they claim erodes civil liberties like free speech. Freedom House also claims the spread of disinformation threatens to overturn electoral processes.
This marks the third year that internet freedom has declined in the U.S., which is home to several major tech giants such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. These platforms have come under fire for alleged censorship and have received criticism from Capitol Hill.
“They have to quit discriminating against conservatives…no more discrimination, it’s that simple.” stated Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo. “They ought to abide by the same principles of free speech and the First Amendment that our country embraces that we love and call our own.”
President Trump and Republican lawmakers have continued to call out social media giants for their alleged biases. Several Republicans have worked to create legislation in response to censoring conservative speech, including Sen. Hawley. The continuous backlash has caused these tech giants to change. Most recently, Twitter issued an outright ban on all political ads on its platform. At the same time, Google announced it will be looking into its political ad policy in an effort to stop the spread of misinformation during election cycles.
Despite the decline in America, the U.S. still enjoys far more freedoms of expression than most countries. It’s no surprise that China was identified as the world’s worst abuser of internet freedom with ongoing protests in Hong Kong entering their sixth month. Iran and Russia were among the 21 countries defined as “not free,” while researchers named Iceland the best protector of internet freedom.

UPDATED 1:24 PM PT — Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has continued to defend President Trump in regards to the Democrat impeachment. In an interview on “The Today Show” Tuesday morning, Haley doubled-down on her belief that nothing the president is being accused of amounts to an impeachable offense. She said we are less than a year away from a presidential election and the people should decide whether they want the president to continue holding office.
Woody Allen, Amazon End Legal Dispute Over Movie Deal

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Woody Allen has ended his $68 million lawsuit against Amazon.com Inc for backing out of a four-picture production and distribution agreement and refusing to distribute a film he had finished.
Allen and Amazon notified the federal court in Manhattan late on Friday night that the lawsuit was being voluntarily dismissed.
Lawyers for Allen and Amazon did not immediately respond on Saturday to requests for comment.
Allen had sued two Amazon units in February, claiming they could not abandon their distribution plans, including for his completed “A Rainy Day in New York,” because of a “baseless” allegation that he had molested his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992.
Amazon countered in court papers that Allen’s comments related to the #MeToo movement, which began in late 2017, ensured that the company could never receive the expected benefits from its contract with Allen, justifying its decision to end their relationship.
The filmmaker has long denied the allegation by Dylan Farrow, which was also made by her mother Mia Farrow, who appeared in a dozen Allen films and was his longtime partner. He has not been charged.
Allen has won four Oscars, including best director for 1977’s “Annie Hall,” which also won best picture.
But he has seen modest commercial returns for many films since breaking up with Mia Farrow, and some actors and actresses have expressed regret for appearing in his films after Dylan Farrow’s allegation gained renewed attention.
“Rainy Day” has been released outside the United States but not domestically.
McConnell Tells Trump What HE Must Do to Gain Support from GOP Senators in Latest Impeachment Scam –As If It’s Legitimate! (VIDEO)
by Jim HoftNovember 8, 2019976 Comments
think there is actually some truth to this scam impeachment process in the US House of representatives?
It looks that way. How outrageous!
Ed Henry announced on FOX News that Mitch McConnell is giving President Trump pointers on how to gain the votes from Republican senators in the sham House impeachment process.
Mitch McConnell must think that there is some value to the Democrat arguments? Or maybe he thinks the Republican Senate can control Trump? Evidently Mitch thinks President Trump should grovel with GOP senators for their vote in something that is clearly a complete sham.
Meanwhile, the Republican Senate DOES NOTHING to assist this wildly popular Republican President.
The coup attempt by Democrats will change America for ever.
It should be thrown out before it reaches the US Senate floor.
So if Trump is mean to the US Senate they’re going to vote for impeachment over some outrageous farce?
They really are THE WORST.
Tucker Carlson Shines Light on Corrupt Obama-Judge Amy Berman Jackson Who Should be Disbarred and Indicted – Roger Stone Faces This Crooked Judge This Week
by Joe HoftNovember 7, 2019
Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointed corrupt liberal judge with an angry disposition towards Americans who think differently than Obama, continues to put her own distorted interpretation of US law ahead of the US Constitution. This time with Trump ally Roger Stone.
In February 2019 we reported that the judge’s actions with Paul Manafort alone are ample cause for her to be removed or impeached. It looked then like she would kill Manafort before she is brought to justice!
We reported months ago and again in May 2018, that Obama appointed liberal activist Judge, Amy Berman Jackson, was assigned to the most important court case in US history, the Manafort case in the Trump-Russia fake investigation.
Sadly, Judge Jackson has a horrible far left record on the bench. In 2013 Judge Jackson rejected arguments from the Catholic Church that Obamacare’s requirements that employers provide cost free coverage to contraceptive services in spite of being contrary to their religious beliefs. This was overturned by the Supreme Court.
Rep. Jordan: Facts Have Always Been There In Impeachment Probe

UPDATED November 6, 2019
According to Republican congressman Jim Jordan, the facts have always been there regarding the Democrats’ closed-door impeachment inquiry. While speaking to reporters Monday, Jordan reiterated the transcript of President Trump’s phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart displays clear facts that Democrats seem to ignore.
House Democrats began releasing transcripts from those closed-door impeachment hearings on Monday, but Jordan has accused them of purposely leaking portions of those transcripts to the media in recent weeks.
“The facts have been clear from the get go, those four fundamental facts that are never going to change, but we actually have said we want all the transcripts out versus what has taken place over the last three weeks,” he stated. “Which is selective leaking of part of those transcripts by the Democrats, so we wanted them all to come out.”
Transcripts from hearings with ambassadors Kurt Volker and Gordon Sondland will be released Tuesday.
In the case against Lt. General Michael Flynn, his lawyer Sidney Powell previously filed a motion to compel (MTC) Brady material from the prosecution (here). Because the MTC raised stunning, potentially game-changing, legal and ethical issues the prosecution requested the opportunity to file a surreptitious reply to the court; a “surreply”. (here)
Judge Sullivan directed the prosecution to file their surreply, and then granted the defense the opportunity to file a sur-surreply, a response to the prosecution’s last argument. Today Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell filed that response (full pdf below).

Democrats’ Soviet-Style Impeachment Inquiry Focuses on Two White House Lawyers Who Helped Secure Trump’s Phone Call
by Cristina LailaNovember 1, 2019
The Democrats’ sham impeachment inquiry is focusing on two White House lawyers who have knowledge of the discussions about moving the transcript of Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to a highly secure electronic system.
This is the Dems strategy to weasel their way into the West Wing as they seek to damage President Trump’s re-election efforts.
According to two ‘witnesses,’ two White House lawyers, John Eisenberg, the lead lawyer for the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, a senior associate counsel to the president, took steps to ‘hide’ the Trump-Zelensky transcript for political reasons, reported the Associated Press.

Trump confirmed the move in a statement late Thursday.
In a series of tweets, Trump wrote: “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House, is the place I have come to love and will stay for, hopefully, another 5 years as we MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, but my family and I will be making Palm Beach, Florida, our Permanent Residence.”
“I cherish New York, and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state. Few have been treated worse,” he added.
“I hated having to make this decision, but in the end it will be best for all concerned. As President, I will always be there to help New York and the great people of New York. It will always have a special place in my heart!”
The leaks of the details of the calls between President Donald Trump and the leaders of Mexico and Australia in 2017 were the products of intelligence gathering, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told The Epoch Times in an exclusive interview.
Nunes said that sources confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee that the leaks of the calls between Trump and foreign leaders were based on intelligence products, prompting Nunes to investigate the matter.
“We knew right away in January that unmasking was occurring. Well, we knew the big one, the major one, was the Flynn transcript that was given out. And then you slowly had the Australian prime minister; you had the Mexican president, plus stories that we were seeing out in the mainstream news media. It was clear that somehow people were getting information from what appeared to be intelligence products,” Nunes said on Oct. 28.
“We had some sources that had come to us to tell us that this was happening. So finally, we were able to finally piece it together, and I was able to review it. And then once I saw what it was and it was much more than what I expected. And it had nothing to do with Russia.”
Nunes had previously revealed, in March 2017, that he had confirmed that the intelligence community incidentally collected the communications of Trump’s transition team and unmasked the names of individual officials. His comments to The Epoch Times on Oct. 28 show that intelligence gathering on Trump and his associates continued beyond the Inauguration Day and resulted in major leaks to the media.
“And then the media had no interest in that. Not only were they never interested in the unmaskings that occurred, they continue to be against it. They said that I did all kinds of things wrong, and they only wanted to know where I got it from. And then they made up a total phony story about how somehow I was going over to the White House at midnight, which was complete completely nuts,” Nunes said, referring to the disproven allegations that he was coordinating his investigation with the White House.
Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is cut from the same cloth as Elizabeth Warren, who falsely claimed that she was a Native American. Robert Francis O’Rourke is also guilty of cultural appropiration. His name Beto is a Spanish name and he has tried to imply that he is a Latino, at least in hish early days in politics. He is not, not even close.
“Beto” O’Rourke is well-to-do man. His net worth is estimated to be between 4 and 5 million dollars. However, there is a disconect with his wealth. Nobody can say where that money came from. In the employment world, he has never experienced success. He worked for his uncle’s ISP company, but only in the postion as errand boy. He spent most of his writing poems and songs in an effort to support his failed music career. In his young adult years he was denied simple loans for a car and a home, simply because he was an employment deadbeat. Where did his money come from? We will come back to that question.
We already know about the criminality of the Pelosi family as well her family’s mafia background. Let’s take a look at her protege, Beto O’Rourke.
Beto O’Rourke Is a Serial Criminal
Beto has an interesting criminal background that is known to the public via public records. He has a criminal background that is significant and loingstanding dating back tis high school days.
Telephone Serivce Theft
O’Rourke has admitted that he stole long-distance phone service during his teen years in order to use his dial-up modem. In this endeavor, he used the handle “psychedelic warlord”.
Beto O’Rourke belonged to a club in hgih school that had many unsavory characters. Of course, it could be excused as a case of youthful indiscretion. His crime was computer hacking. The young age and the severity of the crime is noteworthy. However, like every business endeavor pursued by Beto, he failed economically. Democrats have rebranded and reframed his indiscretion as a possible benefit to his desire to serve as President.
Pornography and Burglary
O’Rourke has admitted complicity in writing stories with porn themes. He later said he regretted his “youthful indicretion”.
On May 19, 1995, O’Rourke and his friends jumped over a fence at the University of Texas at El Paso and were subsequently arrested by the UTEP police and held for burglary. He was held in jail and was initially charged with burglary, but prosecutors dropped the case against O’Rourke. In fairness to “Beto” both sets of charges were eventually dropped for unknown reasons. It helps to have low friends in high places.
