‘Horny’ Bill Clinton Should Avoid Spotlight Over Epstein Links, Bill Maher Says

Bill Clinton has rubbed shoulders with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, a well-connected couple who have both been accused of sexually trafficking and abusing girls and women. Clinton denies knowing about their alleged crimes.

The Democrats should consider keeping the Clintons on the sidelines during the election campaign, TV host Bill Maher said on his talk show “Real Time” on Friday.

“I know in your book you say you got 2016 wrong because you forgot Bill Clinton’s first rule of politics, which is make it about them,” Maher told Paul Begala, who was a close advisor to President Bill Clinton.
He went on to say that the question “what do we do with the Clintons now” always bubbles up during the elections.

Could Trump have jeopardized one of his biggest donors? President attacks GOP mega-donor Sheldon Adelson for not spending more - despite the Vegas mogul pledging $100M to his campaign

The president blasted one of his biggest benefactors in a heated phone call last week accusing him of not doing enough to support his campaign
Aldeson, 87, has shelled out millions to Trump's campaign and the Republican party over the years and had pledged a $100 million donation to his reelection
Three sources told Politico Trump's team went into damage control with the donor but Aldeson's sources warned it is unclear if the call will have cost Trump.

It comes at a critical time in Trump's campaign when he has faced a backlash from voters over his handling of the pandemic and the ongoing civil unrest
Trump's campaign still has a bigger war chest than Biden's, but donations from super PACs and TV advertising spend is lagging.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, this is amazing tone-deafness writ large; did you not have someone do the due dilligence for you before you called Adelson?!? Even in today's economy, sir, one-hundred million dollars is NOT "chump change".

I would politely suggest that your criticism of Adelson, before you had a really accurate sense as to what this man has already done for you, was a screamingly horrific mistake, and may well cost you the election.

Beirut police fire teargas at protesters demanding justice over explosion

Police in Beirut fired teargas and rubber bullets at thousands of people who had turned out to demand accountability for one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions the world has seen. They also shot live ammunition in the air, in an attempt to disperse the furious crowds.

Driven by anger at the corruption and incompetence that appears to have fostered Tuesday’s tragedy, people gathered from early afternoon in the city’s central Martyrs Square, where activists have erected a mock gallows for Lebanon’s top politicians.

The protesters chanted: “The people want the fall of the regime,” and held posters saying: “Leave, you are all killers.” More than 150 people died in the blast, about 6,000 were injured and at least 60 are still missing, according to the health ministry.

As the dust from the explosion settles, its political fallout is just beginning to be felt, reviving a protest movement that last year toppled the prime minister but left the system he presided over almost intact.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem for Lebanon is that without fundamental changes in the system, things for the Lebanese people will never get better, and something like this inconceivable catastrophe could well happen again.

I understand the desperation these people are feeling; it comes with voting and voting and voting, and nothing fundamentally changes; nothing with which we here in the US could ever identify, right?!?

Elliott Abrams Failed Trump's Mission to Overthrow Venezuela—Now He Will Take On Iran

President Donald Trump's pick to compel Iran into changing its strategy has quit amid a failure to foster diplomacy with the longtime foe and may be replaced by the White House's point person for Venezuela, another country whose embattled government has resisted a "maximum pressure" campaign by the United States.

Elliott Abrams, a Washington veteran who rose to prominence in the 1980s with his staunch interventionist, anti-communist stances in Latin America and until now served as Trump's special representative to Venezuela will replace Brian Hook, who was appointed in the wake of the U.S. exit from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018, the State Department confirmed in a statement.

The selection signifies a hardline push for the administration against Iran in the final months of Trump's first term as the revolutionary Shiite Muslim power continues to defy U.S. attempts to force it to change what Washington calls Tehran's "malign behavior" across the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My take?!?

Hook knows what is coming, relative to Iran, and doesn't want to be any where near the situation, when the excrement hits the ventilation system.

Abrams, a staunch "Israeli-Firster" , was the prime architect of the the Fatah/Hamas war in 2007. How Abrams Orchestrated the 2007 Hamas/Fateh Palestinian Civil War, and I am almost ready to bet real money, that he will be advocating for direct US military action against Iran.

There is, however, one teeny, tiny factoid which the Swamp Dwellers in DC don't really want to look at; last summer, at a conference which included Iranian delegates, Russia promised to assist Iran, if the US invaded.

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

Perhaps Abrams has a really bad case of SMD (selective memory disorder) on this issue, but I think that it may be time for someone to politely remind him that this was the promise given to Iran by Russia last summer at this convocation.

The guy who made this promise to the Iranian delegation, Zamir Kabulov, is a career diplomat who most probably doesn't even FART without Putin's express permission, so if he made that promise, you can rest assured that it came right from the top.

War with Russia over Iran?!? This would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing any US administration could do.

As we have seen in Russia's intervention in Syria, they have weapons systems which work as advertised; Lockheed-Martin's F-35 has had its problems "reclassified", but not fixed.

Unfortunately, just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee in the 21st century, that they will not do it.

BIDEN STUMBLES OVER HIS WORDS WHILE ASSERTING HE DOESN’T NEED TO TAKE A COGNITIVE TEST

SOURCE: PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

Joe Biden was caught in yet another embarrassing situation during an on camera appearance as he stumbled over his words while asserting that he didn’t need to take a cognitive test.

President Donald Trump has turned Biden’s mental faculties into a campaign issue, prompting condemnation from the media and yet Biden’s own verbal slip ups continue to provide material for such claims.

During an interview with the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Biden was asked if he would take a cognitive test to prove Trump wrong.

“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” responded Biden.

Biden then shot himself in the foot yet again by stumbling over the words “my physical and mental” fitness not once but twice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to shake my head, at the incredibly disingenuous attitude coming from the National DNC, that .... Biden was the only viable candidate for President, while his dementia is furiously taking over his life, bit by bit, for every American, and world leadership, to see, in this remarkably sad exposition.

Senator Tammy Duckworth (a Vet who lost both of her legs in combat) and Representative Tulsi Gabbard (the Representative from Hawaii, who has seen combat) would ultimately have been much stronger candidates, but the American War Party, and military industrial complex, which effectively control both the Democratic and Republican parties, would have none of it.

Duckworth MIGHT get the VP spot, which would be terrific, because she is a first-hand survivor who understands, at a deeply personal level, the costs of war, but I doubt it.

The only way the Dementocrats can win this election, which will be contentious, and if certain states get their way, is for them to steal it via mail-in ballots.

In fact, a New York Federal judge has already begun the process.

The article goes on to state: "The ruling, by Judge Analisa Torres of Federal District Court in Manhattan, may not affect the outcome in the June 23 primary. Representative Carolyn B. Maloney is leading her Democratic challenger, Suraj Patel, by some 3,700 votes, and the judge’s decision was narrowly drawn to force the counting of only a portion of the 12,500 disputed absentee ballots.

Still, the judge’s decision is the latest twist in a race that has been used by the president to cast doubts on the efficacy of vote-by-mail systems nationwide, even as he trails in polls in his bid for re-election. The coronavirus outbreak has prompted states across the nation to consider expanding mail-in voting for the general election in November, as public health officials worry that convening at polling locations may spread the disease."

PENTAGON NOMINEE QUESTIONED ABOUT COMPANY’S REPORTED TIES TO KHASHOGGI KILLERS

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
The Trump administration’s nominee for a top special operations post at the Pentagon is facing questions about whether a company he helps oversee trained members of the Saudi team who killed journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In May, President Donald Trump nominated Louis Bremer — a former Navy SEAL turned investment banker — to serve as assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict. In that role, Bremer would be the top civilian in the Defense Department overseeing the special operations community.

Bremer is currently a managing director at Cerberus Capital Management — a private equity company whose founder, Stephen Feinberg, has close ties to the Trump administration and was once considered for a high-up job in the intelligence community. Bremer also sits on the board of directors of Tier 1 Group, an Arkansas-based special operations training company that is owned by Cerberus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OUCH!!! Not good, appreciating the degree to which this government, and its intertwined, connected, deep-state assassins, may well have been complicit in Kashoggi's death.

Food prices rise to dangerous levels as “a second wave of layoffs” hits the U.S. economy

We already knew that millions upon millions of the jobs that were originally lost are never coming back, and now we are learning that millions of the jobs that were actually regained are being lost again. -- So what this means is that at the exact same time that food prices are skyrocketing, countless Americans find themselves out of work and no longer have paychecks coming in. -- What a nightmare.

Details of Political Pressure to Persecute McCloskeys in St. Louis, Gate Details

Prosecutors have enormous power and absolute immunity. It is a weak point in the system of ordered liberty in the United States. -- The far left is exploiting that vulnerability. The Supreme Court removed many checks and balances when they gave prosecutors absolute immunity. The left is using that power against the democratic system. They don’t have a further plan. -- Their plan has devolved into one goal: tear down the system.

VIDEO PROOF Of How Dinesh D'Souza Used To Pronounce "Thailand" Back In 2002 (Before Trump Pardoned Him)

I wish I could see his face when he finds out about this clip...

Why Antifa Is The 'Keyser Söze' Of Social Unrest

Authored by Jonathan Turley,

Below is my column in the Hill newspaper on yesterday’s hearing in the Senate, which ended abruptly with Sen. Hirono walking out after a confrontation with Sen. Cruz over his objection that the Democrats were avoiding direct criticism of Antifa.

In roughly 50 hearings as a witness in Congress, that was a first for me. I have been in a hearing with a lock down but I have never been in hearing with a walk out. I was not sure if I was expected to turn off the lights after both senators left.

The dramatic ending of the hearing however quickly supplanted the underlying issue. As I stated in my testimony, I am less concerned with Antifa’s role in the protests as its role in the growing anti-free speech movement in the United States.

Here is the column:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turley is absolutely correct here.

I am not about to ever confront a group of Antifa protestors; if they had any idea that I am Mike Rivero's wife, they would do their best to put me in a wheelchair permanently, and I frankly don't want to go there.

But that being said, this country was built around the value of peaceful protest.

I, with Mike at my side, peacefully protested the coming war against Iraq, when it was about to happen, as both immoral and illegal. But violent protest, where people actually get physically hurt?!? Thank you, no; that is not ANYTHING the Constitution or Bill of Rights supports, period, end of discussion.

'Kansas Should Go F*** Itself': Taibbi Opines On Liberal Arrogance In Lieu Of Introspection

America’s financial and political establishment has always been most terrified of an inclusive underclass movement. So it evangelizes a bizarre transgressive politics that tells white conservatives to fuck themselves and embraces a leftist sub-theology that preaches class as a racist canard." -Matt Taibbi

Matt Taibbi has written one hell of a book review in advance of a Friday podcast interview with author Thomas Frank, whose new book "The People, No: A Brief History of Anti-Populism" is currently Amazon's #1 new release in 'radical political thought.'

Frank, according to Taibbi, not only predicted the current culture war we currently find ourselves in - he's hit the nail on the head once again when it comes to the left's inability to learn from their mistakes - after the party abandoned blue-collar America for condescending, coastal intellectuals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Matt Taibbi writes something, please pay attention; I will not say that he is necessarily 100% correct in his observations, but he's pretty damned close.

The Government Cannot Protect You! You Must Protect Yourself!

New York City’s tiered handgun licensing scheme is not only inconsistent with the Second Amendment, it promotes unlawful discrimination under the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment and invites both abuse by and corruption in the City’s Licensing Division. In fact, the City’s insufferable and puzzling handgun licensing scheme is, from a purely logical standpoint, apart from a legal standpoint, internally inconsistent and incoherent.

Former clients of acting Homeland Security chief Chad Wolf received millions in department contracts

Several former lobbying clients of Chad Wolf, now the acting secretary of Homeland Security, have received millions of dollars’ worth of government contracts while he has held senior positions within the department.

Wolf, who became the acting chief of the department late last year, was a lobbyist for over a decade at Wexler & Walker before he took leadership roles with DHS under President Donald Trump.

Since 2017, several of Wolf’s former clients reaped a total of at least $160 million in contracts from DHS, according to a CNBC analysis of the public filings.

U.S. Attorney John Durham will soon interview former CIA Director John Brennan, another sign that the investigation of the Trump-Russia investigators is ready to wrap up by the end of the summer.

Durham, the federal prosecutor from Connecticut appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Crossfire Hurricane inquiry and to scrutinize the conduct of the law enforcement leaders and intelligence officials involved in it, has asked to interview Brennan, according to “people familiar with the request” cited by NBC News, and the former top spy and vociferous Trump critic has reportedly agreed to the sit-down. The same report cites sources who suggest Durham’s inquiry may be nearing the finish line.
