Dinesh D'Souza Has Exactly One Thing in Common With Sam Cooke "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The second coolest thing on Twitter is seeing experts in a field engage in serious, thoughtful, informative discussions about their areas of expertise.

The coolest thing is when, in the process, they eviscerate a buffoon like Dinesh D'Souza.

Convicted felon and habitual grifter Dinesh D'Souza has a movie and a book coming out. This movie and book (they are a package, of course) expose, at long last, a shocking secret that liberals have covered up for decades: in the 1800s, the Democrats supported slavery. (This is a pretty damning admission from D'Souza about the ignorance of his followers.)

Fortunately, there are people who make a living studying history--"historians", if you will--and thus have the expertise to assess D'Souza's claims. And in the last week, they've been doing it with a vengeance.

There's historian Kevin Kruse, author of a book about political shifts in the south, who schools D'Souza on party realignment in this thread:...

Progressive Primary Winners Abandoned By The DCCC "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Normally, I don't buy into "lesser-of-two-evils" politics. If Democrats nominate a corrupt reactionary Blue Dog, I'm at least as incensed as I am over a Republican. That's not going to change either. And, I'm still saying that "normally" no longer applies, not with Trump and his Congress-ful of enablers and rubber stamps. I'm telling friends and relatives-- my sister lives in Jeff Van Drew's district-- to just hold their noses and vote for anyone with a "D" next to their name. As Digby has been saying since Trump moved into the White House, we're in existential territory here. Boxing in Trump is more important than anything.

That said, there's no need to stop reminding the establishment Democratic Party that we need them to stop turning off the base with their Blue Dog/New Dem agenda and their uncontrollable hatred for the Democratic grassroots, for progressives and for the kind of reform that will shut down the spigots of money and power that motivates the careerism of the Hoyers, Wasserman Schultzes, Crowleys (buh bye) and the mirror image candidates the DCCC keeps recruiting to run for Congress.

The DCCC is now whining how progressives have to get on board the unity train and pull together to elect a Democratic Congress to stop the boogie man in the White House. I agree. They're correct.

What they're not correct about is that that's a one-way street. Let me give you an example. The DCCC drew up a list of the most crucial districts that they absolutely had to prioritize to flip in November. One is the Omaha swing district, NE-02. The DCCC went out and recruited a Blue Dog, Ben Ashford, who the voters in the district had rejected in 2016 after he served a term in Congress and voted pretty consistently with the GOP. Democratic voters refused to reelect him and now there's a Republican, Don...

WaPo Hack Appelbaum Attempts to Destroy Esteemed Pro-Trump Official in Recent Screed "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Anne Applebaum is a regular columnist for the Trump-hating Washington Post. She is a confessed leftist with few academic credentials who was dismissed by the Legatum Institute in London because she did not like their evolving Christian orientation. She now is on the Soros payroll for a project housed at the LSE. Yes, she should be exposed! Her recent pieces in the failed Washington Post demonstrate a level of Trump hate and disfavor for those who support him.

She did a hatchet job on Ted Malloch who she knows and clearly dislikes.

This was one of her recent screeds against a leader of the anti-globalist right.

Ted was Trumps favorite to be Ambassador to the EU, while she tries to defame him. The head of the Trump Transition Team for national security, former Amb, Martin Silverstein, can easily confirm this. He and a panel of four others interviewed him last January in Trump Tower. The press corps photographed him there. None other than Rudy Giuliani, Trumps closest confidant at the Inauguration told him he had the job. Roger Stone was also a whisperer to Trump on Teds behalf. Many people in Trump world know these facts.

Malloch, unlike Applebaum, has considerable credentials. He has an earned PhD in international political economy, four honorary doctorates, including one from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, for his contribution to civil society. He has published 16 books. Read them. He is also a Christian evangelical (Anglican) conservativea faith Appelbaum also despises, like many on the left.

Critics should read Mallochs thoughtful piece on Transatlantic Relations in Parliamentarian magazine or on economic populism in American Greatness. He published in a wide variety of sources all over the spectrum some 40-opinion pieces leading up to the last US election. They were brought together in a nice little book entitled, Hired: An Insiders Look at the Trump Victory. Maybe Applebaum and her ilk would benefit by reading it and discussing ideas rather than castigating a scholar and diplomat who was on the very Scholars and Writers for Trump masthead. Malloch appeared on BBC, CNN, Fox and elsewhere long before that election as a policy expert.

She quotes the FT...

James Woods and Don Jr. React to Rumors of a Hillary Clinton 2020 Presidential Bid "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On Sunday, the Drudge Report ran a curious headline banner with a photo of twice-failed presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton, ONE LAST RUN?!

Michael Goodwin wrote an interesting article in the New York Post titled, Is Hillary Clinton Secretly Running in 2020?

Hillary Clinton is up to something, Goodwin writes.

Goodwin argues some of Clintons actions, such as fundraising with urgency, calling for protests, touting her PAC, Onward Together to fight Trumps policies and next SCOTUS pick suggest she may be gearing up for a 2020 run against Trump.

Michael Goodwin lays out three reasons why he believes Hillary could make a third run, although he says his liberal Dem friends are horrified at the thought and would not give her a single cent.

First, because theres no clear front-runner for the nomination 18 months into Trumps presidency, Clinton remains the closest thing to an incumbent. Shes also got numerous advantages, from name recognition to campaign experience to an off-the-shelf Cabinet, that could give her a head start.

Second, a crowded, diverse field diminishes the chances of anyone knocking her off. Recall how Trump outlasted 16 GOP rivals by having a committed core of supporters that grew as the field shrunk. Clinton could be in a similar position unpopular among many, but also unbeatable by a single opponent.

Third, looking ahead to the 2020 primaries, she sees no reason to fear the favorite daughters and sons in key blue states. She would almost certainly beat Sen. Kamala Harris in California, Sen. Cory Booker in New Jersey and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York.

Don Jr., and James Woods had some fun trolling Hillary Clinton on Sunday over the idea of her running against Trump in 2020.

For the Record: Pompeo Seeks Peace "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Montage by Alice Wielinga/Time.

Speaking of North Korea, I think I may have just noticed something significant, stimulated by a Twitter friend:
Namely, as you see, that Fox's first story on how North Korea was not doing anything to "denuclearize" and was in fact going back to building up forces appeared on the same day as the State Department announcement that Pompeo was going back for a visit to Pyongyang. And the next day that Trump tweeted for the last time (so far) on the subject:
Optimistic, as ever. "If not for me, I would have started a War with North Korea by now!" He's such a consummate dealmaker he can even snooker himself!

Read It and Weep "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Reading stuff like this in the paper makes me want to go to the country, eat a lot of peaches and try to find Jesus, on my own. Its hard to identify all the ways in which it is appalling.

A resolution to encourage breast-feeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this spring in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly.

Based on decades of research, the resolution says that mothers milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.

Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.

American officials sought to water down the resolution by removing language that called on governments to protect, promote and support breast-feeding and another passage that called on policymakers to restrict the promotion of food products that many experts say can have deleterious effects on young children.

When that failed, they turned to threats, according to diplomats and government officials who took part in the discussions. Ecuador, which had planned to introduce the measure, was the first to find itself in the cross hairs.

The Americans were blunt: If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced.

The showdown over the issue was recounted by more than a dozen participants from several countries, many of whom requested anonymity because they feared retaliation from the United States.

Health advocates scrambled to find another sponsor for the resolution, but at least a dozen countries, most of them poor nations in Africa and Latin America, backed off, citing fears of retaliation, according to officials from Uruguay, Mexico and the United States.

We were astonished, appalled and also saddened, said Patti Rundall, the policy director of the British advocacy group Baby Milk Action, who has attended meetings of the assembly, the decision-making body of the World Health Organization, since the late 1980s.

What happened was tantamount to blackmail, with the U.S. holding the world hostage and trying to overturn nearly 40 years of consensus...

Poor, Poor Paul Manafort "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Twitter is overrun by right-wing trolls bemoaning the fact that Paul Manafort is in lockdown twenty-three hours a day in a VIP section of his prison. They characterize this as solitary confinement but it's actually for his own protection. This is a topic of conversation because Manafort's lawyers complained about it but the judge could issue a test by asking Manafort if he'd prefer to mingle with the other inmates. If he's in his right mind, the answer would be "no, thanks, your honor, I like my VIP digs just fine."

It's a bit dangerous to be a famous person in prison and I remember when Mike Tyson was terrified that he be beaten up just so someone could have a notch on their belt. Add to that the fact that Manafort is suspected of treasonous behavior and that he worked for Donald Trump who never stops insulting racial minorities. Then there's the problem that Manafort owes a mobbed up Russian oligarch approximately twenty million dollars, that the Russians don't want him talking, and that he could bring down a presidency, and there's a lot of risk that a contract could be put out on him. It would not be prudent to assume he'd be safe in the general population of any prison.

No one wants to be responsible for Manafort being assaulted or killed while he awaits trial and I strongly suspect that he is quite happy to be segregated.

But, the right has their talking point and now they're using the qualms people have about the overuse of solitary confinement as punishment as a way to argue that Manafort's human rights are being violated.

They're shameless.

Did Vietnam Send Us Their Best? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The New York Times has a great article up right now comparing the surprise upset victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the primary victory of Elizabeth Holtzman in 1972. Its of personal interest to me because I once appeared on a panel with Ms. Holtzman at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia to discuss the possible impeachment of George W. Bush. I dont know why I was invited but she was there because she served on the House Judiciary Committee that voted out articles of impeachment against President Nixon.

Reading the article, I was pleased to learn a little more about her career in Congress.

Ms. Holtzmans time in Congress, which was followed by a long tenure as Brooklyn district attorney and then a short one as New York Citys comptroller, was distinguished by her role in helping found what would become the Congressional Caucus for Womens Issues, by the lawsuit she brought against President Richard M. Nixons administration for the bombing of Cambodia and by her membership in the House Judiciary Committee that voted to impeach Nixon. With Senator Edward M. Kennedy, she wrote the Refugee Act of 1980, in response to the exodus of Vietnamese after the war, which raised the annual ceiling for refugees coming into the country, significantly, to 50,000 and created a formal process for reviewing and adjusting the numbers to accommodate emergencies.

When I was in elementary school, these refugees were initially referred to as The Boat People, which struck me as odd then and still seems strange and dehumanizing today. I did not know about the Refugee Act of 1980 although I guess I knew that there must have been some legislative effort to accommodate the influx of Vietnamese people after Saigon fell to the North. She and Senator Kennedy must have done an adequate job because their bill breezed through Congress.

The bill passed unanimously in the Senate late in 1979. No one said Vietnam is sending their rapists and killers and not their best, Ms. Holtzman elaborated. The fact that we are in hysteria over admitting 2,000 children to this country is something I cannot fathom. It is totally astonishing.

It does seem strange in retrospect that having just lost over 50,000 soldiers in a war with North Vietnam, and after killing countless Vietnamese people, we didnt have a bunch of conservative...

Will July 6th Be a Day That Lives in Infamy? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I guess we should remember the date. The trade war started today:

A trade war between the worlds two largest economies officially began on Friday morning as the Trump administration followed through with its threat to impose tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese products, a significant escalation of a fight that could hurt companies and consumers in both the United States and China.

The penalties, which went into effect at 12:01 a.m., prompted quick retaliation by Beijing, which said it immediately put its own similarly sized tariffs on American goods. Previously, the Chinese government had said it would tax pork, soybeans and automobiles, among other products

Chinas Ministry of Commerce said in a statement that the United States has launched the biggest trade war in economic history so far.

American soybean farmers are among the first victims:

Soybean prices in the U.S. and Brazil, the nations that account for roughly 80 percent of global exports, have taken drastically different paths thanks to Donald Trumps trade war.

In the U.S., average cash prices fell to about $7.79 a bushel this week, the lowest in almost a decade, according to an index compiled by the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. Chinas tariffs on American goods including farm products have now taken effect after the U.S. implemented a raft of duties earlier in the day Friday and President Trump threatened more action.

Meanwhile in Brazil, exporters have been handed high times. Soybeans to be loaded in August at the nations Paranagua port fetched $2.21 a bushel more than Chicago futures as of Friday, the widest gap sin...

Baby Khan Balloon Fundraiser Blows Past 34,000 Organizers Now Discuss Second Balloon over Parliament "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The Muslim Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, approved an angry baby Trump blimp to fly near the Parliament for two hours on July 13th during the Presidents visit to the United Kingdom.

Ironically, the group behind this angry baby Trump blimp refer to themselves as anti-fascists.

Sadiq Khans spokesman said the Mayor approved the blimp because he supports the right to peaceful protest.

A counter group announced on Friday it was raising money for a Baby Khan balloon to fly over London with the Baby Trump blimp next week.

Unhinged Democrat Screams at and Harasses Steve Bannon in Richmond Bookstore Police Called "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A bookstore owner in Richmond said he called the police after a woman confronted Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist for President Donald Trump, in his shop Saturday.

Nick Cooke, owner of Black Swan Books on West Main Street in the Fan District, said Bannon was in the bookstore Saturday afternoon and that a woman confronted him, calling him a piece of trash.

Cooke said he called 911 and that the woman left as he made the call.

Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business. I asked her to leave, and she wouldnt. And I said, Im going to call the police if you dont, and I went to call the police and she left, Cooke said. And thats the end of the story.

Pruitt Will Be The Gift, Politically Speaking, That Keeps On Giving, Right Through 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The Senate should have listened back then

On his last day in office, Scott Pruitt was still working to screw the American people-- for generations to come. According to a report this morning from the NY Times, on Friday, in his final hours in office, the EPA granted "a loophole that will allow a major increase in the manufacturing of a diesel freight truck that produces as much as 55 times the air pollution as trucks that have modern emissions controls." That followed "intense lobbying by a small set of manufacturers that sell glider trucks, which use old engines built before new technologies significantly reduced emissions of particulates and nitrogen oxide that are blamed for asthma, lung cancer and other ailments." Scott Pruitt (and Donald Trump)-- always looking out for more effective ways to destroy life on the planet earth.

Susan Collins (R-ME) had the good sense to vote against confirming Pruitt, but, alas, to no avail. Two right-wing fake Democrats, Heidi Heitkamp (ND) and Joe Manchin (WV) voted with the GOP to confirm, as they do so frequently, and Joe Donnelly hid under his bed and refused to come out to vote. So much damage could have been avoided. The case to back grotesquely bad Democrats is always... "the confirmations." It was Bay of Arizona's argument today on Twitter when I wrote that I could see supporting every horrible, worthless Democrat for the sake of checking Trump, except one-- Kyrsten Sinema.

AWFUL. Paul Ryan Throws Jim Jordan Under the Bus Over Bogus Charges from 30 Years Ago! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

DISGUSTING!

This is why conservatives and Trump supporters are tired of the party elites.

Jim Jordan was a national wrestling champion in college.
Jordan later took a job as assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University from 1987-1995.

Jordan is now a favorite of US conservatives for his work in Congress and the Freedom Caucus.
In the last two weeks former wrestlers with shady pasts attacked Jim Jordan for the behavior of the former team physician Richard Strass.

The former wrestlers say they were ogled and touched inappropriately by the physician. They blame Jordan for the physicians behavior.

Democrats are using this gay-bashing to attack Jim Jordan.

Jordan says he knew nothing about these accusations.

Rather than defending Jim Jordan Paul Ryan is siding with the university.
Paul Ryan is leaving congress next year and it cant come soon enough.

The Washington Examiner reported:

House Speaker Paul Ryan called the recent allegations raised against Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, serious in a statement on Friday.

These are serious allegations and issues, a spokesman for Ryan told USA Today in an email. The university has rightfully initiated a full investigation into the matter. The speaker will await the findings of that inquiry.

Jordan has been accused of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse carried out on members of the Ohio State University wrestling team, where Jordan served as an assistant coach in the 1990s.

In total, five former OSU wrestlers claim that Jordan knew about a pattern of sexual harassment carred out by then-team doctor, Richard Strauss, but failed to act. The Ohio congressman has vehemently denied having direct knowledge of any wrongdoing, and said on Fox News Friday night that the accusers know what theyre saying is not accurate.

Crooked Rosenstein Admits Hes Running the DOJ AG Jeff Sessions Still AWOL "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

In his recent Hearing before Congress, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein confirmed that he is the man in charge of the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Attorney General Jeff Sessions is no where to be found.

In early July, corrupt Rosenstein and his accomplice at the FBI were questioned regarding the many corrupt and criminal actions taken by their organizations under their tenure.  Rosenstein was questioned by Ohio Representative Jim Jordan who is aware of the many crimes committed by Rod Rosenstein and others in the corrupt FBI and DOJ cabal.  Jordan destroyed Rosenstein in the Hearing at the Capital

When Jordan pushed Rosenstein on why he told corrupt and criminal FBI Investigator Peter Strzok and his FBI attorney the day prior not to share with Congress whether Strzok talked with phony dossier creator and journalist Glenn Simpson, Rosenstein slipped up and replied

Rosenstein Mr. Jordan I appreciate you saying it isnt personal, sometimes it feels that way.  How do I know sir, you interviewed Mr. Strzok, I didnt.  So I cant answer that.

Jordan  Works for you [Rosensteins corrupt DOJ and FBI] doesnt work for us [Congress]!

Trump's Favorability Has Dropped In Every Single State-- And That Will Hurt Republicans In November "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Trump is underwater-- and so is his party-- especially in swing states

We were all aware that Seor Trumpanzees net approval rating-- the percentage of people who approve of the president minus the percentage who disapprove-- has declined nationally since January 2017 but what's a little surprising is that Seor T's net approval has declined in all 50 states since he took office. ALL.50.STATES. The states where he fell the hardest were blue states where people had decided to keep an open mind and to give him a chance after he moved into the White House-- like New Mexico, where he started out with a net approval of +17, Illinois, where he started out with a net approval of +9 and New York, where he started out with a net approval of +8. Ah... those were the days. New Mexico's net approval has taken a nose drive: -14 (down 31 points!). Same with Illinois. The latest net approval was -22 (down 31 points). New York wasn't much better: net approval is now -21... a drop of 29 points.

Some red states are in the process of giving up on Trump as well. Utah was never Trump country but once he moved into the White House Utahans gave him a healthy net approval of +27. It is now 0, meaning positives and negatives are even. Trump is still in positive ground in red, red Oklahoma, where he won every single county in the state and beat Hillary 949,136 (65.3%) to 420,375 (28.9%).

Superior Solution For The SCOTUS Emergency "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Barrett by Chip Proser

by David Leibowitz

Indivisible has recently posted a web page titled The 2-Step Strategy to Win the Supreme Court Fight that clearly lays out the available conventional grassroots tools and strategies for dealing with the SCOTUS emergency. The first step is to block the approval of any Supreme Court nominee during the remainder of the current Senate session. The conventional methods now being brought into play in that effort are worth trying and could succeed, but have a high probability of failure. Neither of the two Republican senators whose cooperation we require is up for re-election this year, with their next general elections being more than two and more than four years away. The three Democratic senators whose cooperation we require are standing for re-election this November--but their primaries are over and their re-election this November seems to be essential if the Democrats are to win control of the Senate next year. The next election at which they could pay any price from the Democratic base for voting yes on a SCOTUS nomination this year is a whopping six years off. The grassroots anger that will erupt immediately following any yes vote by any of the five senators will have been forgotten by virtually all voters by time each senators next election contest rolls around with its fresh current issues. Therefore, all five senators whose cooperation we need in this emergency are effectively free to vote yes for a Trump SCOTUS nominee in 2018 with political impunityand they know it.

Elizabeth Warren and Democrats are very upset that the Trump administration is using DNA testing to link refugee children and illegal aliens to their family members.

Review: Sorry To Bother You Refreshingly Defies Trends Of Corporate Cinema "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Boots Rileys debut film, Sorry To Bother You, is a refreshingly defiant satire featuring magical realism to propel its story and message. The film skewers many ugly aspects of late-stage American capitalism while at the same time giving each main character plenty of space to express themselves, grapple with their role in a system, and choose whether to organize and resist.

Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) lives in Oakland. He is unemployed and desperate for a job. A local company hires him to work as a telemarketer. Faced with the enticement of becoming a power caller and working his way up to the top, where he will be treated like more than a wage slave (and achieve the true American Dream), Green must decide which side he is on in the class war.

Pushing the boundaries of the war on working people is Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), the CEO of WorryFree Solutions. Billboards twistedly encourage those who struggle to get by to join and never worry about employment or their most basic needs ever again. This is an innovative way of selling slave labor to companies that want to keep their labor costs extremely low, and Riley layers on absurdity to explore the moral bankruptcy of WorryFree and those who profit off business with the corporation.

Having telemarketing be the focus of this anti-capitalist tale makes perfect sense. Telemarketers (or call center workers) are employees who face terrible risks of wage theft and other abuses. But also, Riley, founder of the hip-hop group The Coup, quit music when he was a young adult struggling with a bit of a midlife crisis. He committed himself to community organizing but found he was really good at telemarketing and could spend a day every couple of weeks making calls to help him continue political work.

Greens girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson), is a starving artist. She does low-wage jobs to survive and is a strong woman character, who acts as a kind of moral compass for Green throughout the film. Langston (Danny Glover) absolutely steals many of his scenes as a kind of mentor for Green while he navigates the telemarketing world.

Much of the films tone invites comparisons to the work of director Mike Judge in Office Space, Silicon Valley, and especially Idiocracy. The popular reality television show that seems to always be on air is I Got the Shit Kicked Out Of Me, somewhat like Ow My Balls! in Idiocracy.

What distinguishes Rileys universe from the universe in Judges films is how Riley deconstructs capitalism. Judges work skewers people. Idiocracy is a vision of what happens when the population becomes overrun by stupid people who allow corporations to essentially destroy Earth. The decline of civilization is a result of people.

Leftist Blames Trump For Stopping Going To The Gym, Says She Cant Open Jars Now "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

Brigid Delaney is a fitness writer. She recently told the story of how she stopped going to the gym because of Trump. There is literally nothing that the left wont blame on Trump, even their own personal decisions.

She writes at The Guardian:

I stopped going to the gym because of Trump. Now I cant open jars

It was November 2016 and the only person I knew who believed Trump would win the US election was the owner of my gym. This was clearly a ridiculous prediction so, seeing the chance for some easy money, I offered to bet him $100 that Hillary would win.

But the gym owner, clearly not wanting to do his dough, pointed at this horrible thing in the corner with the name sled and said: If Trump wins you have to pull 70kg on it.

It was double what I could usually pull. And, if I won the bet, the gym owner would pull double his personal best

According to the book Trump Revealed: Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didnt work out. When he learned that John ODonnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, You are going to die young because of this.

I didnt want to die young, so I didnt go to the gym.

Now she claims that she is weak and cant open jars.

This is Trump Derangement Syndrome at its finest, folks.

MSNBC Does Not Merely Permit Fabrications Against Democratic Party Critics. It Encourages and Rewards Them. "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

During the 2016 primary and general election campaigns, various MSNBC hosts were openly campaigning for Hillary Clinton. One of the networks programs featured Malcolm Nance (pictured, above), whose background is quite sketchy but who is presented by the cable network (and now by NBC News) as an intelligence expert and former intelligence officer for the U.S. Navy.

On August 20, 2016, weekend host Joy Reid asked Nance about the supposed affinity for Russia harbored by Jill Stein supporters. In response, Nance told MSNBC viewers: Jill Stein has a show on Russia Today. You can still watch the video of this claim here on MSNBCs own website, or see it here:

Whatever your views might be about Jill Stein and her third-party candidacy, there is no disputing the fact that Nances statement was a falsehood, a fabrication, a lie. Jill Stein did not have a show on RT, nor did she ever host a show on RT. What Nance said was made up out of whole cloth fabricated in order to encourage MSNBC viewers to believe that Stein, one of the candidates running against Clinton, was a paid agent of the Kremlin and was an employee of RT.

Reid allowed Nances lie to stand. Perhaps she did not realize at the time that it was a lie. But subsequently, a campaign was launched to urge MSNBC to correct the lie that MSNBC broadcast, based on the assumption that MSNBC which is part of NBC News was a normal news outlet that functions in accordance with basic journalistic principles and would, of course, correct a false statement once that was brought to its attention.

The media watchdog group FAIR repeatedly documented the lie told by Nance and urged MSNBC to issue a correction. The Intercept wrote about thi...

Media Dictatorship "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

New paper by Sergei M. Guriev and Daniel Treisman:

In recent decades, dictatorships based on mass repression have largely given way to a new model based on the manipulation of information. Instead of terrorizing citizens into submission, informational autocrats artificially boost their popularity by convincing the public they are competent. To do so, they use propaganda and silence informed members of the elite by co-optation or censorship. Using several sourcesincluding a newly created dataset of authoritarian control techniqueswe document a range of trends in recent autocracies that fit the theory: a decline in violence, efforts to conceal state repression, rejection of official ideologies, imitation of democracy, a perceptions gap between masses and elite, and the adoption by leaders of a rhetoric of performance rather than one aimed at inspiring fear.
The notion that the internet would make dictatorial information control impossible has been throughly refuted by Russia and China. In the future dictatorial violence will mainly take the form of deniable assassination of rogue journalists.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


by Noah

Scott Pruitt, one of Trump's "Best People" and uber Swamp Thing is gone. It's a nice bit of news but that news has to be tempered with the fact that the new cretin will be every bit as bad, if not worse, for America and the world. The new EPA clown will probably be more clever at hiding his scandals. How could he not be? He'll also probably be better at not drawing so much attention to himself while he continues the Republican Party agenda of destroying the planet for fun, profit, and personal gain. In other words: Meet the new douchebag, same as the old douchebag.

There will always be questions about Scott Pruitt. Questions like: Why is Oklahoma still in the United States, and, how much loot did Pruitt take with him? Did he take his cone of silence? Did he find a taker for a sublet of his $50 a night apartment? Does his used mattress from Trump's Hooker Hotel go with him or is it left behind for his former EPA cohorts to sniff?

I imagine Pruitt leaving his office wearing a hugely oversized heavy coat in Washington's mid-90s July heat and humidity, the coat's inner booster pockets stuffed with all manner of illicit gains. With Pruitt, you can probably follow the money trail easily enough, since it was probably falling out of his overstuffed pockets and the back of his truck all the way home to Oklahoma which, thanks to his efforts, will be a dustbowl once again and, this time, for all time.

By the way, Pruitt was spotted driving back home in this

What Is Trump Most Likely To Give Putin In Helsinki? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Early this morning we looked into the lumbering ape's idiotic foray into Great Falls, Montana. Totally left out that part about North Korea and Kim Jong Un. "We signed," said the imbecile, "a wonderful paper saying they're going to denuclearize their whole thing. It's going to all happen." Maybe he's so popular in Great Falls because the verbal school level is pre-school? Off maybe because the people there like feeling smarter than "the president." First of all, apart from mimicking the verbal skills of a mid-level chimp, he's flat out lying that North Korea has agreed to denuclearize and that "it's going to all happen." There wasn't a binding sentence on "the wonderful" paper he and Kim signed in Singapore, just a p.r. stunt for the two of them who are still at cross-purposes. Infact, last week spy satellites discovered that North Korea is constructing something at a ballistic missile site. Did no one inform Trump? Or did he just leave it out of his idiotic speech so he could play coy?

On person he hasn't fooled is George Will, a conservative critic of the fake president's who's freaking out about what Trump is liable to do when he meets Putin in Helsinki next week, after he (Trump) fucks with NATO to show Putin how loyal he is. "If he does as badly," wrote Will, "in his July 16 meeting with Vladimir Putin in Finland as he did with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, the consequences could be catastrophic." Catastrophic? That's a big fraught word. Well, remember Singapore. What's worse, catastrophic or disastrous?
An exceptionally knowledgeable student of North Korea, the American Enterprise Institutes Nicholas Eberstadt, writing in National Review (Kim Wins in Singapore), says the one-day meeting was for the United States a World Series of unforced errors. The result was that North Korea walked away with a joint communique that read almost as if it had been drafted by the DPRK [Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea] ministry of foreign affairs.

The Individual vs. the Group "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Whenever you use statistical averages to speak about individuals, you run the risk of obscuring more than you reveal. When the data is all over the place, the average can be a meaningless number, and even when there is a normal distribution the outliers may violate all your conclusions.

When it comes to human psychology, things are even worse. This new study found that not only did the averaging statistics hide a lot of variation between individuals, it also masked a lot of variation within individuals, that is, in how they tested from one day to the next.

This study was about depression and anxiety, and it was supposed to measure things like how strongly the two are correlated. What it found was that the standard deviation for individuals, from one day to the next, was eight times greater than the standard deviation for the data set as a whole.

The mean values may still be useful for something, but doing those statistics actually obscures the most fascinating finding of the study, which is about variation: not only do our moods vary a lot, but the correlations between different parts of our moods vary a lot, too. For example, the study tried to determine if brooding is correlated with depression, and the answer was that if you average the data from all 1043 participants, yes, but for you it will depend on what day it is.

For describing human societies, averages are essential, but for getting to know any particular person they are worse than useless. Even the average of one person's behavior may not tell you anything about how he or she will act on any given day.

Radical Lesbians Hijack London Gay Pride Parade Force Mayor Khan to Walk Behind Them "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Radical transphobic lesbians hijacked the London Gay Pride Parade on Saturday.

Sadiq Khan cut the ribbon to start this years parade but was quickly pushed behind the radical lesbians.

Pink News reported:

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has condemned protesters who hijacked the Pride in London parade and distributed anti-transgender resources.

PinkNews reported live from the Pride in London march earlier today (July 7) as a group of radical feminist campaigners forced their way into the front of the march.

After brief negotiations Pride in London organisers took the decision not to remove the protesters, who subsequently led the Pride parade across much of its route bearing the sign Transactivism erases lesbians while distributing anti-transgender leaflets

The Mayor was initially meant to lead the march, but for much of the route was stuck behind the protesters.

The decision to allow the protesters to take the head of the Pride parade has led to strong criticism of Pride in London, with some LGBT campaigners calling on organisers to resign.

LGBT+ Lib Dems. Chair Jennie Rigg said I am appalled that transphobic protesters were allowed to lead the march and the crowd asked to cheer them on. This is a betrayal of the thousands marching. The Pride organisers should resign and offer a full apology.

The End Of The Road For Dave Brat? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


The Democratic establishment was happy, happy in far right extremist Dave Brat's 7th congressional district in Virginia. There was a fairly evenly matched race between two moderates-- at DWT, when we use the word "moderate," we mean moderate, not conservative the way the Beltway media uses it. Both Democrats, ex-CIA agent Abigail Spanberger and marine Daniel Ward, raised around $900,000, just as Brat had. Not counting very small policy nuances most voters would never pick up on, the main difference between Spanberger and Ward was gender. Both had worked in the Obama administration. And the woman CIA officer beat the male marine. Neither looked like a Randy Bryce or Alexandria Ocasio to me. On the other hand, neither is a Jeff Van Drew or Kyrsten Sinema either. Like I said, both are moderates. Spanberger knocked Ward out solidly-- 33,198 (72.65%) to 12,495 (27.35%).

The district, which has an R+6 PVI, stretches from the Culpeper area through Orange County and most of Spotsylvania County down to Nottoway County, with big populations of voters in Chesterfield and Henrico counties in the Richmond suburbs. Trump beat Hillary there 50.5% to 44.0%. McCain and Romney both did better than Trump and Obama did about the same as Hillary.

In the 2014 Republican primary, Brat came out of nowhere-- actually came out of a cohesive, well-organized grassroots effort that shocked the establishment-- to beat Eric Cantor 36,110 (55.5%) to 28,898 (44.5%). Democrat Jack Trammell took Brat on in the general-- and was destroyed-- 60.8% to 36.9%. Democrat Eileen Bedell did better in 2016-- taking 42.2% to Brat's 57.5%. November, though, may be the time for the Democrats to flip the seat. Though Brat, reported the Chesterfield Observer 2 weeks ago, "still stands a good chance of winning the Republican leaning 7th, political analysts say the district is in play like never before. And as national politics continue to dominate the headlines, Democrats hope to pin some of President Donald Trumps more unpopular...

The feature film began filming on June 15, and has already had to replace three local actors and various crew members.

Loeb told the Hollywood Reporter that last week a woman wearing a headset approached and asked: Are you the director?

When I told her I was, she told me to go f-ck myself, Loeb recalls. Then she threw her headset on the ground and walked off. I found out later she was our electrician.

The production team has been working under a secret fake name to avoid locations backing out, but still, at Louisiana State University Loeb says, we were told we were rejected due to our content, even though it will be a PG-rated film. They refused to put it in writing, but they told us on the phone it was due to content.

A synagogue in New Orleans that they were using for catering and as a place for crew and extras to hang out also backed out over the content.

Once they found out what the film was about, they locked us out. We had to call the police so that the extras and caterers could retrieve their possessions, Loeb told THR.

The director also quit on the first day of shooting, leaving Loeb and Allyn are co-directing.

The location manager for their scenes in Washington, D.C., quit after doing some research online and claiming that she is a staunch pro-abortion feminist activist.

I have been doing research on the movie trying to figure out who is producing and what the gist of the story is, and I finally found it, and so I am withdrawing from this project. I am a staunch pro-abortion feminist activist, and I will not be party to such horrible propaganda, the former location manager wrote in an email to production.

The film will feature Holly...

BUSTED: Democrat Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Is Caught Fudging Her Bio on Campaign Website "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Democrat Socialist darling Ocasio-Cortez sent shock waves through the Democrat Party when she defeated the fourth most powerful Democrat in the House of Representatives, Rep. Joe Crowley, in the New York primary in June.

The Democrat Socialists of America support no borders, no profit, no prisons and no cash bail.

But now Ocasio Cortez is coming under fire for fudging her bio page on her campaign website.

Ocasio-Cartez claimed she commuted to school everyday 40 minutes from her home in the Bronx.

She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40 minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.

But after she got caught the Socialist Democrat changed her bio to reflect that she was not commuting 40 minutes a day which was a complete lie.

She ended up attending public school in Yorktown40 minutes north of her birthplace. As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx and her daily student life. It was clear to her, even then, that the zip code a child was born in determined much of their destiny.

Walk Away: Leftists Abuse St. Jude Family Who Thanked Eric Trump For Raising Millions of Dollars to Help Children With Cancer "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Nothing is too low for leftists; theyll even attack a family with a precious little boy battling cancer.

A Memphis, Tennessee woman was on the receiving end of abuse from leftists after she decided to thank Eric Trump for donating and helping raise millions of dollars to help fund St. Jude childrens hospital.

Eric Trump and the Trump Organization donated and helped raise $16 million dollars to fund St. Jude childrens hospital to help families pay for cancer treatments for children.

A Tennessee woman was emotional and grateful after watching how the doctors and staff at St. Jude saved her nephew, Zacharys life after he was diagnosed with cancer.

The woman was so grateful, she decided to tweet a little thank you note to Eric Trump.

Thank you for your commitment to St. Jude. This St. Jude family is eternally grateful, the woman said in a tweet.

Eric Trump eventually saw her tweet and responded to her.

Trump tweeted: . is the best cause in the world! It has truly been one of the most important and meaningful missions of my life.

From this moment on, the woman said she and her little nephew were on the receiving end of an onslaught of pure hatred from leftists.

She received so much hatred, she decided to post a #WalkAway video describing her experience.

Nothing it too low for todays Democrats. They even attack a family with a child suffering from cancer simply because they thanked Eric Trump.

Managing the Emperor "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Drawing by Marian Kamensky/Cartoon Movement, Octover 2017.

We have a question from The New York Times:

Trump Starts a Trade War, but Does He Have a Plan to Win It?


Spoiler alert: He doesn't have a plan. He never has a plan, from the chaos of MuslimBan 1.0 a week after inauguration to the ongoing chaos of the Central American parent-child separation program, and the people who work for him don't have a plan either, whether because they simply don't have the ability or because there's some problem with what Trump wants them to do, like Mexico really isn't going to pay for the wall. In a sense he's the true Underpants Gnome president:
  • Phase one: Collect wall-building funds from Mexico
  • Phase two: ?????????
  • Phase three: Profit!!
What he has is a sense of how great he's going to look when he's successful, which is what he means by saying he "keeps his promises". He's going to look the way he told them he'd look, at the campaign rallies, and if the staff doesn't make him look that way they need to go.

Thus poor Pompeo, trying to work him through his fantasy of "solving" North Korea:
  • Phase one: Show the North Koreans you're tough
  • Phase two: ??????????
  • Phase three: Everything's cool!
Interested parties in South Korea (above all, and let me emphasize that President Moon Jae-in and Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha are still the only characters in this story I unambivalently approve of), Russia and China, and not least in Foggy Bottom, tried to make this narrative look real, and to give the impression that...

Body Language Expert: Rod Rosenstein Confirmed Obama Administration Spied on Trump Campaign Much Earlier than Stated "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

An Internet body language expert (Bombards Body Language) reviewed the recent Congressional Hearings with corrupt Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and his accomplice FBI Director Christopher Wray.  Her analysis shows that Rosenstein confirmed to Congress through his body language that the Obama Administration spied on the Trump Campaign long before they state the spying began (July 2016).

The expert from Bombards Body Language again released an excellent analysis of the corrupt left wing members and this time it was of dishonest Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and his accomplice FBI Director Christopher Wray in front of Congress.

During her 45 minute analysis, the expert points out at the 15 minute mark that Rosenstein confirms that the Obama Administration spied on the Trump Campaign before the date they earlier stated was when their illegitimate spying began.

Rosensteins actions show that he either has no conscious or is on some sort of drug.  This is either the case or Rosenstein is the the devil as pointed out by the Internet expert.

The days of Obamas crooks and cronies are numbered.  President Trump and the America loving members of Congress are taking them on.

TRUMP Attorneys Demand Evidence of Crime Before Allowing Dirty Cop Mueller Interview with President "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Former New York Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told Dirty Cop Robert Mueller and his team of far left attorneys that President Trump will not testify before the special counsel unless they can show evidence of a crime committed.

After a year and a half of investigating the Mueller witch hunt has not uncovered a single crime of collusion. But his attorneys have managed to harass and abuse several members of the Trump campaign.

The only crime they can point to is that the Obama administration sent spies inside the the Trump campaign something Democrats and the media are defending.

FOX News reported

President Trumps lawyers have told FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller that they want him to produce evidence that Trump has committed a crime before they agree for the president to be interviewed as part of Muellers Russia investigation.

Rudy Giuliani, the top lawyer on the legal team, told Fox News on Saturday he is asking Mueller for a factual basis for the investigation before the team considers allowing Trump to be interviewed by Muellers team.

Trump and his team have become increasingly frustrated with how long Muellers probe is taking to complete, and Trump in particular has taken a more aggressive stance toward Mueller since the Department of Justice criticized the FBIs actions in 2016 in relation to the Hillary Clinton email probe.

The new demands by Trumps legal team indicate that it is likely to take a more aggressive and combative stance toward Mueller going forward.

Karma in Kuala Lumpur "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The Equanimity, photo by Yoan Ari/AP via Australian Broadcasting Company.
On Wednesday, Dato' Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, Najib Razak for short, the son of Malaysia's second prime minister Tun Abdul Razak and nephew of the third prime minister Dato' Hussein Onn, and himself the nation's sixth prime minister, serving from 2009 until just a couple of months ago, was arrested and charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust over a sum of 42 million Malaysian ringgit (US $10.6 million) from a finance company called SRC International, which had wandered into the prime minister's own bank acccount. That's only a fraction of the $731 million Najib is alleged to have siphoned from SRC's parent, the government-run investment fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) that Najib created in his first year as PM, in a case being run by prosecutors in the United States, money that Najib and his wife had largely converted into luxury goods that have been seized from his various properties, including 567 handbags, 2,200 rings and 14 tiaras, and a $27.3-million pink diamond necklace.

Which is in turn only a fraction of the $4.5 billion extracted from 1MDB by a conspiracy led, apparently, not by the exprime minister but by a close associate of his, the now fugitive financier Low Taek Jho, who may be the owner of the 54th largest yacht in the world, the 90-meter Equanimity (sleeps 28 crew and 18 guests) seized by Indonesian authorities as it sailed from Lombok to Bali last March.


The political part of this story is utterly fascinating in its own right, but also interesting in a couple of immediately relevant aspects, first of all because of the way it relates to "identity politics", since Malaysia has been governed from the outset of independence from Britain in 1957 by a coalition that looks like the nightmare Republicans are trying to frighten you with when they use the term.

Is There A Lesson To Be Learned About Trump From Pruitt, Manafort And Brazil's Soybean Farmers? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The White House by Nancy Ohanian

The worst-run White House ever? You bet! Just ask Susan Glasser at the New Yorker. She wrote about "The Trump Unchained era," in which Seor T has "effectively unleashed himself from the strictures, processes, and constraints that Kelly" and every other aide has "sought to impose on him... not even a brusque Marine general with a chest full of medals, is going to bring order" to a psychopath illegitimate occupant of the White House determined to have his own way, no matter who gets hurt. "Its now clear that Trump is making major decisions without even a nod to the process and order that Kelly was supposedly bringing to his office; no one pretends that major moves, such as the risky nuclear summit with North Korea or recent conflicts with Congress over immigration and the budget, are the result of anything other than [Trumpanzee's] own spur-of-the-moment strategizing... Turnover among the White House staff, already record-setting in Trumps first year, has spiked recently, now that no one is really in charge."

Of course, not everyone gets hurt by all this.

Democrats, Fake News Media and Law Firm Perkins Coie Try to Take Down Honest Jim Jordan with Disgusting, Scurrilous Charges "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Tough and honest Representative Jim Jordan from Ohio is a potential candidate for Speaker of the House and is a tenacious member of the House Freedom Caucus.  Jordan again shows that if you are an outstanding voice of the American people and you love this country and want to make it great again, then you are a target of the Democrat Party, Fake News MSM and the Democrats top legal firm, Perkins Coie. 

Representative Jordan is under attack because he is on to the many crimes committed by Rod Rosenstein and others in the corrupt FBI and DOJ cabal.  He destroyed Rosenstein last week in an interview at the Capital.

Jordan is a former two-time NCAA Division I wrestling champion in college. If you ever met an NCAA All-American wrestler you know that they are some of the toughest individuals you will ever encounter in your lifetime.  This explains Jordans demeanor on the House floor.

Because he is so good and a candidate to take over the Speaker of the House from the current retiring and ineffective anti-Trump Speaker Paul Ryan, Jordan is now under attack.  This past week Jordan was accused of covering up a sex scandal by the Democrats and their favorite law firm Perkins Coie while Jordan was an assistant coach during graduate school at (The) Ohio State University while he .

According to a post on Reddit (with minor grammar and spelling edits)

Perkins Coie was announced as the OSU investigative partner relative to a potential cover up of sexual abuse and misconducts allegedly perpetrated by Dr. Richard Strauss who was employed by the Ohio state University from the mid-1970 to the 1990. Strauss died in 2005.

Source https://news.osu.edu/news/2018/05/03/investigation-update/

The OSU, like any other American colleges, has its fair share of monsters. The latest being Christopher Pelloski, the guy who was treating children with cancer while trading in child porn from his college computer for six years till he got busted.

Unlike Pelloski, Richard Strauss had a full career and NEVER was bothered by the authorities. Which is weird. Not unusual but weird that the good doctor spent 20 years abusing University students, mostly from the wrestling team and nothing filtered out until today?

Flashback=> Worst President in History on Manufacturing in the US: Those Jobs Are Just Not Going to Come Back "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Barack Obama, the worst president in modern history, was asked in June 2016 about the Carrier Corp jobs in Indiana and the loss of manufacturing jobs in America.

Obama responded:

Some of those jobs are just not going to come back When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who Im not going to advertise for, that hes going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exectly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? Theres uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. Im going to negotiate a better deal. Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesnt have an answer.

Of course, Barack Obama was not honest about creating manufacturing jobs in the US.
According to manufacturing employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, since Mr. Obama took office in 2009, the U.S. lost about 303,000 manufacturing jobs. Its not clear even how he spins that into a positive.

President Trump has kept his promise.

Fake News: AP Report that Army Was Purging Immigrants Was Not True "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The US Department of Defense strongly pushed back against a recent report by the Associated Press that the Army was purging immigrants.

The US Army came out and said there is no new policy for immigrants in the armed forces.

This was the latest report by the liberal media to create hysteria on the left regarding President Trumps immigration policy.

Of course, the fake news story went viral in liberal circles.

Bizpac Review reported:

In a report published this week, the Associated Press claimed that the U.S. Army is quietly discharging immigrant recruits. But the implied message that the administration is targeting immigrants even in the military, while met with outrage, turned out to be not what it appeared.

The AP story quoted a retired U.S. Army colonel about 40 recruits who were hoping to obtain citizenship and had been abruptly dismissed from the military recruiting program, known as MAVNI (Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest), which began in 2009 under former President George W. Bush to meet the militarys need for immigrants with certain special language skills, Fox News reported.

The program, which was suspended last year due to concerns that the Defense Department was unable to properly vet candidates, saw 10,000 immigrants become naturalized citizens since its start. The 40 recruits in question in the AP report had issues with their security clearances and were not summarily discharged.

Any recruit who receives an unfavorable security screening is deemed unsuitable for military service and is administratively discharged, Army spokeswoman Lt. Col. Nina Hill said Friday.

Several immigrants to the United States became citizens after serving in the US military.

Bad News For Congressional Republicans-- Followed By More Bad News For Congressional Republicans "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


That tweet from the wee hours of Friday morning will be the GOP midterm campaign platform. I don't think Democrats are shaking in their boots. It's a single-minded Trump-base strategy-- something to appeal to the low-IQ people who go to his rallies for a night of entertainment and meaning. He must have been all worked up after his exhilarating rally in Great Falls, Montana. Great Falls, with the population of under 60,000, is the county seat of Cascade County. It's the heart of Trump Country. In the 2016 primaries, Trump eviscerated Cruz-- 8,129 (74.7%) to 830 (7.6%). And Cascade County was all his in the general as well-- 57.0% to 35.5%. Far more tickets had been given away than there was space in ExpoPark so, thousand of Trump fans were turned away. He planned it that way. He "boasted about the size of the crowds he draws, saying he's 'broken virtually every record' and again calling his inaguration crowd a 'big monster' crowd. He said if there had been empty seats instead of vastly more tickets given out than could fit in the 6,600-capacity arena, he would be mocked. Instead, he should be mocked for all the bullshit was spouting all evening.

After a little anti-McCain routine, he went after George H.W. Bush: "Thousand points of light? What does that mean? I know one thing. Make America Great Again we understand.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


by Noah

Every Christmas, far right loons like the barely coherent smug fratboy Tucker Carlson and screaming banshee Jeanine Pirro go on endless bitch-a-thons about towns across America that have stopped displaying Nativity scene creches on public property. The righties wring their hands, play their worn to a frazzle victim cards and cry that their "religious beliefs" are under attack. It's all part of their big whine about a so-called "War on Christmas" and "War on Christianity"; never mind that this pathetic greek chorus of whining is perpetrated by some of the most unchristian people one could ever meet.

At the real center of the issue lie the issues of free speech and the concept of the separation of church and state. Is it right for the government, local or otherwise, to appear to endorse one religion over another, etc. The solution is often to remove the creche from government property to private land. No one is tearing down the churches of the whiners and bitchers. Put your creche on the lawn of your church or your own lawn, your own property. One would think that would satisfy them except that, like all religious fanatics, they would prefer to have the right to force their beliefs on all. It's the Republican way; American Taliban and all that.

he town of Boca Raton, Florida once reached a compromise on the creche matter. The Christmas creche was allowed to stay as long as another group was allowed to put a Satanic display next to it. Seems fair, and, it is Florida, after all.

OUTRAGE! Media Falsely Smears Pro-Trump Teens Abused at Whataburger for Being Racists "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The news media is at it again. The teen who filmed the MAGA hat attack and theft by Kino Jiminez at a San Antonio, Texas, Whataburger restaurant denies accusations reported by the mediaand then retracted (by only some news sites)that he and his friends provoked the attack by allegedly saying racist remarks: an article was released saying someone who was in the restaurant (even tho the only ones in the restaurant was my group and the guy who confronted uss group.) said that we had provoked the man with racial slurs and much worse things, which never happenedthis article was pulled due to concerns about the legitimacy of the statements.

The video of the attack that went viral (10,700,000 views on Twitter and counting) does not include what led up to the attack, but it does show the attacker using racist language and not complaining about the boys doing so.

End The Korean War! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I have some pretty severe things were thinking about, Trump said of North Korea at a news conference in Warsaw. Doesnt mean were going to do them.

What President Trump really meant is that he has painted the US into a corner with all his threats of war and really does not know what to do next.   North Korea called his or else bluff.  Good.  No action on North Korea is better than any conceivable military operation.

Last week the North Korea test fired a new, longer-ranged strategic missile, Hwasong-14, that US experts claimed was capable of hitting Alaska and perhaps even San Francisco.   North Korea is now believed to have mastered a lightweight nuclear warhead that can be carried by the Hwasong and shorter-ranged Taepodong and Nodong missiles.

North Korea cant today seriously threaten North America with missile strikes, but it probably will by 2019.   Meanwhile, North Korean nuclear and conventionally-armed missiles (and this could include poison gas and biological warheads) today threaten the 80,000 plus US military personnel based in Japan, South Korea and Guam.  They would be immediate targets should the US and South Korea attack the north.

Add tens of millions of South Korean and Japanese civilians who are at risk of North Korean retaliation.   Half of South Koreas capitol, Seoul, is within range of North Korean heavy artillery and rocket batteries dug into the so-called Demilitarized Zone.

It would take only three nuclear weapons to shatter Japan and just two to cripple South Korea, not to mention polluting the globe with radioactive dust and contaminating North Asias water sources.  Nuclear explosions would spread radioactive contamination over northern China and Pacific Russia.

Why are we even talking about nuclear war in North Asia?

Because North Korea has scraped and skimped for decades to build nuclear weapons for the sole reason of deterring a major US attack, including the use by the US of tactical nuclear weapons.  Pakistan ate grass for decades to afford nuclear weapons to offset the threat from far more powerful India.  Israel uses the same argument to justify its large nuclear arsenal.

After Washington overthrew the rulers of Iraq and Libya, it became painfully apparent that small nations without nuclear weapons were vulnerable to US regime change operations.  The North Koreans, who are very eccentric but not stupid, rushed to accelerate their nuclear weapons and delivery systems.

Almost equally important, North Korea boasts one of the words biggest armies 1,020,000 men, 88,000 crack special forces, and an trained militia of over 5 million.  The Norths weapons are obsolescent; its small air forces and navy will be vaporized by US power but its troops are deeply dug into the mountainous terrain an...

The Never-Trumpers Are Never Coming Back "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

With never-Trump conservatives bailing on the GOP and crying out for the Party of Pelosi to save us, some painful truths need to be restated.

The Republican Party of Bush I and II, of Bob Dole and John McCain, is history. Its not coming back. Unlike the Bourbons after the Revolution and the Terror, after Napoleon and the Empire, no restoration is in the cards.

It is over. The GOPs policies of recent decades the New World Order of George H.W. Bush, the crusades for democracy of Bush II failed, and are seen as having failed. With Trumps capture of the party they were repudiated.

There will be no turning back.

What were the historic blunders?

It was not supporting tax cuts, deregulation, conservative judges and justices, or funding a defense second to none. Donald Trump has delivered on these as well as any president since Reagan.

The failures that killed the Bush party, and that represented departures from Reaganite traditionalism and conservatism, are:

First, the hubristic drive, despite the warnings of statesmen like George Kennan, to exploit our Cold War victory and pursue a policy of permanent containment of a Russia that had lost a third of its territory and half its people.

We moved NATO into Eastern Europe and the Baltic, onto her doorstep. We abrogated the ABM treaty Nixon had negotiated and moved defensive missiles into Poland. John McCain pushed to bring Ukraine and Georgia into NATO, and even to send U.S. forces to face off against Russian troops.

Thus we got a second Cold War that need never have begun and that our allies seem content to let us fight alone.

Europe today is not afraid of Vladimir Putin reaching the Rhine. Europe is afraid of Africa and the Middle East reaching the Danube.

Let the Americans, who relish playing empire, pay for NATO.

Second, in a reflexive response to 9/11, we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, dumped over the regime in Libya, armed rebels to overthrow Bashar Assad in Syria, and backed Saudi intervention in a Yemeni civil war, creating a humanitarian crisis in that poorest of Arab countries that is exceeded in horrors only by the Syrian civil war.

Since Y2K, hundreds of thousands in the Middle East have perished, the ancient Christian community has all but ceased to exist, and the refugees now number in the millions. What are the gains for democracy from these wars, all backed enthusiastically by the Republican establishment?

Why are the people responsible for these wars still being listened to, rather than confessing their sins at second-thoughts conferences?

The GOP elite also played a crucial role in throwing open U.S. markets to China and ceding transna...

Medieval Libertarianism "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The stateless Middle Ages were the only example of a functioning anarchic order in the West.

The Reactionary Libertarianism of Frank van Dun, by Richard Storey.

Forgive the length of this post and the multiple links.  I am thinking it is necessary to capture and summarize my thoughts on this topic, and have found this work by Storey to be a good vehicle through which to do so.

Storey offers a summary of his conversation with Frank van Dun (FvD).  Storey introduces the piece with his starting point:

Like many anarcho-capitalist libertarians, I believed that the Church, far from being a hindrance to state growth, was the primary promoter of centralised statism in Northern Europe.

Storey offers a summary of his view how he came to reach this conclusion.  He reached out to FvD, hoping to maybe learn something but also to receive confirmation of his views.  As you can tell from his past-tense use of believed, Storey received much more of the learning than he did the confirming.

Except where noted, the remainder of this post (to include the quote at the top of this post) offers some excerpts from FvDs response to Storey.  So there is no confusion about where FvD is headed, he begins his response:

Most of your comments fit what is still the PC-view of the medieval period and the role of the Church in it.

I began my education on this topic by reading Fritz Kerns Kingship and Law in the Middle Ages.  I learned that the Dark Ages were not so dark; serfs had far more freedom and protection in the law than we do today; every individual could veto the decision of his lord if proper cause could be demonstrated; medieval law was the most consistent expression of libertarian law to be found in the west (and likely the world); and a written constitution serve...

Globalists Are at the Apex of Panic "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Theres a reason to be optimistic as the two leaders of two Cold War superpower antagonists have their leaders displaying a certain level of mutual respect, and so is the case between both peoples in matters of global concern, in spite of the wild acoustics coming from the Old Mainstream Media.

Although weve been very skeptical about the current US administration about its rhetoric, the events on the ground suggest that advanced information were shared prior to the actual bombings in Syria, and the purely theatrical display of US military might in Afghanistan more than a year ago, which enabled the targets to prepare.

In those instances no major civilian casualties were reported. This explains why the Deep State media are still not satisfied with Trumps militarist action, and they want him out before they lost their privileged social standing, as covert operators are systematically exposing their darker side for everyone to see.

Here are some of the Deep State media headlines illustrating those frustrations:

Globalists Are in Panic Mode Because of Putin-Trump Summit

Judging by the reaction of the US mainstream media, the world, as we know it, will end in July when Donald Trump meets Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Pundits fear that Putin and Trump will strike a deal that will ruin the current world order.

But why do they think that a deal between the US president and the Russian leader is a bad thing? Why do they say that leaving Putin and Trump unsupervised in the same room is a doomsday scenario? Their reasons have nothing to do with American interests. The US media and its expert community is nothing more than an external marketing and PR department for the US military-industrial complex and peace is bad for its business. The Helsinki summi...

Imperial Hubris "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

There have been two developments in the past month that illustrate clearly what is wrong with the White Houses perception of Americas place in the world. Going far beyond the oft-repeated nonsense that the United States is somehow the leader of the free world, the Trump Administration has taken several positions that sustain the bizarre view that such leadership can only be exercised if the United States is completely dominant in all relevant areas. Beyond that, Washington is now also asserting that those who do not go along with the charade and abide by the rules laid down will be subject to punishment to force compliance.

The first issue has to do with outer space. There is an international treaty agreed to in 1967, the so-called Outer Space Treaty, which has been signed by 107 countries including most Europeans, Russia, China and the United States. Conventional weapons or electronic systems designed to protect orbiting satellites from attack are permitted over where the atmosphere ends 62 miles above the Earths surface, but outer space is supposed to be free to all. The treaty also forbids any colonization or appropriation of the moon or planets by any national authority.

President Donald Trump apparently is not familiar with the treaty. Speaking before an audience at the National Space Council on June 18th, he said that he was, on his own presidential authority hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forcesour destiny, beyond the Earth, is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security. It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space.

The idea that the US would seek to have a major presence in space would probably surprise no one, but Trump is saying something quite different. He is creating a military command for space, the moon and the planets and is intent on using that to support an offensive capability that provides dominance in those areas. As no one in his right mind would allow Washington to militarily dominate outer space based on its track record of irresponsible leadership since 9/11, the Trump proposal should be and will be opposed by virtually the entire world.

A fantasy of space dominance is a symptom of a governing class that cannot distinguish between what is important and what is not. It is rooted in a nation that has been constantly fed fear since 9/11 even though it is not threatened. Iran, the second issue surfaced recently, is part of that alleged threat matr...

Russia Welcomes White South African Refugees? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Recall what I wrote on the fate of white South African population in March.

While blind and hypocritical West was hailing their thoroughly fake idol of Nelson Mandela, the Republic of South Africa was slowly being consumed by unprecedented black racism and non-stop assault on white Afrikaners. Rape, murder, robbery, barbed wire electrified fences around white South African communitiesthese are defining characteristics of modern South Africa. In generalit has NO FUTURE. The expropriation of land from white farmers will be their death knell, literally. Like in Zimbabwe, they will be raped, murdered, pillaged and whatever else comes with Zimbabwean, now South African justice.  The so called West, which still believes in own lies about South African democracy and benevolence of BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) and of ANC WILL NOT accept white Afrikaners when real white exodus starts, nor will the United States do sothe combined West prefers today anybody but white, predominantly Christian people. The fate of Afrikaners is in question today and those people need desperately safe haven to start their lives over. Modern West is not it. 

The delegation of Boers is currently in Russia, namely in Stavropol Region, and is discussing resettlement of 15,000 Afrikaners to the area (in Russian). The process is obviously not going to be simplefor starters there are very few huge land lots, which Boers got used to own in South Africa, in Stavropol. Boers love hot climate and, obviously, an abundance of the land, say in the Far East, is not going to work. The issue of Boers Protestant faith, however, seems to be less profound because local population is generally positively inclined towards having Boers community and Boers themselves already stated that they are not going to be enclosed into own community. Russians do care about peoples honesty and labor ethics first and foremost and Boers easily pass this test. The condition for Boers is, and these are not poor families, to have half-million dollars per family to invest into the economy of the region, which comes naturally once the issue of settlement is, well, settled.

But whatever the outcome of all this is, the whole notion that Boers see Russia as a possible new homeland is telling and it is huge in its implications. It is happening, as I predicted a few years ago, that white Christian peoples (which is by definitiona European root) will increasingly see Russia as their salvation. That is why this Putins message at Valdai Forum last year was enormously important. Listen attentively again what he is saying both openly and impli...

Summer of Tough Love "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The golden Colossus of Trump looms over the national scene this summer like one of Jeff Koonss giant, shiny, balloon-puppy sculptures a monumental expression of semiotic vacancy. At the apogee of Trumpdom, everythings coming up covfefe. The stock market is 5000 points ahead since 1/20/17. Little Rocket Man is Americas bitch. Were showing those gibbering Asian hordes and European caf layabouts a thing or two about fair trade. Electric cars are almost here to save the day. And soon, American youth will be time-warping around the solar system in the new US Space Corps!

Enjoy it while you can. Events are converging ominously this summer in the direction of unwinding expectations and serial train wrecks of finance and politics. Mr. Trump has made hubris simple by bragging on the supposed triumphs of his economy. When it blows up, hell own that, too, and the second half of 2018 liable to be a debris-field of shattered national economies, zombie corporations, and floundering institutions.

A new supreme court justice will be the very apex of Trump triumphalism, but whoever the pick is will goad the Democratic progressives to new depths of antagonism, so expect more street-fighting by the black-masked Antifa forces during the senate confirmation debate. Some sort of martial law will be invoked by a governor, or perhaps even the president himself. Initially that would amount to little more than curfews, but theyll be ignored, and then the fun will really begin. Think: national guard troops and angry clashes. The tone will be low, and sinking fast.

If Antifa acts up the way I anticipate, it will drag the Democratic Party closer to extinction. The party celebrated a week ago over the rise of Evita Peron wannabe, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her youth and glamour intersect with her socialism, a doctrine that caused more human deaths in the 20th century than all the religious wars of the previous centuries. Whats not to like about it?

The blowup of the bond and stock markets later this year will put to a gloomy rest the ludicrous notion that America has been enjoying a great economic boom. Its actually been an engineered hallucination, thanks to the global monetary authorities applying the magic of limitless credit to a bad habit of credulous speculation. The central banks have launched a program of so-called quantitative tightening (QT) an idiotic phrase meant to counterpoise the equally fatuous quantitative easing (QE), PhD economist-speak for grotesque interference in the bond markets that will choke down the credit supply at exactly the moment that governments and giant corporations need new loans to pay the interest on old loans. The trajectory there is obvious.

The big question, of course hardly ever asked in the public arena is what that will do to currencies, i.e., money. It can really...

US Debt Explosion "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Can investors really be that wrong? Global risk is today greater than ever in history and at the same time the great majority of investors show no fear at all. There are so many potential catalysts that could shake the world economy out of its sweet dreams into a living nightmare that it is impossible to forecast where the trigger will come from. It could be a debt collapse in Japan, China, USA, Eurozone or emerging markets. Or it could be a currency collapse in any of those regions. Or it could be a stock market collapse, or it could be , or it could be

Many stock markets around the world are at all-time highs. But there is no fear and no serious selling. Any slight decline is a buying opportunity. The S&P is up 4x since 2009 but that does not make investors nervous. That markets have been fuelled by dangerous and unsustainable credit expansion does not concern markets. Not even that global debt has doubled since 2006.

CHANGE STARTS IN THE PERIPHERY

But change starts in the periphery where very few are looking. Look at China where the Shanghai composite is down 23% since January. And look at Brazil where the Bovespa is off 17% so far this year and Turkey which has lost 20%.

What is important to understand is that most major markets are now looking extremely vulnerable, be it Japan, Germany or the US. Fundamentally most markets are overvalued with the help of central bank liquidity. Also, technically we are not far from crashes in most markets. Whilst there is always a possibility of a last hurrah, it looks like all markets have topped, including the US, and that later in 2018 we will see major falls. Once the bear markets start, they are likely to turn into secular trends that last many years and result in falls of 75% to 95%. Difficult to believe for most investors today, but nobody in 1929 believed that the Dow would fall 90% in the ensuing years and take 25 years to recover.

PROSPERITY BUILT ON DEBT IS SHORT LIVED

The investment world has been lulled into a permanent state of security and euphoria. Hard to deny that central banks and governments have been extremely skilful in telling the world constant lies. And why would anyone protest, as the rich are getting incredibly rich and many normal people in the West have a higher standard of living than ever. Very few of the normal people understand that their prosperity is built on personal debt and their government borrowing more than ever. Nor do they understand that they are responsible for this debt that they of course can never repay.

Even less do they understand that they will be on their own when debt implodes and they lose their jobs. Because the state will at that point have run out of money and there will be no social security or unemploy...

8 OTC Items "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In preparation for an emergency situation in the medical realm, there are some fairly inexpensive OTC items that could potentially save your life during an SHTF situation. Now I am NOT a doctor, and I dont play one on TV.  Im just a mom who has used each of these remedies to affect my familys health for the better.

While life can perhaps seem hard from time to time, the truth is that we have it pretty easy right now.  We have electricity to run our homes.  We have air conditioning to keep us cool in the summer.  In the winter we have furnaces which keep us nice and snug.  We have (relatively) clean water piped directly into our houses, and the waste is drained directly away.  We have food in our refrigerators and a grocery store just down the street (or highway) to which we can go if we need more food.  We have access to medical professionals if we become sick or injured.  These are all wonderful things!

But what if all of those were taken away?  What if we no longer had electricity, running water, air conditioning, and/or easy access to food or medical care?  If we had to go it alone life would be H-A-R-D. And medical problems would be even harder.

Lets dive right into these OTC items that are potentially lifesaving.

Activated charcoal

Activated charcoal history goes all the way back to 3750 BC in Egypt.  The Egyptians used it to help create bronze.  By 1500 BC, the Egyptians used it to treat the stench of putrefying skin wounds (without realizing that it would help the wound itself). They also used it internally to treat intestinal ailments.  Later, around 400 BC, the Phoenicians realized that it had antiseptic properties.  They would char the inside of their water barrels for long sea voyages to keep the water inside those barrels pure.  By AD 50 Hippocrates and Pliny the Elder started using it as medicine.   After that, it was lost as a remedy for almost 1700 years.  Between 1700 and 1800, it was rediscovered and used as a medicine again.  It became popular to use it in poultices, treatments for ulcers, and nosebleeds.

Just last century, however, activated charcoal used to be used in hospitals to treat overdoses, accidental or otherwise.  Vets still use it when animals ingest something potentially dangerous.  While activated charcoal is available today even in drugstores such as Walgreens or CVS.  Their brands are capsulized but contain fillers and even colors. I would recommend purchasing it in bulk from Amazon.

Ive used activated charcoal successfully both internally a...

Kidnappers: The Tyranny of Child Protective Services "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

242 years ago American colonists declared independence from England, in the name of personal liberty.

What would it take for Americans to once again declare independence from an oppressive government?

For the colonists, it was excessive taxation without representation. It was also that English soldiers were quartered in their homes, as an occupying army. The English attempted to disarm them and shot into a crowd killing five in the lead up to the American Revolution.

Well, entire volumes could be written about the abuses Americans suffer at the hands of the government today.

But one especially egregious violation of rights is the state kidnapping children without due process.

No, I am not talking about immigrant children at the border.

(That is another whole topic, though I will weigh in briefly to say every human being who sets foot on American soil should have the right to due process and the rights of the accused.)

I am talking about Child Protective Services.

Has there ever been a more justifiable cause for revolution, than the state kidnapping your children?

Growing Abuse of Parents Rights

When a serious crime is committed against a child by his or her parents, of course it is right to remove that parents access to the child. The way society is currently organized, that responsibility falls to the government.

But in the United States, you are innocent until proven guilty. If you have committed a crime, you are afforded due process.

If the crime is serious enough, yes, you can be held in prison pending trial. Obviously, this removes your access to the victim. But accused criminals still have rights. Due process means going through various channels to make sure the government has a legitimate reason to search your home, arrest you, charge you, and sentence you if you are convicted.

Yet a father was told by Child Protective Services in Mississippi that they did not need a warrant to search his home.

His nightmare began when a Mississippi social worker, Kyra Reed (who also goes by Kyra Carson), knocked on his door demanding entrance without a warrant. Chambers was never told what the charges were. She didnt tell me what I was accused of and demanded to interview my 6-year-old daughter without my presence, Chambers told PJM. I told her that was unacceptable, but she was more than welcome to talk to her with me there without me interfering. She seemed perturbed, but accepted that. She then told me she wanted to...

The End of Bananas? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Experts say a special breed found in Madagascar could hold the key to keeping them alive.

But there are only five known trees in existence.

Scientists are racing to develop new banana varieties strong enough to survive Panama disease, which is a major threat to banana crops around the world.

Because bananas are clones, the disease is able to spread very quickly from one to another.

It is currently wreaking havoc with crops in Asia but could wipe out the worlds supply if it spreads to America.

Richard Allen, senior conservation assessor at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, told the BBC: It doesnt have Panama disease in it, so perhaps it has genetic traits against the disease.

No, The Founding Fathers Weren't "Ordinary Men," Not In The Way Scott Walker Means It "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Trump's knowledge of American history is as thorough as his knowledge of everything other than grifting. That's why so many morons love him so much; they see themselves in him. I guess there's nothing we can do about that. Even when Max Boot speculated in his Post column yesterday that "If Trump announced he were going to spit-roast immigrant kids and eat them on national TV (apologies to Jonathan Swift), most Republicans probably would approve of that too," he was right on target. Anyone-- including Boot-- who thinks there is anything Robert Mueller could find that will that will shatter his hold on the affections of his moron followers is just whistling Dixie. "Imagine," wrote Boot, "what would happen if special counsel Robert S. Mueller III finds clear evidence of criminality or if Trumps trade wars tank the economy... if it does, it might-- just might-- shake the 88 percent GOP support that Trump currently enjoys. That, in turn, could open the way for a credible primary challenge... To use one of Boot's own metaphor sources, Wrong 'Em Boyo.



Remember when the idiot talked about what a great future he saw for Frederick Douglass? That's his knowledge of history. I don't want to say that the whole party don't know much about history... but... scholar's they don't tend to be these days. Another genius, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, getting his voters ready for some unconstitutional activities, has been a big proponent of spreading the idea that the founding fathers were "ordinary people."

Confederacy Of Congressional Traitors In Moscow For July 4th; R Now Means Russian Rather Than Republican It Appears: Shelby, Thune, Kennedy, Moran, Hoeven, Granger, Johnson, Daines Are Their Names "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

What to say? A Confederacy of Russian Senators and one Republican Congresswoman in Moscow on July 4th, led by R. Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama? Obviously they are not US members of Congress. Does the R by their name stand for Russian, rather than Republican, now?

Abe Lincoln is past worn out spinning in his grave over todays so-called Republican party. Do they think that US national day is now June 12th, as in their Russian motherland? This was the first Congressional delegation to visit Russia since Russia took over Crimea in 2014. How many died during WWII to protect against such invasions by both Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia?

So many dead during the American Revolution, War of 1812 and US Civil War for a bunch of cheap prostitutes to sell the country out!

Here are the eight:
R. Sen Richard Shelby of Alabama
R. Sen. John Thune of South Dakota,
R. Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana
R. Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas
R. Sen. John Hoeven of North Dakota,
R. Rep. Kay Granger of Texas,
R. Sen. Steve Daines of Montana and
R. Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

The delegation avoided publicity, with none of the eight lawmakers tweeting from Russia about their trip. Several, such as Sen. John Thune of South Dakota and Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana, posted generic Independence Day greetings from Moscow. https://www.npr.org/2018/07/05/626079169/gop-lawmakers-hope-russia-visit-sets-stage-for-new-day-ahead-of-trump-putin-summ

Steve Daines alleges that he returned to the US for the 4th. True or false he sold out American values of freedom and independence by kowtowing to Russia.

Candlelight March Set for Anniversary of Seth Richs Death: Were Still Searching for the Truth "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Americans will hold a vigil in Washington, D.C., on July 10 to mark the two-year anniversary of the murder of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee voter-expansion data director whom some suspect handed over thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks during the 2016 election.

The anniversary event will begin with a press conference hosted by the Washington-based attorney and lobbyist  Jack Burkman alongside popular internet podcaster and owner of America First Media Group, Matt Couch, both of whom, with teams of private investigators have been on the hunt for slain DNC staffer, Seth Richs killer.

Reaffirming the search for Richs killer, Burkman will reveal new findings from The Profiling Investigate Project, a private investigative team created for the Seth Rich case, and will reveal two previously unknown sources who may be key to unlocking the mystery, according to a press release obtained by the Gateway Pundit.

Following the press conference, the day will end with a candlelight march to the spot where Rich was killed.

Two years ago, a familys world was turned upside down while police wrote it off as a cold case, Burkman said in press release. We want to show hope isnt lost and pay our respects to a beloved fellow Washingtonian who was taken much too soon.

Rich, 27, was a DNC voter expansion data director for two years and had accepted a position with Hillary Clintons campaign. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., on July 10, 2016, near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described it as a botched robbery.

Private investigators have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of bombshell emails that rocked the Democratic National Committee in the summer of 2016 just ahead of its convention and the 2016 election. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton, led to the resignation of DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. On July 22, just 12 days after Richs death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

The Democrat Socialists of America support no borders, no profit, no prisons and no cash bail.

This week DNC Chairman Tom Perez claimed that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist running for Congress, is the future of our party.

On Friday night leading American Socialist Cornel West joined Tucker Carlson to explain this popular movement on the left.

Predictable: CNN Hack Says Trump Is Racist for Calling Stupid Maxine Waters Low IQ, in the 60s "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

You knew this was coming.
Last night in Great Falls, Montana President Trump went after Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters.

President Trump hit radical Democrat Maxine Waters particularly hard.

President Trump: I said it the other day, Yes she is a low IQ person. Maxine Waters, I said it the other day. I mean honestly, shes somewhere in the mid-60s.

Of course, the liberal media could not let this pass without accusing Trump of racism.

Apparently, if you accuse a loud stupid woman of having a low IQ, in the mid-60s, thats racist.
Via Mediaite:

On Friday, CNNs Jeffrey Toobin called out President Donald Trump for calling Rep. Maxine Waters a low IQ individual.

Speaking of his comments on Friday, Toobin said of Trumps remarks, How racist is that?

How about this Maxine Waters stuff over and over again? Low IQ. How racist is that? Toobin said, pointing out that Trumps rally speech was hardly the first time POTUS lashed out at Waters or claimed she had a low IQ.

Newsflash to the liberal media: Your Auntie Maxine is an idiot. Deal with it. Accept it.
Its not racist to speak the obvious.

DOJ, FBI Still Not in Full Compliance With Document Request Fail to Meet Deadline Set by House Resolution "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The DOJ and FBI once again failed to meet a deadline set by Congress to turn over pertinent classified documents on the Trump-Russia probe conducted by the bureau.

Trey Gowdy on Oversight, Devin Nunes on Intelligence and Bob Goodlatte on Judiciary, all requested documents under one subpoena last August and the FBI is still not in compliance.

Sources told Fox News Catherine Herridge that House staffers who have reviewed the documents say the DOJ and FBI still have not provided records of the bureaus activities before the Trump-Russia investigation during the 2016 election officially opened on July 31st.

Fox News reported:

The House Judiciary Committee has been in contact daily with the Justice Department to ensure they produce all the documents subpoenaed by the committee earlier this year, a Republican House Judiciary Committee aide said. The Justice Department has produced more documents over the past weeks and has requested more time to produce additional documents. This request seems to be reasonable, and we expect the fepartment to comply with the terms of the subpoena.

An Intelligence Committee spokesperson told Fox News, The DOJ gave the committee some, but not all, of the outstanding documents, so they are not in compliance.

A Justice Department official emphasized last weekend that the DOJ and FBI had told the both chambers intelligence committees that records, previously limited to congressional leadership known as Gang of Eight, were now available to lawmakers and cleared staff. The records were widely reported to include documents about the FBIs alleged use of confidential sources to contact Trump campaign aides during the 2016 campaign.

In April, a subpoena was issued for a key set of records, focused on FBI activities before the bureaus Russia case officially opened.

What put this in motion? And of course, was what put this into motion, was something that is politically motivated, or was it based on legit law enforcement evidence? said Thomas Dupree, former deputy assistant attorney general under President George W. Bush. Based on hearing and the back-and-forth we have seen over the last few months, we are in an extremely unusual, and in my view disturbing, situation, where the has been a complete breakdown and a fracture of trust.

We All Want Mueller To Prove Trump Is A Criminal Fast-- But More Important, We All Want Mueller To Prove Trump Is A Criminal Indisputably "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


I've been binge-watching Billions and I'm finishing up Season 3. There's is certainly some inspiration there from the activities of Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York is his office's battle against Steve Cohen (S.A.C. Capital Advisors) and John Gutfreund (Salomon Brothers). I've learned a lot about the workings of the U.S. Attorney's office-- at least the storied South and Eastern districts' U.S. Attorney's offices. So I was especially interested in a report by Chris Strohm yesterday that Mueller has tapped more prosecutors to help with the growing Trumpanzee probe.

"Growing," huh? That should flip Trump out by itself. "As Mueller pursues his probe," wrote Strohm, "hes making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents-- a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said." If you're a Billions fan, think Bryan Connerty, Chief of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force for the Southern District. Mueller has 17 federal prosecutors now. Team Trumpanzee-- including, incongruously, Trey Gowdy, who led the Benghazi "investigation" (4 years, no indictments)-- is screaming that the investigation is going on too long and costing too much. This while Trumpists file more and more court challenges-- some frivolous-- meant to slow down and bog down the investigation.
Investigators in New York; Alexandria, Virginia; Pittsburgh and elsewhere have been tapped to supplement the work of Muellers team, the officials said. Mueller has already handed off one major investigation-- into Trumps personal lawyer, Michael Cohen-- to the Southern District of New York.

Secretary of State Pompeo Brings Kim Jong Un Elton John Rocket Man CD Signed by Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea for nuclear talks with Kim Jong Un.

Pompeo reportedly brought Kim Jong Un an Elton John Rocket Man CD signed by President Trump.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his team finished talks with the North Koreans this evening.

The Korea Times reported:

U.S. President Donald Trump has sent through his envoy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the 1972 Elton John song, Rocket Man, to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, reports said Friday.

Trump asked Kim during their June 12 summit in Singapore if he knew of Johns song and Kim said no, Chosun Ilbo newspaper said, quoting unnamed sources in Washington.

Trump derided Kim as little rocket man in his tweets after North Korea launched a series of missiles last year at the height of tension between the two countries. Kim then called Trump a dotard.

Paul Manafort Spends 23 Hours a Day in Solitary Confinement Because of Muellers Thuggery "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On June 15th, a Federal judge jailed Trumps former campaign chair Paul Manafort ahead of his trial, citing recently filed obstruction charges.

Because of Muellers thuggish tactics, Paul Manafort, 69, will spend 23 hours a day in solitary confinement in a Virginia jail until his July 25th trial, even though he has not been convicted of a crime nor is he a danger to society.

One of Manaforts lawyers, John Dowd, previously told Fox News he is in solitary for his safety, The warden is concerned that someone would violently attack Paul just for street cred.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton and Obamas corrupt FBI and DOJ thugs roam freely.

Where is the justice?

Law and Crime reported:

Paul Manafort has been behind bars ever since a federal judge in Washington, D.C. revoked his pre-trial release for violating his bail conditions as he faces money laundering charges. According to a new court filing that his attorney submitted to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the former Trump campaign manager isnt just behind bars, hes in solitary confinement.

He is locked in his cell for at least 23 hours per day (excluding visits from his attorneys), at a facility approximately two hours from his legal team, Manaforts attorney Frank P. Cihlar wrote. This confirms a previous claim from President Donald Trumps former attorney John Dowd, who said in June that Manafort was in solitary.

WINNING AGAIN: Obama Saw WORST PAY GAINS Since Great Depression Trump Sees GREATEST PAY GAINS Since Great Depression "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Leadership and Success

During the Obama years wage growth for American workers was at its worst level since the Great Depression.

Investors reported:

Since the 2008-2009 recession, wage growth for workers has been stuck at 2.5% or lower compared to a 3%-plus growth rate for wages before the financial crisis.

Its not surprising this should be so: The economy failed to grow by more than 3% in any year during the Obama era, despite massive stimulus of nearly a trillion dollars and record-low zero-percent interest rates engineered by a desperate Fed.

The average annualized growth of the Obama years was actually less than 2%, the worst performance since the Great Depression.

But that has all changed with President Donald Trump.

President Trump has seen the greatest pay gains since the Great Depression.

CNBC reported:

Workers looking for fatter paychecks had their best year in 2017 since before the financial crisis, according to a government report Wednesday.

The Employment Cost Index, a measure of salary and benefit costs, registered a 2.6 percent gain for the full year, tied for the best since 2007, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported.

President Donald Trumps first full year in office saw gains that easily outdistanced any year for his predecessor, Barack Obama, whose best showing was the 2.2 percent increases in 2016 and 2014. Six of Obamas eight years in office saw gains of 2 percent or less.

NYCs Corrupt Mayor De Blasio Used $3 Million Counterterrorism Plane to Fly Home From Canadian Vacation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Democrat Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio

Bill de Blasio, the Communist Democrat Mayor of New York City, used a $3 million counterterrorism plane to fly home from his Canadian vacation Thursday.

The New York Post reported:

The NYPD used a $3 million counterterrorism plane to shuttle Mayor Bill de Blasio back and forth from his Canada vacation to the Big Apple for an event Thursday, The Post has learned.

Hizzoner, who is in Quebec on a weeklong respite, briefly flew back to the Bronx for a memorial for slain Detective Miosotis Familia.

NYPD is transporting him in their plane, de Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips told The Post.

Their plane is a Cessna 208 Caravan that cost roughly $3 million and was picked up by the department in 2017, sources said.

The high-tech aircraft is outfitted with special sensors that can detect at a distance radioactive material used to make dirty bombs.

Police sources questioned the use of a special plane for mayoral transportation.

It is very unusual to go on an international flight to go pick up the mayor, one source said.

I think its excessive, because that wasnt what that plane was designed to do. Its designed for counterterrorism measures. To go to Canada to get the mayor? Its excessive.

De Blasio spox, Eric Phillips insisted this is the first time the NY Mayor used the airplane.

It is also unclear who decided de Blasio could use the airplane or how much it cost taxpayers. Why did he use this plane when a commercial flight costs only about $300.

Bill De Blasio is your typical elitist, corrupt Democrat politician who wastes taxpayer money.

Will he be forced out like Pruitt was? Of course not, De Blasio is a Democrat.

Next week the British people have to cope with him in person... and they're getting ready. Dominique Mosbergen reported yesterday how Magid Magid, lord mayor of Sheffield, who noted that Trump is "a spurting cesspit of hate," banned him from Sheffield, the 6th biggest city in the U.K., bigger than Seattle, DC and Boston, smaller than Indianapolis.

A fun night of fireworks was ruined for a Boynton Beach man. Jeff Good says he was attacked for having a President Trump flag in his yard.

Good said he was watching fireworks in his driveway when someone drove in front of his house and started yelling at him about President Trump.

He was saying vile things about our president, said Good.

The driver of the car then told Good he had to remove his flag. When Good told him no, he said the driver punched him in the face.

Good said he instinctively tried to punch the man back, but the man drove off with Goods arm stuck in the car, and Good was then dragged for about 30 feet.

Antifa Website Publishes Home Address of Pittsburgh Judge, Masked Leftists Invade His Suburban Neighborhood Scaring Children "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

While most Americans celebrated the Fourth of July, Antifa terrorists published the home address of a Pittsburgh judge and masked militants invaded his suburban neighborhood refusing to leave even after police explained that they were frightening the local children.

The militant leftists have been targeting Judge Jeffrey Manning because they feel he gave a light bail to a Pittsburgh police officer who shot and killed a black teenager on June 19. The officer has been charged with criminal homicide and was released on a $250,000 unsecured bond.

The home address of Judge Manning was published on the popular Antifa website Its Going Down.

According to an anonymous confession about the harassment published to the same website, approximately 35 people met in his cul-de-sac neighborhood on Independence Day feeling empowered and ready to storm this ding dongs neighborhood. Folks silently marched single file in lines of two, some masked, some not; everyone with fists raised.

The pigs showed up late to the party and everyone was pretty much on to the next thing by the time several squad cars arrived. Everyone got out just fine. The second part of the days actions was to shut down the intersection at Connor and Gilkeson Road, a pretty big intersection for the amount of people who came out. This was right in front of a mall and a main route to various suburbanite July 4th parties, so that was tight. The small group shut shit down successfully with the help of a down ass semi driver who saw what was up and parked his rig in front of the exit route many cars were attempting to take. The cops were frazzled, a lot of fancy cars got fucked up hopping the median, and the intersection was held successfully for a good chunk of time in the 95 degree heat and direct sun, the confession continued.

One woman was reportedly so frazzled that she attempted to drive through the group of protesters. Police even pleaded with the protesters by explaining that they were scaring children that were stuck in the cars around them.

John Solomon: Strzok-Page Texts Reveal FBI Scrambled to Accelerate Investigation Into Trump Camp Shortly Before Election Hurry the F Up "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

New Strzok-Page messages reveal the FBIs pressure to hurry up and investigate the Trump campaign. Many could argue their political bias did indeed have an impact on the Trump-Russia collusion investigation.

Investigative journalist, John Solomon reported on Friday new docs the FBI gave to the Inspector General, and which were previously withheld from the public, show internal FBI communications that are very troubling and damning.

We already know the FBI lovebirds, Strzok and Page, sent many profane text messages to each other, disparaging Trump.

In one very damning text message, Peter Strzok said Well stop Trump from becoming President.

New internal communications show the FBI scrambling in the Fall of 2016 to accelerate the Trump-Russia probe, shortly before and after Trump won the election.

Via John Solomon of The Hill:

Memos the FBI is now producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as damning or troubling evidence.

They show Strzok and his counterintelligence team rushing in the fall of 2016 to find derogatory information from informants or a pretext to accelerate the probe and get a surveillance warrant on figures tied to the future president.

One of those figures was Carter Page, an academic and an energy consultant from New York; he was briefly a volunteer foreign policy adviser for the GOP nominees campaign and visited Moscow the summer before the election.
