Ex-FBI lawyer to plead guilty in first criminal case arising from review

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith will plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham's review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.  Clinesmith is being charged in federal court in Washington and is expected to plead guilty to one count of making a false statement, said his attorney Justin Shur.

The development Friday comes amid much speculation, and even a tip-off by Barr, who said on Fox News’ “Hannity” that there would be a “development” in the investigation, teasing that it wouldn’t be “earth-shattering,” but would be “an indication that things are moving along at the proper pace as dictated by the facts in this investigation.”  “There are two different things going on,” Barr said. “I said the American people need to know what actually happened, we need to get the story of what happened in 2016 and ’17 out. That will be done.”

Barr also said that “if people crossed the line, if people involved in that activity violated criminal law, they will be charged.”

GOP senator calls on China to repay $1.6T of century-old debt

The bonds, which are backed by gold, were issued as long ago as 1912

Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., introduced a resolution Thursday calling on China to repay U.S. bondholders more than $1.6 trillion of sovereign debt, including interest, that pre-dates the country's Communist government.

"We are holding China accountable for their debt and for unleashing the coronavirus on the world.  We demand China pay back the $1.6 trillion it owes to American families."

Under international law, successor governments are responsible for the debts of their predecessors.  British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1987 ordered Beijing to pay Brits for their holdings or lose access to British capital markets, enticing then-Chinese President Li Xiannian’s government to reach a settlement of 23.5 million British pounds.

By paying some bondholders and not others, Beijing is technically in selective default, according to the ratings of bond-risk firms Moody’s, Standard & Poors and Fitch, and cannot access the international debt market until it pays the remaining holders.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates reach historic normalization deal brokered by United States

Israel will suspend plans to annex certain areas of the West Bank.

An historic deal was announced Thursday between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, to establish a full normalization of diplomatic relations between the two Middle Eastern nations.  The deal was brokered by President Donald Trump's administration.

"The United Arab Emirates and Israel will immediately expand and accelerate cooperation regarding the treatment of and the development of a vaccine for the coronavirus," the White House said in a statement.  "Working together, these efforts will help save Muslim, Jewish, and Christian lives throughout the region."  The deal will formally be known as the "Abraham Accords."  The UAE follows Egypt and Jordan in becoming one of only three Arab states, and the only Gulf state, to agree to a peace deal with Israel.

The agreement will give more Muslims the opportunity to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City, by allowing flights from Abu Dhabi into Tel Aviv.

Soros sees 'revolutionary moment' in pandemic:  'The range of possibilities is much greater'

Billionaire liberal activist George Soros told an Italian newspaper that he sees the coronavirus epidemic as a “revolutionary” opportunity.

“I would describe it as a revolutionary moment when the range of possibilities is much greater than in normal times,” he said.  “What is inconceivable in normal times becomes not only possible but actually happens.  People are disoriented and scared.”

The ruling was made public just a few days after Tlaib won a tough primary race on Tuesday.

AG Barr:  US facing new form of 'urban guerrilla warfare' driven by left's 'lust for power'

The left views opposition as 'evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia'

Don't you mean Dystopia?

Black Lives Matter is comprised of "Bolsheviks" with a focus on on "some form of socialism, communism.  They're essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic."  The nationwide riots organized by ANTIFA is "a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.  They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves.  That's where they swim.  And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence."

The group's radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party's far-left shift in recent years. "The left has "pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded" America and made a "secular religion" out of seeking "complete political victory." 

Power has become a "secular religion of the left," Barr asserted.  "They want to run people's lives so they can design utopia for all of us...and it's the lust for power.  And they weren't expecting Trump's victory. And it outrages them."

‘We’re Marching the Antifa Commie Scum Out of the Neighborhood.’

A group of citizens in Fort Collins, Colorado rose up to defend their neighborhood against a gang of Antifa thugs.  “We are currently marching Antifa commie bastards out of the neighborhood,” said one man filming the encounter.  “Nobody wants Antifa in the neighborhood. Nobody wants them here so we’re marching them out.”

Some of the local residents had just returned from a “Back the Blue” rally only to find the black-clad Antifa mob prowling their streets.  They were given multiple orders by the residents to leave peacefully.

“Bye, bye commie scum,” another resident said. “You came to the wrong city, boys and girls.”

At some point the incident turned violent — but the impromptu neighborhood watch men were not to be messed with.  “Commie grabbing a knife,” one person could be heard shouting. “Commie grabbing a knife.”  It’s not clear who threw the first punch, but neighborhood watch threw the last.

Converse Colloege tries the Marxist Forced Indoctrination Approach

One professor asserts his conscience against rampant Marxism.

Refusing to be a party to Converse’s indictment of America as systemically racist, Jeff Poelvoorde dared it to do him its worst.  A seasoned academic, and a scholar of politics, Poelvoorde knew that the proposed training would be — could not but be — ideologically inflected.

Krista L. Newkirk, Converse’s president since 2016, asserted that systemic racism haunted Converse’s campus.  A number of initiatives were accordingly announced including mandatory “anti-bias training.”  Only one voice rose publicly against it: that of Political Science Professor Poelvoorde.  The training was polluting the intellectual life of a liberal-arts college Poelvoorde had grown to love.  He couldn’t be an accomplice to its violation, and refused to participate.

Yet in our unheroic age, and in a very unheroic academy, his predicament is worth notice, regret — and alarm.

Bravo the Hero, Professor Poelvoorde!

U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).  This FOIA lawsuit led directly to the disclosure of the Clinton email system in 2015.  Judicial Watch uncovered "talking points" created by the Obama White House and other documents showing that statements about the attack made on the eve of the 2012 elections by then-National Security Advisor Susan Rice were false.

'We are in a culture war,' Republicans need to 'toughen up' – President Trump

That same message against cancel culture was recently put forth by well-known liberal writers and activists who warned that their fellow leftists were going too far.  A letter published in Harper’s Magazine that was signed by notable figures including author J.K. Rowling, activist Gloria Steinem, and linguist Noam Chomsky said that liberals have exhibited "an intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism, and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty."

Blast against the "cancel culture"

"We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and the people who, in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing.  We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history, indoctrinate our children." – President Trump

Facts Are Stubborn Things   by Dr. Hurd

Liars will bring us down with them, and ultimately destroy us.  America had so much to lose, and — as of this moment, at least — we are losing.  The war isn’t over, and there’s no rational reason ever to give up.  But dishonesty is a powerful thing when people are ignorant and indifferent toward real facts.  If we’re to win this war for truth, people will have to become courageous and stop worrying about what others think.  Others are not your friend … the truth IS.

Fear, ignorance, panic, mob hysteria, propaganda, agitators, and hidden-agenda groups are the environment where the Leftists gain the most ground.  Marxist ideologies like Socialism, Fascism, and Communism do not work.  They destroy the incentives for productivity and hence prosperity; poverty is the inevitable result.  They are purely destructive, and their so-called proponents know it.  Being in power and in control as despotic tyrants is the ulterior motive and ultimate goal of Leftists.  Well-meaning but misguided and misled average people, mobs, dupes, stooges, and thugs are their tools.
