    Jamie Dimon said he could beat President Donald Trump in an election. Then he walked it back

    Trump use to say he could improve the economy, better than Obama...

    Then he proved it...with over 50% of the politicians fighting him..

    Lot of people with their hand out, but very few with their hands down,

    Amazing what these idiots could do if the worked together, instead of trying to get rich on the back of the taxpayers,

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Thursday threw a cryptic curveball at Brett Kavanaugh, insinuating the Supreme Court nominee could be guilty of a crime even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation.

    Word on the street is he seen a girl in high school and tried to have sex with her, she now wants $160,000.00 and the claim will go away,

    Feinstines wants the FBI to investigate this claim that happened 42 years ago.

    Trump was also there, she claims,.and Hillary backed her up..

    Washington (CNN)Senate Democrats have referred information concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the FBI, they said Thursday, and called for the Judiciary Committee to delay a vote.

    "I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, said in a statement. "That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision," she said.
    "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities," she added.

    Committee vote delayed for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to next week

    Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin said the referral went to the FBI but also did not say what the informatiOn.

    This sounds like a broken record..

    CNN would not report False News..

    LEAKED VIDEO: Google Leadership’s Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election
    53941

    12 Sep 201841,389
    A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant’s leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe.

    The video is a full recording of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 election (these weekly meetings are known inside the company as “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” meetings). Sent to Breitbart News by an anonymous source, it features co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat, and CEO Sundar Pichai. It can be watched in full above. It can and should be watched in full above in order to get the full context of the meeting and the statements made.

    It was reported earlier this week that Google tried to boost turnout among the Latino population to help Hillary Clinton, only to be dismayed as the usually solid Democratic voting bloc switched to the GOP in record numbers. This video shows a similar level of dismay among Google’s most high-profile figures.

    These individuals, who preside over a company with unrivaled influence over the flow of information, can be seen disparaging the motivations of Trump voters and plotting ways to use their vast resources to thwart the Trump agenda.

    Co-founder Sergey Brin can be heard comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. Brin argues that like other extremists, Trump voters were motivated by “boredom,” which he says in the past led to fascism and communism.

    The Google co-founder then asks his company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.”

    VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker argues that supporters of populist causes like the Trump campaign are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”

    Later, Walker says that Google should fight to ensure the populist movement – not just in the U.S. but around the world – is merely a “blip” and a “hiccup” in a historical arc that “bends toward progress.”

    CEO Sundar Pichai states that the company will develop machine learning and A.I. to combat what an employee described as “misinformation” shared by “low-information voters.”

    Key moments from the video can be found at the following timestamps:

    • (00:00:00 – 00:01:12) Google co-founder Sergey Brin states that the weekly meeting is “probably not the most joyous we’ve had” and that “most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad.”
    • (00:00:24) Brin contrasts the disappointment of Trump’s election with his excitement at the legalization of cannabis in California, triggering laughs and applause from the audience of Google employees.
    • (00:01:12) Returning to seriousness, Brin says he is “deeply offen[ded]” by the election of Trump, and that the election “conflicts with many of [Google’s] values.”
    • (00:09:10) Trying to explain the motivations of Trump supporters, Senior VP for Global Affairs, Kent Walker concludes: “fear, not just in the United States, but around the world is fueling concerns, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”
    • (00:09:35) Walker goes on to describe the Trump phenomenon as a sign of “tribalism that’s self-destructive [in] the long-term.”
    • (00:09:55) Striking an optimistic tone, Walker assures Google employees that despite the election, “history is on our side” and that the “moral arc of history bends towards progress.”
    • (00:10:45) Walker approvingly quotes former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s comparison between “the world of the wall” with its “isolation and defensiveness” and the “world of the square, the piazza, the marketplace, where people come together into a community and enrich each other’s lives.”
    • (00:13:10) CFO Ruth Porat appears to break down in tears when discussing the election result.
    • (00:15:20) Porat promises that Google will “use the great strength and resources and reach we have to continue to advance really important values.”
    • (00:16:50) Stating “we all need a hug,” she then instructs the audience of Google employees to hug the person closest to them.
    • (00:20:24) Eileen Naughton, VP of People Operations, promises that Google’s policy team in DC is “all over” the immigration issue and that the company will “keep a close watch on it.”
    • (00:21:26) Naughton jokes about Google employees asking, ‘Can I move to Canada?’ after the election. She goes on to seriously discuss the options available to Google employees who wish to leave the country.
    • (00:23:12) Naughton does acknowledge “diversity of opinion and political persuasion” and notes that she has heard from conservative Google employees who say they “haven’t felt entirely comfortable revealing who [they] are.” and urged “tolerance.” (Several months later, the company would fire James Damore allegedly for disagreeing with progressive narratives.)
    • (00:27:00) Responding to a question about “filter bubbles,” Sundar Pichai promises to work towards “correcting” Google’s role in them
    • (00:27:30) Sergey Brin praises an audience member’s suggestion of increasing matched Google employee donations to progressive groups.
    • (00:34:40) Brin compares Trump voters to “extremists,” arguing for a correlation between the economic background of Trump supporters and the kinds of voters who back extremist movements. Brin says that “voting is not a rational act” and that not all of Trump’s support can be attributed to “income disparity.” He suggests that Trump voters might have been motivated by boredom rather than legitimate concerns.
    • (00:49:10) An employee asks if Google is willing to “invest in grassroots, hyper-local efforts to bring tools and services and understanding of Google products and knowledge” so that people can “make informed decisions that are best for themselves.” Pichai’s response: Google will ensure its “educational products” reach “segments of the population [they] are not [currently] fully reaching.”
    • (00:54:33) An employee asks what Google is going to do about “misinformation” and “fake news” shared by “low-information voters.” Pichai responds by stating that “investments in machine learning and AI” are a “big opportunity” to fix the problem.
    • (00:56:12) Responding to an audience member, Walker says Google must ensure the rise of populism doesn’t turn into “a world war or something catastrophic … and instead is a blip, a hiccup.”
    • (00:58:22) Brin compares Trump voters to supporters of fascism and communism, linking the former movement to “boredom,” which Brin previously linked to Trump voters. “It sort of sneaks up sometimes, really bad things” says Brin.
    • (01:01:15) A Google employee states: “speaking to white men, there’s an opportunity for you right now to understand your privilege” and urges employees to “go through the bias-busting training, read about privilege, read about the real history of oppression in our country.” He urges employees to “discuss the issues you are passionate about during Thanksgiving dinner and don’t back down and laugh it off when you hear the voice of oppression speak through metaphors.” Every executive on stage – the CEO, CFO, two VPs and the two Co-founders – applaud the employee.
    • (01:01:57) An audience member asks if the executives see “anything positive from this election result.” The audience of Google employees, and the executives on stage, burst into laughter. “Boy, that’s a really tough one right now” says Brin.
    Update — After Breitbart News published this article, a Google spokesperson replied to a request for comment with the following statement:

    “At a regularly scheduled all hands meeting, some Google employees and executives expressed their own personal views in the aftermath of a long and divisive election season. For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings. Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products. To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint.”

    Scammer......

    [​IMG]


    Socialists want everybody to get everything — as long as they get theirs first.

    And socialists looooove money. Take Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont Independent who touts himself as a socialist. He’s got three houses, including a shorefront house on Lake Champlain.

    Same goes for the hot new socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s everywhere now as she runs for a New York seat in the U.S. House. And with that comes money — and bling.

    In a photo shoot for Interview magazine, Ocasio-Cortez was pictured wearing a $3,500 outfit as she posed with construction workers. She was decked out in a Gabriela Hearst blazer ($1,990), Gabriela Hearst pants ($890), and some Monolo Blahnik shoes ($625).

    [​IMG]

    The story hit the pages of Reddit, prompting plenty of responses.

    “I’ve never met a socialist who had the faintest idea of redistributing a penny of their own money. They’re all about taking all the time,” said one Redittor.

    “As a barmaid she took all $500 of the tips after a holiday night at the bar, stiffing the waitresses with only $50,” said another. “She is only a socialist if she can take as much as she wants and leave the scraps for everyone else.”

    Said yet another: “No, she’s a real socialist. This is what socialism is. You tell the people that they deserve more, and those stinky ‘rich’ people aren’t paying their fair share. Then you join the ranks of the elite, bu[y] expensive clothes, lake houses, Audis, etc., and you’re set. This is socialism. This is literally what it is.”

    Ocasio-Cortez has painted herself as growing up rough in the Bronx, while in reality she grew up mostly in wealthy Westchester County, the Daily Mail reported.

    University Of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, (UNSW) researcher in international heritage law weighs in on monument-removal controversy

    Posted Wednesday, 29th August 2018

    [​IMG]


    A UNSW researcher in international heritage law has weighed into the monument-removal controversy, suggesting that monuments of James Cook and confederate statues in the US not be removed.

    The statues were the centre of debate in Australia and the US in August last year, after a deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia erupted around the city’s plans to take down a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

    Shortly after a statue of Cook in Sydney’s Hyde Park was spray-painted with the words “change the date” and “no pride in genocide” and a monument to the fifth governor of NSW, Lachlan Macquarie, and a statue of Queen Victoria was also targeted.

    Associate Professor Lucas Lixinski said the confederate monuments should remain but should also “add plaques that tell a different arc or more nuanced history of what happened."

    “The advantages are that you don’t erase history… and you accommodate the sentiment of multiple sides of the population as opposed to yielding to the feelings of one segment of the population, however adversely affected,” he said.

    “They still get to have their story told, but told in a more proactive way as opposed to having just been told by the act of removal.” He said the same stance could be applied to any offending monuments in Australia.

    “Much like confederate general monuments in the US, James Cook statues in Australia cause offence to a minority group in Australia, Indigenous Australians, by saying that Australian history started with the arrival of James Cook and that he should be praised and celebrated,” he said.

    “In doing so, we ignore the centuries of oppression and mistreatment of Indigenous people that were brought by the arrival of James Cook.”

    “The suggestion would be not to remove the monuments and instead just have a plaque that says, for instance, ‘This is James Cook, the first British individual to arrive in Australia. His arrival began the process of colonisation and it has disrupted the ways of life of Indigenous peoples’.”

    The Associate Professor considered three frameworks – International Cultural Heritage Law, International Human Rights Law and Transitional Justice – in his consideration of the future of the 1500 confederate monuments in the US in the Wisconsin International Law Journal in June.

    “Most cultural heritage law and human rights law are very yes or no, it’s an all or nothing response, so it doesn’t leave a lot of room for compromising, and inevitably they end up recasting the same conflict as opposed to doing something that actually allows the conversation to flow in equal terms,” he said.

    “So I discarded them on those grounds and moved onto transitional justice, which is a framework that has been used across a range of countries to think about how to engage with a difficult past and heal the society and move on.”

    The Associate Professor said it was wrong to leave the statues as they were or remove the statues.

    “What’s wrong with removing them is that they still speak to history, so to erase history is almost to forget about the lessons that history can tell us about the past, so we don’t make the same mistakes in the future,” he said.

    “So erasing that history is just as bad as leaving it as is, in my opinion.”

    Associate Professor Lucas Lixinski’s book Legalized Identities: Cultural Heritage Law and the Shaping of Transitional Justice is under contract for publication with Cambridge University Press.

    Manafort Indictment Also Implicates Tony Podesta, The Clinton-Connected Superlobbyist

    Two lobbying firms, including one owned by Democratic superlobbyist Tony Podesta, knowingly worked with Paul Manafort at the direction of the Ukrainian government, according to an indictment released Friday by the special counsel’s office.

    The indictment, which was released ahead of an expected plea deal for Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, says that as a part of his “lobbying scheme,” Manafort solicited two lobbying firms in February 2012 to lobby on behalf of then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

    “Various employees of Companies A and B understood that they were receiving direction from MANAFORT and President Yanukovych, not the Centre, which was not even operational when Companies A and B began lobbying for Ukraine,” reads the indictment. The Centre is a reference to the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, a Brussels-based non-profit that the government says was used to support Yanukovych.

    Company A has been identified as Mercury Public Affairs, a lobbying shop operated by former Minnesota Republican Rep. Vin Weber. Company B has been identified as Podesta Group, the firm that Tony Podesta founded with his brother, John, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    Manafort pleaded guilty Friday to conspiracy against the United States and obstruction of justice. He was convicted in federal court in Virginia on Aug. 21 on bank fraud, tax fraud and money laundering charges. He was scheduled to face trial in Washington, D.C., on charges directly related to his consulting work for Yanukovych.

    Nobody from Podesta Group or Mercury Public Affairs has faced charges in the case, though the latest indictment suggests that the lobbying firms skirted federal law by failing to register as foreign agents with the Department of Justice (DOJ).

    According to the indictment, Manafort knowingly avoided registering with the DOJ and lied to the government about his work for Yanukovych, who was forced to leave office in 2014.

    The indictment lays out evidence that Manafort, his business partner Rick Gates, and employees at Mercury Public Affairs and the Podesta Group were aware they were working for Yanukovych.

    The head of Company B, believed to be Podesta, told his employees “to think the President of Ukraine ‘is the client.’”

    The indictment also cites evidence that an employee of the Podesta Group realized the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine was being used as cover for Yanukovych.

    “An employee of Company B described the Centre as a fig leaf, and the Centre’s written certification that it was not related to the Party of Regions as ‘a fig leaf on a fig leaf,’ referring to the Centre in an email as the ‘European hot dog stand for a Modern Ukraine,’” the indictment reads.

    “Company B wrote in an email to its team about a ‘potential representation for the Ukraine,’ having been contacted ‘at the suggestion of Paul Manafort who has been working on the current PM elections.’”

    The indictment also says Manafort, Gates, and “employees of both Companies A and B referred to the client in ways that made clear they knew it was Ukraine, for instance noting that the ‘client’ had an Embassy in Washington D.C.”

    Working at Manafort’s direction, Mercury and Podesta Group lobbied dozens of members of Congress, their staffers, and White House and Department of State officials regarding a host of issues related to Ukraine, including the validity of its elections.

    Manafort frequently briefed Yanukovych on Mercury and Podesta’s lobbying activities. He also tasked the companies to prepare reports that he could provide to Yanukovych.

    The Peter Strzok-Lisa Page text messages: They’re the gift that keeps on giving.

    According to Fox News, a newly uncovered text message chain seems to confirm that FBI lawyer Lisa Page — one of the two lovebirds whose texts have cast doubt on the objectivity of the Department of Justice’s investigations surrounding the 2016 election — claims that she interned for one of the Clintons.

    “Get inspired and depressing reading that article about how Obama approached the mail room,” Page said in a text to Strzok on Jan. 19, 2017 — the last full day of the Obama administration.

    “Needless to say, it was very different when I interned there under Clinton.”

    The article she was discussing was a New York Times piece that described the kind of mail the outgoing president would receive.

    “At the beginning of his first term, President (Barack) Obama said he wanted to read his mail. He said he would like to see 10 letters a day. After that, the 10LADs, as they came to be called, were put in a purple folder and added to the back of the briefing book he took with him to the residence on the second floor of the White House each night,” the article, titled “To Obama With Love, and Hate, and Desperation,” read.

    “Choosing which letters made it to the president started here in the Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House, in the ‘hard-mail room,’ which had the tired, unkempt look of a college study hall during finals — paper everywhere, files stacked along walls, bundles under tables, boxes propping up computer monitors dotted with Post-its, cables hanging.”

    The text exchange continued with Strzok asking, “How was it different?”

    “Will have to talk in person,” Page responded. “It’s hard to describe. More of a rote have to respond to the mail exercise.”

    Page is 39 and graduated American University in 2000. It’s unclear which Clinton she would have interned under; President Bill Clinton was leaving office as she was graduating and Hillary Clinton was taking her role as the junior senator from New York in 2001.

    Page declined to comment on the latest text.

    While the text messages that received the most attention this week involved ones which plotted leaks to the press, the Clinton message — assuming it’s accurate and Page is telling the truth — would also present a conflict of interest.

    Both Page and Strzok were involved in the FBI’s Midyear Exam investigation — the codename for the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified email on a private server during her time at the State Department.

    That wasn’t all, though.

    “Strzok and Page both served on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election. Page served on the special counsel’s team on a short detail, returning back to the FBI’s Office of General Counsel in July 2017,” Fox News reported.

    “Page, during her time at the FBI, was a deputy of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was long criticized by Trump and congressional Republicans for his ties to the Democratic Party. McCabe’s wife received donations during a failed 2015 Virginia Senate run from a group tied to a Clinton ally, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe — all while the Clinton email probe was underway.”

    So, is this a conflict of interest? More evidence of just how much of a morass the swamp really is? Overthinking a text message? Or none of the above?

    Well, the simple answer is that we don’t know, inasmuch as Strzok, Page and everyone else around them have tried to denude these text messages of all context. Strzok’s appearance before Congress certainly didn’t elucidate much, although it may have inspired plenty of GIFs.

    However, if this is true, Page was compromised from the beginning — and that’s a serious problem for anyone trying to push this as mere Jim Garrison-esque conspiracy theorizing. Time for answers, folks.

    another leftie............:rolleyes:

    unfortunately teaching the next generation.

    hopefully the kids learn from his idiotic actions.


    A sociology professor at the College of Southern Nevada shot himself… apparently, to protest President Trump.

    It’s unclear exactly what Professor Mark Bird, 69, thought his “protest” would accomplish in American politics.

    Bird, who shot himself with a .22 pistol in the arm in a campus bathroom, did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Bird was later found stumbling outside the bathroom, bleeding profusely, and was brought to the hospital.

    Inside the bathroom, police found a $100 bill taped to the mirror with a note that said, “For the janitor,” along with a .22-caliber pistol and a shell casing.

    Police also wrote in their report that Bird shot himself in protest of President Trump, but did not elaborate further on Bird’s intentions.

    Ironically, Bird is now facing felony charges… because, in Nevada, it’s a crime to carry a firearm on a college campus. Bird has been charges with firing a gun in a gun-free zone, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property.

    An ethics complaint has been delivered to the chairman and co-chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics against Sen. Cory Booker.

    The accusation against the New Jersey Democrat was made by Judicial Watch, and the group announced Wednesday in a news release that it had “hand-delivered a letter” to the leaders of the committee.

    Their complaints against Booker stem from his unsolicited confession that he broke Senate rules while handling documents in the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    Booker openly told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would be breaking their rules, noting that he would accept the consequences of that choice.

    The reasons Booker gave for this choice included his belief that the system was not functioning correctly, and he didn’t see that there was any good reason for the documents to be listed as classified.

    The letter sent by Judicial Watch cited social media posts by Booker, where he openly bragged about breaking the committee rules, both on Twitter and Facebook.

    In his Facebook post, Booker not only admitted to the violations but objected to the rules themselves, saying, “The classification of many documents as ‘Committee Confidential’ is a sham.”

    Booker went on to acknowledge the possible repercussions of his actions:

    “Senator Cornyn of Texas threatened me with expulsion during the hearings. Now he is threatening ethics charges. As I said then, I say it now: Bring it.”

    “But he won’t,” Booker said. “He knows this is a sham process that can’t be defended. In this, he is all bluster, or as they say in his state of Texas: He is all hat and no cattle.”

    Judicial Watch’s letter provided a portion of the Standing Rules of the Senate as the foundation for their belief that Booker’s actions are an ethics violation.

    “By publicly releasing Committee Confidential records, Sen. Booker appears to have violated provisions 5 and/or 6 of Rule 29 of the Standing Rules of the Senate (Rev. Jan. 24, 2013), which stipulate:

    “5. Any Senator, officer or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate, including the business and proceedings of the committees, subcommittees and offices of the Senate shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body; and if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt.

    “6. Whenever, by the request of the Senate or any committee thereof, any documents or papers shall be communicated to the Senate by the President or the head of any department relating to any matter pending in the Senate, the proceedings in regard to which are secret or confidential under the rules, said documents and papers shall be considered as confidential, and shall not be disclosed without leave of the Senate.”

    Booker’s actions regarding the rules and regulations of the Senate prompted Judicial Watch to make this request of the ethics committee:

    “We hereby request that the Senate Ethics Committee conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Sen. Booker violated Senate Rules by releasing Committee Confidential records through his social media accounts.”
