CNN attacks GOP Congressman for calling for a federal investigation of Seth Rich’s murder

On May 24, 2017, speaking on CNN, Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) refuted the charge that the Russian government had interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump’s campaign.

Farenthold drew attention instead to Seth Rich, a 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer, as the likely whistleblower who leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks. In the early morning hours of Sunday, July 10, 2016, Rich was shot in the residential Columbia Heights section of Washington, DC. Still alive and conscious when responding police arrived at the crime scene, Rich was declared dead after he was brought to a local hospital.

Farenthold told CNN:

“My fear is our constant focusing on the Russians is deflecting away for some other things that we need to be investigating. There’s still some question as to whether the intrusion of the DNC server was an insider job or whether or not it was the Russians.”

For calling for an investigation into the murder of a DNC staffer which remains unsolved more than 10 months later, Farenthold was pounced on and cut off by CNN news anchor John Berman.

As recounted by Alicia Powe for WND:

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, the ‘insider job’ – what are you referring to here?” asked CNN’s John Berman.

“There’s stuff circulating on the Internet. My question is, why …” the congressman continued, but he was again cut off by Berman.

“What’s circulating on the Internet that you think is worthy of a congressional investigation? Because the D.C. police are investigating this, and so far they haven’t said there’s anything there” to suggest any DNC-link to Rich’s murder, Berman demanded.

The fourth-term congressman noted that the DNC denied the FBI’s “multiple requests” to examine the hacked computers. Instead, the DNC hired a third party organization, CrowdStrike, to perform an analysis.

“We’re relying only on the report of somebody that the DNC contracted to examine their computer rather than having federal officials [examine them],” Farenthold told CNN. “To me, we need to let the feds look at it.” […]

One private investigator told WND he has reason to believe the Metropolitan Police Department is hiding key evidence from the public and acting in collusion with the Washington, D.C., mayor to make the investigation go away. Another private investigator probing the case claimed former DNC interim chairwoman Donna Brazile contacted police and Rich’s family, demanding to know why the detective was “snooping” into Rich’s death.

Hey, CNN and John Berman.

Your prickly defensiveness is most noteworthy. What are you afraid a federal investigation would uncover? The truth?

rahm_emanuel_2

Year to date: 1,295 people shot in Chiraq. Rahm must be so proud.

From Chicago Tribune: Four teenage boys were shot over four hours in Chicago, including a 16-year-old killed in the South Shore neighborhood, according to police.

The 16-year-old was shot in the head around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday in the 7700 block of South Marquette Avenue on the South Side, police said. Officers responding to a call about gunfire found the boy on the ground outside, police said. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

On the West Side, two other boys, 14 and 17, were shot around 1:15 a.m. Thursday in the Little Village neighborhood, apparently with a rifle, police said. Officers responding to a call about gunfire found the boy on the ground outside, police said.

The boys were in a maroon truck near 25th Street and Trumbull Avenue when another vehicle pulled up and someone opened fire, police said.  The older teen was wounded in the back, and the other boy was wounded in the foot.  They were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized, police said.

Rifle casings could be seen near the intersection where the shooting took place. Less than two miles away at Mount Sinai, officers surrounded the truck that was pocked with several large bullet holes.

On the West Side just before 10:50 p.m. Wednesday, another 14-year-old boy was seriously wounded in the South Austin neighborhood, police said. He was walking in the 200 block of North Lockwood Avenue when someone opened fire, hitting him in the chest. He was taken in serious condition to Stroger Hospital.

Police arrest Calif. ethics prof. Eric Clanton for Antifa bikelock assaults at Berkeley protest

On Saturday, April 15, 2017, in Civic Center Park of Berkeley, California, a Patriots Rally by Trump supporters, including members of Oathkeepers, turned violent when radical leftists in black masks and black clothing, who call themselves Antifa (anti-fascists), launched a counter-rally and clashed with the patriots.

In a memo to Berkeley mayor and the City Council on the April 15 demonstration, Berkeley police chief Andrew Greenwood identified the Antifa as the instigators of violence. Greenwood wrote:

“On April 15, groups initially remained separated in the park. At one point, about three dozen ‘antifa’ entered the park over fencing, ultimately confronting demonstrators, and escalating violence, with fights and assaults breaking out.”

The day ended with eleven people being injured and the arrest of 20 people “for their roles in the violence at Civic Center Park”. The charges included assault with a deadly weapon, battery, and committing a criminal offense while wearing a mask. Authorities said at the time that they will pursue additional arrests as they “review social media and video footage”. (Source: Berkeleyside)

Meanwhile, citizen journalists and sleuths went to work, combing through videos and photos of the violent clash to unmask the Antifa thugs.

On April 19, five days after the clash, online sleuths of 4chan‘s /pol/ News Network and Rebel Media correspondent Jack Posobiec identified one of the masked Antifa rioters who had assaulted people with a bike-lock as a California college professor named Eric Clanton.

Among the people Clanton had assaulted with a bikelock on April 15 was this man in a red t-shirt (see below).

Here’s a video explaining how 4chan sleuths identified Eric Clanton as the bikelock thug:

Clanton claims to have an M.A. in Philosophy from San Francisco State University, and a B.A. in Philosophy from California State University, Bakersfield.

Clanton had taught philosophy at San Francisco State University. At the time of the April 15 riot, he was teaching at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA. Ironically, one of his teaching and research subjects is ethics.

His faculty profile at Diablo Valley College, now taken down, said:

Eric Clanton

Faculty – Philosophy, Pleasant Hill Campus

Eric has been teaching at DVC since 2015. He teaches introduction to philosophy with a background in teaching ethics, critical thinking, and comparative philosophy East/West. His primary research interests are ethics and politics. His work in political philosophy also centers on mass incarceration and the prison system. He is currently exploring restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.

After he was outed online, Clanton panicked. He scrubbed his social media, went underground and, pretending to ask for a friend, sought legal advice on Reddit (source: Dark Triad Man):

“My really good friend is being accused on social media of attacking someone at a protest and now his name is being smeared on social media. Does he have any recourse and can he be in any legal (civil or criminal) trouble because of these rumors?”

Yesterday, May 24, 2017, Berkeley police finally arrested Eric Clanton.

From Berkeleyside:

“Eric Clanton, a former teacher at Diablo Valley College, was arrested by Berkeley police . . . on suspicion of three counts of assault with a deadly weapon identified as a U-lock bike lock, and one of those assaults is alleged to have caused a significant injury. […]

Until Wednesday night, Berkeley investigators had declined to say whether they were looking into Clanton, despite the outcry online calling for his arrest. Wednesday, officers arrested him in Oakland at 12:15 p.m. He is being held at Berkeley Jail with a bail of $200,000, according to Alameda County sheriff’s office records online. Clanton, whose listed occupation is college professor, is scheduled for arraignment Friday. Police said they have identified three victims in the case. All three were struck in the head or neck with a bike lock, police said.”

California man, 20, who drugged and raped his teenage sister gets lenient sentence of less than a year prison as judge insists the ‘stigma’ is enough

nolan bruder

Sex offender Nolan Bruder

Unreal.

From Daily Mail: A 20-year-old man who drugged and raped his 16-year-old sister was sentenced to less than a year in prison by a California judge on Wednesday.

Nolan Bruder pleaded guilty earlier this month and admitted that he gave his younger sister high potency marijuana to smoke until she reached a point where she no longer recognized him as her brother after she resisted his repeated sexual advances, KRCR reported.

Bruder was sentenced by Judge William Follet to serve only three years in prison with all but 240 days suspended in favor of granting probation for rape of an intoxicated person, according to the Del Norte District Attorney’s Office.

Follet said that the stigma of this conviction along with the mandatory sex offender registration requirements would ‘sufficiently deter Bruder.’ 

After the judge’s sentencing, district attorney Dale Trigg said he ‘could not disagree more with (it).’

‘The message that this sends to our community is that sexual predators who get their juvenile siblings stoned enough can have sex with them without any meaningful consequence,’ Trigg told KRCR. ‘That is not the message I want to send to our community,’

Trigg said that the judge noted in court that the victim took her own clothes off and was not unconscious.

Follet apparently also questioned if there was enough evidence for a jury to convict Bruder, despite there being a video-taped confession that the 20-year-old gave after admitting to what he did.

During the sentencing hearing, Deputy District Attorney Annamarie Padilla argued that Bruder should be sentenced to prison for six years in following the Probation Department’s recommendation.

Trigg said that since the highly-publicized rape case involving ex-Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, the California legislature changed the law to make such crimes ineligible for probation.

Turner sexually assaulted an unconscious woman after a party and was eventually spent three months in jail for the crime. Trigg said that in this case, Bruder benefited from the fact that the crimes he committed pre-dated the change in the law, which allowed Follet to sentence him to probation.

The district attorney argued that Bruder’s crime is significantly worse than Turner’s. ‘In a lot of ways, this case is more egregious than Brock Turner,’ Trigg told KRCR. ‘This defendant took advantage of a position of trust as this victim’s big brother. He knew she didn’t want to have sex with him.

‘She told him that repeatedly. So he got her stoned on dabs he gave her until she didn’t even recognize him in order get what he wanted.’

‘Pansexual’ pervert proposes adding P for pedophiles to LGBT

We warned you about the slippery slope.

A self-appointed spokesman for the LGBT “community” named Ernst Steiner is urging LGBTs to add P to LGBT.

P is for “pedosexuals” — the Left’s new Orwellian euphemism for pedophiles.

Here’s Steiner’s propaganda of April 23, 2017 for a blog he founded called Heart Progress because, you see, fisting and banging bungholes and raping children is all about ♥ loove ♥, and “love is ageless” because pedophilia is just another sexual orientation and attraction, those noble LGBTPs just want to “legalize love”, and only “bigot” and “hatemongers” oppose and persecute those endearing “pedosexuals”:

For years, the struggle against hate and bigotry has gone on. For years, sexual minority groups of all sorts have faced persecution. Now, in the 21st century, we are finally beginning to see that bigotry begin to disappear. Homosexuals have the right to marry, minority genders are finally being recognized, transgender children are finally getting the treatment they need to be who they are, and most importantly, these groups are finally being given minority status.

But the sexual liberation movement has only just begun, and there’s still more work to be done. Yes, homosexuals have the right to marriage in some places, but there still needs to be global laws to ensure they have the right to marriage in all places. Sure, transgenders are being recognized for who they are, but discrimination against them is still rampant in today’s world. Luckily, these issues are being tackled by progressive groups across the globe, but there is still one minority group that is marginalized to the point of neglect: pedosexuals.

Since the beginning of the LGBT+ movement, pedosexuals have been there helping to achieve sexual liberation for all. Unfortunately, pedosexuals have also been the ones to stand up and take the heat to help prevent abuse toward their other sexual minority friends. This act of bravery among pedosexuals in the name of sexual equality has led to them being the ones being persecuted to this day, despite also being born with a different attraction. Now that the sexual liberation movement is succeeding, bigots have now focused all of their hate on pedosexuals, as they have already lost the war against other sexual minorities.

So the question still stands: Should the LGBTQ+ movement accept pedosexuals? I think that the answer is quite obvious: Absolutely! Pedosexuals have helped achieve so much for the other sexual minority groups, that it would simply be unjust to allow them to suffer in discrimination due to hateful bigots on the right. Pedosexuals are going through what other sexual minorities went through thirty years ago, all because they were willing to take the heat so that their allies within the sexual liberation movement could move forward.

We of the LGBTQ+ movement need to do the moral thing and progress passed this bigotry toward these sexual minorities that is so often encouraged by the systemically bigoted mainstream. We cannot stoop as low as the hatemongers that have kept ourselves down, and we need to stand up for those who’ve held such an important role in our liberation. As a pansexual man, I am in full support of pedosexual rights, and you should be too.

The dictionary says “pansexual” is someone who’s sexually attracted to people regardless of their gender. But why restrict yourself to just “people” of all genders? That’s species discrimination!

Just you wait and see. Next on the agenda of pansexual Ernst Steiner and his ilk will be bestiality, which they prefer to call zoophilia, ’cause banging animals is all about loove, loove, loove.

Katy Perry on Manchester Bombing at Ariana Grande Show: ‘We Need to Coexist’

katy-perry

The jihadists don’t want to co-exist with you Katy, no matter how naked you might be.

Here’s a pro-tip for Katy: That will NEVER happen. Jihadists don’t co-exist with us infidels. Foolish womyn.

From Yahoo: Katy Perry said she felt “devastated” following the terrorist attack outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England Monday. Speaking with radio host Elvis Duran, Perry said, “I think the greatest thing we can do now is unite as people, as fan bases, all of it. Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.

Perry also addressed fellow pop star Grande’s fans directly, saying, “I just want to say that I love all of you out there and I just know that some of our fan bases kind of go both ways. Ari’s fans are my fans, and my fans are Ari’s fans. We’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other.

The “Swish Swish” singer’s comments on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show follow a pair of messages she posted toTwitter Monday after news of the bombing broke. “Praying for everyone at Ariana Grande’s show,” Perry said. “Broken hearted for the families tonight. Broken hearted for Ari. Broken hearted for the state of this world.”

At least 22 attendees were killed by a suicide bomber outside the Manchester Arena, while around 60 more have been reported injured. On Tuesday, police arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the attack, while British Prime Minister Theresa May said police have the identity of the other assailant, who died when he detonated the device. The so-called Islamic State have claimed responsibility for the attack.

Numerous artists have also voiced their sorrow and support for Grande and her fans, including Harry Styles, Drake, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Missy Elliot, as well as Manchester natives and local music scene stalwarts such as Liam Gallagher, Johnny Marr and Peter Hook.

As for Perry, the pop star is set to release her new album, Witness, June 9th. Over the past year, she’s also embraced her role as an activist, serving as one of Hillary Clinton’s most vocal supporters during the 2016 election and notably donating $10,000 to Planned Parenthood last November.

Murder of Seth Rich: Our hope is now in Judicial Watch

Kim Dotcom is a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur and political party founder who resides in Auckland, New Zealand. He claims that “I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved,” and promised that he would release a full statement on Rich’s murder.

27-year-old Seth Rich was the disillusioned Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer, believed to have leaked thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks, who was murdered in the early morning of last July 10, in a residential Washington, D.C. neighborhood. The Democrats insist that the DNC emails had been hacked by Russia or agents in collusion with Moscow.

After teasing and making us wait for two days, this morning Kim Dotcom released his much anticipated “statement” on Seth Rich — the 27-year-old DNC staffer who was murdered last July 20 — which turned out to be something of an anticlimax. This is his statement:

#SethRich was a hero

I know that Seth Rich was involved in the DNC leak.

I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that Internet Party may find helpful.

I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.

“He wanted to change that from the inside.”

I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.

I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.

Our hope now is in Judicial Watch, the D.C.-based citizens’ watchdog group.

President of Judicial Watch (JW) Tom Fitton says his organization is now investigating the murder of Seth Rich. Last week, JW filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and the D.C. Mayor’s Office. JW also has a FOI request to the FBI about the alleged DNC hack. Fitton says:

“You can trust Judicial Watch to get to the bottom of this issue…and to get the documents directly so that you and the American people can figure out whether or not there needs to be a controversy about this tragic murder, or whether there’s something more than meets the eye.”
