Hillary Clinton takes part in art exhibition sitting behind replica Resolute desk reading her secret emails

She’s really pathetic now. You almost – ALMOST – feel sorry for her.

Yeah, no.

From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton sat at a replica of the Oval Office desk reading her own leaked emails as part of a modern art installation this week – proof that art can never quite imitate art, or for her supporters, that tragedy is repeated as farce.

The 2016 loser mocked her email scandal by unexpectedly volunteering to take part in artist Kenneth Goldmsith’s HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails at the Venice Biennale.

Clinton had traveled to Italy to visit the biennale, one of the world’s biggest art shows, when she asked to take part in the email installation.

She sat behind the replica Resolute Desk for an hour, flicking through the bound sets of her emails which had been sent to and from her secret server, and said: ‘They are just so boring.’

The emails were from the 60,000 pages of documents which were published by a combination of WikiLeaks and the State Department, revealing 30,000 of the emails on her server – and not from the 30,000 deleted emails which were notoriously erased with BleachBit.

Later she mocked on Twitter and Instagram: ‘Found my emails at the Venice Biennale. Someone alert the House GOP.’

Pancho Beto wants to force banks and credit card companies to stop enabling the sale of “weapons of war”

Fortunately this guy has no shot of becoming our president.

Pancho Beto was on a tweet storm yesterday:

“Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade—and with Washington unwilling to act, they need to cut off the sales of weapons of war today.”

“Banks and credit card companies must: Refuse to take part in the sale of assault weapons. Stop processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks. Stop doing business with gun & ammo manufacturers who produce or sell assault weapons.

“If enough of us make our voices heard now, we will force banks and credit card companies to act. Add your name to this petition we’re sending Visa, Mastercard, and the big banks”

And these people call President Trump the fascist.

Australian vegan sues neighbor for barbecuing meat

Massage therapist Cilla Carden of Girrawheen, a suburb of Perth, Australia, is a militant vegan.

9News and Daily Mail report that Carden is so incensed about her meat-eating neighbors that she actually sued them all the way up to the Supreme Court.

She complained that she’s fed up with the smell of meat cooking on the barbecue next door: “They’ve put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish. I can’t enjoy my backyard, I can’t go out there. It’s been devastating, it’s been turmoil, it’s been unrest, I haven’t been able to sleep. It’s deliberate, that’s what I told the courts, its deliberate.”

Carden had been locked in a battle since late 2018 with Toan Vu, who lives next door with his wife and children. Carden complained not just about Vu’s barbecuing meat, but also his and his wife’s cigarette smoke, and their children slamming basketballs into their shared fence at all hours of the day. According to documents seen by Daily Mail Australia, Carden also demanded that Vu control the weeds in their garden, repaint common fences and repay the cost of plants damaged on common property.

Vu said he had removed his barbecue from his yard and banned his children from playing basketball, to no avail.

Sensibly, a Supreme Court Judge and the State Administrative Tribunal both dismissed her case on the grounds that the neighbors have done nothing wrong, that they did not make enough noice to make them a nuisance, and that no other neighbours had complained. Carden’s request in July to appeal the decisions was also refused.

But Carden says she won’t give up on her fight and will return to court soon.

Meanwhile, as reported by the New York Post, thousands of Aussies are planning to attend a cookout outside Carden’s home on Saturday, October 19.

The cookout is organized on the Facebook page, “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden”. The event description reads:

“Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK,” .

The Nazis at Facebook seem to have taken down the page because the link to the “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden” no longer works.

But before Facebook took it down, the “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden” page showed 6.3K people indicated they would attend, and another 14K people were interested.

Carden’s lawyer, John Hammond of Hammond Legal, threatened that anyone who attends the October 19 cookout would face criminal charges:

“Any person who seeks to attend Ms Carden’s property on Saturday, October 19, 2019, or at any other time in relation to this event or matter will be referred to the WA police on the grounds of trespass. Security cameras will be installed to obtain vision of any person attending the property and the vision will be provided to the police.

By way of explanation this matter has been blown out of proportion. Ms Carden has no objection to people eating meat and no objection to people having barbecues.”

50 state attorneys general launch antitrust investigation of Google

Something is finally being done about Google, the tech behemoth that systematically discriminates against conservatives and Christians.

Tellingly, more than a year ago in May 2018, Google got rid of its unofficial “Don’t be evil” motto that had been part of the company’s corporate code of conduct since 2000.

On Monday, Sept. 9, 2019, attorneys general for 50 U.S. states and territories officially announced an antitrust investigation of Google‘s threat to competition, consumers and the continued growth of the web.

The Washington Post reports that the investigation is led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and seven other attorneys general, four Democrats and four Republicans in total. Every state except Alabama and California, the latter ironically the home of Silicon Valley, so far has signed onto the bipartisan effort, as have Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

During a news conference on Monday on the steps of the Supreme Court with officials from 11 states and the District of Columbia, Texas AG Ken Paxton, a Tea Party conservative, said the probe’s initial focus is Google’s online advertising, but promised the probe would go wherever the facts lead. State officials already have sent Google official legal demands for documents related to the investigation of online ads.

According to eMarketer, Google is expected to rake in more than $48 billion in U.S. digital ad revenue this year, far rivaling its peers, while capturing 75% of all spending on U.S. search ads. Describing Google as dominating “all aspects of advertising on the Internet and searching on the Internet,” Paxton said “They dominate the buyer side, the seller side, the auction side and the video side with YouTube.”

The other attorneys general raised additional complaints about Google, from the way the company processes and ranks search results to the extent to which it may not fully protect users’ personal information:

  • Sean Reyes, the Republican attorney general of Utah, said “There’s nothing wrong with being a dominant player when it’s done fairly,” and that while there is a “presumption” of innocence in such an investigation, still there is a “pervasiveness” to complaints about Google’s business practices.
  • Jeff Landry, the Republican attorney general of Louisiana, added: “We’re here because there’s an absolutely existential threat to our virtual marketplace.”
  • Ashley Moody, the Republican attorney general of Florida, said the states’ Google probe starts with the company’s vast data stores: “Google monitors our online behavior, and captures data on every one of us as we navigate the internet. This investigation will initially focus on capture of that information and whether Google embedded itself on every level of the online market [for] ad sales to monopolize this industry.”
  • Leslie Rutledge, a Republican attorney general from Arkansas, described Google as an “online search engine juggernaut” and raised her concern that searches for businesses, including doctors, are colored by the way the tech giant’s algorithms and advertising systems work — “I want the best advice, from the best doctors — not the doctor, not the clinic who can spend the most on advertising.”

Six years ago, federal watchdogs wrapped up an antitrust investigation into Google’s search and advertising practices and opted against bringing major penalties against the company, including breaking it up. Regulators around the world, however, have been more skeptical of Google: The European Union has issued the company $9 billion in competition-related fines over the past three years.

The attorneys general’s investigation marks the latest regulatory headache for Google and the rest of Silicon Valley, which have faced growing criticism — and widening state and federal scrutiny — into whether they’ve grown too big and powerful, undermining rivals and resulting in costlier or worse service for web users. Other probes include:

  • The Department of Justice and FTC also are scrutinizing Big Tech. DOJ has taken early interest in Google, and recently issued its first legal demand for records.
  • Another group of 11 state attorneys general — led by New York’s Letitia James — has begun their own probe against Facebook, on whether it violates competition laws and mishandles consumers’ personal information.

Some state leaders said they are working closely with their federal counterparts as these investigations unfold. But Karl Racine, the Democratic attorney general for D.C. and a participant in both the Facebook and Google probes, said he and the other state attorneys general wouldn’t hesitate to forge ahead if Washington once again opts against taking action against the tech giants: “The state attorneys general, they are an independent bunch, and they can be quite tenacious. So I’m very confident that this bipartisan group is going to be led by the facts, and not be swayed by any conclusion, that may fall short, if you will, if it’s inconsistent with our facts, on the [federal] side.”

Convicted child rapist Roman Polanski wins Venice Film Festival award

What an effect that “Me Too” movement (in part popularized by Hollyweird actress Alyssa Milano) had on “giving people a sense of the magnitude of the problem” of sexual harassment.

From Yahoo: “Joker” from director Todd Phillips won the Golden Lion, and “J’Accuse,” or “An Officer and a Spy,” from director Roman Polanski has won the Grand Jury Prize, the festival’s runner up prize, at the 76th edition of the Venice Film Festival.

The comic book film starring Joaquin Phoenix in an origin story of the iconic Batman villain beat out a lineup that also included films such as James Gray’s “Ad Astra” and Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat” for the top prize.

“I want to thank Warner Bros. and DC for stepping out of their comfort zone and taking a big swing on me,” director Todd Phillips said as he accepted the Golden Lion.

Polanski’s “An Officer and a Spy” stars Jean Dujardin in a film about the Dreyfus Affair. His presence at the festival generated some backlash, as it’s his first film since the director was expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He was not present in Venice to accept the award.

Read the whole story here.

Women among the jury included the following:

Lucrecia Martel, who once said this: “I feel bad for male friends and colleagues, but a man’s education is made, in a way, in order to avoid failure. That’s why I think gender violence is more men on women rather than women on men, because they are not able to manage frustration. This ability to manage frustration is a big advantage in this profession and I am actually very surprised that there are not more women making cinema today. Because being a woman makes you more ready to do this.”

Mary Harron, who made this claim at the Festival: “We’re trying to overturn a system of inertia that works in favor of the status quo: funders give money to people like themselves, or they are women trying to keep their position in a male-dominated world.”

Stacy Martin, who made this claim about the Festival: ”It’s a slow process, but in the hopes of achieving gender equality in a male-dominated industry, being included in the jury and being a part of the changes happening is very important to me.”

Take a bow, you hypocrites.

Unhealthy: Elle magazine features obese rapper in order to promote “inclusivity”

Lizzo is a 31-year-old rapper from Detroit. She’s all the rage now, even with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeting about her. According to HuffPo, “It’s truly something.”

Whatever.

This obese womyn is being promoted by the media as a proud big girl. Lizzo has stated, “I’m 5’10”, I’m big and I’ve always been this way – even when I was young I always had this mental gigantism where I felt bigger than I actually was and I still do.”

Lizzo is 5’10” and weighs 250 pounds. Her BMI is 35.9 indicating her weight is in the obese category for adults of her height.

Her obesity is being promoted in the Elle fashion magazine as “What the World Needs Now Is More Lizzo.”

Excerpts from the Elle article pushing this obesity inclusivity:

“Also helpful: regular self-care, which goes hand in hand with her message of self-love. She’s become something of an icon for the latter, but as with her success as an artist, those feelings of confidence and empowerment are hard-earned. “I take self-love very seriously. And I take it seriously because when I was younger, I wanted to change everything about myself,” she says. “I didn’t love who I was.

And the reason I didn’t love who I was is because I was told I wasn’t lovable by the media, by [people at] school, by not seeing myself in beauty ads, by not seeing myself in television…by lack of representation. My self-hatred got so bad that I was fantasizing about being other people. But you can’t live your life trying to be somebody else. What’s the point?”

As with all thing progressive, creating your “own truths” is only what matters. Not reality. Hence being obese is now a form of “body positivity.”

Self care and empowerment does not mean putting your physical being in the obese category, ladies. Seriously.

Also, please pick a side. Obesity and health care costs continue to rise yet you promote this body image as if there was no way to prevent it. All in the name of “inclusivity.”

Too bad, so sad: ThinkProgress news site has shut down

Imagine my distress…

From Yahoo: ThinkProgress, the influential news site that rose to prominence in the shadow of the Bush administration and helped define progressivism during the Obama years, is shutting down.

The outlet, which served as an editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress, will stop current operations on Friday and be converted into a site where CAP scholars can post. Top officials at CAP had been searching for a buyer to take over ThinkProgress, which has run deficits for years, and according to sources there were potentially three serious buyers in the mix recently. But in a statement to staff, Navin Nayak, the executive director of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said the site was ultimately unable to secure a patron.

“Given that we could find no new publisher, we have no other real option but to fold the ThinkProgress website back into CAP’s broader online presence with a focus on analysis of policy, politics, and news events through the lens of existing CAP and CAP Action staff experts,” said Nayak. “Conversations on how to do so are just beginning, but we will seek to reinvent it as a different platform for progressive change.”

A dozen ThinkProgress employees will be losing their jobs, a CAP aide said, as many who were on staff had already gone to work elsewhere and some were incorporated into the larger CAP infrastructure. Those who are being laid off will be given a severance package that runs through the end of November and health care coverage that lasts through the year, said the CAP aide.

As for the actual website, thinkprogress.org will continue to exist. But it will no longer function as an independent enterprise focused on original reporting. Instead, according to Nayak, it will be folded “back into CAP’s broader online presence” as a sounding board for policy and political analysis by existing CAP and CAP Action staff experts.

Hollyweird libtard Scarlett Johansson endorses Warren; claims demorat isn’t making “crazy, outlandish promises that seem impossible to reach”

From Daily Mail: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has snagged the endorsement of actress Scarlett Johansson, the highest-banking actress in Hollywood.

Johansson, who has played a role in prior presidential election efforts, is not only providing campaign cash but defending the progressive firebrand’s proposals as ‘realistic’ and achievable.

‘She feels like someone who is thoughtful and progressive but realistic,’ Johansson told the Hollywood Reporter. She referenced Warren’s policy-heavy campaign as she battles Sen. Bernie Sanders for support among the party’s left wing.

She has been gaining on former Vice President Joe Biden, who is stressing his ability to beat President Trump while Warren and Sanders push ‘Medicare for All’ plans.

‘It’s not like her campaign is making these crazy, outlandish promises that seem impossible to reach. There’s a strategy there,’ Johansson said of Warren.

Johansson is also vowing to make further public efforts in the election – though stopped short of saying she would take more public actions during the primaries, such as hosting a fundraiser or appearing on the stump with Warren.

She made the comments last month on the set of Marvel’s Avengers spinoff, Black Widow, outside London.

‘Other Democrats have said to me, ‘Oh, it’s really early to back someone,’ she told the publication. ‘That kind of worries me because it doesn’t feel that early to me. I’m like, “Really?” It’s disconcerting that’s there’s not a clear candidate at this time.’

She is one of a handful of celebs who maxed out to Warren in time for her June campaign finance report. Others included Bette Midler, Jane Fonda, and Disney’s Jeffrey Katzenberg, the Hill reported.

In 2018, Johansson was part of an innuendo-filled PSA for March for Our Lives and We Stand United called ‘First Time’ that encouraged people to vote by having celebrities share tidbits about their first experience at the ballot back.

‘I was nervous,’ Johansson said with a sly smile on her face. This presidential cycle, ‘I’ll be there however I’m needed,’ Johansson said.

‘If I can help with voter engagement, whether it’s doing some sort of PSA campaign or actively trying to involve people in the process of registering and voting. I really believe if people actually did vote, our government would look the way it’s supposed to, but people just don’t vote. It baffles me.’

Johansson backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The actress also continued to stand by director Woody Allen, who helped launch her blockbuster career, and who faces accusations of sexual abuse by daughter Dylan Farrow that he denies.

‘I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him,’ Johansson told the publication.

Chicago mayor tells Ted Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth” about gun control

Bossy Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Liberals sure do love telling other people what they can and cannot speak of.

From Yahoo (via HuffPo, hence the bias): Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot issued a blistering response to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) after he attempted to use the city as an example for why “gun control doesn’t work.”

Cruz on Monday, linking to a story on the far-right website Breitbart News about fatal gun violence in the city that took place over Labor Day Weekend, tweeted that “disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.”

“Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates,” he added. “Let’s protect our citizens.”

In reply, Lightfoot told Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth.”

In the same tweet, she posted a graph (with no source cited) showing how nearly 60% of the illegal firearms that were recovered in the city between 2013 and 2016 actually came from outside Illinois.

They were, Lightfoot wrote, “mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation.”

(Do tell, good mayor, how many of those recovered guns were stolen? And stolen by repeat offenders?)

Lightfoot struck a similar harsh tone with Ivanka Trump, an adviser to and the daughter of President Donald Trump, last month after she posted an error-strewn tweet about Chicago’s gun violence.

“It’s important when we’re talking about people’s lives to actually get the facts correct, which one can easily do if you actually cared about getting it right,” Lightfoot said at the time.

—————————————————-

Senator Cruz gave it right back to the good mayor tweeting:

“1/x Mayor, your anger is misplaced. Virtually every year, Chicago has the most murders of any city in America. In 2017, the top five were: Chicago (650 murders), Baltimore (343), Philadelphia (317), New York (290), and Los Angeles (286).

2/x All five of those cities have had Democratic mayors for decades and aggressive gun control policies—none seems to be working. Your explanation (“blame Indiana!”) doesn’t hold water. There are 27 states with GOP governors. Chicago is not alone in having neighboring red states.

3/x But Chicago’s murder totals are often DOUBLE the next closest city. So how do you explain the big cities in red states, without aggressive gun control laws, where murder rates are MUCH lower than Chicago?”

See his whole response to her here.

DOJ Inspector General referred Comey for prosecution but AG Barr refused to prosecute

Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz is the chief watchdog of the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Katie Pavlich reports for Townhall that on Thursday morning, August 29, 2019, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released an 83-page long report on fired FBI Director James Comey‘s misconduct — that Comey set a “dangerous precedent” by purposefully leaking to the media confidential FBI memos about conversations with President Trump for personal and political gain, so as to launch the Special Counsel investigation into the 2016 presidential election on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s alleged (but wholly without evidence) collusion with the Russians. During sworn congressional testimony in 2017, Comey himself admitted that he’d purposely leaked the confidential memos to a friend, who then gave them to the New York Times.

The IG’s report specifically addresses a number of claims made by Comey that the memos he leaked were “personal documents.” But the IG concluded the memos, which were written on an official FBI computer while Comey was working in his official capacity as FBI director, belong to the FBI. Even worse, after Comey was fired he held onto the memos, which was against FBI protocol. From the report:

We conclude that the Memos were official FBI records, rather than Comey’s personal documents.  Accordingly, after his removal as FBI Director, Comey violated applicable policies and his Employment Agreement by failing to either surrender his copies of Memos 2, 4, 6, and 7 to the FBI or seek authorization to retain them; by releasing official FBI information and records to third parties without authorization; and by failing to immediately alert the FBI about his disclosures to his personal attorneys once he became aware in June 2017 that Memo 2 contained six words (four of which were names of foreign countries mentioned by the President) that the FBI had determined were classified at the “CONFIDENTIAL” level.

Comey told the Office of the Inspector General that he considered Memos 2 through 7 to be his personal documents, rather than official FBI records.  He said he viewed these Memos as “a personal aide-mémoire,” “  like [his] diary” or   “like [his] notes,” which contained his “recollection[s]” of his conversations with President Trump. Comey further stated that he kept Memos 2, 4, 6, and 7 in a personal safe at home because he believed the documents were personal records rather than FBI records. Comey’s characterization of the Memos as personal records finds no support in the law and is wholly incompatible with the plain language of the statutes, regulations, and policies defining Federal records, and the terms of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement.  

We conclude that the Memos are official FBI records as defined by statute, regulations, Department and FBI policies, and Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement. Because they are official FBI records, Comey was required to handle the Memos in compliance with all applicable Department and FBI policies and the terms of his Employment Agreement.

The IG report concluded that by retaining and leaking official FBI documents, including confidential documents, James Comey  violated:

  1. The DOJ and policies pertaining to the retention, handling, and dissemination of FBI records and information; and
  2. The requirements of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement.

In the words of the Inspector General’s report:

[A]fter his removal as FBI Director two months later, Comey provided a copy of Memo 4, which Comey had kept without authorization, to Richman with instructions to share the contents with a reporter for The New York Times. Memo 4 included information that was related to both the FBI’s ongoing investigation of Flynn and, by Comey’s own account, information that he believed and alleged constituted evidence of an attempt to obstruct the ongoing Flynn investigation; later that same day, The New York Times published an article about Memo 4 entitled, “Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation.”

The responsibility to protect sensitive law enforcement information falls in large part to the employees of the FBI who have access to it through their daily duties. On occasion, some of these employees may disagree with decisions by prosecutors, judges, or higher ranking FBI and Department officials about the actions to take or not take in criminal and counterintelligence matters. They may even, in some situations, distrust the legitimacy of those supervisory, prosecutorial, or judicial decisions. But even when these employees believe that their most strongly-held personal convictions might be served by an unauthorized disclosure, the FBI depends on them not to disclose sensitive information.Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility. By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees—and the many thousands more former FBI employees—who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information. Comey said he was compelled to take these actions “if I love this country…and I love the Department of Justice, and I love the FBI.” However, were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director’s example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly, as Comey himself noted in his March 20, 2017 congressional testimony. Comey expressed a similar concern to President Trump, according to Memo 4, in discussing leaks of FBI information, telling Trump that the FBI’s ability to conduct its work is compromised “if people run around telling the press what we do.” This is no doubt part of the reason why Comey’s closest advisors used the words “surprised,” “stunned,” “shocked,” and “disappointment” to describe their reactions to learning what Comey had done.

In a country built on the rule of law, it is of utmost importance that all FBI employees adhere to Department and FBI policies, particularly when confronted by what appear to be extraordinary circumstances or compelling personal convictions. Comey had several other lawful options available to him to advocate for the appointment of a Special Counsel, which he told us was his goal in making the disclosure. What was not permitted was the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive investigative information, obtained during the course of FBI employment, in order to achieve a personally desired outcome.

Incredibly, despite the DOJ Inspector General’s findings, Comey will not be prosecuted.

About a month before the release of the Inspector General’s report, The Hill had reported that “Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz’s team referred Comey for possible prosecution under the classified information protection laws, but Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors working for Attorney General William Barr reportedly have decided to decline prosecution,” ostensibly because the prosecutors “did not believe they had enough evidence of Comey’s intent to violate the law, according to multiple sources.”

A source told The Hill that prosecutors “working for” Barr were particularly concerned with one memo that Comey had leaked to a friend for publication by the media contained information that the FBI subsequently classified at the lowest level of “confidential” only after Comey had transmitted the information. And so the Attorney General’s office decided not to prosecute Comey so as not to “look petty and vindictive,”

After he learned that Attorney General Barr will not prosecute him, James Comey then completely misrepresented and twisted the Inspector General’s report into what it was not.

In a tweet on August 29, 2019, Comey crowed that the DOJ Inspector General found no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media. Comey accused President Trump of giving the public “bad information”. Then Comey had the chutzpah to demand “a public apology from those who defamed me” or “a quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice.”

Justice really is dead in America.
