When White Lives Don’t Matter

Can’t top the Kamala news

A beautiful 5 year old baby boy riding his bicycle was shot by his neighbor point blank in Wilson NC. One minute he is enjoying his life, the next it all ends because he rode into his neighbors yard.’

5 Year old boy Riding Bike Shot Dead By Neighbor, 25  ( read link)

Kid probably tried to take his ‘Skittles’

Probably a good thing I wasn’t the arresting officer.
The “suspect” looks ‘choke-hold -worthy’ to me;
But I’m sure that this lad had a hard life and he
was ‘just starting to turn it around’.

The execution of a 5 year old boy by a 25 year old black man is a story that should be the lead in newspapers, TV and cable news, etc throughout the cycle, throughout the nation!

It has not been reported by MOST news outlets. I believe it is because it definitely does not fit the BLM narrative.

The 5 year old was a white boy!

THERE HAVE BEEN NO RIOTS, NO LOOTING, FAR AS I CAN TELL, THE POLICE SPOKESPERSON DID NOT HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE FOR NATIONAL NEWS OUTLETS.

The ‘suspect’ (identified by eye witnesses) was not held in a chokehold, was not gunned down by the white police who arrested him; there have been no marches…no “Justice for Cannon” (the 5 year old)…and saddest of all, I’ve not seen any national news of what I would think, could be regarded as an incredibly shocking crime! The Daily Mail (UK) and The Blaze, and the local (area) No. Carolina paper and TV are the only outlets I’ve seen it reported.

As I noted earlier, maybe Darius was justified if the ‘white boy’ was trying to take his Skittles.      dlh           Again:

Which basement will Kamala Harris campaign from?

Will Harris be quarantined in various Democrat run states?

So the woman who basically called Biden a racist and believed his sexual assault accusers, is now in bed with him.  What a piece of work she is.

The big national pandemic question is, is it not incumbent on Kamala Harris  to demonstrate she is as responsible as the top of the Democrat ticket and sequester, “self-isolate”, shelter in place, lockdown, travel with family only, social distance, essentially never show her face in public without a mask, ride a bicycle, in order to encourage compliance with Democrat  “public health authority” recommendations?

The Problem With Kamala Harris
This came to a head with her believing Joe Biden’s accusers. Therein lies a funny side of this that the media will mostly ignore. Harris said she believed Biden’s accusers. Now she does not. Harris is a progressive opportunist. She will take any stridently progressive position to get herself power and abandon those positions if necessary to keep acquiring power.

The Dem VP, — who knows, but in a week we are supposed to

The Solution to Biden’s VP Problem: Michelle Obama  

This article lends credence to our illustrious senior editor’s bet, all of a dollar, that Moochelle will be the Dem’s Presidential nominee.  If they pick her as VP I will award the dollar because in effect that is what she would be elected to as Biden would be of no consequence were the team to be elected.  In a Moochelles pick, her handlers, Barack et al and her, would be the new old administration, populated to some extent as well by who-all else Biden is obligated to at this point.

But will she take it?  Perhaps pressure is building sufficient enough and I guess she never ruled VP out technically, only the presidential nomination.  And we all know what Obama promises are worth.  I still doubt it because she does not want to be part of a losing ticket. Certainly not to Trump and there is that the country is in dire straights, that the Obamas know they are incompetent to resolve and keep their Hampton buds happy.

This Willie Brown  – advisory to Kamala Harris may be interpreted to fit the Moochelle scenario, but I suspect other facets to the matter are also possible.  Perhaps more on that later this week.

Will Nike introduce its “71st Anniversary of China’s Communist Party founding” basketball shoe?

Something To Which NBA Athletes Can Stand and be Respectful Toward (?)

Yo, Van Guny, put this on your Nike sneakers

“On Thursday, Stan van Gundy, the former head Coach for the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat, who now serves as an NBA analyst for TNT and NBA TV, issued a vicious attack on America in response to an article ripping the NBA that stated, “When National Hockey League games used to turn into brawls, the joke was ‘I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out.’ Now you can tune into a social justice protest and a Chinese Basketball Association game might break out.”        Gundy apparently didn’t like that.

“Chinese Basketball Association” To be clear…it used to be known as the “National (USA) Basketball Association”

Will the ‘patriotic’ folks at Nike soon introduce the PRC Flag basketball shoe in time for the 71st anniversary?

(On 1 October 1949, Mao Zedong – or Chairman Mao – announced the formation of the PRC (the “Peoples’ Republic of China), after communist forces won a bloody civil war.)

What a great opportunity for Nike and the NBA to help Xi JinPing celebrate this occasion. An opportunity to further ingratiate their entities with the Chinese communists and thus insure making $millions more!

Kaepernick, Nike, and the NBA rejected the Betsy Ross USA Flag on Nike shoes. Understandable. The thing all three have in common is their rejection of America and individual freedom.

For Nike and the NBA, there’s money to be made in Communist China…Colin and LeBron can appreciate that!        dlh

To read more about Nike’s decision, the PBS version is linked  here   :

Why Nike pulled Betsy Ross flag shoes after Kaepernick criticism 

“Listening to somebody (Kaepernick) that has helped the brand in so many countless ways, it makes sense. It would be completely hypocritical for them not to listen to him,” Allieri said.

Nike’s annual sales jumped 7% to more than $39 billion in the aftermath of their repudiation of America and its iconic symbol.

Beating a dead mare?

The distraught Peggy Noonan writes:  America Is a Coalition of the Worried

There’s something I’ve been trying to write for a few weeks but can’t get my hands around—but it’s as if there’s no president, it’s an empty White House, nobody’s really there, it’s not an administration but an eccentric event that causes clamor. I’ve never had that feeling before, that a White House is empty and weightless. The media, whose job it is to hold it to account, are distrusted. A Knight Foundation-Gallup survey released this week showed 86% of Americans seeing “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of political bias in news coverage. The Democrats can’t agree on what they’re running on beyond “We’re Not Trump, ” which may or may not be enough, with a presidential candidate age 77 who sometimes seems confused. People can’t even be confident the election will work, that it will be orderly, that the old rough integrity of the system will hold. They know there will likely be no “election night” with states called and a winner declared. But will there be an election week? Month? 

 

Poor Miss Peggy.

In her 20th year writing a column for the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan becomes more incoherent with each now-pitiful attempt to ‘put words to paper’.

Poor Peggy. in her column this week, Ms. Noonan is “worried”…and so is all of America, in her ‘mind’.

Maybe it is. Or, maybe the entire nation is not experiencing a ‘paralysis’ of fear and concern.

In Noonan’s case, she’s been “worried” since 2016 when Donald Trump was elected president. Before that Peggy apparently was an admirer of his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama.

Prior to the Obama reign, Peggy was not so happy with G.W. Bush. That was mainly because, in our opinion, Mr. Bush just refused to recognize what Ms. Noonan considers her outsize talents, wisdom, and past contributions to the nation, made during her labors in the Reagan and GHW Bush administrations.

As we’ve noted before, Peggy’s most notable contribution to GHW’s “success” was her speech writing ‘gift’ to his eventual one term presidency: the “Read my lips, no new taxes” line she is famous for.

Probably, that was the principal reason behind GW’s failure to offer Peggy a high post, or any post, in his presidency.

Though, I ‘ve never seen the term “miffed” in any Noonan column or speech, I think it describes how she has felt toward GOP presidents ever since. Her view of GW and regard for Obama was reflected in the following:

In 2016, she wrote this: “He [Obama] has within him the possibility to change the direction and tone of American foreign policy, which need changing; his rise will serve as a practical rebuke to the past five years, which need rebuking…”

There was no such optimistic refrain at the beginning of Trump’s presidency.

And, for that and other reasons, Peggy Noonan has written herself into “has-been” status and as a columnist who doesn’t have much to say of interest these days.         dlh

In case you thought we were too skeptical about the Durham et al investigations –

  • None other than Sara Carter, intense, respected, informed investigative journalist “on the case” is at least as suspicious, distrustful
  • We still have a glimmer of hope and would love to be proved wrong about our doubts
  • Excellent source for the latest on this matter, be sure to bookmark her site as we have

Russia Hoax: Are We All Being Played? Put Up or Shut Up. 
By Sara Carter   — bold our emphasis

Russia Hoax: Are We All Being Played? Put Up or Shut Up.

Many people have asked me why I haven’t written a book since the start of my reporting on the FBI’s debunked investigation into whether President Donald Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia.

I haven’t done so because I don’t believe the most important part of the story has been told: indictments and accountability. I also don’t believe we actually know what really happened on a fundamental level and how dangerous it is to our democratic republic. That will require a deeper investigation that answers the fundamental questions of the role played by former senior Obama officials, including the former President and his aides.

We’re getting closer but we’re still not there.

Still, the extent of what happened during the last presidential election is much clearer now than it was years ago when trickles of evidence led to years of what Fox News host Sean Hannity and I would say was peeling back the layers of an onion. We now know that the U.S. intelligence and federal law enforcement was weaponized against President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and administration by a political opponent. We now know how many officials involved in the false investigation into the president trampled the Constitution.

I never realized how terrible the deterioration inside the system had become until four years ago when I stumbled onto what was happening inside the FBI. Those concerns were brought to my attention by former and current FBI agents, as well as numerous U.S. intelligence officials aware of the failures inside their own agencies. But it never occurred to me when I first started looking into fired FBI Director James Comey and his former side kick Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that the cultural corruption of these once trusted American institutions was so vast.

I’ve watched as Washington D.C. elites make promises to get to the bottom of it and bring people to justice. They appear to make promises to the American people they never intended to keep. Who will be held accountable for one of the most egregious abuses of power by bureaucrats in modern American political history? Now I fear those who perpetuated this culture of corruption won’t ever really be held accountable.

These elite bureaucrats will, however, throw the American people a bone. It’s how they operate. They expect us to accept it and then move on.

One example is the most recent decision by the Justice Department to ask that charges be dropped on former national security advisor Michael Flynn. It’s just a bone because we know now these charges should have never been brought against the three-star general but will anyone on former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team have to answer for ruining a man’s life. No, they won’t. In fact, Flynn is still fighting for his freedom.

Think about what has already happened? From former Attorney General Jeff Session’s appointment of Utah Prosecutor John Huber to the current decision by Attorney General William Barr to appoint Connecticut prosecutor John Durham to investigate the malfeasance what has been done? Really, nothing at all. No one has been indicted.

The investigation by the FBI against Trump was never predicated on any real evidence but instead, it was a set-up to usurp the American voters will. It doesn’t matter that the establishment didn’t like Trump, in 2016 the Americans did. Isn’t that a big enough reason to bring charges against those involved?

His election was an anomaly for the Washington elite. They were stunned when Trump won and went into full gear to save their own asses from discovery and target anyone who supported him. The truth is they couldn’t stand the Trump and American disruptors who elected him to office.

Now they will work hand in fist to ensure that this November election is not a repeat win of 2016. We’re already seeing that play out everyday on the news.

But Barr and Durham are now up against a behemoth political machine that seems to be operating more like a steam roller the closer we get to the November presidential elections. Barr told Fox News in June that he expects Durham’s report to come before the end of summer but like always, it’s August and we’re still waiting.

Little is known about the progress of Durham’s investigation but it’s curious as to why nothing has been done as of yet and the Democrats are sure to raise significant questions or concerns if action is taken before the election. They will charge that Durham’s investigation is politically motivated. That is, unless the charges are just brought against subordinates and not senior officials from the former administration.

I sound cynical because I am right now. It doesn’t mean I won’t trying to get to the truth or fighting for justice.

But how can you explain the failure of Durham and Barr to actually interview key players such as Comey, or former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, or former CIA Director John Brennan. That is what we’re hearing from them.

If I am going to believe my sources, Durham has interviewed former FBI special agent Peter Strzok, along with FBI Special agent Joe Pientka, among some others. Still, nothing has really been done or maybe once again they will throw us bone.

If there are charges to be brought they will come in the form of taking down the subordinates, like Strzok, Pientka and the former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who altered the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act application against short term 2016 campaign advisor Carter Page.

Remember DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report in December, 2019: It showed that a critical piece of evidence used to obtain a warrant to spy on Page in 2016 was falsified by Clinesmith.

But Clinesmith didn’t act alone. He would have had to have been ordered to do such a egregious act and that could only come from the top. Let’s see if Durham ever hold those Obama government officials accountable.

I don’t believe he will.

Why? Mainly because of how those senior former Obama officials have behaved since the troves of information have been discovered. They have written books, like Comey, McCabe, Brennan and others, who have published Opinion Editorials and have taken lucrative jobs at cable news channels as experts.

It’s frankly disgusting and should anger every American. We would never get away with what these former Obama officials have done. More disturbing is that the power they wield through their contacts in the media and their political connections allows these political ‘oligarchs’ unchallenged power like never before.

Here’s one of the latest examples. Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s top prosecutor Andrew Weissmann just went after Barr in a New York Times editorial on Wednesday. He went so far as to ask the Justice Department employees to ignore any direction by Barr or Durham in the Russia investigations.

I think Barr and Durham need to move fast if they are ever going to do anything and if they are going to prove me wrong. We know now that laws were broken and our Constitution was torched by these rogue government officials.

We shouldn’t give the swamp the time-of-day to accuse the Trump administration of playing politics or interfering with this election. If the DOJ has evidence and is ready to indict they need to do it now.

If our Justice Department officials haven’t done their job to expose the corruption, clean out our institutions and hold people accountable then it will be a tragedy for our nation and the American people. I’m frankly tired of the back and forth. I’m tired of being toyed with and lied to. I believe they should either put up or shut up.

From Weissmann’s New York Times Opinion Editorial

Today, Wednesday, marks 90 days before the presidential election, a date in the calendar that is supposed to be of special note to the Justice Department. That’s because of two department guidelines, one a written policy that no action be influenced in any way by politics. Another, unwritten norm urges officials to defer publicly charging or taking any other overt investigative steps or disclosures that could affect a coming election.

Attorney General William Barr appears poised to trample on both. At least two developing investigations could be fodder for pre-election political machinations. The first is an apparently sprawling investigation by John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, that began as an examination of the origins of the F.B.I. investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The other, led by John Bash, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas, is about the so-called unmasking of Trump associates by Obama administration officials. Mr. Barr personally unleashed both investigations and handpicked the attorneys to run them.

But Justice Department employees, in meeting their ethical and legal obligations, should be well advised not to participate in any such effort

High profile politically charged cases — justice not blind — prosecutors are judge, jury & sociologists?

Respected conservative legal commentator has great confidence in John Durham

We find it troubling, however, when the same commentator reveals that for Durham prosecutions are judgment calls where social effects are relevant

That could be a pretty slippery basis of analysis that maybe should be above the prosecutors pay-grade on politically momentous matters, especially where so much evidence points to guilt by politcal actors

The excerpts below are from an article written by Paul Sperry, an excellent reporter for Real Clear Politics. His analysis parallels our own, which we have shared with readers in the past…up to a point!  Our analysis follows.

Ex-Colleagues See Durham Dropping Bombshells Before Labor Day

“Justice Department policy prohibits prosecutors from taking overt steps in politically charged cases typically within 60 days of an election. Accordingly, Durham would have to make a move by the Friday before Labor Day, or Sept. 4.”

“(Durham’s)… team is led by his deputy, Nora Dannehy, who specializes in the prosecution of complex white-collar and public corruption cases. A Democrat with a reputation for integrity, she left a high-paying corporate job to rejoin Durham’s office in March 2019, the month after Barr was confirmed.

– “There’s no question that if Biden is elected, everything Durham has done at that point will be canceled out,” Swecker explained, adding that Biden would replace Barr and possibly even Durham. But by putting indictments and reports “into the public arena” before the election, Durham would put a Biden administration in the position of either taking further action or closing down his probe.

– “I would find it hard to believe that he punts under any circumstances,” said former assistant FBI director Chris Swecker, who knows Durham personally and has worked with the “hard-nosed prosecutor” on prior investigations. 

– (Swecker)… pointed out that Durham “would not risk throwing away 16 months of investigative work if he delayed action beyond the election.”
——-

Sperry believes, as we do, that Durham is a gifted and persistent prosecutor/investigator. And he also believes that his integrity is strong and that he will see that the facts of his investigation are known to the American people and will make every effort to see that justice is done.

We don’t doubt Mr. Durham’s skill, devotion to justice, or intent to ‘do the right thing’.

However, his perception of “the right thing” might be somewhat different from ours.

It has been suggested, though since apparently denied by AG Barr, that Durham’s sense of the “right thing” might be to not reveal the results of his probe and the conclusions he’s drawn from it until AFTER the election…so as not to appear that it’s “just politics”.

Mr. Swecker doesn’t believe that to be the case. He knows Durham very well and apparently has a solid basis for his ‘faith’ in him.

I guess we’ll see.

There are, to us, some troubling aspects to this, however, that provides some basis for our concerns.

First, of course, is the apparent “heads up” from Barr on Durham’s “political” concerns. Barr’s comments to the House Judiciary Committee did not totally allay our fears that that may be the DOJ’s operative position.

Then there’s Durham’s choice of a “Deputy”, Ms. Nora Dannehy…identified as a “Democrat”, with a “reputation for integrity”. She had worked for Durham when he was Federal Prosecutor  (Conn.) and investigated high profile cases into defendants on “both sides of the aisle”.

We’ve found nothing to refute her reputation’s characterization, other than, we’ve heard a lot of Washington people described precisely that way…Rod Rosenstein, Bob Mueller, James Comey, etc, etc.

For the moment, though, we’ll accept that Ms. Dannehy, although a Democrat, is “impeccable”, “above reproach”, “no nonsense”….

More importantly, maybe, in a ‘puff piece’ by the National Review, entitled, “The Last Trusted Prosecutor in Washington” (Geraghty article further excerpted below)  “…(regarding the investigation of Trump’s)… potential connections to Russia during the 2016 campaign. Durham will not speak to the press at all until he is done, and probably not even then. He and his team are extremely unlikely to leak. He is not afraid to reach conclusions that will disappoint or frustrate Attorney General Barr or President Trump. He will not be rushed; there is no guarantee that Durham will reach any prosecutorial decisions before the 2020 elections.”

And thus, we have John Durham’s “excellent reputation” going in to the “Trump Investigation”, hailed as “a professional who will not be rushed” , and the views of a former Asst. FBI Director, who knows Durham well, saying that he “would not risk throwing away 16 months of investigative work if he delayed action beyond the election.”

And, so, the question is still out there:

WILL JOHN DURHAM WRAP UP HIS INVESTIGATION, WITH A FINDING THAT THE MOUNTAIN OF EVIDENCE PROVES WRONGDOING BY THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION, BEFORE THE ELECTION IN NOVEMBER?

OR, WILL HE, WISHING TO AVOID BEING ACCUSED OF “POLITICIZING” HIS INVESTIGATION, BE WILLING TO RISK SEEING HIS WORK “CANCELLED OUT” BY A NEW (BIDEN) ADMINISTRATION?

WE’LL SEE.        dlh


Excerpts from lengthy November 4, 2019 National Review article by Jim Geraghty  about Durham:   (bold our emphasis)

The Last Trusted Prosecutor in Washington

John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now.

In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. Some Trump fans believe there was a vast effort by a “deep state” of high-ranking intelligence and law-enforcement officials to smear Trump or hinder his campaign by creating a perception of corrupt ties to Russia. In late October, the New York Times quoted unnamed sources who said that Durham’s probe had officially become a criminal investigation, meaning he now has the power to subpoena for witness testimony and documents, to convene a grand jury, and to file criminal charges.    . . .

In September 2008, U.S. Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey appointed Ms. Dannehy to supervise a national investigation concerning the dismissal of nine U.S. Attorneys in 2006.

“Nora Dannehy has superior legal skills and an unmatched reputation for integrity,” said U.S. Attorney Durham. “During her long tenure in the Justice Department, she led some of the most sensitive investigations ever undertaken by our office. I am thrilled that Nora has chosen to return to public service and look forward to working with her and relying on her counsel and decades of legal experience to further the cause of justice for the people of Connecticut and our nation.”     . . .

In his speech at University of St. Joseph, Durham did not discuss his investigation of the tapes, but he did discuss the prosecutor’s calculus of when charges are warranted, which likely applied in this decision. “You are only authorized to bring a prosecution if you believe, based upon the evidence that you have, that you are likely to be able to prove a case not to the probable cause standard, which is all that is required to arrest somebody, but if you believe you can prosecute the case and prove that case beyond a reasonable doubt, and beyond that, that you would be able to sustain that conviction on appeal,” Durham said. “And if you can’t say, in all honesty, that you would be able to do that, then prosecution is not warranted. When on the nightly news, you’re watching what Bob Mueller is doing, and so forth, however that investigation turns out, whatever Mr. Mueller and his colleague conclude, if it’s not satisfactory to the public, it may very well be because Bob Mueller is an honorable man who applies those principles of law as he’s been taught and as he’s taught to others.”

“Durham was not just saying, ‘Do I have enough here that I could actually get a prosecution?’,” Deitz said. “But ‘Do I have enough here to justify — legally, morally, societally — this person’s conviction?’ That’s another reason why I admire him.”  . . .

Manhattan Prosecutor Seeking Trump Taxes Cites ‘Possibly Extensive and Protracted Criminal Conduct’  Wall Street Journal, 8/4/2020

“Possibly?”

MEANWHILE, BILL BARR AND JOHN DURHAM SHUFFLE SLOWLY THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN OF EVIDENCE OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S ENORMOUS AND FAR-REACHING CRIMINAL EFFORTS AGAINST THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND ADMINISTRATION

They Don’t Want To Appear “Political”

Barr seems oblivious to the highly “inferior” quality of ‘evidence’ of Democrats versus what is already known (and proven) about Obama-Biden wrongdoing…

And completely unaware that actions like Democrat Vance in New York could cost Trump reelection…and with it, the burial of any accountability by Obama’s minion’s for their criminality! All Durham’s evidence will vanish!

District attorney’s office points to public reports of alleged fraudulent financial activities by Trump Organization; White House says effort is part of ‘witch hunt’

“Public reports”???

Certainly doesn’t appear “political”!  Democrats would never stoop to that, or advantageous timing                        dlh

From the WSJ:

The Manhattan district attorney’s office said it is justified in seeking financial documents from President Trump and his company as part of a complex investigation into alleged insurance and bank fraud by the Trump Organization and its officers.

In a new legal filing Monday, District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. urged a federal court to allow the office to move forward with its investigation of “possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization” and to dismiss Mr. Trump’s most recent challenge to its subpoena, requesting eight years of records from his accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP. 

“This is a continuation of the worst witch hunt in American history,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.

The legal battle over Mr. Trump’s tax records dates back to August 2019, when the Manhattan district attorney’s office first subpoenaed Mazars. Mr. Trump sued to block the subpoena, arguing that a sitting president couldn’t be criminally investigated. 

Last month, the Supreme Court rejected the president’s claims of immunity from state-level grand jury investigations. “In our judicial system, ‘the public has a right to every man’s evidence,’” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the court. “Since the earliest days of the Republic, ‘every man’ has included the President of the United States.”

Mr. Trump’s lawyers vowed to continue fighting the subpoena with new arguments. They filed an amended complaint in Manhattan federal court last week, calling the prosecutor’s subpoena overbroadand issued in bad faith 

Mr. Vance on Monday said that argument “rests on the false premise that the grand jury’s investigation is limited to so-called ‘hush-money’ payments made by Michael Cohen on behalf of [Mr. Trump] in 2016.”

“The Mazars Subpoena is no different from many grand jury subpoenas routinely issued in white-collar crime investigations, which are typically dependent on financial and corporate records,” Mr. Vance said.

Court documents cited articles by The Wall Street Journal, which exposed an alleged 2016 payment to Stephanie Clifford, the former adult-film star known professionally as Stormy Daniels who claimed she had an affair with Mr. Trump, and by the Washington Post, which reported other accusations of fraudulent financial activities, including allegations the president inflated his net worth and property valuations to lenders and investors 

The president has denied the affair with Ms. Clifford and that he knew about the payments when they were made.

Mr. Trump has previously said his net worth fluctuates. “It goes up and down with markets and with attitudes and with feelings, even my own feeling,” he told lawyers in a 2007 deposition.

Let’s see. In Seattle the Antifa and BLM mobs want taxpayers to “pay for the protective equipment” they need to successfully attack the cops and destroy public and private property!

BLM Protesters Say Protective Gear Prices Them Out Of civil Rights

A group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle are claiming that they’re being priced out of their civil rights by the prohibitive costs of defending themselves against police violence.The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court alleges that the repeated use of force by the Seattle Police Department has made it impossible for them to exercise their right to protest without pricey personal protective gear.

“Because protesters now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely, the indiscriminate use of weapons by SPD implicates equal protection,” the lawsuit says.

The five plaintiffs — Jessica Benton, Shelby Bryant, Anne Marie Cavanaugh, Alyssa Garrison and Clare Thomas — allege helmets, gas masks, protective clothing, goggles, gloves, boots, umbrellas and other gear are needed to fight off police pepper spray, less-lethal projectiles and other crowd dispersal measures.They claim they have been the victims of “indiscriminate” police violence during protests in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, which was home to the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, known as CHOP, on June 25.

The suit seeks a temporary restraining order prohibiting the department from using force or crowd dispersal munitions.

“Because the Seattle Police Department has acted above and outside the law in dispensing its unbridled force, and the City has failed to prevent same, the government effect is to establish a de facto protest tax: individual protesters subjected to SPD’s unabated and indiscriminate violence now must purchase cost-prohibitive gear to withstand munitions — even when peacefully protesting — as a condition to exercising their right to free speech and peaceable assembly,” the suit said.

A spokesperson for the Seattle City Attorney’s Office said it will “look into these new claims and intend(s) to defend the City in this matter.”

“Helmets, face shields, body armor , (fireproof) gloves, WonderWoman bracelets that make bullets harmless…all this is just too costly for your average ‘Black Lives Matter’ protester.”Who can afford all that equipment? You try handling Molotov Cocktails without fireproof gloves.”

“And, do you have any idea how much a good, heavy stiff, solid cane to bash cops over the head with, costs?”

“Rioting just isn’t any fun if you don’t have a gas mask! And, believe me, they’re expensive”.

“It’s just not a fair fight”, they must lament.

And, finally…Why haven’t Chuck and Nancy put a few million$ into thre COVID bill to cover these costs (Oh…they Have?)

This is a true story according to the Washington Times:

OPRAH SAYS SYSTEM OF WHITE PEOPLE KEEPS BLACKS OFF ‘LADDER OF SUCCESS’ 

But first, our comment:

“Can you imagine how much a talent like me could’ve made if the ‘racist white man’  hadn’t discriminated against me?”, asked multi-billionaire, Winfrey.

“And, my friend LeBron…with his high intellect and political acumen, if it weren’t for ‘whitey’s system’, he would have been our first 5 term President!”

Washington Times article:

Billionaire Oprah Winfrey says it’s important for Americans to realize that “the system of White people” continues to keep Black citizens off “the ladder of success.”

The media mogul made the comments July 31 on her Apple TV+ show “The Oprah Conversation,” which included former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho.

Ms. Winfrey titled the episode “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1,” in honor of the ex-athlete’s YouTube conversations under the same banner.

“I’ve created this for you because in order to stand with us and people that look like me, you have to be educated on issues that pertain to me and fully educated so you can feel the full level of pain so that you can have full understanding,” Mr. Acho said during the episode’s introduction. “I fervently believe that if the White person is your problem, only the White person can be your solution.”

The duo brought in multiple guests to cover topics surrounding racism and unconscious bias.

“As a Black person, White people for the proverbial phrase of White people, they run America. CEOs, Fortune 500 companies, execs, ownership, they run America. Not an individual White person, but collective White people,” Mr. Acho told a guest who was concerned that conversations on race were prone to ignoring or downplaying the existence of poor Whites. “Are there some poor White people in America? Absolutely. How did that happen? I don’t know. I honestly don’t know. Because as a Black person, I understand how we got poor. I totally get that.”

The former NFL player noted that Black Americans become poor by not having access to home ownership or excellent school districts.
