Let’s Hope Barr and Durham don’t play Politics

from Zero Hedge:

Ex-Colleagues See Durham Dropping Bombshells Before Labor Day

While much speculation inside the Beltway says U.S. Attorney John Durham will punt the results of his so-called Spygate investigation past the election to avoid charges of political interference, sources who have worked with Durham on past public corruption cases doubt he’ll bend to political pressure — and they expect him to drop bombshells before Labor Day.

Durham’s boss, Attorney General Bill Barr, also pushed back on the notion his hand-picked investigator would defer action. Under Democratic questioning on Capitol Hill last week, he refused to rule out a pre-election release.

AG William Barr was asked, “Under oath, do you commit to not releasing any report by Mr. Durham before the November election?” His reply: “No.’

“No,” the attorney general curtly replied. read more

Safety at All Cost Trumps the Bill of Rights Again

What’s the difference between the Communist Chinese dragging people out of their homes for “safety” sake, and today’s America?

Answer: Location – that’s all. One is forced to leave their home, the other is forced to stay put.

Now what’s the difference between the Communist Chinese welding peoples’ doors shut so they can’t escape, and demanding American citizens not leave their home under penalty of the new police State? Answer: Very little.

Is this what we’ve so rapidly devolved into?

Kentucky Couple Forced To Wear Ankle Bracelets After Refusing Self-Isolation Order

A Kentucky couple can’t travel more than 200 feet from home after authorities slapped a pair of ankle bracelets on them following an argument over COVID-19.

Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for the virus last weekend despite having no symptoms. Following her test, the health department contacted her and asked that she sign documents agreeing to self-quarantine unless she calls the health department first. Linscott refused to sign the form, the Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order. read more

So You Want to Understand the Constitution

from Zero Hedge:

If You Want To Understand The Constitution, Don’t Ask A Lawyer

Most Americans say the Constitution is important. Most Americans say it’s crucial for the government to stay within its constitutional bounds. But what exactly are the constitutional limits on federal power? How do we know?

Well, whatever you do, don’t ask a lawyer. Most of them know very little about the Constitution.

I can already hear you protesting. Lawyers know a lot about the Constitution. They learn constitutional law, for goodness sake!

But read closely what I wrote. I didn’t say they don’t know a lot about constitutional law. I said they typically don’t know a lot about the Constitution. There’s a huge difference. read more

Mitch May the Votes After All

from Zero Hedge:

Is It Over? GOP Reportedly Has Votes To Block Witnesses In Early End To Impeachment

Hours after Democratic Senator Joe Manchin said Hunter Biden would be a “relevant witness” in President Trump’s impeachment trial, Senate Republicans seem to think there aren’t enough votes to call witnesses following a morning meeting between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) which lasted approximately 30 minutes.

According to The Hill, the meeting “was seen as a sign by several senators that Democrats will fail to convince four Republicans to join them in calling for witnesses. Without a vote to hear from witnesses, the trial could end as soon as Friday.” read more

The Next Victim of the Opioid Crisis – Home Depot

Theft has been a major issue involved in the ever-growing opioid crisis in America. People are legally prescribed opioid painkillers by their physicians, and find, very often, that they become addicted.

Well, they often can’t return to their doctor for another prescription, so are they forced to hit the streets in search of their next fix. However, the drugs aren’t free, and many who become dependent quickly realize they can’t afford to keep using. But the drug has taken hold and many cannot stop.

So they begin to sell their own possessions – until they run out. Then the now addicts turn to crime – to theft. And many times, the brick and mortar retail store pays the price of that theft.

“Happening Everywhere In Retail” – Home Depot Links Surge In Thefts To Opioid Crisis

The opioid crisis is evolving and is now becoming a burden on retailers, as addicts race to brick and mortar stores, hoping to steal merchandise, and if successful, sell it on the street or pawn it for cash to pay for their next fix.

An absolutely shocking account of this has come from Home Depot executives, who warn that the nation’s out of control opioid crisis has sparked a massive surge in thefts in stores across the country. read more

Just how many are Involved in this Anti-Trump Campaign?

After all this, if not one, but a whole bunch of democrats don’t go to prison over the attempted treasonous overthrow of a branch of the government, there is no justice in the world. Simply allowing anyone involved to get off with suffering the maximum punishment allowed under the law is a miscarriage of justice. This was/is an attempted coup of monumental proportions!

Brennan’s Spy? New Theories Emerge About Trump-Ukraine Whistleblower

As Democrats seek to impeach President Trump over the “high crime” of asking Ukraine to investigate his political opponents, theories have emerged suggesting the whole thing is a ‘six ways from Sunday‘ operation by Intelligence Community holdovers and Establishment Democrats to remove a sitting President who started flying too close to the sun.

After Trump asked his Ukrainian counterpart on July 25 to investigate pro-Clinton Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 US election, and allegations of corruption against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, a CIA officer who worked with the ‘DNC meddler’ and Joe Biden filed a second-hand whistleblower complaint on a recently altered form (which previously allowed only first-hand information). read more

To the Left: As You Sow – So Shall You Reap

Beware The Sound Of Shoes Dropping In The Night

It was interesting to watch the Cable News divas go incandescent under the glare of their own gaslight late yesterday when they received the unpleasant news that the Barr & Durham “review” of RussiaGate had been officially upgraded to a “criminal investigation.”

Rachel Maddow’s trademark pouty-face got a workout as she strained to imagine “…what the thing is that Durham might be looking into.” Yes, that’s a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, all right… with a sputtering fuse sticking out of it. Welcome to the Wile E. Coyote Lookalike Club, Rache. You’ll have a lot of competition when the Sunday morning news-chat shows rev up. read more

Pretty Much Everything is Racist at San Diego City College

from Zero Hedge:

“Make America Great Again” Listed On Cali College’s “White Supremacy” Pyramid

San Diego City College hosted a white supremacist seminar in early October, distributing flyers claiming that cultural appropriation, “racist mascots,” and “Make America Great Again” are instances of white supremacy.

The event, “Confronting White Supremacy through the Arts” was hosted by co-directors of the World Cultures program at SDCC, professors Michelle Chan and Maria-Jose Zeledon-Perez.

“Come join us in confronting White Supremacy through students’ performances,” read a promotional flyer for the event, photographed by Campus Reform. “Prior to the performances, guest speakers will set the stage and contextualize what white supremacy is, its areas of activity, and how rampant it is in our society, curriculum, mindsets, and media.” read more

US Military Tests ICBM Hours After Beijing Parades Missiles Through Tiananmen Square

Mere hours after the latest missile test by North Korea and Beijing’s parading of its ICBM arsenal through Tiananmen Square during the 70th anniversary celebration of Communist Party rule, the US military decided to carry out a missile test of its own on Wednesday, testing an unarmed Minuteman III ICBM.

The Minuteman was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:13 am Pacific Time. The missile, which was equipped with a ‘reentry vehicle’, traveled 6,750 kilometers across the Pacific Ocean before touching down on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command.

A photo of the test shows the missile in a brilliant purple hue.
