Uranium One or ObamaGate?

An informant who spent years gathering information on the Russian energy and uranium market industry for the FBI, met staff members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight, and House Intelligence Committees on Wednesday. He gave explosive testimony on his years as an undercover informant providing information to the FBI on Russian criminal networks operating in the United States. He also contends in his testimony, and written briefs, to the FBI that Russia attempted to hide its ongoing aid to help sustain Iran’s nuclear industry, at the time the Obama administration approved the sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium mining rights to Russia.

William D. Campbell, an American businessman, provided extensive information on other counterintelligence issues to the FBI for decades and he had also provided information to the CIA on various issues during his time overseas.

“For several years my relationship with the CIA consisted of being debriefed after foreign travel,” Campbell noted in his testimony, which was obtained by this reporter. “Gradually, the relationship evolved into the CIA tasking me to travel to specific countries to obtain specific information. In the 1990’s I developed a working relationship with Kazakhstan and Russia in their nuclear energy industries. When I told the CIA of this development, I was turned over to FBI counterintelligence agents.”

The informant’s attorney, Victoria Toensing partner at the firm DiGenova & Toensing, said the following:

“Mr. Campbell testified for over four hours until he answered every question from three Congressional committees; the Senate Judiciary, House Oversight and House Intelligence committees.

He recounted numerous times that the Russians bragged that the Clintons’ influence in the Obama administration would ensure CIFIUS approval for Uranium One. And he was right.”

The recent revelations over the past year regarding Campbell’s undercover work for the FBI, sparked a Department of Justice investigation into the Obama Administration’s handling of the sale of U.S. uranium mining assets to Russia. On Wednesday, he shared with the committee information he provided to the FBI and has in the past described his frustration with the Obama administration’s failure to stop Russia’s nuclear giant from purchasing 20 percent of American uranium mining assets.

Watergate Part Deux: Still don’t think there is a double standard? Think again!

Many reading this may have no clue as to what “Watergate” was. But because of Watergate, Republican President Richard Nixon had been labeled the biggest crook and most corrupt president in history, until NOW!

President Nixon was been involved in and tried to cover up a break in of the Democrat National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington DC. Nixon was well-known for being paranoid and for trying to undermine anyone he suspected of being an enemy.

Nixon, like President Trump, was being undermined by Democrat operatives who were stealing information and leaking it to the media. Nixon had a group of men known as the “White House Plumbers” who’s only job was stopping White House leaks.

The Plumbers included people like ex-CIA officer E. Howard Hunt and ex-FBI officer G. Gordon Liddy, among others. The Plumbers were eventually called on to perform other tasks for Nixon… like break in to the DNC HQ, wiretap their phones, and copy some campaign strategy documents. The men were caught. In the subsequent months, Nixon’s attempts to cover up his involvement in it is what took him down.

Nixon was pushing his “men” to lie and do whatever it took to make sure he wasn’t connected to any of it. He also went so far as to erase tapes and destroy notes that may have implicated him.

To sum up, in the end, Nixon had to resign for lying, attempting to cover up a crime, and attempting to wiretap the DNC. Sounds like child’s play compared to the Obama Administration!

The sad part is, Nixon had MAJOR wins on both domestic and foreign policy. He ended the draft, founded the EPA, appointed 4 conservative Supreme Court Justices, gave $100 million to start National Cancer research centers, oversaw an aggressive desegregation of southern schools, signed off on Title9 sports on college campus’ (ensuring women and men have fair and equal access), advocated to lower the voting age, allocated more money for the FBI to fight organized crime, and became the FIRST President to give Native Americans the right to self-identify, return sacred tribal lands to them, and stop forced assimilation.

On the foreign front Nixon sent resources to Israel which Prime Minister Golda Meir said saved her country. Nixon stopped a second potential Cuban missile crisis by taking a hardline stance and not allowing Russia to have a submarine base in Cuba. Nixon established new and stronger relationships in the Middle East basically wiping out soviet dominance in the region. Nixon called for the United States to protect its national interests worldwide by enforcing existing treaty commitments with allies. Nixon participated in talks with the Soviet Union to temper the cold war through diplomacy. He was the first President to visit China where he announced his desire to normalize relations. This was a major tension reliever in the world and brought Russian influence to even a lower point.

Nixon’s negative numbers throughout his presidency was mainly due to the Vietnam War and, later, because of Watergate.

With all his accomplishments, it’s too bad this is all he will be remembered for.

In politics of old, when politicians and parties were doing “questionable” things, or as I call them, “illegal” things, they would try to do it on the sly, in the shadows. Now they just do it in our faces, as if to say “what’re you gonna do about it?”

Starting with President Trump’s State of the Union (SOTU) address and now with the Russian investigation debacle, the Democrats are just doing it in the face of America. And they see nothing wrong with it. Mark my words. The Democrats have HANDED the election to Republicans in 2018. Let me explain.

ONE… Shutting down the government over DACA. Americans, by a large margin, blamed Democrats for that because they want Americans taken care of first. YES, polls show they want DACA dealt with, but not to the detriment of American citizens. Most Americans, even in sanctuary cities, are against sanctuary cities. Democrats are more tone-deaf now than they were in the 2016 elections.

TWO… Russia Russia Russia. Polls show Americans are not concerned with Russia Russia Russia. Yes, they want to know if our elections were tampered with, but not to the detriment of running the government or shutting it down. They want MORE jobs, tax laws shored up, and a REAL, long-term budget. They want regular, common-sense issues dealt with. AGAIN, Democrats ignoring the will of the people.

Democrats sat on their hands during the SOTU rather than applaud a 12 year-old boy who raised the money to buy flags and put them up at a veteran’s cemetery all by himself, and encouraged others to do the same. They refused to applaud the child because Trump introduced him.

Democrats brought illegal aliens to the speech but couldn’t be bothered to invite and fill seats with veterans, wouldn’t stand for the National Anthem, couldn’t applaud and support our National Motto “In God We Trust.” All of that is further proof that they are completely out of touch with the American people.

Now back to Watergate…

Nixon wiretapped and tried to cover up the event. He faced impeachment.
Obama, Clinton, Holder, and Lynch did far worse. Democrats defend and deflect.

First… The Obama FBI/DOJ lied to a FISA judge (yes, knowingly omitting information in testimony is considered lying) to obtain a wiretap on then-candidate Trump’s team, the Trump Towers, and others involved in his election committee. And somehow Watergate is worse?

Second… Lying to the FBI, or any law enforcement agency in an investigation, is a felony. Let me clarify:

               18 U.S.C. § 1001 makes it a federal crime for anyone who “in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully … makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation.”

This same statute has been used to convict and imprison Rod Blagojevich, Scooter Libby, Bernard Madoff, Martha Stewart, and Jeffrey Skilling, to name just a few.

Hillary Clinton LIED about her knowledge of the email server and classified information. But according to former FBI Director James Comey, she didn’t do it with malice. This would be great except James Comey LIED to the investigative committee several times, as well as during his testimony. He knew that he and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch had decided NOT to prosecute Mrs. Clinton, even before they had completed their investigation. And I am SURE Mr. Obama exerted no influence into that outcome, right?

If Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor under Trump, goes to jail for lying to the FBI, then Mr. Obama, Mrs. Clinton and others need to follow!

It has come through testimony that the IRS was weaponized against conservative groups. Go ahead. Tell me the Obama Administration knew nothing about it.

Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor under Obama, asked for the unmasking of American citizens due to intelligence information received. I am curious as to when the White House became an intelligence gathering agency? She had no reason or need to have that information.

Obama’s Justice Department secretly obtained phone records of several reporters, editors, and journalists. Over 100 media people’s incoming and outgoing calls were traced. WOW! Are there that many spies in media?

CNN / FOX news’ Bob Beckel stated that he was actually contacted by the White House and TOLD to cool down his criticism of the White House, as was Greta Van Susteren. But Obama was a god. So it was OK! Trump says the media is fake and he is chastised for trying to shut down the media!

Inspector General Gerald Walpin exposed Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson misusing AmeriCorps federal funding to support certain political activities. Good work, right? Not in the Obama Administration! When Walpin wouldn’t back off the investigation, he was GONE. FIRED! Did I mention, Mayor Johnson was a campaign bundler for Obama.

Obama accepted campaign donations from foreign companies and foreign nationals. That’s illegal!

The Obama Administration lied about the specifics of the Benghazi attack!

Obama paid Iran with a huge pile of cash. He went around Congress. That’s AGAINST THE LAW! And he even admitted to paying them in cash because it was illegal to wire the money directly! HELLO?!?!

Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI and in the Congressional hearings. How is she still spending holidays free on the streets?

AND after all this… A dossier filled with fake information, paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, is used to wiretap the Trump team by lying to a judge is fine by the Democrat management and by mainstream media. Nothing to see here. Just move along.

Nixon was a Boy Scout next to the Obama, Clinton, Holder, Lynch Mafia!

Democrats. Proving once again that the ones who scream the loudest are the ones who are most guilty.

American Dreamers in the Age of Diversity

Once, before the Age of Diversity set in, my rural Ohio elementary school teacher divided us students into groups by eye color. Being that she had blue eyes, Mrs. Scott designated all blue-eyed students instantly superior to all brown-eyed students. My eyes are brown.

That day, Mrs. Scott moved all brown-eyed students to the back of the class, and she seated all blue-eyed students at the front. When recess time came, my teacher allowed the blue-eyed students to go to the head of the line and immediately proceed to the playground. She sent brown-eyed students to the back of the line and forced us to use the longer, less-direct back staircase. We saw more of the same awful discriminatory practices at lunch time.

To this day, I remember the feelings of frustration and anger that lesson brought as my blue-eyed classmates gleefully and smugly complied. Most of all, I remember the unfairness the random discrimination brought on. I’m certain Mrs. Scott would be happy to know I received her message loud and clear:  Discrimination based on random physical attributes over which we have absolutely no control is insidious, backward-thinking, and wrong.

Years later, as I filled out my college applications, I encountered random discrimination once again. The essays and applications were designed to show why I deserved to go to College A or how University B could help me reach my career goals. Bonus points were added if I was part of a minority group, single parent household, or extremely poor. I was none of those things. I was a rural white girl with two parents living paycheck-to-paycheck while struggling to stay ahead of the bill collector.

Based on this criteria, I missed out on several scholarship opportunities and loans because my race was too white, my family too whole, and my “class” too “rich” (even though my dad had been collecting unemployment for nearly a year). At the time, I shrugged off these discriminatory admissions policies thinking they were probably-somehow-maybe warranted in some vague societal way. Besides, I realized that, just like Mrs. Scott had taught us, each of these attributes was out of my control. Surely, after a few years of this feel-good discrimination disguised as fairness, people would at least begin to realize that.

Some, like Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, did realize diversity admission practices were unproven “faddish theories.” Justice Thomas wrote that “the University’s professed good intentions cannot excuse its outright racial discrimination.” He even went as far as to refer to them as the same arguments once used by the “slaveholders and segregationists.” He also realized that “discrimination is never benign;” it always hurts one group over another. Like most liberal social policies, the push for diversity started out with well-meaning intentions, but has ended up discriminating against other groups in its attempt at imagined “fairness” and “reparation.” We know that for the Left, the ends justify the means, so they say what’s a little random discrimination against one group if it ends a lot of other discrimination against another group? The answer is, a lot, if you’re in any of those groups. Instead, shouldn’t the social justice warriors work to end all discrimination?

Decades later, I spent the better part of a month helping my own kids fill out those now “woke” college scholarship essays and applications. Have things changed on the diversity front? Absolutely. Today, the college application process is a practical exercise in political correctness, social justice, and very little else. It seems, unless you are a member of the pre-approved, struggling, but unquestioningly virtuous “underserved populations” of the diversity rainbow, there isn’t much help out there for college.

Now before the knee-jerk cries of “racism!” begin, let me point out that I’m simply following the Left’s own rules and pretzel logic. I didn’t make up these PC terms, the Left did. I didn’t write these applications or essay prompts, the Left did. And trust me, like my sixth grade blue-eyed classmates, I can almost feel the SJWs reading this and smugly smirking that I deserve it.

It all came down to answers about how “your experiences in school, and/or your family background shaped your views and deeds on equity, inclusion, and diversity.” It did not matter much that my kid was in the top 10% of his class at a highly-competitive high school while carrying a heavy load of AP classes and extracurricular activities. No, nothing mattered as much as how PC and SJW “woke” he was. Ironically, it seems today’s Social Justice Warriors have managed to twist “justice” into the very exclusionary practices they claim to despise. It’s as if “diversity is dynamic and inclusive” as long as one is not also melanin-challenged, straight, principled, or a natural-born American.

With no stated goals or end in sight, diversity for diversity’s sake is nothing special. In truth, we are all diverse in our talents and abilities. Why then does an arbitrary melanin count matter more than a high GPA or an active extracurricular life? After decade upon decade of SJW preening, when will enough be enough? When will our supposed debt be paid? In other words, at what point will we all be “woke AF”? When will talents, abilities, and character matter more than melanin count, genitalia, or immigration status? When will the “Office of Diversity and Inclusion” truly include everyone?

When I sit down to help my grandchildren fill out their college applications, I wonder if I will encounter the same random discrimination I’ve encountered twice before in my lifetime? I hope not. As President Trump recently pointed out, “Americans are dreamers too.” We all deserve to dream and be judged not by random characteristics, but by merit. Maybe someday Mrs. Scott’s lesson will finally be universally learned and we can each be judged by our accomplishments and character.

Episcopal diocese will no longer be using masculine pronouns! Why!

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Episcopal church in the Diocese of Washington, D.C., passed a resolution last week to stop using masculine pronouns for God in future updates to its Book of Common Prayer.

The resolution to stop using “gendered language for God” was passed quickly by delegates to the Diocese’s 123rd Convention.

“If revision of the Book of Common Prayer is authorized, to utilize expansive language for God from the rich sources of feminine, masculine, and non-binary imagery for God found in Scripture and tradition and, when possible, to avoid the use of gendered pronouns for God,” the resolution stated.

“Over the centuries our language and our understanding of God has continued to change and adapt,” the drafters of the resolution stated. The drafters said that referring to God using masculine pronouns is to “limit our understanding of God.”

“By expanding our language for God, we will expand our image of God and the nature of God,” they stated.

But Clergy delegate The Rev. Linda R. Calkins from St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Laytonsville, Maryland,  challenged the delegates to go further.

Calkins read from Genesis Chapter 17, in which God tells Abraham “I am El Shaddai.” She said that if Episcopalians “are going to be true to what El Shaddai means, it means God with breasts.”

“Having studied much feminist theology in my masters’ degrees, I wrote a thesis on liberation and freedom and non-equality in feminist theology and existential counseling,” Calkins told the delegates, as reported by The Institute On Religion & Democracy.

“And I am still waiting for the Episcopal Church to come to the place where all people feel that they can speak God’s name. Many, many women that I have spoken with over my past almost 20 years in ordained ministry have felt that they could not be a part of any church because of the male image of God that is systemic and that is sustained throughout our liturgies. Many of us are waiting and need to hear God in our language, in our words and in our pronouns,” she added.

Its Welfare NOT Slavery that decimated the Black community!

“The undeniable truth is that neither slavery nor Jim Crow nor the harshest racism has decimated the black family the way the welfare state has,” said George Mason professor Walter Williams in his column for The Richmond Times-Dispatch.

There is little evidence to support the idea that slavery, racial discrimination and poverty caused the problems of today’s black Americans, the economics professor wrote.

The number one problem is the weak family structure:

In 1960, just 22 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families.

Fifty years later, more than 70 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families.

According to the 1938 Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences, that year 11 percent of black children were born to unwed mothers. Today about 75 percent of black children are born to unwed mothers. That can’t be a legacy of slavery, it can’t be some delayed reaction.

As Professor Williams said, the bottom line is that the black family was stronger the first 100 years after slavery than during what will be the second 100 years.

All blacks were poor originally but now 30 percent are poor. Two-parent black families are rarely poor.

Only 8 percent of black married-couple families live in poverty. Among black families in which both the husband and wife work full time, the poverty rate is under 5 percent. Poverty in black families headed by single women is 37 percent.

It’s the welfare state that decimated the black family, he concludes.

Tooo Many African Blacks on Campus – So Says Black Students?

ITHACA, N.Y. – A group of black students want Cornell University to focus more on recruiting blacks from the United States, rather than African or Caribbean students, among many other demands.

“Black Students United” – which represents people of the “African diaspora” – penned a letter to university administration recently in response to allegations that a white student from the Psi Upsilon fraternity severely beat a black student from the Kappa Sigma fraternity in mid August.

Cornell closed down the Psi Upsilon fraternity as it works to “develop and implement steps to be a more equitable, inclusive and welcoming university,” according to The Washington Post.

John Greenwood, the 19-year-old student accused of the beating, faces a third-degree assault charge and possible hate crimes. Greenwood apologized for using “abhorrent language” during the dispute, but his attorney has maintained that Greenwood was “in no way involved in any physical altercation of any kind,” according to The Cornell Daily Sun.

Black Students United want more to be done, and they’re using the unfortunate incident to pressure school officials into a list of 12 demands – at least some of which target other black students.

The demands are prefaced with a diatribe on Cornell’s inherently white supremacist system that allegedly perpetuates a daily assault of racism against black students on campus.

“We attend a university that’s obsessed with the optics of our black and brown faces but is indifferent to the justice we week. This is not an indictment of white people; this is an indictment of a system that perpetuates white supremacy and shelters our peers under the warm blanket of white privilege – all the while, we are left to freeze in our frigid reality of racist epithets, essentialist curriculum, and apathetic governance,” the letter read.

“In post-racial America, our classmates call us niggers from their pickup trucks in broad daylight. In post-racial America, we are berated by airborne bottles on our own campus. In post-racial America, we are told we have a chip on our shoulder. We are called everything but our name. Above all else, in post-racial America we are bombarded by the deafening silence that allows the centuries-old hum of white supremacy to grow louder,” it continued. “Silence is violence.”

New Mexico wants to force College on students!

State lawmakers in New Mexico recently proposed a bill that would force high school students to apply for college unless they provide the government with alternative post-graduation plan.

House Bill 23, sponsored by Republican state representative Nate Gentry and Democratic state senator Daniel Ivey-Soto, would require high school juniors to “file an application with a college or show that the student has committed to an internship or apprenticeship or military service.”

Additionally, the bill mandates that local school boards must ensure that all students are “reasonably informed” about “the financial benefits of graduating a college and the availability of financial aid.”

“At the end of grades eight through eleven, each student shall prepare an interim next-step plan that sets forth the coursework for the grades remaining until high school graduation,” the bill specifies, offering exemptions only for students who can demonstrate that they are preparing to enter the military or commit to an internship or apprenticeship.

New Mexico already requires high school students to submit a “next-step plan” outlining the coursework they plan to pursue in order to fulfill the state’s graduation requirements, but the mandatory college application would be a new and unique addition.

According to USA Today, the proposal is a response to the state’s decline in college enrollment, which dropped 14 percent between 2010 and 2016, with Gentry predicting that requiring students to file applications—which cost $25 at the University of New Mexico—will induce more of them to actually attend college.

Citing New Mexico’s 6.5 percent unemployment rate, the sponsors hope that cultivating a better-educated workforce will attract new businesses to the state.

“There’s a reason we call graduation commencement because it’s the beginning of their future.” Ivey-Soto told the publication. “Let’s take that seriously.”

Im always amazed that the left thinks they have to tell you and then force you to do what they think is best for…

Do they really beleive we are that stupid?

College says ICE enforcement is federal overreach?

border patrol vehical in the field.

The editorial board of the Cornell University student newspaper recently decried the arrest of an illegal immigrant by U.S. Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) as “federal overreach.”

“ICE cannot come into our city, snatch our community members off the street in broad daylight and without informing local authorities, and then refuse to divulge any further information, including the identity of the man arrested,” The Cornell Daily Sun declares, applauding Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick for his “vociferous defense of Ithaca’s sanctuary status.”

However, in his defense of sanctuary cities, Myricks himself acknowledges that even if ICE agents are not welcome in Ithaca, “we can’t stop them.”

As a result, The Daily Sun’s editors call on Ithaca’s federal representatives to “immediately demand answers from ICE regarding their latest intrusion into New York State.”

The editorial concludes by stating that “if President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and DHS Secretary Nielsen believe that their heavy-handed tactics will cow sanctuary cities like Ithaca into submission, they are sadly mistaken.”

Just a few days prior, The Daily Sun published another editorial outlining ways for Ithaca to “maintain its resolve against the increasingly brazen ICE agency,” saying Cornell “can and should do more” to assist the city in enforcing its sanctuary status.

“Cornell Law should reinvigorate its Legal Aid clinic to provide services for more Ithaca residents and the Cornell student body should continue to pressure leaders at all levels of government to speak out against the Trump administration’s heartless immigration policies,” the editorial suggested.

Both editorials were written in response to ICE arresting several illegal immigrants across western New York, including three in Ithaca. ICE reported in a press release that half of those arrested during the sweep had prior criminal convictions, while four others were fugitives, and another six had re-entered the country illegally after being deported.

Did the FBI and DOJ Officials Break the Law?

There can be no question, at this point, that certain higher ups in the FBI and the DOJ did not want Hillary to be indicted and did not want Donald Trump to become President.  Those efforts were not entirely independent of each other.

Below is a timeline of events – abbreviated though it is – that makes it rather plain that the FBI and DOJ were not investigating potential crimes objectively.

Indeed, they were committing crimes during the process in aid of their preferred outcomes.

1.  2007. Hillary Clinton wanted to be President.  Hillary’s ambitions to be president started long ago.  She ran for President in the 2008 cycle.  In 2009, after losing to Obama, Hillary became Obama’s Secretary of State.  She stayed in that post until 2013.

2. March 2015The Hillary email scandal breaks. Hillary was using an unapproved/unsecured server and devices to communicate.  She was using a private email account.  Classified information was being sent through that email, server and devices – including when Hillary was abroad.

All of that is illegal.  As 2015 unfolds, it becomes clear to the FBI and the DOJ that President Barack Obama was communicating with Hillary using her non-state department email.  Obama was using an email and a name that masked who he was.

That had to be known to authorities long before March of 2015 given that it occurred prior to 2013.

As Andrew McCarthy points out in his recent article, there was no chance that the DOJ was going to indict Hillary because that would have required implicating President Obama.  That was never going to happen.  From thereafter, DOJ officials acted with that understanding, however illegal, in mind.

3.  June 2015. Donald Trump announces his Presidential run.

4.  March 2016. Trump has enough delegates to claim the nomination.

5.  April 10, 2016. Obama makes clear he does not want Hillary indicted.  Obama, on TV, indicates Hillary did not intend to harm national security.  However, intent is not an element of the crime she committed.  At the time of that statement – made by a sitting President and in plain view of the Nation and more importantly his FBI/DOJ appointments – many witnesses had yet to be interviewed, including Hillary

Natalie Wood’s death a murder?

Nearly 40 years after Hollywood actress Natalie Wood died at age 43, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s official said her fatal drowning is now being investigated as a “suspicious death” as new witnesses have emerged.

Following Thursday’s bombshell “48 Hours” report that husband Robert Wagner was a “person of interest,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said new witnesses interviewed since the case was reopened in 2011 have given statements that “portray a new sequence of events on the boat that night.”

Wood, the Oscar-nominated actress who starred in “Miracle on 34th Street,” “West Side Story” and “Rebel Without a Cause,” was on a yacht with Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and the boat captain on Thanksgiving weekend in 1981. After a night of drinking, her body was found floating in the waters off Southern California’s Catalina Island.

While investigators initially ruled it an accident, the case was reopened to see whether Wagner or anyone else possibly played a role after the boat’s captain said he heard the couple arguing the night of her disappearance. The coroner’s office amended Wood’s death certificate the next year to include “drowning and other undetermined factors.”

A rep for Wagner, now 87, declined to comment.

According to Nishida, one of the witnesses described hearing yelling and crashing sounds coming from the couple’s stateroom. Soon after that, other witnesses claimed they heard a man and woman arguing on the back of the boat. They believe the voices belonged to Wood and Wagner, added Nishida.

While the sheriff’s department said Wagner is considered a person of interest, Nishida noted there isn’t enough evidence “to make an arrest at this moment.”

The police statement comes after CBS News aired an interview with Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. John Corina, who said he doesn’t believe Wagner has told the whole story about what happened that fateful night.

Corina told “48 Hours” the new witnesses are “very credible.”

“They have no reason to lie,” he insisted.

Comey thinks he has integrity!

Former FBI Director James Comey lashed out at unnamed “weasels and liars” on social media late Thursday, hours before President Trump was expected to declassify a controversial memo about purported surveillance abuses over the objections of Democrats.

“All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would,” Comey wrote on Twitter. “But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up.

All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.

“Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy,” Comey added, a reference to the Wisconsin senator who claimed high-ranking government officials were Soviet spies in the 1950s.

Comey appeared to be referencing an FBI statement released Wednesday that objected to the release of the memo, authored by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif. That statement said the FBI had “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

Sources told Fox News Thursday that the version of the memo Trump plans to declassify contains “technical edits” made at the FBI’s request. The sources said the edited version was shown to five FBI officials at the White House on Tuesday afternoon and the officials were satisfied that the edits addressed concerns they had about an earlier version of the memo that was reviewed on Monday.

The memo purportedly is critical of the FBI’s use of surveillance during the 2016 presidential campaign, particularly in the initial stages of its investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and Trump’s campaign.

University hs a class on touching yourself!

The Undergraduate Student Government of Arizona State University, Tempe is hosting a workshop on getting “the pleasure you want and deserve” from masturbation.

According to the event description page posted on Facebook, the workshop will host an expert to discuss masturbation on February 13, and address ways in which students can “[get] in touch” with themselves through sexual self-gratification.

“Getting in touch with yourself by touching yourself,” the event description reads. “Join pleasure professional Natalie Treacy for a shame-free, pleasure focused discussion about masturbation and self exploration to get the pleasure you want and deserve.”

While images obtained by Campus Reform appear to suggest that the event was originally titled “Go F*ck Yourself,” the workshop’s currently title was apparently changed to a less provocative “Go Love Yourself.”

The images of the original event description also appeared to link the lecture with “O.School,” an organization that strives to create “intimate spaces to talk about sex and pleasure online” by hosting live streams and lectures “to help you overcome shame, heal from trauma, and develop skills to communicate and set boundaries in the pursuit of your sexual pleasure.”

In November 2017, the Undergraduate Student Government also hosted two events featuring guests from O.School, including a talk on “the sex ed you deserve” and communication in intimate relationships.

While the updated version of the slated workshop still retains the same slogan, the event is no longer directly linked to the sex ed group that was involved in previous campus projects.

According to the Undergraduate Student Government website, the organization is committed to backing “Arizona State University’s Culture of Intimacy” campaign intended to “change the climate around healthy sexuality.”

“By bridging the gap between sexual assault and other topics such as gender identity, birth control, or STI prevention and testing, we have the power to positively affect intimacy on our campus,” the organization explains, also noting that its objective is to create a “new director position to focus on issues of intimacy and healthy relationships.”

Campus Reform reached out to the Undergraduate Student Government for comment on the matter, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Fat Identifying people attend a positive dinner!

Two obese women leaping together in the gym while looking at the camera

Princeton University’s health center will soon host a “Fat Positive Dinner” for students who are “fat identified” to discuss their experiences.

According to an online description for the February event, the dinner will be hosted by Health Promotion and Prevention Services (a division of the school’s University Health Services) in conjunction with the Women’s Center.

“This space is intended for fat identified people to share their experiences as a fat person at Princeton in an accepting and supportive environment,” a newsletter put out by the Women’s Center states.

Additionally, participants will “discuss fat positive programming ideas for the spring semester,” with the event description noting that “dinner will be served.”

Meanwhile, the University Health Services website emphasizes the importance of “exercise and fitness” as an important part of a “healthy life.”

“Although Princeton students usually have very busy schedules, it is essential that you make time for exercise in order to lead a healthy life,” the website states.

Campus Reform reached out to the university for comment, and is currently awaiting a response.

 

The UNINFORMED slam Trump!

It should come as no surprise that Hollywood was not happy with President Trump’s first State of the Union address.

Many self-proclaimed activists from Hollywood took to social media to offer their critique of Trump’s speech. While some stars did watch Trump’s address, others said they refused to tune in but still offered their criticism.

I already know the state of the union-ain’t good. Was pretty damn good about a year and a half ago.

Can’t even watch this vile, deceitful fraud and his bizarre cult of self-interested sycophants.

I tried. I listened but the amount of BS and stunts and questions raised that will never be answered made me throw my remote and now I am listening to Tom Petty and am a better American.

I’m not watching some frothing orange gorilla read off a teleprompter. I’ve got better things to do, like alphabetize my spice cabinet.

Many of Trump’s vocal Hollywood critics participated in a “People’s State of the Union” counter-event in New York City on Monday.

Outspoken Trump critic and actor Mark Ruffalo hosted the program which focused on the anti-Trump “Resistance” movement, immigration issues and attacking the “ugly underbelly” of Americans who voted for Trump.

The three-hour event was sponsored by various left-wing organizations including Planned Parenthood and MoveOn.org and organizers of the Women’s March.

Trump bringing jobs to the US!

Campbells Soup
Campbells Soup

Campbell Soup Company announced that it would close its Toronto, Canada, plant and shift production to three U.S. factories.
The company revealed Wednesday that the Toronto facility, which first opened in 1931, would be closed in several phases over 18 months before moving production to facilities in Maxton, North Carolina; Paris, Texas; and Napolean, Ohio.

The move will result in the loss of 380 Canadian jobs, but it is unclear how many new jobs will be created in the U.S. A company spokesman told Bloomberg that existing employees would most likely handle the increased soup volume.

Mark Alexander, the president of Campbell’s parent company, Americas Simple Meals and Beverages, said the decision to close was “a difficult one” but ultimately “the best course of action” for the company.

“We are operating in an increasingly challenging environment as our industry’s consumer and retail landscapes continue to change dramatically,” he said in a statement.

Ana Dominguez, president of Campbell’s Canadian operations, said the company decided to close its Toronto plant in part because of overproduction—meaning there is an increase in the supply of soup but not enough demand from consumers.

“Simply put, we are in a situation where we can produce a lot more soup than we can sell,” she told the Toronto Star in an interview.

Dominguez added that the Toronto facility is the oldest and smallest of Campbell’s production facilities in Canada.

CANADA: Dont send us your illegals!

In a private dining room at Zov’s restaurant in Tustin, a Canadian envoy made his pitch to about a dozen immigration attorneys and immigrant rights leaders.

Pablo Rodriguez, a member of Parliament, leaned over from his seat in the middle of the table and asked everyone to spread the word: Please do not cross into Canada illegally.

“Get the facts and make a decision based on the right facts, before leaving your jobs and taking your children out of school and going up there hoping to stay there forever,” Rodriguez said. “Because if you don’t qualify … you will be returned and in this case not to the United States. You will have lost your status and would be returned to your country of origin.”

Worried that anti-immigrant rhetoric and decisions from the Trump administration could drive more people across its border, the Canadian government is trying to nip that in the bud.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dispatched Rodriguez to California.

The whip for the majority Liberal Party in Parliament, Rodriguez arrived in the U.S. a few days after President Trump announced his decision to end temporary protected status of an estimated 200,000 Salvadorans in the country.

His message was not that different from immigration hardliners in the U.S. But it was delivered with a nicer Canadian soft sell.

Rodriguez was a young boy when he arrived in Canada as a political refugee from Argentina. He said he can empathize with those looking north.

He said that Canada is “an open country” and a nation of immigrants. But, he stressed, immigrating to the country needs to be done legally.

“You can’t just come to Canada and cross the border and stay there the rest of your life,” he said. “We want to avoid a humanitarian crisis along the border.”

The Canadian government, Rodriguez said, wants to avoid a repeat of what happened last summer when thousands of Haitians crossed Canada’s southern border “irregularly” after losing temporary protected status in the U.S.

The influx created a massive backlog of refugee claimants.

Dems say the US is like 1934 Germany! REALLY?

A top Democrat compared President Donald Trump’s time in the White House to the early days of the Nazi era in Germany, in an interview with CNN.

Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina said America is encountering “incredibly troubling” times.

Clyburn, who represents much of the state’s I-95 corridor, said today’s America is like “what was going on in Germany around 1934.”

“[Like] right after the 1932 elections when Adolf Hitler was elected chancellor,” Clyburn said.

Clyburn said that Trump has similarly sought to “discredit the media [and] disrupt the judicial system.”

He said that as a former history teacher, he knows that Americans “better get a handle on things.”

Host Don Lemon challenged Clyburn’s comparison, warning him that it was quite “stark” and that he would elicit criticism.

Clyburn then appeared to adjust his remarks, saying that “this president would be [Italian authoritarian Benito] Mussolini and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin would be Hitler.”

Clyburn, however is still planning on attending the State of the Union address, according to the Charleston Post & Courier.

 

007 a Rapist?

JAMES BOND films have been around for 55 years and millennials have claimed the older ones starring Sir Sean Connery and Sir Roger Moore are offensive due to “sexism”, “racism” and 007 being a “rapist”.

He’s a womanising assassin from an age gone by, but is James Bond offensive?

In her debut as M in 1995’s Goldeneye, Judi Dench said to Pierce Brosnan’s 007: “I think you’re a sexist, misogynist dinosaur.

“A relic of the Cold War, whose boyish charms, though lost on me, obviously appealed to that young girl I sent out to evaluate you.”

Now millennials, who recently voiced their offence at 1990s sitcom Friends, have taken to Twitter again to criticize older Bond movies.

One wrote: “Watching old James Bond movies and realised: Dude was low key a rapist.”

Another said: “In the early films, James Bond was a full on rapist! #goldfinger.”

While one tweet read: “Watching old school Sean Connery James Bond movies. He’s basically a rapist who occasionally murders a Russian person.”

But it’s not just the character of 007 millennials have a problem with, it’s supporting roles and the general tone of the movies too.

One said: “Watching The Man With The Golden Gun and good lordddd the fact that they thought the hyper-racist sheriff character was a fun/wacky presence to bring back speaks volumes.”

A Twitter user added: “If the millennials think Friends is sexist they should watch James Bond [movie] A View to Kill they will go nuts.”

In contrast a new book by a University Professor claims that James Bond wasn’t sexist, but a “stylish commando.”

In The World of James Bond historian Jeremy Black, Professor at University of Exeter said: “Bond was a very modern man for the 1950s. This was the pre-pill age, but he admires women who offer sex, femininity and masculinity. His women are independent and driven.

Practicing Yoga leads to White Supremacy!

White people who do a downward-facing dog are contributing to a “system of power, privilege, and oppression,” according to a Michigan State University professor.

Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State, claims in an articleshe recently co-authored that Americans who practice yoga are contributing to white supremacy and promote the “yoga industrial complex.”

White Americans should learn yoga’s history, acknowledge the cultural appropriation they engage in and possibly reduce the cost of yoga classes for poor people, a group that often includes people of color and “recent immigrants, such as Indian women to whom this practice rightfully belongs,” Gandhi argued.

She co-authored the piece titled “Yoga and the Roots of Cultural Appropriation,” with Lillie Wolff, a self-described “anti-racist white Jewish organizer, facilitator, and healer,” who has called for “decolonizing” yoga, the College Fix reported.

The two argued “the explosion of yoga studios, yoga video, apps, yoga pants, and other yoga swag over the last two decades is evidence” of the “(mis)appropriation of yoga” that “is part of systemic racism” built on “the labor of black people and people of the global south.”

“We would argue one of the goals of white supremacy is to buffer white people from the pain that comes from the process of exchanging cultural grounding for the unearned power and privilege of whiteness,” they wrote. “…this modern-day trend of cultural appropriation of yoga is a continuation of white supremacy and colonialism, maintaining the pattern of white people consuming the stuff of culture that is convenient and portable, while ignoring the well-being and liberation of Indian people.”

Gandhi and the Religious Studies Department at MSU did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Gandhi said few white people “make the connection between their attraction to yoga and the cultural loss their ancestors and relatives experienced when they bought into white dominant culture in order to access resources,” Gandhi wrote.

But white people who twist their bodies in different yoga positions can do something about it, according to Gandhi.

“Friends” show socially insensitive!

Millennials watching Friends on Netflix have expressed reservations about the popular sitcom’s storylines, describing it as transphobic, homophobic and sexist.

While the show ran for more than 10 years until 2004, it arrived on Netflix at the end of last year in the UK.

The series, starring Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, remains one of the most popular shows in the US.

However, some millennials found LGBT plot points left them feeling “uncomfortable” – for example when Chandler was paranoid about being perceived as a gay man or made mean-spirited jokes about his cross-dressing dad.

Sexism seeps in when Rachel hires a nanny for her daughter Emma, but Emma’s father Ross can’t handle the fact that the nanny is a man. Ross takes it one step further to being homophobic by asking if he’s gay.

Not to mention Monica (played by Courtney Cox) was never allowed to forget she was once overweight – there’s even an episode where Joey Tribbiani (played by LeBlanc) yells, “Some girl ate Monica!”

New audiences claimed that Rachel would have been fired for sexual harassment because she hires an assistant who isn’t qualified for the position because she wants to date him.

There’s also the controversial relationship between Monica and her father’s best friend who’s 20 years older than her, but it was perceived as even more uncomfortable in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and #MeToo stories.

The sitcom has also received criticism for its lack of diversity – there were only two notable non-white characters on the show: Ross’ girlfriend Julie and Dr Charlie Wheeler.

Friends still may be of people’s favorite series, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t problematic in 2018.

SO these Hollywood elites haven’t figured out yet that we just DONT CARE what they think. They lie for a living! They trick you into believing they are someone they arent!
