John Durham Needs To Investigate Why The Info Generating The Mueller Probe Is All Linked To Hillary Clinton
[The Federalist] Comey never used intelligence derived from U.S. sources to initiate or justify probes into Trump’s campaign. All the information Comey, Clapper, and Brennan used to justify investigating Trump was data linked to Clinton or Democrats in some manner. During a Fox News interview with Bill Hemmer, Barr explained that initiating a counterintelligence probe from the Steele dossier was "very unusual":
All roads lead to Clinton and are systematically obstructed by the Intelligence Community. Could there possibly be a connection ?

Dershowitz: Mueller Just Put His Elbow On The Scale And Revealed His Partisan Bias
[Hot Air] Alan Dershowitz had a strong reaction to Mueller’s statement earlier today. Dershowitz wrote a piece for the Hill saying that prior to today he didn’t believe Mueller has a horse in this race. But after his statement today, Dershowitz believes he was wrong. He says Mueller effective put his elbow on the scales of justice today:
The statement by special counsel Robert Mueller in a Wednesday press conference that "if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said that" is worse than the statement made by then FBI Director James Comey regarding Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign...

Comey was universally criticized for going beyond his responsibility to state whether there was sufficient evidence to indict Clinton. Mueller, however, did even more. He went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Democrats in Congress who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump. By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings. Obstruction of justice is a "high crime and misdemeanor" which, under the Constitution, authorizes impeachment and removal of the president.

Until today, I have defended Mueller against the accusations that he is a partisan. I did not believe that he personally favored either the Democrats or the Republicans, or had a point of view on whether President Trump should be impeached. But I have now changed my mind. By putting his thumb, indeed his elbow, on the scale of justice in favor of impeachment based on obstruction of justice, Mueller has revealed his partisan bias.

In some ways, Dershowitz isn’t saying anything that different from what Judge Napolitano said earlier today. Napolitano also thought that Mueller’s statement was a message to Democrats in Congress that he would have indicted Trump if he could have. And as Ed noted, that’s exactly how several Democrats interpreted it. All Dershowitz is adding is that Mueller’s effort to give Democrats a push looks pretty partisan.

#1  Actually, Mueller's investigatory team selection revealed his "partisan bias", not to mention is past political associations.

#2  The problem Dershowitz, and so many like him, has is the inability to analyse the fact that the meta-party, aka Deep State, is the source of his partisanship.

It's not Democrats that he's trying to support it is the insiders, like himself, that has Mueller's loyalty. Trump's cardinal sin is not to belong to that party.

#4  So investigate Mueller for unlawful prosecution.

Alan Dershowitz: Boston Remembers Mueller Protected Whitey Bulger. "He's the guy who kept four innocent people in prison for many years in order to protect the cover of Whitey Bulger as an FBI informer. Those of us in Boston don't have such a high regard for Mueller because we remember this story. The government had to pay out tens of millions of dollars because Whitey Bulger, a notorious mass murderer, became a government informer against the mafia.

#5  he would have indicted Trump if he could have

And that was stated on what page of the 447 page Volume 2? Did he lead off the report with the statement, "I can't indite a sitting president, however, here are the crimes the Congress should consider"? No? He's making a new conclusion?

How convenient.

#6  Put him under oath and make him repeat it. Or better yet, recall him to active duty as a Marine and then force him to testify, so when you charge him with lying, it's under the USMCJ, not the regular civilian laws. Make sure nobody above the rank of captain is on his jury. Or if he was enlisted, make sure it's all sergeants.

The murder of history
[Dhaka Tribune] The rule of General Ziaur Rahman came to a violent end at the Chittagong Circuit House on May 30, 1981.

A decade earlier, Major Zia’s moment of glory came on the evening of March 27, 1971.

In the name of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, he proclaimed to the world that the people of Bangladesh were a free nation, that to dub the majority population of Pakistain as secessionists was "a cruel joke" which ought to "befool none," that indeed the world’s powerful nations should be according recognition to a nation struggling to be born out of calamitous darkness.

Biden proves yet again he's an idiot, this time on China
[American Thinker] Recently, Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden said, "China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man...they can't even figure out how to deal with the fact that they have this great division between the China Sea and the mountains in the east, I mean in the west." Biden continued, "They can't figure out how they're going to deal with the corruption that exists within the system. I mean, you know, they're not bad folks, folks. But guess what: they're not. They're not competition for us."

He might want to look for advice to former British prime minister Winston Churchill, who said, "You must look at the facts, because they look at you."

Here are the facts:

Over the past decade, annual US exports to China have risen from $69.5 billion to $120 billion.

Over the same period, Chinese exports to American have grown from $296 billion to $539 billion. Over the decade, the Chinese have sold us $4.4 trillion in goods and services, while we have sold China $1.1 trillion.

In 2018, China sold us $540 billion, while we sold the Chinese $120 billion, for a net deficit of $419 billion.

The net result has been a transfer of $3.3 trillion of wealth from America to China.

What are they selling us, and what are we selling them?

According to the U.S. Trade Representative Office:

Dems Promise To Do A Better Job Of Hiding Their Support For Infanticide In The Future
[Babylon Bee] U.S.‐After President Trump once again called attention to Democrats' support for the violent execution of both unborn and newborn babies, Democrats apologized and promised to do a better job of hiding their support for infanticide in the future.

Democrats phoned up various mainstream media outlets and made sure that they called Trump's comments untruthful to provide some cover for their pro-infanticide position while they regrouped. Several leaders on the left realized that they needed to be more circumspect about their public support for killing born babies for the foreseeable future.

"When President Trump started riling up the crowd by accurately pointing out that we believe newborn babies can be executed, it didn't feel good," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. "I heard him listing off the things we believe one by one, and I was like, 'Whoa, that's pretty radical.' So it was a good time for me to stop and take stock of how far left we are moving on abortion."

"And that's when I had a 'Come to Obama' moment and realized that we need to just pretend not to want to kill born babies for a while," she said. "We'll stay under the radar for a while until it's a little more socially acceptable."

"If you guys could just stop quoting our actual beliefs on infanticide and posting actual videos of us saying horrible things about killing babies in the meantime, that'd be great," she added.

Americans' Loss Of Interest In Civil War Battlefields Is Part Of A Disturbing Trend
[The Federalist] Americans are losing interest in the Civil War‐or at least they are losing interest in learning about it and visiting historic battle sites. The Wall Street Journal reported recently that the country’s "five major Civil War battlefield parks‐Gettysburg, Antietam, Shiloh, Chickamauga/Chattanooga, and Vicksburg‐had a combined 3.1 million visitors in 2018, down from about 10.2 million in 1970." Gettysburg, America’s most famous and hallowed battlefield, drew fewer than a million visitors last year, and just 14 percent of the visitor total in 1970.

In addition to fewer tourists, the number of Civil War re-enactors is also declining. Many are growing old, and younger men are not stepping in to replenish their ranks. As one 68-year-old re-enactor, who recently helped organize a recreation of the Battle of Resaca in Georgia, told the Journal, "The younger generations are not taught to respect history, and they lose interest in it."

Exclusive: Disney CEO says it will be 'difficult' to film in Georgia if abortion law takes effect
ANAHEIM, Calif. (Reuters) - Walt Disney Co Chief Executive Bob Iger told Reuters on Wednesday it would be "very difficult" for the media company to keep filming in Georgia if a new abortion law takes effect because many people will not want to work in the U.S. state.

Disney has filmed blockbuster movies in Georgia such as "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Endgame," and it would be a blow to the state’s efforts to create production jobs if the entertainment giant stopped filming there.

Georgia’s Republican governor signed into law on May 7 a ban on abortion after a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat - about six weeks into a pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant. The law is due to take effect on Jan. 1, if it survives court challenges.

Asked if Disney would keep filming in Georgia, Iger said it would be "very difficult to do so" if the abortion law is implemented.

#19  like having to pay actor's union wages for CGI characters.

Please tell me you stole that from the Babylon Bee.

Not Bee. But quite a few years ago. The argument was something akin to if the CGI character could reasonably be acted by an extra, the CGI character is acting, and subject to and under the protection of the union, requiring the amount due that an actor would receive as that extra.

For example. Gungens. Final fight scene. The robots are not quite humanoid like, say C3PO, though one could argue neither is R2D2 yet required a human to operate. Say working wage of a stock extra is $5000 for easy math. Of that, say 5% again easy math would go to the union, $250. Probably too high, but multiply that by every non-speaking CGI critter in that battle, indeed the entire movie. Or a cut scene of the coliseum in Gladiator. I think this got squashed but I don't know anymore.

Additionally, firearms in movies, especially those which fire blanks, are firearms. Imagine trying to shoot (npi) The Walking Dead in California Compliant rules. Licensing and Expert Witness Fees aka Payoff the Government, would be a huge chunk of production cost. It was explained during the Hally Berry does 3 Gun! promo that regular Californians cannot do that because whatshiscompany is one of very few companies who have explicit exemptions from California gun laws because Hollywood, and those guns you see in movies are owned by a very small group of exempt businesses and avoid the onerous laws by being on the set, the firearms are still in their possession and therefore not transferred and thus exempt from California magazine laws etc.

Similar lore concerning Louisiana; in a promotional gig the state waived taxes involving media production. Story was company sent a squad to the state with the orders to "Come up with any kind of a show." Boom, Swamp People.

All the same, I'd tell them to fargoff - do seriously want your state mentioned in Captain Marvel 2? And if the semi-pro and pro sports conglomerate didn't succeed in throwing elbows around, this won't at all.
