Joe Biden says Hunter will not engage in foreign business if he wins 2020 race
[Washington Examiner] Joe Biden said that his family members, including Hunter Biden, would not engage in any foreign business if he wins the presidency in 2020.

That's not because Hunter did anything wrong as a board member of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, the former vice president said, but due to questionable business activities of President Trump's children.

"They will not be engaged in any foreign business because of what's happened in this administration," Biden said of Hunter Biden and brother James Biden, in an Axios on HBO interview that aired Sunday. "No one's going to be seeking patents for things from China. No one's going to be engaged in that kind of thing."

Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma while Joe Biden, 77, worked on Ukrainian policy while vice president. House Democrats launched impeachment proceedings against Trump after revelations of a phone call in which Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the Bidens, which Democrats argue Trump did for personal political interests rather than legitimate policy reasons.

Indeed. Patents are granted for useful, ingenious, ninobvious ways of solving a problem.

Whereas Son Hoover aka Lil' Crackpipe's solutions to the problem of how to fund his habits entailed the most obvious and useless form of monetization known to man: trading political influence for money.

You and your spawn wouldn't know about newfangled things like patents, Joe. You made your money the old-fashioned way.

Solidarity and anger expressed at ‘Together Against Antisemitism’ rally
[Jpost] The threat to the UK Jewish community will not end following the election, according to a representative of Sussex Friends of Israel.

“If Corbyn gets beaten, who will be blamed? The Jews,” Simon Cobbs of SFI told The Jerusalem Post. “It’s a lose-lose situation for us. If Corbyn gets in, we have an antisemitic Labour government, and if he doesn’t, the Jews will be blamed for it.”

Cobbs spoke as thousands gathered at Parliament Square in London on Sunday for the Together Against Antisemitism rally.

“All we can do is go out and say that we as a community are scared,” said Cobbs. “For me personally, even though it’s a two-and-a-half-hour drive to get there, it’s incredibly important – it’s the last chance before the election to show how angry we are.”

Organized by the Campaign Against Antisemitism, the rally took place four days before the UK general election on Thursday. However, the organization made it clear this was an apolitical rally, “so that Jews and non-Jews alike can say clearly and with one voice that we stand together against antisemitism.”

...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...

The Michael Bloomberg Speech He Doesn't Want You To Hear
About 95 percent of murders are credited to young, male minorities, he claimed, adding that motives are usually associated with drugs or domestic disputes.

“One of the unintended consequences is people say, ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana. They’re all minorities,’” Bloomberg said. “Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. Yes, that’s true. Why do you do it? Because that’s where all the crime is.”

Minority or non-minority, why should 15 and 16 year olds have access to guns without immediate adult supervision (or with adult supervision of known gang members). Strange isn't it, that they have failed even on that one. It's almost like its an excuse to punish everyone.

Alan Dershowitz to Mark Levin: Democrats Are Using Soviet Tactics to Take Down Donald Trump
h/t Instapundit
[PJMedia] On the latest episode of "Life, Liberty & Levin" on Fox News Channel, law professor Alan Dershowitz completely destroyed the Democrats' impeachment case against President Donald Trump. "They're searching for a crime... There is no case for bribery," Dershowitz told Levin.

Host Mark Levin asked Dershowitz about the meaning of "bribery." It has, he said, specific meaning. "It doesn't mean everything. It just doesn't necessarily mean this. What does it mean?"

Well, Dershowitz explained, "There are four criteria... We know it when we see it." For example, "when you pay a government official corruptly to perform an illegal act or an act that is motivated by money. But it can't operate when you're the president of the United States and you're conditioning or withholding money in order to make sure that a country isn't corrupt, and you're asking them to investigate. That just doesn't fit any definition of bribery ‐ common law definition of bribery, statutory definition of bribery. However you define the constitutional word bribery, it just doesn't fit."

Schiff's ‘Whistleblower' Eric Ciaramella Held Mysterious Meeting in Obama's White House in September 2016 Likely Covering Ukraine and Soros Groups
[Gateway Pundit] Suspected Deep State ’Whistleblower’ and leaker Eric Ciaramella held a meeting in September of 2016 in Obama’s White House that based on guests involved, likely covered far-left donor George Soros and the Ukraine.

There are several peculiar aspects to a meeting chaired by much-reported "whistleblower" Eric Ciaramella on September 7, 2016 in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. All seven invitees signed in between 1:14-1:17 PM for a scheduled 1:30 PM start. Based on the attendee expertise, the meeting’s topic was likely Ukraine.

  • The meeting appears to have involved at least three employees of the National Security Agency, the intelligence organization responsible for gathering and analyzing electronic surveillance. This meeting occurred over a month before the first FBI-initiated, Trump-Russia collusion hoax FISA warrant was issued.

  • The presence of one attendee, the Executive Director of a Soros-funded entity, raises suspicions as to the intended courses of action arising from the meeting, given Eric Ciaramella’s previous meetings with Soros-connected individuals.

  • It appears that three attendees may have signed-in under names other than their own. The names seem to be altered in roughly the same fashion, in such a way suggesting a deliberate intent to deceive. Based on the type of alteration, it gives the impression that the individuals were either instructed to do so or the logs were changed. As yet, none of those, whose names appear to be altered, have responded to a request for verification.

    Criminal or unethical intent of the meeting invitees is in no way assumed or implied, but investigating Ciaramella’s perhaps operational activities while a member of the otherwise think tank-like National Security Council is worthwhile.

    According to White House visitor logs, the names of those at Ciaramella’s meeting are listed as: Michael D. Jarvis, Natalia O. Lassowsky, Bailey S. Holladay, Stefanie L. Stagg, Thomas W. Pucci, Donald M. Camp and Jessica M. Gray.

    Based on available public information, the professional roles of the attendees have been analyzed.

    Michael D. Jarvis became Executive Director of the Soros-funded Transparency and Accountability Initiative in June 2016. He was previously with the World Bank Group working on corporate responsibility issues, anti-corruption, private sector roles in development, and multi-stakeholder governance. Jarvis is a specialist in the oil, gas and mining sectors. George Soros is said to have "extensive business interests in Ukraine," a country with large oil and gas industries.

    13 things to look for in the DOJ OIG FISA abuse report (plus a link to the document in the comments)
    [Federalist] Today, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz will reportedly issue his findings on the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI’s compliance (or lack thereof) with the legal requirements and internal policies and procedures related to the Carter Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications.

    Horowitz’s report follows a 20-month investigation into possible FISA abuse, as well as an inquiry into the DOJ and FBI’s relationship and communications with dossier author Christopher Steele, triggered by requests from then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions and members of Congress.

    We further found that while Strzok was directly involved in the decisions to open Crossfire Hurricane and the four individual cases, he was not the sole, or even the highest level, decision maker as to any of those matters.

    We also concluded that, under the AG guidelines and the DIOG, the FBI had an authorized purpose when it opened Crossfire Hurricane to obtain information about, or protect against, a national security threat or federal crime, even though the investigation also had the potential to impact constitutionally protected activity.

    #9  However -

    We are deeply concerned that so many basic and fundamental errors were made by three separate, hand-picked investigative teams; on one of the most sensitive FBI investigations; after the matter had been briefed to the highest levels within the FBI; even though the information sought through use of FISA authority related so closely to an ongoing presidential campaign; and even though those involved with the investigation knew that their actions were likely to be subjected to close scrutiny.
    Posted by: Bobby || 12/09/2019 14:35 Comments || Top||

    #10  The rest of page 414 is also interesting -

    We believe this circumstance reflects a failure not just by those who prepared the FISA applications, but also by the managers and supervisors in the Crossfire Hurricane chain of command, including FBI senior officials who were briefed as the investigation progressed. We do not expect managers and supervisors to know every fact about an investigation, or senior leaders to know all the details of cases about which they are briefed. However, especially in the FBl's most sensitive and high-priority matters, and especially when seeking court permission to use an intrusive tool such as a FISA order, it is incumbent upon the entire chain of command, including senior officials, to take the necessary steps to ensure that they are sufficiently familiar with the facts and circumstances supporting and potentially undermining a FISA application in order to provide effective oversight consistent with their level of supervisory responsibility. Such oversight requires greater familiarity with the facts than we saw in this review, where time and again during OIG interviews FBI managers, supervisors, and senior officials displayed a lack of understanding or awareness of important information concerning many of the problems we identified.

    In the preparation of the FISA applications to surveil Carter Page, the Crossfire Hurricane team failed to comply with FBI policies, and in so doing fell short of what is rightfully expected from a premier law enforcement agency entrusted with such an intrusive surveillance tool. In light of the significant concerns identified with the Carter Page FISA applications and the other issues described in this report, the OIG today initiated an audit that will further examine the FBI's compliance with the Woods Procedures in FISA applications that target U.S. persons in both counterintelligence and counterterrorism investigations. We also make the following recommendations to assist the Department and the FBI in avoiding similar failures in future investigations.

    Somebody should lose their job over this.

    Oh, wait - several already have.

    ‘Treason': House Judiciary Committee Report Implicates Trump in Ultimate Crime
    Talk about projection
    [Breitbart] The House Judiciary Committee report released Saturday on the legal and constitutional framework for impeaching President Donald Trump includes a discussion of the most serious crime listed in the Constitution: treason.

    Citing the constitutional provision that impeachment applies to "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors," the report hints throughout that President Trump might have committed treason against the United States.

    The Constitution specifically defines treason in Article III, Section 3: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    The House Judiciary Committee report, however, expands that definition to include what it calls "betrayal," and declares: "Although the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy."

    The phrase "schemes with foreign powers" is sufficiently vague to include the "quid pro quo" plan that Democrats allege the president attempted to make with Ukraine, trading U.S. aid for investigation into a political opponent.

    (No direct evidence exists to prove that claim, and the only direct witnesses testified before the House Intelligence Committee that the president did not want that "quid pro quo.")

    Later, the report again implicates President Trump in "treason" by creating an expansive definition that just happens to reflect Democrats’ argument that Trump endangered national security by suspending security assistance to a U.S. ally.

    The report expands the definition of "treason" as follows:

    At the very heart of "Treason" is deliberate betrayal of the nation and its security. Such betrayal would not only be unforgivable, but would also confirm that the President remains a threat if allowed to remain in office. A President who has knowingly betrayed national security is a President who will do so again. He endangers our lives and those of our allies.

    The suggestion of "treason" also parallels an argument Democrats continue to make about Trump and Russia.

    House Democrats have consistently implied that the president’s dealings with Ukraine reflect, at core, an effort to help Russia ‐ even though he has given Ukraine lethal defensive weapons to fight Russia, unlike his predecessor.

    As Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN on Thursday night, after calling for articles of impeachment to be drafted: "In my view, Ukraine is very ‐ all about Russia because withholding or granting military assistance to Ukraine was all to the benefit of Russia to hold up that aid."

    Despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusion, after two years of investigation, that there was no collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, Democrats continue to believe he is conspiring with what they now consider a U.S. enemy. (Under President Barack Obama, they supported the "reset" policy, appeasing Russia’s geopolitical ambitions.)

    The House Judiciary Committee’s report, written by the committee’s 20 Democratic staff members, does not rule out charging Trump with treason at any point in the text, and seems to have been written to make doing so a possibility.
    No evidence and just speculation. They and the press aren't even hiding it anymore. Just flat out lies and smears. When the boogaloo kicks off, remember these people and show them no mercy.

    I trust completely that you less optimistic types will figure things out and fix them before it occurs to me to notice, Lex dear. Or that it won’t be nearly as dire as you can imagine, because while many people happily talk shit, most won’t bestir themselves to make it happen, even the few who actually have the skills. And of those who do have the skills, the most deadly are generally quiet about it when among civilians, but y’all recognize each other, I believe — and while some of the more radical on the left have indeed been getting shooting and other training, there is a huge difference between being a trained terrorist on one hand and trained soldiers fighting a war with unbound hands on the other hand. The trained soldiers are at least 3:1 on our side, based on historic voting records, and probably even more so among those who chose to serve at the tip of the spear, contra that smarmy little Communist idiot who graduated from West Point a few years ago, then disappeared from sight.

    #16  Over at Maggie's Farm it was suggested that the treason charge was a poison pill, to give Democrats from purple districts a plausible reason to vote against it. I think the leaders know it's not going to make it through the Senate. If their goal is to cripple Trump's administration with accusations and legal maneuvering, bringing things to trial isn't that important--just so they can keep their voters satisfied that they are fighting the good fight.

    Sanders staffer forced out over alleged antisemitic, homophobic tweets
    The Corbynization of the Democratic Party proceeds apace.
    [Jpost] The Washington Free Beacon revealed antisemitic and homophobic tweets it claimed Darius Khalil Gordon, a Bernie Sanders
    ...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
    campaign staffer, posted.

    "He is no longer with the campaign, and we wish him the best," Mike Casca, a campaign front man, told CNN.

    On Wednesday, Gordon announced that he was hired to work as the campaign's deputy directory of constituency organizing, CNN reported.

    In 2011, Gordon tweeted, "I got a black mans body, white mans power, jew man money, and an asian man life span..lol," according to The Washington Free Beacon, which claimed that Gordon deleted a number tweets that contained antisemitic language after a request for comment.

    Multiple tweets reference "Jew money," contain disparaging remarks about homosexuals and use a homophobic slur.

    The Sanders campaign has also garnered criticism over the candidate's appointment of Linda Sarsour as his campaign surrogate.

    The Democratic Majority for Israel released a statement regarding "Sanders's refusal to call out antisemitism" following Sarsour's statement that Israel is "built on the idea" of Jewish supremacy.

    "In fact, Israel is built on the idea that every people, including the Jewish people, is entitled to self-determination," the organization wrote.

    Democratic Majority for Israel says it "made Senator Sanders aware" of Sarsour's anti-Israel comments, adding that it "privately urged him to publicly reject her comments yesterday but received no response and saw no action."

    "Darius Khalil Gordon’s tweets traffic in a base, antisemitic slur. It is outrageous that Bernie Sanders would hire him, given Gordon’s history of posting blatantly antisemitic comments on social media," Matt Brooks, president of the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), wrote in a statement on the RJC's website.

    "Sanders’ campaign already has an image problem in the Jewish community, after he proposed withholding military aid to Israel and appointed Linda Sarsour as a campaign surrogate. This latest incident just confirms that Sanders’ problems run deep."

    Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar
    ...Somali-American Dem representative from Minnesota. She is apparently married to her brother and may be her own grandmaw on her mother's side...
    , both of whom face accusations of antisemitism, are also avid supporters of the Vermont senator's presidential campaign.

    Gordon's Twitter account is no longer active.

    Because Karl Marx was anti-semitic.

    True. But incomplete. The Left has always hated the Jews, because the Left has been since the French Revolution about defining individuals as interchangeable cogs in the class they belong to, organized by the state and uninterested in individual needs and abilities. Judaism, on the other hand, is precisely about individual efforts self-organized into communities taking responsibility for meeting their own needs and wants, mostly working around a frequently adversarial state. Napoleon, when he emancipated the Jews, said something like “Everything for the Jew as a man, nothing for the Jews as a people.” And he expected that, as a result of emancipation and equal treatment under the laws of his empire, the Jews as a distinct cultural group would quickly disappear.

    Retiring House Democrat says a Trump reelection would be a 'nightmare scenario' for Congress
    The poor darling. And there he is, doing nothing to help anyone.
    [The Hill] Retiring Rep. Denny Heck (D-Wash.) said Sunday that President Trump's reelection in 2020 would be a "nightmare scenario" for Congress.

    Heck announced Wednesday that he would retire after completing his current term, noting that part of him feels "discouraged" by some of his colleagues' reactions to the impeachment inquiry.

    "If President Trump gets a second term, what do you think the impact's going to be on Congress?" "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd asked Heck on NBC.

    "That is a nightmare scenario, in my mind," Heck responded.

    "Because of the absence of a commitment to decency or truth on his part that has been amply demonstrated in his three years in public office, because of his refusal to recognize even the most basic precepts of constitutional principle," he added.

    Heck added that one point of discouragement has been the growing number of people who "simply don't believe in compromise."

    "My soul is weary, Chuck," he said.
    ”Oh, Chuck, the ennui, it is so tiresome,” he added.

    #1  The World is Too Much With Us

    By the Hon. Chuck "What the" Heck-Wordsworth

    The world is too much with us; late and soon,
    Getting and spending, we lay waste the Nation's budget;—
    Little we see in Congress that can nudge it;
    We have given our arse away, a sordid boon!
    This Whore that bares her cheeks unto the moon;
    The Squad that will be howling at all hours,
    And are up-gathered now like rancid flowers;
    For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
    It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be
    A Deplorable suckled in a tweet outworn;
    So might I, opening in this pleasant studio,
    Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
    Have sight of Schiff, Delecto, and Deludio
    Or hear old Nancy blow her Botoxed horn.

    Republicans mount ad blitz on impeachment, making some vulnerable Democrats nervous
    [MSN] Republicans are dramatically outspending Democrats on impeachment-related ads on Facebook and television, illustrating how fully the GOP has embraced the issue as a political winner as public opinion remains split on the House effort to remove the president.

    The ad blitz has worried some Democrats in swing districts who are being painted as do-nothing, pro-impeachment radicals. The Democrats have been urging party leaders for weeks to strike back with their own countermessage, to no avail.

    Over the past month, GOP candidates have used anti-impeachment messages to try to recruit new supporters, and independent big-money groups boosting Republicans have launched roughly $10 million in ads aimed at Democrats in districts that President Trump won in 2016.

    Some of those vulnerable Democrats, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk candidly about private conversations, said party leaders told them the cavalry is coming but shared no firm date.

    House Majority Forward, a group with close ties to House Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi
    Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments...
    (D-Calif.), launched a $1.5 million television ad campaign in support of some of them, but it lasted for just two weeks as the inquiry unfolded at the beginning of October.

    The difference is especially stark on Facebook, where more than 100 congressional Republican incumbents and challengers and national pro-GOP groups ran anti-impeachment ads in the past month ‐ roughly three times the number of such ads run on the Democratic side, according to an analysis by The Washington Post.

    Devin Nunes 'definitely' taking legal action after phone records appear in impeachment report
    [WASHINGTONTIMES] Rep. Devin Nunes, Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, Republican, said Saturday that he will pursue legal action over his phone records being exposed by the House Intelligence Committee he sits on.

    Mr. Nunes, the committee’s ranking member and former chairman, threatened the litigation in light of records of his phone calls appearing in a recent congressional report issued as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

    "I believe I am the first member of Congress, and I believe my staff and former staff are the first ones ever to have their phone records exposed like this," Mr. Nunes said on Fox News.

    "We’re definitely going to take legal action," Mr. Nunes said on the "Fox & Friends: Weekend" program.

    Released on Tuesday, the intelligence committee’s report contains its findings thus far with respect to the ongoing impeachment inquiry triggered by Mr. Trump withholding hundreds of millions of dollars in military assistance to Ukraine amid pursuing a favor from his counterpart in Kyiv.

    Among the report’s 300-pages are phone records indicating Mr. Nunes and his staff was in contact earlier this year with individuals including Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani and Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian businessman associated with Mr. Giuliani who has since been indicted on campaign finance law violations, among others.

    Patrick Boland, a front man for Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff, California Democrat, said on Thursday that Sherlocks "did not subpoena call records for any member of Congress or their staff" and instead suggested that Mr. Nunes and his team had been in touch with others under scrutiny.

    "Any questions about the fact that Members, congressional staff or journalists appear in call records released by the Committee should be directed at those individuals, who were in contact with individuals of investigative interest to the impeachment inquiry," Mr. Boland said.

    Yair Lapid begs Brits not to vote for Jeremy Corbyn
    [Jpost] Blue and White’s candidate for foreign minister in a prospective unity government, MK Yair Lapid, urged British voters on Monday to take into account Labour Party candidate Jeremy Corbyn’s antisemitism when they cast ballots in the December 12 election.

    Lapid made his statement in an answer to a question from Darren Miller, a Conservative Party member of the Welsh parliament, at the annual conference of the Israel Allies Foundation, which brought together pro-Israel parliament members from around the world. Other Israeli politicians have spoken about the British election but not as bluntly.
