Why Isn't the Radical Left Objecting to Billionaire Michael Bloomberg Buying the Florida Election?
[Axios via PJ] Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has raised over $16 million to help felons pay outstanding fines and fees to regain their voting rights in Florida.

#1  It seems Michael Bloomberg's wealth has deep and profitable connections with Communist China.

An yes he has some Russian Business related interests also.

It seems he could be just another George Soros type Billionaire. aka an Uber Rich Person that made his wealth in the USA initially. That now hates the USA and has snuggled up to countries in direct conflict with the idea of a free and civilian controlled country like the USA.

'Trump was right, explosive new FBI texts detail internal furor over phony crosswise hurricane investigation
[Federalist] Newly disclosed internal FBI notes and text messages detail the extent of the FBI's desire to take down Trump and his associates at any cost.

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.

“[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier. That briefing of Trump was used as a pretext to legitimize the debunked dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by a foreign intelligence officer who was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch.

“Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”

“Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”

“[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”

“[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.

While the names of the agents responsible for the texts are redacted, the legal filing from Powell, quoting communications from the Department of Justice (DOJ), states that the latest document production included handwritten notes and texts from Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and FBI analysts who worked on the FBI’s investigation of Flynn.

Agents also said they were worried about how a new attorney general might view the actions taken against Trump during the investigation. Shortly after then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) was confirmed to be Trump’s new attorney general, congressional Democrats, media, and Obama holdovers within DOJ immediately moved to force Sessions to recuse himself from overseeing the department’s investigations against Trump.

“[T]he new AG might have some questions….then yada yada yada…we all get screwed,” one agent wrote.

The FBI agents also discussed how the investigation’s leadership was consumed with conspiracy theories rather than evidence.

“I’m tellying [sic] man, if this thing ever gets FOIA’d, there are going to be some tough questions asked,” one agent wrote. “[A]nd a great deal of those will be related to Brian having a scope way outside the boundaries of logic[.]”

Several texts show that the order to close the criminal investigation against Flynn came as early as Nov. 8, 2016, the same day as the 2016 presidential election. It was later re-opened in early January of 2017.

“We have some loose ends to tie up, and we all need to meet to discuss what to do with each case (he said shut down Razor),” one agent texted, referring to Crossfire Razor, the FBI’s internal code name for the investigation of Flynn.

“[S]o glad they’re closing Razor,” an agent responded.

The new disclosures made by DOJ also show that the FBI used so-called national security letters (NSLs) to spy on Flynn’s finances. Unlike traditional subpoenas, which require judicial review and approval before authorities can seize an innocent person’s property and information, NSLs are never independently reviewed by courts. One of the agents noted in a text message that the NSLs were just being used as a pretext by FBI leadership to buy time to find dirt on Flynn after the first investigation of him yielded no derogatory information.

Ex-Union President Sentenced for Violent Extortion in Church Brawl Case
[FREEBEACON] A former union president was sentenced to more than three years in prison for violent mostly peaceful extortion on Wednesday after he coordinated a brutal assault on a group of non-union workers at an Indiana church.

Jeffrey Veach resigned as president of Iron Workers Local 395 after pleading guilty to the charges in January—two days after the labor group endorsed Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Failed seeker of the Democratic presidential nomination on multiple occasions, vice president under Barack Obama, giving it a last try in his dotage for 2020...
. The 57-year-old Veach coordinated an attack in January 2016 against D5 Iron Works, a non-union company in Illinois, over a construction contract that encroached on the union's perceived "territory." The attack left one of the non-union workers with a broken jaw that later required multiple surgeries.

"At Veach's direction, the union members conducted a coordinated attack on the D5 workers," the Justice Department said in a release. "The victims were beaten with fists and loose pieces of hardwood."

Iron Workers Local 395 did not respond to a request for comment about Veach's sentence.

Union attorneys argued that the incident should have been exempt from prosecution because the assault took place as part of "legitimate union objectives," echoing the 1973 Supreme Court Enmons ruling, which found federal anti-extortion laws do not apply to union violence if it is conducted to advance union interests. Labor watchdogs welcomed the sentence, saying that the federal government needs to ramp up enforcement to curb violence. Matthew Leen, vice president of the National Right to Work Committee, called on Congress to eliminate that exemption in the future.

"Unfortunately, there is a long history of union bosses considering intimidation and violence to be legitimate tools to be used against workers and employers who refuse to toe the union line," Leen told the Washington Free Beacon. "This case demonstrates why it is past time to enact the Freedom of Union Violence Act, which eliminates unions' exemptions from the Hobbs Anti-Extortion Act."

-Short Attention Span Theater-
BREAKING - Trump to Name Amy Coney Barrett For SCOTUS
[Washington Examiner] Sources told the New York Times that Trump plans to announce Saturday afternoon that the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals judge will be his third nominee to the high court, but they stressed caution because the president has a history of changing his mind at the last minute.
So maybe not so "Breaking News". However ...
Told that Barrett was reported to be his pick, the president replied, "I haven't said it was her, but she is outstanding." He also said all the candidates under consideration are "all great."

When Trump selected Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 to fill the vacancy from retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, he said of Barrett, "I'm saving her for Ruth's seat," a Republican Senate staffer told the Washington Examiner.

Despicable. But I kinda want them to go hard after her on faith and go after their children, because it will drive a lot of fence-setters into being Trump voters. Especially lefty Catholics who are somehow voting Joe "because he is Catholic" while overlooking his support for abortion, euthanasia, and the demolition of traditional marriage and gender, all in opposition to Church Dogma.

Fifth Column
U-Haul that supplied riot gear to Louisville protesters reportedly rented by Soros-connected bail project
[BIZPACREVIEW] The U-Haul truck captured on video distributing riot gear for Louisville protesters following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case was reportedly tied to the Louisville Bail Initiative, a left-wing activist group stacked with George Soros
...either Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Auric Goldfinger come true...
Justice Fellows.

Almost immediately after the grand-jury announcement, protesters swarmed a U-Haul truck in a parking lot and took out riot gear, weapons, gas masks, and anti-police signs to use during festivities with police.

Multiple media outlets posted videos on Twitter, with many users commenting that the activists had prepared to protest no matter what happened.


The presence of the fully-stocked U-Haul truck caused many Twitter users to wonder who’s bankrolling these nationwide protests, which appear to be highly organized and very well-funded — and not the organic protests of citizens reacting to a news announcement.

Multiple journalists outed Holly Zoller, a board member of a Louisville Bail Project, as the person who allegedly rented the U-Haul and supplied the riot gear to protesters.

Holly Zoller later appeared to confirm that she had rented the U-Haul truck in an undercover phone call published by The Gateway Pundit.

A U-Haul employee leaked call logs, showing that it was barraged with complaints about the U-Haul truck supplying riot gear to protesters.

The Bail Project claims to have bailed out 12,096 prisoners to date. According to her bio, Zoller "has organized around anti-fascist
...anybody you disagree with, damn them...
movements." In other words, Zoller admits to being a supporter or member of Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...

Trays of mail, including absentee ballots, found in a ditch in Wisconsin
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Police in Greenville, Wisconsin, found three trays of mail, including absentee ballots, in a ditch.The Outagamie County Sheriff's Office discovered the trays in a ditch on Tuesday morning, near Appleton International Airport, according to WLUK. The mail was returned to the U.S. Postal Service, and an investigation is underway.

"The United States Postal Inspection Service immediately began investigating, and we reserve further comment on this matter until that is complete," USPS front man Bob Sheehan told WLUK.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service told the Washington Examiner that it is aware of the mail, including absentee ballots, found in a ditch and is investigating the incident. The department declined to comment further.

The Outagamie County Sheriff's Office told the Washington Examiner that the mail discovered was "mail going to the post office."

Biden Campaign to Appear Alongside Hanoi Jane
[FREEBEACON] The Biden campaign, which has bombarded President Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
with attacks about his respect for U.S. soldiers, will be campaigning this weekend with Jane Fonda, a celebrity best known for fraternizing with enemy troops during the Vietnam War. Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kámala Harris
Former Oakland mayor Willie Brown's former mistress, now a senatrix from California former 2020 Dem presidential hopeful, and Joe Biden's wing nut...
is set to join Fonda at a Saturday virtual event held by progressive advocacy group Supermajority. The event—titled "Supercharge: Women All In"—will "bring together thousands of women to laugh, sing, dance, and celebrate women's political power," according to the group's website.

Fonda traveled to North Vietnam in 1972 as part of an anti-war protest that saw her pose for photos with enemy troops on an anti-aircraft gun. The photo sparked outrage among Vietnam veterans, earning her the nickname "Hanoi Jane." Fonda's public appearances remain subject to controversy—a group of Ohio veterans called on the actress to donate her $83,000 speaking fee to the families of fallen soldiers ahead of a May appearance at Kent State University.

Harris and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Candidate for president in 2020. Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant...
have criticized President Donald Trump on veterans' issues in recent weeks. During a September "veterans roundtable," Biden criticized Trump for ignoring "the bounty on the heads of Americans in Afghanistan," referencing a slew of June reports that claimed Russia bribed the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
to kill U.S. servicemen. One day before the roundtable, Marine Corps general Frank McKenzie—who oversees military operations in the region—told NBC News that a review of U.S. intelligence failed to corroborate the alleged bounties.

Harris promoted the roundtable in a tweet, saying American veterans "sacrifice so much for our nation and deserve our respect and gratitude, both while on active duty and after." The Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment on her upcoming appearance with Fonda.

Fonda has long supported Harris financially, contributing nearly $6,000 to the Democrat's Senate campaign since 2016. The actress also gave $1,000 to the Biden Victory Fund in June after donating a combined $10,300 to Sens. Elizabeth Being Native American has been part of my story since the day I was born Warren
...The Great White Squaw, Lizzie is the Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts. She traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. She has high cheekbones that stretch all the way to the top of her head. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless...
(D., Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar
Senatrix from Minnesota, candidate for the Dem presidential 2020 nomination. You can tell the kind of husband a boy will make by the way he treats his mother. You can tell the kind of leader a politician will make by the way he treats his staff. Klobuchar is reportedly overbearing, snide, and dictatorial with her people. She see this as merely getting the best from them. Her name spelled backward in the Russian alphabet would be "Rachubolk," which sounds pretty daggone suspicious...
(D., Minn.), Democratic governors Steve Bullock (Mont.) and Jay Inslee
...Governor of Washington state, failed candidate for the 2020 Dem presidential campaign, mainly because nobody outside the state and some inside had ever heard of him. He complained, complained, complained that the Trump administration wasn't doing enough to help the state, then returned an Army field hospital and 400 ventilators that didn't get used...
(Wash.), and billionaire Tom Steyer during the presidential primary.

#2  "Useless idiot" Hanoi Jane is a part of the O'Biden traveling circus? That's certain to garner votes for Biden (sarc). Team Biden is writing of the veteran's vote?

#3  As a baby boomer, I can't believe how tone-deaf this is. I don't think at this point anyone is very enamored of Jane Fonda; but lots of people still hate her.

#4  The picture of her sitting on an AA gun, wearing a helmet, should have been exhibit A at her trial for treason.
And yes, to me, her actions do meet the Constitutional definition of treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Robert Mueller Investigative Agent Recently Testified Special Counsel Operation was "Intended to Get Trump"
[ConservativeTreehouse] Well, this MUST READ INTERVIEW should bring all efforts against Flynn to a halt.

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, Jeff Jensen, has been conducting an ongoing review of the FBI investigation that led to charges in the case against Michael Flynn. As part of that review an interview was recently conducted (September 17, 2020) with the former Flynn supervisory case agent, William Barnett – who also was assigned to the Special Counsel’s Office investigating Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.

#2  Golly gee whillikers. I got an idea. Let's initiate a special commission. And Bill "Pitbull" Barr can lead it.

#3  I'll believe it when I see Comey, Clapper, Brennan all arrested, and flunkies like Halper arrested and singing like a bird to incriminate the cabal, including Schiff.

Until then, its trash talk, Kabuki.
