Steve Bing: Conspiracy Theories as Democrat Donor, Liz Hurley's Ex and Clinton-Epstein Friend Dies
[IBTimes] Bing, a Hollywood producer and philanthropist, was reportedly depressed over being isolated during coronavirus.

Hollywood producer and philanthropist Steve Bing, who shared a close bond with Democrats, died by suicide, aged 55. Reports said the political donor and philanthropist jumped from the 27th floor of the Century City neighborhood building where he stayed.

Bing, who inherited $600 million from his real estate tycoon grandfather, became popular after his relationship with Elizabeth Hurley became public in 2000-01. The couple share a son, Damian.

Facebook HR exec Leslie Brown has been FIRED after Project Veritas video debut
  • US Tech Solutions: ‘Hiring/termination is confidential information and we cannot comment to a third party on it’

  • Facebook: Comments [made] ‘Not Consistent with our Policies,’ ‘Reviewing Training and Oversight’

Leslie Brown, the woman who appeared in a Project Veritas video making incendiary comments that debuted today,
See video below.
has been fired according to a text message received by PV CEO James O’Keefe.

Brown, the senior HR executive claimed she had been fired just hours after the video debuted. Brown also clarified her connection with the social media giant, resulting in her changing her employer on her LinkedIn page from Facebook to US Tech Solutions, a sub-contractor for Facebook.

“Journalist: I mean, they were able to fire him without having to worry about discrimination.

Brown: Due diligence, right. Because he’s a white man. Yeah, white man. No problem. You can’t do it that easily if there are other issues.

Journalist: Oh, it’s easier when they’re-

Brown: White men.

Journalist: Yeah, no protected class.

Brown: No one has the white man’s back anymore.”

US Tech Solutions told Project Veritas only the client (Facebook) can make hiring/termination decisions.

"Any contractor hiring/termination is confidential information and we cannot comment to a third party on it. We will be happy to respond to Leslie directly if she has any questions about her temp assignment with US Tech," said Manoj Agrawal, CEO of US Tech Solutions.

While this was occurring, a woman named Heather King appeared on a Facebook promoted call with Congressional staff about election medaling.

King commented to the censorship of political posts by its content moderators as documented by Project Veritas insiders were not consistent with the company’s policies.

"With regards to a question related to Project Veritas report. First off is that our reviewers work hard to keep our tack on space for end users every day," said the spokeswoman, who works with Facebook’s Washington-based political team. "We will be reviewing our training and oversight to make sure that we think about policy and we're watching our partners to make sure that they're appropriately and properly following our policies."

The spokeswoman, who was responding to a question from a congressional staffer was speaking on the company’s conference call with several staffers on Election Integrity said Facebook reviews its reviewers.

"Reviewers’ decisions are regularly evaluated, ensure our policies are applied fairly and accurately, not promote any political viewpoint of any stripe and the comments included in this video are not consistent with our policies."

The Project Veritas releases, posted Tuesday and today, documented Facebook content moderators on hidden camera expressing hostility towards President Donald Trump
...His ancestors didn't own any slaves...
and his supporters and their willingness to censor content supporting Trump and his agenda.

"Our insiders recorded Facebook moderators in Tampa and Phoenix saying they would take a bounty from Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
to kill the president and deleting every post with a MAGA hat and labelling it terrorism," said O’Keefe.

"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
...the Peewee Herman clone who owns Facebook. He's got more money than Croesus and thinks he should be regulated by the government because it does such a nifty job with all the other stuff it regulates....
told Congress under oath that Facebook does not censor political speech, but we proves that Facebook does censor political speech—and screenshots of Facebook policy directives, which categorize hate speech that should be taken down by their own policies as political speech, when it is aligned with Facebook’s political agenda," he said.

House Dems Unanimously Block Resolution Condemning Violence and Rioting
[Free Beacon] House Democrats unanimously blocked a resolution condemning acts of violence and rioting—including the "deliberate targeting of law enforcement officers"—in the wake of George Floyd's death.

The resolution, which was introduced by Rep. Greg Steube (R., Fla.) late Thursday morning, condemned Floyd's killing at the hands of police, calling it "inconsistent with the values and conduct expected of law enforcement officers." The resolution also supported peaceful protesters, but it noted that protests have been "exploited by violent extremists" carrying out "acts of violence, looting, destruction of business and personal property, and additional loss of life."

Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) spoke in favor of the resolution, arguing that while Floyd's death was "wrong as wrong could be," there is a "big difference between peaceful protest and rioting." Jordan also spoke against defunding the police, calling it "one of the craziest public policy proposals I have ever seen."

"I think [the resolution] is consistent with where American values are, consistent with the problems we face, consistent with the serious situation we are in," Jordan said. "If we allow this ’defund the police' concept to happen ... it will not only be tough for police officers, we all know that, but the communities they serve—what will happen there is frightening."

No House Democrats voted in favor of Steube's resolution. Rep. Justin Amash (I., Mich.) voted with Republicans to support the measure.

A number of Democratic lawmakers have supported the call to defund police following Floyd's killing, including far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.). Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) advocated for the dismantling of the Minneapolis Police Department in June, calling it "rotten to the root" and a "cancer."

While major cities across the United States have already proposed or approved slashing police budgets, decades of research indicates that better-funded police departments drive down crime and create social benefit. Officials in New York City, Hartford, Austin, Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Los Angeles have all entertained defunding or abolishing police, despite holding some of the highest violent-crime rates in the nation.

Now I think, I better understand why they need Mail In Ballots. Because who in their right minds would vote for a brain drained candidate and support a collection of anarchists that are threatening the very foundation for guaranteed personal rights and liberties over Government?

I still think the LSD's will seek to stage another major civil disruption event to hold them over until Nov 2020 or promote some of their Political Agenda items needed accomplish their real end-game.

So naturally I have to wonder what they have planned for US in the coming weeks? Could it something related to more Gun Controls maybe?

William Barr agrees to House testimony amid subpoena spat with Nadler
Ima thinkrn Barr is ready to pop some knowledge under oath that Nads is too stoopid to know he shouldn't have asked for.
Sounds exciting!
[NY Post] Attorney General William Barr has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee next month amid threats from Chairman Jerrold Nadler of subpoenas and a possible impeachment inquiry, his spokesperson announced.

Barr will deliver his testimony on July 28, at what his spokeswoman described as a "general oversight hearing."

No mention is made of what other topics will be discussed, but the testimony will come at an especially fraught time between Barr and Nadler (D-NY).

Judiciary Committee Democrats are investigating two issues with relation to Barr: his decision to fire a top federal prosecutor who was investigating President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and allegations that Justice Department prosecutors were told explicitly that political considerations influenced the handling of the case of Roger Stone, a longtime Trump associate.

That allegation comes from Aaron Zelinsky, a career Justice Department prosecutor who worked on cases as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, including the case against Stone.

Zelinsky, one of four lawyers who quit the Stone case after the department overruled their sentencing recommendation, testified before the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

He said in his testimony that he was told in no uncertain terms, "Stone was being treated differently from any other defendant because of his relationship to the president."

On the issue of the top federal prosecutor, Nadler and his panel have pledged to investigate the firing of Geoffrey Berman — following an extraordinary standoff over the independence of one of the country’s most important federal prosecutor’s offices.
The US attorney for the Southern District of New York had been investigating Giuliani before his ouster.

Barr announced last Friday that Berman was stepping down and that US Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton would be his successor.

Berman refused to resign until the Senate confirmed his successor, and said his office’s investigations would continue.

Only after Barr agreed to let Berman’s deputy Audrey Strauss to take the reins did Berman agree to step down.

Nadler slammed Barr over the firing of Berman over the weekend, arguing that he deserved to be impeached for his actions while cautioning that the effort would be a "waste of time."

The New York Democrat argued that Senate Republicans would block any of their efforts to impeach Barr.

On Monday, as rumors circulated about the potential for the committee to hit Barr with a subpoena, the committee’s ranking member, Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), wrote Nadler a letter urging him instead to privately find a mutually agreeable date for the attorney general to testify.

The effort appears to have been successful, as a date was announced within two days.

With testimony set, Barr spokeswoman Kerri Kupec is hitting back at the House Democrats, calling their threats to impeach the attorney general a "political thing."

Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, Kupec said, "If people have a problem with Bill Barr coming back to the Department of Justice to restore one system of justice, not a two-tiered system, I think that says a lot more about the critics than it does about the attorney general."

#3  Nadler ought to be prosecuted for impersonating a Congressman along with obstruction of justice. IMHO, he is a part of the cover-up and "insurance policy." I don't think any of this will come about though. The Dems will keep him in place because he is a constant in trying to do damage to the Pubs and Trump.

Now if the Pubs should take the House, keep the Senate and the Presidency, a different scenario might come about...

House Democrats will vote to make Washington D.C. a state - and rename the District of Columbia the Douglass Commonwealth
[Daily Mail] House Democrats are poised to pass a bill that would make Washington, D.C., the nation's 51st state

D.C. would no longer stand for District of Columbia and instead be the 'Douglass Commonwealth,' named for the Maryland-born abolitionist Frederick Douglass
Wakanda is already spoken for.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer explained that Douglass, a Marylander, would balance out George Washington, a Virginian
Yeah, that's the ticket. Another famous Maryland Democrat: John Wilkes Booth
The bill is expected to pass the Democrat-led House, but go nowhere in the Republican-ruled Senate

Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C.'s non-voting House members, said she expected the GOP to lose the Senate and the White House in November
I expect Democrats to lose the Hose and Holmes-Norten to commit Suicide by Cop.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden tweeted Thursday afternoon that he approved of D.C. statehood
Joe always had a fondness for hoods.
Republicans have been averse to the move because the city is overwhelmingly Democratic and statehood would likely give them two Democratic senators
That's why you give back the residential areas to Maryland and Virginia and cut off the obscenely generous federal government subsidized salaries and welfare benefits. Best of all, bye bye Norton.

#1  Another Donk 'we don't like the Constitution' as written -

The Congress shall have Power To… exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such Dis­trict (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Con­gress, become the Seat of the Gov­ernment of the United States… (The U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 17)

It can't be a state without an amendment. However, we apparently don't need an Article V change with our rulers SCOTUS.

#2  It's not likely that a Constitutional Amendment would pass muster.

After watching the riots in D.C., the district government is not ready for statehood. They cannot even protect the District and its inhabitants and its property from mob violence.
