The remarkable lengths taken to whitewash Bill Clinton's cosy links to pervert Jeffrey Epstein when Hillary ran for President
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • Epstein's lawyer Darren Indyke tried to get workers to declare they had not seen former president Bill Clinton visiting the disgraced financier's 'Paedo Island'

  • Miles and Cathy Alexander received the email during ill-fated Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential run which she lost to Donald Trump

France: Far-right candidate Eric Zemmour fined for hate speech
[DW] Eric Zemmour, who plans to run for president in April, has been fined for remarks about young migrants colonists made in 2020. He accused the youngsters universally of being "thieves, killers and rapists."

A Gay Paree court on Monday handed a €10,000 ($11,400) fine to far-right presidential candidate Eric Zemmour
...the eminent, contrary Le Figaro columnist and nationalist, anti-migrant public intellectual whose Jewish Berber parents left Algeria for la belle France in the 1950s...
for comments he made about young migrants colonists in 2020 that the court found amounted to hate speech.

Zemmour, a former media pundit seeking to challenge President Emmanuel Macron in April's elections, has already had two hate speech convictions.

What did Zemmour say about young migrants colonists?

Speaking to French news broadcaster CNews in 2020, Zemmour said young unaccompanied migrants colonists had "no reason being here; they are thieves, they are killers, they are rapists, that's all they do, they should be sent back."

"These people cost us money," he added.

The court ruled that the comments constituted incitement to hatred or violence on the basis of ethnic, national, racial or religious origin.

Zemmour has gathered enthusiastic audiences with his anti-Islam, anti-immigration rhetoric ahead of the election, putting him in competition with the more established right-wing politician Marine Le Pen, who is also running.

Zemmour wasn't present at court for his trial. However,
some people cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go...
in a statement, he denounced what he called "an attempt to intimidate [him]'' from prosecutors and anti-racist groups.

After the sentence was announced, he slammed the verdict, calling it "the condemnation of a free spirit by a judicial system that has been overrun by ideologues."

Zemmour's lawyer Olivier Pardo, who has suggested the trial was politically motivated, told broadcaster BFM TV that his client might appeal.

Zemmour has already been previously convicted of incitement to racial hatred after saying discrimination against Black and Arab people was justified. That 2010 conviction was followed by one in 2016 of incitement to religious hatred for comments he made targeting Islam.

He has also been tried in other cases in which he was acquitted.

Zemmour is set to go on appeal trial on Thursday on a charge of "contesting crimes against humanity" — a crime under French law.

The charges stem from a 2019 television debate in which Zemmour claimed that Marshal Philippe Petain, head of the collaborationist Vichy government during World War II, saved La Belle France's Jews from the Holocaust.

He was acquitted on the charge in 2021, on the basis that he made the comments in the heat of the moment.

Prosecutors are expected to cite similar remarks Zemmour has made in recent months to back their case that the acquittal should be overturned.

Government Corruption
Fauci: We're Just In Phase One Of ‘Five Phases Of The Pandemic'
[Daily Wire] Just.STFU.
Dr. Anthony Fauci still insists it’s too early to say the pandemic is waning due to the contagious but mild Omicron variant.

Speaking online at the World Economic Forum, Fauci was asked if the virus that causes COVID-19 would finally become endemic in 2022. He responded by saying it’s too early to tell and that the world still appears to be in phase one of a five-phase pandemic, The New York Times reported.

"Dr. Fauci also said that the world is still in the first of what he considered to be the five phases of the pandemic. The first is the ’truly pandemic’ phase, ’where the whole world is really very negatively impacted,’ followed by deceleration, control, elimination and eradication," The Times reported.

Fauci added that the only infectious human disease to ever be eradicated was smallpox but said, "That’s not going to happen with this virus."

Further, Fauci insisted that countries needed to reach phase two, or the "control" phase, to make the virus a "non-disruptive presence" in society. When this happens, he said, the virus could be considered endemic, likening it to the rhinovirus and certain other upper respiratory infections.

Fauci also said during the event that since the Omicron variant is more contagious but causes less severe symptoms, it could help spread collective immunity, but insisted "it is an open question as to whether or not Omicron is going to be the live virus vaccination that everyone is hoping for, because you have such a great deal of variability with new variants emerging."

"I would hope that that’s the case," Fauci added, "but that would only be the case if we don’t get another variant that eludes the immune response."

Fauci cautioned that the future of the pandemic is still unknown, saying, "The answer is: We do not know."

Fauci has become a polarizing figure during the pandemic, from regularly changing his stance on various aspects of the pandemic such as masks and isolation times, to consistently insisting we are hardly better off than we were in March 2020.

As The Daily Wire reported, the frustrations with Fauci could come to a head if Republicans win back the House in 2022. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that he would investigate Fauci should Republicans retake the lower chamber.

"If the American people put us back in charge, we are definitely going to do this because we now know without a doubt that Dr. Fauci knew on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 that this thing came from a lab," Jordan said. "The top scientists in the country were saying it came from a lab. One scientist says we got the notes now from the conference call on February 1st. One scientist says, ’I don’t see how this can happen in nature, but it would be easy to do in a lab.’"

"And yet just in a matter of days, they changed their position, write the article that appears in Nature of Medicine Magazine, which then gets cited in the now famous letter in The Lancet, which became the gospel for the fact that Fauci can go out and tell people it didn’t come from a lab when in fact they knew it did," Jordan continued. "The interesting thing is. We point this out. We just learned this last week, the two doctors who were most adamant that this thing came from a lab early on: one is Dr. Kristian Anderson. On Jan. 31, 2020, he says this to Dr. Fauci in an email: ’Virus looks engineered. Virus not consistent with evolutionary theory.’ So, he knew it came from a lab."

New tough-on-crime Virginia DA fires 30 staffers including entire civil rights division
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Virginia's new attorney general Jason Miyares announced investigations into the Virginia Parole Board and Loudoun County schools, the center of a sexual assault case that dominated the gubernatorial and attorney general's races.'One of the reasons Virginians get so fed up with government is the lack of transparency - and that's a big issue here,' Miyares said in a statement.

'The Virginia Parole Board broke the law when they let out murders, rapists, and cop killers early on their sentences without notifying the victims.

Loudoun Country Public Schools covered up a sexual assault on school grounds for political gain, leading to an additional assault of a maiden of tender years.' A 14-year-old boy, who identifies as non-binary, was arrested and found guilty of raping a girl in a school bathroom that allowed students to use the restroom of their gender identity.

The student was transferred to another district where he allegedly raped another student and the district was accused of covering up the incident.

Miyares, who ran a tough-on-crime campaign, had pledged to investigation allegations of wrongdoing by the state parole board.

In 2020 the Virginia Parole Board granted 329 inmates early parole, higher than any number in the last four years.

The state inspector general did investigate at least seven of the cases after a whistleblower alleged misconduct, and found some of the complaints to be 'substantiated.'

But the Virginia parole board did not face any consequences and former Gov. Ralph Coonman Northam
Governor of Virginia, another Dem Great White Hope. He has a fondness for wearing blackface. He won election by calling his Publican opponent Ed Gillespie a racist, but then, don't they all?
's administration called the investigator of the cases Jennifer Moschetti biased.

Moschetti then lost her job in March 2021.

Hours after his inauguration, Youngkin fired the entire parole board and brought in all new appointees.

It was only part of a busy day for the new governor, where he issued nine executive orders and two executive directives.

Among the governor's day-one actions were banning Critical Race Theory

...teaches that skin color is the most important characteristic of any person, which translates to separate but equal with a different bunch in charge. All whites and Asians are born racist and racism permeates every aspect of society, which should be dismantled and the remains turned over to the kind of dipshit who pushes this nonsense...
in schools, allowing parents to opt out of mask requirements in schools and rescinding the state's vaccine mandate.

At the same time, Miyares in one of the first actions of his new office fired 30 staffers, including 17 attorneys and reportedly the entire conviction integrity unit. Miyares notified the staffers their employment was terminated on Friday, before he was even sworn in.

Miyares, a Republican, was sworn in on Saturday after a GOP sweep across Virginia that led to a governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and lower chamber of the state legislature all controlled by the same party. Democrats still control the state senate and the secretary of state's office.

Miyares spokesperson Victoria LaCivita told DailyMail.com the 30 staffers knew the AG would be moving in a different direction and said the large-scale purge was typical at the start of a new administration.

She said Miyares' predecessor, Mark Herring, made more cuts.

'During the campaign, it was made clear that Attorney General Miyares and former Attorney General Herring have very different visions for how the office should be run. This is routine for a new administration,' she said.

'There are 523 people who work in the Office of the Attorney General, and 643 who report to the Attorney General statewide. Only 30 personnel changes were made. Attorney General Herring made more substantial cuts after he took over from his Republican predecessor.'

#6  Something we see over and over again here at the 'Burg is that the initial reports about any event are... noisy. Fog of war, bad reporting, deliberately misleading statements and general hysteria. There is a reason for the 24 hour rule.

In this case, the new DA fired a bunch of people. Initial hysteria said it was entire departments. Later reports suggested the targeting was more specific. I would expect more 'progressive' departures in the near future when the writing on the wall becomes clear.

Michigan Democrat initially suggests 'White supremacy' to blame for attack on Texas synagogue
[FOXNEWS] Democratic Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel suggested Saturday that "White supremacy" could be to blame for the attack on a Texas synagogue by a Brit seeking the release of a convicted terrorist dubbed "Lady al-Qaeda."
Dana Nessel, a George Soros-backed lesbian leftist
In a video clip first reported by the Washington Free Beacon, Nessel told MSNBC's Yasmin Vossoughian that a rise in hate crimes and formation of White supremacist Death Eater organizations across the country would make the realization they perpetrated such an event hardly a surprise. According to the Free Beacon, it had been reported already that the suspect was demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui
...American-educated Pak cognitive neuroscientist who was convicted of assault with intent to murder her U.S. interrogators in Afghanistan. In September 2010, she was sentenced to 86 years in jug after a three-ring trial. Siddiqui, using the alias Fahrem or Feriel Shahin, was one of six alleged al-Qaeda members who bought $19 million worth of blood diamonds in Liberia immediately prior to 9-11-01. Since her incarceration Paks have taken her to their heart and periodically erupt into demonstrations, while the government tries to find somebody to swap for her...

Soft-on-crime Los Angeles DA ripped after child molester faces little or no time
[NYPOST] Los Angeles’ top prosecutor is under fire for allowing a transgender woman who sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl as a minor to face a no-jail wrist-slap sentence.Hannah Tubbs, now 26, pleaded guilty to attacking the girl in a women’s bathroom at a Denny’s restaurant in 2014, two weeks before she turned 18, the Los Angeles Times reported.

LA District Attorney George Gascón filed charges against Tubbs in early 2020, not long after taking office.

But the progressive DA has refused to try juveniles as adults, citing studies that show adolescent brains aren’t fully developed until age 25 and claiming that young offenders can be rehabilitated in juvenile facilities.

At her sentencing later this month, Tubbs faces a short stint in a juvenile hall or probation, according to the LA Times, which reported that the Sheriff’s Department has offered to house her in an adult facility.

The potential punishment, however, has drawn backlash for being too lax.

"I would ask the public to reach out to Mr. Gascon and express their concerns and their outrage on a matter such as this involving a sexual predator," said Lt. Richard Ruiz of the LA County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau, Fox LA reported.

What's happening in the railyard is more likely classed as burglary, and as it probably isn't being done by white supremacists, Oath Keepers or white teenage boys crossing state lines, feds ain't innerested.
