-Lurid Crime Tales-
Former Trump aide posts online a searchable database containing a huge trove of more than 120,000 emails from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop, calling them 'a modern day Rosetta Stone of white and blue collar crime'
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • Garrett Ziegler, 26, who worked under Peter Navarro in Trump's office of Trade and Manufacturing uploaded 128,775 emails

  • Using the name Marco Polo, Ziegler described the emails as ‘a modern Rosetta Stone of white and blue collar crime’

  • Included in the posts is one from Biden's former business partner James Gilliar which talked of 'H' holding 10% of the equity in a Chinese deal 'for the Big Guy'

  • That has widely been assumed to mean that Joe Biden would benefit from the deal

  • Nearly 15,000 emails, that DailyMail.com has verified, are missing from Ziegler's database

-Great Cultural Revolution
Biden tells Americans to reject the 'lie' of replacement theory, tears into those who spread it for 'power' and 'profit', calls white supremacy 'poison' and pleads to get assault rifles 'off our streets' after Buffalo gunman killed 10 in racist rampage
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • President Joe Biden called on all Americans to reject the 'lie' of the 'great replacement' conspiracy theory

  • I call on all Americans to reject the lie, and I condemn those who spread the lie for power, political gain, and for profit,' Biden said

  • 'White supremacy is a poison. It's a poison,' he said

  • Joe and Jill Biden are in Buffalo where they paid their respects at the Tops Market Memorial

  • Jill Biden, dressed in black, carried a large bouquet of white flowers

  • The first couple didn't speak as they bowed their heads at the makeshift memorial, strew with balloons, flowers, candles, and homemade signs

  • They held a private visit with victims' families and local authorities

  • President Biden will also deliver remarks at a nearby community center where he is expected to decry racially motivated violence

  • 'The President will call this despicable act for what it is: terrorism motivated by a hateful and perverse ideology that tears at the soul of our nation,' a White House official said

  • Payton Gendron, 18, faces and was charged with one count of murder and officials said they would weigh additional charges in the coming days

#1  Domestic baby formula production is one of the most regulated and subsidized products in America, distorting the market so grotesquely that it has centralized around just a few companies, essentially an oligopoly. This crony capitalist market concentration left the supply vulnerable when Abbott, one of the manufacturers, had to issue a recall due to a potential contamination issue. (Which the Food and Drug Administration was warned about months in advance and did nothing about).

Government Corruption
Prosecutors seek jail term for Capitol rioter who wore ‘Camp Auschwitz’ sweatshirt
[IsraelTimes] Robert Keith Packer told FBI
...Formerly one of the world's premier criminal investigation organizations, something for a nation to be proud of. Now it's a political arm of the Deep State oligarchy that is willing to trump up charges, suppress evidence, or take out insurance policies come election time...
agents he wore antisemitic sweatshirt "because he was cold,’ expressed no remorse for taking part in storming of US Capitol


Federal prosecutors on Monday recommended a prison sentence of more than two months for a Virginia man who stormed the US Capitol wearing a "Camp Auschwitz" sweatshirt.

Photographs of Robert Keith Packer wearing the sweatshirt with the antisemitic message went viral after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. When FBI agents asked him why he wore the sweatshirt, he "fatuously" replied "because I was cold," prosecutors said in their sentencing memo.

"Without expressing any remorse for being part of the rioting that day, Packer continually said it was ’hard to tell’ which side people were on," prosecutors wrote.

More than 100 coppers were maimed when a mob of Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
supporters attacked the Capitol while Congress was holding a joint session to certify President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S., who gives the term geriatric a bad name. He blames Afghans for losing Afghanistan....
’s 2020 electoral victory.

US District Judge Carl Nichols is scheduled to sentence Packer on May 23. He faces a maximum sentence of six months imprisonment after pleading guilty in January to a misdemeanor count of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

Prosecutors asked Nichols to sentence Packer to 75 days of incarceration followed by three years of probation and 60 hours of community service.

The words "Camp Auschwitz" were above an image of a human skull on Packer’s sweatshirt. It also bore the phrase "Work Brings Freedom," a rough translation of the German words above the entrance gate to Auschwitz, the concentration camp in Poland where Nazis killed more than 1 million men, women and kiddies.

Packer, 57, of Newport News, Virginia, is a self-employed pipe fitter and a nonlicensed plumber. Prosecutors say he has a lengthy criminal record, with approximately 21 convictions, mostly for drunken driving and other motor vehicle violations.

Packer told the FBI that he was about 10 to 12 feet away from a rioter, Ashli Babbitt, when a police officer fatally shot her.

"He told the agents he heard the shot and saw her fall back from the window she was trying to climb through," prosecutors wrote.

FBI agents arrested Packer a week after the riot. He has remained free pending his sentencing hearing.

Packer was evasive and minimized his actions when FBI agents interviewed him, according to prosecutors.

"He was more interested in relaying how he received hate mail and how he was ’hounded’ by the media for interviews," they wrote.

Secretary Mayorkas: Title 42 Going Away Does Not Mean the Border Is Open
[Townhall] Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas assured the American people on Tuesday during a visit to the Rio Grande Valley that his agency is preparing for the expected influx of illegal immigrants if Title 42 officially goes away next Monday.

While still slated to end on May 23, a judge will make a determination whether Title 42 stays or goes as part of a lawsuit that was filed to keep it in place.

"We are preparing for the end of Title 42 based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention decision. That does not mean that the border is open beginning on May 23. We continue to enforce the laws of this country. We continue to remove individuals who do not qualify for relief under the laws of this country," Mayorkas explained.

Mayorkas said once Title 42 is removed, they will be able to put punishments on individuals who illegally cross the southern border and do not qualify for asylum, instead of rapid expulsion that does not carry any penalties.

When a reporter asked what message he hoped to send to migrants with the day's event, Mayorkas said the message is to not trust the smugglers.

Home Front: Politix
Canceled: Senate Dems Nix ‘Disinformation' Hearing After Embarrassing Jankowicz Videos Surface
[Free Beacon] Senate Democrats abruptly canceled a hearing at which President Joe Biden's new disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz was expected to testify, a decision made after embarrassing videos posted by the self-proclaimed "Mary Poppins of disinformation" sparked a political firestorm.

Senate Democrats planned to hold a May 10 hearing on "disinformation, misinformation, and malinformation," just a couple of weeks after Biden tapped Jankowicz to head his administration's newly created Disinformation Governance Board. Democratic leaders were reluctant to have Jankowicz face Republican questioning, however, prompting them to nix the hearing, three Senate offices told the Washington Free Beacon.

"They yanked it when the entire ’disinformation board' blew up," one senior aide told the Free Beacon. "They realized there's no way they could reschedule without Nina Jankowicz being called to testify."

The Senate's Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee had the hearing scheduled since April, but the optics of the hearing in light of Jankowicz's negative press led to its abrupt cancellation. Such hearings are normally sleepy events on Capitol Hill, but the controversy surrounding Jankowicz would have made the hearing a spectacle. The hearing would have been an opportunity for Republicans to question not only Jankowicz but also the creation of the board in the first place. The administration has refused to answer questions about its decision to give the disinformation post to Jankowicz, who has drawn criticism for falsely labeling Hunter Biden's laptop a "Russian influence op" and for her flamboyant TikTok videos.

Canceling Senate hearings on such short notice is out of the ordinary and typically does not happen unless a witness or expert falls ill or has a last-minute scheduling conflict. The disinformation hearing, according to multiple Senate offices, had been scheduled since early April and was planned for May 10.

Impartial Jury?
[RedState] The trial of Michael Sussmann, a Hillary Clinton apparatchik who spread false conspiracy theories about Donald Trump to the FBI, begins on Tuesday. That follows the selection of the jury, which is presenting new challenges for John Durham’s first major prosecution in his investigation of the Russian collusion hoax.

Sussmann’s prior attempts to get the case dismissed failed miserably after Durham expertly responded to the contradictory arguments presented. Going forward, though, the final decision will be in the hands of a jury that includes a Hillary Clinton donor and a woman who claims she can’t be impartial regarding Donald Trump.
Then why is she on the Jury?
Many of the members of the broader jury pool, as well as some selected for the jury itself, expressed strong disdain for former President Donald Trump and/or support for Clinton. Most said they hadn’t heard of the Sussmann case until the judge told them about it last week.

"I remembered that the 2016 election was kind of a mess and that there were a lot of shenanigans," one of the selected jurors told the court. She said she "strongly" disliked Trump and that she didn’t think she could be impartial if the case was about someone on his team but noted that "if it’s not directly about Trump," then she could be impartial.

The obvious problem here is that the case is about Donald Trump. No, it’s not a Trump associate on trial, but the entire basis of the case is that Sussmann went to the FBI and lied to them about the Alfa Bank conspiracy theory, which asserted that the former president had a secret server communicating with the Russians.

On what planet can a juror who outright says they have a strong animus against Trump be impartial in judging someone who’s on trial for actively trying to destroy Trump with falsities? It’s absolutely insane that this woman made it into the final jury pool.

She’s not the only one, though. Other jurors also revealed that they donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and/or donated to Joe Biden in 2020. Given that most people never donate to any political campaign for president, it seems unreasonable that doing so wouldn’t be disqualifying. There are plenty of other possible jurors to choose from who aren’t overtly political to the point where they gave money to Clinton.

Further, the jury pool itself is comprised of 11 women and only five men. Why does that matter? Because women, specifically liberal women like you’d find in Washington, DC, represent one of the strongest demographics for the Democrat Party.
I see an aquittal.

#6  This just in: On the first day of the trial of Hillary’s lawyer, Michael Sussmann, the Durham team’s opening statement and its first witnesses attempted to walk a fine line to show that the Democratic National Committee lawyer used his unique position to get the FBI to investigate Trump for secretly communicating with a Russian bank to get to Putin.
Durham’s team argues that the FBI was duped into treating seriously the Trump-is-a-Russian-secret-agent-with-super-secret-ties-to-a-Moscow-bank story that the Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer brought to it. They will argue in court that if the FBI had known it was Hillary’s oppo-research, they would have dismissed it out of hand.
I hope ya'll don't have high blood pressure. This whole thing is a joke.

#7  /\ They will argue in court that if the FBI had known it was Hillary’s oppo-research, they would have dismissed it out of hand.

Accepted the Sussmann (Clinton operative) reporting without checking his sources did they? Once the BS was discovered, the FBI continued to pursue (doubled down) on the issue.

They're sticking with their "monitoring Carter Page" (D.C. intelligence community insider) and sometimes Trump Campaign worker story.

Sorry, I'm not buying any of it.

#11  Notably,Elias mentioned Jake Sullivan as someone at the Clinton Campaign who knew about the Trump/Russia research (though there is uncertainty as to whether Sullivan knew about Fusion’s activities). Elias would give the campaign these updates.

A brief aside: Jake Sullivan’s wife is Margaret Goodlander - who serves as counsel to Attorney General Merrick Garland. We understand that she has not recused herself from anything having to do with the Special Counsel’s investigation. We further understand that Goodlander is keeping close tabs on Durham’s investigation. We’ll report on that down the road…

Anyway, Elias also testified that the Clinton Campaign paid them (Perkins Coie) a “flat fee” for their legal services. Why is this important? Because it explains why Sussmann would block bill the Clinton Campaign (see tweet below). (“Block billing” is having a multi-hour entry with a generalized description. Example: “6.5 hours on confidential project.) For flat fee work, attorneys are generally allowed block billing because the client isn’t paying the hourly rate.
