Witness: Trump Tower Meeting Was ‘Boring’ Policy Presentation 
by Aaron Klein
{ breitbart.com } ~ A Russian businessman who was present at the infamous, brief meeting at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 has provided the most extensive publicly documented description... yet about what allegedly transpired inside the room in which Russian nationals met with Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials. Irakly “Ike” Kaveladze is senior vice president at Crocus Group, the real estate development firm run by Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov, whose associate and son were both reportedly involved in setting up the Trump Tower meeting. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that was recently made public, Kaveladze related that no one at the meeting presented themselves there as representing the Russian government, no one discussed hacked emails and no conversation took place that could possibly be characterized as “collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign. In the testimony, reviewed in full by Breitbart News, Kaveladze asserted that the meeting was an informational presentation that focused largely the Magnitsky Act, which sanctions Russian officials accused of involvement in the death of a Russian tax accountant. In his testimony, he further related how he called the meeting “boring” when describing it afterwards...

Julian Assange Asked To Testify In Front Of Senate 
by Aaron Kesel
{ activistpost.com } ~ The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has been asked to testify before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee as part of their Russia investigation... according to a letter signed by Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) posted by the WikiLeaks Twitter account. The letter was delivered to Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. “As part of the inquiry, the Committee requests that you make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location,” the letter reads. WikiLeaks says their legal team is “considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard,” after which the whistleblower organization added a tweet linking to a list of 10 dummycrats-Democratic senators who demanded in late June that Assange’s asylum be revoked in violation of international law...

Appalachian Justice: Here’s How WV
Handles an Out-of-Control Supreme Court
by BEN MARQUIS
{ westernjournal.com } ~ The issue of corruption among elected officials is one that enrages many American citizens as far too often... it seems that the “powers that be” are willing to let suspected corrupt officials slide or slink away quietly without ever being held accountable to the people. However, in at least one instance it appears that won’t be the case. The four sitting justices on West Virginia’s state Supreme Court are collectively facing 14 counts of impeachment for alleged corrupt activities, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail. The 14 articles of impeachment against the justices were approved on Tuesday by the West Virginia House Judiciary Committee and include such charges as corruption, neglect of duty and “unnecessary and lavish” spending of taxpayer money, among other allegations. The articles of impeachment will soon be submitted to the House for a vote, and if they obtain a majority will then proceed to the Senate. If two-thirds of the senators approve the impeachment articles, a trial will commence that would require another two-thirds majority for conviction, at which point the justices would be removed from the bench and barred from ever seeking public office in the state again. “It’s a sad day, and it certainly isn’t a cause for celebration,” Judiciary Chairman John Shott said Tuesday, according to the Gazette-Mail. The four justices charged under the articles of impeachment, which stem from violations of the impeachable offenses listed in Section 9, Article 4 of the West Virginia Constitution, include Chief Justice Margaret Workman (four counts) and Justices Robin Davis (four counts), Allen Loughry (eight counts) and Beth Walker (two counts)...

Senate releases 5,700 documents
from Kavanaugh's time in Bush White House
by Gabby Morrongiello
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released a trove of documents on Thursday from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's tenure... as associate White House counsel to former President George W. Bush. The document dump, which contained nearly 6,000 pages, came a day after ranking dummycrats-Democrats on the Judiciary Committee filed a series of Freedom of Information Act requests to access records from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House. Senate Minority Leader Chuck clown-Schumer, D-N.Y., has repeatedly accused Republicans of providing insufficient material involving the Supreme Court nominee ahead of his confirmation hearing this fall. According to Grassley's office, the total number of documents planned for release exceeds 125,000 pages. The Judiciary Committee moved to make the records public after receiving them on a confidential basis from the National Archives and Records Administration last week. Normally, records from Kavanaugh's time in the White House would be protected by the Presidential Records Act, which allows former presidents to keep their White House files secret for up to 12 years after leaving office...   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/senate-releases...

Illegal Alien Alleged Serial Killer Caught in Miami, Florida 
by Michael W. Chapman 
{ cnsnews.com } ~ Although the liberal media are ignoring the case, an illegal alien from Honduras was recently arrested in Miami, Fla., and charged with the murder of two women... When apprehended by Miami-Dade police, the suspect, Juan Carlos Hernandez-Caseres, 37, "confessed to both murders," reported the Miami Herald.  Hernandez-Caseres has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. The victims were Ann Farrin, 41, and Neidy Roche, 39, both of whom were prostitutes, according to the police. Hernandez-Caseres picked up Farrin in his car for sex on June 13 "but sometime during intercourse he became 'enraged' and punched her in the throat and neck," he told the police, as reported in the Herald. In surveillance camera footage at Northwest 38th and Northwest 37th street, Hernandez-Caseres's dark, four-door car is seen pulling to the side of the road, the driver gets out and opens the passenger door, and then the driver pulls a body out and dumps it on the street. That apparently was the body of Ann Farrin...   https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/illegal-alien-serial...

dummycrats-Democratic socialism is an oxymoron
by Dan Popp

A society which is socialist cannot also be democratic, in the sense of guaranteeing individual freedom. – Milton Friedman

{ renewamerica.com } ~ With all the folks recently declaring themselves "dummycrats-democratic socialists," I thought it would be worthwhile to examine why this is another assault on language by the barbarian left.

Some of us live in reality, and try to understand our experiences through the template of reason. More and more are trying to live in a fantasy world. Logic and honest language are enemies of that world. The fundamental building block of logic, as Aristotle laid it down, is that a thing can't be both itself and its opposite in the same way, at the same time. 

The phrase " dummycrats-democratic socialism" violates this basic principle of rational thought. Here, courtesy of Dictionary.com, are the definitions of our root terms.

Democracy: government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.
 
Socialism: a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

Here are some of the ways that democracy and socialism are inherently contradictory:

Locus of power

Socialism, as defined above, puts control "in the community as a whole." But in a democracy "the supreme power is vested in the people." This may seem like two ways of saying the same thing if you've spent your formative years under socialist indoctrination. In principle, however, they're opposites. The "community" of the socialists means everyone, collectively. But the ultimate rulers of the democracy are individuals, not the group. In practice, since rule by everyone is impossible a fantasy, socialist countries invariably are ruled by a few central planners, who often oppose the group's wishes.

Ownership of property

A democracy is set up to protect the rights of individuals, particularly property rights. Socialism is set up for the express purpose of nullifying property rights. Its motto is "You didn't build that!" The state owns everything, and the state will determine what, if anything, you get.

Yes, a democracy can degenerate into a rights-violating mob more about that later, but that is not its purpose, whereas the purpose of a socialist government is to relieve you of the fruits of your labor by means of violence.

Concept of citizenship

If democracy means "rule of the people," in practice it must be the rule of the citizens. In ancient Athens, it was the adult males of the polis; in early America, it was the landowners. The implementation of democracy, including the republican variety, requires a clear delineation between citizen and non-citizen. "Who may vote?" is a burning question. "Who may exercise this personal political power?" Certainly not foreigners or potential enemies of the society. Only those who have attained a certain age, perhaps who have a personal stake in the well-being of the community.

The fantasy of borderless political zones that make no distinction between citizens and trespassers may be compatible with socialism, but it is inimical to democracy.

Value of free speech

Democracy requires an uninhibited exchange of ideas. Socialism because it is a failed fantasy requires opposing ideas to be squelched. Exhibits 1 through infinity: suppression of conservative speech and speakers on college campuses, currently the temples of socialism.

Other rights protected in democracies are turned upside down where socialism dominates. To give just one more example, my God tells me, "You shall not steal." How safe are my religious rights in a political system based on theft? 

"But what about countries with socialist 'safety nets,' run by the will of the people – like America? Can we not correctly call them both democratic and socialist?"

Let me put the question to you: What if I were to say, "Here is a healthy man with cancer?" "Wait a minute," you would say. "Is he healthy or does he have cancer?" You would not call him a healthy-sick fellow. Just as cancer is not compatible with health but drives out health, so the malignancy of state robbery drives wellness from the body politic. Yes, it's undeniable that the U.S. is afflicted by many socialist lesions, and as they continue to grow they must eventually kill the patient. That does not make America a hybrid democratic-socialist state. It makes us a former republic, a sick and wasting society.

One of the problems with schemes of popular rule is that they're susceptible to the contagion of covetousness. Hear wise old Ben Franklin: "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." The next stage after socialism isn't communist paradise, as Marx predicted. It is death, as our Founders predicted.

Here in the real world, there are no sunshiny nights, no Christian atheists, and no dummycrats-democratic socialists. Abusers of language are enemies of humanity.

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
