{ wnd.com } ~ Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza contends American politics are at their most combustible since just before the Civil War... and he says President Trump must lead the effort to destroy “plantation politics” and end the practice of using the power of government to punish political enemies. D’Souza latest film, “Death of A Nation,” which opens Aug. 3, contends one of the greatest dangers Americans now face is the dummycrats-Democrats’ weaponization of government to exact political punishment on their enemies. He believes that’s the reason for the increased polarization in the U.S. and why he received a much harsher sentence for campaign finance violations than most other people. “I attribute this mainly to the gangster-ization of the dummycrats-Democratic Party. If I can cite my own case as an example. I was charged by the liar-nObama administration for exceeding campaign finance laws. They threw the weight of the federal government against me,” he said. “Jimmy Carter would not have done that. That was the old dummycrats-Democratic Party. But under liar-nObama and under liar-Hillary, you had this turn in which the weapons of the state are used against political opponents. There’s no way to compromise with that. It’s not like we can have a middle position on that. We actually have to just stop it,” said D’Souza...

{ clarionproject.org } ~ The House subcommittee on national security met in Washington on July 11 to reveal the threats that the Muslim Brotherhood poses to the U.S. ... and its interests and the ways to efficiently deal with this. The committee said the Brotherhood is a radical Islamic terror organization with a network of branches in more than 70 countries. It was entered the terror list of several nations including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The U.S. designated a few groups within the Brotherhood as terror organizations including Hamas. The UAE recognizes that the Brotherhood is at the top of the list of terror organizations and that it includes a few groups such as Islamic Relief, CAIR and the Muslim American Society. The UAE believes that targeting the agents of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates will weaken the Brotherhood’s efforts to fund-raise and recruit new members. While looking for control, the Brotherhood turns to violence or is seeking violent means. For this reason it must be designated as a terrorist entity...

{ wnd.com } ~ A teacher in a Georgia public school has been caught ordering her students to create a “dossier” on themselves... including private personal information such as DNA, and post them in the classroom. But Liberty Counsel, which wrote to the Coweta County School System in Newnan, Georgia, when parents complained about the invasion of privacy, says that while the district has confirmed the projects have been destroyed, many issues remain. Such as the fact the teacher,  Kima Brown, and district officials were presenters at a conference of the National Council of Teachers of English that promoted “a radical ‘social justice’ and critical theory agenda.” For example, Liberty Counsel said in a letter to the district, in which it explained it was representing parents in the district, the organization’s most recent conference included sessions titled...

{ clarionproject.org } ~ Investigators in Texas say they have finally solved the mysterious murder of Gelareh Bagherzadeh, a 30-year old Iranian activist and researcher at MD Anderson... Bagherzadeh was shot to death in her car in front of her family’s condo in Houston’s Galleria area in 2012. Investigators now say that after a meticulous investigation, they now know that Bagherzadeh’s murder was an honor killing carried out by her best friend’s family who accused her of helping to convert their daughter, Nesreen Irsan, to Christianity. After three years, enough evidence has been collected to charge Ali Irsan, an immigrant from Jordan, his wife Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh and their son Nasim with capital murder. Another daughter Nadia, will be charged with stalking her sister to try to discover where she and her husband were hiding. According to Devon Anderson, the district attorney handling the case, “Nesreen Irsan would not succumb to her father's complete domination and rule of her. And she left his home without his permission and went into hiding. "Nesreen married Coty Beavers, who was also murdered 10 months after Bagherzadeh. Bagherzadeh was speaking on her cell phone to her boyfriend, Beavers’ twin brother, when she was murdered...   https://clarionproject.org/honor-killing-houston-3-year-mystery-sol...

{ israelnationalnews.com } ~ Economy and Industry Minister Eli Cohen at the beginning of today's cabinet meeting declared responsibility for the Adam murder... on the Palestinian Authority and its leader. "The Palestinian Authority and Abbas have direct responsibility for the despicable attack that took place on Thursday, since they talked  about continued funding and subsidizing murderers," he said. "We must stop this incitement. Anyone who talks about a political settlement, about a desire to live in peace, cannot finance murderers and martyrs," he added. Minister Cohen was also asked by reporters to comment on Minister Yoav Galant's remarks regarding the possibility that his party leader, Moshe Kahlon of Kulanu, would serve as Prime Minister. "Minister Kahlon did important jobs, he was an excellent Finance Minister, and Communications Minister. In my opinion there's no reason why in the future he couldn't also serve in this position," Cohen said...   https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/249689

China Exposes the Recycling Scam's Dirty Secret
by Daniel Greenfield 

{ sultanknish.blogspot.com } ~ Every branch of government from Washington D.C. to your local town council had spent a fortune convincing people that recycling is a magical process that turns your old pizza boxes into new pizza boxes while creating those imaginary “green jobs” in the community. The reality was a lot dirtier.

All of America’s industries, including trash sorting, had been outsourced to China. 

And recycling is just a fancy lefty way of saying "trash." All that recycling, which children in progressive communities are taught to sort as the closest thing to a religious ritual, was really being dumped by the ton on dirty ships and sent over to China. We weren’t recycling it. The Chinese were. 

But now China is banning foreign recycling because it’s bad for the environment. 

Even the Communists got tired of sorting through the trash of American socialists. The recycling scam shipped garbage on dirty ships for dirty industries while pretending that they’re clean and green. 

There was never anything clean about it. And only the money it brought in was green. 

Now the recycling party’s over. Plastic recycling imports were banned early this year. Even fiber has trouble getting in to the People’s Republic. China’s mixed paper standards mean that most of the recycled cardboard and paper no longer passes muster. Instead it’s piling up in the United States. 

The recycling scam used to be an easy trade. China shipped its cheap products made from recycled American junk and scrap here. The empty vessels used to dump Chinese junk products on America were then filled up with tons of recycling for the return trip back to China at minimal cost. 

We sent them junk, they sent us junk. As the trade deficit grew, recycling was one of its many parasites. 

But China is out of the recycling dump business. And the recycling business depended on it. No other market pays what it did. And no other country has the industrial scale to handle this much recycled trash. The American market is flooded with recycling that no one wants and trash prices have imploded. 

And that’s having an immediate impact on the progressive recycling programs in the United States. 

California’s trash is going right back to landfills. 62% of exported materials used to go to China. But no more. California’s Department of Resources Recycling sent a letter cautioning that the “economics of recycling” had become “unfavorable” thus “challenging what recycling means to Californians.” 

It also warned recycling facilities that, “public health and safety should be their number one priority”. 

In Massachusetts, mountains of trash recycling are piling up and there’s talk that trucks may stop picking it up. In Pennsylvania, a "recycling crisis created by China" was blamed for a refusal to accept paper. In Seattle and Phoenix, recycling is going into landfills. Fees are going up in Portland. In Pasco, recycling was abandoned before its start. In a Kansas City plant, one out of four items is going into a landfill. In Sacramento, where all of California’s recycling rules are made, most recyclables no longer are. 

Fort Worth’s recycling brought in nearly a million last year. Now, it’s expected to cost $1.6 million. 

Recology used to be the epitome of the reinvented garbage hauler, merging San Francisco urban politics with progressive PR about ending waste. But zero landfill talk has given way to a blunter reality, “There’s no market for a lot of stuff in the blue bin. What we can’t recycle we take to a landfill.” 

Environmental regulations had already turned garbage collection in California into an expensive disaster, but this is an entirely unprecedented mess complete with mountains of trash and mountains of bills. 

Recycling has become economically unsustainable, but that doesn’t mean it’s going away. 

There’s too much money in environmental scams. And recycling is the biggest of them. The China crisis is being met with the three R’s of progressive policy making; rent-seeking, regulations and robbery. 

Some homeowners are already seeing higher trash collection fees. Those will only get worse. Especially on the West Coast where the China option helped dull the painful costs of recycling. But the costs will hit everyone as politicians resort to mandating higher levels of recycled content in everyday products. 

Want to sell soda, tissues or milk? Pay the politically connected recycling companies for the privilege of using their trash. As recycling costs go up, content mandates will force companies to create an artificial market. And the costs will be passed along to consumers who will have to pay more for everything. 

Like higher trash fees, tightened recycling regulations have also only begun to arrive. If you live in a blue state or city, expect to spend a lot more time sorting your trash, cleaning your cans and removing plastic from your envelopes so that they meet China’s new high standards for imported trash. 

China will no longer be sorting American trash. So progressives have decided that you will. 

We hear about the jobs that Americans won’t do. But this is a job that the Chinese won’t do. And that Americans will be forced to do for free. As China becomes more capitalist, America turns Communist. 

Or as a video on the Recology site prompts, “How to be a better recycle because China demands it.” 

Environmentalist municipalities have already begun rolling out condescending campaigns berating homeowners for their foolish and lazy recycling practices. ‘Wish cycling’ is a charmless portmanteau you will see more of. But what it really means is that homeowners who are already being taxed to death are being hectored by the environmental activists they subsidize who have never worked a day in their lives. 

Will all of that save the recycling scam? 

No, but it won’t matter. Most homeowners have no idea how much of their recyclables go into landfills anyway. The dirty business of municipal waste contracts will continue on uninterrupted. The extra fees and costs will be another one of the left’s thousand cuts that are bleeding the middle class to death. 

Homeowners will be taxed harder so that crony cash can flow to even bigger recycling operations. You will pay more for everything you buy to subsidize politically connected, but uneconomical enterprises. 

Recycling is not a reality, but an idea. Like Communism, it can never be achieved, but must be aspired to. 

Smaller towns and cities will be forced to dump their recycling programs. And more conservative areas will be dissuaded from getting on board as the profit margins from recycling turn into pools of red ink. But blue states and cities will never abandon recycling. And if Washington D.C. goes blue again, the dictates of crony socialism and green fanaticism will roll out new compulsory standards nationwide. 

Recycling is in crisis. But the environmental scam is too big to fail. 

The ships carrying most of the blue state and city “green” trash will no longer be allowed into China. But there are other countries and continents desperate enough to take their socialist trash. 

The dirty secret of recycling is that it depended on the willingness of Third World countries to greenwash our trash so that progressives could pretend that their moral garbage was saving the planet. 

The smaller countries of Southeast Asia don’t have the capacity to take up China’s slack, but the People’s Republic has progressively been colonizing Africa. Some African countries were already being used to recycle and dump e-waste. The shipping won’t be as cheap, but recycling’s next stop is likely to be Africa where environmentalists will turn it into a trash heap… to protect the environment.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Would like to discuss this and a Russian matter.

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
