FBI’s Closed Door Testimony Points to More Wrongdoing than Just Spying by 
scumbag/liar-nObama Officials
by  It’s common knowledge that the evidence presented to the FISA Court as reason to investigate Donald Trump and members of his campaign was from Trump hater foreign spy Christopher Steele... We all know by now that Steele wrote up the dossier based on things he read online from a CNN message board. We also know the FBI never checked out any of Steele’s claims before presenting the information as “facts” to the FISA court. We know now, that this kind of thing was commonplace under the scumbag/liar-nObama administration. Now that Attorney General, William Barr had said in front of Congress that he believes the scumbag/liar-nObama administration spied on Trump’s campaign team and others illegally, the truth is finally starting to work its way to the surface. As the media pours over the dirty cop-Mueller report and attempts to defame AG Barr and anyone else who tries to tell the truth, transcripts from a closed door hearing with the FBI’s former Counterintelligence Director, Bill Priestap in front of Congress reveals way juicier details, including allegations of more than just spying for scumbag/liar-nObama officials. Priestap’s testimony tells the story of an scumbag/liar-nObama administration that deliberately broke the law in the way it spied on Donald Trump. Priestap’s story, which was provided to Congress in a closed-door session in the summer of 2018, contains a litany of abuses...
William Barr Misled Everyone 
About the dirty cop-Mueller Report
by James Risen  
{} ~ AG William Barr is coming under increasing fire from congressional Democrats for statements he made before the release of the dirty cop-Mueller report... Critics say the remarks purposefully downplayed how damaging special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s report was for President Donald Trump. House Judiciary Committee Chair scumbag liar-Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Friday morning that his committee has issued a subpoena to the Justice Department to obtain the full, unredacted report. The subpoena demands that the Justice Department turn over the report by May 1. scumbag liar-Nadler also asked dirty cop-Mueller to testify before his committee. “It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings,” scumbag liar-Nadler said. The subpoena comes in the wake of the Justice Department’s release of a redacted version of the dirty cop-Mueller report on Thursday. The redacted version was made public only after Barr gave a press conference early in the morning, in which he sought to claim that the report effectively exonerated Trump and those around him. That press conference followed an earlier statement  Barr issued on March 24, in the form of a four-page letter that claimed to summarize dirty cop-Mueller’s findings. Critics said both his press conference and the four-page letter were part of Barr’s attempt to whitewash the dirty cop-Mueller report’s findings and spin the public narrative about the report before it was actually released. In a joint statement Thursday after the report’s release, House Speaker Nancy Pulosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag-Schumer, D-N.Y., charged that Barr “deliberately distorted significant portions of Special Counsel dirty cop-Mueller’s report.” They added that dirty cop-Mueller’s report “paints a disturbing picture of a president who has been weaving a web of deceit, lies and improper behavior and acting as if the law doesn’t apply to him. But if you hadn’t read the report and listened only to Mr. Barr, you wouldn’t have known any of that because Mr. Barr has been so misleading.”... Misleading, you got to be kidding when the documents where made public.
Stolen Archives Show the 
True History of Russia Collusion
by Daniel Ashman } ~ Numerous examples are provided in a soon to be released book, Judgment in Moscow, by the heroic Soviet dissident, Vladimir Bukovsky. He makes use of extensive first hand documents that he personally stole from Russia's Central Committee (C.C.) archives...
 which have never before been accessible to Americans. The media must be tripping over themselves to see what Bukovsky reveals...right? Well, not so much. Because the C.C. documents demonstrate, irrefutably, that the American Establishment was the one willingly and repeatedly colluding with Russia — an inconvenient fact. This is history that the mainstream media don't want Americans to know. Bukovsky's book was actually first published over two decades ago in many languages and countries. But not in America. Random House said it would publish it but then demanded that Bukovsky fundamentally alter its content — downplay the infiltration of the West by Russia! Show how insignificant Russian actions were! — that Bukovsky had to walk away. Afterward, no American publisher would touch it. That's especially remarkable, given Bukovsky's accomplished life. He spent over a decade in gulags, psychiatric wards, and labor camps and wrote a worldwide bestseller on it, To Build a Castle: My Life as a Dissenter. He then went on to be an adviser to President Reagan and a personal friend of Prime Minister Thatcher. Imagine that! After such an extraordinary life, American publishers tried to lecture Bukovsky about what ideas on American-Russian relations were permissible. They really did not want to talk about Russian collusion up until just recently...
A Flock of F-15X Eagles
by Andrew E. Harrod } ~ The F-15 Eagle fighter, which first entered United States Air Force (USAF) service in 1976, will continue to be an essential element of America’s air superiority force into the 2040s... Accordingly, the Department of Defense needs to procure the F-15X, the latest version of this fourth-generation fighter that will remain a vital weapons system even in an era of stealthy fifth-generation fighters like the scarce F-22. The website Warzone has examined how a “quiet USAF inquiry” prompted the F-15X, not Boeing’s commercial interests Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, a former Boeing executive, has recused himself from F-15X decisions. Previously USAF leaders like Air Force secretary Heather Wilson “had been adamant about only buying stealthy 5th generation fighters” and had “myopically focused on” USAF’s F-35. The USAF procured its last fourth-generation fighters, F-15s and F-16s, in 2001. Warzone’s report contrasts that an “all stealth force sounds good, but in reality, it is fiscally unsustainable and not beneficial, and even a hindrance,” for many USAF missions. In particular, the Air Force, which had 134 fighter squadrons in 1991 during the Gulf War, wants to expand a current strength of 55 fighter squadrons to 60. USAF’s Air Combat Command General James “Mike” Holmes has therefore emphasized the cost-saving need for an appropriate procurement mix of fourth- and fifth-generation fighters. Warzone’s article noted that the F-15X “could play a pivotal role in supporting many of the most buzz-worthy air combat concepts being discussed by USAF today.” Already the “F-15 is the heavy lifter” among American fighters and the F-15X’s “crazy weapons hauling capabilities” could “carry a whopping 22 air-to-air missiles.” By comparison, the USAF’s current single- and two-seater F-15C/Ds can carry eight air-to-air missiles, and F-15s recently ordered by Saudi Arabia 12, while the F-35 in stealth-mode has only six to eight weapons carried internally. Therefore a Popular Mechanics article has noted that the F-15X could act as a “glorified missileer, launching missiles on cue from its stealthier cousins.”  The F-15X could also carry a range of large weapons systems like lasers or standoff tactical jammers to support stealth aircraft. Additionally, the F-15’s combat radius of 1,150 miles versus 870 for the F-35 means that the F-15 “can fly long-range missions while the F-35 is much more a tactical aircraft optimized for relatively short-range missions.”...
Greece: A "No-Go" Zone in Athens?
by Maria Polizoidou } ~ An assault on members of the Hellenic Coast Guard during a drug raid in Athens on April 4 highlights a growing problem in Greece... Some opponents of the far-left Syriza-led government attribute the increasing drug traffic in the country to a dangerous alliance between political anarchists and illegal immigrants. The anarchists might be considered the Greek equivalent of the "far left". According to Reuters: "Many self-proclaimed anarchists - the word stems from the Greek 'anarchia' or absence of authority - say they are pacifist, but certain groups have few qualms about using violence. Six years of recession have fuelled a new wave of left-wing militancy, according to officials, anarchists and court testimony." The April 4 incident was sparked when Greek authorities arrested a Syrian national on a ferry at the Piraeus Port; he was carrying 200 grams of marijuana, which he said he had purchased from an Egyptian drug dealer in the Exarchia neighborhood of Athens. Eight members of the Coast Guard and a prosecutor immediately went to Exarchia to raid the supplier's apartment, located in one of 50 buildings in the neighborhood that are occupied by illegal-immigrant squatters. When the officers and prosecutor arrived at the building, they arrested two female suspects, a Greek-Australian and a Syrian national, and confiscated 1.5 kilograms of cannabis and a Glock pistol. On their way out of the building, the officers were  ambushed by a masked mob, wearing helmets and bulletproof vests, and armed with knives, clubs and assault rifles. Two Coast Guard officers were stabbed in the attack, and their weapons taken...  
Speech and Trademarks on Trial
Political Editors:  On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in Iancu v. Brunetti, a case concerned with free-speech rights in relation to trade marking. At issue “is the 1946 Lanham Act’s prohibition on trademarks deemed ‘scandalous’ and ‘immoral,’” The Wall Street Journal explained. “The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 2014 denied a trademark for Erik Brunetti’s streetwear line FUCT — short for Friends U Can’t Trust — after concluding that the brand ‘objectifies women and offers degrading examples of extreme misogyny’ and is ‘lacking in taste.’”

Brunetti’s argument is that the Lanham Act should be struck down as unconstitutional because its prohibition against “scandalous” and “immoral” trademarks is an affront to Americans’ First Amendment liberties.

Malcolm Stewart, the lawyer representing the government, argued that the refusal by the government to offer trademark protection was not a restriction of free speech; rather it was the government simply deciding not to promote certain speech. Stewart, who refrained from saying the brand’s name, said it was “the equivalent of the profane past participle form of a well-known word of profanity and perhaps the paradigmatic word of profanity in our language.”

A point the justices made was that irrespective of whether Brunetti was denied a trademark registration, it did not prevent him from using the name to register his business. However, not having a registered trademark does make it more difficult for him to go after anyone who would seek to counterfeit his products.

Finally, both Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Neil Gorsuch noted the apparent inconsistent application of the Lanham Act, given that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted registration to “PHUKIT.” Gorsuch stated, “There are shocking numbers of ones granted and ones refused” that “do look remarkably similar.” He said that it was as if the cases were decided via a “flip of a coin.”

Based upon the inconstant manner in which the Lanham Act has been applied, it appears likely that the justices may indeed throw out the rather dubious “scandalous” and “immoral” prohibition.  ~The Patriot Post

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
