Progressive PAC Linked to commie-Ocasio-
Cortez Escalates Attacks Against DCCC
by Todd Shepherd
freebeacon.com } ~ Justice Democrats, a PAC that helped send commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Congress in 2018, launched another attack against the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee... one of the biggest and most important establishment fundraising operations for House Democrats. In a fundraising email, Justice Democrats blasted the DCCC for accepting corporate PAC money, suggesting it had corrupted the committee and some members of the party on policy issues such as health care and the Green New Deal:The email comes roughly one week after Justice Democrats launched a website, DCCCBlacklist.com, in protest of a new policy by the DCCC of refusing to do business with vendors who work with any candidate running a primary challenge to an incumbent Democrat. "The DCCC is using their financial leverage to intimidate and blacklist many hardworking people in our movement in a blatant attempt to protect a handful of out-of-touch incumbents," the website says. "We're launching The Blacklist to fight back and provide potential primary challengers with a database of go-to vendors, organizations, and consultants who will continue to support efforts to usher in a new generation of leaders into the Democratic Party." The fundraising email is notable because it goes a step beyond the main grievances listed on the website and accuses the DCCC of being corrupted by campaign donations, and pandering "to the interests of Medicare-for-all sabotaging, and climate denying corporations," amounting to a "betrayal of our Democratic and progressive values." All of which points to the continuing notion that House Speaker Nancy Pulosi (D., Calif.,) has remained unable to corral the progressive flank in the Democrat caucus, something she has struggled with since the new Congress was sworn in in January...

Worse than Watergate
by John Leonard
americanthinker.com } ~ For most of my lifetime, “Watergate” has been used as the measuring stick for political corruption. What exactly was the Watergate scandal?... On June 17, 1972, five men were arrested for burglarizing the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D. C. It was never alleged that President Richard M. Nixon knew about the burglary prior to the attempt, but that he tried to use the power of the presidency to obstruct justice in order to protect members of his administration and his reelection committee from facing criminal charges. Ultimately, Nixon was forced to resign in order to avoid congressional impeachment and a trial in the Senate. The great irony is that Nixon was going to crush McGovern in the general election without any illegal help. Nothing that could have been stolen from the Democrats could have helped the Republican Party win any bigger in 1972 -- Nixon claimed 520 electoral votes and carried 49 states. The break-in was stupid and unnecessary. And most importantly, it was illegal. Sure, the people initially apprehended were only a couple of Cuban refugees and a pair of former CIA spooks, but James W. McCord was with them -- a security coordinator for the Republican National Committee and Committee for the Re-election of the President. Investigators were eventually able to connect those five to G. Gordon Liddy and Howard Hunt, and those seven men were indicted by a grand jury on September 15, 1972. Over the course of the Watergate scandal, 69 people were eventually indicted, and 48 were found guilty. Nixon was pardoned by President Gerald Ford on September 8, 1974, officially putting an end to the whole sordid matter. Since that fateful turn of events, political scandals are typically compared to Watergate and inevitably judged to have fallen short. Subsequent scandals have often been labeled as such by merely appending “gate” as a suffix: thus we’ve had “Climategate” for the global warming email scandal, as one example. In fact, there’s a whole Wikipedia page devoted to organizing and listing all the scandals that have been designated as such simply by slapping the word “gate” at the end of it...  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/04/worse_than_waterga...

CIVIL WAR: Corporate-Backed Neolib 
Establishment Mobilizes to Destroy comie-Bernie
by Andrew Stiles
freebeacon.com } ~ Socialist insurgent commie-Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) continues to dominate early Democratic primary polls among candidates who are actually running... His candidacy is a mortal threat to the party's dominant neoliberal establishment, which is why it is mobilizing to destroy him. The opening salvo comes courtesy of Think Progress, the activist arm of the Center for American Progress, a corporate-funded neoliberal think tank and Democratic Party powerbroker. The militant blog, which spent the entire 2016 election shilling for an unapologetic wealth maven scumbag/liar-(Hillary Clinton, has produced a video attacking commie-Sanders for, of all things, the size of his bank account. The video paints commie-Sanders as a hypocrite, accusing him of altering his signature attack line against "millionaires and billionaires" after the candidate reportedly became a millionaire thanks to the two best-selling books he's published since the 2016 election. The accompanying Think Progress blog post is rife with condescension. "It’s all very off-brand and embarrassing, but Sen.commie- Bernie Sanders is a millionaire," reads the opening line. commie-Bernie's class warfare shtick has become "quite the lucrative enterprise," which is "a bit awkward" for a candidate "who has spent the better part of his career saying ‘millionaires' like it's a slur." This is the bizarro world we're living in. Soon enough, the neolibs will be attacking commie-Sanders for refusing to join the Koch-approved establishment consensus more cheap labor, please! on immigration. It makes a lot more sense when you consider the Democratic establishment's desire to keep corporate money flowing into its coffers...

ICC Rejects Request for Investigation 
Into U.S. ‘War Crimes’ in Afghanistan
by Nic Rowan
freebeacon.com } ~ The International Criminal Court rejected petitions for it to investigate alleged war crimes committed by the United States in Afghanistan, the BBC reports... ICC judges notified the media in a press release that because of Afghanistan's regional instability and the unwillingness of local investigators to cooperate, such an investigation "would not serve the interests of justice." This update comes just a week after the United States revoked entry visas to ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, who had been examining on the court's behalf the possibility of war crimes committed in Afghanistan by the United States. This reversal is thought to be a response to that revocation, according to the BBC. The ICC has been investigating abuses and war crimes committed in conflicted Middle Eastern regions for more than a decade. It began its formal examination into Afghanistan in November 2017. According to the press release, although judges believe there is "a reasonable basis" to suspect that crimes occurred, right now the political and social state of Afghanistan "make the prospects for a successful investigation and prosecution extremely limited." "Accordingly, it is unlikely that pursuing an investigation would result in meeting the objectives listed by the victims favoring the investigation," the press release continued. The press release also stressed that the constantly changing political situation in Afghanistan makes it any sort of investigation a waste of resources, at the present moment. "The Chamber noted the time elapsed since the opening of the preliminary examination in 2006 and the political changing scene in Afghanistan since then, the lack of cooperation that the Prosecutor has received and which is likely to go scarcer should an investigation be authorized hampering the chances of successful investigation and prosecution, as well as the need for the Court to use its resources prioritizing activities that would have better chances to succeed," the press release said...   https://freebeacon.com/national-security/icc-rejects-war-crimes-inv...

The Assange Arrest
Political Editors:  “WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was forcibly bundled out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and into a waiting British police van on Thursday,” reports the Associated Press, “setting up a potential court battle over attempts to extradite him to the U.S. to face charges related to the publication of tens of thousands of secret government documents.” He was “arrested on behalf of the United States authorities,” London police said, and the U.S. quickly filed charges of conspiracy to disclose classified information.

Assange has spent the last seven years hiding away in Ecuador’s embassy, but evidently, President Lenin Moreno had had enough. “The discourteous and aggressive behavior of Mr. Julian Assange, the hostile and threatening declarations of its allied organization, against Ecuador, and especially the transgression of international treaties, have led the situation to a point where the asylum of Mr. Assange is unsustainable and no longer viable,” Moreno said.

In 2010, info anarchist Assange conspired with U.S. Army PFC Bradley Manning (now “Chelsea” after his taxpayer-funded gender reassignment while he was in prison for treason) to dump 750,000 purloined classified U.S. military documents on the Web. It was the most significant intelligence compromise in United States history, but Barack Obama, as a gift to his constituents  suffering from chronic gender dysphoria, actually  commuted Manning’s sentence just before departing office in January of 2017 — one of the most inexcusable actions of scumbag/liar-nObama’s tenure. Astoundingly, emboldened by that commutation, in 2018 Manning mounted a run for Senate in Maryland.

Assange’s WikiLeaks was also involved in the 2016 release of hacked DNC emails, which was timed “to heighten their impact on the 2016 presidential election” and was allegedly coordinated with Russian military intelligence. That was a topic of interest in the Mueller investigation, now concluded and on life support. That connection to 2016 means Assange is one or all of three things: a bright, shiny distraction from Bob Barr’s spy statement, the opening salvo of the Great Russia Collusion Correction, or a peace offering from the Brits. One thing’s for sure: Donald Trump will not be commuting any future conviction and sentence Assange receives.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
