Trump talked with Jeff Sessions'
chief of staff about replacing him 
by DAVID MARTOSKO
{dailymail.co.uk} ~ President Donald Trump spoke personally with Jeff Sessions' chief of staff about replacing the attorney general in late September... according to a West Wing aide. The source confirmed that the conversation happened, after The Washington Post reported that the president had teed up the conversation with Matthew Whitaker. Senior Republicans told DailyMail.com on Monday that Whitaker is in a 'grooming exercise' to become attorney general, and was expected to become acting deputy attorney general until Rod Rosenstein's planned resignation evaporated two weeks ago. That would have been a dry-run for the top job. President Trump neither confirmed nor denied the Whitaker talks on Thursday during an interview on 'Fox & Friends.' 'I never talk about that but I can tell you Matt Whitaker's a great guy,' he said...

Trump blasts scumbag-Eric Holder over
‘kick ‘em’ comment: ‘Disgusting statement’
by Judson Berger  
{foxnews.com} ~ President Trump, in an interview Thursday with “Fox & Friends,” rebuked scumbag-Eric Holder for his call to “kick” Republicans and spurn civility... saying the scumbag/liar-nObama attorney general’s comments were “disgusting” and “dangerous.” “He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News. “That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.” scumbag-Holder was captured on video speaking Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia dummycrats-Democratic candidates. In the clip, he rejected former first lady Michelle scumbag/liar-nObama's famous call for civility in politics – adopting a confrontational tone that’s become increasingly fashionable amid the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight and other debates. "It is time for us, as dummycrats-Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are," scumbag-Holder told the crowd. "Michelle always says -- I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and scumbag/liar-Barack -- but Michelle always says, 'When they go low, we go high.' No. When they go low, we kick 'em."...
Hizballah Hacked into Mobile Devices Worldwide

{investigativeproject.org} ~ Hizballah hackers used 'catfishing' techniques on social media to infiltrate mobile devices worldwide... according to a Monday release from the Czech Security Intelligence Service (BIS), as reported by Radio Praha (Prague). Hizballah operatives posed as attractive women on Facebook to seduce users into downloading a "more private and secure application." Those who installed the application gave the hackers access to sensitive information such as GPS data, photographs, contacts, and communications. The hackers could also secretly enable the recording function on a particular mobile device and spy on the target. The cyber-attacks originated from the Middle East, the BIS press release said, and focused on targets across Europe and the United States. The Czech intelligence service revealed that it cooperated with international partners to identify and disarm servers used in this particular case of Hizballah's cyber espionage campaign...

Republicans push to confirm more
than 40 judges before midterms
by Alex Swoyer
{washingtontimes.com} ~ With the Supreme Court nomination of Brett M. Kavanaugh completed, GOP senators are quickly pivoting to filling out the rest of the federal courts... eyeing more than 40 district and circuit judges they want to confirm before the end of the year. One top priority is filling the seat left vacant on the powerful D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals when Justice Kavanaugh was elevated.  Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, Republicans’ point man on the issue, said if the White House can nominate someone this week, lawmakers could have Justice Kavanaugh’s replacement seated by Christmas. That would be in addition to 38 district judges and three circuit judges already pending on the Senate floor, who Republicans say they should confirm before they leave Washington to campaign for the mid-term elections. “McConnell ought to keep the Senate in session until we get all 41 of those judges done,” Mr. Grassley told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday...

'Dr. Doom' warns Senate: 'Cryptocurrency
is the mother of all scams'
by James Langford
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies like it that don't exist outside cyberspace and have suffered rapid price fluctuations represent "the mother of all scams," says Nouriel Roubini... the New York University economist who predicted the 2008 financial crisis and was nicknamed 'Dr. Doom.' "Literally, every human being I met between Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2017 asked me" if they should buy cryptocurrency, Roubini said in written testimony prepared for a Thursday hearing before the Senate Banking Committee. Cryptocurrencies were exploding in value at the time, with Bitcoin alone peaking at $19,343 in December, compared with $1,000 earlier in the year, and their backers "tapped into clueless retail investors' FOMO — fear of missing out — and took them for a ride," he said. Bitcoin has since tumbled 66 percent to $6,555, according to Coindesk. As a result, cryptocurrencies have drawn the attention of Trump administration officials from Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton, who worried that investors didn't understand what they they were buying and that the products could undermine financial stability. Those are among the issues that prompted corporate titans from Warren Buffett to JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon to turn up their noses at the prospect of doing business in cryptocurrency and spurred the Senate Banking Committee to schedule a hearing with Clayton and Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo earlier this year...

Socialism Destroys

by John Stossel
 

Socialism is hot. Famous actors recently made a commercial proclaiming that “dummycrats-democratic socialism” creates some of the best parts of America. It’s “your kids’ public school” (says Susan Sarandon), the “interstate highway system” (Rosario Dawson), “public libraries” (Jay Ferguson), “EMTs” (Ethan Embry), “workers who plow our streets” (Max Carver) and “scientists” (Danny DeVito).
               Wow. I guess every popular thing government does is socialism.
               The celebrities conclude: “We can do better when we do them together.
               There is sometimes truth to that, but the movie stars don’t know that America’s first highways were built by capitalist contractors. They also probably didn’t notice that the more popular parts of government — public schools, EMTs, snow plowing, libraries, etc. — are largely locally funded.
               “They should wake up,” says Gloria Alvarez. She is from Guatemala and says, “I’ve seen the impact of socialism. My father escaped Cuba. My grandfather suffered under Communists in Hungary before escaping.”
               This week I turn my video channel over to Alvarez so she can give her perspective on dummycrats-democratic socialism’s new popularity.
               “As a child, I was taught to mock socialism,” she says, “but dummycrats-democratic socialism sounded OK. It made sense that government should take care of the economy. Then I watched dummycrats-democratic socialism fail in Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Chile, Nicaragua and Uruguay. I learned that every time a country started down the socialist path, it fails.
               But every time a country tries it, even just a little of it, people applaud.
               When Castro came to power, people cheered because he was going to help the poor and make everyone equal.
               But governments can’t plan things efficiently without the prices and constant individual decision-making that free markets provide.
               The result in Cuba was economic stagnation and horrible loss of freedom.
               Cuban refugees who now live in Miami’s “Little Havana” neighborhood warn Americans about socialist promises.
               Michel Ibarra told Alvarez, “You don’t see any future. Everything is stagnated. Health care, education — nowadays they’re in ruins.”
               Venezuela didn’t learn from Cuba’s problems. They voted in Hugo Chavez when he said that “capitalism is the realm of injustice” and promised wealth would be distributed equally.
               But when there was no more money left to take from rich people, he did what many governments (including our own) do: He printed more. That’s caused inflation approaching 1 million percent.
               When business owners raised prices to try to keep up, Chavez and his successor just seized many of them.
               Again, Venezuelans applauded. Taking from the rich is popular. Ramon Muchacho, a former mayor in Caracas, told Alvarez that when Chavez seized businesses, people were “clapping so hard. They were like, ‘Oh, finally there is somebody here making social justice!’”
               But government grabbing private businesses creates shortages. Governments aren’t good at running supermarkets. One Venezuelan refugee told Alvarez, “It’s like the apocalypse. No food. No medicine.” But in the U.S., socialism still holds appeal.
               “Plenty of (socialist) countries are nothing like Venezuela,” says comedian John Oliver.
               “When I talk about dummycrats-democratic socialism, I am not looking at Venezuela,” says Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders, “not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark, like Sweden.
               So many American politicians now cite Denmark as a socialist paradise that Denmark’s prime minister felt compelled to go on TV to say, “Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”
               Exactly. Socialism, dummycrats-democratic or tyrannical, means government owns or controls businesses.
               In Scandinavia, business is largely left alone. Governments don’t even set a minimum wage. Economic freedom rankings give Scandinavian countries high scores on property rights and business freedom.
               Those countries do have big welfare programs, but they are funded by thriving free enterprise.
               In addition, many cut back on their welfare programs after they discovered they were unsustainable or discouraged work.
               Think about that the next time you hear celebrities saying “Sweden” and praising socialism.
               As one Venezuelan refugee told Alvarez, “You don’t need the government to dictate how to live your life, how much money you should make, how your family should be treated.
               Increased government control rarely helps people. It wrecks economies. It wrecks lives.

     As one Venezuelan refugee told Alvarez, “You don’t need the government to dictate how to live your life, how much money you should make, how your family should be treated.” A TRUER STATEMENT FOR SURE.   U DO NOT NEED GOVT TO DICTATE HOW U LIVE OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT IS TRUE AND THAT IS WHAT WE NEED TO GO BACK TO.   BIG CORPORATIONS NOW ARE A MONSTER.    BIG TECH COMPANIES ARE BIG BROTHER AND BIG GOVT LOVES IT.    WE SHOULD NOT THAT IS NOT WHY AMERICA EXISTS.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
