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.

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
