Loesch Warns Hollywood Libtards, Media
Propagandists and Dirty Politicians 
{ rickwells.us } ~ As the self-obsessed of Hollywood held their awards pageant for each other to perpetuate the myth that they’re better than the rest of us... and trick some of the more feeble-minded Americans into caring what happens there, Dana Loesch had a message. Time is running out for the corrupt left and their tools of mind control and subversion. In an advertisement for her new program on NRATV, Loesch told the anti-American globalist Democrats and their various identity factions how things are going to be. She said, “We’ve had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news. We are done with your agenda to undermine voters’ will and individual liberty in America.” She continues, “So to every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents, to the politicians who would rather watch America burn than lose one ounce of their own personal power, to the late night hosts who think their opinions are the only opinions that matter.”...  https://rickwells.us/loesch-warns-hollywood-media/

Contradictions In Seth Rich Murder 
Continue To Challenge Hacking Narrative
by Tyler Durden 
{ zerohedge.com } ~ As rumors swirl that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing a case against Russians who are alleged to have hacked Democrats during the 2016 election... a conclusion based solely on the analysis of cybersecurity firm Crowdstrike, a Friday op-ed in the Washington Times by retired U.S. Navy admiral James A. Lyons, Jr. asks a simple, yet monumentally significant question: Why haven't Congressional Investigators or Special Counsel Robert Mueller addressed the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich - who multiple people have claimed was Wikileaks' source of emails leaked during the 2016 U.S. presidential election? Mueller has been incredibly thorough in his ongoing investigations - however he won't even respond to Kim Dotcom, the New Zealand entrepreneur who clearly knew about the hacked emails long before they were released, claims that Seth Rich obtained them with a memory stick, and has offered to provide proof to the Special Counsel investigation.  In addition to several odd facts surrounding Rich's still unsolved murder - which officials have deemed a "botched robbery," forensic technical evidence has emerged which contradicts the Crowdstrike report. The Irvine, CA company partially funded by Google, was the only entity allowed to analyze the DNC servers in relation to claims of election hacking...   https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-02/contradictions-seth-rich-...

This New Technology Could 
Transform The Oil Industry
by Ian Jenkins
{ oilprice.com } ~ Across the world’s big energy markets, the energy war rages on... OPEC and U.S. producers have been competing for years, but it’s now clear who’s winning this fight. American production of crude oil rose to an all-time high, surpassing 10 million bpd. In February, the International Energy Agency predicted that U.S. shale output could meet all new global demand, thanks to its “extraordinary growth.” Petroteq doesn’t want to just produce oil from oil sands much more cheaply—it intends to license advanced technology globally, targeting not only the 1 trillion-plus barrels of oil equivalent in sands in Utah, Colorado and Wyoming, but the trillions of barrels worth everywhere around the world...  https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/This-New-Technology-Coul...

Could federal watchdog tamper with Trump
wiretap evidence? It may not be a first
by SHARYL ATTKISSON
{ thehill.com } ~ Everyone hopes the Department of Justice’s inspector general (IG) will fairly investigate surveillance activities conducted on U.S. citizens by the FBI and intel agencies... Just like we hope the IG’s office will reach fair conclusions in its probes of alleged FBI misconduct concerning the liar-Hillary Clinton investigation, leaks to the media and conflicts of interest. But, for me, there’s reason to be wary. I turned to the IG’s office in 2013 after independent forensics proved my computers had been infiltrated by remote intruders using software proprietary to a federal intel agency. Instead of fair findings, I got a lot of mischief and stonewalling.  By way of background, in 2013, I filed a complaint with the IG’s office asking it to investigate the government-based computer surveillance. CBS News — where I worked at the time — would not allow the IG to examine my CBS laptop, which had been infiltrated as CBS publicly announced on Aug. 7, 2013. But I asked the IG to examine one of my personal home computers that was also compromised...  http://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/376328-could-federal-watchdog-t...

The Academy Awards for Hypocrisy and Narcissism 
by Mark Alexander:  The latest annual confab of self-congratulatory celebrities, the 90th Academy Awards, is over.

          If you are reading this, you likely did not watch that self-aggrandizing parade of pomp and pretense from mostly mindless Hollywonks and have already seen headlines about who won which awards. There are still a few great movies being made, but some of the biggest “entertainment industry” grossers are devoted to the unmitigated violence saturating the minds of young people.
          The centerpiece celebrity of the event was its host, Jimmy Kimmel, who, as I wrote last week, deserves an Oscar for “Serial Misogyny Based on a True Story.” Kimmel is an unapologetic misogynist, but he gets a pass because he has established himself as the loudest of the elitist celebrity voices defaming grassroots Patriots and those who represent them.
          If not for Hollywood’s abject hypocrisy, Kimmel would not be hosting the Academy Awards — which is to say, he is the perfect host.
          As I noted last week, given the recent report that 94% of Hollywood women report have been harassed, Kimmel was asked if he would use his Oscars platform to take up the mantle of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.
          He fired back, “This show is not about reliving people’s sexual assaults. It’s an awards show. … And the last thing I want to do is ruin that for someone … by making it unpleasant. You know, that’s not what I want to do. I’m not going to stop any bad behavior with my jokes.”
          In other words, Kimmel knows that if he focused too much on the #MeToo mantle, somebody might actually call him out for his sordid history of wholesale misogyny as creator of “The Man Show,” where he spent four years building his career on the gross objectification and denigration of women prior to being picked up by Disney/ABC.
          Though he regularly uses his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” monologues as a platform to promote leftist political causes, he has not devoted a single monologue to condemn the sexual harassment in Hollywood. Wonder why? He’s a hypocrite’s hypocrite — but Disney/ABC isn’t about to derail its advertising revenue gravy train.
          Despite his assertion last week that he would not mention #MeToo, somebody tapped on his shoulder and let him know he had to mention it because it’s going to be a significant component of the Democrats’ midterm election strategy.
          According to the tabloid Washington Post headlines, between his attacks on President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, Kimmel’s “#MeToo Oscars monologue revealed a painful truth.” But of course, not the truth about his own well-documented, unapologetic serial denigration of women.
          Kimmel joked about #MeToo: “Oscar is the most beloved and respected man in Hollywood. And there’s a very good reason why. Just look at him. Keeps his hands where you can see them. Never said a rude word. And most importantly, no penis at all.
          He crassly offered this pun about the most noted of executive abusers in Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein: “The academy, as you are no doubt aware, took action last year to expel Harvey Weinstein from their ranks. There were a lot of great nominees, but Harvey deserved it the most.” Apparently the other “great nominees” are now being more discreet with their harassment and abuse.
          He took cheap shots at easy targets. “Here’s how clueless Hollywood is about women,” he said. “We made a movie called ‘What Women Want’ and it starred Mel Gibson.”
          No, actually, here’s how clueless Hollywood is about women — they selected a serial misogynist to host their biggest celebrity confab of the year.
          On a serious note, Kimmel declared, “We can’t let bad behavior slide anymore. The world is watching us. We need to set an example.
          The next “example” should be exiling Kimmel from his celebrity seat at Disney/ABC.    ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
