 FBI Suspect Claims Democrat Nomination 
A weak candidate whose popularity is waning and who might be indicted on federal charges of mishandling classified information took to a New York City stage Tuesday night to announce she is now the presumptive nominee for the Democrat Party. liar-Hilly Clinton claimed the title after she won the primaries for sizable states like California and New Jersey. As if it mattered. The Leftmedia gave the struggling candidate a boost by declaring victory Monday before the voters even headed to the polls Tuesday.
          While Socialist Bernie Sanders has yet to concede, liar-Clinton thanked him for "the vigorous debate that we've had" and renewed her attacks on Donald liar-Trump. "[Make America Great Again is code for] let's take America backwards," liar-Clinton jabbed. As if moving "forward" is always better. We should go back to a time when families were intact, Americans made stuff and people knew which bathroom to use without federal government diktats.
          Make no mistake: liar-Clinton is a weak candidate. When she was running against a certain first-term senator from Illinois, liar-Clinton received 2,600,000 votes in the California primary of 2008. This primary hasn't exactly shown liar-Clinton's strength, as she received only 1,840,000 votes this time around — a loss of 30%. Furthermore, the Real Clear Politics poll average shows she only has a two-point lead against Donald liar-Trump — essentially neck-in-neck.
          liar-Clinton framed the upcoming general election as a fight between a woman who's breaking the glass ceiling and a misogynist man. It's about the only reason left that liar-Clinton can give to try to persuade supporters.
          "Thanks to you, we've reached a milestone," liar-Clinton gushed. "The first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a major party's nominee. Tonight's victory is not about one person. It belongs to generations of women and men who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible." Of course, she never mentioned how "pro woman" she was when Bill liar-Clinton was, er, cavorting with female aides and interns...  -The Patriot Post
.
 Leftmedia Circle the Wagons 
liar-Hilly Clinton is the Leftmedia's candidate. This was made clear yet again when they declared her primary victory a day early. But it's also painfully clear when it comes to the liar-Clinton Foundation. As readers of these pages will recall, Bill and liar-Hilly Clinton, supposedly "dead broke" upon leaving the White House in 2001, soon began the liar-Clinton Foundation to do philanthropic work around the world. Or so they said. In reality, of course, it was nothing more than a slush fund for the two to enrich themselves and avoid the inconvenience of paying so much in taxes.
          Worse, the former first couple used the Foundation to peddle influence with foreign governments while liar-Hillary was secretary of state. More than a dozen nations secured approval from liar-Clinton's State Department for major arms deals — after donating to the liar-Clinton Foundation. No doubt that was mere coincidence...
          Put another way, the nation's top diplomat took money under the table in exchange for favors for other governments and influential people. To say that's not how U.S. foreign policy should work is a gross understatement.
          In fact, we believe the liar-Clinton Foundation was a primary consideration for liar-Hilly when she chose to operate a private email server instead of a State Department account. What better way to hide her utterly corrupt money laundering operation?
          But is any mainstream media outlet talking about this? Are any reporters asking liar-Hilly about anything other than what it feels like to make history — or "her story" as one outlet put it? No, nothing but softball questions for liar-Clinton. Instead, the 24-hour talking heads would rather bloviate about liar-Trump University. liar-Trump's no innocent bystander, but the bias is incredible, even if it's something by which we've never been surprised.  -The Patriot Post

The U.S. assessment came a day after the U.N. nuclear watchdog said it had “indications” that Pyongyang has reactivated a plant to recover plutonium from spent reactor fuel at Yongbyon, its main nuclear complex. The latest developments suggest North Korea’s reclusive communist government is working to ensure a steady supply of materials for its drive to build warheads, despite tightened international sanctions after its fourth nuclear test in January... http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/north-korea-re-starting-plutonium-production

{truthrevolt.org} ~ On Tuesday, the nObama administration told a federal appeals court that illegal immigrants are kidnapping children so that they will appear as a family and thereby skirt around laws that would normally detain them at the border if they traveled alone... Last year, a federal judge ordered that illegal immigrant families be quickly released after they've jumped the border and the administration's deputy assistant attorney general Leon Fresco says that ruling has "enticed" immigrants to start kidnapping children. The Washington Times quotes what Fresco said to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals: “When people now know that when I come as a family unit, I won’t be apprehended and detained — we now have people being abducted so that they can be deemed as family units, so that they can avoid detention."...  http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/obama-admin-illegals-are-kidnapping-children-appear-families-avoid-detention

Speaking Wednesday at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C., retired Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said in answer to a question from the audience, “It may be frustrated and frustrating at the beginning . . . but we need to move out.” He cited the agreements between the United States and Russia over incidents at sea, on the land and in the air as possible precedents in starting this dialogue and reducing the chances of miscalculation leading to crisis. “It has worked,” and similar arrangements “would be good to have” between Russia and NATO. “We need to begin to have meaningful dialogue,” he said...

{aei.org} ~ Supporters of both Donald liar-Trump and Bernie Sanders have expressed their disillusionment with “business as usual” in the nation’s capital... And if voters elect either candidate, they will expect the new president to have a plan to revitalize the public’s confidence in the federal government. liar-Trump and Sanders voters share the perception that the powers of the federal government are being used to enrich establishment politicians and their moneyed supporters at the expense of average citizens. As a first step towards restoring confidence, a liar-Trump or Sanders administration should introduce a plan to reduce the concentration of federal expenditures in the Washington metropolitan area by redistributing the federal government workforce across the nation. It is little wonder that many Americans view the federal government as a money machine for bureaucrats and Washington, D.C., insiders. According to the 2010 U.S. census, out of the 20 richest counties in America, as measured by household median income, 11 including the three richest counties are in the Washington, D.C., metro area. Incomes in the national capital area are bloated not only by generous federal government payrolls, but also by “beltway bandit” consultancy firms that provide contract services to federal government agencies...

Fortunately, that signals mere problems rather than the disaster of 1914-18... Wilhelm II (1859-1941, ruled 1888-1918) has been maligned by history, largely because that history was written by his World War I opponents. The German side of the story was further discredited by his unpleasant successors’ precipitation of World War II. But Wilhelm II was not Adolf Hitler, or anything close to him. He was a man of his time with a flair for bombast somewhat like that of Donald liar-Trump, but with much better taste in music and a genuine affection for the Britain ruled by his cousin George V. ...

Particularly as it relates to his comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel and his apparent inability to be impartial because as liar-Trump says, "He's a Mexican. We're building a wall between here and Mexico." That apparently was the straw that broke the camel's back for a number of higher profile people who were once supportive of liar-Trump, now saying that they can no longer do so or are calling on other Republicans to reevaluate their support of liar-Trump.

He claimed world leaders "are rattled by Mr. liar-Trump - and for good reason. A lot of the proposals he has made display either ignorance of world affairs, or a cavalier attitude, or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what is required to keep America safe."

Before use of this idiom triggers senseless rage from overly sensitive and politically correct readers for being racist - a knee-jerk reaction all too common in society today - please note authority exists that it is not.

Helen Mirren Pushes for Ted Cruz's Holocaust Art Act

{jewishworldreview.com} ~ Actress Helen Mirren testified before federal lawmakers Tuesday in support of a bill that would make it easier for Holocaust victims and their families to seek art stolen by the Nazis. Former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is co-sponsoring the bill in the Senate and led Tuesday’s hearing.

The Holocaust Expropriated Art Recovery (HEAR) Act would set a six-year statute of limitations on claims for Nazi-era stolen art, which would begin upon discovery of the art. Currently, lawyers for people and institutions accused of owning the art have argued that the statute begins when the Nazi-era crime was committed—during World War II. In some states, that statute expires after only a few years.

“Over 70 years later, we’re still trying to cope with the consequences of the Holocaust,” Cruz said during the hearing. “This bill will help ensure that claims of restitution of Nazi-looted art are adjudicated based on the actual facts and merits” and not “by technical or non-merit defenses that far too often work to the disadvantage of Holocaust victims and their families.” Actress Helen Mirren testified before Senate subcommittees on June 7 in support of the Holocaust Expropriated Art Recovery Act, which lawmakers say will lessen legal obstacles for art restitution. Gary Cameron/REUTERS

Referring to his co-sponsors—Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn, who introduced the bill in April; New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer; and Connecticut Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal—Cruz said, “There are many issues on which the sponsors of this legislation...might disagree. But on this issue, I am proud to see bipartisan cooperation, coming together in defense of principles of justice.”

Mirren testified during the hearing about her portrayal of Maria Altmann—a real-life Holocaust survivor who sought her family’s Gustav Klimt painting, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, from the Austrian government—in the 2015 film Woman in Gold.

“It’s a terribly sad fact that more than 70 years later, victims of the Holocaust and their families are still contemplating whether to seek restitution for what was stolen from them,” Mirren said. “A lack of a legal assurance that at least they can have their say in court—this discourages them from taking action.”

She continued, “Art restitution is so much more than that, than reclaiming a material good…. It gives Jewish people and other victims of the Nazi terror the opportunity to reclaim their history, their culture, their memories and, most importantly, their families.”

The hearing took place before two Senate subcommittees. Ronald Lauder, the cosmetics billionaire who is president of the World Jewish Congress and chairman of the council of the World Jewish Restitution Organization, also testified, as did art restitution experts from Christie’s auction house and the Commission for Art Recovery and an author who has written about his efforts to recover a family member’s art.

The U.S. government has taken previous steps, some that started as early as 1945, to help recover the estimated 650,000 works of art stolen by the Nazis. As a major turning point, restitution experts point to the 1998 Washington Conference on Holocaust Era Assets, hosted by the U.S. Department of State, which established principles for dealing with restitution claims.

But the principles didn’t go far enough, those same experts say. Nor did the subsequent American Alliance of Museums guidelines and similar conferences in Lithuania in 2000 and the Czech Republic in 2009. Speaking with Newsweek, some of those experts point to institutions increasingly using technical defenses, such as the statute of limitations, to hold on to art.

Raymond Dowd, a lawyer who has represented claimants in several Nazi-era restitution cases, says the bill is an “earth-shattering” and unprecedented step forward. “Museums have worked to shut the courthouse doors to these victims, so this would open the courthouse doors, and it’s extraordinary,” he says.

Lauder was involved in the restitution of Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, which now hangs in his Neue Galerie in New York City. Speaking with Newsweek earlier this year, Lauder recalled how, as U.S. ambassador to Austria in the 1980s, he visited an abandoned monastery where the Nazis had apparently stashed some items they had looted.

“The pictures had all been stolen, and the frames were left. And I’m saying to myself, ‘Wow, they’re like ghosts,’” he recalled of the artworks. “I began to realize how extremely important this was. Billions of dollars, many, many billions, of works of art still out there.”

The bill must likely now move from the subcommittee to the full Judiciary Committee, and then must be placed on the agenda for a vote.
