scumbag liar-Nadler says there is 'plenty of 
evidence of obstruction' in dirty cop-Mueller
report, believes Don Jr. should
have been charged
by Andrew O'Reilly  
{} ~ House Judiciary Committee Chairman scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler, D-NY, argued on Sunday that, despite Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller deciding not to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice... he believes there is still plenty of evidence of obstruction by the president. scumbag liar-Nadler, who filed a subpoena Friday for dirty cop-Mueller’s full, unredacted report, said that dirty cop-Mueller only restrained from charging Trump with obstruction of justice because of the longstanding Justice Department opinion that a sitting president can’t be indicted. “dirty cop-Mueller says that although a thorough FBI investigation might very well show evidence of obstruction of justice with the president, ‘we’re not going to do that because of the Department of Justice’s legal opinion that a president, a sitting president, can't be indicted and it would be unfair to lay out the facts justifying an indictment without giving the president the opportunity and a trial to clear his name,’ ”scumbag liar-Nadler said on Sunday during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” He added: “Attorney General William Barr misinterpreted that, or misrepresented that I should say, to say they didn't find obstruction. There’s plenty of evidence of obstruction.” scumbag liar-Nadler expects the Justice Department to comply with his committee's subpoena for the full report by May 1...

Trump sues to block Democrats’ subpoena 
for financial information
by Alex Pappas and John Roberts  
{} ~ Lawyers for President Trump on Monday sued to block a subpoena issued by members of Congress that sought the business magnate's financial records... The complaint named Rep. scumbag-Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Peter Kenny, the chief investigative counsel of the House committee, as its plaintiffs. "We will not allow Congressional Presidential harassment to go unanswered," said Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president. Earlier this month, scumbag-Cummings, D-Md., said the committee would subpoena accounting firm Mazars USA LLC for Trump’s financial information. scumbag-Cummings is seeking annual statements, periodic financial reports and independent auditors reports from Mazars, as well as records of communications with Trump. In seeking the records, scumbag-Cummings has cited the February testimony from former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who claimed the president inflated or deflated the value of his assets when it would benefit him. Democrats sent a letter to Mazars in March requesting information about how Trump’s financial statements were prepared, but the firm said it could not voluntarily turn over documents unless subpoenaed...  
The Biggest Hole In The dirty cop-Mueller Report
by  We have been going through the dirty cop-Mueller Report and will have a few more things to say about it as we complete our review and analysis, but first let’s go over what we see as the biggest hole in the Report... The biggest hole is the Report’s utter failure to address the validity of the “predicate” to the entire Trump investigation. Starting with the FISA warrants against Carter Page investigated but never charged with any crime, the George Papadopoulos closed loop of information from the scumbag/liar-nObama intelligence apparatus to Papadopoulos, through Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer and back to the scumbag/liar-nObama FBI, and the false pretenses behind the Trump Tower meeting and the troubling scumbag/liar-Clinton – Democrat connections with the players in that meeting, dirty cop-Mueller’s report delves into none of the phony “predicates” upon which the pre- and post-election actions of the FBI and scumbag/liar-nObama Department of Justice were justified. And this doesn’t even include the Steele Dossier and its salacious and unverified allegations that garnered thousands if not millions of column inches in establishment newspapers, magazines and websites and untold hours of coverage on TV. It’s as if dirty cop-Mueller didn’t want to know whether any of the information that launched the investigation he was overseeing was a set-up or even true. Democrats went nuts when Attorney General William Barr told senators that “I think spying did occur” in the Trump-Russia investigation conducted by among others the Justice Department and the FBI during the 2016 presidential campaign. “The question,” Barr elaborated, “is whether it was adequately predicated.” Because “spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” he explained that he would undertake an internal review, focusing on what the original rationale was for the spying. As our friend, former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy put it in a column for Fox News...
Dem Candidate in PA Special Election Called
 for Middle-Class Tax Increase
by Todd Shepherd } ~ The Democratic nominee in a Pennsylvania special election for a U.S. House seat called for a tax increase on the middle class in a video posted online... Marc Friedenberg, a college professor who lost the election for Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District last November, is now hoping to be elected after Republican Representative Tom Marino resigned in January. Marino beat Friedenberg by 32 points in a district that went heavily for President Trump in 2016. "We should be raising taxes on the middle class so that they're paying their fair share," he said in an online video that was posted on his Facebook account in December of 2017. In numerous instances during the video that runs just under three-and-a-half minutes, Friedenberg appears to read off a script."This is an outrageously unfair hit piece that blatantly takes a slip of the tongue in an old video out-of-context to hide the fact that our opponent supports destroying Social Security," said Gregory Minchak with the Friedenberg campaign. "The entire video discusses that to pay for massive tax cuts for billionaires and international conglomerates, Republicans like Fred Keller want to end Social Security as we know it. Unlike his opponent, Marc has consistently called for middle class tax cuts, affordable health insurance, and the saving of Social Security."...
There's No White Privilege,
Only Racial Differences
by Daniel Greenfield 

{} ~ White privilege, the hottest racist idea since cross-burnings at midnight and photos with Farrakhan, is a subject of academic study and media discourse. It’s hard to escape its pernicious message that an entire race is tainted by virtue of its skin color and that the accomplishments of any individual white person are due, not to his or her efforts, but to race, skin color, and a national infrastructure of white supremacism.

But who actually believes in white privilege? 

A recent Pew race relations survey notes that white people are the least likely to believe that being white helps one get ahead in life. Racial activists see such results as proof of white privilege. Only white people, they insist, could be so oblivious to their racial privileges in the face of the oppression of non-whites. Your skin has to be whiter than vanilla not to realize how badly all the oppressed races have it. 

So, who does believe in white privilege? 

According to the survey, the race most likely to believe that white skin gets you ahead in life are Asians. 

72% of Asians surveyed believe that being white provides advantages. They were, by far, the group least likely to accept that being white has no impact on success in life or that it’s actually a disadvantage. 

It’s curious that the single most successful non-white race is so convinced of the benefits of whiteness. 

Asian Americans outperform white Americans on everything from education to income to family status. Census Bureau statistics showed that Asian-American median income was at $78,000 while white median household income was only $62,000. At 3%, Asian unemployment is lower than those of whites. 

Asian-Americans are more likely to have degrees and advanced degrees than white people. They’re also less likely to be divorced, and Asian-American homelessness rates are only a third of those of whites. 

These statistics don’t paint a picture of a downtrodden minority. The attempts to play statistical games to prove otherwise rely on discredited statistical stunts and frantic arm-waving arguments. And yet what does it say that the people most likely to believe in white privilege are better off than white people? 

On the other side of the dial, the race least likely to believe in the incredible power of white privilege are Hispanics. They are only 5% more likely than white people to believe that being white helps you get ahead in life. And they are as likely as white people to believe that being white has no meaningful effect. 

Statistically speaking, Hispanics have lower median income, employment and education rates than white people. Yet they are also the most likely to be skeptical about the incredible power of white privilege. 

These two contrasts show that belief in white privilege has nothing to do with oppression or privilege. 

Asian-Americans and African-Americans have high rates of confidence in white privilege even though statistically the two groups are far apart in median income, education rates and other success metrics. 

It isn’t success or lack of it that leads to a belief in white privilege. It’s racial differences. 

Why are Asian-Americans and African-Americans the most likely to believe in the power of white skin, and why are Hispanics and white people the least likely to believe that it has magical success powers? 

Hispanics may fall below Asian-Americans and whites in income levels, education and success metrics, but they also have the fewest racial differences with white people. Indeed, the entire idea that Hispanics are a separate race is an absurd construct of political correctness. Hispanics see the fewest racial differences with white people and are therefore the least likely to believe in magical white privilege. 

White privilege, like all racist ideas, depends on the ‘otherness’ of a racial group. In this case, whites. 

The races that are most likely to see white people as an ‘other’ are also the most likely to believe that being white confers magical success powers. The belief that being a member of another group confers special success privileges is a common, and not always, harmful stereotype and racial myth. 

Asian-Americans are perceived, by non-Asians, as having a special ability to succeed. This notion has been codified in the Tiger Mom stereotype and even cruder clichés. Jews are also seen as having a special touch. This stereotype doesn’t just exist among Europeans and Americans, it’s also popular in China where books such as 16 Reasons for Jews Getting Wealthy, Know All of the Money-Making Stories of the Talmud, and Secret of Jewish Success: Ten Commandments of Jewish Success make the rounds. 

These books may be misguided, but they view Jewish success through a Confucian lens and recognize that it is rooted in cultural skills. It’s the same reason Chinese academics remain fascinated by the Protestant work ethic. Likewise, Asian-American success springs from discipline and dedication. 

American integration was based on the understanding that cultural skills could be adopted and learned. As Jews and Protestants had both learned from each other. And as the Chinese seek to learn from both. White privilege counters that with the toxic racist idea that success is, by definition, unearned. And that the best way to understand the success of a group is through the lens of racial conspiracy theories. 

Group success isn’t something to imitate. Instead it should be condemned as a racial conspiracy. 

But the same bigoted conspiracy theories that stigmatize white success as a racial conspiracy, can just as easily tar the success stories of Asian-Americans and Jews, both groups whose successes have often been viewed as the products of racial conspiracies, rather than of their dedication and hard work. 

Racial differences make it all too easy to see people of different races as being members of a racial conspiracy. That is what white privilege contends. White privilege borrows the white nationalist slur of a Jewish, conscious or unconscious, racial conspiracy to explain not just Jewish success, but white success. It’s just as racist whether it’s articulated by Peggy McIntosh or Kevin McDonald. The underlying bigoted idea is just as racist whether it’s applied to all white people or only to Jews. 

It’s not just racial differences, but the degree of integration that may also explain the survey’s results. 

African-Americans are only 3% less likely than Asians to believe in the power of whiteness. But nearly a quarter of African-Americans believe that being white has no meaningful impact on success in life while only a fifth of Asian-Americans recognize that fact. Why are African-Americans more likely than Asian-Americans to recognize that whiteness confers no special powers on the average white person?

The answer may be integration. 

Despite the racist conspiracy theories foisted on African-Americans by a radical racist leadership, they are more likely to have spent generations living and working side by side with white Americans. However a majority of Asian-Americans are immigrants, and a majority don’t feel culturally integrated. Most Asian-American immigrants report not feeling like a typical American. And this is the result. 

The belief in white privilege among Asian-Americans in the survey reflects that lack of integration. Like racial differences, national and cultural differences can nurture stereotypes and perceptions of otherness. The conviction that being white helps you succeed doesn’t reflect the experiential reality of Asian-American success, but comes of viewing those they perceive as typical Americans as ‘other’. 

The Pew survey demonstrates that belief in white privilege is not the outcome of oppression, but of misunderstanding, otherness and stereotype. The people most likely to believe that white people have an unfair advantage are not the oppressed, but the groups with the greatest sense of racial difference. 

You are more likely to believe in the power of white privilege if you view white people as being very different, either from your own race, or, if you are a white progressive, from other races. 

The best disinfectant for the white privilege stereotype, as for so many other bad ideas, is sunlight. Unfortunately, academia and the media, instead of countering prejudices, reinforce racial stereotypes and bigoted ideas such as white privilege. And that divides the country further into warring camps. 

Like any other stereotype, white privilege should be denounced. And the racist assumptions underlying it should be exposed in order to educate those who have come to harbor this ugly idea in their hearts.
