by sundance
theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears on Fox News Sunday to debate antagonistic DC Swamp Guard Chris Wallace... The primary topic was the recent attacks on shipping tankers by Iranian elements in the Gulf of Oman. Additionally, Secretary Pompeo discussed the protests in Hong Kong against the growing influence from Beijing; the issues with North Korea to achieve a positive outcome with Kim Jong Un; the New York Times story on U.S. active measures against Russia; and the nonsensical -hypothetical- foreign opposition research issue.  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/06/16/sunday-talks-secret...

Pharma Industry Suing Trump
 Administration over New Regulations
by Jack Davis   
westernjournal.com } ~ Drug companies are suing the Trump administration, claiming a proposed new rule requiring drug prices be displayed in TV ads is a violation of free speech... The Association of National Advertisers joined three companies — Amgen, Merck and Eli Lilly — in the suit aimed at blocking the rule, which is scheduled to go into effect in July. They argued the prices the government would have them post are not what consumers actually pay. “Not only does the rule raise serious freedom of speech concerns, it mandates an approach that fails to account for differences among insurance, treatments, and patients themselves, by requiring disclosure of list price,” Amgen said in a statement, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We believe the new requirements may cause patients to decide not to seek treatment because of their perception that they cannot afford their medications, when in fact many patients do not pay anything near list price,” Merck said in its statement, The New York Times reported. The federal government fired back. “If the drug companies are embarrassed by their prices or afraid that the prices will scare patients away, they should lower them,” Caitlin Oakley, a spokeswoman for the  Department of Health and Human Services, said in a statement. “President Trump and HHS Secretary Alex Azar are committed to providing patients the information they need to make their own informed health care decisions.” The policy requires drug makers to post in their ads the list price for a 30-day supply of any drug that is covered by Medicare and Medicaid that also has a cost of at least $35 per month...

NSA Whistleblower Has Evidence DNC Was 
NOT Hacked By Russia, Mueller Report 
Completely Based on Lies
by americanlibertyreport.com:  An NSA whistleblower claims to have evidence the Democratic National Convention (DNC) server was not hacked by Russians making the Mueller Report completely based on lies... Roger Stone’s legal defense team has requested a report, the whistleblower says undermines the basic premise of Special Counsel Muller’s investigation. Newly release court documents show that Stone’s lawyers are seeking unredacted copies of the Crowdstrike Reports. Crowdstrike is the private computer security firm that reportedly inspected the DNC server after WikiLeaks published the hacked emails about what how they cheated comkie-Bernie Sanders out of his fair shot and scumbag/liar-Hillary’s monetary takeover of the DNC. Crowdstrike announced on June 15, 2016 that it has detected “Russian” malware on the DNC computer server. The next day, self-described Romanian hacker Guccifer 2.0 claimed to be a WikiLeaks source and had hacked the DNC’s server. Guccifer 2.0 posted metadata from the hacked files that indicated Russian involvement. In a Motion to Compel Unredacted Versions of The Crowdstike Reports a request is made for an unredacted version of the same report. The motion read: The defense believes that the unredacted copies of these Reports constitute Brady material because they likely contain evidence that is material as Stone’s innocence. Part of the defense team’s motion is based on the fact such a report is “not subject to redactions” or “any kind of government oversight.” The term Brady material or Brady Rule material is named after Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963). That ruling requires prosecutors “to disclose materially exculpatory evidence in the government’s possession to the defense.”...

CAIR Snagged on Massive Fake Lawyer Scam
by Clarion Project
clarionproject.org } ~ The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was snagged on a massive fake lawyer scam they perpetrated on hundreds of unfortunate Muslims more than a decade ago... For the last 11 years, the case has been making its way through the courts, with “CAIR and its minions using every tactic in the book, including illegal and unethical practices, to avoid justice,” Lawyer David Yerushalmi said. Now finally, facing a trial which would have exposed the extortion scheme to the public as well as the prospect of CAIR having to pay all the legal fees of the victims if they lost, CAIR decided to settle. Although the financial terms of the settlement are confidential, the victims are “extremely happy,” according to Yerushalmi. In 2007, the U.S. government labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing the Hamas terrorist group. By November 2014, CAIR was designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates along with a host of other Muslim Brotherhood entities. The fake lawyer scam case began in 2006, when the now-closed Virginia chapter of CAIR hired Morris Days, a man purporting himself to be a lawyer, to give legal advice to local Muslims. In actuality, Days was not a lawyer, yet charged his clients fees for “pro-bono” legal advice. He led them to believe that he was filing cases for them, which was not true. Believing Days was on top of his immigration appeal, at least one client of Days was deported because of the scam. The lawsuit brought by Yerushalmi and his American Freedom Law Center in 2008 charged that by November 2007, the Virginia chapter of CAIR found out about the fake lawyer scam and proceeded to cover-up Days’ actions. The lawsuit charged that CAIR not only refused to notify the authorities about the scam, but they also offered some of the victims hush money... CAIR chapters all of them should be force to closed.

When and Why Golden Geese Take Wing
by Clarice Feldman

americanthinker.com } ~ My friend Lynn Chu has boiled down the basis for a just, prosperous society: “It is very easy to spend other people's money...
 thus eliminating all of the vital discrimination about the devils in the details which are knowable only at the level of the individual. This is the main justification for the protection of individual liberty against autocracy other than the clarity of the moral imperative of human rights as the privileges and immunities of the individual in society.” When Great Britain turned over Hong Kong at the expiration of its lease, the Chinese government promised to leave its democratic institutions and law alone. Bit by bit, that promise has been eroded until recently China pressured the local authorities to agree to an extradition treaty that would allow them to extradite  from the former colony and try in China anyone, even someone merely transiting through its airport. Day after day the residents in the millions resisted, marching en masse through the streets, closing down schools and shops as employers allowed workers leave to work at home and demonstrate. Some argued that the U.S. would have to intervene, but that doesn’t immediately seem to be necessary, as the Chinese, obviously aware that more brutal crackdown efforts or even armed intervention would more seriously affect their interests. The local authorities -- clearly with China’s acquiescence -- backed down, suspending the extradition law indefinitely: Indeed, by several accounts, faced with  the threat of Chinese tyranny, capital has already been fleeing the colony for elsewhere. Physical security and rule of law matter. And an independent and fair judicial system...

A Further Tangled Web for worthless-Ilhan Omar
Michael Swartz:  It was only a couple of weeks ago that we profiled Minnesota freshman Democrat Rep. worthless-Ilhan Omar. We did so to chronicle the  simmering hatred she’s espoused since winning state office in 2016 and a U.S. congressional seat last year. And our critique seems even more justified now, as new revelations have slowly leaked out of the Twin Cities area.

worthless-Omar’s tangled web, however, doesn’t just involve the minor news item of spending campaign money on personal items. In this case, the state’s campaign-finance board ordered worthless-Omar to repay nearly $3,500, mainly spent on travel unrelated to her duties as a Minnesota state legislator. Instead, it involves worthless-Omar’s two marriages — one to Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children, and the other marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. worthless-Omar was married to Elmi from 2009 to 2017, but claimed that in 2011 she received a “faith divorce” from him. This distinction is important, because worthless-Omar filed her taxes jointly with Hirsi on two separate tax returns in 2014 and 2015 — though they were not legally married until last year. Minnesota doesn’t permit the filing of joint returns by two parties who aren’t married.

In a case of closing the barn door after the horse is out, worthless-Omar’s hometown newspaper is finally showing some curiosity. A Minneapolis Star Tribune editorial this week noted, “Last year worthless-Omar told the Star Tribune that she had married her partner ‘in her faith,’ and had earlier divorced her first husband ‘in her faith.’ That’s fine for religious purposes. But for tax purposes, only civil marriages qualify. It’s not known whether she benefited materially by filing jointly. That is something that voters, who are obliged to follow tax laws no matter how painful, are entitled to know.” The editorial goes on to document other issues worthless-Omar has faced in just two years in public office.

But the filing of improper tax returns only scratches the surface. Rumors have swirled around worthless-Omar’s marriage to Elmi: that it was a sham in order to allow Elmi — who, as the story goes, is worthless-Omar’s brother — to fraudulently enter the country. This is supported by the fact that no children came from the Elmi marriage, while all three of worthless-Omar’s children were born out of wedlock with Hirsi. Yet this marriage “in her faith” to Elmi includes a piece of paper that vouched for its legality.

But even if there’s nothing to these rumors, worthless-Omar is being less than cooperative about a potential case of perjury. As Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey opines with tongue firmly in cheek:

Maybe her fellow House Democrats can help pry (other tax returns) out of worthless-Omar. After all, they’re demanding full transparency from Donald Trump on his tax returns even though they can’t even point to probable cause for a crime. The Minnesota Campaign Finance Board found clear evidence of tax violations with worthless-Omar in the two years of tax returns they reviewed, on top of previous campaign-finance violations. Shouldn’t that prompt House Democrats to apply the same transparency standard to worthless-Omar?

We believe that falls into the category of “when pigs fly.”

But it’s notable how little national coverage this episode is receiving, especially when there’s a golden opportunity  for an intrepid journalist to “make a difference” and help force a corrupt politician out of office. Of course, worthless-Omar is innocent until proven guilty, but we’re reminded of a recent $35 million investigation that was launched on a far weaker factual foundation than what we see here.  ~The Patriot Post

Joe Biden On Violence Against Women:   We Have To Keep ‘Punching At It, And Punching At It, And Punching At It’

 The audience laughed as he said this.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said that America needs to be “punching” back to combat violence against women during Wednesday’s Democratic debate.

Biden was asked if he would tackle specific issues regarding the #MeToo movement at the beginning of his presidency, if he were to be elected. The former vice president previously sponsored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which aimed to protect victims of domestic violence.

The presidential candidate responded to the question about assaulting women by using the phrase “punching” repeatedly, apparently not thinking about the implications of using such a word.

“No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “So we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it. No, I really mean it.”

A few people laughed in the audience as he said this.

Biden added that it is important to pass the Violence Against Women Act, which has passed in the House and held up in the Senate. The former Vice President also suggested that America has to “fundamentally change the culture” of how women are treated, noting that it is “everyone’s responsibility.”

“It’s a gigantic issue, and we have to make it clear from the top, from the president on down that we will not tolerate it,” Biden said. “We will not tolerate this culture.”
