loose lips-Biden money trail exposed 
in court documents
 
by wnd.com:  Primarily through his son Hunter, former vice president and now 2020 presidential candidate loose lips-Joe Biden has been “offshoring” corruption, contends investigative journalist and author Peter Schweizer... He explains in the first episode of a new series called “The Drill Down with Peter Schweizer” that bank documents entered in a court case “shed light on just how much money foreign oligarchs were sending to the loose lips-Biden family while he was vice president.” As WND reported in an interview story, Schweizer’s 2018 bestselling book “Secret Empires: How Our Politicians Hide Corruption and Enrich Their Families and Friends” spells out the financial deals Hunter loose lips-Biden’s private equity firm secured in Ukraine and China while his father, as vice president, was negotiating U.S. foreign policy with those countries.  Schweizer’s book centers on what he calls “corruption by proxy,” in which family and friends of powerful political figures position themselves as middlemen, creating “previously unimaginable pathways to wealth.” Regarding the loose lips-Bidens, the records of just one bank account show $3.1 million from the Ukrainians flowed in over an 18-month period, Schweizer said. “There was $142,000 that showed up from a Kazakh oligarch, and then there was a mysterious $1.2 million from a limited liability company that nobody seems to know where it exists and that funneled the money to a small Swiss bank that has been implicated in international money laundering,” Schweizer said. Flowing out of the account, he said, is “hundreds of thousands of dollars into the personal banking accounts of Hunter loose lips-Biden himself.”...

California Health Care Heist
by Lloyd Billingsley
frontpagemag.com } ~ Fresh off his visit to constituents in El Salvador last month, California Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to spend $98 million on health care for illegal immigrants ages 19-26 through the state’s Medi-Cal program... Assembly Democrats want to spend $3.4 billion to cover all illegals over the age of 19, and Senate Democrats want to cover illegals 19-26, plus those beyond the age of 65. Costs are not a factor, Democrats say, because the state has a projected surplus of more than $21 billion. Los Angeles Democrat Maria Elena Durazo, who supports the senate bill, told reporters the illegals she wants taxpayers to support “work in our hotels, they work picking the fruit and vegetables, they work as landscapers, they work in hospitals. I don’t think they should be treated differently from other Californians.” It was classic stuff the Democrats never bother to unpack. The “other” Californians did not violate U.S. immigration laws and neither did they perpetrate document fraud and identity theft to get public benefits. Many of the “other” Californians are not exactly thrilled with the prospect of funding health benefits for foreign nationals living illegally in the United States. Those overtures are linked with another recent development in the Golden State. As the Sacramento Bee reports, the automatic voter registration program known as “motor voter,” through the Department of Motor Vehicles, “last year raced to the finish line even though they acknowledged they should have slowed down.” DMV officials are “still answering for 105,000 voter registration errors that occurred in the early months of Motor Voter.” The DMV requested a July 2, 2018 launch date but Secretary of State Alex Padilla “pushed for Motor Voter to be rolled out ahead of the June primaries to boost turnout for a high-interest midterm election.” At Padilla’s request, the DMV launched Motor Voter on April 16, 2018, and he speeded up the process “for the purposes of enfranchising as many Californians as possible in time for an upcoming election.” According to the Bee report, “5,000 transmittal errors caused hundreds of people who wanted to vote to not be registered in time for the midterm elections.” As the “other Californians” know, those automatically registered to vote included illegals. Padilla’s goal was one million “new” voters on the rolls by the 2018 midterms. On the other hand, Padilla is not saying how many newly registered illegals actually voted in the 2018 midterms... Why can't Calif leaders help their neighbors, the homeless and clean up their streets.

Team Pulosi Accuses Trump Of Posting 
'Doctored' Video Of Her Stammering; 
NBC: There's Just One Problem
by James Barrett
dailywire.com } ~ The bitter feud between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pulosi continues to escalate, with new nicknames, new accusations and counter-accusations... and, now, a new video posted by the president that Pulosi's team decried as "doctored" but that NBC News notes appears to simply be a montage of the speaker's stammering.  Amid Pulosi's accusations that Trump threw a "temper tantrum" in a closed-door meeting with Democrats and is engaged in a "cover-up," Trump tweeted a video aired on Fox Business' "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that is a 30-second montage of Pulosi stammering repeatedly over the course of a 20-minute news conference Thursday. In response, Pulosi's Chief of Staff Drew Hammill accused the president of posting a "doctored video." "Hours before the posting of this doctored video, @washingtonpost reports that doctored Pulosi videos are multiplying across social media," he wrote, referencing a Post report on a different video circulating on social media. Pulosi's daughter Christine Pulosi also declared the video a "fake." "Fake video altered for speed- just like you did to Acosta," she wrote, a reference to the infamous Acosta video, which Trump critics said was deliberately "doctored," an accusation further analysis debunked. "Dig deeper — you can give the presidency more respect than this."...   https://www.dailywire.com/news/47634/team-pelosi-accuses-trump-post...

Soon to be Released Declassified Docs Show Samantha Power Used UN Position To Target American Citizens, Including General Flynn
by Pamela Geller
{freedomoutpost.com} ~As predicted in my 2010 book, The Post American Presidency, the scumbag/liar-nObama presidency was the most vicious, antisemtic, anti-American administration in American history... They were mad with it, sick with it. Obsessed with it. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testified last fall behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee as part of its Russia probe, and  one of the big unanswered questions will be why, during her final year as chief U.S. envoy to the U.N., she apparently made hundreds of requests for the unmasking in U.S. intelligence intercepts of the identities of American citizens. Those identities are closely guarded under Fourth Amendment constitutional protection, and one of lawmakers’ chief concerns, according to Jason Chaffetz, former chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform “is the overall perceived ramp-up in the number of unmasking requests” during a sensitive election year.…..Chaffetz told Fox News, “the U.N. is a highly suspicious perch from which those requests were made.” Breaking: Samantha Power targeted any call made about Israeli settlements for unmasking. When she found General Flynn making calls she opposed, she passed information to liar-Sally Yates who opened Logan Act investigation...   https://freedomoutpost.com/soon-to-be-released-declassified-docs-sh...

House Republican blocks 
$19.1 billion disaster aid package
by Susan Ferrechio
washingtonexaminer.com } ~ A House Republican blocked the passage of a $19.1 billion disaster relief package that lawmakers hoped to send to President Trump’s desk after months of partisan fighting had stalled the money... Final passage will now have to wait until the week of June 3, when House lawmakers return from a recess. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, opposed passing the measure by unanimous consent, delaying consideration until the House returns. Democrats hoped to approve the spending measure by unanimous consent, which does not require a roll-call vote. Republicans are in the minority, so Democrats will be able to pass the measure with a roll-call vote when lawmakers return. The measures stalled despite a bipartisan accord struck between leaders in the House and Senate, and after Trump agreed to lift some demands that had been holding up the bill. Other lawmakers also agreed to drop some of their funding requests that were stalling talks. Roy cited the high price tag for the measure, arguing it deserved floor debate. He also pointed to the lack of funding needed to deal with a humanitarian crisis on the border that the president had been seeking. The House could attempt to pass the measure once again in the next pro forma session on Thursday, but it would again invite a possible GOP objection. Democrats denounced the move. “House Republicans’ last-minute sabotage of an overwhelmingly bipartisan disaster relief bill is an act of staggering political cynicism," Speaker Nancy Pulosi, D-Calif., said. "Countless American families hit by devastating natural disasters across the country will now be denied the relief they urgently need."...

No, Abortion Isn't a Constitutional Right

Ben Shapiro
 

In the past several weeks, a bevy of states have passed extensive new restrictions on abortion. Alabama has effectively banned abortion from point of conception. Georgia has banned abortion from the time a heartbeat is detected, as have Ohio, Kentucky and Mississippi. Missouri has banned abortion after eight weeks. Other states are on the move as well.

This has prompted paroxysms of rage from the media and the political left — the same folks who celebrated when New York passed a law effectively allowing abortion up until point of birth and who defended Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s perverse statements about late-term abortion. According to these thinkers, conservatives have encroached on a supposed “right to abortion” inherent in the Constitution.

This, of course, is a lie. There is no “right to abortion” in the Constitution. The founders would have been appalled by such a statement. The Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade (1973) is a legal monstrosity by every available metric: As legal scholar John Hart Ely wrote, Roe “is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.” The court’s rationale is specious; the court relied on the ridiculous precedent in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965) that a broad “right to privacy” can be crafted from “penumbras, formed by emanations.” Then the court extended that right to privacy to include the killing of a third party, an unborn human life — and overrode state definitions of human life in the process.

How? The court relied on the self-contradictory notion of “substantive due process” — the belief that a law can be ruled unconstitutional under the Fifth and 14th amendments so long as the court doesn’t like the substance of the law. That’s asinine, obviously. The due process provision of both amendments was designed to ensure that state and federal government could not remove life, liberty or property without a sufficient legal process, not to broadly allow courts to strike down state definitions of conduct that justify removal of life, liberty and property. As Justice Clarence Thomas has written, “The Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause is not a ‘secret repository of substantive guarantees against "unfairness.”’“

Nonetheless, the notion that such a right to abortion is enshrined in America’s moral fabric has taken hold among the intelligentsia. Thus, we now experience the odd spectacle of those on the political left declaring that the Constitution enshrines a right to abortion — yet does not include a right to bear arms, a right to freedom of political speech, a right to retain property free of government seizure or a right to practice religion.

For much of the left, then, the term "constitutional right” has simply come to mean “thing I want.” And that is incredibly dangerous, given that the power of the judiciary springs not from legislative capacity but from supposed interpretive power. Judges are not supposed to read things into the Constitution but to properly read the Constitution itself. The use of the judiciary as a club has led to a feeling of radical frustration among Americans; it has radically exacerbated our culture gap.

The legislative moves in Alabama and other states will open a much-needed debate about the role of the states, the role of legislatures and the role of government. All of that is good for the country. Those who insist, however, that the Supreme Court act as a mechanism for their political priorities are of far more danger to the country than that debate.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
