Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff Tchen refuses Subpoena in Smollett Case

 

This looks like the typical Chicago collection of best pals. What do Michelle Obama, Tina Tchen, George Soros, Kim Foxx and Jussie Smollett have in common?

Nothing that money can’t buy apparently. Yesterday a Chicago judge ordered the court records regarding the sealed Smollett records unsealed.

Who was behind this idea of transferring to the FBI and why did whoever think this would work better than a Chicago investigation? Not known as the bastion of honesty. What is it she doesn’t want to tell? Does she really think she can avoid a Subpoena?

Let’s take a look. The fun begins.

Chicago attorney Tina Tchen — who was in contact with Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx before the charges were dropped against former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett — refused to be served with a subpoena on Wednesday, according to the process server.

Tchen, who previously served as former First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, refused to accept a subpoena that was issued by former Illinois Appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien.

O’Brien is petitioning for the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the state’s attorney’s office’s handling of the Smollett case. She is calling for Tchen to attend a May 31 hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse and bring with her copies of “any and all documents, notes, phone records, texts, tape recordings made or received at any time, concerning [Tchen’s] conversations with Kim Foxx in re: Jussie Smollett.”

Edward Ryan, who operates a private investigation firm in the southwest suburbs, said one of his process servers went to Tchen’s law firm in River North on Wednesday, but she refused to come to the lobby to accept the subpoena.

Ryan said the security guard in the building’s lobby would not let the process server upstairs. The guard called Tchen in her office and “she said she knew about” the subpoena, but refused to come down.

Enter one Tina Tchen:

Tina Tchen and Michelle Obama

She’s a close pal of Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett and a longtime bagwoman for Illinois Democrats. Tchen headed up the “Office of Public Engagement,” a murky outfit overseen by Jarrett that, among other things, had its hands in the Obama’s failed Chicago Crony-lympics bid and was in the middle of Obama administration efforts to recruit artists to advance their political agenda.

Pointed out in November 2009 that Tchen, a high-powered campaign finance bundler for Team Obama who personally raised more than $200,000 while a lawyer at Skadden Arps, is listed in White House visitor logs as having met there with none other than…  George Soros.

Enter one George Soros:

George Soros Spent $408k on Prosecutor in Jussie Smollett Case

 

George Soros

But Kim Foxx has also found two other sources of cash, in the form of twin $300,000 donations to a Super PAC supporting her called Illinois Safety & Justice. The sole donors to the PAC are neoliberal superdonor and conservative-boogeyman George Soros and a “dark-money” group called Civic Participation Action Fund. A Super PAC is a fundraising group, created by the 2010 Supreme Court Citizens United decision, that can raise as much money as they want for any candidate or cause—as long as they don’t coordinate on any level with political campaigns, which have much smaller campaign limits.

Other than this, all is well in the swamp.

Media sensation Michael Avenatti falls, yet the media lacks self reflection

 

Just a few short moments ago, the darling of the media, Michael Avenatti, was going to become the next President of the USA or so the media thought. They simply just could not get enough of him.

The latest:

Avenatti faced multiple indictments Wednesday for allegedly committing fraud and aggravated identity theft related to his former adult film star Stephanie Clifford, professionally known as Stormy Daniels.

He is accused of forging Daniels’ signatureand using fake documents to persuade an agent to divert over a quarter-of-a-million dollars in payment from the porn star’s book advance.

Stephanie Ruhle, “I am intrigued, I’m excited, I’m scared, I’m a little grossed out. And you know what? I owe Michael Avenatti an apology. For the last few weeks, I’ve been saying, ‘Enough, already, Michael, I’ve seen you everywhere. What do you have left to say?’ I was wrong, brother. You have a lot to say. The Democrats could learn something from you. You are messing with Trump a lot more than they are.”

That was one of 147 appearances Avenatti made MSNBC and CNN during a 10-week period around the time of Ruhle’s comments. These platform gave him ample opportunity to attack the president and gain attention for doing so. (RELATED: CNN Hosts Avenatti 59 Times In Two Months)

If ever there was a chance for a learning experience for the media, this was it. The clues were there everywhere. He was a fraud, a jokester. Anyone with half a brain knew this was going to be a train wreck.

Will the media spend a moment in self reflection on this debacle? Doubtful, as they continue to proceed headlong with the Trump Russia Russia Russia nonsense.

Apparently facts are simply troublesome things, to be discarded in the name of the Progressive agenda.

Pennsylvania immense voter fraud – and we are worried about Russia?

 

Pennsylvania just went through another primary yesterday. How much the outcome reflected the opinion of “true” and legal voters remains up for grabs. If anyone is worried about non-citizens voting, check out what it takes to register. No ID necessary. No address? No problem, just pick a spot on a map on the printed form. All you need to do is tell them the last four digits of your Social Security number.  11,000 they say, I suggest digging deeper. This should curl your hair.

A new investigation has revealed that more than 11,000 non-citizens living in the state of Pennsylvania are currently registered to vote, despite not being legally eligible – illustrating once again that election fraud is rampant throughout our country.

Claiming a “glitch” in the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) registration system, officials in Pennsylvania admit that many people living in the state are voting in elections when they shouldn’t be – including in the most recent mid-terms, which appear to have been wrought with fraud and corruption in favor of Democrats.

Though it took a while to get Governor Tom Wolf, a Democrat, to actually cooperate, Representative Daryl Metcalfe, a Republican who previously chaired a House government oversight panel, was able to unearth evidence proving that illegal voters are meddling in the state’s elections.

Rep. Metcalfe led the charge to obtain the documents showing this large number of illegal voters on the rolls in Pennsylvania – which Gov. Wolf tried, but failed, to keep hidden from the public. That’s because illegal voters are the bread and butter of how Democrats win elections, these days.

“Demonstrating, much less discussing, noncitizen voting activity is the worst form of heresy one can commit for left-wing groups,” says Logan Churchwell, Director of the Public Interest Legal Foundation.

With tens of thousands of illegals discovered to be registered to vote across multiple states, we now know the 2018 mid-term elections were a FRAUD.

The situation is even worse in Texas, it turns out, where some 100,000 non-citizens are currently on the state’s voter rolls, according to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. After comparing state driver’s license records, which indicate immigration status, alongside voter rolls, officials found that at least 95,000 people are registered to vote who shouldn’t be – and at least 58,000 of them have voted in elections since 1996.

“This shows the urgent need for citizenship verification for voting,” warns Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, adding that these two reports out of Pennsylvania and Texas are just “the tip of the iceberg.”

“The Department of Justice should follow up with a national investigation,” he says.

District Court Judge struck down proposed law to require citizenship documentation in order to vote

California, Florida, and various other states have similarly been caught registering non-citizens to vote, which is why some are now pushing for voter registration requirements to include mandatory proof of citizenship – as, currently, no state in the Union requires such proof in order for a person to register to vote.

Supreme Gorsuch sides with Liberals again on Indian hunting case

 

Another disappointing ruling by our changed latest Supreme Gorsuch. One can only imagine where this will lead in other Indian cases if the USA is bound to treaties written centuries ago. Better yet, apparently the issue had been ruled on before. So much for “settled Law.” Even better, wait until we have to give back much of the Southwest to Mexico.

 

The four dissenting justices said the majority was ignoring a clear precedent — a similar case in 1895 involving the same treaty language and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes.

 

Wyoming can’t abrogate an 1868 treaty with the Crow Tribe just because it was signed before Wyoming officially became a state, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a case breathing new life into American Indian-U.S. relations.

The ruling contradicts a century-old high court precedent and could guarantee American Indians’ hunting rights on some federal lands.

The case was brought by Clayvin Herrera, a member of the Crow Tribe, whom Wyoming charged with offseason hunting in 2014 after state officials discovered him and other tribe members hunting bull elk on the Big Horn National Forest, discarding the bodies and taking the heads for trophies.

Mr. Herrera argued he was permitted to hunt on the land, citing the treaty that guaranteed American Indians “the right to hunt on unoccupied lands of the United States so long as game may be found thereon.”

Crow leaders signed the treaty in 1868, handing over roughly 30 million acres to settlers while retaining about 8 million acres.

Lower courts agreed, but the justices, in a 5-4 ruling, sided with Mr. Herrera on Monday, saying the treaty is good law. Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, President Trump’s replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, sided with the court’s four Democratic appointed justices.

Senator Feinstein caught talking to Iran on unsecure IPhone

If we thought the latest kerfuffle over Kerry’s mixing into foreign policy regarding Iran recently was a Logan problem, add the concept of Feinstein walking around congress on an unsecured line talking on her IPhone to Iranian Prime Minister Zarif.

The same Zarif that Kerry is so involved with. Keep in mind, Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. His best man at the ceremony was the son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Zarif was also Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

First just for old times sake:

Kerry and his Iranian in-law relatives. Could he be black mailed?

But back to the business at hand. A portion of the take down by Mark Levin that is well worth hearing the full thing.

LevinTV host Mark Levin called out the hypocrisy of the Democrats after Sen. Dianne Feinstein, was caught on the phone with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif earlier Thursday, and the media said nothing.

“He’s the foreign minister to an enemy state that seeks to attack American military personnel in the Middle East, that seeks to put nuclear warheads on ICBMs so they can reach the United States. It is a terrorist regime, an Islamo-Nazi regime in Tehran, that has killed Americans, that funds Hezbollah to kill Americans, that funds Hamas to kill, and is a threat to our national security, obviously,” Levin said. “What in the hell is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee doing talking on an iPhone around the Capitol to Javad Zarif?”

“What is it with these Democrats fronting for this Islamo-Nazi regime that wants to kill Americans and Jews in Israel? You’ve got Frankenfeinstein, you’ve got … John Kerry — or the real Frankenstein — giving aid and comfort to the enemy! It’s not enough that they released $150 billion to this regime; now they’re giving it advice, against the president of the United States. You want to talk about the Logan Act? You want to talk about collusion?”

Levin pointed out that the media, of course, has said nothing about Feinstein’s phone call.

“Don Trump Jr. has a meeting with a couple of Russians, meeting turns out to nothing, and it’s the crime of the century. Except Mueller says it’s not, but the media says it is. You have Dianne Frankenfeinstein on her damn cell phone with the foreign minister of Iran! Anybody want to know what they discussed? ‘No, no, that’s Dianne, we like her,’” Levin said.   H/T: Blazing Press

 

Sunday Respite – Told to the Heart

How much of the Solar System must we leave as a preserve?

 

The latest to worry the wacko left. Overuse of the Solar System. How soon before the kiddies in school start being driven to protest this activity?

Space Mining Could Ruin Our Solar System If We Don’t Establish Protected Places Now, Researchers Warn.

A study finds that it is in peril of overexploitation:

The study, published April 16 in the journal Acta Astronautica, makes a case for designating 85% of our solar system a protected “wilderness” akin to Earth’s national parks, leaving just one-eighth of eligible planets, moons and asteroids free to be mined or developed by human interests.

According to the study,humans could deplete the solar system of all of its water, iron and other mineable resources in a matter of centuries — potentially leaving the solar system a dried-up wasteland in as little as 500 years.

“Then, we are done,” warn the authors.

Highlights

Solar System resources are vast, but finite.
Normal exponential growth suggests 400 years before exhaustion is approached.
Prudent to adopt a “1/8 Principle” as a tripwire: “Do not exploit >1/8 of solar system”.
Rest should be left as Wilderness.
Many ethical and practical questions must then be dealt with.

“How much of the Solar System should we reserve as wilderness, off-limits to human development?” We make a general argument that, as a matter of fixed policy, development should be limited to one eighth, with the remainder set aside. We argue that adopting a “one-eighth principle” is far less restrictive, overall, than it might seem. One eighth of the iron in the asteroid belt is more than a million times greater than all of the Earth’s currently estimated iron ore reserves, and it may well suffice for centuries. A limit of some sort is necessary because of the problems associated with exponential growth.

For the convoluted math wander over to the “journal” link Acta Astronautica,
