Slavery comes to Libya thanks to Hillary Clinton

 

Hillary is running around the world, mostly unreported, dissing Trump and heralding her wonderful foreign policy. If we wonder why we are up to our eyeballs in difficulty with bringing North Korea under control, we only have to look at  Libya and what happened to Gaddafi. Add Syria too, who was on their way to going nuclear until Israel bombed the heck out of their installations. Here is a memory by

Moonbattery:

Footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets.

And how did we get to this point? As the BBC reported back in May, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Moammar Gadhafi in October 2011.”

And who was behind that overthrow? None other than then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Not a used car, a piece of land, or an item of furniture. Not “merchandise” at all, but two human beings are seen in the video clip at CNN.

You broke it, Hillary. You own it.

Bush 43 had a deal with Gadhafi, according to which the dictator abandoned his weapons of mass destruction in return for not getting deposed. Obama and Hillary reneged on the deal, resulting in the creation of an ISIS/al Qaeda terrorist wonderland in a country that had been neutralized; a flood of largely unassimilable refugees into Europe; America becoming established in the international mind as untrustworthy, so that other dictators will be unlikely to follow Gadhafi’s lead and give up nuclear/biological weapons programs peaceably; and black African slavery.

Matt Lauer fired after Sexual Harassment complaint

Because it is now the day of reckoning… amazing that Ed Henry last weekend was hosting the Fox morning show about Sexual Harassment. He seems to have been given a pass. This was back in 2016. Just saying.

May 10, 2016 – Married White House chief correspondent for Fox News Ed Henry‘s future with the network is in doubt following a report that he sent a picture of…..

WNEP:

Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News on Wednesday after an employee filed a complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” the network announced.Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of the “Today” show, where Lauer has been an anchor for two decades.NBC News chairman Andrew Lack said in a memo to staff that it was the first complaint lodged against Lauer in his career at the network. But he said, “we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”

The Last Tradition  has this: Remember when Matt interviewed  Bill O’Reily?  Oh the irony. Lauer might have been interviewing himself.

The dangerous Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

 

What was called the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform bill was the progenitor of what is now known as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or CFPB. I see little in the news that actually tells us how horrific the powers are that were granted to it. I dug up a couple of old posts of mine when I was on the band wagon of trying to stop this bad boy.Recall the Third Circuit has ruled against the agency.

PHH wins landmark victory: CFPB ruled unconstitutional | 2016-10-11 …

What was once unthinkable actually happened, as the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit handed an earth-shattering victory to PHH, declaring the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s leadership structure unconstitutional and vacating a $103 million fine against PHH.

Here tis some of my oldie moldies.:

Dodd’s Bank Bill- It’s Nationalization worse than Obamacare

To put it bluntly but absolutely accurately, this bill sets up a mechanism for the Treasury Secretary, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to nationalize virtually any business they deem to be a threat to American “financial stability.”

Among its horrors are a massive new consumer agency with the power to track virtually every financial transaction to share with other big agencies like the IRS, onerous new restrictions on angel investorsand venture capital that greatly delay funding promising startup firms, proxy access provisions that would federalize state incorporation laws and empower unions and other progressive shareholders to wage director campaigns at the company and other shareholders’ expense, and no attempted reform of the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the center of the financial mess.

It is clear that the bill’s “orderly liquidation authority” would facilitate outright government seizure of a wide variety of firms with very limited judicial review.

The first clue of what the bill would do in this regard comes from one of the bill’s architects. House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, author of the similar financial bill that passed the House in December, has freely used the term “death panels” to describe the new powers the bills give the government over firms. In response to charges of “death panels“ in the health care bill, Frank responded that the panels were in the wrong bill. “Yes, we have death panels, but they got the death panels in the wrong bill,” Frank said on the House floor. “The death panels are in this bill.”

Defending against charges that the bills’ new mechanism to wind down firm will lead to taxpayer bailouts, Frankwrote in the Huffington Post that under this authority, “Shareholders are wiped out, unsecured creditors are out of luck, management and every employee that is not required to shut down the company is fired.” What Frank and other of the bills’ architects don’t say — not even in liberal venues like the Huffington Post — is that the bills also give the government these same powers to take over firms not seeking any kind of government aid.

Section 203 of Title II of the bill empowers the Secretary of Treasury, with a two-thirds vote from the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, to take into government “receivership” any “financial company” whose failure he determines “would have serious adverse effects on financial stability in the United States. “

Once the Treasury Secretary puts the company into “receivership” of the FDIC, the government may — under Section 210 — “take over the assets of and operate the covered financial company with all of the powers of the members or shareholders, the directors, and the officers of the covered financial company, and conduct all business of the covered financial company,” “perform all functions of the covered financial company, in the name of the covered financial company,” and “ provide for the exercise of any function by any member or stockholder, director, or officer of any covered financial com1pany for which the Corporation has been appointed as receiver under this title.” http://biggovernment.com/jberlau/2010/05/11/dodds-bank-bill-worse-than-obamacare-its-the-nationalization-stupid/ It wasn’t enought that Dodd and his buddy Barney Frank required Fannie and Freddie Mac to cover loans to those who could never pay. Let’s finish private enterprise once and for all.

Dodd-Frank Financial “Reform” Violates Property Rights and Equal-Protection Guarantees

Here is a superbly documented post regarding the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform bill. While our attention is diverted these days, good news is that that portions of this  bill are being challenged in the Courts. We can only hope for some good smack downs soon. Here tis:

Last week, I described how the Dodd-Frank financial “reform” law passed last summer violates constitutionalseparation-of-powers safeguards by giving unaccountable bureaucrats the power to seize companies and legislate through administrative fiat.  But that is not the only way Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution.  It also violates property rights and equal-protection guarantees.

For example, it contains racial preferences that were criticized by members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. It “imposes race and gender employment quotas on the financial industry,” noted economist Diana Furchtgott-Roth in the Washington Examiner. Its ”Section 342 states that race and gender employment ratios must be observed by all government agencies that regulate the financial sector, as well as private financial institutions that do business with the government.”

This unconstitutional requirement is the brainchild of Los Angeles Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the Castro-loving, left-wing ideologue who earlier praised the Los Angeles race riots that destroyed scores of Korean-owned businesses as an “uprising” against injustice. Waters once told a CEO in a public Congressional hearing, “This liberal will be all about socializing . . . .uh, uh . . . would be about, basically, taking over and the government running all of your companies.”

Law Professor Richard Epstein notes that Dodd-Frank is also an unconstitutional “taking” of private property, since it deliberately forces certain banks to process debit card transactions at a loss. (That provision is being challenged in a lawsuit called TCF Bank v. Bernanke. Debit cards did not contribute to the financial crisis in any way, but Dodd-Frank regulates them at the behest of large businesses that objected to being charged any fee by banks for processing debit card payments. Thanks to Dodd-Frank, some customers will now be charged annual fees for their debit cards.) More here at Open Markets

Dodd: Finance Reform – “No one knows how it will actually work”

“It’s a great moment. I’m proud to have been here,” said a teary-eyed Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), who as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee led the effort in the Senate. “No one will know until this is actually in place how it works. But we believe we’ve done something that has been needed for a long time. It took a crisis to bring us to the point where we could actually get this job done.” Right, never let a crisis pass you by.

The “White Nuclear Family promotes White Supremacy” says Prof

 

The White Nuclear Family is going the way of all the former extinct mammals, but let’s have our University Profs push it along. So kiddies, off to Planned Parenthood you go, and forget about having Children:

A City University of New York sociology professor reportedly said in a tweetstorm last week that “the white-nuclear family” promotes racism, prompting a backlash on social media.

 

She added: “White people: do you own your home? When you die, where’s wealth in that house going? If it’s to your children, you’re reproducing (inequality).”

Jessie Daniels, described as an expert on “the Internet manifestations of racism” on her CUNY page, infuriated social media users after reportedly saying that white families promote racism by default.

The professor began her argument saying she learned that “the white-nuclear family is one of the most powerful forces supporting white supremacy,” adding that families “reproducing white children” are “part of the problem” as they facilitate white supremacy in the country, Campus Reform reported.

Washington Post reporter attends top secret Soros meeting to advance agenda

 

Thanks to everyone for the Thanksgiving well wishes..back from a lovely holiday with friends and family. Let us not rest, but keep the torch of liberty aflame. Snuff out the liberal media’s lies and deceit. How about this one for a start? :

Allegedly unbiased Washington Post reporter Janell Ross spoke at a top-secret meeting of liberal movers and shakers last week, where Democratic donors including billionaire George Soros outlined the future of their progressive agenda.

A Post spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon that Ross took part of the California event “without notifying her superiors that she would be attending.”

The Democracy Alliance, which hosted the event, bills itself as “the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States” on the group’s official website. The liberal group also claims to “play a leading role in fostering the infrastructure necessary to advance a progressive agenda” in the United States.

The group intended to keep “the identities of its members and guests confidential,” according to the Beacon, but the paper obtained a “detailed conference agenda that lists both events and featured guests.” Once the Beacon revealed the attendees, the group reportedly beefed up security and asked participants to keep details off social media.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so blessed.

New FBI McCabe Email dump reveals McCabe’s conflict review

 

This is about as close to a slam dunk on “outing” FBI McCabe as the political hack that he is and that now we will have the necessary proof. The documents are stunning. Better yet proof that “Comey had no issue with it.”  The outstanding question is why is Sessions so silent and remains seemingly disinterested in the obvious conflicts of interest. Anyone who saw the Hannity Program the other night in which the guest made the side comment that Sessions has much to explain as well regarding the Uranium deal. One wonders if the FBI informant’s documents may have the name Sessions somehow involved. How else to explain it. Here are snippets from Zero Hedge. Wander over for the full reveal:

 

Judicial Watch has just dumped a new treasure trove of FBI emails regarding Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s conflict check relative to the Clinton email investigation (for those who missed it, Zero Hedge reviewed all of McCabe’s many scandals here: “FBI Director McCabe Subject Of Three Separate Federal Inquiries Into Alleged Misconduct: Report“).   Ironically, this particular FOIA request was filed in October 2016 under the Obama administration but they apparently just “didn’t have time” to get to it.

Among other things, the new FOIA dump reveals a panicked FBI’s efforts to enlist the support of an army of lawyers and public relations personnel to deal with the original Wall Street Journal article (see: “Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife“) that first revealed McCabe’s ties to the Clintons and his simultaneous oversight of the Clinton email investigation.

But perhaps none of the newly revealed emails from Judicial Watch today are more important than the following one in which McCabe describes how FBI Director Comey was breifed on his ties to the Clintons just days before his wife announced her Senate bid (and subsequently received roughly $700,000 in political donations for Clinton-friendly PACs) and then confirmed that he “has no issue with it.”

An October 23, 2016, email shows McCabe running the response effort to a Wall Street Journal article that was published that day, titled “Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife.” McCabe provides Michael Kortan, the assistant director of Public Affairs, his version of a timeline of events surrounding the Clinton investigation and his wife’s campaign. McCabe said he contacted then-FBI Chief of Staff Chuck Roseburg about Jill McCabe’s candidacy and was told that “the D [Comey] has no issue with it.” (Judicial Watch earlier this month released documents showing that McCabe finally did recuse himself from the Clinton investigation only a week before last year’s presidential election.)

 

Internally, the Wall Street Journal article started a flurry of emails among Mrs. McCabe’s campaign, Kortan, Director McCabe, and the FBI’s General Counsel. Part of that exchange is an email from McCabe to someone in the General Counsel’s Office: “Sucks pretty much. Buckle in. It’s going to get rough.” The colleague responds, “I know. It’s awful. I shouldn’t be shocked by now, but I really am appalled.” McCabe also forwarded the article to Comey who responded, “Copy.”

 

On October 24, 2016, a memo was sent to all Special Agents in Charge, Assistant Directors, Executive Directors and the General Counsel’s Office regarding the Wall Street Journal article discussing campaign activities concerning Mrs. McCabe. Kortan suggested that questions could be referred to his office and he attached an “Overview of Deputy Director McCabe’s Recusal Related To Dr. McCabe’s Campaign for Political Office.” The Overview itself was previously reported by Judicial Watch.

 

Meanwhile, the documents also show repeated use of the official FBI email system in connection with Mrs. McCabe’s political campaign.

On March 13, 2015, Mrs. McCabe emails to her husband’s official FBI email account a draft press release announcing her run for state Senate.

In August 2015, McCabe uses his official FBI email account to advise a redacted recipient to visit his wife’s campaign website: “Jill has been busy as hell since she decided to run for VA state senate (long story). Check her out on Facebook as Dr. Jill McCabe for Senate.”

On November 2, 2015, Mrs. McCabe forwards an email to her husband – then the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Office – that accuses her opponent of extorting local businessmen. The email was sent to her husband’s official FBI account.

In summarizing these latest revelations, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said “these new documents show that the FBI leadership was politicized and compromised in its handling of the Clinton email investigation…it’s well past time for a do-over on the Clinton emails that requires a new, honest criminal investigation of her misconduct.”

Girl Scouts tell parents – your daughter doesn’t owe anyone a hug

I seem to be back in business… got a late post in yesterday in case you missed it. Al Franken cut from PBS honoring David Letterman, but Letterman’s scandal?

Now on to the Girl Scouts on instilling a moral compass and values into our little girls. Will boys/men even want to be around girls and women by the time we get done with this trip we seem to be on. A chaperone at all times apparently. Turning our kids into unfeeling automatons.

KHQ.com –

The Girl Scouts issued a warning to parents on their website Monday asking them to think twice before forcing their daughters to hug or kiss relatives at holiday gatherings.

“Have you ever insisted, ‘Uncle just got here—go give him a big hug!’ or ‘Auntie gave you that nice toy, go give her a kiss,’ when you were worried your child might not offer affection on her own? If yes, you might want to reconsider the urge to do that in the future,” the organization posted in an article titled “Reminder: She Doesn’t Owe Anyone a Hug. Not Even at the Holidays.

“Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she “owes” another person any type of physical affection when they’ve bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life.”

The Girl Scouts’ post encourages parents to offer their daughters ways to show gratitude that do not require physical contact, including “a smile, a high-five, or even an air kiss.”

Al Franken cut from PBS honoring David Letterman, but Letterman’s scandal?

Right now, my internet is limited to the Library.. sorry folks for the lack of posting, but I have been at the ready. Let’s look at an oldie moldie post I did waaay back in 2009 just for the memory. First from Weasel Zippers that got my mind clicking……

Letterman had his own scandal in 2009.

Via NY Post:

Sen. Al Franken has been cut out of a TV special honoring comedian David Letterman following an accusation by a former model and Los Angeles radio news host that he kissed and groped her during a USO tour in 2006, according to a report.

The Minnesota Democrat filmed the PBS special “David Letterman: The Mark Twin Prize,” which was scheduled to air Monday, but the network edited him out, TV Line reported on Sunday.

​”​Senator Al Franken participated in the event, but will not appear substantially in the PBS program​. ​… PBS and WETA, the producing station, felt that the inclusion of Senator Franken in the broadcast at this time would distract from the show’s purpose as a celebration of American humor​,” PBS told TV Line.

David Letterman – Add to Hollyweird

“Here’s a guy who is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, who has dealt with cops and wiretaps and undercover investigations virtually his entire life,” defense lawyer Gerald Shargel said of Halderman on CBS’ “Early Show,” one of the morning shows he hit.

“There was a $2 million check. In the history of extortion, I don’t think there’s been a single case where the alleged extortionist took a check in payment. It just doesn’t make any sense.”

“Late Show” host called the whole thing “a very bizarre experience.”david-letterman-married-regina-lasko-wedding

You could say the same thing about his “bizarre” performance before an adoring studio audience that didn’t seem to realize the seriousness of the situation.

The audience laughed and cheered as Letterman used his usual assortment of funny expressions and hand gestures while describing what he called a “blackmail” attempt by a man who has since been identified as Emmy-winning CBS news producer Joe Halderman. Letterman said the accused extortionist threatened to reveal in a book and a movie that the host had sex with women who worked for him.

At times, the laughter and cheers seemed as inappropriate as Letterman’s occasional creepy attempts to joke about a very serious situation. In one case, the audience laughter even led to a joke. You almost wondered if members of the audience hated themselves later for laughing but couldn’t help it.

When Letterman said he had to go before a New York City grand jury to tell “all of the creepy things I’ve done,” the audience laughed.

David Letterman had secret bedroom above Ed Sullivan Theater, sez ex-‘Late Show’ stafferAn ex-“Late Show” intern unmasked herself Saturday as one of David Letterman‘s former flings – and sources revealed the randy funnyman keeps a bachelor pad atop the Ed Sullivan Theater.”I was madly in love with him at the time,” said Holly Hester. “I would have married him. He was hilarious.”

The NYU alum, who it appears went on to become a top Hollywood producer, told TMZ.com that the relationship started in the early ’90s when Letterman called and asked her on a date to the movies.A year-long, secret romance ensued, she said, until the funnyman called it off because of their age difference.

Hollywood once more, displays its appalling lack of normal human conventional behavior- whether Norman Polanski, or David Letterman, its  Ego,Ego,Ego. One can only wonder where the audience came from. America, where is the outrage for this outrageous disrepectful behavaior.
