Rosenstein’s 300 Attorneys ‘helped’ vet Kavanaugh – now Sexual abuse charges

 

Rosentein usurps Sessions last July and asks 300 U.S. Attorneys to Vet Kavanaugh!! His little elves have been very very busy. Each attorney was to supply three to “help.”

Rosenstein’s email subject line sent last July to 93 US Attorney’d read, “Personal Message to U.S. Attorneys

From the Deputy A.G.,” and included the sentence, “We need your help in connection with President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court.”

 

 

Apparently I am the only one that saw a red flag. So Rosenstein set himself up as the “reviewer.” Isn’t it simply amazing first it was said the FBI took a look at the allegations, now the FBI will “look into it.” Feinstein gives the FBI the letter in July. Rosenstein takes over vetting in July.

Too clever by twice. Let me give you a redo of Rosenstein’s operation as I reported previously. First:

According to the Post, Ford initially refrained from revealing the alleged information of a horrendous sexual assault due to privacy concerns for herself and her family.

But she thought it was her duty to come forward on the record after the advice of Washington lawyer Debra Katz. Katz, however, has a long history of dismissing sexual assault allegations against liberal politicians, donating to left-wing causes, and even publicly demonizing all Trump advisors as “miscreants” who are worse than deplorables. The Washington Post

Here is my post

AG Rosenstein asks Federal Prosecutors to ‘help’ with Kavanaugh paperwork!! WTH!

Where the heck is Sessions!! Rosenstein wants to delay the process!! I know my readers are tired of my posts on Kavanaugh, but this took me over the edge! Where are the media reports?? Hundreds of Prosecutors to review documents? Three hundred? Federal Prosecutors?? Never before! Comment:

Uh, because Rosenstein works for Mueller and their intimate goal is impeachment.
And if this nomination goes through you can throw impeachment out the window.

Rosenstein is asking for help stalling the confirmation through sabotage.
Its part of the coup:

In an unusual request, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asked federal prosecutors to help review documents of President Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Rosenstein’s email subject line sent to 93 US Attorney’d read, “Personal Message to U.S. Attorneys From the Deputy A.G.,” and included the sentence, “We need your help in connection with President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court.”

The New York Times reported:

 Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday.

Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.

But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each office to provide up to three federal prosecutors “who can make this important project a priority for the next several weeks.” Names were to be submitted to Mr. Rosenstein’s office by the end of Wednesday.

Mr. Rosenstein’s email, which had the subject line “Personal Message to U.S. Attorneys From the Deputy A.G.,” included the sentence, “We need your help in connection with President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court.”

According to Christopher Hunter, a former FBI agent and federal prosecutor, “It’s flat-out wrong to have career federal prosecutors engaged in a political process like the vetting of a Supreme Court nominee. It takes them away from the mission they’re supposed to be fulfilling, which is effective criminal justice enforcement,” The New York Times reported.

Snip…

Judge Kavanaugh will replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Rosenstein knows President Trump can take Mueller all the way up to the Supreme Court so it appears he is doing everything he can to delay the confirmation to prevent Trump from cementing a conservative majority which could ultimately put an end to the Russia witch hunt.
Overall it is unnecessary to for Rosenstein to vet Judge Kavanaugh at all because he should have already been vetted in order to hold his current position –

Rosenstein is one of Deep State’s most criminal and corrupt players.  He should be in jail rather than putting innocent Americans in jail or slandering them.

Vatican wheels and deals with China, meantime, China shutting down churches

 

It’s interesting that the AP just yesterday was reporting on the crack down on Christianity. At the same time, The Pope is wheeling and dealing with China.

In deference to my Catholic readers I have deferred on commenting on much of the Vatican’s dealings and goings on. Catholicism is a personal matter. Let the Catholics deal with their Socialist. But this one is a puzzle that I can’t ignore. Is this a Protestant versus Catholic deal?Any thoughts?

Is Tawain on the table as far as recognition? What has Rome promised for this? The same as Goggle? Excuse me for being cynical. What’s the deal? First the AP news:

 

BEIJING (AP) — China’s government is ratcheting up a crackdown on Christian congregations in Beijing and several provinces, destroying crosses, burning bibles, shutting churches and ordering followers to sign papers renouncing their faith, according to pastors and a group that monitors religion in China.

The campaign corresponds with a drive to “Sinicize” religion by demanding loyalty to the officially atheist Communist Party and eliminating any challenge to its power over people’s lives.

Bob Fu of the U.S.-based group China Aid said over the weekend that the closure of churches in central Henan province and a prominent house church in Beijing in recent weeks represents a “significant escalation” of the crackdown.

“The international community should be alarmed and outraged for this blatant violation of freedom of religion and belief,” he wrote in an email.

Under President Xi Jinping, China’s most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, religious believers are seeing their freedoms shrink dramatically even as the country undergoes a religious revival. Experts and activists say that as he consolidates his power, Xi is waging the most severe systematic suppression of Christianity in the country since religious freedom was written into the Chinese constitution in 1982.

Fu also provided video footage of what appeared to be piles of burning bibles and forms stating that the signatories had renounced their Christian faith. He said that marked the first time since Mao’s radical 1966-1976 Cultural Revolution that Christians had been compelled to make such declarations, under pain of expulsion from school and the loss of welfare benefits.

A Christian pastor in the Henan city of Nanyang said crosses, bibles and furniture were burned during a raid on his church on Sept. 5.

And then we have this?

China and Vatican to Sign Landmark Deal Over Bishops
China and the Vatican are set to sign a landmark agreement later this month ending a long struggle between Beijing’s Communist rulers and the pope over who chooses the leaders of Catholicism in the world’s most populous country, according to two people familiar with the matter.Reactions to the deal, which gives both sides a say in appointing the church’s bishops in China, are likely to be sharply divided, with some hailing a diplomatic coup by the Vatican that draws China closer to the West and others warning of an important defeat for the principle of religious freedom.

The controversial deal would include the first official recognition by Beijing that the pope is the head of the Catholic Church in China. In return, Pope Francis would formally recognize seven excommunicated Chinese bishops who were appointed by the Communist government without Vatican approval.

Another take:

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Vatican and China look set to sign a landmark agreement later this month intended to reunite China’s state-backed Catholic church with the “underground” church that is still loyal to Rome, and which operates without official state approval.

While the deal could still fall through or be delayed by “unforeseen events,” it could mean that Beijing recognizes the pope as the head of the Catholic Church in China, the paper said.

Such a concession would be matched by the recognition and rehabilitation of seven Chinese bishops who were excommunicated by the pope after being appointed by Beijing without the approval of the Vatican, it said.

A deal seems likely.

Feinstein and Rosenstein’s 300 Prosecutors work to find dirt on Kavanaugh

 

Apparently this last bit of “Show and Tell” from Diane Feinstein isn’t going anywhere or is it? We hear her latest info is being turned over to the White House. Of course it is. Let’s make it look like the Trump outfit is hiding something. Is this the last dud to be lobbed?

If so, it wasn’t for the lack of trying.

 

 

The New York Times reported:

 Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday.

Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement.

AG Rosenstein asks Federal Prosecutors to ‘help’ with Kavanaugh paperwork!! WTH!

 

Now the latest on the Feinstein do over:

The FBI is declining to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s connection to a Democratic senator’s mysterious claim that troubling ‘information’ had come to her – information reportedly concerning sexual misconduct when he was in high school.

The New York Times reported Thursday that Feinstein received a letter about the unspecified allegations against Kavanaugh ‘this summer’ – meaning she may have held onto it for dramatic effect at an inopportune moment for Republicans.

Debra Katz, a Washington, D.C. lawyer best known for representing women who make ‘#MeToo’-style accusations against powerful men, is reportedly representing the unnamed woman. Katz was seen leaving Capitol Hill on Wednesday night.

Feinstein is the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, which is considering Kavanaugh’s nomination.  Republicans are pushing to confirm him to the Supreme Court by Oct. 1, when its next term begins.

A tight-lipped Feinstein had released a cryptic statement saying that the woman who provided the information about Kavanaugh ‘strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision.’ More at the

Washington state refuses to allow coal export terminal, in legal battle with 6 states

 

Washington State via the court will try and stop the coal export terminal. This is a federal port. Just another in the list of judges who will put their nose into it. Stopping utility lines, laying pipelines and improving refineries, – don’t even consider building a new one. But forget the impact of the huge solar panels that fry birds in an instant. Wind farms that are equally as devastating. A wink and a nod to them. The list is endless. They would have us go back to being Hunter-Gatherers. First some history and what we need to remember at this election time, and then will include here what the wacko birds are trying to do. In this case, stopping exporting coal and costing thousands of jobs.

Keep in mind: There are 400 coal-powered electric plants in the United States. They generated 30 percent of the nation’s electricity.(Jul 31, 2015)  Some states like Ohio, 54 percent comes from coal.

McCarthy: “The hicks in flyover country were too stupid to understand that we were doing them a favor by killing their jobs”.

 

 

 

Recall this? This one says it all:

EPA Chief: ‘Hicks in flyover country too stupid that we were doing them a favor killing their jobs

She implement controversial environmental regulations such as the Clean Power Plan (CPP) — which are viewed as job-killers in coal country — and told reporters earlier this year that she gave up talking to “climate deniers.”

“I don’t check out flat Earth society and I’m not talking to climate deniers,” she said in October. “That’s it. Sorry, I know I’m supposed to be for everybody, but my patience has worn thin over eight years.”

 

Trump repeals coal mining regulations, signs legislation

In case we wonder why we elected Trump, and what will happen if we don’t support the man in November by electing conservatives. I give you a few of what we were up against and lucky for us, Trump won:

 

 

EPA ‘clean coal’ rule would increase power prices by 70 or 80 percent

An Obama administration official has said that the new clean coal rules could increase electricity prices by as much as 80 percent.
Dr. Julio Friedmann, the deputy assistant secretary for clean coal at the Department of Energy, told House lawmakers that the first generation of carbon capture and storage technology would increase wholesale electricity prices by “70 or 80 percent.”
The Obama administration’s plan to fight global warming includes limiting carbon dioxide from new power plants. In order for new coal-fired power plants to be built, however, they would need to install costly carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.

Obama’s war on coal hits our electric bill

EPA shuts down one of the largest Coal Mines in U.S.

Obama’s promise to bankrupt coal industry to cost 1,000 jobs in upper Midwest

 

Now the latest:

A lawsuit has pitted six landlocked states against Washington State over a simple question: Who owns the federal ports?

Washington State is denying the states the permits required to build a large coal export terminal along the Columbia River. The states have sued and Washington filed a motion for dismissal.

But U.S. District Court Judge Robert Bryan rejected Washington State’s motion, setting the stage for a legal showdown over who really gets final say over which products flow through the nation’s sea ports.

“We’re talking about the Constitution and the rule of law,” said Montana Attorney General Tim Fox, “One state can’t discriminate against another state’s commodities in this way.”

Montana and Wyoming are leading plaintiffs and two of the largest coal-producing states in the country. The Powder River Basin contains 2.5 billion tons of recoverable coal and currently supplies 40 percent of the coal used in the United States. But as many states wean themselves off of electricity from burning coal, coal companies are looking to boost exports, primarily to Asia. But they have a major problem: there are no ports along the West Coast currently set up to load coal onto ships.

Four other states, Kansas, Utah, South Dakota and Nebraska, have joined the lawsuit against Washington State.

The Millennium Bulk Terminal, proposed for the port in Longview, Wash., was supposed to solve that obstacle. It was designed to export 44 million metric tons of coal a year. Important allies and trading partners Japan and South Korea were eager to buy the coal. But after conducting an environmental impact study, the state of Washington denied the terminal a required water permit.

“I think we’re on sound ground,” said Washington’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee, “because we’re enforcing our environmental rules for clean air and noise and some other issues.”

Snip…

“It is insulting to all Washington residents that proponents of this facility have chosen to minimize and ridicule the impact diesel emissions from the largest operation of the largest coal export facility in North America would have had on the people of Cowlitz County,” said Ecology’s spokesman Dave Bennett.

But Governor Jay Inslee makes no secret of his disdain for coal. In his 2007 book, “Apollo’s Fire: Igniting America’s Clean Energy Economy,” Inslee wrote, “coal is killing us. If we fail to restrain growth of CO2 emissions all six billion of us on this little spaceship are at risk.”

He also wrote that coal and cars are in a race to be the greatest danger to our climate. And at a recent news conference in which he announced Washington state would file its 32nd lawsuit against the Trump Administration over the dismantling of president Obama’s Clean Power Plan, Inslee said: “We’re breathing smoke from Mississippi, we’re breathing smoke from the rest of the United States. We have an interest in reducing coal smoke from all over the United States.” More at Fox News

Bernie Sanders son defeated in primary, another child loses an election

 

One more of the offspring of the Sanders clan loses a political office bid. Buried and little discussed is the corruption that resides in this family. The FBI last I heard was investigating his wife over a phony land deal and bank fraud. This time the son loses. Earlier the daughter ran for Mayor and was rebuffed. Glad to hear that there is at least some sense left in Vermont. Let’s take a look.

 

Levi Sanders, the son of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was handily defeated on Tuesday night in his bid for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, a perennial swing district that was vacated by retiring Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH).

Chris Pappas, an openly gay member of the New Hampshire Executive Council, won the primary after also beating back Maura Sullivan, an Iraq War veteran and former Obama administration official who raised more money than him and had been criticized for moving to the state last year. When the race was called, Sanders was in seventh place out of eleven candidates.

The 1st District was won twice by former President Obama, by a slight margin in 2012, and then narrowly won by President Trump in 2016. In the last six elections, the House seat has changed party hands five times.  Daily Beast

 

Bernie Sanders Corrupt daughter ‘considers’ running for office!

Bernie Sanders’ Stepdaughter Considers Running For Mayor Of Burlington, Vermont

UPDATE: She ran, she lost.

Reads the headline… No where does the NY Post mention that she was funneled $500,000 as part of the Burlington college ripoff perpetrated by her mother. Another corrupt spawn of a Democrat who defies the laws of gravity with their hubris. Her mother and she should be in jail. Like mother like daughter…….. here is what she says first and then  B-ville plays it again post:

“In my mind it’s time to consider a new direction for Burlington and a new vision and I am exploring whether it’s the right time for that, if there are others who feel the same way and also if it’s the right time for me,” Driscoll said.

Driscoll volunteered for Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. She also founded the Vermont Woodworking School in Fairfax and is a mother of two, both factors she is considering as she weighs a run.“Mostly in that I am deeply committed to issues of social and economic and racial justice, and that for me, sitting on the sidelines when it feels there’s work to be done, is very challenging,” she said. “And that’s my primary motivation. … I really very much want to jump back into local politics

Bernie and Jane Sanders College corruption? Funneled daughter $500,000

How did Jane Sanders funnel more than 500k to her daughter’s for-profit woodworking business during her tenure as President of Burlington College and get away with it?

What hasn’t been discussed in all the noise about Burlington College’s closure is how Jane Sanders (supported by the same Board of Trustees who approved the land sale) openly funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Burlington College’s operating funds to VT Woodworking School — a for-profit business started by her daughter Carina Driscoll in 2007.

corina-college

Despite scattered reporting on this story, Jane Sanders has never been asked to explain why Burlington College suddenly needed to start a woodworking program in 2009 – the very same year the VT Woodworking School expanded to its current site in Fairfax, VT taking on considerable expense of a new building and needing to find students to fill its cavernous 15,000 square-foot space. Nor has anyone asked if the College did what would normally be required in this process by creating a Request For Proposal (RFP) to solicit bids in order to guarantee that the process was fair and open to other entities competing for this business.

This appears not to be the case given that the College was also funding another program at the same time (as reported in the College’s tax returns) that directly benefited the children of Jonathan Leopold, a board member.

According to the College’s now defunct website, Carina Driscoll was listed as Director of the Woodworking Program at Burlington College on the Faculty and Staff Directory in 2016. It is unclear how the College was able to hire her on staff while she remained the owner of VT Woodworking — directly benefitting from the College’s funding of her for-profit business.  Read more

A key witness in the possible bank fraud case against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, was questioned by FBI agents just over a week ago, Fox News has learned.

The revelation—the first such confirmed development since January—likely indicates that the federal investigation into a soured $10-million real estate deal remains open.

Jane Sanders, the former president of the now-defunct Burlington College, was at the helm when the college decided to expand and obtain a tract of land from a Roman Catholic parish. She secured a $6.7 million loan from a bank and a $3.6 million loan from the parish from which she planned to purchase the property.

She resigned in 2011 amid accusations that she inflated the amount of money donors have pledged to the school and provided incorrect information to a bank to get the loan. Multiple individuals, who were listed as college donors, have since come forward denying the commitments.More at Fox News

Hurricanes – Lessons and how I survived and you can too

 

A year ago exactly, Hurricane Irma strafed the west coast of Florida. At first, we were given promises via the “European model” that the West Coast would be spared. Any moment it would veer east and sail off to landfalls other than Fort Myers. For a week prior to landfall, we had watched it move west, inch by inch. Those pretty little lines didn’t seem to want to hold fast with a determined path. Anyway it was a Cat one. Florida has had those. Lots… we can manage. Heck, there already had been two false alarms with the hurricanes meandering benignly out to sea

Then to our horror, not only did Irma move west, it was now a cat two, then three, then 4 – catastrophic. And the bull’s eye? Fort Myers.

Let me cut to the chase…Don’t let this happen to you! Clearly it was time to move out. It seemed that there was time. But there wasn’t. Not even close. Mandatory evacuations were implemented.

No motels in the Florida were available. I headed North. Filled the car with all the stuff I could with a certainty that I would never see my home again. Gas lines were everywhere by this time. Less than half a tank by now. It was time to call it quits. Florida on its main highways have overhead billboards giving updates on traffic usually. Now it was telling you to call Red Cross and find the nearest shelter. I had reached a good distance almost to the Georgia border. I would live and survive.

First don’t do what I did. Don’t wait. Don’t end up in a shelter if you have the finances and transportation. It’s not fun. I spent three days in a shelter on the florida border with other kind souls who were worried about us and took wonderful care. I was one of the lucky ones. This shelter had just opened up in a school for the overflow. The Lord took care of me big time. There were about 60 of us.

Why move out? Because there are not even close to enough shelters to care for the millions who are on the move.

Second. Gas. It’s a big problem. Going North everyone is filling up with cans and their cars. After the storm it’s even worse. Fuel trucks are allocated to the National Guard and first responders. Diesel will be trucked in first. The government wants the tractor trailers to haul in food and water and supplies. Most of the supermarkets had been emptied out. What was left probably had spoiled. Even after I got back home after the storm, it was close to at least ten days before gas was half plentiful. The 1970’s gas lines were back.

Download Gas Buddy app. Gas Buddy

It works best on the phone.

It will be a godsend. Good Samaritans will be kind enough to let you know as soon a station re-opens, which is an on and off proposition, and what the prices are and if all grades are available. It’s good to have anyway. Easy shopping. You don’t need the premium app.

Finally, let us not forget that the National Guard, and all those who take care of us have families and homes and they are just as worried as we were. Yet they willingly sacrifice for us. Don’t burden them if you don’t have to.

If I have not done enough to scare the you know what out of you, let me give you a couple of clips of the Fort Myers shelter. For those who had neither the money or transportation to escape. Be safe. Get out-of-the-way. Train, bus, car. You won’t regret it.

 

Here is an update on the worried folks who were trying to get in. 500 shelters for hundreds of thousands evacuees.

 

The epilogue. My House was spared.  A month later I decided to return North and am living happily ever after.
