    German Soccer Team Kneels in Solidarity With N.F.L. Players’ Protests

    BERLIN — Hertha Berlin nodded to social struggles in the United States by kneeling before its Bundesliga home game on Saturday.

    “We wanted to make a stand against racism,” Hertha’s captain, Per Skjelbred, said after the team’s 2-0 defeat.

    ‘Broad City’ Stars Discuss Decision to Bleep Out Trump’s Name in Season 4

    “We just got to a point where in real life we’re talking about the current administration, we’re talking about Trump and it sounds so gross every day saying it so many times and we just didn’t want to share airtime,” Glazer told reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. “He’s got enough, and I also don’t even want to hear the word. It’s a different kind of joke.”

    Steve Bannon is jet setting meeting all kinds of people i find questionable… I find Steve Bannon Questionable.

    “According to unnamed sources cited by the Financial Times last month, Wang and Bannon met for about 90 minutes at the party’s headquarters in Zhongnanhai. The report said Wang asked Bannon, who left US President Donald Trump’s administration in mid-August, about economic nationalism and populist movements – the subject of Bannon’s speech at an investor conference in Hong Kong in mid-September.”

    “As well as visiting China, Bannon last month travelled to the United Arab Emirates, where he met the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, The New York Times reported.”


    Then there is this that is shocking – ⬇️⬇️⬇️
    “Hong Kong played a role in White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s ability to manoeuvre Donald Trump to victory. To find out how, read Joshua Green’s riveting book about the odd confluence of circumstances that brought together two of the world’s most odious people. Odd, however, is putting it mildly when it comes to the business for which Bannon headed to the city in 2005 – video games and the selling of digital loot. Bannon joined a Hong Kong company that, Green writes: “sought to take gold farming to industrial scale by building out a supply chain of low-wage Chinese workers who played World of Warcraft” to secure virtual goods to sell to gamers in the West.The experience apparently gave Bannon the conceptual framework to build far-right website Breitbart News and the sense to use trolls and others to help Trump win. ”


    AND MORE from another story:
    “The story of Bannon’s six years with IGE and its successor companies has remained largely unexplored, even as Bannon has become one of the most influential political figures in the White House.

    His affiliation with the company cuts against his current image as a crusading champion of blue-collar manufacturing jobs and as a fierce opponent of globalism. It also shows Bannon’s willingness to be part of a company that operated in what one legal expert called “a classic grey market”.

    “Bannon helped persuade private equity firms, including his former employer Goldman Sachs, to invest tens of millions of dollars in the venture, which relied partly on labour from low-wage video game players in China to earn the credits that IGE then sold to gamers around the world.
    In 2007, however, IGE faced pressure from gaming companies, a class action lawsuit, an investigation by authorities in the US state of Florida and financial stress. Bannon soon steered IGE away from its virtual goods business.”

    “It is not clear how much Bannon knew about these tactics, which were in place before he started and continued afterwards. He did not respond to requests for comment or an e-mail with detailed questions.”

        I was just about to say the same. We wouldn’t accept that kind of reporting about Trump, and should have the same standards for Bannon.
        I really don’t get the anger against him here. He is not the voice of every article on Breitbart, and IMHO his grasp of the grassroot anger helped PDJT get elected.
        I still think he is helping PDJT. Otherwise why is he on the head of the attack list for the MSM?

            I feel the same about “un-named sources”.. believe me i do.. but in this case as I just commented , it’s only referring to seeing these two meet up. which according to photographs it did happen.


        • mimbler says:

          When the lead of the story is “according to unnamed sources”, how can you validate it or call it false?

          According to unnamed sources, we should be impeaching PDJT immediately,


          • Trumppin says:

            1. because i read the story, 2. I read what the un-named sources had to say and 3. then followed it up by seeing the picture of them together as the source said.


      • Trumppin says:

        also, that was only one of the articles i sighted and it only pertained to the report that he met with Wengui….. now we can assume this is fact since bannon is photographed with him and Wengui tweeted it.

          If Amazon had a delivery schedule like the government does, it wouldn’t have lasted a week. How long can it take a person to black out security concerns on 30 pages? Two hours tops?

          Also, the video below is Judicial Watch telling a few Congressmen (the only ones interested, apparently) about Awan. It’s long. 1:44:44, but once you get past the “welcome & who is who” it is very interesting.

          The leaders of Congress aren’t even notifying members of problems and there is no oversight. No business in this country could last any time at all run like this. Our tax money is just being tossed around haphazardly. Most of us know much more about what is going on in the government than those in Congress.

    Scalias All the Way Down
    While the press goes wild over tweets, Trump is remaking the federal judiciary.

    The media remains so caught up with the president’s tweets that it has missed Mr. Trump’s project to transform the rest of the federal judiciary. The president is stocking the courts with a class of brilliant young textualists bearing little relation to even their Reagan or Bush predecessors. Mr. Trump’s nastygrams to Bob Corker will be a distant memory next week. Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett’s influence on the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals could still be going strong 40 years from now.

    Mr. Trump has now nominated nearly 60 judges, filling more vacancies than Barack Obama did in his entire first year. There are another 160 court openings, allowing Mr. Trump to flip or further consolidate conservative majorities on the circuit courts that have the final say on 99% of federal legal disputes.

    .Mr. Trump makes the decisions, though he’s taking cues from Mr. McGahn and his team. The Bushies preferred a committee approach: Dozens of advisers hunted for the least controversial nominee with the smallest paper trail. That helped get picks past a Senate filibuster, but it led to bland choices, or to ideological surprises like retired Justice David Souter.

    Mr. McGahn has long been obsessed with constitutional law and the risks of an all-powerful administrative state. His crew isn’t subjecting candidates to 1980s-style litmus tests on issues like abortion. Instead the focus is on promoting jurists who understand the unique challenges of our big-government times. Can the prospective nominee read a statute? Does he or she defer to the government’s view of its own authority? The result has been a band of young rock stars and Scalia-style textualists like Ms. Barrett, Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett and Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Justice David Stras.

    Any of you guys know much about EMP? I stumbled across a 10/12/2017 Homeland Security Committee congressional hearing with the U.S. EMP committee. This is a long tape and many parts are interesting, with periods of silence during their breaks. I would direct your attention to 1:54:18 – 2:00:00 where Mr. Higgins from LA interviews Dr. Pry, who testifies that NK already has 2 satellites passing over North America and they may POSSIBLY have a small EMP attached. These satellites approach U.S. from the south polar region and we are not defended against this approach. They discuss the possibility of shooting down these satellites and others have even mentioned possibility of nuclear first strike against NK.
    This committee has been warning about this throughout the Obama Presidency. Anyone else been keeping up with this?

      Every time I post ANYTHING about EMP I get some guy who replies to me and says this is all hogwash, no one knows anything, it is all supposition based on a nuclear test we did in the early 60s, blah blah blah.

      I got kind of tired of that, so I just shut up. But I read about it and I have seen Dr. Pry interviewed on TV. All I can tell you is that I remain concerned about it.

      Also, I read something a few months ago where PDJT had ordered a review of our electrical grids and an assessment of whether they are sufficiently hardened to withstand an EMP. I was glad to hear that, but hoping it wasn’t too late. I have also read that Russia and China hardened their grids years ago, but there was no details provided as to just what exactly that had entailed.

      Personally, I think the subject is terrifying.

        So was the 1859 Carrington event?
        So are testing to demonstrate EMP Immunity per MIL-STD-461 & MIL-STD-188-125?
        So is White Sands Nuclear Effects Directorate testing?
        So are satellies designed and tested to withstand certain EMP levels?
        So was the Starfish Prime nuclear EMP test?
        So was the Trestle EMP apparatus at Sandia?
        . . . and much, much, much more EMP simulation and testing.

        The only thing that’s hogwash is “some guys” hogwash statement.
        EMP needs to be dealt with.

          Jim, if you enjoy reading fiction you might be interested in a novel called One Second After by William R. Forstchen. While it is fictional, he did quite a bit of research on EMPs before he wrote it and the book has value, in my opinion, because it forces the reader to really consider what the effects of killing our grid would entail. It is eye opening.

          The horrible Ted Koppel wrote a non fiction book a year or so ago called Lights Out about what would happen if our electric grid were taken out by cyber attack. It sounded interesting, but I couldn’t make myself by a Ted Koppel book.

          During his book tour, I watched an interview of him where he talked about interviewing then Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about our plans for surviving such an attack, and Jeh Johnson waved his hand around the room and said, “I’m sure somewhere in these manuals we have some kind of plans for this.” Oddly, that did not reassure me in the slightest, nor did it reassure Ted Koppel.

          As you said, thank God for PDJT.

    Chelsea Clinton runs from questions about handing back Harvey Weinstein’s tainted $250,000 donations – and her father deploys security to keep the Press away


    Chelsea Clinton fled to her car to avoid answering questions from a DailyMail.com reporter about if the Clinton Foundation will return Weinstein’s donations

    Clinton, a board member of the Foundation, ran while she was attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event in Northeastern University in Boston

    The night prior, Clinton Foundation press officials blocked a DailyMail.com reporter from approaching Bill Clinton to ask him questions at a public event

    On Friday night, Bill Clinton gave the opening address for the CGI University conference, and led a conversation with a panel of activists

    Bill Clinton did not take questions during the event, and press access was tightly restricted
    Weinstein has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the foundation, according to its records

    The CGI University conference brought together thousands of student activist to discuss issues ranging from sexual assault to sustainable energy, and included keynotes and panel discussions with Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and Madeleine Albright. The conference is a project of the Clinton Foundation, and a spin-off of the foundation’s annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting which brings together entrepreneurs, philanthropists, executives, and progressive activists. The Clinton Foundation said after the 2016 election that it was ending CGI, but would continue to sponsor CGI University.

    Anyone who is familiar with the Real Apple (Apple is for wimps) know that Steve Wozniak is the real brains behind Apple. Jobs did marketing. Woz did the actual tech engineering.

    Woz has started an online university for anyone who desires to break into IT, or just learn IT for themselves.
    Knowing Woz, this may be one of the most worthwhile and satisfying pursuits in IT currently available, suitable for anyone of any age.

    “”People often are afraid to choose a technology-based career because they think they can’t do it. I know they can, and I want to show them how,” Wozniak said in a statement.” (ed. anyone can, is easy)

    Woz U “is part of the Southern Careers Institute, a private, for-profit school with seven locations across Texas.”
    “Woz U says it plans to open physical campuses in more than 30 cities across the United States and around the world.” (ed. and will be affordable or free)

    “In 2000, Wozniak was added in the Inventors Hall of Fame for his work in the personal computing world. His invention listing there include, “Microcomputer for use with video display personal computer, patent Number (s) 4,136,359.””

    Funny how this only came about during MAGA and not during the Obama Reign of Terror.
    Ladies and gentlemen, the future has arrived with MAGA. The Real America is back with a vengeance.
