    To A Nation Of Snowflakes, Christmas Has Become Another Trigger Word
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-05/nation-snowflakes-christmas-has-become-another-trigger-word
    Yet here’s the thing about this so-called War on Christmas that people don’t seem to get: while Christmas may be the “trigger” for purging Christmas from public places, government forums and speech – except when it profits Corporate America – it is part and parcel of the greater trend in recent years to whittle away at free speech and trample the First Amendment underfoot.

  2. This is a story that needs more CTH sunlight……………..

    https://nypost.com/2018/12/06/canadian-authorities-arrest-cfo-of-chinas-huawei-technologies/

    Huawei is a major data mining conglomerate with extensive operations in the US. A few years ago I did a property inspection of a large suburban Class A office building in Dallas. Ten stories, high dollar rents. 80% of the building was leased to Huawei. No workers, floor to ceiling computer stacks collecting data. From the casual observer you would think it was professional suites for normal business services. But no, It was a giant data mining operation.

    Huawei has connections to the Chinese military.

    Fortune covered this aspect of Huawei a few years ago. They are a giant spying network.

              P Trump employed a similar bold tactic when he bombed Syria during his dinner with Xi. He did it to strengthen his hand in the NK negotiations. Same thing here. P Trump sent his message loud and clear = “I am serious about China ripping off American technology and intellecutal property ” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Lot of tails to this arrest, which took place the same day Trump met with Xi in Argentina. I’m sure Xi got the heads up that he was about to pull the trigger, as Trump’s not one to blindside anybody. China is cheating on sanctions with Iran and North Korea too, plus Huawei is a shady company and likely a national security and economic threat. Lots of tails here.

      Trump’s driving some stakes into the ground. Xi may need Trump to do some of this to improve Xi’s negotiating position back home, as there are going to be a lot of crusty old greedheads there who don’t want to give an inch on anything.

          That combination was a dead giveaway because it is quite rare to see both the DOW and Gold go up at the same time, especially such a high jump in Gold. Some huge futures player was getting ready to dump the DOW. And they did the next day.

      • Exactly. Too easy for some to say this is deep state trying to submarine the Trump economic agenda. I read this arrest as just the opposite.

        It shows China that P Trump is willing to take it to the mat if China doesn’t stop it’s rippoff of American technology and intellectual property.

        I think P Trump welcomed this arrest and likely gave it the green light.

        No way this arrest happened without the WH being looped in.

      This is based on an old warrant for the Huawei CFO. She is accused of participating in breaking of the earlier sanctions on Iran by selling Hewlett-Packard equipment to Iran, which was absolutely forbidden.

      This is a nothing-burger that was long expected. The Huawei CFO was stupid for traveling to Canada, knowing there was a long-standing U.S. warrant for her arrest.

      Sometimes things really are as they appear. If there is any deep-state involved, it is China baiting Justin from Canada, to force Justin from Canada to take a side – rule of law, or China.

    • There was a lot of commentary about the G20 and how Trump looked stressed and wanting to get out of there. This arrest happened on the day of the meeting with Xi. It was just now reported that Bolton knew about the arrest beforehand but “wasn’t sure” that Trump knew. Taking it all together it appears Trump got word of it at the G20 itself and was taken off-guard. Hence the strange behavior at G20 and the chaotic reporting from the dinner where one day it looked like Xi was caving and the next day the opposite. I think Trump punted on the whole encounter and got out to regroup.

      It does looks like this arrest was a well-timed deep state setup to me. Also, Canada – our “frenemy” cooperating with the NY office. That’s not a good look either.

        Actually the house did spend effort on the border wall, just not on our behalf. They sponsored two competing bills to fund the border wall, so half could vote for one and half could vote for the other.

        Therefore, neither one comes close to passing, but when they run for re-election they can all point to their voting records to show that they voted for the border wall.

      It’s sad to think that David Limbaugh, who many feel is a major name among conservatives, doesn’t understand that the GOP in Washington does not want to support the president’s agenda. Some will lay blame on the failures on the leadership, but it’s more than that. The VAST majority of GOP in the House and Senate are GOPe, not conservative. They purposely lose the House so they would not have to support President Trump. It’s amazing to think that people don’t understand this when it’s so obvious. And it’s even more amazing that someone of the stature of David Limbaugh doesn’t get it. The constant whining about why the Republicans did this or didn’t do that is ridiculous and if people really paid attention they wouldn’t be whining or even surprised, they’d be outraged and seriously working on replacing them in the primaries of every election cycle.

      Is Mueller the real acting Attorney General as it seems he is stepping outside of his authority by referring anything outside his scope of investigation to anywhere but the AG.

    If we’re going to deal with the Swamp and Deep State, we are going to have to remove some of the tools they use to protect themselves:

    1. The Patriot Act and comprehensive NSA surveillance must be ended. We cannot be spied upon constantly, because that spying will be illegitimately and illegally used by the Swamp and Deep State. No more data collection and storage.

    2. FISA must be ended, including the administrative functions of it where a warrant isn’t even required. But if a search warrant is required, the requesters must go to a normal court and seek such, following normal protocol.

    3. Five Eyes must be ended. This program has merely been a way to circumvent black letter law in violating our civil rights.

    4. This “lying to the FBI” law has to be ended. It is just a tool of illegitimate prosecution. If somebody lies, you can bring it up in court when you try them for real crimes.

    I can think of more, but these are a start. The Swamp and Deep State will destroy this country with these travesties, unless we stop them by removing their tools.

      Isn’t the whole purpose of the FISA courts, to give the appearance of ‘propriety’, and Judicial oversight, to the process of spying on people, using the NSA database and the two-hop rule?

      As for the whole lieing to the FBI, best and probably easiest way to attack, would be to change the PROCESS, of 302’s.
      The rationalisation FOR the 302’s is weak. “The FBI interviews so many people, they can’t record all interviews.”

      Given that other Federal agencies, as well as local Police depts record interviews with suspects, this is a rediculous argument.

      The 302, with agents working in pairs, so one can testify as a witness, and juries tending to believe them cause efrem zimbalist, has been an integral part of FBI proceedure, from early on.

I think this arrest makes China talks much more complicated… this is not “leverage” by Team Trump. Tariffs are the leverage right now. And those were having positive effect for the U.S. position.

          This Huawei thing could have been dealt with IN TIME. It did not have to happen RIGHT NOW. In fact, it could have been a poker chip: “So… we know so-and-so is violating Iran sanctions. What are we going to do about that, now? Hm?”

            Excerpts:

            “U.S. authorities have suspected Huawei’s alleged involvement in Iranian sanctions violations since at least 2016, when the U.S. investigated ZTE Corp., Huawei’s smaller Chinese rival, over similar allegations. The Commerce Department released internal ZTE documents that showed the company studied how a rival, identified only as “F7,” had conducted similar business. ”

            “Some of America’s closest allies, including most of the countries in the “Five Eyes” intelligence-sharing pact among English-speaking countries, have followed the nation’s lead. Australia in August banned Huawei from its 5G networks, while New Zealand last week blocked one of its major wireless carriers from using Huawei. In Britain, BT Group PLC said Wednesday that it was removing Huawei equipment from its network, two days after a British intelligence chief questioned whether the country should be using the Chinese gear.”

            And apparently, they have been under investigation since at least April:

              So, Congress backs down in order to get defense spending through. Then six months later the Federal Government says “actually, we need to arrest this woman RIGHT NOW”.

              If critical relations and negotiations were fragile six months ago, then they are still now. Six months doesn’t change that. And now they are more so fragile. IMO.

If the state police don’t like what you are posting, you would not be allowed to purchase a firearm.

    I’m having indigestion learning that John Bolton knew the Justice Department was in the process of arresting Huawei’s CFO (the daughter of its founder) in Canada on Saturday. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-06/bolton-was-aware-huawei-cfo-was-arrested-while-having-dinner-xi. This arrest and extradition is widely regarded as having thrown a wrench into the 90 trade negotiation recess announced to general applause at that dinner, triggering the massive sell-off in markets yesterday and today. Similar stomach problems arise from knowing the arrest came out of the Eastern District of New York.

    The optics suggest a stunning escalation by President Trump in aggressiveness in negotiations with China over IP theft: talk about wearing a mask! Xi’s got nothing on the Donald! Alternatively, they suggest a stunning act of insubordination by Bolton and DOJ, a stunning escalation by the Deep State and their globalist allies seeking to transfer power to globalists, and willing to manufacture crises (not to be wasted!) in order to get their way.

    I’ve never trusted Bolton, as crusty a neocon as ever walked the Bush 2 Adminstration halls of power, and have worried about him ever since President Trump brought him on. In fact, part of me, the part susceptible to the notion that the President and military intelligence were running stings right and left against the multifaceted globalist entity, while pretending to be a bird with a broken wing, imagined that Bolton was brought in to spring traps on the neocon wing of corrupt globalists.

    Well, if so, this is one helluva trap. Waiting to gauge President Trump’s reaction, from which we’ll no doubt learn something. Also, Sundance’s take. D5 came and went. Now it’s D6, and . . . . what the H is going on??

      Some new and innovative techniques used in the 2018 election fraud playbook:

      1) rank voting (Maine)
      2) special emergency voting centers (Arizona)
      3) ballot harvesting (California)
      4) honorable mention: boxes of ballots appearing in rental car trunks (Broward County Florida)

      Please President Trump – fire those responsible for for this failure and charge a highly capable person with investigating this mess before the 2020 election.

        This is the problem – the federal government has no say, no authority, over how States decide to manage their elections. It’s solely a states-rights issue.

        Not sure what the solution is because I have a hunch that the reason the Dems are pushing these envelopes of corruption in vote counting is that they can create enough national outcry that it would create a national groundswell to revamp the entire election system with the real goal of eliminating the Electoral College.

        This may be where the solution is through avid grass roots involvement to have each State take responsibility to clean up their individual processes; and even that will require laser-sharp focus with organizers among the different states for a coordinated counter to what the Dems are slow-walking into their hands.

        • Perhaps it’s time that they do. These are FEDERAL elections, effecting all of us. THis Shhit has got to stop. We need federal minimum guidelines for federal elections.

            This last election was not national, it was state’s electing their individual state representation within the federal government; which got out of whack from what was the original design when the 17th Amendment was adopted which gutted State’s rights to have the State pick their two Senate representatives.

            Opening anything up for federal guidelines opens up the gate for gutting the Electoral College which has been the goal for many years.

              (hit reply too soon)

              If the 17th Amendment could be repealed then that puts direct election of Senators back into the hands of the individual State legislators, not the people, which means that the people would be more focused on who it is they elect for their State legislatures,

              that would bring balance back to the entire electoral system and remove antics like vote harvesting.

                . . . and that would also negate the whole national outcry for controlling money in elections, because with the Senate, at least, those seats would be chosen by the individual State legislatures, and the out-of-control campaign spending would dwindle because the focus goes back to where it should always have been, the State’s needs.
