      Notice Wemple says “Playboy” correspondent and not “Playboy and CNN” correspondent?

      If Karem has a case, it will likely be that banning him prevents Plaboy (as an outlet) from exercising their 1st Amendment rights. Something like that.

      Acosta won his appeal on 5th Amendment grounds, I think. That is over, as the White House now has a full set of rules on how reporters must behave. So there is no due process argument any longer.

      That means you’re down to 1st Amendment, I think. Not of the individual, but of the organization (Playboy, CNN). So if Karem is part of CNN, he has no case. Since there are other CNN members who are still covering the White House and thus Karem is not needed for CNN to be able to do it’s job under the 1st Amendment.

      So I guess we’re left with asking if Playboy has a right to cover the White House? And/or if they have someone else who can do the job besides Karem.

      What’s great is that, like the Acosta case, the White House keeps pushing the press further and further into the corner with these matters. Karem is irrelevant, but this helps prevent the next Karem and makes it easier to punish the next Karem, as well.

        I’m not sure that anyone has a right to a White House press pass (as opposed to “covering the White House”). Common sense says that the place can only accomadate just so many people, and so I think those relatively few slots are probably quite competatively sought. IMO the press passes are a privilege, and I’d like to see some others yanked for inappropriate behavior as well.

      The UNCONVICTED status of a clan of intell breaching perpetrators is an open sore on our body politic.
      Our country had a seven year + window that siphoned high security data via multiple known embeds, House Dems, Feinstein, Clinton.

      External actors had & probably have real time info of POTUS & Obama administration internal deliberations on foreign policy, not necessarily military ops, but through State Dept, NSC, DoD civilian employees.

      What nation refuses to admit or punish treasonous actions and survives as an authentic self representative country?

      The Establishment’s hollow souls are exposed to the entire world.

        I agree, completely. The rule of law, the process, and the “might of right” all await as treatments to heal the sore, but the will of the primary/attending physician is lacking in order to spare the offending government institutions and perpetrators from embarrassment and prosecution.

        It was in that time frame that Senator Feinstein would hire her chauffeur that turned out to be a Chinese agent.

    Iraq Closes Airspace Even To US Coalition Flights After Suspected Israeli Raid
    17 Aug 2019

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-17/iraq-closes-airspace-even-us-coalition-anti-isil-flights-after-suspected-israeli

    In what is a severely under reported but perhaps the most alarming development out of the Middle East this week, Iraq’s government has said it’s ready to down any aircraft violating its airspace amid a blanket ban on ‘unauthorized’ flights not specifically approved by the prime minister’s office. Military Times reported the day after Iraq closed its airspace on Thursday:

    U.S. military officials in Iraq will now seek out Iraqi approval before launching any air operations, a move made a day after that nation’s prime minister announced a ban of unauthorized flights, including those involving coalition forces fighting ISIS.

    Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi called for an end to all “unauthorized flights” including US drones, spy planes, jets, or helicopters on Thursday. The directive demanded that all aerial vehicles comply with Iraqi law and operations must be under Iraqi government authorization.

    he US Coalition on Friday issued a statement saying that it is ready to comply with the order.

    The drastic Baghdad decision came after on Monday a massive blast ripped through a neighborhood in the city, which Iraqi officials believe was the result of an Israeli strike on a pro-Iranian militia ammunition depot.

    The resulting fire had raged throughout the day not far from the ‘Green Zone’ and sent mortars and exploding munitions across the city, resulting in the death of at least one civilian and wounding of nearly 40 others, many of them children. The weapons base reportedly belonged to the pro-Iran Kataib Sayyid Al-Shuhada militia, and an estimated $110 million worth of munitions were wiped out.

    On Scaramucci and his nonsense proclamations about POTUS:

    As most know, Scaramucci has been trying to get back into the administration for some time since his 11-day flameout in 2017. He even wrote a flattering book about POTUS in October 2018 in hopes of sucking up in this manner:

    However, it’s also important to recall that Scaramucci was not a POTUS supporter in the primaries. He backed Scott Walker and Jeb Bush, and he took shots at POTUS during that time:

    https://www.businessinsider.com/scaramucci-comments-about-trump-2015-hack-2017-7

    Simply put, Scaramucci is about himself and is a mercenary who will go whatever way he thinks is best for him. No loyalty, just a clown.

    Now that POTUS has made it clear Scaramucci is not coming back into the administration, the Mooch has decided to throw a tantrum and try to hurt POTUS for 2020. Mooch recently held his SALT conference, which this year apparently hosted Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, Jeff Sessions and General Kelly. Seems like he’s made his choice as regards 2020.

    Scaramucci is now saying POTUS will drop out by March 2020 and that Bill Kristol is helping him to do this. Mooch as ZERO pull and nothing will come of any of this. So don’t be scared or concerned. He’s just trying to damage POTUS, but he has no ability to do anything. Just as Kristol wanted a primary challenger to POTUS but has since given up that hope.

    The Mooch is a joke. Treat him as such.

    Treasury International Capital
    TIC long-term purchases report:
    U.S. Department of the Treasury

    The difference in value between foreign long term securities purchased by U.S. citizens and U.S. securities purchased by foreigners.

    Example if U.S. citizens purchase $90B in foreign stocks and bonds, while foreigners purchase $80B in U.S. stocks and bond the TIC would be +$10B.

    This information, August report is 45 days after month end,, which means Junes numbers. There are definitive weakness’s to this report, but it is one of the better ones available for tracking purposes.

    After an exchange with BlackKnightRides I figured I was posting this completely wrong. Thank you BlackKnightRides. Admittedly that presupposes interest that may not be there on my part.

    August Report: (June’s Numbers)
    Projected +$22B

    House Democrats Demand Gun Confiscation NOW!

    The House Communists, of both D and R stripe, are returning to session early to finalize laws permitting firearm confiscations of anyone the Communist Party declares is an Extreme Risk. Does that mean if someone posts on the internet:

    “House Members should be (fill in the blank)”, or,

    “Those who participated in the coup against president Trump should be prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law, up to and including the death penalty”, or

    “The Declaration of Independence charges and commands The People to throw over any government that seeks to reduce them through tyranny, and that’s what should happen to most of Congress, by means of the Second Amendment”, or

    “The real murderers are those who abort babies and those who promote that murder”, or

    “The first person I want in my sights is the President”…..

    …..is an extreme risk? Will be violently attacked by Federal SWAT teams; professionally trained killers, taught to believe that anyone who holds the Declaration and Constitution to mean what they say, as a “threat” to America who can and should be shot and killed if they refuse to bow down to the god of government?

    In the final analysis ‘Red Flag Laws’ are really “Confiscate or Kill” orders, not laws. Happened in Maryland to one poor slob already. Won’t happen again, right? Wrong. Whiskey Rebellion. Hayes Rebellion. Bonus Army. Kent State. Ruby Ridge (RIP Vicky Weaver, killed by 200 yard head shot fired by West Point grad Lon Horiuchi…RIP son Sammy Weaver, 14, shot in the back by black clad terrorist wielding MP5). Waco. Children gassed and burned. Evidence bulldozed while still burning.

    >> “….the first person I want in my sights is LBJ…” So said one Mr.Watts on August 27, 1966 about what he’d do if drafted into the U.S. Army. He was convicted under of 1917 law of threatening the President. SCOTUS overturned the conviction, saying:
    https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-supreme-court/394/705.html

    “Petitioner’s remark during political debate at small public gathering that if inducted into Army (which he vowed would never occur) and made to carry a rifle “the first man I want to get in my sights is L. B. J.,” held to be crude political hyperbole which in light of its context and conditional nature did not constitute a knowing and willful threat against the President within the coverage of 18 U.S.C. 871 (a).”

    ” PER CURIAM (unanimous agreement)

    “After a jury trial in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, petitioner was convicted of violating a 1917 statute which prohibits any person from “knowingly and willfully . . . [making] any threat to take the life of or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States . . . .” * The incident [394 U.S. 705, 706] which led to petitioner’s arrest occurred on August 27, 1966, during a public rally on the Washington Monument grounds. The crowd present broke up into small discussion groups and petitioner joined a gathering scheduled to discuss police brutality.

    “Most of those in the group were quite young, either in their teens or early twenties. Petitioner, who himself was 18 years old, entered into the discussion after one member of the group suggested that the young people present should get more education before expressing their views. According to an investigator for the Army Counter Intelligence Corps who was present, petitioner responded: “They always holler at us to get an education. And now I have already received my draft classification as 1-A and I have got to report for my physical this Monday coming. I am not going. If they ever make me carry a rifle the first man I want to get in my sights is L. B. J.”…. “They are not going to make me kill my black brothers.”

    “On the basis of this statement, the jury found that petitioner had committed a felony by knowingly and willfully threatening the President. The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed by a two-to-one vote. 131 U.S. App. D.C. 125, 402 F.2d 676 (1968). We reverse.”

      Sessions was FBI director during the controversial 1992 confrontation at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, at which the unarmed Vicky Weaver was shot dead by an FBI sniper. This incident provoked heavy criticism of the Bureau, as did the deadly assault on the Branch Dravidian church at Waco which lasted from February 28 to April 19, 1993. These incidents were also related to the discovery of severe procedural shortcomings at the FBI’s crime laboratory.

          FTA

          After an Idaho jury found Weaver not guilty on almost all charges, federal judge Edward Lodge slammed the Justice Department and FBI for concealing evidence and showing “a callous disregard for the rights of the defendants and the interests of justice.” A Justice Department internal investigation compiled a 542-page report detailing federal misconduct and coverups in the case and suggested criminal charges against FBI officials involved in Ruby Ridge.

          Barr told the New York Times in 1993 that he was not directly involved in the Ruby Ridge operation. Two years later, the Washington Post revealed that “top officials of the Bush Justice Department had at least 20 [phone] contacts concerning Ruby Ridge in the 24 hours before Vicki Weaver was shot,” including two calls involving Barr.

          The Justice Department paid $3 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit from the Weaver family. But when Boundary County, Idaho filed criminal charges against Horiuchi, Barr sprang to action seeking immunity for FBI snipers. He spearheaded efforts to sway the court to dismiss all charges because holding a sniper liable would “severely undermine, if not cripple, the ability of future attorneys general to rely on such specialized units in moments of crisis such as hostage taking and terrorist acts.”

          Barr spent two weeks organizing former Attorneys General and others to support “an FBI sniper in defending against criminal charges in connection with the Ruby Ridge incident.” Barr also “assisted in framing legal arguments advanced… in the district court and the subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit,” he told the committee.

          Witnesses stated under oath that Koresh more than once invited BATF to view his firearms inventory. Every invitation was declined. When BATF rented a house across the street, Koresh sent them pizza and an invitation to inspect his inventory.

          BATF has authority to inspect a dealer’s “records, documents,firearms and ammunition”. once in a 12 month period. That’s ALL BATF is authorized to do. They may look at the bound book (records), documents (receipts from wholesalers, etc) and compare the acquisitions and dispositions (guns bought and guns sold) in the bound book with the firearms in the inventory (on shelves, in storage, in safes).

          BATF officers are trained to go in like gang busters and “take charge”. Since many licensees don’t know jack about the laws they’re supposed to operate under and obey, they immediately start answering every and any question the overzealous jackboot asks.

          The correct response to all questions outside of 48.123 is:

          “My copy of 478.123 says you can inspect the records and inventory. Let me see your copy that says you can ask me questions about internet sales and gun shows.”

          When they balk or say they’re only asking for their own information the correct response is:

          “Your own information? You’re compiling information on a federal licensee for your own private file on that licensee? What’s your supervisor’s name and phone number. I’m going to ask them to send someone here who knows what the law says they can and can’t do.”

          27 CFR § 478.23. Right of Entry and Examination.

          (b) Any ATF officer, without having reasonable cause to believe a violation of the Act has occurred or that evidence of the violation may be found and without demonstrating such cause before a Federal magistrate or obtaining from the magistrate a warrant authorizing entry, may enter during business hours the premises, including places of storage, of any licensed manufacturer, licensed importer, or licensed dealer for the purpose of inspecting or examining the records, documents, ammunition and firearms referred to in paragraph (a) of this section:
          (1) In the course of a reasonable inquiry during the course of a criminal investigation of a person or persons other than the licensee,
          (2) For insuring compliance with the recordkeeping requirements of this part:
          (i) Not more than once during any 12-month period, or
          (ii) At any time with respect to records relating to a firearm involved in a criminal investigation that is traced to the licensee, or
          (3) When such inspection or examination may be required for determining the disposition of one or more particular firearms in the course of a bona fide criminal investigation.

          (c) Any ATF officer, without having reasonable cause to believe a violation of the Act has occurred or that evidence of the violation may be found and without demonstrating such cause before a Federal magistrate or obtaining from the magistrate a warrant authorizing entry, may enter during hours of operation the premises, including places of storage, of any licensed collector for the purpose of inspecting or examining the records, documents, firearms, and ammunition referred to in paragraph (a) of this section (1) for ensuring compliance with the record keeping requirements of this part not more than once during any 12-month period or (2) when such inspection or examination may be required for determining the disposition of one or more particular firearms in the course of a bona fide criminal investigation. At the election of the licensed collector, the annual inspection permitted by this paragraph shall be performed at the ATF office responsible for conducting such inspection in closest proximity to the collectors premises.

          (d) The inspections and examinations provided by this section do not authorize an ATF officer to seize any records or documents other than those records or documents constituting material evidence of a violation of law. If an ATF officer seizes such records or documents, copies shall be provided the licensee within a reasonable time.

    Taxed enough already.

    Negative on any new laws, your not enforcing whats on the books.

    The most important thing about being a United States Citizen is that you want to be left alone, in Liberty.

    Epstein allegedly on a gurney going into a hospital emergency room on right, recent picture of left profile of Epstein (surprisingly hard to find a picture taken on his left side):

    Compare the ears and nose. Person (or head photoshopped into picture) is not Epstein. Other comparisons suggest that it is actually an image of Anthony Bourdain’s head.

    “As Lunch Money Debt Raises Nationwide, 77 Atlanta
    Schools provide free meals” (Newsweek)

    Sorry that I’m lousy at linking.

    Type in the above for the story.

    What we are seeing, here, friends, is probable Title
    1 fraud. Every single one of the City of Atlanta public
    schools will provide free meals to all students, regardless
    of income.

    Free meals=Title 1= $600 additional more per pupil.
    The 600 dollars is an old figure. Don’t know how much
    the figure currently is.

    The other significance? ALL Atlanta public schools will
    now be considered Title 1. So they will get computers,
    instructional aid materials, and on and on.

    Title 1 is supposedly only for the disadvantaged. Some
    Atlanta Public schools have much lower free meals figures
    then suburban schools. I saw one school listed with a 6.5%
    free meal figure. Out in the burbs, few schools have seen
    numbers that low since the late 90s.

    Looked up last year’s figures, just for laughs. Seventy four
    percent of Atlanta Public schools qualified for free meals last
    year. So, Atlanta will be receiving at least 26% more federal
    funding due to created poverty for their schools.

    Oh, yeah. The city of Atlanta basically has NO middle class
    among it’s homeowners. Unless you are in the hood, home
    prices are now about 4-500 K on the low end.

    Anyone else want to bring this one to Trump and some other’s
    attention. Sonny Perdue is over agriculture. That’s who handles
    the Title 1 $$$.
