          In my view, the entire Democratic Party is destroying itself right before our eyes. Yes, just like the “Whigs,” you can indeed be a Party which elected several Presidents, only to dissolve into irrelevance when the winds shift and you don’t.

    Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions

    “Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today.

    None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.

    What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.

    More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science.

    While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.”

    This President does not want America to be involved in foreign wars, nor start another foreign war. Nevertheless, he has ordered increased sanctions on Iran. And … he is known to hit back when his adversaries try to attack him.

    Is it a war if your opponent is not given the opportunity to respond? I don’t visit sites where speculation is probably roiling, and sites such as CTH, OAN, AmericanThinker, BadBlue, WhatFinger, etc. are not distributing much in the way of speculation.

    It seems that most countries still don’t understand that the term “Stealth Bomber” actually means something akin to “Step On You Like A Bug.” And now the U.S. military has a bunch of Stealth Attack jets (F-35). There are rumors that Israel has already practiced over-flying Tehran in their F-35s, and they were not detected. Well, duh … that’s what we mean by the term “Stealth.”

    I simply wonder which Iranian units would need to be vaporized for that nation to no longer be able to threaten ships, oil installations and cities of neighboring countries. And is the U.S. military Re-Built enough under VSGPDJT to do what is required in, say, ONE HOUR of Strikes.

    Recall that when the primitive F-117s struck Baghdad for the very first time, about 20 of them attacked from multiple directions, and their bombs all hit within a TENTH OF A SECOND. Some of those bombs flew precisely through windows and/or down into ventilation shafts.

    So, let me get this right. The highest echelon officials of the DOJ, FBI, CIA, State Department, and members of Congress with the help of embassy staff overseas and foreign intelligence services from Italy, Australia and MI6 in the UK attempted a coup against the President of the United States and members of his family by framing him for a crime that not only he didn’t commit but a crime that never even happened. The response for the most egregious sedition in the 250 year history of the United States initiated by the Republican Attorney General appointed by President Trump is to have a federal prosecutor based in Connecticut assemble a “review team” of several lawyers, paralegals and secretarial support staff in Washington DC to assess what happened!

          Well,…..NO! It was a Obstruction and Perjury trap, from day one.
          However, your statement is, I believe, false. The Mueller team inherited a counter-intel investigation, which in 10 months had found NOTHING.
          That,was an investigation of possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.
          However, we are told Comey leaked his memos, IN ORDER TO trigger a Special Council investigation, for Obstruction of Justice (by the POTUS, for firing Comey),…THAT would be a CRIMINAL investigation.

          The expanding scope memos, from what we can infer, were NOT intel related, so much ad CRIMINAL related.

          Hence, one of the many fundamental problems with Mueller investigation;

          “Its a Criminal investigation,..
          Its a Counter-Intel investigation,..
          its 2,…2,…2 investigations in ONE!

          Thing is, ya can’t DO that! In counter-intel and anti-terror investigations, and ONLY in those two, “WE” have decided (wrongly) that because the crime is so horrific, LE can ignore the rights of U.S. citisens using NSA database.

          Mind you, can’t use it to investigate a Hannibal Lecter, or a Jeffery Epstien, cause as heinous as psychpathic mass murder and serial pedophilia are, THOSE defendants have legal rights, that must be preserved.
          Again, ONLY Counter-intel, or counter-terror, for FISA against American citisens.

          So, by morphing or merging a counter-intel investigation WITH a criminal investigation, they (amongst other ways) threw out the alleged safeguards, and abused everyones legal rights with impunity.
          They blew through the stop sign, and didn’t even slow down!
          So, thanks for the friendly reminder, but if you still maintain it was a counter intel investigation, and NOT a criminal one, please provide reference. And, explain to Manafort why he is in jail.

        Sooner or later Iran must be held accountable. So far, the President and his cabinet have upped sanctions.

      I’ve read a bit about this and not on so-called right wing blogs. No telling what this is all about. As for IC ‘spying on the President’ may not be the case. As for motivation for the whistleblowing, it may be overblown. There may be no there there.

      If there was, I think the IC would have come out pens blazing. This may end up to be a big fat nothingburger.

      I think IG Horowitz said it best at the subcommittee meeting today. You must handle the whistleblowing on two levels; take them seriously, but verify. Sometimes that takes five minutes.

      • Attorney General Barr has already publicly stated that spying did occur – and Adm. Rogers (as the responsible department chief) had access to objectively-factual computer audit records which prove it. So, that much is no longer subject to question. The “whistleblowing” also has been verified.

        But remember – Horowitz is an investigator, not a prosecutor. He has in previous reports called-out people for “making prosecutorial decisions,” and, as he ably quipped yesterday, he’s not about to do the same thing himself. His team’s role is to gather factual, objective evidence and to report it. Anywhere such evidence “might be considered” evidence of a crime, he is also legally duty-bound to report it to the prosecutors … as he did. He does not make interpretations.

        It was abundantly clear that he knows precisely what the enabling law “does and does not say.” The IG Act (enabling legislation); Privacy Acts; Classification rules. He knows what his role is – and, isn’t. My impression is that he’s an extremely good officer.

          So does the Founders hatred and intentional avoidance of the secret, notorious Star Chamber English Court, date back centuries. That is why we have the limitation of Federal Power, and the Bill of Rights, Due Process, Probable Cause, the right to a jury, public defenders….
          The FISC avoids all that stuff….
          The FBI/CIA/Department of Unequal Justice cannot lie to the President and lie to Congress “because of the delicacy” of spying on the President (and spying on Congress), without violation of 18 USC 1001, and other criminal statutes when part of a conspiracy or coup.

          Grand Jury secrecy itself, what goes on in the Grand Jury proceedings, can be fully preserved, while at the same time declassifying records of criminality, conspiracy and denial of civil rights under color of government authority. There is no adverse effect on prosecution – the criminals all know what they did here.

          The government FBI/CIA/DoJ/obama-administration criminals and FISC collaborators are relying on secrecy. Secrecy corrupts, and absolute secrecy corrupts absolutely. Secrecy is used to hide wrongdoing, corruption and embarrassment. Even the $75,000 cost of an FBI conference table is a national security secret that could threaten our national security. Declassifying the now-hidden evidence will not only reveal the criminal wrongdoing, it will have an even greater effect. It will show that “redactions” are made to hide wrongdoing, and demonstrate the corruptness of the classification authority to hide wrongdoing. It will show the need for new criminal statutes for using “classification” to hide bad behavior from congressional, prosecutorial and public scrutiny.

    Senate Action Expected On Big Tech Green Card Bill:
    By Jessica M. Vaughan

    — According to advocacy groups representing the Big Tech employers and their guest workers, today the Senate will consider a bill that would dramatically change our system for awarding employment green cards in a way that rewards their business model — which has displaced U.S. workers on a grand scale. …

    — This bill is anything but fair to U.S. workers, because it strengthens and perpetuates a system that is actively displacing them. It offers a major concession to employers who have bypassed U.S. workers for decades, without reforming the system to reduce guest worker admissions or prevent employers from displacing U.S. workers.

      This should be posted in every single classroom across America.

      IMHO, every public school and university classroom should be required to have cameras when classes are in session. The only way parents will be able to ensure their children are not indoctrinated is either to home school them or have the ability to review what is being presented. This is no way should be restricted. Cops have cameras. Classrooms should have cameras. These institutions receive public funding from taxpayers. Taxpayers should demand this – parents must get on the offense.

      America has awakened to the fact, largely due to the credit of trusted internet sources and 3 cable news outlets, that there is a pattern of leftist indoctrination occurring within schools and universities. Teachers engaged in revisionist history. Drag Queen story hours. Professors bullying students in MAGA hats. Teachers threatening to assassinate the VP. What will it take?

          The cameras are already there in every device in these classrooms. School owned Teacher computers seem like a good place to start.

          • As I said, cameras are there, yes, but not the capacity or permission to make recordings. Secure recording capability costs about double what cameras do. They have to go on school system owned separate drives. I still haven’t heard who’s paying.

            You can’t just record on to teacher’s computers. That opens up huge privacy issues legally, as well as chain-of-custody problems on the ownership and handling of recordings (which could be edited). The parents of any students being recorded would have to provide releases. Some will refuse, essentially making them unusable as evidence. I went through these issues when my son’s school tried years ago.

              You allow students to record lectures if they choose. Public is public. There are no issues. If you can record in a health facility, you can record in a school. If you can record in a prison, you can record in a school. If you can record in a shopping mall, you can record in a school. If you can record in public government buildings, you can record in a school. We are talking public schools and universities….not private.

              Sounds like the school was the problem not wanting it. Funny how leftists don’t want to police themselves, but want to police everyone else…

              • No, non-commercial “fair use” (students taking video notes) isn’t the same thing. And recording in a mall for security is not the same thing legally. It’s commercial space vs. government space. And convicts have already lost some privacy rights along with their sentences. Lawyers can still sometimes get the recordings excluded from court.

                I really did go through all this years ago.

                  Not to beat a dead horse, but that cannot be so. We were allowed to record lectures at the public university I attended in the ’90s. I have never heard any change to that. Public schools and universities receive taxpayer funds. Perhaps legal cases ruled on this.

              Of course you are correct. Many states, like California, require by all parties to recored audible tapes of conversations give the permission to be recorded or a felony has been committed. You can have the visual part without permission but not the audible part. If an audible tape has been recorded with the permission of all, that recorded tape cannot be altered or edited with the permission of all involved or another felony has been committed.

    GERMAN INTEL: IRAN SOUGHT TO ACQUIRE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION IN 2018

    A new German intelligence report from the state of Hesse on Wednesday outlined the Islamic Republic of Iran’s illicit espionage activities in the central European country, including efforts to obtain weapons of mass destruction during 2018.

    The Hesse report noted that, “Against this background [of proliferation], weapons of mass destruction continued to be a powerful political instrument during the reporting period, which could shake the stability of an entire state structure in both regional and international crisis situations. In particular, states such as Iran, North Korea, Pakistan and Syria attempted to acquire and redistribute such weapons in the context of proliferation, for example by concealing transport routes via third countries.”
    ….
    The report’s findings mirrored the conclusions from German state intelligence reports in the states of Bavaria and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

    In May, The Bavaria intelligence report said that Iran’s regime is “making efforts to expand its conventional arsenal of weapons with weapons of mass destruction.”

    The German intelligence agency for the northern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern wrote in its May report that: “The fight against the illegal proliferation of nuclear, biological or chemical weapons of mass destruction and the materials needed for their manufacture, as well as the corresponding delivery systems [e.g. rockets], including the necessary knowledge, in cooperation with other authorities, is also the responsibility of counterintelligence.”

      As I posted the other day, knowing that German education works with industry to plan out employer needs years in advance, what happened to nuclear power students when Merkel shut down German nuke power plants after Fukishima?

      German education is has much as a set in stone process as you can get. Elementary school, either college prep, business prep or apprentice track in middle school and college prep for those 11th, 12th & 13th grade college tracks leading to an exit exam and on to University, depending on exit exams.

      There’s no real career change or ‘going back to college’, if you change careers you pretty much start over at 10th grade. I’ll give an example, an acquaintance (with a German HS exit exam) who was a US college grad and a HS teacher in the US had to go back to HS in Germany to fulfill a low level education job requirement when they returned to Germany, including taking basic English. Couldn’t even waiver the English requirement even though this person knew English exponentially better than the teacher, with English aptitude tests to prove it.

      That said, since I didn’t hear of any former nuke students protesting in the streets, I wonder where they are. I’m having a hard time squaring this circle.

      I think we’re watching the end game offense against the EU being initiated by jacking up Iran sanctions. I saw that Macron is already crybabying and threatening to do his own investigation about the attack on the SA oil refinery; i.e., he doesn’t believe SA. The goal is to shake out the dirty dealings involved with subsidizing EU industries in the Obama Iran deal and Macron is worried.

      That’s my take.

    To coincide with Stillwater’s “We Build the Wall” posts:

    As we focus on the crucial “Wall”, we must also start focusing on the government, leftist groups, and religious organizations that are quietly transplanting thousands of “refugees” in communities all over the United States.

    Who on PDJT’s Team is looking into this?

    This is as crucial as The Wall. A stealth operation of balkanizing our country and destroying our sovereignty and safety must be addressed with the same voracity as the transparent border crisis.

    • All of this, most unfortunately, is the “back end” of the human trafficking international crime-ring that brought these people to the borders in the first place. And it’s all being done very deliberately, protected by Congress and by people who look at euphemisms instead of “horrific facts.”

      “The Peculiar Institution” didn’t go away, folks. I would love to stand here saying that the 13th Amendment – passed in 1865 – made a difference. But, it did not. Slave ships are still calling at ports in Africa, and men and women and children are being made to walk(!) hundreds of miles in tropic summer heat, just to be victimized again once they arrive here. I don’t use the adjective “horrific” lightly. While everyone around you is looking the other way, including your own Government … “just turn around.”

      “The Wall” is [finally …] being built for many good reasons, and many of them are actually humanitarian. But our Congress refuses to act, and trust me that there is a rea$on for that. International crime rings have friends in very high places. And, I wish to God that I could say that it isn’t so. 😭

    Iran’s Threat to Saudi Critical Infrastructure: The Implications of U.S.-Iranian Escalation
    (Excerpt)
    ‘There is growing concern about Iranian threats to Persian Gulf countries—particularly Saudi Arabia—as friction persists between Iran and the United States. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned Iran’s missile program as “out of control” and a major threat to U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf.1 Senator Tom Cotton asked: “Can there be any doubt, any doubt that our partners in the Gulf are facing a genuine emergency as they fend off Iran? Oil tankers flying the flags of our allies and partners are ablaze in the Gulf of Oman.”2 And Saudi oil minister Khalid Al Falih lamented, “I am concerned though about the security of oil supplies from threats from state and non-state actors that we’ve seen. We’ve seen ships being attacked, we’ve seen pipelines being attacked, we’ve seen drones being launched from militias that are agents of Iran and that’s putting the global energy supply at risk.”

    • However – I think that it’s well worth reading an article written recently by Finian Cunningham on rt.com – yes, the international site that is partly financed by (gasp!) “The Russians™”:

      US defense failure… Why Washington has to blame Iran over Saudi attacks

      https://www.rt.com/op-ed/468935-saudi-oil-field-drone-attack/

      Finian suggests that “the Iranians” might not be the ones who ordered the very crippling drone air-strikes, which promptly knocked out several billion-dollar American supplied defense systems. He suggests other culprits, then with a level hand points out the American need to fix blame (and, save face).

      Saudi Arabia [the world’s third-largest military …] has spent billions of dollars in recent years purchasing US Patriot missile defense systems and supposedly cutting-edge radar technology from the Pentagon. If the Yemeni rebels can fly combat drones up to 1,000 kilometers into Saudi territory and knock out the linchpin production sites in the kingdom’s oil industry, then that should be a matter of huge embarrassment for US “protectors.”

      I simply offer this link to this community without further interpretation, for your consideration as an alternative and well-argued viewpoint on this extremely dangerous global situation.

    • In some ways, “I think this really had to happen.” We needed a demonstration of just how far Congressmen will go to “Get Trump.™” We also needed to hear from Lawfare attorneys directly, on the Record. They obviously told Nadler that “they could get the job done,” and that the established rules of Congress should just be ignored in the name of “getting Trump.” And we see ourselves that once again they were completely wrong.

      Yes, these Rules violations are very serious. Chairman Nadler should be forcibly removed: he now could be, according to the Rules. He could also be officially censured, as Sen. McCarthy once was. The House could even, conceivably, “expel a Member.”

      I doubt that the House Impeachment Committee will actually do these things, but their credibility is fading very fast.

      I predict that they will very soon introduce Articles of Impeachment – because they now have nowhere else to go – and that it will fail on the floor of the House.

      The very obvious “fly in the ointment” is: “how, exactly, does the ‘flag’ get raised?”

      I don’t see anything comparable to, say, the “search warrant” system here. (Why not?) Where are the “checks and balances?” Where is the “presumption of innocence?” That “this is presumed by law to be a law-abiding citizen exercising Constitutional rights?” If those controls don’t exist, then we have a historical name for it: tyranny. And, as a society, we should avoid this at all costs – because we know damned well where it leads – no matter what “reasons” are proffered.
