    Facistbook update – Trump needs to continue to dox the truth about the Coup lawyers and their whistleblowers…

    If Ciaramella turns out to be the whistleblower, and that definitely seems to be the case, then knowing his history as an anti-Trump operative accused of leaking sensitive information as well as participating in multiple attempted “take downs” of the President is important information for the people to know. We aren’t talking about taking down a tobacco company or a hedge fund. This particular whistleblower has incentives to take down a sitting President of the United States for what seems to be purely political reasons. Facebook is wrong to censor his name, let along the details surrounding his motivations.

    As a private company, Facebook enjoys autonomy. But as a so-called “platform” that enjoys protections from legal consequences as a result of their propagation of user content, it does not make sense to censor legal information. If they want to censor illegal activities like doxxing or the spread of child pornography, that’s well within their charter and would not threaten their protections as a platform. But once they stop calling legal balls and strikes and start censoring based on the sensibilities of a progressive mindset, they’ve entered into the realm of editing for opinion, and that means they’re no longer acting as a platform.

    “Academic models suggest that oil prices are up to $40 – $50 per barrel lower than they would have been were it not for the US fracking revolution. Benefits have primarily flowed to China, India, Japan and South Korea which constitute four of the world’s five largest oil importers (the US itself being one of the top five), largely at the cost of reduced oil revenues to OPEC and Russia. Given Asia’s oil consumption of almost 36 million barrel per day in 2018, the region’s consumers would have saved over $325 billion dollars annually if crude oil prices were lower by just $25 per barrel due to the US production boom.”

      The big takeaway here is the Democrats were working a very coordinated plan immediately following the whistleblower’s complaint (which they shouldn’t have had yet) and well before its existence was revealed to the public.

      This group is more loyal to the cult of Obama and far-left ideology than to America. Does that group, with their arms crossed over their chests looking unable to accept defeat look like a group that would genuinely transition power peacefully? Obviously, NOT. KELLYANNE CONWAY AND MICK MULVANEY need to take a good hard look at the holdovers in this pick and throughout the White House and CHANGE STAFF FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

    “Exclusive: ASML chip tool delivery to China delayed amid US ire
    Dutch company caught in crossfire of Sino-US feud for tech supremacy”

    Excerpt:
    “ TAIPEI — ASML, Europe’s largest manufacturer of specialized chipmaking machines, has fallen prey to Washington’s desire to curb Beijing’s technological ascent and delayed shipment of a crucial tool needed to develop China’s semiconductor industry, the Nikkei Asian Review has learned.

    ASML’s move comes as the U.S. carefully scrutinizes all major companies in Chinese tech supply chains, such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world’s largest chipmaker, which supplies chips to Huawei, the Chinese tech company that the U.S. has accused of spying.

    China’s biggest maker of computer chips, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp., placed the order with ASML in April last year for its cutting-edge machine, which is needed to produce the latest, most powerful chips. But that shipment is now “pending later notice,” three people close to the situation said.

    As the world’s sole supplier of the so-called extreme ultraviolet lithography chip tool, or EUV, the delayed shipment is a blow to Beijing’s aspirations to achieve self-sufficient, technological supremacy. However, ASML’s use of the word “delay” suggests that eventual shipment has not been ruled out.

    “ASML has decided for now to hold back delivery of the EUV equipment as it does not want to make the U.S. government upset that it ships the most advanced chip tool to China” right now, said one of the sources with knowledge of ASML’s thinking.

    “But at the same time it [ASML] does not want to make China and its Chinese customers feel bad [about the delay] as that is its fastest-growing [tech] market,” the source added. The delivery was previously scheduled for the end of 2019 with installation completed by mid-2020, the person said.

    It is not clear whether the delayed shipment to China’s SMIC by ASML, which has a production plant in the U.S., was due to direct or indirect pressure from American authorities, or because ASML was also seeking a renewed export permit from the Dutch government.

    The company said that “a request for the renewal/extension of the export license for EUV to China is currently being processed by the Dutch government. Pending this process we cannot ship EUV to China.”

    The Dutch company’s delicate position is mirrored by other companies in global tech supply chains, such as TSMC, which find themselves sandwiched between the competing geopolitical and commercial interests of their largest customers, which are often based in China or the U.S.

    Around 16% of ASML’s annual system sales of 8.3 billion euros ($9.2 billion) come from U.S. companies, such as Intel and Micron, which use its equipment to produce ever-smaller circuits on the most advanced computer chips and therefore need it to maintain technological leadership.

    One-fifth of the components that ASML needs to build its machines are also made at its U.S. plant in Connecticut, one source said.

    Against that, 19% of sales last year came from China, which is a faster-growing market, not least from clients such as Beijing-backed SMIC.“

    Tell The Senate: “No Perks for past Presidents! Vote for S.580 –
    The Presidential Allowance And Modernization Act, a.k.a. the ‘Presidential Perks Bill.”

    S.580 would dramatically scale back the taxpayer-funded benefits currently enjoyed by former Presidents.

    Ina age when former Presidents rake in money with astronomical speaking fees, book deals, and Netflix contracts, the last thing they need are millions of dollars in taxpayer handouts.

    The Presidential Perks Bill would cap the monetary allowances for former Presidents; limit their pensions to $200,000 per year; and reduce a former President’s monetary allowance dollar-for-dollar for every dollar of income earned over $400,000.

    The Presidential Perks Bill is commonsense, bipartisan legislation that reduces the benefits that former presidents receive without impacting their security and protection.

    Tell your U.S. Senators today to follow the House’s lead and pass the Presidential Allowance and pass the Presidential Allowance and Modernization Act!

      Most likely this bill is aimed at DJT, to limit his salary post Presidency. I seriously doubt it retroactively reduces anything for current living previous Presidents.

      We already had a bill that reduced secret service protection from lifetime to 10 years. Under that bill Clinton was to be the last with lifetime protection, but it was reversed under Obama.

      I think reducing the pension to 50% is fine, but only if it is across the board. I have a feeling this is a petty effort aimed at DJT, if so I will not support it. Lastly, I think one of the biggest expenses besides security for former Presidents has to do with their staffs. I understand immediately after leaving office needing a large staff to ensure compliance as things are archived, etc. After an initial time period though, there shouldn’t be a need for such large staff.

        I doubt that this bill is aimed at POTUS, since he is not a ‘former president’ and I do not think he is BFF with Netflix – not that he would want or need to be.

        It is certain that former presidents can find funding for their staff and other projects after leaving office other than taxpayer dollars. They pay out of their pockets – not ours.

        There is a suggestion to write a personal opinion with this petition. Or, since silence means consent of the existing structure, don’t do anything regarding this issue.

    The Watergate Scandal could more accurately have been called the Nixon Tapes Scandal. A White House functionary named Butterfield revealed that Nixon had the Oval Office packed with voice-activated microphones (more mics than Nadler has stains on his necktie). Instantly, the game became get those tapes!

    Special Prosecutor Cox subpoenaed some of the tapes; that’s why Nixon fired him, that’s why the Saturday Night Massacre happened. Rose Mary Woods, Nixon’s secretary, got the far-fetched blame for causing an 18 1/2 minute gap in a most incriminating conversation between Nixon and his Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman. And the so-called Smoking Gun tape was Nixon asking the CIA to persuade the FBI to drop the whole thing on account of National Security. That puff of smoke blew Nixon all the way to San Clemente.

    The Trump Coup being run now for 3 years by the Democrats is modeled on Watergate; surely they’d go looking for tapes, or something similar to use against Trump. Trump does not use tapes, he won’t even allow note-taking in his presence. (If there’s any taping going on, it’s the FBI furtively recording Trump: that’s the scandal for another day.) One exception: Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders are recorded. It’s not surprising that the people doggedly trying to reproduce Watergate would go down this road. And not surprising that they assumed Trump would emulate Nixon and refuse to release the tapes or any transcripts.

    Twice now, at key junctures in their plot, Trump has gone off-script and refused to play Nixon in their drama. No Saturday Night Massacre for Mueller, and if anything Trump was eager to produce his Ukraine conversation transcript.

    I’ll predict that they won’t let this go; the Democrats will make wild allegations about other conversations with other world leaders, and demand they likewise be produced. Surely there must be a record that’s gone missing, or a suspiciously long redaction, something they can use.

    One other sinister observation: Hillary Clinton is one of the few people left alive who worked on the Watergate investigation. I suspect she’s pushing the Democrats to use Watergate as a template. I also suspect Russian Collusion is much more her brainchild, than we know; I note she’s now throwing Russian Collusion at Tulsi. The Russia smear is her baby, and she’s proud of it.

      “big structural change”

      It occurred to me that it may actually be easier to just start a whole new country somewhere than to attempt to massively restructure an existing one like the Good Ol’ U.S. of A.

      Thinking something on the Moon. Or perhaps a more exotic locale, like Mars. Bonus: the Climate Change thing would be settled up there, so that would simplify planning considerably.

      Or, perhaps more practically, she could start small… an island somewhere. Bloomberg could get her started.

    For a few months now, I’ve suspected that there haven’t been any indictments yet because the investigation keeps expanding — the more they dig, the more corruption they uncover. Basically, the web of “rot” is so extensive that a lot of work is required to uncover it all.

    So let me get this right, Trump gets impeached for offering a quid pro quo to Ukraine no one can find in the transcript. McConnell tells Trump that the way to avoid losing his trial in the Senate for offering a quid pro quo (that doesn’t exist) to Ukraine is to give quid pro quo’s to individual GOP Senators to buy their support in the impeachment trial. I thought quid quo pros were bad. I didn’t think you were allowed to buy votes. I thought Senators would look at the evidence not the size of the quid pro quo Trump might offer Senators in return for a not guilty decision. Why isn’t McConnell impeached for soliciting quid pro quo’s for votes? Why is Murkowski vote dependent on a bribe? Why are Trumps political opponents who are Senators allowed to sit in judgement of Trump? Boy, I wonder how they will vote. This is insane.

POTUS has been doing that all this time. McConnell is suggesting it is especially important now and I agree. Pivoting off the Ukraine is also sound advice. The Left wants POTUS mired in that mess, for him to publicly rise above it & deal important issues in the Nation’s interest, leaving the lawyers and House Members Meadows, Jordan, Collins, Nunez, Gaetz & McCarthy to work on Ukraine is the correct path. In private he will of course be very much in the loop.

      I took this differently. First, if Ed Henry’s hearsay is accurate, the advise Turtle is giving is practical – not emotional. Secondly, if there can be a positive aspect to a Senate trial, Turtle has tapped into it, which is holding the trial during the 6 weeks prior to the Iowa Dem campaigning time frame whereby every Dem senators running for Prez must be in the Senate daily for the trial instead of campaining in Iowa.

      Course that gives Mayor Pete and Bloomberg the advantage. OTOH if gives the loser Dems senator a save-face public reason for being losers.

        Old man Bush was the ‘Praetorian Guard” acting as ‘Emperor maker’ in that scenario just like his good buddy Dick Cheney was for his son G. Bush Jr. (the puppet).

        Both old man Bush and Cheney were heads of the CIA. See a common thread here with Brennan? Maybe that is why Brennan is always scowling…it was supposed to be a Clinton-Brennan ticket. Or maybe a Bloomberg-Brennan ticket. The CIA ‘king makers’ are there to control the narrative.

        Do you remember post-9/11 when Bush was in a bunker and Cheney was in a different one? Bush would do a press conference announcing something and 2 hours later Cheney would give one of his own refuting what Bush said. Bush would later say ‘yup, what he said.’ CIA running the show….

    So Virginians are facing prison or government raids on their homes with gun confiscation. They are also planning gun registries and putting people in prison for using a family members gun while target shooting etc.

    Virginia is the test case for what’s coming nationwide once the democrats get control of the Congress and Whitehouse again.

    And remember the GOP and NRA spent less money in VA than the Democrats did in one race.

    Also remember Republicans had a higher vote count than Democrats but unelected judges had redrawn our districts to insure Democrats would win no matter the vote count. This also is happening state by state with the work of Eric Holder.

      I watched the Gov brag about rounding up the guns of law abiding citizens as though it will be like taking candy from a baby.

      Then I thought about Canada who pushed though an extensive gun grabbing bill but let it very quietly die years later when because it was unenforceable.

      The Canadian citizens were not anxious to give up their guns and the law enforcement agencies were not anxious to go into homes where they knew there were guns to take them away from armed citizens.

      I was quite surprised at the Canadians backbone on this one, they usually are so liberal.

      Maybe the residents of Virginia will not be so happy to turn their guns over to law enforcement either.

      Just one incident of police going into a home and blowing away women and children to take away their guns will sour the public on the Govs bright and happy new idea.
