    • I agree. Let’s hear from the top Watergate Prosecutor:

      via Hot Air: Highly-respected Chief Counsel to the House Judiciary Committee Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career. Why?

      “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

      Zeifman: “After hiring Hillary, Doar assigned her to confer with me regarding rules of procedure for the impeachment inquiry. At my first meeting with her I told her that Judiciary Committee Chairman Peter Rodino, House Speaker Carl Albert, Majority Leader “Tip” O’Neill, Parliamentarian Lou Deschler and I had previously all agreed that we should rely only on the then existing House Rules, and not advocate any changes. I also quoted Tip O’Neill’s statement that: “To try to change the rules now would be politically divisive. It would be like trying to change the traditional rules of baseball before a World Series.”

      Hillary assured me that she had not drafted, and would not advocate, any such rules changes. However, as documented in my personal diary, I soon learned that she had lied. She had already drafted changes, and continued to advocate them. In one written legal memorandum, she advocated denying President Nixon representation by counsel. In so doing she simply ignored the fact that in the committee’s then most recent prior impeachment proceeding, the committee had afforded the right to counsel to Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas.

      I had also informed Hillary that the Douglas impeachment files were available for public inspection in the committee offices. She later removed the Douglas files without my permission and carried them to the offices of the impeachment inquiry staff — where they were no longer accessible to the public.”…….

      Fact Check: “Specifically, Zeifman contends that Rodham and others wanted Richard Nixon to remain in office to bolster the chances of Sen. Ted Kennedy or another Democrat being elected president. …Rodham [was] trying to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

      In order to pull this off, Zeifman said that Rodham wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents. After the Nixon impeachment investigation was finished, Zeifman fired Rodham and said he refused to give her a letter of recommendation. Zeifman said he regrets not reporting Rodham to the appropriate bar association.”

      “My…regret; when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations. B]ecause of a number of her unethical practices I decided that I could not recommend her for any subsequent position of public or private trust. Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president — and if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.”

      He was right, too. Case Closed.

        The butterfly effect…if only Zeifman had followed through and reported Hillary to the Bar Association back then, so much of what has happened to our country in the last 40 years might not have happened. It’s a hard but undeniable fact of life that ignoring criminal wrong doing early on, in the hope that the person will change, almost NEVER works and usually emboldens them to continue because when they “get away” with small crimes, it’s easy to commit and justify larger, more serious ones!

        Vince Foster, Seth Rich, and Jeffrey Epstein had no comment on the matter…

          Exactly right vikingmom, excellent illustration of ‘the butterfly effect’. The trajectories of history from a little nudge of a decision to act or not to reverberates throughout time. For good or bad. Only God can turn it around:

          Romans 8:28
          King James Version
          28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

          HIS story (history) is already written, we are witnessing the unveiling of it and we know that He is not mocked, He WILL repay.

          Thanks for the great ‘butterfly effect’ illustration vikingmom!

        When lawyers argue their cases before juries, the judges always remind them (juries) that what lawyers say IS NOT EVIDENCE. However, opposing counsel can object by arguing that what was said is a ‘misstatement of the record!’ Then a judge will rule for or against.
        Oftentimes judges can’t remember whether or not it is a misstatement, so they will allow it, cautioning that the statement is only a legal ‘argument’ and not ‘evidence.’ The jury is then encouraged to rely on its own recollection of the facts.

      Bill of Rights, Incorporation

      Liked by 3 people

      • rah says:

        Screw incorporation, It is a fabrication of the SCOTUS to try and claim that certain rights, as expressed in the BOL are not as binding as the other rights enumerated in the BOL. Thus the 1st and 14th are “incorporated” but the 2nd and 10th are not! IMO no SCOTUS nor anyone or any mechanism other than the convention of the states has the moral or legal power or right to claim that one right in the BOL is superior or inferior to another. Every right applies to every citizen and no state has the power to infringe upon them and if it is not enumerated then the 10th applies. The right way to have dealt with Jim Crow would have been an article specifically dealing with equal rights for individuals and thus binding on the states to recognize those individual rights instead of setting up “incorporation” which by it’s very nature sets certain articles of the BOL superior to others by saying some apply to states and others do not!

  4. Sharyl Attkisson: “Camps largely divided along political lines. Many right-leaning media figures sided with hydroxychloroquine while the left-leaning press backed remdesivir. Each accusing the other of ignoring real science.

    Dr. William O’Neill: I’ve never seen science politicized in 40 years of practice.

    Sharyl: Cardiologist Dr. William O’Neill is a medical director at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan where they’re studying both remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine. Some people in the media are treating hydroxychloroquine as if it’s something that’s being pitched by charlatans, it’s dangerous, and that’s been debunked and discredited. What do you make of that?

    Dr. O’Neill: I think that’s very harmful. President Trump touted it early and so then the media set out to disprove and discredit it without any regard for science. I think those of us that are actually involved in the scientific endeavor feel that there is some value to it and it has to be tested.

    Sharyl: Dr. O’Neill says he’s prescribed hydroxychloroquine to help numerous coronavirus patients and saw improvement in all of them. He’s less impressed, so far, by remdesivir.

    Dr. O’Neill: There’s a lot of hype for the drug. I saw the original new England Journal article study and I saw the Lancet study and to me it’s just like a big Ho Hum. I just don’t see a big benefit to it.

    Sharyl: Adding to the drama and confusion, a draft version of a study was accidentally published last month showing remdesivir did not help most coronavirus patients and caused such serious side effects, 18 test subjects were taken off the drug. Gilead, the maker of remdesivir, did not respond to our interview requests but has said it ended the study because it couldn’t find enough volunteers to take part. On May 1, the FDA seemed to give remdesivir the edge, allowing emergency use for severely ill coronavirus patients at the same time, stepping up cautions against hydroxychloroquine and its sister drug saying they should only be taken in the hospital or as part of a formal study due to reports of “serious heart rhythm problems.”

    Dr. O’Neill is now leading a study to find out if hydroxychloroquine can serve a critical role as a medicine to prevent coronavirus. But he says the bad press is making it difficult.

    Dr. O’Neill: Now people are scared to use the drug without any scientifically valid concern. We’ve talked with our colleagues at the University of Minnesota who are doing a similar study, and at the University of Washington. We’ve treated 400 patients and haven’t seen a single adverse event. And what’s happening is because of this fake news and fake science, the true scientific efforts are being harmed because people now are so worried that they don’t want to enroll in the trials.

    Dr. Steven Hatfill: Why are the press running medicine in the United States? This is not right.

    Sharyl: Dr. Steven Hatfill is a biomedical scientist who worked on Ebola and studies pandemic responses and medicine. He says there’s an unwarranted campaign against hydroxychloroquine.

    Sharyl: You think lives were lost because it wasn’t used?

    Dr. Hatfill: Yes, lives were lost.

    He took hydroxychloroquine years ago for malaria and recently, again, to test to prevent coronavirus.

    Sharyl: A preventive would mean, if it were to work, that the fear that this comes back before there’s a working vaccine, the fear that we have another shutdown …

    Dr. Hatfill: a return to work … early detection, return to work. Would I give it as a prophylaxis to everybody? No. But for fit, healthy, critical workers going back to work or high risk populations; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, ex-smokers, diabetics, obesity …

    Sharyl: Might work for them?

    Dr. Hatfill: It might work for them.

    Sharyl: A third scientist we spoke to, who says hydroxychloroquine has been unfairly disparaged, is Dr. Jane Orient, head of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. How do you account for the difference in medical and scientific opinion about this drug? Because some people seem so certain that it can be a positive benefit to coronavirus patients, maybe even crucial in the early days, whereas some people are convinced it should absolutely not be used.

    Dr. Orient: That’s a very good question. But the ones who have the most experience are very enthusiastic about the possibilities. And we do have naysayers that we suspect may have a little conflict of interest because they are so enthusiastic about remdesivir, which is a new drug that hasn’t been approved for anything. And that so far is showing a really very equivocal or even negative results.

    Sharyl: All three scientists criticized that VA report casting doubt on hydroxychloroquine as little more than a list of cases with crucial details missing. It turns out one author of the report received research funding from Gilead, the maker of remdesivir, including a 247-thousand dollar grant in 2018.

    Orient: I think we have to look at the money. There’s no big profits made in hydroxychloroquine. It’s very cheap, easy to manufacture, been around for 70 years. It’s generic. Remdesivir is a new drug that could be very expensive and very lucrative if it’s ever approved. So I think we really do have to consider there’s some financial interest involved here.

    Dr. Hatfill: Some of these decisions did not seem to be rational. And when things, in my opinion that are so clear, the right path to take aren’t taken, very often: Money is somehow involved.

    Sharyl: When it comes to money, we checked financial ties among experts on the government panel devising coronavirus treatment guidelines— which had the effect of dialing back hydroxychloroquine use and giving an edge to remdesivir. We found that of 11 members reporting links to a drug company, nine of them named relationships to remdesivir’s maker Gilead. Seven more, including two of the committee’s leaders, have ties to Gilead beyond the 11 months they had to disclose. Two were on Gilead’s advisory board. Others were paid consultants or received research support and honoraria. Nobody reported ties to hydroxychloroquine which is now made by numerous generic manufacturers and is so cheap, analysts say even a spike in sales would not be a financial driver for the companies.”

        Surgeons and medical teams wear masks to prevent accidental exchange of body fluids, from them to open wounds and from blood spray from the patient. Often includes eye protection too. Surgical and cloth masks do not protect either the infected or uninfected.

        Just wait a month or so. The CDC is cycling back to the pre-Covid-19 panic to previous guidelines backed by decades of studies. The WHO has already returned to science backed guidelines that say healthy people should not wear masks daily to prevent respiratory infections, because surgical and cloth masks are not effective barriers. Since viruses can infect through the eyes, masks alone are never efficient barriers in high risks environments.

        An infected person wearing a masks does not protect other people. It’s a media narrative with no science behind it. No studies have ever shown any such benefit and to date, none of the current theoretical computer models saying there might be benefit have advanced from hypothetical to human trials to test their theories.

    I’m not sure I believe McCarthy. He kinda glosses over something today in his NYPost column. He is saying that the FBI had unmasked summarizations of Flynn’s conversations with no paperwork. I’m just curious what basis they would have to be able to intercept his calls. I am not a lawyer but the 4th amendment is not that complicated. You need judicial branch approval to listen in on a US citizen. Perhaps someone can fill me in on exactly what basis they were using because I don’t get it. He seems to be conflating an open counter intelligence case with the 702 access to the Russian ambassador. How exactly does that skirt the need for a judge to give permission first? I am very suspicious that McCarthy is covering for the FBI here. FISA is that blanket judicial branch access but I am not understanding how a counterintelligence case alone gives the FBI the ability to ignore the 4th amendment.

      With freedom, and possibly the state coming to take your kids away, people are crazy for getting tested if they’re not sick. Especially in light of the fact it has been demonstrated the test is unreliable, giving a lot of false positives and negatives. Even if you are sick, there’s risks to causing an endless number of people you’ve been in contact who aren’t sick to get in the same hot water. Honestly, I’m drinking tonic water(quinine) and doubling down on zinc at this point as a preventative.

      Chrissy is horrible. It is all about the gotcha question, damn the idea of securing straight information and news from his guests. His Daddy sucked eggs and little Chissy does too. Ever noticed his eyebrows? Good grief, I think he must be a cross-dresser.

    From Diana West, the author of several books such as “The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy”, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character”, and “Death Of The Grown-Up” come the following related tweet:

    This is a sensational news story, not just a tweet:
    BREAKING: “Longtime Fox Senior Correspondent Reports `the Agencies’ (IC?) Have Fully Penetrated All News Majors With Persons `On Payroll By Choice, Or not.”
    ===>Before I left Fox, I was told the agencies…depending on which one…”have someone at every major news outlet.” Either on payroll by choice, or not. Makes sense whether you agree or not. It wasn’t a surprise to me, but a surprise that someone admitted it to me.

    Well, lookie here.

    Pennsylvania is apparently trying to shift the blame of the nearly 70% of the Covid-19 deaths occurring in PA nursing homes — by blaming the nursing homes themselves for Wolf’s disastrous policy.

    https://www.pennlive.com/coronavirus/2020/05/nearly-1000-pa-nursing-home-complaints-investigated-during-coronavirus-health-officials.html

    Keep in mind that this is the same PA Department of Health that ‘allowed’ Dr. Kermit Gosnell to continue to perform abortions in a filthy, deplorable clinic in Philadelphia for decades. The Dept. of Health refused to even inspect his facility for 16 years.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2013/04/15/the-gosnell-case-heres-what-you-need-to-know/

    Yet now, the PA Department of Health has suddenly acquired ethics & standards?

    Dr. Richard (Rachel) Levine has no shame.

      Wolf and Levine should be forcibly removed fron office. Preferably by state or federal law enforcement, but these two are rouge actors not even attempting to follow the rule of law.

    How did I miss this?!!!!

    The FBI DOES know of communications between Seth Rich and Wikileaks!

    “I am reliably informed that the NSA or its partners intercepted at least some of the communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks. Before elaborating on that, however, I should first note the extent to which the “deep state” has already tried to cover up information about Mr. Rich. In an October 9, 2018 affidavit submitted in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, FBI section chief David M. Hardy testified that (1) the FBI did not investigate any matters pertaining to Mr. Rich, and (2) the FBI was unable to locate any records about Mr. Rich. Both claims were unequivocally false.”

    In a rare step that adds to this criminal case’s already unusual path, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan has retained Beth Wilkinson to represent him in defending his decision to a federal appeals court in Washington, according to a person familiar with the hire who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

      Why doesn’t Sullivan know how he justifies his extraordinary conduct on the Flynn case?

      Why does he need a lawyer? Does he foresee some Circuit Court action beyond a reversal and an order to grant DOJ’s motion to dismss with prejudice? Disciplinary referral?

      Also, a Federal judge is the sole person in control of their docket. It’s obvious Sullivan isn’t, needs friends of the court to help him and an outside attorney to justify his actions.

      I don’t think this will end well for him, he is the one the Senate confirmed to occupy that seat. How many other people he’s sentenced will seek an appeal because of shady rulings that are now in question if they were his doing or not. I know I would if he jailed me.

      I don’t think an appellate court will look kindly on an outsider forming this “judges” opinions. The attorney is clearly not an Article III judge and therefore cannot develop guidance for this judge. Absurd. We imagine if a Trump appointed judge did this, Ice Cream Nancy would already have the impeachment articles drawn up.

  39. What in the hell is going on? Sullivan has hired a high-powered attorney to represent him. If there was any doubt, then this proves Sullivan is on the take.

    “In the wide-ranging interview with Full Measure set to air Sunday, Trump also addressed the debate over whether religious services should remain closed. Calling them “essential services,” he says it’s time for them to open.

    “Sharyl Attkisson: There are churches and religious leaders, New Jersey, Chicago, California who have said they’re going to defy if necessary, state orders and they’re going to open back up. Should they do that?

    President Trump: I think they’re going to be in great shape. We’re coming out with CDC probably today. In fact, right after this particular magnificent interview that you’re doing… I’m going to be reading an order from CDC, but we’re going to be requesting that they open. I think they’re going to be calling it an essential service, and it is an essential service, and we want to get our churches back open…When you look at some of the things that they consider an essential service, but they don’t consider religious freedom essential service. Now the ministers, the pastors, the rabbis, the anybody you want to say, the religious leaders, all religious leaders, they want to keep the people safe too. But when you see that they’re arresting people and they’re in parking lots in cars with windows, spas and the people are being arrested, it’s a disgrace. Honestly, it’s a disgrace.”

    “That was the insurance policy,” Trump tells Attkisson, speaking of the FBI’s targeting of the Trump campaign in 2016 and the transition team in early 2017. “[They thought ‘Clinton is] going to win but just in case she doesn’t, we have an insurance policy.’ And now I beat them on the insurance policy. And now they’re being exposed.”

  42. I need help. I saw a picture/meme of a comparison between masks protection for Cov-vid19 and chain link fence against mosquitoes. I have searched and searched and can not find it. I have a neighbor next door that does silk screen T-Shirts and want to have a bunch made, as well as a local business that does the same work. I would like to give them both business, but want/need the picture which I can not find to give to them. I do not want to make money, but want to spread the word about this stupidity. I will cover the costs of both up to $1,000 dollars for T- shirts at a reasonable price. They can have the money they make on sales. Just want to get the word out.
    Thank you in advance treepers.
    P.S. I live in northern New York.

    If you have Sirius XM, take a listen to the Patriot 125 channel during the last hour of Brian Kilmeade’s show. He has Dr. Drew Pinsky on who is talking about how the lockdown/shelter in place theory comes from the writings of a 14 year old girl back in 2006. I know some here have linked to this story, but to hear a well known doctor like Dr. Drew talk about it is mind boggling. Great listen if you can.
