Tuesday News Roundup: Assange Asylum, Georgia Shenanigans and Ron DeSantis 2024

Let’s start with some “In Case You Missed It” items that I skipped over the last couple of days:

First, there’s the fact that a judge in England has denied the U.S. extradition request for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, and will set bail for him later this week.

From a report at the Philadelphia Inquirer:

A British judge on Monday rejected the United States’ request to extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to face espionage charges over the publication of secret U.S. documents a decade ago, saying he was likely to kill himself if held under harsh U.S. prison conditions.

In a mixed ruling for Assange and his supporters, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser rejected defense arguments that the 49-year-old Australian faces a politically motivated American prosecution that rides roughshod over free-speech protections. But she said Assange’s precarious mental health would likely deteriorate further under the conditions of “near total isolation” he would face in a U.S. prison.

“I find that the mental condition of Mr. Assange is such that it would be oppressive to extradite him to the United States of America,” the judge said.

Lawyers for the U.S. government said they would appeal the decision, and the U.S. Department of Justice said it would continue to seek Assange’s extradition.

[End]

Then there’s the additional news that Mexico’s President Obrador has made an offer of full asylum for Assange: 

On top of all of that, the Prime Minister of Australia said on Monday that Assange would be free to return to that country once all of the British court proceedings have been completed and he has been released. From a story at The Hill:

Australia’s prime minister said Tuesday that his government would allow Julian Assange to return home should efforts fail to extradite the Wikileaks founder from London to face charges in the U.S.

Reuters reported that Scott Morrison made the remarks during a radio interview, telling the hosts that he had no inside information on Assange’s legal battles but adding that Australian consulate services are available to him and all other Australians.

“Well, the justice system is making its way and we’re not a party to that. And like any Australian, they’re offered consular support and should, you know, the appeal fail, obviously he would be able to return to Australia like any other Australian,” Morrison said.

“So, yes, it’s just a straightforward process of the legal system in the U.K. working its way through,” he continued, according to Reuters.

[End]

This is all important news in the U.S. for one simple reason: Julian Assange knows where all the bodies are buried, especially where the Democrat Party is concerned. More to the point, he knows the truth about the murder of Seth Rich, a truth that the DNC can never allow to come to light.

This is a story to watch closely.

This is funny only because it’s apparently true:

In case you believe Kelly Loeffler is a real part of the solution in Washington, well, think again. – Loeffler is married to the owner of the New York Stock Exchange, billionaire Jeff Sprecher. On Monday, even as his wifey was participating in a rally held by President Donald Trump on her behalf, Sprecher and his organization announced that it would defy a Trump executive order demanding that the NYSE and other U.S. stock exchanges de-list certain corporations controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.

From a story at CNBC:

NYSE says it will no longer delist three Chinese telecom giants

KEY POINTS
  • The New York Stock Exchange said it no longer plans to delist three Chinese telecommunications giants: China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom.
  • Four days earlier, the NYSE said it planned to drop those listings to comply with a November executive order from President Trump.
  • Trump sought to bar American companies and individuals from investing in firms that allegedly aid the Chinese military.

The New York Stock Exchange said it no longer plans to delist three Chinese telecommunications giants, reversing a decision announced four days earlier.

The NYSE said late Monday it dropped the plans after “further consultation with relevant regulatory authorities in connection with Office of Foreign Assets Control.”

[End]

If you are wondering if those “relevant regulatory authorities” included representatives of the ChiCom party, trust me, you are not alone.

Don’t get me wrong here: We need either Loeffler or David Perdue to win today’s runoff because their votes would deny Democrat efforts to eliminate the senate filibuster rule and prevent the stacking of the U.S. Supreme Court. But if you’ve been hoping Loeffler might actually a be a real reform-minded conservative who would support efforts to roll back the machinations of the DC Swamp, well, just let that go. She’s just Mitt Romney with long blonde hair, and Perdue is no better.

So, what do the polls in Georgia look like? – I predicted two weeks ago that a deal has been cut that would allow Loeffler to win her seat, while David Perdue would lose to John Ossoff. The only poll worth taking a look at, from the Trafalgar Group, shows – guess what? – Loeffler leading and Perdue trailing:

As I write elsewhere this morning, it all ultimately depends on how the Dominion Systems machines have been programmed. I’m betting they’ve been programmed to produce a split outcome.

You don’t have to believe me on this… – Let analyst Jovan Pulitzer, who hacked into a Dominion machine over the Internet during a live Georgia Senate hearing last week, explain it all to you:

Incidentally, you may remember that that Senate committee voted to allow Pulitzer to perform an audit on the Nov. 3 ballots in Fulton County. Pulitzer still has not been allowed access to those ballots by corrupt Sec. State Brad Raffensperger and his evil minions.

What a surprise, right?

This guy really needs to run for president. – Watch Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis embarrass a typically-biased hack reporter from CNN:

That is what a real reform-minded conservative Republican looks like. Keep him in mind for 2024 and beyond.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: COVID Fraud in Texas, Hackery From Politico, and the DNC Server Fiction Endures

It’s Friday, thank God, and we’re going to start this News Roundup with a couple of the funniest, most spot-on videos making the rounds of the Twitters this week.

First, this bit of absolute genius from @BennyJohnson:

And this one from @realpowertie wins the Internet both now and forever more:

Ok, enough of these shenanigans. Let’s move on to some actual news to round up…

This story didn’t get much notice yesterday, but the headline just irritates the hell out of me. – According to a British Intelligence report, the same group of Russians who supposedly “hacked the DNC” in 2016 attempted to steal COVID-19 data from the U.S. and its allies.

From a report at the Daily Caller, which quotes a Reuters report:

Russian government-backed hacking group reportedly attempted to steal research on coronavirus vaccines from the United States and its closest allies, according to a joint report from the U.S., Britain, and Canada released Thursday.

The report, published primarily through Britain’s National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), alleges the group APT29 or ‘Cozy Bear’ was responsible for attempting to break into academic and pharmaceutical institutions for information on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, according to Reuters. ‘Cozy Bear’ is reportedly the same hacking group widely accused of breaching the Democratic Party ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Russia is the second country the U.S. has accused of attempting to steal coronavirus research, having named China earlier this spring.

“While others pursue their selfish interests with reckless behavior, the U.K. and its allies are getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health,” British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said in a statement.

[End]

To be clear, there is not a single shred of actual evidence in the public record that supports the notion that any Russian “group” in fact “hacked” the DNC’s email server. Remember, the FBI just took the DNC’s word for that. Comey and McCabe just allowed the DNC to contract with a private security firm called “Crowdstrike” to audit its server, and that firm – which was later implicated in efforts by the Ukrainian government to influence the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princes – produced a report to the FBI which Comey and McCabe then treated as gospel.

There is, however, evidence on the public record that the DNC’s emails were in fact downloaded by a DNC employee – most likely Seth Rich who ended up murdered on a vacant street in the wee hours of the morning – onto a memory stick which was then passed on to WikiLeaks.

With all due respect to the folks at the Daily Caller, this is an incredibly misleading headline and article that should not have been published by any reputable news outlets without gobs of asterisks and clarifications. This is how Soviet-style disinformation pushed by the Democrats ends up being perpetuated by our national media.

In case you missed it… – This happened in Texas this week:

In answer to Mr. Eagar’s question: Yes, this same thing fraudulent reporting of COVID-19 “cases” is happening all over Texas. It is in fact the practice being encouraged by state and federal officials here and in other states, and it is the main reason why the numbers of cases is so wildly overstated.

It was good of Mr. Eagar to stumble across the truth like this, but you can be sure he dropped the subject very quickly, since this bit of information definitely does not conform to the official media/Democrat narrative.

Speaking of misleading reports, check out this one from the corrupt Democrat toadies at Politico. – Politico has a major report out detailing how the evil Orange Man in the White House is trying to put people into high positions at the Pentagon who are actually – gasp! – loyal to him and his agenda.

From the slimy report:

The White House is taking advantage of a loophole to install loyalists to President Donald Trump in acting senior roles at the Pentagon, effectively skirting the Senate confirmation process.

While the number of vacancies isn’t new — one-third of the Defense Department’s 60 Senate-confirmed positions are filled on a temporary basis — the White House in recent months has been sending over people to fill open spots, as opposed to the more traditional method of tapping people within the Pentagon.

The White House on Monday announced that it was assigning Michael Kratsios, a 33-year-old White House chief technology officer, as the head of research and engineering for the entire DoD. Kratsios, who has a bachelor’s degree in political science, is replacing Michael Griffin, a former NASA administrator with a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering.

The administration has also discussed installing Anthony Tata, the controversial Fox News regular who has been nominated to be the Pentagon’s top policy official, in a different senior DoD role on an acting basis, according to an official familiar with the discussions. The move would head off what is expected to be a bruising confirmation hearing focused on now-deleted Islamophobic tweets.

Experts and Democratic lawmakers alike decried the campaign to root out those seen as disloyal and replace them with Trump acolytes, some of whom are underqualified. They worry that a climate that values loyalty over expertise scares away the best prospects and injects politics into an organization that tries to operate above partisanship.

[End]

To be clear: This “loophole,” as the hacks at Politico describe it, is actually a longstanding feature of law that has been used by every U.S. president for time immemorial. In recent history, it has been used to greatest extent by presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Let’s all remember that those two most recent Democrat presidents didn’t even both putting such acting officials at the Pentagon and in other agencies. Instead, they made copious use of creating new “Czar” jobs that exercised the same kinds of oversight and authorities from the damn White House itself, so that they could be more easily controlled. Doing this also relieved many of these “Czars” from having to go through Pentagon background checks, which many of them would not have been able to pass.

But hey, this is just one more example of your corrupt, fake news media in action, courtesy of the Democrat activists at Politico.

That is all.

About that DNC Lawsuit…

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

…don’t expect anything to really come of it.

In fact, you should expect it to occupy most of the fake news media attention over this weekend, quickly fade from view starting on Monday, and be withdrawn entirely within a few weeks.

The DNC did not make a legal move today by filing that lawsuit, it made a political move.  Democrats were getting crushed by the back-firing of the James Comey teen angst tour, the IG’s criminal referral on Andrew McCabe, and the news that the IG had opened a new investigation into Comey and the likelihood he illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times in the memos he fed to that fake newspaper through an intermediary.

On top of all of that, President Trump’s polling numbers this week are coming in at their highest point since his inauguration, and the Democrat edge in generic congressional polling data continues to narrow.

In light of all this terrible news, the Democrats had to take some action in advance of the weekend or have all this negativity dominate the Sunday talk shows.  So, they got the nitwits who run the DNC to file this lawsuit in order to give all of their willing dupes in the fake news media something else to obsess over throughout the weekend.

Yes, the DNC is so dead broke it couldn’t pay lawyers to run with this lawsuit if it wanted to, but think about it from their perspective:  This lawsuit gives all of the Democrat press agents in the fake media an excuse to spend the entire weekend doing nothing but re-hashing all of their fantasy theories about the Trump campaign “colluding” with Russia.

So, from a political perspective, it’s really brilliant, even if it is a complete non-starter from a legal perspective.

Seriously, the DNC could never even think about letting this “lawsuit” actually make its way into a courtroom, simply because of what they’d have to surrender in the discovery process.  The central claim in the suit is the demonstrably false claim that “Russia” hacked the DNC computer server and fed thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

Ok, so, the first thing the defendants do is subpoena the DNC computer server as part of the discovery process.  The second thing that happens is that President Trump pardons Julian Assange, who would then be free to travel to the U.S. and provide his proof that the emails WikiLeaks obtained were provided not by anyone from Russia, but by murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Does anyone really think the DNC is going to voluntarily reopen that particular can of worms?  Well, ok, DNC Chairman Tom Perez is a raging Marxist moron, but he presumably has someone on staff who might point out these realities to him.

And really, that’s just for starters.  After all, the DNC fixed its own primary process in order to ensure the Pantsuit Princess would win its nomination.  It then paid millions of dollars to agents of foreign countries – including Russia – to dummy up the fake Trump Dossier, which it then used in an attempt to fix the general election.  These are all matters of public record at this point.

No, this was not a legal move today, and this is a lawsuit that will quietly go away in very short order.  This was a political move designed to give the fake hosts of the Sunday morning talk shows a shiny object to chase.  And trust me, with the possible exception of Chris Wallace at Fox News, all the fake hosts will thrilled to death to play along.

Because that’s what the fake news media does for its benefactors in the Democrat Party.

That is all.

Donna Brazile Discovers That Life As The Fredo Corleone Of Clinton World Is Hard

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Accused Hollywood pedophile actor Kevin Spacey might have been feeling friendless in recent days, but it turns out one writer who is famous for something or other – it’s been so long since he did anything of note it’s hard to remember what – is still on board the Spacey Train.  Gay Talese, who Vanity Fair describes as a “veteran journalist and author”, told the magazine on Tuesday that “I would like to talk to Kevin Spacey.  I feel so sad, and I hate that actor that ruined this guy’s career. So, OK, it happened 10 years ago … Jesus, suck it up once in a while!”  Oh, my, so many metaphors and puns one could use here in response to that particular passage, but let’s just exercise a little discretion and move along.
  • Speaking of public figures who are probably feeling friendless these days, let’s talk about Donna Brazile, who finds herself on the outs with pretty much everyone she used to consider a friendly face after becoming the first Clinton shill to break the media-enforced code of silence about Clinton wrongdoing.  Ms. Brazile, who is now basically the Fredo Corleone of the Clinton crime world, found herself on the CBS morning program on Tuesday, being interviewed by longtime fake news host Charlie Rose, the vapid Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who vacations with the Obamas, for crying out loud.  The former DNC Chairman probably hoped that her status as a lifelong Democrat party hack would get her the same sort of softball treatment this trio of fake journalists invariably toss out to their other Democrat clients, especially since she came into the interview with an obvious plan to start walking back her book’s claims that the Party’s nominating process had been rigged against Bernie Sanders.
  • Boy, was she surprised.  The fake hosts called her “bitter” and “angry” – words that if uttered towards a black woman by a conservative would have had these same fake journalists leveling charges of racism – and questioned Brazile’s honesty at several points in the interview.  Not that there’s anything bad about questioning the honesty of a shameless Clinton/Obama shill – lying for those people has been Brazile’s job for the last quarter century.  but the hostile tone of the questioning had to be startling for someone who has been used to being treated with kid gloves by fake interviewers for all these years.  Like Fredo, Brazile is finding out the hard way that, once you go against the family, there is no going back.
  • Another interesting tidbit we discovered when Brazile’s book was released on Tuesday is that she dedicated the tome to, among others, murdered DNC IT staffer Seth Rich. Now, think about this for a moment. The DNC’s official line on Seth Rich is that he was just a low-level staffer who really didn’t have any important responsibilities there. The DNC has viciously attacked anyone who has questioned the DC police line that Rich’s killing was a “robbery gone bad”, even though absolutely nothing was stolen from his person.
  • The Rich killing also took place on July 16, 2016, well before Ms. Brazile was called in to take over the DNC chairmanship on a temporary basis as the DNC Convention began later that month.  Yet she dedicates her book to him?  Did she even know him?  No wonder all the Clinton shills in the fake news media have been attacking her with a vengeance since Politico published the first excerpts from her book last Friday.
  • The reality is that Ms. Brazile, with the publication of a book that reveals vast wrongdoing by the Clintons and the DNC, finds herself in essentially the same position as actor Corey Feldman, who has recently re-started his campaign to expose Hollywood’s pedophile mafia.  Both have made the decision to go after people who have done wrong, and now find themselves faced with institutional pushback from not only former colleagues in their profession, but also a powerful news media that has spent decades protecting the very people they are attempting to expose.
  • Mr. Feldman first went after these people in 2013, but then got cold feet when he probably correctly began to fear for his safety.  He has now found renewed courage from the reaction to scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein and Spacey, and has gotten the LA police involved for the first time.  He has also raised enough money to hire some personal security, which no doubt helps.
  • Ms. Brazile is showing signs of a similar case of cold feet, as the Clinton capo regimes in politics and the fake news media form up to attack her character.  Let’s hope she doesn’t find herself the victim of a “robbery gone bad” anytime soon.  A little personal security might be in order for her as well.

Just another day in the booming private security industry America.

That is all.
