Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found in his December 2019 report that Clinesmith had altered a CIA email cited in the fourth application to the FISA court to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page in 2017.

Israel, UAE to normalize relations in shift in Mideast politics, West Bank annexation on hold

Israel, UAE to normalize relations in shift in Mideast politics, West Bank annexation on hold | 13 Aug 2020 | Israel and the United Arab Emirates announced on Thursday that they will normalise diplomatic ties and forge a broad new relationship, a move that reshapes the order of Middle East politics from the Palestinian issue to Iran. Under the accord, which U.S. President Donald Trump helped broker, Israel has agreed to suspend its planned annexation of areas of the occupied West Bank. The agreement also firms up opposition to regional power Iran, which the UAE, Israel and the United States view as the main threat in the conflict-riven Middle East. Israel had signed peace agreements with Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. But the UAE, along with most other Arab nations, did not recognise Israel and had no formal diplomatic or economic relations with it until now. The UAE becomes the first Gulf Arab country to reach such a deal with the Jewish state. The agreement was the product of lengthy discussions between Israel, the UAE and the United States that accelerated recently, White House officials said.

She served her final two years as Seattle's top cop... President Trump addressed Best's resignation during a press briefing from the White House on Tuesday.

He said the federal government would offer all available support to quell violence in cities that have voted to cut police budgets.

As Kamala Harris Joins Biden Ticket, Wall Street Sighs in Relief

As Kamala Harris Joins Biden Ticket, Wall Street Sighs in Relief --Wall Street's warm welcome to Joe Biden's running mate reflects a belief that tougher financial regulation isn't a top priority | 12 Aug 2020 | When Joe Biden announced California Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential pick, he pointed to her tough-on-banks record. Much of Wall Street cheered anyway... Ms. Harris proved adept at courting wealthy donors in the Hamptons and Martha's Vineyard while speaking credibly to middle-class concerns [aka, a corporate socialist - just like Obama]. She sought input--and money--from CEOs across industries for her campaign in listening sessions, and touted her record supporting small-business owners at an event in Iowa sponsored by Goldman Sachs Group Inc., the Wall Street powerhouse... In 2011, she pulled out of a national mortgage settlement with big banks and pursued a separate, costly settlement for California, a decision that catapulted her political career. But some officials involved in the negotiations have said her efforts to hold banks accountable amounted more to style--seen at times as impeding a resolution--than substance.

Penn. Health Secretary Levine: DOH will not release 'granular data' to prove restaurants, bars cause case increase | 24 July 2020 | Restaurants and bars are trying to get a better explanation from the Pennsylvania Department of Health on why more restrictions were handed down last week. There have been calls for the state to prove restaurants and bars were the reason for the uptick in cases.Health Secretary Doctor Rachel Levine says they have specific data -- but aren't going to release it. But, Levine says we're seeing an increase in cases in young adults -- and that they have been going out to the bars and restaurants since the reopening. [Levine is the official who murdered thousands of senior citizens in Pennsylvania nursing homes -- after she moved her own mother out of a personal care home. It's amazing she's still in office -- instead of a jail cell.]

Kamala Harris of California to be the vice-presidential nominee for the Democratic party. "He was, like, 'It's Kamala,'" Coates said. "I literally started screaming on the phone," said Coates, a pediatric dentist living in Arlington, Va. "And then tears started welling up. In a way it's sort of validation, we as Black women, those of us who support the Democratic Party, we've been such a back bone, and for her to be tapped it's, like, someone is finally seeing us for the value that we bring." Harris's story resonated with Coates in other ways too. Like Coates, who graduated from Meharry Medical College's School of Dentistry, Harris is an alumnae of a Historically Black College; she graduated from Howard University in 1986.

Democratic Party sets rules for criticizing Biden's VP pick Kamala Harris

Democratic Party sets rules for criticizing Biden's VP pick Kamala Harris --Hillary Clinton and Valerie Jarrett operatives sign a missive that warns what media message must be --Opinion by Tammy Bruce | 11 Aug 2020 | Media organizations have just been warned by the Democratic Party machine that they better be very, very careful with how they cover Joe Biden’s vice presidential choice -- just revealed to be Kamala Harris. Any criticism of the expected woman will be considered racist and sexist, we are told. Oh, they wrap up that threat in a word salad, but that's the bottom line: There should be second and even third thoughts about any criticism of Mr. Biden's VP pick. An actual memo went out from an ad hoc group of Democratic operatives (pretending to be advocates for women) to media organizations with orders on how to proceed with their coverage. The fact that they expected this partisan missive to be accepted and adhered to by media entities tells you all you need to know about the problem with today's legacy media.

Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as his running mate. On Tuesday, Biden announced that Harris would be his vice president... Left-leaning journalist Michael Tracey called Biden's selection a "nightmarishly bad pick in every way." "Kamala's presidential campaign was a total humiliating disaster. One of the worst of all time, considering the amount of unearned hype she received. Did everybody miss that, or what?" Tracey asked.

Madness in Melbourne

Madness in Melbourne --1984 dystopian language: billboards everywhere saying 'Staying apart keeps us together.' Have they gone mad? | 04 Aug 2020 |

  • Can't go more than 3 miles from your home.
  • Weddings are illegal.
  • No gatherings of any size.
  • Army is on the streets fining/arresting people.
  • "Since March 21, a total of 193,740 spot checks have been conducted by police across Victoria."

...Now there are big worries in Melbourne. The Premier has imposed a vicious police state without precedent in this country's history. His name is Dan Andrews (a sweet-sounding name that masks the tyrant he has become), and he tweets out pictures of empty streets to brag about what he has achieved in the name of suppressing a virus... This is lockdown ideology at work. It is tyranny without limit, at the expense of all human dignity, decency, and rights. The politicians make a desert and call it health. And yet, meanwhile, in Australia since March, there have been six times as many deaths from suicide than from Covid-19. Like everywhere else on the planet, Melbourne will have to reach herd immunity from C-19 at some point. Those who deny that are risking not only liberty and health but civilization itself. Perhaps the other states in Australia will observe the destruction in Victoria and learn to take another path when the virus first arrives in their territory, as it surely will. Lockdowns are not science; they are brutality.

Seattle City Council approves plan to defund police department, slashes jobs and salaries

Seattle City Council approves plan to defund police department, slashes jobs and salaries | 10 Aug 2020 | The Seattle City Council voted Monday to move forward with a controversial proposal that would begin the process of defunding the police department.

It was also cut the police department's $400 million budget by about $3 million, according to KOMO.

Major U.S. Health Insurers Report Big Profits, Benefiting From the Pandemic

Major U.S. Health Insurers Report Big Profits, Benefiting From the Pandemic | 05 Aug 2020 | The nation's leading health insurers are experiencing an embarrassment of profits. Some of the largest companies, including Anthem, Humana and UnitedHealth Group, are reporting second-quarter earnings that are double what they were a year ago. And while insurance profits are capped under the Affordable Care Act, with the requirement that consumers should benefit from such excesses in the form of rebates, no one should expect an immediate windfall. But the amounts that insurers are retaining have caught the attention of the Trump administration. The Health and Human Services Department advised companies to consider speeding up rebates, and on Tuesday suggested that they reduce premiums to help consumers through the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.

Witnesses Convinced that Cuomo Is Intentionally Hiding Actual Number of Nursing Home Deaths

Witnesses Convinced that Cuomo Is Intentionally Hiding Actual Number of Nursing Home Deaths | 05 Aug 2020 | The New York State Assembly and Senate gave New York Health Commissioner [Murderer] Howard Zucker plenty of chances to tell them the number of nursing home residents who have died from COVID, but all he could muster was that he'd "get back" to them... As Democrat James Skoufis noted, even California has managed to share that statistic. He said it "perplexes" him that Zucker couldn't be just as forthcoming. The catalyst for Monday's hearing was Gov. Andrew Cuomo's nursing home mandate back on March 25 that ordered facilities to accept COVID patients who had been discharged from hospitals. Families who have lost someone in a New York nursing home the past few months have no doubt in their mind that Cuomo's dangerous policy put their loved ones in the grave...Zucker didn't stick around to hear testimony from folks who were directly affected by the administration's order. If he had stayed, he would have heard some horrifying tales.
