US-made missiles found at base used by Libyan 'rebels' to attack Tripoli are ours, France admits

US-made missiles found at base used by Libyan 'rebels' to attack Tripoli are ours, France admits | 10 July 2019 | France on Wednesday admitted that it is the owner of American-made anti-tank missiles found at a rebel terrorist military base in Libya, raising awkward questions about European involvement in the [Deep State-imposed] civil war. France's Army Ministry said the four Javelin missiles discovered at a base used by General Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army were intended for "self-protection of a French military unit deployed to carry out intelligence and counter-terrorism operations." Chinese-made shells with United Arab Emirates markings were also discovered.

Was Jeffrey Epstein a SPY? Alex Acosta won't deny he made non-prosecution deal with pedophile in 2007 because he was told the financier 'belonged to intelligence'

Was Jeffrey Epstein a SPY? Alex Acosta won't deny he made non-prosecution deal with pedophile in 2007 because he was told the financier 'belonged to intelligence' --Asked point-blank if he was ever told Epstein was an intelligence agent, Acosta bobbed and weaved --He wouldn't confirm or deny anything but cautioned about reporters 'going down rabbit holes' | 10 July 2019 | Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta avoided on Wednesday answering a reporter's question about whether he consented to a lenient plea deal for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in 2007 because he was instructed that the financier was a spy. According to The Daily Beast, when President Donald Trump's transition team vetted Acosta for the top Labor Department post, he was asked about the deal and replied that he had 'been told' to go easy. Acosta, in one source's telling, said he 'was told Epstein "belonged to intelligence" and to leave it alone.' In a press conference Wednesday afternoon, he dodged a pointed question about whether that version of events was true. 'Were you ever made aware at any point in your handling of this case,' a reporter asked Acosta, 'that Mr. Epstein was an intelligence asset of some sort?' Acosta neither confirmed nor denied it.

Murphy wins North Carolina GOP congressional primary runoff

Murphy wins North Carolina GOP congressional primary runoff | 09 July 2019 | A state legislator aided by hardline conservatives on Capitol Hill won the Republican nomination Tuesday for the North Carolina congressional district seat left vacant by the death of Rep. Walter Jones Jr. Voters in the 3rd District GOP primary runoff chose state Rep. Greg Murphy of Greenville over Kinston pediatrician Joan Perry, a first-time candidate...[With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Murphy had won 60 percent to Perry's 40 percent.] They were the top vote-getters in the 17-candidate party primary in April, with Murphy finishing first but falling short of the threshold to avoid a runoff. Murphy's victory is a win for the House Freedom Caucus and for its chairman, Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, a close ally of Trump in Congress.

Kids in cages: House Dems scrub tweet with photo of Obama-era detention center used to attack Trump

Kids in cages: House Dems scrub tweet with photo of Obama-era detention center used to attack Trump | 10 July 2019 | House Democrats have erased a tweet promoting a hearing on the effects of President Trump's border policies on children after finding out they used a photo depicting a migrant detention center under President Obama's watch. The tweet was posted in anticipation of a hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, dubbed 'Kids in Cages: Inhumane Treatment at the Border,' and included a dramatic photo backdrop displaying the dismal conditions at US migrant detention facilities -- but it was soon deleted after conservative critics pointed out the origins of the image. The congressional Democrats then had another go at it, but their alternative photo choice, much to the lawmakers' immediate embarrassment, was also taken while President Obama was still in office. The second tweet was deleted in record time and replaced with nothing, as apparently the many thousands of up-to-date photos of the detention centers fail to convey the same sense of horror as the Obama-era images.

Matt Gaetz, typically a staunch supporter of President Trump, on Tuesday defended his bipartisan plan that would block the president from using military force against Iran without congressional approval. "We're against forever wars and we don't think that any president should be able to keep the United States in war or any type of conflict beyond 60 days," Gaetz, a Republican, told Fox News on Tuesday. The Florida lawmaker teamed up with Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., to craft an amendment that would prevent federal funds from being used for any military force against Iran without congressional approval.

Michael Flynn's New Brief Shines Sunlight on Prosecutor's Tactics

Michael Flynn's New Brief Shines Sunlight on Prosecutor's Tactics | 09 July 2019 | The defense team for former National Security Advisor Michael T. Flynn has submitted a filing to the Eastern District of Virginia, fighting the government's most recent proposal to ask the court to deem Flynn a "co-conspirator" in the case against his former partner. The designation is solely for the purpose of obtaining the admission of one document the government itself claims is already admissible under a different rule, according to a brief filed by Flynn's defense team. The substantial briefing was filed in just the last few days in the case the government filed against Bijan Rafiekian, Flynn's former consulting firm partner. It was only unsealed Tuesday...The evidence collected by Flynn's current defense Attorney Sidney Powell, who recently replaced Flynn’s former defense attorney Robert Kelner, sheds new light on the extraordinary tactics used to target and retaliate against Flynn, according to the filing.

San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer announces 2020 presidential run

San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer announces 2020 presidential run | 09 July 2019 | Billionaire activistTom Steyer is joining the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, reversing course after deciding earlier this year that he would forgo a run. Steyer made the announcement Tuesday, casting himself as an outsider who will oppose what he calls "the hostile corporate takeover of our democracy [of which he's a part]." The 62-year-old from California is one of the most visible and deep-pocketed liberals advocating for President Donald Trump's impeachment. He surprised many Democrats in January when he declared he would focus entirely on the impeachment effort instead of seeking the White House. [WikiLeaks emails reveal Tom Steyer discussing "walnut sauce topping" on his "pizza" with John Podesta. Steyer is running for president so that he can claim he's a victim of Trump supporters' persecutions, when he goes down with the other "elite" child molesters and sex traffickers.]

Bolton and Netanyahu killed 2005 Iran talks, 'lured' Trump into shredding 2015 deal - Iranian FM | 09 July 2019 | National Security Advisor John Bolton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu scuppered a 2005 nuclear agreement between Iran and the west, and did the same with President Trump, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said. "Bolton & Netanyahu killed Paris agreement between E3 & Iran in '05 by insisting on zero enrichment," Zarif tweeted on Tuesday. "Result? Iran increased its enrichment 100 fold by 2012." Referring to Bolton and Netanyahu as the "B Team," Zarif then said that "they've lured Donald Trump into killing JCPOA w/the same delusion," the JCPOA being the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or Iran Nuclear Deal.

Deep State wins again: unelected federal judge rules against Trump on drug pricing disclosures

Deep State wins again: unelected federal judge rules against Trump on drug pricing disclosures | 08 July 2019 | A federal judge on Monday sided with a coalition of drug companies and blocked the Trump administration from implementing a policy that would require prescription drug manufacturers to disclose list prices in TV ads.

The rule was scheduled to take effect Tuesday. U.S. District Court Judge [corporatist dirt-bag] Amit P. Mehta in Washington, D.C., agreed with the drug companies that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) does not have the authority to compel drug companies to disclose prices...Under the rule, which was announced by HHS Secretary Alex Azar in May, drug manufacturers would have to state the list price of a 30-day supply of any drug that is covered through Medicare and Medicaid and costs at least $35 a month.

Rep. Peter King: 'Severe, serious abuses' by FBI, CIA in Russia probe 'going to come out' | 07 July 2019 | Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he is "confident" that when Attorney General Bill Barr concludes his investigation of the origins of the investigation of President Trump's 2016 campaign, the American people will learn that the FBI and CIA under the Obama administration engaged in foul play. President Trump and his supporters have questioned how the investigation started in the first place, accusing the FBI of carrying it out under false pretenses. King is among those leveling such allegations. "There was no legal basis at all for them to begin the investigation of his campaign," King said in a Friday interview with New York radio host John Catsimatidis, "and the way they carried it forward and the way information was leaked, the improper applications they filed in the FISA court to get surveillance, all of this is going to come out."

Mr. Trump has downplayed the cost of the event, saying on Twitter he thinks he's giving Americans a good deal.
