How the DNC is unfairly tilting the field against Tulsi Gabbard

Here's how the 'Deep State DNC' is ensuring that no antiwar voices are heard: How the DNC is unfairly tilting the field against Tulsi Gabbard | 27 Aug 2019 | (Opinion) The most recent issue is the DNC’s qualification criteria for the third Democratic primary debate set for September. The DNC has understandably sought to cut down on the number of candidates granted a place on the debate stage, and they've done so by putting in place more stringent qualification requirements. Now, candidates must show four DNC-approved polls placing them at 2% or higher, and they must also receive 130,000 unique donations...[The] most clearly disadvantaged by DNC malpractice is Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Here's where the bias comes in: The decision as to which polls are "DNC-approved" and which are not. Several of these campaigns have met the polling threshold in more than four reputable polls, just not the ones approved by the DNC, whose criteria for poll approval are unknown and opaque.

Uh-oh: Silicon Valley is building a Chinese-style social credit system

Uh-oh: Silicon Valley is building a Chinese-style social credit system --In China, scoring citizens' behavior is official government policy. U.S. companies are increasingly doing something similar, outside the law. | 26 Aug 2019 | Have you heard about China's social credit system? It's a technology-enabled, surveillance-based nationwide program designed to nudge citizens toward better behavior. The ultimate goal is to "allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step," according to the Chinese government...Many Westerners are disturbed by what they read about China's social credit system. But such systems, it turns out, are not unique to China. A parallel system is developing in the United States, in part as the result of Silicon Valley and technology-industry user policies, and in part by surveillance of social media activity by private companies.

New poll shows Biden falling badly, three-way tie for Democratic lead

New poll shows Biden falling badly, three-way tie for Democratic lead | 26 Aug 2019 | Joe Biden's support in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination is slipping, according to a new survey from Monmouth University Poll that shows the former vice president dropping below 20 percent. The survey showed Biden with support from 19 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters nationally, a double-digit decline from Monmouth's most recent poll in June when he led the pack with 32 percent. Now, the dynamics have changed, according to the Monmouth survey. Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the primary field's top progressive candidates, are each at 20 percent, putting them in a statistical tie with Biden and indicating a tightening three-way race.

Over 1,600 new blazes have added fuel to the fire in the last three days, lighting up the night sky across the southern parts of the world's largest forest basin and prompting anti-government protests as well as an international outcry. The wildfires have left half of Brazil covered in smoke and darkness is believed to be the most intense blaze to grip the jungle in nearly a decade. President Jair Bolsonaro has sent Brazilian troops backed by military aircraft on Saturday prepared to deploy in the Amazon to fight fires that have swept the region.

Feds fear EMP- triggered meltdown of nuclear power plants, radiation deaths

Feds fear EMP- triggered meltdown of nuclear power plants, radiation deaths | 23 Aug 2019 | The federal government's new focus on preventing disaster in a natural or terrorist electromagnetic pulse attack is drawing attention to a lack of testing and preparation at the nation's nuclear power plants, where a resulting meltdown could cause radiation deaths. Tucked into the back of a new report from the Electromagnetic Defense Task Force compiled to highlight the EMP threat to U.S. infrastructure and military installations, the nation's nuclear regulators [sic] admitted that the electric generating plants are not prepared for an attack. What's more, they don't know how deadly an attack would be or how far the radioactive "plume" from a meltdown would extend and suggested instead that deaths would first come from an inability to find food and clean water.

Her event Sunday had to move locations from the WaMu Theater, with a capacity of 7,000, to the International Fountain at Seattle Center in order to accommodate more people.

Biden mistakes New Hampshire for Vermont during campaign stop

Biden mistakes New Hampshire for Vermont during campaign stop | 24 Aug 2019 | Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly praised the state of Vermont Saturday when asked about his impression of Keene, New Hampshire, by reporters during a press gaggle.

More Russiagate unraveling? Ex-CEO says FBI instructed him to have relationship with Russian gun activist

More Russiagate unraveling? Ex-CEO says FBI instructed him to have relationship with Russian gun activist | 23 Aug 2019 | Former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne has told media that he was ordered by the FBI to initiate a romantic relationship with imprisoned Russian gun activist Maria Butina, seemingly confirming claims made by her lawyer. Byrne, who resigned from the online retail company on Thursday, explained to CNN's Chris Cuomo that he had been asked by the FBI - on the orders of then-director James Comey - to "rekindle a romantic relationship" with Butina. Taken aback by the claim, Cuomo interjected: "You believe that Jim Comey knew that you were being asked to do these things in the name of the United States government?" Byrne responded in the affirmative, and even said that he was "specifically told" that the request came directly from Comey, who later played a central role in advancing the now-debunked theory that Donald Trump's presidential campaign had "colluded" with the Kremlin.

Gabbard hits DNC over poll criteria for debates

Gabbard hits DNC over poll criteria for debates | 23 Aug 2019 | Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) hit the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over its polling criteria for upcoming primary debates, asking it to "ensure transparency and fairness" in selecting the qualifying surveys. The campaign noted that Gabbard has exceeded 2 percent support in 26 national and early state polls but said only two of those are on DNC's "certified" list, even as "many of the uncertified polls, including those conducted by highly reputable organizations such as The Economist and the Boston Globe, are ranked by Real Clear Politics and FiveThirtyEight as more accurate than some DNC 'certified' polls." [The Deep State dirt-bags running the DNC don't want an antiwar voice on the platform.]

Isn't that how he f--king lost his dumbass eye, because he got his f--king eye hole f--ked, by a brave soldier?" Crenshaw had recently appeared on "The Joe Rogan Experience," to which Piker was responding with his tirade. Crenshaw was a Navy SEAL who served three tours in Afghanistan, and lost his right eye in an IED explosion.

Heavily populated counties like Wake, Cumberland and Union counties are among training sites, according to the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg.

DHS moves to end limits on detention of migrant families, close 'loophole'

DHS moves to end limits on detention of migrant families, close 'loophole' | 21 Aug 2019 | The Trump administration announced Wednesday it would move to scrap a major court agreement in order to allow for migrant families to be detained longer as their cases are being considered, instead of having to release them after 20 days. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, in a press conference detailing the decision, claimed that the long-standing court order known as the Flores agreement has incentivized illegal immigration and represents a "loophole" in the immigration system. That agreement prohibited children from being kept in detention for more than 20 days. As a result, officials were releasing entire families to keep them from being separated...

Watchdog alerts Trump that border agency violated DNA collection law for years, letting violent criminals walk free

Watchdog alerts Trump that border agency violated DNA collection law for years, letting violent criminals walk free | 21 Aug 2019 | A top government watchdog on Wednesday alerted President Trump and Congress that Customs and Border Protection (CBP), through a "disturbing" pattern of misconduct, has endangered the public for nearly a decade by failing to comply with a federal law requiring that the agency collect DNA samples from detained migrants. In a scathing letter to Trump, exclusively obtained by Fox News, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) said CBP's "noncompliance with the law has allowed subjects subsequently accused of violent crimes, including homicide and sexual assault, to elude detection even when detained multiple times by CBP or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)."

Trump says administration looking 'seriously' at ending birthright citizenship

Trump says administration looking 'seriously' at ending birthright citizenship | 21 Aug 2019 | President Trump on Wednesday said his administration is once again seriously considering an executive order to end birthright citizenship months after several lawmakers cast doubt on his ability to take such action.

"Birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land -- walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations, the baby's now a U.S. citizen." "We are looking at birthright citizenship very seriously," he added. "It's, frankly, ridiculous."

Gabbard Victimized by DNC's Dubious Debate Criteria

Deep State DNC scum-bags trying to keep Tulsi out of debates, because she wants to end their perpetual wars: Gabbard Victimized by DNC's Dubious Debate Criteria | 21 Aug 2019 | Tulsi Gabbard is on the verge of being excluded from the next DemocRATic presidential debate on the basis of criteria that appear increasingly absurd. Take, for instance, her poll standing in New Hampshire, which currently places Gabbard at 3.3% support, according to the RealClearPolitics average as of Aug. 20. One might suspect that such a figure would merit inclusion in the upcoming debates -- especially considering she's ahead of several candidates who have already been granted entry, including Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O'Rourke, and Andrew Yang. But the Democratic National Committee has decreed that the polls constituting this average are not sufficiently "qualifying." ...To recap: Gabbard has polled at 2% or more in two polls sponsored by the two largest newspapers in two early primary states, but the DNC -- through its mysteriously incoherent selection process -- has determined that these surveys do not count toward her debate eligibility.

10 declassified Russia collusion revelations that could rock Washington this fall | 20 Aug 2019 | (Opinion) Behind the scenes, some major events were set in motion last autumn that could soon change the tenor in Washington, at least as it relates to the debunked Russia collusion narrative that distracted America for nearly three years...The foot-dragging inside the intelligence community (IC) that occurred under now-departed DNI Dan Coats and his deputy, Sue Gordon, could halt abruptly. That's particularly true if Trump appoints a new IC sheriff, such as former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the current ambassador to the Netherlands, or longtime national security expert Fred Fleitz.
