Florida Senate permanently removes Scott Israel as Broward sheriff | 23 Oct 2019 | After hours of debate...the Florida Senate voted Wednesday to permanently remove suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.

All five Broward senators voted for reinstatement, despite the wishes of Parkland parents...Wednesday's outcome was seen as likely, especially after a vote Monday in the Senate Rules Committee, which recommended removal after 10-hour hearing.

GOP lawmaker shares audio of phone call he made from highly classified SCIF room

GOP lawmaker shares audio of phone call he made from highly classified SCIF room | 23 Oct 2019 | Rep. Alex Mooney (R. W.Va.) shared audio of a phone call he made from inside a secure room at the Capitol where Democrats were attempting to interview a witness as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The interview was delayed for hours after a group of conservative Republican lawmakers, including Mooney, stormed into the room to protest what they say has been an unfair impeachment process. During his call from the SCIF [sensitive compartmented information facility], the West Virginia lawmaker said he and other Republicans stormed the closed-door hearing because House Democrats "refuse to have a hearing in a transparent way for the people of West Virginia's 2nd Congressional District can be aware of what's going on." "I represent over 600,000 people in West Virginia who are not given a right to know what's even being said in these hearings. It is a brazenly attempt for no reason to impeach the president of the United States," he continued.

Republicans storm closed-door hearing to protest impeachment inquiry | 23 Oct 2019 | House Republicans stormed a closed-door hearing Wednesday to protest Democrats' impeachment inquiry process, breaking up the deposition of a top Defense Department official who was testifying about President Trump's dealings with Ukraine. Dozens of Republicans, including some members of leadership like House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), barged into the secure hearing room in the Capitol basement where Laura Cooper, the deputy assistant secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, was set to provide private testimony. "The fact that Adam Schiff won't even let the press in -- you can't even go in and see what's going on in that room," Scalise told reporters outside the hearing room. "Voting members of Congress are being denied access from being able to see what's happening behind these closed doors, where they're trying to impeach the president of the United States with a one-sided set of rules, they call the witnesses."

Harvard student newspaper facing backlash for requesting comment from ICE

Harvard student newspaper facing backlash for requesting comment from ICE | 23 Oct 2019 | The Harvard Crimson, the university's student-run newspaper, is facing a campus backlash after requesting comment from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for an article on a campus protest against the agency. Eleven student groups, including the Harvard College Democrats, signed a petition accusing the Harvard Crimson of showing cultural insensitivity for even contacting the government agency. On Sept. 12, students advocating for the abolition of ICE assembled for a rally organized by student group Act on a Dream in Harvard Yard. After the protest concluded, the paper reached out to an ICE spokesperson to ask for a statement in response to the protest for an upcoming story. Soon after, Act on a Dream published a petition, which currently has over 650 signatures, demanding The Crimson change its policies so that none of its reporters ever make contact with ICE again and apologize for the "harm [it] inflicted on the undocumented community."

White House gives $4.5 million 'White Helmets' al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat Al-Nusra operating in Syria

White House gives $4.5 million 'White Helmets' al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat Al-Nusra operating in Syria | 22 Oct 2019 | While US President Donald Trump may be serious about pulling troops out of Syria, that doesn't mean Washington intends to stop meddling there, as evidenced by taxpayer dollars he just sent to the fake rescue [terrorist] group "White Helmets." The White House announced a $4.5 million donation to the group on Tuesday, citing the "important and highly valued" work the group has done...In reality...the outfit itself is but an extension of jihadist militants such as the al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat Al-Nusra, recently "rebranded" as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). Actual Syrians liberated from jihadist sieges and occupation have repeatedly testified that the "rescuers" are nothing of the sort -- including the family of the famous "Aleppo Boy" Omran Daqneesh. Last December, the Russian mission to the UN presented the results of its months-long investigation into the group, citing photos, documents and witness testimonies to accuse the White Helmets of organ harvesting, ties to terrorist groups, staged attacks and faked rescues.

Report: Brennan and Clapper to Be Interviewed as Part of Investigation Into Russia Probe | 21 Oct 2019 | U.S. Attorney John Durham intends to interview former CIA Director [and unindicted 9/11 co-conspirator] John Brennan as part of his investigation into U.S. intelligence agencies' activities in the Trump-Russia probe, according to NBC News.

The interviews, should they occur, would signal that Durham is expanding his investigation.

Where is the FISA report? Anticipation builds as DOJ watchdog still hasn't released review

Where is the FISA report? Anticipation builds as DOJ watchdog still hasn't released review | 21 Oct 2019 | For weeks, it's been speculated the long-awaited review of alleged surveillance abuses by the Department of Justice and the FBI during the investigation into Russia’s purported meddling in the 2016 presidential election could drop any day. It's still not here. For more than a year and a half, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been investigating alleged misconduct related to the FISA warrants delivered by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). The Justice Department and FBI obtained warrants in 2016 to surveil Trump adviser Carter Page. It is unclear, at this point, if Page was the only Trump official that the DOJ obtained a FISA warrant against.

Durham's probe into possible FBI misconduct expanded based on new evidence, sources say

Durham's probe into possible FBI misconduct expanded based on new evidence, sources say | 22 Oct 2019 | U.S. Attorney John Durham's investigation into the origins of the FBI's 2016 Russia probe has expanded based on new evidence uncovered during a recent trip to Rome with Attorney General Bill Barr, sources told Fox News on Tuesday. The sources said Durham was "very interested" to question former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan, an anti-Trump critic who recently dismissed the idea. The two Obama administration officials were at the helm when the unverified and largely discredited Steele dossier, written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, was used to justify a secret surveillance warrant against former Trump adviser Carter Page.

CNN: Biden likened Clinton impeachment to 'partisan lynching' in 1998

CNN: Biden likened Clinton impeachment to 'partisan lynching' in 1998 | 22 Oct 2019 | White House hopeful Joe Biden has condemned President Trump for likening the impeachment inquiry to a "lynching," though he made a similar comparison when describing the impeachment investigation against former President Bill Clinton. "Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense," then-Sen. Biden (D-Del.) said in a 1998 interview with CNN, which was unearthed by CNN's KFile.

Transgender Cyclist Who Set Women's World Record Wouldn't Have Qualified For Men's Championship

Transgender Cyclist Who Set Women's World Record Wouldn't Have Qualified For Men's Championship | 21 Oct 2019 | Rachel McKinnon is a professional Canadian cyclist who was born a biological male, but now identifies as a female. According to Union Cyclist Internationale Masters Track Championship rules, McKinnon therefore is allowed to compete against women instead of against men. McKinnon has previously claimed that being born a male but racing against women is not only fair, but a human right for transgender individuals. McKinnon won a second Women's Sprint World Championship over the weekend, but the Canadian's qualifying time for this competition would not have even been fast enough to qualify for the men's championship.

'I can't think properly:' Assange disoriented as court rejects delay for extradition proceedings

'I can't think properly:' Assange disoriented as court rejects delay for extradition proceedings | 21 Oct 2019 | With his supporters rallying outside the court building, Julian Assange showed signs of exhaustion and psychological torment as his lawyer made a bid to delay US extradition proceedings -- but the London court ruled against him. Cleanly shaven and dressed in a navy suit, the WikiLeaks co-founder appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday to seek the postponement of an extradition hearing scheduled for February -- but the impact of six months behind bars at London's maximum security Belmarsh Prison have clearly taken a toll. Reports from inside the court suggest that Assange, who shot to international prominence for revealing US war crimes, even struggled to say his own name and date of birth. He reportedly held back tears as he told the court that he couldn't "think properly." His lawyer argued that the US government had attempted to kidnap and cause harm to Assange, and said he would need more time to compile evidence for the case.

Trump defends Gabbard from Clinton's attacks: 'These people are sick' | 21 Oct 2019 | President Trump on Monday assailed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for suggesting Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is favored by Russia in the 2020 White House race. "Hillary Clinton, I don't know if you've heard of her, she's the one accusing everybody of being a Russian agent. Anybody that is opposed to her is a Russian agent," Trump told reporters during a Cabinet meeting. "That's a scam that was pretty much put down. I don't know Tulsi, but she's not a Russian agent," Trump continued. "I don't know Jill Stein. I know she''s an environmentalist...and probably a good woman...These people are sick. There's something wrong with them," Trump said.

Beto O'Rourke to MSNBC: Trump's rhetoric 'perhaps inspired by Goebbels'

Beto O'Rourke to MSNBC: Trump's rhetoric 'perhaps inspired by Goebbels' | 20 Oct 2019 | President Trump's dishonest political rhetoric may have been inspired by Adolf Hitler's notorious propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke said in a bold claim during a Sunday TV interview. O'Rourke made the remarks on MSNBC's "PoliticsNation." "President Trump, perhaps inspired by Goebbels and the propagandists of the Third Reich, seems to employ this tactic that the bigger the lie, the more obscene the injustice, the more dizzying the pace of this bizarre behavior, the less likely we are to be able to do something about it," he said.

Ocasio-Cortez throws support to Sanders at Queens rally | 19 Oct 2019 | Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) threw her support behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Saturday as the Democratic presidential hopeful made his return to the campaign trail following a heart attack earlier this month.

Gabbard hits back at 'queen of warmongers' Clinton

Gabbard hits back at 'queen of warmongers' Clinton | 18 Oct 2019 | Presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) did not hold back Friday when responding to 2016 nominee Hilary Clinton's suggestion that she is the "favorite of the Russians" for 2020, excoriating the former secretary of State as "the queen of warmongers" and "personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party." ...Through a series of tweets, Gabbard went right at Clinton, calling her the "embodiment of corruption" among the Democratic Party establishment. "From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation," Gabbard said. "We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know -- it was always you," she added.

Hillary Clinton says Tulsi Gabbard is a 'Russian asset' groomed to ensure Trump re-election

Hillary Clinton says Tulsi Gabbard is a 'Russian asset' groomed to ensure Trump re-election | 18 Oct 2019 | Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win re-election. The former Secretary of State pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama's campaign manager in 2008...Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates like Jill Stein of the Green Party played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are also going to do third party again," Clinton said. "I'm not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third party candidate," Clinton said, referring to Gabbard without mentioning the Hawaii representative by name. "She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and ways of supporting her so far. That's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset."

Kurdish Forces Inexplicably Freed Hundreds of ISIS Terrorists in Syria Throughout 2017

Flashback: Kurdish Forces Inexplicably Freed Hundreds of ISIS Terrorists in Syria Throughout 2017 | 13 Oct 2019 | Ever since President Donald Trump made the announcement that he was removing troops from Northern Syria earlier this week, proponents of permanent military occupation of the Middle East in the GOP have been outraged. They have claimed we must stay in the region to help our allies, the Kurds. "President Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria is having sickening and predictable consequences," said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Deep State-WY), whose father [and Grade 'A' sociopath] was the architect of the disastrous Iraq War...Reuters reported on the startling development at the time: A civil council expected to rule Raqqa once Islamic State is dislodged from the Syrian city pardoned 83 of the jihadist group's low-ranking militants on Saturday, a goodwill gesture designed to promote stability...Far from an isolated incident, the Kurdish-led SDF also allowed hundreds of ISIS fighters to escape from Raqqa along with their families later that year.

Japan imported Ebola, Marburg virus, and Lassa virus ahead of the 2020 Olympics

Japan imported Ebola, Marburg virus, and Lassa virus ahead of the 2020 Olympics --The deadly virus is one of five that have been brought to a 'secure laboratory.' | 15 Oct 2019 | Japan is preparing for tens of thousands of international tourists to descend on Tokyo for the Olympic Games next year -- and that includes being ready for unwanted biological visitors. Last month, Japan imported Ebola and four other dangerous viruses in preparation for a possible outbreak at the event. The Japanese health ministry says researchers will use the samples, which include Marburg virus, Lassa virus, and the viruses that cause South American haemorrhagic fever and Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever, to validate tests under development. The viruses' arrival represents the first time that pathogens rated biosafety-level-4 (BSL-4) -- the most dangerous rating -- have been allowed to enter the Japanese National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIID), the only facility in the country operating at that level. [Right, because the safety procedures at the Fukushima nuclear plant have worked so well...]

Moments earlier, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that Ankara had agreed to a 120-hour ceasefire, and to stop its 'Operation Peace Spring' entirely if the US-allied Kurdish militias completed their withdrawal beyond a 20-kilometer "safe zone" along the Turkey-Syria border.
