Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden has his own ties to banks and credit-card companies, dating back to his years in the Senate, while Sen.

"However, only citizens are eligible to vote. And Texas law currently does not require verification of a voter's statement that they are a citizen."

'It's none of our business!' Ron Paul denounces American 'hypocrisy' in backing Venezuelan coup | 25 Jan  2019 | Supporting a coup in Venezuela in the name of promoting democracy is rather ironic, former Republican Congressman Ron Paul told RT, pointing out the glaring hypocrisy of enforcing "American values" at gunpoint. The Ron Paul Institute founder asked: "Where do we get the moral authority to be the decider?" Paul added, "I think it’s rather ironic for our government to say they want to take care of Venezuela...by having a coup and threatening them with military violence because they're not democratic enough!" "Have a look at US foreign policy of the last 10 years!" Paul implored, begging the US to at least learn from the lessons of the 'war on terror'.

Roger Stone vows to fight charges in Mueller probe, calls indictment 'politically motivated' | 25 Jan 2018 | Former Trump adviser Roger Stone vowed during a dramatic press conference outside a federal courthouse in Florida on Friday afternoon to fight the charges of witness tampering, obstruction and false statements brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, calling the charges "politically motivated" while insisting he would not turn against President Trump. The indictment unsealed Friday does not charge Stone with conspiring with WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website that published the emails, or with the Russian officers Mueller says hacked them.

A spokesman for Mueller’s office said Stone, 66, was arrested in Fort Lauderdale on Friday morning after being indicted by a federal grand jury a day earlier.

Stone's alleged crimes stem from his contacts with WikiLeaks, which during the 2016 race released stolen e-mails from the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. According to a January 24 indictment unsealed after his arrest Friday, Stone appeared to act as a kind of liaison between "Organization 1"--widely understood to be WikiLeaks--and the Trump campaign, discussing with senior officials "information [WikiLeaks] might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign."

"The massive amount of aliens who unlawfully enter the United States each day is a direct threat to the safety and security of our nation and constitutes a national emergency," a draft of a presidential proclamation reads.

All CLGers please read, regarding Google's censorship of this newsletter

The following note appeared at the top of Thursday's CLG Newsletter re-send.
 
Dear CLG Readers,
 
Here is a 'self-censored' resend of today's (24 January 2019) CLG Newsletter, as the Deep State nut-jobs running Google relegated the original edition to the sp*m bin. It is interesting to note that I checked CLG's mail server IP via MxToolbox, and there is currently NO blacklisting of that IP. Ergo, it is GOOGLE, on its OWN, deciding that YOU should not receive this newsletter. Note: I had to remove several stories in this 'revised' edition, in order to try to circumvent Google's content sentinels.
 
It is manifest to me -- and should be by now to any thinking person -- that it is time to take down these 'big tech tyrants.' I am really sick of spending over TWENTY HOURS compiling the stories for a newsletter, only to have globalist sacks of garbage decide that YOU shouldn't be able to read 'certain material.' If you want the unexpurgated version, please write lori at legitgov.org, and I will forward it to you.
 
Thank you. Apologies if the original reached you through a non-Google service, and that this is a double. --Lori Price, Editor

Greenpeace slams Japan's plan to dump radioactive Fukushima water into the ocean

Greenpeace slams Japan's plan to dump radioactive Fukushima water into the ocean | 22 Jan 2019 | Greenpeace has slammed a plan by the Japanese government and an electric utility company to release into the ocean highly radioactive water from the devastated Fukushima Daiichi power plant, saying in a new report the decision was "driven by short-term cost-cutting". Released on Tuesday, the Greenpeace study condemns the decision taken after the disaster to not develop technology that could remove radioactivity from the groundwater, which continues to seep into the basement levels of three of the six nuclear reactors at Fukushima. An estimated 1.09 million tonnes of water are presently stored in more than 900 tanks at the plant, which was destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, with up to 4,000 tonnes added every week.

Pelosi says she won't allow State of the Union during shutdown; Trump will 'do something in the alternative' | 23 Jan 2019 | House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dug in Wednesday on her call to delay the State of the Union address even after President Trump vowed to proceed with the speech next week, sending a curt letter making clear she will not allow the event to take place during the government shutdown.
