@AmbJohnBolton didn't testify during impeachment of @realDonaldTrump because Bolton would've been under oath & would've had to contradict most, if not all, of his book's material.
John Bolton isn't a copious note taker, he's a serial composer of BS, lies, & deceit which is why he left the Bush Administration in 2006. He lied about being questioned in an investigation on a government form. He has been interviewed by DoS IG.
He couldn't get confirmed in the US Senate. It wasn't just that little lie that was uncovered that doomed his confirmation. It was also the one about the UN weapons inspector he lied about to get him fired. latimes.com/archives/la-xp…
The first known large scale commemoration of Memorial Day took place in May 1865 in Charleston, SC organized by a group of freed black slaves. The event was called "Decoration Day" due to decorating the graves, which they had dug and buried the Union troops during the
previous two weeks. This image shows the graves of Union troops that died at the Race Course prison camp in Charleston, later Hampton Park.
It was on 1 MAY of 1865, that the former slaves gave the fallen Union troops a day long funeral ceremony to honor their sacrifice. The event was documented in the Charleston Daily Courier as "Martyrs of the Race Course" after the ceremony.
NY has 161,807 cases of COVID-19, of which 87,028 cases are in NYC. Yet, the media act as if Cuomo has led the nation in response to the crisis. Yeah, he's led in having more cases than any other state in the union.
And, no it's not a population density issue 46.3% of NY's cases are outside of NYC. 2/3 of the state's population lives in NYC meaning 74,779 cases are outside the densely populated area of the NYC area. The next closest state, NJ, has 54,588.
NY has a population density of 421 people per square mile vs NJ having a population density of 1211 people per square mile. So, if population density is your Cuomo defense, then NJ should have more cases than NY, it's nearly three times as densely populated as NY.
Iranian & Iraqi state television have announced that IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani has been killed in airstrikes in the vicinity of Baghdad International Airport (BIAP).
Soleimani's death would be a significant blow to Iran. He was responsible for the recruitment, organization, training, and operations of Iranian backed militias throughout the Middle East.
Soleimani was also responsible for smuggling weapons into Yemen in support of Houthi rebels while Obama & Kerry were negotiating the Iran nuclear deal. This included heavy weapons that they did not have earlier in the internal conflicts within Yemen.
What we learned from Yovanovich's testimony was Democrats have been trying to use Ukraine for political purposes since at least the 2004 presidential election. During that election former Amb Holbrooke went to Ukraine as a private citizen on behalf of the Kerry Campaign for Pres.
Holbrooke spoke with numerous Ukrainian officials regarding then President George Bush. Dems brushed this off as "in the past and irrelevant" yet this is exact same thing is what they are accusing Rudy Giulani of doing, except Giulani is actually an attorney representing a client
Holbrooke was not. People are conflating US policy with an attorney conducting discovery because Democrats have been trying to remove President Trump since election day. We also learned that Yovanovich agreed that she could be replaced at any time and for any reason by POTUS.
Lutsenko was put in place by Biden through quid pro quo? Guess what the Obama appointed ambassador did? Gave Lusenko a "no prosecute list" which included Burisma. Guess who the Obama Admin tried to link up contracts with? Burisma. That just came from Lutsenko of Ukraine.
Ukraine is going to bite Democrats hard and the Bidens even harder. Lusenko was the prosecutor that replaced Shokin after he was fired due to Biden's pressure on the Ukrainian government. Guess who else is about to get dragged into the Ukraine corruption? Adam Schiff.
Remember Adam Schiff's "Taste of Ukraine" fundraiser? Who from that fundraiser is linked to Burisma?
In 1994, the Clinton Administration placed 10,000 Cuban refugees in camps in Panama in order to prevent them from entering the US. The refugees were forced to live in tents near the canal zone on Empire Range. Thousands more were held at GTMO.
Dozens to hundreds of Cubans were picked up at sea daily during this time period. The Clinton Administration was denying them entry to the US along with thousands of Haitians that were also fleeing Haiti.
The refugees lived in tents that were not air conditioned, they had very little clothing and most of what they received were donations from people in the US. Most of these refugees arrived with little more than the clothes on their back.
A senior CIA official is said to be cooperating with the probe into misconduct by the Brennan CIA regarding spying on the Trump Campaign during the 2016 election cycle. Look for some more serious implications to come out of the OIG, Huber, and Barr investigations.
Barr as AG has authority over these current investigations but also is said to be looking into matter based off evidence supplied by the Mueller Investigation. John Brennan was actively undermining then president-elect Trump after the stunning election victory.
Brennan was also using individuals outside the CIA and outside the US intelligence community to find dirt on Trump during the campaign and after his election. Brennan is one of the key individuals in this lunacy.
Many people are upset about the sudden news of charges being dropped against Jussie Smollett for hoaxing a hate crime despite the mountain of evidence against him and rightfully so.
Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, Tina Tchen, was involved in relaying the number of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx to a relative of Smollett. She also contacted Foxx personally to inform her the family had concerns about the police investigation.
The rationale for this concern was police leaks. Yet, most of what the leaks they were concerned about were already becoming public knowledge from sources outside the CPD. chicago.suntimes.com/news/records-f…
The media, Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu, Eric Swalwell, John Brennan, Peter Strzok, Sally Yates, James Comey and others did more to promote Putin's agenda of ripping our nation apart from the inside than 10,000 Russian intelligence officials.
Media keeps pointing out that the Russians tried to help Trump because of their anti Hillary push. What Russia actually did was allocate resources based off the probability of who would win. Trump had less than a 30% chance of winning according to most polls, some less than 10%.
The Internet Research Agency pushed more of an effort against the candidate it thought most likely to win. A lot of what it pushed was stuff that was already pushed out in the public domain, some of which was also pushed out by media outlets.
I told people not to worry about the Mueller Report ever since it started. The Mueller probe was never necessary, but it continued anyway. The reason I told people over and over not to worry about the Mueller Report was
because the parallel investigations uncovered much of the same information that Mueller was looking at and that kept the people on Mueller's team honest.
Why did Mueller pick so many Democrats? He did it so when the report dropped it would be indisputable about its objectivity leaving Democrats with absolutely zero ammo. Mueller's team uncovered some crimes such as the case with Manafort that were already known by the FBI/IRS.
SecDef Mattis referred to the Kurds in our 'allies and relationships' and that they risked being slaughtered by the Syrian government if we leave. The Kurds have more to fear from Turkey than they do Syrian government forces. Turkey sees the YPG and PKK as terrorist organizations
In February 2018, the Assad government gave some measure of aid to Syrian Kurds against Turkey in the northwest region of the country in Afrin. The government allowed the Kurds to move men, weapons, and equipment through government controlled areas to reinforce.
Turkey, our NATO ally whom we obviously have a partnership and alliance sees the Kurds in Afrin as a threat to its border. reuters.com/article/us-mid…
Secretary of Defense Mattis leaving is not the end of the world as the media makes it out to be. While I have respect for Mattis he's not the only person qualified for the job.
Every administration has its stars, and those stars often leave after about 2-3 years and often that's shortly after a midterm election or a presidential election. I think some of the friction that resulted in Mattis leaving was probably applied through John Bolton.
Mattis is an old guard type and believes in long term troop presence even after objectives have been met.
Comey said in July 2016, "To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions."
Comey also stated, "all other cases that were prosecuted involved intentional/willful mishandling of information. How does Comey think that classified information ended up on a private server? That IS willful intent because it has to be physically removed from systems.
Deutsche Bank was fined earlier in 2017 for money laundering linked to a $10 billion Russian money-laundering scheme that involved its Moscow, New York and London branches. money.cnn.com/2017/01/31/inv…
Bill Kristol tried rebranding effort as the preeminent right-leaning periodical for conservatives opposed to President Donald Trump. That is exactly what killed Weekly Standard. Bill Kristol as usual was wrong. Wrong about the election, wrong that being anti Trump would help him.
OH, and Bill Kristol is so wrong he doesn't understand that losing so many subscribers doesn't mean you actually have a shot at the presidency in 2020. Kristol is considering a 2020 run and can't keep enough subscribers to keep the Weekly Standard afloat.
Stormy Daniels says her lawyer Michael Avenatti has not responded to her frequent requests asking about where the money her supporters have donated has gone. Instead, Avenatti launched another crowdsource fundraiser that Stormy found out about on Twitter!
Seems Stormy Daniels is finally coming to terms that her lawyer isn't exactly the champion she thought. Many people told her that Avenatti was exploiting her and from the sounds of that interview she gave about his fundraising activities, it certainly sounds like it!
Maybe Stormy is seeing the end of the gravy train from all that free publicity that Avenatti was getting but she wasn't reaping as much as she thought she should.
In November 2013, the Obama Border Patrol used pepper spray on migrants attempting to unlawfully enter the United States. Barely a peep from the media over it. sandiegouniontribune.com/sdut-border-pa…
This doesn't mean they did not report it, it just means they did not have the selective outrage like they are having over it today. These journalists don't understand the potential lethality of baseball sized rocks being hurled at agents.
In 1994, during Operation Safe Haven, over 300 US troops were injured during riots at the four refugee camps President Clinton ordered set up to handle them. 18 of those US troops were severely wounded. I dragged several out of camp 1 myself. stripes.com/brutality-of-1…
You have the right to life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness. How you get there is up to you, but it is not a right for you to have health care or any material thing. You aren't going to lessen the costs of insurance without addressing the 40,000 physician shortage in the US.
A $10K operation still costs $10K. Insurance still rose far faster than inflation even with the ACA. The best you get from insurance reform is a short term dip in costs until more people start demanding the $10K operation, then it goes up to $11K or more due to demand.
Health care is not like manufactured devices where they get cheaper over time or due to increased productivity or other factors. There's only so many doctors and as demand for them increases prices for their services go up because of that increased demand.
#ProtectMueller from what? He hasn't been fired during the entire time he's been appointed. Trump has the prerogative to fire him any time he wants and hasn't done so. You people overreact to EVERYTHING!!! The same people pushing Mueller are the same that opposed Ken Starr.
If Trump wanted to fire him, he could have done so. Why would he bother with it when Mueller is reportedly at the end of his investigation and may deliver his report at the end of the month?
Media drive liberals nuts into thinking something is going to happen, like HRC winning the 2016 election, and when it doesn't happen they start screaming in the streets like that has some mystical impact on anything. Stop your whining over something that isn't happening.
For all the Democrats criticizing Trump for sending the military to the US-Mexico border. Bill Clinton sent the US Navy and Coast Guard to intercept Cuban refugees fleeing Cuba in 1994 & reversed a 30 year policy of allowing them into the US.
When these Cuban refugees rioted throwing rocks at the US troops in riot gear sent in by General Wilson, they injured over 200 US troops bad enough that they had to be evacuated by helicopter. stripes.com/brutality-of-1…
