Pentagon Shifts $1B In Funding To Plan And Build 57 Miles of Border Wall

WASHINGTON, March 25 (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Defense shifted $1 billion to plan and build a 57-mile section of “pedestrian fencing”, roads and lighting along the border between the United States and Mexico, the Pentagon chief said on Monday. 
Last week, the Pentagon gave Congress a list that included $12.8 billion of construction projects for which it said funds could be redirected for construction along the U.S.-Mexico border. U.S. President Donald Trump declared a national emergency last month in a bid to fund his promised border wall without congressional approval. 
Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan said in a memo to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen that the Department of Defense had the authority to support counter-narcotics activities near international boundaries.

Rush Limbaugh On The "Exoneration" of Donald Trump

It validates a hoax to applaud the fact that Mueller found nothing. There never was anything to find! There never was any collusion! There was never, ever any evidence of collusion! Therefore, there could never, ever be any evidence of obstruction of justice. 
The dossier was the sole reason all of this happened, and it was created by Hillary Clinton and Robert Mueller knew it! It was paid for by Hillary Clinton. It was commissioned by Hillary Clinton. It was written by somebody paid by Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, working with a guy named Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, and it was used by the FBI, who also knew that it was total crap to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump administration. 
There never has been any collusion between Trump and the Russians. And for those of you who remember the report, Mueller says, "Well, there were many, many efforts by the Russians to contact members of the Trump campaign, to infiltrate." That's a bunch of garbage as well. 
The FBI is who infiltrated the Trump campaign, not the Russians. It wasn't FBI who put informants like Stefan Halper and Alexander Downer into the Trump campaign. It was the FBI that recruited members of the Trump campaign. There's no evidence of the Russians having done anything here! 
So cheering this validates. "Look, Mueller didn't find anything, yay!" 
They wanted to find something so bad. Now, you might be saying, "Well, Rush, if it was a hoax, how come Mueller exonerated Trump?" He didn't! In case you haven't noticed, the media is off on a new tangent now. They're demanding to see the whole report because Mueller said, "I can't really clear Trump on obstruction. I can't find any evidence, but I'm gonna have to leave this up to the attorney general." This is not what prosecutors do! Prosecutors don't acknowledge possibility of criminal behavior if they can't find any. 
So the media and the Democrats now have an open roadway to impeachment on the basis of obstruction. And just like this hoax, they don't have to prove a damn thing. They just have to create media narratives, day in and day out, president obstructed, Mueller couldn't prove it, but he couldn't rule it out. That's all these idiots like Schiff and Swalwell and Jerry Nadler need to keep plugging away at impeaching Trump, which they're gonna do. 
Now, it's gonna end up embarrassing the hell out of 'em, and it's gonna end up blowing up in their face. But it isn't gonna stop this nightmare! It isn't gonna stop this ridiculousness! 
The Drive-By Media needs to be begging the forgiveness of everybody they have lied to the past two years, but they have no shame. They are simply looking for another road or another avenue now to continue this effort of theirs to destroy the Donald Trump presidency. That's all that remains, and that's all that matters.

Dr Jordan Peterson: 'Anti-Islam shirt' behind fellowship U-turn

This poorly-written article from the BBC doesn't appear to tell us where, or in what context, this "anti-Islam" t-shirt appeared.
Cambridge University rescinded a visiting fellowship offer to Dr Jordan Peterson because he was pictured with a man wearing an anti-Islam shirt, its vice-chancellor said. 
A two-month offer to the psychology professor was removed last week. Dr Peterson labelled the decision a "serious error of judgement". 
But Stephen Toope said the university was prompted to rescind the offer due to the picture of a man wearing an "I'm a proud Islamophobe" shirt. 
University of Toronto professor Dr Peterson, whose views on gender have been condemned by critics, was set to spend a period in autumn at Cambridge's Faculty of Divinity. 
He claimed in a blog post that he planned to collaborate with the faculty on a lecture series on the Biblical book of Exodus. 
Visiting fellows are not paid but can make use of the libraries, attend seminars and engage in research, according to the university.  
Visiting fellowships are "a courtesy extended to some academics from other institutions" Professor Toope said the offer of the fellowship was granted on an academic basis but, "as a consequence" of becoming aware of the image, the invitation was rescinded. 
"The casual endorsement by association of this message was thought to be antithetical to the work of a Faculty that prides itself in the advancement of inter-faith understanding," he said.

White House Says "The Threat to Our Democracy Was Hiding In Plain Sight"

The 2-year, $25 million witch hunt

Since Election Night 2016, Democrats and their media allies have been fixated on a simple illusion to justify their otherwise indefensible behavior toward an American Commander in Chief. Their illusion was that President Donald J. Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, and then obstructed justice to prevent anyone from finding out.
On Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had delivered his final report to Attorney General Bill Barr. Over the weekend, Attorney General Barr presented a summary of that report to Congress.
After an exhaustive investigation by the Special Counsel, filled with 2,800 subpoenas, more than 500 witnesses, millions of pages of documents, and $25 million wasted in taxpayer dollars, here is what it found: nothing.
No collusion. No obstruction. And a complete exoneration of President Trump and the entire Trump campaign—exactly what the President and the White House have told the American people from the beginning of the Democrats’ fishing expedition.
With that news, the entire Democratic narrative of the past two years collapsed in an instant. Two major failures explain how the witch hunt spiraled out of Democrats’ control:
Failure 1 was blatantly irresponsible reporting. In an effort to validate their own political instincts, the mainstream media abandoned all journalistic standards and repeatedly failed the American people by accepting wild speculation as fact. They smeared calls for due process and common-sense skepticism as political “gaslighting,” rather than defending these basic principles of fairness and impartiality.
Real issues that affect Americans from coast to coast were put on the backburner as airways were flooded with false and endless “reporting” of retreaded conspiracy theories. The New York TimesThe Washington Post, CNN, and MSNBC wrote a combined 8,507 articles citing Robert Mueller’s investigation since May 2017—an average of nearly 13 articles every single day.
The New York Times published 644 more stories mentioning the Mueller investigation than they did mentioning NAFTA renegotiations. The Washington Post wrote 192 more stories mentioning Mueller than they did America’s defeat of the Islamic State. And CNN produced a stunning 908 more stories about the investigation than they did about implementation of the biggest tax reform plan in American history.
Keep in mind, the vast majority of that was before Mueller had issued any report.
Failure 2 was Democrat recklessness. The left desperately tried to promote collusion conspiracies to rationalize their 2016 loss and sink Donald Trump’s presidency.
Here’s just a small sample of their comments—astonishing and inexcusable in light of Mueller’s report:
  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) stated that there was “plenty evidence of collusion”—and of a scandal “of a size and scope probably beyond Watergate.”
  • House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said he believed there “was obviously a lot of collusion.”
  • Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that she was praying for the investigation to “connect the dots so that he can prove the collusion.”
  • DNC Chairman Tom Perez repeatedly stated that there was a “mountain of evidence of collusion between the campaign and the Russians.”
  • Numerous House and Senate Democrats called for President Trump’s impeachment long before the conclusion of the Special Counsel investigation.
“I love this country as much as I can love anything: my family, my country, my God. But what they did, it was a false narrative,” President Trump said today. “We can never let this happen to another President again.”
There’s no spinning it: Congressional Democrats, much of the mainstream media, and former Obama Administration officials peddled one of the greatest lies in American political history in a failed attempt to reverse the election of a President they simply don’t like.
The real threat to our democracy was hiding in plain sight all along.

We Should All Be Celebrating The Collapse Of Hillary’s Big Lie

Stick a fork in impeachment. It’s dead. Victory doesn’t get any sweeter for the winners. Or more important for our country. The results of the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller are a tremendous vindication for President Trump and the many millions of Americans who never doubted his innocence. 
The findings prove, once and for all time, that he won the 2016 election fair and square.[….] Yet Mueller, after conducting the most exhaustive test ever of election integrity, reached this stunning conclusion: 
“The Special Counsel did not find that any US person or Trump campaign official or associate conspired or knowingly coordinated” with Russians “despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.” 
No American — not a single one — took the Russian bait. And that includes every member of the Trump campaign. That is a fact worthy of celebration, for it shows our democracy is strong and our institutions uncompromised. 
Other implications of the report’s findings are also enormous. We now know that Hillary Clinton and her supporters misled the country in claiming that the White House was stolen from her. 
She started the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax and her claims, aided by the Obama White House and magnified by a thoroughly partisan media, set in motion a wild-goose chase. 
The chase undermined a duly elected president and cost taxpayers more than $30 million for an investigation that proved the accusations were flat-out false. Yet money alone is hardly the full price. 
The probe itself was a giant cloud over the presidency. Trump’s cabinet, his family, his aides and every policy he put forth were viewed with suspicion by those who bought Clinton’s Big Lie. 
Many of those people shelled out thousands of dollars for legal bills merely to answer questions and prove themselves innocent of any wrongdoing. 
It is also a given that China, North Korea, Iran and, yes, Russia have factored into their relations with us the possibility that Trump might not be long for the Oval Office. 
We will never know exactly what price America paid for that possibility, but you can be certain it was high, and that the ramifications will not instantly disappear.

WSJ: Mueller and the Obama Accounting: Obama Owes The Country An Explanation

The Mueller report confirms that the Obama administration, without evidence, turned the surveillance powers of the federal government against the presidential campaign of the party out of power. 
This historic abuse of executive authority was either approved by President Barack Obama or it was not. 
It’s time for Mr. Obama, who oddly receives few mentions in stories about his government’s spying on associates of the 2016 Trump campaign, to say what he knew and did not know about the targeting of his party’s opponents. . . . 
It’s time for this lawyer and alleged passionate defender of the Bill of Rights to explain the actions of his overzealous and overreaching executive branch. 
If he didn’t find out about the wiretapping until after the fact, when exactly did he learn about it and how did he respond? 
What has always seemed clear is that Mr. Obama never actually believed the now-discredited claim that the Trump campaign worked with Russia to rig the 2016 U.S. elections. . . . 
If Mr. Obama never bought into the collusion conspiracy theory, then the question is why he endorsed or allowed the use of federal surveillance tools against the party out of power—a direct threat to the democratic process that is at the heart of our country’s greatness. 
Mr. Obama might have room to deny any knowledge of the details of the surveillance abuses, given the story his FBI director told Congress—if anybody could believe that story. 
The absolute bare minimum that Mr. Obama owes this country is an explanation of the actions of his government in spying on a presidential campaign.

Avenatti Arrested For Trying to Extort $20M from NIKE

Avenatti Arrested For Trying to Extort $20M from NIKE...

Lawyer Michael Avenatti is facing coast-to-coast charges in separate extortion and fraud schemes, the feds announced Monday.
Avenatti — who shot to fame representing porn star Stormy Daniels over her claims of an affair with President Trump and more recently the parents of Azriel Clary, one of R. Kelly’s alleged “sex slaves” — was arrested in Manhattan on charges that he tried to shake down the sneaker giant Nike for $20 million last week, authorities said.
“I’ll go take $10 billion off your client’s market cap … I’m not f–king around,” court papers say he told Nike lawyers during a conference call Wednesday.
That conversation came a day after Avenatti met with Nike’s lawyers and “threatened to release damaging information” if the company didn’t pay off Avenatti and an unidentified co-conspirator, according to a complaint filed in Manhattan federal court.
The Wall Street Journal identified the alleged co-conspirator as lawyer Mark Geragos, citing two people familiar with the matter.
Avenatti’s alleged “not f–king around” threat allegedly came on the eve of Nike’s quarterly earnings report, and two days before the start of the NCAA’s “March Madness” college basketball tournament.
The charges against him were revealed just minutes after Avenatti — who recently flirted with a Democratic presidential campaign — tweeted that he would be holding a Tuesday morning news conference about “a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered.”
“This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball,” he claimed.
During an afternoon news conference, Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said Avenatti told Nike that if his demands weren’t met, the company would be “inflicted with cut after cut after cut after cut.”
“A suit and tie doesn’t mask the fact that at its core this was an old-fashioned shakedown,” Berman said.
As for the charges against him in California, prosecutors in the Golden State allege that Avenatti stole a client’s $1.6 million settlement and spent the cash on personal expenses and debts, and to run his law firm and former coffee business, Tully’s Coffee, which had stores in Los Angeles and Seattle.
Avenatti is also accused of defrauding a bank in Mississippi by using fake tax returns to borrow $4.1 million, even though he never filed personal tax returns for 2011, 2012 and 2013 — and still owes the IRS more than $850,000 in unpaid taxes, penalties and interest for 2009 and 2010, the feds said.
