Royal Family Biographer Defends Prince Andrew: "Soliciting Sex From Minors Is Not Pedophilia"

Biographer for the Royal Family, Lady Colin Campbell, recently appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain where she defended Prince Andrew against claims of pedophilia. 
In her defense of the disgraced prince, Campbell pointed to the “prostitution” charge that Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of in 2008, and attempted to downplay the fact that the girls were underage by suggesting that he was simply hiring sex workers. 
You all seem to have forgotten that Jeffrey Epstein, the offense for which he was charged and for which he was imprisoned, was for soliciting prostitution from minors. That is not the same thing as pedophilia,” Campbell told a shocked panel Monday morning. 
Host Piers Morgan immediately challenged her claims, saying: 
“If you solicited a 14-year-old for prostitution, you’re a pedophile. You’re procuring an underage girl for sex. That’s what he was convicted of. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, with respect, that is nonsense.” 
Campbell then immediately attempted to backpedal, claiming that a distinction must be made between a minor and a child. 
“Was he? 14? Well, I’m not justifying Jeffrey Epstein. Pedophilia, I suspect there’s a difference between a minor and a child,” she said. 
“A 14-year-old is a child. Legally, she’s a child,” Morgan replied.

SAYS IT ALL: Eric Ciaramella in Oval Office with Barack Obama

In the photograph, a smiling Ciaramella, then Ukraine director on the National Security Council at the White House, is shown shaking Obama’s hand. They are standing in front of a portrait of Abraham Lincoln by George Henry Story. 
A Republican close to the White House said the photo was evidence Ciaramella supported Obama and its selection for the wedding website indicated he considered the Oval Office image a “glamour shot.” 
“This photo confirms that career intelligence and foreign service officials serving at the highest ranks of the Trump White House have their own agenda and their own policy viewpoints,” the Republican source said. 
The website for the September 2018 wedding of Mat Calabro, a Connecticut high school friend of Ciaramella, is now defunct. The two friends traveled through Central and Eastern Europe together in the summer of 2005, and Ciaramella was a best man at Calabro’s wedding in Newport, Rhode Island. 
“This picture raises serious questions about how this sham impeachment process started,” a senior Trump administration official said. “It’s no surprise that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam] Schiff has now changed his story about letting the falsely labeled whistleblower testify.” 
Eric Ciaramella is a 33-year-old CIA officer who was planted inside the White House by ex-CIA chief John Brennan to spy on Trump and thwart the Spygate investigation being conducted by US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham.

The Impeachment Show: "And That Pretty Much Dismantles Their Whole Case"

Star witness, the puffy Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman (in service of whose army he wears the uniform for still a topic for debate). I'll get to the particulars in a second but really, the most important thing to keep in mind that makes any and all of this utterly irrelevant is the transcript of the phone call between Presidents Trump and Zelensky was released about two weeks ago and there is nothing that was said that could even be remotely construed as an impeachable offense. 
Unlike the REO-Speedwagon-heard-it-from-a-friend-who-heard-it-from-a-friend mid level bureaucrats, traitors and flunkies who are just out and out liars with axes to grind, Lt. General Keith Kellog, who is Mike Pence's national security advisor was actually on the call and has confirmed zero impropriety. Period. Full stop. 
But, for those still keen on fabulists, Majorette Bearclaw's testimony included admitting, much that it pained him to say so, that the President makes policy and it is not incumbent upon him to do what the State Dept. or others want, this after going to the NSC to bitch and moan about disagreeing with the President's Ukraine policy. 
Can you say "insubordination?" 
He claimed that he advised the Ukrainian President not to trust the Russians, despite later admitting that he never had a private one-on-one with him. In any case it would be funny if he did say something so moronic considering Russia had already annexed Crimea, and who the hell is this fat sack of lipids to give advice to anyone? 
He also claimed he heard the word "Burisma" mentioned on the call despite not being on the transcript but that that was not a significant omission (pfft!) and conceded that Hunter Biden had zero qualifications for the alleged position he held at that company and most crucially that despite not knowing who the alleged "whistleblower" is gave a very distinct impression that he, Vindman, was a key source of information in the actual whistleblower complaint. 
And that's when Schiff-for-Brains started banging the gavel like a crack-addicted chimpanzee playing drums for the Evolution Revolution. 
Later on, it was the turn of former diplomat Kurt Volker to look like a jackass courtesy of Rep. Mike Turner: ... 
"So I get to ask you. You had a meeting with the President of the United States, and you believe that the policy issues he raised concerning Ukraine were valid, correct?" 
"Yes," Volker said. 
"Did the President of the United States ever say to you that he was not going to allow aid from the United States to go to the Ukraine unless there were investigations into Burisma, the Bidens, or the 2016 elections?" Turner asked. 
"No, he did not," Volker said. 
Turner then asked, "Did the Ukrainians ever tell you that they understood that they would not get a meeting with the President of the United States, a phone call with the President of the United States, military aid, or foreign aid from the United States unless they undertook investigations of Burisma, the Bidens, or the 2016 elections?" 
"No, they did not," Volker said. 
Turner noted that Volker's answers essentially dismantled the Democrats' entire case for impeaching Trump. 
"Pretty much, Ambassador Volker, you just, like, took apart their entire case," Turner said.

FBI investigating role of 'criminal enterprise' in death of Jeffrey Epstein

Gee, d'ya think?
The director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons told the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday that the FBI is investigating the possibility that a “criminal enterprise” played a role in the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. 
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., questioned Kathleen Hawk Sawyer about Epstein’s death in jail while he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. 
“With a case this high-profile, there has got to be either a major malfunction of the system or a criminal enterprise afoot to allow this to happen,” Graham said. “So are you looking at both? Is the FBI looking at both?” 
“The FBI is involved and they are looking at criminal enterprise, yes,” Sawyer replied.
I'm guessing she won't look too hard, for fear that she might, also, "commit suicide."

"Those Who Depict Our Prophet, We'll Blow Them Up": Muslim AK-47s and Bombings Turn Sweden Into War Zone

Muslim AK-47s and Bombings Turn Sweden Into War Zone 
“Those who depict our prophet, we’ll blow them up.” 
This isn’t terrorism. It’s a war. And it’s going on every day in Sweden. 
Sweden is reeling from a wave of shootings and bombings with 268 shootings just this year so far. And that’s in a country of 10 million people which has crime numbers on par with some American cities. 
“Sweden may have the answer to America’s gun problem,” Vox declared in 2016. Or maybe not. These shootings aren’t being carried out with handguns, but with AK-47s. 
The weapon so often used as a boogeyman by gun control advocates, but rarely featured in everyday gun violence, is a staple of Sweden’s gang war scene. Along with hand grenades and other explosives rarely seen in America.

Another Kavanaugh accuser admits to fabricating rape story

Another Kavanaugh accuser admits to fabricating rape story
One of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s accusers admitted this week that she made up her lurid tale of a backseat car rape, saying it “was a tactic” to try to derail the judge’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. 
Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee revealed the fraud in a letter to the FBI and Justice Department Friday, asking them to prosecute Judy Munro-Leighton for lying to and obstructing Congress. 
Mr. Grassley said Ms. Munro-Leighton is a left-wing activist who hijacked another “Jane Doe” anonymous report about a backseat rape and claimed it as her own story, calling it a “vicious assault.” 
“I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA — Kavanaugh raped me,” Ms. Munro-Leighton wrote in an Oct. 3 email claiming to have been a victim of the judge. 
Mr. Grassley’s investigators tried to reach her for a month but were unsuccessful until this week, when they spoke to her by phone and she confessed that she was not the original Jane Doe, and “did that as a way to grab attention.” 
She admitted to the false allegation, and said she has actually never met Justice Kavanaugh. “I was angry, and I sent it out,” she told investigators. 
“In short, during the committee’s time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted committee resources,” Mr. Grassley wrote. 
“When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a ‘ploy,’ and a ‘tactic.’ She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

ZERSETZUNG: The Dark Secrets of The Surveillance State

ZERSETZUNG: What the Stasi did in East Germany, and what today's left in the USA is doing today - (with the information gleamed from social media): 
"The Stasi perfected the technique of psychological harassment of perceived enemies known as Zersetzung (pronounced [ʦɛɐ̯ˈzɛtsʊŋ]) – a term borrowed from chemistry which literally means "decomposition". ...the Stasi often used a method which was really diabolic. It was called Zersetzung, and it's described in another guideline. 
The word is difficult to translate because it means originally "biodegradation". But actually, it's a quite accurate description. The goal was to destroy secretly the self-confidence of people, for example by damaging their reputation, by organizing failures in their work, and by destroying their personal relationships. Considering this, East Germany was a very modern dictatorship. 
The Stasi didn't try to arrest every dissident. It preferred to paralyze them, and it could do so because it had access to so much personal information and to so many institutions."

Rex Tillerson Vs Nikki Haley: Tillerson Tried To Undermine Trump On Jerusalem, Nikki Haley Kicked The Shit Out of Him In a Shameful Backroom Beatdown

It is just amazing that in such a context, any secretary of state — in the event it was Secretary Tillerson — would fetch up in the new administration plumping to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv. Yet that is what Ambassador Haley reports was the case. Within six months of becoming ambassador, she writes, Jerusalem emerged as a point of contention within the cabinet, with dissenters asserting that the move would beget violence. 
Ms. Haley writes that “one White House official” attempted to “enlist” her “in convincing the president to back off his promise.” Writes she: “I refused, because I wanted the president to go ahead with it.” Resistance continued. “In every meeting of the president’s cabinet and national security advisors, there was a faction that seemed to think they, not the president, should make the final decision when it came to policy.” 
“They thought they could team up and spin the president — and they tried. Some, like Secretary of State Tillerson, seemed to be thinking primarily about how the decision would affect their reputations. He declared in the middle of the meeting that he wanted to be on record opposing the move.” 
He ended up on the same side of the issue as Al-Qaeda and Hamas, as well as President Macron, Prime Minister May, and Chancellor Merkel.

Tillerson was a perfect reflection of most of official Washington: Unimaginative and wrong.
