Federal Debt Ceiling Reached As Federal Spending Rages

The federal government will soon run up against its self-imposed borrowing cap once again. Current estimates are for the government to max out its credit limit at a little over $22 trillion in early September. Congress goes on recess in August, so there is some pressure to address the cap right now.

IMPLOSION! Beto O’Rourke Pulls 0.0% In Major Presidential Poll!

Sure, most of the 24 candidates running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination are really just vying for a place on the ticket as the vice presidential nominee, but one candidate has imploded so badly that he might not even be able to snag that dubious honor.

In a new poll from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, a prominent survey that measures the mood of registered voters in America’s first primary state, former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke pulled in 0.0% of the vote.

We were so confused we had to call the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at the college to find out why O’Rourke’s name didn’t appear on the list at all.

“The question was open-ended and no one said his name,” said a spokeswoman at the Institute.

BREAKING: Speaker Pelosi Violates House Rules After She Walks Off Floor – House Votes to Strike Her Comments on Trump From the Record

Republican Congressman Doug Collins (GA) challenged Speaker Pelosi on Tuesday as she spoke in favor of condemning Trump’s “racist” tweets from the House floor.

“There’s no excuse for any response to those words but a swift and strong unified condemnation. Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values, and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people. I urge a unanimous vote, and yield back the balance of my time,” Pelosi said.

Rep. Collins demanded that Pelosi’s remarks be “taken down,” in an extraordinary rebuke of the House Speaker Tuesday afternoon.

Rep. Collins’ challenge to Pelosi was bold and was the first of its kind in decades — his rebuke of the Speaker could actually result in Pelosi being barred from speaking on the House floor for the rest of the day.

Floor fight erupts as Pelosi speaks ahead of vote to condemn Trump's 'racist' comments

Escalating tensions on Capitol Hill erupted into a contentious floor fight in the House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke in favor of a proposed resolution condemning "racist" comments by President Trump -- even as Republican leaders stood steadfast behind the president.

When Pelosi's remarks turned personal, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins rose to challenge her and demand that her words be "taken down." The extraordinary rebuke, the first of its kind involving a member of Congress and a speaker of the House in decades, theoretically could result in Pelosi being barred from speaking on the floor for the remainder of the day.

A MUST READ: A Financial Review of Jeffrey Epstein’s Ties to the Suspicious Wexner Foundation

An Internet sleuth provided us some questionable ties related to Epstein and Barak Ehud. For the past 15 years there are numerous entities operating in both Ohio and NY related to the Wexner Foundation. The ties to Epstein seem to be limited to the early years and fairly straight forward.

For tax years 2001 through 2006, the tax returns for the Foundation list Jeffrey Epstein as a Trustee and the person with whom the corporate books are in the possession of (at the same address of the Foundation in Ohio). Additionally, for 2001 the Wexner Foundation only received one contribution of $9,588,560 and that contribution came from an entity named ARTS INTEREST TRUST with an address of C/O Jeffrey Epstein in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.

President Trump Is Attempting to De-Thrown Obama and Brennan’s Deep State CIA and Director Haspel Is Not Making It Easy

The Deep State within the CIA are doing all they can to obstruct President Trump from finding out the origins of the Russia Collusion sham.

President Trump is doing all he can to bring them to justice.

The Deep State within the government is corrupt, criminal and cowardly. The DOJ and FBI have obviously been run by Obama’s criminal Deep State. The State Department as well. Nearly every agency in Obama’s government was corrupted during the Obama years. The CIA is no exception and may even be the worse.

To gain an understanding of the corruption within the CIA we must step back and look at the past few decades. The CIA culture of dealing with abuses of power was to cover it up or use counter intelligence as a weapon to make or bury a case and target Americans directly or to use foreign intelligence or governments as surrogates.

Bill Clinton took 26 flights on Epstein’s jet, frequently ditched Secret Service

The media is working overtime to convince viewers that President Donald Trump was BFF’s with Florida billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. But former President Bill Clinton is the one who allegedly took over two dozen mysterious flights on Epstein’s private jets and reportedly ditched his Secret Service detail several times to go on escapades with the billionaire.

Epstein was arrested on Saturday in New York and charged with sex trafficking of minors.

Epstein had many powerful friends that he may turn on for leniency, which brings Bill Clinton into the spotlight.

Clinton flew many times on Epstein’s jet, which was dubbed the Lolita Express, and supposedly ditched his Secret Service detail on at least 5 of these trips.

SAN FRANCISCO — The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP filed a class action lawsuit today on behalf of AT&T customers in California to stop the telecom giant and two data location aggregators from allowing numerous entities—including bounty hunters, car dealerships, landlords, and stalkers—to access wireless customers’ real-time locations without authorization.

New CNN Assange Smear Piece Is Amazingly Dishonest, Even For CNN

CNN has published an unbelievably brazen and dishonest smear piece on Julian Assange, easily the most egregious article of its kind since the notoriously bogus Assange-Manafort report by The Guardian last year. It contains none of the “exclusive” documents which it claims substantiate its smears, relying solely on vague unsubstantiated assertions and easily debunked lies to paint the WikiLeaks founder in a negative light.

And let’s be clear right off the bat, it is most certainly a smear piece...

California Committee Approves Measure to Create Banking Alternative for Cannabis Industry, Bypass Federal Reserve

By Michael Maharrey

Last week, a second California Assembly committee unanimously passed a bill that would establish limited state-chartered banks to serve the cannabis industry. Final passage of this legislation would remove a major federal roadblock in front of the developing industry in the state and further nullify federal prohibition in practice.

Sen. Bob Hertzberg, (D-Van Nuys), along with a bipartisan coalition of eight cosponsors, filed Senate Bill 51 (SB51) on Dec. 4. The legislation would create a self-contained banking system for the cannabis industry in California...

Knowing the “Value” of Our Data Won’t Fix Our Privacy Problems

By Hayley Tsukayama

Some lawmakers, seeking to hold companies accountable for the way they collect and profit from our personal information, are pushing a new idea: requiring companies to report a dollar value for the data they collect from us. Some frame this reporting as a first step towards requiring companies to share with consumers the wealth our personal information generates for these companies. Yet knowing how much your personal information is worth to a company doesn’t actually protect your privacy—and the “pay for privacy” schemes that would probably follow from valuation reporting would actually harm it...

UK ambassador vouched for 'legit' dossier author, said Trump killed Iran deal to spite Obama, leaks show

President Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal last year in an act of "diplomatic vandalism" to spite Barack Obama, according to a new leaked diplomatic cable purportedly written by British ambassador Kim Darroch in 2018.

Darroch also reportedly told a U.S. official that Christopher Steele, the author of the discredited anti-Trump dossier that the FBI used to justify secretly monitoring members of the Trump team, was "absolutely legit." Steele, in producing the dossier and several of its false or unsubstantiated claims, was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

The leaked diplomatic documents were published by the The Mail on Sunday, days after the paper published several anti-Trump messages Darroch sent to Downing Street from 2017 to present.

Biden planning to drop out of 2020 presidential race due to health concerns: Report

Former Vice President Joe Biden is planning to drop out of the 2020 presidential race due to health concerns, according to Infowars radio host Alex Jones, who says he’s got the info on good authority.

During a weekend broadcast, Jones played a number of recent clips of Biden on the campaign train in which he appears confused, dazed, and unable to properly enunciate his words. Also, in some of the clips, Biden is shown making reference to issues that either don’t exist or are out of context.

For instance, in one speech Biden pledges "there will be no more Charlottesvilles" — a reference to the deadly protest clash between Alt-Left Antifa factions and Alt-Right white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., last year — but then goes on to say "there will be no more Helsinkis."

‘NOT A TYPO’: Democrat Poll Shows What Voters Think Of Omar, Ocasio-Cortez

A new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday showed that socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are extremely unpopular and that they may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020.

"Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view," Axios reported. "Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota — another member of The Squad — was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view."

"Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%," Axios added, whereas "capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable."

The firm that conducted the poll gave the results to Axios on the condition that it not be named because it works "with all parts of the party."

Exclusive Poll: AOC Defining Dems in Swing States

Top Democrats are circulating a poll showing that one of the House's most progressive members — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has become a definitional face for the party with a crucial group of swing voters.

Why it matters: These Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency. The poll is making the rounds of some of the most influential Democrats in America.

Internal Dem poll of swing voters is bad news if they want to win outside deep-blue districts:

AOC
• Known by 74% of voters
• 22% have favorable view

Ilhan
• 53% known
• 9% favorable

Socialism
• Favorable: 18%
• Unfavorable: 69

Capitalism
• Fave: 56%
• Unfave: 32

"Religious Fanatics Have Hijacked America's Israel Policy. And They're Not Even Evangelicals"

Trump's extremist, maverick pro-settler envoys, David Friedman and Jason Greenblatt, aren't resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They're fueling it - and Congress should investigate

With ten-pound hammers in their hands and ecstatic religious-nationalist zeal in their hearts, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and White House Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt stood underneath the most religiously volatile place on earth, and smashed a wall – and with it, any last semblance of reasonable U.S. policy towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The two senior U.S. diplomats were among the guests of honor, together with Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, at the inauguration of an archaeological tunnel in East Jerusalem that unearths a path claimed to lead from a ritual cleansing pool to the Second Jewish Temple.

Epstein: Protected Because He Is a Spy? — A Backgrounder

Vicky Ward, who tried to report on Jeffrey Epstein’s criminality as early as 2003, recently wrote that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta “cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had ‘been told’ to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. ‘I was told Epstein “belonged to intelligence” and to leave it alone,’ he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)” See Ward’s recent pieces for The Daily Beast: “Jeffrey Epstein’s Sick Story Played Out for Years in Plain Sight” and “I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003.”

The recent firings of top Italian spies were likely related to Obama and a plot to set up candidate and President Trump in their Hillary email scandal.

In May Italian Prime Minister Conteasked for the resignations of four top intelligence officials after his call with President Donald Trump.

After that it was reported that the recent removal of these top Italian intelligence ministers from their positions as top spies in the government had been uncovered.

Glenn Greenwald has faced pushback for his reporting before. But not like this.

Glenn Greenwald was jittery. He had another big story in the works, and the atmosphere around his home office was frenetic: Dogs barking, 27 security cameras filming, big men with guns standing guard.

For weeks, from a house transformed into a bunker, Greenwald had published allegations casting doubt on the impartiality of the corruption investigation that led to the imprisonment of former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and contributed to the rise of President Jair Bolsonaro.

In two days, he would publish another story alleging that the judge who’d overseen Lula’s case, Sérgio Moro, a national hero in Brazil for his role taking on corruption, had colluded with prosecutors to convict him.

“This material is going to come out,” he said. “Even if they put me in prison.”

Did Trump just toss House Dems a lifeline?

One of the most important rules in partisan politics is this: when your opponents are fighting amongst themselves, stay out of it. House Democrats spent the last few days in a civil war over whether Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Black Caucus are racists or whether the “Freshman Squad” are idiots.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime apotheosis of that axiom, a singular and historic opportunity to let the party of identity politics shred itself to pieces over it.

That is, unless a Republican interrupted it and gives both sides a new target. Enter Donald Trump:

Without a dramatic change in our own strategy, without direct action on our part instead of action through political middlemen, I predict our situation will only become worse.

Jeffrey Epstein built fortune by 'blackmailing investors over sex parties,' says sociology professor writing a book about the financier

Jeffrey Epstein is a 'fraudster' who may have made his riches through embezzling millions from his charity and blackmailing investors, according to a sociology professor, who is writing a book about the embattled financier.

Thomas Volscho, a professor at the College of Staten Island, has investigated how Epstein made his fortune, which has remained a 'mystery.'

Volscho identified a Virgin Island corporate filing, where he claimed Epstein's company has $82million and a deed for 14 parcels of land for Elizabeth Ross Johnson - the heiress of Johnson & Johnson - with his name on it, as just one venture that Epstein has mentioned as a source of funds.

House passes bipartisan amendment barring Trump from striking Iran without congressional approval

The House overwhelmingly passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) barring President Trump from going to war with Iran without congressional approval Friday. The amendment, sponsored by Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna and Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, would prevent federal funds from being used for any conflict in Iran without congressional authorization.

"Congress has spoken in clear terms that the American people do not want another endless war in the Middle East," Khanna told CBS News about the passage of his amendment.

However, a similar amendment to the NDAA failed in the Senate last month, as it received only 50 votes -- ten fewer than the 60 votes needed to pass.
