Lawyers: Files sent by Alex Jones contained child porn

Appearing angry on his web show based in Austin, Texas, Jones accused one of the families' lawyers, Christopher Mattei, of planting the child pornography in the files in an effort to frame Jones. He also offered a $1 million reward for information on who sent the emails containing child porn.

In a motion filed in Waterbury Superior Court on Monday, lawyers for the families accused Jones of threatening Mattei by naming him on the show, showing his photo and wrongly accusing him of planting the child pornography. The motion will be discussed at a court hearing on Tuesday. Pattis denied that Jones threatened Mattei.

"Total war! You want it, you got it!" Jones said on the show while talking about Mattei, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for state attorney general last year. "I'm not into kids like your Democratic party. ... So get ready!"

‘What is Trump’s motivation to be provocative with Iran?’ Pelosi asks– and the answer is Adelson

Yesterday Nancy Pelosi asked a very pointed question on CNN, Why is Trump threatening a war with Iran?

[W]hat is his motivation? What is their motivation to be provocative with the Iranians? Why did the president turn his back on the Iranian nuclear agreement? What’s the logic except some other issue — that it was negotiated by President Obama? We had so many national security experts, whether they were ambassadors, generals, admirals and all the rest supporting the agreement as well, so it had official, diplomatic, national security, technical, nuclear, et cetera support along the way. So why?

So, then he comes in and does — undoes that and inflames the U.S.-Iran issue. Why? What is the purpose?… I think he probably knows there’s no appetite for war among the American people.

Obama State At Center of Anti-Trump Coup Cabal

John Kerry, President Obama’s secretary of state, seems to be having trouble staying within the legal bounds of the Logan Act, so it’s not surprising that his State Department lieutenants were getting their hands dirty in the conspiracy to bring down Donald Trump.

We now received more evidence of this anti-Trump conspiracy. With The Daily Caller News Foundation, we just released 16 pages of documents revealing senior State Obama officials – Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer – coordinated with incoming House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer’s (D-MD) national security advisor, Daniel Silverberg, to work on Russia dossier information provided by Christopher Steele.

ANZ staff 'outraged' over David Hisco company spending revelations: union

The union for retail bank workers says ANZ staff are reeling over news that former chief executive David Hisco spent company money on a chauffeur and wine storage.

Yesterday the country's largest bank announced that Hisco would be departing his $3 million plus a year job immediately following an investigation which alleged he "mischaracterised" certain personal expenses as business expenses.

Those expenses which ran into the "tens of thousands of dollars" over Hisco's nine-year stint as chief executive included personal use of chauffeur-driven cars and storage of wine in Australia - his country of birth.

Massive Embezzlement Scandal Threatens Juan Guaido’s Political Future

The political party of Juan Guaido — Voluntad Popular (Popular Will) — was never all that popular to begin with. The sixth largest political party in Venezuela, Popular Will is heavily financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Now, a recently exposed embezzlement scandal in Colombia risks to further alienate the party from the Venezuelan people.

What was supposed to be Guaido’s watershed moment has instead turned out to be a public-relations failure far worse than his quickly quelled attempted military coup, which MintPress News reported caused even the New York Times to describe Guaido as “deflated.”

What happened in Colombia appears to be so damning that not only is the Colombian intelligence service leaking documents exposing wrongdoing by Popular Will representatives appointed by Guaido, but the Organization of American States (OAS) — which is typically just as pro-opposition as the Colombian government — has called for an investigation.

Watch: Glenn Greenwald Explains the Political Earthquake in Brazil Caused by Our Ongoing Exposés

LAST SUNDAY, THE INTERCEPT and The Intercept Brasil published a series of exposés that has created a major political earthquake in Brazil that has only grown and intensified throughout the week. In less than a week, the once-revered justice minister of President Jair Bolsonaro’s government, Sérgio Moro, now faces widespread calls to resign from the same large Brazilian media outlets that spent years transforming him into an untouchable icon of integrity and uncritically applauding his every move.

OPIOID MANUFACTURER INSYS TO PAY $225 MILLION SETTLEMENT AFTER ADMITTING TO BRIBING DOCTORS

One of America’s biggest opioid manufacturers is set to pay a massive federal penalty after getting nailed for bribing doctors to prescribe their dangerous and highly addictive fentanyl painkillers. The distribution scheme of Insys Therapeutics, that pushed potent opiates into the hands of patients that did not need them, has been described as a driving force behind America’s ongoing public health epidemic stemming from use of the drugs.

Insys, an Arizona company that reported almost $150 million in revenue in 2017, contracted doctors who agreed to prescribe their drugs for sham speeches. In reality, the doctors were getting paid for issuing prescriptions of Subsys, the company’s fentanyl-based painkiller medication.

Sheila Jackson Lee, Others, to Host Danny Glover on Subject of Slavery Reparations

A once-extreme position — reparations for slavery in this country — is enjoying the support of more and more Democrats these days as those in the party strategize ahead of next year’s elections.

And in the days ahead, activist and actor Danny Glover will be addressing Congress on the issue.

As conservative radio host and writer Wayne Dupree put it, “Why are actors testifying before Congress about issues not directly related to acting? Legal, historical, and economic experts should be occupying the time of Congress about this issue.”

“Why does Congress have so much time to waste by allowing celebrities to testify outside of their area of expertise?” he added.

CALIFORNIA SEEKS TO STRIP DOCTORS OF AUTHORITY TO GRANT KIDS MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS FOR VACCINATIONS

Imagine taking your two-month-old daughter in for her scheduled vaccines. Imagine watching as she begins to convulse soon after receiving her shots and then continues to experience seizures over the next few days. You might want to make sure she never receives a particular vaccine again. You might decide not to give her any more vaccines at all. You might also decide to delay vaccines for her siblings or to forego them altogether. These are all understandable responses to a frightening situation that any parent can relate to.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A COP PULLS OVER LANCASTER COUNTY PRESIDENT JUDGE DENNIS REINAKER

From the quoted legal experts, the short of it seems to be that Reinaker's instruction is an effective, studied way for an official to ensure they make themselves known without directly stating directly who they are, allowing them to get out of trouble without getting into trouble.

BURIED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT - THE ‘FREE PRESS’ AND THE LEAKED OPCW REPORT ON DOUMA

A defining feature of the propaganda system is that facts supporting the agenda of Western power are pushed to the forefront of the 'mainstream' media, while inconvenient facts are buried. A prime example is the shameful media silence in response to a devastating document leaked from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), discussed in a recent media alert.

'Another rotten borough': Nigel Farage lashes out after observers warn Labour's by-election win in Peterborough was 'like corrupt Kazakhstan' as police probe five cases of 'malpractice'

Labour’s victory by just 683 votes over the Brexit Party in Peterborough was mired in controversy last week after The Mail on Sunday revealed claims that a convicted vote rigger was at the centre of the party’s campaign.

Cambridgeshire Police have since revealed they are investigating five complaints of electoral malpractice, including bribery.

John Ault, director of the organisation, said he had seen people photographing their completed ballot papers in what he suggested could show they were fulfilling a ‘contract’ to prove how they had voted.

‘I think when we talk about price, that’s the rubbing point with Republicans…’

Sen. Ted Cruz, a conservative movement star, wants to team up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the rising star among Democratic ’ progressives.

It won’t be easy.

Cruz, a Texas Republican, offered on Twitter to join the New York Democrat on a “simple, clean” bill that would make birth control available for sale over the counter.

Cruz has not elaborated on what a “simple, clean” bill would look like, but Ocasio-Cortez told McClatchy she was concerned that a Republican-backed measure would not include provisions for insurance coverage for over-the-counter birth control.
