Tiny Mike Bloomberg Buys His Way Onto Nevada Debate Stage; Releases ‘AOC-Lite’ Tax Scheme – Zero Hedge

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg qualified on Tuesday to participate in this week’s Democratic presidential debate in Nevada, which will take place in Las Vegas Wednesday night.

Bloomberg has vowed to leverage his fortune to defeat President Donald Trump, who has already raised a campaign war chest that dwarfs the money raised by the other Democratic rivals.

As Tom Steyer demonstrated during the pre-Iowa debate, it seems that money can buy you anything in America: even a spot on the debate stage.

The media mogul has a net worth of $64 billion, and has openly said he will spend $1 billion or more to defeat President Trump.

Bloomberg received 19% of the support from an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, which guaranteed him a spot on the debate stage in Las Vegas on Wednesday…

Gropey Joe’s Degenerate, Coke-Head Son Was On Board Of Trade Coalition That Lobbied Obama Regime On Ukraine Aid – Daily Caller

Hunter Biden was on the board of a trade coalition that lobbied the Obama administration in 2014 on foreign assistance to Ukraine, and appears to have set up a State Department meeting for the group’s president.

Biden’s links to the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) and its affiliate, the Center for U.S. Global Leadership, have gone largely unreported in the coverage of his various business dealings, which have caused a headache for his father as he runs for president.

The Bidens have been dogged by allegations that the younger Biden profited off of his last name. Similar allegations have followed organizations like Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, which brought Hunter Biden on as a director in April 2014, despite his having no experience in the energy industry.

USGLC, which lobbies and advocates for increased spending in the State Department’s International Affairs Budget, added a series of Ukraine-related bills to its lobbying portfolio at around the same time, lobbying disclosures show…

According to Ben Fischer of Sports Business Daily, the XFL welcomed 76,285 fans to their games this weekend, a 9.5 percent increase from Week 1.

In a major defeat for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and fellow Democrats in the commonwealth, the Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee voted to not move forward with HB961, the “assault weapons” ban and magazine confiscation bill, on Monday for the rest of the year.

In a 10-5 vote, with four Democrats joining the Republicans, Committee voted to for a crime commission to study the bill to see if it is worth pursing next year. The bill would have banned AR-15s and other similar styles of rifles and banned being able to own magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.

When the bill failed to pass, cheers erupted and some, including law enforcement officers, stood up in celebration. Virginia Delegate Mark Levine, who helped passed the bill in the House, and his collegues in the front row were seen to be very disappointed.

The majority in the committee room were pro-Second Amendment activists, with a few gun control supporters in attendance as well…

Tiny Mike Bloomberg Turns 78 As Top DemoNazi Candidates Near 80 – Breitbart

Former New York City Mayor and presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg (D) celebrated his 78th birthday on Friday, emphasizing the increasing reality that the top tier of Democrat candidates is inching toward 80 years of age.

Bloomberg, born February 14, 1942, turned 78 on Friday. Now that recent national polls – as reflected in the RealClearPolitics average – show the billionaire in the top tier of Democrat candidates, one can officially say that three septuagenarians are the front-runners in the Democrat primary race.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who leads the field with an average of 23.6 percent support, will turn 79 in September and, if he scores the Democrat nomination and goes on to win the presidency, would turn 80 during his first year in office. Former Vice President Joe Biden (D), who is currently in second place with 19.2 percent support, will turn 78 later this year.

A New Hampshire man was arrested Thursday for an incident in which he’s accused of assaulting a 15-year-old boy earlier this week during the state’s presidential primary.

Virginia House DemoNazis Pass Unconstitutional “Assault Weapons” Ban – Zero Hedge

The House of Representatives in the state of Virginia is quickly ramming liberal legislation down the throats of innocent people. They have passed an “assault weapons” ban, which would criminalize thousands of people who haven’t committed a crime.

On Tuesday, Democrats continued their quest to disarm the civilians and advocate for a series of gun control measures in what has become the epicenter of the nationwide gun debate.

The 51-48 vote in the House of Delegates moves H.B. 961 (the assault weapons ban) to the state Senate. Passage among senators could be in jeopardy, however, as Democrats only have a two-seat majority, meaning they can only afford to lose one vote should all the Republicans oppose the bill. But don’t assume it’s passage won’t happen. Taking away guns is essential for tyranny. But the propaganda is all about safety:

This legislation, just like other bills passed by the House this year, is intended to make Virginians safer every day,” House Democrats said in a statement after the vote. -Fox News…

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Illinois’ Eastern Division Thursday morning, and was described by his attorneys as the “first of multiple actions in the wake of historic” Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuse.

“This is a first step to ensure that the full extent of the FISA abuse that has occurred during the last few years is exposed and remedied,” attorney John Pierce said Thursday…

Eight Reasons Why Trump Will Be Reelected – David Catron

Next November, when most voters are trying to forget the partisan antics of President Trump’s impeachment, they will decide his fate based on the same criteria they always use to determine if a president deserves reelection.

Committed Republicans will vote for Trump, of course, and committed Democrats will vote against him. But party loyalists are about evenly split among only 54 percent of the electorate.

Fully 45 percent of Americans now identify as Independents, and their votes will hinge on more pragmatic concerns. This is good news for the president. A new Gallup survey shows very significant increases in public satisfaction on eight key issues since Trump took office:

Gallup records double-digit increases in public satisfaction with the nation’s economy, security from terrorism, military strength and the state of race relations.

Satisfaction is also up by between six and nine points on crime…

Tennessee State Rep Submits Bill To Officially Categorize CNN, WaPo As ‘Fake News’ – Daily Caller

Republican Tennessee State Rep. Micah Van Huss filed a bill Wednesday in the state’s General Assembly that would explicitly label media outlets The Washington Post and CNN as “fake news” and condemn them for “denigrating our citizens.”

“A RESOLUTION to recognize CNN and The Washington Post as fake news and condemn them for denigrating our citizens,” the bill’s summary reads. “I’ve filed HJR 779 on behalf of a constituency that’s tired of fake news and Republicans who don’t fight,” Van Huss wrote on his Facebook page.

The bill’s text cites several instances where The Washington Post and CNN have drawn a “line between Trump opponents and Trump supporters” by asserting without evidence or definition that Trump’s supporters are “cultists,” such as when a CNN guest “suggested that Trump supporters belong to a cult and that our president is using mind control.”

Convicted Child Molester Let Out Of Prison Because He/She/It Is “Transgender”, And No Longer A Threat, Iowa Officials Say – Daily Wire

A convicted sex offender is being let out of prison in Iowa because they identify as a woman and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office says that the transgender criminal is no longer a threat because they have different hormones.

The Storm Lake Times reported that Joseph Matthew Smith, a 23-year-old convicted of molesting a fellow MCS student in 2014, also molested up to 15 kids, according to a report prepared by the state.

“A preliminary report prepared by the state’s expert, Dr. Jeffrey Davis, says Smith molested as many as 15 victims, ranging from ages 1 to 13, before being sentenced to prison in December 2015,” The Storm Lake Times reported.

“The report found the likelihood of re-offending within five years of release exceeded 20% because victims were of both genders, and because Smith was under age 25 and never had a long-term relationship.”…

Why Criminal Prosecution Might Be The Least Of Ilhan Omar’s Legal Concerns – Matthew Kolken

The Department of Justice has reportedly assigned an FBI special agent to work with Immigration and Customs and Enforcement and the Department of Education Inspector General Charge to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for alleged criminal violations relating to perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, federal student loan fraud, and bigamy.

As an immigration lawyer, the very first question that came to mind when I read these reports was what immigration consequences, if any, could attach in the event that any of the above allegations are proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

My analysis, unfortunately, has resulted in more unanswerable questions than definitive answers.

Investigators determined that two vehicles were traveling southbound on Temescal Canyon when the driver of a white Infiniti, later identified as 42-year-old Anurag Chandra, of Corona, intentionally struck the Prius, causing it to slam into a tree, the CHP said.

Only Person Arrested At Virginia Gun Rights Rally Was A Mask-Wearing LGBT Activist – Big League Politics

Pillowcase Rapist: Registered Sex Offender Caught Decades After Attacking More Than 40 Women – Crime Online

According to the Miami Herald, Robert Koehler, 60, was recently accused of sexually assaulting at least 44 women from South Miami to Deerfield Beach between May 1981 and February 1986. The then-unidentified suspect was dubbed the “Pillowcase Rapist” because he allegedly used a pillowcase, shirt or towel to conceal his identity during the attacks.

All but one of the victims lived in a townhouse or apartment. The suspect reportedly gained entry through unlocked sliding doors or windows and threatened the victims with a knife. He sometimes stole money during the assaults, according to the news outlet.

Refugee-Loving France Sees Surge Of Rape, Murder, And Violence In 2019 – Breitbart

“The plaintiffs claim that the government has violated their constitutional rights, including a claimed right under the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment to a ‘climate system capable of sustaining human life.’ The central issue before us is whether, even assuming such a broad constitutional right exists, an Article III court can provide the plaintiffs the redress they seek – an order requiring the government to develop a plan to ‘phase out fossil fuel emissions and draw down excess atmospheric CO2,'” Judge Andrew Hurwitz wrote in the opinion on the case Juliana v.

Trumpanomics: New Jobless Claims Fall For 5th Straight Week Amid U.S. Labor Market Strength – Epoch Times

The number of initial jobless claims – a measure of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits – fell for the fifth straight week in early January, pointing to ongoing labor market strength.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell by 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 204,000 for the week ended Jan. 11, the Labor Department said on Thursday (pdf). Economists polled by Reuters expected claims would rise to 216,000 in the latest week, while those surveyed by MarketWatch forecast an even higher print of 220,000.

The better-than-expected initial claims figures are an encouraging sign for the U.S. economy, which saw slowing job growth in December. The U.S. economy created 145,000 jobs last month after adding 256,000 positions in November, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said.

Earlier this week, on Christmas Eve, an order from the city of Cleveland was posted on the door of the Denison Avenue United Church of Christ, demanding that they kick out the homeless people that they had been allowing to sleep on their property or face losing their status with the city as a religious organization.

The order came from the Cleveland Division of Fire, citing code violations that they claim are dangerous for the inhabitants.

The city is following the letter of the law, in this case suggesting that it is illegal to change the official use of the building without first filling out the required paperwork and making significant changes to the property.

According to the city’s building department, for the church to give shelter to homeless people, they would need to go through a costly process of not only updating the building but also getting the required permits and licenses that would designate the building as a homeless shelter.

Time To Investigate Real Russian Colluder Nancy Pelosi – Judi McLeod

Something not-so-funny happened on the way to the Russian Collusion accusations that dominate the politics of our day. And it happened between 2010 and 2016.

In June of 2010, federal prosecutors within the F.B.I. accused 11 people of being part of a Russian espionage ring, during a major sting operation.

After years of surveillance, the 11 were caught “living under false names and deep cover in a patient scheme to penetrate what one coded message called American “policy making circles.” (New York Times, June 28, 2010).

“An F.B.I. investigation that began at least seven years ago culminated with the arrest on Sunday of 10 people in Yonkers, Boston and northern Virginia.

Magic Wand Update: Working Class Secures Largest Wage Hikes Thanks To Tight Labor Market – Breitbart

The bottom 25 percent of American wage earners secured the largest wage hikes year-to-year compared to all others for November, newly released data reveals, thanks to President Trump’s tightening of the United States labor market.

Data from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta shows that for the lowest wage earners, Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” economy has delivered the quickest rate of wage hikes in more than a decade.

In November, the bottom 25 percent of wage earners saw their wages rise 4.5 percent compared to November 2018.

These bottom-tier workers, those earning less than all other Americans, have secured a labor market that now resembles the labor market of top-tier workers – a result of less low-skilled foreign competition against Americans through increased interior immigration enforcement.

Overall wage growth year-to-year stands at about 3.6 percent…

Socialist Hellhole Update: Venezuelans Resort To Renting Funeral Caskets – Daily Wire

At one time, Maracaibo had a population of more than 2,000,000 people, and was considered one of the most prosperous cities in Venezuela, formerly the richest country in South America. But after years of socialist rule at the hands of dictator Nicholas Maduro, many residents can’t even afford to give their deceased family members a proper burial.

According to The Associated Press, residents of Maracaibo who don’t have enough money to purchase a funeral casket, which can cost as much as $300, have begun resorting to a range of morbid alternatives, including burying relatives in pieces of wooden furniture or renting caskets from funeral homes.

Since renting a casket can cost as little as $50, many residents find this method of honoring the dead more financially feasible, reports the news agency.

During the rental process, the family doesn’t actually bury the body, but instead returns the casket to the funeral home, where it can be rented again, and then sends the body out to be cremated…

On 21 October 2016, for example, Politico published a report quoting several economists who were sure – sure! – that Trump would singlehandedly destroy the stock market. Dartmouth College’s Eric Zitzewitz explained:

“Wall Street clearly prefers a Clinton win certainly from the prospective of equity prices,” he said. “You saw Clinton win the first debate and her odds jumped and stocks moved right along with it. Should Trump somehow manage to win you could see major Brexit-style selling.”

Oh yes, Politico went on to say, according to a report by economists, “the stock market [would be] worth 11 percent more under a Clinton presidency than a Trump presidency.”…

FBI Documents Suggest Link Between Satanic ‘Finders’ Cult And CIA, Investigation Cover-Up – Big League Politics

Last month, the FBI released over 300 pages relating to decades-old investigations into the “Finders.”

Analysis of the eye-opening documents, which include police reports and correspondence between various agencies, reveals that the group was a satanic cult and suggests deliberate obstruction of justice by feds and the CIA, which is all the more relevant in light of the recent attention to sexual and child abuse scandals connected with the rich and powerful, and the shady history of U.S. Deep State intelligence agencies.

The story began in 1987 in Tallahassee, Florida, with the arrest of two men traveling with six children aged 2-11, who stated they were on their way to a school for “brilliant” children in Mexico. The men were uncooperative with police, and the children were dirty, very hungry, without underwear, had bug bites, and seemed unused to modern technology like plumbing.

At the time, around 1,500 people were evacuated from the village in Derbyshire when a dam wall at the nearby Toddbrook Reservoir was damaged.

Many people began to mock her hairstyle across Twitter prompting her to take a break from the social media platform. Ms Swann said the reaction to her hair reflected wider issues with social media.

Thousands Of Tractor-Driving Farmers Block Berlin Roads To Protest Government Policies – NewsMax

Thousands of tractors are heading into Berlin as farmers protest the German government’s agricultural policies.

Police say some 5,000 tractors and 10,000 farmers are expected for Tuesday’s protest against planned environmental protection regulations they say are overly restrictive.

Demonstrators plan to block wide areas of the capital with a slow-moving convoy of the tractors, which were gathering at the landmark Brandenburg Gate.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Cabinet in September decided on a series of proposals including tighter restrictions on the use of pesticides and herbicides to protect insects, and on fertilizers to protect groundwater.

Farmers say the government should work with them and conservation groups to find ways to protect the environment while preserving the competitiveness of farms.

Merkel’s invited leaders of the movement to talks at the start of December…

Supreme Court Temporarily Blocks House DemoNazis From Receiving Trump’s Financial Records – Epoch Times

The U.S. Supreme Court granted President Donald Trump’s request on November 25, to temporarily block House access to his financial records.

The country’s high court announced (pdf) that it had granted Trump’s emergency stay to block a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee to require his accountants, Mazars USA, to turn over the records. There was no noted dissent from the court’s unsigned order. The president now has until December 5 to formally file a full appeal of the lower court’s ruling.

Congressional Democrats had subpoenaed the New York accounting firm to produce the records in April. In October, a lower court ruled that the committee had the authority to subpoena the records from Mazars while the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected Trump’s request earlier this month to reconsider the lower court’s decision.

The House Oversight Committee has argued that Trump’s case was too weak to earn a delay from the court…

President Trump Signs Bill Making Animal Cruelty A Federal Crime – The Hill

President Trump signed a bill into law Monday establishing animal cruelty as a federal crime after the measure passed with bipartisan support through Congress.

The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act defines the term as any conduct in which an animal “is purposely crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury.”

A Simple Proof Of Intelligent Design – Robert Arvay

One of the biggest, and most consequential, debates in science is the question of whether the universe, and the life it harbors, are intelligently designed, or whether we all exist only by random chance. Many minds far greater than mine have debated the matter pro and con for years. I have the audacity to propose a simple theorem that will put the matter to rest. Here it is:

Randomness can operate only within nonrandom parameters.

The truth of that utterance is manifold, and its implications are all-embracing. Acceptance or rejection of that simple statement decides whether we, as a society, accept moral principles that cannot possibly come from the human mind, but only from the Supreme Being.

Although this very brief commentary cannot encompass all the complexities, let us nevertheless begin with the manifold layers of proof, and then proceed to the implications. To start us off, here is a trick question, using a pair of dice as the example. Rolling a single die from the pair, what are the chances of the die-roll “landing a six?”…

FBI: Over 5 Times More Killed With Knives Than Rifles – Breitbart

FBI crime stats for 2018 show over five times as many people were killed with knives and/or other cutting instruments than were killed with rifles. The FBI data shows a total 1,515 deaths by knives and/or other cutting instruments vs. 297 deaths by rifle in 2018.

This means the gap between murders with knives vs. murders with rifles has grown since 2017, for which FBI stats showed nearly four times as many stabbed to death as killed with rifles. The number of murders with a rifle hovered around 400 for the year 2017, then dropped to 297 in 2018.

Ironically, over 100 more people were killed with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles in 2018.

It must be noted that the category of rifle includes all kinds of rifles, not just bolt action or semiautomatic, not just pump or lever action. So the gap between knife homicides and rifle homicides or hammer/club homicides and rifle homicides would be even larger if contrasted only with semiautomatic rifles, versus rifles of all kinds…
