[Before It's News] The mysterious events surrounding Mena Airfield in remote western Arkansas during the gubernatorial reign of Bill Clinton have teased the popular imagination for more than three decades. Movies have been made, books have been published, hundreds of articles have been written. Many of the more baroque allegations emerge from the fever swamps of conspiracy theorists, but certain facts are indisputable. CIA and DEA activities flowed out of Mena in the Clinton years. Cocaine‐a lot of it‐flowed in. And for thirty years, every attempt to get to the bottom of events at Mena‐federal, state, judicial, journalistic‐has failed. As will all future attempts also.
Judicial Watch has launched a new campaign for answers. The CIA "stonewalled the release of information now sought by Judicial Watch on the Mena Airport controversy," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. So last month, we filed a lawsuit seeking a long-hidden report by the CIA inspector general into events at Mena. The Judicial Watch lawsuit seeks the report of a November 1996 CIA investigation into "drug running, money laundering and intelligence gathering" at Mena. We’re taking other steps, too‐Freedom of Information actions against the DEA, FBI, and Arkansas state institutions.
Is Mena finally going to be exposed after lying dormant since the 1990s? Is the drug money going to be followed? If so, many office-holders will be exposed. It won't just be one party. Thank you Judicial Watch--doing the job that Congress should have.
[Real Clear Politics] Victor Davis Hanson said former special counsel Robert Mueller was oblivious when he testified to the House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. Hanson said his testimony confirmed that he was just a figurehead and being used by a partisan group who "hijacked his conservative name."
"All this Bob Mueller reputation was not proved by any reality," Hanson told FOX News' Laura Ingraham. "Anything he said to the public or any meetings he had with the Trump legal team, who were supposedly not as educated, not as Ivy League as the dream team, the all-stars, the pros that we were told. And yet an actual performance and actual meritocratic barometers of effectiveness, the Trump team outfoxed them. They were better lawyers."
Hanson said Mueller was supposed to make something illegitimate look legitimate and make a "partisan progressive project" look conservative. In the end, Hanson said, Mueller and his team weren't able to prove anything other than a "thought crime."
"He didn't produce documents, he didn't fire anybody. So what are we left with in the end, the Democrats in the committee were talking about a thought crime. It's not against the law to think things. That's a Soviet Orwellian tradition, that's not an American jurisprudence tradition," Hanson said.
"Bob Mueller reputation was supposed to do two things. It was supposed to put an imprimatur of legitimacy on something that was illegitimate, and it was supposed to make a partisan progressive project look like it was conservative," Hanson said.
[Conservative Review] Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained that the only takeaway from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional hearing is that the real author of the 400-page Mueller report appears to be Andrew Weissmann.
"I want to thank the Democrat Party today for this hearing ‐ actually two hearings," Levin said. "I want to thank them, because they just killed impeachment. See, this was an impeachment trial. They used to call them ’the best and the brightest.’ Now they’re the worst and the dumbest. Unbelievable. Robert Mueller. I’m not going to mock him, as they would mock him if he were testifying for the other side, but what you saw today ... was a fraud, a ruse, that has been perpetrated against the American people. There is no Mueller report. It’s a Weissmann report. There is no Mueller special counsel. It was the Weissmann special counsel. Weissmann. And this little bastard ‐ that’s right, I said it! ‐ Weissmann, who destroyed Arthur Andersen and 80,000 jobs ‐ in a 9-0 decision, Supreme Court, that reversed him on this very issue of obstruction of justice. He’s the invisible hand that’s been behind the whole damn thing, from day one. ... This wasn’t a special counsel office; this wasn’t an office of prosecutors. This was an office of Democrat activists who happen to be attorneys in the government. And they had the power to use criminal law and processes and tools to advance a political agenda, even though they failed. That’s why they were so hot to get Manafort."
Fucking Weissmann had a slam dunk case against Enron and because he was such a conniving worm, hiding exculpatory information and twisting testimony, that many of the defendants got off on appeal, when, if he had played it straight, would have gotten a good conviction.
The evidence of manipulation and fraud at Enron was ill-refutable but he screwed it up because he is an unethical slimeball.
[The Texas Tribune] NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico ‐ It was the first phone call to his family back in Honduras since crossing the Texas-Mexico border, and Olvin Alexander Buezo had bad news.
He wasn’t in the United States as expected. His 7-year-old son would not be attending elementary school this fall in Foley, Alabama. There would be no good-paying U.S. job to finance the $6,000 debt he incurred to pay their smuggler.
"I already told [my uncle] to sell everything," Buezo said during the brief but somber phone call to his wife on Tuesday. Their small "farm" ‐ less than three acres ‐ would have to go.
"There’s no other way," he said. "The important thing is to get back home alive in Honduras." By Thursday, Buezo was already in southern Mexico, on the way back home after abandoning his asylum claim.
He wasn’t alone. On two recent afternoons this week at a Mexican migrant processing facility in Nuevo Laredo, dozens of Central Americans were asked by The Texas Tribune to raise their hands if they wanted to return to their countries of origin. Nearly all of them did.
They had just been marched across an international bridge from Laredo into Nuevo Laredo under the nascent "remain in Mexico" program. They said Mexican authorities gave them a choice: fend for themselves in the rough-and-tumble border town or board a chartered bus for a free ride to bustling Monterrey a few hours south. As night approached, dozens were opting for the safety of the bus over the mean streets of Nuevo Laredo, getting on board in the same clothes they had on when they crossed the border and carrying the asylum paperwork they got on the other side.
Many won’t be coming back. Though U.S. immigration officials had given them a "notice to appear" in coming weeks for asylum hearings at a yet-to-be-completed courthouse near the Rio Grande in Laredo, many said they’re giving up and returning home to avoid becoming sitting ducks for the local drug cartels or winding up deeper in debt for an ever-decreasing chance of gaining entry to the United States.
Two very critical ideas he introduced like a virus into the political give-and-take. Firstly, he word 'enemy', clearly dividing society into adversarial hostility over rigid ideologies where politics should entail uniting to cooperate and compromise for the best possible outcomes for the most people. The other was Ridicule, the 5th rule. Describing it he says it's super-powerful because it's irrational. In that, he injects irrationality into an activity that is concerned with life and death decisions of polity and law. Greater mischief has no man committed, I think.
Of course, many in the radical Right also draw inspiration from this shit, but they are the sort who having no root in themselves are drawn to 'whatever works'.
[Jpost] In October 1980, US president Jimmy Carter ...only the second worst president ever... was eight points ahead in the Gallup Polls. Things were not going well for Republican candidate Ronald Reagan. He had a series of gaffes, i.e., claiming that Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, had eliminated its smog; that trees polluted as much as cars; and that Alaska possessed more oil than Soddy Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face... Reagan had become bogged down in many controversies regarding everything from Taiwan to Vietnam, the Ku Klux Klan, the stealth bomber program and more. He confused facts and figures constantly. It appeared that Jimmy Carter would easily win a second term despite the issues with his administration that had upset the American people.

Donald Trump is not Jimmy Carter. Iran had best focus on building their own country. First, they need to dump the Mad Mullahs who are enriching themselves. Obama abetted this by sending pallets of U.S. cash to Iran. Mad Mullahs must be Democrats.
[DAWN] The atheistic Nehru brought to India an acceptance of Europe ...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum... an modernity. For this Hindutva hates him even more than it hates India’s Moslems and Christians. Still, his insistence on ’scientific temper’ ‐ a singularly odd phrase invented while he was still in prison ‐ made India nurture science. Earlier, vigorous reformers like Raja Ram Mohan Roy (1772-1833) had shown the path. As long as Nehru stood tall no rishi, yogi, or army general could head a science institution
Will Pakistain also get a slice of the moon? That depends upon the quality of our scientists and if a culture of science develops. Of course, Pakistain never had a Nehru. A further setback happened in the Zia ul Haq
