Tibetan Activists Join Hong Kong Protesters To Slam China At Brooklyn Nets Game

Tibetan rights activists joined Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters during a game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors Friday night in New York City.

The demonstrators were hoping to use the occasion to highlight China’s draconian response to the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests and the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) tepid reaction to the Chinese crackdown on civil rights in the former British protectorate. They donned t-shirts emblazoned with “Free Tibet” and carried a banner that stated: “Tsai & LeBron: Morey was right, NBA: Stand for freedom,” according to a news release.

Los Angeles Lakers star forward LeBron James has been critical of anyone in the basketball league who has condemned the Chinese suppression.

Although James said in an interview that he is privileged as a sports celebrity to have “a platform” to speak out against things that are “unjust” or “wrong,” he has chosen to not speak out against China’s actions in Hong Kong, saying instead that the NBA should not be ostracizing the communist state due to...

Democrats Seek to Drown Trump in Drama

Back in 1988, one of the greatest movie villains of all time, Hans Gruber, burst onto the screen with a group of murderous thieves, seizing complete control of the Nakatomi Plaza building in Die Hard.

That movie serves as a decent metaphor for what's currently playing out in America. Think of the building itself as America and its hapless occupants as Americans. Gruber and his murderous thugs embody the media-Democrat complex. The group of foolish police and FBI leadership are best understood as NeverTrump and feckless Republicans, with John McClane aligning with President Donald Trump.

The scene that is most interesting relative to today's unfolding events is when a Mitt Romney named Harry Ellis appoints himself to negotiate with Gruber in an attempt to force McClane to surrender.

"Hans, bubby, I'm your white knight," says Ellis, channeling Romney.

McClane refuses to give in, knowing that it will lead only to worse horrors. Ellis chooses poorly and is shot dead for his near comical miscalculation.

Most of the people outside the building, with the exception of one exceptional Twinkie-eating deplorable, blame McClane for the shooting.

This represents the current Democrat strategy. Democrats are running their own version of a hostage scenario, only they've taken a sizable portion of the American public hostage to their eardrum-splitting insanity. Their hope is to create a crushing wave of noise and disruption through the use of bogus impeachment screeds, relentless media attacks, Antifa violence, never-ending investigations, daily Deep State leaks, Intelligence Community hits, strategically placed partisan polls, and the rest of the tactics they are deploying.

That noise becomes overwhelming, which is the point. The never-ending churn is intended to wear out America to where enough voters so desire a return to "normalcy" that they will submit and vote for the Democrat. They are trying to force voters to wave the white flag. Their hope is that drama-exhausted voters will blame President Trump for their misdeeds and pull the lever for the Democrat. The real target of their unquenchable fury is the voters who dare oppose their plans.

It is today's version of the "peace for our time" promise given by Neville Chamberlain. Vote Democrat if you want peace, and the daily tantrums will end. For those who succumb to that lie and value a media-constructed "peace" over liberty, the result will not be very different from what it was the first time, which was betrayal and attempted destruction.

Some voters will follow in Chamberlain's footsteps. Too many Republican pundits routinely whine about how tired and exhausted they are trying to defend President Trump or blame him for the current toxic environment. It's disgraceful. They are adding a veneer of respectability to the Democrats' big lie, which is that President Trump is some kind of special case who justifies the unprecedented assault on him. All the other lies are nested in this one.

The level of attacks would be just as high, if not worse, on any other Republican president. Impeachment hysteria is the new norm with a Republican in the White House. There are plenty of data points that bear this out. People forget the trend line on attacks against Republican national standard-bearers. President George W. Bush was as establishment as they come, never said a bad word against his manifest Democrat attackers, and was not particularly conservative, yet the media-Democrat establishment despises him to this day. Ellen DeGeneres committed the nearly unforgivable sin of not spitting in his face when presented with the opportunity. Leftist hatred evolved to where they carpet-bombed Sarah Palin and her family with unconscionably...

Wish Granted.

Good Riddance.

600 Violations and 38 People Cited in Clinton Email Probe

To end an event-filled political week, the State Department’s completed internal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of her private email was released today. Findings were sent in a letter to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) this week and released today, which found violations by 38 people, “some of whom may face disciplinary action.”

The Associated Press reported: “The investigation, launched more than three years ago, determined that those 38 people were ‘culpable’ in 91 cases of sending classified information that ended up in Clinton’s personal email.” Those 38 people “are current and former State Department officials but were not identified.”

According to Fox News, “the report, dated Sept. 13., was delivered to the office of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa., who was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee until last year.” In the report was a summarized review of the handling of “classified information relating to Clinton’s private email server used during her tenure as the nation’s highest-ranking diplomat between 2009 and 2013.”

In conclusion, the report found:

While the use of a private email system itself did not necessarily increase the likelihood of classified information being transmitted on unclassified systems, those incidents which then resulted in the presence of classified information upon it carried an increased risk of...

Office Vacancies In China Hit Decade High Amid Economic Turmoil

A darkening outlook for China's economy continues to materialize week by week.

New data from commercial property group CBRE warns the country's office vacancy rate has just surged to the highest since the financial crisis of 2007–2008, first reported by Bloomberg.

CBRE said the vacancy rate for commercial office space in 17 major cities rose to 21.5% in 3Q19, a level not seen since the global economy was melting down in 2008.

Sam Xie, CBRE's head of research in China, said the recent "spike" in vacancies is one of the worst since the last financial crisis.

Catherine Chen, Cushman & Wakefield's head of research for Greater China, told Financial Times that soaring commercial office vacancies in China was mainly due to dwindling demand, but not oversupplied conditions.

"Contributing factors included slower expansion of co-working operators and financial services companies, and a general cost-saving strategy adopted by most tenants given ongoing trade tensions and economic growth slowdown," she added.

Henry Chin, head of research for Asia Pacific at CBRE, told Financial Times that macroeconomic headwinds relating to the trade war between the US and China were also a significant factor in rising office vacancies.

As shown in the Bloomberg chart below, using CBRE data, Shanghai and Shenzhen had the highest office vacancies than any other city, and both had around 20% of office spaces dormant.

Hillary Clinton Asked To Leave Costco After Repeatedly Accusing Sample Lady Of Being A Russian Asset

WASHINGTON, D.C.—According to sources at a DC-area Costco, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked to leave Costco again after repeatedly accusing a lady handing out food samples of being a Russian asset.

It wasn't clear how Clinton had ended up in the Costco, as she usually has her servants' servants go to the market for her. Some suggested she wanted to disguise herself and go be among her subjects to see how the other 99% lives.

Whatever the case, the sample lady had apparently offered the failed presidential candidate a small paper cup of orange juice and told her the packs were on sale for $9.49 when the incident occurred.

"Orange... orange like Trump!" Clinton screamed suddenly, frightening the poor food demonstration worker. "You're in league with him, aren't you!?" The failed presidential candidate lunged across the cart and attempted to pull off her face mask, certain the lady was actually Vladimir Putin in a skin suit.

When that failed and the woman shooed her off with a plastic glove, Clinton turned for help and began screaming, "Security! Margaret in the frozen foods aisle is a Russian asset! Help, help, our elections are being meddled with!"

Guards arrived but relaxed when they saw it was just Hillary Clinton. "OK, lady, let's go," they said, grabbing her by each arm.

"Thank goodness you're here!" Clinton cried. "Arrest that woman! Can't someone help me out!?"

"Oh yeah, sure, lady, we'll help you out," the guards said, snickering as they dragged her toward the...

10 Reasons Democrats Shouldn’t Want Joseph Biden Nominated

Even before he announced he was running for president, Joseph Biden was the frontrunner[1] to receive the Democratic National Convention’s nomination for president. If he is successful in this effort that will do away with many worries about the 2020 election. However, only the formerly worried Republicans will be correct to be relieved. Biden’s career and current positions not only put him out of step with the American left wing, but with America in general in ways that will ensure the White House and many offices down ballot remain under Republican control. Moving the party to the left or moving to the center are both tough pills to swallow for the voters and leadership, but choosing Biden is a cyanide tablet. 

10Vote for Disastrous War

When Biden voted on October 2, 2002[2] in favor of the resolution to invade Iraq, no one could have known it was committing the US to a military conflict that would stretch out over seventeen years so far and would leave more than four thousand American soldiers and by some estimates more than a million Iraqi civilians dead. What is known is that his claim of immediately regretting his vote in favor of the resolution does not match his public statements around that time at all. In an interview with CNN[3] on March 19, 2003, he said that everyone in congress should be resolute in their support of the president and the troops, which he considered a single entity. As Politifact[4] reported, nine months after his vote he said “I would vote that way again today.” Whatever your opinion on the cost benefit of the War in Iraq, a 2019 Pew Research Poll[5] found that 62% of civilians felt the war was not worth fighting. The veterans were actually slightly more opposed to it, with 64% feeling it was a mistake. President Trump certainly wasn’t timid in attacking the decision on the campaign trail, calling it the “worst mistake in US history”[6] and calling out Hillary Clinton for also voting in favor of it. It could be Biden’s Achilles heel, except said heel would be the size of Biden’s entire body.

9Sentencing Discrepancy

Much has been made of Biden writing the 1994 crime bill[7] that was a major factor in American mass incarceration through providing grant money to states that had prisoners serve out more of their sentences. Additionally there was his hardline opposition to desegregation bussing, as fellow candidate Kamala Harris pointed out at length. Neither of those were anywhere near as damning as actions he took during the crack epidemic of the 1980s. In 1986, Biden crafted the Anti-Drug Abuse Act[8] which passed with bipartisan approval. The bill was apparently insufficiently reviewed as many were surprised that it included a provision that powder cocaine carried less of a sentence than crack cocaine, and since crack was m uch more prevalent in poor African American communities that led to disproportionate sentences. It was so harmful that in 2002 Biden denounced his own bill and in 2019 his campaign released a plan to belatedly undo some of the stipulations of the Act. As candidate Cory Booker explained during a debate, there are many black communities that are vividly aware of what his bill inflicted on them.

8Defense of Marriage Act Vote

Today gay marriages enjoy sufficient mainstream support that a 2019 Gallup poll[9] said roughly 63% of Americans are fine with them being legal, including 79% of Democrat and 44% of Republican party members. Yet Biden has a very glaring blemish on his voting record regarding LGBT marriage rights. He stood by the problematic vote for more than a decade. On September 21, 1996, the Defense of Marriage Act[10] which had been sponsored by Republican representative Bob Barr went into effect. It banned all same-sex marriage partners from receiving federal benefits. Joe Biden voted for it. Granted, at the time, banning same-sex marriage was popular enough the bill passed the House and the Senate with veto-proof majorities. Still, considering the extent to which his campaign is depending on good will towards the Obama Administration for such measures as the federal legalization of gay marriage, this significantly works against his claims of being a LGBT ally.

7Limited Exposure/Small Crowds

The beginning of several Democratic presidential campaigns in 2019 were marked by large crowds. Kamala Harris had roughly 30,000[11] at her first rally in Oakland, California. Bernie Sanders had 13,000 at a Brooklyn rally in winter weather. Joe Biden’s largest rally was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and it numbered about 6,000. Maximum. Crowds of grassroots supporters are the lifeblood of any major campaign. By May 2019 it was reported that Biden switched from addressing relatively small public crowds to primarily attending big donor fundraising events in what was dubbed a “campaign of limited exposure.”[12] Even before that, in a four week period he only held eleven events, about as many as former candidate Kristen Gillibrand held over a weekend. Hillary Clinton’s[13] 2016 campaign had a similar problem.

6Clarence Thomas Hearings

1991 feels like a lifetime ago. Still it was only in March 2019 that Biden took steps to apologize for something he did at the time. Biden oversaw the hearings for the appointment of Clarence Thomas[14] to the Supreme Court, an event that is largely remembered today for the accusations of sexual harassment against Thomas by Anita Hill. Joseph Biden denied three witnesses corroborating Hill’s testimony time to testify. He was noted for being particularly harsh with Hill, which no doubt helped the extremely conservative judge onto the Supreme Court. Consequently when Biden’s campaign reached out to her when he began his campaign for the presidency, Hill did not accept his apology. If you’re unfamiliar with Clarence Thomas’s rulings and don’t understand why that would be such a big deal for voters today, a single ruling paints a grim picture. For the 2013 case of Shelby County V Holder,[15] the court ruled in a 5-to-4 decision that states and local offices did not need federal approval for changes in voting practices. That meant many districts cut down early voting days, closed hundreds of polling places, and purged many people from voting rolls, a disproportionate number of them minorities. In short, Biden was a significant factor in taking functional voting rights away from countless black people throughout the South. That’s not something those voters are any more likely to forget than they forgot Hillary Clinton’s use of the word “superpredator.”

France says 9/11-inspired attack foiled by intelligence officers

The man was arrested before an attack on Paris police headquarters at the end of September.

France's interior minister has said intelligence officers have foiled a terror plot inspired by the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre in New York City.

According to Le Parisien, he was looking for a weapon to help with hijacking a plane.

The man was charged on 26 September and is suspected of wanting to perpetrate an attack comparable to the events of 11 September, 2001.

The man was arrested before the attack on the Paris police headquarters on 3 October, when an IT specialist with suspected Islamist sympathies and who had security clearances killed three officers and one civilian employee before he was shot dead by another officer.

France's interior minister Christophe Castaner told France 2: "Just before (that attack) there was a 60th attempted attack since 2013.
"An individual who wanted to draw inspiration from 9/11 and planes that destroyed the towers of the World Trade Center (...) was stopped by...

Dr. Strangesсhiff, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Impeachment

Who could have guessed that the words of Soviet secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria to Joseph Stalin, "Show me the man, and I will show you the crime," would be strangely embodied in American politics and jurisprudence in the 21st century? Moreover, according to Dr. Strangesсhiff — congressman, chairman, and commissar — these wonderful words have recently found their way into the U.S. Constitution.

Secret impeachment would seem to be a new idea, but the curious Dr. Strangesсhiff borrowed it from the closed Soviet trials of dissidents, "enemies of the people," and other "undesirable elements."

Bravo, comrade Strangesсhiff! Please, continue the Orange Man trial behind closed doors. After all, the American people are ecstatic about closed hearings without access by journalists or lawyers. They are also especially fond of the removal of the president based on an anonymous gossip-monger, or two, or three. The number of blabbers is not important, since the transcripts of their testimonies will never be published (not because they are not there, but because that is exactly what the intent was).

How familiar...

The impeachment trials by the troika of Strangesсhiff, Loudspeaker, and Jabba-the-Dem take place in the basement of the Lubyanka Capitol. Citizens of the country are not allowed in the basement trial of their president. Secret investigation, followed by a secret court, and then...secret execution. Furthermore, all these actions are in the same basement. In the 21st century, it is the basement of the Capitol.

How familiar...

When presenting the case of impeachment to his committee, Chairman Strangesсhiff used a specially written parody of the conversation between Orange Man and the president of Ukraine instead of the declassified and officially published text. The word "clowning" comes to mind, but the Strangeschiff clan never joke. They deal only with serious anti-American and revolutionary affairs. For example, in 1917, one of Strangeschiff's relatives, a banker, paid all travel expenses for the family idol, communist Leo Trotsky, to move from New York to Russia, where he became one of the leaders of the communist coup. When Trotsky was arrested while crossing the Canadian border, he had 10 thousand dollars on him (about 200 thousand dollars at the current rate).

Nevertheless, the actions of the self-appointed troika are getting funnier every day. Recently, they began to invite witnesses, who at the time of the "committing of the crime" had not been White House employees for a long time. They did not and could not possibly see or hear anything. Excellent selection of witnesses, Comrade Chairman! Anonymous whistlers who refuse to give official testimony are a great contribution to the reputation of the Democratic Party, Comrade Strangesсhiff.

Dr. Strangesсhiff spends public resources on a private, non-governmental, and illegitimate project. There is no formal impeachment process because nobody has voted for it. Therefore, the Strangeschiff troika does not even have the legal authority to subpoena anyone to testify. The other day, the third-rate Loudspeaker once again confirmed that there has not been...

A U.S. Navy Amphibious Assault Ship Just Set Sail with a Whopping 13 Stealth Fighters

The U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship USS America in 2019 has set sail across the Pacific region with no fewer than 13 U.S. Marine Corps F-35B stealth fighters aboard.

The U.S. Navy amphibious assault ship USS America in 2019 has set sail across the Pacific region with no fewer than 13 U.S. Marine Corps F-35B stealth fighters aboard.

The current cruise represents the latest effort by the Navy and Marines to develop procedures and tactics for operating the Navy’s 10 assault ships as light carriers, each packing more aerial firepower than most of the world’s air forces.

As an earlier proof of concept, USS Wasp in March 2019 deployed to the Pacific region with no fewer than 10 F-35Bs aboard. America in May 2019 forward-deployed to Japan, freeing up Wasp to return to the United States for maintenance.

A Navy assault ship usually embarks just six F-35s or older AV-8B Harrier jump jets plus dozens of helicopters. The vessels can increase their fixed-wing component by reducing the number of helicopters. At a minimum, an assault ships needs just a pair of H-60 helicopters for search and rescue.
USS America (LHA-6) F-35B loaded
With 10 Wasp- and America-assault ships each carrying 20 or more F-35s plus another 10 Nimitz-class supercarriers (and new Ford-class supercarriers under construction), the United States possesses at least 20 aircraft carriers.

The USSR's nuclear program receives plans for the United States plutonium bomb from Klaus Fuchs at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

By comparison, China in late 2019 is preparing to commission its second flattop capable of carrying fixed-wing planes. The Chinese fleet aims eventually to field six large carriers.

The Royal Navy meanwhile is working up a two-carrier fleet. France, Russia and India each have one carrier. Italy and Spain both operate assault ships carrying Harrier jump jets. Japan and South Korea have announced plans to modify their own assault ships to be compatible with F-35Bs.

The carrier-disparity underscores the sheer size and power of the U.S. fleet.

The idea of a “Lightning carrier” has been years in the making. For years the normal air wing for the Navy's eight Wasp-class assault ships has included around 10 MV-22 tiltrotor transports, four AH-1Z attack helicopters, four UH-1Y light helicopters, five CH-53E heavylift helicopters and just six fighters, plus a couple of Navy H-60s for search and rescue.

But the L-class Wasps were capable of trading helicopters for fighters. During the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, four assault ships each embarked up to 20 Harriers in order to contribute to the coalition air campaign.

"This is not the norm for an amphib," Senior Chief Aviation Boatswain's Mate Wynn Young, leading chief petty officer of USS Bonhomme Richard's air department, in 2003 told a Navy reporter. "Our air assets dictate that we operate more like a carrier."

As the Marines began replacing old AV-8Bs and other jets with "fifth-generation" F-35s, planners dusted off the "Harrier carrier" concept and rebranded it as the “Lightning carrier." Other naval experts simply refer to the Harrier and Lightning carriers as "light carriers."

"By 2025, the Marine Corps will operate 185 F-35Bs—enough to equip all seven L-Class ships," the Marines Corps explained in its 2017 aviation strategy. In fact, the Navy expects to operate at least 10 L-class ships, including the Wasps and newer...

Trump in Texas: Left Wants to Install Justices Who Will ‘Shred the Constitution’

President Donald Trump said at a campaign rally on Thursday in Dallas, Texas, that Democrats and the left want to change the makeup of the United States Supreme Court to destroy the Constitution.

“They want to install far left judges to shred the Constitution,” Trump said at the rally that attracted 20,000 people inside the America Airlines Center and thousands more outside the venue.

Trump also mentioned the left’s failed attack on now Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, calling it “the disgusting smearing of a fine man — Justice Kavanaugh,” Trump said.

Trump’s remarks about the left trying to pack the court with activist judges who don’t believe in the originalist view of the Constitution comes just days after the left-wing group Demand Justice released a list of the individuals it hoped would be nominated for a seat on the High Court.

The 32-person list includes people working for groups like Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Durham investigation into origins of 2016 Trump campaign surveillance expands its scope

EXCLUSIVE – John Durham, the U.S. attorney reviewing the origins of the 2016 counterintelligence investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, is probing a wider timeline than previously known, according to multiple senior administration officials.

Fox News previously reported that Durham would be reviewing the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.

However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.

Attorney General Bill Barr and Durham traveled to Italy recently to talk to law enforcement officials there about the probe and have also had conversations with officials in the U.K. and Australia about the investigation, according to multiple sources familiar with the meetings.

Certain segments of the intelligence community and the Democratic Party are 'scared to death' of what U.S. Attorney John Durham will find, says Fox News contributor Sol Wisenberg, former deputy independent counsel.

Barr assigned Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, back in May to conduct the inquiry into alleged misconduct and improper surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016, as well as whether Democrats were the ones who'd improperly colluded with foreign actors.

The attorney "is gathering information from numerous sources, including a number of foreign countries. At Attorney General Barr’s request, the president has contacted other countries to ask them to introduce the attorney general and Mr. Durham to appropriate officials," Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said last month.

Durham, known as a "hard-charging, bulldog" prosecutor, according to a source, has been focusing on the use and assignments of FBI informants, as well as alleged improper issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants. Durham was asked to help Barr to "ensure that intelligence collection activities by the U.S. government related to the Trump 2016 presidential campaign were lawful and appropriate."

Democrats increasingly have targeted Barr. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said late last month that Barr has "gone rogue," alleging an attempted "cover-up" of...
