Burning and looting of America Not A Democrat Priority But Unsubstantiated Russian Rumors Are

"And the Department of Defense, through Chief Pentagon Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman, said that"[t]o date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports.

"It's not clear whether the denials that the president had been briefed mean the intelligence never appeared in the President's Daily Brief or that the issue was never brought up to the president personally, and seemingly conflicting information going public has muddied the issue of just how sure the government is that Russia has put bounties on American troops in Afghanistan.

The White House has also denied that the issue was ever flagged to Vice President Pence.

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was not one of the Democrats attending the Tuesday morning briefing at the White House, but on Monday said that she spoke with Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel about the bounty allegations.

Pelosi did not say in a statement what they told her, but said that she called on the intelligence community leaders "To follow up on my formal request for a full House briefing on the intelligence surrounding Russian bounties."

"Pelosi added:"Many serious questions remain regarding what the White House is doing to address threats to American and allied troops and to hold Russia accountable.

The inconvenient question neither querulous Dems nor mainstream and social media aren't asking, is if the New York Times knew about the Russian bounty allegations back in March, why did they wait until now to release them?

DNC Stunningly Tweets Trump Celebrating 4th of July at Mount Rushmore is "Glorifying White Supremacy"

The anti-American Democrat National Committee has now officially gone on record that cebrating 4th of July at Mount Rushmore is "Glorifying white supremacy."

The Democrats just referred to Independence Day as white supremacy https://t.

To Democrats EVERYTHING is about white supremacy and race hustling.

The Democrats think Mt Rushmore is a display of white supremacy.

The Democratic Party's plan to run on a "Mount Rushmore is racist" platform was truly innovative.

Maybe the Democrats' social media manager meant to tweet that hot take from his Antifa account.

Democrats have morphed from a political party into a terrorist group that wants to destroy everything special about America.

Qatar Hired Former CIA Agents to Hack Prominent GOP Official

Qatar hired a team of former CIA and U.S. military intelligence officials to conduct a hack attack on a prominent American political activist after he raised questions about the country's support for terrorism, according to allegations in a new lawsuit.

Republican financier Elliott Broidy alleges that Qatar enlisted former U.S. intelligence officials to carry out a 2018 cyber espionage operation on his personal and business email servers.

The suit reveals allegations that U.S.-based hackers affiliated with the Global Risk Advisors consulting group were paid by Qatar to carry out the illicit scheme and similar attacks on prominent critics of Qatar.

The filing marks another salvo in a long-running legal dispute between Broidy and Qatar, which is accused of orchestrating multiple hack attacks on its most prominent U.S. and European critics.

In addition to the quarrel with Broidy, Qatar is believed to be behind a series of similar cyber attacks on prominent GOP and Jewish community activists who have pressured the Trump administration to cut ties with Doha.

Qatar has long been suspected of financing the hack on Broidy and other leading critics of Doha's terror financing network, which includes support for Hamas and other Iranian-backed militia groups.

Qatar is said to have hired the organization as part of a "Criminal enterprise" to penetrate Broidy's online networks and collect confidential data.

Sidney Powell: Obama 'takedown' prevented Flynn from exposing CIA corruption

Amid new evidence of the direct involvement of President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in the prosecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the onetime national security adviser's lawyer is putting a spotlight on one of the likely motives.

Sidney Powell disclosed in an interview that Flynn was prepared to expose massive corruption by U.S. intelligence agencies under Obama, led by then-CIA Director John Brennan.

Flynn previously withdrew his plea of guilty to a charge of lying to FBI agents in the Russia-collusion probe after evidence surfaced that he had been the victim of a "Perjury trap." Unsealed notes show FBI agents plotting to get Flynn to lie so he could be prosecuted.

Obama tapped Flynn in 2012 to serve as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012.

"They've lost sight of who they actually work for," Flynn said of the CIA in October 2015.

WND reported last week that newly released handwritten notes by fired FBI investigator Peter Strzok show Obama and Biden had a direct role in the prosecution of Flynn.

Strzok - memorializing a Jan. 4, 2017, meeting in the Oval Office regarding Flynn's phone call with Russian Ambassador Kislyak - said that Biden wanted to invoke the Logan Act against Flynn and that Obama ordered the investigation.

EU Extends Ban On US Travelers, Lifts Restrictions On China, Canada, & Rwanda

Confirming what has been leaked, rumored for weeks, European Union officials have confirmed this morning that the bloc will extend its travel ban for US residents.

In the same decision, the EU will lift travel restrictions for Chinese residents as of July 1, on the condition that Beijing confirms that the same applies to EU citizens.

Bloomberg reports that the EU judgment, which is non-binding on member states, recommends that visitors only be allowed into the bloc from countries where the average number of infections per 100,000 inhabitants over the past two weeks is similar or below the level of the EU and that the trend of new cases is declining.

In addition to China, residents of the following countries are set to be allowed to travel to Europe as of July 1: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.

New Flu Virus With "Pandemic Potential" Emerges In China

Roughly half a million Chinese living in Hebei Province, a province in northern China that surrounds Beijing are under lockdown, but in an effort to try to convey just how prepared Chinese public health officials are for another outbreak they've warned every English-language media outlet that will listen that officials have identified another potentially pandemic-quality flu pathogen.

According to the BBC, Chinese scientists have identified a new strain of flu that has "The potential to become a pandemic".

In theory, a flu pandemic could occur at any time, but they are still rare events.

Pandemics happen if a new strain emerges that can easily spread from person to person.

Although flu viruses are constantly changing - which is why the flu vaccine also needs to change regularly to keep up - they do not usually go pandemic.

Prof James Wood, head of the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge, said the work "Comes as a salutary reminder" that we are constantly at risk of new emergence of pathogens, and that farmed animals, with which humans have greater contact than with wildlife, may act as the source for important pandemic viruses.

WHO SPOKESMAN SAYS CHINA STUDY ON NEW VIRUS IN PIGS SHOWS "WE CANNOT LET OUT GUARD DOWN" ON INFLUENZA DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC. But before we get carried away speculating about this new pandemic, how about we first figure out how things went so badly wrong during the early days of the last one?

"32,000 Christians Butchered to Death": The Persecution of Christians, May 2020

From January 2020 to mid-May 2020, Muslim terrorists massacred at least 620 Christians.

"Militant Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram ... have intensified their anti-Christian violence ... with hacking to death in the past four months and half of 2020 of no fewer than 620 defenseless Christians, and wanton burning or destruction of their centers of worship and learning. The atrocities against Christians have gone unchecked and risen to alarming apogee with the country's security forces and concerned political actors looking the other way or colluding with the Jihadists. Houses burnt or destroyed during the period are in their hundreds; likewise dozens of Christian worship and learning centers."

The report further states that, since 2009, "Not less than 32,000 Christians have been butchered to death by the country's main Jihadists."

"The Christian community there reportedly protested against the violation and tried to stop the vandalism. However, they were allegedly threatened with guns... [A]ll graves that were destroyed had crosses fixed on the top... [S]ome of the houses occupied by the Christians were demolished and people were forced to flee from their homes. Amid widespread discrimination against the Christian community in Pakistan, the properties owned by the minorities are often subjected to injustice including land grabbing and being the target of criminals. Moreover, the economic disparities and religious bias in Pakistan's judiciary have increased the struggles Christians face to recover the lost land."

Egypt: On May 30, 2020 - two days before President Trump recognized Global Coptic Day - Egyptian authorities demolished the only Coptic church in village of Koum al-Farag, even though it had stood for 15 years and served 3,000 Christians.

The Christian community in Algeria denounces... the intimidation which the faithful are subject to. Many Christians have denounced the series of closings of churches in the national territory. Several evangelical associations and organizations have called for an end to 'the increasing pressure and intimidation from the Algerian government.'".

While not all, or even most, Muslims are involved, persecution of Christians by extremists is growing.

Barack Obama Can't Stop Trashing His Wife's Writing Ability

Former president Barack Obama has been "Working" on his third memoir for several years.

Sources told the Atlantic that when Obama discussed his book, for which he and Michelle received a combined advance of $65 million, he tended to point out that he was writing it himself-unlike his wife, who used a ghostwriter.

According to a New York Times report published over the weekend, Obama is still aggressively sensitive about his lack of productivity in relation to Michelle.

The amount of time Obama has spent writing the book "Remains among the touchiest of topics," the Times reports, and it is starting to irritate some of the people involved with the project.

Obama, described as "a deliberate writer prone to procrastination-and lengthy digression," reportedly insisted on not being held to a specific deadline.

The Times notes that Obama is "Seriously considering splitting the project into two volumes" in an effort to get something into print before the end of the year.

The Washington Free Beacon predicted in 2015 that Obama would become "The first U.S. president to compose a multi-volume opus about [his] time in office."

The Corporate Media Finally Have A Working Plan To Beat Trump

It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.

The article is illuminating not just because reporters ostensibly covering the presidential race are writing like it's occurring in an fishbowl they and their colleagues don't largely control, but because the article stands out as one of the very media acknowledgements of this disappearing act in any corporate media outside of Fox News.

Shielding a candidate from the majority of media criticism can only do so much, and in February as a seemingly assured re-election loomed, corporate media still lacked lines of attack that worked on President Trump.

The corporate media spent March, April, May, and June demonizing Republicans and lauding Democrats for their handlings of a disease that killed three times as many people in Gov. Andrew Cuomo's New York as the recently targeted states of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah combined.

This isn't surprising: When corporate media were working to destroy South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem's hands-off approach to the virus, the startling number of cases at a pork-processing plant The New York Times dubbed the "Country's Biggest Coronavirus Hotspot" were touted by the paper and the dozens of brave reporters who rushed to parrot it.

The same corporate media that hand-selects its virus statistics to batter and frighten Republican politicians routinely plays the fool when discussing the once-historic-and-now-plummeting economy of the United States.

A corporate media that have struggled for years to achieve their openly stated goal of defeating the president finally have a working plan.

The Coronavirus Lockdowns Were A Mistake, Here's Why

In various states across the nation, there's been a noticeable trend of an increase in coronavirus cases.

Coronavirus data says risk is low for most Americans.

0-49 years old:.05%. 50-64 years old:.2%. 65+ years old: 1.3%. Overall ages:.4%. When you take into account that approximately 30% of coronavirus infections are asymptomatic, that drives the fatality rate down even further.

According to Woolhouse, for the non-vulnerable population, the coronavirus is comparable to a "Nasty flu."

Schools didn't have to close down, and "Non-essential" businesses could have continued to serve the public, many of whom had as much a chance of dying from the coronavirus as they did dying on their daily commute, but the lockdowns kept everyone, including the young and healthy, at home.

Nursing home patients represent a mere.46 percent of the United States population but account for approximately 43 percent of all coronavirus deaths.

Had they, we could have had a more strategic approach to the coronavirus lockdowns that allowed businesses and schools to stay open while quarantining the vulnerable.

Andy Ngo Disproves Nadler Claim Antifa Is 'Imaginary'

On Monday, Andy Ngo, editor-at-large at The Post Millennial, testified before the House Oversight Committee, powerfully rebutting Rep. Jerry Nadler's insistence that when it comes to the protests and riots spreading across America after the horrific police killing of George Floyd, the presence of antifa instigators is "Imaginary." Ngo, who has suffered serious injury from antifa attacks, is a living rebuke to such claims.

Yes, Rep. Jerry Nadler really did try to claim that Antifa was "Imaginary." pic.

Jordan asked Ngo to respond to the claim that antifa is "Imaginary."

Last June, a violent antifa assault landed Ngo in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage.

"Police in Portland and Seattle, like elsewhere, have sustained serious injuries from rocks, bricks, concrete chunks, IEDs, and more. I've witnessed how-while shouting 'peaceful protest'-violent agitators from the crowd blind officers with lasers or paintballs before throwing projectiles at them," Ngo testified.

When rioters cynically exploit a peaceful protest and police act to prevent loss of life and livelihoods, their actions are "Framed as police brutality." Ngo lamented that in response, Portland's City Council restrained police from using many of the tools available for restoring law and order.

"I don't know what politicians want police to do. Do you want them to protect life and protect property, or do you want them to let rioters destroy and kill as they've done?" Ngo asked.
