Booker, Cuomo Raise Profiles Years Ahead Of 2020 Presidential Race (barf)

The professional political douche-bag class redux:  Get ready for 2020 ‘cuz here comes a  NY limousine progressive fuck-tard with Daddy’s name name and no real skills or life experience, as well as yet ANOTHER semi-black dude from a privileged background and IVY league schools.

booker-cuomoLittle Lord Cuomo -his father’s shadow, walking around in shoes he knows that we know are too bog for him really – has like most progressive turds never had a real job.  Went to private schools in Queens, then to Albany for a law degree. Daddy hired him as a campaign manager.  Because dad was a good trooper for the Dem machine, Cuomo got slot as head of HUD under Clinton- in line with his communist and re-distributing temperament.  Winds shifted in DC and he managed to become NYAG for a spell – yet another public “job”.   Married into the progressive royalty of the Kennedy clan … THE Kennedy clan … but he probably ruined that.   Lives now with a lady who wrote a cook book.  He is READY to look out fo you though. Really.

Next up for you, Cory Obama Booker with his smooth stage visage, a warm spot for jews and lot of prog-feelings had – just like our Kenyan communist – used his negro-chic to waltz into Newark NJ (though he had no history or connections there) to make a political name for himself. Reminds of someone wh0 moved to Chappaqua just in time to become a NY Senator a while back, but the name escapes me.

I can’t wait to hit the ballot booth in 2020, i may just register D to cast my ballot.

President-elect Donald Trump has not yet even taken the oath of office, but two men from the NY-NJ are propelling themselves into the political arena as possible contenders in 2020.  But, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.)  have both shown big ambitions. Both have taken bold and dramatic steps in recent days to ensure that their names are on the lips of Democrats looking for the next Democratic presidential contender.

Both Cuomo and Booker had opening gambits to get themselves national attention.  Booker broke with tradition this week, and testified against a sitting U.S. senator — attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions. The next attorney general must bring hope and healing to this country, and this demands a more courageous empathy than Senator Sessions’ record demonstrates,” Booker said.

And while Booker has not said straight out that he will be a candidate in 2020, there is a Facebook page called “Cory Booker for President in 2020.”

Meanwhile, Cuomo has been carrying his bridge to the national spotlight too.  “We all heard the roar on Election Day and we must respond,” Cuomo said in his first of several State of the State addresses on Monday. Cuomo has seemingly been attempting to fix everything – the Tappan Zee Bridge, John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia airports, the subways, and the railroads.  He has also announced an exhaustive series of programs to rescue the forgotten middle class. He even held a high-profile even with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) to offer New York students free college tuition.  The proposal came with a pat on the back from Sanders himself.

“If New York state does it this year, mark my words, state after state will follow,” Sanders said at the event this month.

Booker and Cuomo want to be the go-to people for anti-Trump commentary.  “They want to be the spokespeople for the Democratic Party; the progressive left; the sane American,” Muzzio said.

But it is four long years before the next presidential election, and as Gov. Cuomo’s father – the late former Gov. Mario Cuomo – once said, “Between then and now, a pope could be born.” In other words, a lot can happen.

When will ‘The Pause’ in global temperature return? | Watts Up With That?

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

Another year, another failure of global warming to occur at even half the rate originally predicted by IPCC in 1990.CO2 emissions have increased at a rate somewhat above the high-end prediction made in IPCC’s First Assessment Report. In 2013 our sins of emission totaled 10.8 billion tonnes of carbon; in 2014 the official estimate, in the annual paper published by le Quéré et al., was 10.9 billion tonnes:…  Source: When will ‘The Pause’ in global temperature return? | Watts Up With That?

No Longer Selling Access, the Clinton Foundation Begs for Funds | Heat Street

“…As we prepare for a new year, President Clinton and Chelsea remain dedicated to our work providing everyone a chance to succeed,” Lindsey wrote in the email. “Your contribution before the end of the year is so important that President Clinton is personally TRIPLING every gift to the Foundation, up to $200,000.”

Interestingly, Hillary’s name is nowhere to be found.

The FBI is still investigating the Clinton Foundation for corruption and money laundering. It was a hot topic during the presidential race; Donald Trump repeatedly described the foundation as a “criminal enterprise.” Emails published by WikiLeaks exposed questionable behavior at the foundation, such as the Qatari government presenting Bill Clinton with a $1 million check for his birthday.

In the email to foundation supporters, Lindsey dismissed allegations of wrongdoing, describing the foundation as a “force for good in this world.”

We’ll see in the coming months and years if the foundation’s sketchy donors were truly committing to “saving the world,” or if they just saw the foundation as an easy way to purchase influence and access to power.

Bill Clinton is personally pledging up to $200,000 in matching donations.

The Myth of Conservative Patriotism | Lew Rockwell

Christian Newman writes at Lew Rockwell.com   “…Modern conservatives have shown not a love for country, a love and respect for the liberties and freedoms of their neighbors and people who live alongside them, but they have shown a love for the state and the American empire. They’ve shown a love for activist government, for taxation above and beyond what their supposed heroes dumped tea into a harbor for. They’ve welcomed the red-coats into their homes through warrant-less searches, and they worship the red, white, and blue calf that the Bible warned them against...” Go here – LewRockwell

National Socialism Bad; International Socialism Good | Bionic Mosquito

George Soros is at it again. Don’t blame him for the calamities facing the various countries of the west. It is all Germany’s fault; it is also all Putin’s fault. It has nothing to do with crony capitalism and central banking; it has nothing to do with his open borders / refugee / immigration initiatives. Nothing to do with bringing freedom through warfare and invasion throughout North Africa, the Middle East, Central Europe and Central Asia. Nope. Nothing to do with any of the causes that he supported. Instead, the fault lies with those who have opposed these causes.

He opens with his memories of growing up in Hungary, under “Hitler’s” Germany. This so the imagery wouldn’t be missed when he writes later of Trump and the various similar voter rebellions and national movements coming in Europe….

 Christmas Greetings from Islamic terrorists and open border globalists  | Charles Carroll Society

At …this time we understand that a muslim refugee (apparently a Pakistan muslim refugee that recently entered Germany) living in Germany murdered a Polish Catholic truck driver 37-year old Ariel Zurawski who apparently was carrying a load of steel from Italy to Berlin. The muslim refugee stole Ariel Zurawski truck and then drove that truck into a crowd of people doing their Christmas shopping. The muslim refugee killed at least 9  12 people and seriously injured more than 50. Several of those injured are critical. We can expect the number of dead to increase. We can expect similar attacks in the future. Globalist say that increased number of muslims have nothing to do with an increasing amount of violence tied to political islam. Many of us know better. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack. Why is there a Christmas tree and 12 dead people under the wheels of truck driving by a muslim refugee Pope Francis? So, it is time for the progressives…Source: Charles Carroll Society

Denninger comments on Arpaio vs. Obama’s ‘birth certificate’ | Market Ticker

If you remember back when the “birther” thing was raging and the alleged long-form “birth certificate” was “released” by the President I did a multi-segment dissection of the computer file (PDF) that contained same.My conclusion was that it had been manufactured. I based that analysis on my examination of the data patterns that were allegedly a “scan”, along with my more than two decades of experience with scanners, Adobe software and more.  That conclusion said nothing about whether Obama was actually born in the United States; it only went to the issue of whether he had presented a true and complete copy of an archived document that actually existed or whether said “copy” was in fact manufactured — made up.

To this day I stand by the conclusions I reached.

Now, just yesterday, it was disclosed that Sheriff Joe has found the source document used to produce the so-called “birth certificate. His investigators found the birth certificate that contains elements that were obviously lifted wholesale through digital means and used to construct the Obama-presented “long form” birth certificate. 

It is simply not possible that all of the elements in question are exactly identical in their position and inclination (“tilt”) between these two documents that were hand-stamped and fed, by hand, into a typewriter. In short what Sheriff Joe’s investigators found was the smoking gun — the original source from which the elements that were lifted had been cribbed.There is no other explanation for the congruence between these two supposedly-unrelated pieces of paper filled out days apart and stamped by hand, manually, using a rubber stamp and typewriter. It is not possible for these elements to have randomly matched exactly between two separately-prepared, hand-stamped and typed documents.

When I first saw this report I assumed someone was yanking everyone’s chain as what I was sent was a YouTube link. But…. there really does appear to be a news story on the press conference on Fox10 Phoenix’s page with it embedded.If it’s a hoax it’s a pretty good one.Where is the national coverage on this folks?

It is an absolute smoking gun that proves the document presented to the people of the United States was forged and is not a true and correct copy of an original that was properly filed and through the routine course of record-keeping placed (e.g. microfilmed, etc) in the archives of the State of Hawaii.

There is not now, and I bet there will not be, one bit of national coverage (or any prosecution either) of what is a rather clear felony — the forgery of an official state record and the presentment of same as a valid credential.. Source: Market-Ticker

NJ: Police capture serial rapist, 5-time convict, last wanted in Camden sex assault

CAMDEN, N.J. (WPVI) –Police have captured a wanted man in a sexual assault in Camden, New Jersey – 29-year-old Andre D. Wesley. The five-time convicted felon is a registered sex offender.

“Andre showed up at the premises armed with a butcher knife. There was a tense standoff with officers on scene,” said Police Chief Scott Thompson. “They were able to not shoot him, which he was essentially asking them to do. They utilized a tazer to neutralize him.”

Just hours earlier, at a news conference, Thompson called Wesley armed and dangerous, and asked the public’s help in finding him .“We would classify him as a serial rapist,” said Thompson. Wanted for a brutal sex assault, the likes of which stuns even the city’s most experienced detectives. Police say the suspect drove a white van seen on surveillance video when he picked up the victim on Broadway and attacked her at an abandoned lot. She managed to call for help. “He believed her to be dead at the time. We clearly believe that was his intention, was To kill her,” said Thompson.  Police won’t say what lead them to Wesley.  In Willingboro, authorities raided the home he shares with family, and It’s there police eventually captured him.  And Chief Thompson says he is a likely suspect in other rapes in the region.

Wesley faces a long list of charges including attempted murder, aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping and robbery. He is being held on $2 million cash bail. Source: Police capture wanted man in Camden sex assault

China: Abusive Cybersecurity Law Set to be Passed | Human Rights Watch

The Chinese government is set to adopt the Cybersecurity Law, a regressive measure that strengthens censorship, surveillance, and other controls over the Internet, Human Rights Watch said today. China’s top legislative body, the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, held a third and final reading on the law on October 31, 2016, and is expected to pass the law by the end of its October 31-November 7 session.

“Despite widespread international concern from corporations and rights advocates for more than a year, Chinese authorities pressed ahead with this restrictive law without making meaningful changes,” said Sophie Richardson, China Director. “The already heavily censored Internet in China needs more freedom, not less.”

The third and final reading draft, which has not been officially published, reflects some changes from the first draft. Yet the fundamentally abusive aspects of the initial draft remain unchanged. The final draft:

  • Requires a range of companies to censor “prohibited” information and restrict online anonymity, including by demanding that companies require users to provide their real name and personal information. The final law adds instant messaging services to the list of service providers subject to real-name requirements;
  • Requires “critical information infrastructure operators” to store users’ “personal information and other important business data” in China. The final draft narrows the scope to only data that is related to a firm’s China operations, but the term “important business data” is undefined, and companies must still submit to a security assessment if they want to transfer data outside the country. The definition of “critical information infrastructure” remains vague and could encompass a broad range of companies;
  • Requires companies to monitor and report to the government undefined “network security incidents,” as well as provide undefined “technical support” to security agencies to aid in investigations, raising fears of increased surveillance. The final draft further specifies that network operators must retain network logs for at least six months and accept government supervision; and
  • Provides a legal basis for potentially large-scale network shutdowns to respond to “major [public] security incidents.”…

In an environment like this, law and justice will be meaningless, as the tools of a technocracy can be used to enforce the policies and whims of whoever monitors us, whether it be corporate employees, criminals, or abusive state actors.Recent developments and roll-outs of advanced facial recognition technology are a hint of the coming ubiquity in using biometric, face-scanning, emotion-reading, all-seeing technology to govern every detail of daily life.

IRS Demands Identities of All US Coinbase Traders Over Three Year Period | Motherboard

In bitcoin-related investigations, authorities will often follow the digital trail of an illegal transaction or suspicious user back to a specific account at a bitcoin trading company. From here, investigators will likely subpoena the company for records about that particular user, so they can then properly identify the person suspected of a crime.The Internal Revenue Service, however, has taken a different approach. Instead of asking for data relating to specific individuals suspected of a crime, it has demanded bitcoin trading site Coinbase to provide the identities of all of the firm’s US customers who made transactions over a three year period, because there is a chance they are avoiding paying taxes on their bitcoin reserves.

NJ: Man Sues Judge Who Jailed Him Because He Had No Money To Pay Littering Fine

He made $9 an hour; fine was $239. Pay now, judge said, and wouldn’t allow installments. ACLU says it’s akin to debtors’ prison

Anthony Kneisser says all he was trying to do was set up a payment plan to pay a fine he received for throwing a cigarette butt out the window of his car.  Instead, he says, he wound up in jail in Burlington Township, because he could not pay the fine in full the day he appeared in court.

Kneisser, of Jackson NJ, filed a lawsuit against Burlington Township and Dennis McInerney, the township’s municipal court judge, charging the decision to jail Kneisser violated due process and discriminated against him based on income. The suit was filed in federal court in Camden.  Now, the American Civil Liberties Union has joined in, labeling the action to jail him akin to a modern-day debtors’ prison. (more…)
