Clinton Lawyer Indicted for Fabricating Conspiracy about President Trump

Indict! What the hell is going on?

CLINTON LAWYER INDICTED FOR FABRICATING CONSPIRACY ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP

By The Conservative Treehouse, September 18, 2021

U.S. Special Counsel John Durham has released an indictment [pdf here] of Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann for lying to federal investigators in 2016 about the people and motives behind his FBI contact. He failed to tell them his intent was to spread a false Alfa Bank conspiracy theory on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

Working for the Perkins Coie law firm, while under contract with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, partner Michael Sussmann contacted FBI Legal Counsel James Baker to pitch evidence that a Russian bank was in digital communications with servers in Trump Tower.  The Alfa Bank allegation was one of the key components for the ridiculous Trump-Russia narrative put together by the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Sussmann wanted the FBI to investigate Donald Trump, so that Hillary Clinton could push a political fabrication about Donald Trump working with Russians to steal the presidential election.

According to the indictment, Sussmann failed to tell the FBI that he was giving them this information on behalf of the Clinton campaign.  The FBI investigated the claims and found nothing; however, it was the appearance of the investigation that Clinton needed in order to leak/push the Trump-Russia story to the media and stir up the controversy…

With the indictment now public, The New York Times also now admits Michael Sussmann was their source for stories they wrote about Alfa bank…

Perkins Coie is “law firm-1”.  Mark Elias is “campaign lawyer 1”.   The “US Investigative Firm” is Fusion GPS.   “Tech Executive-1” is likely Shawn Henry of Crowdstrike…

In March 2016, Fusion GPS approached Perkins Coie to discuss potential engagement in the development of opposition research on Donald Trump…

In April 2016, Perkins Coie retained Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Towards the end of the month, on April 29, Perkins Coie partner Michael Sussmann contacted Shawn Henry of CrowdStrike Services…

Before June 14, 2016, Sussmann, CrowdStrike Services and the Democratic National Committee carefully crafted a damage control story with regards to the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, which Dmitri Alperovitch and Shawn Henry released to Ellen Nakashima at The Washington Post.

On June 14, 2016, Nakashima…published the article “Russian government hackers penetrated DNC, stole opposition research on Trump” in The Washington Post

In…July 2016, a member of the…organisation, known by the alias “Tea Leaves”, discovered potential malware moving from the Alfa Bank server to the Trump Organization server. The information…was then circulated among his colleagues…

October 31, 2016, Franklin Foer published the article, “Was a Trump Server Communicating With Russia?”, in Slate. This article was then retweeted by Hillary Clinton in a tweet which read: “It’s time for Trump to answer serious questions about his ties to Russia.”…

Fusion GPS then passed Steele’s reports to Marc Elias at Perkins Coie.

The rest, as they say, is history….

Treasury Department Seeks to Track Financial Transactions of Personal Bank Accounts Over $600

In May, the Treasury Department released the Biden administration’s revenue proposals for fiscal year 2022. One aspect of this document that has gone under-reported is the administration’s new plan for reporting requirements for financial institutions.

The document is unequivocal about the administration’s goal for financial reporting, stating, “this proposal would create a comprehensive financial account information reporting regime.”

The Biden administration’s goal here is to increase tax revenue by making sure no income avoids detection. How will the administration do this? It plans to leverage financial institutions like banks.

“[T]his requirement would apply to all business and personal accounts from financial institutions,” the proposal reads, “including bank, loan, and investment accounts, with the exception of accounts below a low de minimis gross flow threshold of $600 or fair market value of $600.”

In other words, financial institutions will report any flows in and out of business and personal accounts of more than $600.

This reporting requirement is far above any current requirements on financial institutions. As the document itself states, currently only information for certain types of revenue (including 1099 forms MISC, NEC, and K) require reporting.

Some may view this proposal by the Biden administration positively. After all, this isn’t an attempt at raising taxes. The goal of this policy is to ensure individuals pay what is legally required, isn’t it?

There are two issues with this way of thinking.

The first issue is highlighted by economist Ludwig von Mises’s insight that “capitalism breathes through [the] loopholes.” The great innovations and improvements in well-being made available through capitalism were not generated in a loophole-free system. Oftentimes, the most important innovations begin as small start-ups with razor thin margins. As loopholes close, the chance of these risky start-ups succeeding declines.

Entrepreneurs are not ignorant to the barriers of regulations and taxation. When something is taxed, you get less of it. If any entrepreneurs are right on the fence of whether a new business venture is likely to be worth it, increasing costs even a little bit may be enough to persuade them otherwise. Economists call this “being on the margin.”

Avoiding taxes and reporting on small dollar transactions (either intentionally or unintentionally) is another form of loophole. De jure businesses are required to follow strict tax reporting rules, but, much like driving the speed limit, the de facto reporting often departs from the official rule.

To understand the danger of making businesses comply with tax law to the letter, consider how difficult it would be for businesses to do so. The tax code is now so long that nobody, including government officials, are sure of its length. How can business-owners be sure they’re complying with a document of unknown length? Put simply, they can’t.

Therefore, not only will these increased financial reporting requirements raise taxes on entrepreneurs on the margin, they will also force businesses to expend more time and resources ensuring they pay the proper amount of taxes. Any tax audit with access to every account transfer over $600 will crush businesses without a team of accountants or lawyers able to justify every transfer.

The burden of this policy, then, will fall primarily on small businesses without access to a massive internal legal team. A policy that punishes small businesses like this may be good for large corporations, but it’s bad for market competition.

As Mises noted, capitalism suffocates without loopholes.

The second issue associated with Biden’s proposal is its effect on financial privacy. The administration’s focus on increasing financial reporting is becoming a consistent theme. For example, the “information reporting regime” document also includes proposals for cryptocurrency reporting which can be seen as a precursor to the crypto reporting requirements shoehorned into the “infrastructure” bill.

The increase in financial scrutiny provided by access to every transaction greater than $600 associated with personal accounts would provide an unprecedented look into the finances of many Americans. Even the powerful political will behind the 2002 “Patriot Act” only led to requirements that banks report suspicious transactions of $5,000 or more.

Much like small businesses, most individuals don’t have access to a team of lawyers and accountants the same way DC politicians and bureaucrats do. As such, these new requirements are likely to hurt poor and middle income Americans whose primary source of income is non-traditional. This is unsurprising given the Biden administration’s record of threatening gig work, for instance.

Some may argue that privacy is unnecessary because you have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide. But, again, individuals cannot be expected to perfectly comply with a document of unspecified length. Unfortunately, as the government approaches perfect information, perfect compliance becomes the standard.

At one time, perhaps community banks or other small financial institutions interested in keeping customers around could’ve provided resistance to this by generating political pushback or work-arounds for customers.

However, government policies have effectively destroyed a more decentralized network of financial institutions. Since the early 1990s the number of small banks has fallen from over 10,000 to below 5,000. Now politicians are proposing to leverage their relationships with the few big players who are “too big to fail” to examine every aspect of Americans’ finances.

Especially with the lockdowns, the federal government already has small businesses, independent contractors, and the economy in general in a stranglehold. This new “Information Reporting Regime” will only tighten its economically lethal grip.

Biden Restricts Life-Saving Coronavirus Meds In Feud With GOP Governors [+Video]

Could you please explain to me what you are doing about Biden’s federal Department of Health restricting doses of life saving monoclonal antibody treatments to FL which also prevent hospitalizations ?

Outrage Builds as Biden Denies Life-Saving Coronavirus Meds in Feud with GOP Governors

By CHARLIE SPIERING

President Joe Biden continues facing criticism for restricting shipments of monoclonal antibody treatments for the coronavirus to Southern states.

The treatment for the Chinese coronavirus is in high demand in Southern states where some residents are still not vaccinated, as well as for those who are vaccinated but still contracted the virus.

But the Department of Health and Human services has restricted shipments of the treatment to Florida and other southern states.

In Florida, HHS provided less than 31,000 doses this week — half of the 70,000 doses requested by the state.

That prompted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to publicly condemn the Biden administration.

TEXAS: Iranian National Heading to Prison for Illegally Exporting Military Equipment to Iran

He should have been patient. Old Joe Biden’s handlers will give the mullahs everything they want soon enough.

Iranian National In Texas Heading To Prison For Illegally Exporting Military Equipment

CBSDFW, September 15, 2021:

SAN ANTONIO (CBSDFW.COM) — A court in the Western District of Texas has sentenced a man pf [sic] Iranian descent to more than five years in prison for violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.

Mehrdad Ansari, a resident of the United Arab Emirates and Germany, was sentenced to 63 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release for his role in a scheme to obtain military-sensitive parts for Iran.

“This case reaffirms HSI’s resolve and commitment in securing the homeland by targeting foreign actors attempting to procure sensitive technology by exploiting the U.S. export laws,” said HSI San Antonio acting Special Agent in Charge Craig Larrabee.

In coordination with his co-conspirators, Ansari obtained and attempted to obtain parts that had dual military and civilian capability and could be used in such systems as nuclear weapons, missile guidance and development, secure tactical radio communications, offensive electronic warfare, military electronic countermeasures (radio jamming), and radar warning and surveillance systems.

On May 7, a San Antonio federal jury convicted Ansari on one count of conspiracy to violate the Iranian Transaction Regulations, one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and two counts of aiding and abetting the making of false statements.

Evidence presented during trial revealed that the 40-year-old attempted to transship testing equipment obtained from the U.S. by co-defendants, Taiwanese citizen Susan Yip, and Iranian citizen Mehrdad Foomanie, using Ansari’s companies, Gulf Gate Sea Cargo L.L.C., and Global Merchant L.L.C., based in Dubai.

From Oct. 9, 2007, to June 15, 2011, Yip and Foomanie obtained or attempted to obtain from companies worldwide more than 105,000 parts valued at approximately $2,630,800, involving more than 1,250 transactions. The defendant’s main role was to get a particular set of parts from a Central Texas company that was key for the Iranian government’s testing of all other parts…..

Indian Bar Association Sues WHO Scientist Over Ivermectin!

Today’s blog comes from an article from India. It is about the Indian Bar Association suing the WHO ( World Health Organization ) for lying about the ineffectiveness of Ivermectin.

It is an interesting take and a strong step other states, countries and governments need to be taking. As I keep mentioning this whole china virus thing is about money, power, enslaving and more money and power. Making citizens around the world dependent on the government and to destroy all vestiges of liberty and freedom including freedom of choice. You will belong to the government from cradle to grave.

They will decide your job, religion, healthcare and every other aspect including what media you listen to and your freedom to choose for your kids will be removed. Read this story posted below and feel free to share this blog far and wide.

Indian Bar Association sues WHO scientist over Ivermectin – by Justus R. Hope, MD. (Updated September 08.)

The Indian Bar Association (IBA) sued WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan on May 25, accusing her in a 71-point brief of causing the deaths of Indian citizens by misleading them about Ivermectin.

Point 56 states, “That your misleading tweet on May 10, 2021, against the use of Ivermectin had the effect of the State of Tamil Nadu withdrawing Ivermectin from the protocol on May 11, 2021, just a day after the Tamil Nadu government had indicated the same for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.”

Advocate Dipali Ojha, lead attorney for the Indian Bar Association, threatened criminal prosecution against Dr.  Swaminathan “for each death” caused by her acts of commission and omission. The brief accused Swaminathan of misconduct by using her position as a health authority to further the agenda of special interests to maintain an EUA for the lucrative vaccine industry.

Specific charges included the running of a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin and issuing statements in social and mainstream media to wrongfully influence the public against the use of Ivermectin despite the existence of large amounts of clinical data showing its profound effectiveness in both prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

In particular, the Indian Bar brief referenced the peer-reviewed publications and evidence compiled by the ten-member Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) group and the 65-member British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel headed by WHO consultant and meta-analysis expert Dr. Tess Lawrie.

The brief cited US Attorney Ralph C. Lorigo’s hospital cases in New York where court orders were required for dying COVID patients to receive the Ivermectin. In multiple instances of such comatose patients, following the court-ordered Ivermectin, the patients recovered. In addition, the Indian Bar Association cited previous articles published in this forum, The Desert Review.

Advocate Ojha accused the WHO and Dr. Swaminathan in Points 60 and 61 as having misled and misguided the Indian people throughout the pandemic from mask wear to exonerating China as to the virus’s origins.

“The world is gradually waking up to your absurd, arbitrary and fallacious approach in presenting concocted facts as ‘scientific approach.’ While the WHO flaunts itself like a ‘know it all,’ it is akin to the vain Emperor in new clothes while the entire world has realized by now, the Emperor has no clothes at all.”

The brief accused the WHO of being complicit in a vast disinformation campaign. Point 61 states, “The FLCCC and the BIRD have shown exemplary courage in building a formidable force to tackle the challenge of disinformation, resistance, and rebuke from pharma lobbies and powerful health interests like WHO, NIH, CDC, and regulators like the US FDA.”

Dr. Swaminathan was called out for her malfeasance in discrediting Ivermectin to preserve the EUA for the vaccine and pharmaceutical industry. Point 52 reads,  “It seems you have deliberately opted for deaths of people to achieve your ulterior goals, and this is sufficient grounds for criminal prosecution against you.”

The Indian Bar Association posted an update on their website June 5, 2021, noting that Dr. Swaminathan had deleted her now-infamous tweet. They wrote, “However, deleting the tweet will not save Dr. Soumya Swaminathan and her associates from the criminal prosecution which is to be launched by the citizens with active support from the Indian Bar Association.”

https://indianbarassociation.in/blogs-iba/

In this update, Advocate Dipali Ojha clarified the nature of the planned action,

“The Indian Bar Association has warned action under section 302 etc. of the Indian Penal Code against Dr. Soumya Swaminathan and others, for murder of each person dying due to obstruction in treatment of COVID-19 patient effectively by Ivermectin. Punishment under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code is death penalty or life imprisonment.”

He further wrote, “After receiving the said notice, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan went on the back foot and deleted her tweet. This has proved the hollowness of the WHO’s recommendation against Ivermectin for COVID-19. The dishonesty of  WHO and the act of Dr. Soumya Swaminathan in deleting her contentious tweet was witnessed by citizens across the world, as the news got a wide coverage on social media. By deleting the tweet, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan has proved her mala fide intentions.”

The entire world witnessed the effectiveness of Ivermectin against India’s deadly second surge as the locations that adopted it saw their outbreaks quickly extinguished in stark contrast to those states that did not.

Among the most prominent examples include the Ivermectin areas of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Goa where cases dropped 98%, 97%, 94%, and 86%, respectively. By contrast, Tamil Nadu opted out of Ivermectin. As a result, their cases skyrocketed and rose to the highest in India. Tamil Nadu deaths increased ten-fold.

https://www.thedesertreview.com/news/national/ivermectin-obliterates-97-percent-of-delhi-cases/article_6a3be6b2-c31f-11eb-836d-2722d2325a08.html

Tamil Nadu publicly relied upon Dr. Swaminathan’s advice in revoking their initial choice of Ivermectin the day after she recommended against it in her May 10 tweet on social media. As a direct result, Tamil Nadu experienced a surge in COVID death and sickness that continues to this day.

The Indian Bar Association dared to initiate a landmark court case against a Public Health Authority (PHA) to call out corruption and to save lives. As the courts in the United States proved to be the life-saving force to ensure a patient’s right to receive Ivermectin, a court in India is now doing the same.

Criminal prosecution of public health officials will send a powerful signal that disinformation campaigns resulting in death carry consequences. Perhaps this pathway will ultimately break the disinformation and censorship stranglehold around repurposed drug use to save lives. Maybe we will witness other countries following India’s example, both in medicine and in law.

Arizona Becomes First State To Sue Biden Over Vaccine Mandates

Arizona sued the Biden administration Tuesday challenging recent rules forcing both private sector and federal employees to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.

The state argued that the vaccination requirements are unconstitutional because the federal government hasn’t announced similar requirements for migrants crossing the southern border, according to its complaint filed in the U.S. District Court of Arizona. Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich said the Biden administration’s policies reflected an “unmistakable” favoritism in favor of illegal immigrants over American citizens.

“The federal government cannot force people to get the COVID-1a9 vaccine. The Biden Administration is once again flouting our laws and precedents to push their radical agenda,” Brnovich said in a statement. “There can be no serious or scientific discussion about containing the spread of COVID-19 that doesn’t begin at our southern border.”

“Under our Constitution, the President is not a king who can exercise this sort of unbridled power unilaterally,” the attorney general wrote in the complaint. “And even George III wouldn’t have dreamed that he could enact such sweeping policies by royal decree alone.”

Arizona’s lawsuit is the first of its kind challenging the recently-announced vaccination rules.

On Thursday, President Joe Biden introduced a series of new measures that he said would curb the increasing number of coronavirus cases nationwide. The president notably ordered the Department of Labor to develop a rule mandating “all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis.”

Biden also ordered millions of federal executive branch workers and contractors to receive a vaccination.

Following the president’s announcement, multiple state attorneys general and governors immediately threatened legal action.

“Biden’s historic overreach on vaccine mandates will not stand in Missouri,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt tweeted. “We’re at a crossroads in America — who we are and what we’re going to be. We must fight back.”

The vaccine mandate announcement has also been met with protests. The mandate was applauded by big business interest groups, but criticized by small business organizations.

Biden and several other senior administration officials are listed as defendants in the complaint.

North Dakota: Somali Refugee Charged with Murder of Young Mother

Such a sick, sick story on many fronts.

North Dakota has been roiled with refugee tensions over the years as I reported extensively at my other blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch.

I visited the state in 2016 to get a feeling for the situation there mostly a result of Minnesota Somalis spilling across the border into the state, but some refugees have been directly placed there by a Lutheran resettlement agency.

And, as you read this news, keep in the back of your mind that Biden will this month be making the decision on the refugee ceiling for the new fiscal year that begins on October first.  Among the 125,000 he has so far indicated would be arriving, thousands of Somalis will be among them.

But, that isn’t all.

The refugee industry is pushing for the number to be 200,000.  Those tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees beginning to arrive may end up being in addition to 200,000 from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East—all will be needy people looking for the generosity of the US taxpayer!

Here is the bare bones news story from Valley News Live:

Manslaughter charge amended to Murder in Grand Forks shooting

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Valley News Live) – Grand Forks Police have identified the victim of a weekend shooting as 28-year-old Megan Lea Gustafson.

The manslaughter charge originally filed against 26-year-old Ahmen Mohamed Abdullahi has been amended to Murder.

Abdullahi is also charged with one count of unlawful possession of a firearm and theft of property.

Grand Forks Police say the shooting happened just after 1:30 Sunday morning at a home in the 1300 block of 8th Avenue North. Officers responded to a report of a suspicious man in the area, they knocked on an apartment door and talked to Megan Gustafson.

Officers walked away and shortly after, they heard an argument coming from inside the apartment.

Court documents say officers saw the door open; Gustafson was standing in the doorway with her back toward the street and Abdullahi was facing her.

Officers heard a single gunshot, heard Gustafson scream, and then saw her run into the lawn and fall to the ground.

Abdullahi walked out of the apartment holding a handgun, according to court documents. Officers were able to detain Abdullahi without incident.

Police say Gustafson had a gunshot wound in the chin/neck area.

They tried to save her, but she later died at Altru Hospital.

Court documents also say the handgun found at the scene was reported stolen from a vehicle in Grand Forks in September 2020. Abdullahi is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm due to a felony terrorizing conviction in Grand Forks County in March 2021.

Diversity is not beautiful!

As I have said here on many occasions, more young women might be alive if the mainstream media wasn’t chicken to publish stories like this one!

You will see, this won’t go beyond the local news.

Ted Cruz Slams Blinken over Afghan Child Brides: ‘You Brought A Crisis to America’


Watch Senator Ted Cruz grill the incompetent Secretary of State Antony Blinken over America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Ted Cruz slams Blinken over Afghan child brides: ‘You brought a crisis to America’

By New York, Post, September 14, 2021

Sen. Ted Cruz confronted Secretary of State Antony Blinken about child brides being brought to the United States from Afghanistan amid the chaotic withdrawal by the Biden administration, demanding to know what guidance the State Department has been provided to rescue minors among the evacuees that have been victims of sexual abuse.

The Texas Republican argued that the Biden administration has failed to properly vet Afghans who were evacuated and brought to the United States following the fall of the country’s government to the Taliban, potentially bringing “a humanitarian crisis to America.”

“Not only did you fail to evacuate Americans and green card holders who were there, but you also brought in tens of thousands of Afghans who had wholly inadequate vetting, bringing many of them to the United States.,” Cruz charged during an often heated Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing Tuesday.

“And one of the things that has done is that has brought in a humanitarian crisis to America. Child marriage and domestic abuse tragically are widespread in Afghanistan,” he said.

Cruz noted that the World Health Organization reports that more than half of the women in Afghanistan are married as child brides, and 90 percent of women are subject to domestic abuse.

“On Aug. 27, according to public reports, you distributed internal documentation, highlighting numerous instances and intake centers of sexual abuse, in which much older grown Afghan males appeared with children, young children, claimed they were their brides, claimed they were their wives. And the documents said the State Department urgently requested guidance.”

Cruz then demanded answers on whether the State Department had received the requested guidance or could provide information on whether there was a plan to prevent the sexual abuse of minors.

“My question is as follows: Did you receive that urgent guidance? How many children have been subject to sexual abuse? What have you done to rescue young children from illegal and abusive relationships after being brought to America by the State Department?” Cruz said.

Blinked said he was unaware of the “specific guidance you’re referring to,” but “happy to look at it,” adding that the officers are looking into cases of concern.

“Across the entire government, everyone involved in the evacuation effort whether it’s at a transit point, in one of the countries that we negotiated with, whether it’s here in the United States at Dulles, or Philadelphia, or the military bases, we have all of our officers at extreme vigilance to look for and to deal with any cases or concerns that arise,” Blinken replied.

Cruz went on to press Blinken on the level of urgency the State Department had toward addressing the matter and the number of cases it was aware of.

Apple, Google, Amazon Spying On You, Lawsuits Filed

Voluntary fascism from America’s biggest corporations.

Apple, Google, Amazon spying on you, lawsuits claim

All 3 tech companies have voice assistant features and claim that they do not retain the user’s conversations

By Brooke Crothers, FOX Business, September 14, 2O21:

A federal judge has given a green light for a class-action lawsuit claiming that Apple’s Siri voice assistant violates users’ privacy.

Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White said the plaintiffs would be allowed to move forward with lawsuits trying to prove that Siri routinely recorded their private conversations because of “accidental activations” and that Apple provided the conversations to advertisers, according to Reuters. The plaintiffs claim that Apple violated the federal Wiretap Act and California privacy law, among other claims.

Separate lawsuits against Google and Amazon make similar claims about voice assistants. One of the most common claims cited in the lawsuits is that conversations were recorded without user consent and then used by advertisers to target the plaintiffs.

This is happening against a backdrop of surging smart speaker sales.

As of June 2021, the installed base of smart speakers in the U.S. reached 126 million units, jumping from 20 million units in June 2017, according to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP).

Amazon has the biggest slice of the installed base, with 69% as of June of this year.

“The installed base of smart speakers grew considerably during the COVID-19 pandemic, adding over 25 million units in the past year,” said Josh Lowitz, CIRP Partner and Co-Founder in a statement.

Amazon, Apple and Google all offer smart speakers that use variations of voice assistant technology that is activated when users say key words such as “Hey Siri” for Apple devices or “OK Google” for Google products or “Alexa” for Amazon smart devices.

Amazon devices store that data when activated with a key word or so-called wake word. “No audio is stored or sent to the cloud unless the device detects the wake word (or Alexa is activated by pressing a button),” an Amazon spokesperson told FOX Business in an email.

“Customers have several options to manage their recordings, including the option to not have their recordings saved at all and the ability to automatically delete recordings on an ongoing three- or 18-month basis,” the spokesperson added.

If you don’t want to be recorded by Alexa, in the Alexa app go into the “Privacy” menu. Then go to “Manage your Alexa data” then “Choose how long to save recordings.” Then select “Don’t save recordings.”

Amazon collects and uses voice recordings to deliver and improve services, according to the company. This includes helping train Alexa to better understand different accents and dialects and to provide the right response to requests.

Amazon also said it “manually” reviews data but does not sell it to third parties.

“To help improve Alexa, we manually review and annotate a small fraction of one percent of Alexa requests. Access to human review tools is only granted to employees who require them to improve the service,” the Amazon spokesperson said.

“Our annotation process does not associate voice recordings with any customer identifiable information. Customers can opt-out of having their voice recordings included in the fraction of one percent of voice recordings that get reviewed,” the spokesperson said.

By default, Google doesn’t retain your audio recordings, José Castañeda, a Google Spokesperson, told Fox Business. “We dispute the claims in this case and will vigorously defend ourselves,” Castañeda said in a statement.

However, if you want to confirm that the Google setting is off, go to your Google account and then to “Data and Privacy” then “Web & App Activity” and make sure the box is unchecked next to “Include audio recordings.” The default setting is unchecked.

Apple no longer retains Siri recordings without user permission, according to an Apple statement made in 2019. Siri will only retain your data if you choose to opt-in via settings on Apple devices.

Rand Paul to Blinken: ‘You’ve Created Hundreds or Thousands of New Potential Terrorists’ [Video]

My latest in PJ Media:

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Secretary of State Antony Blinken had a contentious exchange Tuesday during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Biden’s handlers’ catastrophic bungling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan and continued incompetence. Paul took the opportunity to tell Blinken some home truths, truths that Blinken and his colleagues are certain to continue to ignore, to their peril and ours.

Paul hit Biden’s handlers’ “colossal incompetence” in Afghanistan, and noted that the Biden administration was “holding no one accountable, having everyone circle the wagons.” He added: “To add insult to injury, this week you’ve now released sixty-four million dollars in aid to Afghanistan. Don’t we have some prohibition against giving aid and comfort to the enemy? Now the argument from the Biden administration is, ‘Oh, we’re giving it to charities, and it’s for the good of the people, for poor people, and for women.’ Well, the Taliban has a history of taking this. Throughout their governance, they would take the money. This was a big complaint we had when they were in power the last time. They now have eighty billion dollars’ worth of weapons. Three-hundred and fifty thousand automatic weapons. Are we really naïve enough to believe that we are just going to keep sending charity to Afghanistan and they’re not going to interrupt it? I think that’s a foolish notion.”

Paul made Blinken even more uncomfortable when he asked him: “The guy the Biden administration droned, was he an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?”

Blinken first tried to deflect the question: “Uh, er, the administration is of course reviewing, that, uh, that strike, uh, and I’m sure that a, you know, a full assessment will be forthcoming .” Paul interrupted: “So you don’t know if it was an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?” Blinken continued: “Uh, I can’t speak to that, and I can’t speak to that in this setting in any event.” Paul shot back: “So you don’t know or won’t tell us.” Blinken responded: “Uh, I don’t, I don’t know because we’re, we’re reviewing it.”

Paul then moved in for the kill: “Well, see, you’d think you’d kind of know before you off somebody with a predator drone whether he’s an aid worker or he’s an ISIS-K – you see, the thing is, this isn’t just you. It’s been going on for administration after administration. The Obama administration droned hundreds and hundreds of people. And the thing is, there is blowback to that. I mean, I don’t know if it’s true, but I see these pictures of these beautiful children that were killed in the attack. If that’s true and not propaganda, if that’s true, guess what? Maybe you’ve created hundreds or thousands of new potential terrorists from bombing the wrong people. So you’ve gotta know who you’re – we can’t sort of have an investigation after we kill people, we have an investigation before we kill people.”

There is more. Read the rest here.

The 4 Biggest Problems with Biden’s Vaccine Order

Surely, the White House’s vaccine mandate plan cannot stand. 


Back in December of 2020, then President-elect Biden said that he would not make vaccines against COVID-19 mandatory, nor did he think they should be mandatory. Given the new vaccine mandate by the White House, set to affect nearly 100 million Americans by some estimates, one reasonably conclude that Biden misled the people. However, Biden’s actions will likely increase vaccine hesitancy, lead to further distrust of the government, and can expect multiple legal challenges – as well as civil disobedience. These outcomes can all be expected due to four distinct challenges to the mandate.

First, Biden’s executive order is just that – an executive order. Congress, the legislative branch, and thus the entire concept of representative government, has been bypassed by President Biden. The White House has no legislative authority to create an emergency rule under OSHA and it says as much in the U.S. Constitution. Article 1, Section 1 states very plainly, in a single sentence: “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” Nowhere in that sentence are legislative authorities granted to the Executive branch. Likewise, the President does not reserve such powers – powers which belong to the states or to the people, as outlined by the Tenth Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

Second, proponents of the White House’s actions have cited a legal precedent – the 1905 Supreme Court Case Jacobson v. Massachusettsspecifically – which is unlikely to hold up to any serious scrutiny. In that case, a Massachusetts law passed by a legislature and adhering to the principles of the separation of powers (unlike an executive order authored by the President) allowed local town health boards (not federal agencies run by unelected bureaucrats) to establish mandatory vaccines if it was deemed necessary by local, municipal, elected officials. Those who did not comply were prosecuted with a simple fine of five dollars. A challenge was raised to the law, and the Supreme Court – the Fuller Court specifically – upheld it.

However, when compared to Biden’s new mandate, one can readily see legal issues. Apart from the legislative process that the Massachusetts law first underwent as outlined above, Biden’s executive order places the burden not on the people, but on private companies, effectively turning employer against employee. Certainly, in an employer-employee relationship, and even more so in a government-as-employer setting, vaccine requirements have a clearly established basis. What is not clearly established, if established at all, is the federal government pre-arranging the medical requirements upon which an employment relationship may commence between private individuals.

Furthermore, the appeal to Jacobson v. Massachusetts ought to enrage many Americans, especially women and minorities. Jacobson was decided under Chief Justice Fuller, who presided over Plessy v. Ferguson (1896), when racial segregation was codified under federal law. That decision has now been overturned, but remains held in absolute contempt, and rightly so. In addition, Jacobson was decided nearly 15 years before women received the right to vote at the federal level, and was also later cited as precedent – even served as the basis – for the decision of Buck v. Bell (1927) when SCOTUS allowed for compulsory sterilization of women deemed mentally unfit for motherhood.

Third, and speaking of women, there are still ongoing concerns about the safety of the COVID vaccines. Although the CDC has said there is little-to-no risk, and the FDA has fully approved the vaccine, there have been recent reports that the vaccines have been affecting women’s menstrual cycles, raising serious concerns about reproductive health. As recently as early September, in fact, the National Institutes of Health has approved 1.67 million dollars to investigate those claims. The NIH appears to be taking these reports very seriously – unlike the White House, the CDC, and the FDA.

Given the recent tensions and commentary from the Biden Administration in opposition to Texas’ new 6-week abortion law, we might assume that the Biden Administration would be a little more supportive of both bodily autonomy and reproductive health. However, that does not seem to be the case. Furthermore, we might hope that supporters of the Biden Administration would never dream of giving so much deference to a SCOTUS decision made under a Chief Justice who helped codify segregation, and was later used as the basis for forced sterilization. But that does not seem to be the case either.

Fourth and finally, Biden’s mandate makes no exception for natural immunity against COVID, now believed to be more effective than vaccines. Todd Zywicki, a professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School, has already successfully fought George Mason University’s vaccine mandate after filing a lawsuit against the mandate on the basis of natural immunity. Requiring vaccines for those already immune is unnecessary and a violation of medical ethics, and Zywicki’s previous efforts will likely serve as a basis for legal challenges going forward.

It is astounding, truly, to watch the White House bypass the legislative process, ignore representative government, and disrespect the separation of powers. It is enraging to watch supporters of the Biden Administration cite a Supreme Court decision made under the same Chief Justice who presided over Plessy v. Ferguson, years before women had the right to vote, and later used to support forced sterilization.

It is horrific that vaccines be mandated before a new investigation into their safety for women is concluded. And it is unconscionable that such an executive order would make no provision for those possessing natural immunity. Surely, this cannot stand.

Trump’s Big Tech Suit Lawyer Predicts Case Headed to Supreme Court

The very definition of fascism. That’s what it is – in the imposition of communism.

There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism – by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide. Ayn Rand

Trump big tech suit lawyer predicts case headed to Supreme Court, says gov’t pressure made firms state actors

By:  FOX News September 1, 2021:

EXCLUSIVE – The top lawyer for former President Donald Trump in his lawsuits against Twitter, Google and Facebook over his bans from those platforms says that multiple factors make them “state actors,” meaning they’d be legally vulnerable under standards normally applied only to governments, like prior restraint.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News that lawyer, John Coale, argued that the government is essentially deputizing social media companies to censor Americans. And he predicted that the Supreme Court will eventually decide the case.

“The basis for all of this case is that private companies cannot be empowered by the government via Congress, via [Section] 230,” to censor people, Coale said. “The Biden administration and members of Congress can’t delegate what they cannot do themselves.”

He added: “This issue will in the end be decided in the Supreme Court, it’s that important.”

In addition to the initial complaints, Coale and his legal team last week filed a motion for a preliminary injunction against Google – which owns YouTube – to force the company to allow Trump back on its platform.

In all of those documents the main thrust of the Trump team’s arguments is that the companies can be treated like the government in law because they are allegedly taking actions based on pressure, encouragement or willfully in concert with the government. They cite cases that allegedly support this, although they are not perfect fits for facts as the examples are mostly not in the context of speech rights.

“There’s three tests and if they flunk one test, they’re government actors,” Coale said. “The first is if … government officials be they congressmen, senators or people in the executive branch threaten these companies – they did it at congressional hearings, they did it in the media and we show examples of that in the preliminary injunction.”

“The other thing is, if the government encourages censorship that is unconstitutional,” Coale added. “The third test is if … the private company is doing the bidding of the government, and they are. We had Biden’s press secretary confirm that last month when she said that they’re working closely with Facebook to prevent misinformation on the virus.”

Last week’s motion for a preliminary injunction includes several examples of alleged pressure, encouragement and cooperation between the company and government officials.

Among those examples are comments and proposed bills from members of Congress like Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., taking a touch stance against alleged social media misinformation. There are also examples of members of Congress calling for social media bans of the former president and lauding th…

Report Details How Leftist Organizations Have Infiltrated Our State Election Systems

Please read and share the below report. We need to be aware of leftist so called voter info/rights groups operating in Florida attempting to sway our elections to the dark side such as the two which follow.

Citizen’s Guide to Researching Outside Influences In Your Local Election Office

by Ned Jones The Virginia Project

Researching outside influences in your local election office is an on-going project. It is vital to know which groups, entities and individuals are working inside the election offices and to know how they may be influencing decisions and outcomes in our election offices.

The goal is to find and expose those outside influences that are having a significant effect on our elections. There are many tools for the Citizen Researcher to use in this effort.

If you have a genuine interest in our election system, and believe that we no longer have fair and honest elections, then here’s what you can do as a Citizen Researcher to help change that. These are the steps that I took and the tools that I used to determine some of the key the Outside Influences that were embedded in Virginia’s election offices – and apparently many others nationwide –
that were involved in the 2020 Election.

Citizen Research Topics

Third-Party Voter Registration Drive mailings
Third-Party Absentee Ballot Application mailings
Role of the USPS in Third-Party mailings
Third-Party Funding of local Elections
Dept of Elections – Voter Information, Activities, Reports, Outside Vendors
Local Registrars – Voter Information, Election Officers, Seasonal Workers
State Legislatures – Election Legislation, Hearings, Committee Reports
Congress – Election Legislation, Hearings, Reports
Citizen Researcher Steps & Protocols:
The research starts with these internet searches.
Third-Party Voter Registration/Absentee Ballot Application Mailings in (State)
Third-Party Funding/Grants to Local Election Offices in (State) Go to these websites. State Dept. of Elections and State Legislature

Sources of Mass Election Mailings.

When you find an organization doing mass mailings of Voter Registration forms and/or Absentee Ballot Applications in your state, do a search of their website for information about their activities, and a search of the Influence Watch website for detailed information about the organization. Try to get copies of their mailings, either images online, using Google, or from voters that you know who received them.

Do the same thing if you find organizations that are providing funding/grants to local election offices in your state. Your research into these organizations will lead you to other organizations that are involved with your local election offices.

Go to your state’s Dept. of Elections website and search for the names of the organizations that you have found. You may find information about a relationship between them. Get familiar with this
website. Use it for election and voter information. Find out what election/voter lists are available and is there a cost. You also want to start filing FOIA Requests with the Dept. of Elections for any information that you couldn’t find on their website. Such as, requesting them to provide any correspondence between any Election Official and the third-party organizations that you have already found. Request any information that will help your research. All it takes is a simple email, and so far for me, they have all been free.

Look for information about “Absentee Ballot Tracking” on your state’s Dept. of Elections website. They will most likely be using Ballot Scouts (See Appendix). They have a system of tracking
absentee ballots in the mail and confirming the receipt date at the election location. This becomes critical as you approach Absentee/Early Voting deadlines. If there is no postmark, the Election Officials will defer to the Ballot Scouts tracking information. Be sure to check out Democracy Works who runs Ballot Scouts, on Influence Watch.

Look for information about “Audits” on your state’s Dept. of Elections website. Most states will run a “Risk Limiting Audit” after the election. There should be an Audit Report and it will include the
names of the vendors who performed the audit. Most likely it will be Verified Voting and Voter Works (See Appendix). Be sure to check them out on Influence Watch.

Go to the website for the Election Assistance Commission, a non-partisan government commission and search for all the organizations that you have found so far. Go to the USPS website and search for the names of the organizations that you have found so far. In my case, I found The Center for Voter Information/Voter Participation Center (See Appendix), that had done a mass mailing in Virginia. I had their USPS Bulk Mail Account number from an image of an envelope, and found out they had a special type of Bulk Mail Account. I also found out that the USPS used them in their promotional materials.

Go to your State Legislature’s website to become familiar with your sate’s election laws and look for any recent changes.

Monitor what’s happening in Congress with federal election laws.

Citizen Researcher Tools

Once you have identified specific groups that are engaged with your local election office, you should research and find more information about them. Some of the most common ones are listed in the Appendix. For groups, and vendors, that are not listed in the appendix, below are some research tools that are very useful in learning more about who is influencing your local election offices and officials.

Websites:

  • – Capital Research Center – Excellent source for investigative reports on actual and potential Outside Influences.
  • Influence Watch – This website is run by the Capital research Center and is an excellent source for detailed descriptions and other information about actual and potential Outside Influences. Real Clear Politics – Good source for consolidated polling information. Most polls over poll Democrats, so you have to adjust the results.
  • USPS – Information on organizations doing mass mailings.
  • Internet Search – Google, Bing, etc.

Social Media – Twitter, FB, Telegram, GAB, Parler, Etc. are all good sources of information, but always check out what you read as there is a lot of disinformation, and you only want to deal with facts.

FOIA Requests – Freedom of Information Act requests are simple, usually free, and the response can be very valuable information.

State Board of Elections – Monitor their activities and attend their meetings. Like the Dept. of Elections, they are a good source for information about elections at the state level.

Local Registrars – Develop a relationship with your local Registrar. They will be your best source about what’s happening at the local level. It may take a FOIA request to get what you want, but a
personal relationship goes a long way. They will help you get involved as an election observer.

State and Local GOP – Join the local GOP Committee Unit. It’s a good way to get information about what the Party and Candidates are doing in your state.

Media – Monitor as much Media as possible, but be real careful with the information. Beware of “Fake News”. You only want to deal with facts.

Election Data and Statewide protocols and Guidance:

  • Dept. of Elections – Best source for information about elections at the state level. Information about Registration, Turn Out, Election Results. Policy Reports, Audit Reports, and the names of their outside vendors.

Ongoing Research and Monitoring of Election Changes:

  • State Legislature – Information on election related legislation that is being considered, or has passed.
  • State and Local Election Boards: Monitor changes in state rules, regulations and guidance related to election procedures and protocols.

APPENDIX OF KNOWN LEFTIST GROUPS EMBEDDED IN LOCAL ELECTION OFFICES

The Center For Voter Information – I found them with a simple Google search for “Third -Party Absentee Ballot Application mailings”. This is a Left-Leaning Non-Profit in D.C. that mailed out Two Million Absentee Ballot Applications in Virginia (and many millions more in other states in 2020). These third-party mailings are legal in Virginia and encouraged by the Dept. of Elections. In the case of CVI, they used a UPS Store mailbox, in Richmond, VA, as the return address on their envelope to make it look like they were a local concern. I found UPS Store mailbox addresses for them in 10 states, and found out that they mailed out millions of Absentee Ballot Applications in at least 25 states. They have a close relationship with the USPS who provided them with a list of undeliverable mail that we call “Unlikely Voters”.

We are continuing to conduct research to determine if votes were somehow cast for those voters. We presently have a FOIA request to the USPS to obtain whatever lists have been provided to this organization. As a result of this research, I collaborated on an article by the Capital Research Center about this theory, and found a tremendous amount of information about CVI on Influence Watch. A link to the article is here: https://capitalresearch.org/article/did-the-center-for-voter-informationintervene-illegally-in-the-2020-election/

The Center for Tech and Civic Life –This entity began as a small, Left-Leaning, Non-profit in Chicago, identified and discussed by the Capital Research Center’s President, Scott Walter, during his
testimony before the Georgia state legislature in December 2020. CTCL is the organization that distributed the $400 Million Zuckerberg grants to election offices targeted in key counties in
battleground states during the 2020 election. Following that presentation, I researched the the CTCL website and found the 39 Counties/Cities that received grants in Virginia. With that information, I conducted Google searches and FOIA requests propounded to each of the counties requesting from them the amount of the grant received by each location. The 39 grants totaled approximately $4 Million in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Of that, $3.6 Million was provided to locations carried by Biden and only $400,000 for locations that Trump won. I also found out that CTCL had previously provided free training to local election officials in the Spring of 2020 regarding voting systems, which was encouraged by the Dept. Of Elections. Once the training was conducted, CTCL then offered Zuckerberg grants to those localities. In fact, with further research, I learned that CTCL is a training partner for the Election Assistance Commission, a non-partisan federal government commission. Again, I collaborated on an article by the Capital Research Center about the CTCL Grants in Virginia. Those reports are included here: https://capitalresearch.org/article/how-mark-zuckerberg-meddled-invirginias-2020-election/

Ballot Scouts – I reviewed a post-election report from the Dept. of Elections and found this organization. Many states use Ballot Scouts to track their Absentee/Mail-In Ballots. I went to Influence Watch and found that Ballot Scouts is owned by Democracy Works, a Left-Leaning Non-Profit. The Influence Watch website has an extensive description of the structure and funding for Democracy Works.

Democracy Works – As well as Ballot Scouts, they run the Voting Information Project, that according to Influence Watch provides users with locations for voting and information on their region’s
ballot. The Voting Information Project is included in the toolkit for the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, a non-partisan government commission.

Verified Voting – Virginia conducted a “Risk Limiting Audit” (which is a relatively new invention of left wing election activities and is generally meaningless as it does not actually audit anything and is essentially a waste of time) after the November 2020 election that was conducted by Verified Voting. This organization according to Influence Watch, is a Left-Leaning Non-Profit that is supported by the Democracy Alliance, a group of progressive, left-wing donors that has funded hundreds of millions of dollars into changing the American electorate to ensure their ‘progressive’ vision for the country.

Voting Works – In the same Risk Limiting Audit Report, I found out that the program that was used for the audit is called Arlo and the vendor is Voting Works, a Left-Leaning, Non-Profit according to Influence Watch, that is funded by a George Soros organization. Also, according to Influence Watch, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security partnered with Voting Works to pilot the use of its vote verification software in six battleground states during the November 2020 election.

The Center For Voter Information (recently mailed 2.1 Million Absentee Ballot Applications in Virginia) a Left-Wing, Non-Profit that is operating in Florida. The return address on their mail pieces is 800 Ocala Rd., Ste. #300 #318, Tallahassee, FL 32304. This is not a physical address, but a UPS Store mailbox. Another is The Center for Tech and Civic Life which has distributed $18 Million in Zuckerberg Grants in Florida.

As usual with the left they have names/titles that sound great but their purposes are strictly to push leftist/Marxist agendas.

VIDEO: Florida Sheriff states, ‘Evil Can Never Be Dead Enough’

Brevard Sheriff Wayne Ivey Releases Dashcam of Deputy-Involved Shooting. Sheriff Ivey states, “Evil Can Never Be Dead Enough.”

Space Coast Daily reports:

SHERIFF IVEY: This suspect is a perfect example of what is wrong with our Criminal Justice System as he is a Registered Career Criminal with 23 felony arrests and 17 misdemeanor arrests for narcotics trafficking, aggravated assault with a weapon, robbery with a firearm, battery on law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and attempted first-degree felony murder.

[ … ]

This career criminal was actually out on bond and on our streets where he could attempt to kill our Deputies and put other lives at risk when he should have been locked safely behind bars a long time ago where he couldn’t victimize another citizen or innocent bystander. Why is a thug with this kind of criminal history even given a bond where he can be out on our streets to harm someone else?
