EPISODE 119: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:44) OF McGONIGAL, DERIPASKA, AND MANAFORT, Part 1: Even at this late date, the ex-FBI executive arrested Saturday, Charles McGonigal, could put Donald Trump in jail forever. McGonigal is not only facing prison for working for Russian oligarch and election conspiracist Oleg Deripaska, but when the FBI revived the "But Her Emails" smear against Hillary Clinton 11 days before the 2016 election and three days later leaked it had "cleared" Trump, McGonigal was the head of the FBI's 2016 Trump-Russia investigation. He's the centerpiece of TWO of the plots to install Trump, and his arrest should start the entire investigation of the Trump-Russia Conspiracy. B-Block (13:34) OF McGONIGAL, DERIPASKA, AND MANAFORT, Part 2: McGonigal, like Paul Manafort, became an employee of Putin crony Deripaska. It's time again to examine Manafort, in bed with Deripaska to the tune of $60,000,000 and appearing in front of Tom Barrack right after Trump lost the Iowa Caucuses saying "I've got to GET TO TRUMP." His story, and the timeline that led McGonigal to a prison cell. C-Block (31:55) OF McGONIGAL, DERIPASKA, AND MANAFORT, Part 3: Suddenly the picture looks so familiar: emails, a computer, gaslighting. It's time to remember the horrible feeling of the morning the sun did not rise: November 9, 2016, and to launch either a Senate or Presidential investigation of the successful Trump-Russia plot to install him in the White House before they succeed again.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior

Gaslit Nation has been studying Russian oligarch-aiding FBI traitors since our podcast launched in 2018, and what did we get for our diligent efforts? Yet another traitor! This week we discuss the indictment of Charlie McGonigal, the former top counterintelligence official in the New York field office who was secretly working for mega-oligarch Oleg Deripaska while pretending to investigate him. (You may remember Deripaska from our classic T-shirt slogan “You can't make a deal with the guy who won the aluminum wars in the car bomb 1990s in Russia, you just can't.” Rolls right off the tongue!)   We analyze the McGonigal case in the context of familiar Gaslit Nation topics – the top heads of the FBI who went on to work for the Russian mafia, how James Comey betrayed America to serve Semyon Mogilevich, the strange behavior of the FBI and the media during the 2016 election, the partnership between Deripaska and Paul Manafort, the partnership between Deripaska and Mitch McConnell, the desire of McConnell to make Merrick Garland head of the FBI as all this illegal activity was transpiring, and how the McGonigal case and general FBI treason affects Russia's war on Ukraine. This episode was recorded during our second ever Gaslit Nation Live Event and we thank everyone who showed up for this historic occasion!   For our bonus, which will be out on Friday, we answered a LOT of questions from our Patreon subscribers! You can listen to our Q & As if you subscribe at the Truth-Teller level or higher, and you can send in your own question and get it answered in depth by subscribing at the Democracy Defender level or higher.   Times are tough in media, politics, and life and we are VERY grateful to you for keeping our show going!

In our latest profile episode, we provide an overview of the life of pastor & public intellectual Reinhold Niebuhr, who was something we rarely see today - a clergyman who became an important figure on the political Left. Niebuhr led a Protestant church in Detroit, Michigan during the 1910s & 1920s. From his pulpit, he spoke out against the Ku Klux Klan and in favor of organized labor. During the 1940s & 1950s, Niebuhr moved away from pacifism & socialism and became a more mainstream Cold War liberal. He became one of the founders of the anti-Communist ADA organization and wrote books expressing a "Christian realist" view of foreign policy. With the arrival of the turbulent 1960s, Niebuhr reconsidered his support for US Cold War policies overseas; he spoke out in favor of the civil rights movement & against the Vietnam War until his death in 1971. In recent years, his writings have drawn a diverse group of admirers that include Barack Obama & James Comey.Support the show

[00:30] Trump Reinstated on Twitter (22 minutes) The talking heads are losing their minds over Elon Musk reinstating Donald Trump's Twitter account, even though Trump has said he doesn't plan to use it. CBS, which paused its tweets for 24 hours because of “security concerns” after Musk's decision, is finally getting around to reporting some truth about the Hunter Biden laptop story—two years late. Meanwhile, more Republicans are publicly turning into RINO never-Trumpers, leaving Trump virtually alone. [22:50] DOJ's Newest ‘Get Trump' Investigation (14 minutes) Following Trump's 2024 presidential run announcement, the Department of Justice announced the appointment of yet another special counsel to investigate Trump. The special counsel, Obama-era radical Jack Smith, will look into Trump's possession of the documents taken in the Mar-a-Lago raid and his role in the January 6 Fed-surrection. Based on the precedent set by James Comey and Robert Mueller, appointing a special counsel means the DOJ has no evidence a crime was committed—it just wants to continue feeding the media anti-Trump propaganda until the 2024 election.

Robert Mueller's One Weird Trick to destroy the FBI Ep_416

THE THESIS: Rigging elections takes a lot of planning and money. But, for the experienced Paper-Bully, pick-pocketing a nation's sovereignty only requires some pen strokes. That may not have been Robert Mueller's design, but he seems pleased enough with the result. He's not alone in the tactic, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy use it to control the Republican Party to keep it away from conservatives and Tony Fauci used to force harmful, deadly mRNA injections upon Americans. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: The fewer people contributing to decisions in a nation, the less happy will be the peopleProverbs 11:14Where there is no guidance the people fall,But in abundance of counselors there is victory.Proverbs 15:22Without consultation, plans are frustrated,But with many counselors they succeed.THE NEWS & COMMENT:Hillary pretends taking a matter of voting regulation before the Supreme Court is a plan to steal an election. But, whom does Hillary propose to settle such issues? She doesn't. She wants a bottleneck of power, she wants City-States, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, New Jersey to pick the President and she wants the President to hold unlimited powers. [AUDIO] - HILLARY CLINTON: “Right wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election.”Mitch McConnell loves his bottleneck of power. He uses it to forfeit elections of promising conservatives. We don't really have a Senate, we have McConnell; he largely controls which bills make it to the floor. Lobbyists point their money into Mitch's bottlenecks and he uses it to keep Americans from having conservative leaders. New Hampshire's Don Bolduc Is The Latest Casualty In McConnell's Crusade Against ‘America First' CandidatesThe woman who has her job because she self-identifies as a “woman” and, despite not having a degree in human biology or even sociology, claims to possess “blackness” does her job of lying for a Figurehead. Today, it was part of her job to make-believe Georgia is suppressing the vote. In this case, they want no bottlenecks and no controls. Her cabal wants anything on a piece of paper that says “Democrat” to count. Funny, they all want bottlenecks protecting their power until it comes to the voting booth, then they want to flood the system like Cloward-Piven described. [AUDIO] - Reporter: "President Biden last year likened the new Georgia voting law to 'Jim Crow in the 21st century' but turnout so far has smashed midterm records."Jean-Pierre: "High turnout and voter suppression can be happening at the same time.". . . rigging elections takes a lot of work and talk. Joe Concha: “Chilling…. Election deniers are moderating The View.” [AUDIO] - Cruz: "Hillary Clinton, who stood up and said, Trump stole the election. Or Stacey Abrams who said that the election was stolen. They sat here and said it was illegitimate-"Whoopi: "And it was."But, the Country has been stolen, not just in rigged elections, but in private meetings of Paper-Bullies. This is an extraordinarily good, six-minute read:How Robert Mueller Empowered The FBI To Take Out Presidents, Protesters, And Pro-Life Dads"Robert S. Mueller III was at Camp David the Saturday morning after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Just days into his tenure as FBI director, he was humiliated when President George W. Bush dismissed his reporting and said he wanted him to prevent another attack. After his experience at Camp David, Mueller resolved and resolutely set about to change the FBI's 'culture.' That's the word he used. He was going to make it into an intelligence agency, or in his repeated terminology, an 'intelligence-driven”'organization.Although Mueller as a federal prosecutor had worked with dozens of special agents — case agents — in both Boston and San Francisco as a federal prosecutor, he did not know FBI culture nor how the bureau functioned. He also displayed hostility to SACs, the special agents in charge of each of the bureau's 50-plus field offices.PENTTBOM, the bureau's codename for the 9/11 investigation, would thus become the first case in the history of the FBI run from headquarters. It set a bad precedent, which would yield poisonous fruit in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and then in the Russia collusion fiasco. After the attacks of Sept. 11, Bush ordered the Office of Personnel Management to allow retired federal law enforcement and intelligence officers to return to active duty — security clearances and all. Mueller was the only head of a federal law enforcement or intelligence agency who refused to enact the order. The CIA, we learned, went in whole hog, reinstating those who had language — or country-specific — skills and experiences. There were former agents with those skills. Robert 'Bob' Quigley was both a bomb expert and an Arabic speaker. He volunteered; the FBI did not respond. Mueller was changing course, and he didn't want anyone around who was less likely to buy into his centralized, “intelligence-driven” paradigm. Hence, in the Mueller/Comey years, we saw non-agents running public affairs and congressional affairs and serving as general counsel — all positions where the ugliness of Crossfire Hurricane and its aftermath were manifest. So, as John Durham's Sept. 15, 2021, indictment of Hillary Clinton lawyer Michael Sussmann showed us, we had FBI General Counsel James Baker, a non-agent, accepting misdirection from Sussmann. An agent would have known how to interview Sussmann. Baker, sitting alone with Sussmann in his Hoover Building office, didn't even think to bring an agent into the room. And in the summer of 2021, the IG reported on the misconduct of Jill C. Tyson, another non-agent who was brought in to run congressional affairs. She carried on a sexual liaison with a subordinate, which disrupted the workplace and demonstrated cultural rot at FBI Headquarters. Mueller had sufficient time to do his damage. His 10-year term was to end in September 2011. The U.S. Congress passed in July 2011 and then President Barack Obama signed into law a special exemption granting Mueller an additional two-year term. He served a total of 12 years, a term exceeded only by J. Edgar Hoover. Mueller recruited James Comey to be his successor as FBI director. In 2013, Mueller regaled the executive conference — a meeting of the bureau's most senior executives — with his account of a conversation with Comey. Then the deputy attorney general, Comey expressed hesitancy in accepting a “demotion” to become FBI director. Mueller demonstrated how he drew an organization chart on a napkin, showing the director reporting directly to the AG, bypassing the deputy. According to those in his audience, Mueller seemed to find that funny. What is not funny is the amount of damage Comey proceeded to inflict on the FBI until he was dismissed by President Trump on May 9, 2017. Mueller's change in culture — from a law enforcement to an intelligence mindset — was greatly exacerbated by Comey's poor leadership, leading the FBI into the ugly morass of the Russia Collusion hoax."Exclusive: Federal Judge Raises Questions About Why Intelligence Operative Not Charged in Gaetz Extortion Scheme"The federal judge presiding over the case of the extortion scheme targeting Rep. Matt Gaetz's father raised questions as to why an intelligence operative involved in the crime hasn't been charged, according to court transcripts.In the sentencing hearing for long-time con man Stephen Alford, who was charged in the Gaetz extortion case and sentenced to five years in prison, federal Judge Margaret Casey Rodgers questioned why former military intelligence officer and State Department contractor Bob Kent — who was involved in virtually every step of the crime — was not charged as well, saying she disagrees that there isn't the evidence for it.We can see the fruits of Mueller's attack on distributed powers--his creation of a bottleneck--everywhere we look in today's FBI. I am sure there are many more good agents like Steven Friend trying to rescue the agency. But, how can they when Mueller and Comey has stripped actual cops of influence and built the powerbase around careerist bureaucrats. Cops are generally people who choose to serve rather than be served; they protect people. Careerist bureaucrats protect organizations and careers . . . their careers. They do that with bottlenecks.

In a recent episode, we discussed part one of the establishment's sudden response to Trump's unexpected presidency in January 2017. Today, we run through part two of the timeline as it simply could not be encompassed in one show. As we noted previously, the hard reality is that the Intelligence Community, the Obama administration, and the political establishment never expected Trump to win. And when he did win, the intelligence community was suddenly faced with a very real problem. How do they cover up their actions? Their answer was to set out to destroy Trump's presidency. Or at least fatally hobble, or even cripple, the new Trump administration. As we stated in our previous show, the timeline of the establishment's actions in the first few months of 2017 tells the story of an establishment response to the very real threat that the young Trump administration presented to the long-standing, and corrupt, political structure of our nation. By way of quick recap, events were set in motion during a Jan. 5 meeting in Obama's office that included FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Vice President Joe Biden, and national security adviser rSusan Rice. Comey's first action was to tell Congress on Jan. 10, 2017, that he could neither confirm nor deny an investigation into Trump—despite privately telling Trump that he was not under investigation. But it was Jan. 12 that marked some of the most crucial events that would shape things to come. ⭕️Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

Without further adieu, let’s get to the news… what’s going on in California? https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/policy/energy-environment/californians-asked-keep-ac-at-78-nix-electric-vehicle-charges-spare-grid Californians asked to keep AC at 78 and nix electric vehicle charges to spare grid California grid operators warned residents to prepare for voluntary energy cuts and other emergency measures, such as turning down the air conditioning and forgoing electric vehicle charges, as the state braces for a period of excessive heat expected to last through Tuesday. The California Independent System Operator said in a statement it is taking measures to bring “all available resources” online ahead of the heat wave, which is expected to be the longest and most severe high-heat period to hit the state so far this year. An excessive heat warning is in effect through much of Southern California, with the National Weather Service warning of “dangerously hot” conditions that could climb as high as 115 degrees in some parts of the state. Meanwhile, temperatures in Northern California are expected to be 10-18 degrees warmer than usual. This could include asking residents to set thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, avoid large appliance use and EV charging, and turn off unnecessary lights between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m, when the grid is the most stressed. Lowering power usage during that time will ease the strain on the grid, officials said, and prevent “more drastic measures, including rotating power outages.” https://thepostmillennial.com/fbi-employees-have-lost-confidence-in-christopher-wray-call-for-him-to-resign?utm_campaign=64487 FBI employees have 'lost confidence' in Christopher Wray, call for him to resign Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel have lost confidence in Trump-nominated Director Christopher Wray and are calling for his resignation, a former agent has revealed. Kurt Siuzdak, an ex-FBI agent who now works as a lawyer representing whistleblowers at the bureau, claimed that current agents are saying that Wray has lost control of the agency and that they do not see how he can continue in his position. "I'm hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau," Siuzdak told the Washington Times. Former President Donald Trump nominated Wray in 2017, after firing then-director James Comey who was investigating his links to Russia. Siuzdak left the FBI after nearly 25 years working as an agent last March, due to what he sees as politicized leaders who were not being held accountable, reported the Daily Mail. According to the Daily Mail report, FBI agents claimed in disclosures to Congress that Wray would be made aware of problems within the bureau but never attempted to solve them. Some of the reported problems that Wray allegedly ignored were agents being forced or coerced into signing false affidavits, claims of sexual harassment and stalking, and the fabrication of terrorism cases to elevate performance statistics. In response to Siuzdak's allegations, the FBI said in a statement to the Washington Times, "The men and women of the FBI work hard every day to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution. All employees are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct, and we expect them to focus on process, rigor, and objectivity in performance of their duties. "Allegations of misconduct are taken seriously and referred to the Inspection Division or appropriate investigative body. In reality, the FBI is comprised of 37,000 employees who do it the right way on a daily basis to keep our nation safe by fighting violent crime, preventing terrorist attacks and defending America from espionage and cyber threats," the statement continued. Siuzdak's claims came soon after the resignation of Timothy Thibault, the FBI Assistant Special Agent in charge of the Hunter Biden laptop investigation, over accusations of political bias. Thibault reportedly retired from the bureau last Friday and was escorted out of the building. https://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2022/08/30/cnner-claims-gun-ownership-america-homeland-security-problem CNNer Claims Gun Ownership in America a 'Homeland Security Problem' During an appearance on CNN’s Don Lemon Tonight on Monday, CNN national security Analyst Juliette Kayyem made the Orwellian suggestion that guns in America were a “homeland security problem.” But the craziness didn’t stop there as she claimed “responsible gun ownership” means you don’t own semi-automatic rifles and that gun manufacturers have made mass shootings “very sexy.” Kayyem’s Orwellian declaration against guns came in her opening comments when she was speaking with Lemon about a shooting at a grocery store in Oregon. https://cdn.mrctv.org/videos/101973/101973-480p.mp4 - Play Video 0:00-1:57 In either a brief moment of lucidity or playing Devil’s advocate, Lemon made the logical point that it’s “people's actions” that are “responsible” for mass shootings. “There are people who have access to guns who don't go off and just shoot people and rob stores,” he noted. Avoiding Lemon’s point, Kayyem opined about how the narrative for pushing gun control is changing and suggested those against taking away guns are for police getting murdered and were “often” the victims of mass shootings: As they were nearing the end of the segment, Lemon chided those who “think they're a badass when they're holding a gun,” and Kayyem took the opportunity to lash out at the National Rifle Association. Ignoring the fact that the NRA funds and organizes gun safety and training courses, she accused the organization of abandoning advocacy for “responsible gun ownership.” She then explained that her definition of “responsible gun ownership” meant people who “don't have weaponry … unnecessary in civilian society.” Hey, speaking of guns… https://www.theblaze.com/news/new-york-lawmakers-credit-card-companies-gun-sales New York lawmakers ask Mastercard and American Express to flag gun store purchases New York lawmakers believe they have found a way to reduce firearm trafficking and mass shootings. Approximately 50 legislators penned a letter to Mastercard and American Express, requesting that the companies flag purchases made at gun stores. Democratic state Senator Zellnor Myrie shared the letter with Gothamist and spoke about leading the effort. Myrie explained that he believed the public would agree with the lawmakers' request. While credit card companies do not track specific items purchased, they do use merchant category codes designated by retailer type. Mastercard's quick reference booklet notes that purchases made at a gun store fall under the "miscellaneous" or "durable goods" retailer codes. Those two MCCs also include vendors of gas lighting fixtures, musical instruments, fireworks, party supplies, and luggage, to name a few. The letter drafted to Mastercard and American Express requested that gun retailers have their own merchant category code instead of sharing it with other non-firearm-related vendors. This modification would allow credit card companies – and, consequently, the government – to closely track firearm and ammunition purchases. New York legislators argued that plenty of other retailers have a unique code, such as pawn shops, aquariums, and antique shops. They also noted that credit card companies have already been required to report suspicious activity to law enforcement since 1970. Myrie argued that a one-of-a-kind code would help authorities to spot suspicious purchasing activity, which could prevent mass shootings and gun trafficking. Further, he stated that law-abiding citizens have "absolutely nothing to worry about." Story Real Estate: Home. It’s where you build your legacy.

The plan, put in place to build a "more inclusive future," is set to cost $100 million over the next five years. According to the Liberals, the plan will "prioritize and sustain 2SLGBTQI+ community action by supporting 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations in advocating for and serving the communities they represent." Goals of the plan include advancing 2SLGBTQI+ rights both in Canada and around the world via laws such as the recently passed criminalization of conversion therapy, as well as using data and investing in awareness campaigns to "improve understanding of 2SLGBTQI+ communities and issues." The cost of the action plan was accounted for in the 2022 federal budget, and on Sunday, Trudeau unveiled exactly where the money would be going. The bulk of the funding, $75 million, was set aside for 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations, with prioritization given to those "experiencing additional marginalization," such as "Black, racialized, and Indigenous 2SLGBTQI+ communities," as well as those "with disabilities, seniors, youth, official language minority communities, and those living in rural communities." Defence Minister Anita Anand applauded the plan, saying it would "help us build a Canada where everyone is free and welcome to be their true, authentic selves." The government justified their choice to use the acronym 2SLGBTQI+ noting that is it "more inclusive and places the experiences of Indigenous 2SLGBTQI+ communities at the foreground as the first 2SLGBTQI+ peoples in North America." https://www.theepochtimes.com/illegal-immigrant-children-being-placed-with-strangers-says-whistleblower_4701389.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Illegal Immigrant Children Being Placed With Strangers, Says Whistleblower Unaccompanied children who cross the U.S. border alone are potentially being placed in dangerous situations due to the lax vetting of the adults they’re being handed off to, says a whistleblower who works with a company that transports the minors around the United States. An unaccompanied child who crossed the U.S. border illegally without a parent or guardian is processed by Border Patrol and then transferred to Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement is responsible for placing the child with a vetted sponsor in the United States—usually a parent or relative, but not always, says the whistleblower. “There’s no proper vetting right now saying, ‘Hey, these kids are really related to this person.’ No. That could be a child offender, sex offender wanting to take one of these kids into their homes—and the government will let it happen,” the whistleblower told Savanah Hernandez, a Texas-based reporter who runs a podcast called Rapid Fire. The whistleblower alleges in the interview that he works for MVM, Inc., a Virginia-based private security company that contracts with the federal government to escort children throughout the United States from border regions. He estimates the company is currently transporting between 2,000 and 5,000 children every week from Texas to sponsors around the country. They often travel at night and to small, regional airports. HHS started releasing data on the number of unaccompanied minors it was housing in March 2021 as the volume overwhelmed border facilities, which aren’t designed as shelters for children. By April last year more than 20,000 children were in HHS custody at one time, waiting for sponsor placement—at a taxpayer cost of at least $60 million per week.

We can’t wait to fellowship, sing Psalms, and celebrate God’s goodness in Knoxville October 6-8. Without further adieu, let’s get to the news… what’s going on in California? https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/policy/energy-environment/californians-asked-keep-ac-at-78-nix-electric-vehicle-charges-spare-grid Californians asked to keep AC at 78 and nix electric vehicle charges to spare grid California grid operators warned residents to prepare for voluntary energy cuts and other emergency measures, such as turning down the air conditioning and forgoing electric vehicle charges, as the state braces for a period of excessive heat expected to last through Tuesday. The California Independent System Operator said in a statement it is taking measures to bring “all available resources” online ahead of the heat wave, which is expected to be the longest and most severe high-heat period to hit the state so far this year. An excessive heat warning is in effect through much of Southern California, with the National Weather Service warning of “dangerously hot” conditions that could climb as high as 115 degrees in some parts of the state. Meanwhile, temperatures in Northern California are expected to be 10-18 degrees warmer than usual. This could include asking residents to set thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, avoid large appliance use and EV charging, and turn off unnecessary lights between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m, when the grid is the most stressed. Lowering power usage during that time will ease the strain on the grid, officials said, and prevent “more drastic measures, including rotating power outages.” https://thepostmillennial.com/fbi-employees-have-lost-confidence-in-christopher-wray-call-for-him-to-resign?utm_campaign=64487 FBI employees have 'lost confidence' in Christopher Wray, call for him to resign Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel have lost confidence in Trump-nominated Director Christopher Wray and are calling for his resignation, a former agent has revealed. Kurt Siuzdak, an ex-FBI agent who now works as a lawyer representing whistleblowers at the bureau, claimed that current agents are saying that Wray has lost control of the agency and that they do not see how he can continue in his position. "I'm hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau," Siuzdak told the Washington Times. Former President Donald Trump nominated Wray in 2017, after firing then-director James Comey who was investigating his links to Russia. Siuzdak left the FBI after nearly 25 years working as an agent last March, due to what he sees as politicized leaders who were not being held accountable, reported the Daily Mail. According to the Daily Mail report, FBI agents claimed in disclosures to Congress that Wray would be made aware of problems within the bureau but never attempted to solve them. Some of the reported problems that Wray allegedly ignored were agents being forced or coerced into signing false affidavits, claims of sexual harassment and stalking, and the fabrication of terrorism cases to elevate performance statistics. In response to Siuzdak's allegations, the FBI said in a statement to the Washington Times, "The men and women of the FBI work hard every day to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution. All employees are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct, and we expect them to focus on process, rigor, and objectivity in performance of their duties. "Allegations of misconduct are taken seriously and referred to the Inspection Division or appropriate investigative body. In reality, the FBI is comprised of 37,000 employees who do it the right way on a daily basis to keep our nation safe by fighting violent crime, preventing terrorist attacks and defending America from espionage and cyber threats," the statement continued. Siuzdak's claims came soon after the resignation of Timothy Thibault, the FBI Assistant Special Agent in charge of the Hunter Biden laptop investigation, over accusations of political bias. Thibault reportedly retired from the bureau last Friday and was escorted out of the building. https://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2022/08/30/cnner-claims-gun-ownership-america-homeland-security-problem CNNer Claims Gun Ownership in America a 'Homeland Security Problem' During an appearance on CNN’s Don Lemon Tonight on Monday, CNN national security Analyst Juliette Kayyem made the Orwellian suggestion that guns in America were a “homeland security problem.” But the craziness didn’t stop there as she claimed “responsible gun ownership” means you don’t own semi-automatic rifles and that gun manufacturers have made mass shootings “very sexy.” Kayyem’s Orwellian declaration against guns came in her opening comments when she was speaking with Lemon about a shooting at a grocery store in Oregon. https://cdn.mrctv.org/videos/101973/101973-480p.mp4 - Play Video 0:00-1:57 In either a brief moment of lucidity or playing Devil’s advocate, Lemon made the logical point that it’s “people's actions” that are “responsible” for mass shootings. “There are people who have access to guns who don't go off and just shoot people and rob stores,” he noted. Avoiding Lemon’s point, Kayyem opined about how the narrative for pushing gun control is changing and suggested those against taking away guns are for police getting murdered and were “often” the victims of mass shootings: As they were nearing the end of the segment, Lemon chided those who “think they're a badass when they're holding a gun,” and Kayyem took the opportunity to lash out at the National Rifle Association. Ignoring the fact that the NRA funds and organizes gun safety and training courses, she accused the organization of abandoning advocacy for “responsible gun ownership.” She then explained that her definition of “responsible gun ownership” meant people who “don't have weaponry … unnecessary in civilian society.” Hey, speaking of guns… https://www.theblaze.com/news/new-york-lawmakers-credit-card-companies-gun-sales New York lawmakers ask Mastercard and American Express to flag gun store purchases New York lawmakers believe they have found a way to reduce firearm trafficking and mass shootings. Approximately 50 legislators penned a letter to Mastercard and American Express, requesting that the companies flag purchases made at gun stores. Democratic state Senator Zellnor Myrie shared the letter with Gothamist and spoke about leading the effort. Myrie explained that he believed the public would agree with the lawmakers' request. While credit card companies do not track specific items purchased, they do use merchant category codes designated by retailer type. Mastercard's quick reference booklet notes that purchases made at a gun store fall under the "miscellaneous" or "durable goods" retailer codes. Those two MCCs also include vendors of gas lighting fixtures, musical instruments, fireworks, party supplies, and luggage, to name a few. The letter drafted to Mastercard and American Express requested that gun retailers have their own merchant category code instead of sharing it with other non-firearm-related vendors. This modification would allow credit card companies – and, consequently, the government – to closely track firearm and ammunition purchases. New York legislators argued that plenty of other retailers have a unique code, such as pawn shops, aquariums, and antique shops. They also noted that credit card companies have already been required to report suspicious activity to law enforcement since 1970. Myrie argued that a one-of-a-kind code would help authorities to spot suspicious purchasing activity, which could prevent mass shootings and gun trafficking. Further, he stated that law-abiding citizens have "absolutely nothing to worry about." Story Real Estate: Home. It’s where you build your legacy.

The plan, put in place to build a "more inclusive future," is set to cost $100 million over the next five years. According to the Liberals, the plan will "prioritize and sustain 2SLGBTQI+ community action by supporting 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations in advocating for and serving the communities they represent." Goals of the plan include advancing 2SLGBTQI+ rights both in Canada and around the world via laws such as the recently passed criminalization of conversion therapy, as well as using data and investing in awareness campaigns to "improve understanding of 2SLGBTQI+ communities and issues." The cost of the action plan was accounted for in the 2022 federal budget, and on Sunday, Trudeau unveiled exactly where the money would be going. The bulk of the funding, $75 million, was set aside for 2SLGBTQI+ community organizations, with prioritization given to those "experiencing additional marginalization," such as "Black, racialized, and Indigenous 2SLGBTQI+ communities," as well as those "with disabilities, seniors, youth, official language minority communities, and those living in rural communities." Defence Minister Anita Anand applauded the plan, saying it would "help us build a Canada where everyone is free and welcome to be their true, authentic selves." The government justified their choice to use the acronym 2SLGBTQI+ noting that is it "more inclusive and places the experiences of Indigenous 2SLGBTQI+ communities at the foreground as the first 2SLGBTQI+ peoples in North America." https://www.theepochtimes.com/illegal-immigrant-children-being-placed-with-strangers-says-whistleblower_4701389.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Illegal Immigrant Children Being Placed With Strangers, Says Whistleblower Unaccompanied children who cross the U.S. border alone are potentially being placed in dangerous situations due to the lax vetting of the adults they’re being handed off to, says a whistleblower who works with a company that transports the minors around the United States. An unaccompanied child who crossed the U.S. border illegally without a parent or guardian is processed by Border Patrol and then transferred to Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement is responsible for placing the child with a vetted sponsor in the United States—usually a parent or relative, but not always, says the whistleblower. “There’s no proper vetting right now saying, ‘Hey, these kids are really related to this person.’ No. That could be a child offender, sex offender wanting to take one of these kids into their homes—and the government will let it happen,” the whistleblower told Savanah Hernandez, a Texas-based reporter who runs a podcast called Rapid Fire. The whistleblower alleges in the interview that he works for MVM, Inc., a Virginia-based private security company that contracts with the federal government to escort children throughout the United States from border regions. He estimates the company is currently transporting between 2,000 and 5,000 children every week from Texas to sponsors around the country. They often travel at night and to small, regional airports. HHS started releasing data on the number of unaccompanied minors it was housing in March 2021 as the volume overwhelmed border facilities, which aren’t designed as shelters for children. By April last year more than 20,000 children were in HHS custody at one time, waiting for sponsor placement—at a taxpayer cost of at least $60 million per week.

Each of them revealed weak spots in our institutions, including a tendency among people in positions of influence, power, and public information to filter what they know and what they should convey through the lenses of mass psychology and political analysis. Monkeypox isn't deadly or new, and yet the response too slow to contain the epidemic, and the communication around it from experts and professionals has been roundabout and convoluted. President Biden's former senior COVID adviser, and host of the podcast In The Bubble, Andy Slavitt joins to shed light on the Monkeypox outbreak, and on how political pressures brought to bear on leaders can warp decision making.
