BREAKING DOJ has Obtained FISA Warrant to Spy on DC Journalists: Result 3 White House Leakers Caught

New York Post columnist John Crudele is out with a bombshell:
[A] Washington source of mine tells me... .the Justice Department has gotten a warrant from the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — also known as the FISA court — to conduct electronic surveillance on a group of journalists who’ve been the recipient of leaked information, the source said.

The journalists are not the target, according to my source — and I say, thank goodness for that. Instead, the Trump administration is looking for the leaker. Who could it be?

Some in the administration are focusing on a retired, high-ranking military officer who held important posts in the intelligence service, according to the source.

The possibly high-ranking leaker was getting some of his information from people inside the White House who were holdovers from the Obama administration, the source said.

Those White House leakers — said to be three people — have either already been fired or will soon be, the source claims.

And these cases, I’m told, have been turned over to the Justice Department for possible prosecution.

BLOWBACK House Probe of Trump-Russia Connections Results in Subpoenas Concerning Obama Staff Unmaskings

The House Intelligence Committee, as part of its Trump-Russia investigation, has subpoenaed the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about “unmasking” efforts during the Obama Administration, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The subpoenas seek information on requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power for names to be unmasked in classified material.The three didn’t personally receive subpoenas,

Typically, information about Americans intercepted in foreign surveillance is redacted, even in classified reports distributed within the government, unless a compelling need exists to reveal them.Unmasking is the act of an authorized government official requesting such a name be revealed to him for compelling reasons.

Suspicions are that the unmaskings of Trump campaign officials were done for political intelligence reasons rather than because of compelling national security reasons.

The House Intelligence Committee is one of two bodies currently probing the question of whether Russian meddled in the 2016 election and whether anyone from Presudent Trump’s campaign played a role. The Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting its own investigation.

A snippet:
In virtually every class, I was told that all scientific knowledge, and even science itself was founded on Western cultural constructions and was to be regarded as hegemonic. And since each of the world’s various cultural viewpoints were enmeshed in their own historicity, each respective one (especially the Western one) could only be understood in terms relative to all the others. Accordingly, objective truths did not exist. We were all taught that “reality” was the exact equivalent of how you perceive it.

Robert DeNiro Rips Trump World in Brown University Commencement Speech

Robert De Niro was awarded an honorary degree from Brown University over Memorial Day weekend.

 In a commencement speech, he decried what he sees as the country’s current state, which he put “in movie terms,” and called upon graduates to repair it. “When you started school, the country was an inspiring, uplifting drama,” he said. “You are graduating into a tragic, dumbass comedy. My advice is to lock the Van Wickle Gates and stay here. But if you do leave, work for the change. Work to stop the insanity. Start now so the Class of 2018 will graduate into a better world.”

Of course, there is zero chance DeNiro has any understanding of how to move the country in the direction of liberty. Indeed, he probably doesn't want to. He just wants his central planners in charge.

When it comes to movies, he has had a hit and miss career, with a couple of really strange ones. When it comes to understanding policy and liberty, he is just a man in the masses, who shouldn't even be mistaken for Mike Rowe.

The One Thing the "Intelligence" Community Leak About Kushner Does Tell Us About Team Trump

As I have previously reported, the Washington Post has published a story that, in early December, Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s presidential transition team and the Kremlin.

No doubt the WaPo story is coming from US intelligence sources. In the story, WaPo told us as much:
Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. 
So what does this definitely tell us?

That there were no back channel communications between the Trump campaign and the Russians during the election. Otherwise, Kushner would not have brought the topic up in such a ham-handed fashion in December. He would have used any previous back channel communication method to discuss more security for the communications. Not a new discussion with an apparently surprised Russian Ambassador Kislyak.

The "intelligence" community that hates Trump just gave Team Trump some pretty decent evidence that there was no back channel communication between Team Trump and Russia during the campaign. This is a bizarre attack on Kushner and Team Trump.

There is no logic here, It is just throwing scare headlines up against the wall.

Further, as I have previously pointed out, not even the masses believe a back-channel is going to do anything but ease tensions with Russia:
They don't really think Trump is going to sell Putin Detroit. They don't really think Trump is going to cut Putin in on withholding tax income. They don't even think that Trump has secretly agreed to put Putin on US social security.
Kushner was setting up a back-channel to talk a deal over Syria and sanctions on Russia, These are noble causes to discuss. They are not unsimilar to back-channels in previous administrations.

And, I repeat, if Kushner was just attempting to set this back-channel up in December, the "intelligence" community leak just proved that the Trump administration did not have a back-channel before the election.

Trump Issues Statement on Jared Kushner

In a statement to The New York Times on Sunday night, President Trump said in the wake of reports that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, attempted to set up back-channel communications with the Russians:
 Jared is doing a great job for the country. I have total confidence in him. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person.

But The New York Times reports:
It has been duly noted in the White House that Mr. Trump, who feels that he has been ill served by his staff, has increasingly included Mr. Kushner when he dresses down aides and officials, a rarity earlier in his administration and during the campaign.

The most serious point of contention between the president and his son-in-law, two people familiar with the interactions said, was a video clip this month of Mr. Kushner’s sister, Nicole Meyer, pitching potential investors in Beijing on a Kushner Companies condominium project in Jersey City. At one point, Ms. Meyer — who remains close to her brother — dangled the availability of EB-5 visas to the United States as an enticement for Chinese financiers willing to shell out $500,000 or more.

For Mr. Trump, Ms. Meyer’s performance violated two major rules. Politically, it undercut his immigration crackdown, and in a personal sense, it smacked of profiteering off Mr. Trump — one of the sins that warrants expulsion from his orbit.

In the following days, the president made several snarky, disparaging comments about Mr. Kushner’s family and the visas during routine West Wing meetings that were clearly intended to express his annoyance, two aides said.

Mr. Kushner did not respond, at least not in earshot.

Through the Looking Glass:Jared Kushner, the Russians and the Leaks

Welcome to Trump World.

According to the Washington Post:
Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.

Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States for the communications.

The meeting also was attended by Michael Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser.


Mainstream media is giving this report major play as though a United States president has never used a back-channel before, which of course is absurd. Donna Brazile, who leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton, got in on the act and tweeted #ProtectOurDemocracy.

Rothbard: These Are the Best Libertarian Educators

By Joseph T. Salerno

[This article is part of a series of occasional posts which will explore the immense treasure trove of unpublished papers, lectures, memos, correspondence, and notes in the Rothbard Archives at the Mises Institute.]
In 1961, F. A. Harper of the William Volker Fund, and later the founder and president of the Institute for Humane Studies, asked Murray Rothbard to list and opine on the “outstanding libertarian educators of our time.” Rothbard responded in a letter dated July 9, 1961. 
Rothbard construed the term “education” to mean “informal influences as well as formal schooling,” and identified nine outstanding and two “marginal” educators, while dismissing several other prominent candidates. In order to understand Rothbard’s list, we should keep firmly in mind what Rothbard meant by the term “educator” as well as his and Harper’s definition of the word “libertarian.” Harper was not requesting, and Rothbard was not compiling, a list of economists or, more broadly, social scientists whose work greatly contributed to the scientific foundations of liberty. Rather he sought to identify those whose publications, teaching, or activism inspired others to study the science of liberty. Furthermore, although both Harper and Rothbard were themselves proponents of anarcho-capitalism, Rothbard’s list was open to those who had moved beyond the hoary and ad hoc classical laissez-faire prescription to rigorously and consistently quest for a society based on liberty, whether or not their desideratum was a stateless society.     
Rothbard seems to have discussed his choices in order of their importance for him. He listed

Dershowitz Slams Kushner Probe

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that reports that White House senior adviser Jared Kushner was under FBI scrutiny on Russia pointed to an inquiry that was "being done backwards" and "raises great concerns about civil liberties."

"Usually, you can point to a statute and say, 'We're investigating crime under this statute,'" Dershowitz told Anderson Cooper on CNN before referencing special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

"What Mueller seems to be doing is saying: 'We don't like what happened. Maybe there was some collaboration. But I can't figure out what statute was being violated.'

"When Hillary Clinton was being investigated, at least we knew what the statute was."

Jamie Gorelick, Kushner's lawyer, said that her client would cooperate with the probe.

"Mr. Kushner previously volunteered with Congress what he knows about these meetings," she said in a statement. "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry."

Dershowitz had some advice for Gorelick, whom he said was a former student.

"I would say, first to the investigators: 'Before you talk to my client, I want to know what your authority is. What your jurisdiction is.'"

Laking that foundation, Dershowitz likened the Kushner inquiry to the words of Joseph Stalin's secret police chief, Lavrentiy Beria: "Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime."

"I don't like criminal investigations to start on hoping that once you have the target, maybe we'll find the crime, maybe we'll find the statute – and if we can't find the statute, we'll stretch the statute to fit the person.

"I don't want to ever see that come to America."

Jared Kushner a "Focus" in the FBI Investigation of Russian Colusion

President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has now become a focus in the Russia investigation, reports NBC News.

Apparently, "focus" means the FBI wants to ask Kushner questions.

After the glaring headlines, mainstream media buries deep in their stories that "focus" does not mean he is suspected of committing a crime or that they are weighing charges. The FBI believes he can "supply information," whatever that means.

Kushner has met with at least two Russians in the recent past — Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Russian banker Sergey Gorkov.

It is not uncommon for aides of an incoming President to meet with foreign ambassadors. The meeting with Gorkov is a bit more curious but could have occurred for any number of reasons.

Philosophy Professor Arrested as Berkeley Antifa Bike Lock Attacker



Eric Clanton, 28, a former Diablo Valley and San Francisco State University philosophy professor, suspected in  Antifa bike lock attacks during an April free speech rally in Berkeley, was arrested for the attacks Wednesday afternoon in Oakland.

 Police said they have identified three victims in the case. All three were struck in the head or neck with a bike lock, police said.

 Clanton was initially “outed” as the attacker, following sleuthing work by participants on the altright website 4chan.

Clanton is being held on $200,000 bail after being booked into Berkeley City Jail.

“His work in political philosophy … centers on mass incarceration and the prison system,” his Diablo Valley faculty page entry read, though it has since been taken down. “He is currently exploring restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.”

In a March 2016 college lecture at Fort Lewis College, Clanton defended theft to students—stating that property law was “problematic,” further elaborating that shoplifting may be a political act.

Last summer, Clanton contributed to the left-leaning publication Counterpunch, where he defended Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of murdering a Philadelphia police officer 30 years ago.

A New "Must Read" Book on the USS Liberty False Flag Operation

A “heads up” from historian Robert Morrow
Phone: 512-306-1510:

A new must read book from Lyndon Johnson scholar Phil Nelson on LBJ and the USS Liberty murders. On sale now at Amazon, pre-order now for publication date of June 8, 2017, which happens to be the 50th anniversary of the LBJ-Israeli attack on the USS Liberty

Book is titled: Remember the Liberty!: Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas by Phil Nelson, published by Trine Day
\
From the blurb:
In the annals of US military history, there are no doubt many unsolved and perplexing mysteries, but few could compare to the fate of the US Navy spy ship that was mercilessly attacked by one of its closest allies intentionally and without warning. One of the reasons it is still a mystery is because it is also the only peacetime attack on a US naval vessel that, to this day, has never been investigated by the Congress of the United States.

The USS Liberty was a 455-foot, 10,150-ton electronic intercept spy ship, originally a standard-design Victory Ship--a more evolved version of the World War II Liberty Ships--which were built as supply ships, not intended for direct fighting. The Liberty had been converted to an Auxiliary Technical Research Ship (AGTR), known colloquially as a "spy ship," first deployed in 1965; its top speed was only 18 knots.

Yet the Liberty's fate, one of the most enigmatic, unresolved military mysteries of all time, is, paradoxically at its core, quite clear-cut and undisputed. The basic facts generally accepted by all are that, on the fourth day of the Six Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors (Egypt, Syria and Jordan), the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) savagely attacked the U.S. spy ship, the USS Liberty.

On the warm, sunny-bright day of June 8, 1967, starting at about 6:00 a.m., at least twelve, possibly thirteen Israeli aircraft of different types began surveilling the Liberty, some of which were only 1,000 feet or less in altitude, apparently to photograph and "map" her for later targeting purposes. The precision of the later attack could only have been accomplished through such pre-planning, specifically identifying the priority targets, starting with the gun mounts to render the ship defenseless, followed by all of the forty-five different radio antennae and related transmitting equipment. . Beginning just before 2:00 p.m., three unmarked French-built Mirage III-C swept-wing fighter jets, without warning, settled into a triangular formation, aimed straight at the Liberty and proceeded to bore down on the ship in a fast low-level attack that began with rockets targeted at the four gun mounts and heat-seeking missiles aimed at the communications gear, with their warmed transmitters. . When the attack was over, thirty-four men were dead and one hundred seventy-four were injured to varying degrees, some near death.

Unlike all other books ever written about the tragic attack - none of which provide a satisfactory explanation of what really caused it - Remember the Liberty! examines it in complete context of how it was positioned there by Johnson himself, for the very purpose of being attacked, and sunk, with every one of the 294 men on board going to the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. His purpose was to use that event - while blaming Egyptian President Gamal Nasser for the attack - as a pretext for joining Israel in the war, even at the risk of igniting World War III with the Soviet Union. This book provides the only realistic explanation for why Lyndon Johnson did what he did, and why, in the heat of battle, he intervened with his Navy officers who were determined to rescue the Liberty and ordered them to recall the squadrons of fighter jets they had already dispatched - twice, 90 minutes apart - for that purpose.

When the heroic crew saved the ship from sinking, it stopped Johnson's plan to join Israel in the war and thereby saved the world from certain nuclear conflagration. It also prevented his strategy of entering what he felt would be a "popular war" (unlike his other one in Vietnam) in order to give him a better chance to be reelected president the following year. When that failed to materialize, so did his reelection campaign; ten months later he was forced to announce his decision to not re-run for the office that he had always considered his destiny.

 Review

[Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Thomas H.] Moorer is right in saying that, if Americans were told the truth about what happened on June 8, 1967, they might be more discriminating in seeing through Israel's rhetoric and objectives..

This book makes a huge contribution toward those worthy ends.

~ Ray McGovern, former CIA Analyst and co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)

From the Author

The story of the attack on the USS Liberty is one of the most explosive and hidden secrets in U.S. history -- one that has never been previously told -- because the truth was too incriminating for the then-president, Lyndon B. Johnson.  The facts were withheld and replaced with lies which he created to hide his own treasonous conduct. No previous book on the subject has come close to providing a realistic explanation of  how it could occur because none has ever documented the fact that he was the primary instigator of that attack, and even the larger plan for Israel to attack its neighbors in what became the Six Day War. The veil of secrecy he designed has lasted fifty years and this book is the first of its kind to remove it.


After the botched plan to sink the Liberty was executed, thanks to its heroic crew, the ship refused to sink even after being hit by a torpedo, leading the attack to be cancelled and a massive cover-up invoked. Including severe threats for the crew members to "keep their lips sealed." That cover-up is barely still in place, and has now been completely exposed.

Remember the Liberty! examines the over-arching, larger story behind the attack on the ship and how Johnson had designed it as another false flag" operation intended to secure him another landslide election win the following year, just like he had done in 1964 with another false flag operation -- the faked "attack" by North Vietnam gunboats on two U.S. Navy destroyers at the Gulf of Tonkin. Much of the book was written by three of the survivors of the attack.   Finally, the truth is being told as never before and the real story revealed.

 

Melania Trump Reveals She is a Practicing Catholic

Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed to DailyMail.com on Wednesday, hours after Pope Francis blessed a rosary for her at the Vatican, that she is a practicing Catholic.

She spent time in prayer at the Vatican-affiliated Bambino Gesù (Baby Jesus) Hospital, and laid flowers at the feet of a statue of the Madonna.

She also prayed in the hospital chapel and read to a young Greek boy in need of a donor heart – holding his hand in the Intensive Care Unit while camera shutters snapped, according to the Daily Mail.

The boy who needed a heart.
'Upon landing in Belgium, I learned a young boy and his family who had been waiting for a heart transplant was informed that the hospital has found a donor,' she said in a statement.

'I read a book and held hands with this special little one just a few hours ago, and now my own heart is filled with joy over this news.'

HOT Republican Candidate 'Body-Slams' Reporter in Montana

The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting, “Get the hell out of here.”

Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire running for the seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.

Here's the audio:

Does Rand Paul Think Hillary Clinton Would Have Been a Better President Than Donald Trump?

Many libertarians during the presidential campaign supported Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton on the basis that Trump would be better when it comes to foreign policy.

This theme is now falling apart in dramatic fashion.

Rand Paul writes today in an Op-Ed at Breitbart:
Last year, Congress overwhelmingly passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) to allow the family members of those killed in the 9/11 attacks to sue the government of Saudi Arabia for any part it played in those acts of terrorism.

President Obama vetoed JASTA, but Congress voted to override the veto.

Now, less than a year after Congress voted to let the victims and the families of victims of 9/11 sue Saudi Arabia, the current administration is proposing the largest-ever arms sale to Saudi Arabia.

The arms sale allows the Saudis to immediately get nearly $110 billion in American weapons and an unimaginable $350 billion in arms over 10 years.

After the veto override, former U.S. Senator Bob Graham stated, “[F]rom what I know today, there is ample evidence that 9/11 would not have happened but for the assistance provided by Saudi Arabia.” He went on to say, “The results of that assistance was (nearly) 3,000 persons murdered, 90 percent of them Americans. And a new wave of terrorism with Saudi financial and operational support has beset the world.”

The sale includes laser-guided bombs in the form of Paveway II and III weapons systems, as well as Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM), guidance that converts unguided bombs into smart munitions.

Selling military weapons to questionable allies is not in our national security interest. At some point, the United States must stop and realize that we are fueling an arms race in the Middle East.

Even Hillary Clinton questioned the loyalty of Saudi Arabia in an email released by WikiLeaks, saying, “We need … to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”

WOW What is Debbie Wasserman Schultz Trying to Cover Up Now?


Justin is right this is really strange.

At a minimum, there is something on the laptop she is very concerned about.

 From the Daily Caller story:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.

The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation.

The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run technology for the Florida lawmaker since 2005 and was banned from the House network in February on suspicion of data breaches and theft...

Though on the surface Wasserman Schultz would have been a victim of Awan’s scam, she has inexplicably protected him, circumventing the network ban by re-titling him as an “adviser” instead of technology administrator.

Politico described him and his wife, Hina Alvi, as having a “friendly personal relationship” with both Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York.

That baffled a Democratic IT staffer, who said “I can’t imagine why she’d be that good of friends with a technology provider.”

“Usually if someone does bad stuff, an office is going to distance themselves” rather than incur political fallout for a mere staffer, he added. \

The last 30 seconds of the exchange can also be seen here.

Tulsi Gabbard Condemns New Arms Deal with Saudi Arabia

Congresswoman  Tulsi Gabbard  has issued a statement condemning the Trump Administration’s new $460 billion arms deal with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia—$110 billion immediately and $350 billion over the next 10 years.

“Saudi Arabia has spent hundreds of billions of dollars spreading their extreme Wahhabi Salafist ideology around the world, creating fertile ground for terrorist organizations like ISIS and al-Qaeda to recruit, while simultaneously providing direct support to terrorist groups who pose a direct threat to US interests and who are fighting to overthrow the Syrian government. The hypocrisy in the Trump administration’s actions toward Saudi Arabia began in February 2017 with the newly-appointed CIA Director Mike Pompeo presenting Saudi Crown Prince bin Nayef with the George Tenet Award in recognition of Prince bin Nayef’s ‘excellent intelligence performance, in the domain of counter-terrorism and his unbound contribution to realise world security and peace.’ This hypocrisy continues now as the Trump administration talks tough against ISIS and terrorism, while selling weapons to, supporting, and praising a country that beheads dissidents, oppresses women, persecutes religious minorities, atheists, and LGBT people, and is the greatest supporter of terror groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS in the world today. This arms deal will enable Saudi Arabia to use U.S.-made weapons in their war crimes against Yemeni civilians in a brutal civil war, and continue perpetuating human rights atrocities at home and abroad,” said Rep. Gabbard.

Politicians are in "Crisis,” Not the Ordinary American

Richard Ebeling emails:

Dear Bob,

I have a new article on the website of the Future of Freedom Foundation on, "Politicians are in ‘Crisis,” Not the Ordinary American."

Listening to the media and the political opinion pundits it seems as if “America” is in a serious and severe political, social and economic crisis brought on by the Trump Administration. Both Democrats and Republicans are in panic modes, though for different reasons.

But look around. The ordinary American is going about his normal, everyday life – going to work; shopping for personal and family needs; businesses continue to manufacture and market the goods we regularly buy; school is letting out for the summer and families are planning vacations. The list can go on. So where is the crisis and conflict?

Its in Washington, D.C. among the politicians, bureaucrats and special interest groups and their lobbyists – and most certainly in the mainstream media with the hysterics that dictatorship is about to descend on the United States, and government propaganda will replace a free press.

Trump is not a freedom revolutionary, but a populist, pragmatic protectionist and political planner. Besides the dislike of him personally because of his boorish and often offensive words and deeds, the crisis in America is consuming the elite establishment social engineers and political paternalists who fear that Trump’s version of the interventionist-welfare state – he is insisting in his new budget proposal that Social Security, Medicare and related programs are untouched, and the military budget will grow to preserve America’s foreign interventionist potentials and presence around the world – will be transformed into a form and type that would threaten their power, position and privilege as the guardians of how the government spend taxpayers’ money, on what and for whom, and upon which their re-election and position in “the system” is based.

“America,” meaning you and me and everyone else going about their personal and interactive affairs,” is not in crisis. But the political establishment that lives off other people’s money is, because of the threat of an outsider upstart who does not challenge the interventionist-welfare state, but would man and manipulate with other purposes in mind.

OMB Director Turns Into Ivanka Trump

What a disgrace.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. we were told, was a solid conservative.

That he would bring tight budget management to the Trump administration and a conservative free market perspective.

Instead, he is now justifying Ivanka Trump social justice programs.

During a press briefing on Monday at the White House, Mulvaney went on a rambling twisted justification for government paid parental leave:
By the way, people ask, you say, Mulvaney, you're used to be a Freedom Caucus guy, how can you support paid parental leave?  It goes right to the heart of the matter on 3 percent growth.  We need men and women who are sitting home thinking you know what, I don't know if I can go back to work because we're getting ready to have a kid.  And what happens if I have to stay home?  We try and create the environment where people are more comfortable going back to work and staying at work knowing that if they do have a child, they’ll be able to spend time with that child under the paid parental leave program.

Trump’s  budget proposal will include creating and funding a program that will give six weeks of paid time off for mothers and fathers following the birth or adoption of a child.

Families of all income levels would be included in the current proposed plan, though benefits would be capped for high earners, White House officials told the Washington Post.

The plan would be paid through the country’s unemployment insurance system and managed by individual states. It’s expected to benefit about 1.3 million parents and would cost about $25 billion over 10 years.

Reports WaPo, Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who also acts as an assistant to the president and has been a chief advocate for the policy inside the White House, is expected to play a central role in discussions about how to construct it.

Raimondo Rips "Donald of Arabia"

Justin Raimondo writes in an essay titled: Donald of Arabia: A Disgusting Spectacle:
 Has there been a more disgusting spectacle during the four months of this presidency than the sight of Donald Trump slobbering all over the barbarous Saudi monarch and his murderous family of petty princelings? It’s enough to make any normal American retch...
The old Trump told us that the Saudis were “mouth pieces, bullies, cowards,” who were “paying ISIS,” but now they’re our partners in the “war on terrorism.” Why it seems like only yesterday that he was calling out Saudi princes like Alwaleed bin Talal for thinking they can “control our US politicians” – today he’s kowtowing to them.
Meanwhile, the crazed neocon war hawk John Bolton tells us in a new op-ed that Trump's speech was a  "good start" for [more war]:
 Donald Trump made Saudi Arabia the first stop on his first presidential trip abroad for a reason. His speech Sunday in Riyadh was a principal factor in that decision, inviting as it does close comparison to Barack Obama’s June 2009, Cairo speech. Trump’s rhetoric wins hands down....

Once ISIS is eliminated from the territory it now holds in the region, the next strategic issue is countering Iran’s coalition, including its surrogates controlling Iraq’s government; the Assad regime in Syria; and Hezbollah in Lebanon (now extending into parts of Syria).

Preparing for possible conflict with Iran is very much on the minds of the Arab leaders Trump just met....

Trump’s speech brought welcome relief to his Arab audience after eight years of Obama’s blindness to Iranian and terrorist threats. But actions must follow. What he needs to accomplish most urgently is the expedited destruction of the ISIS “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria, followed by concrete steps to eliminate Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, and ultimately the ayatollah’s regime. If such actions follow his words, then his speech will have been a success.

And "hypnotist" Scott Adams remains completely under the Trump ether:
