Clapper: Obama Was Behind The Whole Thing

from ZeroHedge:

Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper admitted in a CNN interview Saturday that former President Obama instigated the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump and those in his orbit.

Speaking with CNN‘s Anderson Cooper, Clapper let slip:

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

The regulator concluded that Rothschild Bank was in “serious breach” of “due diligence, reporting and documentation requirements.”

San Francisco is a Sh*thole


from Paul Joseph Watson:

Automation Isn’t Nearly as Disruptive as You Might Think


from The Daily Bell:

Another day, another bloodcurdling report about how robots are going to steal all our jobs and smash all that is holy about the dignity of work. This time it’s from PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and they tell us that by the 2040s some 30 percent of jobs will be automated, perhaps 44 percent for those requiring a low level of education. Actually, the report isn’t quite as “woe is unto us” as it sounds, although it does contain a couple of crucial errors.

What the authors get right is that there will be economic growth over this time, which will help create new jobs to replace the ones lost to automation. It’s a logical conclusion; after all, we’ve been doing this automation of heft and grunt for 250 years now and there’s no particular reason to think that the underlying processes have changed.

Tommy Robinson Lawyer: Judge Did Not View Evidence, Islamists Threatening Acid Attack on Tommy’s Wife

by Liam Deacon, Breitbart:

The judge who rushed to send activist Tommy Robinson to jail did not even watch the full video in which he supposedly breached contempt of court laws, his lawyers have claimed.

He is currently being held in segregation for his own safety in prison, but a radical Islamic extemist has managed to deliver a message to his cell threatening to kill him and attack his wife with acid.

The message was reportedly from jailed terror supporter Sayful Islam, from Robinson’s hometown of Luton, and used his spouse’s full name, The Times reports.

After the speech calling for rich people to get smaller houses, Obama traveled back to America and to his $8.1 million eight-bedroom, nine-and-a-half bathroom mansion in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the world

I love when Liberals lecture us about ‘income inequality’, especially when those Liberals have multiple houses worth millions of dollars and pull down millions more in speaking fees. Nancy Pelosi, who said that the $2,000 Trump tax credit for working families was just ‘crumbs’, has a net worth of $100 million dollars. Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders has two beautiful home, and last year purchased a third home he and his wife use for vacation and entertaining. In his spare time, Sanders loves to rail against the rich. Hmm.

Forget Russian Collusion: Silicon Valley Is Waging Cyber Warfare At Home And Abroad

by Laura Loomer, Laura Loomer:

For all the talk about the Trump campaign colluding with Russia with zero evidence to support these erroneous allegations, the media has been silent on the war being waged in North America on our own soil. Silicon Valley controls social media and revenue streams that independent journalists, content creators, filmmakers and podcast channels use to supplement their income. The most recent display of overreach comes as the elites in tech have targeted Canadian Independent Journalist, Faith Goldy, who had her PayPal suspended as of July 16th, 2018. Faith tweeted, “Aaaaand I just got banned from PayPal… Thanks to those who were in my corner there. You can find me here.”

An Astonishing Snapshot Of How Twitter Wants To Manage Our Elections

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Virginia Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart was trending on Saturday due to his debate with Democrat Senator Tim Kaine.

I clicked the topic at around 12:30 PM, which was around an hour into the debate.

What Twitter’s algorithms decided to show was page after page of all negative comments, or at best neutral. The majority accused Stewart of being a racist, neo-nazi, white supremacist, white nationalist and so on.

Read It Again

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

Right here.

As many times as it takes before you get it, read that.

I don’t know if you’ll need to read it once, twice, 100 or 500 times.

But you had better read it as many times as it takes to sink in, and internalize what is there — because this is not opinion, it is fact and that fact is known to the powerful men (and women) who make decisions on which everything that occurs in this nation rests.

from RT:

In the second half of the show, Max interviews Galia Benartzi of about the recent $12-million hack on their network and the ensuing argument about decentralization.

Civil War Brews Within The Democratic Party As ‘New Face’ Of Party And Her ‘Cult Of Doom’ Ignore The Lessons Of History And Venezuela’s Current Death Spiral With No End In Sight

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

In this new story over at Zero Hedge, ‘Tyler Durden’ reports  that former Democratic Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman has just written a scathing editorial over at the Wall Street Journal brutally attacking the ‘rising star’ and ‘new face’ of the Democratic party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Just the latest ‘mainstream’ Democrat to attack the Democratic Socialist for what Lieberman calls her ‘radical views‘, Lieberman held no punches attacking Ocasio-Cortez as not only being uninformed on issues but claiming that her approach of government ownership of private companies would not only decimate the economy but put millions of Americans out of work.

Warning that Ocasio-Cortez’s platform is much more ‘socialist‘ than ‘Democratic‘, Lieberman’s story is more proof that a very real ‘civil war’ is now unfolding within the Democratic party with a huge group of former and life-long Democratic voters walking away from the Democratic party while the radical, pseudo-Marxist agenda becomes the rallying cry of the increasingly violent and hysterical far-left.

Dysfunctional & Disunited: The Coming CRASH of the EU

from Black Pigeon Speaks:

The Economy is Cracking Up. Are You?


by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:

Economic cracks big enough to drive a car industry into are opening up all over the globe. Trade gaps are opening up between major allies. Widening spreads between the dollar and other currencies are shredding emerging markets. As we start into summer, these cracks and several others described below have become big enough to get everyone’s attention, just as I said last year would become the situation.

I had, as readers here know, predicted the same for last summer but revised my timing to this summer after Trump was elected and the hope for tax cuts lit on fire one of the world’s greatest stock rallies. Those tax cuts are also creating another rapidly rising gap between government revenue and government spending.
