WikiLeaks Raising $1 Million For Leaked Copy Of Mueller Report

DOJ staffers who like money and know where AG Barr keeps the keys to his safe, take note. WikiLeaks has launched a $1 million fundraiser over the next seven days “used to facilitate the full publication” of the long-awaited Mueller report, which was completed on Friday and submitted to Attorney General William Barr for review.  A summary of key findings is expected to reach Congress this weekend, which is expected to be made public. A release of the full report, however, will be up to Barr, the White House and Congress.  And while many on the left – including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer – are calling for the public release of the report so they can pick through its findings for “Gotchas!” to ride into 2020, conservatives are similarly calling for its release so they can finally put the conspiracy theory to rest and expose the investigation as a “witch hunt” once and for all.  How has it not been leaked yet — zerohedge (@zerohedge) March 22, 2019 Enter WikiLeaks:  ANNOUNCE: @WikiLeaks launches $1m goal for the full publication of the ‘Mueller report’.

Caitlin Johnstone Rages: “Mock The Russiagaters. Mock Them Ruthlessly”

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com, The Robert Mueller investigation which monopolized political discourse for two years has finally concluded, and his anxiously awaited report has been submitted to Attorney General William Barr. The results are in and the debate is over: those advancing the conspiracy theory that the Kremlin has infiltrated the highest levels of the US government were wrong, and those of us voicing skepticism of this were right. The contents of the report are still secret, but CNN’s Justice Department reporter Laura Jarrett has told us all we need to know, tweeting, “Special Counsel Mueller is not recommending ANY further indictments am told.” On top of that, William Barr said in a letter to congressional leaders that there has been no obstruction of Mueller’s investigation by Justice Department officials. So that’s it, then. A completely unhindered investigation has failed to convict a single American of any kind of conspiracy with the Russian government, and no further indictments are coming. The political/media class which sold rank-and-file Americans on the lie that the Mueller investigation was going to bring down this presidency were liars and frauds, and none of the goalpost-moving that I am sure is already beginning to happen will change that. Say it again: Mueller has indicted *zero* Americans for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election, which was central impetus for the Special Counsel in the first place....

SPLC Implodes: President And Legal Director Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal

The Southern Poverty Law Center – the “vicious left-wing attack dog” used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify “hate groups” – is unraveling.  A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims – with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism,” the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization’s legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday.  Morris Dees, Richard Cohen, Rhonda Brownstein Cohen had been with the organization 33 years and was one of its most prominent figures.  At 5:03 p.m. Friday, Cohen sent a message to staff, with the subject line “Stepping Down,” announcing that he, too, would be leaving the organization that he and Dees had turned into a research and fundraising juggernaut. “Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote, while asking the staff to avoid jumping to conclusions before the board completes an internal review of the Montgomery, Ala., organization’s work culture. –LA Times Earlier this week, the SPLC board of directors appointed Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen – who, in an unrelated matter, unsuccessfully tried to pull strings and have the Jussie Smollett case transferred from the Chicago PD to the FBI. Tchen is heading up the inquiry into the sexual misconduct claims.

French Military Authorized To Use Deadly Force On Yellow Vests If Lives Threatened

French soldiers embedded with Paris police will be allowed to ‘open fire’ if lives are threatened by Yellow Vest rioters this weekend, reports the Daily Mail, citing the military governor of Paris.  “They are perfectly capable of appreciating the nature of the threat and answering it in a proportionate manner,” said General Bruno Leray in a Friday interview with Franceinfo Radio. “If their life or that of the people they defend is threatened, they can go up to opening fire.”  As we reported Wednesday, French authorities announced the deployment of counter-terror troops from Opération Sentinelle to focus on Yellow Vest related threats following the worsening protest situation of the past weekend (after a brief lull at the end of President Macron’s failed ‘great debate’ initiative which pushed town halls to air grievances), which nearly turned deadly for random civilians caught in the mayhem of rioters clashing with police It has now been confirmed that the French Army will support some 5,000 police trying to keep order during the 19th Yellow Vest Saturday demonstration in a row in Paris at the weekend. General Leray told Franceinfo Radio on Friday: ‘If their life or that of the people they defend is threatened, they can go up to opening fire.’ –Daily Mail Opération Sentinelle began after the January 2015 Île-de-France attacks (the series of al-Qaeda linked terrorist acts that began with the Charlie Hebdo shooting) and resulted in some 10,000 soldiers and 4,700 police...

“No Thanks, We’ll Stick With Rails And Roads”: Virginia Bureaucrats Slam Musk’s Boring Company

After seeing Elon Musk’s demonstration of the Boring Company tunnel in person, Virginia transit officials scoffed at the idea and decided against using the company for planned infrastructure upgrades, the Virginia Mercury reported. Bureaucrats in Virginia instead decided in favor of using traditional railways and roads. Michael McLaughlin, Virginia’s chief of rail transportation, told members of the Commonwealth Transportation Board’s public transit subcommittee: “It’s a very small tunnel. If one day it’s feasible, we’ll obviously come back to you.” The board had been discussing major investments in the state’s infrastructure, including a $1.3 billion bridge between Virginia and Washington. Questions had arisen about the infrastructure investment, with board members trying to figure out if any investments could become obsolete if Musk’s Boring Company and Hyperloop ideas advanced beyond their current stages. Despite reportedly being skeptical, transit planners in Virginia couldn’t help but notice Musk’s announced partnership with the city of Chicago and a proposed plan to link Washington DC and Baltimore, with promises of “autonomous electric skates traveling at 125-150 miles per hour.” It was a far cry from the Model 3 with guidewheels doing 60 mph they saw during their visit.  Neither of these two projects have made any tangible progress and a Boring Company demo that Musk held earlier this year was widely mocked and ridiculed by the media and on social media.  Officials from Virginia took a drive through Musk’s...

First Lawsuit Filed Seeking To Make Mueller Report Public; Congress To See Conclusions This Weekend

Update2: Less than two hours after the release of the Mueller report, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit has been filed against the Department of Justice by the Electronic Privacy Information Center seeking its public release.  “The public has a right to know the full scope of Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election and whether the President of the United States played any role in such interference,” the government transparency advocacy group wrote in the lawsuit in DC federal court. “The public also has a right to know whether the President unlawfully obstructed any investigation into Russian election interference or related matters. The requested records are vital to the public’s understanding of these issues and to the integrity of the political system of the United States.” –CNN According to CNN, the group asked the DOJ for a large production of non-public records in the special counsel investigation, however the DOJ said it would need time to decide what to release.  Update: Lawmakers are expected to receive the report’s principal conclusions this weekend, as Barr suggested might happen in his letter.  The expectation is that lawmakers will receive the principal conclusions, in writing, from Barr this weekend, according to a Justice Department official. That distillation from Barr will be made public, says the Justice official. – @LauraAJarrett reports https://t.co/lyjO5sefeK — Manu Raju (@mkraju) March 22, 2019 *** Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s...

Your Volvo Will Soon Call The Cops On You If It Thinks You’ve Been Drinking

Call it a mix between an auto pilot and big brother. Volvo has always been synonymous with safety in the automobile world. Now, the Swedish automaker is taking drastic steps to push the borders between “safety” and “big brother” with proactive safety systems in its vehicles. These systems will soon take control of your car if the notice what they “judge” to be an impaired or distracted driver.  To achieve this control over incapacitated drivers, Volvo soon equip its cars with cameras to monitor and evaluate the responsiveness of drivers, in what the automaker is positioning as a hope to combat against drunk and distracted drivers. If a driver is deemed impaired, the vehicle’s autonomous safety systems will intervene on various levels and also “call the authorities”, according to Motor 1 .  Henrik Green, senior vice president for research and development at Volvo said: “When it comes to safety, our aim is to avoid accidents altogether rather than limit the impact when an accident is imminent and unavoidable. In this case, cameras will monitor for behaviour that may lead to serious injury or death.” The company hasn’t released specific details on how the cameras will work yet. The vehicle will also “monitor steering input and recognize excessive weaving or wandering.” If the vehicle senses a distracted or impaired driver, it could limit the car’s speed and even bring the car to a...

Why Italy’s Decision To Join ‘One Belt, One Road’ Makes Economic Sense

Having brushed aside complaints from Brussels and the US, who fear the already heavily indebted and economically faltering NATO member might be walking into another “debt trap”, Italian President Sergio Mattarella welcomed Chinese leader Xi Jinping to Rome on Friday. And after posing for photos, Mattarella and Xi set the table for the expected signing of a Memorandum of Understanding that will make Italy the first EU member and G7 nation to sign on to Beijing’s controversial One Belt, One Road initiative (BRI), the AP reports. Of course, the populist Italian government, already on thin ice with the globalist powers after defying Brussels and its fiscal rules by blowing out its budget deficit, didn’t exactly smooth over European anxieties by insisting that the partnership with platitudes like insisting that the economic partnership be a “two way street”.  Xi meets Mattarella But Rome has little incentive to cater to Brussels on this. And Beijing, too, has everything to gain. By the end of his two-day diplomatic visit to Italy, Xi will have achieved a major geopolitical victory – a key vote of confidence in one of his signature initiatives – at a time when his government is struggling with slowing economic growth and a destabilizing trade war. While Xi and Italy’s leaders are expected to sign the memorandum on Friday, the deal is happening against a backdrop of an increasingly...

Crimea’s Reunification With Russia – A Landmark Event

Via The Strategic Culture Foundation, This week the people of Crimea celebrated the fifth anniversary of joining the Russian Federation. People across Russia shared their joy. Centuries of common culture and history made the reunification more like a homecoming. Crimea’s important role in defeating Nazi Germany’s genocidal assault on Mother Russia eight decades ago gives it a cherished place in Russia’s modern history. Russian President Vladimir Putin and several dignitaries were in attendance of the ceremonies held on the Black Sea peninsula. Two power stations were opened underlining the energy independence of Crimea and its future integral development with Russia. Earlier this year saw the opening of a 19-kilometer road and rail bridge – the longest in Europe – across the Kerch Strait from Russia’s mainland to Crimea at a cost of nearly $4 billion. While Russian people celebrated the landmark event this week, there was a strange absence of news on the topic in Western media outlets. There was not even much air given to pejorative Western claims against Russia for “annexing” Crimea. Yet such claims have animated official Western concerns over the past five years. Perhaps negative Western media coverage this week would have appeared bizarre and untenable – given that most of the Crimean population were rejoicing the anniversary. Better to just ignore it then, for the Western media that is. The United States and European...

Google Influenced Midterm Elections, May Have Cost Republicans Seats: Study

New research reveals that Google built biases into its search results that influenced the 2018 midterm elections – possibly costing Republicans three congressional districts.  First things first – the study was conducted by Dr. Robert Epstein – a San Diego-based Harvard Ph.D. who founded the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. He’s also a Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT), a UCSD visiting scholar, and served as editor-in-chief of Psychology Today.  He also supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 (just like Google!). Down to the findings:  Epstein and AIBRT analyzed Google searches linked to three highly competitive southern California congressional races in which Democrats won, and found that Google’s “clear democrat bias” may have flipped the seats away from Republican candidates. According to the study, at least 35,455 undecided voters within the three California districts may have been persuaded to vote Democrat due to the biased Google search results.  Epstein says that in the days leading up to the 2018 midterms, he was able to preserve “more than 47,000 election-related searches on Google, Bing, and Yahoo, along with the nearly 400,000 web pages to which the search results linked.” Analysis of this data showed a clear pro-Democrat bias in election-related Google search results as compared to competing search engines. Users performing Google searches related to the three congressional races the study focused on were significantly more likely to see pro-Democrat stories and links...
