Dick Morris: Criminal Chinese Company Had Strong Links to ClintonsFormer President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary Clinton, left, talk during the funeral service for Aretha Franklin at Greater Grace Temple, Aug. 31, 2018, in Detroit. (Paul Sancya / AP Photo) By Dick Morris December 10, 2018 at 3:26pm When the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada on Dec. 1 through an extradition warrant from the U.S., American media described, in detail, how the company had conspired to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran. Huawei has long been involved in helping terrorist states and seeking to thwart U.S. sanctions. Meng is the daughter of Huawei’s founder, Ren Zhengfei. As details of Huawei’s complicity with Iran emerge, it is time to look back on the Clinton family and its close relationship with Huawei. When their connection was first exposed more than a decade ago, it just seemed like another shady Clinton deal. But now, it becomes clear that Huawei has been central to the Iranian efforts to evade first U.N. and then U.S. sanctions.
The Clintons were, indeed, conspiring with the enemy. Huawei has long been a bad actor seeking to undermine U.S. foreign policy. But what is new is that the Trump administration won’t stand for it.
By contrast, the company has had a deep and long-term relationship with the Clinton family. Their ties began when Terry McAuliffe, the Clintons’ top fundraiser and future governor of Virginia, bought a Chinese car company — Green Tech Automotive — and moved it to the U.S. in the hopes that it would produce electric cars.
McAuliffe got Huawei to invest in Green Tech through a financing firm called Gulf Coast Funds Management, headed by Hillary’s brother Tony Rodham. Gulf Coast, boasting the Rodham name, agreed to help Huawei get visas for its top executives under the EB-5 program that awards visas to those who invest at least $500,000 in the U.S. to create jobs. The feds had already turned Huawei down because of its links to the Chinese military.
Huawei’s misdeeds are plentiful.
It helped Saddam Hussein install fiber optic cable in violation of U.S. sanctions.
It helped the Taliban by installing a phone system in Kabul, Afghanistan.
It stole proprietary material from U.S. high tech company Cisco Systems. This material ended up in Chinese hands.
In 2013, Huawei tried to sell telecom equipment made by Hewlett Packard to Iran, in defiance of sanctions and, until a few weeks ago, the parent company of Hyawei’s Iranian business partner was partly owned by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is playing the key role in Iran’s nuclear program.
According to South China News, the U.S. action against Huawei “will severely damage, even cripple, the Chinese company. Of Huawei’s 92 core suppliers, 33 are U.S. corporations, including chip makers Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, Marvell and Micron. If Washington now prohibits these companies from selling to Huawei, the Chinese telecoms giant will struggle to survive.” And, if the full role of the Clintons in their liaison with Huawei comes out, so will Bill and Hillary.

All Hell Broke Loose When The Smoking Gun About Obama’s Deep State Finally This is the day Barack Obama and his Deep State lieutenants feared the most. They hoped the truth about their criminal conspiracy against Donald Trump would stay under wraps. But now all hell is breaking loose across Washington because someone just turned up the smoking gun Obama and his crew thought they had buried forever. Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee know they are up against the clock. The new Democrat majority takes over in a matter of weeks. And that means the end of the investigation into the crimes committed by Barack Obama, James Comey, and the rest of the Deep State during the 2016 election. But the Republicans on the committee aren’t just shrugging their shoulders and admitting defeat. They are continuing to press President Trump to declassify documents that would expose the seedy underbelly of the Obama administration. And The Hill’s John Solomon exclusively reports that a bombshell email chain is at the heart of this fight. The Hill’s Solomon reports: THE EMAIL EXCHANGES INCLUDED THEN-FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY, KEY FBI INVESTIGATORS IN THE RUSSIA PROBE AND LAWYERS IN THE DOJ’S NATIONAL SECURITY DIVISION, AND THEY OCCURRED IN EARLY TO MID-OCTOBER, BEFORE THE FBI SUCCESSFULLY SECURED A FISA WARRANT TO SPY ON TRUMP CAMPAIGN ADVISER CARTER PAGE. THE EMAIL EXCHANGES SHOW THE FBI WAS AWARE — BEFORE IT SECURED THE NOW-INFAMOUS WARRANT — THAT THERE WERE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY CONCERNS ABOUT THE RELIABILITY OF THE MAIN EVIDENCE USED TO SUPPORT IT: THE CHRISTOPHER STEELE DOSSIER. THE EXCHANGES ALSO INDICATE FBI OFFICIALS WERE AWARE THAT STEELE, THE FORMER MI6 BRITISH INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVE THEN WORKING AS A CONFIDENTIAL HUMAN SOURCE FOR THE BUREAU, HAD CONTACTS WITH NEWS MEDIA REPORTERS BEFORE THE FISA WARRANT WAS SECURED.
These emails are dynamite. They prove Comey and other top Obama officials violated FBI protocol when they used the Steele dossier as the centerpiece for a FISA warrant application against former Trump campaign aide, Carter Page. FBI guidelines say only verified information can be used as evidence in a FISA warrant application. Comey and his henchmen knew the Steele dossier was fake news, but their blind hatred of Donald Trump caused them to cast rules and regulations aside in order to take him down by any means necessary. In addition, Solomon also reported that the emails indicate Comey and other top officials knew Christopher Steele had leaked to the media. The FBI fired Steele as a confidential human source on November 1st for his contacts with the media. In the warrant application against Carter Page, the FBI cited a September 16th Yahoo news article as their corroborating evidence. It is now known that Steele was the source for that article—therefore a news article sourced back to Steele was used as proof that the dossier – also put together by Steele – was deemed as trustworthy evidence. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are sure to press Comey about these emails when he testifies on Friday. Obama, Comey, and the rest of the Deep State thought the Democrats taking back the House secured them from ever being held accountable for their lawless and un-American conduct during the 2016 election. However, with the Republicans refusing to stop digging until they found the smoking gun proves those hopes were wildly misplaced. We will keep you up to date on any new details on this ongoing story. ___________________________
The Attack Sparks says he was wearing a MAGA hat as he carried a political sign in downtown Tucson, urging people to vote Republican in the midterms. Then someone grabbed his head from behind, pulling on his hair and crushing his ankle. Mr. Sparks attempted to fight off the assailant, with both of them falling to the ground. During the struggle, Sparks’ hat came off, but he did manage to reach out and grab the hat back during the assault. While all this was going on, Sparks said the man was yelling out words like, “Hitler” and “Nazi.” Witnesses saw the attack and helped hold the attacker off Sparks until the authorities arrived. Police eventually arrived and the attacker was arrested for assault. Amazing Attitude One would think Sparks would be extremely bitter after the attack, but that was not the case. Quite the contrary, actually. As he recovers from surgery on his broken ankle, Sparks has chosen to focus on the people that helped get the attacker off him until authorities arrived. “There were people who pulled him off, paramedics who stayed with me, there is a police officer that protected me,” he said. “I was attacked with vengeance by an evil man,” Sparks said. Describing the attack, Sparks said, “The assailant jumped onto my ankle from behind. And so, not knowing my ankle was broken into four pieces, I turned around to grab and take the hat back.” “But you know what I learned? You know what God taught me through the whole thing? How wonderful Tucson is,” he added. Something else he learned about was in how the media covers attacks on Trump supporters. Sparks was quick to note that had he held up a sign with a different ideology and had been attacked, this story would have been covered nationally rather than just the local news.
Sadly, he is absolutely correct. The media all but embraces attacks against Trump supporters, burying them at the bottom of headlines to keep pushing their own narrative about the President and those that support him. ___________________________

Definition of a Tea bagger .. To tea bag is a slang term for the sexual act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth of a willing sexual partner for pleasure or onto the face or head of another person. The name of the practice, when it is done in a repeated in-and-out motion, is derived from its passing resemblance to the dipping of a tea bag into a cup of hot water as a method of brewingtea. As a form of non-penetrative sex, it can be done for its own enjoyment or as foreplay. _________________________
INTERNATIONAL MICAIAH BILGER DEC 3, 2018 | 11:02AM DUBLIN, IRELAND
Dozens of Irish doctors walked out of an emergency meeting about abortion Sunday after they said their concerns about conscience protections are being ignored. About 300 doctors attended the meeting by the Irish College of General Practitioners EGM in Dublin to discuss the government’s plans to legalize abortions starting Jan. 1, 2019, NewsTalk reports. Dozens walked out after complaining that leaders have been ramming through the pro-abortion legislation without consulting the medical community or giving it ample time to prepare. Many doctors also fear being forced to help abort unborn babies against their consciences. Dr. Andrew O’Regan, speaking for the GPs who walked out, said the meeting Sunday did nothing to address their concerns, the Irish Independent reports. “The very false impression has been created [by] the Minister for Health that general practice is a suitable setting for abortion provision,” O’Regan said. “There are a whole spectrum of opinions within our grouping that left this meeting. People who felt differently about the abortion referendum but people that are united in that we have not been listened to and that we have not been genuinely engaged with in a respectful, democratic way.” Dr. Illona Duffy, an OB-GYN, said the Irish health system is not ready to begin providing abortions on Jan. 1, the date when the government wants every maternity hospital to start aborting unborn babies. Duffy told Breaking News Ireland that government leaders have not given them many details or involved them in plans to legalize abortion.
Here’s more from the report: Dr Duffy said: “Ireland is one of the only countries where abortion services will be through GPs, it is usually through clinics. In most countries patients self-refer to clinics.” There is a concern that GPs are already under pressure and this is an attempt to provide the service “on the cheap”. She said: “GPs will be left dealing with this complicated process. This is being done without consultation and without taking our concerns into consideration.” More than 640 general practitioners also signed a petition calling the pro-abortion legislation a “serious crisis,” according to the Connacht Tribune. Fiona McHugh of Nurses and Midwives 4 Life told reporters that her group, which represents hundreds of medical workers, also has major concerns about the legislation. She said pro-abortion Health Minister Simon Harris has kept them “utterly in the dark,” though they repeatedly have asked to meet with him. “We’ve had no meetings with Minister Harris at all …” McHugh said. “This service is to be rolled out in January and any service that is new to healthcare, there would be talk about how this is going to happen, you’d have to work through a process. “None of this has happened, we’re completely and utterly in the dark,” she said. Last week, the Dáil debated the pro-abortion bill, which would legalize abortion for any reason up to 12 weeks of pregnancy and up to six months in a wide variety of circumstances. It would force taxpayers to pay for abortions and force Catholic hospitals to provide them. The bill also strictly limits conscience protections for medical professionals. TDs rejected a series of amendments that would have provided at least some protections for unborn babies and taxpayers. Hundreds of Irish doctors, nurses and midwives have been urging the health minister to meet with them to address a severe lack of conscience protections in the law. Without added protections, medical workers could be forced to help abort unborn babies or lose their jobs. The bill would force Catholic hospitals and pregnancy centers to promote or provide abortions against their consciences as well. In September, Harris confirmed that Catholic hospitals will be forced to abort unborn babies, saying, “… conscientious objection is for individuals, not institutions.” An October poll by Amárach found that 60 percent of Irish residents oppose taxpayer-funded abortions. In addition, a full 80 percent say health care workers should not be forced to carry out abortions against their conscience. ___________________________
The overwhelming majority of illegal drugs in the United States already come from Mexico and Mexican traffickers are the greatest criminal threat to the nation, but things are about to get worse when Mexico’s new leftwing president takes over.
His name is Andrés Manuel López Obrador (known popularly as AMLO), he opposes hardline anti-drug policies and believes in amnesty for drug war criminals. A State Department document obtained by Judicial Watch warns that Obrador, who takes over on December 1, will seek to decriminalize marijuana and poppy cultivation early in his term.
He will also end Mexican military intervention in the drug war and pardon some drug offenders, according to the document which was issued recently by the agency’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security and is titled “Mexico’s Drug War & AMLO” and subtitled “Crime; Drug Trafficking; Narco-Terrorism.”
Narco-violence and cartel-associated crime is already one of most dangerous threats against U.S. private-sector interests in Mexico, according to the State Department, and Obrador’s new policies will only worsen the crisis. “The promised amnesty deal with organized criminal groups and the pledge to investigate and prosecute corrupt politicians, many of whom are in business with the cartels, prompts concern about increased impunity for violent offenders,” the new memo states.
It identifies “hot spots” for Mexican Criminal and Narco-Violence and reveals that the drug war and cartel infighting has caused severe, nationwide security repercussions. Five Mexican states (Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas) have such high levels of violence that the U.S. government warns against travel.
Common crimes include homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery. “In these states, gang activity, including gun battles, is widespread,” the State Department writes. “Criminal organizations operate freely and sometimes with impunity. Local law enforcement has limited capability to respond to violence in many parts of these states, as criminal organizations have laid territorial claim to significant portions of the region.”
In 2017 the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) handled 116 kidnappings in Mexico, 81 for ransoms, and during the 2018 general elections there were 774 attacks against politicians. More than 150 politicians were killed in the attacks, the State Department reveals, and 371 non-elected officials. On election day alone, 138 assaults were reported in Mexico and seven politicians were murdered, compared to nine during the entire 2012 election season.
Clearly, our neighbor to the south is a perpetually unstable, crime-infested cesspool. Intra-cartel violence remains the most prevalent type of crime much like an outlaw society taken over by thugs. “Although Mexico employs strict gun-control laws, criminals are often armed with guns, which has resulted in the increase of homicide incidents in Mexico,” according to the State Department memo. “While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted, criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Shooting incidents injuring or killing bystanders have occurred. In some states, members of these groups frequently maintain roadblocks and may use violence towards travelers.”
It’s difficult to imagine that the Mexican crisis will worsen in a few weeks. For years a variety of government audits have documented that the overwhelming majority of illegal drugs in the U.S. come from Mexico and Mexican traffickers remain the greatest criminal threat to the country. A recent one that comes to mind is the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) 2015 National Drug Threat Assessment proclaiming that Mexican cartels are in a class of their own, that “no other group can challenge them in the near term.”
The government classifies them as Transitional Criminal Organizations (TCOs) and they smuggle in enormous quantities of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. We’re talking about sophisticated operations that have been smuggling huge amounts of illicit drugs into the U.S. for some time. It doesn’t end there. The DEA has confirmed that major Mexican cartels are actually operating in the United States. They include the Beltran-Leyva Organization (BLO), New Generation Jalisco Cartel (Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generación or CJNG) the Los Cuinis, Gulf Cartel (Cartel del Golfo or CDG), Juarez Cartel, Michoacán Family (La Familia Michoacána or LFM), Knights Templar (Los Caballeros Templarios or LCT), Los Zetas, and the renowned Sinaloa Cartel.
Mexican drug cartels have long benefitted from our susceptible southern border and the situation is more serious than ever because traffickers have joined forces with Middle Eastern terrorists to enter the U.S. Years ago Judicial Watch broke a story detailing how smugglers (“coyotes”) working for the Juárez Cartel help move ISIS terrorists through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico.
To the east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” also smuggle ISIS terrorists through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. Judicial Watch’s high-level government sources say these specific areas were targeted for exploitation by ISIS because of their understaffed municipal and county police forces and the relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling that was already ongoing. __________________________
Report: Trump legal team again pushes for prosecution of former FBI Director James Comey DECEMBER 3, 2018 BY BEN MARQUIS It has become obvious over the last two years that former FBI Director James Comey had been less than truthful in his dealings with Congress, his superiors in the Trump and Obama administrations, and the American people on a number of issues — and there are members of President Donald Trump’s team that want Comey to be held accountable for his misleading and untruthful ways. In fact, a report from the Washington Times alleges that Trump’s legal team even compiled evidence of Comey’s dishonesty and attempted to persuade special counsel Robert Mueller and the Justice Department of Comey’s need to be fully investigated and prosecuted for his lies. The Times reported that the efforts toward holding Comey accountable have come to light following the recent announcement that Mueller had derived another guilty plea out of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, this time for lying to Congress about the details of a potential business deal for a Trump hotel in Moscow, a deal that never fully materialized. Investigate Comey for his documented liesFormer Trump attorney John Dowd told the Times: “The Cohen plea of lying to Congress by the special counsel raises the very serious question as to why the special counsel has refused to investigate and prosecute the false statements and testimony of James Comey, the main accuser of the president, before the Senate Judiciary and Intel committees.” Dowd revealed that Trump’s legal team had filed complaints with both Mueller and the DOJ in 2017 that focused on dishonest remarks Comey had made in May 2017. (He denied under oath before Congress any involvement in FBI leaks to the media about Trump and his associates, a statement he later walked back.) Dowd recalled that Mueller had informed him that the special counsel team would not be looking at Comey’s dishonesty, so Dowd had pressed the matter with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a letter formally requesting a grand jury investigation into Comey. Rosenstein never issued a clear response on the matter, and merely declined to confirm or deny any sort of investigation. Dowd, referencing Comey’s personal memos about Trump that were leaked to the media through a friend, wrote in that letter to Rosenstein: “It is particularly troubling that it was Mr. Comey’s plainly deliberate, unlawful conduct and false congressional testimony which precipitated your appointment of Special Counsel Mueller. Indeed, Mr. Comey publicly bragged about it.” Others have lied as wellConsidering that Cohen has been forced to cop a plea for lying to Congress, it stands to reason that other individuals who are known to have lied to Congress should also be held accountable by the DOJ. There are four individuals who specifically and immediately come to mind as an example of this double standard, including former National Security Agency chief James Clapper. Clapper lied under oath to the Senate in 2013 when he denied that the NSA collected information on American citizens. Likewise, sleazy anti-Trump attorney Michael Avenatti submitted false information to the Senate Judiciary Committee with regard to sexual misconduct allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, allegations that were later debunked and retracted. Furthermore, former U.K. intelligence agent Christopher Steele provided false information to the FBI and Congress, by virtue of the still unproven and partially debunked “dossier” he compiled of Russian misinformation about then-candidate Trump. Similarly, Glenn Simpson — head of the Fusion GPS opposition research firm that hired Steele and commissioned his dossier — had a hand in presenting false information to the government and may have lied himself during testimony to a Senate committee.
There is little doubt that James Comey has been less than truthful with Congress, his former superiors, and the American people — and he should be held to account for his dishonesty. It’s only fair. __________________________
President Trump’s challenges are not really his economic policies and foreign affairs agendas. For the most part, they are supported by the American people and are resulting in prosperity at home and security abroad. The economy continues to deliver near-record-low unemployment, wage gains, strong growth and unmatched energy production. No nation can remain sovereign and secure with insecure borders. There are few ways to stop massive illegal immigration other than building a wall, insisting on employer sanctions and recalibrating legal immigration to be measured, diverse and meritocratic. For all the hysteria over Trump’s foreign policy, many observers quietly concede that the U.S. is far tougher on Vladimir Putin and Russia now than Obama was in 2016: stronger sanctions, more help to the Ukrainians and greater NATO expenditures. America had reached a point of no return with China. It either had to renegotiate its enormous trade imbalances and confront regional Chinese aggressions or simply acquiesce to China’s agenda of predetermined global superiority. Yet there were few levers other than temporary trade tariffs to force China to trade equitably and to follow global commercial norms. The status quo that Trump inherited with North Korean nuclear-tipped intercontinental missiles was an unsustainable proposition. So was an Iran deal that would have guaranteed eventual Iranian nuclear capability. Yet Trump cannot consistently reach 50 percent approval in the polls. And, like most presidents, he experienced a rebuke in the House during his first midterm elections. So, what might Trump do to translate his policy successes into 51 percent majority support? He needs to pick up more minority voter support, perhaps winning about 20 percent of the African-American vote and 40 percent of the Hispanic vote. That is a difficult proposition for any Republican in general, and in particular Trump, who is loathed by Democratic and identity-politics activists. Yet Trump’s economic policies have achieved record-low minority unemployment. His immigration policies will eventually curb illegal immigration and give clout to entry-level workers, who will have less competition from imported low-wage labor. Trump should go into minority communities and hold frank discussions with local leaders, many of whom oppose him politically, about policies geared toward economically empowering inner-city youth. Trump’s message should be that his economic agenda is aimed at ensuring that minority workers regain some clout over employers. In a growing economy short of labor, those who were once bypassed and ignored now for the first time in decades have the ability to choose from among multiple job options and enjoy rising wages. Trump also must pick up 5 percent to 10 percent more of suburban centrists and Republican voters, many of whom privately support the Trump agenda but publicly recoil at Trump’s sometimes blunt (though usually accurate) assessments of political opponents, celebrities and foreign nations. The obvious complaint among these swing voters is not so much with Trump’s substance as with his style — which nonetheless appeals to millions in the Trump base who are sick and tired of political hedging and politically correct sentimentalism. Referring to opportunist Stormy Daniels as “horse face” or to often-erratic Rep. Adam Schiff as “Little Adam Schitt” is unnecessary to secure a base already appreciative of the fact that Trump has done what he said he would do while on the campaign. His gratuitous slurs of enemies turn off voters who otherwise appreciate the security, prosperity and confidence that Trump has returned to America. In this regard, Trump is at his best when he is funny and self-deprecating — attributes that play especially well in suburbia. During the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation circus, an all-too-human Trump joked, “I never had a glass of alcohol. I never had alcohol, for whatever reason. Can you imagine if I had? What a mess I would be. I would be the world’s worst.” When Trump campaigns and holds rallies, he is the rare politician who sincerely uses a plural possessive pronoun of endearment to talk of Americans as “our farmers,” “our soldiers,” “our miners” and “our workers.” His speeches about reviving the deindustrialized Midwest show more empathy than the usual boilerplate from free-trade libertarians or social-welfare liberals. Trump does not have to win over all minority voters and suburbanites. He just needs to recalibrate his messaging and re-emphasize his solid achievements, reminding those he has benefited why and how he has helped them — and why he is not the ogre so often stereotyped in the media. Otherwise, Trump will end up getting results without getting political credit for it. ___________________________
California Gov. Jerry Brown
JERRY BROWN QUIETLY ADMITS TRUMP WAS RIGHT California guv eases state's logging rules in wake of wildfires Published: 7 hours ago 306 California Gov. Jerry Brown After brushing off President Trump’s charge that poor forest management is partly to blame for California’s recent devastating wildfires, Gov. Jerry Brown is urging state lawmakers to ease restrictions on logging that were enacted under pressure from environmental groups. Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state’s logging rules in nearly half a century, the Santa Cruz Sentinel reported, as noted by the Daily Wire. In an effort to thin more forests, the proposal would allow private landowners with 300 acres or less to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit. Environmentalists, however, want to make California’s logging rules even more restrictive, the Daily Wire said. But the recent deadly fires in both Northern and Southern California have prompted lawmakers to act. Brown’s proposal would allow landowners to cut trees up to 36 inches in diameter — up from the current 26 inches — without a permit if their purpose is to reduce fire risk. They also would be be allowed to build roads of up to 600 feet long without a permit. Landowners currently are allowed only to clear dead and decaying wood and undergrowth. Two weeks ago, the Daily Wire reported, Trump threatened to withhold federal money if California didn’t improve its forest management. “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor,” he tweeted.
“Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!” Brown’s office responded to the president, calling his opinion “inane” and “uninformed.” “Our focus is on the Californians impacted by these fires and the first responders and firefighters working around the clock to save lives and property — not on the president’s inane, uninformed tweets.” And Brown blamed global warming for the increase in fires, the Daily Wire pointed out.
