    Party Vowing to Curb Immigration Favored to Win Quebec Election

    With less than three weeks to go before the Oct. 1 election, an upstart alliance that’s pledging to reduce immigration is favored to oust the Liberal Party that’s governed the French-speaking Canadian province for all but two of the past 15 years.

    Coalition Avenir Quebec, the eight-year-old party led by former airline executive and education minister Francois Legault, is leading in the polls — though recent surveys show it may lack the support required to win a majority.

    Canadians who work in the marijuana industry — and those who invest in the booming pot sector — risk a lifetime ban on travel to the U.S., according to a senior official overseeing U.S border operations.

    As Canada prepares to become the world’s only major industrialized nation to legalize retail marijuana sales starting Oct. 17, the Canadian cannabis sector is projected to generate billions of dollars of revenue in coming years and Canadians have flocked to take jobs and buy stocks in the burgeoning industry. But the move has potential to disrupt border crossings between the U.S. and Canada for travelers who run afoul of American drug laws, even if their activities are legal in Canada.

    Ban ICE!

    Open borders now!

    A Mexican national who was previously accused of raping his teenage daughter was caught trying to illegally enter the U.S. at the Texas border on Tuesday, WKRN-TV reported.

    Border agents found Rusbel Zamorano-Calderon, 39, near the Ysleta Port of Entry, about 14 miles south of El Paso. The agents said they caught up with Zamorano-Calderon, who was among a group of people, according to a press release.

    After taking him into custody, agents discovered Zamorano-Calderon was previously deported and had an outstanding warrant for three counts of raping his 15-year-old daughter in Polk County, Tennessee.

    Dear me. Delta can’t take a point of critique without flying to the tired old rhetoric about female hysteria. You really are pathetic in your crustiness, Delta. A woman making sensible points about the Wentworth by election which you are not prepared to accept as valid points must of necessity be suffering from the old medieval ‘wandering womb’. How about you address my points rather than my uterus, Delta?

    And for shame, Calli. One vote counts as one. Except in a gerrymander, of course. I don’t think Wentworth is that. Try South Australia. 🙂

    This by election could bring down the government. It is foolish to profess disinterest in that just to both have a nark of sorts at me for living there and pointing out some current political realities.

    Good morning, Rafe. Good to see you so bright, early and cheery. It is dinner time here, 8.30pm. My computer has collapsed and I am thus resorting to my phone which is painfully tedious. Hairy has found an aperatif here in Malta we have nicknamed liquid marzipan and as a marzipan addict I am getting stuck into it before we dine late, as you do here. Nikki Gemmel the ‘reformed alcoholic’ would disapprove but truth to tell I am sick of females doing disapprobation on our every mood and enjoyment. Anything I say or do I am fully responsible for and will defend it with vigorous intellect. Just warnin’ y’all. 🙂

    President Trump is Correct New York Times”Fake News” – decision was made by Obama Administration

    Scroll down — keep scrolling — and you eventually get to this: “A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.”

    MORE ON THE EARTHSHAKING MATTER OF NIKKI HALEY’S CURTAINS: So the decision to buy was made in 2016, but the “action date” on the contracts — here and here — seems to be late March/early April 2017. Given the speed at which government operates, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but just fyi. (Links via Eugene Volokh, and the UCLA law library reference department.)

    UPDATE: Meanwhile, here’s the NYT correction:

    The new, accurate headline: State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Residence of U.N. Envoy. But the old, inaccurate — by which I mean flagrantly and deliberately dishonest — headline has circled the social-media globe three times, which was, I believe, the intent all along.

    65 women say Kavanaugh was a gentleman in high school

    Sixty-five women who knew Brett Kavanaugh in high school have signed a letter to Sens. Grassley and Feinstein. They state that throughout the time they have known Kavanaugh, he has “behaved honorably and treated women with respect.” This is consistent with testimonials from Judge Kavanaugh’s female law clerks (all of them whose employment didn’t preclude them from signing) and with what I have heard from people who know Kavanaugh personally.

    How many of us could receive this sort of endorsement from women we knew in high school? I might be able to round up a few dozen to say I was a jerk, but never sexually harassed them.

    Here is the text of the letter:

    Have changed to FireFox Browser and DuckDuckGo as Search Engine – Google go away

    The question is what to do about the left-wing tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Start conservative companies and platforms to compete with them? Break them up under the Sherman Act? Turn them into regulated public utilities, with public employee-level salaries and no stock options? Those are all possibilities. After watching the video, you no doubt will be ready to take action.

    UPDATE: Google put out a statement in response to the uproar over this video:

    At a regularly scheduled all hands meeting, some Google employees and executives expressed their own personal views in the aftermath of a long and divisive election season. For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings. Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products. To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint.

    That’s the usual leftist line: Sure, we are all liberals here, but trust us! It doesn’t influence how we do our work. The problem is that the video includes extensive discussion of how “we” can prevent future anomalies like Trump’s election and Brexit.

    A reader and frequent correspondent offers a pungent take on Google’s election angst:

    Gag me with a spoon.

    I worked for very large corporations most of my life. Of course, there is a strong element of conformity — but with respect to achieving success of the business, nothing else! I also had experience in a tech start-up post early stage. Very smart high level people. And NOTHING remotely like the fatuous, risible self importance displayed by these punchable a**holes. They give conformity, groupthink and limousine liberal goo-goo right-think a bad name.

    But all you need to know is this, openly proclaimed: they have 10,000 immigrant employees! A world of tech-coolies!

    Crush them.

    Old Ozzie, time here has been limited. We did spend half an hour examining and reflecting on the monument to all allied airmen who died without graves. Hundreds upon hundreds of names by year of death, and rank and country. Also saw George VI’s message giving Malta the George Cross for resistance during the African and other campaigns up to 1942 on a plaque in the big public square in Valletta. Lybia is very close to here, says Hairy waving an arm seaward. Quite a few African Muzzies in town, and just had dinner in a smart restaurant where an annoying Muslim female duo (one an identikit model of our very own Yasmin) primped endlessly for their own selfies, rather ruining our view across St. Julian from this cutesy restaurant near our hotel where we are enjoying the nightlife. Today’s Neolithic temples were seriously dramatic, as was yesterday’s one on the island of Gozo. These temples and others are the ‘must sees’ in Malta but there are other attractions of heritage and valor as well. Valetta harbour and its fortresses are very impressive and the holiday coastal route to St Julian’s is scenically built up and busy against the Mediterranean blue, which always has its deep and intense touch of distilled magic. An ancient place, old before the Phoenicians ever sailed, taken by Islam from the 7th to 9th centuries until rescued by the Knights Hospitalier of St, John. The language is a curious mix with its own peculiar set of pronunciation markings. Like Basque, it has many X’s and a scattering of Z’s. A polyglot tongue.

    Zulu, glad travel is providing rewards and laughs for you as is its won’t. Enjoy.

    Privacy-Focused ‘Brave’ Browser Files Complaint Against Google Ad Data Harvesting

    If the court rules in Brave’s favor, companies like Google could face immense penalties — as much as four percent of their bottom line. Within a $273 billion dollar industry enjoying explosive growth on the backs of unwitting consumers, there is a lot of money potentially on the table.

    It’ll be interesting to see the result of this fight. Normally the EU is antipathic towards giant American companies, but they are full-on progressive greens. This one pits the ginormous lefty Googs against plucky little libertarian Braves.

    Calli, I doubt Wentworth will tip into Green although it has a strong component. Libs might hang on and there will be a rise in smaller Parties’ support and a rise in votes for independents, some preferencing Libs. IMHO Aust Cons could do well if they fielded a candidate and a message might go to Libs from people who would like still to put in a protest vote re the left drift which Morrison is doing little to correct. Libs are making a mistake not putting up a local though. This electorate is quite tribal about its locality. Like The Shire in that regard. That’s the wild card.

    Hi Lizzie, indeed what Malta and its people endured from the Italians and the Germans during WWII was absolutely appalling, their courage, endurance and determination is the stuff of legend. If ever there were reparations to be paid it should have been to the Maltese for the horror of a war prosecuted by an implacable enemy prepared to wipe out a nation’s entire population.

    OK, Serena Williams misbehaved and paid the price. I feel the criticism has been excessive. I can’t help but wonder if the disproportionate response to her outburst is a reaction to those who have played the race card with Mark Knight’s excellent cartoon. We live in an age when people are too often accused of racism when they shouldn’t be. When this happens, don’t be surprised that good citizens strike back.

    Morning JC

    As they say in the classics, “Once more into the breach dear friends, pile high the leftist dead”. Or something like that!

    Which brings me to an important point that might have been overlooked last night. The LDP policy includes an entry fee paid by the migrant and stopping all social welfare for migrants.

    This (assuming that the LDP, ACP and the Coalition could agree on the legislation) leaves two avenues of attack open to the fascist left and the MSM (birm). The first is how mean it would be to ask for a fee from some poor Third Worlder who only wants to enrich Australia culturally. The second would be to find, however exceptional it might be, some sad case living in poverty, perhaps because a mean capitalist (sorry for the leftist tautology) didn’t provide the promised job, or unfairly dismissed the migrant. This would be used to. demand extension of taxpayer funded services to all immigrants.

    To this would be added the bleats of the IOM/UN about the need to treat migrants “humanely” by providing unlimited taxpayer financial support regardless of need. Do you really think that the UNiParty would not fold like a cheap suit?

    So we need an approach that negates these leftist talking points.

    My suggestion of sponsorship does that. Perhaps I did not make it clear enough in my initial post, but all forms of taxpayer assistance to migrants would also be abolished. The sponsor would be responsible for any costs, ameliorated by any income earned by tbe migrant.

    This would render void the fascist left talking point that “Australia is a wealthy country and Australians are generous people. We should take X thousand more refugees/Third World unemployable peasants”. The response would be “We agree that Australians are generous people. We are giving them the opportunity to demonstrate their generosity on a personal or collective level. At tbe same time, we do not believe that significant costs should be imposed on Australian taxpayers who see few benefits from large scale unskilled migration. Generosity should not be forced, or it is not generosity”. Put the acid on tbe leftists to put up (their own money) or shut up.

    We need to counter fascist left talking points before, not after, they are made. In this, as in most things, the fascist leftists are the real enemy.

    Sinistra delenda est.

  43. Do you think Wentworth will go …

    Studying the form guide.
    When Mr. Rabbit was PM the SFL had a large majority.
    Wile E. Trumble effect reduced the majority to, near enough to zip.
    In fact, history shows us that everything Trumble has touched eventually turns to sh1t.

    Conclusion:
    Libs to lose. Put your money on one of the other nags (place bet only).

    Unchained from any ministerial responsibilities, former federal deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop recently declared it “not acceptable” that just 25 per cent of the party’s federal MPs are women. It was far from a call for gender quotas, but it was a clear acknowledgment of a problem that an increasing number in party ranks desperately believe needs to be addressed.

    Sensible people care about policy, not appearances. And Bishop is the ultimate light weight. She has never done anything of significance. Now she is pushing her pointless barrow for the leadership, something she is utterly incapable of doing.

    WSJ – The Dirt and Delay Playbook

    Democrats want to push a Kavanaugh vote past Election Day.

    By The Editorial Board

    A reliable rule of modern politics, especially Supreme Court politics, is to think lower. Really low. That’s our advice as we learn more about the last-minute accusation that Democrats are floating against Brett Kavanaugh. The timeline of this ugly disclosure suggests it’s part of a calculated if desperate strategy to delay a confirmation vote past the November election.

    The New Yorker on Friday offered more details on the accusation from a woman who claims Mr. Kavanaugh had “attempted to force himself on her” at a party when the two were in high school in the early 1980s. Yes, high school. The story was published a day after Senator Dianne Feinstein, ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, announced that she had “information” about Mr. Kavanaugh that she had shared with the FBI.

    Ms. Feinstein purported to take the high road of offering no details and protecting the woman’s privacy. But someone took the low road of providing the New Yorker details of the accusation contained in a letter from the woman to Ms. Feinstein. The unidentified woman alleges that Mr. Kavanaugh “held her down,” covered her mouth with his hand, and with a male classmate turned up the music so she couldn’t be heard. “She was able to free herself,” the New Yorker reported.

    The magazine was given these details with enough time to contact someone close to the woman. The reporters also had time to contact the male classmate who said he had “no recollection” of the incident. For the record, Mr. Kavanaugh “categorically and unequivocally” denies the allegation.

    The timeline here is damning about Democratic motivations. The New Yorker says the woman first approached Democrats in July. Yet Ms. Feinstein didn’t ask about the accusation in her meeting with Judge Kavanaugh, didn’t ask about it at the hearing, and no Democrats asked about it in their 1,278 written follow-up questions after the hearing.

    So why now? As we wrote Friday, the charitable explanation is that Ms. Feinstein didn’t think it worthy enough of investigation but finally bowed under pressure from her colleagues. She’s running for re-election against a left-wing Democrat who is pounding her for not stopping Mr. Kavanaugh and on Friday hit her for a “failure of leadership” for waiting to disclose the allegations.

    This is the explanation implied by the New Yorker reporters, who compare Ms. Feinstein to Joe Biden’s supposed failure to get tough on Clarence Thomas after Anita Hill’s last-minute accusations in 1991. The idea that Mr. Biden was soft is hilarious. Democrats were vicious.

    But if you think lower, waiting to drop the letter is right out of the Anita Hill playbook. Her accusation was also sprung shortly before a confirmation vote and prodded Democrats to hold a second hearing, when Justice Thomas credibly denied her claims.

    The letter gambit looks like an attempt to create a similar #MeToo uproar that would force Republicans to delay the hearing. If nothing else, such a delay might spare Democratic Senators running in Trump states from having to take a difficult confirmation vote. No Democrats have called for a new hearing, but let’s see what Democratic media say this weekend.

    The accuser remained unidentified on Friday, but even if she comes forward the accusation is too distant, too disputed and too late in the day. It also doesn’t fit everything else we know about Mr. Kavanaugh’s behavior across his 53 years. No fewer than 65 women who knew the judge in high school sent a letter to the Senate Friday attesting that “he has always treated women with decency and respect.”

    Republicans can strike a blow against this sleazy, late-hit politics by sticking to their timeline and confirming Judge Kavanaugh so he can take the bench when the Court begins its fall term on October 1.

    WSJ – The Manafort Plea

    The former Trump aide agrees to cooperate. But what does he know?

    By The Editorial Board


    Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday finally squeezed all the resistance out of Paul Manafort. The former Trump campaign chairman agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, but the important question is whether he knows anything about the alleged Donald Trump-Russia collusion tale that made Mr. Manafort a target.

    As with his conviction last month on other charges, Mr. Manafort’s Friday guilty plea concerns his business as a political fixer long before he worked for the Trump campaign. He copped to two conspiracy charges, though prosecutors dropped five others ranging from money laundering to false statements. The deal spares Mr. Manafort a second trial and imposes a 10-year cap on prison time on all of the charges against him. He also agreed to forfeit four homes and other assets and cooperate with the Mueller probe.

    Mr. Manafort had long resisted Mr. Mueller’s full-court legal squeeze, which included a raid on Mr. Manafort’s home, prison time and solitary confinement before trial, and dozens of charges that could have put him behind bars for the rest of his life. The previous verdicts and the prospect of more convictions and mounting legal bills appear to have pushed Mr. Manafort to plead guilty.

    And who knows? Maybe Mr. Manafort will be the Rosetta Stone of the Trump-Russia narrative, even if there’s still no evidence that he is. The longtime Beltway lobbyist has consistently said he has no information to offer on Russia since there was no collusion.

    This is supported by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, which investigated Mr. Manafort and found no evidence of an election conspiracy. On Friday Politico reported that a source close to the Manafort legal team repeated that “the cooperation agreement does not involve the Trump campaign. . . . There was no collusion with Russia.”

    The Manafort plea follows the end of the legal line for another supposed collusion canary: George Papadopoulos. The one-time junior Trump aide was recently sentenced to 14 days in jail for lying to the FBI about some dates. Mr. Mueller’s team had asked for as much as six months of jail time.

    When Mr. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty last year and agreed to cooperate with Mr. Mueller, the press had also portrayed the 31-year-old as the key to the collusion narrative. But in his post-sentencing media appearances, the star witness has offered nothing that is incriminating against his former colleagues. Unless Mr. Mueller is compiling a set of so far unknown facts, Mr. Papadopoulos looks more like a hapless young man who didn’t understand how ruthless prosecutors and the FBI can be when they want to squeeze you.

    Mr. Mueller has convicted several former Trump associates, but the charges have all been for lying to the FBI or corrupt business practices unrelated to the 2016 Trump campaign. None show any connection between the Trump campaign and Russia’s meddling in the presidential campaign or hacking of Democratic emails.

    The good news for the White House is that the Manafort deal removes the prospect for a second trial as a media fixation during the fall election campaign. If Mr. Mueller follows Justice Department guidelines, which he is obliged to do, he will now postpone any prosecutions through Election Day.

    Leaks or other news about his investigation will undermine public confidence in a probe that has already wandered far from its original Russia remit and has now lasted 16 months without a resolution.

    Report: Feinstein forwarded letter about Kavanaugh to the FBI — with the accuser’s name redacted

    Hmmmm. Orrin Hatch called out Feinstein and her Democratic colleagues in a statement about the accusation/smear earlier this afternoon:

    The Senator in the best position to determine the credibility of these accusations made the conscious decision not to take action on them, and the authorities to whom the accusations have been referred have decided not to take action either…

    Every accuser deserves to be heard. But a process of verification is also necessary. In this case, the accusations were made in a private letter, which has been misrepresented in a number of media stories, from an accuser who has declined to go public and has asked for privacy. The letter sent to investigators has had her name redacted, meaning no further investigation could take place. The claims are wholly unverifiable, and come at the tail-end of a process that was already marred by ugly innuendo, dishonesty, and the nastiest form of our politics. The American people deserve much better from the Senate as an institution.

    Strong 4Q = More Hang-Time for This Premium
    Valuation; Reiterate Outperform

    If You Weren’t Convinced Global Market Share was Turning Before…
    F4Q results signal that several years of distribution disruption, bloated
    inventories, lackluster innovation, and market share losses are now clearly
    inflecting. Revenue growth in North America (the key indicator for inflecting
    brand health) accelerated sequentially to +3% YOY from -6% in F3Q. Nike
    raised its FY19 revenue outlook to +HSD (from +MSD/HSD). Importantly,
    F4Q sales/inventory ratio was the best since FY10—which should translate
    to upside to FY19 GM guidance (50bp+). Finally, Nike’s transformation to
    more of a direct/digital retailer is accelerating—which we think will put
    significant upward pressure on the economics of the business compared to
    historical levels. While valuation is elevated (aftermarket price implies ~30x
    FY19 guide), we note last time Nike hit ~30x (late 2015), futures/revenues
    were peaking & peer multiples were 4 points lower vs today. We think Nike is
    well positioned to monetize reversing multi-year share losses to drive upside
    to guidance (FY19 EPS guidance implied at $2.55-$2.65; +6-10% YOY).

    High Quality F4Q EPS Beat:
    F4Q EPS of $0.69 beat Consensus of $0.64,
    on high quality: 1) Higher rev growth (+13% vs. Street: +8%); 2) Better GM
    on stronger full-price sell through (+65bp vs Street +25bp); 3) Lower tax
    (added $0.04); partially offset by 4) SG&A +17% YOY (vs guide + low-teens).

    Reiterating FY19E EPS:
    We’re reiterating our FY19E EPS of $2.60 (we
    estimate NKE guide implies $2.55-$2.65) based on: 1) Revenues +8% YOY
    (Guide: +HSD); 2) GM +60bp (Guide: 50bp+); 3) SG&A +8% (Guide +HSD).

    Valuation:
    We’re raising our TP to $90 from $78 TP based on ~22x our
    FY20 (CY19) EBITDA (vs 19x prev) and implies a P/E of ~29x (vs ~26x
    prev). Risks: decelerating trends, increasing competition, FX/cost volatility

    They copped a pretty hefty valuation increase from CS back in late June.

    Kavanaugh Classmate Named in Letter Strongly Denies Allegations of Misconduct

    John McCormack

    Mark Judge says he learned he was named in the letter during an interview with the New Yorker.

    The Kavanaugh classmate quoted in the New Yorker is Mark Judge, a writer in Washington, D.C. Judge spoke to THE WEEKLY STANDARD Friday afternoon, strongly denying that any such incident ever occurred. “It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way,” Judge told TWS.

    Judge says he first learned he was named in the letter during an interview with the New Yorker. “[Ronan Farrow] said: As you know, you’re named in the letter. And I did not know,” he said.

    The Kavanaugh classmate told TWS that the New Yorker did not provide him the name of the woman alleging wrongdoing, a specific date of the alleged incident, or the location where the incident is alleged to have occurred. The woman alleging misconduct has requested that her identity be protected, according to media reports.

    After Judge categorically denied ever witnessing an attempted assault by Kavanaugh, I asked him if he could recall any sort of rough-housing with a female student back in high school (an incident that might have been interpreted differently by parties involved). “I can’t. I can recall a lot of rough-housing with guys. It was an all-boys school, we would rough-house with each other,” he said said. “I don’t remember any of that stuff going on with girls.”

    Judge says he still does not know the name of the woman who made the allegations.

    Update: This article has been updated to make clear that the question about “rough-housing” came after Judge had strongly denied witnessing at attempted assault.”

    CEO Pay Fails to Keep Pace With Average Workers


    At American Thinker, Jack Hellner has an eye-opening piece about CEO pay. Start with the fact that there are quite a few CEOs:

    There are around 250,000 CEOs in the U.S., but somehow we hear about only the top few hundred.

    Good point! AEI points out:

    According to both the BLS and the Census Bureau, there are more than 7 million private firms in the US, so the samples of 300-350 firms for CEO pay represent only one of about every 21,500 private firms in the US, or about 1/200 of 1% of the total number of US firms. And yet the AFL-CIO, Financial Times, AP, the WSJ and others compare the average annual wages of hundreds of millions of full-time employees working at the more than 7 million US companies to the CEO pay of executives at only several hundred companies, which is hardly a fair comparison.

    So here are the actual facts, if we look at the entire universe of CEOs:

    In 2005, the median worker made $46,242 and the average CEO made around four times that amount, or around $180,000. In 2017 the median worker made a record $61,372 up around 33%, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average CEO made $183,270 in 2017 or just a 2% or 3% increase in twelve years. The average CEO today makes just three times the average worker, so why does media just repeat the lie? Obviously because they collude with Democrats heightening class resentments, and they don’t want the public to know the truth or they are too lazy to do the research.

    Middle class income is booming under the Trump administration, so CEOs are likely to continue to fall behind, relatively speaking. Meanwhile, the torrent of misinformation from the Democratic Party media will continue unabated.

    If we shot every CEO on earth the world would be immeasurably better.

    Spectator USA – Never mind Paul Manafort, the Mueller inquiry is the biggest scandal in US history

    Roger Kimball

    The main thing to bear in mind about all of those guilty pleas—from those of General Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos, who pled guilty to lying to the FBI, to Rick Gates, who had been in business with Paul Manafort—is that none of the pleas have anything to do with collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the putative reason for Mueller’s investigation in the first place.

    Altogether, Robert Mueller has brought indictments against some 30 people “in connection with” his wholesale fishing expedition into the lives of anyone remotely connected with Donald Trump. What in heavens name does Stormy Daniels or her sleazy lawyer have to do with the ostensible purpose of Mueller’s investigation?

    Here’s another question: would any of the people indicted by Robert Mueller have been subjected to his meticulously methodical madness had they not been in Trump’s orbit?
    Stepping back and looking at Mueller’s campaign against the President as a whole, it is clear that Mueller’s activities are meant primarily to intimidate, pressure, and co-opt associates of Donald Trump in order to convince them to bear witness against him.

    As I have observed many times, I believe this is part of the biggest political scandal in US history. It involves the mobilization of deep state actors in the Obama administration and the weaponization of the FBI and other parts of the Department of Justice.

    Someday, I predict, this complex and sordid tale of the abuse of power by the deep state will occupy a prominent place in the history books. How ever did we allow the state to run roughshod over constitutional protections in order try to overturn a free, open, and democratic elections?

    Again, remember that, had Hillary won, as she was supposed to do, the public would have known nothing about this whole sorry show.

    Most reports of the plea bargain duly note that Manafort is (as The Wall Street Journal put it) “the fifth associate of President Trump to plead guilty in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

    “In connection with,” eh?

    The main thing to bear in mind about all of those guilty pleas—from those of General Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos, who pled guilty to lying to the FBI, to Rick Gates, who had been in business with Paul Manafort—is that none of the pleas have anything to do with collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the putative reason for Mueller’s investigation in the first place.

    In the case of Flynn and Papadopoulos, it is now abundantly clear that both were set up by the FBI as part of a deliberate attempt to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.

    In the case of Manafort, Mueller uncovered real wrongdoing, but, again, it long pre-dated the 2016 campaign and had nothing to do with the Donald Trump or Russians.

    Altogether, Robert Mueller has brought indictments against some 30 people “in connection with” his wholesale fishing expedition into the lives of anyone remotely connected with Donald Trump. What in heavens name does Stormy Daniels or her sleazy lawyer have to do with the ostensible purpose of Mueller’s investigation?

    Stepping back and looking at Mueller’s campaign against the President as a whole, it is clear that Mueller’s activities are meant primarily to intimidate, pressure, and co-opt associates of Donald Trump in order to convince them to bear witness against him.

    As I have observed many times, I believe this is part of the biggest political scandal in US history. It involves the mobilization of deep state actors in the Obama administration and the weaponization of the FBI and other parts of the Department of Justice.

    Someday, I predict, this complex and sordid tale of the abuse of power by the deep state will occupy a prominent place in the history books. How ever did we allow the state to run roughshod over constitutional protections in order try to overturn a free, open, and democratic elections?

    Again, remember that, had Hillary won, as she was supposed to do, the public would have known nothing about this whole sorry show. There would have been no special counsel Mueller, and therefore no indictments. No one would have heard of Fusion GPS, or Christopher Steele, or Bruce or Nellie Ohr, or Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, or Andrew McCabe, or Stefan Halper, or Joseph Mifsud. It all would have been swept under rug, and we would have been none the wiser.

    It will be a long time before we can take the full measure of this stupendous miscarriage of justice and abuse of power. For now, we should all thank God for investigative reporters like Lee Smith and Andy McCarthy and Chuck Ross and Sara Carter who are beavering away and, layer by layer, peeling back this sodden and diseased onion.

    One final comment regarding the recent craze for plea bargains. They are a bad idea, custom-made instruments for encouraging prosecutorial abuse, which is Robert Mueller’s (but not only Robert Mueller’s) stock-in-trade. Instead of charging someone with a specific crime, you inflate and multiply the charges as tool of intimidation and then allow the squirming victim to plead guilty to a lesser offense, even if (as is often the case) he has done nothing wrong. No wonder government prosecutors “win” something like 97 percent of the cases they bring. It’s a disgusting and unfair practice and should be abolished, Paul Manafort’s imperfect appreciation of the distinction between meum and tuum notwithstanding.

    The true value of the old ex australian antarctic territory is that it shows us in real time what happens when chicom high command encounters open borders, we don’t have to be theoretical, just look at what happens to the toothfish and the krill and the suitable sites for monitoring missile launches and satellites.

    Pacific Island chieftains get better deals for selling out sandbars to the chicoms than our elites got for selling out the billion acres and the seas of the AAT.

    Don’t want to harsh m0nty’s mellow (OK, I do want to), but apparently Manafort’s plea bargain relates to activities in the Ukraine around 2012-13. Now this. Seems Manafort’s people were directly involved with both Obama and Biden in that period.

    Not from Instapundit or Politico:

    The agreement doesn’t specify what if anything prosecutors hope to receive about Trump, but Manafort could be well-positioned to provide key insight for investigators working to establish whether the campaign coordinated with Russia. He was among the participants, for instance, in a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians and Trump’s oldest son and son-in-law that was arranged for the campaign to receive derogatory information about Democrat Hillary Clinton. He was also a close business associate of a man who U.S. intelligence believes has ties to Russian intelligence. And while he was working on the campaign, emails show Manafort discussed providing private briefings for a wealthy Russian businessman close to Putin.

    October Surprise? Maybe. In any event, Muellers Wussia Wussia investigation is still very much ongoing. As I’ve said before: “Softly softly … “*

    In Africa, however, leaders have often sought to take shortcuts to maintaining stability, via bribery of potential opponents, or simple repression.

    Elsewhere, existential threats to sitting governments have not been potentially hostile ethnic majorities, but rival political groups fronting ideologies that contain the promise of prosperity for the hungry and angry poor.

    There are examples in East Asia where investment in smallholder agriculture became a priority for governments that were facing the threat of overthrow by communist movements for which poor peasants were a potentially large pool from which to recruit insurgents.

    It thus became imperative to tackle poverty. Agricultural development provided the quickest route to putting money on a more or less permanent basis in the pockets of the hungry and angry masses. And as peasants became more prosperous, their prosperity provided the grounds for a systematic pursuit of industrialisation in order to supply them with the industrial goods that, thanks to rising incomes, they could now afford.

    In Africa, governments have for the most part been lucky to rule over quiescent peasants who make no demands because they are usually contented with the little they have, and have political and social elites that are easy to buy off, manipulate, or intimidate into silence.”

    “I urge everyone to remain focused and not be moved by the ongoing mischaracterised information suggesting that our friendship with China suggest colonialism,” he said, adding that “China has never been known for such!”

    On Thursday, Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakwate dismissed media reports that Zambia was offering its electricity firm, broadcaster, and the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport to China as security against loans.

    “The Zambian Government has not offered any state-owned enterprise to any lender as collateral for any borrowing,” Ms Mwanakatwe said.

    She also dismissed claims that the government was exploring debt/asset swap options.
    China is funding major infrastructure projects in Zambia among them the $300 million upgrade of the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport.

    Beijing has invested more than $2 billion in Zambia’s mining, agriculture, service and housing sectors. It has also built multimillion-dollar stadia, schools and road network.

    The International Monetary Fund has warned that the country is at a high risk of debt distress.”

    Ethiopia became the first country on the continent to have its Chinese debts restructured even as it became apparent that several other countries were waiting for loan concessions to avert distress.

    On Thursday, Ethiopia announced that China had agreed to restructure some of its loans, including the one for the $4 billion railway linking its capital Addis Ababa with Djibouti.

    Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said the loans would be restructured, with a further 20-year extension, which will see its annual repayments come down to an affordable level.

    It is understood that Djibouti could also be on the way to enjoying reprieve, given that its debts from Beijing were already choking it.”

    The ICC was set up in 2002 to try the world’s worst crimes.

    Closing arguments in Ntaganda’s case have been followed with interest after the surprise acquittal of another Congolese rebel leader, Jean-Pierre Bemba.

    Initially sentenced to 18 years for war crimes committed by his troops in the Central African Republic, Bemba was acquitted on appeal in June.
