5 February 2019 - Afternoon News
Tonight 6 PM Pacific Time, 9 PM Eastern Time:
I see Schumer is already criticizing my State of the Union speech, even though he hasn’t seen it yet. He’s just upset that he didn’t win the Senate, after spending a fortune, like he thought he would. Too bad we weren’t given more credit for the Senate win by the media!
Tremendous numbers of people are coming up through Mexico in the hopes of flooding our Southern Border. We have sent additional military. We will build a Human Wall if necessary. If we had a real Wall, this would be a non-event!
Maxine Waters doesn’t want to hear what Donald Trump has to say tonight. The California congresswoman melted down when asked if she would be listening to Trump’s second State of the Union address this evening. ...
“I don’t even know why he wants to come and give the State of the Union,” Waters huffed to Essence magazine. … I’m not looking forward to his State of the Union, and I hope people will turn the television off!” http://www.theamericanmirror.com/maxine-sotu-meltdown-trump-not-worthy-of-being-listened-to-i-hope-people-turn-the-television-off/
The Ginsberg Appearance at Concert Certainly Appears to be an Elaborate Hoax:
[Here is the video of the entire concert that was posted by the Constitution Center ] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?727=&v=PEkrT47xGFYYouTube) (where the concert happened) as a "not listed video" to keep it hidden. (not for long, it got found and they will probably pull this) it can only be found via direct link. At no point in the entire hour and a half video was she ever shown, and the audience was very small, with only 30 or so people. She should have been highly visible.
I tried downloading this, and for the first time ever received an error, saying I was not permitted by Google to download it. Obviously they don't want evidence gathered. Here is the back story: The Washington Post published a piece claiming Ginsburg attended a concert "in her honor" and that she appeared to be "Resplendent, Glam, Magnificent, and great". They have since [Edited their BS]
(https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/ruth-bader-ginsburg-makes-first-public-appearance-since-cancer-surgery/2019/02/04/251d59f4-28cf-11e9-b2fc-721718903bfc_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.a32122fea6bf) to not include that.
BIG PROBLEM: The linked video of the concert above, despite running for an hour and a half, does not show her there. Additionally leaked photos of the event afterward do not show her there. She was obviously not there. So why would this story be run? ANSWER: The SOTU is tomorrow night, and the world needed convincing she's alive. Now all they will say is she did not show up to the SOTU because she needed rest after the concert. Ok, here's the kicker: Click the video link for that concert. Below the video, it is showing as "not listed in Youtube's search". So whoever posted it wanted it to be there, but not be found so the media can claim it was posted to Youtube, and cause people to assume Ruth must be in it. But it was never linked from any news reports and cannot be found in a Youtube search. WHY?
At the conclusion of the curtain call, the Lead is clearly scanning the room to see if RBG is in attendance and subsequently wears an unmistakable face of disappointment. Proof provided—

Every media story that covered her alleged appearance used file photos. http://www.theamericanmirror.com/mystery-no-pictures-from-first-ginsburg-public-appearance-since-surgery/
One WaPo columnist claimed he was hugged and wished a happy birthday by RBG Monday night.
David Hagedorn, who describes himself as a “Dining columnist for Arlington & Bethesda Magazines; Washington Post contributor; freelance food/travel/design writer” deleted his tweet and locked his Twitter account.
Here was his tweet: “What a delight to see RBG tonight at “Notorious RBG in Song,” written & beautifully performed by her daughter-in-law, Patrice Michaels. She sat in the back, a few rows behind us, looking resplendent. Being hugged & wished a happy birthday by her made a grand night spectacular,” Hagedorn said in a since-deleted tweet.
Hagedorn deleted his tweet and then made his Twitter account private.
I presume this didn’t include the part about illegals voting?
Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen yesterday submitted a joint report to President Donald J. Trump evaluating the impact of any foreign interference on election infrastructure or the infrastructure of political organizations, including campaigns and candidates in the 2018-midterm elections.
The classified report was prepared pursuant to section 1(b) of Executive Order 13848, Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Influence in a United States Election, which the President issued on Sept. 12, 2018.
Throughout the 2018 midterm election cycle, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security worked closely with federal, state, local, and private sector partners, including all 50 states and more than 1400 local jurisdictions, to support efforts to secure election infrastructure and limit risk posed by foreign interference. Efforts to safeguard the 2020 elections are already underway.
Although the specific conclusions within the joint report must remain classified, the Departments have concluded there is no evidence to date that any identified activities of a foreign government or foreign agent had a material impact on the integrity or security of election infrastructure or political/campaign infrastructure used in the 2018 midterm elections for the United States Congress. This finding was informed by a report prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) pursuant to the same Executive Order and is consistent with what was indicated by the U.S. government after the 2018 elections.

Dagny: Well researched and presented. We have been fed a load of bs from the marijuana advocates. This is a prime example of powerful financial interests warping the public perception and government policy.
"I was surprised, to say the least. I tended to be a libertarian on drugs. Years before, I’d covered the pharmaceutical industry for The New York Times. I was aware of the claims about marijuana as medicine, and I’d watched the slow spread of legalized cannabis without much interest.
Jackie [ his wife who is a psychiatrist ] would have been within her rights to say, I know what I’m talking about, unlike you. Instead she offered something neutral like, I think that’s what the big studies say. You should read them.
So I did. The big studies, the little ones, and all the rest. I read everything I could find. I talked to every psychiatrist and brain scientist who would talk to me. And I soon realized that in all my years as a journalist I had never seen a story where the gap between insider and outsider knowledge was so great, or the stakes so high.
I began to wonder why—with the stocks of cannabis companies soaring and politicians promoting legalization as a low-risk way to raise tax revenue and reduce crime—I had never heard the truth about marijuana, mental illness, and violence.
Over the last 30 years, psychiatrists and epidemiologists have turned speculation about marijuana’s dangers into science. Yet over the same period, a shrewd and expensive lobbying campaign has pushed public attitudes about marijuana the other way. And the effects are now becoming apparent.
Almost everything you think you know about the health effects of cannabis, almost everything advocates and the media have told you for a generation, is wrong….

Pope kisses an Islamic leader who has repeatedly called for the assassination of those who leave Islam...
Sunni Islam’s highest authority, Ahmed el-Tayeb, believes that Christian converts should be “killed” and has said so on several occasions.
Ahmed el-Tayeb was interviewed in 2016 where he spoke out against Western values, homosexuality and leaving Islam.
On Monday Pope Francis visited the Middle East where he embraced Sunni Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb.
Karl Marx’s Grave in London was attacked by someone using a hammer. No mention if a sickle was involved as well:
The tomb of Karl Marx at London’s Highgate cemetery has been vandalised in a targeted attack that means the Grade I-listed monument will “never be the same again”.
The suspected vandal damaged a marble plaque which was taken from Marx’s original 1883 gravestone and incorporated into the 1954 monument.
Images of the defaced memorial, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year, show what appears to be damage done by a hammer to the lettering of Marx’s name and the marble on which it is mounted.
Dungavell said: “We might do a security review with the Marx Grave Trust and speak to the police about what should happen about any recommendations they may have.”
He pointed out that the Marx memorial has been repeatedly damaged since it was installed.
Dungavell said: “It has attracted great controversy over the years. It has had paint daubed all over it. It has had people chanting at it, the bronze bust on the top has been dragged off with ropes, and there was even a pipe bomb set off in January 1970 that damaged the front face of it.”
