    Excellent book about the rise of China and India economically. It's funny because the entire book is about other countries using the US version of capitalism (before Trump) to increase productivity per capita.

    You're an idiot.

    ...she won't...and that is one part of the plan...move and countermove...the case will be appealed and then taken out of her court....or...she moves in favor of Stone...and the case is remanded to another judge...either way she is out...game theory...

    Either way, this is such small ball. It is so far away from where the energy of the DOJ should be. Stone should appeal, move through the courts, sandbag the timeframe and Trump should pardon after the election, when its not a distraction.

    So far the swamp is winning on points.

    It seems small but it is all tied together. This is one more “Judge” who is an activist.

    Every part of the puzzle is still needed to complete the picture and yes so far the haters of America seem to be winning but it’s a war not just a battle. For something that took over 60 years to put in place the first 3 years have been very productive in reversing. Moves and counter moves is how this will be played until there isn’t any more rope.

    The formerly liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has just handed the Trump administration a victory on a rule limiting referrals from Title X clinics to abortion providers.

    The 7-4 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned decisions issued by judges in Washington, Oregon and California. The court had already allowed the administration’s changes to start taking effect while the government appealed those rulings.

    The changes ban taxpayer-funded clinics in the Title X program for low-income women from making abortion referrals, a restriction opponents characterize as a “gag rule.”

    Beginning March 4, the rules will also prohibit clinics that receive federal money from sharing office space with abortion providers, which critics said would force many Title X providers to find new locations, undergo expensive remodels or shut down — further reducing access to the program.

    This clearly shows that elections have consequences as America’s most notorious liberal leaning appeals court, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal, has flipped to majority conservative.

    In few places has the effect been felt more powerfully than in the sprawling 9th Circuit, which covers California and eight other states.

    Because of Trump’s success in filling vacancies, the San Francisco-based circuit, long dominated by Democratic appointees, has suddenly shifted to the right, with an even more pronounced tilt expected in the years ahead.

    Trump has now named 10 judges to the 9th Circuit — more than one-third of its active judges — compared with seven appointed by President Obama over eight years.

    “Trump has effectively flipped the circuit,” said 9th Circuit Judge Milan D. Smith Jr., an appointee of President George W. Bush.

    This is excellent news and shows just how important it is that President Trump and Mitch McConnell be able to continue their work for five more years.

    No matter the successes so far though there is still a lot of work to do. More federal judges, appeals court judges and Supreme Court justices.


    Even on the 9th Circuit the work is not yet complete:

    Democratic appointees still make up the majority of active judges — 16 to 13. But the court also has judges on “senior status” who continue to sit on panels that decide cases. Senior status rank gives judges more flexibility but allows them to continue to work, even full time.

    Of the senior judges who will be deciding cases on “merits” panels — reading briefs and issuing rulings — 10 are Republicans and only three are Democratic appointees, Smith said.

    “You will see a sea change in the 9th Circuit on day-to-day decisions,” Smith predicted.

    The biggest change will come in controversial cases that test the constitutionality of laws and the legal ability of presidents to establish contentious new rules. The 9th Circuit is weighing challenges to Trump on a wide array of issues, from immigration to reproductive rights, and the rightward tilt is likely to make it easier for the president to prevail.

    While the Democrats have been focused on nonsense, Mueller, impeachment and more, the GOP under the leadership of President Trump and Mitch McConnell have been marching forward doing the work that needs to be done to make America even greater than it is today.

    Heard debate this morning about more Trump use of the Supreme Court than other Presidents. Not one of the people made the correlation to judicial activism being the culprit. Perhaps if the Judiciary would go back to interpreting the law as opposed to making the law Trump and SCOTUS would not be so well acquainted.

    Let us not forget this is a lawsuit where, for the months leading up to now, the wrong side won and the right side lost.

    That is a given, based on the result of the case in the Supreme Court.

    Is not the complaint that the right side won too soon?

    What became of "justice delayed is justice denied"?

    As I stated in the other thread about the Latina....I would rather have them uphold the law rather than have them interpret what they think a law means to them.

    In the process of doing research for a 2003 piece on Jeffrey Epstein, Vanity Fair writer Vicky Ward had two women who were willing to go on record accusing the financier of having victimized them.

    They weren’t printed in the eventual article because Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter either believed Epstein or didn’t feel the accusations met the magazine’s editorial standards, depending on whose account you have more faith in.


    Even still, the strange piece that emerged from what Ward could discover about Epstein didn’t exactly paint a rosy picture.

    The Talented Mr. Epstein” painted a picture of an arrogant man with strange passions who had apparently made a lot of money even though no one had an idea how he had made it. It described, with telling subtext, how there were “many women in his life, mostly young, but there is no one of them to whom he has been able to commit.”

    The article detailed parties attended by “plutocrats” and plenty of powerful friends, but what drew these individuals to him remained a big question mark.


    This is a summary of a much longer piece, but the point is, this is what a Vanity Fair writer was able to find out doing several months of research in 2002 and 2003.

    It was also after Epstein first surfaced on many people’s radar because Bill Clinton, fresh out of the White House, had traipsed around Africa on Epstein’s plane — now dubbed the “Lolita Express” for ferrying young girls to and fro for the world’s most infamous sex trafficker.


    If this is what a reporter could discover, what, pray tell, do you think the Secret Service could have discovered about Epstein and what can charitably be called his lifestyle before Clinton boarded the “Lolita Express”?

    Whatever they discovered, it wasn’t enough to dissuade Clinton from boarding, given the fact that we’re talking about the trip again.

    This time, it’s because new photos have emerged of the former president with both a woman who accuses Epstein of sexually assaulting her and Epstein’s alleged procuress, Ghislaine Maxwell.

    The photos, obtained by the U.K. tabloid The Sun, show Clinton with Maxwell as the two boarded the notorious 727 private jet that Epstein used.

    In another photo, his arm is around Chauntae Davies, described as Epstein’s “personal masseuse.”

    Davies, now 40, says she was one of Epstein’s sex slaves.

    “It’s clear that Epstein was using this private jet and his wealth to get close to rich and powerful people,” she told The Sun.

    “Looking back at these images now,” Davies said, “it raises a lot of questions about why Bill Clinton was using the plane and what perhaps Jeffrey may have been trying to accomplish by having him around.”


    It’s worth noting that Davies said Clinton was a “complete gentleman,” and there’s no indication he engaged in any untoward behavior during the trip. She was in her early 20s at the time and said she had been sexually assaulted by Epstein on other trips.



    Davies told The Sun that she was asked to leave for the Africa jaunt with less than a week’s notice.

    “That was all I was told, just a simple yes or no and can I leave in a week?” she said. “Meaning, get all necessary shots, reschedule any existing appointments, pack a suitcase and meet us in New York to fly to Africa.

    “It did weigh heavy on my mind the remoteness of being on the other side of the world with Jeffrey, not knowing what to expect from him.

    “I was praying Jeffrey wouldn’t make a move on me, desperately wanting everything about this trip to be kept professional.”

    She only found out on the tarmac in New York that she would be traveling with the former president.
    upload_2020-2-25_11-49-37.jpeg
    Davies described an amicable enough trip: “Everybody cracked jokes at one another. Clinton was chiming in cracking jokes along with us, and we were all laughing and bonding over corny jokes,” she said.


    “A movie was put on, everyone took either a seat in the giant armchairs or on the floor, and watched it all together. Eventually, everyone fell asleep to the movie.”

    She describes bonding with Clinton over the fact that her great uncle was the chef at Blair House, the White House’s guest house during Clinton’s time in the White House. Davies said she helped Clinton pick out a bracelet for his daughter, Chelsea, at a wooden jewelry store in Ghana.

    She also said that she hadn’t told anyone that Epstein was essentially treating her as a sex slave.

    “I felt shamed by what had been happening with Jeffrey and I was doing my best acting performance to keep things looking as professional as I could,” she said.


    “I had to cover it up for everyone. I still thought it was happening only to me and I couldn’t talk about it with any of the other assistants.”

    This, again, is worth noting. Yes, she may have thought she was alone. It’s entirely possible — probable, in fact — the Secret Service didn’t know about what had happened to her. Plausible deniability is stretched, however, when it’s posited they had no idea about anything Jeffrey Epstein was doing.

    Vicky Ward was able to discover, as a journalist, that this was not the kind of millstone a president needed to tie around his neck. The Secret Service, tasked with the protection of the president, couldn’t determine that?

    No one is accusing Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct in this case. What we’re asking of him, instead, is something more than a pro forma statement.


    What Clinton knew about Epstein — and when he knew it — has always been a question he’s needed to answer.

    That’s even more true now that these pictures have emerged.

    For all the ignorant cucks out there.....

    In 1998, a career military officer was elected president of the wealthiest country in Latin America on a platform of socialism. It was an election victory that shocked the world, as many believed that the catastrophic failure of the Soviet Union had closed the book on socialism as a form of government.

    "The philosopher Francis Fukuyama famously declared that history itself had ended," narrated Fox News anchor Bret Baier in Fox Nation's "The Unauthorized History of Socialism."

    "Western liberal democracy had emerged, as what he called, the final form of human government," continued Baier, "But did the collapse of communism really mean the end of socialism?"

    Today, Hugo Chavez is gone, but his socialist "Bolivarian Revolution" drags on, trapping oil-rich Venezuela in an escalating state of crisis.

    After assuming power, Chavez instituted a traditional socialist agenda, hiking taxes, nationalizing private industries and increasing spending on social programs to 40 percent of GDP.

    From 2007 to 2010, the Chavez regime seized majority control of four massive oil projects and American-owned oil rigs, and implemented a new tax on oil production, among other measures.

    "Chavez won four national elections in a row," said Baier in the Fox Nation piece, "But when oil prices fell, the flaws of what was now called Chavismo were starkly revealed."

    "What happens is that concentrated power and coercion that is a necessary part of socialism will distort the economy and then breed the need for more power for the government in the future to try to correct the inefficiencies that they've created in the past," argued American Enterprise Institute scholar Mark Perry.

    "Once the government starts to take over the economy, and uses force and coercion and creates distortions that breed future government interventions to correct their past mistakes, and then you're down the road to serfdom," said Perry.

    BERNIE SANDERS' DEFENSE OF CASTRO'S CUBA EVOKES SOCIALISM'S BRUTAL HISTORY

    Chavez died in 2013 and his successor, Nicolas Maduro, a former bus driver, doubled down on Chavismo.

    In 2018, 80 percent of the country was living below the poverty line and the annual rate of inflation reached 1 million percent, rendering the wealth of most Venezulan's nearly worthless.

    A study published by the United Nations on Sunday found that one of out every three people in Venezuela is unable to secure enough food to meet their daily basic dietary requirements.

    The assessment, conducted by the U.N.'s World Food Programme, found that 9.3 million people are "food insecure." Seventy percent of Venezuelans said that while food is available, they cannot afford it.

    "The economy imploded and the country has collapsed to the point that it is generating more refugees now than the Middle East, than Syria," said Niall Ferguson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.

    NEW HARMONY: AMERICA'S FAILED 19TH-CENTURY SOCIALIST EXPERIMENT

    In fact, in the last three years, 15 percent of the population of Venezuela has fled the country.

    "It's been a catastrophe and it's a catastrophe that was predictable if you understood what socialism does," concluded Ferguson. "I think it is important because so few people on the left in Europe and in the United States recognized Chavez for what he was."
