Democrats Nervous as ‘Profiles in Corruption’ Book Looms

Top Democrats are signaling not-so-subtly that they are nervous as a forthcoming book from Peter Schweizer that will expose widespread corruption in the Democrat Party drops in just ten days.

Schweizer is a Breitbart News contributing editor and the president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI). He has written multiple bestselling books exposing corruption in Washington.

While little is known publicly about the book thus far, Allen quotes Schweizer as saying he spent a year and a half investigating for it, and that it is “a sweeping, detailed look at how the leading figures of progressivism have leveraged the power of their positions.” Allen reported that the book features chapters on each of them, as well as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

It has also been revealed that the book will expose the “Biden Five,” a group of Biden’s family members beyond son Hunter Biden who have siphoned tens of millions of dollars from taxpayers and from guaranteed loans. As Breitbart News reported, the Burisma Ukrainian natural gas company scandal surrounding Hunter Biden that was at the center of the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment push in Congress is just “the tip of the iceberg” when it comes to Biden corruption, and much more will be exposed in this book.

Man Busted for Killing Elderly Woman Claimed ‘His Pants Fell’ Before Alleged Sex Assault

The man accused of sexually assaulting and killing a 92-year-old woman in Queens claimed to cops that he’d been trying to help the old woman — but then he lost his balance, his belt broke, his pants fell down and his genitals accidentally came in contact with hers, it was revealed in court Friday.

The suspect, 21-year-old Reeaz Khan, told detectives that he found the woman, Maria Fuertes, on the ground near Liberty Avenue and 127th Street in Richmond Hill at about midnight on Monday and tried to help her, a prosecutor said at his arraignment on Friday.

Khan told detectives, “He fell down, his belt broke, his pants fell down and his penis fell near her vagina,” the prosecutor, Joseph Grasso, said in court.

At that point, something came over him, Khan claimed.

“Defendant then stated that he did lift up her skirt and he tried to put his penis inside of her,” the prosecutor added.

Sources previously said Khan admitted to suffering “uncontrollable urges,” and said that this was the first time he acted on them…

Rod Rosenstein Accused of Leading Illegal Surveillance of Journalist Sharyl Attkisson for Obama Admin.

Attkisson reports on her website that “a former U.S. government agent has admitted participating in the illegal government surveillance on then-CBS New [sic] investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.” According to this insider, Rod Rosenstein, then the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, was the person responsible for the project that resulted in the illegal surveillance of her computers and cellphone from 2011 to 2014. He left that position in 2017 to become U.S. Deputy Attorney General in the Trump administration—during which he had a very controversial tenure.

Attkisson’s original case was dismissed, but with this new information, she and her family are now filing suit against Rosenstein and four other men alleged to be involved. The lawsuit alleges that “the illegal surveillance was conducted against Attkisson and other U.S. citizens under a government operation based at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Baltimore, Maryland.”

School Board Member Who Sympathized With Kosher Market Shooters Hailed as a Modern ‘Rosa Parks’

When two shooters killed three people at a kosher grocery store in Jersey City last year, a member of the Jersey City Board of Education attacked calls for “faith and hope” in solidarity with the Jewish victims and instead urged locals to be “brave enough to explore the answer to [the shooters’] message.” She also referred to Jewish people as “brutes.” While local leaders initially condemned her, the local Democratic black caucus rallied around her and some even hailed her as a modern “Rosa Parks.” She has yet to resign and will likely serve until the end of this year.

Yale Psychiatrist Issues Diagnosis of “Psychotic” For Defending Constitutional Rights

by Alan M. Dershowitz

A Yale professor of forensic psychiatry has diagnosed guess who — yours truly — as suffering from “psychosis” for expressing legal views that happen to be on the Constitutional rights of President Donald Trump. Dr. Bandy Lee has never met me, never examined me, never seen my medical records, and never spoken to anyone close to me. Yet she is prepared to offer a diagnosis of “psychosis” which she attributes to my being one of President Trump’s “followers.” (I voted for Hillary Clinton and am a liberal Democrat.)

Indeed, Dr. Lee went even further, diagnosing “the severity and spread of ‘shared psychosis’ among just about all of Donald Trump’s followers.” Nor does she seem to be using these psychiatric terms as political metaphors, dangerous as that would be. She is literally claiming that we are mentally ill and our views should be considered symptoms of our illness, rather than as legitimate ideas.

Anti-Jordan Peterson Professor Accused of Abuse of Power by Former Colleague, Students

In wake of the social media fallout, sources from within the University of Calgary have come forward to The Post Millennial to assert that McCoy’s comments were anything but a joke. The identities of those who spoke out are being protected for their safety due to their proximity to McCoy.

“Young people are being let down by older generations and those in power,” wrote the Swedish teenager in the Guardian. “To some it may seem like we are asking for a lot. But this is just the very minimum of effort needed to start the rapid sustainable transition. The fact that this still — in 2020 — hasn’t been done already is, quite frankly, a disgrace.”

Five Reasons Meghan Markle May Not Have Got on With Britain All That Well

Prince Harry and Princess Meghan astounded the world — and the Royal family, apparently — when they announced they were giving up on their senior royal duties and decamping to Canada. In fact, Meghan has gone already — appearing to leave Harry to pick up the pieces at home.

And it’s a shame, because the UK really did seem ready to embrace its new American princess when the pair tied the knot in a fairytale wedding at Windsor in 2018. Furthermore, the British people really do support the monarchy and do tend to cut them a lot of slack. So what could possibly have gone wrong?

French Researcher Links ‘Neglected’ Enclaves and Prisons to Rise of Radical Islam

Hugo Micheron, a researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), has claimed that the rise in jihadist activity in France and Belgium is directly linked to “neglected” enclaves and prisons in the two countries.

Micheron interviewed 80 jihadists in prison and went to several key areas across France and Belgium — such as Toulouse and Paris and the infamous Brussels suburb of Molenbeek — and found links to historic Islamist movements in the areas and the individuals who would go on to wage jihad, L’Obs reports.

Italy: Pop.Bari Restructuring ‘By Mid-Year’, Economy Minister

No losses for bank account holders promises Gualtieri

(ANSA) — Rome, January 10 — The restructuring of southern Italian lender Banca Popolare di Bari is expected to be completed “by mid-year”, Economy Minister Roberto Gualtieri told the Lower House’s finance commission on Friday.

Gualtieri said the plan was to transform the bank into a joint-stock company (Spa) with “the coverage of losses that will emerge”.

The bank will be recapitalized by Mediocredito Centrale (MCC) and by the Interbank Deposit Protection Fund (FIDT) as well as by private investors that will “hopefully be identified”, the minister said.

The lender’s transformation into a Spa and the recapitalization by MCC and FIDT will have a significant impact “both on the value and on the dimensions of the participation of current stakeholders, while no impact is expected for bank account holders, I am happy to deliver this message”, said Gualtieri.

The minister also said he hoped that FITD will be able to consider some type of incentive for small investors and solutions for ongoing controversies.

Premier Giuseppe Conte’s government in December approved a 900-million-euro bailout of Banca Popolare di Bari after the lender said it urgently needed a bid capital increase and was put into administration.

The money was allocated to Invitalia to finance Mediocredito Centrale (MCC) and enable it to buy a stake in Banca Popolare di Bari.

Tear Gas vs Rocks: Anti-Pension Reform & Yellow Vests Protests Get Heated in France (Videos)

Rallies against France’s pension reform and protests by anti-government Yellow Vests escalated into clashes with police in Paris and elsewhere on Saturday. Police used tear gas and force as some some threw stones and set fires.

The nationwide strike against pension reforms has entered its 38th day in France, coinciding with ‘Act 61’ of demonstrations by the Yellow Vests, the movement that has been protesting state austerity measures each weekend for over a year now.

Tensions this Saturday appear to be particularly high, as clashes between the protesters and law enforcement erupted in multiple locations across the country.

Protesters in Tehran Clash With Riot Police as They Demand the Ayatollah Resigns and Call for Regime Change After Iran Finally Admits to Shooting Down Jet and Killing 176 People

Iranians have gathered in the streets of Tehran to demand the resignation of Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei after the regime admitted it had mistakenly shot down a civilian passenger plane.

Angry crowds gathered on Saturday night in at least four locations in Tehran, chanting ‘death to liars’ and calling for the country’s supreme leader to step down over the tragic military blunder, video from the scene shows.

What began as mournful vigils for Iranian lives lost on the flight soon turned to outrage and protest against the regime, and riot police quickly cracked down, firing tear gas into the crowd.

‘Death to the Islamic Republic’ protesters chanted, as the regime’s security forces allegedly used ambulances to sneak heavily armed paramilitary police into the middle of crowds to disperse the demonstration.

Under Pressure: Iran Admits it Shot Down Jetliner by Mistake

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s Revolutionary Guard on Saturday

acknowledged that it accidentally shot down the Ukrainian jetliner

that crashed earlier this week, killing all 176 people aboard, after

the government had repeatedly denied Western accusations and mounting

evidence that it was responsible.

The plane was shot down early Wednesday, hours after Iran launched a

ballistic missile attack on two military bases housing U.S. troops in

Iraq in retaliation for the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani

in an American airstrike in Baghdad. No one was hurt in the attack on

the U.S. bases.

The admission raised a host of new questions, such as who authorized

the strike on the plane and why Iran did not shut down its

international airport or airspace when it was bracing for a U.S.

reprisal. It also undermined the credibility of information provided

by senior officials, who for three days had adamantly dismissed

allegations of a missile strike as Western propaganda…

Taiwan Election Victory for Tsai Ing-Wen in Blow to China

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen was re-elected for a second term with record-breaking support on Saturday, reaffirming the island’s rejection of closer ties with Beijing in favour of a stronger assertion of Taiwanese identity.

After leading the polls, the incumbent secured more than 8 million votes compared to her opponent, Han Kuo-yu, from the Kuomintang (KMT) party, who drew close to 5.5m.

Ms Tsai, 63 — a trusted US ally — and her ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), had campaigned heavily on the need to protect Taiwan’s democracy from China’s threats to annex the island, frequently reminding voters that the crackdown on Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests could one day be Taiwan.

Muslim Teenagers , Not Climate Change, Cause of Australian Fires

The Daily Telegraph reported that they now know how the Australian fires started. You will not see this in most newspapers. They were deliberately started by two Muslim teenagers living in Australia with their parents. Those teens, Fadi Zraika and his brother, Abraham were seen, now get this, LAUGHING as they left court yesterday and walked out free. Got that? Walked free after setting Australia on fire.

Hundreds of people have been injured, lost their homes and all their possessions and over a million animals that lived in the forests were burned to death. A horrible death that should never have happened. Yet these two Muslim punks who caused all of this can walk out of the court that did not punish them, while laughing. Yes, smirking laughter.

The Muslims at least keep their word. They stated that they would burn down the non-Islamic world and that is what they have been doing. And yet our borders stay open. President Trump wanted to put a ban on further Muslim entry to this country, but received so much flak from do-gooders that he reversed that ban. Those same do-gooders preach about how we need ‘diversity’ in our land. That has not enriched us but has resulted only in people antagonizing and fighting with each other.

Sheep Dog Saves Herd From Aussie Fires

A little black and white sheepdog has a job as sheep herder that she takes seriously. Day by day she guided the sheep to various locations. The sheep seemed to know they were in good paws with that little dog as she led them to various grazing spots and at the end of the day she guided them back home to their barn in Corryong, Victoria, near the South Wales border. The owner of the spread, Stephen Hill, had been at a New Years’ Eve party and got back home at four in the morning, having left hastily after learning of the fire that had broken out.

Seeing that the blazes were quickly approaching his property and the town itself, he grabbed his herd dog and rushed to the barn where hundreds of sheep were gathered.

According to AOL News, the six year old shepherd mix got to work, wrangling the farm’s livestock away from the inferno and into another barn out of the burning area. The heat from the growing fires was fierce. Even so, all but six of the 220 sheep survived, only with Patsy’s help, which is remarkable. Patsy guided them around the flames. What is more, it was still dark when all this was going on.

UT Austin Professor Under Fire for Defending Sex With Underage Boys

Professor Thomas Hubbard of the University of Texas at Austin has come under fire from members of the community for his scholarly writing on the relationship between men and teenage boys. Some members of the community have even begun calling for Hubbard’s termination.

In December, the Dallas Morning News published an editorial entitled “A UT professor ‘researches’ pederasty. Why are we paying for it?” which focused on Hubbard’s research. “Pederasty” refers to sexual relationships between adult men and pubescent or adolescent boys. Such relationships are considered child sexual abuse or statutory rape in most of the modern world.
