This is exactly how Putin got rich and powerful and he’s been training Trump! And McConnell and the sorts will be the Oligarchs of America. His wife Cho now helps her dad’s transport business!

Hillary Clinton Tweets Disapproval of Trump's Iran Deal Pullout

Hillary Clinton

Pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal is a big mistake. It makes America less safe and less trusted. Iran is now more dangerous. What's plan B? Anyone who thinks bombing is the answer is woefully misinformed.
9:02 PM - May 8, 2018

As Secretary of State, I helped negotiate the crippling international sanctions that brought Iran to the table. It would be much harder a second time, now that our credibility is shot.

It will also be harder to deal with other threats like ballistic missiles and terrorism. Now we have no leverage and Iran is free to do what it wants.

Replying to @ericgarland
Oh yeah, @CyrusVanceforDA WHO took a YUGE *Campaign contribution* from @realDonaldTrump & "magically" the fraud investigation re Ivanka & Don Jr was dropped? THAT Vance? @CREWcrew & @FBI should look into this "coincidence" of Cy interfering in THIS

How is this even allowed?????

"Marc Kasowitz, paid Vance a visit. Soon after Vance’s office dropped the investigation, Kasowitz donated and raised a combined total of more than fifty thousand dollars for Vance’s reëlection campaign."

Replying to @ericgarland and @lauferlaw
Mr.Garland, wasn't Sneiderman investigating Vance as well?

Replying to @ericgarland
Wasn't the AG office investigating Vance? What, they couldn't pick someone else to investigate Schneiderman?

He should Recuse.

Article From WSJ..Linked to CNET:


House Democrats are ready to pull the curtain open on more than 3,000 Facebook ads bought by Russians that aimed to disrupt the 2016 US presidential election.

"We have been in ongoing discussions with Facebook and hope to have the final redacted ads in our possession within a matter of days," Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, said in a statement. "As soon as we receive them, it is our intention to share them with the public."


NRA shows its assholery at ELLEN'S RESTAURANT-Dallas


NRA unleashes attack on local business for resisting its racism

Ellen’s, a restaurant in downtown Dallas where the NRA is holding its annual convention, had a message printed on its customer receipts: “Thanks for visiting Ellen’s! A portion of this week’s proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to implementing reasonable and effective gun regulation.”

Most Americans consider that a sensible message — especially following the mass shootings at Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Parkland and the daily murders all around the country. But it angered the NRA.

The group tweeted an image of an Ellen’s receipt. “Attn @AnnualMeetings attendees. Steer clear of Ellen’s in downtown Dallas! Why go there when there are so many other great choices.”

Joe Groves, the owner of Ellen’s, said he added the message because of what he heard from NRA convention attendees. “I’m making a list of the vile, racist, moronic conversations overheard from NRA attendees eating at the restaurant,” he wrote on Facebook. “They don’t even speak softly.”

He told the website Eater that the attendees have insulted his wait staff with racial epithets. One person reportedly asked a Latino staff member, “Your illegals are kept in the kitchen, right?”

Another NRA fan reportedly told black employees they “don’t sound black” and asked if they were from India.

“The only reason we need our guns is because of the blacks,” another attendee reportedly declared

But these repugnant statements are part of a pattern for the NRA and its supporters. The group has embraced racism and bigotry as part of its pro-gun advocacy.

At the convention, NRA board member Ted Nugent released a gun line branded the “American spearchucker series.”
The racist term “spearchucker” is a derogatory reference to African people.

Nugent has repeatedly used racist terms and the NRA has not removed him from his position with the organization.
Over and over again, Nugent has said “n*****,” and was even defended by the Trump presidential campaign, for which he was a surrogate.

He also described President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel.”

The rest of the NRA isn’t much better.


Send your support to Joe Groves, owner of Ellen's Restaurant in Dallas.

UK regulator orders Cambridge Analytica to release data on US voters[/ 30 Days to Comply

UK regulator orders Cambridge Analytica to release data on US voters

In landmark cross-border decision, Information Commissioner’s Office gives company 30 days to comply with David Carroll’s request

Carole Cadwalladr
Sat 5 May 2018 09.13 EDT

Cambridge Analytica has been ordered to hand over all the data and personal information it has on an American voter, including details of where it got the data and what it did with it, or face a criminal prosecution.

The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) served the enforcement notice to the company on Friday in a landmark legal decision that opens the way for up to 240 million other American voters to request their data back from the firm under British data protection laws.

The test case was taken to the ICO by David Carroll, an associate professor at Parsons School of Design in New York.
As a US citizen, he had no means of obtaining this information under US law, but in January 2016 he discovered Cambridge Analytica had processed US voter data in the UK and that this gave him rights under British laws.

Cambridge Analytica had refused to accept this and told the ICO that Carroll was no more entitled to make a so-called “subject access request” under the UK Data Protection Act “than a member of the Taliban sitting in a cave in the remotest corner of Afghanistan”.


Kerry quietly seeking to salvage Iran deal he helped craft


From The Boston Globe:


Kerry quietly seeking to salvage Iran deal he helped craft

May 04, 2018
WASHINGTON — John Kerry’s bid to save one of his most significant accomplishments as secretary of state took him to New York on a Sunday afternoon two weeks ago, where, more than a year after he left office, he engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official.

With the Iran deal facing its gravest threat since it was signed in 2015, Kerry has been on an aggressive yet stealthy mission to preserve it, using his deep lists of contacts gleaned during his time as the top US diplomat to try to apply pressure on the Trump administration from the outside.
President Trump, who has consistently criticized the pact and campaigned in 2016 on scuttling it, faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether to continue abiding by its terms.


Obama-era diplomats who are dismayed by what they see as Trump’s disruptive approach to diplomacy, and who view the Iran nuclear deal as a factor for stability in the Middle East and for global nuclear nonproliferation.
The pact, which came after a marathon negotiating session in Vienna that involved Iran and six world powers, lifted sanctions in return for Iran stopping its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

“It is unusual for a former secretary of state to engage in foreign policy like this, as an actual diplomat and quasi-negotiator,” said Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institution. “Of course, former secretaries of state often remain quite engaged with foreign leaders, as they should, but it’s rarely so issue-specific, especially when they have just left office.”

Kerry declined to be interviewed for this story.
The quiet lobbying campaign — by him and others — is being conducted below the radar because he and his allies believe a high-profile defense of the deal by prominent Democrats would only backfire and provoke Trump, making it more likely the president would pull the United States out of the deal.

One more tidbit not in there: Judge at one point said to Manafort lawyer "So what?"



Let's remain hopeful that this Judge is covering all bases.
