Santanist unveil statue in Little Rock

SPECIAL SATURDAY POST

Satanists have brought a bronze statue of Baphomet, a winged-goat creature sitting on a throne flanked by two young children, to the Arkansas state capitol.

They want the bronze depiction of the satanic deity to sit along side the Ten Commandments monument, which sits on the Capitol grounds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“If you’re going to have one religious monument up then it should be open to others, and if you don’t agree with that then let’s just not have any at all,” said Satanic Arkansas co-founder Ivy Forrester told the press.

Arkansas state law prohibits the placement of statues on state grounds without legislative sponsorship.

Last year the Ten Commandments monument was heavily damaged by a protestor driving his car into the statue.

No coincidence on X-Box Live outage

You may recall that ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page used G-Mail drafts to communicate in an attempt to get around the NSA gobbling up their private, treasonous conversations about taking down the Trump campaign.

They both had access to a G-Mail account and would communicate through it without ever hitting the save button. Nice try but the spooks in Maryland capture everything that has a 1 and an 0. They probably have this already and I have not hit the save button yet.

Well Wednesday it came out that Microsoft X-Box Live chats are another avenue being monitored by the Puzzle Palace on in Fort Meade, MD. So lo and behold Microsoft’s X-Box servers went down soon after.

If you ask any teenage boy, this does not happen very often. Unless you need to scrub devious communications and users off the servers.

So what does this have to do with anything that X-Box Live servers went down? I have to believe that John Huber, the United States Attorney for the District of Utah, who was assigned by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into the whole DOJ-FBI 2016 Presidential election scandal has unearthed a treasure trove of communications using Microsoft’s platform.

They not only used the chat feature on the platform, but also used the network to place phone calls thinking that would be secure. Obviously, they were mistaken.

And this outage was an attempt by bad actors to cover their tracks.If you look at the areas affected by the outage in appears to concentrated in the Northeast Corridor and other 2016 presidential election Blue States. Interesting.

Some of the “gamers” using the X_Box Live platform allegedly include: James Comey, former FBI Director ; Bruce Ohr, ex-associate deputy attorney general; His wife Nellie Ohr, who worked for Fusion/GPS; Christopher Steele, author of the Trump Dossier, Loretta Lynch, ex US Attorney General; Andrew McCabe, ex-Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Sally Yates, former Deputy Attorney General.

Quite a roster of gamers. Soon we will know all on how they and others gamed the Constitution in an attempt to defeat President Trump.

Markets searching for a shred of news

The news lull of August is in full swing. I have been looking for two hours for a shred of meaningful news to opine about.

A quick look at the financial headlines tells you everything you need to know about global markets. Currency devaluations in Turkey and China are making markets jittery for lack of any real news.

Now don’t get me wrong, China cutting the value of the yuan as a response to President Trump’s tariff threats has meaning to the backwater currency trading markets, but to make global markets move on the scale they have this morning is a bit of overkill and a result of lack of news on other fronts.

The same with the Turkish lira devaluation taking down the emerging markets. This is less than a blip on the screen any other time of the year. Today it’s leading the WSJ.com website.

So now we have big moves in currencies and sovereign bonds — two markets that most investors know very little about — driving overall stock markets.

Well perhaps later today we can get back to real market-driving news like Tesla’s Elon Musk on Twitter showing the check he received from Amazon’s Jeff Bezos to take the electric automaker private.

If this continues tomorrow, I think I’ll give you an update on my honey bees and the honey I harvested. It’s a helluva more interesting than currencies and sovereign bonds.

Chinese trade tariff tiff will melt in August heat

We are in the midst of summer doldrums. Markets reading tariff headlines and reacting to mounting trade war.

I prefer to call it a trade tariff tiff, since it’s all blather as no country will stop trading with the US. While the markets reeled over the newest $200B in tariff against China, this will not be enacted until mid-August, so there is plenty of wiggle room for it to work out prior to the deadline.

The markets seem to agree with this premise since on Thursday stocks are retracing back almost 90% of Wednesday’s loses.

Short post today as there is little else going on.

Rosenstein to take the fall to hide Obama administration’s dirty secrets

Today may be Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s last full day in the job.

Rosenstein has been stonewalling Congress on the release of the DOJ’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI having spies in the Trump campaign prior to any probe into Russian collusion despite facing congressional subpoenas.

Rosenstein was told on Monday by House leadership to supply relevant materials by Friday or face impeachment hearings.

The House Freedom Caucus — a conservative group — last month drafted impeachment articles against Rosenstein, which House leadership has said it will consider should  Rosenstein not comply.

Republican House member Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted this below Wednesday:

“If we were really serious about oversight we’d say the documents will be present at 10:00a.m. tomorrow, if they’re not, at 10:01 we start the impeachment proceedings regarding Rod Rosenstein.”

The House Judiciary Committee has requested from Rosenstein’s office more than a million documents from the FBI and DOJ relating to the Hillary Clinton email probe, the firing of former top FBI official Andrew McCabe, and reported surveillance of a Trump aide during the 2016 presidential election.

Remember Rosenstein is on the hot seat because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recuse himself soon after his appointment of any dealing with DOJ’s Russian probe.

Congress does not have the right to fire Rosenstein, that can only come from Sessions. However they can impeach or charge him with contempt and jail him until the documents are released. The latter is highly unlikely to happen.

Just what is Rosenstein protecting by ignoring the congressional subpoenas is anyone’s guess, but I’ll put a few thoughts out there.

  • The transcript of the tarmac meeting between President Bill Clinton and AG Loretta Lynch, which may include a call from the Obama Oval Office.
  • More details into the death of Hillary Clinton aide Seth Rich and his dealings with Julian Assange.
  • Rosenstein and FBI working through the Five Eyes protocol to spy on Americans here in the US.

Those are just a few bombshells that may be contained in Horowitz’s report, which have been redacted.

Remember Horowitz’s report does not have the weight that Utah US attorney John Huber’s investigation. Huber can and will indict individuals involved in obscuring the FBI and DOJ investigations into the Clinton’s email server and the hiring of Fusion/GPS to produce the “Russian Dossier”.
