Networks Censor Latest Bombshell on Russia/Uranium/Clinton Scandal

The latest developments in the Russia/Uranium/Clinton scandal were first reported, on Tuesday, by The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann. On Tuesday’s edition of FNC’s Hannity, Solomon and Circa News’s Sara Carter were invited on to lay out the latest details of this scandal, that the Big Three networks, so far, have refused to report on.

HOST SEAN HANNITY: According to new reports tonight from The Hill’s John Solomon and Circa News’ Sara Carter, there are brand-new FBI documents that show the Russian nuclear industry officials kicked back millions and millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation all while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and helped approve the uranium one deal which gave Moscow, Russia, Vladimir Putin control of 20 percent of American uranium, the foundational materials for nuclear weapons.

And tonight, they are also reporting the FBI now has evidence that Russia for years has been doing this and they are reporting the FBI has evidence that literally they used bribery to gain control over America’s uranium industry. All while the Obama administration did nothing. And the Clinton’s benefited to the tune of nearly $145 million. You want a real Russia collusion story? We’ve got it.

HANNITY: Joining us exclusively, John Solomon, he is with The Hill. Sara Carter, Circa News.
Sara, let me start with you. We are talking about bribery, we are talking about blackmail. We are talking about what else that was going on that the Obama Justice Department new and still gave Putin, Moscow, Russia 20 percent of our uranium and the money goes to the Clinton Foundation. Let’s talk about it.

SARA CARTER, CIRCA NEWS: Well, back in 2009, the FBI was actually approached by a businessman. By an American businessman who said, look, I have information on the Russians. And I am going to give this to you and they said, would you work with us? They came to an agreement. He went inside. For 15 months, Sean, for 15 months, the FBI was investigating the Russian nuclear industry and agency. They knew that there were kickbacks.

They knew that there were bribes and they knew how dangerous this was to national security. And 15 months had passed in the investigation and then CFIUS, 13 members of the governing board approved the Uranium One deal to the Russians. I mean, this was something that I contacted FBI officials tonight. FBI sources that were there during that time. And they said the FBI would have had all of this information.

It would have been their duty on the board, on the CFIUS board to report that information. And so, now what I’m thinking is, if they did report that information, it’s got to be out there. We’ve got to be able to FOIA it. We’ve got to be able to see these documents. And know what was going on and why the United States government decided to approve a deal that would give 20 percent of U.S. uranium assets to Vladimir Putin. There is the connection with Russia.

HANNITY: Let me go to you, John, and you’re a reporter of The Hill. So, the FBI basically has evidence and the former documents’ e-mails financial records and eyewitnesses proving the Russian’s bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering to secure their Uranium One deal – and about $145 million kicked back to the Clinton Foundation and they knew it in 2009? They knew it before they even approved the deal?

JOHN SOLOMON, THE HILL: Yeah. You said in your opening monologue that the Democrats are concerned. That Russians tampered with our election results in 2016. Well, six years before that, they tampered with our nuclear security. The case proved that the nuclear Russia, Russia’s nuclear industry had bribed their way and compromised the American truck company that moved all of Russia’s uranium in the United States.

That’s a national security threat. And for two years, the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton and everybody who has been quoted that said, the Obama administration had no knowledge of a national security threat and that’s why they did not have any problem approving the Uranium One deal. Well, guess what? Tonight, we have a real National Security threat that was proven in real time in 2009 and it’s going to be interesting to see what Congress does tomorrow morning. Chuck Grassley has a hearing with Jeff Sessions on the seat. And I think you might see some interesting questions.

Weinstein Helped Pay For Bubba’s Legal Fees During Monica Lewinsky Scandal

Records indicate that back when President Bill “Bubba” Clinton was embroiled in his own sex scandal against former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, he received a bit of financial help from none other than his good pal Harvey Weinstein, an alleged rapist and sexual harasser.

As noted by Fox News, a recently uncovered 1998 story in The Washington Post reveals that Weinstein donated the maximum contribution of $10,000 Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund.

The now-disgraced movie mogul’s relationship with America’s former President and First Lady has come under severe scrutiny in recent days as the allegations against Weinstein have stacked up. Naturally, the Clintons have pleaded ignorance in regards to his behavior.

Former President Bill Clinton has also been accused of both sexual harassment and rape in the past. When asked about this parallel on the BBC, Hillary Clinton said that’s all in “the past.”

“That has all been litigated,” Clinton said. “That was subject of a huge investigation in the late ’90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past.”

“Clearly in the past”? So was a majority of Harvey Weinstein’s allegations, several of which were also settled out of court, just like the former President, who paid $850,000 to Paul Jones after being accused of sexual harassment.

Weinstein donated as much as $250,000 to The Clinton Foundation; the funds will not be returned according to their spokesman Craig Minassian.

“Suggesting @ClintonFdn return funds from our 330,000+ donors ignores the fact that donations have been used to help people across the world,” Minassian wrote on Twitter.

Seth Meyers gives the finger to any Trump supporters who happen to be watching his show

Earlier, we talked about how Late-Night talk shows are archaic and unnecessary.  The hosts are dinosaurs, lumbering across the entertainment landscape, completely unaware that the asteroid which will eventually wipe them out hit back in the 90’s. Like the Clintons, these shows serve no purpose but continue to be a staple of American life – even though everyone has moved on.

WATCH: Puerto Rico’s Delegate To Congress: ‘Everything We’ve Asked For, Trump Has Provided’

Speaking to USA Today, Puerto Rico’s delegate to the United States Congress, Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon, challenged claims that President Donald Trump has forgotten the island, and bungled emergency response in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

“I will tell you that everything that the president said that he was going to send to the island, it’s getting there. The resources are there. The help is there,” Colon told the outlet. He instructed all his cabinet members to treat Puerto Rico as a state, in terms of this hurricane. I mean, that kind of instruction is important to have access to all those programs.”

WATCH:

Gonzalez-Colon also said she was impressed with Trump’s knowledge of the situation on the ground in Puerto Rico, and mentioned that the President spoke to Puerto Rico’s governor at least once every day, during and after the hurricane.

She said that while she might not “praise all the ways that he managed the issue” — she definitely criticized the President for his off-the-cuff remarks and his unwillingness to “follow the script” that kept him on subject during the first few days of emergency response — everything Trump promised to send has arrived, and help is now getting to the far corners of the island.

CBS: Sure, Obama Signed Harmful Opioid Law; But Blame Republicans Instead!

CBS on Sunday and Monday hammered Republicans in Congress for supporting a law in 2015 that changed how the Department of Drug Enforcement could regulate opioid distribution. The network minimized the fact that the law was signed by Barack Obama (as the opioid crisis grew). On 60 Minutes, Sunday, Obama’s name was mentioned just once. 

On Monday, This Morning‘s Nancy Cordes blamed, “Pennsylvania’s Tom Marino and Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn introduced this bill back in 2015. Well, each of them received significant contributions that year from the pharmaceutical industry, more than $70,000 for Marino. More than $160,000 for Blackburn and $177,000 to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch.” 

 

 

Allowing the ex-President to divert blame, Cordes spun, “It ended up passing with unanimous consent and signed by President Obama. Former administration officials, some of them now say they didn’t realize how much this one bill would change things.” 

Oh, well, if Obama didn’t realize the effect, it doesn’t matter? In the 8am hour, co-host Norah O’Donnell reoriented the blame to the GOP: “Republican member of Congress Tom Marino and Marsha Blackburn promoted it as a way to ensure patients had access to the medication they needed.” 

The only other hint of culpability came when co-host Charlie Rose noted that the bill was “approved by Democrats.” 

On 60 Minutes, the ONLY mention of Obama came when correspondent Bill Whitaker noted, “A week later, with no objections from Congress or the DEA, President Barack Obama signed it into law, without ceremony or the usual bill signing photo-op.” 

The Washington Post, which worked with CBS as a joint investigation, didn’t mention Obama until paragraph ten. Finally, writers Scott Higham and Lenny Bernstein noted the Democrat’s role: 

On April 19, Obama signed the bill. The White House issued a one-page news release announcing its enactment.

Marino also issued a release taking credit for the legislation.

“With this law, our drug enforcement agencies will have the necessary tools to address the issue of prescription drug abuse across the country. I applaud the hard work of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in Congress and President Obama for realizing the importance of this legislation.”

Industry groups also thanked Obama.

The Washington Post’s Dan Zak cheered his paper’s attack on Congressman Marino, now Donald Trump’s nominee for DEA czar. 

If this legislation was ill-advised, than that means that all those who were apart of it are culpable. It passed with no objection through the House and the Senate and was signed by the President. If, as CBS allowed Obama defenders to state, the then-President “didn’t realize” what the bill would do, he was ignorant. Either way, the Democrat should be the subject of some blame too.

NORAH O’DONNELL: The investigation found the drug industry contributed at least one and a half million to 23 lawmakers who co-sponsored the bill, weakening enforcement laws at the height of the opioid epidemic. Congressman Thomas Marino, the chief advocate for that bill, is now President Trump’s nominee to be federal drug czar. Nancy Cordes is on Capitol Hill with information about the bill and its key sponsors. Nancy, good morning. 

NANCY CORDES: Good morning. This bill was sold on Capitol Hill as a way to ensure that patients had access to pain medication, but former DEA officials say that it actually stripped their agency to  go after suspicious shipments, for example, when one town of 400 people in West Virginia got nine million hydrocodone pills over just two years. Now, as Bill Whitaker mentioned, Pennsylvania’s Tom Marino and Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn introduced this bill back in 2015. Well, each of them received significant contributions that year from the pharmaceutical industry, more than $70,000 for Marino. More than $160,000 for Blackburn and $177,000 to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, who negotiated the bill with the DEA. It ended up passing with unanimous consent and signed by President Obama. Former administration officials, some of them now say they didn’t realize how much this one bill would change things. We reached out to Marino and Blackburn’s office for comment, they did not respond. Senator Hatch’s office told the Washington Post his office actually collaborated with the DEA and the agency, Charlie, had many opportunities to put the breaks on this.  

… 

8:02am 

O’DONNELL: The new law deals with drug distributors, who ship pain pills from manufacturers to drugstores. Republican members of Congress —  Republican member of Congress Tom Marino and Marsha Blackburn promoted it as a way to ensure patients had access to the medication they needed.

Classic novel on racism pulled from 8th-grade curriculum. The reason is more than a little ironic.

Mississippi’s Biloxi School District received complaints about the language in “To Kill A Mockingbird” — a classic novel dealing with racism in the American south — and then pulled the book from its 8th-grade English Language Arts curriculum last week, the Sun Herald reported.

What were the complaints about “To Kill a Mockingbird”?

  • “There is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable, and we can teach the same lesson with other books,” Kenny Holloway, vice president of the Biloxi School Board, told the paper. “It’s still in our library. But they’re going to use another book in the 8th-grade course.”
  • The Sun Herald reported that it got an email from a concerned reader who said the ruling happened “mid-lesson plan, the students will not be allowed to finish the reading of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ …. due to the use of the ‘N’ word.”

What else did the concerned reader say?

  • “I think it is one of the most disturbing examples of censorship I have ever heard, in that the themes in the story humanize all people regardless of their social status, education level, intellect, and of course, race,” the reader said to the paper. “It would be difficult to find a time when it was more relevant than in days like these.”

What is “To Kill a Mockingbird” about?

  • The 1960 novel by Harper Lee — which won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction the following year and was turned into an Oscar-winning movie in 1962 — is about a southern lawyer who defends a black man against a trumped-up rape charge and teaches his children about racial prejudice.

Who made the decision to pull the novel?

  • The school board told the Sun Herald it was an administrative and department decision, and the board didn’t vote on it.
  • Superintendent Arthur McMillan told the paper in a statement that “there are many resources and materials that are available to teach state academic standards to our students. These resources may change periodically. We always strive to do what is best for our students and staff to continue to perform at the highest level.”

What does Common Core have to say about “To Kill a Mockingbird”?

  • It’s listed on the curriculum as a core text for 8th grade ELA, the Common Core state standards for English Language Arts, the Sun Herald said.

What does the American Library Association have to say about the novel?

  • The organization lists “To Kill A Mockingbird” as among the most banned or challenged books.

Former Vanderbilt professor Carol Swain — an outspoken conservative as well as a critic of the left’s hold on public education — weighed in on the issue on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”:

This writer’s perspective

It’s ironic that the Biloxi School District pulled “To Kill a Mockingbird” over concerns that it “makes people uncomfortable.” The subject is supposed to make one feel uncomfortable — and the acts of reading and discussing the novel can, in fact, help do away with racism.

Instead, students will be protected from eyeballing language they’ve no doubt heard or read already and subsequently miss the opportunity to become conversant not only with a classic of American literature but more importantly about the subjects of race and racism for the betterment of society.

To what extent will the perpetually offended hold sway in this area? What other language will be sanitized so that deeper meanings are rendered invisible? This circumstance is not dissimilar from college students and professors pushing to do away with free speech and expression that doesn’t align with their far-left viewpoints.

Such cowering political correctness and censorship must end — and Atticus Finch would no doubt argue that point.

President Trump Blasts Senate Republicans: ‘Not Getting The Job Done’

All the Republicans needed was the presidency…

Via Washington Times:

President Trump on Monday scolded Senate Republicans for “not getting the job done” and endorsed a push by ally Stephen K. Bannon to force out GOP leaders.

The president made the remarks ahead of a lunch meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, with whom Mr. Trump has had a strained relationship for months as his legislative agenda stalled.

“We are not getting the job done and I’m not going to blame myself,” Mr. Trump said at a Cabinet meeting. “I’ll be honest, they are not getting the job done.”

Mr. Trump defended Mr. Bannon, a Breitbart news executive and the president’s former White House political director, who launched a campaign to unseat establishment GOP lawmakers and force out Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican.

“He’s a friend of mine and he’s very committed to getting things passed,” Mr. Trump said. “I can understand where Steve Bannon is coming from. … I’m not happy about [the stalled agenda] and a lot of people are not happy about it.”
