Wow. Representative Matt Gaetz delivered a thorough evisceration of Al Sharpton today that will long be remembered. Keep in mind that every Democrat candidate for President has kissed the ring of Sharpton in recent months. Oh, the backfire in this hearing was over-the-top. Chairman Nadler was so stressed out he couldn’t function.
The democrats on the House Judiciary Committee went absolutely bonkers and lost their minds as Gaetz continued to expose Sharpton’s history of bigotry and antisemitism. A whole new generation of younger viewers were treated to the history of Sharpton.
This is epic. Major Hat Tip DaveNyiii for the video:
But wait, LOL, it gets better. Representative Jim Jordan yielded his time to his colleage, giving Mr. Gaetz a second round with Al Sharpton. Watch:
Ed Buck is a major donor to the Democrat party. Buck’s list of close political associations extends from Adam Schiff (pictured below left) to Hillary Clinton (pictured below right). Two black males were previously killed in Mr. Buck’s apartment by drug overdoses. Last week the third overdose victim barely survived after fleeing the apartment and calling police for help. Tuesday Ed Buck was arrested.
LOS ANGELES – Prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house, with prosecutors calling him a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness.
Buck was charged with one count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting a 37-year-old man, who overdosed but survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.
That latest incident comes after two men were found dead in his Laurel Avenue apartment in West Hollywood. In both cases, African American men — Gemmel Moore, 26, and Timothy Dean, 55 — had overdosed on methamphetamine inside. After the first death in 2017, authorities said there was insufficient evidence to file charges.
“With this new evidence, I authorized the filing of criminal charges against Ed Buck,” Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said in a statement, adding that she is deeply concerned for those whose life circumstances make them vulnerable to predators.
Prosecutors said Buck lures his victims into his home, baiting them with drugs, money and shelter. (read more)
Oh, the modern hypocrisy is almost as funny as the historic event. Photographs have surfaced of Justin Trudeau in 2001 wearing “brownface” (apparently a less troublesome modification of ‘blackface’) during a school party when he was a teacher at the West Point Grey Academy. [*Update* Justin give press conference below]
The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened. The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.
Earlier this month, TIME obtained a copy of the yearbook, The View, with the photograph of Trudeau in brownface from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community. Adamson was not at the party, which was attended by school faculty, administrators and parents of students. He said that he first saw the photograph in July and felt it should be made public.
On Wednesday, Zita Astravas, the media relations lead of the Liberal Party of Canada, which Trudeau is the leader of, confirmed that the Prime Minister was in the photo. “It was a photo taken while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the school’s annual dinner which had a costume theme of ‘Arabian Nights.’
He attended with friends and colleagues dressed as a character from Aladdin,” said Astravas. Trudeau is planning on addressing the photograph to the media later this evening, according to the Astravas. The prime minister’s official director of communications did not return multiple calls.

Justin Trudeau responds while on the campaign trail (prompted, just hit play):
A man has driven a vehicle through the front doors of Trump Plaza New Rochelle in New Rochelle New York. There are injuries from people who were in/near the lobby of the building.
Details are sketchy, but according to one report: “Workers at Trump Plaza New Rochelle say after car plowed into lobby, male driver got out and took a seat on a sofa. Said nothing. Several injuries but none are life threatening.”

QUESTION: What did you think of the Democratic debate. It looks like they are just preoccupied with hating Trump they have lost touch with reality. You previously said that the Democrats could collapse as a party after 2020. Does that seem likely?
ANSWER: I know the press is spinning this that Trump will surely lose in 2020. Our models do not indicate that as yet. There remains the risk as we had forecast back in 1985 that the Democrats could cease to exist after 2020 and split at the very minimum. The other part of that forecast was that 2016 was the first opportunity for a possible third-party candidate to win. It appears that forecast was correctly made way back in 1985. That target was from the beginning of this 51.6-year Business Cycle 1985.65. It was the Pi target which was + 31 years = 2016.
The message from the Democratic debate was that they were going to raise your taxes substantially, triple your gasoline price to save the planet which would only mean people would lose their jobs if they cannot afford to get to work in many regions. They want open borders simply because Trump wanted a wall to stop the drug trade and it is already illegal for an employer to hire an illegal alien. If they do not have a Social Security number, they are not paying payroll taxes and thus compete with legitimate citizens so forget minimum wages.
The Democrats will take away your healthcare and we all know the problems of government healthcare – just look at the VA scandals. My healthcare doubled thanks to Obamacare. Then, of course, they want to outlaw guns. In China, they executed three men who killed 31 people at a train station with knives. It’s the crazy people – not the guns. Assault weapons are one thing. They are talking about the complete removal of guns and taking on the NRA.
This is a message of hate-inspired simply by the fact they hate Trump. There was no discussion of the economy. They want to open borders because Trump wanted a wall. Just look at Europe and the chaos of Merkel’s open borders which is the primary reason for the rising separatist movements. So open border means I should not have to go through TSA at airports – right! I can keep my shoes on?
The minorities they keep telling need the Democrats to ignore the fact that unemployment for both the Blacks and Hispanics in America is at record lows. We have Bernie swearing he will control every aspect of the economy and Elizabeth Warren being advised by the Communists from France – led by Thomas Piketty.
This is what I mean that they are so fixated on Trump, they simply take the opposite of any of his policies. That really makes no rational sense. They are dividing the party between liberal politics and the extreme left. It looks like the computer may be correct on that one as well. The Democratic Party may split. The party name would not be abandoned. They will keep that. But there is some great divide unfolding.
The chart presented above shows that on a combined Senate & House basis, they have been losing ground. When people are young, they are generally socialists until they graduate and begin to see the real world and have to pay taxes. The ones who cannot mature, live forever in their little bubble and blame everyone else for their failures.
If we look at the Presidential elections, the Democrats peaked with FDR and have been making lower and lower highs ever since. This is the basis of that forecast that the Democrats have been in a bear market. They have lost touch with the core of the people.
Ex-NFL football player Edawn Coughman, 31 of Buford Georgia owns several pizza and ice-cream restaurants. When police responded to a 911 call about a suspicious person and break-in they discovered Mr. Coughman had just staged a burglary and vandalism of his own business, including the spray painting of “Monkey”, “MAGA” and Swastikas on the walls.
GEORGIA – […] “It’s possible he was trying to stage this as a hate crime,” Pihera said. “We don’t know if he was trying to get attention for this. What we do know is, if that witness had not called us and if those officers had not responded as quickly as they did, we would probably be sitting here talking about a completely different crime in which Mr. Coughman would be trying to say he’s a victim.”
[…] Coughman was arrested and taken to Gwinnett County Jail, charged with false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate. He has since bonded out. Pihera said there is a possibility additional charges will be filed. (read more)

QUESTION: Dear Mr. Armstrong,
Thank you for your blog. It has taken the veil off my eyes.
As I understand, not only is the hypothesis that mankind can alter the Earth’s climate nonsense, it is also detrimental to the world’s economy. It misplaces important resources, and anti-CO2 regulations hinder growth and the betterment of mankind.
In Norway, where I write from, there is pure hysteria. Children are being brainwashed into fear. People are talking about “Norway’s climate policies” not being good enough, and such nonsense.
Although I understand that this helps governments grow stronger by allowing them to introduce new taxes and regulations, I also thought that the powers that be, the ones really calling the shots, prefer more economic growth and less regulation.
Why has not the climate hysteria been globally debunked yet? It wouldn’t take so long. Aren’t the financial and industrial powers that be powerful enough? Or do they also benefit from the anthropogenic climate hysteria? Could you please shed some light into this?
ANSWER: This has become the agenda of the left. They are using it to grab more power and justify class warfare. The media is on board. I asked someone I know in that political camp and he said: “Look, fear politics is best. You know that!”
My summation of dealing with governments most of my adult life, well, I have come away with a simple reality.
When I was young and naive, I believed that the government was really there to help. It soon became clear to me what really drives governments.
I can show with absolute proof, say 25 million people will die next month because of something. They will respond, perhaps you are wrong.
I have come to realize that politicians LOVE a crisis for that is when they can look impressive.
If I were to run for president and said, “Vote for me because I saved your job, home, and your life!”you would look at me and ask how I did such a thing? It is impossible to convince you that whatever I did saved everything that you had no idea was even in jeopardy.
It is far better to run for office with a crisis and then I can say, “Vote for me, I will go get the guy that caused you to lose your job, home, and your family!”
With every crisis, they form committees. Just look at the Russia nonsense. Even if they bought adds on Facebook, that will not win an election. If they released Hillary’s emails, then that was the truth. There was no allegation that anyone faked the emails. So they turned it into a crisis and have kept it going. There is nothing like a good crisis for politicians on both sides.
