97 Islamic terror attacks and plots in the U.S. since 9/11

Supreme Court and the travel ban:

“The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to President Trump’s travel ban on majority-Muslim countries Tuesday because it has been replaced by a new version, sending the controversy back to the starting block.

The ruling is a victory for the Trump administration, which had asked the court to drop the case after Trump signed a proclamation Sept. 24 that replaced the temporary travel ban on six nations with a new, indefinite ban affecting eight countries. That action made the court challenge moot, the justices ruled.

“We express no view on the merits,” the justices said in a one-page order.”

Dem sexual predator Weinstein’s name to be erased from shows he produced.  New Yorker weighs in with a longer article on Weinstein’s history of sexual assault, dodging accusations of rape, destroying reputations of a few women who tried to speak out.  It’s not easy reading, and it’s not for your kids. It’s disgusting how long this went on when everybody knew about it.  I find it very odd that they include the October 2016 release of a recording of Trump making a crude and disgusting statement about what he said women *let* you do when you’re rich and famous as part of the culture that made women feel safe speaking out.  I see that very differently.  Trump was a Democrat when he made that claim, a good friend of the Clintons.  And the tape was held back from the public for TEN YEARS.  Nobody thought it was important to release it until a few weeks before the election when Hilary’s campaign was hurting.  It wasn’t released to help women, but to hurt Hilary’s opposition, which was all that mattered to the press.  I believe the allegations now coming out, and I also believe that some of them are made in good faith- women hurt by Weinstein’s exploitation and abuse now feel a sense of relief and know they can speak up without destroying their careers.  But the media didn’t release this story to help women. A few resignations from the board isn’t enough. They knew.  Hollywood knew.  The press new.  We know that because the media has had the story for decades.  NBC has been sitting on tape of Weinstein admitting to groping a woman for months! Women went to the police decades ago, and Weinstein used a complicit media to plant stories destroying their reputations and prevented them from working in their field.   Ben Affleck, who has now come out saying he had no idea and we should do more to protect women is being contradicted by Rose McGowan, one of Weinstein’s victims.  She says she was raped by Weinstein,  tried to go public and paid a high price for it, and says Affleck told her personally, “I told him to stop doing that.” So he knew.

How open was this secret?  2013 Oscars, one of the ‘jokes’ was that those nominated for best supporting actress ‘no longer need to pretend to be attracted to Weinstein.’

The NY D.A. office also had copies of tape of Weinstein admitting he’d assaulted a woman, didn’t prosecute.  He not only admitted to it, he claimed it was just because he was used to doing stuff like that (claimed on tape) and that she should not embarrass him or destroy their friendship (ie, her job) over five minutes.  It’s highly disturbing to listen to that tape, and CY Vance *stopped* his investigation and shortly afterward,  Weinstein’s lawyer donated thousands of dollars to his campaign. I’m sure there is no connection at all.

Weinstein has been friends with the Obamas and Hilary Clinton for years- he’s a power donor.  It took Hilary five days to speak about the allegations.  Remember, it took her five minutes to blame the NRA for a heineous crime they had nothing to do with, but five days to speak up about crimes against women committed by her dear friend and moneybag source, and then *she* didn’t say anything. She had a spokesperson release a statement.  The Obamas took even longer.

Corey Feldman has been telling people for years that Hollywood empowers, protects, and rewards pedophiles in power who have access to child actors.  It’s not a secret. It’s not like nobody knows.  Terry Crews says the Weinstein allegations are giving him PTSD flashbacks, because he was groped in public by a powerful Hollywood figure, and he was afraid to fight back.   It’s a cesspool.  Note the causes Hollywood publicly supports, and how few of them protect women or children- Weinstein loved Planned Parenthood and donated lots of money, but not because he cared about women. It’s obvious he doesn’t.  PP has a long history of protecting predators, just like Hollywood.

Roger Goodell now says everybody should stand for the National Anthem  More here.  This has not worked well for the NFL.

Russia and the U.S. media– it’s been a long time now that the U.S. media is worse than PRAVDA.  We begin to see why.

James O’Keefe releases video of sting at NYT, a video editor says he took the job with the NYT *because* of his bias, and openly admits to Trump hatred. I realize this hatred is shared by the entire left and many alleged conservatives, but the media also claims not to choose sides (which is laughably and obviously to the awake, completely false).  This is going to be fun, because of Veritas Press approach of releasing videos of small fish and small revelations and watching the denials and explanations pile up, and then showing them for the lies they are by releasing larger and longer clips of larger fish and more troubling revelations.

    I always enjoy these posts. I’m sure they take you time to put together, but I get so much information from them.

      They do take some time, but on the other hand, it’s often time I’m spending anyway because I like browsing headlines and such.
