    It’s true Forrest was a slave trader and Klansman, but he was also one of the most brilliant generals of the Civil War.

    The point here is that he had completely changed his views and actually worked hard to bring the races together! Not that he SHOULD be honored for being a great general for the Confederacy.

    Lol! Possibly.

    They (the ChiComs) have never had a closer military and economic alliance with the Russians than they do now.

    In fact, the two have been staging massive joint war games since 2005, claiming it’s about combating terrorism. Meanwhile, the type and scale of the exercises clearly indicate they’re preparing for war with us and our various allies.

    I have lots on this on my FR Home page.

    Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991?
    American Thinker ^ | January 16, 2010 | Jason McNew

    In a [] 1984 book [New Lies for Old], ex-KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn predicted the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc and claimed that it would be a strategic deception. ..."

    "Golitsyn's argument was that beginning in about 1960, the Soviet Union embarked on a strategy of massive long-range strategic deception which would span several decades and result in the destruction of Western capitalism and the erection of a communist world government."

    "Golitsyn published his second book, The Perestroika Deception, after the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991. This book contained further analysis of the liberalization, in addition to previously classified memoranda submitted by Golitsyn to the CIA. The two books must be read together to get a complete picture of Golitsyn's thesis."

    (again you are welcome for my post)

    I agree it was a good idea, and a good post. For both I belatedly thank you.

    However, you know what the situation is between us regarding that US women's soccer team thread you posted a few weeks ago, where you made at least one really stupid excuse in defense of her actions, saying something like, "who knows why she's doing what she's doing?".

    BTW, I post threads like this often as fodder for jokes. To provide an opportunity for people to come up with humorous responses. To hopefully bring a few smiles.

    Anyway, getting back to the one good thing you've posted in practically all the time I've been familiar with you as member...

    "I love watching women's soccer," he said in the Oval Office. "They’re really talented." - President Trump

    And you seriously believe he meant it. That he wasn't simply doing the PC-correct thing, in, as president of the United States, showing public support for the US team, despite their being led by an anti-American, anti-flag POS. One you clearly have no problems with, and even attempted to defend on at least one of the women soccer threads you posted.

    You actually think that a guy like Trump genuinely enjoys watching women's soccer? I suppose it's possible, but I strongly doubt it. Because he's always making compliments and giving praise to things and people he obviously feels the opposite way about. It's just part of his "Art of the Deal" way of doing things.

    “It was a little nod to Kaepernick and everything that he’s standing for right now.

    Trump Jr. blasts Nike with photo of Soviet-style shoe design: 'More in line with their views'

    FoxNews.com ^ | July 3, 2019 | Sam Dorman | Fox News

    Donald Trump Jr. had a scathing critique of the athletic company Nike after it decided to pull a sneaker bearing a flag used during the American Revolution.

    Instead of using that older version of the American flag, Trump Jr. suggested Nike should unveil a communist-style shoe looking similar to the hammer-and-sickle logo of the former Soviet Union.

    "If the Betsy Ross Flag, the flag of the American Revolution, is too offensive for Nike to commemorate The 4th of July maybe Nike should go with this... seems to be more in line with their views," Trump Jr. tweeted on Wednesday.

    His attack came as Nike faced mounting criticism over its decision to halt the release of a shoe that had the Betsy Ross flag because it could "unintentionally offend" people.

    "Huey Percy Newton (February 17, 1942 – August 22, 1989) was an African-American political activist and revolutionary who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. He continued to pursue an education, eventually earning a Ph.D. in social philosophy.[1][2] In 1989 he was shot and killed in Oakland, California. ..."

    "As a student at Merritt College in Oakland, Newton became involved in politics in the Bay Area. He joined the Afro-American Association (AAA), became a prominent member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, Beta Tau chapter; and played a role in getting the first African-American history course adopted as part of the college's curriculum.

    He read the works of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Frantz Fanon, Malcolm X, Mao Zedong, Émile Durkheim, and Che Guevara.

    During his time at Merritt College, he met Bobby Seale, and the two organized the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in October 1966.[3]"

    "On May 1st, May Day [1969], the day of the gigantic Free Huey [Newton] rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo [the police].

    Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.

    The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."

    The sexy woman gif had nothing to do with anything. In fact, it surprised me that you, a huge women's soccer supporting male, would be interested in such things. Because women's soccer ain't exactly one of the sexiest women's sports around. In fact, far from it. So your odd fascination with women's soccer likely has nothing to do with that potential aspect of it. You apparently 'relate' to it in some other strange way.

But far more frequently, as many here I'm sure know, I post threads on real cars: vintage classics, old-school customs, dragsters, American muscle cars, famous TV and movie cars, etc. Stuff I doubt you have any interest at all in.

    Gohmert: Mueller “Covering” Involvement In Clinton-Uranium Deal While Trying To Have A “Coup” Against Trump

    Posted By Ian Schwartz
    June 9, 2018

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Saturday special counsel Robert Mueller is trying to cover up his involvement with the Uranium One deal that benefited the Clintons while “trying to have a coup against the president.”

    REP. LOUIE GOHMERT (R-TX): Robert Mueller has done more damage during his 12 years as FBI director than any other — probably all directors put together...

    He has wasted money right and left.

    Amazingly, he’s hired people like [Andrew] Weissmann that worked with him and [Rod] Rosenstein in investigating the Russian illegal efforts to obtain our uranium which they quashed information in order to allow the sale to go through so that Hillary could get the $145 million for her foundation.

    So it is really outrageous. He’s covering for himself at the same time he’s trying to have a coup against the president.

    Andrew Weissmann

    Andrew Weissmann headed the Obama administration’s Department of Justice Criminal Fraud Section. Weissman was knowledgeable of Deputy Assistant Attorney General Bruce Ohr’s collusion with Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson and did not report the illegal activity to his superiors as departmental regulations require.[1] Weissman is now lead prosecutor in the Mueller investigation.[2] Weissmann is suspected in illegal leaks from the Mueller probe.[3]

    Weissmann donated $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008, $2,000 to the DNC in 2006 and at least $2,300 to the Clinton campaign in 2007. He was at Hillary Clinton headquarters on election night and is part of the anti-Trump Resistance.

    Uranium One

    Main article: Uranium One bribery scandal

    Vadim Mikerin, director of Tenex, plea agreement shows that the Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section was then run by Andrew Weissmann.

    The Justice Department instructs prosecutors that when Congress has given a federal offense its own conspiracy provision with a heightened punishment (as it has for money laundering, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and other serious crimes), they may not charge a section 371 conspiracy. Section 371 is for less serious conspiracy cases. Using it for money laundering — which caps the sentence below Congress’s intent for that behavior — subverts federal law and signals to the court that the prosecutor does not regard the offense as major.

    Yet, that is exactly what Rod Rosenstein’s office did, in a plea agreement his prosecutors co-signed with attorneys from the Justice Department’s Fraud Section. (See in The Hill’s report, the third document embedded at the bottom, titled “Mikerin Plea Deal.”) No RICO, no extortion, no fraud — and the plea agreement does not mention any of the extortions in 2009 and 2010, before Committee on Foreign Investment in the US approved Rosatom’s acquisition of Uranium One. Mikerin just plead guilty to a nominal “money laundering” conspiracy charge, insulating him from a longer sentence. Thus, he got a term of only four years’ for a major national security crime.

    Uranium One deal

    Main article: Uranium One bribery scandal

    The team of Mueller and [Rod] Rosenstein essentially allowed Russian oligarchs to extort millions from American energy companies and consumers, and quietly swept it under the rug while the Clinton Foundation walked away with $150 million for brokering the Uranium One deal between Clinton donors and Russian oligarchs who were under DOJ/FBI investigation at the time.[39]

    Vadim Mikerin was a Director of the Pan American Department of Tenex (Techsnabexport) from about 2004 through about 2010, and was the President of Tenam (its American distribution arm) from about October 2010 through about October 2014. Tenex and Tenam are subsidiaries of the Russian nuclear giant, Rosatom. Mikerin's bosses are Russian oligarchs connected to Vladimir Putin. Tenam attempted to bring common accepted business practices in Russia to the United States - kickbacks for the award of contracts.[40] Tenam serviced 19 contracts, directly and indirectly, with 12 American energy companies. The contracts were for the transport of Russian uranium from dismantled nuclear bombs to burn in American nuclear power plants under the "Megatons to Megawatts" program. Since the 1990s until sanctions the program is said to have generated about 10% of all electricity in the United States.

    Between 2004 and October 2014, Mikerin conspired with others to transmit funds from Maryland and elsewhere in the United States to offshore shell company bank accounts for the purpose of promoting a corrupt payment scheme that violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

    Clinton Foundation pay-to-play

    Between 2008 and 2010, Uranium One and Former Ur-Asia investors donated $8.65 million to the Clinton Foundation.

    After Russia took control of the Uranium, the Podesta Group received $180,000 to lobby for Uranium One during the same period that the Clinton Foundation was receiving millions from U1 interests, and after Russia took majority ownership in the “20 percent” deal (source – you have to add up the years).[41][42] The uranium company states on its web site it is a “wholly owned subsidiary” of RUSANO, the Russian State Corporation for Nuclear Energy, a Rosatom entity.

    Tony Podesta's lobbying firm, the Podesta Group, represented the Russian-owned company Uranium One during former President Barack Obama's administration and did not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, The Daily Caller News Foundation determined.[43] Tony Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign manager.

    The Podesta Group lobbied on behalf of Uranium One for part of 2012 and in 2014 and 2015, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The Podesta Group was not listed as a lobbyist for Uranium One during its sale to ROSATOM in 2010. The Podesta Group did not file under FARA during any of the years when it lobbied both Congress and the executive branch.

    Bill Clinton listed Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and a key Rosatom board member as one of 15 Russians he wanted to meet with. Rosatom is the parent company of Tenex, then under investigation by FBI Dir. Robert Mueller for money-laundering and extortion of American energy companies. Processing of Rosatom's request to purchase Uranium One was in the works by Hillary's State Dept. at the time.[44] Carter Page is said to have met Dvorkovich about this time as well.[45] Bill Clinton met with Vladimir Putin and Medvedev during the excursion to Moscow, where he received $500,000 from the bank financing the Rosatom-Uranium One purchase. Putin personally thanked Clinton for speaking.[46]

    Mueller approved sale

    FBI Director Robert Mueller's investigation of the Russian uranium giant Rosatom was centered in Maryland, Tenam's home base. The U.S. attorney in Maryland was Obama appointee Rod Rosenstein.

    The investigation was an intelligence probe into Rosatom officials. The investigation obtained an eyewitness, William Campbell, known as Confidential Source-1 (CS-1) in court documents, recordings, and emails. The evidence indicates Rosatom oligarchs sent millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation to buy access during Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's tenure on the Committee on Foreign Investment of the United States (CFIUS). CFIUS is the government body that provided the approval of the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom.[47][48]

    The investigation could prove, through its confidential informant, kickbacks paid in cash and foreign wire transfers.[49]

    Rosenstein and Weissmann whitewash charges

    Mikerin's arrest was scheduled for early summer 2010, but later in August the decision was overturned by Rod Rosenstein and Adam Aik. The appeal, signed by Rosenstein and Aik, urged Judge William Connelly to cancel Mikerin's arrest order. In a statement to the press Rosenstein's office commented, "This is a sealed document, I'm not sure how it found its way into the proceedings," in an attempt to object to the defense discussing the motion publicly. Defense attorney Dan Hurson remarked "In my 40 years [of legal practice] I haven't seen anything like that."[50] On October 17, 2017 The Hill reported that

    the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

    Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

    They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton's charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

    The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.

    Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions... Attorney General Eric Holder was among the Obama administration officials joining Hillary Clinton on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States at the time the Uranium One deal was approved. Multiple current and former government officials told The Hill they did not know whether the FBI or DOJ ever alerted committee members to the criminal activity they uncovered.[51]

    The New York Post reported on the Obama FBI and DOJ cover up of Russian crimes.[52][53] Attn. Gen. Loretta Lynch blocked Campbell, the FBI informant, from testifying to Congress about his knowledge that the Russian's wanted access to Bill and Hillary Clinton to influence the decision on the purchase of Uranium One.[54] Newsweek reported
    Before the [Uranium One] deal was brokered in 2009, the FBI under Robert Mueller—who is now special counsel in the Russia investigation into potential collusion with the Trump campaign—had begun an investigation into corruption and extortion by senior managers of a company owned by the Russian government’s nuclear company, Rosatom. According to court filings revealed by The Hill Tuesday, in 2009 the FBI found enough evidence to suggest Vadim Mikerin, who headed the Rosatom subsidiary Tenex, was corrupt and high-level officials at Rosatom knew about his bribery scheme. In 2014, he pled guilty in a U.S. court case to orchestrating more than $2 million in bribe payments through shadowy accounts in Cyprus, Latvia, and Switzerland.[55]

    The Justice Department instructs prosecutors that when Congress has given a federal offense its own conspiracy provision with a heightened punishment (as it has for money laundering, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and other serious crimes), they may not charge a section 371 conspiracy. Section 371 is for less serious conspiracy cases. Using it for money laundering — which caps the sentence below Congress's intent for that behavior — subverts federal law and signals to the court that the prosecutor does not regard the offense as major.

    Yet, that is exactly what Rosenstein and Andrew Weissmann did in a plea agreement with Mikerin. (See in The Hill’s report, the third document embedded at the bottom, titled “Mikerin Plea Deal.”) No RICO, no extortion, no fraud — and the plea agreement does not mention any of the extortions in 2009 and 2010, before CFIUS approved Rosatom's acquisition of Uranium One. Mikerin just plead guilty to a nominal “money laundering” conspiracy charge, insulating him from a longer sentence. Thus, he got a term of only four years’ for a major national security crime.[56]
