Please help keep CLG's vital voice afloat, and know that we appreciate every contributor.

Trump administration to appeal ruling against 2020 census citizenship question

Trump administration to appeal ruling against 2020 census citizenship question | 17 Jan 2019 | The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a notice Thursday declaring it is appealing a federal judge's decision that the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census would be unlawful. The notice did not give any information on the substance of the administration's appeal, but the Justice Department had argued that Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross had the authority to add the question to the census and that in the past, the question had been included. Ross first announced in March that he would return the citizenship question to the census, saying it would better help the government enforce the Voting Rights Act.

Reddit User Claimed Inside Info 3 Weeks Ago About Yesterday's Attack on US Soldiers in Syria, Predicted False Flag

Reddit User Claimed Inside Info 3 Weeks Ago About Yesterday's Attack on US Soldiers in Syria, Predicted False Flag | 17 Jan 2019 | On December 19, President Donald Trump announced a complete withdrawal of American troops from Syria. This announcement was unexpected and extremely controversial. Ten days later a Reddit user "Lone_Traveller" posted on the "conspiracytheories" subreddit claiming to have insider information that the next few weeks would see an attack on American troops in Manbij. This surprise attack would allegedly kill multiple troops with the goal of blaming Assad and disrupting withdrawal of troops from Syria. The archived post: US Soldiers will be killed in Syria in the coming weeks. Hello Everyone, Not sure where else to post this. But the insider word in the intelligence community is that several US Soldiers in Syria will be killed in the coming days or weeks. A small operation in the Manbij area will include IEDs and sniper fire killing several US operators. The ultimate goal is to blame the operation on SAA soldiers from Assads forces. Thus creating public outcry and forcing the US to stay in the area...

Top Five Additives BANNED in Europe and Russia, but Approved by the FDA in U.S.

Top Five Additives BANNED in Europe and Russia, but Approved by the FDA in U.S. | 16 Jan 2019 | In America, there's basically only one industry that would prosper from everyone being healthy, and that's the organic food industry...The biggest source of revenue in America has to do with consumers getting sick from the food and staying sick from the medicine, meanwhile other developing countries try to help their citizens stay healthy, by banning known toxins and carcinogens from the food and medicine supply. Welcome to America, home of adulterated food and chronic sick care, where the corrupt FDA and the CDC purposely deregulate the poisons put in food that other countries' regulatory agencies, like the European Union, consciously filter out and ban.

An FBI agent's affidavit says 21-year-old Hasher Jallal Taheb of Cumming was arrested in a sting Wednesday after he traded his car for weapons. He's charged with attempting to damage or destroy a building owned by the U.S. using fire or an explosive. U.S. Attorney Byung J. 'BJay' Pak says Taheb planned to use an improvised explosive device and anti-tank rocket. The affidavit says Taheb planned to die in the attack.

Georgia man plotted attack on White House, authorities say --Authorities also said he planned to travel to the Islamic State territory but acknowledged he didn't have a passport. | 16 Jan 2019 | Federal authorities on Wednesday arrested a metro Atlanta man they said was plotting to attack the White House but instead got entangled with the FBI. Hasher Jallal Taheb, 21, of Cumming, was taken into custody in Gwinnett County while allegedly trying to exchange his vehicle for explosives. He later appeared in court in downtown Atlanta in the case brought by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. Authorities said Taheb was acting alone and they made no accusation that he had ties to any terrorist group. He was arrested after a tip from a resident who said the young man had been radicalized.

No SOTU till government reopens: Pelosi threatens to deplatform Trump

No SOTU till government reopens: Pelosi threatens to deplatform Trump | 17 Jan 2019 | House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is demanding President Donald Trump postpone his State of the Union address until after the government reopens, threatening to use her little-known power of invitation to deplatform the president. In a letter sent on Wednesday, Pelosi requested Trump reschedule his speech until they can pay the Secret Service -- part of the Department of Homeland Security, which has gone unfunded since the shutdown began 26 days ago. She used Trump's own Homeland Security secretary's words to twist the knife, quoting Kirstjen Nielsen's insistence that "the full resources of the Federal Government...be brought to bear" for the high-security event -- then finished the job by suggesting Trump submit the speech in writing.

FISA shocker: DOJ official warned Steele dossier was connected to Clinton, might be biased

FISA shocker: DOJ official warned Steele dossier was connected to Clinton, might be biased | 16 Jan 2019 | The then-No. 4 Department of Justice (DOJ) official, Bruce Ohr, briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele's Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative's work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton's campaign and might be biased. Ohr's briefings, in July and August 2016, included the deputy director of the FBI, a top lawyer for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a Justice official who later would become the top deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller. At the time, Ohr was the associate attorney general. Yet his warnings about political bias were pointedly omitted weeks later from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that the FBI obtained from a federal court, granting it permission to spy on whether the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia to hijack the 2016 presidential election.

House GOP blast Pelosi for suggesting State of the Union delay

House GOP blast Pelosi for suggesting State of the Union delay | 16 Jan 2019 | House GOP leaders on Wednesday blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over her call to delay President Trump's State of the Union address during the partial government shutdown, saying she should "keep her word" and asking "what is she afraid of hearing?" Republican leadership also suggested that Trump should come to the Capitol to deliver his annual update even if she decides to rescind the formal invitation. Although Pelosi originally invited Trump to give the speech on January 29, in a letter sent to Trump on Wednesday, Pelosi called for the address to the Joint Session of Congress to be pushed back or delivered in writing [?!?] instead.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez under fire from right-wing critics after saying she'll 'run train on the progressive agenda'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez under fire from right-wing critics after saying she'll 'run train on the progressive agenda' | 16 Jan 2019 | Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is under fire after saying she will 'run train on the progressive agenda', using a slang phrase many define as a group of men performing sexual acts on a woman in rapid succession. Ocasio-Cortez, 29, was talking to the Washington Post about how frequently she is covered by conservative media news outlets when she used the phrase. There are actually two definitions to 'run train' on Urban Dictionary, with the 'top definition' being 'to "gangbang" a girl with several friends'. The second definition reads: 'To call your friends to preform various unforgivable acts of a sexual nature on one female in rapid succession.'

AG pick Barr wants closer scrutiny of Silicon Valley 'behemoths'

AG pick Barr wants closer scrutiny of Silicon Valley 'behemoths' | 15 Jan 2019 | President Trump's pick to lead the Department of Justice, William Barr, suggested during his confirmation hearing on Tuesday that the agency should take a closer look at tech giants' dominant market power and handling of user data [and censoring any political articles and commentary contrary to the Deep State's agenda]. During an exchange with Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Barr said that he wanted to better understand the dynamic between Silicon Valley and the nation’s antitrust officials who have allowed tech companies to grow so big. Barr only said that he wanted to learn more about the DOJ's antitrust approach and did not indicate whether he would push for a tougher stance towards Silicon Valley if confirmed.

Police arrested the caravan organizer -- serving a warrant on the charge of rape. Authorities have confirmed the arrest of 26-year-old Juan Carlos Molina.

EU approval of glyphosate weed killer was based on 'plagiarized' Monsanto studies, report finds

EU approval of glyphosate weed killer was based on 'plagiarized' Monsanto studies, report finds | 15 Jan 2019 | EU regulators based a decision to relicense the controversial glyphosate-based Monsanto weed-killer on an assessment which was heavily plagiarized from agri-chemical industry reports, a cross party group of MEPs has revealed. The MEPs commissioned the investigation after the Guardian reported that Germany's Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) had copy-and-pasted tracts from Monsanto studies into its safety assessment for the weed killer. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) then based its recommendation that glyphosate was safe based on that very report...The study found that more than 50 percent of the chapters were plagiarized, including whole pages of text.

Federal judge rules against Trump administration's push for citizenship question on 2020 Census

Federal judge rules against Trump administration's push for citizenship question on 2020 Census | 15 Jan 2019 | A federal judge has ruled against the Trump administration's addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census, marking the first major ruling in a controversy that has pitted states and cities against top administration officials and is likely to come before the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Jesse M. Furman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York [appointed by President Barack Obama] ordered the administration Tuesday to stop its plans to add the question to the survey. Calling Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross's decision to add the question "arbitrary and capricious," he blasted Ross for "egregious" violations of the Administrative Procedure Act.

El Chapo Trial: Former Mexican President, Border Wall Opponent Peña Nieto Took $100 Million Bribe From Drug Cartel Kingpin, Witness Says | 15 Jan 2019 | The former president [terrorist] of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, took a $100 million bribe from Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the infamous crime lord known as El Chapo, according to a witness at Mr. Guzman's trial. The stunning testimony was delivered Tuesday in a New York courtroom by Alex Cifuentes Villa, a Colombian drug lord who worked closely with Mr. Guzmán from 2007 to 2013, when the kingpin was hiding from the law at a series of remote ranches in the Sierra Madre mountains. "Mr. Guzmán paid a bribe of $100 million to President Peña Nieto?" Jeffrey Lichtman, one of Mr. Guzmán's lawyers, asked Mr. Cifuentes during cross-examination. "Yes," Mr. Cifuentes said.

Another migrant caravan prepares to leave from Honduras

Another migrant caravan prepares to leave from Honduras | 14 Jan 2019 | Months after a migrant caravan sparked a fury of tweets from President Donald Trump and the eventual deployment of more than 5,000 active-duty troops to the southern border, another is forming in Honduras, this time against the backdrop of a partial government shutdown directly linked to Trump's border wall. "There's another major caravan forming right now in Honduras and so far, we're trying to break it up," Trump told reporters last week. "But so far, it's bigger than anything we've seen and a drone isn't going to stop it and a sensor isn't going to stop it, but you know what's going to stop it in its tracks? A nice, powerful wall," he added.

Was Timber Sycamore the Program That Created ISIS?

Was Timber Sycamore the Program That Created ISIS? | 11 Jan 2019 | ...Operation Timber Sycamore, a "secret" plan, was authorized by then US President Obama which allowed the CIA to arm terrorists in Syria. Timber Sycamore officially began in late 2012 or early 2013 and was similar to the other terrorist arming operations that the US had undertaken in places like Libya as well as a number of other countries in the previous decades...Timber Sycamore was essentially a joint plan between Riyadh and the CIA, as well as Turkey and other Gulf States that would see the bulk of funding for the operation coming from Saudi Arabia while the majority of arming and training of terrorists would come from the United States...Although Western and European media outlets would try to spin the operation as the training of "moderate rebels," subsequent reports revealed that these fighters were actually ISIS fighters. [Hence, I-CIA-SIS.]

The US Government Has Amassed Terabytes of Internal WikiLeaks Data

The US Government Has Amassed Terabytes of Internal WikiLeaks Data | 14 Jan 2019 | Late last year, the US government accidentally revealed that a sealed complaint had been filed against Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. Shortly before this was made public, the FBI reconfirmed its investigation of WikiLeaks was ongoing, and The Wall Street Journal reported that the US Department of Justice was optimistic that it would be able to extradite Assange...Through a series of search warrants, subpoenas, equipment seizures and cooperating witnesses, the US federal government has collected internal WikiLeaks data covering the majority of the organisation's period of operations, from 2009 at least through 2017...Publicly released and leaked documents from Assange and his legal team allege that several laptops and hard drives belonging to the organisation were intercepted by an intelligence agency during this time period.

FBI Started Counterintel Probe Against Trump After Comey Was Fired - Report

FBI Started Counterintel Probe Against Trump After Comey Was Fired - Report | 15 Jan 2019 | News broke Friday that after US President Donald Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey in May 2017, the agency opened a counterintelligence probe into the head of state. The unprecedented move has worrisome implications for the power of the Deep State. The revelation comes from former agency officials, who told the New York Times that Trump firing the FBI director was seen as a possible national security concern, given its ongoing investigation into alleged Russian collusion with Trump's election campaign the previous year, as well as alleged interference in that election, neither of which has a shred of evidence to support it.

Comey and his henchmen were 'dirty cops' and 'I NEVER worked for Russia': Furious Trump attacks FBI 'scoundrels' for investigating whether he was Putin's puppet

Comey and his henchmen were 'dirty cops' and 'I NEVER worked for Russia': Furious Trump attacks FBI 'scoundrels' for investigating whether he was Putin's puppet --Launched a furious attack on the FBI's leadership under and immediately after James Comey who he called a 'dirty cop' and accused of lying | 14 Jan 2019 | President Donald Trump denied Monday that he was ever a foreign agent of Russia as he turned his fire on the FBI after its bosses were revealed to have ordered a probe of whether he was working for Putin after he fired James Comey. Trump has been asked the question during a phone interview on Fox News on Saturday night and did not deny the claim directly. But Monday, as a backlash mounted, he denied the charge that the New York Times says sparked an FBI counterintelligence investigation in a lengthy discussion on the White House lawn as he waited to board Marine One to fly to New Orleans to address a farming group. 'I never worked for Russia, and you know that answer better than anybody,' he told a reporter as he left a snowy White House for Louisiana. 'Not only did never work for Russia, I think it's a disgrace that you even asked that question, because it's a whole big fat hoax.'

Federal judge freezes Trump's religious and moral exemptions to Obamacare contraception mandate

Federal judge freezes Trump's religious and moral exemptions to Obamacare contraception mandate | 14 Jan 2019 | A Pennsylvania district court judge on Monday blocked the Trump administration's exemptions from the federal birth control rules from taking effect across the U.S., less than 24 hours after a similar hold was placed in 13 states and the District of Columbia. The revised rules, which allow employers to opt out of a requirement that they offer health insurance that covers birth control at no cost to their employees, had been in effect in the rest of the U.S. for less than a day before the ruling was handed down. On Sunday, a California judge blocked them from going into effect in D.C. and 13 states...The decision to block the exemptions was issued Monday afternoon by Judge Wendy Beetlestone, an appointee of former President Barack Obama. The decision Sunday to block the rules from taking effect was issued by Judge Haywood Gilliam, also an Obama nominee.

It happened on New York Avenue in Huntington Station around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. The 16-year-old victim told police he was at the fast-food restaurant with friends when six of his classmates from Huntington High School entered and began staring at them menacingly.

French protesters want to set off bank run with withdrawals

French protesters want to set off bank run with withdrawals | 09 Jan 2019 | Activists from a French protest movement encouraged supporters Wednesday to set off a bank run by emptying their accounts, while the government urged citizens to express their discontent in a national debate instead of weekly demonstrations disrupting the streets of Paris. Activists from the yellow vest movement, which started with protests over fuel tax increases, recommended the massive cash withdrawals on social media. One protester, Maxime Nicolle called it the "tax collector's referendum." "We are going to get our bread back...You're making money with our dough, and we're fed up," Nicolle said in a video message. [That's the way to get it done!]

'Just fire him!': Ron Paul blasts Bolton, Pompeo for undermining Trump

'Just fire him!': Ron Paul blasts Bolton, Pompeo for undermining Trump 12 Jan 2019 | Former Congressman Ron Paul has come out swinging against neoconservative voices in President Trump's cabinet. John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, he said, should be punished for insubordination. President Trump's announcement last month that he would withdraw all US forces from Syria and the news that he was mulling a partial pullout from Afghanistan seemed to be the fulfilment of an often-repeated campaign promise..."I think what Pompeo and Bolton did was insubordinate," Ron Paul told RT later that day. "And I don't know why Trump puts up with it."

The government shutdown enters a record 22nd day as Trump, Democrats continue to battle over the border wall and 800,000 workers go without pay

The government shutdown enters a record 22nd day as Trump, Democrats continue to battle over the border wall and 800,000 workers go without pay | 12 Jan 2019 | The partial shutdown of the federal government officially became the longest of the modern budgeting era on Saturday, as it entered day 22 with no end in sight. By making it into the fourth week, the shutdown surpassed the 21-day funding lapse in 1995 and 1996 as the longest since the modern budgeting system was implemented in 1974. Where the new bar will end up remains to be seen as President Donald Trump and Democrats appear to be nowhere close to resolving the standoff over money for the president's long-promised wall along the US-Mexico border, despite constant discussions and posturing.

Republican lawmakers say Trump isn't backing down on the longest shutdown, instead pointing finger at Democrats

Republican lawmakers say Trump isn't backing down on the longest shutdown, instead pointing finger at Democrats | 13 Jan 2019 | Top Republican lawmakers have doubled down on President Donald Trump's demands for a border wall and decision to enact a partial government shutdown until a deal is reached. The central issue in the record-breaking shutdown is Trump's demands for $5 billion for the construction of a wall along the southern border. The demand has caused congressional gridlock, which gave way to the longest shutdown in American history. Sen. Lindsey Graham said on "Fox News Sunday" that Trump is "not going to give in," because Democrats had not proposed any appropriate alternative deals.

Supreme Court says Justice Ginsburg's recovery is 'on track'

Supreme Court says Justice Ginsburg's recovery is 'on track' | 11 Jan 2019 | The Supreme Court says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recovery from cancer surgery is "on track" and no further treatment is required. But the 85-year-old justice will miss court arguments next week. Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg says that doctors for Ginsburg confirmed an initial evaluation that found no evidence of remaining cancer following surgery. The court's oldest justice had surgery three weeks ago to remove cancerous growths on her left lung.

Booker tries to shake doubts about pharmaceutical ties ahead of 2020

Booker tries to shake doubts about pharmaceutical ties ahead of 2020 | 13 Jan 2019 | Sen. Cory Booker (D-Deep State-N.J.) is trying to overcome doubts that he is too close to the pharmaceutical industry ahead of an expected presidential campaign. The progressive criticism of Booker reached a crescendo in early 2017 when he voted against a budget amendment calling for importing drugs from abroad. The line of attack played into broader fears from progressives that Booker is not tough enough on corporations in general, including Wall Street. "Cory Booker and a Bunch of Democrats Prove Trump Right on Big Pharma," read a headline in HuffPost.

White House Sought Options to Strike Iran

White House Sought Options to Strike Iran --State and Pentagon officials were rattled by the request | 13 Jan 2019 | President Trump's National Security Council asked the Pentagon to provide the White House with military options to strike Iran last year, generating concern at the Pentagon and State Department, current and former U.S. officials said. The request, which hasn't been previously reported, came after militants fired three mortars into Baghdad's sprawling diplomatic quarter, home to the U.S. Embassy, on a warm night in early September. The shells - [allegedly] launched by a group aligned with Iran [ergo, not Iran itself] - landed in an open lot and harmed no one.

Deep State Doesn't Want to Expose Full Truth About 9/11 - Political Scientist

Deep State Doesn't Want to Expose Full Truth About 9/11 - Political Scientist | 13 Jan 2019 | A cybercrime group has released thousands of documents related to the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States. The group, which calls itself "The Dark Overlord", stole the data from private insurance companies, law firms and government agencies and demanded a ransom. Radio Sputnik discussed the publications with Dr Kevin Barrett, a political scientist and author.

Sputnik: Did any new information on the 9/11 terrorist attacks emerge from the cybercriminal group's release that you know of?

Dr Kevin Barrett: Well, it's not clear that there's anything extremely significant. The problem here is that we already know so much about 9/11. We know beyond any reasonable doubt that there were no actual human hijackers involved in diverting planes that day. We know that for a whole long list of reasons including, the fact that the US government was obliged under international law to provide the evidence against the people accused of committing this horrific crime and it never presented that evidence such as authenticated passenger lists, authenticated security videos -- any proof whatsoever that any of these 19 alleged hijackers were even on the planes; not only was none of that ever presented, but we know for a fact that there were no hijackings, because not one of the four planes ever squawked the hijack code -- which takes about two seconds to squawk.
