Americans waking up to check Twitter this morning were greeted with the trending hashtag “#ClintonBodyCount.” This hashtag is referencing a long-running theory that the Clintons have been responsible for multiple murders to keep their corruption secret. But the re-emergence of the trending hashtag has, of course, been blamed on “Russian bots.”
[...] The elitists are currently trying to spin this into some kind of Russian conspiracy. It goes something like this: Russian President Vladimir Putin was so incensed by the knockout testimony given by former special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday that he cranked up the output of his “troll farms” and swamped Twitter with the hashtag as a distraction, according to RT...
One of those characters is a 32-year-old model named Nadia Marcinko. Marcinko, who was once described in court documents as Epstein's "in-house sex slave" was ferried out of Slovakia on Epstein's private jet when she was just 15, and lived with the billionaire for years after, Wired reports.
Though her history of flying with Epstein is harder to pin down due to Epstein's record-keeping practices (he only recorded the first names of underage girls in flight logs, if at all), but it's become clear that during her first decade in the country, from roughly 2000 to the beginning of Epstein's prison sentence, she frequently flew between Epstein's properties in New York, Palm Beach, Monterey, Columbus, Ohio and the Azores. A pilot who once worked for Epstein testified that she had flown with him hundreds of times.
Monica Crowley was hired to serve as Trump’s assistant Treasury secretary for public affairs... CNN reports that Crowley, formerly a syndicated radio host, columnist, and Fox News contributor, has a long history of spreading conspiracy theories suggesting that Barack Obama was secretly a Muslim who took orders from terrorist organizations... Three years later, in June 2013, Crowley wrote on her blog that “the Muslim Brotherhood is a sworn enemy of the United States,” and “in Obama, they have found an ally. What does that say about Obama? I’m sure you can figure that one out. What it says about America's national security is that it looks increasingly like it’s being dictated BY that sworn enemy.”
This awful attempt at a smear campaign by Vanity Fair will only backfire and make us like her that much more.
Before leaving, lawmakers voted to pass a budget deal — which includes a two-year extension of the debt limit — and to grant temporary protected status for Venezuelan migrants, making them the last votes for the summer. The House isn't scheduled to be back in session until Sept. 9.
Authorities are pretty reserved right now about the allegations. The press statement from the 1st Marine Division simple describes this as “involvement in various illegal activities ranging from human smuggling to drug-related offenses.” Authorities did mention this, however: “Information gained from a previous human smuggling investigation precipitated the arrests.”
The suspects were arrested, but haven’t been charged. They belong to the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, Motz said. She said their ranks ranged from E-2 (private first class) to E-4 (corporal). The 1st Marine Division also said that eight other Marines were taken for questioning about drug-related offenses. These are unrelated to the earlier case, said Motz.
On July 22nd, 20-year-old Jessica Rumpel provided The Post Millennial with evidence of explosive allegations of the sexual interference she experienced as a young teen at the hands of Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv. In the aftermath of Rumpel’s bravery, two new victims have come forward... Twenty-year-old Ashley Smith of Ontario, whose name is being altered due to trauma and for the protection of her work and family, says she was victimized when, like Rumpel, she was a teen. Ashley was just 14...
Yaniv also admits to having a “crush” on another girl, aged 16, who lives disturbingly close to them.. According to Louise Nussac, Yaniv often told people he and this 16-year-old were dating. “It was a lie and a creepy one as [name redacted] had no idea [Yaniv] was pretending to be dating her”... To other Yaniv victims, of which Smith asserts she knows of many, Smith says “I know it is scary to put your name out there, to come forth and share and experience that now seems embarrassing but you are not alone. We believe you.”
Florida Sen.

Amazon's home security company Ring has enlisted local police departments around the country to advertise its surveillance cameras in exchange for free Ring products and a “portal” that allows police to request footage from these cameras... In order to partner with Ring, police departments must also assign officers to Ring-specific roles that include a press coordinator, a social media manager, and a community relations coordinator.
For every Lakeland resident that downloads Neighbors as a result of the partnership, the documents show, the Lakeland Police Department gets credit toward more free Ring cameras for residents... The agreement gives the Lakeland Police Department access to Ring’s “Law Enforcement Neighborhood Portal.” This portal is an interactive map that shows police all of the active Ring doorbell cameras in their town. The exact addresses of the doorbell cameras are hidden. Police can use the portal to directly interact with Ring doorbell camera owners and informally request footage for investigations, without a warrant...
L Brands Inc. said its board of directors has hired an outside law firm to conduct a review of financier Jeffrey Epstein’s role at the retail company. Mr. Epstein served for about two decades as the personal money manager for longtime CEO Leslie Wexner. Former executives said he also inserted himself into the business, buying a plane from the company for $10 million and trying to offer input on which women should be Victoria’s Secret models...
Although Mr. Epstein was Mr. Wexner’s personal money manager, “we do not believe he was ever employed by nor served as an authorized representative of the company,” an L Brands spokeswoman said. “Mr. Epstein’s crimes are abhorrent, and we applaud every effort to bring justice to those harmed.”
The Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday released the first installment of its five-part report on Russian in the 2016 election, revealing that the interference dated back at least five years. “The Russian government directed extensive activity, beginning in at least 2014 and carrying into at least 2017, against US election infrastructure at the state and local level,” the report said. But the committee also found no evidence that any votes were changed or voting machines manipulated.

... California and other states had vowed to enforce stricter Obama-era emissions standards, after President Donald Trump proposed rolling back the federal rules. Automakers had worried that court battles between state and federal governments could create years of uncertainty for manufacturers. “Ensuring that America’s vehicles are efficient, safe and affordable is a priority for us all,” Ford Motor Co (F.N), BMW AG (BMWG.DE), Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) and Honda Motor Co Ltd (7267.T) said in a joint statement. They said the accord could help maintain a nationwide set of fuel efficiency requirements... The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers representing major automakers including GM, VW and Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T), said the deal acknowledged the Obama rules are “not attainable and need to be adjusted”... Automakers credited Trump with reopening the requirements after the Obama administration in its final weeks had sought to lock them in through 2025. In White House meetings, they have urged Trump officials to reach a deal.
Tulsi Now Inc., the campaign committee for Ms. Gabbard, said Google suspended the campaign’s advertising account for six hours on June 27 and June 28, obstructing its ability to raise money and spread her message to potential voters.
After the first Democratic debate, Ms. Gabbard was briefly the most searched-for candidate on Google. Her campaign wanted to capitalize on the attention she was receiving by buying ads that would have placed its website at the top of search results for her name. The lawsuit also said the Gabbard campaign believed its emails were being placed in spam folders on Gmail at “a disproportionately high rate” when compared with emails from other Democratic candidates.
Former Walt Disney Company executive Michael Laney has been sentenced to 81 months in prison for four counts of first-degree sexual abuse involving a 7-year-old girl. According to WTKR, Laney, who is 73-years-old, "will have to register as a sex offender and pay a $4,000 fine." In 2017, the young girl told Washington state law enforcement that Laney abused her in 2009...
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) had tried to get consent Thursday to pass a House bill that requires the use of paper ballots and includes funding for the Election Assistance Commission. It passed the House 225-184 with one Republican voting for it. But McConnell objected, saying Schumer was trying to pass “partisan legislation.” “Clearly this request is not a serious effort to make a law. Clearly something so partisan that it only received one single solitary Republican vote in the House is not going to travel through the Senate by unanimous consent,” McConnell said.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) also asked for consent to pass legislation that would require candidates, campaign officials and their family members to notify the FBI of assistance offers from foreign governments. McConnell also objected to that bill.
Attorney General William Barr directed the Bureau of Prisons to schedule the executions of five inmates convicted of murder and other crimes. The executions have been scheduled for December 2019 and January 2020. The department also announced a new execution protocol, replacing the three-drug cocktail previously used in federal executions with the single drug, pentobarbital.
"Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people's representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President," Barr said in a statement. "Under Administrations of both parties, the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals, including these five murderers, each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding"... The Justice Department said that additional executions will be scheduled at a later date.
