Late stage socialism

In Venezuela, which used to be an oil-rich nation, socialism has transformed riches into shortages and tanks into crowd control devices.

About that Russian collusion again...

PJMediaSen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) says that so far, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump's campaign aides and Russian officials.

On Wednesday, Feinstein and other members of the committee were briefed at CIA headquarters about the investigation into Russian meddling.

Susan Rice needs to appear before Congress and explain herself.

If she refuses, she should be reminded that it is not a voluntary appearance.

Make her plead the 5th, and then refer her to a special counsel for prosecution. The DOJ clearly cannot be trusted.

Motive is easy

Of Arms and the LawAn FFL has sent me a notice alleged to come from H&K (in Germany) saying that it has ceased supplying the domestic US market as of May 1, owing to some general BS, and asking the FFL to respond to a survey giving his location and how many various types of H&K arms he has sold (period of the sales not specified). The response is to be mailed to H&K at Str. 1, 78727 Oberdorf aN. The FFL enclosed an image of the alleged notice.

It sounds like BS to me, although I cannot figure out a motive.

If I had to guess, and assuming it was genuine, I would guess that lawyers have been nosing around H&K and found a judge willing to compel information disclosure like that. That sort of data sounds exactly like what a crusading lawyer would ask for in order to get around the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

So the lawyer demands to know how many guns individual dealers are selling, and then will probably try to use a high number of evidence of negligent entrustment or something like it against the dealer.

The bit about not supplying the US market I have no idea.

Clinton staffer threatened IRS audit

Daily CallerHillary Clinton’s Department of State aides allegedly threatened a South Asian prime minister’s son with an IRS audit in an attempt to stop a Bangladesh government investigation of a close friend and donor of Clinton’s, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group learned.

A Bangladesh government commission was investigating multiple charges of financial mismanagement at Grameen Bank, beginning in May 2012. Muhammad Yunus, a major Clinton Foundation donor, served as managing director of the bank.

Remember when Obama joked about using the IRS to target his enemies?

Remember when Obama actually used the IRS to target his enemies?

Remember when Obama held the people responsible for the targeting accountable? No, I don't either.

Here, we have strong evidence that Hillary's staffers and aides at the State Department used threats of IRS audits against US residents to pressure foreign nations.

Thank god that corrupt bitch lost.
