Outlets Retract Stories After Realizing Report Actually Cites How Many Children The Obama Administration Detained

Can’t have it reflect badly on the tan suit.

Via Daily Caller:

Multiple outlets deleted entire stories Tuesday after falsely reporting the number of children in migrant-related U.S. custody.

Outlets including Reuters, Agence France-Presse (AFP), NPR and Aljazeera jumped on a report from the United Nations, writing Monday that the country has the world’s highest rate of detained children. The outlets reported that there are currently more than 100,000 children in immigration-related custody, which violates international law.

Hong Kong Protesters Make Daring Rope Escape From Besieged University, Others Escape Through The Sewers

Via Daily Mail:

Students under siege at a Hong Kong university are trying to escape through the sewers amid fears that police will storm the campus and open fire, causing a Tiananmen Square-style massacre.

Dozens of activists at Hong Kong Polytechnic University wrapped their knees and arms in plastic on Tuesday as they prepared to try and crawl to freedom through a perilous maze of underground tunnels.

There are thought to be between 100 and 200 students left on campus, locked into the third day of a violent standoff with police who are trying to get inside and break up the pro-democracy demonstration.

Around 600 people surrendered overnight Monday, 200 of whom were children who were questioned and released, alongside 400 adults who were arrested and now face 10 years in jail accused of rioting.

Speaking Tuesday morning, city chief executive Carrie Lam said the only option for the remaining demonstrators was to lay down their weapons, surrender and face the legal consequences.

While Hong Kong police chiefs refused to say Tuesday what their next steps will be, commanders have previously said they are willing to resort to using live ammunition if the situation becomes ‘uncontrollable’.

That has led to fears of a repeat of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, when peaceful pro-democracy student protesters were shot dead by the Chinese army.

Clinton Foundation Reports $16.8 Million Loss in 2018, Almost $33 Million Since Hillary Lost

Funny, after she was out of power, no one was donating. Almost though they thought their donations would buy power through her.

Via Free Beacon:

The Clinton Foundation reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records, marking the second consecutive year of losses since Hillary Clinton’s humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump in 2016.

The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions, a record low for the alleged “charity.” That figure was well short of the foundation’s total expenses for the year—$47.5 million— resulting in a net loss of $16.8 million.

The previous year, the Clinton Foundation reported a net loss of $16.1 million. In total, the organization has lost a staggering $32.9 million since Hillary Clinton’s lifelong quest for the presidency crumbled to dust in November 2016.

Shockingly, the foundation’s revenues have plummeted compared to the massive figures reported during Hillary’s tenure as secretary of state (2009 to 2013), and during her campaign as the Democratic Party’s essentially unchallenged presidential nominee in 2016.

DOJ Outlines Slew Of Strzok ‘Security Violations,’ Says Wife Learned Of Affair Through Unsecured Phone

He forced them to out all his issues.

Via Fox News:

The Department of Justice released documents Monday outlining a slew of “security violations” and flagrantly “unprofessional conduct” by anti-Trump ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok — including his alleged practice of keeping sensitive FBI documents on his unsecured personal electronic devices, even as his wife gained access to his cellphone and discovered evidence that he was having an affair with former FBI attorney Lisa Page.

The DOJ was seeking to dismiss Strzok’s lawsuit claiming he was unfairly fired and deserves to be reinstated as chief of the counterespionage division at the FBI. In its filing, the DOJ included an August 2018 letter to Strzok from the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which said in part that Strzok had engaged in a “dereliction of supervisory responsibility” by failing to investigate the potentially classified Hillary Clinton emails that had turned up on an unsecured laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner as the 2016 election approached.

The situation became so dire, OPR said, that a case agent in New York told federal prosecutors there that he was “scared” and “paranoid” that “somebody was not acting appropriately” and that “somebody was trying to bury this.”

Schiff Accidentally Exposes More Lies About Not Knowing The Whistleblower

But Vindman had testified previously he didn’t know who the whistleblower was. So why was he not naming the “intelligence community” person?

Schiff helpfully exposed that it was because the person was the whistleblower.

So it’s pretty clear they both knew who the whistleblower was and Vindman may have falsely claimed otherwise.

British Labor Party: No One Needs To Be A Billionaire…

Via Reuters:

LONDON, Nov 18 (Reuters) – Britain’s opposition Labour Party will on Tuesday take aim at “obscene” billionaires, pledging a radical redistribution of wealth to cut the power of the super rich who it says bankroll Prime Minister Boris Johnson in return for tax breaks.

The two main political parties are showcasing starkly different visions for the world’s fifth largest economy ahead of the Dec. 12 election. The Conservatives are promising to deliver Brexit while Labour says it wants to be the most radical socialist government in British history.

Labour said almost a third of Britain’s 151 billionaires have donated more than 50 million pounds ($64.8 million) to the Conservatives since 2005 in return for tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations worth 100 billion pounds.

John McDonnell, the party’s finance minister-in-waiting, will say in a speech he wants to “rewrite the rules of our economy”, casting the election as a chance to overthrow a system where billionaires can buy access to power.

“No one needs or deserves to have that much money, it is obscene,” McDonnell will say, according to excepts of his speech. “It is also obscene that these billionaires are buying access and tax breaks to Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party.”

Bloomberg May Enter Race Formally Soon…

Go away.

Via CBS:

Two apologies in one week, including saying he was wrong for supporting the NYPD’s controversial stop-and-risk policy, were just precursors to former Mayor Michael Bloomberg‘s entry into the presidential race, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer learned Monday.

It seems like Bloomberg really is ready to throw his hat into the presidential ring. Several sources close to the former mayor said a formal announcement could come in a matter of days.

Bradley Tusk, a Bloomberg adviser who ran some of his mayoral campaigns, said this time is not like all the other times the self made billionaire flirted with running.

“They’ve always before been intellectual exercises,” Tusk said. “But in terms of tangible acts like filing for the ballot, taking out $100 million in digital ads already, going out and sort of dealing with public positions that you might want to clarify your views on, none of that’s happened in the previous times.”

Prince Andrew’s Efforts To Put Epstein Behind Him Fail…

Via AP:

Prince Andrew’s effort to put the Jeffrey Epstein scandal behind him may have instead done him irreparable harm.

While aides are trying to put the best face on his widely criticized interview with the BBC, royal watchers are asking whether he can survive the public relations disaster and remain a working member of the royal family.

Full Coverage: Jeffrey Epstein
The question facing Queen Elizabeth II and her advisers is how to protect the historic institution of the monarchy from the taint of a 21st-century sex-and-trafficking scandal and the repeated missteps of a prince who has been a magnet for bad publicity as he struggles to find a national role for himself.

“Prince Andrew, I think, really has to stay out of the limelight for the moment because there really, I think, is no coming back from the damage that was done … at least, not in the near future,” Kate Williams, a royal historian and professor at Reading University, told ITV News.

Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, tried to end years of speculation about his role in the Epstein scandal by granting a no-holds barred interview to Emily Maitlis, the respected presenter of the BBC’s Newsnight program. But the strategy backfired when the prince failed to show empathy for the young women who were exploited by Epstein even as he defended his friendship with the American financier who was a convicted sex offender.

Epstein died Aug. 10 in a New York prison while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. His death has been ruled a suicide by the city’s medical examiner.

Maitlis, writing Monday in the Times of London, said planning for the interview began after Epstein’s death. Andrew’s management team knew they had a problem with the prince’s well-documented ties to Epstein and that previous written statements by the prince denying any involvement by the prince in Epstein’s crimes “perhaps lacked the conviction of a human voice behind them,″ she said.

Beijing Begins Rounding Up Hong Kong Protesters At Campus…

Via AP:

A small band of anti-government protesters, their numbers diminished by surrenders and failed escape attempts, remained holed up at a Hong Kong university early Wednesday as they braced for the endgame in a police siege of the campus.

Full Coverage: Hong Kong
Police were waiting them out after 10 days of some of the most intense protests the city has seen in more than five months of often-violent unrest gripping the semi-autonomous Chinese city. Since the siege began Sunday, more than 1,000 people were arrested and hundreds of injured treated at hospitals, authorities said.

The government has stood firm, rejecting most of the protesters’ demands. The demonstrators shut down major roads and trains during rush hour every day last week as they turned several university campuses into fortresses and blocked a major road tunnel, which remained closed Tuesday.

Even as the latest violence wound down, a fundamental divide suggests the protests are far from over.

In Beijing, the National People’s Congress criticized Hong Kong’s high court for striking down a ban on wearing face masks at the protests, in a decree that has potentially ominous implications for the city’s vaunted rule of law and independent judiciary. China’s Communist leaders have taken a tough line on the protests and said that restoring order is the highest priority.

Meanwhile, pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong was barred from going on a European speaking tour, after a court refused to change his bail conditions to let him travel outside Hong Kong.

Protesters have left all the universities except Hong Kong Polytechnic, where hundreds had barricaded themselves and fought back police barrages of tear gas and water cannons with gasoline bombs, some launched from rooftops by catapult, and bows and arrows.

Epstein Guards Arrested, Another Alleged Epstein Victim Comes Forward

Do they have any information to offer?

Via Daily Mail:

Two correctional officers who were responsible for guarding Jeffrey Epstein when he killed himself in his New York jail cell have been arrested.

The two federal Bureau of Prisons employees were taken into custody early Tuesday, sources told the New York Times.

They are expected to be charged in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan later on Tuesday over their alleged failure to check on the millionaire pedophile in his cell.

The officers on Epstein’s unit at the federal jail are suspected of failing to check on him every half-hour, as required, and of fabricating log entries to claim they had.

The pending charges are the first in connection with the 66-year-old’s death after he took his own life in August at the Metropolitan Correctional Center while awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing teenage girls.

Turkish President Erdogan: ‘Our God Commands Us To Be Violent To The Kuffar”

So Islam isn’t a ‘religion of peace?’

Via INN:

On October 25, a leader of a NATO member nation openly incited violence against non-Muslims.

On that day, Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended the Friday prayers at the Great Çamlıca Mosque in Istanbul. He was accompanied by Istanbul’s governor Ali Yerlikaya, mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu, Istanbul’s chief of police Mustafa Çalışkan and the head of the Istanbul branch of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Bayram Şenocak.

After the prayers, the hafiz of the mosque recited the Koranic Verse Al-Fath, which means “victory, triumph, conquest” in English. Then Erdogan took the microphone, reciting a part of the verse in Arabic and then in Turkish. He told the congregants:

“Our God commands us to be violent towards the kuffar (infidels). Who are we? The ummah [nation] of Mohammed. So [God] also commands us to be merciful to each other. So we will be merciful to each other. And we will be violent to the kuffar. Like in Syria.”

Erdogan then referred to another Koranic verse, As-Saff-13, in Arabic:

“Inshallah, God has promised us in Syria: ‘Nasrun minallahi ve fethun karib ve beşşiril mu’minin.’ [‘Victory from Allah and an imminent conquest; and give good tidings to the believers’]. We see it is happening right now. With the permission of Allah, we will see it even more… I will meet some presidents of foreign countries at the Dolmabahce Palace today. I ask for your permission now to go there.”

The congregants then cheered Erdogan on, shouting “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the greatest).
