Democrats Laid a ‘Perjury Trap’ for Kavanaugh and Plan to Impeach Him If They Win the House in November

Law professor, Jonathan Turley, says that Democrats are laying a perjury trap for Judge Kavanaugh by asking detailed questions about inscriptions in his yearbook and drinking games from 35 years ago. If he is confirmed, Democrats plan to impeach him on the basis of contradictions in his testimony about sexual terms, such as “boofed”, in his yearbook. The scope of the subject matter has expanded to details going back decades, opening the door so that any question may be asked of a nominee now. Impeachment is usually in response to a violation that was committed while in office. If the Democrats do impeach Kavanaugh, it will put all judges at risk for impeachment every time there is a change in the party that holds the temporary majority. -GEG

Capitol Police Arrested Democrat Staffer Who Was Charged with Doxxing Three GOP Senators Last Week

Jackson Cosko, a Democrat congressional intern for US Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, was arrested on allegations of publishing the personal information of Republican Senators Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee, and Orrin Hatch. According to Capitol Police, the charges against Cosko include releasing restricted, personal information to the public, witness tampering, issuing threats in interstate communications, accessing a government computer without authorization, identity theft, second-degree burglary, and unlawful entry. -GEG

A Democrat congressional staffer has been arrested and charged with publishing the personal information of three GOP senators. The arrest vindicates Rep. Maxine Waters, but may be bad news for her colleague Sheila Jackson Lee.

Jackson A. Cosko, 27, was named by the Capitol Police on Wednesday as the suspect behind the Wikipedia edits to pages of Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), publishing their home addresses and phone numbers.

The doxx happened during last Thursday’s contentious session of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which heard the testimonies of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford, who accuses him of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago, when they were both in high school.

Initial suspicions fell on someone from the office of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California), but she rejected all accusations. In a statement the following day, Waters said she was “utterly disgusted by the spread of the completely false, absurd, and dangerous lies and conspiracy theories that are being pedaled (sic) by ultra-right wing pundits, outlets and websites.”

Cosko’s arrest clears Waters, but may implicate several other Democrat lawmakers. According to the web service Legistorm, Cosko’s most recent employment was at the office of Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-New Hampshire). However, a letter from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) dated September 10 identifies Cosko as one of her House staffers.

Prior to that, Cosko interned for Senator Barbara Boxer (D-California), before she retired in 2016 and was succeeded by Kamala Harris – who currently sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Goldman Sachs Launches a Cryptocurrency Called US Dollar Coin (USDC). A Company Owned by the Federal Reserve Will Regulate It.

A startup cryptocurrency company called Circle has been launched by Goldman Sachs, has gone live with a token pegged to the value of the US dollar and, therefore, it is called the US Dollar Coin, or USDC. It operates on the Etherium blockchain, and the goal is to have it replace US currency. The USDC will be regulated as a registered Money-Services Business under US money-transmission laws. As a virtual currency, it will be regulated under its New York BitLicense. Coinbase, which is owned by the Federal Reserve, and is on track to become the nation’s crypto-regulatory agency.  Coinbase soon will begin listing hundreds of crypto tokens and cryptocurrencies.  The USDC is a big step in the direction of a cashless society, which has been the dream of bankers and politicians for decades. -GEG

Goldman Sachs startup Circle, the Boston-based crypto finance company, has gone live with its stablecoin called the US Dollar Coin, or USDC.

This is the first cryptocurrency released by a major financial institution.

In order to avoid instability and inflation inherent to other unregulated cryptocurrencies, the value of the USDC will be tied to the dollar, according to CNBC.

“It unlocks an incredible amount of power for the dollar,” said Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle. “It’s basically a dollar that operates on the (Ethereum) blockchain.”

“Ethereum is the best bet but it’s not necessarily the end game,” he said. “For now it’s specifically on Ethereum.”

The USDC will be regulated as a registered Money Services Business under U.S. money transmission laws, and as a virtual currency, it will be regulated under its New York BitLicense. Furthermore, the company said it will hold deposits on a 1:1 basis in accounts that would be audited on a monthly basis. Each entity that wishes to enroll and issue USDC is held to the same regulatory-compliant standards.

Circle has said that the USDC will initially be available on its native trading platforms like the Circle Trade and Circle’s Poloniex exchange, and later available on other platforms like KuCoin, OKCoin, CoinEx, and others.

In a blog post, they noted: “Individuals and institutions can enroll in this service to deposit U.S. dollars from bank accounts [and] convert those dollars into tokens usable everywhere the internet reaches (subject to the token’s compliance controls), and redeem USDC tokens and cash out to bank accounts.”

“A fundamental building block of this vision is the tokenization of fiat currency itself, through what is now referred to as fiat stablecoins. A safe, transparent and trustworthy layer for fiat to operate over open blockchains and within smart contracts is a necessary precondition to the broader and more revolutionary potential of a crypto-powered global economy. USDC aims to meet this need.”

“What makes us different is that it is launched on an open sourced framework, meaning other companies can issue it [assuming they are a member of the CENTRE consortium],” said Jeremy Allaire, founder, and CEO of Circle.

In another blog post by Circle, they discuss how the USDC has received support from a wide crypto ecosystem. Popular wallet services like BitGo, Coinbase, imToken, and Ledger have extended support for the USDC. Payment processing giant BitPay is also part of the CENTRE consortium among 30 other partners.

“There are a number of banks who are excited about it and will support it.”

This is the Fedcoin

 

The USDC is designed to replace the dollar and become its digital version. This is the first step in replacing fiat paper currencies as we, in their words, move towards “a crypto-powered global economy.”

 

As of Sept. 29, the value of the USDC was around .0005. Waking up Sunday morning, it now shows a dollar. According to valuation charts, it has always been a dollar since Sept. 27th. Go to coinlib and see for yourself. The image above showing a low-high 24-hour fluctuation of .0005 – .001 no longer exists. According to sources who invested in the USDC before it hit a dollar, they never saw any returns … it’s as if it was always valued at a dollar. 

Coinbase On Track To Become The Crypto Regulatory Agency

Meanwhile, Coinbase has received approval from the SEC to move forward with a trio of acquisitions that will give the company the licenses it needs to list and trade federally regulated securities.

Toronto, Canada: Pro-Abortion Advocate Recorded on Video As He Kicks a Pro-Life Advocate

Toronto: A pro-abortion advocate defaced pro-life signs during a demonstration, and scribbled on the protesters’ clothing with a marker.  Marie-Claire Bissonnette, asked him to stop and began recording him.  He became agitated and made a roundhouse kick that hit her in the shoulder, claiming he was merely trying to knock her phone out of her hands.  He ripped her pin from her shirt before running away.  He has been identified as Jordan Hunt, but there is not yet known if charges will be brought against him for assault. In another incident the same day, a pro-life man was silently praying on a street corner when a woman approached him from behind and poured paint on him. He says that pro-abortion activists are becoming increasingly aggressive and violent because they have support from government and media. -GEG

Update #1:  Jordan Hunt has been fired from his job as a hairstylist and the woman who was struck says she will press charges against him.

Update #2:  Jordan Hunt was identified in a video taken earlier this summer that shows him running at a pro-life protestor and nearly pushing her in front of on-coming traffic. As the video continues, other protestors tell him he can’t get physical like that and he says he was just trying to destroy their signs.  Read more here. 

 

A shaggy, bespectacled male was caught on video kicking a female pro-life advocate during a silent protest on a Toronto street corner before running away when authorities were contacted, the victim wrote in an account for LifeSite.

Marie-Claire Bissonnette, a youth coordinator for Campaign Life Coalition in Toronto, said her attacker appeared to be in his late 20s and that she began recording him on her cellphone after he committed acts of vandalism to other pro-life advocates during Sunday’s incident.

What happened?

Bissonnette noted that a pro-abortion woman “peacefully” stood among the pro-life protesters holding a sign that read, “My body, my choice, my right.”

And then our hero emerged — decked out in a purple hoodie and what appeared to be a pentagram necklace.

First he took out two markers and defaced two pro-life signs, Bissonnette said. But after she warned her allies to shield their signs, he ran up behind five pro-life protesters — including a 10-year-old girl — and scribbled on their backs, ruining their clothing, she added.

Bissonnette said she then started recording and telling him he was committing destruction of private property. He replied by asking if a 16-year-old girl who gets pregnant after being raped should keep her baby, she said, adding that she tried to explain that her baby should be treated no differently than a 3-year-old child who may have been conceived by rape.

Update:  A Protester Revealed that Jordan Hunt Attacked Her Earlier this Summer

By Narcity

Earlier this summer, he almost pushed a woman in front of a truck.

Earlier this week, a man name Jordan Hunt became known in Toronto after a shocking video of him went viral. In the video, Jordan was caught roundhouse kicking a protestor at an anti-abortion rally in Toronto, knocking her phone out of her hands and injuring her.

Jordan is also now under investigation by police who were called to the rally after the kicking incident occurred.

But now, the pro-life organization behind the rally has released another video, saying that Jordan Hunt had also attacked one of their staff members at another protest earlier this summer.

In the video, a man, identified as Jordan by the organization’s staff, is seen running at a pro-life protestor and nearly pushing her in front of on-coming traffic. As the video continues, other protestors tell him he can’t get physical like that and he says he was just trying to destroy their signs.

Jordan has spoken out about the videos on his Twitter as well. In a tweet, he says he “will not apologize for defending a woman’s right to choose.” In the responses, he also goes on to say that he will never apologize to the woman he kicked, although in more harsh language, and also that he is a hero.

People have responded to the tweet from both sides of the issue, but an emerging theme is that, regardless of what side you’re on, it is still illegal to assault or kick people.

Three Scholars Hoaxed Academic Journals to Expose Absurd “Grievance Studies”

Three scholars, who say they are liberals, hoaxed academic publications with twenty papers, including a ridiculous study of canine ‘rape culture’ in dog parks in Portland, Oregon, that was published in the monthly journal, Gender, Place & Culture, which focuses on something called “feminist geography.” The study was written to expose the takeover of academia by “grievance studies” that include gender studies, critical race theory, postcolonial theory, and other ‘theory’-based fields in the humanities and social sciences. The authors, James Lindsay, a math doctorate, Peter Boghossian, an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University, and Helen Pluckrose, a London-based scholar of English literature and history, say that reasoned criticism from the outside is often ignored by academics, so they exposed it from the inside. Out of the twenty hoax papers they penned , seven were accepted, and four were published. Each of the hoaxers expect their careers to suffer as a result of their experiment, but Mr. Lindsay said the project was worth it: “For us, the risk of letting biased research continue to influence education, media, policy and culture is far greater than anything that will happen to us for having done this.” -GEG

Reactions to an elaborate academic-journal hoax, dubbed “Sokal Squared” by one observer, came fast and furious on Wednesday. Some scholars applauded the hoax for unmasking what they called academe’s leftist, victim-obsessed ideological slant and low publishing standards. Others said it had proved nothing beyond the bad faith and dishonesty of its authors.

Three scholars — Helen Pluckrose, a self-described “exile from the humanities” who studies medieval religious writings about women; James A. Lindsay, an author and mathematician; and Peter Boghossian, an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University — spent 10 months writing 20 hoax papers that illustrate and parody what they call “grievance studies,” and submitted them to “the best journals in the relevant fields.” Of the 20, seven papers were accepted, four were published online, and three were in process when the authors “had to take the project public prematurely and thus stop the study, before it could be properly concluded.” A skeptical Wall Street Journal editorial writer, Jillian Kay Melchior, began raising questions about some of the papers over the summer.

Beyond the acceptances, the authors said, they also received four requests to peer-review other papers “as a result of our own exemplary scholarship.” And one paper — about canine rape culture in dog parks in Portland, Ore. — “gained special recognition for excellence from its journal, Gender, Place, and Culture … as one of 12 leading pieces in feminist geography as a part of the journal’s 25th anniversary celebration.”

Not all readers accepted the work as laudable scholarship. National Review took “Helen Wilson,” the fictional author of the dog-park study, to task in June for her approach. “The whole reasoning behind Wilson’s study,” wrote a staff writer, Katherine Timpf, “is the belief that researching rape culture and sexuality among dogs in parks is a brilliant way to understand more about rape culture and sexuality among humans. This is, of course, idiotic. Why? Because humans are not dogs.”

Another published paper, “Going In Through the Back Door: Challenging Straight Male Homohysteria, Transhysteria, and Transphobia Through Receptive Penetrative Sex Toy Use,” appeared in Sexuality and Culture. It recommends that men anally self-penetrate “to become less transphobic, more feminist, and more concerned about the horrors of rape culture.”

The trolling trio wondered, they write, if a journal might even “publish a feminist rewrite of a chapter from Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.” Yup. “Our Struggle Is My Struggle: Solidarity Feminism as an Intersectional Reply to Neoliberal and Choice Feminism” was accepted by the feminist social-work journal Affilia.

Darts and Laurels

Some scholars applauded the hoax.

“Is there any idea so outlandish that it won’t be published in a Critical/PoMo/Identity/‘Theory’ journal?” tweeted the Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker.

“Three intrepid academics,” wrote Yascha Mounk, an author and lecturer on government at Harvard, “just perpetrated a giant version of the Sokal Hoax, placing … fake papers in major academic journals. Call it Sokal Squared. The result is hilarious and delightful. It also showcases a serious problem with big parts of academia.”
