In yet another crushing defeat for Trump's fascist sycophants, the GoFundMe campaign that aimed to raise $1 billion for the border wall is shutting down, and the $20 million raised will be refunded to donors.

GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne told INSIDER that when the campaign was started, founder Brian Kolfage promised donors that all donations would be used to pay for a border wall between the US and Mexico if the $1 billion goal was met.

"However, that did not happen," Whithorne said. "This means all donors will receive a refund."

Kolfage, a US veteran and Trump supporter, updated the campaign's GoFundMe page on Friday announcing the refunds. He also introduced a new 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named "We Build the Wall, Inc.," where donors can redirect their refunds to if they still wish for their money to be used, in one way or another, to build a wall.

In his update, Kolfage said that upon seeing the fundraiser's "success," he reached out to several experts in "politics, national security, construction, and finance" and created a team that "has spent countless hours over the holidays reviewing all issues pertaining to the construction of a southern border wall."

"Unanimously," Kolfage wrote, "we have all come to the conclusion that the federal government won't be able to accept our donations anytime soon."

This is why, he wrote, his new non-profit will now accept any donations previously made to the GoFundMe.

Among the group of "experts" listed on the GoFundMe page are Erik Prince, an American businessman known as the founder of the security firm Blackwater (he is also Betsy DeVos' brother), Sheriff David Clarke, the former Milwaukee County sheriff known for his controversial views on immigration, and frequent Trump campaigner Steve Ronnebeck.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/01/18/cnn-msnbc-impeach-trump-buzzfeed-mueller/
CNN and MSNBC collectively used the word “impeach” nearly 200 times on Friday before the Special Counsel’s office disputed a bombshell report by BuzzFeed News.

According to a Daily Caller review of TV clipping service Grabien, personalities on CNN and MSNBC used the words “Impeach,” “Impeachment,” or “Impeachable,” 179 times.

The review included only original Friday programming and ran up until each network learned that BuzzFeed’s report was in dispute — shortly before 8 pm.

CNN mentioned impeachment 82 times while MSNBC mentioned it a whopping 97 times.

>Inside the Justice Department, the statement was viewed as a huge step, and one that would have been taken only if the special counsel’s office viewed the story as almost entirely incorrect. The special counsel’s office seemed to be disputing every aspect of the story that addressed comments or evidence given to its investigators.

>The story had claimed Cohen had acknowledged to Mueller’s prosecutors that the president directed him to deceive Congress about key facts linking the president to the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow. BuzzFeed also said Mueller learned about the directive to lie from “interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.”

>Mueller’s denial, according to people familiar with the matter, aims to make clear that none of those statements in the story are accurate.

A generation of post-millennials is poised to enter the electorate as the most liberal age cohort ever, fueled by unprecedented diversity and expansive views of the role of government.

On issues ranging from the treatment of racial minorities to climate change to diversity in society, the post-millennial generation — dubbed Generation Z by demographers — looks a lot more like the millennial generation than like their parents in Generation X or the baby boom generation, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.

But Generation Z takes an even more liberal view of the role of government in society than do millennials. Seven in 10 members of Generation Z say the government should do more to solve problems, while just 29 percent say government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.

Just under two-thirds of millennials say government should do more. About half of those in Generation X and the baby boom generation agree.

Many of the attitudes held by Generation Z — those born after 1996, who are now between the ages of 13 and 21 — are formed through experience with an unprecedented level of racial and societal diversity, said Kim Parker, Pew’s director of social trends research.

“They’re overwhelmingly the most racially and ethnically diverse generation we’ve seen.
They’re on track to be the most well-educated generation we’ve seen. They’re less likely to drop out of high school and more likely to go to college,” Parker said.

One measure of the evolution of the youngest generation is that more than a third of them, 35 percent, know someone who prefers to be addressed using gender-neutral pronouns, compared with just a quarter of Millennials and less than a sixth of those in Generation X.

The left is an alliance between white progressives and non-white minorities.

Gen Z is socially more socially conservative than previous generations because it is less white. Non-Whites generally oppose LGBT rights, feminism and all forms of social progressiveness. But that won't stop them from voting for open borders and economic hand outs.

They live in rural areas filled with poverty, the few who are wealthy, have father's who "own town" and can do whatever they want.

The poor ones get indoctrinated at church or deer camp and then wonder why rich girls don't just sleep with them easily.

Same thing applies to the rich boys, as girls usually marry up, while boys marry across their same income bands.

Then they come out of school into the same lack of jobs their fathers face and which creates a cyclical fear of no escape and that what was "owed" to them has been taken.

Fox News then tells them it wasn't rich kids father or corporations, but instead Mexicans who took their jobs.

Worse, Hispanic guys who worked hard in high school as immigrant families trying to prove themselves now have all the trades certs needed to come to their towns and do jobs the white dudes never pursued the education for.

Then Trump shows up and says he'll fix it with a Wall.

So is this the damage control the racist right has come up with to justify why they're dying out among the youth?

A reminder that this is what young conservatism is. And it's a a textbook example of why Gen Z is disgusted with it.

From Mueller's team: Buzzfeed wrote fake news and LIED about Trump/Cohen conspiracy.

inb4 left-wingers start saying Mueller is not credible.

>Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday issued a rare statement disputing a bombshell news report claiming President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

>“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said Friday.

Don't you fool yourself for a second believing Mueller put out the unprecedented statement debunking the story out of honor, or worry for the state of the country, or because he is /ourguy/. He did that because he was fucking scared. The probe not only has being leaking to the media, but obviously coordinating with the Democrats. But he knows that this story would implicate his office directly and would be more than enough to prompt a criminal investigation from the DOJ. Mueller didn't want his prosecutors answering questions under lie detectors, answering questions such as "have you ever leaked to the media"? "Have ever talked about investigation matters to members of congress"? which is what would literally happen under these circumstances, and already happened in the past.
The Mueller's office statement tonight actually reveals how deep his little coup operation is running, that he did what prosecutors never do which is correct a media story. He killed it to keep the hounds away.
Now was the Buzzfeed story just made up, or was it planted by someone who knew the DOJ regulations and thresholds for misconduct? By someone allied or close to the POTUS, that understand the need to discredit the probe and create a factoid to launch a counter investigation? Maybe someone who knew that the media would take the bait and make the factoid credible and truthful enough with all the hysteria, without realizing they were actually putting a big crosshairs on the Mueller probe.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a blunt put-down Tuesday against White House national security advisor John Bolton over his pledges to ensure Turkish nonaggression against Kurds who fought against the Islamic State in Syria.

“We cannot accept Bolton’s messages given from Israel,” the Turkish president said, adding that Bolton made a “serious mistake,” Reuters reported.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-46792329

Turkey's president has strongly rejected US calls for his country to protect Kurdish fighters in Syria.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said such statements made by US National Security Adviser John Bolton at the weekend were "unacceptable".

Mr Bolton was in Ankara to seek guarantees that a Kurdish militia battling the Islamic State group would be safe after US troops pulled out.

Turkey regards the People's Protection Units (YPG) as a terrorist group.

President Donald Trump's former fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen paid a technology expert to rig online polls in Trump's favor, according to The Wall Street Journal.

John Gauger, the owner of Red Finch Solutions and chief information officer at Liberty University, said Cohen offered him $50,000 to manipulate two news sites' polls, the Journal reported Thursday, citing a government document and a person familiar with the matter.

Gauger said Cohen handed him a Walmart bag loaded with about $12,000 in cash during a 2015 meeting at Cohen's Trump Organization office. Cohen also threw in a boxing glove he said was once worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter.But he never paid Gauger the remainder of the promised $50,000, the Journal said.

Cohen did not deny the report in a tweet Thursday morning, saying, "What I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of" Trump.

"I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn't deserve it," wrote the man who once said he would "take a bullet" for the president.

Gauger did not appear to have much success at moving the needle in the polls he was paid to manipulate. In January 2014, Cohen asked Gauger to sway a CNBC online poll on the top American business leaders with a program that could vote for Trump repeatedly, the Journal report said. But Trump did not break into the top 100.

In February 2015, Cohen asked Gauger to boost Trump in a Drudge Report poll on potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates, according to Gauger. Trump ended up coming in fifth with 5 percent of the vote.

Cohen also asked Gauger to create a Twitter account with the handle @WomenForCohen that would be run by a female friend of Gauger's to portray Cohen as a "sex symbol" and hype his statements in favor of Trump's presidential campaign, the Journal reported.

Trump's wall would be the 32nd active national emergency

If President Donald Trump invokes a "national emergency" at the US border and uses emergency powers to bypass Congress and obtain funding to build his long-promised border wall, a battle in the courts over the questionable legality of spending those dollars would be virtually guaranteed.
But the United States is no stranger to national emergencies.
In fact, the US has been in a perpetual state of declared national emergency for four decades, and the country is currently under 31 concurrent states of emergency about a spectrum of international issues around the globe, according to a CNN review of documents from the Congressional Research Service and the Federal Register.

42 percent people who use medical marijuana quit taking at least one prescription altogether once they have their cannabis card, a new study reveals. Another 38 percent reduced the amount of a different drug they were taking.

Most of the approximately 400 people that answered the University of Michigan survey said that they had used marijuana recreationally in the past, so the shift to the substance being legitimized might a sticking point. For the 26 percent of study participants that weaned themselves off of potentially dangerous drugs like OxyContin, it's likely for the best.

It's worth noting, however, that some patients incorrectly believe that cannabis can treat conditions like cancer itself - not just side effects of chemotherapy, like nausea.
