James O’Keefe, Veritas: “NYT Executive calls Veritas, “despicable” but videos prompt change”
“In just September of this year, the New York Times published a report titled, “Undercover with the Alt-Right.”
“The report went to great lengths to tie the Pro-Trump “Alt-Right” movement to known racists.
“The investigation was produced by a far-left group based in the UK that is funded by none-other than George Soros.
“While the New York Times gleefully publishes an undercover investigation that doesn’t hold up to scrutiny, they bash Project Veritas’ methods.
“Ironically, they don’t question the veracity of our reporting.
“So who is despicable here?
“While our investigations expose the truth, the reactions of those we expose highlight their own lack of integrity and hypocrisy.
“In fact, the public outcry from our undercover investigation has the New York Times scrambling to overhaul their ethical guidelines.
“But they should have waited to comment, because we’re not done yet.
“Stay tuned for Part III of our investigation of the New York Times that will be released VERY SOON.

Joy Villa, InfoWars: “‘STRAIGHT UP PROSTITUTION IS HOW HOLLYWOOD IS RUN THESE DAYS’”
“The Hollywood swamp is starting to crumble”
“In a segment with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, singer and avid Trump supporter Joy Villa described her firsthand encounters with entertainment industry scumbags who prey on vulnerable young women and men.
Sexual misconduct in Hollywood is “absolutely prominent,” according to Villa who said, “The reason it was kept secret so long is because it’s normal.”
“It’s very common for high level execs to prey on young artists… The biggest shock of this is that honestly, people in the entertainment industry are not shocked at this,” she continued.
Villa shared a personal experience where the CEO of a Burbank, California talent agency directly asked for sexual favors in exchange for fame and fortune.
Referring to the encounter, she said, ‘It was straight up prostitution and that’s really how Hollywood is run these days and it has been for a long time.’
“She predicted additional stories will come out soon because, ‘The tower of Hollywood, this Hollywood swamp is starting to crumble.’
“Tucker asked why ‘nobody has said anything,’ and Villa replied, ‘It’s buried by the actual establishment of Hollywood so it’s not just one evil guy, it’s everyone around them who are burying the story and not letting other people speak.’ . . .”
Byron Wolf, CNN: “Here’s why Obama stays quiet as Trump attacks his legacy”
“Washington (CNN)With each passing day, President Donald Trump unravels another piece of Barack Obama’s legacy. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The Paris climate accords. The Iran nuclear deal. Transgender people serving in the military. And, now, that most personal of policies for the former president: The Affordable Care Act.
“And yet Obama watches from the sidelines, mostly silent, as Trump punches holes in the dry wall of his freshly finished legacy.
“Sure, he’s living his best, most fabulous post-presidential life — jetting around the world, spending time with his family, spending time with the rich and famous, making millions to write books, making hundreds of thousands of dollars for the simple act of opening his mouth.
“But Trump is ticking through each of Obama’s policy achievements — foreign and domestic — and trying to dismantle them. . .”

Byron York, Washington Examiner: “Byron York: What’s behind Trump’s new executive actions”
“President Trump’s most recent high-profile executive actions — on Obamacare, immigration, and the Iran nuclear deal — do three big things.
“First, they push Congress to act, which involves more than just calling the bluff of Republican leaders who talked big during the Obama years but failed to produce once the GOP controlled both Congress and White House. In a larger sense, Trump’s actions point toward restoring a proper balance of power in which Congress makes law on issues that are clearly its constitutional responsibility. The president is using executive authority to pressure lawmakers to exercise appropriate legislative authority.
“Second, Trump has reinforced what many of his supporters find most appealing about him — that he can act as a leader not clearly aligned with either party.
“And third, Trump’s actions galvanize support among some of Washington’s most conservative lawmakers and thinkers, even some who have been highly critical of him in the past. . .”
Thomas Phippen, Daily Caller: “Report: Trump Doesn’t Expect Ginsburg And Sotomayor To Make It Through His First Term”
“President Donald Trump expects to nominate a total of four Supreme Court justices, claiming that three seats will likely become vacant during his first term, anonymous sources told Mike Allen of Axios.
“Trump expects to fill the seats of Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Sonia Sotomayor in addition to nominating Neil Gorsuch, who Trump nominated to fill former Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat earlier this year. Scalia died in 2016, well before Trump took office.
“Rumors about Justice Kennedy’s retirement floated around SCOTUS circles this summer, and many people expect the 81-year-old to retire before the end of Trump’s first term. That would make a total of two seats for Trump to fill.
“Asked by the source who the other vacancies would be, Trump said Ginsburg’s seat is likely to become vacant. “What does she weigh? 60 pounds?” Trump told the source.
“Asked who the fourth vacant seat would be, Trump replied “Sotomayor,” referring to the first justice nominated by former President Barack Obama. At 63, Sotomayor is rarely mentioned as a pending vacant seat on the court.
“But Trump believes that her longtime struggle with type-1 diabetes imperils her future on the court. “Her health,” Trump said. “No good. Diabetes,” Trump reportedly said. . .”
Nina Lamparski & Simon Sturdee, Yahoo!:” Austrian ‘whizz-kid’ in election triumph”
“Vienna (AFP) – Austria’s political “whizz-kid” Sebastian Kurz was on course Sunday to become Europe’s youngest leader, potentially in coalition with the far-right after its best result in almost 20 years.
“Kurz’s conservative People’s Party (OeVP) won 31.7 percent of the vote, followed by Chancellor Christian Kern’s Social Democrats (SPOe) on 26.9 percent, projections that were broadly in line with preliminary results showed.
“Close behind was the nationalist Freedom Party (FPOe) on 26.0 percent, twice that of their allies the Alternative for Germany (AfD) last month and close to its all-time record of 26.8 e
“Kurz, 31, nicknamed “wunderwuzzi” (“whizz-kid”), took over the OeVP in May and managed to attract supporters in droves by depicting himself as a breath of fresh air, talking tough on immigration and vowing to slash taxes and red tape.
“‘I promise I will fight for great change in this country. It’s time to establish a new political style and a new culture in this country,’ Kurz said Sunday.
“But to form a government, Kurz will have to enter a coalition with one of the other parties.
“The most likely partner is seen as the populist FPOe of Heinz-Christian Strache, 48, although this is far from guaranteed. . .”

Breitbart Jerusalem: “Nikki Haley: U.S. to Stay in Iran Nuclear Deal While Aiming to ‘Make It Better’”
“The Times of Israel reports: The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said on Sunday that the US would “stay” in the Iranian nuclear agreement negotiated between the world powers, including the US, and Iran, but “aim to make it better.”
“Her comments came two days after US President Donald Trump announced that he would not recertify the landmark agreement to Congress and would roll out a more hawkish approach toward Tehran.
“‘I think right now you are going to see us stay in the deal,’ Haley said during an interview on NBC’s Meet The Press on Sunday.
James Titcomb, UK Telegraph: “Every Wi-Fi network at risk of unprecedented ‘Krack’ hacking attack”
“Every Wi-Fi connection is potentially vulnerable to an unprecedented security flaw that allows hackers to snoop on internet traffic, researchers have revealed.
“The vulnerability is the first to be found in the modern encryption techniques that have been used to secure Wi-Fi networks for the last 14 years.
“In theory, it allows an attacker within range of a Wi-Fi network to inject computer viruses into internet networks, and read communications like passwords, credit card numbers and photos sent over the internet.
“The so-called ‘Krack’ attack has been described as a ‘fundamental flaw’ in wireless security techniques by experts. Apple, Android and Windows software are all susceptible to some version of the vulnerability, which is not fixed by changing Wi-Fi passwords. . .”
“Krack attack | What to do about it
- First things first: make sure you have a password on your Wi-Fi network. If you don’t, you’re at risk of all kinds of attacks.
- If possible, try not to connect to unsecured Wi-Fi networks – these are often seen in hotels, coffee shops and other public spaces. You can tell if a network is secure by a little padlock next to it when you’re selecting the network.
- The Krack attack affects secure networks, relying on a flaw in the ‘handshake’ between device and router to insert a new “key” that can decrypt communications, potentially stealing passwords and credit card data
- Most banking and online shopping websites use https, an encryption technique that protects you from this flaw. You can check by the little padlock in the top left of the screen by the address bar
- The best thing you can do is update your router. Check who makes your router and try their website to find out how to patch it. Updates may not yet be available.
- Security experts say that in the meantime, if you’re really concerned you should use a “virtual private network” (VPN) such as NordVPN or TunnelBear.
Lisa Mascaro, LA Times: “Republican lawmakers’ troubles deepen as Koch donors and Bannon take aim”
“”The messy dilemma congressional Republicans face was starkly visible at two venues in recent days, where powerful factions within the party vented their anger.
“At one — a gathering at an expensive New York hotel of wealthy donors aligned with the conservative Koch brothers — frustrations ran so high over the GOP’s inability to deliver on campaign promises that some warned of a wipeout in the 2018 midterm elections. Donors suggested that their financial backing for Republican campaigns could dry up if lawmakers fail to make progress, particularly on tax cuts.
“At a conservative religious summit in Washington, meantime, a similar displeasure was spilling from Stephen K. Bannon as the former White House advisor declared “war” on GOP incumbents who fail to adequately back the president. . .”
WSJ: “The Antidote to Steve Bannon”
“Lindsey Graham has good advice for Senate Republicans.
“One irony of Washington these days is that a press corps that claims to loathe right-wing political operative Steve Bannon can’t get enough of him. The media broadcast his every utterance, cheering on his declaration of “civil war” against Republicans in Congress.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.) captured that reality on CBS ’s “Face the Nation” Sunday when he said, “You’re going to ask me about Bannon, so I’ll just go and ask myself.” And he replied by giving Republicans good advice on how to defeat Mr. Bannon, his Mercer family financiers and Breitbart campaign operation.
“‘Yes, so, what is going on?’ Mr. Graham asked. ‘It’s a symptom of a greater problem. If we don’t cut taxes and we don’t eventually repeal and replace ObamaCare, then we’re going to lose across the board in the House in 2018. And all of my colleagues running in primaries in 2018 will probably get beat. It will be the end of [Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell as we know it.’
“The host teed up Mr. McConnell, but Mr. Graham elaborated: ‘Mitch McConnell is not our problem. Our problem is that we promised to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and we failed. We promised to cut taxes, and we’ve yet to do it. If we’re successful, Mitch McConnell is fine. If we’re not, we’re all in trouble, we lose our majority, and I think President Trump will not get re-elected.’
“That’s exactly right. Mr. Bannon is recruiting carpetbaggers or multiple-race losers, but they’ll have a chance if Republicans can’t deliver on their campaign promises. . .”
Paul Joseph Watson, InfoWars: “JULIAN ASSANGE: “THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH HILLARY CLINTON”
“Something darker rides along with it”
“’It is not just her constant lying. It is not just that she throws off menacing glares and seethes thwarted entitlement,’ he added.
“The Wikileaks founder went further, tweeting, ‘Watch closely. Something much darker rides along with it. A cold creepiness rarely seen.’
“As part of her global whinge tour, during an appearance on an Australian TV program, Hillary said Assange was a “nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator,” while also claiming (with no evidence) that ‘WikiLeaks is unfortunately now practically a fully owned subsidiary of Russian intelligence.’
“Responding to Hillary’s charge that Wikileaks never publishes any information about Russia, Assange pointed out that the group actually did so just three weeks ago.
“He also repeated the charge that Clinton is just attempting to distract from the fact that she initially conspired to elevate Trump because she thought she had an easier chance of defeating him.
“Meanwhile, speculation is raging on whether Assange is about to reveal who gave him the DNC emails during the 2016 election campaign after the Wikileaks founder tweeted a series of numbers that resemble an encryption key. . .”
Convention of States: “https://www.conventionofstates.com”
MARK LEVIN (10-13-17)
“On Friday’s Mark Levin show, The Democrats now stand with the Islamo-Nazi regime in Iran. They stand with a terror state that threatens to destroy our country, Israel and the surrounding Arab and Gulf states instead of with the best interests of America. How many times have you heard Democrats talk about the Constitution being a living and breathing document? Yet when it comes to the Iran deal, it’s untouchable, because Barack Obama signed it. Democrats are so filled with hate and a desire for power that even when Trump does the correct thing, they can’t accept that. It is astonishing how Obama sold out the U.S. and how the Democrat Party is in support of this. This deal was secured with the evisceration of the Treaty Clause of the Constitution. The same people who were behind securing this agreement are now claiming that the President not reject what they created. “Meanwhile, Congress has 60 days to fix the Iran Deal. Will Democrats use the filibuster to protect Iran? If they do they need to be called out for it. After that, Trump ended Obamacare’s illegal insurance company subsidies. Obama decided that in order to hold up Obamacare he would violate the Constitution and the ACA statute. His violation of Article 1 of the Constitution and the ACA statute was declared by a federal court, but Obama did not care and ordered the Treasury Department to issue subsidies anyway.
