Of course, she is.
Pelosi has been in Congress for 29 years, in that period of time the dimwit has only secured one award. It figures.
The moment she uttered, “I guess we’ll have to read the bill before you find out what’s in it,” (Source) she forever sealed her fate as the dumbest people in congress, including the entire Congressional Black Caucus.
Either Morris or Dennis Miller are likely correct, I just happen to be more fond of Miller calling her “Bat shit Crazy.
Dennis Miller on the issue when the “Big-eared bony assed negro,” when the was playing president.
Bat shit crazy, but senile still has a nice ring to it.
NOT NEARLY THE END
Simply Linda tells me Upstate New York is a wonderful place to live.
Never mind the high taxes and the fascist leadership.
We now have evidence that Adolph Hitler is still alive and reasonably well, living in New York.
But, wait, now they want to take her First Amendment Right of Free Speech from her.
Perhaps she’s ready to move to an equally nutty place, California,
Seriously, the bill contains no exception even for material of genuine historical interest; after all, such speech would have to be removed if it was “no longer material to current public debate.” Nor is there an exception for autobiographic material, whether in a book, on a blog or anywhere else. Nor is there an exception for political figures, prominent business people, and others.
But the deeper problem with the bill is simply that it aims to censor what people say, under a broad, vague test based on what the government thinks the public should or shouldn’t be discussing. It is clearly unconstitutional under current First Amendment law, and I hope First Amendment law will stay that way (no matter what rules other countries might have adopted).
In a bill aimed at securing a “right to be forgotten,” (Source) introduced by Assemblyman David I. Weprin (Source) and (as Senate Bill 4561 (Source) by state Sen. Tony Avella, (Source) liberal New York politicians would require people to remove ‘inaccurate,’ ‘irrelevant,’ ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive’ statements about others…
- Within 30 days of a ”request from an individual,”
- “all search engines and online speakers] shall remove … content about such individual, and links or indexes to any of the same, that is ‘inaccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive,’ ”
- “and without replacing such removed … content with any disclaimer [or] takedown notice.”
- “ ‘[I]naccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’, or ‘excessive’ shall mean content,”
- “which after a significant lapse in time from its first publication,”
- “is no longer material to current public debate or discourse,”
- “especially when considered in light of the financial, reputational and/or demonstrable other harm that the information … is causing to the requester’s professional, financial, reputational or other interest,”
- “with the exception of content related to convicted felonies, legal matters relating to violence, or a matter that is of significant current public interest, and as to which the requester’s role with regard to the matter is central and substantial.”
Failure to comply would make the search engines or speakers liable for, at least, statutory damages of $250/day plus attorney fees.
As The Washington Post’s Eugene Volokh rages, (Source) under this bill, newspapers, scholarly works, copies of books on Google Books and Amazon, online encyclopedias (Wikipedia and others) — all would have to be censored whenever a judge and jury found (or the author expected them to find) that the speech was “no longer material to current public debate or discourse” (except when it was “related to convicted felonies” or “legal matters relating to violence” in which the subject played a “central and substantial” role).
He has “obtained passports for an AQ associate in Syria, provided medical supplies to an injured Syria-based AQ associate,” and “worked with an [Al Nusrah] associate to provide hundreds of thousands of dollars to [Al Nusrah] members in Syria.”
He has also “solicited donations” for Al Nusrah members, sending “approximately $20,000” to one of them in late 2015.
At some point in 2014, al-`Anizi “was appointed as AQ’s representative in Syria by AQ senior leadership.”
Treasury previously identified another jihadist, Abu Khalid al Suri, as “al Qaeda’s representative in Syria.” Al Suri, a senior figure in Ahrar al-Sham, was killed in Feb. 2014.
Treasury ties al-`Anizi to two other designated al Qaeda supporters, one of whom is his brother, Abdullah al-`Anizi.
“Prior to 2014,” Treasury says, al-`Anizi provided his sibling with “financial support” that was used “to fund terrorist operations.”
In 2015, Al-`Anizi “sought assistance from AQ financier” Sa’d al-Ka’bi “to facilitate the travel of AQ-associated individuals.” Al–Ka’bi has organized fundraising efforts for Al Nusrah in Qatar.
The US Treasury Department announced today that Muhammad Hadi al-`Anizi, who is “based in Kuwait,” has been designated as a terrorist. Al-`Anizi, a “terrorist facilitator, and financier,” has “provided extensive material and financial support” for both al Qaeda and its arm in Syria.
Today’s designation is the latest in a series targeting al Qaeda’s support network inside Kuwait.
Treasury traces Al-`Anizi’s career back at least a decade to 2007, as he allegedly supported al Qaeda at the time.
Much of his work since 2014 has been in service of al Qaeda’s Syrian branch, formerly known as Al Nusrah Front.
“From raising funds to facilitating the travel of terrorists, al-`Anizi is responsible for providing key financial and logistical support to Al Nusrah Front and Al Qaeda,” John E. Smith, the director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), said in a statement. “The Treasury Department will continue to aggressively target Al Nusrah Front’s and Al Qaeda’s financial structures to further disrupt their ability to conduct terrorist attacks.”

Let’s get serious, did Nixon’s Watergate Plumbers ever testify?
Not at all, the case was tried in the newspapers.
It’s folly to believe that those who work in whatever capacity for the CIA, FBI, NSA, who do their dancing in the dark would tell the truth if called upon to testify.
They would likely take the Fifth Amendment or perjure themselves until those doing the question would give up, throwing their hands up in exasperation.
They are not called “Spooks,” without good reason.
Of course, there is music for this piece. (Source)
The House intelligence committee on Wednesday ordered U.S. snooping agencies to reveal whether they eavesdropped on any Trump or Clinton campaign personnel last year, and if so, whether they illegally “unmasked” any of those people by publicly revealing their communications.
The committee is conducting a high-profile investigation into Russian efforts to influence the U.S. election, and also whether there’s any veracity to President Trump’s tweeted claim that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower last year.
So far, the committee’s two top lawmakers said, there’s no proof to back up Mr. Trump’s claim.
But Chairman Devin Nunes said there is evidence that crimes were committed to revealing communications between former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the U.S.
He said they want to find out whether anyone else was ensnared by intelligence collection.
“The committee is concerned that [U.S. persons’] identifiable information may have been mishandled in violation of approved minimization and dissemination procedures,” Mr. Nunes and Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s ranking Democrat, said in a letter demanding answers from the FBI, the CIA and the National Security Agency.
They said they wanted information on Friday.

They nailed today 50 years ago.
They didn’t foresee the Marxist, communist professors on college campuses brainwashing students.
Of course, now the lying to students begins at a far earlier age.
“LOS ANGELES: Jack Webb (R) now producing, directing, and starring in Universal TV’s ‘Dragnet 1966’ receives his old police revolver and badge 714 from Los Angeles Police Chief William H. Parker. In 1958 when Webb stopped production of his ‘Dragnet’ series, he turned his revolver and badge over to Parker.
That’s right, while prayer has been outlawed in schools, the wonders, peace, tolerance and love are taught to 9th-grade students in many schools in the U.S.
Islam is a totalitarian cult of death and little more.
Funny, I try to leave home without them and carry 3 or 4 R.P.G’s instead.
Arriving in your own bulletproof tank is an equally added nice touch!
The only question remaining here is why just 50%?
If they want to play make them pay.
If not they can keep their spies/diplomats in their own country.
The U.N. has not shown itself to be a particularly good agency at doing anything that falls in line with their mission statement.(Source)
