Roger Stone: “No Circumstances Under Which I Would Testify Against Trump”

AIWA! WE PRESS~~Former Trump political adviser Roger Stone tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper there are “no circumstances” under which he would testify against President Donald Trump. Cooper asked Stone if he loses sleep over the Trump probe.

“I know that there exists nowhere evidence of Russian collusion or WikiLeaks collaboration or any nonsense pertaining to John Podesta’s e-mail,” Stone said on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.

Roger Stone has one good reason for floating the idea of Hulk Hogan running for a U.S. Senate seat — and that reason’s sitting in the Oval Office right now. We got President Trump’s former adviser Thursday in NYC and got his reaction to Hulk telling us he’s not interested, for now, in a political career — and he’s urging the former wrestler to reconsider.

“I’m also mindful of any prosecutor’s ability to squeeze underlings to get them to compose testimony against a bigger fish,” he said. “I have not been contacted by the special counsel’s office. I made it abundantly clear that there is no circumstances under which I would testify against the president. I would not rule out cooperating if they think I can be helpful in some area, but beyond that, I have not spoken to them.”

Global media reaction to London terror attack

Salih Khater, 29, veered off the road careering into pedestrians and cyclists at Parliament Square, after spending the night cruising around London.

There were screams as the Ford Fiesta mounted the pavement and mowed people down at up to 50mph at 7.37am.

In a chilling echo of Khalid Masood’s murderous rampage on Westminster 17 months ago, the driver, from Birmingham, sped towards the Palace of Westminster – narrowly missing two police officers guarding the access road who jumped out of his path. He then smashed into a security barrier outside Parliament.

Despite hitting at least 15 cyclists and pedestrians during rush hour, no one was killed with only one female cyclist seriously injured.

Within minutes the driver, dressed in a white shirt, jeans and a black puffa jacket, was dragged from the driving seat of the crumpled vehicle by armed officers.

The terror suspect – thought to be a lone wolf – remained strangely calm and utterly silent, offering no resistance as he was handcuffed.

Police found no weapons or explosives.

Last night it emerged Khater, who was said to be of Sudanese origin, drove from his rundown flat in Hall Green, Birmingham, to London on Monday evening arriving just after midnight.

Americans! Don’t Panic, For Dehumanization Has Been The Language Of Choice For Dictators & Despotic Leaders Against Opposition Worldwide For Years, Their Baseline; United States President Donald Trump Is No Exception

U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: “When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out,

“Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi; The Late & Former Libyan Leader

Gaddafi likened elements of the uprising and ordinary people engaging in demonstrations against him “COCKROACHES” that would be “turned to chaff.” or “burned to ashes”.

Qaddafi is long gone; the troubles and tribulations of Libya remain perpetually unabated

Shaking his forefinger at the camera, he said he would defy America, superpowers, “men with turbans and long beards” and anyone else who tried to end his revolution.

In an interview in March that year, Gaddafi insisted: ” All my people are with me, they love me all. They will die to protect me, my people.”

But later in the month, as his forces appeared to be pushing the rebels back to their Benghazi stronghold, he made a chilling radio address to the people of the city, telling them: “We are coming tonight. There won’t be any mercy.”

Using the word “zenga”, meaning neighbourhood, Gaddafi had said his men would hunt opponents down right into their homes.

He said: “We will come zenga by zenga, house by house, room by room. We will find you in your closets.”

There was a more conciliatory tone in April, when, with the Nato bombing campaign well under way, Gaddafi made a widely-discredited truce offer to Libyan rebels, telling them: “We cannot fight each other. We are one family.”

In August, after being forced from his Tripoli compound, the dictator pledged “martyrdom or victory”, saying the move was a “tactical withdrawal”.

But Gaddafi had not finished. “If Libya goes up in flames, who will be able to govern it? Let it burn,” he declared from an undisclosed location last month.

“We will fight in every valley, in every street, in every oasis, and every town,” he said. “We won’t surrender again; we are not women; we will keep fighting,”

A week later he announced: “Gaddafi won’t leave the land of his ancestors. We are ready to start the fight in Tripoli and everywhere else, and rise up against them.”

He said of the rebel forces: “All of these germs, rats and scumbags, they are not Libyans, ask anyone.”

Still convinced of final victory, Gaddafi said: “The Libyan people are marching in their millions, in the streets and in the cities”

“The youths are now ready to escalate the resistance against the rats in Tripoli and to finish off the mercenaries. We will defeat Nato … Nato is rejected by the Libyan people.”

The toppled dictator’s voice was said to have been played on a loop on loudspeakers in the town of Bani Walid.

“This is zero hour,” he said. “Those who don’t fight will go to hell.”

United States of America President, Donald Trump

Donald Trump has called Omarosa a “dog” and a “crying lowlife” in a wild Twitter attack.

The attack on former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman is a marked step-up after days of vicious attacks ahead of the release of her book.

That book, named Unhinged, includes a whole range of explosive allegations including suggestions that there are recordings of the president using the n-word during recordings of The Apprentice. Ms Manigault Newman came to fame as a contestant on that show, before the president invited her to work in the White House.

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out,” Mr Trump wrote in his latest post. “Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”

Zimbabwe’s then President Robert Mugabe remark on journalists

Indeed, when we ourselves, individually and collectively, betray our own principles, we cannot proclaim ourselves as champions of human rights wherever they are violated. The principle of democracy must be a pervading one as much for the Commonwealth as for its every member.

“He has lived under a corrupt government, in a country that has been widely criticized by many nations for its oppressive regime,” Giles said. “Under these conditions he founded an independent paper, and kept it printing in the face of the strongest political opposition.”mugabe

Nyarota’s paper has had numerous conflicts with President Robert Mugabe’s government since its launch in 1999.

Image result for mugabe calls nyarota little nyarota
After six arrests, two death threats, and years of being harassed by Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s police and security services, Nyarota had developed a sense for trouble. And, as he hung up the phone, his internal alarms were screaming.

Nyarota launched the Daily News in 1999, with the goal of focusing on serious investigative journalism in a country where all the other media outlets were controlled by the government, he says.

Within a year, the Daily News was the most widely-read paper in the country, with a circulation of 100,000. The Herald, the government’s largest paper, saw a drop in circulation from 150,000 to 70,000.

During his tenure at the Daily News, Nyarota was arrested and taken into custody six times, he says, while running stories about human right abuses and corruption.

He received numerous death threats, he says, but he also won an award from Committee to Protect Journalists for his “courage to speak in a silence lands.”

In 2000, the Daily News’ headquarters were bombed, and in 2001, its printing press was bombed. For the past two years the paper was only able to print 70,000 copies a day.

In 1989, he was editor of the state-owned Bulawayo Chronicle. The paper built a reputation for aggressive investigations into corruption at all levels of government, and Nyarota became “something of a hero”. In the “Willowgate” investigation, Nyarota and deputy editor Davison Maruziva reported that ministers and officials from the government of President Robert Mugabe had been given early access to buy foreign cars at an assembly plant in Willowvale, an industrial suburb of Harare. In some cases, the cars were bought wholesale and resold at a 200% profit. The newspaper published documents from the plant to prove its case, including identification numbers from the vehicles.

“The government feels cornered, unpopular and relies on the true force of violence,” Nyarota says.

Mugabe said of Nyarota at the time: “Who is ‘little’ Nyarota? Who is he?” while describing Geoff Nyarota’s investigative journalism work as “over zealousness”. He once called the then   Zimbabwe African People’s Unon (ZAPU) leader – Joshua Nkomo,  a “snake that had taken over the chicken run.”

John McCain concession speech; 2008

bYCRIMSON TAZVINZWA~~Below is the full text of John McCain’s concession speech, delivered to supporters in Phoenix, Arizona

My friends, we have we have come to the end of a long journey. The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly. A little while ago, I had the honour of calling Senator Barack Obama to congratulate him.

(Crowd boos)

Please.

To congratulate him on being elected the next president of the country that we both love.

In a contest as long and difficult as this campaign has been, his success alone commands my respect for his ability and perseverance. But that he managed to do so by inspiring the hopes of so many millions of Americans who had once wrongly believed that they had little at stake or little influence in the election of an American president is something I deeply admire and commend him for achieving.

This is an historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for African-Americans and for the special pride that must be theirs tonight.

I’ve always believed that America offers opportunities to all who have the industry and will to seize it. Senator Obama believes that, too.

But we both recognise that, though we have come a long way from the old injustices that once stained our nation’s reputation and denied some Americans the full blessings of American citizenship, the memory of them still had the power to wound.

A century ago, President Theodore Roosevelt’s invitation of Booker T Washington to dine at the White House was taken as an outrage in many quarters.

America today is a world away from the cruel and frightful bigotry of that time. There is no better evidence of this than the election of an African-American to the presidency of the United States.

Let there be no reason now … Let there be no reason now for any American to fail to cherish their citizenship in this, the greatest nation on Earth.

Senator Obama has achieved a great thing for himself and for his country. I applaud him for it, and offer him my sincere sympathy that his beloved grandmother did not live to see this day. Though our faith assures us she is at rest in the presence of her creator and so very proud of the good man she helped raise.

Senator Obama and I have had and argued our differences, and he has prevailed. No doubt many of those differences remain.

These are difficult times for our country. And I pledge to him tonight to do all in my power to help him lead us through the many challenges we face.

I urge all Americans … I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together to find the necessary compromises to bridge our differences and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited.

Whatever our differences, we are fellow Americans. And please believe me when I say no association has ever meant more to me than that.

It is natural. It’s natural, tonight, to feel some disappointment. But tomorrow, we must move beyond it and work together to get our country moving again.

We fought we fought as hard as we could. And though we fell short, the failure is mine, not yours.

(Crowd: “No!”)

I am so…

(Crowd begins chanting)

I am so deeply grateful to all of you for the great honour of your support and for all you have done for me. I wish the outcome had been different, my friends.

The road was a difficult one from the outset, but your support and friendship never wavered. I cannot adequately express how deeply indebted I am to you.

I’m especially grateful to my wife, Cindy, my children, my dear mother … my dear mother and all my family, and to the many old and dear friends who have stood by my side through the many ups and downs of this long campaign.

I have always been a fortunate man, and never more so for the love and encouragement you have given me.

You know, campaigns are often harder on a candidate’s family than on the candidate, and that’s been true in this campaign.

All I can offer in compensation is my love and gratitude and the promise of more peaceful years ahead.

I am also, I am also, of course, very thankful to governor Sarah Palin, one of the best campaigners I’ve ever seen … one of the best campaigners I have ever seen, and an impressive new voice in our party for reform and the principles that have always been our greatest strength … her husband Todd and their five beautiful children … for their tireless dedication to our cause, and the courage and grace they showed in the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign.

We can all look forward with great interest to her future service to Alaska, the Republican party and our country.

To all my campaign comrades, from Rick Davis and Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter, to every last volunteer who fought so hard and valiantly, month after month, in what at times seemed to be the most challenging campaign in modern times, thank you so much. A lost election will never mean more to me than the privilege of your faith and friendship.

I don’t know, I don’t know what more we could have done to try to win this election. I’ll leave that to others to determine. Every candidate makes mistakes, and I’m sure I made my share of them. But I won’t spend a moment of the future regretting what might have been.

This campaign was and will remain the great honour of my life, and my heart is filled with nothing but gratitude for the experience and to the American people for giving me a fair hearing before deciding that Senator Obama and my old friend Senator Joe Biden should have the honour of leading us for the next four years.

(Crowd boos)

Please. Please.

I would not, I would not be an American worthy of the name should I regret a fate that has allowed me the extraordinary privilege of serving this country for a half a century.

Today, I was a candidate for the highest office in the country I love so much. And tonight, I remain her servant. That is blessing enough for anyone, and I thank the people of Arizona for it.

Tonight, tonight, more than any night, I hold in my heart nothing but love for this country and for all its citizens, whether they supported me or Senator Obama, whether they supported me or Senator Obama.

I wish Godspeed to the man who was my former opponent and will be my president. And I call on all Americans, as I have often in this campaign, to not despair of our present difficulties, but to believe, always, in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here.

Americans never quit. We never surrender.

We never hide from history. We make history.

Thank you, and God bless you, and God bless America. Thank you all very much.

Morning Joe Co-host Joe Scarborough: “American Democracy As We Know It Is In The Cross-hairs Because Of What Russia President Vladimir Putin Is Doing.”

Rachel Maddow wonders out loud for anyone who might know the answer, why Robert Mueller got a protective order on evidence in the George Papadopoulos case just days before making a sentencing recommendation.

 

bY CRIMSON TAZVINZWA ~~ President Donald Trump has already reached an agreement with one top Russian government official, who appears to be in lockstep with the U.S. leader, at least on Twitter, over his assessment of White House-Kremlin relations.

The Russian government has blamed the United States for the dire state of relations between the two superpowers for years, accusing it of launching unilateral sanctions, trying to stir up unrest in Russia and its former Soviet satellites and, most recently, of inventing the election meddling story.
Just hours before his first formal face off with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, Trump tweeted, “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”
And Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough found Trump’s statement frustratingly disagreeable and irritating.
Scarborough reacted: “In this case we have Rick Gates, Trump Campaign aide George Papadopoulos both cooperating with Mueller prosecutors, you have more than a dozen Russians indicted. What about Michael Cohen who is cooperating with Mueller investigation into whether President Donald Trump’ 2016 Campaign colluded with the Russians to discredit opposing candidate Hillary Clinton.

In a related story; during an interview Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week,” White House national security adviser John Bolton tried to explain the deeper meaning of Trump’s “rigged witch hunt” tweets.

“I think that what he’s suggesting is that his political opponents in the United States for well over a year and a half have been trying to say that somehow he’s a dupe of the Russian Intelligence Services, that he’s an agent of the Kremlin, that he’s been compromised by Russia, that he’s linked to Russia, that he takes orders from Vladimir Putin,” Bolton said. “I mean, really the conspiracies are about as obscure as you can imagine, just subjects of people’s imagination. That’s what he’s talking about.”

BlacKkKlansman Is the Rare American Film That Doesn’t Treat the KKK as a Joke

Spike Lee’s film about American racism strips away the clichés, proving that the absurd is possible—and also dangerous.

image

bY  ~~ There are many moments of levity in Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. It continues a tonal balance that has been one Lee’s greatest strengths as a filmmaker; he understands the cinematic medium as both intellectually serious and pure entertainment. The entire premise of BlacKkKlansman is one that’s gleefully played, in a nod to the exploitation films of the 1970s, as absurd and unbelievable. The notion of a black man in 1972 joining the Ku Klux Klan in order to infiltrate it from the inside is comedic and almost to good to be true—even if Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington) wrote the tell-all book about his undercover operation himself.

What felt immediately rooted in dire truth, however, was the extreme threat of the Colorado Springs chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. In recent years, the Klan—at least until last year’s Unite the Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia—has seemed like an antiquated organization. While David Duke (played in the film by Topher Grace) is still around and very much still offering his hateful rhetoric (and support for President Trump), the contemporary Klan has been depicted in popular media as a bunch of useless, moronic rednecks whose ridiculous obsession with pageantry and white supremacist drag borders on embarrassment.

I’m thinking, in particular, of two films from the 21st century that have used the Klan in similarly epic—and ultimately comedic—set pieces. The first is the Coen Brothers’ O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the 2000 retelling of The Odyssey that placed the events of Homer’s epic poem in Depression-era Mississippi. Its trio of escaped convicts (led by George Clooney) naturally find their way into a massive Klan rally (equipped with a cross burning, a striking cinematic sight directors love to revisit).

The scene is filmed as a musical number, with the robed Klansmen marching and chanting in unison. It also plays into the film’s Zelig-style narratives, with a Robert Johnson-inspired blues musician coming close to a lynching before he’s saved by our trio of white heroes (who ultimately, and laughably, kill off a larger-than-life John Goodman with the flaming cross). To be honest, everyone in the film comes across as dimwitted, post-Civil War rubes (even if O Brother plays strong homage to the one Southern cultural output deemed worthy of praise: its folk music), but there’s a sense that the stupidity of rural Southerners explains the backwoods racist ideology that the film isolates to its setting—both geographic and era-specific.

Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar-winning Django Unchained, like the Coens’ O Brother, should never be taken as anything remotely close to historical record. The film mixes Blaxploitation themes with a Western revenge narrative, with Tarantino’s ultra-violent tendencies and affinity for irreverent humor, to tell the story of the titular freedman and his white bounty hunter savior who travel across the South to find the former slave’s wife and bring her to freedom. During their trek, they run afoul of a powerful slave owner (as is customary for Antebellum South-set road movies) who calls upon his brothers in the Klan to run the film’s protagonists out of Tennessee.

Like in O BrotherDjango‘s Klansmen scene is stunning. And it’s also played entirely for laughs. The bumbling racists with their convenient and familiar Southern drawls are too stupid to pull anything off; they’re too busy bickering with each other about their costumes and their wives’ sewing skills. Meanwhile, the hundreds of torch- and gun-wielding Klansmen are no match for two erstwhile cowboys, who easily vanquish the mob of horse-bound spooks with dramatic flair.

Dee Rees’s 2017 film Mudbound featured Klan imagery in its a third act (and a lynching), a rare example in recent years in which the white extremists were depicted as they really are: a terrorist organization. But for contemporary, prestigious, and white American filmmakers like the the Coens and Tarantino, white supremacy is simply a joke—a cinematic trope as clichéd as the silver-tongued Southern accent that bespeaks a classless and clueless prejudice that seemingly evaporated in the last century. While satire can be an effective form of resistance—laughing at your enemy certainly can diminish their power—treating white supremacy as a joke only proves that, to white filmmakers, racism is not anything to take too seriously simply because it poses no threat to them.

WHITE SUPREMACY IS OFTEN A JOKE—A CINEMATIC TROPE AS CLICHÉD AS THE SILVER-TONGUED SOUTHERN ACCENT THAT BESPEAKS A CLASSLESS AND CLUELESS PREJUDICE THAT SEEMINGLY EVAPORATED IN THE LAST CENTURY.

Enter Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, which upends the myths of white supremacy on display in the aforementioned movies. Like O Brother and DjangoBlacKkKlansman is also a period piece; it takes place 45 years ago, a time that was fashionably different but ideologically similar. The racism on display isn’t exactly funny, not unless you find social discomfort humorous. Instead, it’s so overt and present from the beginning that it borders on the banal; by the time Stallworth’s partner Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) meets with the Klan members with whom Stallworth has been in contact, it’s extremely jarring to see the tension rise.

image

Lee’s drama becomes a true crime thriller when Zimmerman ventures, on his own, into the dark underbelly of Colorado Springs—a setting that’s so far from the typical racist hotbeds of the American South that it cannot simply be a narrative coincidence. Lee’s film breaks the rules by placing the most obvious avatars of American white supremacy—the Ku Klux Klan—outside the South’s borders and thousands of miles above sea level. These aren’t Appalachian hillbillies or down-in-the-Delta farmers expressing their hatred for their black neighbors; rather these are men who are over a century and thousands of miles removed from the battlegrounds of the Civil War. Lee refreshingly posits white supremacy as an American problem instead of a Southern one.

And his racist villains aren’t buffoons, either. Sure, there’s a sleepy-eyed drunk who casually points his own pistol at his head when bragging about his plans to shoot black people. Yes, even Topher Grace mines his great TV sitcom awkward charm for his portrayal of the savvy, yet dim, David Duke. But while Duke and his comrades are ultimately goofs, BlacKkKlansman doesn’t let us forget just how dangerous they are—and how the Klansmen use their tactics with different ways to manipulate and terrorize their enemies. The doofus with a gun is still an armed man—one of an army of angry white guys who aim their rifles at images of black children in the woods while dreaming of cleansing the earth of the minorities they see as a threat to their righteous visions of American identity. Duke, too, weaponized his dorky Ned Flanders-style persona to ensure that white supremacy remained normal and harmless.

image

But Spike Lee doesn’t give us a true happy ending, because the real-life events of the film didn’t put an end to racism in America back in 1972. The film’s opening coincided with the one-year anniversary of the white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia; its final scenes—a montage reminiscent of the minstrel images in Lee’s 2000 satire, Bamboozled—show footage of the chaos between the pro-white groups and those protesting their marching. Lee shows us, from multiple angles, the car that drove into the crowd leaving one protester, 20-year-old Heather Heyer, dead.

And the inclusion of President Trump’s comments after the conflict—the infamous remark about “very fine people on both sides”—is hardly overwrought. BlacKkKlansmanshows the double-pronged threat of white supremacy, both the short game and the long con. Stallworth and Zimmerman manage to stop the small-time racists who attempt violence against Colorado Springs’ innocent black residents, but they can’t stop David Duke, a figure who maintained low-level racial rhetoric within the fabric of American society.

Forty-five years ago, it may have seemed improbable that the American public would elect a president who openly expresses white supremacist ideals with such nonchalance rather than behind closed executive office doors; there’s a scene in the film in which the fictional Stallworth expresses his incredulity about that very possibility in a scene in which Lee winks to his audience, offering up a historical gag and a lesson that Trump’s ascendency didn’t come out of nowhere. For Stallworth, Trump would have been as laughable as the contemporary notion of a black cop joining the Ku Klux Klan in the early ’70s.

Yet both of those things have happened, despite how preposterous they may be. BlacKkKlansman reminds us that the absurd is possible, and it’s dangerous, and we can’t simply laugh it off and assume the joke won’t ultimately make history its punchline.

“[T]his is an administration that deals in lies,” he said. “This is an administration surrounded by supporters who say that they have got to do whatever they have to do and say whatever they have to say to try and protect Donald Trump.”

He explained that “the stronger the Mueller case is, the more the slanders increase and the more the attacks and efforts to delegitimatize the investigation increase.”

When asked about the claim among some conservatives claim Mueller is a bigger threat to the U.S. than Vladimir Putin, Wehner derided Trump’s enablers.

The special counsel’s investigation threatens the Trump presidency. It threatens the Republican Party’s agenda, too.

“Yeah, this is insane,” he said. “And it just shows you that with these people, there’s no bottom when it comes to defending Donald Trump.”

“If Robert Mueller didn’t have anything they would ignore him,” he continued. “But they know that he’s got something.”

“I don’t think they’re gonna get away with it,” Wehner concludes.
