Reports: Eric Holder Considers Jumping into 2020 Presidential Primary, Mike Bloomberg Prepares to Run


Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is again considering running for the Democrat nomination for president in 2020 after previously ruling out a run, a move that comes as former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has filed presidential primary paperwork in Alabama signaling he may be a late entrant to the race.

All of this comes as speculation builds that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee, may run again in 2020 as well.

Holder did very publicly flirt with running in 2020 before, even making the rounds to travel to some early presidential states for key speeches, but he ultimately announced earlier this year he would not run. In March 2019, he came out and said he would not be running in 2020 and that he planned to instead focus his efforts on redistricting efforts.

But now, given how weak the rest of the Democrat presidential field is in 2020, and with other top talent showing that the water is definitely still warm, Holder appears to be reconsidering and thinking about getting into the race after all.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson reported late Thursday evening that Holder has been discussing a late entrance into the crowded Democrat field with a handful of close advisers and political consultants:

It gets even more interesting. I hear from a good source that Eric Holder has been consulting strategists about possibly jumping into the Dem presidential race. NYT reports Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a late entry as well.

The news that Holder is reconsidering his decision to bow out on 2020 comes as Bloomberg has filed paperwork in Alabama, which has a Friday filing deadline, to run for president. He has not yet, according to multiple reports, made a decision on whether he will run for president or not, but filing paperwork in Alabama ensures he would have a shot at ballot access there should he mount a national campaign for the Democrat nomination.

Impeachment: Trump’s Son Tweets Name Of Alleged “Whistleblower”



Washington (AFP) – President Donald Trump’s son published on Wednesday the name of the alleged anonymous whistleblower whose complaint fired the impeachment inquiry against Trump, breaking strict conventions for protecting officials who reveal wrongdoing in government.

Amid calls by the president himself to expose the whistleblower, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted the name of a CIA analyst which has circulated online for weeks, and linked to a Breitbart news article implying the person was pro-Democrat and anti-Trump.

AFP could not independently verify the whistleblower’s identity and is not publishing the name.

But the revelation by the president’s son comes as the White House seeks to discredit the mounting impeachment effort in Congress against Trump, painting it as driven by politics.

“There is no Whistleblower. There is someone with an agenda against Donald Trump,” the president tweeted on Monday.

Standing beside Trump at a political rally in Kentucky Monday, Republican Senator Rand Paul threatened to expose the person and demanded they testify in Congress.

“We also now know the name of the whistleblower… I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name.”

Andrew Bakaj, the whistleblower’s lawyer, would not confirm or deny the reported name, but said Trump Jr. and others were endangering the person as well as the system built to protect whistleblowers.

“Identifying any name for the whistleblower will simply place that individual and their family at risk,” he told AFP.

A Dramatic Reversal Splinters Trump’s Impeachment Defense

President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense is being stripped away plank by plank by some of the administration officials caught up in his scheme to pressure Ukraine for political favors.

A dramatic reversal by Republican donor turned diplomat Gordon Sondland, who now says that a quid pro quo was needed from Kiev to free up military aid, rocked Washington Tuesday and undercut GOP strategy.
In testimony released by impeachment investigators, the US ambassador to the European Union also testified that he assumed it would be “illegal” for Trump’s fixer and personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to push Ukraine to investigate the President’s political opponents.
Sondland’s adjusted testimony did much to dismantle the President’s core and repeated defense: that he did not hold up aid to Kiev to force it to open a probe into Joe Biden

Trump Vowed To Shrink the Trade Gap. It Keeps Growing!!



WASHINGTON — The overall United States trade deficit continued to widen in the first nine months of 2019, data released Tuesday morning show, defying a Trump administration plan to try to shrink the figure by renegotiating trade agreements.

The trade deficit for both goods and services grew to $481.3 billion in the first three quarters of the year, up 5.4 percent from the same period last year, according to data released by the Commerce Department. Total American exports fell by $7 billion from the previous year, while imports grew by $17.8 billion.

The trade deficit in goods for the first nine months also widened slightly from the previous year, as exports of American products fell by more than imports.

Economists have argued against the Trump administration’s focus on the trade deficit, saying the figure is a poor metric for measuring American well-being or the health of the economy. They say the trade deficit continues to rise largely because the United States is growing faster than other countries around the world, which boosts American purchases of foreign products and weighs on its sales abroad.

E. Jean Carroll Sues Trump For Defamation

Via Daily Caller:

Columnist E. Jean Carroll, who accused President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s, is suing the president for defamation.

Carroll, 75, accused Trump of sexually assaulting her when she was 52 in a Manhattan Bergdorf Goodman dressing room. The accusation came ahead her book released July 2 titled “What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal.” An excerpt of that book describing the alleged sexual assault was published in New York Magazine on June 21.

The columnist for Elle Magazine filed a lawsuit Monday against Trump, alleging that he damaged her reputation and career when he denied her allegations in June, The New York Times reported.

Trump’s statement denying the sexual assault “are fully consistent with his tried-and-true playbook for responding to credible public reports that he sexually assaulted women,” the lawsuit reads, according to The NYT. The president denied sexually assaulting Carroll multiple times, adding on June 24 that “she’s not my type.”

Vatican Training More Priests While Exorcism Requests Are On The Rise

Rett Leasure is a security shift supervisor at Columbus College of Art and Design, but 25 years ago, he worked at a mental health facility for children and adolescents.

She was watching over a 10-year-old boy when his family asked if they could schedule a visit and bringing along their friends from church. As a mental health technician, she was required to be in the room during a visit.

“I had no idea they were actually planning an exorcism until they came for a visit,” Leasure said.

This was her first time experiencing anything like this. She said the family and their friends had their hands over him and were praying. She said he was laughing and then his personality changed completely.

Leasure said he became violent and back then in the facility, in order to protect the patient and others around, they would strap them down. Leasure said the boy was strapped down with five-point leather restraints.

“He came out of those and flipped on his back like it was nothing, that is impossible,” Leasure said.

Leasure said in the situation she experienced; the little boy’s eyes turned completely black while she was kneeling next to him.

“Not a whole lot scares me being in my line of work, the things I do, but I was frightened,” Leasure said.

The Catholic Diocese said there are four main signs of the demonic:

  • Speaking languages otherwise unknown to the person
  • Demonstrating strength beyond the normal capacity of the person
  • Elevated perception and having knowledge about things they shouldn’t
  • Resisting anything sacred

Father Vincent Lambert from Brookville, Indiana, said the final sign could cause a person to become violent and show manifestations. Manifestations are anything from eyes turning black, eyes rolling in the back of their head, foaming at the mouth, or bodily contortions.

Father Lambert is a priest, but also a trained exorcist. (WBNS)

Illegal Alien From Egypt Was Convicted Of Driving Car Into The Ocean to Drown His Two Autistic Sons Over Life Insurance

“The plan was to kill them and make it look like an accident.”

A Los Angeles jury found guilty an illegal alien from Egypt guilty of charges stemming from the deaths of his two autistic sons after he drove off a pier in April 2015.

Prosecutors claim that 45-year-old Ali Elmezayen planned and carried out what looked like an accidental crash into the ocean off of a fishing dock at the Port of Los Angeles.

His two severely autistic sons, 13-year old Elhassan and 8-year old Abdelkrim, drowned.

Also in the car was the mother of the two children, Rehab Diab, but despite not knowing how to swim, she was survived the crash with a help of fishermen.

“He lined the car up to the one spot that wasn’t blocked and hit the gas, the kids buckled inside,” Assistant U.S. Attorney David T. Ryan said. “The plan was to kill them and make it look like an accident.”

The jury found him guilty of aggravated identity theft, money laundering, mail and wire fraud. He also faces capital murder charges in a separate state trial.

Prosecutors accused him of abusing the boys’ mother and threatening to kill her. Although they were very poor, Elmezayen was able to pay for numerous life insurance policies on the boys and their mother for two years.

The family received $2,500 a month from the state to care for…
