According to a recent report by the Daily Caller, Imran Awan, the embattled Democratic House IT aide, still has an active email account on the House computer system. Awan’s email address, [email protected], is linked to Nathan Bennett, who works for Representative André Carson (D-IN).
Bennett currently works as Rep. Carson’s Deputy Chief of Staff. Currently, Carson is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, the House Homeland Security Committees, and is a ranking member of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Emerging Threats.
When questioned about the email address, Bennett stated that he has no control over that account. Bennett went on to add that: “However this happened, it was not with my consent or control…For the record, I do not, nor have I ever, had control of the [email protected] email account or any other account connected with Imran Awan or his family.”
According to one Democratic IT aide, Awan and Carson were very close, and used to play video games together in Carson’s office. The aide added that Awan had been teaching Carson a foreign language.
This comes just weeks after reports emerged indicating that federal authorities had opened an investigation as to whether the Awans stolen sensitive data, which they may have then sold to Russian or Pakistani intelligence. Disobedient Media previously reported that the scope of the scandal may be much wider than has been covered thus far by establishment press, with intelligence potentially having being passed to countries including Israel, Saudi Arabia and China via Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI.

In the aftermath of a right-wing rally Sunday that ended with anarchists chasing attendees from a downtown park, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin urged UC Berkeley on Monday to cancel conservatives’ plans for a Free Speech Week next month to avoid making the city the center of more violent unrest. “I don’t want Berkeley being used as a punching bag,” said Arreguin, whose city has been the site of several showdowns this year between, on the one hand, the left and its fringe anarchist wing, and on the other, supporters of President Trump who at times have included white nationalists. “I am concerned about these groups using large protests to create mayhem,” Arreguin said. “It’s something we have seen in Oakland and in Berkeley.” The mayor wants UC Berkeley to halt plans by a conservative campus group, the Berkeley Patriot, to host right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos during its scheduled Free Speech Week from Sept. 24-27...
“I’m very concerned about Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter and some of these other right-wing speakers coming to the Berkeley campus, because it’s just a target for black bloc to come out and commit mayhem on the Berkeley campus and have that potentially spill out on the street,” Arreguin said, referring to militants who have also been called anti-fascists or antifa. The anti-Yiannopoulos protesters inflicted $100,000 worth of damage to the school’s student union in February before taking to the streets of Berkeley, where several businesses’ windows were smashed...“I obviously believe in freedom of speech, but there is a line between freedom of speech and then posing a risk to public safety,” the mayor said. “That is where we have to really be very careful — that while protecting people’s free-speech rights, we are not putting our citizens in a potentially dangerous situation and costing the city hundreds of thousands of dollars fixing the windows of businesses.”
>“I obviously believe in freedom of speech, but there is a line between freedom of speech and then posing a risk to public safety,”
Free Speech is not the risk you retarded Commie mayor. Your antifa students are. Fucking lock them up.
And right there is the problem with Antifa. It's not what the speakers are saying that's the problem...it's *that* they're speaking at all. It would be easier for Berkeley to suppress a few pop-dissidents than protect their rights to speak peacefully because the Alt-Left demands it...easier both to do and to sell to the public. Which is a nightmare. Public opinion should not dictate who gets what rights, legislation should.
>And right there is the problem with Antifa. It's not what the speakers are saying that's the problem...it's *that* they're speaking at all.
Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion doesn't mean freedom of Politics; only the elites gets to decides what to do with the peasants.
Defenders of President Donald Trump are inundating Twitter with caustic attacks on former President Barack Obama over the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 – three years and six months before Obama took office.
The posts appear to be responses to criticism of Trump’s visit to Texas on Tuesday in the wake of devastating flooding in Houston following Tropical Storm Harvey. Many claim that Obama was golfing when Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans in August 2005, killing 1,245 people across the Gulf Coast.
>What was your response when Katrina hit and Obama was playing golf? At least Trump is prepared unlike your hero, Obama.

Obama was first elected president in November 2008 and took office in January 2009. He won a second term in 2012 and stepped down in January when Trump took office. President George W. Bush, who was in office during Hurricane Katrina, faced widespread criticism for the federal response to the disaster.
Obama, who at the time was a U.S. senator from Illinois, met with Katrina evacuees in Houston.

The Texas Biomedical Research Institute announced preliminary approval for a new and expanded “level 4” laboratory, built to the industry’s tightest safety precautions to study the world’s most lethal infectious diseases.
The level 4 lab allows scientists to work with infectious diseases for which there is no known cure, such as Ebola, Marburg and Lassa fever.
Google is likely silencing criticisms of its conduct — and quasi-monopolistic status — by purchasing influence across political non-profits and think tanks, according to a Wednesday-published report in The New York Times.
Part of Google’s political influence is its funding of political think tanks and non-profits — aside from direct lobbying of politicians — presumably to shape messaging beneficial to its interests. Criticism of the company’s operations from think tank and non-profit beneficiaries of Google’s donation is presumably silenced.
Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc., is the second-largest company in the world. Its market capitalization as of this article's publication is $647.8 billion. It handles over 81% of the world's internet searches and is the world's largest operator of internet advertising.
Barry Lynn, formerly director of the New America Foundation's (NAF) Open Markets program, was terminated by NAF after expressing support for the levying of a $2.7 billion fine against Google via European antitrust regulators.
Google is one of the NAF’s benefactors, having donated millions of dollars to the left-wing and Democrat-aligned think tank. The NAF has received more than $21 million from Google, Alphabet Inc.’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt, and Schmidt’s family foundation.
The NAF is headed by left-wing Clinton loyalist Anne Marie-Slaughter, a professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University. She was a senior State Department policy strategist between 2009 and 2011, under Hillary Clinton’s secretaryship.
Lynn is launching a new non-profit — its website entitled “Citizens Against Monopoly.” It accuses Google of censoring criticisms of its business conduct:

GOOGLE, DON'T BE EVIL.
>>Our mission was to protect liberty and democracy from gigantic corporate monopolies. When we criticized Google for its monopoly practices, our program’s funding was cut.
Google’s attempts to shut down think tanks, journalists, and public interest advocates researching and writing about the dangers of concentrated private power must end. As an immense corporation, it’s wrong for Google to wield its vast financial and political power to try to silence the writers and researchers working to promote sensible antitrust enforcement. This kind of unethical behavior violates Google's founding corporate code of conduct, "Don't be evil."
>"The idea was that we don't quite know what evil is, but if we have a rule that says don't be evil, then employees can say, 'I think that's evil.... Now, when I showed up, I thought this was the stupidest rule ever, because there's no book about evil except maybe, you know, the Bible or something."

“The Coast Guard is working very closely with our federal, state and local partners to make sure we do this as safely and quickly as possible,” said Capt. Tony Hahn, incident commander and captain of the port in Corpus Christi. “We are continuing port assessments and collecting data on damage, debris and pollution in order to regain full operation of the affected ports.
The port of Galveston and Houston will remain closed Wednesday.
“All Port Houston facilities will remain closed on Wednesday, August 30th due to the weather impact across Houston. We will be continuing to monitor weather conditions to determine when operations can safely resume. At this point no indications from the U.S. Coast Guard on when the Houston Ship Channel will reopen for vessel transits. Updates will be provided as more information is available,” Port Houston said in an update Tuesday.
On Tuesday, August 29, a group of officers and generals of the Polish Armed Forces arrived in Ukraine, headed by the chief of the General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces, Lieutenant-General Leszek Surovsky. This was announced by the head of the National Academy of the Army of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Pavel Tkachuk on his Facebook page.
"Being in the Lviv region, Lieutenant-General Leszek Surovsky will get acquainted with the specifics of the activities of the National Academy of the Land Forces, the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security, I believe that this will be an effective and fruitful continuation of the military-political dialogue between our countries," Tkachuk wrote.
