It’s easy to lecture the world about walls when you’re protected by one.

That’s exactly what former President Barack Obama did today.

Grabien reports:

Sitting alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former President Obama lectured the current administration about its immigration policy Thursday. 

While not mentioning President Trump by name, Obama made clear to whom he was leveling his criticism.

“In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves,” Obama said. “We can’t hide behind a wall.”

As the security measures enacted to protect the former president show, talk is cheap.

Anarchists deface Confederate monuments — claim ‘contracted’ by New Orleans mayor

May 25th, 2017

A group of anarchist vandals claiming allegiance with New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu spray-painted Confederate monuments this week and left a note imploring residents to use tools left behind to deface the historic structures.

The vandals hit two Confederate monuments in the city – a statue of General Albert Pike and plaque honoring Abram J. Ryan, a Confederate poet and priest – on Tuesday. The culprits used red spray paint to leave derogatory messages with Pike and scrawled anarchist signs on Ryan’s memorial, WDSU reports.

The incident occurred just days after the city completed the removal of four Confederate monuments over the last several weeks, an issue dragged out for two years and caused deep divisions within the community.

The vandalism this week also included chisels and hammers left at the scene, as well as numerous copies of a peculiar flyer that blew through the park and neighborhood Wednesday.

“Concerning the imminent removal of the stella honoring the so called ‘poet laureate of the Confederacy,’ Abram Joseph Ryan.

A White House spokesperson said the House Intelligence Committee testimonies of former CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats confirmed that no “collusion” ever occurred between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The White House said the hearings “back up what we’ve been saying all along” and that after a year of investigations, “there is still no evidence of any Russia-Trump campaign collusion.”

The Daily Caller reports:

“This morning’s hearings back up what we’ve been saying all along,” a White House spokesman said in a statement Tuesday. “That despite a year of investigation, there is still no evidence of any Russia-Trump campaign collusion, that the president never jeopardized intelligence sources or sharing, and that even Obama’s CIA Director believes the leaks of classified information are ‘appalling’ and the culprits must be ‘tracked down.'”

Petition launched on White House website to appoint special prosecutor for Seth Rich case

May 24th, 2017
By Kyle Olson

Americans are taking advantage of a feature created by the Obama administration on the White House website to call for a “special prosecutor” to investigate the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

The petition, which has nearly 2,000 signatures, reads:

On July 10, 2016, Seth Rich was shot twice in the early morning as he walked back to his house in Washington D.C. Immediately after the crime, the death was called an armed robbery… but none of Seth Rich’s belongings were taken from him.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the family, said that there was evidence Seth Rich had contacted WikiLeaks and that law enforcement were covering this up. MSM is not covering this murder, instead pushing it to the side, so it is now up to us.The facts do not add up, law enforcement stopped covering the crime, and now it is time for us to fight for justice. Seth Rich deserves this.

The petition needs to obtain 100,000 signatures within 30 days in order to receive a “response” from the White House.

Internet hacker Kim Dotcom declared this week, “I know that Seth Rich was involved in the DNC leak.”

I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.

I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.

“He wanted to change that from the inside,” the hacker said.

He added:

I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.

PHOTOS: Walls protect Katy Perry — as she calls for ‘no barriers, no borders’ after attack

Do as Katy Perry says, not as Katy Perry does.

The pop singer, perhaps best known for singing “I Kissed A Girl” and for once being married to petulant gasbag Russell Brand, offered her version of a public policy solution after an Islamic terrorist detonated a nail bomb in the middle of a crowd of Ariana Grande fans.

During a Tuesday appearance on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Perry called on everyone to “unite” after the attack.

“Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other,” Perry said, adding, “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.”
